Domestic Cold War
Somehow, when it is the agreements the U.S. Government officials are counting on, words are important, they have definitions and purpose. It is amusing to watch them invoke every argument of the Constitutionalists to justify whatever actions they might have to take in the Ukrainian crisis.
Is Hillary Clinton talking about the issue of gun confiscation in Connecticut?
“Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the 30s,” Clinton said.
No, she was talking about Russia using Russian citizens in Crimea as an excuse to enter the territory, but the rhetoric the leftists use sound eerily familiar to that used by Constitutionalists to put their point across. When American citizens invoke this rhetoric, however, the government(s) have a way of dismissing it.
John Kerry recently invoked the Helsinki Final Act as justification for the United States to seek sanctions against Russia. Is he trying to say that a document means something? Is he using the violation of an agreement as a pretext to action? This can’t be, not from an Administration that finds no agreement, or simple piece of paper like the Constitution to have any meaning whatsoever.
I’m not sure how an ally of the United States can hang their hat on anything the Obama Administration promises. Not that this Administration is any different from any other in that respect. There is no legitimate government in the United States. Any government that frees itself from the bondage of law is no longer a government, but an occupying force.
The American patriot can just as legitimately claim that whatever actions he takes is in defense of the original agreement: the Constitution.
Make no mistake, America has been occupied by hostile forces from within. This is a conclusion that many Americans feel deep in their bones, without official declarations to the fact, or the honesty of Vladimir Putin.
As far as Ukraine goes, it is easy to see that due to the Budapest Memorandum the United States is obligated to come to its defense, not because the memorandum demands it, but out of a sense of honor for the intent of the agreement. I doubt that this will actually happen, because we are cursed with an Administration who sees no agreement through any other lens than one of a self-serving nature.
If Obama thought he could divert attention from the failure of Obamacare ahead of the 2014 elections, which might save him the Senate, he would put boots on the ground. If playing peace-maker helps his image he will do that, regardless of the blood spilled not only in Ukraine, but anywhere else Putin seeks to reassert authority. Regardless of the tack that Obama finally takes, it will be heralded as the greatest bit of statesmanship in history by the propagandist media.

Would someone please ask this waste of flesh why he has not held Lois Lerner in contempt of congress, and why he has not formed a special prosecutor in the Benghazi?
The American people have had it!
This is from I’m 41.
They will come in handy whenever someone mentions “Hillary Clinton 2016.”

The Democrats are continuously trying to creep deeper into our wallets, creep deeper into our privacy–creeping and creeping, deeper under the false justification and so-called good intentions of being our brothers keeper.
I always call them the Useless Nations. Because they really are useless so the USA and the world. Unless you are muslim and/or anti-Israel.
The Demise of the U.N.
The U.N.’s performance in Crimea is only the latest in a series of debacles.
Imagine the scene.
Secretary of State Kerry is talking with passers-by on a Ukrainian city street.
Suddenly, he’s accosted by armed men. Taking refuge in a café, he calls for help. Outside, the group of Russian irregulars waits menacingly. “Leave Crimea or else,” they say. Lacking any security detail, Kerry begs a British news crew to wait with him. Hopefully, he reasons, their journalistic credentials will protect him.
But rescue doesn’t come. Reluctantly, Kerry is forced to leave Ukraine, and his mission ends in unequivocal failure.
That’s what just happened last Wednesday — only not to John Kerry. Instead, the victim was his U.N. opposite number, Robert Serry.
Sure, had Kerry been the target, the Diplomatic Security Service would probably have ruined the mob’s day. But that’s beside the point. What really matters here is what this incident tells us about the U.N. in the 21st century.
In this one incident, we’ve seen how the world’s greatest global institution can be rendered impotent by a small group of thugs possessing big ambitions. More than that, Serry’s café siege has given a face to the U.N.’s response in Ukraine.

Feel good story for cat and dog lovers!
Judy Guth doesn’t care if you have great references, pay your rent on time, or are as quiet as a mouse.
Without a dog or cat, you’re not getting one of her cherished apartments that come with new carpeting — in lieu of a security deposit — for an extra $100 a month.
When it’s paid off — usually in about a year — the carpeting is yours. If you decide to move, which few people do, you can take it with you. Nobody ever has, though.
Most of Judy’s tenants in her 12-unit apartment house have lived there over a decade — a few more than two. If a pet dies, she takes the tenant to the animal shelter to adopt a new one. It’s either that or move.
No pet, no apartment. Those are the ground rules at Judy’s place.
“This is the first I’ve heard of a landlord renting to only people with pets,” says Terri Shea, operations manager of the 3,000-member Apartment Association of Southern California Cities, based in Long Beach.
People have accused her of discrimination, and maybe she is biased, Judy says. But she doesn’t care.
“My experience has told me you get people with a lot of love in their hearts when you get pet owners,” she says.
A spokesperson for the L.A. City Attorney’s Office says there is nothing in the law that prohibits someone from refusing to rent to people with or without pets.
The Federal Fair Housing Act makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, familial status, and disability, but pets are given a pass.
Mary Rickettshas lived at Judy’s place for almost 25 years. Sadie, a shepherd mix mutt she bailed out of the shelter, is her second pet since she moved into this quiet, well-kept, neighborhood of single-family homes and nicely landscaped apartment buildings in North Hollywood.
Mary lived in one of the large, one-bedroom apartments upstairs that now rent to new tenants for $1,200 a month (two-bedroom’s go for $1,500), but Judy noticed her having trouble getting up the steps one day.
The next week she invited Mary to lunch and a movie, then they stretched it to dinner and a long dessert. Judy was stalling for time.
While they were gone, Jerry Schiess, whose been managing the building for nearly 12 years, got a couple of guys to help him move all of Mary’s furniture and personal belongings to a newly refurbished apartment on the ground floor with a little patio area.
“How many landlords would do something like that for one of their tenants?” she asks. “She’s a very unique woman.”
Maybe, Judy says, but it’s really a no-brainer. More landlords should wise up about pets, she says. If you want people with a lot of love in their heart, who pay their rent on time and seldom move, make sure they’re carrying a leash or bag of cat litter under their arm.
“I’ve talked to other rental property owners about it, but they just laugh,” she says. “They’re stupid. The only vacancies I’ve had are when people had to move because the economy forced them out of state for a job.
“Within a day or two, there’s a new dog or cat moving in. I can’t remember all the people, but I can remember their pets.”
When I first met Judy 11 years ago, she was sharing an apartment with her German shepherd, Jezebel, a rescue. He’s since died and her new roommate is an Australian miniature terrier she’s named “I Love Sushi.”
“He’s my man,” says the 84-year-old, Hungarian-born, widow, and extremely sharp owner of the apartment building at 5053 Cartwright Ave. that she bought 40 years ago for $260,000. A couple of weeks ago she got an offer for more than $2 million.
She started her “pets-only” policy shortly after she bought the place and saw one of her tenants — a retired school teacher — hiding her cat because she thought the new owner would evict her. Judy told her not to worry.
“The next time I walked by her apartment, her cat was sitting in the window sunning itself. It wasn’t hiding anymore,” she says.
Each tenant is allowed one or two dogs of any size (she’s had Great Danes), but they must be vaccinated, and wear an up-to-date ID tag. Incessant barking or bad behavior is prohibited. They actually “interview” the dog before the person to check for that.
Dogs have to be on a leash when they are outside the apartment. As many as three cats are allowed, and they must be neutered.
Every day, Schiess, the apartment house manager, gets a few phone calls from people asking if anyone’s planning to move soon? He has to tell them, “sorry, no.”
Schiess owns a shepherd-mix named Shadow who was rescued after Hurricane Katrina, and wound up in an L.A. animal shelter. The first time they met, Shadow bit him.
“I thought to myself I better take this dog because nobody else will. He’s changed a lot since then. A little love goes a long way around here.”
