No law can protect a society that has forgotten the warrior’s tale.
It is not only the warriors who need the tale, or those left behind. Future generation learn who they are from this tale. “We are the people who died for this land,” is the unseen moral of each tale. “We bled for it. Now it is yours to bleed and die for.”
The warrior’s tale tells each generation that they stand on the wall against a hostile world. And that the wall is made not of stones, but of their virtues. Their courage, their integrity and their craft. Theirs is the wall and they are the wall– and if they should fail, then it will fail. And the land and the people will be swept away.
Universalism discards the warrior’s tale as abomination. A division in the family of man. Their tale is of an unselfish world where there are no more divisions or distinctions. Where everyone is the same in their own way. But this tale is a myth, a religious idea perverted into totalitarian politics. It is a promise that cannot be kept and a poison disguised with dollops of sugar. It lures the people into tearing down their wall and driving out their warriors. And what follows is what always does when there is no wall. The invaders come, the women scream, the children are taken captive and the men sit with folded hands and drugged smiles dreaming of a better world.
Universalism demands that war must answer to universal aims and objectives. That there is a universal law higher than war. But this is a children’s story.
So before they grab a lung full of air and shove back in, folks are trying to bring some stuff to their attention … to get some mainstream reporters to do something they’re not used to doing : reporting.
As Hillary Clinton came under increasing scrutiny for her story about facing sniper fire in Bosnia, one question that arose was whether she has engaged in a pattern of lying.
The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.
… she was a liar … She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.
“Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public,” Zeifman said. Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding – as if the Douglas case had never occurred.
The brief was so fraudulent and ridiculous, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.
At that time Hillary Rodham was 27 years old. She had obtained a position on our committee staff through the political patronage of her former Yale law school professor Burke Marshall and Senator Ted Kennedy. Eventually, because of a number of her unethical practices I decided that I could not recommend her for any subsequent position of public or private trust.
My own reaction was of regret that, when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations.
As was later to be described in the Wall Street Journal by Henry Ruth, the lead Watergate courtroom prosecutor, “The Clintons corrupted the soul of the Democratic Party.”
IRS Scandal: The inexplicable raid nearly two years ago on a guitar maker for using allegedly illegal wood that its competitors also used was another targeting by this administration of its political enemies.
Grossly underreported at the time was the fact that Gibson’s chief executive, Henry Juszkiewicz, contributed to Republican politicians. Recent donations have included $2,000 to Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and $1,500 to Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
By contrast, Chris Martin IV, the Martin & Co. CEO, is a long-time Democratic supporter, with $35,400 in contributions to Democratic candidates and the Democratic National Committee over the past couple of election cycles.
what Gibson described as “two hostile raids on its factories by agents carrying weapons and attired in SWAT gear where employees were forced out of the premises, production was shut down, goods were seized as contraband and threats were made that would have forced the business to close.”
Gibson, fearing a bankrupting legal battle, settled and agreed to pay a $300,000 penalty to the U.S. Government. It also agreed to make a “community service payment” of $50,000 to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation — to be used on research projects or tree-conservation activities.
» Democrats Attempt to Link Tea Party to Nazis
And being so accustomed to having the media covering their backs, Dhimmicrats continue to
make insinuating allegations fabricate and propagate lies …
A fundraising appeal from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee titled, “Danger: tea party update” begins with this warning: “At one Tea Party rally this week, mobs chanted “Waterboard Obama, Waterboard Hillary! At another, radicals waved signs with Nazi symbols.”
The e-mail concludes, “the Democratic Senate is the only thing holding back the right-wing House from implementing their radical agenda,” repeating the word “radical.” They have left themselves room to avoid a libel suit, but the implication is clear: members of the Tea Party are dangerous neo-Nazis.
So, did radicals wave Nazi symbols or not?
A scuffle ensued Saturday when members of the National Socialist Movement (Neo-Nazis) found themselves shut out of an anti-immigration Tea Party protest at the Phoenix capitol.
American Citizens United, who organized the Phoenix Tea Party rally, told the Neo-Nazi group that racist messages were not welcome at the demonstration. The Neo-Nazis left, but two returned, standing defiantly on the sidewalk that borders the designated protest area.
When JT Ready, one of the Neo-Nazis tried to unfurl an Adolf Hitler flag, one of the event organizers became enraged and tried to rip the flag from Ready’s hands.
The DSCC’s demagogic message is well-timed, given the ongoing IRS scandal; Democrats hope to suggest a connection between the Tea Party and the Nazi Party by lying about an event from 2009, so they can plant the idea that the IRS’s investigations of the Tea Party were justified.
In sum, the Tea Party and the Nazis were opponents, not allies. Those “radicals wav[ing] signs with Nazi symbols” were unwelcome neo-Nazis, not members of the Tea Party, as the DSCC implies.

The bill, which had already passed the Texas house, enjoyed a bipartisan passage of 28-3 in the Texas senate.
The historic 85-30 vote would allow the carrying of concealed guns, a legislative task compelled by a federal appeals court ruling and precipitated by House Speaker Michael Madigan’s turnabout.

Scandals, scandals, and more scandals. My list so far includes:
1. Benghazi: politics before, politics and apathy during, and politics and a wall of lies and cover-ups afterwards.
2. Fast & Furious: a completely bungled effort to track cartels in Mexico or a deliberate attempt to gin up gun crime as a way to feed anti-gun fervor.
3. IRS: Deliberate targeting of conservative groups and individuals in order to disable them in the lead-up to a tight election.
4. AP: Justice Department eavesdrops on media, with recent news indicating that this wasn’t about national security but was a tit-for-tat step taken because the AP mis-timed releasing a story about a thwarted terrorism plot.
I feel as if I’ve forgotten something. I’m sure there’s something else, but I’ve reached the outer limits of my brain’s capacity for the scary, sordid, disgusting, and illegal.

David Gregory walked? No, Gregory didn’t even have to walk. There was never anything to walk from. Gregory’s felony possession was ignored, period.
The case arose just prior to the decision in the District of Columbia whether to prosecute David Gregory for possessing a 30-round ammunition magazine and showing it on television.
While Gregory was allowed to walk free despite having been warned by the police not to use the magazine on air, the prosecution in NY pressed forward against Haddad, NY Prosecutors to press case against retired special forces soldier in high capacity magazine case.
