Dementia or Dishonesty, Pelosi Is Unfit for Office

pelosi

While it still requires a willing suspension of reality to believe Rep. Nancy Pelosi (P-CA), wasn’t the spearhead of the dishonesty campaign when she stood before the American people and professed that Congress had to pass Obamacare before we could all understand what was in the bill, her latest declaration about MIT professor Jonathan Gruber doesn’t. What it does evoke is a legitimate question. Is Nancy Pelosi a habitual liar or is she suffering from dementia?

When asked about Johnathan Gruber’s admitting to the overt deception of the American people where the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was concerned, Pelosi responded:

“I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill…and…so…with all due respect to your question, you have a person who wasn’t writing our bill commenting on what was going on when we were writing the bill…”

Yet, in 2009 when Pelosi and her congressional lemmings were selling the snake oil of Obamacare to the American people, she said:

“Our bill brings down rates…I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber’s MIT’s analysis of what the comparison is to the status quo, versus what will happen in our bill…”

Let’s set aside for a moment that Ms. Pelosi’s declaration that rates would go down was about as wrong as it gets – pathetically and predictably wrong. Are we to believe that the two juxtaposed statements were simply a slip up; just a malfunction of her gray matter? Again, to sign on to that idea requires a willing suspension of reality.

No, it is more likely – and probable – that Ms. Pelosi is demonstrating the Progressive ethic of “ends justifying the means.” Under that ethic, the truth is relative to the outcome desired. To Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Gruber, President Obama and Valerie Jarrett, just to name the major players, lying to; deceiving, the American people to achieve the passage of Obamacare was a necessary evil. To the Progressives – who, incidentally, believe as Jonathan Gruber does that the overwhelming majority of American people are a dull, slow-witted intellectually challenged under-class in need of their brilliance, wisdom, and superior stewardship, lest we all revert back to the ethos of the Stone Age – it is irrelevant that deception was used to acquire their legislative goal, after all, we are simply too stupid to know what is good for us; what is good for society.

This understood, it is easy to see that Ms. Pelosi’s flip-flop on the Grubster wasn’t about a defective memory, it was about sticking to the Progressive meme, not unlike John Lovitz’s Saturday Night Live character “The Liar.” The only thing missing was the rhetorical punctuation, “Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket!”

If Ms. Pelosi were afflicted with dementia rather than Progressivism, I would be sympathetic to her plight. No one can control the ravages of dementia; a tragic and debilitating disease. But she isn’t – to the best of my knowledge – afflicted with dementia, she is afflicted with Progressivism, an ideological malady, and one that a person has to make a conscious decision to foist upon themselves; a malady choke full of arrogance, elitism, condescension and malevolence for your fellow man. I cannot suffer the fools who inflict this malady upon themselves.

As for Ms. Pelosi, the point is moot. Whether it had been dementia rather than Progressivism is irrelevant, both maladies should preclude someone from holding public office. Sadly, not only was Ms. Pelosi re-elected as a US Representative in her congressional district, she was re-elected to party leadership in her chamber.

Do you see how Progressivism rots the brain?

Strike 9! You’re out!

US-POLITICS-OBAMA

I believe in giving people many chances… as long as they are willing to work at correcting it. I never fired anyone for making mistakes at work, as long as I knew we had properly instructed them in their duties, that they were working at making it better, and that the mistake, though possibly costing the company money, was an honest mistake and not malicious in any way. We always gave them a numerous chances, unless the person made no effort to fix the behavior or patterns causing the issues.

Some employees come into a job thinking they have all the answers, they know better than the boss, and they could actually run the company better than anyone else. In most cases they are dead wrong! I also found that in most cases, when I gave these people management responsibilities to prove a point, I was right and they would fail miserably. Interestingly, they would always blame it on someone else. Sound like someone you know?

Me too. Enter Mr. Obama.

First let me say, don’t waste the electrons writing emails to me telling me how other Administrations have lied to us in the past. Like the national debt, Mr. Obama and his Administration have racked up lying stats as never seen before in this nation’s history. It’s almost like their M.O. (modus operandi) is to tell everything in lie format that way you never have to worry about the truth.

There are more and more “main stream” journalists and news reporters coming out in agreement that this Administration will be known as the most secretive Administration ever! In Sharyl Attkisson’s book “Stonewalled” she goes over story after story (confirmed) as to how this Administration purposely mislead the news media or didn’t answer questions all together with intent to keep them in the dark from what really happened in situations like Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, and Obamacare.

Do you know that not once, not one time, has this Administration come out to the podium on the first round and admitted to making a mistake and shared how they were going to fix it? And when they finally do admit to the “mistake,” they blamed it on another agency or someone else.

My new question is… Is lying just part of being a Democrat? I hope not. I have many friends that are Democrats. They are nothing like those on Capitol Hill. Mr. Obama, Mr. Reid, Mrs. Pelosi, Mr. Holder, just to name a few, have been caught in “serial lies.” They work off of each other to keep a lie in the air and Americans confused. But it’s not working.

According to inside sources, even Hillary Clinton had the good sense to back out of these issues. She refused to go out on the interview circuit days after the Benghazi attack because as she put it “I’m not going out into that mess.”

Yes, Obama “stays the course” of lie, lie, and keep lying some more until “they” finally believe it. I don’t know who “they” are any longer because fewer and fewer believe what he’s trying to sell.

Do you think, really think, the White House knew nothing of what Professor Gruber said this week. You know, that the healthcare bill was drafted to hide the fact that it was a tax and that they were banking on the ignorance of the American people’s blind trust in the president? Do you really think that Mr. Reid, Mrs. Pelosi, and Mr. Biden didn’t know how they were going to have to prostitute (no insult meant to prostitutes) themselves to sell this to the American people?

Random Thoughts On Robert O’Neill, New Obamacare Revelations and Brain Implants

        

Rob O'Neill F

Obamacare image mbj.jpg (285×177)

Recently former Navy Seal Robert O’Neill, the man who shot and killed Osama Bin Laden appeared in a two part special on Fox News telling in detail of the experience. Many of O’Neill’s former seals who were with him were against him going public like this and I can’t blame them. The seals are a highly trained, secretive, specialized and elite force that keeps us safe. O’Neill told how they are trained and gave graphic detail explanations of how they trained for the mission and how they performed it and how he shot three shots in Bin Laden’s face. By doing this our enemies now know all about the seals now and how they operate.  No wonder his fellow seals are angry with him.

O’Neill has now painted a big target on his back and on that of his family and town. Terrorists now know where he lives and places he hangs out and who his family are and the danger is further enhanced  by these lone wolf attacks we are experiencing now.  I hope not for his sake as this is a very brave and great man who with his other seal team members  put their lives on the line and did what was right and wiped the evil of Osama Bin Laden off the face of the earth,but I can’t help but feel there are some terrorists out there who want to get this  brave man and avenge their leader.The media is further exploiting him by having him appear in person on various shows.

O’Neill said he went public to give closure to the 9/11 families which he spoke before, but all the papers and media reported this when it happened and the movie Zero Dark Thirty depicted  how the raid went  down so in all due respects to the 9/11 families who my heart goes out to how much more closure do they need?……….

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber has called the American people stupid to Obamacare saying if they only knew what ‘s in it.  Remember when Nancy Pelosi stupidly said, “We have to pass it to know what’s in it?” Well here are a few things explained that are in it that should make you all mad as hell and demand they get rid of it. Obama said he will veto any repeal of Obamacare,but the new republican congress should use the power of the purse and defund it.

Here are three crucial changes that the president clearly didn’t want you to know about:

1. HUGE DEFICITS AND NEW TAXES.
 According to the Congressional Budget Office, the latest projections for the net cost of ObamaCare over the next ten years are just over $1.4 trillion. Whereas President Obama promised in 2009 that it wouldcost less than $1 trillion over ten years. In order to partially pay for this, ObamaCare has added more than 20 new taxes totaling over $500 billion.

  1. BUREAUCRACY.Speaking of Orwellian politics, ObamaCare includes159 new boards and agencies to restrict and govern your health care choices. (These are the death panels Sarah Palin spoke about and will come under the Independent Advisory  Board)3. STILL MORE BUREAUCRACY. Dysfunctional state exchanges with high deductible policies, narrow doctor networks, including federally-run exchanges in 36 states which may not be allowable under the law (SCOTUS currently considering this case).

Here are three new things coming up in 2015 that you aren’t going to like:

1. PENALTIES WILL RISE – INDIVIDUAL MANDATE. 
In 2014, people are facing a penalty of $95 per person or 1% of income. 

In 2015, the penalty will more than triple to $325 per person or 2% of income, whichever is higher. 

If an American failed to get coverage this year, the penalty will be taken out of their tax refund in early 2015.

2. SERIOUS RATE HIKES FOR CHEAPER OBAMACARE PLANS. According to Investor’s Business Daily, the lowest cost bronze plan will increase an average of 7 % in many cases, the lowest cost silver plan by 9%, and the lowest priced catastrophic policy will climb 18 percent on average. Double digit rate hikes are anticipated in several southern and Midwestern states including Kansas, Iowa, Louisiana, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Iowa, and Virginia.

Subsidies will continue to be a huge part of the program. In 2014, subsidies provided ¾ of the premiums for the federally-run exchanges.

3. EMPLOYER MANDATE WILL TAKE EFFECT. After being delayed for a year, large businesses (100 or more employees in 2015, 50 or more in 2016) will be required to offer affordable (and subsidized) health plans to at least 70 percent of their full time employees or face a $2,000-$3,000 penalty per employee) REMEMBER  OBAMCARE IS NOT ABOUT HEALTHCARE, IT’S ABOUT CONTROL ……..

Would you be willing to have a computer chip placed in your brain to give you closer and unlimited and very personal use of the internet? Would you want the government controlling and recording your thoughts? Well according to a survey by tech giant Cisco Systems, about a fourth of professionals ages 18 to 50 would leap at the chance to get a surgical brain implant that allowed them to instantly link their thoughts to the Internet. No wonder people like Obama get in office. I guess these people want to be automatons. George Orwell (1984)  and Aldous Huxley (Brave New World) must be smiling somewhere and saying a big “I told you so.”

The styudy was conducted on 3,700 adults working in white-collar jobs in 15 countries.

“Assuming a company invented a brain implant that made the World Wide Web instantly accessible to their thoughts, roughly one-quarter would move forward with the operation,” the study found.

Generation Y professionals, those born in the 1980s through 2000, were only slightly more apt to say they would get the surgery, at 26 percent, versus 21 percent of Gen Xers or those born from the early 1960s through the early 1980s.

Obama: Just A Footnote In History

On a recent interview on Face The Nation, Obama said “There are times, there’s no doubt about it, where, you know I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we’re trying to do and why this is the right direction.” Really Obama, really, after six years you are trying to tell us that your policies have not worked because you and your fellow Democrats did a poor selling job?

Well, I have news for Obama, It’s not his poor selling job that has turned America against his policies, it’s because they are failed policies. The truth be known, that after six years of trying to shove every Liberal idea down America’s throat, America is finally saying enough. America has seen Liberalism up close and they do not like what they see, after six years all of his lies and deceit are bubbling up to the surface, which just proves, you cannot build on a foundation of lies.

With the video of Obama-Care architect Jonathan Gruber out there for all Americans to see, the rest of America now knows what many of us have known from the beginning, that Obama-Care was nothing but a scam, just a big transfer of wealth scam to satisfy his Socialist agenda. Gruber said, “They proposed it and that passed, because the American people are too stupid to understand the difference.” This is what the Democratic Party really thinks of the American people, in one way I have to agree with Gruber, a people that votes twice to elect Obama must be stupid, although I must give them a little bit of a  pass, because after all, they cast their vote for lies, not for truth.

The Democratic-Liberal-Progressive agenda is clear, lie to the American people and let big government run their lives, because after all, the American people are too stupid to know what is good for them. I believe we are now 70% Capitalist and 30% Socialist, Obama is trying as hard as he can to make this country 70% Socialist and many people are going along for the ride, not knowing what is in store for them at the end of the ride.

Obama also said, “I think that what you’ll see is a constant effort to improve the way we deliver service to customers…experimenting with ways that I can reach out to Republicans more effectively. Making sure that we’re reaching out and using the private sector more effectively.”

Obama has never offered as much as a finger to the Republicans, let’s face it, he does not want their in-put on anything, he truly believes that he is King of the United States, instead of president. Obama’s only legacy will be that he was the first black president, that is how he will be remembered, Obama-Care will crumble before it can be repealed, once that goes there is nothing else left.

Obama is a president that history will want to forget, a president that did nothing to improve America, but only weakened us at home and in the eyes of the world. Obama’s legacy will become nothing more than a footnote in the history books.

About My Stubborn Teenager!

ObamaHALFfinal

Don’t you feel like you’re dealing with a stubborn teenager every time you hear and see President Obama speak? Even his own party has started to look on him with distain and disgust.

He did nothing (thank God!) to help his party win or keep seats, except raise money! We learned several things in this last election. You really can’t buy votes, and negative ads are no longer effective.

There were several high-profile elections across the country where one candidate was outspent 3, 4, or 5-to-one and yet, the underdog still won. Why? As much as I like to say people aren’t paying attention, the average voter seems to be paying attention enough to be irritated with all those negative ads and mailers that bombard them during election time, and it takes lots of money to do that.

Based on many of the president’s comments this week, he has a real problem grasping reality. I’m wondering if the clowns at MSNBC, CNN, and those other so-called news outlets were drinking the same Kool-Aid he’s been drinking.

They were all dumbfounded at the election outcome. What happened? How could this be? Chris Matthew’s tingle down his leg became a jolt to his cerebral cortex. One or two of the commentators had their medication wear off early, as was the case with Ed Shultz, who admitted this was a vote against Obama’s policies but wouldn’t admit that the people were right about the policies being bad.

The president is like your teenage child who never does anything wrong and never has a bad idea. This week the votes were against policy. His policy. His agenda. He can’t see it. Has your teenager ever come home with a D or F on their test, only to tell you it was the teacher’s fault? They didn’t explain the subject properly. They didn’t give you enough warning about the test. They didn’t word the questions properly. They didn’t give you enough time. Blah blah blah. Not my fault!

That’s what we heard all week. Mr. Obama made many statements like, “Well, only a third of the American populous voted,” insinuating that “the people” hadn’t spoken. Yes, when he wins an election or a Democrat wins an election, no matter how slim the margin or how many come out to vote, its a “mandate” and an affirmation of the work he is doing. But the reverse doesn’t hold up.

This “teenager” has had to stop using phrases like, “the war on women,” “gender inequality,” “they want you back in chains,” and “they want you sick and dead” just to mention a few.

The temper tantrum won’t be tolerated any longer. The American people have spoken. They want the teenager grounded. They want us to take away his keys and put a curfew on him. I hope the new guardians will do exactly that.

When Obama saw the writing on the wall Tuesday evening he asked for a bipartisan meeting that took place last Friday. Most figured it would be a “Hey, you guys won, I don’t want to yell and fight each other over the next two years let’s see what we can agree on and move forward” moment.

But no! That ever stubborn teenager in him would not let go! He let everyone in attendance know that he would fight the fight because the American people were on his side (obviously a very confused man) and he would basically stay the course.

He made the comment several times that Republicans needed to pass legislation that he would be happy with. Huh?! What about passing legislation that will benefit the American people, for the greater good, not for his good? Does he not realize this isn’t a party thing? He is used to going to Pelosi and Reid and saying bring me this bill with these terms in it and they go like good little Borg drones and do as told.

Same-Sex Marriage: I Warned You This Would Happen

Well, I warned you this would happen, as soon as they legalized same-sex marriage. In  three of my books, America, A Society Gone Wrong, What Kind Of Society Are We Leaving Our Kids and Hey Alan Colmes I Read Your Book, A Republicans Rebuttal, I talked about what would happen to our society because of same-sex marriage, now it’s starting.

Here is a head-line form a recent article in a New York newspaper; NY State blesses “incest” marriage between uncle, niece. The story went on to say, “The states highest court has toppled a cultural taboo, legalizing a degree of incest, at least between an uncle and niece, in a unanimous ruling.”

“While the laws against parent-child and brother-sister marriages are grounded in the almost universal horror with which such marriages are viewed, there is no comparably strong objection to uncle-niece marriages.” the ruling reads.

Once you change the definition of marriage the fabric of society will start to crumble.  Marriage equality; has anyone considered the consequences if a law like that passes? Opening up marriage equality means not only two men or two women, but what about four men getting married or four women? A law like that will have to allow a man to have a harem, why if a man wants ten wives, he must be allowed to have them because that is marriage equality. How about group marriages, a group of twenty people want to get married and live under one roof, which would falls under marriage equality as well.

Don’t you think that there are wackos out there that would love to marry their pets? You wait and see, if this marriage equality thing comes to pass, it won’t be long before some people line up to get married to their dogs or horses, marriage equality right? What about mother and son or father and daughter, brother and sister, marriage equality means just that. Something like this can open up a whole can of worms; there are plenty of wackos at there.

18 state attorneys general voiced their concerns: “Once the natural limits that inhere in the relationship between a man and a woman can no longer sustain the definition of marriage, the conclusion that follows is that any grouping of adults would have an equal claim to marriage,” they wrote. The left’s fierce push for “gay marriage” has nothing to do with “marriage equality” and everything to do with “marriage extinction.” There has to be a definition of marriage, or anything has to be allowed. How true.

Then there is this story. WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)–“Waterbury Police are investigating after a woman had to confront a naked man at gunpoint while he allegedly performed sexual acts on her pit bull Tuesday morning. The man is believed to be suffering from mental health issues.” Yes, mental issues, it’s called Liberalism. Society is crumbling, there is no doubt about it, in time I am sure that man will marry that dog, I mean we have to have marriage equality, right?

That Wasn’t A Blitz,That Was A Blountz :D

Hey Congress, You voted for Obamcare,

Now we’re voting you out of there,

We the people have awakened to your tricks,

You voted to let this pass,

Now you’re going to be out on your _ _ _(horn sound rhymes with pass)-___

Ray Stevens, “We the People.” (see link below for this great video by Ray) :D

In a crushing defeat to democrats, republicans took control of both houses since five years ago and the biggest defeat in 65 years thanks to we  the people. Now is not the time to get compliant and celebrate too long and get down to business. They have to be strong, competent and confrontational and show leadership and not this cow towing, compromise and ‘try to be nice so they like us’ crap. They have to come up with a definite plan and stick to it. That plan should include repealing “every word of Obamcare” as Ted Cruz says and securing our borders and fixing the economy.

Obama has run out of people to blame for his incompetence. They’re all under the Obama bus. Let’s hope the GOP actually does something good for the Country! Otherwise, the reverse will happen next election. Joe Biden said if the republicans took over the dems would compromise with them. I really doubt that is going to happen since they haven’t compromised with the house  in five years now.

Obama is seething now and will pull all the stops out to complete his radical agenda of transforming America into a third world country equal to all the other countries in the world. He said he’ll use his pen and phone and rule by executive orders, but the republicans must stop him at every chance to save our beloved country from this fake presidential traitor with fake credentials.

If I were an illegalI I’d be royally teed off at Obama. First he promised them amnesty,then he put it off until right after the elections now he says not until Christmas. The same with healthcare, normally healthcare companies announce their rates by mid October, but Obama put a halt on that  until after the elections so as not to hurt his democrats, but it didn’t help them and now when people see their rates go sky high they will be  hitting the roof.

In an article  appearing on CNN: “ A Republican tide ripped the Senate away from Democrats Tuesday, giving the GOP full control of Congress and the power to pin down President Barack Obama during his last two years in office.

The thumping win upends the balance of power between the White House and Capitol Hill only six years after Obama’s Democrats swept to power and marginalized Republicans in a rush to reform health care, Wall Street and pass a huge stimulus package.

Now, it’s Democrats who will take the back seat on Capitol Hill, relying mostly on the power of the filibuster to stymie Republicans and keep Obama’s legacy i

“For too long, this administration has tried to tell the American people what is good for them and then blame somebody else when their policies didn’t work out,” Mitch McConnell, who is expected to become the next Senate majority leader, said in a victory speech.

In the House, CNN projected the GOP will have at least 246 seats, its largest majority since World War II. Speaker John Boehner, celebrating a widened majority, said he is “humbled by the responsibility the American people have placed with us.”

“But this is not a time for celebration,” he said. “It’s time for government to start getting results and implementing solutions to the challenges facing our country, starting with our still-struggling economy.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has controlled the Senate since 2007, congratulated Republicans on their victory.

“The message from voters is clear: they want us to work together,” Reid said. “I look forward to working with Senator McConnell to get things done for the middle class.”

 Yeah,We’ll see Harry, we’ll see.

President Irritated and Aggressive after humbling loss to opponents

969eobama-sad-frown-16

President Obama is unhappy with the results of Tuesday’s election and according to news reports has become “irritated” and “aggressive” much like a hormonal teenager.

November 4th was a day that should live in humility for the President after having his agenda, politics, ideology and strategy all rebuffed by the people of the United States.

This election was not about some failure to interpret data, numbers, or robo-calling messaging – it was a basic referendum on the processes, actions, inactions and cowardice on the part of the President.

Now, Obama is threatening to capitalize the ‘B’ in bully where his agenda is concerned.

What should America expect after rejecting the President’s agenda? More of the President’s agenda unless the newly elected Congressional majority (once placed into power in January) uses the power of the purse to reject his coming executive orders on immigration reform, greenhouse gasses, firearms restrictions and more.

The question America should have for the new GOP majority – do you have the nuts to deal with an even more aggressive President Obama?

NIXONcampaigns

I for one am petrified! My prediction is that we take the Senate and keep the House. Pretty easy. Then what?

Here is my concern. As in the Middle East, we helped to defeat many regimes and get the “bad guys” out of power. We allowed the people to run themselves and look what happened. We left a void of power. A void direction. A void of leadership. And in stepped ISIS after only a few short years.

Well, let’s see… if the votes aren’t stolen, bought, or electronically altered, I see the Republicans taking/keeping both houses. They will undoubtedly act like pent up college kids who run amok after finally moving out of daddy and mommy’s house.

I don’t see any leadership. Unless the Republicans actually have a strategy, and the leadership to carry it out, we lose everything in 2016. Has anyone seen a strategy to this point? Other than knock the president and call the other guys bad, I haven’t seen one. Not that they shouldn’t call them out on bad policy and bad behavior. The president surely has fallen flat on his face and deserves the criticism. And with all the games the Dems have played, they also deserve to be ousted. But there will be a power vacuum without a game plan.

Republicans are fighting from within, he moderates vs. conservatives. Moderates are pushing hard to drop or back off the social issues while conservatives state that we need a strong stance on God, country, guns, marriage, and abortion. Conservatives say that without those things we are no better than “them” (the Dems).

John Boehner has never really pushed back on this Administration with any real foundation or backbone. Many in the Party are upset with his lack of leadership and resolve. But because of the way politics is played in DC, many will still vote for him to remain Speaker of the House because they want their cushy Committee appointments. Trey Goudy is a real contender and should be the one they pass the reins to. He has the leadership ability, backbone, and resolve to make a difference. He calls it as it is, in real time. He doesn’t allow the lies to go unchecked or unchallenged and, sadly, that’s why he probably won’t be the next Speaker. Many of the “Old Guard” would be afraid they would be scrutinized and held accountable and, Heaven forbid, be expected to produce results……………..

RE: The US Senate Race in Kansas

voting2

“Independent” Greg Orman, who has so many Democrat Party operative working on his campaign one expects to see Nancy Pelosi’s name on his campaign headquarters door, has stated that he will caucus with whatever party presents the best ideas.

Mr. Orman’s campaign website states:

“If Greg is elected, there’s a reasonable chance that neither party would have a majority in the US Senate. If that is the case, he will work with the other independent Senators to caucus with the party that is most willing to face our country’s difficult problems head on and advance our problem-solving, non-partisan agenda.”

Therein lays the problem, and a perfect example of: a) how constitutionally illiterate our political class has become; b) how constitutionally illiterate our citizenry has become; and c) why the 17th Amendment is the most damaging action ever executed by the Progressive Left throughout US history.

When the Progressives of the early 20th Century marshaled through the 17th Amendment, they did a great damage to the symbiotic set of checks and balanced that achieved protections for both the individual and the individual states, where the power of the federal government was concerned. Under the guise of putting more control of government into the hands of the people, the Progressives, under Woodrow Wilson, literally destroyed the check and balance that protected state sovereignty and, through that erosion, the sovereignty of the individual.

At its inception, the US Constitution mandated, in Article I, Section 3, that:

“The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote…”

The appointment of senators by the state legislators thwarted political faction on the floor of the US Senate. With each senator held accountable by their respective state legislatures for their votes, alliances and actions, the onus for political survival for the senatorial class was devotion to the well-being of their home states. The political ideology or factional allegiance of the senator was irrelevant for the most part. If a senator chose political party over the needs of his home state, the state legislature could – and would – simply recall him through an act the State House, replacing the senator with someone who held allegiance to his home state – and the constitution of that home state – above national political faction.

Understanding this original intent that the Framers built into the Constitution, the idea of Obamacare, or suffocating national debt, or an aggressive IRS, EPA or NSA, would never have come to be. The unfunded mandates of Obamacare would have seen the 54 senators from the 27 states that refused to establish ACA health insurance exchanges – and most likely more from states that did – voting against the bill in its infancy because the legislation harms the well-being of the individual states and usurps the authority of most every state’s constitution. So too, the national debt would never have been allowed to accumulate because it passes down to the citizens of individual states. The IRS would be little more than a gaggle of accountants, the EPA would not exist and the NSA wouldn’t be allowed to operate on US soil, if at all.

Simply put, there would be no party politics in the US Senate. It would be an assembly of representatives of each state’s government, tasked specifically and exclusively with the protection of the home state and her constitution. The passage of the 17th Amendment killed that protection and facilitated political faction on a national level to metastasize in the US Senate, something Pres. George Washington warned vehemently about in his Farewell Address.

The 17th Amendment mandates:

“The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote…”

By tricking – and that’s exactly what the Progressives did – the populace into thinking the popular election of their senators gave them more power over government, it literally established the opposite; delivering great power to national political parties and the federal government, while extinguishing an essential check and balance over said political parties and the federal government. The 17th Amendment took power away from the people and the states, and delivered it to the political parties and the federal government.

So, why is the Senatorial Election in Kansas a perfect example of constitutional illiteracy and Progressive manipulation? Would the 17th Amendment have not been passed Mr. Orman wouldn’t need – or aspire – to caucus with any political faction or party. He would, instead, be carrying out the will of the Kansas State Legislature and, through them, the will of the people of his state. There would be no need – or desire – to “caucus” with those of any particular political “flavor” because the well-being of each state is dictated by the needs of each state and her people, not the leaders of any political party.

To wit, imagine that the 17th Amendment had never passed, or that a smart-thinking Congress repealed it. No longer would we see any – any – legislative gridlock; no longer would we amass unrepayable debt; no longer would we see hyper-partisan or ideological pieces of legislation rammed down our throats; no longer would the American people – and her government – be held hostage to politics…no long would the American people be held hostage to politics.

Still think Progressives are on the side of the people? Yeah, neither do I…I haven’t for a very, very long time.

He’s Free! Now What?

President Obama has stated that he had a pen and a phone and would use it if Congress didn’t act. He insinuates that they do nothing to help the American people. He seems to forget that there are over 380 bipartisan bills sitting on his top lapdog, Harry “Hindlick” Reid’s desk who refuses to bring them to the floor for a vote. Why? If they are truly bad and Reid has control of the Senate, and his minions, then there shouldn’t be an issue. Maybe he can call Reid and knock them lose? Never mind. I know his phone is dead!
The phone has to be dead, because for 214 days he was unable to make a phone call on behalf of Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi to Mexican President Enrique Nieto. He also was not able to get Secretary John Kerry on the phone, nor was he able to reach California Governor Jerry Brown who hosted the Mexican president in California to discuss the issue with either of them. Interestingly, a State Department spokesman said they had visited the Sergeant several times in prison. Apparently, he was too doped up to remember.
At first I thought the president must be working behind the scenes with his staff and team like he did to secure Bowe Bergdahl’s release, right? That had to be it. After all, getting one Marine who made a wrong turn out of a Mexican prison had to be so much easier than releasing 5 terrorists who swore Jihad on Americans in exchange for one potential traitor and deserter, right? Wrong!
I believe President Obama, once again, showed his contempt for our military men and women by completely ignoring Andrew’s issue. Really, how easy would this have been? Obama calls Nieto. “Yo Nieto, help me out here. I need to get a boatload of these Dems re-elected so we can set up some more watering stations in the desert for your people to be able to make it across the border safely, that way they can work and send money home for you to steal it from them. I can’t do that if we don’t win. So send the marine home. Tell them what a great job I and my administration did to negotiate a release and I can almost guarantee open borders for all. Waddaya say?” Sounds easy enough. Or he could have suspended NAFTA with that pen of his until he was released.
All I can figure is that what the president did was to respect another country’s legal system and allow their laws to play out. I guess Mexico doesn’t have an “executive order” clause for Nieto to use whenever he feels like it.
Looking back, it was the “do-nothing” Congress, not the “do-everything-wrong-and-in-secret” Administration that got Andrew released. It was several Republican representatives, including Dana Rohrabacher, Ed Royce, Matt Salmon, and former Governor Bill Richardson who went to Mexico and kept applying pressure to the Mexican Attorney General. The judge didn’t release Andrew. It was the AG who dropped the charges forcing the judge to release Andrew.
One unnamed source said that when the AG was explaining how America should understand that Mexico is a “rule of law” country and allow Mexico’s legal system to run its course, the representative basically responded, “So is America, would you like us to allow our legal system to work as it pertains to illegal immigration?

The Lightening-Fast Reflexes of the Obama Regime

The Obama Administration’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, announced October 28th that his agency has raised the security level for federal buildings in the aftermath of last week’s terror attacks in Canada:

“The reasons for this action are self-evident: the continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland and elsewhere, including against law enforcement and other government officials, and the acts of violence targeted at government personnel and installations in Canada and elsewhere recently,” Johnson said in a statement. “Given world events, prudence dictates a heightened vigilance in the protection of US government installations and our personnel.”

Aren’t you absolutely bowled over by the cat-like reflexes of the Obama Administration? I mean really, we have only seen the fall of every major town in Iraq, sans Baghdad, the engagement of even Islamist countries in the fight against the Islamic State, beheadings and actual declarations of violent intent from the Islamic State and associated Islamist terror groups. We have seen “faceless selfies” of wanna-be jihadis and jihadist sympathizers featuring signs with pro-Islamic State propaganda in front of buildings in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC. And we have seen beheadings on American soil in the name of Islam. Why should we expect any meaningful and/or timely response from an administration that is still trying to figure out if an infectious disease should warrant a quarantine of travelers arriving from infected countries?

Oh sure, the brilliant mind that is Barack Obama doesn’t succumb to the knee-jerk decision, especially where national security and foreign policy are concerned. That’s probably why he is still deliberating the security of the US border in the face of Islamist terrorists who have declared they will bring car bombs and beheadings to US soil; and why he is purposely ignoring the transportation of infectious disease across the border in the form of Enterovirus 68. Titrated to the Obama Administration’s response rate to serious issues facing the American citizenry, he will probably see our border secured after the 27th car bomb goes off in New York (after he chastises politicians there for their kneejerk Islamophobic responses) and after all of the schools in every state on the Southern border are quarantined.

My deference to Mr. Obama’s intelligence, and his ability to react in a timely manner to any crisis, is Obviously mired in sarcasm. Truth be told, I am more inclined to believe that Mr. Obama – whose entire tenure has been an exercise in group-think and governance by committee – is the dullest crayon in the White House box. Do you think for a moment that if he had achieved exemplary grades at Harvard or had penned a groundbreaking essay for the Harvard Review that the Progressive Left wouldn’t have showcased that behind the altar at the Church of Perpetual Obamaisms? No, it is likelier that he was a sub-par student whose falsely elevated self-esteem afforded him the opportunity to be “good at the mouth” and little else.

We all should have known this – or at least the voters on the Left side of the aisle should have known this – prior to his election in 2008, his only accomplishment being the failure of his community organizing efforts at the Altgeld Gardens in Chicago, still a cesspool of poverty, drug dealers, prostitutes and welfare queens to this day.

Of course, to have discerned Mr. Obama as wholly unqualified for the job would have required Liberal voters to actually think for themselves – before they voted, and to possess the integrity to understand and accept that race isn’t a qualification for office – at any level. To have realized the mistake of Obama – preemptively – would have required those on the pretentious side of the aisle to acquiesce to the notion that their ideological mindset just might not be as “fantabulous” as they think they it is.

Sadly, and to the detriment of liberty, personal freedom and representative government, we all know that the likelihood of a Liberal epiphany is next to nil. Liberals, led like clueless lemmings, will continue to fall prey to the emotionally marketed manipulation of their Progressive overlords; overlords who have co-opted their political party; self-centered and opportunistic overlords who have hoodwinked them into the chains of ideological slavery.
