From WND

There was very little notice for most of America in regards to the “Emergency House Call on Congress”. With the protest being organized only about one week before the event was to occur, the turn out was impressive. At least 10,000 or more people descended on the nations capitol to let Congress know that the current health care bill presented by democrats is not what Americans want. They chanted phrases like, “Hands off our health care,” and “Kill the bill.”

It was a peaceful demonstration that was lead by Michele Bachmann and Pete Hoekstr. The group was there with urgency with voting possible as early as Saturday and since the health care legislation presented will not only cost the nation upwards of $1.1 trillion dollars, but will also lead to a decline in the quality of care that is received in our country. It will empower the government with authority they are not meant to have over our lives; it will take away freedom and consumer choice.

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. – Ben Franklin

There are many types of people who we come across throughout life, most of those to my good fortune have been hard-working, good-natured individuals that are bent on doing right and making an honest living. But on occasion, especially in the recent years, I have met some who are perfectly happy living off of others, or as I use to know it, being freeloaders. I have heard many times over, “Why go get a job when welfare pays more?” Or, “I’m not going to look for a job until my unemployment is almost up because it pays better.” And of course other similar remarks have come about too.

This seems to be an epidemic in our country now. Gone is the “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country,” attitude. It has been replaced with the notion that the government owes you something, if not everything. That you are somehow entitled to things you have never even worked for or tried to achieve. We have become a nation of many who are far too dependent on government for their needs and too selfish to care about the freedoms they give up in place of an easy mediocre life. And so, when big government rears its head as “help” and “hope” they immediately leap onto the train without a thought as to where is it’s true destination.

Once again, as we have seen numerous times in the previous months, Washington is seeking to expand what it seems to be a generous arm to help the people by extending unemployment benefits by up to 20 weeks and also extending the home buyer tax credit. In a 98-0 vote, the Senate passed the $24 billion Worker, Homeownership and Business Assistance Act of 2009 plunging our nation further into unnecessary and unprecedented debt. Will this help the issue with job loss? No, it will only pay those who are unmotivated to stay that way for 20 more weeks at the expense of the taxpayers who are still working. Will it help the economy? No, it will make those who are working hold on to their money that much more knowing that tax increase is inevitable to pay for the multiple bailouts backed by insufficient funds.

All the while it may help few that really are trying desperately to find a job, but it is increasing national debt, enabling freeloaders, and allowing more government control of business. What is needed right now is less spending and less government to get America back on track. This is a bipartisan step in the wrong direction. And with the Obama administration crushing American’s faith in capitalism, ruining the U.S. dollar, implementing unnecessary programs, and pushing to pass more government take over, you can bet that the dependency on the government will only grow at an accelerated pace. It is ironic that those who are in majority at Washington right now are called Progressives because we as a country are clearly regressing. We are moving away from a free society and towards socialism.

ocare2If you have been looking for another opportunity to show the Obama administration that you are not going to let your freedoms go laying down then here’s your chance! There is going to be a march on Washington November 05, 2009 to stop Obamacare from be shoved down America’s throat. Join GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann on the steps of the Capitol at 12:00pm and help put a halt to passing socialized medicine.

And since you are probably in desperate need of another boring over sized pile of papers to read here is the 1900 page health care bill from Pelosi herself. I don’t recommend printing it out though, it’s not worth the paper. http://health.burgess.house.gov/UploadedFiles/House_HCR_bill.pdf

Republican Scozzafava endorses Democrat after dropping out of race for New York’s 23rd Congressional District after realizing that she can not win. This needs to be a realization for all the GOP to get the Rhinos out, move the Moderates aside, and bring back the Conservatives. At least the Democratic candidate was supported by a group sharing the same ideals; it would have not been even a close win for Scozzafava because of the difference in the beliefs held by her and her supporting party. This was a complete waste of time, money, and effort in the Republican party when they could have easily gone with much more of a true “right-winger”. But for now, it looks as though a good candidate will likely be voted in for the Conservative party. I am all for third parties, but unfortunately, it is usually the more well-funded individuals who have the higher chances.

Just for a good laugh, check out Joe Biden’s ridiculous rant. Sounds like he is encouraging dissent as long as it is in line with the Obama agenda. And be sure to see how he jumps back to Sarah Palin at the end, he just can’t get over his recent disagreement with her on energy.

Once upon a time there was a great nation built on free market and capitalism. The whole world knew you could come to America with nothing in your wallet and turn it into something prosperous. Many families of this nation have these stories of distant relatives coming from other countries with nothing and with a little hard work and some risk would make something of themselves. Well, I have to break it to you, those days are probably gone. The days of capitalism are dwindling as Washington D.C. is appearing more like Moscow in the late Soviet Union, than the United States of America that we knew and loved as under administrations like President Reagan. With big government taking control of most of the large corporations in the U.S. they are now finding it acceptable to regulate pay too. This idea is surely making our founding fathers roll in their graves!

Just recently the pay czar, Ken Feinberg, authorized the pay cuts of 50-90% for many CEOs who’s companies participated in the government bailout. This didn’t include all the companies that participated, no, it was only seven certain ones: Bank of America Corp., American International Group Inc., Citigroup Inc., General Motors, GMAC, Chrysler and Chrysler Financial. The two big ones who’s CEOs will not receive pay cuts are Goldman Sachs and GE. The reason being because these companies are going along with every major policy decision of the Obama administration.

These bought out, er, I mean bailed out companies are not the only targets though. This is also to include any business that the government, the treasury, or possibly, the fed deems is too economically important to fail. That would mean small business too, or the Chamber of Commerce who represents over 3 million businesses that engage in the free-market system. This administration wants to control your right to make money! The Federal Reserve in correlation with Ken Feinberg, has also proposed to monitor pay packages at thousands of banks, including those that never received bailout money. And this proposal covers a huge scope of nearly 6,000 banks and a wide range of employees, everything from executives to traders to loan officers.

Excuse me, but I am most positive that there is no where in the constitution that gives the executive branch the authority to regulate what privately owned businesses should pay their employees. I know some of you might say that because these companies took buy out, I mean bailout money that the government has every right to regulate their salaries. However, if that was the case instead of the administration making these decisions it should be the people whose money was used for the stimulus, but even that is not constitutional.

So here we are again looking at the Obama administration making anti-capitalist decisions leading us down the road of socialism to the town of communism. Which in essence is when the government is in charge of the economy. Is this the true intentions disguised by President Obama? And is this really what those who voted him into office had in mind when promised a new kind of politics? I would like to think not.  Like it or not, capitalism is what has made this country strong. Like a family to be formed starting with a Mother and a Father, in a successful society there must be those who make enough money to pay those whom they employee. A classless society where there is no wealthy may sound Utopian to some, but it can not, has not, and will not ever work.

Capitalism- an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market.

Communism- a : a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics b : a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production c : a final stage of society in Marxist theory in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably d : communist systems collectively. ( Like Health Care Reform)

Marxism- the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx; especially : a theory and practice of socialism including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, the class struggle, and dictatorship of the proletariat until the establishment of a classless society.

Glenn Beck Show 10/23/09

I posted the video of Lord Christopher Monckton’s warning of the coming Climate Change treaty yesterday. At that time I did not feel that I had enough information to write on the issue. Although I can not find a copy of the actual treaty to be signed, I have gathered information on it from enough sources to know that what I do have is indeed true.

This December the United Nations will be holding a Climate Change Convention in Copenhagen. It is to address the ridiculous, and recently proved incorrect, notion that mankind is destroying the planet with CO2 emissions. The main idea was to punish the countries and industries that have contributed the largest amount of “damage” by having them pay other countries who have not contributed so much, or what the they are saying is payment for a climate debt. This alone is a huge and unprecedented tax on everyone that will inevitably bring about the final collapse of the American economy. But that is not all.

According to Lord Christopher Monckton today on a Glenn Beck interview, this treaty will allow the set up of a world government. The word “government” actually appears on paragraph 36 and 38. Lord Monckton states:

“There will be a new vast interlocking bureaucratic entity created at huge expense to you and me and that bureaucratic entity will have three purposes, the first of which is twice stated to be government. The second purpose is stated to be the transfer or redistribution of wealth from countries like ours to third world countries in reparation for what is described in the treaty as climate debt.”

“Now, the third element in the task of this new government will be what is called enforcement. In other words, the power of the new government to make Democratic countries hand over their cash, whether they like it or not.”

And President Obama is completely ready to sign this treaty. He has been on board with it from the beginning. We have heard Obama say that his administration is determined to combat climate change, and right after taking office he made it a national priority. As with most liberals and progressives, the environmental movement is at the top of the to do list. The reason is not to save the whales, or the polar ice caps; it is all about the ever so sought after power over others. And in an effort to appease world leaders and reserve his place in the world government, I fear President Obama will not hesitate when at this Climate Change Convention.

I know you are thinking what I did, this is never going to happen. In order for a treaty to be passed it must be ratified by 2/3 majority in the Senate. Of course, we hopefully do not have this many politicians in the Senate willing to give up U.S. Sovereignty (giving that everyone would actually take the time to read it). So there is no danger of this passing even if Obama does commit this act of treason and sign the treaty, right? I’m not entirely sure. From what I have found, and please correct me if I am wrong, if the Senate does not ratify the treaty then Obama can get it enacted into domestic law by a simple majority in both houses. That can, however, be repealed. But the Obama administration can get the states and the cities to get on board with the Climate Change treaty saying that it is what they want and take it to Supreme Court. Then the court will look for the direction in which the country and the world is moving, and then they can give the okay.

This is a communistic vision, one in which is not hard to pick out. We were even warned of this in 2007 by Czech President Vaclav Klaus who said, “It becomes evident that while discussing climate we are not witnessing a clash of views about the environment, but a clash of views about human freedom.” And communism, according to Wikipedia, is socioeconomic structure and political ideology that promotes the establishment of an egalitarian, classless, stateless society based on common ownership and control of the means of production and property in general.

Environmentalism is basically communism in disguise. It is a more subtle and an easier way to get people to peacefully (or so they think) way to hand over their rights. As the article Environmentalism vs. Communism: Is There a Difference?, it says:

“Since the years of the Cold War began winding down, a new threat has faced our nation and has now spread throughout the world. It’s seemingly innocent attempt to save the planet from human destruction is nothing more than an attempt to stifle capitalist economies and provide governments of industrialized nations an unprecedented amount of control over their populations. It is a movement that would make even Stalin proud.”

This is what we are seeing in this Climate Change treaty, except on a global scale. The United Nations as a whole is trying to take over the world’s economy and freedoms. This will no doubt take a heavy toll on the United States of America, who is being blamed for a large amount of the false damage to the environment. We will face mass taxes without representation, and have the majority of the U.S. economy shut down. It is a step towards having the freedom and rights that we take for granted right now stripped away from us without giving time to blink.

Here is a great eye opening explanation of communism. The comparisons of the communist take over of Russia and the current events in the USA are absolutely chilling.

I do not have all the facts as of yet, but the information given in this video from what I have found seems to be accurate. It was also addressed on the Rush Limbaugh show today as well. I will of course write an article when I have more information. In the mean time, here it is, a video which as stated in the information, “On October 14th 2009, Lord Christopher Monckton, a noted climate change expert, gave a presentation at Bethel College in St. Paul, MN in which he issued a dire warning regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty which is scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.”

UPDATE:

If you are up for some new reading material, here is the “Framework Convention on Climate Change” documentation in pdf. It may provide some insight into what is instore for this upcoming “convention”.

When I originally posted this I was not sure as to the full extent of the truth, but everything I have found so far points to it as true.

When does the pursuit of peace become a threat to national security? One would think that allowing another country, one with a history of hostile intent, to take inventory of your nuclear arsenal would be at the top of that list of things not to do to cross that line. In order to maintain peace you have to maintain strength, according to the Reagan administration, which kept America safe for the entire term of Reagan’s presidency. To maintain strength, you must be able to have the upper hand in the possible event of a dispute taking place. For your enemy to know where you keep your top secret weapons gives them the advantage and the knowledge to take out your defense before or during the attack. What is there to keep your opponent from taking you out? If they know your moves, your weakness, your ability, they can prepare for combat and dramatically increase the likely hood of their success.

This is the scenario that the Obama administration is trying to carry out right now. President Obama is allowing Hillary Clinton to meet with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to form a treaty between the US and Russia. This treaty would allow the Russians to visit nuclear sites in America to count missiles and warheads. As put in the Fox News article, this “would constitute the most intrusive weapons inspection program the U.S. has ever accepted.” I do not know if Obama is keeping in mind that a favorite revered Russian past time is the strategic game of chess, lining up all their pieces perfectly before the irrevocable strike to debilitate their adversary.

Surly, being elected as President, Obama is not that naive. I would bet that he knows fully that this is another move to weaken America as we have seen in past actions by this President. He has weakened America by crippling our military by cutting out top weapons and funding, plunging the U.S. into staggering debt and unemployment, bowing to foreign leadership, releasing interrogation techniques, shutting down missile defense in Poland which left our east coast vulnerable to missile strikes, and showing our allies that the U.S. is no longer one that can be trusted.  This latest atrocity, allowing Russia access to our Nuclear missiles and warheads, seems to be yet another step in the direction that the Obama administration has laid out in their agenda of the once great United States of America.

***Just a little note, upon researching this, most news articles have this story somewhat hidden in titles like “Clinton Arrives In Russia For Talks On Iran, Nuclear Arms” and “Clinton To Focus On Iran, Arms Reduction During Russia Visit”. It seems that most everyone is tip toeing around it and barely touching the story when it really is a big deal.***

Over the past 10 months of Barack Obama’s presidency we have seen many new people added to the members of the White House. The vast majority of these new people, put into place by President Obama, have Marxist or Communist ties of some sort. A number of them are open about it, being members of revolutionary groups and citing known Communists or Marxists in speeches in the recent past. And others are a little more hidden, being uncovered by past remarks, friends, associates, and writings that were never made well known. Is this purely a coincidence? I honestly do not think that is the case. It is proven time and again through history that you are who your friends are, and you usually hold many of the same views as the company you keep. Why would President Obama put into power so many people with one common factor? I’m sure you already know the answer.

Here is the latest reveal of yet another White House authority, Anita Dunn, the communication’s director. She stated that Mao Tse Tung (a mass murderer responsible for more deaths than Hitler) was one of her favorite political philosophers, one that she turns to the most. And she directly quoted him while giving a speech to an audience of high school students. (video below)

Is it any surprise now that, with Ms. Dunn being the communication’s director, of the White House communication’s staff is now plotting a more aggressive way to deal with news stories that they find unflattering? Not at all, she is not the first in the Obama administration to attack free speech. But she is on the rampage. She told Time Magazine this week, “that she and her team were no longer going to “just sit back and defend ourselves, because [conservative media] will say anything. They will take any small thing and distort it.” She also said in a telephone interview as reported by NYTimes, “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”

We can clearly see, that Anita Dunn is like a child who has been caught steeling. She is kicking and screaming, trying to point the finger at anyone but herself. In this case, she is pointing at the one’s who have called her out, the conservative media. This is a normal liberal tactic to divert attention from their agenda. But the video of Ms. Dunn, like the many videos of other White House authorities, shows that there is no distortion, only the facts. And the facts are, the people being put into power in the Obama administration are heavily relying on and favoring Marxist and Communist tactics and policy.

I just thought that this article was something that everyone should read. What ever happened to Global Warming? I’m sorry, I forgot, they have changed it to Global Climate Change.  Truth of the matter is for the past decade the Earth has actually been in a cooling stage. According to Phil Brennan on NewsMax.com, “The planet is not warming. Hasn’t warmed since around 1998. Instead, it’s cooling, and scientists say that it’s going to continue to cool for at least the next 20 or 30 years.” As stated in his article, “It’s getting cooler and has been since around the year 2000.” I don’t know about you, but that sure sounds like to me that we might be heading for a new mini-ice age.  Do yourself a favor and read the article on Idaho seed potato crops being threatened by, no not warm weather, but instead extreme cold temperatures. It makes one think twice about why the liberals and progressives are still pushing the Cap and Slave and other “environmentally necessary” programs despite the abundant evidence against warming. Money? I think that is probably the only remaining reason. It will only lay a huge financial burden on the countries trying to implement it. Is this a wise decision during the economic state of the United States of America? Unfortunately, time will tell.  May God help us all.
