The following Roll Call vote took place in spite of the fact that Senators were not provided copies to peruse before the vote, even if they requested it. 18 Patriots voted Nay! The means by which this legislation was moved and passed gives new meaning to the word “Treachery”.  Republican Mitch McConnell got his $2 Billion Earmark and a stipend of $174K of our treasure was slipped to  Millionairess Senator Frank  Lautenberg of NJ’s  widow in this purported “Clean CR”. When we have a chance to review the entire bill we will surely find other treacheries like a trick-provision that was added that will require a 2/3 vote  to stop the Debt Limit increase.

Had enough yet?

Just Another Obama Lie Which He Hopes Will Cause Republicans to Cave on Sequestration

Barack Hussein Obama invented Sequestration

Obama LaughingNow it looks like Obama and his Thugs miscalculated on Sequestration. They have been using the imminent implementation of Sequestration to conspire with their media minions  in attempting to coerce the Republicans to once again cave to  Community organizer’s wicked lying  propaganda rants that have increased in volume and intensity as we approach the February 1st implementation.

The Republicans didn’t cave immediately and thereby created  a potentially disastrous political dilemma for Our Dear Leader. His political cohorts are telling him that if Sequestration becomes effective and the sky doesn’t fall, Barack will have a sever credibly problem, even among his loyal supporters.

If you take a look at the GDP math below that shows about a half cent hit for every non sequestrated GDP dollar, or even if you don’t, there is only one unquestionable conclusion that becomes evident.

Obama’s rants on Sequestration are a contrived comedy about  “Much A do about Nothing ”

That’s Right! There is no appreciable affect on our economy, even if he jawbone’s Ben Bernake  into saying so!

Call Your Senators and Representatives and tell them to let Sequestration to go into affect so that we can bring our $16.6T ever increasing Debt Crisis under control!

Analyses of Sequestration Affect on 2013 GDP:

The size of a nation’s economy is the total value of the spending on goods and services in the nation in a year. This spending occurs in the form of transactions within and between these three sectors. The flip side of this spending is production, because you can buy only what has been produced. So we can also measure an economy based on its production. Therefore, when you add up all of these transactions—and the value of foreign trade—the result is gross domestic product, or GDP. The formula for GDP is:

GDP = C + I + G + (Ex – Im)

where “C” equals spending by consumers,
“I” equals investment by businesses,
“G” equals government spending and
“(Ex – Im)” equals net exports, that is, the value of exports minus imports. Net exports may be negative.

According to Infoplease the  composition of GDP breaks down roughly as follows:

Consumption:   65%

Investment:       15%

Government:     20%

Net Exports:     0.0%

The CBO Projection for 2013 GDP is $16.198Trillion

2013 without Sequestration

C = $16.198T X .65 =10.5287 Trillion

G = $16.198T X .2 = $3.2396 Trillion

I =  $16.198T  X .15 =$2.4297 Trillion

2013 with Sequestration  

Assumes that the only variable is the $85B removed from  G, the Government Budget Contribution  while  C, I  remain constant

$16.198T – .085T =$16.113 T

C = $10.5287 Trillion

G = $3.2396T- .$085T = $ 3.1546 Trillion

I =  $2.4297 Trillion

What is the affect of Sequestration on GDP?

(Sequestration GDP  divided by Non-Sequestration GDP   minus 1) x 100 = Percent

($16.113T/ $16.198T) -1  = 0.0099 = .99% or about 1%

The $85B in Sequestration would reduce GDP by 1-cent for  every dollar of a  Non Sequestration GDP.

 

Since one-half of the $85T in Sequestration is slated for FY 2014, Sequestration will reduce the  FY 2013 Sequestration GDP  by about one-half a penny  for every  Non Sequestration dollar.

If Sequestration is Repealed, Will America Become the Next Weimar Republic?

February 24, 2013 in Abuse of Power, Debt Crisis, Debt Limit, Economic Deception, Economy, Fiscal Cliff, President Obama, Sequestration

hyperinflation1The Weimar Republic is the name given to the federal republic and parliamentary representative democracy established in 1919 in Germany to replace its pre-WWI imperial form of government. It was named after Weimar, the city where the constitutional assembly took place. The Weimar‘s Constitution was signed on August 11, 1919 and was deposed by Hitler’s Third Reich ascendency in February/March 1933. During its fourteen year existence the Weimar Republic was burdened by hefty reparations imposed by the victors of WWI, political extremist from both the Left and Right as well as rampant hyperinflation that permitted Hitler to seize power  and dissolve the Constitution.  The caption below the above photo of a one Hundred Million Mark note[A mark was equivalent to our $1-dollar bill] reads:  In 1923, a German housewife burned mark notes in her kitchen stove since it was cheaper to burn marks than to buy firewood.

 

 

weimar-wheelbarrow-1-loaf-breadThe vision most vividly embedded into the minds of  school children studying the era is one of a wheelbarrow filled with thousands or millions of marks  to purchase a single loaf of bread! The photo at left taken during this period, depicts that scenario.

When Barack Hussein Obama came into office, our FY2009  Budget stood at $3.1Trillion. Today the FY2013 Budget is at $3.8Trillion. Sequestration, which is a program devised by President Obama, cuts $85B across-the-board from THE RATE OF INCREASE of theFY2012 budge of 3.72Trillion. It DOES NOT DECREASE  the FY2013 total budget amount from that of FY2012. Of the phantom $85B in cuts, half isslated to be  removed from Defense Spending  and half from Entitlement Spending. The $85B in phantom cuts represents measly 2.2% of our $3.8T Budget.

The FY2013 Budget consists of 60% Mandatory Spending and 40% Discretionary Spending. Mandatory spending is spending that is required under existing law. In passing, it needs to be noted that while Defense spending represents 19% of the FY2012 Budget, it is slated for 50% of the FY2013 Sequestration cuts.

Last Fall, Jim Rogers, the founder of Rogers International Commodity Index and economic guru,” predicted that America is headed to a “Financial Armageddon”. Rogers stated  that he was absolutely convinced that the economy would burst soon after the election. He  also stated that he has never been a supporter of the policy of quantitative easing.[ The Federal Reserve can just create dollars out of thin air by buying up assets like long-term Treasuries or mortgage-backed securities from commercial banks and other institutions. These “thin air” dollars created by the Federal Reserve flow into the banks, and in turn are pumped into the U.S. economy and ultimately reduce our long-term interest rates. The theory is that when long-term interest rates go down, investors  have a greater incentive to spend their money.] Jim Rogers is also quite certain that our Government needs to cut spending in order to reduce our burgeoning debt. Rogers also stated that German Chancellor Angela Marker and Obama were promoting policies which were just another disguise for hiding the real state of their economies.

www.usgovernmentpending.com is estimating that the US debt to GDP will exceed 100% for 2012.  Two American economists, Carmen Reinhardt and Ken Rogoff, argue that growth slows sharply in countries where the ratio of debt to GDP exceeds 90 percent.

So there you have it. Barack Hussein Obama is jawboning Congress about Sequestration, seeking even  more deficit spending that will most certainly result in even slower growth, less jobs and further US credit rating downgrades.  Are you going to push back on the President and his propaganda squads and support a strong America, or are you going to sit idly by and watch our economy and country slide further into the abyss?

Obama to Boehner: ‘We Don’t Have a Spending Problem’

By Ben Shapiro, Breitbart.com

In an interview with Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal, newly re-elected House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) opened up about President Obama’s utter unwillingness to cut a single dollar from federal spending. In a stunning admission, Obama reportedly told Boehner, “We don’t have a spending problem.”

Boehner added that President Obama continues to maintain that America’s federal deficit is caused not by governmental overspending but by “a health-care problem.” Said Boehner, “They blame all of the fiscal woes on our health-care system.” Boehner told Obama, “Clearly we have a health-care problem, which is about to get worse with Obamacare. But, Mr. President, we have a very serious spending problem.” Obama eventually replied, “I’m getting tired of hearing you say that.”

Obama may be tired of hearing Boehner talk about a spending problem, particularly when Obama has been re-elected on the basis of ignoring government spending. Nonetheless, America does have a spending problem, which Obama is steadfastly ignoring. “He’s so ideological himself,” Boehner explained, “and he’s unwilling to take on the left of his own party.” That’s why Obama refused to raise the retirement age for Medicare after agreeing to it. “He admitted in meetings that he couldn’t sell things to his own members,” said Boehner. “But he didn’t even want to try … We could never get him to step up.”

Left Pushes Illegal Immigration “Reform” as Step to Permanent Democrat Control, Socialism

January 5, 2013 in Abuse of Power, Amnesty, Economic Deception, Fiscal Cliff, Welfare Fraud

The left’s purpose in America as in Massachusetts is to maintain a Permanent, Dependent Underclass that they can use to rig elections. Massachusetts has the 17th largest Illegal Alien population estimated at 87,000.  This past week  we learned via a Freedom of Information Request that we have 19,000 welfare recipients who are still receiving taxpayer dollars via direct deposit, even though we can’t locate them at their home addresses.

“[T]he net fiscal cost [per state] of immigration ranges from $11 billion to $22 billion per year, with most government expenditures on immigrants coming from state and local coffers, while most taxes paid by immigrants go to the federal treasury…”

“At the state and local level, an average of less than 5 percent of the public costs associated with illegal immigration is recouped through taxes collected from illegal aliens.”

Robert Rector and Christine Kim of the Heritage Foundation calculated that an average low-skilled immigrant household costs federal, local, and state governments $19,588 per year more than it pays in all.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies,  some Illegal Aliens also receive Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) grants even if they have an invalid Social Security Number.  Also, Some Illegal Aliens  receive Federal Additional Child Tax Credt (ACTC) grants.

If we allow Amnesty for Illegal Aliens, they will very quickly overrun all of our Safety Net Systems and will accelerate our drop over the Fiscal Cliff  into a Greece like “Taxageddon”.

The following story excerpted from Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal Blog:

Left Pushes Illegal Immigration “Reform” as Step to Permanent Democrat Control, Socialism

Submitted by  on January 5, 2013 – 4:46 am ESTNo Comment
The left, led by the US’s largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America, is about to start a huge push, starting with organized labor, to grant amnesty and citizenship to more than 12,000,000 illegal immigrants.They hope to make enough noise to allow their long time ally President Obama to claim a public mandate for an illegal immigrant amnesty.
Unions, before they were taken over by DSA, in 1995, were traditionally anti illegal immigration. Why the change?The reason is simple. Marxist led unions do not care about getting a better deal for their members. They care about achieving socialism. They understand that Latinos, which illegals mostly are, tend to vote overwhelmingly Democrat. The Marxists also have huge influence in the Democrat Party, and huge leverage over Democrat policy formation, through their locktight control of organized labor.

Therefore, giving illegals citizenship and voting rights could move America way to the left – forever.

Listen here to AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka, a longtime DSA supporter, put on his best fake sincerity “Judas goat” tone, to seduce union members into support their own destruction. This is almost barf bucket material,  as this hard bitten union thug,  invokes patriotism and American values,  to sell his socialist “snake oil”.

Now watch an identified DSA member, SEIU VP Eliseo Medina , speaking at a 2009 progressive conference in Washington DC. Medina, the leading immigration activist in the country, reveals the real reason for his efforts … 8,000,000 more Democratic voters, and a “progressive majority for the forseeable future”.

Rep Gohmert (R -TX) On Why he Voted Against Speaker Boehner

January 4, 2013 in Fiscal Cliff, Integrity, Patriotism, Political Courage, Speaker John Boehner, Tax Hike, Taxiation with Representation

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX), a principled an unrelenting spokesman for Fiscal Constraint and a signatory to the  Americans for Tax Reform’s Taxpayer Protection Pledge was one of a small group of Patriots that not only had the courage to vote against the “Fiscal Cliff”  Debacle, but also the  chutzpah to vote against chicken-hearted, Speaker Boehner.

Two Texas Republicans have defied Speaker John Boehner in the roll call vote to grant him another term running the U.S. House. Rep. Louie Gohmert of Tyler voted for Allen West, a tea partier from Florida who was defeated for reelection to Congress. And freshman Rep. Steve Stockman — who served one prior term, from 1995 to 1997 — voted “present.”

On a first round of voting, Stockman didn’t answer the clerk’s call of his name and he was among a small group given a second chance.

Other tea party-backed Texans fell in line with Boehner, and all the Democrats from Texas supported Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

play by play as votes are being tallied:

Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands, stopped by to chat with Gallego. Over in the GOP section, Reps. Ralph Hall of Rockwall, John Culberson of Houston and Ted Poe of Humble are in the front row. Laredo Democrat Henry Cuellar sauntered over to say hi.

Toward the back, freshman Rep. Roger Williams of Weatherford just posed for a photo with fellow Republicans Randy Neugebauer of Lubbock and Bill Flores of Bryan. And look at that,  there’s Cuellar again, chatting with Williams. Same row as Reps. Blake Farenthold of Corpus Christi.

Rep. Sam Johnson of Plano, wearing a neck brace, is seated in the same row, between Reps. John Carter of Round Rock and Pete Olson of Sugar Land.

And now, at 1:39, the gavel bangs for the official tally… Boehner wins another term as Speaker. He got 220 votes. Pelosi got 192. Runner-up: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, with 3 votes.

West got 2 votes.

Stockman was the only “present” vote.

MARK STEYN: ‘CLIFF BILL ‘SIGNALS TO WORLD THAT AMERICAN ERA IS OVER’

MARK STEYN: ‘CLIFF’ BILL ‘SIGNALS TO WORLD THAT AMERICAN ERA IS OVER’

FOX NEWS: Fox and Friends’ Brian Kilmeade sat down with best-selling author and columnist Mark Steyn to discuss the bill that was passed last night to avoid the fiscal cliff’s across-the-board tax hikes and spending cuts. President Obama applauded the bill, which raises tax rates only on those making more than $450,000 a year, puts off spending cuts and extends unemployment benefits. It also increases by two percent the Social Security payroll tax on all workers.

But Steyn believes the current spending, which is fueling a rapidly-growing national debt that has surpassed $16.4 trillion, is unsustainable and at some point will have to be supported by more taxes on all Americans.

“In a sense America voted for big government in November. What it didn’t vote for is the willingness to pay for it. We have the biggest gap between revenue and spending of any nation on Earth. So people have got to get real about this. If you want Swedish-style government, you have to pay Swedish-style taxes. And if you don’t, you have to grow up and learn to live within your means,” said Steyn.

The author of the book “After America” went on to point out that if the current debt-fueled spending continues, “you’re basically signaling to the world that the American era is over.”Kilmeade then asked what Steyn what he thinks President Obama plans to do over the next four years to address the situation.

“I think he’s got another agenda. … The thing to do is to get people used to the spending, which is about 25 percent of GDP. If he’s gotten people used to the spending, at some point people will have to pay for it the way the Norwegians pay for it, the way the Belgians pay for it. They will have to pay taxes that match what the government is spending. Obama has figured out if you get ‘em used to the spending, then two, three years down the line the taxes will fall his way,” said Steyn.

What has happened to Ann Coulter?

Ann Coulter used to be one of the shinning voices of the Conservative movement.  She could be counted on to verbally joust and destroy liberal opponents.

 

Suddenly she isn’t doing this.

Suddenly she is saying we should give in to Obama.

What has happened to Ann Coulter?

I must confess, I have been a fan of Ann Coulter for a long time.  I admire her writing and her writing has been something of an inspiration to me.

Yet I have to wonder what is going on.

Last year she came out for Mitt Romney in the primaries against a slew of other good and real conservatives.  She has spoken admiringly of that gelatinous blob and Al Gore certified source of hot air and global warming, Chris Christie.

Now, she has come out and said we should just give into Obama on taxes.

What?

Ann Coulter was on Hannity last night and she said that Republicans should agree to raise taxes on the rich because if we don’t and Obama pushes us off the fiscal cliff, the Republicans would be blamed.

She reminded Sean Hannity that Republicans lost the election.  So, in her mind, Obama is going to beat us on this issue so it is just better to surrender.

Ann, that is so John Boehner of you!

Let’s set a few records straight.  The Republicans did not lose the race.  Mitt Romney lost the race.  The Republican establishment, which gave us their hand picked candidate, lost the race.

Conservatives did not lose.  We did not have a horse in the race.  The election was an extreme liberal against a not as liberal Republican.  Coulter is right.  Obama and the drive-by media will blame Republicans no matter what.  They will blame Republicans for cracks in the sidewalk and a cloudy day.

So what?

Coulter is right that our messaging is worse than terrible.

But that is not a reason to surrenderIt is a reason for us to improve our messaging.  It is also a reason for us to change leaders and get rid of the RINOs who have done nothing but lead us to defeat after defeat.

A friend of mine posted a blog today in which he talked about the famous Revolutionary War hero, Admiral John Paul Jones.    Jones fought the enemy.  When his ship was on fire and sinking, a British Captain demanded his surrender.

Jones’ words became legend.

“I have not yet begun to fight.”

For America, for freedom and liberty we fight.  And we conservatives have not yet begun to fight.

Perhaps someone should remind Ann Coulter of the words of a great leader and hero of freedom: Sir Winston Churchill.

 

“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”

 

We shall fight on against Obama and the rest of his liberal cronies in the name of freedom.  Ann Coulter may surrender if she wishes.  We shall never surrender in our fight against socialism lest the lamp of liberty be extinguished in this God-blessed nation and we be forced to live the words of Ronald Reagan who warned of a day where we would tell our children and our grandchildren what it was like to grow up in a free America.

We shall never surrender.
