I'm following my mother's example
This weekend was a rough one for me. Of course there was (and continues) my outrage at what was done to Herman Cain. Then Saturday evening around 11:30 PM the care facility my mother is at, called to tell me she was being taken to hospital with respiratory problems. They called back moments later to say she had stopped breathing as she was being placed into the ambulance, but that the paramedics were able to use a piece of equipment to force air into her lungs and that she was breathing okay when she left. About an hour later the hospital called indicating they had stabilized mom and were going to be moving her to their other hospital campus that had the medical intensive care unit suitable for her. Later and after two more calls from doctors and mom’s care facility, I received the call that mattered – mom was stabilized and resting peacefully.
Yesterday afternoon she was resting peacefully and they hoped to remove the breathing tube that had been inserted, either Monday or Tuesday, but definitely in less than the six or seven days typically anticipated. Obviously, that was good news. Of course there was the obligatory conversation with one doctor who immediately sought to advise me that my mother was 92 years old, suffering from dementia, that she was bipolar-schizophrenic, and was no longer ambulatory — ergo she would feel better if I just let her die. Suffice it to say that that conversation was brief in duration. I will at some point in the future be doing a rant on the numerous battles I’ve had with doctors, who thanks to Obamacare, have tried to convince me mom’s life wasn’t worth saving because she was of no use any longer. But that’s a topic for another day.
What I want to address is the fight in my mother. She has struggled her entire life, both to raise me and to support herself. In February of this year I almost lost her, but she continues with me today. It was the thoughts of her fighting against the odds and in the face of the brilliant, learned doctors (sarcasm intended) who thanks to Obamacare, knew exactly when it was best to pronounce a person no longer useful and therefore needful of being put to sleep as you would a dog or cat, that inspired my thinking.
Obamacare is robbing people of their parents, relatives, and friends, under the guise of care – when in reality it is for the expedience of dollars saved. It’s the similar with the sabotaging of Herman Cain’s presidential candidacy. Overlook for a moment whether he is guilty or innocent of that which he is accused. Ask yourself, if any of the accusations are as bad as the factual and documented acts committed by Bill Clinton? Is what Herman has been accused of as bad as what we know and have witnessed of Obama – those things he has spent millions of dollars to keep hidden not withstanding? Is what Herman has been accused of as bad as Michelle Obama calling white people names and railing against America as a racist nation, that can only be corrected by her husband and those like him (who just happen to be communists – Maoists to be exact – see Barack Obama and the Enemies Within by Trevor Loudon)? The answer is of course not, even if the accusations were true.
Ask yourself why a man like George Soros, who boasts of bringing down the economies of countries through the manipulation of their currencies, is regarded with such esteem in the media? Why does Soros receive media blessing and Herman is condemned?
The answers to these questions I have pointed out many times, is because any candidate who is truly of the people and who truly is not part of the “Inside the Beltway” mobocratic oligarchy is viewed as a threat to be completely destroyed.
What has been done to Herman is not new, it is the way the institutional mobocracy works, and Obama is part and parcel of that. There truly is a network that exists out of sight and resistant to change and I am increasingly persuaded it is the same group that is responsible for the election of one of the most rabid haters of America and our Constitution in the history of our Republic.
Barry Goldwater was a true conservative, who was maligned and smeared as a racist, and who was accused of planning to overthrow the government in conjunction with the John Birch Society. It was a damnable lie. Goldwater was however, a threat to Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society plans. Johnson’s Great Society was to build upon the Socialism of Roosevelt’s New Deal. And as the House Un-American Activities Committee was to later find, the booklet used to smear Goldwater and the accusations of racism were the work of a communist group based in Chicago.
Judge Robert Bork was a true Constitutionalist Conservative who was viscously maligned, because he dared believe in the Constitution and limited government. Which meant he also believed in State’s rights which means he believed in the will of the people. Ronald Reagan was maligned and smeared, because he was a true conservative and opposed to the rule and intrusion of government as was advocated by those aligned and committed to the turning of America into a hybrid of communism. Justice Clarence Thomas was similarly set upon, as was Sarah Palin, and now inevitably Herman Cain.
It may be hard to believe, but don’t take my word for it, do your own study. Look at those who have been most savagely set upon and see what they have in common. Trace where the attacks come from. Research Obama’s background and connections – see how all of this supports Nikita Khrushchev’s infamous promise to bury us without firing a shot. The adulation and affection Roosevelt showed Stalin, bordered on worship and his New Deal was nothing short of socialism. Fast forwarding through history we see that anyone who posed a serious and real threat to that structure was branded and crushed, with the exceptions of Ronald Reagan and Justice Thomas.
You’re probably wondering what all of this has to do with my mother. It’s like this – if at 92 years of age, my mother refuses to lay down and die for the expedience of a murderous, unfeeling, and uncaring system – I submit I/we cannot either. We must identify the enemies of our Republic and defy them. We must refuse to allow them to make our decisions for us, because the moment we do, we give them power of life and death over us and that is a power not provided for in the Constitution nor by the God of nature. If my 92 year old mother can fight, can I with good health and lucidity do less? Herman may be out of the race – but that doesn’t pave the wave for me to support them or who they tell me I should.
