About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Losing Liberty Through BO's Executive Orders

Ever since BO signed the executive order, entitled National Defense Resources Preparedness Order on Friday March 16 granting himself absolute control & authority over all the country's natural resources (domestic energy, production, transportation, food, and water supplies as examples) in case of a natural disaster or during a time of war I have been barraged with messages from my readership – thanks to every one of you for your deep concern that is totally justified. 
I have tried to hold everyone contacting me on this @ bay asking you to wait & see if the hostile anti-American news media would report the story & of course they did not.  The best I could find was Sean Hannity presenting it as a "C" news story on Monday night – three days after the fact.  This would have been the "A" news story Judge Napolitano would have presented on "Freedom Watch" & of course this type of reporting (& his support of Ron Paul for president) is very much why he was abruptly taken off the air by Fox Business Network a few weeks ago.  Please note I said Fox, the ratings giant not your savior.
In a nutshell, the above executive order is the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for "National Defense", whatever he decides that is. It's peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it's for "Preparedness."  Specific sections of the order make it clear that the president may take complete command and control of the country's natural resources in peacetime. 
This executive order is a follow up to The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 signed by BO on December 31, 2011 that allows the president to indefinitely detain people the government suspects of involvement in terrorism including U.S. citizens arrested on American soil.  This period could cover decades if not the rest of your life.
Naturally none of the above rip-offs of liberty is by accident – in fact it is by BO's design as he gets more emboldened every day as the electoral opposition weakens – just look @ the low Republican primary voter turnout again tonight in Illinois.
BO already has many other things in place for our undoing.  For instance there is the Independent Payment Advisory Board, an unelected & unaccountable 15 member group created by ObamaCare that will determine specified savings in Medicare starting in 2014 & 2015 – i.e., denied care for seniors.
All of these measures will rob you of your liberty – the bedrock of America & our prosperity.  BO is ready to complete the mindset capitulation to total dependency if we are not there already.  A neighbor told me today that he is worried about his grandchildren – our problems are a lot closer than that.


  1. All the more reason to get rid of Obama . So, no more bad mouthing Romney...our very way of life is at risk.

  2. On late train ... Great post, critical topic, must respond:

    My best guess is BO signed exec order in preparation for:

    US Dollar collapse and opportunity this can present to
    transition US into Marxism. Why?

    BO is intelligent, understands economics well. He may very well realize that increasing debt well over ratio to GDP may soon (1-2 Years maybe less) will result in foreign creditors declining to finance our debt, thus a $ collapse, rampant inflation, start of a economic downturn much more severe than 2008. BO may have assessed that he will be able to blame capitalism. Then by implementing the executive order he may take over many industries and ration many resources such as food, housing, energy, health care.

    Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, BO's ideological idols both stressed timing in initiating revolutions. Both stressed need to not overextend themselves which could result in repudiation for revolutionary change. BO may be in a grey area. He may be encouraged due to reliable intrade.com betting 60% he will win election, poor Republican primary participation and weak field, compliant media, OWS success (and back in zuccati park), and US mindset capitulating to total dependence on government). Perhaps BO is waiting for the dollar to collapse then go full force with peacetime martial law. Then he may be confronted with the major wild card: terms of our foreign creditors. I have read material from economists claiming to understand foreign creditors, the G20 and the IMF. Their conclusion is that they will not allow a total socialist or Marxist solution, understanding that historically such solutions have never resulted in a strong economy. Instead they will set up stronger global monetary system but allow all nations with much private economic opportunities and market competition. However there are global economic powers such as George Soros who believe in global socialism. We can not be sure which side would win. Maybe BO has researched this quite well: maybe he is however overextended and will be severely disappointed (ex IMF says get lost BO).

    What to do now? We still may have some time for optimism. Do your part to inform as many people as you can in an unemotional way what choices lie ahead. Blog on news sites and Facebook. And email as many members of the House of Representatives as you can asking for BO impeachment for this unconstitutional executive order.

  3. Doug, thank YOU for informing us of these executive orders. I didn't know about them at all...even missed Sean Hannity's presentation.
