Save YOUR Country

The 912 Project is swelling in the United States as a reaction to the economic crisis. It has been a year in existence. It was started by Glenn Beck and it emphasizes the importance of 9 principles and 12 values that have been lost in the USA today.

Beck claims that 12 core values are essential to a strong country and that these values have been lost in a cloud of greed and corruption. According to Beck Americans have lost their way and that the 12 values must be restored before things can get better.

Core Values
The 12 values Americans must embrace are:
  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard Work
  • Courage
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Gratitude
The Nine Principles
He claims that you only have to support 7 the nine principles. They are as follows:
  • America is good.
  • I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
  • I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
  • The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
  • If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
  • I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
  • I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
  • It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
  • The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Action To Take
America's liberties and freedoms are under serious attack. YOU CAN DO SOMETHING TO HELP STOP IT! If you love YOUR country, listen. Find the 912 Project in YOUR geographical area. Join it. Become an active participant in it. Stop corrupt politicians and BIG government from destroying OUR freedoms.

ALSO: Buy a copy of the 5000 Year Leap by W. Cleon Skousen and READ IT. It's a quick read. Get informed about the Constitution and our Founders. Pass it on to a friend after you read it.

More Congressional Dirty Tricks

Did you know that the DEMs are quietly adding , a law to allow the government to completely take over all student loans? That's right, nationalizing ALL student loans.

Are you aware that they are adding this law to OBAMACARE as part of the government takeover healthcare bill? MORE DIRTY TRICKS! They are doing it so they won't need the 60 votes in the Senate in order to pass the law. If they use the nuclear option, they only need 51 votes to pass the bill.

How sneaky can you get? What exactly is this Congress trying to do? It looks like they want government control over your healthcare AND student loans. Why is this? POWER! The Progressives (DEMs and GOPs) want more control over your lives. What better way than to sneak it through without telling us about it.

If this act hasn't convinced you that Congress is corrupt and needs to be replaced, then there is no hope for you. It's time to clean house in November. Not just the DEMs, but the Republicans too. We need a fresh start and need to flush-out the sleaze bags who are destroying America. We need to get rid of "career politicians." All of them!

Action To Take
Tell your Congressional Representatives that you are "ON" to their behavior and let them know that you do NOT support a government takeover of student loans. Vote them out of office in November.

National ID Cards - Bad Idea

National ID cards are being seriously considered by Congress. Their "excuse" for wanting them is to control illegal immigration. Proponents include Chas. Schumer (D, NY) and Lindsey Graham (R, SC - "Rhino" - Republican in name only). Both are strong Progressives.

They believe that it's OK to force all people to register with the government. This would end racial profiling and "streamline" governmental administration. It would also provide useful links between businesses and the government. Probably between Homeland Security, the FBI, and the NSA as well. If you recall in history, this tactic was used in Nazi Germany for similar purposes. As we know, that didn't work out so well when the power was used in a negative way against the very people it was supposed to protect.

That's the big problem with National ID cards. They increase police powers - BIG TIME. National ID cards are still used in over 100 countries around the world. It is proven that they do NOT cut crime rates, but they do improve government efficiency.

Information Contained
The proposed National ID Cards would have genetic material as well as some yet undefined electronic information about you - likely your police record, number of arrests, number of convictions, and really whatever information the government would like to put there about you. They decide. There's the danger. You won't be able to read these cards, so you won't know what they actually contain. What are the limits? Should they include medical information, library books rented, blogs you write, number and types of guns you own, political affiliation, or credit card purchases too?

What Will They Be Used For?
Proponents say that employers would use them to prohibit illegals from gaining employment. If the card is going to be used to track criminals, you could be arrested for not having one! Police could perform on-the-spot ID checks - similar to what they do in stopping cars to check and see if the drivers have a valid driver's license. Sound scary? Where's you ID? You're under arrest.

If you recall the Social Security Act of 1933 mandated that the government make everyone who worked, get a Social Security Card. It was NEVER to be used for identification purposes. In fact, it says right on it; "Not to be used for identification." Oh really? Tell that to your local bank, employer, doctor, hospital, credit card company, and telephone provider. These examples show that the government REALLY didn't mean what they said. They can and will (or try and do) anything they want, if they can get away with it.

What about the possibility of falsifying these cards? Ever see a good fake ID? Oh, right, this would never happen.

Forget the 4th Amendment. Forget the right to privacy. Forget illegal search and seizure. Forget getting a warrant for an arrest. In fact, just trash the Constitution.

Action To Take
Tell Congress you are opposed to a National ID Card - PERIOD.

Weekly Polls

The Rasmussen Reports is an independent electronic publishing firm that specializes in public opinion polling. Here are some current results on some main issues:

Presidential Tracking Poll
This tracks how the President is doing by those surveyed.

  • Strongly Approve... 22%
  • Strongly Disapprove... 43%
  • Approval Index = ... -21

Presidential Approval Index
This chart is from

Job Approval Rating Since Election

Are you in favor of ObamaCare?
  • Yes we favor ObamaCare ...42%
  • No we do not favor ObamaCare...53%
So why does the Obama STILL make healthcare his highest priority over national security and the threat of Iran developing nuclear weapons?

Can You Trust Unions?

A labor union is an organization of workers joined together to achieve goals in the workplace. Usually the goals include negotiating wages, benefits, and working conditions. A union negotiates contracts and conditions with employers for employees. Most unions claim a right to admit or deny membership to potential union members based on factors such as worker status and their type of trade or skill. Now Obama wants to drop the secret ballot when unions try to get members to join. This gives even more power to the unions.

In the beginning of the labor movement, workers needed these protections. However, as unions grew in numbers and in power, they also grew in corruption. This goes hand-in-hand with power. Power corrupts. As a result, pension funds become targets for theft.

Unions exploded in the United States during the 19th century with the founding of the National Labor Union in 1866. Although this union failed, its founding was an important precedent. Several unions followed and one of the most successful was the American Federation of Labor (AFL) in 1886, and today it's SEIU (Service Employees International Union with several million members).

Today, unions serve the same purposes for which they were originally founded. They have however, out-lived their usefulness. As they became more and more powerful, their demands became more and more demanding, as well. This is one of the main reasons why the states and the federal government are in such awful financial predicaments.

For example, the UAW (United Auto Workers) have priced themselves out of the market. Auto manufacturers have to price their cars extremely high just to cover wages and fringe benefits - namely healthcare and retirements for the workers. Their wages have out-paced world competition. Foreign cars are cheaper because they are not produced by unions.

Unions also have a negative impact in other areas. For example the National Education Association (NEA) is responsible for the dumming-down of America by imposing political correctness into textbooks and by re-writing America history with a Progressive twist. They have succeeded so well that even the people in Minnisota don't blink when they have a US Senate race won (Al Frankin) by more votes than they have registered voters. No warning lights went off when that Senate race recounts were being funded by George Soros either.

So why is it when Obama appoints Andy Stern (President of SEIU-the largest union) to head his government panel on deficit reductions, there are no warning flags? Is this guy even qualified? What are the motives for this nomination? Are they in the interests of the American public? Hardly!

Progressives at Work

Progressive Obama is reviving his prospects for a major overhaul of the immigration laws. He wants to give amnesty for ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS. He wants to give them government entitlements and put them in the voting roll to support big government. Then he would keep his promise by letting them have free healthcare. Obama has been working with his staff to try and get this idea to lawmakers before they get distracted with midterm elections.

Obama and members of his Domestic Policy Council outlined ways to resurrect the amnesty effort in a White House meeting with two senators — Charles E. Schumer (D, NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Keep in mind that Grahm is a Republican in name only. He's a Progressive who pretendes to be a conservative. Look at his voting record - That's the proof. Obama is asking for these two to sponsor a bill that would include a path toward citizenship for the 10 - 20 million estimated people living in the US illegally.

So why is a so-called Republican Lindsey Grahm supporting this legislation? Because he's just like Progressive Senator John McCain who also wants to give amnesty to ILLEGAL ALIENS. This idea is NOT new. McCain tried to get it passed a while back. He wanted to get ILLEGALS to register. So does Obama. But why should an ILLEGAL do this? They have no incentive to do it. They can just remain under the radar and keep sucking the US system dry without declaring their presence to the government. There is no penalty for not complying. DUH?

So ask yourself, this question: With South Carolina’s unemployment rate over 12%, why is Lindsey Graham trying to legalize another 10 million people and bring them into the mainstream work force? What's in it for him? It certainly doesn't help his constituents!

Why does Obama even want to go near this political issue when he hasn't passed any legislation? We don't know the answers. But you can be sure that their actions are not in the best interests of Americans.

Census Department Invasion?

The Census Bureau now seems to think that we as US citizens are required to provide them with personal sensitive information. The Constitution grants the government the authority to count the number of people living in a specific area. They then use this information to determine the number if representatives a state may have based on the population numbers.

However, it seems like this administration has taken a giant step into YOUR privacy. This year's census will now ask for the following types of information:

  • What disabilities do you have? - ObamaCare needs to know for better estimates in their takeover of YOUR healthcare.

  • How much income you receive - They already have this information at the IRS.

  • Where do you get your income from? - Do you earn it or get it from the government? They'll tax you later if you earn it.

  • What are your housing costs? - They need to know so they can figure the value of YOUR property - before they take it.

  • How many cars do you own? - They will tax you for having more than one in the future.

  • How much do you pay for insurance? They need this to help expand government healthcare.

  • Do you receive food stamps? They should already know this if you are.

  • How much do you pay for utilities? They need a baseline so they can tax you for your overusage later after Cap & Trade becomes law.
Would you tell these things to a stranger? Aren't they a stranger? A clipboard and ID from the Census bureau still makes them a stranger. Is this information REALLY for the census? Who is going to have access to it?

What proof of authorization do they have demanding this detailed information? We need to let the government know that we know they are NOT authorized to demand our cooperation in their devised scheme to gather this information. If they claim that they do have authorization to gather this information, show them a copy of the Constitution. Ask them to show you the part that authorizes them to demand getting private information from you. It's not there.

Questions to Ask the Census Bureau

Here are some questions to Ask the Census Bureau:

1. Where does the Census Bureau derive the authority to demand private information?

2. Is there any limit to my invasion of privacy? Is there any limit to the amount and type of information that the Census Bureau may collect?

Note: The Fourth Ammendment prohibits government search and seizure of private information without a court warrent, based on probable cause. Current census policies violate this ammendment.

3. Do current levels of data violate the Fourth Ammendment?

4. By what Constitutional authority does the Census Bureau threaten penalties for failure to provide personal information? How may we be penalized for maintaining our privacy?

5. The Census Bureau claims it maintains provides privacy of personal information. Are there any circumstances that law enforcement or spy agencies can access census information? Can security agencies access my private information?

6. Since presumably census data can be subpoenaed by law enforcement agencies, may individuals refuse to answer questions - according to the fifth Ammendment? May I take the fifth?

7. Why has the Census Bureau decided to take GPS data coordinates? How will my GPS coordinates be used?

8. Virtually every government database has either been lost, hacked, or compromised. With the census Bureau's claim of data security not be an outright lie? How can the Census Bureau claim data security with any confidence?

9. How would the Census Bureau locate, protect, and compensate, those individuals whose data becomes compromised? Is the Census Bureau responsible for mishandled data?

Good luck. Provide your name and number of adults and children living in your home. Nothing more.
