On this date in 1959 the strongest typhoon to ever hit Japan comes ashore killing more than 4500 and leaving over 1.6 million homeless.

On this date in 2002 a ferry capsizes off Gambia killing more than 1000.

On this date in 1980 a suspected neo-Nazi bomb attack on Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich kills 13 and injures over 200.

In a Galaxy Far Far Away–There once was an independent Executive Branch Agency named FEMA created under President James Earl Carter’s Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1978 [actually Reorg plans have force and effect when effective of statute and repeat FEMA was NOT created by Executive Order although it was largely implemented by Executive Order].

So how about a list of independent FEMA’s Presidential delegations:

A call from a CRS staffer this week prompted me to again post my opinion that Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1978 was totally replaced by operation of law by the Homeland Security Act of 2002. Either it was or it wasn’t. The two are incompatible statutes and given the admonition of Professor Sutherland’s ON STATUTORY CONSTRUCTION that statutes must always be construed so as to not conflict what is the conflict?

Well for one thing the Reorg Plan flatly prohibited FEMA from planning for catastrophes. Since the federal civil defense program was housed in FEMA from FEMA’s inception until Public Law 920 of the 81st Congress repealed in 1994 by Public Law 103-337 and that program dealt with primarily strategic nuclear attack [a catastrophe IMO] how was this reconciled?

IT WAS NEVER RECONCILED!

One might ask now does FEMA in DHS and DHS plan for MOMs? MOM equals MAXIMUM OF MAXIMUMS!

I would argue it is supposed to do so but does not!

Perhaps Tim Baden, once of GAO. once of FEMA, once of the NSC, and now again if my information is correct in FEMA’s policy shop should be interviewed. After all both DHS and FEMA are under statutory risk analysis mandates! And Tim has struggled with these issues since leaving GAO.

BTW have you ever reviewed the QHSR’s discourse on RISK ANALYSIS?

I think we can now safely state that the LEGAL PROFESSION has largely failed in providing leadership to DHS.

After all few lawyers are good managers, even if their firms have so-called MANAGING PARTNERS often not practicing lawyers.

Much has happened

It seems that we continue to live in interesting times. Each August I prepare for the Fall semester. I make a point of incorporating current and regional topics (Northeast) in my courses. The Introduction to HLS courses (undergraduate and graduate) focus on two watershed HLS events, 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina.

Superstorm Sandy and the Boston Terror Attacks demonstrate lessons learned and not learned from those events. Lone wolf terrorist plots, cyber attacks, H1N1 scares, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and West Texas fertilizer explosion, and Japan’s tsunami-earthquake-nuclear disaster, and other focusing events vie for attention.

This semester I have incorporated the ISIL threats and the USG’s and international response, the Ebola threat and response, and high-profile police-citizen encounters (Ferguson, Missouri and Staten Island, NY).

Recently, two college administrators that were not from my college asked me: What is HLS? I responded that I and many others had different ideas about what HLS is/was. However, HLS was about all of the above.

Both Administrators also asked me when I thought the war on terrorism might end. I replied that were only mowing the grass. See: http://besacenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Mowing-the-Grass-English.pdf)

Bill,

The “departmentalization” of HLS and others (State, Defense, etc.) is about organizing the government.

Pre-9/11 events and commissions suggested that the US should reorganize many of organizations that do what we now refer to as HLS. 9/11 was the impetus to make those suggestions and recommendations a reality.

Initially, emergency management and FEMA were subordinated to a terrorism-centric DHS and homeland security enterprise. The events of Hurricane Katrina helped evolve the all-hazards approach to HLS.

It would be politically difficult to undo DHS and especially the recreation of FEMA as a separate entity. I sense that we will see FEMA grow in importance.

John! Thanks and just a guess but if the 114th Congress reorganizes [see yesterday WAPO] DHS and FEMA goners.

Really? Nolen recently had been trying to convert co-workers to Islam, however…. Earlier Friday, U.S. law enforcement officials said there were no indications of a link to terrorism.

Breaking News:

(CNN) — A man suspected of beheading a woman and stabbing another at an Oklahoma workplace had recently been fired, police said Friday.

Alton Alexander Nolen, 30, was terminated from his job at Vaughan Foods just before the rampage Thursday afternoon in Moore, Oklahoma, said Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department.

Nolen recently had been trying to convert co-workers to Islam, Lewis said, citing investigators’ interviews with witnesses. Moore police have asked the FBI to help investigate the man’s background, Lewis said.

Earlier Friday, U.S. law enforcement officials said there were no indications of a link to terrorism.

The incident happened at the Vaughan Foods processing plant in Moore, about 10 miles south of Oklahoma City.

The company’s chief operating officer, Mark Vaughan, shot Nolen, Lewis said; Vaughan is a reserve sheriff’s deputy. Nolen and the surviving victim were hospitalized. Both are listed in stable condition.

Really? 179 days and counting…A brave US Marine with diagnosed PTSD and this so corrupt and perverse eight year WH executive who will turn his clubs in now as the weather is getting cooler and commence the usual political campaign towards the November elections….

understanding that the House and Senate will be led by the Republican party and this eight year resident of the WH focusing on conveying every untruth of just how poorly women are treated in America led by the illustrious Michelle who stood before the UN and criticized America this past week reminiscent of her hubby, Barry who ran to Cairo and apologized for America….really?

Let me say, more women hold college degrees than men and while maybe only 15% of the top entities can boast of women at the helm, women are doing just fine working part-time, full-time and so many Mothers who do the job no man can do….so to the State Department and the WH and the political parties, a strong reminder, We never leave anyone behind and this obviously inhumane politician down in Mexico who opens his borders both south and north to illegals and this approved by good ‘ol Barry, well, now 179 days and in solid confinement and even on a basic humanitarian release:

Free Sgt. Tahmooressi

What trust do we really have in a government and State Department who does not even have direct contact at senior level to this decorated soldier’s Mother and he sits in the dark while having PTSD and YOU allow this WH along w/Kerry to let this brave warrior sit in prison for a u-turn when in fact, DHS released convicted felons on our streets and this Muslim, Barry Obama who has again and again portrayed his leanings to Islam, doesn’t give a hoot about our Marine or those at the “Benghazi Massacre” or in our VA hospitals…

Release Sgt. Tahmooressi NOW!

…and by the way, close our borders and tell the Mexicans that despite the trade exchange, dollars will be stopped unless this fella is released within this next week! Enough is enough!

Hold your weapons high – for all lawful purpose – for it is apparent that this tainted WH could give a damn for America and its values and in assuring that we are a strong arsenal and steadfast in our ways….

The Cape Cod Committee To Free Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi now!

Homeland Security and We here on “Main Street USA” whose responsibility on our watch to look out for our security especially when see such breach in faith, treason from the top down in this WH executive administration riddled with real scandal and hypocrisy….

It is so disconcerting, however to no surprise whatsoever to see Michelle Obama as an obvious extension of her husband, the eight year WH resident “Chicago city street slicker and nothing more” Barry Obama and this continued effort in this “politicizing” and continuous effort to undermine our Constitution and Judeo-Christian values as evidenced numerous times during this administration…the Democratic party just fine and going along with the shunning of America at the United Nations witnessing Michelle Obama in her own perverse and biased way standing at the podium as a jv herself doing her utmost to bring attention to the supposed plight of the – American Woman in society – rather than speaking to her UN audience who by the way are in the majority as men, so corrupt in their ways, so demeaning themselves towards women in the Middle East, in Africa….

….Unrealistic to even fantasize that Michelle Obama, a Black woman catapulted by a majority of White American voters as First Lady of the greatest nation ever to be….

….Michelle Obama to stand unlike her husband Barry Obama, a loyalist to prejudice and his Father, Hussein Obama’s Kenyan pals so hell bent on limited knowledge of real American history and the plight of those innovative and entrepreneurial pioneers who created our beloved Republic to become the beacon of hope to so many despite its failures as well, Barry Obama who could not wait to take office and stand in Cairo making “apologies” to the ever corrupt Arab world who prefers to “keep the Middle East oven hot to make sure the bread cooks” even at the cost of its for the big, bad American wolf! How dare you?

The American woman is doing just fine and let me assure you that an overwhelming number, some 58% today are college educated and certainly would Not permit some guy, whether Father Husband, significant other or Barry Obama, Michelle Obama or Ms. Hillary to be abused and my suggestion to these self-serving politicians, read the following book about just how women are treated in the Muslim world:

In the Land of Invisible Women: A Female Doctor’s Journey in the Saudi Kingdom

Preface – She does expose to the reader the soft, decadent underbelly of the wealthy men of Saudi Arabia. Many are playboys, using drugs and alcohol and indulging in other vices, including fast cars and trips all over the world. The women, too, travel often, for cosmetic surgery and elite name brand clothing. Quanta is horrified to discover that hymen reconstruction is one of the most popular overseas surgeries, which women seek out rather than exposing themselves to censure, even death, if they are found not to be “pure.”

An interesting true-life story told from a Western-educated Muslim doctor’s point of view, In the Land of Invisible Women gives us a true bird’s eye view of modern Saudi Arabia. Although Dr. Ahmed’s perceptions are somewhat skewed by the fact that her Saudi life revolves around the hospital and the upper-class strata of society, that narrow angle view only distracts from the richness of the tale in a minor way.

The choice to accept a position in a Saudi Arabian hospital was partly fueled by the loss of her American visa. Deciding that she wanted to explore more of her Muslim faith and experience firsthand some of the lifestyle of day-to-day Saudi life, she quickly becomes disillusioned with the misogynistic perspective of almost every man she meets there, as well as the overwhelming control the Islamic radicals maintain over the country. Her story, as told in this book, takes place predominantly before 9/11, so the perspective of Saudi Arabia and its Islamic neighbors is not so much politically skewed; rather, it addresses the strong Muslim ties that Dr. Ahmed feels for her temporary country.

Thirty-one at the time she arrives in Saudi, she is quickly taken shopping for an abbayah, the requisite outerwear that is such a dominant part of female attire. Black, enrobing the wearer from head to toe, Quanta is astonished at the degree of privacy and freedom she feels when she first wears it. Providing protection from prying eyes and allowing a wide degree of personalized dress underneath, the abbayah is just the first step in Dr. Ahmed’s indoctrination into Saudi society. She soon learns that the external elements to which she is exposed are only the tips of the Muslim iceberg. Everything is so different from her youth, schooled in Britain, and North America, and she is hard-pressed to establish herself in Arabia as a woman with opinions and beliefs – both personally and medically. No man will look her in the eye, and often she is not even acknowledged as a viable member of the ER team on which she serves.

So much different for the woman doctor to assimilate and understand: the lack of communication between men and women; the fact that no Saudi woman is allowed to drive, or even to be out in public without a male member of family (or other women); and the constant pressure to keep her more feminist opinions to herself. She makes friends with other women, almost all other medical professionals, and from the highest echelons of the upper classes there in Riyadh, where she makes her home. The reader does get the feeling that Quanta gets very little hands-on with the “common man” (or woman), for she spends a disproportionate amount of time within the pages talking about the attractiveness or wealth of those with whom she associates. It is as if the very fact that women are only free to be women within the confines of their homes encouraged Dr. Ahmed to focus on the exterior facets of that life. Most of the women seem to dye their hair, wear extraordinary amounts of jewelry and the most expensive footwear, all under the disguising cover of the abbayah.

Despite Dr. Ahmed’s preoccupation with looks and superficialities – or perhaps because of it – she does expose to the reader the soft, decadent underbelly of the wealthy men of Saudi Arabia. Many are playboys, using drugs and alcohol and indulging in other vices, including fast cars and trips all over the world. The women, too, travel often, for cosmetic surgery and elite name brand clothing. Quanta is horrified to discover that hymen reconstruction is one of the most popular overseas surgeries, which women seek out rather than exposing themselves to censure, even death, if they are found not to be “pure.” Virginity is highly prized, and the pressure, as with most of the societal standards, is entirely on the women.

Now, let’s get on with closing our borders with National Guard presence as well as the 3,000 US military personnel dispatched to Africa when in fact, such deployment should have been from the ever so corrupt UN and their force, Not US Army personnel and let’s tale back from the Mexican prison, our brave warrior as he watched illegals waving to him across open borders embraced by this administration overwhelming our classrooms and debt-ridden society in every way….

Begin to shed your tears now, for Your failure to demand that those, no matter what side of the aisle, protect this nation and stop sending a message to the poor and distraught of other nations particularly to our south that you can come on up and we’ll feed you, give you clothes and make you an American citizen and support you as the criminal we have created in allowing you to disregard our every law, well, to the Democrats especially, shed your tears because those eight year WH resident along with Michelle Obama and their perverse and biased ways, Your American dream for you and your kids, it’s all over!

From an unknown source(s) on the internet being passed along which on its face seems so unthinkable, so absurd….however when it comes to past and present WH and Homeland Security failures and absurdities in seeing convicted felons released among us and terrorist captives released as operatives to America’s enemy for exchange of a supposed prisoner being held who most believe fled his unit as a deserter….Ms. Hillary and Barry Obama mocking us and in direct breach of faith, treason in their mannerisms and self-serving actions as they stand shoulder to shoulder in blatant lie at the “Benghazi Massacre” leaving our men to be slaughtered when we leave no one behind including the brave Marine Sgt being held in Mexicann prison and we shout, release him now!

….and then we see a US southern border allowed to be open and immigration laws so intentionally unenforced and we see such intentional decisions in decisions from senior administration in parallel with the indifference to our values and Constitution, the dismissal of the Rights of Individual and appropriate judicial adherence and some at Homeland Security and an executive WH having such disdain for everything which is truly “America” a government so many wisely mistrust so…

….the following which I read on the internet for your thoughts as well and which I share with you as this present administration continues to make apology to the Muslim world in every way and permit the extremists every opportunity to their advantage at a time when we have been so weakened and a Congress and our military seemingly paralyzed to thwart those who from within in their attempt to afflict our core w/such outright disregard for a nation of charitable people and a people understanding that a Democracy must have strong arsenal to stop those who seek our demise:

—————–

“In the face of an Ebola outbreak, the government should be deploying the military at all border entry points and in airports for the purpose of establishing quarantine zones for passengers suspected of exposure to the Ebola virus.

All flights, to and from Africa, should be banned from entering U.S. airspace. Instead of protecting America, this administration is sending 3,000 soldiers, untrained in dealing with Ebola outbreaks, to Africa for reasons that nobody can seemingly identify? Why? We continue to leave our southern border completely open and Ebola, in the form of a bio-terror weapon can and will be brought into the United States. Again, I ask why? The CDC owns the patent on Ebola and every strain of the virus up to 70% of the variance from the original pathogen.
Why is this not being reported in the mainstream media? Crucell tested an Ebola vaccine in 2006 on 32 humans. There is not one word of this mentioned by the six corporate conglomerates which own 95% of the media. Why?

The National Institute of Health (NIH) owns the patent on the Crucell developed vaccine. Also, the Army is involved in the creation of the vaccine. Why won’t the mainstream media report what is so easily discoverable in the public domain? And you can bet, regardless of the efficacy, that vaccines will be mandatory in order to maximize profits in the midst of America’s decline.

Not much about the handing of the Ebola virus makes any sense. However, once the spread of the virus begins, inside of the United States, a very predictable pattern will ensue. It will basically be the same pattern that sociologists have reported on in virtually every disaster scenario whether it be a pandemic or an EMP attack. The following paragraphs discuss some of the issues and patterns that will emerge when Ebola comes to America.

The Beginning

What will happen when Ebola comes to America in a significant and undeniable manner?

With regard to this administration, when, not if, Ebola comes to the U.S., you can count on this administration to not let a good crisis go to waste. And in this case, the early days of an Ebola outbreak will be used to detain as many political dissidents as possible under Executive Order 13295. Many dissidents will have upper respiratory illnesses, colds and asthma. None of these conditions has anything to do with Ebola, but that won’t be the point.

The referenced executive order, entitled Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases, amends Executive Order 13295, passed by George W. Bush in April 2003, which allows for the “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases,” will come into play in a significant manner.

The EO has nothing to do with preventing the spread of Ebola and has everything to do with arresting dissidents who have colds, asthma or an upper respiratory infection. The purpose is to remove the command and control of any potential opposition to this administration’s handling of the coming crisis.

Panic Will Ensue by the Third Day

empty grocery store shelves

The panic portion of this phase will begin as individuals stop showing up for work, personal vacations and business trips will be canceled. Sales of survival gear and most all, firearms and ammunition, will skyrocket until the government suspends these activities under a declared martial law. Grocery stores will be empty and canned food and bottled water will become worth its weight in gold.

Very quickly, the “three thousand mile salad” will become a thing of the past because all “Just in Time” (JIT) delivery, the backbone of the consumer economy, will be gone due to imposed travel restrictions and a growing fear of Ebola in which many truck drivers will refuse to make deliveries to impacted areas.
Quarantining the Healthy with the Sick
quarantine zones

In areas where the virus is present, isolation of the victims will not be feasible. Instead we will see what are witnessing in Liberia, quarantines will confine the healthy with the sick.

The healthy, fearing contamination, will try and fight their way out of containment zones in order to avoid being trapped an exposed, in close quarters, to the Ebola virus.

America has 150 million gun owners armed with 300 million handguns. The United States will be the site of widespread violence as the newly declared martial law troops, under the auspices of the United Nations, will attempt to enforce containment zones. There will be no question that many Americans will attempt to fight their way out of the containment zone in order to escape certain exposure to virus.

By this point in time, the infection will have become widespread with the CDC basically admitting that regional quarantines of cities and major metropolitan areas will become the primary method of containment. Everyone inside of the containment zones will potentially be a “dead man walking”. Drones will likely patrol the skies on the fringes of the containment areas and will destroy people attempting to escape.

Economic Collapse

economic collapse

Commerce will come to a crashing halt and our financial institutions will go into free fall. People, in critical services will begin, by the third day, to fail to report to work. Vigilantism will become the rule of law. As was the case in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the police, fire and medical personnel abandoned their posts and their duties on the third day. Armed groups of citizens will roam the quarantined areas in search of essential resources needed for survival.

There will be nobody to call for help. Untreated Ebola victims will die agonizing deaths. Eventually, a quarantined area will lack the resources to even bury the dead. This will exacerbate the spread of the Ebola and the emergence of secondary diseases (e.g. Cholera) which will kill more than the Ebola virus.

The violence and the victimization will be horrific. Society, within the quarantine zones will collapse, warlords will appear and open warfare will take place. The powers that be will not intervene so long as the fighting does not threaten to break the containment zones. There will, however, be organized attempts to break through containment to get to safety. Military technology will be brought to bear to enforce containment of areas afflicted with Ebola.

Chronically ill people, about 15-20% of the nation, will not be able to obtain critical medical services and medication. The healthcare industry will collapse.

The economy of the country will begin to fall into complete collapse as absentee rates of 60% plus due to illness and voluntary absenteeism which will shut down not only the transportation system but increase the strain on every system needed to maintain a society.

Military hospitals and isolation or quarantine camps will be established by FEMA to ensure that the infected or those suspected of infection are prevented from traveling throughout the region or other parts of the country to spread the disease.

Initially, some communities will witness 50% infection rates with 80-90% of all confirmed cases dying. And now that we know that Ebola is transmissible through the air, there is no telling how quickly Ebola will spread. Entire neighborhoods, with nowhere to escape from, will be wiped out by the Ebola. Who will maintain the water and sewage services and who will pick up the trash?

The spread of disease will be catastrophic.

As the nation’s economy collapses, the government will seek to maintain a smaller, secondary economy. Therefore, it will be likely that the government will move people to safe areas and normal services will be initiated. Uninfected people , with critical skills, will be the first to be “invited” and a mini-society will emerge under the “Continuity of Government” regulations. Workers, with essential skills will be conscripted to perform services needed by the emerging society.

Without JIT and the global economy in play, local manufacturing will emerge. It is likely that the government is preparing for this now as they are surveying all school employees for essential skills related to reconstructing a society. FEMA has published a training manual which serves as the rough draft model for school safety to be enacted by all 50 versions of the State Department of Education, in times of an emergency.

Of particular importance and relevance is a document from the Arizona Department of Education entitled “Staff Skills Survey and Inventory“, which is located on page 76 of their school safety manual. In the appendix, I list a copy of the skills survey being given to every public school employee in the Appendix. It is clear that the government is preparing to “enlist” those with skills deemed critical.

Meanwhile, on the international front, the nations of the world will shut down their borders to foreigners in a futile effort to stop the spread of Ebola. Without a global economy, the stock market will collapse, as will the banks. There will be little commerce beyond simple bartering and trading.

The discovery of Ebola within the swine population will cause the mass kill off of the live food supply. Commerce, public safety and human decency as we have known it, will become a thing of the past.

The Enslavement of the Healthy Population

Under Executive Order 13603, American people, in the healthy zones, will be conscripted for both military duties and civilian work brigades. Currency will be worthless by this time, and these “consultants” will not be paid under this EO. In other words, slavery will have re-emerged inside of the United States.

Section 601 of the act specifies, in part, how far the government can go in terms of making you their slave.

Sec. 601. Secretary of Labor. (a) The Secretary of Labor, in coordination
with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of other agencies, as deemed
appropriate by the Secretary of Labor, shall:

(1) collect and maintain data necessary to make a continuing appraisal
of the Nation’s workforce needs for purposes of national defense;
(2) upon request by the Director of Selective Service, and in coordination
with the Secretary of Defense, assist the Director of Selective Service
in development of policies regulating the induction and deferment of
persons for duty in the armed services;
(3) upon request from the head of an agency with authority under this
order, consult with that agency with respect to: (i) the effect of contemplated
actions on labor demand and utilization; (ii) the relation of
labor demand to materials and facilities requirements; and (iii) such other
matters as will assist in making the exercise of priority and allocations
functions consistent with effective utilization and distribution of labor;
(4) upon request from the head of an agency with authority under this
order: (i) formulate plans, programs, and policies for meeting the labor
requirements of actions to be taken for national defense purposes; and
(ii) estimate training needs to help address national defense requirements
and promote necessary and appropriate training programs

If the above section was merely going to be a military draft, then the Secretary of Labor would not have to be involved. However, as you will note the “Secretary of Labor, in coordination with the Secretary of Defense and heads of other agencies, as deemed appropriate by the Secretary of Labor, shall: …assist in the development of policies regulating the induction and deferment of persons for duty in the armed services;… formulate plans, programs, and policies for meeting the labor requirements of actions to be taken for national defense purposes; and (ii) estimate training needs to help address national defense requirements and promote necessary and appropriate training programs…”.

Refer back to section 502 of sections 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c); these are the people that the Secretary of the Labor will conscript in order “to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation and to employ experts, consultants, or organizations”.

This, my fellow Americans, is a civilian conscription and this is why the Secretary of Labor is in charge instead of the head of the Selective Service! Under these provisions, the government believes that they can send you anywhere, to work on anything of their choosing. This is slavery!

Will the Obama administration, or some future administration, send you to a detention camp to work? It is obvious that families will be separated. If the parents are split up to different locations, what happens to the children? Will CPS raise your children in your absence? With legislation this broad, anything is possible.

Mandatory Vaccines

A preventative vaccine in addition to the successful cure are now in widespread production and shared with the world. The preventative vaccine becomes mandatory for all citizens of the United States but some resist suspecting ulterior motives. Those families are quarantined in their homes and subjected to prosecution by the military courts under the National Emergency declaration.

Conclusion

What will a post-apocalyptic America look like? The answer to that question will center around what the Agenda 21 advocates have been calling for.

What America will look like after the collapse will be the subject of a future article.

re Palin mocks Obama’s coffee cup salute, flubs White House address!

In the independent defense contractor business sector which I have been engaged in for decades now, I have seen folks fired for less and again and certainly to no surprise, this eight year resident of the WH so hell bent on apologizing to the Muslim world, well, a time to now apologize to the US military who serve this nation w/distinction and clearly see a WH and a Secretary of Defense who are aloof in every way….

….and You really expect us on “Main Street USA” to have any confidence in Homeland Security who would prefer being called as he said in the news reporters gathering dinner, Hussein Obama….that someone is truly watching out for US(A)? Really?

Thank God for the 300 million responsibly owned guns We hold high and for all lawful purpose….With this eight year WH resident and a self-serving Congress on both sides of the aisle, we are being walked right into the gates of hell!

…and shortly here enters Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg and the witness of real ferocity to be displayed by a real leader and the Bundestag decision-makers whose strategy has been evolving throughout the Middle East while the US was busy voting for the pigment of a man’s skin, despite Barry Obama’s perverse, biased and self-serving politicizing and pledge in oath to his father, Hussein Obama and his anti-Christian, anti-colonialists Kenyan pals….

Palin mocks Obama’s coffee cup salute, flubs White House address
By Eric Weisbrod, CNN

Washington (CNN) — Sarah Palin took yet another jab at President Obama on Friday, this time mocking his “coffee cup salute” moment.
“To the commander in chief, we then salute him,” she remarked as she reached down below her podium for a Styrofoam coffee cup, sarcastically waving it around in a half-hearted salute.

Debased by slavery, or corrupt by power –

Degraded mass of animated dust!
Thy love is lust, thy friendship all a cheat,
Thy tongue hypocrisy, thy heart deceit!
By nature vile, ennobled but by name,
Each kindred brute might bid thee blush for shame.

Homeland Security – this perverse WH administration cannot even keep the WH protected and could give a damn anyways….Enough is enough! Voting in November? You betcha! We on “Main Street USA” will take our beloved Republic from the hands of these deceitful and self-serving hooligans….thugs!

Really? Breach of faith, treason! The continued theme of this WH administration who doesn’t give a hoot about our country or our Judeo-Christian values, our Constitution or our profound and wonderful history and the most charitable people in the world! Throw this Chicago city street slicker and Michelle Obama who now I understand had to give up her law license or have a Judge pursue her in fraud related to insurance….what a “Chicago-Hollywood-Washington charade” and now that America has felt good for voting the pigment of skin rather than competencies, it is time to get our borders closed, bring back our brave US Marine locked up in solitary confinement for more than 180 days for making a u-turn and showing some prowess globally instead of this left wing Muslim leaning towards obviously those who disregard Life so easily and as barbarians cut people’s heads off in the 21st century, what BS – let’s move forward, strengthen our own commitments and nation and start holding DHS and Secret Service and so many others including Ms. Hillary the Justice Department’s illustrious and divisive accountable for such travesties….
