In 2010-A legion of Joe Wilsons who won't apologize

For a moment last night something unprecedented, unheard of, indeed almost unbelievable happened while Barack Obama was giving one of his televised, teleprompter specials: his audience actually heard the truth.

Of course they didn't hear it from Obama. "A republican House member shouted, "You lie" during [alleged] President Obama's health care speech to Congress on Wednesday." As we sadly would expect from the gutless gaggle of Obama lickspittles that dominates Congress at the moment, "members of both parties condemned the heckling." Thanks I'm sure to this pressure "After the speech, South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson issued a statement apologizing for his outburst."

Poor Mr. Wilson! He dared to say what is on the hearts of a growing majority of Americans sick to death of the boldfaced prevarication now worshiped and glamorized as masterful oratory. He violated two of the unwritten rules of order that now govern the sick bipartisan dictatorship that presently masquerades as the U.S. Congress. He spoke the truth. He dared to represent the views and convictions of his constituents. I'm sure that millions of informed voters felt a lately unaccustomed surge of respect and gratitude for that singular voice speaking with laconic eloquence the very words they were repeatedly shouting at their television screens.

I will admit it. Such viewers are hardier souls than I. I know that actually listening to so many lies, spoken with the arrogant self-assurance of a master, is more degradation than my free citizen heart can bear. I know that, like Joe Wilson, I would "let my emotions get the best of me." But years of academic discipline have accustomed me to read all kinds of groundless stuff and nonsense on the printed page without prejudicial emotion. So I wait to read such speeches in print. (By the way, those who know me at all well know that, with the exception of the speeches like the one G.W. Bush gave in the wake of 9/11, I generally took the same precaution with every speech Bill Clinton or either of the Bushes gave when they were in office. God knows, I haven't risked listening to a speech by the sitting occupant of the White House since Ronald Reagan left office.)

So I admire the informed viewers who suffered through the faux decorum of last night's oppressive caricature of the solemn moments for which such joint sessions of Congress were once reserved. Obviously, Obama's speech didn't bring to mind FDR's stern request for a declaration of war against the Japanese empire. No, it was a painstakingly assembled repetition of the oft refuted lies and false promises Obama has relied upon to promote his faction's proposed government takeover of the health sector- a scheme that is itself an assault on truth, conscience and the survival of American liberty.

Though I understand the pressure that led Joe Wilson to repent of his clarion moment of truth, it disappointed me, as I'm sure it disappointed voters in his district who had just about decided to make him an exception to the "throw da bums out" tidal wave rising to sweep aside this forgettable Congress of socialist toadies and tut-tutting fellow travelers in 2010. Where are the sturdy tribunes of the people who had the courage to speak the truth and let the votes fall where they may? Where are the frontier spirits that would brave the lions of Washington corruption, relying on their faith in the decent voters who elected them to defy its pressures? I guess they've all moved to the DC suburbs and forgotten their way home.

Rather than accept the pretense that civility and politeness require that we patiently suffer the arrogant lies of would be tyrants bent on finalizing the destruction of our sovereignty, I think it's long past time for Americans who understand and love their liberty to remind them of the first rule of civility when addressing the sovereign body of the people- Don't throw proven lies in our face and expect us to grovel and applaud. You address the Congress of the United States, not the servile bipartisan Congress of some Communist People's Republic. Not yet, anyway. And not ever- not once we get the chance to trump your false promise of socialist utopia with this true promise we now make solemnly to ourselves and for our liberty- We promise to send a legion of Joe Wilsons to Congress in 2010, who will speak the truth and make you apologize for trying to enslave us with your lies.

I doubt Winston Churchill would have apologized. If we aren't moved in this hour, we are soulless and unspiritual. I don't think that was his emotions "getting the best of him". It was the Spirit rising. I am tired of civility trumping truth. If ever there was a time for passion - it is now!! He should NOT have apologized.

He spoke what MANY of us believe to be true.
Sad to hear that under pressure, he apologized though.
Alan, I so admire you and your stance on what is happening to our great country!

Correct, Joe Wilson should not have apologized. Why should he? The Obama administration has proven time and again that decorum and civility no longer apply, not to mention respect for our Constitution and the American people.

I noticed that John McCain was critical of the outburst and demanded an apology from Wilson. Due to John McCain, in part, we now have a radical communist occupying the oval office who surrounds himself with tax cheats, thugs, criminals and like-minded revolutionaries. If John McCain would have displayed some guts to justifiably call Obama out as a Marxist during the campaign, perhaps the election outcome would have been different, despite the number of illegal votes provided by ACORN.

And speaking of the scum that surrounds the occupant of the White House, Cass Sustein, the Regulatory Czar, will no doubt begin the "transformation" process to destroy our God-given freedoms and usher in the Obama tyrannical Socialist State.

Funny how last night, while watching the History Channel's program on Nostradamus' third anti-Christ, I could not help but notice the similarities between the prophecy and Obama.

The way I see it is this, the republicans are scared to stand up to this guy in any meaningful manner. And specifically in the Senate, there are enough rinos to help the dems get socialized health scare get pushed through.

Joe Wilson was correct and in my opionion couragious (at first) in what he said. But he allowed the lickspittles on both sides of the isle to bully him into apologizing.

Dr. Keyes, I supported you for President, I supported your stance on nearly every aspect of your stance on America as a free Christian nation. But I'd like your take on something.

When a people desire for their government to hear their voice, and that government, instead, ignores them they resort to demonstration(peaceful). If that goes unheard or is outright dismissed, then civil disobedience is the next recourse. If that, in turn, is ignored or belittled, what is the next logical step for our nation's citizens?

Jason Knight said...

My soul burns within me to strike down those who utter falsehoods, those purveyors of malice and deceit, yet I know to give into these desires would be to commit in essence, the same offense against the Almighty as those committed by them I would strike down; the action is vengeance, the sin is pride, and the heart that desires it is utterly bankrupt. God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

In your sovereignty, you have allowed this president, congress, and all that comprises this nation to be as it is; for your purposes, You have caused it to be. Grant peace, love and power to my spirit, strength to my heart and body, and soundness to my mind. May your will be done through me and this president. Neither may he or I shrink from the deeds you would have us fulfill.

Joe Wilson demonstrated to BO HOW to apologize which BO refused to do when he became outraged and spoke erroneously (lie?) of the police incident.

Way to go Joe! That man who sits where our real, honestly elected legitimate USA president should sit, and all of his supporters, do lie.

We all should carry a picture of BO with Joe's quote. May we quote you Joe?

There is a pastor right now that is praying for Obama to die. And he encourages others to do so. I do not agree with him, but I see why he does. He says GOD can hate people. So does the Bible... But JESUS says to pray for your enemies, and King Hussein is an enemy not only to our country, but to our souls.

I believe Obama had a WONDERFUL opportunity to make something of the opportunity afforded him simply by having a Kenyan sire - in other words in the land of Affirmative Action, he is "black." Instead of being the Christian that he said he was, one of his FIRST acts was to sign legislation that would send hundreds of millions of OUR tax dollars around the world to murder babies in the womb. He has not done ONE single thing since then that could be termed as even slightly righteous. Not that I have read anyway...

Did Rep. Wilson apologize like the Demorats do - "I am sorry that your feelings got hurt." Or, "I am sorry that you heard me." Or, "I am sorry that you misunderstood what I said." Or, "I am sorry to have to apologize because you are wrong and you do not know the meaning of the word 'is'."

I see on the MSN website that they say the legislation does NOT provide for illegal alien health coverage, but why should that matter when they are already getting it anyway? Everyone with half a brain knows that Obama and those in his hire are doing everything they can to destroy this country as we know it and rebuild it into something most of us have only read about in books.

I have nothing against Rep. Wilson and do not live in South Carolina, but would be just as pleased to put an entire bunch of new people into the Senate and House. I am not interested in any of them honestly and besides Rep. Cantor, I am sure the rest could stand to go. He is the only one I have seen thus far from the Republicans that seems to have a spine. But then again, I do not know them all. I just know that any representative who signed a bill that they did not PERSONALLY read OR signed the legislation saying King Hussein is from Hawaii needs to go. That is the end of it for me.

I think it would have been funny if he went up and unplugged the teleprompter myself...

Mr. Keyes,

Thank God for a humble man filled with the Holy Spirit like yourself. You should be our true President who follows God's law. Our country would be stronger if they didn't question everything and focus on change. God gave Moses the law and our Constitution was under God's law. These liberal, illuminati people are destroying this country and brain washing people. How disrespectful to brain wash our children who are so close with God. I love hearing you speak with faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. When you were debating against Obama on if Jesus Christ would vote for him, he started the conversation with a "laugh" from the devil and then stuttering "and aaa" 27 times. A man like yourself who is filled with the Holy Ghost, a true Christian, spoke ethically and quoted scripture and did not stutter. True Christians speak like this not the liars! God bless you, I hope one day I can share in person ethical conversations about the Lord, Amen.

So it was all over the TV tonight. From Katie Couric (sp? - whoever) to Extra. "The shout that was heard around the world!" HA! They are so funny...

Did you SEE Nanny Polutesy's face? She was too funny. Actually that was the first time I had ever seen her move her eyes and mouth at the same time...

I really must have no grace or dignity or something. I just do not see what the big problem is. I mean honestly. A person can only take so much.

What is worse? Being called by what you do all the time or actually doing the thing you are being called. I wonder on the scale of life is GOD more concerned about poor wittle King Hussein being called a liar (which he is) or Obama lying ALL THE TIME. I mean really... have we become so above being human that just because we are the great Americans that we dare not say anything in such a fashion in such a forum to such a person? I guess I am not as refined as I thought...

I just know that when I hear people say they are going to throw millions behind whoever runs against Rep. Wilson because he called poor wittle Obammy a wittle name while him was on TV... please... there is something wrong with THAT.

I really think this whole notion of civility is being stretched to mean something entirely different than what it is. By what some have said, they would say JESUS was not civil in the temple. I bet they wouldn't say it to HIS face though...

PS - Tomorrow will be EIGHT years since terrorists mainly from Saudi Arabia hijacked planes and ran them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and into a field in PA. They killed MANY innocent people. We blame all are current troubles on President Bush (many people do), but what would we have went through if another president had done his job instead of playing with cigars in the Oval Office? What would have happened if we had had Mr. Global Warming as president?

What is going to happen now that Iran is MONTHS away from having nuclear weapons and the only thing we can focus on is "health care" and "the shout that was heard around the world..." Will this person, who no one really knows who he is, be there for us? What will he do if we have another attack on this country?

GOD bless those family and friends who still morn the loss of their innocent loved ones...

Obviously, to the mainstream media, the Wilson outburst is headline news but not the ACORN tax evasion/prostitution cover-up story....of course not....that would only remind America that their so-called President and former Community Organizer is in bed with ACORN.

By the way, if you get to watch a video replay of the Wilson outburst, you will notice that after the "boos" from the crowd Nancy Pelosi turns to Joe Biden and says "piece of sh_t". What a classy public servant, huh?

EvanSINY said...

Look how the corrupt media is not focusing on the government backed ACORN (a liberal, disgusting, evil oranization) that the President is part of and they are focusing on Mr. Wilson, who spoke the truth and Mr. Hussein pointed with his left hand (the devil is left handed) and the evil Nancy said an evil comment to Mr. Biden. How horrible these evil people are destroying our country. A country with turning that back to God will become the devil's playground and destroy us, Mr. Keyes is a man filled with the Holy Spirit who is a real child of God, thanks be to God.

I heard the prostitute/pimp thing on the Lou Dobbs Show (AM radio)this afternoon. WOW... and to think they are such a reputable institution and help so many poor underprivileged people around the country who were NEVER able to vote when ol' mean and nasty prejudiced George Bush stole the election... you know the ones that were dead or were paid to register to vote more than once or register under more than one name... and we are the crazy ones because we are birthers...

Some people say that it is not right that King Hussein did not even bother to show his pretty brown skin in NY today. They say he is in DC at the Pentagon - because there has not been enough time spent recognizing their loss AND the cost factor (you know, his security and entourage, etc.) I wonder how much it costs he and Michelle to go shopping when they are overseas, or how much it costed when they went on their dinner date a while back TO NEW YORK... I wonder if Larry Sinclair knows how much Obammy spends on a date. I guess the cocaine is included now?

I think the military should turn their backs on him every time he pokes his nasty face around the corner. Seems as though they would be tired of taking orders from someone who is OBVIOUSLY NOT their or our president. He should not be allowed to be a part of honoring ANY person that perished on 9/11. He sets terrorists free and is probably a plant himself - a one man sleeper cell...

GOD bless the families and friends who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. GOD bless America. May she learn the lesson she has so carelessly subjected herself to learn and come out of it a stronger and still free nation, ONE NATION UNDER GOD!

I would like to join Joe Wilson on the floor of the House of Representatives, but I need help to get there. Oklahoma is a 2 party state. I believe both parties are now "Ichobod" and will run as an Independent if I have to. I have recently contacted the Constitution Party for their consideration, but I am open to whoever shares my views and will join forces with me in my efforts. Rather than ramble here, I ask you to check out my site and assist in anyway that you can. Thank you. http://www.fracamerica.org/party.html

Oo Oo
Joe! Follow the lead of BO and invite him over for a beer!!!! Nothing like having an ice cold brewski outside on the lawn to talk things over, eh?

Time to pop-a-top.

Judi Lake said...

Thank you for a great post, Mr. Keyes! I don't think Joe Wilson has a thing to apologize for - true, his emotions got the best of him but it's time to relieve America from all of the corruption and that must begin on Capital Hill - God speed!

Angelopeter said...

God bless you Mr Keyes!!! I will keep you in my prayers, and ask St. Michael, the guardian of us catholics, to protect you. I dont know how you're still alive!

I thought you were the only politician who spoke the raw truth, until I heard that outburst by rep. Joe Wilson which ripped through the house. ( however he seems to lack your elegant articulation of Truth,lol)

Nonetheless, there could not have been a better thing to say. "YOU LIE!" and what was funnier was Obama's flustered response, " Thats not true."

Please forgive my finding some comical relief in that event, I know it is no laughing matter. Im afraid that 2010 will be too late Mr. Keyes. this man needs to be stopped, being a neighbor to the north of my U.S brethren I can only try to speak to my American relatives about what this man's evil agenda really entails. We have enough problems in our own country with an upcoming election, which will elect a man that have an agenda to unite our countries. The northamerican union, with the amero currnecy.

You said it all and I thank you! Keep speaking out I know I will! We can help Joe on twitter too by trending #standwithjoe

What would be great, necessary even, would be for patriots to call-in to Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, etc and talk about how great Joe Wilson's "outburst" was. Then say they will never vote for another Democrat or Republican again. Not even the recently elevated Queen of the GOP, Sarah Palin. And ask them to explain why anyone in congress should be reelected. Unless of course they switch parties in order to escape the tentacles of the oligarchs.

We need to promote the American Independent Party or the Constitution Party. Afterall, does it really matter if you vote for a Reuplican? Are they really for limited government, securing the borders, the free market (without fed involvement), etc?

I suggest any current member who switches parties before 2010 gets a reprieve and is worthy of support. All others MUST go. If all who attended town hall meetings, opposed health care reform in any venue, wants lower taxes, opposes wars of convenience, and attended the 9-12 rally directed their efforts toward a third (second, really) party this could be the second American Revolution. A revolution that avoids a single shot being fired.

Now is the time. The momentum is here. We can still vote to effect change. If we hesitate the window may close faster than we think. And then...what? That has to be our question. If absolutely nothing changes by way of options in the next election, how can we possibly believe things will get better? The groundswell is here and now. Let's build on it.
