Descendents Of Revolutionists And Rebels … J. D. Longstreet

A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Sometime ago I mused:Longstreet Commentaries Logo with SWORD and SHIELD
Change is not always good.  This “changed” America is definitely not as good as the America we had before we decided to exchange freedom for socialism.
Today, Americans are just beginning to awaken and learn the nightmare they are experiencing is not a nightmare one experiences during REM sleep.  In fact, they learn, to their utter surprise, they are NOT sleeping.  This nightmare is NO DREAM.  It is REAL.  And, Americans who THOUGHT they wanted, and yes, even NEEDED change brought it on.
Many of the votes that were cast for “change” back in 2008 were votes from young people who had no idea what they were trading and what they were getting for the trade. They are the product of a public education system in America now almost totally ruled over by the political left, which still seeks the Nirvana of Utopia through socialism.  After 12, or more, years in the public education system, then 2, 4, or 6 more years in those bastions of liberalism/socialism we refer to as colleges and universities, is it any wonder their Pavlovian response in the voting booth was to pull all the levers by the names of the candidates who were decidedly left-wing candidates? Hardly!  They were simply reacting to the stimuli implanted in their malleable minds as they made their way through an education system designed to do just that.
And now we are watching our country collapse around us. 
Those of us who knew socialism’s sad story of lies, deceit, and destruction are not surprised at America’s perilous position today.  We knew it would happen. We have watched socialism nearly from its birth.  We watched socialism’s struggle to grow as it murdered its host countries all the while.  Like a physician trying to heal a patient, by draining the patient’s body of all its blood, socialism drains a nation of its life-giving force and leaves it a broken shell of its former self. Even as robust a nation as Russia required assistance from former enemies, just to survive, after throwing off the bonds of socialism a few short years ago.
Pope Pius XI once said: “It is wrong to withdraw from the individual and commit to the community at large what private enterprise and industry can accomplish.  So, too, it is an injustice, a grave evil, and a disturbance of right order for a larger and higher organization to arrogate to itself functions which can be performed efficiently by smaller and lower bodies.”
Now we are observing this “wrong,” and this “injustice,” Pope Pius XI warned of, play out right before our eyes right here in America.
The “old” America was truly “something else!”  She was a dream.  She was a land of unlimited opportunities and horizons that went on forever.  She was the envy of the world!
Americans were optimistic people who threw themselves into the task of firing the furnace of the engine of democracy and delighting in the rewards of their own labor. The “American Dream” was so big and so multi-faceted that no one could even describe it!
One British author, John Keegan, described America this way:
“Left to themselves, Americans build, cultivate, bridge, dam, canalize, invent, teach, manufacture, think, write, lock themselves in struggle with the eternal challenges that man has chosen to confront, and with an intensity not known elsewhere on the globe.
Bidden to make “War” their work, Americans shoulder the burden with intimidating purpose.  If I were obliged to define the American mystery, I would say it is the ethos - masculine, pervasive, unrelenting - of work as an end in itself.  War is a form of work, and America makes war in a particularly workmanlike way.  I do not love war; but I love America!”  - John Keegan, author of “Fields of Battle: The Wars for North America,”  a British military historian, lecturer, and journalist.
Mr. Keegan had it right  This is what America used to be like. And for those of us who STILL remember her, as she was, today’s “changed” America  is a bitter pill to swallow!
Theodore Roosevelt  said: "The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life."
The renown men above speak of an America hardly recognized today.  We have forgotten as President  Dwight D. Eisenhower  said:  " Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine."
We have forgotten as President Harry Truman once said:  "America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand."
Where is our revolutionist spirit, our rebellious spirit?  Where is our courage, our imagination, our determination?  Where is it?
We have forgotten that we are the off-spring, the children, of heroes -- not mythological heroes but real, flesh and blood, men and women who stood, head and shoulders, above the remainder of the human population on this earth.
Former Presidential Candidate, Mitt Romney , during the latest presidential campaign said:  "And the American people are the greatest people in the world. What makes America the greatest nation in the world is the heart of the American people: hardworking, innovative, risk-taking, God- loving, family-oriented American people."

Well, Mr. Romney, we USED to be!  That's why you lost the election, sir.
It has taken, literally, generations to wipe the collective memory of America of any useful recollection of its roots.  People who remember the "blood of heroes courses through their veins" do not lie down and roll over when adversity strikes.  If they fall back at all-- it is only to fall back to that "steely resolve" instilled in them by heir hero forbearers.
The edifice that is America may be crumbling and in a state of great disrepair -- but our foundation is intact!   And today that foundation is under continuous, incessant, attack by the forces that would wipe America from the face of the earth.
Our founding documents -- the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights remain as a bulwark against every effort the enemies of America have thrown at them -- so far.  They have withstood every campaign against them to date.  But they need our help.   
It is said that today we are living in a "Post-Constitution America."  We are told the constitution is simply too old to apply anymore.  We are told the constitution is a living, breathing, document with the malleability to be twisted and contorted into any shape necessary to fit any agenda our political leaders are attempting to foist on the citizens of America on any given day.
Of course -- it's a lie! 
The constitution says what it means -- and means what it says -- plain and simple. 
The US Supreme Court is tasked with determining exactly what the Constitution means when asked.  Now, however, Americans no longer trust their Supreme Court! 
I recently saw a video clip of a gentleman offering a petition to passers-by on a beach boardwalk that petitioned the President of the US to repeal the Bill of Rights!  My jaw dropped as I watched them all but line up to sign away their freedom and liberty!  It was mind-blowing! It served to remind me of just how little value is placed on individual liberty in America today.  Basically -- NONE! Lady Liberty is being gang-raped by the political left today while the sons and daughters of America's early heroes are standing by and, in some cases, cheering on the assault on their freedom.
Just as God's Spirit "will not always strive with man,"  neither will the spirit of freedom and liberty always strive with Americans.  It can be quenched.  Much of America has already become tone-deaf to liberty's call.
For America to survive, we must reclaim that which is ours by birthright.  
Alexis de Tocqueville said of America: "The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults."

It is long past time for us, as Americans, to employ that inherent ability to heal ourselves, to repair our faults, to restore that which is good and right about our country.  There is not a moment to waste.  We must reach down deep inside and tap the reservoir of revolutionist and rebellious spirits that each of us received as blood-bought gifts from our forbearers.  Along with our faith that God will not abandon a country with yet a remnant of the faithful,  THIS will be our source of strength for the struggle to restore America to her former greatness.

July 29, 2013


It has long been known that President Obama is in favor of late term abortions, but a recent telephone conversation from a confidential source working in the White House kitchen tells the sinister reason behind the President's support for infanticide - He loves "Dead Baby Soup" prepared by an experienced politburo Chinese chef because he thinks it increases his authoritarian political powers.

One aide has been overheard by our shocked informant as saying that the night before Obama makes a major political move (for example, the announcement of Obamacare) a dead baby from one of the many abortion clinics in the District of Columbia is delivered to Obama's special Chinese cook by the U.S. Secret Service. During one such late night delivery, the "dead" baby proved to be very much alive and was heard to be crying by the Secret Service detail just outside the kitchen door, but was thrown into the boiling water alive by the Chinese cook known only as "M" by White House personnel.

It is reported that President Obama dines with his inner circle at these late night dead baby soup affairs. One favorite guest is Hillary Clinton, who is said to be quite pleased with the "charge" she gets after eating dead baby soup. The former Secretary of State is reported to have been quite concerned about going to prison after her perjury before Congress concerning the Benghazi Massacre of 9/11/12, but was calmed down by two bowls of dead baby soup.


WASHINGTON - A D.C. Superior Court judge has ordered a veteran and activist accused of openly carrying a shotgun in D.C.'s Freedom Plaza held without bond. 

During a preliminary hearing Monday, an attorney representing Adam Kokesh argued that the stunt -- filmed and posted on YouTube -- was nothing more than political theater. 

The judge disagreed, ordering that Kokesh be held until his next court appearance. "I consider your client to be a very dangerous man," the judge said. "This is not a political statement." Kokesh had been arrested and charged with drug-related offenses in Fairfax County, Va., earlier in July. He is expected back in a D.C. courtroom Aug. 13.



BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A white man was brutally attacked by a group of black teens in Little Italy. Police say four of the terrorists are in custody. Three of them are juveniles. ... 

The suspects range in age from 16 to 19, but police say because of the brutality of the crime, the minors aren’t being charged lightly. 

“The fact that they broke this gentleman’s jaw, the decision was made and they are going to be charged as adults,” said Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk, Baltimore City Police.

DEFUND OBAMACARE … or ELSE … J. D. Longstreet

A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

***************Longstreet Commentaries Logo with SWORD and SHIELD
A big, nasty, battle is coming up.  It will involve republicans against democrats and republicans against republicans.
We are coming hard up against either stopping Obamacare or having it as a part of US law for, well, FOREVER!
Ronald Reagan once said:  "The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program."
How right he was! (In more ways than one!)
Once Obamacare is up and running, full time, it will NEVER BE CUT from the Law Books of the nation.  Never.
"NO federal program ever gets eliminated once it is put into place. NO federal program ever suffers an absolute real cut from this year's levels because of baseline budgeting (which always projects an overall increase of at least the expected inflation rate plus 1%-2% in future overall growth in federal spending)."  SOURCE:
As soon as our national lawmakers return to Washington, after their August recess, they will begin the debate over funding the government, keeping it open and operational. The debate will provide an opportunity to defund Obamacare -- and kill it, or do nothing and have it kill the US.
If you are a regular reader of this scribe's rants then you know I have been against Obamacare long before it was ever introduced into a congressional hopper as a bill.   If it is possible, I am even MORE against it today.
Anything that has to do with socialism is anathema to me.  And Obamacare is nothing more than socialized medicine which will destroy this country. 
Sen. Ted Cruz, a republican from Texas, is urging conservatives to join a petition drive to defund Obamacare, calling it the last chance to stop the national health-care plan before it goes into effect on January 1st of next year.
Here's what Senator Cruz said recently:  “On Jan. 1, the exchanges kick in and the subsidies kick in. Once those kick in, it’s going to prove almost impossible to undo Obamacare. The administration’s plan is very simple: Get everyone addicted to the sugar so that Obamacare remains a permanent feature of our society.”  SOURCE:
In the same speech, Senator Cruz went on to say:  “Right now we don’t have the votes. Right now we’re not even close. There’s only one way we’re going to get 41 Republicans in the Senate and 218 Republicans in the House of Representatives, which is if they hear from the American people in overwhelming numbers.”  SOURCE:
The Continuing Resolution to keep the government funded and running is scheduled to be voted on in September.  The debate on it will begin next month when the August recess is over.
"Utah Senator Mike Lee along with Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky are currently trying to lead the effort to defund Obamacare in the upcoming Continuing Resolution by vowing not to vote for any CR or appropriations bill that provides funding for the much hated Obamacare. There are roughly a dozen Republican Senators and more than 60 members of the House who have signed on to the idea of not funding Obamacare in the Continuing Resolution scheduled to be voted on in September. They are willing to fully fund the rest of the federal government, just not Obamacare."  SOURCE:
North Carolina Senator Richard Burr who called the defunding of Obamacare effort, “the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard” last week.
The Hill has more:
“I think it’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard,” Burr told journalist Todd Zwilich on Thursday. “Listen, as long as Barack Obama is president the Affordable Care Act is gonna be law.
“I think some of these guys need to understand that you shut down the federal government, you better have a specific reason to do it that’s achievable,” Burr continued. “Defunding the Affordable Care Act is not achievable through shutting down the federal government.” SOURCE:
You can easily see the politicos are much more concerned about saving their own backsides than in saving the country. Their political careers and the health of their political party is far more important to them than the welfare of the nation and its people.

We can all see now that when saving the country actually MIGHT cost them something, they shrink away from their duty
.  (I have already alerted my republican senator that he no longer has my support.)

We need to watch the upcoming debate closely and, in my opinion,  we need to "primary" any republican who fails to back defunding Obamacare in the CR debate over the next few weeks.  If they are NOT going to represent us, then we need to get them the heck out of Washington before they can do anymore damage -- or -- allow any more damage to be done.  It is past time to be rid of these feckless empty suits strutting the halls of Congress.

Last Days of America … J. D. Longstreet

Obama's Bread and Circuses
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

Panem et Circenses
"In modern usage, the phrase "Bread and Circuses" is taken to describe a populace that no longer values civic virtues and the public life. To many across the political spectrum, left and right, it connotes a supposed triviality and frivolity that characterized the Roman Republic prior to its decline into the autocratic monarchy characteristic of the later Roman Empire's transformation about 44 B.C."
"Roman politicians devised a plan in 140 B.C.E. to win the votes of these new citizens: giving out cheap food and entertainment, "bread and circuses", would be the most effective way to rise to power."  SOURCE:
If the above strikes you as being frighteningly like America today, in my opinion, you would be correct to be concerned and yes, even frightened.
How else does one explain the Obama Administration's exponential increase in welfare and food stamp rolls in America.  How else does one explain the sudden presidential executive order awarding certain illegal aliens  the right to remain in the US and even provides a pathway to citizenship.
This is NOT NEW!  It's bread and circuses.  Obama ain't from Rome but he sure as heck IS from Chicago (or, at least, he SAYS he is!)  and -- all things considered -- the pols from Chicago could teach the ancient Roman pols a thing or two about manipulating the voters to win an election or to stay in office -- once they secure it in the first place.  The Romans were no slackers when it came to stealing elections.
I have often thought that America in decline parallels ancient Rome in decline.
It is striking, at least to me, how accurate those in politics are who assess the electorate's intellect.  It infuriates me that the political left, especially, tends to see the ENTIRE electorate as dumb and stupid, wandering mindlessly, and just waiting to be told what to do. 
Then, we have a couple of elections, as in 2008 and again in 2010, and the results prove the left was absolutely correct in that assessment! 
The democrats played the American electorate in 2008 and 2010, as if it were a Stradivarius.  And they are still trying to do it.  But now -- the violin is out of tune.
One of the advantages, or disadvantages, of a long life is that one lives long enough to see history repeat itself -- over and over and over again.  Sometimes ad nauseum. It never fails to surprise and disgust me at how easily fooled the general public is when politicians run a con game on the electorate with great success time and again.
See -- nothing much changes in politics.  Names, faces, dates change -- but the tried and true tactics never change -- because the American voter is basically dumb as as a fence post insofar as knowing how our republic is SUPPOSED to work.
Explaining that the US has a constitution is, for them, some sort of ethereal concept that has no equal in their consciousness.    Oh, they've heard about it, seen snapshots of the parchment page on TV, heard quotes from it, but -- they've never actually read it.  And they, sure as heck, have never studied it. 
Dear reader, in a constitutional republic, such as America,  that is a death wish!  And America has just the people currently in charge of the government to insure a very nice funeral for a free America. 
Four and a half years into Obama's administration of the country and Americans of all political leanings are learning that the constitution is an afterthought for Obama, a speed bump, a temporary impediment to be overcome with whatever means necessary.
If you like Obama's governing by fiat, or executive order, then you should be happy with the cloudburst of decrees from the man who would be king of America.
See -- the left not only THINKS you're dumb -- they KNOW you are dumb, and they KNOW, beyond doubt, that THEY are far superior to you in intellect and, by some celestial right, it is THEY who should be caring for you, as one would a simple-minded child.  For the political left THAT is the NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS.  They believe that Providence would have commanded it so, had God had all the facts.
  (Yeah.  There are a few on the left who actually believe in the existence of a god.... gender neutral, of course.)

So far as the bread and circuses for America is concerned, my deepest concern is that it is working.  Obama gives them "free stuff" like welfare, or food stamps, and a free phone.     Like the free cheese giveaway with people lining up down, and around, city blocks to get a hand-out of a huge block of cheese -- I am sorely afraid the beneficiaries of the bread and circuses actually believe, like the cheese, that it is free. And the few who DO understand that you and I (the taxpayers) are paying for all that "free" government largesse don't give a damn.  The left is counting on that. 
The taxpayers of the United States paid for that "FREE" cheese.  EVERYONE will have to pay for the "free" bread and circuses. The currency to be used in this exchange is freedom. Just freedom. That's all.
In the end, bread and circuses did not save Rome -- and it will not save the United States.  It will, however, hasten our demise.  Just as the Roman Empire eventually broke up into numerous countries, the United States will certainly do the same.
If you are sick and tired of being played for a fool then you have roughly sixteen months to pay attention to both sides of the argument and decide which side is playing to the lowest common denominator amongst us and which side actually thinks you are not a simpleton and that you have the ability to think for yourself.
Mr. Obama has already told you that you had nothing to do with making this country great.  Government did it -- not you.  He made a mistake.  He accidentally revealed what he and the left actually believe.
The bells tolling America's death knell are growing louder.  Many are now of the opinion that is too late to rescue and restore America to her once great glory.
There is an old expression that says:  "It must be dark before you can see the stars."  Well, it IS dark in America and yes, we CAN see the stars of freedom and liberty piercing the shadows cast by socialism and Marxism.  If America resets her compass, takes a new bearing, and maintains her heading toward those stars, we will find our way through this present darkness into a new day with all the promise afforded us by all the Americans who went before us and dared to build that "Shining City on a Hill."
These do not have to be America's last days. But they WILL be if we don't rescue her from the hands of those who have stated their intentions of "fundamentally changing" her into something she was never, ever, supposed to be.
