From Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal Blog (Bold type mine):
Did You Love America?
Hat Tip: Nancy Jacques
Do you realize our country, the country many of us loved, and were willing to lay down our lives for, is no more? Don’t despair my fellow refugees and citizens of our beloved former America, but please do come to terms with the fact that our country was ill and dying for decades and it has now ceased to exist as we once knew it.
Nevertheless, this is not intended as an essay of gloom, but as a signpost denoting the reality of where we are, and an ensign for some, of the second American Revolution that has already begun without them. During its lifespan, the United States had forty and four men who called themselves President, but history likely will record the official number as forty-three, with George W. Bush as its last, and among the worst in the first dispensation of American independence.
John Adams loved the spirit of revolution inspired by Thomas Paine’s pamphlet, Common Sense, but he also bemoaned at length the “leveling spirit” of unbridled democracy. Adams correctly believed, there was no good government that was not a Republic. He felt there was not yet sufficient civic virtue in the colonies to support a Republic, and so he counseled against immediate abandonment of the accepted property-based franchise in determining a right to vote.
Adams was concerned that every man without a farthing would eventually, “demand an equal voice in all the acts of state.” Even though his lament included women and children voting, his point was clear considering the times, that only those who had the wherewithal to think and act rationally should be allowed to vote. Otherwise we would suffer a democratic legislature that would use “the will of the people” to enforce tyranny…which is precisely where we are today.
[…] And there it is…good government for which men will fight, and the odiousness of a government 1000 leagues off. How far off are the puppet masters pulling the strings of the usurper in the White House and our deaf representatives from both political parities? We have come full circle…we are again but a collection of colonies wanting representation, but not getting it, needing protection from a foreign invasion, but having the invasion aided by those who should, but do not protect our borders.
Our national seat of government is under siege, our country is in dire straits, and we are without a pulse of representation, but the nation’s lifeblood is in her people, and the nation’s heart beats within our own breasts where the Constitution is indelibly written…and there is where it lives on, not in Washington. The first dispensation of American independence took a deadly detour under FDR, and has just recently passed away from the affliction.
It is now up to us to insure that the invading government run by the tyranny of democratic mob rule does not stand, but that a Republic rededicated to the rule of law and limited by our Constitution, shall not perish from the earth. Restoring America and American liberty will require a complete rejection of the illegal presidency of the Obama administration, and a complete removal of both houses of Congress, but it can be done.

While Obama’s Department of Justice has illegally armed Mexican drug lords along the southern border in an attempt to provide cover for new gun control regulations preparatory to the disarming of Americans, his Department of Homeland Security is making it abundantly clear just who it is they consider to be their enemy:
DHS Video Depicts Terrorists as White Americans (Pajamas Media)
The DHS video goes out of its way to avoid showing any terrorist who fits the profile of the actual terrorists who have been waging war on us for more than a decade: Young men primarily from the Middle East. Instead, it tends to show them as middle aged white men. And it doesn’t really show them doing much of what actual terrorists do. It’s as if DHS is trying to make a completely useless anti-terrorism video.
Within the video, the narrator makes it clear that ethnicity, age and religion should not be a factor in judging whether an act is terrorism or not. While showing terrorists mostly as white men.
This video might slip past without raising much comment if the Napolitano DHS didn’t have a record of, on the one hand dismissing actual terrorism as “man caused disasters,” while on the other hand drafting a report that warned of potential terrorism from returning veterans and conservative groups. But Napolitano’s DHS does have that record.
Homeland Security Department: Returning war veterans are terrorist threat (Conservative Examiner)
On April 9, the thought police at Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security issued a report on the potential threat of “right-wing extremism”, which categorized military veterans, and persons who are pro-life, support state’s rights, or are against illegal immigration as potential terrorists.
[…] The socialists will like to point out that the DHS also produced a report about Left-wing extremists in January of this year. This report however, is about the use of cyber attacks by these groups. Nowhere does the report use the term “terrorist” or list supporters of the United Nations, promoters of open borders, animal rights proponents, and pro-abortion activists as potential recruits for violent extremists. In fact, the report goes out of its way to stress that left-wing extremists have a “…non-violent, ‘no harm’ doctrine…” [Ed.Note – Like Billy Ayers & the Weather Underground?? Or the numerous groups of eco-terrorists??]
Every socialist’s favorite terrorist is Timothy McVeigh; his horrific attack in Oklahoma City in 1994 was the only terrorist attack in the United States ever perpetrated by a “right-wing military veteran.” The Democrats like to associate conservatives and others on the political right with white supremacists and neo-Nazis. They are able to accomplish this because these groups use appeals to the values of the right, such as patriotism, family, the rule of law, etc. to promote their cause. This however does not make them part of the “right-wing” of American politics. White supremacists are nothing more than racists – bent on achieving a superior place in society based upon their race because they are utter failures in life. As for Nazis, while they try to gain support from the political right, it should be noted that the Nazi Party is properly known as the National Socialist Party – and offer nothing more than another flavor of socialist tyranny.
Unfortunately for Democrats, no matter how often they trot out Timothy McVeigh, the fact remains that political violence in the United States is the province of the left.
Make no mistake–we are in the midst of a coup d’etat organized by socialists inside and out of government. From Wikipedia:
also known as a coup, putsch, and overthrow—is the sudden, illegal deposition of a government, usually by a small group of the existing state establishment—typically the military—to replace the deposed government with another body; either civil or military. A coup d’état succeeds when the usurpers establish their legitimacy if the attacked government fails to thwart them, by allowing their (strategic, tactical, political) consolidation and then receiving the deposed government’s surrender; or the acquiescence of the populace and the non-participant military forces.
Typically, a coup d’état uses the extant government’s power to assume political control of the country. In Coup d’État: A Practical Handbook, military historian Edward Luttwak says, “A coup consists of the infiltration of a small, but critical, segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder”, thus, armed force (either military or paramilitary) is not a defining feature of a coup d’état.
To paraphrase a grand old American icon whose name and image is protected by the Smokey Bear Act of 1952 (16 U.S.C. 580 (p-2); 18 U.S.C. 711):
“Only YOU can prevent socialism.”
