Environmentalism – Path to Global Tyranny

Letter to the Editor by DeWitt Edwards.

The following is a quote from Gary Kah’s book The New World Religion. Among those at the forefront of his movement (Globalization) there is one individual who stands out more than any other. Believed by many to have fallen from the political scene with the collapse of the Soviet Union, he currently wields more power and influence in shaping the future of the world than perhaps any diplomat of our generation. Yet strangely, most of us are not even aware of his influence, let alone that he has risen to the top of the one world movement. His keen sense of timing and political prowess has enabled him to forge alliances where others before him have failed. His friends include many of the world’s most adept politicians, financial powerbrokers and religious leaders. The person of whom I am speaking is Mikhail Gorbachev.

In 1989 Gorbachev was quoted speaking to the Politburo saying the following ” In October 1917 we parted with the old world rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, the world of communism. We shall never turn off that road.” He also said “Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our aim is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep.” During 1989 when the Berlin wall came down he proclaimed ” I am a convinced Communist. For some this may be a fantasy but for me it is my main goal”
Gorbachev’s blueprint for the future is manipulating the world’s people into accepting a one world government under the pretense of saving the environment. He has created a global Foundation called Green Cross which has as it’s magna carta ” The Earth Charter” which he hopes will rival the Ten Commandments. He is helping to initiate a complete restructuring of our economy,our political system and also our religious views. He has also been instrumental in the scaling back of our armed forces while at the same time increasing the presence of foreign troops on our soil.

Gorbachev, Maurice strong and Al Gore are referred to as “The Three Musketeers” of the environmental movement. It appears that the environmental situation is being used along with instilling the fear of biological warfare in order to further the one world agenda. Gorbachev states ” The environmental crisis is the cornerstone for the New World Order” Maurice strong ( U.N. environmental leader ) was quoted as saying, ” Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” James Garrison ( President of the Gorbachev Foundation ) says ” we are going to end up with world government. It’s inevitable… There’s going to be conflict, coercion and consensus. That’s all part of what will be required as we give birth to the first global civilization.”

Martial law could be instituted at some point as the first step toward this One world Government. Of course this is only speculation but listen to another quote from Gary Kah. “Another reason why the environment is such an important issue to Gorbachev is that it will enable him to introduce and ratify comprehensive international treaties granting unprecedented power to seize government and private property all in the name of protecting the environment.

In fact, Gorbachev’s mandate for the future includes the imposition of stringent global environmental laws that would regulate every area of life. Toward this end he has been supporting the creation of an all encompassing planetary document called “The Earth Charter”. Samantha Smith, a journalist who attended “The State of the World Forum” confirms these developments. “At this conference we were told that an Earth charter, A Bill of Rights for the planet, would be presented to the United Nations for ratification then hopefully adopted by the year 2000.

According to Smith, Maurice Strong, the U.N’s top environmental activist, referred to the charter as a Magna Carta for earth.” Gorbachev goes even further, describing the charter as a new set of rules to guide humanity. He states “My hope is that this charter will be a kind of Ten Commandments, a Sermon on the Mount, that provides a guide for human behaviour toward the environment in the next century and beyond.” Gorbachev and the U.N. are simply waiting for the proper moment to implement any final agreements in order to begin full enforcement of their programs. Together with other major environmental legislation already drafted, the charter if accepted, will govern life in the 21st century.” Samantha continued “Gorbachev harped on the importance of having “consensus” for the Global Governance – where nations under world government would lose sovereignty, giving way to international laws that will dictate common beliefs, values, standards and behaviour, and conform to the consensus of a chosen group of leaders. The former head of Russia’s communist party has selected 100 elite “innovative thinkers” called the Global Brain Trust or The Council of the Wise, who will meet annually at the Presidio ( probably now they will meet at Northeastern ) to guide global issues during the transition into the next century.”

Note: The Gorbachev Foundation has now moved from Presidio to Northeastern University in Mass.

State Nullification of Obamacare

To The Editor:

RE: State Nullification
The lawsuit that Virginia has initiated against our having to have health insurance is commendable. However, the whole bill is unconstitutional and we can put a stop to ObamaCare entirely in Virginia.  Under the authority of the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, legislation passed by our Assembly and signed by the Governor would make us immune to ObamaCare altogether.
The key provision of this model nullification act declares: “The Legislature of the State of Virginia declares that the federal laws known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (Public Law 111-148) and the “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010″ (Public Law 111-152), signed by President Barack Obama on March 23 and 30, 2010, are not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violate its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratifiers, and are hereby declared to be invalid in this State, shall not be recognized by this State, are specifically rejected by this State, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this State.”
This nullification of ObamaCare is being proposed in the several states, which adds considerable clout.  Nullification-type legislation is not new. It has been introduced in many states in recent years. For more information on this you can go to http://bit.ly/c9NpB / .
Although this was not passed in this year’s Virginia General Assembly we need to make an issue of it in the coming election and inform others so that it can pass next year.  Not only would this make us immune to the provisions of ObamaCare but also it would set a precedent, which would lead to the end of many other unconstitutional laws in the years to come. State nullification – states rights – is the answer to all the unconstitutional laws and regulations that the federal government is foisting upon us.

Hidden Cost of Government – Unfunded Liablilities

The Threat:

Virtually every public sector entity utilizes multiple “sets of books” to account for debt, deficits, and unfunded liabilities of welfare programs and the costs of their own employee benefits. In some cases, most notably concerning health insurance continuation coverage, there is virtually no unfunded liability disclosed to taxpayers. The federal government does not include the unfunded liabilities of Medicare, Social Security, or its own retirement programs as part of the official US debt. All federal and most non-federal public sector entities also pay higher salaries and offer better benefits to their employees than can be provided in the private sector. The massive cost of early retirement for public sector employees, available 10-25 years earlier than is allowed by Social Security, together with free or highly subsidized health insurance during the early retirement years, is generally hidden from taxpayers. Virtually every government entity has huge understated and underfunded liabilities that are either not represented at all, or are misrepresented to taxpayers via employing misleading or incomplete actuarial and accounting methods that the government itself will not tolerate of the private sector. A report prepared for FEN by Andrew Biggs, a scholar from the American Enterprise Institute, states that the disclosed “debt” of non-federal entities is approximately $2.2 trillion (the sum total of all bonds), and that the additional “off the balance sheet” unfunded liability for non-federal public trillion, not the $12.3 trillion currently stated as “debt”. The result is that the total federal and non-federal debt (if sector pension plans is currently stated to be around $400 billion. Biggs concluded that the actual unfunded liability for these public sector pension plans would be $3.5 trillion if more realistic and conservative interest rate assumptions were utilized. Attempts by others to determine the true federal debt (including unfunded obligations) result in the determination that if one federal “balance sheet” were utilized, the total federal debt would exceed $107 unfunded liabilities are included) is an estimated $112+ trillion, or SEVEN TIMES higher than the total $15 trillion currently disclosed to taxpayers.!!

The Initiative:

Introduce the Taxpayer Disclosure Act and seek Congressional, State and local level support for it. We will support the Open Government Directive and will also seek support for the adoption of unified balance sheets to be provided by all public sector entities, done in accordance with the same accounting standards that are required in the private sector (FASB) and in accordance with actuarial valuation and reporting standards that comply with FEN’s, “Best Practices for Valuation and Reporting of Public Employee Pension Plans.”

Tri-Cities Liberty Alliance


March 1, 2011


The calls for a Constitutional Convention by the VA General Assembly have been defeated!  Thanks to those of you who made calls, dedicated TCLA patriots and John Birch members like Tom Redfern, Herb Lux and Joe Kee.  The dangerous prospect of possibly undermining the Constitution has abated, at least for this year.  Now get this, most of the credit should go to the Democrats, who were against the con con bills for perhaps the wrong reasons.  We’ll take the win and hope for a more informed electorate next time.

Tri-Cities Liberty Alliance has launched a new website called CUT DC.COM.  The web address is simple – cutdc.com – and I hope you save it as a favorite and check it often for new material.   There will be regular updates featuring an important news article that is critical to the cause of liberty and limited government.  Most politically sensitive articles are suppressed by big media, so citizens end up with a stale diet of controlled news.  We aim to change that.  CUT DC will also archive these newsletters for your review and study.  I have added pictures!  In addition, CUTDC.COM will contain special letters to editors that deal with critical issues of freedom, the police state, unwise militarism and the ongoing financial debacle.  Check out CUT DC’s powerful resources like the US Constitution, JBS Freedom Index, liberty web sites, Alex Jones audiovox and others as they are added.  Feel free to sign up if you would like e-mail updates and express your comments on the blog posts. 


Liberty Meeting this Thursday – March 3rd at Demolition Coffee, we’ll celebrate the win over the con con bills and get geared up for the coming spring.  I hope you can make it!  Please click on the link for details. 



Obama borrowed an extra $30,000 per household in two years.  That brings the total national debt per household to over $125,000.  That’s change you can count on.


Obama’s humanitarian conquest of Libya – Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.  Obama has been following the footsteps of his predecessor in almost every way when it comes to foreign policy, even though superficial appearances have changed.  Pretty much the same strings are attached and they are pulling the teleprompter reading marionette toward another foreign conflict, this time under the guise of humanitarianism.  Forty-one top neocons, with over a dozen Bush Administration officials, have signed a letter calling for NATO and the US to prepare for military intervention in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi the dictator.  Most of these signatories were also in the pro-war Project for a New American Century that pushed aggressively for the war in Iraq, and these globalists have transitioned to the newer Foreign Policy Initiative.  It’s the same list of names, like a who’s who of CFR members and Jewish powerbrokers, who are now invoking compassion on the Libyans, while hypocritically carrying the guilt of over a million dead Iraqis.  Libya does have 46 billion barrels of oil, but that’s an unrelated side-issue. 


 How effective are drone attacks in Pakistan?  Obama has stepped up drone attacks against Taliban and so-called al Qaeda targets in Pakistan.  Not only are we not at war with Pakistan, but it has nuclear weapons.  Reports there tell of 14 insurgent leaders killed during the last year at a cost of 700 civilian lives lost.  That’s a ratio of 50 to 1.  There are other estimates that indicate a percentage of 90% innocent casualties to each enemy killed.  Many of us are not really concerned about these drone attacks, but what if it was your mother or father who became a statistic?  How about your daughter,  son or spouse?  Do you think it represents Christian principles to murder so many innocent Pakistani people in a violent, reality video game run by the CIA?  What if Mexico decided  shooting up American civilians in Texas was a reasonable cost in its pursuit of drug criminals?



This explains Osama Bin Laden’s CIA relationship and reluctance of Presidents Clinton and Bush to eliminate him.  These short videos depict intelligence whistleblowers telling a different story from that of the mainstream media.



Good news for pro-lifers – Virginia’s General Assembly recently passed a law requiring abortion clinics to be regulated as hospitals.  The “historic law’ should have the effect of reducing the number of clinics that perform abortions.  In 2003 there were 20 abortion clinics operating in Texas before they passed a similar law, but 4 years later that number had dropped to three. 


Gates Foundation controls the media through massive journalism grants – Last year, Bill Gates explained how the vaccination agenda was part of a plan to reduce overall population.  The son of a Planned Parenthood Director and eugenicist, Gates and his foundation  pays millions of dollars to news outfits like ABC, The Guardian, New York Times, and PBS.  The BMGF also trains them to promote foundation interests by providing journalists with talking points in favor of the Gates’ agenda, that ends up as propaganda in the news cycle.  Under a cloak of humanitarianism, the Gates agenda also has a focus on controlling the world’s food supply with the likes of Monsanto. 


Former director of “Star Wars” tells truth about the program.  Dr. Robert Bowman directed the Strategic Defense Initiative (Star Wars) when it was a secret during the Carter and Reagan Administrations.   Bowman says the plan was not to be defensive as announced, but offensive.  It was being designed to give the US a strategic first strike advantage and according to President Reagan’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, it was “military lunacy.” 






Your taxes are going up 

  To the editor: 

I believe we will soon experience the biggest tax increase since the 1940’s and it could greatly cripple the economy.  This new tax hike will further impoverish the poor more than any other class, yet they will be promised no added tax burden.  This tax will even affect those who have no income.  What is this new tax?  Inflation.
Many trillions of bailout and stimulus dollars have been created out of thin air by the privately run Federal Reserve cartel and this new currency has dramatically increased the money supply now held in bank reserves.  Additionally, over a trillion dollars have been created and sent to foreign banks to bail them out, further lowering the buying power of existing dollars.  In other words, you and I have paid for the bailouts of foreign banks and will pay when this inflation storm eventually hits stateside.  Supply and demand rules the economy and we won’t escape it.  When the supply of dollars increases, the value of existing dollars inevitably drops, though the process may take time. 
The federal government is spending $1.5 trillion more than it takes in.  In order to fund this stupendously, irresponsible spending, the Federal Reserve is printing money to buy government bonds (debt), digging us even deeper.  “The Bernank” admitted he wanted to generate some inflation in hopes of jump starting growth, but remember, inflation is a tax.  When banks start lending into the next artificial bubble, we will begin to pay the new tax, in fact, we are already seeing energy and food prices rise.  An 8% rate of inflation is equivalent to an 8% tax increase because the purchasing power of your income drops.  Just like a spike in income tax, you will have less money to buy things you need, because of higher prices.  Eventually, in time, your income may rise.  Inflation can reach extreme levels from 20% on up to 1000’s of percent if things get out of hand, like in Germany during the early 1920’s.
Politicians and news media will ponder as to where all this inflation originated, but be forwarned, this stealth tax is now being levied by an irresponsible government and an enabling Federal Reserve Bank that was created to help the government grow to enormous size, without the unpopular necessity of raising taxes.  Inflation is taxation without representation.

Are rolling blackouts becoming more prevalent?


Published: February 25, 2011
To the Editor:
I heard today that the state of Texas has been experiencing rolling blackouts due to the cold and more wintry than normal winter. At least that, per mainstream media, is what they are saying.
Question: Why haven’t Texas and other states been given permission to build new power plants over the last several years, which could have avoided this catastrophe today? Do you think it may be due to the strict Environmental Protection Agency regulations who, with the support of the current Administration, is pushing wind power, solar, and “clean coal,” whatever that is.
What’s wrong with nuclear, hydroelectric, or just plain coal power? I guess it’s now OK for people to start dying from frostbite or, at the other extreme, heat prostration as long as it “saves the planet.”
This is not the power company’s fault. They can only manage with what they have. Could these insane “rolling blackouts” be coming to Virginia in the near future? This is all about politics and it’s getting very old and moldy. I hope we still have a country by the time the 2012 election comes around in order to rid this country of all this political baloney.

The un-American Patriot Act is up for extension this month and Congress is pushing to extend these Nazi-styled laws another year.  Some at Capitol Hill are moving to make them permanent.  Here is some very important information from a letter that was recently printed in the Hopewell News.  Please study it and call your legislators. 

Former CIA officer Phillip Giraldi characterized the Patriot Act as legislation similar to that of the Nazis.  Both used terrorism and fear of the enemy to strip citizens of their civil liberties, furthermore, Giraldi believes Americans are no safer because of it.  


Shortly after 9-11 the House Judiciary Committee had agreed on a bi-partisan bill to help strengthen anti-terrorism efforts, instead, the “Ashcroft version” was substituted.  It was printed at 3:45 in the morning and rammed through later that day, disallowing House members to analyze the 345 page document before voting.


The Patriot Act empowers the President to label an individual as an “enemy combatant,” thereby rendering him ineligible of Constitutional protections.  Thousands of foreigners have been arrested, abused and imprisoned without charges because of this sweeping law.  American citizen Jose’ Padilla was held for three years without charges and psychologically tortured.  Sixteen year old Ashton Lundaby was also incarcerated for months without charges, at times incommunicado.  It removes our cherished right of due process, enthrones the presumption of guilt, and eviscerates habeas corpus.


Blatantly unconstitutional, the Orwellian Patriot Act allows the FBI to search your home and even remove property without a proper warrant.  Feds can rifle through medical, library, banking and other personal records without probable cause and initiate gag orders on information requests.  They can spy on your computer activity, wiretap telephone calls, and surveil Americans based on our 1st Amendment activities.  Many parts of the Act have nothing to do with terrorism, but instead, turn everyone into suspects.  These powers are unconstitutional and therefore illegal.  It’s a throwback to the old Soviet Empire and we need to demand lawmakers like Congressman Forbes and Cantor to entirely repeal the Patriot Acts.  Ben Franklin said, “those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”           JKR


Documentary Unconstitutional – Don’t be mistaken, this revealing video about the Patriot Acts is based on old-time conservative values and it’s good!



Thursday’s Liberty Meeting –  This Thursday on the 17th, we plan to meet at the Demolition Coffeehouse in Petersburg.  The last meeting was a blast, and maybe the next one will be smokin too!  Meeting will start at 7PM but some members will show up at 6:30 to pray for the nation.  How can we restore this broken country and economy without God’s help?  Click here for details.


System for federal takeover of TV and radio broadcasting in place. 
Confirmed: FBI was warned the day before Oklahoma City Bombing.  New documents released through the Freedom of Information Act reveal the FBI received a call the day before the deadly bombing, further indicating an inside job.  The BATF office in the Murrah Federal Building was evacuated the day of the bombing, but they failed to notify other tenants, even leaving children in the nursery to die.  Feds tried to make a deal with Terry Nichols to cover up FBI foreknowledge and involvement in the incident.  Plot was used to demonize patriot militias that were springing up, and it worked.
Ron Paul wins CPAC Straw Poll!  Now he’s under fire from the neocons. 
Ron Paul’s CPAC speech – Inspiring and substantive!
Staged Portland terror plot being used to expand domestic spy program.  As usual, the FBI provacateurs another patsy and even provides the fake bomb to create another pretext for an expanded police state.  Same MO, different names.  Did you know that a totalitarian regime cannot function without an iron-fisted police/surveillance state?  Read 1984 when you have a chance.  Can you see the pieces coming together?
Bush and Obama – How different are they?  Gays in the military and the huge Obamacare program are a couple of the differences but overall, are the two really different?  Bush pushed for amnesty for illegals, passed a huge Medicare Drug Plan, signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership with Canada and Mexico and he even passed the onerous Sarbanes-Oxley financial regulation law that bogged down start-ups from getting new capital.  So what has Obama done differently than Bush regarding the endless wars and violations of civil liberties like the Patriot Acts that he complained about?  Read this excellent article from the John Birch Society and find out how different they really are.
ACTION ALERT!  A dangerous Constitutional Convention bill is moving through the state legislature!  We have worked diligently to defeat these con con bills and have had some success, but this is the one that was recently promoted by the governor:

The Governor has introduced legislation for a Constitutional Convention under the guise of  a balanced budget!!   This legislation (HJ 852) is assigned to the House Rules Committee, which is chaired by Bill Howell, the Speaker of the House.  The Committee meets Tuesday @ 4 PM, although no docket has yet to be set for the next meeting. 


It matters not what the reason for the call may have been, in this case a balance budget, once called, the Convention  has no rules. It can do anything the delegates choose to do. If Obama, Reid and Pelosi control the convention, you can just imagine what would happen.


We need to oppose this BIG TIME.

Letters to the Editor:

The following are letters from TCLA members –

 Homeland Security the New Gestapo?

 To the editor: 

Totalitarian regimes require national police forces, like the former Nazi Gestapo or Lenin’s Cheka, that operated above the law to ruthlessly impose despotic rule.  One hurdle modern totalitarianism aims to overcome is sovereign, local police forces, committed to protecting their communities.  Homeland Security addresses this obstacle by federalizing law enforcement groups, further undermining states’ rights.  DHS/FEMA lures police departments into it’s web with equipment and financial subsidies, then indoctrinates officers with paranoia of domestic terrorism and civil unrest.  Even more ominous is their fear-mongering of decent Americans.  According to the February 2009 MIAC Report (Missouri Fusion Center) Pro-lifers, Constitutionalists, returning veterans, Ron Paul and gun rights supporters may be terrorist threats.  Give me a break!

Homeland Security’s TSA operates above the law, not only asking for your papers, they demand to see your privates.  Transportation Security goons gladly trip over the Bill of Rights to handle your junk.  When government trains agents to sexually assault air travelers, what’s next?  As we attack the matador’s red cape of terrorism, the shrewd bullfighter is setting up the police state infrastructure, for the final blow to the republic.  Will the next staged crisis lead to martial law and New World Order socialism, endorsed by Bush I, Kissinger, and Gordon Brown?  Who will enforce this prison planet?  Homeland Gestapo.   

While campaigning, Obama said we’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful and well funded as our military.  Could this be a gigantic Gestapo network complete with informants, checkpoints, FEMA Camps, torture, forced inoculation, gun confiscations, and nighttime disappearances?  Combine that with America’s Stasi, domestic spy network of 72 Fusion Centers.  Homeland Security is more dangerous than some half-witted patsy, being provocateured by the FBI to sell the nightmare.  In addition to closing Homeland Gestapo, we need our peace officers to stand with us and unite with Oathkeepers.org and Sheriff Mack.

Tea Party membership rising

Published: February 9, 2011


To the Editor:

To those left wing politicians who have said that the Tea Party movement is just a “fad” and will soon die out: Guess again! The Tea Parties are growing like “bunny-rabbits!” Considering the present state of our government, it doesn’t take a recruitment program to persuade American citizens to join the Tea Parties.
These Tea Parties consist of very concerned citizens from all walks of life and are sick and tired of the insane spending, government takeovers, unreasonable regulations, a healt hcare bill that was shoved down their throats, making a mockery of our Constitution – to name just a few of their concerns. They are, therefore, demanding “real change” to a government that is running amok. They are also voicing with great vociferousness that President Obama can keep his “change,” in order to allow the economy to grow and create real private sector jobs. This is the voice of the Tea Parties and will keep on getting louder and louder until the agenda of the Obama administration comes to a grinding halt. Contrary for the liberals calling these gatherings done by a “riotous angry mob,” demonstrations are all being done in a very polite, orderly, and peaceful manner per the “Right to Assemble” as stated in our Constitution.
The unprecedented defeat of several liberal incumbents in the House was a significant victory for America last November. However, until control of the Senate and the White House is also achieved, the November election of 2010 will just slightly impede the progress of the Obama administration agenda towards Socialism/Marxism.
The “Tea Partiers” don’t want America to look like Europe! The Tea Parties will show Congress who is really in charge, at the voting booth. They voted them in and they can vote them out. The Progressive Left had better look out for 2012. The 2010 Election was just the beginning!

Stop trying to draw a connection from shooting to Republicans

Published: February 12, 2011
To the Editor:
I believe there may have been a misprint or misunderstanding in the title given to Karen Ann DeLuca’s recent letter, “Tucson, health care, Palin and gun control.” (Jan. 27, 2011) Nowhere in Ms. DeLuca’s letter does she mention Sarah Palin by name. Ms. DeLuca’s use of the word “palingenesis” may have given that impression, however, when she referred to a “palingenesis of instability ⦠that this country’s response to Sept. 11 was supposedly designed to prevent.”
I had to pull my Funk and Wagnall’s to learn exactly what that means and discovered that it refers to a “spiritual rebirth by means of baptism” or “the supposed transmigration of the soul of somebody who has died into the body of another person or animal.” One can question her use of the word in this context, but I won’t quibble. I don’t recall a palingenetic response to Sept. 11, I just thought that President George W. Bush responded militarily to an attack from an enemy. Was there some rebirth of patriotism after that attack, which might be characterized as a “baptism” by fire? I believe there was, but it may be long forgotten by most.
It’s not the tortured prose of Ms. DeLuca’s letter that saddens me, however. It’s her tiresome attempt to draw a straight line from a murderous lunatic with a gun to her portrayal of Republicans as, well, murderous lunatics with guns standing outside hospitals and clinics to deny the sick and injured the “heroic health care, funded by excellent health insurance ⦠that other members of Congress carry.”
In one sentence she expresses her hope that “even less moderate Republicans would now consider being less ‘Gun-Ho’ about broadening select constitutional provisions” and in the next warns about “the role that the increasingly polarizing political rhetoric may have had in the physical harm just done, before the tragedy of Jan. 8 sparks a ‘kindling effect'”. If polarizing political rhetoric represents something to be avoided, Madam, do not employ it to defend your opinion. Unless we are to assume that incivility in the defense of liberal platitudes is no vice, while moderation in the pursuit of truth is no virtue. Do not strike a match and then curse the fire.
Please try to understand that Congresswoman Giffords and the other victims were not shot by Sara Palin, John Boehner, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Eric Cantor or Ted Nugent, so don’t blame them. A sane, rational person understands that no gun ever sprouted legs and attacked innocent people indiscriminately (except in cartoons), so the gun in this story is blameless. No, those poor people were shot by Jared Loughner, a man with a history of mental illness that was not caused by his possession of a firearm and was common knowledge to those that knew him, including the sheriff that had been warned of Loughner’s violent tendencies. No one in their right mind – that is, no one who is not mentally ill – would suggest that Loughner was acting on behalf of his loyalty to Barack Obama, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Jon Stewart or the NRA.
And finally, none of us – not Ms. DeLuca, not I, no pundit and no politician – can be justified in substantiating a political philosophy on the pain, suffering and blood of innocents. To do so goes beyond snarky rhetoric; it is a shameful exploitation of the aggrieved.
