The following are our “Dear Leader” and “Deceiver in Chief” Barack Hussein Obama’s unmitigated lies: “It’s going to bring down skyrocketing costs. It’s going to save families money. It’s going to save businesses money. It’s going to save government money.” Megan Kelly: “That promise that “if you like your plan you can keep it . If you like your doctor you can keep him is not proving true for millions of Americans.” Daily Beast Columnist, Fox News Political Analyst, and Obama and Democratic Party staunch supporter, Kirsten Powers say, “Right!”
She goes on to say that she received the same letter as “everyone else” that her Health Insurance plan was being terminated and that in her exchange, if she wants to keep her $2500 deductible, her insurance will go from $160/ month to $300/ a month or an increase of 87.5% .
In his recent book, The Liberty Amendments, Mark Levin has provided us with a Constitutional path provided by our forefathers who foresaw a time when”-the Federal Government might breach the Constitution’s limit and begin oppressing the people.”
A path that can restore our Constitutional Republic and wrestle it away from our present “Functional Dictatorship” which continues to tighten its noose around our Liberties while our dysfunctional, elitist “Establishment Political Class” that permeates the Washington beltway, stands by catatonically.
The plan is to use our Constitution’s Article V Amendment process that states that upon the application of 2/3 of our state legislatures, a Convention shall be convened for the propose of proposing Amendments to our Constitution.
In the Liberty Amendments, Mark Levine provides some of his ideas for Amendments, but realizes that others may wish to add or subtract from his proposals as and he is fine with that.
So if we are to succeed we must begin to act immediately and move towards a 2/3 Majority of all state legislators. It will not happen overnight but we must be vigilant and patient if we are to succeed. We are in a war for survival and in war, as we have learned from the Progressive leaders our “Dear Leader” , Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their allies, they take no prisoners.
Our adversaries now know and understand that they must forcibly block this last route to our freedom at all costs, if they are to “fundamentally Transform” America away from our Constitutional Republic and its tenants that guarantee our “…certain unalienable Rights” of “…Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness –“
The following excerpt is from Mark Levin’s book The Liberty Amendments:
“For a century, the Statists have steadfastly constructed a federal Leviathan, distorting and evading our constitutional system in pursuit of an all-powerful, ubiquitous central government. The result is an ongoing and growing assault on individual liberty, state sovereignty, and the social compact. Levin argues that if we cherish our American heritage, it is time to embrace a constitutional revival.
The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when—despite their best efforts to forestall it—the Federal government might breach the Constitution’s limits and begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as Obamacare demonstrate that the Framers’ fear was prescient. Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution. The second was intended for our current circumstances—empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seeking recourse, using the method called for in the Constitution itself.
The Framers adopted ten constitutional amendments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth eleven specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers’ design. His proposals—such as term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices and limits on federal taxing and spending—are pure common sense, ideas shared by many. They draw on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers—including James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and numerous lesser-known but crucially important men—in their content and in the method for applying them to the current state of the nation.
Now is the time for the American people to take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them. The task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free.”
On August 5th 2011 in an unprecedented move, the Standard & Poors Rating Agency lowered the Debt Rating of the United States from AAA to AA+. The lowered rating represented the first downgrade in 70 years and was preceded by numerous warnings to our government that the unprecedented Debt by the Obama Administration was crippling our economy and”..had grown increasingly skeptical that Washington policy makers would make significant progress in reducing the deficit, given the tortured talks over raising the debt ceiling.”
“S&P said the downgrade “reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government’s medium-term debt dynamics.” It also blamed the weakened “effectiveness, stability, and predictability” of U.S. policy making and political institutions at a time when challenges are mounting. ”
S&P also put the new grade on “negative outlook,” meaning the U.S. has little chance of regaining the top rating in the near term.”
Barack Hussein Obama is now jawboning Congress for even more fiscally irresponsible $Trillions in debt to satisfy his lust for a a new Socialist Order in America and this lawsuit appears to be a warning shot across the bow of S&P.
It will also serve as a warning to the other Rating Agencies not to challenge the Obama Administrations continuing black hole Debt lest they too succumb to the same fate that faces S&P .
Congressional Democrats introduced a new and broader assault-weapons ban Thursday, in a vivid press conference that included a display of various weapons they want to outlaw.
It was a measure that was quickly condemned by the National Rifle Association as an assault on the Constitution, “instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system.”
“The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein’s wrong-headed approach,” spokeswoman Andrew Arulanandam said.
The measure was written by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who was behind the original 1994 assault-weapons ban which expired in 2004. It marks the first major legislative step since President Obama, in the wake of the Newtown school shooting, called for new gun control measures including a new and stronger assault-weapons ban.
“Our weak gun laws allow these mass killings to be carried out again, and again, and again in our country,” Feinstein said. “Weapons, designed originally for the military to kill large numbers of people in close combat, are replicated for civilian use.”
She said the bill she and her colleagues are introducing would bar the “sale, transfer, manufacture and importation” of assault weapons. It would also ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
As part of the press conference, lawmakers displayed an array of weapons, including a Colt AR-15, a semi-automatic assault rifle, and an Intratec TEC-9, a semi-automatic handgun.
The move comes after NBC News host David Gregory faced an investigation for displaying a banned magazine on a Sunday show in the District — but the Senate sergeant-at-arms office said the weapons were displayed Thursday in “compliance” with all applicable laws.
The office said they are “authentic” and in the custody of the Philadelphia and D.C. police departments, which brought them.
The weapons ban, though, faces long odds even after last month’s mass school shooting in the state of Connecticut.
In a statement, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said the proposal would have done “nothing” to prevent the Newtown tragedy and vowed to fight to defeat the bill.
“Washington politicians shouldn’t be taking advantage of recent tragedy to try to push an aggressive gun control agenda. Real assault weapons — machine guns — are already functionally illegal, and they have been since 1934,” he said.
The last ban expired in 2004 when Congress refused to renew it under pressure from the National Rifle Association, a gun advocacy group. There’s continuing disagreement about the effectiveness of the original assault-weapons ban, and measures like beefed-up background checks on gun sales may be more likely to pass.
Definitions of what qualifies as an assault weapon have varied over time and across states.
According to a summary from Feinstein’s office, her bill would place bans on 120 “specifically named firearms,” as well as certain other semiautomatic guns — and those with a fixed magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds.
While the 1994 law defined an assault weapon as one that had, in most cases, a detachable magazine and at least two characteristics as set by Congress, the new bill would define an assault weapon as one that meets just one of those characteristics.
Some of those characteristics for rifles in the old law included a pistol grip, a folding stock and a bayonet mount. But the Feinstein bill would strip what her office describes as “easy-to-remove” characteristics like the bayonet mount from that list.
Feinstein’s office says the bill would grandfather in weapons legally owned before enactment and exempt more than 900 “specifically named weapons” for hunting or sporting purposes.
Former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani says, “Gun Control affects the ‘good guys”. The bad guys aren’t affected by gun control. You tell them they can’t have an assault weapon. They say go to hell. We’re going to have our Assault weapons. You say the magazine should only be 7, they keep their 15.”
Law enforcement officials from a New York region where a local paper published a map identifying gun owners say prisoners are using the information to intimidate guards.
Rockland County Sheriff Louis Falco, who spoke at a news conference flanked by other county officials, said the Journal News’ decision to post an online map of names and addresses of handgun owners Dec. 23 has put law enforcement officers in danger.
“They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live. That’s not acceptable to me,” Falco said, according to Newsday.
Robert Riley, an officer with the White Plains Police Department and president of its Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, agreed.
“You have guys who work in New York City who live up here. Now their names and addresses are out there, too,” he said adding that there are 8,000 active and retired NYPD officers currently living in Rockland County.
Local lawmakers also say that they intend to introduce legislation that prevents information about legal gun owners from being released to the public.
The newspaper published the online map last month alongside an article titled, “The gun owner next door: What you don’t know about the weapons in your neighborhood.” The map included the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
While the paper ostensibly sought to make a point about gun proliferation in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., the effort may have backfired. A blogger reacted with a map showing where key editorial staffers live, and some outraged groups have called for a boycott of parent company Gannett’s national advertisers. Ironically, the newspaper has now stationed armed guards outside at least one of its offices.

“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing–when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors–when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you– when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self sacrifice- you may know that your society is doomed.”

Our Political Class is considering confiscating your private retirement accountknown as your 401k in order to “pay down the deficit?” A total deficit that is now being estimated at over $86 Trillion. Far Left Socialist professor, Teresa Ghilarducci of the New School of Social Research, describes 401(k)s and related plans as a failed experiment. For about ten years she has argued for government confiscation of 401k plans. In October 2008, Democrats were so enthralled with her unconstitutional confiscatory plan that they actually asked her to testify before their subcommittee.
After her testimony, James Pethokoukis wrote in Money on October 23d that:
“Ghilarducci would offer a lousy 3 percent return. The long-run return of the stock market, adjusted for inflation, is more like 7 percent. Look at it this way: Ten thousand dollars growing at 3 percent a year for 40 years leaves you with roughly $22,000. But $10,000 growing at 7 percent a year for 40 years leaves you with $150,000. That is a high price to pay for what Ghilarducci describes as the removal of “a source of financial anxiety and…fruitless discussions with brokers and financial sales agents, who are also desperate for more fees and are often wrong about markets.” Please, I’ll take a bit of worry for an additional $128,000.”
Would you believe that Ghilarducci’s plan is now actively being discussed in the “Cliff Talks” . Not so good you say? It gets worse. Also being floated is the idea that when you pass on to your Great Reward, your annunity would terminate. There would be no payout to your heirs. If you already feel like the government has stolen your retirement through the Social Security ponzi scheme, you had better speak out before your 401k is seized and redistributed to freeloaders as a solution to ward off the fiscal cliff.
The following article from our friends at the Pittsburgh Tea Party Movement demonstrates statistics that indicates that Pennsylvania is already well on the road to Obam-Nomicsand a “Welfare State”.

The Blaze has an outstanding article ‘Welfare Nation’: The Sad Truth which includes a study by Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Please check out the study from our Secretary of Public Welfare.The article includes facts such as:
For every 1.65 employed persons in the private sector, one person receives welfare assistance;
For every 1.25 employed persons in the private sector, one person receives welfare assistance or works for the government;
It makes more financial sense for a single mom to earn $29,000 and get government subsidies than for that single mom to earn $69,000; and
It is now more lucrative – in the form of actual disposable income – to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work, as shown below:

(CNN) – Following Mitt Romney’s loss to President Barack Obama, conservative leaders wasted no time Wednesday offering pointed criticism of the Republican Party and its pick for president.
A coalition of social conservatives and tea party activists gathered in Washington to decry what they described as Romney’s failure to represent conservatives on a national level.
“We wanted someone who would fight for us. What we got was a weak, moderate candidate, hand-picked by the Beltway elites and country club establishment wing of the Republican Party,” Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, said in a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington.
“The presidential loss is unequivocally on them,” she added.
Pushed from the right in the Republican presidential primary, Romney sought to paint himself as “severely conservative,” though the former Massachusetts governor had taken Democratic positions on certain issues in his political past.
Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center, argued that Romney failed to pass the ideological test, saying he ran as a “Democrat-light” and adjusted his positions to campaign as a moderate during the general election.
“At the end of the day, conservatives were left out in the cold. It should have been a landslide for Romney, had he embraced a truly conservative agenda,” Bozell said. “But Romney’s a moderate and his campaign embarked on a bizarre…defense from the outset.”
He further faulted the GOP presidential nominee for not adopting a political strategy of defining his opponent and going on the attack early on. Citing the president’s record, Bozell argued “it should have been a cakewalk for Romney to define (the president), but he didn’t–hence Obama’s victory.”
On social issues, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the anti-abortion rights group Susan B. Anthony List, blasted the candidate for not making abortion a central part of the 2012 dialogue.
“He took all the right stances,” she said. “The problem was not communicating on the national stage with Obama what his actual positions were.”
The group endorsed Romney after he unofficially became the nominee in April when former Sen. Rick Santorum dropped out of the race. Dannenfelser said they were “happy to endorse him when the time came” but expressed frustration when she said “we assumed, that given who he was, he would make (abortion) more of a national issue.”
Looking at the party on a macro-level, activists also acknowledged Republicans had work to do in terms of adapting to the country’s demographic changes. Alfred Regnery, president of the Paul Revere Project, issued a stark warning for the GOP.
“If Republicans don’t start to listen to (what minorities are looking for in a candidate), it’s going to be a long time before they can win,” he said.
His comments echoed those made my former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who earlier Wednesday said on CNN that the party now faces a “very serious moment” and argued the GOP should work on becoming more inclusive–a major challenge, he said, for House Republicans.
“The question is do they want to, in a disciplined way, create a schedule and a program and include people who are not traditionally Republican?” he said.
All the activists at the press conference agreed that Tuesday’s election signaled a need for the GOP to re-institute more conservative “fundamentals.” While some argue the Republican Party’s failure to retake the Senate or make gains in the House suggests the tea party is losing steam, the group of individuals Wednesday argued the opposite.
Given this week’s results, they said, conservatives will be even more motivated to reform the party. Richard A. Viguerie, chairman of ConservatieHQ.com, ended the press conference with one final prediction.
“Tea partiers will take over the Republican Party within four years,” he said.
Bill O’Reilly asks: What The Heck Happened Last Night Nov 6?
The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers.
The U-3 unemployment rate is the monthly headline number. The U-6 unemployment rate is the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) broadest unemployment measure, including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work part-time because they cannot find full-time employment.
You should notice that the Blue seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate curve or trend diverts (Goes in the opposite direction) from previous administration’s unemployment data.
This suggests that the Barack Hussein Administration is somehow “cooking the books”.
As you may know, it has become increasingly difficult for individuals and groups to read or hear responsible reporting of political events publicized through our national news channels. With few exceptions, it would also appear that with Benghazi-gate, America’s “Free Press” has finally fully succumbed to a political party’s “Propaganda Machine” and has now become fully immersed as a willing co-conspirator in suppressing politically sensitive misconduct.
Consequently, it has once again come own to us as individuals, who have access and knowledge of these misconducts, to spread the alarm and inform family and friends before our Capitalist Republic is transformed into a 3d world Socialist Dictatorship.
