Highlights of the Carolina Stompers Membership Meeting

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 2, 2008

Here are the highlights from the Carolina Stompers Meeting held last Saturday, where they informed about 50 people about the progress of their investigation of the corruption of public officials in Buncombe and Madison Counties, as well as state officials.
The day after the meeting, agents from one of the targeted agencies, Alcohol Law Enforcement, raided a card game on the property of Chad Nesbitt’s grandfather.

Chad should be releasing more videos soon, including those he showed us last Saturday. I will hold off releasing my full coverage until that time.

The Constitution Party

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 6, 2008

Preamble

The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.

This great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.

The Constitution of the United States provides that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” The Constitution Party supports the original intent of this language. Therefore, the Constitution Party calls on all those who love liberty and value their inherent rights to join with us in the pursuit of these goals and in the restoration of these founding principles.

The U.S. Constitution established a Republic rooted in Biblical law, administered by representatives who are constitutionally elected by the citizens. In such a Republic all Life, Liberty and Property are protected because law rules.

* That each individual is endowed by his Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are the rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness;

* That the freedom to own, use, exchange, control, protect, and freely dispose of property is a natural, necessary and inseparable extension of the individual’s unalienable rights;

* That the legitimate function of government is to secure these rights through the preservation of domestic tranquility, the maintenance of a strong national defense, and the promotion of equal justice for all;
* That history makes clear that left unchecked, it is the nature of government to usurp the liberty of its citizens and eventually become a major violator of the people’s rights; and
* That, therefore, it is essential to bind government with the chains of the Constitution and carefully divide and jealously limit government powers to those assigned by the consent of the governed.

I believe that Conservatives should consider their options at this point due to betrayal within the National GOP. Perhaps Republicans should consider calling their county, state, and national party Headquarters, and ask if conservatives are still welcome in the party.

We either stay and fight, or find another home, and begin the generation-long task of building another national party to, I hope, replace the Republican Party.

(LONG WAR JOURNAL)The State of Jihad: for 2007

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 31, 2007

The US and her allies in Europe, the Middle East, and beyond have witnessed both stunning successes and dramatic setbacks in the Long War during 2007. Pakistan has continued its slide towards a failed state, with the government having relinquished control over additional territory to the Taliban and, thus, al Qaeda. Suicide bombings and attacks on all segments of the state plagued Pakistan as the Taliban and al Qaeda cemented their new safe havens. Iraq, which seemed all but lost at the end of 2006 as the US appeared to lose the all-important political will, has turned around with the change in counterinsurgency plan and the surge of troops US and Iraqi troops. Al Qaeda and the Iranian-backed Shia terrorists are losing ground and local support in Iraq. Afghanistan has seen its worst year of violence since the Taliban was defeated in late 2001; suicide bombings and IED attacks skyrocketed due to the problems in Pakistan.

The war also continues in dozens of lesser theaters. India suffered numerous blows from Pakistani-based terrorists. Al Qaeda has revitalized itself in Algeria and greater northern Africa. A brutal insurgency is being waged in Somalia after the Islamic Courts was ousted at the end of 2006. The Philippines saw some progress against Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah in the southern provinces. Thailand’s Islamist insurgency ballooned in 2007. Al Qaeda is attempting to revive the jihad in Chechnya and the greater Caucasus. Saudi Arabia and Yemen continue to breed the next generation of al Qaeda fighters.

Scott Osbourne has a helpful list of 7 Key Principles of this war in theological and ideological contexts.

Commentary

This Fourth World War has had it’s ups and downs in the past year, and, although I believe we are winning, the outcome is still in doubt.

We are waging a twin war on the homefront as the anti-American war protesters will be gearing up to oppose our foreign policies, and give aid and comfort to the enemy with their actions. They will be opposed at every turn by brave Americans who have had enough, and by other Americans who will be moving into offensive 5GW actions designed to discredit and confuse the enemies of America. Stay Tuned.

Era of Open Government is Here

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 13, 2007

Have you ever wanted to find more information on government spending? Have you ever wondered where federal contracting dollars and grant awards go? Or perhaps you would just like to know, as a citizen, what the government is really doing with your money. The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (Transparency Act) requires a single searchable website, accessible by the public for free that includes for each Federal award:

1. The name of the entity receiving the award;
2. The amount of the award;
3. Information on the award including transaction type, funding agency, etc;
4. The location of the entity receiving the award;
5. A unique identifier of the entity receiving the award.

Source: USA Spending

I have been exploring the website this morning, and almost forgot to post about it until now, and will be posting on some of the stuff I am finding.

Congress Critters will now be much more accountable to the citizenry, and I hope this will help cut down on some of the corruption.

West Carolina Report 3.1

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 7, 2007


I have upgraded West Carolina Report with the addition of story snippets, and I am testing the use of Google Reader’s “Share” feature that allows users to publish things they find interesting to a public page, and I have embedded a widget that will allow readers access to that page.

The big improvement, for me, is that I don’t have to copy and paste so many times to bring attention to news stories or blog entries as I find them…I just click the share button to include it on the public page.

I am also putting the final touches on the code that will allow independent reporters to contribute content to West Carolina Report without having to go through me. I am looking for local or state oriented features, but will consider material for the National and World War IV pages, or other pages that will be established in the future.

And I have secured the means to go live at any time with videocasting, and may be simulcasting several shows on that website in the near future of a local and regional flavor.

The future for conservative and classical libertarians is looking very bright for western North Carolina, and the WCR News Network will be broadcasting the Revolution Live!

I am very excited, and have been working toward this moment for two and a half years, and can see everything coming together in the next twelve months.

MSNBC Lies About Papal Homily, And More You Won’t See on The TV News

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 25, 2007

This is posted especially for those opposed to the Global War on Terror, to show you that you have been lied to about this war by the Media since Day One!

The Pope’s words according to MSNBC:

Pope Benedict, elevating 23 prelates from around the world to the elite rank of cardinal, made a pressing appeal on Saturday for an end to the war in Iraq and decried the plight of the country’s Christian minority…

Speaking of Delly during the ceremony in St Peter’s Basilica, Benedict said Christians in Iraq were “feeling with their own flesh the dramatic consequences of an enduring conflict … “

Let us together reaffirm the solidarity of the whole Church with the Christians of that beloved land and invoke from the merciful God the coming of longed-for reconciliation and peace for all the peoples involved (in the conflict),” he said in his homily.

Wearing gold embroidered vestments, the Pope said in his sermon that he had chosen the Iraqi patriarch as a cardinal to express his spiritual closeness to suffering Iraqis.

Now, from the Pope’s Website:

…To the beloveds Christian communities that find themselves in Iraq? These our brothers and sisters in the faith experience in the flesh the dramatic consequences of a persistent conflict and live in present fragile conditions and a delicate political situation. I have called to enter in the College of the Cardinals the Patriarch of the Chaldea Church of Iraq. I have meant to express in some concrete way my spiritual vicinity and my affection for those populations.

We want entirety, beloveds and Siblings, to reaffirm the solidarity of the entire Church towards the Christians of her mistress earth and to invite to invocate from merciful God, for all the involved people, the advent of reconciliation and of peace.

Have the Media No Shame? Of course not, they live to twist the news to fit their template so that it helps the Democrats.
HOw many scandals do you need? Dan Rather lying and using forged documents to cause a sitting President to lose an election? If it were up to the Legacy Media, that is EXACTLY what would have happened.
Wake up, sheep! You are being lied to, and herded to your doom by the left…don’t say you weren’t warned!

And,I seem to remember the Democrats (and nearly everyone else against the war) insisting that Iraq was in a Civil War, and the Legacy Media would promptly report that, and ignore any counter evidence…now comes this:

Almost since the beginning of the Sunni insurgency in Iraq in late 2003, there has been an ongoing public debate about the significance and origins of foreign-born jihadists who have traveled to Iraq intent upon joining Al-Qaida and killing Americans and Muslim “apostates”. Despite a veritable avalanche of evidence suggesting that these foreign fighters have had a disproportionate role in destabilizing Iraq and that a large cross-section (if not outright majority) of these fighters are coming from Saudi Arabia, a host of journalists and experts have wasted no effort in downplaying their impact. Regular readers of the Counterterrorism Blog will recall Jonathan Finer’s article in the Washington Post, similar pieces published in the Christian Science Monitor, and a litany of commentary from Tony Cordesman (based almost entirely upon facts spoon-fed to him by Saudi intelligence and paid Saudi lobbyists).

Yet, now, it seems that the evidence of the involvement of Saudi Al-Qaida recruits in the Iraqi insurgency has become so plainly obvious that even the New York Times has taken note. In an article published this week, Times writer Richard Oppel cites statistics derived from a “trove of documents and computers discovered in September, when American forces raided a tent camp in the desert near Sinjar, close to the Syrian border”, featuring a “collection of biographical sketches that listed hometowns and other details for more than 700 fighters brought into Iraq since August 2006.” According to the Times article, at least 305 of those biographies–or 41%–were of fighters from Saudi Arabia: “Among the Saudi fighters described in the materials, 45 had come from Riyadh, 38 from Mecca, 20 from Buraidah and the surrounding area, 15 from Jawf and Sakakah, 13 from Jidda, and 12 from Medina.” Compare this to Tony Cordesman’s suggestion in his 2005 report on the Iraqi insurgency that Saudi nationals represent only 12% of the total number of foreign fighters. Quite obviously, Cordesman’s estimate was way, way too low.

Congress’s New Role: Undermining U.S. Foreign Policy

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 18, 2007

By Victor Davis Hanson

The president establishes American foreign policy and is commander in chief. At least that’s what the Constitution states. Then Congress oversees the president’s policies by either granting or withholding money to carry them out – in addition to approving treaties and authorizing war.

Apparently, the founding fathers were worried about dozens of renegade congressional leaders and committees speaking on behalf of the United States and opportunistically freelancing with foreign leaders.

In our past, self-appointed moralists – from Charles Lindbergh and Joe Kennedy to Jimmy Carter and Jesse Jackson – have, from time to time, tried to engage in diplomacy directly contrary to the president’s.

But usually Americans agree to let one elected president and his secretary of state speak for the United States abroad. Then if they’re displeased with the results, they can show it at the ballot box every two years in national or midterm elections.

But recently hundreds in Congress have decided that they’re better suited to handle international affairs than the State Department.

The U.S. Senate late last month passed a resolution urging the de facto breakup of wartime Iraq into federal enclaves along sectarian lines – even though this is not the official policy of the Bush administration, much less the wish of a sovereign elected government in Baghdad.

That Senate vote only makes it tougher for 160,000 American soldiers to stabilize a unitary Iraq. And Iraqis I spoke with during my recent trip to Iraq are confused over why the U.S. Congress would preach to them how to split apart their own country.

Commentary

If the Democrats keep this up, they’ll provide fuel for a tremendous awakening of the silent majority. I am already seeing signs of stirrings in western North Carolina as more conservatives begin to ask how they can become involved. I always tell them to start locally, because this cleansing (of the government, and it’s attendant bureaucracies) will be from the bottom up. If this is going on nationwide, it would explain the new sense of desparation from the lefties.

Media and Congressional Assistance to the Jihad

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 14, 2007

The News Media, and the Left (But I Repeat Myself !), have been seeking ways to undermine the war effort against the jihadis since it began. They are continuing their tradition to assist the enemy just like during the Third World War (The Cold War) by many means. They have denied it was a war, they have blamed us, they have attempted to deny funding for the war, they have smeared our troops, and any who support them and their mission.

I have long asserted that Haditha was a hoax, that our soldiers acted bravely. The Media, and Ally in the Jihad Against the West, Congressman Jack Murtha, have told bald-faced lies about our fine soldiers. I have repeatedly called Jihadi Murtha’s Office, and asked when he was going to apologize for taking part in operations against our government. I usually get hung up on within a minute or so.

Now, a movie is going to be released from an Artsy Lefty about Haditha:

No surprise who the villain will be: Marines. He told Time Out magazine, “Their (Marines’) standard operating procedure rules are so f—ing hard-core. If, for example, a house is described as ‘hostile,’ then you just kill everyone in the house. It doesn’t matter if it contains 2-year-olds or the elderly.”

Since there’s an investigation under way, Broomfield won’t use real names. He says he wants to be fair to the Marines; I say he doesn’t want to get sued. This true regisseur (regisseur is what you call a director who makes movies that only students attending film school will voluntarily sit through) views a greater cause from his humble masterpiece. A bigger picture, if you will.

“I think there have been lots of Hadithas, and there are lots of Hadithas every year.”

The screen goes black, violins play and the credits roll.

But this is where reality and entertainment part ways because there are so many details that would ruin the good vs. evil plot. Broomfield probably won’t tell you the previously mentioned “young journalism student” was actually a 46-year-old founder of a new “human rights group” that only had one other member. Or that the video of the “massacre” was handed over to the press four months after it was shot.

A high-drama film may not want to mention that the Time Out magazine writer, Tim McGirk, refused to testify during the Marines’ hearing, possibly because his testimony under oath could make him and his publication liable for legal action. Former Marine and Rep. John Murtha himself will have to answer directly to a judge for his public comments.

“They actually went into the houses and killed women and children,” the Pennsylvania congressman said. Murtha has yet to acknowledge that the majority of Marines have already been cleared of any wrongdoing.

Just to show how committed the director is to accuracy, Broomfield will shoot “The Battle for Haditha” in neighboring Jordan.

“We didn’t go to Haditha itself; it was too dangerous,” he explained.

Of course, the danger will not come from the Marines Broomfield will smear in his film, but more likely from the type of people who got shot during the alleged “massacre,” or as Broomfield calls them, the heroes of the story.

“I’m sure it happens on a lesser scale every single day,” Broomfield told a journalist. The British director may already see himself clutching an Oscar for best foreign film, even if only a handful of theaters show his work.

Surprisingly, the people of Haditha remember a different massacre than the man who has never actually visited the city. In 2005, terrorists assaulted a police station, led 20 police officers to a soccer field, placed them on their knees and shot each one in the back of the head.

Witnesses said the executioners removed the heads from the bodies and then kicked them around like soccer balls. The public killing of the officers were just the tip of the iceberg. Terrorists had previously killed the mayor, his son, a police chief and three members of his family. The script for this Haditha massacre will never be written, because for the artists who have a point to prove about truth and justice, fantasy is a lot more entertaining.

That is just one of the many examples of a Media ready, willing, and able to assist the jihadis in their Jihad Against the West. CNN will blur photos of a cartoon for fear of provoking typical Muslim rage, and their machinations to expose the hiding place of an artist to their ally jihadis:

The blurred-out drawing shown above is the one that first appeared in print in Sweden, in the newspaper Nerikes Allehanda. You can see the full image at right in situ, which we have here thanks to the quick thinking of Carpenter, who scanned it and sent it to us on August 22nd, the day it hit the newsstands.

But this wasn’t the first Modoggie to appear; there were plenty before the one printed by Nerikes Allehanda. This one was #6 of the drawings I collected, and I didn’t borrow all of them. As I predicted, the trouble didn’t start until a Modoggie found its way into the MSM. Ever since then that particular one, #6, has continued to be the focus of Islamic outrage and the attention of the Western media.

I can’t improve on the conclusion that Allahpundit draws from this whole affair:

See what’s going on here? After the disgraceful western media blackout of the Danish cartoons, CNN obviously felt it had to make some gesture towards showing the viewers the offending work. But not only didn’t they have the balls to show the offending part, they were sufficiently worried about being accused of, ahem, “Islamophobia” for the part that they did show that they went ahead and put up the drawing of Christ — which has nothing to do with the threat to Vilks — just to prove that they’re equal opportunity offenders.

So they blur out a Rondellhund drawing, but they prominently display the name of the town that Lars Vilks is “hiding” in. Three cheers for journalistic integrity!

There are so many examples in the blogosphere of MAJ, or Media Assistance to the Jihad, that I have included an entire section in today’s West Carolina Report along with my usual twin focus on Foreign Jihad and Domestic Jihad. I usually include American Media efforts in the jihad in the Domestic Jihad category, and Foreign Media (BBC. al Jazeera, al-Reuters) in the Foreign Jihad Category.

I suspect I will soon have to include a category enititled Congressional Assistance to the Jihad, or for a shorter ( and more appropriate) title, The Mujahadeen of Murtha. I could use a photo of a hijab-wearing Pelosi sandwiched between the Islamic Rage Boy and an Enraged Murtha…all shouting “Allahu-Ackbar!”

Here is a small portion of my links at West Carolina Report regarding the ongoing efforts of our media to assist the jihadis:

Hugh Hewitt: General Sanchez On The American Media’s Coverage Of The War

What Sanchez Really Said

Never forget that the Left (including the Media) wants us to lose this war very badly, and will tell any lie, over report set backs, or ignore good news in order to get that accomplished. Part of their strategy includes attacking those with big enough megaphones (Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, LGF, David Horowitz, etc) that are working to expose their lies.

This is part of the reason I have re-arranged my life so that I go to bed around 8pn and wake up between 2am and 3am nearly every morning: to seek out and report on news that the Media wish to suppress, to report on what they are twisting, to find links to others who are doing a far better job at it than I ever could. I post those links as headlines Drudge-style at West Carolina Report, and expand on some here at Thunder Pig when appropriate. I subscribe to over a thousand blogs, and nearly 400 news sources in various online readers in an effort to do an end-run around my molasses-speed dial-up, and in an attempt to stand at the firehose of data…trying to spoon out relevant data ignored or discarded by the Lefty Media-types.

/rant

It is time we recognize, name, and expose the enemy in our midst. Our very survival depends upon it, and I will be unveiling anew tool this winter that will be very useful to those who love Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

Stay Tuned!
