WIFLI Briefing for Apr 21, 2012 - Some call it the Transformation of America.

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 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!

As I was growing up, I only knew one thing: America is a free country!!  I was never made aware that freedom could be so easily stolen from us.  For as long as I was taught to respect our freedom by saying the Pledge of Allegiance, taking my hat off and placing it over my heart during the National Anthem, and when it was still okay to mention God and Christian values during school and government functions, I would never have thought about America being anything but free.

Things have become much different over the years.  The people we would think that have the highest moral standards, just to do their job properly, let us down in Cartagena, Columbia. And shortly after, people from the same agency want to question a man, a person widely known for his patriotism, for speaking his mind at an NRA convention. And yet, in the mean time, Attorney General Eric Holder shies away from looking into violent rhetoric from those that want nothing less than taking America down from the way we know it and love it.

Some call it the Transformation of America.

It has become my purpose in life to make sure the man that stands for the Transformation of America is not re-elected as President in November 2012. No, not on my watch.

To be sure, I do not have much weaponry laying around, let alone armor or a shield to defend myself with. Not that I would have a chance against the men in black (sounds better than "storm troopers"). And we have learned pretty recently that having lethal weapons that can be used defensively carries a lot of responsibility. I believe that Phil Elmore hit it on the head this week when he wrote, "The gun you need to protect your castle":

Keeping a gun in the home is a great benefit in terms of self-defense, but it is also a weighty responsibility. Treat it accordingly … and make your decisions armed with this information.
Not until I read Ralph Marston this Saturday morning did I realize that I even had a weapon:
Achievement is in you. Let it flow out into your world.

Your dream is beautiful. Let it compel you to bring it to life.

You are highly skilled at making things happen. So choose to take the best things you can imagine, and to make them real.

This day will come and go, whether you do anything with it or not. So decide right now to do every good thing you can imagine with it while it is here.

~ Ralph Marston, Achievement is in you, Saturday, April 21, 2012
My weapon is my dream of continuing freedom as I have known it. But I think that Ralph Marston also had it right when he states, "Don’t be ashamed that your dream is too big or too small or too quirky or too difficult to explain. Just get busy with that authentic dream, and find great delight and fulfillment in making it happen."

That's all I am doing here. I have nothing else to fight with but the information I am able to share with you, and my only prayer and hope is knowing I'm not alone! You can take it anyway you want, but at least you know it can't cause lethal wounds. Well, at least that is what Ted Nugent thought.

Oh, wait, let me paraphrase myself: "My dream is my only weapon, the truth is my only ammo." I'm just sayin'...

Three Secret Service Agents ‘Forced Out’ Amid Prostitution Investigation
From ABC World News ~ Via THEBLAZE ~ Published April 18, 2012


Secret Service agents are being forced out of their positions as officials investigate the alleged hiring of prostitutes and other questionable behavior during a presidential visit to Colombia.

"Although the Secret Service's investigation into allegations of misconduct by its employees in Cartagena, Colombia, is in its early stages, and is still ongoing, three of the individuals involved will separate or are in the process of separating from the agency," said Paul S. Morrissey, the assistant director of the U.S. Secret Service Office of Government and Public Affairs, in a written statement.

One supervisory employee was allowed to retire and another was "proposed for removal for cause," the statement said. In addition, a non-supervisory employee resigned.

The employee proposed for removal has been given notice and will be allowed to fight the move, the Secret Service said.

Eight other Secret Service employees remain on administrative leave with suspended security clearances.

Secret Service: 3 more resigning, scandal total now 6; Obama briefed by agency director
From Washington Post WORLD ~ Via WND ~ By Associated Press ~ Published: April 19 | Updated: Friday, April 20, 6:46 PM

WASHINGTON — Three more Secret Service officers resigned Friday in the expanding prostitution scandal that has brought scorching criticism of agents’ behavior in Colombia just before President Barack Obama’s visit for a summit meeting last week. Agency Director Mark Sullivan came to the White House late Friday to personally brief Obama in the Oval Office.

The Secret Service announced the new resignations, bringing to six the number of agency officers who have lost their jobs so far because of events at their hotel in Cartagena.

Also late Friday, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa urged a broader investigation, including checking hotel records for White House advance staff and communications personnel who were in Cartagena for the summit. In a letter to Sullivan and the inspector general at the Homeland Security Department, Grassley asked whether hotel records for the White House staffers had been pulled as part of the investigations.

Also in this column...

Former VP Candidate SARAH PALIN
On Chaney’s Facebook account, which was made inaccessible on Friday, Chaney joked about his work with former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin while he was protecting her in 2008. The AP published a photograph it took of Chaney working in Palin’s protective detail in October 2008 during a campaign rally in Carson, Calif.

“I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean?” Chaney wrote after a friend commented on the picture posted in January 2009 on Chaney’s Facebook account.

Speaking on Fox News late Thursday, Palin said the joke was on Chaney.

Well, check this out, buddy — you’re fired! Palin said. (Emphasis my own)

And speaking of the Secret Service, here they are again in another story which started getting legs just a few days ago... In the following column, there is quote that smacks of the liberals' double standards when it comes to devisive (and dangerous) speech:
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman, a Florida congresswoman, called on the Romney campaign to denounce Nugent's remarks, which she called "despicable, deplorable and completely beyond the pale."
So, Debbie, if you don't approve of what Ted Nugent said, why don't you also come down on the leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, or the New Black Panthers?

Secret Service 'Aware of' Nugent Remarks
From BIG HOLLYWOOD ~ By UPI ~ Published Apr 17, 2012

WASHINGTON, April 17 (UPI) --
The Secret Service said it will "follow up" on remarks by rocker Ted Nugent that he will be "dead or in jail" if U.S. President Barack Obama is re-elected.

The conservative rock guitarist and spokesman for the National Rifle Association -- in a video posted by the NRA on YouTube (see my comment about the NRA video below) -- said, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

"We are aware of it, and we'll conduct an appropriate follow up," the Secret Service said in a statement, New York magazine reported Tuesday.

Nugent, who has endorsed Mitt Romney for president, said administration officials including Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder are "criminals." He said the government has been "wiping its ass with the Constitution" and called on voters to "ride into that battlefield and chop (Democrats') heads off in November," CNN reported.

I was unable to find the NRA 2012 Annual Convention video of Ted Nugent on the NRA youtube channel.  And for some
strange reason, I had a difficult time trying to find videos of Ted Nugent's comments that weren't on liberal-leaning media sources... I'm just sayin'...

Beck Defends ‘Good Man’ Ted Nugent From Leftist Attacks, Asks Why Secret Service Doesn’t Investigate Farrakhan Instead
From THEBLAZE Stories ~ by Tiffany Gabbay ~ Posted on Apr 18, 2012 at 8:45pm

By now, Blaze readers are likely familiar with the controversy surrounding rock legend Ted Nugent, who spoke out candidly against the administration during an appearance at the recent NRA conference. In particular, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz bore the brunt of Nugent’s scorn, but he had some choice words for the administration as well. Needless to say, his remarks went over like a lead zeppelin with leftists, and as a result, the longtime rocker is now being investigated by the Secret Service — the same agency whose members were recently dismissed for allegedly engaging the services of Cartagenian prostitutes.

Glenn Beck, noting the irony, dedicated a portion of his Wednesday evening broadcast to defending someone who he considers an American patriot, a man of faith, a responsible steward of the land and simply, an over all “good, decent man.”

If Nugent is on the Secret Service’s radar, Beck asked if the agency also plans to interrogate members of Occupy Wall Street, Louis Farrakhan and the New Black Panthers, all of whom have overtly called for physical violence. Yet, as Beck pointed out, while Hezbollah “gets cozy” with Julian Assange on Russia Today, Warren Buffett’s corruption intensifies, and GSA’s lavish clown-filled team building exercise comes under fire, it is somehow more important to probe Ted Nugent.

Rather, Beck suggested the president send someone to investigate his own Secret Service in the wake of its scandal rather than interrogate The Motor City Madman (as Nugent is dubbed) famed for crooning such melodies as “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” and “Cat Scratch Fever.”

And now for the good stuff! This is where I get SERIOUSLY partisan, politically speaking, to the RIGHT. This is where I tell you about MY favorite items in the "alternative" media in the last week or two. Sure, this has to be a "Rightwing conspiracy." Isn't it all too convenient that the sentiment in Conservative America is all about defeating the socialist President Obama? Why, yes it is. I'm very thankful to have the ability to tell you about it, too.  As my friend Mychal Massie says, "NO MOBAMA"!

Obama's advancing communism
Exclusive: Erik Rush urges Americans to beat the drum about BHO's 'Marxist agenda'
From WND Commentary ~ By Erik Rush ~ Published Apr 11, 2012 at 7:34 PM

For 100 years, communists believed that America was the only thing standing in the way of communism truly “succeeding” internationally. That’s a convenient if transparent bit of propaganda, but one which has resulted in leftists remaining dedicated to the objective of bringing America down for decades. American communists, being the pathological narcissists they are, have convinced themselves that they’ll do it the “right way” this time. Having dismantled America, what then could they not accomplish?

Upon his return from a week’s hiatus on the radio, commentator Glenn Beck showcased a piece of audio featuring members of the New Black Panther Party on a conference call. Although the renewed activity of this group was brought on by the Trayvon Martin shooting, millions of Americans are aware that this incident did not merit the hue and cry that came up from black activists, including the NBPP. What follows is why it nevertheless did result in such.

While the pretext of the New Black War Kittens’ conference call was, as usual, that of fighting racial oppression, they were very up front about their desire to destroy capitalism. The common denominator of Marxist objectives across the activist groups rearing their decidedly ugly heads at present is something Beck has been stressing – as well as the fact that the advancing Marxist agenda is being not-so-subtly choreographed from Barack Obama’s White House.

GOP lawmaker says 75-plus Dems are communists
From GOPUSA News ~ By Donna Cassata ~ Published April 12, 2012 6:54 am

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Rep. Allen West said he believes 75-plus House Democrats are members of the Communist Party, a claim that echoed Joe McCarthy's unsubstantiated 1950s charges that communists had infiltrated the top ranks of the U.S. government.

Congressman Allen West (R-FL)
Addressing a town-hall meeting Tuesday in Florida, the freshman lawmaker was asked how many members of the American legislature are "card-carrying Marxists." West said "there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party." He did not provide names.

West's office said Wednesday that the congressman stood by the comments and was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest group within the House Democratic caucus. (Emphasis my own)

Are you having fun yet? I'm just getting started! Unfortunately, though, I may be stepping on some the toes of some best friends by including this next commentary. But this is about accepting Romney as the candidate to defeat Obama.  You all know that I was all for Herman Cain, and then Rick Santorum. Unfortunately, I lost my candidate Rick when he recently dropped out of the race. Bobby Eberle came to my rescue by writing his column, and I feel better.

Santorum Makes Right Move, Gives GOP Time to Unite
From GOPUSA The Loft ~ By Bobby Eberle ~ Strategic column deployed back on Apr 11, 2012 @ 7:13 am

Rick Santorum called it quits on Tuesday after having surprised the entire country with his presidential campaign. From the guy on the outer edge of the debate stage... the one struggling to get any air time -- to the candidate who picked up 11 primary/caucus wins, Santorum became the focal point for conservatives and the alternative to Mitt Romney. However, the writing was on the wall for a number of reasons, and Santorum picked just the right time to step aside and help bring the GOP together.

And a little later, Bobby Eberle goes on to say:

Too bad that can't be said about Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul. As noted in the Fox News story, the two have "vowed to stay in the race." Come on, folks! Yes, in order to run for president, one probably has a big ego, but enough is enough. Spending money that could better be used to fight Barack Obama is just stupid.

Now is the time to come together and focus on the real target: Obama and his left wing agenda. We have the chance to right the course. It's time to do it.
