The First Year of Obamunism

2009 Year End Review – Obama’s Failures

To say that this has been a year of “historical firsts” would be an understatement.  For some, it started out as the year of “hope and change.” The rest of us were wise to what “hope and change” really meant.

Today we mark the failures of the Obama Administration’s first year in office.  Failures because there were no “successes” that reasonably minded people can point to.

  • Obama’s phoenix like fall from popularity.  Started the year with a 72% approval rating, ended the year with the lowest rating of any President in the history of the country.  Obama’s “strong approval” rating stands at 25%, which is lower than Bush and Carter at the end of their unpopular terms.  42% “Strongly Disapprove” of Obama, which makes him the most unpopular President ever at the end of his first year in office.



  • Obama’s Failed Iraq Policy   After announcing earlier this year that the War in Iraq is “scheduled to end” by August 31st of 2010, civilian violence in Iraq has been on a steady increase with new suicide bombings claiming the lives of almost 40 Iraqi’s just three days ago.
  • Dithering on Afghanistan for four months, ignoring increased troop requests by his own hand-picked general, Gen. William McChrystal, who originally requested increased troops in August of 2009 to stem the growing U.S. Troop casualties due to a resurgent Taliban.  Obama put politics and appeasing his extreme left-wing base of supporters over the security of our Troops and the United States.
  • Obama’s Decision to Close Club Gitmo, Transfer Terrorists to U.S. Soil (Thomson Federal Prison, Illinois) has probably been the most controversial in his first year in office.  The decision to bring known terrorists onto U.S. soil presents the very real possibility that enemy combatants such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the 1993 WTC bombing and the 9-11 attacks which killed more than 3,000 people will be tried in civilian courts with the full rights of American citizens.  This decision has outraged the families of the 9-11 victims and bitterly divided the country.  Obama’s claims that “Gitmo” was a ‘rallying cry’ for terrorists simply means that Thomson will be substituted for “Gitmo” and make Chicago proper a terrorist target.
  • The Fort Hood Terrorist Attack Jihad at Fort Hood was the largest terrorist attack on American soil since September 11th, 2001.  The Obama Administration’s first reaction was to blame America for jumping to the conclusion that this was an islamist fundamentalist attack on America when in fact that’s exactly what it was.  To this day the Obama administration refuses to call it a terrorist attack.  Joe Lieberman was one of the first to label it as such.  Political Correctness has run amok in our Military, which was afraid to boot Hasan out of the military simply because he was a muslim who preached anti-American hatred and opposed the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  • Northwest Airlines Flight 253 was the second direct attack on U.S. soil since September 11th, 2001 under Obama’s watch.  Again, the Obama administration refuses to call it a terrorist attack even though Al-Qaeda in Yemen has taken credit for the attack.  Demonstrating this Administration’s inability to recognize reality, DHS head Janet Napolitano

Napolitano “The System Worked!”

claimed “the system worked” and that there was no evidence of a “larger plot” despite Yemen Government Officials stating that they were aware of another 300+ terrorists ready to strike at the United States.


  • Three Days for Obama To Respond To Terror Attacks Flight 253 happened on Christmas day.  On December 28th, Obama finally responds to the terror attack.  Most notably, Obama wasn’t informed of the terror attack for three hours after it happened, further demonstrating just how out of touch this Administration is from reality.  Obama supporters criticized President George W. Bush for taking 6 minutes to respond to the September 11th 2001 attacks, where are they now that Obama took three full days to respond to Northwest Airlines flight 253 terrorist attack?   Furthermore, if the system was so “broken” and Obama continues to blame Bush, then why didn’t Obama or Napolitano order a top-down review of airline security their first day in office?  The fact is Obama has no one to blame but himself for this, and all the other failures we’ve outlined above.  He’s clearly in way over his head, and he’s surrounded himself with the equivalent of the keystone cops in his administration. 

Notice The Coward In Chief Wouldn’t Even Take Questions!

As we close out 2009 and look forward to 2010, we in America have the responsibility to right the ship of Government and stop the incompetence of the Community Organizer in Chief’s tyranny against we, the people of the United States.  As such, we eagerly count the days to November 2nd, 2010 when we take back this government from the Socialist/Marxist/Communists that infest our government today.

The Democrats are on notice that real change is coming, one way or the other.

Obama To Finally Address Terrorist Attacks on US Soil

3 Days After Northwest Airlines Flight 253

Compare and contrast the following two situations:

George W. Bush spends 6 minutes finishing reading “My Pet Goat” to a bunch of pre-school children during the 9-11 attacks so as not to create a sense of panic in the room.  After he finishes, he leaves the room, gets a briefing on what’s happening and sets into motion the United States response to the attacks.

Barack Hussein Obama learns of a second terrorist attack on U.S. soil three hours after it happened while vacationing in Hawaii over Christmas.  There is no response from the Obama Administration for three full days after the attack.  The sole response “the system worked” came from his incompetent, inept Department of Homeland Security Czar, Janet Napolitano.

The media pilloried George W. Bush for “wasting 6 minutes” and not reacting appropriately.

The media is defending Barack Hussein Obama’s silence over the last three days.

We report, you decide.

Obama: Indifferent To American’s Security

Sending Lawyers To Do Marine’s Jobs

This morning, Janet Napolitano the head of the Department of Homeland Security told CNN viewers that yesterday “the system worked”, preventing a terrorist attack on U.S. soil in which Northwest Airlines flight 253 and its passengers were almost blown out of the sky by a known terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab.

Which part of the system “worked” Miss. Napolitano? 

Was it the part that ignored warnings from Mutallab’s own father, a respected international banker who was so concerned about his son’s radical Islam views that he warned our embassy in Nigeria?

Was it the part of the system that gave Mutallab an unrestricted Visa to enter the United States?

Was it the part of the system that didn’t put Mutallab on the no-fly list because there “wasn’t enough information?”

Perhaps it was the part of the system that failed to recognize that both Mutallab and Army Major Nidal Malik Hassan (the Fort Hood Islamic terrorist who killed 14) both had ties to extremist Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a known al-Qaeda extremist.

Or perhaps it was the part of the system that allowed Mutallab to transfer flights and enter the United States without being re-checked in Amsterdam before boarding Northwest Airlines flight 253?

Mutullab had red-flags all over him and yet our own Department of Homeland Security failed in its mission to protect the American people.

Were this to happen under the Bush Administration, the hoots and howls for firing the Department of Homeland Security Chief would be sounding non-stop, yet here we have the lamestream media protecting Obama and Napolitano.

For Napolitano to say “the system worked” on CNN’s “State of the Union” show this morning simply flies in the face of common sense that thankfully, most American’s still have.  Were it not for Dutch tourist Jasper Schuringa who tackled Mutullab and extinguished the fire that would’ve detonated the micro bomb, we’d be talking about 278 passengers and 11 crew members deaths on Christmas Day.

The truth is, not a single part of the DHS’ or TSA’s inspections or processes worked.  What did work was an alert Dutchman who saved the lives of those on board.

Rather than send Eric Holder to investigate the “alleged attack” on Northwest Airlines flight 253, the Obama Administration would be better served taking a hard line on these terrorist scumballs by sending in the U.S. Marines to fix the problem.

Obama’s pre-9/11 approach to the defense of America doesn’t serve this country well, and only has the terrorists laughing as they plan more attacks on U.S. soil.  When one of them succeeds, the fault will rest squarely on Obama’s shoulders.

Internet Rumor: DeMint Objection Will Stop ObamaCare

Popular Conservative Blogs Don’t Understand Senate Rules, Republican Party Cannot Stop ObamaCare By Itself

Democrat Implosion Only Way To Stop It Now

Much is being written on a number of popular Conservative blogs and online discussion boards about a procedural move in the Senate executed by Senator Jim DeMint right before Congress went on its Christmas break.

The procedure DeMint invoked was to object to the appointment of conferees, or members of the House and Senate that would be responsible to reconcile the House and Senate versions of “ObamaCare” to produce the final bill that the House and Senate would ultimately have to re-vote on and approve before being sent to Obama’s desk for signature into law.

The claim is that by objecting to the appointment of conferees, the House of Representatives would be forced to vote on the Senate bill produced by Harry Reid without modification or amendments.  This would make the Senate bill dead on arrival in the House of Representatives because the Senate Bill does not contain a ‘public option’ among other things which the far left and unions demanded that the House bill contained.

If we were to stop here, the above would be factually correct and we may take some comfort in watching the fight between the House & Senate ensue as ObamaCare went down in flames.

But the fact of the matter is the House or Senate can at any time, suspend its own rules or vote to modify them to pass any piece of legislation they wish with a simple majority vote. 

Senate Rule 22 – Suspension of the Rules states:

The motion to suspend the rules may be made at any time when no question is pending; or while a question is pending, provided it is for a purpose connected with that question. It yields to all the privileged motions (except a call for the orders of the day), to the motion to lay on the table, and to incidental motions arising out of itself. It is undebatable and cannot be amended or have any other subsidiary motion applied to it, nor can a vote on it be reconsidered, nor can a motion to suspend the rules for the same purpose be renewed at the same meeting except by unanimous consent, though it may be renewed after an adjournment, even if the next meeting is held the same day.

The U.S. Senate may when it wishes to do something that cannot be done without violating its own rules, and yet is not in conflict with the Constitution, suspend the rules that interfere with the proposed action. The object of the suspension must be specified, and nothing else (no other Senate business) can be done under the suspension.

The Form of the motion is made “to suspend the rules and take up for consideration, the resolution ……”  where the resolution is to suspend the rules to pass a particular piece of legislation.

When a motion to suspend the rules has been seconded, it shall be in order, before the final vote is taken to debate the proposed suspension of the rules for one-half the time normally given to debate, or forty-five minutes.

In both the House and Senate, the practice is to “suspend the rules and pass” a resolution, whatever that resolution may be.

Much as I hate to be the one that breaks the bubbles of my Conservative friends, the fact is as I’ve demonstrated Congress (both the House and Senate) may suspend the rules of their respective chambers  to pass whatever they want – so long as it is not in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States of America.

As the Democrats have sufficient majorities in both the House and Senate and can suspend the rules at will, there is literally nothing that can be done to force the House of Representatives to vote on the Senate’s version of “ObamaCare” thus forcing the legislation to fail.  All the Democrats need to do is suspend the rules – for which they have enough votes to do so – and convene the conference required to reconcile the House and Senate versions of the legislation.

This of course does not mean that the two versions can or cannot be reconciled and brought to vote, it simply means that the Republican Party is relegated to the sidelines to watch the entire effort.  It will take an implosion of the Democrats to stop ObamaCare.

Sorry to burst your bubbles, Red State and Free Republic.

Merry Christmas - 2009


Luke 2:9-14
And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. (10) And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. (11) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (12) And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” (13) And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, (14) “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

ObamaCare Passes Senate

Democrats Stick Taxpayers With $2.5 TRILLION Socialized Medicine Bill

That’ll be the headline in 2010 unless something is done quick to stop this monstrosity, so let’s put the true cost of this “bill” out there for the American people to decide whether or not they think they can afford what the Democrats are selling.

The Democrats are irresponsibly and disingenuously claiming that the bill would cost $871 billion over 10 years. But that's not what the Congressional Budget Office (CBO0 says. Rather, the CBO says that $871 billion would be the costs from 2010 to 2019 for expansions in insurance coverage alone.

But less than 2 percent of those “10-year costs” would kick in before the fifth year of that span. In its real first 10 years (2014 to 2023), the CBO says that the bill would cost $1.8 trillion — for insurance coverage expansions alone. Other parts of the bill would cost approximately $700 billion more, bringing the bill's full 10-year tab to approximately $2.5 trillion — that according to the CBO.”

And what do we get?  First we get to pay an additional $1 trillion dollars in taxes from 2014 – 2023, and another trillion would be taken away from Medicare.

Health Care premiums will also rise on average of 21% a year over the first five years of the legislation the Senate just passed from 2014 – 2019, effectively doubling health care premiums.

The Congressional Budget Office also says that the Reid bill ‘double-counts’ savings and that once the double-counting is removed the bill actually increases the Federal Deficit some $200 billion dollars a year.  How will the Government overcome this deficit?

Simple, they’ll cut Medicare and Medicaid payments to doctors, forcing rationing of health to this country’s elderly.

As our Congressmen and Senators come home for the Christmas break, it’s my fervent hope that each and every concerned taxpayer in this country storms their offices and gives them hell for passing this Obamanation of a bill in the U.S. Senate. 

This is the last chance to kill this thing America.

OBamaCare: Un-Constitutional

Attorneys in Seven States Preparing Legal Challenges

The “Nebraska Compromise” as it’s come to be known, negotiated by Ben Nelson (D. NE) is under fire from seven Attorney Generals in Alabama, Colorado, Michigan, North Dakota, Texas and Washington state which are probing the Constitutionality of the payoff given to Ben Nelson in exchange for his vote in favor of ObamaCare.

The “Nebraska Compromise” permanently exempts Nebraska from paying the same Medicaid taxes that all other 49 states must pay.

There are at least six (6) Constitutional challenges that lay in wait for ObamaCare to pass, which ultimately will end up in the United States Supreme Court for final resolution.  Today we outline what those challenges are and why you should take heart that should ObamaCare pass (and I predict it will….) the United States still has a Conservative Supreme Court which will overturn ObamaCare before it ever gets implemented.

First is the case of the United States v. Butler (1936) in which Justice Owen Roberts stated in the majority opinion that Congress’ reach is that of matters of National interest, not of local welfare.  “Local Welfare” clearly means the individual states.  United States v. Butler prohibits Congress from treating one state differently than any other state for an impremissible regulatory purpose (of which ObamaCare qualifies.)  The “Nebraska Compromise” also violates the Equal Protection clause of the United States Constitution by providing special protections for Nebraskans that are not provided for all other citizens of the U.S.

Second, in the United States v. Reynolds, the US Supreme Court ruled that coercing a citizen of the United States to enter into a contract violates the “wheel of servitude which was expressly prohibited in the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution which prohibited slavery.  This means the Federal Government cannot force the citizenry of this country into Government Run Healthcare by illegally seizing their money to do it.  The USSC defined “servitude” as “the state of being a slave or completely subject to someone more powerful” which again, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution prohibited.

Third, the Takings Clause.  Part of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibits private property from being taken without just compensation.  While the courts have said there is “no set formula” to determine when a regulation becomes a taking, several factors the court considers are the economic impact of the regulation, the degree to which the regulation interferes with investor backed expectations, and the character of the government action.  Yesterday, Senator John Ensign (R. NV) called for an examination of the Constitutionality of whether the Federal Government can require/force American’s to purchase a product under the Fifth Amendment and the Takings Clause.  (This in response to provisions in the Reid bill that will force all individuals to purchase health insurance.)

Fourth, the Reid legislation (or any other “Health Care Reform” bill which forces individuals to buy insurance) is a direct violation of the Tenth Amendement to the Constitution which explicitly declares “All rights not delegated to the Federal Government are expressly reserved for the states or the people.”  As the individual states did not give the Federal Government their consent to cede their power over their health care systems, the Federal Government via Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Hussein Obama are violating every American’s Tenth Amendment rights. (Impeachable offense, anyone?)

Fifth, Section 3403 on p. 100 of the Reid bill states “ shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection.” In other words, if President Barack Obama signs this measure into law, no future Senate or House will be able to change a single word of Section 3403, regardless whether future Americans or their representatives in Congress wish otherwise.”  As Illinois’ own Senator Dick Durbin said on Fox News Sunday Morning, no Congress can bind another Congress to action, it’s un-Constitutional.

Sixth, again in Section 3403 the goal of the legislation is to "reduce the per capita rate of growth in Medicare spending" - the regulatory power that effectively establishes the IMAB as the ultimate arbiter of the cost, quality and quantity of health care to be made available to the American people. These are the “Death Panels” that Sarah Palin referred to.  As we all know, the Reid bill strips $500,000,000 (that’s five hundred billion) from Medicare, so let’s all hope and pray that Grandma and Grandpa don’t get sick. 

So take heart my friends. While ObamaCare will pass the House and Senate and Obama may sign it, the chances of it surviving the six legal challenges I’ve outlined above are somewhere between slim  and none (and Slim just left the building.) 

The Democrats are committing political suicide here.  Just give them a little more rope and a little more time.

The Way To Stop "Health Care Reform" Without Firing A Single Shot

State Nullification: A Fast Growing Movement

The Tenth Amendment Center posted an excellent definition and analysis of State Nullification, which has grown almost exponentially since Barack Hussein Obama seized the White House with a liberal Democrat majority:

When a state ‘nullifies’ a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or ‘non-effective,’ within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as that state is concerned.

It’s peaceful, effective, and has a long history in the American tradition. It’s been invoked in support of free speech, in opposition to war and fugitive slave laws, and more. Read more on this history here.

Regarding nullification and health care, there’s already a growing movement right now. Led by Arizona, voters in a number of states may get a chance to approve State Constitutional Amendments in 2010 that would effectively ban national health care in their states. Our sources here at the Tenth Amendment Center indicate to us that we should expect to see 20-25 states consider such legislation in 2010.
Is State Nullification the way to stop Obamacare?  If we accept the principle that what's happening in D.C. with Democrats "opposing" Obamacare nothing but bread and circuses for the masses, then we'd all best get to work on changing over our State Legislatures to nullify Obamacare and the rest of the Obama agenda.

Health Care Reform Opponents: Birthers, Racists, Right Wing Militia Members

Chicago-Way Politics Infects R.I. Senator

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) today took shots at those who are not supporting the health care legislation. During a floor speech, he excoriated Senate GOP members for holding up the pending health care bill and accused their supporters of being birthers and fanatics in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups. He started off by citing an editorial from the Manchester Journal Inquirer, which used the insult "lunatic fringe.":

So I guess this makes Sen. Whitehouse and Obama's followers sheep then?

When Democrat Idealogues Collide

Liberal Media vs. Liberal Congresswoman

What happens when two Liberal Democrat Apologists disagree on Health Care Reform? 

For starters Ratigan (appropriate name) accuses Schultz of using Republican talking points.  Now that’s high comedy!

They’re imploding.  They’ve lost grips on reality and in 2010 they’re going to lose Congress.  One can sense the panic.

Pass the popcorn, this is going to be fun to watch when “health care reform” fails and the Democrats eat their own for an entire year before the mid-term elections in 2010.

Desperate Dem’s Hiding Health Care Bill

Why Harry Reid Won’t Show What’s In “His Plan”

While Harry Reid has done his level best to hide the “health care reform” bill that’s making its way through the Senate, details have been leaking out about the compromises – and remaining details – contained within the bill that frankly would piss off most American’s if they knew the facts about it.

In large part, the current bill has been ‘gutted’ by countless amendments, leaving for the most part an empty framework that sets up more government bureaucracy and forces taxpayer funded abortions on all taxpayers.

There has been little said about all the increased TAXES that the now empty “framework” implements without providing actual services to the American People.  Herein lies the reason the Democrats are so anxious to pass the Reid plan: it increases taxes, but doesn’t require Government to actually do much of anything.

But don’t take my word for it,  Senator Tom Coburn (R. Oklahoma) a practicing physician in the U.S. Senate had much to say about the Reid Plan in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal:

For instance, the Reid bill (in sections 3403 and 2021) explicitly empowers Medicare to deny treatment based on cost. An Independent Medicare Advisory Board created by the bill—composed of permanent, unelected and, therefore, unaccountable members—will greatly expand the rationing practices that already occur in the program.

That’s right, you and I will pay increased taxes to the Federal Government only to have then deny treatment based on cost.  Isn’t this the same complaint the Democrats and Obama are using to bully the Insurance companies?  “You betcha.”

Section 6301 of the Reid bill creates new comparative effectiveness research (CER) programs. CER panels have been used as rationing commissions in other countries such as the U.K., where 15,000 cancer patients die prematurely every year according to the National Cancer Intelligence Network. CER panels here could effectively dictate coverage options and ration care for plans that participate in the state insurance exchanges created by the bill.

Death panels anyone?  Sarah Palin (love her or hate her) had it exactly right, and the proof is above citing the exact section of the Reid plan which implements them. 

Additionally, the Reid bill depends on the recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force in no fewer than 14 places. This task force was responsible for advising women under 50 to not undergo annual mammograms. The administration claims the task force recommendations do not carry the force of law, but the Reid bill itself contradicts them in section 2713. The bill explicitly states, on page 17, that health insurance plans "shall provide coverage for" services approved by the task force. This chilling provision represents the government stepping between doctors and patients. When the government asserts the power to provide care, it also asserts the power to deny care.

Rationed health care, which put the Government in between a Doctor and Patient relationship, dictating what care can – and cannot – be given based on Government “task forces.”  If you’re a woman under age 50 and develop breast cancer, your chances of dying because of being denied early detection just went up exponentially thanks to the Reid plan, backed by Barack Hussein Obama – who himself said that the Government would never get between a patient and doctor.

The results of Government run, rationed health care are already evident here in the U.S:

In Maryland, 17,000 Medicaid patients are currently on a waiting list for medical services, and as many as 250 may have died while awaiting care, according to state auditors. Kansas, the home state of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, faces a Medicaid backlog of more than 15,000 applicants.

If you’re elderly, have a family history of breast (or other types of) cancer, or have a pre-existing condition – it was nice knowing you.  Government run health care is going to ration you out of existence.

Obama Violates Law Moving Terrorists To Illinois

Will Republican's Have The Guts To Call For Impeachment?

During the Bush Administration, Congress enacted a law which barred enemy combatants (terrorists) from being transferred to U.S. soil except if they were to be prosecuted.

Today, the Obama administration announced that Gitmo detainees are to be transferred to the Thomson Correctional Center, located 150 miles west of Chicago.  No trials are planned.

Is Obama violating the law, and is this an impeachable offense?

Obama Administration officials  admit that the current law allows for bringing in Gitmo inmates for putting them on trial however a change in the current law would be required for transferring terrorists to Thomson Correctional Center for any purpose other than prosecution.

This is a clear admission that the Obama administration is violating U.S. Law, and that is an impeachable offense under Article II, Section 3 of the United States Constitution which requires the President of the United States to take care that all laws are faithfully executed.

Where is the outrage in the media and the halls of Congress?  Our media is so corrupted that they no longer do their jobs and report the facts.  The Republican Party is so afraid of the "racist" label that they've ceded nearly every part of the Constitution to be corrupted by the Idiot in Chief.

Hey Republican Party: Why don't you grow a pair and call for Obama's IMPEACHMENT for illegally transferring terrorists to American soil, in violation of the laws of the United States of America, and the will of the American People as expressed by Congress on October 1st, 2009 when the House of Representatives voted OVERWHELMINGLY to not allow the transfer of dangerous TERRORISTS from Gitmo to American soil?

Another Historical First for Obama

The Most Unpopular President in History

At the end of his two terms in office, President George W. Bush maintained a 31% “strong approval rating” amongst the American people.  Historically low by most standards, and destined to become one of the most un-popular Presidents in this history of the country if we were to believe the lamestream media.

Along comes Barack Hussein Obama, who today hit a 23% “strong approval” rating today, 11 months in office.

By far, the most un-popular President at this point in his first term, amongst all Presidents in the history of the country.  Yes, that includes Jimmy Carter.

The Democrat controlled Congress is even worse with a 17% approval rating.  Trouble is in store for Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to be sure.

In Nevada, most voters oppose the health care plan currently under debate in Congress, and is one reason Harry Reid is trailing political newcomer Danny Tarkanian in the race for the Senate Seat Reid currently holds.

Here in Illinois, the race for Barack Hussein Obama’s old seat (currently sold to, and held by Roland Burris) is so fragmented on the Democrat side, fraught by scandal within the Democrat party that the seat once held by Peter Fitzgerald (R) may once again turn Republican.

Across the board, Democrats running for re-election in the Senate are in trouble as Independents flock away from the Democrat Party in search of some fiscal sensibility. 

It should be clear to most right-thinking people why the Democrats are in so much trouble in the upcoming mid-term elections, but the three  most cited reasons are:

  1. Economy.  Obama’s spending of $787 BILLION taxpayer dollars has failed to stimulate the economy and produce jobs.
  2. Health Care Reform.  Overwhelmingly by a 56% to 60% margin, American’s want the Federal Government to keep their dirty, filthy, corrupt hands off our health care.
  3. Government Spending.  Obama and the Democrats quintupled the Federal Deficit for 2009 up to nearly $2 TRILLION dollars, and recently they’ve increased the Debt Ceiling by another $1.8 TRILLION dollars.  Never before in the history of this Country has a President incurred nearly $4 TRILLION dollars in debt – his first year in office.

Democrats ignore these facts at their own peril, however I also have a word to the wise for the Republican Party: If you keep trying to be “Democrat lite” by proposing amendments to the Democrats health care plan, you’ll suffer the same fate in 2010 that they will. 

Republican’s must stop this wasteful government spending, stop the seizure of the nation’s health care system, and return fiscal sanity to Washington DC if they want Conservative’s votes next November.

War On The Wealthy

Obama’s IRS Hires Hundreds For New “Wealth Tax” Unit

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A new Internal Revenue Service unit set up to catch rich tax cheats hiding their wealth in complex business entities is rapidly taking shape with the hiring of hundreds of employees.

The IRS high wealth unit, part of a broader effort to combat international tax evasion, is focusing on "the entire web of business entities controlled by a high wealth individual," IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman told a tax conference this week.

Another IRS official told Reuters "hundreds" of people have already been hired to staff the new unit, including some from within the agency.

"We have drawn top talent within the IRS that have expertise involving wealthy individuals as well as examination of their related entities," said Mae Lew, an IRS special counsel.

The high-wealth unit is focusing on trusts, real estate investments, privately held companies and other business entities controlled by rich individuals.

While use of sophisticated legal structures can be legal, in other instances they "mask aggressive tax strategies," Shulman said.

Tax authorities in Japan, Germany and the UK have also created similar units.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday approved a $387 million boost for the IRS for the fiscal year that started October 1, in part to fund the high-wealth unit. The Senate is expected to vote on the measure on Sunday.

Editor: Now being wealthy is considered a crime.  America is lost.

Democrats To GOP: Keep Out, Shut Up

Telling The Truth Is “Scaring” The American People

Investors Business Daily

The president has called on Republicans to "stop trying to frighten the American people." But telling the truth about the never-ending expansion of government is not scaremongering.

First, Democrats in Congress kept their colleagues on the opposite side of the aisle from a place at the table on health reform because Republicans "aren't offering a plan." The truth is that they aren't offering a big government plan, and Democratic leaders are blind to solutions that focus on the private sector.

Now, adding insult to injury, the president told Republicans during a White House meeting Wednesday with leaders of both parties to quit scaring the public, as recounted to reporters by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Let's see if we've got this right. Republicans are allowed to take part in decisions like the most sweeping changes in health care law in history, and rescuing the economy from the worst downturn since the Great Depression — but only if their ideas mirror liberals' trillion-dollar statist wish list.

And if they refuse to get on board the Democrats' juggernaut, they'd better not just get out of the way of it; they also don't have any business telling the American people about its size or its speed, or the havoc it will wreak on its journey.

As House Minority Leader John Boehner said, there's pretty much a hiring freeze going on in the country as businesses wait to see how bad Congress' dictates will be on the health insurance they provide to their workers. "And the president wants to blame us for informing the American people about what's happening here and how it will affect them."

As he added, "it's the policies that they're promoting here in Washington" that are the Democrats' problem, not Republican rhetoric.

Think about it. How often have Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell been accused of throwing their overpowering charisma around? Public support for Congress' multitrillion-dollar health care revolution isn't in the dumpster — only 41% according to IBD/TIPP; just 35% according to Gallup — because of anybody being charmed or excited by supposed GOP demagoguery.

It's because Americans increasingly know they're about to lose, for all its flaws, one hell of a great health insurance system. They're about to start paying thousands of dollars more a year in premiums in exchange for less consumer choice and reduced quality of care.

The 2,000-plus pages of new rules, regulations and federal micromanagement it will take to establish the new system in law will, in fact, explode costs to such an extent that not too far in the future these same Democrats will be screaming that to save health care we must enact Euro-style single-payer.

The White House, Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are understandably frustrated by the historic drop in the president's approval ratings, and in the concurrent unpopularity of their designs to transform medicine in this country. But they have no business insisting that the other side shut up.

At such a momentous juncture in history, the other side would be guilty of a dereliction of duty if it clammed up. As it is, Republicans are doing too much playing along, misguidedly offering amendments on everything from mammograms to what size business should constitute a "large employer."

The amendments' purpose may be to "delay, stall, slow down," as Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele urged in a strategy memo. But as Steele also wrote, the real objective should be to "ultimately stop" the Democrats' big-government proposal.

The advantage of offering amendment after amendment is that it can expose various harmful facets of the Democrats' health bill as each amendment is debated and covered by the press. But as Republican Sen. James Inhofe told the Hill newspaper this week: "I would have preferred, and the leadership decided otherwise, to handle it in the way of not making (the bill) any better by introducing amendments that might make it better."

One thing is clear: The way the public has revolted during 2009 against the domestic agenda of a president it only recently elected demonstrates the power of information in the American political process. The information providers are not about to shut up.

Mugged By Reality

Obama’s Nobel Speech Acknowledges Evil Exists

Sometimes a President just gets mugged by the reality of a situation, as was the case with Barack Hussein Obama yesterday in Norway.

In his speech before the Nobel Committee in which he accepted an award that he did not earn, does not have the body of work for, and will never accomplish what those who were nominated with him have, Obama was forced by reality to admit that evil does exist in this world, and that sometimes war is necessary to restore peace.

For a moment or two I thought I was listening to the wisdom of George W. Bush in front of the United Nations, as he justified the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as Obama dragged kicking and screaming by the reality of history, had to acknowledge America’s role in keeping the peace in this world, and the unlevel burden we bear in the fight against terror.

As critical as I am of Barack Hussein Obama, today I must give him credit for finally telling the truth about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, that evil does in fact exist in this world, and that America as the greatest nation on this planet – still – bears the uneven burden of fighting it on behalf of all nations.

Congratulations Obama, you got one right.  Mark the day on your calendar, it will likely be a long time before you do so again.

When Polls Collide

Two Recent Polls Show Public Increasingly Opposed To Obama, Favor Former President Bush

Gallup, CNN, Rasmussen and others all have Barack Hussein Obama’s approval rating hovering between 44% and 46%.

44% of voters say they’d rather have Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush according to an article on Politico today.

What does this mean for the 2010 elections?  It means Democrats best not tie their wagons to Obama, more stimulus spending, or health care if they know what’s good for them.  It also means that Obama can no longer blame Bush for the state of the economy, the debt, deficit and the sorry state of international affairs with every turd-world despot spitting and laughing in our faces.

Obama’s year long plummet from 74% approval post inauguration to 44% (with a scant 27% “strong approval”) is the worst among any President in the history of this country.

It’s official: Jimmy Carter is no longer the worst President in the history of the country.

We, the citizens of this country are in desperate need of liberation from this left-wing marxist occupying the White House.

The Public Option Is Dead? Think Again.

More Democrat "Sleight Of Hand"

A Public Option by any other name, is still a Public Option.

What do you call a private health insurance "pool" operating as a "not for profit" with direct oversight by the Federal Government?

You betcha, it's still a PUBLIC OPTION, especially when it is funded by taxes on the health care benefits that those of us who are working will have to pay.

Don't let the Democrats lull you into a false sense of security that the 'public option' is dead.  It's alive and well, it's just been re-branded - something which the Democrats have gotten quite good at.

Obama's EPA: CO2 Is A Dangerous Pollutant

Biggest Power Grab in EPA History Will Further Kill U.S. Economy

The Obama Administration's Environmental Protection Agency is set to declare CO2 a "dangerous pollutant" today which will give the agency broad, sweeping powers in regulating the "gas" as a harmful pollutant.

In declaring CO2 a "dangerous pollutant" the EPA will claim power to regulate anything and everything that emits CO2, a naturally occurring gas that is widely and mistakenly blamed for "global warming."

Powers of the EPA will exceed that of the Interstate Commerce Commission and the implications to businesses of all sizes are stunning.  For example, oil refineries in the United States would simply shut down and import gasoline from overseas where they are out of reach of the EPA and emission constraints.  If gasoline prices aren't high enough now, wait until it's imported from overseas. 

Utility companies will be "granted" CO2 permits, but would pay hefty fines if they exceed their "allotment."  Those fines would ultimately passed along to consumers in the form of higher energy costs.

As with everything, "follow the money" I always say.  So what is the EPA's declaration really about?  Money and power.  At the heart of this fight are a Government that is looking for any and every way to increase its "revenue" by finding new sources of taxes, and a transfer of wealth to third-world developing countries who allegedly "bear the brunt" of global warming by being kept down by the U.N. and industrialized nations by not being "allowed" to produce greenhouse gases.  In Copenhagen, there is expected to be much debate how much the West, or industrialized countries will pay developing nations to restrict their CO2 emissions. 

"There is no agreement without money," says Rosário Bento Pais, a top climate negotiator for the European Commission, the European Union's executive arm. "That is clear."

Follow the money.

GDP vs. National Debt – The Raw Truth

Our Economy Is On A Road To Nowhere

Credit: Natural Born Conservative Blog

I read an analysis early this morning which made the claim that our GDP had to grow at a minimum of 3.5% a year over the next 10 years just to equal the National Debt.  By 2019, the Debt would be equivalent to a year’s GDP.

At first the claim sounded suspicious, but after reading the analysis, checking the sources (and doing the math myself) it appears that the claims made by Larry Walker Jr. on his blog “Natural Born Conservative” are 100% correct.

Given our economy has just undergone a major contraction in which 8.5 million jobs have been lost and is currently declining at a rate of about 1.25% a year, the likelihood that National Debt as a percentage of GDP will actually exceed 100% of GDP.

What does this mean?  It means that to service the interest on our debt alone, taxes will have to skyrocket. (I’m still working on that calculation myself based on the “average” income of the top 50% and lower 50% of all Americans.)


GDP must grow from $14,198.5 to $19,224.3 billion in order to equal the National Debt by 2019. In other words, GDP must increase by $5,025.8 over the ten year period. This represents an increase of 35.4% for the period. That means that GDP must grow at a rate of 3.54% per year in order to equal our National Debt by 2019.

Small Business Owner Confidence Plunges

Threats of Higher Taxes, Government Intervention, Wealth Confiscation Dim View of Economy

Credit: Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis

Although the Fed and most economic forecasters are all looking ahead to the recovery, small business owners do not see convinced.

Economic confidence among America's small business owners plummeted in November, as more owners cited serious concerns about cash flow and saw economic conditions for their own businesses getting worse.

  • 52 percent of owners say they have experienced cash flow issues in the past 90 days, up from 44 percent in October. ...
  • 53 percent of small business owners see conditions getting worse in the next six months, up from 43 percent in October...
  • 62 percent of small business owners rate the economy as poor, an increase from 55 percent in October...
  • 53 percent of small business owners think the overall economy is getting worse.

A majority of small business owners think the economy is getting worse, not better. And if small businesses are not confident, then they are not hiring.

Obama Blames Small Business For Lack of Jobs

Summit Exposes Lack of Business, Economics Experience

Barack Hussein Obama has never held a job in the private sector, so is it any wonder that yesterday Obama blamed small business owners for “protecting their profits” as one of the primary reasons the unemployment rate is so high?obamaclown

This gem was followed by yet another “brilliant” statement that the Government "”cannot spend its way out of recession.”

Almost $2,000,000,000,000 dollars later, reality sets in that the Government doesn’t create jobs, business’ do.  We all know that Small Businesses are the economic engine of this country, yet Obama continues to “bash and tax” them into oblivion whilst simultaneously blaming them for lack of job creation.

As someone who’s started two small businesses, I can speak authoritatively on this issue in saying “of course they protect their profits, for without those profits small business would not be able to employ anyone in the first place, much less be the economic engine of this country.”  Profits drive growth which drives economic expansion and job creation.  It really is that simple, Obama must’ve been all ‘wee-wee’d up” during Economics 101.

The fact is also that laying off employees is typically the last thing most companies want to do.  The cost of recruiting, interviewing, hiring, training new employees and making them productive within a company are so exorbitant they often take two years or more to recover. 

So are small businesses reluctant to hire in this economic climate?  You bet they are, and for good reason: We’ve had two years worth of Obama bashing small businesses (one year as a “Candidate”) threatening to increase their taxes and “spread the wealth around.”

It doesn’t take an economic genius to know that this bozo’s economic policies are ruining this country, driving us further and further into debt and eventually the bills are going to come due via higher inflation and a further erosion of the dollar’s purchasing power.

Ronald Wilson Reagan had it exactly right when he said during his first inaugural address: “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
True then, true now.

Why Is Janet Napolitano Warning Al-Qaeda in America?

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned that al-Qaida followers are inside the U.S. and pose the threat of terrorist attacks on Americans.
“The fact is that home-based terrorism is here,” she said in an address to the American-Israel Friendship League in New York on Wednesday night.
I wondered why this “warning” had been issued, then I read several stories about a new muslim terrorist hijacking dry-run that occurred on November 27th on AirTran Flight 297 between Houston and Atlanta that at first sounded very suspicioius, but has since been confirmed by several people who were on the flight, one an employee of NASA named Tedd Petruna.

So my question here is, why is Janet Napolitano “warning” Al-Qaeda in America and not finding and killing the bastards instead?  Where is our national security?  Why are muslims even allowed in America at this point?

Obama’s dithering and mixed signals in winning the war on terror no doubt means we’re going to fighting Al-Qaeda here on our own soil soon vis a vis more 9-11 style attacks. Clearly this “President” doesn’t want to win and our enemies know it.

“Warning” them?  Let’s find ‘em, kill ‘em, wrap their dead bodies in pig skin and drop them off via airmail back home where they belong.

This political correctness bullshit is going to get us all killed.

When Left-Wing Marxists Turn On Each Other

Obama’s Good Friend William Ayers Turns On Him

I’m always heartened when left-wing marxists who want to destroy America turn on each other.
Video is from Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago.  Watch as William Ayers turns on his good friend Barack Hussein Obama over the “troop surge” in Afghanistan.

I wonder if Ayers is going to hold fundraisers for Obama in 2012 after this.  Ayers by the way was the first prominent left-wing liberal marxist in Chicago to host a fundraiser for Obama when he began his U.S. Senate run in 2006. 

Ayers is also widely suspected as being the shadow writer of Obama’s “Dreams of my Father” due to the hundreds of similarities between Obama’s and Ayers’ “writing styles.”

It’s always fun to watch when the left-wing marxist wingnuts turn on each other isn’t it?

Obama best have the Secret Service check his mail for letter bombs after this.

Obama’s “Jobs Summit”

Ignores Chamber of Commerce, SBA But Includes Berkley Egg-Heads That Have Never Worked in Private Sector

Today “dear leader” is having A “jobs summit” with his leftist wingnut friends at Google, while leaving out the Chamber of Commerce, which represents small businesses across America.

You remember small businesses, those are the companies that are the jobs creation engines in this country.

And they’re being completely ignored by a “President” that doesn’t4rde04 have a clue about how to run an economy, as evidenced by an “economic stimulus package” that’s spent $787 billion dollars and has yet to create one single job.   Unless of course you count the ones that were reported in Congressional districts that don’t exist. 

Sometimes you can’t make this stuff up it’s so far out in left field that it defies logic and reason, so hang on folks, the worst is yet to come!

NoBamanation to the rescue! Here’s our plan for dear leader and his leftist wing nuts to immediately boost the economy:

1. Cut taxes. Across the board by no less than 15%.  This includes those making more than $250k a year and those living at ‘poverty level.’  Everyone gets a tax cut, no exceptions.  The great thing about this one is, it works every time it’s been tried.

2. Cut Capital Gains taxes by a minimum of 15% over the Bush tax cuts.  That’s right, not only leave the Bush tax cuts in place, increase them by 15% to spur re-investment and stop hoarding of cash in this country.  This one works every time too.

3. Codify into law a 3 year depreciation cycle for all business investment into Capital production.  This will spur much needed business investment and boost the economy by allowing companies operating in America to reduce equipment depreciation cycles from 5-7 years down to 3.

4. Increase the Research & Development deductions for all companies to spur innovation.  50% of all R&D efforts should be tax-deductible to increase innovation and maximize capital investment dollars, making America the number one destination for all new start-up companies.

5. Immediately STOP all so-called “stimulus spending.”  There is absolutely no transparency into how the American People’s money is being spent.  If this were the Bush Administration, the lamestream media would’ve been screaming bloody murder months ago.  The fact is, the Government that spends less, spends best.  These morons couldn’t manage “Cash for Clunkers” properly, putting them in charge of the economy?  Oh hell no.

6. Stop all this nonsense about socializing our healthcare.  The thought of the Government taking another $2 TRILLION dollars out of our economy is but another factor that has every man, woman, child and business deathly afraid of spending a single dollar, knowing full well the Government is going to tax the hell out of us for its ineptness and inefficiency in running healthcare.

7. Permanently eliminate the Death Tax.  This is the tax that the government imposes on every estate worth more than $2.5 million dollars by seizing 45% of it just because they can.  This re-distribution of wealth doesn’t help the economy.  Never has, never will.  Those who earned their money have the God given right to keep and do with it what they will, including bequeathing it to their children or charities – as they see fit.

8. Last but certainly not least, the Chamber of Commerce and Small Business Association absolutely positively must included in any discussions on how to spur economic growth.  If this country is to get back on the right track, the people who know how to create jobs must be at the table, not a bunch of left-wing Berkley egg-heads that have never worked in the private sector in their lives.

That’s my plan, simple, easy, and chock full of the common sense that most right-thinking Americans already know, as evidenced by a recent Rasmussen poll which shows that 71% of American’s believe that the right way to fix the economy is to cut taxes.

Think I’ve missed something?  Let’s hear from you, the comments section is always open.


West Point Cadet Reads “Kill Bin Laden” During Obama’s Speech

Some Slept, Some Made Good Use Of Time

Ok, we know it was long, boring, and full of the SOS that we’re used to in Obama’s speeches.

Without getting into the analysis of how Obama surrendered to the Terrorists during his speech the other night, at least one West Point Cadet had the right idea:

potd dec 3So while some slept, some made good use of their time.  Still others displayed their displeasure in other ways (hint: look to the right of the Cadet reading.)

Seems NO ONE was happy with Obama’s speech at West Point, which seems to be an ever growing trend btw.

I’m just sayin’.

Obama Surrenders Afghanistan

Announces Troop Surge, Withdrawal, Welcomes Taliban To The Table In Same Speech

One can only describe Obama’s speech at West Point yesterday as a stunning failure. 

As the television camera’s panned back and forth across the Cadets at West Point it was obvious that not only were they not impressed by the cheese eating surrender monkey in chief, they clearly recognized that this “President” was surrendering to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda terrorist organizations by announcing a withdrawal from Afghanistan in mid 2011.  It didn’t matter that the West Point Cadets were instructed by the West Point leadership to “respond enthusiastically” to Obama’s speech, they recognized surrender when they saw it and reacted accordingly.

Forget the fact that Obama announced a troop “surge” of 30,000 troops over 6 months (averaging 5,000 a month) up to June of 2010, completing the “build up” one year before his announced withdrawal starting in June of 2011, just in time for Obama to begin his campaign for re-election.  Great, let’s march our best and brightest into enemy territory only to have them march right back out a year later, and lesser in numbers.

The announcement of the ‘surge’ was completely overshadowed by Obama’s proclamation that he would welcome the Taliban to the negotiating table as long as they ‘rejected violence.’  These are the same Taliban that gave Osama Bin Laden safe haven before and after the 9-11-01 attacks on this country in which more than 3,000 people were brutally murdered in the largest terrorist attack not just on American soil, but in the history of Bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist organization.

This “President” wants to give the Taliban a place at the table in Afghanistan’s government?  Surrender by any other name is still Surrender and you just know that somewhere that terrorist enabling Jimmy Carter is smiling in approval.

Angry At The Federal Government? You're In Good Company

71% Angry, Up 5 Percentage Points Since September

Rasmussen had an interesting poll yesterday which showed 71% of all American's are "angry" at their Government, saying it's moving in the wrong direction.  46% are "very angry" that the government is moving in the wrong direction while 27% aren't angry at all about "government policies."

So why are the overwhelming majority of so mad?

Let's start with the basics.  10.2% unemployment on average in this country and rising.  Some parts of the country are over 11% and 12%.  Parts of Michigan exceed 20%.  Real Unemployment, which counts those that have exhausted benefits, fallen off the unemployment rolls, or are under-employed in part-time positions averages 17.5%.  That's near Depression Era levels, and the highest it's been since the malaise days and mixery index of Jimmy Carter.

Out of control government spending.  The Obama Administration pissed away $1.5 TRILLION dollars in unaccounted for, wasteful "stimulus" spending that didn't produce a single job, and Congressional earmarks for their own favorite pet projects on top of that.

Government bailouts of the banks, automobile industries which cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars ON TOP OF the $1.5 TRILLION above.

Government attempting to seize our Health Care system, ration care, and implement death panels, putting Grrandma and Grandpa at risk by cutting Medicare to the tune of $500,000,000 over the next ten years.

Cap & Trade, which will further kill the economy.

Health Care Taxes, and prison for those who don't buy health care.

Democrats renewing the 'promise' to naturalize nearly 20,000,000 illegal aliens in this country.

A world spinning out of control with a President embracing every third-world tyrant from Ahmedinejad in Iran to Hugo Chavez in Venezuela while simultaneously pissing off the one Democracy in the middle east, Israel.

Frittering away America's best and brightest in Iraq and Afghanistan, dithering on increasing troop counts while our troops die in Afghanistan needlessly.

A nuclear Iran, nuclear North Korea, fully backed by Russia and China respectively.

And finally, bringing the terrorists who helped plan and execute the largest attack ever on American soil to New York City to face trial in a criminal court, rather than subjecting them to military justice as the enemy combatants they are.  Giving American's civil rights to terrorists goes against every Constitutional principle most right thinking American's hold dear.

Sure we're mad as hell, and it's this worthless piece of crap President that's pissing us all off.  That's the hidden message you won't see in these "polls."  You will however see the building rage in this country demonstrated in the ballot box in November 2010.

Global Warming: A Mann Made Hoax

The Facts About Global Warming

As things stand today, we now know that two "climatologists" are at the heart of the Global "Warming" fiasco of which Al Gore has financially benefitted from the last 10 years with his "carbon credit" scheme.

First there is Michael Mann, the Associate Professor at Pennsylvania State University in the Department of Meteorology adn Earth and Environmental Systems Institute, also the Director of the University's Inter-Departmental Earth System Science Center.

Second is Britain's leading climate "scientist" Phil Jones who along with Mann published more than 100 "peer reviewed articles" on global warming. 

As I've gone through the emails over the last week, there are two names that are repeatedly mentioned in how "scientists" are to correct their own data, thus showing the "hockey stick effect" which "proves global warming: Mann and Jones. 

We now know that global warming is a Mann made hoax, perpetrated on Governments for continued research funding (read that: tax payer dollars) and as a way to "control" the population of the planet. 

Perhaps "hoax" isn't the right word, as it implies "humor" or "fun" and there is no fun to be had in adopting the "recommendations" that the global warming alarmists want to impose on the rest of us.

"Crime against all humanity" is a better term for what Mann and Jones have tried to pull off.  I certainly like that better.  So why has the liberal lamestream media continued to ignore a story that's almost a week old on the 'net?  Facts are pesky things, and this whole climate-gate stuff is pretty difficult to understand, much like Watergate was during the Nixon Administration, so allow me to simplify it:

It's not the crime, it's the cover-up.

In deliberately using false data, and covering their tracks with 'peer reviews', refusal to respond to Freedom of Information Acts, destroying emails and other damn'ing data, and ostracising those who disagreed with their "scientific" approach, Mann and Jones have managed to criminally affect national and global policies that impact all nations economies to the cost of trillions of dollars in reduced wages, productivity and revenues to governments.

Obama Environmental Czar John Holdren Implicated In Scandal

Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the Mann made global warming hoax is Obama Environmental Czar John Holdren's role in it all as his name appears in several emails stating that those who disagreed with 'global warming' would be made into 'raw entertainment' for the rest of the scientific community.

Holdren is well known for his totalitarian views on forced abortions and mass sterilization to "save the planet."   Most recently, Holdren advocated for a transnational "Planetary Regime" that would take control of the global economy, dictating the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force.

Holdren's other claims in the past have included that the world is running out of oil in his 1971 Sierra Club book, Energy: A Crisis in Power, Holdren declared that "it is fair to conclude that under almost any assumptions, the supplies of crude petroleum and natural gas are severely limited. The bulk of energy likely to flow from these sources may have been tapped within the lifetime of many of the present population."  In addition to his early formed radical views on forced abortions and sterilization, he also advocated for centralized, global economic planning to "minimize impacts to the planet" through "The Limits to Growth" club, of which he was a founding member. 

You might think that Holdren's views would be impossible to impose but that would be incorrect as this has been the goal of global warming alarmists all along: change the way people live, produce and procreate.

Where's Glenn Beck on this, by the way?  I'd have thought he'd be railing against Holdren on TV by now. 

What Will Obama Do in Copenhagen?

Now that "global warming" has been proven to be a fraud perpetrated on all humanity, what type of "bowing" will Obama do for the rest of the world in Copenhagen? 

According to the Los Angeles Tiems Greenspace blog:

The White House will also announce today that the United States will commit, in the talks, to reduce its emissions of the heat-trapping gases scientists blame for global warming "in the range of" 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, the official said. That's the target set out in the climate bill the House passed in June.

White House officials said the decision to attend came after productive climate discussions between Obama and the heads of China and India, two developing nations whose participation is seen as critical to any successful effort to avert catastrophic climate change."
The Obama Administration is either behind the times or is deliberately ignoring the breaking climate-gate fraud as they attempt to further destroy the American Economy by implementing more taxes and expanding the size of the Federal Government in the largets power grab by the Fed's in the country's history.

Is Obama dumb enough to let climate-gate damage him?  I suspect he is, the power hungry arrogant bastard that he is.

Five Aussie MP's Resign Over Carbon Tax

The ETS is Australia’s version of America’s proposed Cap and Trade and the EU’s various carbon reduction schemes: a way of taxing business on its CO2 output.

Though the ETS squeaked narrowly through Australia’s House of Representatives, its Senate is proving more problematic – thanks not least to the widespread disgust by the many Senators who have read Professor Plimer’s book Heaven And Earth at the dishonesty and corruption of the Global Warming industry. If the Senate keeps rejecting the scheme, then the Australian government will be forced to dissolve.

Editor: If only the U.S. Congress had such integrity.
