Guest Article - Banning Guns


YES MR. OBAMA, THERE WILL BE RESISTANCE
by AWR HAWKINS

"While appearing on Meet the Press on Dec. 30th, President Obama pledged to make gun control one of the central aims of 2013. He said he knows it won't be easy -- that "there will be resistance" -- but that it has to be done to be sure another Sandy Hook doesn't take place.
 
Clearly, the "there will be resistance" comment was intended to put gun owners on their heels, and put them in an apologetic frame. But it was misplaced.

For while there certainly will be resistance, it will not be from the gun owners he's calling out but from the Bill of Rights attached to the U.S. Constitution.

It is crucial to understand that the Bill of Rights sets apart numerous freedoms -- the right to keep and bear arms among them -- in which the federal government is prohibited from interfering. The Bill of Rights is literally there to handcuff the government and keep the people free (not to handcuff the people and free the government to do whatever it wants).

From our nation's founding till now, the Bill of Rights has been a  bulwark for freedom, allowing the rights enumerated therein to be enjoyed by generation upon generation.
Now Obama pretends the power to step and change our access to the freedoms protected by the 2nd Amendment, and he tries to justify this by saying the goal is to prevent another situation "where someone with severe psychological problems is able to get the kinds of high capacity weapons [the] individual in Newtown obtained."

This is a classic straw man argument, wherein Obama is trying to shame gun-owners into silence by making it look like opposition to gun control is the same thing as wantonly allowing people with severe psychological problems to obtain weapons. He conveniently leaves out the core issue -- Adam Lanza didn't obtain his weapons legally, thus no amount of psychologically-based gun control measures would have stopped him.

He was a criminal determined to commit a heinous criminal act.

Obama is using this shame tactic in hopes of making us forget that our inalienable, God-given rights are just that -- inalienable and God-given. This is the message of the Bill of Rights: it's the message our Founding Fathers communicated to their posterity via the enumeration of certain rights via explicit protections from government infringement.

Criminals can always be counted on to act like criminals. However, such actions should never be used to justify treating law abiding citizens like criminals. Yet that is exactly what Obama, and Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Joe Manching (D-WV) are trying to do.

Here's the problem they face -- there will be resistance, just as there has been resistance for over 220 years. That resistance is called the Constitution of the United States."

Out Of Stock



Just In Case...
Just in case you were thinking of purchasing a new firearm, we have some bad news for you. Many (if not all) firearm dealers have noticed a SURGE in demand for guns of all types. The most popular (AR-15s and AK-47s) are becoming the most difficult to purchase. Demand has outstripped supply resulting in record high prices for the lucky ones who actually found a dealer with any merchandise.

Ammunition Sales Too
Just in case you wanted a case… A quick search of several popular web sites also shows an alarming trend. Likewise, a visit to local gun stores, shows a run on product. People are buying ammunition for all types of firearms. The too has caused a shortage in various calibers - especially 223, 5.56, and 7.62x39. If none of this makes any sense to you  - then never mind. Those happen to be popular rifle calibers - world-wide.

If you can find dealers with these calibers, chances are that they won't have them in stock very long. Many are already "Out-of-Stock" and are back ordered "depending on availability." The old rule of economics is working just as expected. The law of supply and demand.

Magazines
(Not the ones you read, but the ones you load). DITTO! If you're in the market to purchase large capacity magazines (anything more than 5 rounds) before Senator Dianne Feinstein (D, CA) bans them all, you will also find them hard to get also. Increased demand has driven up the prices where they are available.

Summary
The latest threats to lawful citizens by overzealous politicians is causing a major run on all related firearms products. These citizens are fearful of the government's NEGATIVE attitude towards the 2nd Amendment. Now there is talk of manditory federal gun registration. This is creating the panic.

Recall History
The National Socialist Party (NAZIS) required mandatory gun registration in 1938 by all citizens. This was innocent enough. Most complied. However, it was the first step of more government action. In 1939, the NAZIS confiscated ALL registered firearms. History is repeating itself here in America. If law abiding citizens don't see a parallel to this, then just keep your heads in the sand.

Just Wait…


Bad Now
If you think that things are getting worse now, just wait until Obama nominates another Supreme Court Justice or two. Obama has already nominated and successfully appointed two LEFT-Leaning justices: Sonya Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. (Both Liberal judges)

Just this past week, it was Justice Sonya Sotomayor who denied Hobby Lobby an injunction to delay implementation of ObamaCare mandates. This forces employers to provide birth control to their employees in spite of employers' religious convictions. All Sotomayor had to do was to allow implementation to go on hold until the bigger issue comes before the Supreme Court in the near future.

The Sham
Ironic that many of the unions like SEIU have received "exemptions" from ObamaCare by the President's Cathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). So if you're a friend of the administration, you get a favor, but if you're not a friend, you don't. They call that nepotism or crony capitalism.

What's Likely
We have at least two more Justices who are getting old and will probably retire under Obama's watch. That means trouble for those of us who believe in the Constitution. Obama will nominate and confirm two more Justices giving the Supreme Court a hard leaning to the LEFT majority of Justices. The REAL bad news is that they are appointed for LIFE!

Think about them apples! They will influence the constitutionality of laws for many years to come!

YIKES!!!!

Are SHE THAT Stupid?



Politicians
Today's Progressives are the boldest we have seen for a long while in the history of the USA. Today's bunch hold no bones when striving to get their own way - no matter who or what they trample on to get there. This includes the US Constitution - especially the 2nd Amendment. "Shall not be infringed…"

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D, CA) is the perfect example. As a government representative, she's the one who wrote and passed the original "assault weapons" legislation in the 1990's. Incidentally, this gun banner is the BIGGEST HYPOCRITE because she not only has a concealed weapons permit, but she also carries a handgun for her own protection. No wonder! She's using the ILLOGICAL "logic" of "don't do as I do, do as I say." How can anyone respect this type of person? Does she REALLY believe that she is BETTER than you are?

She expects the sub-class human beings (that's you and I) to follow her commands and rid us all of our means of protection, while she maintains that she is above her own laws and should be able to keep and use her firearms for her own protection. Meanwhile, the rest of us "peasants" have no protection against criminals (OR BIG GOVERNMENT) and that's just TOO FRIGIN' BAD FOR US! Is Feinstein really that stupid?

No Wonder…
Anyone who actually believes that they are better than you are and that think they know what's good for you (because you don't) is dangerously unbalanced. What's worse, is that in her case, she's a powerful US Senator besides being a true MARXIST. Totalitarian governments behave like she talks and legislates. Think about the fools and wack-jobs that elected her into office.

Outcome
If Senator Feinstein continues with her attacks against legal gun owners trying to openly confiscate their guns, exactly what does she anticipate from them? Does Feinstein expect lawful owners to comply with her ideas that no one should have a gun except the "privileged class?" This scenario will hardly go as she expects. It could trigger another REVOLUTION! Is this her true purpose? Is she deliberately antagonizing lawful citizens to break the law?

Our country is a Republic and was founded because of an overbearing British government. Our Founding Fathers knew that if ALL citizens were armed, the government would be reluctant to become overbearing again out of fear of the armed citizens. As long as the government respected and feared its own citizens, freedom would not be trampled. That was then...

Today we have an overbearing government who is literally "infringing" on OUR RIGHTS to OWN firearms and to be able to protect ourselves. When BIG Governments dictate gun registration, they follow that with gun confiscation. History spells-out that message clearly. Dianne Feinstein wants JUST THAT. She knows what she's proposing. She is the ENEMY of the US Constitution and the 2nd Amendment and she doesn't care.

Action To Take
If you support the 2nd Amendment, notify your DC representatives and let them all know your feelings about more gun legislation. AND, join the NRA to help them fight to defend the law.

Stop Politicians in Their Tracks


Movement Afoot
Since the Sandy Hook tragedy there is a movement in Washington to try and "FIX" the problem that caused it. Unfortunately, most politicians are NOT psychiatrists and are CLUELESS when it comes to actually resolving MOST problems - especially when there is mental illness involved. So instead of directing their attention to the REAL underlying cause of the massacre, they direct their attention to the weapons used.

Using this logic, we should ban cars because they kill too many people. Why not ban all machines because they can hurt people too? We should also ban politicians because they NEVER fix problems, they just create new unintended consequences and make things worse than before. We should also ban Progressives because they want to transform America into their vision of "Utopia." After all, they are enemies of the state.

Time For Action
We are NOT promoting any violent overthrow of the government. However, our Constitution does allow for it. The Founders used violence to overthrow a tyrannical government to create America. We need to take positive action that will use the same strategies that Progressives use against us. Start simple and grow it. One action at a time.

Let's begin with a SPAMMING of Congress. We all have the electronic devices available to do this. Start SPAMMING THEM EVERY DAY. They are no longer representing their constituents - or at least not most of them. Anyone in Congress who has served more than two consecutive terms, needs to face TERM LIMITS. They also need to start hearing more from you and your family and your friends. We need to "Bombard" Congress with a POSITIVE message to keep their hands off of the 2nd Amendment. Let them know there are enough gun laws on the books and that new laws won't stop the type of violence we saw in Connecticut.

Get Serious
In order for ANY movement to work, there needs to be a large participation. A handful of individuals cannot make or break any group. This has to be large. Tell family, friends, and like-minded people to start contacting their US Representatives and US Senators and let them know how they feel.

Learn From Progressives


Piece At A Time
Progressives are patient people. They have been trying to change America for over 100 years since the height of the "Progressive Era." They are content in chipping away American traditions, values, and the American way of life, one thing at a time.

In doing so, American Conservatives don't recognize the Progressive's systematic destruction in progress because it is so subtle. It only destroys a tiny chip of our country and we don't see it happening right in front of our eyes (…until it's too late, or when they are so ridiculous they draw our attention). The best example of too obvious is the Progressive WAR agains Christmas. Every year they get bolder and bolder claiming to be "offended," and we collapse to them until it's now a fight just to be able to actually celebrate Christmas.

Time To Really Push Back
Isn't it time to do something positive to STOP Progressives in their track? Seriously! One of the things that helps distort American's point of view is the Corrupt Media. Each day we see bolder and bolder attempts to influence our thinking to promote a Progressive agenda. Today's journalists are no longer that. Instead they are PROPAGANDISTS pushing the agenda of their Progressive leaders.

MSNBC is the perfect example of this corruption. Every day they spew PROPAGANDA that they call "news." This poison is so bad that many have been brainwashed into believing that they are getting facts and not warped view points called "news." Falsifying by editing sound bytes is one example.

Action To Take
Tell friends and family that they need to take-back the media control and demand honest, factual reporting. The worse offender is MSNBC. So start boycotting ALL of their sponsors. Refuse to buy any products advertised on MSNBC. Tell MSNBC sponsors that you are unhappy with their endorsement of MSNBC and that you are boycotting anyone who supports their political PROPAGANDA.

The following will help you get started.

If enough people do it, it will deliver a clear message to Progressives that we are taking-back the media from their control.

One More Thing...


Whoops - An Omission
In yesterday's blog about how to fix the fiscal cliff crisis, we omitted one important detail. The President of the United States should also bear some responsibility for our current debt crisis. After all, he's the one who sinks taxpayer money into failed business ventures under the guise of Green Energy. He also has a serious spending problem himself and refuses to stop entitlement spending. He refuses to make any entitlement cuts whatsoever. He needs to be an active participant in the current negotiations instead of vacationing in Hawaii.

Congress should also include in the law mentioned yesterday, that the President's salary will be reduced by $40,000 per day for each day the deficit crisis continues. That way he too will have a piece of the action and NOT be able to BLAME someone else like he always does. The President needs to face the reality that the government has a spending problem and raising taxes is NOT the correct solution.

It's a simple but effective way of getting all parties to actually sit-down and discuss AND remedy the financial crisis here in America. After all, they are the ones who created it in the first place.

Fiscal Cliff Solution!


It's Really Quite Simple
Pass a law that makes ALL members of Congress (House and the Senate) take a $10,000 per day pay cut for each day there's no solution to cutting spending, balancing the budget, and re-structuring the tax system to a flat tax.

You would see Congress resolve the problems quicker than you could say "Thank Obama."

Assault Weapon Ban Irrelevant


FBI Statistics
Although anti-gun advocates are pushing to ban what they call "assault weapons" (AKA semi-automatic rifles), there is an interesting fact they omit from their discussions. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) suggests that people are more likely to be murdered by hands, fists, feet, other than by a rifle. Here is the FBI chart that illustrates this point:




What It Reveals
This chart shows that the number one weapon is a handgun - not a rifle. The vast majority of gun-related murders are committed by handguns. So why are the Anti-2nd Amendment proponents pushing so hard against rifles? The chart also shows that knives are much more dangerous than rifles. Why not ban knives instead?

Progressives can't argue because the facts make them look like the fools that they are. They also miss the point that no matter what type of weapon used, a deranged person will still be able to commit heinous crime.

Focus Is Wrong
Should the Gun Banners be taking a look at the "CAUSE" instead of the "Means?" Years ago it was fairly easy to get people committed into psychiatric wards. The pendulum has changed and now it's next to impossible without crossing many many roadblocks. This needs attention. If unbalanced people continue walking the streets, no BAN will prohibit them from committing these types of crimes.

Gun Banners also forget the serious influence the MSM has, as well as, Hollywood, and the entire video gaming industry. All of these are factors in promoting violence in our society. Should they actively do something to these industries?

Action To Take
After updating your membership to the NRA, you need to contact your representatives in Washington and let them know you oppose of ANY NEW gun laws. We would ENFORECE the ones we already have.

Get Off The Fence


New Members
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has seen a spike in membership since the Sandy Hook massacre last week. It is reported that they are averaging about 8,000 new members each day. New members realize that the Constitutional right is being threatened by the Obama administration.

Obama' s Solution 
Yesterday, President Obama designated the famous gun banner (VP Joe Biden), to lead a Federal task force to propose NEW & TOUGHER GUN LAWS. Recall that Biden was the author of the 1994 GUN Control Act which lasted 10 years and did little to stop criminals from obtaining weapons. It did however, create more hurdles for law abiding citizens to obtain firearms.

Gun Sales
The increase in NRA memberships also coincides with a tremendous increase in gun sales - specifically AR-15s. THANK OBAMA for that one! Walmart sold-out of AR-15s and the demand continues at all gun dealers. Gun owners are expecting the worst from the government and probably have good reason for that feeling. It's becoming quite clear that Progressive want to BAN ALL GUNS!

Missing The Point
Apparently, Progressives ignore some of the true CAUSES for these massacres and use the tragedy to push their agenda of banning all guns. Why even FOX TV's Bill O'Reilly wants to see lawful citizens be forced to REGISTER all "Assault Weapons" - whatever they are. O'Reilly doesn't even know the difference between an "AR-15" or an "AK-47", but admits that he has and will use a hand gun to protect himself.

O'Reilly sees nothing wrong with gun registration. What O'Reilly doesn't know is that registration is the first step to confiscation. A look at world history proves that point. He's just another "PINHEAD" making stupid suggestions.

Action To Take
If you support the Second Amendment, you need to support the NRA with your membership. If you own a firearm of any type, you also need to become an NRA member. Here's How:

Does Anybody Care Anymore?


Benghazi
We had 4 Americans killed. That was in September. The State Department ordered a thorough investigation. Hillary Clinton (Secretary of State) created the "Accountability Review Board" to investigate who was responsible for the failings in the department. OK, sounds like a good idea, but isn't Hillary one of the persons who should be investigated as well?

Findings
After weeks of "investigation," the Accountability Review Board declared that no one was responsible for the government bungling that resulted in the four deaths. Instead, they pointed their fingers to the Libyan government who were "On Strike" at the time of the attacks. They were supposedly the ones who were in charge of providing our ambassador bodyguards. Look how that turned out!

Do You Believe These Lies?
This administration is getting so good at distorting the truth, that they even believe their own lies! Can you actually believe ANY findings that were sponsored by the key person in charge of the government office being investigated? That's at the very minimum, a conflict of interest.

Now Hillary won't even testify to Congress because of illness. How convenient! They (the Obama administration) believe that Americans have a short memory and shorter attention span. In fact, that's what they're counting on to get their "ass" out of yet ANOTHER cover up.

Action To Take
Demand answers to YOUR questions - like "Who ordered our troops to stand-down"? Make that person helped accountable for these four deaths. If it was Hillary, so be it!

Stay Focused America


Wrong Direction
All the Internet chatter is focusing on the Connecticut massacres. The media is bombarding viewers and listeners with 24/7 coverage of the latest mass murders. We all grieve this evil, but we are also being saturated with it as well.

Once again, the Corrupt media is leading the anti-gun cause instead of keeping the focus on the lying and cover ups coming out of the White House. It's truly ironic that we know more about the Murders than we do about the Assassinations in Benghazi or the botched sale of guns to Mexican drug cartels.

The media would rather represent their agenda, instead of accurately reporting facts about these two BIG Government scandals. Instead of that, they ignore them both and just brush-off Hillary's excuse for not testifying in front of Congress.

Stay Focused
Keep your eye on the political football. There has been a shift of focus and it's diverting your attention away from the Obama Blunders.  Why isn't the administration cooperating with Congress? They have stonewalled the Fast and Furious investigation for 2 over years? Eric Holder lied and was held for Contempt of Congress. Did someone in the administration break the law in the administration besides Holder? Who was it?  Don't let Obama white-wash over the fact that HE botched the gun deal and he's protecting his AG from any wrong doing. Why the cover-up? He claims it's for national security. That's BS and we know it.

Why hasn't Congress been able to find-out what really happened in Benghazi and who is accountable? We are four months out from the assignations and we still don't have any accountability from either the White House or the State Department.

Why Not? We need answers!

Guest Article - It's NOT Guns!


The Newtown Killings
by Roger Ebert

"What's different about about the Newtown Massacre? Not very much. On top of the Columbine tragedy, the Batman "homage" and so on and so on, it still doesn't even have its own Twitter hashtag. I haven't had the heart to look for any theme music that has been drummed up for cable news.

Of course there are already countless reports among innumerable op-ed contributors. I can't even use that angle. Nor can I exploit my use of the word "angle." Nor am I much interested in "thinkers" from the world's pundits and pulpits about what this means, if anything, about American society as a whole. I have no doubt, of course, there have been media roundups on how Fox News has covered the story.

It goes without saying that the suspected shootings "rehearsed a familiar scenario." I haven't yet read that that any big weekend TV shows have yet been dropped by networks. The Sunday morning TV news talk shows haven't yet assembled their expert "panels" about about the deaths of 26 innocent murdered people, 20 of them in grade school. Were "grief counselors" called in to speak with the families?

Is this a heartless cynical way to approach Newtown? No doubt it is. In my opinion the most useful way to "analyze" is to repeat. I would like to quote the following words from an article by me that was excerpted under another byline, as follows:

"From his review of Gus Van Sant's 'Elephant', a fictionalized account of a Columbine-like school shooting, here's Roger Ebert on the media's behavior while reporting these kinds of events:

"Let me tell you a story. The day after Columbine, I was interviewed for the Tom Brokaw news program. The reporter had been assigned a theory and was seeking sound bites to support it. "Wouldn't you say," she asked, "that killings like this are influenced by violent movies?" No, I said, I wouldn't say that. "But what about 'Basketball Diaries'?" she asked. "Doesn't that have a scene of a boy walking into a school with a machine gun?"

"The obscure 1995 Leonardo Di Caprio movie did indeed have a brief fantasy scene of that nature, I said, but the movie failed at the box office (it grossed only $2.5 million), and it's unlikely the Columbine killers saw it.

"The reporter looked disappointed, so I offered her my theory. "Events like this," I said, "if they are influenced by anything, are influenced by news programs like your own. When an unbalanced kid walks into a school and starts shooting, it becomes a major media event. Cable news drops ordinary programming and goes around the clock with it. The story is assigned a logo and a theme song; these two kids were packaged as the Trench Coat Mafia. The message is clear to other disturbed kids around the country: If I shoot up my school, I can be famous. The TV will talk about nothing else but me. Experts will try to figure out what I was thinking. The kids and teachers at school will see they shouldn't have messed with me. I'll go out in a blaze of glory."

"In short, I said, events like Columbine are influenced far less by violent movies than by CNN, the NBC Nightly News and all the other news media, who glorify the killers in the guise of "explaining" them.

"I commended the policy at the Sun-Times, where our editor said the paper would no longer feature school killings on Page 1. The reporter thanked me and turned off the camera. Of course the interview was never used. They found plenty of talking heads to condemn violent movies, and everybody was happy."

This is Ebert again. I gather my point is what goes around, comes around."

Here They Come


Gun Rights Being Attacked
Leading the latest charge to confiscate and ban guns in the USA is none other than our own Attorney General Eric Holder. It's truly ironic that he has said that "WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES SOME HARD QUESTIONS’ ABOUT GUN RIGHTS AFTER CONN. SHOOTINGS."

Why is that ironic you say? Have you forgot that this is the same guy who perjured himself in front of Congress (under oath) when he LIED about "Fast and Furious." He was cited by Congress for Contempt of Congress. The chief law enforcement officer of the nation is a LIAR! Fast and Furious was the government sponsored program that allowed Mexican Drug Cartels to purchase weapons here in the US so they could illegally transport them to Mexico and use them there. Holder condoned that program and Obama protected him!

Holder now wants to ban guns! THAT'S just incredible!

Out Of The Woodwork
The massacre that killed 27 people on Friday doesn't stop gun banners from blowing their horn. It brings them out in greater numbers. The victims haven't been buried yet and the Anti-Gunners are busy calling for Banning guns. They have NO RESPECT for the families and victims.

Look who these people are. They are Secular Progressives. These are the same people who have been chipping away on YOUR liberties since 1913! They know that less guns doesn't equate to fewer murders. They just want MORE CONTROL over YOUR lives. The Founders wanted citizens to have guns to protect themselves from an overbearing government. Many government Progressives have personal body guards who are armed for their protection. These people don't want YOU to have ANY personal protection because that gives them control to tell you what to do.

The REAL Objective
This isn't just about banning firearms or safety. It's about controlling you and manipulating the masses. It's about the destruction of YOUR liberties. Don't be fooled. If they ban guns, crime will get worse because ONLY criminals will have guns. The perfect example is the United Kingdom (UK). Since they banned guns in the UK, crime has increased tremendously. What's worse, is that the government will have it easier to "regulate" your behavior. They will have no fear of uprisings when their citizens have no guns.

Action To Take
If you have a firearm and have NOT joined the National Rifle Association (alias the NRA), you need to join. It's $35 per year and your support helps protect YOUR LAWFUL RIGHT to own a gun. Here's how: Please do it today!

Doomsday/Mayan Prediction


Regardless
Some people believe that 12/21/2012 is the end of the world. Others believe that it is a day of some catastrophic event because of the end of the Mayan calendar. If it is the end, there's not much you can or should do. However, if there is some disaster in the near future, shouldn't you and your family be ready to face it head-on?

10 Things
Many articles have been written on stockpiling. Here is one of the more common checklists of things to have on hand for emergencies:

  1. Water and Non-Perishable Food - You should have 1 gallon of water/person/day. You should also have some sort of water filter system available, in case the municipal supply is contaminated. Canned goods can be eaten without cooking. Also have dry goods in case cooking is not a problem.
  2. Flashlights and Batteries - Use common size batteries, like AA, instead of batteries that are hard to find. 
  3. Candles, Matches, and Lighters - A small flame can light up an entire room and large ones provide a couple of hours of light for weeks. Keep your matches in a waterproof container.
  4. Clothes and Blankets - Keep clothes in a dry sack or bag. Give priority to wool because it keep you warm even in damp conditions. Suggestions: wool hat, wool socks, wool sweater, a pair of pants, a neck gaiter, underwear, gloves, and a jacket with a hood.
  5. Portable Stove or Camp Stove - Propane stoves or liquid-fuel stoves work best. Make yourself a Rocket Stove (YouTube it).
  6. Alternate Heat - Have a backup in case your primary heat source goes out. A fireplace, wood stove, or kerosene or propane space heater are good examples. Don't forget the fuel.
  7. Liquor, Coffee, and Cigarettes - These things make excellent barter items. Alcohol can also be used as a disinfectant.
  8. Guns and Ammunition - A .22 rifle, or a 12 gauge shotgun are good choices. Be sure you have plenty of ammo.
  9. Medical Kit - Medical kits should include first aid basics, plus a supply of regular medications you take. 
  10. Tools - Hammer, axe, screwdrivers, a knife, multitool, tape and glue, rope and twine, and a pry bar. 

Why Do This?
Remember Hurrincane Katrina? Hurrincane Sandy? That should be enough to get you moving! Does this make you a Prepper? You bet! Does this make you crazy? Nope!

Preppers


"Why Are Doomsday Preppers Hated So Much?
by PakalertPress.com

Have you noticed that it has become trendy to bash preppers?  For a long time the prepper movement was ignored, but now it has become so large that it is getting very difficult for the mainstream media to pretend that it is not there.  In fact, it has been estimated that there are now approximately 3 million preppersin the United States alone.  So now the mainstream media has decided that mocking the movement is the best strategy, and lots of “critics” and “skeptics” out there have picked up on this trend.  Instead of addressing the very real issues that have caused millions of Americans to prepare for the worst, those criticizing the prepper movement attempt to put the focus on individual personalities.  They try to find the strangest nutjobs they possibly can and then hold them up as “typical preppers”.  The goal is to portray preppers as tinfoil hat wearing freaks that need to be locked up in the loony bin for their own personal safety and for the good of society.  The criticism of preppers has really ramped up in recent months, and it will likely get even worse in 2013.  The establishment does not like any movement that is outside of their control, and the prepper movement is definitely not under their control.

Often, hit pieces on the prepper movement are disguised as articles or shows that are supposed to be “balanced” looks at the movement.  This is especially true of shows such as “Doomsday Preppers“.  That show is the highest rated show that the National Geographic channel has ever had, and it can be a lot of fun to watch.  But if you notice carefully, they almost always try to feature people that they consider to be “freaks” or that are “on the fringe of society”.  Many other “reality shows” follow the exact same recipe.  The goal is to draw high ratings by running a “freak show” that people can’t help but watch.

Even if you go on such a show and try to do your best to explain your prepping in a rational and coherent manner, they will still edit the footage so that it makes you look like a freak.  It really is a no-win proposition.  These shows are trying to make it clear that preppers should be mocked.  The underlying implication is that these people are crazy and that what they are doing is stupid.

And at the end of each segment, the producers of the show are careful to include reasons why the prepper that was just featured is being irrational and why the things they are preparing for are extremely unlikely to happen.  Just in case you missed the message they have been trying to communicate the entire time, they come right out and tell you the conclusion that you are supposed to come to.

And of course we see the same attitudes reflected in reviews of the show.  For example, the following is from a recent Los Angeles Times review of the new season of Doomsday Preppers…"

QE 4


Not Queen Elizabeth IV
QE 4 means "Quantative Easing part 4." This is the invention of Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve Chairman. Bernanke is deliberately devaluing YOUR dollars by printing money out of thin air. Unfortunately this is all quite legal. Thank both Congress and President Nixon.

Congress created the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913 which was supposed to protect our American dollar. However since its inception the dollar has decreased in value 96%. The net result is the insidious tax otherwise know as INFLATION. We don't even know who owns the Federal Reserve Bank. Perhaps George Soros has a piece of the action.

President Nixon in 1974 abolished the Gold Standard. This allowed Congress to establish a debt ceiling which lets them spend money they don't have and it allowed banks to use fiat currency without backing it up with gold. The next affect over time has been to devalue our currency and to allow the Federal Reserve to print money out of worthless paper. Our currency is NOT backed by anything!

Latest Easing
Now Ben Bernanke is launching another round of devaluing our currency. He's now printing $45 BILLION dollars a month and is buying US Treasuries with the valueless money. This act used to be against the law, but our Congress said that it was OK for the Treasury to sell bonds to the Fed. That's called "Monitizing" the debt. It's the best way to make American dollars worthless. You print money on worthless paper and then use it to buy bonds sold by the Treasury to help reduce our debt. The net affect is to debase our currency and cause increases in inflation.

Bernanke knows this and continues to perform this operation.

Action To Take
Demand that Congress put a stop to these destructive practices and FIRE Ben Bernanke!

You're Not Alone


Recent Poll
The Washington Post-ABC news poll reports that 54% of participants surveyed disapprove of Speaker Boehner's fiscal cliff negotiations. Only 24% approved of his negotiating. That sums-up our feeling too!

Why reward BAD BEHAVIOR over and over and over again? How long would you last at work if you received a poor performance rating over and over again? It's time to DUMP THE HEAD CHUMP in the House of Representatives and send him a strong message.

The times are a changing' and he'd better get on board or get thrown out of Congress all together.

Action To Take
Follow this link to fire Speaker Boehner. Don't procrastinate. Do it today. You HAVE the power to make a difference. Use it!

Make Believe


Kool Aid
Are you still drinking Kool Aid? Do you actually believe that John Boehner will NOT capitulate to President Obama?

Prediction
The Bush tax cuts will expire. Congress will not make any cuts in federal spending. Speaker Boehner will cave-in and there will be tax increases for more individuals than planned.

Pessimistic?
If this sounds negative, you're right. Look at the Congressional performance from the last time they faced making spending cuts. They couldn't do it so they created the "Super Committee." They are the ones who came up with the current disaster. They created the extreme cuts in military spending. They created the "fiscal cliff" scenario.

Reminder: Congress is supposed to create and follow an annual budget every year.

FACT: Our Senate has not met this performance requirement for the past four years. If they can't do a budget, what makes you think they can actually do anything serious about the deficit?

Do you still trust that they will look-out for your interests or the interests of this country? Hardly. Look at their record!  After all, they're just politicians. They lie and look you in the face, while they borrow and spend money they don't earn and give it to people who don't work, or blow it on bankrupt companies under the guise of Green Energy.

You or I could do a better job.

Do Something Positive


Yes, WE CAN Fire Boehner!
In case you haven't heard about it, there is a group active in the US who is seeking to FIRE House Speaker John Boehner ("R", OH). Incidentally, the "R" stands for RINO! Boehner is a milk-toast when it comes to serious negotiations. He's weak and let's Obama have HIS way! The AMA is a group of like minded CONSERVATIVE thinkers who are actively tying to FIRE John Boehner as Speaker of the House of representatives. Good for them.

Rather than roll-over and give-in to the Democrats on raising taxes and NOT cut spending - (ignoring Conservative principles), the American Majority Action group (AMA) campaigning to fire the Speaker.

Their web link is here:

The AMA are sick and tired of watching the Republican Party waffle and cave to Obama's demands over and over again under John Boehner's crappy "leadership." They are going to recommend to the Republican controlled House, three qualified Representatives instead of TURNCOAT Boehner.

The group will endorse Republican Representatives Jeb Hensarling (TX), Jim Jordan (OH) and Tom Price of (GA) to replace House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Whip Kevin McCarthy. AMA has been pushing the #FireBoehner hashtag on Twitter and encouraging people to stand up against the Speaker for abandoning conservatism.

The men suggested have strong Conservative records and truly represent the people!

Action To Take
You can influence American politics in Washington. Read the web site posted above. Follow their directions on how to fire the Speaker. Let your Congressional representatives know you want Boehner FIRED. Also let them know that if they ignore you this time, they will ALSO be out of a job because you will FIRE THEM in their next bid for re-election. It's time to stop IGNORING the Deficit and START CUTTING big government entitlements!

Game Plan


A Kid's Game
Any kid can future out Obama's game plan for "fixing" the fiscal cliff problem. He campaigned on raising taxes and that's just what he will do. He promoted class warfare, why stop with just the rich? There's nothing stopping him from limiting who he will raise taxes on so why not go for the gold and nail everybody in one swoop? In other words, Obama will let the Bush tax cuts all expire. This will not only punish the rich but also the entire middle class and the lower class as well. It will most likely plunge America into another recession.

Does Obama Care?
Chicago-style politicians don't play softball. They like to punish their opponents. Why else do you think that Obama wants to have full powers to raise the debt ceiling by himself? This action humiliates the GOP and gives him stronger dictatorial powers. Incidentally, the powers Obama strives for are not given to him, (or any President), in the Constitution. They ARE those of a DICTATOR!  In case you haven't noticed, Obama ignores the Constitution by circumventing Congress altogether! Instead he regulates using his CZARS or writes Presidential Executive Directives (another stretch of Presidential power).

Observe: If Obama really wanted to help solve the problem, why would he schedule a 20 day lavish vacation at the eleventh hour? In addition, he never mentions government cutting. He's as sincere as  termite! This illustrates Obama's negotiating in a bi-partisan way. He demands what HE wants, says he won't capitulate, and then leaves town to let it crash and burn.

When the SHTF
When the economy crashes (as the experts claim it will), Obama will never concede that HE is responsible. No, instead, he will point the finger again at the STUPID GOP and blame them again. Speaking of which, the GOP is nothing more now that a wing of the Democratic Party because they WILL raise taxes and cave to Obama's demands.

The Game Plan
Why did America re-elect this guy? Seriously! He doesn't care about the national debt - it's just the opposite.  His way is to expand government, continue spending us into disaster, and borrowing until he destroys the dollar. His goal is to CRASH the economy, and redistribute what's left to anyone who wants free stuff. Read Cloward and Piven's strategy for collapsing a government. Obama is following it to a tee.

Americans have been duped and haven't figured-out that Obama is NOT a friend to America as it was established, or to Americans who want to keep it that way. Maybe it DOES take a national calamity before people wake up. If that's true, then America will face some very dire consequences for being so apathetic!

Know Your Enemies


Americans Are Not Paying Attention
Did you know that there are 70 Congressional representatives that are members of the Democratic Socialist Party Caucus? 70! Don't you think you should know who these people are so you can vote them out of office? (Or maybe you don't care).

Socialist Euphemisms Defined
A Socialist is another name for a left-winger, a secular progressive, a leftist, a radical, a revolutionary, a militant, or a Communist. Underscore the last word COMMUNIST! Are we clear yet?

These people do not view America the same as the Founding Fathers. They do NOT believe in the Constitution. They do not like Capitalism. They do not like American values or American traditions. They are YOUR enemies. They are working towards destroying America as you know it. What are they still in office?

Boehner's Punitive Measures


Perfect Examples
House Speaker John Boehner (R, OH) has to be fired because he's playing dirty politics. I seems that if you disagree with HIS leadership, you receive punishment. John Boehner is a turncoat RINO!! In this example, there are two Congressmen who have received retaliation from the "Good-Old-Boy" establishment in the Republican Party.

They are Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R, KS) and Congressman Justin Amash (R, MI). Both representatives were elected in the 2010 elections by their constituents to cut spending and lower the debt ceiling with a balanced budget. Both men have voted according to the way their folks back home wanted. They have fought for and defended Conservative principles. The net result of being a true Conservative is to be punished by John Boehner and the GOP leadership.

Both men have been removed from their respective chair positions. What does that tell you? This is Boehner's way of letting them know that if they "buck" the leadership, they will get what they deserve. Boehner says that "there will be more of this."

WAKE UP America!
John Boehner is NOT a Conservative. His is discussing raising taxes and not cutting ANY spending! He's on the same side as the Democrats! He's going to cave-in like he always does to Obama's wishes. It's no wonder that the GOP lost the election with "leaders" like Boehner!

Punishing representatives for voting against raising the debt ceiling, cutting spending, and asking Congress to stop borrowing IS UNAMERICAN! Look who is supporting this effort! It's John Boehner! His way, or the highway. Gee, that sounds familiar!

Fire John Boehner


It Can Happen
Since the voters of Ohio did not fire House Speaker John Boehner (R, OH) we STILL can! Recall that as Speaker Boehner has caved-in to the Democrats on all important issues. He has NOT won one battle negotiating with his opponents! That's pathetic!

In other words, Boehner is a RINO (Republican in name only). He is NOT looking out for YOUR interests and we need a NEW leader to control the House of Representatives. John Boehner is NOT a Conservative. Look at his record! He directed the GOP to vote for the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Both destroy your freedoms under the guise of "protecting" you! These laws helped to destroy parts of the Constitution! He doesn't give a care!

Here's The Strategy
The position of Hose Speaker is voted on by the House members. In order to win, Boehner needs 218 votes to become Speaker again. Without 16 votes, he would not be re-elected as House Speaker opening the door for someone else to take charge and show some REAL leadership!

Action To Take
Let your Congressional representatives know that you are unhappy with Boehner's performance and tell them NOT TO VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN! We can do it. Isn't it time to have someone who actually represents CONSERVATIVE VALUES as House Speaker?

The GOP Is Dead


Kaput
Anyone who still has hope that the Republican Party can overcome its present condition is drinking too much Kool Aid. In 2010 we elected many new Tea Party Representatives to the GOP House. It didn't take too long for the majority of them to be co-opted by the Good-Old-Boys in Washington. Before we knew it, they were "persuaded" to vote for legislation that erodes more of our freedoms and liberties.

They voted to renew the Patriot Act with more governmental powers that destroy American freedoms. Shortly after that fiasco, our Congress passed the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). This gives act the President power to arrest and hold indefinitely ANYONE (including American citizens) without any cause other than they "think" you may be a terrorist. He can use our military to search your personal property and arrest you in your home without warrants and force you NOT to tell anyone about these ILLEGAL searches and seizures of your personal property. This law also established that the government can hold these suspected "terrorists" without any access to lawyers or ANY legal council. They will probably be sent to GITMO.

What Is Fascism?
Does that description of the new law sound like America or does it sound more like NAZI Germany? We as Americans have allowed this law to pass without any concern of just how intrusive and destructive it really is. The government is slowly chipping away of your freedoms. Little by little, we are sitting back and watching the Constitution being trampled on and our freedoms destroyed.

What Will It Take?
Just what exactly will it take for ALL Americans to realize what is happening? Do people have to be locked-up indefinitely or killed before the picture becomes clear? Then it will be too late.

The Republican Party is no friend of freedom. They have joined our enemies and are helping destroy liberty. This is why we need a third political party. Both parties are corrupted beyond saving.

America is at stake. If you care, you must act and not sit idle watching the erosion. Become active and take a stance to save your freedoms.

Egypt's Irony


Rioting In Egypt
It is truly ironic that the Egyptians recognize Fascism when confronted directly with it. They are rioting against their newly ordained "President" because he assumed dictatorial powers and they won't tolerate it. They just fought and died for freedom and don't want it to be stolen once again!

American's Complacency
On the other hand, people here in the USA either don't recognize totalitarianism when they see it, or they just don't have time to give a care about it. We have had freedom for a long time and now take it for granted. Additionally, we are unfortunately IGNORANT to the facts. Most Americans naively believe that this government take-over could never happen in the United States.

Collapse From Within
We are under attack and few people here in the the states even recognize it. Our President is deliberately trying to collapse our economy and weaken our military. He deliberately assumes powers never granted to him or his office. He does so on a regular basis. Congress ignores it and we do too. We never hold anyone accountable any more for THEIR actions.

That's a pity and it will come home to rest. One of the main responsibilities under a Republic is to be watchful over your government. Governments always tend to grow and try to assume powers they should never have or were ever granted to them. We aren't being watchful and look at where we are today. We can't trust our own elected officials to represent US any longer. Once they get to Washington, they get co-opted by the POWER-CORRUPTED OFFICIALS already there. Corruption is rampant.

The Blame
Its our own fault. We have ignore the corruption for too long. We keep re-electing the scoundrels who have poisoned our government. We have ignored the lies and scandals too long. We have been too busy to care. Our freedoms are eroding and no one seems to care. Before you know it, we will have reached the point of no return and it will be too late. America is in transformation and if YOU don't speak-out now, it's your fault.

Obama's Ultimate Goal



Objectives
If you seriously believe that Obama is looking out for you or America in general, you are living in La-La Land. Keep drinking the Kool Aid. Obama wants to collapse our economy. His actions speak volumes about his goals. Just look at his "premier" projects. Green Energy has wasted BILLIONS of your dollars. We have nothing to show for it. We've wasted our credit bailing out solar companies that go bankrupt. Meanwhile, Obama continues on these wasteful goals.

Automobile bailouts: (nationalization of 2 car companies) We sold Chrysler at a loss and never got paid back for the loans we gave them. Government Motors (GM): Ditto! And now GM is building a Chevy Volt that only goes 35 miles on a charge. No one is buying it! Another failure at YOUR expense.

Unannounced Objective
Obama wants to weaken out military. He wants the cuts to go deep into our military. He continues expanding our military operations all over the world. This dilutes our forces and weakens our ability to be defensive. The biggest goal he continues towards is to allow Iran to get the Atomic bomb. Just where do you actually think they will direct this power? Israel first, then guess who next?

Meanwhile, Obama continues to unilaterally disarm out nuclear warheads. His goal is to cut warheads from 1,500 to under 300 before he leave office. This will embolden our enemies and make the United States vulnerable for attacks from more powerful countries like China and Russia - who will have many more warheads than a mere 300!

Sleep Well
Obama has four more years to achieve his objectives of "Fundamentally Transforming America." Thank the fools who voted for him the second time around.

Just Say No To E-15


EPA Pushes Onward
If you haven't bothered to take any notice, the price you pay for gasoline includes the additive "alcohol." Adding 10% alcohol is supposed to cut down on emissions and help save the planet. What environmentalists forget to mention is that alcohol is lower octane and does not have the same energy content per gallon as gasoline. The consequences are that it still costs $50-100 to fill up, you use leads "dirty gasoline," but you drive less miles because of the added alcohol blend. Alcohol reduces your mile per gallon significantly.

The latest brainstorm of the Obama Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is to increase the alcohol content per gallon from 10% to 15%. Once again, what the environmentalist forget to tell you is that alcohol in that concentration is highly corrosive on automobile fuel systems. Each car that runs on 15% alcohol should be retrofitted by each owner to enable the use of alcohol without destroying your car and causing expensive repairs. If untreated for running alcohol, you will erode your automobile engines!

Action To Take
Get your Congressional reps on board with stopping these new regulations. Suggest that Congress cut the EPA's annual budget to squeeze them back to a reasonable position. We cannot afford our cars to be destroyed by EPA regulations!

Obama's 2nd Term Theme Song

History Does Repeat Itself
Back before most of you were born, there was a popular song written in 1931 by lyricist E. Y. Harburg and composer Jay Gorney. It's a fitting tune that is coming back because of the times created under the Obama Administration. The song is called "Buddy, Can You Spare A Dime?"

Chorus Lyrics
You don't have to know the melody or the words to the whole song because the chorus really sums up the way things are heading here in America once again. They are as follows:


"Once I built a railroad, I made it run, 

  Made it race against time.

  Once I built a railroad, now it's done…

  Buddy, can you spare a dime."

Obama's Goal
If you haven't noticed, Obama hasn't given much thought to making ANY cuts in federal spending. That's because he has no plan for federal cutting. Just the opposite!! In fact, he would rather wait until NEXT year to have any serious discussion about them. In other words, SCREW federal cuts - ESPECIALLY in federal entitlements! He wants to collapse the economy by spending and borrowing us into oblivion.

This shouldn't be any surprise to those who know Obama for what he is - a liar. Don't listen to his words because he is the "Pied Piper" and can magically get you to follow him to the end of the earth. Previous countries in the past have suffered similar consequences when people were mesmerized by dynamic speakers, who turned out to be dictators.

Instead, watch HIS ACTIONS, because they speak volumes about what he's really up to and what he's really doing to the economy. Although claiming to be "transparent," Obama is just the opposite. He hides many of his activities and those in his cabinet (including his CZARS). His Department of Justice is a perfect example. They have stonewalled Congress, refusing to provide subpoenaed  documents on Fast and Furious.

Get Used To It
Leopards don't change their spots. This guy will continue to show his true color (MARXIST RED) throughout the next four years of his second term. Be ready to watch your personal freedoms and liberties disappear along with your money and property (if you're lucky enough to have any)!

Seriously!


Deficit Cuts
Are you one of the millions who actually still believe President Obama will make an honest attempt to stop the hemorrhaging of our economy? It must be nice to live in "La-La Land." His latest brainstorm already shows his plan. This year he just wants to raise taxes. Next year he wants to discuss spending and cutting. The key word there is "discuss." Obama has NO PLAN for making ANY CUTS!

Isn't that kicking the can down the road once again?

Serious Subject
Our national deficits are so important to Obama that he hasn't bothered to meet with anyone in Congress for the past 13 days. Instead, he's out campaigning to get a few groups to support his new plan… spend more, tax more, borrow more. Once again, he's ignoring Congress. So what else is new?

If you haven't got the message, you're head is in the sand. He and Michelle are busy getting ready for their next $4 Million dollar vacation to Hawaii for the Christmas (no, strike the word "Christmas" because Progressives don't like that word) Holiday. Oh, and yes, we will all pick up the tab! After all, he deserves it after such a grueling political campaign.

WAKE UP
If you haven't learned yet, understand this: Don't listen to what Obama says. Watch what he does!

Your New Taxes 2013


New Taxes Already On The Books
Strange how the Obama administration isn't talking about the new $268 BILLION dollar tax hike that hits all Americans this year. Like no other, you cannot avoid these new taxes because the Democratic Congress shoved them down your throats.

5 Taxes
There are a total of five new taxes, as follows:

  1. Medicare Payroll Tax Hike -- Total $86.8 billion tax increase!  The Medicare payroll tax is currently 2.9 percent on all wages and self-employment profits.  The new increase is now on wages and profits exceeding $200,000 ($250,000 in the case of married couples). That's a 3.8 percent rate increase. This is a direct tax hike on small business owners, who are liable for self-employment tax.
  2. Medical Itemized Deductions – Total $15.2 billion tax increase! Currently, if you are facing high medical expenses, you are allowed a deduction not to exceed 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income. By limiting this deduction, Obamacare widens the net of taxable income for the sickest Americans.  This tax provision will most harm near retirees and those with modest incomes but high medical bills.
  3. Surtax on Investment Income – Total $123 billion tax increase!  This is a new, 3.8 percentage point surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single). Affecting seniors the most.
  4. “Special Needs Kids Tax” – Total $13 billion tax increase!  If you use a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for your family’s basic medical needs, you now have a cap of $2,500 - instead of being unlimited. The affects parents of special needs children. 
  5. Medical Device Tax – Total $20 billion tax increase!  Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales of all medical devices.  In addition to killing small business jobs and impacting research and development budgets, this will increase the cost of your health care – making everything from pacemakers, CPAP machines, to prosthetics. Net affect making all devices more expensive.

Still Glad?
Are you still happy that you voted for Obama? You cannot escape paying these new taxes. The government is now in charge of your health care! Goodbye seniors, because the Death Panels are coming next!

Guest Article - Obama's "Fixed" Election


Obama Fraud Voter Map
by Mytheos Holt

"Those arguing that President Obama’s victory in the election a few weeks back was due to fraud may have found a dubious ally in their quest to argue that Mitt Romney’s rightful victory was stolen from under his nose.

That ally is the much-mocked Dean Chambers, creator of the now arguably discredited website UnskewedPolls.com. Chambers, fresh off his last venture into arguing with numbers, has created the site barackofraudo.com, where he has posted this map, which he claims represents states that President Obama won by voter fraud:


Dave Weigel of Slate reports:
Anyway, the polls were right. Chambers has moved on, launching BarackOFraudo.com, “exposing how they stole the 2012 election.” It leads off with a map of the 2012 election that blacks out Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, and Virginia. They are “states won by Obama fraud.” What’s Chambers going on for that?

“I’m getting credible information of evidence in those states that there enough numbers that are questionable and could have swung the election,” he says. “I’m only putting good credible information on there, like the actual vote counts, reports, and mainstream publications reporting voter fraud. There’s a lot of chatter, though. There are articles people have sent me that don’t hold up. Crazy stuff.”
What’s not crazy? “Things like the 59 voting divisions of Philadelphia where Romney received zero votes,” says Chambers. “Even Larry Sabato said that should be looked into.” (I’ve looked into this: 57 precincts gave McCain no votes in 2008. There’s such a thing as a 99% Democratic precinct, and such a thing as a 99% Republican precinct.) Same story in Ohio. “Some of the precincts or divisions in cleveland were projected to be 99% Obama. That’s a part of the state where it’s known that a lot of ballot box scamming has been done in the past. There were isolated reports of people voting for Romney and having votes changed, though they didn’t get much attention.

To Chambers’ credit, he admits that he’s trying to prove something very difficult by amassing the data on his site, yet still sticks to the story he’s telling:

 Evidence of vote fraud is very much like that. Those who engage in it are slick and do all they can to hide it, so the evidence is often quite circumstantial. In fact, often the circumstantial evidence is all the evidence we have, such was finding tens of thousands of bogus votes in the ballot box, we didn’t see someone actually put them there, but they are found, they are there, and they are clearly evidence of vote fraud. Such is true of the voting divisions where Obama gets 100 percent of the votes cast. As if anyone REALLY believes that is legitimate.

As documented by TheBlaze, there are voting divisions where Mitt Romney also got 100 percent of the votes cast. Because of missed details like this, and his erroneous claim elsewhere that Virginia wasn’t called until Obama was leading, Chambers’ argument probably won’t face any success, or be taken with much seriousness by RNC leaders. However, that’s never stopped any of his fellow campaigners against stolen elections before."

Where's your outrage America?

Repeal It Yourself


Refuse ObamaCare
We can repeal the government mandated take-over of your health care  - called "Obamacare." Several states are beginning to understand that they truly cannot afford ObamaCare. Missouri is one good example.

The Republicans (in control of state politics) are refusing to cooperate with the federal government. They have done cost estimates and have come to the conclusion that they cannot afford it. They state that the potential "benefits" to the state far outweigh any potential benefits of the program. ObamaCare expands the roll of Medicare which will cost the states BILLIONS of dollars. In the beginning, the federal government will subsidize these costs, but only for a short time. Then the states have to fund Medicare and eat the costs themselves.

What This Means
If you are one of the 30 other states that has a Republican controlled legislature, you may also be able to tell the federal government to "SHOVE IT" - just like they did to you when they passed it without your consent.

If enough states refuse to cooperate, the fed will NOT be able to implement Obamacare. This idea is similar in nature to the federal laws against marijuana. The federal government prohibits the growth and sale of marijuana. However, that law is NOT STOPPING several states (including Colorado, California, and Washington state) from ignoring federal law. They have chosen to implement their own laws on marijuana and have legalized its sale.

If it works on this topic, it can work on medical healthcare.

Action To Take
Demand that your state legislature IGNORE the implementation of ObamaCare. Use the Saul Alinsky tactic (collapse the government mandate by overloading it to failure) to get your way for a change!

Suckers


Student Aid
If you are a young person who voted fro President Obama in either 2008, 2012, or both times, you've been had. In both campaigns he promised college students that he would cut their college costs.

In Obama's first term in office, college costs rose 25%. The average college tuition loans rose 16%. How's that for reality?

The Latest Plan
Now that Obama is re-elected (and by the way, Obama Thanks all college students for voting for him), he's giving college kids the good-old college SCREW JOB! He's initiating cutting Pell Grants by over 8%. And, oh, by the way, student loan origination fees will increase by more than $140 million.

How's that for a Presidential promise? Let's face it, he lied to get their votes. They fell for his CRAP and now Obama is throwing college students under the bus. Welcome to the group.

Get What You Deserve (Reap What You Sow)
If you don't think before you vote, you get what you deserve. If you don't look into the facts and learn about Obama's scandals, lying, incompetence, and cronyism before you vote, you get what you deserve.

Unfortunately, now we all have to suffer.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Be Thankful
Today is the one day that most Americans have to sit back and enjoy a good meal with family and friends. It's still an American tradition that hasn't been destroyed by the Secular Progressives - YET!

Enjoy yourselves and please remember to be thankful for those who serve in our military. They don't have the day off and can't be home. Also show gratitude to police and firefighters for the same reason.

Reflect on your blessings and downplay the negatives...

Death of Thanksgiving


Merchants Destroy Another One
Did you notice how merchants have destroyed Christmas? They had Christmas displays out in the stores in September this year. People complain that the holiday is way over commercialized. It IS!!

Progressives Killed Christmas
Political correctness destroyed Christmas too. You can't display a nativity scene any longer. The Atheists, ACLU, or anyone who is "offended" by Christian religious displays are trying their best to eliminate Christmas in any form. The PC NAZIs want to destroy American traditions and they are once again doing so. They neutered "Merry Christmas" into "Season's Greetings." A recent survey shows that 45% of Americans would rather forgo Christmas altogether! Christmas is just about DEAD!

What About Thanksgiving?
Now merchants are deliberately trying to destroy Thanksgiving, the LAST America tradition. Black Friday should become the NEW holiday. That's the day that merchants strive to get more shoppers in their stores than all year. Merchants advertise that they will be opened ON THANKSGIVING DAY evening. Stores open at 4:00 AM while customers line-up and punch their way into the stores to get the bargains. So what happened to the real holiday if stores are opened? Doesn't that destroy the holiday altogether? Why can't American families enjoy one day a year to reflect and show gratitude?

Am I Alone Here?
Do you feel that merchants are killing Thanksgiving?

Change the Electoral College Vote


12th Amendment
The 12th Amendment clearly states that in order to "elect" the President there must be a 2/3 majority in the Electoral College. This vote has not happened yet. Some are speculating that Obama could be stopped from being re-elected by following the Constitution to the letter of the law.

Here's How
If the Electoral College does NOT get a quorum of two-thirds of the states voting, Obama cannot become the next President. If enough states in the Union refuse to participate in the Electoral College, this tactic will work.

Mitt Romney carried 24 states. If 17 of those 24 states refuse to participate in the Electoral College, Obama is NOT the next President. Or at least, not yet…

Then Who Decides?
Now comes the good news. The Constitution  spells-out the steps required in just this circumstance. The House of Representatives votes for the next President of the United States. The US Senate votes for the next Vice President of the US.

Assuming that the majority of the House of Representatives remain true to their Party, they would vote for Romney as President. Since the Senate is dominated by the Democrats, they would probably elect Joe Biden as Vice President.

Very interesting…

Action To Take
Share this strategy with friends, family, and like-minded people. Have them all contact the electors in your state, party officials, and secretaries from every state. Persuade them NOT to participate in the Electoral College.

It's worth a shot. It could change the election - legally!

Is Benghazi Important?


Where Do You Stand?
The Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012 are long over. How important are they anyway? Yes, we lost an American ambassador and three other Americans. We still haven't done much to try and capture those responsible. Why not?

The Issues At Hand
Current information points to the fact that the White House (including President Obama and his representatives) mislead the American public and the world about the perpetrators of the assassination. In a word, they LIED! Why?

Do you think that this is important? Why did they lie about the cause and perpetrators in the first place? Who actually lied. Was it the President? Was it Hillary Clinton? If so, shouldn't they be held accountable for misleading America?

Every time the White House gives any accounting of the attack, their story is always different. Their time lines never are consistent. Why can't we rely on them to tell us the truth? What are they hiding?

No Integrity
If the President is lying, why is he? Was this mere incompetence on his part, or is there more behind the cover up? What part did Valery Jarrett have in this? Who altered the message that was broadcast by Ambassador Rice on five networks that was a blatant LIE? Was this lying to protect Obama's re-election efforts? We need to know. Whoever is behind the efforts to deceive the American public, they need to be held accountable. This IS worse than Watergate! Four Americans are dead!

If the White House staff and the President lack honesty and integrity, how can we trust them to lead our country out of the recession, deal with the Middle East, and settle our budget problems?

Action To Take
Let your representatives know that you DEMAND answers to this cover up. Hold the deceivers accountable - even if it means charging Obama with IMPEACHMENT!

Short and Sweet


Benghazi Cover Up
General Petraeus testified today that the White House knew within 24 hours after the attack that it was driven by TERRORISTS! Now it becomes a simple matter to ask some basic questions that DEMAND answers from President Obama and his Cabinet members.

Questions To Ask
Who in the White House changed the talking points that were provided by the intelligence community? Was it Obama? Valerie Jarrett? Hillary Clinton? Who?

Why did the perpetrator change the intelligence community talking points? What was their motivation for doing so? Was it ideology? Did they actually believe that ALL terrorists had been destroyed? Or more likely, was it political? Did President Obama want to avoid the embarrassment of Benghazi by LYING to the America public so he could get re-elected?

Where This Leads
This investigation leads to the top of the food chain in Washington. Right to the very top. The White House. The President, and his Cabinet. They are all "suspects" in this investigation.

This could result in the IMPEACHMENT of President Obama. Now that's a GREAT Legacy for his second term in office. Short and sweet.

We demand the TRUTH and we also DEMAND action from Congress! Hold the White House accountable for their actions!

Petitions to Secede


Think First
If you are one of the many that are NOT happy with the possible fraudulent Presidential election results (and there are many), you'd better think before you act. All 50 states have now initiated petitions to secede from the United States peacefully. Well over 700,000 citizens have stepped forward and signed these petitions. (25,000 signatures are needed before the federal government will consider each petition validated). About 8-9 states have reached this goal.

At first glance this may seem to be a great idea. However, when you look closely, it may be a very BAD idea. The federal government is the host for all the petitions for seceding. In order to participate in signing these various state petitions you need to REGISTER with the hosting web site. That's the same government with whom you are displeased.

Pause and Reflect
Ok, you're mad and want to sign that petition. Are you ready to fill-in the registration form that is required to take action AGAINST the government? Is it a wise thing to announce to the very government who you have disdain for that YOU want to un-join from the union? After all, you're giving the government you name, address, phone number and other personal information - all in the "innocent" guise of "registration." Do you trust that the government will "understand" how you feel? Is there any chance that the government would NOT be happy with you?

Don't you think that the government will want to know who all their enemies are and where they all live? Isn't that the underlying purpose for all forms of registration? Governments use registration procedures to keep track of people, firearms, and various political activities. Are you sure you want the government to know without any doubt, that you are one of their antagonists? Seriously, isn't that just like shooting yourself in the foot? Doesn't that inflict personal damage to you and your family? Maybe.

What If
There probably won't be any repercussions for your registering. This is - after all still America! However, if there are unforeseen "changes" in the government, this information is in their databases. If the government does not take too kindly to "agitators" or "disgruntled citizens" this could be used to seek you and your family out for government interventions.

Ask yourself: Do you like the direction that the government is heading? Do you want to draw strong attention to you and your family by the government? Do you have the necessary resources to take-on the government by yourself? Aren't there other ways to relieve the negativity that you feel without endangering yourself?

Channel your efforts in a less self-destructive way. Become active in a Libertarian or Tea Party Movement in your local community. Write a blog. Become politically active. Use your energy in a positive direction. Don't put government focus on YOU!

Obama's Secret


News Flash
Why hasn't the Corrupt Media reported on the fact that Obama is preparing to take control of YOUR lives? Obama's secret plan for a national emergency. He takes over everything! Here is his executive order. He assumes dictatorial powers. Here is his executive order:

"Executive Order -- Establishing the White House Homeland Security Partnership Council

EXECUTIVE ORDER
- - - - - - -
ESTABLISHING THE WHITE HOUSE
HOMELAND SECURITY PARTNERSHIP COUNCIL

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to advance the Federal Government's use of local partnerships to address homeland security challenges, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. The purpose of this order is to maximize the Federal Government's ability to develop local partnerships in the United States to support homeland security priorities. Partnerships are collaborative working relationships in which the goals, structure, and roles and responsibilities of the relationships are mutually determined. Collaboration enables the Federal Government and its partners to use resources more efficiently, build on one another's expertise, drive innovation, engage in collective action, broaden investments to achieve shared goals, and improve performance. Partnerships enhance our ability to address homeland security priorities, from responding to natural disasters to preventing terrorism, by utilizing diverse perspectives, skills, tools, and resources.

The National Security Strategy emphasizes the importance of partnerships, underscoring that to keep our Nation safe "we must tap the ingenuity outside government through strategic partnerships with the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, and community-based organizations. Such partnerships are critical to U.S. success at home and abroad, and we will support them through enhanced opportunities for engagement, coordination, transparency, and information sharing." This approach recognizes that, given the complexities and range of challenges, we must institutionalize an all-of-Nation effort to address the evolving threats to the United States.

Sec. 2. White House Homeland Security Partnership Council and Steering Committee.

(a) White House Homeland Security Partnership Council. There is established a White House Homeland Security Partnership Council (Council) to foster local partnerships -- between the Federal Government and the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, community-based organizations, and State, local, tribal, and territorial government and law enforcement -- to address homeland security challenges. The Council shall be chaired by the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (Chair), or a designee from the National Security Staff.

(b) Council Membership.

(i) Pursuant to the nomination process established in subsection (b)(ii) of this section, the Council shall be composed of Federal officials who are from field offices of the executive departments, agencies, and bureaus (agencies) that are members of the Steering Committee established in subsection (c) of this section, and who have demonstrated an ability to develop, sustain, and institutionalize local partnerships to address policy priorities.

(ii) The nomination process and selection criteria for members of the Council shall be established by the Steering Committee. Based on those criteria, agency heads may select and present to the Steering Committee their nominee or nominees to represent them on the Council. The Steering Committee shall consider all of the nominees and decide by consensus which of the nominees shall participate on the Council. Each member agency on the Steering Committee, with the exception of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, may have at least one representative on the Council.

(c) Steering Committee. There is also established a Steering Committee, chaired by the Chair of the Council, to provide guidance to the Council and perform other functions as set forth in this order. The Steering Committee shall include a representative at the Deputy agency head level, or that representative's designee, from the following agencies:

(i) Department of State;
(ii) Department of the Treasury;
(iii) Department of Defense;
(iv) Department of Justice;
(v) Department of the Interior;
(vi) Department of Agriculture;
(vii) Department of Commerce;
(viii) Department of Labor;
(ix) Department of Health and Human Services;
(x) Department of Housing and Urban Development;
(xi) Department of Transportation;
(xii) Department of Energy;
(xiii) Department of Education;
(xiv) Department of Veterans Affairs;
(xv) Department of Homeland Security;
(xvi) Office of the Director of National Intelligence;
(xvii) Environmental Protection Agency;
(xviii) Small Business Administration; and
(xix) Federal Bureau of Investigation.

At the invitation of the Chair, representatives of agencies not listed in subsection (c) of this section or other executive branch entities may attend and participate in Steering Committee meetings as appropriate.

(d) Administration. The Chair or a designee shall convene meetings of the Council and Steering Committee, determine their agendas, and coordinate their work. The Council may establish subgroups consisting exclusively of Council members or their designees, as appropriate.

Sec. 3. Mission and Function of the Council and Steering Committee. (a) The Council shall, consistent with guidance from the Steering Committee:

(i) advise the Chair and Steering Committee members on priorities, challenges, and opportunities for local partnerships to support homeland security priorities, as well as regularly report to the Steering Committee on the Council's efforts;
(ii) promote homeland security priorities and opportunities for collaboration between Federal Government field offices and State, local, tribal, and territorial stakeholders;
(iii) advise and confer with State, local, tribal, and territorial stakeholders and agencies interested in expanding or building local homeland security partnerships;
(iv) raise awareness of local partnership best practices that can support homeland security priorities;
(v) as appropriate, conduct outreach to representatives of the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, community-based organizations, and State, local, tribal, and territorial government and law enforcement entities with relevant expertise for local homeland security partnerships, and collaborate with other Federal Government bodies; and
(vi) convene an annual meeting to exchange key findings, progress, and best practices.

(b) The Steering Committee shall:

(i) determine the scope of issue areas the Council will address and its operating protocols, in consultation with the Office of Management and Budget;
(ii) establish the nomination process and selection criteria for members of the Council as set forth in section 2(b)(ii) of this order;
(iii) provide guidance to the Council on the activities set forth in subsection (a) of this section; and
(iv) within 1 year of the selection of the Council members, and annually thereafter, provide a report on the work of the Council to the President through the Chair.

Sec. 4. General Provisions. (a) The heads of agencies participating in the Steering Committee shall assist and provide information to the Council, consistent with applicable law, as may be necessary to implement this order. Each agency shall bear its own expense for participating in the Council.

(b) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department, agency, or the head thereof;
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals; or
(iii) the functions of the Overseas Security Advisory Council.

(c) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and appropriate protections for privacy and civil liberties, and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(d) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

More Probability of Fraud


Statistically Impossible 
When you look at the election results in Ohio, there is a good reason to suspect foul play in the Presidential election. Here's why…

What's the likely hood that Romney would not receive one vote in 59 precincts in Cleveland? That's just physically IMPOSSIBLE! Probability would tell you that he would have to receive at least some votes. The odds of NOT receiving ANY votes is astronomical. But that's exactly what happened!

This fact strains the validity of this election results in Cleveland, Ohio!

What's also ironic is the fact that early voting in this same area showed what officials called voting "irregularities." We have discussed these anomalies before. It was reported in several "Swing States" that electronic voting machines were changing the votes for Romney to Obama. Local state officials said that things were under control. REALLY?

Demand Investigations
We should demand that these "irregularities" all be investigated - including the actual voting machines themselves. This evidence points to a STRONG possibility of election fraud and perhaps a FIXED PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!

What If?


Close Race
So what if you're the President and you have a bad record on the economy? How could you win a tight political race? First, you would smear the daylights out of your opponent. If that didn't work, what else could you do to win to stay in office?

Fix The Election
This is so obviously impossible to do that no one even considers it. But wait just a minute. Take a closer look at this possibility. Computer experts agree that it only takes about 100 lines of computer code to rig the electronic voting machines to switch candidate votes. If well written, this code would self-destruct after the tallies are taken leaving no trace of the tampering. Thus, committing the perfect crime of "fixing" the election.

In a tight election like the one we just had, you don't need to tamper with all the machines in all 50 states. The only machines you need to "fix" are in 4-5 key states with the highest number of Electoral Votes. These states are the so-called "Swing States." That makes throwing the election easier and more plausible.

Step Back a Minute
Do you recall reports surfacing during the early voting in several Swing States describing voting "irregularities?" As a matter of fact, there were problems reported in OH, NC, NV, VA, and even PA.

Early voters were complaining that when they double-checked their ballots just before casting their vote, the machines had changed a "Romney" vote to "Obama." Were these "Irregularities" just that? If they were an accident, why were all the lopsided votes ALL being cast for just Obama? Why were they only being reported in the Swing States? Coincidence? Why weren't those voting machines investigated? How secure are electronic machines from tampering?

Recall Minnesota
A while back, there was an election recall in Minnesota. Incumbent Norm Coleman (R, MN) was running against Al Franken (comedian). Franken called for a recounting of the votes because Coleman had won by just 725 votes.

Frankin immediately asked billionaire George Soros for financial help along with the Democratic Party. Strangely, during the recount, the people counting were finding ballots everywhere  - all for Frankin. They found 300 ballots in the trunk of one of the poll workers. Oddly enough, they were all cast for Al Frankin!

243 people in MN were tried and convicted for voter fraud in THAT election alone. In the end, Frankin only won by 312 votes. This election still smells of rampant voter fraud.

Can't Happen
So if it possibly happened in the state of Minnesota, why couldn't it happen elsewhere? With a billionaire like Soros, money to fund such a project is not a problem. All you have to do is to "Contaminate" the voting machines in the Swing States and thus, Obama wins re-election.

Think about it. It IS possible - especially in a tight race. Unfortunately, we will never know.
