Climate Lies Designed to Usurp our Freedom

The truth is starting leak out. Climate change is a scam. So you ask… Why? Why would anyone want to create such a global scare? As usual it’s the same old story – money and power. The Green Movement has become the new religion of the “global elite”. Climate change is the tool that they will use to “create the crisis” that could trigger the end of our country. They will use fear, manipulation of the food supply, energy and the healthcare system to achieve their objective; create a global government. Make no mistake this is an international conspiracy!

In a recent Wall Street Journal Op/Ed about the upcoming Copenhagen conference, UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon wrote:

” All agree that climate change is an existential threat to humankind. … The issues are complex, affecting everything from national economies to individual lifestyles. They involve political trade-offs and commitments of resources no leader can undertake lightly. … Yet the elements of a deal are on the table. All we require to put them in place is political will. We need to step back from narrow national interest and engage in frank and constructive discussion in a spirit of global common cause”.

First, all do not agree that its’ real much less an eminent threat to the world. Also read what is said closely and it is easy to see the real picture. The goal is a “global common cause”. So what does that mean? Again read carefully. It involves “political trade-offs”, “commitments of resources”, and “the need to step back from narrow national interests”. If you pay attention it is pretty easy to decipher, the plan calls for a worldwide social re-engineering that will lead to  world government.

Remember this what the climate change side is saying:

Quote from the Club of Rome: “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention….and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself….believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is “a real one or….one invented for the purpose.” (The Club of Rome is an elitist think tank founded in 1968 and dedicated to limiting growth of the industrialized nations worldwide.)

Quote by Maurice Strong, a primary power behind UN throne: “Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” (He was the first Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Maurice Strong has played a major role is globalizing the environmental movement. After reading the preceding quote his motives should scare the hell out of you!)

Next you have got to watch this Congressional testimony by Al Gore, who gives new meaning to the words, “pompous ass” while managing to totally avoid answering the question. By the way, it should be lost on anyone tht Mr. Gore is a big, fat hypocrite. Not only is he getting rich off this scam, he also has a enormous personl carbon footprint. I guess it is the old “do as I asy not as I do” thing; after all his like a superhero saving the planet and all. (excuse me while I hurl)

There is good news though, it appears a break through in public thinking is beginning to occur. Support for Cap & Trade legislation is sliding. Globally there are more and more critics stepping forward to challenge the science. 

On March 4, 2008 , scientists and researchers in climate and related fields, economists, policymakers, and business leaders, assembled at Times Square, in New York City, to participate in the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change. Those in attendance declared that global warming was not a global crisis.

And of course, in the last 10 days we have “Climategate” – hacked emails from Britain’s Climate Research Unit at East Anglia. Here are some excerpts from these emails:

Manipulation of evidence: “I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline”.

Private doubts about whether the world really is heating up:  “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate”.

Suppression of evidence: “Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise. He’s not in at the moment – minor family crisis. Can you also email Gene and get him to do the same? I don’t have his new email address. We will be getting Caspar to do likewise”.

Quote by Michael Oppenheimer, major environmentalist: “The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”

Quote by Emma Brindal, a climate justice campaigner coordinator for Friends of the Earth: “A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources.”

Wake up, America! This is a global scam. Our sovereignty, our economy and our futures are at stake! Contact your elected representatives and The White House – tell them; No Cap & Trade, No Treaties on Climate Change, No deals in Copenhagen and no  subsidies to foreign governments (carbon reparations) – we do not owe them and we can not afford them!

Restore the Republic, Reject Green Lies!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”.  – Ronald Reagan

Climate Change – “Hide the Decline”

Quote by Al Gore, former vice president: “I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.”

Quote by Sir John Houghton, first chairman of IPCC: “Unless we announce disasters, no one will listen.”

Quote by Emma Brindal, a climate justice campaigner coordinator for Friends of the Earth: “A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources.”

Quote by Michael Oppenheimer, major environmentalist: “The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”

As the wheels come off the biggest scam in world history, the cool kids at Minnesota Majority rock it with their video tribute to the false science of Climate Change. Take this Al Gore!

Here is an excerpt from Michael Mann’s hacked email explaining that the truth doesn’t matter: “Perhaps we’ll do a simple update to  the Yamal post, e.g. linking Keith/s new page–Gavin t?  As to the issues of robustness, particularly w.r.t. inclusion of the Yamal series, we  actually emphasized that (including the Osborn and Briffa ’06 sensitivity test) in our  original post! As we all know, this isn’t about truth at all, its about plausibly deniable accusations”.

Wake up, America you are being lied to! Our sovereignty and way of life is at stake. There are revolutionaries running our government who want to “fundamentallty transform America”. The Global Warming Lie is just a means to an end for them. Don’t fall for it! Being a good steward of the planet is a responsibility of all earth’s citizens but it is not necessary to destroy our country, our economy or our sovereignty to be a good citizen of the planet.

Restore the Republic, Reject Green Lies!

Thanksgiving… Thoughts For A Nation

As the uncertainty of the world and our national government are seemingly spinning out of our control, we should take this day to be reminded that no matter how frustrated we may feel – We still live in America! We are still the most blessed country on earth. We have the highest standard of living and more individual freedoms than any other country on the planet despite all our recent setbacks.

This Thanksgiving, our country faces many game changing decisions. These decisions will affect future generations of Americans and could “fundamentally transform America” in ways we have never really considered. At this pivotal time in our history we should take a moment and reflect on what made America the place that draws freedom seeking people to its’ shores from all around the world.

As a citizen of the world we have been a good and giving nation. Can we be a better citizen of the world? Of course, so can every other country on the planet. However, to do that does not require that we throw our heritage and sovereignty out the window. So what can we do differently?

It is time for a change! We must find a way to return to our core national values. We need to restore a feeling of pride in America, a feeling of a national community, the desire to help your fellow citizens. Doing the right thing does not mean establishing an enormous federal government to provide nanny state oversight so that everything is equal among the citizens. Doing the right thing is creating an environment that fosters opportunity, charity and community.

Don’t take our way of life for granted. Give thanks for your blessings.  Pray for those who serve our country. Pray for our leaders, that they receive God’s guidance and wisdom. Pray for those on hard times.  Be accountable for yourself and your family. Treat your fellow citizens with the same dignity you want to be treated with. Lend a helping hand where ever you can.

 As I said earlier, we are at a turning point. The choice is ours. We will swim or sink together. I wish for all a better 2010. Thanks to God for all he has blessed our nation with and may he continue to bless America.

The Manhattan Declaration – A Choice to foster a moral society

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. — John Quincy Adams

“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” – James Madison

“Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.” – Charles Carroll, signer of the Declaration of Independence

What is the The Manhattan Declaration: It is; A Call of Christian Conscience in the form of a manifesto issued by evangelical, Catholic, and Orthodox Christian leaders to affirm support for the pro-life movement, defense of traditional marriage (as contrasted to e.g., same-sex marriage), and one’s right to freedom of religion. The document calls for civil disobedience against laws which contradict Christian doctrines. It was drafted on October 20, 2009 and released November 20, 2009, having been signed by more than 150 American religious leaders.

The drafting committee includes evangelical leader Charles Colson, Princeton University professor Robert P. George, and Beeson Divinity School dean Timothy George. Notable signatories include Timothy Dolan, Justin Francis Rigali, and Donald Wuerl (Archbishops of New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, respectively), along with political activist Tony Perkins, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, National Association of Evangelicals president Leith Anderson, and Orthodox Church in America primate Jonah (Paffhausen).

My goal with this posting is not to preach or imply that Christian morales are the only way to live a principled and morale life. I struggle with endorsing the all of the positions of this group 100% because I also believe that some elements of this are personal choices. However, I do support the ideals of morality and the concept that moral behavior is a key to an ethical, civilized society. When a society becomes immoral, it’s leaders become corrupt and is often said afish rots from the head down. The down fall of  most great societies throughout history has been moral decay. It is time to rethink our values.

There is another reason that this group has banded together to take up this cause. The recent hate crimes legislation passed in the military spending bill opens the door for “thought crimes” and some religious leaders fear that their church teachings could be construde as hate speech if it offends a specific group that disagree with them. All of which leads to the even more worrisome issues around free speech and freedom of religion.

At the end of the day I believe that the majority of Americans want freedom, liberty and the right to pursue happiness. I also believe that we all generally agree with the principles of the constitution, the 10 Commandments and a higher power. We expect those that honored with the opportunity to lead us to be ethical and upright members of society not crooks. Our values made us strong before and they will again. If nothing else The Manhattan Declaration serves as a reminder that our country was founded on religious and moral principles and that we need to reconnect with those values. There is no political correctness in right or wrong, they are what they are.

Below you will find the Declaration itself and a link to go and sign the document if you so desire:

The Manhattan Declaration

Christians, when they have lived up to the highest ideals of their faith, have defended the weak and vulnerable and worked tirelessly to protect and strengthen vital institutions of civil society, beginning with the family.

We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are:

  • the sanctity of human life
  • the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife
  • the rights of conscience and religious liberty
  • Inasmuch as these truths are foundational to human dignity and the well-being of society, they are inviolable and non-negotiable. Because they are increasingly under assault from powerful forces in our culture, we are compelled today to speak out forcefully in their defense, and to commit ourselves to honoring them fully no matter what pressures are brought upon us and our institutions to abandon or compromise them. We make this commitment not as partisans of any political group but as followers of Jesus Christ, the crucified and risen Lord, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

    If you are inclined you can sign the Declaration here:

    “A constitution founded on these principles introduces knowledge among the people, and inspires them with a conscious dignity becoming freemen; a general emulation takes place, which causes good humor, sociability, good manners, and good morals to be general. That elevation of sentiment inspired by such a government, makes the common people brave and enterprising. That ambition which is inspired by it makes them sober, industrious, and frugal”.  – John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776

    The breakdown of morality and the family in our society is taking its’ toll on our country. Great societies throughout history often murder themselves through corruption and immorality. It is time to return to the values that made our country strong and helped us survive the major challenges to our freedom and sovereignty throughout our history.

    “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religion but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We shall not fight alone. God presides over the destinies of nations.” – Patrick Henry

    Restore American Values and our Faith in God,  only he can help us Restore the Republic! God Bless America & In God, we trust!

    Obama Under Fire… Matthews & Rasmussen

    The President’s numbers are tanking again. He is making such a mess of things that he has lost ground in almost every major area. Things are so bad that even MSNBC’s Chris Matthews a normally staunch supporter of President Obama recently referred to him as “Carteresque”.

    Here is a transcript from the that show:

    CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Welcome back. The word these days is optics, visuals, signals. In the Carter presidency, the optics were not exactly robust, and Ronald Reagan rode that to a big victory in 1980. Is the Obama White House sending some Carteresque signals these days? Some see that in the deep bow to the Emperor of Japan, an unforced error say critics. Then there was, there was what happened in China: Obama got nothing in the way of concessions over there in spite of playing the polite visitor. And his effort to speak directly to the Chinese was jammed by the government. Third, that decision to try the terrorists up in that federal court in New York City. Again, nothing that had to be done, and critics say it shows that Obama, his team doesn’t understand this is a war we’re in. David, that’s the question. These optics are everything in a president. Carter used to carry that garment bag over his shoulder. This president is he making mistakes like in China like in Japan? 

    DAVID IGNATIUS, WASHINGTON POST : I think he is coming across as stiff. He is talking too much sometimes and communicating too little. So the opposite of what we saw during the campaign. Although the decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York apparently was Eric Holder’s, it strikes me that it really is a mistake. I mean, there are too many bad things that could happen. There is no reason to have to have done this. And, you know, it’s a political feel for decision-making. That wonderful thing you just did about President Johnson’s feel for the moment. That’s what I think is missing now with this group in the White House. I don’t know where it’s gone. They certainly had it during the campaign. Maybe they’ll get it back. But it’s missing now.

    MATTHEWS: It’s the political touch. You were in China. You just got back. Tell me about that. The president tried to speak to the Chinese people and apparently it was jammed. Tell me about that.

    ANNE KORNBLUT, WASHINGTON POST: This was the big moment of the whole trip to Asia in fact, eight days in Asia he was going to speak to Chinese students in Shanghai unfiltered at least in his answers, and in fact the Chinese government, you know, they allowed the event to take place, but it was only shown locally on Shanghai television. People didn’t see it. The one piece of news he made in it saying that the internet should be free and people should have access dribbled out to the Chinese public and then started being deleted from all the Chinese websites. So, then, the following day he held a quote unquote press conference with the Chinese President Hu Jintao in which there were no questions and they read statements. Now, this is of course, this is the Chinese, it’s their home turf. They were allowed to do what they wanted to. That was the White House’s argument. And the White House haggled with them to get it more open. 

    MATTHEWS: The White House got jammed here.

    The once untouchable president is beginning to struggle with the public’s growing discontent with his policies and job performance. This administration has demonstrated an ongoing attitude of superiority and an apparent disregard for the wishes of the people by continuing to push unpopular programs and spending down our throats.

    If you need proof look no further than the numbers below from the most recent Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll. Also note that Republicans are currently beating the Democrats in every policy category and that leaders on both sides of the aisle in Congress have major problems with their “Unfavorable” ratings. For the record, the Republicans have done nothing to deserve this turnaround. The country is mostly conservative and independent – this is more a vote against the Democrts than for the Republicans. See numbers below:

    Perceptions of Obama

    Obama Approval Index -15

    Strongly Approve 27%

    Strongly Disapprove 42%

    Taxes Will Go Down 19%

    Gov’t Spending Will Go Up 66%

    Obama on Economy – Ex/Good 34%

    Trust on Issues

    Education  Dem 38%   GOP 43%

    Health Care  Dem 40%   GOP 46%

    War in Iraq  Dem 38%   GOP 45%

    Social Security  Dem 37%   GOP 45%

    National Security  Dem 37%   GOP 50%

    Economy  Dem 36%   GOP 48%

    Taxes  Dem 35%   GOP 50%

    Abortion  Dem 35%   GOP 47%

    Immigration  Dem 33%   GOP 45% 

    Gov’t Ethics/Corruption  Dem 31%   GOP 34%

    Congressional Leadership

    Nancy Pelosi  Fav 33%   Unfav 57% 

    John Boehner  Fav 27%   Unfav 34% 

    Mitch McConnell  Fav 26%  Unfav 32%

    Harry Reid  Fav 25%  Unfav 47%

    The numbers speak for themselves with 64% of Americans saying the country is on the wrong track. It’s time to go back to what works; a constitutional government and a free market economy.

    Restore the Republic, Reject the Agenda of the Radical Left!

    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” — Patrick Henry

    SNL Obama’s U.S.- Chinese News Conference

    The President’s personal popularity may be holding but his job performance and policies are starting to come under fire from all directions. Over the last few weeks even NBC has allowed SNL to take the gloves off and PBO is finally starting to feel the pressure of his office. Kudos for nailing the policy problems in the skit. Originally I had the skit posted but shockingly NBC pulled it back!

    Sometimes the truth is UGLY!

    Even the N.Y.Times gets it… Spending is out of control!

    Are we on the edge of financial disaster as a nation? Is the entire economy a house of cards? Has a recovery really begun? Whether you believe it has or not read the article below from the New York Times. Even given their normally liberal stance, it is clear that the growing deficit raises fear everywhere – even at the N.Y. Times! This is an excellent explanation of the problem.

    NY Times – Wave of Debt Payments Facing U.S. Government


    Published: November 22, 2009

    WASHINGTON — The United States government is financing its more than trillion-dollar-a-year borrowing with i.o.u.’s on terms that seem too good to be true.

    But that happy situation, aided by ultralow interest rates, may not last much longer.

    Treasury officials now face a trifecta of headaches: a mountain of new debt, a balloon of short-term borrowings that come due in the months ahead, and interest rates that are sure to climb back to normal as soon as the Federal Reserve decides that the emergency has passed.

    Even as Treasury officials are racing to lock in today’s low rates by exchanging short-term borrowings for long-term bonds, the government faces a payment shock similar to those that sent legions of overstretched homeowners into default on their mortgages.

    With the national debt now topping $12 trillion, the White House estimates that the government’s tab for servicing the debt will exceed $700 billion a year in 2019, up from $202 billion this year, even if annual budget deficits shrink drastically. Other forecasters say the figure could be much higher.

    In concrete terms, an additional $500 billion a year in interest expense would total more than the combined federal budgets this year for education, energy, homeland security and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The potential for rapidly escalating interest payouts is just one of the wrenching challenges facing the United States after decades of living beyond its means.

    The surge in borrowing over the last year or two is widely judged to have been a necessary response to the financial crisis and the deep recession, and there is still a raging debate over how aggressively to bring down deficits over the next few years. But there is little doubt that the United States’ long-term budget crisis is becoming too big to postpone.

    Americans now have to climb out of two deep holes: as debt-loaded consumers, whose personal wealth sank along with housing and stock prices; and as taxpayers, whose government debt has almost doubled in the last two years alone, just as costs tied to benefits for retiring baby boomers are set to explode.

    The competing demands could deepen political battles over the size and role of the government, the trade-offs between taxes and spending, the choices between helping older generations versus younger ones, and the bottom-line questions about who should ultimately shoulder the burden.

    “The government is on teaser rates,” said Robert Bixby, executive director of the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan group that advocates lower deficits. “We’re taking out a huge mortgage right now, but we won’t feel the pain until later.”

    So far, the demand for Treasury securities from investors and other governments around the world has remained strong enough to hold down the interest rates that the United States must offer to sell them. Indeed, the government paid less interest on its debt this year than in 2008, even though it added almost $2 trillion in debt.

    The government’s average interest rate on new borrowing last year fell below 1 percent. For short-term i.o.u.’s like one-month Treasury bills, its average rate was only sixteen-hundredths of a percent.

    “All of the auction results have been solid,” said Matthew Rutherford, the Treasury’s deputy assistant secretary in charge of finance operations. “Investor demand has been very broad, and it’s been increasing in the last couple of years.”

    The problem, many analysts say, is that record government deficits have arrived just as the long-feared explosion begins in spending on benefits under Medicare and Social Security. The nation’s oldest baby boomers are approaching 65, setting off what experts have warned for years will be a fiscal nightmare for the government.

    “What a good country or a good squirrel should be doing is stashing away nuts for the winter,” said William H. Gross, managing director of the Pimco Group, the giant bond-management firm. “The United States is not only not saving nuts, it’s eating the ones left over from the last winter.”

    The current low rates on the country’s debt were caused by temporary factors that are already beginning to fade. One factor was the economic crisis itself, which caused panicked investors around the world to plow their money into the comparative safety of Treasury bills and notes. Even though the United States was the epicenter of the global crisis, investors viewed Treasury securities as the least dangerous place to park their money.

    On top of that, the Fed used almost every tool in its arsenal to push interest rates down even further. It cut the overnight federal funds rate, the rate at which banks lend reserves to one another, to almost zero. And to reduce longer-term rates, it bought more than $1.5 trillion worth of Treasury bonds and government-guaranteed securities linked to mortgages.

    Those conditions are already beginning to change. Global investors are shifting money into riskier investments like stocks and corporate bonds, and they have been pouring money into fast-growing countries like Brazil and China.

    The Fed, meanwhile, is already halting its efforts at tamping down long-term interest rates. Fed officials ended their $300 billion program to buy up Treasury bonds last month, and they have announced plans to stop buying mortgage-backed securities by the end of next March.

    Eventually, though probably not until at least mid-2010, the Fed will also start raising its benchmark interest rate back to more historically normal levels.

    The United States will not be the only government competing to refinance huge debt. Japan, Germany, Britain and other industrialized countries have even higher government debt loads, measured as a share of their gross domestic product, and they too borrowed heavily to combat the financial crisis and economic downturn. As the global economy recovers and businesses raise capital to finance their growth, all that new government debt is likely to put more upward pressure on interest rates.

    Even a small increase in interest rates has a big impact. An increase of one percentage point in the Treasury’s average cost of borrowing would cost American taxpayers an extra $80 billion this year — about equal to the combined budgets of the Department of Energy and the Department of Education.

    But that could seem like a relatively modest pinch. Alan Levenson, chief economist at T. Rowe Price, estimated that the Treasury’s tab for debt service this year would have been $221 billion higher if it had faced the same interest rates as it did last year.

    The White House estimates that the government will have to borrow about $3.5 trillion more over the next three years. On top of that, the Treasury has to refinance, or roll over, a huge amount of short-term debt that was issued during the financial crisis. Treasury officials estimate that about 36 percent of the government’s marketable debt — about $1.6 trillion — is coming due in the months ahead.

    To lock in low interest rates in the years ahead, Treasury officials are trying to replace one-month and three-month bills with 10-year and 30-year Treasury securities. That strategy will save taxpayers money in the long run. But it pushes up costs drastically in the short run, because interest rates are higher for long-term debt.

    Adding to the pressure, the Fed is set to begin reversing some of the policies it has been using to prop up the economy. Wall Street firms advising the Treasury recently estimated that the Fed’s purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities pushed down long-term interest rates by about one-half of a percentage point. Removing that support could in itself add $40 billion to the government’s annual tab for debt service.

    This month, the Treasury Department’s private-sector advisory committee on debt management warned of the risks ahead.

    “Inflation, higher interest rate and rollover risk should be the primary concerns,” declared the Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee, a group of market experts that provide guidance to the government, on Nov. 4.

    “Clever debt management strategy,” the group said, “can’t completely substitute for prudent fiscal policy.”

    Look at numbers, they speak for themselves:

    Don’t fall for the recovery line. We need to remain vigilant and continue to fight for fiscal responsibility. We must shut down the runaway government spending and let the free markets “fix” the economy. It is time to worry about the future of our children. If we don’t get the economy back on track our children and grandchildren will be condemned to a country with a European style economy and a substantially reduced standard of living. Is that what we want our legacy to be?

    Wakeup, America! Speak up and be heard. Hold them accountable, they had their chance, it didn’t work – time to return to what works; the private sector, a free market economy less government and lower taxes. To save the country we love, we must revive the original American Dream, we must trust the structure of our constitutional government and the freedom it nurtures or the dream will not survive.

    I’ll close with some words of wisdom from a few of our founding fathers and great leaders:

    “If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy”. – Thomas Jefferson

    “With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” — James Madison

    As Thomas Jefferson said, “I sincerely believe… that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”  And…“With respect to future debts, would it not be wise and just for [a] nation to declare in [its] constitution that neither the legislature nor the nation itself can validly contract more debt than they may pay within their own age, or within the term of 19 years? And that all future contracts shall be deemed void as to what shall remain unpaid at the end of 19 years from their date?”

    Restore the Republic, Reject the Agenda of the Progressive Left!


    Obama and FDR’s 2nd Bill of Rights

    President Obama and his administration are trying to “fundamentally transform the United States of America”. They have set a path to institute a socialist society and try to establish FDR’s 2nd Bill of Rights. The goal is to create a “nanny state” where the government controls and regulates society. Freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will be defined and prescribed by the government. Your freedom as a citizen of America is under attack and at great risk. It is time to understand what is in front of us and at stake.

    Let’s start with FDR’s 2nd Bill of Rights:

    On Jan. 11, 1944, Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave a fireside chat from the White House and in that speech he laid out his ideas for his 2nd Bill of Rights. Roosevelt referred to his proposals in that speech as the basis for establishment of new security and prosperity, for all regardless of station, race or creed. “The test of our progress,” said Roosevelt, “is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.” Listen….

    Among these rights, he said, are:

    “The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation.

    “The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation.

    “The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living.

    “The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad.

    “The right of every family to a decent home.

    “The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health.

    “The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident and unemployment.

    “The right to a good education.”

    Our constitution provides us no legal claims to the entitlements FDR outlined. The framework of our constitution provides us the opportunity to succeed and acquire through the fruits of our own labor the things FDR spells out. These things are not entitlements of citizenship!

    FDR said, we already enjoyed “certain inalienable political rights –- among them the right of free speech, free press, free worship, trial by jury, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures.” He then said, “They were our rights to life and liberty.” Notice he left out guns altogether.    FDR described the 10 Amendments to our Constitution rights as “political” and insufficient. Yet our founding frathers saw them as God-given and a sacred trust to handed down unabridged from generation to generation.

    FDR had a misunderstanding of what rights are. Typically rights are granted by God, not governments. Following that line of thought we have the right to live free. We have the right to pursue happiness. We have the right to free speech. We have the right to worship our God. Everything else is a choice. The Bill of Rights says we have the right to bear arms but the government is not required to provide you a gun. We can choose to buy healthcare but we don’t have the right to be given healthcare. We are all free to work but nobody is required to. If you have to take from one to give to another you are providing an entitlement because a right does not take from another. If you believe you have a right to the fruits of someone else’s  labor, then you believe in socialism. The only way you can enact this second bill of rights is by destroying the first bill of rights.

    The administration is working hard to build a socialist society like the one FDR envisioned. A society that will turn control of your freedoms and livelihood over to the government. At the same time they are working just as hard to take away your real constitutional rights because they are an impediment to their goals.

    “We are blessed in America that we can fend for freedom with ballots instead of bullets. Our charge is to elect those who will deliver those freedoms, intact and undiminished, to those who follow us”. – Col. Oliver North

    America, it is time to choose. We have to decide if we want to remain the land of the free or if we want to become a “nanny state”. Remember, up till now America has been the world’s beacon of freedom. Ironically I have several friends and acquaintances who have moved here from Eastern Europe, they are horrified at what has happened to America. They keep telling me things like, “I have seen this play before and I know how it ends”.

    How will you choose? Again I’ll say it is time to stand up and make your voice heard. Time is running out!

    Obama + Holder = A Miscarriage of Justice

    When asked about the decision to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-proclaimed 9/11 mastermind, and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees in civilian federal court in New York City President Obama said he told Attorney General Eric Holder to make the decision based on the law.

    Holder has confirmed that Obama had left it up to him: “This was a tough call, and reasonable people can disagree with my conclusion that these individuals should be tried in federal court rather than a military commission.” Reiterating, “I made this decision.”

    However, according to former Attorney General John Ashcroft, “The attorney general doesn’t have the authority to mandate that the secretary of defense turn somebody over to him and yield jurisdiction so that something that would have been done in a military setting is done in a civilian setting.”

    In fact according to many legal analysts the only one who could order this decision is President Obama himself. So why is he letting Holder take the heat? To start with this is a wildly unpopular and unnecessary decision.

    According to CNN/Opinion Research Corporation, “two-thirds of Americans disagree with the Obama administration’s decision to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in a civilian court rather than a military court.” “The decision to bring Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in front of a civilian court is universally unpopular – even a majority of Democrats and liberals say that he should be tried by military authorities,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “Despite that, most Americans say that he will get a fair trial in the U.S.”

    And if Mohammed is found guilty? “Nearly eight in 10 favor the death penalty if that happens – including one in five who say they normally oppose the death penalty, but would support it in this case,” adds Holland.

    Mohammed has already confessed to his role saying, “I was responsible for the 9/11 operation from A to Z.” Instead of using this confession to move forward with a military tribunal to bring Mohammed to final justice, the Obama administration has opened the door on a 3 ring circus in open court. By the way last time I checked KSM was an enemy combatant not a domestic criminal or a citizen. This also creates the opportunity for federal judges to issue rulings that affect or delay the trial and/or punishment.

    So why does it matter where he is tried, if as the President says that those bothered with the change of venue for Mohammed won‘t find it, “offensive at all when he’s convicted and when the death penalty is applied to him”?

    Here are just some of the reasons this is a bad decision.

    To start with both Obama and Holder have pronounced the verdict and punishment before the trial has even started. By undermining the presumption of innocence, they are undermining the fairness of the trial, which is the alleged reason for it in the first place.

    But to make matters worse, according to the New York Times, Justice Department officials have said that even if “Mohammed is acquitted, the Obama administration will keep him locked up forever as a ‘combatant'” under the laws of war. Sorry if I am a little slow here, but isn’t this a contradiction?

    Next, there is the question of all those little legal details that apply in a U.S. criminal court. Keep in mind this man has been held and treated as an enemy combatant for 8 years. He has not been afforded any of the rights of a criminal arrested under the “normal” circumstances. Things such as his confession, no Miranda rights, access to an attorney and water boarding to name a few, will all be opportunities for legal challenges. How can these things be overlooked in his case when they are clearly part of our justice system? Watch as Sen. Lindsey Graham grills AG Holder…

    Then, there is the cost and security issues the trial will create for NYC.

    “Rough estimate from the city of New York, which I received yesterday, place the added cost of moving the trials of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the other terrorist suspects to New York somewhere in the ballpark of $75 million, that’s a minimum,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)

    Schumer said extra security procedures could push that number up to $100 million, and asked that the federal government foot the bill.

    Charles Krauthammer weighs in with these comments. “Apart from the fact that any such trial will be a security nightmare and a terror threat to New York — what better propaganda-by-deed than blowing up the courtroom, making KSM a martyr and turning the judge, jury and spectators into fresh victims? — it will endanger U.S. security. Civilian courts with broad rights of cross-examination and discovery give terrorists access to crucial information about intelligence sources and methods”.

    As former CIA Director George Tenet wrote in his book, “At the Center of the Storm,” when CIA officials first interrogated Mohammed in 2003, he defiantly told them, “I’ll talk to you guys after I get to New York and see my lawyer.” Now, thanks to Obama and Holder, Mohammed will get an opportunity to use the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York as a venue for his jihadist propaganda.

    Imagine what this trial looks like if this terrorist is allowed to serve as his own attorney. As Krauthammer describes it, “September 11, 2001 had to speak for itself. A decade later, the deed will be given voice. KSM has gratuitously been presented with the greatest propaganda platform imaginable — a civilian trial in the media capital of the world — from which to proclaim the glory of jihad and the criminality of infidel America”.

    The biggest question for me, however is; Who is really on trial?

    John Eastman, dean of law at Chapman University in Orange, CA fears a scenario in which, “It’s not so much Khalid Sheik Mohammed who’s on trial, but the Bush administration. Are we going to allow discovery of classified information so that we can get a fair trial? Are we going to depose past Bush Department of Justice and Pentagon officials”?

    So President Obama and AG Holder, what is your game? Is this just a creative way to set up prosecution of our CIA agents, military personnel and others who were doing their jobs and trying to protect us? Is this putting the Bush administration on trial? What happened to looking forward and transparency?

    Folks, this is the most dangerous administration in American history. They have no respect or regard for our Constitution or our laws. They are putting our national security and sovereignty at risk. Their policies are filing across the board. Our economy is getting worse not better as unemployment climbs. We have suffered our first domestic terror attack since 9/11. We have out of control spending; the stimulus bill, Cash for Clunkers, proposed healthcare reform and energy legislation. They promised to “fundamentally transform America” and they are doing it!

    The question now is; What are you going to do about it?

    We are at the turning point and we must take action now if we want to save our country. I believe at our core we are still a religious people that values family, faith and country. It is time to take back the control of our national destiny.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague”. – Marcus Tullius Cicero

    Here’s your sign – “Obamao”

    Michael Ramirez Cartoon

    Back in April when President Obama bowed before the King of Saudi Arabia at the G-20 summit in London, The Washington Times called it a “shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate”. It has been an American tradition of not deferring to any royalty going back to the days shortly after the Revolutionary War and the establishment of our democratic republic. After all was the reason we fought the war to break free of a monarchy that looked at the colonists as subjects instead of citizens?

    The Washington Times went on to say, “By bending over to show greater respect to Islam, the US president belittled the power and independence of the United States. Such an act is a traditional obeisance befitting a king’s subjects, not his peer. There is no precedent for U.S. presidents bowing to Saudi or any other royals.”

    The Weekly Standard agreed saying: “American presidents do not bow before foreign dignitaries, whether they are princes, kings, or emperors.” And yet….

    In the end the official word was: The President did not bow. So here we go again …a new picture of President Obama this time, bowing to the emperor of Japan. It’s the kind of image that just doesn’t sit well with many Americans. The president, the representative of the United States and leader of the free world should not be bowing to foreign leaders, royal or not. Obama’s deep, subservient bow is embarrassing.

    Miss Manners in a 2001 column said that bowing “is not an ordinary bit of foreign etiquette one might adopt out of courtesy when traveling. … Americans do not properly bow to any royalty. We show respect for other countries’ leaders the same way we do to our own.”

    America was built on a constitution that calls for freedom, liberty and equality not a caste system of privilege. Article I Section 9 of the Constitution forbids titles of nobility and stipulates that no officeholder or government employee may “accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state” without the consent of Congress.

    On this current sojourn in the Far East, Obama also claimed to be the first “Pacific President” referencing being born in Hawaii and growing up in Indonesia. He also made appearances in China where a curious thing happened – the Chinese have embraced Obama – cheering, carrying posters of Obama in a red army uniform and wearing “Obamao” T-shirts. There’s your sign! They get it why don’t many Americans – at a minimum he is a socialist.

    We are at the turning point and we must take action now if we want to save our country. I believe at our core we are still a religious people that values family, faith and country. This President likes to say, “We are going to fundamentally transform America”. It is time to take back the control of our national destiny.

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”. – Ronald Reagan

    “When we fled from the oppressions of kings and parliaments in Europe, to found this great Republic in America, we brought with us the laws and the liberties, which formed a part of our heritage as Britons”. – Caleb Cushing
