White Privilege And Racism Or Political Privilege And Corruption?

shutterstock_226795639

As long as there are humans on this earth, there will be racism and discrimination. But don’t let our politicians fool you into believing it only happens to blacks fueled strictly by whites. Racism is not a one way street. It is committed and experienced by all. We have reached a turning point in our society where our political leaders are no longer setting an example for better behavior and tolerance or even cheering for the progress we have already made, but are fueling polarization and divisiveness, through political privilege and corruption.

Do you remember a time, only a few years ago,  when it didn’t matter to the majority of Americans who you were, what color you were, where you came from and what religion you practiced as long as we were all allowed the same liberties? Today, the political elite and corrupt have grown in power by fostering an environment that has pitted us against each other based on race, religious beliefs, gender, sexual preference and political affiliation.

Do black lives matter? Of course they do. All lives matter. However, the political elite and corrupt will have you believe that racism is not only alive and well within the United States, but that it is a purposeful cancer that no longer has a cure but has metastasized and must be stopped by literally blaming and removing all whites from our sight. The political elite and corrupt have chosen not to turn the other cheek, but to turn the other way while villages are burned and pillaged in the name of racial justice.

Is the United States a nation that welcomes all who wish to practice the religion of their choice freely and without retribution? Yes it is, however, the political elite and corrupt fuel the distrust of the Islamic religion by refusing to name, or fight a radical Islamic army who screams for our death. A President who choses to visit a mosque that supports terrorism and extremism while ignoring the mosques of the very Muslims he claims to protect that have chosen to practice their faith in a peaceful manner. The political elite and corrupt who have chosen to fuel the hate and distrust of the Muslim community while claiming to foster an environment of inclusion and trust. The political elite and corrupt who demand that the very religion upon which this nation was founded, stop publicly displaying and sharing their beliefs within our communities and schools for fear of offending, while promoting diversity through forced Islamic indoctrination and acceptance of a religious doctrine that goes against our very core beliefs. They no longer support the constitution that gives us the right to freely worship the religion of our choosing, but have chosen to pit us against each other, which further fuels the discrimination and hate speech they promise to punish.

The political elite and corrupt claim inequality and the demise of the middle class lays at the feet of a greedy corporate America,  yet have they actually destroyed the free market system by over-regulating, supporting special interests and lobbyists by taking their bribes, and bailing out the corrupt corporations who they have allowed to become to big to fail? Is it the political elite and corrupt who demonize the top one percent and promise to make them pay their fair share, when they actually already pay over 85% of all taxes? Is it the political elite and corrupt who promise to take down the corruption of large corporations while under the table take their cash in exchange for the very political favors that make them too big to fail?

Do the American people support Immigration? Of course they do. However the political elite and corrupt would have the masses believe that we are all bigots and racists because our citizens expect all who come here to support, believe in and respect our flag and the American way. They demonize any American citizen who insists Immigration go hand in hand with the protection of our sovereignty, our economic success, our continued cultural beliefs and rights to liberty without the threat of our individual or collective demise.

It was Teddy Roosevelt who said,

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American .”

“We must in every way possible encourage the immigrant to rise, help him up, give him a chance to help himself. If we try to carry him he may well prove not well worth carrying. We must in turn insist upon his showing the same standard of fealty to this country and to join with us in raising the level of our common American citizenship.” 

In this day and age,  the political elite and corrupt have blatantly ignored our immigration laws, opened our borders and forced the American people to pick up the tab for those who come illegally. They offer them homes, education and healthcare,  while denying these same basic needs to our Veterans, our true American heroes,  who have fought and died to support the freedoms we all enjoy. The political elite and corrupt accuse us of being unwelcoming and discriminatory while they fight to allow non citizens to pack our voting booths, diminishing our voices and ensuring their own continued lush lives on the Hill, funded by the very citizens they promised to protect.

The political elite and corrupt have created an environment of polarization and divisiveness because it allows them to take control of a chaotic situation of their own creation. When the United States citizens, regardless of political affiliation,  cheer for those who purposefully deceive us and are committed to fundamentally changing our way of life, while bowing to those who wish us harm, then the American people have lost their way. We the American people, from all races and ethnicities, must stand together as one and recognize that instead of fighting each other we must commit to pointing the finger of blame at those who are truly our enemy….the political elite and corrupt inside our own government.

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?

One Bad Apple Destroys the Whole Bushel!

Apple-of-my-eye-300x209

 

Eleven teachers in Atlanta have been convicted for the largest cheating scandal in the nation’s history. So what does this tell us? ALL teachers are cheaters!

A Northwestern University professor violated the sexual harassment code by getting a student drunk then kissing her and groping her while she blacked out. What does this tell us? ALL university and college professors are sexual predators!

A  Florida insurance agent, was found guilty of racketeering and money laundering. What does this tell us? ALL insurance agents are crooks!

Does this sound like a fair assessment of each of these professions? Isn’t it true, based on the current “Hands up, Don’t Shoot,” narrative, that if one police officer commits an infraction that they are ALL  guilty?

No, you say?

When we look at the MIchael Brown case, we have found that witnesses lied, the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” narrative was a total fabrication, and Brown not only robbed a convenience store , but threatened and grabbed the police officer’s gun. The whole narrative about “poor” Michael Brown was all lies and deception to fuel the cancer that all police officers are racists and bigots. To add insult to injury, even our President got in on the scam. Calling out the police officer as the criminal and Michael Brown as innocent, before the facts were even investigated. A man who dedicated his life to the police force had his career destroyed, his family threatened and their lives ruined because so called civil rights leaders, our president and the department of justice decided to take the opportunity to  throw all police officers under the bus.

Let’s look at some statistics.

In 2012 according to the CDC, 140 blacks were killed by police. That same year 386 whites were killed by police. Between 1999 and 2011, the CDC reports that 2,151 whites were killed by cops, and 1,130 blacks were killed by cops.

Everyone today is spewing forth statistics to back up their arguments. Those statistics change depending on who is reporting on the story.  The truth is that “Exaggerations have poisoned discussions about relations between blacks and the police.

Chuck Todd of Meet the Press said,

“Black men between the ages of 15 and 19 are 21 times as likely as whites to be killed by a police officer.” 

His guest, Charles Ogletree, a Harvard Law Professor said the same,

“The data is clear, that black boys are being killed by white police officers around the country.” 

These statistics were repeated on other shows seemingly nonstop. But are the statistics true? The numbers ARE NOT accurate and they do not take into consideration the whole truth. The fact they do not make clear is that only 217 police departments, only 1.2% of all departments in the country report on this data at all. The few departments that do report this data are predominently in urban areas which tend to have higher concentrations of blacks. This definitely skews the facts. To get an accurate assessment we also have to look at the crime rates between whites and blacks. Based on recent FBI crime numbers,

Black male teenagers were nine times more likely to commit murder than were their white counterparts.

That’s right, nine times, and the gap in these urban areas is undoubtedly even larger. After adjusting for murder rates, black male teenagers are still killed by the police 2.3 times as often as whites. This is a considerable difference — but again, over-representation of urban areas in the data set could be a big part of the explanation.

As reported in the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEON),

A total of 1,501 law-enforcement officers died in the line of duty during the past ten years, an average of one death every 58 hours, or 150 per year. These include local and state police officers, federal officers, correctional officers, and military law-enforcement officers.

Fact: Last year, 100 law-enforcement officers were killed. On average, over the past decade, there have been 58,261 assaults against law enforcement each year, resulting in 15,658 injuries.

Fact: New York City has lost more officers in the line of duty than any other department, with 697 deaths. Texas has lost 1,675 officers, more than any other state.

 NLEOMF released preliminary fatality statistics from August 2013 to August 2014. Total fatalities are up 14 percent, from 63 last year to 72 this year. “Five officers were killed in ambushes, which continue to be a major threat to law enforcement safety,” the group notes.

What about the facts that 83% or all blacks are killed by blacks? Does that set off any bells? Where are the civil rights leaders, President Obama and the Justice Department on these statistics? Why are we not appalled and determined to fix these issues within the inner cities?

Does any of this information  change your opinion on Police Officers? What about the fact that the media exploits the facts to fit their agenda? What about the fact that so-called civil rights leaders exploit these statistics to fatten their wallets? Lets look at Al Sharpton. Does anyone actually believe that he is out there for the good of race relations?  Yet despite the obvious, Al Sharpton has extraordinary access to the president and his top advisers. A White House official told Politico that “there’s a trust factor with the Rev from the Oval Office on down.”   Is this really the person we would all expect to find advising the President of the United States on race relations?

Do you really believe that the destruction of our cities within the United States by protestors and looters is truly a result of police brutality or is it just a case, furthered by our so-called leaders, that one bad apple destroys the whole bushel?

The Chains of Government Strengthens as our Morality Weakens”

imgres

 

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”- Benjamin Franklin

What has happened to the United States? Many say that it is a natural progression that is inevitable, but is it actually the breakdown of our morals, our ethics, our family structure and our school systems? Is it the inevitable “chains of government,” that have slowly but surely bound us with the very freedoms we claim to embrace?

In the name of progression, we have thrown out the very things that made this country great. Our leaders have shunned the very thought that the United States is a Christian Nation and our freedoms are slowly being taken from us on a daily basis. Government of the people, by the people, for the people, exists no more!  We are now being ruled by the political elite who have adopted  “political correctness,” as the new rule of law.

Writer Malcomb Muggeridge (one time editor of Punch magazine) wrote,

“It is difficult to resist the conclusion that 20th century man has decided to abolish himself . Tired of the struggle to be himself he has created boredom out of his own affluence, impotence out of his own erotomania, and vulnerability out of his own strength, He himself  blows the trumpet that brings the walls of his own cities crashing down until at last having educated himself into imbecility, having drugged and polluted himself into stupefaction, he keels over, a weary old brontosaurus, and becomes extinct.”

In a recent speech, Christian apologist, Ravi Zacharias,  speaks of the progressive movement and secularism.

“It proclaims the gospel [bible], as the last hoorah of an antiquated outlook, to a generation who is intellectually unkept, morally unzipped and volitionally uncurbed. They reveal their sickness of soul by derogating terms like morality, piety, family, work, patriotism, born again, theology , evangelical and christianity. They dismiss [the bible] as middle class hedonism, declaring it intellectually inadmissible while meanwhile, they espouse a life that neither reason nor conscious nor spirit can support or condone……”

Is Christianity so intimidating that our government must stop it at all costs? Why does the progressive movement so determined to redefine our morals and replace them with a sense of self-importance with no sense of shame or responsibility? Is the United States truly a autonomous culture? Do we really respect the right of everyone to believe as they choose? Live and let live? Although we pride ourselves as being autonomous,  has it become a bait and switch society?  We are told that we have freedom of religion and freedom of speech, however, the moment our views do not fit the dialogue taught by the progressives, we are forced, through new government laws and regulations, to change our beliefs. If we are truly an autonomous culture, we must be mutually respectful and civil towards others views and life choices.  However, we are now at the mercy of political correctness which is quickly becoming forced integration.

Recently, Fairfax county in Virginia voted to allow transgender bathrooms in our schools and our communities. This is becoming the norm in cities and states across our nation. Is this progression, or does this fall under the definition of a free society? If an individual has been born with the desire to be a different gender, should we force society to acquiesce to that need? Should our government decide at what age our children should, learn about, experience and accept the definition of transgender? Does this infringe on the freedoms of parents to make a decision regarding the age appropriateness of the subject? Have we taken “freedom” too far? If you choose a lifestyle, you are free to live it. However, should we force everyone to accept it and embrace it?  This is where our society has taken a turn away from common sense. Must we now label bathrooms with every sexual preference regardless of how it infringes on other’s rights?  Will they be labeling bathrooms with a long list of those who are allowed to enter at their own risk? What happened to the simplicity of “Men” and “Women” bathroom signs, and allowing the individual to decide which applies to them? Why must we label every sexual preference on our bathrooms and then force society to embrace it? What is next?

Should we rule that pedophilia is no longer a sexual deviation, but sexual liberation? Believe it or not, progressives are actually debating this issue as we speak.

In an article by The Guardian, “Pedophilia: bringing dark desires to light,” it says,

“The reclassification of pedophilia as a sexual orientation would, however, play into what Goode calls “the sexual liberation discourse”, which has existed since the 1970s. “There are a lot of people,” she says, “who say: we outlawed homosexuality, and we were wrong. Perhaps we’re wrong about pedophilia.”

The United States is a country founded on freedoms. However, have we taken leave of our senses? Have we taken “political correctness” to a level that we must allow, accept and embrace any and all behavior, no matter the deviation from the norm? Under the new progressive movement, must we allow babies to be ripped from their mother’s wombs up to and including 9 months of gestation, in order to allow freedom of choice for women?  Must we educate our young children on the different sexual lifestyles; heterosexuality, homosexuality, bi-sexuality, pedophilia, bestiality, through the public school system, in the name of sexual freedom?  Must we embrace the destruction, looting, burning and violence that comes with protests in order to support the freedom of speech? Must we point the finger of blame for the sins of the past, demand restitution while enduring reverse discrimination in the name of equal rights? Must we quiet the voices of Christianity, while lifting up Islamic extremism, in the name of religious freedom? Must we, not only welcome, and pay for illegals but allow them a voice in our elections in the name of voter rights? Must we accept the NSA into our bedrooms, homes, computers, bank accounts, phone calls and every aspect of our personal lives in the name of national security? Must we accept the audits and persecution of the IRS when our political beliefs and voices go against the beliefs of the political elite? Must we all follow the dietary rule of law set by government because they say we simply do not know better? Must we allow the political elite to indoctrinate our children through a government controlled education system that will ensure the decline of our competitive standing in the world and the continued control of the masses? How long can we continue to allow our constitutional republic to be turned into a tyrannical system of government? If  Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry, then we are seeing our country fundamentally changed against our will every day.

Must we accept the mutilation of our constitution and accept lies and deceit in place of truth all in the name of politics and power? Must we accept that we are no longer the electorate and the elected, but the ruling and the ruled? It is time to stand up and break the chains of government that have bound us all and get back to the basics on which this country was founded. Family, hard work, an understanding of right and wrong, and common sense freedoms that were intended by our Founding fathers.

“When secularism has evicted everything that is sacred and made a free for all grab for sensation and feeling alone it will ultimately irradiate a feeling of shame in a culture. Shame is a desperately needed sensation when things are wrong deep within you. Show me a man or a woman or a culture without shame and I will show you monstrosity in the making. If secularism leads to a society without shame, society cannot survive.”- Ravi Zacharias

‘If chance be the father of all flesh, disaster is his rainbow in the sky. And when you hear a state of emergency…. sniper kills, youths go looting, bomb blasts school…. it is but the sound of man worshipping his maker.”-Steve Turner.

“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!

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!!!

“Without Obama We Would Never Know……..

 

shutterstock_203733379

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, would you know that the Taliban is not a terrorist organization but just an “armed insurgency?”

The Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai, a 16-year-old Pakistani child advocate for girl’s education, in the face because she simply wanted an education. Then how could we forget the December attack in Pakistan where the Taliban killed 145 people, mostly children in their school uniforms.  What about the story of the 7-year-old Afghanistan boy who was hung by the Taliban simply because he had American dollars in his pocket? But the Obama administration and Democrats want to educate the American people in the facts….they are not terrorists!

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, we would not know that trading 5 Taliban terrorists, for Bo Bergdahl, a deserter, is not negotiating with terrorists. Yet when Jordan decides to trade a female terrorist responsible for a 2005 suicide bomb attack for a Japanese war veteran held by ISIS, the White House says,

“We don’t pay ransom, we don’t give concessions to terrorist organizations.”

“We don’t get into negotiation with terrorists. We don’t pay ransom because that cash than fuels further kidnappings, which just continue to exacerbate the problem. So, we’re not going to do that.” (Fox News Sunday)

Meanwhile, it has been suggested that the Army has plans to charge Bergdahl with desertion. And one of the terrorists exchanged by Obama for Bergdahl is now a top ISIS commander.

As reported by the National Report,

“Mullah Mohammed Fazi, one of the five Guantanamo Bay detainees released by the Obama administration in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, has been confirmed to be currently in Iraq. Fazi, the Taliban’s former Defense Minister, is serving in a leadership capacity within the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.”

If it were not for President Obama and Democrats, would you know that ISIS/ISIL, who behead innocent men, women and children from every religious faction, while praising Allah, have nothing to do with Islam? I mean how we would ever know this if we did not have Obama and Democrats telling us so?

Let’s look at our recent and continuing economic and foreign policy lessons we continue to learn from President Obama and Democrats.  Direct from the horse’s mouth, at the recent SOTU, (State of the Union):

Obama:

“America, in 2014, had a “breakthrough year.”  “Our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999” “Our employment rate is lower that it was before the financial crisis.”

The Reality:

Unemployment is at 5.6%, yet if you added back into the mix all the Americans who have dropped out of the workforce because they have given up trying to find a job, we would be looking at an unemployment rate of 9.1%. According to the Economic Policy Institute, over 6 million Americans have quit looking for jobs that are not there.  They say,

“The unemployment rate published, (5.6%) drastically understates the weakness of job opportunities.”

But how would those unemployed Americans sitting at home, disillusioned and hopeless in rebuilding their lives because the economy still stinks, know that the economy and the job market is really GREAT, if Obama didn’t tell us this?

Obama:

“Tonight for the first time since 9/11 our combat mission in Afghanistan, [Iraq] is over….The Shadow of crisis has passed and the State of the Union is strong.”

The Reality:

According to the Huffington Post, a liberal alternative to the Drudge Report,

“Can we afford another failed state in Afghanistan?”

“In the annals of U.S. foreign policy, Afghanistan stands as a typical case where a flawed military strategy has sidelined viable political solutions.  The U.S. has had a war strategy, but no political strategy or a clear exit strategy.”

“Many of the warlords who Balkanized the country in the 1990s act as high-ranking officials and parliamentarians, ranks they have acquired through the flagrant abuse of ethnic loyalties and tribal quotas. Furthermore, some of these warlords-turned-demagogues have been implicated in crimes against humanity, but remain immune to prosecution with the tacit approval of the United States.”

And from Newsweek,

“A leading politician in Iraq has warned that unless the United States and its allies can quickly liberate the parts of Iraq under ISIS control, people there may soon learn to live with the militants. “Time, is not on our side.”

And from the The Boston Globe,

“The recent terrorist attack in Paris against the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a kosher supermarket stunned the city. For three days we watched the drama unfold; the brazen assault and massacre, the desperate search for the brothers, the subsequent standoff, and a deadly hostage situation that targeted the Jewish community. The conclusions to both crises were violent and virtually simultaneous.”

As stated in the Business Insider in July of 2014,

“The most extreme faction of Al Qaeda is winning, and it’s leading to the destruction of Iraq.”

 Obama:

“We believed we could reduce our dependence on foreign oil and protect our planet. And today, America is number one in oil and gas. America is number one in wind power. Every three weeks we bring online as much solar power as we did in all of 2008.  And thanks to lower gas prices and higher fuel standards, the typical family this year should save $750 at the pump.”

The Reality:

From the Washington Times,

“President Obama has gone to war. But not with the Islamic State group, Iran, North Korea or any foreign threat. Mr. Obama, at the urging of environmental extremists, has declared war on America’s oil and natural gas producers. His weapon of choice is a new Environmental Protection Agency regulation to cut methane emissions by up to 45 percent by 2025.”

From the Wall Street Journal,

 “The Obama administration said Tuesday it would veto legislation that would authorize the Keystone XL pipeline.”

From the Washington Examiner,

“Oil, natural gas and coal production in this country are at record levels. But this is despite Obama’s policies, not, as he implied, because of them. Oil, natural gas and coal production are zooming upwards on private land, but plummeting on government lands.”

“Immediately after taking office in 2009, Obama canceled 77 leases for oil and gas drilling in Utah. Then in January 2010, Obama issued new regulations further restricting energy development on all federal lands.”

“Obama instituted not one but two comprehensive drilling bans in the Gulf of Mexico, the first of which was declared illegal by a federal judge. After lifting his second ban, Obama refused to issue permits for any new drilling in the Gulf, which EIA estimated cut domestic offshore oil production by 13 percent that year alone.”

“Obama has leased less than half as many offshore acres as President Clinton did at the same point in his tenure. And Obama is blocking access to 19 billion barrels of oil in the Pacific and Atlantic coasts and the eastern Gulf of Mexico, another 10 billion barrels estimated in the Chukchi Sea off the Alaskan coast, and another 10 billion barrels of oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve.”

“Even so, the United States is undergoing an energy revolution, making the U.S. dramatically less dependent on oil from hostile foreign nations. Increased natural gas production is making manufacturing here competitive again due to lower production costs, which in turn fuels a manufacturing employment expansion the country has not seen in decades. It’s the fruit of Americans working together voluntarily in the private sector. Think what they could do if Obama and the bureaucrats would get out-of-the-way.”

From CNN,

Solyndra, Abound Solar, Beacon Power, and Ener1, Obama’s green energy,  firms that all received money from the stimulus totaling over $1 billion dollars, have all gone bankrupt.

Obama:

“Will we allow ourselves to be sorted into factions and turned against one another–or will we recapture the sense of common purpose that has always propelled America forward?” 

The Reality:

From the National Review:

“Considered politically toxic by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush,  Al Sharpton has been enthusiastically embraced by President Obama. He has bragged about helping to pick a new attorney general and communed with the current one. In fact, a much-quoted Politico profile last summer, described Al Sharpton as Obama’s “go-to man on race.”

From Breitbart:

“President Barack Obama invited Al Sharpton to a series of White House meetings on Monday concerning the Ferguson riots, but he did not feel it was necessary to give someone from the Ferguson police department a seat at the table.” 

“Obama also met with two “youth leaders” from Ferguson. Obama later cited their stories and said that hearing “young people feeling marginalized and distrustful even after they’ve done everything right” only “violates” his “belief in what America can do.””

Meanwhile, protestors in Ferguson trashed, vandilized and destroyed over 40 business in Ferguson in protest.

A few of the many other headlines on the Ferguson riots:

  • “Elderly Man Attacked With His Own Oxygen Tank and Carjacked By Protesters.”
  • “Ferguson Rioters Attack Little Kids At Christmas tree Lighting Event.”
  • “Reporter Attacked, Robbed at Gunpoint in Ferguson; Protesters Set his Car on Fire”
  • “Pack of Teens Beat Man to Death Near Ferguson”
  • “Rioters Attack Police Car in Ferguson”
  • “Micheal Brown’s Mother to Face Robbery charges.”
  • “Fox Reporter Attacked by Masked Man in Ferguson”
  • “Officer Violently Attacked, Shot During Ferguson-Related Riot”

“Obama also met with two “youth leaders” from Ferguson. Obama later cited their stories and said that hearing “young people feeling marginalized and distrustful even after they’ve done everything right” only “violates” his “belief in what America can do.””

I guess we wouldn’t know that the Ferguson protesters did everything right if it weren’t for President Obama, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton clearing that up for us.

From The National Review:

 “President Obama said that police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, “acted stupidly” in arresting a prominent black Harvard professor last week after a confrontation at the man’s home.”

From the Huffington Post,

“Obama on Trayvon Martin Case: If I had a son he would look like Trayvon.”(regarding Ferguson, prior to investigations)

“We fund a lot of jurisdictions all across the country. And if we can identify best practices, then for us to be able to say, you need to adopt these best practices, and if you don’t, then perhaps some of the funding that’s available around some things that law enforcement cares about become less available,” Obama said.

“We’re going to provide more to folks who are doing the right thing and we’re going to be investigating folks who are not doing the right thing.”

The American people have been lied to over and over and over again by this President and members of the Democratic party. Decisions are no longer made in the best interest of the country, but in the best interest of politics. The current administration’s cabinet has been filled with Obama cheerleaders who are  determined to continue with President Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform the United States” into something we no longer even recognize…..A Nation that now has no morals, has shut out God and welcomed in Islam, where lying is the new truth,  part time work is now the norm, and we, the taxpayer are responsible for funding every illegal in the country to make sure they have a homes, food, education and healthcare, while we go without.  Add insult to injury,  Webster’s dictionary has to be rewritten because you are not allowed to use half the words in it for fear of offending someone!

It is time for change….

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!!

“Trickle Down Hatred and Contempt”

COMIC white house _edited-1 copy copy

Trickle down hatred and contempt. Is it real? Is it being used to control us?  Where does the buck stop on this issue, or more importantly, where does it begin?

We have all heard of trickle down economics, but what about trickle down hatred and contempt?  Can a leader set the stage and simply, imply by their action or non action, that they will tolerate hatred and contempt of a specific group in order to further their own agenda? Can negative comments by a leader regarding specific groups of people influence how those people will be treated or seen by others? Should the president of the United States be  representing only the portion of the public that believes as he does? How do our leader’s comments and actions influence the level of tolerance or acceptance exhibited by the American people?

The International Journal of Leadership Studies released a study by Diane J. Chandler from the Regent University School of Divinity, United States titled, “The Perfect Storm of Leaders’ Unethical Behavior: A Conceptual Framework,

“We can and do condemn the actions of leaders who decide to lie, belittle followers, and enrich themselves at the expense of the less fortunate.”  Unethical leadership behavior is, therefore, defined  as the organizational process of leaders acting in a manner inconsistent with agreed upon standards of character, decency, and integrity, which blurs or violates clear, measurable and legal standards, fostering constituent distrust because of personal interest.”

“Unethical behavior and its persistence must have a catalyzing starting place, a tipping point moment that prompts all subsequent unethical behavior, similar to the vortex of a tornado drawing everything into its fury.”

“Unethical charismatic leaders select or produce obedient, dependent, and compliant followers. Consequently when leaders deviate from ethical norms, compliant followers tend not to critique leaders’ decisions, since leaders are considered to be the standard bearers for moral conduct. The downside of charisma concerns possible negative consequences, including abuse of personalized power, the nurture of blind loyalties, and the inhibition of any criticism.”

Since the beginning of the Obama presidency, many of his speeches have resulted in great condescension towards Americans who disagree with his policies.  Obama has claimed that Americans who don’t agree with his administration on climate change are “a fairly serious threat to everybody’s future,” and “we don’t have time for a meeting of the flat earth society.” In another speech,  “You go in to small towns in Pennsylvania and it’s not surprising that they get bitter, they cling to their guns and their religion.”  In another, “Ideological extremism and maximalist position is much more prominent in the Republican party.”   Obama has made negative inferences regarding Fox News on more than one occasion, and a top official in his cabinet called Netanyahu a “Chickens**t.” In a ‘hot mic’ moment, Obama was caught calling tea party members, “dangerous extremists.” Is calling out those who disagree with his policies the proper behavior for the President of the United States? Are those who disagree, really a threat to society, racists, naysayers, flat-earthers, terrorists and extortionists?

When the president demonizes groups that disagree with him is he encouraging the mistreatment and exploitation of these groups? Do his comments influence and encourage the press and his public supporters to treat members of the tea party as extremists,  small town Americans as crazy and christians as religious fanatics? Is it right for the President of the United States to single out members of American society for disdain, ridicule or potential retaliation?

In June of 2013, according to a Rasmussen report, one in four voters who supported Obama reported believing that the tea party was the biggest terror threat to the United States. The most surprising aspect of this poll was that one in four believed that tea party members were not only the biggest threat to the United States, but a bigger threat than terrorists.

What about the race card?  Has the president and his team, used race as a tool to garner support for their policies, elicit votes or basically stir up opposition and in turn create more racial divide?

In October, in the Review and Outlook section of the Wall Street Journal, it was said,

“All this brings to mind a young presidential candidate named Barack Obama, who warned in 2008 that Republicans would play the race card. “They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. ‘He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?’” he told a rally. Mr. Obama won, and won again, but that hasn’t stopped Democrats from rolling out that same racism charge at any opportunity, using it in particular as a tool to drive minority turnout in elections….But Democrats do themselves no credit and the country no good by playing up racial divisions for partisan ends. Alas, they’ll keep doing it until voters stop rewarding them with votes.”

Are there still racial issues currently in the United States? As long as there are people in the world, there will always be differing opinions and therefore discrimination against many races and religions.   However, in the United States, we have made giant steps towards resolving these issues since Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. In 2008, we elected a black president.  According to exit polls, President Obama did better with white voters than the past 2 democratic nominees, John Kerry and Al Gore. However, even with such great support from whites, Democrats still blame racism for the downward spiral of support for Obama.  Did every white person who voted for Obama suddenly turn racist? Or could it possibly be attributed to a failure in his policies and the continued stagnation of the economy and job creation among other heated issues?

In his recent speech to the UN, Obama compared the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson to the situation the world faces with ISIS. Does this place mis-founded ideas about racism over and above the threats by ISIS? Do his comments supporting Michael Brown over the police, prior to the completion of an investigation, cause distrust of our police by other communities, therefore encouraging unnecessary protests and dissension?

Does Obama’s silence on the slaughter of Christians around the world, represent a trickle down condemnation, and therefore, without words, send a message that Christians are no longer a group that we, as Americans, should support?

Ben Carson a pediatric neurosurgeon, and current candidate for the 2016 presidential election said,

“We need to understand that we are not each others’ enemies in this country. And it is only the political class that derives its power by creating friction. It is only the media that derives its importance by creating friction…that uses every little thing to create this chasm between people. This is not who we are……I think one of the keys to leadership is recognizing that everybody has gifts and talents. A good leader will learn how to harness those gifts toward the same goal.”

Martin Luther King said,

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.”

As Americans we must not allow our leaders to use polarization for their own political ends. We must work towards a common goal and find solutions to make the country stronger.  Having an open mind and listening to all sides is a true sign of maturity, broad mindedness and tolerance. If we can all learn to co-exist and attempt to understand the position of others, instead of demonizing those who think differently, the country will be able to heal itself.   If you preach tolerance, and expect other to be tolerant, then you must be tolerant yourself. If you preach divisiveness, then you must expect divisiveness from others, therefore prohibiting the very tolerance we all so desperately  want.
 We must recognize, that when we support leaders who use polarization to their own political ends, then it will, one day,  be our own beliefs that will be at the receiving end of the trickle down hatred and contempt.

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.

A Politicians Real Truth Exposed!

Unknown

 

Where will the country stand after the midterm elections? Where will Virginia stand after the next election? How about Kentucky, Colorado, or a host of other states around the country?  Should we have to wait until after the midterm elections to find out exactly who we just voted into office?

I sure hope not, because we all know the outcome to “lies first” and “facts later.” Remember Nancy Pelosi’s now famous line,  “we have to vote for it to find out exactly what is in it?”   How did that turn out? Over a trillion hard-earned taxpayer dollars wasted, millions of Americans losing their policies, insurance rates through the roof and deductibles unattainable.  Millions more set to receive their cancellation letters before Christmas.  But, how did that turn out for our elected officials? They kept their Cadillac insurance plans, subsidized 75% by the taxpayer, no interruption to their daily lives, all while we scrambled around in the mud trying to regain some sense of order to the disastrous mess they made at our expense.  Should we really wait until after the midterms to find out where the United States is headed, or should we grab that bull by the horns and decide which direction is best for the American people and not our politicians?

How much better off would we be, if we could actually hold our politicians responsible for the promises they make?  What if we could throw them out of office, without any fanfare, without any questions or excuses, if we found out that they lied to their constituents? I’m not talking about small untruths, or embellishments,  I am talking about purposeful, bold-face lies that have been told to the American people, in order to further political  careers, embolden political parties and fatten wallets while selling the American people down the proverbial drain?  How many politicians would lose their jobs today, if we were to hold them accountable for the bold-face lies they told? Unfortunately for us, too many to count.

Recently, the Democratic candidate for Kentucky, Alison Grimes, was caught like a deer in the headlights lying to the people of Kentucky. She claimed she was a supporter of the coal industry and  promised to fight for them, against President Obama’s “war on coal,” if elected. Unfortunately for her and fortunately for the people of Kentucky, it was discovered that she, in fact, bold-faced lied!  A major donor to her campaign admitted,

“Grimes is faking her support of the coal industry, and will f**k em as soon as she gets elected.”(http://youtu.be/L4sn-jI12_8)

What about the promises that were made to keep our borders secure? What about the promises that were made to keep our children and our communities safe from infectious diseases?  What about the promises made to send illegals back where they came from? What about the promises made to fight terrorism? As we have discovered, on so many fronts, our politicians refuse to tell us the truth. They bold-face lie! They refuse to answer simple questions on exactly where they stand on the issues.  They refuse to answer questions regarding their actions. We are exposed to evasion, avoidance, manipulation, denial, misdirection, and the ever-present distraction. Yet, predominantly, we see our current politicians bold-face lie to the American people, and meanwhile, mainstream media remains cooperative, collaborative, collusive and completely hand in glove with the political machine. The only truths are discovered through sleuth, by everyday Americans determined to expose our so-called public servants for who they really are.  Is this starting to sound like a conspiracy?  But what do they have to gain from deceiving the American people?  Power and money….it makes the world go round!

Mark Warner, incumbent senator running in Virginia, promised he would never vote for a health insurance bill if it did not allow  you to keep your policy or doctor if  you liked them. He voted “yes” for Obamacare, and he continues to support the failing ACA bill, knowing full well Americans cannot keep their policies or their doctors.  His current ads proclaim him as a successful small business owner, who has proven that he can work across party lines to get things done. But is that true? Mark Warner is currently the second richest Senator on the Hill. His net worth is estimated at over $270 million. Did he earn that by working hard to make his small business a huge success,  or did he use insider information while working with Chris Dodd, Democrat for Connecticut, about the newly emerging wireless industry and spectrum licensing to get a jump on the rest of Virginians? Does he support amnesty? Does he really support the “right to work state,” while pushing for bills that actually support big Unions and hurt the “right to work” cause? Has he really reached across the aisle, or has he voted with President Obama 97% of the time? What is the truth?

Recently, Harry Reid’s body guard physically attacked a “non-mainstream,” reporter for simply asking how Reid could be worth over $10 million on a public servant’s salary of $194,000 a year. If you believe he made it honestly, I have some land that I want to sell you in order to build a bridge across the Colorado River that is a priority to no one but Harry Reid’s bank account.

Last, but definitely not least, It has been proven that President Obama has told countless bold-face lies, in order to be elected and re-elected.

Is this legal? Can our politicians actually bold-face lie to us and get away with it? What if the lies result in disaster for the voting public?

Recently, the Supreme Court of the United States, in a 9-0 decision determined that political ads are protected by the First Amendment. In other words, our politicians are legally allowed to lie to the American people, and mainstream media is allowed to further those lies, refusing to uphold their oath to actually inform the American people, in order to further their political agenda.  However, in the same breath, 46 Senate Democrats, lead by Harry Reid, decided that the First Amendment was actually an impediment to re-election for them. As a result they decided it would be a good idea to regulate the amount of money everyday citizens could spend advocating for the political candidates of their choice. President Obama even conceded, in an oral argument, that the law being pushed by democrats would in fact, allow the government to ban political books or pamphlets. Imagine if this law had passed. Not only would we not be able to promote our political choices, but the government would have been able to stop American citizens from printing or distributing  any publications or pamphlets promoting our beliefs, all while upholding their right to purposefully bold-face lie  to the American people. The height of hypocrisy!

So what happens when lying is upheld in our court system, and the media, owned in a 75% majority by the Liberal left, promotes these lies that eventually thwart the truth that is necessary for the informed voter to make an educated choice in the voting booth?

If truth be told, the American people are F****D!

Dig deep for the truth, and go to the poles on November 4th and say enough is enough!!!

Mark Warner; Worth Millions While Virginians Go Broke!

US-VOTE-2012-DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN-OBAMA

Who is Mark Warner? He has been a Senator for the state of Virginia since 2008 and is running for re-election this November for another 6 years. He has voted with President Obama 97% of his time in office. He has worked in government since the early 1980’s, and is currently the 2nd richest Senator in office with a net worth over $200 million.

How did he make his fortune?  There have been strong suggestions that while he was a staffer for then Senator, Chris Dodd, Democrat for Connecticut, he had insider information about the newly emerging wireless industry; specifically spectrum licensing. As a result, he was able to profit from his federal beneficence. Often at speaking events, Warner hears a cell phone ring and says,

“Those cell phones…most people consider them an annoyance, but I just hear cha-ching, cha-ching.”

Up until 2012, members of Congress were not subject to punishment for insider trading when it involved nonpublic information about current or upcoming congressional activity.   For example, if a lawmaker learned that a grant would be offered under a government contract to a specific company, they were free to buy stock before that company announced it to the public, resulting in large profits.

Before the cellular phone age, in the early 1980s, the federal government made a decision as to who would get the rights to send signals across the public airwaves.  This was information that the public did not have access to and that resulted in Warner amassing his fortune.

Peter Schweizer, a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and the president of the Government Accountability Institute,  wrote a book called,  Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich Off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison.”   His book was released shortly after 60 minutes reported on Congress trading stock based on insider information in 2012.  As true today as in 2012, 60 minutes stated,

With the next national election less than a year away, congressman and senators are spending much of their time and energy raising the millions of dollars in campaign funds they need to hold on to a job that pays just 174,00 per year. Few of them are doing it for the salary and all of them will say they are doing it to serve the public. But there are other benefits: power prestige and the opportunity to become a Washington insider with access to information and connections that no one else has and an environment of privilege where rules that govern the rest of the country don’t always apply to them. Most former congressmen  and senators manage to leave Washington, if they ever leave Washington,  with more money in their pockets then they had when they arrived and the biggest challenge is avoiding temptation.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/congress-trading-stock-on-inside-information/

In 2006, Representatives, Louise Slaughter and Brian Baird,  introduced the STOCK Act which would make it illegal for members of Congress to trade stock on non public information and would require Congress to report stock trades every 90 days instead of once a year.  The bill went nowhere.  When Baird got a Congressional hearing on the Stock Act, no one showed up.

The situation did not improve.  “Political Intelligence,” took over. A practice  where former Congressmen and Staffers were allowed to roam the halls of Congress gathering nonpublic information and selling it to hedge funds. This would be considered criminal in the free market system, with prison sentences for those partaking, but was used on the Hill as a profit-making industry, bringing in over $100 million a year.

In September of 2008,  Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and the Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, held closed-door meetings with Congressional Leaders telling them that a global financial meltdown would happen within days. The American people were not warned, and suffered the consequences of  lost retirements and lifetime savings depleted, while our representatives on the Hill, were all able to protect their millionaire status, due to insider information.

In 2012, as a result of the 60 minutes investigation, and the embarrassment it caused many representatives such as Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner, Congress unanimously passed the STOCK Act. President Obama, with quite a bit of fanfare, signed the Act, stating,

“The powerful shouldn’t get to create one set of rules for themselves and another set of rules for everybody else. If we expect that to apply to our biggest corporations and to our most successful citizens, it certainly applies to our elected officials, especially at a time when there is a deficit of trust between this city and the rest of the country.”

However, in April of 2013, the House and the Senate unanimously voted, and President Obama quietly signed new legislation, to repeal a provision in the STOCK Act that would require 28,000 senior government officials to post all financial information online, available to the public.

The question now remains, are the American people being represented by millionaires on the Hill, who have thrown us under the bus while they continue to make millions on nonpublic insider information. Under the STOCK Act, it is illegal for our representatives and their staff to use insider information,  but who is to know without the provision requiring their trading activities be made public? Why do we continue to elect  representatives that have made their fortunes while claiming to serve the people, all while padding their bank accounts and assuming they understand the plight of the average American citizen.

As we all discovered, Congress voted not to participate in Obamacare, (Affordable Care Act) like the majority of Americans. Let’s not forget that Mark Warner provided a critical vote on December 23, 2009 to stop further in-depth  debate on Obamacare. The bill then proceeded to pass on Christmas Eve with Democrats voting unanimously to pass Obamacare, (Affordable Care Act), without even knowing what was in it. To this day, with their Cadillac Insurance plans intact, subsidized by hardworking taxpayers, only the American citizen is seeing millions of policies cancelled, rates and deductibles going through the roof, and those who cannot afford the insurance, forced to pay ever increasing fines to the Federal Government. Hundreds of thousands of illegals are allowed to partake in Obamacare at our expense while our President looks the other way. We have seen our once full time job market shift to a part time offering, workforce participation has not been this low since the 70’s, all while the government claims unemployment has fallen under 6%. Over 49% of Americans are getting some type of government, taxpayer funded assistance. Our borders have been invaded and millions of tax dollars are spent on lawyers, charter flights, and schooling, for illegals.  As a result, we are forced to cover budget deficits within our schools and communities and left wondering why illegal children are allowed in our schools without health certificates or the vaccinations that all American citizens are required to have.  President Obama and Democrats see no threats to our country by ISIS or drug cartels crossing into our open borders, and the majority of Democrats including Mark Warner voted against completing the border fence that was promised years ago in exchange for an earlier amnesty.  Our President continues to claim that we are better off today then we were 6 years ago, but I have to assume he is talking about our representatives on the hill because their accounts have continued to grow while most Americans have watched their savings dwindle.

It is time for the American people to say enough is enough!  We must make our representatives live by the same rule of law that we are forced to obey.  We need to send home the representatives who have made a career out of making millions in office while the rest of the country goes down the proverbial drain! Tell them we have had enough…VOTE Mark Warner out!!

We MUST Bite Off the Hand that Feeds Us!

img345 2

Recently, President Obama told a British news magazine,

 “There’s almost no economic metric by which you couldn’t say that the U.S. economy is better and that corporate bottom lines are better. None.”

 Some facts:

  •  Roughly 50 million native-born, working age Americans are not working. Over half of these people are of prime working age.
  •  67% of children have one parent that is unemployed.
  •  The current unemployment rate is 9.6% (This includes the number of Americans who have dropped out of the market)
  •  Unemployment rate for 18-34 year olds is 46%.
  •  3.9 million Americans are unemployed over 27 weeks.
  •  3.9 million manufacturing jobs lost since Obama took office.
  •  Over 721,000 “Shovel Ready” jobs lost since 2008.
  •  The last time the labor force participation rate was this low was in 1978.
  •  In July 2014, part-time jobs increased by 799,000 while full-time jobs fell by 523,000.
  •  53% of American workers make less than $30,000 a year.
  •  The U.S, poverty rate has increased to 16.1%, higher than when the “War on Poverty” began in 1965.
  •  Median household income in American has fallen for four straight years with an overall decline of $4000.
  •  In 2008, student debt was at $440 billion.  Today student debt is over a $1 trillion.
  •  Gas prices have increased 79% under Obama.
  •  The average increase in insurance rates since Obamacare was implemented is $3,671, with deductibles ranging from $6,000 to 15,000.
  • Over 5 million Americans have lost their insurance due to Obamacare.
  •  Over 47 million Americans are on food stamps.
  •  The U.S. Census reports that over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program
  • In 2008, the U.S. debt to GDP ration was under 70%. Today that has jumped to 110%.

In the same interview with a British news magazine, Obama said,

 “I would take the complaints of the corporate community with a grain of salt. They always complain about regulation, that’s their job.”

 

Is this statement true? Has small business been affected negatively by the number of regulations imposed by the Obama Administration?

The Regulatory Flexibility Act directs federal agencies to assess the effects of rules and regulations on small business. Obama has actually issued fewer regulations for business than Bush, however, the regulations he has enacted have impacted small business more than any enacted by Bush. Therefore, the most important question is not how many regulations have been implemented, but how good are they and do they help or hinder the economy?

In 2012, alone, the American Action forum said,

“The cost of regulations has added tremendous costs to the economy and finds that the year 2012 tops every year in the past twelve in terms of final rule cost.”

 Reported in Forbes in March of 2013,

“Small business is still in recession. The number of startup jobs has fallen 30% below the Bush and Clinton eras. The rate of new business formation in the US has fallen to a record low. The reductions in small business employment during 2008 and 2009 were the largest ever recorded in the history of the National Federation of Independent Business data series. Now, four years after the supposed “recovery,” small business is no better off.”

 “Federal government employment has grown and most big companies have recovered. However, 1 in 5 small firms expect to drop employees and 1 in 3 expect to decrease capital spending and expect to be in more severe cash flow troubles by the end of the year.”

 

What has caused small business growth to remain stagnant? Let’s begin with Obamacare, over-regulation, high corporate tax rates, and the Federal Reserve’s giveaways to “too big to fail” financial institutions.  Did you know that the top four “big banks” control over 40% of the credit markets? Did you know that this percentage has grown over 10% since Obama took office? With the passage of Obama’s Dodd-Frank law, there are over 330 fewer small banks and the volume of business loans under $1 million fell 13%.

 

A new study by the Brookings Institute indicates that businesses are shutting down faster than they are opening. The US economy has become less entrepreneurial over time, but the drop since 2006 is disturbing.

 

“The level of business deaths kept growing along with the overall level of business in the economy, but the level of business births did not- it held relatively steady before dropping significantly in the recent downturn. In fact, business deaths now exceed business births for the first time in the thirty-plus-year history of our data.”

 

A growing economy is necessary for newer and smaller businesses to form and since the economy is not growing, there are many businesses that may never have the opportunity to start-up. The Obama presidency has been good for larger firms and those with connections in Washington. The higher tax rates do not impact large business as much as it does smaller business. So under Obama, we have seen big government and big business thrive while small business, the real driver of job creation and the economy, has been further depressed through higher regulation, higher taxes, and higher healthcare costs because of Obamacare.

 

Obama’s 2009 stimulus did little to stimulate private sector jobs, but gave massive funding to state and local government jobs. Private sector jobs in 2012 were down by 4% from January 2008, however federal employment was actually up 11.4%.  The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported in March that employing government workers costs 45% more than an equivalent private sector worker.  Government workers average 33% higher pay and their pension and retirement benefit costs are now 254% higher as well. The total compensation for government workers is now 45 % higher than the private sector, which partially explains why the federal debt has more than tripled to 110% of GDP.

 

In July 2014, Janet Yellen, Federal Reserve chairwoman, told Congress,

 

“Too many Americans remain unemployed, inflation remains below our longer-run objective and not all of the necessary financial reform initiatives have been completed”.

 

So what is the truth?  In the past, new business bailed out the economy and spurred innovation and new jobs. Without these small businesses, and an economy dominated by big government, big money and political favors, the free enterprise system that the United States has enjoyed since its foundation will never recover.

 

We MUST  bite off the hand that feeds us!
