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.

Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says. April is generally the worst month of allergy season,

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

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

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
