Meet Your Democratic Leadership

This video shows one of the authors of the health care care bill, Senator Max Baucus, on the floor of the Senate. Baucus as per this video is either drunk or an idiot. He stumbles, mumbles, and makes little sense. Perhaps the only way you can get through this 2,000+ page bill is by taking a few hits on the bottle.

Normally, using the word “insane” (a definition of insane is someone utterly senseless, or irrational) in place of a person’s real name would be called a slur, but when you analyze all that Pres. Obama has said and done this past year – the term “insane” fits him to a tee.

Let’s see what he has said over and over again which wasn’t true, in fact, a lie. He stated over and over that his administration would be the most transparent ever – not true as his operatives and his Congress have developed a health care bill, without any G.O.P. input, behind closed doors – no transparency there, is there? He also said that the negotiations for his high priority bills (health care, for instance) would be broadcast on C-Span – again a falsehood, as if it wasn’t obvious to an aware person with normal intelligence. In addition, he said any legislation would be available on the internet for at least 5 days before it is voted on – that, of course, didn’t happen, I wonder why?

Remember when the “Messiah” (a/k/a Barack “Insane” Obama), said that people earning under $250,000 wouldn’t pay “one more dime in taxes” – no ifs, ands, or buts – how did that promise pan out? I don’t think average wage earners who use tanning parlors would agree with that claim? It’ll cost them 10% more for getting that gorgeous tan. Maybe that’s one way of putting tanning parlors out of business.

In trying to add 30 million people to the health insurance rolls, the “Anointed One” said it wouldn’t raise our deficit; in fact, it would lower our deficit, as he put on his rose colored glasses in making that pronouncement. I’m sure you buy that claim, don’t you? Of course you do, if you’re stupid?

Then we come to the hot topic of global warming – he said we will, and the entire world, would be in a major environmental crisis if we don’t act immediately to cut down on carbon dioxide emissions caused by human activity – of course that’s true, because we all breathe in oxygen and breathe out the dreaded “pollutant” carbon dioxide. Every scientist knows that carbon dioxide is a plant food, but not “non-scientists” like Nobel Prize winner Al Gore, who is counting his obscene money profits by conning people into believing his “Convenient Lies” (his book was misnamed “An Inconvenient Truth”) of man-made global warming and apocalyptic climate change.

The list goes on and on, but according to the “Lame Stream Media” it really doesn’t matter that Obama lies or fudges on the truth, as they have a vested interest in keeping Barack “Insane” Obama from failing at his job as Commander in Chief and as President. It’s too bad the media didn’t have the same feelings for former Pres. George W. Bush – but, then again, they didn’t have a vested interest in him, only abject loathing and ridicule. Yeah, that was fair and balanced. C’est la vie!

Letter to Senator Ben Nelson

The following is an excerpt from a letter sent by a Nebraska physician to Senator Ben Nelson, one of the last Democratic holdouts who accepted the bribe from Obama and Reid to vote for the health care bill. It is amazing how the Democrats have bribed, threatened, and coerced to get this bill though the Senate. The entire letter can be read at http://michellemalkin.com/2009/12/20/a-nebraska-doctors-message-for-ben-nelson/

I’m a primary care doctor in YOUR state, and you sold me out. I didn’t slog through 4 years of college and 4 years of medical school and 3 years of residency just to have you hand my career and my patient/doctor relationships over to government lifers. Your gutless acquiescence to Obama and Harry Reid and ‘Nanny’ Pelosi will NOT be forgotten.

Thank you, Ben, for forcing doctors like me to earn less than the repairmen who fix our appliances. Case in point: We recently had our dishwasher fixed. The repairman who came to our house charged $65 just to come and ‘diagnose’ the problem, then charged another $180 to ‘fix’ the problem. You and your fellow lawmakers have fixed MY going rate (Medicare) at $35 per-visit. Thank you for securing such a ‘lucrative’ rate for me! Thank you so much for making me–someone with 8 years of education!–make less than a mechanic or appliance repair technician. And thanks especially for falling in line with Obama and the rest of the Democrats to make such a socialist system permanent.
You have my disgust and disdain forever, you socialist-coddling coward.

Could not have been said better. I wonder what kind of doctors we will be in store for us when after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars and so much work they can look forward to making $35 a visit - less than the Maytag repair man.

It has been said about President Obama that you can take the man out of Chicago, but you can’t take Chicago out of the man. To some of his most avid supporters that is a slur against the president, but to any observant person who is watching what is going on in Washington, it is an apt description of what is actually happening.

Back during the Presidential campaign in 2008, stories came out about the people who were associated with that obscure candidate out of Chicago called, Barack Hussein Obama. Most all of those personal contacts and friendships were with people from Chicago and with the notorious Daley political machine. The main stream media (except Fox News) pooh-poohed these relationships as meaningless as compared to the message “their” candidate was trying to deliver – meaning a total “transformation” of the United States of America, “change” was the word. To question him or his ideas meant that you were probably a “racist” and therefore not credible.

All of these nefarious Chicago relationships including Rev. Jeremiah Wright, an anti-Semite and black liberation preacher, Father Phleger, a radical Catholic priest, Bill Ayers an admitted unrepentant, domestic terrorist, Tony Rezko, a convicted felon who helped Obama buy his house, Louis Farrakhan, a white hating Black Muslim, Blago, the disgraced former Governor of Illinois, and his present close advisors in the White House, Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, and Valerie Jarrett, are all on the public record as being close to him as he rose up the ranks in the Chicago political machine. What a motley crew of radical extremists? In addition, Obama is a disciple of the late radical guru, Saul Alinsky, whose home base, was also Chicago. He was the author of the book, “Rules for Radicals” which Obama used in becoming a “community organizer” and an ACORN trainer.

Once Obama was sworn in as President, he continued to add more Chicago cronies and radicals to his Administration including Van Jones, an avowed communist, Cass Sunstein, a far-left professor, Anita Dunn, an admirer of mass murderer Mao Tse-tung, Kevin Jennings, a gay activist in charge of school safety, and a host of other leftist ideologues named as presidential czars with no congressional oversight whatsoever.

The way things “got done” in Chicago seems to be the modus operandi of the current Obama Administration. The heavy-handed process of do as I say, and leave no prisoners, and marginalize any dissenters in order to shut them up, is the “Chicago-way” and now seems to be the “Washington- way” of doing things. That’s the way Obama, and his minions, are going against Fox News, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the insurance Co’s in trying to shut them up. How un-American is that tactic? It seems that Obama is more inclined to wage war on Fox News than he is in waging war against Al-Queda and the Taliban. What a waste of presidential effort while our brave military men and women are in harms way in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Just recently, it was reported that in order to get his health insurance “reform” measure passed in the Senate, the “Chicago-Way” of doing things politically was used to get some balking Senators to vote the “right- way”. Both Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Co.) were told, in no uncertain terms, to vote the “right-way” or they would lose funding for some state projects, and in Ben Nelson’s case, military base closings in Nebraska was mentioned if he voted the “wrong-way”. Mary Landrieu was offered $300 million dollars to use for projects in her state to vote the “right-way”. Is this political bribery? Of course it is, but what would you expect from a Chicago-bred politician. That’s business as usual. What a disgrace!

It seems that all President Obama is capable of, instead of meaningful acts and decisions, is making speeches laced with platitudes and fuzzy feelings. As the wise old saying goes – “Action speaks louder than words” doesn’t seem to apply to this Administration. His answer to everything is that he is trying to clean up the mess he inherited from the previous Administration – he takes no responsibility for the lousy things that have happened under his watch these past eleven months. The Bush Administration is the reason things are going downhill, not the policies and indecision of Obama. That’s leadership?

A big smile, lofty rhetoric and a nice family are not enough to get things done – we don’t need another “Chicago on the Potomac” – we need a president that can make decisions and take responsibility for his actions in an honest and open way. He is making Jimmy Carter look good in comparison – god forbid!

AARP and Obamacare

Jason Matera, from the Young Americans Foundation, has done another excellent job of showing the hypocrisy of the left. This time he takes on the AARP. See the very entertaining video below.

As you may know the AARP sells medigap insurance policies and pockets over $400 million a year from the sale of these policies. The AARP has fallen in line with Obamacare and has endorsed it 100%. In public the AARP decries the waiting time penalties for existing conditions for seniors - but the insurance policies it sells imposes even longer waiting time periods for existing conditions - even longer than other insurance policies require. Another example of liberal hypocrisy: follow what I say not what I do.

Whenever voters get frustrated with our politicians, the chant of “let’s start a third-party” ramps up as a means of changing or getting rid of the politicians who are causing the frustration.

Depending on whether the proposed third-party candidate is either liberal or conservative, it is political suicide for whichever party the third-party is most aligned with, in the normal scheme of things. In recent years, strong third-party candidates have made a big difference in a few presidential elections. In 1992, the third-party candidacy of H. Ross Perot siphoned off enough votes from Pres. George H.W. Bush to hand the election to Bill Clinton with only 43% of the vote. Even though the “flaky” Perot hit a nerve with the voting public, he garnered about 19% of the vote; the votes he got would’ve, in most cases, gone to Pres. Bush, the Republican candidate.

Again in the 2000 election, a strong third party candidate, especially in the State of Florida in the person of Ralph Nader, the third-party candidate swung the election to George W. Bush. The votes that Nader received in Florida were mainly from liberals who would’ve voted for the Democrat Al Gore if Nader was not on the ballot. Bush won the popular vote in Florida, and its electoral votes, by just under 600 votes, so Nader was the difference in Bush winning Florida. Also, another quirk in that election was a place on the ballot for the “non-candidate” Pat Buchanan, a conservative. The Palm Beach County Democrat election commissioner designed a “butterfly ballot” which was supposed to make voting easier for the many senior citizens in the county, but which, unintentionally, caused a lot of confusion as many people voted for Pat Buchanan by mistake in a district that was overwhelmingly Democrat. Pat Buchanan got around 4,000 votes that most likely would’ve gone to Al Gore, which also would’ve put him over the top to win the Florida electoral votes. To this day the Democrats claim that the election was “stolen”, but they refuse to admit that it was the stupidity of their voters that caused the end result.

Today, we have talk again, mainly on the Republican side, to marginalize the “liberal” members of the party. Normally, the Republican Party is a party of fiscal and social conservatives with a minority of members who are more liberal on the social issues like abortion and immigration. These RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only), as they are sometimes called, cause a lot of uncertainty among the majority of rank and file Republicans. This is working its way out in the Republican senate race in Florida between the more liberal Charlie Crist and the more conservative Marco Rubio. If either candidate (who loses in the primary) decides to run as a third-party candidate, it would be a disaster for the Republican Party of Florida. That’s what the Democrats are hoping and praying for.

It would be a disaster if the leaders try to purge these liberal Republicans as that would assure the election of Democrats for many years to come. The Democrats tend to band together in a common cause to defeat Republicans, whether they are on the party’s liberal side or on the more conservative “blue dog” side of the party. The members of either party, not the party bosses, should determine who they want to represent them. When the party members make their choices, the party should then rally round the candidate chosen by the rank and file. Each party is big enough to have a “big tent” to accommodate various viewpoints within the party. As Ronald Reagan once advised, if I can agree with 80% of a candidates views, he said he could support him/her. That’s the 80% solution that should be followed by the Republicans in this coming election cycle.

So, the talk of starting or endorsing a third-party candidate, is to my mind, an exercise in futility for the people backing that electoral disaster called a third-party or a third-party candidate.

Like Obama, I am a graduate of Harvard Law School. I too have Muslims in my family. I am black, and I was once a leftist Democrat. Since our backgrounds are somewhat similar, I perceive something in Obama's policy toward Israel which people without that background may not see. All my life I have witnessed a strain of anti-Semitism in the black community. It has been fueled by the rise of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan, but it predates that organization.

We heard it in Jesse Jackson's
"HYMIE town" remark years ago during his presidential campaign. We heard it most recently in Jeremiah Wright's remark about "them Jews" not allowing Obama to speak with him. I hear it from my own Muslim family members who see the problem in the Middle East as a "Jew" problem.

Growing up in a small, predominantly black urban community in Pennsylvania, I heard the comments about Jewish shop owners. They were "greedy cheaters" who could not be trusted, according to my family and others in the neighborhood. I was too young to understand what it means to be Jewish, or know that I was hearing anti-Semitism. These people seemed nice enough to me, but others said they were "evil". Sadly, this bigotry has yet to be eradicated from the black community.

In Chicago, the anti-Jewish sentiment among black people is even more pronounced because of the direct influence of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Most African Americans are not followers of "The Nation", but many have a quiet respect for its leader because, they say, "he speaks the truth" and "stands up for the black man". What they mean of course is that he viciously attacks the perceived
"enemies" of the black community - white people and Jews. Even some self-described Christians buy into his demagoguery.

The question is whether Obama, given his Muslim roots and experience in Farrakhan's Chicago, shares this antipathy for Israel and Jewish people. Is there any evidence that he does? First, the President was taught for twenty years by a virulent anti-Semite, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. In the black community it is called "sitting under". You don't merely attend a church, you "sit under" a Pastor to be taught and mentored by him. Obama "sat under" Wright for a very long time. He was comfortable enough with Farrakhan - Wright's friend - to attend and help organize his "Million Man March". I was on C-Span the morning of the march arguing that we must never legitimize a racist and anti-Semite, no matter what "good" he claims to be doing. Yet a future President was in the crowd giving Farrakhan his enthusiastic support.

The classic left wing view is that Israel is the oppressive occupier, and the Palestinians are Israel's victims. Obama is clearly sympathetic to this view. In speaking to the "Muslim World," he did not address the widespread Islamic hatred of Jews. Instead he attacked Israel over the growth of West Bank settlements. Surely he knows that settlements are not the crux of the problem. The absolute refusal of the Palestinians to accept Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state is the insurmountable obstacle. That's where the pressure needs to be placed, but this President sees it differently. He also made the preposterous comparison of the Holocaust to Palestinian

Obama clearly has Muslim sensibilities. He sees the world and Israel from a Muslim perspective. His construct of "The Muslim World" is unique in modern diplomacy. It is said that only The Muslim Brotherhood and other radical elements of the religion use that concept. It is a call to unify Muslims around the world. It is rather odd to hear an American President use it. In doing so he reveals more about his thinking than he intends. The dramatic policy reversal of joining the unrelentingly anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and pro-Islamic UN Human Rights Council is in keeping with the President's truest - albeit undeclared red - sensibilities.

Those who are paying attention and thinking about these issues do not find it unreasonable to consider that President Obama is influenced by a strain of anti-Semitism picked up from the black community, his leftist friends and colleagues, his Muslim associations and his long period of mentor-ship under Jeremiah Wright. If this conclusion is accurate, Israel has some dark days ahead. For the first time in her history, she may find the President of the United States siding with her enemies. Those who believe, as I do, that Israel must be protected had better be ready for the fight. We are.

Why does the “loony left” go crazy when they refer to Sarah Palin? What was the sin that she committed to cause them to vent so much vitriol and vituperation toward her? Who are these new “misogynists” and why do they go bonkers about Sarah?

It cuts across the sexes – it seems the new misogynists are equal opportunity Sarah bashers. Females Maureen Dowd, Naomi Wolf, Rachel Maddow, Sally Quinn along with the sexist males like Keith Olbermann, David Brooks, Bill Maher, David Letterman, are all hung up on the mental capacity of Sarah Palin and why she should be considered to be a political lightweight and worse.

Just over a year and a half ago, Sarah Palin was a very popular governor of the great State of Alaska. She was known as a feisty chief executive who wasn’t afraid to stand up to the powers-to-be, including her fellow Republicans. The people of Alaska loved her and her approval rating was in the upper 60’s. All this positive evaluation changed when candidate John McCain chose her to be his running mate.

Thrust into the spotlight, the media was caught by surprise and it caught the Democrats by surprise as well. Her acceptance speech at the Republican convention got rave reviews and jump started a morose McCain campaign. It took about a “whole” week before the barbs and arrows started to be aimed at Sarah. Right after the Republican convention, the McCain – Palin ticket was neck and neck with Obama and it stayed that way, because of Sarah, until the Wall St. meltdown occurred. It was downhill for the McCain – Palin ticket after that and no amount of Sarah charisma could bail them out in the race for the presidency.

Sarah became the super star, gathering standing only crowds wherever she went and spoke on the campaign trail. But, she couldn’t overcome the bland, flawed candidacy of John McCain who was heading up the ticket.

The trashing of Sarah focused mainly on the personal rather than on the political. She personally came under attack for her speech patterns, her clothes, her Alaskan lifestyle, her colleges, her pregnant daughter, her husband and her religious beliefs. It seems the Democrats panicked upon seeing this unknown woman governor from a far-away state getting so much positive attention. The opposition sent up hordes of investigators and lawyers to Alaska to get the “dirt” on Sarah Palin. Everybody who had an interaction with her was ripe for the pickings for these “goon squads” who were dispatched to the wilds of Alaska.

What was it that troubled her attackers so much? The main one seemed to be that she was ardently religious and anti-abortion. That’s a terrible “sin” in the eyes of the “loony left” liberal progressives. Also, the elitist feminists looked down upon her lifestyle which included being able to use a gun and go hunting and being able to ride a snowmobile. That surely didn’t fit the mold of the “man-hating” Park Ave. feminists. Of course, her conservative political views also opened her up to attack and belittlement. Finally, it seems that the fact that she was a very good looking, attractive woman caused the below average looking liberal women plenty of angst and caused their vocal derision directed toward Sarah. You could say that “envy” raised its ugly head to try to bring Sarah down.

Today, Sarah has made a tremendous comeback with a blockbuster book and tour. The jackals are coming out of their den and the vitriol has again emerged, but this time, she is free to take them on without the restraints of abiding by the campaign staff that she had no control of.

She’s back and still driving the liberals crazy. Go Sarah go. Give ‘em hell!

Walking Eagle

President BARACK OBAMA was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upstate New York.
He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every Native American issue that came to the floor of the Senate.
Although President Obama was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”
At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented Obama with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.” The proud President then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser, waving to the crowds.
A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to the President.
They explained that “Walking Eagle” is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.

When talking about climate change (global warming), the rhetoric, over the past few years, has been soaring in its condemnation of humans who are accused of contributing to its awful consequences. There’s only one thing wrong with all the highfalutin rhetoric, it is all wrong and overly alarmist. It is a hoax!

Al Gore claimed that “global warming” was “settled science” and produced a documentary on the subject that contained over 8 factual errors, as found by a British court which ruled on a lawsuit about showing that film to British school children. That ruling was never answered by a haughty Al Gore, who has had no training as an environmental scientist.

Just recently, it was learned that the “renowned” Climate Research Unit, at the University of East Anglia in England, was “hacked” and its hacked e-mails showed that the climate scientists, who were supposed to be on the up-and-up, were in fact “cooking the books” to justify their alarmist theories about man-made global warming. It was not just an isolated incident, but a coordinated effort to “dupe” the world into thinking something that really wasn’t true.

Now with the Copenhagen Conference on Climate Change coming up and President Obama planning to attend, the “con game” might finally be exposed for what it is, a gigantic fraud. The climate change “deniers”, who have been dumped upon as right-wing kooks who want to reward polluters and to punish the sanitizers of our planet, are now being touted as the truth tellers in this controversy. The tide is turning as more and more information is made available about the so-called “Greens” who have been sent down from heaven to save the world from the greedy Capitalists. Would Al Gore fit the mold of a greedy capitalist as he has made tens of millions of dollars pushing his global warming agenda and scare tactics and he plans to make many more millions of dollars if the “Cap and Trade (Tax)” bill is passed in the Congress and signed by the President?

In this era of the Bernie Madoff’s and other scam artists, the environmental scam artists fit right in. Follow the money and you’ll see greedy “pseudo-socialists” like Al Gore, George Soros, and the European Union (with the exception of the Czech Republic), all with their hands out wanting a piece of the pie.

It’s funny; these environmental alarmists never mention the possibility that Mother Nature might have a major hand in any changes that may occur on our planet. The fact that our world climate has been cooling since 1998 doesn’t faze the global warming fanatics at all. It’s full steam ahead and to hell with the facts, their political agenda takes precedence over anything else.

As the hackers of the e-mails of the University of East Anglia have shown us, you can spout impressive rhetoric, but not come up with any scientifically meaningful reform. When a hoax is exposed, as has been shown, the countries of the world should admit they have been duped and conned and now should move on to a serious climate discussion without the phony documentaries and wild rhetoric of doom and gloom, scaring the heck out of the world’s population. The “chicken littles” of the environmental movement have little or no credibility in the scientific world. There is no “settled science”, as Al Gore would want us to believe, on this subject, as nature is the final determinant of what happens environmentally on our planet, not an SUV.

95 Year Old Gives Pres. Obama Hell

To: President Barack Obama

November 24, 2009

This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don't believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WWII retiring as a Master Chief Bos'n Mate. Now I live in a "rest home" located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.
So here goes.
I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish. I can't figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends & enemies despicable lies like:
" We're no longer a Christian nation"
" America is arrogant"
Your wife even announced to the world, " America is mean-spirited. "
Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.
I'd say shame on the both of you, but I don't think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said," America hasn't lived up to her ideals." Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?
Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn't mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom. I don't think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don't, I'll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue.
You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more.
You mean you don't want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight?
You don't mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don't want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you're the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job.
When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you're not in this fight to win, then get out.
The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you're thinking of.
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president. You're not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That's not our greatest threat. Losing the
heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don't want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.


Harold B. Estes

Do any of you really believe that if these health care proposals are passed in the Congress and signed by the President, that we will not add trillions of dollars to the deficit, and that health care will be improved for the average citizen? If you don’t believe it, then you should be taking a crash course in Economics 101? Well, that’s what the politicians (Democrats) who are pushing ObamaCare (it really should be called Pelosi-Reid Care) are trying to have us believe. Are we that stupid? Any high school student (at least a high school student with brains, like 20 or more years ago) can tell you that you can’t spend over a trillion dollars a year and 10 trillion dollars over 10 years and not raise the deficit. And in addition, not ration health care to all sectors of the population, especially its senior citizens. They both go hand in hand. It is all “smoke and mirrors” on the part of the Democrat majority to try to appease their “loony left” liberal base and to fulfill an
“unfulfillable” campaign pledge.

If you are against “ObamaCare”, you are labeled as a heartless and uncaring person because you don’t agree with the Democrat form of health care. How can you shove something, as big as a government takeover of 1/6 of our economy, down people’s throats because you won the last election? Yes, elections do have consequences, but over 60 million voters didn’t vote for Obama. Should their voices not be heard because of the election of Obama? These pieces of health care “monstrosities”, which are being debated in the Congress now, are being proposed without any input, at all, from the Republican side. Every time the Republicans tried to offer an alternative, they were voted down and the process was then continued under closed Democrat doors. Is this the transparency that Obama talked about during the campaign? Is he a uniter not a divider?

How do you figure that these cabals of Democrat lawyers (practically all the movers and shakers of these proposals are lawyers) know anything about health care, except maybe how sue a doctor for malpractice? On the Republican side we have about 5 Senators who are medical doctors. Were their input requested in the drafting of these budget-busting health care proposals? Of course, they were not lawyers like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Hoyer, Schumer etc. etc. What do they know?

You will see a backlash in 2010 like you’ve never seen before, even greater than the off-year election of 1994. All those Tea Party and Town Hall protesters weren’t out there by the hundreds of thousands because they were “told” to be there, they were out in force because they realized they were being bamboozled by the far-left “Loony Tunes” crowd of pseudo - Marxist “snake oil salesmen”. We must, peacefully, show our angst by voting out of office, both Congressmen and Senators, who have put their own political party and their job security ahead of those they supposedly represent, who are you and I the taxpaying public.

We all want and need health care reform, but we don’t want or need “bad” health care reform. Just by calling something “reform” doesn’t make it “reform”. So let’s get rid of the “smoke and mirrors” and get serious by offering a bi-partisan piece of legislation that we all can agree on and not have something shoved down our throats like what is happening now. If that happens, mark my words, the voters will shove it up their butt in 2010. Now go out and do the right thing!

An open letter to my Senators & Congressman

It amazes me that you haven't suffered middle finger fatigue for the many times you have given us the bird.

I have to keep reminding you, you are in my employ and not my boss!
I hired you to represent my interests not yours!

You seem to have forgotten your job description. It isn't going on phony fact finding jaunts overseas, living high and spending most of your time fund raising for your party and re-election. It's not following an administration with an apologetic president, sub servant to countries wishing to weaken our status and influence among nations, denigrating and subordinating his office by bowing low before heads of lesser states.

Your job is to keep America on top, and figure how to improve the lot of the less fortunate by not transferring the toils of others into their pocketbooks, or bankrupt the country, but to provide opportunity for them to earn it.

Your Vegas style method of throwing our tax money at every problem is a crap shoot and never solved anything. A drunken sailor spends his own money, but you squander our money to bribe the gullible with unnecessary projects benefiting no one but your ego and legacy with your name carved in stone, or etched in bronze plaques. In the old days, debtors were put in jail, and you have shamelessly put us all in debt.

When are you going to uphold the constitution you swore to when you first took office?

In reviewing your performance, I find it unsatisfactory, and if things don't change by November 2, 2010, I'm gonna have to terminate you.

Taxes on Reid's Insurance Bill

If you like to pay taxes, you will love the new health "reform" bill being pushed by Senate Leader Harry Reid. Just take a look at the document prepared by Americans for Tax Reform. Click here http://www.atr.org/userfiles/111809pr-comptaxreid%282%29.pdf

If you don't want to have medical insurance below is the penalty you will face. I just wonder under the Constitution how you can force a person to buy medical insurance if he or she does not want it.

Other tax savings result from taxpayers no longer being allowed to use Flexible Savings Accounts to pay for non-prescription medications such as aspirin, Tylenol, etc.

Other hidden taxes are placed on drug companies, medical device manufacturers, and health insurance companies. In other words, Reid thinks total costs will go down despite the fact that he is trying to impose taxes on those who provide or insure health care. I guess Reid also believes in Santa Claus and thinks these companies will pay these taxes without passing them on to the consumers.

Also, the ability to take itemized medical deductions would be increased to that in excess of 10% of adjusted gross income.

There is also a 5% tax on elective cosmetic surgery. I wonder how the Botox Queen, Nancy Pelosi, will react to that.

Reid claims that the bill would reduce the federal deficit but to accomplish this we would have all of the above taxes go into effect - plus there would have to be a 23% reduction in fees paid to doctors and medical care - something that has never happened in the past.

Instead of trying to make the poor, rich, we’re hell-bent on trying to make the rich, poor. Obama has stated publicly that he “wants to spread the wealth around”. That’s right out of the Karl Marx playbook. If the Obama Administration gets to “transform” our society and economic system, under those precepts, we will be on the road to social and economic ruin. The signs are all around us, the government is taking over the banks and other financial institutions, they have gotten an ownership stake in two of our largest auto companies, and it is trying to take over 1/6 of our economy by instituting government-run health care, and, in addition, they are trying to stifle dissent by trashing and belittling Fox News, and by talking of re-instituting the “Fairness Doctrine”, which is a direct assault on the First Amendment of the Constitution.

What makes everything so confusing is that Obama says all the right things in his eloquent, tele-prompter delivered speeches, but it is in his actions that contradict what he says. He sends mixed messages to the people – telling them what they want to hear, but surreptitiously doing the opposite behind closed doors and our backs.

Why wouldn’t or couldn’t he make the life and death decision to deploy additional troops in Afghanistan, like his hand-picked 4-Star general advised, in a reasonable time frame? He seems to have a mental block when it comes to making important decisions. This trait goes back to the time he was a legislator when he voted “present” over 130 times. Whether that was done for political reasons doesn’t matter, by procrastinating and equivocating when he faces important decisions, that is not the mark of a dynamic, forceful leader. He is in over his head and he doesn’t realize it because of his inflated ego, and he is caught up in the trappings of the office of the president and not its responsibilities.

Slowly but surely you see many of his early supporters getting an advanced case of “buyer’s remorse”, but it may be too late to reverse the damage that his policies might or will cause to undermine the principles that has made the United States the pre-eminent country of the world.

Look at the gaggle of radical people that he has surrounded himself with. From Van Jones to Anita Dunn to Cass Sunstein to Mark Lloyd to Kevin Jennings to Carol Browner, and his flunkeys from Chicago like Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett etal. Some are admitted communists and socialists and some are just Chicago-style politicians. Whatever they are called, it is scary, to say the least. When others criticize him or members of his administration, they immediately become eligible to be included on his “enemies list” and the vitriol that that designation will entail. All this is done with a smile and speeches full of empty platitudes of what a great country we have. Many people can’t see these telltale signs of oppressive behavior, because of their liberal ideology that blinds them to the facts. The word “racist” is thrown about by his most ardent supporters in describing his detractors. It is not the color of his skin that is the problem; it is how “thin” it is.

If we can’t overcome this “class warfare” maneuver on the part of the Obama Administration, we will be susceptible to becoming a third world country without us even realizing it. Beware of wolves dressed up in sheep’s clothing.

Conservative Quote of the Day

Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic, who lived under Soviet Communism, said the following:

"Communism and environmentalism
- we are talking about two ideologies that are structurally very similar. They are against individual freedom. They are in favor of masterminding of our fates. They are both very similar in telling us what to do, how to live, how to behave, what to eat, how to travel, what we can do and what we cannot do. There is a high similarity in this respect".

He should have some knowledge of this matter as he lived under Communist rule for many, many years.

Are we stuck on stupid, or what? The Attorney General, with the acquiescence of President Obama, has decided to try captured “illegal combatants” who were responsible for the devastation of 9/11, in our courts with all the legal protections that our judicial system offers. They will be tried in front of a jury of their “peers”, which might mean that sympathetic Muslims might be part of the jury hearing the evidence.

Is this the way we should proceed or are we giving these “evil” killers a platform to proselytize their religious and political beliefs? This ignominious decision on the part of the Obama Administration, to try these “terrorists” in our courts, maybe should be held in the Bronx Zoo instead of the Federal Court House in New York, as that is what this decision will inadvertently be encouraging by taking the prosecution out of the hands of a military tribunal. Why do we always seem to grasp defeat out of the jaws of victory by doing stupid things under the vague guise of being “fair” to our sworn enemies? Mark my words, this “show trial” will be a circus as defense lawyers will be using all the legal safeguards that our citizens are entitled to and apply them to these international terrorists (illegal combatants). Giving them Miranda rights, following the rules of evidence of how we prosecute ordinary criminals, and, as mentioned before, they will be tried before a jury of their “peers”. Does that mean that the jury pool must have a Muslim or Muslims as part of the jury panel? Remember, under our legal system, in a criminal trial, all jurors must agree on a verdict of guilt. All that is needed for a mistrial is one vote of “not guilty” to thwart the process of gaining a conviction, and in this case, giving the victims of 9/11, deserved justice. That is a real possibility when we bring this prosecution to our court system instead of trying them before a proper military tribunal.

When our present Administration refuses to use the term “terrorist” when describing members of a group of people hell-bent on killing us and anyone they consider an infidel, you know that the insidious term
“political correctness” has raised its ugly head again. What purpose, other than for political considerations, was behind this “stupid” decision? What kind of secret evidence will be exposed to the world and other terrorists during this show trial? Will our tactics in interrogation of these suspects (who have already admitted guilt) be used to discredit us in the eyes of our enemies? You and I know that we will be put in the worst possible light by the defense lawyers and the organizations that support Muslim organizations around the country and around the world. We will be made out to be the criminals and the real criminals (the terrorists) will be put forth as the victims.

I ask the question again, are we stuck on stupid, or what? The answer seems to be a resounding “yes” and heaven help us in overcoming this absurdity on the part of our elected and appointed officials. Shame on them!

“Tragedy at Ft Hood”

Written by Allen West
This past Thursday 13 American Soldiers were killed and another 30 wounded at a horrific mass shooting at US Army installation, Ft Hood Texas. As I watched in horror and then anger I recalled my two years of final service in the Army as a Battalion Commander at Ft Hood, 2002-2004.

My wife and two daughters were stunned at the incident having lived on the post in family housing.

A military installation, whether it is Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, or Coast Guard, is supposed to be a safe sanctuary for our Warriors and their families. It is intended to provide a home whereby our “Band of Brothers and Sisters” can find solace and bond beyond just the foxhole but as family units.

A military installation is supposed to be a place where our Warriors train for war, to serve and protect our Nation.

On Thursday, 5 November 2009 Ft Hood became a part of the battlefield in the war against Islamic totalitarianism and state sponsored terrorism.

There may be those who feel threatened by my words and would even recommend they not be uttered. To those individuals I say step aside because now is not the time for cowardice. Our Country has become so paralyzed by political correctness that we have allowed a vile and determined enemy to breach what should be the safest place in America, an Army post.

We have become so politically correct that our media is more concerned about the stress of the shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The misplaced benevolence intending to portray him as a victim is despicable. The fact that there are some who have now created an entire new classification called; “pre-virtual vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)” is unconscionable.

This is not a “man caused disaster”. It is what it is, an Islamic jihadist attack.

We have seen this before in 2003 when a SGT Hasan of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) threw hand grenades and opened fire into his Commanding Officer’s tent in Kuwait. We have seen the foiled attempt of Albanian Muslims who sought to attack Ft Dix, NJ. Recently we saw a young convert to Islam named Carlos Bledsoe travel to Yemen, receive terrorist training, and return to gun down two US Soldiers at a Little Rock, Arkansas Army recruiting station. We thwarted another Islamic terrorist plot in North Carolina which had US Marine Corps Base, Quantico as a target.

What have we done with all these prevalent trends? Nothing.

What we see are recalcitrant leaders who are refusing to confront the issue, Islamic terrorist infiltration into America, and possibly further into our Armed Services. Instead we have a multiculturalism and diversity syndrome on steroids.

Major Hasan should have never been transferred to Ft Hood, matter of fact he should have been Chaptered from the Army. His previous statements, poor evaluation reports, and the fact that the FBI had him under investigation for jihadist website posting should have been proof positive.

However, what we have is a typical liberal approach to find a victim, not the 13 and 30 Soldiers and Civilian, but rather the poor shooter. A shooter who we are told was a great American, who loved the Army and serving his Nation and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) stating that his actions had nothing to do with religious belief.

We know that Major Hasan deliberately planned this episode; he did give away his possessions. He stood atop a table in the confined space of the Soldier Readiness Center shouting “Allahu Akhbar”, same chant as the 9-11 terrorists and those we fight against overseas in the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of operation.

No one in leadership seems willing to sound the alarm for the American people; they are therefore complicit in any future attacks. Our Congress should suspend the insidious action to vote on a preposterous and unconstitutional healthcare bill and resolve the issue of “protecting the American people”.

The recent incidents in Dearborn Michigan, Boston Massachusetts, Dallas Texas, and Chicago Illinois should bear witness to the fact that we have an Islamic terrorism issue in America. And don’t have CAIR call me and try to issue a vanilla press statement; they are an illegitimate terrorist associated organization which should be disbanded.

We have Saudi Arabia funding close to 80% of the mosques in the United States, one right here in South Florida, Pompano Beach. Are we building churches and synagogues in Saudi Arabia? Are “Kaffirs” and “Infidels” allowed travel to Mecca?

So much for peaceful coexistence.

Saudi Arabia is sponsoring radical Imams who enter into our prisons and convert young men into a virulent Wahabbist ideology….one resulting in four individuals wanting to destroy synagogues in New York with plastic explosives. Thank God the explosives were dummy. They are sponsoring textbooks which present Islamic centric revisionist history in our schools.

We must recognize that there is an urgent need to separate the theo-political radical Islamic ideology out of our American society. We must begin to demand surveillance of suspected Imams and mosques that are spreading hate and preaching the overthrow of our Constitutional Republic……that speech is not protected under First Amendment, it is sedition and if done by an American treason.

There should not be some 30 Islamic terrorist training camps in America that has nothing to do with First Amendment, Freedom of Religion. The Saudis are not our friends and any American political figure who believes such is delusional.

When tolerance becomes a one way street it certainly leads to cultural suicide. We are on that street. Liberals cannot be trusted to defend our Republic, because their sympathies obviously lie with their perceived victim, Major Nidal Malik Hasan.

I make no apologies for these words, and anyone angered by them, please, go to Ft Hood and look into the eyes of the real victims. The tragedy at Ft Hood Texas did not have to happen. Consider now the feelings of those there and on every military installation in the world. Consider the feelings of the Warriors deployed into combat zones who now are concerned that their loved ones at home are in a combat zone.

Ft Hood suffered an Islamic jihadist attack, stop the denial, and realize a simple point.

The reality of your enemy must become your own.

Redistribution of Health – “Obamacare”

We all know that President Obama is in favor of “Redistribution of Wealth” (what Karl Marx preached) because he told us so with his conversation with “Joe the Plumber” during the Presidential campaign of 2008, but from reading the Democrats health care plans and listening to Obama speak, it seems he’s also in favor of “Redistribution of Health”.

In a recent poll, 85% of the people were satisfied with their health care. So what’s the problem? Can’t we devise some remedy for the 15% who want or need health insurance without throwing out our whole health care system, which is considered by most everyone, the best in the world? Yes, in some cases it’s too expensive and causes some people to get into financial difficulty in accessing it, so why don’t we try to fix that problem instead of scrapping the whole health care system? The old expression of “don’t throw out the baby with the bath water” certainly applies in this case.

There are some people on the left who claim that health care is a “right”. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say we must give someone or anyone health care. It should be somewhat of a priority, but giving it the status of a “right” is just a little too much. If health care (or insurance) are a “right”, what about food, shelter, and clothing? Aren’t they just as important, if not more so than health care?

Why should anyone be forced to buy health insurance under penalty of law? It would be beneficial if everyone had some type of affordable health insurance to guard against a health crisis, but shouldn’t that decision be left to the individual to decide, not the government? Of course, so tell that to Obama and the Democrats who are hell-bent on trying to shove government-run health care down our throats, whether we want it or not.

The young people today are the one’s who will get the “shaft” if the
“Obamacare” proposal(s) pass the Congress. They will be forced to pay higher premiums to “redistribute” the risk of health care for everyone. The one’s that use health care the most, seniors over the age of 55, use about 80% of all health care costs that we expend each year. Young people do get sick and injured and need health services, but compared to the seniors their costs are a fraction of the total costs of health care.

I think forcing people to buy health insurance when they don’t want to, is un-American and it might even be illegal or un-Constitutional. According to an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal;
“President Obama proposes to require insurers to sell policies to everyone no matter what their health status. By itself this requirement, called “guaranteed issue” would just mean that insurers would charge predictably sick people the extremely high premiums that reflect their future expected costs. But, if Congress adds another requirement, called “community rating”, insurers’ ability to charge higher premiums for higher risks will be sharply limited”. That would mean that a healthy 25 year old and a 55 year old with cancer would pay nearly the same premium for a health policy. Is that fair and equitable?

Do you think that the healthier, poorer 25 year old should be forced to subsidize an older, sicker, higher income earner? To me, that would be “Redistribution of Health”, and it will be “the straw that breaks the camel’s back”, as it discriminates against younger people who need less health insurance coverage than do people over the age of 55.

If, we the people, let Obama and the Democrats “transform” our entire health care system (that accounts for about 1/6 of our economy) we’ll have nobody to blame but ourselves. Talk about “killing the goose that lays the golden eggs”, that’s it, soft or hard boiled.

Write you’re elected representatives today and tell them “NO” to government-run healthcare, and tell them to cleanup the fiscal mess of Medicare and Medicaid so that the safety net for our retired senior citizens can be maintained and can be accessed by future retirees. It’s the right thing to do!

Now that our erstwhile Congressman, Robert “Weasel” Wexler, who lives in Potomac, Maryland, is stepping down in January, who will be the person to be “anointed” to fill the seat in the 19th C.D. of Florida?

Since redistricting a few years ago, the 19th C.D. has been a Democratic stronghold with about a 2 to 1 Democrat registration. Even a “carpet-bagger” Congressman, like Robert Wexler, had little trouble winning election after election as he fit the party affiliation criteria and he represented the predominant ethnic group qualifications for the 19th C.D. His main strongholds were the retirement communities of Century Village and Kings Point who voted for the Democrat candidate by about a 9 to 1 ratio. You can’t get much higher than that unless you lived in Harlem.

Quite a few candidates have stepped up to make their intentions known that they want to run for the soon-to-be vacated seat. All the Democrat candidates, about five, meet the above mentioned criteria. Where’s the diversity the Democrats keep harping about? I believe that even if Bernie Madoff ran as a Democrat in the 19th C.D., he’d win in a landslide in those above mentioned retirement communities because that’s the way it is. The same is true with fellow Congressman Alcee Hastings who represents another
“gerrymandered” district that has a preponderance of minority voters. Even as a former impeached judge, he has no trouble winning election after election. Is that the democracy our founding fathers envisioned? I think not!

Left out of the equation, is another candidate who represents the “evil” Republican Party. His name is Ed Lynch, and he’s announced that he’s a candidate in 2010 as he was in 2008. He ran a very enthusiastic campaign in 2008, even without the financial support from the state Republican Party and he didn’t have the big “lobbyist contributed” war chest that Robert Wexler had at his disposal. Lynch did fairly well by garnering close to 30% of the vote under insurmountable odds, especially when the darling of the Democrat Party, Barack Hussein Obama, was heading up the ticket. This time (2010) there won’t be any Obama heading up the ticket so his chances (although still in the long-shot category) are greatly enhanced. Ed lynch is a candidate who is unafraid to address the opposition in trying to get his message to the electorate. He is staunchly pro-Israel (Wexler was wishy-washy on the subject but he got a pass) and he is a fiscal conservative who is against raising taxes on all tax paying Americans, including residents of the 19th C.D.

It should be interesting as to how things will turn out during the coming year. Can an upset be in the offing as President Obama’s poll numbers keep going down? Tune in next November for the conclusion of this soap opera.
