A Time For Choosing

"History is usually interesting, but always relevant."- American Angle

Ronald Reagan was (is) a true leader, one that understood that it must always be country first. Friends, Patriotism is not fleeting it is not a convenience that only evokes pride when someone's husband is voted for.

Patriotism is not a mere symbol to be removed from ones chest because you don't like the war. True Patriotism is a constant never wavering support of your nation, an understanding that her symbols are never to be protested, but protected at all costs.

Our Republic is in dire need for all of her Patriots to stand up. Remember folks, titles do not make the Patriot; duty does.

You & I (not the government) with the knowledge that dissent, discourse, and the honor of duty are hallmarks of Freedom and the maintenance of the same can & will provide true hope & change.

It is up to us to ensure that America remains the “shining city upon a hill.”

Adviser to Carter and Obama Wants the US to Shoot Down Israeli Jets

By Tony Vega

Zbigniew Brzezinski, the national security adviser (NSA) for former President Jimmy Carter and top foreign policy adviser during the presidential campaign for Senator Obama, calls for the current administration to shoot down Israeli jets in defense of Iran.

Brzezinski sat down for an interview with Gerald Posner of the Daily Beast. The conversation eventually got around to the possibility of a preemptive strike on Iran by Israel.

In light of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's consistent and persistent calls of "Death to Israel" and the revelation that Iran has a secret nuclear facility (which wasn’t so secret) the interview questions are valid.

Keeping in mind that an Israeli attack on Iran would require Israeli jets to fly over coalition airspace in Iraq, read the following excerpt of the interview:

DB: How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?
Brzezinski: We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?

: What if they fly over anyway?
Brzezinski: Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.

The Liberty was a U.S. ship in international waters in the Middle East during the Six-Day War in 1967 that was hit by Israeli gunfire. The incident remains a controversial one and the US and Israel both maintain it was a tragic accident.

For Brzezinski to advise the US to confront Israel in a manner that would prompt the shooting upon an ally is highly irresponsible to say the least, but may provide a glimpse into the dark heart of Carter's former NSA.

Brzezinski advised Carter on confrontations in Iran, Afghanistan and the Middle East. How did that work out for us? Brzezinski's current advice to shoot down Israeli jets will not be followed; it will only serve as additional evidence of his disdain for Israel. There, however, remains a more important question.

We are rich in history and as such, we have the benefit of hindsight. History is usually interesting but always relevant. So, why on this spontaneously combusted green earth would Barack Obama seek the advice of Zbigniew Brzezinski? That is the bigger question.

It should be clear by now that Barack Obama has a penchant for the fringe and radical element of society, which includes domestic terrorists and anti-Zionists. Unfortunately, the ugliness of that truth prompts Americans to do the ostrich. Burying ones head in the sand is not a luxury watchdogs and/or patriots can afford.

It can no longer be considered a coincidence that our 44th president has ties with anti-Americans and other radicals. It can no longer be considered a coincidence that Obama's staff or lapse in judgment prompted the recruitment of those that run counter to American ideals.

Shamefully, there are many currently serving in Obama's administration that should never be a whispers distance to our president. One: for safety reasons and Two: heaven forbid these people were in a position to advise our commander in chief; sadly, they are.

This article may serve to highlight the reckless desires of Zbigniew Brzezinski, but more importantly it highlights the judgment of our current president.

You can listen to Obama's description of Zbigniew Brzezinski here, take away quote from that video is, "I've learned an immense amount from Dr. Brzezinski."

I have learned an awful amount from Dr. Brzezinski as well. Enough to know I wouldn't ask him directions to the grocery store, forget about advice on foreign policy matters.

Look for this administration to distance themselves from Brzezinski, if not outright throw him under the bus. In closing, I will leave you with this question: Isn't that bus (or at least under it) getting pretty crowded?

Nancy Pelosi's Emotional Hypocrisy

Nancy Pelosi, congressional photo_wiki

By Tony Vega

Is there ugly rhetoric in the current debate surrounding healthcare? You betcha! And it should not be condoned. I believe it is immature to justify bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior. This content is not going to do that, what it will do is illustrate the hypocrisy of the left, namely Nancy Pelosi.

Madam Speaker had this to say, "I think we have to take responsibility for our action and words." You can view the emotional address here. Pelosi continued by referring to the "late '70s in San Francisco. This kind of rhetoric was very created a climate in which violence took place." A reference to the murders of Harvey Milk, a gay rights activist.

Her statement in of itself is a sound one. Savvy onlookers, however, know what is under that plastic mask. Pelosi's cautionary tale along with recent cries of racism is the new bat wielded by the left. It serves to scare the opposition into silence. Listen people, opposing the POTUS is not a hate crime.

In all fairness, fancy Nancy did not call out any Republicans during her emotional performance. Later that same day the House Speaker did send out a fundraising letter, in which she could no longer contain herself.

In her letter, Pelosi accuses the opponents of "health-insurance reform" (note the name change) of cynical name calling and waging "false attacks on President Obama."

"I think we have to take responsibility for our actions and words." Oh, really Madam Speaker? Are you and yours ready to take responsibility of and for the following:

Uttered during the summer of '09 about the American people opposing Obama's plan(s):

1. "Un-American"-Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
2. "Evil-mongers"-Harry Reid (D-NV)
3. "Racist"- Jimmy Carter (D- former POTUS)
4. "Angry mob of extremists"- Democratic National Committee (DNC)
5. "Birthers and tea baggers"- Dick Durbin (D-IL)
6. "Very rabid people"- Steny Hoyer (D-MD)
7. "Political terrorists"- Baron Hill (D-IN)
8. "Ku Klux Klan"- John Dingell (D-MI)
9. "Brown Shirts [Nazis]"- Brian Baird (D-WA)
10. "Brain dead [lodged against opposing Democrats]"- Pete Stark (D-CA)

For the sake of brevity, I'll stop this list consisting of, uh, to borrow Pelosi's words, "Rhetoric that is frightening." What is egregious about this list of ten insults are that it is uttered by our elected officials and hurled at the American people.

Any forthcoming apology from Pelosi and her team's glaring lack of decorum? Didn't think so.

In conclusion, it is only fitting to close with Nancy's own words; yeah I know I said I'll stop at ten. Sue me, or rather call out, "You Lie."

Referring to the President of the United States: "Total failure"- Nancy Pelosi, 2008

Of course, she was referring to George Bush. Feel better now?

Madam Speaker did not mind protesters when they shared her ideology:

"So I think all of you who have spoken out for your courage, your point of view, all of it, your advocacy is very American and very important. I am a fan of disrupters. Let's not question each other's Patriotism when we have this very honest debate that this country expects and deserves" - Nancy Pelosi, January 17, 2006. [emphases my own]

See her in all her glory, here.

What does the Speaker of the House have to say about YOU if you have the audacity to oppose Obamacare? In a word, "Un-American." [August 2009. See #1]


Hello, mainstream media?? Is this mike on??

Hooker and Pimp Exposes ACORN in Brooklyn, NY

James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, NY Post

By Tony Vega

Faux hooker and pimp, Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe, exposed ACORN again. The dirty deed this time occurred in the city that never sleeps; Brooklyn, NY.

I have worked the mean streets of NYC for over 20-years, including a stint in vice (it wasn't called vice then, it was known as the public morals division). My travels have taken me to that seedy side of Nevins Street where ACORN (house of ill repute?) sits. Let me tell ya, prostitutes of Giles quality does not exist.

The illustrious former governor of NY, Elliot Spitzer, paid over five grand for time spent with a comely "escort" that was not of Giles caliber. It is obvious that pure greed is the root of the ACORN tree. Greed and political expediency to that end trumps even their own street savvy.

Is your ideology trumping your good sense? Is the close affiliation to Barack Obama preventing you from seeing why this community organization should not be the recipient of public funds? When is enough, enough?

James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles are emerging as American heroes. They are doing what the "true" investigative journalists are not. They are exposing a corrupt organization that is ripping us off to the tune of millions and potentially billions of dollars.

The MSM does not have the stomach to go after Barack Obama's pet organization, which is another example of ideology trumping ethical standards. If this were a GOP front, the MSM would be all over this; like spit(zer) on a hooker's pillowcase.

ACORN like Van Jones, is it me or does Barack Obama have some cool friends, played the victim role and blamed FOX, Republicans and racism. After the Baltimore sting netted a pair of ACORNs, a top official of that outfit stated they have plans to sue O'Keefe, Giles, and the FOX network. Why FOX? Because they had the audacity to report this mess.

Baltimore City's top prosecutor even issued a threatening statement boasting of possible charges against O'Keefe and Giles. The prosecutor, Patricia Jessamy, is a Barack Obama supporter, surprise, surprise.

In the Brooklyn nuthouse, ACORN officials advised the two criminals appearing before them to squirrel away their ill-gotten proceeds. "When you buy the house with a back yard, you get a tin and bury it down in there, and you put the money right in, and you put grass over it, and you don't tell a single soul but yourself where it is"

The streetwalker and her man posing undercover, that is undercover, not under the covers people, entered the Brooklyn office with the idea of purchasing a house to operate a brothel. The brothel will house underage children to work as prostitutes. ACORN was more than willing to help establish this criminal enterprise.

What is particularly troubling is that ACORN and its friends, i.e. the POTUS and Patricia Jessamy who happens to be president of the Baltimore Child Abuse Center, claim to be for the youth, the community, and the downtrodden. Those groups are hurt the most by this corruption and complicity by the "powers that be." Where is the outrage, folks?

Democratic Representative John Conyers was called off investigating ACORN. Conyers claims, "The powers that be called [him] off." Even Barney Frank reversed his stance to deny ACORN public funds.

Perhaps, the ACORN nuts exposed by O’Keefe and Giles does not bother Barney Frank. After all, the Washington Times reported that Frank’s Capitol Hill apartment was operating a real life prostitution ring, where his gay lover was performing...let’s just say a public service.

Did I ask yet, where is the outrage?

Baltimore Prosecutor May Go After Undercover Producers of ACORN Video

By Tony Vega

Baltimore City's State Attorney, Patricia Jessamy may prosecute James O'Keefe for exposing ACORN employees in an undercover sting. That sting operation, which James O'Keefe posed as a pimp and Hanna Giles posed as a prostitute revealed some very disturbing footage about corruption inside of ACORN.

On Thursday, the undercover operatives armed with a hidden camera walked into an ACORN office in Baltimore City, MD. The man (pimp) and woman (prostitute) ask about buying a house (brothel) and how to account on tax forms for the woman's income. An ACORN employee advises the woman to list her occupation as "performance artist."

ACORN fired the two employees. Less than 24-hours later, in Washington DC a similar sting netted more ACORN employees. The DC employees were also fired. Clearly, there is a systemic problem regarding ACORN.

Rep. Conyers, Michigan Democrat, called for hearings on accusations the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) has committed crimes ranging from voter fraud to a mob-style "protection" racket.

Conyers abruptly reversed the decision to investigate and claimed, "The powers that be decided against it." Mr. Conyers will not elaborate.

Patricia Jessamy, Baltimore's top prosecutor, who ironically happens to be president of the Baltimore Child Abuse Center, became aware of ACORN conspiring with a pimp and a prostitute to exploit Hispanic children in a prostitution ring. Wonderful, Jessamy is the right person to bring justice forward! Think again folks, the prosecutor's office had this to say:

Baltimore, MD – September 11, 2009 – We have received inquiries from citizens and the media asking whether the Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office would initiate a criminal investigation for acts allegedly committed at ACORN offices located in Baltimore. The only information received in reference to this alleged criminal behavior was a YouTube video. Upon review by this office, the video appears to be incomplete. In addition, the audio portion could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law, Annotated Code of Maryland Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article §10-402, which requires two party consent.

If it is determined that the audio portion now being heard on YouTube was illegally obtained, it is also illegal under Maryland Law to willfully use or willfully disclose the content of said audio. The penalty for the unlawful interception, disclosure or use of it is a felony punishable up to 5 years.
No word if ACORN was threatened with any probes. Patricia Jessamy is clearly allowing her ideology to trump her dedication to abused children.

What an Obamanation! You see, Jessamy is a huge Barack Obama supporter, Obama is a huge ACORN fan and vise versa. It's all in the family, Chicago style.

Barack Obama was a community organizer in Project Vote and served as ACORN's lawyer. He also funneled more than $800,000 to ACORN during the campaign and ACORN endorsed Obama in the primary.

We are in the Bizarro world, where the POTUS calls off investigations of voter fraud and other illegalities when it is perpetrated by ACORN and the Black Panthers, but gives the wink and nod to go after the CIA.

In the same crazy world, ACORN's Maryland top official had this to say, "We believe our country is beyond this type of attack and call on all Americans to demand that FOX stop its RACIST coverage."

The race card again! I can understand blasting FOX; after all, they are the only network with the cajones to go after Obama's peeps, but racist!?

ACORN was caught on tape advising how to shield a criminal enterprise where Hispanic girls would have been placed in a child prostitution ring. And FOX is racist for reporting it!?!

Folks, At least $53 million in federal funds have gone to ACORN and Barack Obama could funnel $8.5 billion more tax dollars to them, despite being under investigation for voter registration fraud in a dozen states.

Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-MN, wants to stop the flow of tax dollars to ACORN. On a voice vote, Barney Frank agreed but like Conyers, he had a sudden change of heart and said it was a mistake to vote yes. Frank now plans to offer another amendment to the bill on the House floor that would allow non-profits that have been indicted to receive grants.

The president should be proud.

Van Jones Resigned, Other Obama Czars Must Go

By Tony Vega

This is published as follow up content to: Obama to Fire Van Jones?

Preface: The following is not a complete list; for the sake of brevity it includes only four of the president’s appointments. Timothy Geithner is not on the list, but his resignation should have been tendered before Van Jones.

The POTUS appointed Geithner as our Treasury Chief, how’s that been working out for us? Another quick reminder, Geithner was the CEO of the New York Federal Reserve and presided over some of the largest economic failures prior to being selected as our Treasury Chief. Folks, this was in addition to Geithner not paying his taxes for 5-years, more on the Treasury Czar here.

Van Jones was not alone folks and I urge you to turn the pages for yourselves. Gather your own stubborn facts on other Barack Obama appointments such as:

Mark Lloyd, FCC Diversity Czar

Lloyd is a Saul Alinsky disciple, as is Barack Obama. The FCC Diversity Czar is also a Hugo Chavez fan and describes his successful revolution in respectful if not glowing terms. Mark Lloyd's use of the term "democratic" appears to be interchangeable with the term "communist."

Video: FCC 'Diversity' Czar on Chavez's Venezuela: 'Incredible...Democratic Revolution' |

John Holdren, Science Czar

Holdren along with co-authors of a 1977 textbook, desired plans to force single women to abort their babies or put them up for adoption; implanting sterilizing capsules in people when they reach puberty; and spiking water reserves and staple foods with a chemical that would make people sterile.

Obama's Science Czar Considered Forced Abortions, Sterilization as Population Growth Solutions - Political News -

Cass Sunstein, Regulatory Czar

Sunstein calls for a "notice and take down" law that would require bloggers and service providers to "take down falsehoods upon notice," even those made by a commenter. AC writers, start scrolling through your comment section and beware.

Who makes the determination that your writing or comments are false, will it be left wing or right wing groups? Cass Sunstein has already indicated he doesn't like so-called “false rumors” about his longtime University of Chicago friend and colleague, Barack Obama.

Will Obama have the power via Sunstein to silence such bothersome claims as "Obama Pals around with terrorists"?

This may not rub you the wrong way Obama supporters, but remember the days when you enjoyed the freedom to bash Bush.


Valerie Jarrett, Senior White House Adviser

On August 15, 2009, Valerie Jarrett attended a Daily Kos Net Roots conference and showed love for Van Jones:

JARRETT: You guys know Van Jones? [Applause. Moderator injects: "This is his house apparently."]

JARRETT: Oooh. Van Jones, alright! So, Van Jones. We were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House. We were watching him, uh, really, he’s not that old, for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland. And all the creative ideas he has. And so now, we have captured that. And we have all that energy in the White House.

Remember part 1, it was reported that Obama’s Green Jobs Czar rallied for cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, in Oakland. What a way to get a job at the White House, albeit temporary.

Certainly, by mid-August Van Jones was exposed to the public. Two obvious positions exist, either Barack Obama endorsed the anti-American sentiment or Barack Obama is incompetent as a leader, either one is perilous.

Valerie Jarrett was the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza a housing complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006 for deplorable conditions. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted.

Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by Obama's close friends and political supporters, including Jarrett and Rezko. Follow the money folks, more here and here.

I often claim the media is corrupt; their silence on these matters bolsters that claim. The media, regardless of my disdain, is a very powerful institution in part due to the influence it has over politicians. Exposure forced Van Jones to resign.

Ride the momentum and continue to ply the pressure, it will not happen unless you get involved. Call the White House and demand the removal of the above-mentioned Czars and officials.

Obama to Fire Van Jones?

Anthony "Van" Jones, wikimedia commons

By Tony Vega

UPDATE: Obama adviser Van Jones resigns amid controversy!

Whether the POTUS fires Van Jones or asks for his resignation shouldn't even be a question in America. The fact that we are debating such a thing is evidence of our sorry state of affairs. A self-avowed radical Communist should not have made it to the White House, be it by appointment or election.

The watchdogs are being outnumbered and the wolves are taking over. Have faith fellow Americans, for the sons and daughters of the Greatest Generation are among us and will save our sorry butts, from ourselves.

"[Van Jones'] extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate."- Rep. Mike Pence, R-IN.

Why aren't the major news outlets and scores of Representatives on both sides of the aisle reporting and/or calling for the resignation of Anthony "Van" Jones?

The troubling details that have emerged calls into question not only the Marxist ideals of the Green Jobs Czar, but more importantly, it continues to expose Barack Obama's penchant for radical and anti-American affiliations.

You may have not grasped the gravity of or cared about Obama's 20+ year affiliation with Jeremiah Wright, or his association with William Ayers, Tony Rezko and others, but Barack Obama is no longer the candidate he is the president. We cannot afford the luxury of burying our head in the sand, no matter how blissful.

Van Jones was appointed by Barack Obama in March 2009, as the Special Adviser for Green Jobs, also known as the Green Jobs Czar. This was with the blessings of his Senior Adviser and close friend, Valerie Jarrett.

White House Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about the fate of Van Jones and simply replied, "He continues to work for this administration."

What on Van Jones' résumé could have attracted Barack Obama? Let's examine a few nuggets:

  • Member of the board of Apollo Alliance, one of the founders is also a close Obama associate, Jesse Jackson Jr. The NY affiliate is headed by domestic terrorist, Jeff Jones. Jeff Jones founded the Weathermen with Bill Ayers.
  • Founder and leader of the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM).
  • Co-founded Ella Baker Human Rights Center. His adviser was Elizabeth Martinez, a Maoist and board member of Movement for a Democratic Society, alongside terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn.
  • Advocated for a nationwide "resistance" against police, accusing them of using the 9/11 attacks to carry out policies of torture.
  • Founded the Bay Area Cop Watch. More on organized anti-police activities here.
  • Supporter of Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, a convicted cop killer. Obama's Green Jobs Czar even disrupted a special youth conference in Oakland, CA to rally for Mumia.

"I met all these young radical people of color, I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And I was, like, this is what I need to be a part of. I spent the next 10-years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary" -Anthony "Van" Jones, special adviser to the president of the United States.

The president's special adviser also joined ranks with "9/11 Truthers" alleging that the Bush administration was complicit in the terrorist attacks.

Shouldn't they be giving Bush a fist bump over such a maneuver? I am surprised the terrorist embracing radicals would complain about such a conspiracy, oh right I get it...they have the copyright on anti-American crimes.

Not convinced the Green Jobs Czar embraces Marxism? Van Jones reportedly named his son after Marxist revolutionary Amilcar Cabral.

The Obama administration is top-heavy with radicals, more on that in a follow-up article. In the meant time call the White House and demand the removal of one, Anthony Van Jones.
