What is a Progressive? The Enemy Within

& Why they should scare you!

The Progressive Movement goes against everything America stands for: it created progressive income tax, prohibition, the Federal Reserve, the U.N., every single government agency – from the Department of the Interior to the FDA – these were all progressive ideas. Progressives believe in the philosophy that life is just too complex for the common people to understand or deal with so they should back off and let the government solve the problems. Kind of reminds you of the town hall meetings on Healthcare Reform, doesn’t it!
And another thing to think about...just how could they stand there and lie when they took their oath of office to uphold the Constitution?

Here is the real problem – the more power and control the government gets, the more power and control it wants. The founding fathers recognized this, which is why there is a separation of powers built into our Constitution. It was intentionally designed this way to provide checks and balances to control the speed of change.

Progressives believe in social re-engineering. They believe that they can improve the world by changing the structure of society and the roles of the people in it. Unfortunately, what usually starts with good intentions eventually goes awry. The governments of Chavez and Castro have not created a better life for all. What they did create was equality – in poverty for the masses and wealth for the elite! I defy you to find a “regular person” in a truly “progressive/socialist” society who is happy with their individual freedom, their quality of life and their ability to pursue their dreams. Americans are spoiled – we take these things for granted. There is no free lunch, all entitlements come at a cost. What are you willing to give up, to have your “security” provided by the federal government. I want more from my life than …work, eat, sleep…die!

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” - Winston Churchill

“The assumption that spending more of the taxpayer’s money will make things better has survived all kinds of evidence that it has made things worse.” – Thomas Sowell

Open your eyes America, the Constitution and the American way of life are under attack! You must fight back, the threat is real. There are “progressives” in our government who want to “fundamentally transform America”. This transformation is underway. Will you help stop it?

So who are today’s Progressives and how do they operate within the Democratic Party?

Within the House of Representatives the Democrats have a group called the Progressive Caucus.

“The Progressive Caucus is an organization of Members of Congress founded in 1991 by newly-elected House Representative Bernie Sanders (Independent-Vermont), who is a self-described socialist.”

Window of Transparency Summit

The point of todays Healthcare summit was to alter the political opinion and discourse the people have for the way that Obama bullshitted about transparency (hence c-span) and for letting Dems steamrole the whole process without any input from Republicans (hence his invite of bipartisanship). On his walk across the street to the meeting, Obama said he was looking forward to 'listening', but that was far from his objective. The invited party was only given 1/3 of the time to make their points.

When the whole day was done, Obama gave us all what was his real goal. In the last 3 minutes, he said that if common ground could not be found in 4-6 weeks, he then would counsel with Democrats to see which route to take to pass comprehensive — not limited and incremental — legislation. He implied use of the reconciliation process.
If a Democrats-only strategy then failed, Obama said, it would be left to voters to make their judgment in November.

Wow...forget what the American citizen wants..right? Anyone can lead a meeting, but that does not mean you have presidential leadership skills. Made clear when he was demissive of John McCain and occasionally combative and squirmish whenever his VP Biden spoke. But at least John McCain had the courage to bring the concerns and disgust of the American people into that meeting so people who are disgusted with Obamna’s lies can have a voice and be heard.

I'll end this with the Best comment of the day......

Paul Ryan to Obama: You realize your bill is a fiscal disaster, right?

When is Grandfathering a rip off?

Remember this?

“If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period,” he declared in a speech to the American Medical Association last June. “No one will take it away, no matter what.”

While a number of provisions in the existing House and Senate health care bills would undermine that pledge, the proposal Obama unveiled Monday takes a sledgehammer to it.

The Senate bill has a measure to protect so-called “grandfathered plans,” which would allow policy holders to maintain coverage in plans that may not abide by all of the requirements imposed on new individual plans offered on the government-run exchanges.

But Obama’s new proposal changes all of that. Here’s how the White House explains the new provisions:

The Senate bill includes a “grandfather” policy that allows people who like their current coverage, to keep it. The President’s Proposal adds certain important consumer protections to these “grandfathered” plans. Within months of legislation being enacted, it requires plans to cover adult dependents up to age 26, prohibits rescissions, mandates that plans have a stronger appeals process, and requires State insurance authorities to conduct annual rate review, backed up by the oversight of the HHS Secretary. When the exchanges begin in 2014, the President’s Proposal adds new protections that prohibit all annual and lifetime limits, ban pre-existing condition exclusions, and prohibit discrimination in favor of highly compensated individuals. Beginning in 2018, the President’s Proposal requires “grandfathered” plans to cover proven preventive services with no cost sharing.

YADA, YaDa, yaDAH....

All of the new requirements proposed by Obama would increase premiums, and by definition, alter the composition of those insurance plans. The White House would argue that it is changing the policies for the better.

But the entire point of having “grandfathered plans” was to protect a class of policies from changes imposed by the new legislation. Put another way, the provision to allow people to keep their “grandfathered plans” is rendered meaningless when the federal government is dictating what is in them.

LOOKING forward to CSpan's coverage of the Obama dog and pony show. The will of the people has been made positively clear for the last year, so we will see where that gets us....and who is on board to say NO to his face and shatter his wet dream. Should be good watchin'!

CPAC - Marco Rubio -

“…now that I come to think of it, the blizzard may be the best thing to happen to the American economy in twelve months.”

Marco Rubio shines a new youthful light on future in politics!! Great Speech!!!

I have added my name to the Mount Vernon Statement at

I just signed The Contract With America. Join the Tea Party Patriots and commit to support their Agenda and Avocate on behalf of individual liberty, limited government and economic freedom

Just got word that both Newt Gingrich and Glenn Beck's speeches at CPAC will be carried live on C-SPAN on Saturday.

Government - Get out of the Jobs Market

Arianna Huffington: A person I detest almost as much as Nancy Pelosi, wrote this today and I felt It was worth a show here on this blog and worth discussing.

"" A stunning new study found that while the unemployment rate among those making over $150,000 was only 3 percent, the rate for those in the bottom 10 percent of income was a staggering 31 percent. Does anyone believe that we would be facing the same lack of urgency about the jobs crisis in Washington if it were the unemployment rate among the top 10 percent that was 31 percent? If one-third of television news producers, pundits, bankers, and lobbyists were unemployed, would the measures being proposed by the White House and Congress still be as pathetic as the ones we're seeing now? Of course not -- the sense of national emergency would be so great you'd practically be hearing air raid sirens howling. Instead we get baby steps, bipartisanship, and band-aids.

It's unclear. Again and again, the administration has had the opportunity to show that it gets what's happening outside the fully employed sectors of Wall Street and Washington. And again and again, it comes up short.
It's time for something bold. Unfortunately, we've now seen enough of President Obama to know that boldness isn't exactly his forte. Bold rhetoric at times, sure, but not bold action. His natural caution and incremental approach would be well-suited to many times -- but this is not one of them. The jobs crisis is simply too large and the suffering too great. Obama needs to put aside the clichés about changing how Washington works and change the way he works.

The chasm America has fallen into cannot be crossed with bipartisan baby steps. The president needs to grab Congressional Democrats by the hand... and leap. How Obama responds to this crisis will not only define his presidency, but the long-term future of our nation. ""

Here's what I think.... The jest of the article makes sense and I can agree that if the tables were turned, those top 10% would have a louder bark, but seriously, if the top 10% were 31% umemployed we would be in Full Meltdown already. The bottom 10% of income earners pay NO TAXES!!

And notice the group of people she speaks of in her example, "one-third of television news producers, pundits, bankers, and lobbyists". She obviously circulates in a very narrow group of cronies or just lives in a small world and can't come up with a real set of top 10% that are Producers and not a part of the service force. And I hope she is included in the third that becomes unemployed....sooner than later.

But the biggest part of this article that is missed if you aren't really listening is that she speaks of Bipartisanship as if it is a BAD thing... The president needs to grab Congressional Democrats by the hand... and leap. Bypass the system of balanced debate and doing whatever an inexperienced president wants, then demand that all democrats follow lock step. What she is calling for is another MOVE just like the hurry-up stimulus-gotta doit in 24 hours or else. Big steps! She says, "put aside the clichés about changing how Washington works" sounds alot like throwing out the constitution and doing what is essentially treasonous in the name of hurry up and save us!

Scary huh? And this was just a simple article that sounded pretty good and on the right track until you really 'think' and then it just becomes another propaganda type story to cover the progressive agenda of overstepping to get things done one way when the true answer to unemployment and jobgrowth is for government to get out of the way, eliminate all tax burdens, restrictions and mandates that cripple small and large businesses and manufacturers for the risk they are willing to take to provide good paying jobs at whatever price they are willing to pay. You don't need wallstreet to give shares to an employee that helps build a successful business. LESS from government means job rates will come back and so will those companies that moved to foreign countries.

Social Security..Worth Fighting For???

For years, we’ve been hearing that the Social Security Trust Fund would run out of money. The recent economic recession only worsened the outlook for Social Security Insurance.

According to current projections by the trustees responsible for the Social Security Trust Fund, the Social Security program will begin to pay out more benefits than in collects in taxes beginning in the year 2016. And by 2037, the Social Security Trust Fund will be insolvent, and will be unable to pay full benefits to retirees.

( I feel it will happen much sooner than 2016, based on the unemployment levels, just who are they kidding? The biggest issue I have is if they are not going to have funds at any given point and they know it, just how is it not Fraudulent to be mandatory and withheld from every paycheck? Why haven't the young adults who will never see any payout or middleaged adults who have paid in for years, not making this a BIGGER issue than Healthcare. Our current Heathcare is the best in the world, but our Social Security is BROKEN, fix that first! If Congress is hellbent on looking busy before the economy crunches, this would bear better reviews in the press before elections!)

There are no easy solutions to the Social Security Insurance crisis. One thing is clear, however. Each year that goes by without taking action to solve the problem will only make the solution more painful when the time comes.

What's NOT in the News?..until now?

There's alot in the news to decipher these days, don't you agree?
Mainstreet Media is busy with hollywood news, crime reports and junk.
MSM never gets to the political point unless it is pointing blame.
Fox is fair and balanced willing to tell the truth on issues omitted by the others, but I think they are tiring of being the bearer of bad news all the time.

Glenn Beck is the guy out there on the edge willing to show the boring numbers and put them in to perspective and to give the history lessons that go with them. He's like the favorite history teacher who keeps the class learning with humor, remember those teachers?

What's NOT in the News?
2 days last week Beck had shows that finally 'someone' in media is brave enough to do and that is to address meltdown or collapse of the dollar and what people need to be doing to just get their head wrapped around it.

These are on Youtube and the shows are on 4to5 segments w/no commercials, so just click down through them.

Time to Take Care of Your OWN Money!

A bill to move New Mexico's money out of big national banks

and into local banks and credit unions has some serious legs in the state's legislature. The bill passed the New Mexico House of Representatives unanimously on Monday, and it already is scheduled for a hearing on Wednesday in the Senate.

The idea is that more liquidity in local banks translates into more loans to local businesses and a stronger local economy.
They got the idea for the legislation directly from the Move Your Money campaign, which encourages individuals to withdraw their deposits from "Too Big To Fail" banks in favor of local banks.

Imagine that!

I think the bigger message here is that if people at the State level are doing it...why wouldn't YOU???

Now here's a thought....why wouldn't you want to move 95% of your cash to your pocket, then home to a very safe place???
Think for a minute. Cash sitting in the bank drawing zippo for interest, then suddenly there's a run on the bank. Are you going to get there before the doors are closed? Are you going to be able to cash out, so to speak. With cash on hand, you will be able to get to the grocery and load up before the shelves are bare or before the looting and riots begin. Do you see where I am taking this conversation?

This is my warning to you 80% of the people who are not Preppers. Prepare now. The best investment you can make with that money is in food. If you listen to the news and sifer though the bs, do 3rd grade math, you can only come to one conclusion. Things are not going to get easier in life no matter how much you work or how secure you think your job is. Collapse of the Economy, Meltdown, Death of the Dollar, these are just names given of what will happen in society and is out of your control. But your 'family' is your world. Wouldn't the best investment for the future be to make sure you did everything you could to get ready for it?

When 'GREEN' just isn't funny!

A disturbing Super Bowl humor, but sure drives the point of the intentions of the 'Eco-Extremists". This is a window into their perfect world thinking.

My commercial would show the financial rape of the economy these treehugging extremists inflict on People and their wallets.

I would show dust bowl conditions they created in the most fertile productive land in Calif because of a fish. I would show the timber industry cranking out lumber that now costs you triple the sq ft to build a home that also has to be 'green' and because additional housing regulations imposed, keeps you from ever moving out of your old house. I would show how stimulus tax dollars used to build roads with bridges for turtles while existing bridges in the USA crumble. I would show how every infrastructure project takes years to become 'shovel ready' due to impact studies. How 'permits' are the current police that stunt any innovation and creative frugalism. I would show how 'credit bureaus' have become the economy police with more control than your banks. I would show the nutrition police, education police, communication police,and the list goes on.

The green police are not little men with clipboards, ticket pads or handcuffs.....the satire of this commercial is the police are actually all the Regulations and Laws imposed with so-called good intentions that have crippled the American Dream.

Most assume the Green Police are focused on ‘protecting and conserving the Earth’ and are now a 'part of modern life' and I say,
"Real Americans are not pro-dirty water. We don't like pollution. Real conservatives would rather recycle than throw things away needlessly. We love a clean environment, too. But those of us who still value liberty and freedom are wary because radical environmentalists appear to embrace the "green police" concept and are sucking the 'Life' out of those humans that inhabit this earth....they suck the life out of true Americanism.

Just who in Washington is holding back on Economic Recovery?

SPECIAL INTERESTS...and there's a bunch of them!

We have the power to tap vast shale gas reserves that lie under our feet through large swaths of America, but special interest groups aligned with the Democratic Party are trying to frustrate plans to bring this cheap, plentiful, and clean energy to the surface.
We are the Saudi Arabia of shale gas. The potential is enormous. Already, landowners and states have benefited from royalty payments. Hard-hit communities are experiencing an economic revival. Small business, people looking for jobs, community centers, fire departments, and schools have all been beneficiaries.

More importantly, Americans have all benefited from low natural gas prices because of the bonanza of shale gas that has just begun to come our way. The talk of the need to build giant, expensive liquefied natural gas ports has ended. Threats of a natural gas cartel formed by our adversaries are just so much gaseous talk. Our national security has been bolstered (if Europe taps their own substantial shale gas reserves, the threats from Iran, Russia, and Algeria will be empty). Even the Russians are fretting about our fracking, expressing concern that this revolutionary development will weaken their own power. There is so much shale gas waiting to be tapped that the dream of natural gas-powered vehicles can very well reach fruition.

Who could possibly want to throw a wrench into these bright prospects?
Low shale gas prices create a problem for the renewable energy industry and for the promoters of solar, bio-fuels, and wind power.

These alternative energy sources all have problems associated with them. They are vastly more expensive than gas. For example, generating a megawatt-hour of electricity using natural gas costs $80; with wind it would cost $142, and solar would cost $396. Wind power is intermittent, interferes with birds, and is terribly inefficient; ironically, wind farms often must be backed up with natural gas-powered plants. Solar farms have a huge footprint and must be located in sunny areas; huge transmission lines trigger the NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) reflex. Ethanol, created by refining corn, has caused a spike in food prices, may require more energy to produce than it creates, and depletes aquifers (corn is a thirsty crop).

Even nuclear power, recently touted by Barack Obama as a way to bolster his political prospects, has no chance of meeting our energy needs. Even if any plants are able to navigate through all the obstacles that have prevented the building of any new nukes for decades, they will take additional decades to go online -- if ever -- and will merely replace the old nuclear power plants being decommissioned.

The technology to meet our energy demands is just not there; but for shale gas production, the technology is ready to go and being used today.

Unlike shale gas that fills the coffers of communities and state governments, all those renewable ventures consume our tax dollars. They could not survive on their own merits. They get billions in grants, subsidies, and tax breaks. The clean-energy industry is among the biggest winners among stimulus money recipients. The windfall? Over thirty billion dollars (and counting), including millions flowing to a geothermal-drilling technology company that has its address at an empty office. Ethanol and bio-fuels get subsidies that, measured on a per-unit-of-energy basis, are 190 times any subsidies given to oil and gas, and the subsidies given to the former are on the way up, while the latter are on the way down. California force-feeds utilities renewable electricity at a price five times more than the current price of electricity.

Democrats pass mandates requiring that a percentage of power be generated by renewable sources, and they force utility companies to buy power from renewable producers at vastly inflated prices. Green jobs are absurdly expensive to generate; studies have shown that for every "green job" created by artificial subsidies, more than two jobs are lost in the real world. Most such green jobs are temporary. Barack Obama's dream to have them filled with felons reveals an agenda at work that has little to do with energy. Green jobs are just another government boondoggle.

Meanwhile, in the real world, Americans who hold acreage in the vast lands above shale gas fields are enjoying having their retirement needs met and their dreams of affording college for their kids and grandchildren fulfilled. Many of them are elderly farmers and are otherwise hard-hit. Should their dreams be denied so that well-connected venture capitalists and their political pals can become enriched with taxpayer dollars?

The federal government, under Barack Obama and his Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, is busy clamping down on leasing of lands with shale gas potential, toughening drilling rules, and imposing a bevy of taxes that will be recycled into subsidies and grants to their partners in the "renewable energy" racket. While he is turning off homegrown energy, Obama is helping China develop its own shale gas potential with technology developed by the American energy companies he wants to hinder.

Perhaps Barack Obama really is a true believer in climate change (despite the cascade of news stories showing it to be snake oil). Maybe we can nickname him President Moonbeam. Perhaps he just wants to punish Big Oil and Gas, many of whom are headquartered in that red state of Texas. Or perhaps there is an ulterior motive. When campaign time comes, the tax dollars gifted to the executives and venture capitalists behind these endeavors will be recycled back into the Democrats' campaign coffers -- one recycling program that does work all too well. Barack Obama was the top recipient of campaign funds from both alternative energy and environmentalists, and received two million dollars from the agribusiness sector (that includes ethanol producers) during his presidential run.

Robbing Peter to pay off Paul is not a path to prosperity.

Who pays the price for this obstructionism? America does. We have the ability to remake the energy profile of our nation, keep our homes warm, our factories buzzing, and our cars fueled up -- all with clean energy liberated from the rocks beneath our feet. All with our own technology. But not if the enemies of cheap natural gas have their way.

So, are you wondering who stands in the way or who the people arwho stand to fill their pockets? and.... Why Man-made climate change is not happening around the world, but it is happening in Washington? Read Ed Lasky's article @ ...

When history is discussed in the future, I'm sure the USA will be impossible to comprehend. By not developing our own energy supplies, we are setting ourselves up for economic disaster and possibly worse. Why are we trading boatloads of money for boatloads of oil? We could develop a cheap and reliable infrastructure keeping our wealth and building a stronger economy. The things that could be accomplished by America are easy to imagine. What will we do if we find ourselves cut off from the global sources? I think someone intends for us to find out, but then it will be too late.

TWEETs for the WEEK!

Obama is to economy what Lorena Bobbitt is to urology

Libs don't let friends make up their own minds. Conservative don't let friends be Libs or Moderates for that matter

Obama tells Dems he didn't become President for the fame or the title. So what was it? The free teleprompters

Obama told Senate Dems to speak directly to regular Americans. Um... problem isn't lack of talking, it's excess of spending

I resent Mr 0bama for telling me that only his values and not mine, his are the only true American values

Obama blunder: Job numbers fiction & everyone knows it. Any credibility he still had is gone now. DOW reflects disbelief.

Early draft of Constitution discovered in PA. Bad news for Obama - this version doesn't have the words "health care", either

Obama's offering a payroll tax cut, but only for small business. Ok, fair's fair. We pay taxes, but only for small government.

If Obama sees his shadow today, it means 6 more weeks before admitting that America doesn't want his health care bill.

How much $ have we saved due to todays snow storm in DC. Isn't global warming a wonderful thing?

Why You’ve Never Heard of the Great Depression of 1920

This will Melt your brain...great history lesson, but my god, I wish Glenn Beck would have this guy on with the chalk board and all, to give us a condensed version. Try to get through this and reaffirm that what we have been saying is the solution and that there has been a time in the past that will show us a remedy to this financial meltdown we are going through.
I especially liked the last 3 minutes in his closing where he says what WE can do... and he reassures the rational of why I have this blog!

Obama Retirement Trap - Mandatory IRAs

Mandatory IRAs just proposed by Obama Administration on 1/25/10 is the 1st step in stealth nationalization & forced investment of our retirement benefits to support the treasury debt market!

The largest source of liquid private wealth remaining in the United States is the $15 trillion in private retirement funds. The ultimate ownership, control and future of these funds has already been compromised and exchanged for the favorable tax treatment of private retirement plans. Congress writes the laws, so they can tax, penalize, hold your funds hostage and, although they'd never use the word "confiscate," use your assets at their discretion.

The retirement trap I'm writing about is only a proposal at the present time and since it may well begin in the latter years of the Obama Administration, assuming the Democrats can somehow maintain their majorities in Congress, I'm calling it the "Obama Retirement Trap." But make no mistake, the government need for current revenue and their frenzied search for liquidity to monetize their debt obligations is an unspoken quest of both political parties. The establishments of both political parties will do whatever it takes to stay in power, including the raiding and pillaging of your retirement funds.

I fear that today the control, nationalization and ultimate confiscation of trillions in private US retirement plan assets is on the horizon. Rick Santelli alluded to the possible nationalization and forced investment into treasuries on CNBC as recently as January 8, 2010. There was also similar coverage on Bloomberg and Business Week.

His goal in writing this report is to make you aware of the threat with enough time to take some recommended actions to protect your retirement wealth, and thereby minimizing the Washington threat and their future confiscation efforts.
