Now here's a good question..."Why ?"

We the People
by John Briare
WHY? Simple Questions I have...

Over the years, I have some simple questions that I just can't get logical answers for... So I'm hoping you can help. Here we go --

Financial Questions...
Why do people spend more than they make?
Why do these same people then force me to help them pay their bills?
Why do people blame the banks for giving them loans they could not afford?
(Did the banks buy a new car and go to Vegas or on a Cruise with those funds they gave you?)
Why do people think that one person paying 15% of their income in taxes and someone else paying 33% of their income in taxes is fair?
Why doesn't everyone simply pay 20% of their income in taxes - exempting the first $60,000 from any tax - No Deductions?

Education Questions...
Why can't parents send their children to schools of their own choice without having to pay both a Public Education System and Private School Education?
Why can't Public Schools just compete against private schools - let them compete for every dollar they get?
Why don't teachers get tested?
Why does Massachusetts have almost 300 Superintendents of Public Schools - many making more money than the President of the United States?
Why does our society consider someone who went to college as being smarter and more capable than someone who became a tradesman or opened their own business?
(lots of College Degrees working retail right now and over $100,000 in debt - is this really smart?)
Why do Companies have a BA Degree Requirement?
(When I ran a $100 Million+ Sales Division - I waived that requirement for my employees and found the ones who did not have College degrees often did better than those who had them.)
Why do College Professors have tenure?

Government Questions...
Why isn't English our Official Language?
Why are Government Workers paid hourly? Shouldn't they be salaried?
Why do we pay lifetime pensions after only 20 years of work? Shouldn't they retire at same age that the rest of us can legally collect Social Security?
(A Family member just retired from Law Enforcement - 43 years old and will receive a hefty pension for the next 40 years. He can begin collecting immediately. Why?)
How Come Massachusetts does not utilize Volunteer Fire Depts like NY and so many other states?
Why doesn't Worcester county have 1 dispatch center for all 911 calls?
Why aren't there regional lockups instead of each town having their own?
Why is our Legislature Full time?
Why do we keep making laws without rescinding laws? Eventually won't we all become criminals?
Why do Politicians like Barney Frank keep getting re-elected? Scandal after scandal - this guy has more dirt on him than a farm.
Why do we keep sending Money to Foreign Countries who hate us?
Where did the $700 Billion in Stimulus Money go?

Legal Questions...
Why aren't there more lawyers who specialize in suing other lawyers? They would make a fortune!
Why can anyone sue anyone in this country for less than $20 in filing fees?
Why don't we have "LOSER Pays" as the foundation within our legal system?
Why do renters have more rights than homeowners?
Why can renters take a tax deduction in Massachusetts but homeowners can not?
Why don't we just shame people who attempt to abuse, corrupt or profit from our legal system?
(I just read that someone is suing Google because they followed a "trail map from the Google Maps Website and found that the road was unsafe.
Shouldn't we feature these types of people on the front page of newspapers for being Stupid. Hello... If there are tractor trailers going 60MPH and no place to walk on the side - stay off the darn road!)
What happened to good old fashioned common sense?

Social Questions...
Why do people think Democracy is more important than Liberty?
Why do people think that a baby within the womb is not alive? And does not have the basic right to life?
(It is a Federal Offense to destroy an Eagle's Egg. Is a Baby Eagle more valuable than human life?)
Why do people think War can be civil?

I could go on and on with the questions....
but I feel as if either society has gone mad -- or maybe... just maybe... it is I who no longer fits in.

And if that is the case --- I'm not changing.

Helen Thomas Apologizes...Who ever gave any credibility to this woman?

Helen Thomas posted this on her website:
“I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”
The following video replays the comments that she is so apologetic about:

Personally I don't believe the apology is from the heart as she would want you to believe.  Thomas' so-called regretfull words come across as a simple statement to appease the politically correct crowd.  For one thing the choice of words do not address the statement made in the video.  Let's face it Helen, you've hated Jews so long now that you're not about to change your mind...  Who ever gave any credibility to this woman? ~ Norman E.

Israel Intercepts Another Ship

Israeli navy 'intercepts' Rachel Corrie Gaza aid ship

Page last updated at 4:07 GMT, Saturday, 5 June 2010 5:07 UK

The Rachel Corrie (file picture) Activists had said they would not resist Israeli forces
Israel has intercepted the latest aid ship attempting to break its blockade of the Gaza Strip, activists say.
Israeli officials have not commented, but they had warned they would not let the MV Rachel Corrie reach Gaza.
The confrontation comes days after Israeli troops stormed a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, leaving nine people dead and many injured.
That raid brought strong condemnation of Israel, especially from Turkey where most of the victims were from.
It is unclear whether Israeli forces have boarded the vessel or if they are just tracking from a distance.
The activists on board the Rachel Corrie had said that they would not resist.
The ship is named after a US college student who was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer as she protested over house demolitions in Gaza.
Earlier, Israel told the ship to dock at the Israeli port of Ashdod and promised that the aid will be taken by road to Gaza.
The US urged the activists to do what the Israelis asked. However Irish Nobel peace laureate Mairead Maguire, who is aboard the ship, insisted it would not be diverted.
Activists said there were 20 people on board the Rachel Corrie, including five Irish nationals, six Malaysians and nine crew members.
The ship had been a part of the previous flotilla, but was delayed by technical problems.
The international outcry over Israel's actions when it intercepted the last flotilla has still not died down.
Accounts differ as to what happened when Israeli soldiers abseiled from helicopters on to the Turkish passenger ship Mavi Marmara in the early hours of last Monday.
Israel says their commandos were attacked with sticks and knives and used their weapons in self-defence. Activists say troops opened fire without provocation.

This Obama-Sestak thing...Don't you think we got enough to put 'em all in jail?

I meant to post this over a week ago...well better late than never. ~ Norm

The following from

Look Who's Behind the White House/Sestak Stonewall
Michelle Malkin  Wednesday, May 26, 2010
After three months of zipped lips and feigned ignorance, the Obama White House is finally taking real heat over Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak's consistent claims that the administration offered him a job to drop his Senate bid. Now it's time to redirect the spotlight where it belongs: on the top counsel behind the Washington stonewall, Bob "The Silencer" Bauer.
On Sunday, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs glibly asserted that "lawyers in the White House and others have looked into conversations that were had with Congressman Sestak. And nothing inappropriate happened." With whom were these conversations had? Gibbs won't say. Neither will Attorney General Eric Holder, who dismissed "hypotheticals" when questioned about Sestak's allegations last week on Capitol Hill by GOP Rep. Darrell Issa of California. Holder is simply taking his cue from the commander-in-chief's personal lawyer and Democratic Party legal boss.
You see, on March 10, Issa also sent a letter to Bauer, the White House counsel to the president, requesting specifics: Did White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel contact Sestak? Did White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina (whom another Democrat, U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff, has accused of offering a cabinet position in exchange for his withdrawal)? How about the White House Office of Political Affairs? Any other individuals? What position(s) was/were offered in exchange for Sestak's withdrawal? And what, if any, steps did Bauer take to investigate possible criminal activity?

Bauer's answers? Zip. Nada. Zilch. While the veteran attorney ducked under a table with the president, Gibbs stalled publicly as long as he could -- deferring inquiries about the allegations one week by claiming he had been "on the road" and had "not had a chance to delve into this," and then admitting the next week that he had "not made any progress on that," refusing the week after that to deny or admit the scheme, and then urging reporters to drop it because "whatever happened is in the past."
But the laws governing such public corruption are still on the books. And unlike Gibbs, the U.S. code governing bribery, graft and conflicts of interest is rather straightforward: "Whoever solicits or receives ... any ... thing of value, in consideration of the promise of support or use of influence in obtaining for any person any appointive office or place under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both."
Bauer is intimately familiar with electoral law, Barack Obama, ethics violations and government job-trading allegations. And he's an old hand at keeping critics and inquisitors at bay.
A partner at the prestigious law firm Perkins Coie, Bauer served as counsel to the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Obama for America. He also served as legal counsel to the George Soros-funded 527 organization America Coming Together during the 2004 campaign. That get-out-the-vote outfit, helmed by Patrick Gaspard (the former Service Employees International Union heavy turned Obama domestic policy chief), employed convicted felons as canvassers and committed campaign finance violations that led to a $775,000 fine by the Federal Election Commission under Bauer's watch.
As I've reported previously, it was Bauer who lobbied the Justice Department unsuccessfully in 2008 to pursue a criminal probe of American Issues Project (AIP), an independent group that sought to run an ad spotlighting Obama's ties to Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. It was Bauer who attempted to sic the Justice Department on AIP funder Harold Simmons and who sought his prosecution for funding the ad. And it was Bauer who tried to bully television stations across the country to compel them to pull the spot. All on Obama's behalf.
More significantly, Bauer has served as Obama's personal attorney, navigating the corrupted waters of former Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich's pay-for-play scandals in Illinois. Bauer accompanied Obama to an interview with federal investigators in Chicago. And he's got his hands full fighting Blago's motion to subpoena Obama in the Senate-seat-for-sale trial -- a subpoena that included references to a secret phone call between Obama and Blagojevich; an allegation that Emanuel floated his own suggested replacement for Obama's seat; an allegation that Obama told a "certain labor union official" that he would support (now-White House senior adviser) Valerie Jarrett to fill his old seat; and a bombshell allegation that Obama might have lied about conversations with convicted briber and fraudster Tony Rezko.
With not one, not two, but three Democrats (Sestak, Romanoff and Blagojevich) all implicating the agent of Hope and Change in dirty backroom schemes, "Trust Us" ain't gonna cut it. Neither will "Shut Up and Go Away." What did Bob "The Silencer" Bauer know, when did he know it, and how long does the Most Transparent Administration Ever plan to play dodgeball with the public?

150 Killed by Central American Tropical Storm

Entire Office Building Swallowed by Sinkhole as Floods, Landslides Ravish Guatemala-Mexico Border Region Photo Essay Tropical Storm Agatha

  • Flooding and landslides from the season's first tropical storm killed 150 people and made thousands homeless in Central America
(AP) Flooding and landslides from the season's first tropical storm have killed at least 150 people and made thousands homeless in Central America, officials said.

Dozens of people were missing and emergency crews struggled to reach isolated communities cut off by washed-out roads and collapsed bridges caused by Tropical Storm Agatha.

The sun emerged Monday in hardest-hit Guatemala, where officials reported 123 dead and at least 90 missing. In the department of Chimaltenango - a province west of Guatemala City - landslides buried dozens of rural Indian communities and killed at least 60 people, Gov. Erick de Leon said.

Photos: Tropical Storm Agatha

"The department has collapsed," de Leon said. "There are a lot of dead people. The roads are blocked. The shelters are overflowing. We need water, food, clothes, blankets - but above all, money."

In the tiny village of Parajbei, a slide smothered three homes and killed 11 people.

A photograph reveals that a sinkhole in northern Guatemala City engulfed a three-story building. There are no confirmed deaths from the incident, but stunning aerial photos showed a massive bottomless hole may have devastated more than just one large building.

"It was raining really hard and there was a huge noise," said Vicente Azcaj, 56, who ran outside and saw that a hill had crumbled. "Now everyone is afraid that the same will happen to their homes."

Volunteers from nearby villages worked nonstop since Sunday to recover the bodies in Parajbei, and on Monday they found the last two: brothers, 4 and 8 years old, who were buried under tons of dirt, rocks and trees.

As a thank-you, rescuers got a plate of rice and beans from the mayor of nearby Santa Apolonia.

"It's a small thing, but it comes from the heart," Tulio Nunez told them through a translator.

Nunez said he worried about the well-being of survivors in the area because landslides blocked roads and broke water pipes.

"They don't have anything to drink," he said.

In all some 110,000 people were evacuated in Guatemala.

Thousands more fled their homes in neighboring Honduras, where the death toll rose to 17 while meteorologists predicted three more days of rain.
Two dams near the capital of Tegucigalpa overflowed into a nearby river, and officials warned people to stay away from swollen waterways.

"The risk is enormous," Mayor Ricardo Alvarez said.

In El Salvador, 11,000 people were evacuated. The death toll rose to 10 and two others were missing, President Mauricio Funes said Monday night.

About 95 percent of the country's roads were affected by landslides, but most remained open, Transportation Minister Gerson Martinez said. He said 179 bridges had been wrecked.

The Lempa River, which flows to the Pacific, topped its banks and flooded at least 20 villages, affecting some 6,000 people, said Jorge Melendez, director of the Civil Protection Agency.

Officials warned that the Acelhuate River, which cuts through San Salvador, was running at dangerously high levels and threatened to spill over into the capital's streets.

Melendez said classes would be suspended Tuesday in all primary and secondary schools and public and private universities across El Salvador.
Agatha made landfall near the Guatemala-Mexico border Saturday as a tropical storm with winds up to 45 mph. It dissipated the following day over the mountains of western Guatemala.

The rising death toll is reminding nervous residents of Hurricane Mitch, which hovered over Central America for days in 1998, causing flooding and mudslides that killed nearly 11,000 people and left more than 8,000 missing and unaccounted for.

Rescue efforts in Guatemala have been complicated by a volcanic eruption Thursday near the capital that blanketed parts of the area with ash.

Free Speech? What Constitution? Obama taking the lead...leading us into war that is!

This is it folks!  Free speech is almost dead! (see article below).  The longer this Obama character remains in the White House the shorter the time we have to remain free.  If all else fails you may soon see a lynch mob surrounding the White House with a hangman's noose at the ready.  Almost every word he utters is a lie and although he can sound like an appeaser he spews forth hate at every opportunity.  He has the easily fooled easily fooled!
If anyone at the FCC obeys Obama on this (see below) then they too should be targets for the lynch mob.  This is absolutely insane never mind un-Constitutional.  If anything the FCC should be monitoring Obama and his cronies for hate speech.  Didn't anyone ever listen to Van Jones?  William Ayres?  Hillary Clinton?  Bill Clinton?  Nancy Pelosi?  Ted Kennedy?  John Murtha?  Harry Reid? Jesse Jackson?  Al Sharpton?  Also, (Ref: "the Commission deliberates how the public interest will be served in the digital age...") the public interest will be served by ridding this rogue government of all the above (I know a couple have already departed and that was good) and putting them away behind bars.
As for the lynch mob I may not agree but I'd be the first one to chip in and buy the rope!  Has this country ever seen such a bunch of worthless hoodlums in charge?  No! and hell no!  But you know what?  The complacency of the American people is getting so bad that even the sound of, "We'll get 'em out in November!" sounds sick.  I've warned you people before and I can warn you till I'm blue in the face, if you don't get off your duff and do something soon you can kiss your country good-bye...Obama has to be thrown out of office before his term is up...I kid you not!!!  If you want to tar and feather the traitorous SOB I could care less just as long as he is out of here!  I don't care where the scum bag was born, HE IS NOT AN AMERICAN!...neither are his crony New World Order scum... 
I've said this before and I'll say it again.  This Obama guy is leading us into war.  I've also warned about anarchy and violence.  That warning was made some time ago and my prediction was that it would occur in late 2010.  The closer we get to that time frame the more I wanted to move the date further out but the closer we do get the more I am convinced that it will happen sooner than any of us think.  And if you don't think that stories like the one that follows is not a factor in any future violence then you don't have a brain in your head...wake the hell up America! ~ Norman E.

Liberal Groups Want FCC to Police Talk Radio, Cable News

By: Jim Meyers
A coalition of more than 30 mostly liberal organizations has sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission urging the agency to monitor “hate speech” on talk radio and cable news networks.

The groups assert in the letter that “hate, extremism and misinformation have been on the rise . . . as the media has focused on Arizona’s passage of one of the harshest pieces of anti-Latino legislation in this country’s history.”

The organizations include the Center for Media Justice, the Rainbow Push Coalition, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the National Association of Latino Independent Producers, and Common Cause.

“As traditional media have become less diverse and less competitive, they have also grown less responsible and less responsive to the communities that they are supposed to serve,” the letter states.

“In this same atmosphere hate speech thrives, as hate has developed as a profit-model for syndicated radio and cable television programs masquerading as ‘news.’”

The coalition did not mention any specific media outlets.

The groups also argue that the Internet has made it more difficult for the public to separate “the facts from bigotry masquerading as news,” The Hill newspaper reports.

The Internet “gives the illusion that news sources have increased, but in fact there are fewer journalists employed now than ever before,” according to the coalition.

“Moreover, on the Internet, speakers can hide in the cloak of anonymity, emboldened to say things that they may not say in the public eye.

“For these reasons, as the Commission deliberates how the public interest will be served in the digital age, it should consider the extent of hate speech in media, and its effects.”

Congressional Candidate wants Obama removed from office and tried for sedition, treason


by Sharon Rondeau

Ernest Huber (R) is challenging incumbent Dave Reichert for the Congressional seat in the 8th District of Washington
(Jun. 2, 2010) — Ernest Huber is a retired Navy Lt. Commander, former homeschooling parent of eight children, USAF Sergeant, law school graduate, grandfather, and candidate for Congress from the state of Washington.
Mr. Huber shared the following personal story exclusively with The Post & Email:
During my service in the Pacific Fleet, my ship took me to South Korea where I did volunteer work at an orphanage while on liberty.  I grew very fond of one of the little orphan girls and began adoption proceedings.  She wanted to be my daughter.  My hopes were dashed after learning she wasn’t an orphan at all, but one of the unwitting pawns in a gang operation using the “orphanage” as a front to shake down sympathetic U.S. military personnel.  Outside the orphanage one day she thrust into my hand her most cherished possession, a porcelain figurine of a girl and her puppy.  She ran crying into the “orphanage.”  I never saw my little girl again.  Her figurine is on my desk.  I still grieve losing her, but I continue to fight for her, wherever she may be.
MRS. RONDEAU: When did you first decide to run?  I know you started your campaign in October.  Was there a galvanizing moment?
MR. HUBER: Yes, actually, there was.  It was when my opponent, Dave Reichert, voted for Cap & Trade.  I worked on this guy’s campaign, and then I started to say, “Wait a minute.  This is horrible.  This Cap & Trade was written by the Apollo Alliance, which is a communist organization.  Van Jones ran it and he was a communist, and here we have it; now he’s in the White House and he was kicked out.  What is this about?”  And I started investigating this guy’s record and I thought, “Wow!” and I started watching a little more closely, and I thought, “This guy is horrible (my opponent, Reichert).”  So I communicated with the county leader of the Republican Party and I said, “You have to get somebody else running against this guy, because he’s leading us down the path of destruction.”  He wouldn’t do it.  So then I figured, “Well, as I said earlier, if you have inept and corrupt party officials, they give us inept and corrupt elected officials.”  So like begets like.  So I thought, “Nobody is going to run, and this is horrible.”
So there was a county picnic and I wrote up my own sign which said, “Fire Reichert!” and I went to the picnic.  I was the only one there, but everybody was coming up to me and saying, “Yeah, you’re right; this guy has to go; he’s a RINO.  He votes for Cap & Trade and other things,” and some other folks came up to me and said, “Yeah, he’s done other things,” and I said, “Really?” and then I researched it further, and I thought, “What is this?”  And one day I just got up and started typing up what I believed in because I knew to know what I believed in before I could share it with everybody else. So it was a growing process for me.  So the website that you see there is me:  that’s what I feel.  Nobody told me to write that.  And that’s when I decided to run, shortly before the October date.  And that’s what people have to know; they have to know what they believe.  Most candidates say, “I’m opposed to abortion.”  Well, why are you opposed to abortion?  Well, most of them can’t tell you that; they’ll give you a religious argument, but people need more than a religious argument.  Maybe the fact that we’re scheduled for extinction at the current birth rates will sober people up.  If we don’t reverse that by 2050, we’re gone.  That’s one thing.  And we have 50,000,000 people who are socially engineered to death, and that’s another thing, and to find out who the people are who are promoting that social engineering – they’re not conservative, they’re not constitutionalists, and they’re not Christians.  So that tells you they’re bad guys.  That’s one example.  And homosexuality is another example, and it goes on and on and on.
MRS. RONDEAU: Has your primary challenge of Reichert caused a rift in your local Republican Party?
MR. HUBER: Our system is that the top two candidates go into the general election from the primary.  There’s no party endorsement required.  Anybody can choose to affiliate with any party, and party nomination is not required to run for office.  But, to answer your questions more specifically, yes, there is quite a bit of conflict because I’ve publicly stated that it’s my intention to purge the Republican Party of RINOs and to change it and get it back to its conservative roots.  They have these conservative platforms, but they never follow them, and in my county, they give lip service, a wink and a nod, and then they pretend that they’re Republicans, but they’re really not.  They’re Seattle liberals and progressives.  And that’s misleading and it gives us a false choice, and it really is destructive to the democratic process.
MRS. RONDEAU: Is your area known for being more constitutional or conservative, or has it traditionally been a more liberal area?
MR. HUBER: In the eighth district, the bottom two-thirds is conservative; the top one-third is more liberal.  They’re equalized in the numbers, so this is going to be a tight one, but I have no doubt that I’ll prevail in it, because if you look at my website and what this guy has voted for, he’s bad news.  They’re nation-killers, especially TARP, Cap & Trade and Omnibus Land Management.  And the list goes on and on.  We have to stop this, and we can stop it; it’s just a question of our will.
MRS. RONDEAU: I read on your website that you would like to go back to using U.S. Notes instead of Federal Reserve Notes.  How do you think that could be accomplished?
MR. HUBER: I set it forth in my Economy plank, and it could be accomplished rather simply and quickly.  There’s already an Executive Order that President Kennedy wrote that hasn’t been rescinded, EO 1110, authorizing the Treasury Secretary to print those notes, and he in fact did, and I have one on my wall right now signed by Mr. Dillon.  It has a red seal on it; it’s a five-dollar bill and says “United States Note.”  This is a bypass of the Federal Reserve; it’s a debt-free, interest-free piece of currency, and Kennedy printed up millions of these and used those to, in part, finance the Viet Nam War.  Lincoln did the same thing; he called them “greenbacks,” or “Treasury Notes,” and he bypassed the bank because they were going to charge him 25% interest to finance the war, and he said “No way,” and so that’s what he did.  Back in the Revolutionary days, in the 1700s, they used something called “Continental Currency” which was the same thing, essentially.  They bypassed the Bank of England and printed up their own money.
This is something that’s in our history; it’s easily-done.  The Treasury Secretary can just change the top of the note from “Federal Reserve Note” to “United States Note” and issue them and then recall the notes that have the “Federal Reserve Notes,” or “FRNs,” as they come into the system.  This would replace them.
MRS. RONDEAU: Would this mean that the Federal Reserve would have to be audited first, or could this be done without an audit?
MR. HUBER: It could be done without an audit, but the objective, of course, is to bypass the Federal Reserve because they’ve been such a very horrible influence on our nation and other nations.  They bankrupt nations, and the power that they get from their debt scheme has been used for centuries to disempower and disenfranchise the citizens of most nations and all political parties.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think this could be done if there are enough people who see things the way you do into Congress in November?
MR. HUBER: Sure.  It will require conservative warriors, essentially, to get in there to do this.  Most of the conservative commentators and leaders are really stuck in “Stupid.”  They really are just dabbling at the surface, scratching the cosmetic issues.  They’re trying to put the cart before the horse by getting these fancy programs up for job creation and economic recovery when the real recovery starts from excising the cancer that we have at the heart of the economy itself, and that’s the Federal Reserve.  Because in essence, we’re being swindled, and we’ve been swindled, and a lot of other people have said this, too (Ron Paul and many more), but I take it a little bit further.  I think that these are crimes that are being committed, and I think the owners of the Federal Reserve should be rooted out and their executives should be prosecuted for RICO violations and when you get down to it, crimes against humanity, because the pain and suffering that they cause by diverting and bleeding the wealth and resources from our nation is just horrendously beyond description.  It’s so abominable that it should outrage even the most average citizen.
MRS. RONDEAU: When people take a dollar out of their wallet, do you think they ordinarily wonder where it comes from or what it represents?
MR. HUBER: Well, it’s evidence of a debt.  But the damning thing about it is that there really is no debt.  The Federal Reserve doesn’t have any wealth; it’s just paper.  They print Monopoly notes; we buy the Monopoly notes at face value, plus they charge us interest compounded.  We pay that.  So what Kennedy and Lincoln did is they said, “Hey, we’re not going to do that; we can print our own notes for pennies and not owe anybody anything and not have to tax anybody because there’s no debt that results from that transaction.”  So what I’m saying is that there is no national debt.  There are no unfunded liabilities; Social Security is not bankrupt; you don’t owe income tax, and you never have.  It’s a gigantic scam and a swindle of immense and horrible proportions.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think we need to repeal the 16th Amendment which brought the income tax?
MR. HUBER: No, we don’t have to do that.  The 16th Amendment is an optional amendment.  It empowers Congress; it doesn’t direct them to tax; it doesn’t say “You shall tax the citizens;” it says “You may tax.”  It gives them power to do that.  The problem we get into with a Constitutional Convention is that everything would be up for grabs and we don’t want to do that, knowing the people that are around us, because then we will really eviscerate ourselves.  We can just bypass that but not call a Constitutional Convention.  We don’t even have to collect the taxes; it’s optional.  You have to put conservative folks in office like me who are willing to go to the mat for the people and to free them economically and politically so that they can, in fact, be citizens of the Constitution and enjoy massive prosperity and well-being.
MRS. RONDEAU: Have you always felt this way, or have your views changed since the 2008 presidential election?
MR. HUBER: As with most folks, throughout life, and I’m 64, you gradually mature in your knowledge base and insights, and I can say that I’ve been constantly learning.  I’ve felt that there was something wrong with the economy and that things aren’t always as they seem, and I always looked for answers and truth.  It wasn’t just the election; I’ve had those insights way before that.
MRS. RONDEAU: How do you think the election of Obama came about in 2008?
MR. HUBER: I think it was a gradual process.  Like any other presidential election, things don’t happen by accident.  The candidates aren’t picked by accident; they have to prove themselves to the power brokers and the folks behind the throne, so to speak, and they have to get their own vetting that’s very intense.  And most of the time, these people are hand-picked and groomed.  I think that’s the way it is with most presidents, and certainly, Obama is not the exception.  Knowing the part of his background that is available, he certainly has been groomed, except in the wrong milieu – by the bad guys.
MRS. RONDEAU: Who do you think does the grooming?
MR. HUBER: The people who have the most power.  They want to have their people call the shots and be in positions of power.  It’s the same with any political party or organization:  the party officials elect the elected officials; they get them running and in positions of power.  Usually, behind the party officials are the party funders, the people who pay the bills.  It’s been like this for thousands of years; it’s no conspiracy or secret.  So the people who pay the piper call the tune.  That’s the way it has always been.  But the names of the people are starting to surface:  George Soros is one who comes to mind, and we have the Chicago-Muslim-Marxist, depraved gangster community that is involved and made this possible.  There are all kinds of interlaced and competing interests.  You have the New World Order which everybody talks about, but there are also other World Orders such as the Chinese World Order, the Islamic World Order…they’re all jockeying for world position, power and control.  They cross over every once in a while and sometimes they’ll have alliances of convenience or ad hoc organizations where they work on things together, just like any other organization.
MRS. RONDEAU: That was my next question:  do you think any of them at any time work together?
MR. HUBER: Sure.  It’s like any other alliance whether in the military or in business where you have partnerships, syndicates (and I don’t mean that in the negative or criminal sense); groups can have syndication where people get together for a common goal, and the same thing for corporations and subsidiaries and partnerships.  Some partners are silent; some are managing partners.  This happens; it’s not a surprise, and it’s not rocket science.  It’s life.
MRS. RONDEAU: When is the primary?
MR. HUBER: August 17 is the final mail-in deadline.  We have a mail-in primary election now in Washington State, and that’s open to corruption, especially when the ballots are counted as they have been in King County where there have been a lot of allegations of voter and election fraud, which I happen to believe.  So you have these mail-in ballots that are coming in and there’s really no paper trail on them, and it’s just ripe for fraud.
So the mail-in deadline is August 17, and that’s our primary.
MRS. RONDEAU: When did you officially kick off your campaign, and what type of campaigning are you doing now?
MR. HUBER: In October 2009.  I’ve been doing the regular campaigning drill:  talking to people, calling people, speaking to various groups and going on talk shows and being interviewed by folks like you; working on the websites and standard politicking.  It’s been going fine.  The people with whom I’ve been speaking give me roughly an 80% approval and say, “Yeah, I’ll vote for you; that’s great; you’re right on track,” and the rest of them say, “Nah, I don’t think so,” or are non-committed.  But I’m getting a very good response.  There are a lot of variables which go into the election, and a lot of that hinges on election fraud.  That’s nationwide, not just in my district.  Because we see a big tsunami coming, but one of the  last lines of defense by the SEIU, ACORN and the other Marxist front organizations is to get in there during the elections and put their people in counting the votes.  The people who count the votes determine who gets elected, and it’s been that way for thousands of years.  So I’m telling my volunteers to get in there so they can count the votes.
MRS. RONDEAU: Is there a way you can make sure they get in?
MR. HUBER: It’s hard to do that because in my county, or where the votes are counted, mostly, they have an ultra-left political organization in charge of the Department of Elections, and it’s been that way for decades.  You do what you can do.
MRS. RONDEAU: If you’re getting an 80% positive response from people with whom you’re speaking, that must mean that they are unhappy or uncomfortable with Mr. Reichert.
MR. HUBER: I think so.  I also think that my platform resonates excellently with most people who read it.  On my website, I’ve put that in some detail, and the reason I do that is that it’s almost like a small book, like a pamphlet.  I call it a “Conservative Manifesto.”  I want people to know who I am and I’m not going to resort to a lot of advertising, so the best way I can do that is to get it on hard copy on the internet so that people can look at it and come back and refer to it.  I have my address, phone number, email address, and if people have questions, I want them to talk to me:  call me up, and we’ll talk about it.  I don’t want them relying on these independent, anonymous vetting people who say, “Oh, yeah, we approve him or her.  They’re good.”  Well, who are vetting people?  There’s a lot of RINO and progressive infiltration into the tea parties who are trying to hold themselves up as vetting experts and then they steer candidates one way or the other.  This is a sophisticated battle we’re engaged in, and there are a lot of shenanigans going on.  So I want people not to rely on third parties.  It’s too important; we have to do our own research and find out what the candidates really think, and my goal is to talk with everybody who will be voting for me.  I have at least 200,000 voters that I have to reach, but I’ve taken a big bite out of that amount.
MRS. RONDEAU: When you speak with people, are they likely to mention the U.S. Constitution or your state constitution?
MR. HUBER: Some do; it depends on the type of people I speak with.  If I talk to tea partiers, yes; they’re up on that.  If I talk to the average citizen who is not a tea partier, then they’re more concerned with bread-and-butter issues, taxes, unemployment, social decay, things like that that are in the news.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think the government largesse that’s being going on since President Lyndon B. Johnson, or even before, can be rolled back?  Can we get people to live without those programs?
MR. HUBER: I don’t think we have to.  I think we can phase them out, but under my Economy plank, we can fund government operations debt-free and tax-free as long as we observe prudent accounting principles and we index the money supply to productivity and we don’t pay $2,000 for an ashtray.  We need to hold the Congress accountable and not let them delegate this stuff to unaccountable banking crooks.  So then the Congress actually has to work instead of spending 90% of their time naming post offices.  What is that about?  They work only three days a week, from Monday to Wednesday.
Regarding the “general welfare:”  There are two “general welfare” clauses:  promoting the general welfare is to promote the general welfare of the citizens, but “provide” for the general welfare is to provide the constitutional protection of the states.  There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the government should provide the general welfare for the citizens.  They’ve twisted that around to the point where most people think that it’s a welfare state, and it’s not.  The “providing” word applies to the states, and the “promoting” word applies to the citizens.
MRS. RONDEAU: What do you think is the biggest item that people in your district are concerned about now?
MR. HUBER: It depends on whom you talk to, but I think it’s an impending sense of doom, and there are various things that go into that sense.  A lot of it is unemployment, the taxes that they see coming in on the dark storm clouds from Congress; the debt that’s building up.  It’s kind-of a generalized sense of foreboding.  Specifically, everybody sees the economy, and the bottom line is that they’re not making as much money as they should be making, and they’re seeing a lot of waste in government, and they’re seeing corruption.  They don’t want anything to do with the Congress; they just don’t like the Congress.  Their views pretty much mirror Rasmussen’s polls which show that people want to see the whole Congress just turned out.
I think that emblematic of that was when Calderon, Mexico’s president, addressed the Congress and just berated the Arizonans for daring to defend our border against his invasion and the Republicans sat on their hands, and the outrageous Democrats got up and applauded his disrespect, despicable disrespect for our nation.  That resonates more than  anything else; it’s just symptomatic of how people feel about the Congress.  In essence, people feel Congress is totally worthless and can’t be trusted.
I caution people, though, that when we get into that mode of changing people, you have to be careful about who replaces them, and I say this on my YouTube video.  You don’t send the compassionate conservatives to fight the revolutionaries who have taken over; you have to send people who are going to fight.  And I don’t mean “reach across the aisle” or send the RINOs back; you have to send people there who are going to stand up and get in their faces and demand that they bad guys go to jail.  Because that’s where we are; we have things we have to get done; we have to stop the train before we can back it up.  The train is headed for a trestle that’s washed out, and we have to put on the brakes.  The way we put on the brakes is by electing very conservative patriots to Congress and the presidency so that we can stop the train, then back it up.  But in the meantime, we stop the train by gridlocking most legislation, bringing it to a complete stop.  We don’t need any more laws; we really don’t, and by defunding the unconstitutional, horrendous legislation that has come out of Obama and by repealing that which we can repeal…this is a numbers game.  We have to get people into the House and Senate.  When we take control of the Senate, then we can arrest Obama, and that’s what has to happen.
I know you plan to ask about the aspect of eligibility, but the way I address the eligibility issue of Obama is by looking at priorities.  I’ve used an analogy:  it’s like having an unlicensed driver driving down a city street committing continuous hit-and-runs.  I’m more concerned about stopping the driver for killing people with his hit-and-runs than whether or not he has a license to drive.  And right now Obama has committed so many crimes, impeachable offenses, and treasonous offenses, that this guy should have been in jail a long time ago had we more courageous members of our government to stand up and do it.
But this also gets back to the issue of how long it took to get this guy in office.  The skids had been greased years ago, and you have complicit people in positions of influence such as in the media, in government, or in the courts who are making all of this happen.  This didn’t happen overnight; it’s been going on for decades to get us where we are right now.  It’s not just Obama; he’s a figurehead it could be anybody.  So let’s say that hypothetically we find a birth certificate that says he was born in Kenya.  Then what do we do?  Then we go to the court, and the court says, “Sorry, that’s res judicata; that’s already been adjudicated; we’re not going to look at this evidence before it’s even heard; sorry, you’ll have to go elsewhere.”  So where do we go ultimately?  We have to go to Congress.  That’s why Congress is going to be ones to make this or break this.  The courts will say, “This is a political question,” because it pertains to eligibility for office.  This is not a legal issue; this is a political issue.”
I’m also suspicious of people like Berg who are long-time Democrat hardcore folks leading us down these garden paths where they’re just futile efforts.  They have been up to this point.  My concern is to get into Congress to help put Obama in jail, and his gang, because these guys are enemies of the people.  So they have to go to jail; they just flat have to go to jail.  There’s no other way to solve this problem.  We can’t have laws that are effective in our nation as long as we have Obama in power with his gang and as long as we have the Federal Reserve in power with that gang.  We will always be spinning our wheels and heading for the ditch; every time we try to pass something, it will be neutralized or perverted or diverted out of the intent of the legislation, and nothing will work.  So we have to solve the first problem first, or it’s all futile and just pie in the sky.  We can’t be proposing all these specific pieces of legislation until we remove the obstacles to the successful implementation of that legislation. And of course, a lot of conservatives are just stuck in “Stupid;” they’re cowardly, or they’re ignorant of what’s actually happening.
MRS. RONDEAU: How many people would it take in Congress to raise the question of Obama’s eligibility, and more to what you said, to launch an investigation and possibly have him tried?
MR. HUBER: That is in my plank on Obama and National Defense.  The first thing that I will do from the floor of the House is to move that the matter of Obama be referred to the House Judiciary Committee to inquire into grounds for impeachment for treason and failing to defend our border (which is in Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution), which is blatant treason.  He aids and abets in the invasion by having Calderon come in front of Congress and telling them to sit down and be good boys while he loots and pillages and overruns the country.  Plus racketeering:  the stuff that’s coming out of Chicago is just gross racketeering, Al Capone stuff written large.  Also, he should be charged with sedition and national security offenses.
MRS. RONDEAU: Our newspaper doesn’t call Obama the president because we don’t feel that he’s legitimate.  How can this man be a leader of the American military?
MR. HUBER: He can’t be the Commander-in-Chief because he was raised by radical Muslims and communists.  And we’re supposed to trust him as Commander-in-Chief to fight radical Muslims and communists?  He can’t be, and most people don’t view him as that.  But the second thing I would do, and again, it’s a numbers game – how many people we have in the House and Senate – if necessary, assuming there is still ongoing corruption in the Executive and Legislative branches and my motion to refer the matter of Obama for an impeachment investigation is denied, because of that corruption, then I would be forced to call upon the Commanding General of the Army, Washington Military District, to take him into custody, confine him and to search and see the documents and evidence of that criminality.
If the Senate is taken over by conservatives, then the Sergeant-at-Arms, who is empowered by the Senate, can make the arrest of the president and his staff.  This is something that very few people know, but you can do that.  Then we start from there.  But whether or not there are impeachable offenses, the primary thing is we have to stop the train, because he’s destroying the country.  We can’t wait for an impeachment based on the rapidity with which he is dismantling our constitutional government; we can’t wait that long.  We’re in extremis right now, and every day there is something that comes out of that White House that is totally destructive.  He could wreak all kinds of irreversible havoc the longer he’s in office, and if he gets his back to the wall, he could start doing military things that we could not recover from.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think the military would take his orders if he did start doing what you just said?
MR. HUBER: The history of coups is such that most of them don’t happen from the senior officers; they happen from the junior officers, because the senior officers go along to get along and they’ve been politicized over the years.  I don’t know, and I don’t have any inside information on that.  I really don’t know; I would hope that we could avoid a violent resolution and that we don’t have to go to civil war, which is what some of those guys want us to do.  They want us to fight each other, and that would solve a lot of their problems if we could just kill each other off.  So we want to avoid that at all costs.  We have to selectively take out the bad guys and bring them to justice.
But if the military wouldn’t act, then I’m perfectly willing to go down to the White House and take citizens with me and implement the Declaration of Independence’s clause that says that whenever you’re faced with a tyrant, it’s your rank duty to take that person and remove him from office.
MRS. RONDEAU: Why do you think no one in the current Congress will do that, even if they know that Obama is dismantling the country on many fronts?
MR. HUBER: There are all kinds of motives; everybody has different motives. But I’m a practical guy in that regard.  I don’t care; I don’t care what the reasons are.  It doesn’t help me to know that.  The only thing I have to know is that they’re doing it wrong and they have to be removed.  I can get all wrapped around the axle looking at motives and psychological nuances; somebody’s been corrupted here, somebody’s afraid of this…I don’t care.  I don’t care what it is; they have to go.  It makes it easy.
MRS. RONDEAU: The point is they haven’t done it.
MR. HUBER: Analyzing it forgoes and forestalls prevents us from being courageous.  We’ve become over-civilized so that if we analyze things, we think that they’ll go away and we won’t be accountable for anything.  We have to step up to the plate.  This is something we’re going to have to do; we’re going to have to put our lives and our sacred honor on the line as our founders did, and we can’t get around it.  Sorry, but we’re on the train, and we have to do something.  No more jousting at windmills; where the rubber hits the road, it’s ballots or bullets.
MRS. RONDEAU: Is there something average citizens, whether in your district or across the country, can do about the situation right now, before the election in November?
MR. HUBER: Yes, they have to secure their own homes.  They have to be able to defend their families.  They have to be prepared for emergencies, whether food or medicines or physical security, weapons, ammunition, whatever.  They should be able to defend their families.  Number one is you have to defend yourself before you can defend your kids; you’re the number one priority as far as self-defense goes.  You have to be able to defend yourself so that you can defend your family.
After that, get as much information as possible, and I think we know all we need to know right now, quite frankly.  The people who are going to be working and active know all they need to know; we don’t have to keep going over the same material, recycling it; we know exactly what’s going on, who the bad guys are and who the good guys are, and what has to be done.  Now we have political solutions and we have non-political solutions.  We should try all options that are available to us.  Second Amendment options are a last resort, but we should be prepared for Second Amendment options.  Freedom is the whole purpose of the Second Amendment:  the right to keep and bear arms.  It’s freedom.  It’s not hunting; it’s not target practice; it’s freedom against tyrants, public and private tyrants, and that’s a natural law.  That’s an unalienable right; that means nobody can take that from you, the right to self-defense.  So don’t let anybody talk you out of it.
Read my website and watch my videos.  I’ve tried to make it a kind of primer to answer the question that you just posed to me.  I have a whole section on strategy and how you can work and do things on your own.  One of the objectives I have with my website is that it be a cut-and-paste, turnkey, do-it-yourself campaign for this type of situation.  Anybody can do it; just change the names if you want, but you don’t need money to do this.  Money is not going to buy people the truth.  And they can’t cover up the truth.  And the more they try to do that…the guys I’m running against have unlimited soft money and millions in hard cash.  I’m staying under the $5,000 limit from the FEC.  I don’t need to have a lot of money; I’m bypassing the corrupt party officials; I’m bypassing the corrupt media, and I’m going straight to the voters as much as I can, and that is effective.  It call it real political campaigning.
MRS. RONDEAU: I believe that’s the way the Founders designed the system.
MR. HUBER: Absolutely; you’re correct.  The millions of dollars between the people and candidate is an artificial barrier that’s been constructed by the people in power just to filter out the greedy from the non-greedy.
MRS. RONDEAU: How do you think your military background has helped you to prepare for what you’re doing now, or is there no connection?
MR. HUBER: No, there’s a great connection:  it’s made me very tough.  It’s made me very realistic and very analytical.  It has caused me to make quick decisions accurately and to be very proactive and to immediately spot the bad guys.  The bad buys, at the very core, are psychopaths.  They may cover it up with a lot of “-isms”; they may say, “I’m a progressive” or “I’m a communist” or “I’m a Democrat,” or whatever they want to call themselves.   Or they have all kinds of excuses, but ultimately, they’re whack-jobs, and they’re just like their predecessors in China with Mao or Stalin in Russia; when the psychopaths have unlimited freedom to do what they want, they kill people, hundreds of millions of people.  That’s what gets them off.  I’ve identified these people; I know exactly who they are; I can spot them a mile away, and you don’t negotiate with them; you don’t pray for them; you don’t reach across the aisle to them; you neutralize them, or they’ll neutralize you.
It’s a life-and-death thing we have here.  We’re not playing around.  The whole world is in the balance.  I get so many hits from around the world because they’re watching what happens here, because they know if we go down, they go down, and it will go fast.  The world will turn into one big death camp, and it will make Pol Pot look like nothing.  The same thing with Mao and Attila the Hun, Stalin, Edi Amin…they will just pale by comparison.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think the rest of the free world understand what’s at stake here?  Do they know what has happened?
MR. HUBER: Absolutely.  I communicate with many grassroots members from around the world who know that we’re sitting on something potentially explosive.  And the guys at the heart of the money game are also psychopaths.  The guys with the money and the Machiavellian communists are two edges of the same sword; it’s a two-edged sword.  It’s the same guy wielding the sword that gives you the false choice of communism, capitalism or free enterprise or Federal Reserve.  They use these techniques as social engineering ways to achieve world government, and they’ve been doing this in nations for hundreds of years.  These are the guys who have to be neutralized.  Every country has its own money problems and political problems, and they have the totalitarians who are political working with the totalitarians in the Federal Reserve, or the Central Bank.  Greece is going through this; Iceland is going it, and the European community is going through this.  The only people who aren’t going through it are China and the Islamic countries because they don’t charge interest for the money, and believe it or not, that is one of the biggest tells of who’s in charge:  the banking structure.
The West has been totally looted and pillaged by the Central Bank.  And of course, the federal banks finance the revolutions so that it causes the governments to borrow from them to fund the wars.  In the case of Kennedy and Lincoln, they said, “No, I’m not going to borrow from you to fund the war, so they printed their own money.  We can do that, but these people have to be fought, and if you look at the history of the Federal Reserve, you’ll see many presidents fought these people.  They viewed them as their mortal enemies, and Jefferson viewed them as mortal enemies of the nation.  So people who don’t profit from history are bound to repeat it, so let’s not repeat it.  Let’s put drive the money-changers out of the temple and into the prisons where they belong.
MRS. RONDEAU: Has the educational system in the country had anything to do with this?
MR. HUBER: Yes, and that’s one of the main reason I home-schooled my kids for ten years.
MRS. RONDEAU: I read that, and you have eight children, so that’s a lot of home-schooling.
MR. HUBER: Well, they all did well, and they’re in good shape.  They all can think for themselves and they know how to find the truth, and that’s something that you can’t have in a New World Order or a centralized government.  You can’t have intelligent slaves or they’ll overthrow you, and they’ll fight for themselves.  So you have to dumb them down, and if you look at my Education plank, I view the NEA and the Department of Education all as political-indoctrination agencies; that’s all they’re doing.  It’s a money waste, a black hole for money.  Most of the departments in the government should be totally abolished, and we’ll just fund the ones that are necessary.  You can find that on my Economy plan, too.
MRS. RONDEAU: What was your most difficult assignment in the military that you’re able to discuss?
MR. HUBER: Pulling away from the pier and leaving my family behind, seeing my little kids crying.  That’s a gut-wrencher that will cut you right to the core.  Then, as I got under way and out to sea, I knew that I was fighting for them and that I was honored and privileged to have that opportunity.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you feel that there are enough Americans who would fight for our freedom if it gets right down to it?
MR. HUBER: Sure.  If you look at history, it has always been the 5% fighting the bad 5% for the benefit of the 90% who sit on the sidelines.  It has been that way in all wars that we’ve had:  the Revolutionary War, Viet Nam, Iraq; it’s always been that way.  There’s always going to be the warrior patriot, Christian defenders of Christendom in Western civilization.  It’s been that way for thousands of years, and yes, there are enough right now.  I’m in regular contact with congressional candidates, senatorial candidates and other officeholders around the United States who are on the same page.  All are Christians and most are veterans, and we’re not going to take any prisoners.  We’re out there to kick some tail, and we’re going to keep it kicked.  It’s not going to be just a slap on the hands.  These guys have to go away for good because there’s too much at stake here.  We’re not going to go half-measure on this.  This is all or nothing.
MRS. RONDEAU: Are there enough other candidates who think like you?
MR. HUBER: Yes.  But they have to be supported.  We’re all in this together; this is no longer a spectator sport.  Your freedom and my freedom are inextricably intertwined.  As I said, I’m not a hired gun; I’m not a political entertainer; I’m not an earmark sugar daddy; I am just volunteering to lead this one battle in this one race to go to Congress, and I expect people to be watching my back and stand beside me, because I can’t do this on my own.  We’re in this together, and if you want your freedom, then by God, you better be there with me.
MRS. RONDEAU: What are the specific needs of your district?  Is there one issue that is more pressing than any other?
MR. HUBER: No, it’s similar to what every other district is experiencing, plus or minus a few percentage points.  What I think is needed in most districts is activism.  As I said, we have to step up to the plate and start fighting. We have to fight as if our lives depend on it because they do depend on it.
MRS. RONDEAU: So that fight dwarfs unemployment or any other issue?
MR. HUBER: Yes, that’s just a symptom.
MRS. RONDEAU: Regarding the Department of Justice’s stated legal challenge  to Arizona regarding its new immigration law, what do you think should happen?
MR. HUBER: What should happen is that the troops should be moved down to the border and it should be closed.  That probably won’t happen under Obama because he is using the border and the Mexican invasion to destroy the country.  When people say, “Well, Ernest, how can you say that?” and I answer, “People intend the natural and probable consequences of their behaviors, and if you don’t defend the border and you pay the people for coming in and invading your country, they’re going to invade the country.  And if you don’t do anything about it, then you intend that to happen.  So there’s an intent that’s implied there, and it’s easily inferred.  But what will happen with Holder is that he will try to fight (Governor) Jan Brewer, and the Supreme Court will more than likely…well, it’s a tossup which way it will go.  But regardless of how it goes, the citizens are going to defend themselves, and the citizens’ right of self-defense overrides the Constitution, and it overrides the Supreme Court.  If I have a Mexican coming into my house, I’m going to shoot him, and if I lived on the border and he’s coming across the border, I’d shoot him then, too.  And that’s what these people are doing; they’re finding that they’ve been pacified and over-civilized and shamed into surrender.  And that’s garbage, total garbage.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think the residents of Arizona will rally and just say, “Look, we’re not putting up with this”?
MR. HUBER: They already are.  There was a rally in Tempe just a couple of nights ago, and I watched it streaming live, and Sheriff Joe was there and a lot of my other friends, and they just said, “Hell, no, we’re not going to do this any more.  You’re crazy.”  What I’d like to see is for them to get into a standoff, and I think that the military or the National Guard would support the Arizona governor, and I don’t think our military would fire on its own people.  And to call out troops to aid and abet in the invasion of our nation…man, you would start a civil war with that.  But we have to avoid that, and the best way to do that is to surgically remove those people who are causing the rot.
MRS. RONDEAU: How many of them do you think there are in Washington, DC?
MR. HUBER: I would imagine that as a rough estimate, that 10,000 have to be in jail right now, and that probably 100 should be facing capital punishment.
MRS. RONDEAU: Why do you think former President Bush didn’t do more about the borders?
MR. HUBER: That’s a big hypothetical, and I don’t know what his motives were, and I don’t care.  I urged his impeachment for that when he was in office.  It was horrible.  But Obama has taken it to a new level, and he’s totally accelerated and exacerbated it.  Whatever the reasons were or are, it’s going to stop; the illegals are going to be deported, and we’re going to get back to constitutional government.  Anybody who doesn’t like it is going to prison.
MRS. RONDEAU: Is there anything you’d like to add, Mr. Huber?
MR. HUBER: I want people to read my website, watch my YouTube videos, and understand that we’re fighting this together, and we have to prevail.  I want people to understand that they have to rapidly acquire a fierce mindset to defeat deadly enemies.  We have to acquire this mindset of fierceness immediately.  That’s the only way we’re going to be able to make this work in order to save our bacon. We just have to escalate and keep escalating until we accomplish our goals.

We Must Stop This↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

Roller Blade, Roller Blade high will you go? (psst, I think this guy is a little nuts)

Another amusing musing...

It's one thing for people to think that you're crazy, but it's bad when they think you're incompetent and crazy. ~ Whatever happened to our image? Must be lousy leadership.

"It's one thing for people to think that you're crazy, but it's bad when they think you're incompetent and crazy, and that's the way we look."

Says One Israeli General: 'Everybody Thinks We're Bananas'

Sorry about the intermittent blogging, I'm actually in Israel on a reporting trip, not a blogging trip (I don't think The Atlantic would send me overseas to blog, though maybe that's the next big thing). And what am I reporting on, you ask? Well, you'll have to subscribe to find out.

But: I happen to be around a lot of Israeli generals lately, and one I bumped into today said something very smart and self-aware: "Does everybody in the world think we're bananas?" He did not let me respond before he said, "Wait, I know the answer: The whole world thinks we're bananas." I asked this general if this was a good thing or a bad thing. After all, Nixon seemed bananas and he achieved great things internationally. So did Menachem Begin. This is what the general said, however: "It's one thing for people to think that you're crazy, but it's bad when they think you're incompetent and crazy, and that's the way we look."

There's real pain in Israel today, pain at the humiliation of the flotilla raid, pain on behalf of the injured soldiers, and pain that the geniuses who run this country could not figure out a way to out-smart a bunch of Turkish Islamists and their useful idiot fellow travelers. And no, there is no particular pain felt for the dead on the boat; the video of those peace-seeking peace activists beating on the paintball commandos with metal bars pretty much canceled out whatever feelings of sympathy Israelis might have otherwise felt. Plus, most Israelis are aware, unlike much of the rest of the world, that these ships were not on a humanitarian mission, but a political mission, one meant to lend support to Hamas, which seeks Israel's destruction, so you might have to excuse Israelis for not sympathizing overly much.

Of course, many Israelis feel more sympathy for these Hamasish (a new word!) activists than they do for their own leaders, who steered their small, no-margin-for-error Jewish country into a fairly obvious ambush. The anger is directed at the prime minister, of course, but especially at the defense minister, Ehud Barak, who previously was thought of as a brilliant man, and at the army chief of staff, Gabi Ashkenazi, who is -- or was -- also thought of as smart and clever. Ari Shavit, one of Israel's most important and perceptive columnists, wrote today that:
During the 2006 war in Lebanon I concluded that my 15-year-old daughter could have conducted it more wisely than the Olmert-Peretz government. We've progressed. Today it's clear to me that my 6-year-old son could do much better than our current government. Even a child would have seen the imbalance in the risk-threat assessment in overpowering the flotilla ships. Any smart kid would understand that you don't sacrifice what is important for what is not. But the cabinet did not understand. Under the leadership of Netanyahu, Barak and (Minister for Strategic Affairs Moshe) Ya'alon it came to a patently unreasonable decision. It was a decision of complete fools.
I'm not going to predict the political fall-out from this, because I'm not clever enough to fully grasp Israeli coalition politics. But the feelings of shame and embarrassment are palpable, and someone will have to pay a price.

About that shame and embarrassment: I just met with the son of a friend who serves in an elite Israeli army unit, one very much similiar to Flotilla 13, the Naval commando unit deployed so disastrously against the anti-Israel flotilla, and he explained the shame this way: "These soldiers are the best we have. We are Israel's deterrent. People in the Middle East need to think we are the best, and we are the best, except that when we're sent into situations without any intelligence, without any direction, with paintball guns instead of sufficient weapons, with no understanding of who we're fighting. Then we're going to have a disaster. These commandos were beaten with pipes! They came onto the deck (of the ship) one by one down a rope and they were beaten by a mob! Commandos! It's amazing that they didn't kill everyone on the ship, once they regrouped. Just amazing. The whole story is amazing."

Yes it is. And it is a story with deep consequences.
