My, how things have changed in just 7 years. That cartoon needs updating. I can see Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Kennedy, Schumer, Durbin, Wright, ACORN, et. al. placing dynamite sticks in the Liberty Bell’s crack intending to blow it to smithereens.

ROFL at your tagline.
Oath Keepers are not “secret” or in hiding.
Neda, Is She Iran’s Joan of Arc?
Neda Has Become a Symbol and Martyr for the Iranian Opposition http://abcnews.go.com/International/story?id=7897043&page=1
It fits: the present situation is much more serious than the '90s.
We must never forget, and we must teach everyone, this truism:
The only reason that anyone would seek to disarm the citizenry is if they intend to do something to them that they wouldn’t allow if they had the means to resist.
Is that “fat lady” about to sing?
Don't know about that, but a crack is beginning to show.
Not just yet.
"Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may."
Yeah, it could be sooner, but there has to be a trigger event, like this election in Iran.
2010 could be a trigger event, if ACORN or the Black Panthers engage in voter intimidation and fraud again.
“If police fired randomly into a crowd in the US, there would be return fire”. Depends on where it happens. If it is in a lib run “gun free zone”, like most coastal cities, it would be ugly.
Iran has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American service men and women. If Zero had any balls we’d be airdropping thousands of these over Tehran and other Iranian cities:
Then we’d see how the Revolutionary Guard thugs like dealing with protesters who have a sting of their own. Maybe more of them would then turn.
Because standing next to Ahmadinnerjacket, Obama looks sane and stately.
"He's dead, Jim"
“American Patriots need to watch this play out.
It could happen this way in 3 years.”
Yes, I keep thinking the same thing. How naive we have been to take our freedoms for granted...
Lets guess, Zero was raised a Muslim; Zero hides his Birth Certificate; Zero hides all associations of the past; Zero denies close friendship with Unrepentant terrorist William Ayers who bombed the Pentagon and wrote Zero’s alleged “MEMOIRS!” which required extremely close relationship; Zero gives huge speech to Muslims Not from U.S. Capital, but from Cairo!! ad infinitum........
There is no "could". If the exec branch orders the US military to fire on demonstrators, there will be tanks in DC arresting the executive AND legislative branches wholesale. Oath is to upholding the constitution, not tyrants elected with a slick campaign that fooled millions.
I'm holding you responsible for any retinal damage.
How about a different scenario,
where a state refuses to enforce, or allow to be enforced,
an unconstitutional law within the boundaries of that state,
0bama sends out fedthugs, and the people of the state arrest said fedthugs....
But what if the executive branch wanted it to look like you and the rest of the people in your ‘compound’ burnt themselves to death?
Obama doesn’t need to command the US military to do anything. He just needs the ATF.
Taking on a nation of +200 million snipers, hit and run “Red Dawn” tactics, not smart to try.

It wasn't ME who brought up the subject of 'cracks showing'!
If something like Waco were to start to unfold today,
the feds wouldn’t have to worry about gunfire coming from INSIDE the “compound” as much as from OUTSIDE their perimeter.
Luckily, no one posted an HT picture to make us feel better;)
>Zounds! Blame ETL! He posted it!
>I’m still gakking!
But during WACO there were many normal, gun-owning civilians who wanted the Feds to hurry things up, not pussy-foot around. If you are painted as a cultist or some other kind of untermench then the American people will not help you.
Also: even if the battlelines are clearer than Waco, there may be too much ingrained respect for LEOs, too much wheat mixed with the chaff even in the ATF for a future resistance movement to be comfortable with shooting on them.
Nevertheless: I am sure the American people would rise against tyranny - of course they would - I just don't think they'll be breaking any seiges.
If you are optimistic, this depends upon how much recruiting standards are watered down and how much the promotion policy is corrupted. World history on the basic subject is extremely depressing, and I don’t think we nor any other people need to invoke even the above threats in order to worry. SOP for tyrants is to foist deprivation upon elements suspected of harboring “dangerous” sentiments (with executions for the most blatant displays), and abundant reward upon staunch loyalists. Attrition is generally answered by bolstering the ranks with erstwhile disaffected civilians (unemployed youth especially) in return for base rewards - sometimes directly astride regulars, but usually outside the prevailing command structure.
One problem is that insubordination generally occurs in a disorganized fashion (by design of the organizational structure and communication protocols - this is all good when the government is good, but bad when the government is bad). This may not be the case in the present and future due to the diffuse nature of communication channels, but central governments have retained enough control over even these that, if non-compliant communication occurs, there exists enough government access to all available channels (and ultimately control over key infrastructure, including power) that seeds of doubt can be sewn regarding the veracity or context of all inconvenient communications.
For example, I fully expect tyrants to answer (via both official government news agencies as well as through agents posing as part of the popular uprising) public reports of insubordination with collections of easily-falsified similar claims and chalk those up to psy-ops of foreign governments, hoping the masses ascribe the same motif to genuine revolts.
The difference in this case would be that millions of Americans will be armed....and if I remember correctly, the UN troops mostly run away if they receive return fire....
BRING IT ON....the sooner it starts, the sooner its over...
Not so sure about the “Idiot press” thing.
Take a look at the trick the BBC just pulled - they posted a story somewhat sympathetic to the anti-government demonstrations, and attached an image purported to be of one such anti-government demonstration. Several hours later, the BBC reported that it was in error, and that the image was actually of a pro-Iwannajihad rally, and provided a wider-angle image of the event containing both Iwannajihad and the earlier image.
This flap generated enormous press, giving cover to the BBC as well as the likes of al-Reuters and AP (which produce articles widely redistributed by other media outlets) to “neutrally” cover the image of popular support for Iwannajihad.
Show me where there is any respectability within the U.S. press corp.
They are past being prostitutes, and are full time concubines.
Yes, the press can occasionally make a “mistake”, but the consistency of the “lies” is so high as to remove all doubt.
Guard refuses orders? UH OH!
That is what I mean. They are not idiots. The fourth estate is the fifth column.
sir, you are mistaken.
Persian women are some of the most beautiful in the world.
Oath Keeper bump.....
Soon, we will be reading the same about American commanders.
General Ali Fazli BRIGADES NEED TO START FORMING UP.
Radio America should be working overtime on this.
SLAMMING Irans govt in the press.
SLAMMING Irans govt in the ...HEAD WITH MISSILES.
ITs time for overt military action. We have Iran surrounded. We have Air Land and Sea Supremecy. The people are revolting. The mullahs want to start a nuclear war in the Mideast and want to sacrifice millions of their own people in order to start this war. Now other country is going to attack US to defend Iran.
Knock out their Airports, bridges, Military and ParaMilitary HQs....snap crackle pop.
B.O. = COWARD
No argument with that statement.
They are an enemy of the nation.
