On Gordian Knots, & Right Timing

I have another blog pending, but today (meaning Saturday) I have come across information that disturbs me greatly, that I will share on first.

The more I look into the relatively recent history of the American nation (I have been out of the country for over 35 years, have not been privy to details about what has been going on here) the more I find that there has been an awful lot of chicanery involved in the operations of the U.S. government over these years, and since the turn of the century.  I am not impressed, to say the least.  I will refrain from jibing with the sort of response that the Queen of Britain might make at this point, that 'We are not amused'.  But the sentiment certainly is there.  What with constitutional amendments that weren't properly ratified, and bogus executive-branch agencies collecting illegal - even if called voluntary - income taxes, to unheard-of extents of executive actions, and collusion in thereof by Congresses, it is no wonder that the Democrat and Republican party honchos figured that they could get away with the Democrat Party's running of an ineligible candidate for the office of the president, in the form of Barack Hussein Obama; who was not a qualified candidate for that office under the terms of the Constitution, but when you have been treating the Constitution so fast and loose for so many years anyway, one more 'little fudge' might well not seem like so big a deal.

But, nevertheless, it is.  And I for one will not stand for it; even with all the compromises with the rule of law that have already been made.*

For, though it may seem a small matter - the difference between a 'natural born' citizen and any other kind of citizen, in that position - it can have huge consequences; as we are seeing today, with a step-by-careful-step attempted takeover of the country by a dedicated cadre of totalitarian-minded forces, right up in our faces now, with their determination to make the American ship of state sail the collectivist sea that those forces are determined for the whole world to have to sail, under the guiding philosophy that Big Brother Knows Best (about all sorts of matters, not just environmental ones).  

With all this sorry mess that we are in - and which is about to ignite into civil war in this country, with patriots, though demonized by the Left, as part of its attempts to stifle the anticipated reaction to its revolution (it was ever thus), not about to surrender the American flag to the globalist forces, and their demeaning, dystopian future - one might well conclude that the best answer is the one that Alexander the Great gave to the conundrum posed to him of the Gordian Knot: that is to say, to just cut through it, in one imperial stroke (or at most, a couple).  But there is more going on here, in this instance of a difficult dilemma, than that sort of simple 'blunt' response should be called for.  There is the need for some measure of accountability to be introduced.  And so, rather than a leader of higher forces just slicing through our knot, causing the warring forces of The Process to stop going on about their business in action-reaction mode, ultimately anyway to ascend to our Synthesis stage of operations here on planet Earth, I would hold that we need first to hold those responsible for crimes against the law of the land accountable for their actions, to some extent at least; and only then move on from there, into a brighter future than the one that  might reasonably be expected to be ahead of us, given the gravity of the current situation, and the widespread lack of a larger vision, than the merely materialistic, 'humanistic' one that we are living our lives by today.

And which would undoubtedly await us mortals, if there weren't a God, and all that that 'fact of life' implies.

Now that I've got that off my chest:  more tomorrow.  (Meaning, now: today.  Time flies...)


P.S. Case in point:

Chilling legal memo from Obama DOJ justifies assassination of US citizens 

The president’s partisan lawyers purport to vest him with the most extreme power a political leader can seize
(The Guardian) – The most extremist power any political leader can assert is the power to target his own citizens for execution without any charges or due process, far from any battlefield. The Obama administration has not only asserted exactly that power in theory, but has exercised it in practice. In September 2011, it killed US citizen Anwar Awlaki in a drone strike inYemen, along with US citizen Samir Khan, and then, in circumstances that are still unexplained, two weeks later killed Awlaki’s 16-year-old American son Abdulrahman with a separate drone strike in Yemen.
Since then, senior Obama officials including Attorney General Eric Holder and John Brennan, Obama’s top terrorism adviser and his current nominee to lead the CIA, have explicitly argued that the president is and should be vested with this power. Meanwhile, a Washington Post article from October reported that the administration is formally institutionalizing this president’s power to decide who dies under the Orwellian title “disposition matrix”…



* As another illegal occupier of the presidential office said, in other circumstances: 'It will not stand.'
     I refer, of course, to George H.W. Bush (in calling for retaliation against Saddam Hussein the first Gulf War go-round).  About whom there is, belatedly, information regarding his background that would have ruled him out of the running - and even for Vice President under Reagan.  But this information was not known at the time.  And anyway, two wrongs don't make a right.
     The Democrats seem to have decided that, since Bush Jr. may have won the presidency the first time around (against Al Gore) via voter fraud (and a helping hand from the Supreme Court), two can play at that game ('Don't get mad; get even'), and elevated voter fraud to an art form especially in the 2012 elections,  The whole corrupt thing being based on the machinations of the likes of Tammany Hall, many years ago in our nation's blotted history.  All of which has been demeaning the elections in this country to the level of the worst of Banana Republics; or of the old Soviet Union elections.  Mighty sickening stuff.  Time to be cleaned up - pronto.
