I write this letter as a patriot, a taxpayer, a lifelong resident and as concerned citizen of what I consider to be the greatest nation ever known to man, the United States of America.
I am Caucasian, so let’s get the racial aspect out of the way to start with. This letter has nothing to do with your race. I lived through the cruelty of Jim Crow and segregation and learned early on in my life that the color of my skin does not make me better or worse than any other man.
We all remember Martin Luther King, Jr.’s statement about judging people, not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character, and I believe that with all my heart.
I believe that America is an exceptional country. We have been liberator, benefactor and leader of the free world for centuries. America is an example of what can be achieved by free people living under the free enterprise system.
We have led the world in technology, industry, science and medicine for a long time.
Our capitalist system guarantees that those who explore new worlds and bring us new products and better techniques are amply rewarded for their efforts, and this is as it should be.
A person who is the first one to get there and the last one to leave, who burns the midnight oil and never gives up until they realize their goals, are a boon to humankind. They’re the ones who discover new cures, start new industries and create jobs.
These people deserve to be rewarded for their hard work and for the products and services they bring to make life better for all mankind.
Mr. President, it is my personal opinion that you want to take the well-earned rewards of these people and give it to those who have done nothing to deserve them.
It’s really redistribution of wealth, and it’s nothing new. It’s been tried many places before and it has miserably failed in every one of them.
It’s called socialism.
Am I calling you a socialist? Yes, I am. I firmly believe that you are a socialist and a globalist, and that you think America should have a comeuppance and have our playing field leveled to match those of other countries not as industrious or as innovative as we are.
Mr. President, how can you support the building of a mosque in the very same area where Islamic radicals murdered so many Americans?
Just who’s side are you on?
Am I accusing you of being a Muslim? No I’m not, but the jury is still out a little bit on that subject in my mind, because many times your sympathies seem to lean in that direction. You need to watch who you bow to Mr. President.
You have betrayed a whole generation of African-Americans who voted for you because they really believed all that junk about “hope and change,” they really thought you were going to do something great and the only thing you’ve done is to make their jobs disappear and their health insurance go up.
You and your party have corrupted duly elected officials in an effort to get your legislative agenda passed. Remember the “Louisiana Purchase” and the “Cornhusker Kickback,” and that’s just a couple we know about, but you bought off a bunch of congressmen and senators, knowing that you were going against the will of the majority of Americans, because you think that you and your arrogant friends know more about what’s good for America than the citizens your disastrous actions effect.
Am I accusing you of being an elitist? You bet.
I don’t believe you take the Islamic threat to America nearly as seriously as you should. You use semantics like “Overseas Contingency Operation” and “Man Caused Disasters” to soften your rhetoric toward people who would like nothing better than decapitate the entire population of America.
And Mr. President, if you’d really like to know the kind of warriors who are fighting the “Overseas Contingency Operation,” and you would like to really know about what kind of enemies they’re fighting, you should read a book called Lone Survivor by a brave, young Navy Seal named Marcus Lutrell who went to hell and back for his country, and is still a dedicated patriot. I think you’d find it enlightening, Mr. President and after you finish it would you pass it on to Janet Napolitano? And by the way, tell her that my invitation to take her to Iraq and show her some “Man Caused Disasters” is still open.
Am I calling you naïve? Absolutely.
You seem to think that America has an endless supply of tax dollars for you to waste and give away, and the debt you’ve piled up could well bankrupt the greatest nation on earth.
Am I calling you a failure, Mr. President?
With all due respect that’s exactly what I’m doing.

A PLEDGE TO AMERICA
America is more than a country.
America is an idea – an idea that free people can govern themselves, that government’s powers are derived from the consent of the governed, that each of us is endowed by their Creator with the unalienable rights to life,liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. America is the belief that any man or woman can – given economic,political, and religious liberty – advance themselves, their families, and the common good.
America is an inspiration to those who yearn to be free and have the ability and the dignity to determine their own destiny.
Whenever the agenda of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to institute a new governing agenda and set a different course.
These first principles were proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, enshrined in the Constitution, and have endured through hard sacrifice and commitment by generations of Americans.
In a self-governing society, the only bulwark against the power of the state is the consent of the governed, and regarding the policies of the current government, the governed do not consent.
An unchecked executive, a compliant legislature, and an overreaching judiciary have combined to thwart the will of the people and overturn their votes and their values, striking down long-standing laws and institutions and scorning the deepest beliefs of the American people.
An arrogant and out-of-touch government of self-appointed elites makes decisions, issues mandates, and enacts laws without accepting or requesting the input of the many.
Rising joblessness, crushing debt, and a polarizing political environment are fraying the bonds among our people and blurring our sense of national purpose.
Like free peoples of the past, our citizens refuse to accommodate a government that believes it can replace the will of the people with its own. The American people are speaking out, demanding that we realign our country’s compass with its founding principles and apply those principles to solve our common problems for the common good.
The need for urgent action to repair our economy and reclaim our government for the people cannot be overstated.
With this document, we pledge to dedicate ourselves to the task of reconnecting our highest aspirations to the permanent truths of our founding by keeping faith with the values our nation was founded on, the principles we stand for, and the priorities of our people. This is our Pledge to America.
We pledge to honor the Constitution as constructed by its framers and honor the original intent of those precepts that have been consistently ignored – particularly the Tenth Amendment, which grants that all powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
We pledge to advance policies that promote greater liberty, wider opportunity, a robust defense, and national economic prosperity.
We pledge to honor families, traditional marriage, life, and the private and faith-based organizations that form the core of our American values.

Obama is called to task by one of his early supporters:
"I'm one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I'm exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for."
Funny thing happens on the way to hot dogs n beans - when you take away from the few to distribute to the many - soon everyone has equal portions of poverty and there is no one left anywhere to provide the means to potato salad on the menu except thru servitude of ComradeKarl in Gov we must
Am still wondering when Mathews or Pelosi will come forward to say this lady is crazy-extremist-dangerous -racist or a secret Constitutional terrorist...and we know they won't because she isn't. Just as the other millions of American citizens who gather to express their concerns are not.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Obama Omitted the very words that make us unique- words that make us strong- words that are written to assure that MAN can not remake those rights into his own image.
The ommission had to be by design and forethought -"that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are-" was left out of the speech.
Look to the last 18 months of 'change' and you do not have to wonder why Obama would leave out WHO he actually believes gives us our 'rights' and to the one world godless Marxists he assigns to take them away.

Obamacare Czar Sebelius Threatens Insurance Companies who are raising premiums due to the Health care Scam passed by Congress.
The Sebelius letter to Insurance Companies warns them if they raise premiums or explain why the premiums are being raised then they would be locked OUT of future government controlled parsing out of the foretold 30 million new subscribers and their dollars.
Play to pay. Play or pay.
This heavy handed extortion is nothing new for the Obama thuggish crowd - do what we say or you will pay. Do not speak against us or you will regret it. Co-operate and be rewarded. Ask for information and we will deny you access. Dare use first amendment and we will find ways to deny your use of it.
Common sense tells you if the health care law imposes extra costs upon the insurance companies that they would pass the costs on to consumers. Of Course we all knew that but we were shouted down or ignored.
"Misinformation" is something Sebelius just won't tolerate...Ironic...The Obama crew could swipe 500 billion from seniors health coverage while saying it won't affect them at all.
BTW- in the 18 months that we have heard about the 500 billion that will - supposedly pay for nearly half of this national health care scheme and - come from Medicare fraud savings etc- HOW MUCH HAVE YOU RECOVERED?
If these Obama disinformation people continue to operate as they have in the past look soon for a "Turn in your Neighbor for HealthCare Lies Website" to be formed.
The Health care Insurance Industry and medical costs are out of line for sure but the Government socialist control of either is not the answer.
What can we expect next to come out of 1600 Red Square?

Paul A. Rahe
We have come a long way in the last twenty months. The President of the United States, his Chief of Staff, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Majority Leader in the United States Senate have done for the Republican Party what no Republican could have accomplished. Just as rigor mortis was about to set in, they brought the old corpse back to life. For their efforts on our behalf, we should be forever grateful.
It is easy to lose perspective. It is easy to forget the dire straits in which the Republicans found themselves in and for some time after November, 2008. On the first Tuesday of that month, they were soundly defeated. The Democrats controlled the Presidency and both houses of Congress. In time, when Al Franken was seated and Arlen Specter turned coat, the Democrats would attain El Dorado – a commanding majority in the Senate capable to bringing a filibuster to a screeching halt.
The Republicans initially thought that to get along they would have to go along. Had Nancy Pelosi thrown a little patronage their way when the so-called “stimulus” bill was being put together, had Barack Obama intervened to insist that she include earmarks for compliant Republicans in the House, a great many of them would have voted for the measure. It is to her that we owe their solidarity on the occasion of the vote. She is responsible for the fact that on that occasion they presented themselves to the world as a party of principle. If the Tea-Party Movement, which sprang up in the immediate aftermath of the bill’s passage, was not as resolutely hostile to the Republicans as it was to the Democrats, it was because Pelosi and her minions wanted vengeance, sought it, and got it.
Even when the Tea-Party Movement had emerged, the Republicans were not quick to realize what was in the offing. On 2 May 2009, some six months after the election, Jeb Bush emerged from a meeting with Mitt Romney and House Republican Whip Eric Cantor to announce that it was time for the Republicans to give up “nostalgia about the past” and to leave Ronald Reagan and all that he stood for behind. “You can’t beat something with nothing,” he observed, “and the other side has something. I don’t like it, but they have it, and we have to be respectful and mindful of that.”
Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, and Eric Cantor may have been slow to grasp what was going on, but it would be a mistake to assume that they are dopes. It was not until early August in that year that I was willing to admit to myself that a political realignment in the Republicans’ favor was a serious possibility; and, as I noted in a piece posted in the aftermath of the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association in early September, I was even then almost entirely alone. At that convention, I had attended a panel on Barack Obama’s first year as President at which not one of the distinguished students of American politics on the panel had in their prepared remarks even mentioned the Tea-Party Movement. And when I asked a question about it, I received a perfunctory answer. It was odd, my interlocutor remarked, that such a movement had emerged in the absence of institutional support. It was, I thought, very odd, very odd, indeed.
Now, thanks to Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid, the Republicans appear to be on the verge of an historic victory.
I would not be surprised in the slightest if they were to gain more than seventy seats in the House of Representatives and to retake the Senate as well. But, as I intimated in a recent post entitled John Boehner’s Testing Time, nothing is certain, not even now, and Jeb Bush was certainly right about one thing. You cannot beat something with nothing, and in recent years the Republicans have stood for next to nothing. If they are to effect a lasting political realignment — a possibility for which I have argued repeatedly in the last twelve months (first here in August 2009, then in posts linked here and archived here, here, and here) – they must give the American people reason to put their faith in them.
In an earlier post, entitled Patronage, Principles, and Political Parties, I explored the history of American political parties, their propensity to oscillate between being parties of patronage and parties of principle, and the manner in which the American constitution with its separation of powers both requires and subverts parties of principle. In John Boehner’s Testing Time, I drew on this earlier post and suggested that Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and their associates would be well-advised to draft a new Contract with American designed to nationalize the midterm elections and to transform the Republican Party – which has in recent years tended to be a party of patronage oriented towards the needs of particular, local constituencies – into a party of principle capable, at least for the time being, of genuinely governing these United States.
This end, I contended, can be achieved only if the Republicans appropriate for their own use a claim falsely but effectively advanced by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936 which – thanks to our current President, his Chief of Staff, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Majority Leader in the United States Senate — now rings all too true: that today the American republic is threatened by a conspiracy, that “a small group” of individuals, lead by Obama, Emanuel, Pelosi, and Reid, is intent on concentrating “into their own hands an almost complete control over other people’s property, other people’s money, other people’s labor — other people’s lives.” If they wish to effect a realignment, I argued, all that the Republicans have to do is to complete the task of unmasking begun by Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and Emanuel and make it clear that they really do intend to repeal Obamacare, to balance the federal budget without enacting permanent tax increases, to roll back the scope and size of the administrative state, and to restore within these United States limited, constitutional government.
To this end, they not only need to spell out in some detail what they intend to do; they need, as I argued in that earlier post, to justify their proposals in terms of constitutional principles. To grasp what this entails, they will need to specify what these principles are. Here is how this can be done.
As I argued in an earlier post and, in much greater detail, in my recent books Montesquieu and the Logic of Liberty and Soft Despotism, Democracy’s Drift, the American regime is an experiment of a particular kind. In the late eighteenth century, it was almost universally agreed that a republic cannot be sustained on an extended territory. Such was the argument that Montesquieu advanced in the first part of his authoritative book The Spirit of Laws, and he had good reason for advancing such a claim. Athens and Sparta were situated on territories of no great size, and the same could be said for early Rome and for Lucca, Florence, and Venice in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
Late republican Rome was an exception to the rule, to be sure. But – as both Machiavelli in his Discourses on Livy and Montesquieu in his Considerations on the Causes of the Greatness of the Romans and their Decline and Spirit of Laws pointed out — Rome was also the exception that proved the rule. It was a republic that, by dint of conquest, came to be situated on an extended territory and then collapsed. The Framers of the American constitution faced a great challenge, and this they knew.
The challenge was straightforward. Polities situated on extended territories sit at a great distance from the vast majority of the people whom they rule. This is consistent with despotism; and if the distance is not too great, it is consistent with legitimate monarchy and the rule of law as well. But for republics it poses a problem. Governments at a distance from the people they rule tend to be invisible; and when human beings are invisible, they tend rightly to suppose that they can get away with a lot. Moreover, large polities tend to face emergencies more often than small polities, and emergencies require from rulers vigor, alacrity, and resoluteness of the sort most easily provided by a man who can act alone. The challenge facing the American Framers was to devise a constitutional structure capable of producing a government fit for meeting emergencies but unlikely to become, as James Madison once delicately put it, “self-directed.”
To meet this challenge, they turned to the second and third parts of Montesquieu’s Spirit of Laws – where he sketched out two different ways in which a republic can overcome this limitation on its magnitude. It was, he realized, necessary that it do so because – at least in modern times – no small republic could hope to marshal the resources necessary for its self-defense when attacked by monarchies of intermediate size or despotisms immense in size.
The first expedient suggested by Montesquieu was federalism. By means of federalism, a group of republics could project power in the manner of a monarchy while remaining small enough to be genuinely self-governing.
Montesquieu’s second expedient was the separation of powers. By distinguishing along functional lines between the executive power, the legislative power, and the judicial power and by distributing these three powers to different bodies in such a fashion as to render them separate and quasi-autonomous, the English had managed to transform a monarchy into a republic capable of sustaining itself on an extended territory. For emergencies, they had an executive capable of vigor, alacrity, and resoluteness. To prevent that executive from becoming a tyrant, they had a House of Commons responsible to the electorate and capable of calling the executive’s servants to account. To avoid populist excesses, they had a House of Lords capable of checking the House of Commons; and to protect the liberty of the citizens, they had judges who could not easily be removed from office and juries selected from among the peers of those accused.
The Americans combined both expedients. To begin with, they instituted a federation, building on the remnants of the old colonial system and on the structure that existed under the Articles of Confederation. At the center, they established a government of limited powers – capable of defending the nation, of guaranteeing to every state a republican government, of regulating commerce between the states, and of responding to emergencies. To the states and local governments, where the territory was comparatively small, they left all other legitimate powers. To make the federal government in some measure independent of the states, they provided for direct popular election of the House of Representatives; and to enable the states to protect their own prerogatives from federal encroachment, they had the state legislatures elect the federal senate.
At both the state and federal level, the American founders instituted a separation of powers, giving to the executive, the legislators, and the judiciary the means by which to defend their own prerogatives and the motives for doing so – and, by dividing and separating the powers, the Founders sought to make the government and its operations visible to the citizens. Each branch served the general public as a watchdog with regard to the others.
The measures undertaken by the Obama administration and by its supporters in Congress that gave rise to and sustained the Tea-Party Movement all have this in common. They constitute an assault – evident to anyone who cares to look – on our inherited political order. They transgress on the two great principles constitutive of that order. They are inconsistent with federalism and the separation of powers, and nothing speaks to their character more eloquently than the fact that they were crafted in camera behind closed doors, that those who voted on them had not read them, and that they were of such a length as to be incomprehensible even to their putative authors.
Let me be a bit more precise. The two great measures passed since January, 2009 – the healthcare reform bill and the financial-regulation reform bill – presuppose that the federal government can do anything. Both run roughshod over the prerogatives of the states. Neither is consistent with federalism as a principle of governance.
The same can be said with regard to the separation of powers. Both bills presuppose a massive delegation of legislative power to executive agencies. Both presuppose that appointed officials can and should be empowered to issue regulations having the force of law. Both presuppose on the part of both houses of Congress an abdication of the legislative power. Both require a concentration of executive, legislative, and judicial power within a single agency that operations, in effective, behind closed doors. Both promise to give rise to a government that is invisible and unaccountable. The combination of these powers is, Montesquieu asserted, the very emblem of despotism.
My critics will respond that this is nothing new, and they are very nearly right. The administrative state is now nearly a century old. It has existed since the days of Woodrow Wilson. It assumed gigantic proportions under the New Deal and the Great Society. But never was its expansion brazenly and arrogantly thrust upon the American people until now. By the methods that they have employed to secure its aggrandizement, Obama, Emanuel, Pelosi, and Reid have unmasked the administrative state and have made visible its tyrannical potential.
It is the task of John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and their associates to unite their brethren behind a common program designed to roll back the administrative state and to hold them to their commitments. To do this successfully, they must make use of what the Democrats have done in the last few years in such a way as to educate the American people with regard to the roots of the present discontents. What those who joined the Tea-Party Movement sense must in the course of the midterm campaign be made manifest in all of its horror.
I have said it before, and I will say it again. What we need is a return to first principles.

Obama's Education Secretary, Arne Duncan, urged his employees to attend Sharpton's rally...in email.
The Washington Examiner learned of the e-mail from a Department of Education employee who felt uncomfortable with Duncan's request.
"ED staff are invited to join Secretary Arne Duncan, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and other leaders on Saturday, Aug. 28, for the 'Reclaim the Dream' rally and march," began an internal e-mail sent to more than 4,000 employees of the Department of Education on Wednesday." writes Lisa Gartner of the Washington Examiner.
She goes on to write:
"Although the e-mail does not violate the Hatch Act, which forbids federal employees from participating in political campaigns..."
I think I have to disagree with her on this.
The act of using government computer and EMAIL is a violation of the Hatch ACT IF done so in endorsing a partisan political group also.
-at least by my understanding of the email portion of the Act...also "supervisory employees may not invite subordinate employees to political events or otherwise suggest to subordinates that they attend the political event or undertake any partisan political activity."
Certainly Sharpton was a partisan political figure, past and present, representing partisan rhetoric at his rally. Sharpton's comments prior to the rally made it very clear he had a bug up his bun, or a bee in his political bonnet, towards Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor Rally" held on the same day.
At Sharpton's rally he said that Republicans "think we showed up in 2008 and that we won't show up again. But we know how to sucker-punch, and we're coming out again in 2010."
Various speakers praised Obama and took pot shots at Tea Party people.
Sure sounds like a 'partisan political group' to me.
Education Department spokesperson, Sandra Abrevaya, stated the get out and participate email was promoting a "back to school" activity.
Now we've heard everthing.
This kind of end-round spin explanation just shows that they KNEW they were acting in violation, like a Yosi Sergant propaganda sneak play, and once again this administration chooses which laws it will, and will not, abide by.
An investigation would be nice -
...but if history is any indicator for democrats who break the law - a conviction would just get Duncan appointed or elected to some other office somewhere in the re-education plan.
Hilda Solis, Obama’s Secretary of Labor, tells illegal immigrant workers to call her and let her know if they are being fairly paid or not — documented or not:
Apparently Obama's America transformers are willing to make sure that employers acting illegally are to be reported - or protected- for improperly paying illegal workers properly.
Another Obama staffed Social Engineering Agency not doing its job.
Not only does the Obama Administration decide which laws it will and will not follow - but it embraces and encourages lawlessness.
It is unlawful to be in the U.S. without proper documents.
It is unlawful to be working in the U.S. without proper documents.
It is unlawful for employers to hire undocumented workers.
What part of ILLEGAL does the Obama Squad of changers not understand?
Does Obama appoint anyone who follow our laws - or anyone who would enforce them?
Obama and his selected unaccountable administrative people continue to portray their inconsistency to follow American law, foundation and principle.
Hilda Solis, a past keynote speaker of the Democratic Socialists of America, is not only backed by the Communist Party USA but she is one of those affiliate voices of the House Progressive Caucus...
Does Obama know anyone not tied to communists and socialists - Marxists and Anti-America ideals?
Anyone who likes America? Free Market?

If you are like me, watching the news or reading the paper can be an exercise in exasperation. It's so hard to find a place that helps me make sense of the world I see.
Too many important stories are overlooked. And too many times we see mainstream media outlets distorting facts to fit rigid agendas. Not that you've ever heard me complain about the media before. Okay, maybe once or twice.
But there comes a time when you have to stop complaining and do something. And so we decided to hire some actual journalists to launch a new website -- The Blaze. And we moved fast. We built the team and the site in just two months.
We want this to be a place where you can find breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions and engaging videos about the stories that matter most.
The Blaze will be about current news -- and more. It's not just politics and policy. It's looking for insight wherever we find it. We'll examine our culture, deal with matters of faith and family, and we won't be afraid of a history lesson.
The image of flame is a powerful. It has long stood for a burning truth. A truth that is not consumed. The Blaze will pursue truth. Of course we will make mistakes. Honest mistakes. And we'll be quick with corrections. We intend to earn your trust and keep it day in and day out with hard work and a lot of transparency.
And don't expect everything to be deadly serious. Boring is bad. We intend to have plenty of fun.
We've put together a solid team of writers and reporters. I intend to keep them busy by sending a zillion story ideas at all hours.
We're also counting on you. Your comments. Your feedback. Your tips! You will help us build and shape The Blaze.
Thank you in advance.

Obama's illegal propaganda issues were exposed long ago but seemed to disappear from any accounting for it...like so many of Obama's transgressions.
Thankfully this month Rep. Darrell Issa (CA), who seems to make great efforts to keep illuminated Obama's questionable activities on the record, has asked for an accounting.
Perhaps Obama can see November from your House.
[from GOP.gov ]
Rep. Darrell Issa (CA), ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee, has published a report with some damaging information against the Obama Administration. The report covers how the Administration uses campaign-style PR and propaganda to push its policies -- using federal funds to promote a political agenda. The lengthy report is worth reading -- and will likely cause problems for Obama in the future. Here is an excerpt of the executive summary:
Since the beginning of the Obama Administration on January 20, 2009, ordinary Americans have financed and been exposed to an unprecedented number of public relations and propaganda efforts. Federal spending for public relations contracts rose to historically-high levels during the Bush Administration. Under one-party rule in 2009, the White House used the machinery of the Obama campaign to tout the President’s agenda through inappropriate and sometimes unlawful public relations and propaganda initiatives. Congress buoyed the Administration’s propaganda efforts by increasing federal spending on public relations for the first time since 2005.
The Obama Administration frequently used federal resources to promote the President’s agenda. In many cases, the Administration relied on the reach and resources of federal agencies and their personnel to promote certain of the President’s favorite programs. The White House also leveraged ties to the arts and entertainment community to embed propaganda in the content of television programming and artwork. These propaganda efforts violated appropriations riders and federal law prohibiting the use of appropriated funds for publicity or propaganda purposes.
and my Impeach Notes:
Obama's Impeachable Offenses Mount

2) During campaign Obama secretly asked Iraqi officials not to negotiate with the Bush Administration to draw down troops from Iraq.
Obama's Justice Department endangers rule of law and violates civil rights and discrimination law as exposed by former Justice attorney J. Christian Adams.

Update: The rally was wonderful! The speakers- songs - and celebrations to ALL hero's was so great for our country and spirit.
The divisionist Media of course missed the uniting message and concentrated on a race card angle instead...as if celebrating MLK's dreams of all peoples uniting belonged only to the Al Sharpton's - who's comments have been -"...there is no way in the world that I am going to allow him (Beck) to have more people there than us. I hope every Black person in the country will help us to challenge this."
Challenge WHAT- AL? Honoring MLK??
The people gathered at Mr. Beck's rally celebrated Martin Luther King and his dream of 'content of character' while Sharpton and media worried over numbers and skin color.
It seems to be a big deal to the information speculation-sphere that it appeared to many that Glenn Beck was wearing a bulletproof vest...while Most worried for him, others mocked him for being careful.
None of the media that I have heard so far have produced WHY such a vest was necessary- IF he had one on.
For the nojournalist inciters - who look for SIGNS such as our LSPravda media does- they seem to have ignored reporting any of the the lefts signs popping up on the net where real communication gathers.
In fact the media comments that the people showed up without signs- so it was difficult to figure out what the rally was all about...
While the pledge and anthem and prayer and people being honored was being shown I kept track of what some people against Honor were saying on twitter @ (#glennbeck)...
KABOBfest Dr. Alveda King speaking now. How much was she paid?
streetmagix Where is a tactical nuke when you need one
RippDemUp Today is probably the only day that you wished that the DC Sniper was still alive and free.
lannedp @missbanshee Is it wrong that I spend my thinking there has got to be some crazy on the side of decency willing to take him out? #glennbeck
ofinfinitejest I'm kind of hoping Glenn Beck inspires a riot today so he can be imprisoned as a terrorist or treasonist or some shit.

koolgiy You know those white semi-racist crazy christians people normally make fun of? Yeah, they're all in Washington today
danr RT @WadetoBlack Between #GlennBeck rally & Natl Read Comics Day, there's gonna be a shortage of white people inside their homes today.
SAWHEAT1 Well hello there ! Has that pink pig started speaking in tongues yet?
hbeeinc it sounds like #glennbeck is just begging to be assassinated. and if it happens, it will be well staged
soniafaleiro Fingers crossed #glennbeck will topple over while doing the Nazi salute.
cryptonomicon2 #GlennBeck does remind us of the Civil Rights Era -- that is, the people who hated Martin Luther King
tsytsma People are descending on the national mall like flies on shit for #GlennBeck 's #828 Restoring Honor Rally
hbeeinc ooops! #glennbeck forgot to put an asian into his multicultural choir
These are the type of representatives of people who celebrate the lefts hate, do not represent truth, and feel so threatened by values being restored.
These are the kind of people the media represents in silence and Obama instructs to go out and get in your face.
It doesn't surprise me that Mr. Beck may have been wearing protection when you read what these kind of jack-wagons had to say.

MLK surely would not be...yet the left media sure seems to be.
The liberals sure seem to be.
The progressives sure seem to be.
The race-baiters sure seem to be.
Without any foundation whatsoever the folks who gather this week-end at the Restoring Honor to America rally, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, are being labeled maliciously and even threatened with violence and disturbance.
This is not a 'tea party rally' that has been so falsely maligned in the media. But still it is being attacked.
Why is a gathering showing pride in America so threatening to these who threaten?
Why are people coming together to speak of the positives of our history so negatively met by these revisionists?
Why is speaking of the greatness of our country met so angrily by apologists?
Why is a return to faithful foundations so feared by the changers?
Why are people who gather to celebrate honor, integrity, honesty, equality, and the pursuit of such, being labeled with untruths?
Why are people who cast aside apathy and travel hundreds and thousands of miles in belief of true change - spruned for their hope?
Why are Americans who are assembled together to honor our heroes and warriors, who secure our freedoms, being ridiculed and marginalized?
How is it even possible for the left to portray Americans - who come together to Honor America, and to restoring America's awareness of foundation, principles, charity and heroes - as 'extremists' and racists?
Why are these left of center people so afraid of Restoring Honor, value, virtue, history and truth that they can't even repeat the Title and must instead...freeze it...then rename it?
We'll have to see who is against it - and what tactics are used to obscure the message by ridiculing the messengers.
Speaking of messages and messengers:
Remember Obama's Czar- Cass Sunstein - Suggested that the Tea party assemblies could be infiltrated to cause chaos. That of course received no press from the state run media outlets. From PravdaPlanet ObamaNews Organizations such regressive divisional tactics are served daily without regard to consequence or conscience.
I don't recall the exact threat - but my recall is the 'kill the white babies' mouthpiece of the New and improved Black Panthers Party said he'd see Glenn Beck on 8.28...we are still waiting to see if this type of threat violates the new and Improved Department of Unequal Justice's protection policies.
To those going to the rally:
Glenn Beck asks you NOT to bring signs to this rally- this is not to be a "political rally".
He asks you not to be intimidated by those sent to cause trouble.
Do not give the bleeds it leads outlets the satisfaction they seek by being drawn into any confrontations.
To all you who support America and Honor her - have a great and safe week-end!

Some say Obama seems to be disconnected from Americans - IMO, he was never connected at all...
He has not only divided American people beyond political party but has shunned our friends and hugged unfriendlies.
He'll bow to Kings and offer to sit down for tea with Ahmadinejad but Netanyahu gets a drive thru menu and England gets Churchill sent back in a box.
He takes literature from Hugo Chaves but won't except an envelope from Texas Governor Rick Perry.
While the Dalai Lama is shown the back door the Taliban is shown the exit plans.
Obama apologizes to the world for America - and he now tells the UN that the US discriminates against it's citizens.
As he relinquishes our sovereign individualism to UN and foreign governments approvals and collective condemnations he has his own discriminatory Justice Department sue a state of our own Union.
The community agitator, Obama, has never been a Uniter.
I think Obama has already decided he will be a One termer and can simply ignore what ever America, with all it's flaws, wants or needs.
The Sunstein Nudging has been over for quite some time.
If you can not be bribed you will be sued.
Obama instructed - if your neighbors won't Submit to change then get in their face.
If your friends or neighbors complain or disagree report them to our fishy government website.
If you know someone who redistributes what the Obama CHANGE really means than attack, polarize and freeze them as E Pluribus Unum 'extremists'.
It is obvious Obama does not care what the polls say or what the people say or want.
And why should he?
He has all the corrupt financing already in place thanks to the Stimulus Shill to sustain the collapse and control he has set in motion.
He has infiltrated every bureau of government and installed Communists, socialists, Maoists, anti-capitalists, anti-Americans, and they in turn have installed their own radical followers.
He has gotten away with usurping his authority by bypassing Congress on numerous issues. When he can't get what he wants he simply goes around Congress and has his agencies push his agenda 'into law'. The EPA greenhouse gas regulations for instance.
Obama has broken laws in redistribution schemes and trampled the Constitution.
He has his agencies deciding which laws they will and will not enforce.
What he has done for unbiased redress, common sense, and standing in his Socialist Supreme Court appointments will make the 9th Circuit look conservative.
He has been instrumental in organizing the corruption of the voting process for decades.
He has gangsterized the caucus and moves to change the electoral college.
He has taught that Corporations and Capitalists are the evil problem and a 2200 page socialized controlled financial market coup is the answer.
He has shoved a tyrannical socialist medical system down our throats rather than having any real concern for "reforming" insurance companies practices.
I have yet, in nearly 6 decades, to receive a letter telling me to BUY our insurance, pay us a fine, or go to jail, son.
The health care Monopoly Manifesto was deliberately written to eliminate free market medicine and any possibility of your premiums lowering by taxing each industry right out of business - using the employers capitalist instincts to save in 'costs' this Marxist has manipulated the tiny step 'means' to produce his long term 'ends'.
Thus the "you can keep your plan" is a deliberate lie when your plan can not compete with involuntary government plans.
Obama's main transformations are nearly complete. As Pelosi has said - "If the gate is closed, we will go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we will pole vault in. If that doesn't work, we will parachute."
No matter what YOU want we will shove it down your neck because we represent the "Political CLASS" and not You.
Already knowing that they may lose power in November these progressives are reportedly engineering a Lame Duck session in December to use ousted Dems to push through the balance of the Obama regimes take over - such as 'necessarily skyrocketing' costs of Cap n Trade - (Have you ever wondered why it's 'necessary'?)
And it's said (before the elections hint-hint) they will slam through Immigration Amnesty before the borders are secured.
Now that is a plan that should keep a few million more from coming across in droves to qualify,eh?
Obama used 23 million taxpayer dollars to fund a foreign nations get out the VOTE YES in Kenya's Constitution transformation - whose constitutional change agenda was to take that country to pro-communist, pro abortion, and institute Sharia law.
The Obama funded spread the Yes vote won.
Obama's fathers communist dreams are being fulfilled.
Obama and the Dodd-Franks crew have continued policies to bankrupt our country and when the people fall to their knees they will turn to the government to save them...much like Stalin and the plucked chicken scenario...just as we beg for 2 years now for any deregulation and tax reliefs to enable businesses to be ABLE to function so we can get work - to pay for health care we still won't be able to afford.
Obama's individual salvation is a Marxist collective salvation whose destructive tentacles have spread it's mechanics and deposited radicalized minions to every branch of our Countries engine to insure such servitude, gratefulness and success. In their view we're plucked.
Ironic that the community organizer, who agitated poor peoples sores of discontent for power, and whose manufactured enemy was the government, is now itself the government who controls, censors, and labels with ridicule any agitated peoples grievances - from a golf course.
"Power is not a means, it is an end" - socialist George Orwell
In the Obama's "world as it should be" teleprompter - He's done his job.
The problem for Obama is that we are slowly but surely winning, and IMO, Obama is far to lazy to win his transformational War against Americans.
Those poll numbers, above, show that People of NO are Not alone in disagreement with Obama policy - if not ideology.
We must begin in November to put Representatives in place who reflect those principled poll views above for real change...Remove- Replace- Repeal- Restore.
It is Washington that needs to be transformed- Not America.

REAL or FAKE?
"Funded By: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Barack Obama, President."
Have our politicians gone insane or are they deliberately trying to bankrupt our country?
Two point six million dollars to train Chinese prostitutes, IN CHINA, to drink responsibly?
This stimulus Bill that was passed is just jam packed with frivolous bankrupting lunacy.
Cocaine Snorting Monkeys get 71k to a reported $144,541 bucks?
I read that Obama's people tell us that the chimps glutamate system - could teach us something about human addiction.
Dang if that shared teachable moment shouldn't at least create jobs in Obama's House of Addictive Disordered Spenders Caucus when hooked up to a PET scan.
We better hope the stimulated monkeys don't escape and tear down the forty-one $400,000 squirrel bridges to somewhere in Arizona!
Then there's $1.9 million to califurnyah to capture and photo ants in Southwest Indian Ocean Islands and east Africa-
Geeesh send someone over yonder a leftover chicken bone and you'll have all the ants and photos you need overnight. Two million bucks?
The list of waste just keeps getting bigger - 3.2 million for a Florida Turtle tunnel?
Your Tax Dollars at Work.
Someone in Washington needs to put a stop to the balance of the Stimulus Bill being wasted and reduce our deficit with the 340 billion not yet used & abused.

Runaway spending in Washington has Americans speaking out. Rep. Michele Bachmann says our future spending obligations are even larger than are accounted for in the current budget process. She’s proposing a full and honest accounting of all our spending obligations so that Congress has a full picture of our fiscal situation before spending any more money. Spending a concern of yours?

2D SESSION H. RES. ll

to the Committee on _________________
Pledging not to assemble on or between the dates of November 2, 2010 and January 3, 2011, except in the case
of an unforeseen, sudden emergency requiring immediate action from Congress.
Whereas the 111th Congress has failed in its promise to be
the most open Congress in history, but has instead lost
the public’s trust by engaging in unprecedented political
procedures to advance a partisan agenda;
Whereas on January 18, 2006, House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi stated in prepared remarks, ‘‘Democrats
are leading the effort to turn the most closed, corrupt
Congress in history into the most open and honest Congress in history.’’;
Whereas on November 7, 2006, House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi stated, ‘‘The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the
Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open,
and most ethical Congress in history.’’;
Whereas on November 16, 2006, incoming House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi stated, ‘‘This leadership team will create
the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress
Whereas on December 6, 2006, incoming House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi stated, ‘‘We promised the American people
that we would have the most honest and open Government and we will.’’;
Whereas incoming Majority Whip Clyburn stated on December 8, 2006 that, ‘‘Democrats will exercise better leadership in the new Congress and work to raise the standard
of ethics in this body’’;
Whereas Speaker Pelosi spoke of individual Member’s ethics
on January 31, 2007 when she stated, ‘‘These strong
[ethics] rules are significant steps toward honest leadership; enforcing these rules is critical to ensuring every
Member of Congress lives up to the highest ethical standard’’;
Whereas on January 5, 2010, while at a press conference
during the health care debate, Speaker Pelosi stated,
‘‘There has never been a more open process for any legislation’’;
Whereas this statement was reiterated by the Speaker while
at a press conference on February 26, 2010, when a reporter prefaced a question about Rangel by noting that
Speaker Pelosi had promised to run the ‘‘most ethical
and honest Congress in history’’ she interrupted him to
say: ‘‘And we are.’’;
Whereas more bills were considered under closed rules, 64
total, in the 110th Congress under Democrat control,
than in the previous Congress, 49, under Republican control;
Whereas fewer bills were considered under open rules, 10
total, in the 110th Congress under Democrat control,
than in the previous Congress, 22, under Republican control;
Whereas zero bills have been considered so far in the 111th
Congress under an open rule;
Whereas 26 bills have been considered so far in the 111th
Congress under a closed rule, under Democrat control;
Whereas this Congress is the highest spending Congress in
United States history;
Whereas this Congress has presided over the two highest
budget deficits in United States history at a time when
the public debt is higher than at any other time in history;
Whereas this Congress began its mortgage of the Nation’s future with a ‘‘stimulus’’ package costing $1.1 trillion that
failed to lower unemployment, spur economic growth, or
actually address the needs of struggling American business and families;
Whereas this Congress continued its free-flowing spending
with an increase of $72.4 billion in nonemergency discretionary spending in fiscal year 2009 to reach a total
spending level of $1.01 trillion for the first time in
United States history;
Whereas this Congress approved a budget resolution in 2009
that proposed the six largest nominal deficits in American history and included tax increases of $423 billion
during a period of sustained high unemployment;
Whereas this Congress disregarded the needs and opinions of
everyday Americans by passing a national energy tax bill
that would increase costs on nearly every aspect of American lives by up to $3,000 per year, eliminate millions of
jobs, reduce workers’ income, and devastate economic
Whereas this Congress disregarded the needs and opinions of
everyday Americans by passing a massive Government
takeover of health care that will force millions of Americans from their health insurance plans, increase premiums and costs for individuals and employers, raise
taxes by $569.2 billion, and fund abortions—at a cost of
$2.64 trillion over the first ten years of full implementation;
Whereas this Congress nationalized the student loan industry
with a potential cost of 30,000 private sector jobs and
$50.1 billion over ten years;
Whereas this Congress passed the DISCLOSE Act in violation of the first amendment, hindering citizens associations’ and corporations’ free speech while leaving all
unions exempt from many of the new requirements, in
order to try and influence the outcome of 2010 elections;
Whereas in spite of House Budget Committee Chairman’s
2006 statement that ‘‘if you can’t budget, you can’t govern’’, the Democrat leadership has failed to introduce a
budget resolution in 2010 as mandated by law, but instead self-executed a ‘‘deeming resolution’’ that increases
nonemergency discretionary spending in fiscal year 2011
by $30 billion to $1.121 trillion, setting another new
record for the highest level in United States history;
Whereas this Congress has failed Main Street through passage of a financial system takeover that fails to end the
moral hazard of too-big-to-fail, does not address the
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac behemoths, and creates numerous new boards, councils, and positions with unconstitutionally broad authorities that will interfere with the
creation of wealth and jobs;
Whereas this Congress has wasted taxpayer funds on an unnecessary and unconstitutional auto industry bailout, a
‘‘cash for clunkers’’ program, a home remodification program (‘‘cash for caulkers’’), and countless other pork
barrel projects while allowing the public debt to reach its
highest level in United States history;
Whereas Democrats have recently insinuated that significant
legislative matters would deliberately not be addressed
during the 111th Congress until after the midterm elections in November 2010;
Whereas the New York Times reported on June 19, 2010
that, ‘‘For all the focus on the historic federal rescue of
the banking industry, it is the government’s decision to
seize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in September 2008
that is likely to cost taxpayers the most money. ... Republicans want to sever ties with Fannie and Freddie once
the crisis abates. The Obama administration and Congressional Democrats have insisted on postponing the argument until after the midterm elections.’’;
Whereas the Washington Times reported on June 22, 2010
that House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer stated, ‘‘a
budget, which sets out binding one-year targets and a
multiyear plan, is useless this year because Congress has
shunted key questions about deficits to the independent
debt commission created by President Obama, which is
due to report back at the end of this year.’’;
Whereas the Hill reported on June 24, 2010 that Senator
Tom Harkin, a Democrat from Iowa, suggested that
Democrats ‘‘might attempt to move ‘card-check’ legislation this year, perhaps during a lame-duck session. ... ‘A
lot of things can happen in a lame-duck session, too,’ he
said in reference to EFCA.’’;
Whereas the New York Times published an article on June
28, 2010 titled ‘‘Lame-Duck Session Emerges as Possibility for Climate Bill Conference’’ that declares ‘‘many
expect the final energy or climate bill to be worked out
during the lame-duck session between the November election and the start of the new Congress in January.’’;
Whereas the Hill reported on July 1, 2010 that ‘‘Democratic
leaders are likely to punt the task of renewing Bush-era
tax cuts until after the election. Voters in November’s
midterms will thus be left without a clear idea of their
future tax rates when they go to the polls.’’;
Whereas the Wall Street Journal reported on July 13, 2010
that, ‘‘there have been signs in recent weeks that party
leaders are planning an ambitious, lame-duck session to
muscle through bills in December they don’t want to defend before November. Retiring or defeated members of
Congress would then be able to vote for sweeping legislation without any fear of voter retaliation.’’;
Whereas the Hill reported on July 27, 2010 that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said, at the recent Netroots
Nation conference of liberal bloggers, in reference to
Democrats’ unfinished priorities, ‘‘We’re going to have to
have a lame duck session, so we’re not giving up.’’;
Whereas the Hill reported in the same piece on July 27,
2010 that the lame duck session will include priorities
such as ‘‘comprehensive immigration reform, climate
change legislation and a whole host of other issues’’;
Whereas the Declaration of Independence notes that governments ‘‘[derive] their just powers from the consent of the
Whereas the American people have expressed their loss of
confidence through self-organized and self-funded taxpayer marches on Washington, at countless ‘‘tea party’’
events, at town halls and speeches, and with numerous
letters, emails, and phone calls to their elected representatives;
Whereas a reconvening of Congress between the regularly
scheduled Federal election in November and the start of
the next session of Congress is known as a ‘‘lame-duck
session of Congress’’;
Whereas the Democrat majority has all-but-announced plans
to use any ‘‘lame-duck Congress’’ to advance currently
unattainable, partisan policies that are widely unpopular

The Dem's and their Leaders have ignored the will of the majority of America for the last 18 months.
The "consent of the governed" has been rejected.
While some positioned themselves for sweetheart deals, others were bribed, and still others pretended to balk at moving to the left (when their blue-dog districts protested) so as not to upset their own chances of re-elections. Yet in the end they all folded to corruption and deceit while blaming the Republicans for obstruction. The time consuming positioning of their own self-interests and bartering with the Chicago machine came before the best interests of the Country.
Come November there is expected to be a reckoning removing the people who have traded our trust in for slavery to government, corralled freedoms, dwindling liberties, and personal abuse of power.
Already they speak of, and plan for, a Lame Duck Succession - ignoring those who remove their governing power in November - and in a last ditch effort to further shove progressive policy down our throats these post rejected Dem's are conspiring to cast votes in December to further the Obama's socialist goals after the November elections.
Senator Harry Reid(D) has already admitted this manipulation may be employed to bypass further the will of the peoples. "We're going to have to have a lame duck session, so we're not giving up."
Mr. Price's intentions with this Bill are great. But other than exposing what the Dem's have planned should they lose the House and/or Senate - I'd bet a 6 pak that they aren't going to make this pledge.
December looks to be as important as November for us.
On Tuesday, August 10, the U.S. House will vote on this legislation that would stop a Lame Duck session by prohibiting Congress from meeting between November 2 and January 3.

A partial look at what NOW stands between you and your Doctor - don't say we didn't try to warn you.
[ Congressman Kevin Brady 8th district of Texas ]
AMERICA'S NEW HEALTH CARE SYSTEM REVEALED
UPDATED CHART SHOWS OBAMACARE'S BEWILDERING COMPLEXITY
Washington, D.C. - Four months after U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously declared "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it,"a congressional panel has released the first chart illustrating the 2,801 page health care law President Obama signed into law in March.
Developed by the Joint Economic Committee minority, led by U.S Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas and Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, the detailed organization chart displays a bewildering array of new government agencies, regulations and mandates.
"For Americans, as well as Congressional Democrats who didn’t bother to read the bill, this first look at the final health care law confirms what many fear, that reform morphed into a monstrosity of new bureaucracies, mandates, taxes and rationing that will drive up health care costs, hurt seniors and force our most intimate health care choices into the hands of Washington bureaucrats,"said Brady, the committee’s senior House Republican. "If this is what passes for health care reform in America, then God help us all."
Brownback, the committee’s ranking member, added, "This updated chart illustrates the overwhelming expansion of government control over health choices and the bewildering complexity facing everyone affected by this law. It doesn’t take long to see how the recently signed health care bill causes a hugely expensive and explosive expansion of federal control over health care. Personal choices that should be between a doctor and a patient will quickly be strangled in a never ending web of bureaucracy."
Senate Steering Committee Chairman Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) called Obamacare "a bureaucratic nightmare. The Democrats’ takeover of health care creates a byzantine network of 159 new federal programs and bureaucracies to make decisions that should be between just the patient and their doctor. It should concern everyone that at the center of this regulatory web is the new CMS chief, Donald Berwick, who has championed rationing and European socialized medicine. Americans were rightly outraged that this big government bill was rushed through Congress before anyone read or fully understood the bill’s consequences. Republicans will fight to repeal this reckless takeover and to ensure health care freedom to American families."
In addition to capturing the massive expansion of government and the overwhelming complexity of new regulations and taxes, the chart portrays:
$569 billion in higher taxes;
$529 billion in cuts to Medicare;
swelling of the ranks of Medicaid by 16 million;
17 major insurance mandates; and
the creation of two new bureaucracies with powers to impose future rationing: the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the Independent Payments Advisory Board.
Brady admits committee analysts could not fit the entire health care bill on one chart. "This portrays only about one-third of the complexity of the final bill. It’s actually worse than this."

If you want someone who embraces what the Founding Fathers envisioned, a straight shooting, qualified citizen-politician to go to Washington and serve, then I hope to earn your support. -- Christine O’Donnell
We all know how a single politician (like a Snowe or a Collins) thousands of miles away can help shove down our throats unwanted 'changes' even when they do not represent us.
If we are to ever restore our country from insanity and dependence to common sense and independence then we must begin by paying more attention to who is being elected elsewhere also and helping to get people who represent our founding values elected.
People who are going to fight Obama's socialist machine and believe in Capital free markets. People who believe in limited Government. People who listen to the overwhelming will of the people. People who's 'individual freedom' isn't subject to collective salvation and ear marked entitlement poll numbers. People who won't burden, tax and regulate so excessively that you fall to your dependent knees begging to be saved and given relief.
People who believe in, and abide by, the Constitution and don't try every trick available to bypass it. People who not only represent what is best for their State but for the Country.
I don't know a lot about Christine O’Donnell yet - I am still reading and watching- but from what I have heard so far on camera she sounds to be just such a "people"...
Thanks Eric Odom - The Activist Traveler - for some heads up information on Christine.

Once again it is Collins, Snowe, Graham, and self interest turn-coat Specter who aid and abet the Obama transformation of our republic.
In a vote of 63 Yea and 37 Nay - Elena Kagan was confirmed to The U.S. Supreme Court today.
Did you listen to Harry Reid's lil speech on Kagan and his vote of Yes?
(I'll have to wait to find a transcript) What I heard him say was how great Kagen will be for progressive advancement - 'the people vs Corporations'? - (more accuracy to be added when I get text) ... Reid actually revealed exactly who Kagen is and what they can expect of her (biased) voting future.
Kagan is anti- speech, anti- military, pro socialism and International & Shiria law, and this is the best Obama can come up with? Or mearly the best for his fundamental transformation...
This appointment is another "party within a party" Allied cog in fast tracking to a New Party ObamaLand reConstitution of "unequal distributive justice" and a major blockade to any Repeal Replace and Reform when the majority of American cases of resistance to unconstitutional mandates come before this activist - infiltrated - Supreme Court.
As seven million voters (why even vote??) in California have discovered a vote of ONE can, and has, overturned what the PEOPLE believe is best for them and their society. Again and Again these liberal federal judges, like the one in Arizona, ignore and override the will of the people, and even the Nation, and impose their own radical opinion.
Ironic that these progressives who fight so hard to change our republic into a 'democracy' - and work so hard to strip family and individualism into a societal collective of government controlled given liberties - ignore a collective individual majority vote when it suits their own agenda.
Thanks to some like Collins, Snowe, Graham, Lugar, Gregg, Specter, and consistently Lieberman, the Obama 'collective salvation' transformation has in place the radical Marxist management to proceed and the judges in place at every level to repel any obstruction of objection to this Obama "Dreams of my Father - and the Kenyan communist "change" manifesto of Papa O.
This support of the few is why Obama thinks he 'still has the keys' even if the Republicans get back on the pavement. The chess pieces are in place to check those who don't conform willingly.
Kagan should never have been confirmed; but her sober dreams of a rebirth of the 'left of liberalism' is on the way to our Supreme Court to make sure Obama's more-perfect historically failed-utopia is not threatened by American lawsuits.
Collins, Snowe, Graham, Specter, have consistently made it a much more difficult task to stop this Obama Regime no matter How Many of these politicians we replace in November.
And now this!
These transformational Newest Deal enablers - have not protected and preserved our Constitution nor defended we the people being removed from it.
They are still not listening - or caring.
Replace them we must. Repeal we must. Reform we must.
We must go on fighting for our individual freedoms of CHOICE (peacefully) and stopping Obama's usurpation of it.
We must get our VOTE back and make it count for something.
Stand up like they did in Missouri and tell 'em to stuff their seizure of our liberty and independence.
Do not let Missouri and Arizona and Virginia stand alone. Together we can take this country back from this socialist machine in pursuit of their transformation of America and restore the foundations of Old Glory back into the care of people who love America.
