Beck made the comment the other day about not believing that candidates for this election cycle have been campaigning for two whole years now. A few of us saw what was coming after trying to educate a sleeping public about Chairman Zero, and the tragedy that was about to occur when he turned the country upside-down and shook it unmercifully. After that election, we immediately took up the duty of waking up the giant and flipping this congress in the rapidly approaching mid-terms.
Everybody is a little more than toasty around the edges; definitely deserving of a couple days off (except for those constitutional conservatives running for office), and a mental and emotional break from a long and brutal campaign before we take up the mantle yet again to make sure the republicans don’t turn RINO Progressive on us.
In keeping with that thought, LM is going to look different yet again since the giant is definitely awake and the tsunami needs to continue. Enjoy the Halloween theme, eat lots of candy (because it’ll piss Mishy off and the chocolate will definitely make you feel better), smile at many children because it’s contagious, and be thankful we made it this far.
Bill Whittle brings part 4 of the FireWall series; Tea Party Core Beliefs speaking to the difference between political law and natural law. The first three parts follow this segment.
If the House of Representatives passed a bill by a vote of 435 to nothing and then the Senate took up that bill and passed it by a vote of 100 to nothing, and that bill went right to the president’s desk and was signed into law, but if that law said the 1st amendment was overturned, well, even though it was lawfully, indeed it was unanimously done, that law would still be illegitimate. Period. And conservatives, especially tea party conservatives would be out in the streets with our rifles to make sure that this procedurally correct and unanimously voted on law did not take effect. And yes, we are proud of this.
According to Politico.com, former president Bill Clinton brokered a deal requesting that Rep. Meeks drop out of the Florida Senate race in order to allow progressive Charlie Crist (R, I, P) an open pathway to winning that senate seat against Marco Rubio. What won’t the progressives do to get one of their own inside the beltway? Since when does a former president who happens to be a democrat try to get another democrat to quit a race in order for a republican turned independent to win a seat? Open your eyes America; now you will understand why a DeMint/Paul leadership team is so important. If we are going to have republican control in the House and Senate, can we at least have somebody that upholds the Constitution?
Bill Clinton sought to persuade Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race for Senate during a trip to Florida last week — and nearly succeeded.
Meek agreed — twice — to drop out and endorse Gov. Charlie Crist’s independent bid in a last-ditch effort to stop Marco Rubio, the Republican nominee who stands on the cusp of national stardom.
What makes this all very interesting is a comment I just heard from Shep Smith speaking with Carl Cameron on FoxNews about Obama taking a page out of Bill Clinton’s playbook after Newt Gingrich and the republicans regained control of the house in 1994. The close working relationship that Clinton and Gingrich built under the banner of bipartisanship belays the actual common purpose of pushing global governance that these two progressives both envisioned.
Every once in a while, they slip up, and tell you what they are really thinking…and we should be worried.
I have been fretting since I realized some three months ago that the Republicans are going to take control of the Senate as well as the House, and Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are going to be ‘the leadership’ for the country. How scary is it to know that the two branches of the same party (Big Government) are sparring so as to appear to be enemies? How scary is it to know that we are moving from the whips and electric cattle prods of Nancy and Harry’s regime to the velvet gloved iron fist of McConnell and Boehner?
If Americans want real change in Washington, Sen. Jim DeMint and Rep. Ron Paul should be the leadership team to push the agenda that demands a rollback of 100 years of progressive nudge and stops the ‘global governance’ crowd from delivering a fatal blow to America’s sovereignty through debt.
A McConnell/Boehner team is not written in stone; it’s just more District of Criminals ‘business as usual’.
Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff says U.S. government debt is not $13.5-trillion (U.S.), which is 60 per cent of current gross domestic product, as global investors and American taxpayers think, but rather 14-fold higher: $200-trillion – 840 per cent of current GDP. “Let’s get real,” Prof. Kotlikoff says. “The U.S. is bankrupt.”
Writing in the September issue of Finance and Development, a journal of the International Monetary Fund, Prof. Kotlikoff says the IMF itself has quietly confirmed that the U.S. is in terrible fiscal trouble – far worse than the Washington-based lender of last resort has previously acknowledged. “The U.S. fiscal gap is huge,” the IMF asserted in a June report. “Closing the fiscal gap requires a permanent annual fiscal adjustment equal to about 14 per cent of U.S. GDP.”
McConnell and Boehner are creatures of Congress who are not driven by any desire to live at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
McConnell frets, however, about controlling expectations among tea party activists likely to want—and quite possibly demand—that bigger GOP numbers in Congress produce big things: a swift repeal of the health care reform law; a massive U-turn on federal spending; and immediate action to reduce the national debt. Tea party darling and likely freshman mover-and-shaker Marco Rubio of Florida, for instance, summed up the movement’s ax-wielding gusto in July: “Every day we postpone acting decisively to rein in wasteful spending and cut the debt, we pile even more on the backs of millions of young Americans.”
In one sign of conditional unity, Sen. Jim DeMint, the South Carolina Republican who backed many tea party candidates in open defiance of McConnell and other GOP leaders, says he isn’t spoiling for a leadership fight. But note the qualification. “I have no intention of challenging the leadership,” DeMint told National Journal. “What I have done over the last year has ruffled a lot of feathers in our conference. The chance of me getting the votes is not realistic at this point.” But DeMint says that Senate Republicans must change the way they approach spending and do it soon, or tea party activists will lose faith and rebel even more.
“We have to understand, this is not so much a Republican victory.… I see it more as a realignment of American politics,” DeMint said. “We’re going to have more Republicans, and the composition is going to be more of a limited-government idea. The biggest challenge we have is to change the idea that senators are here to do what is best for their states, to get all they can for their states and the interests operating in their states.”
And this is where DeMint is spoiling for a confrontation. He wants Republicans to cut spending no matter what effect those reductions have on their home-state constituents. He says this would be a “definitional” culture shift among Republicans, and he considers the pledge made by all the Senate GOP candidates—including relative moderates such as Mark Kirk of Illinois and Carly Fiorina of California—to adopt the no-earmarks policy the beginning of that change. DeMint sees earmarks as a symptom of a deeper problem: the structural bias for more discretionary spending and the clout that comes with it.
To reverse that trend, DeMint wants to upend generations of bipartisan logrolling. What’s his ask? That GOP leaders permanently exclude themselves from the Appropriations Committee, which allocates non-entitlement spending. If that rule had been in place during this Congress, three GOP leaders would have been kicked off Appropriations—McConnell, Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski. “If we are going to cut spending, we have to take the power away from those responsible for spending,” DeMint says. “We have to say no to a power base that can be corrupting over time, not in the sense of anything criminal, but in the sense that your focus is spending and not cutting.”
McConnell was icily noncommittal about DeMint’s idea: “We will debate any rule changes brought before the conference.” Kyl is downright opposed. “That suggests there’s something wrong with [the current system],” he said. DeMint’s point is that there is, in fact, something wrong with the current system. Thus, Senate Republicans may find themselves divided over their own rules even before they begin to grapple with Obama over spending, tax rates, or entitlements.
UPDATE: I’m even more worried now. Chuck Schumer as the Senate Leader?
G. Edward Griffin, Michael Murphy, and Paul Wittenberger’s documentary about the taboo subject of chemtrail/geo-engineering and the cover-up. Listening to the scientists speak during conferences will give a person chills. A few specifics to keep in mind: genetically modified seeds that are resistant to aluminum toxicity, a toddler on an organic farm in Maui that has drastically higher aluminum levels than the average child her age, 61,000 parts per million of aluminum in the ice at the top of Mt. Shasta in California when a government health alert is required at 1,000 parts per million.
It is particularly poisonous to the nervous system with a range of symptoms that can include disturbed sleep, nervousness, emotional instability, memory loss, headaches, and impaired intellect.
It can stop the body’s ability to digest and make use of calcium, phosphorus and fluoride. This prevents bone growth and reduces bone density. Aluminum can also cause conditions which actually force calcium out of the bones. Either of these situations can bring on weakness and deformation in the bone structure with crippling effects. Toxicity can also result in aching muscles, speech problems, anemia, digestive problems, lowered liver function, colic and impaired kidney function.

From the jacket of the DVD:
The information in this film will take your breath away.
By now everyone has seen crisscrossing streaks of white clouds trailing behind jet aircraft, stretching from horizon to horizon, eventually turning the sky into a murky haze. Our innate intelligence tells us these are not mere vapor trails from jet engines, but no one yet has probed the qustions: WHO is doing this and WHY. With the release of this documentary, all of that has changed. Here is the story of a rapidly developing industry called Geo-engineering, driven by scientists, corporations, and governments intent on changing global climate, controlling the weather, and altering the chemical composition of soil and water – all supposedly for the betterment of mankind. Although official insist that these programs are only in the discussion phase, evidence is abundant that the have been underway since about 1990 – and the effect has been devastating on crops, wildlife, and human health. We are being sprayed with toxic substances without our consent and, to add insult to injury, they are lying to us about it. Do not watch this if you have high blood pressure.
Greta interviewed Sen. Judd Gregg (uncut) on Obamacare, 10.27.2010. I enjoyed the fact that Greta just let the senator speak, and speak he does.
I think he (Obama) underestimates the common sense of the American people. When they look at something like this, they say, ‘hold it, this isn’t gonna work. It’s not going to work for me, it’s not gonna work for my family and it certainly not going to work for the country, and we can’t afford it.’
As this bill becomes more and more, as it starts to go into place, as different parts of the bill start to be actually undertaken and put into action, it just keeps delivering bad news to people. It doesn’t improve our health care system, it doesn’t improve the cost of the health care system, and it certainly doesn’t reduce the size of the government.
An excerpt of the Politico op-ed that Greta is referring to:
President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats promised us that the new law would lower premiums. It has not. Premiums in 2011 will rise more than 12 percent for employer-sponsored coverage, according to a recent Hewitt Associates study. Out-of-pocket costs for workers, meaning co-payments, deductibles and co-insurance, are also likely to rise by almost 13 percent.
We were promised that, if we liked our coverage, we could keep it. But we were misled. The Obama administration recently revealed that employees of nearly 70 percent of U.S. businesses, who get coverage through their job, may lose their current health care plan because of the new regulations. The outlook is even bleaker for employees of small businesses, the backbone of the U.S. economy.
Low-wage workers also stand to suffer as onerous new regulations are implemented. These workers may lose access to their current benefits because the government will prohibit their employers from offering a plan that is affordable and provides substantive benefits for working families. Companies like McDonalds, which help low-income employees with insurance, have put us on notice that they may have to drop coverage.
In the greatest understatement of the century, I am going to unequivocally say that the economy sucks rocks, and because of it, I need sponsors.
I started writing this blog in June, 2008, long before Obama was installed in an attempt to educate enough people as to the narcissistic, wealth redistributor that he is. I carried this site financially until January 2010 when 5 sponsors stepped up and started covering the costs of the server after I lost my job in September of 2009. My spousal unit lost his job seven months ago, and though we are making ends meet, we are about to be dead in the water as we are two of the millions of Americans that cannot find a job as our former industries have been collapsed.
It’s time to re-invent myself yet again, and I already have the greatest of opportunities. I have built a website that gets more than 4000 unique visitors a day, with thousands of page views and some very interesting visitors ranging from the White House, The Fed, to our daily visitor, Department of Homeland Security. I don’t have advertisers because I don’t want the message being blackmailed, and to be honest, the left and the right really don’t know what to make of this site. I am neither a progressive lefty nor a right-wing conservative; I am a Constitutionalist.
Logistics Monster requires between 100 and 200 sponsors (depending on monthly sponsor donations of $10 to $20) in order to turn what has been an uncompensated labor of love and patriotic duty into a way to provide for my family. I need folks to reward the hard work and due diligence of an American that has brought you the news and research that LM has become known for over the years, and wishes to continue to do so. I have done the work and brought stories to my readers that NOBODY else has covered (FinReg, 401(k), DHS). I want to turn lemons into lemonade, but I need your help.
Please be one of the 100-200 (of thousands that visit)that compensates the value of the work and steps up by becoming a ‘Monster Sponsor‘.
and on behalf of Tiger’s efforts, I put out the call for everyone to dig deep and send 20 bucks and or find someone supporting a valuable candidate to dig out 10 people to send 20 bucks to Tiger to launch this venture; give up a bottle of wine or happy hour or a steak just one day and pass it on to her somewhere she has a donate click. – Comment left by Granny
