About tphobbitwoman

I'm a US Citizen sick of politicians who name call those who want our government to adhere to the Constitution. I'm tired of politicians who are corrupt and want to demonized good people who have built this nation. Power is all they know and want. Integrity is a precious virtue sorely missing from those who call themselves 'public servants.' Servants for themselves to be sure.

Ron Paul Losers

I expect vitriolic comments and the same old tiresome arguments for their dogged determination to champion their candidate who lost.

I like Ron Paul. He has the courage to say what he truly means. That is rare in politics these days. Those who pander to causes and voters have little to brag about except their lack of principles. I agree with Paul about the financial mess we’re in, the gold standard, and auditing the Fed. I do not agree with his foreign policy positions.

We live in a historic time in our country placing us on the threshold of choosing liberty or tyranny. There are no other choices and that is where the staunch Ron Paul supporters lose. We only have two real choices in November to make that choice. I’m in the same position. My candidate didn’t win.

Earlier today I saw the same old tired attitudes and excuses. One commenter on Facebook used Bill Maher, of all people, for his argument not to see “2016: Obama’s America.” He gave Maher’s explanation of why he wouldn’t see it. That’s your frame of reference? Bill Maher? He wouldn’t even avail himself of the long researched information presented chronologically in the movie concerning our present President’s background. Bill Maher was good enough for him. It makes you wonder how radical some Paul supporters have become.

What happened at the “good old boy” GOP convention was an outrage. The rules change and how it was handled was ghastly. Boehner and Sununu have lost all credibility with many Republicans. Mine was gone years ago. Many will leave the party because of it and even more will actively support and work for a NEW political party that upholds our Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers. I advocate a new party AFTER the election. The “chicken-neck” Republicans who have dined at the trough for generations in Washington D.C. must go or be replaced. The GOP will implode when conservatives and libertarians flee the party. Many are dissenting now. Read “Pavlov’s Republicans.”

The dilemma for the Ron Paul supporters is:

1. Do I continue to support Paul in this election knowing I can’t win and let tyranny reign?

2. Do I take my ball and go home, not vote at all, and support tyranny?

3. Do I stamp my feet, vote for Obama and give him power by fiat and support tyranny?

4. Do I use the facade of  “principles” as my excuse not to TRY and save this nation for our children, grandchildren and future generation? Or, at least give them the chance to fight for liberty should I fail at this juncture?

5. Have I REALLY thought about what it means to have Obama for another four years? With Obama’s track record would I even continue to have freedom to speak of Mr. Paul’s point of view?

6. OR, do I take a deep breath, hold my nose, vote for the only other choice, work to get Constitutionalists in the Senate and House, and work like my life depended on it, (if your senior citizen with Medicare it literally does) then hold the new administrations feet to the fire?

An implacable position makes Paul supporters losers. Why you ask? They will lose when they choose to stay at home or write in their candidate’s name making the CHANCE for freedom regained, lost. The man they so admire is an older gentleman. His life span, in all probability, is not much longer; much like mine. Their hero will no longer be with them. The idol they so admire will be gone. Now the rumor is the Paul supporters will try and suppress the vote for Romney. I can think of no better way to leave a legacy of denigration for a fine man than to demolish the chance at saving our children’s future. They will lose on all sides. They will lose him, their freedom and they will help to denigrate Mr. Paul’s legacy.

Yes, I agree with the Ron Paul supporters and Mark Levin that we have lost our freedoms. Will we have a chance, JUST THE CHANCE, to regain them under Barack Obama? The answer is a resounding NO! The recent detainment of a Facebook user, former marine Brandon Raub, without warrant or arrest, taken to a psychiatric facility until the Rutherford Institute stepped in as his legal counsel, is one indication that your freedoms are one electoral vote away from you.

The REAL questions is:

Do I give away the CHANCE to turn it around so I can continue to work for the things Congressman Ron Paul espoused or do I hand it to a despot willing to take even your freedom to voice Mr. Paul’s positions away? That’s the question. A CHANCE to redeem our freedom or NO chance at all and irrecuperable tyranny.

Like Mark Levin said, if the GOP doesn’t listen, we won’t have to do anything; it will implode. Levin’s audio is what changed my mind.

That’s right. Surprise, surprise I held the same position, however, the logic with which Mr. Levin states his position turned me 180 degrees. I beg good citizens who support Ron Paul not to give up the CHANCE.

Mark Levin: I’d Rather Fight With A Moderate Republican Than Give Obama a Second Term!

Fidel and Barack Paralleled by Cuban Immigrant

Raul E. Jimenez – Guest Author

Raul is an acquaintance on Facebook. He is a Cuban immigrant and has shared many concerns about our country and our current President. After viewing “2016: Obama’s America” he sees parallels between Fidel Castro and Barack Obama.  His words are published with permission. Please note the video of Jon Voight at the end, who agrees, in part with Raul.

Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, is a product of his family environment in Kenya, Honolulu, and Indonesia. Such is the conclusion one can glean from the movie 2016, which I saw in my local theater yesterday. Barack’s mother was, in Cuban slang, a “bollo loco,” a would-be hippie with intellectual capacity for loving, disruption, flowers, ideals, and marrying revolutionaries. She married Barack Senior in Kenya, gave birth to Barack Jr., then left Barack Senior when he turned out to be a noisy revolutionary with several women in tow. Barack’s father was a collectivist drunk, and yet his ex-wife continued to admire him and brainwash Barack Jr. on the greatness of his father.  This continued even after she remarried. Thus, were born Barack Jr.’s dreams from an absent father who hated British Colonials and Imperialists.

Barack Jr. learned left leanings while mentored by Frank Marshall Davis (at the urging of Barry’s grandfather, another communist) in Honolulu. Later in his life Barack Jr. states in the audio version of his book, “Dreams from My Father,” he looked for the company and advice from revolutionaries and communist terrorists of whom his father would have been proud, i.e. Ayers, Reverend Wright, and a communist revolutionary professor at Harvard, a Brazilian by the name of Unger.

The movie ties up nicely how a dysfunctional background twisted little Barack into adopting goals to destroy the USA as a Colonialist country. He came to believe the USA and England to be countries that owed the third world. In Barack’s mind, as much as in his father’s, western countries would exploit riches in the poor countries and take them home to build products they would in turn sell back to the poor. Barack’s real beliefs are that the USA and the West, as well as Israel, owe the third world and must pay for their sins. The thoughts are extended to individuals who, in Barack’s view of the world, are not entitled to the earnings from their products, since these were illegally and unfairly produced.

This all reminded me of Fidel Castro in Cuba, where I was born and lived when the Revolution took place around Christmas of ’58. I have often wondered what made Castro hate his countrymen to the point of ruining the island. The explanation, as in the case of Obama, can be found in his youth.  Castro is the bastard child of a Spanish-born Castro who owned a farm in Eastern Cuba. The old man married a younger, sexier woman, as Spaniards often did in the Caribbean. Social rejection ensued for the children as Cuban society wasn’t kind to children born out-of-wedlock. Castro became what in Cuba was known as an “acomplejado” (someone with some sort of emotional complex). Even as a bastard and, an ”acomplejado,” Fidel managed to get a good education (Jesuits in Santiago, and the University of Havana). He developed an impetuous attitude and a violent spirit against anybody who contradicted him (being the subject of bastard type jokes wasn’t easy). Contrary to Barack he got by through bullying and confrontation.

Barack grew up as a non-confrontational Black seeking help from the Whites he hated. Barack used racial subterfuges and his understanding that Americans felt guilty for slavery. Castro used overtly crooked political tactics while at the University and turned students and others against dictator Batista who was turned into a symbol of injustice and unfairness. Eventually, Castro succeeded by making everyone in Cuba believe that his Revolution would return the prosperous country and republic to democratic ways. He enjoyed support from the US State Department, the CIA, and drunken Hollywood personalities like Errol Flynn. The use of bombs, guerrilla tactics, and Molotov cocktails, demoralized Batista’s Army and they succumbed to the revolutionary assault. The result? Fidel Castro turned Cuba into a Fourth World country that lacks everything from oil to soap and food. The island gets oil for free from Venezuela’s dictator Chavez. Once in power, Fidel dreamt of destroying the United States.

Decades later, Barack Obama has used stealth tactics to easily travel an otherwise difficult road from total unknown (a man who never ran anything and hardly worked for a living) to US Senator and eventually President of the United States in just a couple of years. Fidel took several years of violent outbursts and guerrilla/urban warfare to get to his goal while Barack accomplished in it but a few. Once in power, Barack dreams of destroying the US Constitution and has usurped the means to do it.

As the movie 2016 clearly shows, Barack’s re-election in 2012 would result in the destruction of Israel and a much diminished USA by 2016. Collectivism would replace our American Republic. The dreams of Barack, adopted from his father, would replace our Founder’s American Dream.

Dinesh D’Souza, the movie maker and narrator, shared the same anti-colonialism environment Barack Obama suffered as a child and yet he became a productive, intellectual analyzer of politics and social conditions in a pro-American way. Dinesh’s family, I believe, shared a decency and concept of order that helped the young man to turn into a productive citizen of the United States. Castro and Obama share a similar dysfunctional cast of characters in their early lives and this turned them toward corrupt efforts and deceptive techniques to implement Marxist governments in their countries.

Luckily, in the USA, the effort is not yet complete. If we don’t vote this disastrous impostor out of the White House the USA will become another Cuba, an island today reduced to the disastrous consequences of communism. The movie’s conclusion is obvious: stop Obama from being elected in 2012 or face a defeated country in 2016.

Jon Voight agrees with Raul.

Free-Market Cat vs Socialist Cat

Odd title isn’t it. Remember that old phrase “cool cat?”  OK I’m showing my age. Our President IS a socialist cat and it’s not cool.

We’re helping a stray cat now.  She’s been here for about two weeks as we try to find the owner or a new home.  She’s earning her keep by taking care of the field mice and unfortunately some the birds we like to feed.  We think she believes it’s her job to keep the pests out.  She’d make a great companion or a ranch cat.  She’s loving, non-aggressive, and just wants security and love. She’s willing to work for her room and board.

The situation brings back memories of the two stray cats we adopted.  La Gata was in sad shape when she cried in pain at our doorstep.  Starving to death she looked as if she came from one of Hitler’s death camps.  We gave her milk and a little food.  She was so weak she could only drink or eat very little amounts, then rest.  The rule was she was not to come in the house. As weeks went by, she could go in the garage. YA right!  La Gata was looking different and we soon realized she was a he and was renamed Gato.  He lived for 16 years under the care of our family.  He recovered to be “the most beautiful cat” the groomers had ever seen. At the peak of his recovery he weighed 18 pounds.  We affectionately said he looked like Orson Wells.

As he assimilated to rules and gained more freedom in the house, he acted according to his feline instinct by marking his territory.  Straight for the wall he aimed.  I screamed and chased him out the slider to the back yard.  Gato was so traumatized he had made me angry, he quickly ran to the back fence, caught a bird, kept it in his mouth and mewed to bring it in as a gift to make amends.  I told him, “it’s a nice bird , but it’s not coming in the house.”  It’s as if he understood every word.  He quickly spit it out and cried for mercy.  I couldn’t help but laugh.  He stayed out for a while longer.  He was  a free market cat.  He needed something, went and got it on his own, and wanted to share with us in the only way he knew.  It was his bird, he worked for it, he earned it. Our second younger stray on the other hand showed her colors.

Shadow saw the bird-gift and promptly picked it up and took it around the side door of the garage and ceremoniously presented it at the kitchen door.  She was taking credit for something someone else had accomplished. She was the socialist cat. She hoped to gain from someone else’s work. Had something happened to us she may not have been able to survive on her own.  That is how it is with socialists.  They are not self-sufficient.  What’s the old saying — the best way to help a man is not to give him a fish but to teach him how to fish?

Shadow grew and matured and learned from Gato that taking care of herself was the better idea.  Gato’s affection toward Shadow taught her many things. He would care for her, defend her, and show her how things worked. Praise and gifts were more readily accepted if she won them herself.  Consequently, on several occasions she would whine outside the slider to come in, and lo-and-behold she would open her mouth and release a live butterfly.  It was something to see.  She did not hurt it, bat it or play with it, she just presented her live gift, earning her much praise.

It makes me wonder why our President was not taught to be self-sufficient and why it’s acceptable to take the fruit of other’s labor for himself and his friends. What lacked in his upbringing that makes him less of a man?

Simple, weak analogy, yes.  We don’t offer anyone a favor by simply handing them things.  A need that cannot be met because of circumstances must always be helped with generosity.

Our President says “work” should not be required of able-bodied persons collecting welfare from the citizens of this country who have worked to provide for their families.  He is what psychologists call an enabler, what political intellectuals call a socialist. He has never worked for a paycheck a day in his life or run a business.  He takes from others who have worked for it, gives it to himself and to his friends.  He buys friends with our money.  He is not one who learns. He’s the antithesis of a true American President. He is the antithesis of John F. Kennedy and the American work ethic. The new movie documentary by Gerald Molen, Oscar-winning producer of Schlinder’s list, gives a glimpse of why this man is what he is.  The movie “2016: Obama’s America” is playing now in theaters across the country.  Yesterday, it was the number one box office hit to the surprise of Hollywood.

He is the socialist cat. He’s one that doesn’t learn. He’s in the position of the Presidency because of the very people and country he hates. He has been given an opportunity. He is ungrateful. He’s a taker. He believes he’s entitled to what others have and he takes it without a blink of concern or shame. He is the socialist cat and it’s not “cool.”

A Helping Hand? Can You Help?

The economy is one of the worst of our generation.  Most of us know of hurting individuals or families.

Yesterday, I was given heartbreaking news from another friend.  Two years ago they lost their business due to the poor economy. Her 65-year-old husband found other work at a smaller wage and he is limited by ruptured discs that the Veterans administration refuses to repair. Last year their son lost their first grandchild hours after birth. They are still working through the grief.  THEN, on Friday a knock came on their door. It was the Sheriff’s office.  They were presented with papers they had NO idea was coming.  No prior notification, or warning.  Bank of America placed their home on the auction block and they were now without a home and someone else is now the new owner. Bank of America seemed to be working with them. They were making lowered payments and adding more as they could. They were scraping by paying for utilities and, believe it or not, only $200 a month for food. The roof over their head was the most important for their 18-year-old autistic daughter. They are now soon to be homeless. They’ve contacted all agencies to no avail at this time.

As a believer in the Bible I take seriously that we are to be self-sufficient if possible, help others who aren’t, and others who are temporarily in a tough time. The Thomas family has always lived by the same standard. Now they are the hurting ones. I believe this is a time to consider:

Galatians 6:2 (ASV)  Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.   The Lord himself spoke of those who act unjustly toward someone in scathing words:     Luke 11:46 (NASB77)  But He said, “Woe to you lawyers as well! For you weigh men down with burdens hard to bear, while you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers.

They need our help.  I pray none of those reading this are ever in their circumstances.  The Thomas family has a strong faith in the Lord. Their faith and our prayers is all that is seeing them through now. They have asked for nothing. They have always been self-sufficient; the ones helping others. However, I asked their permission to ask you for help.  They have no family of means or location to help.

Can you help them? Will you help them?  At least they can pack and store their personal belongs until they can find affordable, safe housing.  I’m not asking for much, just a little. If this circulates to good caring people, we may just help to create a mini-miracle.  Please pray about it and, if possible, use a special created PayPal link using your credit card or PayPal account to help bear their burden.  With much appreciation and prayer for blessings upon you.

THOMAS FAMILY HELP FUND          (Funds collected by Christian America Coast to Coast)

Blessing to all who can help.  If it’s impossible to financially help, please pray.

UPDATE: THE FAMILY FOUND OUT YESTERDAY BANK OF AMERICA SOLD THEIR LOAN AND THEY WERE NEVER NOTIFIED.

It’s A Matter of Trust

When trust is broken, whether it be a personal or business relationship, it is very difficult for it to be restored. Many times it is arduous work on both parties and many times impossible.

I can’t imagine the broken trust between Supreme Court Justices, Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Kennedy by Chief Justice John Roberts.  Try to place yourselves in their positions.  A man, who by all accounts, voted with them to strike down the individual mandate and perhaps the whole law, changed his vote at the last momentThe last moment.  Credible information has surfaced this is exactly what happened.  How do you trust a man or woman like that?  Do you question their integrity? Do you question their fortitude?  Does Roberts think it will be forgotten?

As a citizen, I will NEVER trust Chief Justice John Roberts again.  He stated he was a strict constructionist concerning our Constitution.  That is not true.  Either he out-and-out lied or caved under pressure.  He appears to be a political animal like the liberals on the court. This is the third disappointment given to us by Republican presidents.  John Paul Stevens was a disaster, Souter who gave away private property rights was a disaster, and now John Roberts who, for all intense and purposes, placed an IED under the Constitution is a disaster. There is no disaster relief agency or emergency services to repair the damage.  The Democrats and progressives are laughing at the GOP and their choice man who they were able to turn.

Trust is a precious commodity.  It is a pearl among relationships.  In our most difficult days, it is those we trust whom we call, or visit for counsel or comfort. Trusting in man, this man in particular, is in vain.  I believe this scripture is one we need to consider.

Psalm 146:3 (NKJV)
3 Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

If a man’s decisions are not thought through in the first instance, then he is unstable.  When it affects the lives of millions of people it is close to criminal.

John Roberts cannot be trusted.  I would hate listening to arguments for the sake of rendering a just opinion while sitting next to this man knowing he cannot be trusted.  This smacks of the same intellectual dishonesty of John Kerry when in his infamous words, “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.”

Then again we have to ask ourselves. Are we to blame for this? Maybe not directly, yet in our attitudes we are. We look to politicians, political parties, and other institutions of men to make us feel secure and that justice for those governed will prevail.  It has not been so in history and it is certainly not so in America.   We are given an admonition in the book of Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 17:5 (NKJV)
5 Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD. “

Good men and women are hard to find.  Even they can slip; however, a servant of the people and this nation’s Constitution doesn’t have that luxury.  If an irreparable mistake is made, you have denied those principles you vowed to uphold and have set up a tyranny that will imprison our children forever.

We can’t trust the Republican candidates for the Supreme Court. We can’t trust you Chief Justice John Roberts.  That is now your legacy.

I truly feel for the men who will be in that court room in October.  They now know Roberts can’t be trusted.  He makes decisions like a man toss to and fro by winds and no anchor of principle to hold him. What an arduous job it will be for them here on out.

IT’S A MATTER OF TRUST.

Olympia Snowe Killer of Freedom

Many of us will have forgotten it was a Republican who foisted Obamacare upon the American people.  Her vote brought it out of committee to the senate floor for a vote.  Had she not voted for this bill, it would have died.  Olympia Snowe’s legacy will forever be the demise of our freedom and government so out of control that it will shackle all generations after us.  The GOP does not have high ground to stand on.  They are the party of the good old boy establishment.  Trent Lott who said,

 “We don’t need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples,” Lott said in an interview. “As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them.”

It’s easy to see Mr. Lott doesn’t stand with citizens who are tired of being shackled with over spending and regulations.  NO!  He likes keeping his power and burdening the American people as long as he has his.

Lindsey Graham evoked Jesus Christ as his reason for voting for Elena Kagan.  See Michelle Malkin’s article.

Orrin Hatch openly admitted, “I despise these people,” referring to Freedom Works and tea party citizens hoping to remove him from office.  Once again the good old boy mentality rages when they are threatened by the lowly citizen.

The votes giving the President his “traditional right” to have who he wants on the Supreme Court of the United States is an affront to every freedom loving person who lives under the flag of this country.  The senator who votes a freedom killing bill out of committee is an affront to all citizens who love our Founding Fathers and Constitution.

Today America may have died and I see no real help coming from the GOP.  Romney is Obama-lite.  I don’t trust him.  But what is our choice? If we leave Obama in place we will be full-blown Communists by the time he ends his reign.   The GOP will only slow the demise.  The only hope was to remove people like Hatch, Graham, Snowe and those of their ilk.  I don’t hold much hope.

Those who voted for Barack Obama because they wanted to be part of history have done exactly that.  They have become partners with weak-kneed justices and politicians who long ago forgot their oath of offices to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, as written, to protect our Republic.

My neighbors voted for this man.  Now some regret it.  Too late!  You’ve stolen my grandchildrens’ future, freedom, and economic prosperity.

I believe the quote from Scott Horton, in Harper’s Magazine, July 2007 says it well:

As Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention, on September 18, 1787, a certain Mrs. Powel shouted out to him: “Well, doctor, what have we got?,” and Franklin responded: “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Like many of the Founding Fathers, he was intensely concerned that the democratic institutions they were crafting would deteriorate over time. In particular, they were concerned—and talked ceaselessly during the convention about the risk that, under pressures and exigencies of war, a tyrant would collapse their system into something closer to the monarchy that they had just defeated. Over the intervening 220 years, the republic has maintained itself, though not without close calls. And today, while we face what may be the gravest challenge in the nation’s history, our media will serve up the next chapter in the life of Paris Hilton.

Little did we know the “war” would be within our borders perpetrated by our own government against its citizens.  Olympia Snowe was part of that war against us.  Her legacy of death to this Republic will live on.  Never forget her.  Never forget she cared not for us or our children.  She cared only for power.
