Why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America

Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America's future. He is the best thing ever.

Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America's resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

That's why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America.

Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

Average Americans who have quietly gone about their lives, earning a paycheck, contributing to their favorite charities, going to high school football games on Friday night, spending their weekends at the beach or on hunting trips — they've gotten off the fence. They've woken up. There is a level of political activism in this country that we haven't seen since the American Revolution, and Barack Obama has been the catalyst that has sparked a restructuring of the American political and social consciousness.

Think of the crap we've slowly learned to tolerate over the past 50 years as liberalism sought to re-structure the America that was the symbol of freedom and liberty to all the people of the world. Immigration laws were ignored on the basis of compassion. Welfare policies encouraged irresponsibility, the fracturing of families, and a cycle of generations of dependency. Debt was regarded as a tonic to lubricate the economy. Our children left school having been taught that they are exceptional and special, while great numbers of them cannot perform basic functions of mathematics and literacy. Legislators decided that people could not be trusted to defend their own homes, and stripped citizens of their rights to own firearms. Productive members of society have been penalized with a heavy burden of taxes in order to support legions of do-nothings who loll around, reveling in their addictions, obesity, indolence, ignorance and “disabilities.” Criminals have been arrested and re-arrested, coddled and set free to pillage the citizenry yet again. Lawyers routinely extort fortunes from doctors, contractors and business people with dubious torts. (Enviro Libs took treehugging to a whole new level by choosing unedible fish over people, food and farmers, while Global Warming was found out as the science fraud that it is, sorry,editorial liberty).

We slowly learned to tolerate these outrages, shaking our heads in disbelief, and we went on with our lives.

But Barack Obama has ripped the lid off a seething cauldron of dissatisfaction and unrest.

In the time of Barack Obama, Black Panther members stand outside polling places in black commando uniforms, slapping truncheons into their palms. ACORN — a taxpayer-supported organization — is given a role in taking the census, even after its members were caught on tape offering advice to set up child prostitution rings. A former Communist is given a paid government position in the White House as an advisor to the president. Auto companies are taken over by the government, and the auto workers' union — whose contracts are completely insupportable in any economic sense — is rewarded with a stake in the company. Government bails out Wall Street investment bankers and insurance companies, who pay their executives outrageous bonuses as thanks for the public support. Terrorists are read their Miranda rights and given free lawyers. And, despite overwhelming public disapproval, Barack Obama has pushed forward with a health care plan that would re-structure one-sixth of the American economy.

I don't know about you, but the other day I was at the courthouse doing some business, and I stepped into the court clerk's office and changed my voter affiliation from “Independent” to “Republican.” I am under no illusion that the Republican party is perfect, but at least they're starting to awaken to the fact that we cannot sustain massive levels of debt; we cannot afford to hand out billions of dollars in corporate subsidies; we have to somehow trim our massive entitlement programs; we can no longer be the world's policeman and dole out billions in aid to countries whose citizens seek to harm us.

Literally millions of Americans have had enough. They're organizing, they're studying the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, they're reading history and case law, they're showing up at rallies and meetings, and a slew of conservative candidates are throwing their hats into the ring. Is there a revolution brewing? Yes, in the sense that there is a keen awareness that our priorities and sensibilities must be radically re-structured. Will it be a violent revolution? No. It will be done through the interpretation of the original document that has guided us for 220 years — the Constitution. Just as the pendulum swung to embrace political correctness and liberalism, there will be a backlash, a complete repudiation of a hundred years of nonsense. A hundred years from now, history will perceive the year 2010 as the time when America got back on the right track. And for that, we can thank Barack Hussein Obama.

CIVILITY Now.....Disobedience Later by Reform

Well intentioned Americans now press for the November elections in hopes of cleaning house.

Do not underestimate the evil behind the events unfolding in America. The battle for America's future is not without the risk of the opposition doing whatever it takes for the power behind the Obama agenda to REMAIN IN POWER.

Martial Law if imposed would change the rules of the game for all Americans and halt November elections leaving current runaway government agendas unstoppable.

There are people on both sides of American issues who are capable of crossing a line which could affect American liberty.

As determined as President Obama and others are to push through their agendas, not underestimate the desire and capability to subdue the nation. They are looking for any excuse... do not give in to it!

'...make no mistake... there are going to be attempts by the opposition to incite civil unrest for reasons later discussed in this post. Do not assume there are NOT plants in the crowds.'

Already, there are racial and anti-gay slurs being thrown around. How does anyone know they are not from Acorn, Communists, Jihad, or Nazi groups bent on destroying America?

A real or perceived (staged) national emergency to justify an imposition of Martial law , would change the ball game indefinitely. If imposed by any justification before November 2010 an Executive Order by America's 'Commander in Chief' would change the rules of the game for all Americans and halt November elections leaving current runaway government agendas unstoppable.

Given the patterns and practices by Democrats over many months to gain a victory for 'Health Care Reform' ...anything is possible.

Don't try and be a gladiator .. resist blowing your cool and give anyone a reason that could hurt us all.

TAXES, More Taxes and Trickle up Poverty

...the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy, and the middle income class is left behind. Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America.

But don't you dare call it socialism!

President Obama campaigned on the promise that any tax increases proposed by his Administration would be imposed only on the highest five percent of the population and that taxes for the rest of the people would not go up by a dime. His cutoff point is often said to be $250,000 per annum....later changed to $200,000.

Our annual deficit, now running close to $2 trillion, it's obvious that annual income tax collections are not sufficient to support the level of government we have, nor the debt service on the accumulated debt, which we have already incurred.

So what can we do? Here's the Obama solution. We can service our debt and provide government services either by rolling over and expanding the nation’s debt, print new money, thereby cheapening our currency and risking massive inflation, and find more and more sources to tax, thereby taking more money from the private sector. Sadly, cutting spending is not part of the solution. Congress recently passed a program into law, which requires that each new expenditure be accompanied by a corresponding expenditure cut or a new source of revenue. A step in the right direction, you might think. Not more than three weeks later, however, they passed an $80 billion spending bill and waived the pay-as-you-go requirement.

We all know, tax increases reduce incentives, drive business to cut costs or move outside the United States and reduce research and development expenses and innovative risk taking.
This country evolved from a standing start in the 18th century with a puny population, to an international economic engine, which lifted millions of people worldwide out of poverty as a result of private effort, private capital and private risk taking. We created industry after industry and millions of jobs, yet the 'left' focuses on the successes of the few and those they employ. They get targeted to share their wealth with everyone. Where's the Incentive?
Risk + Success = Tax More.

Then there's the estate tax (or as conservatives call it “the death tax”). Prior to the Bush tax cuts the government taxed (confiscated some might say) 55 percent of a decedent’s taxable estate over $1 million. Under the Bush program the estate tax was to be phased out until there was no such tax in 2010 … only to spring back to life, just like the Bush income tax cuts, in 2011 at the 2001 rate. Everyone believed a compromise would be reached by Congress, not only to prevent the expiration of the tax in 2010, but also to have a lower rate and a higher exemption amount thereafter. Since Congress rarely misses an opportunity to be irresponsible, that hasn’t happened. This clumsy handling of tax policy regarding residual wealth, the net of all taxes paid during someone’s working life, has cost the public billions of dollars in legal fees trying to adjust wills, trusts and marital deductions to this unresolved matter.

Summary: After having one’s income taxed at rates up to 39.6 percent, paying Social Security tax of 6.2% if you are an employee (or 12.4% if you are self employed) on the first $106,800 of earnings, state income taxes of up to 12 percent in some states, Medicare tax of 1.45 percent on total taxable income (2.9% if you are self employed going up to 3.8% on ALL income, including interest, dividends and capital gains, which the left refers to as “unearned income,” under Obamacare), sales taxes up to ten percent in some cities and states, the government under this most hideous of taxes would take 55% of anything you might have left over, from the children or grandchildren.

Like the Picture so far?

Essentially the United States is heading toward what might be called a tipping point. The more we have a society where substantial numbers of people pay no taxes (now close to 40%), the more we create a voting bloc of citizens who will inevitably support new programs for which they don’t have to pay. Business people have a term for this. It is called having “skin in the game” another way of saying that we all need to give up something of value. Are you a morally bad person if you do not want to shoulder an ever-increasing government appetite to provide more and more benefits to a segment of the population who view these benefits as if they are birthrights?

Should we be a nation that looks to government to provide more and more of what people need or desire OR are we Americans that depend on our personal efforts and family support systems and our own labor and intelligence. THAT is the question. What the current adninistration is hellbent on doing is growing the government to the point that we will not recognize our country that immigrants once declared, that in America your work is your reward and you have the freedom to be anything you want to be.
Instead, Obamanomics = Trickle up poverty.

We have never seen anything as CORRUPT as this Healthcare Reform Bill. Never in History, maybe that's the history Obama is talking about...

Can't wait to vote them out?

Revenge? Think again.

Why? Word is that Immigration "Reform" is the Obama Administration's next goal, and that they intend on granting Amnesty to the illegals living here now. Estimates put that number at about 15-30 million people. It's easy to assume that 90% of them would instantly become life-long loyal Democrat voters...and why wouldn't they?

I said this back last year after Nancy met with all the illegals and trashed the US laws being enforced. Remember? ( - Ratcheting up her 'open borders' rhetoric a notch, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told an Illegals rally in San Francisco that enforcement of immigration laws was "un-American." She also referred to illegal aliens as "very, very patriotic." (She should have been brought up on treason back then.)

Once they've been given US citizenship and US Health Care by a Democrat, any massive "backlash" against the Democrats that appears to be developing right now, will really only end up being countered by the massive increase in the total number of loyal Democrat voters that Amnesty will provide.

I hope I'm wrong. If Amnesty would mean they could instantly register to vote for the November 2010 elections, (2012 almost certainly/post Census), we will see our America handed to Progressives on a platter.

To me, it looks like this is the reason that the Democrats feel absolutely 'no need' to listen to the wishes of the majority of the electorate right now.
Simply put; they are not legislating for this current electorate. They are legislating for the electorate-to-come, the one that will exist after Amnesty is granted to 15-30 million new Democrat voters. It's why Nancy and BO aren't worried.

Keep in mind that Obama's victory over McCain was a clear and decisive one. He won 52% to 46%. But the margin was still less than 10 million total votes (69.5 to 59.9 million). With 15-30 million new loyal Democrat voters, it's quite possible that we won't see a GOP majority or conservative President for a very long time, despite the current, wide-spread, and growing surge/anger against the Democrats.

This is very deliberate. And the sequence of Obama's major Agenda items was designed to bring this mega-majority about.

* The Stimulus bill had to be first, because it feathers the financial bed for Democrats' re-election campaigns.
* Then Health Care had to be next, because if they granted Amnesty first, then the Health Care proposal would appear much more expensive than the numbers from the CBO. It would be great if someone had CBO do the numbers with the 15-30 million new citizens (bet it wouldn't have passed).
* And, (Union) Card-Check, and Cap and Trade are the other 2 pillars of their plan for cementing lasting Democrat Party majorities and dominance.

Progressives will Win and the only way to get them out will be Recall or Impeachment and ONLY IF after Nov. 2010, should we hold off any form of Amnesty until then.

What's NEXT??

Keep your head up, it is time to invoke the 10th and kill this bill and the others soon to follow once and for all.

Lenin said:

“Medicine is the keystone of the arch of socialism” and “The goal of socialism is communism.”

Thomas Jefferson said:

“Whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force”

I say:
"Ignore the Feds, Empower the States"

We have state governments for a reason. Regardless of what today’s media would have you believe, state representatives are not elected state paper-shufflers or federal mandates. State governments share power with the federal government as equal partners in a system designed to decentralize power and protect “we the people” from foreign and domestic threats.

Ignoring D.C. actually means that we must use state governments to defy unconstitutional federal laws, starting with the health care bill today. The federal government itself must be identified as the threat and we must use the legal power of our state governments under the 10th amendment to eliminate the threat, and formally ignore unconstitutional mandates.

Ghandi had it nailed:

“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.“

For the most part, the federal government has ignored any resistance to the health care bill. Tea Parties have been ridiculed as radicals of all varieties such as “tea baggers”, “astroturf”, “racists”, and “domestic terrorists”. But, they have never formally acknowledged the existence of this movement. Once we begin to focus our attention on the state governments, everything changes. The media will be unable to ignore a block of defiant states. Personally, you will be ridiculed as a “tenther” (I think this is pretty cool) but once states exhibit defiance it will not be long before the federal government shifts it’s focus to the states not the individuals. That’s when you will know that you are not being ignored anymore.

At a minimum, your state will be ridiculed as out of touch with reality, as constitutional rogues, racists, and more. The governor of your state and your state representatives will be positioned as little more than common rabble rousers and will be the target of incredible pressure to compromise. But this must be overcome before we can win and we must solidly stand with state representatives. Federal funds will be used to coerce states to comply as has been common practice for some time. This will be specifically painful with health care because defiant state’s federal funds will be used to finance compliant state’s health care. However, this cannot be allowed to stand for any significant amount of time so states must be influenced to pass state legislation that denies the federal government what they covet most, tax revenue.

From here on, resolve will be the key. Not just your resolve, but the resolve of the rest of the citizens in your state. So it’s our responsibility to educate neighbors and make sure the right state representatives are in place.

TO Win..............

In order for us to 'reset' this country and return to spending time with our businesses, families and hobbies; we must again in no uncertain terms confirm the revolutionary message that the people are the source of power. The federal government must fear the people, and the state governments are the legal method in which to achieve this goal. Jefferson clarified the goal:

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Ignore the Feds, Empower the States.

This Sums up today....

Received this email from Chuck De Vore, running for United States Senate from California after the passage of the bill. --

The passage of this phony healthcare “reform” is a tremendous blow to the cause of fiscal restraint, limited government, Constitutional principles, and free enterprise. In short, it strikes directly at America’s core principles. This is shameful moment in the history of our country — and especially the Democratic Party, which has apparently come unmoored from whatever remaining attachment it had to the ideals of our Founders. In place of a dedication to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” there is only a rapacious impulse to ever-expanded state control, and an avaricious imperative to seize ever-more of your rightful possessions.

The Democrats are beyond reason. They are beyond appeals to common sense and patriotism. The corrupt milieu that produced President Barack Obama has metastasized and seated itself in Washington, D.C. — and we saw it on full display in the razor-thin passage of this healthcare “reform.” Every trick, every pressure, every shameless deal was done. Down to perverting the rules of the American Congress, the Democrats stopped at nothing.

Couldn't agree more!

States' Rights Movement - STAND UP AMERICA!

The battle over when states rights trump federal government edicts is as old as the constitution. But recently, an increasing number of states are standing up to the federal government and asserting their independence through legislation, resolutions or rhetoric.
It’s widespread. We’re seeing states all across the republic with different resolutions or legislation. Some deal with health care, some firearms.

States are declaring their independence differently. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 23 states have followed Montana and introduced legislation saying if a gun is manufactured in that state and stays in that state, then federal regulation, such as registration, doesn’t apply. On March 12, Gov. Mike Rounds of South Dakota, a Republican, signed such a bill into law. Wyoming’s governor signed a similar bill the day before.

Idaho’s Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter signed a law March 17 ordering the state attorney general to sue if Congress approves health care legislation. Similar bills are pending in 37 other states. Another Arizona lawmaker has introduced a firearms measure similar to the one signed by Rounds of South Dakota. Starting with Maine in 2007, 25 states have passed resolutions or legislation denouncing or refusing to implement the federal REAL ID which imposes strict – and costly – security and authentication standards for issuing drivers licenses.

While some say the push for states rights is largely a Republican, red state, Tea Party phenomenon, not so. Oregon, Wisconsin, Maryland and New Hampshire – all states won by President Obama in 2008 – where resolutions were introduced last year aimed at bringing members of the National Guard home from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The message is clear: Don’t Tread on Me!

At the center of the arguments made by states' rights advocates is the Tenth Amendment of the Bill of Rights:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

That amendment is a weaker version of a similar sentence in the earlier Articles of Confederation:

"Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled."

By the will of the States, our nation “Of the people, by the people, and for the people” refounded upon “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” would again become the beacon of the world as the rest of the planet realizes that we have finally decided to do something about our future! If the States don't become UNITED now, the wild Progressive coup in Washington under the direction of the Obama administration, will succeed in "fundamentally transforming" our country.

See Gibbs Dance...Lawsuit? Huh?


Fred Lucas ( Mark Levin with the Landmark Legal Foundation has prepared a suit against the President that if he signs the health care bill passed by the House without a recorded yea or nay vote required by Article I, Section 7 -- my question on that is, would the President rule out signing future bills such as immigration reform or finance reform you mentioned earlier that are not subject to a yea or nay vote in both chambers?

GIBBS: Again, this is -- I think we’ve discussed on a number of occasions, certainly the last time we met inside, that this was -- this is the type of thing that -- the type of rule that you’ve seen pass on any number of instances. So I understand that there are those that want to discuss this as being a unique thing. It is not. I stated earlier that when this bill passes the House the President will be happy to sign it.

CNS News: Well, is that still a constitutional argument in favor of it, that it’s been done before?

GIBBS: I’m unaware -- again, I didn’t go to law school -- I’m unaware that -- I’m unaware of legal suits filed by a similar organization when the Republicans did similar things on legislation.

CNS News: So the President wouldn’t rule out signing future bills that didn’t pass both houses by a yea or nay vote?

GIBBS: I’m not going to get into a series of legal hypotheticals that both of us seem unprepared to discuss.

I Will Not Comply

By John Hood

RALEIGH – I’ve been arguing the case against ObamaCare for more than a year. I’ve argued that it will raise costs, reduce freedom, and federalize the funding and regulation of a sixth of the nation’s economy. I’ve also pointed out that it is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of why medical costs are rising, and would destroy the only trend working against health care inflation – the rise of consumer-driven health care.

But now, I’ve lost my passion for continuing the debate. I’ve lost my motivation to identify the bill’s flaws and failures. I’ve even lost my anger at the arrogance of Washington politicians who think they know best how to manage my medical care and rearrange my personal finances.

Why? Because it’s becoming clear to me that I and other critics of ObamaCare have already won the intellectual battle. We’ve already succeeded in informing the public about the particulars of the bill, and the public now strongly opposes ObamaCare. The more President Obama shouts into his microphone, the more the public comes to oppose his plan. There is no conceivable way that the president or the leaders of Congress can legally enact their legislative monstrosity.

Instead, they are going to cheat.

They are going to employ some kind of legislative trickery to pretend to pass a bill that, they now realize, will never become law through constitutional means. They may use the now-infamous Slaughter Rule, which would allow House members to claim to have voted to amend the objectionable Senate bill without actually having passed it through the House. Or they’ll come up with an even-zanier scheme, including a subsequent reconciliation process in the Senate designed to overcome the very filibuster they’ve used to block conservative bills and nominees in the past.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m not planning to recognize such a result as legally binding. I’m not going to pretend to obey any dictates from federal health-care bureaucrats that have never been authorized by a constitutional vote of both houses of Congress. I will not submit to any extra-constitutional order to dismantle the consumer-driven health plan I have set up for my employees.

I will not comply. If the government tries to make me comply, I’ll sue. And I’ll win.

This is not (yet) a banana republic where constitutions are seen as inconvenient impediments to the rule of the despot. This is not (yet) a European-style welfare state where some powerful parliament can exercise legislative, executive, and judicial power all in one stroke. This is a constitutional republic in which government power is divided, its exercise is strictly limited, and our rights are not some generous gift of those in power, to be withdrawn at their whim, but are instead a permanent check on their power.

If the House fails to hold a straightforward vote on the Senate bill that was passed a couple of months ago, that bill can neither become law nor be amended by future congressional action. It will have died. There will be no ObamaCare bill, no new taxes or regulations, and no unconstitutional mandate that Americans buy health plans approved by politicians.

The president and his allies may claim otherwise, but that won’t change the reality of the situation. If they command the rest of us to pretend they have passed the bill, I will not comply.

You shouldn’t, either.

Obama and Democrats. They OWN IT!

Final countdown to vote

We are nearing the final countdown to the
House taking action on ObamaCare. The 72-hour countdown
clock will start as soon as the CBO estimates are released
and the bill is posted.

The next 24-48 hours are crucial as final
decisions will be made on what tactics will
be used -- including the "Slaughter Solution."

Things have gotten so bad on Capitol Hill that Nancy Pelosi
is now brazenly supporting using the "Slaughter Solution"
that will allow Democrats in the House to pass ObamaCare

Here's what Pelosi told a group of liberal bloggers: "I
like [the Slaughter rule]... because people don't have to
vote on the Senate bill."

Let's be clear -- this is blatantly unconstitutional, and
it is the latest in a long line of deceptive, manipulative
and corrupt means being used to force passage of ObamaCare.

What Pelosi is threatening has never been done before -- not
with any major piece of legislation and certainly not with
one that will control one-sixth of the economy.

The DEMOCrats have shut out ALL Republicans throughout the whole process.
The President does not return their calls.
They OWN this piece of corrupt progressive crap they call a Healthcare Bill. They want to
add and corrupt your childs access to college by tacking it to this piece of legistration. Why?

This is not a Congress bill. It belongs to Obama and Democrats. They OWN IT!
It's UNCONSTITUTIONAL and if they get it passed ..... Are YOU willing to sit by and see your Country

Our country is BROKE. We sit on the edge of financial COLLAPSE. These people are clearly
the ones in power to bring us back.
What do think they will bring us back to?? Socialism of a third world nation?

What are you willing to do??

Will you get behind your State? One State after another is passing resolutions and laws to exempt themselves from the authority of Obamacare and it is likely to reignite and vivify the Tenth Amendment as nothing has in decades.

Obamacare is the equivalent of the Confederate States declaring secession and the first shots fired at Fort Sumter.
That time it took a war to restore the Union, but this time a huge majority of people, Democrats, Republicans,
Libertarians, independents, and every other political flag other than the Communist and Socialist Parties.
USA is opposed to this 2,700 page monstrosity.

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The people. That’s us.

First Lady Michelle Obama's Servant List and Pay Scale

Sean Hannity is getting ready to tell us his annual 'List of Wasteful Spending' any day now but, I don't think this is likely to be one of them. It Should be.

First Lady Requires More Than Twenty Attendants:

1. $172,2000 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)

2. $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)

3. $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)

4. $102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)

5. $100,000 - Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

6. $90,000 - Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

7. $84,000 - Lelyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)

8. $75,000 - Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)

9. $70,000 - Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)

10. $65,000 - Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

11. $64,000 - Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

12. $62,000 - Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)

13.. $60,000 - Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Dir ector of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)

14. $57,500 - Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)

15. $52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary to The First Lady)

16. $50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special=2 0Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide to The First Lady)

17. $45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)

18. $43,000 - Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)

19. $40,000 - Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

20. $36,000 - Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)

21. $35,000 - Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)

22. $35,000 - Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)

(This is community organizing at it's finest.)

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady's social life. One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one ; Laura Bush one ; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President's own pocket.

Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and "First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air Force One to Europe. Or the extra childcare aids.

Natural Rights Patriot Act

Judge Andrew Napolitano

The Judge explains the hard core truth about the Constitution and why we must fight to regain our Country.

CHINA is ticked off... Relations "Seriously Disrupted"

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said on Sunday that relations with the United States had been "seriously disrupted," after a rise in friction between the two big powers.

FOUR Things:

Beijing and Washington have recently gone through a rough patch, with quarrels in January and February over Chinese Internet censorship, trade disputes, U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, and President Barack Obama's meeting with the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan leader.

Beijing has not yet acted on its threat to sanction U.S. companies involved in the arms sales to Taiwan, the self-ruled island that Beijing claims as part of its territory.

So then Bush must have been doing something right?? Bush, who was despised by all the commies, including China, Russia, Chavez, Castro, Obama, and Democrats. God Bless George W. and the job of VP pick Dick Cheney. China and Russia not only hated Bush, they respected his dedication to America and they knew he’d protect it.

China and Russia hate Obama because he’s trying to be top communist of the world and has taken the lead, but they also know Obama is their greatest ally in destroying America, so they are happy the Progessive Democrats infiltrated the government. Republicans and Independents and many Democrats now despise the actions of Marxist punk Obama.

China has been attacking the US for a few decades now and we are finally waking up to see what the Chinese really are, a bunch of goons and thugs that happen to hold alot of US debt. They have had huge tariffs on US goods while we lowered ours so that we can import their junk easier. This is, in fact, how China grew so fast: low tariffs in the US and the EU while China has high tariffs and subsidies.

PATRIOT - Sen. Jim Bunning

Sen. Jim Bunning is taking a beating today.

He is being lambasted, mocked and ridiculed as a crazy old man
who has lost his bearings.

Why? Because Bunning is insisting that Congress pay for its
lastest spending spree -- $10 billion in an emergency
Transportation and unemployment funding measure that
Congress has not funded.

Bunning doesn't oppose the bill -- just the fact that Congress
once again is spending money without funding the spending.
They are just adding another $10 billion to the deficit!

Plus, as Bunning points out, just a few weeks ago Congress
passed the "PayGo" law that requires Congress to fully
fund any new discretionary spending! Bunning is simply
holding their feet to the fire.
And for this, Bunning is the bad guy! He's being blamed
for causing 2,000 Transportation workers to be furloughed...
for the suffering of thousands of unemployed who will miss
their unemployment checks...

CNN went so far as to put on its broadcast, "Thousands hurt
by one Senator." Even G.O.P. strategists are worried that
Bunning's stand will give the Democrats the advantage.

I say, hogwash! It seems Bunning may be the last man standing
in the Senate.
Someone... somewhere... must draw a line and say NO to
the endless spending spree that is pushing our nation
to the brink of bankruptcy!

Help him out! -- Call your two Senators

Tell your two Senators that you AGREE with Sen. Bunning and
you want Congress to FULLY FUND any new spending!

Facts for your call:

--Sen. Bunning does not oppose the bill; just the fact that
Congress has not funded $10 billion in the bill.
--Sen. Bunning has proposed ways to pay for the bill but
those have been rejected.
--Congress just passed a new "PayGo" law that requires Congress
fully fund any new discretionary spending.

Washington » Sen. Orrin Hatch came to the defense of a colleague who is getting skewered by Democrats for blocking a bill that would extend unemployment benefits, Medicare payments and transportation funding.
