Barred "Hoot" Owl - Majestically Beautiful

What??? :?

Did you think this was going to be about something other than owls? :shock:

Shame on You :lol:

Below this paragraph, all blue text on this page is a clickable live link. Also, when you see the word “Hooter” it is a live link to an additional owl photo and is well worth clicking. (Note: Upon opening many of the owl photo links, you will find that the images may be clicked on to further enlarge them.) All links will open in a seperate window.

Barred Owl – Strix varia

The first description of a Barred Owl was published in 1799 by amateur naturalist Benjamin Smith Barton. In Latin, “varia” is a form of the word “varius“, meaning diverse. It has also been known as Northern Barred Owl, Swamp Owl, Striped Owl, Hoot Owl, Eight hooter, Round-headed Owl, Le Chat-huant du Nord (French for “The Hooting Cat of the North”), Wood Owl, and Rain Owl. It is also mistakenly known as a Bard Owl.

Description: The Barred Owl is a medium-sized gray-brown Owl streaked with white horizontal barring on the chest and vertical barring on the belly. They are round-headed with a whitish/brown facial disc with dark brown trim. The eyes are brown, and the beak is yellow and almost covered by feathers. They have a long tail. There is no difference in plumage between males and the larger females.

Size: Length 40-63 cm (16-25 inches) Wingspan 96-125 cm (38-50 inches)
Weight: 500-1050 grams (17.5-37 oz) (average male 617g, average female 779g)

Voice: The Barred Owl is a highly vocal Owl giving a loud and resounding “hoo, hoo, too-HOO; hoo, hoo, too-HOO, ooo” which is often phrased as “Who, cooks, for-you? Who, cooks, for-you, all?” The last syllable drops off noticeably. Like some other Owl species, they will call in the daytime as well as at night. The calls are often heard in a series of eight, then silence, when the Owl listens for a reply from other Owls. Other calls include “hoo-hoo, hoo-WAAAHH” and “hoo-WAAAHHH” used in courtship. Mates will duet, but the male’s voice is deeper and mellower. Many other vocalizations are made which range from a short yelp or bark to a frenzied and raucous monkey-like squall.

Hunting & Food: A very opportunistic hunter, a Barred Owl can sometimes be seen hunting before dark. This typically occurs during the nesting season or on dark and cloudy days. A Barred Owl will use a perch, from where it dives upon its prey – meadow voles are its main prey, followed by shrews and deer mice. Other mammals include rats, squirrels, young rabbits, bats, moles, opossums, mink, and weasels. Birds are taken occasionally, including woodpeckers, grouse, quail, jays, blackbirds, and pigeons. They also eat small fish, turtles, frogs, snakes, lizards, crayfish, scorpions, beetles, crickets, and grasshoppers. Birds are taken as they settle into nocturnal roosts, because they cannot catch birds on the wing. They will also swoop down to the water’s edge to catch frogs, other amphibians, and occasionally fish. Barred Owls are attracted to campfires and lights where they forage for large insects. Prey is usually devoured on the spot. Larger prey is carried to a feeding perch and torn apart before eating.

Breeding: Barred Owls calls year-round but courtship activities begin in February with breeding occurring between March and August. Males hoot and females give contact calls. As the nesting season approaches, males chase after females giving a variety of hooting and screeching calls. Males display by swaying back and forth, and raising their wings, while sidling along a branch. Courtship feeding and mutual preening also occur. Barred Owls nest in cavities and will also use abandoned Red-shouldered Hawk, Cooper’s Hawk, Squirrel, or Crow nests. Eggs number 2-4 and are white, and almost perfectly round, with a slightly rough texture. They are likely laid every 2 to 3 days and incubation begins with the first egg laid. Incubation period is 28-33 days. The Male brings food to the female while she is on the nest. The Barred Owl is single-brooded but has a long breeding season, which allows for the laying of replacement clutches if the first clutch or brood is lost. When the young leave the nest, at about 4 weeks, they are not able to fly, but crawl out of the nest using their beak and talons to sit on branches. These Owls are called branchers. They  fledge at 35 to 40 days. Once they lose their down, there is no difference between adult and juvenile plumage. Parents care for the young for at least 4 months, much longer than most other Owls. Young tend to disperse very short distances, usually less than 10 kilometers (6 miles), before settling. Pairs mate for life and territories and nest sites are maintained for many years.

Mortality: Barred Owls have been known to live up to 23 years in captivity and 10 years in the wild. Most deaths are likely to be related to man (shootings, road kills etc). Great Horned Owls and Eagles are their only natural enemy.

Habitat: Barred Owls prefer deep moist forests, wooded swamps, and woodlands near waterways. Territories are 85-365 hectares (213-903 acres).

Distribution: The Barred Owl is widespread in North America, they occur across most of the eastern half of the continent from Florida northward to southern Canada; they are also spreading westward in the north of their range. Their spread westward is causing concern as they may compete with the endangered Spotted Owl Strix occidentalis. Northern populations may be partially migratory depending on food resources.

I Like Big Ol’ Noisey Hooters

I’m lucky enough to have a vast population of Hooters in this area and on my property. It’s always a treat to sit out on the porch and listen to the chorus. The more owls hooting, the better it is. Some nights it’s like a bunch of them have gotten together to put on a concert. I have counted as many as seven of them hooting back and forth at each other. Their voices would be coming from all different directions and distances. Some times it will be just one lonely Hooters calling out for a buddy or, most likely, a date.  The Barred Hooter Owl is fairly easy for humans to imitate and I can do a pretty good job of getting a response from a poor lil’ lonely Hooter ;) It’s a trip when a human can get a creature like that to carry on a conversation. I guess you’d have to try it to really get a sense of the feeling it gives you. When more than one owl are in concert it’s best to not butt in, as it will confuse them and usually make them hush up. Barred Owls have individual unique voices that are personalized to each bird. They also have unique dialects common to the other Hooters in their area. Barred Owls from here might sound slightly peculiar to the ones where you’re at. It’s no different than a Texan and a New Yorker sounding a bit odd to each other. In New York, even people from different parts of the state sound different to each other, not to mention people from separate boroughs within NYC sounding different. Right CJ?

Hooter Vocals

The audio at the above link was a female calling out twice to a male and then he answered her. She must have said something really nice, because he got a bit excited, as per the squawking following his standard hoot reply.

Barred Hooter Owls have a variety of vocalizations that can be categorized according to certain characteristics (e.g., number and pattern of notes related to changes in pitch) that are consistently similar for individual owls (e.g., 8-note call). Individual owls may exhibit minor variations that are consistently repeated and allow unique identification. Most (probably all) Barred Owls have the capability to alter a standard call with a variation of that call. Many variations are similar between owls, while others appear to be unique to individual owls. Both sexes can have a gurgle sound applied to the last note of the 8-note series and the 1-note call. During bouts of simultaneous calling, a “cawing” quality is usually present. Some calls are heard almost exclusively from one sex (e.g., female whistle), but it is likely that either sex is capable of doing any call.

Male: Standard 8-note call with a pronounced gurgle.

Male: A slight variation of the 8-note call with a fast initial 4-note phrase, followed by a normal 4-note ending phrase. No gurgle.

Female: Standard 8-note call with a gurgle.

Male: 25-note series (standard call is 8 notes) call with gurgle. This was the longest series call I’ve heard.

Female: A 9-note series call with a slight gurgle. Two juveniles can also be heard, one very faintly at the beginning and one at the end.

Male: A 1-note call is used by both sexes, but predominantly by females, to locate another owl.

Female: A 1-note call with a pronounced gurgle. Note the extended length of the call and the pronounced gurgle compared to the male.

Females will whistle, usually in the presence of their mate or to call their young.

Females will also use a whistle-screech with hoot variation.

Juveniles use a begging call. Begging calls from 3 juveniles.

Male and female exchange. The male is closest and loudest. Note the long distance between them.

Male crashing through branches while calling. That must have been one hot looking female for him to go through all that trouble.

Bouts of simultaneous calling can be very entertaining as both sexes get excited and stimulated by the calls of the other. The bouts can include the standard calls, variations, bits and pieces of standard calls, and plain weird sounds. Bouts can be long, short or recurring. Often one of the adults (usually the male) will continue with one of the standard calls when the bout of simultaneous calling is completed. It is not a duet in the sense of calls being synchronized or dependent upon other calls. It’s a Hooter free-for-all.

The link below is an example of multiple Hooters all simultaneously calling out. It’s a brief example of a Hooter “Concert” that I mentioned earlier in this post. As I said previously, I have counted as many as seven Hooters all going at it at once. It can last for long periods of time and is one of the most bizarre things that you could ever hear, while outside in the night’s darkness. When I’m lucky enough to encounter their chorus, I will sit and listen for as long as they are willing to perform. It’s a great show and you don’t even have to buy a ticket, as they do it all for free.

The Finale

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

During a full day and partial night that it took for me to create this post, I took many breaks in which, I walked out into the backyard and on several occasions I was able to hear the owls talk. They’re always around and it’s always a pleasure to listen to them!

    Republicans Plan to Avoid Obamacare Repeal Demands of the American People
    by DFX March 31, 2010 13:11
    Infowars.com
    March 31, 2010
    It is not only Democrats who fear a political backlash come November. So do Republicans. “Top Republicans are increasingly worried that GOP candidates this fall might be burned by a fire that’s roaring through the conservative base: demand for the repeal of President Barack Obama’s new health care law,” reports the Associated Press.
    “We believe the issue of repeal is one that puts the Republicans in a pretty sticky place,” said Democrat Menendez. “You never want to wage a campaign telling voters you want to take something away from them.” Take something away? Like a crushing national debt?
    Criticizing Obamacare and the authoritarian tactics of the Democrats is one thing. Actually repealing Obamacare is quite another, according to establishment Republicans.
    “Repeal is politically and legally unlikely, and grass-roots activists may feel disillusioned by a failed crusade.” In short, they may hold Republicans responsible, as they should.

    Army LTC faces probable court martial by challenging Obama’s Eligibility
    DECORATED ARMY FLIGHT SURGEON REFUSES TO FOLLOW ORDERS UNTIL OBAMA’S ELIGIBILITY IS PROVEN
    by Sharon Rondeau
    Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, U.S. Army Flight Surgeon, has refused to follow orders until proof of Obama’s “natural born Citizen” status is provided
    (Mar. 31, 2010) — A U.S. Army medical doctor and Lt. Colonel has refused to follow orders from his chain of command under the putative Commander-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.
    Lakin had first considered voluntarily deploying in the fall of 2008 when he learned about the questions surrounding Obama’s eligibility to serve as president and commander-in-chief. He halted his plans to deploy and in March 2009, submitted a Section 138 complaint through his chain of command. The reply he received on June 11, 2009 was apparently insufficient, as he filed another Section 138 complaint against General George Casey in November 2009. Lakin had also sought answers from his congressman and U.S. senators.
    In a statement released yesterday, Lakin said, “I am today compelled to make the distasteful choice to invite my own court martial, in pursuit of the truth about the president’s eligibility under the constitution to hold office.”
    A complete timeline of the events leading up to Lakin’s decision can be found here.
    Lakin is a decorated Army medical doctor currently serving as lead flight surgeon to General George Casey’s pilots and flight crew. Among his many military awards are the Combat Medical Badge, the National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Service Star, the Bronze Star Medal, the Army Flight Surgeon’s Badge, and the Meritorious Service Medal.
    His original military orders included providing a certified copy of his original birth certificate, which can be viewed here. The document contains the name of the attending physician, the signature of the state registrar, a date stamp, and an official state of Colorado stamp in the center as well as the full names, occupations, birthplaces and ages of his parents.
    The American Patriot Foundation has set up a legal defense fund for Lakin, details of which can be found here.

    CITIZEN TELLS MICHELE BACHMANN STAFFER THAT IF SHE WANTS CREDIBILITY AND CONTRIBUTIONS, SHE WILL HAVE TO ADDRESS THIS MOST PRESSING CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE
    by Arnie Rosner
    Is it time for another “Spirit of 1776″ Revolution?
    (Mar. 31, 2010) — The following is a letter sent to Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s office:
    Hi Jack,
    Recently I have become aware of some pretty upset folks across the country. We have exchanged many letters of mutual concern. What’s worse is that many are scared out of their minds, especially many close to me personally. There is something inherently wrong when people are outwardly fearful of their government. Don’t you agree, Jack?
    Much of the following represents my impressions of what others have shared with me, thoughts and ideas from very recent communications from a broad spectrum of concerned citizens across this great country. Based on various concerns about their personal safety and that of their families, many have asked to remain anonymous.
    What does that tell you, Jack?
    It is simply criminal the way our legislators are psychologically abusing our citizens. Whatever happened to the right to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”…all guaranteed by the Constitution and seemingly ignored by most of those who were elected by these folks to represent them; trusted, I must add, to represent our citizens in a manner consistent with the principles expected of real American lawmakers.
    What is so difficult to understand, Jack, is that the executive branch, both houses and the judiciary have all taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution identical or very similar to the following: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

    Comrade Michael Eric Dyson Hearts Obama
    Crossposted from KeyWiki Blog
    Democratic Socialists of America member Dr. Michael Eric Dyson gives an impassioned speech on his “brother” Barack Obama to last weekend’s “We Count! The Black Agenda is the American Agenda” Conference in Chicago, while comrade Cornel West nearly wets himself with excitement.
    Dyson is a former co-parishioner with Obama of Marxist Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ, in South Chicago. He claims to have known Barack Obama since 1991.
    This makes Dyson , along with Dr. Quentin Young, Timuel Black, Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf, Congressman Danny K. Davis, Cornel West , Lou Pardo and possibly Rev. Jim Wallis , yet another of Obama’s long term DSA Marxist associates.

We’ve assembled by the millions in D.C. We got crickets. Our demands to respect the Constitution have gone unheeded. The elections this fall will not stop the machine. Legislation is ready to be passed soon that will erode our rights even further. However we get where we need to go I’d rather get there peacefully. A lawful assembly to define the future of this country. If we win we restore the freedoms taken from us. If not, we can sign the death certificate for the late, great United States of America. If we do nothing we will be signing the death certificate ……..by doing nothing.

We are the majority — most people identified themselves as being conservative. The liberals hope we will just let it all happen without a peep as we have in the past.

    While in a Dr’s office the on Friday, I read an article in an old Time magazine that said the following. I wrote it down on a piece of paper and forgot to post it. Anyway here it is:
    The more power government seizes, the more easily it can suppress the truth. There is nothing to prevent a president from declaring martial law on false pretexts — any more than there is to prevent him from launching a foreign war on false pretenses. And when the lies become exposed years later, it could be far too late to resurrect lost liberties.
    The Insurrection Act (or known now as the Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order Act) Section 1076 is an Enabling Act-type legislation — something which purports to preserve law and order while formally empowering the president to rule by decree.

    I think it’s more likely you won’t have a choice. She’ll be on the streets or in your home, sans any government assistance. I think it won’t take long until we will all be subject to “financial review”, and only the “most needy” will be granted government assistance. All sorts of neat things the gubmit can do with those extra 16,500 IRS agents.

    The Capitol was locked down late Tuesday after the FBI advised the governors of all 50 states they would be receiving letters from an extremist group demanding their resignations.
    The letters advises those governors that, if they don’t resign, members of the group will come and “commandeer” their offices. It was received by the Capitol Police at noon Monday and immediately turned over to FBI investigators.

    But what is “our system of government?” Today, strict constitutionalists who still adhere to the explicit letter of the law of our nation’s founding document are few. Those who still agree with James Madison, who wrote that the “powers delegated” to the federal government are “few and defined,” while those of the states are “numerous and indefinite,” have been outnumbered and out-lawyered by generations of politicians and judges who have magically discovered new and virtually limitless federal powers, rendering the rights of the states less numerous and more finite than ever.

    Union Bosses’ Bailout Continues

    Union Bosses’ Bailout Continues
    Posted by: Matthew Moon
    Last Saturday, we told you how President Obama’s recess appointment of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board was a bailout to his union paymasters, with more job-killing bailouts to come. The bailout continued today when the White House Office of Management and Budget issued new guidance that proposes to grow the number of unionized government jobs by broadening the “the definition of jobs that should be performed by government workers instead of private contractors.” Here is the reasoning:
    The proposed guidance is built around the general principle that the more critical a function is, the greater the need for internal capability to maintain control of the agency’s mission and operations. This is most obviously the case where the function is critical to achievement of the agency’s core mission, but even for functions that may not be viewed as critical, such as functions that are not directly involved in performing the core mission, the agency may determine that the function is, nonetheless, sensitive enough as to require that many, most, or, in some situations, all positions be filled by federal employees.

    Obama: Tea party based on eligibility issue
    ‘There are some folks who just weren’t sure whether I was born in the U.S.’
    ——————————————————————————–
    Posted: March 30, 2010
    11:14 am Eastern
    © 2010 WorldNetDaily
    President Obama says the tea party movement is based on those who doubt his eligibility to occupy the Oval Office.
    Asked in an interview on the “Today” show about the tea party opposition to his plans in Washington, Obama said, “I think that it is still a loose amalgam of forces. There is a part of the tea party movement that actually did exist before I was elected. We saw some of it leading up to my election.
    “There are some folks who just aren’t sure I was born in the United States, whether I was a socialist,” he said.
    “That’s segment of it which I think is just dug in ideologically. That strain has existed in American politics for a long time,” he said.
    video:
    Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
    He said around that “core” in the tea party is a circle of people “who are concerned about the deficit, who are legitimately concerned that the federal government may be taking on too much.”
    He said the “emergency measures” he took over the last year to give taxpayer money to banking institutions and automobile companies “fed that sense that things are out of control.”

    Click to enlarge
    From Anarchist’ R Us
    On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers.[...]
    1. Organize counter-protests against the tea party demonstrations, same time, same place. This is probably the best option. We need to get in the streets on April 15th and show the tea party movement that there are lots of people out there who oppose their agenda.
    2. Get individual tea party protesters to leave the right-wing and move to the left politically.[lol] That would involve passing out stuff like this at the tea party demonstrations: http://www.anarchist-studies.org/node/299
    3. Ignore the tea party movement. This is the worst option because without anyone opposing them they could easily gain power.

    Members of the HI Governor’s cabinet respond to the Hawaii Petition Campaign
    BUT IGNORE THE CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS CAUSED BY OBAMA’S HIDDEN VITAL RECORDS
    by Sharon Rondeau
    The Hawaii Petition Campaign has garnered some response from state officials, but not the release of Obama’s records as requested. The records should be available, as Obama is a public figure.
    (Mar. 31, 2010) — Several members of Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle’s executive cabinet have responded to The Post & Email’s Hawaii Petition Campaign, all of them asserting that their department does not maintain or have access to the requested records of “Barrack Hussein Obama II.” However, not one of them stated what the proper department is. We know that it is the Department of Health, which has been avoiding inquiries from the public not only about Obama but also in regard to how the department operates and issues vital records and other data.
    More significantly, not one cabinet member acknowledged The Post & Email’s contention that without a constitutionally-eligible President and Commander-in-Chief, our nation has been plunged into a constitutional crisis.
    The Adjutant General of the State of Hawaii wrote the following:

    Dear “Concerned Individuals who Love the United States of America:”
    Our office received the petitions dated March 1, 2010.
    Your request to release all vital records which relate to Barrack Hussein Obama II and all government documents pertaining to the public statements made by Dr. Fukino, Director of Health, is not granted because this agency does not maintain the records, nor do we have access to the records you desire.
    Sincerely,
    Robert G. F. Lee
    Major General, Hawaii National Guard
    The Adjutant General
    Apparently, however, the General’s office knows the UIPA laws of his state better than the Department of Health does, as at least they provided a response and stated that they did not maintain the requested information.
    The Department of Health has not responded, nor has the Governor or Lt. Governor. Could it be they are unfamiliar with the state’s UIPA law?
    The response which provided the most information as to who might have the requested information came from the Department of Transportation and reads as follows:

    Dear Concerned Individuals:
    The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (DOT) is in receipt of your 2-page letter dated March 1, 2010, regarding your request for all vital records pertaining to the individual known as “Barack Hussein Obama II.” Included with your letter was 101 letters of petition, supporting your request. Please be informed that the DOT does not have any such requested records.

    The reason I ask about the military is because this regime would not sanction a Constitutional Convention. Nor would the complicit DOJ, Congress and Courts. So who would protect the Constitutional Convention and would ensure it’s mandates are implemented?

    Shock claim: Obama encouraged Palestinian ‘resistance’
    Violence targeting Jews aimed at pressuring Israel into splitting capital

    Posted: March 31, 2010

    © 2010 WorldNetDaily
    JERUSALEM – The Obama administration has encouraged “resistance” by Palestinians to protest Israel’s presence in eastern Jerusalem, a senior Palestinian Authority official claimed to WND.
    The senior PA official, speaking from Ramallah on condition of anonymity, said that in recent meetings with U.S. envoys to the region, the American diplomats supported and encouraged the concept of Palestinian protests to pressure Israel into evacuating eastern sections of Jerusalem.
    The PA official’s claim follows a meeting in Jordan last week between PA President Mahmoud Abbas and George Mitchell, Obama’s envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. At a press conference immediately following the meeting, Abbas declared the Palestinian “right” to “resistance” against Israel.
    The U.S. has come down hard on a decision by the Jerusalem municipality to approve 1,600 new homes in Ramat Shlomo, an already-existing Jewish community in eastern Jerusalem. The decision was made public during Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to the region earlier this month.

    Hi! Just getting to check my computer and the blogosphere since i’ve been out all evening. You all are having waaaaay too much fun with those little critters bouncing all over the posts hehe. I love them!
    Lots of good and sobering posts here tonight. I watched the Beck show today, with the Judge sitting in for Beck, and he had some powerful information and extremely well-informed guests. If you didn’t see it, try to watch a replay of it. I sure do like him except he won’t go after Obama’s eligibility under the rules of the Constitution. I’ve always wondered why.
    There seems to be so much on our side through the Constitution but I am so afraid that the slugs living at the top of our govt. will never let the Constitution be allowed to win the day. There are so many bad people now creeping into our federal level of govt. that we will have to do a massive firing if we get the chance in the voting booth.
    I am very afraid of what will be coming over the next few months. My only bright light right now is that both the public and the states are rising up and starting to push back. I only hope we can keep the momentum going for the next 8 months. I also hope and pray that nothing this nefarious group of criminals tries to do derails our efforts.
    Be careful, be alert, record and report everything, stay connected to people who matter, protect youselves and your family, campaign for good candidates and vote, vote, vote in November…..

    Jason Mattera (the young “Obama Zombies” guy who cornered Al Franken on the jungle gym clause) is on O’Reilly. O’Reilly jumped right on him like the alpha dog, lecturing him condescendingly about how he blew the interview with Al Franken by not showing Franken enough respect and letting him answer, and by calling him Senator Smalley. O”Reilly was basically saying if he wants to become a “real” reporter he needs to learn to play their little nuance pretend game.
    Mattera didn’t cower – he shot right back at O’Reilly telling him that there is no way he could even pretend to respect someone like Franken, and that young people need to start seeing these politicians for what they are.
    Materra won the debate.

    The reason I ask about the military is because this regime would not sanction a Constitutional Convention.
    ******************
    It’s not their’s to sanction. The states’ were OWN that right under Article V. The only way they can stop 3/4 of the states from voting for and ratifying a Constitutional Convention is to start a war against the citizens of those states. Civil War redux. Buchannan thought secession was illegal, but thought starting a war against the South was illegal too. He left that job to Lincoln. Too bad the founders never addressed the issue of secession.
    If 3/4 of the state voted for a Constitutional Convention do you think the Lame Stream media could keep it quiet? The whole world would know if Zero tried to stop it.
    And, oddly enough, the number of states that have either initiated or are considering entering into a lawsuit against the HCR bill is just enough to equal the votes needed to call a Constitutional Convention. If called, it will be the individual states representing the interests of the citizens of their respective states. I think they have more spine than the weasels in Congress. Just hoping we might end up with a decent President and a decent set of Legislators that could clean up everything isn’t a very practical way to solve the problems at hand. Now, please don’t take this as a “sarc”, cuz it’s not. What’s your solution? All we’ve done is talk about what I think is the right solution!

    As bad as things have been twisted, I believe we have to let the Nov election and Supreme Court battles play out. The people have to turn out in strong support no matter what we do. If the Supreme court caves on these 10th amendment and individual rights issues, our choices narrow.
    In the mean time it is prudent to pursue the Constitutional Convention, but given their ability to subvert, chances of an even worse Constitution are still there. It seems to me that we would not initiate that process unless we were certain of the outcome.

    Fernley and sdee – I for one thank you for the “lively debate” – While I haven’t done research on other states, NC did address the succession rule. I posted it many threads back – and here is what our state preamble of the state constitution says:
    “Sec. 4. Secession prohibited.
    This State shall ever remain a member of the American Union; the people thereof are part of the American nation; there is no right on the part of this State to secede; and all attempts, from whatever source or upon whatever pretext, to dissolve this Union or to sever this Nation, shall be resisted with the whole power of the State.”
    Our only saving grace would be:
    “Sec. 2. Power to revise or amend Constitution reserved to people.
    The people of this State reserve the power to amend this Constitution and to adopt a new or revised Constitution.”
    And this would be accomplished by:
    Sec. 3. Revision or amendment by Convention of the People.
    “A Convention of the People of this State may be called pursuant to Section 1 of this Article to propose a new or revised Constitution or to propose amendments to this Constitution. Every new or revised Constitution and every constitutional amendment adopted by a Convention shall be submitted to the qualified voters of the State at the time and in the manner prescribed by the Convention. If a majority of the votes cast thereon are in favor of ratification of the new or revised Constitution or the constitutional amendment or amendments, it or they shall become effective January first next after ratification by the qualified voters unless a different effective date is prescribed by the Convention.”
    As I have stated before we are heavy democrap rule, for now. Hopefully the Reps will gain control this election year and 3/5’s of members in each house could be called to amend it. Personally I feel other states will have to take the lead before NC even entertains the thought of calling for a Constitutional Convention at the federal level and then and only then will the people of NC have to smarten up and call for an amendment of the state constitution.

    The Abolition of the Family
    By Larrey Anderson
    America is headed down an extremely dangerous path to a potential catastrophe that is rarely discussed. It is the eradication of the family.
    Abolition of the family! … The bourgeois family will disappear, in the course [of history] as its supplement [private property] disappears, and both will vanish with the destruction of capital.
    The top priority of Marxism was the abolition of the family; Marx laid down the strategy for its destruction. His thesis was simple: Eliminate capital — exterminate the family [i]. More and more empirical evidence is piling up to show that this is exactly what is happening in America.
    Whether or not it is being done intentionally, the federal government, using money from the TARP and Stimulus bills, has taken precise steps to undermine the family. An article titled “How a New Jobless Era will Transform America” in the March 2010 edition of The Atlantic says this:
    The weight of this recession has fallen most heavily upon men, who’ve suffered roughly three quarters of the 8 million job losses since the beginning of 2008. Male dominated industries (construction, finance, manufacturing) have been particularly hard-hit, while sectors that disproportionately employ women (education, health care) have held up relatively well. … [It] looks possible that within the next few months, for the first time in U.S. history, women will hold a majority of the country’s jobs.

    No joke; this is a near-jawdropper. Even an apolitical mag like Entertainment Weekly calls it “quietly remarkable.” I don’t know what Letterman had in mind by booking her. Maybe he thought he was going to lure her into some sort of gotcha that would prove tea partiers are freaks, or maybe he was just interested in engaging someone from the other side’s grassroots — although he’s never done that before, to my knowledge. Whatever the reason, this ends up being one of the most efficient (if possibly inadvertent) debunkings of tea-party craziness to ever hit big media. Like Ace says, this woman comes off as a kindly aunt, soft-spoken and, per her own description, pacifistic. Even her one flirtation with fringiness, in what she says about Obama’s birth certificate, doesn’t go very far. She’s virtually the antithesis of the media narrative about tea partiers; imagine the surprise of the casual news watcher who’s been told the tea party is some kind of militia tuning into this. How on earth did she end up on this show?

    OBAMA SENDS “STIMULUS” FUNDS TO PHANTOM CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS

    OBAMA SENDS “STIMULUS” FUNDS TO PHANTOM CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS
    by Tom DeWeese
    March 23, 2010
    NewsWithViews.com
    To promote bragging rights for how much good the stimulus money was doing for America, the Obama Administration set up a website called “Recovery.gov.” Recorded on the site were details by zip code and congressional district as to how much money was sent there and how many new jobs were created as a result. It was a great piece of public relations where news reporters and politicians could find and quote the latest “good news for the economy.”
    However, there was one small problem. The Administration didn’t count on a group called New Mexico Watchdog, a project of the Rio Grande Foundation. While researching the site, the Foundation’s investigative research journalist Jim Scarantino noticed something strange. It seems the site was reporting money going to several New Mexico congressional districts that do not exist.
    The website reported that $26.5 million went to ten New Mexico Congressional districts. The site credited that money with creating a whopping 61.5 jobs. That, in itself, should be a crime – spending more than $430,000 per job crated. However, that wasn’t the big story. The fact is, those ten Congressional districts do not exist. New Mexico only has three – not thirteen.
    As New Mexico Watchdog broke the story, investigators from other states took up the hunt, finding a total of 440 phantom congressional districts receiving nearly $6.4 billion to “create or save” just under 30,000 jobs – almost $225,000 per job. The “99th” District of North Dakota, a state which has only one congressional district, received more than $2 million.
    Mississippi’s 5th District and Oklahoma’s 6th District, and Pennsylvania’s 21st District each received $1 million. But none of them exist. All three were eliminated as a result of the 2000 census. Money also went to 35 congressional districts in Washington, DC and the four American territories, all of which have no congressional districts.
    Then it got worse. Not only did the site almost double the size of Congress with its phantom districts, further examination showed money also going to zip codes that don’t exist. The site reported that $373,874 went to New Mexico zip code 97052 – but no jobs were created. $36,218 was credited for creating five jobs in zip code 87258. $100,000 went into zip code 86705 – but no jobs were created. None of these zip codes exist.
    Again, the nationwide search showed the same results. West Virginia – $28 million in non-existent zip codes; Nebraska – millions more in non-existent zips; Washington state – more stimulus funds in non-existent zip codes; Virginia – $9.5 million in phantom zip codes; Colorado – millions more; Oklahoma – $11.5 million – phantom zips.
    And the excuse from the Obama Administration? Clerical error. Ed Pound, director of communications for the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board blamed the problem on an oversight by the fund recipients. He said it appeared that some of those filling out the reports just didn’t know their congressional districts (or zip codes apparently), and therefore listed an inaccurate number.
    But the Administration is quick on its feet and in its transparency. The problem has been solved. All of the reports from non-existent Congressional districts and zip codes have been removed and re-listed under “unassigned congressional districts.” No one, of course, has bothered to investigate where the money actually went.

    Left-Wing Icon: America Is Still Headed Towards Fascism Under Obama
    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Thursday, April 1, 2010
    When left-wing icon Naomi Wolf warned that America was heading towards fascism under George W. Bush, characterized by illegal surveillance, arbitrary detention of suspects, and paramilitary martial law, she was lauded, but when she continued to issue the same warning as a result of Obama’s failure to reverse any of those policies, many on the left abandoned support for her.
    However, as Wolf’s recent interview with leftist website Alternet makes plain, liberals may finally be starting to understand that both political parties in Washington are part of the problem, not the solution.

    One is a registered Democrat, and the party affiliations of the rest could not be determined.
    Jacob J. Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio, voted as a Democrat in the 2004 and 2008 primary elections, and in 10 other elections since 2000. Voters’ political affiliations in Ohio are determined by which party’s ballot they request during even-year primary elections.
    Wow.
    So I’m assuming we’re going to get handwringing in the meda and from the left over the violent, nutcase terrorists in their midst that are threatening to kill us all because they hate the Tea Partiers, right?
    RIGHT? Keith Olbermann? Chris Matthews? DNC? DSCC? Democrats?

    sdee,
    I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree. Waiting 4-6 years for the HCR bill to be adjudicated by SCOTUS doesn’t fix any of the other problems. A new Pres. or Congress won’t fix the problems, IMO. I think we need to fix the Federal government sooner, not later. Don’t want to wait for Cap & Trade, Card Check, the treaties with the UN to cede our freedoms to an international court, or the national sales or VAT tax. You are more patient and hopeful than I.

    Listened to Rush today and he mentione the video of Hank Johnson and the flipping island statement. Rush said Johnson is a verys ick man. Something to do with HpC and it is affecting his brain. Said he was close to death. If this is true I feel very sorry for him and apologize for dissing him as dumb.
    However, why is Pelosi allowing a man who has impaired brain function to be on important commitees and voting for important legislation such as HC if he has trouble reasoning etc? Let him work on easy things while he can. Does anyone think HE read the bill??? How awful to use a sick man for political reasons and votes. They have no souls at all. Nothing is right or wrong unless it is to their benefit and to gain them power. Yikes.

    The End Game
    Mark Steyn is one of the few American writers to see the stakes in the game currently being played out in U.S. government.
    The Obama/Democratic Socialists/Progressive Caucus/Communist Party, Institute for Policy Studies agenda, if allowed to play out, will not only bankrupt the United States, it will gravely imperil Western Civilization and individual liberty in every corner of the globe.
    Will Russia, China, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, North Korea and the more than half of the world under socialist and or militant Islamic control sit on their backside while the US economy and military might sinks into a “black hole”?
    The Soviet Union’s biggest regret was not acting more aggressively when the US was mired in the Great Depression of the 1930s.
    America’s numerous enemies will not make the same mistake twice.
    Here’s how Mark Steyn puts it;
    If Barack Obama does nothing else in his term in office, this will make him one of the most consequential presidents in history. It’s a huge transformative event in Americans’ view of themselves and of the role of government.

    Unreal. Lib Hate Groups Demand Apology From RNC(?) For Fabricated Hate at Tea Party Rallies
    Thursday, April 1, 2010, 6:22 AM
    Jim Hoft
    When MoveOn.org members are not biting off fingers at Tea Party protests, the crackpots are out bashing Republicans, tea party protesters and anyone elso who stands in the way of their socialist utopia. Today they’re demanding that the Republican National Committee(?) apologize for fabricated tea party hate stories.
    Of course, Moveon.org is the same hate group that slandered General Petraeus and created Bush-Hitler ads during the 2004 election.
    Now this hate group wants the RNC to apologize for bogus hate stories.
    Unreal.
    The Politico reported:
    Three liberal groups will drop off a petition at the Republican National Committee’s headquarters Thursday, urging conservative leaders to “take responsibility” for threats and incidents of vandalism against Democrats.
    The event is being organized by the Brave New Foundation, MoveOn.org, CREDO and Color of Change.

    Hmmmm best beware this disease that seems to have infected America. Just got this in an email(humorous):
    A CDC warning…..
    Very important information has just been made public that I think is something you should all be aware of: Gonorrhea Lectim. The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease.
    The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It’s pronounced “Gonna re-elect ‘im.” The disease is contracted through dangerous and high-risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it in 2008, but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.
    It’s sad because it is so easily cured with a new procedure just coming on the market called Vo-tem-out! You take the first dose/step in 2010 and the second dosage in 2012, and simply don’t engage in such behavior again, otherwise it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.
    Several states are already on top of this like Virginia, New Jersey, and now Massachusetts, with many more seeing the writing on the wall. Please pass this important message on to all those bright folk you really care about.

    **********************************************
    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    ——————————
    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. >From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    ——————————
    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
    ——————————
    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
    ——————————
    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    —- ————- ————-
    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    ——————————
    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    —————————–
    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
    ——————————
    You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
    Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!
    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
    With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ’subjects’.
    During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
    If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun-control message to all of your fri ends.
    The purpose of fighting is to win.
    There is no possible victory in defense.
    The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either.
    The final weapon is the brain.
    All else is supplemental.
    SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
    SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
    SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

    Why I Carry a Gun
    My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.’
    I don’t carry a gun to kill people.
    I carry a gun to keep from being killed.
    I don’t carry a gun to scare people.
    I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.
    I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid.
    I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world..
    I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil.
    I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.
    I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government.
    I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government..
    I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry.
    I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
    I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
    I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
    I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy.
    I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
    I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
    I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
    I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
    I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
    I don’t carry a gun because I love it.
    I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.
    Police protection is an oxymoron.
    Free citizens must protect themselves.
    Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

    I gotta tell you, one of the biggest hits at the Tea Party event was this kid – goes by the name Polatik.
    He explained that 8 months ago he was living off the government in Waco, TX and happened upon a Tea Party event. He expected to be shunned or pushed away because you all know we’re racists (he’s Hispanic). Instead he found himself welcomed in, and heard things he’d never heard before. He started studying the Constitution, and now he does rap songs about freedom and liberty, the Constitution, and America.
    As someone who personally detests rap ‘music’, I had my doubts. But once you hear his songs, and listen to the words, this guy will turn around a lot of the brainwashed youth of today.
    The crowd gave him the biggest cheer of the afternoon

    “Continue to execute all the express provisions of our National Constitution, and the Union will endure forever, it being impossible to destroy it except by some action not provided for in the instrument itself…”
    “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it. I can not be ignorant of the fact that many worthy and patriotic citizens are desirous to have the National Constitution amended. While I make no recommendation of amendments, I fully recognize the rightful authority of the people over the whole subject, to be exercised in either of the modes prescribed in the instrument itself; and I should, under existing circumstances, favor rather than oppose a fair opportunity being afforded the people to act upon it. I will venture to add that to me the convention mode seems preferable, in that it allows amendments to originate with the people themselves, instead of only permitting them to take or reject propositions originated by others, not especially chosen for the purpose, and which might not be precisely such as they would wish to either accept of refuse.”

    It’s a decree for a “One World Government” and it doesn’t surprise me that so many states introduced similar language…The globalist have been pushing this utopian pipe dream since before we were born.
    It’s very misguided due to the fact that a One World Government can only lead to one thing; Totalitarianism = Life without personal freedom = enslavement.
    People would be nothing more than “worker bees” tasked to do nothing except keep the hive (government) healthy….Any bee that was not pulling his weight according to the queen bee (governmental panel) would qualify as a useless eater and be cast out / exterminated.

    Anarchists Plan War On April 15th Tea Parties
    Wednesday, March 31, 2010, 5:38 PM
    Jim Hoft
    WARNING: Be on the lookout–
    Bring your cameras.
    Violent anarchists are planning on infilitrating and sabotaging the Tea Party Protests on April 15th.
    The Jawa Report posted this call to arms from the violent anarchists at Infoshop today:
    Crash the tea parties!
    On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers. If the tea party movement continues to grow in size and strength there is a big chance they will dominate this country in the near future. If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc. The tea party movement will say these programs must be gotten rid of because hard-working taxpayers cannot afford to pay for these things especially when the economy is in a depression. There are three options we have with the tea party movement:
    1. Organize counter-protests against the tea party demonstrations, same time, same place. This is probably the best option. We need to get in the streets on April 15th and show the tea party movement that there are lots of people out there who oppose their agenda.

    Election Theft Underway in Wisconsin

    Election Theft Underway in Wisconsin
    By Thomas Lifson
    More evidence the Obama Democrats are playing by Chicago rules, and rapidly altering the nature of our political regime. Nancy Pelosi’s strong arm legislative tactics have metastasized to the state level in Wisconsin.
    According to a Republican Wisconsin state senator, Democrats there plan to change the election rules in November with inadequate scrutiny. In other words, a stealth attack on the integrity of the electoral process. Like ObamaCare, this is a change-the-game legislative proposal that could not withstand scrutiny.
    Wisconsin Senator Glenn Grothman alerts us that Democrats are trying to push a radical 72-page bill less than 16 hours after its hearing. He writes:
    Senate Bill 640 [is] a bill which radically changes Wisconsin election law going into this year’s election. The 72-page bill was not even introduced until March 23.
    Senate Bill 640 makes many changes to Wisconsin election law including the following:
    •1) The bill allows municipalities to set up satellite absentee ballot stations for early voting. These stations apparently could be done in college dorms, outside of bars, or other inappropriate locals.
    •2) The current open government practice of allowing any citizen to challenge individual ballots would end as monitoring of elections of statewide or national significance would be restricted to people who live within that polling district.
    •3) Permanent absentee ballot status would be established in which ballots would be sent to people who historically do not vote in low-turnout elections. Currently, permanent absentee ballot status is restricted to people who are confined because of age, physical illness, infirmity, or disabled infinitely making them unable to get to the polls.
    •4) University IDs could be offered as proof of residence for registration and voting.
    •5) The increased cost of processing and mailing out the additional absentee ballots is an unfunded mandate that local municipalities will not be able to absorb.
    •6) Local municipalities will be forced to hire speakers of a foreign language if at least 5% of the adults in their district are not English proficient.
    •7) The bill proposes to set up a statewide database of voters that the authors said they would hope to link up to a national database.
    “This is a shocking power grab some extremist Democrats are trying to change our laws so that more unqualified voters are able to vote and so that we are not able to determine whether or not voting fraud in fact took place,” said Grothman. “That is clearly the motivation behind trying to have a much larger number of permanent absentee voters as well as preventing an individual outside a polling place to object to inappropriate voting.”
    “Ironically, the voting change that most Wisconsin citizens request, Voter ID, is about the only thing not included in this far-reaching bill that is being fast-tracked through the State Legislature.”
    The far left has taken over the Democratic Party, and is aggressive changing the rules so as to entrench itself in power, regardless of the will of the people. The same Alinskyite mentality that rammed through ObamaCare. Rules are what you make the other guy live up to. (“We make ‘em up as we go along.”)
    Now, with the same anti-transparency approach used on ObamaCare, Wisconsin Democrats plan to close down scrutiny while they tailor election practices to benefit themselves.
    Chicago rules ruthlessness coupled to a far left structural agenda. Precisely the brew that Saul Alinsky created when he began his work with community organizing on Chicago’s South Side and took up residence in Hyde Park.
    Our democratic process is being degraded, moving in a distinctly unpleasant direction: a ruling party rigging elections, paying off its allied groups, practicing predatory governance with regard to the business class, which it regards as pariahs. A compliant media supplies propaganda extolling the leader, and framing the news to portray the governing class in the best light. Workers are kept in line with unions.
    Are there any honest Democrats out there willing to denounce this hijacking of the electoral process? Those who claim to be thoughtful liberals ought to take a look at the corruption machines being designed in Wisconsin.
    Tyranny creeps in one step at a time.

    CNN Smears Completely Unconnected Group As Tea Party Terrorists
    by DFX March 30, 2010 13:44
    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Tuesday, March 30, 2010
    During a report on the indictment against members of the Hutaree organization raided by federal authorities this past weekend, CNN displayed images from the Michigan Militia website, a completely unconnected group, and implied that they shared the cop-killing agenda of the Hutaree, in a clear attempt to smear the national Tea Party movement as a terrorist fringe.
    Betraying their callous appetite for grist with which to silence their political opposition, establishment media talking heads and self-proclaimed progressives and liberals have zealously pounced upon the Hutaree raid to advance their anti-free speech agenda and smear opponents of Obamacare or big government as extremists and even terrorists who want to kill cops.
    This despite the fact that the Hutaree were shunned by other militia and patriot groups precisely because of their advocacy for violence, beliefs that characterized the group as a “low hanging fruit” and easy targets for a federal raid and a subsequent organized media demonization campaign against anyone who dissents against the continued financial raping or any aspect of big government tyranny.
    As we have documented, members of the Hutaree concerned themselves with macabre obsessions such as films about killing children and were clearly mentally ill. By tying this in with political paranoia about big government taking over, the group’s behavior lent itself perfectly to media demonization campaigns, an opportunity gleefully seized by the establishment back in October 2008 after one Hutaree member appeared in a You Tube video dressed in camouflage, waving around a machine gun and speaking with a sinister altered voice.
    Despite the fact that other patriot groups went to great lengths to ostracize themselves from the Hutaree as a result of this behavior, the media has exploited the raids to imply that every militia and Tea Party group shares their violent agenda.
    During a report on the raids and subsequent indictment of the group, CNN attempted to portray the Michigan Militia and the Hutaree as one and the same, despite the fact that the Michigan Militia posted a message on their official website immediately after the raids making it clear that they had no affiliation with the Hutaree, had not been raided, and in fact as subsequent reports revealed, had refused to help the Hutaree when asked because of their concerns over the Hutaree’s previous reckless behavior.
    The CNN report featured a long lingering shot of a web page advertising an upcoming Tea Party event while the correspondent discussed charges of killing police officers using explosives.
    “We’re looking at the website right now,” states the anchor, as the shot zooms in on the page of the Michigan Militia, which periodically changes to the official Hutaree website. The Michigan Militia website gets more screen time than the Hutaree website, despite the fact that the two groups are completely separate and even hostile to each other.
    While the Hutaree allegedly planned to abduct and kill police officers as well as bombing their funerals, the Michigan Militia openly condemns “attacks or threats of any sort directed against our elected representatives or law enforcement officers.”
    The Tea Party advertisement that CNN erroneously implied was on the Hutaree website, promotes a family picnic event at a lake recreation area as well as a shooting competition at a privately owned shooting range. The ad clearly states that open carry does not apply at the range and that “absolutely no alcohol, illegal drugs or illegal weapons” should be brought to the event.
    Despite the obvious fact that the advertisement was for a completely lawful event organized by a group that has nothing to do with the Hutaree at all, CNN used the image to openly imply that the alleged cop-killing Hutaree members were part of the same organization, demonizing the second amendment and the Tea Party movement all in one fell swoop.

    We already have all the forces in place to dismantle the Constitution. It is happening before your eyes. They’ve taken over housing, banking, manufacturing, education, transportation, energy production & the health care industry. I’ve seen speculation on this blog about the possibility of losing our right to vote, and fear the vote counters will make certain the results of upcoming elections. If some of you are worried about that, what do you think our chances of being able to call a Constitutional Convention would be at that point in time? The Constitution has been amended in the past. Through that process we have lost some rights, and gained some.
    I think it’s interesting you posted the article about the Fabian Socialists. We’re at the proverbial “fork in the road”. If we do nothing we will certainly continue on the path to socialism and the eventual decline of the greatest economic and military power on earth. At some point in the future will your children or grandchildren then face the same predictable outcome…a bloody attempt to overthrow their oppressors. Our founders had to fight a war against the most mighty military machine in the world to gain their freedom. We have the opportunity to use a legal device to fight our battle with the forces of socialism, and yet many fear it. Why? The overthrow of the Constitution is a fait accompli if we do nothing. (Please don’t say the elections in Nov. will make a difference, because they won’t. They will just make you feel like they did.) Just like the Founders we have the chance to declare ourselves free of an oppresive government. They were willing to spill their blood on the battlefields. There was no certainty of victory. Our odds are no different than the Founders. Win or lose, they made a stand. If this is not our time to make a stand, when is?
    *****************************
    Fernley, I copied your post over because I am still not convinced that the SC AG’s proposal to call a a Constitutional Convention won’t seriously backfire.
    I stand by you with passion on this. I believe that our countries fate is now in our hands.
    Caveat – I’ve far more opinion than any real knowledge of Constitutional law however.
    I start with the belief that our Constitution is not the problem. The problem is that it and the law of the land are ignored. There is no rule of law in either the executive and legislative branches, and anyone in a position to prosecute has been bribed, removed, threatened or intimidated. It is also likely most federal judges including some of the Supreme are corrupt or been threatened as well. So all checks and balance are null.
    So, if we live under a corrupt lawless regime I cannot see how replacing old law with new law will make any difference unless we first remove or cripple that regime. Otherwise isn’t it likely that the regime would subvert a Constitutional Convention and ensure it produces a constitution they can change at will?
    I thought the goal of convening a Continental Congress was the appropriate remedy to defend the Constitution and hold the lawless accountable, not a Constitutional Convention.

    Obama takes care in sizing up ‘tea party’ movement
    By JENNIFER LOVEN AP White House Correspondent The Associated Press
    Tuesday, March 30, 2010 6:32 PM EDT
    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama stepped carefully when talking for the first time about the conservative tea party movement, acknowledging it has legitimate concerns about federal reach and spending, but he contended the core of the loose anti-government network is “on the fringe.”
    The latest political phenomenon, barely a year old, has leaders on both sides of the political spectrum puzzled.
    Republicans want to co-opt the passion — and votes — of tea party disciples to help them oust Democrats from congressional control in the fall midterm elections, without losing other voters in the process. As for Democrats, they have focused mainly on trying to marginalize and ignore them. For instance, several Democratic officials say there’s no apparent strategy yet at the White House for combatting the network’s growing influence.

    Got this in an email and found it pretty interesting. Not sure if it’s all true but it sure was a breath of fresh air. Even if you don’t like Truman it’s fun to read. Another good reflection on the 50’s.
    “Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.
    The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.
    When he retired from office in 1952, his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year..
    After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.
    When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.”
    Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.”
    As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.
    Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale. (sic. Illinois )
    Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!
    I say dig him up and clone him!! “

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is the most despicable part of this whole mess. For the people in the military, this is LIFE and DEATH.
    I’m concerned however that he is asking for production of the original birth certificate (to prove he was born on US soil) in order to satisfy his constitutional requirement. Except that he’s missing the “who’s your daddy?” part of the equation!
    And that he refers to obama as Mr. President. If he were convinced he isn’t eligible, why would he not refer to him as Mr. obama instead?
    I resent that I have been turned into such a skeptical and distrusting person now, but it almost makes me wonder if this is a set up to the big reveal?

    The Shock of Barack
    by DFX March 31, 2010 00:42
    From Blogsphere:
    Does “Pop” in Obama’s poem (see this article) mean “Dad” .. as in that context? What else could it mean? “Pop takes another shot ..”? If Obama was abused by FM Davis .. he would have to have some serious psychological problems ..

    The Shock of Barack
    By Robin of Berkeley
    I’ve been feeling funky since Black Sunday, the day of the health care debacle. As a therapist, I’m usually able to identity my feelings. But this one had left me stumped.
    I went through the usual laundry list of emotions: Am I depressed? (A little, but that’s not it.) Worried, scared? (Yes, but who isn’t?) Angry (Very, but that’s still not what’s bugging me.)
    It took a conversation with a conservative friend, Nancy, for me to pinpoint the feeling. Nancy told me that a Jewish co-worker, a staunch Obama supporter, was feeling “shell shocked” by Obama’s vilifying Israel.
    Bingo. That’s what it is: stunned, shell shocked, traumatized.
    But it’s not PTSD — post traumatic stress disorder — because then Obama would be ancient history. It’s trauma happening right here, right now, at lightning speed.
    Trauma means witnessing something that humans are not designed to see, a horror that is more than the self can absorb. The brutality of war, a gruesome crime scene, the sudden death of a loved one. Or the evil that unfolds through unchecked power yielded by megalomaniacs.
    For me, trauma was that cloudless November day, years ago, when I exited an Oakland restaurant at noon and soon thereafter, lay prone on the concrete, bloody and broken.
    Just moments before, I had looked into the eyes of a man who didn’t know that I was human, or who knew but didn’t care. I saw something sinister in him, but ignored my gut. I was still steeped in liberal political correctness and didn’t want to appear racially insensitive.
    When I see what Obama is doing to this country, how he is treating its citizens, I’m reminded of the man who mugged me. I think that both are constitutionally incapable of seeing our humanity. And each day that Obama is in office, he communicates this same deadly message to the masses — that opponents are not human.
    This would explain the burgeoning of hate and even violence towards those who deign to disagree. And why Tea Party members and conservatives are being targeted, as well as entire countries like Israel.
    And this would illuminate why Obama is unfazed while the economy crashes. And why he cavalierly demonizes Israel, putting millions of Israelis at risk. And it explains why Obama mocks conservatives who are legitimately worried about this administration’s violating fundamental rights.
    But how could Obama see us? Did anyone in his childhood ever see him?
    Did little Barry’s needs factor into his mother’s decision to shlep him to Indonesia to live with her and her alcoholic second husband? And how much maternal love was on display when she dragged him back home to Hawaii and then abandoned him for good?
    Did Obama’s humanity matter to Grandpa Stanley and Frank Marshall Davis when they sat around drinking, talking trash talk about women, and telling dirty jokes to the discomfited little Barry?
    What was Stanley thinking giving Barry over to Davis, an alleged pedophile and Communist, for mentoring? And did Davis do the most unspeakable act of violation and dehumanization to Barry as the teenage Obama hints at in the poem, “Pop”?
    Pop takes another shot, neat,
    Points out the same amber
    Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine, and
    Makes me smell his smell, coming
    From me; he switches channels, recites an old poem. . .
    Asks for a hug, as I shrink. . .
    For someone to survive a difficult childhood intact, he needs at least one person to see his humanity. It’s best if the person is a close relative, but a child can endure with the help of someone else. An attentive coach, counselor, neighbor, or teacher can work wonders.
    Who mirrored Obama’s humanity back to him? Who looked into the young Barry’s eyes and reflected back the man he was meant to be? Who honored and cherished the human being inside?
    I’ll tell you who — no one. His family groomed him and sculpted him. They projected onto him who they wanted him to be. In later years, other egotistical father figures, like Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers, scripted his Messiah-like role.
    But was there someone who loved and honored Obama for who he was? No.
    And that’s why Obama cannot see you or me. He cannot respond to the pain and suffering he is inflicting. He may, in fact, derive satisfaction by the act of revenge.
    Years ago, I came face to face with a man who also didn’t know that I existed. He had no qualms about injuring me and leaving me lying wounded in the middle of the street.
    I wasn’t a person to him. I was nothing. This is where all evil begins: the dehumanizing of another.
    From what I have seen this last year, Obama shows no ability to walk in another person’s shoes. This would require empathy and sensitivity, traits that are nowhere to be found.
    Frankly, every time I see Obama, I catch a glimpse of the man who mugged me.
    And that, to me, is the true danger and horror and shock of Barack.

    N.Y. Times columnist: Death panels will save ‘a lot of money’
    Paul Krugman tells ‘Roundtable’ economists agree it’s ‘going to be major’
    ——————————————————————————–

    Left-leaning economic commentator Paul Krugman says the so-called “death panels” established by President Obama’s trillion-dollar nationalized health-care plan will end up saving “a lot of money” for the government.
    The comments from Krugman, who writes on the New York Times blogs, came during a discussion of “Obamacare” about the time it was adopted by Congress.
    He was appearing on ABC’s “Roundtable.”
    “People on the right, they’re simultaneously screaming, ‘They’re going to send all the old people to death panels,’ and ‘It’s not going to save any money,’” he said.
    Another panelist interjected, “Death panels would save money,” to which Krugman responded:
    The advisory panel which has the ability to make more or less binding judgments on saying this particular expensive treatment actually doesn’t do any good medically and so we are not going to pay for it. That is actually going to save quite a lot of money. We don’t know how much yet. The CBO gives it very little credit but, but most, most of the health care economists I talk to think that’s going be a really, uh a really major cost saving.
    The video has been posted on the Conservatives4Palin website, and it was Palin who was among the first to denounce the “death panel” concept in the government-run health care.
    That’s the idea that appointed government officials who under the plan will have access to medical records will determine if a treatment will be provided to a needy patient or not. Theoretically, that could be a death sentence for a patient denied a treatment.
    In the United Kingdom and other nations where such government procedures already are in place, the survival rates for such afflictions as breast cancer or prostate cancer are lower than in the United States, and critics say it is because of the treatments that are denied patients.

    ‘Right-wing white brothers’ may ‘attempt to kill’ Obama
    President’s extremist pal calls for protection, rips America in ‘decline’

    Speaking at a televised roundtable alongside Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan, a personal friend and recent adviser to President Obama decried “right-wing white brothers” who are attacking Obama and who “could even attempt to kill him.”
    Cornel West, an extremist race-relations instructor at Princeton, was speaking last Saturday at the “We Count! The Black Agenda is the American Agenda” conference in Chicago organized by talk show host Tavis Smiley. The event was broadcast on CSPAN.
    Stated West, “There are a number of highly misguided right-wing white brothers and sisters who are engaged in assault and attack and could even attempt to kill him (Obama). So we have to protect our brother. There’s no doubt about that. And we have to keep track of those forces that will lie and degrade. … He is our brother. He needs to be protected.”
    Calling Farrakhan “my dear brother,” West went on to claim, “America is an empire in relative decline because of corporate greed, military overstretch, war in Afghanistan, war in Iraq, drones in Pakistan and still siding with right-wing forces in Latin America.”
    Your lawmakers are out of control. Send Congress copies of the Constitution today!
    West made similar remarks when he introduced Obama on stage at a 2007 Harlem fundraiser attended by about 1,500 people that served as Obama’s first foray into Harlem after announcing his Democratic presidential candidacy.
    At the time, Obama took the stage calling West a “genius.”
    WND reported West introduced Obama on stage at the fundraiser after first railing against the “racist” criminal-justice system of the “American empire.”
    A scan of YouTube clips found West (link:) introducing Obama at the fundraiser while stating the “American empire is in such a deep crisis” and slamming the “racist criminal-justice system” and “disgraceful schools in our city.”
    “He is my brother and my companion and comrade,” said West of Obama.
    WND found a video that shows Obama taking the stage just after West’s introduction, expressing his gratitude to West, calling him “not only a genius, a public intellectual, a preacher, an oracle … he’s also a loving person.”
    Obama asked the audience for a round of applause for West.

    Posters: Destroy mosque, build 3rd Temple now!
    Brazen demands on Jerusalem buses deliver in-your-face message

    Jewish activists in Jerusalem are using buses to deliver an in-your-face message to Muslims by calling for the immediate destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock on the city’s disputed Temple Mount.
    The bulldozing of the Muslim holy sites, say leaders of Our Land of Israel, will pave the way for construction of the Third (Jewish) Temple.
    “The Arabs and President Obama know that the Temple will be built on the Temple Mount,” said Rabbi Shalom Dov Volpo, the group’s founder, “instead of the temporary buildings that are there today.”
    According to the Jerusalem Post, 200 buses now carry posters picturing the Third Temple sitting atop the mount alone – with no Muslim buildings in sight – along with the words, “May the Bais Hamikdosh [Holy Temple] be rebuilt speedily and within our days.”
    Adding fuel to the fire, the campaign’s organizers told the Post they’ve targeted buses with routes through predominately Arab neighborhoods in east Jerusalem.
    “We’re representing the truth, in front of everyone, and saying out loud what every Jew believes,” said Our Land of Israel activist Baruch Marzel, “that the Third Temple needs to be built immediately on the Temple Mount and that the mosque should not be there.”

    It looks like he is opening up the entire east coast and Alaska.
    Normally I would be cheering this but this sounds like opening volley in his “offensive”
    My guess is that, because revenue from offshore goes to the state, Obama has bought off the votes he needs for cap and trade.
    He has to have cap and trade to seal the socialist agenda. Cap and trade, like VAT is a deep systemic tax on all goods, services and activities. With this he also get s a shot at nationalizing oil and gas.

    Good morning to all. Very nice weather today here in WNY. Hope anyone living east of me has seen the last of the rain and flooding. Pretty bad in NE I know.
    This a bit of a follow-up trackback to the hysteria surrounding the swine flu issues of last year. Who can say this is a surprise summary? From an article referenced fromDer Spiegel here’s an excerpt:
    “The article in Germany’s foremost investigative magazine is long and rather exhaustive in its reconstruction of events, and the following excerpt clearly spells out what is becoming public knowledge, and what may serve as a guide to real evidence when a multitude of individuals and nations will soon take the companies and individuals to court:
    “The pharmaceutical industry did not influence any of our decisions,” says Fukuda. But in mid-May, about three weeks before the swine flu was declared a pandemic, 30 senior representatives of pharmaceutical companies met with WHO Director-General Chan and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon at WHO headquarters. The official reason for the meeting was to discuss ways to ensure that developing countries would be provided with pandemic vaccine. But at this point in time the vaccine industry was mainly interested in one question: the decision to declare phase 6.
    Everything hung on this decision. At stake was nothing less than a move to supply large segments of the world’s population with flu vaccine. Phase 6 acted as a switch that would allow bells on the industry’s cash registers to ring, risk-free. That’s because many pandemic vaccine contracts had already been signed. Germany, for example, signed an agreement with the British firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in 2007 to buy its pandemic vaccine — as soon as phase 6 was declared. This agreement could explain why Professor Roy Anderson, one key scientific advisor to the British government, declared the swine flu a pandemic on May 1. What he neglected to say was that GSK was paying him an annual salary of more than €130,000 ($177,000).
    This answers some of the questions and emerging suspicions earlier reported by Digital Journal, in several articles that can be found here, here and here. Following the various leads and leaks now provided to the public, and the public prosecutors in various countries, other investigations by other media will surely follow soon.
    Another interesting fact is, for example, that certain pharmaceutical companies had made deals and signed agreements with governments already in 2007, way before the swine flu broke out, contracts that stipulated that when and if a pandemic would be declared, those government would become multi-million buyers of the respective vaccines.
    The Spiegel article ends by discussing the brave example of the Polish health minister, the 53-year-old physician Ewa Kopacz who was one of the few politicians who apparently saw through the scam and declined to be part of it. Other political leaders, left, right or middle, should have followed her lead. The article says:
    When she stepped up to the podium in the Polish parliament, the Sejm, during its vaccine debate, she wore a bright-red dress — her combat gear. “As a doctor, my first obligation is to harm no one,” she said. For this reason, she added, Poland was not going to follow in the rest of Europe’s footsteps. “We will not purchase any vaccine against the swine flu,” Kopacz told the Sejm.
    Politicians grumbled, but the health minister stood her ground. “Is it my duty to sign agreements that are in the interest of Poles, or in the interest of the pharmaceutical companies?” she asked.
    Today, Europe can admire her steadfastness. About 170 people died of the swine flu in Poland, a much lower number than the annual death toll attributable to the seasonal flu. ”
    The ethics of governments tied to money from corporations like these pharma thieves is astounding. We are the guinea pigs caught in the middle of the money grab. Who wants to bet this new HC reform carries numerous traps just like this for all of us forced to pay for it all.

    Press Release
    Boehner: Obama Administration’s Decision Keeps Vast Majority of America’s Offshore Energy Resources Off Limits
    GOP Leader: “Keeping the Pacific Coast and Alaska, as well as the most promising resources off the Gulf of Mexico, under lock and key makes no sense at a time when gasoline prices are rising and Americans are asking ‘Where are the jobs?’”
    House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today criticized the Obama Administration for refusing to listen to the American people and keeping the vast majority of America’s offshore energy resources off limits at a time when Americans want an “all of the above” strategy for promoting American energy production and creating American jobs:
    “The Obama Administration continues to defy the will of the American people who strongly supported the bipartisan decision of Congress in 2008 to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling not just off the East Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico, but off the Pacific Coast and Alaskan shores as well. Opening up areas off the Virginia coast to offshore production is a positive step, but keeping the Pacific Coast and Alaska, as well as the most promising resources off the Gulf of Mexico, under lock and key makes no sense at a time when gasoline prices are rising and Americans are asking ‘Where are the jobs?’
    “It’s long past time for this Administration to stop delaying American energy production off all our shores and start listening to the American people who want an “all of the above” strategy to produce more American energy and create more jobs. Republicans are listening to the American people and have proposed a better solution – the American Energy Act – which will lower gas prices, increase American energy production, promote new clean and renewable sources of energy, and encourage greater efficiency and conservation.
    “At the same time the White House makes today’s announcement, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is plotting a new massive job-killer that the American people can’t afford: a cascade of new EPA regulations that will punish every American who dares to flip on a light switch, drive a car, or buy an American product. Americans simply don’t want this backdoor national energy tax that will drive up energy and manufacturing costs and destroy jobs in our states and local communities.”

    Lovelock: ‘We can’t save the planet’
    Professor James Lovelock, the scientist who developed Gaia theory, has said it is too late to try and save the planet.
    The man who achieved global fame for his theory that the whole earth is a single organism now believes that we can only hope that the earth will take care of itself in the face of completely unpredictable climate change.
    Interviewed by Today presenter John Humphrys, videos of which you can see below, he said that while the earth’s future was utterly uncertain, mankind was not aware it had “pulled the trigger” on global warming as it built its civilizations.
    ‘We’re not really guilty. We didn’t deliberately set out to heat the world’
    What is more, he predicts, the earth’s climate will not conveniently comply with the models of modern climate scientists.
    As the record winter cold testifies, he says, global temperatures move in “jerks and jumps”, and we cannot confidently predict what the future holds.
    ‘The world doesn’t change its climate conveniently’
    Prof Lovelock does not pull his punches on the politicians and scientists who are set to gain from the idea that we can predict climate change and save the planet ourselves.
    Scientists, he says, have moved from investigating nature as a vocation, to being caught in a career path where it makes sense to “fudge the data”.
    ‘Science has changed in our lifetime’
    And while renewable energy technology may make good business sense, he says, it is not based on “good practical engineering”.
    Renewable technology ‘doesn’t really work’
    At the age of 90, Prof Lovelock is resigned to his own fate and the fate of the planet. Whether the planet saves itself or not, he argues, all we can do is to “enjoy life while you can”.
    Trying to save the planet ‘is a lot of nonsense’

    Are you suggesting a coup of some type is the only answer?
    ************
    I don’t know how you could even ask that question when all I’ve been talking about a Constitutional Convention. A legal process.
    Two hundred and twenty years ago our country was set on a path of never-ending debt by Alexander Hamilton and the formation of The Bank of the United States. The only motive: greed. What’s changed? Every politician who voted for our new Health Care bill had some skin in the game.
    You keep on saying we have a Constitution. I agree. There’s a document in the National Archives. It represents a blueprint of what our government should be. It was created in part to strengthen the Federal government over states’ rights in an effort to pay off the debts of the Revolutionary War. How many rights do the states have now? How many rights do you have now? You can never have alloidial title to your land. (Except for Troy in Texas.) Even when you’ve paid off the mortgage you must still pay taxes (rent) to a government agency. And if you think you “own” your property, don’t pay those pesky rents. Viola! Your land will be seized and sold to pay your rents. Not even your car is ever yours. If you want to drive it you must pay taxes on it, even if it’s 50 years old.
    It wasn’t always that way sdee. We have strayed so far from the original intent of the formation of this nation and the ideals reflected by the Charters of Freedom that we no longer have a Constitution which works for the best interests of “We the People”. It has been buried under millions of pages of legislation, written by thousands of lawmakers, often with selfish intent. All I want to do is sweep away away he garbage that’s been heaped upon the Constitution and bring it out into the sunlight again. Legally. What other remedy do we have? A Continental Congress has already been held. Has anything changed? http://drkatesview.wordpress.com/continental-congress-2009/
    The YouTube I posted earlier highlights what is happening. Since when is it “constitutional” for the federal government to seize private businesses and “wipe out shareholder equity”? This flies in the face of everything our country should be. We’re on a runaway train to national political hell. I want to get off the train.

    I believe that it absolutely must be the final action, once all else has failed…I’m a realist and I believe that all else will fail and has been failing.
