The Ad Romney Should be Running

If the Romney campaign wants to blow Obama out of the water the simplest way to do it might be to simply take these two videos, edit them together and run it over and over in prime time followed by a simple question: “What Does He Mean?”

Wake Up, America! 4 more years of this type of fundamental change and you will no longer recognize your country.

Restore the Republic! Reject Socialism while there is still time.

Obama Signs Executive Order Establishing Council of Governors

He’s at it again! The President has signed another executive order, this time creating a Council of Governors  to provide input on “homeland defense and civil support challenges facing our Nation today and in the future.”  The President will select 10 Governors to serve on the council and help with the “synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States”. This executive order also is an attack on Posse Comitatus, a 1878 law bans military involvement in domestic police actions.

This is just another action designed  to continue to merge state and federal power. It also opens the door for more military involvement in domestic affairs and has sparked concern that the groundwork is being laid for a “national civilian security force”. Others fear that this is a step in undermining the 10th Amendment by eliminating more of the independent authority and the sovereignty of the States.

President Obama Signs Executive Order Establishing Council of Governors

Executive Order will Strengthen Further Partnership Between the Federal and State and Local Governments to Better Protect Our Nation

The President today signed an Executive Order(see below) establishing a Council of Governors to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State Governments to protect our Nation against all types of hazards. When appointed, the Council will be reviewing such matters as involving the National Guard of the various States; homeland defense; civil support; synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities.

The bipartisan Council will be composed of ten State Governors who will be selected by the President to serve two year terms. In selecting the Governors to the Council, the White House will solicit input from Governors and Governors’ associations. Once chosen, the Council will have no more than five members from the same party and represent the Nation as a whole.

Federal members of the Council include the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, the Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affairs, the U.S. Northern Command Commander, the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and the Chief of the National Guard Bureau. The Secretary of Defense will designate an Executive Director for the Council.

The Council of Governors will provide an invaluable Senior Administration forum for exchanging views with State and local officials on strengthening our National resilience and the homeland defense and civil support challenges facing our Nation today and in the future.

The formation of the Council of Governors was required by the Fiscal Year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act which stated, “The President shall establish a bipartisan Council of Governors to advise the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the White House Homeland Security Council on matters related to the National Guard and civil support missions.” (NDAA FY2008, Sec 1822)

Maybe this isn’t what it looks like but it does not look good or necessary… unless they are expecting some sort of problem. Either way Americans need to speak out against the ongoing assault on states’ rights and a rapidly expanding national government that is gobbling up all the power it can get its’ hands on.

Wake up America! We are running out of time. Let’s take our country back.

UN maneuvers to create “Global Gun Control”

In October unbeknownst to most of us, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the Obama administration would reverse the Bush administration’s opposition to the UN’s proposed International Small Arms Treaty. This will clear the way for the treaty to reach a vote by the U.N. General Assembly. Seven countries, led by the British, are trying to restart U.N. efforts to restrict imports and exports of small arms. The goal is to “regulate the global arms trade” and “prevent the illegal transfer of guns.”

John Duncan, Britain’s ambassador for multilateral arms control and disarmament, describes the UN’s disarmament committee as launching point for a global treaty. The British believe their very stringent gun laws are the right direction for all countries. Now they intend to use the United Nations to bring their gun control model to the United States.

The irony of this effort is that since virtually banning guns in 1997, the UK has watched violent crime skyrocket by as much as 77% in some studies. The British Mail Online reports, “In the decade following [the election of the Labor Party] in 1997, the number of recorded violent attacks soared by 77 percent to 1.158 million – more than two every minute.” As a result the U.K. now has the highest violent crime rate in the European Union.

So what could this treaty require of its’ signatories, here is a quick overview according to The National Association For Gun Rights:  

If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN “Small Arms Treaty” would almost certainly FORCE national governments to:

  • Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding citizens cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;
  • CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);
  • BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
  • Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

Disguised as legislation to help in the fight against “terrorism,” “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates,” the UN Small Arms Treaty is nothing more than a massive, GLOBAL gun control scheme. To the petty dictators and one-worlders who control the UN, the U.S. isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand totalitarian designs for the globe. These anti-gun globalists know that so long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide oppressive power they crave.  Ultimately, the UN’s Small Arms Treaty is designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.” So Patriots, here is yet another plan designed to usurp your rights which we need to defeat in 2010.

The gun-grabbers in the Obama administration and at the U.N. do not want us to have time to react and mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical treaty which if ratified steps on our 2nd Amendment rights. They (the UN) have been unsuccessfully trying to ram the “Treaty on Small Arms” down our throats since the mid-1990s. But this time they have an administration that appears willing to play along. The risk is high and the stakes are higher!

Wake up, America! Attempts to thwart our freedoms should be no surprise the anti-gun attitude of the current administration. We must turn the heat up on the U.S. Senate now before it’s too late! It takes 67 Senators to vote to ratify a treaty. Every freedom loving citizen needs to contact their Senator and tell them to vote against any attempt to ratify this treaty. This is just another attempt to give the U.N. jurisdiction over U.S. policy. On the heels of Obama’s recent Executive Order to provide Interpol with diplomatic level immunity from U.S. law and Constitutional behavior this is another slap in the face to our sovereignty.

Restore the Republic, Reject Global Governance!

“…to disarm the people is the best and most effective way to enslave them…” – George Mason

“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press.” – Thomas Jefferson

Obama signs INTERPOL Protection Act

Once again the President of new transparency and accountability quiet changes U.S. policy by way of an Executive Order without any public announcement. On December 17, 2009 President Obama signed an Executive Order amending previous E.O. #12425 originally signed by Ronald Reagan. The amendment removes safeguards put in place by Reagan that gave INTERPOL some latitude to operate within the U.S. while providing the U.S. government some oversight to their activities. President Obama’s Executive Order amending President Ronald Reagans’ 1983 EO 12425 and places INTERPOL above the United States Constitution and beyond the legal reach of our own top law enforcement agencies. In effect, Obama has given INTERPOL diplomatic immunity, exemption from being subject to search and seizure by law enforcement, exemption from U.S. taxes, and immunity from FOIA requests.

Andy McCarthy of the National Review asks, “Why would we elevate an international police force above American law? Why would we immunize an international police force from the limitations that constrain the FBI and other American law-enforcement agencies? Why is it suddenly necessary to have, within the Justice Department, a repository for stashing government files which, therefore, will be beyond the ability of Congress, American law-enforcement, the media, and the American people to scrutinize?”

Ironically, INTERPOL’s central operations office in the United States is located at the Justice Department offices. It is staffed with American law enforcement officers working under the aegis of INTERPOL. Now they can operate within our government buildings, with full diplomatic immunity, with inaccessible files and our hands are tied if we don’t like what is going on. I see what’s in it for them but what is in it for us? 

Is this a precursor to more damaging moves by the President? Some speculate that he will once again make America a signatory to the International Criminal Court. This change will surrender American sovereignty to an international body whose INTERPOL enforcement arm has already been elevated above the Constitution and American domestic law enforcement.

EXECUTIVE ORDER

AMENDING EXECUTIVE ORDER 12425 DESIGNATING INTERPOL
AS A PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION ENTITLED TO
ENJOY CERTAIN PRIVILEGES, EXEMPTIONS, AND IMMUNITIES

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words “except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act” and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.

BARACK OBAMA

THE WHITE HOUSE,
December 16, 2009.

In the spirit of the promised transparency, at a minimum the President owes the American public an explanation of his action. We need to understand why an international law enforcement arm that supports the world court which we are not a part of has been given status that places it above our Constitution. 

Wake up America! The clock is ticking and this administration is moving at break neck speed to “fundamentally transform America.” Our sovereignty, freedom and liberty are at risk. It is time to start holding this President accountable to the standards he set for himself. This is another example of the drive toward a world controlled by the U.N. This is not the Hope and Change that most of those who voted for Barack Obama expected. It is time to let the White House know that we do not want to be part of a “New World Order”.

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

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!

“Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction”. – Thomas Jefferson

The Treaty of Copenhagen – a threat to US Sovereignty

What is the Treaty of Copenhagen? According to the website, Web Commentary:

“The Treaty of Copenhagen, in present draft form, would create an unelected world government with direct power over all financial and trading markets, and direct power to intervene over the heads of elected governments in the economic and environmental affairs of all nations signing the Treaty. It would require wealthier nations to redistribute up to 2% of their annual gross domestic product to third-world countries in imagined reparation for imaginary “climate debt” – and all this just as final scientific proof becomes available that CO2 has a tiny and harmless warming effect. Please oppose this treaty by signing a petition agreeing with the Instrument of Repudiation, and urge at least five of your friends to do the same to save America’s freedom, democracy, and prosperity”.

http://www.webcommentary.com/

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. The Green Movement has become the new religion for some and it is the tool that they will use to “create the crisis” that could trigger the end of our country by using fear, manipulation of the food, energy and the healthcare system to achieve their objectives to push us into a world run government. This will as the President likes to say, “Fundamentally transform America”.

It is time to take back the control of our national destiny. Restore the Republic, Reject Global Governance and Defend U.S. Sovereignty!

“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
