Will President Hillary Pardon Herself?

shutterstock_504001402

Although the FBI declared yesterday that Hillary Clinton will not be prosecuted for her crimes involving her reckless handling of classified information, she is still being investigated for public corruption and “pay for play” schemes involving the Clinton Foundation. But what will happen if Hillary becomes the next president of the United States? President Obama will pardon her in order to protect himself from being exposed in her web of lies and deceit or President Hillary will be within her legal rights to pardon herself for all crimes committed since she entered into public life over 30 years ago. She will NEVER be punished for what she has done to this country.

Over the last year the public has been made aware of the “pay for play” scheme that the Clinton Foundation has been and continues to be involved in. This began when Hillary was Secretary of State. In exchange for a hefty donation to the Foundation, Hillary made it possible for Russia to get their hands on 20% of US uranium that is now being sold to Iran. Since the horrible Iranian deal, made by Obama and John Kerry, their number one goal is to destroy western civilization and now, thanks to Hillary, they are on their way. Recently we discovered the Clinton’s paid for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding from donations to the Clinton Foundation. We have all had a front row seat to her willful recklessness in the handling of National Security secrets and classified information. It was recently discovered that Hilary was allowing her maid to print copies of President Obama’s daily CIA briefing and Huma Aberdeen was forwarding classified information to her home computer where her husband, Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, had open access to National Security Secrets and God knows what else, all while he was forwarding perverted texts to an underage child in North Carolina. This sick and twisted web of lies, deceit and willful corruption will continue under the presidency of Hillary Clinton, if she is elected.

The American people have a very important decision to make tomorrow when they go to the polls. Whether or not you are thrilled with either of your choices, you have to look very clearly at each candidate and decide, NOT who offends you the most, but who will FIGHT for the American people. We have seen the Clinton Camp lie and plead the fifth, ad nauseum, throughout the Obama presidency and during her attempt to take the most important office in the United States. The IRS was caught targeting conservatives because of their political beliefs, the Attorney General of the Justice Department was caught by a reporter corroborating with Bill Clinton, while he and Hillary, were both under federal investigation. The mainstream media have been caught red-handed lying to the people, handing over questions to Hillary before debates, asking the Clinton camp what questions they should ask her opponent in the presidential debates. The head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Shultz was fired for rigging the election in Hillary’s favor while throwing Bernie Sanders under the bus and was then immediately hired by the Clinton camp. Add insult to injury, Hillary has pointed the finger at Wall Street while behind closed doors, she has taken millions of dollars in donations from them and has said she would like them to take over the control of our economy. She also wants to grant amnesty to 30-40 million illegals in this country and dreams of completely open borders within the United States. Although we have all seen the devastation occurring in France and Germany at the hands of unvetted refugees, Hillary is determined to open our borders to hundreds of thousands of these same refugees. She will also have the opportunity to appoint up to four new Supreme Court Justices, who she will use to further destroy our rights to the freedom of speech, religion and bearing arms. The lies and corruption have been on clear display for everyone to see and like her predecessor, she has told us exactly what she plans on doing to further fundamentally transform the United States.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump was exposed on a tape using locker room talk and calling out Rosie O’Donnell. His comments were and still remain offensive to most Americans, however, he has not called for an audit on any taxpayers for their support of Hillary Clinton. He has not shared or disclosed confidential information that placed FBI assets in danger or caused them to be killed. He has not sold out the United States to fatten his own wallet. He has been accused of actually following the tax law that was written and put in place by our very own government and is the first candidate who actually made his fortune BEFORE he ran for government office. He has not taken a dime from special interests in this campaign, but has used his own money and donations from United States citizens.

You have to ask yourself one question. Who do you think will use the office of the Presidency to better the country and put the American people first?

Why Has Immigration Become Such a Bone Of Contention And Division?

shutterstock_2657890

Back in 2007, while President Obama was busy campaigning to become the first black president of the United States, the majority of Americans were fully in support of immigration reform, and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Flash forward to 2015 and you will see unbelievable levels of contempt and refusal to accept anything less than mass deportation of all illegals. Why?

When President Obama took the oath of office in January of 2009, the House and the Senate of the United States was controlled by the Democrats. Obama campaigned for the hispanic vote by making multiple promises of, not only, addressing immigration, but permanently fixing the problem. He spoke on the issue March 27, 2008 on the Larry King show.

“[We] have to recognize that we’ve got 12 million undocumented workers who are already here. Many of them living their lives alongside other Americans. Their kids are going to school. Many of the kids, in fact, were born in this country and are citizens. And so, it’s absolutely vital that we bring those families out of the shadows and that we give them the opportunity to travel a pathway to citizenship. It’s not automatic citizenship. It’s not amnesty. They would have to pay a fine. They would have to not have engaged in any criminal activity. They would have to learn English. They would have to go to the back of the line so that they did not get citizenship before those persons who had come here legally.”

However, even with a Democratic majority in the House and the Senate, President Obama did nothing to advance immigration reform. He mocked Republicans for demanding the border fence be secured,  and taunted his opposition by accusations that they would soon be demanding  moats and alligators to protect the borders. All this rhetoric while only 37 miles of the fence on the Southern border was actually secured. All this rhetoric while he stood by and did nothing to address reform in his first 2 years as President. As a result of pushing through Obamacare on Christmas eve, against the wishes of the American people, the Democrats lost their majority in the House.  As we all have seen since, without true leadership, immigration reform hit a permanent brick wall.

Instead of leading the discussion with Congress, President Obama decided to take matters into his own hands. Still promising change to the hispanic community in 2012, ensuring his reinstatement as president for another 4 years, immigration reform was once again stalled.  However, in looking at well documented time lines, most Americans were unaware of the president’s actions to ensure that the immigration laws on the books, were ignored and defied.  Obama, along with Eric Holder, of the Department of Justice, moved forward on suing any state that actually followed the rule of law on deporting illegal immigrants, including criminals. He refused to support E-verify, instead defunding the expansion of the program.  He terminated funding for the virtual fence along the border,  approved millions of dollars in tax credits  be paid to illegals immigrants, and routine border searches were stopped. President Obama drastically reduced the number of national guard at the border from thousands to 130. A 24 hour hotline was established for use by illegals while the president’s budget proposed severe cuts in funding to ICE. In 2012, the president bypassed Congress and unilaterally implemented the Dream Act, and announced the closure of nine border patrol stations, while putting into effect an aggressive campaign to recruit illegal immigrants to sign up for welfare and food stamps. In 2013, the Obama administration released thousands of illegal criminals into communities while advertising for babysitters for the surge of illegals over the border in the summer of 2014. Following the surge, millions of taxpayer dollars were spent on charter planes and buses to place un-vetted illegals into schools and communities across the United States.

Meanwhile as the economy continues to tank,  job creation at an all time low, and against the ruling of a federal judge, Obama passes out work permits to illegals like candy, sanctuary cities protect them while their own citizens are being raped and murdered, and Democrats across the country now pursue the passage of laws that allow illegal immigrants to vote in our local and national elections.

Is there any surprise that, as a result of Obama’s private war on legal immigration, that the majority of the American people are angry and demanding all immigrants be deported? This pendulum effect of emotion has been fueled from the beginning by a President who refused to lead the Congress to common sense reform and as a result has pushed the American people to drastic measures to stop the flow of taxpayer dollars, American jobs and unchecked support for those who have entered our country illegally.

The polarization and division of the American people, created and sustained by the current administration has made the problem worse, now amping up hate and discord for anyone crossing the border illegally.

Those in the hispanic community that continue to support Obama and vote for democrats ( basically and action of cutting off your own nose to spite your face) represents the truest definition of an oxymoran. Actions by President Obama and democrats produce incongruous and self-contradictory results in an issue that requires leadership,  and common sense reform.

The push for the destruction of our current immigration laws has done nothing more than create a bone of contention and division within the American people on Immigration reform.

United States President Surrendering Flag to Our Enemies!

 

shutterstock_40811836

We have watched President Obama honor plenty of fallen Americans, but the majority of them just happen to be crooks, thieves, illegal aliens or followers of Islam!  What happened to honoring our fallen Military? The men and women who fight for our freedoms. What happened to honoring our fallen citizens? The hard-working Americans who have been killed as a result of our own President’s failed policies or his refusal to follow our rule of law?

President Obama wasted no time in shining the rainbow lights on the White House, at taxpayer’s expense, after the Supreme Court ruled on Gay marriage. Yet crosses around the country are being torn down in the name of political correctness and personal feelings.  The confederate flag has been under attack by the left and the administration as a symbol of hatred, yet symbols celebrating Islam have become more prominent, while Islamic terrorists continue to behead, imprison, drown and burn innocents,while setting dogs on fire, raping young girls, threatening to murder gays, Jews and Christians and laughing while they torture and murder babies and children.  Does Islam not represent hatred and disdain for all citizens of the world? Then why does our President continue to celebrate it?

Not more than 24 hours after 4 Marines were slaughtered by an Islamic terrorist, the Empire State building lights up in celebration of an Islamic Holiday celebration. The end of a Holiday that demands a recommitment to Islam. However, Obama refuses to fly our flag at half mast in honor of the five Americans gunned down by an Islamic Terrorist on US soil.

Obama and Michelle did not hesitate to celebrate and announce their good wishes to all Muslims for a happy Ramadan, within hours of the slaughter of our Marines in Tennessee.

“Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual — a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.”

The Administration also actually postponed the celebration of  the United States Independence Day, our fourth of July, in order not to offend Muslims celebrating Ramadan.

Meanwhile on the holiest day of Christians, Obama, at a prayer breakfast,   reminds us of the brutality of Christians during the Crusades and the issuance of Jim Crow laws in the name of Jesus Christ, while suggesting Christians get off their high horse.

While countries around the world are stepping up in the face of Islamic terrorism and taking action against it, our President continues to make excuses for Islam, refuses to identify them as a source of terrorism,  and will not assist our strongest allies in the fight against ISIS/ISIL.

He disrespects our ally, Israel, while supporting the Islamists, who scream death to Israel and America. He has agreed to a deal with Iran to create Nuclear bombs within our lifetimes making the survival of our children and grandchildren questionable at best. While our representatives consider the consequences of this deal, he pushes it through to the United Nations for approval completely disregarding the wishes and fears of the American citizens who he is supposed to protect.

Since the beginning of his term as President, Obama has not only refused to follow our Constitution or enforce our rule of law, he ignores the death of an American Citizen, Kathryn Steinle, killed by an illegal alien who had been deported five different times. And this as well as thousands of other murders committed by illegal felons, while Obama assures us he has secured our sovereignty mocking Republicans who demand more security.

His administration has become a mockery as he attends funerals and speaks out against our police while supporting criminals, baits protesters to burn down their own cities, invites Al Sharpton to participate in advising him on race relations, yet will not take a moment to offer condolences to the family of a young expectant mother murdered as a result of his own failed policies.

Obama has demanded gun control by taking away the rights of many Americans to own guns through back door legislation, while refusing to enforce the gun laws that are already on our books. Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are demanding that Obama and the DOJ actually start enforcing the laws that Congress has already enacted before enacting new ones. Obama has actually prosecuted 25 percent fewer cases referred by the law enforcement agency charged with reducing firearms violence.

We have seen our Ambassador and three other Americans killed in Benghazi because of an arms deal gone wrong. No help was sent obviously to help cover up the fact that this administration and Hillary Clinton’s State Department proffered an arms deal with the very people who murdered our Americans. Add insult to injury, they lied and continue to lie in order to cover up their participation in this tragedy.

Let us not forget “Fast and Furious,” The IRS targeting of conservatives, the punishment of whistle blowers, the continued abuse of our Veterans, the NSA spying, and a long list of other atrocities committed by this administration with no consequences.

President Obama, in many speeches has asked Americans to respect people of all faiths, yet like his narrative regarding “white on black” racism, he refuses to acknowledge the atrocities that are committed by blacks against whites or the barbaric murders and atrocities that are advertised daily through social media by the followers of Islam.

Without a doubt, President Obama has fulfilled his promise to those who continue to follow him blindly, refusing to see the evil he continues to perpetrate on his path to fundamentally changing the United States.

Richard Nixon was impeached for much less. Have our morals, ethics and standards fallen so low today that we cannot even acknowledge evil when it is standing proud and tall on the steps of our White House cloaked in our American Flag?

“Democrats Push Voting Rights For Non-Citizens To Ensure Election Wins!”

imgres

President Obama in a recent interview, admitted that he would pass his agenda items by “hook or by crook.” Was he just waving the green flag to all Democrats to do whatever is necessary to win and in turn, further the liberal agenda? This seems to be the new platform for the Democrats.  If you can’t accomplish it on your own steam and through the proper channels, then lie, cheat, and steal to get it done. By “hook or by crook!”

Mayor Bill DeBlasio, Mayor of New York, has decided the only way he has a chance at gaining a second term in New York, is to allow non-citizens the ability to cast votes in New York elections.  A move that takes the voice away from “The People,” as laid out in our Constitution, and gives it to those who are here as guests in our country.  Add in a growing number of illegal voters casting fraudulent ballots at local and national elections, and the American people will no longer have a say in how we are governed.  As we look at DeBlasio’s first term in office we cannot help but remember back in 2014 when he blocked charter schools,  using space inside failed public school buildings.  He chose to support teachers unions over what was best for the kids of New York. DeBlasio also proposed a law that would end horse-drawn carriages in the city and in turn force 300 drivers from their jobs at a time when the economy was less than optimistic. Add in his termination of the “stop and frisk,” laws and his vocal condemnation of his own police force, during the Michael Brown case, prior to proper investigations and rulings by the court system, and the people of New York were less than pleased. His current odds at winning a second term are not promising. His best path to win the next election seems to be opening up the voting booths to anyone and everyone who might cast a ballot for him and the Democratic party.   We do know the majority of  non-citizens will cast their ballot for a Democrat, because of course, they will never bite the hand that feeds them.

Hillary Clinton, Democrat, who wrote her thesis in college on Saul Allinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, has found herself in yet another pot of hot water over her “deleted” email server used during her entire tenure as Secretary of State.She has no real accomplishments as Secretary of State to speak of, except her “restart” button with Russia, which obviously didn’t work, and the chaos that has been created around the world by her and President Obama’s failed agenda.  She will use her gender as a voting tool, however, she will have to explain why the Clinton Foundation has taken millions of dollars in donations from countries that have allowed the horrible abuses of women. She says she is running on income inequality while she charges $250,000 for speeches at Universities while “demanding crudités, hummus and sliced fruit.” Despite a lifetime career in politics and constant questionable illegal activities, she has decided to throw her hat into the ring for President of the United States in 2016.

It has become a pattern that seems to have gained popularity within the Democratic party. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Deceive. Deflect. Ignore. Do whatever is necessary to keep your job, win a seat, or warp the voting process in your favor. And in the process, pass legislation that will allow all non-citizens as well as illegals to cast their ballot in the next election so they can vote for Democrats.

The bill proposed in New York that will allow non-citizens to vote in local elections that has also found its way to Washington, DC,  The Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2015.  As reported in the weekly Standard,

“If the bill passes, it would not make D.C. the first to have allowed non-citizens to vote in local elections. Currently, half a dozen towns or jurisdictions in Maryland, including Takoma Park, allow the practice, while Chicago allows all (presumably legal) residents to vote in school board elections. In much the same vein, non-citizens in California now have the right to act as poll monitors, to practice law (even if an illegal alien), and also to serve on juries.”

Last summer the United States saw an unprecedented “rush” on our southern borders.  The Obama administration’s pattern of hindering our current deportation laws, has layed out the red carpet for illegals to freely enter into the United States.  The majority of these illegals, who crossed the border were not deported, but transported via plane and charter bus, at taxpayer’s expense, throughout communities within the country. They were then given roofs over their heads, food, healthcare, and then placed within public schools without vaccinations, putting American citizens at risk. They have been offered driver’s licenses, and the right to work within the country without fear of deportation. Illegals are now even protesting without fear of retribution demanding even more money, more rights and more services. Current reports are already predicting a repeat of another surge this coming summer. When will it stop? Never, as long as Democrats rule the roost.

What has been done by this administration since 2008 to correct the problems at the border?  Nothing. With endless open borders, and public services offered up like al a carte menus to illegals within the country as well as those looking to come in the future, the taxpayers will not only be looking to forego more hard-earned dollars, but their constitutional right to choose our leaders. Even the IRS has gotten in on the ruse by offering billions of dollars in tax credits to illegals that have never even worked.

There has recently been a growing pushback from Americans fighting the influx of foreign workers via the H1-B visa program. Companies are ousting American workers to fill  jobs with cheaper, lower level workers currently held by more expensive American workers. The Obama administration is pushing to allow nearly 100,000 spouses of foreign workers in high-tech jobs and want to further ease restrictions  making it easier to import high skilled workers from foreign countries. These policies will further hinder the job market for American citizens. President Obama and Democrats have decided to cater to anyone and everyone except Americans. It seems as though they have forgotten their place and the people they have been elected to serve.

It is time to bring back simple common sense and logic to our country. It is time to put Americans first!

Meanwhile back on the Homefront……Crooks, Fraud, Liars and Thieves!

shutterstock_146004131 (1)

 

While the news has taken flight over the entire Iran nuclear arms disaster and Obama’s petulant tantrums regarding Bibi Netanyahu, the public’s attention has been pulled away from the continued fraud and deceit going on around us here on the Homefront, directly under our noses!

Ever since Obama took office, we have woken up every morning to a new scandal, a new lie, new corruption and the audacity of this government to, not only, allow it to happen, but encourage it, hire it, give it power, and refuse to fire it or punish it. Meanwhile this same government continues to put the American people under a microscope and demand we follow the very rules they refuse to acknowledge or follow themselves.

Although the majority of the public seems to be outraged at the continued bad behavior of our president, vice president, secretary of state, attorney general, and a host of other “political” appointees and politicians, they  continue to vote them into office.  As the scandals continue to break, and we discover that our tax dollars have been wasted and spent haphazardly, and those we elected are never held accountable, they wonder why. It is time to hold our elected and appointed political officials responsible for their bad behavior and demand that they pay the same price Americans are expected to pay when they break the law. We can no longer look the other way while our government is inundated with crooks, frauds  liars and thieves.

Just this morning alone, we were told of a scandal that came up during the Virginia Governor’s race which the citizens of Virginia decided to ignore. Despite multiple investigations going on for fraudulent behavior, Terry McAuliffe was elected Governor of Virginia. Now, the same scandal is raising its ugly head again! What ever happened to it in the first place? How can the American people allow our governing officials to get caught breaking the law and then allow it to quietly be swept under the rug and forgotten because of an election?  Scandal after scandal after scandal…that’s how.  If you get caught, just find something worse and the first act of deceit will be forgotten until the scandals and the lies have become mainstream and the “rule” instead of the “exception.” The next thing you know, it is out of control and the seemingly only way to deal with all the crooks, fraud, liars and thieves is to fire everyone in government and start over. Yet we know this will never happen, so we are forced to suffer the consequences of being ruled by crooks, fraud, liars and thieves.

So what deceit by government has raised its ugly head today?

  • Deceit number 1– Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, was appointed by Obama even though he was under investigation for other immigration decisions that might have been against the law.
  • Deceit number 2. The Obama appointee, Mayorkas,  caves to pressure from Hillary Clinton, Terry McAuliffe,  Harry Reid and Edward G. Rendell and decides to approve immigration applications from wealthy foreigners that were directly connected to these top government officials. Approvals that go against the very  laws he was appointed to protect and enforce.
  • Deceit number 3.  Mayorkas then proceeds to approve applications for these individuals that have huge effects on the outcome of events that otherwise would have ended differently.
  • Deceit number 4.  Mayorkas files a rebuttal saying he was only trying to fix a bad immigration policy on his own.
  • Deceit number 5.  Approved visas numbered 1,000 a year and under Obama have grown to 11,000 per year, yet no one thinks this is unusual?
  • Deceit number 6. Whistleblowers at all levels came forward to file complaints and are seemingly ignored or punished.
  • Deceit number 7.  Mayorkas denies dealing with McAuliffe, Rendall and Reid, yet the records show he did.
  • Deceit number 8.  When McAuliffe and others are approached, they refuse to speak to investigators.
  • Deceit number 9.  The investigators then find problems with HSA records retention as we have  seen with the IRS, the EPA, and Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
  • Deceit number 10.  When it is demanded that Obama and Holder punish the  Deputy HSA official,  the powers at be say ‘No,” because Mayorkas is really “honest and patriotic.”
  • Deceit number 11.  The same officials are elected into office.

Do you see a pattern here? This happens day after day. Scandal after scandal.  Time and time again, we see reports of crooks, fraud, liars and thieves, yet they are elected into office again, disgrace themselves and the office they hold, refuse to hold themselves accountable, and are once again voted right back into office.

Could it be that our choices are limited? So many good and honest people refuse to even think about running for office because they know that the mainstream media will lie and distort the truth.  A biased, opinionated press who will do anything to protect the left-wing liberal agenda, including ruining the lives and destroying the reputations of anyone who dare challenge them or their Commander and Chief, Obama.

Take the example of  Ted Cruz announcing his candidacy for President. Like him or not, support him or not,  is it appropriate for the press, who is supposed to inform the electorate, to destroy him with their personal political feelings within hours of his announcement? Is this what we have come to under the influence of the  left-wing, liberal policies and behavior?  The very agenda that denounces intolerance, yet continues to promote the very hate and intolerance of others they claim to denounce? The very behavior that is being taught in our education system, ensuring the demise of the very freedoms and liberties this country was founded on. An agenda of hate for the United States and the very people that have given their lives in order to offer us these freedoms? Is this the future of the United States of America?

Isn’t it time for the American people to demand change? No more intolerance and personal political agendas in the press. No more crooks, fraud, liars and thieves allowed in government office. It is time for those who break the laws and trust of the American people to be held accountable for their criminal actions and forced to suffer the consequences of their actions as “we the people” are expected to do!

I’m Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore!

 

 

iStock_000010295104_Small“The president has far exceeded his constitutional authority. … We all want to do things to stop the president from his illicit activity.” – House Speaker John Boehner

“It is time to allow this Homeland Security funding measure to come to the floor. This is our colleagues’ chance to do exactly what they led their constituents to believe they’d do: defend the rule of law, without more excuses.” – Mitch McConnell

“It’s important for people who agree with us that the president doesn’t have this ability to put illegal immigration laws in place executively.” – Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the House GOP whip.

“The president chose to use an authority that he said 22 separate times he didn’t have the authority to do.” – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Each of these representatives voted today to fully fund the DHS and President Obama’s unconstitutional, illegal amnesty.  Each of them promised voters in November that they would not allow Obama to get away with passing illegal amnesty with his pen and phone.  They lied!

How many times will voters allow this to continue? When is the lying going to stop? Why are politicians allowed to use “bait and switch” and get away with it?

The Republicans that voted to pass this legislation are as bad as President Obama and need to be taken out of office.  What makes them any different from Obama?  Frankly they are worse. Why?  At least we all know Obama planned on “fundamentally changing” America. He admitted it and was voted into office anyway.  He has constantly told us over and over of his intentions. He promised to use his pen and phone to pass laws that he wants passed, regardless of the system of government our Republic demands.  At least he told the truth. They lied!

Republicans have lied and lied over and over again to their constituents. They promise to stand up to Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional executive orders, yet again and again they cave. They lied to get into office and then do exactly what Obama and Democrats tell them to do.

What are the people to do when their elected officials refuse to carry out their wishes? What should the people do when the government takes control of every aspect of our lives, against our will? What should the people do when the government of the people, by the people, for the people becomes of the government, by the government, for the government? When our voices and our votes no longer matter, what are we to do?

It is time to stand up and say enough!!! The 2016 Presidential election is around the corner. At this point, it seems our choices will once again be a  Clinton or a Bush. AGAIN!  The establishment has taken over our lives and forgotten their place.  They are elected by us, paid by us, and yet they have chosen to believe that we are their pawns to move around as they please. They do this all while stealing our hard-earned dollars, destroying the American dream, empowering illegals by forcing us to pay their way and allowing them a vote that will eventually move Americans right out of our own country!

They barely work, yet complain that there $174,000 salaries along with their ill-gotten millions through insider trading, isn’t enough to fund their multimillion dollar homes, jets and vacations, all while telling the American people that “income inequality” is our problem.  They claim we are “racists” and “bigots” all while they fuel the “divide and conquer” mentality. They point the finger of blame at each other while behind closed doors they make secret deals going against the very wishes of the American people. They take away our rights to our own property, take our jobs and give them to immigrants, refuse to seal our borders, expose us to terrorism by refusing to fight it or call it by name. They take control of our air and water and call if conservation. They tell us what we can eat and what we can drink because we don’t know any better. They take over our healthcare, charge us more, reduce the services, and require us to pick up the tab for those who don’t want to work. They take away our full-time jobs and replace them with part-time, under-employment and call it recovery. They take over our internet, saying they will protect us from the big, bad internet companies. They spy on us through our phones, our televisions, and our computers and call it protection,  they decide what news we watch by allowing one political faction to control the media, and threaten anyone who stands against them.  They use the IRS to punish any American who tries to enact change. They pledge allegiance to the United States and our flag, promise to uphold our Constitution and protect the American people, yet defy those pledges on a daily basis.

They criticize Russia because Putin has remained in control  for over 24 years, but the Clintons and the Bushes have controlled the Presidency for over 24 years and after the 2016 election, probably another 8, meaning only 2 families will have controlled our country for over 32 years.  When is it enough? When is it time to tell the establishment to go to hell?

We, the American people need to let our government know we will no longer accept the status quo! It is time to elect a President that does not represent Republicans or Democrats. It is time to rid ourselves of the two party system. It is time to elect an American who believes in the Constitution, the American Dream and the rule of law!

It is time to stop putting career politicians and lawyers into office.  No more criminals allowed in office. If you don’t pay your taxes, you’re fired! If you don’t do your job, you’re fired! If you take a bribe, you’re fired! If you lie to get elected, you’re fired!

It is time to do what our founding fathers meant for us to do. Everyday, hard-working Americans should represent our country for a short period of time, then go back to their jobs and their lives. Only then will the people’s voice be heard!  It is time for term limits, a balanced budget, and common sense.  No more Department of Education, no more Department of Human Resources, no more IRS, no more Federal Reserve Bank, no more Energy Department, no more stealing, cheating, fraud, and NO MORE LIES!!!

Obama and Occam’s Razor

shutterstock_178474667

Occam’s Razor?  A problem solving principle devised by William of Ockham, a logician in the 14th century and is still used today.  In its simplest form, it states,

“When you have competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”

Now, lets ask the questions,

  • Why would Obama continue to release dangerous terrorist prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, when the world is at war with Islamic terrorism?

 

  • Why Does President Obama and his administration refuse to call the attacks by terrorists, Islamic terrorism?

 

  • Why would President Obama tell the world, “the future does not belong to those who slander Mohammed?”

 

  • Why would President Obama refuse to secure our borders when terrorists are able to easily enter the U.S from our Southern border?

 

  • Why, in this atmosphere of Islamic terrorism, would President Obama actually increase the number of visas offered to Muslim countries? Visas that once offered are not tracked, allowing applicants to settle in our country undetected?

 

  • Why are known members of terrorist organizations allowed to keep their United States passports?

 

  • Why does President Obama continue to ignore the dangerous tactical and ideological convergence between the Islamic State terrorists and Boko Haram?

 

  • Why has President Obama continued to support the false narrative that al Qaeda has been decimated while they have claimed responsibility for the recent massacre in France?

 

  • Why would President Obama, a self-proclaimed Christian claim, in a perfect Arabic accent, that the “Islamic Call to prayer at sunset is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth?”

 

  • Why would President Obama bow to King Abdullah, a Muslim, yet not to Queen Elizabeth, a Christian?

 

  • Why does President Obama seem so intent on criticizing Netanyahu and Israel?

 

Let’s look at some facts regarding Barrack Obama’s past connections.

  • Obama’s grandfather, Hussin Onyango Obama (1895-1979) was a Muslim.
  • Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr. identified himself as a Muslim, but spent much of his adult life as an atheist.
  • Obama’s stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, from Indonesia, practiced a form of Islam.
  • Obama worked on the Developing Communities Project which was an organization based on tradition of Marxist Saul Alinsky.
  • Obama had a fundraiser hosted by Bill Ayers who was part of the “Weather Underground,” labeled a domestic terrorist group by the FBI.
  • Obama’s role model, Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) was a communist.
  • Obama attended the church of Jeremiah Wright for 20 years.
  • Reverend Wright said, the U.S. could not accept a black man as president of  “this racist United States of America,” “the United States of White America,” and “the U.S. of KKK-A.  *
  • Winfrey, who joined Wright’s church in the mid-’80s, eventually left in the early ’90s. An article entitled “Something Wasn’t Wright” in the May 12, 2008, issue of Newsweek explains that she knew Wright’s rants were too radical for her fans. Interestingly, though Oprah endorsed Obama and helped catapult his books to the top of the bestseller lists, she has declined to endorse him for 2012.*
  • Obama never explicitly rejected the black power, anti-capitalist core of Wright’s teachings. That includes beliefs like Wright’s credo that “White folks’ greed runs the world in need.” For all Obama’s talk, he can’t claim to never have heard Wright say it. Obama titled his second book, The Audacity of Hope, after the very sermon where that line appears.*
  • Candidate Obama’s declared intention to “spread the wealth around” echoed what he had absorbed at those Trinity sermons. Now President Obama’s thinking clearly shows the same imprint, as when he preaches that “at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”*
  • Hillary Clinton–not John McCain– used Wright as a campaign issue against Obama.*
  • Obama’s second book, The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts of Reclaiming the American Dream’s title was derived from a sermon by Obama’s former pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama often mentioned the black sociologist Chancellor Williams’s jeremiad, The Destruction of Black Civilization, which argues that African civilization was destroyed by the acquisitiveness–the capitalist nature–of white European civilization. *
  • Obama and wife Michelle were married in a ceremony in 1992 presided over by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama’s daughters, Malia Ann and Natasha were baptised by Reverend Jeremiah Wright.*
  • Obama had a close relationship with Columbia professor Rashid Khalidi, who previously worked for the PLO, classified as a terrorist group by the State Department.
  • Another Obama mentor, Tony Rexko is now serving a 10 year federal prison sentence on convictions of fraud and bribery.
  • Rexko and his Arab-American business associates donated hundreds of thousands of dollars too Obama’s campaign.
  • Khalid al-Mansour, an activist and outspoken enemy of Israel, was the key backer for Obama and his acceptance into Harvard. At the time he recommended Obama to Harvard, al-Mansour was representing top members of the Saudi Royal family seeking to exert influence in the United States. He was also advising Prince Alwaleed, the nephew of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who offered $10 million to rebuild Manhattan after 9/11.  Mayor Giuliani refused the money because Alwaleed made public statements saying U.S. policies contributed to the 9/11 attack.
  • Sen. John McCain publicly chastised The Los Angeles Times  for not releasing a videotape the newspaper said it possessed of a 2003 dinner for Khalidi, where Obama reportedly accused Israel of carrying out a “genocide” against the Palestinians.
  • Obama had close ties with Louis Farrakhan, top deputy of the Nation of Islam. In Farrakhan’s own words, he said of Obama, “we had an open line between us to discuss policy and strategy either directly or through intermediaries.” 
  • Farrakhan has called Jews “bloodsuckers,” “satanic” and accused them of running the slave trade. He has labeled gays as “degenerates.” In a 2006 speech, the ADL again condemned Farrakhan when he said: “These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews the false Jews that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s wicked Jews, false Jews that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!”
  • Barrack and Michelle Obama attended several dinners of the AAAN (Arab American Action Network), whose Executive director was Hatem Abudayyeh. Hatem is on the White House logs attending policy briefings and his home was later raided by the FBI for ties to funding the Liberation of Palestine and other Middle Eastern terrorist groups.
  • George Soros a Liberal Democratic billionaire donated over $1 million dollars to Obama’s campaign for President and it was recently discovered that he also gave over $33 million to fund the protestors and looters in Ferguson, MO.

Is any of this starting to concern you?  Are any of President Obama’s connections starting to answer the questions posed above?  If not, they should.

If we were to apply Occam’s Razor theory to the questions asked and the connections Obama has in his life, the simplest answer would be that Barrack Obama is actually a Muslim and has no love for the United States and the free enterprise system or our Constitution.

The scariest fact here? All of these connections were well-known before 52% of Americans voted for Barack Obama!

Republicans and Democrats…A Choice Between Two Evils!

VoteBoth the Congress and the Senate passed a 2015 spending bill, in record time, that has been labeled a “Cromnibus.”  But where was the fight? Where were our representatives who swore they would not fund amnesty, Obamacare, taxpayer-funded abortion, and more irresponsible spending? No where to be seen!

About Obama’s illegal amnesty,

“We are going to fight the president tooth and nail if he continues down this path. This is the wrong way to govern. This is exactly what the American people said on Election Day they didn’t want.” – John Boehner

About the passage of Obamacare,

“And look at how this bill was written,”  “Can you say it was done openly, with transparency and accountability? Without backroom deals and struck behind closed doors hidden from the people? Hell, no, you can’t.” – John Boehner

“When we came here, we each swore an oath to uphold and abide by the Constitution as representatives of the people.” “But the process here is broken. The institution is broken. And as a result, this bill is not what the American people need nor what our constituents want.” – John Boehner

These are the exact words John Boehner spoke as recently as November, 2014, in reply to President Obama’s announcement to offer amnesty to millions of  illegals inside the United States and the passage of Obamacare, both bills, openly rejected by the American people.

So how did the Republican leader decide to fight President Obama on amnesty, Obamacare, abortion and spending? By giving the Department of Health and Human Services’s unaccompanied children’s program an $80 million increase. He also offered up an additional $14 million to school districts stuggling with the influx of illegal students. Add insult to injury…he has also agreed to give an additional $260 million to the Central American countries from where the illegals are coming. Obamacare was, once again, fully funded, along with Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of taxpayer-funded abortions, and the House signed off on increasing the amount wealthy donors can throw into the political arena, increasing the current cap of $32,400 to $777,600 per person per year.  Frank Dodd regulations have been rolled back allowing banks to participate in the same derivatives trading which exacerbated the financial crisis in 2008, and the real clincher? The bill calls for more spending then what the government anticipates bringing in, resulting in yet another year of increased debt, which has now surpassed the $18 trillion mark, representing a 70% increase in our national debt since Obama took office.

I think New York Post’s Kyle Smith hit the nail on the head when he said,

“2014 was the year when the truth was optional. 2014 was the year when convenient fabrication was the weapon of choice for celebrities, activists, big business and politicians.” 

In November of this year, we had a midterm election that trumped most others. The GOP swept the country by extending their majority to near historic levels, speaking loud and clear to President Obama, “enough is enough”!!! The American people said they did not like Obamacare and were not happy about our open borders and the surge of illegals allowed to enter into our country and take part in our taxpayer-funded services. The American people are no longer interested in bailing out anyone…especially the banks that caused the financial crisis in the first place, we do not want to pay for others abortions and we want the budget balanced, and for good measure, let’s throw in term limits. But is that what the American taxpayer got?

Even President Obama jumped on the bandwagon supporting the spending bill….what could this mean? Since when has the president ever agreed with the GOP? If he is signing off on this budget deal with no fight, then the American people are obviously the losers!

Lawmakers, led hand in hand by Boehner and Reid, signed off on a 1,603 page bill that Rollcall.com said,

“If members averaged 200 words per minute to read the dense legislative text, they would need 24 hours just to get through the bill.”

Joseph Curl from the Washington Times said,

“When House Speaker John Boehner campaigned for the leadership job years ago, he vowed to give members at least 72 hours to read any bill before a vote. Back in 2010 the speaker said he didn’t think ‘having 2000 page bills on the House floor serves anyone’s best interest – not the House, not for the members and certainly not for the American people.'”

I guess the massive 2,700 page, insurance canceling, $2.6 trillion budget draining,  Obamacare, “have to pass it to see what’s in it” bill, taught them no lessons. When will our representatives start studying history and learning from past mistakes? When will they stand up for the rule of law? When will they stand up and defend our Constitution? When will they say what they mean and do what they say?

If, in fact, the president’s actions on immigration are against the Constitution and the rule of law, then why would the GOP cave in on the budget negotiations and actually allow them to be funded? Even though the money only supports the illegal amnesty until February of 2015, doesn’t the vote itself validate the president’s illegal executive action?

Senator Ted Cruz took a stand on that issue and tried to fund the government for additional days allowing the House to reconvene on Monday to further discuss the bill.  Cruz lost the support of  most Republicans and Democrats, but he did get the vote on record for anyone wanting to know who supported the funding of Obama’s amnesty without a fight. It puts all politicians on record for supporting the bills that the American people do not support.

Even Democrat, Jim Moran said.

“Democrats got virtually everything they wanted in the bill. In twenty years of being on the appropriations committee, I haven’t seen a better compromise in terms of Democratic priorities.” 

When did lies become the new truth? When did misrepresenting, misinforming, misguiding, deceiving, defrauding, misdirecting and betraying the American people become the norm? I know absolute power corrupts absolutely, but it has definitely reached a new high. Add in the press, who refuses to truthfully inform the American people as to the real actions of our government, the real state of the economy and the job market, and we have the perfect storm brewing!

Once again, in words from Boehner  in 2010,

“Around this chamber, looking upon us are the lawgivers from Moses, to Gaius, to Blackstone, to Thomas Jefferson. By our actions today, we disgrace their values. We break the ties of history in this chamber. We break our trust with America.”

As Americans, it is hard to resolve the feelings of betrayal and even harder to come to terms with an election that all our politicians felt had nothing to do with them or their actions. It is hard to reconcile that our choices at the ballot box have come down to choosing between the best of two evils. When the depth of corruption, deceit and red tape bureaucracy reach such  astronomical levels, it is time for a complete overhaul! Fire them all!!

The American People Have Spoken!!

shutterstock_167167265

Election day has come and gone, and sanity has been restored to the country……I think!

The Republicans must hit the ground running in January and begin the process of voting on the 352 bills that have been gathering dust on Harry Reid’s desk all year. Although the president has been referring to the “do-nothing Congress,” it has been confirmed that there are 352 bills awaiting action by the Senate, led by Harry Reid. The Congress passed 352 bills; 98% passed with bipartisan support, 50% passed unanimously, 70% passed with two-thirds support of the House, and over 55 bills were introduced by Democrats. Is the do-nothing Senate the reason Republicans swept the elections?

Unfortunately the public must now sit through the never-ending speculation and analysis by the press while they evaluate and try to make sense of the Republican wave that swept through the country on November 4th. In the exit polls, CNN says only two in ten voters trust the government in Washington to do what’s right, half of voters expect life for the next generation of Americans to be worse, seven in ten voters say the nations’ economy is in bad shape and are concerned about the direction it is headed over the coming year, and more Americans say they voted to show opposition to Obama than support for him, and the country is equally disgusted with Democrats and Republicans.  From where I sit, it seems pretty elementary…. the American people are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore! It’s  time to get down to business! Release the chokehold on the economy, de-regulate small business, sign off on the keystone pipeline, secure our borders, enact sensible immigration reform, hold government officials accountable, get rid of Obamacare, quit polarizing the public and get the people off the dole and back to work. The paid vacation is over!

President Obama has been saying that he wants change, so lets finally see if he is telling the truth! When and if the House passes the keystone pipeline project, will Obama sign off? When and if the House secures the border and passes common sense immigration reform, will Obama sign off? When and if the House makes the necessary changes needed to get the country back on its feet, will we all finally see where President Obama really stands?

The next two years should set the stage, one way or another, for the 2016 presidential election. The next two years will determine whether a Democrat or a Republican will take the Executive branch.  Both parties need to understand that the American people are fed up and tired of seeing our hard-earned dollars wasted by a government that seems to care less about what we want or need. The party that stands up and takes action will be the party that gets the support of the American people in the next election, Republican, Democrat, Independent or Libertarian! We want action….no more political maneuvering, no more lies, no more self-serving agendas!! Just do the job you were elected to do, and remember the people are watching and our patience is gone!

Votes? Inherent Value or a Political Means to an End?

vote-fraud

 

With midterm elections around the corner,  we have to ask ourselves if our voting system should be about the inherent value of our votes, or simply about winning elections?

Currently,  voter ID laws are the object of fights around the country in a game played out by politicians wanting to broaden their base and win elections.  Unfortunately, the only losers in this game are the American people.

When you are a citizen of the United States, born or naturalized, you are blessed with the opportunity and the right to cast your vote for a representative of your choice. Along with the vote comes great power and  responsibility. You, the individual voter, has the power to grant a politician, of your choice, the responsibility to govern our states and our country with integrity, based on the rule of law and our  constitution, framed by the morals and ethics which have guided this country for generations.

We MUST protect and preserve the integrity of our voting system.  If we allow the system to become corrupt, or to be manipulated then we will see our way of life fundamentally transformed and/or destroyed by the few who have become so powerful that they are willing to do anything, including ignoring and encouraging voter fraud, to hold onto that power.

Since the 2012 elections, there have been hundreds of people and/or groups charged, investigated and convicted of voter fraud. Many involving our government officials.  In a recent news story, it was reported that a Connecticut Democrat Representative, Christina Ayala was arrested on 19 charges of voter fraud. If we cannot trust our elected officials to maintain the integrity of our voting system, then who are we to trust?

Although Democrats continue to claim there is no such thing as voter fraud,  the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES) found,

 “Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.”

In looking at a small sample of voter fraud headlines, you may tend to disagree with Democrats’ claims,

  • A Shorewood man was charged with 143 counts of voter fraud.
  •  Three women were arrested and charged with 56 counts of voter fraud, in Houston.
  •  A California Senator gets jail time in Voter Fraud Case.
  •  Over 140 cases of Voter Registration Fraud found in Minneapolis.
  •  Over 80 Voter fraud cases sent to Iowa prosecutors.
  • Ex-magistrate in West Virginia 4th official to plead guilty to voter fraud
  •  Woman uses 5 absentee ballots in voter fraud case in Texas.
  •  Cincinnati poll worker sentenced to 5 years for voter fraud in 3 presidential elections.
  •  FEMA official charged in Florida voter fraud
  •  State Representative and Democratic Party worker sentenced to 18 months for 20 counts of voter fraud
  •  Former MA lawmaker convicted of Voter Fraud Scheme
  •  New York Assemblymen uses voter fraud for gaining power.
  •  Over 500 non-citizens removed from Colorado Voter rolls
  •  Voter fraud found in Vernon, CA election – could change winner
  •  10 NDSU football players plead guilty to voter fraud.
  •  Kentucky voter fraud allegedly funded by drug money
  •  State sweep finds 1,251 non citizens voted in Florida

We have also seen alleged cases of fraud involving the stuffing of ballot boxes, non officials allowed to  transport ballots, voters using absentee ballots of friends, neighbors and even dead family members to cast more than one vote, double registration within 2 or more states, and illegal immigrants registering and casting ballots in elections.

Recently, in North Carolina, when SBOE officials did a sample cross check of their database, they discovered 6% or 600 non-U.S. citizens were registered to vote.  Jay DeLancy, executive director of the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina, said

“We want to know how such a large number of non-U.S. citizens were ever registered to vote in the first place. There is clearly a system failure here and we need the Board of Elections and the DMV to help the Legislature and the public understand where the problem lies.”

So, if voter fraud is alive and well, why would any reasonable person or official, elected to uphold the law of our land, fight against a process that ensures the very integrity of the voting booth? Why are our elected officials refusing to acknowledge and repair the issues at hand within our voting system?  Why would Democratic representatives across the country be fighting to give immigrants who entered our country illegally, the right to vote?

In 2012, election officials from more than 60 countries traveled to the United States to observe the presidential elections as part of a program run by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems. (IFES).  The majority of the officials agreed that the open voting system used in the United States, would never work, or be allowed in their countries. They felt the lack of IDs along with online and mail-in voting, allowed for too much fraud. They were also surprised that provisional ballots were even offered and shocked that local poll workers were allowed to “handle” the ballots.

The majority of countries around the world, take their election process extremely seriously. Most require IDs along with voter confirmation notices in order for a ballot to be cast.   Many countries mark voters with indelible ink to insure that each citizen casts only one vote. Why, would the most powerful, and once, the most influential nation in the world not take steps to ensure the integrity of our election process?

In a recent decision by the Supreme Court on voting restrictions in Texas, Justice Stevens noted that there was sufficient evidence of voter fraud,

“It remains true, however, that flagrant examples of such fraud in other parts of the country have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists, that examples have surfaced in recent years, demonstrate that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election.”

However, in the United States, although photo ID’s are required in order to complete the most menial of tasks on a daily basis, it is not required in all states in order to perform the most sacred action entrusted to every citizen of our nation; voting.

There have also been many reports of voting machine errors. Representative Jim Moynihan of Illinois,  said his vote was changed when he cast his ballot.

“While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent. You can imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

In a similar situation, where a selection was changed three times by the voting machine, I contacted the State Board of Elections, who responded by saying,

“Apparently there was an issue in which one candidate was selected and the screen selected another. We regret that this happened. The sensors in the touch screens occasionally need to be calibrated so the area touched on the screen reflects the voter’s choice.”

If this is a situation that has occurred on other occasions, why are these machines not calibrated prior to election day? If these machines can, in any way, change, alter or switch a voters selection, without their knowledge, then why are they even used?

In testing the EDGE voting machines used in Virginia, researchers found “significant security weaknesses throughout the system.”The nature of these weaknesses raise serious questions as to whether the software can be relied upon to protect the integrity of elections, and lack reliable measures to detect or prevent tampering.” (https://www.verifiedvoting.org/resources/voting-equipment/sequoia/avc-edge/)

If there is even the slightest chance that a vote can be altered, or that a non-citizen can cast a ballot, then  the public at large and our elected officials should  be working together to validate our voting system. You must ask  yourself the question,

“Why would one political faction be so determined to expose our voting system to fraud, by allowing anyone, citizen or not, ID or not, to participate in the selection of our elected officials? “

In this day and age of such political polarization, and a time when the media and our elected officials refuse to listen to the voice of the people,  we should all be concerned about the loss of the only voice that we have left, OUR VOTE!   When we lose our voice in the voting booth, the very foundation of our Nation will exist no more.
