About Me

My photo
I'm a simple man, not a simpleton. The worst thing any of our leaders can do is to get those two things confused. I'm a warrior for those things I believe in. I stand up for my friends, family, God, and country. All I truly want is for the government to stay as far out of my life as I can get it. Oh and just in case you haven't guessed it; I'm conservative in my bones.

Red Flags, Flashing Lights, Alarms, Alarms, Alarms

Folks I don't know if you are as concerned about the reduction of freedoms that have been taking place in America as I am. Likewise, I don't know whether you've connected the dots, seen the patterns, or however you want to say it concerning the "shadow government" that has taken roots in our country and how it is poised to take away liberty completely under the guise of "security", but if you haven't I envite you to visit/re-visit my post on this topic called "The Great Conspiracy".

Now if you don't mind, I'd like to add another piece to the puzzle, if I may. In "The great Conspiracy" I asked you to see our government in, quite possibly, a new way. To look at the long term policies and plans that have taken shape, by design, to erase the Liberties and Freedoms that we enjoy and replace it with a totalitarian regime. I showed you what tools were in place to accomplish that aim, as well as a list of things that could set it off.

There were those that I spoke to on the phone and in email, as well as a few commentors that claimed I was over reacting. Some, I decided to not even post as they really didn't add anything to the discussion. Others claimed that the military would never assist in such an endeavor so there would be no way for the government to pull it off. My response to that is two-fold, there have always been those in the military that see themselves as servants of the President and their chain of command. They MUST follow lawful orders. A takeover of the country laid out as it was by law and executive order is "legal" therefore many in the military WILL follow those orders. Others will do so because they are liberal in thier thinking and believe as other leftists do. But even if you believe that the military will be degraded in their ability to supress the population of America, keep in mind that Barry is planning a "civilian security force" that is "just as well funded" and "just as powerful" as the military.

Which brings me around to the real topic of today's post. Thanks to my friends at Radarsite for posting this video. It is, in my never to be humble opinion, the next phase in the government's plans. The creation of Barry's "civilian security force" is taking shape.

Obama Cult

People have poo poo'd me in the past when I say that Barry's followers have a cult like belief in him and will follow him in cult-like fashion. People haven't wanted to see what his followers are willing to do to fulfill his will. I've said that they will follow him regardless of the personal cost and in response I've been called a racist and delusional.

Okay. So, if so, I wish someone would please explain this video, where he is being prayed to by his followers.




Ok, I'll play devil's advocate for just a second and say maybe they are just spoofing God, either way, this is one creepy video and shows the moral breakdown of Barry and his followers. In fact, acording to breitbart.com, the woman who leads the prayer (the one in priest's robes) works in the whitehouse.

An Objective View of Tea Party "Racism"

I gotta give the kudos for this from my friends at geeeeeZ! This guy was their find, but I'm shamelessly stealing a juicy piece of Truth.


Like The Boyscouts, Be Prepared: Survive What's Coming

Good morning folks. Look, it's no secret, if you've been to my site more than once or twice, that I believe that there is a fight brewing in this nation. It will be a fight between those that love their liberty and those that wish to impose government rule on everything we do. It will be a fight based on radical differences in ideology that are not or should not be compromised.

This could be the first real civil war that our nation has seen. The unpleasantness of the 1860's was not a civil war, by definition. The fight that is coming, will truly be just that. So, aside from going out and getting weapons training, there are other things that you can, and indeed, must do if you are going to survive. The first and best way is to learn to defend yourself.

Here is a video I recently found that will give some good ideas. The reason that I'm putting these on here is because of the potentially brutal responses to a dangerous situation. The person that attacks you will not be merciful, respond in kind.

A caveat: This is just one method, the methods shown have potential flaws, as do all forms of self defense. Think of ways that your opponent might try to counter these moves and adapt accordingly. Also, if you don't feel that these are right for you, please feel free to find other alternatives. But find them and learn them. Practice them often. Only by practicing with a sparring partner can these lessons be made instinctive. Watching something like this once and then doing nothing with it, will profit you nothing. Enjoy.

A Tribute To A Lovely And Rising Star In Internet Journalism

I've been trying hard to find a video that showcased Hannah Giles in a tasteful light, but also shows how much we old men have lost out on. The moment some man puts a ring on her finger, will be a very sad day for all eligible bachelors.

Brave, beautiful, smart, and most importantly, principled. What more could any man want? She's done a lot to hamstring a corrupt wing of the D.C. machine.

Thanks lass!


My Lapse In Judgement: Pat Dollard

Generally speaking, I like to think of myself as a reasonable judge of character. Look back on my posts over the last year concerning our alleged President, and you will see that I've never missed the mark by far about him. However, this past 9 months or so, I've been guilty of a glaring misjudgement concerning an up and coming political movement. ACCDF. First, let me say this, 99% of the people that are in ACCDF are true patriots. They are from every walk of life and every nationality. The things that they all have in common is a genuine love for their country and a genuine fear that all that they hold dear is being destroyed by the radical revolutionaries in power.


"[A] good moral character is the first essential in a man..." --George Washington

Here is where my lapse in judgement comes in to play. I disregarded my still soft voice in regards to Pat Dollard himself. I went to his website (I forget now how I was referred there) and listened to his Internet broadcast. He was crude and vulgar and dropped expletives like rain water from a drain spout. I put that aside as I read his self-bio on his site. I figured it was just part of what he picked up while he was embedded with the Marines. Later, I found out that it was always this way with him. By then I had met others from ACCDF and found many of like mind. Also, Pat offered me a position on Patdollard.com (I won't provide active links to his site, sorry) as a salaried contributor.

Well, as a small town blogger, I was amazed, and I admit, flattered at the offer to be part of his website. His site gets thousands of hits a week (due mostly to his unfinished pro-military documentary) and I saw an opportunity to broaden my readership base. Unfortunately for me, and for those that have come here and (may) respect my views, I didn't do my due diligence before agreeing to work with Pat Dollard.

It didn't take long for me to find character flaws in Pat Dollard that I couldn't ignore. Soon after I joined his organization, he dropped off the radar completely for weeks at a time. No communication, no nothing. Then he comes back with a very vague story and picks up like nothing ever happened. This happened again this August. Only this time, not only did he disappear, we (accdf.com and patdollard.com) were both shut down for 3 days, and no one could reach him. Also, he had stopped paying me for my time that I had put in. He had offered to pay me $300. per week to work on the site, and at first all was going well. Then, he payed me $100 early on my second check and only gave promises in lieu of payment for the remainder of that and the two weeks following. That is when I stopped updating or writing for Pat. To this day, he has not paid me the $800 that he owed me before I stopped updating the site.

Recently, there has been a shake up in his ACCDF organization. Some of his leadership sent an email out to other state leaders and to Pat about the inaction of ACCDF and tried to offer ways to make it (ACCDF) work more efficiently. Long story short, it flew like a lead balloon and several of his leaders were put out of the organization. Granted, the toys belong to pat so he can kick you out of his sandbox if you don't play like he wants, but it furthered my belief that something was wrong with Pat's character on the most basic level.

So far, everything I've told you has been anecdotal at best. But just a few minutes ago, I was given a link to a Vanity Fair article that re-enforces my position on Pat and his intentions. He, unlike the rank and file of ACCDF, is not motivated by some overwhelming sense of honor and obligation where our Republic is concerned. Rather, he is obsessed with being back on top and running the show. To be a mover and shaker and to compete with his "best friend" Andrew Breitbart, of Breitbart.com. So far, the only thing that seems to be getting in the way is his own self-destructive personality flaws.

Read this for yourself, it's long, very long, but you'll have a very in depth look at what and who Pat Dollard really is. The title is "Rogue Agent: Pat's War On Hollywood" and I don't think there's a better bio of him or a more revealing look at the personality of a megalomaniacal manic-depressive than this article.

Read it all and then tell me if you think that patdollard.com or accdf.com have any useful future ahead of them.

Calling All The Clans Together

This is quite possibly one of the best videos I've seen from the 9/12 march on D.C.. And yet another reason to be proud of our stand against the tyranny of our government.

Enjoy.

A Blogger's Call To Arms

Last year, when I started getting serious about blogging and writing about the news, a point that I've always known at some level came crashing home to me. It was lengths and depths that the corrupt media will go to push the most radical of socialist agendas. They malign, distort, and try to destroy any media that comes against them.

Many times, i've talked with other bloggers and had them share with me their frustration at the inability that we conservative bloggers or even citizens that don't blog have in getting news with an honest and purposeful showing of the reality behind the prepackaged news.

There are several alternative news sites out there, such as Breitbart.com and PJTV.com. These are very good, but I think we need something else. What i'm looking to create, with the help of you my blogging friends, is a site, a little different than the others.

I want hard hitting news told from the true conservative's point of view. The honest to God unmitigated truth, related with the point of view of how it would combine with a Founding Father-type world view. I would also like writers that can do satire and humor, also from a conservative point of view. I want someplace that will draw fellow patriots for education, edification, and Entertainment.

I have been to and frequent many of my fellow blogger's sites, and I see every day the original takes and points of view from so many of my fellow patriots. Points of view and opinions or analysis that comes from a direction that I hadn't considered. Also, many of the best of you have sources of news and information that I have not had the time to find and utilize. Also, it would be hard for me to have time to find all the news and report on it myself. As it is for all of you.

So, here's my call to arms. In order to convince the undecide which is the correct path back to greatness for our country, we must win our fellow Americans back to the Truth. This requires us to fight propaganda with propaganda. The difference being the site that I envision will be dedicated to the truth and to our nation's history of Freedom and Liberty, granted by God, and affirmed through the Declaration of Independance and the Constitution of the united states.

So, I would like for those that are interested in joining such an endeavor to contact me. You can either contact me here, or in the off chance you'd like to remain confidential, my email is greywolfe226@gmail.com. I need folks that have a love for this country and a desire to push their blogs to the next level. To educate and edify more people than we can reach on our own.

I need Satirists, and Analysts. Common sense writers, and humorists. If you have a good idea or suggestion, I'm all ears. I want every piece of good advice that I can get.

This is a war, my friends. The Administration has declared war upon our way of life. In order to win, we must make sure that the truth continues to be told in places that the other forms of Alternative media are not seen. The larger we spread this idea, the more people we reach, the better this site can be.

The Conservative Underground News And Comment can be a great thing, but I cannot do all of it myself. Join me if you will. Advise me if you won't. I look forward to talking to you all.

Texas Governor Sends Rangers To Mexico Border


From MSNBC


HOUSTON - Special teams of Texas Rangers will be deployed to the Texas-Mexico border to deal with increasing violence because the federal government has failed to address growing problems there, Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday.

"It is an expansive effort with the Rangers playing a more high-profile role than they've ever played before," Perry said of the Department of Public Safety's elite investigative unit.

The forces, dubbed "Ranger recon" teams, are the latest effort "to fill the gap that's been left by the federal government's ongoing failure to adequately secure our international border with Mexico," he said.

The governor early this year asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for 1,000 National Guard troops and renewed his call last month in a letter to President Barack Obama. The request is bogged down over who will pay for the troops and how they will be deployed.

'Boots on the ground'
Perry's announcement Thursday comes amid increasing border violence, particularly in El Paso, mostly involving people with ties to Mexican drug gangs.

"They'll be deployed to high-traffic, high-crime areas along the border," he said. "They'll give us boots on the ground, put people in these hot spots no matter what or where they may exist."

Perry said the effort also would focus on remote areas where farmers and ranchers have complained of being overrun by smugglers and gangs from Mexico in numbers that also overwhelm local law enforcement and border patrol officers.

"Washington is shortchanging them, not giving them the support they need," Perry said. "As a result, we're having to dedicate our resources to deal with the challenges we have along the Texas-Mexico border and ensuing issues that porous border has created all across state of Texas."

He said the state would pick up the tab of $110 million, allocated by the Legislature in the past two sessions.

Perry's announcement drew immediate criticism from U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is running against the two-term incumbent in the March GOP primary.

"Today's announcement is yet another empty election-year promise from Rick Perry on border security," Hutchison spokesman Joe Pounder said.

The Day America Shouted: And The Rulers Were Deaf


All day, I flipped from Fox News to MSNBC and ABC and then over to CNN and back again. I must admit that I will always regret not being able to attend that protest rally. The reasons for which I may go into at length, at some point in the future. But this day is not about my problems. Rather it is about the incredible spectacle in Washington D.C. today.
I was overjoyed at the pictures coming from Fox News and the positive note the coverage was using to pass the word. At the same time, I must admit that the other networks didn't really disappoint either. I flipped over to MSNBC just in time to hear the info-babe ask the reporter on site if there had been any rowdiness that resulted in any arrests. He was very honest in his reporting despite the info-babes attempts to lead the story down a false trail. He maintained that it was spirited but lawful. Even jubilant at times.
I will say that when CNN tried to cover the march and try to tie in Joe Wilson she was drowned out with chants of "Tell The Truth" and "Glenn Beck" and "No More Lies". At the very end she asks the crowd their opinion of Rep. Wilson and got a thunderous approval in return. Apparently, the coverage that CNN has given tea party protesters in the past has left a lasting bad taste in their mouths.
The fact that so many folks from every walk of life took time and money out from their busy life to gather and march with the intention of taking our nation back says a lot for the level of commitment present in America today. That is the good news. I am, unfortunately, here to post the truth that is starting to come to light about the affect that this march that totaled anywhere from 1.7 to 2 million people is actually having on our government.
First, I think it is important to note that the alleged president took the opportunity to get as far away from D.C. as possible to hold his own taxpayer funded event to attempt to counter the D.C. protest march. And from the parts of it that I watched, put himself in dead on opposition to everything the people at that march was saying.

9/11 My Tribute



















This morning I am watching Fox News' coverage of the horrid attacks that we survived on Sept. 11, 2001. I am trying to write this through tear filled eyes as I listen to them recount the names of the casualties of the World Trade Center attack. Every year, I've tried very hard to remember this day, to never make it just another day. Once again, I will try to do honor to those that died and those that willingly sacrificed themselves in a Pennsilvania field to keep the terrorists from succeeding in another attack. God bless those patriotic warriors that retook flight 93 and crashed it in an open field instead of the Whitehouse as was thought to be the planned target.





As I relive in my mind the thoughts and emotions that I felt, I am forced to look at the state of America and the changes that have taken place in our society since that day. I am trying very hard to keep my anger in check for those that have willingly forgotten these sacrifices. We must always be mindful that we have enemies that hate us and want to attack us for no other reason than that we live a life that they can only dream of. They harbor venom and bile in their hearts and will strike out at us. These must be hunted, they must be found, confronted, and finally destroyed. We must be true to those that have gone before and given their all.

I would like to bring it home to you, my friends that we must renew our resolve to destroy those that would mean us harm. We must resolve ourselves to support those troops and members of our intelligence community that have kept us from further attacks over the last 8 years. We owe them a debt that we cannot repay. Let us not take them for granted and let us not persecute those who have done that which had to be done to keep us from more death here and abroad.


God bless you my countrymen. God keep you and make your resolve fast. Our vigil is not done, and our fight goes on. God Bless those that have gone before, both victim and warrior. Your sacrifices are not in vain. We WILL remember.

Yet Another Reason I Love Sarah Palin

Here's Sarah Palin's response to President Obama's speech from her Facebook page.
Hat tip to Newsbusters.org for the full text.


"After all the rhetoric is put aside, one principle ran through President Obama’s speech tonight: that increased government involvement in health care can solve its problems.

Many Americans fundamentally disagree with this idea. We know from long experience that the creation of a massive new bureaucracy will not provide us with “more stability and security,” but just the opposite. It's hard to believe the President when he says that this time he and his team of bureaucrats have finally figured out how to do things right if only we’ll take them at their word.

Our objections to the Democrats’ health care proposals are not mere “bickering” or “games.” They are not an attempt to “score short term political points.” And it’s hard to listen to the President lecture us not to use “scare tactics” when in the next breath he says that “more will die” if his proposals do not pass.

In his speech the President directly responded to concerns I’ve raised about unelected bureaucrats being given power to make decisions affecting life or death health care matters. He called these concerns “bogus,” “irresponsible,” and “a lie” -- so much for civility. After all the name-calling, though, what he did not do is respond to the arguments we’ve made, arguments even some of his own supporters have agreed have merit.

In fact, after promising to “make sure that no government bureaucrat .... gets between you and the health care you need,” the President repeated his call for an Independent Medicare Advisory Council -- an unelected, largely unaccountable group of bureaucrats charged with containing Medicare costs. He did not disavow his own statement that such a group, working outside of “normal political channels,” should guide decisions regarding that “huge driver of cost ... the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives....” He did not disavow the statements of his health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, and continuing to pay his salary with taxpayer dollars proves a commitment to his beliefs. The President can keep making unsupported assertions, but until he directly responds to the arguments I’ve made, I’m going to call him out too.

It was heartening to hear the President finally recognize that tort reform is an important part of any solution. But this concession shouldn’t lead us to take our eye off the ball: the Democrats’ proposals will not reduce costs, and they will not deliver better health care. It’s this kind of “healthy skepticism of government” that truly reflects a “concern and regard for the plight of others.” We can’t wait to hear the details on that; we look forward to working with you on tort reform.

Finally, President Obama delivered an offhand applause line tonight about the cost of the War on Terror. As we approach the anniversary of the September 11th attacks and honor those who died that day and those who have died since in the War on Terror, in order to secure our freedoms, we need to remember their sacrifices and not demonize them as having had too high a price tag.

Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people. Forcing a conclusion in order to claim a “victory” is not healthy for our country. We hear you say government isn’t always the answer; now hear us -- that’s what we’ve been saying all along.

- Sarah Palin"

Barry's Speech To Congress: Here's the 'I Told You So'

I wasn't home for the live airing of Barry's speech so I had to wait until my wife and children went to sleep so that they wouldn't drown out the speech with loud and long suffering sighs and fingernail tapping. My family is probably the most apolitical group that one could ever hope to find. They nearly break out in hives when I sign on to my blogger account. So I waited until the time was right and was rewarded for my patience with one of the largest vindications for my cynical point of view towards Congress and this Usurper possible.

A point or two about Barry. He never actually comes out and lies directly. For instance, when he starts talking up the points for his socialized health care plan, he states "nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have." And from what I understand of the options currently on the table, he is technically correct. Except for the law of unintended consequences. Or in this case, wholly intended but entirely hidden from view. You see, as he stated later, public companies CAN NOT compete with a Socialist option, because it will have the financial backing of the Federal tax base. Even if you want to give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he has genuinely good intentions to follow through with his promise to not raise the deficit, the plan he has to pay for this thing, is going to cause almost as much trouble.

In addition to taxing businesses to help pay for this, he mentioned the tax breaks for the wealthy from the last administration twice. At one point he says, "Part of the reason I faced a trillion dollar deficit when I walked in the door of the White House is because too many initiatives over the last decade were not paid for – from the Iraq War to tax breaks for the wealthy. I will not make that same mistake with health care. This is an open admission that he intends to jack up the tax rate on those Americans that are the most productive. Keep in mind that most small businesses pay taxes on individual tax rates. He raises taxes and it will slam the job producers.

At another place in the speech he makes a very chilling set of statements. "...under my plan, individuals will be required to carry basic health insurance – just as most states require you to carry auto insurance. Likewise, businesses will be required to either offer their workers health care, or chip in to help cover the cost of their workers."

I found this chilling because it is yet one more way that government has found to insinuate itself into our lives. One more area where freedom and self reliance is eroded. How much of this is America going to take? I've been telling anyone that will sit still long enough to listen that they were going to ram this down our throats. Looks like I was right. Here it comes.

Barry and his Statists have complete bastardised the entire meaning of our Constitution and its limitations. They see the only limits to Federal power as the limits of their own social enginuity. Barry quoted Dead Ted's letter saying that this reform was a matter of "social justice". Leftist speak for wealth redistribution. God help us, when this goes through, we're done. Our economy will not bear up to the government dipping its fingers into 1/5th of the national economy without tanking.

Wake up America! This IS a call to arms. It's time and past time that we Americans made ourselves ready for the fight that is on the horizen. As I have stated time and time again, when a people's voice is suppressed, they must then turn to demonstrations. If those fail, they then have to turn to Civil Disobedience. From there it will get bloody.

We are at the point where civil disobedience is indeed called for. Many friends are going to go to D.C. for a march on the capitol. Damn I wish I could go, but its not to be. The groups that are there should commit to a mass show of civil disobedience. If their are indeed thousands that show up there, then laying a sit in siege to the capitol is something that is very possible and would have good effect.

The best possible outcome is that Congress might (although I doubt it) get the idea and turn from this course. The more likely outcome would be that the Capitol Police would end up shooting someone and thereby escalating this to the last level. It is coming folks. There will be blood. The Leftists have ensured it by their usurpation of the Constitutional powers set aside for the states and the people.

Setting Barry Straight, Dragnet Style

Hat tip to Oliver and Ken at The Liberal Lie, The Conservative Truth.

Departure from ACTIVE and Patdollard.com

Effective immediately, I am resigning my place as a poster at Patdollard.com. This is due to conflicts between me and Mr. Dollard over non-communications and his repeated disappearances without letting those that serve under him know what is going on for days at a time. That goes for pd.com and for the leadership at ACTIVE also.

He disappears and there is no contact for days at a time. This was most notable last weekend when both pd.com and accdf.com went down to what we assumed was a DOS attack.

In addition to these episodes, there have been issues with payroll since my second week with the site. Payroll was not met and I and at least 2 others have received promises that the "check is in the mail" for the last 2 weeks in lieu of actual cash. I have given him the opportunity to make good on his promises and all he's done is let me down and lie again.

The loss in trust is one that would have been difficult for him to repair if he had made amends last week and made arrangements for immediate payment. But as he instead lied to me about the payment being on it's way, I am forced to conclude that my good will as well as my well being is of little or no consequence to Mr. Dollard. Therefore, I am also resigning my position as the Oklahoma President for Active effective on the 12th of this month.

For those that have signed up or thought of signing up do to my promotion on this site, I do not ask that you leave. But I do ask that, as with all associations, you make damn sure that the people you are associated with are above reproach and have good character.


Thank you and God bless you. And as always, Keep your powder dry.

Sen. Inhoffe Blasts Barry's Anti-American Message

I'll be honest with you, I detest 99% of everything that comes from the Tulsa World. They have proven themselves to be very little more than Leftist Political Hacks who very nearly always spin events to favor the Socialists that have tried to run Tulsa into the ground. However, on this one article, they at least stuck to the facts. Good job Tulsa World.

And an even better round of applause for Oklahoma's Senator Inhoffe. You get it, thanks.

From the Tulsa World.

GROVE — Right-thinking Americans can only hope the country will survive the next 16 months of the Obama administration until Republicans can regain control of Congress, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe said Wednesday.
“I never dreamed I would see an administration try to disavow all the things that have made this country different from all others,” Inhofe told more than 300 people at a town hall meeting in the Grove Community Center.

“I have never seen so many things happening at one time so disheartening to America.” Inhofe found a highly receptive audience. Many wore T-shirts of a local organization called Get America Back. Its Web site promises “a plan to eliminate the socialist government and return Americas (sic) freedoms.”

The “plan” is a link to a YouTube video by Lloyd Marcus, a Florida artist and singer making the circuit of anti-Obama “Tea Party” rallies.

Wednesday’s audience was similar to those at town hall meetings throughout northeastern Oklahoma in recent weeks. Concerns centered on the administration and Democratic-controlled Congress.

Inhofe gave his constituents plenty to worry about.

“Every institution that has made this country the greatest nation in the world is under attack,” he said at the end of the 75-minute session.

During those 75 minutes, Inhofe said President Barack Obama is disarming the military, is destroying everything good about America and is determined to turn foreign terrorists loose on U.S. soil.

The good news, he said, is that he does not think the Democratic leadership can push through

health-care reform or the more controversial parts of its energy bill.
He also said he continues to be proven correct in his claim that global climate change is a hoax.

“More and more, with each month that goes by, more scientists agree with me,” he said. “We are winning.”

Inhofe opened by saying the noisy debate over health care has caused Americans to overlook other important issues, including climate change and energy policy.

He is also alarmed, he said, by the proposed closing of the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The Obama administration wants to shutter the camp because of its association with torture.

Inhofe said: “There has never been a case of torture there. The people there are treated better than in the federal prisons.”

He continued, “I don’t know why President Obama is obsessed with turning terrorists loose in America.”

The administration says it wants to bring 60 to 80 prisoners to the U.S. for trial. Some Republicans have said those acquitted could be released in the U.S., but authorities say they would be deported as foreign nationals.

Inhofe’s third concern, he said, is that “Barack Obama is disarming America.” He conceded that Obama requested more military spending, but he criticized the elimination of several weapons systems, including the F-22 fighter.

Obama, at the urging of Defense Secretary Robert Gates, also scrapped one of Inhofe’s pet projects, a cannon that was to be assembled at Elgin in southwestern Oklahoma.

Gates, a holdover from the Bush administration, advocated abandoning high-tech systems such as the cannon and the F-22 for cheaper, more reliable weapons.

“Those of you who think like I do,” Inhofe said, “hope this country can hang on another 16 months.”
