Dan Bongino’s 4th of July speech on why we must fight back!

Dan Bongino gave a great speech today at a July 4 Conservative Soiree in Maryland where he talks about freedom and why we must fight back against the tyranny of the left. He said our government is interactive, like a boxing match, and we’ve been getting hit really hard over the last few years. It’s time to start hitting back hard.

Christians need to rise up and take your country back… it is one thing to pray and another thing to use the weapons at hand. The shepherd boy David knew what it was to pray but he did not waste time dealing with Goliath.  America’s Goliath sits in the White House.

Christianity seems to have purged the testosterone from the body.  How different it has been in times past.  They had no trouble picking up a musket or a long rifle during our Founding.

He’s right, yet California is a whole different animal.  Love it here, but it is a whole new ballgame…and over my dead body for my conservative stance as an American who so happen to be black, educated, and semi-successful has been and continues to be challenged, even after nearly 25 years.  For nearly 25 years I have tolerated every imaginable behavior known to man.  But because I refuse to open kit and apply tinfoil wrapping around my head, I have been treated like a malady, a cancer, and one who is the bane of those who are maniacal about controlling those who are damn set on maintaining God’s gift to man: Independence of thought, freedom, my friends.  ‘Til death do us part…

“Tyranny of the Left”  That’s exactly the threat we face, and the source of that threat.
It’s so blatant, even some democrats are starting to question why Dear Leader is reading their e-mails and letters, and listening to the phone calls.  Most lefties don’t really understand the threat that CommieCare brings to us – they’ve been conditioned to socialism by gov’t entitlements and elevate the free stuff from the gov’t above liberty.

But WHY IS AMERICA UNIQUE? I hear all the time “America is unique’! But no one ever explains WHY! An ideal? WHAT IDEAL? There are places around the world where liberty exists in measure, but WHY IS AMERICA UNIQUE? WHAT UNDER-GIRDS THIS SYSTEM OF LIBERTY? WHAT HAS MADE AMERICA’S THE SINGLE MOST SOUGHT AFTER IDEAL IN THE WORLD? It isn’t our government. It isn’t our culture. It isn’t our schools or our institutions of higher learning. What was the influence that distinguished us from every other nation on earth? What drove our Founders to adopt our system of governance over some other? (I’ll give you a hint: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/9217412922/lightbox/ ) Nowhere else in the world have you, or WILL YOU, get our system of government without first recognizing that which held the hearts of our Founders.

Dan Bongino is a rare individual on the current political landscape of America.  He speaks extemporaneously,  with no notes, no prepared speech, and he does it with an intense passion for the ideals he believes in.
We simply have to get this man a seat in our government.

The best thing about this particular video are the pictures.  It was masterfully done.  I wouldn’t change the words either, because a lot of us thought about those things growing up.  Some of us still do.  “Manifest Destiny,” are the fancy words they put on it, but you and know it was rape.  What they did to the Indians in order to take their land?  What they did to the Polynesians to change their way of life forever?
I understand what happens when one culture takes over another, but understanding it doesn’t make it any prettier.

Here’s the irony (situational hypocrisy) of the situation. If you take most of the ‘peace & love’ generation songs, and swap the ‘establishment’ in charge. the songs still mean the same thing but the people who wrote them are still hypocrites. wink wink

There are now eleven states that have more people on welfare than they have working. Is that sustainable? 17 trillion in current debt and growing rapidly, another 50 trillion at least in future liabilities. The average welfare family gets $168.00 per day in benefits. The equivalent of making $30.00 per hour. This info is from Investor’s Daily. Norm said lots of poor people are eating out of garbage cans. That’s a bunch of bunk. They’re making 50k per year doing absolutely nothing. The ever-tightening chains that have been laid unto this country by lawmakers is an absurdity beyond belief, yet here those chains are, strangling the nation, burdening those who still work, rewarding those who don’t. Then the “healthcare” law comes along and places huge burdens on employers who have to cut already struggling full-time workers to under 30 hours per week. Why not go on welfare and get a… Read more »

It has taken them over sixty years, but the fruit is now on the vine.  Communists have slowly, incrementally, changed the way most people think.  Down is Up, UP is Down, and to most  people today the whole thing makes perfect sense.
Do me just this one small favor.  Stop calling them Democrats and start calling them what they are.  Communists.

Speaking of “stand your ground,”  ‘fess Jacobson has a great guest post http://legalinsurrection.com/2013/07/zimmerman-trial-review-how-we-got-here-and-where-were-going/. I haven’t followed it much, but I did want to hear a recap by someone who knows what they are talking about.  So I suggest you skim it if you are interested in this show trial’s outcome.
One of the links in the story (which has several great links in it) is tohttp://lawofselfdefense.com/zimmerman-trial-myth-busters-did-zimmerman-chase-martin-against-police-orders/
It was another hoked up lie by the media’s selective editing.
Even though Bongino mentioned Stand Your Ground, this is really off-topic, so don’t reply to this comment.

kong1967 He’s a former Secret Service member, who ran for Senator in insanely-blue Maryland, against Ben Cardin.  He was screwed out of a debate with incumbent Cardin and the independent candidate by hurricane Sandy.  (Cardin is one of the most liberal Senators in one of our most liberal states–Bongino got only 27% of the vote.)
Bongino gets interviewed on Fox and other outlets as a subject-matter expert whenever presidential security comes up.

This is an important speech by a man this Arizonan has been watching for awhile. And I thank you, scoop, for posting it. I do take issue, however, with one of Mr. Bongino’s main tenets, and that is his comments regarding America as an idea, and then his emphasis on the now to the exclusion of the past, especially (he mentions the future, too, but I wish not to comment on that). America is more than an idea: it is a people with a history, glorious in many ways, a people with a shared majority culture. Here is how Larry Auster describes the American nation: ” . . . the problem with modern conservatism generally [is]: it treats America as a set of shared universal principles, plus an allegiance to the Constitution (a problematic allegiance given that that much of the Constitution has been turned on its head by liberal judicial… Read more »

OliviaHT That was well said, but I think you’re both right.   The idea he was referring to was our freedoms.  It’s the central and focus point to everything this country stands for.   The Constitution hinges on the “idea”….to make it a reality and to protect it.   The Constitution is treated as a mere piece of paper that politicians drive a truck through knowing they are destroying what the document originally meant.  We have to remember what the Constitution was designed to protect…..which is our freedoms….the “idea”.
All he was suggesting about the past, present and future is that we can’t redo the past, and you can’t wait until the future.  We have to act now.  
I’m sure he would agree with everything you said and I’m sure he didn’t mean to insinuate otherwise.

OliviaHT
Guest
OliviaHT

kong1967 OliviaHT  Yes, Kong1967, thank you. I did catch his implied meaning about the past, the “redo” part, he means in reference to our more recent past, I suspect, what with the slow-moving train-wreck the GOP has made of itself trying to outdo the statist (communist) Democrats (my interpretation of his point, right or not, I’m not sure). But I honed-in on his comments about the now because of his repeated use of the phrase, America is an “idea,” that idea being freedom. My point is that if the idea, the freedom to which we cling, is not grounded in something concrete — our history, our shared principles and values, the culture of our people — then freedom can mean things we don’t want it to mean, i.e., license, or the libertarian understanding of freedom shorn as it is of any notion of a moral order and each man is own… Read more »

Great points.  One thing that has always annoyed me is the claim by
Conservatives that America is an “idea” or a great “Experiment”.  I’ve
always found that notion absurd.  An experiment that works is no longer
an experiment, it’s no longer an idea. 
When an iron ship was
first floated it was considered an “experiment”.  Now that hundreds of
thousands of iron ships ply the seas, no one refers to them as “floating
experiments”.America is no longer an experiment.  It’s a real live cultural and social entity working
and living within a viable form of constitutional government which passed from the
experimental stage long ago.

Egypt was blessed this week. I think it is a good question–Why? They came out for the idea of freedom,–Christians and other non-radicals,shoulder to shoulder,  to demonstrate for it. I think the Lord who gives victory helped them. Can we demonstrate in DC for idea of freedom, with many spokespersons who understand, speaking like this man in her defense?

This is Amazing. Love it!  This is a must listen to. God Bless Dan Bongino for this message. This is a fight not only for us, this is a fight we must win, because truly this IS the last chance of freedom and hope for people from every other nation who comes here in desperation.  If America falls to the enemies who are hoping to change it into their communist/socialist/sharia utopia, the world will have no free place, no shining city.  I came her for Freedom. I don’t intend to sit back and have these pos’ take it.

Cruz who gets up everyday to make a difference in the Senate.  I do want to mention something today.  I still think sowing to the children is all important and the salve for the nation that will count the most.  I have been listening daily to a local preacher that has been doing an amazing thing quietly for 32 years.  Good place to listen, glean, and apply truth.  I just wanted to share this with you, however far afield it may seem, but really isn’t.  Hoping you will have a chance to hear the messages as well as hear about what they are doing… Read more »

AmericanborninCanada BTW, I am a repentant abortion sinner.  I am speaking from that perspective every day and any day of the week.  I am not speaking as a better than anyone else person.  So may that remembered.
Here’s a scripture that to me may support the priority of children first for our nation:  “A man who does not take care of his family is worse than an unbeliever” (1Tim 5:8). So it may be a first priority for the nation to take care if its famliy first?  Possibly?
Why I am telling you this?  Well in support of Cruz I guess and his roots.  And in support of FV, and its example.  Amen!  Have a blessed day.
