So, am I offered Thirty-One?

By Mike Cunningham On November 30th, 2012 at 10:13 am

One of the best definitions of Government is a body or group which dedicates itself to the defence of the Nation-State. In these troubled times, we hold a small standing Army, a very-much reduced Navy and a Royal Air Force which must be checked under a microscope to find its component parts. These three arms of the Services have been treated savagely by Labour, and much the same by the Conservatives; both in terms of funding of manpower and equipment, as well as in direction. We are an Island Nation. We depend upon free passage for our imports, as well as the ever-diminishing flow of exports from our harbours and ports. We have surrendered much of our Sovereignty to foreigners, and we, or rather the various bunches of lying thieves and vagabonds masquerading as politicians have not only decimated our capability to defend ourselves, they have arranged things so that those decimations are permanent.

One of the driving forces behind a good defence structure is the ability to provide fuel for your aircraft, for your ships; and of course for the various methods of transporting large numbers of soldiers into harms way, if that is what is deemed necessary. To depend upon others, to allow your very power and motive infrastructure to be controlled by someone other than a sworn officer, is to accept that your very core is capable of being compromised. If you cannot refuel your aircraft, if you cannot run your trucks, tanks or mobile artillery, if you cannot be certain that your warships can be refuelled ahead of all others in a queue; you have arranged for surrender without the purchase of a white flag.

So one can understand why the bunch of lying thieves who masquerade under the title of the Coalition Government have slipped out, well-hidden in the fairly small print of the Energy Bill, itself further evidence of that  sheer lunacy known as the Climate Change Act, the most expensive piece of legislation probably introduced in this country since the Welfare State; the proposed sale of the only hardware specifically designed to keep safe the means of refuelling all our Armed Forces , safe as in protected by both guns as well as Statute. The ConDoms are proposing to sell off the Ministry of Defence (MOD) held asset that supplies aviation fuel to military airbases in the UK, as well as a number of civilian airports.

This asset, known as the the Government Pipeline and Storage System (GPSS) was established to provide a secure oil distribution network for the United Kingdom at the beginning of World War Two in 1939. Over many years the pipeline route has been extended and amended until it now covers approximately 2,500 km of pipe and associated storage depots, pumping stations and other sites. The GPSS distributes about 40 per cent of the aviation fuel within the UK and is used to supply important commercial airports such as Heathrow and Gatwick, along with Royal Air Force (RAF) and United States Air Force bases in England and Scotland.

One presumes the price will be slightly in excess of the statutory Thirty Pieces of Silver, but not by much!

Really?

This is what the She-Beast is up to, besides being pelted with Tomatoes.

Clinton waives conditions placed by Congress on the 1.3 billion dollars of aid – requiring Egypt to meet certain democratic reforms before being granted the funds.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton gave the green light Friday for U.S. military aid to Egypt despite concerns that Cairo was not meeting goals in its democratic transition.

Clinton waived conditions placed by Congress on the 1.3 billion dollars of aid – requiring Egypt to meet certain democratic reforms before being granted the funds – saying the move was in the United States’ national interest.

“These decisions reflect America’s over-arching goal: to maintain our strategic partnership with an Egypt made stronger and more stable by a successful transition to democracy,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Now she does these actions on behalf of the American Public at the Orders of President Obama. The other issue is even more troublesome.

The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which she will sign on Friday the 27th is a direct assault on the American Public and the U.S, Constitution. Now there are not enough votes in the Senate to Ratify it, but it doesn’t have to be ratified, to be implemented. If a Treaty is signed by the Secretary of State, and not renounced by the President, and not voted on by the Senate IT BECOMES THE LAW.

On July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment.

The ATT will set up a global body which will require all nations to regulate firearms so that they can prevent their exportation to other countries. Inevitably, this will require countries to inventory the guns in private hands and to register them. A gun ban is not far away.

The ATT, under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, would have the power of a constitutional amendment and would, effectively, repeal the Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms.

If after she signs this Treaty Obama is reelected there will be people coming door to door for our guns. There will be blood. Do not underestimate the venom and violence that the American Public will react with. I posted a clip of what the head of the NRA said to the U.N. and he represents the sane gun owners.

U.S. Constitution: Second Amendment A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Whose original intent was to ensure our Freedom against the Tyranny of the State. The PEOPLE shall be allowed to own and carry their guns so that if the POLITICIANS become a threat to our FREEDOMS the People can form Militias and over throw the Government by force if necessary. It has nothing to do with Hunters….

Yes, well, maybe we can re-arm!

Ancient Chinese Wisdom

By ATWadmin On June 19th, 2008 at 2:44 am

One of the many hats I wear is a  “chauffeur” hat. And, like all chauffeurs, I spend a lot of time waiting.   Recently, I found myself waiting outside of a Chinese class. In addition to mahjong and haggling, I‘ve noticed that the Chinese greatly value education and they actively encourage study.  Perhaps it is for this reason that I was offered a spot in the Beginning Chinese class, while I wait, and at no extra cost. In any case, I am now a proud student of Mandarin Chinese.

Which brings me to the subject of this post ….to your left kingdom.jpgis a traditional Mandarin Chinese character and it is found in Chinese words for “China,” “America,” and “United Kingdom.”    Look at the character closely.  Like all traditional Chinese characters, it contains a story.  The rectangular frame on the outside is a boundary, or a border.  The little square inside the border is land. And the vertical stroke, with two horizontal strokes and a dot?  Well…that’s a sword.    This character means “country,” or “kingdom.”  In traditional Mandarin, a country is a sovereign piece of physical land surrounded by a border and protected by the sword.
 
Now, some Western Liberals, and America’s Democrat Party, would have us believe that sovereign nations can exist without  “the sword."   Consider the longstanding muscular pacifism of Western Europe.   The “war is not the answer” crowd actively encourages the disbanding of Western military forces. Internationalists claim that a supra-power like the UN can, and should, have the final word over sovereign nation states and  Western Liberals in Europe and in America would have us believe that protecting the borders of nation states is optional.

I think our “peaceniks” are naïve and dangerously wrong, though.  Dangerously wrong.  We in the West should heed ancient Chinese wisdom: a country = physical land, with borders, protected by ”the sword.”   Anything  less and a country will cease to exist.

Red Meat For The Leftisphere

Here’s something for Vladimir Paranoid and the Parallel Universe to search furiously for phantoms.

Bush Orders Cuts in Nuclear Stockpile

President Bush has approved “a significant reduction” in the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile, cutting it to less than one-quarter its size at the end of the Cold War, the White House said Tuesday.

At the same time, the Energy Department announced plans to consolidate the nuclear weapons complex that maintains warheads and dismantle those no longer needed, saying the current facilities need to be made more efficient and more easily secured and that the larger complex is no longer needed.

“We are reducing our nuclear weapons stockpile to the lowest level consistent with America’s national security and our commitments to friends and allies,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said. “A credible deterrent remains an essential part of U.S. national security, and nuclear forces remain key to meeting emerging security challenges.”

The government will not provide any numbers on the overall size of the nuclear stockpile, but there are believed to be nearly 6,000 warheads that either are deployed or in reserve.

Separately, under terms of a 2002 arms control treaty with Russia, the U.S. is committed to reducing the number of deployed warheads to between 1,700 and 2,200 by 2012.

Three years ago, Bush said he wanted the overall stockpile reduced to half by 2012, but officials said that goal now has been reached so further reductions are being made, resulting in the new targets for 2012.

[….]

So, while eeeevil Bushchimphitler is reducing the nuclear stockpile, Vladimir Paranoid is threatening to nuke Poland & the Czech Republic and has developed a new ICBM.

Koslings, where art thou???
