Dangerous Times: Gimme a
General Who Won´t Fight!

American Thinker, by James Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 1/26/2013 6:09:00 AM

It was Lincoln who said "Give me a general who will fight!" That was after the North was defeated over and over again by Robert E. Lee´s smaller and more agile armies. Lincoln´s first generals fought desperately hard, but not hard enough to win. In the upshot, the Civil War dragged out to became our bloodiest war ever, 600,000 dead -- mostly white folks. And yes, it was triggered by Christian Abolitionists who made slavery morally intolerable to half the nation. Lincoln was therefore forced to find generals who would fight, and he found Sherman and Grant, who wreaked terrible destruction

Generals who won´t fight ordering their troops not to shoot at the enemy.

G-d help the free world.

We have a traitor in the white house.

Excellent article with great historical context. The comments after it are equally enlightening. I know that God watches over the US, and I pray that He will guide us in the right direction. I also pray that on 20 Jan 2017 we still HAVE a country for a American President to lead.

I don´t understand how anyone could put the "sensibilities" of muslims over the safety of our men and women, but that is evidently the consensus of thought by the men in command who send their men and women to walk the patrols twice a day. Apparently, this only accomplishes the maiming and killing of Americans. The only thing that will change the hearts and minds of the jihadists of the world is releasing the unrelenting hell of the U.S. military on them to such a degree that they are decimated and defeated. Until we reach that mindset, we will continue to sacrifice our young men and women on the altar of political warfare and Muslim sensibilities. Unleash the military or bring them home.

Down through the years we have been able to defeat militaries that were full of suck-up leadership too fearful of making a decision without checking in with the dictator or his right hand man. This is even worse!

I´d prefer all US military who would NOT fire on fellow citizens.

Does anyone really connect the horror of Lincoln to today and what that would look like, implemented by 0bama?

When will Lincoln be seen as the monster he was? Maybe when we have the modern day equivalent using those hollow-points he has been amassing on us conservatives, the current enemy.

Great article. When America is not patrolling its beat around the world the world is soon in chaos i.e. WWI and WWII. Obama´s weakness will be challenged in the next four years, and when he surrounds himself with Flag Officers who are Politically Correct Yes Men who rolled over on gays and now are ready to water down combat standards to the point young girls can be pushed to front line combat units, disaster is soon to follow. Weak Generals and admirals added to Obama´s thinking he is the smartest guy in the room will lead to the deaths of our finest young people and a disaster of magnitude Americans have never seen before.

Mr. Obama wants obedient generals (as well as other Citizens), so the capable and independent types have to be removed. Stalin did this in purges of the Red Army in the late 1930s, so that the Army would be his instrument rather than a potential power rival. Mother Russia paid the bill in the blood of millions against Hitler, until courage and fighting spirit were again permitted by the central dictatorship.

#2, at your suggestion I read some of the comments after the excellent article, and one struck a note with me because I have noticed this in my church, which is an evangelical version of a mainline church. Even one of my pastors is kind of caught up in it and I am concerned.

From commenter amerigal1 who voiced her feelings in her Sunday school class said: Islam has malevolent plans for Jews and Christians. I just can´t keep from repeating the awful truth about the insidious "interfaith bridges" that some Christian churches are falling for.

While the Great Commission, which my pastors love to tout, Matthew 28:16-20, Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.,I don´t think Jesus meant for us to abdicate to a false "religion of peace" that intends to wipe out all Christians and Jews.

As another commenter, diane+tx said:ISLAM is the global problem. It doesn´t need to be parsed into "peaceful", "moderate" or "radical". The stated goal of Islam is to make the entire World Islamic.

They say it over and over again. So why don´t we believe them?


Also why don´t we believe that Obama agrees with that? So what if he took his oath on a stack of Bibles - I imagine he had his fingers crossed, liar that he is.

"...Obama is a gambler, and he doesn´t want to think about what might happen if his wild gambles don´t pay off."

I disagree. Obama is a cookie-cutter appeaser.

What he is doing is what every appeaser in power will do. There is no gambling involved, because appeasers never consider outcomes, which are 100% failure.

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
