How in the World was Trump Elected?

shutterstock_315714344

A friend recently posted an article by the Wall Street Journal, on Facebook. The article was titled, ” ‘Deplorables’ Rise Up to Reshape America,” written by Gerald Seib. Intrigued, as I have always considered the Wall Street Journal to be a respected publication, I read the article. It was insulting to say the least. Sadly, I tossed my Wall Street Journal in the trash and have cancelled my subscription, and with a sigh admit that there is no honest ‘middle of the road’  journalism left in the United States.

We have all heard the bloviating of every major news station and every mainstream publication, who demonized Trump from the beginning, thinking they understand the reason that he was propelled into the White House. Of course, those of us who jumped into the “deplorables” basket freely with enthusiasm, relieved that someone was finally running for office who understood what was happening to our country, know the REAL REASON Trump won. We should all be asking ourselves why anyone would believe the mainstream media in their post-election frenzy, when they clearly lied, misrepresented the truth, cheated in the debates and flat-out lied to the American people during the entire election process. These same naysayers are now standing up clearly delusional in their belief that only they can predict what he will do when he takes control of the White House and the once most powerful Nation in the world.

Well, here’s a newsflash. They didn’t have clue when he joined the race, they purposefully tried to destroy him when he was winning the race and now they will misrepresent, yet again, what they think will happen to the United States now that he has won. In their infinite stupidity and allegiance to the liberal political elite, they scream racist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, bigot and destroyer of the atmosphere in a continued effort to scare anyone who might agree that we need change. I think, as a self-professed deplorable, I should explain the real reason he won from the point of view of a person who actually voted for him.

Unfortunately, the WSJ article is full of accusations, divisiveness and polarization which is, in fact, the message of the liberal left. A left who demands tolerance, unless of course you disagree with them, which will result in the destruction of  your personal property, the burning of your business or the beating of your life. Trump won the White House because the “majority” of Americans who voted for him….whites, blacks, gays, women, Latinos, immigrants (legal), rich, poor uneducated and educated, white-collar and blue-collar are sick of the lawlessness and the complete disregard for the exceptionalism of the United States and its people. The majority of America falls in the middle, not only in opinions, but in a class of people who believe that hard work, the rule of law and our constitution should be important enough to defend. This majority is tired of being sacrificed at the altar of Wall Street and the political elites through bail outs and stimulus given to the very people who destroyed the economy for their own personal gain in the first place. Crooks who were handed our money, earned by the same hard-working American people, who lost their homes, their jobs, their savings and retirement plans. Our money, given to the same crooks who were allowed to take the millions they stole and continue with their lives while never being punished or held accountable for their illegal manipulation of the housing market in the first place.

This ‘Trump’ majority was tired of hearing Democrats and our President apologize for the very things that made this country great and safe, while throwing anyone, who held this country dear, under the bus. A bus full of politically well-connected politicians, CEO’s and special interests who were purposefully throwing billions of American dollars to the United Nations while they, in their high and mighty, misguided infinite wisdom, want the UN to rule the world. ‘Globalization,’ the new buzz word of the liberal left. A word that ultimately means that the US should be bowing to the altar of the same power-hungry global elites who think they know what is best for the ‘stupid’ Americans. The same elites that want open borders that will eventually make America a place that no longer honors its citizens or puts them first.  If they could fool us in to handing over our democratic society, then who else in the world would dare question their intentions. The United States is a great nation and one that has served as a beacon of freedom to the majority of the world. A country that offers liberty, freedom of speech and religion without fear of persecution. A country where hard work will reap great success. A country where millions will place their money and their lives on the line, in order to be called an American citizen. However, ignoring the immigrants  who have lined up for years to become a part of this great nation, our political elite give ambassadorships, visas and passports to anyone who will write a check to their favorite charity….them. They chastise anyone who disagrees with allowing unvetted refugees, who have already committed mass murder as a thank you to those who have opened their borders, to overtake our nation by calling us racists instead of realists.

Meanwhile here at home, the liberal left, in their misguided self-professed wisdom decided to fundamentally change our great Nation. They took over our healthcare, promising lies of affordability, while knowing from the beginning that a single payer system was the ultimate prize. Our education system, taken over by government, is infiltrated with liberal professors and educators who slowly but surely poison the minds of our future generations. They begin by destroying the integrity of the our nation and then follow-up with altering our actual history to suit their twisted agenda of eventually controlling the masses.  Dumb down the youth of today so they can control the adults of tomorrow.  Now, their successful infiltration of the education system has resulted in a generation who think they are entitled to everything without lifting a finger. A generation who was congratulated and handed trophies in their youth for doing nothing. A generation who is so spoiled and uninformed that they demean the very people who fought for and died for their rights to insult our country and burn our flag without retribution. The same generation who, under the protection of democracy, burn their communities and destroy local businesses because they didn’t get their way. Riots and destruction funded by the liberal elites who use the youth to do the dirty work so they can continue to pretend outrage.  The same generation who cheer the corrupt political elite who have weaponized our government agencies and used them to attack and destroy anyone who dare call out their destructive agendas. A generation who cannot recognize how they are being used by the left to seal a future for the United States that gives the well-connected and the elites more power and more money while the rest of us are sacrificed at the altar of globalism.

Yes, Donald Trump was elected and has, by the wish of the majority of the people, separated himself from the old Republican party and the Democrats, by standing up for life, liberty and the right of every American to pursue happiness without the interference of a bloated, misguided, noninclusive government, who has forgotten its place.  Trump, though the power of the people, will put our government back where it belongs….a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

Will President Hillary Pardon Herself?

shutterstock_504001402

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

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

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

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

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

Hillary’s Dream: Open Borders!

preview-1

“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders. We have to resist protectionism [and] other kinds of barriers to market access and to trade.”- Hillary Clinton

This statement by Hillary Clinton was made to a Brazilian bank, Unibanco Itau, in one of her famous speeches to the banking industry and Wall Street. Speeches that she has taken consistent steps to hide from the American people.

Can anyone imagine what the United States would look like in four years, under Hillary Clinton, with just open borders, completely ignoring the needs of the American people? How many hundreds of millions of people would flood through our borders if the United States had no concerns regarding our sovereignty?  Let’s look at the numbers currently representing our immigration system today.

  • In 2014 there were almost 60 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) around the globe. Put another way, that’s one in every 122 people worldwide. Put yet another way, that’s roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Italy being pushed out of their homes.
  • Estimated number of illegals  residing within the US today range between 11.4 – 40 million.
  •  In 2014 alone,  there were 181 million  non-immigrant admissions (primarily tourists, business travelers, and international students).
  • The Diversity Visa Lottery admits 55,000 people annually.
  • In 2014, 1,016,518 foreign nationals became lawful permanent residents (LPRs), also known as green-card holders, according to DHS data.
  • Each year, the USCIS receives and processes about 6 million immigration applications from individuals and employers.
  • One immigration expert estimated the USCIS will receive at least 160,000 applications in 2014 for the 85,000 available H-1B visas.

The Migration Policy Institute says the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, has increased health insurance coverage of immigrants, especially noncitizens, at a greater rate than the U.S. born population.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the number of people unemployed in the U.S in 2016 is 7.9 million.  Americans forced into part-time work, for lack of full-time jobs, hits 5.9 million. The labor participation rate is at the lowest since World War II.

Currently teachers throughout the U.S. are experiencing overcrowding in their classrooms, averaging 40 children per class. As stated in an article by Teach Hub.com, “Classroom Overcrowding: Not Just a Numbers Game,” says:

“Where we used to lack space, now we now lack seats within rooms. Kids sit on counters, on the floors, wherever they can find a space. Teachers struggle to be heard above the din of 40 plus kids, and kids struggle to hear the teacher and keep up with instruction. While we’re racing to the top and leaving no child behind, we’re burying them.” 

According to a report (“Estimated Cost of K-12 Public Education for Unaccompanied Alien Children”) from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) that came out in August, 2014.

“The total estimated cost of educating illegal alien minors during the upcoming school year for all states and the District of Columbia is $761,405,907. New York topping the list with $147,731,339, Texas with $77,655,584, California with $63,908,143, Maryland with $67,937,602, New Jersey with $57,698,181, Florida with $56,773,589, and Virginia with $54,182,412.”

Now, with just these figures alone, imagine what the United States would be like with open borders. Our education system would fall to overcrowding, our healthcare system, now failing under the Affordable Care Act would implode, our current low employment market would open to hundreds of millions of new individuals searching for jobs. Our communities and neighborhoods would be overflowing with people needing a place to live. Is this really the America you imagine? Probably not, but it is the America Hillary dreams about.

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.

Obamaman, And His Sidekick Monaco Girl, Out To Thwart Evil At Gitmo?

shutterstock_359560856

Obamaman and his trusty sidekick Monaco girl, the counterterrorism chief, are like a dark superhero duo who are determined to stop the evil United States from imprisoning or extracting information from the pesky terrorists determined to see all of Western civilization dead and buried. Has this awkward duo actually accepted as their mission, the doctrine of the very terrorists they are determined to release back into civilization? Are they set on their path of undermining the greatest nation on earth…the Force for Good?

The current evil doings of terrorism have included the annihilation of any human being; Christian, Muslim, Jew, man, woman or child, who does not embrace their evil ways, by bowing to their twisted will of Allah and the Quran. We have seen innocent human beings beheaded, set on fire, drowned, sold into sexual slavery and slaughtered along with the destruction of homes, villages, religious artifacts and anything that represents God-fearing or law-abiding, civilization. Yet with all these abominable acts of destruction, Obamaman and Monaco girl are determined to protect the rights of these barbarians even if it means the destruction of civilization right here at home in the United States. Although these terrorists do not see the rights of others as a viable option, Obamaman is determined to offer them the very rights they deny others. Although these evil doers would never allow the deniers of the twisted Allah Diety to escape torture or death, Obamaman is determined to release these barbarians and enemies of the globe back into civilization, while demonizing those who dare to extract and unveil their evil plans of destruction. Obamaman and Mococo girl will do whatever is necessary to protect the ever-growing power of the Dark Side.

Obamaman will use his assigned weapons, the pen and the phone, to follow in the footsteps of the enemy he protects….do what you want, regardless of the rule of law, against the wishes of the people, to achieve the final ends…the emasculation and termination of the Force in the spread of democracy around the globe, the purposeful illegal infiltration of evil doers and the continued dismantling of the very Nation that has represented truth, liberty and justice for all.

If Obamaman is unable to complete his mission, he is determined to hand over his weapons of destruction, the nefarious pen and phone, to the next evil doers groomed by the mutated liberal nation of Democrats,  ….Calamitous Clinton and Socialist Sanders….each who have sworn their allegiance to the Dark Side, by lying, corrupting and distorting the truth, breaking the law, demonizing, regulating and obstructing the free enterprise system into oblivion, while distracting the masses with promises of free stuff.

Will the Dark Side be able to complete their mission of fundamentally transforming the Force of Good, or will the Force be able to destroy the cancer of the Dark Side that has been growing by leaps and bounds, fed by Obamaman and his castle of evil transformers?

We must all get out our light sabers and commit to a fight at the polls, as only the elections of 2016 will determine our fate.

Obama Shuts Down Terrorist Investigations Calling It Racial Profiling.

shutterstock_84125155

A former employee of Homeland security is blowing the whistle on Homeland Security. He claims political correctness and the Obama Administration is preventing  Homeland Security from investigating terrorist organizations. Why would political correctness stop the investigation of potential terrorists? This administration calls it profiling and discrimination against Muslims.

In a speech after the San Bernadino attacks, President Obama made a speech citing,

“We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam….If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate….. it is the responsibility of all Americans — of every faith — to reject discrimination.  It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country.  It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim Americans should somehow be treated differently.”  

These words from our President sound reasonable. However, when the same administration defies reason by shutting down terrorist investigations by Homeland Security, because he feels it profiles Muslims, then you must ask yourself whether he is acting in the true interest of the United States and it people. Has political correctness taken over common sense and trumped our safety? At what point does the personal feelings of a group of terrorists become less important than the slaughter of innocent Americans going about their daily lives.

In a recent report on the Kelly File, the facts about political correctness and its negative effects into the investigation of radical Islamic terrorism was revealed.

[Philip Haney’s job with HSA was to investigate individuals with suspected radicalized ties to terrorism. He had received a commendation letter for successfully tracking down 300 terrorists. When he noticed a trend of people with radicalized ties coming into the United States, he began looking into a collection of global networks that were infiltrating radical Islamists into the U.S. A year into the investigation, he was visited by the State Department and the Homeland Security Civil Rights Division.  They said tracking these group and individuals was problematic because they were Islamic groups and it was considered profiling. A memo was sent out denying any investigation tied to Islamic groups. As a result, his investigation was shut down.  Sixty seven of his records were deleted. Among those records were investigations into the mosque in San Bernadino which was tied to Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, responsible for the terrorist attacks in the same city. Haney said if his work had continued he may have been able to thwart the attack in San Bernadino.  A year ago he notified Congress and Department of Homeland Security about these issues, yet the investigation was not re-opened and the HSA retaliated by pulling him from his duties and revoking his security clearance.]

Under the Obama administration, we have seen the dismantling of intelligence in Iraq, an executive order banning CIA “enhanced interrogations” and the closing of “black Sites.  Under the Bush Administration, three suspected terrorsts were waterboarded and as a result divulged information on other terrorists responsible for  the 2002 bombings in Bali and on Al Qaeda leaders. While over 100 prisoners released from Guantanamo Bay have gone back to terrorism, President Obama is still determined to release the remaining prisoners and close Gitmo. Should the United States continue to “play by the rules” when our enemies refuse to do the same?

As all Americans have witnessed of late, President Obama has no problem working up a sweat over the gun rights of American citizens and has promised to pass, by executive order, strict gun laws bypassing Congress and our Constitutional rights. Still at the forefront is the administration’s view that Global warming is our biggest national security threat, and along with Bernie Sanders, and other Democrats actually believe that climate change is the main cause of terrorism today.

The real question is why President Obama has no problems calling out lawful gun owning Americans but still refuses to link self-professed Islamic terrorism to Islam. Now, he has gone so far as to shut down actual successful terrorist investigations because they happen to involve radical Islamic Muslims and calls it profiling. God help us all!

Clearly The Pot Is Calling The Kettle Black!

88aa5a9708fe10faa3529b8420fc07aa

A Federal judge, James E. Shadid, a nominee of the Obama administration and the only Arab Federal judge in Illinois, was lucky enough to draw a case involving religious discrimination against Muslims.

Two Muslim drivers, hired by Star Transport, were fired for refusing  to transport alcohol as part of their job, and as a result were fired. They then sued the company for religious discrimination, supported by the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) and won a $240,000 settlement.

The question is not whether they were aware of the fact that Star Transport distributed alcohol, or whether or not there were alternate routes that did not involve alcohol. the real question is why the Obama administration supported this law suit?

We have seen over the past months, Christians persecuted and financially punished for religious objections involving marriage licenses and wedding cakes. When Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples citing religious beliefs, she was sued by the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) on behalf of all homosexuals. As a result, Judge Steven L. Bunning ordered Davis to issue the marriage licenses, threatening to hold her in contempt resulting in possible jail time and monetary fines. In the end, the court released its opinion, leaving Davis with the option of resigning her office, finding a compromise or being held in contempt of court.

The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry awarded $135,ooo to Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, a lesbian couple, in a law suit filed by them against a Christian mom and pop bakery who refused to bake their wedding cake because of religious beliefs. A Lakewood bakery in Colorado experienced two protests, a Facebook driven boycott and a discrimination complaint from Attorney General Eric Holder , for refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple because of their religious beliefs. This was also followed by the same results in cases in Gortz Haus,  Iowa,  Fleur Cakes in Oregon,  Victoria’s Cake Cottage, Iowa, Masterpeice Cakeshop, Colorado, as well as many others. A Methodist owned event venue in New Jersey lost its state tax exemption and is currently being sued for refusing to host a gay wedding in 2007. Even religious institutions are not allowed to make decisions based on their religious doctrines and beliefs.

In Houston the mayor, Annise Parker, issued subpoenas, demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons involving homosexuality, gender identity or the fact that she, herself, was a lesbian. If they failed to turn them over, she would hold them in contempt of court.

The Obama administration’s attorney admitted that the “right” to same-sex marriage as determined by the Supreme Court, would result in the loss of tax exempt status of anyone or any religious institution who refuses to acquiesce.

“The tax-exempt status of churches which stick with their traditional beliefs on marriage in the wake of such a ruling won’t be an “issue” for the left. Instead, their elimination will become a goal.” (Tom Blumer @ Newsbusters)

Recently, a flight attendant, Charee Stanley,  who converted to Islam after taking the job, refused to serve alcohol on a flight and was placed on administrative leave, by her employer. In response, Mrs. Stanley said,

“I don’t think that I should have to choose between practicing my religion properly or earning a living,” Stanley said. “I shouldn’t have to choose between one or the other, because they’re both important.”

When comparing the Davis and Stanley cases, we see Kim Davis became and remains the target of attacks and ridicule by Obama, Democrats and the mainstream media all while Mrs. Stanley is celebrated as a victim for hers.

President Obama  recently spoke at a Democratic LGBT gala and made it clear that the United States is a country where religious freedom is embraced and tradition is respected, but at the same time stated,

“We also have to say clearly that our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.”

Has the United States now become a place where ones constitutional rights are realized on the backs of other’s religious rights? Will the Obama administration and Democrats continue to teeter back and forth on the “rule of law,” as it pertains to their agenda?

How can the administration stand up for the religious rights of Muslims while persecuting Christians for their religious beliefs? Obviously, Obama and Democrats have become the pot calling the kettle black!

Obama’s Political Correctness Now Okays Child Rape!

images-2

 

Is this really the United States we were meant to be? I find the path in which we are headed becomes more perverse everyday I read the news.  The latest? A Green Beret is dismissed from the Army because he confronted a child rapist in Afghanistan! Since when does the United States accept the rape of children during war-time an acceptable activity? What if the activity is happening on military bases?

The New York Times published a piece detailing how United States soldiers have been instructed to ignore the sexual rape and abuse of Afghan boys because “it’s their culture.” Soldiers have been told they will be punished and/or discharged for stopping a sexual assault on a child while in Afghanistan.  Charles Martland, a decorated Green Beret was kicked out of Special Forces because he came to the defense of a child and his mother after the boy was raped and the mother beat up for reporting the crime.

As reported in the New York Times piece,

““The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights,” said Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who beat up an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave. “But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.”

The policy of instructing soldiers to ignore child sexual abuse by their Afghan allies is coming under new scrutiny, particularly as it emerges that service members like Captain Quinn have faced discipline, even career ruin, for disobeying it.

After the beating, the Army relieved Captain Quinn of his command and pulled him from Afghanistan. He has since left the military.”

It has been tough going for troops since President Obama took office. Not only have troops been told to look the other way when children are brutally raped, the Rules of engagement, which were changed and enacted by President Obama in 2009, have been blamed for the increase in casualties, which have more than doubled since the Democrat took office.

It is no accident nor a coincidence that from January 2009 to August of 2010, coinciding with the Obama/McChrystal radical change of the ROE, casualties more than doubled,” Simmons went on. “The carnage will certainly continue as the already fragile and ineffective [rules] have been further weakened by the Obama administration as if they were playground rules.”

A new Congressional report is also showing that the United States is losing the battle against stopping the flow of foreign fighters leaving the US to join ISIS. The report says that  in the last 9 months over 7000 foreign fighters have joined ISIS in their fight with more than 250 Americans joining their ranks as well. What is the administration doing to stop these fighters from being trained by terrorists then returning to the United States? A Congressional task force said,

“The fighters pose “a triple threat,” the group wrote in a summary of its findings: “they strengthen terrorist groups, incite others back home to conduct attacks, and can return themselves to launch acts of terror.””

Because the United States is fighting a war against Islamic terrorism, our government has become more politically correct in regards to Muslims and are now changing our very laws to accommodate them.  New York public schools, funded by taxpayers, will now close their doors in observance of the Muslim Holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. New York has been joined by Vermont, Massachusetts, Michigan and New Jersey.

Parents across the country have become outraged at the public school system which has made exceptions for the teaching of Islam within our classrooms.

This has happened while the same public school systems have now opted to eliminate all mention of Christmas and Rash Hashana from school calendars.

President Obama says we must embrace the cultures of Islam here in the United Stares and that the “future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” However, if, as a result,  we must turn our heads at the rape of children because it is just part of their culture….or we must accept the rape and abuse of young girls who are forced to marry before they even reach their teens because it is a part of their culture…if Islam demands the death of gays and the stoning of women…..then I choose not to embrace these cultures.

“Will Obama’s Legacy will be World War III”

Untitled-1

 

 

Obama made, yet, another speech yesterday. but what made this one different from the rest? This one will go down in history as the United States’ surrender to terrorism. If we have not been destroyed by nuclear bombs, there is no doubt future generations will be studying this speech and drawing parallels to the Munich Agreement, which is regarded as a failed act of appeasement by Britain and France to Germany and Adolph Hitler, a mistake  which led to the beginning of World War II.

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who surrendered the agreement with Hitler claimed,

“My objective is peace in Europe,  this trip is the way to that peace.”

At this meeting, Adolph Hitler deceived, lied and manipulated the British leader into believing that bending to his will would spare Britain and France from a war that were not prepared to fight. During these negotiations, Hitler promised Chamberlain that he would refrain from military action, yet secretly he continued to plan his attack militarily. The sacrifice in this agreement? Czechoslovakia, an ally of Britain and France, abandoned by them to appease Hitler. As Chamberlain proclaimed he had secured “peace in our time,” World War II began.

Is this story beginning to sound familiar? Let’s look at the players in this charade.

Adolph Hitler played by Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of Iran

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain played by Barack Obama

Czechoslovakia played by Israel.

In his speech yesterday, Obama did make one statement of truth,

“Among U.S. policymakers, there’s never been disagreement on the danger posed by an Iranian nuclear bomb. Democrats and Republicans alike have recognized that it would spark an arms race in the world’s most unstable region and turn every crisis into a potential nuclear showdown. It would embolden terrorist groups like Hezbollah and pose an unacceptable risk to Israel, which Iranian leaders have repeatedly threatened to destroy. More broadly, it could unravel the global commitment to nonproliferation that the world has done so much to defend.”

What about this statement?

“Iran will not enrich uranium…..for at least 15 years.”

There is that 15 year limit again. What happens after 15 years?

“Before Congress even read it, a majority of Republicans declared their virulent opposition. Lobbyists and pundits were suddenly transformed into armchair nuclear scientists…”

This a statement from the community organizer who graduated from Harvard with a degree in Constitutional law but has absolutely no understanding of the Constitution he has continually disregarded. But, he and John Kerry are indeed nuclear scientists.

President Obama further stated that if Republicans were to “repeat these arguments long enough, they would get some traction.”

This is obviously a theory he understands and uses daily…..say it enough and it will become truth. (If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor).

“If there is a reason for inspecting a suspicious undeclared site anywhere in Iran, inspectors can get access with as little as 24 hours”

Now wait for it……wait…..then he says,

“And while the process for resolving a dispute about access can take up to 24 days…we will be watching….”

So there goes the 24 hour claim.

“It is true that some of the limitations regarding Iran’s peaceful program last only 15 years, but that’s how arms control agreements work….”

“It is true that IF Iran lives up to its commitments, it WILL gain access to roughly $56 BILLION of its own money….”

“Our best analysts expect the bulk of this revenue to go into spending that improves the economy and benefits the lives of the Iranian people.”

And I have some swamp land in Florida for sale.

“Now this is not to say that sanctions relief will provide no benefit to Iran’s military. Let’s stipulate that some of that money will flow to activities that we object to.”

“…Iran supports terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. It supports proxy groups that threaten our interests and the interests of our allies, including proxy groups who killed our troops in Iraq.” 

and while Obama strongly pushes this deal he says,

“The truth is that Iran has always found a way to fund these efforts, and whatever benefit Iran my claim from sanctions relief pales in comparison to the danger it could pose with a nuclear weapon.”

If Iran has always found a way to fund its terrorist efforts, why would anyone believe they will agree to stop their pursuit of Nuclear weapons?

“And by the way, such a strategy also helps us effectively confront the immediate and lethal threat posed by ISIL.”

Really? I am confused as to what this has to do with our non strategy on ISIL.

And then the real kicker…

“It’s those hardliners chanting “Death to America” who have been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican Caucus.”

Did he really just compare Republicans to the Iranians chanting “Death to America?” Is this really the decorum of a sitting President of the Free World? Although we have all become accustomed to his nonstop demonization of one American group or another in every one of his speeches, this takes the cake.

Then the best lie yet….

“….and a more understandable motivation behind the opposition of this deal….a sincere affinity for our friend and ally Israel. An affinity that , as someone who has been a stalwart friend to Israel throughout my career, I deeply share.”

What?  From the man who has racked up a large list of offensive comments and behaviors towards Benjamin Netanyahu, here are just a few.

  • Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family.
  • He has taken almost every opportunity to appease Tehran since it came to office, and has been extremely slow to respond to massive human rights violations by the Iranian regime, including the beating, rape and murder of pro-democracy protesters.
  • President Obama condemned Holocaust denial in the Middle East, but compared the murder of six million Jews during World War Two to the “occupation” of the Palestinian territories, in a disturbing example of moral equivalence:
  • In a speech to the UN General Assembly, Obama stated, “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” He also lambasted the Israeli “occupation”, and drew a connection between rocket attacks on Israeli civilians with living conditions in Gaza.
  • In an interview, a White House official calls Netanyahu a “chickenshit.”

I would not call this a stalwart friendship with Israel. It has become painfully obvious to most Americans that President Obama no longer supports Israel, our one democratic ally in the middle east, yet has chosen to cuddle up with and appease our enemies.

Can we talk about what Obama did not say in his speech? How about the fact that the United States, with taxpayer dollars, will be offering Iran a $150 BILLION signing bonus? Exactly where is that money coming from? Yes…the U.S. taxpayer.

Back in April of this year, President Obama finally relented, after intense pressure by both Republicans and Democrats alike, to give Congress a voice on the proposed nuclear deal with Iran. The bill, passed in the Senate, requires the President to give Congress 60 days to review the deal and take a vote.

However, Secretary of State John Kerry claims the deal with Iran is NOT a treaty because he feels  getting consent from the U.S. Senate would “become physically impossible.”

When asked by Democrat Brad Sherman (CA), if the White House would comply with the law if the Senate were to override a veto on the deal with Iran, John Kerry replied,

“I will need to consult with President Obama before answering such a question.”

As we have all seen during Obama’s tenure as President, he has refused to follow the rule of law and decided which laws to enforce based on his personal feelings and how it supports his agenda to fundamentally change the United States.

In a step that has become typically Obama style, the president immediately went to the United Nations for a vote on the Iran deal realizing he did not have support from either Democrats or Republicans.  Again, a President who refuses to listen to the will of the people or their representatives in making major decisions that will affect the United States and generations to come. The standard reply? Yes I will follow the rule of law and listen to the representatives of the people as our Constitution demands, unless of course they don’t vote my way.

President Obama has become so determined to define his legacy that he is willing to sacrifice the American people, their children and their grandchildren, regardless of the outcome.

Like Prime Minister Chamberlain in his so-called deal with Hitler, the world suffered the consequences and no doubt, if this deal is forced through by the Obama regime, his legacy will not doubt, be World War III.

The United States Under Obama: A Criminal Haven For Our Enemies!

shutterstock_175527044

 

President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry agreed and signed a deal with Iran. Although just yesterday, Iran citizens and their leader were burning the American flag and shouting death to America and death to Israel. Why would our President and Secretary of State, who are in charge of protecting the American citizens agree to such a bad deal? Because they believe,

“Iran has the right to a peaceful Nuclear program”- John Kerry

We have seen this administration literally slam the only democratic country in the Middle East, and our ally, Israel. Officials in the White House have called Netanyahu a “chickenshit,” used taxpayer dollars to oust Netanyahu out of office, and even refused to meet with him while visiting the United States.  However, while Iran screams death to America and Israel, our fearless leader signs a nuclear deal with Iran that literally sets them up to have Nuclear bombs within 5-15 years.  Nuclear bombs that could literally destroy Israel and the United States and end the very lives of our children and grandchildren.

Back on the home front, the Obama administration has refused to enforce our immigration laws and as a result, taxpayers on the hook for homes, food, education, and healthcare for all illegals and their families residing in the United States. Our school system is overcrowded, communities have exceeded budget constraints and are going broke trying to educate and pay for the millions of dollars required to house and educate illegals within our communities.  Local governments were never consulted before planes, trains and automobiles rolled into their towns releasing illegals into their communities. All under the blanket of protection of President Obama.

This administration has also released hundreds of thousands of illegal criminals back into our communities with devastating results. Thousands of Americans have been killed because of the release of these criminals. The most recent being Kate Steinle, 31 and an expectant mother was gunned down by an illegal immigrant felon who had been deported 6 times for criminal behavior. A 13 year old girl was kidnapped and sexually assaulted by an  illegal in Florida. Sabine Durden’s son Dominic was killed by a drunk driver, also an illegal alien. The families of Jamiel Shaw Jr., Don Rosenberg, Lupe Moreno, and Brenda Sparks, are just a few of the other families that have lost loved ones because of the actions of illegals in the United States.  Yet President Obama has remained silent about these deaths all while stepping up to the plate and attending funerals of criminals killed by police, hyped up by the press as white on black hate crimes.

Obama wasted no time holding a press conference claiming Treyvon Martin could have been his son before the trial had even begun in the Zimmerman case. He wasted no time in sending three White House officials to attend Michael Brown’s funeral, who was killed while trying to take a police officer’s gun after attempting to rob a convenient store. That was three more than were sent to attend former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year and none were sent to the funeral for Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, the highest-ranking U.S. military officer killed in combat since the Vietnam War.  The Obama administration devoted considerable resources to the Michael Brown shooting and sent Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson, as well as dozens of investigators prior to any of the facts being revealed. However, the Obama administration refuses to comment or offer condolences to the family of  Kathryn Steinle, whose death was a direct result of Obama’s refusal to enforce United States deportation laws.  Although the White House claims it does not have the time to comment on all victims of crimes, Obama found ample time to meet with four convicted drug felons in order to support his release of 45 prisoners. And let us not forget the phone call he made to Sandra Fluke to make sure she was okay after negative comments were made regarding her snit fit over a Catholic University refusing to pay for her birth control.

How can any of us forget President Obama’s condescending comments about Republicans who were demanding our border be secure? President Barack Obama noted the steps taken by his administration to strengthen border security, but said Republicans in Congress were never satisfied and mocked that they will want a “higher fence” and then “a moat,” and then “alligators in the moat.”They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

However, if our borders were, in fact, secure, as Obama claims, how did all these convicted felons return to the United States after being deported time after time after time? Now add insult to injury, Democrats are pushing to not only give driver’s licenses to illegals but the right to vote in our local and national elections. Are the lives of American citizens really expendable in order for Democrats to gain more votes?

At what point will the President of the United States start  taking the necessary steps to protect the citizens of the United States, and our sovereignty? At what point will our Congress take the necessary steps to stop the actions of Obama while he does everything within his power to protect, support and empower our enemies?

Where Does The Buck Really Stop?

pointy

 

It has recently been reported that illegals have been charged in over 120 murders. The finger of blame is being pointed at Homeland Security and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)  officers. However, the blame lays squarely on President Obama’s desk.

As reported in the Washington Times,

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director, Sarah R. Saldana said her officers cannot peer into the hearts of illegal immigrants to predict who the worst actors are.”

However, it was reported earlier that ICE, in fact, released 36,000 convicted criminals in 2013 and another 30,000 in 2014. These releases included thousands who already had serious homicide, rape, kidnapping, drug trafficking or drunken driving charges on their records. Is there really any surprise that these released illegal criminals would commit further crimes within our communities?

“Thats a lot of people who have been killed, that’s a lot of families who’ve lost loved ones,” said Rep. Ron DeSantis, Florida Republican. He further demanded to know if anyone’s been fired over their decision making on releases. “Not yet,” Ms. Saldana replied.

The White House claims it is cracking down on and deporting illegal felons, as stated on the White House website,

“These executive actions crack down on illegal immigration at the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal background check and pay their fair share of taxes as they register to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.”

But who can we really look to for the bungled releases of these criminals into our communities? Who can we really look to for the refusal to enforce the United States Immigration laws? President Obama has time after time, decided on his own, that he has the ultimate power to decide who will and will not be allowed into our country, despite what our laws demand. Last year Obama ordered the end of “Secure Communities Program,” as part of his executive action on immigration.

The Times further reported that “U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen was shocked to learn that three year work permits and stays of deportation were being handed out for more than three months despite the Obama administration leading him to believe that no part of the expanded amnesty was in effect. It was also found that not only had work permits been handed out, but that the agency approved application even after the Judge issued an injunction in February.”

Based on an agreement reached in Congress in 2011, President Obama said the fence along the border of Mexico is “now basically complete.” In a speech on May 10, 2011 in El Paso, her further said,

“We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. All the stuff they asked for, we’ve done. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I’ve got to say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goals posts on us one more time. They’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

In response, Senator De Mint replied,

“The Obama administration has not done its job to finish the border fence that is a critical part of keeping Americans safe and stopping illegal immigration. Five years ago, legislation was passed to build a 700-mile double layer border fence along the southwest border. This is a promise that has not been kept. Today, according to the staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5% of the double layer fencing is complete, only 36.1 miles.”

Yet after, once again, mocking Republicans for insisting that our borders be secured, Obama was at the helm when thousands and thousands rushed the border last summer.

When agents at the border asked over 200 non-Mexican immigrants why they were entering into the United States, 95% said they headed to the U.S because they had been told they could get a free pass simply by showing up at the border. A large percentage also said that their family members in the US told them to travel immediately because the government was issuing immigration passes until the end of June. These children and adults are not scaling the fences, they are surrendering to border control agents, because they know they will not be turned away.  They are all giving the same answer, “if you go down there, the chances of you getting sent back or deported to your native country are slim to none.” “It’s a free ticket.”  “Obama will never deport us and we can receive welfare for life. ”

It turns out they had it right, as Obama contracted not only baby sitters for the summer rush back in January of 2014, but contracted charter flights and bus transportation to move the illegals into communities around the Nation. They were supplied with healthcare, homes, education and food at the expense of the American Taxpayer. Add insult to injury, taxpayer dollars were also used to provide free lawyers and paralegal services to those illegally crossing the border.

Who can forget Vice President Biden saying,

“The U.S. needs a constant, unrelenting stream of new immigrants to buttress the national economy.”

According to the Center for Immigration Studies,

“Thirteen years after welfare reform, the share of immigrant-headed households (legal and illegal) with a child (under age 18) using at least one welfare program continues to be very high. This is partly due to the large share of immigrants with low levels of education and their resulting low incomes — not their legal status or an unwillingness to work. The major welfare programs examined in this report include cash assistance, food assistance, Medicaid, and public and subsidized housing.”

Now, the Obama Administration is giving illegal immigrants billions in tax credits, even in years when they did not work. The Treasury Department’s Inspector General determined that $4.2 billion was paid in 2010, up from less than $1 billion in 2005 to individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States. Leading Democrats are resisting a bill that would stop any future payments.

So when we continue to see American citizens murdered and subjected to criminal acts by illegal immigrants within our borders, we only have one place to look, the White House. Whether Obama agrees or not, the buck stops at his desk.

The official timeline that outlines  Obamas destruction of immigration laws.

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?

Americans Held To Different Rule Of Law Than Our Elected Officials!

imagesWhat would happen to any American citizen if their computer servers were subpoenaed and they responded by destroying them?  Do you think jail time would be a potential outcome?  Obviously, Hillary Clinton believes she lives by a different “rule of law” than the average American.  These are the very people who decide what the rule of law will be and obviously, who will be required to live by them.  As we have seen year after year, and term after term, our law makers and our president live by a completely different set of rules than the American citizens.

The Benghazi committee headed by Senator Trey Gowdy, released this statement:

“After seeking and receiving a two-week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis.”

“We learned today, from her attorney, Secretary Clinton unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server. While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department. “‘

In July of 1992, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act was put into law, to address corporate responsibility and accountability, and also addressed destruction of evidence.

“With the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which President Bush labeled as “the most far-reaching reforms of American business practices since the time of Franklin Delano Roosevelt,” and the increased commitment of prosecutors to stamp out corporate fraud, today’s company executives have more legal requirements and challenges to meet than they have ever faced in the past. In particular, 18 U.S.C. § 1519 takes aim at individuals who obstruct justice by destroying or altering documents in an attempt to thwart criminal and other government investigations or inquiries.”

The institution of this law allows for more strict enforcement and punishment of individuals who destroy evidence during an investigation or criminal case, and punishes those who destroy evidence under even the “contemplation” of an investigation.

“The new provisions reach those who destroy documents merely “in contemplation” of an investigation or “any matter” within the jurisdiction of a federal agency. Moreover, destruction of documents under § 1519 contains a maximum sentence of twenty years, at least twice what could be attained under the previous statutory scheme.”

Based on this law, the average American citizen can be sentenced to prison for destroying evidence even when the government is merely thinking about investigating them or their company. Martha Stewart was sent to jail under the provisions of this law. So it appears as though Hillary Clinton has broken the law and should be held accountable. This means jail time.  But will she be punished as any other American would be?  Only time will tell if the powers at be will demand she follow the rule of law or if, once again, the Clintons and everyone else on the Hill will be held under different  standards than the rest of us.

Although Hillary Clinton claimed she refused to use her government server because she wanted to avoid   carrying two different phones,  just weeks before in an interview, she admitted to having an iPhone, a blackberry and a iPad.

Clinton said, during her press conference at the UN,

“The vast majority of my work emails went to government employees at their government addresses, which meant they were captured and preserved immediately on the system at the State Department.”

Yet it was discovered that “Hillary Clinton emailed with her top advisers at the State Department about the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya on their own personal emails,” as reported by The New York Times.

During her press conference at the UN, Clinton said,

“The server contains personal communications from my husband and me, and I believe I have met all of my responsibilities and the server will remain private and I think that the State Department will be able, over time, to release all of the records that were provided. “

When asked about emails, Bill Clinton stated he only sent two emails his entire time in office, one of them going to John Glenn in 1998 and the other went to U.S. troops serving in the Adriatic. He said he still does not use email today.

Questions still remain regarding the legality of Hillary Clinton’s deletion of her server.  Americans have to ask themselves if this is the person that should be running for president of the United States? We have certainly seen the negative results of a “lack of transparency” within the Obama administration.

The American people are owed the truth and should have access to the communications from and between our elected officials. When we begin to allow the laws to be manipulated by those in power, while we are held to task, we certainly have graduated from the “elected over the electorate to the ruling over the ruled”- Edward Snowden.

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

shutterstock_146004131 (1)

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“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….

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!!

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.

Obama, Amnesty, Lies and the November Elections!

 

images

As many times as President Obama has promised  immigration reform in return for the 67% and 71% of the Hispanic vote he received in his 2008 and 2012 bid for the White House, what has he actually achieved?  He has blamed House Republicans for the lack of reform all while refusing to admit that his commitment to securing our borders, would be the first step in actually gaining bipartisan support for reform.  Although a formal immigration reform bill has not been passed, over the past 6 years, President Obama has fundamentally and systematically destroyed U.S. laws on deportation and immigration. He has encouraged illegals to come into the country, sign up for government entitlement programs funded by taxpayers, all while demonizing and retaliating against any state that enforces immigration laws. He has consistently lied and misled the American people, while he has removed any and all barriers at our borders. Many Americans, who have been in favor of immigration reform, have now tired of the lack of legal ramifications for those crossing our borders and hiding within the system, while freely partaking of public services that we, as Americans, have paid for and must jump through hoops ourselves in order to receive. If the country wants immigration reform, they have to look no further than the oval office for causing the political stalemate that has stymied all efforts to resolve the issue.

Below, you will find a timeline that shows how President Obama has not only disregarded our current deportation and immigration laws, but has systematically opened up our borders and refused to deport any illegals currently in the US.  In this day of terrorist threats, you must ask the question, why is our back door wide open to those whose life’s purpose is to destroy us?

I know the article is long, but I can assure you, if you read the entire timeline, you will be fully informed and no doubt appalled at the deception that has been played out at the expense and detriment of the American citizens and the United States. (Senator Jeff Sessions has provided the majority of the timeline).

 

President Obama gave a speech on Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Obama: “To begin with, our borders have been porous for decades.  Obviously, the problem is greatest along our Southern border, but it’s not restricted to that part of the country.  In fact, because we don’t do a very good job of tracking who comes in and out of the country as visitors, large numbers avoid immigration laws simply by over-staying their visas.”

“More fundamentally, the presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are going through the process of immigrating legally.  Indeed, after years of patchwork fixes and ill-conceived revisions, the legal immigration system is as broken as the borders.”

 

March 8 2010:  ICE (U.S Immigration and Custom Enforcement)  Inflates Deportation Statistics According to the Washington Post: “Months after reporting that the number of illegal immigrants removed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement increased 47 percent during President Obama’s first year in office, the Department of Homeland Security on Monday corrected the record, saying the actual increase in those deported and ‘voluntary departures’ was 5 percent.”

June 18, 2010: Obama Administration Sues Arizona over Immigration Enforcement Law. 

 Obama:  “For example, there are those in the immigrants’ rights community who have argued passionately that we should simply provide those who are [here] illegally with legal status, or at least ignore the laws on the books and put an end to deportation until we have better laws.  And often this argument is framed in moral terms:  Why should we punish people who are just trying to earn a living? I recognize the sense of compassion that drives this argument, but I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair.  It would suggest to those thinking about coming here illegally that there will be no repercussions for such a decision.  And this could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration.  And it would also ignore the millions of people around the world who are waiting in line to come here legally.” 

July 30, 2010: In a memo to agency director Alejandro Mayorkas,  the Obama Administration details the plan to bypass Congress and grant amnesty by executive fiat.

October 17, 2010:  The administration dismissed hundreds of deportation cases. Up 700% between July and August 2010. 

Obama: “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship.  And no matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these laws should be held accountable.”

August 24, 2010: The Houston Chronicle reported that DHS had begun “systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss those filed against suspected illegal immigrants without serious criminal records.”

February 15, 2011: DHS Ignores Mandate To Maintain Operational Control of the Border.  The Government Accountability Office announces that U.S. Customs and Border Protection maintains only 69 of the roughly 4,000 miles along the northern border and only 873 of the almost 2,000 miles along the southwestern border. Only 33.7 miles of the 700 miles of fence mandated by the Secure Fence Act of 2006 had been completed by that time. Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul responded to the President’s claim, stating “the border is not secure and it has never been more violent or dangerous.”

 Obama: “We have more boots on the ground on the Southwest border than at any time in our history.  We doubled the personnel assigned to Border Enforcement Security Task Forces.  We tripled the number of intelligence analysts along the border.  For the first time, we’ve begun screening 100 percent of southbound rail shipments.  And as a result, we’re seizing more illegal guns, cash and drugs than in years past.  Contrary to some of the reports that you see, crime along the border is down.  And statistics collected by Customs and Border Protection reflect a significant reduction in the number of people trying to cross the border illegally.”  “So the bottom line is this:  The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.”

March 16, 2010:  DHS Announces Termination of Funding for Virtual Fence Along the Southwestern Border

 Obama:But our borders are just too vast for us to be able to solve the problem only with fences and border patrols.  It won’t work.  Our borders will not be secure as long as our limited resources are devoted to not only stopping gangs and potential terrorists, but also the hundreds of thousands who attempt to cross each year simply to find work.” 

Obama:That’s why businesses must be held accountable if they break the law by deliberately hiring and exploiting undocumented workers.  We’ve already begun to step up enforcement against the worst workplace offenders.  And we’re implementing and improving a system to give employers a reliable way to verify that their employees are here legally. But we need to do more.  We cannot continue just to look the other way as a significant portion of our economy operates outside the law.  It breeds abuse and bad practices.  It punishes employers who act responsibly and undercuts American workers.”

January 2009: Obama Administration Ends Worksite Enforcement Actions.  In early 2009,  ICE executed a raid (initiated and planned under the Bush administration) on an engine machine shop in Bellingham, Washington, detaining 28 illegal immigrants who were using fake Social Security numbers and identity documents. Shortly thereafter, pro-amnesty groups criticized the Administration for enforcing the law. An unnamed DHS official was quoted in the Washington Times as saying, “the Secretary is not happy about it and this is not her policy.” Instead of enforcing the law, the Secretary investigated the ICE agents for simply doing their duty. Esther Olavarria, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, said on a call with employers and pro-amnesty groups that “we’re not doing raids or audits under this administration.”

Obama: “So, we have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I suspect there will be those who will try to move the goal posts one more time. They’ll say we need to triple the border patrol. Or quadruple the border patrol. They’ll say we need a higher fence to support reform. Maybe they’ll say we need a moat. Or alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

June 1, 2011: Obama Administration Ignores New York’s Refusal to Cooperate with Federal Immigration Agents.  

 March – June 2011: ICE Director Morton outlines new enforcement priorities, despite having no legal or congressional authority to do so, he tells police to refrain from enforcing the law against individuals engaging in protests, if they are here illegally.

June 23, 2011: ICE Union Outraged Over Morton Administrative Amnesty Memos. The ICE union issued a press release expressing outrage over Director Morton’s actions, stating: “Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.” “have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers. “the result is a means for every person here illegally to avoid arrest or detention, as officers we will never know who we can or cannot arrest.” The release concluded: “we are asking everyone to please email or call your Congressman and Senators immediately and ask them to help stop what’s happening at ICE, we desperately need your help.”

Obama: “Today, there are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.  But they’ve broken the rules, and have cut in front of the line. And the truth is, the presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are trying to immigrate legally.”

December 29, 2011: ICE Creates 24-Hotline for Illegal Immigrant Detainees. ICE announced a new 24-hour hotline for illegal immigrant detainees to ensure that they “are made aware of their rights.” The hotline is to be staffed by the Law Enforcement Support Center, which ICE had previously claimed was too understaffed to respond to local law enforcement trying to verify immigration status.

January 5, 2012: DHS Stops Secure Communities in Alabama in Retaliation for State Immigration Enforcement Law.

Obama: “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”

January 6, 2012: USCIS Announces Proposal To Permit an Entire Segment of Illegal Immigrant Population To Remain in the U.S. USCIS announced a proposed rule to allow the illegal immigrant relatives of U.S. citizens to apply for waivers to remain in U.S., thereby avoiding the law that requires them to return to their home countries and apply for a waiver. USCIS Director Mayorkas emphasized they would also consider expanding the waiver to illegal immigrant relatives of green card holders and clarified that even illegal immigrants in deportation proceedings  are  eligible for these waivers.  USCIS issued field guidance for the program, instructing USCIS officers that an applicant with a criminal history is still eligible for a waiver as long as the offense qualifies as a “petty offense” or “youthful offender” exception under the INA and is not a crime involving moral turpitude.

A large number of “children” crossing border unaccompanied are actually teenagers between 15 and 18 and some participating in gangs. The majority of illegals crossing the border carry tuberculosis, scabies and other infectious diseases. “There is really no hard stop at the border, and we have no idea health-wise what diseases are coming across,” a health official who works in the McAllen border said.  ”There’s no real medical screening either. Basically if [an illegal immigrant] tells a Border Patrol agent or law enforcement official they feel sick, or if they look sick, then they’re checked. If they don’t say anything, that’s it, they’re cleared.”

Public schools and communities are not able to handle the overcrowding and the demand on local budgets and services.

Obama:Protecting public safety and deporting dangerous criminals has been and will remain the top priority, but we are going to refocus our efforts where we can to make sure we do what it takes to keep our border secure.”

Obama: “Today, I sent a letter to congressional leaders asking that they work with me to address the urgent humanitarian challenge on the border, and support the immigration and Border Patrol agents who already apprehend and deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants every year.” 

 September, 2014: Obama administration stops prosecutions of first time illegals under “Operation Streamline.” “Operation Streamline is like one of the last strongholds we have as a deterrent. Our manpower is dwindling on a daily basis,” Worsencroft said. “The fence can only do so much.”

Obama:  “Are folks more interested in politics, or are they more interested in solving the problem? If they’re interested in solving the problem, then this can be solved. If the preference is for politics, then it won’t be solved.” 

September, 2014:   Obama administration turns blind eye to  hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens receiving free healthcare through Obamacare, while Americans are thrown off their policies.

Please find out if your State Senator or Congressman support Amnesty.  If you believe that we must secure our borders before offering another amnesty to millions of illegals, then please go to the polls and vote in November!

Divide and Conquer: A Game of Thrones?

 

img372

I recently attended my monthly book club,  which is comprised of women from differing political persuasions, including but not necessarily limited to conservatives and liberals.  We can have some interesting discussions, as you might expect, especially when the topic broaches anything political.

 

But today, in this current polarized atmosphere, what might have been interesting, informative and polite conversations that dispense at the end of the evening with the world’s problems solved, they tend to morph into disagreements and in some cases, hurt feelings, frustration and anger.

 

I have always felt that women can discuss issues, contemplate solutions and together solve just about any problem. We all have many things in common and of course as mothers and care takers, we have the ability to step back and see the path that must be taken in order to spare the lives of our children and make the world a safer place for future generations.  We are not interested in war, but would have no hesitation in stepping up to the plate if our families or our way of life were threatened. In the past, after a banner evening of solving the ills of the world, I’ve left convinced that if my book club  could rule the world; it would be a much better place. Not any longer.

 

So, what has created such a wall between us on the political front? We’ve always known differences were there, but now they’ve somehow taken root and grown into a wall of vines so thick that we are unable to see through them.  What has pushed us into our respective corners, causing a rift that cannot be resolved? What has caused such polarization?

 

I have been guilty of angry responses to angry attacks on my beliefs. Why? When you take the time to thoroughly research the facts on an issue facing the country, you expect some thoughtful discussion. You expect someone to listen before they attack or dismiss you. We cannot all take the monumental amount of time required to research each and every issue facing the United States today. Yet instead of listening to those who have some expertise on a subject and asking questions or adding additional useful information to the debate, we choose to respond with anger, shut them down or we close our minds and refuse to hear. Why? Most Americans want to discuss the state of our Union, not for political gain, monetary gain, or power, but for the simple reason that they love this country and are concerned for her future. Why are we otherwise so determined to spread the misinformation and rhetoric that is fed to us by the very politicians and media who are determined to take control of every aspect of our lives?

 

We will always have differing views as long as there are people on this planet. But why has polarization become so commonplace? I believe the situation has become formidable because of the atmosphere fabricated by the very leaders we have elected to protect us. Our leaders have irresponsibly, but very purposefully, used our emotional responses to current events against us.  Ultimately they use the disharmony they’ve created to manipulate us into playing a game they have invented where the winners have been pre-determined: them. I know it’s a cliché, but “divide and conquer” has become a reality in today’s political climate.

 

As Americans, we must be able to recognize the leaders who use polarization for their own political ends.  We must resist the urge to be manipulated and instead work towards a common goal and find solutions that make the country stronger, without demonizing those who disagree.  Don’t we all want what is best for our Country? Don’t we all want a world where our children and we are not bogged down in debt and allowed to live the lives we choose without government interference?

 

We have to recognize that politicians, special interest groups and the media have one thing on their mind: winning, power and expanding their own wallets.

We must remember that we all have differing views based on personal life experiences, therefore resulting in our belief in, or support of specific solutions that we feel or have had success in using.  We cannot only look towards those who believe as we do, but seek out those who believe differently and listen to their points of view. We must offer the opportunity for those of an opposing view to explain their position, offer the facts supporting their stance and in turn offer ours. Solutions can only be reached and supported when all opinions are heard, respected, discussed, considered, and backed by fact not political rhetoric.

Why are we so opposed to hearing the facts when they go against the very agenda that our politicians are pushing? Why do we have such blind faith in what our leaders tell us? Are their claims backed by fact or are they just using their power to further divide us on the issues in order to control us? Do our leaders have a history of lying? I think we all know the obvious answer to that question.

We have been purposefully divided by race, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference and gender.

Statistics currently show that Americans have no faith in their political leaders. So why do we continue to vote for the same representatives and allow them to dictate the rules of the game while refusing to discuss the actual facts, and enact the very solutions that will serve the general good? Why do we continue to demonize and shut down the American citizens who only want what is best for our country yet put blind faith in the leaders who go to the extreme to keep us in the dark?

Have they trained us so well, that we no longer recognize manipulation at its worse? Have they manipulated us so well that we continue to believe and allow the media to misinform the very public they vowed to inform?  The media who took an oath to provide a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues through honesty and integrity? Where is the outrage towards the lies and deceit? Where is the demand for change? Why do we allow these leaders, special interests and the media to make the rules that will ultimately cut us out of the game and result in our own demise?

Unfortunately, America has become a place of apathetic individuals easily manipulated because we have been distracted from the real issues at hand. As technologically advanced as we have become, it boggles the mind that the “masses” have time to scroll through the lives of the many on Facebook, but no time to educate themselves in the matters that will affect their lives and their children’s lives for generations to come.

When we allow politicians, special interest groups and the media to lie to the American people, create negative ads attacking honest opponents falsely, making promises they have no intention of keeping, all without consequences, the American people are the real losers.

When we allow the media to be bought, sold and controlled by one political faction, to pick and choose the stories they want to report, to omit stories that do not put their agenda in a positive light, to report the news with their own personal political slant, then the American people are the real losers.

When we allow the government to become corrupt, operate with no consequences or accountability, employ friends and supporters without adequate experience, spend our money irresponsibly, tie our hands with regulations and taxes, target those with differing views and repress our constitutional rights, then the American people are the real losers.

When we allow our educational system to expose our children to only one political philosophy, to pick and choose the history they want to teach, to suppress our freedom of speech and religion, to teach our children what to think and not how to think, the American people are the real losers.

We must recognize that in order to raise a generation of real thinkers, problem solvers, and our future leaders, we must expose them to every view, every side of the story, and allow them to decide what is best for them, their families and our Nation.  We will not raise true leaders and problem solvers by denying exposure to all the facts, ignoring history or by demonizing those with differing views.  The United States cannot remain the true example of freedom to the world or maintain our position of power when we systematically allow our government to become our jailers.

It is time for the left and the right to come together as the people of the United States against our common enemy and demand that our government hand us back the keys to the castle and take up their rightful position in servitude to the American people as our constitution demands!

“Obama’s House of Cards!”

images

Are you a fan of the Netflix Show, “House of Cards?”  I began watching the show last year, and because of my interest in politics, the show drew me in from the start.  While you are watching, you can imagine the reality this must represent on the Hill.  You can almost substitute characters on the show for their very real counterparts in DC.  I have to say that the show absolutely makes me sick, so why do I watch? On some level I guess it is entertainment, but fantasy always imitates real life and I can only hope those who watch will finally come to see the lies, self interest, back room deals, deception and manipulation that really goes on in Washington.  Are we watching Obama’s own “House of Cards” drama unfold before our very eyes.

 

I believe the current immigration situation in the United States is a real life manipulation and massive deception on the American people.  It would make a great theme to consider on “House of Cards.”

 

This “surge” at our borders has been going on for months right under President Obama’s nose. As a matter of fact, the White House actually advertised for “babysitters” to care for the expected flood of illegal children at our borders back in January, so this was obviously no surprise. The border has been easily penetrated for years and years, under Democratic and Republican presidents. As a matter of fact, amnesty has been granted 7 times, but Republican Presidents, Reagan and Bush instituted the two largest, granting amnesty to 7-15 million illegals.

 

I do have to give President Obama the overall “Care Less” award.  Why?  Because he says he is a huge supporter of Immigration Reform, yet every decision he makes, every time he ignores our laws, he is pushing the public’s hand at denying ANY form of immigration reform.  Every time he defies Congress he pushes them further and further from considering reform because Obama refuses to follow the rule of law.  He demonizes anyone who refuses to give him a free reign over immigration while he continuously refuses to protect our borders.

 

Obama claims the United States is more secure now than ever in our history.  Is this true? Currently, only 36.1 miles of the 700-mile double-tiered fence promised by the Democrats and President Obama, has been completed. Thousands of miles of border are not even patrolled due to under staffing. Does they really believe our borders are safe? Does he really think leaving the American people vulnerable to terrorists and drug cartels is keeping us safe? Does he care that parents, under the assumption that once in the states their children will be able to remain, are vulnerable to sexual attacks and trafficking as well as abuse and gang violence and recruitment? Are they being honest about the children currently crossing the borders? Would you feel any differently if you knew that the majority of the “children” that have come into our country are males between the ages of 14 and 18? How would you feel if you knew that a percentage of these “children” were MS-13 gang members? Did you know that they are still housed with the younger children and have been instructed to recruit more gang members? Are these really the “children” he is releasing in our towns and communities? Do we know whom we are handing these children over to? These so-called “foster parents,”  are also illegal and have no background information. So do we really know what is happening to these children once they are turned over? Are they really safer here than at home with their real parents?

 

He has successfully angered the American public because of his inaction on our borders. Illegals are entering the country with communicable diseases, including but not limited to tuberculosis, and being integrated into our communities and schools.  Funds to support them are being taken from American taxpayers and budgets in local communities are being stretched beyond their limits. The White House refuses to notify state government leaders of the arrival of hundreds and hundreds of illegals requiring housing and care with taxpayer dollars. Those responsible for keeping our borders secure are spending their time changing diapers and babysitting. Is this keeping our borders safe?

President Obama has refused to deport even the worst criminals that have entered our country illegally. In 2013 alone, he ordered the DHS to release 68,000 illegals with criminal convictions back into our communities. These were persons convicted of murder, rape, sexual abuse and pedophilia as well as robberies and gang violence. Why would he do that? How does that serve the American public?

 

Hispanics around the country point at Obama as the “savior” for their cause, but do they understand that he is actually the “Devil” in the details personally destroying their cause with the American public instead of doing everything possible to encourage immigration reform? Why?

 

How do legal immigrants feel about the surge at the border? They are angry. They have gone through the system legally and are now being pushed to the back of the line while illegals are granted green cards, driver’s licenses and now a possible vote? Are we rewarding illegal behavior? Will granting amnesty encourage others to cross our borders without going through the proper channels?

 

What is Mexico and Guatemala doing about this?  Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina held a press conference to announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America to cross into Mexico. They are offering a 72-hour free pass to travel through their countries to get to the border of the United States. What is President Obama doing about this? Has he expressed his outrage at this policy?  Has he told them that we will stop aid to their country if they continue this behavior? Has he told them that will even deduct the expenses we are suffering from their aid until this is stopped Why not?

 

 

Increasingly, illegals are staging protests in Washington, D.C. and around the country demanding immigration reform and rights. Are they becoming too bold considering they are actually breaking the law by even being here? And now they protest making demands?

 

In New York, Senator Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat, introduced a bill to allow illegals to vote. He is supported on this bill by Representative, Karim Camara also a Democrat.  Mayor John DeStefano, Democrat for New Haven Connecticut, is also fighting to give the vote to Illegals and is supported by Representative Juan Candelaria, Democrat. They are determined to make this a reality along with driver’s licenses, free education, instate tuition, SNAP cards, healthcare and welfare. All supplied courtesy of the American taxpayer.  How much more can we be expected to give? Why are they determined to go against even their own constituents to make this happen?

 

If we look at the last presidential election, Obama and Democrats received over 93% of the Hispanic vote. What does this mean for the next election?

 

I think we can all put together the puzzle pieces…this is all about politics as usual in Washington. If Democrats get 93% of the Hispanic vote, and they continue to demonize all other political parties or views, then who is guaranteed the Hispanic vote in the next election? What about the 11 states controlled by Democrats that have voted to get rid of the Electoral college and move to the popular vote?  What? you did not know about that? Why hasn’t the press made that a lead story? Shouldn’t the public be aware if our current voting system is being changed? Is the plan starting to make sense now? Is this scheme best for the United States and its citizens or just the Democrats?

 

How can we convince the American people to agree to immigration reform?

 

Get our economy back on track. Force Harry Reid in the Senate to put the 42 job creation bills passed by Congress up for a vote. Stop releasing dangerous illegal criminals into our communities. Deport those who break our laws by entering our borders illegally. Stop offering taxpayer dollars to support those who have broken our laws.  Shorten the waiting period for those who go through the system the proper way. But most importantly….stop lying to the American public and SECURE OUR BORDERS NOW!!!

“An Angry Republican”

iStock_000010295104_Small

I recently had someone accuse me of sounding like an “angry Republican.” As a result,  I have decided to write a response to this accusation and set the record straight!

Let’s get one thing clear….. I don’t consider myself a republican, a tea partier, or a libertarian. What I do know is that I am NOT  a racist or a flat-earther or a bigot or a terrorist, as the President of the United States has described me. I am a concerned American that believes in our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, the rule of law, the free enterprise system, a days pay for a hard days work, the three arms of government that were put into effect to keep any one from taking too much control, a valid and honest voting booth, a free press that actually reports the facts and not just political rhetoric, the sovereignty of our borders, the compassion, ingenuity and exceptionalism of the American people, who make up a country considered the melting pot and envy of the world.

 

If you still want to call me an angry republican, that is your right, because of course you have been given free speech by the blood of our Veterans, who lost their lives so you can speak your mind.

 

But, the truth is, YOU would be an angry American if you had a clue about what is really going on in this country today.  You do not have to be a Republican, a Democrat, an Independent, a Libertarian or any other party you might happen to follow, to recognize that we are being fundamentally changed, against our will, by an administration who chooses not to follow the rule of law, who ignores the very Constitution and Bill of Rights that this country was founded on, and who stands up everyday and LIES to the American people.

 

Now, I am sure I have graduated from “angry Republican” to just plain “politically incorrect.” And guess what? If you did just call me “UN PC”, then you are probably part of the problem.

 

You might be one of those people who listen to the nightly news on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or maybe even one who thinks Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are actually “real” news people and couldn’t possibly have an agenda.  You then sit back with a smug smile thinking you are informed, and even got a good laugh while getting your daily dose of the “real” news.

 

When you read facts reported by anyone in the know, because they actually do hours and hours  of research, you can smugly call them “Angry Republicans,” while you bask in your own ignorance.

 

Wake up, open your eyes and watch as the Liberal left led by their king and savior, Barack Obama, take away your rights one at a time, while you are being promised that ,

 

“This is the most transparent government in the history of the United States and that the world is less violent than it has ever been, it is healthier than it has ever been and it is more educated, better fed and more tolerant than it has ever been. That generations from now, we will all be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth.” – Barack Obama

 

And if you are truly informed and still believe that, then Barack Obama IS the savior and I am just an Angry Republican!!

“Lies; the New Truth?”

Unknown

Sandra Fluke. Who is she? Do you know what she stands for?  What do you know about her qualifications? What does she have to do with Hobby Lobby? Does she speak the truth or does she tell Lies; the new truth?

In March of 2012, Sandra Fluke was a student at Georgetown, a Jesuit university, and spoke before an unofficial hearing convened by Democrats. At the hearing, she criticized  Georgetown University because they would not pay for or cover her birth control, and she made the following statement,

 “When I look around my campus, I see the faces of the women affected by this lack of contraceptive coverage. And especially in the last week, I have heard more and more of their stories. On a daily basis, I hear from yet another woman from Georgetown or from another school or who works for a religiously affiliated employer, and they tell me that they have suffered financially, emotionally and medically, because of this lack of coverage. And so I’m here today to share their voices, and I want to thank you for allowing them — them, not me — to be heard.” I am an American woman who uses contraceptives!”

Enter Rush Limbaugh, who responds on his radio show by saying,

 “What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.”

Because of Limbaugh’s comments, Sandra Fluke became an overnight sensation. She was suddenly the expert on contraceptives and women’s healthcare rights. Immediately she began touring colleges and universities around the United States talking to young girls and women about empowerment and how Republicans were purposefully taking away women’s access to healthcare and contraceptives.

She was then invited to speak at the Democratic  National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. After her speech, which wrongly accused Republicans of mentally, emotionally and physically abusing women, James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal wrote,

“Seriously, the party of Andrew Jackson and Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman chose to showcase someone whose claim to fame is that she demands that somebody else pay for her birth control.”

Erick Erickson of CNN said,

“Of course Rush Limbaugh was being insulting. He was using it as a tool to highlight just how absurd the Democrats’ position is on this. It’s what he does and does quite well. And in the process he’s exposing a lot of media bias on the issue as people rush out (no pun intended) to make Sandra Fluke a victim of his insults and dance around precisely what is really insulting? Her testimony before congress that American taxpayers should subsidize the sexual habits of Georgetown Law School students because, God forbid, they should stop having sex if they cannot afford the pills themselves.”

Is contraception really unaffordable? Lets look at the cost.  As reported in US News, Money and Personal Finance, the cost runs between $15 and $50 per month depending on your insurance coverage. This amounts to $150 to $600 per year. The cost of condoms, which also prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, runs from 20 cents to $2.50 a piece. Depending on your personal taste in condoms, a max of about $150 per year.

Now, let’s look at the TRUTH behind the Hobby Lobby case that went before the Supreme Court and the FACTS surrounding their decision.

First, the actual complaint (reader’s digest version directly from the court documents):

 “The Green Family’s religious beliefs forbid them from participating in, providing access to, paying for, training others to engage in, or otherwise supporting abortion-causing drugs and devices.”

What does that really represent?  Below is a list of exactly what Hobby Lobby now and will continue to cover and offer all its employees:

  1.  Male condoms
  2. Female condoms
  3. Diaphragms with spermicide
  4. Sponges with spermicide
  5. Cervical caps with spermicide
  6. Spermicide alone
  7. Birth-control pills with estrogen and progestin (“Combined Pill)
  8. Birth-control pills with progestin alone (“The Mini Pill)
  9. Birth control pills (extended/continuous use)
  10. Contraceptive patches
  11. Contraceptive rings
  12. Progestin injections
  13. Implantable rods
  14. Vasectomies
  15. Female sterilization surgeries
  16. Female sterilization implants

Below is a list of  exactly does Hobby Lobby does not want to  cover or offer all its employees based on their religious beliefs:

  1. Plan B (“The Morning After Pill
  2. ”Ella (a similar type of “emergency contraception”)
  3. Copper Intra-Uterine Device
  4. IUD with progestin

What is the difference between these two lists?

The first list is currently what Hobby Lobby offers to all its employers and is considered “contraception.” The items in this list PREVENT pregnancy.

The second list is what Hobby Lobby will not offer its employees based on their religious beliefs. The four items listed are all ABORTION INDUCING devices or medications. These are used AFTER pregnancy is achieved.

In conclusion, Hobby Lobby has no issues supplying its employees with coverage for the PREVENTION of pregnancy, i.e. contraception, nor does it interfere with a woman’s healthcare.

The Supreme Court agreed with Hobby Lobby.

So now lets go back to Sandra Fluke, a woman who graduated from Georgetown University, with a degree in law, and a double major at Cornell University.  After the Supreme Court released its findings, Sandra Fluke interpreted their ruling and made the following statement,

“What this is really about at its base is trying to figure out as many ways as possible to limit women’s access to reproductive healthcare.”

Did I miss something? Did Hobby Lobby refuse to pay for any contraception or healthcare for women? Did the Supreme Court decide that religious organizations did not have  to pay for ANY women’s healthcare or contraception? Why is she misrepresenting the findings? The only thing that is being limited in regards to women is abortion inducing drugs or procedures.

Did Sandra Fluke really learn the law at Georgetown or is she purposefully distorting the truth in order to tow the party line and support  the agenda of the Democratic party?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic Party’s national chairwoman said,

 “This is going to turn the dial back. Republicans want to do everything they can to have the long hand of government, and now the long hand of business, reach into a woman’s body and make healthcare decisions for her.”

Democratic senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire said,

“ Today’s Supreme Court decision unfortunately jeopardizes basic healthcare coverage and access to contraception for a countless number of women.”

Senate Democratic leader, Harry Reid said,

“Our party must now fight to preserve women’s access to contraceptive coverage.”

Hillary Clinton chastised the Supreme Court for ruling that an employer can refuse to provide women with contraception on religious grounds.

CBS reported,

“The Supreme Court as pitted women’s rights against religious freedom. It upheld a challenge to a key provision of Obamacare—the one that requires coverage for birth control.”

Is that really what the ruling said?  Or has this just become another witch-hunt to distract voters from the real issues and to garner votes for the Democrats? Another “War on Women” campaign?

Is it just a coincidence that mainstream media along with Democrats are screaming from the rooftops that the Republicans have taken away the rights of women to receive healthcare and contraception?

As a taxpayer, whether you are pro-life or pro-choice, why should our employers or we be responsible for picking up the tab for an abortion when a woman fails to protect herself during a sexual encounter? Is that really our responsibility? Is it okay to demand rights for yourself while stomping on the rights of others?

Have we seen a pattern established in this country under the current administration that has taken hold? A pattern where no one is held responsible or accountable for his or her own actions? Where the taxpayer is responsible for putting up their hard earned dollars to cover everyones bad decisions?  Have we seen our government and our media distort and misrepresent the truth in the name of politics? Is it okay to lie, cheat and steal in order to get the votes needed to win?

What happened to honor and truth and facts? Or have Lies become the new truth?

“Government: A Monster of Our Own Creation?”

img328 copy

Do we have blind faith in our government?  Do we have blind faith in our Media? Do we believe that our government will always do what is in our best interest? Has the press skirted their duties by allowing party affiliation and personal feelings to skew their reporting and basically stop informing the populace? What is happening to our country? Is the government a monster of our own creation?

 

Let’s start by looking at the current press and how their reporting or lack thereof could be negatively effecting our government and the people they represent.

 

Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodard of the Washington Post, emerged as the most famous journalists in American History? Why?  Between 1972 and 1976, they followed a story regarding a break-in at the Watergate Hotel and discovered a tangled web of deceit and lies leading directly to the White House and President Nixon. Because of a hunch, lots of research and investigation, they uncovered what we now know as “Watergate.” As a result of their hard work and unquenchable thirst for the truth, regardless of their political leanings, their story lead to the fall and resignation of President Nixon.

 

I think the journalists of yesterday helped to keep our government and its officials in check. They helped to keep them honest. No matter what political party you were associated with you still went out in search of the truth, the lies, and the deceptions.  It seemed as though journalists of yesteryear were in the people’s camp. We were all in this together, and the constant scrutiny by the press kept our government honest and working for the people. We knew that if you were corrupt, you would eventually get caught. We could turn on the news and know that the stories they told us were based on fact, hard work, real journalism and truth.  We never knew what party any of our news anchors favored. There was never an indication that they played for one team or the other. The prize was uncovering the truth, and keeping our elected officials honest.

I grew up in an era where journalism and politics were considered honorable professions.  This is no longer true today.

Let’s look at a line from the Society of Professional Journalist’s code of Ethics:

“Members of the Society of Professional Journalists believe that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the Journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues.”

 Do you believe this is happening in the reporting of the news today? The majority of bias in the news today is not necessarily the result of lies, but the omission of news stories that might not be consistent with their political leanings or their owners or advertisers. Stories might be omitted because they would not put the current administration in a favorable light.  Instead of seeking the truth and keeping the public informed, it becomes all about politics, advertisers and money.

A perfect example of this would be the story of the IRS and their potential targeting of conservatives.  Let’s look back to May of 2013 when the allegations against the IRS were first reported.

President Obama said,

“If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that’s outrageous. And there’s no place for it. And they have to be held fully accountable. Because the IRS as an independent agency requires absolute integrity, and people have to have confidence that they’re applying the laws in a nonpartisan way.”

 When asked about the IRS scandal in an interview with Bill O’Reilly from Fox news, President Obama said,

”Not a smidgen of corruption. These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because of you (Fox) and your TV station will promote them.”

 Is that true? Is Fox news only telling the story to make the administration look bad, or is the IRS scandal, in fact, a real story? Let’s look at the facts surrounding the IRS case.

On May 10, 2013, The Internal Revenue Service apologized for targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, and that their applications for tax-exempt status were being improperly delayed and scrutinized.

In the beginning, all the major media outlets were outraged and covered the scandal with the zeal that the Watergate scandal brought about. But then, the coverage all but stopped by mainstream media. What happened?

Reports circulated that groups from both conservative and liberal groups were targeted. This was supposed to make the investigation null and void. If the IRS was targeting both sides of the political aisle, then it was no longer news?

In an analysis by the Media Research Center, The big Three networks devoted a whopping 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to New Jersey’s Governor, Chris Christie’s traffic headache, which they dubbed “Bridgegate.” That is 17 times the 2 minutes and eight seconds devoted to the IRS scandal in the last six months. NBC featured 5 seconds, CBS with 1 minute and 41 seconds, and ABC a meager 22 seconds.

IRS Agents testified before Congress that the agency’s political targeting did not apply to progressive groups as Democrats and the media had claimed. Only 7 applications in the IRS backlog contained the word “progressive” all of which were approved by the IRS, while Conservative groups received unprecedented review and experienced years of waiting for their applications, most of which, have still not been approved. Twenty-four conservative groups were asked for their donor lists. The IRS told Congress that those lists were destroyed, however going through IRS files, they discovered three of the lists had not been destroyed. Of the donors on the lists, 10% were audited. The rate of audits on ordinary Americans is 1%.

Inspector General Russell George, according to his audit said,

 “Our audit did not find evidence that the IRS used the “progressives” identifier as selection criteria for potential political cases between May of 2010 and May of 2012.”

 The inspector general also stressed that,

 “100 percent of the groups with “tea party,” “patriots.” and “9/12” in their names were flagged for extra attention.”

 It was also proven that conservative groups were not only targeted, and harassed with IRS audits, but Lois Lerner was also cooking up plans with the Justice Department to criminally charge conservative groups, and emails were uncovered showing Lois Lerner was, in fact, sharing private taxpayer information regarding conservatives with the Federal Election Commission.

 Still, no news reports from mainstream news. 

In April 2014, Lois Lerner received a criminal referral from the House Ways and Mean Committee and new emails were intercepted proving she fed tax information on a targeted group to Representative Elijah Cummings (D).

 Did we hear updates from mainstream? No. Was Elijah Cummings asked any questions about the shared emails? No.

When Congress demanded the emails from Lois Lerner’s computers, during the time period when this event occurred, they claimed her emails were lost when her computer crashed.  Congress then discovered her hard drive was destroyed as well. Additionally, 6-7 other employees involved in the scandal also mysteriously had their computers crash, and their hard drives also destroyed.

 Did this prompt reports on mainstream media? NO.

Based on this story alone, do you feel that the news is being reported? Do you feel that the mainstream media has your back? Do you think it is important for the United States public to know how and why and who was involved with the IRS targeting of Americans for their political speech and beliefs?

Regardless of your political party affiliation, it IS news. We, as Americans, should be outraged that the press is picking and choosing the stories they report to the American public.

Let’s look at some statistics.

“Surveys by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press among other polling and research groups show that about two-thirds of the general public cite television as their main source for national and international news, more than twice the number of people who rely on newspapers, and about 50 percent more than the growing number of U.S. residents who rely on the Internet (43 percent).”

Australian journalist John Pilger also captures this very well:

“Long before the Soviet Union broke up, a group of Russian writers touring the United States were astonished to find, after reading the newspapers and watching television, that almost all the opinions on all the vital issues were the same. “In our country,” said one of them, “to get that result we have a dictatorship. We imprison people. We tear out their fingernails. Here you have none of that. How do you do it? What’s the secret?”

Ben H. Bagdikian of the Media Monopoly said,

“The inappropriate fit between the country’s major media and the country’s political system has starved voters of relevant information, leaving them at the mercy of paid political propaganda that is close to meaningless and often worse. It has eroded the central requirement of a democracy that those who are governed give not only their consent but their informed consent.”

Daniel Terdiman, a journalist who has been published in Time Magazine, The New York Times, Wired Magazine and many others says,

“You can get so close to a source that you become part of the problem, he added. “Some people say that these powerful people use journalists, and they do. And they will use them to the fullest extent possible, right up until the point where the journalist says, ‘Whoa, that’s too far.’  [Journalists] shouldn’t be willing to water down the truth to protect their access to power.”

The World Press Freedom Index of 2014 rated The United States number 46th in the world for freedom of the press. What does that mean? In 2009, the United States was rated number 22 in the world. What is happening in this country?

Why are Americans more informed on movie star happenings, then events that affect their very lives?

I read an article after the IRS scandal broke where Bette Midler, said, thank you to the IRS for targeting tea party groups, who she sees as haters.  My question to the “Divine Miss M,” would be, how would she feel, if the IRS decided to target red-headed singers/actresses?  How about women with black hair? How about men with brown eyes? What about Christians? How about Jews?

You have to ask yourself one question. Should the IRS have the freedom and the power to target any American for their beliefs?

In this day and age of such polarization, we have to stand up as Americans and fight for the freedoms our forefather’s guaranteed us when this fledgling country was born. We must remember that government, especially in the past 5 years has divided us among families, political parties, religious groups, gay and traditional marriage groups, blacks against whites, males against females, rich against poor…and the list goes on.  Why? As long as we are divided, government grows stronger and the United States gets weaker. We have to recognize that when we, as Americans, are divided, we have already been conquered and the government becomes a monster of our own creation!

Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of U.S. Immigration Laws”

 

images

Congress has passed a total of 7 amnesties since 1986.  Each one gave blanket amnesty to illegals that were residing within the United States.  Each time, the public was promised that border control would be stepped up. But has the border really been secured? Based on an agreement reached in Congress in 2011, President Obama said the fence along the border of Mexico is “now basically complete.”  In his speech on May 10, 2011, in El Paso, he further said,

 

“We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. All the stuff they asked for, we’ve done. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I’ve got to say I suspect there are still going to be some who are trying to move the goals posts on us one more time. They’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.”

 

I have one question after reading his comments on border security. If the border is secure, then how have thousands and thousands of illegals been able to cross the border into the United States? Now, thousands of minor children are flooding into the United States. Are our borders secure or are we looking at yet, another untruth told by this administration?

 

I found an article on PolitiFact.com that answered my question.

In their article, the following was said,

 

“Department of Homeland Security officials told us they have finished 649 our 652 miles of fencing (99.5 percent) which includes 299 miles of vehicle barriers and 350 miles of pedestrian fence.”

But the same day, Senator De Mint said,

 

“The Obama administration has not done its job to finish the border fence that is a critical part of keeping Americans safe and stopping illegal immigration. Five years ago, legislation was passed to build a 700-mile double layer border fence along the southwest border. This is a promise that has not been kept. Today, according to the staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5% of the double layer fencing is complete, only 36.1 miles.”

 

So, does that mean that President Obama is lying? Are you having flash backs to the promise, that you could keep your insurance and your doctor if you liked them?

 

Let’s flash back to President Obama’s Dream Act of 2012.

The president used his pen and phone to pass the Dream Act, which allows children of illegal aliens bought into the country, legal status in the US, without fear of deportation, and eligibility to receive instate tuition.  This law will impact approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants from the ages of 16-30. The Dream Act was passed without Congressional or Senate approval. President Obama said he passed it because Republicans were blocking the act. In fact it lost the vote in the Senate because 5 Democrats voted against it. Had they followed party lines, the Dream Act would have been approved.  Why did Obama not get the support he needed in order for the act to pass through constitutionally?

 

After his announcement, that he alone had passed the Dream Act without legislative support, a reporter asked the President,

 

“Mr. President, why do you favor foreign workers over Americans?”

 

President Obama told the reporter not to interrupt. The question was never answered.

 

Now, lets flash-forward to today at our borders.

 

President Obama is prohibiting Border Patrol Agents from talking to journalists about the thousands of minors crossing into the United States.  Why is he denying them the right to tell the public what is really going on at the border? What happened to being the most transparent administration in history? The AP recently obtained an email from an assistant patrol agent ordering more than 3000 agents not to speak to reporters about what was going on at the border or face disciplinary action or be charged criminally.  Why?

 

Representative Steve King said,

 

 “I’m afraid President Obama is going to do nothing to secure our border with Mexico. Right now, the United States effectively has no border with Mexico and the borders in Central America all the way down to Panama appear to be wide open as well.”

 

Why the sudden insurgence of minors across the border?

This is happening because of the President’s de facto amnesty for children who are in the United State illegally. President Obama recently renewed the Dream Act legitimizing juveniles who are in the US “illegally and unaccompanied.

 

When agents at the border asked over 200 non-Mexican immigrants why they were entering into the United States, 95% said they headed to the U.S because they had been told they could get a free pass simply by showing up at the border. A large percentage also said that their family members in the US told them to travel immediately because the government was issuing immigration passes until the end of June. These children and adults are not scaling the fences, they are surrendering to border control agents, because they know they will not be turned away.  They are all giving the same answer, “if you go down there, the chances of you getting sent back or deported to your native country are slim to none.” “It’s a free ticket.”  “Obama will never deport us and we can receive welfare for life. “

 

The question of the day is how these thousands of children are able to travel approximately 1800 miles through Mexico’s rough terrain to Texas? We know they would never be able to do it on their own as the majority are under 12 years of age and a lot of these kids are arriving with measles, tuberculosis and scabies. Who is helping them reach the border? How are these children crossing the Mexican border? Is Mexico intentionally letting them in and why?

 

So what is the Obama administration offering to the unaccompanied kids flooding in to the United States?

 

Mattresses have been ordered along with medical supplies and other basics. Vendors are being contracted to provide the children with nutritional meals and FEMA will provide counseling and recreational activities. There are makeshift cafes and medical centers and telephone banks and computers have been set up so they can reach other family members already in the United States. Three military installations are being used to house the immigrants.  A border patrol agent said the government is chartering airlines to fly the children form Texas to Arizona.

 

Attorney General Eric Holder announced a new program called “Justice AmeriCorps,” which will provide free lawyers and paralegal services to the illegal’s flooding the border. This program alone  is costing approximately $2million of taxpayer dollars. But that is just the beginning.

 

The Obama administration says,

“They need to defend a vulnerable population from discrimination based on their immigration status.”

 Who is paying the tab for the chartered planes, food, medical care, beds, facilities and lawyers?  Plain and simple…The US Taxpayer.

Vice President Joe Biden said,

 “The U.S. needs a constant, unrelenting stream of new immigrants to buttress the national economy.”

 Representative Henry Cueller, a Democrat, but overall critic of how Obama has handled the crisis said,

 “If we don’t send the message that they can’t just come in and stay here, its gonna continue, this wave of humanity.”

 The National Association of Former Border Patrol Agents said,

“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes.” Certainly we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government. This campaign is a political deception and the responsibility rests with the political leaders who support a path to citizenship, regularization or any other form of amnesty for illegal aliens before providing for full protections for national security and public safety. Non-enforcement of immigration laws is the next step in becoming a failed state.”

Gil Kerlikowske, a commissioner of U.S Customs and Border Protection said Friday,

“Border Patrol agents are changing diapers and heating baby formula in order to care for some of the youngest children. “

 

Other agents have said,

 “ After they have crossed the border they are processed and bused or flown to another state like Arizona, Virginia or Maryland where they are given a court date and dropped off in hope they might actually show up. They hardly ever do and court dates can be as far away as three years.  Many of them are in advanced stages of pregnancy and will likely have a child that will become an American citizen.”

A border patrol agent, stationed in South Texas, whose name is being withheld in fear of retaliation, sent a letter to journalist Adan Salazar, saying,

Good Morning,

I am a Border Patrol Agent in the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV), south of Corpus Christi, Texas.  Thank you for your continued support and coverage of the ongoing crisis on the border.  I would like to take a moment to convey the absolute desperation that we are reaching down here.  We have been ordered to release thousands of Family Units (Parent/Child), and thousands of teenage unaccompanied juveniles (Under 18).  We have encountered numerous instances of fraud, kidnapping, and exploitation where adults are claiming that very young children are their own, when in fact they are not.  Many of the unaccompanied juveniles are claiming that they have a responsible parent to be released to, when in fact they do not.

As a Border Patrol Agent, I can tell you as an eyewitness that we are currently losing more than we are catching.  On a good day, we catch approximately 30 to 40 percent of all crossers while the rest simply get away.  In the RGV, we have been averaging around 10,000 apprehensions per week.  That means we are losing well over 10,000 aliens per week.  And the aliens that are getting away are not the juveniles or the family units because they are turning themselves in at the first sight of agents.  The ones we are losing are convicted felons, aliens from special interest countries, and other high-risk individuals.  We are so overwhelmed and preoccupied by the flood of juveniles and family units that we cannot use our resources to catch the more serious aliens.

In the RGV, we have been releasing aliens, through ICE, in Brownsville, Texas and McAllen, Texas.  We have been ordered to go out of our way to bus them to those locations for release because they are cities of mostly Hispanic heritage, so fewer people will notice or care.  We have been doing that for months before the stories broke in Phoenix, Arizona a couple of weeks ago.

We cannot get any attention or relief down here.  We desperately need immediate manpower, resources, and a firm support of Americans.  This is de facto amnesty.  The President and the Secretary of Homeland Security will ignore this issue as long as possible in order to let as many illegal aliens gain entry into the United States.

Again, thank you for your undying support and patriotism.  You have no idea how much my fellow agents and I appreciate it. God bless America.

If we can afford to charter planes to fly the illegal immigrants to Arizona, then why can’t they be flown back home and put into the care of their own country?

Why would anyone believe that asking illegals to return for their court dates in 90 days would in anyway force them to show up, especially when we will supply them will all they need to stay here and live comfortably?

The question of the day is why would President Obama open our borders and invite thousands and thousands of minors and adults to cross the border illegally into the United States?

Representative King said last week that Obama has manufactured the crisis in an attempt to overload the social welfare system.

 “I do feel this attempt to flood the border with illegals is a playing out of the Cloward-Piven theory.”

 “In 1960, Professors Richard Cloward and Francis Piven of Columbia University, Obama’s alma mater, devised a plan to provoke chaos by deliberately overwhelming governmental systems and the U.S. economy to the point of collapse, paving the way for state intervention that would ultimately replace America’s free enterprise republic with a collectivist system.”

 “If you don’t see them bring reinforcements down there to seal the border, that means that, yes, it’s a Cloward –Piven maneuver to flood the country until we get to the point where we are an open-borders country that welcomes everybody, legal and illegal.”

 Representative Steve Stockman agreed that Obama, who studied the chaos strategy (Cloward-Piven) at Columbia, according to a classmate, “is trying to do a Cloward-Piven thing with the border. This is a crisis the White House intends to create.”

 Will it overwhelm our system? When Obama took office, we had 13 million Americans on food stamps and now a record 47 million are using SNAP cards. We have almost 13 million Americans on Welfare and close to 6 million on Unemployment.  In almost all of our states, welfare pays more than minimum wage and in some cases as much as $24 per hour.  Almost 30% of welfare recipients receive benefits for 3-5 years and 20% over 5 years. Unemployment rates have stayed close to 7% with 3 times as many people dropping out of the labor force then joining it.  In April alone, 288,000 jobs were created while 806,000 people gave up looking. In April, 92,594,000 dropped out of the labor force and that was 1 million more then the month before. The number of women not in the labor force has risen to an all time high, there was a huge loss of jobs in the 24-54-age range and in 20% of American families no one works, and the majority of jobs being created are low wage, part time and temporary jobs.

Then we can look to the growing number of scandals besides the ignoring of our immigration laws; IRS targeting of Americans, Fast and Furious, the NSA spying on Americans, the spying on the conservative media and their sources, the lack of reporting by the left leaning media, the negotiating with terrorists and trading of 5 Taliban leaders for one deserter, the drawing of red lines in the sand , the crisis in Ukraine and Crimea, Russia, the questionable deals with Iran, the constant political correctness forced on all Americans, the constant regulations placed on small business, the failed website and lies around Obamacare, the accusations of working Americans never paying their fair share, the demonization of anyone who disagrees with the current agenda, the War on Coal, the government takeover of American lands, the Climate Change lies, the over-reaching of the EPA and the FCC, the killing of Christians across the globe, the constant attack on our Constitution,  and you have to ask yourselves, ”is this the fundamental transformation that President Obama promised?
