A Battle Conservatives Need to Fight
American Spectator ^ | 1.25.13 | LARRY THORNBERRY

Posted on 01/29/2013 10:21:22 PM PST by neverdem

Yes, Dear, I Mean Yes, Sir, I mean Yes Ma’am, I mean Yes, Ms., I mean…

It’s absolutely stunning that we’re even talking about this. Have we taken total leave of our senses?


Opening combat positions to women, our clueless commander in chief says, is an “historic step toward harnessing the talents and skills of all our citizens.” If Obama imagines that one woman in a hundred has what it takes to be a kick-butt, infantry ground-pounder, he’s led a more sheltered life than I ever imagined.

Obama ends his statement with this howler: “Today, every American can be proud that our military will grow even stronger with our mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters playing a greater role in protecting this country we love.”

I faint dead away. Could brave Americans possibly have ejected the British, sorted our own differences, dealt with the Kaiser’s boys, and then helped beat the Wehrmacht and the Imperial Japanese Navy just so our “mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters” have a shot at earning the combat infantryperson’s badge, and possibly getting atomized in the process?

If this one is put through, it’s further proof, as if more were needed, that there is no reality that modern leftist can’t stand on its head. No nation in history has ever tried to hide behind its women’s skirts on the battlefield. No nation that tries this will long survive. No nation that sinks to this deserves to.

Cranky column to follow.

I realize every day what an anachronistic dinosaur I am, and how everything I know is wrong. I actually grew up thinking women were superior to men, and the whole reason we fought and died was so they didn’t have to.

But to hell with it. If women want to get in the $hit, who am I to deny them the privileged.

That fight was lost in two elections 2008 and 2012.

Lets not lose the rest by giving illegals the vote.

I don’t know how to fight it.

If we elect a really great President in 2016, will they even be able to put an end to this madness?

This disgusting Curse on our Nation named Barack Hussein Obama II, aka Barry Soetoro, has a real birth certificate, with his right footprint on it.
All you have to do is look for it.

Here's some critical sources and FACTS.
People can go to and read their pages 20 thru 32 ,
For those of you who don't know, remember this:
8 Congressional attempts from June 2004 to February 2008 to alter Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution, proves to meRead it for yourself.
Then look at these links.
Just before the 2008 election Barack Obama's election team spent $1.4 million blocking access to all of Obama's records.

There were 8 attempts by Democrats to try to "Change the Qualification Rules" BEFORE Obama was elected.

Obama's record is hard to find.
Check this link out Sunday, June 27, 2004 Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate.

This document from the British National Archives Show Son Born To Obama Sr. in 1961 In Kenya

shows a birth date of Aug 4, 1961, the exact date of genuine birth certificate with Obama's right foot print on it.

This IS the very document that links the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF to his birth certificate.

Let me say again: Think about this.
Here's something to ponder. Now think about those facts,and statements.
The forgeries I'm aware of, are the three Birth Cretificate Barack Hussein Obama II has forged.
I don't trust evidence put forth by Obama supporters.
The disappearance of too much evidence on Obama is strong enough for me to know that he was born in Kenya.

The documents provided in that article are very damaging to Obama, and well worth your time.

Most of these early "supporters" of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF were party to the Communists "spooks".
There's a great volume of history you have to go through to understand this, and it goes back to about 1850.

Read these three articles on one of my earlier post:

Now go back and read The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals.

Are you getting the depth of this Fabian Society takeover?

You wouldn't believe the information here

It's deep, it's ugly, and most people WILL NOT ... CAN NOT ... accept the truth.

Anybody recall a press release telling the masses about federal intelligence notes sent warning police about this cabal?

spodefly: "But to hell with it. If women want to get in the $hit, who am I to deny them the privileged."

Really, there's not much any of us can do about it anyway. We have the leaders we deserve, and they're going to do whatever they want regardless. My only hope is if we're going to keep playing the fairness card above all else, then let's do it fairly.

Let's have identical fitness standards for military men and women and force women to serve their complete enlistment even if they get pregnant (if they take time off to have the child, then that time gets added to their service obligation). True fairness means all young women need to register with the Selective Service and be available for the draft. It's only fair. Yep. Let's play the fairness card right back at 'em!

They don't. I think they're being "volunteered" so that certain lesbian officers can get combat commands and get their tickets punched .... on the way to becoming the commanders of the New American Army that Obama wants to turn its guns on the People of the United States.

I think that's the play that's being made here.

I am all for it but the idea seems to be getting no serious traction. The man was just re-elected, for heaven’s sake. No well known conservative, not one, will take up the banner. The most credible and influential “conservative” to be publicly “on our side” appears to be Donald Trump. I appreciate his stand but it seemed to have had no impact. So while I am very willing for this to occur, I have no means to make it happen.
