Did Civil War Just
Become Inevitable?

Canada Free Press, by Erik Rush

So… Barack Obama won re-election to the office of President of the United States, and Republican challenger Mitt Romney has slipped into obscurity faster than any candidate I’ve ever seen. Aside from futile, quasi-navel gazing posturing on the part of Congress over the “fiscal cliff” upon which the American economy is perched, news coverage since the election has been rife with diversion and non-issues.We’re already sick of hearing autopsies of the Romney campaign. Suffice it to say that there is a host of reasons that Romney should not have been the GOP nominee,

What needs to happen is that the freedom loving people of the world need to get together and form a new country. This is a "global" movement to enslave us all. God help us.

History tells us that the battle won this November by the Progressive movement will cost them the War. The political blood spilt in this election will be the seeds of victory in future elections.

Voter fraud is a non-issue.
If it was an issue, then the fact that the guy running for Presidend is a FRAUD in every sense of the word and NOT eligible for the office would have been at least looked into.

It boggles my mind that every Republican with the abiliiy to do something about this travesty.... this defrauding of America... this trashing of our Constitution... has allowed himself to be intimidated into not saying a word.

Why has obama published TWO forged / fake birth certificates ? (Who cares ??)
Why is obama using a FAKE social security numbe (who cares ???)

Here is a guy with a mandate to stay the course and complete the job (which he started 4 years ago) of DESTROYING our Nation and making the life of every single person in America MORE miserable...

and we just let it happen... not even looking or talking about the probability that he is a USURPER !

We really can´t blame obama... he is a low life con man and is going to behave exactly as one would expect a low life con man to behave...
We have to blame ourselves... We have become sheep and have elected a bunch of COWARDS as our "leaders" and representatives.

When the party that has the power to investigate and punish voter fraud is the same party that does all of the voter fraud, thinking that anything will ever be done about voter fraud is a pipe dream.

I guess the Republican´s only hope is to get as good with voter fraud as the Demon-RATS. Of course, the Demon-RATS have decades of experience under their belts, so it´s going to be really hard to catch up.

But it´s a mute point anyway. As soon as NØbama gives blanket amnesty and citizenship to 20,000,000 illegal alliens -- all immediately Demon-RAT voters -- there won´t be a red state left in this country. Plenty of new volunteers (along with the New Black Panthers, La Raza, Planned Parenthood, etc) to join NØbama´s new Brown Shirt Militia. With the best weaponry our tax dollars can buy, and the sheer numbers they can throw at us, and their merciless lack of respect for life (at least for anglo male life), a civil war is just another pipe dream...

The once proud Republican Party was told to sit down and shut up by the Roves and the O´Reily´s of the Faux Conservatives.

I was chastised before on this site about not supporting Romney during the primaries, but this man couldn´t even bring himself to discuss the topics of the day (all I heard was how he could create jobs) much less the issues surrounding the birth certificate, SS number, Frank Marshall, Bill Ayres, and the host of other campaign killers.

I also asked my son who returned from Afghanistan if the military would ever help the government control the citizens in any resurgent movement against tyranny. His answer was yes they would because all the officers are so afraid of losing their jobs and becoming homeless that they would obey the order to arrest us.

From poster #4 above, there was a country started by freedom loving people from all over the world, it´s gone now. RIP USA

Our only remedy now is for the total collapse of the system and the beginning of WIII, only then will the men of this country stand up fight because if they don´t, their lives will be snuffed out and their women and children will be put into slavery, or worse. Without a manufacturing base the run up to this conflict will be so horrible that not even the Progressives will be able to survive.

Solution: begin building your own protection, learn survival tactics. Read up on where to find natural edible plants, and how to purify water. You can only carry so many cans of soup, but knowledge is light and travels fast. Teach your young ones and friends this knowledge; forget counting on the spiritual powers, the lord only helps those who help themselves.

Whether constitutionalists can ever regain the federal government looks difficult - even establishment Republicans avoid the word "constitution." It seems there might be a better shot at regaining control of some states. State nullification of unconstitutional federal law, at the cost of losing federal dollars of course, would be one weapon in the armory.

I beg to differ #8. Bush canned a number of federal prosecutors who would not look into the subject. Which then brought about months and months of caterwauling from the dems and press about politically motivated firings.

Article finally settles down and sort of blames vote fraud. Eh. Maybe. Probably.

But the issue of civil war is something else entirely. Inevitable, no, but credibly possible and soon, maybe. Probably.

I would never, ever have imagined anything like this, even five years ago.

Erik gives a variation of Nader´s observation. The US is a one party state with two major parties.

Or, we have two parties which pretend to differ but act the same after election day.

Or something. And Nader was right. And Erik is right.

BUT! Why bash Romney? He is a decent guy. Or as decent as one can be in that filth.

He ran his campaign. He lost. Obscurity? So what? Maybe he is on a nice vacation.

Why did he lose? Fraud? Doesn´t matter. He lost.

Civil War? The real kind? Forget it. CW is madness. Beer talk. Idiocy.

Washington can´t be restrained or changed that way. It would emerge stronger and more tyrannical.

There is nothing Obama and the Washington establishment would like better than an excuse to simple kill millions they regard as undesirable.

Millions - who for convenience we could label RS, Red Staters - who object to the absolute state.

Anything like violent resistance plays into their strength. The large, well trained, and superbly equipped police and military. They can and do monitor communications and have total control of mass media.

The dozen or so influential conservatives like Rush Limbaugh could be arrested in minutes and in a secret prison by sundown.

In every political group of five in America one of you is a government informer.

You might say the outlook is grim. IMO "grim" is too optimistic.

What can be done instead? I don´t know. Yet trying what can´t work is worse.

The CFP is worth reading. A good rule is to ignore headlines. The writer doesn´t compose them.

Read (and watch on youtube) Catherine Austin Fitts "chrismartenson.com/blog" January 30, 2011: "Straight talk with Catherine Austin Fitts: We are the victims of a financial coup d´etat". At the end of the third paragraph she writes: "Finally, the members of the Administration have no way of guaranteeing their safety and the safety of their families if they defy orders of those who have the weaponry and power to enforce their will by any means necessary". Consider "by any means necessary" as applied to the actions of those who call themselves "government" at least since 1861.

Probably not civil war but maybe secession. I can see a state like Texas trying to secede. Would the Feds fight it? Sure but financially at first. They would stop all the government checks..SS, EPB cards, etc. SS could be handled since there is no money set aside for it anyway. The state would simply start holding the FICA funds it self. The same with the withholding taxes. They would go to the state itself.

Would it be allowed to happen? No. If the seceding state looked like it was going to be successful, you can bet that force would be used. Now whether the military could be made to kill Americans is another question. It didn´t stop them in 1861.

This civil war talk is silly. There are no "red" states and no "blue" states; there are states with a majority of red voters and states with a majority of blue voters. Some of them flip back and forth between election cycles. North Carolina went blue in 2008. It went red in 2012. Maybe it will flip again in four years.

Texas? 41.34% of Texans voted for Obama. Suppose they object to secession or civil war? What are the Texans who voted for Romney going to do with them? Shoot them? Force them out of the state at gunpoint? Order them to move to Michigan or Maine?

The southern states were just as divided in 1861. There are lots of records in my small home town about some of our citizens leaving to move up north when secession was voted for in Georgia. Some of these were prominent citizens who were adamantly against secession. The mountain counties here were pro-union and their delegates voted against secession.

Get enough people mad enough or despairing of what is happening to their country then add looming economic disaster and anything can happen.

Civil Wars are highly impracticable.

Do a modified Galt: Just move out of the cities, live simply, give up the two income model, have lots of kids (with a stay-at-home parent), teach them conservative values. Subsidize your adult children to do likewise.

Doing this you will counter the current demographic trends and also join the 47% who pay no net Federal taxes. Get that up to 85% and this will leave most of the Federal tax bill to the Rich Libs.

Frame’ BLM’s Neil Kornze in a poster

The high-handed, armed sniper-backed Bureau of Land Management, which retreated from Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch on Saturday, will be back. BLM will be back because they never go away. Their harassment campaigns against hard-working land owners and ranchers goes back more than 20 years. For 20 long years, BLM members have worked non-stop at what boils down to trying to frame Rancher Cliven Bundy. It is time to ‘frame’ Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid point man Neil Kornze. Frame him in the kind of poster that identified cattle rustlers down at the local post office in days of yore. That way, Kornze

In the most intense publicly-fought battle against Big Government since the election of Barack Hussein Obama, it’s We the People 1, Bureau of Land Management boss Obama, 0. With their 200 snipers, helicopters, SUVs, snarling dogs and tasers, the fast-talking, high-handed BLM has retreated from the arena. There are some who would say outright that the BLM cut and run, hightailing it off of Cliven Bundy’s ranch, and some would be right. One thing to set the dogs on protesters and taser one or two when your government bosses are backing you up. Quite another when hundreds of folk are driving from hours

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013.

Don’t believe Internet headlines—no matter from which source—warning that Democrats have “major hurdles” after the latest poll. “Former top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod acknowledged Saturday that Democrats face tough challenges in November, following a new Associated Press-GfK poll that shows voters increasingly appear to want Republicans over Democrats to control Congress.” (FoxNews.com, April 6, 2014) Voters out on the hustings for November midterms don’t want donkeys; they don’t want elephants.

While the worst administration in American history has been perfecting the Big Lie that all dissent to their policy stems from conspiracy theorist wackos, they are the biggest conspiracy of all. At this stage of the Fundamental Transformation of America, the wake up call should be glaringly obvious. The administration controls the ‘news’. They control the narrative. They call the shots.

Think of Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama as who they really are: two self-propelled power grabbers of two separate nations singing loudly from the very same choir book. In the identifiable voices now rousing the world in the ‘Red Choir of the Peoples Republic’, Putin is the booming baritone. Musical notes coming from Obama are more of the pipsqueak kind with a multitude of mainstream media voices being the stand-out in the irreverent ‘hymns’ he sings. Their Gregorian-like chant, “O-Bam-Aaaa” sometimes gets lost with the runaway baritone show stealer when performing on stage.

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.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

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

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

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
