Well there Janet, I thought us right wing, gun toting, Bible thumping, fly over country people were the problem. What happened? Someone finally drill into your pea brained head that the enemy is the Jihadist?

SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME IN AMERICA - WE IGNORE IT AT OUR PERIL


SIX CRITICAL REASONS TO NOT TRY TERRORISTS IN US COURT


AWAKEN, O AMERICA, YOUR LIBERTY IS CALLING (Inspiring Video)


THE MODERN AMERICAN DECLARATION OF LIBERTY: 2009 (Long read, but very worth it)

"The House of Representatives can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society...without which every government degenerates into tyranny. If it be asked, what is to restrain the House of Representatives from making discriminations in favor of themselves and a particular class of the society? I answer: the nature of just and constitutional laws; and above all, the vigilant and manly spirit which actuates the people of America, a spirit which nourishes freedom, and in return is nourished by it." Federalist Paper No. 57, Alexander Hamilton

Janet talks out of her ass. I thought Al Qaeda was not threat and we were loved by the enemy. Now she is talking about the enemy? I thought Bush was the enemy and because of him they hated us. Must have gotten some bad intelligence today and has to protect her ass.

Janet doesn't mean that, but that's what she means ~

I'm reminded a lot of the Clinton regime. And the Carter regime.

These Democrats seem to be absolutely incapable of maintaining security at the White House.

with the lackadasical attitude of the current administration to security (including the White House party crashers) Americans are going to get killed. I have no doubt.

Borders are not controlled.

Radical Muslims in the US Military are not profiled as dangerous out of fear of being called hate mongers.

Muslim cesspools like Dearborn and Detroit Michigan are becoming foot holds for sharia law and radical jihad instruction.

Rules of Engagement for our military give too many rights to the enemy and give them a battlefield advantage over our troops, who have to “confirm with command” before shooting back.

Goat meat is about to surpass lamb in demand in America.
What does that tell us?

Political correctness has guaranteed it, and is protecting it.

There are terrorist training camps spread out across the country, but nothing can be done about it, because terrorists have PC protections and Constitutional rights.
BUT.....don't get caught being part of a pro-American, citizen militia, or they'll be after your butt within hours!
Only those from the left wing special interest groups have the extra PC protection. The jihadists are a left wing voting block - and they donate.

A preparation for the attacks that they know they cannot prevent due to their insane policy changes, to get us used to the idea. Just like the “don’t start mammograms until fifty not forty” is to set us up for the reduced access to medical care that is sure to follow their socialized medicine scheme.

Jesus says to love our enemies and do good to those who hate us, but He did NOT insist that we enter a suicide pact with them!

OMG, they’re issuing a pre-strike strike statement to lay the ground work for ‘Blame it on Bush’. One thing we seem to agree on, is that our immigration policies have been maximum inappropriate for a wartime setting, however... Commandant Zero has had plenty of time to change policy. Has he?

Okay, since they know, we know, everybody knows, there are Al Qaeda here, why not make them not here. Send the jerks home or erase their ass.

Nah, that would be politically incorrect. We mustn’t ‘PROFILE’.

Say, who do I contact to put our nation on suicide watch?

Americans are going to get killed.

Especially when Mexico is at war as well.

War? In Mexico?

Seventeen more people killed in northern Mexico violence

{snip} President Felipe Calderon said he will keep 50,000 soldiers deployed in Chihuahua and other northern states bordering the United States to quell drug-related violence that since he took office in 2006 has killed more than 14,000 people.

50,000 troops? 14,000 killed?

Blame Bush (again) is the theme of the week. Valerie jarrett was on CNBC this am crapping all over W again time after time after time.... it was so obvious and boring.

Next week I predict they will start on H1N1 again, even though that has been a slow starter. Anything to get the Acrapistan mess of the front page.

American citizens are acceptable collateral damage. But heaven forbid we blow up a safe house with civies in it to get a few jihadi’s they are harboring.

More evidence our government cares nothing for the people. They just want to protect themselves and their kingdom.

No, they're just saying it to justify Obomas sending 30,000 troops to Afghanistan, because the left is pi$$ed. So, if they tell them "boo" and scare them a little, the left will settle down a bit.

Of course, they know terrorists are here, but they see terrorism as a minor inconvenience. The Muslims vote democrat, and they send in large donations around election time. There's no way the democrats want these people inconvenienced in any way.

I am reading “The Muslim Mafia” and CAIR is actively recruiting inner-city gang members and hispanics. The reasoning given was they already have uzis and 9mm but lack discipline. Islam will give them discipline and them send them back to the streets.

Don’t worry, Janet. Nothing will happen on your watch.

If we take a little stroll through History, the Republicans always get to play Clean-Up after you moronic LibTards encourage the ENEMY for a number of years, because we look WEAK as kittens under your administrations.

And besides, if something DOES happen, you can always blame it on President Bush...or sweep it under the rug if it’s jsut a ‘test run’ such as the FIRST bombing of the Twin Towers on Clinton’s watch...or the assault on our Navy in Yemen, etc.

But, since the populace is SO dumbed down, I’m pretty sure no one will notice, anyway.

*SIGH* We’re so screwed!

When Carter handed off to Reagan, he handed him a pile of woe. Interest rates, unemployment, sagging economy...

It was appropriate to blame him for our ills for a few years. Any problems Bush handed off that are of a similar nature, I think we can agree Bush has some things to answer for.

That being said, Obama has had time to take action. He did take action. It was clearly the wrong action. He’s spending this nation into the poor house to boot. What is taking place now, is more or less Obama’s fault, because proper action being taken, our economy would be rebounding by now. It isn’t. It’s still sinking, despite the B.S. pronouncements by his administration and the MSM.

I can take only so much propaganda. I’m up to here with it right now. This guy is flailing. He hasn’t the slightest idea what to do other than blame somebody else.

Good luck with that. The nation is restless. This guy is too light in the loafers, and everyone, I mean everyone knows it.

The left has saddled themselves with Carter to the X.

It would if it were actually written in law...but it was a part of the Federalist papers where Hamilton and others were explaining things. It’s not written that directly into the constitution. Would that it were because it is obvious that was their intent.
