Happy Memorial Day

"Our own Country's Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions - The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth." --George Washington, General Orders, 1776

Bloggers Beware- by Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)

Just when you thought it was safe to start expressing your right to free speech, Democrats in Congress are gearing up for a vote on a new piece of legislation to blatantly undermine the First Amendment. Known as the DISCLOSE Act (HR 5175), this bill – written by the head of the Democrats’ congressional campaign committee – is their response to the recent Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In short, the Supreme Court found that the government could not restrict the free speech rights of individuals or other entities wishing to participate in the political dialogue.
It is hard to see how establishing a level playing field for free speech – as our Founding Fathers did by making it a right under the Constitution and which the Supreme Court upheld – is a threat to our democracy. Nevertheless, the White House and their allies on Capitol Hill see honest criticism as a threat to forcing their big government, liberal agenda through Congress. So, there is no time like the present – namely five months before an election – to start putting the muzzle on those individuals and organizations not sticking to the Democrats’ talking points.
Under the DISCLOSE Act, certain incorporated entities would be restricted in how they can exercise their free speech rights. There is an exemption for some in the media sphere like newspapers, TV news, and the like. However, there is one driving force in today’s public debate that is NOT exempt. Bloggers will not have the same exemption provided to other media sources. Never mind that the Supreme Court’s opinion in the Citizens United case stated, “Differential treatment of media corporations and other corporations cannot be squared with the First Amendment.”
For many bloggers to exercise their free speech rights, they would have to jump through the same onerous new hoops as many businesses, nonprofit groups, and even such threats to democracy as your local chamber of commerce. If this sounds like an absurd overreach by one party in power, I invite you to take a look at their government takeover of health care, taxpayer-funded bailouts, and general hostility to private sector economic growth.
The Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats have not racked up a stellar record of transparency and openness. For a White House that touted its willingness to engage critics openly in hopes of staving off greater partisan rancor, Obama’s team has endorsed backroom deal-making, special giveaways to garner support for their agenda, and a closed-door decision-making process that has the American people more fed up with Washington. Now, under their brand of leadership, they stand ready to stifle free speech via legislative fiat.
Democrats should not be allowed to give themselves carte blanche to shut down the ability of those in the blogosphere or elsewhere to participate in our nation’s collective dialogue. That flies in the face of our most sacred rights as American citizens.

Is the U.S. Government Planning War to Quell the Tide of Economic Unrest? by Gary D. Barnett

Is the U.S. Government Planning War to Quell the Tide of Economic Unrest? by Gary D. Barnett
Our economy, as is the case for much of the rest of the world’s economies, is currently imploding. Since all major economies in the world are based on valueless, un-backed, and worthless money, this situation should have been evident to the mainstream long ago. Of course the failing economy is just one piece of the puzzle, but it is most definitely the most important piece. With a so-called vibrant economy over the past decade or so, even though it was based on lies and deceit, and was a complete sham, the general population was easy to control during these so-called “prosperous” times. With the real economy now being exposed for the fraud that it is, and the real risks becoming more evident, the once complacent citizen is now becoming angry. Because of this, the evil U.S. federal government must find a new method of fooling the masses into believing in “their” government and country. War is the obvious answer, as war solidifies the putrid and false nationalistic worship of the peasants more than any other ploy.

Dollar supply drops to lowest point since 1930's

More spending like a drunken sailor on Obama's horizon. It seems that since the first round of stimulus spending has been an utter and complete failure, the only way to get out of this mess is to do it again. The Keynesian model of spending money to stimulate growth only works if the money you are spending is from savings, not loans. The current idea in the Obama administration is to spend even more borrowed money to stimulate the economy. The IMF has warned the USA that our debt to GDP ratio will rise from the current 90% to 97% by next year and then to well over 100% by 2015.
This is madness. It must stop and it must stop now.

The Case for Gold Book Review | Silver Monthly - The Silver Investor's Resource

The Case for Gold Book Review Silver Monthly - The Silver Investor's Resource

Leaving America by Aurelia Masterson

Leaving America by Aurelia Masterson
Tips on bugging out, if that's your thing. Personally, I have no intention of making myself a voluntary refugee. Masterson says there are no Patrick Henrys left in America, I beg to differ. They are here, they are awake and they are really pissed off.

Hey Calderon! Piss off.

"Felipe Calderon received liberal plaudits for falsely claiming Arizona's new immigration law uses racial profiling, but that wasn't the only baloney the Mexican president peddled during his state visit. Over four minutes of his Thursday address to Congress was spent lecturing Americans to renew the federal Assault Weapons Ban that sunset in September 2004. His justifications for the ban were all garbage. Mr. Calderon claimed that guns covered by the federal ban were particularly 'powerful weapons.' While the term 'assault weapons' may conjure up visions of military hardware, the inside guts of these feared guns are essentially the same as deer hunting rifles. The firing mechanisms in semiautomatics and machine guns are completely different. ... 'If you look carefully, you will notice that the violence in Mexico started to grow a couple of years before I took office in 2006,' Mr. Calderon said. 'This coincides, at least, with the lifting of the [U.S.] assault weapons ban in 2004.' ... Mr. Calderon's claim that 80 percent of guns used in Mexican crimes come from the United States is completely false. Most weapons seized in Mexico have traceable serial numbers that show they come from countries other than the United States. The 80 percent number reflects how many guns sent to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for tracing end up being from America. Most weapons seized in Mexico aren't transferred to U.S. authorities, so that figure is meaningless for calculating overall totals. It is offensive for Mr. Calderon to come here as our guest and make up facts to blame America for Mexico's many problems. But it was more frightening to witness Democratic House and Senate members jump up and give a standing ovation when the foreigner called for renewing the Assault Weapons Ban. That's a warning all American gun owners should heed." --The Washington Times

Chairman Zero Going Nanners? What do you think?

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at May 25, 2010 5:20 PM
Some of the commenters at Gateway Pundit are speculating that the reason Chairman Zero hasn't given a Press Conference in almost a year is because his handlers are afraid he's on the verge of a breakdown, and a meltdown in front of the press would be bad for business the Revolution.
Apparently, Chairman Zero has been very bitchy lately toward Republicans, toward his staff, and even toward his worshipful, fawning minions in the press.
Chairman Zero has been utterly in over his head. At first, I wasn't going to give him grief over the oil spill, but when I found out that he dithered over letting the state of Louisiana build sand berms to protect the shoreline, I decided to file it under "Obama's Incompetence," a file that's rapidly getting thicker than Keith Olbermann's psych profile. His incompetence has already led to multi-trillion dollar deficits, an utterly ineffectual response to the Euro Crisis, an overt hostility to border control, and utter failure to halt the Iranian nuclear program. Also, he can't close Gitmo, he can't shut down talk radio, and the stock market -- which many Obama fanboys had been pointing to as his success story -- has started going south.
This has got to be tough on a guy who has glided through life without ever facing any significant challenges or opposition.
Is he in over his head and starting to crack? What do you think?

State Rep. in accident with suspected illegal immigrant

State Rep. in accident with suspected illegal immigrant
Massachusetts, the "sanctuary state" that it is, now caught up in a bit of irony. It seems a state representative was involved in a serious car accident with a very intoxicated "suspected" illegal alien. The Latino man blew a .25 on the blood alcohol meter (nearly dead for normal people) and when he was informed that he was in serious trouble, he laughed at the state police. You see, in Massachusetts, your immigration status cannot be checked by state law enforcement. The drunk driver knows that he's safe and won't be deported.
Now this law maker in Massachusetts can have a little taste of what the rest of us are complaining about.

This should come as no surprise

Moody’s Reiterates U.S. Spending Risks Credit Rating (Update1) - Bloomberg.com: "May 25 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. government’s Aaa bond rating will come under pressure in the future unless additional measures are taken to reduce projected record budget deficits, according to Moody’s Investors Service Inc.
The U.S. retains its top rating for now because of a “high degree of economic and institutional strength,” the New York- based ratings company said in a statement today that was little changed from a credit opinion released in February. The outlook is stable, the statement said.
The government’s finances have been “substantially worsened by the credit crisis, recession, and government spending to address these shocks,” Moody’s analysts lead by Steven A. Hess wrote. “The ratios of general government debt to GDP and to revenue are deteriorating sharply, and after the crisis they are likely to be higher than the ratios of other Aaa-rated countries.”
Debt to revenue has more than doubled over the past three years and is now over 400 percent, which could lead to “potential stress” on finances, the report said."

U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

As of today the National Debt is up to $13Trillion. That's $42,025 per citizen, but since less than half pay taxes, that's $117,980 per taxpayer.
Debt to GDP ratio is now at 90.34%.
It is now time to fire every one of those buffoons in Congress. Hell, we may even want to string a few up. What would happen to someone who came into your home and took $117,980 by force, under threat of death or imprisonment? That person would be arrested and thrown into the deepest darkest cell in the prison. They might even let you share a cell with Bernie Madoff.
This is what your government has done to you. It's time to be angry. It's time to put an end to the insanity.

If political commentators really want to know what's fueling the anti-incumbency mood in the country right now, they have to look no further than the 2010 Census, the latest in the government's long train of abuses and usurpations against the American people. This isn't a government by the people, for the people and of the people – it's a government that is poorly run, criminally wasteful and which doesn't give a damn about the people. In other words, it's a government against the people.

» Faber: Nations Will Print Money, Go Bust, Go to War…We Are Doomed - Big Government

Today the leading Austrian economic think tank, the Ludwig von Mises Institute held a conference at the University Club in Manhattan in which Marc Faber, famed contrarian investor and publisher of the “Gloom, Boom and Doom Report” gave his perspective on the financial crisis and his outlook for the future.
Below are his main points and entertaining quotes:
Central banks will never tighten monetary policy again, merely print, print, print
Bubbles used to be concentrated in 1 sector or region in the 19th century, but off of the gold standard this concentration has ended
“The lifetime achievement of Greenspan and Bernanke is really that they created a bubble in everything…everywhere.”
“Central banks love to see asset prices go up,” and their policy reflects their desperation to perpetuate this
US housing bubble that Greenspan could not spot (even though he has recently spotted bubbles in Asia) stands in stark contrast to that of Hong Kong in 1997, where prices fell by 70%, yet none of the major developers went bankrupt; this was a result of a system not built on excessive debt like that of the US
“You have to ask what they were smoking at the Federal Reserve,” during the housing bubble, as prices were increasing by 18% annually when interest rates started to steadily rise in 2004
Over the last couple of years, when the gross increase in public debt has exceeded the gross decrease in private debt, markets have risen, whereas when private debt growth has outpaced public debt growth, markets have tanked

MEXICO VS. UNITED STATES: MEXICAN IMMIGRATION LAWS ARE TOUGHER « FactReal - be sure to click on the link to see Mexico's Law-hat tip to Jeff Doke

Calderon and all of his American Democrat supporters can just kiss my ass. I am embarrassed that he was not only allowed to make his anti-Arizona remarks, but also cheered on by the Democrats in Congress and the President of the United States. Obviously, he's a lot like our current bunch of idiots who criticize and misrepresent laws they haven't read, since it appears that he's never read the immigration laws of his own country. He has the gall to tell Arizona that the law is bad. Well, of course it is for him and Mexico since Billions of US Dollars flow from the USA through the illegal immigrants to the Mexican economy every year. Why else is there a Mexican equivalent of Western Union on every street corner in cities with high numbers of illegals?
I am embarrassed by our president and his flagrant disregard for the laws of the United States of America, The Constitution of These United States and the Sovereignty of the State of Arizona. This is supposed to be a country of laws; laws that apply to all, equally, not a country of whimsy. This president and his constant stream of apologies to dictators and tyrants is an embarrassment to the American People. He needs to "grow a pair" and stand up for the men and women of this country, put America and her interests above everything, including his own interests. He better do it soon, because we, as a people are growing weary of tyranny.

The Coming Sedition Act? by Robert Ringer

The Coming Sedition Act? by Robert Ringer
"… 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.
… 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." - Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

Well, that was how it was supposed to work. Just a few short years after the signing of the Declaration, Congress found it necessary to pass the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, which made it a crime for anyone to criticize the government ”through writing or any other shape, form, or fashion.”
If that weren't enough Congress, under Wilson, passed the U.S. Sedition Act of 1918. Among other things, the act made it a crime to ”willfully utter, print, write, or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of government of the United States, or the Constitution of the United States, or the military or naval forces of the United States.”

What sort of Sedition Act can we expect, and I do mean expect, under the Dear Leader, BHO?

Anyone who thinks that there is any difference between "hard debt" owed to other countries and "soft debt", the unfunded liabilities that we owe to ourselves through social programming is delusional. We will still be forced at the barrel of a gun to pay those debts equally.

He made no threat, only cited example. How is this any different than using the example of the Kennedy assasination? Those angles have discussed ad nauseum in classrooms, on television, in news reports, etc...
I am growing weary of the Politically Correctness in America. Use a little common sense folks and get off your high horse.

Woody Allen: Are his opinions relevent?

Woody Allen, the non convicted pedophile, maker of mediocre films, nude photographer of his adopted daughter that he later married, thinks that Obama should be granted the powers of dictator.
I'm sure Allen is serious in his desire for Obama to be dictator, but other than showing that he is as stupid as most of his films, he shows a complete lack of understanding of the fundamental design and construction of the government of the USA and why the processes are what they are.

Arizona: Home of the least secure border in the world

Take a look at the footage shot yesterday. In this motion activated camera footage, you can count 91 invaders in a matter of a few minutes.
This is an invasion, people. They may not all be carrying guns, but they do carry economic and biological weapons. The incidence of TB for instance is up 80% fro 1980's levels due to the influx of third world invaders from South of the border. The economic impact of illegals on the medical and education systems is well documented.
I think instead of cameras, maybe we should install machine guns. They would stop coming pretty quickly if we started actually "defending" our border.

Paul Krugman is a moron

Why Libertarianism Doesn’t Work, Part N - Paul Krugman Blog - NYTimes.com

You might have noticed this New York Times editorial by Paul Krugman. In it, he says that libertarianism doesn't work, and proves it by pointing to the ongoing BP oil spill.

So let me get this straight: liability caps, which are very un-libertarian, and incompetent regulatory bureaucracies, which are very un-libertarian, show us that libertarianism is...no good?

I think I've heard this one before. Didn't a lot of people point to the failures of the very heavily regulated banking system, and blame them on the free market?

It must be Opposite Day!

The folks at the Cato Institute have also commented on Mr. Krugman's remarks here and here.

This was published originally in the weekly Libertarian Party Monday message from Wes Benedict,Executive Director, Libertarian National Committee and I think he hits Krugman right right square on his pointy little head with his response.

Feds Bully Vermont Farmer

While thousands of illegals cross the southern border daily and the Feds do little to stop them, the same federal agency is bullying a Vermont farmer into selling part of his farm. The farm is located on the Canadian border and is a point of entry for about 3 or 4 cars per hour. If the farmer refuses to sell 5 acres of land to the government for $39,500, it will likely be siezed by "eminent domain".
I think the Feds have their priorities a little screwed up.

Tighten up

Another little tidbit on the tyrant Lincoln

Tom DiLorenzo on Abraham Lincoln, US Authoritarianism and Manipulated History

Thomas DiLorenzo: As a libertarian, I saw it as my duty to spread the truth about what a horrific tyrant Lincoln was, with his illegal suspension of Habeas Corpus and the imprisonment of tens of thousands of political dissenters in the North; his shutting down of over 300 opposition newspapers; his deportation of the leader of the congressional opposition, Democratic Congressman Clement Vallandigham of Ohio; and his purposeful waging of total war on civilians. He destroyed the voluntary union of the founding fathers and destroyed the system of federalism that was the hallmark of the original constitution by using military force to "prove" that nullification and secession were illegal. Might makes right. Unlike England, Spain, France, Denmark, Holland, Sweden, and other countries that ended slavery peacefully in the nineteenth century, Lincoln used the slaves as political pawns in a war that both he and the U.S. Congress declared to the world in 1861 was being waged for one reason only: to "save the union." But as I said, he really destroyed the voluntary union of the founders.

When in the Course of Human Events: Arguing the Case for Southern Secession

When in the Course of Human Events: Arguing the Case for Southern Secession


I was just watching "America: "The Story of Us""
And was stunned at the actual lack of Historical accuracy. They called in great historians like Sean "Diddy" Combs, Sheryl Crow and that amazingly popular beer summit attendee, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. All of whom seem to be experts in history of the south, why else would they be there?
I cannot believe how the History Channel distorted the history of the South, slavery and the events that lead up to the Civil War! They called the war- "The war over slavery"!!!!
I am sick of the South being portrayed in this light. The fact of the matter is that the war was fought over economics. The South paid the taxes, and they were spent in the North. The Union was no longer equitable for both parties. I will refer you to a few interesting facts:
Lincoln's first innaugural address, March 4, 1861
Apprehension seems to exist among the people of the Southern States that by the accession of a Republican Administration their property and their peace and personal security are to be endangered. There has never been any reasonable cause for such apprehension. Indeed, the most ample evidence to the contrary has all the while existed and been open to their inspection. It is found in nearly all the published speeches of him who now addresses you. I do but quote from one of those speeches when I declare that—
I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.
After reading "When in the Course of Human Events:Arguing the Case for Southern Secession" by Charles Adams, I have never looked at the South that I grew up in in the same light as the one taught to me by the NEA in the Public School System.
Seek the truth.

Fiat Currencies Are In Big Trouble

The Euro is going to disappear in due time. The Dollar will follow. There seems to be no end in sight to the raging bull of a commodities market.


This month the euro has come under extreme pressure following a Greek debt-crisis that threatened to spread across the continent, prompting policymakers to make available a $1 trillion rescue package, which Rogers said could spell the end for the European currency.

"It was a terrible thing to do, it ensures that the euro will disappear some day because now it means anyone can do whatever they like because they're going to be bailed out.

"I own the euro but after what they did the other day I'm having serious second thoughts. The euro will continue to corrode from within and someday we won't have a euro at all."

The eurohas fallen more than 7 percent against the US dollar in the last month and hit record lows against the Swiss franc on concerns that fiscal tightening in Europe will stunt economic growth.

The latest euro zone crisis has helped to pressure the price of some dollar-denominated commodities as they become more expensive to European buyers. But gold, often seen as a safe-haven asset has soared, hitting fresh record highs.

Rogers believes natural resource assets are a good investment because of their finite supply, leading to the theory commodities are in an extended or "supercycle" market rally.

"I certainly expect gold to go much higher over the next few years. Paper money is going to be debased and the price of real assets will be enhanced," Rogers said.

"I don't see the new commodity supplies coming that will end the bull market."

As crude oil supplies decline and governments focus on more ecologically friendly solutions to global power demands, the alternative energy sector is expected to grow.

"It's (alternative energy) a good investment right now. They've got a great, great future. Someday they may end the bull market in the energy sector," Rogers said."

Thousands of Nonprofits may be shut down by new tax law

More than 200,000 small nonprofits across the nation are days away from losing their tax-exempt status because they haven't filed a new form with the Internal Revenue Service.

"Many of these groups already operate on razor-thin budgets and some worry an unexpected tax bill could force organizations to close.

"The nonprofits in your backyards, some of them are going to be gone," said Suzanne Coffman, a spokeswoman for GuideStar, which tracks data on nonprofits.

It's most likely the nonprofits aren't aware of the Monday deadline that only applies to groups that report $25,000 or less in income, excluding churches. Those organizations may not find out until Jan. 1, 2011, when they're notified they have to pay taxes on donations they thought were exempt. And it could be months before their nonprofit status is restored."

Am I the only one who sees this for what it is? The government is forcing all private aid societies to lose their nonprofit status, either to force them onto the tax rolls or to shut them down. Either way the government wins and liberty loses. By shutting them down the government forces higher taxation of all individuals and assumes some of the role of the nonprofits. This, of course, leads to less individual wealth across the board, more inefficient bureaucracy and less service to the needy at a higher cost to all. The other option is that nonprofits who are already on a very thin budget are forced to pay taxes and offer less service to those in need.
Either way, the only winner is government, and the big loser is those who need the services provided by the nonprofits.

Do as I say, not as I do-

“It’s highly troubling that the Obama administration might propose to lengthen the time in which a potential defendant would come before a judge,” Mr. Romero said. “Both proposals would severely undercut the Obama administration’s assertion that they believe in the rule of law.”
The Obama administration is considering asking Congress to allow the DOJ to be allowed to manipulate the 5th and 6th Amendments, when it comes to terrorism cases. At what point does jaywalking or exercising Freedom Of Speech become "terrorism". This is beginning to look a lot like tyranny to me.

Rumor or Breaking News? Germany to Exit the Euro This Weekend.

Rumor or Breaking News? Germany to Exit the Euro This Weekend.
This could be, in Biden's words "A big fucking deal"

A fond farewell to my Uncle Bill

"All is well and right with the world, as far as the funeral goes anyway. My uncle Bill Johnson had dementia and was a real hand full for my aunt the last couple of years. He was a great guy, loved to fish, was a WWII Navy Fighter pilot and flew many missions in the South Pacific during the war. He was a member of Ancient Landmark Lodge 231 in Savannah, GA. He and my dad were best friends for many years and went through the Lodge officer's line together, my dad was Master in 1963.
He's gone on to a much better existance, since I can't imagine the one he was living was much like having a life. He had a living will and DNR orders standing, so after the Massive stroke last Friday, it was really just a matter of time. His widow seems to have an overwhelming sense of relief.
I'll miss him. He taught me how to weave cast nets when I was a kid, took me flying in a 1947 Taylorcraft airplane, that I believe is still in his garage. It ran on regular gas. He even landed on a rural highway on his way to Oshkosh to put gas in it. We used to fish together a lot when I was a kid. He enjoyed nothing more than being out on the river. He's buried in Bonaventure Cemetary in Savannah, 200 feet from the bluff, overlooking that river he loved so much.
God rest his soul."

Gerald Celente: The Banks Are Robbing The People

The turmoil that has stricken Greece has spread to Romania and Ireland. This crisis may be spreading worldwide as the debt crisis continues, there have been reports that it may spread to Japan, one of the biggest economies in the world. Gerald Celente says that this is the greatest bank robbery in history and it is the banks that are doing the stealing.

The nanny state is growing

There is now a bill before Congress, introduced by Rep Ron Kind (D-WI), to monitor the Body Mass Index of all American children between the ages of 2-18 to stem the rate of obesity in children. Or so they say. More nanny state regulation is all this amounts to.
People no longer even want to be personally responsible for their, or their own children's health. They want the state to take over that function for them.
This bill would also move the nutritional information box from the back or side of a a package to the front, so it can be seen while you scan the shelves. I assume because any consumer is too stupid to pick up a box of cereal or can of beans, turn it around and read the nutritional information and make a choice of whether to buy it or not. Does anyone read the nutritional information now? I doubt that the people in question either read or understand any of that information as it is. So what does moving it to the front do for you? It reduces advertising space for the manufacturer of the product. We wouldn't want capitalism or profitability to get in the way of reading nutritional information, now would we.
I suppose that this new bill will allow for some sort of financial penalty for parents of obese children. This penalty will likely be waived by those below the poverty line (who also have the highest incidence of childhood obesity) and will only be another tool of the Marxist regime's wealth redistribution scheme.

Government cannot create "jobs"

"Check your facts, Mr. President," U.S. House of Representatives Republican leader John Boehner said in a statement. "More debt, higher taxes, and bigger government may be President Obama's idea of a 'jobs program,' but it's hurting our economy and making it harder to put people back to work."
It is not possible for the government to create a "jobs". The government is a leech. The only way for the the govt to provide anything to anyone is by taking it from someone else. They dont' create, they transfer wealth from one individual to provide a salary for another. I'm sick and tired of it.

More Ex Post Facto Law From The Dear Leader

In another unconstitutional play, Obama is planning to push another punitive tax. Another ex post facto punitive law. Oil companies face an immediate tax rise of 1 cent per barrel to help to pay for the clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico under proposed legislation rushed out by the White House yesterday.
That cost will, of course, be passed to consumers not the oil companies themselves. And what about after the clean up? Will the tax be removed? Just like the tolls you pay to cross the George Washington Bridge into Manhattan, the bridge has cost of the bridge was paid back years ago, but the toll keeps rising. Once a scheme is in place to bring revenue into the federal government, it stays in place due to the bureaucracy built up to administer the new revenue. We can't put those people out of work, now can we?
This is only the beginning. These environmental taxes will continue to be levied, without a vote in congress, through powers granted to the EPA through regulations.

Clintons, typical liberals

By 2007, seven years after leaving the White House, the Clintons had earned a combined $109 million (£73 million) through speaking engagements and bestselling memoirs. Even so, apparently they would prefer American voters to settle Mrs Clinton’s remaining $771,000 debt rather than paying it themselves.
Seriously? They earned $109 million and won't pay off the $771K she still owes? Obviously, the typical statists they are, they would rather someone else pay it off for them. What a pompous ass. Would anyone really want to spend the day with that creep?

Kevin James, uh, Elena Kagan not too keen on gun rights

Kagan Said She Was `Not Sympathetic' Toward Gun-Rights Claim - Bloomberg

Kagan in a note to Justice Thorgood Marshall: "The man’s “sole contention is that the District of Columbia’s firearms statutes violate his constitutional right to ‘keep and bear arms,’” Kagan wrote. “I’m not sympathetic.”
She also had this to say:
“There is no question, after Heller, that the Second Amendment guarantees individuals the right to keep and bear arms and that this right, like others in the Constitution, provides strong although not unlimited protection against governmental regulation,”

This leaves the door wide open for several new controls on gun ownership. I would hazard to guess that she is very much in favor of a national gun registry, followed by bans of certain types of firearms, say semi-automatic rifles and handguns, then bans on certain types of accessories like scopes and flash suppressors. A national registry is the first step toward out and out confiscation. If you register them, the government will know where to find them.

As Thomas Jefferson so eloquently put it, "Those who beat their swords into plowshares, will plow for those who do not." I plow for no man but myself.

"On Wednesday, Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Joe Lieberman (I-CT) plan to introduce legislation designed to inflate the cost of energy, strain family budgets, and decimate America's manufacturing sector -- all in the name of supposedly saving the climate."

Sure, why not. The economy is in the toilet, so lets stack on some additional taxes and costs of goods and services. The oil spill in the gulf conspiracy theory draws out an awful lot of anger from the left, but the timing on reintroduction of the Cap and Trade legislation is kind of coincidental, don't you think?

Congressman Paul, long the leader in American public life for sound money, sound banking, and the free market, talks about the progress of his Audit the Fed bill – and why the Fed, the Treasury, and the banksters fear it. He also discusses the crisis in Europe and especially Greece, and the Fed’s sinister and secret role. We know why the Fed wants its secrets kept safe from the American people, about what banks and other institutions it bails out by printing new money. But why do they so fiercely resist a physical audit of the gold at Ft. Knox and the vaults of the NY Fed? What are they hiding? Did far more US gold flow overseas under LBJ and Nixon than is admitted? Has some or all of the remaining gold been sold, though it is still physically in the US? Ron Paul, and all of us, wants some answers.

Breaking: Obama Administration Removed Faisal Shahzad From Terror Surveillance List Before Attack …Update: Faisal Had Contact with Awlaki, the Taliban

More hope and change…Faisal Shahzad was removed from the national terrorist surveillance list before the Times Square attack.(CBS News)
The Strata Sphere is all over this story.
Confessed terrorist Faisal Shahzad was removed from the Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list sometime after Barack Obama came into office.CBS reported:
Sources tell CBS News that would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad appeared on a Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list – Traveler Enforcement Compliance System (TECS) – between 1999 and 2008 because he brought approximately $80,000 cash or cash instruments into the United States.
The New York Times reported that the person who bought Faisal’s apartment back in 2004 was interviewed by federal investigators.
George LaMonica, a 35-year-old computer consultant, said he bought his two-bedroom condominium in Norwalk, Conn., from Mr. Shahzad for $261,000 in May 2004. A few weeks after he moved in, Mr. LaMonica said, investigators from the national Joint Terrorism Task Force [JTTF] interviewed him, asking for details of the transaction and for information about Mr. Shahzad. It struck Mr. LaMonica as unusual, but he said detectives told him they were simply “checking everything out.”
Barack Obama began shutting down Bush-era terrorist investigations last year including the investigation of Faisal Shahzad.We all know what happened next.Last week Faisal almost blew a hole in the middle of Times Square.The only thing that saved the people of New York was Faisal’s incompetence.
UPDATE: Faisal Shahzad had contacts with several other terrorist leaders including the radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki, the Taliban Chief, and the Mumbai Massacre mastermind.ABC reported:
Shahzad also had a web of jihadist contacts that included big names tied to terror attacks in the U.S. and abroad, including the figure who has emerged as a central figure in many recent domestic terror attempts – radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki.
Besides Awlaki, sources say Shahzad was also linked to a key figure in the Pakistani Taliban, its Emir Beitullah Mehsud, who was killed in a drone missile strike in 2009. The Mehsuds had been family friends of Shahzad, who is the son of a former high-ranking Pakistani military officer.

Why Liberals really hate the poor.

The Liberal Assault on the Poor by Jacob G. Hornberger
Liberals say that they love the poor, needy, and disadvantaged. Unfortunately, however, the economic philosophy that liberals favor constitutes a direct assault on the economic well-being of the poor, along with nearly everyone else in society.
Liberals claim to combat poverty in two principal ways.
First, they use the force of government (e.g., income taxes) to take money from those who have earned it in order to give it to the poor.
Second, they restrict people’s use of their property to enable the poor to have access to such property.
What liberals fail to understand, however, is that the very means they choose to combat poverty – socialism and interventionism – actually exacerbate the problem that they claim to address. Their war on poverty hurts the very people they say they are trying to assist.

When Cowards Have Power- L.Smith

How did it come to pass that cowards obtained such a grip on power in the third millennium, and why do others choose to follow them? It is apparent to me that the majority are not mesmerized by the rhetoric of these weak human beings, but too many appear to blindly follow their lead like lemmings into the sea.

Maybe it started in the Middle East, with Hamas and Hezbollah. Sometime after the Arab-Israeli wars of 1967 and 1973, after being roundly defeated by their hated enemy, the Arabs decided that it would be fruitless to attempt to defeat the infidel by conventional (and honorable) means. Instead, some compassionate mullah from the Peaceful Religion of Islam decides that more damage can be heaped upon their enemy by lobbing rockets randomly from afar, or by using their own brainwashed youth to murder innocents as they take their own lives. Why? Because they are afraid. Afraid to face their enemy, because they know they will lose. Ask yourself: Why didn’t Yasir Arafat ever sacrifice himself for the glories of Mohammed and heavenly virgins? Why does Osama bin Laden spout his brave diatribes from the safety of a mountain cave? Why was Saddam Hussein found hiding in a hole in the ground? They want to convince others to die for Allah, but no-no, not them. They’re way too important to sacrifice themselves. Are there any Muslims who ask these questions? It seems so obvious!

The blame for this behavior could be placed on the nature of their culture. From an early age, men are taught to dominate the weaker gender – force all females to hide themselves, keep them from learning, kill them when they have the audacity to think for themselves (“She brought shame to the family!”). It is akin to the 200 pound sixth grader who embarrasses and humiliates the bespectacled third grader. Yeah, buddy. You’re real brave. Why don’t you try it with someone who might actually fight back?

These emasculated Arab wimps are afraid to face their enemy like a man. Why did Abu Musab al Zarqawi behead his victims in Iraq while they were tied up and being held down? Why not give the infidel a knife, have the two of them face off in a cage fight, and stream the video to the world, so that all may witness the awesome power of the Warriors of Allah? Simple! Because al Zarqawi has (correction: had) less testosterone than my castrated dog. These pansified she-men are not going to risk their lives for the glory of Islam. After all, how would it look to the rest of the world if the great and powerful Allah failed to protect his loyal servant in the face of the heathen American?

Examine for a moment the teachings of Christianity with those of the Peaceful Religion of Islam. Jesus said, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13). Whereas I am no authority on the teachings of Mohammed, his deranged mullahs are preaching, “Greater love for Allah hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life and take as many innocent men, women, and children with him as possible.” A first grader could easily explain the differences in philosophy. One praises the sacrifice of life to save another’s, the other praises the sacrifice of life by taking others. One is good. One is bad. It doesn’t take Aristotle to decipher the logic.

And now, forces have embarked upon the Pussification of America. The wimpy pacifists have arrived in positions of power here, and the results of their utopian, negotiation-filled, cartoonish fantasy-world policies are disastrous. Our president bows before foreign leaders and apologizes for our country on the worldwide stage. He kowtows to the demands of Russia in Eastern Europe and refuses to use the term “Islamic Terrorist”. The snobby, condescending, hyper-sensitive media has managed to push the limits of Political Correctness to the level of insanity.

How long before someone – anyone – in Washington calls these Left-Wing Americans and Radical Muslims out for what they are? Cowards. Sissies. Sugar britches. No, we get represented by the meek Lindsay Graham (“but he’s bipartisan!”) or the weak-kneed and weak-voiced Harry Reid (“the war is lost”).

It all reminds me of the Hans Christian Andersen story The Emperor’s New Clothes, where two weavers knit the Emperor a new suit, using magical threads that are invisible to those who are incompetent or “just hopelessly stupid”. Afraid to look like an idiot, no one says anything until a child points out what is evident, “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!”

That’s where I feel like we are today in this country. Afraid to be condemned as a bigot or racist or xenophobe, no one states what is painfully obvious. If only someone with the intestinal fortitude of our founding fathers would stand up like that innocent child and scream the truth until everyone heard: “But most terrorists are Arab!” “But we have a lot of oil right here!” “But they’re here illegally!” “But nuclear power is clean and cheap!” “But all he’s ever been is a Community Organizer!”

The great masses of voters in this country are in Red State America. Would you like to get elected President of the United States in 2012? Here is your platform:

· Call Islamic Jihadism what it is, and start profiling Arabs and Muslims.
· Drill for oil here like there’s none anywhere else in the world.
· Implement the Fair Tax and abolish all other taxes.
· Call out the media for the liberal, weak, arrogant fools that they are (think Ronald Reagan).
· Undo every government program installed by the current socialist administration; then begin dismantling the others.
· Build up the National Defense in such a way that negotiation with adversaries is no longer a part of our foreign policy. Nations will act appropriately or deal with the consequences.
· Redefine the word “bipartisanship” to mean abandoning principles in favor of a solution.

In short: Grow a pair.

Jefferson on taking up of arms

"With hearts fortified with these animating reflections, we most solemnly, before God and the world, declare, that, exerting the utmost energy of those powers, which our beneficent Creator hath graciously bestowed upon us, the arms we have compelled by our enemies to assume, we will, in defiance of every hazard, with unabating firmness and perseverance employ for the preservation of our liberties; being with one mind resolved to die freemen rather than to live as slaves." --John Dickinson and Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of the Cause and Necessity of Taking up Arms, 1775

Washington Times - Bank bill could help feds snoop, GOP warns

Washington Times - Bank bill could help feds snoop, GOP warns
"While his bill seeks to shield taxpayers from getting stuck with the tab should major banks run into trouble in the future, Sen. Byron L. Dorgan, North Dakota Democrat, plans an amendment to prevent companies from getting so big that they would need taxpayer aid in the first place. His amendment would force firms to divest of the parts of their business that made them too big."
I guess this falls in line with the President's comment of "at some point you've earned enough money"? Lets think about this for a minute. Say you own a newspaper-"You may now only sell 3 pages of advertisement, but keep the paper the same size" or a gas station- "you many now only sell 100 gallons per day" how about being a writer- "you may now only sell 100,000 copies, maximum, for any book you write"
What country is this?

Ex Post Facto Law

The U.S. Constitution's Article 1 Section 9, C.3 states: 'No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed,' and Section 10 says: 'No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law. . . .'
The 'words and the intent' of the Ex Post Facto Clause encompass '[e]very law that changes the punishment, and inflicts a greater punishment, than the law annexed to the crime, when committed.' Calder v. Bull, 3 U.S. (1 Dall.) 386, 390 (1798) (opinion of Chase, J.).
An ex post facto law is a law passed after the occurrence of an event or action which retrospectively changes the legal consequences of the event or action.
Obviously any law, Ex Post Facto, from the Latin meaning-"from after the action", is hereby Unconstitutional in nature. I think we can all agree on that, yes? So how is it that a law was passed to force AIG executives to return bonuses through punative taxation? How is it now that the same people who were screaming that Arizona's new immigration law is a violation of Constitutionally protected rights, garaunteed by the 4th Amendment, are the same people who are lining up to support legislation called "Big Oil Bailout Prevention Act" that would raise the economic damages liability cap for offshore oil spills from $75 million to $10 billion.
As White House spokesman Robert Gibbs put it on Monday the Obama administration will "keep a boot on the throat" of BP to make sure the company stops oil from a sunken rig from pouring into the Gulf of Mexico as soon as possible. (Would that be a Jack Boot, there Gibbsy?) If that doesn't all add up to Ex Post Facto legislation, I don't know what does.
If the Constitution of The United States isn't equal for all, then it is equal for none. If those in Congress expect to continue to pass laws for some and not others, as they see fit, then law is no longer a rule but a whim and our Republic is actually a Dictatorship.

Feel Sorry for BP? - Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr. - Mises Institute

Feel Sorry for BP? - Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr. - Mises Institute

BP will be responsible for cleanup costs far exceeding the federal limit of $75 million on liability for damages. The public relations nightmare will last for a decade or more. In the end, the costs could reach $100 billion, nearly wrecking the company and many other businesses.
It should be obvious that BP is by far the leading victim, but I've yet to see a single expression of sadness for the company and its losses. Indeed, the words of disgust for BP are beyond belief. The DailyKos sums it up: "BP: Go f*** yourselves." Obama's press secretary, Robert Gibbs, said that the government intended to keep "its boot on BP's neck."
How about reality? The incident is a tragedy for BP and all the subcontractors involved. It will probably wreck the company, a company that has long provided the fuel that runs our cars, runs our industries, and keeps alive the very body of modern life. The idea that BP should be hated and denounced is preposterous; there is every reason to express great sadness for what has happened.

Stocks Slide, Euro Weakens on Government Debt Concern - Bloomberg.com

Stocks Slide, Euro Weakens on Government Debt Concern - Bloomberg.com
If you had money in the market, I hope you pulled it out last week and not today. As the Greek debt bailout begins to pull the Euro and Dollar down, the stock markets around the world started losing as well. The losses since the Greek bailout have erased any stock gains of the last 12 months, and it seems to be continuing.

Bernanke Concurs With Ron Paul That Fed Monetizes Debt

Bernanke Concurs With Ron Paul That Fed Monetizes Debt
If you think the problems of debt in Europe are of importance, you had better pay attention to what Bernanke admits to in this video.
The Federal Reserve Bank admits to creating money out of thin air in order to monetize the debt of the USA. The same Federal Reserve Bank who is charged by Congress with managment of our currency has essentially devalued every single dollar in circulation, and more importantly in savings. The Fed is stealing your wealth by diluting dollars. Inflation signals have already started cropping up.
Last month inflation across the board was around 2%. Wholesale food prices are up last quarter by 49%, the largest single quarter rise in prices in 30+ years. This is nothing compared to what will happen when people start catching on to what the Fed has been doing.
With sound money, there is little to no inflation of prices, ever. When every single dollar in circulation was backed by gold, as is required by the Coinage Act of 1792, prices remained very stable in America. Since the creation of the Federal Reserve Banking System, the US dollar has lost 97% of it's value against the value of real goods.
I would suggest everyone read "What has the government done to our money: The case for a 100% gold dollar" by Murray Rothbard

Store Shelves Stripped, Some Fight For Water - Boston News Story - WCVB Boston
This was just a minor disruption in water service. People were fighting in stores trying to get bottled water. Store shelves emptied and more fighting as new shipments arrived at stores.
Most people are not prepared to do without running water or stocked store shelves for more than a day or two.
There will be food and water shortages. Be prepared.

Federal Govt Fail

Despite the emergency action plan, in place since 1994, the Federal Govt failed to stock the "fire booms" required to contain the oil spill.

Great, More Punitive Taxation

While it's true that the federal Oil Pollution Act, enacted in 1990 in response to the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska, makes BP responsible for cleanup costs, the law caps the company's liability for economic damages — such as lost wages, shortened fishing seasons or lagging tourism — at $75 million, a pittance compared to potential losses.
Administration officials insist BP will be held responsible anyway, noting that if the company is found negligent or criminally liable, the cap disappears. Claims also can potentially be made under other state or federal laws, officials said.
Yet the liability cap is problematic enough that a trio of Democratic senators introduced legislation Monday raising it to $10 billion, and the administration quickly announced its support. Sens. Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey and Bill Nelson of Florida voiced concerns that unless the cap is raised, BP would avoid paying for the mess and leave small businesses, local government and fishermen with the bill.

Someone had better let President Obama in on the secret

Rich Fuentes-American Thinker

Whoops! There has been a federal government plan in place since 1968 to deal with major oil spills. The info is on the EPA website. Someone should've told Barack Obama and Carol Browner to check the EPA site two weeks ago!! What exactly is Carol Browner's responsibility in all of this as head of the EPA?? National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan Overview.Thomas Lifson adds:Considering the source (Erica Werner of Associated Press!), this artricle is amazing, debunking Obama's claim that ahve been involved since Day One of the oil spill.When the AP stops covering for Obama, he is on trouble.

CBS Features NY Mayor Bloomberg Speculating Bomber Was Mad About ObamaCare NewsBusters.org

Oh how there must be a collective groaning, moaning and gnashing of teeth in the media and the Obama administration right this very moment.
Turns out the WHITE MAN in the Times Square video may not be so white after all. Sounds as if he could be a PAKISTANI.
They're brown muslims in general -- although the Indian subcontinent as a whole, does value whiter, paler skin tones in its peoples. Mmm, that's a bit r wordish, methinks.
You just KNOW that Obama and his lickspittles in the media desperately wanted the "bomber" to be WHITE-ISH SO they could blame Tea Party "supporters".
Oh well, that's the last we'll hear of THAT news item.
