White House Attacks the 1st Amendment

The White House this week formed a group whose job is to report any "Fishy Criticisms" or "misleading information" of Obama's healthcare plan. This group asks you to provide emails or information regarding these remarks.

The group is spearheaded by Linda Douglas, the White House Communications Director for Health Reform. She is in charge of asking people to "Snitch" on friends, family, or anyone who disagrees with Obama healthcare. So maybe it's fair to say she is the Czar of the "Snitch Police."

The last time this tactic was used effectively on this scale by a government was just prior to World War II by the National Socialist Party (Nazis) in Germany. They received "tips" from people who claimed the named individuals were discussing anti-government topics. The Gestapo ("Snitch Police") arrested those accused for interrogation. Many of these individuals never returned home and were never seen again. That's right, apparently a Fascist government is our new model for "disinformation"!

According to Judge Nathan Napolitano who appeared on TV Thursday evening, this is a direct violation of the First Amendment! After President Nixon created an enemies list in the 70s, Congress added to the law making this act illegal. The statute forbids the government from collecting information on people who speak against the government. It also prohibits the government from saving and storing this information. That's EXACTLY what the OBAMA administration is doing NOW! These actions by OUR government suppresses free speech and intimidates everyday folks, like you and me.

Wake Up Americans
America, does it worry you that the government will take this information, including your names? We are being threatened by intimidation from our own PRESIDENT. He is attacking our liberties and personal freedoms!

1st Amendment
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Isn't it clear this is a violation of the First Amendment? The White House is issuing a clarion call to squeal on opposition to government policies. This elevates the issue and makes it a direct threat to all Americans! The request comes from the pinnacle of power (OBAMA) in this country! Many Americans feel that this could result in some serious repercussions from the government - like say an IRS audit for openers!

Right To Protest
When did it become un-American to protest or have a different opinion?? Americans have protested over civil rights, pro-abortion rights, anti-war demonstrations, and environmental demonstrations. It is our unalienable right! The government cannot threaten us because we have our own opinion!


Actions To Take
Phone the White House and demand that this policy be stopped immediately. 202-456-1111 Also, ask for a public apology.

3 New Private Jets for Congress

Do you remember back in November last year when Congress had Congressional hearings for the automobile manufacturers? Sure you do!! Congress had all three CEOs from Chrysler, Ford and GM lined up at the same table, under oath, and testifying about the state of their respective companies.

The CEOs were all asking for government bailouts to save the auto industry. Do you remember the humiliation, embarrassment and insult they all suffered when asked how they got to the meetings?

Congress and the main stream media blasted these officials regarding their hypocrisy of asking for hand outs while flying there in private corporate jets. The dishonor of it all. How brazen and utterly shameless of them to do so. They were all forced to go home and sell these planes.

So after firing one CEO, Congress played the nice guys and gave the bailout money. It turned out that the car companies actually came back asking for even more money to avoid bankruptcy. So Congress (like fools) gave them more money and two of the three companies failed and were taken over by the Federal Government. So much for the bailouts!

Old news you say. Well how about this? Congress just voted for themselves the purchase of three Gulstream jets (G550s) at a cost of just shy of 200 Million dollars. That's $200,000,000!

Congress explained that these expensive planes are going to be used exclusively by Congress. However, they fudged the expenditure as Military aircraft to make it seem like the Air Force need the planes.

Now who are the hypocrites! America, don't stand for this behavior. We elected these people and now they think they can do whatever they want - including fly around in private jets. Why can't they use commercial airlines like we do? HUH?

Action To Take
America, where is your voice on this? Where is your outrage? Speak out loudly and let government officials know they are also hypocrites for doing so. Tell them to repeal this legislation because we don't need the planes and they can travel using commercial airlines like we have to do.

Call them, write them, email them, and go to town hall meetings. Ask questions and get the answers to your specific questions. BE CIVIL!!

Congress's new motto: "Don't do as I do, do as I say."

Tea Parties, What Tea Parties?

Our "unbiased", non-liberal slanted, fair and objective news media is reporting incorrect numbers again when it comes to attendance at Tea Parties.

Columbus, Ohio media reported a crowd of about 300 at the Tea Party on August 1, 2009. According to Judge Napolitano who was a speaker in Columbus the crowd was between 8,500 and 10,000. He verified these numbers with the local police who were there for crowd control.

Off hand, I'd say that the police had a more accurate estimate of the crowd since they had no political agenda. This is just one more example of how YOU CANNOT TRUST the media.

If the media reports something that is not to their political liking, they lie and misrepresent the truth. Better yet, they just don't report on it like it never happened. Did you see a lot of coverage about his on your local channels?

What Really Happened
Here are two examples of Tea Parties that occurred in August, 2009. They were either ignored or not accurately reported.

Action to Take
Stop putting up with this behavior! Boycott newspapers and TV stations who do this. Don't buy paid advertising in either media. Your purchase is your vote. Stop purchasing to let them know you are fed up with their political opinions presented as factual reporting. Stop watching news stations that do this too!

Natural Law

Do you know what this is? Probably not. We don't learn about this in school and longer. Our Founding Fathers actually believed in this and used it to help frame our Constitution!

Natural Law was discovered by Marcus Tullius Cicero, one of Rome's greatest politicians. He postulated that there were rules of correct conduct given to us by the Creator of the universe. It was the Creator's order of things that are the basis of Natural Law.

He believed that man's ability to reason was given to us by the Creator. Thus, man could discover and identify these Laws by human reasoning. Here is a list of Natural Laws discovered by the Founding Fathers when making a new nation. They discovered the concept of:
  • Checks and balances
  • Separation of powers - Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government
  • Limited government
  • Habeas corpus - the right of unlawful detention
  • Unalienable duties - including; The duty to: honor the Creator, not to steal, be honest, protect children, follow rules of moral conduct, and so on...
  • Unalienable rights - including; The right to: self-government, petition, to assemble, beget one's kind, choose a mate, choose a profession, free conscience, own property, bear arms for self-defense, free press, free speech, privacy, and so on...
  • No taxation without representation
Using the Law of Natural Rights they also discovered the right to:
  • Contract - laws protecting marriage and family
  • Self-preservation
  • Bear arms
(SOURCE: "The 5000 Year Leap" by W. Cleon Skousen)

These all seem quite familiar don't they? For a much stronger understanding of these concepts, please read the book referenced above. You will have a greater appreciation of what the Fonders believed and did for us.

The 2nd Bill of Rights

Most Americans are not familiar with this piece of history. We once had a Second Bill of Rights proposed, but never formally adopted.

As you may know our Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments) was based on Natural Law as mentioned in a previous topic. These rights were written down to preserve and protect our God given liberties.

The Second Bill of Rights was proposed during FDR's (Franklin Delano Roosevelt's) State of the Union address in 1944. It was issued not on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but rather on security and prosperity. Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights are as follows:

"The right to useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the Nation; to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation; of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living; of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad; of every family to a decent home; to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health; to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment; to a good education." (Source: "Liberty and Tyranny" by Mark Levin)

These are not based on Natural Law. Instead, they are based on government promises of utopia! How can these promises be guaranteed and by whom can they be guaranteed? Answer: By the government and they cannot guarantee anything - except control. The net affect of the so called "rights" is that private property and liberty go together. Individuals surrender control to the government. Hence, the individual serves the state.

Is that where we are headed today America? We haven't heard these words but what about the actions of our government? Do you feel well-off with the government owning automobile factories? Is it assuring to have the government control our banking systems, insurance companies, home mortgages, Wall Street and credit companies? Who is REALLY in charge here?

America is starting to become aware that something is haywire. Something's wrong here. You feel it in your gut. This isn't right. It has to stop. It's gone too far.

Follow Your Instincts
We need to start acting America. We have instincts and they are making us feel uncomfortable. Instincts are how we survive! We used to depend on them more a long time ago. Now we have been "droned" into an almost hypnotic trance. But our instincts are still working. They are telling us we are in DANGER. Our inherent aptitude is awakening and giving us the Red warning flag. Follow your instinct! Start worrying and take action!

What To Do
Attend a town meeting while your representatives are home from Washington. Let them know you disapprove of their voting record and demand they listen to YOUR concerns. If you can't go, call them!

Join a tea party. Join Twitter. Join Face Book. Write your own blog. Become politically active. Watch Glenn Beck on Fox TV. Read a book like "Common Sense" or "Liberal Fascism", or "The 5000 Year Leap." Do Something. Before you know it you will have plenty to do to help protect the Constitution.

Grass Roots Start Slow
The momentum is growing. Be patient. Stay active. Watch the progress.

Hold Onto Your Wallets

As a candidate, Obama promised voters (if he was elected) that he would not to raise taxes on middle class Americans. There's an old saying that a promise is a wish to a fool. Guess who got fooled again America?

White House adviser Larry Summers says that Obama cannot assure that he will stick to his campaign pledge regarding taxes.


That's a nice way of saying too bad Americans, you are going to pay for our mistakes. A great strategy to use after the government (Congress) spent way too much during a recession and then force us to pay for it. That's real sound economic policy, and it does not assure any mutual trust.

To corroborate, the same message was delivered by TAX CHEAT (Treasury Secretary) Timothy Geithner on TV over the weekend. You remember Tim, he's the guy who didn't pay his taxes and was "excused" by Obama when Geithner was being confirmed into the position that oversees the IRS! Obama said that Tim's oversight to pay taxes was an "honest mistake". (If you recall, several of Obama’s appointees did NOT pay their taxes. Were they also honest mistakes?) Who are we kidding here? If you avoid paying your taxes you'd end up in JAIL! They're both hypocrites!!

Geithner says that the key to sustaining the economic recovery is to "lower the deficit". That's the same deficit that Congress just increased to record breaking highs, based on Geithner's recommendations (among others). Consequently Geithner is NOT ruling out tax increases to help lower the deficits that they just gave us! Incompetents! Bungling IDIOTS! You're the ones who put us there!!!

He also said "the White House wants a health care bill that has broad support on Capitol Hill". But he said the decision of whether "to help shape this and be part of it" is up to lawmakers. "Or do they want this country . . . to go another several decades without doing what every other serious [Socialistic] country has done. Which is to give their citizens access to basic quality of care".

So let's get this straight Tim, are you suggesting that we pay for the government healthcare, lowering the deficits, or both?

Geithner also said on TV "Everybody understands that we cannot have our financial system go back to the practices that brought this economy to the brink of collapse," and "It is going to take fundamental reform."

Keep in mind that Geithner and Ben Bernanke want increased powers over the Federal Reserve Bank and over Wall Street in general. How can we trust these guys? Bernanke refuses to allow an audit on the Federal Reserve Bank. What's he trying to hide?

Demand Accountability
Stop this government expansion and grab for more power! Audit the Federal Reserve Bank. What about our gold supply at Fort Knox? Do we still have any gold? We need to find out! Do not allow the government more control over the financial industry than they have already grabbed. And, after auditing the Federal Reserve, abolish the Federal Reserve Bank instead!
