CRF Radio with author and military historian John D. Gresham

Tonight I solo-hosted on CRF Radio, due to Steve feeling under the weather. Thankfully, my good friend, author and soon-to-be #Writestream Radio host John D. Gresham was able to join me for two segments to talk about sequestration.

This eye-opening conversation is a must-listen for everyone who cares about our national security. Truly, what John shared with all of us tonight is deeply disturbing. But knowledge is power and sharing it with everyone you know on social media and in real life will go a long way toward turning things around. But we’ll have to feel the pain first, and it’s best to be aware of what’s coming. Listen to the interview by clicking here.

RIP American Republic

For a variety of reasons including but not limited to now-resolved computer issues, it has taken me two days to publish my post-Election Day thoughts, although I let loose in a series of Facebook status updates in real-time the other night:

Our once great Republic has crumbled. I am especially ashamed of my gender and its obsession with abortion. God help us all, this country cannot survive its fools.

Thanks to the uninformed and others obsessed with Roe v Wade, we will all find out what Comrade Obama meant when he told the Russian President he will have more “flexibility” after the election.

Connecticut has forfeited the right to call itself the Constitution State since it has fallen so far from Constitutional principles. 92% for Obama??

Add Pennsylvania to the list of states that has completed abandoned its proud history in the fight for independence

If you voted for Obama, shame on you! You have aided and abetted the destruction if our once great Republic. Just wait til you find out how expensive “free” healthcare is, and how bad the forthcoming sequestration will be for our economy. Thanks for nothing freeloaders.

Although I’ve had 48 hours to allow the horror to sink in, it has only increased with hindsight, exacerbated by the exit polls, demographic breakdown and news like this from Michelle Malkin, which was entirely expected:

This is just the beginning.

In case you missed it, Boeing announced massive layoffs and facilities closures yesterday. More: Small business owners are dropping the axe as they brace for the costs and burdens of Obamacare.

In case you missed it, I reported on Obama’s layoff bomb last week.

Read the entire, depressing account at Michelle’s site.

Speaking of depressing, 67% of single women voted with their Lady Parts this time around:

Two-thirds of single women voted for President Barack Obama on Tuesday – showing that unattached women are a powerful Democratic voting bloc.

These women were galvanized not only by traditional “women’s” issues such as birth control and abortion rights, but also by Obama’s jobs message and health reform, analysts say.

NBC News national exit polling shows that 67 percent of unmarried women said they voted for Obama. That’s in line with the 2008 election, when 70 percent of single women helped usher the president into office. This proves it wasn’t a single-election phenomenon: unmarried women have solidified into a powerful voting force, experts say.

Seriously ladies (and I use the term loosely), “liberation” now means total dependency on Daddy Government? And are you really that gullible to believe the propaganda that Mitt Romney was going to take away your birth control and reverse Roe v. Wade (even though no President has the power to overturn a Supreme Court decision)?

These are of course, rhetorical questions. Because the cold, hard data proves these ill-informed and easily led Julia’s know nothing about the Obamacare bill and its deleterious effects on our economy (already happening as small biz owners being laying off employees to stay under the 50 employee threshold) and our healthcare (IPAB, excess taxes on medical device manufacturers, etc). But hey, reading is hard. Informing yourself is square. Voting on facts is passe. Just ingest the propaganda the left spews out and live the life of government-dependent Julia, whose cradle-to-grave existence is funded by people who do get off their butts and work for a living.

To say I am ashamed of my gender would be a HUGE understatement. You haven’t come a long way, baby. In fact, you’ve regressed pathetically far from the era of the American pioneer women and the European immigrants of yesteryear who came to this country in search of OPPORTUNITY, not government largesse. Once upon a time, it was considered shameful, or at the very least, a temporary if necessary evil to accept food stamps, welfare and other government goodies. Back in the day, private citizens, private charities and religious institutions bore the responsibility of helping others back onto their feet after a major setback or unforeseen circumstance.

But now, instead of “I am woman, hear me roar”, apparently the motto is “I am woman, hear me whine” — oh and, give me lots of free birth control and abortion on demand, even if it violates the religious liberties of my employer (should I actually work for a paycheck).

For shame. And just one stark example of the inherent connection between morality and economic prosperity. In a society that deems generational welfare an acceptable career choice while simultaneously demonizing those who do produce, i.e. business owners (as evidenced in movies, TV, music, etc), it’s no wonder half of the electorate — including single women — voted for more dependency at the expense of national security and prosperity.

Our once proud Republic, founded by courageous patriots like Patrick Henry, whose motto was “Give me liberty or give me death” has been destroyed by fools whose motto has transformed into “Give me free stuff”. Sad, pathetic, depressing.

I weep for my country as I realize we have selfishly squandered the beacon of liberty our Founders risked their very lives to secure. Yes, I will keep fighting but I fear that the battle may not be won when only half of us actually understand that the United States of America and its watershed document, the US Constitution, cannot be upheld and preserved by a nation of freeloaders but only by a moral and religious people as noted by Founding Father John Adams.

If I didn’t believe their souls were enjoying the blessings of the afterlife in the presence of God, I’d be inclined to think our Founders were turning over in their graves. Shame on my fellow countrymen — and fellow members of my sex — for destroying everything they worked so hard to secure, the greatest nation the world has ever known.

Worth reading today: From Us, the Bitterati by Jay Nordlinger. It’s a little long but Nordlinger eloquently speaks for all of us who love our freedom and anxiously await the forthcoming pain of a second Obama term.

And ladies, believe me, there will be pain — lots of it. I hope the “free” birth control was worth it. Thanks for nothing.

Check out Anthony M. Davis Photography

On this Tuesday morning, I needed a little a break from political insanity and thought I’d introduce my readers to the beautiful world of Anthony M. Davis photography. I met Tony on LinkedIn a few years back and he’s been a good friend ever since. The multi-talented military veteran is an accomplished author and security expert — among many other accomplishments, including unique, inspiring and uplifting photography.

Check out some of his work here and be sure to visit Flickr to view his entire portfolio.
