Congressman Chabot, Republican, OH Directs Cameras be Confiscated at PUBLIC Town Hall Meeting

Some reports indicate the cameras were being used by democratic activists, hoping to post on YouTube to embarrass the congressman based upon his answers to constituent questions. It appears the congressman is quite competent to impeach his oath of office to, "protect and defend the Constitution" and in so doing, embarrass himself.

Much is being made by the left that it was a republican elected official who directed police to confiscate democratic activists' cameras. There was a sign posted that cameras were not allowed for security purposes, supposedly to protect the privacy of individuals attending the event. There were two film crews streaming live. The privacy canard will not work.

I do not care whether it's a liberal, conservative or Martian visitor who holds the camera. It is a public building. The congressman is paid with taxpayers' money. It is not against the law to film a public event. If this illegal restriction is being employed against the left, it will also be used against Constitutional Conservatives.

 We are frighteningly close to a police state.

US Day of Rage -- Planned NATIONWIDE for September 17

US Day of Rage -- Planned NATIONWIDE for September 17

The US Day of Rage website touts non-violence, yet notice one partner:  European Revolution and also note the hashtags in the Twitter feed, left column.

Wall Street targeted for Britain-style riots. 'Day of rage' aims to 'bring down the stock market'

Firefighters douse a building destroyed in the initial rioting in Tottenham, North London In the wake of Britain's riots, a group of American radicals are planning a "Day of Rage" targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism.

The upcoming protests, replete with a planned tent city in downtown Manhattan, is closely tied to the founders of ACORN and leaders of major U.S. unions, including the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.

There are indications the protesters are training to incite violence, resist arrest and disrupt the legal system. The protest aims to take root nationwide.

The Agenda - Grinding America Down

The Battle Bus color certainly matches the psyche of the Nation after three years of "Hope and Change" and is perhaps a Freudian choice for the president...

Because the Obama Battle Bus is a perfect visual. We're bruised and battered black from three years of abuse, by the administration, by our "representatives" (of both parties) and by the MSM. The same MSM that refuses to report fairly or even completely on any issue that does not fit the progressive, strike that, I refuse to help them distort and obfuscate who they are by dictating my choice of words... by the LIBERAL agenda.

I bruise easily because of the medication I require. It's my experience that bruises go from black to green to yellow as they begin to heal. With the campaign in full-swing -- because it IS a campaign bus -- we can take comfort in the fact that the Obama Battle Bus marks the depths of our abuse. We've survived and the colors and spirit of our Nation will begin to change to reflect the healing of a Presidential Election.

Green for the return to Constitutional Conservatism. Then yellow for the unabashed proclamation of American Exceptionalism and dawn of a new day in America. Think President Reagan's Morning in America, his presidency also following another failed president.

Then the bright clear light of Freedom from Tyranny in only 447 days.

Getting in Front of Rick Perry from Unified Patriots

While I don't agree with every sentiment in the Unified Patriots opinion piece, it does merit sharing. I do not like many of Governor Perry's actions, re:  illegal immigration. I am in total agreement with the author's over-arching theme that our main goal MUST be to insure that Obama is not reelected next year. Given the current GOP choices, I believe Perry provides the best opportunity to take back the White House.

Partial Excerpt from Unified Patriots:
  'If we have ever needed someone who is unafraid of using the words “God” and “American exceptionalism” in the same sentence at a time when this country faces her worst moments in history, her most oppressive drought of leadership, and her lowest moments of disregard and disrespect from her neighbors, surely we need him now

Pilgrims' Progress? Author Unknown for Attribution

"Winston, come into the dining room, it's time to eat," Julia yelled to her husband. "In a minute, honey, it's a tie score," he answered.

Actually Winston wasn't very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington. Ever since the government passed the Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its "unseemly violence" and the "bad example it sets for the rest of the world", Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be. Two-hand touch wasn't nearly as exciting.

Yet it wasn't the game that Winston was uninterested in. It was more the thought of eating another Tofu Turkey. Even though it was the best type of VeggieMeat available after the government revised the American Anti-Obesity Act of 2018, adding fowl to the list of federally-forbidden foods, (which already included potatoes, cranberry sauce, and mincemeat pie), it wasn't anything like real turkey.

And ever since the government officially changed the name of "Thanksgiving Day" to "A National Day of Atonement" in 2020, to officially acknowledge the Pilgrims' historically brutal treatment of Native Americans, the holiday had lost a lot of its luster. Eating in the dining room was also a bit daunting. The unearthly gleam of government-mandated fluorescent light bulbs made the Tofu Turkey look even weirder than it actually was, and the room was always cold.

Ever since Congress passed the Power Conservation Act of 2016, mandating all thermostats - which were monitored and controlled by the electric company - be kept at 68 degrees, every room on the north side of the house was barely tolerable throughout the entire winter. Still, it was good getting together with family. Or at least most of the family.

Winston missed his mother, who passed on in October, when she had used up her legal allotment of life-saving medical treatment. He had had many heated conversations with the Regional Health Consortium, spawned when the private insurance market finally went bankrupt, and everyone was forced into the government health care program.

And though he demanded she be kept on her treatment, it was a futile effort. "The RHC's resources are limited", explained the government bureaucrat Winston spoke with on the phone. "Your mother received all the benefits to which she was entitled. I'm sorry for your loss."

Molon Labe

Molon Labe (mo-lone lah-veh), translated to mean, "Come and Get Them."

Navy SEAL Aaron Vaughn, who perished in Afghanistan over the weekend, had these two words tatoo'ed on his left arm. The same arm that was cradling his infant daughter, as shown in a photo posted today on The Blaze.

Excerpted text from several Molon Labe sites (bold and underlining are my emphasis):   Molon Labe. Two little words. With these two words, two concepts were verbalized that have lived for nearly two and a half Millennia. They signify and characterize both the heart of the Warrior, and the indomitable spirit of mankind.

In 480 B.C. the forces of the Persian Empire under King Xerxes, numbering, according to Herodotus, two million men, bridged the Hellespont and marched in their myriads to invade and enslave Greece. 

King Leonidas of Sparta and another Greek city-state agreed to help stop the invading Persians, and marched with 300 hand-picked troops to Thermopylae on the north coast of Greece. Thermopylae was the best of three possible defensive areas in which Xerxes' invading army had to advance. This mountain gap along the coast was about 60 feet wide, and was the best location for a blocking action. The confines between mountains and sea were so narrow that the Persian multitudes and their cavalry would be at least partially neutralized. Since the 300 knew they were going to die fighting against overwhelming forces the first requirement was that each man had to have a son left behind.

Party Like it's 1978

Dow's losing streak unmatched since 1978.

Quick dirty graphic. Almost as bad as the economy... the image is definitely as frightening as what lies ahead for our great Nation.
