Financial Tornado 2010 - The Day the Dollar Died


Ordinary citizens worked at their jobs, sent their children to school and worried about their grades, maneuvered for promotions and rejoiced when they got them, and generally expected things to get better than the year before, for it was the American Way. You work hard, pay your taxes, live a good life, stay out of trouble with the law and all is well.

2009 ushered in a new President who rode the wave of 'change'. The people wanted less government and transparency. They wanted the politicians to clean up their porkbellied wild spending from the Bush days and they thought the young Obama was their man. Instead, we got a inexperienced idealist who is failing everywhere: foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly, in forging connections with the American people. The promises of his campaign were lies, he's a phony, knows nothing about economics, and is historically illiterate and woefully small minded for the size of the task. He has enlisted advisors for every aspect of his administration and lets the unelected run the country. He has no clue to the long term effects of having a majority vote for any bill, ignoring the wisdom of those who oppose him and the wishes of the people, the citizens. He closes his first year with false stimulation, with a huge Healthcare bill under his belt and Global Cap and Trade well on it's way, blameing the previous presidents for the state of the economy.

2010 will be the year of change....these changes will take everyone by surprise.

There will be a Run on the U.S. Dollar ....Soon - Within the next 12 months, the U.S. Treasury will have to refinance $2 trillion in short-term debt. And that's not counting any additional deficit spending, which is estimated to be around $1.5 trillion. Foreign countries own over 44% of our debt. The USA is a net debtor to the world.

We have seen the storm brewing for some time now. There are big banks of clouds building on the horizon. Picture a big funnel dropping down out of the clouds. Swirling round and round is WallStreet,the Fed, Banks, Agriculture, Congress, Imports, Exports, Oil, and the US Dollar.
The funnel is swirling and growing everyday, swirling and making a fine whippet of a tail, just about to hit ground. When the Financial Tornado hits, it will zig-zag through every state, county and town. No person will go unharmed.

The tornado hits soil....The Dollar is Dead.
With the currency goes many of the lifetime plans of average citizens, also the American Way.

Most Citizens are taken by surprise by the financial tornado. Those who didn't plan ahead for any type of disaster, natural or otherwise, are suddenly desperate.

The Banks are closed, credit cards and atms are worthless, as are all paper investments:401K's, pensions, savings, stocks, bonds and insurance policies. Citizens will scramble to get rid of their currency on hand, exchanging it for any hard asset that has a seller willing to accept cash, even at a much inflated price. Food will be the most desirable commodity, water will soon follow.

Survivors of the Great Depression and those who 'think' it will be similar, will be shocked at how events turn out this time around.

"People just didn't understand what was happening. All the economic theory they had been taught didn't provide for the phenomenon. There was a feeling of utter dependence on anonymous powers -- almost as a primitive people believed in magic -- that somebody must be in the know, and that this small group of 'somebodies' must be a conspiracy."

"The cities were still there, the houses not yet bombed and in ruins, but the victims were millions of people. They had lost their fortunes, their savings; they were dazed and inflation-shocked and did not understand how it had happened to them and who the foe was who had defeated them. Yet they had lost their self-assurance, their feeling that they themselves could be the masters of their own lives if only they worked hard enough; and lost, too, were the old values of morals, of ethics, of decency."

No Fema or RedCross to the rescue.
Companies, businesses, factories and all manufacturing will close
until they can figure out a way to pay their employees.
No money=No heat, electricity, phone,cable and other infrastructure.
Moms and Dads will do the unthinkable to keep their children fed.
No SS checks for the elderly or Welfare for the poor.
People who had worked a lifetime found that their valuables would not buy one cup of coffee.
The law-abiding citizens will crumbled into petty thievery. Riots and looting, and drastic elimination of the population will occur for both good people and bad.
Gasoline is siphoned from cars until there is no more.
Hospitals and pharmacies will be emptied of all drugs and medicines, patients as well.
Trucking will end and grocery stores will not be restocked.
Farmers will not be able to plant or harvest.
There will be no laws or anyone to enforce the old ones.

Those families who survive the first month, will have received the education of a full combat veteran. America will be a 3rd world country and surviving will only be possible for those willing to adapt. Those who stay morally just and are willing to work harder than they ever have in their lives will survive.

There will be roaming criminals and gangs of lazy entitled people who think their survival is more important than yours. True survivors will walk softly and carry a big stick. Yes, guns will be the only way to protect the haves from the havenots. And the banding together of good people in small protective groups, who will work to protect and survive all dangers presented, will be the norm.

And what happens with the government and the USA? Those officials who are not assassinated or have commited suicide, will have gone into hiding. There will be no one left in Washington to take charge. The World economy will suffer and other countries will soon follow suit. The foreign investors who feel they need to be paid back for their ustreasury bills and other assets, will come calling to take possession. Other countries may see it as a great opportunity to do the same and they will go to war against each other on our soil.
Our troops are stranded in Iraq and Iran. Our military here at home, as well as citizen volunteers, will be commanded by true Patriots and will fight the good fight. The outcome is anyone's guess. If nuclear warheads are never used and foreign intruders are sent packing, recovery of the homeland will be slow.

Survivors will be as the pioneers were and the economy be built by trading and bartering for labor or the products made. Trade fairs and farmers markets will bring in more buyers and sellers. Gold and junk silver coins will be the mobile currency until small town banking can back notes and loans to bring local commerce back. A Free-Market entrepreneurial economy will pave the way for the New Libertarian - one who opposes government intervention, i.e., a defender of Liberty and Constitution.

It will take years, possibly decades before the people slowly allow any formal government to intrude in their lives. When government and taxes are needed for the expansion, the Constitution will be followed. All tax dollars will be held by the States as the new Treasury. The Government will never spend more than what is collected and any Bill that spends tax dollars that effects future generations, will be voted on by the citizens before going to the President for signing.
America will become American again and alot of tuff Patriots will sacrifice everything to make this happen.

Parting thought, as we head into 2010, go prepared people. Do the simple research of what you need to do to get prepared for the worst, it will be the best insurance you can buy. Invest your dollars while they still have value. Have plenty of food and water on hand and get the skills and knowledge to make the right decisions for optimal self sufficiency. Also, follow the wise advice on many great websites, forums and podcasts. Get Ready!

What's Gold worth?



Those commercials to invest in Gold flood the radio and TV. They say to secure your portfolios with gold. There's no doubt about it, we're in the middle of a very bad economy and 2010 is going to be a tough year.

If you look up the prices, you think there is 'no way' to get involved buying now.
As preppers, we have read that it is a good idea to have some on hand before SHTF.
So what's your reason or definition of gold & silver?? And what's it worth?

What if things get really bad? What if every "asset" you have disappears and you are on your own? What if the government is gone and there is no order? Gold coins will be your secret weapon to get through the mess. No matter what, they are always worth money. You will be able to use your old coins to barter and get yourself and your family to safety. Of course, it will be the wild west and you will need to fend for yourself and avoid getting taken advantage of (and your gold stolen) but if you're savvy, it's better to have gold on your side than nothing. Of course, in this case, it's unlikely you will be able to get to your safe deposit box and that's why I recommend being smart about hiding some gold and silver coins in your home and on your person.

Gold jewelry is going to be worthless in trade and gold bought from the trading houses and held in reserve 'on paper' is going to be worthless.
Only Coins...will be trusted.Gold coins or old silver, pre-1965 and in any condition, will be far more valuable that bullion chunks because it would be hard to make change from large amounts.
Coins in hand, are portable, readable, measured, authentic and good from any country. These coins will not be backed by any government, they are valued for just what they are...pre-measured valued asset in assayed metal.
Barter will be the fare of the day, but adding a few coins to the deal, will assure you make the trade. Adding a few coins in the post economy of your immediate trade area will also add 'currency' into the hands of those who didn't plan ahead.

If you ask the average person what they think about gold, they picture a pirates treasure chest of chains and goblets, bags of nuggets from a miner or they picture big heavy bricks at the Mint. When they see a coin, all they can come up with for value is just a little above face value for vintage sake. Check out this Youtube...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?

Average people on the street have no clue to the value of gold and silver. They don't realize they will need something of value when the paper dollar is worthless. Clueless is, what clueless does...so they must have looting as their game plan when the dollar hits the skids....

And if gold and silver coins are not in your budget, better be checking with aunt Betsy or Grandpa NOW to see if they have some pre-65's in a fruit jar somewhere that you can trade some work for. Next best thing is to collect high priority barter items and that list is long. Buy junk coins in this recession, and your life could improve! I truly wish you the absolute best of luck and hope these tips help you through some difficult times.

Anatomy of a Failed Presidency!




The following is an interesting article and I wonder how long Dr. Hunt
can remain at NIH once the powers that be get wind of this article.

Dr. Hunt is a social and cultural anthropologist. He has had nearly 30
years experience in planning, conducting, and managing research in the
field of youth studies, and drug and alcohol research. Currently Dr. Hunt
is a Senior Research Scientist at the Institute for Scientific Analysis and
the Principal Investigator on three National Institutes on Health projects.
He is also a writer for American Thinker.

..................

Another Failed Presidency

An article from American Thinker by Geoffrey P.Hunt

Barack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed
presidency since Woodrow Wilson. In the modern era, we've seen several failed
presidencies--led by Jimmy Carter and LBJ. Failed presidents have one
strong common trait-- they are repudiated, in the vernacular, spat out. Of
course, LBJ wisely took the exit ramp early, avoiding a shove into oncoming
traffic by his own party. Richard Nixon indeed resigned in disgrace, yet his
reputation as a statesman has been partially restored by his triumphant
overture to China 20.

But, Barack Obama is failing. Failing big. Failing fast. And failing
everywhere: foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly,
in forging connections with the American people. The incomparable Dorothy
Rabinowitz in the Wall Street Journal put her finger on it: He is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them. Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard says he is failing because he has lost control of his message, and is overexposed. Clarice Feldman of American Thinker produced a dispositive commentary showing that Obama is failing because fundamentally he is neither smart nor articulate; his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by its audacity and lack of shame.

But, there is something more seriously wrong: How could a new president
riding in on a wave of unprecedented promise and goodwill have forfeited
his tenure and become a lame duck in six months? His poll ratings are
in free fall. In generic balloting, the Republicans have now seized a
five point advantage. This truly is unbelievable. What's going on?

No narrative. Obama doesn't have a narrative. No, not a narrative about
himself. He has a self-narrative, much of it fabricated, cleverly
disguised or written by someone else. But this self-narrative is isolated and doesn't connect with us. He doesn't have an American narrative that draws upon the rest of us. All successful presidents have a narrative about the American character that intersects with their own where they display a command of history and reveal an authenticity at the core of their personality that resonates in a positive endearing way with the majority of Americans. We admire those presidents whose narratives not only touch our own, but who seem stronger, wiser, and smarter than we are. Presidents we admire are aspirational peers, even those whose politics don't align exactly with our own: Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Harry Truman, Ike, and
Reagan.

But not this president. It's not so much that he's a phony, knows
nothing about economics, and is historically illiterate and woefully small
minded for the size of the task--all contributory of course. It's that he's
not one of us. And whatever he is, his profile is fuzzy and devoid of content, like a cardboard cutout made from delaminated corrugated paper. Moreover, he doesn't command our respect and is unable to appeal to our own common sense. His notions of right and wrong are repugnant and how things work just don't add up. They are not existential. His descriptions of the world we live in don't make sense and don't correspond with our experience.

In the meantime, while we've been struggling to take a measurement of
this man, he's dissed just about every one of us--financiers, energy
producers, banks, insurance executives, police officers, doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, post office workers, and anybody else who has a non-green job. Expect Obama to lament at his last press conference in 2012: "For those of you I offended, I apologize. For those of you who were not offended, you just didn't give me enough time; if only I'd had a second term, I could have offended you too."

Mercifully, the Founders at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 devised
a useful remedy for such a desperate state--staggered terms for both
houses of the legislature and the executive. An equally abominable
Congress can get voted out next year. With a new Congress, there's always hope
of legislative gridlock until we vote for president again two short years
after that.

Yes, small presidents do fail, Barack Obama among them. The coyotes
howl, but the wagon train keeps rolling along.

Take a gander before it gets taken off the air. Interesting strongest video clips we have ever seen and they are from his own mouth!!! Muslims have Christmas?

http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=tCAffMSWSzY#t=28

Sorry to bring this up right before Christmas, but it might just be the reason we will be enjoying our holiday as we do, for the last time. If the economy isn't the immediate reason that we will give up certain traditions, the other reason is the growing openness of Muslim influence and take over of our Christian country and one direct way to tear down the Constitution.

Enjoy your Christmas Decorations.
Enjoy the Christmas Music.
Enjoy the wonderful community Street Lights.
Enjoy the Choirs and kids a caroling.
Enjoy the open greetings of Merry Christmas when you meet a friend or stranger.
Enjoy the Shopping and the money to do it.
Enjoy lots of Gifts and tree to place them under.
Enjoy the season for the Reason!

Merry Christmas all!

(from: A leader I can believe in)

You can not bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You can not strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You can not help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You can not further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred.
You can not help the poor by destroying the rich.
You can not keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
You can not build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You can not help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

NEBRASKANS ON SENATOR BEN NELSON'S HEALTHCARE SELLOUT: "SUE US!

By Judi McLeod Tuesday, December 22, 2009

“Equality before the law” may be the state motto for Nebraska, but some Nebraskans are asking for sister states to sue the Cornhusker state.

“Is there anyone out there that will sue the State of Nebraska and/or Senators Ben Nelson and Harry Reid?” asks Patricia Rief-Heskett of Omaha.

The chairman of Nebraska’s Republican Party declared Nelson’s decision to be the end of his political career in Nebraska, and within hours of Nelson’s announcement, the state GOP launched a Web site, , to collect funds to oust the Democrat in the 2012 election. (givebentheboot.com)

Nelson obtained increased federal funds to cover his state’s cost of covering an expanded Medicaid population at what one Democratic official estimated at $45 million over a decade.

Nelson isn’t taking the backlash lying down.

“This is all orchestrated,” Nelson said Sunday. “It’s so thinly disguised ... it’s almost laughable.”

While Sen. Nelson has become “Ben the Cornhuckster” by making himself the 60th vote needed to advance ObamaCare, some Nebraskans want a lawsuit launched against their home state.

“The deal the senator made for the State of Nebraska is against the law and against the Constitution,” says Rief-Heskett. “Why should the state of Nebraska not have to pay for the unfunded mandate of Medicaid and all the other states have to pay for Nebraska’s portion?”

And the Omahans has crossed all of her ‘ts’ and dotted all of her ‘i’s.

“Our Constitution states in Article 1, Section 9: `No preference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue to the ports of one State over those of another’.

“Article 4, Section 4 states: `The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a Republican form of Government’. Also under our US code Title 18 210 Titled Bribery of Public Officials and Witnesses: Section B reads, `Whoever directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official (officials is defined as a member of Congress, Delegate or Resident Commissioner) or any person who has been selected to be a public official, or offers or priorises any public official or any person who has been selected to be a public official to give anything of value to any person or entity with intent (a) to influence any official act; or (b) to influence such public official or person who has been selected to be a public official to commit or aid in committing, or colluding, or ally any fraud or make opportunity for the commission of any fraud on the United States.”

As the Constitution is clear on the commission of any fraud in the making laws, Rief-Heskett is asking “Where is the outrage against this practice of buying votes with such as the deal Sen. Nelson made with Sen. Reid for the 60th vote for this health care bill on the Senate floor?”

Washington, DC politicians may have been up to 1 a.m. Monday to nudge the health bill forward, but some Nebraskans are up all night trying to turn the tide against Christmas Eve legislated Obamacare.

“Is there not one person out there who will file a suit,” asks Rief-Heskett. “Or are we just to sit by and watch all of our freedoms taken away to live in a country with no laws that has only to abide by a Congress who would buy out votes whether or not it is lawful?”

Meanwhile, with Christmas Eve just two days away they’re over at the White House puffing up the red ribbons on a package that will socialize medicine in America.

Fraud is Fraud



Is Carbon really the problem????

Of the three places where carbon is stored—atmosphere, oceans, and land biosphere—approximately 93 percent of the CO 2 is found in the oceans. The atmosphere, at about 750 petagrams of carbon (a petagram [Pg] is 10 15 grams), has the smallest amount of carbon.

So the Oceans of the world are the largest contributor to the global CO2. How are they going to stop that from happening? Marine plants and animals play a role in the uptake and release of carbon dioxide in the ocean. Plants, primarily phytoplankton, but also macrophytes such as this seaweed, take up carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which oxygen-dependent animals need to survive.
At 280 parts per million (ppm) by volume for at least 1,000 years prior to the industrial era. Atmospheric concentrations of CO 2 were constant because the carbon being removed from the atmosphere in some places exactly matched the CO 2 being added to the atmosphere in other places.

The oceans cannot be changed. People are the problem to these people. So to go back to the preindustrial era is the only way to get back to these numbers. That means no electricity, no cars, no planes and no industry. So in order to make this global change that is the current goal of the climate changers is to ruin the industrial world take us back to the pure agrarian days eliminate the people and animals they depend on for food.
If we go down this road, we are doomed to follow wacky science into oblivion to upset the oceans and our way of life to archive these crazy goals?
Sorry, I do not buy it.

Perhaps the facts that have been force feed by the so called scientists, where they admitted to doctoring the facts to make their conclusions where one even stated the trick he used was to add figures to the facts to reach Gore's stated objective, should be repudiated and criminal charges brought in every country these scoundrals exist in. Fraud is Fraud.


STATES Nullify the new Healthcare Bill!!

Right on the heels of a successful state-by-state nullification of the 2005 Real ID act, the State of Arizona is out in the forefront of a growing resistance to proposed federal health care legislation.

This past Monday, the Arizona State Senate voted 18-11 to concur with the House and approve the Health Care Freedom Act (HCR2014). This will put a proposal on the 2010 ballot which would constitutionally override any law, rule or regulation that requires individuals or employers to participate in any particular health care system.
HCR2014, if approved by voters next year, also would prohibit any fine or penalty on anyone or any company for deciding to purchase health care directly. Doctors and health care providers would remain free to accept those funds and provide those services.

Finally, it would overrule anything that prohibits the sale of private health insurance in Arizona.

When a state ‘nullifies’ a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or ‘non-effective’, within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as the state is concerned

Five other states — Indiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota and Wyoming — are considering similar initiatives for their 2010 ballots.

http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2009/06/26/arizona-hcr2014-national-health-care-nullification/

Contact your State reps including your Governors, below is an example letter you can use.

To (your state) State Representative, (or governor)

You are my representative in the (STATE) State Government and I am asking you to represent me against the attack of my personal liberties. I am asking you to stand up for freedom and express to the United States Government that when they overstep Constitutional authority, (STATE) will not fall victim to their tyranny.

The growth of the federal government and the slow method at which they have been taking away our freedom is accelerating and we are spinning out of control. For some time now it has been apparent that the majority congress and the president care nothing about what we, the people, have to say about their spending, health care, cap&trade, immigration or any other bill they seek to pass.

As a citizen of (STATE), I want you to know that I am afraid of the steps the federal government is taking to compromise my freedom. I am also worried about the steps the federal government is taking to bypass the Constitution that was designed to protect me. I am writing you to ask you to protect me from the federal government.

When the federal government passes a law that is unconstitutional, the state legislature can simply write a resolution, pass it in both houses, then send it to the be signed by the governor telling the federal government that the law does not exist in the state. No Supreme Court case, no lawyers, the state simply says no. This is well within the State's duties and rights. If that is not enough, you have the Virginia Resolution written by James Madison, known as the Father of the Constitution. In this document he tells Virginia that the only way the union is to survive is for the states to watch over the federal government to be sure they exercise only the powers assigned to them and agreed upon in the Constitution.

More recently, the issue of nullification re-emerged when nearly two dozen states mounted a resistance to the 2005 Real ID Act. Maine and Utah led the way by passing resolutions to refuse incorporation of federal security features into state driver's licenses and identification cards. After fierce state resistance to its plans, the federal government delayed implementation twice and later announced it would "repeal and replace" the controversial law. Now states have turned their attention toward nullification of federal health care "reform" should it pass Congress this year and I would be proud to see Wyoming in the forefront.

Please sign a resolution of nullification for all legislation passed by the United States Government starting as soon as the resolution is signed. Write a resolution that states that any bill passed will not become law in (STATE) without the (STATE) government passing the law. The resolution must also say that the (STATE) government is not to change any meetings and must adhere to the State Constitution’s meeting schedule. Under the powers of the Tenth Amendment, (STATE) reserves the right to accept or reject all federal legislation.

I am asking you as my representative to request a special session if one need be called. I am also asking you to have the resolution ready to be entered into both houses with the same language to smooth passage as quickly as possible. This is necessary to ensure my freedoms and yours, so please act with haste.

In the end, "for desperate people whose freedoms are being systematically usurped by all three federal branches and both political parties, nullification may be the only key to restoring our republic."

Sincerely,
(your name, address&email)

For Better or Worse...Man of the Year


Ben Bernanke is More Powerful Than Obama and is Man of the Year!

Ron Paul: "Ben Bernanke is the most powerful man in the world because he controls the supply of money, which is the dollar, which is the reserve currency of the world. He can create a trillion dollar in secret without any monitoring by the Congress. So there's no transparency and I think he is more powerful than the President.

The big question is, has he used that power for good, or for evil? And of course, my side of the argument is, the system is evil, and the chairman, whether it's Greenspan or Bernanke, they can do no good. They cause our troubles, they cause the inflation, they cause the bubbles. And therefore the bust, the correction, is always their fault.

OBAMACARE IS SERIOUSLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL


From the Heritage Foundation...Morning Bell:

On October 23rd, a reporter asked Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?” Speaker Pelosi shook her head and before moving on to another question replied: “Are you serious? Are you serious??” Pressed for a more substantive response later, Pelosi’s press spokesman admonished the reporter: “You can put this on the record. That is not a serious question. That is not a serious question.”

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) disagrees. In 1994, the CBO said of an individual mandate to buy health insurance:

A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health insurance would be an unprecedented form of federal action. The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States. An individual mandate would have two features that, in combination, would make it unique. First, it would impose a duty on individuals as members of society. Second, it would require people to purchase a specific service that would be heavily regulated by the federal government.

As much as Speaker Pelosi may wish otherwise, the CBO is dead on: the Supreme Court has never validated a federal power as intrusive as forcing all Americans to purchase a service due to their very existence. Sure, the Supreme Court has said that Congress may regulate a farmer’s production of wheat even if he never plans to distribute it off of his farm, and the Supreme Court has said Congress may ban the possession of Marijuana even if it is for personal use, but never before has the Supreme Court said the power to regulate commerce enabled Congress to force an individual to do something just because he existed.

In fact, the Supreme Court has always been clear that the Commerce clause must have some limits. In United States v. Lopez (1995), the Court struck down the Gun-Free School Zones Act, which attempted to reach the activity of possessing a gun within a thousand feet of a school. In United States v. Morrison, it invalidated part of the Violence Against Women Act, which regulated gender-motivated violence. In both cases, the Court found the regulated activity in each case to be noneconomic; it was outside the reach of Congress’s Commerce power, regardless of its effect on interstate commerce. The case for the constitutionality of the individual mandate is far weaker than either of these two cases. Congress was at least trying to regulate an individual’s activity in the cases above. But the mandate does not purport to regulate or prohibit activity of any kind, whether economic or noneconomic. To the contrary, it purports to “regulate” inactivity.

If the individual mandate is Constitutional, then Congress could do anything. They could: require us to buy a new Chevy Impala each year to support the government-supported auto industry; require us to buy war bonds to pay for the Iraq and Afghan wars; require us to grow wheat (10 bushels each), or pay someone else to grow your share; require us to buy whatever they want.

Many on the left immediately point to state mandates that drivers purchase car insurance as proof of a mandate that all Americans buy health insurance is not new. But car insurance mandates are distinguishable in at least four ways: 1) they are state requirements and states have broader constitutional authority than the federal government; 2) they apply to drivers only, not all Americans (e.g. passengers are not required to carry insurance); 3) drivers use public roads; 4) states only require drivers to insure against injury to other drivers, not to insure themselves against personal injury.

Yesterday The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Legal and Judicial Studies released a Legal Memorandum written in conjunction with Georgetown University Law Center Professor Randy Barnett and Nathaniel Stewart explaining: Why the Personal Mandate to Buy Health Insurance Is Unprecedented and Unconstitutional. Introducing the paper, Sen. Orrin Hatch noted:

James Madison said that if men were angels, no government would be necessary and if angels governed men, no limits on government would be necessary. Because neither men nor the governments they create are angelic, government and limits on government are both necessary for ordered liberty. Politics may tell us what we want to do, but the Constitution tells us what we may do and we must keep those separate. The ends do not justify the means for one simple reason – liberty. Liberty requires limits on government power, it always has and it always will.

Someone needs to explain this concept to Speaker Pelosi. And it should be explained to the dummies fabricating these BILLS! Seriously!

Collapse



24 States Borrow Money To Pay Unemployment Benefits - 15 states have collectively borrowed more than $15 billion and another 9 states are in the red over unemployment benefits. This can't be good...can you say HUGE tax increase?

Belly up: 10 states face imminent bankruptcy - Ten states are facing imminent bankruptcy, confounding any possibility of economic recovery as tax revenues continue to decline and unemployment increases nationwide. Those states in fiscal peril include California, Arizona, Rhode Island, Michigan, Oregon, Nevada, Florida, New Jersey, Illinois and Wisconsin.

US Dollar Getting Trashed Worldwide - The trade deficit of the world's biggest economy also remains huge. How much longer can the dollar defy gravity?

Last week, America's currency fell to a 15-month low against the euro, cutting through $1.5050. Against a trade-weighted currency basket, the dollar was also at its weakest since July 2008. The greenback plunged to parity with the rock-solid Swiss franc, then hit a 14-year low against the yen.

The dollar's weakness is based on fundamentals – not least America's jaw-dropping debt. It's a long-term trend. From the start of 2002 until the middle of last year, the dollar lost 30pc on a trade-weighted basis


Run on the U.S. Dollar ....Soon - Within the next 12 months, the U.S. Treasury will have to refinance $2 trillion in short-term debt. And that's not counting any additional deficit spending, which is estimated to be around $1.5 trillion.

Put the two numbers together. Then ask yourself, how in the world can the Treasury borrow $3.5 trillion in only one year? That's an amount equal to nearly 30% of our entire GDP. And we're the world's biggest economy. Where will the money come from?

The U.S. holds gold, oil, and foreign currency in reserve. It has 8,133.5 metric tonnes of gold (it is the world's largest holder). At current dollar values, it's worth around $300 billion. The U.S. strategic petroleum reserve shows a current total position of 725 million barrels. At current dollar prices, that's roughly $58 billion worth of oil. And according to the IMF, the U.S. has $136 billion in foreign currency reserves. So altogether... that's around $500 billion of reserves. Our short-term foreign debts are far bigger.

According to the U.S. Treasury, $2 trillion worth of debt will mature in the next 12 months. So looking only at short-term debt, we know the Treasury will have to finance at least $2 trillion worth of maturing debt in the next 12 months. That might not cause a crisis if we were still funding our national debt internally. But since 1985, we've been a net debtor to the world. Today, foreigners own 44% of all our debts, which means we owe foreign creditors at least $880 billion in the next 12 months – an amount far larger than our reserves.

Keep in mind, this only covers our existing debts. The Office of Management and Budget is predicting a $1.5 trillion budget deficit over the next year. That puts our total funding requirements on the order of $3.5 trillion over the next 12 months.

So... where will the money come from? Total domestic savings in the U.S. are only around $600 billion annually. Even if we all put every penny of our savings into U.S. Treasury debt, we're still going to come up nearly $3 trillion short. That's an annual funding requirement equal to roughly 40% of GDP.

Where is the money going to come from? From our foreign creditors? Not according to Greenspan-Guidotti. And not according to the Indian or Russian central banks, which have stopped buying Treasury bills and begun to buy enormous amounts of gold. The Indians bought 200 metric tonnes this month. Sources in Russia say the central bank there will double its gold reserves.

So where will the money come from? The printing press. The Federal Reserve has already monetized nearly $2 trillion worth of Treasury debt and mortgage debt. This weakens the value of the dollar and devalues our existing Treasury bonds. Sooner or later, our creditors will face a stark choice: Hold our bonds and continue to see the value diminish slowly, or try to escape to gold and see the value of their U.S. bonds plummet.

One thing they're not going to do is buy more of our debt.

Obama's " Exit" Strategy



We all knew Obama would be less than adequate when it came to the military and foreign affairs, but when you take your sweet time to try and get it right, you shouldn't have to rely on others to interpret the backlash and cleaning up the mess.

In his West Point speech, President Obama laid out an exit strategy for Afghanistan, setting July 2011 as the date on which troops will begin withdrawing. The president, through Robert Gibbs, later described this date as "locked in," "etched in stone," and having "no flexibility."

Sounds pretty definite. But just four days later, members of Obama's cabinet were directly contradicting their boss. "We're not talking about an exit strategy," said Hillary Clinton. "What we're talking about is an assessment". "We're talking about something that will take place over a period of time," said Robert Gates. "We will have 100,000 troops there. And they are not leaving in July of 2011."

This White House clearly has a credibility crisis. They need an exit strategy for their rollout of an exit strategy.

This is what I think....

The US military can leave Afghanistan any time, and I mean exactly that - everyone packs up their bags and goes home en masse - whenever that order is given.

Why fear the Taliban? How many of them are there, really, that they are worth fearing? Are they really even 'in' Afganistan? Compared to the resources of the American government­/military, the Taliban's little operation is pathetic.

We have already seen over the last eight years how standard military actions have failed to shut them down, no doubt because an army simply can't win against a guerilla force. What does an eighteen year old American kid know about fighting guerillas, never mind winning a war, beyond what's been seen via his or her XBox?

A desert war has to be fought by desert people. If there is no government infrastructure in Afghanistan, either create it or forget it. The culture is nomadic, why would they want an infrastructure counter to their lifestyle? If they won't maintain it, it's useless to build it.

The tribes are the most valuable resource that the US has to fight the Taliban. Why spend so much time and effort trying to convince America to do the job when the people of Afghanistan would very likely be happy to do it themselves, given the opportunity? Or, if they lack the numbers, where are their neighboring countries in all of this, are they not reliable allies?

Let other countries fight their own damned battles. Chances are good that everyone will be a lot happier.

22.1% Unemployment More Stimulus Equals More Unemployment


The "headline" (U-3) unemployment rate of 10.2% vastly understates the magnitude of the jobs crisis in America. John Williams' "Shadow Government Statistics" unemployment number for October is 22.1%. Williams estimates that we would have to create 22.6 million new jobs in order to get to "true" full employment. At $313,000 each, the private sector would have to invest an incremental $7.1 trillion to accomplish this.

If you divide the total real capital employed in the U.S. ("produced assets") by total employment, you get about $313,000. That is, for $313,000 in capital, the private economy can create one real, permanent, self-supporting job. In contrast, there are estimates that each of the jobs that the administration claims that "stimulus" has "created or saved" is costing about $1.2 million.

If so, this means that selling the bonds required to fund one temporary "stimulus" job will take enough capital out of the private sector to destroy four "real" jobs. This explains why, as the "stimulus" spending has ramped up, job losses have accelerated.

Unfortunately, the Administration, the mainstream media, and much of the economics profession are responding to the worsening unemployment with calls for even more "stimulus". This would compound the tragedy. Each $313,000 of bonds sold to fund the additional spending could be expected to extinguish one private sector job. In addition, we can expect that the next increment of stimulus would be even more wasteful than the first $787 billion. The "best" projects would have been included in the first stimulus bill.

Canceling the job-destroying "stimulus" program would be a good first step toward providing the private sector with the additional capital required to achieve full employment. However, this would provide only about 10% of the money required. The rest would have to be mobilized by increasing incentives for real savings and investment.

The two most effective measures toward this end would be to stabilize the dollar and to repeal the corporate income tax. The corporate income tax brought in only $138billion in FY2009. This amounts to less than 1% of GDP, and less than a fifth of the cost of the "stimulus" bill. Repealing it now would produce higher employment and higher Federal revenues within months.

I wonder what all these figures would look like if we figured in a repeal of all future income payments to Senators and Congressmen who are voted out for doing a indefensibly baneful job. If they are voted out and replaced isn't that like being fired? It would be different if they served well and retired after two terms, but the ones who clearly are inept or refuse to perform to the wishes of the constituants who voted them into a role of representing them should, not be rewarded. Instead they follow party lines and push through the administrations agenda, they follow their political party and forget about the job they were sent there to do and that is to voice the opinions of their State. If they are fired at election time, there ends their lifetime drain of future tax dollars. If they perform well and do their job for two terms, then receiving lifetime income and benefits is acceptable.(kinda) Just what are these numbers in terms of dollars we don't have for a job that borders on treason??? Put that money and future monies back toward working for the American People and easing our economic trauma. Becoming unemployed is a bitch and they should have to appreciate the same fate.

Step DOWN Geithner....blame who?


Pressure Builds On Geithner to Resign…
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) calls on Tax Cheat Obama Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to step down today during a House hearing.
Geithner supported the disastrous financial decisions that saw the national deficit triple in one year under Barack Obama:

It’s been a year since the President was elected,” the panel’s ranking Republican, Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, said at a hearing this morning featuring Geithner. “It’s appropriate for the American people to assess how well the administration’s economic policies are working. They are not. They have failed.”

“Unemployment has skyrocketed far past the White House’s projections and promises. America continues to shed jobs: more than 2.8 million since the stimulus was enacted,” Brady said. “We’ve had a series of embarrassing investigations about all the wild stimulus claims, the latest fake jobs from fake Congressional districts… You are the point man on the economy,” Brady said to Geithner. “The buck, in effect, stops with you.”
Geithner sharply rejected the call to resign and blamed the current state on what he inherited from Bush.
Ouch! ...and where was he then??? Mr Turbo Tax better get a clue!

That was today....Democrat Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon called for Geithner to step down yesterday.
Next Pelosi, Reid...then Obama

Nov 18, 2009



Soros has been propping up the dollar for awhile or it would be much lower. The market is artificially propped up by "hopes of recovery under way"--there is no recovery because there is no way to recover.
Job losses continue- record foreclosures-property values continue to fall-the dollar should be in the toilet already--but Soros props it up.
The govt keeps issuing reports thanks to the MSM or lamestreamedia that 25% of cities are recovering and other nonsense. The reason the market is being artificially propped up by govt propaganda-lies-and misinformation. The current claims of saved or new jobs is a joke. The govt makes it up-SO THEY CAN GET THE REST OF OUR WEALTH INTO THE MARKETS BEFORE THE FINAL GRAND SLAM CRASH-

THE DREADED BLACK HOLE FROM WHICH NO PRIVATE SECTOR CAN RECOVER. Then our wonderful govt will rescue everyone-yea right- cause there won't be anything left. The Dollar will then be virtually worthless as the world bails out of the buck and the people who played metals and possibly other commodities will be the only ones
left standing- probably until they confiscate metals and nationalize the oil/gas industry. They have to get the guns first to do this. They will take all this property under the guise of national security- and doing it for the country, saying it is so bad it is the only way the country will survive. Without nationalizing these things, we will be at the mercy of our enemies. No more private wealth-game set match.
Even Obama is accepting the real possibility of a double dip, which he is engineering.

In China...President Obama says he wants to "rebalance" the economic relationship between China and the U.S. as part of his plan to restart the American jobs machine He hopes that hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers will make up for the inability of American consumers to return to debt-binge spending. (wow, what optimism!)

Call it double-dip recession, call it depression...I call it the 'Great Debassion'.
The Dollar has not been depressed, it has been debased and devalued and it's days are numbered.
Are you fed up with out-of-control government spending and taxation?

Are you fed up with the government providing bailouts, not securing the borders and not drilling for oil in our own country which would hold down energy prices?

Many U.S. citizens who embrace the American Way have engaged in “tea parties”. More will tomorrow and MORE will the day after that, but it is not enough. I live in a remote area so a real "tea party" is out, instead I let my voice be heard through this Blog, Twitter, numerous forums, community blogs, letterwriting campaigns to officials and I beat my drum to whomever will listen. Don't ever believe that you are just one voice and you don't or won't have an effect on the outcome of any issue of importance TODAY. Everyone can be their own "tea partier" by getting active. Or just get more educated and following current events. Every day it is something new! Dramatic HISTORY is being made right now and whatever the future has in store, you will sure feel better knowing you played your part by "Making Your VOICE Heard!"

Islam Muslim...Commander in Chief

"If you haven't seen this...you must!



Truth is stranger than fiction, and much less popular.

IMMIGRATION Theodore Roosevelt


Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

If TR were alive today, he would be in the forefront of those seeking to change the status quo, just as he did in his own day. Today's Republicans bear no resemblance whatever to Theodore Roosevelt. They have no policies and no ideas except "No."

PROFILE the Presidency


Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned & articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger nor an extremist in his comments and views. He is a fiscal conservative, and has received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes weekly for the Washington Post.

The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and internationally. Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel like forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid, feel free.

Summary of his comments:

1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's very hard to know what's behind the mask. The taking down of the Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES!

3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along.

He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada.

4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada. God forbid!

5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States, but more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future. He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong. Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and state's rights.

9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda.. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I hope this gets you really thinking about what's happening in Washington and Congress. There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's far too late.

Do yourself a long term favor, forward the link below to all who will listen to an intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and children's futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC, and our action pursuant to that understanding!! It really IS up to each of us to take individual action!! Start with educating your friends and neighbors!!!

Obama's socialist tendancies mixed with his Islamic sympathies


"I just got more details from Fox News about the upcoming trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, better known in the press as "KSM," and four of his co-conspirators in the planning of 9/11.

You know, I really wanted to cut Obama some slack when he first got in the White House. But the more I learned, the more I saw, the angrier I got. I was angry with myself for allowing myself to be so easily duped.

Obama is allowing the people who planned 9/11 to be tried in criminal court in New York City, while those less dangerous are to be tried as planned by military tribunals. I can't help but wonder if one of Obama's closet skeletons is that he is a devout Muslim in Christian clothing who is siding with terrorists.

Consider that all during the campaign, a Bible-toting Obama attended Christian church every Sunday without fail. He'd been doing so for quite some time, but much of that time he spent in the Reverend Wright's church. Wright preached hatred and as such has no right whatsoever to be a man of the cloth. When he became a stigma, Obama resigned from his church and joined another.

But after the last of the glitter had dropped from ballroom ceilings after the inauguration, and weeks became months, I learned that Obama's church attendance had been part of the duplicity of his whole campaign persona. As far as I know, he's attended church but once since taking office, on Easter. What happened to the weekly attendance? It was nothing more than window dressing.

Suddenly, he's doing things that show far greater sympathy to Allah than Jesus Christ. The cutthroats who shoot at our troops in Afghanistan, if captured, are read their Miranda rights—even though it is a war on foreign soil. In what prior war has it ever been the policy of this nation that someone captured on the field of battle in a foreign and hostile land be treated as an American with Constitutional rights? None. That's why the Geneva Convention wrote up the rules of how those captured in battle are to be treated. Reading Miranda rights to the Taliban is as absurd as arresting a drug dealer and having him tried by a military tribunal.

KSM and four others 9/11 planners were to be tried in the proper venue, a military tribunal, where the rules of evidence are somewhat different. Much of what KSM confessed to was obtained after waterboarding. They would be admitted in a military tribunal. But, because the venue has been changed to a criminal court only blocks from Ground Zero, the rules have changed and ALL of the confessions KSM made are now inadmissable. Confessions given, in other words, will not be used against these men.

Further, because the trial is in the public domain, we risk having top secret material made public in open court, and by so doing, we are putting the lives of CIA agents and the identities of those who helped us to fight the Taliban made public for all to see? How? Because the defense is entitled to "discovery," which means the government prosecutors must make all information they possess, and that has bearing on this trial, avaibale to the defense, which is free to reveal the information in open court.

So the president has ordered Eric Holder, perhaps the worst attorney general this nation has ever seen, to have KSM and his cohorts tried in an open, public forum, but has lesser-known terrorists tried by military tribunals? Either he's schizophrenic, and thus unfit to serve, or Obama is trying to find ways to aid the Muslim cause. Very curious. Why aren't they all tried in the same venue?

That the most dangerous of the terrorists will be tried in criminal courts boggles the mind. If the government's evidence, absent the confessions, is insufficient, KSM and the four being tried with him could walk; set free to plan the next attack. To me, the president's actions come damn close to aiding and abetting the enemy, which constitutes treason.

And the president still hasn't figured out—or he knows but won't say it—that Hasan's Ft. Hood attack was a terrorist attack. The mounting evidence is irrefutable. On his business card, Hasan had SOA (Soldier of Allah) and he yelled the terrorist mantra as he opened fire, "Allahu Akbar!"

In addition, there is a PC clog in the dissemination of news through main stream media. The outlets involved are going out of their way not to offend Muslims. I wrote a post here yesterday about a federal judge nominee who says that the name of Jesus cannot be spoken in his court, but Allah can. Obama nominated him.

I don't do PC. I will say that many very fine people are practicing Muslims. But they have no idea who or what they are worshipping. I think Pat Robertson was right the other day when he pointed out that Islam is no religion of peace. How could it be? Those in the jihad, who carry the Quran with them believe that that holy book tells Muslims that they are to convert everyone to their faith. If they can't, they are to kill them. Hasan said as much at a conference held for doctors, and then launched into a Powerpoint presentation about jihad, not something medical. How much do we have to see before we call a terrorist a terrorist?

In addition, according to Pat Robertson, Allah is NOT the same god as Jehovah of the Jewish and Christian faiths. Allah, according to Robertson, is a desert moon god. That makes sense inasmuch as the God of the Bible would no more tell Christians and Jews to go convert the world or kill those who can't be converted than he would deny His own Son.

So exactly what is going on? Obama orders the masterminds behind 9/11—the biggest fish yet caught—be tried in a civil courtroom where there's a greater chance that they will be acquitted. And at the same time he allows those in a lower echelon to be tried by military tribunals? What's wrong with this picture?

Given Obam's socialist tendancies mixed with his Islamic sympathies, and his absurd unwillingness to make a decision about sending the troops requested to Afghanistan really makes me wonder about this man. It goes way beyond politics. Because he refuses to make a decision on troops, he's exposing the troops already there to growing danger and sharpening threat. What the hell kind of commander in chief waits this long to make a decision? It's been 11 weeks!

Then, he heads to a lonely airfield where the bodies of our soldiers killed in Afghanistan, are carried off the plane in flagged-draped coffins. There he stands and saultes one of the caskets. Do you know how many soliders he so acknowledged? One. It was a pathetic and outrageous photo-op.

So just who is Barak Obama? What god/God does he worship? Is he a Muslim sympathizer? If so, his allegience may just produce what's needed to impeach him.

Be vigilent. At some point he'll make a mistake and our mission will change from stopping his socialist agenda to getting him impeached and convicted.

To have these Barbarians tried in civil court is the greatest affront to the 9/11 familes and this country anyone with an evil mind could conceive.

And to think, I cut the man some slack!

we MUST focus now on the Senate!

We came so close to defeating the House bill, had just THREE (3) more Democrats joined the other 39 brave souls who ignored Pelosi's bullying, and we would have defeated the bill in the House. All we needed was 218 votes and we had 215. Without your efforts, the margin of Pelosi's victory would have been far greater.

Friends, take this first step to start our communications assault on the Senate by doing exactly what Dick Morris says to do here:

http://www.dickmorris.com/blog/2009/10/ ... /#more-659
Please visit this site and follow his instructions to the letter. We need to start immediately before Harry Reid can try for passge on the coattails of the House vote by putting the Senate version to a vote right away.

Make SURE when you follow the steps that you OPPOSE in the strongest terms the use of Reconciliation or the Nuclear Option. If Reid uses it, he can get his bill passed with only 50 votes instead of the usual 60. Doing this will be literally shoving the bill down our throats, so go to:

And make your pens into missiles of discontent. Let 'em have it. NOW is the time to do this.

We must put tremendous pressure on Senate Democrats to break ranks and defeat their version of the bill—and we CAN do it. When we do and the Senate bill fails, things get very interesting.

When the bill in whatever form, comes out of the Conference Committee, if the final bill does not pass in either chamber, then the measure fails. It must be passed by both houses to go to the White House.

If the Senate does pass it's version, the differences between its bill and the House bill are somewhat profound, and trying to hammer out a bill that will pass in both houses will be extremely difficult and painful. That's why we MUST focus now on the Senate.

Comply With Pelosi-Care Or Go To Jail!!


Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.


In response to the JCT letter, Camp said: “This is the ultimate example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail. It is outrageous and it should be stopped immediately.”

Key excerpts from the JCT letter appear below:

“H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]

- – - – - – - – - -

“If the government determines that the taxpayer’s unpaid tax liability results from willful behavior, the following penalties could apply…” [page 2]

- – - – - – - – - -

“Criminal penalties

Prosecution is authorized under the Code for a variety of offenses. Depending on the level of the noncompliance, the following penalties could apply to an individual:

• Section 7203 – misdemeanor willful failure to pay is punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.

• Section 7201 – felony willful evasion is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years.” [page 3]

When confronted with this same issue during its consideration of a similar individual mandate tax, the Senate Finance Committee worked on a bipartisan basis to include language in its bill that shielded Americans from civil and criminal penalties. The Pelosi bill, however, contains no similar language protecting American citizens from civil and criminal tax penalties that could include a $250,000 fine and five years in jail.

“The Senate Finance Committee had the good sense to eliminate the extreme penalty of incarceration. Speaker Pelosi’s decision to leave in the jail time provision is a threat to every family who cannot afford the $15,000 premium her plan creates. Fortunately, Republicans have an alternative that will lower health insurance costs without raising taxes or cutting Medicare,” said Camp.

According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest cost family non-group plan under the Speaker’s bill would cost $15,000 in 2016.
The cheapest it gets........

Geeze...here's a thought...Don't people in prison get pretty darn good healthcare???

YOU LIE - Illegals Allowed in Healthcare Plan


The Associated Press has just reported that, after the Hispanic Caucus confronted Pres. Obama at the White House thursday, the chair of the House Rules Committee indicated she is giving the Caucus what it wants:

** Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) indicated that the House will have to vote on a bill that allows illegal aliens to use the new health care "exchange" and that does not require verification to keep illegal aliens out of the other parts of the proposed new federal health care system. **

The Hispanic Caucus sent leaders to the White House to berate Pres. Obama for his insistence that illegal aliens not be included in any of the proposed health care.

The Hispanic Caucus was especially adamant that illegal immigrants be allowed to use their own money to purchase health coverage in a new government-run "exchange."

He listened to us. We listened to him," said Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y., head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. "We made it very clear that 20 votes in the Hispanic caucus" depend on the language in the House bill.

Currently, there is no prohibition in the House bill against illegal aliens buying insurance in the exchange, but the White House backs such a ban and one exists in the Senate bill.

** "I think that he got our message," Velazquez said. \-- Associated Press **

Basically, Obama and Senate leaders are trying to fulfill Pres. Obama's promise to the American people that no illegal aliens will participate in any part of the new plan.

But the Hispanic Caucus is saying it will vote against any bill that does that. At the moment, Speaker Pelosi has no way to get 218 votes to pass the bill without the Hispanic Caucus. But we must ensure that the bill would be killed by a sufficient number of moderate Democrats who will refuse to vote for the bill unless it has the bans on illegal aliens.

The Representatives drawing their line in the White House sand were Rep. Velazquez (D-N.Y.), Rep. Lucille Royal-Allard (D-Calif.), Rep. Charlie Gonzalez (D-Texas) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.)

This AP story that just came out contains this bombshell:

** House Rules Committee Chairwoman Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., said later that she did not believe there would be any change to the House bill on immigration. - Associated Press **

There is a huge amount of implication in that sentence.

The bill as it now stands has gigantic loopholes that allow illegal aliens to use all parts of a new federal health care program.

If Chairwoman Slaughter is saying the Hispanic Caucus is getting its way and that no changes on immigration are being made, that means NumbersUSA will call on all Members of the U.S. House to vote NO on the rule on the bill, which would keep it from coming to the floor for a vote.

NumbersUSA deals only with immigration. We do not take any kind of position on the health care bill itself.

But if the bill comes to the floor with all these loopholes for illegal aliens, we most certainly are urging all Members to vote NO on the rule.

Hmmmm.... It seems Rep. Joe Wilson was right. "You LIE".... Think ol' Joe will get an apology for the crap he took after making that obviously correct observation? I doubt it. Don't worry Joe, I got yer six. Folks like you, who have the brass cajones to tell it like it is will be remembered when these crooks in DC are finally brought to justice...

I always said that this whole healthcare push has been ALL about dealing with the illegals and who pays the bill for them, and not about reducing the costs to the American Citizens....someone has to pay their bill so it is coming out of the pocket of your family...nice. Oh, and that part of "YOU LIE"....who should be doing the apologizing now.

New Seal for 5th Army North declares North American Union

INCLUDES IMAGE OF ISLAMIC TOWER
by John Charlton

(Nov. 2, 2009) — You can’t get more explicit about your agenda than the art you use to advance it. And a case in point is the new insignia of the 5th Army North, a combat unit formed to assist in civil defense in times of National Emergencies, within the United States.


The ony problem is that the logo has an image of the American Eagle, taken from the President’s crest, superimposed upon the Continent of North America. With the continent surrounded with an ocean in the colors of the United Nations peacekeepers.

To add artistic insult to symbolic injury, at the heart of the Eagle is a Red Card, with what appears to be the silhouette of an Islamic Tower!

This insignia was found on 2 mobile command units, recently acquired by the 5th Army North, stationed at Ft. Sam Houston.

The imagery speaks for itself: a North American Union task force for integration. Biographies of commanders at the U.S. 5th Army north are in English, French, and Spanish. They want the entire Continent to know they are ready for them!

If there was every any question that the top Brass are in favor of the North American Union: these insignia indicate that they have already accepted the idea and are implementing it. This might be the payback for supporting the Obama regime: top Brass get military power over entire continent!

It is not known what the Ambassadors of Canada and Mexico would think, seeing the American Eagle superimposed over their own nations.

From the NORTHCOM website: (logo on this site is very different)

“U.S. Army North, the Army component of U.S. Northern Command, Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., organized the event as part of its mission to support civil authorities during disaster.

The exercise is designed to fully coordinate the support that active military forces could be asked to provide states and the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the event of a major hurricane, said Maj. Gen. John Basilica, who commands U.S. Army North’s Operational Command Post 1.”

In other words, an in-your-face violation of "Posse Comitatus".

Today In The News!

Here it is Monday morning, Nov 2nd....a few days before the montrous Health Care bill is to voted upon and this is what is happening....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPXTZ0ZVNUE

This administration is the most thin skinned and anti American people administration I have ever witnessed. We have a right to petition. Write or call your Senator and Congressman and tell them about you rights being violated. 202 -224 -3121

This weekend these activists are celebrating and preparing for the battle ahead. Here is an excerpt from the latest Obama team message:



“One year ago today, we were in the homestretch of the Obama for America campaign. I had been organizing on the ground in Ohio for months, with hundreds of incredible -- and exhausted -- staff, and thousands and thousands of amazing volunteers.

We were hopeful, but we didn't take anything for granted. As we watched the victorious results of your hard work come in -- state-by-state, county-by-county, precinct-by-precinct -- we were completely elated. I'm sure you felt the same way.

But that work wasn't finished, and it still isn't. That night, President-Elect Obama told us that the election victory was only the beginning of the change we all sought -- and today, through Organizing for America, we're fighting just as hard to make health insurance reform a reality, this year.”



As you can see from the message, these activists are focused on passing Obamacare. They believe that once their bill is passed, taking over 20 percent of the US economy, then weak willed Republicans won’t repeal it even if they win a majority in the US Congress next year.

It is more important than ever that we continue to focus on defeating this dangerous legislation.Finally, the highlight of the Sunday news shows was the appearance of Rush Limbaugh on FOXNEWS Sunday with Chris Wallace. If you haven’t watched the video, you are missing a treat. Rush slammed Obama calling him “immature,” "narcissistic," and "inexperienced," and a “radical leader.” Watch it here: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2009/11/01/limbaugh_obama_is_a_threat_to_liberty.html

“He’s a child. I think he’s got a five minute career,” Limbaugh surmised.

I agree with what Rush said over the weekend...that every morning we wake up to a new battle on some front and it is like a never ending war! Have a great day all you patriots. We fight on. The keystroke is mightier than the sword.


"When I was young, my father used to say that some day this country would have two (2) Classes 'Jailers and Prisoners'. I did not understand what he meant then, but I sure do now."

Think about this....

"When the bill comes before congress to give illegal aliens voting rights, and it passes, legal voters votes will be null and void. If they can do it with HC, they can cram Amnesty thtough too. What then ?? I also think that there will be some concoction fabricated down the road to enable the left to declare Martial law and stop all future Elections.. what then ???"

"Riddle me this...

Why is it that if you cross the North Korean border illegally you get thrown into prison and get 12 years of hard labor?

If you cross the Iranian border while out supposedly leisurely hiking in the hills, you get arrested and imprisoned.

But if you cross the U.S. border illegally:

You get a drivers license, a Social Security card, fickin'Food Stamps, Welfare, Free health Care and Free Education!"

Fall Of The Republic

Help us make Fall Of The Republic go viral and in doing do dismantle the contrived perception that only by surrendering to nightmare levels of regulation and centralized control bossed by an ultra-powerful architecture of global governance will we avoid another great depression.
Fall Of The Republic has the potential to outstrip even The Obama Deception in reaching millions more people, and early indications just over a week after the film was released are that this indeed happening. The You Tube version below already has over 300,000 views and this is just one of thousands of different versions that are floating around the web.

Fall Of The Republic will be devastating for the globalists and their agenda to impose a new world economic order and the cap and trade scam, but only if you play your part in getting this information out to the world! The film is already unlocking minds on a massive scale and smashing the phony left-right paradigm.

We have chosen to publicize and encourage circulation of the following version because it is encoded in the highest possible quality that You Tube allows and the full video is all in one place, rather than being broken up into different chunks.

Please grab the following link and spread it to the four corners of the Internet. In allegorical terms, this simple URL represents a devastating virus that can infect the mainframe operating system of the new world order agenda – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VebOTc-7shU – Fall Of The Republic in full is embedded below.
