Has Thuggery Invaded the Republic?

Catholic Church's New International Views

Neil Munro works for the Los Vegas Sun, the locally owned and independent newspaper that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, considered the best news website in the nation and also won the DuPont Award for broadcast journalism. Young Neil is one of the White House reporters expected not to ask serious questions that reveal the warts in today’s presidential policies. On June 15th 2012, Neil broke the unnamed rule to never ask a question when the president had no advance written notice.

That never applied to our previous presidents who freely endured shouts, mainly insulting questions meant to be demeaning by the likes of Dan Rather and the partisan ancient lady reporter Helen Thomas, who was called on cue by both Republican and Democrat presidents as a tradition to be first to present a question which was obviously venom bent. She sat on the front row seat to lead the flock of “reporters” questions that every president going back to the Eisenhower’s administration is an unnamed tradition. The major media had a ball commenting on Thomas’ and Rather’s questioning and their persistent diatribes in an interrogatory format followed on by vehement opinions in the leftist Cronkite tradition.

Both Helen Thomas and Dan Rather tested the limits of temperament of mainly Republican presidents. The liberals in the press corps had a vendetta that was coordinated between them against especially Nixon and Reagan but hardly any criticism of Clinton; rather they offered silence for his sexual antics long before the Lewinski episode in the Oval Office. Dan Rather on nightly CBS News broadcasts would continue his assault followed on in a coordinated fashion by all the other controlled major media outlets influenced by Marx, Engels and the Hollywood notable socialist philosophy. That philosophy still permeates the new crop of White House reporters, obedient devotees, who soft pedal questions to Obama, the kind that make boredom and mediocrity a placebo digested by a dumbed down public to swallow.

There is real fear of being fired for breaking the thug-like power of a president that none really know who is this man who came out of nowhere; who never held a job other than a community organizer; who never ran a business, who never accomplished anything except being backed by Chicago’s political corrupt Daley administration and while in office never wrote a bill and voted present or no on all matters conservative, and most of his term as one of the two Illinois’ senators, spent laying the ground work to capture the presidency. No doubt outside, powerful forces were involved in guiding him, selecting him as a presidential candidate. Before he launched his campaign, both he and Hillary Clinton were invited to meet with the Bilderberg Group; John McCain was not invited. During the campaign and as president his power is such as to prevent the opening of his school records, financial records, clear documentation of his birth, academic grades.

Who paid for his Harvard education and why classmates, only one or two readily admit that they remember him, yet he purportedly was editor of the Harvard Law Review publication? Why did he and his wife give up their law licenses (the reason could be very interesting) and why wasn’t it revealed by the major media that Obama was not a professor at Harvard, but a part time lecturer?

Why did he have on his application form requesting a government grant as a foreign born student using a British passport indicating Kenyan birth and his religion Muslim, then conveniently a birth record emerged from the State of Hawaii of questionable authenticity - an unanswered mystery of how he now is a U.S. born citizen although upon scrutiny the birth certificate turned out to be doctored? The major media is silent about the proof that the document shown on the internet is not credible. The major media ignores the birth certificate provided by his grandmother showing that he was born in Kenya.

Where is the White House Press position on who really is our president? Sadly, all hell broke out when the furious narcissist Obama was asked by the young Neil Monroe: “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?” The question related to Obama’s plan to stop deporting younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Obama technically did not issue an executive order. Rather, the deportation policy was itemized in a three-page memo issued by czar Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, who follows enthusiastically the wishes of her president and has authority to implement it by the use of “prosecutorial discretion.” Immediately, the controlled press launched a diatribe demanding that Neil lose his press card, and be fired by his employer. Major media journalists from the far left continued a diatribe stating how it was impertinent to interrupt a prepared speech of the chief executive of the land and the way he posed the question violated protocol and decency. What hypocrisy of the left! What downright duplicity! These robots respond to bosses who copy Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels plan.

What we do know about the phantom called Barack Husain Obama occupying the highest office in the land is that he ignores the Constitution; that he is noted for being far left of left in his positions on gun control, maintaining open borders, increased federal surveillance of what he deems as potential enemies; that he has no interest in creating a budget and is determined to keep spending on hare- brained failures no matter what the consequences. He desires a new world order; both he and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are hell bent to place the Constitution subordinate to the United Nation’s Law of the Sea. We know that his idol was a devotee for total government and abrogation of state right Abraham Lincoln, a Hamiltonian devotee. We know the phantom is linked insouciantly with Nancy Pelosi having the same mantra as the progressive Senate Leader Harry Reed. We know that the phantom is subordinating the nation to the unelected whims of foreign judges located in Brussels, Belgium who are prone to side with America’s enemies in the United Nations. We know that his selection of two Supreme Court justices is dogmatically against the present U.S. Constitution. They believe the Constitution should be abridged anytime and for any excuse. All of the Supreme Court’s liberal justices (4 in number), Elena Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan desire a “Living Constitution,” which means no constitution, like the Soviet Constitution that was changed at the whim of Stalin and his duma.

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan defies established precedent by ignoring the simple principle based on fairness of recusing herself from deliberating on the most major decision before the court in two hundred years, Obama’s Health Care Reform Act, better known as Obamacare. The over-whelming majority of state legislators and the voting public are against the monstrosity. Yet Kagan is known to have been involved in the plan before her appointment to the Supremes. She actually had a hand in writing the body of the replacement of the Medicare and Medicaid portion. She exemplifies a distain for accepted procedural norms as well as the Constitution as written by those brilliant minds of its founders who gave us freedom from out-of-control governments based on their experience under King George 3.

The fact is the Constitution is not the same as that adopted in 1789. The 14th and 17th Amendments weakened the document and Lincoln’s disregard of the state to secede was a major blow to the very intent of the Founding Fathers. Lincoln declared that in the document the central government was superior to states’ laws, but that contention ignores the fact that, if true, most state representatives would have refused to sign on when attending the Constitutional Convention. I recommend that the reader obtain Thomas Dilorenzo’s magnificent documented exposure “The Real Lincoln.” In it he quotes the historian Ostrowski: The historian Ostrowski illustrates the absurdity of the notion that Lincoln’s suppression of the Southern secession (not the secession itself) was constitutional.

“In order for such acts to have been agreed upon by the attendees of the Constitutional Convention, which barely ratified the Constitution as it was, they would have had to agree to the following stipulation:

"1. No state may ever secede from the Union for any reason.

"2. If any state attempts to secede, the federal government shall invade such state with sufficient military force to suppress the secession.

"3 The federal government may require all states to raise militias to be used to suppress the seceding state (or states).

"Thus Ostrowski says, is a fair summary of what Lincoln said the Constitution had to say about secession and Ostrowski is right. It is inconceivable of being adopted by the Constitutional Convention."

That, of course, is exactly what occurred after Lincoln became president. His war was contrived to make the South guilty of the first shot at Fort Sumter and thereby gain support of the Northern and Midwestern states who really wished secession rather than war to occur. But when the Citadel cadets fired at a packet boat meant to provide food supplies to the stationed Union troops, starving after Lincoln put them there to provoke hostilities. There was no way that the South could tolerate a Union army garrisoned off the coast of South Carolina, so Jefferson Davis was provoked purposely to allow the first shot of what was expected to be a short war by Lincoln.

The reason I give space in this article regarding Lincoln is that the man had the ethics of a snake who on one side of his mouth prior to his inauguration supported slavery on several occasions and then reversed his position after inauguration, yet the Emancipation Proclamation was just falderal to placate the Northern abolitionists and was meant to free only those slaves in states who favored his position on secession, even though he knew slavery was never his purpose, demanding that a strong central government with authority over all the states and any deviation from that position would result in anarchy, if secession were allowed. There were many viable avenues to escape a war but Lincoln refused even discussing them. His position caused the loss of more lives than all the wars, including the Revolutionary Wars, WW I, and WW 2, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan and skirmishes in between.

Switzerland is a perfect example where each canton is independent from central government control and the central government, located at Bern, was assigned duties which the cantons could not handle, such as international affairs and administrative responsibilities similar to what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our states before the Civil War. Lincoln wanted to crush secession to set an example. He became a ruthless dictator imprisoning thousands of his fellow northern states countrymen who objected to his decision. The small state of Delaware also had a great deal of support for the confederacy, but Lincoln ordered the Federal Army to occupy the state and prevent the state legislators from discussing secession and through armed force the state was made to be first to “support” the Union cause under threat of bombardment. As with all dictatorial governments, after war is won by the most powerful side, martial law is imposed as it was on the Southern states for 20 years which was the same as imprisonment of the destitute white population left to be governed by carpetbaggers and scallywags, who appointed ex-black slaves as mayors and other political positions that they controlled.

Lincoln’s provocation of the South is no different than another American dictator who chose war by initiating an embargo on all oil and scrap metal export to Japan fighting a debilitating war with China. He was aware that this would provoke an attack most likely where the Pacific fleet was docked at Pearl Harbor. He even attempted to stack the Supreme Court and was successful in placing the American public in a new dimension of welfareism. Another American President in 1917 talked peace, but ultimately entangled us in a bloody war in Europe that concluded only to set the stage for a second world conflict. He once confessed that he betrayed his country and that “there are powers of which I dare not speak.” Another American dictator created a non-existing attack at the Gulf of Tonkin, a false flag to enlarge the American position in Vietnam, where he played as civilian Commander-in-Chief the role of an active duty general directing tactics on specific targets and overriding the advice of his military subordinates. The result was hundreds of millions of dollars wasted and thousands of our warriors killed and wounded ending in an embarrassing retreat leaving Vietnam to our enemy.

His wife’s personal financial interest in Brown and Root Construction Company, the main contractor in Vietnam, may have been a reason for escalating the non war war. He also launched a massive welfare spending spree without regard how deeply we were involved in Vietnam and the cost of which was not imposed on taxpayers or expenditure cuts. The American public continued as in normal life style, not like in WW II while the Johnson Administration created a calamitous debt - contributing to today’s welfare and medical program insolvency. Only when the effects of the draft, the student riots and negative publicity, the brilliant propaganda influence of the Communist Vietnam political and military strategy of North Vietnam’s General Giap’s effect on the negative continuing of hostilities effect the opinion in America and in Europe did Lyndon Johnson choose not to run for a second term and left it to President Nixon to end the catastrophe. The U.S forces never lost a battle but public opinion caused its defeat.

We can’t skip the two father and son team who led us into the latest imbroglio where, neither of the countries we attacked had a part in attacking America in the first place.

But now we come to the real reason for this article. Through stealth we have the phantom who came on a wind for change and is at the helm of an administration composed of radicals of all stripes. Communists, homosexual promoted by the major media ourlets; advocates for destroying religion, advocates for murder of the unborn even during the ninth month of conception, a galaxy of incompetent czars with vast powers never authorized or discussed with Congress, with judges who lack competence, especially the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Pelosi’s home district; dedicated backers of this president who poses as a manikin under their direction to mouth whatever he is instructed to do.

Our country gradually lost its honor, its morality, its confidence and its populace so inculcated with sports and tinker toys, TV games and picture phones glued to ears that won’t hear what is really going on around them; political apathy in local and definitive elections; obesity and self-indulgence; totally blinded and at the mercy of a government school system that indoctrinates the young on how to avoid pregnancy, using pills that cause cancer and no mention of the word “immorality” that condemns the soul as well as the mind.

I almost forgot to mention that false history is shoveled into the minds of the students throughout preschool, grade and high school and beyond in the major colleges, run by hare-brained socialist/communist/globalist faculty members and university presidents who rather build buildings, football teams, stadiums and palaces rather than reduce tuitions. This all leads to the present when illegal aliens take jobs from legal Americans; when fear runs through the middle class who see their savings disappear, where the cost of living can’t compete with the rise in food and the essentials – their mortgages foreclosed by criminals in the banking business who sink taxpayer money in derivatives, and a corrupt Congress and a traitorous president, leading us into a state of oblivion.

We may be on a cliff, but wise up and let them know we aren’t going to live blindly any more.
Let’s return to faith, to God and kick out the devils.
