As we all know, a new Right was invented, just before the countries 240th birthday. I’m not so sure it is a Right or more of a mandate to the States, they MUST ISSUE a marriage license to same sex couples. Personally, I could care less about the subject. While I’m a Christian, I’m also not God and will not stand in judgment of others on an issue that is a religious one. That is God’s position, I will not pretend that I somehow have that great authority. This decision will bring up some other problems. Will those States that lost in the SCOTUS decision take a different approach to solving the dilemma of being against gay marriage? How many States will simply get out of the marriage license business, where they really don’t belong anyway. Will the States simply set up Kiosks throughout the State and take the personal side of issuing these licenses out of the game, thus avoiding conflicts (my idea to best solve the problem)? Will they simply change the language of the marriage license to a Civil Union contract for tax and other purposes?
But what about the civilian side of things. Many of us were totally against forcing business’s to do business where they do not want to. I could bring up hundreds of examples why this should never be forced upon any business, but all of you could do the same, so I’ll save some time. But I can argue this one with examples all day long why some courts were dead wrong on the subject of gay marriage. Lastly, SCOTUS made a decision that is a licensing issue, not really a ceremony issue. States must issue a license and all states must accept that license, much like a driver’s license. Using the 14th Amendment to magically make this new Right, I would like to once again ask why this same ruling cannot be applied to conceal carry license holders. Currently there is 36 “will issue” States, much like Gay marriage was prior. If the ruling applies to one license, making a new Right, then why not also another license (as applied to being accepted in all States, plus “will issue in the 14 States not on the list), that has been a Right since the inception of the Nation. If gay’s, a none protected class, can receive this special ruling, why can’t those who want to exercise a guaranteed Right no matter what State they are in, receive the same? Outside of the obvious part that it hasn’t reached SCOTUS for a decision if love is love, in all 50 states, then rights are rights too!
The past couple weeks have been full of controversial news as well as the normal stuff. Violence in Detroit last weekend was ignored, as usual, by the Left Wing media. It’s not an issue when black people kill black people or when gangs simply shoot into large party crowds. The current attack on the Confederate Battle Flag seems far more important. Many Southerners are coming out and fighting back, as numerous rally’s took place yesterday. No arrests were made and no cities were burning, despite the fact that many in the South see their heritage under attack. This is a Progressive move, trying to destroy the history of the past and replace it with the new “Progressive” thinking. This strategy has a history. Mao Tse-tung in 1966, initiated the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, a program to remove “counter-revolutionary” elements of Chinese society that lasted 10 years and which was marked by violent class struggle, widespread destruction of cultural artifacts and unprecedented elevation of Mao’s personality cult . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mao_Zedong
In short, what’s happening in the United States is nothing new. History is repeating itself once again. Under Mao is responsible for an estimated 40 to 70 million deaths through starvation, forced labour, and executions, ranking his tenure as the top incidence of democide in human history. Could this be what is in store for the United States? The Cultural Revolution seems to have begun. History is being rewritten on a daily basis. If one reads the linked history of Mao, there are many things within the history that appear almost daily on the internet. Mao’s use of re-education camps (Hillary Happy FEMA camps) is one that should make everyone shutter. Things are much different today. But, I ask only one question. How hard would it be to use food as a weapon against the people of the US? It’s been said that most are only 9 meals from starvation. Just some food for thought!
It takes very little time for the Lefties of our society to climb all over a new tragedy. A mass shooting in a Christian church in South Carolina kills 9 people. While that should be the real story, the fact that the killer was white and the victims black, brings racism right back in to every ones homes who watch the MSM. Of course, the left Wing gun grabbers will be up in arms wanting to take guns from law abiding citizens, with no answer on how to take the guns from the criminals. I , as others, have posted numerous links and stories about the violence in Chicago and Baltimore over the last Memorial Day weekend, yet no speeches from the President and not mush of anything from the gun grabbers, because most, if not all of the violence that weekend was committed by blacks, against blacks. Here is our sorry ass President today:
WE don’t even know the whole story of this tragedy yet, but Gun Grabber -N -Chief is out flapping his gums about how this don’t happen in other 1st world countries, which is a lie in it’s entirety. The UK has 4 times the violent crime, per capita than the US, and they have some serious gun control. Nothing Obama say’s can be taken seriously anymore, he has ZERO credibility (too bad his flock still believes his bullshit).
When I first heard of this tragedy, my first thought was another young person, on Psych meds, loses his mind again. I didn’t think of racism, or even the war on Christians, I thought of more victims of Big Pharma. It is easy to see the correlation, considering the past mass murderers who have been on these meds. The Left Wing have been pushing a race war, pushing anti-Christianity and when that is combined with a mentally ill person, this is what may happen. However, I will with hold any conclusion until the information comes out, IF IT COMES OUT!. I have no doubt that information that may look bad for Obama and the Left will be suppressed or ignored, but, in time, the alternative media will get the truth out. I follow those who are not of any political affiliation, and I don’t link them here.
As is the usual, it’s always an open forum here. My opinions are normally ignored, disliked or ignored, so talking about other stuff is cool! I’m working on a new article, that will take us back in time. It will be nothing more than past comments and how those comments ended up, true or false (or somewhere in the middle). Or, ya’ll can tell me that’s a bad idea :)
It’s mid June and so far, we are actually having a summer, unlike last year. The garden is booming and the deer have dropped their fawns. The only thing that would make things better is Washington DC falling into a black hole. Can’t have everything I guess! If anyone wants to volunteer to keep this blog running for a while, feel free to do so. It’s not that hard, few people pay attention to the articles and it can be both rewarding and frustrating. Despite all that, it’s for the SUFA family, which sometimes acts like a real family when some disagree :) . This is an open offer, it is not because I’m quitting or can’t do it going forward. If you want to talk privately, I will provide my email.
This article, with Life of Illusions suggestion being a big part of it, will focus on something that was said during the lead up to the 2008 Presidential election. I am rather unfortunate to have been “in touch” with what was said since it was said. Here it is:
This is the whole speech given by Obama, stating he wanted a National police force as strong as the military. I actually sat through this whole thing again, because I’m sure this will be posted: http://www.factcheck.org/2008/11/obamas-national-security-force/ The last line in the Factcheck article is this: Does that sound like a force that could kick down your door in the middle of the night and haul you off to a Gulag or concentration camp? You decide.
Yes, you decide if the SWAT raids are doing exactly what the question asks. You decide if the attack on the police departments, small and large, are not an attempt to Federalize the police force. Think about it! While Factcheck claims it’s about AmeriCorps. the whole idea of AmeriCorps being a police force is absurd on it’s face. However, the DHS isn’t: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Homeland_Security
Listening to Obama’s speech above, and the many, many historical connotations spoken, it’s a very small stretch to see an endgame to what is currently going on when it comes to our police. McKinney Texas is just another example of how the MSM is playing a major role in this. Here’s your chance to see the future, as told by Obama, as it’s happening.
Going back in time, here’s an article from January: http://www.wnd.com/2015/01/obamas-promised-civilian-force-its-happening/
Good Morning SUFA :) Keep the conversations going. Recent topics include: To metric or not to metric, why are so many kids having mental problems, and what are our educators doing? Then there are subjects like: why is a college professor asking the Fed’s to test West Coasters for nuclear exposure (to which the Fed’s have declined)? New warnings about Pacific seafood. The Conspiracy Theory world is still very abuzz about Jade helm 15 and all other military movements (you would be amazed at how many people actually film and forward this stuff). It is nice to see people starting to pay attention to what’s going on around them instead of being focused on the Duggar stupidity and Caitlyn Jenner’s science experiment.
Here’s a small taste of my effort to be more politically correct :D
The Environmental Protection Agency was happy to announce that they, along with the Army Corps of Engineers, have reached a final rule that would once and for all decide the fate of any body of water around the country and protect it as a “waters of the United States.”
Under this update to the Clean Water Act (CWA) and with public health in mind, the EPA can now fully regulate and control any water on any property they determine to drain or flow to another body of water used for public consumption or use. From the ruling:
This final rule interprets the CWA to cover those waters that require protection in order to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, or biological integrity of traditional navigable waters, interstate waters, and the territorial seas. This interpretation is based not only on legal precedent and the best available peer-reviewed science, but also on the agencies’ technical expertise and extensive experience in implementing the CWA over the past four decades. The rule will clarify and simplify implementation of the CWA consistent with its purposes through clearer definitions and increased use of bright-line boundaries to establish waters that are jurisdictional by rule and limit the need for case-specific analysis. The agencies emphasize that, while the CWA establishes permitting requirements for covered waters to ensure protection of water quality, these requirements only apply with respect to discharges of pollutants to the covered water. In the absence of a discharge of a pollutant, the CWA does not impose permitting restrictions on the use of such water.
Basically, if it rains, the EPA could technically fine you if you use weed killer or some fertilizer’s. In my case, I live at the top of an area that is surrounded by flowing creeks in every direction. Because rain water flows down to these creeks in one fashion or another, the EPA could fine the average person for simply using weed killer on their lawn (I don’t, but just saying). It is easy to see water runoff and it’s pathway.
It will be interesting to watch and see some of the insane actions this rule will garnish. It’s just another way for the Fed’s to extort money from the people.
First it was in Ferguson, Missouri. Then it was in Baltimore, Maryland. Now, it’s in Clevelend, Ohio. These are events surrounding the actions of police officers and blacks. Hopefully, Cleveland will not slip into the riot trap, but it’s still early and the paid instigators are just getting there. That’s for Buck :) . What has happened most recently, in response to all the protest’s, chants of killing cops, Hands Up, Don’t Shoot and the actual assassination of police officers, is the police have stood down and are no longer engaging in proactive policing. Results, huge spikes in crime and shootings in Baltimore and Chicago on Memorial Day. Now, people are crying the blues that it’s the cops fault for not protecting the public. Newsflash folks, it isn’t the cops job to protect the public. Blacks wanted the cops out of their communities and that’s what they have gotten, a response that seems to be to their own detriment. If Black Lives matter, they should have mattered a long time ago when they were slaughtering each other in the streets of our cities. It’s cultural violence that will not go away, with or without the presence of police, until they have finally wiped up the streets with their last drop of blood. The police never could stop black on black killings, but at least they seemed to slow things down a little. Now, we are seeing something that is rare in our time. WE are seeing blacks without their police baby sitters, because that is what they demanded. They asked, they demanded, but they weren’t careful. Now they have to deal with the results of their actions. What a waste of life.
On Monday many of us will pay homage to those who gave their lives so that we can be free. While some may disagree with the wars and the politics of those war, these men and women all believed very deeply in the Oath they took for the privilege of serving the greatest people on earth. They deserve our respect, for giving everything of themselves for those of us who remain and future generations. I’m also going to ask that on Monday that each one of you have your significant other or your child or a friend bend you over and give you (and I) a good swift kick in the ass. We have failed these people and have lost many of the freedoms they died for. The 4th and 5th Amendments are effectively dead. The 1st and 2nd Amendment are under constant attack by those who would rather be subjugated than to be free. We have allowed our governments to become corrupt and self serving, and knowing this, many go right straight to the polls on election day and give permission for this to continue. Our fallen are rolling over in their graves along with the founding fathers. Shame on all of us. It’s past time to start coming up with solutions that might work. If you think that to continue to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result deserve to be called insane. Please enjoy your weekend and stay safe! SUFA is full of great people! Enjoy your Memorial Day!
Thought I would add to the normal open subject forum to discuss the current drought and it’s possible effects on the population of those States being affected. Looking at the US drought situation there are about 55 million people effected by the current conditions. Looking at the picture below, it shows the severity of the situation.
AS you can see, California is in some dire straights, with Nevada not far behind. Water is essential to human life in so many ways, the future may lead to some very unwanted actions by the residents effected. For the sake of this article, let’s assume that this drought continues to worsen at it’s present pace. The darker colored areas will grow and the number of people affected will grow with it. I have read that the Colorado River is no longer is no longer flowing to it’s final destination. Lake Meade is at it’s lowest level since being filled. If there isn’t enough water to maintain the population, what will happen?

Going to continue to keep things running smoothly. Thought I’d put in another pic from the trail cam. This one is new!
I often wonder if the very smart people in this country are open minded enough to see the obvious. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the smartest person on this site. I am still in my lifelong learning phase, which will only end upon my death. I like asking questions. I like to question the “official story” when the story doesn’t fit what I see and read. I’m often ridiculed for doing that. I have no problem with that and hope that those that choose to ridicule will at least try to look at what we can, or cannot, see.
It’s Spring, YIPPEE! It’s also a busy time for me. It’s country music, hard work and lot’s of time outdoors, where I like to be. After the rain moved on, I managed to get my new beans planted, tomorrow morning, I plant the potatoes. I love this time of year because it brings new life! I feel blessed that I can get the pictures I get and share with all of you. I have found my nirvana and live it everyday!
It’s so cool that so much information is posted here on SUFA, it’s almost better than any media site, because we can lay it out and talk about it. Today, it came to me that what we are reading and talking about isn’t what we think about, but it’s obvious. To be clear, the obvious is right in front of all of us, it’s called DIVISION! One of the interesting things about history, this is not new, just unseen because of all the distractions. Let’s review some of the many ways the American people are being divided.
Left Wing vs. Right Wing. Blacks vs. Whites. Blacks vs. police. Right Wing vs. gays. Right wing vs woman (via feminists). As documented, tea party, 2nd Amendment supporters, Constitutionalist’s, Libertarian’s and Ron Paul supporters vs. the government and the Left Wing (amongst many others) and the list can continue. Shit, even bakers, photographers and pizza joints are under attack. This my friends is a major effort at division. Who would want this? Why? That’s the discussion!
I will say this. When the government becomes so paranoid that they must spy on and control the people who elect them, then make every attempt to divide them, it is only because they have become rogue. A divided populace cannot take down a rogue government without the military, which has been purged and weakened. Yet another clue to what the future holds. The actions of people concerning a military exercise is an indicator that the people have lost the trust of their government.
The question is, what’s next ? If we can’t answer this question, we are doomed!
As this will be an open mic, as promised I’d like to share some trail cam pictures from the entrance of a fox den. Like many, pictures of the young in nature are cherished and enjoyed. What a wonderful view of natures finest!
It seems to be a good idea to just discuss whatever comes to mind or ongoing events in real time as we have been for quite some time. While it can be fun to write or just pass on an interesting article, it’s difficult to maintain a lengthy discussion on just one subject. This is especially true when events like the Baltimore riots take place. Here, once again, we have riots in mostly black neighborhoods after the death of another black person, this time, when in police custody. Both have somethings in common. Both occur before the facts are released, both have nearly 50 of the same internet social accounts involved in some way or another. This is pointing to someone or some entity pushing the buttons to get the violence rolling. Could this be sanctioned by Obama or his Administration? Didn’t Obama basically say that Congress isn’t likely going to send the needed funds to the inner cities, or redistribute the wealth? The answer will come when a whistleblower comes out or the alternative media investigates deeper. Right now, most of the conspiracy sites are focused on Jade Helm 15.
For now, another event that can give many of us a mental break from all the insanity, the NFL Draft begins with the 1st round tonight at 8 est. Enjoy the circus and Go Dolphins :)
Battlefield America: The War on the American People
By John W. Whitehead
April 20, 2015
“A government which will turn its tanks upon its people, for any reason, is a government with a taste of blood and a thirst for power and must either be smartly rebuked, or blindly obeyed in deadly fear.”—John Salter
We have entered into a particularly dismal chapter in the American narrative, one that shifts us from a swashbuckling tale of adventure into a bone-chilling horror story.
As I document in my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, “we the people” have now come full circle, from being held captive by the British police state to being held captive by the American police state. In between, we have charted a course from revolutionaries fighting for our independence and a free people establishing a new nation to pioneers and explorers, braving the wilderness and expanding into new territories.
I couldn’t help but enjoying Black Flags very optimistic demise of the American Empire that he recently posted. Using the historical demise of Rome as an example, I found it to be a refreshing view of today’s turbulent times. I have just about given up on predicting the future, as it’s nearly impossible, with some exceptions. Exceptions, while not really predictions, but an understanding of events that are likely to occur in the future. One such prediction I feel is very plausible is a major power outage. This could be a local issue due to weather, it could be regional, also due to weather or maybe an attack on the electrical grid. It could also be a National event, due to a major solar storm or a nuclear EMP attack by one of our many enemies. I think we all can agree, that a few short years ago the “Cold War” was part of the history books. Now, it has reared it’s ugly head again. Without electricity, this nation could regress very quickly into a very dangerous place. Let’s hope that any power outages are just kept down in size and scope.
Lies, lies, everywhere there are lies. What the hell is the truth anymore? How many lies have been told by the current administration in D.C.? Or the last five or six administrations? Far too many to write about in a blog post. Maybe one thing our Liar-N-Chief has stated in the past is the love of Lincoln and likening himself to the same. Here’s an excerpt from a recent article about Lincoln from here: http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/04/13/power-lies/
The purpose of Lincoln’s war was to save the empire, not to abolish slavery. In his first inaugural address Lincoln “made an ironclad defense of slavery.” His purpose was to keep the South in the Empire despite the Morrill Tariff. As for slavery, Lincoln said: “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.” This position, Lincoln reminded his audience, was part of the 1860 Republican Party platform. Lincoln also offered his support for the strong enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act, which required Northerners to hunt down and return runaway slaves, and he gave his support to the Corwin Amendment to the Constitution, already passed by Northern votes in the House and Senate, that prohibited any federal interference with slavery. For Lincoln and his allies, the empire was far more important than slaves.
Lincoln was likely a very bad President when it came to silencing those opposed to him, as bad as the Nazi’s of German lore in the 30’s and 40’s. Had Lincoln not been assassinated, it’s possible he could have been President for a very long time. Possibly, until he died. His claim of saving the Union and freeing the slaves could have made all of this possible. Fast forward to our time and maybe there is a lot about Obama that gives his “I’m like Lincoln” claim some validity. He has clamped down on those who oppose him, notably in the military hierarchy. The IRS and DOJ attacks against law abiding citizens is also another example of what a modern day Lincoln may have done or did do back in his day.
The only thing missing is a major war. Or maybe it just hasn’t started yet.
As I write this, it’s only a day away from April 1st, which was at one time a very fun day for me. I put together some rather extravagant jokes when I used to work at the hospital in Ohio. All of which played out perfectly. Screwing with the wildlife these days just don’t seem to have the same affect :) It is time for a new thread to go up to keep these bustling along at a rapid pace. PEACE!
Well, here we are on March 23rd and it’s a whole 14 degrees outside. WTF? I’m sure that ALL of us in the North are quite tired of winter and the cold. I have dreams of sunshine and 80’s with a chance of a thunderstorm. That’s summer weather for the most part around here. I have made a prediction with a friend of mine, based on current events (that I have linked too) involving the US and Russia. That one is simple, before Sept 2016, a nuke will go off somewhere on US soil (hopefully just one). Yes, it’s a bold and probably a crazy prediction, but I put it out there for all to see. I won’t hurt my feelings if anyone calls me crazy either, as I’m used to it, so fire away. I’ll be following these events and post anything important as they come available. Hopefully, I’m really wrong. I won’t be losing any money, so that’s no big deal. However, if I’m right, we could be experiencing communication problems. In the meantime, we can all chat about the normal stuff that we chat about. Enjoy my Friends :)
Spring is just a couple day away! Many of us who live in the North look forward to some warmer weather. It’s been a cold winter, unusually cold where I live. I’ve seen cold weather in the past, it’s not a big surprise, but it sucks none the less :) We are heading into some unknown territory on many fronts as a nation. Times will be very interesting going forward, Good Luck.
Good Morning SUFA! As we continue on our journey we call life, I can’t help but be concerned as to the health and wellbeing of our friend Life of Illusion. I will try and contact him today. On an other note, it seems that Russia is getting ready for some big announcement. The Flag over the Kremlin is oddly missing for the second straight day. What many people think is that Putin’s newly born child will become very famous this weekend. Considering what is being constructed for this announcement, this must be one really big baby, LOL. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend!
