Okay, so I'm not really Superman

By John Kubicek

December 25, 2010

Here I am, early Christmas morning, writing on my blog. Why would I do such a thing? Shouldn't I be soundly sleeping, or at least watching for Santa's sleigh passing overhead?

Years ago, I would have been doing the more traditional type of things. But now, it's all about letting those in my social network know that I love them and care about them... and I go and post something on my Facebook page that took me totally by surprise:
Okay, I'll admit it.... I did have a few tears when I watched this just now. I was very blessed to have had Connie in my life. Our last Christmas before she passed away was 7 years ago... I'm just sayin'....
They say that time heals. However, we should ask, how MUCH time? I lost my wife Connie early in 2004, so it had been seven years since we last had a Christmas together. I seemed to have been doing okay in the last few years, but tonight (actually, this Christmas morning), I watched a couple videos I had put up on youtube several years ago. Despite the lousy quality of the videos, being that they were two of the first videos I had uploaded, I found tears running down my cheeks. Please watch both of the following videos, and then I'll explain just why I posted this writing... And believe me, it wasn't to bring you down, but to lift you up!

Miss You So Much - Part 2

Here's the thing. There will always be loved ones in our lives that are not with us any more on these holidays. It isn't going to be easy. We will always have the wonderful memories of the way things were! Without a federal grant (earmark) to research this theory I have, I can only say by personal experience I've learned that every Christmas or special holiday can be be quite difficult without certain loved ones still being with us. But, so is the fact that we may have had wonderful memories of Christmas in the past that just can't be duplicated! You may just find out that keeping a tradition can be a very difficult task as you grow longer in tooth.

As it is now Christmas Day as I write, I sure want to leave you with a more positive and happy feeling than what may have come across so far.

You see, we celebrate this day because of the gift that God gave us with the birth of the baby Jesus! It is great cause for joy to the world! Is there really any sorrow you have found in life that can't be negated by this great gift? Along with the Facebook post I referred to above, I commented that the pain we keep inside can be our "kryptonite," the substance that can diminish our outward Superman appearance. And yes, as you saw above, the grief of losing loved ones can do that. But what we have to do to neutralize the "kryptonite" of our lives is to do our best to find all the things that we can be very thankful for. We need to always bring along our "Superman" attitude, love those that are still with us, and make new memories!

But, I am not really Superman. There are times when I am not sure that I can ever imagine the joy of Christmas Day the way I remember it from times past. The bar was set very high with my family's way of following and owning our own holiday traditions... with watching our kids open presents... with seeing the joy in my Mom's eyes. I'm suddenly realizing that it's time to create new and wonderful memories of this Season!

Setting the Stage - Part 4 - The Evil Axis

EDITOR'S NOTE

Written four years ago, I take great pride in knowing what I knew THEN! Does that make me prophetic? Absolutely not, but like Glenn Beck, I picked up on things that were happening, and was somehow able to see what was going to be in store for America in the future.

I may not have ever been aware of things that were going on had I not followed some sources, such as Joseph Farah's WorldNetDaily.com site, which I believe that I first learned of by listening to CoasttoCoastAM. I am hoping the same for all of those that are now reading my columns or watching my videos. I know that there are a few out there. I know where you live (just kidding, but letting you know that the government DOES - and Wal-Mart WILL - know how to track you down). I can just tell you, that you're going to be hooked, and become a news junkie, when you learn enough that you start wondering when the next shoe will fall. Just sayin'....

Setting the Stage - Part 4

The Evil Axis

By John Kubicek

As much as I am excited about getting to the next part of this series, I can not guarantee that it will ever happen. I can not ever be sure that those that are "Setting the Stage" will permit me to continue this topic. I am not sure where "they" will draw the line to what is permissable to tell you. We'll just have to see. [John Kubicek, "Setting the Stage - Part 3"]
Just a couple weeks ago, I believe around July 16, I had written a post for this topic of the same title, "The Evil Axis". And what happened to that post? I didn't back up this forum like I should have after writing that post, that's what. And when my website went down not too long ago, I was not able to recover that post. I was not as vigilant as I should have been, and I lost a battle that should not have been lost. Though that original post is no longer with us, the good news is that I didn't "mysteriously disappear"! (But I still believe there are people out there that could make that happen if they wanted to...)

So, here I am, trying to rewrite that post. This installment that I am writing today, though, will not be identical to the original version. Had the original post still been intact, I was planning on making some major revisions to it. There have been events in the Middle East and in North Korea that began about the same time I lost the original post, and those events clearly illustrate how The Evil Axis is influencing current events.

President George W. Bush told us about the Axis of Evil shortly after September 11, 2001, during his State of the Union speech to Congress in 2002. In that speech, President Bush singled out three countries: Iraq, Iran and North Korea. All three countries, paraphrased from the President's speech, either possessed or were building weapons of mass destruction. (That's WMD, for all of you who have been visiting other planets in the last several years).

But where is the connection for an "axis" of evil? How was the President able to connect Iraq with Iran when the two countries went through a long war against each other in the 1980's? Iran is being run by those in Islamic theocracy of the Shiite sect of Islam, while Iraq's former leader, Saddam Hussein, a Sunni Muslim, committed mass murder against Shiite Muslims? The two countries hated each other enough to kill over a million people in the process of their war. An "axis" would seem to imply some type of alliance among the countries. To confound me even more, I had not come across any information that showed any politcal agreements between Communist and atheistic North Korea and the two countries of Iran and Iraq in the predominate Islamic world of the Middle East.

However, that while the agenda and policies of the three countries in the "Axis of Evil" seem to differ, there actually is a commonality of agendas. This is an important point to remember. Going back in history to WW II, there was another "Axis". President Franklin Roosevelt's administration, or the press, used the term "Axis" in defining the enemies in the war we had against Japan, Germany and Italy. Both Japan and Germany were controlled by tyrannical, genocidal maniacs that wanted world domination, while Mussolini of Italy was a Fascist thug that was looking for political and financial power for himself and his corrupt cronies. Those three countries of the World War II "Axis" had one thing in common, which was the desire for the defeat of the United States of America in order to eliminate the one obstacle to the destruction of freedom and liberty.

So, does that help in understanding what the Axis of Evil as defined by the President in State of the Union address in 2002? (If not, obviously you were not coherent when reading the last paragraph; go back and read it again, and pay attention this time!) You will find that there is a clear parallel between the "Axis" of WW II and the "Axis of Evil" in the Global War on Terrorism (WW III?). The "Axis of Evil" - Iraqi insurgents, Iran, and North Korea - all possess the agenda of wanting to bring down the United States and the Western culture. Democracy and freedom doesn't work for tyrants. It isn't just a matter of resentment of our wonderful way of life in this country. The actual matter of fact is that the USA stands in the way, in one way or another, of those countries promoting their tyrannical influence in this world. So, don't forget that military axiom, "The enemy of my enemies is my friend". It will soon start to make more sense.

Now that I have established the fact that there is a connection among the three countries that President Bush labeled the "Axis of Evil", I can now explain what I feel is "The Evil Axis". Obviously, the original three countries President Bush mentioned as the "Axis of Evil": Iraq, Iran, and North Korea are the basic foundation of "The Evil Axis". Though the U.S. defeated Saddam to take him out of the picture, there are still terrorists in Iraq that are responsible for the deaths of over 2,500 of our troops stationed there, along with many thousands of Iraqi citizens. The enemies we are still fighting in Irag, the terrorists, want to discredit the United States, and make us look like the agressor, and the oppressor, in the eyes of the Iraqi citizens.

The Evil Axis

While President George W. Bush's definition of the "Axis of Evil" includes Iraq, Iran, and North Korea, my designation of "The Evil Axis" allies expands on the original "Axis of Evil" countries of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea:
Syria - Replacing Iraq, we now have Syria, who is a very strong ally of Iran. Syria tends to get their marching orders from Tehran. Syria is very much involved in the current conflict in Southern Lebanon between Isreal and Hezbollah. The rockets and missles used by Hezbollah on Isreal were made by Iran and supplied by Syria. And then there is the fact that just before the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003, Saddam had most of his WMD moved to Syria.

Terrorist groups - al Qaida, Hezbollah, Hamas, Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades (The military wing of the Palestinian Authority, who is trained and supplied by Hezbollah), Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Egyptian Islamic Jihad, and all the other terror groups dedicated to Islamic Jihad around the world. In an article by Paul L. Williams and David Dastych posted on WorldNetDaily.com on April 28, 2006, they wrote:
The relationship between Iran and bin Laden dates back to June 21, 1996, when bin Laden attended a terror summit in Tehran. The gathering attracted terror leaders from various places throughout the world, including Ramadan Shallah (the Palestinian Islamic Jihad), Ahmad Salah (Egyptian Islamic Jihad), Imad al-Alami and Mustafa al-Liddawi (Hamas), Ahmad Jibril (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine), Abdallah Ocalan (the Kurdish People Party), Muhammad Ali Ahmad (al Qaida), and Imad Mugniyah (Hezbollah). The summit resulted in the creation of the "Committee of Three" that would meet on a regular basis for the "coordination, planning and execution of attacks" against the United States and Israel [emphasis my own]. The committee members were Ahmad Salah, Imad Mugniyah and bin Laden.
That seems to leave little doubt that terrorist groups are part of The Evil Axis. While Saddam Hussein was paying the parents of Palestinian suicide (homicide) bombers the sum of $25,000 for their bombings against innocent Isreali civilians, Iran was funding Hezbollah to the tune of about $250 Million per year.

China and Russia - Iran and North Korea are very grateful to their top supporters, Russia and China, two of the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council. These two countries will always vote against any type of resolutions that have any meat to them to prevent the building of nukes in Iran, or the crazy things that North Korea does, like "testing" missiles on July 4, 2006. There is nothing that will ever come out of the U.N. Security Council, because of China and Russia's votes, that won't make Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-Il laugh and continue to ignore the U.N. resolutions. Russia has strong ties to Iran with weapons sales and assistance with Iran's nuclear program. Russia is a major weapons supplier to Hezbollah, which includes the Katyusha rockets. China has deals with Iran for hundreds of billions of dollars for Iranian oil. And don't forget about the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a regional anti-American economic and military pact. China and Russia are members of this organization, and Iran (President Ahmadinejad) is moving toward being a member and attended a recent meeting in June 2006.

Venezuela, Cuba, Somalia, et. al. - President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela would have cut off the oil to America long ago - in support of the Palestinian struggle against Isreal - but the U.S. is too big of a customer and Chavez would lose billions of dollars. That could make it a little difficult for him to give the billions of dollars in financial support to the Castro regime in Cuba every year. Despite his hesitancy to directly confront America, make no mistake, Hugo Chavez would back any country that takes on the United States, including Iran. If the United States had any confrontation with Iran, like to take out their nuclear weapons program, I have no doubt that Venezuelan oil would quit flowing our way. The rest of the countries included in the segment of The Evil Axis are those countries with radical Islamic or Communist regimes, most of which hate America. Though many of those countries are way too poor and technologically backward to be able to supply weapons to the Axis, they have plenty of resources in the way of indoctrinated people willing to die for the evil cause.

MS-13 and other major crime syndicates - I can not leave criminal organizations off of the list of The Evil Axis, as they can be easily linked to being part of an attempt to destroy the United States. MS-13, a Salvadoran street gang, is a major outsourcing service to our enemies, from human trafficking to being major drug transporters and suppliers. So, who knows, maybe many of the politicians in America seem to be so cowardly because they had either been threatend by MS-13 or other crime organizations, or they just fear that they will appear on a "hit list". Even more frightening, is the possibility that MS-13 may have helped to smuggle terrorists and/or WMD (suitcase nukes?) into the United States through the unsecure Southern border with Mexico.

Leftist Liberals In America - Friends of our enemies are probably going to be our enemies, at least on this list of "The Evil Axis". I am almost 100% sure that many of these people would have been hung as traitors 230 years ago. I believe these are people that would sell out America because they hate our way of life. For some absolutely insane reasoning, they feel that living in the tyranny of Islamic or Communist rule would be better than what we have now. Whether it is calling for the immediate withdrawal of our troops from Iraq, being buddies with Hugo Chavez, or making "documentary" movies saying that President Bush is responsible for 9/11, these are people that are intentionally hurting America, for what ever EVIL agenda they have. With Saddam Hussein out of the picture, we still have Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-Il at the reigns of volatile tyrannies that are either developing, or in the process of building, weapons of mass destruction. There is the possibility that none of the WMD that has been or will be built will ever be used by Iran or North Korea. Instead, there is another danger lurking. The WMD that is being produced by the remaining members of the Axis of Evil, and the Iraqi stock of WMD that went to Syria, could be - or already has been - sold off to terrorist organizations. That is the recipe for the worst nightmare facing the Western world.
The Evil Axis is made up with allies that were former enemies of each other. (In fact, I really wonder if the "civil war" between Sunni and Shiite insurgents in Iraq aren't just staging the conflict in order to mount disagreement in American and world politics.) Is there a possiblity that formerly conflicting extremist groups are actually working together? Upon the current conflict between Isreal and Hezbollah and Hamas, there seems to be little doubt that this war is a coordinated effort among the members of The Evil Axis. And though the conflict is currently confined to the Isreali fronts - Gaza, Lebanon and the West Bank - there seems to be a grave danger to America waiting in the evil shadows.

It seems to be a good time to pray for the United States of America. And I'm getting too old to have to learn to speak Arabic, Farsi, Spanish, or Chinese. What I've been able to write so far (thankfully, in English... for now), has been a primer for what is to come. I have been providing you with pieces of the puzzle that will allow you to put things together. There are things going on in this crazy world that make us want to wonder if many of us will still be around a lot longer. No, I don't mean to sound pessimistic about our future. In fact, having a negative outlook is completely opposite of my actual feelings about what is going on. I truly believe that current events point to wonderful things to come!

What I want to write about from this point forward, is that we are seeing things happen that is "Setting the Stage" for some awesome events of Biblical proportion! Yes, I just gave away where this is all heading. So, stay tuned!

Setting the Stage - Part 3 - Your ID, Please

EDITOR'S NOTE

Okay, so what I wrote about four years ago hasn't happened... YET. And you never know, it could still be a decade away. Or maybe not...

As my good friend Phil Elmore would probably say, "technology is a tool that can be used for good or evil." Deciding which way the technology of tracking people will go can go either way. It can be used for the good to keep the pedophiles away from our children, or to find children that fell prey to those perverts that may do them harm. On the other hand, think of the way the government could control us, our speech, and limit our pursuit of happiness in freedom! Tracking chips could be used as a weapon against those of us that want to promote liberty and stop tyranny from ever taking hold in this great country! Just sayin'...

Your ID, Please

By John Kubicek

It's okay, it is for your security. A microchip, with global positioning satellite compatibility. The most convenient place to embed that chip would be on your hand. Just a wave of your hand by any of the chip readers that will soon be all in place. Everyone will have one. That way, the terrorists' every move can be tracked. And nobody will be able to rob you of your identity. That would be virtually impossible. So they say...

In an article posted May 5, 2006 on worldnetdaily.com, written by Ron Strom, we learn about the Real ID Act, passed last year and signed into law by the President. The article, "Is coming national ID 'mark of the beast'?", says that "Public Law 109-13 requires the national ID portion of the plan go into effect by May 2008."

The article mentions that "The Real ID Act requires states to participate in a federal data-sharing program when issuing driver's licenses, making those licenses de facto national ID cards." The states will have to include personal data on their driver's licenses that will be able to be shared by every other state, and be machine-readable at government agencies and banks. After May 11, 2008, the card will be required by the Transportation Security Administration in order to board a plane. In fact, you may have a lot of limitations imposed on you if you didn't have that "national" ID card.

And in the mean time, technology has been developed that would make it possible to have implantable chips that would have this data, and probably a lot more, embedded under your skin. Not only will there be the data, but there is also the ability to put Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) compatibility on these chips. In other words, every person that has this chip would be able to be located and/or tracked.

The GPS chips may not be mandatory for humans, at least by public law, yet... However, there is already a movement toward a mandatory program to be able to track agricultural livestock animals - cows, pigs, sheep, horses, chickens, turkeys, geese, and ducks, and who knows what else the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) can come up with. Maybe even Grandma's parakeet! Anyway, a program to be administered by the USDA called NAIS, which stands for the National Animal Identification System, would do just that. Okay, we want food safety, so the USDA is working on this program in case there is an outbreak of the "Mad Cow" disease (BSE) or the Avian flu. The use of "food safety concerns", (or in other words, FEAR), has been the justification to get such a program in progress. Well, that, and the fact that countries we export livestock and food to will eventually require such a program to be implemented.

So, how long will it be until an implantable microchip with GPS capabilities will become mandatory for humans? Decades? Years? Well, think of what could be done with such a tracking system, and the well-meaning justifications that could be made. Let's start with the convicted felons. At the very least, the pedophiles and sex offenders that are now required to register. Just too many of them slip away from the system. They aren't where they say they are staying. And you know, the pedophiles mostly confess that they can never be "cured" of their sickness. So to protect kids from these monsters, let's give them all the trackable chips. We would know their every move. Come close to our kids, and alarms go off. What a wonderful idea.

But, speaking of kids, what if our kid gets kidnapped by one of those creeps? Wouldn't it be great if we gave the kids an embedded chip that could track their movement? We could locate them quickly if they go missing. We might even be able to track down and nab the sick-o registered sex offender that snatched the kid. So, why not?

Oh, and of course, there are all those illegal aliens out there. To give them that pleasure of amnesty that the U.S. Senate wants to give them, let's compromise. They can have the amnesty through the "guest worker program", in exchange for a national ID system that includes an implanted micro-chip - of course, with GPS tracking capability. You can bet that the chip-maker (VeriChip) would like that huge market (11 million people? 20 Million? 80 million? Who knows how many for sure, especially if a guest worker program is implemented!) for their chips.

And, just to get the rest of us into the program - might as well go all the way with this! - let's do away with cash. Do away with cash, and you do away with the drug dealers. They would have no way to receive their funds without every transaction being tracked. And of course, then we can also rid the world of the identity thieves, bank robbers, muggers... etc. (Caveat: No matter what, ID chip or not, criminals always manage to find a way of getting around laws and justice, even if it means buying off politicians or killing off prosecutors and judges.)

Even if a National ID placed on an embeddable microchip with the capability to be tracked by the GPS were to become reality in this new millennium, it won't really do that much to solve many of the problems we face. However, what I wrote above will all be part of the incremental steps to sell the idea to the masses. In all likelihood, it will start out as a voluntary program, we won't be "required" to get "chipped". However, as national security issues dictate, and the technology gets more and more refined by testing it with the "volunteers", you can pretty much count on it being a necessity of life; that is, if you want to buy, sell, eat, drive your car... Even if the government doesn't mandate it, you can bet that you won't be able to pay for your groceries at Walmart someday without the chip to "identify you".

I didn't come up with the information for this post off the top of my head. I consumed many articles and quite a few hours of listening to talk radio on Coast to Coast A.M.. I got well acquainted with such people as Ron Strom and Henry Lamb on WorldNetDaily.com, and Ervin Baxter, Jr. and Katherine Albrecht (NoNationalID.com).

It is very important for you to do your own research, starting from the leads to resources I just offered to you. It isn't just some imaginary conspiracy theory about the implantable microchips. It is real. Go ahead, Google a search for "Digital Angel" and "RFID". And also, you need to read this article: "Chip-maker wants to implant immigrants" that I found on June 1, 2006 on WorldNetDaily.com.

There are many events going on in this world that you need to know about. I only take credit for gathering information from what I feel are credible sources, which I will eventually list at the end of this topic. God did not feed this information to me directly. Instead, I believe that God led me to this information, which has come from a variety of sources. And having found this information, have I developed a conclusion? Not completely, no. But I do believe that I am getting closer to answers that will help satisfy my own curiosity. And more than that, even, is the fact that much of what I believe is happening is being verified, day by day.

An RFID chip with GPS tracking abilities is now a reality. A need for some type of tamper-proof ID system for national security purposes is a serious reality. It's just a matter of adding up all the FACTS and seeing what we come up with. Let's find out together what this will all lead to.

As much as I am excited about getting to the next part of this series, I can not guarantee that it will ever happen. I can not ever be sure that those that are "Setting the Stage" will permit me to continue this topic. I am not sure where "they" will draw the line to what is permissible to tell you. We'll just have to see.

Setting the Stage - Part 2 - The UN-Solution

EDITOR'S NOTE

Written back in May of 2006, you would think that in a little over four years, things would have changed by now. The border and illegal immigration was an issue in 2006, and it still is (see the second video I inserted). And there has to be a reason for the UN-Solution, meaning that the politicians are refusing to do anything but continue to try to get amnesty for all of the illegal aliens already in the country.

Some people say that politicians want amnesty for the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens in the country just to eventually get their votes. But what I wrote seems to say that there may be another insidiously sinister reason. I believed way back then that it has more to do with globalism and the ultimate goal of a New World Order, and I'm sticking to it. Just sayin'...

The UN-Solution

By John Kubicek

The United Nations. Have you ever wondered how quite ironic it is that a globalist organization would be headquartered here in the United States, a country that seems to be so pro-sovereignty? We're not just talking about the small crowd attending the John Birch Society meetings, or even the brave volunteers of the Minuteman Project guarding the border with Mexico. Most Americans take our liberties seriously, more or less, if you haven't noticed. And despite the "dumbing down" of our society through the nationalized "educational" institutions (a.k.a. Indoctrination Centers), there are still plenty of us who understand that our liberty ends when we lose our national sovereignty.

And yet, it has almost become taboo, politically incorrect, to be nationalist or patriotic!

As always, the liberals have all the answers. In politically correct jargon, they call it "globalism". They've made sure that Americans adhere to the values of "multiculturalism" through a constant barrage of indoctrination via the educational institutions and the mainstream media. This hasn't happened overnight. A long time ago, after the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, I was shocked when I heard Bush 41 (President George Herbert Walker Bush) say something like, "We have a New World Order". At least he didn't say "we now have a One World Government", but it was a sign that there are those that are incrementally bringing us to that point.
When we are successful, and we will be

The New World Order and Bush 43 (President George W. Bush)

Despite that address to the Nation that President Bush gave on Monday night, May 15, 2006, regarding immigration, I still do not believe that he, or our government, is really that serious about truly protecting our border with Mexico. In fact, for that matter, there was no mention of our Northern border with Canada. Okay, so the President doesn't want to "militarize" the Southern (or Northern) border. I have to ask, why the heck not? Could it be that Mexico or Canada would go to war with us? No. Would our neighbors think that we were getting ready to invade them? Not likely.

They have been talking about Immigration Reform in the U. S. Senate. They are trying to write a new bill in the Senate, which will have to be reconciled with the House immigration bill passed in January '06. Just last week, the Senate voted to include a 370 mile three-layer fence on our Southern border. But wait a minute, isn't the border with Mexico 1,950 miles? So, excuse me if I say that there truly is no serious desire to protect the border, and therefore, it must still be acceptable if a few more illegal immigrants (and terrorists) get into the United States. So, it isn't just President Bush that lacks the resolve to stop illegal border crossings. The mess with the immigration reform legislation on the Hill isn't showing much of a genuine concern by our House members or Senators, either.

Video provided by TheREALjohnny2k
There has to be a reason for this total lack of resolve to actually find a solution for immigration. There must be an insidious agenda in order for our government to keep looking the other way when it comes to allowing Mexicans, and others (Islamic Jihadists?), to so easily get into this country. Is it possible that the powers that be in the Beltway have decided it's time to take another incremental step toward the one world government? I have heard that there are some, such as the members of the Council on Foreign Relations, that would like a North America without borders.

And meanwhile, the United States seems to depend more on more on the United Nations to resolve other threats to our national security, such as preventing the crazy mullahs in Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Right. Just like the U.N. prevented North Korea from getting nukes. Just like we spent all that time going to the U.N. for more worthless resolutions while Saddam shipped his weapons of mass destruction to Syria. Iran is able to keep stalling while they keep processinig uranium so that they will soon have weapons-grade materials for making a nuclear arsenal of their own. I have to say that going to the United Nations is what I call the UN-Solution, (like the un-cola).

If the U.N. is so great at resolving world issues, then we must be missing something. We hear all those liberals screaming at our President, playing the blame game, about getting our troops out of Iraq. Ok, so why hasn't anyone suggested that the U.N. send in the guys with blue helmets into Iraq as peace-keepers? Especially now that Iraq has successfully formed their new unity government just last Saturday, May 20, 2006, I would think that a U.N. peace-keeping force would be the ideal form of occupation to prevent civil war in Iraq.

And maybe we should have U.N. blue-helmets stationed down along the border with Mexico, to prevent a civil war here in the United States. Okay, we're not ready for that. Not even the libs in the blue states are ready for that step. But, I am afraid to say, that is the direction we are headed for should this country continue to disregard border security. That's the UN-solution that nationalistic, patriotic Americans never want to see. But, it sure appears to be the road our leaders are going down.

And by the way, are you wondering who constructed that road I referred to above? Do you wonder what the final destination is? You may not have noticed, but there are many things going on in the world right now, and though they may seem unrelated, they aren't. What I've noticed was that all of these things are leading to the same ultimate destiny for mankind. All the roads are leading us to that same final destination, and they must all be downhill because it seems things are increasing in velocity as we get closer.

Setting the Stage - Part 1: Illegal Immigration: Can We Do the Right Thing?

EDITOR'S NOTE
I was a supporter of George W. Bush until half-way through his second term. That was when I realized he was just another globalist, when the unenforced open borders issue stuck out it's ugly neck, and certain people in Congress wanted amnesty for illegal aliens from Mexico. Guys like John McCain and Lindsey Graham should ring a bell, right?

I have no doubt now that the amnesty legislation that Congress wanted to pass was not only the beginning of the end of the Republican majorities, but it was also the beginning of the Tea Party Movement, when people spoke up and we killed the bill. Just sayin'...


Setting the Stage - Part 1

Illegal Immigration: Can We Do the Right Thing?

By John Kubicek

Originally posted Sat May 13, 2006 4:39 am

Why would people want to risk their lives to come into this country illegally? Is it because the United States of America is the greatest country in the world, with the most freedoms, a better life, a land of opportunity? Or, is it because of the entitlements - from health care to free education - that they can obtain without even being documented?

Realistically, we have to believe that both of the above are true. Just like the rest of us - we all want one or the other or both - our freedoms and entitlements. (It isn't just illegal immigrants that want all the benefits and entitlements of living in the United States of America!)

But here's the deal. I'm all for people having a better life. You will notice, though, most of the nations on this planet don't have an illegal immigrant problem. The only undocumented aliens in most of the countries South of our border are probably tied to terrorism and/or drug-running. However, many of those countries are losing their most valuable asset, human resources. People that want to work, people looking for opportunity, and people that desire the freedom to pursue their dreams. People are running from those countries to come to the United States of America.

So, I've made it clear that I can understand the reasons why the immigrants (legal, or not) want to come to the U.S. They want opportunity, and the freedom to take advantage of the opportunities we are privileged to have here in this great country. Right? So, do I have a problem with immigration? Absolutely no problem - as long as it is LEGAL immigration!

Obviously, illegal immigration has become a big issue in the United States. It is an issue, because there are some major problems associated with illegal immigration. Here are some of the problems this great country faces right now:
What do we do with the 11 million.... (Oh, 12 million? Or is it 20 million?) ... "undocumented" (illegal) immigrants we have here now? As long as our borders remain unsecured, millions of illegal immigrants have been able to cross the border, undocumented. We don't really even know how many illegal immigrants are already in the United States. That is why we hear numbers ranging from 11 million to 20 million. There is no way to know for sure how many there are, as they are undocumented.
  • How do we find all the immigrants that are undocumented?
  • Do we deport them all back to Mexico or their country of origin? How exactly would we know where to deport them to if they are undocumented to begin with?
  • And, what do we with illegal immigrants if they have "anchor babies" here in the United States? (Anchor babies become citizens of the United States just by being born here.) Do we split up their families by deporting all the illegal aliens even if they have had children that are born in the United States while they are here illegally?
  • Should we make it easier for illegal immigrants to become naturalized citizens?
  • Should those immigrants that are already here illegally face harsh punishment, or should they be given "amnesty"?
It is not fair to U.S. taxpayers when many of the illegal aliens, who generally work for wages "under the table" and bypass tax withholding from their paychecks; yet their kids go to our public schools, they visit hospitals and medical clinics and get free medical care, and many drive cars without licenses and insurance.

Employers that hire illegal immigrants and pay them "under the table" without withholding taxes are breaking the law. Many of the employers breaking the employment laws are never caught, because the existing laws are rarely enforced.

And of course, there is the great debate about whether or not businesses could afford to replace the labor force they may have hired (illegally) if all the illegal immigrants were deported?
The Solutions

While many of these issues are currently being debated in Congress as well as in state legislatures, many Americans feel that we already have some good laws in place, but they just haven't been enforced. New laws that are enacted will not solve the problem if our government still lacks the resolve or the ability to enforce them! Besides, in reality, the only laws and policies that NEED to be written into law, or revised, should be those that strengthen our national security, and that determine how to deal with all illegal aliens that are already here.

First, let's start with the national security issues, because that needs to be the number one priority at this time. We are in a war right now. Our war is not with another country (except for those countries that sponsor terrorism). This war is against radical individuals that use terror as their weapon. In order to keep this country safe, there is no doubt that we MUST be able to prevent terrorists from getting into the United States. Therefore, we must
  • Secure our borders; not just our southern border, but also the border with Canada, and our coastlines.
  • Determine who is already in the country illegally. All foreign nationals need to be documented. The laws and regulations currently in the books need to be thoroughly enforced.

Guarding our borders obviously will not be an easy task, but it needs to be our top national priority. It will require a large budget. We will need to have sufficient technology and equipment in place, along with a very large increase in human resources for border patrol agents, the National Guard and U.S. Coast Guard personnel. Even if we have enough personnel and equipment in place, it will still require building a secure barrier on our borders. We have to make it as close to impossible as we can to keep terrorists from easily crossing the borders into the United States, or for that matter, to be able to escape from the United States following a terrorist attack.

And now to the other difficult question, what do we do with the MILLIONS of illegal immigrants ALREADY HERE? I just don't believe it is feasible to round them all up and kick them out of the country. However, what we could do, is to give them a time limit, from the moment the President signs the bill, to require them to become documented. (Let's just say 30 days.) They should be fingerprinted, photographed, and required to carry a national ID card with their photo and any other pertinent information microchipped (or on a magnetic strip) on the card, which could even include digitized fingerprints. Should they fail to "register" and get the national ID card, then they should have to face stiff penalties including some time in the slammer and having all assets purchased (or stolen), while in the United States illegally, confiscated; and then deport them back to their country of origin. There would be absolutely no "amnesty" for those that fail to initiate the registration process.

Of course, there will be the debate about employers and businesses not being able to afford the additional labor cost of following all the current employment statutes. However, what about all the businesses that are already following all the labor statutes (such as not hiring illegal immigrants and the minimum wage laws)? They are finding it difficult to compete with those businesses that aren't going by the book. Economically, the scenario would not be all that bad if all the businesses followed the rules! With that labor force now being paid under the table - undoubtedly with illegally low wages - the increase in their wages would be added to the national economy, and will just make it stronger. Getting all the employers playing on a level playing field is the only moral thing to do. (And as for the businesses that can no longer afford to stay in business because they have to pay higher wages LEGALLY? Tough toe-nails!!)

And there would be a great benefit to paying this 11-20 million strong labor force above board. It is called taxes. That is a huge, I mean massive, increase in the amount of revenue that the government would then be taking in - and that is what we'll be able to use to upgrade our border security... or maybe even keep Social Security and Medicare from going under (as soon). Keep in mind, much of the illegal immigrant population is on the young side, thus reducing the imbalance we now face because of the increasing number of people that will be retiring soon - the aging baby boomers. And the taxes that the immigrants would be paying will help pay for the services and entitlements that they would be able to eventually receive - legally!

Yes, the solutions I have so far given you may be just reaching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the issues, especially that of how soon they would be able to become citizens (if they should so desire). Well, to solve that issue real quick, this is what we will need to tell them: "Get in line!!" They don't deserve, and they haven't yet earned the PRIVILEGE to become a naturalized United States citizen. Again, back to the need to just keep the laws that we already have regarding citizenship, with enforcement included. There should not be any relaxed requirements for them to become citizens. Hey, immigrants, like it or vamoos. Learn English. Go to school if you have to. Adjust to our cultural heritage. Just do all the things that many of our ancestors did to become good citizens!

Just one more item. It is argued that they either take jobs away from Americans, or maybe they are doing jobs that Americans won't do. Look at it like any other thing in capitalism and a free society: Competition for the job, whether you are a LEGAL immigrant or already a U.S. citizen. And for businesses, compete for the best workers, which may require better wages and benefits to obtain the desired work force. But again, it all needs to be done on a level playing field, both for employers and for the employees!

If we increase our Border Patrol and Coast Guard, and hire a bunch more INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) agents, there will be many more jobs available, which will offset the increase in the legal work force available to employers. And just to help to offset the cost in increasing border security, and the hiring of more INS workers, we could tack on an additional 5% Federal income tax on all guest-workers. (I just picked the 5% number out of the air. That could be determined once we find out how many "new" guest workers we would have and what it will cost to administer immigration policies and increase - or actually have - border security.)

I have yet to explain what the illegal immigration issues have to do with the main topic of this current series, "Setting the Stage". Don't worry, I won't be leaving you hanging on that for very long. But I will give you some profound thoughts to ponder until the next time I write. (A clue.) Have you asked yourself, "how did we get into this mess with illegal immigration in the first place?" Why are there already laws in place, but they aren't being enforced? How could we be in war against terrorism, and have such open, unsecured boarders? The question I'm not going mention is, "who's fault is it?" That is a question that will be answered down the road as we progress through this topic.

Are you having fun yet? Have I made you think? Are you looking forward to my next post? (You should be!) Being that I was at my best today, and the last few days while writing this post, I have no doubt that you'll be telling your friends about this Forum.

And by the way, as I was preparing this post for publication, it was announced that President Bush will be addressing the nation live on prime time TV on Monday, May 15, 2006. The address will be about immigration, so I heard. I am just wondering how much of what he will say will be in lock-step with what I have written today. Not meaning to be arrogant, but I am hoping that it is at least close to my suggestions that I've written about so far!

Setting the Stage - The Prologue

Editor's note:

I began writing the series, "Setting the Stage," on April 30, 2006. Since that time, the series has received over 8,000 views. I have decided that with the things that are going on in the world right now, it was time to update it and bring it to this venue. You will understand why I am doing this once you start reading it.

As I repost the series here, I am not going to change the text of what I had written (unless it is a spelling or grammatical error I may have missed in the original version). However, I will be enhancing it with multimedia - video or pictures, something I could not do in the original venue - where appropriate. I will be including the dates of the original posts just so that you are aware that anything I wrote a few years ago may not apply any more... or, maybe prophetically, some of it will be almost to the point of being profoundly surreal.

This series will take some reading on your part. But, I know about the readers of my blogs: You are smart people, and you love to read. It is still the best way to gain information. And please remember that the title to this series is "Setting the Stage." The things you will read about are the events that have lead to where we are today. I will also begin each post with an Editor's Note such as this one.  With that, let us begin.

UPDATE (4/02/11) ~ Here is a Table of Contents for all Setting the Stage chapters posted here so far:
The Prologue (You are here)
Part 1: Illegal Immigration: Can We Do the Right Thing?
Part 2: The UN-Solution
Part 3: Your ID, Please
Part 4: The Evil Axis
Part 5: God's Chosen People
Part 6: Could the Eagle Crash and Burn?


SETTING THE STAGE

Prologue

By John Kubicek

Originally posted Sun Apr 30, 2006 4:48 am

There was once a time that news could only travel at the speed of man's ability to journey across the countryside, continents and oceans. Now, news can literally travel at the speed of light around the world in split seconds. Obviously, the speed at which news can travel has changed our lives. It offers us a great ability to be informed of things going on around us, anywhere in the world where things are happening.

But even more profound has been the amount of information that we are now able to access. Of course, the internet has a lot to do with the quantum leap that mankind has made in the ability to gather and disseminate the news.

I am not all that old, but I do remember very well how most of the news came from a very limited number of sources. There were the big three television networks - ABC, NBC, and CBS - and their nightly news shows. And the local newspapers provided us with the national and world news they received over the wires. One problem at that time was the content they provided to us was limited by a 30 minute time slot, or the size of newspapers and news magazines.

The other major problem with the limited sources of news offered to us was much more insidious. As a matter of fact, that problem with the majority of the mainstream press still exists. However, we now have alternatives. We no longer are limited to the indoctrinating mainstream media. We no longer have to suffer from the mind-numbing, sensationalized, left-leaning, liberal thinking content that the mainstream news organizations offer.

One of the first pursuers of truth, fighters for honesty and moral objectivity, was conservative talk radio. And yes of course, the hero of the airwaves, Rush Limbaugh. And along came another alternative, though at times tending to be a little more to the left: Art Bell, with his late-night Coast to Coast A.M. radio show that thrives on providing a whole new meaning to alternative news and stories you will NEVER hear or read or see in the mainstream press.

At about the same time, the cable TV news industry began to flourish during the 1980's and 1990's. Ted Turner's CNN and Headline News was a major turnaround, which offered 24 hours of news on TV. But it was FoxNews, a new creation that brought us "fair and balanced" news 24 hours a day. Rupert Murdoch's FoxNews network was the silver bullet into the heart of the mainstream TV news. At least it has been from my perspective. My loyalty to Tom Brokaw ended long before his eventual retirement. My dependency on NightLine with Ted Koeppel was finally overcome long before he said his last good night. Even Bill Gates, teaming up with NBC, got into the fray to bring us MSNBC on 24 hour cable. However, I just can't come up with much clever to say about MSNBC. That network was just a little too much like the mainstream media, and I was never one of their fans.

And now, we have the internet. The number of alternatives to the mainstream news is virtually infinite, especially when you count the countless news blogs, uh, like this one will be. While the internet's strong points are bringing us news and information very rapidly and providing us with many alternatives, it's weaknesses are, well, bringing us news and information very rapidly and providing us with many alternatives. Sometimes the truth can tend to be not quite as reliable, because all these news organizations are racing to get their stories on the net first. This can, and does, lead to less validation of sources. And let's face it, when you throw in all the bloggers, truth can become distorted at times. But it does give us the alternatives, and more freedom to choose who we want to listen to and believe.

Now, there is one special news source that I want to mention. And, I in fact want to acknowledge that this person, and his online news media that he founded, is greatly responsible for my inspiration to begin "Our Time to Escape - the johnny2k Blog". That would be Joseph Farah, and his WorldNetDaily.com website. (And when I can eventually afford it, his "G2 Bulletin".) Not only does he and his organization bring us powerful, trustworthy news stories, it is presented from a Christian perspective. Joseph Farah, for many reasons, is one of my heroes.

This is all I have time to write for now, but I believe I have made my point. You will soon be reading my future posts that will further explain my motivation and inspiration for writing this particular blog topic, "Setting the Stage". This post is the background setting for a stage that has actually been under construction for thousands of years. There is a spiritual conflict that has been going on, the ultimate battle between good and evil, and the final act may be upon us much sooner than many people think, or want to believe.

(If that last sentence disturbed you, I don't really apologize. But so that I don't leave you hanging, let me take this opportunity to quickly lead you to some very insightful information before I close. If you haven't already, you should start reading my forum topic, Our Forty Days of Purpose! You will find out about God's Perfect Plan for us when it is "our time to escape"!)

It was a Memorial Day celebration through commemoration

By John Kubicek

After a 12 hour shift at work yesterday, I finally got home just before 11:00 a.m. And then I hunkered down, in my man-cave, and went to WORK! It was Memorial Day, and I wanted to do all I could do to honor our troops, both the living and the fallen, the vets and active duty. I had remembered the words I had read early Monday morning that said, "Don't just celebrate. Commemorate." Those words rang in my head all day like the ringing of the Liberty Bell. The Fox & Friends weekend crew calls it an "ear-worm" that you just can't get out of your head for a day or more.

So, I put off my "celebration" for awhile while I worked on my "commemoration" for our troops. I wrote on twitter (and helped to start the new tag, #MemorialMonday), put up a couple of youtube videos, and well, I multitask very well. It was truly a day well spent. And I really believe that if they were still around, guys like Benjamin Franklin and George Washington would have been patting me on the back, and maybe even have had a hug or two.

And finally, I was able to take some time off. I prepared a music mix CD featuring 4TROOPS, along with some patriotic music I had acquired just after 9/11. I did that quickly, so I didn't know quite how it was going to sound. Well, I grilled some chicken last night while listening to the CD... I ended up listening to the 80 minute CD TWICE while doing my cooking. And I didn't even burn the food! (In fact, it was delicious, to die for as they say.)

"To die for food" is one thing.... To die for FREEDOM is something else! There are so many that have done that, and that was what yesterday was about. And I want to tell you, that the living active duty service members and the vets also should be honored on Memorial Day, because they are also those that are or were WILLING to die in the fight for Freedom if that was what it took.

In those 160 minutes of listening to that awesome CD (twice), I had a lot of time to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made both to create this great country and then to keep it together. And yes, I had tears rolling down my face. When I was in the USAF, it was peacetime... although the Iranians had taken Americans hostage, and a bunch of guys from Hurlburt Field died in the attempt to rescue the hostages... Some of the Army Rangers that didn't come back were my neighbors. Eglin AFB, where I was stationed, went on high alert. President Jimmy Carter's peace agenda was plummeting into the abyss of failed plans. That was a time when I wasn't sure what I would be asked to do, but I was ready and willing.

For a brief few moments, way too brief, I finally forgot about all the troubles facing our great country and this world, and I did something I had not done often enough recently. I prayed. I thanked God for all He has given us. I thanked Him for all those that have been in our lives - all too briefly - that made the ultimate sacrifice at some point. And I said, "Thank you Lord for using me in whatever way you need to help spread the Word." And that is what I believe I am doing.

I had my best Memorial Day celebration ever through commemoration of those that have fought to gain and keep our freedom. Thank you, Lord, for waking me up! With that being said, let me now give you a video that I came across this morning, featuring 4TROOPS singing, "For Freedom":




Can I hear a big HooooRAH for that one? You betcha! And now, for another very touching video that I found in a tweet this morning:



Oh, you say you want to see the videos I put on youtube yesterday? Sure, we can do that!

May 31, 2010 - 10 in 10: Veterans FOR FREEDOM!





May 31, 2010 - Freedom: This is what it's all about! Honor our vets today!

4Troops: Understanding Our Purpose ~ By John kubicek

By John kubicek

A Captain in the military was shot and killed. Well, not exactly, because after a 110% heroic effort by the medics and docs, the Captain survived what should have been a fatal wound. You will see him in a video later on in this space, but for now, let's see why his life was so important to us.

It seems like it was just days ago, but turns out to be a few months ago... (Where does time go?)... I happened to see and record a group performing on Fox & Friends. This group is called 4Troops. Yes, their CD is being promoted, but as you will learn, it's for a purpose. From February 05, 2010, "For Freedom":



A little over a week later, 4Troops had an encore performance on Fox & Friends. Well, there were technical difficulties as they call it in the TV business. In the military, they call it a SNAFU... Here's the video that tells this part of the story:



I would call it redemption. Not too long ago, my old computer went through the death throes. Chips burned out.... it couldn't have been much worse. Well, thankfully and fortunately, I was able to acquire a new machine. It kind of took me awhile to learn the new stuff on Windows 7 and work out some of the kinks... For a while, there were extreme audio difficulties, which turned out not to be because of my computer, but from my media provider. The problem was finally resolved, though, and the very next day I was able to capture this segment with 4Troops on Fox & Friends:



Would you like to know something? I love what Ron, Meridith, Dave and Daniel stand for. They're using their talents for a good purpose, and I respect that greatly. It really hit me yesterday when I put up this video of their appearance on Fox & Friends Sunday with Dave, Alyson and Clayton. And by the way, I was able to get a bonus song on this video. You're going to love this:



There is another part to this story. It all seemed to come together yesterday. What you just saw in the previous video referred to the Captain that came back from Death to complete his earthly mission. You could call this the absolute "after the show show." Just imagine what this guy went through, and how he is now telling us about those that need more than just the physical therapy. Remember that song, "Galveston?" Emotions must be dealt with.



I think we all need to agree with this: We need to complete our "deployment" in this world. God has a purpose for us. We just need to understand it. We're not going to get out of this battlefront easily. And that's the problem. Because if this battle is getting to be too much for you, at any time, you can walk out of it. The only problem is, what if God still has a purpose for you even if your legs were blown off? Is it ever a good time to give up?

Victoria Jackson is Jazzed for the Tea Party and Sarah Palin!

By John Kubicek

I don't want to brag, but like Victoria Jackson, I must also be prescient. When I posted the following video on youtube, I called it right. I knew what the results would be. Here is what I wrote in the video description:
I'll just tell you this right now, the left will make something of this segment. I guarantee it. And they will say things that wouldn't be politically correct, except then they are being hypocritical. But, watch them try to smear the Tea Party Movement, and just watch for the fact that they will try to deflect the blame on us, the Tea Party movement, We the People, the MOB. You will find the most intolerance ever known to the internet once the progressives (the left) see this video. Be prepared for some hateful vitriol. We know who they are, and WE SURROUND THEM!!!
And if you want to see how prescient I was, just read some of the comments that were posted at the video. (Unfortunately, I must warn you, there will be some very vulgar language, and probably even saltier than what Joe Biden said to Barack HUSSEIN Obama the other night. But then, what would you expect from Progressives?)

Now, here is the video that you need to see:


Video provided by TheREALjohnny2k

Now, of course, you know that I'm not really prescient. It was really just a matter of knowing that is how the left reacts to anything that threatens their progressive Marxist religion. Back last summer, during the Congressional August break and the Town Hall meetings, you heard people like Nancy Pelosi claim that the tea partiers were a bunch of Nazi thugs, that we were a mob. And don't forget Janeanne Garofalo's profane vitriol, calling WE the People a bunch of "teabaggers." (For those that don't know, that's slang for something I don't feel is appropriate to mention here.)

Never forget that the Progressive left (the Commies) will continue to do all they can to discredit the Tea Party Movement, to constantly disparage and marginalize us. It's the way they've been taught, whether from some liberal college professor, or by reading Saul Alinsky's "Rules For Radicals."

I don't know if somebody at Fox News was trying to set up the Tea Partiers by getting Victoria on this segment about the Tea Party Express rally in Searchlight, Nevada (home town of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is going to get trounced in November), in order to marginalize us. That does seem to be a possibility, however. But it doesn't matter. The only people that would criticize Victoria and this video, would of course be - who else? - Progressives. And for that reason, I posted the video, knowing that it would draw them out, and you could see for yourselves what the opposition to freedom is really like. And, it frightens me that people like the Godless heathens who write the vitriolic comments are the same kind of people that are now running this country (into the ground).

Victoria may be just a little goofy, but you have to admire her love for this country and the fact that she is a true patriot and freedom fighter, who is just telling it like it is. And I am going to stand up for her, and with her.

This is a case where you don't have to listen to me

By John Kubicek

NOTE: I was listening to Glenn Beck's radio show when I wrote this and added it to the blog.

If you want to hear commentary on Lindsey Graham from the professionals, then you should be listening to Glenn Beck with his guest, Senator Jim DeMint. My head feels like it is going to explode now that I've heard DeMint sort of support Grahamnesty. Maybe he should watch this video:



Glenn Beck does not have to feel alone. Hey, Senator DeMint, Glenn gets it, and I don't think you do. Senator DeMint, don't you wonder why Sen. Graham keeps trying to help out illegal immigrants? Close Gitmo? The National ID?

It's Michelle Malkin - Always right on!

By John Kubicek

Anytime I get home from work and manage to catch the last hour of Fox & Friends, and get to see a Michelle Malkin segment, it's a great day!  As always, in the segment I got to see last week, on Feb 25, she was right on!

In this segment, Michelle and the Fox & Friends hosts, discussed some great subjects:
  • The Health Care Summit
  • National Security, and the real national security risk, Attorney General Erik Holder
  •  Hollywood liberals (Joy Bahar and Bill Maher) making fun of Dick Cheney after an apparent 5th heart attack
As always, Michelle gets it right on every one of the issues. But it was on the first subject, Health Care Reform, where she brings up a point I so much wish people would pay attention to. The regressive taxes that have been levied on tobacco users is ridiculous. But it is also so ironic that the hope and change candidate would hurt many of the very people he had voting for him in 2008.  Too funny!

So, just watch the awesome segment in the video below. You will soon understand why I'm always fired up when I catch a Michelle Malkin segment on Fox & Friends! And by the way, Steve, Gretchen, and Brian, excellent job in "squeezing" such great info out of Michelle! Great questions!

The Kamikaze pilot wasn't a right-wing-extremist or Tea-partier!

By John Kubicek

On February 23, 2010, I uploaded the video you will see below. I just knew that the things Bernie Goldberg was telling Bill O'Reilly would lead to a deeper meaning. And sure enough, just a few days later, I found a column that said that the Conservative Movement, and even more importantly, the TEA Party movement, were going to distance themselves from certain "fragments" of the movements: The FRINGE... I was moved to promptly write a response to that column. I am pretty sure that this video gave me some of the ammo that lead to what I felt when I read the column by Kenneth Vogel.

In this video, you will see the part where Bernie explains how the left-wing media attaches any kind of violence to the FAR right wing conspiracy (which probably includes ANY of us in the TEA Party movement).

This video segment of O'Reilly is now so much more relevant because of what had been written by Vogel and in my response. What you will be seeing will definitely help you connect the dots.

And yes, in listening to Sean Hannity just now, I'd swear he read the column I wrote yesterday, where I mention "United we stand, divided we fall!"
