To My Kids Who Want To Put Me Away

Well Kids, here is another article from your crazy old man who you believe belongs in a home for thinking and blogging the way he does. Regardless of what you say or think of me, I will not sit still and watch a carpet-bagger wise guy take our great country away from you. For me it doesn’t make much difference any more. Your mom is gone, and I am nearing the end of my time with you. I won’t lose much, but you will become a slave to the government. If you go on welfare which I don’t think any of you will ever do, you will stay in the workforce. You will be one of the few who work for the élite bastards in charge, and all those who feed from their trough. You won’t call it slavery, but you will call it taxery.
Your Mom and I hoped we raised you to want a life that is better than what we gave you. I see you struggling to make ends meet, and how hard you work to live an independent life. I commend you for that, I am proud of that. I also know that you can read, so I ask that you read this essay by another crack-pot like your old man. Wayne Allen Root has written an excellent essay explaining what is really going on. I wrote about the Cloward-Piven strategy back in 2009 shortly after Obama took charge. Back then you all thought I was a racist old man, but I hope by now you are learning that maybe I was just a wee bit right.
ATT00002
by Wayne Allyn Root
Barack Hussein Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. On the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within. Barack Hussein Obama was my college classmate (Columbia University, class of ’83).
He is a devout Muslim; do not be fooled. Look at his czars… Anti-business anti-American. As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Barack Hussein Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University.  They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands.
Add up the clues below. Taken individually, they’re alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a Socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival.  And can be counted on to always vote for even bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
Universal Health Care:
The Health Care bill has very little to do with healthcare. It has everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and healthcare workers as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn’t care that giving free healthcare to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?
Cap and Trade:
Like healthcare legislation having nothing to do with healthcare, Cap and Trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy, and a criminal payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama spread the wealth around.
                                                           Making Puerto Rico a state:
Who’s asking for a 51st state? Who’s asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers! But this has been Barack Hussein Obama’s plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressmen and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
(This will tip the balance of those living off the government to more than those who must pay for it; and we’re done for.)
Legalize 12 million illegal Mexican immigrants:
Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free healthcare alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security. (see note above re: Puerto Rico)
Stimulus and bailouts
Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions — including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues).
All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful.
The ends justify the means. Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama).
Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Barack Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition. With the acts outlined above, Barack Hussein Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.
Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Hussein Obama using the Cloward-Piven Strategy.
Last point: think about what this designed rule of the rabble will do to anyone successful and everyone receiving this is. What will your lives be like under Communism? The time to fight this abomination is now.

 

People With A Mind Can Discern For Themselves

My favorite columnist Thomas Sowell has posted an excellent essay titled “Who Shut Down The Government?” 

Sowell  doesn’t really answer the question directly, but he does lay out the facts about what Congress can and cannot do. Most people with a mind will be able to discern for themselves what the answer is. I tried to re-blog the essay here but could not, and I didn’t want to steal it with a cut and paste so I have to ask you to click on the link and read the article.

http://townhall.com/columnists/thomassowell/2013/10/04/who-shut-down-the-government-n1716292/page/full

Sowell rightly points out that the Democrat complaint that Congress should pass a “clean” bill somehow implies that Congress is putting something dirty in front of the Senate. Americans complain that Congress is not doing its job. Congress has very low poll ratings. I support that Congress is doing its job per the Constitutional mandate. The mis-interpretation comes from the Constitutional Lecturer-in-Chief himself.

What scares the hell out of me is how stupidly people buy into the lies being told to convince the them of the wonders of the Affordable Care Act.

Ley me know what you think. Who is responsible?

The Insanity of Passing a Bill To Know What Is In It

In March of 2010,  Democrat Representative Nancy Pelosi from California said this; “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Here we are four years later after stupidly passing the bill, and we still don’t really know what is in it.

I have a few criticisms of the Affordable Care Act bill. First is the lack of leadership displayed by the President to implement the Bill. As Chief Engineer for a major private sector company for over thirty years it was my responsibility to carry out many high dollar projects. I know the value of a good project manager. Obama does not have one. By the way, who is responsible for implementing the new health care system? It took us ten years to put a man on the moon, and we started way behind the point of where the health care system is today. In my mind the ACA project manager is a complete and total failure, as is his boss. The best I could find on the PM is the CHS is responsible for hiring Project Managers to implement exchanges. After three years and six months don’t you think there would be someone in charge who knows what the heck is going on?

A second criticism I have of the ACA is the level of taxing that has gone on since its inception. By now there is enough money in the coffers to pay off the sixteen trillion-dollar national debt. My guess is the ACA till is empty. No liberal in his right mind will allow money to accumulate for anything. Money is for spending which Democrats do very well.

The third problem I have with this bill is the way the Senate changed the rules to pass it. Shouldn’t a bill of such major consequences would need a two-thirds majority vote to pass?

100326--Taxery0014

Yesterday, after the Senate again pulled a sneaky maneuver called cloture to allow members to vote for defunding Obama Care. Actually, all they voted for was to end the debate and to take a vote. The vote to defund Obama Care won, but it isn’t really a bill. Within five minutes, The Majority Leader stripped the defund Obama Care language from the draft and they voted again to keep the government running and to fund Obama Care. This time the bill passed. Do you see the irony in this trick? Pass a cloture that says defund Obama Care. This gives a Senator a cover to brag to constituents that he voted to defund Obama Care. Yet, not ten minutes later the same bastard votes to fund Obama Care. The vote he will use to campaign on is the cloture vote. He will never mention his vote on the actual bill to defund ACA.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

cloture |ˈklōCHər|

noun

(in a legislative assembly) a procedure for ending a debate and taking a vote: [ as modifier ] : a cloture motion.

ORIGIN late 19th cent.: from French clôture, from Old Frenchclosure (see closure) .

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

After the vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a comment directed at me, and people like me.

“Obama Care has been the law for four years. Why don’t they get a life and talk about something else? Reid said at a press conference after the Senate passed a short-term resolution to fund the government and fund Obamacare.”

Well Harry, we are still trying to learn what the hell the ACA is. What little we do know is not very good. So far, we know it is destroying jobs, and killing the economy, which is just what smart Senators like you want American citizens to endure.  What we want is a complete repeal and a do over. Of course that will not satisfy the liberal mind. Liberals will insist that the mysterious ACA remain law until planet earth collides with the sun. ACA will become the same rock solid bureaucracy like the EPA, DHS, DEd, DAg, and the remaining useless agencies sucking money out of the few of us who still believe in working for a living. God forbid a Senator should recognize an error and make it right.

My conclusion is this: Democrats think the American people are a bunch of illiterate drooling nerds who need spoon feeding through the bars of their cages. What I think is that all Democrat Senators, Congressmen, and the Democrat President must be dumped into a vat of tar,  feathered, and made to kneel before the country and publicly apologize for being complete assholes.

Harry Reid, Obama, and Nancy would like to believe the Tea Party is dead. Currently, the Tea Party is quiet, but not dead despite Obama Administration efforts to block them.  The Tea Party grows in strength while strategizing the Conservative resurrection of America.

In conclusion, voting for a bill to learn what is in it does not border on insanity, it is insane. Since the liberals in government had such strong backing to make the ACA happen, I can only conclude that the liberal side of the country suffers from severe mental deficiency.

Will We Awaken to Find We Have Communism?

A billboard from the highways of America

Thank you, thank you, thank you Dorothy. She has sent me stuff for years that is right on the money. This article below explains why the USA is at war; with itself. It pits Conservatives against Progressives. (Progressivism is a code word for Liberalism, Socialism, Communism)

This election will decide which direction toward which the country will move. It won’t decide the direction absolutely because the two factions will continue to labor toward their ideologies for many elections to come, but eventually, the stronger will prevail. This election, though is bringing us closer to a socialist state than any previous.

Nikita Khrushchev said:

We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.

Google this quote and you will find author David Emery make a detailed case trying to confuse who made the quote or if  someone said it at all. I remember reading the quote in the newspapers at the time of Khrushchev’s visit with President Eisenhower in the USA .  Somewhere during that trip Khrushchev said it.

What does this quote have to do with the article below?

In my opinion Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and many Democrats declare themselves Progressives. They are the ones who set the agenda for the downfall of the economy. Harry Reid continues to use delay tactics in the Senate to keep from passing budgets and the many laws passed by the House of Representatives. Why?

The article below is what Dorothy sent me, I checked it out and lifted it from SNOPES.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

<><><><><><><><<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><<><

The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007, which was the day the Democrats took overthe House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the110th Congress.The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for thefirst time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacythat everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this: January 3rd, 2007was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.At the time:The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%The Unemployment rate was 4.6%George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOBGROWTHRemember the day…January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House

Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate

Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months

later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL

SERVICES!

Unemployment… to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping

5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie

Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in

2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie

Mac? OBAMA And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA

and the Democrat Congress.

So when someone tries to blame Bush. REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007….

THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and

the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat

Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 &

2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused

them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough

on spending increases.

For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush

entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running

until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a

massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that

very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he

signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the

last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five

years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After

that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that

includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a

nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted

for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since

January 20th.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.

I’m thinking this generation of elected leaders leap frogged the effort.

King-0’s Imperial Presidency

I drafted this cartoon in 2009 shortly after the election. At the time, I felt the country would see it as racist and they would not believe that an Imperial Presidency could take place. After all, we have a Constitution that defines the rules for electing our leaders. My son sent me the essay shown below. This piece is by Steve McCann. His bio on American Spectator defines him this way:

“Steve McCann is president of a company headquartered in London and the United States specializing in the financing of capital equipment and projects in Third World countries.”

King-0 Rules Over His Dominion

When I finished reading McCann’s essay I decided to release this cartoon. My picture totally defines the state of the country by 2016 if we allow Obama to steal a second term.

His article titled

“Obama’s Second Term Transformation Plans” first appeared in American Thinker on May 8, 2012, and many bloggers have re-posted it many times. I am offering McCann’s essay here because this message must get to as many people as possible between now and the election.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Obama’s Second Term Transformation Plans

The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860.This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind.

The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama’s first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of “transforming America ” in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.

The most significant accomplishment of Obama’s first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal

During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshipping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.

The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write.

For example, in the 2,700 pages of  Obama Care there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.” In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once Obama Care is fully operational in 2014.

The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation’s financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled Barack Obama and his radical associates.

Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others.

None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse unless stopped in its early stages.

It is clearly the mindset of this administration and its appointees that Congress is merely a nuisance and can be ignored after they were able to take full advantage of the useful idiots in the Democrat controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010 and the Democrat Senate in the current Congress.

Additionally, Barack Obama knows after his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago style political tactics.

The stalemate between the Executive and Legislative Branches will inure to the benefit of Barack Obama and his fellow leftists.

The most significant power Congress has is the control of the purse-strings as all spending must be approved by them. However, once re-elected, Barack Obama, as confirmed by his willingness to do or say anything and his unscrupulous re-election tactics, would not only threaten government shutdowns but would deliberately withhold payments to those dependent on government support as a means of intimidating and forcing a Republican controlled Congress to surrender to his demands, thus neutering their ability to control the administration through spending constraints.

Further, this administration has shown contempt for the courts by ignoring various court orders, e.g. the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium, as well as stonewalling subpoenas and requests issued by Congress. The Eric Holder Justice Department has become the epitome of corruption as part of the most dishonest and deceitful administration in American history. In a second term the arrogance of Barack Obama and his minions will become more blatant as he will not have to be concerned with re-election.

Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.

Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated. The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted.

The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity would assume the reins of power. However, knowing that was not always possible, they dispersed power over three distinct and independent branches as a check on each other.

What they could not imagine is the surrender and abdication of its constitutional duty by the preeminent governmental branch, the Congress, to a chief executive devoid of any character or integrity coupled with a judiciary essentially powerless to enforce the law when the chief executive ignores them

Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney must come to grips with this moment in time and their historical role in denying Barack Obama and his minions their ultimate goal. All resources must be directed at that end-game and not merely controlling Congress and the various committee chairmanships.
