Guest Article - Progressive Giving - Ha!

LIBERALS GIVE 'TIL IT HURTS (YOU)
By Ann Coulter - Columnist and commentator.

"Liberals never tire of discussing their own generosity, particularly when demanding that the government take your money by force to fund shiftless government employees overseeing counterproductive government programs.

They seem to have replaced "God" with "Government" in scriptural phrases such as "love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." (Matthew 22:37)

This week, we'll take a peek at the charitable giving of these champions of the poor.

In 2009, the Obamas gave 5.9 percent of their income to charity, about the same as they gave in 2006 and 2007. In the eight years before he became president, Obama gave an average of 3.5 percent of his income to charity, upping that to 6.5 percent in 2008.

The Obamas' charitable giving is equally divided between "hope" and "change."

George W. Bush gave away more than 10 percent of his income each year he was president, as he did before becoming president.

Thus, in 2005, Obama gave about the same dollar amount to charity as President George Bush did, on an income of $1.7 million -- more than twice as much as President Bush's $735,180. Again in 2006, Bush gave more to charity than Obama on an income one-third smaller than Obama's.

In the decade before Joe Biden became vice president, the Bidens gave a total -- all 10 years combined -- of $3,690 to charity, or 0.2 percent of their income. They gave in a decade what most Americans in their tax bracket give in an average year, or about one row of hair plugs.

Of course, even in Biden's stingiest years, he gave more to charity than Sen. John Kerry did in 1995, which was a big fat goose egg. Kerry did, however, spend half a million dollars on a 17th-century Dutch seascape painting that year, as Peter Schweizer reports in his 2008 book, "Makers and Takers."

To be fair, 1995 was an off-year for Kerry's charitable giving. The year before, he gave $2,039 to charity, and the year before that a staggering $175.

He also dropped a $5 bill in the Salvation Army pail and almost didn't ask for change.

In 1998, Al Gore gave $353 to charity -- about a day's take for a lemonade stand in his neighborhood. That was 10 percent of the national average for charitable giving by people in the $100,000-$200,000 income bracket. Gore was at the very top of that bracket, with an income of $197,729.

When Sen. Ted Kennedy released his tax returns to run for president in the '70s, they showed that Kennedy gave a bare 1 percent of his income to charity -- or, as Schweizer says, "about as much as Kennedy claimed as a write-off on his 50-foot sailing sloop Curragh." (Cash tips to bartenders and cocktail waitresses are not considered charitable donations.)

The Democratic base gives to charity as their betters do. At the same income, a single mother on welfare is seven times less likely to give to charity than a working poor family that attends religious services.

In 2006 and 2007, John McCain, who files separately from his rich wife, gave 27.3 percent and 28.6 percent of his income to charity.

In 2005, Vice President Cheney gave 77 percent of his income to charity. He also shot a lawyer in the face, which I think should count for something.

In a single year, Schweizer reports, Rush Limbaugh "gave $109,716 to 'various individuals in need of assistance mainly due to family illnesses,' $52,898 to 'children's case management organizations,' including 'various programs to benefit families in need,' $35,100 for 'Alzheimer's community care -- day care for families in need,' and $40,951 for air conditioning units and heaters delivered to troops in Iraq."

(Rush also once gave $50 to Maxine Waters after mistaking her for a homeless person.)

The only way to pry a liberal from his money is to hold tickertape parades for him, allowing him to boast about his charity in magazines and on TV.

Isn't that what Jesus instructed in the Sermon on the Mount?

"So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do ... But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." (Matthew 6:2-4)

In my Bible, that passage is illustrated with a photo of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

At least the hypocrites in the Bible, Redmond, Wash., and Omaha, Neb., who incessantly brag about their charity actually do pony up the money.

Elected Democrats crow about how much they love the poor by demanding overburdened taxpayers fund government redistribution schemes, but can never seem to open their own wallets.

The only evidence we have that Democrats love the poor is that they consistently back policies that will create more of them."

Defend Free Speech at All Cost

Free Speech
Here are the words of Benjamin Franklin regarding his thoughts on free speech:

"Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom, and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech, which is the right of every man as far as by it he does not hurt or control the right of another; and this is the only check it ought suffer, and the only bounds it ought to know. This sacred privilege is so essential to free governments that the security of property and the freedom of speech always go together; and in those wretched countries where a man cannot call his tongue his own, he can scarce call anything else his own. Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech...

The administration of government is nothing else but the attendance of the trustees of the people upon the interest and affairs of the people; and as it is the part and sake alone all public matters are ought to be transacted, so be the ambition of all honest magistrates to have their deeds openly examined and publicly scanned. Only the wicked governors of men dread what is said of them."

Why the Concerns? This is America!
Pay attention Americans! Your free speech is under attack from this administration and now the United Nations! The FCC has "regulated" Net Neutrality so they can control the content of the Internet news. Now the United Nations is also making a play to control the Internet. They must all be stopped or freedom will be dead. Speak now or forevermore hold your peace. Defend your God given rights or loose them to posterity!

Big Government Always Fails

Big Government Will Help Me
This is a fallacy! If you think that relying on the government is the answer to solving YOUR problems, take a hard look at New York City as the perfect example of Big Government in action. Citizens are screaming that the Sanitation Union is NOT getting their job done clearing the roads. New York streets are still impassable four days after the blizzard.

Citizens may have a valid point. There have been accusations that the Sanitation Union is slowing down and milking the overtime. Recall Rahm Emanual's remarks that "you can't pass up a good crisis." (In other words - use this emergency as an excuse to get more paid overtime at the expense of the people). Since it is next to impossible to fire a union employee, there may be some truth to the rumor. One thing for sure, the response to the snowfall was totally inadequate. Another thing is that it proves that the government was NOT capable of dealing with this problem in a timely manner.

People Are Dying
"Dial 911 and DIE" by Richard W. Stevens is a must read book because it describes why you cannot rely on the government to save you in times of disaster. Unfortunately people in New York are finding this out the hard way. Here are a few examples:
  • Side roads remain unplowed causing traffic jams of horrendous proportions.

  • NYC subway lines are still inoperative and remain suspended making commuters unable to get into/out of the city.

  • Major airports (although cleared), are running behind with hundreds of passengers waiting for service that they may now be leaving the City until NEXT YEAR!

  • A newborn baby died after the parents called 911 and waited 9 hours before the city responded to their emergency.

  • A woman living in Brooklyn waited over 30 hours after calling an ambulance before it arrived.

  • There are few publicized stories about the Police Department responses, but you can bet they aren't good either.

Meanwhile the government officials are making a plethora of excuses ranging from "There were too many people on the streets..." to blaming their poor response on "Mother Nature." How lame is that?

The shocking truth is that Big Government cannot take care of you - ESPECIALLY in an emergency. YOU have to be prepared to step forward and be responsible for yourself and your family! If not, you could die waiting for the government!

Action To Take
Get educated quickly. Learn how to face Armageddon by yourself. Attend a Survival Seminar. If you were a Tea Party Member or joined the 911 Project, you would already have had this training available! Get a book on survival. Learn about food storage. Don't just be the victim when the SHXT hits the fan!

How Progressive is Your Rep?

A Non-Partisan Approach to Voting
The next time you vote you should know whether your existing Representative or Senator has a voting record that supports the Progressive (Socialist/Marxist) agenda. Happy Days! Now there is a tool that actually examines the voting records as reported, and ranks them accordingly in a non-biased way. Too bad you didn't have this in November huh?

ProgressivePunch.org
ProgressivePunch.org is a non-partisan website that contains a searchable database of Congressional voting records. Before you get all turned-off. STOP! It's easy to use and will be a big help to you in tracking your representatives. The higher the overall score, the more Progressive they are.

It shows you the performance and voting record of Congress for 160 different categories. You can get as much (or little) of the details as you want. You choose what to drill-down to find info on what matters most to YOU!

This is a free service and will show you whether your representatives are voting the way you want them to vote on the issues that concern you the most. it also helps you keep up with them so you can follow how they are voting on YOUR behalf!

How It Works
There are three ways to use the site, as follows:

1) Search by Members of Congress - Select your Representative or Senator and see how they are ranked overall. Then drill-down on specific issues.

2) Search by Issue Choose an issue category and see their voting results. Simple!

3) Search by Roll Call VoteChoose Senate or House, the year, and the number of the roll-call vote. Wa-lah, the results!

Death Panels Return!

US Constitution
The new Congress will be treated with a reading of the US Constitution as part of the opening ceremonies. Excellent! However, someone better send a copy to Obama because although he's supposed to be a Constitutional Scholar, he does NOT KNOW THE CONSTITUTION because he defies and violates it all the time!

End Run
This President thinks that he's above the law of the land. When he tried to pass legislation to control the Internet, there weren't enough votes. So he wrote a presidential Directive and the courts knocked that down. So then he ordered (or his FCC Czar Mark Llyod) the FCC to "regulate" the Internet. Recall, the FCC is Violating the Constitution because it "regulates" speech and content over the airwaves. Their latest takeover is Net Neutrality (Fairness Doctrine for the Internet to control news and other content).

Now Obama is resurrecting DEATH PANELS for the aged! Remember, these are the panels that "advise" the elderly on how they should die and avoid expensive treatments to save the government money. Of course Americans were told by the Progressives that there were no such things in ObamaCare.

Well, they are coming back thanks to Obama! He wants Death Panels and is going to write a Presidential Directive that will implement this into ObamaCare. His administration is busy pressing forward to enact measures on "end-of-life-planning" which is a euphemism for DEATH Panel! (The government decides whether you receive treatment or not). Funny, that when the law is passed a Presidential Directive cannot be "passed" to alter it's meaning or content. Apparently, Obama and his cronies never read or don't care about the Constitution. They just do as they Damn please. If no one complains, they get away with the violation. Don't let them get away with this underhanded behavior. Hold the ALL accountable.

Action To Take
Start complaining loud and clearly that you do NOT WANT ANY MODIFICATIONS TO INCLUDE DEATH PANELS! Tell Congress to enact legislation that reduces these abused Presidential Directives. And tell Congress to Repeal ObamaCare because it is unconstitutional as well.

Guest Article - Internet Takeover

Save the Net - Abolish the FCC

By David Harsanyi: A columnist at The Denver Post and the author of Nanny State

"Because there exists no area of human activity that couldn't benefit from more paternalistic attention ... Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the Federal Communications Commission to your Web browser.

Congressional Democrats cannot find the votes to pass "network neutrality." No problem. Three unelected officials will impose rules on hundreds of millions of satisfied online consumers. A federal appeals court stops the FCC from employing authority over the Internet. Again, not a problem. Three out of five FCC commissioners can carve out some temporary wiggle room, because, as any crusading technocrat knows, the most important thing is getting in the door.

It's not that we don't need the FCC's meddling (or worse); it's that we don't need the FCC at all. Rather than expanding the powers—which always seem to grow—of this outdated bureaucracy, Congress should be finding ways to eliminate it.

Why would we want a prehistoric bureaucracy overseeing one of the past century's great improvements? As a bottom-up, unregulated, and "under-taxed" market in which technological innovation, free speech, and competition thrive—at affordable prices, no less—the Internet poses a crisis of ideology, not commerce, for the FCC.

It's about control and relevance. What else can explain the proactive rescue of the Web from capitalistic abuses that reside exclusively in the imaginations of a handful of progressive ideologues?

What is the FCC doing? It's complicated, and in some ways, it's irrelevant. It claims that regulatory power will ensure that consumers enjoy an "open Internet." (With more broadband providers than ever, is there anything more open than the Internet?) But the FCC can censor speech. And once the FCC can regulate Internet service providers, those providers will be more compliant and more interested in making censors happy.

The FCC also can hand out favors that hurt competition. And as Lawrence Lessig, a professor at Harvard Law School, wrote in 2008, "economic growth requires innovation. Trouble is, Washington is practically designed to resist it. Built into the DNA of the most important agencies created to protect innovation, is an almost irresistible urge to protect the most powerful instead."

Even as Chairman Julius Genachowski claims that he will employ a "light touch," the FCC leaves open the possibility that it will use the Title II docket to classify broadband as a public utility—and, as you know, nothing says progress and modernization like "utility."

The same organization that forced all consumers to buy Ma Bell-made telephones for decades, the same FCC that enforced speech codes via radio "fairness doctrines," the same FCC that took two decades after its invention to OK cellular technology for the marketplace and acted similarly sluggishly with cable and satellite innovation has no business online. It has a history of hurting consumers, not protecting them. (Unless you need protection from fleeting expletives and the once-a-decade nipple controversy.)

It is likely that a new Congress—or perhaps the courts—will undo this regulatory power play. And though "net neutrality," or "open Internet" (no one needs to worry; doublespeak is still flourishing), may not survive, it reminds us that the FCC's institutional positions conflict with the vibrancy and freedom of the Internet.

Positions that are as archaic as they are detrimental."

Great Article - But...
This is a great article. However, it omits one important fact. The FCC is AGAINST the LAW! Created by Progressive President FDR, the Telecommunications Act of 1934 violates the 1st Amendment because the FCC "regulates" content AND speech over the airwaves! Has anyone ever challenged this? It is totally AGAINST the US Constitution and the FCC should be ABOLISHED!!

Guest Article - EPA Takeovers...

The EPA Says "Bah, Humbug
By Timothy Lee

"Not even Ebenezer Scrooge had the stomach to fire people during the holidays.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), however, plans to move full speed ahead with new regulations on January 2 that will likely cost many Americans their jobs before the New Year’s Eve party hats have even been put away.

In a nutshell, the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule will treat emissions from renewable biomass energy the same as emissions from the use of fossil fuels, despite the fact that both policymakers and scientists have long considered biomass emissions to be carbon-neutral due to the life cycle of the forests from which biomass is produced.

This new rule and regulatory uncertainty could spell the end of the biomass energy industry by removing the carbon-neutral status of biomass and, consequently, the biggest incentive to continue investing in it. Recent estimates have shown that biomass generated from forest byproducts could supply as much as 15 percent of the nation’s renewable energy by 2021, yet this will likely never be realized if biomass producers are forced to comply with arbitrary, unfair and unnecessary regulations like those in the Tailoring Rule.

Unfortunately, the Tailoring Rule won’t just disincentivize the use of renewable biomass energy. It will also have widespread effects on our energy options, as well as jobs and the economy.

Forisk Consulting recently released a new study on the economic impact of the Tailoring Rule, which found that the regulations on biomass will result in the loss of over 134 renewable energy projects, up to 26,000 jobs, and $18 billion in capital investment. According to the study’s authors, 23 biomass energy projects have already been placed in limbo due to regulatory uncertainty. In Wisconsin, for example, Xcel Energy Inc. halted plans for a biomass energy plant that would have brought over 100 jobs to Ashland, Wisc., as well as a needed source of domestic power for the entire area. Xcel Energy cited the expected cost increases and regulatory uncertainty as reasons for canceling plans for the plant—and they are likely to be one of many energy companies doing the same.

The negative economic impact will be especially felt in Appalachia and rural parts of the South, the Pacific Northwest, and the Northeast, where biomass energy shows great promise as a source for domestic clean energy and innovative new jobs.

In addition to harming domestic renewable energy development and the economy, the EPA commits a crime that Mr. Scrooge would never commit: wasting money. In President Obama's “stimulus” program alone, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Energy have collectively spent more than $100 million of taxpayer money to promote biomass power production.

The new study by Forisk Consulting only further confirms what bipartisan governors, U.S. Senators, and U.S. Representatives, state and local lawmakers, scientists, and forestry industry insiders have been saying all along—that the Tailoring Rule will hurt energy development, jobs, and the economy at a time when we need all three to be thriving.

Even Representative Collin Peterson (D-MN), the outgoing Chair of the House Agriculture, said before the election, “[The EPA is] screwing things up. They’re raising costs for people, they’re raising the price of food, and I don’t think they’re accomplishing anything.”

The intransigent EPA isn’t yet listening to the bipartisan, nationwide outcry against the Tailoring Rule. Perhaps they will finally begin to pay attention to this latest round of hard facts about the impact of their regulations before it’s too late."

God Bless Obama

Seriously!
We should all be very thankful that Obama won the November 2008 election instead of John McCain. Why? Because Americans would not have awakened. Progressive McCain would have lulled Americans to sleep while pursuing the Progressive agenda. Instead, Obama has shocked America into seeing that our fundamental beliefs and freedoms are under attack.

Obama has shown Americans that before we elect the next President that we should take the time to learn as much as possible about the man/woman that we are supporting for the Office. If Americans would have done their job, they would have learned that Obama was raised by Communist parents and mentored by Marxists while growing up. They would have also discovered that he was unqualified to become the leader of the free world because he lacked any management, leadership, or finance qualifications - let alone any foreign affairs experience whatsoever. Instead, Americans were fooled by a man who gives good speaches (much like Hitler and Mussolini did without teleprompters).

Americans would have also learned that Obama has spent most of his life as a community organizer being trained by radical Saul Alinsky and following the tennants of extremists Cloward & Piven. It is no surprise that he has surrounded himself with Communists (Van Jones), Marxists (Anita Dunn), and extreme radicals (Mark Lloyd and Cass Sustein) in his administration. What more could you expect knowing his biography? We would have also learned that he is a true Narcisist - a dangerous "quality" for a man of high power.

Give Thanks
We owe Obama a big THANK YOU for making Americans aware that his agenda is out to destroy America ASAP by spending us into oblivion. We also learned that one man cannot do the job, even though he's trying as hard as possible. We also appreciate that he has some of the most powerful people in the world (George Soros) helping him to "Fundamentally Change America." John McCain would have been like Obama "Lite." Another Progressive with a much less ambitious agenda.

Thank Obama for giving us the Tea Party. Without him, it would never have come to pass. Now the Tea Party has become a strong political force and will remain so for some time. People have organized all over the USA to unit against Obama's "mild" form of tryanny. Now Americans are watching Washington closely and not permitting the old BS to continue any longer. Ironic that it took THIS President to actually make Congress accountable!! Thank YOU!

As we settle down to celebrate the birth of Christ, be thankful for what we have and remember to stand-up and fight for it.

More Checks & Balances Coming!

Good News Folks
Roughly 6 Red States will pick up new House of Representative Seats because of the 2010 Census results. Our nation's population is growing in the Red states in the South and the West.

The Census report indicated that our population is growing by about 9-10 percent in ten years since the last Census. That's dropped from 13-14% in the last Census.

What the Numbers Mean
What this boils down to is that several states will gain seats and a few will loose seats.The States to gain include Texas, Arizona, Nevada, South Carolina, Utah and Washington. Ohio and New York will loose two House Seats while Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey and Pennsylvania will each loose one seat. There are rumors circulating that Barney Frank's Congressional District may take a hit as well as Dennis Kucinich (D, OH). Gee, that's a real shame if it's true. We could loose two long-term Progressives without worrying. Barney Frank has been in office for over 30 years. That's WAY TOO LONG for the guy who was partly responsible for the mortgage and housing market failures!

Redistricting
These shifts in population growth will favor the Republicans and the Tea Party movement. This in-turn will have a strong effect on the 2012 Presidential election as well. Remember that the President is elected by the Electoral College and not by the popular vote. With this change in direction, the President will have to campaign more in the Red states because that's where the power has shifted in the Electoral College. Obama literally ignore the bulk of these places and devoted most of his time and money campaigning in the large coastal cities. This strategy will have to change in 2012.

The Census Bureau will begging releasing the new state apportionment numbers in February. This will cause states to re-draw Congressional Districts and decide who comes and who goes.

HOT DOG! We can't wait!

Food for Thought

Never Forget This
We get our rights from God and NOT from the government. For example: Government healthcare is NOT an unalienable right granted by the government.

We are endowed by our creator of certain inalienable rights like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. There's no guarantee that we will achieve this, but it can be possible if we try. Congress has no power whatsoever to grant you ANY rights - nor does the President. Congress can only pass laws. It's in the Constitution. Learn it well.

Government = The BIG Ripoff
Government promises:
  • Fiscal responsibility and then spends us into bankruptcy
  • Accountability and then ignores its constituents
  • Transparency and then promotes laws behind closed doors making secret deals
  • Integrity and then is scandalized with ethics violations that never get punished

We deserve better than this. Demand it. Don't tolerate anything less.

Big Government Makes Life Worse
Big government is a force whether you like what they do or not. They steal your money so they can spend it the way they deem fit. If you don't like it, want it, or believe their Progressive bunk, you still have to pay for it. If not, they come for you with guns and put you in jail. Big government makes you pay for whatever they are selling. They don't earn money they take it from you. This is wrong.

Seek Freedom
Remember this is still America. The people are the Masters of the government - regardless of whatever Big Government thinks. In Europe, the government is the Master of the people. Do you want it this way or the way the Founders established it? It IS YOUR choice!

The people are the protectors of freedom and the guardians of liberty. This is YOUR JOB! Question the government. Demand straight answers. Expect the truth and not more lies.

Do nothing and watch your liberties go away forever. Speak your voice loudly and hold Big Government accountable to the laws of the land.

Internet Takeover Today

Why Aren't Americans Paying Attention?
Don't Americans believe that their government is slowly taking away personal freedoms? Are they too busy with Christmas? Can't they see that the FCC is beginning a bold new move to CENSOR Internet content? Today marks the initiation of the government grabbing the Internet so it can give us "Net Neutrality."

That's just another name for the "Fairness Doctrine" which was the government's way of censoring content. Ask yourself this question: Why is the FCC allowed to control the content of radio and TV broadcasts? That's interfering with the 1st Amendment (free speech). The FCC is ILLEGAL. Has anyone ever protest this? Now because they have being "regulating" radio and TV waves for so long (illegally) they think that they can just take control over the Internet. They have no Constutional power to do this!

Where's the Outrage?
Don't you give a care about freedom? Are you just sitting back watching freedom disappear just like it did under the Nationalist Socialist Party (Nazi Party in Germany) in the 1930s? Are Americans THAT complacent? Apparently so.

There have been no loud voices speaking-out about what this government (and what the United Nations) are doing with regards to the Internet. This is disgusting and quite frightening! If Americans don't stand-up for their rights and freedoms, they will be lost and gone forever!

Action To Take
If you love your country, you have to speak-out against these BIG Government take-overs. Don't just watch as your freedoms are grabbed-up under the guise of "protection." That's how totalitarian government come into being. The people in Germany did nothing and look what happened to them. Stop being complacent and tell your government to stop this insanity.

Guest Article: 1st Amendment is DEAD!

The FCC's Threat to Internet Freedom
By ROBERT M. MCDOWELL: McDowell is a Republican commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission.

"Net neutrality' sounds nice, but the Web is working fine now. The new rules will inhibit investment, deter innovation and create a billable-hours bonanza for lawyers.

Tomorrow morning the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will mark the winter solstice by taking an unprecedented step to expand government's reach into the Internet by attempting to regulate its inner workings. In doing so, the agency will circumvent Congress and disregard a recent court ruling.

How did the FCC get here?
For years, proponents of so-called "net neutrality" have been calling for strong regulation of broadband "on-ramps" to the Internet, like those provided by your local cable or phone companies. Rules are needed, the argument goes, to ensure that the Internet remains open and free, and to discourage broadband providers from thwarting consumer demand. That sounds good if you say it fast.

Nothing is broken and needs fixing, however. The Internet has been open and freedom-enhancing since it was spun off from a government research project in the early 1990s. Its nature as a diffuse and dynamic global network of networks defies top-down authority. Ample laws to protect consumers already exist. Furthermore, the Obama Justice Department and the European Commission both decided this year that net-neutrality regulation was unnecessary and might deter investment in next-generation Internet technology and infrastructure.

Analysts and broadband companies of all sizes have told the FCC that new rules are likely to have the perverse effect of inhibiting capital investment, deterring innovation, raising operating costs, and ultimately increasing consumer prices. Others maintain that the new rules will kill jobs. By moving forward with Internet rules anyway, the FCC is not living up to its promise of being "data driven" in its pursuit of mandates—i.e., listening to the needs of the market.

It wasn't long ago that bipartisan and international consensus centered on insulating the Internet from regulation. This policy was a bright hallmark of the Clinton administration, which oversaw the Internet's privatization. Over time, however, the call for more Internet regulation became imbedded into a 2008 presidential campaign promise by then-Sen. Barack Obama. So here we are.

Last year, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski started to fulfill this promise by proposing rules using a legal theory from an earlier commission decision (from which I had dissented in 2008) that was under court review. So confident were they in their case, FCC lawyers told the federal court of appeals in Washington, D.C., that their theory gave the agency the authority to regulate broadband rates, even though Congress has never given the FCC the power to regulate the Internet. FCC leaders seemed caught off guard by the extent of the court's April 6 rebuke of the commission's regulatory overreach.

In May, the FCC leadership floated the idea of deeming complex and dynamic Internet services equivalent to old-fashioned monopoly phone services, thereby triggering price-and-terms regulations that originated in the 1880s. The announcement produced what has become a rare event in Washington: A large, bipartisan majority of Congress agreeing on something. More than 300 members of Congress, including 86 Democrats, contacted the FCC to implore it to stop pursuing Internet regulation and to defer to Capitol Hill.

Facing a powerful congressional backlash, the FCC temporarily changed tack and convened negotiations over the summer with a select group of industry representatives and proponents of Internet regulation. Curiously, the commission abruptly dissolved the talks after Google and Verizon, former Internet-policy rivals, announced their own side agreement for a legislative blueprint. Yes, the effort to reach consensus was derailed by... consensus.

After a long August silence, it appeared that the FCC would defer to Congress after all. Agency officials began working with House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman on a draft bill codifying network management rules. No Republican members endorsed the measure. Later, proponents abandoned the congressional effort to regulate the Net.

Still feeling quixotic pressure to fight an imaginary problem, the FCC leadership this fall pushed a small group of hand-picked industry players toward a "choice" between a bad option (broad regulation already struck down in April by the D.C. federal appeals court) or a worse option (phone monopoly-style regulation). Experiencing more coercion than consensus or compromise, a smaller industry group on Dec. 1 gave qualified support for the bad option. The FCC's action will spark a billable-hours bonanza as lawyers litigate the meaning of "reasonable" network management for years to come. How's that for regulatory certainty?

To date, the FCC hasn't ruled out increasing its power further by using the phone monopoly laws, directly or indirectly regulating rates someday, or expanding its reach deeper into mobile broadband services. The most expansive regulatory regimes frequently started out modest and innocuous before incrementally growing into heavy-handed behemoths.

On this winter solstice, we will witness jaw-dropping interventionist chutzpah as the FCC bypasses branches of our government in the dogged pursuit of needless and harmful regulation. The darkest day of the year may end up marking the beginning of a long winter's night for Internet freedom." [my emphasis]

Action To Take
This is nothing more than the Fairness Doctrine for the Internet. Scream loudly before your Internet voices are silenced once and for all. Progressives want to control your speech and this is a giant step in this direction! Let your representatives know that you believe that this action is unconstitutional. As a matter of fact, the FCC is unconswtitutional because it "regulates" (censors) speech over the airwaves! Think about that!

Govt Attacks Free Speech (Yet Again)

Federal Reserve Oversteps Authority
When Oklahoma Federal Reserve Bank Examiners ordered Payne County Bank officials to take-down all religious items (Christmas decorations) from public view on Friday, they were in effect, CENSORING free speech. Just because the examiners didn't like the religious overtone of the bank decorations, didn't give them ANY authority to order the removal of those items. That act was a direct assault on a religious freedom here in America. It was performed by representatives of the Federal Reserve Bank. The bank examiner claimed that "the religious items could discourage a person from seeking an application." Just the idea that they thought they could tell the ban what to do is appalling. If I don't like the Christmas decorations on YOUR house, I cannot order you to take them down. This is America - Remember? This country was founded on Judaeo-Christian beliefs.

Items Banned
The Federal Reserve banned the following:
  • Signs
  • Biblical verses
  • Religious crosses
  • Christmas pins
  • Web Site Links
  • "Religious themed messages" including personal jewelry

The bank was threatened "that failure to comply would result in referral of the matter to the Department of Justice for further enforcement actions." Quick, look over your shoulder for the Gestapo (Eric Holder)!

Representatives Object
Both Senator James Inhofe (R, OK) and Representative Frank Lucas (R, OK) wrote Ben Bernanke a letter stating: "This is an all out assault on the faith, values, and rights of the bank, its employees and the people of Perkins they serve." God bless these two representatives for defending their constituents!

How Dare the Fed!
If the Oklahoma representatives had said nothing, the bank would have complied to the government MISUSE of power. Instead, the government backed-down and withdrew their demands from the bank after hearing the opposition to their blatant abuse of power.

It must be clear that Progressives have infiltrated all parts of our government (including the Federal Reserve Bank) and that they are imposing "THEIR" views on OUR lives from every angle possible. This is what Political Correctness is all about.

We MUST stop them every time they try this. If we don't our freedoms will be lost.

KEEP UP THE FIGHT America it is relentless!

and...

Merry Christmas!

Rube Goldberg Congress

13% Approval - They Earned It!
Congress has had 10 years to "fix" the so-called Bush tax cuts. But no, instead, they waited until after the mid-term elections to even begin to think about it. This way it didn't affect their re-election results and helps create yet another "crisis" so they can jam legislation down our throats without reading it.

Mad, Who's Mad?
Just because we fired over 50 representatives in the House of Representatives doesn't mean that we are mad. However, it may indicate that the fired representatives are mad. Look at their recent behavior. With nothing to loose, they tried to pass (and almost did) a $1.1 Trillion dollar Omnibus Spending package without reading it. Being fired, they thought that it was still OK to include over 6,600 earmarks (pork spending) even though voters indicated that wasteful spending must stop. Frankly, they just don't give a SHXT!

Fired Get Benefits
Unfortunately, fired government representatives receive fringe benefits - even though they were fired. That's right, they still will collect 80% of their $175,000 (or $140,000) PLUS free medical insurance coverage for life. All this for just having to serve a measly two years in Washington. What's wrong with that picture?

Quick Fix
When the new Congress begins on January 5, 2011, why not ask your new reps to introduce new legislation to fix this problem? Here's what it should contain:


  • Term Limits. Max 2 consecutive terms for Senators and 3 terms for Congressmen.
  • No retirement benefits.
  • No more free medical benefits.
  • Eliminate Lame Ducks: Upon receipt of certified election results, representatives are through immediately. Pack-up, go home, and stop legislating. Swear-in the new winners immediately.
  • Make Congress part-time. 6 Months maximum.
  • Cut Congressional pay to $40,000.
  • Make it ILLEGAL for special interest groups to donate money to Congress.
  • Any Representative found guilty of ethics violations will be fired immediately. A special election will be held ASAP to fill the vacant seat.
  • All Congressional Representatives must travel on commercial airlines and be subjected to TSA body searches. No more freebie airplanes.
  • Demand legislation for a balanced budget.
  • Make it against Federal Law NOT TO PASS A BUDGET with penalty of imprisonment.

Squeaky Wheel
Be the squeaky wheel in your District. Let your new legislators know who you are, where you live and what you expect from them. Do so frequently!

UN Wants Control Over Internet!

Internet Control & CENSORSHIP
If you thought that it was bad that this administration wants to take control and censor the Internet, we have one better. Now the United Nations thinks that they should take control over it! OH REALLY? Think about this: The United Nations wants to control speech and content over the Internet. So who died an put them in charge of free speech?

Sovereignty - What's That?
Who are the leaders of the UN anyway. It is composed mainly of despots and dictators of various entities. They REALLY have no jurisdiction over America, it's laws, or its regulations. But now they want to take over the Internet! Sovereignty means "a government free from external control." "Sovereignty is the quality of having supreme, independent authority over a territory."

Apparently the UN dictators forgot this definition because they have had it THEIR way too LONG and forgot what freedom means! Funny how a totalitarian state forgets!

Outrageous!
The idea that the United Nations actually believes that it's OK to even consider this idea is totally OUTRAGEOUS! It's bad enough that our own government is trying to silence free speech. Think about what it would be like if foreign nations decided what you can/cannot post on Twitter and Facebook - let alone on personal blogs. Things would be a LOT different Comrades! The NEW WORLD ORDER is busy at work at the United Nations.

Action To Take
Don't just sit there. Tell Congress and the State Department exactly how you feel about your freedoms being usurped by some foreign entities. Don't let this go without complaining as loud as you can. It's a foreign attack on free speech.

Progressives Don't Give a SHXT!

Have You Ever Seen Anyone Fired?
Modern-day office protocol after firing somone is to walk them out-of-the office with an escourt upon firing them-immediately. Why? To keep them from doing damage to the company that just fired them. It can be quite dangerous to leave a fired employee alone and unguarded to access the computer systems and company records. Washington needs to learn this lesson.

Lame Ducks Are Flipping You Off
In case you haven't been paying attention to Washington, the Progressive Lame Ducks that we just fired are actively giving us all the finger! They have been quite busy continuing to shove their Progressive agenda down OUR throats once again - even though they have been fired. Knowing that they have nothing to loose, they are ignoring what Americans mandated in the elections and are doing their usual thing. They have tried to pass the following:

  • The DREAM Act (Amnesty for ILLEGALS
  • Reparations for Black and American Indians
  • Food Act (control over what farmers can and can't plant - what you can eat/not eat)
  • What your kids can eat in school (Michell Obama's Food Police laws)
  • Death Tax (Making the estate of the dead give 35-50% of lifetime earnings which have already been previously taxed)
  • Bush Tax Cuts (Raising taxes on Americans during the GREAT RECESSION)
  • Omnibus Spending Bill 2011 (Bloated spending bill with over 6,600 Earmarks using borrowed taxpayer monies). Watch Obama sign it into law after he has condemned Earmarks. He's a LYING BASTARD TOO!
  • Unemployment extensions for an additional 13 months. (We have to borrow BILLIONS from China in order to do this.)

The list goes on, but you get the point. Why listen to Americans when Progressive Lame Ducks still remain in office? They can do as they Damn please and we cannot stop them!

Watch The GOP TOO!
Speaking of Progressives, there are Republicans who behave just like our Progressive enemies because they too are Progressives. They are voting for Entitlements, making deals, and support the new Omnibus Bill. Learn who they are and remember them at election time in the next election cycle. Publicise who they are and embarrass them. Make them feel uncomfortable for being TRAITORS to their oath of office and to the Constitution. They don't deserve to stay in office. They're worse then their courterparts because they claim to be "Conservatives" but lie and vote like Progressives.

Another Omnibus Spending Bill

Name Tells It All
The name of the new Omnibus Spending bill tells it all. It's huge and we can't afford it!

AMERICA TAKE WARNING: We are about to see another Christmas Eve TAX & SPEND surprise from the Progressive Bastards in Congress. The Lame Ducks are ignoring Americans!

SOS (Same Old SHXT)
The Progressive Lame Ducks are at their old tricks once again. Now they want to spend Another $1.1 TRILLION dollars that Americans do NOT have. The progressive movement is INSANE and is truely trying to destroy America by spending it into oblivion! They are following the Cloward & Piven strategy to bring America to its knees.

Loaded With Earmarks!
The new spending bill proposed by the Lame Ducks contains BILLIONS of dollars in earmarks (PORK spending). This is one of the main reasons why we voted these BASTARDS out-of-office in November. Here are a few of the earmarks that are included in the bill, their amounts and their sponsors:

  • Chicago Avaiation Education Initiative, $250,000 Rep. Rush (D, IL)
  • Old Taylor Road Roundabout, $500, 000, Rep. Childers (D, MS) & Wicher (R, MS)
  • Bronx Zoo Transportation Facility, $500,000, Rep. Serrano (D, NY)
  • E. stadium Bridges Replacement Project, $500,000, Rep. Dingell (D, MI)
  • Illinois Pedestrian & Bicycle Road, $2.5 Million, Sen. Durbin (D, IL)
  • Iowa Depertment of Education, $6 Million, Rep. Hackern (D, IA)
  • Advanced Genetic Technologies, $650,000, Sen McConnell (R, AK)
  • Maple Research, $165,000, Rep. Leahy (D, VT)
  • Arthropod Damage Control, $1 Million, Harry Reid (D, NV)
  • National Bio and Agro Denence Facility, $40 Million, Sen. Brownback (R, KS)
  • Fish & Wildlife Service, $6 Million, Sen. Inoye, (D, Hawaii)

Note Who These Bastards Are
The representatives and senators who supported these earmarks are NOT ALL DEMOCRATS. They also include PROGRESSIVE REPUBLICANS. Remember their names and vote them out of office in the next election cycle!!

6,600 Earmarks in All
So the Lame Ducks are at it again. Business as usual. We cannot afford to keep doing this to our future America! Senator Jim McDermit says "America loudly demanded an end to the runaway spending, but Democrats are intent on raiding every taxpayer dollar that the can grab from the Treasury on their way out of power."

Wake The Hell Up America
Do you get it yet? These Bastards are destroying America and we are just sitting by watching it happen. Don't support this behavior any longer. Get mad and tell Congress to stop SPENDING us into Hell!

Why Negotiate With Lame Ducks?

The Bogus Tax Deal
No matter what the DEMs call it, the Bush Tax Cuts, or the Obama Tax Increase, the deal being "negotiated" now on Congress is just another STIMULUS package with a different name. Please be aware that the DEMs are using the "CRISIS" mentality (that they created) so they can jam their agenda down OUR throats once again. This is BS and it has to stop.

Is a Delay Really Better?
Think about it. The Lame Duck Congress is trying to add on their extra bells and whistles (like always) so they can get some pork sent home and help make more people totally dependent on BIG Government - at America's expense. What everyone forgets is that we do NOT have ANY money to keep doing business the same old way anymore. Why should we have to borrow from China to pay for all that the Lame Ducks want anyway? They are leaving office soon. Good riddance. Why negotiate ANYTHING with these BASTARDS?

All this "new" legislation does is delay the tax increase. It solves nothing. It does not prevent taxes from ever rising. It also resurrects the Death tax which is totally unfair. Frankly, we can do better than that. Eliminate the tax increase altogether by replacing the existing tax structure with a FLAT TAX of 12 % for EVERYONE. Yes, EVERYONE! No more BS about 46% of Americans not having to pay taxes any longer. Have everyone pay their fair share instead of trying to re-distribute the wealth. No more special interests getting tax breaks, and no more excuses for everyone NOT paying ANY taxes. The Progressive redistribution model SUCKS and is un-American! It's Marxism with a different name.

Aren't you getting tired of having Progressives telling you what to do? Their brainstorm idea will add to the deficit enormously! Is that a good idea during these bad economic times?

What About Unemployment Insurance?
Currently, people who are out of work can collect unemployment benefits for 2 YEARS. The Lame Ducks want to add an addition 13 more months making those individuals totally dependent on BIG Government for assistance for a total of over 3 years. This is wrong because after these 13 months pass, Progressives will want to extend unemployment benefits even longer. Ask yourself: How long should the government pay people to not to work? 3 years? 4 years? 5, 6, 7 years? Really, how long is fair? Can the government pay people forever not to work? Is that realistic?

How about this question: Who's going to want to hire you after you have been out of work for over three years? No one, because you will be viewed as a looser with no skills whatsoever! That's just not true. Everyone has some talents.

So why should every American be responsible to pay for a government program that does nothing to help those unemployed find gainful employment? Couldn't the money be better spend training those people for a new career instead?

It's a Broken Model
The Progressive model is broken. It does NOT make life better - Just the opposite! We cannot afford to keep bleeding America into economic collapse. This is EXACTLY what Progressive are doing. AND it's DELIBERATE. Obama is no angel. He's in the driver seat! This IS the direction Progressive want for America! The Cloward & Piven strategy is to collapse America. Isn't that what the Progressives are really doing?

Are you better off than before Obama took office to "fix" things? Hardly! This administration has made things worse than before. No more excuses. Obama cannot blame anyone but himself for the current state of the economy. Especially after HIS policies (Stimulus and massive spending) have put us where we are today! It's time to stop digging the hole and wake up!

Let the Deal Go Down
Skip the deal being jammed through Congress about taxes. Let the new Congress deal with it in a few days. Blame the Democrats for this mess because they are the ones who deliberately postponed solving this problem before the elections. Let the new Congress pass some REAL tax reforms that are FAIR for everyone. Get off the Progressive band wagon once and for all! Their way does not work and we need to move forward for a change.

Boy Scout Motto

Any Scouts Out There?
If you're not too old to remember, the Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared." This is even a more timely message as we approach the Christmas holidays. Holiday shopping should take on some different dimensions this year because of what's happening to our economy. The forces against the United States seem overwhelming at times. Consequently, being prepared should help you to help others when the SHXT hits the fan.

Items to Consider
There are so many things we should all buy, but buying the "perfect" gift this year may be easier than you think. Here are some practical and useful items that you should consider as gifts for those you care about:

  • A Ham Radio-The quality three brands are: Icom, Kenwood and Yaesu. Remember when the SHXT hits the fan, you cell phone will be useless! A ham radio (2 meter variety) will afford you the ability to communicate when all forms of "regular" communications are compromised.

  • Bug-Out Bag-When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Always have what you need to survive for a minimum of three days packed and ready to go at all times. You can find a good bag for about $22 at CheaperThanDirt.com. Fill it with the bare essentials. Don't know what they are? Google "Bug Out Bags" and find out.

  • MREs-"Meals Ready to Eat" are the same foods that our troops have when stuck in a foxhole. You should have at least 3-7 per person. More if you can afford them.

  • First Aid KitAlways carry one in your car and have one at your home. Make your own kit with things recommended. Don't know what goes in one? Google "First Aid Kits" and find out.

  • Puzzles, Games, Cards-Have anything that can be entertaining that doesn't use batteries.

Of Course there's More...
Yes, now you should be getting the idea. There are more things you can buy as practical gifts. No more small appliances for Mom or neckties for Dad. They deserve more because you care for them. What are you waiting for, start thinking and get shopping!

Lame Duck Agenda

Look at Congress
Don't look to Washington for any help! All they can do is muddle things up. This is just another reason why you cannot count on the government and why they should stay out of your life.

The Progressive Democrats in Congress want to halt the so-called "Bush tax cuts". The DEMs are especially interested in the estate tax. They want as much of whatever you leave in your estate. They want tax laws to expire so they can literally STEAL your money after you die.

Congressman Keith Ellison (D, MN) says that the Democrats must create a real crisis to force the GOP on the Bush tax cuts. What he wants is to let the tax laws expire and all Americans receive higher taxes. In addition, Ellision says that the Democrats are "giving away trillions of dollars" by not taxing estates at a higher rate (the death tax).

First, why is it that the DEMs like Ellison actually think that it's THEIR money to begin with? While accumulating wealth and security in a lifetime, Americans pay taxes. The money that you earn after taxes belongs to you - NOT THE GOVERNMENT! Someone please tell this to Ellison.

Second, the death tax is totally unfair. When You die, the DEMs want to take whatever you have acquired in personal wealth to help feed their spending urges! The deceased have already paid taxes on their estate and the DEMs want to grab up to 50% more of your estate (property and other holdings) so they can make the dead pay their fair share. REALLY?

These attitudes are what got us in serious debt troubles to begin with and they are only making things worse. Let's distribute the wealth. Go Screw!

Lame Ducks Suck
Gee, in the "Real World" when someone gets fired, they are escorted out of the office before they can do any damage to the company. However, in government, we allow the clowns we just fired to stay several more months so they can screw-up the country even more than they have before the election. This doesn't make any sense.

The Lame Ducks have nothing to loose and they are just getting even for you throwing them out of office. They should loose their powers immediately after the election!

Federal Reserve Bank - Who Are They?

Non-Political My Ass
The Federal Reserve Bank is a super-secret organization that is supposed to be non-political. Oh Really? We don't even know who they are. Then why has it given your tax dollars to foreign banks, foreign companies and foreign governments to bail them out? These bailouts have nothing to do with our financial crisis and should not be part of the Stimulus dollars they have given away to foreign entities!

Monitary Policies Are a Secret
Why are our monetary policies kept a secret and insolated from national debate? How come American taxpayers are not involved in ANY discussions on how the Federal Reserve Bank spends OUR money? We have no voice whatsoever. Why? We have a right to know how OUR money is spent!

The Constitution Says...
The Constitution says that ONLY Congress shall coin money and set the value thereof. It does NOT give a private bank these powers for good reasons! Thank Progressives in 1913 for changing that and giving away these powers to private individuals - in a clear VIOLATION of the Constitution!

Ben Bernanke's Record
Ben Bernanke (Federal Reserve Chairman) has a poor record. So far every thing he has done is a failure (unless he wants the dollar to fail). His policies of monitizing the debt are destroying our currency. This shows that the Fed has too much power and is accountable to no one! Bernanke is accountable to no one. There are no consequences for HIS actions while we pay for it every day of our lives.

No Recourse
Currently we have no recourse with the Fed. This must change. They have too much power and we need to control it. We must TAKE BACK the powers that Congress gave away in 1913 under the Progressives.

Right now the Fed can bail out anyone they decide is too big to fail using YOUR tax dollars. This has got to stop. Because they print money our dollars loose value as does everything we own. All because of the Fed. They MUST STOP their "Quantitative Easing" which is a funny way of saying that they are flooding the market by printing money!

Action To Take
Support Congressman Ron Paul (R, TX) in his efforts to audit the Fed and to take back the Congressional powers we lost long ago. Make Bernanke accountable for every penny he is responsible for and hold his feet to the fire!

Thank The Republicans for Amnesty

DREAM Act Passed in the HR
Just when you think that you voted the right way in the mid-term elections, Congress kicks you in the face once again. The House of Representatives just passed the DREAM Act which gives AMNESTY for ILLEGALS aged 16-35. Swell! That's the Lame Duck Congress sticking it in your face AMERICA! The US Senate votes on it TODAY!

Thank Republicans for Their Lack of Support
If you have any doubts about your representatives, here is a list of the 8 Republicans who supported HR 6497 AMNESTY for ILLEGALS:
  • Ahn “Joseph” Cao, Louisiana
  • Mike Castle, Delaware
  • Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Florida
  • Mario Diaz-Balart, Florida
  • Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Florida
  • Charles Djou, Hawaii
  • Vern Ehlers, Michigan
  • Bob Inglis, South Carolina

America, remember to vote-out these BASTARDS in the next election cycle! They do NOT SUPPORT Conservative values!

Who Ignored to Even Vote
Before you go and thank your representative, take a moment to make sure that they even took the time or effort to vote on the DREAM Act. There are 11 Republicans who could not even be bothered to be there for the vote. They would have made the difference if they HAD voted. They are:
  • Brian Bilbray, California
  • Roy Blunt, Missouri
  • Steve Buyer, Indiana
  • Mary Fallin, Oklahoma
  • Phil Gingrey, Georgia
  • Kay Granger, Texas
  • Parker Griffith, Alabama
  • Kenny Marchant, Texas
  • Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Washington State
  • George Radanovich, California
  • Marlin Stutzman, Indiana

Stop and Think About The 11
If you think that it's bad that 8 REPUBLICANS voted for the DREAM Act, at least they had the conviction to vote and get their name on the record. The 11 that didn't vote are WORSE! We are paying them $175,000 and they won't even show up for the vote. What's wrong with that picture? Plenty!

Action To Take
Things won't get better until YOU act. Tell your US Senators to vote "NO" on the DREAM Act today! If your House representative is on either list mentioned above, you need to remember them and vote their sorry ass out-of-office in the next election cycle! Convince others that they have to go to ensure they will be gone!

Government Discrimination

Profiling by the Government
I thought that discrimination was against the law. Not so, if you're the US government under the Obama administration. They play favorites (discriminate) all the time. The Democrats complain all the time about the rich not paying enough, but it's OK for them to get preferential treatment on ObamaCare.

Here is one classic example where a non-elected bureaucrat discriminates against the American public in plain sight and no one gives a crap! EXAMPLE: ObamaCare!

If you have a so-called "Cadillac" insurance policy or if you cannot afford to pay employees for ObamaCare, if you're pals with Obama, you get "exempted." Noteably in the list below are the large numbers of UNIONS getting special favors because Obama is in bed with them. THIS IS DISGUSTING, as well as, unfair as well as, UNLAWFUL to discriminate!

Guest Article - Global Warming is DEAD

What happened to the 'warmest year on record': The truth is global warming has halted
By David Rose of the DailyMail in the UK.

"A year ago tomorrow, just before the opening of the UN Copenhagen world climate summit, the British Meteorological Office issued a confident prediction. The mean world temperature for 2010, it announced, 'is expected to be 14.58C, the warmest on record' - a deeply worrying 0.58C above the 1961--1990 average.

World temperatures, it went on, were locked inexorably into an everrising trend: 'Our experimental decadal forecast confirms previous indications that about half the years 2010-2019 will be warmer than the warmest year observed so far - 1998.'

Met Office officials openly boasted that they hoped by their statements to persuade the Copenhagen gathering to impose new and stringent carbon emission limits - an ambition that was not to be met.

Last week, halfway through yet another giant, 15,000 delegate UN climate jamboree, being held this time in the tropical splendour of Cancun in Mexico, the Met Office was at it again.

Never mind that Britain, just as it was last winter and the winter before, was deep in the grip of a cold snap, which has seen some temperatures plummet to minus 20C, and that here 2010 has been the coolest year since 1996.

Globally, it insisted, 2010 was still on course to be the warmest or second warmest year since current records began.

But buried amid the details of those two Met Office statements 12 months apart lies a remarkable climbdown that has huge implications - not just for the Met Office, but for debate over climate change as a whole.

Read carefully with other official data, they conceal a truth that for some, to paraphrase former US VicePresident Al Gore, is really inconvenient: for the past 15 years, global warming has stopped.

This isn't meant to be happening. Climate science orthodoxy, as promulgated by bodies such as the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit (CRU), says that temperatures have risen and will continue to rise in step with increasing CO2 in the atmosphere, and make no mistake, with the rapid industrialisation of China and India, CO2 levels have kept on going up.

According to the IPCC and its computer models, without enormous emission cuts the world is set to get between two and six degrees warmer during the 21st Century, with catastrophic consequences.

Last week at Cancun, in an attempt to influence richer countries to agree to give £20 billion immediately to poorer ones to offset the results of warming, the US-based International Food Policy Research Institute warned that global temperatures would be 6.5 degrees higher by 2100, leading to rocketing food prices and a decline in production.

The maths isn't complicated. If the planet were going to be six degrees hotter by the century's end, it should be getting warmer by 0.6 degrees each decade; if two degrees, then by 0.2 degrees every ten years. Fortunately, it isn't.

Actually, with the exception of 1998 - a 'blip' year when temperatures spiked because of a strong 'El Nino' effect (the cyclical warming of the southern Pacific that affects weather around the world) - the data on the Met Office's and CRU's own websites show that global temperatures have been flat, not for ten, but for the past 15 years.

They go up a bit, then down a bit, but those small rises and falls amount to less than their measuring system's acknowledged margin of error. They have no statistical significance and reveal no evidence of any trend at all.

When the Met Office issued its December 2009 pre-There-diction, it was clearly expecting an even bigger El Nino spike than happened in 1998 - one so big that it would have dragged up the decade's average.

But though it was still successfully trying to influence media headlines during Cancun last week by saying that 2010 might yet end up as the warmest year, the small print reveals the Met Office climbdown. Last year it predicted that the 2010 average would be 14.58C. Last week, this had been reduced to 14.52C.

That may not sound like much. But when one considers that by the Met Office's own account, the total rise in world temperatures since the 1850s has been less than 0.8 degrees, it is quite a big deal. Above all, it means the trend stays flat.

Meanwhile, according to an analysis yesterday by David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, 2010 had only two unusually warm months, March and April, when El Nino was at its peak.

The data from October to the end of the year suggests that when the final figure is computed, 2010 will not be the warmest year at all, but at most the third warmest, behind both 1998 and 2005.

There is no dispute that the world got a little warmer over some of the 20th Century. (Between 1940 and the early Seventies, temperatures actually fell.)

But little by little, the supposedly settled scientific 'consensus' that the temperature rise is unprecedented, that it is set to continue to disastrous levels, and that it is all the fault of human beings, is starting to fray.

Earlier this year, a paper by Michael Mann - for years a leading light in the IPCC, and the author of the infamous 'hockey stick graph' showing flat temperatures for 2,000 years until the recent dizzying increase - made an extraordinary admission: that, as his critics had always claimed, there had indeed been a ' medieval warm period' around 1000 AD, when the world may well have been hotter than it is now.

Other research is beginning to show that cyclical changes in water vapour - a much more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide - may account for much of the 20th Century warming.

Even Phil Jones, the CRU director at the centre of last year's 'Climategate' leaked email scandal, was forced to admit in a littlenoticed BBC online interview that there has been 'no statistically significant warming' since 1995.

One of those leaked emails, dated October 2009, was from Kevin Trenberth, head of climate analysis at the US government's National Centre for Atmospheric Research and the IPCC's lead author on climate change science in its monumental 2002 and 2007 reports.

He wrote: 'The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment, and it is a travesty that we can't.'

After the leak, Trenberth claimed he still believed the world was warming because of CO2, and that the 'travesty' was not the 'pause' but science's failure to explain it.

The question now emerging for climate scientists and policymakers alike is very simple. Just how long does a pause have to be before the thesis that the world is getting hotter because of human activity starts to collapse?"

Conclusion
Don't believe the LIES about Global Warming. It is NOT proven science. It is politics for monitary gains for its supporters. NEVER support Cap & Trade EITHER!

Don't Be Fooled Again

FDR Created the FCC
The Telecommunications Act of 1934 created the Federal Communications Comission (FCC). This government department was allegidly created to oversee radio frequencies and bandwidths for radio broadcasting. Nowadays the FCC tries to "regulate" everything they can get their BIG GOVERNMENT hands on - including the Internet.

The FCC IS Unconstitutional
It's true. The Federal Communications Comission is inherently unconstitutional. How can this be? Think about it. The FCC regulates CONTENT of all radio and network broadcasting in the USA. It tells broadcasters (including radio, TV, and ham radio) what they can - and CANNOT say on the airwaves. It limits spoken words.

The FCC tried to re-classify the Internet under Title 2 of the Telecommunications Act and were rejected by the courts. Next they tried the same under Title 1. NADA! Congressman Markey (D, MA) tried to get the Net Neutrality bill going in Congress, but only got 27 co-sponsors. So it failed in Congress. Nevertheless the FCC continues to ignore the law and keep trying to grab power - at YOUR expense.

What About the 1st Amendment?
Doesn't the 1st Amendment guarantee the right to free speech? Yes it does! So why do we have a government agency like the FCC overseeing the distribution of speech over the airwaves? The FCC regulates the content on broadcast networks. THAT'S unconstitutional because that's a form of censorship! It's MARXIST to "regulate" radio and TV content.

They're Lying
Don't believe the government when they say that they are trying to "protect you." Look at how well that is working out with the TSA thing at privately owned airports. The FCC claims that they are trying to protect us from Internet Service Providers (ISPs). They want to force them to treat all Internet content "equally." This is the Fairness Doctrine re-emposed on us only now over the Internet!

Net Neutrality Regulation
Net neutrality is a euphemism for the "Fairness Doctrine." It's just another BIG Government grab for more power and control over YOUR lives. Progressives in this administration want to bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Recall this was the "regulation" that required equal time for oposing views. If you had a speaker on the Right for 15 minutes, you had to have a speaker on the Left for 15 minues to "balance" your broadcast. Now if your blog is anti-administration, you have to place links to pro-administration blogs on YOUR website!

December 21, 2010
The FCC is not deterred by common sense, the judicial system, or by Congress because they want MORE power. Whether you like it or not and whether it's legal or not, the FCC is moving forward to implement it's Internet control on 12/21/2010. At that point they are injecting themselves into the Internet. Before you place Internet content, you first need to come to the FCC and get their approval of YOUR content.

Do you get it now? CENSORSHIP!!!

A Ray of Hope
We need to tell the FCC loud and clear to "Keep YOUR Grubby Hands Off the Internet and Free Speech." There IS a 1st Amendment and you can's steal it!

Fortunately, Representative Marsh Blackburn (R, TN) is preparing HR Bill 3924 which prohibits the FCC from taking these ILLEGAL actions. Support this legislation and Ms. Blackburn.

Had Any Internet Problems Lately?

Coincidence or Reality?
Have you experienced ANY Internet connectivity problems lately? We have! This last one was no connectivity for over 60 hours - continuous! Is this just a coincidence after the WikiLeaks attacks against the USA? Who really knows. One thing for sure, we do know that WikiLeaks was shut down by denial of service attacks. It's also a fact that the Department of Homeland Security is "policing" the Internet and arbitrarily closing-down websites at their own digression. No court orders, no charges, just stopping them dead in their tracks because a bureaucrat "THINKS" there may be a violation.

FCC Regulation Effective Date
In the article that follows this one there is a description of how the FCC is preparing to TAKE CONTROL OVER THE INTERNET on December 21, 2010. Please read it carefully and draw your own conclusions.

Apologies for No Blog
We apologize to our readers for no blog yesterday. Be sure and read today's because it explains the reasons for paranoia about Internet attacks by OUR government!

Guest Article: Warning: DEATH to Free Speech

America - This is NO Joke!

EDITORIAL: Wave goodbye to Internet freedom FCC crosses the Rubicon into online regulation

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES

"The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is poised to add the Internet to its portfolio of regulated industries. The agency's chairman, Julius Genachowski, announced Wednesday that he circulated draft rules he says will "preserve the freedom and openness of the Internet." No statement could better reflect the gulf between the rhetoric and the reality of Obama administration policies.

With a straight face, Mr. Genachowski suggested that government red tape will increase the "freedom" of online services that have flourished because bureaucratic busybodies have been blocked from tinkering with the Web. Ordinarily, it would be appropriate at this point to supply an example from the proposed regulations illustrating the problem. Mr. Genachowski's draft document has over 550 footnotes and is stamped "non-public, for internal use only" to ensure nobody outside the agency sees it until the rules are approved in a scheduled Dec. 21 vote. So much for "openness."

The issue of "net neutrality" is nothing new, but the increasing popularity of online movie streaming services like Netflix have highlighted an area of potential concern. When someone watches a film over the Internet, especially in high definition, the maximum available capacity of the user's connection is used. Think, for example, of the problems that would arise at the water works if everyone decided to turn on their faucets and take a shower simultaneously. Internet providers are beginning to see the same strain on their networks.

In some cases, heavy use of this sort slows the Web experience for everyone sharing the same lines. That has prompted some cable Internet providers to consider either charging the heavy users more or limiting access to the "problematic" services. Of course, if cinema buffs find themselves cut off from their favorite service, they're going to be mad. If companies don't act, they're just as likely to find irate customers who don't want their experience bogged down by others.

It's not clear why the FCC thinks it needs to intervene in a situation with obvious market solutions. Companies that impose draconian tolls or block services will lose customers. Existing laws already offer a number of protections against anti-competitive behavior, but it's not clear under what law Mr. Genachowski thinks he can stick his nose into the businesses that comprise the Internet. The FCC regulates broadcast television and radio because the government granted each station exclusive access to a slice of the airwaves. Likewise when Ma Bell accepted a monopoly deal from Uncle Sam, it came with regulatory strings attached.

No such rationale applies online, especially because bipartisan majorities in Congress have insisted on maintaining a hands-off policy. A federal appeals court confirmed this in April by striking down the FCC's last attempt in this arena. "That was sort of like the quarterback being sacked for a 20-yard loss," FCC Commissioner Robert M. McDowell told The Washington Times. "And now the team is about to run the exact same play. ... In order for the FCC to do this, it needs for Congress to give it explicit statutory authority to do so."

Freedom and openness should continue to be the governing principles of the Internet. That's why Mr. Genachowski's proposal should be rejected and Congress should make it even more clear that the FCC should stop trying to expand its regulatory empire."

Why Congress Has Low Ratings

Seeing Is Believing
While acting as the House of Representatives Speaker of the House, Representative Laura Richardson (D, CA) shows rudeness and tries to censor a fellow member of Congress. You don't have to know the Rules of Order to understand that this was JUST WRONG! Watch the video and notice that Richardson has four people on the sidelines coaching her what to say to silence Republican Steven Buyer (R, Indiana) from making a point of order regarding the incorrect "procedure" of the legislation at hand.

Lame Stream Media's Reporting
CBS said that Representative Buyer was throwing a "Tantrum." However, the CBS video clip deletes the beginning of the incident. They leave-out the first few minutes where the Speaker blatantly denies free speech in the House of Representatives for no apparent reason - other than just because she does not want to hear his arguments.

What CBS forgot to mention is that the person who actually wrote and sponsored the bill was not present. Representative Steven Buyer is the person who is in charge of the committee that reviews legislation. However, the DEMs "Skipped" the review process in order to jam this bill through Congress by side-stepping the official process. In other words, "THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS." (Saul Alinsky's method of destroying America).

More proof that Progressives don't want the hear the TRUTH. They would rather just SILENCE IT instead. They have no arguments for the facts! That's why Progressive are so dangerous.

This is YOUR Congress At Work
No wonder we have lost faith and trust with the Lame Stream media. They blatantly misrepresent the truth and slant the news to fit THEIR POLITICAL AGENDA. They reported this incorrectly as anyone who witnesses it can attest.

Don't Trust Lame Ducks
This is a clear example of the Lame Duck Congress in action. Are there any good reasons why the Progressives shouldn't be labeled as a danger to American values and freedom?

Action To Take
America, pay attention to the details. Once you begin to understand who you have elected into office, you will become active to get them out-of-office ASAP!

Govt. Thefts Lead to Counter Measures

Government Theft...
With the recent government seizures (stealing) by the Department of Homeland Security of Internet domains to close down websites, there is a new movement taking place. The new DNS (Domain Name Server) system exchanges DNS information by peer-to-peer transfers and will have a new p2p file extension.

This is in direct response to the ILLEGAL takeovers by the Federal government in the past couple of weeks. Our government has been ILLEGALLY "policing" the Internet and has been seizing Internet domains from anyone who they "THINK" may be guilty of copyright infringements. So much for obeying the US Constitution!

These recent anti-music pirating efforts have focused on seizing (STEALING) domains from the alleged infringing websites. Homeland Security has found out how easy it is to STEAL a domain name. It's easy because several of the top domains are managed by US-based company's like Verisign who works closely with the US Department of Commerce. This situation is a REAL threat to the 1st Amendment and the right to free speech. Does anybody care?

Always Watch Both Hands of the Government
Recall that while this theft is going on - the other arm of OUR government is also trying to take control over the Internet simultaneously. The FCC is trying to pass "regulations" that would in affect allow them to become Internet censors. These actions are not coincidental. Our government is actively trying to take over control of the Internet any way they can.

Why isn't anyone complaining? Some are!

New Approach
The new approach to Internet addressing of domain names incorporates a service that attaches to a host computer's system and manipulates all the requests for a domain name. This eliminates government take-overs because they cannot just pull the plug on a central server like they have recently. This method decentralizes the old way and eliminates domain name censoring which is also being used in China and Iran.

Action To Take
Watch closely how this project turns out. If adopted, it could significantly change the Internet and dis-allow government censorship.

In the mean time tell the government to keep their grubby hands-off the Internet! We don't want them censoring it!

Why The DREAM Act Is Bad

Thank Harry Reid
Newly re-elected Senator Harry Reid (D, NV) is trying once again to try and get ILLEGAL ALIENS to have full AMNESTY! This time he calls his bill the "DREAM ACT." This bill gives amnesty to ILLEGALS aged 16 to 35 if they meet one of two conditions.

1. They are eligible to become a US citizen (FULL AMNESTY) if they complete two years of college (that WE will probably pay for in total). The bill doesn't say how a 16 year old can complete two years of college because they haven't completed high school yet - but that's beside the point.

or

2. They can become US citizens if they complete two years in the United States military service. They don't indicate how an ILLEGAL can join the military without using stolen Social Security numbers or falsified identification. In other words, they have to break the law AGAIN in order to pass this qualification!

Why Bother With These "Restrictions" At All?
Aren't these two conditions just a free ticket that invites more law breaking? Harry Reid is an IDIOT! He thinks we are too stupid to see that this bill is pure and simple a gift of AMNESTY.

Impact on Us
Reid's legislation takes NOTHING into account as to what impact this would have on the American economy and small businesses. It's no wonder because it would be devastating. The DREAM Act adds another 2 MILLION to our population.

What about the 17% of unemployed American workers who cannot find jobs? Forget them. That's only 22 Million Americans who can't find work. So why would adding more out-of-work ILLEGALS be hurting these numbers? They won't explain that!

The Children Are the Victims
Frankly we're getting tired of this BS argument. Supporters of the DREAM Act say that we are "punishing the children" of ILLEGALS and it's not their fault that their parents put them there. They forget to mention that after the "children" become US citizens they can apply for their parents to join them as well! This law IGNORES the fact that it will encourage MORE ILLEGALS to enter the country for the same amnesty!

Still NOT Convinced?
You need to watch a five minute video that explains why the DREAM Act will have no effect whatsoever on the problem of world hunger or overpopulation. Here's the link.

Action To Take
Tell your representatives to vote "NO" on the DREAM Act. It's no solution to the problem - it only makes it worse!
