Ex-Soviet Paper laughs at Obama's America

The following article was published by the ex-Soviet Union propaganda paper: Pravda.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years... The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America .

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America 's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more than ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.

Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motors) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less than two months ago, warned Obama and UK's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "free man" whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort.. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible.. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is.. The world will only snicker

Lieutenant Colonel Risk Court Martial Over Obama's Natural Born Status

Lieutenant Colonel Terry Lakin is risking it all in his quest for Barack Obama to substantiate his eligibility to meet the requirements as outlined in our Constitution. The following is from a press release:

Washington, D.C., March 30, 2010. “I am today compelled to make the distasteful choice to invite my own court martial, in pursuit of the truth about the president’s eligibility under the constitution to hold office”, said active duty Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin. The American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution, immediately announced it has set up a legal defense fund and will provide Lt. Col. Lakin with a top-flight defense team. Details are available on the foundation’s website,

I have stated in a previous post that Barack Obama's paternity automatically precludes him from eligibility. His father was a foreign national. Our founding fathers believed in natural law, and adhered to the precepts of Vattel's Law of Nations:


212. Citizens and Nations

The citizens are the members of the civil society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of citizens, THOSE CHILDREN NATURALLY FOLLOW THE CONDITIONS OF THEIR FATHERS, and served to all of their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, IN CONSEQUENCE OF WHAT IT OWES TO ITS OWN PRESERVATION; and it is presumed as matter, that each citizen, on entering into society; reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. THE COUNTRY OF THE FATHER IS THEREFORE THAT OF THE CHILDREN; and these become true citizens merely by tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming of the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe society in which they were born. I SAY IN THAT ORDER TO BE OF THE COUNTRY, IT IS NECESSARY THAT A PERSON BE BORN OF A FATHER WHO IS A CITIZEN, IF HE IS BORN THERE OF A FOREIGNER, IT WILL BE ONLY THE PLACE OF HIS BIRTH, AND NOT HIS COUNTRY.

I admire the bravery and rectitude of LTC Terry Lakin. Men of his stature are in short supply these days. I hope that he takes into consideration the TRUE DEFINITION of a natural born citizen when and if his court martial takes place.

Reid Supporters Egg Tea Party Bus

Look at how these people operate. They egg a bus and then blame it on the tea partiers as "staging". Are you not amazed at how readily they can lie? They have no compunction as to bear false witness to a police officer.

Let's face it, these people are the enemy. When you can stoop this low, and act this childish; then you are capable of anything.

Remember the march to the capitol on the health care vote? Not one piece of evidence has been brought forward to substantiate the claims that tea partiers where chanting the "N" word and spitting on black congressman. It looks like the black caucus has been doing some staging of their own.

The democrats have been getting away with this kind of nonsense for a long time. But with the new media, they're being exposed for the frauds we all knew them to be.

The Left is Unhinged

These people have no regard for anyone. Many came to see Karl Rove at a book signing, and a bunch of lunatics show up to disrupt the event. Code Pink and all of the other nut jobs who do these kind of stunts are selfish jerks. It's all about them and to hell with everybody else.

Karl Rove said it best in this video. Code Pink and leftist organizations like them, have a totalitarian mentality. They will harp about free speech; but deny it to others.

How many times have we seen these people shout down speakers at an event? Ann Coulter had to cancel an event at a campus in Ottawa, because a bunch of students wouldn't allow her to speak.

I'm not aware of a conservative group using tactics like this. Then again, they are more respectful of people's first amendment rights.

Comrade Waxman to Squash Obamacare Dissenters

Henry Waxman the chairman of the House Energy & Commerce Committee has called for an investigation on companies who have stated that they will lose money, and cut benefits to its current and retired employees because of Obamacare; as reported by the Associated Press:

AT&T Inc. will take a $1 billion non-cash accounting charge in the first quarter because of the health care overhaul and may cut benefits it offers to current and retired workers.

The charge is the largest disclosed so far. Earlier this week, AK Steel Corp., Caterpillar Inc., Deere & Co. and Valero Energy announced similar accounting charges, saying the health care law that President Barack Obama signed Tuesday will raise their expenses. On Friday, 3M Co. said it will also take a charge of $85 million to $90 million.

All five are smaller than AT&T, and their combined charges are less than half of the $1 billion that AT&T is planning. The $1 billion is a third of AT&T's most recent quarterly earnings. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the company earned $3 billion on revenue of $30.9 billion.

AT&T said Friday that the charge reflects changes to how Medicare subsidies are taxed. Companies say the health care overhaul will require them to start paying taxes next year on a subsidy they receive for retiree drug coverage.

The Politburo has just called in the recalcitrance, and will deal with these misfits with a heavy hand. After all who knows better about running a business than Henry Waxman? He has spent how many years in the private sector?

Henry Waxman hasn't worked an honest day in his life. He graduated from law school in 1964. He was then elected to the California Assembly in 1969. In 1974, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. And HE is going to pass judgement on these businesses? Has this guy ever glanced at a profit and loss statement? Has he ever made a payroll?

It reminds me of when the Bolsheviks implemented collectivist farming by stealing from the peasants and putting bureaucrats in charge. It led to rationing and starvation.

What in the hell are we doing to ourselves?


Rasmussen: Tea Partiers More Believable Than Politicians

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of U.S. voters believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation.

When it comes to those issues, 47% think that their own political views are closer to those of the average Tea Party member than to the views of the average member of Congress. On this point, 26% feel closer to Congress.

Finally, 46% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is more ethical than the average member of Congress. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say that the average member of Congress is more ethical.

As you would expect, there is a wide divide between the Political Class and Mainstream Americans on these questions. Seventy-five percent (75%) of those in the Political Class say that members of Congress are better informed on the issues. Among Mainstream Americans, 68% have the opposite view, and only 16% believe Congress is better informed.

By a 62% to 12% margin, Mainstream Americans say the Tea Party is closer to their views. By a 90% to one percent (1%) margin, the Political Class feels closer to Congress.

“The gap between Americans who want to govern themselves and politicians who want to rule over them may be as big today as the gap between the colonies and England during the 18th century,” Scott Rasmussen, president of Rasmussen Reports, says in his new book, In Search of Self-Governance. “If we had to rely on politicians to fix these problems, the outlook for the nation would be bleak indeed. Fortunately, in America, the politicians aren’t nearly as important as they think they are.”

Tea Partiers Protest in Harry Reid's Backyard

The Tea Party Express is taking the fight right into one of the nation's biggest villain's backyard: Harry Reid.

This tactic has to be employed to all of the statist who are up for re-election. It's just too bad that Sarah Palin is campaigning for John McCain.

I understand her fidelity to the man who brought her to national prominence as a running mate in the presidential contest. But what about her loyalty to the principles of the Constitution and its precepts of limited government? John McCain does not stand for that.

I guess we can forgive her transgressions. After all she is only human.

Arizona to Charge Illegals with Criminal Trespass

Arizona has a bill that just passed the state Senate that will allow law enforcement to charge illegals with trespassing:

Already passed by the state's Senate and currently being reconciled with a similar version in the House, the bill would essentially criminalize the presence of the 460,000 illegal immigrants living in the state.

The measure allows police to detain people on the suspicion that they are illegal immigrants, outlaws citizens from employing day laborers, and makes it illegal for anyone to transport an illegal immigrant, even a family member, anywhere in the state.

Governor Jan Brower has hinted that she will sign the bill if it makes it to her desk.

John McCain -- Mr. Amnesty -- has artfully sidestepped the issue, when questioned. He dismisses it as "states rights".

I hope that everyone in the state of Arizona remembers Senator McCain's arrogance and dismissal of the will of the people; and particularly the constituents of his own state, when he tried to shove amnesty for illegals down their throat a couple of years ago. Make no mistake about it, once he gets re-elected he will try it again.

I say go J.D. Hayworth! Beat that RINO!

I can only hope that my home state of North Carolina will follow Arizona's lead. As of January 2010, North Carolina has an unemployment rate of 11.1%; Mecklenburg County 12.8%.

If anyone goes to a construction site in Mecklenburg County or the surrounding area, you would think that you were visiting a third world country. Just try and ask one of these workers a question; you'll get a blank stare and a smile. In the meantime, an American is sitting at home waiting for a response on the hundreds of resumes he has sent out.


Drunkard Gives CPR to Dead Opossum

Wow. A man was found giving mouth to mouth to a dead opossum. He was drunk as a skunk and thought it apropos to help a fellow road kill. As reported on the Drudge Report:

State police have charged a central Pennsylvania man with public drunkenness after he was seen giving mouth-to-mouth "resuscitation" to a long-dead opossum along a highway.

Trooper Jamie Levier says several witnesses saw 55-year-old Donald Wolfe, of Brookville, near the animal along Route 36 in Oliver Township Thursday about 3 p.m.

The trooper says one person saw Wolfe kneeling before the animal and gesturing as though he were conducting a seance, while another saw the mouth-to-mouth attempt. Levier says Wolfe was "extremely intoxicated" and "did have his mouth in the area of the animal's mouth, I guess."

Oliver Township is about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

I want to know what that guy was drinking. Whatever it is, I want to stay away from it.

A Song Dedicated to Obama

You had me at 'when you bowl like a retard.'

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Socializing the Airwaves is Next.

And here comes the Hugo Chavez cure for silencing the opposition in the media. The democrats are defenders of free speech? Only the speech that they will allow us to have.

The new media is a threat to their power structure and Big Brother must eliminate anyone who can make it in the free market.

Castro Congratulates Obama on Health Care

Castro congratulates Obama on health care reform? This should be a red flag for everyone!

Paul Haven, Associated Press Writer, On Thursday March 25, 2010, 12:39 pm EDT

HAVANA (AP) -- It perhaps was not the endorsement President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress were looking for.

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform "a miracle" and a major victory for Obama's presidency, but couldn't help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

"We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama's) government," Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president's hand against lobbyists and "mercenaries."

But the Cuban leader also used the lengthy piece to criticize the American president for his lack of leadership on climate change and immigration reform, and for his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, among many other things.

And he said it was remarkable that the most powerful country on earth took more than two centuries from its founding to approve something as basic as health benefits for all.

"It is really incredible that 234 years after the Declaration of Independence ... the government of that country has approved medical attention for the majority of its citizens, something that Cuba was able to do half a century ago," Castro wrote.

The longtime Cuban leader -- who ceded power to his brother Raul in 2008 -- has continued to pronounce his thoughts on world issues though frequent essays, titled "Reflections," which are published in state newspapers.

Cuba provides free health care and education to all its citizens, and heavily subsidizes food, housing, utilities and transportation, policies that have earned it global praise. The government has warned that some of those benefits are no longer sustainable given Cuba's ever-struggling economy, though it has so far not made major changes.

In recent speeches, Raul Castro has singled out medicine as an area where the government needs to be spending less, but he has not elaborated.

While Fidel Castro was initially positive about Obama, his essays have become increasingly hostile in recent months as relations between Cuba and the United States have soured. Washington has been increasingly alarmed by Cuba's treatment of political dissidents -- one of whom died in February after a long hunger strike.

Cuba was irate over the island's inclusion earlier this year on a list of countries Washington considers to be state sponsors of terrorism. Tensions have also risen following the arrest in December of a U.S. government contractor that Havana accuses of spying.

In Thursday's essay, Castro called Obama a "fanatic believer in capitalist imperialism" but also praised him as "unquestionably intelligent."

"I hope that the stupid things he sometimes says about Cuba don't cloud over that intelligence," he said

Are Democrats Looking For Their Reichstag Moment?

Democrats are accusing tea partiers of using acts of violence against their members who voted for the reprehensible health care reform bill. I’m beginning to wonder if these acts were caused by democratic partisians.

When Nancy Pelosi and her confederates marched to the Capitol to begin the debate on the passage of health care; not only did they mock the civil rights movement, it seemed as though they were trying to provoke an act of violence. The congressional black caucus accused protesters of hurling racial epithets. Rep. Emanuel Cleave of Missouri said he was spat on.

Are you trying to tell me that not one picture; not one clip of video can be produced on this historic event to substantiate the claims of these democrats? Something is not right.

Rep. Tom Perriello announced that his brother’s gas line from a propane tank to his grill was cut; an accompanying letter supposedly was left behind. Now, why would somebody cut a gas line to a grill? That just seems preposterous to me. I would be tempted to say “manufactured”.

Rep. Louise Slaughter of the infamous ‘deem and pass’ bill had a brick tossed through her district office window in upstate New York. A Barry Goldwater message, ‘Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice’ was attached. I wouldn’t doubt the brick thrower was an aide of Ms. Slaughter, and they committed this act of violence to play upon the sympathy of her constituents.

Rep. Stupak – the Judas from Michigan – has received a number of messages from “pro-lifers” who have let their thoughts known on his answering machine. What the media is not telling us is that Stupak and his wife was receiving threatening messages from the left wingers who were displeased with his “stance” on abortion, as reported by the Politico:

Stupak, who in numerous recent interviews has called his life a “living hell,” said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown” that his wife has had to unplug the family’s home phone.

Stupak said that he has been “cussed out” wherever he has gone since becoming the face of a group of roughly a dozen House Democrats who vowed to vote against the bill unless the current abortion language is removed.

“Unfortunately for my wife, she has to unplug the phone at night because you get the phone calls at 2 a.m., 3 a.m. in the morning,” the Michigan Democrat said. “They want to cuss you out.”

“My staff is overwhelmed and we're accosted basically wherever we go by people who disagree,” he added. “We should have disagreements in this country. I for one am standing on a principle most Americans agree with. There's no reason for that language, abusive behavior to my family, my staff or even myself ."

Roy Beck of NumbersUSA attended the Amnesty for Illegals march in Washington D.C. which was sponsored by S.E.I.U. Mr. Beck tried to tape a video and commentary when he and his staff were harassed by union thugs. NumbersUSA explains what happened:

What happened Sunday continues S.E.I.U.'s and its allies' months-long strategy of dogging Roy's every public appearance, trying to shout him down or hounding event organizers to bar him from speaking. We have never tried to deny them their freedom of speech.

But this time the S.E.I.U. went much further. It sent a team of attorneys dressed as "mimes" and S.E.I.U. employees to stalk, push, shove, harass and whistle down Roy and his TV crew for several hours. It was very aggressive, including incitement of the crowd toward violence.

Roy filed criminal assault charges against the mimes and their S.E.I.U. organizers, who spent hours trying to block our webcast. (All of this can be seen and heard on the homepage of

When the Federal Park Police finally ordered the S.E.I.U. agitators to move away from Roy and our TV crew, one of the "mimes" took the confrontation to a new low by falsely accusing one of our colleagues of assaulting her -- some three hours after it supposedly took place! The Park Police, acting on the word of the agitators, hand-cuffed and arrested our colleague on the National Mall. (We got him out of custody before the night was over, but he still must fight the pending criminal charge in court!)

An S.E.I.U. thug falsely accused one of Mr. Beck’s colleagues of assaulting her? Go figure. Maybe we should remember what happened to a tea partier at the hands of a group S.E.I.U. thugs last year:

Many will say I am overly suspicious, but considering the acts of these people I wouldn’t put anything pass them.

Rep Perriello's Hands Are Free

The admissions of some of these democrats are just astounding! Tie our hands or we will keep stealing? Way to go Perriello! And you just voted for another huge, budget busting entitlement? You just don't need your hands tied; you have to be ran out of office.

Now take Rep. John Dingell's comments in a radio interview on Detroit's WJR News/Talk 760 hosted by Paul W. Smith, as provided by American Thinker:

Let me remind you this [Americans allegedly dying because of lack of universal health care] has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you're going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.

These people are no longer hiding! They are telling us exactly what they are. They're validating everything we knew they were about: big government statist.

Couple the above comments with those of Alcee Hastings: rules don't apply to them, and Al Sharpton's endorsement of Obama's socialism; and we have a perfect storm. A huge disconnect with the political class who thinks we are nothing more than an ATM machine who needs to be controlled and put in our place.

Go ahead. Keep flapping your jaws. It's time the American people see what you people are really about.

The Gleeful Dance of Socialism

They have so much confidence that they are coming out of the cracks and crevices. When you turn on the light, they don't scurry away; instead they stick out their tongues and dance the macarena.

March 23,2010: A Date That Shall Live in Infamy

Today the Constitution has been officially discarded. Barack Obama signed a bill into law that would require all Americans to purchase health insurance. This same bill mandates that the federal government hire an army of I.R.S. agents to steal our liberty, and property. They should officially change their insignia to that of the oprichniki: a broom and a dog's head.

The whole process is an insult to our intelligence. Obama's condescending and less than ingenuous speech; his signing ceremony where he used a little kid as a prop; Nancy Pelosi and her confederates making a mockery of the civil rights movement by simulating a march to the capitol. These people have no shame.

Members of the congressional black caucus accused tea party activist of hurling racial epithets. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said he was spat upon. No objective witness has come forward and confirmed these accusations.

I don't trust these people. After watching the corrupt machinations and outright lies these people have spewed, how can anybody believe a word they say? Until, somebody comes forward with a videotape, these conspirators should have a suspect eye leveled upon them.

The good news is that the states are filing lawsuits, and hopefully the courts will find this law unconstitutional. We can only hope.

We cannot afford another entitlement program with a new army of government overlords. It has already been stated that a value added tax will be implemented to help pay for this monstrosity. We are going to end up just like Europe. In the meantime, congressmen and their staff are exempt from participating in the very law they just passed.

I guess there really is two Americas; one for the political class and one for the rest of us.

The Fight is Engaged! We Shall Overcome!

The Democrats trampled upon the Constitution last night. The fight is engaged! And we the American people shall overcome!

We should not look upon this with apprehension; but rather with an opportunity that would not have come with John McCain as president of the United States. The Democrats have shown their true character, and it is blazoned with the hammer and sickle.

All the Progressive victories are on the table now. The 16th and 17th amendment should be debated and repealed. This has to be accomplished in order to take away the power from the central government and give it back to the states as our founding fathers meant it to be.

The tenth amendment is making a resurgence. When the mid-term election comes in November, we must make sure that those we put in office are dedicated to the principles that have ensured our God given rights; and not manufactured, government handouts . No more RINO's!

Barack Obama Is Not A Natural Born Citizen

The birthers are raising hell and havoc in the state of Hawaii. Their constant request for Obama’s birth certificate has exasperated state bureaucrats and they are pleading for a law that would give them the ability to ignore them.

I maintain that it shouldn't be about the location of his birth; instead, it should be about his father, who was a foreign national. I am going to demonstrate that our founding founders were wary of this, and put provisions in our Constitution to avoid this very scenario; as we have seen with good reason.


Article II Section 1 Clause 5:

"No person but a natural born citizen, OR A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES AT THE TIME OF THE ADOPTION OF THIS CONSTITUTION, shall be eligible to the office of president...."

Now why did the framers state: "or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible to the office of president...."? BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT NATURAL BORN CITIZENS. In order to be natural born you have to have parents (a father) who is a citizen of the country; since the United States did not exist prior to the revolution, none of the founders would have qualified; they had to be grandfathered in. Upon writing the "natural born clause", our founders were heavily influenced by Vattel's Law of Nations, which was published in 1758.


212. Citizens and Nations

The citizens are the members of the civil society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of citizens, THOSE CHILDREN NATURALLY FOLLOW THE CONDITIONS OF THEIR FATHERS, and served to all of their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, IN CONSEQUENCE OF WHAT IT OWES TO ITS OWN PRESERVATION; and it is presumed as matter, that each citizen, on entering into society; reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. THE COUNTRY OF THE FATHER IS THEREFORE THAT OF THE CHILDREN; and these become true citizens merely by tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming of the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe society in which they were born. I SAY IN THAT ORDER TO BE OF THE COUNTRY, IT IS NECESSARY THAT A PERSON BE BORN OF A FATHER WHO IS A CITIZEN, IF HE IS BORN THERE OF A FOREIGNER, IT WILL BE ONLY THE PLACE OF HIS BIRTH, AND NOT HIS COUNTRY.

The framers acknowledged the Law of Nations in our Constitution, Article 1 section 8 clause 10: To define and punish piracy's and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations.

When John McCain announced his candidacy for the republican nomination, his opponents questioned his status as a natural born citizen. Vattel’s Law of Nations answers this very question:

§ 216. Children born at sea.

As to children born at sea, if they are born in those parts of it that are possessed by their nation, they are born in the country: if it is on the open sea, there is no reason to make a distinction between them and those who are born in the country; for, naturally, it is our extraction, not the place of our birth, that gives us rights: and if the children are born in a vessel belonging to the nation, they may be reputed born in its territories; for, it is natural to consider the vessels of a nation as parts of its territory, especially when they sail upon a free sea, since the state retains its jurisdiction over those vessels. And as, according to the commonly received custom, this jurisdiction is preserved over the vessels, even in parts of the sea subject to a foreign dominion, all the children born in the vessels of a nation are considered as born in its territory. For the same reason, those born in a foreign vessel are reputed born in a foreign country, unless their birth took place in a port belonging to their own nation; for, the port is more particularly a part of the territory; and the mother, though at that moment on board a foreign vessel, is not on that account out of the country. I suppose that she and her husband have not quitted their native country to settle elsewhere.

§ 217. Children born in the armies of the state.

For the same reasons also, children born out of the country, in the armies of the state, or in the house of its minister at a foreign court, are reputed born in the country; for a citizen who is absent with his family, on the service of the state, but still dependent on it, and subject to its jurisdiction, cannot be considered as having quitted its territory.

So according to Vattel, John McCain is a natural born citizen.

I have heard arguments that the 14th amendment, and a subsequent ruling by the Supreme Court on U.S. v Wong Kim Ark gives natural born status to children born of foreign nationals. It does not. Two subsequent Supreme Court cases prior to Wong Kim Ark defined the 14th Amendment, and set precedence: The Slaughter-House cases, and Elk v Wilkins. Wong Kim Ark should not be considered settled law, since the justices ignored the aforementioned cases, and disallowed the congressional record on the 14th amendment.

It is because of the misguided ruling of Wong Kim Ark that we have this immigration mess to begin with. It is a perfect example of judicial activism that has gone awry. I might also add that the Constitution confers the rules of naturalization to the legislative branch, and not the judiciary.

Barack Obama has demonstrated the wisdom of Vattel and our founding fathers. He has alienated our historical allies and embraced enemies of Western Civilization. He is his father’s son!

Obama wants to fundamentally change the United States. He is doing it alright, and we are on the road to serfdom.


Democrats: No Rules Here In The House

And if that doesn't speak volumes of the attitude in Washington D.C. these days.

Alcee Hastings is a former federal judge in southern Florida. Hastings was impeached by the house of representatives on 17 counts of which 16 were for bribery. The Senate convicted him on 8 of those charges.

I guess Representative Hastings fits right in with the corrupt culture in that cesspool on the hill. It makes you wonder what kind of dirtbags keep electing this guy into office.

Joe Biden Admits Feds Intent on Insurance Industry

Joe Biden once again reveals the true intent of the democrats: control the insurance industry. At least at the end of this clip, he followed the talking points that was outlined in the infamous CBO memo by the democrats.

If these yahoos really wanted to address the high cost of insurance premiums, they might want to start with regulatory burdens imposed by both federal and state governments. But that would be an admission that the government is part of the problem and not the solution.

The Federal Government and Arrogance of Power

As the federal government expands its tentacles and wraps them around our collective throat, we can see the consequence that a powerful central authority can have over our everyday lives.

California’s San Joaquin Valley was once considered the bread basket of the world; that was until the environmental nut-jobs high-jacked the Federal Bureau of Reclamations office and the NOAA/Marine Biological Agency. These agencies used the Endangered Species Act to stop 95% of the water that was pumped into the valley in order to save a fish called the Delta Smelt.

The consequences have been devastating. Families are losing their farms. Unemployment has reached 40% in some areas with an estimated 40,000 jobs lost in the valley. The land of milk and honey has turned into a desert. The 750,000 acres of bounty now produces tumbleweeds. The loss of agricultural output from the San Joaquin will cost every one of us at the grocery store. Thanks a lot you morons in the Federal government.

Now that the democrats are trying to ram through their socialist health care program, they need the two blue dogs from that area to vote yea on their bill. Representatives Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa have been offered a bribe. In exchange for their vote, the water spigots would be opened in the valley. I guess the Delta Smelt is about to get screwed. So much for an endangered species; social Darwinism is about to swallow a fish, at least in the San Joaquin.

I hope that the two congressmen are not deceived by the powers that be and their promises. The Democratic leadership is as fickle as the attention span of a five year old.

If the spigots do open in California, don’t think that the environmentalist are defeated. They want to control and regulate all recreational fishing. Here are a couple of excerpts from Transition Green:

"Under the new Administration, NOAA (National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration) should support legislation and initiatives to promote a coordinated, cross Federal and State agency, systematic approach to protecting, maintaining, and restoring marine ecosystem health and resilience.

"This type of 'whole ocean' ecosystem approach could be pursued through a variety of administrative and legislative vehicles and conservation tools, including the establishment and implementation of a national ocean policy to protect, maintain, and restore marine ecosystem health and resilience, and the creation of Federal-state partnerships directed to implement priority needs under such a policy. This could enhance the effectiveness of marine spatial as a critical tool for promoting ocean health and resilience...

"Well-designed protected areas are a proven method of protecting and restoring habitat and the diversity, resilience and productivity of marine life and promoting overall ocean health. These areas can also improve scientific understanding of marine functions.

"Establishing a domestic and international system of marine protected areas is critical in the face of mounting cumulative pressures from fishing, pollution, coastal and ocean development and industrialization, climate change, and ocean acidification."

The days of Andy and Opie strolling down to the fishing hole could be a thing of the past; unless you have approval from a federal bureaucrat.

Another power grab is that no one will be able to get a student loan from a private bank. The democrats want sole authority as to who will and will not get a loan. This is absolutely outrageous. Can you feel the noose tightening around your neck? But there was one bank in the whole country that would have the ability to provide student loans; and that one bank is located in Bismarck; that was until word got out. It has subsequently been scrubbed.

Little by little they are eating away at our liberties. It will be just a matter of time before they tell us how big our toilet bowls can be. Wait a minute…they already have.

Democrats Deceive American People Again

The Democrats have once again been caught with their pants around their ankles. A memo has been revealed that instructs staffers and their bosses not to debate the Congressional Budget Office's scoring on the health care proposal. Here is an excerpt:

We cannot emphasize enough: do not allow yourself (or your boss) to get into a discussion of the details of the CBO scores and textual narrative. Instead, focus only on the deficit reduction and the number of Americans covered. ... These anti-reform extremists are making a last-ditch effort to derail reform. Do not give them ground by debating details.

The Democrats emphasize that a big part of the savings and deficit reductions will occur due to smaller Medicare reimbursements. This is a smoke screen due to the fact that a separate piece of legislation is in the works to increase payments to doctors, which would explode the deficit.

Second, most health staff are already aware that our health proposal does not contain a "doc fix." Some Republicans have repeated CBO's November 18 letter that says "the sustainable growth rate (SGR) mechanism governing Medicare's payments to physicians has frequently been modified ... to avoid reduction in those payments, and legislation to do so again is currently under consideration in the Congress." The inclusion of a full SGR repeal would undermine reform's budget neutrality. So, again, do not allow yourself (or your boss) to get into a discussion of the details of CBO scores and textual narrative. ...

As most health staff knows, Leadership and the White House are working with the AMA to rally physicians support for a full SGR repeal later this spring. However, both health and communications staff should understand we do not want that policy discussion discussed at this time, lest it complicate the last critical push to health care reform

Talk about culture of corruption! These people cannot be honest with the American people. November couldn't come fast enough.


Democrats Bribe Representatives on Slaughter Rule

It's about time that we put a stop to this out and out bribery that seems to be embedded in the Washington D.C. culture. Congressman are getting sweetheart deals to vote yes on parliamentary trick that would allow them to circumvent the Constitution.

This Slaughter Rule or "deem and pass" non-sense is an affront and an abomination to the Constitution. Article I Section 7 states:

All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur amendments as on other bills.

Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it becomes law, be presented to the president of the United States; if he approve, he shall sign it, but if not, he shall return it, with his objections, to that house in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such consideration, two-thirds of that house shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent together with the objections, to the other house, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two-thirds of that house, it shall become a law. BUT IN ALL CASES THE VOTES OF BOTH HOUSES SHALL BE DETERMINED BY YEAS AND NAYS, AND THE NAMES OF THE PERSONS VOTING FOR AND AGAINST THE BILL SHALL BE ENTERED ON THE JOURNAL OF EACH HOUSE RESPECTIVELY. If the any bill shall not be returned by the president within ten days, (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall be law.

Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary(except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the president of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or, being disapproved by him, shall be re-passed by two-thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill.

I don't believe I have seen such shameless disregard for the laws of our land. Anybody who votes for the "deem and pass" rule has the mindset of a third world dictator. And as Senator Coburn made clear in his press conference, we shall hold them accountable for their actions.

SEIU's Grecian Formula

Here is the union thug who would lead us down the road to Greece. Andy Stern would be the one to light the torch and burn down our institutions and way of life.

As of now government workers make more than those of us in the private sector. And here is what happens when these government workers and union thugs don't get their way:

Buyer Beware!!

The Fight Against Obamacare Is On.

While Nancy Pelosi and her confederates are trying to ram Obamacare down the American peoples’ throat, the people are beginning to fight back. The gauntlet has been thrown on the ground and the fight over individual liberty, states rights, and the reinstatement of a limited federal government has begun.

The latest to join the fight is Walgreens. They announced that its stores in Washington State will not serve new Medicaid patients after April 16. The reimbursement rate for medications is too low and costing the chain store money. Walgreens joins two other pharmacies in that state to opt out of the government program.

The medical profession is beginning to speak out on this government monstrosity. The democrats would have us believe that with the endorsement of the American Medical Association, the industry as a whole backs Obamacare. When in fact the AMA represents only 18% and is losing members daily.

The New England Journal of Medicine published a survey in which 46% of primary care physicians would quit or retire if Obamacare became law. Investors Business Daily published an IBD/TIPP poll in September of 2009 and produced the following result:

• Four of nine doctors, or 45%, said they "would consider leaving their practice or taking an early retirement" if Congress passes the plan the Democratic majority and White House have in mind.

More than 800,000 doctors were practicing in 2006, the government says. Projecting the poll's finding onto that population, 360,000 doctors would consider quitting.

A defection of this many doctors would create a crisis. We would have to follow the example of Great Britain and import doctors from third world countries whose ideologue and religious beliefs are antagonistic to western civilization. I’m talking primarily of Muslims. These Muslim doctors have been known to refuse medical care to Jews, and some have even plotted terrorist attacks on the host country. To invite this kind of immigrant is just asking for trouble.

One of the most repugnant items in the health care bill is a mandate that all citizens buy health insurance. Nowhere in the Constitution does the federal government have the authority to require an individual to buy a product. The states are stepping up and passing laws that would stop such an outrage. A list of states is enumerated by Scott Nance, publisher of On the Hill:

The Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act has already been filed or prefiled in 33 states—Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, ALEC says in a statement. Lawmakers in an additional four states—Montana, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and Utah—have publicly announced their intentions to file the legislation. A citizen-led initiative has also been announced in Colorado, the organization adds.

The democrats and their grasping of power have awakened a sleeping giant. Obama was right that his presidency would fundamentally change America. We are going to change it back to what our founding fathers envisioned, and not the Marxist utopia that he wants our country to be.

Health Care Is A Right?

Dennis Kucinich announced that he is in support of passing the senates health care bill through a parliamentary trick known as ‘deem and pass’. The freakish looking, cartoon character gave his life story before finally announcing his support.

Kucinich was initially against the bill because it did not provide a government option. According to this Mickey Mouse impersonator, health care is an unalienable right. Our founding fathers would be surprised at such a proclamation, since it was omitted from our Declaration of Independence. I had to check it a couple of times; and I could not find it anywhere! Somebody should tell this pint sized troll.

I wonder what other rights our founding fathers forgot to include in the Declaration of Independence. Do I have a right to fart in small, enclosed spaces while other people are around? I should… it’s my space too. Don’t I have a right to share the fruits of my labor? I know the government feels entitled to its share of my property and earnings; Dennis Kucinich certainly does. How else are we going to pay for this socialist monstrosity?

These spoiled brats...these self-indulgent Marxist will sink to any level to deceive the public so as to have power over us. They will parade a long line of victims to guilt people into supporting their bill, and the Constitution be damned. And the stories of these “victims” are not entirely true. They had alternatives either thru Medicaid or through private charities that could and would help them. Everyone that the democrats held up as an example had ties to an interest group that patrons their party.

No one is denied health care in this country. But we Americans are about to lose life, liberty, and property; so these megalomaniacs can thump their chest and proudly proclaim that they stuck it to the insurance companies, when the real villains are those who stroll through the halls of congress

Nancy Pelosi Thinks We're Stupid

It's getting to the point that I'm not surprised by the outright arrogance of these people anymore.

They want to pass this bill into law so that we the plebeians can see what was in it? Are you kidding me? What in the hell are you "Representatives" sent to D.C. for?

This San Francisco Logic is dumbfounding. I see a revolution on the horizon.

Rahm Emanuel's Naked Aggression

It's getting weird in Obamaland.

Son of Hamas: "No Moderate Muslims"

The son of Hamas founder states that there is no such thing as a moderate muslim. Finally, someone has confirmed what many of us have always believed.

Senator Richard Burr Ranked 9th Most Conservative

National Journal has ranked Richard Burr the 9th most conservative senator in 2009. He upped his ranking from 12th in 2008.

I must say I am quite surprised. After having to badger his office over the amnesty for illegals bill, I thought for sure this McCain acolyte would have ranked further down the scale. I must say I am pleasantly surprised. It just goes to show that you are judged by the company you keep; unjustly.

The following senators ranked higher than Senator Burr:

1) Inhofe -- Oklahoma

2) Demint -- South Carolina

3) Bunning -- Kentucky

4) Coburn -- Oklahoma

5) Risch -- Idaho

6) Thune -- South Dakota

7) Ensign -- Nevada

8) McConnell -- Kentucky

Congratulations to Oklahoma and Kentucky for having both senators ranked in the top 10.

Senator Lindsay Graham ranked 26th, just behind his mentor John McCain who ranked 21st.

Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina ranked 55th in conservative rankings, while listed at 42nd on the most liberal. I guess it's kind of hard to outrank all of the nut jobs in her party.

Again congratulations to Senator Burr, hopefully you'll rank higher next year.


Thomas Jefferson Witnessed Global Warming

Thomas Jefferson witnessed global warming as noted by Newsmax:

Climate change crusaders insist that the earth is warming largely due to the emission of greenhouse gases by motor vehicles and factories.

But Thomas Jefferson wrote about global warming back in the early 19th century, before there were any emissions from cars, coal-fired power plants, and other developments of the Industrial Age.

In a letter to Philadelphia physician and professor Nathaniel Chapman dated Dec. 11, 1809, nine months after he left the presidency, Jefferson wrote: “The change which has taken place in our climate is one of those facts which all men of years are sensible of and yet none can prove by regular evidence. They can only appeal to each other’s general observation for the fact.

“I remember that when I was a small boy, say sixty years ago, snows were frequent and deep in every winter, to my knee very often, to my waist sometimes, and that they covered the earth long. And I remember while yet young to have heard from very old men that in their youth the winters had been still colder, with deeper and longer snows. In the year 1772, thirty-seven years ago, we had a snow two feet deep in the Champain parts of this state, and three feet in the counties next below the mountains . . .

“While I lived at Washington, I kept a Diary, and by recurring to that I observe that from the winter of 1802-03 to that of 1808-09 inclusive, the average fall of snow of the seven winters was only 14½ inches, and that the ground was covered but sixteen days in each winter on average of the whole. The maximum in any one winter during that period was 21 inches fall, and 34 days on the ground, the minimum was 4½ inches fall and two days on the ground . . .

“Williams in his history of Vermont has an essay on the change in the climate of Europe, Asia and Africa.”

It’s clear, then, that the earth was warming during Jefferson’s time. It’s also clear that the climate change could not be attributed to man’s activities.

McCain Upset Over Hayworth Ad

J.D. Hayworth's new campaign ad has ruffled the feathers of John McCain. McCain has accused Hayworth of demeaning Native Americans by painting his face in blue:

Regardless, McCain is demanding that Hayworth apologize.
"Ex-Congressman J.D. Hayworth should immediately apologize and take down his latest online ad, which is an outrageous offense to John McCain's lifetime of honorable service to our state and nation, and insulting to Native Americans here in Arizona and across America," McCain campaign manager Shiree Verdone said Thursday in a written statement.

"Mr. Hayworth is welcome to debate the challenges facing our state and nation, but this kind of character assassination has no place in the Republican Party, and Mr. Hayworth should be ashamed of his campaign for running it," she wrote

Nice try Senator McCain. We all know what that ad means, including you. You act like a conservative when it's time for re-election, then stab us in the back as soon as you're safely ensconced in the halls of congress.

Good luck J.D., I hope Arizona kicks this RINO out of office.

Rules and Laws Do Not Apply To Democrats

John Adams once said that we are a nation of laws, not of men. He would be astounded to find out the reverse is true today.

The democrats have flaunted both law and rules with unabashed shamelessness. Currently, they are considering pushing through a parliamentary rule called reconciliation, so as to pass a major piece of legislation, that would have profound affect upon every citizen of this country. Reconciliation was meant for budgetary items; not major policy issues.

No one should be surprised by the conduct of these people. Democrats have a long history of disregarding the Constitution, and the very laws that they, themselves have passed. I will recount just a couple of the most recent affronts.

During the 2002 senatorial election New Jersey democrat, Bob Torricelli won his parties nomination. He was defending his second term in office against the republican nominee Doug Forrester. Sen. Torricelli ran into ethical problems from a convicted Korean businessman who made allegations against the senator for accepting illegal campaign contributions and gifts, which were not reported.

Election Day was fast approaching. The stench of Torricelli’s corruption began to show in the polls as he lost ground to Forrester. The Democratic Party panicked; forcing Torricelli to step down from the party’s nomination in favor of retired senator, Frank Lautenberg. There was only one problem. The deadline for ballot changes had long passed according to New Jersey state law.

The Republican Party filed suit. It went all the way to the New Jersey Supreme Court where these rogue justices ruled unanimously in favor of the democrats. The law was quite clear. They justified their ruling by saying that leaving Torricelli on the ballot gave an unfair advantage to Forrester. And they wonder why people have lost faith in our courts.

President George W. Bush’s judicial nominees were filibustered. The democrats did not adhere to Article II Section II in the advice and consent clause. A simple majority is all that is required, but the democrats used senate rules to obstruct nominees who they thought might adhere to the Constitution; setting again another precedent. And again violating their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.

Republican Senator Jim Bunning the other day held up a bill that would extend unemployment and subsidize COBRA health care benefits for 30 days. The Senator was just enforcing the “Pay As You Go” law that this very congress passed just last year. The good Senator wanted to know how they were going to pay for this:

"If we cannot pay for a bill that all 100 senators support, how can we tell the American people with a straight face that we will ever pay for anything? That is what senators say they want, and that is what the American people want."

The democrats and their toadies in the media pounced; calling Senator Bunning everything but a human being; and as can be predicted, the RINOS joined in.

How dare this man have the effrontery to enforce the laws that this very congress just passed? Doesn’t he know that laws mean nothing to them? Doesn’t he know that laws do not apply to the exalted political class?

Senator Bunning relented. The democrats beat him until he got his mind right. Re-education can be a bitch.

N.C. Waste More Stimulus Money

The more we learn about the Stimulus Bill and where the money is going, the more disgusted I get. Representative Larry Kissell and all the other yahoos who praise this boondoggle should be ashamed of themselves.

Here is a list compiled by Civitas of the top ten most egregious programs that have wasted taxpayers money:

1) Study of Monkeys using cocaine $71,623

2) N.C. Dance Theater $50,000

3) Reducing hot flashes thru yoga $147,694

4) Collecting, researching, and reporting on stimulus (propaganda) $492,940

5) Create interactive dance performance technology $762,372

6) American Dance Festival $50,000

7) Construction of a new town hall in Bladenboro $300,000

8) N.C. Folk Life Institute $25,000

9) Preservation of an insect collection at N.C. State $253,123

10) Greensboro Symphony Orchestra $50,000 -- no doubt Senator Kay Hagan had a hand in this one.

This is absolutely outrageous. Do these people have no shame?

'Grass Roots' Coffee Party is Astroturf

Here we go again. The ‘Grassroots’ Coffee Party movement has been exposed as an Obama front group; in Nancy Pelosi terms: Astroturf. Annabelle Park was portrayed in the New York Times and the Washington Post as an ordinary, concerned citizen who decided to become an organizer in response to the success of the tea parties.

Park was disturbed by the rhetoric and hostility that ordinary citizens were displaying to the democratic agenda. She wanted to emphasize that we are a democracy that unites us; that we need to be one community; that we need to be respectful and civil to one another and our elected officials. She believes that a vibrant federal government works for the common good.

A common error that socialist like Annabelle Park makes is that we are a democracy. No we are not! We are a constitutional republic. There is a huge difference between the two. It is an error that has provided serious consequences to our liberty and property. It is an error that undermines the tenets of our Constitution. Our founding fathers would be appalled.

The Washington Post and the New York Times failed to report that Annabelle Park was a former strategy analyst at the New York Times, who was an organizer and operator of the United for Obama video channel at YouTube.

Ms. Park’s goal was to undermine the Tea Partiers by co-opting the movement, as described in Newsbusters:

As to Park herself, she was a bit more than disingenuous when she made a claim of solidarity with the Tea Party movement:

“We’re not the opposite of the Tea Party,” Ms. Park, 41, said. “We’re a different model of civic participation, but in the end we may want some of the same things.”

Unfortunately her own words on
Twitter belie her phony claim:

Are we going to sit & watch the tea party take our government & media? Come on! That's inexcusable. Get off of your butt.

we must deal with reality instead of indulging the paranoid fantasies of the
#teaparty. join #coffeeparty

we're not going to take this tea crap anymore. let's work for change! #coffeeparty

Is there no low that these people will not sink too? They try to infiltrate conservative talk radio and now this. What could possibly be next?


Goldman Sachs: The Men Behind The Curtain

Don’t pay attention to the men behind the curtain!

Greece is undergoing a financial meltdown, and Goldman Sachs was a key player in helping them mask their huge budget deficits. The financial institution received $300 million in fees for arranging a derivative transaction in 2001.

Upon entering the European Union, member countries agreed not to exceed budget deficits of 3% of GDP; Greece is at 13%. Many suspect other members have engaged in similar practices.

Goldman Sachs was a huge player in the U.S. banking crisis. When the federal government was dispensing cash through the TARP program, Sachs converted to a bank holding company so as to qualify for funding.

Secretary of Treasury Henry Paulson called in former colleagues at Sachs to help manage the crisis:

Neel Kashkari – appointed to oversee $700 billion fund to buy toxic and bank assets
Steve Shafran – student loan problems, guarantee money market funds, etc…etc
Dan Jester – involved in the government takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
Kendrick Wilson – worked with heads of banks to apprise them of treasury plans and gauge their response. He also worked with two other Sachs executives: Edward Frost and Robert Steele.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner did not work for Goldman Sachs, but had close ties with Bob Rubin who was co-chair at the famed firm. Geithner became president of the New York Federal Reserve. The New York Times wrote of the relationship:

Some people say that all of these Goldman ties to the New York Fed are simply too close for comfort. “It’s grotesque,” said Christopher Whalen, a managing partner at Institutional Risk Analytics and a critic of the Fed. “And it’s done without apology.”

Bob Rubin became treasury secretary under Bill Clinton, and then senior counselor at Citigroup, which also received billions in bailouts.

Secretary Paulson appointed Edward M. Libby, Goldman Sachs director in 2003 to act as A.I.G.’s chairman of audit committee. Sachs had $20 billion in credit derivatives with A.I.G. who was the company’s largest trading partner. Market watch wrote the following:

Until it was fully extricated, Goldman always characterized its exposure to AIG as "immaterial," and that its $20 billion notional exposure to AIG was hedged. Turns out that it was -- through government bailouts that didn't exist when Goldman entered the contracts.

Even former New York Luv Guv Eliot Spitzer told journalist Fareed Zakaria on Sunday that he thinks something smells.
"The web between AIG and Goldman Sachs is something that should be pursued," Spitzer said. "Why did [those payments] happen, what questions were asked, why did we need to pay 100 cents on the dollar for those transactions if we had to pay anything, what would have happened to the financial system had it not been paid?"

Yes, it looks like Government Sachs has made out quite well. They have managed to make a profit, while their competitors went out of business or are greatly diminished. They are like the Colossus of Rhodes, whose stance strides over the financial harbors of the world. Hopefully, their foundation is more stable.

Obama Tries To Infiltrate Talk Radio

Barack Obama and his propaganda machine is trying to infiltrate conservative talk radio. Their objective is to influence audiences on government controlled health care. The website is called Organizing For America On The Air, a project of the Democratic National Committee.

Here are their talking points:

Be polite, respectful, and clear. Remember, you represent Organizing for America.

How radio stations will connect you will depend on the show. Some radio shows may connect you right away, but most will take your name and basic info and put you on hold. You may or may not be able to hear the broadcast on the show while you're waiting. You may hear the radio host say something like, "Hello, we have your name on the line with us."

Some hosts may challenge your views. Stay calm and firm. Sharing a personal story about how health reform affects you and your family is a great way to show the importance and urgency of health reform.

If you can't get through, don't worry! If the show you call is busy or not accepting calls at the moment you call in, simply click "Give me another show" to find another.


These points are only to provide extra information and suggestions. Your personal story will make the most compelling message.

For most Americans, their health care plan covers too little and costs too much. Far too many people delay or even skip the care they need because they simply can’t afford it.

The plan the President laid out includes the largest health care tax cut for middle class families in history and makes coverage more affordable for tens of millions of families and small business owners and expands coverage to over 31 million Americans who are currently uninsured.

This plan will give millions of Americans new choices in health insurance by making coverage more affordable, ending the denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions, putting power in the hands of consumers instead of insurance companies and providing one of the largest tax cuts in history while also reducing our national deficit.

Reform couldn’t be more urgent – just this month consumers in California were told their premiums could go up as much as 39 percent.

Too many in Washington are now saying that we should delay or give up on reform entirely, but Americans understand the stakes for our economy and our lives, and we want action.

What a hoot! Do they seriously believe that after publishing this on the internet that no one would have caught onto their scheme? Apparently, Al Gore after inventing the internet forgot to exclude conservatives from accessing their dastardly deeds. Another commie plot foiled! And we don't even have moose and squirrel to help us!

You have to love all of the Obama symbols plastered all over the site. They haven't caught on to the fact that this guy is tainted. Why don't you just scream SOCIALISM on the header as well?
