Obama Says Republicans Have been Making Health Care Reform Look Like a Bolshevik Plot. But Doesn't Deny that it isn't.....

Yesterday, President Obama spoke to the Republican Party and accused them of making Health Care look like some Bolshevik Plot. Here is the Video from that event:





Funny part is, the President and the Democrats have been doing a fine job of that by themselves.

This Video from Naked Emperor News illustrates how the President and the Progressives have been pushing and are pushing for an eventual Single Payer System:






Funny, I didn't see one Republican in that Video montage making President Obama's Plan look like a Bolshevik Plot. The President was doing a fine job of it himself.

But some critics may say that just because he has said he supports a Socialist type Single Payer system, it doesn't make him a Socialist/Marxist.

Really?

Then why was Barack Obama a Member of the Socialist New Party when he ran for the Illinois Senate?








If that isn't enough, here is a Radio Interview where Obama admits he believes in the Socialist/Communist Principles of Wealth Redistribution through the court system:







But more recently during the Democratic Presidential Debate, the President admits he wants a "fair" tax system so that he could fund Government Run Health Care. That Fair Tax he refers to is a major tax on the Wealthy so that their Wealth can be redistributed through a Government Single Payer System:







Even in Obama's Book, Dreams of My Father, he admits he chose his Friends carefully, and some of them were Marxist Professors:







But what many people have seemed to miss in his speech is that while Obama accuses the Republicans of making the Health Care Plan look like a Bolshevik Plot, he never actually denies that it isn't......Does he? He claims the Plan is 'Centrist". Yea Centrists for Progressives, but radical for every other freedom Loving American.


For President Obama, it's not always about what he says, but sometimes what he doesn't say that matters.



Of course what he has been saying all along, until he became President, is that he is a Marxist with the Ultimate Goal of a Socialist Single Payer Government Run Health Care system.


Maybe we should take the President at his Word or Lack of Words...



The Health Care Bill was made to look like a Bolshevik Plot....


Because it is...

Statement From James O'Keefe

Here is a Staement From James O'Keefe, on Big Government, about the arrest that took place. It seems the media has, yet again, made a mess of the truth.

"Statement from James O’Keefe
by James O'Keefe

The government has now confirmed what has always been clear: no one tried to wiretap or bug Senator Landrieu’s office. Nor did we try to cut or shut down her phone lines. Reports to this effect over the past 48 hours are inaccurate and false.

As an investigative journalist, my goal is to expose corruption and lack of concern for citizens by government and other institutions, as I did last year when our investigations revealed the massive corruption and fraud perpetuated by ACORN. For decades, investigative journalists have used a variety of tactics to try to dig out and reveal the truth.

I learned from a number of sources that many of Senator Landrieu’s constituents were having trouble getting through to her office to tell her that they didn’t want her taking millions of federal dollars in exchange for her vote on the healthcare bill. When asked about this, Senator Landrieu’s explanation was that, “Our lines have been jammed for weeks.” I decided to investigate why a representative of the people would be out of touch with her constituents for “weeks” because her phones were broken. In investigating this matter, we decided to visit Senator Landrieu’s district office – the people’s office – to ask the staff if their phones were working.

On reflection, I could have used a different approach to this investigation, particularly given the sensitivities that people understandably have about security in a federal building. The sole intent of our investigation was to determine whether or not Senator Landrieu was purposely trying to avoid constituents who were calling to register their views to her as their Senator. We video taped the entire visit, the government has those tapes, and I’m eager for them to be released because they refute the false claims being repeated by much of the mainstream media.

It has been amazing to witness the journalistic malpractice committed by many of the organizations covering this story. MSNBC falsely claimed that I violated a non-existent “gag order.” The Associated Press incorrectly reported that I “broke in” to an office which is open to the public. The Washington Post has now had to print corrections in two stories on me. And these are just a few examples of inaccurate and false reporting. The public will judge whether reporters who can’t get their facts straight have the credibility to question my integrity as a journalist.

Obama: "We've Been Very Consistent on the Influence of Lobbyists"



.

State's Respond to Obama's Executive Order Limiting States Use of their Own National Guard

What is being interpreted, by some, as a move to Prevent the States from Resisting Federal Aggression, President Obama signed an executive order limiting the Actions of the States' National Guard.

According to an Article on WND, there is a move by the States to now counter that executive order:

"Responding to an executive order by President Obama, a new push is under way for states to adopt laws limiting the use of their National Guard units unless there is an invasion, insurrection or other limited circumstance.

As WND reported, Obama's order establishes a new "Council of Governors" designated to advise on the "synchronization and integration of state and federal military activities in the United States."

The recent order, posted on the White House website, was accompanied by the explanation that the group is to work "to protect our nation against all types of hazards." It comes just weeks after the president issued a similarly obscure order vastly expanding INTERPOL's privileges in the U.S.

The White House said the new council is to include governors and administration officials to review "such matters as involving the National Guard of the various states; homeland defense, civil support; synchronization and integration of state and federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities."

However, there was no definition of the group's authority. Can the council recommend "military activities" and can the governors, who already are in command of their own state guard units, mandate activities outside of their areas of jurisdiction? The White House did not respond to WND questions on the issue."

$24,000 To Help Counter Glenn and Tea Baggers

According to an Article in WND, the DNC and Move on.org organizations are placing ads on Craigs List like this:
"Help-wanted ads are appearing on Craigslist that offer to pay citizens $24,000 a year, plus health insurance, to "counter the hysteria and lies of Glenn Beck and other talking heads" and "stop the tea-baggers!"

The ads are being posted by Grassroots Campaigns, a for-profit canvassing group that has performed services for the Democratic National Committee and MoveOn.org. Its postings can be found among Craiglist listings in Chicago, Ill.; San Francisco, Calif.; Boston, Mass.; Philadelphia, Penn. and Austin, Texas.

"Whose agenda will win in 2010?" the ad asks. "You decide."

Craiglist posting offers salary to 'stop the tea-baggers.'

It continues, "Change takes work. After the 2008 election, we know what's possible when millions of people commit themselves to creating the world they want to see – but we also know that one election is only the beginning. Across the country, the struggle for human rights, marriage equality, and reproductive rights continues.
To counter the hysteria and lies of Glenn Beck and other talking heads, progressives need to get organized and get activated – and we don't have a moment to lose!!"

It seems that the Progressive Left is getting desperate in their attempts to push through the President's agenda.

ACORN Exposer, James Okeefe Arrested

According to an Article in Politico, James O'Keefe, the man who exposed the ACORN corruption in several different offices all over the Country, has been arrested today:

"Federal authorities have arrested four men on felony charges for attempting to infiltrate Sen. Mary Landrieu’s New Orleans office, including one filmmaker who targeted the community group ACORN last year in damaging undercover videos.

Among those arrested was 25-year-old James O’Keefe, the conservative filmmaker, along with Joseph Basel, Robert Flanagan and Stan Dai, all 24. They were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses and attempting to gain access to the Democrat’s office by posing as telephone repairmen, according to a copy of an FBI affidavit unsealed Tuesday."

Obama Praise Letters Planted In Media

I have known that Organizing for America(OFA), Obama's Political Action Group, has "created" calls to congress in order to help push the President's Agenda through. But now it appears that the Supporters of the president have stooped to a new low, issuing "Form" letters to newspapers and websites acting like "everyday citizens".

According to an Article in World Net Daily(WND), it is a wide spread form of fraud:

"Obama supporters are flooding newspapers with pro-Obama letters purportedly from average citizens – with duplicate messages appearing in more than 70 publications across the nation.

One writer identified as "Ellie Light" has published identical form letters in newspapers around the country. Sabrina Eaton of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Light claims to have different hometowns within the respective newspaper readership areas. Each letter is nearly identical in grammar, style and subject.

Light's letters have appeared in many mainstream publications, including Politico.com, the Washington Times, USA Today and even Thailand's Bangkok Post."


Now it appears the President is so low in the polls that they not only manufacture calls to Congress, but letters in support of him as well.

Pathetic....

The Warren County Patriots



Every Sunday at the Corner of Hwy 47 and Old Hwy 40 from 1:30 pm. to 2:30 Pm, the Warren County Patriots(WCP) gather to Protest what they, and many others see, as the continued destruction of our liberties by the Progressives in the Government.

Some of those that I met have been Protesting on this corner from the beginning of the conception of the WCP, while for others this was their first time. But they all braved the cold and chilling winds in order to stand up for Freedom and Liberty.

I expect the WCP will have an influx of new numbers as the President continues to push his Radical Agenda on an American Populace that overwhelmingly Rejects it.

Because as more and more people become disenfranchised with the system, they will be turning to others for Answers and Guidance.

And Just like the Corners Protests in Wentzville and O'fallon, the Warren County Patriots will be there to offer the much needed Leadership and Constitutional Direction for those searching for the True meaning of "We the People".


Here are some Pictures of the Patriots practicing their Right to Free Speech.

President's Organization Admits To Having Hit Some "Serious Bumps in the Road"

The President's Organization, Organizing for America, admits in a recent E-mail that the Road to cahnge has hit some serious snags. But it appears the President is going to do what he wants, even if the majority ofthe nation is against it. Here is the E-mail:

"On Wednesday evening, President Obama will deliver his first State of the Union address. It comes at a critical moment.

We must regroup, refocus, and re-engage on the vital work ahead. So let's watch it together at a State of the Union Watch Party in your neighborhood.

We've hit some serious bumps in the road recently in our march toward change. We always knew it would be difficult, but this past week has definitely been a hard one, for all of us.

But this movement didn't come so far without making it through some challenging times. It's at moments like these when we need you most. People are hurting. Our country is at a crossroads, and in communities like yours all across America we must all fight for the progress our families and businesses need to thrive.

The President's resolve has never been stronger to keep fighting for health insurance reform, for lasting job creation, and to rein in the big banks and fight the undue influence of lobbyists. Wednesday's speech will be a pivotal moment for us all to get on the same page and continue the fight together.

In just two days, OFA supporters like you will be gathering at State of the Union Watch Parties in living rooms and community centers across the country. You can share ideas and experiences -- and I'll be joining on the phone for a special strategy huddle before the speech.

Find and RSVP for a State of the Union Watch Party near
you:

http://my.barackobama.com/AttendSOTU

I hope you can join us,

David Plouffe

P.S. -- Volunteers have set up hundreds of Watch Parties over the last few days. But if there isn't one yet near you, just sign up to host one yourself. It's easy and fun, local OFA organizers will help you with any questions you have, and it's an incredibly important way to let supporters near you be part of the action:

A Year's Worth of Obama Pushing Health Care

Communists Angry over a Propsal for a "Deficit Commission"

As the political landscape is chaning once again in washington, those that support Socialism and the Socialistic programs that have been put into place by progressives of the past are trying to hold on to every Piece of Socialistic program int he Country. So much so, that the Communist Party USA is even against a proposed "Deficit Commission" that would come up with proposals to help balance the nations budget and possible stave off economic collapse.

Here is the Article from the Communist News People's World, where they express their fears of cuts in any of the Social Programs for Any Reason:

"A group of conservative lawmakers, operating under the radar, is about to hatch yet another scheme and this one would kill a lot more than just health care reform, progressives are warning.

With Medicare, Social Security and jobs programs as their target and under cover of a "deficit commission," Sens. Kent Conrad, D-ND, and Judd Greg, R-NH, are trying to put in place a system that would allow a select group of lawmakers to bypass the normal legislative process by preventing debate on bills that the group says add to the federal deficit.

Leaders of some 50 organizations declared their opposition to the idea at a news conference Thursday sponsored by the Campaign for America's Future.

They warned that the move to kill the normal democratic process for generating a bill will come up any day now in the Senate, where the Conrad-Judd proposal is part of a bill to raise the debt ceiling. That ceiling will have to be raised if the federal government is to avoid shutting down for lack of funds.

The scheme would forbid any amendments to the new commission's rulings on particular bills from being proposed in either house of Congress.

Adding to the danger, the progressive leaders warned, is the fact that a minority of pro-austerity, anti-Social Security, anti-Medicare senators is planning to make matters worse by forcing the entire U.S. government into default unless the Senate agrees to a version of the commission proposal that is to their liking.

Roger Hickey, co-director of the Campaign for America's Future, warned at the press conference that the "deficit commission" would "undemocratically subvert the normal legislative process and recklessly target Social Security and Medicare."

Speakers at the press conference backed the approach to deficit reduction laid out last month by the AFL-CIO at a jobs creation forum - that the best way to bring down the deficit long term is to spend the money now that is needed for a massive jobs creation program which, in turn, will generate both income for workers and taxes for government coffers.

Pro-labor Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman has also described deficit spending as a necessary tool to lay the groundwork for smaller deficits in the long term.

Joan Entmacher of the National Women's Law Center said that responsible ways to cut the deficit are available now, without having to wait for a commission, "if the right-wingers weren't only interested in slashing Social Security, Medicare and jobs programs."

"Health care reform has been established by the Congressional Budget Office to provide significant budget deficit reduction and targeting the financial industry by forcing hedge fund managers to pay regular income taxes is another example," she said.

Predicting that conservative Democrats will cite the Brown victory in Massachusetts as a reason to back formation of the commission, Gerald Shea, a spokesperson for the AFL-CIO, said, "Deep cuts are wrong-headed in this present atmosphere when voters are demanding action to solve the jobs crisis."

Hillary Shelton of the NAACP said responsibility for deficit reduction should remain with the democratically elected officials from all over the country and not handed to an elite group of lawmakers."

British News: We need to debate what the NHS should treat

One of the British News papers has posted an Op ed about the need for a discussion about the Rationing of their National Health Service(NHS). Oddly enough they are finding that they can't afford to pay for everything, for everyone. Here is apart of the Article:

"We are what we eat; and in the case of a significant minority of the population of this country, that means we are very large. Indeed, so many are so large that the NHS has been forced to ration surgical treatment intended to help prevent excessively fat people eating such substantial quantities. Nearly one million people now fit the criteria for severe obesity set down by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice), the body that makes judgments on cost grounds about whether certain drugs can be prescribed free to cancer patients or arthritis sufferers.

Rationing has long been built into the NHS (prescription charges are a form of rationing by price), as it must be since demand is almost unlimited. Where, then, do the grossly overweight figure in the scheme of things? Should they receive treatment on the NHS, or be told to stop eating so much and take exercise? The temptation to take a high-handed approach is strong. Many people who are overweight have to take some responsibility for their condition.


On the other hand, were they to receive surgery, such as the fitting of gastric bands to stop them eating, this would reduce the risk of their contracting diabetes or a host of other illnesses and complications that, in the long run, would cost the NHS much more than surgery. However, the number of obese people is growing so rapidly that surgery cannot possibly be offered to all of them. Perversely, they are being encouraged by some NHS trusts to grow even bigger in order to reach higher body mass index levels that will qualify them for treatment as morbidly obese.

There are difficult ethical issues here. It is clearly impossible for the NHS to fund everything that people want. It is hard to argue that a health service unable to provide drugs to cancer sufferers should be subsidising cosmetic surgery, IVF treatment for couples unable to have children, or gastric bands. Circumstances that were once considered misfortunes, such as infertility, are now classed as illnesses; and because it is possible for the wealthy to pay for private IVF treatment, it is then regarded as elitist not to offer the same treatment on the NHS to those who cannot afford it."

Obama to Nationalize Student Loan Program

According to an Article on CNS News, President Obama is going to nationalize the Student Loan Programs:


"A bill currently before the Senate would empower the Obama administration to nationalize the student lending industry, eliminating the federally subsidized private loans millions of university students rely on to finance their educations.

The Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act – currently being considered by the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee – would eliminate the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) program. FFEL loans are federally subsidized and make up approximately 80 percent of the student lending industry."

Obama's Pick to Head TSA Withdraws

According to an Article on Politico.com, Errol Southers, Obama's pick to head the Transportation and Security Administration, has withdrawn today amid Controversy over his wishes to unionise TSA Employees:

"President Obama's nominee to lead the Transportation Security Administration withdrew from consideration Wednesday, saying his appointment had "become a lightning rod for those who have chosen to push a political agenda at the risk of the safety and security of the American people."
.
Errol Southers's nomination had been stalled due to a hold placed by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who said he had concerns about whether Southers would implement collective bargaining for TSA employees. Southers was also dogged by concerns about an episode in which he, as an FBI agent, used law enforcement resources to run a background check on his estranged wife's boyfriend.
.
Southers said in a statement Wednesday: “I was extremely excited about the opportunity to lead the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and fulfill Secretary Napolitano’s objective to develop it into the best organization of its kind in the world, however, it is apparent that this path has been obstructed by political ideology. I have decided, after deep reflection and in consultation with my family and friends to respectfully withdraw my name from consideration for confirmation as the Assistant Secretary for the TSA. It is clear that my nomination has become a lightning rod for those who have chosen to push a political agenda at the risk of the safety and security of the American people. This partisan climate is unacceptable and I refuse to allow myself to remain part of their dialogue. The TSA has important work to be done and I regret I will not be part of their success. I would like to thank the President, Secretary Napolitano and all of the people at the Department of Homeland Security who worked tirelessly to successfully move my nomination through two Senate committees during the past seven months.”

City Council Bans Road Side Shrines, Claims it Distracts Drivers

It seems the ever over reaching government of the UK is getting even more intrusive, even on the local level.

According to an Article in the Daily Mail, the city council of Bolton wants all Road Side Tributes over safety concerns:

"Leaving a floral tribute at the scene of a road death can often help grieving relatives get over their loss.

But now one council plans to tear down all memorials to road accident victims after just 30 days.

Highways bosses say the tributes can be a distraction to other motorists and could cause a fatal accident themselves.


They also claim relatives often endanger themselves by walking on busy junctions and dual carriageways to place flowers.

Because of this, Bolton Council wants to remove all tributes after just 30 days. Instead bereaved relatives will have to place flowers and tributes at a designated remembrance tree with an inscription panel in a town park.

But families who have lost loved ones on the roads branded the decision as 'heartless' and have launched a campaign against the move.

Michaela Bate, whose daughter, Carla, 13, was killed by a drunk driver in Farnworth, Bolton, in August 2004 said: 'I have objected in the strongest way possible.

'Who are the council to tell me that I cannot have a memorial at the site where my daughter was killed?"

An Unwelcome Katrina Redux

Here is an Article from the Russian News Pravda where they claim President Obama's response is no better than Bush's response to Katrina. Here is apart of the Article:

"President Obama's response to the tragedy in Haiti has been robust in military deployment and puny in what the Haitians need most: food; first responders and their specialized equipment; doctors and medical facilities and equipment; and engineers, heavy equipment, and heavy movers. Sadly, President Obama is dispatching Presidents Bush and Clinton, and thousands of Marines and U.S. soldiers. By contrast, Cuba has over 400 doctors on the ground and is sending in more; Cubans, Argentinians, Icelanders, Nicaraguans, Venezuelans, and many others are already on the ground working--saving lives and treating the injured. Senegal has offered land to Haitians willing to relocate to Africa.

The United States, on the day after the tragedy struck, confirmed that an entire Marine Expeditionary Force was being considered "to help restore order," when the "disorder" had been caused by an earthquake striking Haiti; not since 1751, 1770, 1842, 1860, and 1887 had Haiti experienced an earthquake. But, I remember the bogus reports of chaos and violence the led to the deployment of military assets, including Blackwater, in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. One Katrina survivor noted that the people needed food and shelter and the U.S. government sent men with guns. Much to my disquiet, it seems, here we go again. From the very beginning, U.S. assistance to Haiti has looked to me more like an invasion than a humanitarian relief operation."

Ban Butter to Save Lives?

Well in the 20's the Government decided it needed prohibition of Alcohol to save lives. But in recent years, City and National Governments all over the world have banned everything from trans fats to control of Salt in food. Now some yahoo wants to ban Butter.

According to an Article in the Telegraph.Uk a Leading Doctor thinks Governments should ban Butter to save lives:

"Dr Shyam Kolvekar said that he is "increasingly concerned" about the nation's eating habits as he is seeing patients as young as 30 in need of heart bypass surgery due to a diet "overloaded" with saturated fat.

By banning butter and replacing it with a healthy spread the average daily sat fat intake would be reduced by 8g – that's 40 per cent of a women's GDA - Guideline Daily Amount. The GDA for a woman is 20g and for a man it's 30g.

"People should also avoid any foods that are solid at room temperature like cheese and red meat. And if you can't survive without red meat then make sure you cut all the fat off it.

"This would save thousands of lives each year and help to protect them from cardiovascular disease – the UK's biggest killer."


If you take all of the Good food and Fun out of life, whats the point of living?

Head of IMF warns of "Double Dip Downturn"

It seems that the head of the International Monetary Fund(IMF) doesn't share all of President Obama's optimism about the world economy.

According to an Article on BBC News, the head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, says the recovery is iffy:

"We have to very cautious because this recovery remains very fragile,"

While he claims that the Government Stimulus packages right now are necessary, countries should be ready to tackle the high debt being incurred:

"He added that tackling high levels of government debt will be a priority for many governments. "

Translation, more Tax and Spend is in our future.

The President is Worried About the Election in Massachusetts

Here is an E-mail from the President's organization, Organizing for America, that shows just how worried they really are about Brown winning the election in Massachusetts:

There's a crucial Senate election in Massachusetts in just three days. We need your help to win it.

The polls are tightening as right-wing money floods the state, and one even shows the race to be a dead heat between progressive champion Martha Coakley and her extreme opponent. The truth is, special elections often have very low turnout and are notoriously unpredictable.

The stakes are just too high to leave Martha's victory to chance.

If we lose, Sen. Ted Kennedy's seat will be in the hands of someone who opposes everything he fought for. We'll lose a key vote for the President's agenda in the Senate -- and put all the progress we've made toward health reform at risk.

That's why OFA is putting together a massive voter turnout effort to make sure Obama voters get back to the polls this time around -- but we need your help to pay for it. Please donate $5 or more to OFA to help fund our organizing, including our work to elect Martha Coakley.

OFA is going all out in Massachusetts -- we're sending organizers, knocking on doors, and making phone calls by the tens of thousands to make sure that folks know how to participate.

It's a huge effort, it's expensive, and time is short. But with the outcome uncertain and the stakes sky high, I don't want to wake up the morning after the election thinking that we could have done something more.

Missouri State Congressional Staffers Mock Tea Party Speaker

While I was recording the Missouri State Sovereignty Rally in Jefferson City from the 2nd Floor Balcony, a Couple of Well Dressed State Congressional Staffers decided to Stand to the Right of my video camera. This is what I recorded:




.

Obama's Regualtor Czar, Cass Sunstein, Said that the Government Should Ban "Conspiracy Theorizing"

According to an Article on the World Net Daily, Obama's Regulator Czar wrote an academic paper that claimed the Government should ban Conspiracy Theorizing and Infiltrate Conspiracy Groups.

Here is apart of the Article:

"In a lengthy academic paper, President Obama's regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, argued the U.S. government should ban "conspiracy theorizing."

Among the beliefs Sunstein would ban is advocating that the theory of global warming is a deliberate fraud.

Sunstein also recommended the government send agents to infiltrate "extremists who supply conspiracy theories" to disrupt the efforts of the "extremists" to propagate their theories.

In a 2008 Harvard law paper, "Conspiracy Theories," Sunstein and co-author Adrian Vermeule, a Harvard law professor, ask, "What can government do about conspiracy theories?"

"We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories."

In the 30-page paper – obtained and reviewed by WND – Sunstein argues the best government response to "conspiracy theories" is "cognitive infiltration of extremist groups."

What makes this a dangerous belief is that Sunstein defines a "Conspiracy" as:

"an effort to explain some event or practice by reference to the machinations of powerful people, who have also managed to conceal their role."

That definition could describe every single Tyrannical Behavior by Dictators through History.

So according to Cass Sunstein, if he lived during WWII, talk about Germans Killing the Jews in Concentration camps would be banned by the U.S. Government. Because until the First camp was liberated in Europe, there was no Definite Proof of their existence, only rumors and first hand accounts of Jews who escaped Hitler's Europe.

Watergate would have never been uncovered under the Rules suggested by Cass Sunstein. Because until the Proof found in 1974, there was nothing but rumors and Conspiracy Theories for almost 2 Years. Nixon would have never been ousted because it would have been illegal to even discuss even the possibility of Nixon's Illegal Activity.

This just emphasises why the founding fathers went through great pains to point out the importance of Free Speech.

Because if we the people can no longer discuss "theories" Conspiracy or not, then the Governments of the world will have a Free hand to do what they what, to who they want.

Video from the Missouri Sovereignty Rally

Here is some Video from the Missouri Sovereignty Rally. I was impressed with the number of Politicians that claimed they backed the Sovereignty Bill.

We'll see how many stick to their Guns.

I will have more Video over the next several days.



Big Government In Action: British Government to Double the Price of Alcohol to Stop Binge Drinking

It seems that the British Government is going to try their hand at a Form of blatant Behavioral Economics.

How?

By forcing up the Price of Alcohol to "encourage" their citizens to stop binge drinking.

According to an Article in the Telegraph, this idea would set a "minimum Price" for all alcohol:

"The controversial “price-fixing” scheme is an attempt to stop the sale of beer, wine and spirits at discounted prices, which is blamed for encouraging excessive drinking.

The cost of the cheapest alcoholic drinks sold by supermarkets could more than double. It will also apply to pubs, clubs and other licensed premises but the impact is likely to be less marked for their customers as alcohol prices are already higher.

The scheme could see the starting cost of drinks fixed at between 40p and 50p per alcoholic unit – leading to a six-pack of lager costing about £6 and a bottle of wine costing £4.50. Cheap bottles of cider could quadruple in price.


It is understood that ministers are working on a “staged process” to introduce minimum pricing. Initially, the drinks industry will have to increase warnings on alcohol cans and bottles. Supermarkets and other retailers will then be banned from selling alcohol at “below cost” – the wholesale price of drinks – if they refuse to do so voluntarily."

This is a Prime example of Progressives thinking that the normal citizen is too dumb to think for themselves. Therefore they need to protect you from your self.

That is exactly why New York has banned Trans fats and is looking to control Salt in Food now.

Progressives think that they know better than you which is why they advocate for Big Government in order to force you to live their way....for your own good.

SEIU's Justice for All Plan is the Same as Obama's Agenda

Here is an Article I wrote yesterday for Purple People Beaters.com. It points out the Fact that SEIU's President, Andy Stern's "Justice for All" Plan is the exact same as President Obama's Agenda.

Here is the Article:

SEIU’s “Justice For All” plan is President Obama’s Agenda


Ever since President Obama was elected to Office, it seems like he has been Running Full steam to pass Government Run Health care, Card Check, Bank reform and Legalizing Illegals with blanket Amnesty.

Many people I know have continually asked, How is he doing this? President Obama can’t possibly be writing these Bills and forming this Agenda on his own.

I have discovered that President Obama didn’t come up with his agenda on his own, nor dictate the pace in which to force it through Congress. Andy Stern and SEIU did.

The Reason why Andy Stern and SEIU Secretary Treasurer are the most frequent Visitors to the White House with at Least 60 visits in the past year is that SEIU and President Obama teamed up to execute Andy Stern’s Justice For All Plan.

In 2008, before the SEIU convention in Puerto Rico, Andy Stern released this Video explaining to his members, why he thinks they should adopt his New Plan, Justice for All:





As you heard, Andy Stern wanted Health Care and Card Check passed in President Obama’s first hundred days. Which more than explains President Obama’s constant push to get things done under that time frame.

Andy Stern also claims that all of the agenda for the Justice For all Plan will be accomplished in 4 Years.

Which is another Good reason why No Health Care Bill must be allowed to pass in any from.

Which also explains why Andy Stern feels it’s appropriate to write Op eds threatening the President and Congress to Do what he says or else. Andy Stern saved 10 million Dollars to use in case politicians “Choose to Defy them(SEIU)” . I wonder how much of that money he is using to fight President Obama, since he is choosing to not only Defy SEIU’s wishes on the Health Care( At least on the Surface), but is way behind Andy Stern’s Schedule in implementing his plan.

Here is a video of Andy Stern ending the 2008 SEIU convention where he Pledges that If SEIU adopts his Justice for All plan, that the U.S. will Proudly Join Our Canadian Brothers and Sisters to be a Nation that guarantees affordable health Care for every man, woman and child. Closer to the End of the Speech he also refers to SEIU “Joining Forces with Candidate Obama and wrote a new Chapter of History”:




So what is the “Justice for All” Plan?
Well according to SEIU’s 2008 Annual report Justice for All is:

"an organizing and political plan with the goal of restoring balance in our society between people who work and people with wealth. By adopting the Justice for All platform, we committed ourselves to:

Electing Pro worker candidates at all levels of Government.

Holding candidates accountable once they Took office.

Building our Strength by uniting at least a half a million more workers over the next four years."



Now you know why the Obama administration has been going after Banks and CEO Bonuses. It is a goal of the Justice for All Plan to “balance our Society between people who work and people with wealth”.

Also according to the SEIU report, the first goal of the Plan has already been accomplished, electing Pro-labor Politicians to office, like Barack Obama.

Oddly enough it is very difficult to find anything on SEIU’s website about “Justice for All”. That is because after the Election, it was given a New Name, Change that Works:

"In the 2008 election, Americans spoke powerfully for change, and now they expect action. By Adopting the Justice For All Platform, SEIU Members made a commitment like never before to work for Change after the election, Change that Works.

Immediately following the election, We launched the Change that Works Campaign to help President Obama and the New Congress:

Pass an economic recovery Plan to keep people working, create millions of new jobs and maintain services in our Communities.

Pass the Employee Free Choice Act to ensure that workers can benefit from the economic progress they created.

Reform our health care system to provide quality, affordable health care for all."

So now we know the Playbook that President Obama appears to have been running with up till now. But as the Obama Administration fails to live up to the Promise to Andy Stern and his Justice for All Plan. I expect to see more Op eds written by Andy Stern threatening Politicians and “Holding them accountable” to their Promise of…

Justice for All....

Government Run GM Tells Tiger Woods They Want Their Cars Back

According to an Article in the BBC, Government Run General Motors is asking Tiger Woods for their Cars back.

It seems that Tiger had an Endorsement with GM that allowed him to use some of GM's cars on Loan Free basis. That Endorsement ended in 2008 but was unofficially extended through 2009.

GM claims that they only want their cars back because the agreement has expired on December 31st. But the BBC seems to think that this has more to do with Tiger's tarnished Image than some expired Contract.

I would tend to agree..

AFL-CIO President Says It's Time to Create an Economy "Where Wealth is Fairly Shared"

Yesterday Richard Trumka gave a Press Conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.

His speech was full of Marxist Remarks and Blame of Wall Street for the current Financial Crisis.

But one of the most obvious Marxist statements has gone unreported in the media. At one Point in Mr. Trumka's speech, he expresses his idea for "Spreading the Wealth" as a part of his plan for building the "New Economy":

"Working people want an American economy that works for them-that creates good jobs, where wealth is fairly shared, and where the economic life of our nation is about solving problems like the threat of climate change rather than creating problems like the foreclosure crisis. We know that growing inequality undermines our ability to grow as a nation - by squandering the talents and the contributions of our people and consigning entire communities to stagnation and failure."

This Obvious reference to "Sharing the Wealth" and "inequality" are as Communist/Marxist as Karl Marx himself. But yet these remarks have been overlooked and gone unreported by all media that were in attendance.

But thanks to the Communist News, People's World, they posted the Entire speech on their website for me to read.

Gotta Love those Commies...

At the Rally a State Sovereignty Resolution will be revealed that will be introduced by State Representative Brian Nieves.

This Resolution is a precursor to a Bill that will be introduced by Rep Tim Jones that will change the Missouri State Constitution in order to protect Missouri Citizens and Businesses from the Mandate in the Federal Health Care "reform" Bill.

British Citizens Rebel Against Government Agency and Shovel the Street Themselves


Has anyone noticed that in the UK, where the Government is Far more Controlling that here in the U.S., that the citizens are beginning to Rebel.

Several Weeks ago someone Blew up a traffic cam and this week Citizens are ignoring Threats from a Government Agency and decided to Shovel their Street themselves:

"They had been told their local council couldn't help. So more than 100 snowed-in residents decided to take matters - or shovels - into their own hands.

Digging their way through three inches of ice and snow, they defied health and safety warnings to clear their street themselves.

The group of 120, ranging in age from three to 80, took just over an hour to clear 400 yards of Galt Road in Farlington, near Portsmouth, after the local council decided it was not a high priority.

The clearing was organised by Wing Commander Paddy O'Kennedy, 45, who dismissed warnings from the authorities that residents could be sued if someone slipped on a public path they had cleared themselves.


'I mean, there's health and safety and there's just plain old commonsense,' he said.

'It's 100 times safer out there now because we went out and did it ourselves. If the council don't like what I did in organising this then they can sue me.' "









It Seems Like those of us in the "Colonies" have a little something to learn from the Citizens of the "Mother Country".


Like how to Rebel....

UK's Government Health Care Service Ignores Elderly Couple to Death

It appears that the opponents of Government Health Care in the U.S. have yet another example of why Government Run Health Care, like UK's NHS, doesn't work.

According to an Article in the Daily Mail, an Elderly Couple in the UK needed help so bad that they went to no less that Three Government Agencies, including the Government Health Care Service NHS, but were ignored. As a matter of fact, they were ignored so much that later they were found dead in their home:

"Old, frail and struggling with the bitter weather, it was obvious that Jean and Derek Randall's lives were at risk.

As Mr Randall's health failed and he accepted he could no longer look after his wheelchair-bound wife, a neighbour and the couple's MP contacted social services, the NHS and even Age Concern in the search for a care home place. But, despite weeks of phone calls, no help was provided.

Last Thursday a concerned neighbour looked through the couple's letterbox and spotted 76-year-old Mr Randall lying dead in the hallway.

It is feared they could have been dead for five days. Police forced their way into the 'freezing cold' bungalow and found Mrs Randall, 79, dead in her bed with a small heater on.


Mr Randall probably passed away first. His wife then died because there was no one to feed her or bring her drinks.

Last night a neighbour declared: 'I believe they died because everyone who is supposed to care for the elderly in our society did not do it. Everyone passed the buck.'

The couple, who would have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in March, may have been dead for five days."

Yep, where do I sign up for some of that "Compassionate" Government Run Health Care?

Tax Crack Down in UK on "White Collar Workers", Soon to come to the U.S.?

According to an Article on the Telegraph.UK, the HM Revenue and Customs Inspectors(the UK version of the IRS) has began to target "White Collar" workers for Audits.

"HMRC inspectors have started the crackdown in a bid to tackle tax evasion, which loses the economy around £3billion a year.

Previously, the HMRC has focused on people in blue collar jobs, such as publicans and taxi drivers, when fighting tax evasion.

However, it emerged yesterday that they are now focusing their attentions on the accounts of white collar professionals earning more than £100,000. Tens of thousands of professionals are set to be targeted.

Experts were surprised at the nature of the middle-class clampdown, with the Governments tax inspectors accused of unfairly targeting middle class professionals as “easy pickings”.

They suggested that chasing middle-class professionals for unpaid taxes had been forced on HMRC by the Treasury, which is desperate to raise funds to reduce the national debt."

As the U.S. Congress continues to spend money we don't have, I expect a similar crackdown to happen here in the United States.

Because the Government is going to need every single penny in order to try and pay for this "Deficit Neutral" Health Care Bill. It's so Deficit Neutral that they are going to be taxing you 4 years before you can even think about getting any services.

But the only group of Americans that will not be a Target for the IRS will be the Politicians...

Russian News Says: U.S. Recession is Over, Now Begins the Depression

I t appears that it is not only Americans that think the Obama Administraion is not handling the economic Crisis well. Actually some of us Americans think that the Adminsitration is purposly making it worse.

But none the less, the Russian News Source, Pravada thinks that the U.S. Recession is over and that the Depression is just beginning.

Here is apart of the Article:

"In late 2009, former Merrill Lynch economist, now with the Canadian firm, Gluskin Sheff, said the following:

The credit collapse and the accompanying deflation and overcapacity are going to drive the economy and financial markets in 2010. We have said this repeatedly that this recession is really a depression because the (post-WW II) recessions were merely small backward steps in an inventory cycle but in the context of expanding credit. Whereas now, we are in a prolonged period of credit contraction, especially as it relates to households and small businesses."

Summarizing his 2010 outlook, Rosenberg highlighted asset deflation and credit contraction imploding "the largest balance sheet in the world - the US household sector" in the amount of "an epic $12 trillion of lost net worth, a degree of trauma we have never seen before," even after the equity bear market rally and "tenuous" housing recovery likely to be short-lived and illusory with a true bottom many months away.

As a result, consumer spending will be severely impacted. "Frugality is the new fashion and likely to stay that way for years," highlighting a secular shift toward prudence and conservatism because households are traumatized, tapped out, and mindful of a bleak outlook. It shows in new consumer credit data, contracting $17.5 billion in November, the largest monthly amount since 1943 record keeping began.

Surprisingly, only people over age 55 have experienced job growth. All others have lost jobs, can't get them, and for youths the "unemployment crisis (is) of epic proportions." In addition, there's a record number of Americans out of work for longer than six months, in part because the "aging but not aged" aren't retiring, and those who did are coming back, of necessity, to make up for wealth lost.

Rosenberg stresses that for a sustainable recovery to begin, the ratio of household credit to personal disposable income must revert to the mean and reach an excess in the opposite direction. In the 1950s, it was 30%. Today its 125%, down from the late 2007 139% peak, with a long way to go taking years, and when it's over, another $7 trillion in household credit will have to be extinguished.

Until he retired in 1992, Robert Farrell was a highly respected Merrill Lynch market strategist and theorist, best remembered for his "10 Market Rules to Remember." Number one was that "markets tend to return to the mean over time." Number two was that "excesses in one direction will lead to an opposite excess in the other direction," and number nine was that "when all the experts and forecasts agree -- something else is going to happen."

Underwear Bomber Pleads Not Guilty

This is why we Do Not put Terrorists into the Court System. A Lawyer just convinced the Underwear Bomber to plead not Guilty.

According to an Article in the BBC, Mr Abdulmutallab, who is charged with attempted Murder of 290 People has just plead Not Guilty in a Detroit court today:


"Mr Abdulmutallab, wearing leg shackles, walked slowly into the court room.
He confirmed his name and its spelling, as well as his age in a soft voice, prompting the judge to ask him to speak up.

Without warning, and five minutes before the case was due to start, there he was. The man who faces six charges, including attempting to blow up a plane and kill the 289 other passengers and crew on 253 to Detroit on Christmas Day, hobbled in perhaps because of the injuries sustained or the leg irons he was wearing.


A short young man, he sat in a chair and for several moments listened and nodded to his lawyers.

He looked up slowly, his eyes staring with a slightly vacant look at the court. His shoulders were hunched.

Asked if he had had time to read the indictment, he answered "yes". He also confirmed he understood the charges.

Asked if he had taken any drugs in the previous 24 hours, he said he had taken some pain killers.
Mr Abdulmutallab was treated for burns after his arrest at Detroit airport after he allegedly tried to detonate a device concealed in his underwear on Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit.


The plane landed safely after passengers and crew overpowered him.
He faces life imprisonment if found guilty."


What in the Hell is going to be his defense??

That he was just Trying to light his Farts??
