Elf Sternberg is reported to have observed, “Eagles soar, but weasels
never get sucked into jet engines.”
So why does this line rekindle fears of Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, and
other politicians who seem not only comfortable, but intent on ignoring
their sworn duties in order to implement a new world socialist stew?
I have often noted early warning signs that emanate from California
and or Europe. Some listeners/readers pooh-pooh those concerns and
reply, “California is full of fruits and nuts. … What they do doesn’t
affect me.” Or “Europe is run by a bunch of inbred elitists who needed
our fathers and grandfathers to save their butts in two world wars.”
Wake up folks. Those absurd socialist New Age goo-goo programs
percolating in the Golden State and from the European Union are
important — despite any perceived absurdity.
I recently stumbled across something I wrote here back in October of
1999. The Muses must have been smiling on me because the insight
frankly exceeded my standard.
- I learned a long time ago to notice changes. Changes indicate
“something” and are in many ways a natural early warning device. We may
not know at the time what that “something” is, but awareness leads to
preparedness. If you sit in a forest, a swamp, or a jungle and actively
“listen,” you can easily identify a change. Background noise of birds
and critters will get less, or increase; you can hear the difference.
Something caused that change. Likewise most people can even smell a
change. It might be the smell of a salt marsh at low tide, or a campfire
or diesel engine. I’ve known guys who could smell the oil on a gun
amongst assorted mountain fragrances. There is also what I believe to be
a very real instinctive warning device designed I guess to spark the
“fight or flee” reaction. The Godan (fifth degree black belt) test in
one martial art requires the testee to kneel with his back to the
teacher. The teacher “projects” a killing intention and swings a sword
at the kneeling student’s head. If the target head isn’t there when the
sword arrives, the student passes and is promoted.
When I wrote that, it was a prelude to a column about “Echelon,”
but the importance of listening, comprehending and reacting to change is
a crucial necessity that is sadly and incrementally atrophying.
California recently passed some of the most draconian gun legislation
in the country. One particularly onerous dollop of legislative
excrement is so badly written that even the author is trying to mitigate
it (and the governor signed it into law). The leftist state attorney
general is salivating to implement the new restrictions. His enthusiasm
for gun grabbing even caused him a recent premature articulation that
required a temporary cancellation of his kneejerk order to implement the
confusing, complex and excessive new restrictions. The Ninth Circuit
Court (reportedly the most overturned court in the country) recently
upheld the bad law. Reasonable legal scholars are praying for Supreme
Court intervention, and pessimistic realists are moving to Texas.
Recent reports reveal that Britain is suffering an awkward
reality-induced problem. Apparently the often-touted English strict gun
prohibition has resulted in a
significant increase in
I have been screaming for over a decade that there are two axioms our illegitimate cousins in the mainstream refuse to acknowledge:
- Communities which permit law-abiding citizens to own and carry guns realize a significant decrease in crime. It isn’t rocket science! Bad guys don’t want to deal with armed victims.
- The opposite is also statistically documented. Communities that ban guns, severely restrict their ownership, and confiscate guns, realize dramatic increases in crime. The reason is denigrated as cliché but it is axiomatic: When you outlaw guns only outlaws have them — and they will use them.
Dr. John Lott’s seminal work,
“More Guns Less
Crime” should be trumpeted on every network news program, shouted in every state legislature, and inserted into the Congressional Record. Instead, as Geoff Metcalf says way too often, “Some folks just don’t want to be confused with facts that contradict their preconceived opinions.”
Christopher Ruby is reporting, “Prime Minister Tony Blair is now proposing that the government be allowed to confine people proactively, based on fears of their potential dangerousness.”
Now before you slough off that report as “just Europe” consider the long list of the United States of America’s abuse of power under the color of authority:
- Randy Weaver in Ruby Ridge
- Oklahoma City
- IRS as a punitive tool to bridle critics
- Know Your Customer
- Executive order on federalism
- The Crime Bill
- Government Land Grabs
The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence must be spinning in their graves. This country was founded by people who had fled Europe. Now we have pandering sycophants of malfeasance structuring dissolution of the republic in order to accommodate New World Feudalism.
Let me remind you what that festering SOB (supporter of Bill) Strobe Talbott, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State in the Clinton administration said, “Nationhood as we know it will be obsolete, all states will recognize a single, global authority and National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all. …” This pretentious, petulant puddle of pus may actually believe that, but — regardless of the overreaching of Cecil Rhodes’ boys, and the complicity of Clinton/Blair — it will not happen as an inertial fait accompli. There will be resistance.
I have long held the United Nations in utter contempt. I include thanks for every congressman who voted along with Charles Lindbergh’s dad against the League of Nations as I pray for contemporary patriots to “preserve and protect the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
The cochairman of the U.N. Commission on Global Governance said, “The bedrock of every country’s international relations must be the mission of using the United Nations system as the machinery for working and acting together.”
Tom DeWeese recently wrote, “On October 1, 2000, the Department of Justice, under Janet Reno is scheduled to take control of military forces here in the United States of America.” I warned about this in my April 10 column,
DeWeese noted, “The Assembly will bring together the largest gathering of world leaders ever to meet under one roof. Their goal is to change the way governments operate. The U.N. will be established as the central operating entity. All governments will be redesigned to operate through the U.N. Independent sovereign states will essentially cease to exist. They will instead become ‘partners’ in global governance.” That is their plan, and they are working the plan; however, there will be resistance.
Charlie Daniels is a remarkably insightful American philosopher/poet. I’ve opened my radio talk show with his “In America” for almost a decade. My audience never gets to hear a particularly poignant truism (I hope). The verse says, “We may have done a little bit of fighting amongst ourselves, but you outside people best leave us alone. Cause we’ll all stick together and you can take that to the bank. That’s the cowboys and the hippies and the rebels and the yanks. You just go and lay your hand on a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, and I think you’re gonna finally understand.”
Notwithstanding whatever your NFL allegiances may be, I hope you can see what he’s saying, and I hope and pray that if or when the globalist would-be controllers make their move “we’ll all stick together.”
I often say, “It’s not who is right or wrong but what is right or wrong that counts.” Despite his socialist agenda, it was FDR who said, “We, too, born to freedom, and believing in freedom, are willing to fight to maintain freedom. We, and all others who believe as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.”
