Nature abhors a void

President Barack Obama surely is aware of the natural law that nature abhors a void. In fact, this natural law also is valid in politics. When a great nation stops acting in its normal historical role as the leader of the free world, another power will naturally assume this position. We are witnessing this in Crimea, so how long will it be before China moves on the disputed ownership of the islands Japan now claims?

When our president decided to lead from the rear, he signaled to the other nations that the United States no longer sees it as our natural role to provide leadership in the free world. He no longer sees the United States as the “shining city on the hill” (as if he ever did) and as quoted by President Ronald Reagan.

Has anyone in Washington considered problems down the road? Questions to be asked of our representatives include:

  • Are you in lockstep with our president on giving up the leadership of the free world?
  • Were you really OK with walking away from space exploration?
  • How do we deal with the Russians at the International Space Station?
  • What happens to our astronauts already there?
  • Could the Russians use the space station as a weapon against us or others?
  • Are you really for giving up the World Wide Web after the leader of the free world developed it?

Does anyone in Washington understand that actions have consequences? Why are only a very few of the brave souls who represent us speaking up and speaking out? Lockstep liberals and RINO Republicans are at fault and should accept blame.

There are times we need to look to those rebels in Congress who are speaking and offering solutions to our many problems, so take the time to listen and consider, please.

    Rod, another natural law; Congress abhors change. Sure, you'll hear sound bites here and there, but the real rebels that buck the system in Congress end up dead (Sonny Bono) or in prison (James Traficant) or redistricted out of office with a stern warning to shut up (Cynthia McKinney). Rebels in Congress are meaningless and your vote for Congressmembers is meaningless. You have political power, Rod, but you'll have to look elsewhere to find it.

  • A Question for Rod Keck....March 28, 2014 - 10:10 am

    Sir, Are you open to at least considering that...1. Our Government is NOT "OUR" GOVERNMENT, it is actually owned and controlled by International Bankers such as the Rothschilds and Rockefellers.... 2. The Federal Reserve is not "Federal" and there are no reserves.... The Federal Reserve is a sham front for the control of the US Economy, by The City of London Bankers, such as the Rothschilds.... 3. As to the choice of Presidents, there really is no choice, it is a sham tag team for the implementation of a New World Order, both candidates are chosen by top level committees such as the Bilderbergs and something referred to as The Committee of 300.... 4. All Wars are Bankers Wars... they gain more control by setting up countries to fight each other... 5. At the top "our" intelligence agencies are actually controlled by the Bankers in London... I could go on, but enough for now.

    Google... The Kremlin and Kabul: The 1979 Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan in Retrospect Charles J. Sullivan September 2011 ......... Throughout the course of history, Great Powers have foolishly chosen to engage in military adventures in countries of minute strategic importance, only to discover that they cannot so easily extract themselves from the theater of war once they have chosen to intervene. As a case in point, one of history’s most recent examples is the Soviet-Afghan War (1979-1989). Why did the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics invade Afghanistan in late December of 1979? Today, as the twentieth anniversary of the collapse of the Soviet Union draws near, it is important for academics and policymakers alike to understand the reasons why CERTAIN PRINCIPAK DECISION_MAKERS IN THE KREMLIN recommended to an ailing Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev that a military attack against a non-aligned and friendly communist government was the best course of action to pursue. This essay maintains that the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan proved to be a catastrophic mistake on behalf of the Kremlin, concluding with the Red Army’s humiliating retreat in 1989. .....Poster's Note... The Question here is Where these certain people really International Banker Rothschild operatives whispering in the ear of an ailing government to foment yet another war for the International Banker's Grand Chess Board....Hint read The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy And Its Geostrategic Imperatives by Zbigniew Brzezinski (Sep 18, 1998)

    I have a headache again today..... See the Illuminati have people planted in all governments worldwide... so we are back to All wars are Bankers Wars... most all the Central Banks in every country of the world are controlled by the International Banking Cartel and are not operated for the benefit of the individual country but for the collective goal of a New World Order under Banker control.

    The International Bankers funded the overthrow of the Czar of Russia, backed the writing and distribution of The Communist Manifesto and the creation of the original communist groups. They installed Mao in China..... They lured Japan into Pearl Harbor.... The Bankers Created Communism because they are the servants of Satan study what a Dialectic is, what did Hegel advocate.... create two opposing sides/ engineer a conflict between the two opposing sides/ actually be in control of both of the opposing sides / the outcome os the conflict is then controlled for the benefit of the controllers/ the ultimate goal is really One World/New World Order under the control of the Luciferians.

    Obama knows that his dissaproval ratings are now approaching a level that will support, sustain and buttress Articles of Impeachment. All it will take will be a National Security disaster or a very adverse domestic, personal or political revelation.
