Something Must Be Done

Via Matthew

Something Must Be Done


White racism’s perverse!
It’s gone from bad to worse.
The racist right expects us to ignore it,
But I think it’s very clear
That every single year
Is worse than all the ones that came before it.

Racist cops who walk the beat
Grab random blacks right off the street!
Though why they don’t grab Asians is a mystery…
But blacks still do longer time
Than whites for equal crime!
(When you don’t control for prior criminal history.)

Now there’s gangs of thugs who base
All their violence on your race
A clearer case of hate crime, I can’t name.
When those racist whites attack
Wait, you’re telling me they’re black?
I take it back, those kids can’t be to blame!

Yes, I know I understate,
Or ignore, most racial hate,
Even though I’m paid a fortune just to find it.
But you see, these vicious mobs
(That beat and rape and rob)
Target whites, and so I simply do not mind it.

The Knoxville Horror was sort of bad.
Yes, and Wichita, how sad —
All those massacres by blacks that racists cite.
But our real foe’s Jared Taylor,
Peter Brimelow, Steve Sailer
Those who claim that anti-racism’s “anti-white.”

I Hate All White People Because They’re So Racist


You’re absolutely right:
The problem is the whites!
They’re lashing out in fear and desperation.
But they’re whiny little shits,
Who haven’t got the wits
To accept the fact of their extermination.

Oh, I’m waiting for the hour
When the whites lose all their power.
Won’t they cry to see their empire’s destruction!
(They can’t guess our true intent
Is to redefine “consent,”
Setting race quotas for white girls’ reproduction.)

We must nobly soldier on,
Until all the whites are gone,
And the world shines with a lovely brown patina.
That’s the paradise I seek:
A global Congo, Mozambique,
Or New Orleans (after Hurricane Katrina).

Now, admittedly those places
(That are full of non-white races)
All have problems rather worse than just low grades:
When they’re not out poaching rhinos,
They’re dismembering albinos
Or raping little kids to cure their AIDS.

Of course, their failure’s not innate;
It’s always due to racial hate
And the never-healing wounds of those it tramples.
So I’m sure, once truly free,
They’ll build a great society
Though I cannot cite historical examples.

Well what do we have here?

September 27, 2011 - TAMPA, FL - In a bizarre twist of fate, a growing movement of New York City Police Department officers are banding together with the Occupy Wall Street movement, while the main stream media continues to relatively ignore this escalating event.

The Occupy Wall Street movement issued the following statement on their website:

"Today we received unconfirmed reports that over one hundred blue collar police refused to come into work in solidarity with our movement. These numbers will grow. We are the 99 percent. You will not silence us."

There is a video that has been widely circulated showing an apparent felonious assault by a police officer on a woman who has committed no offense and is peacefully protesting. He sprays her in the face with a can of pepper spray, completely unprovoked.


This is a clearly-documented, on video, act of felonious assault. Were you or I to do this we would be facing a felony charge for our actions. No less is acceptable for this individual.

It appears that not only are (if reports are correct) 100 or more officers refusing to participate in felonies against peaceful citizens, the media is now getting involved too, and not on the side of the cops and banksters either.

Women jewel thieves jailed for daring theft

Watergate Squared to the Tenth Power

he Gunwalker Scandal with Operation Fast & Furious have a far more insidious and sinister motive behind it than a stupid break in for campaign dirt. Not only was this whole operation of running guns via all the Alphabets of the Federal Government to Mexican drug cartels, an attempt by the Obama regime to blame the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment as the culprit for violence in Mexico and our borders – but it was funded and paid for by Obama’s Stimulus program - meaning we taxpayers funded this crime, and Obama signed that into law so it could be used to abolish our right to keep and bear arms.

But wait there’s more. The hoped-for intent was that both the Mexican government and the Alphabets in the Fed would reveal that gun shows and gun sales in the U.S. were putting guns in the hands of drug cartels that then were being used to kill U.S. law enforcement officers. Obama prepped this narrative of blaming America for the gun and drug violence in Mexico way back in April of 2009, a few short months after taking office. Obama wanted to create a demand for renewed gun bans on all semi-automatic weapons in the hands of Americans, and push for a treaty to be ratified in the Senate to track and curtail arms in the U.S. It was after this that Porkulus money was apportioned to the alphabets to conduct gunwalking operations to get guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. The promise of increased annual funding and power over average Americans was a drug they could not pass up.

Not until those same weapons handed to the Mexican cartels were used to murder border patrol officer Brian Terry, did the moral weight of what was being done cause some whistleblowers in the ATF to go to public and ask Congress for help.

But as Senator Chuck Grassley is discovering – he is being stonewalled and stymied by Eric Holder at Obama’s IN-Justice Department at every step and turn.

Like the idiots they are, the GOP made a fatal blunder in thinking they could negotiate in good faith with Marxists hell-bent on turning the country upside down. Like morons with no clue of the nature of a wolf, they thought if they spoon fed the beast – the beast would cooperate in the name of justice. Eric Holder’s Justice Department that is. See, Grassley and his clueless cadre of Republicans on the Judiciary Committee actually believed that if they confirmed James Cole as Deputy Atty General, Eric Holder promised to stop the stonewall and provide the information they requested. Idiots, played for fools as they are finding out:

NC Governor Bev Perdue: I Think We Should Go Ahead And Cancel The Elections So We Can Work On The Country's Problems

Forget it, Perdue, you'll be gone in 2012.

==============================

Suspend democracy?!

I've been waiting for some sensible talk about politics, and finally, here it is!

“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”

Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things,” Perdue said.

Why? Why would she say that?

Because she is a prisoner of the liberal -- or leftist -- idea that the people are incapable of making sound decisions about politics, and require a "vanguard" of the enlightened to make decisions on their behalf.

A Representative Republic? That's So Last Century

"So what to do? To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic." - Peter Orszag

Oath Keepers Member Writes Senator Expressing Concerns About FBI Targeting Preppers for Surveillance and Senator’s Staff Reports His Letter to the FBI

Below is a letter sent in to Oath Keepers by Mark Matthews, who is a lawyer, veteran, and Oath Keepers member from Richmond, Virginia:

Stewart,

I read your article on the Oath Keepers website about the Colorado FBI surplus store flyer, and I was so incensed that I sent a copy of the flyer to Senator Jim Webb of Virginia asking him to look into the FBI’s behavior. Little did I know that my request for my Senator’s oversight over the FBI would result in me being reported to the FBI.

What really concerned me about the flyer was that many of the items listed on the flyer as suspicious are actually items that FEMA encourages folks to buy as preparedness supplies. FEMA’s website Ready.gov encourages citizens to purchase waterproof matches (http://www.ready.gov/america/getakit/index.html) and nonperishable food that requires no refrigeration, preparation, or cooking such as MREs (http://www.ready.gov/america/getakit/food.html).

FEMA’s own website encourages Americans to be prepared for natural or man-made disasters. But now, normal citizens can be caught in a catch-22 where they are deemed suspicious by the FBI for purchasing items that FEMA says they should purchase.

Senator Webb’s office got my letter. First off, the staffers who got ahold of it misread it, because the response from Senator Webb’s office seemed to think the flyer was distributed by the surplus stores, not by the FBI. But even worse, the response stated ‘I am sending your letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their consideration and response and have asked that they keep me informed of their progress in this matter.’ I was amazed when I read that, because the last line of my letter asked my Senator to look into the FBI’s actions before the country reached a point where merely writing my Senator was enough to make me suspicious. I was not expecting my letter to be sent on by my Senator to the very law enforcement agency I am criticizing.

ATF Chief Counsel’s office warned management of Gun Rights Examiner column

Gun Rights Examiner has obtained a copy of a January 20, 2011 email from Barry Orlow, Associate Chief Counsel (Field Operations and Information) for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, calling top management’s attention to a January 19 column posted by this columnist, “Open Letter to Senate Judiciary Committee staff on 'Project Gunwalker'.

Written to inform the committee of whistleblower allegations and to arrange for their protection, the ultimate goal of the open letter was to prompt a full congressional investigation.

Orlow was named by House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa in July for sending intimidating warning letters to witnesses about what they could not talk about, with the result that “at least one witness wanted to back out of testifying to his committee after receiving the letter.”

Chased home: Mob attacks man in his house

Via Sipsey Street Irregulars

ABOUT 11 P.M. on Sept. 9, dozens of youths with bats and pipes descended on a tidy residential area of Port Richmond looking for white teens who allegedly had attacked an African-American kid at Stokely Playground a couple of hours earlier.

Two fearful white teens spotted Mark LaVelle on Indiana Avenue near Belgrade Street and asked for help. Suddenly, the mob appeared. LaVelle, who said that he didn't know the two kids, who looked to be 13 or 14, ran with them into his nearby house.

" 'We got you, you white mother-------!' " LaVelle said he heard someone yell in the "mob" of black and Hispanic youths.

Inside his house, LaVelle, 37, called to his wife, Kim, 30, to go to their bedroom with their twin 13-month-old boys, Mark and Mason, and to call police. He also ordered his two other sons, 11 and 17, and his nephew, 7, to stay upstairs.

With the two teens hiding in the house, LaVelle, 5 feet 10, 220 pounds, a well-known sports-league organizer and coach in the community, went outside to try to calm the angry mob.

They were standing on his steps. One shouted, " 'Something's going to happen now!' " LaVelle recalled in an interview Friday at his house. LaVelle got nervous and went back inside, locking his door with a deadbolt.

But the attackers pounded on his front windows and kicked his wooden door so hard, it flew open and some of them entered his house.

"The first guy hits me with a pipe. The second guy knocks me in the face. All I'm hearing is my wife and kids screaming," said LaVelle, who feared that the next time they saw him, he would be in a casket.

Nightmare in Libya: 20,000 Surface-to-Air Missiles Missing

Via Rebellion

U.S. officials had once thought there was little chance that terrorists could get their hands on many of the portable surface-to-air missiles that can bring down a commercial jet liner.

But now that calculation is out the window, with officials at a recent secret White House meeting reporting that thousands of them have gone missing in Libya.

"Matching up a terrorist with a shoulder-fired missile, that's our worst nightmare," said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D.-California, a member of the Senate's Commerce, Energy and Transportation Committee.

The nightmare has been made real with the discovery in Libya that an estimated 20,000 portable, heat-seeking missiles have gone missing from unguarded Army weapons warehouses.

The missiles, four to six-feet long and Russian-made, can weigh just 55 pounds with launcher. They lock on to the heat generated by the engines of aircraft, can be fired from a vehicle or from a combatant's shoulder, and are accurate and deadly at a range of more than two miles.

Vince Cefalu wows the crowd at Tucson Tea Party Gunwalker rally

Despite threats from his superiors, Cefalu blew the whistle about Operation Fast and Furious anyway, which has landed him under review for what he describes as “a proposal for removal for telling the truth.“

“Unchecked power corrupts,” he said, adding that there are no longer checks and balances within ATF.

In his speech, Cefalu made the larger argument that this is a major government corruption problem, not only surrounding Operation Fast and Furious, but about a runaway government that doesn't answer to the people, saying ATF agents and the Department of Justice shouldn’t be able to say no to Congress when asked for documentation surrounding operations within the Bureau. The Obama Justice Department has been stonewalling the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into Operation Fast and Furious since day one.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who is fighting on the ground in Arizona against the very cartels the federal government has been arming, was appalled at the operation, saying this scandal will “totally eclipse Watergate,” and made the case that Operation Fast and Furious was used as program to restrict Second Amendment rights for law abiding citizens. He brought up the lie that 90 percent of guns in Mexico come from the United States, told over and over again by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. The 90 percent figure has been proven false by multiple fact checking organizations, intelligence sources and even ATF agents yet, Obama and Holder have tried to make the case that all the violence in Mexico comes from the United States.

“He’s [Obama] saying that to build the argument to restrict our gun rights in America,” Babeu said, and internal ATF emails prove it.

Babeu was also disgusted at the idea that the government has never apologized to the family of Brian Terry, despite guns from Operation Fast and Furious being used by a cartel member to kill him.

“He was a cop, he was a marine and was murdered on American soil,” Babeu said.

“I want nothing out of this bit for justice to be served and for Brian Terry’s mama to know that somebody cared,” Cefalu said. “You’ve sent that message tonight, that you cared.”

Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar described Operation Fast and Furious as “A Few Good Men being played out in real life,” adding that humans were used as collateral damage while the federal government armed Mexican cartel members with .50 caliber sniper rifles, a weapon strong enough to take down a helicopter, and AK-47s.

“I want to remind you, we had a couple of guys break into a hotel take down an administration, nobody died,” Gosar said. “When are we going to hold agencies and bureaucrats to task?”

Gosar, Babeu and Cefalu all called for accountability from the Obama Administration multiple times throughout the evening and questions from the audience were centered around who ultimately would be held responsible for not only the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, but also for the deaths of thousands of innocent Mexicans.

“These people are now being killed wholesale,” Cefalu said.

In the past 18 months, 22,000 Mexicans have been killed.

“President Obama is not above the law and he and this administration will have to account for this,” Babeu said.

Current Legislation for Gun Owners To Worry About, Part 1 of 4

Hundreds of bills are filed in both the House and the Senate every session, but few come close to becoming law. Most are window-dressing filed to please anti-gun or pro-gun supporters. This series will examine 16 bills, eight from each chamber, both pro and anti, which deserve special attention.

This week we examine four anti-gun bills from the Senate:

S.176: Common Sense Concealed Firearms Permit Act of 2011
Sponsor: Sen. Barbara L. Boxer (D-Calif.)
Status: Read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

This bill mandates a nation-wide concealed carry permit process, forcing states with less stringent permit laws to accommodate a more restrcitive federal standard. Under this bill, Vermont could no longer allow concealed carry simply on the basis of American citizenship, and a permit applicant would have to prove he is worthy of the public trust. Rather than assuming the right to carry for personal safety, in the words of the bill, gun owners will have to demonstrate good cause for requesting a concealed firearm permit.

Max Motors targeted by ATF, banks and General Motors

Despite the White House harassment, and the loss of financing and insurance arrangements that came in the past, the Butler, Mo., car dealer who will be giving away AK-47’s again starting in October.

“Guess what? We are doing it again! It is the Fourth Annual Great Guns and Gas Give-Away!” said Mark Muller, the owner of Max Motors, whose July 17, 2009 interview with CNN’s Carol Costello about his promotion was great publicity, but brought him unwelcome attention.

Within days of the CNN broadcast, three agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrived at the dealership, he said.

“I was not there, they identified themselves and asked who was in-charge, and everybody pointed at each other,” he said.

Undeterred, the agents demanded to see the guns, he said. When it was explained that there were no actual guns, and that the promotion was really for vouchers towards the purchase of an AK-47, the agents did not believe it.

“There was an empty gun box here from a gun dealer in North Carolina, and they took that and demanded to see the gun that came with that box,” he said. The agents also went into storage rooms and took photos.

The next day, Muller received a call from the ATF asking him to come in for a meeting with all of his personal guns, which they insisted they had to authority to order, he said. Muller held his ground and refused to submit to the audit without first going through due process.

“The ATF people were just as nice as can be. They were not mean or hateful—and finally I asked the lady on the phone: Don’t you have something better to do?” he said. He then re-explained that there were vouchers for guns and that no guns were being given away.

“She said: ‘Let me tell you how important this is, the White House started their morning with a briefing on you. We got a call from Washington, D.C. this morning. They wanted you checked out,” he said.

“That’s your big government in action. I’m a guy exercising his constitutional rights and I’m such a threat to security that the White House has to check in on me?” he said.

Medal of Honor Roll Call: Robert R. Ingram

Human Events

It has been my honor to present these recipients from the Vietnam War this month. May we as Americans always remember that they went when asked, fought as instructed, and many are still among us today; living heroes, one and all. We wrap up the month with a Corpsman who not only was willing to give his last ounce for the Marines under his charge, but then – incredibly – was spared to see them live. Though Ingram survived his ‘crowded hour’, his Medal wasn’t presented until July 10, 1998, when then-President Bill Clinton bestowed it during a ceremony in the White House, alongside twenty-four of the men Ingram served with. The delay of more than thirty years was attributed to ‘lost paperwork’.

Make the most of your day!

Place and date: Quang Ngai Province, Republic of Vietnam, 28 March 1966
Entered service at: Clearwater, FL
Born: 20 January, 1945 Clearwater, FL

Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as Corpsman with Company C, First Battalion, Seventh Marines against elements of a North Vietnam Aggressor (NVA) battalion in Quang Ngai Province Republic of Vietnam on 28 March 1966. Petty Officer Ingram accompanied the point platoon as it aggressively dispatched an outpost of an NVA battalion. The momentum of the attack rolled off a ridge line down a tree covered slope to a small paddy and a village beyond. Suddenly, the village tree line exploded with an intense hail of automatic rifle fire from approximately 100 North Vietnamese regulars. In mere moments, the platoon ranks were decimated. Oblivious to the danger, Petty Officer Ingram crawled across the bullet spattered terrain to reach a downed Marine. As he administered aid, a bullet went through the palm of his hand. Calls for "CORPSMAN" echoed across the ridge. Bleeding, he edged across the fire swept landscape, collecting ammunition from the dead and administering aid to the wounded. Receiving two more wounds before realizing the third wound was life-threatening, he looked for a way off the race of the ridge, but again he heard the call for corpsman and again, he resolutely answered. Though severely wounded three times, he rendered aid to those incapable until he finally reached the right flank of the platoon. While dressing the head wound of another corpsman, he sustained his fourth bullet wound. From sixteen hundred hours until just prior to sunset, Petty Officer Ingram pushed, pulled, cajoled, and doctored his Marines. Enduring the pain from his many wounds and disregarding the probability of his demise, Petty Officer Ingram's intrepid actions saved many lives that day. By his indomitable fighting spirit, daring initiative, and unfaltering dedications to duty, Petty Officer Ingram reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

Excellent comment on This Is A Dead Republic

This Is A Dead Republic
==========================
The truth is even more difficult for many to see.

The Constitutional Convention that produced the Federalist Constitution that has failed was compromised from the start by that Federalist cabal. Three times the vote was taken to remain within the charter under which the Convention was called by the Articles of Confederation, you remember, that document that created a Perpetual union of states.

Upon ratification of what was in fact an illegal document, the Federalists then ran wild and roughshod over the limitations within the Constitution. Passage of the Alien and Sedition Act should be proof enough for anyone of that. Yes, it was repealed, but not before more than two dozen people were arrested, mostly opponents of the Federalists.

Then came the midnight appointment of Chief Justice John Marshall, and the usurpations began in earnest. His court granted itself sole jurisdiction of what the Constitution meant, what the Necessary and Proper Clause meant, and many other self actualizations of power.

With those as a foundation, the self granting of power to the courts and the executive branch continued unabated.

Finally, there was that blood soaked coup d'etat by the traitor, Abraham Lincoln, that put us on the course to exactly what we have today.

We have nothing to restore, nothing is hibernating, it's been a hoax from the beginning. The only thing to do, if one wants the country to remain whole, which I do not, would be to return to the Articles of Confederation. That's unlikely. The alternative, which I do favor, is to have each individual state become an independent, sovereign nation again and then decide for themselves what sort of alliances with other states each wishes to have.

I do recommend, that *anyone now serving in the US government be barred for life from serving in any state government in the future.

* I don't believe you can lump all into one, but certainly the vast majority are crooks.

64 year old NC man with broken leg survives 4 days in Utah desert

Via Survival

A North Carolina man crawled four days across the Utah desert after breaking his leg on a solo hike, inspired by a Hollywood movie about a man who cut off his own arm to save himself after being trapped by a boulder in the same canyon.

Amos Wayne Richards, 64, of Concord, N.C., is now recovering at home. He said he was inspired to hike Little Blue John Canyon after he saw the Oscar-nominated movie "127 Hours" but fell 10 feet during his trek on Sept. 8.

Canyonlands National Park rangers found Richards four days later. Along with the leg injury, he dislocated his shoulder but was able to work it back into place.

"It took me about 3 or 4 minutes to work my shoulder and get it back in place, and once I got it back in place, I stood up and realized my ankle hurt a little bit," Richards told WBTV in Charlotte last week after his story started getting the attention of national TV news networks.

Without cellphone service and only two protein bars to eat, Richards began crawling back to his car across the rocky terrain. He filled his water bottles with rain as he painstakingly retraced his steps, eventually dragging himself almost five miles.

Keep in mind, this is taking place in heavily “urban” Atlanta where the teachers all read at a 4th grade level. That is, after they falsify their grades to get their union bonuses! They probably thought Sharia was the new kid who moved in from downtown Atlanta.

Here is some of the material being used to teach the chirren (comments in parenthesis by AWD):

“My name is Ahlima and I live in Saudi Arabia. … Perhaps two differences Westerners would notice are that women here do not drive cars (and live to tell about it) and they wear abuyah (or get buried up to their necks and pelted with rocks and stones). An abuyah is a loose-fitting black cloth that covers a woman (like a ninja) from head to toe. I like wearing the abuyah since it is very comfortable (and I can go months without bathing), and I am protected from blowing sand (plus it covers the marks of my husbands fists). … I have seen pictures of women in the West and find their dress to be horribly immodest (all that style! ooooh). … Women in the West do not have the protection of the Sharia as we do here. If our marriage has problems (my husband and my father and brothers will kill me), my husband can take another wife (and kill her too) rather than divorce me, and I would still be cared for (until I am buried up to my neck and pelted with rocks and stones). … I feel very fortunate that we have the Sharia (I’m so lucky! What other religion would kill me for showing an ankle?).”

Past and Future President Putin

Via Conservative Heritage Times

In a broader geopolitical sense Putin’s return to Russia’s helm is beneficial to the American interest because he has a more acute understanding than Medvedev that North America, Europe and Russia essentially share the same civilizational genes and belong to the same cultural sphere. As Russia’s ambassador to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, noted almost three years ago, “If the northern civilization wants to protect itself, it must be united: America, the European Union, and Russia. If they are not together, they will be defeated one by one.”

This statement reflects a profound understanding of the biological, cultural and spiritual commonalities shared by one billion Europeans and their overseas descendants in the northern hemisphere — an understanding evidently taken for granted in Putin’s entourage yet odious to the Western elite class. Medvedev, by contrast, has displayed occasional symptoms of the propensity of Russian reformers ever since Peter to look at “the West” with some awe, or else with a na├»ve hope that Moscow’s constant assurances of “cooperation” and “integration” may erode the visceral antipathy of the Western elite class toward Russia. That disdain is based on the accurate recognition that Russia is the last bastion of faith and identity which those people have done their best to destroy in their own countries.

In Washington the ruling neo-liberal humanitarian interventionists will deny that any common Euro-Russo-American civilization exists, let alone that it is worth preserving or jointly defending, and they will use Putin as proof positive that this is so. Russia is still steeped in its barbarian blood-and-soil pre-modernity while the propositional credo of the U.S. transcends the shackles of ethnicity, race, culture, and faith. If Putin still insists on a Russian physical or cultural space that does not belong to everyone—while Siberia remains under-populated—he is a bigot, and under him it is even less likely that Moscow will finally see a Gay Pride Parade.

Subdividing America—to Win

“Now even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes.

“Well, I say to them tonight, there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America. There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.”

That was state Sen. Barack Obama in his keynote address to the 2004 Democratic convention. His rejection of tribal politics, his stirring call to national unity, vaulted him into the Senate and was the first step on the path that took him to the White House.

Well, that was then, but now is now.

According to The Washington Post, Obama’s 2012 campaign is today busily subdividing the nation into racial, ethnic and religious enclaves for targeted appeals to find a “narrow path to victory.”

Setting one tribe against another, one faction against another, divide and conquer, is among the oldest tactics of politics and war.

The Obama campaign headquarters calls its divide-and-conquer strategy “Operation Vote.” Reporter Peter Wallsten describes it:

“Operation Vote will function as a large, centralized department in the Chicago campaign office for reaching ethnic, religious and other voter groups. It will coordinate recruitment of an ethnic volunteer base and push out targeted messages online and through the media to different groups, such as blacks, Hispanics, Jews, women, seniors, young people, gays and Asian Americans.

“Look for the race card to be played early and often.”

This is tribal politics, pure and simple. Hire blacks, Hispanics, Jews and gays to appeal to and advance the interests of blacks, Hispanics, Jews and gays. And what happens then to the national interest?

Conspicuously absent from this racial-ethnic-religious targeting is America’s majority, white Christians, who are still 60 percent of the nation. Why no outreach to them? Have they been written off?
