The Victim of a Crime
American Thinker, by Richard B. Jones

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 11/18/2012 7:33:46 AM

Have you ever been robbed? I don´t mean burglarized. I mean robbed -- ambushed by armed men, your valuables taken by force. I have -- in broad daylight in downtown San Francisco -- and that´s what happened to conservatives in the recent national election. We can analyze and rationalize all we want, but the basic act was a crime that took decades to set up and only a day to perpetrate. Hurrying, I rounded a corner and met a "homeless" man looking straight into my eyes holding a knife to my stomach.

The first thing is to stop blaming Romney and any other Republican/Conservative. And stop blaming the voters, because the fact is that the majority of voters wanted Romney, not Obama. If it hadn´t been for the rampant voter fraud, Romney would have won.

My friend in San Fran calls it the "Life-Boat" paradigm. Because we all live so close together our individual liberties must be sharply curtailed and we must address all questions collectively.

My response, as a rural Texan, is:

Taurine Excrement !!!

Who would live in a lifeboat if they could get back onto the perfectly good big boat ??

Excellent article by Mr. Jones explaining in detail our current status and how it came to be.

This article should be a ´Must Read´ and it should be read slowly and absorbed mentally right down to the very last word.

We´re sitting in a country thatwas overthrown with a silent coup and nowhave a government that opposes everything traditional America stands for.Our biggest problem is we´re too civilized to do anything serious about it.

To begin with the GOP needs a national go to spokesman who´s an unabashed conservative and can explain why.The republican chairman in SC would be a good place to look and we need to stop picking wimpy RNC chairman like Rince(lather,repeat) Pribus.`

Obama,Reid,Boehner etc. aren´t going to be the ones working out a deal,high powered lobbyists will.The politicians are just front people for the lobbyists and I´ll bet there´s liberal lobbyists that are fighting the tax increases on the so-called rich but they can´t admit it in public which would hurt Obama´s themematics.

Only one side was ever fighting, meaning the left. From the school books, to you name it. To this day, the political class on the right has no interest in saving this country. All they care about is being liked by democrats. They think we are the enemy. The left on the other hand has the following advantages: computerized voting machines, the media, Hollywood, the SEIU, billionaire environmentalists, more Soros funded groups than anyone can count, and are motivated by ideology. We have none of those things. What could we have done if we had even had Candy Crowley or David Gregory? The GOP so-called leadership despises us and publicly humiliates us by telling the NY Times that we have to take our medicine because Obama won. They´ve made it quite clear they have no interest in us. It makes no sense to continue. It´s only going to get worse when Jeb Bush´s book comes out followed by his candidacy.

In the country´s case, the "homeless guy with the knife" is Obama (America is clearly not his home, regardless of where he was actually born). And the other homeless guys with knives are the millions of illegals the Democrats have not only allowed and encouraged to pour across our borders, but who also have been diabolically facilitated and enabled to vote for the other knife holders.

Homeless. Knife-wielding. Armed robbers. A perfect analogy.

And if the Republicans go along to get along and enact "immigration reform", not only are they stupid beyond belief, they should name it the "Homeless Knife-Wielding Robber Invitation Act".

Years ago I had a tall young black kid come up behind me and put a knife to my neck and say ´don´t scream!´ ................

It was 2 pm in the afternoon and I sort of turned to look at him and said ......´what are you trying to do ......don´t you know you could kill somebody that way´? ..........

He took the knife away from my throat, but I still remember how sharp it felt there.

The police caught him but since he as 2 weeks short of his 18th birthday and he had just gotten out of a juvenile institution ...... they never prosecuted him. [to my knowledge my efforts for his prosecution failed]

Philadelphia has one of the worst murder ´clearance´ rates in the country.

I have ofter wondered how many people later in his life he stabbed, slit throats, or killed.

Obama ushered in America’s first large-scale experiment in personality-cult politics. His goal? Creating the U.S.S.A with himself as Dictator with a plan:

Using lies to appeal to the most uneducated segment of society who rely on government handouts—Free Stuff--to function.

Appealing to hard-left progressives and special interests who hate anyone from the middle or right, and believe anyone questioning their Leader must be destroyed.

Wooing women and the 35-and-under crowd, who were never taught about the greatness of America.

Buying union votes with the $447 billion American jobs act that adds a half-trillion dollars in new debt for American taxpayers while reducing our Gross Domestic Product output and pushing our unemployment rate even higher.

Concealing the terrorist murder of four Americans at our diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

Stealing the election.

What can we do? Let Obama and his media cohorts have their way.

Republicans: Do not compromise; let them struggle with their socialism. America is made up of patriots who will not accept tyranny, but in this case, going over the cliff is acceptable if it destroys Obama.

Sure, the economy and culture will collapse, but that may be the impetus needed for us to Take Back America; perhaps as it was done once before: by force.

Do you think if Obama had lost by 300 thousand votes he would have conceded? No. He would have demanded recounts and went to court. This sorry nicey picey candidate Romney will do no such thing. The election was stolen. And the republicans with Ed Gillespie/Karl Rove will do nothing.

I was a business owner and was a victim of an all-too-common armed robbery. I eventually moved far away from such a horrible (Democrat infested) area. Now, I feel like I´m living in a enemy occupied country but have nowhere else to go.

Let me explain something about the robbery, though. As I said, it was common in the area. The perp got about $50 and I was hiding about $1,500. He got what I could afford to lose and no more. That is why my policy now is that while they can steal my taxes to give to cronies and parasites, I won´t hand give anything else to anyone I don´t know personally. No more Ms. Nice Lady.

You must start by identifying the enemy. Who on the RIGHT are leading the defeat? Once we know them by name, we can eliminate them from leadership.

The Tea Party tried to stir up the right, but ran into resistance from the unnamed enemy. The greatest hope for the right is the Tea Party. Time to reenergize. We have the greatest weapon of all - the recall. Organize together and start eliminating the leaders who are unwilling to fight the liberals.

Voter fraud, massive voter fraud occurred this election. If you have 175K+ registered voters AND one person gets 247K+. Swing states reported the majority of problelms
If Romney had the spine of Col. West, he would contest this election in Court. There is still time and stop making excuses for "gift buying".

Yes, #17, I also think this election was robbed. In many places ther were 150% of votes, in others 130% and in others 0 votes for Romney. This election should have been contested and investigated. An L-dotter wrote than twice she voted for Romney and the vot came for Obama. Only on the third time the vote wasmcast for her candidate. Romney is too nice and he conceeded too early. Now we have four more years of nightmare.

I wonder how we will be able to live through these four years. What is worse, I suppose they are already preparing the next election the same way. Who is it going to be, Hitlery and Bubba, Moochele?

God help this wonderful country!

He´s certainly right about when it happened. Right after WWII and the beginning of the Cold War. It was a concerted effort to bring America down from within. Unfortunately, they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Culturally and morally America is now in shambles. Possibly even unable to come together long enough to win another world war. But we do have gadgets, drugs, porn and Hip-Hop music. And they say we defeated Communism...

Over the last 50 years they have taken over the courts, now packed with liberal judges supporting their agenda.

Over the last 50 years they have taken over the media, on an exponential curve. The government schools, the colleges, the universities - all churning out properly indoctrinated sycophants.

They have created an immigration mess that denies a visa to a Polish Engineer, but grants one to an uneducated Muslim, while allowing a porous southern border to allow tens of millions of uneducated vermin to infest our country, more than half of whom immediately go on the dole, the rest to perpetuate the drug trade. And now they want to grant them amnesty - so they can vote for them.

They steal elections blatantly, lie to the citizens about what´s going on, and have driven this country deeply into debt.

There aren´t enough of us to stop them or even slow them down. They won. Kiss America goodbye.

#2 - Romney is an idiot. You never saw the GOP anywhere near this election, and where´s the GOP in Allen West´s hand to hand combat? The GOP absolutely abandoned us, hung us out to dry and are cackling like old hens over there on First Street

Absent from the field of battle. Hear anything from Boehner during the election?? (crickets)

That said, you are 100% right

We´ve been raped and brutalized and they laugh about it every day in the White House and probably do unspeakable things to the Founding Father´s busts and portraits

Fundamentally, liberals are physical and moral cowards. Most of them avoid military service. Their kids are taught to let schoolyard bullies bully them. If the unspeakable and unthinkable should ever occur, they can be easily subdued. But they´re afraid. They´re afraid that eventually we´ll treat their provocations the way we treated King George and his provocations. This is why they try to incite us to violence, while preaching to us eternally against violence.

I am going to state this,fully aware that I may be castigated, but with the full knowledge of how detested we Christians,pro-life and "turn-the-other-cheek" types most of us are, unless & until the Rs establish once an for all that we revere the US Constitution,the Bill of Rights and remain restrained in our zealous efforts to convince others we´re right, then,well,we´ll always lose.

Our "establashment" R. leaders will always choose the path of least resistance against the non-believers and even the most conservative,ardent members of the Congress never take to the floor and espouse their deeply held views about their religion.

How then are they known by us? We know them by their proposed legislation,their editorials and their public life-styles.

As for the messaging of the pundits,they too are guarded against the ridicule of those who would define them.

On election night I felt robbed of my birthright. The voter fraud in the key districts of the swing states was blatant, but not unexpected by any observant conservative of the last several decades. Yet our GOP “establishment” and candidate appear not to posses the stomach for the final battle of the election by calling out the fraud and demanding recounts. I used to give the GOP the benefit of the doubt by labeling them “the stupid party”, but how long can they be this stupid? Obviously to many of us the only conclusion is they are playing on the same one-world-government team.

Even if there were no fraud, Romney would have won by a small margin. America was given the best candidate for president in decades: A man with the specific skill set for economic problem solving, a man of character and principle guided by a deep faith in God, surrounded by a strong and successful family which is the fruit of a dedicated and loving marriage. America should have voted for this man in numbers that would overcome the fraud. It did not do so. Political solutions are no longer available to us.

Cont.

The Tea Party Movement’s basic motivating factor was the belief that the Silent Majority of traditional Americans comprised 60-70% of our countrymen. On Election Day we found out that we are not a majority. We are at best 50-50, with conservative philosophy and values being on the wane.

What to do? Some say, “Take over the media! Take over academia! Take over big entertainment!” These calls are not new and to effect the changes will take decades. We just don’t have the time. We are losing our culture because our country, as a whole, has rejected God. America will feel the just consequences of choosing socialism and statism, and those consequences will be a tribulation for all. It is a time for prayer and putting on the Armor of God. Every faithful person will be tested. Resistance to the regime will come to down to each individual, however they decide to affect their non-consent. For me, the time I used to spend in political activities will now be spent in prayer and scripture study. Let me know when the shooting starts.

After only 4+ decades, -2 generations, ´suddenly,´ we find America the Beautiful emersed in an increasingly unrecognizable society which refuses to acknowledge right from wrong. Today´s PC message is ANYTHING goes & laws are, ´made to be broken1?!!´ ...WHAT HAPPENED to America´s discernment between right from wrong?!

We did not invent this world! It was already here, ´´In the beginning...,´´ when human beings arrived and certainly when America´s Founders established this exceptional country! They knew, ´´Absolutes,´´ existed before human beings appeared on this planet and that we must adapt to the absolutes which already exist because they are in place for our benefit. They point the true course to freedom by encouraging us to make right decisions, not the wrong. Absolutes like right & wrong are thus, for our benefit! To deny right from wrong is folly. AMerica´s Founders knew that apart from our Creator we can do nothing. We should learn from our wrong choice, ´mistakes.´

Staist policies seem to be diverting us away from every principle/absolute which has helped secure & achieve the Founders´s goals for the U.S.A. of, ´Life, Liberty, Justice for All,´ and the personal freedom regarding each individual´s Pursuit of Happiness.

´´Right,´´ and ´´wrong,´´ DO still exist! ´´The proof is in the pudding!´´ Our choices of actions as individuals do have consequences! We seem to be losing America´s discernment of right from wrong but, ´character still counts.´ Nations reflect the character of its citizens, eh?

Some of you have not learned the lesson this article is teaching. You are still fighting Romney, Baehner, and other Republicans harder than you are fighting the Democrats.

One of you wants to turn to Newt. Does it make sense to turn to someone who did not seem to understand that because he was not on the ballot in Virginia and in some other states was on the ballot in some counties and not in others that it was mathematically impossible for him to get the nomination? Because neither Gingrich nor Santorum would admit reality and get out Romney had to spend so much money that he had nothing for several months with which to answer Obama´s Bain Capital charges.

Others want Romney to challenge the election. They say he should have the courage of Allen West. I have sent West $100 for his recount fight but it is already lost. If we can´t win in a small District how could we recount miillions of votes? Try to accept reality and stop dreaming. And for the love of heaven, stop the nastiness and infighting.

I don´t want to fighgt this battle all over again

# 32 is right on.
Stop the infighting.
The Tea Party , the so called " RINOs " , the moderates
and the Ron Paul cadre had better come together pronto and figure out a way to work as one.
As the Democrats have done.
The Democrats united all their factions.
Until all conservatives , libertarians and Republicans can stop the name calling and the antipathy towards
each other
and recognize that all of us are united
in one common goal
( to save America )
the Democrats will continue to roll over us.

Hi folks. A lot of misery, disapointment and sorrow protrayed by above posts. I am a 91 years old military veteran (1942-1972). During three wars I defended our Constitution and way of life. I was honored to do so. Never would I have had the thought that our way of life could be destroyedthe way it has (is) happening. Where are the GOP leaders who should be shouting about the open way R votes were turned into D votes before our eyes? I was called back to vote again, as my R vote was rejected by my ballot not going thru the counter! To me, this is treasonous!!! There are millions of votes that were turned likewise. Not a peep from our leaders. I had a pacemaker inserted in me last week. A sad time for our Country.

Please allow second post: N.M. God Bless you for your service to our Nation in time of war and out. Heard from a recent speech, those who signed on to fight fascism, socialism, communism and dictators did not say they would fight for a tour or a year, they signed on to fight for the duration. Tho this rejection of conservatism may become our 40 years in the desert, I for one will not let my kids or grandkids think that giving in or walking away is an answer to evil knocking on our door.

Grassroots movements like the Tea Party can only accomplish so much. In the end we need leadership that we can rally around. If someone would emerge with the stated aim of rehabbing the Republican brand (I would love to see TV ads running in non-election cycles explaining conservatism and attacking socialism) and who is unafraid to put RINOS in their place, then we might get somewhere.

If disparate groups like tribal blacks, tenured elitist communists, and Hollywood twits can join forces against us, people of character can put aside thier differences temporarily to join against them.

They believe the end justifies any means, and maybe it´s time we played by thier wide open rules. But we need leadership. We are badly in need of a George Washington.

Romney wasn´t quite the man for the job of dealing with the savages we face. How I wish for an Arnold Schwartzkopf.

The GOP/RNC establishment lap dogs want you to just shut up and except your vote is no longer worthy of being fought for nor protected.

If that doesn´t sum up the reason why these perpetual losers should be ignored then there truly is no hope for the Republican Party.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

It’s good Gov. Cuomo understands New York has a problem with cigarette smuggling. Too bad he has yet to figure out what’s really driving the problem of illegal smokes: our high tobacco taxes.Just days after a key report found New York has the highest percentage of illegal cigarettes of any state, the governor announced the creation of a new “strike force” meant to crack down.Teams from 13 state, local and federal agencies, he said, are joining to stop “the influx of counterfeit and untaxed tobacco products into New York” and nab smugglers who “evade the law and rob the state

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

´The debate over repealing this law is over´: Obama

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

The Clinton Library took the wraps off another batch of White House documents Friday afternoon, offering new insights into how aides scrambled to address the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how the hot-button issue of race tied the White House staff up in knots and how former President Bill Clinton cast a wide net for advice in advance of his major speeches.The new set of Clinton documents make little mention of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and so are unlikely to have a major political impact. However, many of the memos were written by or mention aides to Bill Clinton who now hold

Famous as the ´Money Honey,´ Maria Bartiromo is about to begin a Sunday morning show on the Fox News Channel—but not before firing a ringing broadside at her former CNBC bosses. The “Money Honey” may have moved across the street--from CNBC to Fox--but she’s still the same hyper-competitive, no-nonsense, Brooklyn-born business enthusiast that viewers have come to know as Maria Bartiromo.“I’m not changing,” the 46-year-old financial news luminary told me on Thursday as she rode back from a sit-down with Ken Frazier, the chairman and CEO of the Merck pharmaceutical empire in the wilds of northern New Jersey. “I’ve always

WASHINGTON — The online insurance marketplace in Oregon is such a technological mess that residents have been signing up for health coverage by hand. In Texas, political opposition to President Obama’s health law is so strong that some residents believe, erroneously, that the program is banned in their state.But in Connecticut, a smoothly functioning website, run by competent managers, has successfully enrolled so many patients that officials are offering to sell their expertise to states like Maryland, which is struggling to sign people up for coverage. The disparities reveal a stark truth about the Affordable Care Act: With the first open

Two CNN producers were arrested Tuesday for trying to sneak into the World Trade Center site to test its security — after The Post reported that a teen made it all the way to the spire of the world’s top terror target. Connor Boals, 26, and Yon Pomrenze, 35, made multiple attempts to get onto Ground Zero before being arrested shortly after 2 p.m., law enforcement sources said. The pair initially tried to get through a gate at Vesey and Washington streets, with a source saying they told the cop who stopped them that “if a 16-year-old could get on the site, they should be able to get in.” Next, they headed east, with Boals twice being spotted

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!
