Putin, Obama, Israel, Oscars – Lions and Tigers, Oh My!

President Obama has skipped another national security meeting, according to Weekly Standard.

JoeBiden_TheGaffeMachineHis domestic scene is a shambles with Democrat Socialists pushing to make the public like Obamacare with Joe Biden out like he was an insurance agent canvassing. During his display of stupidity, in front of KTVK-TV cameras, while visiting a Pancake House in Scottsdale, Arizona, he stopped at the interest and sat down with a woman named Jackie visiting from Canada, and stated:

Everybody young signs up for health care. It’s affordable. You can get subsidies to do it, and it’s in your interest. And if you don’t even want to do it yourself, do it for your parents. Give them peace of mind.

Perplexed, the Canadian said:

I just didn’t know if I should just say ‘I’m sorry.

Can Our Constitution Survive?She also added that she was for health care reform and hoped it worked for people in the United States. Unfortunately, Obamacare is not a “fix” by any means, and certainly not “reform”. It is control over one of the most important aspects of the private sector – soon to be nationalized near you.

Obama File: Past Due for Congress to Enact Impeachment Hearings

When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

I mentioned in a previous article that citizens in fifty states have filed petitions to the White House concerning secession and other subjects.

Alexander E. Jones (Prison Planet) on January 15th, 2013 has filed a petition with a list of articles of impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama.

Myth Blaster: Email Petitions: Are They Legitimate?

Sandy Greenwood via Judy Fisher (and who knows who else), passed this on to me concerning email petitions and general chain email …

If you are going to pass something along?, Let it be THIS!
To whom it all concerns: Just a word to the wise. E-mail petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress or any other municipality. To be acceptable, petitions must have a signed signature and full address. Same with “prayer chains” — be wary.
Almost all e-mails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others are similar to that mass letter years ago that asked people to send business cards to the little kid in Florida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of Records for the most cards All it was, and all this type of e-mail is, is to get names and “cookie” tracking info for telemarketers and spammers to validate active e-ma i l accounts for their own purposes.
Any time you see an e-mail that says forward this on to “10” of your friends, sign this petition, or you’ll get good luck, or what ever, it has either an e-mail tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and e-mails of those folks you forward to, or the host sender is getting a copy Each time it gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of “active” e-mails to use in spam e-mails, or sell to others that do.
Please forward this notice to others and you will be providing a good service to your friends, and will be rewarded by not getting 30,000 spam e-mails in the future.
(If you have been sending out the above kinds of email, now you know why you get so much spam!)


Myth Blaster Verdict: TRUE. The subject material is true and has been printed here at LP Journal previously in several discussions. However, at the bottom of the email was a link which goes nowhere. After investigation, it turns out that Snopes did publish something, one of which is a reference page called Inboxer Rebellion
reference pages”. Why Snopes set it up this way I haven’t a clue. It reads:

The age-old process of collecting signatures on paper petitions is being replaced by the cyber-petition, a device that allows notices addressing social injustices to be read and signed by netizens all over the world in a matter of days. Unfortunately, these petitions often contain misinformation or remain in circulation long after they are outdated, and the mere collection of e-signatures is of dubious value.

Consulting and researching, I have found that email petitions are not recognized by Congress; therefore a waste of time. The only petitions that are favorable are those that include the signature and the address of the person signing the petition – a form of verification.
In the Snopes official main site, it reads …

The 2000s have seen the birth of an Internet phenomenon: the e-petition. It offers instant comfort to those outraged by the latest ills of the world through its implicit assurance that affixing their names to a statement decrying a situation and demanding change will make a difference … Those truly committed to righting the wrongs of the world are encouraged to take pen in hand and craft actual letters to their congressmen or to whomever they deem are the appropriate people to contact about particular issues. …

Petition Robert M. Gates, Secretary of State To Save Three Heroes From Disgrace

Human Events is running a petition to save the three Navy SEALs that are up for court-martial charges for giving a terrorist captive a punch to the stomach, originally reported as a bloody lip, during the process of capturing him.
Read the transcribed letter petition below and if you agree, please go to their site and sign the petition. Thanks in advance on behalf of the three heroes …

Hon. Robert M. Gates

Secretary of Defense

The Pentagon

Washington, DC

Dear Secretary Gates:

We, the editors and staff of HUMAN EVENTS, and the many Americans who have attached their signatures to this petition, hereby request your personal intervention to dismiss the charges against Navy SEAL operators SO2 Jonathan Keefe, SO1 Julio Huertas and SO2 Matthew McCabe.

These three men are charged with abusing a terrorist they captured in a daring nighttime raid on or about 1 September 2009. On that night, they — as part of a platoon from SEAL Team 10 — captured and detained Ahmed Hashim Abed, one of the most barbaric and dangerous terrorists in Iraq. The terrorist — in a move that is literally right out of the al-Queda training manual — complained of abuse, apparently alleging he was struck in the stomach.

We had hoped that the SEALs’ commanders would dispose of this matter at the lowest level — with a scolding and perhaps a few hundred pushups — for anyone actually guilty of inflicting an inconvenience on this bloody-handed barbarian. But on 29 September 2009, Gen. David H. Petraeus signed a letter authorizing MGen. Charles T. Cleveland to dispose of the allegations of misconduct. In that letter, Gen. Petraeus said that MGen. Cleveland could, “…dispose of these matters in any manner you deem appropriate. This includes the authority to convene courts-martial at any level up to and including General Courts-Martial and to refer charges concerning these individuals to any court-martial.”

The three now face special courts-martial next month. We believe their commanders — including General Petraeus — have failed you, the SEALs and the American people by not preventing the matter from going this far.

You are the person next in line above General Petraeus in the chain of command. You can, legally under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, intervene to dismiss the charges against the three SEALs and direct that they be restored to duty.

We respectfully request that you do so forthwith. For this matter to continue — and to place the honor and fighting future of these three men at stake — is manifestly a gross injustice.

 Respectfully submitted, 

 These heroes belong home for Christmas with their families and a medal, not a court-martial.
Please help. When I signed the petition there were 89,324 signatures. They need to get home for Christmas – leaves are canceled when court-martial proceedings are enacted, unless otherwise prescribed by the commander. This is political correctness at its worst and liberalism infiltrating our military.
especially to the men and women serving our nation.

America Unite: Save the SEALs – Get Them Home for Christmas!

Today is December 7th, 2009 and 68 years ago, on December 7th, 1941, a devastating and treacherous attack upon American armed forces at the naval center and airfields of Pearl Harbor occurred.
It is also a day of shame for America, where three Navy SEALs who captured a most-wanted terrorist who murdered, mutilated and burned the bodies of a contracted security team now face court-martial hearing with January to be actual court-martial proceedings – because the captured terrorist received a bloody lip and complained.
Instead of medals and time with their families for the Christmas holidays, they must defend themselves for giving a POW a bloody lip. I have not been able to attain the details as far as HOW the terrorist got a bloody lip, and why, whether it occurred while trying to subdue the prisoner, I cannot state.
Mainstream media is quite silent about this, as I pointed out in a previous article.
However, Americans should be complaining in letters to members of Congress and directly to the commander-in-chief, President Obama concerning this matter. Political correctness and the sociocrat mentality towards our uniformed members of the US armed forces has caused much grief and negativity in regards to morale, discipline and cohesiveness. If PC doesn’t belong in American society and its government, it certainly should be taboo in our military.

Military regulations and codes of honor are written for a reason and proper treatment of POWs should always be honored – whether the enemy honors any sense of humanity or not.
You can reasonably blame President Obama for this one … his administration has made a grave error by providing terrorist captives who should be regarded as prisoners of war or suspects of crimes against humanity under the jurisdiction of international and military laws – not constitutional or federal laws afforded citizens of the United States – complete with taxpayer funded defense attorneys. By using the liberal system of what has become of the judiciary system of the United States, we now have created more problems. Every prisoner of this undeclared war will be using that system to make America look bad and those that serve America faithfully, loyally and with honor.
It is a travesty upon several travesties against our nation and the men and women who serve it.
If I were the youth of today I would boycott and abstain from joining the armed forces under the rule of the present administration and any administration and government who takes the side of the enemy to the point of treason – throwing common sense completely out the window.
I beg readers to get on the wagon and be heard on this issue – and get those brave men home for Christmas and exonerated from such foolishness and be presented with medals not a court-martial.
Don’t let our government do to these brave men like it did to Ramos and Compean.

Alert – Censure Jimmy Carter

CNSNews – A conservative group called Move America Forward is in the process of censuring former President Jimmy Carter. They have a website called Censure Carter, which includes photos of Carter with various dictators and terrorists. CNS reports: 

The campaign is a response to Sen. Russ Feingold’s resolution calling for the censure of President Bush. Feingold, a Wisconsin Democrat, has accused President Bush of undermining the Constitution and breaking the law with his terrorist surveillance program.

It is an effort to give himself PR for his intentions to run as a presidential candidate, nothing more. Fellow Democrats have advised him to back away from it, while others support Senator Feingold. I said it before and will say it again, Senator Feingold has become an embarrassment to the state of Wisconsin. Former President Carter has been an embarrassment to the entire nation. Chairman Melanie Morgan of Move America Forward was quoted as saying: 

If the Members of Congress have an itchy finger to issue a resolution of censure, they should start with former President Jimmy Carter, who has repeatedly worked to undermine U.S. foreign policy, while happily promoting the interests of known terrorists and terrorist organizations.

J. Carter has verbally attacked American foreign policy in North Korea while praising that nation’s brutal dictator. He also verbally attacked American foreign policy in Cuba while supporting Fidel Castro. And now J. Carter is condemning American and Israeli policies against terrorism while urging support for the terrorist organization, Hamas.
If you are interested in supporting this issue and signing the petition, visit Censure Carter. As of last Wednesday there has been 6,000 signatures thus far.
