"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

This Just In...Obama Is A Leftist!

Written by Larry Elder - Syndicated Columnist 9/3/2009 10:20:00 AM (Larry Elder is black. He sees just who and what Obama is. His views mirror the views of many other Americans. But if they were written by a white columnist, they would be labeled "racist". Why is that?) "Now I'm truly scared." A friend wrote this after she watched Fox News' Glenn Beck's series on the "alarming number of far-left radicals the President is surrounded by" -- referring to some of the president's special advisers and "czars." President Barack Obama, my friend tells me, is "a true left-winger." So, now she knows. She didn't know after the president signed the $800 billion so-called "stimulus program." She didn't know after government takeovers/bailouts of banks, insurance companies and auto companies. She didn't know after Obama campaigned in favor of protectionism by promising to unilaterally change free trade agreements, such as NAFTA, or after the inclusion of "Buy American" provisions in the "stimulus package." She didn't know after Obama campaigned on government-run healthcare or after he said during the campaign that "if starting from scratch," he'd implement the Canadian single-payer system. She didn't know after Obama stated his goal to impose job-killing and price-hiking "cap-and-trade" business taxes to fight "man-made global warming." (Never mind the vigorous debate in the scientific community about the degree to which -- or even whether -- human activity is the cause and whether it makes more sense to deal with the effect of a slight warming than to undertake costly and likely ineffective measures to stop it.) She didn't know after Obama's plans to "invest" to "create green jobs" of the future or after he moved oversight of the next census from the Department of Commerce to the White House (in order to increase the number of minorities so that government money can follow). She didn't know after Obama sided with black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates and turned the professor's altercation with Cambridge police into a microcosm of the alleged widespread problem of unlawful "racial profiling" against blacks; after Obama spent 20 years in a church led by a smoke-coming-out-of-the-nose, America-bashing "spiritual adviser"; after Obama's selection of an attorney general who called America "cowardly" on matters of race; after the AG's refusal to indict members of the New Black Panther Party for seemingly clear voter intimidation; or after Obama's selection of a Supreme Court justice who many times claimed her gender and ethnicity make her superior to a "white male." She didn't know after a proposal by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) to cap executive pay -- for both those businesses that receive taxpayer money and those that don't; after Obama's promise for a government-provided "world-class education" to all who want it; or after the Cash for Clunkers program, under which A helped pay for the purchase of a car for B. She didn't know after Obama promised to sit down "without preconditions" with enemies like the president of Iran and the head of North Korea; after Obama slammed Israel for building or expanding settlements, with nary a word about the daily rockets landing in Israel from the Gaza Strip; after proposals to reduce spending on missile shield defense; after the AG appointed a "special counsel" to determine whether workers at the CIA -- during the Bush administration -- should be prosecuted for using Justice Department-approved techniques to interrogate terrorists (despite a previously undertaken investigation by career prosecutors and over the objection of the current CIA head); or that the term "war on terror" would no longer be used. She didn't know after the public support of leaders in the Democratic Party -- including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and former presidential candidate John Kerry -- for the reinstatement of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" to provide ideological "balance" over the airwaves; or after Obama, while publicly opposing the reinstatement of the doctrine, appointed an FCC "diversity czar" to pursue the same objective: squelching conservative talk radio. What does it take for some to wake up? When Obama publicly asserts that some corporations, including "Big Oil" and medical insurance companies, make "obscene profits" (they don't compare with many other industries) and that his "compensation czar" will look into executive compensation, what does that tell you? When he argues that medical insurance companies need a "public option" (before public opinion forced him to back away from it) to keep them "honest," what does that say? When he arrogantly claims that fighting "global warming" and tackling the "healthcare crisis" are not just moral imperatives but also necessary to keep our economy robust (?!), what does that show? Voters last year elected a left-wing former "community organizer" with one of the Senate's most liberal voting records. He seeks to take the country -- over the growing resistance of even those who voted for him -- to an idealized world of government-guaranteed equality of outcomes. He wants a government-guaranteed "level playing field" of wealth redistribution via taxing those deemed to have too much. Obama's goals are open, blatant, and confidently asserted, backed by a filibuster-proof, supermajority, Democratic-controlled Congress. There is no Big Secret, no subterfuge, no bait-and-switch. This is who and what he is. Wake Up America!

Email the White House With YOUR Questions

The White House is full of tech savvy individuals, they know how to send emails! They send them out to people who don't even want them. On August 24th I sent this email to the White House. Though I checked that I wanted a response, I haven't received one. Strange. I resent the email, stating that I had asked for a response and requesting they provide me a date for when I could expect a response. I sent that one on September 1st. I'm still waiting. Think I'll get one? I don't - the White House doesn't answer tough questions it seems. Here's the email... Good Afternoon, I have a few questions relative to a number of issues to which I would like truthful and complete answers. As checked below, please provide a response. Thank you in advance. Does the FBI do the vetting for the many Czars appointed by President Obama? Are the Czars paid with taxpayer dollars? How big a staff are they allowed (and please provide the staffing number currently employed on the largest team)? Are the Czar staffs paid with taxpayer dollars? What plan has the Obama administration developed to fund the "unfunded liability" we currently have relative to the Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security programs? That liability currently stands at over 644 Trillion dollars and is growing! Where and when did President Obama meet Van Jones? Does President Obama know and understand how radical Van Jones is? Before appointing Van Jones, did President Obama know that he was a self-avowed communist? If not, does he know it now, and what does he plan to do about that appointment? How is the Apollo Alliance tied to the Obama Administration? The entire US Constitution was created on 6 sheets of paper. Our Congressmen create bills that exceed 1000 pages. Why can't they create legislation in a much shorter format? And why aren't bills created and written in layman's term so that ALL Americans can read and understand them? Why is that not a law? And why is there no law that ALL congressmen must read and understand any bill set before them PRIOR to that bill receiving a vote? Thank you for your time. Flood the White House with emails folks! Make someone answer our questions. They want to use the tactics of flooding the system, well we can too! Wake Up America!

Questions, Questions

How did Van Jones' name get on the 9/11 "truther" document? He claims he doesn't believe, nor has he ever believed, any 9/11 conspiracy existed. He claims he didn't know what he was signing. And yet, he signed the document anyway. Either he's lying now, or he signed the document for some past gain. What was that? And is this the kind of person we want in our government? Someone who won't take responsibility for their actions? Now Obama's team supposedly vetted this guy. So now we need to ask, who signed off on his appointment along the way? What do we know about those people? What is their agenda? Who did the vetting - SEIU? If the FBI did the vetting, how did they miss so much about Van Jones? If they did the vetting, and didn't miss all the Van Jones history, why did Obama appoint him anyway? That's surely a lack of good judgement on his part. Do we want someone who has demonstrated poor judgement to this degree to continue to run our country? Is this the person who should be "leading" the free world? Obama has appointed several people like Van Jones as his "special advisors". He associated with reverend Wright for 20 years. He associated with William Ayers. He is now associating with wacko leftists - communists and socialists. His judgement has been suspect for over 20 years - can he be trusted to uphold the oath he took to serve and protect the Constitution of the United States. Personally, I don't think so. So where are our Senators and Representatives in all this? Where is their outrage? Their silence is a symptom of the disease that has infested Washington. Anyone who is not publicly speaking out about this needs to go - they are not true patriots in my view. Wake Up America!

The Face of Arrogance

Posted by Picasa
Some are outraged by the president's planned address to the nation's kids next week. Does it look like he cares?

And This Is How Obama Remembers 9-11?

Found on GOPUSA Posted By Bobby Eberle On September 3, 2009 at 7:11 am When Michelle Malkin wrote yesterday of the plans by Barack Obama's White House to address school children across the nation and get them "thinking about" Obama, it really struck a nerve with our readers. He and his team have no limits on what they will do or say in order to inject socialist views into the minds of Americans. But, it doesn't stop there. They also have absolutely no respect or appreciation for the American way and the sacrifices American's have made in order to stay free and to promote the American way of life across the globe. Just take the latest effort being pitched at BarackObama.com. Rather than remembering the Americans who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Obama's political team wants you to make phone calls on 9-11 to fight back against "Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists." Many thanks goes out to The Heritage Foundation for casting light on what Obama is doing at his political web site BarackObama.com (which goes by the name "Organizing for America"). After pointing out what Obama and his team were doing, the web page shown below was taken down.

To All Our Military, Past and Present - We'll Look To You, Our Heroes!

I am writing this entry in honor of all the men and women who have bravely and honorably served this nation throughout its great history, but specifically to those who still serve. And I have some tough questions to ask. When you joined whatever your chosen branch of the military is, you took an oath. The oath required that you "solemnly swear (or affirm) that (you) will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that (you) will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that (you) will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over (you), according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help (you) God." First, I find it interesting, especially in these times, that you pledge this oath to God. That, in itself, provides some comfort to those of us who believe in the Constitution, and the Judeo-Christian beliefs that this country was founded upon. But what happens if/when you have to choose between defending the Constitution of the United States and obeying the orders of the President of the United States? What happens if/when the two become incompatible? What will you do? You need to think about that. I hope you will choose country and the Constitution over the President, for the country is more important than any one man. Those of you who have served the country are heroes, plain and simple. Hold fast to your honor and your integrity if it comes to making the hard choice. We are witnessing the American Republic being changed into something that contains facets of fascism, socialism and communism, and will soon resemble something much different than the American Republic as it was created. At some point this 'new' system is going to become incompatible with the ideology conveyed to us through the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. It is inevitable if we stay on our current course. This President, with his rhetoric and his radical progressive agenda, and with this appointment of Communists and Socialists as "special advisors", has set us on a course that in my opinion, over time, will lead us directly to one of three violent conflicts. A race war (which he has fueled), a class war (which he continues to fuel) or an ideological war (in which the radical left revolutionaries have already unleashed the first salvo). In my opinion, if we do not get President Obama out of office soon, or at the very least dramatically influence the direction in which this country is headed through OUR voices, the next President may not have the strength of character or the will to avoid such a conflict. The writing is on the wall... Wake Up America!

An Interesting Article in Australian Shooter Magazine

"If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the past 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers. The firearm death rate in Washington , DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period. That means you are about 25 per cent more likely to be shot and killed in the US capital, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the US , than you are in Iraq . Conclusion: The US should pull out of Washington" Or maybe it would be better if we just sent the troops into Washington! What do you think? Wake Up America!

Five Pledges ALL Congressmen and Women Should Agree With

Glenn Beck developed 5 pledges for our Congressmen to support, they are … 1. I believe in a balanced budget and therefore will vote for a freeze in government spending until that goal is realized. 2. I believe that government should not increase the financial burden on its citizenry during difficult economic times therefore I will oppose all tax increases until our economy has rebounded. 3. I believe that more than four decades of U.S. dependence on foreign oil is a travesty therefore I will support a plan that calls for immediately increasing usage of all domestic resources including nuclear energy, natural gas, and coal as necessary. 4. I believe in the sovereignty and security of our country and therefore will support measures to close our borders except for designated immigration points so we will know who is entering and why and I will vehemently oppose giving another country, the United Nations, or any other entity, power over U.S. citizens. 5. I believe the United States of America is the greatest country on earth and therefore will not apologize for policies or actions which have served to free more and feed more people around the world than any other nation on the planet. Ask your Senators and Representative if they support these 5 items. If they do not, ask them why? If they can explain rationally, I'd love a comment on what they said. If they can't explain, refuse to explain, or can't support ALL five of these, VOTE THEM OUT!!!!! I heard one guy on the radio talking about how he asked his Representative if he would protect and defend the Constitution - a requirement of the Oath of Office he took. The Representative never answered the question. There's a no-brainer for voting someone out of office, wouldn't you agree! Wake Up America!
