Yesterdays news brought us Obama's answer to the BP crisis, "just plug the damn hole." Seriously, Why didn't I think of that? I guess because I am not the largest recipient of BP political donations ( See Politico article Obama "is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years.). My thoughts on this are that the Obama administration has made it very clear that their mantra is "never waste a crisis" (Want examples? Click here.)"
Now the Dem party has come out saying this truly is Bush's fault (See Dodd’s interview today). Duh! Bush is obviously in bed with big oil, and DO NOT pay attention to the actual money here. Don't pay attention to the man behind the mirror either. Instead please let me sell you some ocean front property in Arizona (courtesy of George Strait).
Speaking of Arizona, DHS has released a terror alert for the TX border (see Houston news report), while the administration is drafting a legal challenge to AZ for trying to close theirs. BTW - Has anyone read the 10 page bill YET? I'm guessing that's still no.
As far as our troops go (you know the ones risking their lives to protect us from these terrorists), Our President is to busy trying to socially re-engineer our military instead of getting them the right guns they need in Afghanistan (see report from Britain on US guns failing). Add insult to injury, The President of The Unites States won't be honoring our military at the tomb of the unkonwn soldier this year. He has plans in Chicago instead.
Good old Chicago, That reminds me of the new bailouts for Unions and the SEIU, who is too busy terrorizing Bank of America employees children, to pay back the $90 million they owe them. (see article on SEIU's ties to Media Matters & Huffington Post) Now Bob Casey wants Congress to give them a $165 billion bailout. After all, the SEIU spent millions to get Obama and Casey elected (see Washington Times article). "This is nothing more than a closed-feedback loop for Democrats... or as it used to be known, a shakedown racket." ( See Where did SEIU get 150 million for political donations).
Last but not least, our GDP has hit 90%, but we can, "Just keep printing. Just keep printing;" and bail out Greece too (their GDP is 115%). Heck when it's our turn maybe they'll print some money for us. As Thatcher said, the problem with socialism is you eventually run out of other people's money.
Given the totality of the situation in front of us, "You would think we would be saying Thank You."
Which makes my point, Clearly the Lunatics are Running the Asylum.

Top 10 complaints:
10. 10th amendment
9. Government forcing individuals to purchase a product…
8. IRS should not have the authority to fine/ imprison those who resist…
7. No company can sue the government for price-fixing. No "judicial review" is permitted against the government monopoly. Where is our legal recourse in this system? The Federal government enjoys sovereign immunity, unless they waive that immunity. So the monopoly leads to single payer (as explained by Obama here). Citizens were mad when HMO's denied care - what recourse does one have when the government denies care???? I fought the law and the law won.
6. Under the health care bill, there is no ban on abortion funding. While some states can opt out of funding abortions under the plan, taxpayers in other states will be forced to pay for them. It is against my religious beliefs to pay for abortion and as a conservative Catholic that includes the morning after pill and the birth control pill and aborted fetal cell line vaccines. When I was pregnant with my second son, I went into HELLP syndrome. I was told I needed immediate delivery. In my third pregnancy, I developed preeclampsia and trended to HELLP so I was immediately induced. Given my history and complications, I am deeply offended at the Mikulski amendment, which allows the Obama administration to define abortion as preventative care and force insurance plans to pay for abortions. Abortion is not health care.
5. The Federal government is "commandeering" the state legislatures for federal purposes – this is unconstitutional! The federal government is saying you have to fund this; you (PA) must spend state taxpayer-generated dollars the way we tell you; Furthermore, how does this impact state licensure of hospitals, medication, or health care providers? Is it another takeover of state's rights?
4. The sweetheart deals in the health care reform bill– the Louisiana Purchase, Cornhusker Kickback, Gatorade Exception and others treat citizens differently based on which state they live in, running afoul of the Constitution's equal protection clause. The Federal government is forcing Pa to pay the bills of the states that don't have to pay.
3. Union members are exempt from “Cadillac taxes” that the government imposes on other citizens….. Discrimination! The government is deciding these are our favorites. Government choosing winners and losers is detrimental.
2. Senior staffers and the President will be exempt from the exchanges and the government takeover of health care. I don’t see how this is a “uniform” application. It sure as heck isn’t representative government, and it rings of “let them eat cake.”
1. Section 7 (constitution) All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills. The “presentment clause” describes the only way that a bill can become law. Of course this bill was written in the senate…… If our constitution doesn't matter, then we’re really in trouble.
Of course these arguments take into consideration the truth behind Obama’s Executive order: from the Wall Street Journal Opinion Section “The wording of the order seems to do nothing more than the language of the Senate bill that Mr. Stupak had previously said he couldn't support, and of course such an order can be revoked whenever it is politically convenient to do so.”
It also takes into account I am not a constitutional scholar and this is my best understanding.

Dems would like you to believe that Republicans trying to offer solutions and fixes are just the party of No.... Interesting, these amendments sound good to me.....
"Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn said he wants a vote on his amendment to prohibit coverage of Viagra for sex offenders. New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg wants savings from Medicare cuts plowed back into the health care program for seniors, instead of being used to expand coverage to the uninsured. Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi wants to gut penalties on employers whose workers wind up getting taxpayer subsidized coverage. "What we're doing is offering amendments to take out the sweetheart deals, to take out the overcharging of students on the student loans, to take out the taxes on people who make less than $250,000, which the president promised he wouldn't do," said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., of the overhaul. "And then we'll get into the points of order and there may be some constitutional issues raised during that period of time.""
But what is the Democrat response: "Democrats are vowing to bat down the Republican amendments one-by-one."
Looks like the republicans are the party of No to back room deals, kickbacks, buy offs, and all those things Obama campaigned that he too was a No about.... while the Democrat majority party is now the party of No compromise, No real solutions, No protection for Americans, No hope and change.....
This is why the bigger the government the smaller your personal freedom. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. If you like Government problems, just wait until you see their solutions.

As of 12/ 17 by executive order from the President: US citizens are now subject to INTERPOL authority. DO NOT FEAR, terrorists will still be afforded rights under the US Constitution!
In all seriousness, the following is taken from threat watcher's article: Executive Order Amended to Immunize INTERPOL In America - Is The ICC Next?:
Last Thursday, December 17, 2009, The White House released an Executive Order "Amending Executive Order 12425." It grants INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) a new level of full diplomatic immunity afforded to foreign embassies and select other "International Organizations" as set forth in the United States International Organizations Immunities Act of 1945.
By removing language from President Reagan's 1983 Executive Order 12425, this international law enforcement body now operates on American soil beyond the reach of our own top law enforcement arm, the FBI, and is immune from Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
You can read the actual executive order for yourself here:
AMENDING EXECUTIVE ORDER 12425 DESIGNATING INTERPOL
AS A PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION ENTITLED TO ENJOY CERTAIN PRIVILEGES, EXEMPTIONS, AND IMMUNITIES
Jake Tapper from ABC news, gives a great history and context on his blog: Just What Did President Obama's Executive Order regarding INTERPOL Do? - Political Punch From Jake's article, I understand that this order takes the power away from the people (protected under the Constitution) and switches it to the President. Because now his branch is the only office to decide when they are under search and seizure and the Freedom of Information Act. HMMMMMM - if Bush was the only one with that power, I wonder how people would feel?
Here is a great article questioning this decision and explaining the implications from NRO: Why Does Interpol Need Immunity from American Law?
Again, threat watcher has an even more grim perspective suggesting this is the first step to the Rome Treaty and placing the US under the International Criminal Court system, but oh how libs love to minimize and attack those who point to slippery slopes! Executive Order Amended to Immunize INTERPOL In America - Is The ICC Next?
Here is what I know. Harold Koh, who is the President's legal advisor to the State Department, is a transnationalist. I think we can infer the President is as well. This means that they truly believe it is in the best interest to submit to international law as the most sovereign and not the US Constitution. Justice Ginsberg & Kennedy are transnationalists, who often site international law over the constitution in decisions on the US Supreme Court.
Here is how I think this has happened. The United States has slowly removed God from our nation. However, the Declaration of Independence so wisely states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." This was done so that we would all have rights that cannot be taken away by another man, another institution, another government.
In other words to deny a person rights under our constitution requires that they be dehumanized. We saw this with slaves in the Dredd Scott case of 1857. The US Supreme Court declared black people were property to be bought, sold, or killed. Proponents argued that the opponents’ morality should not be forced on slave owners who had the right to choose. We see this same argument and decision in Roe V Wade in 1973. The unborn are not legal persons. If they were, they too would have to be afforded rights and protections endowed by their Creator.
But we have kicked God out of the public square. We've argued the constitution was written by old slave owners who knew nothing. We argue it is not a fixed document, but a living, breathing, ever changing document. Our best and brightest, most intellectually elite, Yale and Harvard educated (Koh & Obama) firmly hold it is a document open to interpretation. We no longer look to rights established by our Creator. So where do we look? Enter in the transnationalist. These judges believe they need to look for answers in an authority higher than themselves, so they have determined they will look to the international community. You see Bob Dylan said it best, as humans we will have to serve somebody. Religious serve their God. Communists serve their leader. Transnationalists serve the international governing agencies. And the power hungry greedy? They serve themselves of course.
It is the natural outcome of a philosophical worldview. However, too many of us no longer follow our conclusions to their natural end anymore. We don't have time to follow the bunny trail and examine what we've been sold. We buy the window dressing and take what we're served. We don't question. It's wrapped in a pretty package and it sounds so nice and sparkly: hope and change; shiny and bright; new not old. We accept. What's wrong with hedonism? Why are we so constrained by these rules and natural laws? Let's just evolve! And if we really pretend that there is no evil and therapy is the cure, we can all just have a nice sunshiny happy hoppy feel good day.
God save us! In my humble opinion, yet another reason the church holds socialism is evil. It inherently denies the failing of humanity, or as my husband said best: "All Governments, and agencies, are altruistic, benevolent and for the greater benefit of its people. Until they aren't..."

They are dead and we have time for thank yous? I mean George Bush was crucifed for finishing a story with children so as not to scare them. So let's give this the same scrutiny: Obama gives a voluntary "I'd like to thank the academy" speech, while our troops are slaughtered at home and while they die in Afghanistan with 2+ mos of indecision...

Christie won his primary. I preferred Lonegan, but the people of New Jersey made their choice. Now the country is watching. Corzine has staked his re-election on being an Obama darling. Contrast this to Creigh Deeds, who is losing to conservative McDonnell (1). Two weeks before next Tuesday’s election, the Obama Administration began blaming Deed’s loss on his refusal to align with them like Corzine (2). Translation: This is all about the President. He cannot be responsible for election loss, or all those Democrats in Capital Hill will get nervous and recognize the tide has turned. The midterms are quickly approaching. But a win… a Corzine win will be his referendum. He will use it as a victory that the country still supports him. He will state eloquently that it is proof that the tea party movement is in fact very small. He will assert the votes are evidence that his supporters are the new silent majority.
If Christie wins, a very LOUD AND CLEAR message will resound across the country that even blue New Jersey is wary of Obama policies. Democrats will take note. The tea party will show solidarity, which will let politicians know that the liberal elite’s method of divide and conquer will not be so easily applied. In this election, at this moment, a third party vote will simply guarantee a green light for the policies of the most liberal leftist government we have seen. President Obama will not waste an opportunity. He will use a win as a green light for healthcare.
So, I need to take a moment and clarify how I can argue so passionately for a Christie win, when I just told the RNC, I sent the money that we earmarked for them to Hoffman. On the surface it seems like this is a contradiction, I say don't vote third party and then I support third party, but when you look a little deeper my reasoning is consistent. I support Hoffman for the very reason I support Christie. It sends a LOUD AND CLEAR message.
Dede Scozzafava did not win a primary. Unlike Christie she was not the people’s choice. She won a committee vote unanimously. I can speculate a lot about that, but this election highlights an important lesson for all conservatives. If we want to win our party back, if we want to change it back to Reagan, then we have to start at the committee. The secular progressive socialist party took control of the Democrats by winning elections, which starts with the committee. We are smart and wise to do the same. Reform the party from within. Commit to work and vote. Don’t just throw away a viable system for a third party rebellion that gave Clinton a two term Presidency.
A Hoffman vote says we do not want dem-lite, leave that to the blue dogs and southern dems – and we’ll be better for it. It says we are united to work for grassroots conservativism. It says we will be heard and we will take our party back from the hands of people like Snowe, Collins, and Benedict Arlen who gave us spendulous. It was only 5 years ago that the RNC and President Bush dictated Arlen Specter was our candidate - what would have happened if they left it to the people?
A Hoffman vote begins the take back of our party. A Christie vote begins the take back of our country. So choose carefully, because your votes next Tuesday are sending messages, and they matter. The whole nation is watching and it will influence the healthcare outcome, because it won’t just be a protest. It will be your vote!
1. Brief disclosure: McDonnell’s major fault is that he graduated from my alma mater Regent University; therefore, he is a Christian conservative worthy of being thrown to the lions in our new Rome.
2. Deeds ignored advice, White House says
Tuesday, September 15, 2009
House Democratic leaders will formally discipline Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., today by "resolution of disapproval."
From Fox News: "Democrats say the insult clearly violated House rules of decorum. Therefore, the issue needs to be resolved on the House floor, either via apology or resolution," said Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly. The House rules state that lawmakers may not accuse the president of "lying" or being a "liar." Wilson apologized twice after the speech. One was a general, written apology. He also issued a mea culpa by phone to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. The president said Thursday he accepted and appreciated the apology."
So let's talk hypocrisy.
First, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C.states "Ignoring the issue sets a precedent for bad behavior." Well I guess he is right, considering this precedent was set during President Bush's State of the Union address in October 2006. At that time, the Democrats, including then Senator Obama, obstructed his speech, and the House ignored it (link to video and photo)
Second, these rules did not apply to Democrat James McDermott, Democrat Pete Stark, or Democrat Barbara Lee:
When ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked Democrat James McDermott, "Before you left for Baghdad, you said the president of the United States will lie to the American people in order to get us into this war. Do you really believe that?" Representative McDermott replied on foreign soil, "I think the president would mislead the American people." No apology required.
Pete Stark called President Bush a liar and defamed the troops. Furthermore, Stark is quoted as saying " I came here last year & accused president Bush of being a liar. A year later, I feel no reason to apologize or change my opinion. Events have proved that point. CHAIRMAN says: "The Chair would advise the gentleman to refrain from personally offensive references against the President." Pete Stark apologized for his remarks about our soldiers. Joe Wilson apologized to the White House. One will be disciplined. One was not.
Democrat Barbara Lee is also quoted on the House floor. "I have been appalled by the growing evidence that the President may have lied about the reasons for invading and conquering Iraq CHAIRMAN says: "The chair would remind Members that it is not in order to accuse the President of lying.... or stating intentional falsehoods, even by innuendo..." No apology was required to avoid discipline. Even worse, when Lee was given a chance to comment about Wilson, she stated, “I was outraged, shocked and saddened.”
Third, Joe Wilson did, in fact, expose the truth, albeit rudely; while, our President did, in fact, misrepresent, albeit eloquently. Not only did the AP reported in its fact check that the President’s speech was full of “oversimplifications and omissions;” but also, the "gang of six" rushed to close the loophole Wilson exposed the very next day.
So let's talk dangerous precedent.
We have been screaming from the town halls all summer, and all of our effort resulted in a Presidential speech that dismissed us. On the one hand, Wilson exposed the truth. His actions resulted in the issue being resolved, and he has apologized twice for his rudeness (i.e., corrected his bad behavior).On the other hand, the President has accepted the apology, but remained silent on the formal discipline. He has not acknowledged Joe was correct, and he has not apologized once to his constituents for his misstatement.
In his speech, President Obama stated, "If you misrepresent what's in the plan, we will call you out." Those are the words, but the actions are much more scary. We have a man who truthfully represented the plan, and the United States Government is calling him out? Are we really okay with the House of Representatives having a rule that, overly simplified, states a citizen cannot call another citizen a liar? According to this, our Representatives could not have called Nixon a liar. Have we elevated the office of the Presidency to infallibility? It would seems so, when you consider that recently the Democratic leadership has called people like me:Nazis, brown shirts, and Astroturf. Furthermore, Speaker Pelosi has said the CIA lied. In2002, Harry Reid said Bush lied. I even found a quote from Former President Harry S. Truman, who called Richard Nixon "a shifty-eyed GD liar." So, our speech is protected, unless we are a Republican House Representative speaking against the President?
Dangerous precedent is being set today. Rude trumps true.

Pondering how GE, who has taxpayer bailout $$$, has to pay 50 million in fines for cooking their books like Enron, and General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt gets to keep his seat on the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board and there is no AIG outrage or ACORN protest at his house. There aren't any senators calling for him to fall on his sword either. There aren't any forced resignations or congressional hearings. Heck, there isn't even media coverage. Hmmm? Why won't NBC owned by GE whose CEO is an advisor to the President report this????????

Did You Know? Congress rejected an Amendment that required they be on the same Health Care they are demanding for us?
A friend of mine from NC told me that congresswoman Sue Myrick and several other members of congress introduced an Amendment to the health care bill that said if a public health care plan passes the congress, The President, Vice President and all members of Congress and the Senate must submit to whatever healthcare legislation is passed.
The amendment failed and was dismissed as not being “germane” to the debate

Top White House officials counseled Democratic senators Thursday on coping with disruptions at public events on health care this summer, officials said, and promised the party and allies would respond with "TWICE THE FORCE" if any individual lawmaker is criticized in television advertising. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/08/07/health-punch-back/
Then you add to it the White House Webpage email, tattletale and report any criticism of Obama Care

Then you add to that the new tone is Washington.... if we don't like what you say, we'll censor you. Aren't you glad Pelosi is 3rd in line to the Presidency?

Last night Orielly said people weren’t scared to speak out. My dad spoke out from his passion to hisl eaders and he is certain his small business will be audited and his company which is being crushed under obamanomics after 23 years will go under. I am scared. I am now considered a right wing stay at home Mom DT by my country. They minimize my passion and dismiss my voice. Who will represent me? Specter? Sestak? Casey?
And I still maintain how many of us conservative Philly suburbonites were able to get into that meeting, since the highway was shut down?

President Obama wants me!!!!!
I just read this and saw it for myself... very scary. The White House is asking supporters to report all dissenters to their site. Your tax dollars are paying for this. Man, Obama is Nixon on steroids. http://www.redstate.com/jeff_emanuel/2009/08/04/call-for-informants-if-you-oppose-obamacare-the-white-house-wants-to-know-about-it/
Read for yourself, From the White house website: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/
"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org."
This whole thing reminds me of the official DHS report which defines domestic terrorists as,
"Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration." and.... "Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use." http://michellemalkin.com/2009/04/14/confirme-the-obama-dhs-hit-job-on-conservatives-is-real/
So here it is. Top 10 reasons Obama may think I am a Domestic Terrorist:
10. I believe Obama care offers No life. No Liberty and No pursuit of happiness. I am rejecting government authority.
9. I believe that we should try state solutions to healthcare before we go into a fully funded irreversible Federal plan. Massachusetts universal Health care is going Bankrupt. Tennessee’s plan is in trouble. Hawaii pulled their plan. Let's learn from a local level to find a truly great American plan. That means I prefer state authority.
8. I do not believe that my tax dollars should be used for the back door FOCA. I stand with Father Provone and Priests for Life. Some could isolate what I say to purport I am a single issue voter.....
7. I believe everyone in this country gets to vote for their own reasons. I believe their reasons are private and they don't owe me an explanation, which may mean I support single issue causes and voting....
6. I believe the government should keep its laws of my grandparent’s bodies. I am rejecting government authority, again.
5. I write, I call, I send out emails.....
4. I believe abortion is black genocide. More African-American babies have been killed by abortion during the past 30 years than the total number of African-American deaths from all other causes combined, including AIDS, heart disease, cancer, violent crimes and accidents. http://www.nationalblackprolifeunion.com/ So I wholeheartedly reject the expansion of abortion in healthcare to minorities.
3. I stand with President Ford, "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have."
2. I am mad that my 5 year old reads more than our Congressmen and women. There I go being single issue again.
1. I live in PA and I quote, "You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." Obama 08
Disclaimer: I am not a domestic terrorist and I love this country - and its Judeo Christian roots. Oh crap. Did I just give another reason? Thank You Senator Forbes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpQOCvthw-o
