The Year That Wasn’t

On this New Year’s Eve, maybe we should take a look at the year that wasn’t which was based on the worst move of the year before and what may lie ahead in 2010..

The “lost” year of 2009 was precipitated by the worst move of 2008, which was the nomination of John McCain. The McCain nomination was the Republican answer to “playing for a tie”, “liberal lite” or “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”.. McCain would have had to deal with the liberal House and Senate and as a “maverick”, he might have ended up bending where he shouldn’t have. There were enough liberals in both Houses for the liberals to continue with their “Target America First” and their “Contract ON America” programs virtually unimpeded..

Thus we were left with a 2009 that had a liberal House, Senate and President. This “perfect progressive storm” has directly led to double-digit unemployment, ridiculous “stimulus” packages, totalitarian takeovers of private enterprise and a wholesale attack upon capitalism that would have made Stalin proud.. Obama likes to childishly say that he has “inherited” all of his woes. He is correct. He has “inherited” them from himself and the other liberal members of Congress who have had control of both Houses since 2006.. The White House, once representative of an America that was tall and proud now has an “occupant” that embarrasses the nation on a daily basis..

This leads us into 2010. The haste with which the liberals have demanded that their pork filled panaceas be enacted tells us that they understand that their “window of opportunity” will close in November of 2010. Their systematic planning for the “payouts and payoffs” from their bogus “stimulus” is intentionally and sarcastically timed to coincide with the midterm election. So for nearly two years, the liberals will intentionally allow those that they claim they are trying to “rescue” to dangle in at best, economic uncertainty.. They have gone from “feeling your pain” to intentionally inflicting it.

That which has preceded 2010 should not be forgotten. The smoke and mirrors of the politics of persecution employed by the “we know what’s best for you” liberals could be brought under control by the taking of just one Senate seat, any additional victories would be the icing on the collectivist cake. Something has to “change”..

In order for the importance of what 2010 will mean to us, we have to understand thoroughly what it is that we have LOST in 2009. Needless to say, your first concrete reminder of what you have lost we come on April 15th of 2010.. This is just another example of the failures of Socialism as a political program. In the hands of the dexterous left, Socialism is nothing more than a political pogrom.. The Obama administration and their enablers in Congress are the only examples we need to show us that we shouldn’t suffer through them any longer than we have to. We know what the liberals did in 2009 and with the leftists, we know what “lies” ahead..

Welcome 2010. Never give in, never give up and never again..

  1. Dear Family,

    A very Happy New Year to each and every member of the NLTZ family.

    Thanks as always,


  2. Be prepared for the Progressive Socialist Depression coming in 2010.
    Since they have already stolen every dime we have, and borrowed every dime every foreign nation (aka accomplice) will loan them, they, the Progressive Socialists, have lined their political piggybanks with OUR money as we head into the 2010 campaign season.
    Now all they need is a “man-caused disaster” in the form of another 1929 Depression.
    Of course, all the while, “Blaming Bush”.
    With all the chips on the Progressive Socialists’ side of the table, and the Conservative people of this nation UNEMPLOYED, where will the GOP or Conservative candidates get their campaign “contributions”?
    How much will you or I be able to contribute to a Conservative, Pro-American, candidate, in 2010, when we are unemployed and counting every penny?
    And the Democratic candidates have already lined their pockets with….OUR MONEY.

    Do you think this is what Joe Biden meant when he said, “…this is working better than we could have ever hoped…”.
    Certainly he wasn’t referring to the economy!

    Don’t tell me you’re willing to “fight” to “take back your country”, if you don’t even own a gun.

    Don’t tell me you’re willing to “fight” to “take back your country”, if you won’t even make a fist.

    What are you going to FIGHT with?

    Go ahead and pray.
    Pray all day long if you can.
    We need prayer.
    But keep in mind, it took 300 years of praying to get those Roman lions to stop munching on Christians.
    If you’re trying to save your childrens’ futures – YOU DON’T HAVE 300 YEARS!

    Say your prayers WHILE you’re cleaning your weapons, and pray…you don’t miss.

    We all know the last words to Patrick Henry’s famous speech…”…give me liberty or give me death”.
    But read the ENTIRE article.
    Read the final paragraph:

    “It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter.
    Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace.
    The war is actually begun!
    The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms!
    Our brethren are already in the field!
    Why stand we here idle?
    What is it that gentlemen wish?
    What would they have?
    Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?
    Forbid it, Almighty God!
    I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

    – Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775, before the Virginia Provincial Convention

    the war drums are beating….
    sit still for just a momemt…and listen…

    “Why stand we here idle?”


  3. Does anyone here think that Obama will create or declare a “event” (could be terrorist or maybe a swine flu-like health scare) a constitutional emergency and therefore have the authority to post pone Nov 2010 elections?

  4. Well said, STITCH!




  6. STITCH,
    Amen and well said.

    One of Mc Clown’s campian themes was that he was “willing to reach across the isle and work with the Dimocrats. Well this past year shows just how willing the Dimocrats were willing to work with the Republicans. Not At All.

  7. This corrupt administration is as slippery as they come. With the MSM running interference for them the majority of the population still has to wake up as to what is happening. How do we expose the media for what it is? If we had honest unbiased reporting I think the noise from our population would be deafening. I just hope that in their overconfidence they play their hand to the point where even the MSM can’t ‘spin’ it away. At least his popularity is falling (but not as fast as it should have).

  8. Tiffany: YES!

    Not only that, but ACORN (the party-recruitment wing of the DNC) registered 400,000 ILLEGAL voters in 2008.
    And that was under BI-PARTISAN supervision.
    Now we only have a Ruling Class (the Progressive Socialists) and the rest of us.
    WHO is going to monitor how many ILLEGAL voters ACORN is going to “register” in 2010??
    ACORN is, at this very moment, printing MILLIONS of fake ballots to stuff in the ballotboxes in November. And WHO is going to stop them??
    You had better register for your Absentee Ballot NOW, or ACORN will.
    And then, Aleekjahwanda will vote for YOU, HERSELF, and as many Mickey Mouses as they have “registered”.

    How long did it take Hitler to abolish the election process once he proclaimed himself Dictator for Life?
    How long did it take Chavez to abolish opposition parties in his “elections”?
    How long will our democracy last, if the DemonRats maintain control of Congress next year, and Obama proclaims himself “Dictator for Life”?

    We can NOT wait.
    Prepare for WAR!

    These fascists will try anything, Tiffany; they are all the more dangerous now that they are beginning to feel cornered. There is a chilling article in the December 28 Weekly Standard with the depressing title of “Resistance is Futile,” by Andrew Stuttaford, a Brit, I think. It recounts the measures taken by the globalists over the years to install a constitution that would govern all the participant countries in the European Union. Despite vigorous public opposition throughout the countries of Europe, votes rejecting this nightmare of a document have been routinely ignored by the EU bureaucrats. They simply decided to reinvent it as, “The Treaty of Lisbon,” and used a series of scare tactics to wear down the opposition among European leadership to bring the “Treaty” to a successful vote. They are now merrily installing the bureaucracy that may well bring the economy of Europe to a standstill. The longstanding Atlantic Alliance will be weakened and is in danger of being completely undermined by this European socialist juggernaut. The elitist, fascist EU leadership will work with the U.S. as long as we baa loudly and meekly agree to their globalist agenda—the real “change” that Obama and his scuzzy band of 60s congressmen and academics are determined to bring about. If we don’t want to end up subservient to a bureaucracy of Europeans with names like Baroness Ashton of Upholland, we have to continue to let the Congress and Obama and his Czars know that they, not we, are delusional.

    Mine may be a pie-in-the-sky attitude, but I think we have an opportunity to hogtie the Congress and thus end the reign of King Barack I in the 2010 elections. Ben (17% approval, down from 65%) Nelson is in panic mode, and Harry Reid should be. The health care bill still has to go through the reconciliation process, which means that Reid/Pelosi have to pull more Nelsons out of the hat. Ben’s current predicament may weaken the will of members of congress to vote against the stated desires of their constituents. Past 2010, my hope is that we can find a person who is not an ABO (anything but Obama) candidate for president. Right now, I’m not certain who that would be.

  10. Damn, Larry: You hit that one out of the park and it’s still rolling, great post. Jim

  11. Hey Larry,
    Good one again, I’m glad that you remind everyone that the liberals/communists have been running the country since 2006, something that Obama and the MSM always conveniently fail to mention. John(reach across the aisle) McCain left the majority of us with no choice.

  12. Happy New Year to Family one & all. Push for States rights in 2010, it’s the way out of the muck. Never again is not long enough!!

    Check out Dave Barrys’ look at 2009.

  13. Sorry – Dave Barry previous link was to page 4 – below is link to first page.

  14. Rand Lamberth

    If Obonzo tries to cancel the 2010 elections, that action will–I repeat, WILL–lead to an armed insurrection the likes of which we have never seen in this country.

    You can do a lot of things to people, but if you try to deny them their right to vote, that’s spoiling for a fight!

  15. beyond disgusted

    Spot on, Larry. You have so been on a roll!

    I do have real concerns about the 2010 elections, which I have expressed before. Either BHO will invent some “emergency” as a reason for cancelling the elections; or we will have them, but acorn will so corrupt the process that the socialists/communists remain in control of Congress.

    Those of us who play by the rules are at such a disadvantage. We may well need divine intervention.

    Happy New Year to all in the family. And, bless you Larry. Your articles are a delight!

  16. Happy New Year to everyone in the NLTZ family!! Larry, keep up the awesome work. You make life more interesting with your perspective and wit. May God bless us all as we continue this fight into the new year. It will be an uphill battle, but if we stick together I know we can prevail.
    This corrupt administration will eventually implode. We must do everything we can to hurry that along and be ready to pick up the pieces and get back on track when it does.
    Never give up, never give in, never again!

  17. If the Dems are fool enough to cancel the 2010 Elections and the repudiation of the criminal fraud perpetrated upon the American people, it will mean the end of the Democratic Party and whatever sympathy they have amongst the Kool-Aid drinkers whom were fool enough to follow them. They will certainly do everything in their power to subvert the will of the people, but one should understand the nature of the enemy. Democrats cannot play fair, because they know that they are morally and intellectually bankrupt as a group. They are liars, cheats, thieves and murderers.

    Had Hillary Clinton won the 2008 Election, we would have put a woman whom has at least two corpses that can be laid at her door (Ron Brown and Vince Foster), and a long list of political enemies whom died, disappeared, or whose lives have been utterly wrecked because they ran afoul of her and her philandering husband.

    John McCain is an object lesson to the Republicans and we conservatives: do not let someone whom has a vested interest in destroying your party pick your candidate. Which is what happened. The liberal media elite sangs the praises of John McCain, and the Republicans chose him, hoping the media would love him.

    2010 needs to be the year we took back what was ours. Namely, our country.

  18. Family,

    Here is a fun start of the New Year at the “Thought of the Day”:

    No rest for the wicked, lets get “right” to where we “left” off..

    Thanks as always,


  19. G.,

    I need to look into the details of this theory but before doing so I will float this in case anyone else has any information..

    The left MAY get around the idea of “cancelling” the midterms based upon some more of their fuzzy mathematical computations.. These computations will appear through the Cencus..

    Depending upon when the math from the Census 2010 will be avilable for implementation, “Gerrymandering” may alleviate the need for the left to manufacture some kind of midterm delay..

    Once the political boundaries “change” as formerly contentious political areas such as Ohio and Florida are manipulated, the liberals using cooked Census numbers will work their magic.

    Don’t forget that months back, ACORN said they would provide tens of thousands of “volunteers” to help with the Census..

    Exactly WHEN the bogus Census numbers are applied will make a BIG difference..

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks as always,


  20. As I recall it takes at least a year for them tally and massage the numbers. The census starts early in the year but they are still cleaning up the stragglers in June. Then the state legislatures have to meet to finalize the re-drawing of the lines. Some states’ legislatures don’t meet every year so that is a factor as well. More research is needed to analyze the possibilities, but, it comes down to the reality that we MUST be active in our respective states and paying very close attention to what is going on. This battle will be won or lost at the state level, not the federal level.

  21. Bush wasn’t a bad person, but the press made sure that they continued to profile him as the Devil. I never bought that label. I think history will show a different take on him. In 2001, I was grateful that he was our President when 9/11 happened and his continued to fight to keep America safe from further attacks. God only knows what would have happened if Al Gore and/or John Kerry became our President. The problem was the lame-ass media who downplayed many of these potential attacks as three stooges/keystone cops. Unfortunately, they have been dedicated to downplaying these attacks since 9/11 and have tried to pacifying our worries and fears.

    There motive to doing this was threefold; they wanted to elect the liberal democrats, protect their ideas of what “civil rights” were, appearing sensitive to the minority groups in this Country, but more likely use these minority groups for their own benefit. They downplayed the Muslim angle and turned it around and blamed George Bushes policy on terrorist and their attack on Christianity and Capitalism. They hate us because we are wealthy theme song.

    I have never expected our President’s to always make the right choice for our Country, there’s just too much ideology involved anymore. They are humans and humans make mistakes. What matters are those elected officials own up to their mistakes? George Bush has acknowledged his mistakes, but Obama refuses to own up to his, which makes him a coward in my book.

    Choosing Janet Napolitano as the Secretary of Homeland Security never made much sense to me if the individual that was chosen didn’t have a military and/or Law Enforcement background, which she does not have, she’s a lawyer. Napolitano is a career politician, and other then being a lawyer and living and running a state that receives illegals; makes her the perfect candidate? I never understood why Obama chose a career politician over someone with a background in law enforcement or the military. However, it does make sense if you view illegal immigrants and terrorist as society’s victimology.

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website breakdown the qualification.

    To be eligible for Naturalization one must:

    • Be at least 18 years old at the time of filing the Application for Naturalization, Form N-400
    • Have been lawfully admitted to the United States
    • Have resided as a permanent resident in the United States for at least 5 years or 3 years if you meet all eligibility requirements to file as a spouse of a U.S. citizen
    • Have demonstrated continuous permanent residence
    • Have demonstrated physical presence
    • Have lived for 3 months in the USCIS district or state where the Application for Naturalization, Form N-400 is filed
    • Demonstrate good moral character *
    • Show an attachment to the U.S. Constitution *
    • Be able to read, write, speak, and understand basic English*
    • Demonstrate a knowledge of U.S. civics (history and government)*
    • Take the oath of allegiance to the United States*

    Notice the ones I placed a * next to the description. With the exception of reading, writing, speaking and understanding English, I don’t think most of Congress and members of the White House would qualify as a Naturalized Citizens if they weren’t born here. Most are thieves, which would disqualify them as lawful citizens. If they continue to steal from the taxpayer’s trough illegally means they lack moral character. I don’t think half of them understand our Countries history or how the Founders envisioned this Country. They spend more time remolding and “interrupting” what the Founding Father wrote or meant to imply by changing the Constitution and/or even actually read it. These current crops of fascist wannabe’s are trying very hard to put our Constitution through the spreader. It’s an inconvenience to them.

    They all take the oath that states… I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Or, “I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” How can they pledge an oath of allegiance the Country, its citizens and the Constitution when they are daily trying to dismantle it? I’m surprised that the ACLU hasn’t fought to remove the Bible and the line, So Help Me God, knowing how much they love the “separation of Church and State.” Who would have thought the part that reads “enemies foreign or domestic” would be our Congress.

    Anyway, even our corrupt CIA Director, Leon Panetta has no intelligence background and once again, he is another career politician, and a corrupt one to boot. Leon Panetta spent just two years in the military.

    At least Robert Mueller has both a military background (US Marine background as an officer for three years, leading a rifle platoon of the 3rd Marine Division during the Vietnam War) as well as a legal background. He is a recipient of the Bronze Star, two Navy Commendation Medals, the Purple Heart and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry). He earned his JD at the University of Virginia; he was a prosecutor and a litigator in San Francisco. He also spent 12 years as a United States Attorney. He also was a U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts as an Assistant United States Attorney, where he investigated and prosecuted major financial fraud, terrorism and public corruption cases, as well as narcotics conspiracies and international money launderers.

    Did Obama appoint him or a liberal Congress approve of him? No, of course not. We have former President George Bush and a Republican Congress for choosing this non-politician, with a legal and military background. The only thing positive that Obama did was keeping Mueller as the head of the FBI. However, I’m sure there were some objects from the left.

  22. T,

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Remember, this is Obama and ACORN, so “strange” things could happen.

    Suddenly, the Cencus and its mathematics will become yet another “number one priority” for obvious reasons, making the “normal” counting and tabulation time frame moot..

    They may not even get around to doing the pesky counts, they will just say that things are as they wish them to be and gerrymandering 101 is put into place prior to November. They could just seal up all of the documentation somewhere in the Archives and then only Sandy Burglar could have access to the actual figures..

    I wouldn’t put it past him, would you?

    Thanks as always,


  23. You are so right, Larry. Just because the Census Bureau severed ties with Snake-corn doesn’t mean they haven’t snuck in the back door. And just because the White House says they aren’t going to interfere doesn’t mean they won’t. They could invent another “crisis” that needs “immediate” fixing before the world falls apart so we just don’t have time to actually “count” everyone, we’ll just do that statistical estimating thing.

    You know, that statistics thing that they are so good at? Like the global warming.. Oops! I mean climate change.. Oops! Uuummmm… Well there’s the recommended mamogram schedule… I think I’ve made my point.

    Again, it is a battle, like many others, that we will have to fight at the state level.

  24. Happy New Year, NLTZ family. Larry, I don’t respond to every article, but I read every one. I continue to appreciate your and everyone else’s comments. We must all remain vigilent. I agree state’s rights in 2010 is a huge priority.

    This weekend I was reading about the Council on Foreign Affairs, the UN, the Federal Reserve and the Triological Socieity. Their whole purpose is, over time, to move toward One World Order, which we are fast approaching if we don’t get this goverment out of the hands of these elite thugs. Can anyone explain why the conservative media isn’t getting the word out about the over-riding goals of whittling down our patriotism so that we’ll submit to the world order? I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but maybe that’s what the conservative media is afraid of being labeled if they start digging and reporting on these things. I think that the “fundamental transformation” that Obama-lama-ding-dong talks about is toward one world order and he’s moving us there quickly.

    I’d love to hear thoughts from the family…

  25. Read everything you can find about the “Bilderberg Group.” It’s a eye opener…and a game changer.

  26. Thank you Rayne…very eye opening. And sorry, I meant Trilateral Commission. This is all so insane but really explains a lot. For years I’ve wondered who was pulling the strings and it’s becoming more clear.

    We must remain vigilent!
