Dennis Bartlett comments on the post “A Change of Tactics” by Danny Jeffrey which I cross posted at quite a few blog of my blog sites. In this case the comment was at my social network blog at America Conservative 2 Conservative (AC2C). I immensely enjoyed the comment.
It is at the grassroots level that America’s Left will fall. Thus I am grateful Dennis that you are making an impact on the local level. Indeed I am becoming more and more convinced that it is at the local level that our Constitutional Republic will survive under the vision of our Founding Fathers. Your comment is excellent Dennis!
If America comes to a civil war against the Left, grassroots organization will be the path to arm and train for the fight to stand up for the American Way of Life.

John, You can see how popular this blog is when everyone should be vested in it. These “patriot” based blogaspheres don’t seem to have any meaning when every day there are another dozen blogs. No one is focused and because of that nothing gets done. They are fanning the flames but it doesn’t accomplish a damn thing. It’s very easy to put out several small fires instead of a firestorm, well meaning but misdirected.
People don’t have a clue about the two parties, actually one masquerading as two. Both see the Tea Party as a rogue and out of control group of complainers.
The heads of these groups are in bed with the establishment. I see no other explanation for them with their power (past tense) not to have made and make a difference. These groups have lost the passion because now they seem to have no direction.
The interest in the upcoming election is very mixed knowing that whom ever is elected things will remain the same. It has been designed that way by the World Powers and not the American people yet very few know it or understand it. In the end it isn’t about America, it’s about World Dominance!
I’m dismayed and discouraged at the lack of knowledge these groups have and don’t attack the root cause. I have quit posting for the most part because of commitments to our County, a place where you can “change” things.
I’ve been involved in our County Assembly for the last 3 years and we grow stronger by the month. The people on these sites talk of the Founding Fathers the Bill of Rights, Constitution blah blah blah yet don’t understand the workings of it or ‘how’ this nation was formed.
The founders started by forming Assemblies from their Colonies. Today we start with County Assemblies, a “Lawful Body Politic” which was forgotten when FDR took over, literally!
How’s that working in DC thing working for you? It doesn’t and won’t yet as Einstein said about insanity just proves that people just don’t get it. PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A Republic starts at the bottom NOT at the top.
I say it as I see it and not here to make friends. This is my Country and I took an Oath to protect it and not the other way around. It is my view that eventually we will wind up fighting for it because we still expect “them” to take care of us and we will not win regardless of what many think.

Have heard of the Prague Spring? Unless or you are a history major in college or over 50 you probably have not heard of this grassroots uprising in old Czechoslovakia (Now divided into the Czech Republic and Slovakia).
In 1968 Alexander Dubcek became President of Czechoslovakia after the nation hand gone through a severe recession. Czechoslovakia was a Warsaw Pact nation of the Stalinist-Communist Soviet Empire. Those were still Cold War days of the Soviet Union and Communist East European satellite nations vs. the American-NATO-European alliance.
The previous Czechoslovakian President was deposed by the Communist Party and was replaced by Dubcek. Dubcek was no capitalist however he was sick of Stalinist style Soviet repression. Dubcek thus instituted a freedom of conscience and press in Czechoslovakia. Dubcek’s difficulty was the Soviet Empire was governed by an old fashioned Stalinist leader. On August 20, 1968 the Soviet Union with a number of other Soviet bloc nations invaded Czechoslovakia ending a micro-moment of freedom and the deposing of Dubcek, a number of Dubcek-supporting members of the Communist Party and a number of citizens that were prominent and supported Dubcek’s Prague Spring. It was the end of a freedom revolution and a return to despotism for Czechoslovakians.
I don’t know what the Muslim press is calling the grassroots uprisings across North Africa and the Muslim Middle East, but the Western Press is calling these uprisings the “Arab Spring.” Will this Arab Spring bring democratic reforms across Muslim dominated lands? Will the Arab Spring end in failure for grassroots interests with a return to some kind of Islamic despotism? Will the Arab Spring exchange megalomaniac dictators for Islamist theo-political repression instituting all of the harshness of Sharia Law as espoused by Mohammed and the four following “Rightly Guided” Caliphs?
These are the questions the Obama Administration must ask with the American entanglement in Libya. I still believe it is an excellent idea to not only rid Libya of Moammar Qaddafi but also to rid the world of the mad dog. However, with the continuing evidence beginning to pile up that the Libyan rebels are Islamist and/or al Qaeda supporters the Obama Administration needs to find the correct answers for the difficult questions.

Bahrain is a near microscopic dot on the map that otherwise might be thought of as Saudi territory. Bahrain is a micro-Sheikdom with oil wealth and the port of the U.S. Navy 5th Fleet.
Little tiny Bahrain has been besieged by Shi’ites in their tiny island nation who have revolted over the absolute monarchy (officially constitutional but you know…) that controls the government and which is a Sunni royal family. The unrest in Bahrain is not new but the recent intensity is undoubtedly a manifestation of Muslim unrest that began in Tunisia and spread across the Maghreb and the Muslim Middle East to change the old regimes to a more Ummah (Islamic Community) oriented government for the people.
The difference in the unrest in Bahrain than in other grassroots Islamic revolts is that it has more to do with the majority Shi’ite have-nots unhappy with their existence as opposed to the privileged Sunni minority haves that are well off. Since this is a Shia vs. Sunni thing in Bahrain, who do you think might possibly use the unrest as a platform to flex muscles against its Sunni competitor? Yep, that would be Iran. This is especially the case since Arab Peninsula nations are preparing to send military assistance to tiny Bahrain in the form of troops with the big dog being Saudi Arabia.

Hosni Mubarak was a dictator that ruled and kept his power with an iron fist. This did not endear him to many Egyptian citizens. On the other hand Mubarak was a staunch ally of America and was not hostile to Israel as were the two previous Egyptian Presidents before him.
There is the rub for Americans who take the American way of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for granted. The natural instinct for Americans who watched tens (perhaps hundreds) of thousands of Egyptians take to the streets to protest Mubarak’s Presidency in a remarkably peaceful manner, especially for Muslim culture, elicited sympathy for Egyptians. After all Egyptians should also have access to the Liberty that America has had since the end of the American Revolutionary War, right?
But what inspired the Egyptian people to flow into the streets to protest one of the staunchest allies of America in the Muslim Middle East? Was it merely the rise of grassroots revolution inspired by the action of Tunisian citizens? Was it the Muslim Brotherhood who took advantage of the sentiment of Tunisian grassroots revolution who then fomented Egyptians to go to the streets? One looming question is beginning to be asked: Was the Obama Administration intimately involved in affairs of State and clandestine operatives in fomenting Egyptians to the streets to remove American ally Mubarak because rule offended the utopian thoughts of President Barack Hussein Obama?
As you read the Ari Bussel article you will notice the excoriation of Obama and a moment of respect for Obama and a hint to America’s past which saw another Dem Party Left Wing ideologue in President Carter shooting down American ally the Iranian Shah Reza Pahlavi.
