It’s been said that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and in this writer’s case, it is definitely the truth as I remember, quite vividly, watching my father (a WWII vet) yell and shake his fist at the television as former President Nixon stated that he wasn’t a crook. How dare Nixon behave in such a criminal manner when my father and millions of other Americans had put their lives on the line. Nixon was an embarrassment (as every president since has become). I am sure I inherited a healthy distrust of elected politicians on that day and the days that followed as Watergate unfolded. I am also sure that many of us, over the years, have done the same thing as we watched our Constitutional Republic, slowly but surely, be hijacked by a globalist driven cabal of government/military/multi-national corporations using our expertise, life energy (income tax) and our soldiers’ blood to feed the cabal’s vision of America as a global imperialist empire.
Their puppets, Reagan (raise taxes, go farther in debt, withdrawal from Lebanon, invade Grenada, CIA creation of the Mujaheddin which morphed into al-Qaida, Iran/Contra, the ‘War on Drugs’, and my favorite, Amnesty), Bush 41 (‘read my lips’, Iraq, the ‘New World Order’, and allegiance to the United Nations), Clinton (Impeachment, WTO, the subsequent loss of millions of jobs, more ‘War On Drugs’ money lost, numerous ‘Gates’), all corrupt men and a complete embarrassment to us as Americans.
Then, just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, George Bush (the second) and Al Gore were trotted out as our leadership choices by the powers that be.
Unbelievable. That is until Barack Obama and John McCain. And then Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
The first Bush was so bad that junior needed election ‘help’ to secure the White House. I knew that our political disenchantment leading to apathy was going to be used to conquer us. Little did I realize just how far the globalists would go to kill more than one bird with one stone.
Yes, 9.11, where not one, but two hijacked commercial jets were allowed to strike the Twin Towers, 17 MINUTES APART. Really? 34 MINUTES later, another ‘plane’ hit the Pentagon. One doesn’t even have to approach the explosions in the towers prior to the planes hitting or the controlled demolition or the ‘pulling’ of Building 7 aspects of this story.
Does anybody in their right mind really believe that the strongest and most technologically advanced military presence on the planet failed this epically?
This one event spawned the ‘never-ending unseen enemy’, the ‘Bill of Rights’ and Constitution shredding Patriot Act, the new gestapo, in the form of the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA, a now totally rogue government with unbelievable new powers to spy on it’s citizens, undeclared wars, and a massive outlay of cash that we no longer had (thanks Billy Clinton’s WTO free trade suicide), turning us into the debtor nation to foreign interests.
Enter the globalists’ newest Hollywood creation; Barack Obama with his trillions in deficit spending started by Bush II (leading to our economic demise and impending ‘walk of shame’ as beggars to the United Nation’s table, and possible civil war), nationalization of certain industries, the continued funding of the Big Banks to make them bigger, the on-going military presence in Iraq and the on-going war in Afghanistan, ‘Fast and Furious’, Benghazi, the un-Constitutional Obamacare law (I don’t give a damn what the Supreme Court said; they allowed the installation of Barack and had the audacity to state that the Obamacare mandate is Constitutional – in a pig’s eye!), and the now full force ‘police state’ surveillance of Americans culminating in the president (Obama and whatever fuhrer comes next) being able to use the US Military to arrest and detain Americans indefinitely by invoking the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
Are You F*&^$%# Kidding Me?
Yet, for me, the true defining moment that we (as Americans) are under attack from a cabal that does not have America’s best interests at heart (and is winning) was when Jon Corzine was allowed a free pass on a $1.6 Billion Dollar blatant theft of customers’ money. In that one moment, everyone should have realized that the ‘Rule of Law’ had been taken down the garden path to be beaten, tortured, raped, and curb-stomped to death. The ‘Rule of Law’ no longer applies in America. Just as the Constitution was made ‘to be a living document that could be tortured enough to say whatever’ the cabal wanted it to say. Just as enough mass killings (Columbine, Fort Hood, Tucson, Aurora, Newtown) will drive the very loud, liberal herd toward the abolition of the last remaining guard against any populaces’ genocide; the right to bear arms. Just ask the Russians, and the Chinese, and more than a few other populations.
After the shooting on Friday in Newtown, I turned to my husband and asked him what he thought would happen in America when Obama signs an executive order instructing the military to confiscate all firearms in the country? I cannot print his reply but I am sure the possibility has occurred to many of you given that the president can now arrest and detain indefinitely any American he so chooses while police departments all over the country are getting their shiny new drones to spy on us because the cameras everywhere just aren’t getting them off anymore.
We are definitely not in Kansas anymore Toto.
From the NY Times this morning (just Google the title as I refuse to link to them):
Pro-Gun Democrats Signaling Openness to Limits
Several people familiar with the deliberations at the White House in recent days said the administration, for now, was pursuing a strategy of taking time to develop a holistic response that could potentially be announced all at once, an executive order and a legislative proposal, rather than rushing to put out an executive order alone.
Saw that one coming a mile away….considering who we are dealing with.
I have one thing to say. The globalist cabal that is now in charge of America and has suspended any semblance of a Constitutional Republic with the accompanying ‘Rule of Law’ WILL NOT be getting any of our guns and our ability to defend ourselves and our families. You are dreamin’ and so is China (who is salivating at the prospect of a disarmed America). We know that you have been waging a war (for decades) against a entire world that didn’t even know they were being attacked and systematically subjugated through wars, famine, poverty, drug addictions, diseases, poisons, pharmaceuticals, debt, and a myriad of other cabal weapons.
We are aware, and after all we have been through, the line in the sand is being drawn right now.
The Founders, in their wisdom, gave us a way out. Actually, more than one.
“I Do Not Consent”
A divinely inspired man of 33 years of age once wrote:
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declarationof the thirteen unitedStates of America
hen in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.— Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
deriving their just powers (is the NDAA, the Patriot Act, Drones, Surveillance, the Federal Reserve’s debt enslavement, Wealth Redistribution, Income Tax, and unending wars (just to name a few) ‘just’?)
from the consent of the governed, (the governed (on both sides) have been screaming at you for a decade to STOP!)
— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, ($16 Trillion in debt?)
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, (Nullification – 10th Amendment)
and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. (STATES’ RIGHTS)
As the cabal continues to push their agenda using their liberal left tools, America is beyond waking up as evidenced by the Tea Parties on the ‘right’ and the Occupy Movement on the ‘left’.
Stop consenting to the dismantling of the American Republic by ‘going along to get along’.
We, as American simpletons, know that allowing our government to sell our sovereignty to the global loan sharks has diminished our national security. What happened to this simple premise inside the Beltway? I personally think they just don’t give a flying rat’s a** what happens to us, and they have purposefully put America in this position (both parties).
* China says U.S. must control deficit as economy recovers
CURRENCIES | BONDS
* Priority for world economy is to stabilise Europe
* External pressure will delay yuan reform (Adds fresh quotes from Zhu, graphic link)
By Chris Buckley and Aileen Wang
BEIJING, May 20 (Reuters) – Europe’s debt crisis has laid bare the fragility of global finances and the United States, too, must tame its fiscal deficit, a senior Chinese official said on Thursday, spelling out Beijing’s concerns before talks with Washington.
With China facing U.S. criticism for yoking its currency to a de facto dollar peg, Assistant Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao shifted attention to Beijing’s own worries about the euro zone’s woes and Washington’s rising indebtedness, ahead of the two countries’ Strategic and Economic Dialogue next week.
China wants “quiet discussions” about exchange rate issues, and loud lobbying will only delay movement on the yuan, Zhu told a news conference.
“External pressure and noise will do nothing but slow the reform process,” he said of the yuan exchange rate.
The global economy’s priority should be to steady financial conditions in Europe after Greece’s debt crisis, Zhu said. The United States also needs to control its fiscal settings, he said.
“The European sovereign debt crisis is a challenge not just for the countries that are party to it, such as Greece. In fact, it is a challenge to the stability of the entire international financial market,” he said.
“We have noted that President (Barack) Obama and Treasury Secretary (Timothy) Geithner have stressed they are paying attention to the problem of the excessively high U.S. fiscal deficit”, Zhu said, noting that it was also “a matter of concern to China.”
“We hope that the U.S. fiscal deficit will fall as a proportion of GDP as the economy recovers and reach a sustainable level,” said Zhu.
Glenn starts his program today with NOW’s statement about the Tim Tebow SuperBowl Ad, and the silence on the Betty White ad (which I absolutely loved!). What is more important is the presidential spending as a percentage of GDP starting with FDR farther along in this segment. What happens to Obama’s numbers when we start attributing his budget to George Bush?
I will add the Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore segments as they become available. Want to know more about Chuck (the Tea Party backed candidate), go here. This guy is sure to upset the moderates among us, but try to keep an open mind, and consider the state of the Republic, and the alternatives.
My favorite quote:
The president has the nerve to lecture America on wasting money. Do we really have to listen to this president preach to us about fiscal responsibility? Maybe it’s just me, but I think that’s a little like abstinence only sex education taught by Tiger Woods. President Obama is a lot of smart things. He’s accomplished, he’s good looking, he gives good speeches, he’s married to a woman with unbelievably well toned arms, I hear, but he’s as fiscally responsible as a Real Housewife of Orange County at a Louis Vutton sample sale.

It is obvious that Obama has thin skin when it comes to his critics, but I never thought David Axelrod was stupid or egotistical enough to get into a “size” match with another politico, especially Karl Rove. I definitely was wrong. Readers, think about what the Alinsky trained, Obama crew does every time someone scares them or points out their stupidity; FoxNews, Glenn Beck, Joe the Plumber, Sarah Palin, Independent Inspector Generals, etc. Given their track record, the White House and David Axelrod must be absolutely terrified of Karl Rove. This situation seems to have gone one step further with dueling presidential advisors. Why else would David, (the Chicago Hack), be stupid enough to take on The Master, Karl Rove (the guy that convinced the country to give Bush a second term)? David and Karl may both be intellectuals, but David will never reach Karl’s level of intelligence, and a smackdown of founding fathers’ proportions is more than likely on the way. What does it gain the White House for David to try to prove he’s smarter than Karl, and does he really think this is going to end well for either him or the White House when the facts are against them.
After you watch Karl wind himself up during an interview with Greta, David’s stupidity in black and white follows. You and I could shoot holes through the lies in this opinion piece.
For its Topic A feature last Sunday, The Post invited a panel of political operatives to offer their advice to the Democratic Party on strategy for 2010 [Sunday Opinion, Jan. 10]. Improbably, one of the operatives asked was Karl Rove, President George W. Bush’s longtime chief strategist.
Rove has some impressive campaign victories to his credit. But given the shape in which the last administration left this country, I’m not sure I would solicit his advice. And given the backhanded advice he offered, I’m not sure he was all that eager to help.
Of all the claims Rove made, one in particular caught my eye for its sheer audacity and shamelessness — that congressional Democrats “will run up more debt by October than Bush did in eight years.”
So, let’s review a little history:
The day the Bush administration took over from President Bill Clinton in 2001, America enjoyed a $236 billion budget surplus — with a projected 10-year surplus of $5.6 trillion. When the Bush administration left office, it handed President Obama a $1.3 trillion deficit — and projected shortfalls of $8 trillion for the next decade. During eight years in office, the Bush administration passed two major tax cuts skewed to the wealthiest Americans, enacted a costly Medicare prescription-drug benefit and waged two wars, without paying for any of it.
To put the breathtaking scope of this irresponsibility in perspective, the Bush administration’s swing from surpluses to deficits added more debt in its eight years than all the previous administrations in the history of our republic combined. And its spending spree is the unwelcome gift that keeps on giving: Going forward, these unpaid-for policies will continue to add trillions to our deficit.
This fiscal irresponsibility — and a laissez-faire attitude toward the excesses of the financial industry — helped create the conditions for the deepest economic catastrophe since the Great Depression. Economists across the political spectrum agreed that to deal with this crisis and avoid a second Great Depression, the government had to make significant investments to keep our economy going and shore up our financial system.
That is why President Obama and Congress crafted the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Despite Rove’s assertion, it is widely accepted that the difficult but necessary steps Obama took have helped save our economy from an even deeper disaster. And while Rove conveniently ignores that it was President Bush — not Obama — who signed into law the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program bailout for banks, the Obama administration’s rigorous stewardship added transparency and accountability that have cut the expected cost of that program by two-thirds.
If you want to read the rest, hit the above link, and for those that are interested, this op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal sure sounds like Karl is calling Obama a liar.
THIS would be the reason why the government should not be allowed to bailout private companies and then tell them what to do, AND the reason we haven’t been able to trust the government and would be fools to continue to do so.
Government regulators threatened to remove top Bank of America executives if they backed out of a buyout of failing brokerage giant Merrill Lynch, and offered to provide taxpayer funds to compensate for Merrill’s poor performance, according to company records obtained by The Washington Times.
The documents – e-mails between bank executives and their outside attorneys as well as board meeting “talking points” prepared for then-Bank of America Chief Executive Ken Lewis – offer new insight into the hardball tactics that produced one of the biggest deals negotiated during the late 2008 global financial crisis, one that is still reverberating on Wall Street and in Washington.
They also underscore the fear shared by then-Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. and Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben S. Bernanke that allowing the deal to fall through would mean a sequel to the collapse of Lehman Brothers, whose failure months earlier sent the world economy into a tailspin.
“It’s highly unusual for a government agency – let alone a Treasury secretary and a Fed official – to virtually order a company to do something like this under threat of removal,”said Cornelius Hurley, director of the Morin Center for Banking and Financial Law at the Boston University School of Law. “It raises a fascinating question which is, if you’re Bank of America and you have a shareholder’s interests paramount in your mind, what is your liability if you go against those interests in the interests of the country?”
Oct. 21 (Bloomberg) — The Obama administration will order seven companies that received the most government assistance to cut salaries of top executives by 90 percent on average, a person familiar with the situation said.
The Treasury Department’s announcement will come this week, the person said on condition of anonymity. Total compensation, including bonuses and other benefits, for the 25 highest-paid executives must be reduced by about 50 percent, the person said.
So maybe this administration is tryingto destroy the big banks by helping them?
CHICAGO (Reuters) – General Motors Co’s bid to find an outsider to replace its chief financial officer is being complicated by pay restrictions imposed on companies that got big U.S. government bailouts, The Wall Street Journal said on Saturday.
GM executives met recently with U.S. Treasury pay czar Kenneth Feinberg and left with the understanding the automaker would be able to offer a significant amount of stock but no more than a $1 million annual salary, the newspaper said, citing people familiar with the matter.
Sources have told Reuters that GM directors in September backed a plan for CFO Ray Young to leave the company.
GM emerged from bankruptcy in July after receiving $50 billion in emergency U.S. financing.
A spokesman for GM would not comment on whether the CFO search specifically was being hindered by the pay restrictions.
“We’ve consistently said that one challenge to filling any position from outside might be the pay restrictions,” GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson said.
We knew this was coming; the best and the brightest avoiding the government controlled companies for just this reason. I wonder how GM is going to pay us back when they go under for real?
The war to flip this country to socialism continues.
This century’s AYFKM? Award already went to Bush II and the Congress for putting the Patriot Act into place, and to all the other presidents and congresses who continue to allow this unconstitutional piece of garbage to supersede our Constitution, trample our rights, and imprison the innocent while Bambi wants Gitmo terrorists to walk our streets.
A 16-year-old homeschooled boy from North Carolina was taken away from his home in handcuffs two months ago and has been held by the FBI in Indiana ever since, a victim, his mother claims, of the Patriot Act spun out of control.
According to Annette Lundeby of Oxford, N.C., armed FBI agents and local police stormed her home around 10 p.m. on March 5, looking for her son, Ashton. The officers presented a federal search warrant and seized the tenth-grader’s computer, cell phone and bank statements.
Ashton was then taken to a juvenile facility in South Bend, Ind., charged with making a bomb threat in Indiana from his home computer.
His mother, however, told Raleigh’s WRAL-TV that she argued with the authorities, claiming someone must have hacked into her son’s IP address and used it to make crank calls. The agents’ search, she claims, also failed to uncover any trace of bomb-making materials.
“Undoubtedly, they were given false information,” Lundeby told the station, “or they would not have had 12 agents in my house with a widow and two children and three cats.”
Allowed little access to see her son over the last two months, facing a court date that keeps being pushed back and given no information by FBI agents sitting behind a gag order on the case, Lundeby now says the USA Patriot Act has unjustly imprisoned an innocent boy and stripped her son of due process.
“We have no rights under the Patriot Act to even defend them, because the Patriot Act basically supersedes the Constitution,” she told WRAL-TV. “It wasn’t intended to drag your barely 16-year-old, 120-pound son out in the middle of the night on a charge that we can’t even defend.”
It is this easy for the government to lock people up and throw away the key, and we all knew this was going to happen whether we want to admit it or not. Can anyone explain to my why a 16 year old kid is sitting in jail for two months. If he really is a home-grown terrorist, would not it be expeditious to convict and parade him around to prove the point that the Patriot Act works? How many more Americans have been picked up that we do not know about?
We keep hearing that America is a nation of laws that no longer exists as long as the fascist Patriot Act can allow anyone to be arrested and jailed with no hearing, an ever moving court date, gag orders, and suspension of due process. Who will be next; you, me, the little old lady at the end of the block? As long as we are going for the gold, we might as well add The Patriot Act to the list of reasons we will fire this government in 2010 and 2012 for ineptitude and inaction.
