Let’s Protect the First Amendment

Some time ago I wrote about a new position at the FCC and how the person appointed to it intends to control what is allowed on the air waves. You can find it at The Latest Re-Distribution of Wealth Scheme on my blog.

That man is Mark Lloyd, chief diversity officer of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). In his book “Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America” (University of Illinois Press) published in 2006, Lloyd constantly refers to the socialist Saul Alinsky.

Alinsky (1909-1972) was a community organizer and activist from Chicago and the author of the book, Rules for Radicals, which opens with an acknowledgment "to the very first radical ... Lucifer." As for political tactics, Alinsky said, “The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away. In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people. This means revolution."

Lloyd like his hero Alinsky is for government control of all facets of our lives. “Citizen access to popular information has been undermined by bad political decisions,” Lloyd wrote in his book. “These decisions date back to the Jacksonian Democrats’ refusal to allow the Post Office to continue to operate the telegraph service.” This man is not interested in the unbiased distribution of information. He is a shrewd apparatchik planning to help establish a National Socialist style dictatorship in the US.

Ever since the take over of congress by the left, they have worked to create a socialist dictatorship. The Obama administration has set up a branch of the government that reports directly to the president to control the country. Congress under the leadership of Pelosi and Reid are working to implement laws to cement a form of government totally alien to our Constitution. Controlling the nation’s communications is the most important part of any attempt to control a nation. It allows the government to squelch any and all dissent or opposition to a totalitarian state. That is exactly what our leaders are working on.

The socialists infiltrated just about completely the education system in America. This system created a media that is lock step with the socialist movement. Now they are trying to wipeout the few remnants of independent thought. We are at the crossroads of America’s destiny. Freedom loving Americans must stand together and appose this attack on our liberties. Send emails, letters, faxes, and make phone calls to congress demanding the government keeps its hand off the airwaves.

The Best Healthcare System is Being Maligned and Ripped Off

Of all the questions over ObamaCare that have been brought up, it seems that we all have missed one big point. The only reform that is really needed in America’s health care system is to stop the fleecing of America by illegal trespassers. If America did not have to spend the billions of dollars on the world’s bloodsuckers, legal residents would have better and more access to our health care system.

Oh, first let me clear up some phony statistics. The UN has put America towards the top of infant mortality. The one thing they failed to point out is how the US and the rest of the world counts infant mortality. In America every birth that results in mortality is counted, including, I believe, stillbirths. Most other countries only count live births. Some countries, the only ones they count are those who have died several months after being born.

Considering that most infant mortality is at birth, or shortly there after, other countries do not report most infant deaths. Seems a bit unfair, no? But then again what is new about that? The UN is full of our enemies. So are so many in the Obama administration and congress under the leadership of Pelosi and Reid. But that, is a topic for an other article. For now, my point is that our healthcare system is the finest and most advanced in the world. If it wasn’t why are so many coming here to be cured, including some of our worst enemies? They do not go to Cuba, Russia, or even Canada, they come here.

California hospitals experienced 85 closures in the last decade. An additional 55 facilities have shut down ERs, all due to having to provide free care to illegals. The state ranks last in the country in access to emergency care and last in ERs per capita, making it woefully unprepared to respond to a major earthquake or terror attack.

Some 80% of the births at Houston's Ben Taub General Hospital and Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital are to illegal immigrants. In Fort Worth, it's about 70%.

The South Texas Health System eats $140 million a year in free care, and 60%-70% of those unpaid costs are in the ER.

Some 40% of the babies born at McAllen Medical last year were to illegals. That's nearly 2,400 babies who were given instant citizenship. Their mothers instantly qualified for U.S. welfare. Many of them, McAllen Medical CEO Joe Riley says, were "mothers about to give birth that walk up to the hospital still wet from swimming across the river and in actual labor."

One hospital near Miami was forced to eat $1.5 million in unreimbursed care for an illegal alien from Guatemala. After three years of treatment, Martin Memorial Medical Center paid $30,000 to charter a jet to take Luis Jimenez to a medical facility in his home country. His family in turn sued the hospital.

When you consider that they wire an average of $300 a month in remittances back to Mexico, that money could go a long way toward purchasing medical insurance.

These all show the mass fraud perpetrated on American citizens. A fraud that will only be increased with ObamaCare.

Just like with abortion, free medical care to illegals is not specifically written in any of the forms ObamaCare now under consideration by congress, but it is not excluded. As long as the illegal issue is not directly addressed, we will be forced to pay for these people while our own citizens are left wanting and suffering.

Additionally, it is just not the sniffles that these people are treated for. A town of 3,500 people in Texas had to pay almost $200,000.00 for a complicated delivery by an illegal.

A woman had ten children delivered at the expense California’s citizens. One child with major complications has been in and out of the hospital for the past ten years, all paid for by taxes. These costs are astronomical. Her and her whole extended family has been on welfare for over 15 years, all getting free medical care.

In my dreams I hear
The roar and screams of battle
In my dreams
I hear a brave soldiers lone death rattle
In my dreams I hear
The sound of scared men praying
In my dreams
I hear Taps a-sadly playing
In my dreams I hear
The Minute Men a-callin'
In my dreams I hear
The millions who have fallen
In my dreams I hear
The whispers in the night
Your freedom is a precious thing
So don't give up the fight
In my dreams the soldiers speak
Of lives they gave for me
In my dreams
I thank them for
The gift of being free
In my dreams I hear the words
A lonely plaintive sound
In my dreams I whisper back
I will not let you down

Redistributing our Wealth to the World

The echoes inside our treasury are deafening. The US is trillions of dollars in the red and we are sending money to Brazil while our economy languishes, people are losing jobs, businesses are closing down, and states cannot provide essential services. Obama’s administration along with congress led by Pelosi and Reid are propping up socialist regimes in South America. $10 billion was “lent” to a Brazil government owned Oil Company (an OPEC member). NY’s shale oil deposits can produce enough oil to supply all of America for 60 years. There are bigger deposits within this country but Obama, Pelosi, and Reid wants it to stay in the ground.

Three years ago, I was paying around $1.00/gallon of gas. Last year the price was heading to $5.00/gallon. The US is still at the mercy of the Oil Cartels and who knows how much they will squeeze us in the future. The Obama gang is doing all they can to put more power in their grasp.

Our current leadership in Washington is reducing our quality of life in every way possible. They are redistributing our future wealth to other countries rather then expanding our own economy. Not only is this administration trying to redistribute wealth in our country but also it is redistributing it to the world. These are not the acts of American patriots. These acts are of those who wish to destroy our way of life.

If we allow the current elected officials in Washington to stay in power, they will reduce America to impotent third world country. They must all, be replaced. We need to vet new candidates and work ever so hard to elect the right ones. Work with your local precinct leaders; man the phone banks and walk the precincts in support of the right candidates.

One of the things that made America different

Posted with permission of author Robert A. Gismondi

One of the things that made America different from all other nations is that a large percentage of Americans are either descended from those who came here for freedom and self-determination, or are immigrants themselves. We are not a conquered people, whose provinces are the result of border drawing by meddling officials as part of the Treaty of Versailles, or other treaties, dividing and re-dividing Europe into Kingdoms, Principalities, constitutional monarchies, or even Republics.

Americans wrested this land away from imperious Europeans, and owe neither fealty nor reverence for those whose rulers have been pre-determined, time and time again.

So, when committees start deciding how many "quality-adjusted life years" we have left, some of the patriots are going to begin considering how many "quality-adjusted life years" the bureaucrats have left, and conclude it is NONE. There will be blood in the streets; but, it will reduce the load on the healthcare system. Who is to say it is not in the spirit of the goals of the central planners?

We may just decide we do not need quite so many of them. And, I think we will, if it comes to pass.

This is not Europe. We shall not submit to barbarian hordes. That is something for the forces of evil to contemplate. But, hubris knows no bounds; and the obvious is often made manifest, throughout history, only with blood-letting. I do not expect it to come to that; but, if events unfold to our detriment, I believe that will be the final chapter.

The Latest Re-Distribution of Wealth Scheme

There is a new position at the FCC. It has been filled by a man who has a plan to really kill free speech radio. His plan is to force private radio stations to pay the FCC an equal amount of their total operating costs. This means that private radio stations with highly paid hosts, such as Rush, Sean, and others, will have to pay the FCC the same amount they them plus all other costs.

This money is to fund “public radio stations” that will spew the leftist points of view. If these private radio stations do not pay this “fee”, they could lose their license to operate. Then the FCC can give that license to whom ever.

This is outrageous. It ‘is the same as if the labor or commerce department demanded Ford Motor Company to pay a fee equal to Ford's costs to manufacture cars so that the government could fund a competing car company.

This bears watching very closely. It is a dangerous attempt to control more of the radio waves and just one major step towards a socialistic dictatorship. If this happens we will not hear points of view such as Mark Levin’s, Rush’s or other’s.

To save our freedom of choice and protect liberties that have been secured by the founders of this once great country, we must act to replace the make up of the administration and congress. Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country. Get busy and save our country. Investigate and vet new candidates and then work to elect the right ones

1930's Germany and 2009 America

Is there a parallel between 1930’s Hitler regime and our present administration? Well lets take a look at this.

In the 1930’s Hitler blamed all the woes of the German people on the “rich Jewish bankers and business men”.
In 2009 Obama blamed the woes of Americans on the “rich greedy (republicans) running businesses and financial institutions”.

In the 1930’s Hitler took control of Germany’s financial institutions.
In 2009, Obama took control of American’s financial institutions.

In the 1930’s Hitler took over the industrial complex of Germany.
In 2009, Obama took control of 2/3 of America’s largest industry there by controlling many more businesses (manufacturer supplies, third party product suppliers, auto services, etc).

In addition to the incarcerating the Jews, Hitler began rounding up those that did not agree with him (my relatives ended up in concentration camps) and also those that just did not want to go along with his master plan (my dad was rescued from the Gestapo by his college friend who was a “fifth column” guy in the SS”.

Now Obama is asking his supporters to report dissidence to his programs, is starting a National Civilian Security Force (he does not call it that anymore), setting up Homeland Security detention centers at military posts across the nation, and his cohort Pelosi is calling dissidents “unpatriotic”.

In the 1930’s Hitler controlled every aspect of every German and most other European citizen’s life.
Now Obama is trying to implement egregious taxation on us with the cap and trade scheme to make us poor and control who lives or dies with his ObamaCare.

Hitler ran out of money so he printed and printed it until the German people needed a sack full of it to buy groceries.
Obama and his gang in congress have spent more money then the US has so he is printing money hand over fist.

Hitler made an alliance with Islamists to wipe out the Jews of Europe.
Obama is reaching out to Islamic organizations and Nations whose aim it is to destroy the only Jewish state.

See the similarity here?

Obama the Distributer

Posted with permission of Author; Robert Gismondi

What Obama proposes for health insurance and care (in essence) is that people who own homes with sagging back doors turn over the houses to the federal government, which will knock down the houses, and build new ones, smaller, greener, and uglier, with nice new back doors, and tax you for it, directly and indirectly, so he can use the extra tax money to build the same houses for illegal aliens and people on welfare.

Moreover, if you do not pay what he regards as your fair share, he will have access to your bank account, and will merely have it debited! That is what he calls "fixing" a "broken" system.

This is what you get from a charismatic politician whose studies at two elite universities, and one left wing college, prepared him to create nothing of value, but convinced him that taking from the hard workers, and re-distributing to the less productive, is "fair.” Of course, in implementing such fairness, his cronies and supporters, and minions, will have access to an enormous number of government and government-supported jobs, all to administer, study, audit, and oversea the fairness in stealing from the productive to re-distribute to those who are not entitled to it.

In addition, notice that with higher taxes, fewer deductions for charitable giving, and interfering with "Cars for Kids" and similar programs through unfair "Cash for Clunkers," and other programs, he is destroying private charity, and creating more "Pauls.” (When you rob Peter, to pay Paul, you get no argument from Paul.)

Now there is a shortage of used cars Obama calls clunkers. Folks of limited means will have to pay more for a clunker, as, so far, about a quarter million have been summarily scrapped, and the parts destroyed.

This is creating jobs. What happened to the method we used for a couple of hundred years without an Obama in sight? It was called a market economy. As soon as Obama lets people know that government interference is stopping, and lowers taxes, people will spend, business will expand, people will be hired, and we will thrive. It worked for over two hundred years; and, no other system has ever worked as well.
Is there anyone out there who still thinks that Obama believes in a market (free enterprise) economy? If so, please email me. I have an excellent investment in a high traffic bridge available.

This article published with permission form the auther Shari Goodman

The alarm clock (made in China because our cost of labor and services set by union apparachiks are cost prohibitive) goes off at 6:00. Joe Shmow hops out of bed, dresses in a suit made in Taiwan (cheap labor), and runs downstairs to get his first cup of coffee from a coffeemaker (you guessed it) made in China. He gulps down his drink and runs out the door to his waiting automobile (made in Japan) thanks once again to America's socialist unions.
This morning, Joe decides to take the side streets to work (freeways have become parking lots in Los Angeles thanks to socialist unions, whose open border policy promises to fill their coffers with more dues). The once paved and functioning roads he now travels are full of pot holes, thanks to the (socialist city council whose unfriendly business climate forced businesses to flee the city; thus, decreasing our city revenues.) As he drives down the street attempting to avoid the many pot holes, he can't help but notice the litter strewed at every corner. It is beginning to look a lot like a Third World city, and what was once a clean safe neighborhood has now become a safe haven for illegal criminals from south of the border. Thanks once again to the sanctuary city label bestowed upon us by our socialist city council.
Eventually Joe arrives at his workplace only to be told by his controller that he will have to lay off 10 of his employees. The increase in minimum wage, higher corporate taxes, and forced health care benefits for all has made it impossible for the company to turn a profit. To cut costs, he is now forced to lay off ten good men, thanks to our socialist city government at work. Joe becomes upset and begins to take his anger out at the workers. They in turn become upset and productivity and morale are at an all time low. After putting in a nearly 12 hour day, Joe arrives back home to be greeted by his lovely wife and 2 children in tow. He sits down with a drink in hand and a child on his lap, when he spots the big envelope from the County Tax Collector. Dreading what is inside, he slowly opens it. There inside and spelled out in plain black and white is the property increase tax he had been fearing. Disgusted that nearly half of his income is taken away from him by a government bent on redistributing it to the drug addicted woman who chose to drop out of school and proceed to give birth to 5 kids out of wedlock, he quickly gulps down his drink.
His lovely wife proceeds to tell him that Joey Jr. is not doing well in school. Joey Jr. and other students have complained about one particular teacher, but the principal refuses to fire her. The socialist union would be up in arms. No merit pay or school choice allowed. The private school just around the corner with high test scores and a curriculum that teaches the basics instead of indoctrinated political correctness would be ideal, but Joe Shmow's annual earnings have taken a dive due to increased regulations set forth by a socialist government who believes they know best how to spend Joe's money. Feeling now more dejected than ever, Joe decides to write a letter to his legislative representative, but he is reminded by his wife that since he lives in California where the legislature is primarily led by those on the Left, his attempt at change would be futile. So Joe like many before him has to make a choice. Should he stay in the Socialist Republic of California or should he seek greener pastures where the physical climate may not be as sunny, but the reception a whole lot warmer. He chooses with his feet as so many before him.

Desperate Need for Action

When the government distances it self from liberty loving people and begins to impose totalitarian rule that infringes on every aspect of their life, time has come for the people to stand as one and oppose this government. The people must choose new leaders who take the charge of being civil servants to heart and not a license to dominate our lives.

We must exercise our power of the vote now. For if we do not act and use the ballot those in power will achieve their goal of total control and the people will have to resort to other means to regain their God given right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It will be a tragedy of unimaginable proportions if we lose our only weapon, our vote. The stakes have never been higher. The future of liberty and freedom depends on what we do now. We must vet new candidates and work harder than we ever have before to elect the right candidates.

The Golden State is Leading the Nation in the Race to Poverty

California is leading the nation in killing jobs, forcing businesses to close, and generally reduce the standard of living for all Americans. In the past 3 of every 5 jobs in California jobs where manufacturing jobs. Now only one in ten is in manufacturing.

California has lost 20,000 jobs a year for the last five years. That is 100,000 people have lost their jobs. 100,000 people were put on the unemployment rolls. That means around five billion dollars evaporated from the California economy. That means California lost millions of dollars of income tax and sales tax revenue. Current policy of California has just put thousands of farm workers out of a job and is threatening bankruptcy to hundreds of California farmers.

Now the California Energy Commission (CEC) is proposing another job killing measure. They want to regulate the allowable electricity consumption of flat screen televisions. Will that force some residents of California to buy different TV sets? Perhaps some, but then we can get the TVs we want via internet. So what will this regulation accomplish? It will cost more Californians to lose their jobs. As one TV retailer stated, “Taking these highly popular TVs off the shelves would seriously hurt my business,” said Don Mueller, Owner of North Bay AVS Design in Santa Rosa. “I estimate that the CEC’s regulation would slash 15-20 percent of our sales. In light of today’s economic climate, we’d be forced to cut 15-20 percent of our labor to make up for the losses.”

If Obama wants to stagnate the economy, weaken America, and reduce our standard of living, he could not have picked a better model to do so. California is literally broke and is working for the further demise of a once vibrant economy. California used to be a magnet for people seeking a better life and an opportunity for budding entrepreneurs. California’s current trend is business have packed up and left or just closed down. Californians are seeking the better life else where leaving an out of work population that can not sustain the spending appetite of their leaders.

Our Chief Executive’s Priorities

On the day that BHO was presiding over a beer summit, the FBI arrested homegrown terrorists Daniel "Saifullah" Patrick Boyd and several other conspirators. These are people accused of training to kill and otherwise terrorize citizens in foreign countries.

Our chief executive can’t be bothered with matters of national security. Perhaps he considers that it would be meddling in things that are of no concern to him and that he should concentrate on important stuff. You know, important things like defending a racist professor’s tirade over a cop investigating a possible break-in at the professor’s house.

Islamic terrorists, homegrown or foreign, never seem to be on his radar. He made no comment to Americans about being vigilant of suspicious Jihadist activities. It is as if Islamic terrorists did not exist. But he did think that saying the cops acted stupidly in a situation he did not have all the facts, warrented his attention. Alternatively, perhaps it is because his true sympathies are with Islam and others who wish to harm America.

He, others in his administration, congressional leaders Pelosi and Reid, and their followers in Washington must be replaced before America becomes a Socialist Dictatorship. It is up to us to replace them with the right kind of candidates as soon as possible.
