Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“That yearning of humanity to feel connected is so strong, yet the political divisions imposed on them by controlling tribal leaders tells them otherwise. Fight, attack, destroy anything foreign to ourselves and our way of life, and maintain that state of continual war. All false stimuli.”
Zen Gardner

“The reason that the U.S. is concerned over Iran and cruising for an all-out fight is that the empire demands weakness among all those around it that might conceivably challenge its dominance. It demands compliant satellites wherever it can create them or force them into compliance. Is this the historic role of Americans? Is this what America is about? Is it about political domination of the world? Is it about empire? Is it about suppressing progress and liberty in the aim of keeping other nations weak? Is it about putting into practice a psychopathology of power?”
Michael S. Rozeff

“I just don't feel sorry for aggressors who reap the fruits of their actions. Even when the person they are attacking is worse than they are. In fact, I find it very humorous when bad guys clash, as long as no innocent person is hurt in the crossfire.
Let them all arm themselves however they want, and I'll seek shelter until they have all ‘honored’ themselves to death. Good riddance to these burdens on civilization.”
Kent McManigal

“If the injustice is part of the necessary friction of the machine of government, let it go, let it go; perchance it will wear smooth — certainly the machine will wear out. If the injustice has a spring, or a pulley, or a rope, or a crank, exclusively for itself, then perhaps you may consider whether the remedy will not be worse than the evil; but if it is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong which I condemn.”
Henry David Thoreau

“True leaders set a positive example for others to follow by partaking in voluntary interactions with their peers and showing the community how to live more meaningful and peaceful lives. These people may be artists, philosophers, inventors, builders, entrepreneurs or skilled workers that are involved in win-win scenarios with their fellow human beings. In other words, people who create some sort of value for the community, even if that value is just a good imagination or personality. With that being the case, if someone spends their time barking out orders, committing acts of violence and meddling in the lives of their peers, does it make any sense at all for us to call that person a ‘leader‘?”
J. G. Vibes

“Government says it is making us safe. Meanwhile, the government’s wars kill tens of thousands and put Americans in harm’s way, and the domestic police state has never been so violent Government says that it is forcing us not to harm ourselves, but government threatens us with harm constantly with its guns, fines, courts and 10 million micro-coercions, not to mention its relentless looting of our bank accounts and purchasing power Government says it is making us polite and civil, but it unleashes an army of bureaucrats who are the very soul of rudeness, hence coarsening society in so many ways.”
Jeffrey Tucker

“In my view, that which is extreme is not that which violates the boundaries of ‘normal’ society, but which violates the boundaries of inherent truth, and conscience. In an honest society, an extremist is someone who denies the universal foundations of existence, and tries to play demigod in a fantasy world of moral relativism and rationalized criminality. A disjointed freak of nature that seeks to impose his twisted will upon others. Unfortunately, the honest definition of extremism is not the most popular amongst the frothing elitists that reside over the functions of our political structure today."
Brandon Smith

“Liberty is an easy word to say, but it is a hard word to live up to. Freedom has little to do with financial gain or personal pleasure. Accompanying Freedom is her constant and unattractive companion, Responsibility. Neither is she an only child. Patriotism and Morality are her sisters. They are inseparable: destroy one and all will die.”
Chuck Baldwin

“Despite all the mystification of ‘national security’ and ‘national interest,’ the interests served by the state’s military violence are every bit as particular as those served by any other violent actions carried out by other groups of individuals. The state is nothing but an association for armed violence on the part of those who make money at the expense of other people.
In this Orwellian conceptual world, the question of whether the state has the right to use violence doesn’t bear looking into. But in the real world, it does. The state is by far the greatest concentration of organized violence, and it almost always employs such violence for evil purposes — whether at Tahrir Square, Hama, or Oakland.”
Kevin Carson

“The government not only lies about war, it routinely lies about its lies about war.”
Charles Goyette

"One man with courage is a majority."
Thomas Jefferson
From the Darkness:
"The Obama administration has been quite clear in our opposition to decriminalization or legalization of illicit drugs."
Dan Restrepo, the top Latin America official of the Obama Regime

“I have said that when it comes to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, I will take no options off the table, and I mean what I say. That includes all elements of American power: a political effort aimed at isolating Iran, a diplomatic effort to sustain our coalition and ensure that the Iranian program is monitored, an economic effort that imposes crippling sanctions and, yes, a military effort to be prepared for any contingency.”
B. Obama

"The President must state unequivocally that under no circumstances will [Syrian President] Assad be allowed to finish what he has started, that there is no future in which Assad and his lieutenants will remain in control of Syria, and that the United States is prepared to use the full weight of our airpower to make it so."
Sen. John McCain, looking for more death to get off on [I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- The North Vietnamese would have the saved the world a lot of future grief if they had rightfully carved up McCain in a fit of revenge and thrown his remains in a rice paddy.]

“The ultimate goal of airstrikes should be to establish and defend safe havens in Syria, especially in the north, in which opposition forces can organize and plan their political and military activities against Assad. These safe havens could serve as platforms for the delivery of humanitarian and military assistance – including weapons and ammunition, body armor and other personal protective equipment, tactical intelligence, secure communications equipment, food and water, and medical supplies. These safe havens could also help the Free Syrian Army and other armed groups in Syria to train and organize themselves into more cohesive and effective military forces, likely with the assistance of foreign partners."
John McCain, outlining the coming US colonization of Syria

“We're a very pro-military state up here [in Alaska]. We recognize what it is that our men and women in uniform sacrifice for all of us to keep us secure. And at this point, we're watching Obama with his naive apologies to savages in Afghanistan who turn around and kill our soldiers.”
Sarah Palin, a whining bigot from the wilderness

“It’s clear that United States citizenship alone does not make such individuals immune from being targeted. Some have argued that the president is required to get permission from a federal court before taking action against a United States citizen who is a senior operational leader of Al Qaeda or associated forces. This is simply not accurate. Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarantees due process, it does not guarantee judicial process.”
Eric Holder, US Attorney General

"Yes, the situation with the Koran burning concerns me. I think that it is an indication of the challenges in that environment, and it's an indication that now is the time for us to transition.
We are not interested in staying there any longer than is necessary to assure that Al Qaeda is not operating there, and that there is sufficient stability that it doesn't end up being a free-for-all after ISAF [NATO's International Security Assistance Force] has left.
There are going to be bumps along the road. just as there were in Iraq."

B. Obama [Those “bumps” happen to be human lives being destroyed every time you come up with a new “transition.”]

“If Iran doesn’t get rid of nuclear facilities, we will tear them down ourselves.”
Rick Santorum, candidate for US Dictator [Let's see you lead the way, Ricky.]

“I will provide all available intelligence to the Israeli government, ensure that they have the equipment necessary, and reassure them, that if an Israeli prime minister decides that he has to avoid the threat of a second Holocaust through pre-emptive measures, that I would require no advance notice.”
Newt Gingrich, outlining his actions as future US Murderer-in-Chief

“Amazingly, some people refuse to acknowledge that Iran’s goal is to develop nuclear weapons. You see, Iran claims that it’s enriching uranium to develop medical research. Yeah, right.
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then what is it? That’s right, it’s a duck. But this duck is a nuclear duck and it’s time the world started calling a duck a duck.
A nuclear-armed Iran would dramatically increase terrorism by giving terrorists a nuclear umbrella. That means that Iran’s terror proxies like Hezbollah, Hamas will be emboldened to attack America, Israel, and others because they will be backed by a power with atomic weapons.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, spewing his Zionist nonsense

“The reduction in the number of pregnancies compensates for the cost of contraception.”
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, proclaiming that the new requirement that all health insurance plans cover sterilizations and contraceptives will be good for employers and health insurance companies because it will mean less births.

“Since the national attention is on birth control, here's my idea: If we want to fight poverty, reduce violent crime and bring down our embarrassing drop-out rate, we should swap contraceptives for fluoride in Michigan's drinking water."
Nolan Finley, The Detroit News

“Again, our goal would be to seek international permission and we would come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this. Whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress, I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, when asked whether the Obama regime can act without Congress to initiate a no-fly zone in Syria, without Congressional approval
