Political Correctness Obliterates Common Sense – Part 2

How have we gotten to the point where Drafting Our Daughters is actually a possibility? Perhaps the answer lies in the fact that Barack Obama suffers no consequences for his lawless actions.
Know Your Enemy
The Art of War, written over twenty six hundred years ago states, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Obama’s extremist agenda, ruthlessness ideology and tactics are rooted in his playbook - Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky. A guidebook for radicals, it espouses principles for revolution with insidious, unscrupulous tactics designed to overwhelm their unsuspecting targets. Alinsky’s dedicating this work to Lucifer further reveals the extent of his morally bankrupt ploys. An equally essential read is Rules for Radicals Defeated by Jeff Hudspeth. An informative read with a brilliant analysis of Alinsky’s 13 Rules, it also includes nineteen rules for defeating them. Mr. Hudspeth states that we must learn their tactics well so we can defeat them without becoming them. The days of bipartisanship with an objective of arriving at beneficial constitutionally correct solutions are long gone. Political brinkmanship is now required to achieve that end.
Although Obama will not utter the phrase, Radical Islamic Jihadist Terrorists, we know they are the enemy. Have we become so desensitized to their debauchery such as beheadings, burning victims alive and drownings in cages, that we propose to send our daughters into combat against these personifications of pure evil? The Koran 4:34 states: “Allah has made men superior to women. Virtuous women are obedient. As for women you fear will rebel, admonish them first, and send them to another bed, and then beat them.” Daniel Greenfield reported in August, 2014, the following: “When ISIS seized Mosul in June, 2014...they held captured women as sex slaves. Survivors who escaped … faced two fates: those who converted to Islam were sold as brides to Islamist fighters, those who did not faced daily rape and slow death.” If one of our daughters who is conscripted into combat suffers the same fate will we be told to “Move on. Just get over it?”
Rules for Radicals Rule #5
Of Alinsky’s Rules, Rule #5 is “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” It is the left’s most used and overworked tactic. Liberals use ridicule when they are devoid of facts on which to base their arguments. Disproving a negative is very difficult. Their go-to move is branding Conservatives as racist. The fear of being called racist for criticizing the “First African American President” has literally paralyzed GOP criticism of our Imperial President. Alinsky’s intent is to infuriate the opposition, who then react to the attacker’s advantage.
Obama’s Violation of The Constitution & Federal Law
This very rational concern has given Obama a free pass on scandals such as selling weapons to Mexican drug lords, illegally targeting conservative groups via the IRS, secretly obtaining phone records from Associated Press journalists, lying about the Benghazi attack, lying about the cost of Obamacare and lying that people could keep their insurance - just to name a few. Most glaring has been Congress’ submission to Obama in the recent Omnibus Spending Bill. This bill adds $80 billion dollars in overall spending over two years, with our total debt now approaching $19 trillion. Spending programs to “Fundamentally Transform America” were left intact. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) which has granted 700,000 illegal alien permits and the ability to receive federal entitlement programs was approved. In addition, sanctuary city funds, all refugee program funds, illegal alien resettlement funds, release of criminal alien funds and tax credits for illegal aliens are funded.
Rules for Radicals #1
Alinsky’s Rule #1 states, “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.” The Iran Nuclear Agreement in reality was a treaty, which comes under and is determined by Senate authority. Obama designated it as an agreement. He then submitted his Iran Nuclear agreement to the United Nations Security Council which unanimously endorsed it on the same day Congress’ 60-day review period was to begin. This preceded Congress’ opportunity to hold hearings and debates. The Republican Senate leadership surrendered their rightful authority as they countered with The Corker Amendment (aka Iran Nuclear Agreement Act of 2015). Now instead of voting on it as a treaty, which would have required a supermajority approval by two-thirds of the Senate or through the legislative process, they voted on it as an agreement. The agreement only required a simple majority, which carried the vote. With these notches on Obama’s gun belt, we are experiencing the cascade of consequences of Rules for Radicals #10.
Rules for Radicals #10
Alinsky’s Rule #10 states: "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure on the opposition.” The driving force of the Alinsky model is in the action, specifically in guiding the action in such a way that you cause your “enemy to react rather than act.” This unceasing pressure results in reactions from the opposition. The action is in the reaction but that action is itself the consequence of reaction to the reaction. Constant pressure sustains action. Pressure is their key, applied variably and unceasingly that ultimately goads your enemy to lose clarity of thought, and react in a way that you can exploit to defeat them.” “Political Correctness Obliterates Common Sense -Part 1”documented the progression from Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage, removal of gender based requirements for military service, confirmation of the first openly gay Secretary of the Army, Department of Justice directive to allow biological boys identifying themselves as female unfettered access to girls’ lockers, showers, and bathrooms or lose federal education funding, to the U.S. Military dropping its policy of treating male and female troops according to their biology. This constant pressure has set off a chain reaction that has led to the Drafting Our Daughters argument. The opposition has gained an advantage that should have been a slam dunk for Conservatives. Fortunately there is finally a glimmer of hope.
Uncommon Common Sense from the Senate
Senator Ben Sasse has submitted a letter requesting that the provision in the National Defense Authorization Act ( NDAA) that forces young women between the ages of 18 -26 to sign up for the Selective Service and eligible for conscription if Congress reinstates the draft be removed from the NDAA. His logically asserts, “Don’t hinder the military with culture wars.” He sensibly questions: “Why is it that we’re now fighting about drafting our daughters, our sisters, and our mothers when nobody has told us that we need to draft anyone?” His amendment replaces the NDAA’s draft provisions with the following:
I) It says the Senate admits that the draft should be reevaluated, rather than continue ….without scrutiny.
II) It sets a sunset date on the draft for three years … unless Congress acts to say that we have consulted with the generals and we believe it is actually needed.
III) It requires the Secretary of Defense to report to Congress in six months on the merit of a Selective Service. Senator Sasse concludes: “Either they believe the all-volunteer force ….is sufficient …. for the country and they think the draft is...obsolete; or number two, they believe we should be keeping the current draft system; or number three, they believe that the draft needs to be expanded – and why they believe that. But let’s first know that they think the draft is still needed before we fight about who... is going to be drafted.“
Senators Cruz ( R-TX), Lee (R-UT , Inhofe ( R- OK), Lankford (R-OK ), Boozman (R- AR) , Roberts ( R-KS) , and Thume (R-SD) have signed on in support . House Amendment by Rep. Warren Davidson
Rep. Warren Davidson’s amendment, which passed 217-203, utilizes the House’s legitimate power of the purse to prohibit the use of funds to change the Selective Service System registration requirements to force women into the draft. This is much needed momentum to protect our daughters from the draft.
The Hill to Stand and Fight On
If we will not stand and fight on Drafting Our Daughters when will we fight? It is imperative that we support our Senators and Congressmen who have supported these amendments. Thank those who have supported it, continue to back them and lobby those who have not. Our daughters’ futures depend on it.
