Below is a small excerpt from a speech I made at an event held by the Free Enterprise Society, July 6, 2002, in Sunnyvale, California. How well it describes America here and now:
"Ladies and gentlemen. These are indeed dangerous and serious times in which we live and not just from mad-dog terrorists from third world countries who hate US. We find ourselves in the same position as those who tried to save the Republic of Rome. I would like to open with a quote from the book, Dear and Glorious Physician, The Story of St. Luke, by one of the most prolific, magnificent writers of modern times, the late Taylor Caldwell. Published in 1959, this book spent 60 weeks on the NY Times bestseller list with more than 1,000,000 copies in print at the time. This is the character Diodorus speaking:
"In this very Senate, not many years ago, a senator was done to death because he spoke the truth. Not by knife or sword or spear was he murdered, and not by honest stones. No honorable hand struck him down, for there was no honorable hand here. He spoke of Rome. He cried out that Rome was no longer a republic, and that she had become a bloodthirsty empire, ruled not by men of wisdom and not by law, but by Caesar and his legions, and his generals and his rapacious freedmen and his palace politicians.
"The senator stood on this very podium and he wept for the Republic. He wept that emperors were not elected by the people, but by infamous legions and the idle and ravenous mobs who wished only to devour the fruits of the granaries and the treasures, and to be amused by charlatans and mountebanks and actors and singers and gladiators and pugilists -- at public expense."....
"For greed, that young senator cried to you, the mobs in this city supported evil Caesars, who lusted only for power, because those Caesars promised them loot from the public treasuries. Venal senators supported those Caesars, for profit and power.
"The lying Caesars spoke to the mobs and told them that our country could not defend itself against barbarians without allies, who must endlessly be bought and cajoled and flattered. And the traitorous Caesars plotted against their nation, mad with the lust to be gilded like gods by the whole world, and to be acclaimed by millions of thieves and beggars and wrestlers and freedmen and the cowardly, who never felt a pulse of patriotism in their vultures hearts!"
"Let me move your hearts!" he cried. "It is not yet too late!
"The course of empire leads only to death. Senators, look at me! Listen with your hearts, and not with your evil minds. Turn back to liberty, to frugality, to morality to peace, to Rome. Think no longer of those who appoint you, those whose bellies demand to be satisfied by the very blood of Rome, the very flesh of Rome, the hard-earned gold of Rome. Bow no longer to false Caesars, who, defying our very Constitution, issue mandates against the welfare of Rome and place themselves above the law which our fathers formulated, and for which they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
"Rome was conceived in good faith and in justice, and in the worship of God, and in the name of the manhood of man. Return our country to the rule of law and strike down the rule by men. Restore the treasuries. Withdraw our legions from foreign lands which hate us, and will destroy us at a moment's notice when it serves their interests. Repeal the taxes which crush those who work hard and industriously.
"Tell your multitudes that they must work or they shall starve. Drive from the Palatine itself the masses of toadies and self-seekers and thieves! Drive from the Palatine the puny freedmen who say 'Yes, yes!' to Caesar, and bow before him as though he were a god and not human flesh. Cleanse this chamber of rascals and mountebanks and demagogues who declaim in rounded phrases that the welfare of the people is close to their hearts, but who really mean that they will do the will of the mob in exchange for vile plaudits and power, and bribery!"....
"Romans! In the name of God, in the name of Cincinnatus, the Father of this Country, in the name of heroism and peace and manliness and freedom and justice, I beg of you to restore yourselves as the guardians of Rome, to cast out the usurper of the powers which rightfully belong to you, to impeach and to punish those who seized those powers in order to pervert the laws of our fathers! Let your Roman hearts speak and your Roman spirits cry out against the expedient and the corrupt, against the vainglorious and the traitors, against Caesars who anoint themselves as gods and hold court for the depraved and the ambitious and those who would dissipate the strength of our people, our Constitution, and our traditions! If you turn from your country, then she will die, and a thousand thousand legions shall not save her and a thousand bloody Caesars will vainly blow to the winds."
"Tiberius, the Caesar of the time, responded to this attack: "I am a soldier. I am surrounded by sycophants and liars, and in that Diodorus speaks truth. What is lavish and uncomprehending praise given out of self-seeking and fear? "What is flattery if lips that speak it only fawn, and in that fawning profit? The dull ear is servant to a duller tongue. As a I solider I prefer men of simple truth and without complexities who speak in honor and of patriotism. But where are men today in Rome?"....
"Let me tell you this," said Tiberius, quietly. "Venal Caesars, power-mad Caesars, never seize power, never destroy law and their country. Their power is forced on them by an evil and despicable people, a selfish and cowardly people. Where are the guardians of the people's liberty then? You are silent, you are slaves in spirit, you are thieves and cowards. But a people deserve their lawmakers."......
"Rome!" he said. "Do I recognize this Rome of polyglot slaves, of Scythians, Britons, Gauls, barbarians, Greeks, Assyrians, Egyptians, and the scum of a whole world? Where are the Romans? They have lost their identity. They have lost their tongues, their minds, their souls, their virility. What have I to do with such a Rome? I am not an honorable man! I am what my people have made me. I am their captive, not their Emperor. Here is no escaping the evil of a debased people."......
"I am here only to do the filthy will of a nation obstinately determined to commit suicide. If I break the law and the Constitution in their greedy behalf, they applaud me. If I have given up my hope of restoring the Treasury, they praise me for having their welfare at heart. Their welfare! Dogs and jackals!" End of quote from Caldwell's book.
"The rabble, the mob of "democracy" exist only to suck off the productive. These may sound like harsh words, but only a willfully blind person can't see the hand writing on the wall. History does repeat itself. Those who ignore it are doomed to repeat it. Unfortunately, you and I are watching history right now. We are watching America follow the same blueprint of destruction that caused the Roman Empire to wither into dust. America was once a great nation of people who used to be self reliant, determined, masters of their own destiny and strong warriors. We can be that way again and I believe we will.
"Too many coming from third world or communist/fascist countries care nothing for assimilating into the western culture. They are here to leech off the productive. However, every person sitting in this room and watching this video, has the opportunity to make and shape history by committing ourselves 100% to the challenges which face every freedom loving American. While most of the self-ordained slaves in this country will willfully continue to believe lies from the politicians who unlawfully rob the public treasury to support the rabble of the mob, there are millions of real Americans who are becoming informed and determined to stop the destruction of this Republic.
"Those of us who are committed to this cause should not worry ourselves overmuch about the sheep out in America. We will never reach all the people and we don't need to. We only need those men and women who have the stomach to stand up and be counted. Our numbers grow by the day.
"On September 14, 1994, David Rockefeller, speaking at the Business Council for the United Nothing [UN] said: "But this present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for long. Already there are powerful forces at work that threaten to destroy all of our hopes and efforts to erect an enduring structure of global interdependence."
"We the people who cherish freedom are closing that so-called window of opportunity and we intend to ratchet up the game in the immediate future. For many years I have said that most people don't become activists until they become victims. As more and more of these draconian junk laws passed by Congress and the 50 state legislatures affect more of the general population, we are beginning to see the sleeping tiger awaken. {Note: Think Obamacare]
"What kind of man would defy a King? What kind of American will defy tyranny? I say the same caliber as those who fought and gave us our freedom back in 1776. In the movie Braveheart, Robert the Bruce visits his father and says, "Father, the rebellion has begun." Later in the movie William Wallace bursts into a tap room full of nobles and says:
"My army has marched for more days than I can remember and we still have preparations to make so I'll make this plain: We require every soldier you can summon. Your personal escorts, even yourselves and we need them now."
A noble replies: "With such a force arrayed against us, it's time to discuss other options."
To which Wallace replies: "Other options? Do you wish at least to lead your men onto the field and barter a better deal with Longshanks before you tuck tail and run?"
A noble replies: "We cannot defeat this army."
Wallace replies: "We can. And we will. We won at Sterling and still you quibble. We won at York and you would not support us. If you no stand up with us now I say you are cowards." (End of excerpt from my speech.)
What Taylor Caldwell was describing is the same destruction of our Western culture from the massive human invasion since Ronnie Reagan opened the flood gates back in the 1986 with the "final and last" immigration reform bill. Since that bill was signed into law, wave after wave after wave of illegal aliens from dozens of countries have sneaked across our borders demanding we forfeit our way of life, our treasury and our culture to suit them. Millions of Mexicans who have zero loyalty to this country; they're here only to steal from you, me our children and grand children:
Immigration Amnesty Will Cost American Taxpayers $2 TRILLION. Our treasury is in debt just shy of $18 TRILLION dollars. Every penny being spent by the thieves in the Outlaw Congress, kissed and blessed by the fraud in the White House has to be borrowed. Meaning every penny for Barry Soetoro's (Obama) amnesty will be more borrowed debt heaped on we the people.
Historically speaking, the fall of the Roman Empire was based on a number of factors: Excessive taxation to satisfy the ravenous mobs and endless wars; decadence and the utter collapse of any morals. Sound familiar? However, one other thing brought down the Roman Empire: the rise of Christianity. Constantine The Great ended the persecution of Christians and the rest is history as they say. It has always been the imperative of the Communist International to destroy Christianity in America because communism can only grow and flourish in a God-less country.
Of course, we know what happened in the movie Braveheart. Wallace was betrayed for land, titles and filthy lucre. Not much different than today.
Today we are under assault by not only professional politicians put back into office election after election who have brought America to her knees but also useful fools in the "old" media and cash cow organizations like the Southern "Poverty" Law Center who refer to those of us fighting back against tyranny are labeled extremists and worse.
We are not children rebelling against our nation of laws, but rather we are The People engaged in a revolution to stop the destruction of our constitutional Republic. Steve Farrell, a noted writer with, so eloquently stated in a commentary: "The War for Independence was a just war, fought on the American side by those who upheld and defended established law, eternal principles and inalienable rights, as no men in the world's history before them had. And so, let this then be said and remembered forever: These, our Founders, were not rebels, but principled patriots and prophets who bravely battled for Liberty and Law!"
Over the past few weeks, the criminal impostor in the White House has attempted to defend his unlawful unilateral amnesty for 5 million liars, cheats and thieves, illegal aliens - a complete opposite position that liar took six years ago: Watch Obama In 2008 Make The Case Against Executive Amnesty Plan Of 2014
"In 2011, he told a Univision town hall that there “are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system.” To ignore those congressional mandates through executive order, Obama said, would “not conform with my appropriate role as president.”
“I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the [immigration] on my own,” he told the National Council of La Raza that year. “Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that's not how our system works. That's not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written.”
Why would Comrade Obama do it? Very simple. If he gets away with it, the Democratic/Communist Party USA gets millions of new voters. If it is defeated he can always say "I tried" and off to the golf course. Anyone who thinks that shallow, empty suit cares for one minute about Mexicans, South Americans, Vietnamese, Irish, Chinese or any other illegals, they don't understand how that Manchurian Candidate is programmed.
Barry Soetoro (Obama) had the gall to puke up this one: Only Native Americans can object to amnesty. Really? The Tohono O'odham Nation in Arizona fully supports and works with DHS to stop illegal aliens that have been so destructive to their reservations. I doubt very much if they want to reward those liars, cheats and thieves.
Soetoro/Obama has denied he's an emperor and has the power to simply ignore laws already on the books and the lawmaking power of the U.S. Congress. While denying he's done anything wrong and that he has the authority to screw we the people again, the Liar-in-Chief's temper finally belched up the truth:
Obama Puzzled by Pro-Amnesty Hecklers: 'I Just Took an Action to Change the Law!' "What you're not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said." He has no authority even if he were a legitimately elected president to change any laws and by damn the Republicans had better rub his nose in it while they cut off all funding and take him to court.
Businesses Will Receive $3,000 Per Employee For Hiring Illegal Immigrants: "As if President Obama’s executive amnesty wasn't already a slap in the face to out-of-work Americans, thanks to a loophole in Obamacare, it looks like businesses will actually have a financial incentive for hiring illegal immigrants."
Aren't the people of California sick and tired of their paychecks going to support liars, cheats and thieves? John and I left California in 2006 for two reasons: (1) state personal income tax and (2) supporting illegal aliens with those state personal income taxes. How about your high Obamacare premiums out in California? Now, do you want to pay for this, too? Executive Amnesty: 400,000 Illegal Immigrants Eligible for Free Health Services in California
HHS chief to illegals: Sign up for Obamacare! In violation of federal law:
Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) any US citizen that knowingly assists an illegal alien, provides them with employment, food, water or shelter has committed a felony. City, county or State officials that declare their jurisdictions to be "Open Cities, Counties or States are subject to arrest; as are law enforcement agencies who chose not to enforce this law. Police officers who ignore officials who violate Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) are committing a Section 274 federal felony. Furthermore, according to Federal Immigration and National Act of 1952, if you live in a city, county or State that refuses to enforce the law for whatever reason, the officials making those rules are financially liable for any crime committed within their jurisdiction by an illegal alien."
Sheriff Joe Arpaio out in Arizona has filed a lawsuit: Sheriff Joe Arpaio sues Obama to halt executive amnesty
This one is also important: Judge Greenlights Lawsuit Against Guest-Worker Program Expanded by Executive Amnesty: "Now that a federal judge has allowed a lawsuit against the student guest-worker program that President Barack Obama expanded via executive action to proceed, the federal government will have to prove that there is actually a shortage of high-tech American workers to keep the program intact.
"The program in question is the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program, which critics allege is just a way for high-tech companies to have a more permanent source of cheap foreign labor. According to ComputerWorld, "students still in school or recent graduates can use their student F-1 visas to take jobs through the OPT program" and "employers don't have to pay them a prevailing wage, or Medicare and Social Security taxes."...."As Breitbart News has extensively documented, numerous scholars and studies from across the political spectrum have determined that America has a surplus -- and not a shortage -- of high-tech workers."
Press release: there is no executive order to shield 5 million illegals and no executive order to grant tech visas, no executive order from Nov 20 or Nov 21 2014 at all: "On 11.20.2014 Barack Obama announced an executive order to grant 28 month reprieve from deportation for tech graduates and a bigger executive order to stop deportation of some 5 million illegals with anchor babies (children of illegal aliens born in the US). However, extensive research by Dr. Orly Taitz, ESQ showed that there is no such executive order in Federal register, on White or anywhere else for that matter. Some Obama supporters pointed to a memo, sent to DHS on 11.21.2014 by Obama, however the memo is absolutely empty, it contains nothing but general diatribe and gibberish, no specifics and just general recommendations, which, of course, fall far short from a specific executive order upon which these millions of illegals should be getting work permits."
While 49.9 MILLION Americans are on food stamps:
DRAMA: Obama weighs executive action to bring 800,000 foreign workers into USA
What is the GOP "leadership" in the Outlaw Congress going to do it stop Soetoro's latest lawlessness?
We Will Not Engage': Michele Bachmann Reveals GOP Plans to Ignore Executive Amnesty (Nov 22, 2014)
"Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) revealed on Saturday that Republican leadership, led by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Oh), has no intention of resisting President Obama’s executive amnesty that he ordered on Thursday. Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steven K. Bannon asked the congresswoman, who was a guest on Breitbart News Saturday Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, “Has there been any firm commitment from the leadership of the Republican party saying that this amnesty is not going to happen?” Bachmann replied with a question, “Do you want the truth? Okay, I’ll tell all of Breitbart listeners what happened this week. I was floored!”
"In the weekly meeting called “Republican Conference” in the House of Representatives, “we all knew that the big issue for the week was going to be the president announcing his amnesty,” she explained. Bachmann recounted that all of the leadership went to the microphone, including John Boehner.
“They acted as though the amnesty issue wasn't even an issue. They said that the President is going to do what he's going to do, and we are not going to get down in the mud with him. We are not going to engage, and what we are going to do is to talk about our positive solutions on jobs, the economy, education, and manufacturing,” Bachmann said. "She added that each congressman who spoke reiterated that not engaging Obama and staying positive was a “brilliant strategy.”
I told you so: GOP incumbents will betray America end of year (Feb. 20, 2014). Republicans look to loosen penalties on illegal immigrants (May 8, 2014) and they are about to do it to us unless we the people arise and demand they stop the fraud in the White House.
The Outlaw Congress returns to Washington, DC, today. We MUST keep massive pressure on by burning up telephone lines and their fax machines and keep doing it until we see they act: No amnesty and defund any and all programs relating to illegals staying in this country.
Less than ten days ago a Republican House rep claimed the U.S. House could not defund Comrade Obama's amnesty. Wrong. They can defund all of it: Confirmed: Congress Can Defund Obama's Amnesty: "Incoming-House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) is already laying the groundwork for Congress to defund Obama's amnesty sometime early next year. House Republicans would pass a long-term funding bill for most of the federal government this December, but would not include agencies that dealt with illegal immigration in that bill. They would then pass a separate bill that funded those agencies, but only on a short-term basis. This would allow Republicans to fight Obama's amnesty early next year when they have control of both the House and the Senate."
And, they damn well better. When you call or fax make it very clear: Republican mega power broker, Eric Cantor, was thrown out of the U.S. House during the primaries and thankfully is gone from the U.S. House. If voters in his district can do it, we can in two years all over this country. Tell your congress critter you gave them one more chance in the 2014 elections. You won't make the same mistake in 2016. Unless we the people blast the heat, we will see the GOP sell us out:
Possible 'ammunition' against Obama's amnesty riles some Republicans. "Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who requested the CRS report, hit the nail on the head in his commentary: "On its face, the suggestion that the White House can implement any unlawful and unconstitutional act so long as it pays for it with assessed fees is just plain wrong." The idea of Republicans, beset by the people who gave them an electoral wave just this month, throwing their hands up in the air and saying, Sorry, we can't do anything because...fees is indeed absurd."
The Republicans can file a lawsuit which I covered in this column based on the very real national security and health issues: Could lawsuit stop Obama's toxic plan for amnesty?
In his speech trying to justify breaking the law, Comrade Obama rolled out one of the big lies: You can't deport 11 million illegals. Gee, where have we heard that one before: Rand Paul: 'we aren't going to deport' 11 Million Illegal Immigrants. He can't even get their legal definition right. Illegals are illegal aliens not immigrants. And, yes we can and more. Deporting illegals has never been a priority for the last half dozen presidents and it still isn't with the fake one in the White House: JUDGE: 'The government has simply chosen not to enforce border security laws'
We don't need another destructive immigration "reform" bill like Ronnie Reagan signed. We need strict enforcement of the laws on the books along with locking down the border.
We can also force self-deporting of tens of millions of illegals by taking away the welfare teat which I covered thoroughly in an August column: A Bill: Stop all Public Welfare in Any Form for Illegal Aliens And, cutting off college tuition breaks for illegals who have no right to be on US soil. Long overdue here in Texas: Texas State Rep. Files Bill to End In-State Tuition for Illegals

Please send your letter or faxes to the district offices of Rep. Steve King [R-IA], Rep. Trey Gowdy [R-SC], Rep. Louis Gohmert [R-TX] and Senators Jeff Sessions [R -AL], Ted Cruz [R-TX], Mike Lee [R-UT]. 1. Defund Obamacare. 2. Sue to stop implementation based on national security and health issues. 3. The bill to stop all welfare in any form for illegals. Send a copy to your U.S. House critter and senator. The Outlaw Congress will soon go out of session for the rest of the year. They will be in their district offices for weeks and that's when your letter should be sitting there. Let those three senators shove Dirty Harry Reid's bill in his face come January.

The Reps can introduce Harry Reid's bill with the small section (substitution language) I have in the appendix section in my column above. Sessions, Cruz and Lee can introduce it in the Senate. Republicans now control both chambers come January. Such a bill would automatically get vetoed by the fraud in the White House, but the Senate does not have enough votes on a straight party line to override a veto. HOWEVER, 1/3 rd of the Senate is unlawfully up for reelection in two years and they are running scared. Just look at what Chuckie Schumer did: Chuck Schumer's Shrewd Break with ObamaCare. Political wags say he wants Dirty Harry Reid's job, but Schumer is a Class III senator meaning he will run again in 2016 and Obamacare as he fully well knows cleaned a number of senators out of office last month.
If enough Class III senators decide they're neck is on the chopping block in 2016 the Republicans just might be able to override the impostor president's veto for a bill to stop ALL forms of welfare for illegal aliens. It is the magnet that has kept them coming and it must stop. Only we can make it happen. We have to reach out to everyone we know and ask them to help us save our republic, our way of life, our country and the rule of law.
