The Imperial President

July 18, 2011 by  

The Imperial President

Having just shed the shackles of monarchy, the Founding Fathers were loath to establish a government with an all-powerful chief executive. To prevent it, they created a government divided into three equal branches. Their idea was that each branch would check the other in order to limit government’s growth.

But the anti-Federalist Cato, thought to be New York Governor George Clinton, warned in Letter V to the citizens of New York that the compact under consideration did not provide strong enough checks and balances. He wrote:

Before the existence of express political compacts it was reasonably implied that the magistrate should govern with wisdom and Justice, but mere implication was too feeble to restrain the unbridled ambition of a bad man, or afford security against negligence, cruelty, or any other defect of mind. It is alledged that the opinions and manners of the people of America, are capable to resist and prevent an extension of prerogative or oppression; but you must recollect that opinion and manners are mutable, and may not always be a permanent obstruction against the encroachments of government; that the progress of a commercial society begets luxury, the parent of inequality, the foe to virtue, and the enemy to restraint; and that ambition and voluptuousness aided by flattery, will teach magistrates, where limits are not explicitly fixed to have separate and distinct interests from the people, besides it will not be denied that government assimilates the manners and opinions of the community to it. Therefore, a general presumption that rulers will govern well is not a sufficient security. You are then under a sacred obligation to provide for the safety of your posterity, and would you now basely desert their interests, when by a small share of prudence you may transmit to them a beautiful political patrimony, that will prevent the necessity of their travelling through seas of blood to obtain that, which your wisdom might have secured: It is a duty you owe likewise to your own reputation, for you have a great name to lose; you are characterised as cautious, prudent and jealous in politics; whence is it therefore, that you are about to precipitate yourselves into a sea of uncertainty, and adopt a system so vague, and which has discarded so many of your valuable rights. Is it because you do not believe that an American can be a tyrant? If this be the case you rest on a weak basis; Americans are like other men in similar situations, when the manners and opinions of the community are changed by the causes I mentioned before, and your political compact inexplicit, your posterity will find that great power connected with ambition, luxury, and flattery, will as readily produce a Caesar, Caligula, Nero, and Domitian in America, as the same causes did in the Roman empire.

Sadly, it turns out he was correct. Congress has abdicated its responsibility, the Federal judiciary has become the oligarchy Thomas Jefferson warned about, and the result is we now have an imperial Presidency.

The imperial Presidency has its roots in 1861 and Abraham Lincoln, who had no regard for the Constitution and the rule of law.

The Southern States had every right to secede under the Constitution. In his inaugural address, President Thomas Jefferson said, “If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.”

As Judge Andrew P. Napolitano states in his book, The Constitution in Exile, in a later speech Jefferson, discussing the possibility of States seceding, said, “God bless them both and keep them in the union if it be for their good, but separate them if it be better.”

“Lincoln’s act of sending troops to Virginia triggered the armed conflict that became the Civil War,” Napolitano writes. “He did so under the premise that war was necessary to preserve the union. But the truth is that Lincoln had several other options to exhaust before resorting to warfare — and that’s only after we observe that the Southern states had the right to secede from the Union if they wished to do so.”

During the period from April 12, 1861 — when first engagement of the Civil War took place — until his death April 14, 1865, Lincoln ordered the murder of civilians, declared martial law, shut down convening State legislatures, arrested State politicians and journalists, closed newspapers, suspended habeas corpus, seized vast amounts of property without compensating the owners, imprisoned Northern citizens without trial, conducted a war without Congressional approval, ignored orders of the Supreme Court, consented in — and encouraged — the commission of war crimes by his generals, and oversaw the illegal creation of the State of West Virginia.

Even Lincoln historian apologists accuse Lincoln of being a dictator. They just seem to believe he was a “good” dictator because they support what he did during his dictatorship. But tyranny is tyranny.

“Lincoln took all of these actions in the name of preserving (emphasis in original) constitutional government. It’s hard to imagine something more tyrannical than a central government that suppresses life, speech, and political expression with such drastic measures,” Napolitano writes.

Lincoln’s actions effectively ended the prospect of nullification and gutted the 10th Amendment. And ever since Lincoln got away with trampling the Constitution, Presidents, Congresses and Federal judges have been writing laws and issuing edicts and orders in violation of the Constitution and its enumerated powers. In other words, they do what they want, ignoring the rule of law.

The three branches, envisioned by the Founders as a set of checks against one another, became partners in crime. They consolidated their power over those they governed and set about entrenching themselves and enriching themselves, their political parties and their cronies.

Following the events of 9/11, Congress granted President George W. Bush sweeping powers to make war on terrorists and imprison Americans without trail. Like Lincoln, Bush suspended habeas corpus. Congress also passed the liberty-crushing USA Patriot Act that gave law enforcement agencies broad powers to eavesdrop, search and surveil Americans.

As the economy crashed in 2008, Bush — under the guise of “saving” the economy — looted the Treasury to make sure his Treasury Secretary’s old firm, Goldman Sachs, made out like a bandit. It turns out all the big banksters, both domestic and foreign, got a slice of that pie. Congress helped and Judiciary sat on its hands and did nothing.

But as has been the case since his inauguration, whatever Bush did, Obama has doubled down. He has become the Imperial President.

Obama has appointed dozens of czars without the consent of Congress. These czars set policy for Obama’s regulatory agencies — the alphabet soup government agencies that create problems through regulation and then pass more regulations to solve the regulatory problems they created. These agencies are answerable to no one and nothing. Obama’s agenda of killing jobs, suppressing innovation and supporting unviable “green” technologies is their lone goal.

Sadly, not only does Congress not care, it is working posthaste to make it easier for the President to avoid Congress altogether. The Senate, by a roll call vote of 79-20, last week passed the President Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011. It’s set to go before the House soon. The bill’s aim is to eliminate Senate confirmation of 200 of the roughly 1,400 Presidential appointments that fall under Article II, Section 2, according to The Washington Examiner.

Then last week, Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) floated the harebrained notion to give the President the authority to raise the debt ceiling on his own.

So it’s not enough that the President just ignores Congress, Congress has decided it wants to give the President carte blanche to ignore it even further.

Meanwhile, Obama morphs into more of a Third World-style dictator every day. Recognizing that the Federal government was abdicating its responsibility to control the border and guarantee every State a republican form of government, Arizona passed a comprehensive immigration law that virtually mirrored Federal law. The Obama Administration sued Arizona.

As the Texas Legislature grew close to passing a law that would make it a crime for agents of the Transportation Security Administration to fondle airline passengers and ogle their naked photographs, the Obama inJustice Department threatened to establish a no-fly zone over the State. This is the same inJustice Department that ignored voter intimidation by members of the New Black Panthers Party at Pennsylvania polling stations during the 2008 elections — charges the accused didn’t even bother to contest.

Other States that have passed sovereignty laws on issues from medical marijuana to funding abortions to intrastate ammunition and gun sales — oops, there’s the fallout from the first tyrant President’s actions — have also faced lawsuit and intimidation at the hands of the Mafia-style Federal government.

Inexplicably, unions give unqualified support to Obama even as he kicks them in the teeth while playing the liberal class-warfare game. Yachts and airplanes are symbols of the rich to Obama, so he denounces yachts and airplanes and threatens to change the tax code so that the rich can’t buy new yachts and airplanes. Who makes yachts and airplanes? Laborers and craftsman — many of them union members — who will be out of work by the thousands when the rich stop buying yachts and airplanes. So, too, will the engineers, marketing people, accountants, secretaries and all the others who are part of that industry, as will those who work in ancillary industries.

Not content with kicking the yacht and airplane laborers and craftsmen to the curb, Obama also attacks the oil and coal industries. Already, he’s ignored a court order to approve Gulf drilling. So tens of thousands of oil workers remain idle, oil and gas prices rise and thousands upon thousands of people struggling to get by are forced to struggle even harder. His Environmental Protection Agency has announced new rules which will kill coal-mining jobs by the thousands.

But for Obama, that’s OK because Americans are stupid. We cling to our guns and religion, he says. His dismally dimwitted Presidential ventriloquist doll Jay Carney said in a recent press conference that to most Americans, the term debt ceiling “sounds like gobbledygook.”

In another press conference, Carney dismissed a poll of a majority of the public saying the debt limit shouldn’t be raised by arguing that most people “don’t have a lot of time to focus on what is a debt ceiling.” And then he took a swipe at the press corps: “I mean, honestly, did anyone in this room, before they had to cover issues like this, have any idea what a debt ceiling was?”

Obama political hack David Plouffe said: “The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers. People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’”

When confronted by a reporter with the poll numbers showing 69 percent of Americans oppose raising the debt limit, Obama responded: “Well, let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. The public is not paying close attention to the ins and outs of how a Treasury option goes. They shouldn’t. They’re worrying about their family; they’re worrying about their jobs; they’re worrying about their neighborhood. They’ve got a lot of other things on their plate. We’re paid to worry about it. I think, depending on how you phrase the question, if you said to the American people, is it a good idea for the United States not to pay its bills and potentially create another recession that could throw millions of more people out of work, I feel pretty confident I can get a majority on my side on that one.”

Since you’re not paying attention, Obama says you can just eat cake… or “peas.”

Ignoring the rule of law, Obama has — with Congressional complicity — turned the natural born citizen qualification for the President on its ear. He’s probably committed a felony or two by releasing a forged document that he claims is a birth certificate and by using a fraudulent Social Security number.

With a wink and a nod to Sarah Brady, Obama promised to work behind the scenes to pass stronger anti-gun legislation. He sat back while his appointee to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — and maybe even his Attorney General — pushed guns across the Mexican border. Then, he complained that American weapons were crossing the border and proposed marking that troubling 2nd Amendment off the Bill of Rights to stop it.

Seeking — successfully it turns out — to cow Republicans resisting raising taxes to seal a deal to raise the debt ceiling, Obama threatens to withhold Social Security checks. It’s a typical political ploy to threaten to cause the most pain on the largest number of people in order to get your way.

He lies with impunity, disregards the Constitution, ignores the laws he doesn’t agree with, does what he wishes, and has started three unConstitutional wars — two more than Bush started.

And Congress? Save for a few lone voices they stand by and pledge fealty to the Imperial Presidency.

          We the American people are under internal attack from Progressive/Socialist Marxist fifth colum, they disguise themsleves as dogooder’s for environment and social justice, when in truth they seek unbridled power and control over our lives.

          They would kill billions all over the world to create a so-call utopian world, with them as supreme leaders and the surviving human race as abject slaves to a world wide totalitarian regime of nightmarish qualities.

          They lie, have always lied, because the end justifys the means.

            Never forget that a lie can make it all the way around the world before the truth can get its shoes on. This person, that occupies the Oval Office today, has never accomplished anything except destruction of the American way of life. I look for him to declare martial law sometime before the 2012 election.



          • Old Henry

            Well said FreedomFighter, but lest we forget – God Almighty is still in charge.

            I have to CONSTANTLY remind myself of that fact. We himans are small-minded beings and have so much trouble conceiving that fact. I fear that God is no longer on the side of the United States, and why should He?

          • woodpecker

            Your GOP policies mainly got us right here and now … are you happy with that? Progressive policies created the largest middle class in world until you clown right-wingers brought them down and thus the country down. You dupes destroyed your own interests and still don’t know it.

          • Karolyn

            Old Henry – God (The Universe) is ALWAYS on EVERYBODY’S side! America is no more special than any other country. Where did everybody get the idea that because we are Americans, we are better or more favored than the rest of humanity? Such arrogance!

          • Push comes to shove

            We will know by Nov 11, 2012 if he is re-elected, if he is matial law will not come until his second term is almost up (Dec 12, 2016) or the american people rebel. If he loses the election he will declare martial law on Dec 12, 2012. The date sound familiar.

            What a maroon, the arrogance is on your part, America has been better (until 1988 whence came the first Bush, then Clinton,Bush and now the anti-christ). We were, and i mean were, the last bastian of freedom.

            Am i arrogant, maybe, but i know what is coming if not now then only a little later.

          “To conquer, first divide!”

          Actually, ole Bob did step in it, conveniently omitting those pesky
          Articles of Confederation……..because if you’re going to make the
          argument against anything……the original fear was in regards to a
          “strong CENTRAL government” and not worrying about branches which did not exist in any form resembling that which emerged in 1787.

          “Lies have always been regarded as necessary and justifiable tools not
          only ot the politician’s and demagogue’s but also of the stateman’s trade. Why is that so? And what does it mean for the nature and the dignity of the political realm on one side, and for the nature and the dignity of truth and truthfulness, on the other? Is it the very
          essence of truth to be impotent and the very essence of power to be deceitful? And what kind of reality does truth possess if it is powerless in the public realm?” Hanna Arendt

          Consider the current debate that is underway in never,never land and
          the goals being considered…..where the BIG DEAL is a 4 trillion
          funny money deficit reduction plan over ten years.

          Now we add ole Bob’s recent co-sponsored doom and gloom offering to
          profit from the impending 2011/12 financial collapse which states that
          this year’s deficit is 1.7 trillion.

          If the DEBT is the problem, deficit reduction is NOT a solution, anymore than the past mirage of “cuts in the increase of spending”
          were not cuts in spending.

          The FINAL COLLAPSE will not occur, except by accident……because the TRUTH here is that it has already taken place…….but that which would make the TRUTH a reality……is being prevented by smoke
          and mirrors and this will continue because no one benefits……
          especially those who are considerably more well off……

          The other TRUTH which is fighting to emerge is the mythology of economic growth……..and we have already passed that, since for the
          developed nations, recent recessions have rebounded with jobless
          recoveries, extreme income disparities and the one we are in now offers the choice of edging toward the precipice of the FINAL COLLAPSE
          or a complete restructuring of the meaning of civilization, itself.

          Unfortunately, the awareness of this latter TRUTH is limited in it’s exposure……while the evidence for it continues to mount……

          What is occuring in this country is classic distraction….and sites
          like this are reflections of it…..”Less filling! Tastes Great!”
          The Annual BUD Bowl! Or even more contemporary crap from an oil company whose tag line is “You’d be surprised what we can agree on.”
          or by comparison, the “interpretation” of the MANDATE implied by
          that last election results.

          Are the founding documents useful in assisting us “restore” this experiment to the path of it’s original intent? Possibly, but they
          must be taken in their entirety and not conveniently edited for
          personal tastes…….and secondly it must be realised by all affected
          that despite the efforts of those who attempted to avoid what are the
          frailities of being human, the result has been a failure for we have
          actually arrived at the place which all initial efforts were directed
          at preventing and have been here for some time, so much so, that
          any expectation of the solution to emerge from those being asked to
          provide it, is absurd.

          The TRUTH here, is relatively simple……the failure here is not
          one of the design…..but the corruption of that design over time.
          The chief component of this can be simply rendered…..

          “Keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer.” Michael Corleone; Mario Puzo ( The Godfather )

          To state this in an historical sense, with regard to the founding
          principles of the design, to guarantee the right of redress of grievances…….one must ensure that any system so constructed
          does not result in an outcome where the aggrieved party, finds oneself
          petitioning the source of that grievance, with any realistic expectation of a just outcome.

          My apologies for this interruption, feel free to resume whatever it is that you were doing.

          • JC

            Good points.
            But keep in mind, that the strong central government you refer to is owned and operated by an all powerful central bank.

            Two of the 10 planks of the communist manifesto…right there.

          • patrick H.T. paine

            “To conquer, first divide.”

            My reference to a strong central government, was that it was the FEAR
            expressed by the Articles of Confederation, which required unanimous
            consent of every state for federal action.

            This precedes any fears that arose from the constitutional dabates about fears assigned to any particular branch of government……so if one is going to attempt to bring a consistant analysis regarding the “intent” of the founding documents, omission of the Articles is rather foolish, especially if one’s point is that constitutional powers are limited to those enumerated?

            It was this fear that made the articles unworkable, and it was this FEAR that was realised, after they were abandoned……anyone who
            claims that the constitution is a living breathing document, can not support any such interpretative attempt, if they have to account for
            the Articles…….which explains why they are skipped over at every

            Is this any clearer, sir?

          First off, Czar is mostly media lingo, and not an official title. Bob knows this I just do not understand why he does not let us in on the secret Of the once 32 positions of czar only eight were Obama appointed, unconfirmed. The rest were Bush czars. Where were the cries when congress abdicated to His majesty Bush? Gun sales have increased since Obama was elected and he has pushed no laws to ban them. He was for reinstating the assault weapons ban. The real heyday of the czar came during His majesty George W. Bush administration. Come on guys. Birthers and liars beware.

            I agree Karolyn. Vigilante was definitely a Conservative or at least a strong RINO. Him and I butted heads more than once and about three months ago him and Dave H. had an “argument” and Vigilante turned against all this right wing diatribe. Certain issues can give everyone a brain tumor(now have at it you all).The jest of Bob’s article was pretty good if he could eliminate all the hype in trying to poke as many people in the eye as possible. Saying the TSA is out to “ogle naked photographs” is odd but only if you have a fetish for X-rays.

        Best Article I’ve read on the subject. Vigitant don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. You add ZERO to this board.

      • Kate 8

        Vigilant – I, for one, will be sorry to see you leave.

        We can’t all agree on everything, and shouldn’t expect to. I’ve never formed an opinion one way or another because I have too much other stuff to read about that has far more impact than focusing on someone who died a long time ago. Even though Lincoln probably did a lot of damage, we can’t go back and change it now, just as we can’t change what other past POTUS’s have done. What we need to put energy into is finding a way to restore our nation here and now.

        I hope you come back when you are ready.


        • DaveH

          The main point, Kate, is that the Lincoln revelations are a huge eye-opener to the amount of propaganda that we have all suffered at the hands of the MSM and our educational system. How can we possibly learn from our countrymen’s past mistakes when most of us haven’t even been taught what they really were?

          • Moses

            Want to see what the difference is between the current American History books, and the same books I learned American History from? The book I had in High school measured three and 3/4 inches thick. The current American History book, from a current High school class, is not over one and 1/4 inches thick; including covers. These two books were published by the same publishing company. Makes one wonder what is being left out of American History, doesn’t it? Makes me wonder who is giving the orders to the publishing company, to make the books thinner; as in what is being left out.
            I personally believe, that if President Obama does take the radical step to establish his control over this country, there will be a revolt by the citizens of this country; resulting in a blood bath which will make WWI, WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam, look like a Sunday school picnic.
            As I see it, the FBI should make the attempt to arrest and detain Mr. Obama, for being an “Illegal Alien occupying the highest office of the land”. The US Senate should actively work to IMPEACH Obama, and throw him in jail for his unAmerican Activities.
            When the election time comes around, in 2012, I will not be voting for Obama. Not sure who will get my vote, but it won’t be Obama.

        The real heyday of the czar came during the George W Bush administration. Czar is mostly media lingo, and not an official title. Bob knows this I just do not understand why he does not let us in on the secret. Of the once 32 positions of czar only eight were Obama appointed, unconfirmed. The rest were Bush czars. Where were the cries when congress abdicated to His majesty Bush? Gun sales have increased since Obama was elected and he has pushed no laws to ban them. He was for reinstating the assault weapons ban. I will leave this liars page also.

    • Marc

      Moderates or conservatives should listen to ‘all’ sides. ‘Vigilant’ is apparently closed-minded. Too bad. I like the whole story, especially the part about Obama being born “without the United States”… , yes, that is the proper phrase. That also pertains to federal statutes. They can be enforced “within the United States,” but not without… That is called Jurisdiction.
      Birthplace begs the question – WHY does the Federal Elections Commission ‘not require’ absolute proof of US citizenship before getting on the Ballot !! Hmmm.
      ***We need VOTER RECALL in this country badly, and we need it at the local, State, and Fed level.
      Our elitist BureauRats are totally out of control. I am sure I could write page after page. I yield the cyberspace to Bob.

      • Grammy_4_Freedom

        To Marc: You are quite right–we DO need a voter recall. Livingston’s quote from old is correct–the three branches of government ARE colluding against the American people, and there is no mechanism in the Constitution for us to address this, or get ODumber out of office if Congress won’t do it, and Congress has proven remarkably gutless in this regard, despite his trampling the Constitution underfoot every day since he has been in office.

        Elections have become such a rigged system to keep incumbents in office that we cannot fix it simply by voting in regular elections. Even if we succeed in dumping Odumber out of office in 2012 (assuming there will BE a 2012 election, which the way things are going, I seriously doubt), there is no guarantee our do-nothing Congress will undo all the pernicious legislation he has rammed through buried in other bills, passed behind closed door and in the dead of night, etc.

        The traitorous “mainstream media” is already hard at work choosing the next Republican nominee. They annointed Romney early on as the “frontrunner” and will simply ignore to death anybody who is not aleady OWNED by the special interests, multinational corporations, Wall Street, etc. They want Romney because, just in case there actually IS an election, they know he cannot win. The trouble is, Conservatives fly off in all directions, being the independent souls they are, and vote accordingly, while the Liberals and Communists vote as a bloc–that is how we GOT Odumber in the first place!

        And now that we have GOT him, with our government in the shape it is in, there is no way to get RID of him. He is basically functioning as a dictator right now. He all but thumbs his nose at Congress. If they don’t give him what he wants, he just passes another executive order to accomplish it under the table.

        And others of you who have observed that a large percentage of the population is (a) apathetic (b) ignorant (c) both are also correct. I truly fear for the future of our country and our liberties with this amoral little puppet of the Leftist would-be world rulers of the world in the White House.

        A very interesting column.. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL
        Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.

        Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel…
        He has been a journalist for 49 years.
        He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.

        Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.

        This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

        545 vs. 300,000,000 People
        -By Charlie Reese

        Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

        Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

        Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

        You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.

        You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

        You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

        You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

        You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

        One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

        I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

        I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

        Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

        What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

        The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House now? He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

        It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

        If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

        If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.

        If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan …

        If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

        There are no insoluble government problems.

        Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

        Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

        They, and they alone, have the power.

        They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

        Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…

        We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

        Tries to think.

        Tax his cigars,
        Tax his beers,
        If he cries
        Tax his tears.

        Tax his car,
        Tax his gas,
        Find other ways
        To tax his ass.

        Tax all he has
        Then let him know
        That you won’t be done
        Till he has no dough.

        When he screams and hollers;
        Then tax him some more,
        Tax him till
        He’s good and sore.

        Then tax his coffin,
        Tax his grave,
        Tax the sod in
        Which he’s laid…

        Put these words
        Upon his tomb,
        ‘Taxes drove me
        to my doom…’

        When he’s gone,
        Do not relax,
        Its time to apply

        What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

        I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

        GO AHEAD. . . BE AN AMERICAN!!!

        • Rico

          Well said. Two words are the cure: TERM LIMITS. This form of government NEVER anticipated a political class. It was expected that folks would serve a term or two and return to their regular lives. Until we eliminate the political class we will remain slaves to the state to one degree or another. It’s the ONLY solution.

          • Christin

            Two better words for a real long term cure are : Jesus Christ…

          • Gary

            All that is written in this entire accounting and all that has been commented on is so late in coming. It’s literally too late. If the word is only coming out now, then as my father had told me over 40 years ago, “It’ll be too late and too short in scope to change anything by then – the rouse will have taken them by insidiousness through their own complacent misdirected belief that they know what’s going on.”

            My father was discussing about the concerns that Bob Livingston now writes of here back in the late 1960’s when everyone was labeling my dad a fanatic and a doom and gloomer. His father had told him about the formation of families that had been established long before his time – a consortium of families whose purpose was to gradually widdle down the freedoms, the productivity and especially the Christian morality base of this nation. My forefathers had both belonged to a rather covert organization of elitists whose fingers were in the same pie as those who today are intently focused on undermining the US Constitution and our nation’s faith. The ultimate goal being to reduce the power, wealth and freedoms of individuals, which in their times were so much more prevalent in the U.S. than the remnant that remains today. Today’s generation have no idea how much has been taken from what was before their time!

            At this point, there is virtually nothing that can be done to stop the inevitable globalistic tyranny that is on the horizon. Had the people who mocked my dad, a man who knew of these families by name (names and faces that will never be publicly addressed today), had they instead listened and made just minor changes across the nation, this diabolical plan to harness and exploit the productivity of the masses for the benefit of a miniscule percentage of elitists might have been exposed and even possibly thwarted. For one, the technology to implement worldwide instantaneous surveillance and control did not yet exist in the 1960’ or even the 70’s. Not so today! This very forum we’re using now (the World Wide Web) that is linked into almost every household, especially those foolish enough to expose their all in forums like Facebook and the like, believing that there are safeguards protecting their confidentiality – this very technology is feeding the system that will eventually collate all your vital information to be used against you at the time “the trap is to be sprung”, as my dad used to say.

            From what my father knew of the master plan of his elitist acquaintances, he predicted very accurately in the early 1960s the financial decline of our dollar, the dismantling of our nation’s educational standards, the decline of the family unit and all sense of personal responsibilities, the abolishment of absolute values and standards, the gradual diminishing of our nation’s Christian heritage and influence, the decaying of our nation’s leadership and on and on. People would laugh at him and I distinctly remember him saying to these people (might as well be people of today): “I know what is in the works for you all. My forefathers were in on this. I speak from first hand knowledge. You are all fools to think men with power wouldn’t do such a thing!” He told me later “This is an intentional agenda but will be presented as though it’s a run-away train out of control – but in reality it’s an articulate concerto of violinists in perfect harmony – but the people will be made deaf to its implications”. All the things that my dad said were going to occur (too much to write here) have ALL happened just as his family cohorts said they’d cause to happen. Now that’s just too much coincidence to be coincidence! At this point – what is the point. We’ve already well passed the crest of the Niagra and are going down onto the rocks below…. and yet THERE ARE STILL PEOPLE TODAY THAT DON’T SEE THE CATASTRAPHE THAT THIS NATION IS ON THE BRINKS OF EXPERIENCING! At that point, the elitist families had already won. Michael Savage’s term “Sheeple” is so very appropriate here. We’ve cooked our own goose and denied it all the while feasting on the bird!

            Ironically, the comment made earlier by Christin were probably the only few words that not only stated a simple truth in all this, but the only thing that’s really going to matter in the end: She simply stated: Two better words for a real long term cure are: Jesus Christ… and that’s what our own nation’s founding fathers were convinced of as well…. something that the hidden elitist families of today do not want you to realize.. and they’ve succeeded ….apparently.

          • Christin

            Thanks Gary,

            Good post.

            I remember my mom telling me when I was a young girl that the Communists would not attack from without, but from within… and they did.

            I was surprised when I started to grow up because I listened to the men in government and they were so anti-communist that I thought no one could get through to the leadership ranks let alone a whole bunch like the list above from David in MA, to change our way of life… but here we are… and they have…

            And I wonder why didn’t my parents’ generation fight the good fight and keep up the look out to protect our land from Communist infiltration if they knew… I still don’t have an answer.

        • mr. greene

          Amen to that my friend. I just think that the job creators (rich/wealthy) should be taxed as the rest of us! I’m sure alot of you agree… but why should us middle-classers have to suffer so much worse than them paying for all this bull. Im feeling the poem though and what you saying.


      After reading the majority of the comments left on this article, it looks like ya’ll are a pretty tight knit group. Care if I join in on the fun?

    • mr. greene

      Im glad to see that since i last was on this site i see much better ideas coming from all of you. Obama is getting to be as bad as any of the bad gop candidates. I really have began to like some of the ideas im hearing from people such as ron paul and john huntsman. I just really must stress that people start researching the bilderberg group if you havent already heard of it. They are the ones searching for a single global government. I think many of you would find it to be as serious as i do and as everyone should. Although i still believe in some of the stuff O is doing besides the fact that much of it he hasnt gone through with such as some of the lefty type proposals he has made. I just honestly fear some of the beliefs of the GOP candidates who preach how the seperation of church and state is important and yet want to have the rights to ban mosques… if the rights to do that can be justified i’d think that they can do the same for our synagogues and churches which of course brings light on how ridiculous this proposition is. I hope many of you do agree that bachmann has done some things that struck fear in my heart such as how god has spoke to her and told her to marry her husband as well as run for president. Praying is one thing but saying you have spoke to god is no different that speaking to an imaginary friend. I just wanted to get some stuff off my chest because the last time i visited personal liberty i was accused of being a socialist or whatever which is completely ridiculous. While i dont tend to believe in the article written i did wana see how my fellow americans and patriots have been fighting for their beliefs. Dont get on my ass about it but i really think as myself being in a middle-middle class that the taxes should at least be raised for those who are considerably rich. It is ridiculous for a democratic president to propose cuts to the programs in which they have fought to maintain for so many years. While some may need to be reformated many should not be effected at all. Well, i hope all of you can come together with me and propose to our leaders that the taxes on the rich are really a very important issue. Im young and hadnt known til recently but i think its ridiculous us in the middle class pay higher taxes than the wealthy or so called “Job Creators” which is a total bogus statement… im just surprised many people dont see it that way. These same people take the money and outsource meanwhile many are woried about the latino’s crossing the border. Well god bless you all for being so passionate, i apologize if some of my ideas are a little liberal but hey not all of us believe in the same things.
      Stay informed by non-bias media!
      AND MOST DEFINITELY get up on the bilderberg group… learning about this completely changed my outlook on Barack as well as many other people on both sides you think are trying to do the right thing.
      Also, conspiracy theory with jesse ventura is a wonderful source of information…. entertaining…but so shocking that it can almost be considered scary.
      May our country one day become satisfying for all people, of all races, and all beliefs, religious and political alike.

      • mr. greene

        and please for the love of god help influence the raising of the debt cieling, as i said its fair for some cuts to be made to certain programs but there is NO reason that we should further increase the problem in which is our economy. I havent researched enough what it could mean for us to default but It is seemingly a horrendous outcome. Peace and love!

          That is correct. The difference is, when our guys lie to us, we want them gone. Libs/progressives/Marxists/communists circle the wagons to protect THEIR liars! Ref: R.M. Nixon lying to us in a speech about coverup (resigned at OUR request) vs. W.J. Clinton, lying under oath (impeached, case proven, not a single democrat senator voted to convict).

          • eddie47d

            Nixon damaged the trust of our political system. Clinton embarrassed himself and obviously a few of you. I see a big difference in who did the most harm.

          • American Citizen

            Clinton lied to Congress which is a punishable offense as Roger Clemens is going to find out.

          • Other Brother Patriot

            Don’t you people get it? Just look at the division we have here. This 2 party system was a diabolic ploy, scheme, scam designed to keep us divided. And apparently it’s been working very well according to the Architects of Control’s blueprint. If we were united as one super powerful human entity none of this orchestrated BS would be going on in our lives to day. The reason it is, we’re too busy rooting for one side or another (just like a football game) hoping your side will win. We need to wake up to this nonsense of a 2 party system and realize it’s getting us nowhere. Just ask yourselves this question: Does it matter who gets in office? No it doesn’t because if it did, things getting better instead of worst. They’re all puppets on a string being control by the puppeteer (Controlling Elite, Globalist, etc). None of what the puppets say in their campaign political rhetoric (lies) ever materializes as the say it will. Wake up people! It’s time for real genuine change for the better that needs to spelled out for us in detail and not just this empty political rhetoric.

            You are right.If we can’t pull together then it really dosen’t matter anymore.This is the finally and I feel they are going in for the kill.People I hate to say this but its all over,the end game is here.We are in for marshal law and that’s when we all go home and make peace with God because if your not ready by now then don’t worry the gbmnt will take care of you just like you wanted.Except their plans for you is not going to be pretty.You served them well and now you can be paid for what you wanted.For the rest of us Good luck it wont be fast it may take years but I believe we will provale if we all do our part.

            American Citizen says: Clinton lied to Congress which is a punishable offense as Roger Clemens is going to find out.

            A mistrial has been declared in the Clemen’s trial. I’ve always wondered why the guvment has wasted so much of the taxpayer’s money going after the frivolous Barry Bond’s and Roger Clemens when there are far more important problems in America. Go figure!

          • independant thinker

            Jeff the mistrial was declared because of a prosecutors error in letting some in-admissable evidence be shown to the jury.

            As far as congress investigating I agree it should be strictly a court matter. If laws were broken prosecute if not leave him alone.

          • Kate 8

            Dan az – I’m afraid you are right, but don’t discount the psy-ops being done on us to convince us that we’ve already lost and that resisting is futile. It’s done all the time in warfare.

            BTW, check out this site:


            I’m so blown away by this material. It’s the best, most scientific, reasonable, understandable and revealing that I’ve read to date and, believe me, I read A LOT.

            So much of the end times studies ask us to believe things that make no rational sense. Tom Horn, after years of research, has put it all in context and makes it MAKE SENSE by revealing today’s scientific capabilities, and explaining the “secret agenda” carried forth by powerful families for millenia.

            Remember, knowledge is power. We need to come out of the dark.

    Quite an article, Bob. In defense of the new dictator [not really], it sounds as though he’s in charge of protecting family blood lines [ref. Caesar, Caligula, Nero, Domitian, Stalin, Lenin, Marx, Mao, etc.].
    Bummer’s jockstrappers will once again rise to the occasion (almost sounds phallic), and protect the fledgling dictator, regardless of what he says, does or thinks. Consider the perp, and consider his jockstrappers. Consider freedom, and what it will take to root out and get rid of his negative influences on America.

            No, we are not. We may have to go through Nuclear Devestation. Millions of Americans will die, but we. Will. PERSEVERE! Our country will bounce back, we will defeat our enemies. And we will have the most qualified Man for governing us at the head of our Armies and at the head of our Government.

            This Man is a god of war. He stated it himself. He will cause all people to return to their own country. Blacks will return to Africa, the Chinese will return to China. Yisrael will inherit both America and Israel. The descendants of Ashekenaz and Togarmah will return to the lands of their Fathers.

            This Man does not beat about the bush. He does not excuse himself for his unpopular, unpolitically correct, but very eloquent speech. This Man is the husband of Israel. He is going to have his Kingdom, even if he has to pry it from Obama’s cold, dead fingers.

        Bush actually went to the UN (worthless body) and got permission. Then he went to congress. obumbla didn’t do either.

        • Jim

          What a load of BS. Obama DID go to the UN, first & foremost. When the UN told Obama to invade Syria, he did so with out ever even acknowledging the EXISTANCE of Congress, let alone their warmaking Power under the Constitution at all.

          Even the War Powers Act gave Obama 60 days to address Congress & gain either their official approval or official declaration of war, otherwise pull out…Obama waited until the very last moment to ask Congress, failed to get Congressional approval (by using feeble excuses like, “we’re not really engaging in “hostilities” even as our bombs were dropping & “forward inertial effectgs”) & then proceeded to IGNORE Congress’ refusal altogether.

          • JUKEBOX

            Remember bombs and bullets do not kill, it is the people in control of them that kill.

            For those unacquainted with Communism’s 45 Steps, I strongly advise that you study them. Many have already been accomplished. America has just elected a president who has more in common with communism than he does with America. If you love this country, fight to make sure Obama and his bots do not fulfill these steps. It is a fight too many of us are too late engaging in, but it ain’t over yet.

            Jim, I suggest you go to this link and see what is happening to our country. Wake up! Don’t be a tool.
            Here’s a taste:
            13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

            15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

            17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

            24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

            25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

            26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

            27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

            28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

            29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

            30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

            31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

            36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

            37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

            38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

            40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

            If this doesn’t convince of the control the government already has over us, then you are truly lost.

          • Rico

            I think you meant to say “Libya” not “Syria”. As far as I knoe we haven’t invaded them as yet, but give us time. Obama plans to kill off as much of the military as it takes.

    Thanks for the A to Z list of Obama atrocities. Unbenounced to his faithful followers, he’s leading us across bridges that he plans to burn.

      You hit a nerve ‘..writing letters to our congressman’. My district is served by two of the most liberal senators and our congressman is more liberal than them; so what’s the point?? However, if none of us who want our voices heard, albeit our ‘representatives’ are liberal and follow Obama like sheep, we descend into apathy. Apathy will destroy this nation; we can see it already. NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE FORCING THE ISSUES AND DEMANDING WE BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. If not, the majority of the people will rule if we IMPEACH. I don’t believe the 2012 vote will be honest.

The vote is almost a joke: between the illegals, dead, animals, computer ‘glitches’, voting and the lazy non-voters, I doubt that the vote will be the will of the people. I’ll vote anyway.

        • DaveH

          No doubt there are fraudulent vote counts out there, but the major problem is that so many people have become dependent on Government for their incomes that they are blinded to reality. The polls support that.
          Can we turn them around? Many of them are too fixated on the trough to want to learn the truth. But I think it’s possible.
          The first order of the day is to work hard to get our children away from the propaganda schools and into schools where they can really learn useful skills. But the forces against that are very powerful. Take Voucher systems. They are a great concept, but we need to be careful that what they offer is Educational Choice, not just School Choice. If the Government sets the curriculum, the choice of schools is just a red-herring. See here:

          • American Citizen

            I agree, parents need to get more involved in their children’s education. They need to read the books their children bring home and protest anything they see that is wrong, whether it’s distorted history (if they themselves know any) or just one point of view. They need to question what their children heard in class. The old, “How was school today?” doesn’t mean anything. Direct questions are what are necessary.

          • JUKEBOX

            Cut them off the government teat, and see how quick they will turn on their favorite politician.

          • independant thinker

            “…….but the major problem is that so many people have become dependent on Government for their incomes that they are blinded to reality.”

            I am not sure that is the primary cause. There are to many that vote the party because they have always voted that way. There are to many that vote the way their boss or union says because they don’t want to think for themselves. There are to many that vote for the incumbant simply because he/she is the incumbant.

        • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

          I agree. But the problem has been long term. I recall in my little home town 50 long years ago, a reform candidate had 1000 people who were willing to sign an affidavit they had voted for him, and only 10 votes were counted! The candidate was told it would require a $10,000 fee to recount! And all the ballots had been destroyed anyhow!

          And we have Nevada, where the computers had to be repaired while voting was in progress in order to elect the liberals…who seemed to be losing until the union “fixed” the computers.

        Then give the Libertarians your support. They are the only party that champions Freedom on their platform. The others only give it lip-service and then promote anti-freedom agendas.
        The Military Statists are taking advantage of our naivete, and the Welfare Statists are taking advantage of our naivete. They both use their propaganda techniques to buy votes, grow their power, and aid their favorite Crony Capitalists.
        Sending our military on excursions around the world to bring “democracy” to other countries is not exercising “Freedom”. And they certainly aren’t protecting our Freedom by pissing people off around the world. Some day, like it did to all the great empires, those pushy actions will come back to bite us. So far, over the last 150 years, the Government has posed more of a threat to our Freedom than any outside attackers.
        And the welfare statists build their power by deluding people into thinking there is a free lunch. There is no such thing. They must take money from the producers to give to the non-producers. That has not and will not ever bring prosperity to those countries who try it. I suspect that the politicians know that and are just brazenly buying votes.
        We need to push our country back to the kind of Freedom that wise well-read founders like Jefferson advocated. The kind of Freedom that was under attack almost as soon as our country began by those who wanted the same kind of system (mercantilism) that our forefathers fought and died to prevent in America.
        There is only one political party that offers that. For Individual Liberty, Personal Responsibility, Free Markets, Limited Government (at all levels), and PEACE — Vote Libertarian!

        • Michael J.

          No doubt Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman are the real deal, but can they win? In a political atmosphere where only cheaters win, will they step up to the plate, and cheat as well? And if they did, are they the candidate we desire?

          There’s a reason for Obama’s boldness, the left and right halves of the Bilderberg Party Progressives have all the bases covered. With 100 plus years of planning, coniving and sucessful placement of detention facilities for the condemned masses and security infrustructure for the elite in place, has brought them to the point where they are actively soliciting an insurgency, provoking a sought after reaction which would provide the neccesary justification for a Soviet style tamp down of the trouble makers. Like a man poking a dog with a stick with one hand, while concealing a loaded hand gun behind his back with the other.

          As a result, I feel they are to entrenched, their contengencies to plentiful, their resources unfathomable. No, it’s time to face the facts, Charlie’s inside the wire, we’ve got Gooks in the perimeter. Time to make the call… “BROKEN ARROW”

          And may God have mercy on us.

          • DaveH

            They can’t win until people quit worrying if they can win. We need to build their numbers. As the party attracts more voters, more people will look into it, and the numbers will grow larger. It’s just a matter of time (maybe short as you say) before the economy crashes to the point where the voters will be wishing they had voted Libertarian. Let’s quit wishing and take action.
            Look how Ron Paul has built an almost fanatical following. The momentum is in our favor.

          • DaveH

            My feeling about Jon Huntsman is that he’s a pig in a poke. I couldn’t even find his issues page on his own website,
            My lowly representative has an issues page. Is he hiding something? For instance, I don’t care for Herman Cain’s agenda, but he is not afraid to tell us what it is. I give him credit for that honesty.

      • professor

        Yes, half of the nation is…apathetic! These are the people that feel they have everything “to gain” by keeping the Imperial Administration in power. It is the 43% that does not work or pay taxes. These are the people that have their hands held out for more of the same, “redistribution of wealth!”

        Then, add the illegals that this administration allows to flood across our borders! These are the people from many countries that come to “settle” America! They come to make changes not unlike the changes that the White House wants to make! Americans,imagine a country where you no longer have the majority vote!

        • Karolyn

          “It is the 43% that does not work or pay taxes.”

I also don’t like anyone being ambushed over personal sexual matters except the immediate family. It is solely up to the spouse to handle the situation not the media or the public.Republicans and Democrats love sexual sensationalism yet it seems like the Republicans yearn for it more in running to the media.

          • Jeep

            eddie, I am so glad you are there to defend karolyn’s honor. However, you may not know of that which you are so quick to judge. I was referring to other exchanges I have had with karolyn. Try to keep up. The “attack” you mention would only be negative if it were baseless. My comment is soldily based on a conversation with karolyn a while ago in which she admitted to taking govt handouts. If you feed from the trough, then you are part of the problem.

          • DaveH

            Actually, some of the wealthy do like the status quo. Those who use Government to stifle their smaller competitors are indeed a problem. But to lump all wealthy together is just plain wrong, Karolyn.
            As usual, the main problem, even with the Crony Capitalists, is that we’ve allowed the Government to get involved with the economy. Once Government is involved with the economy, it is inevitable for them to work with certain Big Businesses to support them with taxpayer money and stifle their competitors. The question is, can we put the genie back in the bottle?

          • Karolyn

            And, Jeff, as I have said before (in different words). When someone is drowning, they most certainly will grab the first hand he can reach. I was drowning and gratefully accepted what was granted to me.

        I believe Obama WILL be re-elected in 2012 regardless of the actual vote count. Voter fraud got him elected in 2008; fraud will get him re-elected in 2012. The fraud that occured in 2008 was just a test run for 2012: Fraud will be present again in 2012, but in greater number. It will also be better hidden. Even if fraud is detected nothing will happen. Obama and Holder will not allow prosecution (Remember the New Black Panthers?).

      I wrote this comment to another article/discussion on the “Light Bulb” issue but it has a lot of what is being discussed here so I am copying and pasting it here.

      We have a “Federal Government” that is NOT representive of “WE THE PEOPLE”. This “Agency” continues to create, make, pass laws that increase the imposition on “WE THE PEOPLE”, (their bosses). HOW did this country survive over 230 years withOUT all these laws? How were we, the voters, the workers, tax payers, the people of the United States, THEIR BOSSES who they are suppose to represent, be so successful that we have become the greatest country on earth?

      We now have a “Federal Government” that has become so invasive, so powerful as to tell us what we, “Their Bosses”, are allowed to do. We have this “Agency” that is SUPPOSE to represent us but believes IT is in control and we are their minions to do to us as they please. We have this “Important Group” deciding what money’s we can earn, keep and save, what taxes we must pay, what motor vehicles we must buy and drive, what fuel we are to use, what food we are to eat and how much, WHAT LIGHT BULBS WE MUST BUY AND USE. They are already pushing to decide how many pieces of TOILET PAPER we need to use. Will they come out with a law on picking your nose and that if you do that in public, you can be arrested and thrown in jail?!?!?!

      Instead of worrying about what Bruce and Wayne, two grown and consenting adults are doing in private, maybe they should be more concerned with how this country is being sold down the river by the Muslim-In-Chief and our position in the world. I believe these politician have WAY TOO MUCH TIME on their hands. AT WHAT POINT will the people wake up and say enough is enough? Maybe they need to be retired and we start all over again.

      Additional point:
      This country is suppose to have a government “OF the people, BY the people and FOR the people”. I think it should be considered a contradiction, when THE PEOPLE, who are “In Charge” (Government OF the PEOPLE), have no say, when their REPRESENTATIVES, just plain ignoring what “Their Bosses” want. How long would an employee in the workplace last, if that employee, just did what they pleased, disregarding what their employer hired them to do?

    Tried that writing, e-mail and calling my congressman. It doesn’t work. I think that I have a relatively good congressman, problem is, most, if not all the correspondence that I send never reaches the congressman—-too many middlemen,(or women), with their own agenda that get to decide what the congressman actually receives. Last time I called the local congressional office that screens my correspondence to Randy Forbes, they told me that they haven’t received any mail from me since 2007. I have probably sent at least a hundred during that time, mostly critical of Forbes and his actions. He never saw them. No way to say that I have an opinion at all. Can’t wait for the opportunity to tell him face to face what a screwed up organization on the local level that he has. Ray Mason

          That is interesting… I own two homes one in Virginia and one in North Carolina. I write both representatives when I have a beef. My representative in NC is a democrat and I always get a personalized letter back, no doubt from an aid. The representative in Virginia is a republican and I always get a form letter back from him. He has acknowledged that he is FOR what I was complaining about, particularly through the 2000′s when my complaint was the GOP running up the debt.

      • DaveH

        They very obviously still do fear the voters. You can see that in their actions. When they lie, for instance, they are doing so because they fear the voters. Obama spending all his time campaigning around the country is another good indication of fear of the voters.
        Probably the most effective use of our time is to inform our friends and relatives of things they may not know. I think informative book suggestions can’t be beat when it comes to effective communication. There are many out there that expose Government for what it really is.

    what will happen if this wont work and it just sets us back even more and then we pay more on the interest… can we trust obama and this congress.. I dont think so but then how many ppl in america re paying attention..

  • Bob

    I saw this coming and began referring to maobama as “President For Life” a long time ago. The fact is, democrats are tyrants who use the parasites of this country as a power base. We have become a “parisitocracy+ – a nation run by a government “of the parasites, by the parasites, and for the parasites”. Our future is the future of Detroit and other such scumocrat run cesspools. Of course, we are as much to blame as anyone – we stood by as the parasites infiltrated the media, the schools, the judicial system and the government. We allowed the parasites to build the welfare system to feed the worthless and we allowed the parasites to build a huge government infrastructure to provide jobs for parasites. The Republicans had a couple of chances to dismantle the parasite feeding and breeding apparatus but they lacked the will to so. Unfortunately, just removing “His Malignancy” from office isn’t going to help much; we need a top to bottom purge of the parasites in this country or we are going to fall in to a new Dark Ages.

      Hi Bob ([post from 7:21 am)

      Too bad you can’t hear me clapping. Your comments were well said. I’ve been saying the same thing since Bush set forth the stimulus package. If our government would have really wanted to help “we the people,” the checks would have gone out to the adult citizens of the US who have been paying their taxes for years. Instead they bailed out the irresponsible banks and cronies. That was a real eye opener for me to the actions of both parties. I am now a Constitutiotnalist. The dems want our country in their pocket and the republicans, even when in control, back away from their responsibilities. In 2012, let’s flip this government.

      Thank you for the new nick name. I really like “maobama.” It really fits well.

      • Jim

        “I am now a Constitutiotnalist.”

        I agree entirely. The “two-party” system goes towards the same goals & always has. Upon taking the lawfully-binding Oath of Office that all State & Federal Officers MUST before assuming Office, that’s the point where there’s NO ROOM for Democrats or Republicans…The Oath demands “upholding the Constitution,” therefore all government officers are BOUND BY LAW to become Constitutionalists.

        I’ve heard of an accurate description of Politics as “The Art of Compromise,” but there’s no room under our Laws to compromise the Constitution. Basically, this goes to show that there’s too many “politicians” in government, when we need STATESMEN (& women).

        Maobama is the heir of Stalin, Hitler, Mao and the rest of the socialist mob of murderers; therefore it is not “paranoia” to suspect him of being capable of just about any evil. Of course, being evil yourself, you aren’t capable of understanding the problem that decent people have with satan Jr. (aka maobama).

    Has anyone realized that his Marxist/Communist doctrine is virtually the same drivel we hear from the pretender in the White House. Most of the time, I don’t hear any truth, fact, or reality from the POTUS’ speeches. He seems to have gotten his speech training from Idid Amin. I’m sure Amin could have done better with a teleprompter. But the Potus and Amin are similar in their view of themselves. And what their role is. Here is an Amin speech. It reminds me of most of the POTUS speeches. You don’t really know what he is saying, but he thinks his workd are very inportant.

    Memorable Speeche of Idi Amin

    After a luncheon hosted by the Queen in London in his honour…..

    “Mr Queen, Sir, Horrible Ministers, invented guests, ladies under gentlemen. I thank the Queen very plenty for what he has done to me. I tell you, I have eaten so much that I am now fed up with malicious meal.

    Before I continue, I would kindly ask you to open the windows so that the climate may get in plenty. But before I go back I must invert Mr Queen to my country and I can assure you, Mr Queen that when you come, I shall revenge to you. You will eat a full cow and I will work very difficult to make sure that you will come back with a very full stomach.

    For now I am sorry that I have just made a short call on you. The next time I will make a long one possible for a full moon. Thank you for letting me undress you in front of all the disgusting people.”

    This followed:

    “Ladies and Women, my beloved husbands and men in this general assembly I am thank you very difficult for your kind to forgive me this hour to talk about Africa and my country which is in Uganda. First I am Field MArshal Dr Al Haj Idi Amin Dada the life President of my country I am apologised because I have not deaded Archbishop Jamani Luwum when so many people tell me so many questions about him. His death on my behalf was happened with accident which was in the car when he walked with it. So again let me teach that as far as I am knowing and even the two Ministers all Oboth-Ofumbi and Oryema was all of the two deaded in one of that very accident. So I am not mistake you see.

    Another words is for the order in my country in Uganda. The Press Newsmen which you can all look them here will wanted to know the law orders of my country. They have enquiring me many questions on because my policemen don’t catch people in court while they have just them lost them on the way. No this is not the right yet all of them who are catched by my fellow policemen are removed for court. When the court does not find them good enough and tis them with all mistakes beginning from one month to ten years with even above. So we attempt people in court before we die them in prisons and those you understand about them dead are if they travel with care and they don’t find control and miss in the bush where they previously dead themself as my men invent their death. Uganda is a peace loving brother country when people enjoy as is they are in another country. This is the true about one country.

    Dr Kurt Waldheim you are very beautiful in one of these husbands. I think you are this beauty to look what is going in South Africa and Rhodesia. I am sending two hours to whites as if they choose freedom to African Brothers or you will not blame me and I take a wondering action to blow them.

    Lass of that I am thank your lunch which is smelly good. I am again fed up with it and I have admitted to revenge when bothe of you are invented by Uganda. Thank you very hard an we shall collide everywhere else in internal.”

    (When the Queen later asked the journalists present what on earth Amin had said, they replied that it was in a language similar to English, but that was all they could say. Isn’t that exactly what happens after a POTUS speech?).

          I’ve read a lot of these posts and most are democrats calling Republicans names, but I did here a few who identified the problem and some offered solutions. Evermyrtle brought up impeachment. Well that was my thoughts for a long time, until I read an article on American Patriot Union I think it was called. Anyway I think the title of the article was Why Congress Doesn’t Impeach Obama. If they try to impeach on the birth certificate thing they will have to indite every congressman who knew about it. If that’s not enough, judgements going back to I think was 1867, the trial of Mississippi vs Johnson to the Nixon and Clinton thing, where somewhere in all this mess the president was granted a wide range of immunity because of the nature of his job. I was tired at the time and the article was long filled with legal jargon but what I got out of it was the president will be real hard to impeach and he knows it. Didn’t he claim to have taught Constitutional law at Harvard? Maybe they could go for the Libya thing I don’t know. Maybe there’s some lawyers out there that can shine some light on this.

    • Mutantone

      Demand that the Military follow their Oath to defend the nation against all enemies both foreign and domestic!

        They also swear to obey the commander-in-chief. Which do you think they take more seriously? Witness Libya.

        • Jim

          Too true…It seems that far too many of our brothers & sisters in the Armed Forces forget a certain part of their Oath specifies obedience to all LAWFUL orders. In short, each & every serviceman/woman must jusdge the lawfullness of orders coming down the chain of command & are charged also to DISOBEY orders that are not lawful & even follow this concern as far up as it takes to VERIFY or DISAFFIRM the orders as lawful. I know this because I’m a vet of the First Gulf War Era, under Daddy Bush…Even though I’ve not been lawfully obligated to that Oath (since I’m no longer “in office”) for more than 20 years, I still take the Oath seriously.

          I have to admit sympathy for those that DO remember their Oath…Witness the imprisonment of Col. Terry Lankin, oustanding career thrown in the dumpster for obeying his Oath of Office.

  • Karen

    The new Dark Ages are closer than the average American realizes, and I am convinced that our only hope of avoiding it is to reveal Obama for who he really is. If Congress won’t do it, we can. Begin with Stephen Pidgeon’s book “The Obama Error” along with Corsi’s latest book on the birth certificate. The Pidgeon book has detail of the many other crimes Obama has committed and also explains why it is virtually impossible for Obama to even by a citizen, let alone a natural born citizen. He has–according t British law–a Commonwealth citizenship which he has never renounced. He is also a citizen of Indonesia. If he ever reclaimed his American citizenship–which many say he never had in the first place, he would have had to have taken an oath of allegiance AND registered for the draft BEFORE his 26th birthday. He did neither, and the selective service from he published in 2008 has been proven a forgery. If he did not register for selective service prior to the age of 26, there is now no way for him to claim American citizenship. We have ben dooped, people, in ways far beyond or worst nightmare. As if that wasn’t enough, Pidgeon has a lot of cirsumstantial evidence that would indicate that Obama himself may be a Sunni Muslim and secret member of the Muslim Brotherhood. But don’t take my word for it. Read the book and decide for yourself.

      While predestination is not eminent it can be accelerated with defeatism. If you see dark days, dark days you will have.

      While I would confess, things today are looking a bit gloomy at the moment on many level, they can change if only you permit the possibility of change and work to that end. But if you seek out gloom, gloom you will find.

      We can’t control all things but we can control how we react to them.

      Much or most of what is happening today is contrived to create a response from you. Even a cow knows when it is being herded through a gate and resist with all it’s power and will. It will resist your “will” regardless of any benevolent or demonic intentions you harbor.

      As humans, we pick and choice our response, we don’t have a “one response that fits all” though it seems so at times. Mr. Livingston is herding you into a corral of contempt for government and especially the current administration with history, facts, commentary and projected embellishment.

      Why? What will happen there that wouldn’t happen otherwise?

      Mr. Livingston is attempting to tap into the power of the collective to affect change, you are being solicited by a powerful word smith. He only needs to get the strongest among us head to turned toward the gate and the rest will follow.

      While there is much truth to his words, was not this same man offering wind under 43′s wings at one point in time purely by virtue of party label rather then opposing flawed thinking.

        Dear bob wire,

        You accuse me of “projected embellishment.” Please provide an example.

        You write: “…was not this same man offering wind under 43′s wings at one point in time purely by virtue of party label rather then opposing flawed thinking.”

        No. I am no Republican ideologue, nor was I a fan or supporter of Bush 43’s policies. If you have proof to the contrary, I suggest you offer it up.

        The “projected embellishment” seems to be coming from you.

        Best wishes,

          Mr. Livingston wrote;

          “Dear bob wire,

          “You accuse me of “projected embellishment.” Please provide an example.”

          Okay, but I confess, I’m some what limited, I can’t find anything on you earlier then mid 2008. Even “Oil Weekly” fail to go back very far.

          I’m sure material is out there but limited by time, I’ll jump in with what I got Mr. Livingston.

          After 41 years of writing analyzes, which means you started at the ripe age of 26 writing on oil & gas interest. The connection with Bush/Chaney came somewhat natural as I can’t see you as a “Kerry” man. I would think that you would be sympathetic to gas & oil interest, finding much in common with the Bush’s and Dick Chaney. As we know, they too are hip deep in the oil and mineral extraction much like yourself and your Father at one time.

          No complete stranger to the oil patch myself, embellishment is a standard “throw down card” when it comes to discussions with people that are clueless. It takes serious loot to poke holes in the earth and someone has to be “sold” before commitment. Embellishment works!

          Now, ~ at 41 years doing what you do, I know that I am pulling on Super Man cape here, ~ as I also have endeavor in the same field for 41 years and know “exactly just how long 41 years is” and have some idea of the level of play you are working at.

          I wrote: “…was not this same man offering wind under 43′s wings at one point in time purely by virtue of party label rather then opposing flawed thinking.”

          BL wrote;
          “No. I am no Republican ideologue, nor was I a fan or supporter of Bush 43’s policies. If you have proof to the contrary, I suggest you offer it up.”

          I’d need to go back farther then 2008 to find proof of that. The trail ends.

          but just to hear you say it does offer some comfort and nice to know, but where were you when we needed people such as yourself?

          I didn’t hear you voice. Opposition from the oil patch community was a very rare thing to hear then or now.

          “The “projected embellishment” seems to be coming from you.”

          But of course ! I’m from Texas and have many friends, family and personal interest in the oil patch. I pay taxes on royalty checks and am a different brand of conservative myself.

          And here your more recent embellishment;

          “Meanwhile, Obama morphs into more of a Third World-style dictator every day. Recognizing that the Federal government was abdicating its responsibility to control the border and guarantee every State a republican form of government, Arizona passed a comprehensive immigration law that virtually mirrored Federal law. The Obama Administration sued Arizona.”

          I guess it depends on what kind of mirror and then too, a state is not a national sovereignty. There is a difference and “O” didn’t sue as must as he subjected Arizona proposed laws to the scrutiny of the courts in defense of personal freedoms. Some passed judgment and some didn’t.

          Enjoy sparing with you and enjoyed you write.

            Dear bob wire,

            You, my friend, are addled. I can only assume you have me confused with John Myers as I have never had any association with Oil Weekly and I can assure you I was much older than “the ripe age of 26″ when I began writing my newsletter in 1969. And while we don’t have all the archives online, you can read back to 2002 at (subscription required).

            And yes, the Obama administration did sue Arizona law and the law does mirror the Federal law (unless your mirror is broken).

            Best wishes,

      • Karolyn

        Love what you had to say, bob. The more hue and cry we hear about how terrible things are, the more fearful people get, the worse things get. Every time a bad headline comes out, the stock market falls. Shouldn’t that show people what cowardice does? Everybody is so fearful they are creating that which they fear the most! My motto is “Enjoy life; support the economy; and love everybody!”

        • Capitalist at Birth

          The worst, may yet be to come. If you are not prepared, it will be your problem not mine.

          • Bob

            Karolyn is prepared – she is already a parasite and knows how to work the system to get something for nothing.

          • Karolyn

            Now, Bob, was that really necessary?

          • bob wire

            No Bob, Karolyn is a realist, knowing what she can change , accepts what she can’t and knows the difference.

            I would guess is it you ~ as well that “uses the system” if I remember correctly from your many postings. Which is okay, that’s what it’s for, to use ~ but not to abuse. I am not suggesting either you or Karolyn are abused the system, but you seem to.

            Myself, at 63 ~ I am not a part of any system and receive “O” Zero federal , state or city government level funding either private or public. I am helping to support both the wealthy and the poor it seems.

            At some point in the future I expect to, but for now I’m very self sustaining and in better health then most.

            I do use the public road system however, people seem to get excited as I move about otherwise. I also use the municipal water system for some of my water demands and paid dearly for the access. I have a $247.00 water bill for June on my desk now.

    • Tom Anderson

      Dear Karen,

      You are barking up the wrong tree. Of course, ALL that you say is true, but it MUST be true.

      Obama’s CIA background and his Mommy’s and GrandMommy’s CIA contacts MUST be protected at all costs. The CIA is simply performing its patriotic duty by obfuscating Obama’s BC and his draft records and academic records etc. Those records can NEVER be disclosed. Every court in the land is under obligation to maintain all of his history as EXTREMELY CONFIDENTIAL.

      What more do you need to know?

      We will NEVER know the truth about Obama and that is how it should be. To publish any records on a CIA asset is a FEDERAL CRIME!!!

      Do you get the message now?

      What do YOU think Obama and his Mommy were doing in Pakistan? Starting a Pakistani carpet importing business?

          The ultra-rich do not necessarily make jobs happen and pay the most taxes.

          • DaveH

            We could solve that dilemma, Karolyn, by having each adult pay the same taxes, as our founders intended. That concept was subverted in 1913 by those who knew what was necessary to expand the Federal Government to its present size.
            With the Federal Reserve Act, and the 16th and 17th Amendments, all the building blocks were set in place for Gargantuan Government.
            The Federal Reserve Act gave them a ready source of funds for out of control spending.
            The 16th Amendment gave them the tool for differential taxing necessary to use class warfare as a revenue raising tool.
            And the 17th Amendment allowed the allegiance of the Senate to be to the Federal Government rather than to the States as the Founders intended.
            You see, the super-rich and politicians are clever fellows.

          • Nadzieja Batki

            Have you created any jobs lately?
            It is the rich who create jobs. They were willing to create companies, products, technology and they became wealthy in the process.

          • Karolyn

            Nadja – No I haven’t created any jobs lately, but I have in the past, and as I have already said, I have worked for poor business people and for small nonprofits, which netted me little money but much satisfaction and a life lived on my terms rather than on some idea that I had to kill myself for some business I cared little about just for the almighty dollar.

          • DaveH

            If you truly have no interest in the “almighty dollar”, Karolyn, then why do you support people whose gaze is so narrowly focused on Other Peoples’ Money?

          • bob wire

            Hmm? Well I guess, ~ the Pharaoh created job too! More brick please!

            Cesar created jobs, more Christians please, we are running low.

            Peter the Great created jobs! Tax masters, farmers, miners and sailors, carpenters, metal smiths

            Adolph Hitler created jobs. soldiers, factory workers, tax maters, recovery and reclaim, police, guards, incarceration and disposal of people and their bodies employees. Warehouse workers, he gave everyone a job or killed them trying.

            even I create jobs ! Plumbers, electricians, Field Techs, domestic help, lawn service workers, mechanics, welders, bookkeepers,attorneys.

            I think it would be wise to be more actuate when we expressing ourselves.

            The wealthy create jobs if they so choose and the quality of those jobs is being left to depend solely on them it seems.

            I wouldn’t look to the wealthy for salvation if I were you. Their benevolence is limited. They have got their hands full lording over their money and trying to keep as much a possible. Someone is always trying to get it,friends, family or government or just plain thieves.

            There is not enough of the wealthy to offer the number of opportunities in demand today. That they have managed to corner, capture and control 60% of America’s wealth today due in part to laws that’s be put in place and there no laws other then paying taxes on it that’s required of them. it’s Good for them and bad for the rest.

            Go make yourselves a job, find a need and fill it. It’s not rocket surgery. Quite trying to be a house ni””er to the wealthy, it unbecoming and makes me sick to my stomach to watch play out as people behave like complaining Sea Gulls fighting over scraps someone has thrown out.

            We imprison ourselves with our fear and blindness. There is no way out! ~ you/me are going to die! until then, apply yourself and make yourself useful to someone, ~ they don’t have to be rich unless that is one of your own requirement. And if so, ~ I’ve got nothing for you. Take you happy assets on down the road.

      It’s not a matter of courage, Bill. They don’t want to impeach Obama. If Americans need to learn one thing, it’s that Politicians like their power and they like their perks. They will tell us whatever sweet sounding lies they can to keep them.

  • mark

    It has already happened. Haven’t you guys noticed! Obama has closed down every newspaper in America. He has shut down every independent television station. He cancelled the 2010 elections. Nancy Pelosi is still the Speaker of hte House. Everyone over 65 has been rounded up and put into death camps. I lost my parents. Obama’s secret security force executed them along with 55 million other seniors. There are no more old people in America. There are no more gun owners in America, either. Obama confiscated every single firearm in the United States. All protests have been prohibited. The U.S. Congress has been closed. Obama now rules through martial law. Those Tea Party demonstration you saw on TV were all staged, put on by Obama’s people. The Democratic Party has taken over every school system, university, town, county, and state government in America. We are now living a one-party state. The closing down of Fox News particulary outraged me – along with the execution of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham. And then of course there was the UN takeover of our entire U.S. military, and the UN military occupation of all fifty-one states (including Israel, of course) It has already happened. We are living now in the End of Days! Where have you all you people been?!… Perhaps living in a cuckoo clock, right wing, nutzo paranoid fantasyland? Where you actualLy BELIEVE all the crap and lies I wrote earlier in this post? And as for imperial presidency, how about George W. who started two undeclared, unconstitutional, massive wars, enacted the Patriot Act, illegal wiretaps, black ops, redactions, a new mercenary Blackwater military beholden only to him, government sanctioned torture at Abu Gharib, Guantanamo, and scores of other sites, the Sept 2008 $700 billion bank bail-out, the Dec 2008 auto companies bail-out? Didn’t he expand the imperial presidency just a tad with the aforementioned actions 2001-2009? I must be crazy though. None of that actually happened, only Obama’s treacherous destruction of America which is detailed in the earlier lines of this post. That is THE REAL TRUTH. I’ve lost my marbles. George W. was in fact a small government, limited-powers president. That is why there was not a single Tea Party protest against his adminstration. Oh and he was white too – and a Christian, God Bless Him. I almost forgot.

  • Norm

    The Founding Fathers believed that the Constitution would need to be revised and reworked to meet the changing needs of the country. They would be surprised to know that there hasn’t been another Constitutional Convention despite over two hundred years of history.

    Jefferson quotes:

    Let us provide in our constitution for its revision at stated periods… Each generation is as independent as the one preceding, as that was of all which had gone before. It has then, like them, a right to choose for itself the form of government it believes most promotive of its own happiness.1816
    Every constitution, then, and every law, naturally expires at the end of nineteen years. If it be enforced longer, it is an act of force, and not of right.
    Whatever be the Constitution, great care must be taken to provide a mode of amendment when experience or change of circumstances shall have manifested that any part of it is unadapted to the good of the nation.
    Nothing is more likely than that [the] enumeration of powers is defective. This is the ordinary case of all human works. Let us then go on perfecting it by adding by the way of amendment to the Constitution those powers which time and trial show are still wanting.
    We must be contented to travel on towards perfection, step by step. We must be contented with the ground which this Constitution will gain for us, and hope that a favorable moment will come for correcting what is amiss in it.
    Happy for us that when we find our constitutions defective and insufficient to secure the happiness of our people, we can assemble with all the coolness of philosophers and set it to rights, while every other nation on earth must have recourse to arms to amend or to restore their constitutions.

    • DaveH

      Interesting coming from a guy who supports people who want to ignore the Constitution or have it effectively rewritten according to the desires of unelected judges.

  • CanCan

    Aaah, we also cannot forget the two recent, Executive Orders beloved Imperial Obama (gag, choke, sputter) signed, that in essence, puts people on a “no buy” gun list, just as we have a “no fly list”. Obama said he would enact gun control under the radar, and, much like a dictator, completely ignores the rule of law and our Constitution that he so despises. Sure wish I could blatantly break the law, not get caught, and be rewarded for it. Oh, wait, I am not a politician. Ha, what was I thinking (insert sarcasm)? And well, since Obama is now our “hail dictator”, why not dismiss every last of one those spineless wimps called member of Congress, seize their pension funds (paid by us few still paying taxes), and have them stand at the back of the unemployment line like the rest of us? Since they are so willing to lay down and play dead, they may as well not bother showing up to pass more laws they are not going to bother reading anyway.

  • Joyce from Loris

    Great article, Mr. Livingston. You covered many great points, and gave excellent examples, including the Bush items. You didn’t, however, mention my favorite Bush item, which was he decided to give $1 million taxpayer’s dollars to buy Aids/HIV medication for the people of Africa. That’s $1 million PER DAY! People in our nation suffer from several diseases and ailments, yet he determined to send our money outside of our nation instead of focusing on our own. Obama is just a total MESS and has created a disaster in our nation. Our problem is this…. what do we do now? I, too, have tried to emails, phone calls and letters to my representatives, all to no avail. What do we do now? I have food stock piled, which is against the law, and water. I am prepared for a total shutdown, but how do get our country BACK? How do we get our freedoms BACK? How do we stop the massive breaking of our nation’s laws by the very LAWMAKERS? For three years, we have lived with a dark cloud hanging over our heads, in fear, and every glimmer of hope we get, like Arizona standing up against the Feds, gets dashed on the rocks. Every time we think something good is about to happen, someone does a “Mitch McConnell” deal. Is there absolutely no hope left for us? Many of my friends are leaving America, claiming it is not our country anymore. They think the muslims, mexicans, and all the other people from other countries have moved here and destroyed our nation. So they are leaving. I tell them they are only doing what they think others have done. I don’t know the answers, and just about at a loss of hope, not for myself, but for my kids and my grandchildren.

    • Karolyn

      ” I have food stock piled, which is against the law,”

      What? Where is it against the law?

      • Joyce from Loris

        Hoarding is not against a federal law, you will find the laws of each state listed under Public Safety laws or titles. Example, in Hawaii, it is against the law to hoard more than a weeks worth of needed provisions. You can find it under Title 10 of Public Safety. It is located after legislation on militias, state guard troops, etc. You have to dig deep to find these stupid laws. People do not realize just how many hidden laws there are because they are passed with no knowledge by the taxpayers.

        • Karolyn

          Is it an old law like the ones still on the books about it being against the law for a man and woman to live together without benefit of marriage? Hawaii might have that law because there food supplies are limited, and they are protecting against certain people controlling the food.

          • DaveH

            And that is why our Freedom is so tenuous. Too many people willing to assume Government is looking out for our own good.

          • Joyce from Loris

            Karolyn, that is why you are considered naive, and worse, a complete trough feeder. I have a relative in my family that receives food stamps. She gets so much FREE food, that she is stock piling food. She can’t eat all the food she gets for FREE. We have all read your comments, we all know that your receive food stamps yourself, you receive a pell grant. We know that you are a trough feeder. No, this is not an old law. It is currently on the book, not only in Hawaii, but most of the other states as well, and was placed there by the DEMOCRATS, who want to control the actual air that we breathe.

            We need to do something about that. The legislative powers were given to Congress, and for good reason — to prevent dictatorship. We need to stop the Presidents from usurping their powers.

          • Karolyn

            Very interesting! Basically, it’s like in the movies when after a disaster, there are people who hoard stuff and then gouge everybody else. The government’s intent with any kind of hoarding edict would be to insure the general welfare.

          • DaveH

            Sure, you just keep telling yourself that, Grasshopper.
            So, it would be better for the disaster that you speak of if nobody had any extra food to “gouge” people with?

    • professor

      Diversity, Multiculturalism and Political Correctness, destroyed the country that we once knew! These are the “tools” used by radicals to dupe Americans into accepting things which otherwise would never have been “acceptable.”

      These tools allowed radicals a foothold in government, and we see the results. When illegal immigration was not PC, real Americans, held the majority vote. Now, one-in-six residents (notice I did not say citizens) are Hispanic. If the flood of aliens is not stopped, the population will reflect that one-in-four will be Hispanic. Add to that the wildly increasing numbers of other foreigners, including muslims. The government encourages all these people to vote and go on the welfare rolls. A muslim is allowed four wives. When in American, one wife is declared for welfare benefits, and the other three (dependants) are “family members.” All four women have babies that go on welfare… Is it any wonder this country is no longer “America” for Americans!

      When critics claim that we deserve an Imperial Administration because “we” voted for it, they are mistaken. Real Americans didn’t elect this dictator with the majority vote! This American-hating government is doing exactly as planned, flooding America with people that have no allegiance to her, no respect for her Laws or Constitution, and no respect for our way of life!

      The Constitution was written for “a moral people.” It was written with the idea that a “Citizen Government” would do what was considered, best for Americans. Even with that assumption, the Constitution still gives the people a way to defend against a tyrannical government. It is with that intent, the Constitution allows for the citizens to bear arms…. No amount of letter, faxes, or phones calls will initiate change, because the Imperial Administration doesn’t care what you think, they really don’t need your support! As long as government has the powers of Executive Order, and Marshal Law, at it disposal.. their power is indisputable! Until this “absolute power” is put in check, Americans will labor under the will of any self-proclaimed dictator!

  • Donald

    Do we need to vote everyone out of office, perhaps that’s the only way to purge the system and get a new fresh congress,and senate. Yes I know, it will take at least two elections, but I think the first will really rattle the cages.
    We really need to pay close attention to the constitution, and follow it. There can be no “exceptions”!
    Foe the first time in my lifetime(and I’m old) I see and feel a swelling movement, of anti-government in this country and it is for the better!
    God bless America.

    • DaveH

      There are a few who get it, like Ron Paul. So let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water.

  • Charlie Tall

    I have often wondered what would happen if the economy was interrupted. In particular, if one or more of several eventualities came about.

    For example, what would happen if social security, unemployment, and welfare checks were delayed or stopped? What if the food stamp program was suspended? What would happen if fuel prices rose so high that independent truckers decided to “slow-drive”?

    Either one of these possibilities would have an adverse effect on the flow of food and other necessities to many of the people – citizens all – who for one reason or another rely on the government for their support.

    When a person misses a meal, the economy suddenly becomes a personal concept.

    Will we see crowds rioting and looting? Will we see gangs leaving the ghettoes, roaming the suburban and rural areas, and invading homes in search of food? Will we see the Interstate system crippled by parked semis or blockades of trucks driving at low speeds while blocking all lanes?

    This leads me to the question: when will the government step in and declare that things have gotten so out of hand that the Constitution is suspended, that martial law is now the law of the land?

    Think this is all a fantasy? Just recall Obama’s threat to interrupt the issuance of social security checks next month.

    Has anyone heard him suggest that all federal workers be required to take a week’s furlough every month? Has Obama suggested a top-to-bottom review of federal employees with the aim of eliminating the unnecessary ones? Has he even hinted that he would stop subsidies to ethanol producers, bee keepers, or corn growers? How about interrupting payments to the so-called black farmers who were allegedly discriminated against by the Department of Agriculture? Has he said anything about stopping the failed stimulus program?

    Has he increased domestic oil production? Has he moved to increase the utilization of coal? Has he pushed for more nuclear plants?

    Or has he instead continued to increase the size and power of the government while attacking the economy, destroying jobs and businesses, continuing to reward his supporters, and promising to starve the citizens if they don’t give him his way?

    I fear that the worst is yet to come, and that we have only begun to experience the evil in the soul of Barack Hussein Obama…if he has a soul.

    • rulken

      If Obama with holds the SS checks then he is in contempt of not following his oath as president for not following the constitution, and will by law be impeached!
      There is enough money that comes in every month to pay the nations debt (only 9%) plus SS,and medicare,and medicaid, and children’s health insurance, and the defense budget, and the defense budget, and the federal law enforcement budget, and the immigration budget, and all veterans benefits, and the response to natural disasters budget.
      So what is this liar, Obama telling the elderly to terrify them for ? it’s a scare tactic pure and simple, he has absolutely no ethical morals what-so-ever!!!!

      • JimRed

        “…Obama…will by law be impeached!”

        Not likely to happen. The Democrat Party and their flunkies in the media will support him no matter what, and the Republicans are too terrified of the resulting riots and being called the R word. Two options remain. Defeating him at the polls, or the Second Amendment option.

    This is the most astute, complete and comprehensive assessment of the Obama-Bush, evolving dictatorship that I have ever seen put forward. This article should be required reading for all Americans.

    I have been telling people of the northern persuasion, for years, that the “war between the states” was an illegal episode in American history and the Constitution, up ’till 1861, gave any state the right to leave the the union, and that the, so called, amendment that was passed, after the outbreak of hostilities, did not pass with two-thirds of the states ratifying it, since none the break away states were included in the process.

    Please keep up the good fight, you not only educate but also motivate!

  • Bill

    It has been my belief all along that “total collapse” is what Mr. Obama wants. This will give him the reason/excuse to reign in total Socialism/Marxism and look like “Underdog” and save the day. Why else would you implement crushing economic policies, spend like no tomorrow(and there isn’t), and totally fail to address unemployment, the debt,rising food prices, high fuel cost ect., etc.? IT IS ALL IN THE PLAN! Anybody else see it that way?

      Oh, without a doubt. In fact he is even worse than the AntiChrist. The historical figure most associated with the AntiChrist label is Adolf Hitler. But Hitler was a boy scout compared to Barak Obama, as everyone knows. Hitler after all deliberately started a war that killed 60 million people. Within that carnage he gathered up an executed or worked to death some 15 million civilians, mostly Jews and Slavs. Now let’s examine the far worst crimes of Barak Obama. He enacted legislation to give greater access to health care for poor, working class and lower-middle class Americans who lack health care coverage. And oh yes, in an even more dastardy, atrocious act, Obama is also supporting the Energy department’s plan to move towards more energy-efficient lightbulbs. So there you have it! I think anyone can make a sound judgment here. It’s a no brainer! One guy, Hitler deliberately launched a war that killed 60 million people including the rounding up and murder of 6 million Jews and millions of Slavs. The other guy, Obama tried to increase health care access to the poor and the working class and even worse made Americans change their lightbulbs! Obviously Obama is the far worse criminal! Any sensible reader of this blog, anyway, will certainly come to this conclusion. Oh wait there maybe an even worst candidate for the AntiChrist than even Obama! Martin Luther King! He did things even more horrendous than Hitler’s slaughter of millions! He worked to give equal rights and voting rights to African American citizens. Can you think of a more horrible, evil, monstrous crime. Oh but then again, he didn’t make us change our lightbulbs! Even MLK never stooped to such an outrage against humanity far, far worse than the Holocaust and the starting of World War II. I can even say the worlds they are just so horrible … he …he… wants us to….to change….to change….our lightbulbs! Oh My God, NO, NO, NO, what kind of a MONSTER FROM HELL ARE YOU, BARAK OBAMA?!!!- AND YOU WANT TO GIVE MY SICK UNEMPLOYED BROTHER HEALTH CARE TOO?!!!!! NO, NO, NO, NO! YOU FIEND! YOU SATAN!!! GOD WILL PUNISH YOU FOR THAT!!! HE WILL, HE WILL!!!! GOD WILL PARDON HITLER FOR HIS SMALL FAULTS, BUT HE WILL CONDEMN YOU TO THE FIRES OF HELL FOREVER, BARAK OBAMA!!! YOU ARE THE ANTICHRIST! YES, YOU ARE, YOU ARE!!!

        Hitler was a Socialist.
        The Government can not give anything that it hasn’t taken from somebody else. And the net result of their “giving and taking” is that people work less, and produce less. Thus we have fewer goods which leads to more poverty, more starvation. It has happened in country after country. Experience “hath shewn” that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
        For the non-Liberals, and even some Liberals (those who still have a few brain cells left), here is reality:

        Note that the countries with the biggest Governments live in abject poverty. This is the reality of Liberal Fantasy.

        • mark

          This is true in some cases but not in all. Some countries with very large social welfare gov’ts and high taxes live very well – Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, France, England, etc. They have high living standards. Some of these countries have higher life expectancies, educational levels, better health care, etc than the United States. So it does not always hold true that bigger gov’t and higher taxes are bad for a nation’s citizens. At the same time there are certainly many cases of bloated gov’ts and high taxes in the Third World whose people suffer terrible poverty.

          • Bob

            The newly socialistic countries in Europe have stagnated for the past few decades under their socialism. They were thriving free market economies, not now. We are stagnating now under our big government socialism. When we were a free market economy, the USA economy grew by an average of around 10% in the 1800s. Then we got an income tax and big government and we have gone downhill.

            Every time a country gets a big government it goes downhill. Government does not produce anything. It takes from the producers and gives to those who don’t produce. Taxes discourage production. Welfare encourages laziness and unemployment. An economy grows when it produces. It shrinks when it doesn’t produce.

            Today we are seeing the results of socialism in the USA. Huge debt, loss of jobs, big government and loss of freedom. If we don’t change and become what our country was founded on, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, we will lose our country.

            Great article Bob, thank you.

            It takes time, Mark, for people to run out of other peoples’ money. But it is inevitable.
            Pick the link I supplied in the above comment. Then pick the individual country names and do some reading. You will be surprised to find that many of the countries you referenced aren’t as Socialistic as you think. Switzerland and Canada (from your list) are both economically Freer than we are.
            Also if you read carefully, and do some thinking, you will see that many of their current paths are unsustainable (spending more than they’re receiving in revenues). Germany, for instance, spends 43.7% of their GDP while only bringing in 40.6% of GDP. This means they are borrowing the rest (3.1% of GDP each year). Sweden spends 52.5% of GDP while bringing in only 47.9% of GDP. This means they are borrowing 4.6% of GDP each year. How long can they continue doing that?

          Wrong Dave,Hitler never was a socialist he belonged on the far right.According to the FBI reports, all Fascist and Nazi organizations are right wing,not left wing. A few years ago,I wrote to the American Nazi Party and ask were they on the right or left? They said they were on the right and were conservative in beliefs. In a Playboy interview, the late George Rockwell also said the same thing.He wa a right wing conservative.He was also a supporter of Gen. Douglas Macarthur for president.

          • DaveH

            Don’t tell me I’m wrong when you don’t know what you’re talking about. Nazi is short for National Socialist German Workers Party.

            True Conservatives believe in Freedom, Miner. That is the least amount of Government necessary to protect people from the force and fraud of others.
            Many of those who have co-opted the label of Conservative are not Freedom lovers at all. People can call themselves anything they want (unfortunately).

          • DaveH

            The article you linked to is so far off, I couldn’t stand reading it.
            For one thing they said “But socialism requires worker ownership and control of the means of production”. That is flat wrong. Socialism is “Government” ownership of the means of production.
            And both world wars were under Democrat Presidents (Wilson and Roosevelt). So don’t tell me about peaceful Democrats. True Conservatives (such as those who followed Jefferson) don’t believe in foreign entanglements.

            That is crap.The Nationalist Socialist workers Party was a name only.It is classified as an extreme rightwing party.Called up the American Nazi party up, ask them,or better yet, go on the internet.The late William f.Buckely Jr.said Fascism was the Rightwing Conservatives’ bastard brother.

            Difference Between Communism and fascism
            • Categorized under Ideology,Miscellaneous,Politics | Difference Between Communism and fascism

            Communism vs Fascism

            Though some people may term communism and fascism as the two sides of the same coin, they are different in their ideology and other aspects. Communism is a socio economic system that stands for a class less, state less and an egalitarian society. Fascism is an ideology that tries to bring together radical and authoritarian nationalism.

            Fascism became popular between 1919 and 1945 and the term has become an epithet for all bad things. Fascism originally referred to the Fascists under Benito Mussolini. Communism became popular after the Bolshevik Revolution of Russia in 1917. The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels is considered to be the bible of communism. The authoritative document of Fascism is “The Doctrine of Fascism.

            Communism stands for a stateless society where all are equal. No one is rich or poor in a communist system. In Communism, it is the community that holds the production and the major resources. On the other hand, Fascism pertains to state and it considers state on top of everything. In fascism the state is all embracing. For the fascists, no human values exist outside the state. Fascism believes that everything is within the State and nothing is above the State or outside the State or against the State. Fascism believes in nationalism (includes economic nationalism), corporatism (includes economic planning), militarism and totalitarianism (dictatorship and social interventionism).

            The Communists think globally where as the Fascists think only in a national level.

            In communism, the state is the custodian of everything and it is the state that owns everything. On the other hand, in Fascism, the state has control over everything. In simple words, Communism means state ownership and fascism means state control.

            Fascism is derived from Italian fascio meaning bundle. Communism comes from French communisme, meaning common.

            1.Communism is a socio economic system that stands for a class less, state less and an egalitarian society. Fascism is an ideology that tries to bring together radical and authoritarian nationalism.
            2.Fascism became popular between 1919 and 1945. Communism became popular after the Bolshevik Revolution of Russia in 1917.

            Your article was based solely on word games, Miner. Look up the general definition of Socialism. I’m not talking about the definition from one obscure website. Without their own pet definition, the rest of their article falls apart.
            Do you think the Communist regimes were left-wing or right-wing? Yet, they were extremely violent and heartless.
            How many right-wingers do you know who support Big Government? Then tell me how many left-wingers do you know who support Big Government? There is no contest. And Government is force. And you know that I don’t support the military state. But I especially don’t support Force.

            And Miner,
            Your classless utopia where everybody is equal does not exist, and never has. Even the word utopia means ‘no place’.

            Russia, China, and Cuba should have proved that to you. There is always force involved in the vain attempt at equality, because peoples’ efforts are never equal and never will be.

            Libertarians are just as bad, Miner? Maybe you could elaborate on such accusation?
            We believe in a society of voluntary choice and voluntary contracts, where people control their own bodies and their own property. That doesn’t sit well with Union types because the only way they can take more from their employers than they are really worth is through violence and coercion. Please explain to me why that is any more moral than just stealing other peoples’ money?

          • DaveH

            Unionism, like Liberalism, only works until you run out of other peoples’ money, Miner.
            I am sure curious as to how you justify disliking company owners. What do they do to you? Do they force you to work? Do they take your money? Please explain to me why the Force of Unionists is more morally correct than whatever it is that company officers do to you?
            When you spend your money, do you like somebody else telling you how to spend it? Yet, you and your Union buddies want to tell company owners how to spend their money? How do you justify that moral gap?

          • eddie47d

We are prepared. I just hate the thought of turning on our young soldiers..but, perhaps THEY will join us! THEY are the ones we need to write letters and emails to!

  • DAve

    An old article, but one worth reading now before 2012…
    I forward this as received, but without comment.
    Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening.

    The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised “Meet The Press’.
    From Sunday’s 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised “Meet the Press” THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
    General Bill Ginn’ USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
    The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…
    During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It”.
    ‘Senator’ Obama replied:
    “As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides”. “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”

    Obama continued: “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – - – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ……..”

    When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations ofIslam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.

    “Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America ”

    Yes, you read it right.
    I, for one, am speechless!!!

    Dale Lindsborg , Washington Post


    • mark

      Your quote on Obama’s statements on the flag and the national anthem are total fabrications. Obama never said them on Meet the Press or anywhere else. The quotes come from a conservative comedian, John Semmens, and were for comical effect. They are from Semmens’ Semi News blog which is a satirical blog like the Onion that is full of made-up quotes. The fact that you would fall for such nonsense is very telling regarding your own intelligence and narrow-minded biases. The idea that Obama could have ever mouthed such assinine and ludicrous statements without bringing down the whole media and American people upon him and losing the election is simply preposterous. These quotes have long been exposed as urban legends on numerous sites. But that you just copied and pasted them verbatim without ever considering their authenticity speaks volumes about your warped, Kool-Aid drinking, mindset. You will swallow hook, line, and sinker anything that the Crazed Right puts out there. Like if is on-line, it must be true! Please.

    America, your days are numbered ans it won’t be long now !!!!!

  • Alex

    There are two ways to handle the most immediate problem. 1) We can follow the Declaration of Independence, shoot the man, and install better government.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

    Or 2) We can appeal to the House to impeach him for breaking his oath, since every president, upon taking office, swears an oath to faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and to uphold and defend the Constitution to the best of their ability. It’s possible this might fall under perjury, but a lawyer would have to figure that out. Since Obama has not only NOT done the things promised by his oath, but has in fact tossed aside the Constitution and the rights of the citizen, he is an oath breaker, and I can guarantee that it’s likely to be felonious.

    Constitution, Article I, §2 – The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.

    Constitution, Article II, §4 – The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    • JimRed

      In this case, we do not need to “institute new government”, only to return ours to constitutional principles.

      • Alex

        Fair enough. But in a manner of speaking, our government has morphed into something other than what it was intended to be, which is what happens to all governments. Restoring it means removing what currently exists in order to establish a new one according to the original principles.

        • DaveH

          Is this the same Alex we all know and love?
          That seems like an inconsistent statement if you are. Are you trying to trick us? If not, good for you.
          But the reality is that completely scrapping things and starting over is not very likely to result in a good outcome. Even here, we had a rare opportunity for maximum freedom in this country, and we let it slip through our hands in just a few generations. Even some of the original Patriots became Freedom haters and Big Government lovers. That we got as far as we did was largely due to a few very educated and principled people who resisted the temptation to establish their own kingdoms in America. But the quest for power is strong among leaders. That’s why they gravitate to leadership. People who are respectful of the Freedom of others don’t tend to want to be in leadership positions.
          I think the Constitution was a beautiful attempt at maximizing freedom, but it did have a few flaws. Before we could even have a glimmer of hope to better it, we would have to launch a tremendous educational effort to degauss all the propagandized minds out there. Otherwise, we might end up with a much worse situation than we already have (yes, it could get a whole lot worse).

        As a prior CIA asset, Obama’s history of:

        1) Birth
        2) Selective Service
        3) Education
        4) salary – IRS information

        MUST, by law, be hidden and obfuscated by the CIA.

        The CIA has NO CHOICE in this matter – they are ORDERED BY LAW to hide all of Obama’s records. The BC from Hawaii was INSERTED into the state record repository by CIA assets. Likewise with his SS records and his academic history – why do you think that he thinks there are 57 states?

        It is the CIA’s patriotic and lawful DUTY to hide all information and history about Obama and other members of Obama’s family who were closely associated with the CIA including:

        1) His Mother
        2) His Grandmother
        3) His Daddy (flown from Kenya to Hawaii via CIA flight)

        Does THAT answer your question?

        Who CARES where Obama was born?

        Obama’s CIA and Mossad contacts should WORRY US ALL TO DEATH!!!

    Obama is certainly not a Nelson Mandela, but he may very well turn out to be the next Edie Amin. The absolute and most mind boggling aspect of Obama’s unopposed reign, is the trance-like state everyone appears to be in. No one has initiated impeachment proceedings, yet Obama has arrogantly committed numerous impeachable acts. He was handed the keys to this country, and has since been allowed to come and go, destroy and pillage as he pleases. Amazingly, there is no one willing to do anything about it. However, everyone is talking about it. Incredible! Who has that kind of power over people but the devil himself?

    • Alex

      Not that I personally advocate starting a revolution, but just to say so . . . “talk” is how revolutions always start. When the injustice rises to a point of being intolerable, people start to gripe. The griping gets louder and louder, and it starts to spread.

      The revolution will start when the welfare folks are yanked from the government teat. Riots will break out among the poor. Organization will result among the intelligent. The government will posture. Then someone will fire a shot. It’s always one shot that starts it.

      • Ken Ambrose

        The folks on the public teat are the folks that got Obama elected.
        And once he is gone and the teat runs dry they are going to go looking for some place to satisfy their needs and it will not be
        through a job.

          I agree whole-heartedly. When the well dries up, there will be change. As long as the printing press continues, there will not.

      President George W. Bush committed far more impeachable acts – two massively deployed undeclared, unconstitutional wars, the use of a private military, Blackwater, the government sanction of torture, the Patriot Act usurpation of our liberties through wiretapes, black ops, reading of emails, forcing banks to give the government informaton on citizens’ individual acccouts, the massive unconstitutional bank bail-out of Bush and Paulsen, the unconstitutional bail-out of the automakers begun by Bush, on and on the list goes but not a single conservative called for Bush’s impeachment because he was a Republican, a conservative, and WHITE. Obama doesn’t fit either of these three categories so you call for his impeachment. But not one of you hypocritical, racist cowards said one word to condemn Bush NOT ONE WORD despite his egregious violationS of the Constitution chronicled above.

      • George

        It’s about time the idiots stopped this nonsense about “undeclared wars” under Bush. There is no specific language required for a declaration of war. When Congress gave him the authority to take action by whatever means he deemed appropriate, that WAS A DECLARATION OF WAR.

  • George

    Bob, I realize that at heart you’re a Johnny Reb, but I cannot tolerate your attempt to rewrite history. Had it not been for firing on Ft. Sumpter, I’m fairly certain the Civil War would not have occurred. Once they fired on what was clearly Federal property (it’s removal could very possibly have been negotiated), there was no longer any possibility of a peaceful solution. BTW: I had relatives from near where I grew up in Indiana who fought in the Civil War — care to guess which side (not a trick question, the answer is obvious).

    • Bob Livingston

      Dear George,

      You write: “…I cannot tolerate your attempt to rewrite history.” Yet you fail to point out where I “rewrote” history. Please enlighten me.

      You write: “Had it not been for firing on Ft. Sumpter, (sic) I’m fairly certain the Civil War would not have occurred. Once they fired on what was clearly Federal property (it’s removal could very possibly have been negotiated), there was no longer any possibility of a peaceful solution.”

      Negotiations over Ft. Sumter began shortly after South Carolina’s secession on Dec. 20, 1860. South Carolina believed Ft. Sumter, located in Charleston Harbor, was S.C. property. It was common practice for the states to assume control of Federal arsenals and forts because the states believed the ultimate sovereignty of the property remained in the hands of the states and therefore the property reverted back to the states when they left the Union they had voluntarily joined. Of course, you can understand that allowing a fortification controlled by another country to control an essential harbor would not be in S.C.’s best interests. Presidents Buchanan and Lincoln refused to turn the fort over to S.C., and in fact, Lincoln goaded S.C. into firing on the fort, an enterprise commented on by historians Bruce Catton and Shelby Foote, (I suggest you read their works for an understanding of the Civil War and the events that precipitated it that you do not receive through public education) and many Northern newspapers at the time. As the Buffalo Daily Courier editorialized, “The affair at Fort Sumter … has been planned as a means by which the war feeling at the North should be intensified.”—The Real Lincoln, pp. 119-120.

      Best wishes,

      P.S. I really don’t care to guess.

      • George

        I have read them, thank you. Also, I had a reasonably good education in the public school system prior to the decline of educational standards and the introduction of social concerns which replaced proper education (supplemented by college, seminary and graduate school). You and I are probably of approximately the same age (I’ll be 39 on my next birthday). You have not altered my opinion one iota, and I continue to consider Lincoln to have been one of our truly great Presidents.

        • Bob Livingston

          Dear George,

          If you can ignore that Lincoln ordered the murder of civilians, declared martial law, shut down convening State legislatures, arrested State politicians and journalists, closed newspapers, suspended habeas corpus, seized vast amounts of property without compensating the owners, imprisoned Northern citizens without trial, conducted a war without Congressional approval, ignored orders of the Supreme Court, consented in — and encouraged — the commission of war crimes by his generals, and oversaw the illegal creation of the State of West Virginia, caused the death of between 650,000 and 700,000 people, plus, believed that whites were superior to blacks, then by all means venerate him.

          By the way, I have a few years on you. I was writing my newsletter before you were born.

          Best wishes,

          • George

            In your dreams, my friend. Did you ever hear of Jack Benny? Then there was the little matter of Shay’s Rebellion. That was resolved without much difficulty, but it did require the use of force.

        • bob wire

          The Civil War was predicated on many things and not just one. The firing on Sumpter was simply opening play and more symbolic. It was time for people to rise and made their position known and put their game face on. Is you or is you ain’t my baby?

          The mood of the nation and a vote of “no confidence” on the Senate floor by southern statesmen walking out all but sealed the fate of the nation. We were at an impasse of the highest order with years in the making getting there.

  • Brian

    Dear Bob

    I am surprised that your article is so anti Lincoln, perhaps the most important President in the history of the United. It shows you have not done your homework, but are speaking from limited understanding of history.

    The Confederacy was inspired by a letter from Pope Pius IX to Jefferson Davis whom he called Son of the church to secede and break the Union. Read your history, not the rewritten junk history in text books today, but the manuscripts from that day. Also The Jesuits had him murdered after the war ended and at St. John’s University in Minnesota they celebrated his assassination 4 hours before he was actually shot to death.

    Read Your history my man. It is not the international Jewish bankers who are controlling everything, they are just greedy puppets of the Vatican cabal who knows how to manipulate that greed.

    Every international financial meeting has been controlled by the Vatican itself. The Secretary of State of the Vatican sets the agenda for those meetings. (read Windswept house by Malachi Martin who was poisoned to death after publishing the book.)

    If you will notice the first G5 had six signatures, the sixth was the Secretary of State of the Vatican City.

    Who owns the gold? The Vatican has been collecting it for more than a thousand years. She has the majority of the worlds gold, and the golden rule says “She which has the gold rules”.

    One day you will see that you have been duped into believing there are some all powerful men who are controlling everything, However you will one day find out it is the Vatican who controls the political stage of the world.

    Revelation 14 tells us that the United States is the military arm doing her bidding, and giving power to the Beast, and Russia will one day destroy her with an atomic bomb (read Revelations 17 and 18)

    Brian K.

    • Alex

      I’m sure there’s some small amount of truth to what you are saying. I’ve always found, as a general rule, that most conspiracy theories grow and blossom from a small seed of truth.

      However, there was much more to the Civil War than Vatican control. If you’ve read YOUR history books, you’d know that. The things Bob wrote in the article about deeds committed by Lincoln are quite correct. And the war itself was instigated by tarrifs and embargos, which congress implemented to prevent the southern states from trading with anyone besides the north. Unfortunately, the north had prices, taxes, etc. so high that it was cost prohibitive for the south to purchase their products.
      Very much like our current situation, it was an economic stranglehold that forced the south to take up arms. Not the Pope.

      Though I’ll at least say that if such a document as you mentioned does exist, I will personally, at this present time, give it no more credence than spiritual advice from a spiritual leader.

      Dear Brian,

      More cuckoo clock, conspiracy theory, nuttiness. What a level of mentality. So now it is the Catholic Church who is secretly behind all the world’s problems. Does this website contain nothing but religious and racial bigotry? Thank God virtually all of you are just a fringe element far outside the mainstream. Of course Livingston himself is just a confederate birther, still fighting the Civil War. If he hates Lincoln, our greatest president, than Obama should consider it an honor to be hated by him. Does anyone recall that Lincoln ended the greatest disgrace in American history that made us monstrous hypocrites for 90 years to the whole world – the horrific institution of human slavery. As Samuel Johnson famously wrote after reading the Declaration of Independence “Why is it that we hear the loudest yelps for liberty from the drivers’ of slaves?” Until Lincoln ended this abomination, the United States was the laughing stock of the world. The supreme global hypocrite, proclaiming one great principle, that of freedom, while practicing its direct opposite every waking day at home for some 90 years. Oh but during a wartime emergency with enemy troops attacking Washington DC, Lincoln on occasion suspended habeus corpus, arrested Southern traitors, and excecuted Southern spies. This was a war for the life of the nation and he did so under his powers as commander in chief. But critical newspapers continued to print during the war and elections were held in 1862 and 1864. So much for this montrous dictatorhip of Lincoln. How many dictators stand for election in the middle of a civil war? He certainly never ranked too high on the global dictatorship scale. What compared to Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Kim Il Sung, Edi Amin, the Shah, Somoza, Batista, Trujillo, Papa Doc, Pinochet? For all his faults, Lincoln is one of humanity’s greatest heroes and the most globally admired president in our history. Trying to turn him into a monster is a joke and speaks volumes about the mindset of this webpage.

    • bob wire

      Hmm? Brian, many, many years ago, I learned to accept the fact that Lincoln and his administration is not look on kindly by serious ideological conservatives.

      Accept it as you might expect a duck to quack.

      The true reasons why are not up for discussion though they might offer many.

      History is written by men (or women), Brian. As such it is fallible. The best we can do is read as much as possible and then determine from that which makes most sense. An “Honest Abe” who came from a mercantilist background, ordered the deaths of 600,000+ men (including more than 5,000 civilians) does not make sense to me, knowing politicians like I do.

    It’s all in the ‘grand plan’, the mulatto Mussolini is in office because ‘we the people’ put him there. This is a partial reprint from an article on Economic Rant:

    America is now a Marxist, welfare police state, because the voters freely CHOSE this form of government. Blame the voters; the politicians are only a symptom of the disease. People always get the government they damned well deserve. The ten hallmarks of a totalitarian welfare Marxist police state:

    1)Wage war on everyone you can without any reason or justification at all. merely by presidential decree. No Congressional approval needed.
    Kill innocent men, women, babies, children, the elderly, anyone you can. Start new wars at whim.

    2)Have a worthless “fiat” currency backed by nothing. Have a privately owned Zionist Federal Reserve bank that isn’t federal and has no reserves. Keep counterfeiting “money” and calling it “stimulus”.

    3)Keep talking about “globalization” instead of nationalism. This is the siren song of the One Worlders. A one world government of slaves with 1% running the show.

    4)Keep spending endless money you don’t have on Marxist welfare handout programs. Always keep the great unwashed masses dependent on government for everything they need. Keep this up until the entire systems collapses and people are starving in the streets. Promote class warfare and class envy constantly.

    5)End all civil liberties, end freedom of speech, take all the guns away. The final step is Clinton’s international Internet censorship plan. You cannot have free speech and other civil liberties in a police state. The Internet is the last bastion of freedom. This will end.

    6)Keep taxing everyone to death in every possible way in a futile attempt to pay for the endless welfare and entitlement programs. Tax anything and everything like they do in Europe. Tax the productive more than anyone else, and give that to the unproductive.

    7)Use “global warming” as the excuse to pass Cap and Trade and curtail all energy, especially oil, gas, and coal. Promote worthless windmills, solar, and biofuels. There is no energy crisis, and never was. We have almost limitless amounts of oil, gas, coal, and nuclear power. We have a government problem, not an energy crisis.

    8)Keep brainwashing the children in the government miseducation centers, and then in the state universities. Keep them so dumbed down and so stupid they don’t know which way is up anymore. The public (i.e. government) schools turn out brain dead little sheeple. The private schools don’t do much better.

    9)Abandon all traditional values, all morals and character, and especially the family as the center of society. Promote every form of immoral and degenerate acts as good.

    10)Divert the attention of the sheeple with endless sports, celebrities, and other bread and circus programs. It worked for Caesar in Rome and it’s working just as well here.

    IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO WINS THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION! There is only one party in the country- Republicrats.

    We have a one party system. The phony talk show conservative hosts tell you the Republicans can save us in 2012 if we just “defeat Obama”. Right now that means Socialist Romney or Neocon Perry. It doesn’t make a bit of difference which of those three win the election. None whatsoever. The media chooses the president. The media always chooses the president. The media chose Obama. The sheeple don’t think. They let the media make all their decisions. The One Worlders own the media except for the Internet. Soon that freedom will be over.

    Keep prepping folks, do the best you can for very bad times ahead.

    Well, they have you all doing what they want. Fighting among yourselves, believing “your” party is the good one. Arguing that the democrats are bad, the republicans are bad, whatever. Figure it out. The current system in place is designed to operate regardless of which party is in so called control. I think any temporary relief we see in taxes, cost of living, etc. are designed to make everyone relax again, keep producing revenue, and then in four to eight years they tighten the screws again. The periods of “better times”, and ” worse times”, are by design and easy to see if you look.
    They are changing the laws, taking away civil liberties because we are able to communicate so well, and are generally more aware than in the past. The powers that be are concerned about an unhappy society, that can bear arms and easily move around the country, or leave the country at will. Keep arguing, keep shouting “we” are right, “you” are wrong. That is just what they want you to do. You are all acting like govt. trained “sheeple”.

    • Alex

      This is part of Keynesian economics. It doesn’t matter how much you spend, or on what, so long as spending continues. Keynes promoted the idea that a healthy economy is one that is fluid and moving. When the buying stops, the economy is failing.

      So the politicians are likely just following the advice of economists on staff who promotoe the Keynesian school of economics.

      Unfortunately, it doesn’t work, and economists like Hazlitt have long since demonstrated that Keynes was a monkey.

    Bob Livingston, you seem to be re-writting history with distorted facts. Why cast so much aspeersion on democrats and its lineage. Are you social critic or an Obama hater. Does your brilliant background not tell you about the simple workings of ECONOMICS and its relationship with Governance. What is wrong with a debt ceiling or are you pretending not to know that Americas Economy is built wholly on credit. Can u abandon partisan politics and advise Obama the best way to get out of the dark economic logjam that America has found itself. It will be stupid for Obama to come and tell the public that i didnt cause it and met it so, but he wont do it because governance is a continous process. Why dwell so much about what Obama and Lincoln has done to America.
    You should grow up and by so doing,earn the respect that people like us have for you, or come out and tell the public if you are fighting a war of words and ideology with Obama and his crews

      Don’t make yourself look like an idiot. His facts are correct. It’s not an attack on the Democratic party. Lincoln deserved the bullet he got. He was a traitor to the Constitution and to the American people. The only good thing he managed to do (freeing the slaves) can’t even be fully credited to his cause, because the world in general was leaning towards an anti-slavery policy, and Lincoln used that sentiment to give his war legitimacy and prevent interference from other nations. It was years into the war before he even did it.

      So read some history books before you run off at the mouth.

    Click on the link to watch the video “Illegal Obama propped up by congress” then scroll on down to view the highlights.

    ATTEMPT 1.) JUN 11 2003 – democRAT House member Vic Snyder
    introduced HJR 59 in the 108th Congress. The
    intent of the bill was to implement a Constitutional
    Amendment to allow a citizen of the United States,
    who has been a citizen for at least 35 years and
    who has been a resident within the U.S. for at least
    14 years, to be eligible to hold the office as
    President of the United States. (POTUS)

    ATTEMPT 2.) SEP 03 2003 – Representative John Conyers introduced
    HJR 67 another Constitutional Amendment proposal;
    making a person who has been a citizen of the United
    States for at lest 20 years eligible to hold the
    office of the (POTUS President of the United States.

    ATTEMPT 3.) FEB 25 2004 – Republican Senator Don Nickels attempted
    to counter the growing democRAT onslaught of attempts
    to remove the NATURAL BORN citizen requirement to be
    the (POUTS) by introducing the senate bill 2128

    ATTEMPT 4.) SEP 15 2004 – Another Constitutional Amendment HJR 104
    is introduced which would attempt to change the
    definition and requirements to be the POTUS; to allow
    and NON-NATIVE BORN persons, who have held U.S.
    citizenship for at least 20 years and who are
    otherwise eligible to hold such office.

    ATTEMPT 5.) JAN 04 2005 – Another Constitutional Amendment during
    the 109th congress was HJR 2 which would make a person,
    who had lived in the U.S for at least 2 years, to be
    eligible to be the POTUS.

    ATTEMPT 6.) FEB 1 2005 – Another Constitutional Amendment, HJR
    15,which would make NON-NATIVE BORN citizens, who
    had lived in the U.S. for at least 20 years eligible
    to be the POTUS.

    ATTEMPT 7.) APR 14 2005 – Representative Vic Snyder tried again
    using HJR 42, making a person who had been a citizen
    in the U. S. for at least 35 years and who had been a
    resident for at least 14 years, to be eligible to be
    the POTUS.

    ATTEMPT 8.) FEB 28 2008 – Senator Clair McCaskill tried to attach
    an alteration to a military bill (SENATE BILL 2678)
    CITIZEN ACT.” This special change would declare that:
    in Article Two – Section One – Clause Five (of the
    constitution) the term NATURAL BORN CITIZEN would
    include any person born to any U.S. citizen, while
    serving in the active or reserve component of the U.S.
    Armed Forces.

    2008 presidential election approaching, and with the democRATS running with an ineligible and illegal candidate, the democRATS
    were desperate!

    From June 11 2003 to February 28 2008, a span of six years, there
    had been eight different congressional attempts to alter Article
    Two, Section One, Clause Five (THE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN CLAUSE)
    of the U.S. constitution. All of this took place during Barack
    Hussein Obama’s (BARRY SOETORO) rise to political power, and preceding the 2008 presidential election.

    Finally on April 10th 2008, unable to alter or remove the NATURAL
    BORN CITIZEN requirement, to clear the way for Barack Hussein
    Obama, the U.S. Senate acted to shift the focus, from Obama and
    onto McCain. The Senate conducted hearings to asses McCain’s eligibility to be the POTUS. The excuse for holding the hearings
    was because John McCain was born in Panama.
    Just before the election, the senate introduced and passed senate resolution 511, declaring Senator John McCain to be a NATURAL
    BORN CITIZEN eligible to run for an to hold the office of the President of the United States.

    Senator John McCain’s citizenship was never in question but Barack
    Hussein Obama’s was, and STILL IS!

    Barack Hussein Obama’s father was (Barack Obama senior) born in
    Kenya, and was therefore a British citizen, and was never an
    American citizen.
    Obama’s mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) was only 17 years old and was
    not old enough to transfer legal American citizenship to Barack Hussein Obama!

    Senator John McCain’s citizenship was verified by virtue of the
    fact that he was born to TWO NATURAL BORN CITIZENS of the United States of America; and not WHERE HE WAS BORN!

    This would be a condition not even met by Barack Hussein Obama
    (Barry Soetoro)!

    House members asked that the same scrutiny be applied to Barack
    Hussein Obama’s eligibility to be the POTUS but the Senate
    refused to conduct the hearings, and strangely Senator John
    McCain didn’t demand it!

    Both Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were co-sponsors of
    senate resolution 511 which declared Senator John McCain eligible
    to be the POTUS even though he had been born on a U.S. Naval Base
    in the foreign country of Panama. But in the language of the resolution there is a statement that declares that the definition
    of NATURAL BORN CITIZEN is not defined in the U.S. constitution. Another democRATic attempt to rid themselves of those pesky rules, which clearly disqualified Barak Hussein Obama from even
    running for president!

    Just before the November 2008 presidential elections, Barack
    Hussein Obama’s legal team spends over $1.4 Million to prevent
    all access to all of his personal records, from his birth certificate, his health records including a total black out on
    his school grades at every level in his education. Just a few
    days before Barack Hussein Obama is sworn in as president, he
    has a private meeting with 8 members of the Supreme court.

    The Supreme courts schedule was interrupted to accommodate their private meeting with the newly elected (but not sworn in)
    president. This was done while there were cases pending (before
    the Supreme Court) concerning the question of Barack Hussein
    Obama’s eligibility to even be a legal U.S. President.

    Many legal experts consider that Barack Hussein Obama’s private
    meeting with the Supreme Court (with out any reporters or members
    of congress present) was unethical and possibly illegal.

    To date all of the more than 40 lawsuits; concerning Obama’s
    eligibility to be the POTUS, were blocked by Elana Kagan, (who now sits on the Supreme Court) and no court has yet heard the evidence that Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible to be a United States President.

    When Barack Hussein Obama’s legal team finally released his
    so-called long form birth certificate, every legal expert around
    the world has declared that the document is a forgery.

    • mark

      “Every legal expert around the world declared Obama’s birth certificate to be a forgery.” What an absolute crock! The majority declared it to be authentic. You have personally polled and/or interviewed “every legal expert around the world?” What absolute nonsense! It is because we have people like you making such ludicrous, unsubstantiated statements that the Republican Party will probably lose the next electon, which would be a tragedy. We end up looking like a bunch of idiots with people like you on our side.

    • Alex

      Perhaps you’ll find this amusing …

      But Socrates once talked about the evolution of government. That it tends to start as an aristrocracy (meaning “the best” or “most qualified” in his definition, rather than “the richest” or “the upper class” as it is commonly understood today). The best and most qualified individuals are appointed due to their virtue and education.

      That’s what we did.

      Over time, the aristrocracy devolves into an oligarchy, where power is vested not in the best of society, but in the wealthiest.

      That process began in earnest in the early part of the twentieth century.

      An oligarchy ultimately devolves into a democracy, where everyone has a say. This, he says, is one of the most destructive forms of government. Due to the moral hazard of the masses voting according to their own wants and needs rather than according to the general welfare of their country, regardless of themselves, the result is bankruptcy, poverty, social unrest, and general misgivings with the government in control.

      That’s where we are now.

      A democracy eventually leads to a monarchy. In the midst of social unrest, a hero, or champion of the people, tends to take prominence and set things straight with a government gone awry.

      That’s what you’re proposing when you say, “We need a MILITARY MAN to lead us out of the quagmire!” What you’re asking for is to have Caesar cross the Rubicon with a standing army.

      The monarchy, without fail, becomes despotic, and within a few generations at best, monarchy devolves into tyranny. And when tyranny has oppressed the people long enough, the ultimate stage is revolution.

      And that revolution to restore the individual, God-given rights of the people, is protected by a government of the best, wisest, and most virtuous of people. A government that will eventually become an oligarchy, a democracy, a monarchy, and a tyranny.

      It’s the cycle that repeats itself in every nation, because human nature can’t be curtailed.

      The ONLY option we have is to remove those in office who are the problem, restore our constitution to its original form, and hold the future government accountable to that document. But alas, people are too lazy to see it done until the oppression has driven them to it by necessity.

        That was Plato,not Socrates.Plato used Socrates as a the main character in the five dialogues of Plato. Socrates never left any written work behind.No one knowns what his political beliefs were.Plato believe the best rule was the aristocratic rule.Today Plato would be called a modern day Fascist.

        • Alex

          Plato was the author. Socrates was the speaker in the story. The book is the Republic. Don’t talk down at me like I’m an idiot. I know perfectly well who wrote and who spoke.

          And there’s nothing to indicate that it is not a recounting of an actual conversation. Your criticism is about as warranted as a person who tries to discredit someone over a misspelled word.

          In the words of Joe Dirt, don’t focus on the wrong part of the story. The point was the dialogue and what it expressed. Not the author. Don’t be such a butthole.

          I might also add that what people in general think of Plato is irrelevant. People as a general rule are stupid or ignorant or both. Anyone with half a brain can see the genius of the work, and it was especially popular in Greco-Roman education for hundreds of years. There are even hints by phrase that Paul himself referred to the work several times throughout his epistles.

      Dear Ricardo,

      You already HAVE your wish. Obama is the clearest product of our military that we have ever had. Not even Eisenhower was more military than Obama.

      Which President of the USA had his conception PAID FOR BY THE MILITARY (CIA)?

      Obama TRULY and LITERALLY is a PRODUCT of the Military-Industrial Complex.

      The CIA flew Obama’s Daddy from Kenya to Honolulu – paid for the association of his Mommy and Daddy and paid for the copulation and conception of Obama – - -

      Obama is 100% MILITARY and CIA – - virgin PURE MILITARY. Why do you think he LOVES WAR???

      Economic PROBLEMS??? Not for Obama’s MILITARY – he gave the his MILITARY FAMILY $17 BILLION MORE THIS YEAR THAN LAST – FORCED the military to take a new C-17 even tho the military did not want it.

      Don’t argue with me! Your disagreement is with the CIA. Obama is simply doing what his masters want him to do – just like the Bushes did.

  • Rennie

    Basically Lincoln escaped justice, and that is why we have had this dangerous precedent growing ever larger today, whatever someone’s feelings or motivations about the current progressive in that office, teh executive branch of the federal government must be reigned in, and only impeachment, trial, conviction and punishment as a criminal, and I mean the disgrace of maximum security jailtime, will limit the powers of that office, or we may as well just accept dictatorship, there is no third alternative. I’m making it very clear, I wish no personal harm, and simply substituting one progressive president (caps not worthy) with another is not the answer. To save the US Constitution and our individual freedoms, we must demand Congress do it’s duty and reign in the White House, regardless of the next election results. It will be far better to have this accomplished in the halls and chambers of the Capitol, as our nation’s founders intended, than in the streets and battlefields as Lincoln’s unchecked abuse of powers brought about. Simply voting in another party or President is not enough without a clear limit on executive powers being set, according to the US Constitution, or we will just have the same problem the next time a president of either party decides to evade the Congress and Supreme Court with dictatoral edicts. The line must be drawn in the sand, and we must have people in Congress and the Supreme Court with the brains and guts to do the right thing. War, famine, flood, earthquakes, hurricanes, terror, none of these are so great an emergency or disaster than the loss of individual human rights, the difference is we can take back our rights, yes voting is the means, but we must be positive we select teh right candidates to vote for. No smoke filled backrooms, demand honest and open caucus selection, these are exceptional times, “politics as usual” is what has brought us to our knees.

      You are sort of right … but I’m going to disagree with your opening sentence. He didn’t escape justice. Someone shot his ass.

  • TML

    One of the best parts I like about this article is exposing Abraham Lincoln as the tyrant he was. I think it’s very important for Americans to understand where many of the problems really started (or at least got well underway). I’ve engaged so many people on this who think he was just the best president ever, when in fact, he could very well be labeled the worst. Abraham Lincoln invaded the confederacy to subjugate and coerce the Southern states back under central governmental control. Defenders of Honest Abe often use the whole slavery issue as a type of Red Herring, but can’t deny that slavery wasn’t honest Abe’s reason, when confronted with what he said… if he could preserve the union without freeing any slaves, he would do it. Another thing I love to hear from a Defender of Abe Lincoln is the assertion that States can’t just break out of the Union… and they say it with such ‘Hitler’ patriotism they are destroyed when confronted with the logical error of their ways. Namely, that to say a state cannot break out of the Union, implies that such union is not voluntary, and therefore the State could be considered a ‘slave’ to central government. That isn’t freedom. Secession is an inherent inalienable right, laid down in writing, in the Declaration of Independence. Almost all defenders of Abraham Lincoln fold at these statements, and I believe this to be a major importance in changing people’s ideas of what government ought to be. Great article! Keep up the good work!

    • mark

      Great article on a lost cause. The North won. The principle was settled by blood and history. States cannot leave the Union and the Federal government is supreme over the states. We all live with that reality today. Despite his often conflicted and changing views on slavery, Lincoln’s War ended this monstrous institution forever. And Thank God! Slavery made us a laughing stock, the most hypocritical nation on earth, proclaiming freedom while daily practicing its exact opposite for some 90 years (1776-1865). Lincoln I salute you! You are our greatest president. And by the way, the most admired president outside the United States. Lincoln wasn’t just a U.S. hero, he was a hero to all humanity – and a true hero, conflicted, full of flaws and weaknesses, moving slowly, painfully toward moral reason, a truly human hero, not one of these ludicrous Hollywood movie, comic book, or schoolbook heroes who is always right from day one and always knows the truth. No, Licoln was a deeply flawed human being who gradually and painfully arrived at the great truth of his life and of his moment in history – slavery must go, it was an affront to humanity, to the ideals of human freedom, and to the hope and aspirations of the United States. Compared to this great truth Bob Livingston’s arguments are base and petty.

      • TML

        You spout a lot of nonsense, and unsupported assertions, but no facts to back up your claims.

        “States cannot leave the Union and the Federal government is supreme over the states.”

        If you believe that… then you are, in fact, an enemy of a free people. If you believe that, then you are an opponent of the 10th Amendement.

        Again, secession is an inherent inalienable right, laid down in writing, in the Declaration of Independence.

        You should stop worshipping that over-rated tyrant simply because you’re black.

        • Thinking About

          Check your history again and find the conditions by which the states was readmitted to the Union. I don’t understand why so many tea baggers and liebertians do not understand why historical events was not taught to you. History is not correct in tabloid newspapers.

  • Andy Boyd

    I have fought in two conflicts and both times as a volunteer and it is not a declaration for attention it is a fundamental belief in freedom and capitalism. If you ever had any question about who Obama really is then ask yourself what he sees as important .. then witness the things that made this country great. The belief in God as our creator and the fact that we still have the right to express our opinions and express our imagination. The fact that we are the only country that believed in exploration by creating the Space administration and the wonders of its achievements despite that fact that part of its reason was to beat the Russians to the Moon. The Hubble Space telescope and the incredible scholastic and exploratory opportunities Hubble has created and yes Liberals the Space Telescope has paid for itself many times over and actually has a waiting list for users. The lone soldier that stands at the memorial with tears in his eyes remembering combat and tracers flying past him as he salutes the red, white and blue because we as a people stand for freedom. I would ask you if you have ever watched the launch of a Saturn five rocket as it carried explorers to the moon and back while a captivated world witnessed the event in awe. Has it got to you yet? Perhaps you can look back at the greatness of the Iowa class battleships and understand why they are all museum pieces .. go visit one and while you are doubting America and it greatness stand on the decks of the USS Missouri where the Japanese signed its surrender.
    I do not like Obama and never have because I thought he was alot of rhetoric in a suit and his handling of almost every job task has been a big zero. Watch him when he talks because to me it looks like a comedy routine and because he promised social manipulation people voted for his change.
    We are Americans and he is not .. plain truth .. If he was his Obama care would have allowed the American people a freeway of health options that invited all cures from every corner of the world instead he cowtowed to the protocal and made the FDA, AMA and big pharma even more unaccountable. We as a people have the power but you are only going to realize it when you look at the flag and understand that people come here by the thousands to seek the American way of life. College enrollment by foreign nationals is higher than ever because despite our issues at the moment they are counting on the American people to be who we are .. Greatness is only achieved by action in words and intent.
    We can be a great nation again with a 30 trillon dollar economy but we need an American as President that will lift the restrictions to put people back to work, lower the tax base to bring the business back to our borders, maintain our sovereign right to defend our borders and finally return our right to be an American.

The so called man has put our nation in harms way by allowing unwanted persons to enter our country and use tax payers money to live a wonderful life and have all the kids they want to have taken care of.

We need checks and balances on a lot of programs so things like this do not happen – but the problem is too many people are doing the checks and no one is doing the balances.

Who gets elected POTUS and never even served a single term in office? Who is so exempt from media inspection and review? My guess is that Retired Military had no such advantages. What has Obama done except golf, campaign, pontificate and vacation? I thought that G.W. Bush and his daddy were jerks also but they didn’t rub people’s noses in it. At least the they wore a uniform. Barack never even worked at McDonald’s and wore a paper hat. Soon Obama will be off to Martha’s Vineyard spending over a million of OUR $$$$ for yet another vacation while demanding more taxes. He has never “served” his country for so much as one day. He has only been served by his countrymen. Obama is a zero who was annointed by the NWO crowd because he’s a slick snake oil salesman and they knew, if elected, he’s be immune to serious criticism due to his racial background. You’d be best to excuse Retired Military’s angry faux pas and thank him for his service.

His Mommy and GrandMommy were KNOWN CIA Assets – and his Daddy didn’t have any problem sucking from the great CIA teat (despite his anti-imperialist bent). He did NOT pay for his plane ticket to Honolulu! The CIA did.

        And if you think that he has Blacks’ best interest in mind then you should study what the MIC did to the Black Soldiers in Nam. That is what Obama and his puppet Masters (and Bush’s too) have planned for YOU! (and me too)

Obama wants you in the ghetto while he parties with the rich white boys. He sends you off to die for his own gains and purposes while he keeps your kids locked in a public school system that barely teaches them to read, just like the powerful white politicians do. Stop seeing things in terms of color. If you hate the Constitution and the Founding Fathers so much, why did/do you serve in the military. You should be with the New Black Panthers scaring old white women away from the polls and calling them “Crackers”. I thank you for your service but I can’t respect your bitterness anymore than I can Retired Military’s ignorant reference to “watermelon”.

    Never have we had a President who has been an ACTUAL PRODUCT of our Secret Agencies – CIA.

    Obama’s Daddy was flown from Kenya to Honolulu on a CIA flight! Please prove me wrong!

    Obama’s Mommy and Daddy copulated and conceived Obama under CIA cover and funding.

        However, the Bushes were NOT products of the CIA.

        Obama’s conception was PAID FOR BY THE CIA. He is a PRODUCT OF THE CIA!!!

        How do you think Obama’s Daddy got a US Visa to fly to Hawaii? Who paid for the flight?

        Why did the white girl from Heartland USA end up copulating with a Black Commie Anti-Imperialist from Kenya???

        Come ON!! Get Real and THINK!!!!

        Obama’s BC is a CIA Forgery. Most of his academic records were inserted their by CIA assets – - THAT is why he thinks there are 57 states.

        Obama and Bush swapped spit regularly in their roles at the CIA.

        Thank you Karolyn,

        For thinking about this. No! Of course, our CIA is not capable of such long-term thinking.

        However, I reiterate that Obama’s father was flown to Hawaii by CIA. Obama’s GrandMommy worked for the bank which was THE CIA bank in Hawaii which was the conduit for CIA funding of black-ops in Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam.

        Stanley and Obama met each other at a USAID group. Do you KNOW what the USAID is? It was simply a front organization for the CIA.

        After Obama’s Daddy dumped her, the CIA set her up with her new Indonesian Sugar Daddy (also CIA asset).

        Don’t you find it just a little strange that a white girl from Heartland latches up with a Black Commie from Kenya then an Indonesian Anti-Commie and then, ends up with Barack in Pakistan???

        What do you think Obama and his Mommy were doing in Pakistan??? Surfing? Vacationing? Purchasing carpets??

          and the shot to the throat was NOT an entry wound even tho all of the attending physicians, in their handwritten reports immediately after tending to JFK’s corpse, described the wound as an “entry” wound.

          So, tell me. How did Obama’s Daddy arrive from Kenya into Honolulu? Vacationing? Surfing? Studying the Hula?

          Do you have any ideas about WHAT Obama and his Mommy were doing in Pakistan???

          My boss died a couple of years ago. He had worked for the NSA for many decades in areas of militaristic geophysics – would get calls from the Pentagon regularly – consulting.

          When he died I asked his children if they knew that he was a “spook”. They didn’t even know that their own Dad had been a spook for decades.

          So it doesn’t surprise me that Americans find it so hard to believe that the Bushes and Obama are integrated CIA assets.

          Obama’s BC is an authentic CIA forgery – it HAS to be by law! The CIA is OBLIGATED by law to forge it.

        • Karolyn

          Obama, Sr. was in Hawaii to study.

          • Tom Anderson

            Yes! Sent from Kenya to Hawaii to “study”.

            However, the CIA found that the subsequent copulation and conception of Obama was an unexpected “gift” to the agency. And the agency rewarded Stanley with:

            1) A well-heeled Indonesian CIA contact new husband (thru USAID contacts)

            2) Well paying jobs from CIA front organizations

            3) CIA Funded education for her bastard son

            Or do you prefer to believe the Pakistani carpet-importing business story? Why do YOU think the Obama’s were in Indonesia and Pakistan?

    Actually, the Founding Fathers created a system whereby there were four co-equal branches of government. The US Senate was formed to represent the state legislatures in the national governing body. Thus the people were represented by the House of Representatives and the State governments by the Senate to insure that that the national legislative body did not overstep it’s authority. With the passage of the 17th Amendment, the state legislatures were taken out of the equation and the most important check on the Federal Government’s power was removed. The popular election of senators was a huge mistake and allowed the Federal Government to expand unchecked.

    Wow. I was flabberghasted to learn how tyrannical Lincoln was! He gets a big place in history and a bust on Mr. Rushmore because the Union won the war. Right about now, I’d love free-market, capitalist red states to secede and form a more perfect union much separate from the Progressive State of America.

      So this is what it comes down to? Civil War revenge fantasies? What has happened to the conservative movement? Is is just an endless collection of yahoos? Problem with all the Deep South states leaving the Union now is that they are among the poorest, least educated states in the Union with the exception of Texas which is doing well thanks to $100 a barrell oil and lots of cheap Mexican labor.

      • TML

        Even if I accept your premise that they are the least educated, and poorest (which I don’t), how would that be a problem for the Southern States to secede? And I don’t see how thoughts of secession in this day and age should be considered a civil war revenge fantasy.

  • http://YAHOO Retired Military

    Mark – My, My, I am sorry that I hurt your feelings. If you served in the U. S. Military, why did you not become a citizen of the United States? Every month we have persons in the Military who have learned the requirments of becoming a Citizen and are sworn in, and if not then, why haven’t you followed up after you got out? They come from all branches of the service. Once that happens they get a Social Security Card and start paying taxes – and do not have to live off the tax payers any more. Yes, your people have been here for a long, long time, and they worked hard before, during, and after the civil war. But they were freed and started living on their own – and then the trouble started. A good majority of them didn’t want too work, didn’t want too go to school – they wanted everything given to them. Look at the number of black people in prisons, walking the street, living under bridges, out of work and do not want to look for work. I have some very good friends who are Black and the wife and I enjoy going out with them, and feel honored to do so. They are educated and have great paying jobs, and are also retired Military – and believe it or not they speak about the conditions in New Orleans, and other cities in the U.S. and how the Black people act and the things they do, that normal people don’t do – and there are whites in the same bucket also. One thing further, my next door neighbor is Black and he is married to a naturlized citizen and we also go places with them and have a great time. They have two children, one in College and the other graduates from High School next year and is a “A” student. You see things can happen if you want them too. I AM NOT A RACIST AND I DO NOT CARE FOR THE KKK OR ANY THING THEY STAND FOR. I DO NOT HOWEVER, CARE FOR THIS SO CALLED PRESIDENT OR HIS HATEFUL AND WRECKLESS SPENDING WIFE WHO HAS MORE PEOPLE ON HER PAYROLL THAN ANY OTHER FIRST LADY, STARTING WITH THE FIRST PRESIDENT.

    Phone Hacking Scandal Turns Tragic: Whistleblower Found DEAD!!!
    By the Guardian:

    The Guardian reveals a stunning development in the NOTW phone hacking aka MurdochGate case: “News of the World phone hacking whistleblower found dead: Sean Hoare, the former News of the World showbiz reporter who was the first named journalist to allege Andy Coulson was aware of phone hacking by his staff, has been found dead, the Guardian has learned. Hoare, who worked on the Sun and the News of the World with Coulson before being dismissed for drink and drugs problems, is said to have been found dead at his Watford home.” For now there appears to be no evidence of foul play… for now: “The death is currently being treated as unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious. Police investigations into this incident are ongoing.” Alas, as the full scale of this scandal unravels we are worried that this may be just the first of many tragic conclusions to what is rapidly becoming the biggest media scandal of the 21st century.

    • mark

      Yes in the end fear is all that is left to the conservative movement. It is the party of fear, of doom, of Armaggedon. That is why it will lose. Ronald Reagan gave conservativism a face of hope and optimism that captured the spirit of America – all the current crop of conservatives have is fear and crazy conspiracy theory exaggerations that Obama is not a flawed and struggling, elected president, but rather an evil AntiChrist, a monster from hell bent on America’s destruction. Thanks to these conservatives, Obama will probably and suprisingly be reelected.

  • CJM

    I have said this before odummberbummber was elected and frequently since the election: It s obama’s desire and plan to become the last elected President and first installed dictator…………well, finally we have someone else stating the same thing. It is the people of the US that will have to remove this scum from the Oval Office via impeachment; he needs to be stripped of authority NOW. Everyone needs to bombard their representatives and senators with phone calls, letters, emails, faxes and face-to-face demands to oust the imposter immediately or THEY will also be removed from office.

Get over yourself; he IS a DICTATOR….and he wants everything you have, including your mind. Sorry, but I don’t give up when it comes to defending myself OR my family OR my personal property. There are plenty of places for you to live in an unfree world–take your pick and be done with it. obama is NO messiah; he is NO leader; but, like a thief in the night, he will take all you hold near and dear. IMPEACH THE DICTATOR.

  • alrin bewry

    You can hate all you want , Obama will have his second term and if there were a third term he would have it too. His achievements are as a result of his own merit, own hard work , his own intelligence , his own versatility, his own virtue, his own capacity and his own strength and endurance. Is that what is killing all you haters??

    If you think this congress is not working fast or good enough, then we need to replace them with a pool of conservatives maybe from the Tea Party. But just to rag against Republicans is not going to help. They have been fighting against a president who should not be a president in the first place, the Senate is in democratic hands and they are no help! Right now obummer has dig his heels and refuses to open up the negotiations for everyone to see. If the meetings are held in secret, is because that is the way he works, the Chicago way. obummer does not want the American voter to see his coercion and dictatorship style on the negotiating table. I think the Republican leaders in Congress are keeping firm, and I sure hope they suck it to obama.

  • http://Netscape Hope says

    I think that President Obama is doing the right by holding Security checks. He wants people to see what life would be like if the Republications took over. There will be no Social Security checks, Welfare, food stamps, affordable housing, and most of the United States would be Homeless and dying of hunger. The USA will no longer be the land of Opportunity any more. Obama is trying to tell us if you wanelect a Republican, You won’t have anything. When your checks don’t come see how you feel about the Republications. Republications are cold heartless, greedy, and selfish, candidates. They want to make the Rich richer and the Middle class and poor poorer.

    Obama and his Mother were involved in purchasing Pakistani carpets during their stay in Pakistan – they were starting a Pakistani import business!

    And Ms. Dunham’s mother, Madelyn Dunham – who raised Obama while his mother was on assignment in Indonesia – acted as vice president of the Bank of Hawaii in Honolulu, which Madsen says was used by various CIA front entities. She handled escrow accounts used to make CIA payments “to U.S.-supported Asian dictators” including Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, South Vietnamese President Nguyen van Thieu, and President Suharto in Indonesia, Madsen says.

    “In effect, the bank was engaged in money laundering for the CIA to prop up covertly its favored leaders in the Asia-Pacific region,” Madsen writes. “It is clear that Dunham Soetoro and her Indonesian husband, President Obama’s step-father, were closely involved in the CIA’s operations to steer Indonesia away from the Sino-Soviet orbit after the overthrow of Sukarno.”

    “President Obama’s own work in 1983 for Business International Corporation, a CIA front that conducted seminars with the world’s most powerful leaders and used journalists as agents abroad, dovetails with CIA espionage activities conducted by his mother,” Madsen says. “There are volumes of written material on the CIA backgrounds of George H.W. Bush and CIA-related activities by his father and children, including former President George W. Bush. Barack Obama, on the other hand, cleverly masked his own CIA connections as well as those of his mother, father, step-father, and grandmother,” Madsen points out.

    • Rico

      So why couldn’t the CIA do a better job of faking his birth certificate? Are they REALLY that inept? LOL

    • CJM

      And, Tom, who would even think that Madsen’s article has a grain of truth in it? In the first place, the liar-in-chief was too young to be a partner of anyone’s business ventures. In the second place, his mother never worked in a business…she was considered a professional who worked in science. However, no one ever has been able to prove her educational achievements since she gave birth to the liar-in-chief when she was 18, moved to Kenya before he was born (and could not board a plane to the US due to advanced pregnancy) which resulted in his birth in Kenya, and moved from Kenya to Indonesia by the them her son was age 2 (where he was adopted by sotero). The author did the liar in chief proud.

  • Tom Anderson

    More about Obama’s Pakistani carpet business!

    Mark, How is that tooth fairy workin out for you now? Obama is NOT Black – he is CIA – he was BOUGHT by the CIA his CONCEPTION was paid for by the CIA – his school records were placed in registrar’s offices by the CIA. His BC is a CIA forgery. And ALL of this is perfectly legal and necessary. The CIA is obligated to cover for any and all of it prior assets. Why do you think that EVERY judge throws out any lawsuit related to his BC? The JUDGE HAS to hide all CIA assets according to National Security Laws!

    President Obama – as well as his mother, father, step-father and grandmother – all were connected to the Central Intelligence Agency – possibly explaining why the President praises the “Agency” and declines to prosecute its officials for their crimes.

    According to a published report in the September Rock Creek Free Press of Washington, D.C., investigative reporter Wayne Madsen says Obama’s mother Ann Dunham worked “on behalf of a number of CIA front operations, including the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation.” The East-West Center had long been affiliated with CIA activities in the Asia-Pacific region, Madsen says.

    What’s more, Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., arrived in Hawaii from Kenya as part of a CIA program to identify and train Africans who would be useful to the Agency in its Cold War operations against the Soviets, Madsen says. Obama Sr. divorced Ms. Dunham in 1964.

    Ms. Dunham married Lolo Soetoro the following year, a man Madsen says assisted in the violent CIA coup against Indonesian President Sukarno that claimed a million lives. Obama’s mother taught English for USAID, “which was a major cover for CIA activities in Indonesia and throughout Southeast Asia,” Madsen reports. That USAID was a cover for CIA covert operations in Laos was admitted by its administrator Dr. John Hannah on Metromedia News. Madsen says the organization was also a cover for the CIA in Indonesia.

    • Karolyn

      Yeah, yeah.

    • CJM

      Tom: I can guess rather accurately that you would believe a slug owes its growth to ordinary salt if Madsen said it was true, even though simple research proves that ordinary salt dissolves the slug rather rapidly—a common thing that any 3rd or 4th grader would know. CIA my arse…that whole family was nothing more than a bunch of communists and belonged to the communist party. Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Sotero was definitely a communist; she was misdiagnosed with appendicitis in indonesia and when she didn’t get any better, returned to the US and was found to have advanced cancer. If, indeed, she was a member of the CIA, she would have been shipped back to the US for a thorough medical exam and appropriate treatment…the CIA, like the military, takes good care of its own.

  • Tom Anderson

    Obama is NOT Democrat or Pinko Commie, he is simply CIA and MIC.

    He has been the PAID-for product of the CIA since before his CONCEPTION!

    His education and professional career were paid for by the CIA and our tax dollars .

    If you LOVE the US Military then you will LOVE Obama!

    Obama is a bigger warmonger than Bush Jnr and Snr. Obama has never seen war or drone or military massacre or torture that he doesn’t LOVE! He will do the bidding of his CIA Masters.

    Bush, Petreus and Obama – a perfect LOVE Triangle.

    The war in Libya – that’s just the beginning – Obama has lots more war planned.

    That lost adjustable-yield nuclear war head which was “accidentally” flown out of N. Dakota AFB – you can bet your bottom dollar that Obama and his Masters have that warhead in their back pocket waiting for the time to best launch a “false flag” nuke attack in order to justify MORE stringent control of US Citizens – Heaven Help Us!

    An entire column written mostly by “Amygdalas Run Amok”! Definitive studies out of NYU and UCLA have shown a definite increase in the size of the amygdala (an almond-shaped region in the anterior of the Temporal lobes of the brain, which is responsible for processing fear information) in the brains of conservatives; meaning, essentially that conservatives FEAR everything, especially anything different, or “not like them”. This includes fear of Al Qaeda, of Global Warming, of same-sex marriage or homosexuality, or dark-skinned people (especially President’s of the U.S.). In essence, conservatives are simply “Fraiddy Cats”; but it’s NOT THEIR FAULT! No, as stupid and completely irrational as they may seem, it’s simply a biological phenomenon.

        Actually, one gets the sense that most conservatives, who seem to collectively suffer from some congenital form of Cranial Constipation, don’t read many statements at all, certainly not from authoritative, intelligent, scientifically valid sources. About the connection between conservatism (overly fearful) and the size of the amygdala portion of the brain, don’t take my word for it; look it up!!!! Google “amygdala size conservative” to find references to studies done at NYU, UCLA, University College London, etc. It’s been my experience, however, that conservatives, being the fearful types, deny whatever they want regardless of the overwhelming evidence; like Global Warming, Evolution; heck a lot of them still contend Copernicus was wrong, and that the EARTH is actually the center of our Solar System!

    • Tom Anderson

      You are right ChuckB.

      But the shadowy organization which you refer to has, in fact, a NAME and it is called the CIA.

      Obama’s counselors? Try Rahm Emmanuel. Don’t you get it? Was Rahm in the US Military? NO! He was in the Mossad in Israel. Do you get the message? The CIA approved of Rahm and so did the Mossad.

      Who write’s Obama’s Teleprompter speeches – look to the Mossad again in collaboration with the CIA. You don’t need to bring Soros into this discussion. The strict Mossad and CIA have always been in bed together – just look at the USS Liberty.

      And I simply bring history to bear – Obama’s mother and Obama worked for ALL CIA front organizations – USAID, Rockefeller, BIC, etc.

      Can you show any payments from Soros to Obama or Obama’s mother?

      Extra Credit quiz question: Who was French President’s Sarkozy’s foster CIA father? And the father of Sarkozy’s foster father was the CIA architect who designed the plot to topple Iran’s duly elected president in the 50′s. How many people reading this KNOW the answer?

      So who believes that the IMF prez really raped that maid – Sarkozy was gunning for him and immediately got his girl installed into the IMF presidency while his innocent enemy was chained in Rikers.

    Ask you elected officials to support this and see what happens

    Congressional Reform Act of 2011 

    1. No Tenure / No Pension.
    A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office. 

    2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
    All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

    3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do. 

    4. Congress will no longer vote for themselves, a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%. 

    5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. 

    6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people. 

    7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12.
    The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work. 

    • winstonromeo

      I completely agree with what you have to say regarding our career polititians. One term and then out, 4 or 6 years to focus on their first responsibility to their constituants and then back to where they came from. We have far too many entitled persons who have made a lifelong career out of being public servants. As for Obama, he is in violation of countless constitutional laws and needs impeached and indicted. I am personally in favor of a recall election that would force him of office posthaste.

      • Ranger 1

        What a great idea; one single term of maybe 6 years for every elected office in the country, with no chance of being re-elected to any other office for a period of 6 years, and you have effectively just eliminated all PAC’s and virtually all lobby influence, returning to the concept of citizen/politician. What you’d give away in terms of experience and institutional memory you’d more than make up for by having honest politicians, focused on doing their job for the betterment of everyone, not just Special Interests!

    Dear Bob Livingston,

    In full disclosure, I have never been an asset or in any other way connected to the CIA or any other “spook” organization.

    Can I ask you:

    1) Are you associated in any way with the CIA or other “spook” organizations or CIA fronts – USAID, FORD Foundation, etc?

    2) If you were associated with them would you lie about it and/or deny it?

    3) Why haven’t you covered Obama and Obama’s family’s CIA connections? Certainly you have contacts in the spook groups – are you obligated to keep your mouth shut?

    Thank you

    This Imperial Administration is at war with Fox News. The FBI is investigating Rupert Murdock instead of investigating the illegal
    gun-running into Mexico! This president is using the FBI to squash a “political enemy!” Times are changing and we are already in a period of “soft-tyranny!” But, we have just begun to see what this government is capable of doing. Is it really too far fetched to imagine that other political enemies of this dictator could be sent to one of the empty “camps” that are standing ready….If you are not afraid of what is being planned for this country….it is because of ignorance!

    I CIA files also contain a report on the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations (1971-1973), which is possibly pertinent to the agency’s involvement in Indonesia. One of the participants in the Chicago CFR’s 1971 conference in Oak Brook was Zbigniew Brzezinski, who would later become President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, the chief architect of the U.S. support for the Afghan mujaheddin, and one of Obama’s professors at Columbia University.
    On April 27, 1973, the Chicago CFR sponsored a seminar titled “Indonesia Today,” according to the CFR Chicago report maintained in CIA files. Present were “four representatives of Center for Strategic International Studies in Jakarta” who discussed in presented papers Indonesia’s role in Southeast Asia. One of the participants was Soetaryo Sigit, Indonesia’s minister of mines.
    The CFR report also states that the Atlantic Conference series that attracted the same high-level participants as BIC, was started in 1965 under the auspices of CFR Chicago by Joseph Slater of the Ford Foundation. The Ford Foundation employed Dunham in Indonesia.
    CIA files also contain a single page from the “Chicago Buyers” Guide.” Listed on the page is the address and phone number for Business International Corporation in Chicago: One IBM Plaza, Suite 1420, 60611. 321-0300.
    Obama gave scant reference to his employment with BIC in his 2006 book, “Dreams From My Father.”just found out that I have been entirely mistaken:

    1) Obama did NOT work for BIC after he graduated from Columbia Univ.
    2) BIC (Business International Corp) is NOT a front for the CIA
    3) Dunham (Obama’s mother) did NOT work for the FORD Foundation
    4) the FORD Foundation is NOT a front for the CIA

    Dear Karolyn,

    I am sure that YOU will appreciate this “partridge hunting” story of Obama in Pakistan. I prefer Obama’s “carpet importing” story. You choose your OWN fiction!

    Of course, Obama nor his Mommy had ANY connections at all with the CIA!!!

    WMR has obtained additional details on Business International Corporation (BIC), the CIA front company where President Obama spent a year working after graduating from Columbia University in 1983.
    BIC used journalists as non-official cover (NOC) agents around the world. The firm published weekly and fortnightly newsletters for business executives, including Business International, Business Europe, Business Latin America, and Business Asia.
    On February 24, 2009, WMR reported: “For one year, Obama worked as a researcher in BIC’s financial services division where he wrote for two BIC publications, Financing Foreign Operations and Business International Money Report, a weekly newsletter.
    “An informed source has told WMR that Obama’s tuition debt at Columbia was paid off by BIC. In addition, WMR has learned that when Obama lived in Indonesia with his mother and his adoptive father Lolo Soetoro, the 20-year-old Obama, who was known as ‘Barry Soetoro,’ traveled to Pakistan in 1981 and was hosted by the family of Muhammadmian Soomro, a Pakistani Sindhi who became acting president of Pakistan after the resignation of General Pervez Musharraf on August 18, 2008.
    “WMR was told that the Obama/Soetoro trip to Pakistan, ostensibly to go ‘partridge hunting’ with the Soomros, related to unknown CIA business. The covert CIA program to assist the Afghan mujaheddin was already well underway at the time and Pakistan was the major base of operations for the CIA’s support . . . BIC had long been associated with CIA activities since being founded by Eldridge Haynes, a self-professed liberal Democrat. The BIC headquarters was located at the prestigious address of 1 Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in Manhattan.”

      FYI, Tom anderson, obama’s education was paid for by US taxpayers through his application for the Foreign Educational Aid for Students of Foreign Countries…and that has been proven beyond any doubt. These special funds are available to young folks from third world nations and no US citizen is eligible for those funds. There is no mystery about how his education was paid for…and because of this, it is also proof that obama is a NON-citizen, therefore he is ineligible for the Presidency.

    A bit part of the congressional abdication is we have a class of people called “Career Polititions” They are in constant campaign mode. They do not care for or represent the people who blindly vote the same polititions into office every election cycle. The polititions only represent special interests who fill up their campaign coffers. I am in constant touch with my Senators and Representatives about the issues. They tell me they get my e-mails and thank me for writing. I live in New York State, and have never cast my vote for a winner. NY is the cesspool of Liberalism.
    The only answer that I can think is strict term limits. Nobody should serve more than two terms in congress, and one term in the
    Senate. Once having served in office, they should not be allowed to run for office again. They are not an entitled class. They are just ordinary citizens of the USA. We term limit the President, and we should term limit everyone else.

    so, if; “Bush — under the guise of “saving” the economy — looted the Treasury to make sure his Treasury Secretary’s old firm, Goldman Sachs, made out like a bandit…”, and if Goldman Sachs was the biggest contributer of Obama, you could say Bush made sure G/S had the funds to give to Obama..?!?, just saying..

    Did you ever wonder why the only two candidates for president in 2004 were both members of Skull and Bones? They only let 15 inductees join a year. What are the chances? Or who groomed Clinton from the Rhodes society for becoming prez.? Makes you think, doesn’t it?

    well we have a two party dictatorships,depending whos in power,if your not a democrat or republican you 99% of the time cant get elected to dog catcher much less any national office,even if you do get lucky and win as an independant,you cant get any support from either of the other two parties,who are towing the party lines,spouting the party talking points,divide and conquer the people and public opinion,class warefare is a tool of both parties let no one fool you,its un-elected politicians on both sides that is the authors of party policies,and if you go against the party elites,one with the money,then they will roll you down if they have to frame you.
    with this kind of corruption do you really think things are gonna change,I dont think so,this country and its economic future is headed for the rock bottom,into the darkest pits and we are headed for a dark age because we are being ruled by the corporations who are getting rich by the cheap labor of third world countries and letting hard working american families and individuals starve,thats why they are so proud to be globalist

    Kind Attention “woodpecker”

    At any given time, the minority party likes to pretend that the debt is all the majority party’s fault. That’s the whole theory behind the McConnell plan. But every president and congress is paying for the decisions of every previous president and congress. This is, and always has been, a bipartisan affair.

    What has become blatently apparent is the President Obama does not have the wellfare of the American public anywhere on his radar. Based on his job so far he is a complete and utter failure and should be fired on the spot and escorted out of his office under armed guard. He has made a mockery of the Constitution of the United States beginning with the fact that he is not a US born citizen. Based on that I, who was born in N. Ireland of an Irish mother and a US citizen father, would be able to run for that office. Obama has set hiself up as an above the law despot who needs removed from office by impeachment or better yet a no conficence vote of the citizens (a recall election) which would obligate him to step down. With some 69% of the voting public disapproving of his job that should be an easy thing to accomplish. Impeachment could take years and this country does not have that long to wait. At this point our only hope is that Congress will grow a backbone and push back against Obama’s schemes for failure and disaster for this country. Those elected legistators must realize that the voters’ memory is long and they will be the next to be unemployed should they blindly follow Obama. The next election cannot come soon enough and it will be difficult to patiently wait to cast my one vote against Obama. I was fooled the first time into voting for him, but I will not be fooled again.

    The liberal cult seeks destruction of the American Republic like water seeks low ground.

    Our political system has been corrupted by the liberal cult, mostly through the media and education systems it controls. This corrupted system produces a corrupt product. So don’t expect too much from this next election. A Republican is likely to win the White House, but it seems likely that it will be a liberal Republican, that will be little more than marginally better than a liberal Democrat.

    As this essay points out, most of the things this federal government is doing are illegal, being clear violations of Article Ten of the Bill of Rights (among other laws). Whether they like it or not, the Constitution still is the law, and every one of them swore an oath of loyalty to it. People who work together as a team to systematically break the law constitute a criminal gang.

    This criminal gang in Washington, together with its masters in the liberal cult, are levying political war on the American Republic. Our political system can not survive this ruthless war that has been sustained over so many years. If enough people come to this realization maybe something can be done about it; until then, expect to continue the spiral downward. The only thing that will be determined by any election is the rate at which we lose our freedom.

    Somewhere along the line America acquired a de facto official state religion. The name of this religion is Humanism; the political arm of this church is usually called liberalism; sometimes other words, such as progressive, are used as euphemisms.

    The doctrine of this church is now the foundation of our law, even to the point that it overrides the Constitution. This doctrine includes various forms of social engineering and wealth redistribution, diversity, fairness (as defined by the church), multiculturalism, bans on anything labeled profiling, the concept that anything labeled racism or sexism are heresy, and so on.

    The dogma of the official state church is programmed into our children in the government schools. This dogma includes feminism and homosexuality, the white male and America are evil, evolution is proven scientific fact and God is a myth, and so on. These schools focus more on indoctrination than education, and as a result those who graduate from them have little or no critical thinking skills, and make perfect dupes for the liberal cult.

    According to official church edicts, people can be kicked out of school, fired from their job, and sued, for saying or doing things that have been forbidden by the high seers of the official state church. This applies even to untruth in church dogma being challenged by truth. So all who want to be able to earn a living learn to guard even their own thoughts.

    The traitors who impose this theocracy on us are the same people who speak out the loudest about the so-called separation between church and state.

      So, in essence you’re saying that all teachers are anti-God/Christian. There are no Christian teachers or administrators. They are all in on this grand scheme. that must be what you’re saying, because any teachers who were Christian would not undermine what they believe to such a great extent. Could it not be that they do not think this is the Great Indoctrination? That their views, though also Christian, are broader than yours? Could you not be wrong?

    Mr. President if you want to tell Senior Citizens and disabled Americans that their Social Security and disability checks won’t be sent out on August 3′rd. I would also advise you to say to all
    Federal Employees in Washington that their payroll checks will not be sent out also! If you intent is to scare the Senior Citizens and Disabled Americans of America, would not the reality be that if these folks don’t receive their checks that all the Federal Employees will not be receiving theirs either. Why do you choose to scare the group of Americans that can least afford to hear these threats while you choose not to remind your own staff and their staff members too that they too won’t get their checks either. I bet you won’t furlough the white house staff of chefs, Maids, chauffeurs and all those who make you and your family life run so well. It might be good though to see Michele and the girls in the White House Kitchen instead of in a photo Op outside in the garden actually preparing meals for you and them. And to clean the toilets and vacuum the floors etc. just like the rest of us do each day. I can live without a month’s check as I manage my finances such that I have an emergency fund set up just in case I can’t count on the paycheck. Yes, I live within my means and bet that I can do a better job of managing my small amount of money better than you as president have demonstrated you can manage the trillions of dollars you give out in foreign aid at the expense of the American taxpayer.

    I hope you have to sweat this one out just as we all do each day we see our families do when jobs get sent overseas. Why can’t you agree to cut back the number of Federal employees just as companies have cut back on their payrolls to save their companies? And it is a fact that when these Companies find that they have to trim their expenses and yes unfortunately sometimes the number of employees, many times they find that they can run their companies just as well with streamline efficiency….so why can’t Washington do the same? I hope the Speaker holds his ground and tells you no new taxes, cut the spending to a level that matches the tax base. I run my household this way….and it works.
    Don’t spend what you don’t have…end of discussion.

    May God bless you and The United States of America?

    Being a lite weight while growing up, I always observed with some sense of satisfaction whenever the school yard bully got what he not only deserved but also caused his brain to melt with confusion at the ease by which his defeat was administered. I would offer for consideration that all is not lost! They have not won the final battle just yet. We only have to bloody their 545 noses just once on the playground with the help of our 500,000,000 friends. How? Start a nationwide secession movement! We have to stop asking anything from the “government” and take our rights back whether or not they agree or like the idea. It does not even have to work. The momentum will eventually lead to the 100th monkey awakening that our government so much fears. One thought of freedom has an effect on the collective consciousness. One act of Freedom, seen as necessary and effective, will bring the house of cards down. One punch to the nose of the bully will lead to a rude awakening. I also believe that our military will stand up for this nation when Obama attempts to declare martial law and have all of us placed in FEMA camps and begin harvesting our organs for sale (on the agenda)! What they have planned for us is beyond belief or science fiction. We MUST stand up and fight! Before long they will be at our doors to take our children, our homes, our land, our food, our water, our electricity, our gas, our vehicles, our money, and then Obama can call in the 30,000 Chinese troops he has planted across the border in Mexico to kill anybody they want. Remember what they did in Tibet. WAKE UP! TAKE ACTION! ORGANIZE! We all love this country of ours, warts and all. Peace to all of you.

    If you look at what is occuring on the news at this date concerning the efforts of Big Sis to get minorities to spy on white American citizens, one thing becomes clear: Obama is a RACIST. He hates Americans and this country and white people, and will pay this nation back for black slavery by the whites! I saw a video on U tube during which Obama accused Lady GaGa of being a white D…bag surrounded by white people with too much styling gel. He is a muslim racist, and he will not stop until we are all behind barbed wire. He gets away with it because he is a sociopathic charmer! The same applies to his wife, reptilian that she is. When Israel attacks Iran in the near furure, and it will, Obama will be sending ground troops into the war along with a large naval armada, some of which will be sunk by Russian technology owned by the Iranians. A new military draft will be enacted; thousands of Americans will die. Marshal law will be declared by Obama, and the roundup will commence. America is owned by Israel and the Zionists and will do their bidding! Israel was behind 9/11 to turn American hatred against muslims and engage us in endless wars in the Middle East. Provide the name of one Israeli soldier killed in Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Kuwait, etc. NONE! But we have been sent there on behalf of Isael! And many of our sons and daughters have died on their behalf. This is INSANE! We need to go into their dens, drag them out by their tails, arrest them and put them all on trial for treason and then hang them! This includes Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and the rest of the lot. The same can be said for the Banksters of Wall Street!

  • The Truth

    Obama lies! So does Vigilant and others on this blog. The Republicans have helped create this mess, yes. But it is the Democrats and the Progressives that are truly hurting America and Americans. They want a socialist state and they see the present atmosphere as ripe for a full and complete take-over and implementation of such a state.

    It is my opinion that either one of two things will occur in the 2012 election. Either Obama will find a way, why not, he’s found other ways to do what ever he wants to do, to remain president for a third term that will morph into more and more time in office, or he will be illegally replaced through voter fraud and/or lying tactics by another socialist.

    We MUST turn this thing around today. We must DEMAND the Tea Party politicians stand tall and tough and we must back them 100% now and we must work hard to stop the destruction of this country as we know it here and now and by the 2012 election.

    If we fail, we all go down except for the elites in Washington and the Progressives that keep putting them there.

    It seems to me that, after reading most of the above comments, that those who can be defined as patriotic towards American core values can be found in almost any household across the country, but they cannot be located with the confines of Washington. We are able to talk
    honestly and openly regarding the problems facing our nation, but those who are the elected officials in government, always avoid open discussion of the real issues facing all of us. For example, it can be scientifically demonstrated that the insidence of breast cancer, diabetes and other serious ailments is many times higher within 100 miles of our nuclear reactors than outside of that radius. Waters near the same reactors are poisening life within the water and along its banks, meaning fish and other wildlife, not to mention humans. There is no safe way in which to store nuclear waste and protect the environment around that waste. Still, in spite of the evidence, who in our government, Democrat or Republican, are ready to take on General Electric and the funding of future reactors? GE built Fukushima and will continue building them in the U.S. Germany has shut down all of their reactors and plans on replacing them with non nuclear plants, due to the alarming rise in radiation around the world from Fukushima. Our government is still insisting that we continue along the same toll road owned by GE. This is only one example, and we don’t need to get into the evidence that Fukushima was caused by a HAARP attack directed by Israel against Japan for selling nuclear fuel to Iran! We have a government within another government within another government, all controlled by major banking cartels. Presidents are not elected any longer; they are appointed and all answer to the Council on Foreign Relations! The entire system is a fraud and the financial problems this nation is facing is another false flag operation that is controlled by very secret computer programs. Everything is manipulated!

    It seems true that we get the government that we deserve. It is also true that, once this card trick government is in place, as it is, then we cannot expect any form of satisfaction or relief from any of them. We cannot go to any of “them” for change or assistance. We cannot expect logic, compassion, humility, caring, love, peace, quarter, reason, democracy, freedom, freedom of speach, freedom from search and seizure, civil rights, constitutional values or requirements, etc. It all stopped with the assasination of Kennedy! Oswald had nothing to do with it! There are photos available showing Oswald standing outside of the book repository near George Bush senior as the mororcade carrying Kennedy drive past! It was approved by vice president Johnson and planned and carried out by a CIA operative named George Bush who was rewarded for his actions by eventually being placed into the office of the presidency himself! Johnson had to resign to keep this from going public. If you go to the “” site, you can find photos during the video the show Osama Bin laden sitting at a conference table with Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld and the rest of the “Hidden Hand” crew. Look at it, watch it, and see first hand how ruthless these people are. We have to stand up for ourselves, get off our knees, and make demands for action, not pleas for action! Stand up, America!

    America has been in a permanent state of succession since the civil war and politicians have continual tried desperately 2 divert the REAL issue at the stubborn pride of a failed exercise. [THE CONSTITUTION] This is a failed document.

    “How can U pour new wine [freedom] N an old bottle [slavery]?”
    “How can 2 walk together unless the agree?”
    Natural Law—that rights are endowed by a Creator, not by government.

    “This was the cause of the succession, and I say these R truly those who succeed here.”

    1 patriot serviced the land free by force, the other took from the land at high cost.

    Later after the succession the BLACK FREEMAN was blindfolded from the law as the SLAVE MASTERS GOVERNING LAW sold this land 2foriegn control under bankruptcy LAWS. These bankruptcies continued until the “NEW DEAL” was enacted under a 3Term President F.D.R. [Spans from the Act of 1871 - 1939]

    After this country was given the FEDERAL MONARCHY, a trade 4 our Land, Military, and Gold, in exchange for entitlements of dependency care, HERE are loyalties were transferred 2 the defense of a foreign global union league witch in essence abolishes self OW NUS. The following actions allowed civil right 4the FREEMAN who had now gained ownership of the dept they had not accrued.

    Given these entitlements pacified the rights of voting, but not the right of freedom.
