They Didn’t Love Freedom Enough

Ft Collins, CO –-( “When you told Genghis Kahn you would kill his children, he would tell you, “Go ahead!” But, realize that the cost will be infinite, that he will tear down your cities and nations, and the price will never be paid.

He did not lie, and his enemies knew it. His word was iron!” ~ Conn Iggulden

Fast forward eight hundred years!

Unlike Genghis Kahn, world “leaders” of today, at least in the West, have feet of clay. Their “word” is a joke! Once in a great while, amid endless mumbling, they finally articulate a promise or even a threat, but everyone knows it is all fictitious delusion! They’re not really going to do anything, no matter what they say and no matter the gravity of the provocation, and everyone knows it.

Iran blatantly violates the very nuclear “agreement” they, with a laughing sneer, signed just a few months ago, the agreement in which we give them everything they wanted, and more, and got nothing in return.

Even then, they violate it almost casually, knowing BHO won’t object, but instead will actually make excuses for them.

North Korea tests long-range missiles, in violation of countless “agreements,” and the West does nothing.

Vlad P, in classic “cold-war” fashion, blatantly runs mock attacks with his fighter jets on our Navy ships in international waters, and BHO permits it, doing nothing more than mumbling a faint objection… after the fact.

Our friends in eastern Europe and Israel are deathly nervous, and should be! They know Vlad P has done in Eurasia and the Middle East pretty much anything he wants militarily, and the only “response” from the West has been, and will continue to be, confused grumbling, no action, and a short memory!

The current crop of bullies in this world, who resemble Genghis Karn (minus the personal dignity and honor), continue to make monkeys out of BHO and most of the other ostensible “leaders” of Western democracies.

Their boldness will enlarge exponentially as every challenge goes unanswered, and the West ever flounders in denial and bewildered paralysis.

The US is now an unreliable ally and friend. Our (former) allies and friends know and understand that, even when they say it only in whispers. They know they are on their own, just a we are as individuals.

May it not be said of us by future historians,

“They didn’t love freedom enough. As a nation of free men, we must live through all time, or die by suicide. ” ~ Lincoln

Neither side of the aisle really want the boat rocked because they don’t want the gravy train to stop. What they fail to recognize is, that for the vast majority of us, there is no boat ,or liferaft anymore. WELL GEUSS WHAT IT’S TIME TO SINK THEIR F-ING BOAT! We call that basic justice where I live. And not for many , many ,hundreds of miles out here do many folks see it much differently. That also is why political class is fresh out of friends ,out here in flyover country! NOT a good situation for those that think they… Read more »

Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a most sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people, that can, may revolutionize, and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit.” Abraham Lincoln, in an 1848… Read more »


Thanks to Obama.
He has set the stage for the next SHOTS HEARD AROUND THE WORLD.
If there are any freedom fighters left in this country we will get ready
and take OUR COUNTRY back.


Obama is the most successful U.S President. Aided by the passivity of the Republicans in the Congress, he has “fundamentally transformed The United States of America”. That’s what happens when Americans elect a man twice, who hates The United States.


Right on hippybiker.
We have a leader who continually whimpers with his tail between his legs.


Jimboy, don’t pick on the Dear Leader; he is busy on his farewell apology tour. He cannot let The Clinton Foundation get all the goodies from our BFF in the east. He thinks he knows where Shillary lost the 6 Billion State Dept. funds.
Good thing a New AF1 is in the pipe, Bozo has a bigger carbon footprint than the entire domestic airline fleet carrying 1/1000th the passengers.


Remember the 19th of April. “Where once those embittered farmers stood, and fired the shot hears round the world.” April 19th 1775 “Patriots Day.”Too bad we don’t many men like those anymore! Especially in “The District of Criminals.”
