It is Time to Choose… Which America You Want You Grandkids to Live In!!
America has been on the edge for a long time and she is now teetering as far forward over the edge as a country possibly can before it falls over the cliff and is no longer recognizable. We either wake-up immediately and get-involved or there will be no America, at least not as you knew her, for your children and grandchildren… nor anything to take care of you from the benefits you already paid for!
The question is… which America do you want to live in:
The one above or the one below (and it has nothing to do with race, color or religion), at least not to the average Americans I know. It has to do with the law, sovereignty and becoming part of a melting pot and all that goes with it.
But that isn’t necessarily the situation with those in our administration. The following photo hangs on Eric Holder's office wall displaying Lady Justice peeking under her blindfold to check everyone's skin color.
I am an immigrant. A legal immigrant and have lived in the U.S. for going on 60-years. My parents waited in line… for their turn to come to the U.S. from Austria after WWII for 7-years. My mom was German and my dad was Austrian. They met in an American prisoner of war camp. They were both part of a medical unit that surrendered at the end of the war; my mother was a nurse in the Red Cross. Both their families were heavily involved in the underground during the NAZI years.
My parents paid their own way and mine; I was born during the 7-years they waited to come. They secured sponsors who were responsible for them, pretty much in every way for the first 5-years they were in the country. In fact that was the system, if you wanted to come to America, you not only had to wait in line… the lines were never longer than after the World Wars, especially after WWII, but everyone needed a sponsor… and those sponsors, not the government and not the taxpayers needed to assist and watch over those the sponsored… give them a place to stay; help them with funds if needed; get them medical assistance and help them find work, etc. All immigrants, until they were naturalized, had to register with the federal government every January, as well, so they always knew where we were.
My parents enrolled in English classes at the local high school within a month of them arriving, within that time my dad had found a full-time job. Within the first 3-months that they were here, we moved to our own place, my had added a part-time job and were all well on the road to speaking English. Almost everyone in our circle for friends was a relatively new immigrant, but not just from our country, from all over the world, and at our gatherings everyone spoke English. Everyone usually brought two dishes… one from their home country and one new American dish that they had learned to make. By the time I was 3 I could translate for my folks and helped the little American boy across the way improve his speech and English, said his mother.
My sister and brother were born in America, American citizens, and all of us were encouraged to retain our German language and hour heritage, but the focus was on speaking English, learning American traditions, knowing American history and becoming Americans… not Austrian or German… hyphenated Americans, as immigrants and others are know today.
And I explain this above to illustrate becoming part of a melting pot and all that goes with it. If you really want to become part of a new country and culture… you want to be better for your children and generally better than the place you are leaving, which means that the new country… America needs to survive. Between the onslaught of illegals in unmanageable numbers, the ideological infiltration of anti-American Progressives as well as the infiltration of groups who are hostile to our way of life including the Bill of Rights and America’s Judeo-Christian background, America… at least not the one people looked to and wanted to live in, will not survive.
I speak, read and write perfect English and German (as well as any of us do); both without an accent. I also speak rudimentary French and some Spanish. I can BBQ a steak, make a killer hamburger or bake red velvet cake as well as Austrian Apple Strudel or German Rouladen… as well a homemade tamales, thanks to an old co-worker. But I bleed red, white and blue, get chocked up when I talk about what America means to me and I get tears in my eyes when recite the pledge of allegiance (under God) or sing the star-spangled banner loudly (and badly) while at an event or watching the fireworks.
I always, of course, rout for the USA. But if knocked out or not competing in an event at the Olympics or World Cup… I rout for Austria and Germany. Why not? It is okay to be proud of your heritage. What is not okay is moving to another country and expecting them to change for you…
America has been under attack by enemies from without and within, who have steadily whittled away at the American dream, the U.S. Constitution and at the very fiber of America, for decades.
We continue to find ourselves running backwards because we do not take the time to understand our enemies. It is why we have lost in the Middle East and instead of defeating the terrorists we have emboldened them to move forward with their worldwide Islamic Caliphate… which has always been their goal; we never understood our enemy… Just today… on Ramadan, Obama adviser, Mohamed Elibiary, reasserts U.S. is ‘Islamic country’.

Our elected and appointed officials must come to terms with the doctrinal basis for jihad so we can properly and effectively defend America, protect American lives and face our enemies.
And lack of understanding is also why we have lost our country to the Progressive Movement. We never took the time to understand them, the enemies within and their goals either… You must understand your enemy before you can defeat them!! The Cloward-Piven Strategy, being used at the southern border right now and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals are two of the key elements in the Progressive tool chest…
Rules for Radicals, first published in 1971, is Saul Alinsky’s counsel to young radicals on how to effect social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” You cannot effectively fight your enemy if you do not understand him. In order to understand Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the rest of Progressive you need to understand Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as well as the Cloward and Piven Strategy, which is what they are using to capsize the republic and at the border right now.
Know them and know what Democrats are doing! You can’t beat an enemy you don’t understand… it is why we lost in Vietnam and the wars in the Middle East.
* RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)
* RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)
* RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
* RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
* RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)
* RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)
* RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)
* RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)
* RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)
* RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)
* RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)
Tickets for Beck’s ‘We Will not Conform’ anti-Common Core Event are on sale, and Dinesh D’Souza’s movie is in theaters right now, opening on the July 4th, 2014 weekend, based on his book America: Imagine a World without Her. “If Hillary Clinton is elected in 2016, the baton will have passed from one Alinskyite to another. In this case, Alinsky’s influence will have taken on a massive, almost unimaginable, importance. Obama will have had eight years to remake America, and Hillary will have another four or perhaps eight to complete the job,” he wrote. –> Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ warns Hillary Clinton will ‘finish off’ the country <–

Health Related Book Suggestions: Love Sex Again by Dr. Lauren Streicher. Special Heart: A Journey of Faith, Hope, Courage and Love by Bret Baier is a must read!! And: Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers by Dr. David Perlmutter and Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health By William Davis
And even people like former DNC Chair, Howard Dean, have now admitted that Sarah Palin was right and there will be death panels under ObamaCare!
Love Sex Again is an all-encompassing guide to women’s sexual health from Dr. Lauren Streicher, a cutting-edge Gynecologist, and a regular on The Dr. Oz Show.
Ladies, what if one of America’s leading sexual specialists and Gynecologist told you that she knew your body better than you did? What if she told you that she could fix the problems that are making your sex life less than perfect? More than 100 million women in America have problems in the bedroom, but don’t have the courage to ask their doctors for help. These problems don’t come from relationship issues, or the stresses of work and family. These are real, physical issues that are getting in the way of a vibrant, joyful sex life. Instead of getting the help they need, so many women make a silent deal with themselves: without fanfare, without discussion, they quietly give up on pleasure, or drastically compromise their expectations where sex is concerned. Sometimes women make this deal with themselves early on in their 20s or 30s; for other women, it doesn’t hit until their 40s, 50s or later. Most women lack the vocabulary to talk about these issues with their doctors, not to mention the pharmaceutical aids that are readily available to men. But no longer.
Dr. Streicher will show women how to regain their libido, determine what their issues are, and learn to fix whatever is broken “down there.” This much anticipated book will set women on a path to discovering (or rediscovering) deeply pleasurable, satisfying sex. She offers practical advice for real women of all ages—from childbearing to post-menopausal, and explains what a woman needs to know about her body, where she is in her life, and her relationships, and how it connects to a satisfying sex life.
The rate of occurrences of Alzheimer’s-Dementia (AD), ADD, ADHD, Autism (ASD), and debilitating Aging symptoms are through the roof. Everyone I know either suffers from one of these conditions (themselves); has a child, grandchild, parent, or grandparent who is afflicted; or they know someone, if not several some-ones, within their close circle that suffers from one or more of these diseases and conditions.
We are drowning in epidemics and dying of inflammation.

Book(s) of the Week: The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don't Want You to Know By Aaron Klein and Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas By Edward Klein
The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don't Want You to Know It is bigger than Watergate! Bigger than Iran-Contra! Ten times bigger than both, Rep. Steve King has said.
The Benghazi scandal may have been covered up by the White House, but the truth is about to come out. "The Real Benghazi Story" is a groundbreaking investigative work that finally exposes some of the most significant issues related to the murderous September 11, 2012, attack – information with current national security implications. Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Aaron Klein provides the answers many have longed for, from the secretive activities transpiring inside the doomed facility to shocking new details about the withholding of critical protection at the U.S. special mission. Learn about what really happened to Ambassador Chris Stevens that ill-fated night, the central role Hillary Clinton actually played in the scandal – and more! Also answered for the first time is why the State Department hired armed members of the al-Qaeda-linked February 17 Martyrs Brigade to protect the facility. New reasons are revealed for not sending air support or Special Forces during the assault, while extensively probing not only jihadist groups but also possible state actors behind the attack. These are just some of the new details to be revealed in this game-changing book…
Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas, the presumptive 2016 presidential candidate for the Democrats, got off to a false start… on her combo book tour for Hard Choices and unofficial pre-campaign swing, and it really doesn’t seem to be getting a whole lot better. Hillary is long on questionable old news and some down right unresolved scandals… that are growing instead of diminishing with the release of the Hillary Tapes… part 2. And then when you get right down to it… she is just not that relatable either, as proved by her attempted Broke-a-hontas ploy that she just won’t let go of.
I would say that perhaps this new book, Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas, by New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Edward Klein who also wrote The Amateur, might be a better and more informative read on Hillary and what is really going on.
In this highly anticipated follow-up to his blockbuster New York Times bestseller The Amateur, Edward Klein delves into the rocky relationship between the Obamas and the Clintons. An old-school reporter with incredible insider contacts, Klein reveals just how deep the rivalry between the Obamas and the Clintons runs, with details on closed-door meetings buttressed by hundreds of interviews.
Blood Feud is a stunning exposé of the animosity, jealousy, and competition between America’s two most powerful political couples, who in reality have so much in common!
Also checkout Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment By Andrew C McCarthy if you haven’t already read it.
The wolves are at the door!!
The GOP can beat Hillary with the right candidate. The left is going to use the same ploy with Hillary as they did with Obama… They will make themselves look like the Heroes because they are putting up the first women, as they did, the first black American, for President. It was what the campaign of lies against the GOP has been leading up to… the made up Republican War Against Women has been part of the plan to run Hillary with that carrot, all along. The Election of 2016 will be the battle for America’s soul and future and the key to the Republicans… Conservatives, the American Middle Class winning that battle is fighting fire with fire… pitting our strongest women against Hillary. The key to stopping Hillary Clinton is Sarah Palin!
Breitbart.com: The Economist/YouGov survey asked respondents in a series of polls last week which female candidate not named Hillary Clinton they would want to run for president.
Palin is first in the national survey with 9%, followed by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice with 8%. Michelle Obama is fourth with 2% of the vote.
In other national polls, Palin has the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters. If Sarah does not run in 2016, her influence and potential endorsement could tip the GOP presidential contest as the GOP may be the most split from within in the past 40 years.
