POLL FARCE: PEW OVERSAMPLES DEMOCRATS TO BOOST OBAMA


On what alternate universe will Democrats enjoy a D +19 turnout advantage over Republicans on election day? Well, that would be Planet Pew:

The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted July 16-26, 2012, among 2,508 adults, including 1,956 registered voters, finds that, in keeping with his favorability advantage, Obama continues to hold a sizable lead over Romney in the election contest. Currently, 51% say they support Obama or lean toward him, while 41% support or lean toward Romney.
Except….
Sample Size:
459 Republicans
813 Democrats
599 Independents
In the best election season Democrats have enjoyed since Nixon resigned, 2008, the Democrat advantage was only D+8, but Pew is now attempting to hustle us into believing the turnout this  year is going to be D +19.

The Obama Lie Machine


        Obama tax calculator offers tax cuts for millionaires


The Obama campaign unveiled a new website Thursday as part of a major communications push to convince voters that Mitt Romney’s tax plan favors the rich.
The website includes a tax calculator that allows voters to compare their tax savings under President Obama’s and Gov. Romney’s competing plans.
However, the tax calculator seems to be doing some fuzzy math. President Obama has promised to raise income taxes on all Americans making more than $200,000 and all families making more than $250,000 a year. Obama campaign spokesman Jen Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One earlier today, “If you’re a millionaire or billionaire, it’s probably not looking good for you in our plan, but otherwise, you’re great under our plan.  So we encourage people to go [to the calculator website].”

ICE Agent Faces Suspension For Arresting Illegal Alien


A veteran Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent is facing suspension after he refused to release an illegal immigrant who was not considered a priority target under the Obama Administration’s new immigration enforcement policies, according to documents provided exclusively to Fox News.

“They’re punishing law enforcement officers who are just trying to uphold U.S. law,” said Chris Crane, president of the National ICE Council. Crane is a union representative acting on the unidentified officer’s behalf.The officer under fire is an 18-year law enforcement and military veteran.
On March 27 he and another officer were conducting surveillance on a vehicle in Newark, Del. with plates that were registered to a criminal alien target. During the surveillance, they observed an individual get into the vehicle. The person was detained, questioned and taken to an ICE office so that his fingerprints could be run through a federal database.

Obama’s Racism-Obsessed Surrogate




Virginia state senator: 'I absolutely believe it's all about race'



The Obama surrogate who blamed the president’s falling poll numbers in Virginia on racist tactics by Republicans has a history of claiming racism.
State Sen. Louise Lucas (D., Portsmouth), told a radio host that Republican candidate Mitt Romney is “speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody other than a white person in a leadership position.”
“I absolutely believe it’s all about race and for the first time I’ve convinced my children finally that racism is alive and well,” she said.
Lucas appeared on the WHKT talk show in her official capacity as an Obama surrogate. The president’s reelection campaign refused to respond to media requests about the comment.

Bonus Blowout: GSA Gave Out $44M


Employees at the obscure General Services Administration are quietly gobbling up 10 percent of the entire federal government's bonus checks, a top Republican lawmaker revealed Wednesday, with the tab reaching a stunning $44 million last year.

The $44 million amount is far more than was previously reported. As House lawmakers convened a hearing Wednesday digging deep into alleged mismanagement and waste at the embattled agency, Transportation Committee Chairman John Mica, R-Fla, called the latest revelations "absolutely outrageous."

Disclosing the results of what he described as a preliminary investigation, Mica said bonuses totaled $44 million, with many bonuses worth $50,000 apiece and some going to workers now under investigation. One employee, he said, received a $79,000 bonus, adding up to nearly $260,000 in total compensation.

Lawmakers also said overtime payments were over the top. Mica cited one case where a worker with an $84,000 salary received $115,000 overtime.

California: Political Sinkhole of the West (Part 2)

Last week Gov. Jerry Brown traveled to two different cities for the ceremonial signing of the High-speed rail bill. The only thing missing from the event was the ditch that the train is heading for if this project ever gets off the ground. The hole that will be dug to accommodate the high-speed rail project better be big enough to bury the state. The "Project" if completed will travel from SF to LA and beyond. To say this project is a waste of money is a testimony to the democrat thinking that has continued to permeate the state when common sense has been in short supply and stupidity is at the top of the list.

No one knows what the final cost will be but when you include the costs of bonds at the current rate, it cost the state about $2.25 for every dollar borrowed. It is a wonder how the state has not gone bankrupt yet. With the gimmicks and games that are being played, the arbitrary budget that was just passed makes for interesting conversation that all bets are off as to when and not if California falls into the ocean. In the past month three California cities have filed for bankruptcy protection with many more lining up to fail as well.

Obama: "Its a Step in the Right (Wrong) Direction"


What the Obama Administration is really saying is "Don't read the job numbers.  It will just tell you what we don't want you do know,  its worse than we want it to appear to be and we really don't know what we are doing;" For those of you that think that everything is fine just because the President says, "It's a step in the right direction" you are sadly mistaken.

The creation (a word that the President loves to throw around) of 80,000 jobs should be added jobs. And for the record 150,000 people entered the job market in June which means we "added" a net loss of 70,000 jobs. If this logic does not make sense to you, it's called government speak and it is used to distract and confuse even the most seasoned bureaucrat. The real truth lies (another word that can be used to describe what they are telling you) in the statistics you won't hear or see in the MSM.  You are going to see them here today.

California: Political Sinkhole of the West

Anyone who follows politics in California knows that the republicans are fighting a losing battle.  Jerry Brown is again going to the taxpayers to bail out the state.  To add insult to injury the 2012-2013 budget bill he just signed includes revenues of $8.2 billion that will come from his tax initiatives "IF" they pass.

There are many ways that we can paint this picture.  First of all, if history is any indication of the failures of the past, higher taxes do not raise revenues.  It usually has the opposite effect.  When Illinois passed a tax increase in last year, revenue went down faster than a roller coaster at Disneyland. There is only so much you can do to tax your way out of trouble.  Business's and people have moved to neighboring states where the tax burden is lower and the business environment is pro-active.  This is the exact same thing that has been happening in California for the past few years.  Business's are leaving at the rate of five a week and this is not the worst of it.  California has ranked at the bottom of the least friendly state to do business eight years running according to Chief Executive magazine.  And as the taxes and regulatory burden increases more and more people are leaving the state for friendlier pastures. You know when things are getting worse when you see other states putting up billboards in your state.

Jobless Claims on the Rise Again.

After digesting the unemployment numbers for the last few days, there is every indication that very few jobs are being created, as this administration continues to flounder.  They can boast all they want about the jobs that have been created in the past year, but the underlying consequences do not reflect the true picture of the job market.  When it is said that their are 766,000 less women working than three years ago, I have to pause and ask what's next? Veterans unemployment rates are also climbing at an alarming rate. This weeks new claims reached a four week high of 386,000 which are 6,000 more than the previous week.

Its hard to get excited when only 69,000 jobs were created in May. The revised job numbers for March and April show that 49,000 fewer jobs were created than originally  reported.  It just keeps getting worse and with no end in sight for an already floundering economy the only good news is it will spell doom for the re-election efforts of Obama. On June 14, 2012 House Speaker John Boehner released the following video showing the jobs bills that have been passed by the House but  still sit languishing in the Senate. Harry Reid has virtually put a halt to all legislation that would put people to work and jump start the economy.

ANOTHER UNEMPLOYMENT STATISTICAL LIE HITS JUNE 1, 2012


As one month ends and another begins one can only wonder what kind of magic the Obama Administration will cook up with the release of the May 2012 unemployment results. Any sane person will look at these numbers with disdain and anger while the left will do their best to spin the results as a positive look at how the economy is "IMPROVING".  Using the word improving with any connection to this administration is a tough undertaking but it must be said. They have lived in a fantasy world for the last 41 months and new data suggests that the remainder of this presidency (7 months) will be more of the same.  

A closer analysis of April's job numbers is not very encouraging as there were 1,388 mass layoffs affecting 136,500 people.  The average new unemployment claims for the last four weeks is still hovering around 375,000 with no indication that this number will fall in the immediate future.

APRIL HIRING PITIFUL 115,000 YET RATE DROPS!!!

Numbers released from the Labor Department shows April unemployment dropped to 8.1% as non-farm payrolls increased only by 115,000. As earnings fell flat less business's are hiring as the economy continues to sputter along toward the November elections.  This is not good news for the Obama Administration as they were hoping for a pickup of +160,000 jobs.  Last months jobs report was adjusted upward to +154,000. 

The telling signs of this jobs report is the drop in the number of people that fell off the unemployment rolls as there benefits expire and they stop looking for jobs. The participation rate dropped to 63.6% from last months 63.8%,  the lowest since 1981 as the change in civilian labor force dropped 364,000.   The unemployed and underemployed is now at 14.5%

What’s in the Cards for April’s Unemployment Numbers?

It will not be good news as the economy continues to  sputters along at an anemic rate.  A more detailed look at March tells us that layoff’s continue across the board as employers took 1, 273 layoff actions involving 121,310 workers across all categories. The number of new unemployment claims in April rose to a 4 week moving average of 381,750, up 6,250 from the previous week.

It was also widely reported this week that half the people with bachelor’s degrees cannot find work.  An analysis shows that over 53% are jobless or underemployed which does not give us any indication that the job market is improving.  The labor force participation rate which is still below 64% is at its lowest rate in more than 10 years.

Next Stop for Democrats, Comedy Central

For the past few days there has been a cornucopia of good material coming out the democrat party. There is no way to explain why the left (which includes both the politicians and the liberal media) has chosen to entertain instead of inform us with their condescending rants day after day with no clear message. It certainly does not give us a warm and fuzzy feeling that these are the people that have been chosen to run our country. It only goes to solidify what most of us already know, we are surrounded by comedians who are masquerading as politicians. I have only had to travel back a few days in time to get material for this routine.

No Good Path to Re-election for Obama


The number of negative events that have hit President Obama this week is not unprecedented but the quality of the bad news (9 on a scale of 1 to 10) should make one think that he is not electable. That’s the good news. The bad news is don't count him out yet.

In the past week we have seen a serious mic gaffe at the nuclear summit and while he was trying to walk back his comments that no one was buying, his top legal minds were getting beaten up in front of the Supreme Court. It was so bad that Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, had to be thrown a lifetime by the liberal justices (I think they truly felt sorry for him). Gas prices continue to rise to unprecedented levels. A recent poll shows 68% of Americans are angry at the president, his approval rating is hovering around 41%, and we won't even mention his comments about Trayvon Martin which has taken us in so many directions it's hard to keep track. The former DNC chairman Howard Dean predicted that the individual mandate would be declared unconstitutional. Current DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz in staying true to her fantasy thinking says that Obama's base is “pretty darn excited” as they were in 2008. I think not. All of this leaves Obama in a very precarious position. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Unemployment Rates to be Reported Friday April 6


On Friday April 6 the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will report the March unemployment numbers. We should be reminded again that it does not even come close to painting the real picture of what's going on.  Regardless of the results the democrats have only one way to spin it and as much as we like to hear positive news when it comes to the economy, it still smells fishy.  The four week moving average for new claims according to the BLS is 365,000 vs. 401,000 for the same period in 2011.  

The December unemployment rate was 8.7% and dropped to 8.3% for January and February. This only tells part of the story as 1.2 million employable people dropped off the radar or just stopped looking. The participation rate which measures the labor force as a percent of the civilian noninstitutional population climbed slightly to 63.9% in February from 63.7% in January.  The participation rate is the lowest since 1984. In the 2011 the civilian population rose by almost 3.6 million, yet the labor force only rose 1.1 million. Those not in the labor force rose by almost 2.5 million. If people were not dropping out of the labor force the unemployment rate would be well over 11%.  According to Gallup, the underemployment rate is hovering around 18%.


It will come as no surprise to anyone that at the rate we are creating jobs it will be at least three years before we even come close to creating enough jobs to get it down to the level of the Bush years (4.0 to 5.8%) (BLS). Gallup is predicting a rate of 8.6% and In-Trade is looking at 8.8% for March 2012.  This will not be good news for the Obama Administration who is coming off a week of missteps, misspeaks and blunders. One can only wonder when the hemorrhaging is going to stop.

ObamaCare Costs are Out of this World

We all remember those infamous words when President Obama pledged that the legislation would cost “around $900 million over ten years”. We knew he was not telling the truth then and he’s not telling the truth now. The truth (if you want to call it that) finally came out compliments of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).  The democrats knew. The republicans knew. My two year old niece knew.  It was all a big lie to sell the American people into believing what some of us already knew, ObamaCare was a bad idea and the cost was going to cost trillions of dollars and not billions of dollars that this country could ill afford.

On Monday March 12, the CBO announced revised figures about the true cost of ObamaCare based on new estimates. I hope you are sitting down. It's going to be $1.76 billion dollars over ten a ten year period starting in January 2013.  What you are thinking at this moment cannot be printed. If it could be, it would probably include several familiar words.  You are more than welcome to mumble them to yourself.

SEBELIUS HAS “NO IDEA” WHAT’S IN OBAMACARE AND WHAT IT WILL COST

On Wednesday March 7, 2012 HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius went before the Appropriations Subcommittee at a hearing on the new health care program.  Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) was questioning Sebelius on a number of issues and at times appeared confused by the questions that were being asked.  Johnson challenged Sibelius over claims that the new health care law will reduce the deficit over the next ten years.  Her response to a number of questions was that she had “no idea” what Johnson was talking about. 


Listening to this testimony by someone of her supposed intellect would make a grown man cry. It did not exactly exude an air of confidence and if this is the best that we can expect from a top official within the Obama Administration we are monumentally screwed.

Rush Limbaugh, Sandra Fluke and the Main Stream Media

Correct me if I am wrong but is Rush Limbaugh running for President?  It's not that it would a bad idea in the scheme of things, but with all that has been written about him lately and not the real issues plaguing our country you would think that the main stream media would have more important things to write about. Who are the democrats running against, Rush Limbaugh or the four remaining presidential candidates? Whether I support Limbaugh for what he said about Sandra Fluke is not the issue. Its a lot bigger than that. The issue is that the MSM is using this as an excuse to cover up the abysmal failure at the hands of the Obama Administration. Americans are smarter than that and they will not be fooled by the deflection that is taking place by not only Obama but the liberal media that is hell bent on getting him elected to another four year term.  No news is good news for the democrats if they think they are going to pull this off and suck us in to believing the lies.  Its not going to happen.  You know the real truth and its not going to change anything. We were fooled once, never again.

Has Congress Become Institutionalized??


Definition of institutionalized:  Having become an established custom or an accepted part of the structure of a large organization or society because of having existed for so long.

Now that you know the meaning, we can now all agree that Congress fits in this category. Seven members of Congress that have become institutionalized at different levels need to be shown the door today in order of years in congress are as follows:

1. Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) 14th Congressional District, Elected 1964
2. Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA) 13th Congressional District, Elected 1972
3. Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) 30th Congressional District, Elected 1975
4. Congressman Jim Clyburn (D-SC) 6th Congressional District Elected 1992
5. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) 10th Congressional District, Elected 1996
6. Congressman John Tierney (D-MA) 6th Congressional District, Elected 1996
7. Congresswoman Laura Richardson (D-CA) 37th Congressional District Elected 2007


We have become so accustomed to electing the same people year after year, that it’s easy to forget that they serve at the pleasure of their constituents. The time has some to clean house and elect representatives that are going to start working for us and not for their own self interests.  The seven have served 182 years of combined service from John Conyers who has served 48 years to Laura Richardson who has only served 5 years.  It does not take a Rhoades Scholar to figure out career politicians should be destined for the scrap pile and this is the year to do it. 

Let’s start with the newest of the seven and that would be Rep. Laura Richardson of California.  She has definitely made a name for herself in five short years in Congress.  Richardson was elected in a special election in 2007 to fill a vacancy resulting from the death of Juanita Millender-McDonald. In 2011 Richardson was named by Judicial Watch as one of the “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians”.  In addition to this she has been accused of numerous ethics violations relating to the use government employees for political purposes when she allegedly ordered aides to work on her campaign on government time. Rep. Richardson has claimed racial bias as a reason for the charges. A change of districts means Richardson is being challenged by new democrat Rep. Janice Hahn, who was elected in a special election in June 2011. 

John Tierney who hails from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has had his share of problems since being elected in 1996, beating two-term Congressman Rep. Peter Torkildsen in a hard fought battle. In 2010 his wife Patrice Tierney was charged in U.S District Court to four counts of “aiding and abetting the filing of false tax returns” by her brother, Robert. She pled guilty and was later sentenced to 30 days in prison and five months of house arrest. Even with this black cloud hanging over his head during the 2010 Congressional campaign and a tough challenge from Bill Hudak, the heavily democratic district decided to re-elect Tierney to office for an eighth term. Let’s not see him elected to a ninth term.

Update: On Tuesday March 6, Rep. Dennis Kucinich was voted out in the primary, by  fellow Democrat Rep. Marcy Kaptur due to redistricting. She will face-off against Republican Samuel (Joe the Plumber) Wurzelbacher in the general election on November 6, 2012.


Since Dennis Kucinich was elected to represent the citizens of Ohio’s10th Congressional District in 1996 he has been one of the most liberal members of Congress voting along party lines over 90% of the time.    During his challenging years as Mayor of Cleveland from 1977 to 1979, he survived a recall election but was voted out of office by Republican George Voinovich.  In January of this year Kucinich along with four of his democratic colleagues sponsored the “Gas Price Spike Act of 2012”. The tax would be from 50 percent to 100 percent of the “surplus earnings.” It would be administered by another mammoth new government bureaucracy, the Reasonable Profits Board. The issue with this bill is no one knows what “surplus earnings” means.  It is just another tax that would be passed along to consumers by way of higher gas prices.  What we need is less tax and spend, and more fiscal conservatism from Congress and Kucinich is not up this challenge. 

Rep. Jim Clyburn has served the good people of South Carolina for almost 20 years but to what end?  In 2009 when Boeing announced that they would be building a facility to build the new 787 Dreamliner he hailed the news as good for South Carolina. Clyburn said, “Boeing is a game-changer for South Carolina” and praised the move by saying “This program here is to further the top three priorities in the state: jobs, more jobs and many more jobs.”  When the NLRB brought a lawsuit against Boeing for “unfair labor practices” Clyburn was conspicuously absent.  His silence on the issue was deafening, because he neither objected to the NLRB lawsuit nor supported it.  It was all about jobs and he did not want to upset the Obama administration’s anti-job agenda. Jobs are the #1 priority in this country and his time as an effective lawmaker has been overshadowed by his indifference to the people that elected him to serve. 

Rep. Henry Waxman.  What can be said about him that is not already known?  At 72 years old he is one of the senior members serving in Congress since 1974. He also served from 1969 to 1974 in the California State Assembly.  His current district serves a very rich enclave that includes Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and West Hollywood.  With the new congressional districts that have been approved by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission his district now serves an area that spreads from the mountains of Malibu to the beach communities south to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. I am sorry to say that I am now located in his district.  He is probably going to win this year again.  The only way that we can stop him in his tracks is to make sure that Congress remains in control of the republicans, therefore rendering him ineffective in his democrat agenda which includes “Cap and Tax. 

Has anyone noticed how angry Rep. Pete Stark gets when he is addressing his constituent?  These are the same people that they have elected him to serve them and not the other way around.  It is profoundly noticeable when he is questioned about his policies and if he does not like the question he deflects to his default position, “anger”.  Having been elected in 1972 which by the way is the same year that Richard Nixon won 49 of the 50 states against George McGovern it is hard to believe that a democrat got elected to anything that year. Since 1998 he has won his district with over 70% of the vote.  He is a tough opponent in a highly democratic district but with right candidate in this volatile climate, he is beatable.  You just have to ask yourself, “Is he the best for the job at hand”?

Detroit has become the poster child for 50 years of democrat control and if Rep. John Conyers has anything to say about it since he got elected in 1964, it will continue its downward spiral to oblivion.  We have seen the demise of the auto industry at the hands of union control.  As for the American dream of raising a family and having to live a good life, it has turned to despair and misery and one can only imagine what the future holds for the good citizens of Michigan. Detroit was considered one of the great manufacturing cities of the world.  The population of Detroit dropped 25% in the last 10 Years (2010 U.S. Census). There are rows upon rows of empty houses.  Neighborhoods have been decimated by the exodus and there is no end in sight.  The good people of Michigan have been ignored all for the good of the unions. Until you decide to wake up and demand accountability from your representative, it will continue with no end in sight.  It’s time to rid this country of career politicians and Rep. Conyers must go.

For those that are represented by this group, you have to ask yourself if they have done the job that they were elected to do.  In most cases the answer will be no, but they still manage to get your vote time after time. We cannot ignore the hypocrisy any longer. We must vote the incumbents out and get new blood and new ideas flowing that will change the dangerous course that this country is on. We must change the institutionalization of Congress. It is now up to you to further your education with respect to your current representation and draw your own conclusions.  It is you and only you that can make a choice, “Vote for more of the same or time for a change”. I vote for “Change”.”.

A NOTE TO MAXINE WATERS



I am writing this note to you on behalf of the American people. In 1990 you were elected to serve your constituents and the citizens of the United States. You were given the “PRIVILEGE” of serving them, but you have done nothing but line your pockets off the backs of your constituents and nothing more. You have become rich while the people in your district are suffering even more than ever. You are an embarrassment to your office and do not deserve to hold theoffice that you have been elected to. Your continued hate speeches do nothing but enrage and divide. You continue to embarrass yourself and your party every day that you are inoffice. You have no ideas to bring forth so you vilify those that do. 

You have been named as one of the top ten corrupt politicians in congress time and time again yet you continue unabated and act like you are a victim. You are not a victim but you continue to victimize all of those around you. You have told the tea party to go to hell and you have called two esteemed leaders Speaker of the House Boehner and Congressman Cantor "DEMONS". This is disrespectful to them and the people they serve and “WE THE PEOPLE” and you should be admonished for this. These are not the words that should ever be coming from a member of Congress. 

It is an abomination and an insult to the America I love and the America you live in to continue to speak in a way that weakens all of us. It is a daunting task to run this country and you have done nothing to help and everything to undermine those you are supposed to serve. Until the day you are swept from office I will continue to expose you for who you are and nothing less. It's time for you to say goodbye and write your book of lies.

Sheila Jackson Lee - Your Time is up.


People have lost their fervor for this country because of people like Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX).  She astounds us with her continuous chorus of racism but does nothing to stop it.  She and others in the democrat party are the reason this country is on a permanent downward trend.  Have they done anything positive in the past fifty years to help this country?  The answer is clearly no.  The vitriolic fanning of the flames has got to stop and stop now. The democrat party has nothing new to offer. Their only path to victory is to cast aspersions upon those among us that do care about this country. The leadership in this country has failed us.

Recently, Rep. Lee marked the 400th day of the GOP do nothing congress.  She said “Americans cannot afford another year of a Republican Congress that fails to focus on jobs, refuses to strengthen our middle class, and tries to end Medicare guarantee.” None of the accusations are true. The Republican controlled House has passed nearly 30 common sense jobs bills since regaining control of Congress in 2010. All of the bills are stalled in the Senate by Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV).  Rep. Lee only has to look to the democrats in the Senate to see where the problem lies, but she is blinded by her own agenda. Time and time again President Obama has proposed jobs bills that do nothing but increase the deficit and his past history in this area have been a total failure in terms of job creation.  

Recently it was reported that $60 million in earmarks went to college’s that employed relatives of lawmakers.  Included was $5.25 million that was directed to Rep. Lee’s husband while he was vice president of student affairs and vice chancellor at the University of Houston.  Even though she was just one of many, it highlights the improprieties that occur with regularity in Congress and must be stopped. In another questionable statement Rep. Lee admonished Pepsi for an ad that ran during the super bowl last year. At that time she said that the ad was “Insulting to woman of all colors”. 

We have a serious problem in this country.  In the past Rep. Lee has stooped to the level of nonsense that can only come from a democrat.  On February 10th Rep. Lee had the temerity to say “Republican’s want to take away the essence of all religious faith”, yet is it her hero President Obama who wants to scrap Article 1 of the Bill of Rights that says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”.

Is this the essence of the people that we want running our government?  The democrats have gone out of their way to accuse republicans of racism.  Martin Luther King said “I look for the day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character”. When we decide who is most qualified we should look for those that have the ability to bring people together and not divide them. Race bating does not bring people together and does everything to divide us. We have to make sure they make the right choices for those of us that they represent.  We do not want those among us that are running for their own personal agenda. It is time to replace those that have taken us and government for granted and elect a new breed of politician to deliver this country back to where we once were.  The democrats have done nothing but take a dependent approach to the problems facing this country. It is time for wholesale change and no stone should be unturned to find and elect people that truly care about America.

Support the F-35


With Iran and North Korea continuing to pose a threat in very different parts of the world, the U.S. cannot let down our guard.

Proposals to cut our military are ill-conceived and dangerous.  The F-35 is an important part of defending our country and our allies.  With countries like China and Russia developing their own stealth fighters, we need to keep up production of the Joint Strike Fighter and fend off attempts by Congress and the administration to undermine it.

Do your part and tell your Congressman that you support the F-35 fifth-generation stealth jet - the most advanced multirole aircraft ever designed.  Visit www.f35.com for more information.Support the F-35.

OBAMA MUST GO

In the past couple of weeks I have been called out by a number the readers on the topic of my weekly blog postings. Their main concern was that my reporting on the presidential primary season has been conspicuously absent. The only response I have is “Guilty as Charged”.  And with that said I would like to explain my logic. The subjects that I have been concentrating on are the happenings within the Obama Administration and the destruction they are serving up on a daily basis.


I have discussed Obamacare, jobs, ACORN and many others. This has been a well-planned out strategy to address the issues that are facing this country and meet them head on.  We can talk about the presidential primary season at length if needed but we already know that we want Obama out of the White House. Anything that I can say about the primary process pales on comparison to the information that Americans need to know about the subjects that they will not read in the main stream media.


I am doing what I feel is necessary to dethrone Obama from his imperial Presidency in any way that I can.  You could say that I am a one man army capable of anything, but this is not the case.  I am counting on all the people to fight the cause as hard as I am. During the Bush presidency the press did not have any trouble blasting him at every corner no matter what he did good, bad, or indifferent.  The liberal press is not following the same logic when it comes to Obama and his band of merry men and women.  They have ignored his American killing policies at every turn.  They have turned him into a hero of the people which is the farthest from the truth that you can get.


His latest antics have caused many of us anguish and concern with his usurping of Congress and the Constitution. He has named four more of his radical friends to positions in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the NLRB all in the name of expediency, total control and politics to further his “I can do anything I want and who’s going to stop me” campaign. But in the name of fairness I have to give him credit for his asking Congress to consolidate six agencies into one, eliminate the Department of Commerce and save us $300 Billion over 10 years.  This equates to savings of about 1/400 of the $1.2 trillion increase in the debt limit that the president is seeking from Congress.  This is perfect timing as it gives him another blank check to spend until after the November election. And by the way the 1000 to 2000 jobs that this consolidation will eliminate through attrition are small potatoes compared to the 200,000 plus jobs he has added since taking office.  It’s up to you to decide if this is an election ploy or he is doing this for the good of “We the People”.


This past week has seen him replace his Chief-of-Staff again (This is number 3).  He has picked none other than Jack Lew, another Wall Street insider who reaped millions in benefits from his past employers by betting against the collapse of the housing market.  If that weren’t enough to handle, he has promoted Cecilia Munoz as Director of the Domestic Policy Council.  She came to the White House in 2009 from The National Council for La Raza which has strong ties to ACORN, SEIU, and George Soros.  It is any wonder that this president has used “We need four more years to finish what we started” in his never ending campaign. 


I have done my best to keep people informed of the little things that the White House has done and kept below the radar by the liberal press.  Now it is your job to pass this information to others and do what is right for this country by electing a Republican as next President of the United States.  It is up to us to do the right thing and win this country back from those that are intent on destroying us.

Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Thank you for not Being a Republican

Recently we have seen an upturn in the number of members of the democrats that have taken to the cleaners by not only the conservative media but from people in their own party. This includes the main stream media and the left wing ideologues on the talk shows that have also been proved wrong in front of their audiences. Lawrence O’Donnell, Chris Mathews and Ed Shultz from MSNBC again proved that there rhetoric is not fooling anyone including John Sununu former Governor of New Hampshire on the night of the NH Primaries.  But I will have to say they did keep their cool when they continued to get horsewhipped on every subject they touched on.

But my all-time favorite person that has a history of bending the truth is none other than current DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz. She has to be the epitome of what is wrong with the Democrat party on all levels.  She has time and time again tried valiantly to convince those among us that the direction that this country is heading is correct and the only way to go. In her recent attempt to justify Romney’s “Loses” in Iowa and New Hampshire she used almost the same talking points.  She said that “It was a bad night for Romney, A great night for Democrats” in Iowa and “He came out of this primary as a wounded candidate” in New Hampshire.  Even Mitt Romney felt sorry for her.  And it’s hard not to overlook that the incumbent president only got 86% of the vote in the democrat caucuses, and he ran unopposed.

She has continued to amaze us all as she continues to blame the Tea Party for the Tucson shootings and her continued support of the Occupy Wall Street movement which includes the stabbing of a police officer in NYC on January 2, 2012.  She had this to say about the Tea Party shortly thereafter “You had town hall meetings that (the Tea Party) tried to take over, and you saw the same type of conduct at those town hall meetings.  When they come in and disagree, you are not just wrong, you’re the enemy”.  There have been millions of people that have attended Tea Party rallies all over the country and there have been no arrests, unlike the OWS encampments that have had seen arrests in the thousands.

At other times she has said that the republicans have declared “a war on woman”, and taking our voting laws “literally back to Jim Crow”.  When asked by David Gregory of NBC after she claimed that President Obama was able to “turn the economy around” Gregory responded, "Whoa, whoa.  Let me just stop you there. Clearly, the economy has not been turned around.  You just saw those numbers.  Americans don't believe that's the case."  And again she blamed George Bush as everyone in their party still continues to do.  These comments along with many others have to keep you wondering why she is allowed to open her mouth let alone not be shown the door. 


All the while that she is traversing the country in support of this administration with her dime store rhetoric, she has left her constituents that have continually elected her since 2004 fending for themselves.  It is hard to imagine that she would ever get elected in the first place, no less four times.  It is at times like this that I am glad that she is not a republican.  If she would have done for the republicans what she has done for the democrats we would be a third world country.  Oh wait, this “IS” where we are headed.

Time to Get Back to Basics and Elect a New President

Since 2009 we have endured a government out of control, partisan bickering like nothing we have seen in our life time, ballooning deficits and a president who thinks that sharing the wealth is the way this country should be run.  While he is out golfing (90 times at last count), and flying around the county campaigning for four more years of misery, we as a nation are in steep decline.  There has been no leadership to speak of from anyone and the most important election of our lifetime is just ten months away.  Legislation is going to screech to a grinding halt at all levels and no one at the helm seems to care that we have had no budget in three years and a spending problem that shows no signs of abating.

Some analysts tell us that we are in a recovery while others say that it will be years before we see any noticeable improvement and the economic indicators are all over the map.  If the economists can’t agree how do they expect the average citizen to figure it out?  Congress is in a free fall and with a 12% approval rating we have stopped trusting them to do what’s right for the American people.

Now that the holidays are behind us it’s time to ramp up the pressure in the upcoming election.  We have to give it to the democrats with both barrels if we are turn this country around.  The last three years have brought us to the brink of bankruptcy with this administration in charge of our country.  This regime is using policies that have known nothing but failure in the past by every president that has tried yet they are still intent on trying them again with the same results. We must not, we must not, we must not elect this president again for his failures are the countries failures.

How many more times are we going to hear the term “Millionaires and Billionaires” being bantered about by millionaires in our government.  They are delivering a message to themselves but not one of them has come forward to donate one penny to pay for their plan.  They are talking the talk but when it comes to walking the walk they are nowhere to be found.

We have lost all faith in our leaders from the top down. The only road that the democrats see is the road to failure.  Time after time we have been promised everything and some have been suckered into believing the message, only to find out that we have been lied to again.   Now is not the time to be complacent.  We can’t just wake up one morning and say, ‘I wish I had done something when I had the chance’.  It’s not enough to expect someone else to effect change.  It is up to each and every one of us to get involved.    

Common sense thinking must be at the top of the list of priorities.  We have all seen what has happened in other countries and if it we keep on this path it could happen here as well.  We don’t have the luxury of turning to other countries to bail us out.  We are all alone in the world.  Let us not fall prey to the obvious.  Now is the time to elect a  new President and Congress that will do what it takes.  The game is in your hands and you must win at all costs or it we be the end of this country as we know it.
