American Pride -Where?

Do we really need to have a reason not to let any ethnic, religious,or political group to use our own constitution to manipulate our laws vs. common sense to erect a glareing 'in your face' monument to violence against the very principals we are as AMERICANS?

Our President refuses to acknowledge what is so painfully obvious to the rest of America, we who clearly remember the horror of 9-11, must stand up and put an end to this madness by collectively saying "NO!" to the
Islamic "victory" mosque at Ground Zero.

All that said....think of this. America and being proud to be an American is at stake. There has been a constant tearing down. dumbing down and weakinging of 'Patriotism' for America. It's a shame that we have to wait every 4 years to get excited about the Olympics to feel all warm & fuzzy about how great America is. Our kids question when it is appropriate to place their hands over their hearts to pledge or to fold their hands to pray, yet we bend over backwards to accommidate political radicals and Imams. Illegal aliens and those who wish to give them amnesty are causing further means to mutilate, corrode, shatter, and abrade true Patriotism and Pride of all Americans.

Watch to following video. The events of our young nation, the Good and the Bad, the Hard and the Wonderful.....if this doesn't move you to realize why we need to remain Proud of America no matter what is thrown at us, then shut up and stay out of the way.

Scathing Congress report slams Obama's 'covert, criminal activity'

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued a scathing staff report today charging that the White House has "used the machinery of the Obama campaign to tout the president's agenda through inappropriate and sometimes unlawful public relations and propaganda initiatives."

An advance pre-publication copy of the report, shared by Issa's Washington office with WND, accuses the White House of nothing short of criminal activity. It charges the Obama administration with violating federal laws to advance what the Government Accounting Office has characterized as an unlawful "covert campaign," using federal resources "to activate a sophisticated propaganda and lobbying campaign."

Pulling no punches, the Oversight Republican Report accuses the Obama White House of "violating federal law prohibiting the use of appropriated funds for publicity or propaganda purposes."

"The White house has failed to transition from campaign mode to leadership mode and is now inappropriately leveraging those campaign-trail relationships to unlawfully generate support for the president's agenda," the report concludes.

Read in its entirety, the Oversight Republican Report charges the Obama administration with the type of callous, unethical and possibly criminal manipulation of public opinion that is reminiscent of Watergate and the illegal campaign activities engineered by Donald Segretti on behalf of the Committee to Re-Elect the President during Richard Nixon's presidential election campaign of 1972.

This is all very disturbing. If these allegations can be proven and traced to Obama and his staff, are these grounds for impeachment? Nothing would do more to close the gaping wound in America that has been inflicted by this administration's arrogance and deceit, than to have them removed in public disgrace.
Finally! Somebody with the political balls to call them out!

$26.1 billion bailout - more distruction

Why is Congress demanding that governors and mayors fire teachers, cops and firefighters before cutting ridiculous spending like this:

$120,000,000 spent on state-run liquor stores - Washington State

$39,608,662 spent on neighborhood & recreational services - Newark, New Jersey

$7,000,000 spent on museums - Oakland, California

$1,607,367 spent on awards and prizes at county fairs - Illinois

$1,000,000 spent on mural art - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

$750,000 spent on the opera house - Baltimore, Maryland

This week Speaker Pelosi has called the House of Representatives back to Congress. The intent is to spend another $26.1 Billion.

The Porkulus II: what it does....

Forces states to take bailout dollars, bypassing Governors who refuse the money, and forbidding them from making necessary budget cuts.

Gives teachers unions roughly $50 - $100 million through trickle-down.

Will increase the deficit by $12.6 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Will result in a permanent tax increase of $9.7 billion for U.S. multinational companies - increasing the cost of doing business and risking jobs during the recession. (Interestingly, the revenue from these same tax increases have already been spent...twice, in two other pieces of legislation!)

The fact is, the federal government cannot afford to bailout states who refuse to cut back spending. In case Nancy Pelosi forgot, the American people still fund the federal government. If states can't afford it, neither can the federal government. Bailing out states and extending failed stimulus programs only perpetuates states' reliance on the federal government.

What there is nothing we can do about it. Guess what? No amount of good conservative candidates can fix this mess...and if they try, they will be the most hated people on earth for reining in, making big cuts and depriving these bloodsuckers who are not willing to give up these programs and entitlements. Hate to say it....a crash and collapse will be easier to endure than living with the long term effects of what Dems have done to America in just the last 2 years.

What American Dream?

One surely wonders these days when these people will ever awaken from their long slumber to realize that their once sought after “American Dream” has turned into an “American Nightmare”, all occurring as these same people neglected to remember one of the most time-honored and fundamental facts of human existence, that the future for our children rests in what we do today, and, perhaps, best articulated by the great American Revolutionary War Patriot Thomas Paine who said,
“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.”

Time for the United Nations to Leave the United States

War is being waged against the rights of American Citizens, and the enemy HQ is located in New York City, USA. This enemy is the UN.

Two major meetings, possibly affecting American gun owners’ rights, will occur at the United Nations (UN) in New York over the next several weeks. They are the Fourth Biennial Meeting of States to Consider the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms in all its Aspects, (“BMS4”) June 14-18, and the Arms Trade Treaty Preparatory Committee (“ATT Prep. Com.”) July 12-23. Wait it gets better.

A Mexican diplomat will chair the meeting and Mexico, which blames its crime problems on the U.S., is now pushing for more gun control in America. Anti-gun, anti-U.S. measures could well be on the table. And what countries leader recently stood before the US Congress and used made up data to blame the US for its woes? Yep, the great bastion of democracy, Mexico. Coincidence? If you believe the life rules of Lee Roy Jethro Gibbs, there is no such thing as coincidence. Let's call this planned happenstance.

The BMS4 is a continuation of the so-called “Programme of Action” (POA) adopted by the UN at a conference in 2001. Anti-gun groups saw the original POA as a vehicle for UN gun bans, registration schemes and other radical proposals. The U.S., through the efforts of Ambassador John Bolton, forced the removal of provisions targeting privately-owned firearms from the POA. It was not able to stop the POA itself, and the UN holds “Biennial” meetings every two years to keep the POA alive. Heavily-funded anti-gun groups will again attempt to get the UN and its member states to target the right to arms at the BMS4.

If this has your head spinning, there's more. There is yet another anti Second Amendment movement in the UN. Its called the Small Arms Treaty. In fact the Washington Times ran a story on June 5, 2010 which claimed the Obama Administration said it would support the treaty. The NRA, has since said that story is false. But the fact remains, the UN Small Arms Treaty does exist and if ratified it could give a foreign government power to over rule the US Constitution in the United States!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's the issue here!

Regardless of your stance on guns, you better stand up for the Constitution because if "one goes, they all go". Meaning when one part of the Constitution is neutralized, others will follow in lock step.

Our Constitution and the fact that citizens own guns is what gives us the 'fear factor' that those in the United Nations want to distroy most. Our military couldn't be more spreadout around the world than they are right now and our national guard has gone too....that just leaves us, the citizen patriot to hold down the fort from the schnanigons of the United Nations.

And here's the other issue....after todays mini speech from the prez where he says to hell with all the legal process of appointing judges...(because 80% of his appointees don't pass muster)and let's get those radical liberal gavel holders back to work to 'improve' social justice.

I say, "An armed society is a safer society". This prevents innocent people from becoming victims and may make these "out of control-repeat enabled offenders from carrying on their violent ways.

Law abiding citizens must stand up for themselves since the lawmakers only seem to protect the freakin criminal. Any lawmaker who seeks to destroy your ability to defend your life as guaranteed in the second amendment, should be treated as a thug themselves. Arizona give us the biggest example. They won't respect our rights and our life, we don't respect their inept ability to govern.

Obama's CLAIMED Inherited Deficite

The Washington Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough ... a lot of people swallow this nonsense. So once more, a short civics lesson.

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. They controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period: (below)

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

As the U.S. Economy Grinds To Halt....

WASHINGTON—The U.S. economy ceased to function this week after unexpected existential remarks by Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke shocked Americans into realizing that money is, in fact, just a meaningless and intangible social construct.

What began as a routine report before the Senate Finance Committee Tuesday ended with Bernanke passionately disavowing the entire concept of currency, and negating in an instant the very foundation of the world’s largest economy.

“Though raising interest rates is unlikely at the moment, the Fed will of course act appropriately if we…if we…” said Bernanke, who then paused for a moment, looked down at his prepared statement, and shook his head in utter disbelief. “You know what? It doesn’t matter. None of this—this so-called ‘money’—really matters at all.”

“It’s just an illusion,” a wide-eyed Bernanke added as he removed bills from his wallet and slowly spread them out before him. “Just look at it: Meaningless pieces of paper with numbers printed on them. Worthless.”

According to witnesses, Finance Committee members sat in thunderstruck silence for several moments until Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) finally shouted out, "Oh my God, he's right. It's all a mirage. All of it—the money, our whole economy—it's all a lie!"

Screams then filled the Senate Chamber as lawmakers and members of the press ran for the exits, leaving in their wake aisles littered with the remains of torn currency.

U.S. markets closed as traders left their jobs and resolved for once to do or make something, anything of real value.

As news of the nation's collectively held delusion spread, the economy ground to a halt, with dumbfounded citizens everywhere walking out on their jobs as they contemplated the little green drawings of buildings and dead white men they once used to measure their adequacy and importance as human beings.

At the New York Stock Exchange, Wednesday morning's opening bell echoed across a silent floor as the few traders who arrived for work out of habit looked up blankly at the meaningless scrolling numbers on the flashing screens above.

"I've spent 25 years in this room yelling 'Buy, buy! Sell, sell!' and for what?" longtime trader Michael Palermo said. "All I've done is move arbitrary designations of wealth from one column to another, wasting my life chasing this unattainable hallucination of wealth."

"What a cruel cosmic joke," he added. "I'm going home to hug my daughter."

Sources at the White House said President Obama was "still trying to get his head around all this" and was in seclusion with his coin collection, muttering "it's just metal, it's just metal" over and over again.

"The president will be making a statement very soon," press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters. "At the moment, though, his mind is just too blown to comment."

A few U.S. banks have remained open, though most teller windows are unmanned due to a lack of interest in transactions involving mere scraps of paper or, worse, decimal points and computer data signifying mere scraps of paper. At a Bank of America branch in Spokane, WA, curious former customers wandered aimlessly through a large empty vault, while several would-be robbers of a Chase bank in Columbus, OH reportedly put their guns down and exited the building hand in hand with security guards, laughing over the inherent absurdity of the idea of $100 bills.

Likewise, the real estate industry has all but vanished, with mortgage lenders seeing no reason to stop people from reclaiming their foreclosed-upon homes.

"I don't even know what we were thinking in the first place," said former banker Nathan Collins of Brandon, MS, as he jimmyed open a door to allow a single mother and her five children to move back into their house. "A bunch of people sign a bunch of papers, and now this family has no place to live? That's just plain ludicrous."

The realization that money is nothing more than an elaborate head game seems to have penetrated the entire country: In Wilmington, DE, for instance, a collection agent reportedly broke down in joyful sobs when he informed a woman on the other end of the phone that he had absolutely no reason to harass her anymore, as her Discover Card debt was no longer comprehensible.

For some Americans, the fog of disbelief surrounding the nation's epiphany has begun to lift, with many building new lives free from the illusion of money.

"It's back to basics for me," Bernard Polk of Waverly, OH said. "I'm going to till the soil for my own sustenance and get anything else I need by bartering. If I want milk, I'll pay for it in tomatoes. If need a new hoe, I'll pay for it in lettuce."

When asked, hypothetically, how he would pay for complicated life-saving surgery for a loved one, Polk seemed uncertain.

"That's a lot of vegetables, isn't it?" he said.

Empty Store Shelves coming soon!

Read This... (Thanks Christopher for the great link)

What does the average Joe or Jane do —

personally or collectively — if the lights go out, the

banks close down, gas dries up, food gets scarce and

crime increases substantially?

Anyone who sits on paper dollars for very long is a fool.

In my opinion, you can trust tangibles (like silver, food and guns), but you shouldn't put much trust in paper currency in the long term. To safeguard your net worth in the inflationary days to come, always remember: Don't leave your earnings in paper money for long. As quickly as possible, convert it into tangibles, to protect your savings from the ravages of inflation. Consumer price inflation is mild now, but that probably won't be the case in the near future. Adjust your monetary mindset and your modus operandi!

Equal Justice Under the Law

Not only does Todd Gaziano (Congressional appointee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights) claim that the 2008 Election Day voter intimidation charge against the Philadelphia New Black Panther Party was“open and shut,” but that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes ordered, “Never bring another lawsuit against a black or other national minority, apparently no matter what they do.”
Like the Van Jones story, the ACORN story, and the Charlie Bolden/Muslim outreach story, this is another example of stories the MSM doesn’t want you to know about. And why not?

They don’t fit the narrative. WTF???
If this "narrative" is what they want America to look like, then they aren't going to be happy with me, my friends or family. Sorry, you socialistic dirt-bags, hate to burst your bubble, but I ain't going quietly into that dark night.

UnFricken Believable! Sue Who???

This is very disturbing! Fifty-four percent (54%) of the total combined deficits of all the states in 2009 and 2010 are attributable to spending on illegal aliens. And this number ($84 billion annually) is probably understated in that it probably does not include the amount we spend for border control, law enforcement, and incarceration of illegal alien criminals. In addition, when one considers that these illegals do not pay much in taxes and take jobs from unemployed Americans, it is obvious that the price we pay for not enforcing our laws is unsustainable and immoral. And this is not racist...I'd say the same thing about any invasion from a foreign country. If Canadians were coming over by the millions and taking advantage of our system and sending the money home...I'd feel the same way.

And, instead of protecting the border which is one of his primary constitutional requirements, our manchurian president has the gaul to sue Arizona for trying to enforce the laws that the Federal government won't enforce. It's dereliction of duty! Look that one up, mr president, it's right above "deresive".

Barry, to quote Governor Brewer, "it's time to step up and do your job! Protect the border"!
Maybe the American people better sue YOU! Not protecting our country is an impeachable offense, you fool! (but then, the american people are cowards, right? Isn't that what your administration thinks and are counting on?)

Here is paragraph 18 of the Federal Government's complaint of injunction against Arizona:

18. In exercising its significant enforcement discretion, the federal government

prioritizes for arrest, detention, prosecution, and removal those aliens who pose a danger to national security or a risk to public safety. Consistent with these enforcement priorities, the

federal government principally targets aliens engaged in or suspected of terrorism or

espionage; aliens convicted of crimes, with a particular emphasis on violent criminals, felons,
and repeat offenders; certain gang members; aliens subject to outstanding criminal warrants;and fugitive aliens, especially those with criminal records.

The above is bizarre and simply not true. Enforcement priorities? Are you kidding? The reason the Feds prioritize arrests is because of limited resources - not because it is ok to violate the law. It's not ok to violate the law. The Feds simply don't have the manpower in law enforcement and the money to arrest and hold everyone who violates the law so naturally the Fed prioritize and focus on the most violent. But in this instance, the state of Arizona is saying essentially, "we will help. We will pick up the tab - manpower and custody for the Feds."

We might not last until Elections in NOV

The Economy and just about any other topic that is Headlining could erupt, distrupt or distruct at any time. US Treasurer, Tim Geithner described last week that our country can no longer be the one others look out to. " USA will no longer drive world economic growth", we can no longer consider the USA as the champion for every cause or the country with political clout. We live in a very fragile state and tomorrow could bring the one trigger that could send us over the edge.
Until recently, most people in the United States of America did not believe that President Obama's mission was actually to destroy our country.

If we are to survive as a nation and a people—or simply survive at all—we will have to rebuild it almost from the ground up, collapse or not. In order to do so, we will have to rid ourselves of the Marxist traitors to this country who now inhabit and infest the All 3, Judicial, Congressional and Executive branches of government in Washington DC and many of our State elected offices. If we are to survive and, again, begin to live, we must never allow an anti-human Marxist and/or Maoist contingent to enter any form of government—let alone the office of president.
The US Declaration of Independence—our nation’s first founding document—tells us what is required of We-the-People.

It reads in part: “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. That to SECURE these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

Of particular significance is the last sentence which I reiterate:
“That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

We can either sit back and let the progressive liberals write a new Declaration of Independence or Stand UP and demand we defer to the 'original' that tells us what we must now do.

We-the-People have reached the point of making a decision to live under a now openly spoken-about-by-Obama tyranny or fight—once again—for the right to be free men and women.
As we are being herded more and more every day into the fenced in Obama dictatorship, you—WE—must now make our choice. But, before you make your decision please remember this: To do nothing is to submit. We either choose to live in true freedom or the squalor Obama has planned for us.

US City Taken Over By Illegal Immigrants

Dateline Maywood, California. This Los Angeles County municipality --- 97% Hispanic, 40% illegal --- was one of the first cities to declare itself a sanctuary city and to demand a boycott of the state of Arizona for enforcing immigration laws. It's city council is entirely Hispanic and dominated by La Raza racists. Years ago, it prohibited its police department from confiscating cars from unlicensed drivers. It has demanded Congress grant unconditional amnesty to illegal immigrants. It is every progressive left/Wall Street Journal policy on open borders concentrated in one Los Angeles suburb.

How's that working out for them?

Today, Maywood is broke. Its police department dismantled along with all other city departments and personnel. Only the city council remains and a city manager to manage the contracts with other agencies for city services in Maywood.
Even the L.A. Times called the Maywood Police Department a "haven for misfit cops." Their story alleged that a veteran officer was extorting sex from relatives of a criminal fugitive; that another officer tried to run over the president of the Maywood Police Commission; and that another officer has impregnated a teenage police-explorer scout.

Maywood is the end result of what Obama-Napolitano-La Raza-the Arizona boycotters and the editorial board of the WSJ want for America.

...and I invite anyone who's ever said .....but their just good people looking for a better life or"...we WELCOME immigration, we just want to stop criminals from coming in..."to live for a week in Maywood.

I'll wager that (illegal immigration aside) most of those folks are not criminals or terrorists. But you c'mon down and see what it's like. Check out what these folks do to a neighborhood. They have a third-world, almost tribal way of life AND ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION OF CHANGING IT.

The sickly squalor, the noise, the ignorance, the bigotry (oh yes, white bleeding heart progressives, your Latino amigos don't look at you with love in their eyes!) try living with that for a while.

THEN realize that you're looking at literally thousands of square miles that are mostly Latino ghettos with a few areas holding on by their fingernails to stay nice. When immigrants, both legal and illegal, come here and don't assimilate, they bring their form of "justice, law and government" with them - all of which are corrupt in their home countries.

THE PROGRESSIVES ARE COUNTING ON WHITES STAYING GUILT-RIDDEN UNTIL THE INVASION IS COMPLETE. Once that happens, that pesky Constitution will suddenly not apply anymore, and the re-Mexification of the U.S. will be a fait accompli.

If you are not a US citizen, you're a guest. You left your country for a better one, just don't turn us into the country you left!

Is Maywood, California The Most Corrupt And Racist City In America?

Obama To Earn Nearly $85 Million From Gulf Oil Disaster

Well isn’t this interesting? Check out what revealed. Obama will earn nearly $85 MILLION from this gulf oil disaster! No wonder he has all this time for golfing, parties, and never spoke to BP CEO Tony Hayward! It’s all becoming all too clear now:

“Goldman Sachs wasn’t alone either in its astute “foreknowledge” of the collapse of BP’s stock value due to the Gulf disaster as BP’s own chief executive, Tony Hayward, sold about one-third of his shares weeks before this catastrophe began unfolding too.

But according to this FSB report the largest seller of BP stock in the weeks before this disaster occurred was the American investment company known as Vanguard who through two of their financial arms (Vanguard Windsor II Investor and Vanguard Windsor Investor) unloaded over 1.5 million shares of BP stock saving their investors hundreds of millions of dollars, chief among them President Obama.

For though little known by the American people, their President Obama holds all of his wealth in just two Vanguard funds, Vanguard 500 Index Fund where he has 3 accounts and the Vanguard FTSE Social Index Fund where he holds another 3 accounts, all six of which the FSB estimates will earn Obama nearly $8.5 million a year and which over 10 years will equal the staggering sum of $85 million.

The FSB further estimates in this report that through Obama’s 3 accounts in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund he stands to make another $100 million over the next 10 years as their largest stock holding is in the energy giant Exxon Mobil they believe will eventually acquire BP and all of their assets for what will be essentially a “rock bottom” price and which very predictably BP has hired Goldman Sachs to advise them on.

Important to note is that none of this wealth Obama, Goldman Sachs, and other American elites is acquiring would be possible without this disaster, all of whom, as the evidence shows, “somehow” knew what was going to happen before it actually did, including the US energy giant Halliburton who 2 weeks prior to this disaster just happened to purchase the World’s largest oil disaster service company Boots & Coots”.

Is Obama's BP Shakedown an Impeachable Offense?

The president has no legal authority to create the escrow fund and no authority to compel BP to contribute to the fund. Forcing BP to agree to the terms of the escrow is ultra vires (i.e., illegal), beyond the powers of his office. Rep. Barton (R-TX) accurately described the slush fund as a "shakedown" (i.e., blackmail), a felony. If so, Pres. Obama has committed an impeachable offense. Congress itself does not have the authority to create the escrow fund retroactively. Congress will have no voice at all except to vilify any Republican who raises questions about it. All the ACORN employees who lost their jobs when the banks stopped paying "blackmail" to ACORN may be getting better-paying new jobs processing claims.

No doubt the media, which show pictures of the spill and pelicans covered with oil 24 hours a day, seven days a week, will hail the president's tough dealing with BP. But BP's oil spill deserves the strongest action under the law, not above the law. A few miles away, there are pelicans flying "free as a bird" with no oil on them. Not a single photo of them. And more than 10,000 barrels of the spilled oil are being recovered by BP daily with no photos at all; vessels are skimming oil near the spill, and no photos. And the federal government has yet to grant exception to the Jones Act that is preventing foreign vessels ready to skim oil from getting closer to shore to prevent more serious damage which would, incidentally, help save a lot of pelicans. No wonder BP believed it had to surrender to the president.

You don't have to be paranoid to suspect the president (and many in the media) of ulterior motives, a hidden agenda. If you can get enough people to hate the oil companies, you might get the cap-and-trade bill passed. By the time they regret such hasty action, it will be too late to undo the damage. Cap-and-trade was given no chance for passage before the spill. The president pacified the environmental extremists by banning drilling in the Gulf for six months, adding to the rolls of the unemployed and increasing our dependence on foreign oil. To make the hidden agenda more believable, the president overreached by getting BP to agree to pay the lost wages incurred by workers who lost their jobs as the result of the president's six-month moratorium on drilling in the Gulf. The hidden agenda obviously includes getting cap-and-trade passed. It looks like "cap-and-trade, cap-and-trade, cap-and-trade" has displaced "jobs, jobs, jobs."

The president employed a similar tactic when he nationalized GM, violating the bankruptcy laws by denying bondholders their rightful control of the future of those enterprises, and he gave the bondholders' interest in GM to the unions instead, literally. He gave Chrysler to Fiat. The bondholders of both gave their consent, being afraid of having their asses kicked or having a boot on their necks.

When an executive uses threats to secure the "cooperation" of private businesses, we have a name for it: fascism. It is the kind of act we expect from Venezuela's Chávez, not from a president who swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution and its separation of powers. I believe the President's behavior is ultra vires and that he has committed an impeachable offense.

Storm is Brewing...Indicators

Citing what he believes are clear signs the economy is bouncing back from recession,Vice-President Joe Biden yesterday touted Barack Obama's 'stimulus package' and bailout of Wall Street.

The Obama administration's economic stimulus program has allocated $620 billion so far and created or saved at least 2.3 million jobs, Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday. "The Recovery Act is working," Biden said. "It's going to continue to work. It's not over."

Time for yet another fact-check on the pathological liars of the Obama Administration.

Banks are failing at double the rate of last year. During 2009, which the government claims was the peak of the recession, the total number of bank failures at this point in the year was 40. It is already 83 for this year. As losses have mounted on loans made for commercial property and development, the growing bank failures have sapped billions of dollars out of the deposit insurance fund. It fell into the red last year, and its deficit stood at $20.7 billion as of March 31. Yet the FDIC is running ads on radio stations across the country attempting to scare people away from keeping their savings at home and making the wildly erroneous and reckless assertion that as long as the FDIC insures bank accounts they can never fail, no matter what. That statement is a bare-faced lie.

The FDIC depends on bank fees and taxpayers to insure deposits in banks. So, what if banks continue to fail? Where will the money come from to 'cover' bank accounts? A taxpayers bailout? Such a notion is also ludicrous when the U.S. is in debt by over 13 TRILLION dollars, and when one adds in unfunded liabilities, that debt is actually 109 trillion. usdebtclock

If the U.S. were to sell every single asset we have--land, homes, businesses, everything, the total value would be roughly 50 trillion. Thus, we are in debt at the rate of DOUBLE the amount of our entire value.

In addition, the number of jobs the Obama Administration claims it has 'saved or created' includes multiple thousands of temporary jobs, such as census workers, who will be out of work very shortly. The private sector is clearly NOT rebounding when it comes to job creation.

One more dire indicator of continued economic distress is the rate of home loan defaults and foreclosures. The number of homes repossessed during April is at an all-time high of 92,432. That is a 45% increase over April 2009. If repossessions continue at this pace, more than 1.1 million homes will be lost in 2010. About one in four U.S. homeowners is underwater and 5 million of those borrowers owe mortgage debt that exceeds their property values by 25% or more. The total of negative equity in these deeply underwater borrowers is a whopping $655 billion.

These various factors add up to one simple, sobering truth--the economy is not on the rebound, and the Obama Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress (which has been in Democrat hands since 2006) can take little comfort in what that means for the upcoming midterm elections in November....but alot can happen between now and then...are you prepared?

Opportunity to stop the Obama-EPA power grab

Certain members in Congress
are challenging the aggressive encroachment of Obama's
statist tentacles by introducing a resolution (SJ Res. 26)
to disapprove the EPA's over-reaching actions. This
resolution would block the EPA from imposing the Obama
carbon scheme.

Sen. Murkowski has pledged that the Senate will vote on
this issue, likely before the end of the month. That
means citizens have just a few weeks at most to let
their voices be heard.

Clearly, Obama is using the EPA to force Congress to act.
If the EPA ruling stands, Obama wins either way. Through
the EPA or Congress, another sector of the economy will
fall under the control of the Obama administration.

Starting in July 2011, new sources of at least 100,000 tons of greenhouse gases a year and any existing plants that increase emissions by 75,000 tons will have to seek permits, the agency said.

In the first two years, the E.P.A. expects the rule to affect about 15,550 sources, including coal-fired plants, refineries, cement manufacturers, solid waste landfills and other large polluters.

Last fall the E.P.A. had indicated that the bar would be set at 25,000 tons a year, which would have imposed the permit requirement on smaller entities like family farms and large apartment buildings. Once the DOOR is opened, the threat of EPA's over-reaching actions is endless.
