You want to get to the bottom of Benghazi? Here goes…
The Obama administration has defiantly denied requests for information and emails that would have proven–before Mr. Hicks testimony–that they lied on all points related to what happened. They removed all references to an Al Queda TERRORIST attack. They made up some bogus excuse, calling a video that no one even viewed (until after it was blamed for the attacks of “protesters”) for the murders of an ambassador, an assistant to the Ambassador, and two Navy SEALs.
When did the White House know it was a Terrorist attack? When did the State Dept. Know? Who CARES? I mean, of course, these things are important, but we know that they knew, immediately, that the Ambassador was under attack–he sent the cable, the email, the notification. We know that they had asked for security to be increased, and that there WERE intelligence reports of an impending attack, as well as protests to be held in Egypt at or near the Embassy there, for the release of the Blind Sheik. As of two days ago, the Muslim in Chief still made the idiotic reference to the video, as the cause of those protests in Egypt. What I’m getting at is he still refuses to get to the truth.
Currently his administration is under scrutiny for several scandals. The IRS targeting Tea Party, Conservatives, Jews, Christians, and even Pro Israel Groups that sought 401 3(C) status. Basically, ANYONE against his administration for the purposes of creating an Enemies list? The AP phone records and personal information of reporters and journalists–confiscated by the DOJ. This could suggest an attempt at intimidation of “whistleblowers”–especially in the light of people like Mr. Hicks, and other persons who were threatened into remaining silent, some said even “with threats of decapitation”. !!! . Current Liberal spin is they are just trying to root out people in the CIA or other high offices that might be leaking intelligence that could put personnel at risk. Yeah, right. Risk, Mr. Obama? RISK is a cable, in your face CLEAR, that “We are under attack by an organized group of Terrorists–send help!” Somewhat paraphrased, maybe, but you catch the essence. A communication you were aware of, without any doubt, and chose to go to bed (if that is true) and leave early the next morning to go to fundraisers in Las Vegas. But, I digress from my title.
To make it perfectly clear. We know, now, that Benghazi was this Administration illegally running guns–again–only this time to the ENEMY. The so called “Syrian Rebels” are an offshoot of the same Muslim Brotherhood and Al Queda organizations that now (also with Obama’s support and assistance) control the ENTIRE Middle East. The administrations purpose in the covert operation was to arm Al Queda, to overthrow a legitimate government in Syria–that 78% or more of the population supports. They don’t want Islamic extremism controlling their lives, and taking away their Westernization, unlike the Egyptian President that thanked Obama for his “assistance in shaking their Western influences”. Now, to further break this down for you, Al Queda is the enemy. At every turn, Obama and his State Dept have been in bed with them overthrowing governments in the Middle East, touting the “Arab Spring” and the Muslim Brotherhood as good things. If you are running Stinger missiles and Rocket Launchers to Al Queda, you are supporting the same enemy that has directly attacked our government and way of life. Simply put, that is TREASON. That is a crime against our country, and if charged, should be a Capital Offense. A hanging offense in days of old.
Now, the one question that nobody seems able to, or wants to ask… The absolute nail in the coffin of the man destroying the American way of life, is this… WHO, WHEN IT HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT THERE WAS AMPLE TIME TO RESCUE THOSE THAT DIE (3 TIMES OVER), AND THERE WERE FORCES CHOMPING AT THE BIT TO GO IN AND KICK ASS) WHO GAVE THE “STAND DOWN” ORDERS? Not once, but three times? WHO removed Admiral Hamm from his Command position in the Middle East, related to the fact that he was willing to mount a rescue against the inactivity AND the first “stand down” order? WHO was determined to stop all attempts of rescue, and then, WHY? ANSWER THE WHO, AND THEN THE WHY, AND YOU WILL HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT! A TRAITOR WILL BE IN JAIL, AS WILL ALL THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH BENGHAZI, AND THERE MIGHT BE HOPE FOR AMERICA TO RECOVER FROM THE DAMAGES DONE BY BARACK OBAMA AND HIS MINIONS.
The WHY, I have already partially answered. Stevens was meeting that night with a Turkish Affairs Minister, purportedly to arrange the transportation of those mentioned weapons through Turkey, to Syrian rebels. There is also a leak that Stevens was to have been set up for “kidnapping” by the same Al Queda faction that ultimately killed him, to used as an exchange for the release of none other than the “Blind Sheik” whom we hold in prison for the first attack on the World Trade Center. (Possibly a good reason for this administration to go for the throats of AP, and stop leaks…you think?). What happened next, nobody in the administration counted on. The pre-staged attack started. A call for help went out. “Stand Down” was ordered. TWO SEALs refused to obey the order. The Al Queda operatives, and very same beneficiaries of the gun running operation, got a little pissed that their walk in, waltz out with the Ambassador as hostage, was thwarted. Those SEALs bought valuable time…7 and 1/2 hrs…for rescue of all involved. But, the rescue would have included the grabbing of all documents related to the dealings going on, and some type of demand for explanation of those same activities. That in a nutshell is what happened in Benghazi. And, the answer to the question is the President. Only ONE person, ONE PERSON, could have ordered the Foreign Command in the Middle East to “Stand Down”. Did he go to bed? Possibly. Campaigning was more important, and the spin doctors could handle it. But, I don’t think so. I think he watched the live footage from the situation room that was sent by the drone we now know was filming the entire attack. He not only ordered the “Stand Down” once, but at least TWICE, and removed the Admiral that was trying to mount a rescue from his command. And, the same Admiral has come out with exactly what the entire Benghazi mission was. We have all the information about the operation, and no one asking WHO said “Stand Down”. If we know there was only ONE person who could do that, and we know the situation, the only reason can be to cover up the TREASON.
I beg you to point out the fault in my logic. This was, also, all done months before the election…and we are just now getting the facts, that would have probably canned his re-election.
We need every scrap of paper on Benghazi. Amazingly, even after saying they were releasing all the emails requested, they still didn’t release the two days worth that immediately followed the attack–which WERE requested. The COVER UP for this President’s Treasonous acts is on going. Hopefully, the tenacity of Issa’s Oversight Committee will gain the evidence needed to, once and for all, remove this Tyrant that thinks he is above the law, and who is giving us over in piece meal fashion to the Muslims and the UN, from our country’s White House, and the position of the most powerful man in the world. It is time. And we can only pray that Democrats and Progressives alike will assist the Conservatives, who finally have their teeth in the throat of this rotting administration, with removal of Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein Obama, Harrison J. Bounell (et al. aliases) through impeachment. WHY isn’t anyone asking the most important question?! The answer WILL save the United States. God, Please, Bless America…?
You want to get to the bottom of Benghazi? Here goes…
Someone told me the Confederate Flag was a symbol of racism. Bah! Fact is they fell into the spin that has been around only since more recent times, as people in the 1860’s and early 1900’s KNEW why the Civil War was fought. And even though it is in black and white, SOME people choose the Romanticised version, which paints the North as the Glorious Freedom Fighters for the Enslaved Negroes of the South.
The myth has long been dispelled about the war being fought to free the slaves. It started for reasons from Theological and Political differences, to Industry and Taxation. And, the irony of it all is that the government is not valid without the consent of the governed, a principle set forth in the Constitution. When the South seceded, they didn’t declare war, the North did. And, “I am for preserving to the States the powers not yielded by them to the Union,” Thomas Jefferson claimed. “If there be any among us who wish to dissolve the Union… let them stand undisturbed, ” Jefferson said in his “First Inaugural Address” in 1800. Virginia, the two Carolinas, and Georgia funded 3/4 of the expenses of running the Federal Government. The tariffs were heavier on the South and they were getting nothing in return. It was TAXES and import DUTIES that brought about secession, not slavery. And, if it had been about slavery, all the south would have to have done was accept the ORIGINAL 13th amendment to have slavery protected for all time, in 1861. It was about the North envying the South’s prosperity, and fearing they would take it with them when they left. Lincoln saw as much and claimed, “I can’t let them go. Who would pay for the government?” Lincoln knew who was in charge of the government he headed: “In saving the Union, I have destroyed the republic. Before me I have the Confederacy which I loath. But behind me I have the bankers which a fear.” About The Emancipation Proclamation Abraham Lincoln claimed in 1862, “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it.” He didn’t care about slaves or slavery but union and maintaining power. He said, ” I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about, in any way, a social and political equality of the White and Black races, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people. I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and Black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race.” Whew… The ORIGINAL White Supremacist! Like I said…it wasn’t about Freedom or Equality for the Black population. It was about the same things we are fighting NOW, with the spendthrifts in Washington. Taxation, destroying our prosperity, and basically being enslaved by the government to fund the government and their expenditures, and even then, their redistribution of the wealth. It was taking from the South, to fund expansion, industrialization, and failed ventures. The bankers were looking at huge losses if the South wasn’t paying the import taxes, and the Government was looking at collapsing because if the South seceded, it had no money to run. It’s always been about the wealth, and taking that wealth from the South. That is what the Confederate Flag is a Battle Standard for. Not in support of Slavery. That is the history written by the winner…the spin.The same spin and bias this administration is feeding America as they tax heavier, and further encroach on individual rights. As they become divisive on every level…religious, political, racial, and economical. There is strength in the Confederate flag, and spirit that even Washington fears, today. That’s where those of us that cling to our guns and Bibles are coming from, and Obama knows it. And it isn’t about race , for MOST of us, but about individual Freedoms, and Rights GUARANTEED under the Constitution that Obama and his Marxist minions have no respect for. And, as an afterthought… He compared himself to Lincoln, and I’ll give him this…He cares nothing for the black population. He is using them to further his agenda, just as Lincoln USED them to further his. And, somewhere in history the “Glorious Lie” will be told of how he freed the minorities AGAIN, and gave them the rich man’s wealth. And, meanwhile, this administration prepares for war on its own citizens, again, as indicated by the purchase of ammunition, weaponry, riot tanks, and recent legislation. All these things because the taxpayer–the wealthy landowner–is tired of the Government doing the same thing NOW, that it was doing then to force the secession of states in 1860 and 1861. My God, people, we have states threatening secession, NOW! And, once again, the truth about why is being twisted… We are called racists, rednecks, Tea Baggers, and anything despicable the Marxists can think of, and because they can’t dispel the truth with ridicule, they write their own propaganda and history. If you want to know what the Confederate Flag really stands for, it is kind of a representation of “Never Say Die Spirit”. The good ol’ boys and their mud slingin’, BBQ, fatback, hunting, fishing, gun toting, “a country boy can survive”, and see you in church on Sunday way of life, where you take care of your neighbors in need because it’s right, not because the Government became their lifelong provider. See, it’s also about values like honor, honesty, and believing in some kind of work ethic. That is what the Confederate flag represents. It’s what is left of the American Spirit, right now, I think. So, don’t attack my Confederate Flag… I think that in the not too distant future, you just may be glad to see it coming, and proud of what it stands for.
Obama, who we all know cannot talk without a teleprompter, got his ass stomped in the first debate. That is an undisputed fact. He had no facts, no figures, and only the “5 Trillion dollar” illusion he was trying to feed the nation. It wasn’t true, and there was nothing to substantiate it, so he threw it out there as a distraction, otherwise looking at his shoes, or at the moderator for rescue.
In the second debate, he was also being trounced. Once again feeding the same old lines and BS policies that America isn’t, obviously, buying anymore. We are tired of more of the same Class Warfare, ultra left agenda, and racism he panders to and is a part of.
Third debate, he seemed more juvenile and snarky, with his focused gaze, sternly set mouth, and several attacks on Romney, who despite them, managed to stay on subject and carry the best part of the day. I am sure Obama wanted a return match on Libya, but Romney didn’t bite, and there was no moderator to incorrectly double team Romney with incorrect information. Libya is a nightmare. Obama was in the situation room that day…watching DRONE footage, live feed within 2 hours of the attacks. For 7 hours, those people begged for help, and two Marines trotted their way across the city to be there to protect the embassy. They held off the equivalent of a battalion of attackers for 7 hours–and the President, in the comfort of the White House, not only watched, but told the military to “stand down”. What does this say about this President? What else does it say that he was on a plane to Vegas the next morning to Campaign? What does it say that he knew, Hillary knew, and so did everyone else in that administration, that the video bull shit was NEVER an issue. And, furthermore, what about the AMERICAN rotting in jail on some type of trumped up charge, that Hillary has promised those families will suffer punishment to the fullest extent of the law… For what? Free Speech? They all knew they were throwing in with the extremists when they helped the Muslim Brotherhood take over the Middle East–starting with Egypt, rolling across and finally at Syria’s doors. 70% of the population supports their President Assad. They enjoy their Westernization. And, Obama is once again throwing in with the rebels, and the UN, who are determined to take Syria down. The European Press knows the truth of that situation, but it is not told here in America, as the media paints pictures of wrongful genocide on the part of the Syrian government. The truth is, the rebels are being hidden, and hiding out among the population that is being targeted. That in itself makes them as guilty as the rebels. Who do you think Obama will target when there is an uprising…just those involved? According to the EO that followed the NDAA, it looks to me like anyone that is speaking against his administration will be in a FEMA camp, stripped of their citizenship, and held indefinitely without due process.
The electoral map actually shows the end of his administration–if one uses common sense. It should be Romney by 20, if the election falls as it should and isn’t stolen through cheating and deceit by Obama.
What is he willing to do to hold onto power. Well, I am waiting to find out what steps happen once he is sure there is no win in his future. But, I will also say this. He cheated in the third debate. He had an ear piece, in his right ear, and was given answers by “someone” during the debate…why? Because he is a true idiot, that cannot speak without someone writing his perfect speeches and putting them on a teleprompter. We have seen it time and time again. I will post a link… You can go there and see the picture captured during the debate. Decide for yourself. Then, watch the debate, and notice how when Romney was speaking, Obama tilted his head to the right and slightly away from Romney so he could hear someone talking into his ear. And, whoever was coaching him continued the lies of the past…nothing new. All the while they waited for Romney to bring up Libya. I was a little surprised that he didn’t, but glad in the long run, because I think he threw the cheater off his game even further. And, meanwhile, we have since learned even more disgusting FACTS about what really happened in Libya.
I think the most disgusting phrase, the most arrogant and narcissistic phrase of the debate, was when Obama said “this Nation, ME, my administration…”. HE is not this nation, and most of us didn’t support anything going on in the middle east, that knew what was really happening. The installation of extremist Muslims, against westernized countries–us–and the backward path that it has lead to.
Obama is a liar. He made up some bogus nonsense about a video as a smoke screen, and it has backfired. The truth is, he sat and watched while those people died, from the situation room, and then went to Vegas to campaign. Hillary Clinton bears her share of the guilt as well.
There is a rumor…just a rumor, that this was an experiment in controlling uprisings, and a CIA operation. Why would they be trying to start and then control uprisings? I will give you a thought on that. Rumor also has it, that they plan to put forth an attempt to assassinate the President, stir the minorities to riot, then declare martial law, and suspend the election, making Obama President until he sees fit to hold it, and at the same time imprisoning in FEMA camps anyone who disagrees with his policies. Far fetched? Maybe. But, they didn’t pass the NDAA and he didn’t write the EO that gives him the authority to declare martial law in PEACETIME for nothing. A man who has lied, cheated in debates, and looked down his nose at all Americans… That is Obama. What is he really willing to do to hold the Presidency until he can collapse our economy by overwhelming it with debt, and finish his transition of this country into a Socialist Nation? I’ll leave you with that and the following link of his cheating ear mic… Come and get me Obama… I absolutely hate you.
You Had To Know It Was Coming…!
Ambassador Stevens…one of the latest casualties caused by the pussified policies of this Administration. “Let’s be FRIENDS”, Obliviama says. “We have the greatest respect for our Muslim brothers”, he says. “I plan to disarm to the point of exhibiting that we are no threat to our Muslim neighbors”, and “We are not a Christian Nation”. Finally, he lauds their contributions this country, even trying to say that Thomas Jefferson ordered a specific set of scrolls to pay homage to them. Sorry, Obama, he ordered them to study the ENEMY, whom he considered Barbaric. Oh, and let’s not forget the Muslim forces that the Grand Mufti sent to fight with the Nazis in WWII, and that they were among the last to stand for the Nazi cause–defending the actual bunker Hitler was hiding in. So much for their contributions, Obama, the only contributions Islam has ever made to this country have been to strengthen our resolve to stand together against them as enemies, through multiple attacks that have been unprovoked, until it was finally necessary to declare war on them. And, for most of this term as President, Obama has made rounds of “Apology Tours”, to apologize for America’s “arrogance” and our way of living. It is time for this Closet Muslim to go. And, make no mistake, he is a Muslim. He has cancelled every Christian-type religious function that has ever become a part of the White House Protocol, and held a Muslim Prayer Dinner in its place. He has attended more than 60 such events away from the White House. And then, there is the wedding band that disappears for the entire month of The Fast of Ramadan–one of the Holiest of Muslim rituals, and which does not permit its faithful males to wear jewelry of any kind, even their wedding band. It was finally questioned by a member of the White House Press Corps in 2011, and the response was that the ring was at the jewelers for repair… Ummmm, what kind of repair do you suppose a plain Platinum band requires every year during the Fast of Ramadan?
I will propose to you that Obama is Muslim, and then also back it up with his statement during a pre-election interview, that “John McCain doesn’t question me about my Muslim Faith…” OOOPs! Freudian slip, and then give you a final fact…He has not stepped foot inside ONE Christian bastion since entering the office of President.
Now, we have had the Arab Spring, which was never an attempt to promote democracy, as Islam and democracy are mutually exclusive terms. Islam doesn’t allow for equality among its citizens, especially women, and if you are not of the religion, you are an Infidel, considered unclean, and in their perfect world, you would at best be a dhemmi, if you weren’t DEAD. There is no tolerance for anything that is not Muslim. So, there was never to be a “Democracy”, and I submit that the uprising was a controlled and guided ploy, duping the masses that helped to protest the governments of the Middle East, to reach exactly the ends that it finally achieved…Extremist Muslims in power in every country where the overthrows of the governments were successful. And, Obama, along with Hillary, and the rest of this administration were fully aware of the powers they sided with and the fingerprints of this administration are all over this “Arab Spring”. The media even questioned the support of the powers that seemed to be driving this massive movement. Then, knowing that at least here in America, we were suspicious of those forces, they issued statements telling us how The Muslim Brotherhood, and other KNOWN extremists, who have supported terrorism all over the world, were not “Extremists”. And, this buffoon still touts this movement as a GOOD thing! He wants the world to allow this process to proceed and continue to mature from its infancy! And, he is condemning Syria for defending itself. Meanwhile…Syria, is supported by 75% of its population–yes, backing the government–against the Arab Spring extremist “rebel” forces trying to overthrow it. I might add that both Syria and Egypt were extremely westernized countries–something despised by the Extremist Muslims, as well as the fact that they are tolerant of other religions, well were… Egypt burned churches following the step down of Mubarak, and then shot Christians dead in the streets. Gotta love the Tolerant, Peaceful side of Islam…Right?
Now, we know how this process is maturing… We know what it looks like as a juvenile. Lord knows it isn’t full grown, yet, because when it is, Islam will have a major foothold in even the civilized countries…Yes, I said CIVILIZED countries. Those people are savages, controlled by a political CULT, spawned by a pedophilic pervert named Mohammad, who was raised in both Judaism and Christianity, and then after deciding in his 40s to become a prophet, borrowed from the Holy books of both religions to create Islam–a cult based in hate, not love, and embracing not only the hatred of all things “not Muslim”, but pedophilia, bestiality, and the slaughter of innocents (or anyone refusing to convert to Islam). Please refer to the Qu’ran for evidence of the “thighing” of infant females, or the laws that permit sexual relations with a goat, but will condemn the individual if he later eats that animal. Yes… I DID say uncivilized, and Barbaric. They are beneath animals.
Now, we have Muslims, and I make no differentiation between extremist and moderate, all over the Middle East, specifically targeting Americans, and killing anything else they take a notion to kill–even if it happens to be each other.
Ambassador Stevens, and the rest of the staff at the American Consulate in Libya were moved to another building by their Libyan “protectors”…you know, the ones that Obama tried to praise and tell Americans they were on our side, the armed military guards, that were standing between our personnel abroad and the WELL-ARMED protesters. Supposedly, they were overwhelmed and the protesters stormed the second building, killing Ambassador Stevens and the others. Then, it is said, that he was taken from there for the purpose of being moved to a hospital. Let me correct that information for you:
“Wanis al-Sharef, a Libyan Interior Ministry official in Benghazi, said the four Americans were killed when the angry mob, which gathered to protest a U.S.-made film that ridicules Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, fired guns and burned down the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
He said Stevens, 52, and other officials were moved to a second building – deemed safer – after the initial wave of protests at the consulate compound. According to al-Sharef, members of the Libyan security team seem to have indicated to the protesters the building to which the American officials had been relocated, and that building then came under attack.”
And, here is the link to the entire article: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57511043/assault-on-u.s-consulate-in-benghazi-leaves-4-dead-including-u.s-ambassador-j-christopher-stevens/
Now, that isn’t from FOX, folks, it is from CBS news. The stated premise for this invasion and those all over the Middle East is that they are offended by some movie that portrays Mohammad in a blasphemous (albeit COMPLETELY TRUTHFUL) light. Yes, he was a pedophile, and Islam allows for the same pedophilia to continue as part of their day to day living. Homosexual…? I will have to research that one. But, needless to say, it is my contention that the movie had nothing to do with this uprising of hatred filled animals, as the movie has been on the internet on Youtube since 2011, prompting the question–Why NOW? More than likely, due to the fact that the number two Al Queda, Saeed Al Shihri, and 6 of his minions were killed in Yemen about 5 days ago had more to do with it, considering the factions that now are in control of the Middle East. I imagine, as well, that a little googling on the part of some very creative CYA, staffers, both American and Libyan–pulled the movie theory out of their ass to try to make it look like it is America’s fault that her people are being killed abroad. Oh, REALLY? So, it is OK to gang rape a female journalist or kill someone who is in NO WAY involved with anything related to the movie? Simply for being at their post, or doing their job covering the Arab Spring uprising? I think the Hell NOT. And, there is no excuse for Obama continuing to support the Arab Spring movement, which he continues to do even as late as this week, refusing to condemn the violence that has continued to spur onward until it reached this point.
As our embassies burn and American’s are being killed and/or injured, Obama’s partying it up in Vegas. Israeli sources have revealed that Egypt’s General Intelligence warned that jihadists were planning attacks on U.S. and Israeli embassies, as early as a week before they occurred on the anniversary of Al Qaeda’s 9/11 terror attacks, I guess someone was too busy campaigning to pay attention or take it seriously–Wonder which agency will be blamed for dropping the “communication” ball, this time? Meanwhile, Moochelle Obama is busy telling us that Obesity is ‘absolutely’ the greatest threat to National Security, and gay boy Chuckie Schumer is spinning this latest and greatest lie: That Obama would be far more likely (in his 2nd term), to go after Iran and its Nukes than Romney…yeah, to try and protect Israel? You mean the Israel, and its PM Netanyahu that Obama has gone out of his way at every opportunity to insult? The Israel that Obama is wanting to help dice up for the Palestinians? Or, the Israel of which Jerusalem is the Capital, that allows all religions to visit, that has now been removed from the Democrats Platform as being recognized as the Capital of Israel… ? (I have to mention that they took all mention of GOD out, as well…but it was replaced amidst “boos” when they figured they screwed up, and they couldn’t have proven, by me, that the majority wasn’t booing.)
Make no mistake… All of what is happening today, is directly related to Obama’s policies, with the help of Hillary Clinton. They have insulted our only ally in the Middle East, and betrayed them to their enemies to the point that the Israelis will no longer confide any secret information to this administration. And, the violence and hatred of Americans will only get worse toward Americans and America, because they have no respect for the Closet Muslim in office. He has bowed to the Saudi King–what Muslims do to the “keeper of the Islamic faith”, and apologized for our being strong and proud all over the world. Never in the history of this country, would these little savages have bowed up against the great America–until Barack Hussein Obama took it down. And, he isn’t finished… Or, I miss my guess about the agenda he has in store for us if he is re-elected.
Folks…None of this was any Surprise… I have been saying it was coming, and been attacked a thousand times over for saying that the extremists were not through with the Arab Spring, and that it was Extremists that Obama’s administration assisted with getting into the positions of power. This is not the end result…but only the beginnings of the end result. We are somewhere in between, now. All I can say, is REGISTER TO VOTE, AND VOTE–ABO: ANYBODY BUT OBAMA. If he gets a second term you will not recognize America when he is finished…that is, IF indeed his term EVER ends. And, I will save that “last” for another blog. God Bless America, our Troops, and the Patriots that will stand against all foes–Domestic, and Foreign….even if they be in the White House.
How prophetic this is. Please click on the link. This man, in about 2:45 seconds, told the story of how this country has come to the brink of extinction. It is amazing. That is all I can say.
We have the NDAA of last month, and the Executive Order of just this past week giving this President every power imaginable.
None of it may even matter if DICED, the UNs Environmental Constitution for the World, has its way. It is obviously intended to be a world constitution for global governance, an onerous way to control population growth, re-distribute wealth, force social and “economic equity and justice,” economic control, consumption control, land and water use control, and re-settlement control as a form of social engineering. By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
This information can be found in an article Cited by Dr. Paugh, titled “Agenda 21 on Steroids” by Debbie Coffey at http://ppjg.me/2012/03/14/agenda-21-on-steroids/ I received it in an email and posted it here, as follows:
I am sure there are many Americans who have no idea nor care what “The Draft International Covenant on Environment and Development” (DICED) is. They should. Some call the Draft Covenant “Agenda 21 on steroids” while others see it as the “Environmental Constitution of global governance.”
The first version of the Covenant was presented to the United Nations in 1995 on the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary. It was hoped that it would become a negotiating document for a global treaty on environmental conservation and sustainable development.
The fourth version of the Covenant, issued on September 22, 2010, was written to control all development tied to the environment, “the highest form of law for all human activity.”
The Covenant’s 79 articles, described in great detail in 242 pages, take Sustainable Development principles described in Agenda 21 and transform them into global law, which supersedes all constitutions including the U.S. Constitution.
All signatory nations, including the U.S., would become centrally planned, socialist countries in which all decisions would be made within the framework of Sustainable Development.
In collaboration with Earth Charter and Elizabeth Haub Foundation for Environmental Policy and Law from Canada, the Covenant was issued by the International Council on Environmental Law (ICEL) in Bonn, Germany, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) with offices in Gland, Switzerland and Cambridge, UK.
Federal agencies that are members of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) include U.S. Department of State, Commerce, Agriculture (Forest Service), Interior (Fish and Wildlife, National Park Service), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The same agencies are members of the White House Rural Council and the newly established White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities (Executive Order, March 15, 2012).
The Draft Covenant is a blueprint “to create an agreed single set of fundamental principles like a ‘code of conduct’ used in many civil law, socialist, and theocratic traditions, which may guide States, intergovernmental organizations, and individuals.”
The writers describe the Covenant as a “living document,” a blueprint that will be adopted by all members of the United Nations. They say that global partnership is necessary in order to achieve Sustainable (there’s that word again) Development, by focusing on “social and economic pillars.” The writers are very careful to avoid the phrase, “one world government.” Proper governance is necessary on all levels, “from the local to the global.” (p.36)
The Covenant underwent four writings, in 1995, 2000, 2004, and 2010, influenced by the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development, by ideas of development control and social engineering by the United Nations, “leveling the playing field for international trade, and having a common basis of future lawmaking.”
Article 3 proposes that the entire globe should be under “the protection of international law.”
Article 11 discusses “equity” and “equitable manner” which are code words for communism.
Article 16 requires that all member nations must adopt environmental conservation into all national decisions.
Article 20 requires that all nations must “mitigate the adverse effects of climate change.” If we ratify this document, we must thus fight a non-existent man-made climate change.
Article 31 requires the eradication of poverty by spreading the wealth from developed nations to developing countries.
Article 32 requires recycling.
Article 33 demands that countries calculate “the size of the human population their environment is capable of supporting and to implement measures that prevent the population from exceeding that level.”
Article 33 delineates long-term resettlement and estimating the “carrying capacity of the environment.”
Article 34 demands the maintenance of an open and non-discriminatory international trading system in which “prices of commodities and raw materials reflect the full direct and indirect social and environmental costs of their extraction, production, transport, marketing, and where appropriate, ultimate disposal.” The capitalist model of supply and demand pricing does not matter.
Article 36 describes military and hostile activities.
Article 39 decides management plans and quotas for permissible taking or “harvesting transboundary biological resources.”
Article 41 requires integrated planning systems, irrespective of administrative boundaries within a country, and is based on Paragraph 10.5 of Agenda 21, which seeks to “facilitate allocation of land to the uses that provide the greatest sustainable benefits and to promote the transition to a sustainable and integrated management of land resources.” The impact assessment procedure is developed by the World Bank.
“Aquifers, drainage basins, coastal, marine areas, and any areas called ecological units must be taken into account when allocating land for municipal, agricultural, grazing, forestry, and other uses.” Agricultural subsidies are discouraged, as well as subsidizing private enterprises.
“Physical planning must follow an integrated approach to land use – infrastructure, highways, railways, waterways, dams, and harbors. Town and country planning must include land use plans elaborated at all levels of government.”
Article 48 demands that biotechnology from research and development and royalties be shared; free access and transfer of technology is also required.
Article 51 reveals that we will have to pay for these repressive new requirements while Article 52 shows that we must pay 0.7 percent of GDP for Official Development Assistance. This reaffirms the political commitment made in Paragraph 33.13 of Agenda 21 in 1992.
Article 69 deals with settlement of disputes by an arbitrary tribunal such as the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, or the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea.
Article 71 describes the amendment process, which is submitted to the Secretary-General of the United Nations. UN Secretary-General would review the implementation of this document every five years.
Writers of the Draft Covenant are the UN Secretariat (the horse?) , international lawyers, and U.S. professors from Cornell (I hate this place!), Princeton, Pace University, Middlebury College, George Washington University Law School, Bucknell University, University of Indiana, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Meadville Theological School, University of the Pacific, two General Counsel Representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency, and two attorneys in private practice.
Since this Draft Covenant has a Preamble and 79 articles, it is obviously intended to be a world constitution for global governance, an onerous way to control population growth, re-distribute wealth, force social and “economic equity and justice,” economic control, consumption control, land and water use control, and re-settlement control as a form of social engineering.
Glenn Beck has: Is the Soros sponsored ‘Agenda 21’ a hidden plan for world government? (Yes, only it is not hidden)
So, some of you, that don’t read and understand “legalese”, seem to think the new NDAA Law does not apply to American Citizens. Let me explain that it does, and can be used against you. All that is required is the ACCUSATION of impropriety, or some form of conspiracy, or terrorism and they can STRIP you of your citizenship, under the law… Timing of the Law’s passage is right in line with too many other FREEDOM STEALING propositions, a fake shooting at the White House (testing), and the perfect MAJOR Crisis they will need to declare martial law. I am reading a most interesting dissection of the NDAA’s Legalese-Double Speak. I will post it on this blogspot, shortly. First, though…Read the following-Please. If you doubt that the same thing can happen here, then you aren’t listening to the Progressive Democrats (Socialists) in the Congress, and the President, or to the major scheming that Hillary is doing with the UN to take away our guns, and increase taxes on us for everything from use of energy, to the air we breathe–literally, and trying SOOOOO hard to treaty away our right to bear arms. They are selling our sovereignty to the UN, or better, paying them to take it away, since we are the largest Payers into the UN. After reading this article, please read the breakdown of the Double Speak on the NDAA, and try to understand how it can be applied to ANY person living in this country… Although the “kill” part shouldn’t worry you. If Obama and his henchmen haven’t killed you, yet, they will probably wait until they have you in a FEMA camp, because Lord only knows, they haven’t had a problem killing people to silence them for talking about Obama’s past. Too many in a close circle of friends, and acquaintances are dead for it to be coincidental–and they all had a TALE TO TELL, and were trying to warn of what and who this man really WAS and IS. They were silenced. I have convinced a few Liberals to re-think what they thought to be true–at least to wake up and evaluate what MIGHT be happening. All I can say, is if you draw the lines between this woman’s experiences, and what Obama is doing — along with the NDAA, your chances are better for ending up in a FEMA camp, detained and stripped of your citizenship without due process.
Kitty Werthmann is 85 years old
This is a SCARY piece of HISTORY.
Read & perhaps learn something new from HISTORY and “CHANGE”.
America truly is the Greatest Country in the World.
By: Kitty Werthmann
What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or will ever read in history books.
I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide – 98% of the vote. I’ve never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.
In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates.
Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.
The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna, Linz, and Graz, were destroyed. The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted.
We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group — Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.
We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.
After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.
Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.
Hitler Targets Education – Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:
Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang “Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,” and had physical education.
Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail. The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free. We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.
My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.
Equal Rights Hits Home:
In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.
Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps. During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys. They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines. When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat. Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.
Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:
When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children.. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.
Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:
Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.
As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.
We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.
We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.
“Mercy Killing” Redefined:
In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.
As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.
The Final Steps – Gun Laws:
Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.
No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.
Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.
After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria. Women were raped, preteen to elderly. The press never wrote about this either. When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process. They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn’t destroy, they burned. We called it The Burned Earth. Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses. Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized. Those who couldn’t, paid the price. There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians. This is an eye witness account.
“It’s true… those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

The author of this article lives in South Dakota and is very active in attempting to maintain our freedom. I encourage everybody to read this article and pass it along. I see so many parallels in this country, are we going to sit by and watch it happen? Spread the word; also contact your congressional reps; vote them out if they don’t do what they should. If you don’t want to be bothered, then you’re part of the problem! Google Kitty Werthmann and you will see articles and videos.
Back during the healthcare debate, President Obama was touting the great job nurses had done for him and his family while he had a daughter “in the hospital for three days with meningitis”. THERE IT IS. The lie. I was perturbed that there was a nurse smiling at his side, taking the podium to speak on behalf of the bill in the first place, but I was angry that every word that falls out of this man’s mouth is a lie! I AM a Nurse. I am a BSN RN–meaning it took me at least 4 years to complete the degree. I have a minor in microbiology, as well, so I understand “germs”. It is not possible that his daughter was hospitalized for 3 days with meningitis. First, a definitive diagnosis of meningitis is usually 24-36 hours in the making. The child showed symptoms for probably 12 hours or more before it was evident that it was more serious than parents thought, resulting in the trip to the doctor’s office, or to the emergency room. On arrival at the ER, the physician will do a spinal tap to see if the spinal fluid is cloudy–indicating infection, possibly meningitis. Often, it is not cloudy, and must be sent for culture and sensitivity testing. Culture is the growth and Sensitivity is finding out what will kill it. If it is viral there are not many things to use, because there are no antibiotics for viruses. Often, interventions involve treating the symptoms as they arise. And, viral meningitis is not over in 3 days. It can be lengthy, and it can lead to serious brain damage, though bacterial memingitis is usually longer and more serious. The shortest stay I’ve ever seen with a viral meningitis is 12 days. The average is close to 8 days, statistically. Now, there are bacterial infections that cause meningitis. Haemophilus Influenzae type B was a common bacterial infection that could become nasty very quickly leading to sepsis and meningitis before they had vaccination for it. Shortest hospitalization for that–7 days, without the meningitis. 12-21 days with it. These are relatively SHORT stays for meningitis. I had one pediatric patient that stayed in the hospital for over three months being actively treated for meningitis of a fungal nature, and then a few more weeks after they placed shunts in his brain for the damage it caused. A second flare up, caused by an as yet unidentified bacteria, resulted in a stay of close to 6 months, and replacement of the drainage shunts. Meningitis in infants and children–even healthy children with strong immune systems–takes awhile to diagnose and treat. It is more serious, with longer admission times than those of adults. So, the LIE was that his daughter had meningitis. “Suspected” meningitis is possible. Ruled out as some other infection and discharged home on the third day is very likely. But NOT meningitis. I absolutely LOVE how this man can pull a sick child example, or testimonial from some constituent out of his ass at the drop of a hat. Each time now, I listen for the “lie” and in most every case, it is something embellished to the point that it became a lie if it hadn’t started out as one. Then, to see that “idiot” grin on the nurses next to and behind him, and as they nodded agreement it seemed to give credence to his every word. I don’t know why it took me so long to say something, as I have been irritated by this particular scenario for the entire time between when he said it and now. I put on the bull shit filters and the lie detectors every time it is my misfortune to have to listen to him speak. BUT, I have to listen. I have to know what he is lying about today, so I can make my defenses for tomorrow. I will advise any who want to take it… Do not assume that all nurses are equal. There are many nurses that pass the license test. There are several levels of difficulty for that test, and several levels of education for the nurses. Believe me that there is a difference between an A+, High Honors graduate, and a C+ graduate–even though they both passed the board test. A nurse that made a C missed a great deal of information. And, I honestly believe that was the level of the dupe that stood behind Obama that morning, grinning ear to ear, and nodding her agreement as he lied and embellished his story to make it seem that somehow her insignificant self and others like her were important to him. He lied on top of lying. I have never read anywhere else that anyone else noticed this particular lie. I just wanted to put it out there for the general knowledge. I guess he subscribes to the Rahm Emanuel adage “never to waste a good crisis”. Hey… If he is not above using his kids to garner sympathy and support for his political gain, or the upper hand in the health care debate, what kind of man is he REALLY?
To anyone who’s interested… I seriously doubted that the “deal” made by the slithering snake of a President, Beohner, Reid, McConnell, and Biden was going anywhere. First of all, it wasn’t in the best interest of this country–You and Me–I don’t care who you are. It was suppose to avert a default and a downgrade in our credit rating by the very people who gave triple A status to the junk bonds being backed for the housing market for people that had “F” credit. It was to avert a recession, or worse, a depression. Guess what? Except for averting default, it has failed on all counts. And, as of yesterday, we have been downgraded.
We are not going to default. Default was never imminent and immediate. It IS in our future and we were sprinting toward it. Well, now, we are just speed walking. And, without significant changes, we are going to default at some point. With the way this debt ceiling was raised, we are now near 100% of the GDP. You simply can’t keep spending more than you sell, or take in for tax revenue. Not that hard to understand, RIGHT? It must be for the liberals. They want your money so badly, that YOU are being blamed as much as the Tea Party for the problem. All I’ve heard today is that the Bush Tax Breaks contribute to about 1/3 of the deficit. Now, because you work for your money that they assume they have a right to, it is basically your fault, and mine, that 1/3 of the deficit is building…and building…and building. Don’t know about you, but I’m working more than ever–fortunate to have a job– paying more tax into the IRS than ever, and haven’t had a raise in 5 years. My money is buying LESS than ever, while energy bills and gas to get to work are skyrocketing. Talk about entitlements…YOUR MONEY! The LIBERAL members of Congress and this President feel ENTITLED to the fruits of your labor! And, in an 11th hour rush, they are “compromising”. I hate that word. It boils down to cuts in the wrong places, an increase of 7 Trillion dollars in spending in the next 10 years, and only a 2.4 Trillion dollar cut in actual spending during that time. How did we get here…?
We got here to start with because a group of liberal fuddy duddies like Barney Frank, and Charlie Wrangle, among others, decided that Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac were solvent and financially strong. They were warned that they were in imminent danger of collapse on several occasions, by even McCain–whom I dislike for his more liberal than conservative views, except for when it becomes necessary to campaign. Then he has to stand for something a little closer to the conservative platform. That being said, McCain told the Congress 2 years before the housing market collapsed that those two entities were failing and needed fixing NOW. Barney Frank made a wonderful speech about the fear mongering of the GOP, and continued to say that they were strong. Obviously they weren’t. They were the first domino to fall; taking with them the housing market, hitting the stock market and causing it to tank, domino two. The banks started failing (next domino), and the markets continued to fall–taking your 401k with it, the next domino. Construction faltered. Lost jobs. Every business related to that lost jobs. Green energy programs and attacks on corporate America by the Obama administration cost more jobs. Trade agreements signed by Clinton sent jobs overseas, and with the threat of tax increases and regulation, what manufacturing that was left took a great deal of its business abroad, as well. Then, there was Obama care. That increases exponentially through the end of his term, and through 2020. The CBO has revisited its earlier analysis. They were playing smoke and mirrors with the numbers, which– if you paid attention–you already knew. Then, while he continues to “Blame Bush” for the mess he inherited, he has spent in 2 years 1/2 of what Bush spent in 8! The figures are BLACK and WHITE. And, while he blames Bush for the “mess he inherited”, it is as plain as the nose on your face that the problem started because of poor decisions geared toward and driven by the liberals. No…just because you live in America, you are not entitled to the American Dream. Well..Dream, maybe, but not the reality. The realization of the American Dream means you have to work for it. If you don’t work hard enough or have the job that pays well enough, you are not “entitled” to home ownership. Technically, if you don’t work, you are not entitled to eat or receive medical treatment, but in this country we do. Entitlements. And, if you come here illegally, we will feed, clothe, house, and educate you, too. Yeah, tax the soon to be extinct middle class to take care of the mostly worthless and non-productive. And, I am referring to those that live off Welfare cradle to grave–not those who have fallen on hard times and need just a little assistance until they get on their feet. Welfare should not be LIFELONG. Subsidized housing should not be LIFELONG. Food stamps should not be LIFELONG. Do away with the fraud in those, and the LIFELONG membership in those entitlements, as well as giving those benefits to illegals, and we would have money for a solvent Social Security Program and Medicare.
All of the above being said, WHAT ARE THEY THINKING–ANY OF THEM?! I helped to send the Tea Party to Washington. I am proud of what they stand for and are trying to do. But, what have they really accomplished? What can they accomplish? They have “repealed” Obama care in the House of Representatives. That was a great first start. It was killed in the Senate. That’s OK, Reid can’t live forever, literally or politically in charge. Then, they passed “Cut, Cap, and Balance”. An excellent concept and bill, I’m sure, but we never saw it. Once again tabled by Reid–whom I remind you again, can’t live forever. Then, we have the Boehner plan, the McConnell plan, the Reid plan, the party of six, ad nauseum. Now, we have a compromise. A rushed, probably very bad bill that passed in the House. Nancy Pelosi (who is still looking for the Ruby Slippers and “her little dog, too…”) told her fellow Democrats to vote their conscience. It passed in bi-partisan fashion.
Now, let me say this. I totally support what the Tea Party stands for. Responsibility. Don’t condemn them for not getting something done. They have brought it to the attention of the American public that they understand spending is far out of control, and they ARE trying. They are unable to stand on PRINCIPLE, alone. Already, the Democratic-Progressive propaganda machine is kicking the blame game into high gear, looking for the way to spin this hold up in legislation on the Tea Party and House Republicans. They are the only portion of the legislative branch that has done its job! They have passed legislation since taking office and control of the House–something the Senate hasn’t. The Senate hasn’t even passed a budget in over 800 days. Hey, folks, that’s more than two years. Realistically, any bill that clears the House is “D.O.A.” according to Harry Reid. Nothing can become law until it passes both houses of Congress. The Republicans only control 1/3 of the power. Do the math. It is a valiant, yet losing battle to think they can ram something through like the backdoor dealing democrats did with Obamacare, while they had the super majority in both houses, and the Socialist President. Never forget how Nancy Pelosi whipped even the blue dog democrats into shape to vote for something they were against, and whom I’ve heard have contributed to voting to repeal it.
America…keep the faith. We really do have a strong group of new blood in Washington. And, yes they have and are trying to stand on Principle. They need more than that, and because of the way our legislative branch is set up, and the voting is rotated by thirds in the Senate, we were not able to send the necessary personnel to the Senate in the 2010 election to put teeth in their bite. Constitutionally, they are defeated until we American voters send the back up in the Senate they so badly need. We made a statement in 2010. A historical statement. We said stop the spending. Stop the taxing. Stop growing the Government. And, stop the attack on our Free Market system, you Socialist. We sent the road block to the Democratic-Progressive agenda, and so far, they have done their best to hold the line. They have been somewhat successful, until this debt debate. Just remember, they can’t pass anything solely in one house of Congress. By the same token, the Senate can’t pass anything without them. Effective as a roadblock, but unable to pass desired legislation. They can thank the Constitution for that. And, they need to realize its constraints–the same constraints they (we) are trying to get back to; American Constitutional Law and Government. Realizing and accepting to some degree those limitations is key to them being effective and credible. Don’t promise me something you can’t carry through with. And, you can’t. So be the effective roadblock until we can get the support in the Senate to help pass legislation to put this country back on track.
And, by the way, don’t forget the FAIR TAX… As I told my Congressman (more than once this month), it is easy to say increase taxes when you pay nothing into the treasury. If you are so big on the idea of paying taxes, we welcome your contribution. FAIR TAX. No more IRS. No more tax forms. Tax every American, and every one that buys goods. The revenue would be more reliable. The burden would not be as great. Stop the CLASS warfare. The wealthy can leave and pull their money completely out of this country. The middle class is already working 4-5 months a year to pay the IRS. A great many things have changed as far as the “poverty” level in this country. Even most the poorest families have several TVs, cell phones, internet, computers, cars, food, and a house over them. How is that different from me? Well, I have nothing left after paying my debts responsibly and paying the government. Because they aren’t spending on food, paying less for housing, and covered by free medical insurance, any money they have they can spend as they wish–and pay no taxes because they fall into the poverty level. Even in the hardest times, people spend on necessities. Fair Tax is the only fair and rational solution.
