The Gathering Storm

©2009 drkate


This is a picture of the conditions during the dust bowl of the 1930’s…a familiar time of the people fearing the government.  During the last few months of Texasdarlin’s blog, this photo (or one similar) was on her header.  To me it was a warning as well, a coming storm, to which she passionately worked on exposing.  Not just the birth certificate and citizenship, but ACORN, Odinga, the DNC, so many contributions.

If you look closer at the photograph and I bet you can outline some faces that are bringing the same kind of chaos to America today.

I am pleased to present, with permission of the author, the original private letter written to friends and colleagues in early June of this year warning of the gathering storm America is facing.  The letter made such an impact that it was soon circulated nation-wide with various additions not in the original letter.

Live Free or Die Fighting

Friends & Fellow Americans,

When the storm finally hits (and it will), those of you who supported the Obama administration will be affected as well.  It won’t just be us gun owners or Fair Taxers, or Pro-Lifers that get hit.  You’ll be right there next to us.

You see, you all thought the Conservatives were nut cases.  You know, all of us who believe in God, small government, the Second Amendment, etc.  And you thought you could just go back to sleep after the election was over.  In your world, America will continue as before.  You’ll still have the same rights, the same nice house, the same big screen television – it’s all good.  After all, your high school football team won and the other team lost – go team!  Even if you have bothered to look up from the daily grind since Nov 4th, you dismissed everything that has occurred as “politics as usual” – “the same old stuff”.

In the end, it’ll all be OK won’t it?

Not this time.  There are a growing number of citizens in the US that are ready to fight to shut down the government’s grab of personal freedom, it’s blatant abuse of the constitution, and it’s attempt to replace the American way of life with socialism.  You have to listen carefully to hear them, but they are there.  I won’t start that fight, but when it goes down I will join it.

As for you, why… you’ll be shocked because you didn’t see it coming.  And eventually you’ll be saddened when you see that we have truly lost the way of life with which you grew up.  You’ll be saddened that your children and grandchildren live in a socialist, government-controlled gulag where their every movement from cradle to grave is tracked by the government.  But most of all, you’ll be saddened by the death of friends and relatives who are brave enough to fight and die for something they believe in.

You know, McCain wasn’t much of a candidate.  I’ll give you that.  He was the lesser of two evils for most of us.  I don’t blame you for not voting for him since, at the time, you didn’t know what we all know now.  But at least John McCain was an American.  He was a supporter of the American way of life and he understood that you can’t negotiate with terrorists.  He understood and appreciated the sacrifice made by my father and other members of the Greatest Generation.

Mark my words friends.  All across America groups are forming.  They are forming out of anger and out of desperation at the thought of losing America.  They’re not militia groups, terrorists as the Department of Homeland security would have you believe; they are Americans, loyal to the constitution.  They are mothers and fathers and grandparents.  They belong to groups like the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, the Patriotic Resistance, the Constitution Party, the Young Conservatives, the 9/12 Project, and Grassfire.  Right now they are fragmented, each focused on their own cause.  But sometime in the next two years, our government is going to do something really stupid and these groups will come together.  Watch for it, wait for it…get ready.  It will happen.

When that event happens, whatever “it” is, our great country is going to plunge into chaos for a while.  I pray to God that we make it through that time and emerge a stronger, smarter country.

    Uncovering the bull under the bailout

    Congress put American taxpayers on the hook for $700 billion last year when it approved the massive bailout to paper over the imprudent lending decisions of nine Wall Street giants: Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, State Street and the Bank of NY Mellon. The bailout was essential to save the nation from a complete economic meltdown. Or so insisted President George W. Bush, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    One year later, however, a little-noted report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office questions whether the bailout — known officially as the Troubled Asset Relief Program — saved anything other than the jobs of greedy Wall Street executives and the political hides of their protectors in government.

    “Measuring the effectiveness of TARP’s programs has been an ongoing challenge,” the GAO report said, adding that “any changes attributed to TARP could well be changes that would have occurred anyway” — due to policy interventions, the actions of financial regulators or even natural market corrections. In other words, a year after Congress burdened present and future taxpayers with a debt of immense magnitude, government auditors still can’t say for sure that TARP accomplished anything toward preventing a financial collapse.

    At the height of the bailout hysteria, Paulson appeared on “Face the Nation,” saying he hoped the federal government would be able to recoup most of the TARP funds. But today, both the GAO’s auditors and TARP Inspector General Neil Barofsky say nobody should hold their breath waiting for that repayment.

    In his 256-page report to Congress, Barofsky notes that the Treasury Department’s failure to implement anti-fraud measures, or even to require TARP recipients to report how they used the billions Congress and the Treasury Department gave them, makes it highly unlikely that the $317 billion outstanding — nearly half the TARP total — will ever be returned to taxpayers. Barofsky also threatened to subpoena documents relating to the Treasury Department’s “less-than-accurate statements … concerning TARP’s first investments in nine large financial institutions,” as well as its subsequent refusal to report what hundreds of other TARP recipients did with the funds.

    So there you have it: Treasury officials lied to Congress and the public, and refused to demand even a basic level of accountability from TARP recipients while borrowing hundreds of billions of dollars that taxpayers will eventually have to pay back, plus billions in interest. Incredibly, just Wednesday, President Obama announced a new TARP-like program for small businesses and community banks. The madness in Washington won’t stop until the people completely clean house at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.

      I am imagining in my mind all those greedy bustards (intentional word mispell) lining their Chicago style pay-to-play pockets with our money and a lot of Swiss bank accounts being opened. Reid, Pelosi, Obama, Dodd, Emanuel, etc. Whatever happened with the dudes that were caught trying to slip into another country with suitcases of money. Remember that? The story just fizzled out like all the others.

    I believe that the storm that is coming is from China. They own us. Communism is no longer feared or hated here. Obama makes not bones about his wanting to ‘Change America.’ How better change than to hand us over to China?

    China now has missle capacity to hit us from Cuba and Panama? We are in much bigger trouble than most of us have any idea.

    Maybe the “IT” will be the government takeover and control of the Internet.

    So many people use it. Many depend upon it.

    It’s the only true source of freedom we have left and I just don’t think people will stand for it being regulated!

    Maybe we will hear millions of Howard Beales screaming –

    I am mad as Hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!!!

    I can certainly envision this , and hope we can somehow put a stop to this madness before it ever gets close to that.

    More are awakening daily and realizing the realities many tried to warn them of are manifesting right in front of their own eyes.

    Great Letter, so true..
