I read today that the Russians are looking to establish a base in Cuba and are in talks with the Cuban Government. Anyone with half a brain should have seen this coming. I reported on this a long time ago. The Russian Bear NEVER went away and is now looking to take advantage of an America they perceive as weak and misguided. They may be right, and for the Obama Administration to not anticipate this maneuver, is wholly incompetent and/or subversive. If the Russians get a foothold in Cuba, does anyone believe that they won’t move in nukes, either ship launched or land? The Lefts blindness in this area is incomprehensible and Americans, as well as any other country in the western hemisphere should be alarmed at this development. America used to have a doctrine that did not allow the introduction of any kind of nukes in the western hemisphere, and it is looking like the Obama Administration has ignored that prudent policy. Just look at what is going on in Venezuela with the Communists moving in there. There is no doubt in my mind that Obama is ill prepared to deal with this level of crisis. In my opinion he will crumble and nothing good will come of it. The thought of nukes aimed at us from 90 miles off the coast is not a comforting thought even though they have subs off our coasts all the time, doing the same thing we do, armed with nuclear tipped messengers of destruction…. Click here to read on how President Kennedy handled the situation in October of 1962. Of course, Obama might just think that this is all okay and he couldn’t care less….. I don’t know, what do you think?

According to this article,a TSA Supervisor has come forward and state that the agency has been directed to hire wackos in order to help push the people into accepting the coming police state….. Well, I really don’t know what to think about this so-called revelation. Could it be that there are actually people in the Federal Government who are brazen enough to admit to this crazy, out of the blue, unreal, “conspiracy” of sorts? The really scary thing is,…. in this administration, I believe it’s possible. If true, this revelation should stand as a shot across the bow of every citizen in this nation. Is this where we as a nation and society want to go? Are all the “alarmist” FEMA campers right? Has our government been conspiring against us, and if so, will the patriots in the military allow this to happen or will they stand up and say NO?! This in my opinion, is the crux of the matter. How patriotic are our military members? If this is true, I’ll guess we’ll find out……..one way or the other..

“The American Thinker” is a very reputable web site that does not delve into “Conspiracy Theory” stuff, so in the process of doing some research on another story, I stumbled on this information. It caused me to sit up and take notice and coupled with what I was researching, it is concerning. Click here for the story I was researching and click here for the American Thinker article. Check it out, download the pdf here and make up your own mind……..
YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS VOTED TO HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO TRACK YOUR KIDS HEALTH AND SOCIAL PROGRESS

In the 2009 Stimulus Bill, there are provisions that allows the Federal Government the authority to maintain a file on your kids progress as they grow up and YOU can’t do a thing about it. If this is not enough to indicate that this government is totally out of control and operating outside the confines and boundaries of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then, well, I am out of words……. Read this story and contact your Representatives and give them a piece of your mind. I heard that Montana is mounting a recall movement to remove the Senators who voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA). Because the Washington State Constitution allows recall also, I think the Citizens of Washington State should do the same, including all the rest who vote in favor of unconstitutional acts like this. We citizens need to send a message loud and clear to these power hungry elitist. We own this country, not them! Click the pic for the story.
This proposal boggles the mind!! The only thing more boggling is the fact that there will be people here in the USA that think this would be a great thing…… You jut can’t make this stuff up…. The UN is such a sham and poor excuse for an organisation that the US should back out of it and kick it out of the USA. Send it to say… the UK. After all, their scientists believe in the global warming crap…..They published it………
If she doesn’t, that will mark a truly dark turn for the Constitution. She was asked point-blank if she was in any way involved in this legislation and she said “no”. I believe that that answer is a bald face lie and not only should indicate that she MUST recuse herself from the debate, but, her answer being a lie, should cause her legitimacy for her position on the SCOTUS to come into question. If she does not, this will be one of the biggest scandals ever to hit the SCOTUS. Click the pic for the story. In light of this information, I don’t see how she can not recuse herself…

I am asking all voting Americans to contact your Senators and demand that they not vote in favor of this legislation, “S.1867 – Military Construction Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012”. As much as I despise the ACLU, they are right on this issue and we must not stand for this latest assault on the American Public. You take the DHS publication on Extremism, and couple it with this legislation and you will see that the forces inside the Federal Government that want to put us all in jail are still at work and is alive and well. This could be the final shot across our bow that seals our fate. If this language is left in this legislation and passes both the House and Senate and is signed into law, (which I have no doubt the current occupier of the WH will do) the great experiment called Democracy, that our Founding Fathers established, will be dead. This is not an exaggeration or doom and gloom stuff. If you don’t think so, you’re simply ignorant or not paying attention. In either case, we’re all in trouble. Click here and here for the details.
There is another issue with this legislation because it also covers the Tri-Care medical program that military retirees use. It states;
SEC. 701. ANNUAL COST-OF-LIVING ADJUSTMENT IN ENROLLMENT FEES IN TRICARE PRIME.
(a) In General- Section 1097a of title 10, United States Code, is amended–
(1) by redesignating subsections (c), (d), (e), and (f) as subsections (d), (e), (f), and (g), respectively; and
(2) by inserting after subsection (b) the following new subsection (c):
`(c) Cost-of-living Adjustment in Enrollment Fee- (1) Whenever after September 30, 2012, the Secretary of Defense increases the retired pay of members and former members of the armed forces pursuant to section 1401a of this title, the Secretary shall increase the amount of the fee payable for enrollment in TRICARE Prime by an amount equal to the percentage of such fee payable on the day before the date of the increase of such fee that is equal to the percentage increase in such retired pay. In determining the amount of the increase in such retired pay for purposes of this subsection, the Secretary shall use the amount computed pursuant to section 1401a(b)(2) of this title. The increase in such fee shall be effective as of January 1 following the date of the increase in such retired pay.
`(2) The Secretary shall publish in the Federal Register the amount of the fee payable for enrollment in TRICARE Prime whenever increased pursuant to this subsection.’.
So what it saying is, if retirees get a COLA increase in their retirement checks,they will use Tri-Care to get it back…… This is the kind of back door, back stabbing legislation we Vets and Americans are sick of. Those in congress who push this type of legislation must be voted out of office as we reform our REPRESENTATIVE form of government.
MY LETTER TO MY REPS ON THIS:
I am writing as your constituent in the 3rd Congressional district of Washington. I oppose S.1867 – Military Construction Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, and am tracking it using OpenCongress.org, the free public resource website for government transparency and accountability. This legislation is a direct assault on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and if you vote in favor of this Bill in its present form, you will be in violation of your oath of office and that will not go unnoticed. As Benjamin Franklin said on Feb 17th, 1775, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” This struggle we find ourselves in now is not to be used as justification to tear our democracy asunder. We citizens are relying on you to protect our inviolate foundational tenets and GOD GIVEN RIGHTS. We demand you do so or you will most definitely find yourself voted out of office come your next election cycle. As this letter is being sent to all three of my Representatives in Congress, this legislation will not go before the House unless the Senate gives it an up vote. If it is passed in the Senate and goes to the House, my Representative in the House will be held to the same standard as my Senators. Our Democracy is in danger, do the right thing and vote no on this democracy killing legislation.
REPLY FROM CANTWELL: (sort of..)
Thank you for contacting me regarding the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.
Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) introduced the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 on May 5, 2011. This legislation was passed by the Senate Armed Services Committee by a vote of 26-0 on November 15, 2011. The National Defense Authorization Act is enacted each fiscal year to specify the budget and expenditures of the U.S. Department of Defense. The National Defense Authorization Act for 2012 includes numerous provisions that relate to the treatment of terrorism detainees. One such provision requires that any detainee caught on U.S. soil must be remanded to the U.S. military for custody. This provision is strongly opposed by the White House and the Department of Defense; both entities have stated that it will limit current options available to our counter-terrorism officials. However, the legislation also allows the Administration to waive the mandatory custody requirement. The bill also provides for an exemption for any mandatory custody transfer that would interfere with ongoing civilian law enforcement surveillance or interrogation efforts. Please be assured that I will keep your thoughts should I have the opportunity to vote on these or similar provisions. I am profoundly grateful for the service of our brave men and women in the armed services and for the sacrifices they have made to defend and preserve our great nation. As such, we have an important responsibility to ensure that they have the tools and resources they need to successfully complete their mission and return home safe. Please be assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues on behalf of the many soldiers in the state of Washington.
Thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts on this matter. You may also be interested in signing up for periodic updates for Washington State residents.

NOTICE HOW SHE DOES NOT TOUCH ON MY CONCERNS? IS SHE RESPONSIVE TO OUR CONCERNS? I SAY NO!
(UPDATED 112811)THE EU IS ALL UPSET ABOUT THE USA AND OTHER INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES DELAYING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE AGENDA
I find this BBC story very enlightening and disturbing at the same time. It is a great indicator of how the rest of the world has been bamboozled by the UN and have bought into the global warming scam lock, stock and barrel. For this reason alone, we must keep pressure on our Representatives to NOT buy into this scam in any way shape or form. As you can read, there seems to be some negotiations or meetings going on that the media is not reporting. Gee, imagine that!!!! Read this article and pass it on.
As I have been reporting since I started this website, the Lib/Progressives are hell-bent on doing everything they can to restrict your gun rights in one way or another. In this case, through regulations, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will severely restrict access to public land for the purpose of any shooting activity, to include hunting. In the proposed regulation, this paragraph is the Coup de grâce to the shooting public; “When the authorized officer determines that a site or area on BLM-managed lands used on a regular basis for recreational shooting is creating public disturbance, or is creating risk to other persons on public lands; is contributing to the defacement, removal or destruction of natural features, native plants, cultural resources, historic structures or government and/or private property; is facilitating or creating a condition of littering, refuse accumulation and abandoned personal property is violating existing use restrictions, closure and restriction orders, or supplementary rules notices, and reasonable attempts to reduce or eliminate the violations by the BLM have been unsuccessful, the authorized officer will close the affected area to recreational shooting.” In reading this, it is very evident that whomever authored it was trying very hard to tie up every situation they could think of that could be used as justification to shut down recreational shooting or even hunting. At this point, I don’t have any information that would indicate what type of violations these would be, if any. But be warned, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Feds didn’t make it at least a class c felony, which in turn would make you a felon and take away your gun rights. Remember, these people are after you and your guns. They will take and make every advantage they can. The National Wildlife Foundation, Cabela’s and the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council are trying to fight this issue but so far it has not received much attention.

Did the BLM back down? Maybe…… Click HERE for info
