Ban Political Correctness

Isn’t it curious how you can see a pattern of things after a while? Call it silly, but you really CAN identify an airline terrorist. Anyone can. You really don’t need to be in the CIA, FBI, or work for Homeland Security either. Since the first US airline terrorist attack in 1988, every terrorist bomber has been a foreign-born Muslim man with brown eyes and dark hair. Ironically, half of them have also been named “Mohammed.”

This guy was Nigerian, a Muslim named Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and he paid cash for a one way ticket. Oh yes, he had NO luggage. See any warning flags yet? You could have spotted this guy if you searched the passenger list for “Muslim males.”

Oh that’s right, they aren’t called “acts of terrorism” but rather “man-made disasters” instead. Let’s not be too hasty and jump to conclusions. The “alleged” man (that’s Obama talk for the word “BOMBER”) is a “suspect.” (We don’t want to offend our enemies and call them what they really are: “TERRORISTS”).

President Obama doesn’t like to admit that the United States is at war with radical Muslims. After all, his father was a Muslim – remember? Is there a link? No, couldn’t be. Obama was a member of Reverend Wright’s Church of Hate America for 20 years. Isn’t it peculiar how Obama has not been able to find a new church in Washington, DC since getting sworn in as President? He’s probably been too busy hiring Communists, radicals, and Marxists to work in his administration.

Carl Rove claims that Obama is “pretending” that there is no war going on with radical Muslims in this country. But what does he know? He was only the advisor to the President who actually prevented terrorist attacks against the United States.

One thing for sure, there have been three (3) TERRORIST attacks in the United States since Obama took office.

  • 13 Killed in cold blood at Fort Hood by a Muslim terrorist
  • 1 soldier killed in Little Rock, Arkansas by a Muslim
  • Attempted mass murder of an airliner by another Muslim

Obama cannot blame these acts on a previous administration. They are a result of his political and ideological philosophy. Why wait for a successful “catastrophic break” terrorist attack before admitting that his policies are wrong and need changing? These are acts of WAR and are not crimes. Why haven’t we sent the latest bomber to Gitmo where he belongs? Why hasn’t the government stopped the catch and release policies at Gitmo? Do we even have a Gitmo policy? Do you know what you are doing? Do you even care more about protecting Americans or our enemies?

At best our National Security has been bungled. Stop using political correctness so as not to offend. These people are trying to kill us. Obama, the buck stops in YOUR office. So far your grade is a “F-.”

National Security

Well here we are celebrating Christmas and an attempted Christmas Bomber. Our President won’t even call a terrorist a “TERRORIST.” His lack of immediate response is disgusting. Was he afraid to jump to a conclusion? The lag time between the failed bombing and Obama’s lame first comments was incredible. What IS Obama doing to stop Terrorism?

Initially, the white House supported Janet Napolitano’s statements that the “System was working.” That was stupid and it took the White House a long while to realize that the American public wasn’t buying that argument.

How did this bomber get an American Visa after his own father warned us that he was a danger? This guy was involved in writing terrorist blogs over five years ago. How could we let a jihadist on a plane headed for America? Wasn’t his name on a no-fly-list? What the Hell is going on?

This should be a Major Red flag to All Americans. Obama’s non-decisive stand towards this event says volumes about his ideological views on terrorism and feelings on thwarting it. Obama’s policies are a systematic failure. He cannot blame this on the previous administration. He refers to terrorists as “man-made-disasters.” How blind can anyone be?

We were lucky this time. The only thing that prevented the blast was a faulty detonator and some courageous passengers on the plane. This guy shouldn’t have even been on the plane – let alone with 80 grams of explosives.

Obama views this as a public relations nightmare. It’s worse than that Mr. President. Counter-terrorism in America is now a joke. We know that new bombers are on the way. Bush was criticized for his strong rigid ideological views on terrorism. It seems like Obama ALSO has his own strong ideological views on terrorism that are NOT realistic. Obama’s views do NOT match the reality that these people hate Americans and are trying to kill us.

The bomber burned himself during his attack on us. He was supposed to die. Now we are considering giving this attempted (not suspected) mass murder skin grafts. Are we $%^# stupid or what? Americans ARE NOT SAFE under this administration. That explains the recent exponential sales of firearms and ammunition in this country.

Action To Take
Don’t let the White House get away with their attempted “snow job.” Let them know you demand action and deserve better National Security than what they are providing us now.

How Safe Are We Really?

The White House is supporting Janet Napolitano (head of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS]) in her remarks regarding the "foiled" terrorist attack on a recent airlines flight. Her basic position is that the system worked to save us. Oh really? If it was such a great system, then how come you didn't anticipate the attack in the first place?

In reality, the attack was thwarted by a faulty detonator and some civilian passengers! Napolitano claims that this is proof that her agency is doing everything just right. Give me a break here! You've got to be kidding. That's White House spin (alias for BS) and we know it!

Napolitano has overlooked the obvious fact that the terrorist was able to successfully get a bomb onto plane and was almost successful in killing more innocent people and bringing down an airliner. Does the Department of Homeland Security claim responsibility for missing the detection of 80 grams of explosives sewn into the guy's underpants? The DHS had nothing to do with stopping the failed terrorist airplane attack.

Let's face it, there is no shortage of suicide terrorists who are willing to die to become martyrs. It's wrong to believe that the DHS is preventing any attacks. That's just wrong and we know it. The Christmas bomber is the example.

It's bad enough having to take your shoes off to get through security. What now? Will Napolitano require all passengers to bare their underwear as well? At best, she's incompetent and should be replaced with someone who can actually protect Americans!

We Need REAL Jobs

We have tried the "Shovel Ready Jobs" approach and look what it got us! The highest unemployment rate in 30 years. Does this give you a lot of confidence in the government promises? Wake up, it shouldn't. To add insult to injury, the bulk of the Stimulus won't be spent until just before the 2010 elections. Gee, what a coincidence!

History tells us that infrastructure spending will not revive the economy - it never has. It didn't work 76 years ago under FDR. It took World War II to stop the Great Depression.

Congress keeps repeating bad history over and over again. This time under the "leadership" of President Obama. The House of Representatives just passed a $154 Billion jobs bill to help our unemployed. Wasn't that what the Stimulus was all about? Obama just announced that he will take the returned "loan" money from TARP and re-spend $50 Billion to create "shovel ready green jobs." This is just more infrastructure jobs in disguise. They just don't learn now do they? Besides, the TARP money was a loan - not the President's personal slush fund to do whatever he wants. It's OUR tax dollars and they should be applied towards the national deficit instead of this. He has no right to do this. Why doesn't someone speak out?

We need to try something different. This is the technology age. Construction jobs won't save the economy. We need to manufacture and produce goods in America - Not in China, India, or Malaysia. We need to create technology jobs using fiber optics and the latest microchips. Unfortunately, the administration is still thinking in the "Dark Ages." We need to stop the job losses to third world countries.

Re-funding Jobless Funds?

Our Congress is once again thinking of re-funding the unemployment funds. We REALLY need to ask ourselves "Is this a good idea?"

Sounds heartless, but before you jump to conclusions, hear this out. We are a nation of caring individuals. We always step-up and help deserving people when they are in trouble and need assistance. More than 25 states are running out of unemployment insurance funds and are seeking Federal government help. Many analysts believe that if bailed out, it won't have a long lasting impact on state coffers. That's because typical employers pay into a state insurance fund through a payroll tax and eventually replenish these trust funds.

In direct conflict with this idea most agree that this is not a good thing to do when the unemployment rate is over 10 %. Raising taxes at a time when no one can afford it is self-defeating.

What no one talks about is the fact that by extending benefits, people may become lazy and stop job hunting altogether. Why job hunt in this economy when you can expect a check every week?

A moral dilemma. This blogger has unemployed family members who have no unemployment benefits and they have sought-out creative means for survival. They do part-time work whenever possible. They do bartering for the necessities. Trading services for others. It's working! They are not living in the street. It's not fun, but it's doable.

If they can do it, why not the rest of the unemployed? Is it worth trying?

Time for Committment

Ok, we're almost through the holidays and it's time to make a New Year's Resolution. It's easy to forget just where we stand in America when our attention is directed in 20 different directions at the same time.

OK you say, you're only one person. That's exactly why you need to make the comittment to do something positive in 2010. Please don't stay distracted. Take a moment to make the plunge. There IS power in numbers!

Remember it's all about priorities. That's what life is - a series of priorities. Time for work, time for kids, time for wife and family...

Now it's time for America. This needs to be "bumped" higher on YOUR priority list. You need to join a Tea Party or a 912 Project in your local area. Did you know that 41% of Americans have a favorable view of the Tea Party? Only 24% view Tea Party activists unfavorably. Ironically, 45% hold strong negative views towards the Democrats!

Tea Party activists helped play a role in getting rid of Governor Jon Corzine in the Democratic stronghold of New Jersey. They came within 1 percentage point of electing a third party candidate in New York's 23rd district and helped Bob McDonnell win. So don't say you can't make a difference.

Congressional elections are 10 months away. Their primaries begin early this spring. It is time to act. Be a Patriot and start fighting for the return of YOUR country.

Action To Take
Google Tea Party or 912 Project. Locate one in your area. Contact them or register with them online. Volunteer your time and services. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Disgruntled Congress

Both DEMs and GOPs are getting grumpy with the healthcare schedule. It seems that OUR (we use that term lightly) representatives can’t wait to leave DC. Unfortunately, the vote is re-scheduled for 8:00 am tomorrow morning. That’s 11 hours earlier than originally scheduled.

This schedule change allows US Senators to join their families just before Christmas. Remember, that the “deadline” was purely artificial to begin with. The REAL reason for it was to get ObamaCare jammed through before any of the 60 Democratic votes cave under pressure from home constituents. The reason for the deadline ensures that the vote will take place before anyone gets cold feet and flips their vote.

To show how made-up this is, this is the first time since 1963 when the chamber met to consider funding for funding the Vietnam War.

This act does not take into consideration what the American public at large wants. When passed everyone will be forced into buying health insurance. Since when can the government tell you to buy anything? What’s keeping Congress from tell you to buy a Chevy?

HealthCare Passage Eminent

With another arbitrary White House deadline looming, the US Senate is working overtime to stuff ObamaCare through the Senate. Harry Reid just blocked any further discussions. So a vote is expected soon.

Now that the DEMs have extorted/bribed the remaining two votes required to beat a filibuster, they are ready to pass a one party bill that will cost American familes (under age 30) $3, 341 per year! Oh, don’t forget that if you want free abortions, that’s OK. Illegal alien? No problem. However, if you are a woman under age 50 and want a mammogram, forget it!

Instead of trying to resolve the healthcare issue, once and for all, Congress decided to be reckless again and ram through a partisan vote just before Christmas. Frankly, Congress does not know what’s in the bill, not that they are bothering to pretend to even care. All this despite the fact that the majority of Americans do NOT want a government controlled health care system.

The secretive way this bill was produced helped to make it destructively unpopular. Americans now realize that this legislation will permanently expand the entitlement state. Congress’s only intent was to pass anything and try and clean it up later. Why the panic?

This legislation is supposed to reduce healthcare costs. Everyone doubts this. Insurance costs will rise for everyone in small businesses to families. Can we afford it just now in this economy? The truth is that no one really knows how much ObamaCare will actually cost. It won’t be cheap.

Does it eliminate waste? The answer is no. Does it address lawsuits? No again. There is no tort reform in the bill. Does it help or hurt any individual group of citizens. Answer: Yes, it takes $500 billion away from Medicare. Senior citizens pay the brunt to offset the costs of adding new individuals.

A centralized system means fewer choices for all involved. Ironically, Congress is not required to participate. Go figure? It must be really great if they don’t want to participate. So instead of actually solving the healthcare problem, we will have a vast expansion of federal control over our lives. This is a precedent. Never before has economic legislation of this magnitude been forced through on a purely partisan vote. America will be paying for this for decades to come. Merry Christmas!

The Time Has Come for a National Coalition

Here is the message from the national 912 Coalition:

Why a National "Coalition" is Needed... Now!
A coalition is an alliance among individuals and groups, during which they cooperate in joint action, each in his own self interest.

Joining forces together for a common cause is the way to do it. A coalition empowers the individual and the member groups. Do YOU:
  • Believe in the Constitution and The Bill of Rights?
  • Believe in the Principles and Values they represent?
  • Want to make a difference?
The National 912 Coalition fills the void between the large national organization which focus on building their own organizations and smaller local activist groups working directly in their local communities. The coalition is made up of individual citizens and local grassroots groups... it is not sponsored or supported by any Political Party, PAC, Washington Lobbying Groups, or IRS Regulated 501(c) organizations.

The 912 Coalition empowers the local activist and groups by allowing them to work directly and indirectly with similar groups and individuals across the country without losing their individual personalities or organizational structures.

Unite or Die - Preserving the Grassroots Movement
As the larger National Organizations look to co-opt as much of the movement as they can... drawing resources and manpower from smaller local groups... the smaller (and more effective) local groups like 912 and Tea Party Groups are weakened.

By united as a coalition, and having a "National" voice and the ability to attract more supporters through a national awareness campaign, and the collective resources of the coalition, local groups across the country can become empower.

No One Group Can Do It Alone!
While there have been many local groups that have formed across the country as a result of the 912 Project and the Tea party Movement, no single group or individual will ever be able achieve the multitude of goals and objectives the "movement" has come to represent.

Groups must be able to work together to achieve more faster, it is time for a coalition... and it was because of this need The Coalition Was Born! The Coalition Community allows their voices to be combined with others across the country who share the same goals and objectives even the smallest of local groups can represent the hundreds of thousands across the country!

The 912 Coalition is a place were you can find like-minded Americans looking to take action and join together to restore the Constitutional Principles and Values that our great country was founded on.

Become a supporter of The Coalition and help us Take Back America One Community at a Time....Click Here to become a Coalition Supporter.

Help restore our American Republic and become a Coalition supporter today!

Action To Take
Sign up, and get active. Don't let these clowns continue to ruin our country. There IS strngth in numbers! Unite.

Incumbents ARE the Problem

Here is a note from the 912 Project. Read it and make this your commitment.

The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt. And I mean both Houses and I mean both major parties. I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy, but, as a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch to ever disgrace our Nation.

In November of 2010 the entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election; all 435 of them. One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election. Vote every incumbent out. And I mean every one of them. No matter their Party affiliation.

Let's start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people who have absolutely no experience in running that body, with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents. Let's make them understand that they work for us. They are answerable to us and they simply have to run that body with some common sense.

Two years later, in 2012, vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out. We can do the same thing in 2014 and, by that time we will have put all new people in that body as well.

We, the People, have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully. That's what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.

I am also suggesting term limits on the NEW BUNCH -- 8 YEARS FOR REPRESENTATIVES two terms that’s all.

AND

12 YEARS [2 terms] FOR SENATORS. NO EXCEPTIONS. THE LONGER THEY STAY IN OFFICE THE MORE POWER THEY GET AND THEY LOVE IT AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET RE-ELECTED.

WE HAVE TERM LIMITED THE PRESIDENT – NOW LET'S TERM LIMIT THE LEGISLATORS.

And we do away with their Special Retirement system and their health program (they should have same health programs everyone else in America does). When they are through serving their country they go back to being private citizens. They should view their service as a privilege; after all it was designed to be a part time job to represent the voice of the people, NOT the special interest groups and those who can do favors for them.

The Progressive “Religion”

In case you’re wondering what direction the country is headed, you need to check out the Progressive Pledge of Allegiance. Here it is:

I pledge allegiance to the Earth and all the life which it supports,
One planet, in our care, irreplaceable, with sustenance and respect for all
."

Notice the absence of ANY references to God or Flag whatsoever. It seems that Progressives have replaced “God” and “Flag” with “Earth” instead. By eliminating God from the equation they don’t have to worry about any of those pesky references like “in God We Trust”, or “God Bless America” that get in the way of the NEW religion. Progressives make planet Earth the new religion by focusing on the problem of global warming. Forget Christ, or Mohamed, or Buddha.

Our Founding Fathers actually built the framework of this country with God as a basis. Current history books ignore this fact because there are literally “Word Police” who have eliminated this from text books. It’s true, all the big textbook publishing companies admit employing people who screen potential new textbooks for offensive words and images. This is more than political correctness. For example, you cannot show a picture of a woman cooking in the kitchen. That’s offensive to women. But, it’s OK to show a woman in a textbook operating a jackhammer. That’s NOT offensive. And the word God is never mentioned in modern textbooks.

The “Goreicle” (Al Gore the new earth savior) waves-off the ClimateGate scandal and says that those emails uncovered say or prove nothing. There is no conspiracy that he would profit from. He refuses to answer ANY logical arguments or ANY questions about Global Warming. Why is this? Because he can’t! Instead, the “debate” is over and there is nothing to discuss. The opponents are really people who still believe that the earth is flat “Flat Earthers” oppose their control. (Notice how they always label opponents, a familiar tactic – so we will use it too). The “Climate Cultists” (our label – using their tactic) are nothing more than a state sponsored religion trying to discredit or ignore dissenters because simply because they oppose the grand plan.

The Progressive agenda is permeating every facet of your life and we never seemed to notice before. Now we do, because the pace of this infiltration is ramped-up to breathtaking speed. Now it seems that EVERYTHING is a convenient crisis. We owe this to the new Administration. Progressives want total control over you and your life. Government healthcare is a good example. What could be more intrusive than to control YOU personal health? The record breaking spending (23% increase since DEMs took office), is all about control. There are more entitlements, more earmarks to special interests and special projects, than ever before.

Action To Take
Join a Tea Party or 912 Project in your local area. Become informed and politically active. Participate in your local community organization to get your government back. Tell friends and neighbors about your quest. Get them interested and get them to join.

Arrogance of Power

Our government now thinks that it has the power to tell American citizens that they have to buy ObamaCare insurance or face fines or jail time! Purchase of government healthcare will be mandatory. This is a first (a precedent) and this is also unconstitutional. Proponents claim that they do in fact have the power to do so and present the following argument. They say that if states can regulate citizens and “force” them to buy car insurance, that they too can “force” YOU to buy government healthcare. However, this is a comparison of apples and oranges (unlike items). Here’s why; States can indeed obligate you to buy car insurance if YOU CHOOSE to drive a car. However, you may also elect not to drive a vehicle as well – thus giving you a CHOICE to buy or not to buy car insurance. Consequently, you are NOT forced into buying anything.

The government healthcare proponents argue it’s the same thing with government healthcare. But they are forgetting one major thing. We are not offered ANY choice whatsoever. We can either buy government health insurance or face cash fines OR imprisonment for non-compliance. THIS IS NOT A CHOICE!!

The government cannot force you to buy their health insurance because this is unconstitutional. It deprives you of your liberties and freedom of choice. This is nothing more than a government takeover of YOUR healthcare. Where does the Constitution grant this power? It does NOT!

Since Congress and the President are ignoring the majority of Americans and what we REALLY want, why should we recognize them? Seriously! What would the government do if the majority of its citizenry refused to obey or recognize their “authority” to pass this legislation? If Congress can ignore its own citizens, why can’t the citizens ignore Congress? Why go along with this tyrannical legislation when we don’t want it, don’t like it, or don’t believe it to be legal? What would happen if we openly ignored their threats? If we all offered total disobedience, what could they do? Would they order Marshall Law to enforce it? The government is on the record for ignoring the Federal Drug laws with regards to Marijuana in California. Citizens have ignored that law. Maybe we should find out!

The government has no right whatsoever, to regulate our bodies or our health. This is just another case of Social Justice being carried to extreme. What about our FREEDOMS?

2010 Omnibus Bill

It’s unbelievable! But Congress has just created a new spending bill for the 2010 fiscal year. The total for the new bill is $ 1.5 Trillion dollars! It is actually worse than the 2009 Omnibus bill, if you can believe it! Congress has not learned anything from their experience in Town Hall meetings last summer.

The new bill spends like we have no debt. Here are a few examples of the earmarks in the new Omnibus bill:
  • $2.9 Billion dollars for surgery in outer space.
  • $30,000 for the Woodstock Festival.
  • $3.4 Million for the Hawaiian bus program.
  • $500,000 for The Botanical Research Institute in Texas to enhance collections.
All in all, Congress wastes over $4.3 Billion dollars on pork. These earmark programs are unneeded, unwanted, and unnecessary. Why do politicians keep believing that the national debt is nothing to worry about? Do you want to keep these people in office any longer? Should they remain in office spending like this with our national debt destroying our country?

Action To Take
Let Congress know that you are concerned about our current debt. Tell them that the new Omnibus bill wastes too much in your tax money.

Three Party System-Republicans beware!
American voters were asked if there was a Tea Party candidate running, how would you vote. Here are their responses:
  • Vote for the Democrat... 36%
  • Vote for Republican... 18%
  • Vote for Tea Party candidate 23%
  • Undecided... 14%
Right now, this is good for DEMs and bad for GOPs. Once again, the independents will probably decide if this is the REAL thing.

Tea Parties Dead?

Hey we haven’t heard from any Tea Parties lately. They must have dried up and gone away. Congress knew that would happen. They were right to continue on “Their” agenda for America. Or were they?

Well there haven’t been any of those noisy, rude, anti-government protests lately. Have there? Tea Parties were just a passing fancy that made a lot of noise and tried to embarrass our Congress. Troublemakers!

But wait, what’s that coming over the horizon? Humm… it seems that the Tea Parties have been busy doing community organizing. Sound familiar? Yes, we have begun to form PACs, and get our own activists busy preparing for the 2010 elections. Our goal is to rein in all that “ugly” “un-American” anger we demonstrated last summer in those “Astro-turf” protests around the country – including Washington, DC.

This isn’t about beating the Democrats out of office. No that would just be a start. The Republicans who have been reckless in spending under George Bush and who have forsaken conservative values are also our targets! You know the ones. They are thinking that it’s still OK to get entitlements for their local districts. They still “think” it’s OK to add pork to bills and waste your tax dollars when the US deficit is in the tank for the next 2-3 generations. Well, they are in for a surprise. This isn’t a promise. We are working on a “Change WE can Believe in” not the one we are currently getting from the Fascists in Washington.

Call Obama’s Bluff

In a recent article we described the Administration’s side-step policy to negate Congress and regulate carbon emissions by letting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) do it. Congress (of course) is oblivious to this possibility and continues along their merry way ignoring Americans and doing their own agenda on healthcare.

After a careful look into the administration’s strategy using the EPA to side-step congress, it became clear that the EPA would have to follow the guidelines set by the Clean Air Act. This is an exhaustive process. If the EPA wants to regulate carbon dioxide, they would have to do the following:
  • Determine the technologies that are available and determine which was most cost effective
  • Determine which of the source categories should be regulated and how.
  • Write the regulations.
  • Require each state to implement a version of the regulations into each respective state’s implementation plan.
This would take a long time because at each step, the EPA would have to (by law) seek public commitment, respond to it, hold meetings, and determine the impacts and legal challenges. This is a long, slow process. Chances are that it would not be completed before the end of Obama’s term.

To make things more interesting, we should ask the EPA to regulate ALL major sources of the newly defined pollutant (carbon dioxide). This would entail enforcing their new regulations on millions of households across America! This will never happen. The EPA would be doomed to failure. There would be too many violators to enforce! The Cloward and Pivon method of breaking the system would work quite well on the EPA!

Action To Take
Have Congress drop Cap & Trade completely and let the EPA try and enforce the carbon emissions!

A Second Stimulus

Is he crazy or just plain stupid? Obama is now talking about a second Stimulus to create jobs. Yeah, sure, wasn't that the whole point of the ORIGINAL Stimulus? Is that what the "brain trust" came up with in their conference on jobs the other day? Did you notice that those who attended had no experience in the private sector creating jobs?

Obama did not invite the Chamber of Commerce, or any small business people whatsoever. Funny, but aren't they the ones who create the new jobs in America? Do you think that UNIONS create jobs? They were all there in force.

So let's get it straight. Obama has just spent $1.6 Trillion dollars in his first 10 months in office. Some of these bailouts were used to create "shovel ready jobs." However, upon close inspection, the Stimulus only spent 3-4% on roads and bridges. Where did the rest of the Stimulus money go? So much for promises.

Are you aware that the bulk of the remaining Stimulus is not scheduled to be spent until just before the mid-term elections. Huh? We were being forced to accept the Stimulus and have it jammed down our throats because "we needed the money immediately". Now we discover that over 2/3 of the Stimulus monies are not available until a year after we approved it? Does this make any sense? Were we lied to or is this something they forgot to explain?

To make matters worse, now we are finding out that after telling us that if we didn't get the Stimulus we would see unemployment reach 8.5%. OK, so we gave in to keep unemployment down. So now unemployment has reached 10.2%! Wow, that makes a lot of sense. How much of this crap are we going to put up with?

Obama's Stimulus did NOT create ANY jobs. Where did the money go? It went to special interest groups and to more entitlements. Cash for Clunkers ring a bell? First time home buyers discounts ring another bell? What a terrible waste of money.

The latest brainstorm idea is to take TARP money that companies have paid back and spend it for the Second Stimulus. Hey Obama, this isn't YOUR special slush fund! Those are taxpayer dollars you are throwing around! You need to take the take the returned TARP funds and pay off the deficit instead. Try being FRUGAL for a change. Besides, you do NOT have Constitutional authority to spend that money anyway. Oh, that's right, you IGNORE the Constitution!

The idiots who believe you can spend your way out of a recession are destroying the US dollar. This in-turn is destroying the American way of life and the traditional American life style.

Action To Take
Let the White House know you do not want more spending. Complain about using returned TARP payments for more spending on ideas that don't create jobs.

Who Needs Congress Anyway?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) just declared that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a harmful substance to people.

Stop for a minute. Take in a breath. Now exhale… There, that’s carbon dioxide that YOU just created from breathing oxygen in the air! The EPA says that’s BAD for you! What? Isn’t that part of the life cycle? Don’t trees and other plant forms utilize carbon dioxide to produce oxygen. Isn’t that the same oxygen that PEOPLE BREATHE? I don't know about you, but I don't belive that breathing is really bad for people.

Now a government agency (EPA) is stating that CO2 is BAD for humans?? Why? So they can regulate it! Who really needs Congress to make the laws anyway?

You see Congress passed the Clean Air Act (originally passed in 1963) which enables the government to “improve the nation’s air quality.” This law was originally intended to be used to clean up polluters and to make automobiles cleaner. You know, make polluters more responsible and hold them responsible for their waste and pollution.

Brief History
The EPA was created all the way back in December 1970. It came about partly due to a book written by Rachel Carlson titled “Silent Spring” that was all about how birds die because of pesticide pollution in the United States. The first Earth Day was founded back then and there was a huge political uprising for conservation and awareness regarding pollution. So who could be against conservation? The EPA was created under this atmosphere.

Today’s EPA
Now the Obama administration under the guidance of Cass Sustein, (Obama’s Regulatory Czar), is using the EPA for their own agenda. Namely, to support the bogus “theory” of Global Warming. Cass Sustein is the guy who wants to ban all hunting and give legal “rights” to animals so they can sue people! Honest, he wrote about this and now he's an Obama Czar!

Since the US Senate is too busy working on ObamaCare legislation, they haven’t had time to look at the ridiculous bill called “Cap & Trade” which was passed in the House of Representatives. Remember, that’s the one that will regulate your energy consumption and as Obama says make YOUR electric bill “skyrocket.”

Well, why wait for Congress anyway? The government can pretty well do what it wants under this administration. They can "regulate" their way into the administration’s version of it’s own Cap & Trade via the EPA. They can "nudge" you by regulation. Screw Congress!

Do you REALLY want the government to regulate CO2? Do they have the right to do so? Have they overstepped their powers? Can they actually get away with this? Doesn't Congress make the laws?

Action To Take
Abolish the Clean Air Act. Humm… that may be too drastic. Abolish the EPA. Humm… that too may be too drastic. How about cutting the EPAs funding? Ahhh yes, that would do it. Cut them down to size and let them know they ARE NOT IN CHARGE! Congress makes the laws of the land – NOT the EPA!

AARP Sellout Letter

OK, you are a member of the AARP or know someone who is. You already know that they have made a deal with the Obama administration to sell their insurance after government healthcare becomes law. They will be allowed to sell gap insurance to people who are being forced out of Medicare coverage.

Instead of renewing your membership in this Left wing organization, here is an example of the letter you should include with your cancellation of membership:

To Whom it may concern,

Enclosed you will find my 2009 and 2010 AARP membership cards. You have betrayed ALL senior citizens with your support of government healthcare. This plan eliminates over $500 Billion dollars from Medicare. You have sold-out your supporters so that you can sell your gap insurance after Medicare is decimated by ObamaCare.

I find your political endorsement disgusting and outrageous. I will encourage all senior citizens that I know who are members to cancel their memberships with your LEFT wing organization. I shall also discourage anyone I know who is thinking of joining AARP from not doing so
."

That’s it. Short and sweet. Let them know why you are dropping your membership.

How Pathetic Can You Get?

School supplies (pencils and notebooks) resembling Obama’s campaign ads are being sold to Columbia, Missouri public schools! The company that makes these items is now back-peddling saying (after complaints) that it was a mistake. The company Pencil Wholesale distributes school supplies to multiple Columbia area schools.

Here is a sample of a notebook that was sold in these schools:

Isn’t this notebook cover noticeably similar to Obama’s campaign images? Note the logo with three red stripes separated by white stripes in from of a white circle on a blue background. Now compare with the actual Obama campaign logo”


Does this look familiar?

How about the Obama Campaign motto sign?


The words are the same as the notebook cover.

This is truly disgusting and outrageous! Besides singing praise to the “anointed one”, we now have political reminders being sold to public school students to help continue the Obama Worship! These materials treat Obama like a diety!

This is nothing more than PROPAGANDA being used on school children. Americans should be outraged.

Action To Take
These school supplies were designed by the art department at Harcourt Pencil Company in Milroy, Indiana. Call or write them and let them know how you feel about their political propaganda scheme being sold to innocent school children. Promise to boycott their products.

Hackers – Oh Really?

The alleged "hacker" of the ClimateGate scandal is not guilty of committing ANY crimes. The information they obtained was downloaded from an FTP public web site. The information that was responsible for the scandal was posted under the British Freedom of Information Act. So nothing was stolen and no crime was perpetrated. No one “hacked” anything. The information was posted for anyone’s access.

This scandal began when an anonymous person released over 60 MB of confidential files that included over 1,000 emails and some 70 documents. The documents exposed that the “scientists” at the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) admit manipulating data about the earth’s temperature. They discuss to using a “trick” to hide the “decline” in the earth’s temperature since 1960!

Finally the main stream media mentions the scandal, but they don’t call it that. Instead, they defend the emails by explaining that “trick” and “hide the decline” really don’t mean what you think. They give a lame definition instead. No matter how you try and whitewash this, it is a gigantic fraud.

These documents show these “scientists” engaging in what may be criminal activity. They indicate that the Climate Research Unit was committing fraud among other things. To make matters worse, the CRU received more than $23 Million in US taxpayer dollars for its work on global warming. Humm… and this is NOT worth investigating?

The CRU claimed to have collected the most complete temperature data on the earth’s temperature for the last half century. This information, in turn, was used by the United Nations Climate Change panel in 2007 to formally report to the world that we need to abolish modern technology because if pollution it creates. After this scandal broke, the CRU suddenly “lost” all of this scientific data and that it was “irretrievably lost.” How convenient. When asked to duplicate results, they cannot. Shouldn’t we be asking why not? What happened to the most comprehensive earth temperature data? How was it lost? Are we supposed to believe the “scientific consensus” with these things happening? Why can’t they prove they are not lying? What are the trying to hide? The TRUTH!

Our President is going to Denmark next week to the climate summit. He is going to commit the United States to a reduction of greenhouse gasses with the world community. How can he continue to ignore ClimateGate? Is he part of the problem? What is his REAL agenda?

If the man-made global warming hysteria is the product of junk science, isn’t it important to move carefully – before making this kind of commitment? Who profits from this agreement? We need more information, just like Obama did, before he made his strategy decision on Afghanistan. Why not stop, make no commitments, and get to the bottom of the scandal with some investigations? Don’t commit the US to any treaty that gives-up US sovereignty. AND, don’t pass Cap & Trade at a cost of $145 Trillion dollars in new taxes to Americans.

Ironic - But Not Surprised

Isn’t it strange that one of the biggest potential world-wide scandal is not reported by NBC, ABC, CNN or CBS? On November 20, 2009 it was first reported that there may be a cover-up regarding Global Warming. Have your heard anything about this from those networks?? How come?

The scandal is that several scientists behind the global warming “Theory” may be conspiring to suppress actual data that shows just the opposite of their political alarmism. They have allegedly destroyed any data that shows anything contrary to what they want the data to indicate. They have also tried to discredit opponents – even to the point of getting some individuals fired for publishing opposing thoughts.

In spite of all this furor, the main stream media is SILENT! Why is this?

Even our administration is ignoring the situation. President Obama is still going to Denmark for the climate summit where he is expected to commit US resources to reducing greenhouse gasses. Senator Barbara Boxer when confronted with the scandal, admits that there should indeed be criminal charges filed AGAINST the email hackers who broke the story. Wow, this sounds like a couple of AGs here in the United States who want to persecute the two individuals who videotaped ACORN violating the law of the land.

Yes, it is ironic that the Left cannot be objective or open minded when it comes to ANYTHING that endangers or attacks their agenda. Forget that the Cap & Trade proposed legislation will cost Americans at least $145 Trillion dollars if implemented. Our own President has stated “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” Forget that our economy is in shambles and that the unemployment rate is at a 25 year high! The Left still wants to impose this agenda because it is worth Trillions of dollars to their special interest groups.

Action To Take
Call the White House and let them know you oppose Cap & Trade and don’t want Obama to give up national sovereignty in any BOGUS treaty on Climate Change.

White House Ignores ClimateGate

In spite of recent disclosures regarding the alleged conspiracy to promote Climate Change for political gain and to raise taxes, the White House continues to ignore the possibility that there may be some truth in these allegations. Instead, Obama will be on his way to Denmark to make concessions to world leaders towards reducing green house gasses.

Hello? Lights on, nobody home!

Is the White House trying to whitewash this potential crisis? Is this a chink in the Progressive armor? Why not step back and see what is unfolding in the United Kingdom? There are many different interpretations of what the “scientific” community over there was doing to the climate data.

Lord Christopher Monckton released a definitive report on the ClimateGate scandal. Here is the link to the 43 page report. After reading it, you may have a different opinion about the “true” science used and the “real” motivations used by these alleged conspirators.

The Cap & Trade legislation (sitting in the US Senate waiting for them to vote on it) will cost US citizens an estimated $145 Trillion dollars in new taxes. Can our economy afford these taxes during the worst recession since the Great Depression?

Action To Take
Contact the White House and request them to investigate this report. Ask why the President refuses to slow down and wait for more information before making ANY commitments to foreign leaders to reduce green house gasses. Why can’t Obama wait like he did on Afghanistan before he makes a BIG mistake on Clime Change?

Illegal Aliens Are Still Covered

It doesn’t matter which version of the government healthcare plan you talk about, they all have included coverage for illegal aliens. Hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens could receive healthcare coverage from their employers. This is true even though President Obama promised that illegal aliens would not benefit from this plan. Maybe he IS a liar after all!

The House bill mandates and the Senate version strongly encourages businesses to give healthcare coverage to all employees. Neither contains any exemptions to screen-out illegal aliens. Neither bill requires employers to verify identities of employees (Illegal aliens usually false documents to gain employment). Democrats say that in the case of illegal coverage, that it would be an outcome of people breaking the law, and not intentional by the employers. Republicans argue that these loopholes allow coverage to anyone who wants to cheat the system (including illegal aliens who by the way, have already broken the law to gain entry into the United States).

So the current thinking in Congress is to stick your head in the sand and ignore the problem of illegal aliens altogether. The bottom line is that Americans will have to pay for them. Gee, that sounds fair! A free entitlement to someone who doesn’t legally belong here who is “sponging” off the system. That’s NOT a solution. That’s a Problem!

If you’re going to the trouble of creating an entirely new healthcare system of over 2,000 pages of regulations and rules, you should also consider and resolve the problem of how to deal with people who have no legal right to receive this benefit. After all what’s another 50 pages?

If they won’t resolve the issue, they should abolish the plan. It doesn’t fix anything if it can’t address important issues. This is simply another version of a healthcare system that introduces unresolved problems that will continue to fester and become more expensive over time. They are wasting US taxpayers dollars – not to mention ruining our future generation’s life styles with caustic deficit spending.

Federal Reserve Bank

In 1912 the House Banking and Currency Committee had hearings to look into the control of the banking resources in America. This committee concluded that American banking was in the hands of a "money trust." This was a well established identity that consisted of a few leaders of finance.

When President Wilson (a Progressive) was elected to office, he opposed any plan that would concentrate control in the hands of the existing banks. Instead he wanted the creation of a central bank that would perform all banking functions and issue currency against commercial assets and gold. Congress approved the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 under the Wilson administration.

This act went against the Founding Fathers idea of banks and how they should be operated. Thomas Jefferson was a leading opponent of central banks. He stated: "The idea of creating a national bank I do not concur in, because it seems now decided that Congress has not that power (although I sincerely wish they had it exclusively), and because I think there is already a vast redundancy rather than a scarcity of paper medium."

He states further: "The monopoly of a single bank is certainly an evil. The multiplication of them was intended to cure it; but it multiplied an influence of the same character with the first, and completed the supplanting the precious metals by a paper circulation. Between such parties the less we meddle the better."

Jefferson also had strong feelings about printing paper currency. "That paper money has some advantages is admitted. But that its abuses also are inevitable and, by breaking up the measure of value, makes a lottery of all private property, cannot be denied."

Were We Are Today
Now we have a Federal Reserve Bank Chairman who wants even MORE POWER! Chairman Bernanke expressed a desire to block ANY current legislation that would restrict his growing powers. He claims that the congressional efforts would weaken the bank's ability to handle future crisis and could politicize the monetary policy. WHAT?

We believe that the current policies ARE in fact politicized and that they are also an abysmal failure. They have ignored to crack-down on any risky lending practices that led to the financial meltdown. They did quite the opposite!

Bernanke is also opposed to Congress repealing the ban on congressional audits established in 1978. Bernanke wants to operate independently without any "political influence" in the long-term economic interest of the nation. Yeah, sure!

Bernanke still likes the idea that he can determine which financial and corporate institutions are "TOO BIG TO FAIL" and wants even more powers for a tougher oversight of these measures.

Quite the contrary, we should ABOLISH the Federal Reserve Bank! They have overgrown their authority and now want more POWER! That's outrageous! They need to be stopped dead in their tracks – NOW!

Action To Take

Support Ron Paul's initiative to reduce the powers and control of the federal Reserve Bank.

How About an Investigation?

Hey, before we commit Trillions of dollars in deficit spending with Cap & Trade legislation to reduce carbon emissions and green house gasses, don't you think we should look into the reported falsified data and possible fraud on Climate Change?

The proposed Cap & Trade legislation affects all major industries that produce ANYTHING made in the United States. It even taxes consumers on their homes and use of electricity. The net affect is that of "eco tyranny." Cap & Trade taxes everything produced and all sources of energy. Ironically, the legislation creates the new business of taxing energy in order to make money for the government and redistribute wealth.

In this fragile economy, America cannot afford any more new taxes. It will destroy our economy. Now we have evidence that the whole idea of Climate Change may be a fraud. Climate Change may be an exaggeration, a conspiracy, and falsified data all to further a cause of a Progressive political agenda. News broke that prominent scientists have collaborated in falsifying data and may be defrauding Americans in order to get the legislation passed. Isn't that enough to warrant an investigation alone? Why spend trillions more to give the US government control over what could be a FALSE SCIENCE? It doesn't make any sense to pass Cap & Trade until we find out more.

If Congress ignores the latest developing scandal, then we can truly understand that the Progressive agenda is in full swing. Now that we have a hint that Global Warming may actually be a farce, does it make ANY sense to continue with Cap & Trade?

Action To Take
Demand a Congressional investigation into the "smoking gun" on Climate Change before continuing with Cap & Trade legislation.

America is Awakening

Whether you like it or not, Americans are awakening to the threat facing this country. They are becoming unified to the menace of the Leftist elite, Progressives, Communists, Marxists, (or whatever you want to call them). Americans are aware that the "Progressive" (as we shall call them) wants to fundamentally change America by forcing their Socio-Fascist agenda on us and make every citizen totally dependent on the government (the state).

Progressives have slowly taken over this country on several fonts. They control the main stream media (TV networks and newspapers), colleges and universities, and public education in state schools. They claim to represent women, minorities, children, and any underprivileged "weak" individuals. They supposedly "protect" the victims in our culture. They are the source of the Political Correctness movement. So far, they have been persistent and successful in their agenda. This has been happening for the past 100 years or so.

Americans understand that Progressives don't cut budgets, they increase taxes. That's one of the main reasons why Tea Parties got started in the first place. This conservative movement is essential in the survival for America as we know it. Conservative Americans are starting their own revolution! We can thank President "O-Bow-Ma" for showing us the way. Before his Blitzkrieg agenda for change, we sat back and watched as Progressives slowly but surely changed America and we did nothing.

If John McCain had been elected things wouldn't have been much different. However, they wouldn't be accelerating this fast towards totalitarianism. He is just as bad as his opponent. For example: He supports amnesty for illegal aliens. McCain would not close the borders either. He supported the attack on free speech with his so-called Campaign Reform bill that he jointly sponsored with Dianne Feinstein that suppresses political speech before elections. He didn't see anything wrong with Obama's association with Bill Ayers or with Reverend Wright. He has been silent in NOT wanting to investigate ACORN.

McCain is also a Progressive! Some consider him "Progressive Light" compared to Obama! That's why we have been given the choice between two evils in past elections. Do you want a Progressive. Or Progressive Light? Both parties have become Progressive. Look at their records. They are NOT conservative and do NOT represent Conservative values as specified in the Constitution.

The Tea Party movement and the 912 organization realize that all men are created equal and have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. They both want to preserve and protect the Constitution – NOT change or ignore it. Big government doesn't believe this. They believe just the opposite. The government is out of control.

These are truly historical times. We are making history. Now history has once again repeated itself and made us the underdog. Big government is no longer listening to us. They only care about special interests and getting more and more power, thinking that they know what's best for all of us - NOT us! They are trying to become totalitarian.

The Tea Party Movement represents the underdog. It aspires to become the new national hero. It is becoming a strong political movement and Progressives really don't know what to do about it. We ARE the voice of the people! We are tired of being oppressed by the very government we created! We ARE determined to crush them before they do it to us.

Turkeys of the Year – by Michelle Malkin

This article sums up what a lot of Americans are thinking.

"As we gather round the Thanksgiving table, bow our heads in prayer and feast on the holiday bird, it is only fitting to take a moment to fete the unforgettable turkeys of 2009.

1. The stimulus. Back in February, I wrote that if the trillion-dollar stimulus plan were a Thanksgiving dinner entree, it would be a Turbaconducken — the heart attack-inducing dish of roasted chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey, all wrapped in endless slabs of bacon. And so it has come to pass. After the Democratic majority larded up the massive spending package with earmarks and bribes, President Obama declared it pork-free and has stubbornly touted its job creation benefits for out-of-work Americans.

Reality check? The Washington Examiner reports that more than 10 percent of the jobs the Obama administration claimed were “created or saved” by the stimulus are doubtful or imaginary. ABC News uncovered countless examples of bogus congressional districts listed as stimulus beneficiaries by the Obama stimulus tracking website, Recovery.gov. The money has been lavished on shady beauty schools in New Hampshire, prison inmates in Texas and wind companies in Spain and China. Just this week, a California audit found that the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation overstated the number of jobs saved by federal stimulus dollars by upward of 13,000.

While this Generational Theft Act continues to soak up our tax dollars and add to our children’s and grandchildren’s debt, the Democratic majority is in the government kitchen cooking up a second stimulus turkey to provide federal infrastructure money to public-sector unions. Gobble, gobble.

2. President O-bow-ma. The candidate who pledged to restore America’s standing in the world couldn’t figure out how to stay standing in front of world leaders. In April, he crouched before Saudi King Abdullah. This month, he provoked global derision when he broke protocol and performed a spineless blunder in front of the Japanese emperor.

The kowtower-in-chief’s body language reflected the administration’s broader foreign policy prostrations — including scrapping missile defense in the Czech Republic and Poland, canceling a meeting with the Dalai Lama to appease China, sitting on its hands this summer during the Iranian election protests and unveiling the 9/11 show trials in New York City that will provide a circus platform for jihadis and international Bush-haters.

The left complained that George W. Bush was too much of a cowboy on the global stage. It’s better than having a waterboy.

3. Green jobs czar Van Jones. This deep-fried turkey was recruited by Team Obama’s Chicago consigliere Valerie Jarrett, who boasted about recruiting the Marxist rabble-rouser from Oakland.

He openly crusaded to free Philadelphia death row cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, bashed capitalism with radical revolutionary rhetoric and signed a 9/11 conspiracy petition that he meekly disavowed in a botched attempt to save his job. Jones is now at the Center for American Progress, run by Obama transition official and Democratic operative John Podesta.

The other turkey in the story, Val Jarrett, escaped unscathed and went on to push the Obamas into their failed crony campaign for the 2016 Olympics bid in Copenhagen — a taxpayer-funded, hubris-infused debacle that ties with Van Jones for third biggest turkey of the year. Rio got the Games. America got a closer look at the pay-for-play patrons, power brokers and developers in the Windy City who have put an indelible Chicago stamp on the Potomac.

4. The New York Times. Scooped by Fox News, conservative blogs and talk radio on the exploding ACORN scandal, the paper whitewashed its own role in covering up the community organizing racket’s financial shenanigans last fall when it cut off a reporter’s investigation a few weeks before Election Day. Jill Abramson, the Times’ managing editor for news, acknowledged that her staff was “slow off the mark” and blamed “insufficient tuned-in-ness to the issues that are dominating Fox News and talk radio.” They assigned a new “opinion media monitor” to track the competition, but refused to identify the watchdog for fear that he/she would get too many mean, intrusive e-mails and phone calls.

More recently, the paper’s website demonstrated that its real motto is “All the inconvenient news that’s fit to suppress.” The Times’ lead environmental blogger, Andrew Revkin, haughtily refused to reprint damning e-mails leaked by a hacker in the burgeoning “ClimateGate” scandal. The documents reveal a long trail of manipulated data, but Revkin balked at the ill-gotten trove. The blabbermouths at the Times had no problem exposing national security secrets to undermine Bush. But shed light on scientific hoaxes that undermine Al Gore? Unethical!

5. Tea Party-bashers. Millions of ordinary, peaceful Americans joined the Tea Party movement to revolt against big government, backroom deals and the Beltway culture of corruption. For their exercise of free speech and free assembly, they were smeared nationwide. Hollywood has-been Janeane Garofalo called them “racist, backward motherf**kers.” SEIU labor thug Dennis Rivera accused them of “terrorist tactics.” CNN anchor Anderson Cooper used a vulgar sexual epithet to describe them. Team Obama’s astroturfers declared all-out war on them.

For refusing to sit down and shut up in the face of such unhinged bigotry, and for exposing the foulness of the political fowl, I have two words for them: Thank you."


Thank you Michelle Malkin!

Advice to Tea Party Movement

David Horowitz is a writer and right wing activist. He was a former supporter of Marxism in the 1960s and then renounced his left-wing radicalism. He became an advocate for conservatism.

He states that the Left perpetuates the myth that they are for the "underdogs". The myth is the false belief that people have is that the Left defends and sticks up for the victims and the underprivileged. This is a lie.

Here’s the tactical advice he gives to the Tea Party Movement:

"1. Do the Unexpected. Raise Their Discomfort Level. Put them Off-Balance. Invert the Myth. All four of these objectives are accomplished by inverting the Myth. The left feeds off the Myth that they are on the side of the Underdog, they are serving the underserved, defending society’s victims, championing the oppressed. And that you are the oppressor. By picking an issue and framing it so that it inverts the myth you accomplish all of the above. E.g., by having a Die-In outside mammogram facilities you dramatize that ObamaCare will take a vulnerable group, women, and reduce them to budgetary statistics, and sentence individuals to unnecessary deaths. (ObamaCare will do this to everyone, but since women have been portrayed and are perceived as a victim group, this dramatizes the way in which the socialist state is an oppressor.)

2. Make your point in a sound-bite or an image.

3. Provoke the left. Since the left controls the media, the key to getting media attention is to tick off the left. When the left squeals, the media listen. Inverting their Myth is the best way to do this.

4. Pick an issue that exposes the fact that they are the oppressor and you are defending the “oppressed.” Conservatives are best organized around an issue. The left is a religious movement. They are saving the squirrels, the trans-gendered oppressed, the snail-darters, the planet. What unites them is their belief that America — capitalist America — is the Great Satan. Conservatives are generally already committed to religions in which the savior is not government but a divinity. They are pragmatic and attached to real world things and values. But conservatives can be galvanized into a movement if they perceive a threat to their way of life. Hence during the cold war, the threat of communism organized them around the issue of national security. The threat of Obama is doing the same thing (and Obama is really the same threat that we experienced from communism during the Cold War). Barack Obama and the socialist juggernaut he heads have persuaded conservatives that they are prepared to destroy everything Americans hold dear. So there’s no real problem in organizing conservatives now. Just focus on an issue that crystallizes Americans’ fear and frame it in a way that inverts the Myth and focuses attention on the source of the threat."


Interesting comments and suggestions. Thank you David for your perspectives. Perhaps the Tea Parties will incorporate some of your ideas into future activities!

Taxes and More Taxes

That's the answer!

We voted for change. Is this the change you wanted? Proposed government healthcare contains so many hidden taxes, they number over a dozen! Cap & Trade will tax everything produced, consumed or generated in the US. Now the latest "idea" out of Washington is to fund the war in Afghanistan by passing a "War Surtax" on the wealthy. And… the other brainstorm idea is now to tax Wall Street! Discriminate against Wall Street and capitalism! Obama's policies punish anyone who believes in capitalism. Isn't that Class Warfare? Isn't this the United States of America or Marxism? Are you sure? If the government can tax one group, what's stopping them from taxing another?

Since when does it become a good idea to let costs decide National Security strategy? What kind of advice is that? Aren't we committed to win in Afghanistan? Isn't Afghanistan linked to our National Security? We have a President who can't make a LIFE or DEATH decision. If he had a son or daughter serving in Afghanistan would he still be waiting to make a decision to send troops or not? Does that give you a warm fuzzy feeling at night? If not then we should get the hell out of Afghanistan and stop wasting American blood and treasure. Chances are that Obama doesn't even have a plan for withdrawal either!

Obama's strategy is to tax everything while the economy is in a serious recession of unprecedented proportions! Does this make any sense at all? We (the citizens of the US) are paying dearly for his lack of experience and naïveté in administering and governing anything! Our troops are paying with their lives. Does he even care?

National bankruptcy is looming around the corner. Our deficits are becoming crucial. The dollar is dropping in value. There's talk of a new world currency. His answer is to tax us even more than before. That's insanity and just bad for America. Americans have been taxed enough. We need to protect our homeland and start cutting big government programs. We can't do it using a pre-911 mentality. Obama is puting our country at risk.

Cloward-Piven Strategy

What is this strategy? Simply the strategy is the forcing of political change by using an organized crisis. It seeks to induce the fall of capitalism by overloading government bureaucracy to the point of impossible demands, thus forcing the society into an economic collapse and crisis. Does this sound familiar? Is this the pattern evolving in our country?

Who Were Cloward and Piven?
They were a husband and wife team (Richard Cloward and Francis Piven) who were life long members in the Democratic Socialists of America. They were professors at Columbia University and later at the University of New York.

In 1966 they jointly wrote a paper outlining their strategy entitled "The Weight of the Poor". In it they detail how to use community organizations to push more demands for public services at all levels of the government. By overstressing it, the government collapses. They began implementation of their strategy by creating a succession of radical organizations including the infamous ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) along with the help of Wade Rathke. (You remember him, he's the CEO of ACORN who helped cover-up his brother's embezzlement of several millions of taxpayer dollars.)

Motor Voter Law
Cloward and Piven conceived the Motor Voter law as part of their collapse strategy. It was signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1993. This law creates numerous opportunities for voter fraud in the US electoral system. This in-turn was exploited by ACORN throughout the United States and continues today! This law opened the vulnerability to register vast numbers of illegal aliens who vote primarily Democratic.

Mass Legislation Initiatives
Don't find it ironic that this Congress and President are literally flooding America with their radical initiatives, laws, healthcare reform, Cap & Trade, and other unsustainable laws and regulations? It fits with the Cloward-Piven strategy! They are doing this at record-breaking speeds, non-stop.

They hope that we will become too overwhelmed to oppose and hold out. We need to fight and resist every initiative that they promote. We already know they are NOT listening to us. All they want is more government power. Corruption has taken over Washington and we need to stop it before we loose all freedoms.

Progressives at it Again!

Brief Background
Nicknamed "Old Ironsides", the USS Constitution is the nation's oldest commissioned naval vessel. The Constitution is literally a floating museum of American history. It follows a ceremonial custom of twice-daily firing its cannons and playing the National anthem as it raises and lowers the American flag. The legendary battleship is equipped with 44 cannons, but only shoots two – twice a day. It has done so for eons of time as an American tradition since 1798!

Now upscale Charlestown, MA neighbors are trying to silence this tradition forever. The miffed residents claim that the cannon blasts are "more disruptive to the neighborhood than you might have imagined."

Our Massachusetts reader Mr. Anonymous has made several comments to the progressive attacks that exemplify the progressive movement in trying to change America's established traditions. Here are his observations…

"Have you followed the story about the USS Constitution firing its cannons twice daily and playing our national anthem over speakers?

A few of the residents (red nose in the air "privileged assholes") in the condos near where the ship is docked are now crying about the noise and how their day is disrupted by the Navy activity. The condos are no doubt posh high-end units, but do you think those complaining had prior knowledge?!! They are pushing Charlestown [MA] (and who knows who else) to stop the Navies salute to all who served and are serving now.

It just doesn't stop. In many countries the complainers would be removed, silenced, deported etc. Sad they can't see where their freedom comes from.

Another bunch of MA clowns moved to NH in the last twenty years to avoid [paying sales] taxes and "live free or die". Now there are so many liberals in the southern NH towns they are trying to remove the state motto from the license plates because it is "offensive". Next what? Change the motto?

Don't even think about VT. Soft judges (pedophiles getting of with no jailtime), fluffy marriage, home of Howard Dean, New York liberals moving in, and Ben and Jerrys ice cream flavor to celebrate VT gay marriage law.

The US is loosing grip. I wont go on, no need to. Where is the Silent Majority? They best wake up.

Dear Anomyous, Progressives will continue their attack on America's traditions. You're right, we need to stop them. This IS our country too!!

Politics as Usual

Do you think that Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu (D) is bad? She made a deal with her fellow Senators that if she voted "YES" on ObamaCare, she would get $300 Million in extra federal money (from deficit spending) for her state. (She was a critical swing voter on the bill). What’s the difference between this and extortion and bribery? She literally sold her vote (extortion at taxpayer's expense) to get "payola" for Louisiana. Isn't that what it really was – extortion and bribery? The majority of her constituents don't want ObamaCare, but she votes for it anyway. She rationalizes that it brings $300 Million dollars back to her home state. She's proud of that accomplishment! So she gives people what they don't want and then subsidizes her pet projects with deficit spending that we all can't afford. We're supposed to feel good about that? Louisiana voters, how do you feel about that?

What about your state Reps and Senators who may have supported ObamaCare even though the majority of Americans don't want it? Are they any different than Mary Landrieu? What deals did they cut to make their votes count? Is it OK to accept politics as usual?

Oh sure, that's politics. Oh really? What ever happened to being honest? How about actually representing the people who put you in office?

Speaking of honesty and politics, the AARP is now a strong supporter of ObamaCare. Remember several months ago they denied that they were supporting government healthcare. That's when they were in negotiations with Obama to cut a deal.

The AARP is ignoring the fact that the people they are paid to represent (senior citizens) are literally getting screwed if ObamaCare passes. Seniors will loose $500 Billion dollars from Medicare in order to help pay for the uninsured and "others". The AARP is happy to go along with this plan. Why? Because Obama is going to allow them to sell their gap insurance to the Seniors who will loose their coverage under Medicare when government healthcare passes! The AARP will make millions of dollars because they sold-out the very people who they are suppose to represent. Politics as usual.

Action To Take
In the case of the AARP, that's easy. Quit your membership (if you belong). Tell other seniors to follow suit. In the case of your representatives –vote them out of office in the 2010 mid-term elections. In the case of your senators, stay on their case and watch them like hawks. Know what they do and how they vote, so you can make an informed voting decision when their respective term is up.

US Post Looking for Another Bailout

Each year the government-controlled Post Office looses money. This past year it lost $3.8 Billion dollars even though it delivered less mail, than the previous year. (Actually 13% less packages). In addition, this loss follows losses in the previous two years 2007 – 2008 of $ 7.8 Billion dollars.

The agency cut 40,000 jobs last year saving $ 6 Billion dollars. It slashed overtime hours too. But none of these measures are enough to render the service profitable or even a break even activity. It does not generate enough money to keep operating – just the opposite.

OK, so what's the point you ask? This is a government run agency. It is costing us more to run than it takes in and is looking for more bailout money. Why do we keep floating it more money? Why don't they increase the cost of the postage?

Special interest groups is the answer. The majority of users are businesses that use the Postal Service for mailings. They don't want price increases for postage. Also the majority of Americans would prefer a cut in service (no Saturday deliveries) to keep postal rates low.

It is argued that no matter what, we should keep the Us Postal Service alive because it is "part of the fabric of the nation." However, it has not kept pace with technology and besides "snail" mail, we have FED Ex, UPS, email, text messaging, and instant messaging on the Internet and cell phones.

This isn't the only government run program that is running a deficit. We have Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security all of which are spending (costing) more than we are taking in and they are all adding to the national deficit. We cannot afford these deficits in bad economic times. They are literally destroying America.

So what are we to do? If the government cannot run these programs without adding more and more to the national deficits, then ask yourself, why should you trust them to run government controlled health care? And, should we continue to bailout the Post Offfice?

Sarah Palin and the Media

Well she's published her first book (Going Rogue) and beginning a book tour around the US. However, the media just can't stop attacking her. The latest edition of Newsweek illustrates the point:



Of all the photos Newsweek could have used from the political campaign, they chose that one. Why? To sell magazines! Did they stop and think that that photo and its use may be considered Sexist? Hardly, after all, it's only Sarah Palin. Do they even care? (By the way that photo was originally used for the August issue of Runners World.)

Needless to say Sarah Palin is NOT happy with the use of this photo. It was OK to be in running gear for that venue, but really in bad taste when used in Newsweek. What is Newsweek's message? She says "The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin. The media will do anything to draw attention - even if out of context.

The Christian Broadcasting Networks David Brody had this to say: "You’ve got to hand it to the folks at Newsweek, they have accomplished being biased and sexist at the same time. Quite a feat. This cover has got to be a new low right? They don’t use a photo of Palin on the campaign trail. No instead they take the sexy Runners World photo.” He states further: “Yes she posed for it but don’t tell me they didn’t purposely use that photo to make a point?

Before you get your dander up, in case you haven't noticed, the media really DOES trash Palin every chance they get because they are afraid of her. Why is this? She's not a typical Washington politician. Instead she represents the middle core of America. She likes guns, she hunts and shoots animals for food, she eats meat, she stands up to special interest groups, she's against abortion (she has a Downs Syndrome child), and she's a christian that goes to church.

Washington politicians aren't anything like that!

Can you imagine what the reaction would be if a similar type photo of Michele Obama was used on the front cover of Newsweek? You know that they would pay the price from the rest of the media for being so blatantly sexist. I guess that they cannot believe that there are conservative women who have conservative principles. It scares them out of their wits. Why can't conservative women be politicians as well?

Terrorists Trial Venue

Hey, here's a brainy idea! Let's try the guy (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed) who conceived the 911 attacks right in NYC! It's NOT important that he was captured in a foreign country. Lets ignore public safety, national security, and illegal evidence and show the world we have nothing to hide. We can make an example of this guy! OH REALLY?

Now we will give him all the rights and privileges of an American citizen. This is just plain STUPID! Now we will have to divulge information on our intelligence gathering methods and other secrets that our enemies want to know.

This trial has already become a joke.

Why would ANYONE want to do this? It sets a BAD precedent for future enemy combatants. Never before has the US ever done this. We are giving full rights to an enemy combatant. THAT'S MORONIC!

Is this a political decision? Is Obama trying to placate his left wing part of the party? What is HE thinking? Is this is a terrible joke or is HE really that stupid? This exemplifies Obama's status of rank amateur in foreign relations and National Security!

This is the worst possible decision that Obama has made. It will be his downfall. The outcome of this trial is unpredictable. (Remember OJ's fiasco?)

Action To Take
Let the White House know your feelings.
