How To Heal America’s Festering Wound

 I can’t imagine how anyone in America today can’t see what is going on, can’t see what is happening to their freedom. Sadly, too many people don’t want to see what is happening, but ignoring the problem won’t make it go away. Not only will the problem not go away, it will fester and get worse like a wound that doesn’t get washed, medicated, and bandaged.

The festering wound that too many people don’t want to see is the government, both political parties. This wound has been left by We the People to fester and get infected for far too long. It is time we began treating the wound. I have a plan laid out later in this article.

I just read about another government plan to “protect us”. Janet Napolitano is calling for a plan to control mass migration of “immigrants”.

The administration spins this plan as a national security measure, and uses the Presidential Policy Directive on National Preparedness for their justification. Napolitano and her enablers, in both parties, are being “humane”, thinking about those “poor Mexicans” who have it so tough in Mexico. Our government can’t take care of what they have now, can they? We have to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to survive now, yet the regime wants to add to the list? And in the name of “caring for those poor immigrants” they let American citizens do without, and threaten to make them do with less, all in the name of being “humane”.

This plan is another nail in the coffin of freedom yet I continually hear people dismiss these nails with, “it can’t happen here”, “it won’t happen here”, “I don’t think we really have much to worry about, the government cares about us”.  Anyone want to buy a bridge in NYC?

The festering wound I refer to is the tyranny being implemented now and planned for the future by the government, and the apathy of all too many citizens. The washing needed here is prayer; the disinfectant needed is knowledge of the real issues. The medication is letting elected officials know we are watching and we are knowledgeable. The wound dressing is voting almost all of those in Congress out of Congress. More on this later.

Having humanity and compassion as character traits is admirable. I may not sound “humane” or “compassionate” in some of my viewpoints, but I am actually more humane and compassionate than the liberals. I want everyone in this nation to prosper, to climb the economic ladder, not wallow in poverty and hopelessness. I desire to see a nation where anyone can succeed if they have the desire and the drive to succeed. I want to take care of those who truly can’t take care of themselves, physically or mentally, and I am totally in favor of helping those who just need a hand up. This isn’t what we are seeing today. We are seeing the systemic destruction of our nation, our lives, and our freedoms. We are seeing the government take more control of our society. We are seeing people subjugated because they feel “entitled” to the possessions of others and are being pandered to by both political parties. This isn‘t about fairness, it is about control.

Now back to my earlier medical reference. The “festering wound” is what has been done in the past, what is being done now, and what is “planned for” in this plan for mass movement of people, among other tyrannical moves by the federal government. They speak of “immigration” but is that their actual concern? Couldn’t that mass migration be any person or any group of people? What is to stop them from “migrating” non-Hispanic people to another area and turning the southwestern portion of the United States into another province of Mexico? Hitler started with Jews, then progressed to Gypsies, Homosexuals, and any non-Aryan person. Hitler murdered 11 million people in the name of “compassion”. The Israeli government, under appeasers they call “moderates”, have removed settlers from areas and turned those areas over to Muslims. The result seems to be that those areas are now missile launching pads, but what the heck, “fairness” was implemented.

Although there is denial from some politicians, Sections 1031 and 1032 of the National Defense Administration Act (SB 1867/HR 1540) seem to be aimed at American citizens, not aliens. We now have legislation that appears to allow the military to arrest any citizen, without just cause, without charges, without warrants, and hold them indefinitely inside or outside the United States.
Indefinitely means “until the war on terror is over”.  And when will that fine day occur? They are also actively planning an “internet kill switch” to give a China, North Korea, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, etc. type of government control of the internet. I wrote about this a little over a year ago when Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn) introduced legislation for this purpose, “for national security reasons”. Last month we had the test of the National Emergency Alert System that gave government agencies complete control of all radio and television broadcast signals. We now know that it is possible for the Goebbels Commission (FCC) to seize control of all broadcast signals at one time. Isn’t that encouraging to freedom loving people?

The FEMA camps that people have laughed at or denied are now being brought into a usable state. The “conspiracy theory” that I wrote about over a year ago is now fact. The government is looking to companies like Halliburton to staff these camps. Remember Halliburton in Iraq? The government has solicited bids for personnel to staff the camps. Have you seen pictures of these camps? If not, you should. They are eerily similar to the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. I suspect that these camps aren’t only for illegal immigrants. I could go on for days about what is being done by government, by both political parties, but if you don’t see the light now or still deny the facts then that would be wasted time and space.

Now, what to do about the festering wound. The first thing we need to do is wash the wound. We need to look at the damage and see what needs to be done. To see the damage clearly and to acknowledge the extent of that damage is the first step. We wash the wound with clear vision by asking God to open our eyes to truth, the truth of God and the truth of our situation. We need wisdom to properly treat the wound. We get the wisdom of how to treat the wound through prayer. Every religion I know of prays. What or who they pray to is not the issue here, so don’t get lost in dogma. I am a Christian so I pray to the God of Abraham, through Jesus Christ.

I pray for the vision of a clear heart and a clear mind to see the truth and to see the issues as they truly are. I pray that I will have the Wisdom of Solomon to work in the proper manner to solve the problems I see, the courage of David to actually deal with the problems, and the compassion and the practicality of Jesus in dealing with the problems. Jesus wasn’t all compassion, He had a practical side also. I pray for protection for my country, my family, my friends, and myself.

The next step is to take the vision and wisdom received through the prayers and treat the wound. We use the vision and wisdom to learn about what the government is doing in the name of these wonderful “utopian” plans to take care of everyone in the world. Study some recent history. Take a good look at the 20th Century. Look at where other nations have gone and how they got there. Use your vision and wisdom to find out exactly what is being done that you aren’t being told about or what has been done that you have ignored in the past.

We treat the wound by first washing and assessing damage, then disinfecting it. We disinfect the wound by learning what the Constitution says, what our founding fathers did, how they set this nation up. We disinfect the wound by learning what legislation is being passed, how the wording affects citizens, and what bureaucratic regulations are being created to implement said legislation. We don’t just listen to what politicians and bureaucrats say in sound bites, we look at what they are doing behind the talking points and rosy analogies, and look at what they are doing behind closed doors.

We disinfect the wound by keeping in contact with elected officials and let them know we are watching, what we expect of them, and what the results will be if they choose to ignore us. We use the antiseptic of our involvement to remove the infection that has been festering for much too long. Again wisdom comes into play as we need the wisdom to know how to go about said disinfection.

We can all disinfect at all levels of government, in various capacities. School board, City, and County elections have abysmal voter turnouts and we wonder why they don’t seem to care what we think. You can disinfect the government by keeping in contact with all levels of elected officials.

Let them know where you stand and that you will vote them out if they don’t represent you properly. Write, call, fax, or e-mail Congress members, and other elected officials at all levels, often. Let them know you are here and you vote.

Cleaning and disinfecting the wound doesn’t accomplish much if that is all we do. Next we must medicate and bandage the wound by standing up and volunteering to serve our communities. At the local level get involved by running for school board seats, city councils, county government, etc. Some can get more involved at the state level. Run for office if you can at any level of government. So far we still have government Of the People, By the People, and For the People. It is up to us to keep it that way.

Help heal the festering wound that is infecting America. Use prayer to gain the vision and the wisdom to know what the damage is, and the courage to do what is necessary to treat the wound. Be the medicine and dressing on the wound you just cleaned up and disinfected. Be a part of the healing of your nation, of the future of your children and grandchildren.

We can do this but it needs to be done as a team. The Medical-A Team is God, assisted by We the People. Just as doctors and nurses work together to heal bodily wounds and infections; We the People can work together, Under God, to heal our political wounds and infections.

First we look to God, we plead our case, and we ask for His forgiveness and mercy (2 Chronicles 7:14). Then we follow His wisdom, and act through that wisdom with courage to make the changes needed to survive as a free nation. This is the answer to our future, are you willing?

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

DHS Takes Action Against.. Exploding Turkeys

DHS Chief Janet Napolitano wants America to know they are on the job keeping everyone safe this holiday season. Watch the following video on how the geniuses at the Department of Homeland Security are going out of their way to protect (by spending taxpayer dollars on ridiculous common sense issues) people who apparently are too lazy to read the directions on every turkey fryer sold in America today.

Let’s try to figure out how these people set up this “demonstration on an exploding turkey” shall we?

1 – Make sure you have the fryer over 3/4 full of hot oil so it spills over the edge and catches fire. Check.

2 – Make sure the turkey is completely frozen beforehand, as we all have had the experience of seeing what happens when frozen foods meet hot oil, such as french fries, chicken wings, fish etc. Ka-Whoosh! Big fire!

3 – Let’s make sure we have a fireman in a fire-suit covered from head to toe, with an oxygen mask, boots, gloves, the whole nine yards to show the public how responsible our government is in protecting their actor’s well-being. This also makes for very dramatic theater to get the dummies attention, because they must be dummies refusing to read the instructions and tossing frozen turkeys into a 375 degree fryer loaded with hot oil.

4 – This excellent usage of taxpayer dollars will allow Napolitano and company at the DHS to demand a few billion more tax dollars for next year’s big government expansion of turkey fryer police and federal regulators protecting America from exploding turkeys,and dummies houses being burned down by ignorant morons too stupid or lazy to read the instructions that come with every turkey fryer sold in the U.S.A.

Has America become such a dumbed-down nanny-state that we now need Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security teaching us how to deep fry a turkey on Thanksgiving? Maybe this all came about because they do not have enough work to do today, seeing as to how they just declared that ICE and Border agents will no longer be permitted to search for and detain for deportation, illegal immigrants in America, therefore freeing them up to make commercials about the dangers of exploding turkeys? This is what you get when a government goes wild, asking for 250,000 more employees, and then makes up rules that prevents them from doing the jobs they were hired to do in the first place! Here is a hat tip for Ms. Napolitano, free of charge: Either do your job and detain and deport illegal immigrants who are breaking the law when entering America, or get out of our government! Clear enough?

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

Another Documented, Disgusting Failure by DHS to Protest U.S. Citizens

Meet Francisco Guillermo Morales Esquer, 36, who was arrested in Arizona on Oct. 13th, ( less than 3 weeks ago) in one of three major busts that state and federal officials credited with dismantling a far-reaching drug smuggling ring, which is believed to be tied to the Sinaloa drug cartel – one of Mexico’s ( and now, thanks to the DHS, America’s) most powerful criminal gangster-groups. (AP/Pinal County Sheriffs dept photo)

On Monday, officials held a news conference announcing the supposed breakup of a Mexican drug cartel smuggling ring in Phoenix, Az. in which they proudly displayed hundreds of pounds of drugs and numerous guns they had seized during the Oct 13th bust. A mere five hours later, law enforcement officials clocked a car going 50 mph in a 15 mph school zone about 50 miles south of Phoenix, and a high-speed chase ensued when the car’s driver refused to pull over at the request of police. After reaching speeds of over 100 mph, and an attempt by the driver to run over a police officer trying to lay down stop sticks to end the chase, the driver crashed the car and jumped into a canal, where they captured him. The driver of the car was none other than the above-mentioned Mr. Morales, whom was arrested in the major drug smuggling bust just two weeks prior. How Mr. Morales ended up back on the streets of America just two weeks after being arrested in a major drug cartel bust is a very real example of the DHS’ failure to do their job and protect the citizens of America.

Mr. Morales had been arrested in a home tied to the drug cartel in the Oct. 13th bust in which numerous guns were found, yet prosecutors somehow claim they didn’t have enough evidence to convict him at the time, so they released him to the border patrol. It is the responsibility of ICE and DHS to prosecute him for felony reentry into the U.S. as Mr. Morales had already been deported at least once before. DHS then refused to prosecute him and turned him loose, where he was caught again in the high-speed police pursuit where Mr. Morales also tried to kill a police officer by running him over.

Released by DHS, illegal immigrant caught in U.S. with carload of drugs two weeks later.

 

The Department of Homeland Security‘s refusal to prosecute Morales for felony illegal reentry into the U.S put police officer’s and citizen’s lives in danger by letting him back on the streets. And this ludicrous example of the DHS’ criminality in refusing to enforce our laws does not end there. Just two weeks after DHS let this criminal back on the streets, he is caught running from the police… in a car loaded with 80 pounds of heroin and another 8 pounds of methamphetamine! The number of lives that would be ruined by the amount of drugs that DHS allowed [Mr. Morales] back onto the streets to peddle represents a very serious problem, if not an outright act of treason against American citizens.

One of the officers on the front line of this battle, Pinal County, Az, Sheriff Paul Babeu held a news conference in which he explained just what is going on down there. “Here we strike a body blow on the Sinaloa cartel, (and) they’re still operating in a robust fashion,” he said. “They can regenerate immediately.” He went on to add that there are no consequences for their illegal criminal actions. Thanks to DHS, people like Morales just keep on being released to further endanger American’s lives and well-being through their refusal to prosecute these criminals, as evidenced by this latest episode of the Obama administration’s appointed DHS chief, Janet Napolitano’s failure and refusal to uphold and enforce the law.Meanwhile, Napolitano continues to deny law enforcement officials the ability to identify and arrest illegal immigrants across America, as evidenced in the DHS/ DOJ/Obama mandated lawsuits against Arizona, Alabama and now South Carolina‘s state laws designed to protect their citizens from the likes of career criminals and illegal immigrant/invader Mr. Morales and the Sinaloa drug cartel.

While DHS, ICE and assorted law enforcement officials were quick to hold major press conferences to announce the recent arrest of 76 suspected dope smugglers, the seizure of 61,000 pounds of pot, 160 pounds of heroin, 210 pounds of cocaine, $760,000 dollars in cash and 108 weapons including assault rifles and shotguns in the dismantling of this drug ring that brought some $33 million worth of drugs a month into the western desert states for nationwide distribution, we also see that they let many of these criminals go free to regenerate the drug smuggling operation in a short two weeks. This is what happens in a country where the President is seen to be acting like a Socialistic dictator in bypassing Congress to enact laws by executive fiat, as Obama has done concerning illegal immigration laws recently. This problem is being magnified tenfold by the politically correct cowards of the U.S. Congress, whom refuse to use their duly enacted powers to bring the president to heel according to Constitutional law. How many American’s lives and families have to be destroyed by these Mexican drug cartels and the thousands of pounds of drugs they are distributing throughout America, before our elected officials will take a stand and demand that those breaking the law through the executive fiat-mandated DHS policies be thrown out of our government and brought up on charges?

Will the Obama-appointed DHS Chief, Janet Napolitano call a national press conference to announce how her new department rules mandated that ICE officials let Mr. Morales back on the streets to continue his drug-running operation in the U.S.? Don’t hold your breath. All we hear out of the DHS nowadays, is how our Southern border is more secure today than ever before.  What a joke.
2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

Dept. of Homeland Security Sec Admits Not Enforcing Immigration Laws

While I’m not quite sure what the heck “technically unlawfully” means, I am sure that failing to enforce the immigration laws is a dereliction of duty. Sessions reads a letter from border officers where they site her failure and their “vote of no confidence” in Janet Napolitano’s ability to enforce the nation’s laws.

This administration created a crisis by not allowing the enforcement of border laws. Then admits they can’t deport all the ones getting through. Somehow – it’s not their fault?

TSA fires 28 Honolulu Bag Screeners after "Probe"

Honolulu International Airport

Maui-wowie, man! That’s awesome! The Transportation Security Administration just fired twenty-eight bag screeners at Honolulu International Airport after an extensive criminal probe. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever approved of reading “TSA” and “probe” in the same sentence…oh, wait. It seems they were only screening for cash and jewels. You mean me and my two young grandkids removed our shoes for nothing? We could have put the C4 in the bags? They fired twenty-eight bag screeners? Holy North Shore Batman! They should all be lei-ed off! Every last thieving one of them! Don’t forget the gropers, either. “Do you have any bombs, explosives, plutonium, or currently glowing nuclear devices or materials to declare? Next!” Twenty-eight TSA workers fired? That’s a good start. But if we fire twenty-eight an hour we can get rid of most of them quite quickly! I’m sure they could quickly hook up (no pun intended) with the porn or massage industries. It’s not like they don’t have experience or sumtin’. And there are seven-hundred and fifty TSA employees wandering around at just one airport? Does anyone else see that as a problem? I also like the idea of getting rid of TSA completely and just giving everyone a weapon. The first guy to pull out a weapon is the terrorist; the second guy… is everyone else. Good luck, first guy. You know why Obama flies Air Force 1? Because the TSA doesn’t let terrorists fly commercial.

The TSA saga continues. How ironic! TSA gets probed. Over 10 years, $1B+ spent, and what to show for it? Thousands of women groped, but not a single terrorist identified! Has the captain ever asked you to fasten your suicide belts? Fly Jihad Airways! But never fear, at least they hand out free 9/11 coloring books. Yay, union labor! To be fair, if they screened all of the bags they wouldn’t have had time to watch the strip searches. Why would they screen for explosives when the x-ray porno movies are being shown in the break room? Nobody likes working the X-Ray machine. They all want to be working at the porno scanner or groping your children’s junk. Wasn’t it Shakespeare who first said “To screen or not to screen? That is the question.” Okay, I’m thinking bomb. To screen is the answer. Now, what was the question again? As an aside, if we were talking about Michelle Obama that quote would be “To eat or not to eat. Fat is the question.”

TSA has taken the necessary steps to ensure every bag has been screened properly at HNL since the agency identified the issue. TSA routinely tests security operations to ensure that proper protocols are being followed, and investigates any indication of misconduct. TSA also utilizes a number of checks to ensure bags are being screened properly including the use of CCTV, random inspections, covert tests, as well as peer and management oversight.

TSA management-level staff and National Deployment Force officers have been temporarily assigned to HNL to augment the current staff and continue to ensure that a high level of security operations continues. An effort will commence to hire local permanent replacements in the coming weeks.

I tried to get on with the TSA a few years ago but I got rejected. I had too high of an IQ for them. If measured by their overall common sense, competence, professionalism and intelligence, TSA people are right up there with Wal-mart greeters. In fact, I think the greeters actually have the edge. Seriously, the TSA is made up of formerly unemployed Muppets. We need the Mossad to run the organization. That way you would have a legitimate reason to visit Israel and see the pyramids! If they fire all of the TSA employees then all they will have to pay them is welfare and food stamps—of which they already all get anyway; but they would save a lot of money not having to pay them to sit around all day in an airport while smoking crack in the restrooms. Speaking of rest rooms, isn’t it true that TSA employees have particularly wide stances and tap their feet while… you know.

Now, there is no way to blame Bush for this fiasco. It’s all on Barack Hussein Obama. So let’s take a small interlude from the TSA and tell a few Captain Kickass jokes in honor of Barry and The First Lardass:

  • You know, if you took Obama and gave him a higher IQ and some experience, you would have Jimmy Carter.
  • What do Obama and a beer bottle have in common? They’re both empty from the neck up.
  • What do you tell an Obama with two black eyes? Nothing. He’s already been told twice.
  • What do you get when you offer Obama a penny for his thoughts? Change.
  • What do you call a man with no arms and no legs sitting on your front porch? Obama.
  • What did the left nut say to the right nut? Obama.
  • I see colleges are offering a new course. Yeah, it’s called Food Stamps 101…living in an Obama economy.
  • I heard Obama got a brain transplant and the brain rejected him.
  • Obama’s so clumsy he got tangled up in a cordless phone.
  • Barry doing stand-up comedy: “The Second Amendment? Of course I support Michelle’s right to bare arms.” Pa-dum-dum
  • Obama does more stand-up: “Come on, I won’t cut off your granny’s health care, just her life support.” Pa-dum-dum
  • “Can’t I just get a straight answer?” – Barney Frank (Now how did THAT get in this column about the TSA? Oh, I know. It’s because Frank is in touch with HIS feelings. Kinda’ like the TSA, which is in touch with OUR feelings.)

Alright, let’s leave the TSA for a moment and further dissect Barney Frank. Last night I was on Twitter and asked my Tweeple to engage in a guessing game. The question was “What is Barney Frank’s favorite insect?” Here are some of the hilariously creative answers I received:

  • Note to self: Not the Cock Goblin. — FunkynFortunate
  • I thought it was the Trouser Worm. —rightwingertoo
  • Ladybug? —madreview
  • Tick? —tacsneakyfast
  • Dungbeetle? — LauraWalkerKC
  • Walking Stick — FAMDOC7
  • White Legged Didlopod —tacsneakyfast
  • A Drag(on) Fly — lafayette41
  • Locust? — TheJosiahQ

The correct answer, you might already have guessed, is the cockroach. But that is enough of our pleasant little diversion concerning the esteemed gentleman from Massachusetts. Speaking of cockroaches, don’t you just get the heebie-jeebies every time you look at a picture of Janet Napolitano? See, I knew I could do it! I managed to get us right back to the TSA! Now, about that little ol’ TSA probe and all? (notice the lack of a verb there? Don’t worry, folks. I’m a professional—just don’t try it at home.) Relax. No Democrat employees were injured during that exercise. Which is surprising considering that Bush spent a lot of money killing terrorists and Obama has spent a lot of money killing jobs.

In conclusion let me just say that my new slogan is “Anthony Weiner in ’12. Cuz One Dick wasn’t enough!”

TSA: Same Stimulus—Different Weiner.

Progressive U.S. Senate Piles on the Debt with 2012 FEMA Bill.

Pretty much everyone in the country wants to fund FEMA ( Federal Emergency Management Agency) to ensure the money is there to help the areas of America that need to recover from the numerous natural disasters of late. Hurricanes, tornadoes, and the subsequent flooding from them have left many towns ravaged and they are in need of federal dollars to help rebuild and repair. Those facts are non-debatable. What is debatable is how this help is to be paid for during the current recession, and that discussion is getting flat out ugly as partisan politics took center stage this week in the U.S Senate. Progressives, led by fake Democrat Harry Reid simply want to pile another $7 billion dollars onto the federal debt chart, while some Republicans have called for responsible cutting in spending to pay for the FEMA funding bill, instead of just borrowing more money from China and other countries. This reminds me of seeing ex-Speaker, Liberal Nancy Pelosi bragging on national TV about the Democrat’s supposed “Pay-Go” policy where they promised to pay as you go when spending the taxpayer’s dollars.

 

If they have been paying as they were going for the past 5 years of what amounts to Liberal rule in Congress since 2007, then explain to me just how has our national debt skyrocketed by some $7 trillion dollars since then? In an article from 2010, which does not include the massive debt of 2011 under Obama and the Liberals, we see this headline:
Debt Has Increased $5 Trillion Since Speaker Pelosi Vowed, ‘No New Deficit Spending’  To quote the San Fran Nanny Queen:

“After years of historic deficits, this 110th Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: Pay as you go, no new deficit spending,” Pelosi said in her speech from the speaker’s podium. “Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations, not burden them with mountains of debt.”

We are constantly barraged with fake Democrats spewing false rhetoric such as above, while in fact being proven to have done just the opposite. Are Americans ignorant enough to actually believe this propaganda? Apparently so, as I witnessed a recent poll that basically said some 59% of Americans now believe that our massive debt explosion was the result of Republican spending. Since Barack Obama has been running our country for almost 3 years now, with fake Democrats given complete control of Congress in the 2006 elections, and while Harry Reid still controls the U.S. Senate today, how can anyone be naive enough to think it’s the Republicans fault for all that debt? As they say in the Liberal propagandists handbook, tell a lie enough times and some people will believe it as the truth. So how is Nancy Pelosi’s lie about Pay-GO working out today the Democratically controlled U.S. Senate? While many Republicans introduced legislation to actually use the Democrat’s vaunted “Pay-Go” to find ways to pay for the FEMA funding bill, Liberal Harry Reid and some progressive RINO-Republicans voted to just put the FEMA bill on the national debt card once again! This Senate bill appears to be some kind of ploy to force the U.S. House of Representatives to go along with the progressive debt-spending of the U.S. Senate. Again, must I remind people that under the U.S Constitution, all spending bills must originate in the House? They are using this fake FEMA bill to try to bully the U.S. House of Representatives, period.  In an article from FoxNews.com, we see Senator Tom Coburn calling out the progressive hypocrites from both parties, on this proposed new debt spending for FEMA:

With the nation running a $14.7 trillion debt, Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma led the charge to fully pay for the $6.9 billion Senate bill, a fairly unprecedented move.
“We’re almost schizophrenic. We say we need to cut spending, but we say we don’t want to find $7 billion to pay for it. We just want to borrow it,” Coburn accused. And though he has, himself, voted in the past for disaster funding with no offsets, the senator said Thursday, “We’re in a new day. We’re in a new world. (emphasis mine)

FoxNews themselves are also seen right there pushing the progressive debt-spending agenda in the last sentence of that quote. Although Coburn has voted for spending without off-sets before, Fox seems to ignore the mandate of the 2010 elections where the people said they are very concerned about our massive debt-burden and voted against the progressive agenda of more debt-spending, especially during the current stagnant economy. FEMA spending bills during times of vibrant economies and federal revenue increases has absolutely nothing to do with the urgency to get spending under control of today. Has Fox forgotten that our credit rating has been downgraded under the weight on Obama’s progressive spending for the first time in history this year already? Shame on you Fox, that is not fair and balanced reporting there.

Further proof that this debt-laden FEMA Senate bill is a propaganda effort with political motivation at it’s roots is also supplied in the above linked FoxNews article, where Obama-puppet, DHS Chief, Janet Napolitano deemed it necessary to weigh in on the Democrat’s attempt at politicizing the Senate FEMA bill:

At an Aspen Institute event in Washington today, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, in a somewhat rare, impassioned tone, underscored the urgency of the situation.
“The fight we’re in now is to get money for the disaster relief fund. We do not have enough money, given the number of disasters we’ve had this year, to finish the fiscal year, and to do all the things we have to do,” the secretary strongly warned.

We have DHS-ATF employees selling guns to drug cartels, southern border states screaming for help to protect their citizens from the criminal illegal immigrant invasion from Mexico, and this clown deems herself an authority over Congressional legislation and tries to tell them what they should or shouldn’t do? This is just further proof that the Obama administration is trying to manipulate our Congress through media propaganda once again. Need I remind Ms. Napolitano that she is an appointee of Barack Obama, and was not elected by we the people here?  She needs to keep that attempt at propagandizing Congressional leglislation to herself, and stay out of our Congress’ business. With her current ignoring of Federal Immigration laws to the detriment of our society, Ms Napolitano belongs in prison, not on national TV lecturing the American people on what is right or wrong for this country!

Senator Rand Paul tried to cut back on U.S. foreign aid spending as a way to pay for the Senate FEMA funding bill, but Harry Reid was joined by several progressive Republicans to deny that common-sense approach to actually “Pay as you go” as the Democrats like to say. “We cannot send welfare to other countries that we don’t have,” Paul pleaded, noting that bridges need to be rebuilt in his own home state before money goes to build them in other countries. Harry Reid is caught red-handed politicizing this Fema bill proposal, as I stated earlier:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., stripped the 2012 funding from a larger annual spending bill to move it in a standalone measure, an unusual move that Republicans say was designed to score political points

Senator John Cornyn also brings up some valid points during this heated debate on the Senate political-football of the Fema debt-spending proposal, instead of actually paying for the 7 billion in spending in the bill:

“Obviously the disaster funding is important. I support funding FEMA. What’s frustrating, though, is this is gamesmanship on the part of Senator Reid,” accused Sen. John Cornyn, R-Tex, whose own state has been ravaged by wildfires. “He knows, and we all know, that in the Continuing Resolution that will pass the House next week that there are appropriations for disaster funding that do not increase the deficit

Cornyn also said that next year the FEMA spending bill should go through the actual regular appropriations process. Does he mean that next year Congress will actually produce a budget for the first time in 3 years there? I,ll believe that when I see it.

Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) unintentionally let the truth come out when he said:
“I’m for paying for it if we can find a way to pay for it,” Blunt told Fox, “But if you want to take any line in the upcoming budget, since it’s going to require borrowing money, and say ‘none of it’s paid for’ in any line, because we don’t get to a balanced budget under anybody’s current plan in the next decade – I don’t think that’s much of an argument.” (emphasis mine)

This bill is said to be to fund FEMA for next year. Sen. Blunt states that it will require borrowing money to pay for it. NEXT YEAR. Our country is now so broke that we can not even find a way to pay for $7 billion in FEMA funding for next year. In looking at the total summary of this 2012 FEMA funding bill outlined here, and seeing the fact that progressives from both parties, led by the nose by Barack Obama and Harry Reid are saying that this bill will be put onto the already debt-laden backs of the working class and their children through more debt-spending should be quite informative, even to the most naive of citizens. Then again, we have some 59% of this country that want to put this nasty debt-spending responsibility onto the shoulders of the conservatives in our Congress. The facts simply do not line up with that often-stated ignorance there. Vote grassroots conservative in 2012 and we just might have a chance to pull out of this fiscal nightmare.

Obama put the BS in joBS

Okay, so you’ve all heard Irene is heading straight at Mister O’Wonderful’s vacation hideout on Martha’s Vineyard. Now, assuming he doesn’t cut-n-run (doubtful) we will see the spectacle of Irene transforming Mister O’Wonderful into Ilean out on the fifth hole. This tasty sight would dispel the notion that Mister O’Wonderful is a centrist. It would be blatantly clear to even the socialist Captain Obvious Bernie Sanders that O’Wonderful leans to the left. Oh, pardon me. He doesn’t lean. Ilean.

But Irene is nothing more than a minor bother to the Lobster Twins despite the predicted giant sucking sounds for Massachusetts this weekend. The real hurricane is gaining strength out in flyover country and the computer models are predicting a direct hit on November 2, 2012. Hurricane forecasters are pointing out that those hurricanes in the Northern Hemisphere spin counterclockwise. For those of you in Queens that means to the right! Don’t get confused, folks— its circular reasoning. We don’t need a weatherman to tell us which way the wind blows… but enough about Bill Ayers.

For all you liberals still in denial, I suggest you forget your troubles for a while and go see a movie. Uh, never mind, chances are that you would just see Patton slap Obama this time around. Hey, isn’t revisionist history wonderful! Anyway, back to November 2nd next year. Obama better hope that he doesn’t have an election lasting more than four hours. Why, you ask? This is why, America …

(__!__) <—– Before Obama, (__O__) <—– After Obama.

Obama has things so fouled up now the Kenyans are saying he was born in the United States. Seriously, my commie friends—I’m just trying to cheer you up. Like you, I’m waiting with baited breath (I am a penguin, after all) to hear that O’Lobster has his claws completely around this jobs thing. But no matter what spews forth from O’Lobster’s pie-hole next month… Never fear! Barry’s got a plan to run the whole economy on rainbow-colored unicorn farts.

Mister O'Wonderful

Mister O’Wonderful

Don’t laugh, I’m serious. Barry and the Banking Queen, Barney Frank, have been squirreled away for weeks now with a laser-like focus on jobs. They’re being proactive. They’re thinking strategically. They’re thinking outside the bun! The danger, of course, is that given his track record, Barney Frank will be tempted to lead from behind. Poor Barney Frank, he’s in over his head. Oh, in the interest of full disclosure I must reveal that this opinion piece has been paid for by the Committee to Erect Anthony Weiner. Sheesh, I heard it through the grapevine that Barney Frank has a staff infection. (I really kill me sometimes!) Sorry, I got off topic there for a bit. Back to more serious news. Anthony Weiner: Wasn’t he the subject of what we were talking about somewhere in the middle of this run-on paragraph? Yes, he was! And the latest news about Weiner is that he is made from one-hundred percent pulled pork! What’s the point? Oh yeah, paragraphs are supposed to have a topic sentence and everything else in the paragraph is supposed to support that topic sentence, right? Well, there’s not much I can do about the sentences I’ve already penned but I’ll get back on topic with the concluding sentence in this grammatical nightmare (Sorry about the dangling participle there, Weiner). Here goes nothing. Barack Obama has the brain of a turkey and I’ll bet the turkey was glad to be rid of it.

The Democrats 2012 campaign strategy: If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with Barack. It has been quite enlightening for those of us who are conservatives to learn about ATM economics. What an education! Oh, the soaring rhetoric that spills from the lips of the Chicago Messiah whenever he speaks about those evil ATMs. But let us cut to the chase about Automatic Teller Machines. Obama’s real problem is that the ATM does not give out money based on a worker’s need and thus is an instrument of oppression. It isn’t like Obama can’t solve this ATM tragedy if he really wants to. Laws that liberals don’t like aren’t really laws, they’re just worded wrong. So Obama can just ignore banking laws in the same manner he ignores court decisions about the unconstitutionality of ObamaCare. He can simply do whatever he wants while we, the great masses of the unwashed, just keep wasting away again down in Obamaville. With fiends like Obama who needs an enema?

Sorry for this disjointed piece of prose. But, you know, you have to be real and these thoughts just keep tumbling out of my brain. It’s a matter of medical health for me. You see, if I don’t write these things down as they spill out of my cranium I end up feeling repressed. And you don’t want a repressed penguin on the loose, do you? So, here is the disjointed thought for this paragraph. The thought I am about to express had its origin in the second paragraph when I brought up the subject of Massachusetts. It sort of wiggled its way out of my frontal lobe and morphed into what you are about to read. Okay, here it is, brain dump time… Gee, someone cheated on a Kennedy…isn’t it usually the other way around? (Sorry, Arnold)

That last paragraph really moved me. Speaking of earthquakes, I hope future quakes create more land. Maybe, just maybe, a new “America” will form and we can have New New York!

Let us conclude with Obama’s job performance, or lack thereof, which is the underlying cause of the hurricane heading straight for a polling booth near you. You need a job and Barry’s just been busy winning the ‘Arab Spring’, one lobster at a time. You want secure borders but are left wondering if man evolved from apes then how do you explain Janet Napolitano? China has a one child policy and we have a one Biden policy. We’re told to watch what we eat while The First Lardass of the United States is swigging premium vodka, devouring lobster, and getting luxurious massages all on our dime. And don’t even get me started on her personal jet for the trip to Martha’s Vineyard. But (butt?) I will excuse that indiscretion this one time because I’m sure the Air Force has weight load limitations on those puny 747s they call Air Force One.

Between campaign appearances, there is no Barack Obama. Barack Obama, the man of a thousand excuses. So, Mister O’Wonderful, is it true that the people who live there on the island can get jobs as instructors at the Kennedy Community Diving and Swim Center in Chappaquiddick?

Hey, Barry! Copernicus called. He said you’re not the center of the universe!

Everybody, get your Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle loaded and hunker down.

And lest you think it is just conservatives that are sick of Barry, today’s news is that Richard Trumpka of AFL-CIO fame is threatening to withdraw union funding from the Democrats. See what happens when you do not vet your candidate, Kool-Aid drinker? Obama is going to plead with Trumpka, arguing that he inherited a mess. But the fact is that he begged for the job knowing that fact. Is he insane? Yes.

But, enough about Barry; next time we will discuss the other half of the Lobster Twins. We’ll all learn why Michelle is a perfect example of taxidermy gone wrong. Stuff it, Barry. Stuff it, Michelle. Stuff it, Joe Biden. Stuff it, Debbie Downer. And, “You first,” Maxine Waters.

Perhaps, now that the Libya conflict is winding down Barry will decide to attack Norway. Forget it, Barry. We can’t afjoird it!

Remember, America, you can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out.

Holding Holder to The Truth

Operation Gunrunner has been in the news a fair amount of late. Mostly the deal was this:

“The undercover operation carried out by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives which intentionally allowed large numbers of firearms to be bought in this country by so-called ‘straw purchasers,’ and then sent across the border to Mexico’s drug cartels, known as ‘Operation Gunrunner” as well as “Fast and Furious” is starting to look very much like the Iran/Contra scandal of the 1980’s.

The parallels are astounding.”(1)

(1) Will “Operation Gunrunner” become Obama’s Iran/Contra scandal? – National drug cartel | Examiner.com http://www.examiner.com/drug-cartel-in-national/will-operation-gunrunner-become-obama-s-iran-contra-scandal#ixzz1Rcpu4Mid

This same article source goes on to say this:

“[Recently, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) questioned Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on her knowledge of the program.

Though there was apparently at least one U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent in the Phoenix area, working with the ATF in the operation, Napolitano denied any involvement or knowledge of the operation.]”

Janitor Napolitano…can you spell P-E-R-J-U-R-Y? And also this:

“[Obama said: “Well, first of all I did not authorize it. Eric Holder, the Attorney General, did not authorize it. He’s been very clear that our policy is to catch gun runners and put them into jail. So what he’s done is he’s assigned an I.G., an inspector general, to investigate what exactly happened.”]”

One wonders if he’ll suffer the same fate as Gerald Walpin did as IG when he spoke the truth!

You may find this VERY CURIOUS after reading this excerpt:

“[I would like to thank the Mexican and U.S. experts who have worked so hard on this issue.  On our side, Secretary Napolitano and I are committed to putting the resources in place to increase our attack on arms trafficking into Mexico. 

 Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels.  My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion.  DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail.]”(2)*

Restore freedom and reduce deficit: Defund TSA

The story of a 95-year-old woman’s TSA search is just another example of the agency’s abuse of power and continued attack on our fourth amendment right. (For details on the story, check here.)

If you’re not familiar with YouCut, it’s a site put up by Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Citizens vote in the poll on proposed spending cuts, and can also leave suggestions for proposed cuts.

Here’s my suggestion, in an email sent to Rep. Cantor:

* * *

Greetings Rep. Cantor,

Thank you for the opportunity to discuss and suggest cuts to our overgrown governmental spending problem. You Cut is a fantastic idea.

I have an idea that addresses two concerns at once…

The first concern is, of course, the monumental spending spree and overgrowth of our federal government at the taxpayer’s expense. The second is the growing over-reach and arrogance of the TSA, and its role in violating our rights guaranteed by the fourth amendment.

I’m outraged and disgusted at the increasing number of horror stories about this governmental agency. A 95-year old lady with leukemia forced to endure a humiliating search and removal of her adult undergarment (soiled) before she could fly to her medical treatment? Honestly? Children being strip searched like violent prison inmates?

When people get upset about overly aggressive use of power, like the lady’s daughter who started crying, they’re searched for ‘acting unusual’. Are these agents hired from some kind of emotionally-bankrupt staffing agency? What caring person wouldn’t be upset over their sick, elderly mother being humiliated in such a way? The last I recall, it wasn’t little old ladies flying planes into buildings or bombing the USS Cole or chanting ‘death to America.’

Is this the administration’s way of convincing Americans to shut up and accept the physical intrusion on their person? Is this what our founders – or any reasonable, rational human being – considers ‘freedom’? Is this the liberty that so many fought and died for, that immigrants sacrificed their homelands to find, that we hold in trust for our children?

No, sir, it is not. This is an egregious misuse of governmental power that goes against reasonable search of persons.

And now there are hints and announcements that the TSA wants to stretch from airports to every other method of travel and movement to perform these searches in the name of safety.

If Homeland Security’s goal is to make us feel safe from terrorists, they’ve accomplished this:  I feel much less afraid of Al Qaeda than I do of Janet Napolitano’s unchecked power trip. When did we become the USSA? This is wrong, Mr. Cantor. I know it, you know it, and I’d guess even Napolitano knows it.

I’m not sure how much of our tax dollars is used to fund the TSA, but I’d like to suggest that department’s funding to be cut, either completely or at least in a significant amount, to help keep this rogue agency from systematically harassing the American citizen. We should not be funding the demise of our own freedom.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Respectfully yours…

S.C. Governor Nikki Haley Battles DHS over E-Verify

%CODE%
Nikki HaleyAs we see in the above video, courtesy of FoxNews.com, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has sent DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano a letter demanding that the state’s employers have access to the federal E-Verify system so they may comply with the law that requires them to check the legal status of perspective employees before hiring them. So far, Ms. Napolitano refuses to reply to that letter and numerous phone calls to explain why DHS is refusing South Carolina employers access to the E-Verify system so they may comply with the law regrading the hiring of illegal aliens in South Carolina. What is very troubling here is the fact that the Obama administration, and Janet Napolitano to be specific, are constantly bragging about their crackdown on any employers caught hiring illegals, yet here we see them denying South Carolina employers access to E-Verify. For those of you who may not fully understand what the E-Verify system is, you may read up on it here.

It is against federal, and now South Carolina State law to hire illegal aliens in America, so why is the Obama administration blocking access to E-verify? Employers caught hiring illegals have been fined huge amounts of money by the federal government in their supposed crackdown on the hiring of illegals, yet they are now denying South Carolina the ability to verify that perspective employees are legally eligible to work in America before hiring them! Just who does Janet Napolitano think she is here in refusing to answer Gov. Haley’s letter? The taxpayers of this country paid huge amounts of money to create the E-Verify system in 1997, and now we can not use it? Where is Congress on this issue? How about S. C. Senator Jim DeMint calling for an investigation and/or the removal of Janet Napolitano from DHS, since she is blocking the the use of E-Verify, therefore in violation of federal laws that prohibit the hiring of illegals in America? How about House Speaker John Boehner growing a spine and demanding that DHS be investigated here? This is supposedly what we pay you people for up there in D.C., to protect the citizens of this country from exactly this kind of abuse of public office, yet not one of you is doing anything about it!

This kind of blatant example of government abuse against the people of America is the reason the people no longer have faith in the federal government. The President of the United States and the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security are in direct violation of federal law and the people of this country had better wake up to facts like these explained right here. Congress must call for the removal of Janet Napolitano immediately, and the people must be heard in the 2012 presidential elections in the form of removing Barack Hussein Obama from their White House!

Illegals Continue to Flood America, Small Percentage Being Deported.

In a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, The Justice Departments Chief of The Executive Office for Immigration Review, ( EOIR ) Mr. Juan Osuna outlined the problems of the failures of the United States Department of Homeland Security to prevent the recent floods of illegal immigrants bombarding America today. Since DHS head propagandist, Janet Napolitano says the borders are more secure than ever before today, maybe she should have been made to attend this hearing and explain what was discovered there.  Among the more scathing proof of DHS’ failure and total incompetence is the fact that Mr. Osuna stated that his department now has a current backlog of over 270,000 immigration cases as of end of March of this year, and the projected backlog of cases for 2011 surpassing the 400,00 mark !

 

These facts show us that the border is in fact, not even remotely secure, as there are hundreds of thousands of illegals still flooding the United States every year. When Obama talks about immigration reform, it needs to start with securing the southern borders as simple common sense dictates here. This immigration hearing is detailed here, at  The Center for Immigration Studies website . In in we see the following truths about why Illegals are overrunning America today:

Julie Myers Wood, former Assistant Secretary for ICE, testified that in fiscal year 2010 immigration judges completed an average of 1,300 proceedings per judge, many more than other administrative law judges in other fields and with far fewer law clerk resources to assist them. While Mrs. Wood appeared open to the idea of additional hires and also proposed additional means for internal efficiencies, she explained that internal efficiencies are “insufficient to fully address the existing backlog and expected influx of cases and ensure that the court system operates with some efficiency.” She explained that one goal should be “to reduce the number of cases that must come before immigration courts for full hearings.” One way to achieve this, she explained, is through an expansion of expedited removal, something discussed in an earlier blog. The goal should be to reduce not only inefficiencyin the immigration courts, but also to reduce demand. (emphasis mine)

As the former ICE official explained:

By statute, expedited removal may be utilized for individuals that have been in the country for up to two years. However, the executive branch has not utilized the full statutory authority provided for expedited removal, but instead applied certain arbitrary limitations, including the most recent requirement that the alien be apprehended no more than 100 miles from the border and has spent less than 14 days in the country. There is no reason that the government could not take steps to administratively expand the current use of expedited removal, by, for example, focusing on certain known smuggling routes beyond 100 miles or slightly extending the current time period for eligibility (30 days vs. 14 days, for example). Another alternative would be to apply extended time and range limits for the use of expedited removal for immigrants who are convicted of a crime by state or local law enforcement.

We see that the problem lies within the Justice Department itself, along with Obama’s executive branch, who are applying very radical limitations on the deportation statute. The only way to speed up deportation, according to the Obama puppets blatantly ignoring the rule of law, is for when they are caught near the border and within 14 days of entering the country illegally. That means that all the criminals and other illegal aliens that have snuck into the country to avoid legal immigration laws that have been here undetected for years, are being given hearings and appeals to the point of collapsing the deportation system. This is a page right out of Obama-Hero, Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals handbook on how to collapse our government to effect radical change: AKA Socialism and chaos.

From the same website mentioned above, we see just who actually started this blatant act of treason against American Rule of law, and decided to change how we deport illegals when they were in power:

As written into law, expedited removal applies to illegal aliens apprehended anywhere in the United States, provided the alien has not been continuously physically present in the country for longer than two years. Both the Clinton and G.W. Bush administrations decided to limit the program; Clinton allowed for expedited removal only at a few ports of entry while Bush decided not to use the removal process for Mexican or Canadian aliens. Implementing the program to the full extent of the law could greatly reduce the burden on immigration courts. (emphasis mine)

When we look at the staggering total backlog of over 400,00 illegal alien deportation cases projected for this year alone, we can see that the Obama administration is following along right in G.W.Bush’s footsteps in not deporting illegal aliens. This is truly one time where Bush needs to be blamed for his part in causing the current illegal immigration crisis in America today !  This also leads us to understand why the informed voters and political strategists of America today call G. W. Bush a progressive. Progressives make their living subverting the Rule of law in any way they can to effect radical change. They have taken the bad illegal immigration situation created by Bill Clinton and G.W. Bush, and turned it into a chaotic disaster that is crushing many State budgets and causing a huge division within certain groups of Americans today. Divide and conquer comes to mind there. This is just one blaring example of the cancerous infection hiding behind the innocent sounding words such as, Progress, Social Justice and Civil Rights. This is why we need to stamp out the progressive fake Democratic Party of America once and for all in 2012 and beyond. That includes the Progressives in the Republican party also, such as Bush, McCain, McConnell, Romney, Huckabee, and anyone else who doesn’t want to abide by our immigration laws that say that all illegals will be deported as soon as possible, PERIOD. They are criminals who broke the law when entering this country illegally. They have no rights, except to be put on a bus or plane and be shipped out of America period. No Amnesty,  No excuses, just obey the rule of law !

 

Words Really Do Make A Difference

What a difference the choice of wording makes!

On September 14, at Ground Zero, President George W. Bush declared:

“I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!”

Simple words from the heart and soul of a man who was tireless in his fight against terrorism. These words struck a chord so deep within me and inspired me so much that this quote is now framed and hanging on the wall in my home office.

While I did not agree with everything that President Bush did in office it was not hard to see that he was committed to take whatever action necessary to make sure the perpetrators of the most heinous act of terror on American soil were punished. In the midst of the most horrific terror and most overwhelming sorrow our nation has ever faced in modern history, I saw resolve in our nation’s leader.

It is most unfortunate that the same cannot be said for the current administration.

Words are no longer simple and from the heart and soul, they are instead pretentious, flowery,  calculated and pre-determined at an attempt to “soften the blow” of the reality we face as a nation. This administration fails to realize that calling a lion an overgrown cat doesn’t change the ability for destruction that a lion is instilled with.

In 2009, in her first testimony to Congress, newly appointed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought to diminish the steadfast determination of this nation’s military men and women who were and still are sacrificing their time, blood, sweat, tears and very lives to bring justice that Americans so rightly deserve for the terrorist attacks against us. During her testimony she couldn’t bring herself to breathe the “t” word, opting instead to rename the attack and others like them to “man caused disasters”. I guess it just sounded “cuter to her!  When asked by the German news site Spiegel Online if Islamic  terrorism “suddenly no longer posed a threat” to America, she stated that this administration wanted to move away from the “politics of fear”, opting instead to “be prepared for all risks” that can occur.

It appears as though she missed the mark on that one! This administration is not at all prepared for any risk that comes along! Investing in the stock market is more risky now than it was in the previous administration. In today’s housing market, it is quite risky to buy a house. And one of the biggest risks Americans take today is driving up to the gas pump! The price of gas is rising at a rate of overwhelming proportions! Personally, I would never have called any of these situations terrorism, but it does most definitely resonate with Ms. Napolitano’s newly defined terminology. President Obama and his administration are most certainly causing an abundance of disasters. But isn’t this just running headlong back into the “politics of fear”? They would probably do better if they chose to call it more along the lines of “politics of conspiracy.”

President Bush was very clear that we would make no distinction between the terrorist themselves and the countries and leaders who harbored them. Not so with President Obama, because there is no longer a “War On Terror”, it is now downgraded to an “Overseas Contingency Operation.” What does that even mean?

According to the definition given at dictionary.com, this is the last term in the world that would give me confidence that we have things under control.

con·tin·gen·cy
dependence on chance or on the fulfillment of a condition; uncertainty.

Thesaurus.com gives synonyms for “contingency” as: accident, crisis, crossroads, emergency, event, if it’s cool, incident, juncture, likelihood, occasion, odds, opportunity, pass, pinch, predicament, probability, strait, turning point, uncertainty, zero hour

Plus there are a few more listed.

So, I could essentially rename President Obama’s Operation as “Across The Ocean If It’s Cool Operation”.

Or how about “Transmarine Crossroads Operation”?

Hmmm…. We could go with “On The Other Side Of The Very Large Body Of Water Uncertainty Operation”. No… none of those combination of flowery words seem to give me true confidence that yes, we will take whatever means necessary to see this to an end!The latest member of Obama’s administration to try his hand at flowery rhetoric is Eric Holder. Testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, when asked if enhanced interrogation methods were used in obtaining information that led to the eventual killing of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Holder simply could not bring himself to affirm that yes, our country succeeded in killing the mastermind behind the most horrific terrorist attack on our land! In true fashion that is this administration, he said, there was a “mosaic of sources that led to the identification of people who led” our military to Osama bin Laden. He said that assuming enhanced interrogation methods were used is hypothetical. OK, if you say so, Mr. Holder! Come on now, let’s be real! I guess this is what he had to say, because the sensibilities of the left just cannot handle the truth in this matter! And  my goodness! What if Muslims found  out that we indeed used some form of enhanced persuasion on these enemy combatants!? They might just retaliate…. or something! But wait! We can no longer call them “enemy combatants” !  Let’s instead call them “Bad Person Contenders”. Or we could even say a “patchwork” of things led us to identify the “Revolutionary Serviceman”? Yes! Much better! That will work indeed! It’s all good. Just look it all up at thesaurus.com!

And finally, in an effort to make everyone feel better about events in history, I guess we will now have to reprint all the previous books that use that horribly offensive word “War”. Hitler was bad enough! We don’t want to have to utter that horribly offense “W” word! So now we will just call it “World Kinetic Military Action 2”. And we really must use the written number rather than the Roman Numeral to keep things from appearing so barbaric! Oh hey, look! Now it makes it seem almost like a movie sequel- right?  Things weren’t so bad after all!

See now?  Changing the words to “tone down” the harsh reality makes you feel allllll better now… right??!!

Obama Administration Afflicted by Corruption

Corruption is the abuse of public office for private gain, and it tarnishes the Obama Administration at every turn. We have a tax cheat in Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. He conveniently neglected, by his account “forgot”, to pay in excess of $40,000 in payroll taxes. Showing that there is honor among thieves, Geithner then appointed chief of staff Mark Patterson, who was a former Goldman Sachs lobbyist, to oversee the $700 billion TARP program. Geithner turned a blind eye to the fact that Goldman Sachs had already received $10 billion of that money. What could go wrong? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Then there is the case of Tom Daschle who was Obama’s original choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services. Daschle’s nomination, you will recall, was withdrawn because he failed to disclose more than $300,000 in past income.

Then there is the case of Nancy Killefer’s nomination for chief performance officer. Oops, the administration “belatedly” learned that she had a lien on her property to the tune of $946.69 back in 2005 because she “forgot” to pay taxes. At this rate she’ll never reach the level of Daschle, but hey, at least she’s trying!

Then Barry Obama commits to the public that he will have “no more lobbyists” in his administration. Promptly “forgetting” his public pledge he turns right around and appoints acting Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, who used to be the treasurer of American Rights at Work.

And let us not forget William Lynn, the deputy Defense secretary, who lobbied for a defense contractor as recently as 2008. Lynn is not alone. There are more than a dozen lobbyists in the Obama Administration. Obama is fond of making great sounding pronouncements and then immediately doing the opposite, so what’s new?

And let us not forget the trickery and behind-the-scenes corruption that gave us all ObamaCare. Can anyone say Blanche Lincoln and Ben Nelson?

Gail Shumway, writing for www.redpills.com, had this to say on the subject of another icon of integrity, a certain Janet Napolitano, Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security:

Well what’s new is not just the level of corruption but the level of ignorance that is exhibited by Barry’s useful idiots. I am talking about Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. This is the top dog, and the use of that term has more than one meaning, between us and the terrorists. Oh, I’m sorry, I mean ‘creators of manmade disasters‘. Veterans, those who actually pay taxes, gun rights individuals, Libertarians, et. al. is the new terrorists. Anyway, this idiot, Napolitano, stated that “suspected or known terrorists” have entered the U. S. across the Canadian border, including the perpetrators of the 9/11 attack. REALLY!? Canada, I apologize for Barry’s useful idiot Napolitano, her IQ must have slipped at least 50 points by becoming a member of Barry’s administration. I mean it has almost become a prerequisite.

From the nationalpost.com dated April 22, 2009 entitled “The border for dummies”.

Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job? She appears to be about as knowledgeable about border issues as a late-night radio call-in yahoo.

In an interview broadcast Monday on the CBC, Ms. Napolitano attempted to justify her call for stricter border security on the premise that “suspected or known terrorists” have entered the U. S. across the Canadian border, including the perpetrators of the 9/11 attack.

All the 9/11 terrorists, of course, entered the United States directly from overseas. The notion that some arrived via Canada is a myth that briefly popped up in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, and was then quickly debunked.

Informed of her error, Ms. Napolitano blustered: “I can’t talk to that. I can talk about the future. And here’s the future. The future is we have borders.”

Just what does that mean, exactly?

Just a few weeks ago, Ms. Napolitano equated Canada’s border to Mexico’s, suggesting they deserved the same treatment. Mexico is engulfed in a drug war that left more than 5,000 dead last year, and which is spawning a spillover kidnapping epidemic in Arizona. So many Mexicans enter the United States illegally that a multi-billion-dollar barrier has been built from Texas to California to keep them out.

In Canada, on the other hand, the main problem is congestion resulting from cross-border trade. Not quite the same thing, is it?

But enough of the minions. Obama appears to take the cake when it comes to integrity issues. Here are a number of examples of alleged inconsistencies between Obama’s words and documented truth:

  • “Selma Got Me Born.” – The truth is that Obama was born in 1961 and the Selma incident didn’t occur until 1965.
  • “Father Was a Goat Herder.” – Obama’s father was a privileged, well-educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.
  • “My family has strong ties to African Freedom.” – Obama’s cousin Raila Odinga created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007 in Kenya. It was the first widespread violence in Kenya in decades.
  • “My grandmother has always been a Christian.” – In a public interview Obama’s grandmother admits that she does her daily Salat prayers at 5 a.m. and states “I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith.” The elderly women said that in a recent interview in Kenya. Also, Christianity wouldn’t have allowed her to have been one of 14 wives to one man.
  • “My name is African Swahili.” – Actually, Obama’s name is Arabic and ‘Baraka’ (from which Barack come) means ‘blessed’ in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama.
  • “I never practiced Islam.” – Obama practiced it daily at school, where he was registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until Michelle Obama made him change it so that he could run for office. Enter Rev. Wright.
  • “Present votes are common in Illinois.” – They were common for Obama but not many others in Illinois have 130 NO VOTES.
  • “I was a professor of law.” – He was a senior lecturer on leave.
  • “I was a Constitutional Lawyer.” He was a senior lecturer on leave.
  • “I have released my state records.” – State bills Obama sponsored or voted for have yet to be released.
  • “I won Michigan.” – He lost Michigan.
  • “I won Nevada.” – He lost Nevada.
  • “I don’t take PAC Money.” – Obama takes lots of PAC money.
  • “I inspire people with my words.” – He inspires people with other people’s words. Cue the Teleprompter.
  • “I am as patriotic as anyone.” – He has refused to wear a flag pin. He doesn’t put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem. There was a Cuban flag with Che Guevara displayed at Barack Obama’s campaign Office which he allowed to be displayed. He voted against making English the official language of the United States. He voted to give illegal aliens Social Security benefits, which would bankrupt the Social Security system for Americans legally paying into it.
  • Wal-Mart is a company I wouldn’t support.” – Michelle Obama received nearly a quarter of a million dollars through Treehouse, which is connected to Wal-Mart.

Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, once said that “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Other notable Goebbels quotes that appear to have been taken to heart by Obama include:

The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”

“Intellectual activity is a danger to the building of character”

“Faith moves mountains, but only knowledge moves them to the right place”

“If the day should ever come when we [the Nazis] must go, if some day we are compelled to leave the scene of history, we will slam the door so hard that the universe will shake and mankind will stand back in stupefaction.”

“Whoever can conquer the street will one day conquer the state, for every form of power politics and any dictatorship-run state has its roots in the street.”

It has been said that today we see the same old sins – performed by new people. Corruption becomes a habit within societies. It takes the clear, calm voice of truth to shed light on government corruption. It takes a free press to hold government officials accountable for their words and their deeds. It takes a free people with liberty in their hearts to oust the corrupt from public offices. It takes new people exercising the same old rights of free people everywhere to keep corruption in check.

Nullify the Real ID Act

House Republicans seem to be confused about which side they’re on, again. Roughly one month after voting overwhelmingly in favor of extending certain unconstitutional provisions of the so-called Patriot Act, they are urging the Obama administration not to delay the implementation of the Real ID Act of 2005, which will otherwise take effect on May 11.

The Real ID Act, an unfunded federal mandate which requires all fifty states to issue federally compliant identification cards, was swiftly signed into law by President Bush after being passed with no debate. Proponents claim that it will make it easier to combat terrorism and crime, though when asked for specifics, they tend to fall back on nonsensical Bush-era neoconservative talking points.

Critics on both sides of the aisle point out, correctly, that Real ID will make it easier than ever before for identity thieves to obtain personal information, while foisting an utterly unnecessary financial burden onto states that are already strapped for cash. And, of course, government programs always evolve, so what will the next step be? As the U.S. regresses into the ideological darkness of statism, the very authoritarianism our heroic founders left behind, how could future administrations—worse than the current one, unimaginable as that seems—abuse and exploit a national identification card?

Fortunately, sixteen states have passed laws rejecting Real ID, while another eight have enacted resolutions expressing opposition to the mandate. It is interesting to note that this is not a red/blue issue; the states opposed to Real ID are all over the map, both politically and literally, from Maine to South Carolina to Illinois to Hawaii.

Not all states have reacted so wisely. Some, like Delaware, began issuing federally compliant identification cards without any local legislative authorization whatsoever, while adamantly (and dishonestly) denying that the move would lead to a national identification card.

It’s quite likely that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has been a vocal opponent of Real ID in the past (though she wants to replace it with a similar law that would probably be even more frightening), will delay the implementation of the law.

However, Napolitano’s decision shouldn’t make a difference to the fifty states. With nearly half of them prepared to violate federal law by saying “no” to Real ID, there is no reason to assume that the implementation of the law—whether it takes place on May 11, or years from now—will affect anyone, provided that state governments simply exercise their constitutional right to nullify it.

Nullification, despite being suspiciously absent from most public school curriculums, has a long and honorable history in the U.S. It is the process by which one or more states invalidate an unconstitutional federal law, whether by blocking its enforcement, or simply ignoring it. An excellent example from the 19th century is the Fugitive Slave Act, which permitted slave-catchers to recapture escaped slaves, even in “free” states. A number of northern states nullified this unjust law, including Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Their noble efforts were opposed by the Supreme Court, but the fact of the matter is that a handful of black-robed judges cannot really force a state government to do anything, and in this case, northern states acted appropriately, if illegally.

Suppose that, say, a quarter of the states refuse to comply with the Real ID Act. What will the Democrat-controlled federal government do? Withhold funding for other programs? Send in armed troops? Throw a temper tantrum—or be forced to admit that it’s not nearly as powerful as it likes to pretend?

We’ll have to wait and see.

One Decision From Disaster [PodCast]

The unions are just another mechanism by which the progressive, extremist, left-wing radicals are working to fundamentally transform America. Unfortunately, they are only the enemy within, there is China, Mexico and much else we should be concerned with. Each of these critical things could be dealt with by making one critical decision – by the end of the podcast, you’ll know who has to make it.
