So on Monday morning the feckless Obama Administration may well have launched a new military op in MENA but short of the ability to find in the USA a qualified candidate to run DHS as Secretary or Deputy Secretary?

So on the 12th anniversary of 9/11/01 how is DHS doing on its three biggest priorities? [Note these are from the public record as to reasons for creating DHS]

1. WMD issues and note the new Executive Order of August 1st on Chemical Safety for which DHS has the only regulatory role in the Executive Branch does not mention DHS?

2. CIP including cyber security!

3. Collection, analysis and dissemination of domestic INTEL while protecting privacy and civil liberties and civil rights?

A wonderful new investigative book issued written by Sherry Fink on the operations of Memorial Hospital in NOLA during Hurricane Katrina.

I have been thinking of how depraved society and government is today and then not very different than some 228 years ago in Bonn when little 8 year old Ludwig gave his first concert after spending a year being mentored by Haydn and Mozart in Vienna….

I read the news that folks have been killed, young and old by chemicals and one reads how easy it is to kill another on the streets of Chicago and so on and so forth and well, God has given each of us so many Blessings in so many varied ways and the lack of respect we show towards one another, the depravity of so many and the oppressed with little hope..what a shame. As an elder now hopefully recovering from pneumonia and seeing how precious Life is at any age and truly the wonder of each of us and we see such divisiveness, such self-serving mannerisms…for me, I will as many others never forget here in America the blatant lies shoulder to shoulder expressed by Barry Obama and Ms. Hillary at the “Benghazi Massacre” for We never leave anyone behind…a breach of faith, treason I shout!

While we owe so much to so many whether at NSA, DHS and every other agency and law enforcement personnel everywhere who are dedicated and do their utmost to protect us and the Constitution despite the corruptness of the AG and his office, while birth rates have drastically fallen and folks are truly worried about the economy and food banks locally having difficulty keeping their shelves stocked….there is much consternation and a waning confidence that those we have “entrusted” by precious vote, therefore much inclined to say that the future looks bleak and without repentance, scripture dictates the arduous road ahead….

Regarding Syria, 1300 killed by whomever by chemicals and the outrage we hear, yet 100,000+ have been killed and a global community evidently indifferent.

Syria is not our problem alone and if the corruptness prevails at the UN as it has for so, so long, America, broken by the further $6.2 trillion deficit in the last five years and just plain broke and no one to lead…well, folks, we are not the America of before and the policemen of the world for we, too have chosen to stray from from scripture and to circumvent our Judeo-Christian principals fail so miserably in challenging ourselves, to achieve…to attain…to innovate and manufacture and we have allowed Barry Obama to circumvent the Constitution without any repercussion…

Almost humorous, “smug-smiled Pelosi” with her millions and millions in her personal checking account proposes attack on Syria…what the ….does Pelosi know of war as she so abused her oath being flown back and forth to her home at taxpayer expense and so many other stories of so many on both sides of the aisle showing and respect for constituent or the privilege to serve the community….so many, so abusive…what a pity!

The spirit of America is slipping by every day. So many willing to compromise themselves and others. Few willing to discipline themselves and understanding that only a few select can sit compose and play the violin so eloquently and with the preciseness of a tomahawk missile as Ludwig at eight years old, the lack of laissez-faire conveyance towards a government gripped by racial and slavery issues of the past in this 21st century and “enslaving” so many by an ever evolving and burdensome government towards the individual stifling any opportunity for independence, creativity prerequisite for we as a nation to again lead, to assure that present laws are enforced and those violating visa and immigration laws, treated as criminal and violation of the law….

“The feckless Obama Administration” a legacy which will be written of a half-white man with empty rhetorical rantings from the Rev Wight-Obama pulpit and being attentive hearing the Rev Wright who Barack Obama chose to listen to for 20 years….”Tehran has the right to WMD as long as the ‘Zionists’ have such in hand” – and while we cry for real journalism, having witnessed the depravity of America gain foothold, little hope held for America and now watching the new fast deployment Army of Germany beginning to march forward as billions, yes, billions in weapons being manufactured and distributed throughout the Middle East as Germany fills the void today left by a far less enlightened America than when our cognizant forefathers forged a nation based on Judeo-Christian principles and understanding that any Democracy must have strong arsenal and its people, the right to bear arms for all lawful purpose!

Germany in its quickened pace is encircling Tehran and as events unfold and even Hezbollah and Hamas frown and turn their back on Assad to their own astonishment, unfortunately Germany who is our arch enemy will bring the world to War and much calamity and sometimes I wonder why our Creator has promised to lift us from such outrageous and selfish ways, however I am confident that while tears in his eyes for again as in history, with God witness to all, he continues to see man seeking to raise sword towards another and abuse men, women and children in the lust for power and oppression in such wicked ways, God promises to carry us forward and I certainly hope teaching all men and women how to Respect Life and one another and that no one has the right to judge another and harm or kill for it is only our Creator who retains the Right to judge….

God Bless America and each of us for while we have – NO business in Syria alone without others and many others – we should talk of the corruptness of the UN and a global community who says it is ok to use chemicals to kill human beings, however this “Chicago city street slicker’ has no idea what he is doing and continues to keep the White House Doors Closed to our Kids who deserve better, but heck, the select invited rappers to the WH parties portrays the narrow-minded and biased perceptions held by Barry and Michelle Obama who shipped the bust of Winston Churchill back to #10 Downy Street when entering the WH and replaced it with Marin Luther King which clearly depicted one who has little regard to history and very much keeping in Barry Obama’s pledge to Hussein Obama and his Kenyan pals and their anti-Christian and anti-colonialism….

The “beltway thieves” are many on both side of the aisle and the corruptness of special interest groups who have ruined this nation will soon find themselves with little to represent as a nation riddled with poverty and only its arch enemy, Germany prospering for taking advantage of a limp and yes, “feckless” government with we here on “Main Street USA” having less true representation than when our forefathers fled the King!

One should read the Bible, the road to choose is clearly written in scripture!

If Congress does not hear us on “Main Street USA” w/ref to Syria as we know here on “Main Street USA” quite well that it is Tehran who has always been the culprit and should be dealt with in swift and decisive action, then maybe given this endless beltway charade, just maybe, maybe Christopher Tingus from Harwich (Cape Cod) and millions and millions of non-partisan Americans can convey our consternation w/any attack on Syria by our spokesperson who says it as clear as one can express:

A good description of – Boston Strong – and why we share such a spirited enthusiasm about our metro area and the rich history of our communities and how they played such a great role in founding our beloved Republic!

Founded in 1630 by English Puritans, Boston is the nation’s oldest city. Home to fiery revolutionaries such as Samuel Adams, who staged the Boston Tea Party to protest taxation and burdensome fees by King George III. From the Old North Church in today’s North End, Paul Revere began his midnight ride to warn of the British invasion. From Boston to Lexington and Concord, we take much pride in our history!

Rooted in its 400-year history, the city is also known worldwide for the brownstone architecture built in historic Back Bay during the Gilded Age. Old neighborhoods and narrow, crooked streets throughout Boston, which are more fit for walking than driving, make it the nation’s most European-style city.

We are Boston Strong and continued accolades to all the first responders who were on scene within minutes at the Marathon bombings! We are so proud!

God, bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her,
And guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains
To the prairies
To the oceans white with foam,
God, bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America
Land that I love
Stand beside her
And guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains
To the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America
My home sweet home
God bless America….
My home sweet home!

Congress MUST now bring law suit against the President for his intended usage of the War Powers Act and it should be the Supreme Court who should decided whether in fact this War Powers Act has any real validity give Madison’s reiterations that War must be declared by Congress –
