A Government Against the People

Monday, April 21st, 2014

grab 1Slowly, quietly, over decades of regulation by unelected bureaucrats and with the assistance of those elected to pass legislation to advance the cause of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness who have done everything but, lands that once belonged to private individuals and families have been ceded first to the state and then, to the statists.

After decades of backroom deals, bribes, pocket lining and dirty deeds, the land of the western United States now belongs to the United States government.

Just days ago, in a meeting scheduled well before the Battle of Bunkerville, legislators from 9 western states gathered with the goal of kicking the U.S. government off those lands and out of those states.

Bunkerville and the Bundy’s were merely the tipping point of a situation that had already gone well beyond enough is enough.

Ronald Reagan once said that “government is not the solution to the problem…Government IS the problem,” and those words ring as true today, if not more so than they did when first spoken.

According to Idaho Speaker of the House Scott Bedke…forests, wetlands and range lands in his state have fared better and suffered less damage from watersheds and fires than have lands in his state that are under the control of the federal government. There is a good reason for that too. Lands that are managed by the state are lands that are closer to the people who live on or near them than are lands managed by those in Washington DC but there are other reasons too.

Desert Stormed –Patriot Militias Used the 2nd to Protect the 1st

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

2 AMEND 1From Obama and his ballyhooed pen to the abject hypocrisy from the ilk of Feinstein and Schumer, every time a high profile crime takes place  involving a gun, more and more gun control laws are called for by liberals and socialists.

A shooting at a school?

More restrictive gun laws. That’s the answer.

A shooting at a mall or movie theater?

More restrictive gun control laws will fix it.

Mass shootings on a military post?

Yep. You guessed it. More and more and MORE restrictive gun laws and you can just about bet your bottom dollar that, after last weekend’s Bundy Ranch standoff where armed federal agents were intimidated into retreat by equally armed citizens, we’re going to be hearing about the need to restrict We the People from our right to keep and bear arms…again.

It is abjectly absurd what liberals and socialists want you to believe regarding our right to keep and bear arms.

 “I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms. And we recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation—THAT HUNTING AND SHOOTING are part of a cherished national heritage.”

That, from one Barack Hussein Obama who claims to have been a Constitutional professor and wants you to believe that the 2nd Amendment was, of all things, about hunting.

HUNTING???

It is an oft parroted lie by liberals desperately trying to restrict the 2nd Amendment.

“Nobody needs an AR-15 to go hunting.”

Here’s one from that crackpot Diane Feinstein:

Battle of Bunkerville – The New Patriot Revolution Begins

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

blm 1Don’t let the liberals lie and claim there was a “DEAL” struck at the Bundy Ranch last Sunday whereby the BLM agreed to release the cattle they had illegally rounded up.

Don’t buy into the mainstream media soft sell of how the “deal” was something akin to a stand down to allow the courts to further assess the situation because the BLM didn’t want to put anyone in harm’s way either.

Neither is the truth and what the BLM…the Obama regime and the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know is that, in fact, it was what they claim to be the “all talk and no go” Conservatives…Patriots and militia groups that FORCED the feds to cut and run for the time being.

There have been numerous reports regarding what went down and, with so many people claiming this and that, we turn to a source which cannot be impugned.

The unbiased eye of today’s NEW media…

Video.

After attempts by Clark County Sheriff, Doug Gillespie, to bluff the militia Patriot groups into leaving while the BLM and federal agents kept the rustled cattle, the Patriots declined to stand down. In fact, those Patriots made a bold move to exert the power of We the People in a most provoking manner.

Rather than stand their ground…Patriots on foot and horseback approached the barricades erected by the BLM and heavily armed federal agents all the while being ordered by bull horned voices to stop, not approach and back away from those barricades.

The Patriots refused and shouted back their own demands that the BLM and those pointing their weapons directly at advancing Patriots be the ones to leave.

Upon reaching the barricade, something of a confrontation between the Patriot militia groups and an armed federal agent took place face to face with the patriots abjectly refusing to be intimidated in any way.

SCREW the (Environ)Mental Cases – BUILD the PIPELINE

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

The only real obstruction to the Keystone XL pipeline now, much to the dismay of those on work release from (environ)mental asylums, is the Dictator, Obama.

Last Friday, not the 1st or the 2nd, not the 3rd or the 4th environmental impact study regarding that pipeline but, the 5th, and the one that came directly from Obama’s State (of Insanity) Department was released and, just like the previous 4, this one states that there is no environmental reason for NOT  building the 1,179 mile pipeline from Canada to Texas.

A couple of years ago, the greeny weenies complained that the pipeline would cross Nebraska’s Sandhills region and the aquifer but, the Cornhusker state’s Governor, Dave Heineman, ordered a study, found an alternative route avoiding both sensitive areas and, that route was accepted by Canada.

Obama  had pandered to the unions who stand to make bank off the building of the Keystone XL pipeline by delaying parts of Obamacare, just for them.

The problem is, he’s also been pandering to the (environ)mental patients by not signing off on the pipeline.

With Friday’s report, coming from his own administration, Obama now finds himself faced with yet another conundrum.

Does he benefit the United States or China?

Here are the choices…

Obama’s GENIUS Knows NO Bounds

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

In light of the most recent spin thrown against the wall by this current, corrupt administration and their minions in the mainstream media, I think it’s time we take a look at just SOME of what has transpired over the last 4 ½ years.

In no particular order…

This administration engineered Fast and Furious in which they ran guns to Mexican drug cartels and lost track of them.

Those weapons have, so far, led to the murders of HUNDREDS of Mexicans as well as the murder of U.S. Border Agent, Brian Terry and quite likely, that of Agent Jamie Zapata as well.

So stupid was the operation and so inept the cover-up of it that the Dictator had to seal away the evidence with Executive Privilege.

Dumber than a box of rocks.

This administration “invested” taxpayer dollars…HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars in green energy companies which ended up folding faster than you could say, “SOLYNDRA.”

One after another, green energy companies lauded by and spent on by the Dictator closed their doors and yet, to this day, he still insists that green is better than fossil fuels.

Good grief…

Today, WE Choose and Obama Must Lose!!!

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

This is IT!!!

November 6th, 2012.

Today…WE choose.

Obama vs Romney.  Socialism vs Capitalism.  Free stuff vs Freedom.  Arrogance vs Humility.  Corruption vs Competence.   Bigger government vs Smaller government.  Community Organizer vs Successful Businessman.  Appeasement vs Strength.  Lies vs Integrity.

If you really want to boil it down…

Obama wants fewer rich people.

Romney wants fewer poor people.

Our economy is closer to the abyss today that it was 4 years ago. Then, we were in a recession and today, we face the fiscal cliff and Obama shouts…”Forward.”

With Obamacare, Obama engineered the largest single tax increase in American history with 21 NEW taxes…12 of which hit directly against the middle class he claims to embrace. Now, he wants to raise taxes again.

4 years ago, gas prices were $1.84/gallon. Today, it’s $3.50/gallon.

When Obama took office, he inherited a AAA credit rating and today, we’ve been downgraded twice.

Since Obama took office, the average income has dropped by more than $4000.00 and more people have completely dropped out of the workforce than have become employed.

When Obama took office, there were 32 million Americans on food stamps and today, that number has risen to 47 million Americans.

Obama says we’re moving in the right direction. He says things are getting better. Obama says we’re making progress and we shouldn’t stop now. “Forward” he says. “Forward.”

Weekend Edition: I WILL STAND UP!!!!

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

Our Declaration of Independence, one of the greatest documents ever written, ends with these words:

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Those words, which should ring in the ears of every American are followed by 56 signatures.

Each man who affixed his name on that Declaration believed in those words and each did indeed pledge to each other their Lives, their Fortunes and their sacred Honor.

Do you think THEY…”Stood Down?”

Emphatically…They did NOT!

Did the Patriots who fought and died for the idea behind that document…”Stand Down?”

NO THEY DID NOT.

In the ice and snow of Valley Forge…Did Washington…”Stand Down?”

No.

In the years after the war of revolution, when called upon to pen the Constitution, did James Madison “Stand Down?”

No. No he did not.

In the War of 1812, when things looked darkest and the British was sacking the White House…Who “Stood Down?”

No one. In fact, Dolley Madison took the portrait of Washington from the wall and saved it…for the NEW White House.

In the quest to put an end to slavery, did Lincoln “Stand Down?”

The burden of the war between the states was great but, no…NO HE DID NOT “stand Down.”

Our country is FULL of people who never “Stood Down” and it always has been. From those who, with an idea and firm resolve gave birth to this great nation, fought for it, died for it and settled it to those who built it, powered it, explored it and added to it.

Did those who came here from lands far away, who felt free upon seeing Lady Liberty and who learned the language and our culture to make a better life for themselves, their children and their children’s children “Stand Down?”

Certainly not.

His advisers told him not to say it, they told him not to use the line in his speech. It was too forceful they told him…It would be upsetting.

Putting it All on theTable

Monday, October 29th, 2012

We are now a week and a day from the election.

What does Obama have left?

Nothing.

He’s running on empty.

The choice could not be more clear.

Mitt Romney is a man of character.

Obama, a man who’s only campaign rhetoric now is character assassination. Last week, his Chicago thugs recruited Gloria Allred to try and embroil Romney is something related to his testimony in a decade old divorce and child custody case.

A judge look at the “evidence” and told Allred to pound sand.

Mitt Romney has an economic plan to grow the national economy, cut taxes without cutting revenue, put us on a path toward energy independence, focus education on students, teachers and schools instead of the teacher’s unions, create jobs by allowing private industry to flourish and crack down on trading partners who gip the system by manipulating their currency.

Obama has the exact same plan he had 4 years ago which has doubled the deficit and added 6 trillion bucks to the debt, seen 23 million people still looking for work, increased welfare and food stamps to historic levels and led to the most anemic GDP in history.

Mitt Romney understands that peace must be gained through strength, that we must stand with our allies and against our enemies and adversaries, that there can be no daylight between our great nation and the great nation of Israel and that terrorism IS terrorism and we must stay on the offensive against it.

Obama thinks a foreign policy of appeasement and apology combined with his own personal arrogance is the right path.

Mitt Romney has spent 25 years in the private sector growing and managing businesses.

Obama has never run a lemonade stand.

Obama’s “New” Plan Sinking Fast

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Well, well, well…

With 14 days to go until election day, Obama has finally unveiled his NEW and IMPROVED plan for the next 4 years.

The empty chair and opened an empty binder.

It’s time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. Over the past 31 months, American businesses have created 5.2 million jobs. Independent economists project that our economy will create an additional 12 million jobs in the next four years. The President believes we must do even more to grow our economy and strengthen the middle class. The goal of his jobs plan is to strengthen middle-class security by making smart investments in education and training, growing small businesses, promoting technology and innovation, and reducing the deficit.

Good grief…THAT is the opening salvo in the Emperor’s “new” “A Plan for Jobs & Middle Class Security.”

The 23 page glossy pamphlet  goes on to talk about hiring 100 thousand new teachers and building roads and bridges…Raising taxes on the wealthy and using “war savings” to cut the deficit.

1. President Obama’s plan reduces the deficit by more than $4 trillion over the next decade, including $1 trillion in spending cuts he signed into law last summer, and cutting $2.50 in spending for every $1 in additional revenue from the wealthiest families and closing corporate loopholes.

2. The plan makes sure millionaires aren’t paying lower tax rates than many middle-class families.

3. President Obama would commit half of the money saved from responsibly ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to reducing the deficit and the other half to putting Americans back to work rebuilding roads, bridges, runways, and schools here in the United States.

Welcome to the new plan…Same as the old plan.

On Education…

Hey, Obama…What Happened???

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

It was just 4 years ago that things were SO different.

What happened?

That is the question which must be haunting Obama night and day.

4 years ago, he was a rock star and today, a has been.

4 years ago, anything that had anything to do with him was a mob scene with people pushing and shoving to just get a glimpse. Even if they couldn’t get close enough to see, they could say they were there.

Last week, in his Windy City, a fund raiser was, like his glass, half empty.

Perhaps it was the price of admission.

$51.00 per head.

That’s right, Obama only managed to half fill a room at just fifty one bucks per person. That would have NEVER happened just 4 years ago.
