Even More 'Audacity' from Obama

The fact that the left is becoming frustrated with the lack of unity among Senate Democrats when it comes to passing health care is obvious from the events in the last couple of weeks. Various concessions have been made in an effort to bring enough Democrat Senators on-board in order to reach the magic number of 60 votes, all to very little avail. The latest effort, the Reed compromise, not withstanding.

So it comes as no surprise that the left, given who, and more to the point, what they are, have turned to more coercive tactics to strong arm the holdouts. Senator Joe Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, made himself a visible target very early on when he pledged that he would not vote for a health care bill which contained any semblance of a public option. Lieberman has been playing the political game with the big boys for a very long time and since he was a Democrat, was surely aware of the type of attacks which would be leveled at him. And until recently, the attacks he has endured have been of the typical nature. Now, some on the left have begun to take the attacks into vulgar and unethical territories, calling into question Lieberman's fidelity to his Jewish heritage and taking aim at his wife. Neither of which surprised me very much, as they are both very good examples of the left being true to what they are, 'rat bastards'.

Despite all of the audacity, treachery, and deceit from this White House in the last eleven months, I can still be surprised, however, by the depths to which Obama will stoop to advance his agenda. Like this from the Weekly Standard.

"While the Democrats appease Senator Lieberman, they still have to worry about other recalcitrant Democrats including Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson. Though Lieberman has been out front in the fight against the public option and the Medicare buy-in, Nelson was critical of both. Now that those provisions appear to have been stripped from the bill, Lieberman may get on board, but Nelson's demand that taxpayer money not be used to fund abortion has still not been met. According to a Senate aide, the White House is now threatening to put Nebraska's Offutt Air Force Base on the BRAC list if Nelson doesn't fall into line."

"Offutt Air Force Base employs some 10,000 military and federal employees in Southeastern Nebraska. As our source put it, this is a 'naked effort by Rahm Emanuel and the White House to extort Nelson's vote.' They are 'threatening to close a base vital to national security for what?' asked the Senate staffer."

"Indeed, Offutt is the headquarters for US Strategic Command, the successor to Strategic Air Command, and not by accident. STRATCOM was located in the middle of the country for strategic reasons. Its closure would be a massive blow to the economy of the state of Nebraska, but it would also be another example of this administration playing politics with our national security."

Playing politics with our strategic national security goes way beyond the typical parameters of dirty political tricks which have become a familiar feature of American politics, it is nothing less than treason.

A Letter to the President

Harold B. Estes, Master Chief Boatswain's Mate, USN (Ret.) proudly served his country during WWII in the south Pacific, and continued to serve after the war was over, a total of 23 years. He is a past president, chaplain, and National Director Emeritus of the Navy League of the United States, Honolulu Council. The BMC Harold Estes Leadership Award is named after him. As Sean Hannity would say, he is "a great American".

Chief Estes recently wrote an open letter to President Obama. While many active duty members of the military, when asked for an opinion of President Obama's performance as 'Commander-in-Chief', might simply say, "He's my Commander-in-Chief", and leave it at that. But, since Chief Estes is retired, he loaded all guns and let Obama have it.
Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don't believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos'n Mate. Now I live in a "rest home" located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can't figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
  • " We're no longer a Christian nation"
  • " America is arrogant" - (Your wife even announced to the world,"America is mean-spirited. Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

I'd say shame on the both of you, but I don't think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said," America hasn't lived up to her ideals."

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn't mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don't think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don't, I'll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don't want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight? You don't mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don't want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you're the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you're not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you're thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president. You're not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That's not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.

And I sure as hell don't want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.

Harold B. Estes

Shocker: Sparkman Killed Himself

Almost from the moment that the body of census worker, Bill Sparkman was found back in mid September, the left had pointed the bony finger of indignation directly at the right. Sparkman had been found in rural Kentucky, hanged from a tree, hands bound with 'duct tape', with the word "fed" scrawled on his chest. The left was predictably quick to jump to the conclusion that extreme rhetoric from right wing political commentators was at the root of the motivations of the killer or killers.

On Sept. 24th, a Democratic Underground blogger, zulchzulu, published a piece entitled, Handy Guide to how Republicans and Fox News are responsible for Census worker being hanged.

"We need to absolutely expose Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, CNN's Lou Dobbs, Michael Steele, Rush Limbaugh and the legion of others parroting right-wing lies for trumping up this nonsense and getting people to now commit murder in a hideous fashion."

It now appears that the American left, ostensibly the smartest people in the room, believed exactly what Sparkman wanted them to believe. After a two month investigation, police officials have concluded that Sparkman killed himself. Sparkman needed his death to look like murder and was relying upon the left's predictable pattern of 'rushing to judgement' for political gain to help him sell the deception.

The left could have been spared this embarrassment if only Janet Napolitano had done her due diligence as the Homeland Security Czar and seized control of this investigation. She could have recruited Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to oversee the investigation in order to ensure the desired outcome. After all, if these people can make the 350 years of global warming known as the 'Medieval Warm Period', and sell that scientific fraud to the world. Surely, they could have handled covering up a little thing like a suicide.
