The United States is under direct and sustained attack by the combined forces of the tyrannical far left and radical Islam, punctuated by humiliation abroad and despair at home.
We are losing because unlike Walter Mitty, whose delusions were confined to his own head, Barack Obama has been permitted to play out his most destructive leftist and pro-Islamic fantasies in real-time from the most powerful office on the planet.
Obama behaves like a dictator not just because he is a narcissist, but because his political beliefs are, at their core, authoritarian. He represents a perfect anti-American storm, the amalgamation of twin totalitarian ideologies, Marxist-Leninism and Islamic extremism, both dedicated to the destruction of Judeo-Christian civilization.
Obama cannot counter threats from abroad because he is sympathetic to them, while simultaneously pursuing domestic policies that generate economic malaise, fiscal bankruptcy, and social chaos; conditions that undermine American democracy and are the foundation of his fundamental transformation of the country.
Obama would not be a problem, nor would he even be President, if we did not have a hopelessly corrupt political-media culture.
We are losing because the federal government has become an entity unto itself, no longer reflecting the consensus or the consent of the American people, operating outside of Constitutional restraints and, like Obama, promoting policies largely in conflict with the best interests of the country.
It is a government no longer designed to represent the people, but one solely dedicated to self-perpetuation. To politicians and journalists, truth has become a fungible commodity and, for the sake of political expediency, they have become generators for the mass production of misinformation.
Like the context of George Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four," we are beginning to live in a country in perpetual crisis, growing government surveillance, misinformation and manipulation by state-sanctioned media; all governed by a privileged and oppressive political elite led by a quasi-divine party leader who enjoy an intense cult of personality and considers personal liberty as a source of unhappiness.
In essence, our government is embracing the very political and social attributes we should be opposing.
For example, speaking about the Islamic State (ISIS), Major General Michael K. Nagata, commander of U.S. Special Operations forces in the Middle East said "We do not understand the movement, and until we do, we are not going to defeat it."
Or, more to the point, perhaps we no longer understand ourselves and the values and traditions we represent; since we now appear to have difficulty defining the nature of a threat that beheads innocent civilians, immolates prisoners on camera, makes school girls sex slaves, murders religious minorities and seeks to destroy the United States.
The Obama Administration consistently genuflects at the altar of political correctness and broadcasts the diplomatic desire not to offend, seemingly more concerned with protecting the sensitivities of Islamists than the lives of their victims. This administration's egotism is only exceeded by their inability to grasp the extent of their own ignorance.
In contrast, U.S. Marines did not struggle to understand or combat the fanaticism and brutality of the Imperial Japanese military during World War Two, dampening the enthusiasm for such savage behavior with overwhelming firepower.
In the apparent attempts to dismiss Islamic extremism, Obama frequently engages in equivocation and moral equivalency as he did recently at the National Prayer Breakfast comparing the actions of the Islamic State to those of the Christian crusaders a thousand years ago.
It is the systematic suppression of facts or the altering of history that advances and sustains the self-defeating policies of the Obama Administration. It is as if the government has enlisted in the ranks of our enemies and is bearing arms against us.
When incompetence is ruled out, only mendacity remains.

Please Read and be prepared ....................Pass it around.
Lets make it perfectly clear, there is a much bigger picture going on here and the American People won't wake-up until American and foreign Troops (U.N) are standing inside their home and they are being force out and into a Fema/DHS bus and if you own a firearm you most likely won't make it that far! Yes, we have millions that are awake to the Tyranny coming at "We the People" like a Bullet Train, but will that be enough and will they act in time before the Brown shirts on executing Obama's version of the "Night of the long knives"..!!! We have NO real Conservative leadership! We have a lot of talk and yes we have a number if dedicated Conservatives attempting to saving our Nation from the expanding Tyranny, but will the American People have a true leader step forward and bring "We the People" together as one Nation under GOD once again? Only time will tell, and time is running out! God help us, PLEASE!
Obama is banning .223 (5.56) Ammo...Read this Story...The continued Tyranny!
Outrageous. This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. The federal government is violating the constitution and must be stopped.
Check it out:
In a move clearly intended by the Obama Administration to suppress the acquisition, ownership and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unexpectedly announced today that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” The decision continues Obama’s use of his executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.
It isn’t even the third week of February, and the BATFE has already taken three major executive actions on gun control. First, it was a major change to what activities constitute regulated “manufacturing” of firearms. Next, BATFE reversed a less than year old position on firing a shouldered “pistol.” Now, BATFE has released a “Framework for Determining Whether Certain Projectiles are ‘Primari..., which would eliminate M855’s exemption to the armor piercing ammunition prohibition and make future exemptions nearly impossible.
By way of background, federal law imposed in 1986 prohibits the manufacture, importation, and sale by licensed manufacturers or importers, but not possession, of “a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely . . . from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium.” Because there are handguns capable of firing M855, it “may be used in a handgun.” It does not, however, have a core made of the metals listed in the law; rather, it has a traditional lead core with a steel tip, and therefore should never have been considered “armor piercing.” Nonetheless, BATFE previously declared M855 to be “armor piercing ammunition,” but granted it an exemption as a projectile “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes.”
Dr. Williams............I view your observations as in complete sync with COL Sellin's article title..........

NO!!!!! Castrate this disgusting piece of filth, no way does he get any say as to becoming a female.
What about our veterans being helped instead. HELL NO ; V.A. don`t give a F#$% about us .

M885 are difficult to find . 7.62x39 FMJ. will do the same damage and available .
Truly sick and tired of seeing alleged Patriots, politicians and MSM misrepresenting our Republic as a Democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic. A land of laws. The majority rules only to the point where law stops them from creating a Dictatorship. It protects the minority from a tyrannical minded majority.
Respectfully, in the future, refer to the Republic as it is. Everyone who utters that we are a Democracy seriously undermines our Republic because it creates a myth among our youth.
You're right... REPUBLIC... which should function with separation of powers, in which case when those branches comply with tyrannical behavior, it becomes two wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner! At this point in time, our Constitutional Republic has been suspended and no cajones in DC willing to stop it, except for a few you can count on one hand! There must be millions of We the People, not just a few, willing to continue the pressure on those who only see your pockets....... sad, indeed, but we must stand. Period. There's no alternative.
By the way, the enemy is Islam and there is only one. There are no moderates or radicals in Islam. There is one Allah, one Mohammed and only one Quran which all Muslims follow.
As long as we live under the fantasy, created by Taqiyya, the Allah sanctioned Muslim art of lying to advance Islam on unwitting societies and then squashing them like bugs, we are doomed to be dominated and destroyed by Islam and those who prop it up.
Then of course you have the fact that we not only aid, abet and arm the enemy abroad with taxpayer $$$, we then send our men and women in uniform to put their lives on the line against them. Worse than that, Military leadership does not stand for those who are on the ground laying their lives on the line, but blindly follows illegal orders in doing so.
Why does Military leadership cooperate? Because they, like the rest of US Government, have been completely infiltrated by the enemy and are led by the enemy in the White House.
