Should US trade 5 Gitmo “Senior” Taliban militants?

Talks of trading 5 (FIVE) Taliban terrorists in Guantanamo for one of our soldiers made me recall another such trade….. it involved a family member who was traded. Reading the news, I’m thinking that back in the day, the US had better negotiators than Obama has today.  In the news, “Taliban militants in Afghanistan have offered a trade to the United States: Give us five senior operatives imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay and we’ll free one American soldier held captive since 2009.”

My Uncle, James Norborn Key and one of his fellow US soldiers, was traded back to the US in exchange for a single German spy. He did not ever agree with the decision and said the German spy should have never been released; Uncle James said he and his fellow prisoner were merely POW ‘grunt soldiers’ & the German spy should have rotted in jail.

James Norborn Key was a Ranger, a ‘first’ Ranger, known as Darby’s Rangers “Darby’s Ranger Force was originally formed shortly after the United States’ entry into World War II and was modeled upon the British Commandos. Members from the unit were the first American soldiers to see combat in the European theatre when they participated in the failed raid on Dieppe in France in 1942, during which three Rangers were killed and several more were captured. Later, the 1st Ranger Battalion was sent to North Africa where they participated in the landings in Algeria and the fighting in Tunisia in 1943. In late 1943 the unit was broken up in order to raise two more Ranger battalions before it took part in the campaigns in Sicily and Italy.”

“The Ranger Force targeted Salerno on 9 September 1943, and participated in the Naples-Foggia Campaign. Then they moved on to Anzio on 22 January 1944. The entire 6615th Ranger Force (Provisional) was destroyed behind enemy lines in a heavily outnumbered encounter at Cisterna, Italy on 31 January 1944, and was officially disbanded on 15 August 1944. The 4th Ranger Battalion suffered some casualties while attempting to break through enemy lines to rescue their comrades in the 1st and 3rd Battalions. The 1st, 3rd, and 4th Battalions were known as Darby’s Rangers.”

Uncle James was captured in the battle of Anzio, part of his skull was blown away and it was German technology which saved him when he was taken prisoner and a Platinum plate replaced the missing part of his skull. He was my Mother’s brother and died only a couple years ago. He told us many stories about his adventures, which included full contact rugby games against his guards after his wound healed. He was a tough old Patriot!

American Fable ~ author unknown

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land Called America,
having lost their morals, their initiative, and their Will to defend their liberties, chose
as their Supreme Leader that person known as “The One.”

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning;
but He hypnotized the people telling them, “I am sent to save you.”
My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego,
and my Association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall
save you with hope and Change.

Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the Land that he who preceded
me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, And that all he has built must be
destroyed. And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what
“The One” would do, he had promised. That it was good; and they believed.

And “The One” said “We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me
change everything about it!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah! Change is good!” Then He said, “We are
going to tax the rich fat-cats.” And the People said “Sock it to them!” “And
redistribute their wealth.” And the people said, “Show us the money!” And
the he said, “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody…”

And Joe the plumber asked, “Are you kidding me? You are going to Steal my
money and give it to the deadbeats??” And “The One” Ridiculed and taunted him,
and Joe’s personal records were hacked and publicized. One lone reporter asked,
“Is that not Marxist policy?” And she was banished from the kingdom.

Then a citizen asked, “With no foreign relations experience and having zero military
experience or knowledge, how will you deal with Radical terrorists?” And “The One”
said, “Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are;
and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!” And the people Said, “Hallelujah!!
We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!”

Then “The One” said “I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.” And one, lone voice said,
“But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.” So “The One said, “Then I shall give you some
of the taxes the fat-cats pay!” And the people said, “Hallelujah! Show us the money!”

Then “The One” said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!”
And the people yawned and the slumping housing market Collapsed.

And He said. “I shall mandate employer-funded health care for every worker and raise the
minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and
transportation to the Clinics.” And the people said, “Give me some of that!” Then he said,
“I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.” And the people said,
“Where is my rebate check?”

Then “The One” said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry and Electricity rates will skyrocket!”
And the people said, “Coal is Dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we do not care for that part
about higher electric rates.” So “The One” said, “Not to worry.” If your rebate is not enough to
cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!”

Then He said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let us Grant them amnesty, Social Security,
free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing…” And the people
said, “Hallelujah!” and they made him king!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and Ever-higher taxes, raised their prices
and laid off workers.

Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff.

The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were
without a means of support.

Then “The One” said, “I am the “the One”- The Messiah – and I am here to save you! We shall just print
more money so everyone will have enough!” But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. “Wait a minute.
Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more…And “The One” said, “Wait a minute.
That is unfair!!”

And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a
Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!”

And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have we done?”

But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name
was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or
shelter or hope. And the Change “The One” had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them
and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, “Give us back our nation and our pride
and our hope!!” But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.

You may think this a fairy tale, but it is not. It’s happening RIGHT NOWImage

What is ‘Gaslighting?’ (Are you a victim?)

(written after 2012 election voter fraud was reported, proven and not indicted, and….. sadly, it is still relevant)

Today, I was struck by the harshness of corruption, the arrogance of absolute power, the out of control government which thumbs it’s nose at those of us who fund it; as I watched with disbelief, the report, that  900 voted in a precinct with only 7 actual voters.  And, I saw two corrupt political boss parties join forces to silence the voices of those who still have the courage and awareness to make them accountable. Some of our fellow citizens, the ones who, like us, who are not a part of the corruption; are no longer able to see, nor discern, the media propaganda and will likely fall for the tricks of the political bosses yet AGAIN.

In my shock, at the distance America has traveled from the Nation of my childhood, I  recalled, as a child, learning about, “The Man Without A Country” (1).  I, along with the Patriotic military brats who attended grade school with me, could imagine nothing worse than being banned from the America which we loved. This world is not the same as the world of my youth and America has not changed for the better. In fact, America now, has more in common with those, less than desirable, foreign socialists and Marxist regimes which our military families were fighting to preserve American Freedoms. And there is no where else to turn…. as Reagan said, “America is our last best hope of mankind on earth.”

If America is to be saved, it is up to us, those who are awake and aware, Patriots. WE have learned much about the movements and actions of the dark-side. The mental conflict we have witnessed, which many people succumb to, has now been given a name, Gaslighting. Gaslighting is similar to burn out, on a level. With ‘Gaslighting’ tactics, people are bombarded with false information so often that they cease to be able to discern truth from false information. Gaslighting victims may have trouble with memory, completing tasks, critical thinking and depression.

Tell me, does it seem to you that a political boss who uses Gaslighting tactics to control you is worthy of your support or attention? If you have trouble with answering that question, you are likely already a victim. Try to think your way out……”and remember Who’s always By Our Side(2) …  http://youtu.be/CdjRmM0Q0qs ”

***************************************
(1) “The Man Without a Country” by American writer Edward Everett Hale, first published in December 1863. American Army lieutenant Philip Nolan, renounces his country during a trial for treason and is sentenced to spend the rest of his days at sea without so much as a word of news about the United States. The story is about the upheaval of the American Civil War and was meant to promote the Union cause. It is also seen to be inspired by an anti-war pro-Confederate Ohio Democrat who – like Nolan – was exiled and expressed a disinterest in belonging to the United States.

“You can’t trust anybody with power.” ~ Newt Gingrich

A quote by Sarah Palin caught my eye, ” We are so screwed.”And she went on to say, “Sorry. That was crass and inaccurate. I should have just said about Obama’s judgment and unchecked power, ‘America, we are so screwed.’”

Newt nailed the problem with America this morning on ABC, “They’re not going to REMEMBER it.” (When asked about Christie’s close ties with democrat’s.)
Sadly, Newt is right, again. And Palin is too.

Is there proof of Newt’s words? Yes.
In spite of:
Obama’s Healthcare & monstrous Tax increase,
Fast & Furious (killing hundreds with his illegal guns to drug cartels & Brian Terry),
Benghazi murders of 4 Americans (lying to UN and us about a “moivie”),
WH security leaks (which killed 28 members of Seal Team Six),
Money laundering with our tax dollars (called ‘bailouts’),
Obama’s corrupt DOJ and voter fraud;
50% (or more) of America did not care enough to remember. Pretty convincing evidence.

Wonder why you keep getting run over by a government who no longer represents the thinking person? Because you will either forget, quit caring or brainwashing media experts will make you irrelevant, or some bureaucracy will intervene to stop your interference with DC’s den of corruption.

How many have forgotten already that IRS violated our rights?
Many of you are already chasing whatever shiny ball the Obama Gang pitches to their media.

Political Immigration is all DC and their media think is important now… why? They could give a rat’s arse about solving America’s actual problems or stopping Obama’s political Healthcare TAX or cleaning up their own corruption (like NSA) …… because over 50% of us are too dumb to know there is a problem. America has given DC a license to steal, and they do.

So, as the propaganda media’s next chosen one, Hillary (possible Butcher of Benghazi), says; “what difference does it, at this point, make.” Face it, the media & establishment has chosen Christie as a 2016 opponent because that fatso loudmouth will make any 70 year old lesbian look better… just in case any of you “remember’ to vote.

“You can’t trust anybody with power.” ~ Newt Gingrich
“We’re in for a helluva’ ride, America” ~ Sarah Palin

Internal or is it ‘Eternal’ Revenue Service

Where were we, before being so rudely interrupted by more DC scandals than can be believed?? Oh yes, remember, IRS is in charge of Obama’s Healthcare? You may think you were scared of the doctor before, just wait! (Note to self: find out what NSA may have had on Judge Roberts)

What was or is the IRS thing all that about? Hmm, about Internal Revenue Services grossly abusing their power and their Constitutional violations of the rights of legitimate Americans…. while IRS was favoring illegal and and illegitimate organizations… And then there is that IRS ‘hussy’ who ‘haughtily’ took the 5th before Congress, even when it did not apply in her case…. because she could not take the 5th regarding her signature on the questionable documents. http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/14/irs-official-lerner-approved-exemption-for-obama-brothers-charity/
Did I miss anything?

Oops, almost forgot, what about all those IRS White House visits?
{Tongue in cheek here} Wonder how many ‘blank spots’ will be on those meeting tapes? (Google: Nixon, Blank Spots and see how that worked out)

“The fact is, today, we have a bureaucracy so big and so self-policing that we have no control as citizens. And it’s going to take a very deep, substantial reform in order to be able to move away from the kind of threats we have to our very freedoms,” Gingrich said. Interview link here: Newt Gingrich: IRS Controversy Is ‘The Largest Bureaucratic Big Government Scandal’ Ever http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/07/newt-gingrich-irs_n_3402456.html

And now, even more IRS meetings are being found on the record…
“Sarah Hall Ingram, the IRS official currently in charge of overseeing the agency’s implementation of Obamacare, has logged 165 recorded visits to the White House 165 times since 2011, according to an analysis of White House visitor records compiled by the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity.

Ingram headed the IRS’ tax-exempt division in 2010 when the scandal-ridden agency began improperly targeting the tax-exempt nonprofit status of conservative groups.

Despite logging 165 visits, Ingram’s meetings never overlapped with those of former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, who, as The Daily Caller reported, has appeared in the White House visitor logs 157 times since September 15, 2009.”

Any questions, do you trust IRS with your healthcare?

DC’s “Scandal Diarrhea,”but Is it a fraud?

“DC is overflowing with scandal diarrhea,”Greg Gutfield, FOX, The Five.
Here’s the question though, ‘WHY?’ (Benghazi, people died, that’s a crime).
Ever hear of ‘hiding in plain sight?’ (It’s a political strategy.)
Ever been played by con artists before? (Are you going to let it happen again?)

Patriots, keep your nose to the grindstone and your ear to the ground and let’s find out why DC wants to take us all off the trail of Benghazi, murdered Seal Team Six members, Fast & Furious and IRS, with a cover story of old information leaked months ago about NSA?
Here is another question, why are Obama’s media and ALL the talking heads so eager to follow whatever shiny ball Obama tosses them?

BTW, one last thing… this whistle-blower, Snowdon, is it odd he looks so much like Jay Carney, a paid Obama liar?  Oh, Snowdon is ‘somebody”s’ kid, bank on it. See this article and, for one thing, follow the favors:

No Such Agency?

NSA (NO Such Agency) was, originally, a “secret agency” created by President Truman in 1952. How old were you (or your parents) when this antiquated, foreign cryptography tracking and decoding organization was born?

Well, skip ahead a few decades and realize, that like all other good, bad or deeply secret ABC bureaucracies; they never go away. When NSA was no longer a secret, a new secret outfit was born and the defunct NSA had to invent a purpose because, DC does not kill dead bureaucracies; they throw money at them.

I’ve heard of NSA for years and you can peruse this attached lists of books and movies which leaked info on NSA over the last 20 years and determine where you first heard of the ‘No Such Agency: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSA_in_popular_culture

Last December, the following video was released and is of extraordinary interest as it is from a Russian news source. ‘NSA Whistle-blower: Everyone in US under virtual surveillance, all info stored, no matter the post…!’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TuET0kpHoyM

Now you might wonder what is involved to collect, as Newt Gingrich pointed out, data on all us innocent Americans, I certainly want to know. As this article points out, NSA ‘Boundless Informant’ software leak shows just how much data the government has. http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/8/4409746/nsas-boundless-informant-software-leaked
“3 billion pieces of information were allegedly tracked in the US over a 30-day period ending in March. In that same period, 97 billion pieces were collected worldwide, with Iran, Pakistan, Jordan, Egypt, and India getting the heaviest surveillance. Some documents say the program includes individual IP addresses, which can help pinpoint location — similar to the geolocation data that was collected from Verizon and likely other carriers.”

What would you do with: 3 BILLION PIECES OF DATA COLLECTED ON AMERICANS IN 30 DAYS, NEARLY 100 BILLION PIECES WORLDWIDE?

Newt Gingrich asked recently on Hannity’s Show, regarding NSA, “You have to ask yourself, ‘What is it they’re missing?’ When they have all this information on innocent people and they can’t figure out who the guilty are?” Newt’s very interesting interview with Sean Hannity is here: http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/hannity/index.html#http://video.foxnews.com/v/2442881687001/should-americans-trust-the-nsa-with-private-information/?playlist_id=86924

And beyond all that, what the heck does Obama’s new NSA do with trillions of pieces of data, personal calls, emails, text messages? So glad you asked, you won’t believe this! You are the proud owner of a $2 Billion mega storage building in Utah. Yes sirree…. it’s one Million square feet of lavish, spare no taxpayer expense.

Let’s just take a look, “Inside America’s $1.9 Billion data mine: How all your private details will soon be stored in this vast NSA nerve center in Utah Valley;
– Government will complete its data storing facility in Utah this October
– Concerns about what personal information will be stored there as it emerged the government has been extracting data from big companies (and private citizens)
