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.

Great and frightening to read. Too bad we didn´t have more of this before the turncoat in the White House was elected.

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.

"I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within."

General of The Army Douglas MacArthur
West Point, Class of 1903

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.

Gen. Mattis may be the last of the warrior Generals. Great man. Not some perfumed "warrior monk" like Obama and Paula Broadwell favor. I hope he keeps speaking out and others join him. I will. Retired Colonel.

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.

Perhaps Gen. Dempsey will read this and reflect upon what his job really is and how he has been complicit in degrading the effectiveness of the force.

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

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

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. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

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. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

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

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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
