Hitting the Ground Running

Give Me Liberty

Entering this year strikes me as a strategic opportunity to continue the national ‘push-back’  against  the obama/socialist politicians’  initiatives,  and also to advance on several other fronts essential to the defense of  self, family, community and state.

I believe we also have to practice and actively engage in developing a vision of what Constitutional Governance is, what it means at every level. All the ‘visions’ we have of the future are of collapse, and while unfortunately realistic, from a quantum perspective, there is an equal opportunity that a different vision can exist at the same time, one that would overcome what might seem inevitable now.

Let’s see what’s up:

  • Logistics Monster (aka, The Daily Crime) and Lame Cherry continue to track the REAL story behind Flight 253, still too close for comfort for Americans, and the CIA, as Obama, Napolitano, Holder, and Panetta begin to fall. Oil for Immigration also has sharp, on-point analysis.  All have articles on extremely relevant daily events.
  • Atlas Shrugs, Jihadwatch, and Creeping Sharia are focusing on this real threat to America. &^$#@*!@ political correctness, as you know. 😡  There is no time for PC.
  • Kerchner v. Obama is up this month before the Philadelphia Federal Appeals Court; no matter what happens, this case will go to the Supreme Court.  Please help defend our liberty to be free from a usurper by supporting this case!  See the ad on the right hand side of this blog to contribute, and thank you in advance.
  • The legs crumbling under the MSM in 2010 will be fueled by our collective boycott of television and print media generated by them and support of other media, including international press.
  • Importantly, we must continue to build our own networks, at the same time acknowledging the need for and developing our own kind of security.
  • Strategic thinking on the 2010 election is required, and, the remedy to the systematic problem of the left’s attack on America will not be resolved by one election. Vigilance works as a motto!
  • No letting up on health care, although we know they are all risking their political careers on this. They think we have forgotten over the holidays.

A primary tool we have is information, self-knowledge…our founding documents, our Faith, personal responsibility, what has been violated, and our role in addressing the deep systemic issues. The works of the Continental Congress–the Articles of Freedom– form the core of the statement of grievances and remedies for them at the State and National levels.

We stand on what seems to be the darkest time of days. But isn’t the darkest hour before the dawn?  And can’t we generate enough energy to enlighten the way?

    I, too, feel 2010 will see many changes for the better. A number of efforts are taking shape and people are becoming more active–the giant is coming awake. I do miss some of the once active sources of information such as MissTickly, but I understand the risks and cost incurred.
    Isn’t it interesting that so many players showed up in Hawaii recently—BHO, Pelosi, Palin, Limbaugh and who knows else. Some looking for things, some looking to hide some things. Who knows.
    I feel the disemination of the results of the Constitutional Convention will play a significant role’ in the events of 2010.

    Just a few things we personally have started. For the first time in over a decade, I changed my voter registration from ‘Unaffiliated’ to a major party so I can participate in the caucus and primary process. Our first county-wide meeting is next week.

    Contact your local Sheriff’s office to set up an appt. w/ the Sheriff. They have some programs to help you and LOVE to have support from the citizens. We are implementing a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) in our neighborhood. Not only will this help neighbors in trouble, but create new opportunities to network and spread the word.

    Consider copying the first one or two pages of the Articles of Freedom and mailing copies to every one on your Christmas card list. We can reach millions if enough people take this on.

    I welcome all suggestions for ACTION from your very smart readers.

    Congress is obligated to call an Article V Convention. The public record shows all 50 states have submitted 750 applications for an Article V Convention. The texts of the applications can be read at http://www.foavc.org. Congress has refused to obey the Constitution and call a convention as it is mandated to do.

    What is needed is for all members of the public to demand of Congress–what gives you the right to veto the Constitution? Demand a convention be called. The states have the right answers in their applications. All that is needed now is to force Congress to do what they are required to do.

    Bachmann: House Preserves ACORN’s Role in TARP II
    Washington, D.C., Dec 10, 2009 –

    (Washington, D.C.) U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-06), member of the House Financial Services Committee, made the following statement after the Democrat Leadership denied the entire House an opportunity to vote on her amendment to prevent ACORN from participating in the Consumer Financial Protection Agency’s Oversight Board. The Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA) is an expansive new government bureaucracy with far-reaching powers to make decisions for consumers about the kinds of mortgages, small business loans, and other financial products they may access. The Oversight Board will be tasked with advising the Agency’s director on strategies and policies.

    “An organization that has repeatedly shown an inability to adhere to even the most basic standards of ethics should not have a role in overseeing our nation’s financial system,” said Bachmann. “By rejecting consideration of my amendment, the Democrat Majority protected ACORN instead of American taxpayers and investors.”

    In recent months, the IRS, U.S. Census Bureau, and Congress have taken numerous actions to sever ties with ACORN. In fact, less than two months ago, the House Financial Services Committee accepted another amendment offered by Bachmann that would prevent ACORN from serving on a similar board established in the exact same bill under consideration this week.

    “There is a clear consensus amongst the American people that ACORN is unfit to receive federal funds and partner with federal organizations. The Democrat Leadership’s decision today robs Congress from having the opportunity to take an up-or-down vote on my amendment and keep ACORN out of our financial markets,” said Bachmann.

    This week, I sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, along with 108 of my colleagues, urging him not to extend the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) into 2010. While there will be ups and downs along the way as our economy struggles to regain its footing, TARP was passed with the intention of providing immediate support and emergency stabilization to our financial system. And yet, we see the President and the Democrat Majority in Congress floating the idea of paying for a second economic “stimulus” with TARP funds, a blatant distortion from TARP’s original purpose. TARP is not and was never intended to be a revolving door slush fund that the government can tap into as they see fit. Instead, the federal government’s first priority should be paying back the taxpayers.

    What’s it gonna be. Are you going to choose Liberty or are you going to choose tyranny? It’s your choice. What’s it gonna be?

    Yes, it matters!

    This is a GREAT summary of FACTS that you can send to supporters and non-supporters alike. It may help to open some eyes for those whose heads have been stuck in the sand…

    Happy New Year, Everyone!

    dk – it appears some of your posters have read the latest post over at jbjd’s site. For purposes of full disclosure, I’ve copied the following comment I just left over there.


    jbjd – Happy New Year! I sincerely wish you and yours a fruitful 2010. You deserve it.

    Over the last 18 months, I’ve had the opportunity to learn much from you and have valued your work and the passion you put into it. Trust that your efforts have not and will not go unnoticed. Thank you for your devotion to the law and providing us patriots the opportunity to address these extremely serious matters with our respective state A’sG.

    As you know, I took the lead here in Virginia to inform our state AG. Fortunately, he is retiring in two weeks and I’ll have a new shot at our new AG. Trust me, he will be hearing from me. My efforts are only just now beginning which you will be informed about at the appropriate time.

    In the meantime, I’d like to address two items in your post that concern me and the overall impression of your words. Because we have spent a countless number of hours together, I trust I can be candid with you.

    First, you end your post by stating “We are so stupid” but several paragraphs up you appear to dismiss Mr. Shultz for his efforts to raise our awareness about the abuses made to the constitution by our elected leaders. You can’t have it both ways. We were either not giving credence to Mr. Shultz’s concerns, as well as a plethora of others, or we chose to embrace them and tried to do something about it. Obviously, Mr. Shultz has dedicated 15 years or more of his life trying to shake us out of our coma. Were you listening to him? Did you take him and his efforts seriously? Something tells me you didn’t. I confess that I didn’t. Hell, I didn’t even know about him, but just b/c “we” or “many of us” have awoken in the last 18 months doesn’t make his efforts any less important than yours. I find your tone condescending and I’m hopeful you will correct me if I am wrong if this wasn’t your intent.

    Secondly, I would like to invite you to explain why on earth you would belittle the effort being made by the hydrologist regarding Article II. What, only an attorney could do this work? A judge? A professor of Constitutional law? What you fail to take into account is that this hydroligist holds a Ph.D in the hard sciences. This hydrologist has been taught the rule that nothing is a proven fact unless substantiated and tested by her peers. Her education and skill set is most appropriate to take on such a monumental effort. To be candid, and you’ve heard me say this before, it’s the lawyers that have screwed us and gotten us into this mess NOT the hydrologists. So my money is on you, Mr. Shultz and the hydrologist. But again, I invite you to elaborate a bit more on why you found it necessary to add that morsel of information to a post that in tone is awfully condescending. I’d welcome greater clarity and you are most welcomed to bitch slap me if you wish. It certainly won’t be the first time and hopefully, not the last.

    Please know that I will copying this and posting it over at the hydrologist’s site as well. I’m feeling pretty confident, call it a hunch, that she won’t be wandering over this way anytime soon.

      d2i, I am actually devastated by jbjd’s column. I don’t know what I did to deserve such ridicule and contempt; nor do I understand how she could ridicule the honest work of citizens in focusing on that ‘handful’ of issues that happen to be every article and amendment of the Constitution. I am truly saddened, and angry.

      She won’t be publishing my response, but in defense of myself, I did comment. Thanks for the heads up. 😦 *sigh*

      • 12 d2i January 3, 2010 at 6:50 am

        That’s a shame. I know when I read it, I too was offended by her condescending tone of you and the CC2009 efforts. It hurt me deeply.

        jbjd’s work is impeccable and highly valued and she is correct when stating that the DNC perpetrated fraud on “we” the voters. Corrective action should take place. I remain hopeful that my new AG will take action, that is, if no one has gotten to him yet.

        However, it’s becoming clearer to me that jbjd has been a possible victim of other’s hubris agendas. Please don’t take this as an excuse for her unbecoming behavior towards you, Mr. Shultz or the fine patriots of the CC2009. It’s not. Instead, I’m trying to understand the motivation behind the whipping, and I have come to believe its roots are in anger. And I believe she’s come by this honestly.

        But I am saddened by her actions. It only serves to isolate her further and honestly, we need her sharp mind and wit. The jbjd I’ve come to know is a lovely woman with great talent and a bright future. Peace, d2i

        PS – I’m sending you a goodie today so check your email box. would love to chat.

        As one of the “stupid” people I first hesitated to way in on this but I really am trying to shake off that mentality of thinking my opinion would not matter.

        First of all I do not post much here only because my thoughts are already expressed by the time I read comments.

        drkate, I followed you from Texas Darlin you have always been gracious, kind and above all fair in your replies to those who really did not deserve your time of day.

        Once again I am one of the ‘stupid ones” so I really could not tell you if the person in question is a genius or not, but I know that does not matter. What matters is there seems to be a pattern with this individual, I have seen in other sites for what ever reason the need to be seen as the only one who really understands the issue is extremely insulting, but again I am one of the ‘stupid ones’.

        At this time in our Country we want thinkers of course but more importantly we need do’ers. You drkate are so far and above the other individual in that department that there is no way to compare.

        I am sorry for those here on this blog who have had their feelings hurt by someone they considered a friend sadly that is unfortunate but seems to happen to all of us from time to time.

        I tried real hard to check for grammar and spelling errors, not always my strong suit, that of which Diamond Tiger will attest.

        • 14 d2i January 3, 2010 at 10:50 am

          Very well stated and your grammar is spot on! And no, you are not stupid by any stretch of the imagination. Take that thought and throw it away. It does not belong to you.

  10. 15 no-nonsense-nancy January 2, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Dr. Kate, Happy New Year!! I look forward to another year of reading your wonerfull posts and soaking in all of your knowledge. Thank you again for al that you do!!

  11. 16 Papoose January 3, 2010 at 11:09 am

    Dr. Kate, I have been following you since I met you almost 2 years ago at NQ. If I may chime in, I was fuming when I dropped by jb’s for some enlightenment. Wrong.

    I admit, much of what she expressed was a bit over my head, however, I know when my brain and heart are not in concert. The pangs I felt were a mix of pure condescension and dismissal. Its true, so I will say further, I felt someone was in need of a little attention. I didn’t want to bring that slop over here, but I very glad you are aware.

    Thank you for your generosity in time and effort in helping us along. It is wonderful to wake up each morning and realize that I was born in this Country, in the Cradle of Liberty and in this Day and Age. What a beautiful fate!

    (Bad Bye, jb. Good Luck and Take Care. Honestly.)

    Does anyone think it would be useful, or have ideas, for the tea party throng to become more pointed by picking individual targets rather than marching on Washington? I was thinking along the lines of Ghandi and passive resistance. Pick one definitive action for their particular state to rail against, then show up en masse and have a sit in. Then pick another, etc. Shutting down a freeway would just consist of hundreds of people plunking themselves down in a folding chair on the freeway for the day, same thing with an Amtrak line, same thing with an errant Congressman (have a sit in of thousands around Ben Nelson’s house, or Mary Landrieu, etc.). Granted, some would get tossed into jail for the night, but there is no way they could arrest thousands. The Tea Party organizers could pick one spokesman for each state, come up with a plan, and then call them to action for various ploys. Civil disobedience, I believe, is the thing most feared by this govt at this juncture when all our liberties are being taken away.
