Ilhan Omar and Her Party of Hate

The Hateful New Democrats’ New Leader

When the newly seated Democrat majority passed a change to House rules permitting the wearing of the hijab in the House chamber, one might have guessed that it didn’t bode well for that institution.  Incoming freshman Representative Ilhan Omar(D-MN) has been on a non-stop anti-Jew, anti-Israel tirade for all of her public life, and just as she expected Democrats to bulldoze rules to permit her to wear her headgear in the House, she expects them to let her go on with her hate without any restraint.  After a string of non-apology apologies, and after much gnashing of teeth in her party’s caucus, the answer is clear: The Democrat Party is endorsing her brand of hatred, as they launch their latest jihad against the American people.  It’s her party now, and it’s a party of hate.

In one instance after another, Omar has repeatedly played on anti-semitic stereotypes and slurs to advance her cause.  The shocking part has been that the fools in her party have accepted it.  They’ve tolerated it.  They will not sanction her for it, and they will not take responsibility for their collective refusal to act.  Instead, they’ve introduced a neutered, generic resolution condemning hate. It’s caused a split in the Democrat Party in the House, with the few remaining semi-sane Democrats insisting that the language must be stronger. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) has said the new version of the resolution will not mention Omar directly.

This is the Democrat Party of 2019: It’s a barely-restrained, hate-filled, pile of identity-politics.  They have fallen so far that they cannot even agree within their caucus about the evils of anti-semitism.  Instead, they offer platitudes about generic hate.

I have no problem with hate, because I believe in freedom of speech and freedom of thought.  If people like Omar wish to express their vile and unremitting hatred of the Jewish people and the State of Israel, that’s fine, but don’t dare to tell me how the Democrat Party is a party of tolerance as they increasingly incorporate virulently anti-semitic people into their party.  People like Keith Ellison(D-MN), and Ilhan Omar(D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib(D-MI) among lesser lights are the new version of Democrat hatred, replacing their old-timey haters like Senator Byrd(D-WV,) known for his 51 years in the US Senate and his membership in the KKK. Of course, big-time politicians who were KKK members were also almost universally Democrats.  It appears that their party always needs somebody to hate.  Today, it’s the long-suffering Jewish people.  We must continue to press the Democrats to reconcile their alleged “party of inclusion” while they continue to adopt disgusting anti-semites and other racists into their midst.  In the Republican Party, the party ejects such people.  Ask Steve King.  Meanwhile, in the House, the Democrats are making plain that they are the party of hate.

America Under Attack

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

Barbarians at the Gates

Our nation is being demolished.  Our culture is being fragmented.  Our children are being corrupted.  Our institutions are being destroyed.  Our society is collapsing from within.  Our moral standards have been thoroughly undermined.  It’s an attack on all fronts.  We are surrounded, Patriots, and we are losing.  It is being carried out with malice aforethought. The attack is disguised as other things.  It’s hidden in front of your eyes, right under your nose, in such a way that you will not notice it until it’s too late.  The attack has been unrelenting for quite a few years, but now we’re coming to that moment at which we are going to be overrun.  Ladies and gentlemen, I do not exhort others to violence.  Armed conflict may be avoided for a few moments more, but that window is closing.  If this is to remain a free country, governed by its own inhabitants in the first successful implementation of self-governance on Earth, it is time now to draw near to you all whom you love and hold in high regard, to ensure that they finally know what is being done to them, and how it’s being done.  They will ask about motives. “Why would anybody want to…”  The motive is irrelevant now.  We don’t have time to talk about the “why” of it.  It’s happening.  Right now.  If you and they do not now engage, we will lose the country.  We will go out with a whimper.  The United States of America is under attack, and our time to defend her is now, and we must defend her on all fronts at once.  We are surrounded by enemies.

America is a country, and while people think of countries as being defined by geographical boundaries, language, and culture, the truth is that any country is actually defined most by its law.  The law is a nation’s expression of the meaning and purpose; boundaries and limits; language and culture.  To fully defeat any nation, an enemy must destroy all of those things, but destroy them most of all in the law.  To conquer a country is not so hard if an enemy is able to capture the law.  Ladies and gentlemen, our law is now a hostage held in the hands of a vile throng of black-robed villains who will not observe the law that had been written, but merely re-writes the meaning of the words printed on the page.  This attack had been subtle in its earliest days, but now it is in the open.  Most of us stand by, hardly noticing, but doing nothing.

Robert Mueller is the latest major tool of the attack on the United States.  He is setting the stage for impeachment of the President of the United States.  The Democrats in the House will use whatever he produces as justification for impeachment.  I want you to understand this now: When (not IF) Donald Trump is impeached, this will signal the final phase of the attack on our law and thus on our nation.  I want you to know that upon that moment, I will consider every person so-engaged an enemy of the United States, guilty of treason, and subject to the legal remedies thereto.  It’s not that I love Trump so dearly, but that I know he’s the last man in power over the government who is actually on our side.

Their Army is surging to our border.  For years, decades, they have been smuggling them into our nation in ones, twos, and tens.  They’ve done so by any and every means possible.  This is the army of their communist revolution.  They weren’t quite ready yet.  They hadn’t expected Trump’s victory.  They thought they would have a number of years yet to continue building their army.  It’s now known that since the amnesty of 1986, they’ve managed to smuggle twenty-nine million people into America. That’s an army large enough to challenge any nation on Earth, but it’s also enough to overrule you in every election.  They are on the cusp of thereby capturing the law.  Once they capture the law, there will be no stopping them.  We must stop them now, or the country is dead and will soon be buried.

Yesterday, Speaker of the House Nanci Pelosi(D-CA) was in Austin, Texas, to speak about immigration, among other things.  Among the myriad of ridiculous ideas of the Democrat (treason) Party she discussed, she said this:

“So, when we talk about newcomers, we have to recognize the constant re-invigoration of America that they are, that we all have been – our families…”

and then:

“And these newcomers make America more American. And we want them, when they come here, to be fully part of our system. And that means not suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America.”

Do you understand what she’s actually saying here? She’s telling you that they’re not going to wait for the immigration process and the limit that is citizenship in order to permit newcomers to vote.  Do you understand what she’s carefully intimating?  She wants to let illegal aliens vote in our elections.  That is the death of America.  They intend to get all of this done while impeaching the only President who has ever done anything to curtail their plot against the United States of America.

Ladies and gentlemen, if they are permitted to do this, America is over.  Do you understand?  It’s as desperate as that, and if your relatives and friends who generally prefer not to get involved in politics simply lay back and let this go, it’s over.  Within a decade, the country, which many of you already consider unrecognizable from a few years ago, will think you had landed in Guatemala or Venezuela.  There is no gated community in which you’ll be able to hide.  There’s no mountainside bunker in which you’ll be able to hold off the hordes.  This is being done, and if Trump is impeached, there is nobody left to stop it inside of government.  Pence won’t stop it.  As you’ve seen, there is not a single damned Republican in Washington DC who will stop it, unless his name is Trump.

Anybody who tells you different knows what they are telling you is a lie stated in an attempt to put you back to sleep.  Just a little longer.  They just need a little longer, and they just need Trump ousted, or paralyzed.  Your country is being overrun. Seventy-six thousands of immigrants last month! At that rate, your country will be dominated by illegal immigrants in no time.  Then, Nancy Pelosi and her cronies will make voting by non-citizens legal.  They will capture the law, and your country will be wrecked by the law.

Do you understand? It’s happening. They’re doing it to us. They’re using their power to make us submit. Once illegals vote, how long before the Second Amendment and the First Amendment are nullified or even amended out of existence?  It’s not my intention to provide a breathless commentary, urging you to action, but by all that is Holy, it is time for you to gather the family and friends ’round and tell them what’s really at stake.  Show them.  Take the time and show them.  Explain to them.  You have the ability.  My readers are not intellectually insubstantial people.  I know this from the quality of the emails and comments I receive.  You all know what’s happening.  The fact that I don’t particularly love Donald Trump’s past personal conduct is not going to prohibit me from having his back in this war.  He’s the last thing standing between us and the abyss.  He must know we have his back. All we patriots must say so, loudly, now, and with once voice.  We must make it so loud as to strike fear in the hearts of the enemy.  The enemy may not be stayed much longer, but if President Trump calls upon we patriots to defend the constitution, I will respond, as vigorously as my middle-aged body will permit.  We must retreat no further.

I will uphold my oaths. This, I will defend.

 

Editor’s Note:  A late-breaking bit of news on the legal front as Mitch McConnell now says he’ll use the “nuclear option” to get Trump’s nominees through the Senate. I wonder what sort of concession he’s managed to secure in exchange.  This is why we must support our President, lest he be backed into a corner.

The Deep State Wants a Crisis

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Be Prepared for Disaster

The partial government “shutdown” has gone on for a month.  The Deep State is becoming impatient and angry.  Democrats are claiming the people are with them, but that’s not exactly true.  The Deep State is with them.  It is the Deep State that is most affected by this partial shutdown, but the Deep State is also opposed to border walls.  The Deep State is preparing to create a false flag or contrived crisis or a national tragedy that will be used to cause President Trump to sue for peace.  They want it to be ugly.  The Deep State is out for vengeance, and its agents, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-CA,) have every intention of punishing the people of the United States to get their way.  Why do you think she and Adam Schiff-hole had planned to leave the country?  Safely out of the country, whatever happened to the people back home would not affect them.  The Deep State is angry now, and there’s every chance that it’s preparing to lash out.  Now is a time of danger for the country, not because Donald Trump wants to secure our border, but because the Deep State desperately opposes him.

The Democrats know they can scare the American people, thereby pushing them in the direction they need us to go.  The reason it works is because we continue to fall for it.  The specifics of the disaster the Deep State will create really don’t matter.  A terrorist attack?  A financial collapse?  A mass shooting?  A giant disturbance at the border?  Whatever it turns out to be, now that President Trump has shown that he’s not going to buckle, they’re got to find a way to drive him.  Remember that great admission of Rahm Emmanuel: “You should never let a crisis go to waste,” and the Deep State and its DC agents are more than happy to create the crisis.  The Atlantic article is just the basic preparation for this, so they can later claim “we warned you.”

This sort of stage-setting happens in media all the time.  It’s their way of trying to drive the herd.  If they get their way, they may be able to call off their plans, but more often than not, they don’t stop it.  It’s just too easy to cause harm to the American people and to drive them with fear.  Naturally, this is a big, complex, and dangerous world, so things can naturally happen without any Deep State involvement, but when I see the Atlantic running this sort of story, I know it has a point, and an audience, and the purpose is as I’ve described.  Don’t fall for it.

Pelosi could end this shutdown any time she likes.  Pelosi and her cohorts were willing to fly for a week to overseas locations while 800,000 federal employees go unpaid.  How can she and Adam Schiff-hole and the rest claim to care about the employees?  How can they claim to be negotiating?  It’s frighteningly obvious that Pelosi and her caucus aren’t willing to make a deal.  Some Democrats are getting wobbly, and for the most part, all except the most weaselly RINOs in the Republican caucus seem unusually committed (so far) to standing their ground.  This shutdown is really for all the marbles, and if President Trump doesn’t stand fast this time, he never will, and the Democrats will “run train” on him as insipid freshman Congress-commie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez intoned early last  week.

The Democrats are becoming desperate, and with Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health still in doubt, they’re apt to do anything.  I hope the Secret Service is diligent, because all that stands between a “President Pelosi” and us is the security of our president and vice president, and you know that left-wing nut-jobs seem to multiply these days.  The USSS is on the job vigilantly as their duties require, but I point out for the record that virtually all political assassins in American history were leftist nut-cases, whatever the philosophical leanings of the politician in question.  They are more than willing to overturn self-governance by assassination if they think it’s warranted, and leftist nut-jobs always think it’s warranted.  We mustn’t let them steal the presidency, whether by impeachment or by more grotesque and unlawful means.  The Deep State operators who are now beginning to face justice for their treasonous behavior.  There was no limit to what they would attempt by guile and subterfuge, but now, as the shadow of the hangman’s noose looms into view, they fear the wages of their treason, and whatever limits they might have observed are now completely irrelevant.  They need the crisis now in order to deny the justice they deserve, but if a crisis doesn’t arise on its own, they’re more than happy to provide one.

President Trump Makes the Case; Democrats: “No!”

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

In an Oval Office address on Tuesday night, President Trump delivered a simple, straightforward address.  In the address, he laid out the humanitarian, law enforcement, and national security case for building a serious border wall or barrier.  He left no ambiguity about the effect our border has on our nation, now essentially in an open and undefended state.  He refuted the notion put forward by incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) last week that the wall is “immoral.”  The President made it clear that what is immoral is the collection of DC politicians who refuse to help fund our nation’s security, leaving Americans wide open to being victimized by illegal aliens.  What was shocking about last night’s events was the response by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer(D-NY) and Speaker Pelosi.  The pair looked wooden, and scripted, almost Howdy-Doody-like.  Memes popped up on Twitter and elsewhere, and a lot of sport was had at the pair’s expense.  They accused the President of lying and “creating a crisis.”  After a few minutes, it was clear that they were making a political argument, but they were not addressing the crisis at the border.  First, here’s the President’s statement:

Then came the response by Schumer and Pelosi:

There were many memes, but this struck me funny:

American Tragic

There were many memes throughout the evening after the speeches, however, to return to the more serious matter of border security, it seems as though President Trump’s purpose was to lay out the case for actions he may be planning to take if Congress will not negotiate in good faith to build the border wall or barrier the country needs.  He may be forced to take emergency action, and if so, this address will likely have laid the groundwork for an emergency declaration with the American people should Congressional Democrats refuse to assist him in securing the country.

 

 

The DC Role-Playing Game Continues Over the Fiscal Cliff

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

Knuckle-draggers…

It’s as though it were a written script.  All the players are carrying out their performance with practiced expertise.  Given our past experiences with the leadership of both parties, one might guess that the outcome of the “fiscal cliff” crisis had been preordained.  It’s beginning to nauseate me to watch this same old crowd play the same old game without any hesitation.  Those of us who’ve watched these sorts of situations in the past have come to expect this sort of performance, as exemplified most recently the Debt Ceiling Deal of August 2011.  All of the actors know their lines, and the end of the plot will go as planned, while they throw in some plot twist for your entertainment.  As it seems we’re to be the endless butt of the insiders’ jokes, we might just as well prepare ourselves to be disappointed once again.  These people aren’t serious, and the leadership on the Republican side is downright hostile to conservatives, so we shouldn’t be surprised if they’re readying themselves to put another one over on us.  One can almost imagine the script, knowing the deal’s final composition has been determined already:

Boehner: “We’ll need to pass our own plan first, to blunt criticism from the knuckle-draggers.”

Obama: “I know, and I’m going to need to let Harry do most of my talking. Now John, just don’t be too rough on me in the press.  Throw in some of those tears-it drives your base berserk!  We’re still on for a round after the inaugural, right?”

McConnell: “I’ll let it leak to the press that I laughed at your offer.”

Reid: “Perfect! I’ll come out and say that the Republicans want to starve children and feed the rich their supper.”

Boehner: “Come on Harry, do you always have to lay it on so thick?”

Pelosi: “I just want to know if you’ll let me hold that gavel for a couple more years in 2013. We got rid of that dreadful Allen West, didn’t we?”

Biden: “Hey Barry, can I sit at the Resolute Desk while you’re in Hawaii? It’ll help me build my image for 2016.”

(Joint laughter.)

Obama: “Okay, John, let’s go with your plan.  You make the tough stance to get your folks aboard, but don’t blow it this time. They need to believe you gave it your all before caving.  The tears will help.”

Boehner: “Yessir, this ship is going down, and there’s no sense in getting people unnecessarily riled up. Let’s keep them busy with the deck-chairs, and when it all goes, they’ll never know what hit them.  Permit me to say, Mr. President, that you’ve been masterful this year.”

Obama: “Okay, we know what we have to do. We’ll say we did all we could. Questions?”

Boehner: “How long until we pull the plug?  Do we go all the way this time, ’cause I’d like to get sauced on New Year’s Eve.”

Pelosi(Laughing joyfully): “Oh, champagne! The bubbles always make me laugh.”

Reid: “I think we should keep them guessing, at least right up until Christmas.  We can probably work up another ‘Grinch’ deal with you as the star this time, Mitch.”

McConnell(Grumbling): “Why do I always have to be the heavy?”

Obama: “Because nobody’s going to buy a crying ‘Grinch.’ Other questions?”

Biden: “Has anybody checked out a 7-11 lately?”

All others: “Shut up, Joe!”

 Ladies and gentlemen, that queasy feeling in the pits of your stomachs can be explained not as some sort of premonition, but perhaps a little more like Déjà vu.  If it seems as though we’ve been here before, it’s only because we have, but in this case, even the names haven’t changed, because there are so damnably few innocents.  For those who may have forgotten how conservatives were betrayed in 2011, during the extended Debt Ceiling debacle, let me remind you that Speaker Boehner watched the House pass “Cut, Cap & Balance” knowing it would be killed in the Senate where he had already worked out the framework of a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Barack Obama.  In short, while we were prodding our members to stand fast, he had already pulled the rug from beneath us, and as was disclosed during the aftermath, it was done at the urging of Mitt Romney because he didn’t want to have this fight impinging on what he assumed would be his Presidential campaign, a strategy history now proves had been a failure.  At the time the deal was struck in July of 2011, I along with many other conservatives urged the Congress to stand fast, because we knew that this was an election issue any Republican nominee ought not give away.

The truth seems to be that there is never a “good time” to do the hard things in Washington DC.  There’s always another election “right around the corner,” and there’s always another excuse to kick the can down the road a bit more.  Rational people will have known that there’s really no time like the present to take up these issues, and if the House of representatives won’t exercise the power we’ve given it, there’s not much point in having this collection of perpetual losers on the payroll.  If Boehner and his bunch aren’t up to the fight, either due to coziness with Democrats in the DC establishment, or merely as a result of cowardly political calculations, we must at long last send them home.

The so-called “fiscal cliff” and any sequestration is really a small divot compared to the disaster looming with more unbridled spending.  Republicans complain that the media complex will blame them, and it most assuredly will, but it will also blame them if they go along and the economy flat-lines as the result of tax increases on the productive segments of our economy.  It’s long past time to simply acknowledge that the media is going to blame Republicans, right, wrong, or indifferent, and there’s no point in wasting time with all of this whinging about the state of the media.  The media is what it is. It’s awful. Life’s hard. Get helmets.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any leaders currently serving in Washington who are willing to stand up and make a case. Instead, they’re looking to cut deals, any sort of compromise at all, and they’re willing to poke you in the eye while they reach for your wallets [again.]  Whether things are quite so collegial as my imagined exchange above, the fact remains that when all is said and done, more will have been said than done [again.]

This is the way things are(or aren’t) done in Washington. As you sip your coffee, watching the Sunday shows, know that somewhere behind the scenes, Boehner and the boys are cooking up another sell-out, and the script is already written.  As your country, your children, and the prospects of both are being bankrupted, you don’t need to wonder whether disaster can be averted. It won’t be.  Our leaders will cut a deal that will permit them to carry on the charade a little longer, purchasing only one more installment of delay for the coming disaster borne by their inaction.

Note: The site had been experiencing some difficulties with the comment system.  I now believe it to be repaired. Thank you for your patience.

 

 

 

How Corrupt Is Washington DC?

Monday, November 14th, 2011

It's Worse Than You Thought

After a number of shocking disclosures including Nancy Pelosi’s Visa investments, and continuing scandals involving the President’s crony connections, what is becoming increasingly clear is that they don’t think they’ve done anything wrong.  So corrupt  has official Washington DC become that the people working there by and large do not see anything immoral in their behavior, since they may well have stayed within the laws.  Some are calling this “soft corruption,” but in truth, there’s nothing “soft” about it. That’s cold hard cash they’re raking in by virtue of insider information.  If you or I were to behave in the private sector as Minority Leaders Pelosi(D-CA) had behaved in her elected position, we would face imprisonment.  Of course, the larger problem is that Pelosi isn’t alone, and the corruption isn’t limited to Democrats.  As Big Government is reporting, Representative Spencer Bachus(R-AL) seems to have an uncanny ability to pick market winners with the most incredibly profitable sense of timing.  While his profits from the trading are small potatoes compared to Pelosi’s Visa profits, it’s indicative of how bad things have gotten.  On Sunday night, speaking with Stephen K. Bannon on his “Victory Sessions” radio show on KABC, Andrew Breitbart called for Bachus to resign.

How can we combat this?  These people have sworn an oath, and yet all too frequently, it seems the only allegiance they actually express isn’t to the people of the United States Constitution, but to their own wallets, and the purses of their cronies.  I believe we need to tighten up the laws on our Federal elected officials.  Peter Schweizer’s new book, Throw Them All Out, promises to reveal a number of instances of this pervasive corruption, and Spencer Bachus was just one of the people Schweizer’s book identifies as having serious problems.  The senior leadership of both parties in Congress have been playing this game for a long time, and this new book exposes the systemic breadth of the problem.  Throw Them All Out will be released officially on Tuesday.  Pelosi’s spokesman claimed that she’s not corrupt, and that the author of the book is merely a partisan attack dog, but if so, why did he go after Republicans too?

Since former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin began hammering on the issue of crony capitalism back in August, it’s become a more  visible issue.  Most people hadn’t really understood what all the fuss was about, or what the distinction between capitalism and crony capitalism really is.  They’re now learning. What can be done to curtail this sort of profiteering from elected office is another question.  Another complicated problem is how Congressional staff might also have access to confidential information, and thereby profit in the markets.  It’s difficult to know how we should draw the lines, and how to make rules difficult to circumvent.  After all, these are the people who write our laws, and if they can’t be trusted, neither can the laws they author be considered anything but suspect.  It makes one wonder about the political gamesmanship that goes on during crises, like the Debt Ceiling debacle of late July/early August: How might legislators have turned a profit from the wild gyrations of the market that they were effectively causing?  What about the S&P credit rating downgrade?  Who in Washington DC might have profited from that calamity?

These are all questions to which we must demand answers.  It’s not enough to simply pass campaign finance laws, because that hardly scratches the surface.  We must address the baseline of corruption that now seems to be the norm in our federal establishment, and it’s time we held our elected representatives to account.  If the people of Bachus’ or Pelosi’s districts don’t demand answers, it will provide us a new dilemma:  How can we defeat entrenched corruption when even the voters won’t eject their members of Congress?  We’ve seen this before.  It may well be time to do as Schweizer suggests:  Throw them all out. Now.

Here’s a nifty ad on the Pelosi Scandal:

Obamacare Already a Disaster

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

He Promised This Won't Hurt a Bit - He Lied

More than 4.5 million Americans have lost their employer-sponsored health-care insurance in just a little more than a year-and-one-half since Obamacare was enacted, reports Gallup.  This demonstrates the folly of Obamacare, and it makes plain why conservatives had been so concerned about the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”  This result was a virtual inevitability, and for those who think this is over, you’d better brace yourselves: By the time Obamacare fully takes effect, there will be roughly ten million more Americans who will file to receive it than had been projected, if the current trend continues.  Worse, if Boehner’s sell-out on a Balanced Budget Amendment happens, we’re going to see it used to fund all of this.  There really is no alternative: We must reverse this law by full repeal, or the price paid will be dear in tax-payers’ dollars and Americans’ lives.

Worse still, as Jeffrey H. Anderson, writing for The Weekly Standard points out, since the CBO projected that the number of people would go up by 6 million, they’ve already missed the mark by more than 10.5 million people.  The Congressional Budget Office, then controlled by Democrats Pelosi and Reid, created rosy forecasts in order to sell the bill to Congressional members and to the public, but the truth is that at the current rate of loss, we may be looking at projections that missed the mark by as much 15-20 million people.  This will be the ultimate budget-buster, but it will also create the situation about which conservatives have consistently warned, starting with Sarah Palin who denounced the “Death Panels” provided in the law(and for which she was mocked, but about which she was nevertheless correct.)  We are going to see a dramatically reduced quality of care, and we are going to see a sort of rationing that will be borne on the backs of the elderly and the infirm.  In short, under Obamacare, people will die much sooner on average than would have been the case had we merely left things alone.

This is the situation Barack Obama and his merry band of Marxists have intentionally created:  A poorer America, a shorter life expectancy, and more people than ever dependent upon government for every necessity of their lives.  Add to this the increasing social unrest we’ve been experiencing, and what you have is a recipe for the death of America, and the premature deaths of millions of Americans.

As Anderson reminds us, Obama promised repeatedly: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”  He lied:  You can’t, and you won’t.  Get ready.  With previously conservative judges like Laurence Silberman losing their minds on this case, it’s clear that only a repeal will save us from this mess.  That will only happen if we flip the Senate and get a real conservative President in 2012.  We’re literally in a fight for our lives, and the American people ought to know it.

You’re Being Robbed

Stealing The Future Uncovered

The crony-capitalism running rampant in the “green energy” initiatives of the Obama administration continue to escalate.  Today, it’s being reported in several media outlets that another three-quarter billion dollars in loans are being guaranteed by the federal government. Worse, some of the same people are involved including Steve Mitchell who was on the board of directors of Solyndra.  He also serves as a “board participant” for Solar Reserve, the parent company of Tonopah Solar.  The US Department of Energy provided another $737 million in guarantees to Tonopah Solar for a new project in Nevada.  As it turns out, Nancy Pelosi’s fingerprints are all over this too.

As we have suspected all along, the Democrats who had been in uncontested control of Congress and the White House until January 2011 have been looting the country. In short, you’re being robbed.  It’s not that anybody is surprised about it, but that the confirmation is just one more reason that Americans are to the point of complete frustration with their government.  Over the last few days, Democrats elites in Washington and around the country have clearly taught us the following lessons:

  • They think we have “too much democracy.”
  • That elections should be suspended to permit them to rule without consequence.
  • That our money is theirs to expropriate, steal, reward friends and relatives, and use as they see fit.

These politicians have always claimed that what they do, they do only for our best interests.  We should have begun to recognize that they hold our interests as irrelevant to their plans, and that any claims they make to the contrary are simple camouflage for the theft in which they’re engaged.  Who among us views the extravagant vacations of the whole Obama family as anything other than looting done under the cover of their position?  Let’s not pretend that they have any intention apart from a malevolent desire to cash in at our expense.

One of the most frightening aspects of what these incidents of crony capitalism and insider trading reveal are that this has all become quite routine in Washington DC.  Our elected federal leaders have no problem squeezing us dry, and ultimately discarding us when we’re used-up.  This can be the only real meaning of the voluminous bills that move from the House to the Senate and finally to the President’s desk for signature:  They are using every opportunity to steal from us.  Even if we imagine that we need some form of healthcare reform, even a grandiose vision like Obamacare, a notion I discard, is it truly necessary to engineer a piece of legislation that is thousands of pages long if it is only honest governance?  No.  As has been demonstrated since its passage, since we weren’t permitted to see it beforehand,  the law is laden with all sorts of set-asides, boondoggles, and instances of crony capitalism for which we will pay with our wallets and our lives.

Other pieces of legislation match this same description.  It cannot be that it takes thousands of pages to craft such laws, and yet the laws and the continuing resolutions and stimulus plans are packed with page after page of hand-outs to this company and that group and these individuals and the other state or locality.  As I’ve explained at length before, even the borrowing constitutes a theft as our currency declines in value in response to the wholesale printing.

Most rational Americans are frustrated to the point of exhaustion.  We must have reform, and it can only come at the ballot box, but this can only happen with the staunch and unflinching devotion of an American people moved to a house-cleaning frenzy.  We must rid ourselves of the old and intractable Senators who wield our dollars like a club over our heads.  We must remove this President who sees no problem with spending money on frivolous things while the country languishes in economic hardship to which he is a primary component.  Perhaps more importantly, however, we must confront another part of the government that few of us ever notice, because we focus on the elected officials.  In Congress, there is an army of staffers who use the laws that they author on behalf of their bosses in part to enrich themselves, generally with a wink and a nod from the elected members.

These people constitute the palace guard and the fox in the hen-house simultaneously.  They peddle influence and they use knowledge of the dark reaches of bills on page 2,214, Section 23x, where you will find the most outlandish things.  Just like the officials for whom they allegedly work, they’re a mixed lot.  Some are very decent and conscientious, but you could in no way consider that to be a majority of them.  The White House is full of similar people, and indeed the entire executive branch is overwhelmed with them, and the executive levels of the various departments and agencies are stuffed full of people who are there because they knew somebody or contributed something to somebody important.  This is the ugly back-side of Washington DC most never see, but it is there and quite prosperous nevertheless.  Did you wonder why it is that only Washington DC’s housing prices seem to continue upwards while the housing market at large has been in free-fall?  It’s much easier to afford nicer housing in better neighborhoods when the tax-payer is footing the bill.

In 2012, voters will face an awful set of choices.  If the country is going to survive, this gravy train must be derailed.  The DC insiders love to lament how the spending is unsustainable while they vote to continue it, but the truth is that as long as we leave them in place, it will be the American people who will bear the worst of this growing catastrophe. It’s no longer enough to simply change teams.  We must change the character of at least one of those teams, and we must clean up the supporting cast of characters too.  This will not be accomplished all in one wave, but we can make a great first installment next year.  For a change, we will all need to leave our comfort zones.  This must be a sharp reversal.  Time is nearly up.
