The Cable Jihad Continues – Tea Party Nation

The Cable Jihad Continues – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Al-Jazeera, the favored news station of terrorists everywhere, is pushing to try and pick up a bigger TV audience here in America.

 From Breitbart:

 Al Jazeera America is urging customers to send letters asking cable providers to add the network to their lineups before the channel’s August 20 premiere.

 The fledgling news network faces the same critical issue as Al Gore’s former network; after purchasing Gore’s Current TV, Al Jazeera America inherited the channel’s viewer deficit. In fact, it has even lost more homes after its purchase.

 Via its website, the new foreign-owned news network is urging likely viewers to ask cable providers to add the Al Jazeera America channel to their cable packages and have prepared a helpful form letter for customers to use.

 The letter appears after potential customers add their zip code, name, and email address.

 The letter reads:

 Dear,

 I am writing to request that you add Al Jazeera America as part of your channel lineup. I want to watch Al Jazeera America for its objective, balanced, in-depth news reporting on stories that matter.

 Please let me know when I can expect to see Al Jazeera America as a channel option.

 Sincerely,

 Al Jazeera America is expected to replace Current TV on Comcast, Dish Network, Verizon, DirecTV, and AT&T.

 Isn’t that just what we need?  A news network that is owned by Qatar and whose interests are those of a foreign government and not those of America.

 There is an alternative. 

 One America News Network just launched out of San Diego.  They are an all American news network. 

So which would we rather have on our cable TV?  A propaganda outlet for jihadists or a conservative American News Network.

Call your cable outlet and tell them you do not want Al-Jazeera on your cable dial.  Instead you want One America News Network!

The End of Liberty – Tea Party Nation

The End of Liberty – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Has liberty reached its high water mark in America and are we about to see a slow or perhaps not so slow decline of freedom and liberty in America?

 

One specific event has triggered this and now we may be seeing the consequences.

 What is that event and what are we seeing?

 The event was the reelection of Barack Obama.

 Yes, we all know Obama is an enemy of freedom and liberty.  He has several times longingly talked about how he wished he was a dictator or had the powers of the President of Communist China.

 One of the rights the Constitution gives Barack Obama is to appoint Federal Judges with the “advice and consent” of the Senate.

 Because the Republicans ran the George Custer of Republican nominees in 2012, instead of letting a real candidate and a real conservative be the nominee, Obama has four more years to appoint Judges.

 How bad can this be?

 Consider the recent case of Drake v. Filko in New Jersey.

 In that case, a group of individuals sued to change New Jersey’s requirement that if a citizen wanted a concealed carry permit the burden of proof was on the citizen to show they needed the permit and not on the government to show the citizen should not have the permit.

 New Jersey required that a citizen show a “justifiable need” for the permit. 

 New Jersey is a Constitution free zone.

 Unfortunately for the citizens of New Jersey, the criminals of New Jersey did not get the memo.

 The three judges who decided the case in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals included one Obama appointee, one George W. Bush appointee and Lyndon Johnson appointee!  Yes, that may be the last judge appointed by Johnson who is still serving but he is a Democrat.

 The Judges wrote unanimously that, “It remains unsettled whether the individual right to bear arms for the purpose of self-defense extends beyond the home.”

 Since the Supreme Court has ruled repeatedly that the police have no duty to protect citizens, how are citizens supposed to protect themselves?

 The simple truth is liberals do not like self-defense at all.  That is one of the reasons they hate the Second Amendment.  It empowers citizens to defend themselves and it means they are not dependent on the government. 

 The major Second Amendment decisions of the last few years, Heller v. District of Columbia and McDonald v. City of Chicago were slender 5-4 decisions by the Supreme Court.  One single switched vote, like John Roberts did in the Obamacare decision would mean the reduction or end of the Second Amendment.

 While the five remaining conservative justices on the court have no intention of retiring while Obama is President, for some of them, time is not their friend. 

 Of course, getting a Republican elected in 2016 is no guarantee of getting good Judges.  One of these judges was a George W. Bush appointee.  Sandra Day O’Conner, one of the worst Supreme Court Justices in history was a Reagan appointee and David Souter who became one of the most liberal justices on the court was a George H.W. Bush appointee.

 If Obama has the chance to replace one of the conservative justices, the trend of the Supreme Court expanding liberty, at least in the area of the Second Amendment, will come to a grinding halt and we will see more and more insane rulings, like the ruling from the Third Circuit.

The obvious lie – Tea Party Nation

If the Obama Regime had not scrapped George W. Bush’s color-coded terror alert system, based on the responses we are seeing, it would probably be at red right now.

 

Congressmen and Senators of both parties are scrambling to say that this is a real threat and security is being ratcheted up to levels we have not seen since the days after 9/11.

 While we are going through all of this, maybe there are a couple of questions that need to be asked.  Granted the drive by media isn’t going to ask them but maybe real Americans should.

 What are they?

 What has the government not been doing and why not?

 When Obama was inaugurated, he almost immediately did a 180-degree turn from the Bush Administration.  George Bush, while he was politically correct in identifying our enemies and wanted to do nation building, he was at least willing to fight our enemies.

 Obama almost immediately went to the Middle East and began bowing and scraping in front of Islamic hardliners.

 Obama’s politically correct Department of Homeland Security view so-called “Right wing extremists” as more of a threat to America than Islamic Terror.  Of course, Obama’s real definition of a right wing extremist is someone who votes Republican.

 The FBI, the military and other groups were ordered to scrub all of their training materials of any reference to Islam.   How the hell are we going to fight an enemy if we cannot even identify the enemy?

 Can you imagine the military in World War II being ordered to remove all references to Nazism in its training materials?

 In Afghanistan, the Regime has imposed such stringent rules of engagement on our soldiers that it makes them little more than targets.  Obama is now trying to run out the clock and simply get America out, without victory.

 In Afghanistan, the Regime has been wasting money like drunken Democrats.  In Afghanistan and other places throughout the Middle East, as Obama tries to appease the terrorists, US tax dollars have been used to build or rebuild Mosques.  To appease the enemy, Obama has pushed out regimes that were either friendly to the United States (Egypt) or those who were staying out of the terrorism fight and were relatively stable (Libya and Syria) and has ensured or tried to ensure their replacement with radical Islamic regimes.

  What has that gotten us?

 Contrary to what Dear Leader says, Al-Qaeda is not on the run.  Al-Qaeda is not dead.

 Al-Qaeda is now making us jump through hoops and is apparently a real threat to America.

 Barack Obama and his team of far left wing radicals are the bigger threat than Al-Qaeda.

 They have worked diligently to make sure the United States is brought down.  We have out of control debt, a rules and laws now designed to enslave a free people and the Obama Regime will not even identify much less confront our enemies.

 t is not hard to believe the only reason the Obama Regime is as alarmed over this terrorism threat as it is, is simply due to the political damage it would cause Obama.  If there were to be a major terrorist attack during Obama’s watch, it would cripple his second term agenda.  He would never recover from it.

 Why are we under the threat of terrorist attack right now?

 It is the policies of the Obama Regime.

 Instead of being “bipartisan,” we need to start calling out their failures and demanding change.

A Military in Decline – Tea Party Nation

A Military in Decline – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

Wars are often unpredictable. The outcome of such conflicts is also unpredictable, but defeat in future conflicts is now being “baked into the cake” and I suspect most Americans are totally unaware of how serious this threat is. You can be sure potential and actual enemies are calculating the odds.

A recent USA Today article noted that the choice between troops and modern weapons would require the Army to shrink to “as few as 380,000 soldiers and the Marine Corps to 150,000 troops. There would also be fewer Navy aircraft carriers and Air Force bombers. Current plans envision an Army of 490,000 soldiers in the coming years, and a Marine Corps of 182,000”, added that “The Army hasn’t been that small since before World War II when it had 267,767 soldiers.”

In January, the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff sent a letter to Sen. Carl Levin, the Chairman of the Committee on Armed Forces.

“The readiness of our Armed Forces is at a tipping point. We are on the brink of creating a hollow force due to an unprecedented convergence of budget considerations and legislation that could require the Department (of Defense) to retain more forces than requested while underfunding that force’s readiness.” The letter addressed the “sequestration that has trigged “a cut in operating budgets of more than twenty percent across the Joint Force compared with the President’s budget.”

While “Troops on the front lines will receive the support they need…the rest of the force will be compromised.” The “looming readiness crisis” would force the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines “to ground aircraft, return ships to port, and stop driving combat vehicles in training.” After more than a decade of hard fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Joint Chiefs warned that “We will be unable to reset and restore the force’s full-spectrum combat capability…”

The U.S. military is on life support. In July, The Washington Times reported that Gen. Raymond Odierno, the Army’s chief of staff, told a gathering at the American Enterprise Institute that fewer than one-quarter of today’s youth can qualify for Army service” but what struck me as odd was his view that this makes “the recruitment of women even more important.”

In the long history of the American fighting forces—indeed in the history of civilization—nations have not called upon their women to be front line combat personnel. The feminist movement in America has changed that and the military is under orders to recruit more women in the name of “diversity.”

It does not take an expert in military affairs to know that the demand to include more women in the ranks will degrade unit cohesion throughout of our fighting forces.

The Center for Military Readiness devotes itself to this topic and its findings should be front-page news. Instead, Americans remain unaware of the deterioration of the nation’s ability to train a new generation to defend itself and project its strength.

A recent Pentagon study by the Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Office (SAPRO) fills two hefty volumes. The Center says it “documents the dysfunctional consequences of social experiments with human sexuality in our military over many years” warning that “Failing to see the big picture, the Department of Defense is moving ahead with plans to extend problems of sexual assault and misconduct into the combat arms.”

As someone who has served in the U.S. Army well before women were introduced as part of the fighting elements, it comes as no surprise that, between 2004 and 2012, the number of sexual assault cases among military personnel “escalated from 1,275 to 2,949, an increase of 129%.” This has occurred in a military that has ”more sexual response coordinators (25,000) than it does recruiters (19,000).”

From the chiefs of staff down through all the officer ranks, the pressure has been on to accommodate the very real differences between men and women. It is compromising all elements of military service and is most evident in the area of training. The Center says “It does not matter what Pentagon officials and women-in-combat activists are promising now…incremental pressures to assign women to fighting infantry battalions eventually will drive qualifications standards down.”

The Marine Corps, an elite fighting force, serves as just one example. They reported that obvious differences in physiology should rule out women in combat. “On average, women have 47% lower lifting strength, 40% lower muscle strength, 20% lower aerobic capacity (important for endurance), and 26% slower road march strength. In addition, both female attrition/injury rates during entry level training and discharge rates were twice those of men and non-deployable rates where three times higher.”

“There is no incentive,” says the Center, “for ensuring that tough training standards for elite fighting battalions remain high and uncompromised.” That is the description for a fighting force that can no longer meet the rigors of the battlefield.

Every indicator of how our military’s combat readiness is being degraded is available to those in the Pentagon and in Congress. Double standards in the name of “diversity” will undermine the vital element of survival in combat, team and unit cohesion.

The Center has called on Congress to acknowledge these ancient and present challenges and to shape policy for the military as is its responsibility under Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.

“To truly honor and respect our courageous servicewomen, Congress should take this issue seriously,” says the Center. “The highest priority should be military necessity, not self-interest, political illusions, or ideology that denies differences between men and women.”

An under-funded U.S. military, riven with all manner of social experimentation involving women and gays, is putting the nation and our global interests at risk.

Senate passes S.744 amnesty, but grassroots opposition is on the way to blocking it in House | NumbersUSA – For Lower Immigration Levels

Senate passes S.744 amnesty, but grassroots opposition is on the way to blocking it in House | NumbersUSA – For Lower Immigration Levels.

What just happened: This afternoon, 68 Senators voted to pass S. 744. (Click here for the full roll call.) The bad news: If eventually signed into law, this bill would threaten to knock millions of Americans out of the middle class by flooding their occupations with 33 million foreign citizens who are offered lifetime work permits over the next decade. Can you believe 68 U.S. Senators voted for that?The willingness of every single Democratic Senator and almost a third of Republicans to accept the corporate lobbyists’ insistence that our country faces devastating labor shortages is disheartening to all of us who have fought so hard to protect the 20 million Americans who can’t find a full-time job, and the millions more who have seen their real wages declining for decades during a worker surplus.

What’s next, and the good news about your efforts thus far: Now, we must turn our full efforts to immigrationthe U.S. House of Representatives and another huge grassroots effort in July. But this will be only a three-week fight before the month-long August recess.

There is no question that the five-month opposition that all of you have waged is having good results in the House, where the Senate bill is facing an increasingly hostile reception.

If the House refuses to move a giant overall amnesty, it doesn’t matter what the Senate has done.

Your efforts have been phenomenal: Over the last few months, you have been faxing your Representatives and going to their offices, even as you focused primary attention on Senators. Republican Representatives have watched the incredible grassroots opposition to the 14 Republican Senators who broke with the rest of their Party and supported Pres. Obama‘s top priority for the year.

Just today, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Illinois), a member of the House Republican leadership, told reporters,

“It is a pipe dream to think that that (Senate) bill is going to go to the (House) floor and be voted on. The House is going to move through in a more deliberative process.”

For months, the open-borders lobby and their supporters in the news media have proclaimed that citizens were not speaking against this amnesty anything close to the way they did in 2007.

Your efforts back in 2007 to mobilize against that amnesty effort has become the stuff of legend around Washington. But I’m so proud to tell you that over the last five months — especially the past two weeks – you smashed the old records for activism! You’ve sent millions of faxes and made hundreds of thousands of phone calls into congressional offices.

For example, Republican Bob Corker, the Senator who rescued the S. 744 amnesty from defeat last week with a fig-leaf border control amendment, admitted on the floor this morning that the bill is extremely unpopular back in his state of Tennessee.

All of us at NumbersUSA thank you U.S. citizens for everything you have done thus far. And we thank you for all Americans who will benefit if the House blocks the incredibly harmful provisions of S. 744.

Fighting the bad stuff in narrow House bill: The  grassroots uprising against the Senate has truly caught hold among House Republicans who have persuaded their Leadership to go along with House Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte (R-Virginia) to refuse to do a giant comprehensive bill, instead passing small bills that deal with one immigration issue at a time.

isupportlegalimmigrationThe problem is that the special-interest lobbyists are succeeding in getting a number of provisions into those small bills that would harm American wage-earners and taxpayers.

We will be coming to you for assistance in taming those Fat Cat Welfare provisions.

Dealing with the Conference Committee danger: Even if the House passes an absolutely wonderful immigration bill — such as the enforcement legislation recently passed overwhelmingly by the Judiciary Committee — that would give Senate leaders the opportunity to ask for a joint Senate/House “Conference Committee” which would split the difference between that very good bill and the Senate monstrosity.

If a Conference compromise bill were to include an amnesty, both the Senate and House would need to vote for it, without opportunity for amendment. The general thinking here in Washington is that most House Democrats would vote for the Conference “report” bill and very likely the needed couple dozen or so House Republicans would, too..

But . . .

Even if the Senate leadership were to ask for a Conference Committee, Speaker Boehner would not have to agree and appoint House conferees.

And even if there were a Conference Committee that reported out a bill with an amnesty, Speaker Boehner would not have to bring it to the House floor for a vote.

We have precedents in 2005 and 2006 for what we can hope will happen this year.

Many of you were part of those battles in which the House passed an excellent enforcement bill in late 2005. Despite our best efforts, the Republican-Majority Senate passed an amnesty in the spring of 2006. Then-Speaker Hastert refused to conference over those two bills, and the Senate amnesty died. (It was the next spring in 2007 when the new Democrat-Majority Senate failed to pass an amnesty when the new Democrat-Majority House was sure to have approved it.)

Until recently, Speaker Boehner has kept open the option of bringing an amnesty bill to the House floor that might pass with a minority of Republican votes — as he has done with some fiscal bills in the past. But over the last week, he has assured an increasingly aggressive Republican Conference in the House that he would not bring an immigration bill to the floor without at least a bare majority of Republicans supporting it.

Nonetheless, until today, he has refused to say what he would do about a Conference report that reconciled House and Senate bills.

This morning, once again, we saw the results of the powerful grassroots opposition to what the Senate has been doing. Politico just reported that Boehner told reporters :

“For any legislation including the conference report to pass the House it’s going to have to be a bill that has the support of the majority of our members.”

As you know, our Board of Directors, our staff and our members are Independents, Republicans and Democrats. But our July House Battle will be all about making sure that the majority of Republicans are against any overall amnesty. And we want the majority to be at least the two-thirds majority opposition to overall amnesty that we saw among Senate Republicans today.

The pro-amnesty, low-wage, labor globalization folks want Congress to believe that Americans will lose their will to fight and will just go back to reading celebrity news. But that’s not the Americans I’ve known ever since we’ve worked together to stop every amnesty attempt in every year starting in 2001 (after seven amnesties passed between 1986 and 2000).

Which Senators voted out of belief in ‘labor shortages’ and bogus enforcement promises?

At NumbersUSA, we have an Immigration Grade Card system that ensures that no vote against the interests of the American people will ever be forgotten.

Today, 68 Senators cast votes that will be very difficult to ever redeem with future actions.

After all the promises of “enforcement first,” these Senators accepted an entirely “amnesty first” bill that in the first few months would give work permits and legalization to some 11 million foreign citizens who either (a) crossed the border illegally, most of them by paying drug cartels and many of them by helping the cartels move drugs, or who (b) violated the promises on their vacation and guest visas and illegally took U.S. jobs (often through identity theft and fraud) and a share of the taxpayer-provided infrastructure.

Every single Democratic Senator voted YES to the amnesty and to the arguments of corporate lobbyists that a nation with 20 million Americans unable to find full-time jobs is desperately in need of 33 million new lifetime work permits for foreign citizens over the next decade.

And these Republican Senators voted YES to the same provisions, breaking with the majority of their Party (32 Senators) and all four of their Senate Party leaders:

Alexander (R-TN)
Ayotte (R-NH)
Chiesa (R-NJ)
Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)
Flake (R-AZ)
Graham (R-SC)
Hatch (R-UT)
Heller (R-NV)
Hoeven (R-ND)
Kirk (R-IL)
McCain (R-AZ)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Rubio (R-FL)

We will work with all of you to ensure that those 68 Senators are held accountable for their betrayal today of American wage-earners, of the unemployed and of the rule of law.

But our top attention must now be in the July House Battle that your activism has so-well prepared us for.

Obama’s Enormous Climate Lies – Tea Party Nation

Obama’s Enormous Climate Lies – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

Putting aside Obama’s intention to further reduce our nuclear arsenal as articulated in his June 19 speech in Berlin, he has solidified his position as the World’s Greatest Liar with his statements about climate change, aka global warming, which he called “the global threat of our time.”

Let us stipulate that the global threat of our time is the rise of Islamic fanaticism in its pursuit of a worldwide caliphate. It threatens some six billion of the world’s population that represent other faiths. It is on the rise throughout the Middle East and into northern Africa’s Maghreb. It has cells in South America and it threatens the lives of millions of Americans if the jihadists acquire nuclear arms.

Regarding the President’s call for nuclear disarmament, veteran journalist Bill Gertz observed that “The president is using a new term to support his earlier disarmament call back in 2009 in Prague, and it’s called ‘peace with justice’ which has a very Marxist-Leninist ring to it. All the rhetoric of the communist groups around refer to peace with justice, (and) now the president has employed it for the first time.”

Obama continues to conjure up global warming despite overwhelming evidence that it does not exist. Dubbed “climategate”, revelations in 2009 made clear that a small group within the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) were deliberately falsifying their climate models.

A6_HvuRCEAAJ3mMThere is nothing that humans can or should do regarding the Earth’s climate. It is a force that is so vast and powerful that calls for renewable energy, energy conservation, and a “carbon tax” on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are utterly false, a danger to human life, a threat to global economic development, and the work of scoundrels and charlatans.

At present, there has been no warming for almost seventeen years. The Earth is in a natural cooling cycle as the result of another natural cycle, the reduction of the Sun’s radiation that warms the Earth.

“For the grim alternative affects all nations,” said Obama. “More severe storms, more famine and floods, new waves of refugees, coastlines that vanish, oceans that rise.”

incompetentThe President is lying!

In his 2008 speech in Chicago’s Grant Park following his election, Obama said, “It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America

The change has been, not just the election of the first black American as president, but the first president to consistently lie to Americans. The change he has wrought in his first term and is seeking to bring about in his second includes the largest seizure and nationalization of the American health system in our history and a “stimulus” that wasted billions of dollars that accomplished nothing to reduce unemployment and avoid economic stagnation.

myworkObama’s promise of change has reduced America’s standing in the world as the protector of peace and his decisions have helped advance the spread of the Islamic jihad.

It has produced a war on coal, the energy resource that, prior to his taking office, provided fifty percent of all the electricity Americans use every day. It has reduced access to oil and natural gas on federal lands. Obama will pursue more action in the name of climate change in the form of more regulation of power plants, new subsidies for so-called clean energy, and other big, futile, farcical, and costly government programs

Obama’s administration has given us scandals from “Fast and Furious” to the failure to come to the aid of our ambassador to Libya in Benghazi; the revelation that the IRS engaged in a deliberate program against Tea Party, patriot groups, and even Jewish organizations. It has reduced and degraded the U.S. military with programs to permit homosexuals to serve and women to be in combat units. An outbreak of sexual assaults—26,000 and most men-on-men—in the military has resulted.

bothIn Berlin, the President said, “Our generation must move towards a global compact to confront a changing climate before it is too late, that is our job; that is our task.”

On June 25, he will announce new executive orders to implement “climate change” mandates in the face of congressional resistance. He says it will be “my vision for where I believe we need to go—a national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change, and lead global efforts to fight it.”

Carbon dioxide is not “pollution”; it is, along with oxygen, the other gas most vital to all life on Earth.

A SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA

This is an opinion by Mychal Massie, which was found posted on his website, The Daily Rant.

 

According to his website bio Massie is a “syndicated op-ed columnist; and former

host of the top rated talk show on the Rightalk Radio Network – “Straight Talk with Mychal Massie;” he is a former self employed business owner of 30 plus years.”

 

A SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA

 

 

Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show hostsmugpackage

in Los Angeles.

 

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama‘s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

 

 

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do

not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I

responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

 

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America . They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

 

hopefailedI don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

 

 

Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

 

2012-07-05-alexanderI do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.

 

I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

 

Dog%20pee%20on%20Obama[1]And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself

with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel . His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

 obama_lies2I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

 

Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

 

I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

 Holder F&FAs I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood… Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America ‘s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

Big Government is Stupid Government – Tea Party Nation

Big Government is Stupid Government – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

Nothing enhances a president’s reputation than to be seen in the company of other world leaders and Obama will have an abundance of photo-ops as he meets in Ireland with the G8 to address the many woes of the world. Too bad they think he is a dunce.

Given the unrelenting headlines about the Obama administration, it is worth worrying that Big Government is Stupid Government. It is inherently a danger to freedom. Just ask anyone who ever lived under communism.

While there are many fine people in government, those at the top of the current roster seem to be a collection of the most incompetent, inept, naïve, ignorant, and uninformed morons to have ever gathered around that big table where the cabinet meets. If, in fact, they really do get together except for the occasional photo-op.

The last Secretary State and President-in-Waiting, Hillary Clinton, flew a million miles in the job, but no one can point to anything she actually accomplished and she, apparently, had no idea what was going on at State. The present Secretary, John Kerry, is convinced that global warming is the greatest threat to, well, everything and is still trying to get the Palestinians to agree to peace terms with Israel; something they have refused to do since it opened doors for business in 1948.

Eric Holder, the Attorney General, cannot seem to remember anything. Usually you expect a lawyer to keep a few facts in mind such as the contents of the U.S. Constitution, but Holder is an exception or, like Obama, he read it and didn’t like it.

Other than Valerie Jarrett, only the White House reporters seem to know the names of his closest advisors. Tim Carney, the spokesman for Obama, has carved out a place in history as the biggest, lying weasel to ever hold that job. Oh how I miss the beautiful and intelligent Dana Parino, Bush43’s spokesperson. Happily I get to see her on “The Five”, a Fox News daily gab fest.

After Rahm Emanuel left the job as Obama’s chief of staff to become the Mayor of Chicago, the city has turned into a killing ground the equal of downtown Baghdad.

Obama is utterly devoted to Big Government and, thanks to Obamacare, the IRS is trying to hire the equivalent of an armed forces division to administer it. The popularity of Obamacare, plus the scandals, currently is plunging to depths that even the pollsters are beginning to measure in single digits. The President’s numbers are reaching new lows as well.

A notable aspect of Big Government is the increasing size of various pieces of legislation such as the so-called immigration reform and the Common Core education bills. Beginning life as No Child Left Behind under Bush43, this latter bill is not likely to be reauthorized. Any piece of legislation that exceeds a thousand or more pages in a one-size-fits-all is doomed to failure.

At this writing, the House is getting ready to vote for a trillion-dollar food stamp and farm bill about which few Americans are even aware. It’s a huge giveaway for a nation that is essentially broke. As Congress gets close to its summer break, all manner of comparable mischief will occur. Recall that Obamacare was passed on Christmas Eve 2009!

For the same reason, the ever-expanding surveillance of everyone’s electronic communications comes with the built-in limitation that the more signals intelligence it gathers, the less likely it will produce any results, except after the next attack. The NSA employs tens of thousands of analysts to deal with all the “signent” is acquires and, other than that which focuses on places like Yemen, the rest is not likely to yield much of value.

A government big enough to access every phone call and email from 310 million Americans is also failed to take serious action when the Russians
warned that two jihadists were living in Boston.

The other aspect of Big Government is the way the Obama administration has enlarged the numbers of Americans receiving food stamps, disability payments, and other “free” stuff that is not free, but dependent on those who still have a job. Social Security and Medicare are barely solvent and Medicaid is bankrupting the states that must contribute to it.

According to the American Enterprise Institute, “The number of federal employees has risen under President Obama. There were 2,790,000 federal workers in January 2009 when the president took office, and now there are 2,804,000 workers. The fact is that there is no month during President Obama’s term when the federal workforce was smaller than it was in the first month of Mr. Obama’s presidency. The president took over in January 2009. Every month after January 2009 has seen more federal workers than were employed in January 2009.

It would be wrong to suggest that federal workers are not productive, but the sheer size of this workforce suggests that Big Government takes a lot of people out of the private sector and provides them with employment that comes with a multitude of perks that adds to the federal debt for which everyone must be taxed.

“A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have,” is attributed to Thomas Jefferson, as is “Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” This was true in the 1700s and is true today.

With considerable foresight, the Founders wanted a central government that was intended to remain limited in size, scope, and power. The Department of Homeland Security—the hasty reaction to 9/11—has metastasized into an Orwellian giant that should, at the earliest moment possible, be disassembled into its component parts.

The nation would no doubt benefit from putting an end to the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, the government mortgage companies of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and comparable entities that are mostly the result of government’s vast expansion in the latter half of the last century and this new one.

Term limits is another idea worth considering. I sometimes think that the longer a Senator or Representative stays in Congress, the more senile, incompetent, and indifferent they become to the voters.

Some more equal than others – Tea Party Nation

Some more equal than others – Tea Party Nation.

 Posted by Judson Phillips

One of the greatest lines from George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm was, “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”

 

Animal Farm was an allegorical novel by George Orwell, where the animals rise up, depose the human owners of the farm and declare all to be equal.

 America is a nation that declares all to be equal.  Yet we are seeing with the Obama Regime, not all are equal.

 Who does the Obama Regime consider to be more equal than others and who does the Obama Regime consider to be enemies of the state?

 For weeks now, stories have come out of Washington about how the Tea Party and other conservative groups have been targeted by the IRS and sometimes other agencies.

 When it comes to religions, the Obama Regime definitely believes that some religions are more equal than others.

 According to the Christian Post, the Coalition for Life of Iowa was asked as a part of the process to obtain non-profit status to have its board of directors sign a letter under penalty of perjury that the group would not protest outside Planned Parenthood.

 In a later letter, they were asked about the content of their prayers.

 This is not the only instance of Christian groups being targeted by the Obama Regime.  An Army briefing earlier this year listed Evangelical Christianity as a part of the threat from “religious extremism.”  Also listed in the same category was Al Qaeda.  The Catholic Church was also listed at a part of the threat of Religious Extremism.  One other example of a threat from religious extremism was something called, “Islamophobia.”

 On the other hand, Islam is treated as the religion that is more equal than others. 

 One of the myriad of Obama scandals has been the NSA surveillance scandal.  As Sarah Palin said Saturday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to the Majority” conference, “Our government spied on every single one of your phone calls but couldn’t find two pot-smoking deadbeat Bostonians with a hotline to terrorist central in Chechnya.”

 Why couldn’t they find these guys?

 Well, among other reasons, Mosques are off limits to FBI surveillance.

 According to Investors Business Daily, since October 2011, Mosques have been off limits.   One thing every Islamic Terrorist who has hit America since 9/11 has in common is involvement in a Mosque.  Tamerlin Tsarnaev had an outburst at his Mosque in Boston before he and his brother bombed the Boston Marathon.   The officials of the Mosque did not tell Federal authorities about Tsarnaev and since the FBI could not conduct surveillance at the Mosque, they remained clueless. 

 Nadal Hassan, the Army Major who committed mass murder at Fort Hood in 2009 openly espoused radical Islamic beliefs and even walked around with business cards that said he was “SOA” or a “Soldier of Allah.”

 The FBI, as the Blaze reported in 2012, did not investigate Hassan because of political correctness.   Even though FBI agents saw emails between Hassan and radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, they were prevented from investigating him.

 While the Army would not investigate a man who had alarming connections to terrorists and who went on to commit mass murder, three years later, the Army is on the ball and is investigating a real threat to the Army.

 According to the Fox News, Army Master Sergeant Nathan Sommers, a soldier with twenty five years service has been given a reprimand (which will effectively end his career) for serving Chic-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party, supporting the Defense of Marriage Act (which is the law of the land) and reading books by David Limbaugh and Mark Levine.

 Someone who is allied with our Islamic enemies and who eventually commits mass murder cannot be investigated but a patriotic American soldier must be punished.

Welcome to Obama’s America.  Here some truly are more equal than others.

 

Immigration “Reform” Bill the Worst Ever at the Worst Time Ever – Tea Party Nation

Immigration “Reform” Bill the Worst Ever at the Worst Time Ever – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

If you liked Obamacare, you will love the proposed immigration “reform” bill which is all about the politics of the Left with no regard to the welfare of U.S. citizens by birth and naturalized citizens. Its final length remains unknown, but it was more than 1,500 pages by late April. The Senate takes up the bill this week.

The fact that Congress is revisiting the immigration issue is testimony to the estimated eleven million aliens illegally here due to law enforcement failures and limitations, and the political implications of granting them and eventually their families what is essentially instant citizenship, though fretted with a variety of fines and other factors.

The immigration bill gives the finger to those waiting, often for years, to go through the naturalization process and to the millions of Americans in need of employment during the worst economic times since the Great Depression.

As Alan Blinder, a former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve, wrote in the June 11 edition of The Wall Street Journal, “Mass joblessness is a shameful waste of human resources, a source of misery to millions, and now threatens to create an underclass of long-term unemployed whose skills are atrophying and whose hopes are vanishing.”

The “gang of eight” is composed of Senators of the far Left such as Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Bob Menendez (D-NJ), along with RINOs (Republicans in name only) such as John McCain (R-McCain) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Others include Marco Rubio (R-FL) who is either going to vote for it or against it depending on what day it is. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Michael Bennett (D-CO) complete the list.

You can ignore the promises of increased enforcement of laws to protect our southern border as these laws have been ignored for years. In January, a federal judge ruled that ten Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and officers had the right to challenge the so-called Morton Memo on prosecutorial discretion and the DREAM directive on deferred action that essentially ordered agents to violate federal laws for face adverse employment actions against them. The Memo prohibited ICE agents and officers from arresting or removing, i.e. deporting, any but the most violent criminal aliens; both initiatives of the Obama administration.

As NumbersUSA pointed out in May, the U.S. Senate’s S-744 bill “would give lifetime permits to 33 million more foreign citizens to complete with Americans for scare U.S. jobs” over the next decade when the 20 million Americans are currently seeking work. “That’s like putting the entire population of Canada in line for American jobs.”

The 33 million new work visas in the decade ahead would be almost as many as all immigrants who ever entered the U.S. in its history through to today.

The Center for Immigration Studies says that S-744 “assures the continuation of poverty for the American underclass for the foreseeable future, noting that in the first quarter of this year, the “broad unemployment rate for Americans without a high school degree has reached 30% and is close to 20% for citizens with only a high school education.”

“There are now 55.4 million working-age Americans who are not working.”

NumbersUSA provides another way of looking at S-744, pointing out that is that it is comparable to “re-creating ALL of the Top 20 cities in the United States, filling them entirely with foreign citizens and giving them lifetime work permits to compete with America’s struggling workers—and in just ten years’ time.”

The bill when it was released in April had approximately 1.14 waivers or exemptions per page. The 2,409 page Obamacare bill had 0.78 waivers and exemptions. S-744 is filled with 85 mentions of “unless”, 150 uses of “except”, 18 inclusions of “exempt”, 95 mentions of “waiver”, 47 offers of “discretion”, 47 uses of “notwithstanding” and 618 uses of “may” in its original 876-pages. As noted, the bill now has some 1,500 pages. These are the work of the countless lobbyists who have influenced the bill.

In addition, the immigration “reform” bill includes two “slush funds” amounting to $150,000,000 that may be supplemented with additional taxpayer dollars for years to come. These funds would go to “public or private, non-profit organizations such as La Raza, Casa de Maryland, and the American Immigration lawyers Association! These and other organizations are devoted to helping illegal immigrants apply for legal status.

It gets worse if that is possible. The bill not only provides amnesty for illegal immigrants, but does so as well for their employers. As the Center for Immigration Studies points out, “Illegal aliens will be rewarded for breaking laws for which American citizens are routinely punished” such as the use of fraudulent Social Security cards, while imposing a $1,000 penalty that “in many cases would be waived. Then they would be issued a new Social Security number without any past bad credit or arrest records.”

The so-called immigration reform bill is the worst bill at the worst time. It is an invitation to millions more to illegally enter the United States.
