Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing for Mar 28, 2012

Welcome to this edition of Time 2 Escape WIFLI Brief!

What is WIFLI?
You may be wondering what the acronym "WIFLI" means. I started out by calling these issues the Time 2 Escape Daily, but that didn't work out very well. I quickly learned that putting these issues together on a daily basis was a task I was unable to accomplish. To replace "Daily" in the title, I borrowed the acronym WIFLI, which literally means "When I Feel Like It." Putting together a post on this blog WIFLI works much better for my schedule, and for the higher quality of each issue that is eventually published!

No, I'm not gone yet.  I'm not done yet.

The government hasn't come to take me away, ...yet.

There is an advantage to being just one little citizen journalist, too tiny to see, able to fly under the far.

I open this briefing with the above words, because I am wondering how long it may be that I have the opportunity to keep paying it forward for the liberty of our children and grandchildren.

No, I had a slight physical affliction that affected my productivity in the last two weeks, and will soon have another medical procedure done on me that will prevent me from doing much here in April (2012). I don't like it much when I can not perform up to the standards that I expect from myself.

I read an incredible edition of Ralph Marston's Daily Motivator during my "down time" that did keep my inspiration high, and at least kept me hoping for a quick recovery. I knew this was a quote that should be spread far and wide in order to keep the love of liberty going:

Most of the work of achievement is done when no one is paying attention. Those who achieve, do the work even though it is difficult, demanding, tedious and far from glamorous.

More often than not, even the most impressive results come from plenty of plain old, ordinary hard work. It’s not extraordinary talent that distinguishes achievers, but rather an extraordinary level of commitment to getting the work done.

~ Ralph Marston, Ordinary hard work, Tuesday, March 20, 2012
It was pretty much an exercise of torture for me, like water-boarding, when I knew that I had so much to say, but was physically unable to just do the ordinary, let alone, the extraordinary. But at least I was able to go through the motions by determining the content I wanted to include in this issue.

Just don't freak out when my next absence occurs in the first part of April 2012. It can't be helped, but I do believe that we will somehow endure another lengthy time of inactivity here on the Time 2 Escape blog. I will, however, have some of "my people" keeping me advised of what needs to be included in the next issue that you will see here. One of those friends has already contributed to this briefing, and I owe a lot of gratitude to that individual.

I also owe some fist bumps to the Anonymous person that wrote a comment on my previous blog post. I don't get a lot of comments here, but one that was written made a lot of sense. It may explain a lot about our culture. and what you will read in this post that Paul Harvey talked about, that we have a short attention span. If that's the case, folks, we're going to lose. We need to focus, even if we can only do just a little bit every day. Just keep in mind the wise words of Ralph Marston, that "the most impressive results come from plenty of plain old, ordinary hard work. It’s not extraordinary talent that distinguishes achievers, but rather an extraordinary level of commitment to getting the work done."  

Sometimes, we have to just be happy to take one bite of the elephant at a time. It's a long process. The Commies (Progressives) took just a 100 years to accomplish their goals here in America.  I'm just sayin'...

The Vetting - Holder 1995: We Must 'Brainwash' People on Guns
From ~ by Joel B. Pollak ~ Mar 18, 2012 has uncovered video from 1995 of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder announcing a public campaign to "really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way."

Holder was addressing the Woman's National Democratic Club. In his remarks, broadcast by CSPAN 2, he explained that he intended to use anti-smoking campaigns as his model to "change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC" about guns.

"What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes."

Holder added that he had asked advertising agencies in the nation's capital to assist by making anti-gun ads rather than commercials "that make me buy things that I don't really need." He had also approached local newspapers and television stations, he said, asking them to devote prime space and time, respectively, to his anti-gun campaign.

Holder's Brainwashing Against Guns Foreshadowed Operation Fast and Furious
From ~ by Mary Chastain ~ Mar 19, 2012

Yesterday, revealed exclusive video of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder speaking to the Woman’s National Democratic Club, stating that he wanted to “brainwash” people against gun ownership.

The video reveals Attorney General Holder’s early, consistent, and strident enthusiasm for gun control legislation. He wanted schools to talk about anti-gun propaganda “every day, every school, and every level."

Operation Fast and Furious -- in which Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) smuggled guns illegally to Mexican drug cartels -- could finally have provided Holder the material for that anti-gun curriculum.

On December 7, 2011, CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson (who is the only one in the mainstream media faithfully reporting this story) shared documents proving that the motive behind Operation Fast & Furious was to implement harsher gun regulations.

Ms. Attkisson reported that Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) officials within the DOJ discussed using the illegal gun sales to justify “Demand Letter 3,” which would require some gun shops to report the sales of multiple rifles or long guns.

Each new revelation pushes Operation Fast and Furious up the chain of command and provides more evidence that it was to be used for more gun control.

The mainstream media tends to trickle out small bits of narrative as a story goes on. However, the first impression is the one that seems to prevail, just like when we meet new people. Our collective sentiment builds up to a point of no return, based on the initial elements of the story that we hear and see, over and over again.

But thanks to the new media - the citizen journalists - you will now find out more about a story which shatters the initial media spin of some kind of aggravated hate crime, where an innocent young black man was shot in cold blood because he was wearing a hoodie.

From this story: "Most media accounts of the story suggest Martin was walking down the street minding his own business when he was shot without provocation by Zimmerman." We learn, though, that it didn't really go down that way.  I'm just wondering now if the New Black Panthers will put a bounty on my head, too, for letting you know about this?

Witness counters Trayvon Martin media narrative
Says 17-year-old was beating Zimmerman before shooting
From WND ~ Published Saturday, Mar 24, 2012

Maybe George Zimmerman did act in self-defense when he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, whose death Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida, has been the focus of a media and political circus that even included Barack Obama weighing in this week.

An eyewitness to the incident told police Martin was beating Zimmerman before he shot him.

Zimmerman had called 911 to report the suspicious activities of a youth in his neighborhood, telling the dispatcher that he was following Martin.

On the recording of another 911 call, repeated cries of “help” can be heard before the gunshot.

The witness, identified only as John, says those cries were made by Zimmerman who was on the ground being beaten by Martin.

“The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: ‘help, help … and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said.

Executive-order panic: Martial law in U.S.?
White House quietly releases document that creates widespread worry
From WND ~ By Drew Zahn ~ Published Mar 18, 2012, at 5:13 PM

The White House’s late-week release of an executive order has sent the online community into an uproar, worried that President Obama had secretly provided himself means to institute martial law in America.

In the common practice of dumping government documents on a Friday afternoon, just as the news cycle is wrapping up for the week – a move critics say allows the administration to avoid widespread coverage of embarrassing actions – the White House released an executive order on “National Defense Resources Preparedness.”

Filled with language about “government-owned equipment” and a “defense executive reserve,” among other vague statements, rumors began to spread that the executive order expanded the president’s power to do everything from seizing whole industries to drafting private armies.

A Canada Free Press article titled “Obama Executive Order: Peacetime Martial Law!” spread concerns of gasoline ration cards; while an Examiner article declared the order would “nationalize everything” and “allow for a civilian draft.” Facebook, email and Twitter were suddenly abuzz, and even the extremely popular Drudge Report posted a link to the White House release under the title “Martial Law? Obama Issues Executive Order.

But are the cries of martial law and expanding executive power justified?

Why The March 16th, 2012 White House Executive Order Is Different
From Patriots For America ~ By Ann Barnhardt ~ Posted by Twana Blevins on Mar 19, 2012 at 10:58am

I’m getting really, really sick of these pundits and talking heads on the so-called “right” clucking their tongues at the unwashed masses and telling us that we’re crazy and paranoid to be the least bit concerned each and every time the Obama regime takes another stride toward totalitarianism. And it is EACH AND EVERY TIME.

Let me break it down for Ed Morrissey, and all of the other pundits in that social circle so that you can get your heads around this. We are concerned and even, dare I say it, panicked, because we can see the big picture of the Obama regime for what it is. We can take the totality of the dataset and draw not just a logical, reasoned conclusion, but a conclusion that is supported by centuries – nay millenia – of past precedent.

We are, as Patrick Henry put it, “willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

Why is the 3/16/2012 Executive Order worthy of grave concern? Simply put, because of the man and the regime who issued it... [EMPHASIS MINE]

Why Fear Communism?
From The Patriot Update ~ By Victoria Jackson ~ Written on Mar 13, 2012


They used to say, “He is not a Communist!” Now they say, “What’s so wrong with Communism?”

I got this email from my 28 year old friend “Al” yesterday:
We aren’t living in the 1950’s anymore. Why is there a fear of the communist bogeyman? Isn’t creating and perpetuating this fear just another form of propaganda?
Obviously, this boy has been brainwashed. I was so frustrated a cartoon cyclone came out of my head and ears. Then I wrote him back:
We aren’t living in the 1950′s anymore…so, suddenly communism works?! Which country is it working in?! (I wanted to say ‘you idiot!’) North Korea, Russia, Cuba? Are people flocking there to live? Risking their lives on rafts to get there?
The liberal Miami Herald today had an article about tourists visiting Cuba. They hated to admit that the place is a falling apart poverty stricken mess. They didn’t use the “c” word of course to explain why it suddenly went bad when Castro took over. All they would offer was, “…There’s no way tourism alone can prop up a system so enfeebled by the weight of government bureaucracy, market controls and limits on personal freedoms.”

“…a system enfeebled by the weight of government bureaucracy, market controls and limits on personal freedoms…” sounds like the Obama administration.

28 year old – do you want America to look like Cuba? Than stop defending communism!

The “utopia” of communism killed 94 million, according to The Black Book of Communism.

... Finally, Trevor Loudon makes it simple. Why should young people hate communism?

This is the part where I put it all together. I hope you have been paying close attention.

Paul Harvey, in 1965, tells you about what the evil soviet empire wanted to accomplish, and how they would accomplish their objective. This will be followed by a video that tells us how Saul Alinsky helped the goals along the way. Now, all you have to realize is that the President studied Alinsky's tactics. I think you'll see how so many pieces of the puzzle now fit together.

The prophetic words of Paul Harvey from 1965
From ~ Wednesday, Mar 21, 2012 at 1:47 PM CDT

Glenn played some incredible audio this morning on the radio program of radio commentator Paul Harvey from 1965. Glenn knew Harvey, and described him as “absolutely inspired of God.”

Last night on GBTV, Glenn explained to viewers that America has crossed over into new territory. “The progressives, I believe, have realized their dream. They have taken those baby steps,” Glenn said. “It is time to stop studying progressives.

Glenn challenged those that don’t think the progressives have accomplished their goals to “listen to the prophetic words of radio commentator Paul Harvey.

The audio is of Paul Harvey explaining how he would destroy us [America] if he were Satan…
“If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’

And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war that themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flame. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

If I were the devil I’d take from those, and who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were to devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing. Paul Harvey, good day.”

“That is unbelievable,” Glenn said after listening to the audio.

Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing for Tuesday, Mar 13, 2012

Welcome to this edition of Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing!

What is WIFLI?
You may be wondering what the acronym "WIFLI" means. I started out by calling these issues the Time 2 Escape Daily, but that didn't work out very well. I quickly learned that putting these issues together on a daily basis was a task I was unable to accomplish. To replace "Daily" in the title, I coined the acronym WIFLI, which literally means "When I Feel Like It." Putting together a post on this blog WIFLI works much better for my schedule, and for the higher quality of each issue that is eventually published!

It has been a week since my last edition of the Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing. That explains my decision to use my acronym, WIFLI (see above) in the name of these posts. After the last edition was published, I decided to take a couple days off from being productive. When I finally got back to work last Saturday, I actually expected to have an issue ready to publish by Sunday. But I found myself struggling to develop a theme for this issue.

It finally came to me early Sunday morning after listening to a radio show that caught my complete attention. The show was about the efforts of a very small group of the globalist elite that want to create a New World Order and global currency.  This has been a generational effort. The plans were detailed on how they would eventually accomplish their NWO goals. Because the undertaking of the plan has stretched over several hundred years, the changes have been extremely gradual, to the point where most people would never realize what was happening to them and our national sovereignty here in the United States. You know, like how you cook a frog.

Radical changes would never have worked... well, not until our current day. With so many of our children being indoctrinated over the last few generations in the public school system, and all of us soaking in the meaningless news that is dished out to us via the establishment-run mainstream media, I believe our globalist enemies believe that now is their time.

In 2008, the puppet-masters managed to get their progressive/socialist/globalist puppet elected as our President. Fortunately, enough of us were awake, created the Tea Party Movement, and managed to get the House of Representatives out of the control of the Democrats and the evil Marxist Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the very one that said we'd find out what was in Obamacare when it was passed. We slowed down the progress toward the socialist state that the globalist elites are steering us towards.

For those of us that want to halt the progress towards pushing our freedom off of a cliff, all of our efforts must be focused on making sure that many more Americans are made aware of the truth. We were lucky to have Andrew Breitbart here with us, even though that time was cut way too short. He set the standard. He moved the bar up higher than most of us can reach, at least on our own. However, I can promise you that thousands of the patriots out here, when our efforts are combined, will be able to carry on.

I happen to believe that Andrew Breitbart lived by the advice, or at least something similar, that Ralph Marston wrote in his Daily Motivator this morning: "Instead of resenting what you must do, rejoice at the opportunity to make a difference. Instead of casting yourself as a victim of low expectations, raise those expectations higher and higher through your commitment to excellence." You will want to know that if you are going to take action as Pamela Geller suggests:

Nonetheless, when I was speaking in Florida last Friday evening, someone asked me who would fill Breitbart’s shoes. No one. No one could. But all of us must. ~ Pamela Geller, in Gen. Patton leaves the field ...
That's right. Not one of us can fill Andrew's shoes, but we must, and that is going to take all of our efforts to go one better, to be going beyond what is expected of us. That's only if you believe that there really are people that want to end our freedom, and if you REALLY BELIEVE that your efforts can actually preserve our liberty. Oh, and we must all care! We must be Breitbart.  I'm just sayin'...

Iran War ‘Doomsday Clock’ Set to 10-Minutes-to-Midnight as Netanyahu Hints Conflict Could Occur Within Months
From THEBLAZE ~ by Sharona Schwartz ~ Posted on March 11, 2012 at 9:19am

The Iran War Clock - The Atlantic

On the heels of President Barack Obama’s meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week, diplomats and pundits continue to try to answer the perplexing question: Will Israel and/or the U.S. launch a military strike on Iran?

Now, one publication is throwing some science into the mix. Or at least political science. Modeled on the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock showing “how close humanity is to catastrophic destruction,” The Atlantic has assembled a group of former policymakers, journalists and academics to provide their private opinions, which are then combined into a collective prediction.

The clock is presently set at 10 minutes to midnight, or a 48 percent chance of war.

More from The Atlantic:
War or peace in the Middle East amounts to a coin toss. The probability that the United States or Israel will strike Iran in the next year is 48 percent according to a new project that predicts the chances of conflict–the Iran War Clock. And as a result, the clock is set to 10 minutes to midnight.

Panetta caught in one-world scheme
Defense secretary says 'international permission' trumps Congress
From WND ~ By Aaron Klein ~ Published Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta is facing criticism for statements he made at a hearing this week regarding the use of international military force without the explicit approval of Congress.

WND was first to report that before he was appointed chief of the CIA in 2009, Panetta co-chaired an initiative to regulate U.S. oceans and cede them to United Nations-based international law.

Panetta’s oceans initiative was a key partner of an organization that promotes world government, Citizens for Global Solutions.

Also, the group’s parent organization, the World Federalist Movement, promotes democratized global institutions with plenary constitutional power. It is a coordinator and member of Responsibility to Protect, the controversial United Nations military doctrine used by Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya.

At the hearing this week, Panetta stressed the need for “international permission” to launch an international military campaign against Syria, skirting questions about seeking congressional approval for such use of military force.

Wind farms in Pacific Northwest paid to not produce
From ~ By Dan Springer ~ Published March 07, 2012

Wind farms in the Pacific Northwest -- built with government subsidies and maintained with tax credits for every megawatt produced -- are now getting paid to shut down as the federal agency charged with managing the region's electricity grid says there's an oversupply of renewable power at certain times of the year.

The problem arose during the late spring and early summer last year. Rapid snow melt filled the Columbia River Basin. The water rushed through the 31 dams run by the Bonneville Power Administration, a federal agency based in Portland, Ore., allowing for peak hydropower generation. At the very same time, the wind howled, leading to maximum wind power production.

Demand could not keep up with supply, so BPA shut down the wind farms for nearly 200 hours over 38 days.

"It's the one system in the world where in real time, moment to moment, you have to produce as much energy as is being consumed," BPA spokesman Doug Johnson said of the renewable energy.

Now, Bonneville is offering to compensate wind companies for half their lost revenue. The bill could reach up to $50 million a year.

The extra payout means energy users will eventually have to pay more.

‘This Spring, We‘ll See Action’: Piven Issues Dark Prediction on Occupy Wall Street
From THEBLAZE ~ by Madeleine Morgenstern ~ Posted on March 9, 2012 at 5:28am

According to Frances Fox Piven:

  • The Occupy Wall Street movement is entering the phase where it “makes trouble.”
  • “We’ll see action against the banks, against the corporations.”
  • Different forms of protests that will engage many people.
  • Occupy was helped by “sympathetic” press coverage.

Frances Fox Piven
Leftist professor and activist Frances Fox Piven last week predicted the Occupy Wall Street movement is entering the phase where it “makes trouble” and will soon be taking action against banks and other institutions.

It may well be that the Occupy movement is now in its second phase, in the phase where it makes trouble, in the phase where it threatens to shut down institutions,” Piven said. “The Occupy movement has moved into the neighborhoods of our cities, it has moved into the schools….This spring, we’ll see action against the banks, against the corporations.

She added, “It is going to be a spring with lots of protests that take different forms and engage lots of people.

From WND Commentary ~ By Barbara Simpson ~ Published Mar 11, 2012

Did you hear the latest? The government-sponsored inquiry into the media and what it does resurfaced last week with a proposal to put restrictions on virtually everything – print, broadcast and the Internet.

In other words, all media would be scrutinized for “fairness and balance.”

Transgressions would be tracked, and media outlets would be legally accountable.

The same rules would apply to the Internet with government control over which URLs are permitted (domestic and foreign) and what content is allowed; even blogs with as few as 40 hits a day would be affected.

Breitbart's death just a coincidence?
Exclusive: Barry Farber shares concerns of famed medical examiner
From WND Commentary ~ By Barry Farber ~ Published Tuesday, Mar 6, 2012

First, let’s nail down the difference between a conspiracy theorist and a broad-minded person. A conspiracy theorist says, “Of course, Andrew Breitbart was assassinated. Look how many people benefit from his absence. He told CPAC he had videos that could doom Obama’s re-election chances. He told Sinclair News three weeks before he died, ‘Wait till March 1st!’ He died on March 1st. You’re a blind, cowardly idiot if you can’t see he was murdered.”

That’s the conspiracy theorist. The broad-minded person says, “There’s something not quite right here!”

Dr. Michael Baden is a broad-minded person who sits at the tip-top of the medical examiner (coroner) profession. Congress made him the medical examiner equivalent of America’s poet laureate. In addition to being chief medical examiner of New York City for decades, Dr. Baden was called in to do forensic work on the assassination of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King. He was called into the O.J. case. The Russian government reached across a continent and an ocean to have Dr. Baden determine whether newly exhumed bodies in Siberia were really those of the Romanoff (czarist) family. (They were!) There’s more on Dr. Baden, but that should do.

Andrew Breitbart at CPAC 2012
An article like this takes more character than stopping after one salted peanut. My editors would likely put this column “above the flag” – newspaper-ese for “maximum prominence” – if I could get Dr. Baden to say he suspects foul play in the demise of Andrew Breitbart. However, like a good football referee, let me put the ball exactly where Dr. Baden left it.

It’s known Breitbart had heart problems. And Dr. Baden believes, despite the almost supernatural coincidence of Breitbart dying precisely when his powerful enemies wished he would, that there was no foul play. But Baden doesn’t stop there.

Gen. Patton leaves the field
Exclusive: Pamela Geller says the world's a scarier place without Andrew Breitbart
From WND Commentary ~ By Pamela Geller ~ Published Tuesday, Mar 6, 2012

I cannot get my arms around Breitbart’s sudden death. I just can’t. Gen. Patton in the information battle-space leaves the battlefield at Normandy.

I mourn deeply on a personal level. My thoughts and prayers are with his wonderful wife and children. What a profound loss.

Andrew Breitbart was our warrior, our leader. Fearless, unapologetic, brilliant. I admire few people, but I admired him. He was in a league of his own. The herculean contribution he made to the war against the left and the enemedia cannot be calculated.

I just loved him. He was the only one on the right with fierce spine and courage. So many in the big right blogosphere and media are so afraid of tackling certain issues. They are weak. They are insipid. Andrew Breitbart was anything but weak or insipid. He loved to confront the lies, the corruption, the evil. He was the happy warrior indeed.

The world is a scarier place without him. I do not overstate his influence. The left and its organ grinder’s monkey, the enemedia, feared him. He terrified them. It’s why they despised him so.

He was a fearless champion.

Why we are a nation divided
Exclusive: Patrice Lewis says both left and right have turned gov't into an invasive cancer
From WND Commentary ~ By Patrice Lewis ~ Published Friday, Mar 9, 2012

With the presidential elections coming up this year, I’ve been giving a great deal of thought to why we are so divided as a nation. I know division has always been endemic in our country – in any country, really – but lately it seems that things are getting worse.

Why is that, do you suppose?

In a previous column, I touched on an idea that may offer some insight. I believe we’re divided because each side wants the government to support its own agenda, rather than keeping the government within its constitutional limitations.

What I wrote was: “So when election-year promises come down to politicians informing us that ‘MY government solution is better than THEIR government solution,’ I’m not impressed. … If we got rid of unconstitutional government interference, most of our country’s problems would solve themselves through the often harsh corrections of the free market.

“The trouble is, by allowing free-market corrections, we’d have no one to blame but ourselves when things go wrong or fail. But when we accept Big Brother solutions, it means we can blame the other guy’s government. And that’s why this nation is so polarized – we no longer take personal blame and responsibility for our failures, and instead spend all our time blaming the other guy’s government ‘solution.’”

Corruption beyond our imaginations
Exclusive: Joseph Farah quotes Joe Biden in rundown of 'clean energy' skulduggery
From WND Commentary ~ By Joseph Farah ~ Published Tuesday, Mar 6, 2012

How does Barack Obama’s administration get away with it?

How does it systematically redistribute billions in taxpayer money to sham companies, take political contributions from those companies, watch the government subsidies squandered, and pay no political price with voters?


The secret to their success is being involved in corruption that is audacious and beyond the imaginations of most Americans, who simply cannot believe anyone would or could attempt to get away with such schemes.

[Editor's note:  Skipping down to the end of the column for these very important words of wisdom for the GOP ... Emphasis below is my own.]

Who benefits? The politically connected pseudo-entrepreneurs and Obama and other Democrats who benefited from the kickbacks to their campaigns.

Why aren’t Republican presidential candidates talking about this monumental scandal every day?

Why aren’t they making commercials of those appearances by Biden?

Why aren’t they running against what amounts to a criminal conspiracy?

Go one better
From The Daily Motivator ~ By Ralph Marston ~ Published Tuesday, Mar 13, 2012

Do circumstances demand that you get up an hour earlier? Then put yourself firmly in control, go one better, and get up two hours earlier.

As long as you’re making the effort, make it count. Rather than doing just the minimum required to merely get by, do the maximum of which you’re capable.

Don’t just break even by giving what you’re expected to give. Go one better, and exceed everyone’s expectations.

And finally, there is this video that I stumbled on several days ago in a tweet by Rick Santorum. Yes, I still support Rick Santorum for the GOP nomination. But, the real reason for sharing this video with you is the discovery of the First Love Band. I think that you will see these young musicians go somewhere in life. Why? They seem to understand the concept of "Going One Better," and they are living it! You will love this song. I believe that, because I know Rick loves it. He said so in his own tweet! (That was how I discovered this song, and the group, First Love Band!)

Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing for Tuesday, Mar 6, 2012

Welcome to this edition of Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing!

What is WIFLI?
You may be wondering what the acronym "WIFLI" means. I started out by calling these issues the Time 2 Escape Daily, but that didn't work out very well. I quickly learned that putting these issues together on a daily basis was a task I was unable to accomplish. To replace "Daily" in the title, I coined the acronym WIFLI, which literally means "When I Feel Like It." Putting together a post on this blog WIFLI works much better for my schedule, and for the higher quality of each issue that is eventually published!

Please excuse me if I don't blush when I gush about this great edition of the Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing, for it is an excellent representation of the main theme of the stories and columns featured below.  (And, remember, it is Super Tuesday.... Very fitting!)

When our highly esteemed colleague and patriot Andrew Breitbart suddenly passed away, it was definitely a shock for many of us that knew him or were aware of his work. As Joseph Farah states, when somebody that is only 43 years of age with a wife and four children suddenly passes, "It’s just not right."

The total weirdness of the sudden, unexpected death of such a luminary that has found and brandished the weapon of mass destruction - the truth - against the colossal corruption going on in our society and politics seems to be a lot more than some people want to deal with. As Barbara Simpson writes, "Despite speculation there might have been foul play because of his new investigation of Barack Obama’s college days – which is not out of the realm of possibility...", the truth is, we still have the sorrow and grief for his family to deal with.

But sure enough, there are those out there that believe that Andrew's death was caused by the dark forces of evil wishing to prevent more revelations from becoming public. And though that is a topic that will be debated for many years, that isn't really what this particular post is about. (But don't worry, I did make sure that Alex Jones gets his two cents included below.)

Not taking away anything from the conspiracy theorists - and they may have a point - the real reason for me to focus on Andrew Breitbart today is to honor him by recognizing his leadership in the field of "citizen journalists," most of whom will never earn a nickel for doing what we do. The whole thing to remember is that there will not be just a 1,000 citizen journalists who will continue to fight for our freedom in our own ways, with the abilities that are God-given, but probably somewhere in the millions of us will carry on. That would fill up a lot of detention facilities (i.e., re-education camps)!

"They" may be able to take out one hero like Andrew Breitbart, if that is the case, but the pulse of those that desire to stay free will never, ever cease. The citizen journalists can't be silenced without a total purge. As I wrote on my facebook status one day: "Let me be perfectly clear: They will have to pry my grasp of Freedom from my cold, dead hands." Andrew Breitbart never ceased to keep trying to help us keep our liberty that our forefathers fought for. I'm just sayin'...

Breitbart legacy lives on in relaunched websites, final column
Via Breitbart’s Final Column Was Part of ‘Vetting Obama’ Series
From The Daily Caller ~ By Matthew Boyle ~ Published: 12:00 AM 03/05/2012

The late media mogul Andrew Breitbart’s final column was released Sunday night on a newly redesigned website that includes all of his “Big” sites under a single umbrella.

The column, which examines Obama’s admiration for radical community organizer Saul Alinsky, is titled “The Vetting, Part 1: Obama’s Love Song to Alinsky.”

Andrew Breitbart
Breitbart had planned the “Vetting” Obama series before his sudden death last Thursday at age 43. He announced the project during a speech at February’s Conservative Political Action Conference.

Breitbart said he didn’t believe the mainstream media did its job properly investigating President Obama’s past during the 2008 election and he would do the job the media failed to do this time around.

“I’ve got videos — this election we’re going to vet him,” he said in his CPAC speech, adding that “racial division and class warfare were central” to Obama’s 2008 “hope and change” slogans.

In his final column, Breitbart explored Obama’s decision in 1998 as a Illinois state senator to participate in a panel discussion after the performance of a new play celebrating the life of Alinsky.

Here is an excerpt from the introduction to Andrew's last column, "The Vetting, Part I: Barack's Love Song To Alinsky."
Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects--but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes.

Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama.

Breitbart: “Wait ‘Til They See What Happens March 1st”
Breitbart died hours before planned release of damning Obama footage
From ~ By Paul Joseph Watson ~ Posted Friday, March 2, 2012

In a stunning coincidence, It appears Andrew Breitbart suffered his untimely death just hours before he was set to release damning video footage that could have sunk Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.

Andrew Breitbart
Around three weeks ago on February 9 during the ‘Blog Bash’ event in Washington DC, Breitbart made a prophetic comment that takes on a somewhat chilling nature given the fact that he died in the early hours of March 1st.

Speaking to Lawrence Sinclair of Sinclair News, Breitbart stated, “Wait til they see what happens March 1st.”

It’s almost certain that Breitbart was referring to his plan to release damning footage of President Obama that he had been promising to reveal throughout the month of February.

As we reported yesterday, Breitbart spoke of his intention to release the tape during his CPAC speech last month. The footage shows Obama in his college days appearing alongside former Weather Underground terrorists Bill and Bernardine Dohrn. Observers had speculated that the footage could have derailed Obama’s hopes for a second term.

The fearlessness of Andrew Breitbart has spread throughout the new media. This investigative story by The Daily Caller exemplifies the fact that " ... when someone of Breitbart's magnitude passes, there are another 1,000 people that will continue where somebody like Andrew left off.":

Secretive nationwide network gives SEIU new organizing muscle
Via THEBLAZE ~ From The Daily Caller ~ By Richard Pollock ~ Published: 2:14 AM 03/05/2012

This is the first in a Daily Caller investigative series.

The politically aggressive Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has quietly created a national network of at least eight community-organizing groups, some of which function alongside the Occupy Wall Street movement, a Daily Caller investigation shows.

Incorporated by the SEIU as local non-profits, the groups are waging concerted local political campaigns to publicly attack conservative political figures, banks, energy companies and other corporations.

Each local group has portrayed itself as an independent community organization not tied to any special interest. But they were founded, incorporated, and led by SEIU personnel.

The individual activist groups use benign-sounding names including This Is Our DC; Good Jobs, Great Houston; Good Jobs, Better Baltimore; Good Jobs Now in Detroit; Fight for Philly; One Pittsburgh; Good Jobs LA; and Minnesotans for a Fair Economy.

In reality, they are creations of the wealthy and influential labor union, amounting to a secret network of new SEIU front groups.

I will start the conversation with the commentary regarding Andrew Breitbart by relating to you what I wrote within a couple hours after hearing the news and knowing it was confirmed:

Time 2 Escape WIFLI Special Edition: Andrew Breitbart dead at 43
From Blogging In Our Time 2 Escape ~ Posted Thursday, March 01, 2012, 11:18 A.M.


A very short time ago, when the story first broke on Fox News and then on Glenn Beck's radio show, I found out that Andrew Breitbart had passed away early today (or late yesterday?) from "natural causes."

It was a very big shock. I had just woke up from a very much needed power nap here in my office (darn, missed about 20 minutes of Glenn Beck's show!) when the story broke on Fox News, and so I pinched myself to make sure it wasn't just a dream, or a terrible nightmare. Very unfortunately, I was wide awake, and it really did happen.

The news hit me very hard. The things that Andrew had worked on in the last few years were fearless. He was a courageous patriot that exposed the corruption in government. Andrew understood that Americans needed to know what is really going on. He exposed ACORN back in 2009, with the help of undercover videographers James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles.

The fearlessness and courage of the man and his associates is matched by very few.

Back in the day before the WIFLI editions, I used to write about various commentaries by other patriots, one being Victoria Jackson that often received my accolades. This story was very fitting for this issue concerning Andrew Breitbart's influence on the New Media. My excerpt from this commentary will be from the introduction that I had written:

I know Andrew Breitbart! ~ By Victoria Jackson
From Blogging In Our Time 2 Escape ~ Posted Monday, April 25, 2011, 10:04 A.M.

I was finally able to read Victoria's column from last Friday morning. I'm a little behind on my reading. There is no shortage of brilliant columns to immerse ourselves in. Great media is coming at us 24/7/365 (366 next year!). And now with twitter and facebook and text messages telling us what our friends are reading or watching, there really is an infinite number of ways to entertain - excuse me, I mean educate - ourselves. Things just keep getting more hectic! But I am glad that I finally got to read Victoria's column. I learned a few things.

You will understand the gravity of the second paragraph of the excerpt above once you read down further. But first, make sure that you play the video below where Andrew Breitbart explains the citizen journalist movement to Sean Hannity:

~ Video provided by Fox News ~

It is all about CITIZEN JOURNALISM! I emphasize that point, because that is what this column is really about... for me. Sure, the actual theme of the column is that liberals can turn Conservative. Victoria and Andrew had once believed that they were liberals. They had at one time bought into the liberal lies... I mean ideologies. They became Conservatives. Don't forget, Ronald Reagan did the same thing.

Farewell to Bo Diaz (aka Andrew Breitbart)
Exclusive: Joseph Farah remembers hard-working conservative warrior
From WND Commentary ~ By Joseph Farah ~ Published March 1, 2012

WASHINGTON – You don’t expect to wake up in the morning to learn that a friend, colleague and fellow co-conspirator – 15 years your junior – has died.

It’s just not right.

That’s the news I got today about Andrew Breitbart, someone I have known and admired for nearly 15 years.

I still can’t believe it. All who knew him were hoping that someone had hacked into his website this morning and posted the news as a cruel joke. That would be just like Andrew’s enemies. But, alas, the unbelievably tragic announcement was confirmed.

Goodbye, Andrew, and thank you
Exclusive: Barbara Simpson ponders sting and suddenness of death

From WND Commentary ~ By Barbara Simpson ~ Published Mar 4, 2012
The morning I heard that Andrew Breitbart was dead, I was barely awake as the radio announcement broke through my groggy brain. The news, however, snapped me to attention and I began a day that drifted between the radio and the Internet to get the news, the updates, the speculation and the remembrances.

I didn’t know Andrew personally, but he was a guest on my KSFO radio program many times, always generous with his time and comments.

He was outspoken, brash, courageous and tireless.

I loved the story of his life from wild-child liberal to wild-man conservative! I admired him and his work and his accomplishments. He made my job easy, but his job was never-ending and difficult, battling the establishment.

The love/hate relationship Andrew’s work engendered was apparent in the reactions to his death.

Conservatives, those who were friends and those who were fans, lamented the loss and praised his diligence and courage in exposing the hypocrisy in today’s culture and politics.

To call the liberals predictable in their reaction to Breitbart’s passing would be generous. They were like lemmings going over the cliff, and their veiled insults were almost pleasant compared to the viciousness of blogs and tweets that relished in delivering the most egregious insults.

But the one aspect of his death was the suddenness. According to reports, he was fine, went out for an evening walk, stopped for a glass of wine and spent some time in good conversation and on his way home, dropped dead. Literally. He was 43.

Despite speculation there might have been foul play because of his new investigation of Barack Obama’s college days – which is not out of the realm of possibility...

Breitbart's final message to the left
Star Parker: 'Irony is that truth and compassion come from humility, not pride'
From WND Commentary ~ By Star Parker ~ Published Mar 2, 2012

If you think about it, Andrew Breitbart’s untimely passing from this life, at the age of 43, might be seen as the ultimate message that this man of media could deliver.

Breitbart famously used his media talent, particularly his facility with new media and new journalism, to fight the agenda of the left.

And what could strike more effectively at the heart of the premises of the left than the inscrutable death of a young and prodigiously talented and successful man, still scaling the heights of achievement, husband and father to four young children.

The fact is that the inconceivable and the unanticipated is the rule of our lives rather than the exception. Nothing more clearly defines the line which separates the political left from the political right than appreciation of this fact.

The left, after all, is about the pretense of planning, power and control. It’s about the belief that man – political man – can define and control the world and can appoint himself the final authority to determine what is fair and mete out justice.

Yes, it is true, I can not avoid telling you that there will be plausible suspicions regarding the death of Andrew Breitbart. That is part of this story, after all. To bring some light to the possibility, I can always depend on Alex Jones, who you can entrust to come up with that alternative possibility that many may not even think about.

Did The Obama Crime Machine Kill Breitbart?

Video provided by TheAlexJonesChannel on Mar 1, 2012

It took LA a week to declare the cause of death for Whitney Houston but they knew 2 hours after Andrew Breitbart's death that it was natural and they told the world as fast as they could. Andrew said he would release film that would hurt Obama and now he is dead. It goes on and on and if that film dose not get released in full I call shenanigans.
