Oh, and he’s running for the US Senate.
You may recall hearing something about this around a year ago when I worked as a writer for the woebegone Examiner.com (before I was canned for excessive truth telling that interfered with the Examiner’s conservative money-making business model), I tracked down a story about Bill Looman, a tin-plated dictator who runs the North Georgia Militia. He caught the eye of the national media by driving around in his little business trucks that carried a sign saying “No Hiring Until Obama’s Gone.”
Catch up, if you care to, by reading these links.
This news story ran on November 23, 2011,
What a nice, sincere young man. Nothing racist or Islamophobic about that, right? Of course not. Here’s what he wrote on his Facebook Page at about the same time. (And we apologize for the all caps. That’s how he writes.
PRIOR TO THE ELECTIONS OF 2008, I PAID CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE PRIMARIES. MY GUT INSTINCT WAS THAT OUR NEW (UNKNOWN) DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE WAS ACTUALLY A MUSLIM. A FOLLOWER OF ISLAM THAT DID NOT HAVE OUR COUNTRY’S BEST INTEREST IN MIND.
AFTER HIS ELECTION AND INAUGURATION, IT BECAME QUICKLY OBVIOUS, WITH THE RELEASE OF THE D. H. S. MEMO THAT STARTED RETRAINING THE AGENCIES PERSONNEL THAT VETERANS WERE LIKELY TO BE RECRUITED BY RIGHT WING FRINGE GROUPS. THAT MEMO WAS BLATANT AND OBVIOUS WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION THAT PROVED TO ME THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION WAS MOVING TOWARD TRYING TO CHANGE PUBLIC OPINION OF OUR MOST PATRIOTIC FACTION OF OUR SOCIETY AND PAINT THEM TO LOOK LIKE BAD PEOPLE THAT NEEDED TO BE FEARED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AND EVENTUALLY THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. AS A MARINE VETERAN…….. I TOOK THAT AS AN INSULT!
THAT MEMO BY ITSELF, MAY VERY WELL HAVE BEEN A MINOR HICCUP FOR THE ADMINISTRATION, IF HIS GROUP OF APPOINTEES HAD NOT ALSO STARTED TO TRY AND WHITEWASH THE REPUTATION OF THE GROUP THAT HAD ATTACKED OUR NATION ON 9/11. HE STARTED DICTATING THAT ISLAM WAS A MISUNDERSTOOD AND PEACEFUL RELIGION, THAT 9/11 ATTACKS WERE NOT A VILE ATTACK BUT A “MAN MADE DISASTER”, AND THAT ISLAM WAS TO BE ASSIMILATED INTO OUR SOCIETY, WHETHER WE LIKED IT OR NOT.
HE ALSO ISSUED A SERIES OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT MADE HIS HISTORICAL PRESENCE ON EARTH, OFF LIMITS TO THE PUBLIC AND SET THE PLAYING FIELD FOR EXECUTIVE RULE, BY HIM, THROUGH MARTIAL LAW. SIMILAR EXECUTIVE ORDERS WERE SIGNED BY JOHN F KENNEDY DURING THE “COLD WAR” ERA BECAUSE OF THE FEAR THAT RUSSIA AND THE UNITED STATES MAY ENGAGE IN A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE. THOSE SAME EXECUTIVE ORDERS WERE LATER SET ASIDE AS THE “COLD WAR” FEARS ABATED.
THOSE INITIAL STEPS THAT OUR NEW PRESIDENT TOOK, ALL PAINTED A PICTURE TO ME, THAT MADE IT OBVIOUS OF HIS TRUE INTENTIONS. FROM THAT POINT ON I PRAYED THAT I WAS WRONG AND JUST MISUNDERSTOOD WHAT HE WAS ATTEMPTING. THEN HE AND HIS ADMINISTRATION CONTINUED THAT HAMMER AMERICA WITH AND ONSLAUGHT OF LEGISLATION THAT WAS UNPOPULAR, ARROGANTLY INDICATED TO OUR LONG TIME ALLIES THAT HE COULD CARE LESS ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEM THAT HAD BEEN FORGED THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORY, AND HE WENT ON AN APOLOGY TOUR THROUGH THE MIDDLE EAST. HE ALSO DID ILLOGICAL THINGS SUCH AS SUE STATES IN HIS ATTEMPT TO KEEP THE SOUTHERN BORDERS OPEN FOR EASY ENTRY, SHUT DOWN PRODUCTION OF OIL OFF OF OUR SHORES, ATTEMPTED TO SLOW OUR ENERGY PRODUCTION THROUGH THE E. P. A. WHEN CAP AND TRADE LEGISLATION FAILED…. AND RUINED OUR ECONOMY ANY WAY HE COULD TO FURTHER BRING OUR COUNTRY TO ITS KNEES OR HUMBLE AMERICAN AND CHRISTIAN PRIDE.
JUST AFTER I READ EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT HE HAD SIGNED, PUTTING IN PLACE POWERS THAT HE COULD EASILY ASSUME THROUGH MARTIAL LAW, I STARTED TO GET PREPARED. THE FOLLOWING LIST ARE SOME OF THE THINGS I HAVE DONE TO PREPARE MYSELF, MY FAMILY, MY COMMUNITY, AND YES….. EVEN MY HOME STATE OF GEORGIA.
START SEEKING AND NETWORKING WITH PATRIOTS OF LIKE MIND. SEEK OUT AND FORGE FRIENDSHIPS WITH SURVIVAL SKILLS. THIS INCLUDED GROUPS SUCH AS OATH KEEPERS, MILITIAS, AND POLITICAL GROUPS THAT APPEARED TO HAVE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS CORE MESSAGE AND CONSTITUTION IN THEIR BASIC PHILOSOPHY. BUILT AND STOCKED A FISH POND. STARTED STORING FOOD. SELLING WEAPONS THAT WERE COOL BUT WERE ODD CALIBERS AND WOULD BE HARD TO GET AMMUNITION FOR. BOUGHT NEW WEAPONS TO REPLACE THE ONES I SOLD AND STOCK PILED AMMUNITION. HONED MY HUNTING SKILLS AND LEARNED HOW TO COMPLETELY PROCESS ALL MY CATCH. PERFORMED NEEDED MAINTENANCE ON MY HOME. BECAME POLITICALLY ACTIVE IN MY COMMUNITY AND STARTED TO FORGE FRIENDSHIPS WITH OLD AND NEW FRIENDS THAT HAD SKILLS THAT MAY BE NEEDED IN THE FUTURE.
STARTED FURTHER TRAINING OTHERS AS THEY APPEARED WAKE UP TO PRESIDENTS PERCEIVED INTENTIONS WITH MARKSMANSHIP TRAINING, POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS, AND YES, EVEN RELIGIOUS DISCUSSIONS. DIVESTED IN STOCKS AND PURCHASED MORE PROPERTY. DIVESTED IN RETIREMENT FUNDS AND MOVED THE MONEY TO SAVINGS TO PROTECT AGAINST WALL STREET VOLATILITY.
PURCHASED AN EMERGENCY POWER SOURCE AND AND FUEL TO SUPPLY THAT SOURCE. THIS POWER SOURCE WILL BE USED TO DRAW WATER FROM OUR WELL AND KEEP OUR COLD STORAGE RUNNING FOR AS LONG AS FEASIBLE.
AS I OBSERVE THE FURTHER ACTIONS OF THIS ADMINISTRATION, I HAVE BECOME MORE SURE THAT MY “GUT INSTINCT” WAS CORRECT. I ALSO HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE ANGRY AT MYSELF FOR BEING RIGHT! WHY HAS HE TAKEN OUR COUNTRY IN THIS DIRECTION? MY ANSWER IS SIMPLE…….. HE HAS BEEN TRAINED FOR THIS AND HE IS A MARXIST/ISLAMIC TOOL TO TEAR APART OUR ONCE GREAT NATION.
SO IN LIGHT OF WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, DONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS, I DARE YOU TO PREPARE AND PROTECT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND COUNTRY. OUR FOUNDERS WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY NOW….. SO THE T SHIRT SAYS!
Well, we did our best, using sources on the ground in Georgia to expose this dirtbag for the racist, Islamophobic, cowardly (read the “A Failed Raid” link above) worm that he is. His decision to withhold hiring had nothing to do with Obama or his policies, other than the fact that he hates the blackness of Obama’s skin and what he has convinced himself (and others) is the place of Obama’s birth and Obama’s religion.
On his current FB page, he has this quote:
LIBERALS THAT SPEW HATE IN MY DIRECTION ARE ENTERTAINMENT FOR ME. LIKE MY CATS ENJOY PLAYING WITH MICE. I JUST WISH THEY WOULD COME UP WITH SOME NEW THINGS TO SAY. MAYBE SOMETHING JUST A TAD BIT MORE BELIEVABLE.
OK. How’s this.
Looman’s “No Hiring Until Obama’s Gone” pledge in November 2011 lasted all of four months. In March 2012, he broke his pledge and hired someone. Yay!
Here’s a copy of the gentleman’s first pay stub.
But still, Looman’s claiming he will NOT hire anyone until Obama’s gone!
Check out his campaign video. (We mentioned he’s running for Senate, right? Yeah. We did.)
Bill Looman, owner of US Cranes LLC, joined fellow conservatives on the Patriot Field of Dreams on May 19th, 2012, at the Rally for Common Sense in Holts Summit, Missouri. Looman “went on strike” refusing to hire any more employees until after Obama leaves office to protest the onerous regulations of the current administration.
Of course, May 19 is AFTER he hired David…
Notice the sidearm? Golly. He’s a tough guy. Except when friends are being arrested. Then he runs like a rabbit. (Again, see the “Failed Raid” link.)
Of course, I wasn’t just going to take a source’s word for it, so I had a bit of an e-mail exchange with my old pal Bill Saturday morning.
WTF, Sarge! I thought that hiring was suspended until Obama’s gone. This is sure gonna make you look silly, bringing in a new boy, part of your militia, this David Lanier after you went on the Tee Vee and said you wouldn’t be hiring anybody.
Any comments for the record? Or am I going to have to go scouting through your background again?
You’ll recall I’m pretty good at that.
Hello Bill,Your source is a liar.
Have a nice day, my liberal friend.

SO…. YOUR SOURCE COMMITTED A FELONY HUH?
Bill LoomanUS CRANE, LLC
Which felony would that be, Bill? I have proof you hired a new employee. Did you or didn’t you? And not answering is not an option because the story is going to be written and disseminated to every TV station you were ever on… so let’s hear your explanation, then you can arrest my source and have him charged for your make believe felony.
Tell me your source.
Bill LoomanUS CRANE, LLC
Boy, this is gonna be embarrassing. Here, you put your face on the Tee Vee and told everyone that that bad old Mooslim Obammer made it IM POSSIBLE for you to hire someone. And then, in the end of March, you go and hire someone.
Confirm that (REDACTED)l is your source Bill. He broke a federal law and posted the info on his web sight. Boy this is good. David is a part time employee and has been for a couple years. I rarely use him but but when the economy does an uptick i will be able to give him more hours.Boy…. this is gonna get good Bill.
Bill LoomanUS CRANE, LLC
Well, we’ll publish this, we’ll send it to the various TV stations that ran the “no hiring until Obama’s gone” nonsense, and we’ll let folks decide what they want to do about it.
