The characters played by Clint Eastwood have been a bit of a role model for me. Characters like Eastwood’s Harry Callahan, Josey Wales and Will Munny are inspirations in the silent action hero genre.
But as the great Dirty Harry said, “A man’s got to know his limitations”. Sometimes it takes us all a bit too long to know our own.
Since before September 11 patriots have been of one mind to restore their nation to its sanity. Since then we’ve gotten battered with the Dubai ports deal, Medicare D, the so called stimulus package, bank bailouts, cash for clunkers (not to be confused with the GM bailout), Obamacare, civil trials for terrorists, the gun walking scandal, Benghazi and a seemingly endless parade of assaults on the common sense and domestic tranquility of our nation.
A strategic withdrawal from battle is sometimes called for. Now is as bad a time as any for my enemy Multiple Sclerosis to call me to its’ attention.
Patriot producer Tim Sumner and SHREW Anna Bee will keep our good work going at Freedom Radio Network until my return.
Standing your ground while I’m off reconnoitering is a given. I’ll be around. I pray and know you will all stay alert; Mr. Obama never gets tired of finding new ways to screw his own people.
To quote Eastwood’s great Sergeant Highway from HeartBreak Ridge
“You can make it; Don’t give the prick the satisfaction.” ,
When my younger son was four, he was gorgeous. Of course he had his own beautiful ideas as well. Many of these ideas were outstanding, like his first book, “Super Apple” or his own personally coined curse words, “shaggy cookie dough”.
Still as wonderful as he was, he was still a four year old with all its magic and with all its standard benchmarks. For an entire year, he was sure that his Mom knew how to build a real car, but that I was simply cruelly refusing to cooperate and build him one. He insisted in the midst of an Oscar winning performance of tragic betrayal that my lack of cooperation was simply more than he could bear.
And so it is with King Barackus Obamas I. He wants what he wants when he wants it and there is no telling him otherwise. He seems incapable of accepting the reality that he may be the president, but that he is dependent on the cooperation of others to get things done.
Luckily our son grew up. Not so Mr. Obama. His maturation seems to have abruptly halted somewhere in adolescence. Whatever the psychological profile, the man and the presidency are in great need of an adult sense of discipline that has alluded his grasp thus far. We should not expect him to acquire it in the next three years.
God save us.
Its been a rough several years for many Americans. But gratefully through our trials we learn. Indeed, we have learned.
So many patriots took enormous amounts of time away from their families and their professions to work to save their country. We gave our time, our blood and our treasure. We’ve worked within the system and without, often supporting candidates who turned out to be less than stellar while we were the ones often being portrayed as lawless. We are now older, grayer, slower and poorer, for the experience.
And through it all while we furiously worked, planned, cried and prayed; the Lord was in charge. We planned, plotted and marched while He watched and smiled. While the powers that be worried about the power of the Tea Party, they forgot to worry about the power of God.
So while we were all doing our thing, the Lord took the powerful and used their vanity to destroy their plans. He did it on the evening news. He did it on the radio. He did it on the internet. He did it in the public square. He continues the process with a daily avalanche of revelations that continuously demonstrate man’s pathetic limitations. God it seems has a sense of humor.
Who knew that something as simple as pride would be the undoing of our want-to-be slave masters? Who knew that no Tea Party, no wunderkind, no army of conservatives would finally be the undoing of man’s latest plan to enslave man, the ineptly named Affordable Care Act?
Diana West joined me on Freedom Radio to discuss her just released book American Betrayal; The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character.
“American Betrayal is America’s lost history, a chronicle that pits Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight David Eisenhower, and other American icons who shielded overlapping Communist conspiracies against the investigators, politicians, defectors, and others (including Senator Joseph McCarthy) who tried to tell the American people the truth.”
