GOOD-BYE 22nd AMENDMENT

January 28, 2013

There is a move afoot, once again, to repeal the 22nd Amendment which was added to eliminate the future possibility of monarchy rule in the United States.  We have already seen the calculated erosion of our Constitution through liberal court rulings, presidential edicts, and abusive, over-restrictive regulation.  The foundation for an absolute monarchy is made possible through exactly this type of disintegration.  Obama has, since before his first election, been referred to as the Second Coming of the Lord and he has treated the presidency as such.

AMENDMENT XXII

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.  But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

Section 2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress.

The Fundamental Transformation of America is in progress with government becoming bigger and more powerful with each law, regulation, and restriction imposed upon us.  The increase of entitlement dependency brings with it not only a need for continuance but augmentation of those entitlements.  Job growth and economic stability, though spoken of constantly by our leader, are not goals for the near future.  Subordination and even subservience to the government are.  The government is now overbearing and no longer serving the citizens, it is requiring that we feed it.

Representative, Jose Serrano (D -NY) recently introduced H.J.Res 15, aimed at repealing the twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms any individual may serve as President.

We saw in the most recent election that the Democratic machine is capable of producing 103% turnout of registered voters in a district, all of whom voted for Obama.  We know that the Attorney General oversees and conveniently covers for impertinent and downright illegal indiscretions of agencies under his jurisdiction, and we know that the president ultimately and rather regularly cloaks truth by invoking executive privilege.  All recent presidents have used the “National Security” defense to seclude the truth from the public.  The Department of Homeland Security eviscerates our freedoms, calling it assurance of our safety.  This behavior will only evolve and become increasingly constrictive to our unalienable rights with the chucking of presidential term limits.

Rep. Serrano and others have, in the past, introduced legislation to repeal of the 22nd Amendment.  None of the attempts, to date, received enough votes for passage.  This or perhaps the next attempt could do the trick.  If not, there’s always the declaration of martial law to assure continuity of rule.  I say rule, not governance, because that is what we now have.

For those of you on the left embracing the thought of an everlasting Obama presidency, be mindful that a coup d’état could mean an ongoing conservative dictator in the Oval Office.  Neither one is right for the United States.

THE NIGHTLY LIAR NEWS CREWS COULD NOT CARE LESS AND REMAIN SILENT

January 25, 2013

Lies deceit, dissuasion, diversion, blaming, and finger-pointing are not new to government.  They are, however, blatantly obvious and deliberate with the current administration.  For each felonious attempt to weasel power, rights, and privileges from us or otherwise shamelessly subvert the Constitution, there occurs a sham inquiry by congress.  The public showing is just that, a show.  The Democrats layer accolades upon the perpetrator for having done the job well under unfortunate or adverse conditions and offer a few soft-ball questions in attempt to make it look like they want answers.  They always know the answers to their irrelevant questions in advance and simply want them on record.

After numerous lengthy delays, Republican investigative committee members receive a few printed sheets, blackened with redaction ink.  Sworn testimony from presidential appointees brings forth a grandiloquent verbal lap dance.  When that fails to satisfy the questioners, he or she testifying receives the blessing of the President to discontinue charade via Executive Privilege.  The media refuses to invoke their investigative reporters to assist with any fact finding because they choose to assist the administration that shares their political views.

“Fast and Furious”, operated by BATFE and headed by Eric Holder’s (Social) Justice Department helped with the killing of thousands of Mexican Nationals, tourists and law enforcement personnel including two of our own Border Patrol.  A few underlings received reassignment within the government or early retirement with full benefits.  Only abstraction remains regarding the operation, the expected outcome, or why there was no identifiable internal oversight or management.  The nightly liar news crews could not care less and remain silent.

Green energy giveaways totaling nearly $3 billion went to companies whose executives either donated directly or bundled large amounts of cash for the DNC or Obama election campaigns.  To date, well over half of the recipients filed bankruptcy, but not before distributing 5, 6, and 7 figure bonuses to the “C” level personnel.  All told, taxpayers indirectly contributed $2.14 billion to re-elect President Obama.  The nightly liar news crews could not care less and remain silent.

While Solyndra did receive some warranted attention, it was primarily due to the amount of stimulus money received to remain viable.  Little attention followed regarding the speed with which they shuttered the doors and put employees on the unemployment roles.  Of the $535 million taxpayer dollars the company received, almost 10% was approved by the liberal bankruptcy court for executive bonuses because they did their jobs well.  Rush Limbaugh and some FOXNews associates shed light on the travesty, but the nightly liar news crews could not care less and remain silent.

Perhaps my favorite story of the donor bailouts is that of Fisker Automotive.  Fisker received $529 million taxpayer dollars to hire workers and help with our economic recovery.  Fisker promptly shipped the money to Finland where the company is headquartered to produce the Karma, a high end luxury sports car that only the Hollywood Glitteratzi and other despicable One-Percenters can afford.  The bare-bones Karma carries a base price at $102,000 and first used batteries from A123 Systems (awarded $279 million – now bankrupt).

A few challenges the Karma presents include batteries that become disposable if not kept charged.  Replacement cost for the battery cluster is in the neighborhood of $30,000 and is not covered under warranty.  To be considered also is the cost of charging them to forestall the replacement.  Since the automobile is a plug-in hybrid, not charged while driven, it consumes its electrical energy from those reviled fossil fuel fired electricity generating plants and can cost upwards of $60 per charge.  That charge, however, is capable of propelling the vehicle almost 35 miles before the gasoline engine kicks in and burns more fossil fuel at the EPA rate of 20 mpg.  Congress claims not to have resources to carry out another investigation and the nightly liar news crews could not care less and remain silent.

Most recently, of course, is the Benghazi attack. After dancing her way around the globe to avoid questions, then taking some sick time to distance the inquisition from the event, Hillary agreed to testify.  She accepted full responsibility for the breakdown in security and deaths of Americans.  Then a breath later, she waved her hands before the committee and antithetically retorted, “With all due respect, we had four dead Americans.  Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk who decided they’d go kill Americans.  What difference at this point does it make?  It is our job to figure out what happened.”   The nightly liar news crews could not care less and remain silent.

Well, Hillary, in order to identify who’s in charge of the tall tales and who’s outright lying, it makes a great deal of difference to many of us.  In order to find out why security was so lax on the anniversary of 9/11, it is necessary to investigate.  Why was a coordinated terror attack that wiped out an American consulate in a hostile country given the alert attention and response of a drunk with a cherry bomb having a fun time?  For the American public to know why we are paying inflated salaries to people who skirt responsibility at every opportunity, it makes a big difference.  I, for one, want to hear a word of truth come from this administration other than, “Under my plan, Cap and Trade, your energy costs will necessarily skyrocket”.  I would like to see everyone involved in this, and every government scandal, fired without further ado and without retirement pay or other continued economy breaking, treasury sucking, lifelong federal benefit packages.  But congressional investigations can’t identify who to fire with nothing but lies, deceit, dissuasion, diversion, blaming, and finger-pointing coming forth.

What difference at this point does it make?  Apparently, it makes no difference to the nightly liar news crews could not care less and remain silent.

CORONATION 2013

January 15, 2013

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell wants to banish the Bible from the swearing in ceremony on Jan. 21.  The reason: it’s outdated (read it’s traditional).  Progressives are trying to change everything this country has known, everything that has made it a great (though imperfect) country, and everything that has allowed us world wide respect and influence.

“Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”  Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008 San Juan, Puerto Rico

Breaking that sentence of belief and agenda down into its three primary parts, we first see that it is promoting the change of our conversations. Progressives, like the First Lady, have already made normal speaking so tenuous that many people are afraid to say what they think.  Even when trying to be genuinely polite, someone somewhere will claim to be offended.  If you say radical Muslim, an Imam will claim you are referring to all followers of Islam.  If you say Welfare President, the left will claim that you are belittling the need for help, etc.  If you disagree with any of the radical Marxist ideas of President Obama, you must be a racist.  We have to change our conversation to meet the needs of the left or expect vilification.

Change can be good and traditions do evolve.  However, covertly actuating a cultivated agenda to change traditions (values, values, morals, ethics, etc.) upon a swooning populace is not right.  Once our traditions are set aside and forgotten, it will be easy to cause people to believe they never existed or that others were always part of the culture.  The forced evolution of our traditions began some time ago.  Ask a ten-year-old when Easter break or Christmas vacation will be this coming year.  Most have never heard of them, they only know spring and winter break.  The rapid acceleration of this evolution is now in progress.

The main problem I have with the statement referenced above is the espoused truth shared with the unwashed takers of the nation.  How do you change our history?  The only way is to eliminate or ignore the records of the past and teach our children what the government wants them to believe is history.  If they say it enough times, if it is written in all the text books and suggested reading material, it becomes intrinsic fact to a developing mind.

Once called brainwashing, it made our country’s political opponents look bad.  Today, with a little rhetorical fluff, it is the proper way to educate our youth.  It is a way of inoculating minds against desire to seek other viewpoints.  It is the way progressives keep their herded followers from watching cable news or listening to talk radio.  By demonizing sources other than those influenced and financially backed by the holder of the purse, those of lesser mentality will avoid alternate or contradictory information.  With only one scripted and directed prominence to resource, the professed is truth.

“I will fundamentally transform America?”  “Together we will change this country and we will change the world.”  Barack Obama on the campaign trail in 2007  “We will stand up in this election to bring about the change that won’t just win an election, but will transform America.”

And the transformation is happening quickly with the spread of our wealth to our known enemies in the name of global goodwill and world partnership.  Our children’s teachers replace traditional values with feelings, and the proper feelings (CSCOPE AND TESCCC) are integrated into their revised lesson plans.  The decimation of our military for a more uniform equality around the world seemingly makes some progressives feel safer.

The taking of our guns, destined to start with “assault weapons”, will progress into all defensive devices using powder and projectiles.  It won’t be immediate, but will happen quickly.  At that time, only the government and other criminals will have access to guns.  Law abiding citizens will be defenseless against either or both.

Reconstructing closed military bases into “FEMA” camps for the “protection of those individuals and families displaced by natural disasters” began over two years ago.  Sandy victims were not invited to the warmth and shelter of the emergency centers.  Could there really be another use for these facilities protected by razor wire topped twelve-foot-high fences?

The compilation of all personal data in Bluffdale, Utah goes well beyond name, rank, and serial number.  For civilians that might be name, social security number, and address.  The facility is completely self-contained.  Electricity generation, water collection and distribution, waste disposal, all have backup systems so that there will never be any interruption in data collection.  Unbelievable electronic, electric, armor and manned security protect the site.  The gathered data includes emails, phone conversations, text messages, bank account numbers, credit/debit card and cash purchases, known associates, vehicles owned w/license numbers, etc.  Basically, if it can be ascribed to you as a person, it will appear in the NSA data base for future use “as necessary”.

In 2007, Keith Ellison placed his hand on a copy of the Koran as he was sworn into Congress.  That move, though perhaps appropriate for his faith, may have been the first step away from any avowed oath to support the Constitution of the United States of America.  We are now looking at discarding that allegiance.  Lawrence O’Donnell wants to banish books of faith from the ceremony.

Given the above, together with his statement to Dmitry Medvedev about having more flexibility after the election, is it unreasonable to have concern that we may be under martial law four years from today requiring uninterrupted continuation of the current presidency?  Could all of the above be set into place for Barack Obama to become the Supreme Ruler he believes he is?

KARL MARX WOULD BE PROUD OF OBAMA

January 3, 2013

“There’s more work to do to reduce our deficits, and I’m willing to do it,” Obama commented about the latest attempt at diverting the fiscal cliff.  In Obama speak, he is actually saying, “Read my lips, under my plan you taxes will necessarily skyrocket”.

Obama keeps pledging that he will not raise taxes on the middle and lower-income groups.  In the Obama paradigm, if he says anything that sounds sane or reasonable, the inverse is most likely happening in his mind.  He and his cadre of  minions continue to impose costly regulations on businesses and individuals.  “We the People”, of all income categories, pay the price of these unnecessary and downright inane compliance mandates.  The money being put into the coffers of the government is then wastefully spent.  He keeps demanding more spending and imposing more taxes in the form of fees and fines, but no amount of fiscal rape of citizens will ever mitigate the ever-increasing debt.

The idea is to break the country.   Remember his quote from 2007, “I’m in this race not just to hold an office, but to gather with you to transform a nation”.  The transformation to which he refers is from a nation of prosperity with rich, poor, and middle classes; one in which individuals can move upward through their efforts, into one where every person has a designated station in life from which ascension is nearly impossible.

The latest deal from congress includes an income tax increase for families making over $450k per year.  That is a direct attack on the middle class.  Unfunded spending, however, continues without budget constraints.  The debt ceiling must again be raised amid calls from the socialist left for continued spending without congressional or Constitutional restrictions.

To His Majesty Obama, adherence to the teachings of Saul Alinsky, is glorious compromise.  “But to the organizer, compromise is a key and beautiful word.  It is always present in the pragmatics of operation.  It is making the deal, getting that vital breather, usually the victory.  If you start with nothing, demand 100 per cent, then compromise for 30 per cent, you’re 30 per cent ahead”.  Rules for Radicals P.59

For the past four years Obama has stated that he wants to return to the previous income tax rates for everyone making over $250k per year.  Household income of $250k simply makes a family comfortable and able to enjoy the fruits of their toil.  It does not make them rich.  To take more of their earnings for the government to spend foolishly is sure to deflate the economy further.  Karl Marx would be proud of Obama.

After the fiscal cliff “deal” was finalized on Tuesday night, without hesitation, Obama stated that this win would only be the beginning for his “balanced approach” to deficit reduction and that more tax increases are on the horizon in masque of the massive and unwarranted spending.

“We can’t simply cut our way to prosperity. Cutting spending has to go hand-in-hand with further reforms to our tax code so that the wealthiest corporations and individuals can’t take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren’t available to most Americans. And we can’t keep cutting things like basic research and new technology and still expect to succeed in a 21st century economy.  *Note – there is no mention or forethought to cutting spending for ongoing research of fairy shrimp habitat.  So we’re going to have to continue to move forward in deficit reduction, but we have to do it in a balanced way, making sure that we are growing even as we get a handle on our spending . . .”

Meanwhile, despite working Americans at all income levels struggling to make ends meet, in many cases watching inflation etch away at their savings, Obama, via Executive Order attempted to reward his already well compensated loyal followers with pay increases.

 

We are so very, very fortunate to have at least four more years of Obama’s destruction of our once great country.
