Knowing what you know now, would you have the courage or determination to stop Adolf Hitler if he were still in power today? What if he were doing to your own country what he did to so many others? Would you then take action? I sure hope so. It is based on my belief that most of us would actually take action against him today that I write this article. Hitler is no longer with us, of course, but his puppeteers and the organization that HE reported to are still very much alive and well. So my question to you is, what are you, as an American and a Christian willing to do about those who are even worse that the evil Fuhrer?

Fact: Hitler’s fascist dream was fully funded by those who were more rich and powerful than he was. In fact, this was done specifically as a test to determine whether or not the fascist economy was feasible. Hitler provided the perfect character and Germany provided the perfect demographics to those who were pulling the strings for this experiment.  (See Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler by Anthony Sutton)

So, who are these puppeteers? Unfortunately their presence is vast and found abundantly in every government throughout the world. They represent the top 10% of the entire wealth of the world. They perpetuate their desires for more money and more power through organizations such as the New World Order, the United Nations, the Tri-lateral Commission, the Illuminati, and other like organizations. Yes, the Nazi movement was funded by American AND European international bankers. The whole plan was not simply to take over Germany, but more specifically to take over Russia which had a great deal of land mass, population, and natural resources. As any student of Russian history can see, this powerful group of conspirators has been very successful in running Russia and its Communistic agenda. As you know, WWII was able to bring about much destruction to Russia, and it was certainly successful in infiltrating their monetary system, government, and culture which remains in place today. (These same groups also funded and manipulated the Bolshevik Revolution, prior to WWII in order to pave the way for their plans. John Schiff, for example, a very prominent member of the New York wealthy contributed about $20,000,000 for the Bolshevik Revolution. There were also many other New York firms who contributed as well. (See Secret Records Revealed by Dennis Laurence Cuddy, PhD, pg. 28). So, what’s next? Where else is there an intelligent and talented population, a great deal of land mass, and natural resources? Um…that would be the United States of America. A reasonable, yet diabolical, plan would be to crumble the United States while also perpetuating the threat of conflict between these two powerhouse nations. While such an assertion will officially “out” me as a “nut,” I feel that I must shed some light on this matter because I know it’s true. I know this is real. I pray that there are those who will read this and ask themselves some of the same questions.

As I was doing some more research recently regarding the Federal Reserve, NWO, and the United Nations, I was struck with this concept. I found myself asking this question: “Surely no American would tolerate Hitler’s behavior today, but would they be willing to tolerate the actions and sheer evil of those who influenced Hitler?” I have to believe that the answer is NO. I have to believe that Americans will wake up to the fact that we are being manipulated in every possible, way, shape, and form possible by those who believe they pull the strings and hold all of the power. I may be naïve to think that we would all look up from our Guitar Hero II, Facebook, or other addictions long enough to take notice of what is actually going on, let alone do something about it. But I can at least hope.

So what is it exactly that “they” are doing? They are carrying out their objective to rewrite our entire way of life. The New World Order for example has a very clear and concise set of goals.

1)     Abolish Monarch and all ordered Government

2)     Abolish Private Property

3)     Abolish Inheritance

4)     Abolish Patriotism

5)     Abolish the Family

6)     Abolish all religion

(See World Revolution by Nesta Webster)

Well, let’s look at the first one. They sure are making a dent, aren’t they? What government we do have has been infiltrated with ulterior motives, complacency, and every possible violation against the U.S. Constitution possible. We cease to have a government when our government officials are acting improperly and in violation of our own laws. In spite of us having three branches of government intended to uphold and protect the U.S. Constitution, every branch of our government has succumbed to corruption and treasonous acts. Our executive branch, for example–Clinton illegally calling us into the war in Kosovo for 78 days. Only Congress has such authority and yet Clinton got away with it without so much as a “boo” from anyone. No Congressional investigation. No media coverage. No outcry. Legislation is taking place from our Judiciary branch of government rather than upholding the law. Did you know that you’re not even permitted to bring up the Constitution when arguing a case?! You have to cite another, previous case. You cannot bring up the U.S. Constitution when supporting a case and expect it to have any weight! Lastly we have our legislative branch supporting illegal and unconstitutional laws knowingly, and even worse unknowingly, because they can’t be bothered to even read the proposed legislation. So why are these persons behaving this way and compromising everything we hold dear? Because they are clearly being influenced by those who have the money. Why in the world do you think that we went after Saddam Hussein instead of some enemies of the U.S. who are an even bigger threat to us such as some Chinese persons? Oh, that would be because we can’t make any waves with the Chinese. They own us. They are carrying too much of our debt.  Instead we manipulate the media and portray Hussein as enemy number 1, bring about a war so that the “powers that be” can reap huge profits, and do the bidding as the world’s police enforcement as desired by the United Nations. Yeah, Hussein was horrid. But he’s nowhere NEAR the threat that the media would have had us believe. We simply had to be manipulated to be completely behind the war against him and his nation in order for the plan to be carried out. We don’t even have to go outside of our own country to find villains who are much worse than Hussein. Our government is definitely not intact, folks.

Second: Private Property. Yup. They’ve pretty much demolished that as indicated by the big check that everyone has to write this time of year. Even with a completely free and clear home, we are still obligated to pay our property taxes.  We also have to pay taxes again and again on the supplies which we purchase for our business. You see folks, if you don’t have property, you are not truly free. We all instinctively require a place to call home. We need a holy abode that is ours to flourish in, raise a family, teach, worship, and live as we please. If we never truly have our own home, then we are never free to just be. This is precisely why private property is on the radar of the conspirators.

Third: Inheritance. This is the same as private property. Death is inevitable to all men. But if we have a bunch of oppressive and overwhelming laws that makes the passing down of property and wealth to someone else then it compounds and makes a lay citizen wealthy with time. However, if the inheritance is taxed out the wazoo, then with every death that takes place in our nation, the powerful become more wealthy and it’s only a matter of time until they own the majority of it all.

Fourth: Patriotism. Do I need to address anything else other than how the DHS heads are attempting to portray the patriotic in this nation? Remember, the media is OWNED, lock, stock and barrel, by the wealthy conspirators. They got paid plenty of money to portray the Tea Parties with unrepeatable descriptions!  (Also, keep in mind that DHS came to be because of an act of war. Contrived? Yup. Coincidence? I think not.)

Fifth: The abolishment of the family. In other words marriage, morality, the education of our children, etc. are all under attack. Let’s diminish the role of the parents in the lives of the children. Let’s minimize the value of a child. Let’s tax married couples more than we tax single parents. That’s right. Let’s assign a financial penalty for being married and then while we’re at it, let’s desecrate what marriage even is. Let’s give the government authority to step in and take children from their parents without any legal prudence. In fact, just to show how worthless a marriage and fidelity is, let’s elect prominent government officials and parade around their infidelity! Also, let’s keep siblings away from each other. Forget that there is a foster family that’s fully willing to take ALL THREE boys under the age of 8 into their loving home. Let’s be a just plain stupid judge and send one of the boys to a foster home that doesn’t have the time, inclination, or desire to take care of him. Yup. The very existence of a family is under attack at every possible turn.

And lastly, abolish religion. This is the most frightening one of all. In the name of “religious freedom” all three branches of our government have curbed the freedom of religious expression to make broad room for the expression of NO religion. Don’t people realize that Satanism and atheism is not a religion? The founding fathers intended to protect religion, not those who have no religious belief. I can burn a flag, but I cannot pledge to it. I can get on my knees in submission to a warrantless arrest, but I cannot kneel in prayer in public lands. Yes, our religious freedom, our families, our patriotism, our inheritance of values and property, as well as our property and government have all been chiseled down to represent a more fascist world of power.

So in closing, I ask the same question I began with. Are you willing to stop the very same evil that drove Hitler’s actions?

God Button Home DepotToday’s news shares a disturbing story of a man who was FIRED from his job at Home Depot for wearing a pin—a pin which he’d been wearing every day for over a year. What horrible message did this pin convey? It’s an American flag with says “One Nation Under God, Indivisible.” Horrific, right?

What’s horrific is that Home Depot fired the man because he refused to remove it and replace it with their store sanction pin which states “United We Stand.”  Kind of hypocritical don’t you think? Unless this guy is “united” with the anti-religious and anti-patriotic stand of Home Depot he loses his livelihood!

What concerns me most about this is that the pin was not simply a religious one in nature. It was a quotation from our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance. To me, Home Depot’s behavior in this matter is an act of treason, plain and simple. So I implore every Christian American to PLEASE boycott Home Depot. We must fight back on these issues folks while we still can! Please let your voices be heard!! Contact Home Depot today and let them know that their actions are not acceptable to We The People of this great Christian nation! We cannot afford to be a silent group any longer. 

The main number for Home Depot is 1-800-Home Depot. You can also go to their main site www.homedepot.com and send them an e-mail. I strongly recommend that you do both!! You can also try 1-800-553-3199. By the way, Home Depot is another one of those businesses that requires you to press 1 in order to proceed in English!

In response to a recent article posted by World Net Daily: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=108653

I implore you to remember. Remember that as parents and guardians, you have a choice. You can choose freedom or indoctrination and manipulation. Remember that parents are responsible to watch and be wary of what their children are subjected to. I wouldn’t subject my children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or kids of my friends to this man’s words any more than I would to pornography or a Muslim hate speech.

September 8, 2009 is a day in which ALL parents/guardians should exercise their freedom by keeping their children at home. Come on. We keep the children at home so that teachers can mentally regroup or so that we can honor the veterans who fought for our country. Surely this date is just as deserving. Make this date a true a FREEDOM DAY! Show Washington, D.C. that you will NOT allow them to raise your children. That you don’t condone this man’s methods. That you don’t respect him as a guardian to the youth in your life. Show them that liars, thieves, and whoremongers do not merit the attention and focus of our children except in moments of self-defense. Show the powers that be that they exist solely to serve you, and not the other way around. Remind them who really rules this nation–We the People. Do not force your children to bow down to the self-anointed King Obama!

I’m not asking you to stand on the bridge at Lexington with a loaded gun. I’m not asking you to sacrifice the lives of your sons and daughters as they go off to fight in a war for freedom. I’m not asking you to sacrifice your uttermost farthing. I’m not asking you to attend a Tea Party or other rally. I’m begging you to do this one simple act so that you can clearly show your demand of freedom—freedom from governmental oppression. Freedom from forced indoctrination. Freedom to act and choose that which is good over that which is questionable!

Freedom-Print-C10086265If you can’t take this one simple stand on Sept. 8, 2009, then what can you really do? Then begs the question “do you deserve the freedom that’s provided to you every day?” What will your children have in 10 years from now?

Show your children that freedom isn’t a passive gift. Show them that it’s a gift from God, not from some man standing in front of a fancy seal and mocking the flag of our nation.  This is the SAME man who threatens to forcibly vaccinate your children, steal thousands of dollars from you to give to criminal CEO heads, lies to you about his health care plan, lies to you about what the real state of inflation and the Consumer Price Index really is, and disrespects your religious beliefs by claiming that they don’t exist or that they are akin to those of right wing extremists. Is this a man you want your children to listen to? Frankly, you would truly educate your children more if you had them listen with you to a tirade by Hitler, Mussolini, Charles Manson, or Karl Marx.

This past 4th of July weekend, thousands of individuals got together for Tea Parties all over the United States for many purposes.  One of which was to send politicians a clear message of how they truly felt about what is going on in D.C.  Unfortunately, it’s obvious that some politicians are clueless even when the message is staring them straight on.  Enter stage left, Cherilyn Eagar who’s running against Bob Bennett for a Utah Senate seat.  On Independence Day she chose to “honor” the wishes of her desired constituents, not by rallying for independence, but simply by doing more of the same ole game–politicking.

At an Independence Day event in Orem, even after being asked by an event official not to desecrate the sanctity of a true Independence Day celebration with her postcards and politicking, she refused to stop.

Being partially in charge of security detail for the event, it was my job to ensure that presently elected officials or “wannabes” were mindful that we had promised all who attended that they would experience a NON-campaigning event.  Just as there is a time and place for bowling, so is there a time and place for campaigning.  The Orem Patriot Day 4th of July Tea Party was not one of those times.  This event was solely for the purpose to truly celebrate our Independence Day.  On the 4th of July, at Lakeridge Jr. High, Cherilyn Eagar chose to disrespect “We the People” by ignoring repeated requests to refrain from politicking/campaigning.  Even after a polite request was issued to her, she refused to stop.  Apparently, her objective of campaigning was much more important than the wishes of “We the People” who desired to take a break from having campaign promises stuffed down our throats and instead to let our politicians know what it is we wanted.

Swooping in on her broom with a member of her minion in tow, Cherilyn began stepping in front of those who were viewing the speakers and entertainment and passing out her paraphernalia.  With the assurances that this event was a “politician-free zone” many attendees were caught off guard and innocently accepted her wares.  Fortunately, I was one of the first to be given her clutter.  When I noticed what it was that she was handing out and why she was there, I made it known to “Igor” that this was promoted as a non-campaigning event and that we would prefer that she not dispense her information at this time.  Igor attempted to get such a message through to Cherilyn, but she refused to take heed.  Apparently she felt that she knew better what this group needed.  Sound familiar?  Instead, she icily informed me that this was a “public” place and that we had elected officials present.

Yes, Ms. Eagar.  The Lakeridge Jr. High did offer their property for the purpose of our event.  And yes, Madame, there were public officials present.  However, some of these publicly elected officials were INVITED to speak with the strict understanding that NO campaigning would take place.  Unlike Ms. Eager, Representative Brad Daw and Utah Attorney General, Mark Shurtleff honored such a request by their constituents.  They weren’t politicians that day, unlike yourself.  They were Americans rallying for freedom.  They understood perfectly the real purpose of that day.

Unfortunately Ms. Eagar showed her true patriotic colors that day and was narrowly focused on her own private objective.  As such she missed the desires of We the People that day.  Instead she depicted the epitome of what’s wrong with America—politicians more concerned about their own multi-trillion dollar objectives.  Of all days, Ms. Eagar proved this most poignantly on the 4th of July.  After a short while of being rebuffed by other citizens in the group, Ms. Eagar approached me and informed me she “had to go to other events.”  She said to me—and YES, I do quote—“You understand how the game is played.”  Yes, Madame, I do understand how the game is played.  And it’s exactly your kind of game that infuriates me.

Eager specifically talks in her campaign agenda about her desire for “new blood” in Washington, D.C.  Unfortunately, she showed this past Saturday that the colors of her blood are hued with a self-serving agenda, not a blood of sacrifice for freedom of “We the People.”  And by the way, Ms. Eagar, my freedom is NOT a game.  I do not take it lightly.  Nor do I take your attempt to irreverently tread on it that day lightly either.  In my opinion, due to the freedoms that our independence ensures, it’s the most important religious holiday in my book.  This past 4th of July gave those of us who are serious about our Freedom and Liberty an opportunity to gather and to strengthen our love and loyalty for this blessed nation.  You may have just as well come barging into the middle of a Sunday church service and started passing out your empty promises as to have interrupted a true celebration of freedom and independence that day.  Let the record show your true intentions towards the people of my Utah.  Please exit stage right.

swine-flu-universal-health-care

 

It’s an enormous blessing that Obama’s health care plan has not been put into play here as of yet.  In Mexico, where the majority of the Swine flu cases in the world have been located, (over 2,400 at last count) the woman who may have been one of the key first cases to contract the deadly virus was unable to obtain appropriate health care.  She saw several doctors, prior to getting any treatment and being properly diagnosed.  

 

If you aren’t aware, Mexico has what they call a “universal healthcare” program for those who are employed full time.  Mexico has a shortage of doctors for their plan, and yet it was put into play in 2003 with full knowledge of such a shortage and no plans to resolve the shortage.  Hmmm.  The U.S. does not have a sufficient number of doctors to handle a “universal” plan either, yet Obama and his puppeteers push for it nonetheless.  In fact, Obama has gone so far as to use this potential epidemic as a propelling force to move his universal health plan through Congress at lightening speed.  Of course!  That fits this administrations motto of “never let a good crisis go to waste.”  Good grief!

In view of Obama’s pick for U.S. Regulatory Czar, I have truly been converted today to the reality of aliens from outer space.  I say this because I have no earthly idea where a person would come up with such alien statements and beliefs as this person does.  Because the Sunstein Doctrine is so completely foreign to the substance and culture of this nation, it clearly demonstrates proof that Obama is pursuing his own agenda and not that of the American people.  I am 100% certain that this guy’s beliefs are indeed foreign.

 

cass-sunsteinIntroducing Cass Sunstein, the nominee to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.  This name accompanied by his bloodcurdling doctrine should cause you to shudder.  The fact that he would rape and pillage the first five Constitutional Amendments is only the tip of the iceberg.  Read on to see this freak of nature at his best.

 

In 2007, during a speech given at Harvard, Sunstein proposed that hunting be banned throughout the United States.  Ok, I can try to give him credit for wanting to save the lives of the hunting partners of Dick Cheney, but unfortunately his mutant beliefs only get more far fetched from here.

 

He believes that the internet is “anti-Democratic” because users can filter out any objectionable material.  As such he believes that the required use of technology by all citizens is necessary to ensure that a site contains “fair and balanced” information and that such a requirement should be put into play as soon as possible.  Does this mean that every site that communicates sound Christian values should also be required to communicate the thoughts and opinions of Satanic cults?  Does this mean if a site displays a picture of a virtuous woman that that same site must give the viewer access to porn as well?  And yes, Sunstein has gone so far as to declare that non-profit groups should be required to publish counter positions to theirs on their own websites.  That’s right.  If Mother Teresa had a web site, she would be required to provide information on Hitler as well.

 

He also believes that we should be required to use software which would  prevent anyone from sending an e-mail in which the SOFTWARE determines holds “uncivil” comments.  Awww.  Ain’t that cute?  These poor little defenseless politicians must have had their feelings hurt by all that was said during the Tea Parties.  They need a software program to protect them from hearing any dissenting opinions.  He proposes that this software double-ask the sender if they really want to send an “uncivil” e-mail message.  And if they do, then the e-mail must be filed away for 24 hours for a mandatory cooling off period.  Oh I get it.  The First Amendment gives free speech, but only if it’s not offensive to anyone.  Right.

 

radicals-in-robesIn his book “Radical to Robes” Sunstein writes that he believes that all gun control legislation is constitutionally congruent.  He believes that the U.S. Supreme court “got it wrong” in determining that the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms applies to individuals.

 

Ok, here’s a real loony one.  In his 2004 book entitled “Animal Rights” he wrote that he believed that “Animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives …”  Holy cow!  (pun intended)  I’m all about protecting animals, but providing them with a public defender at the expense of tax dollars is laughable!  If you hurt my dogs, I will indeed defend them, but where will it stop?  We already have an over burgeoning court system.  Criminals get off for murder of a human being?  What additional justice are we to expect when a person sends an uncivil e-mail to Mickey Mouse?  Are the lawyers not making enough money?  Do they need to start chasing Fido rather than ambulances?  Where does the U.S. Constitution stand on giving animals the same rights as humans?  Oh yeah.  It doesn’t.  And besides, how can we expect to preserve and protect the Constitutional rights of animals when we are proving ourselves incapable or unwilling to preserve and protect the rights of legal, law-abiding American citizens?  If you give animals constitutional rights, then you must give them consequences as well.  Will we expect law enforcement to release Shack, the vicious Pit Bull because he wasn’t read his Miranda Rights?

 

To me, here is the most horrific aspect of all of this.  Read what Obama thinks of this individual, specifically in relation to his ability to uphold the Constitutional rights and freedoms of our citizens: “As one of America’s leading constitutional scholars, Cass Sunstein has distinguished himself in a range of fields, including administrative law and policy, environmental law, and behavioral economics,” said Obama at his nomination of his regulatory czar.  “He is uniquely qualified to lead my administration’s regulatory reform agenda at this crucial stage in our history. Cass is not only a valued adviser, he is a dear friend and I am proud to have him on my team.”  I have no doubt that he is a dear friend of Obama’s based on this information.  However, it’s clear that Sunstein knows about as much about the constitution as Anderson Cooper and Janeane Garofalo know about civility.

 

too-many-choicesTo completely prove my case of this alien-born, anti-Christ, Sunstein states “limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government.”  Yup.  We’re just dumb human beings incapable of making the “right” choice if we are presented with so many choices.  You’re right Sunstein.  Americans simply have too many choices, and as such we’re certainly making the wrong decisions.  But I ask you, why stop at the internet, Sunstein?  Why not reel in those villainous makers of feminine products as well?  Slim, mini, super, extra super, pink, blue, white, mega, etc.  How is a sane person to choose?  I find the vast amount of tampons for women completely overwhelming and sending my poor husband out to retrieve the proper box could result in a 3rd World War.  I’m sure limiting our choices between good, bad, evil, and truly in our best interests was exactly what the Founding Father feared in declaring ultimate freedom from an oppressed government.  Too bad they didn’t declare freedom from beings from Mars as well.  I’d feel a lot safer now.

 

I think the best science fiction writers of our time will find merit in the Sunstein Doctrine. After all, it will provide great fodder for their story lines.  What’s the saying?  “Truth is stranger than fiction.”  We might as well prepare ourselves for the same kind of alien invasion represented in the Will Smith movie, “Independence Day”, if we are to tolerate a man in such a controlling a position as this.

hillary-clintonAfter hearing enough of the inflated and downright false statistics of the guns in Mexico being provided by the U.S., I’ve decided to get right down to the facts.  First of all, when you hear these statistics, consider the source.  I personally believe that anything that comes out of the mouth of Hilary Clinton or Dianne Fienstein—especially when it has to do with guns or self-defense–to be dramatically skewed. 

 

Of all the guns in Mexico, simply because there are some U.S. guns, does not mean they have all come from legal channels in the U.S.  Gun smuggling goes both ways.  In the event that the U.S. government issues guns to the Mexican Military in an effort to fight whatever wars rage in their land, it’s important to note that such guns would come with a caveat to be used for such purpose.  The fact that they are still ending up in the hands of drug-runners and immigrant criminals is not a reflection on the U.S. government, rather an expose on the corruption of government officials in the U.S.  In addition, according to Mexican Congressman, Robert Badilla, over 150,000 Mexican military members have abandoned their military duty and have taken their guns with them.

 

truth-guns-mexicoThe saying has been spread about by truly ignorant politicians and their loyal subjects (a.k.a. the mainstream media) that 90% of the guns in Mexico came from the U.S.  This is yet one more example of a lazy, knee-jerk media we have reporting our news to us today.  In fact, 83% of the guns in Mexico do not even have serial numbers or can even be traced via U.S. technology as they come from Asia, Israel, South Korea, China, Spain and Columbia.  However, of the guns that have been found WITH serial numbers, 90% OF THOSE GUNS have come from the U.S.  This fact means that only 17% of the guns found at crime scenes in Mexico have come from the U.S.!  And that my friends, is how such a ridiculous rumor has been perpetuated.

“A rose by any other name is still a rose.”  Isn’t it interesting how our government has camouflaged its selected names of programs and legislation in order to falsely influence the American people as to what these issues really are?  You’ve heard of oxy-morons such as “military intelligence” in jest, I’m sure.  But when it comes to many of the name games our government plays, there’s nothing funny about it. 

1)    National Security Letters: The name implies that these are letters which provide or promote security to our nation, when in fact they are used abusively by the FBI, CIA, DOD, and NSA to as a weapon against law-abiding citizens.  Additionally there is no limit to the amount or type of information which can be seized via an NSL.  And they are now to be complied with without exception.  Today, in order for any federal agent (FBI, DOD, or CIA) to write an NSL, they must only comply with the requirement that they claim—not provide any evidence thereof—that the desired records may be related to an ongoing terrorism investigation or intelligence activities.  These warrants require the production of “any tangible things” such as books, records, documents, lists, etc, without any consideration given to any reasonable time frames or costs to produce such information.  Oh, and by the way, there is NO judicial oversight on the use of these, not even from Congress.  As if that’s not enough, whoever receives such a “letter” is legally gagged from telling anyone about them, even if it’s your own attorney who receives it.  The attorney can’t even tell YOU that he’s about to turn over all of your files to the FBI.  Now how’s that for national security?

2)   Federal Reserve:  Contrary to what their own website states, as well as that of other government agencies, there is nothing “federal” about the Federal Reserve.  They are not a part of the US Government.  In fact, in an interview with Alan Greenspan, when asked, “What should be the proper relationship between the chairman of the Federal and the President of the United States?” Greenspan responded, “Well, first of all the Federal Reserve is an independent agency.  And that means basically there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take, so long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don’t frankly matter.”  While the Federal Reserve behaves as a 4th branch of our government, there is no governing authority over them other than for Congress to rule that we will no longer do business with them.  Good luck with that, right?  In addition, there is no longer any “reserves” backing the currency issued by the Federal Reserve.  We don’t even require them to issue a report that tells us how much currency is in circulation so that we can be sure our money still holds its value.  Ultimately, the Federal Reserve name is just as contrived to deceive as was a local computer company in my neck of the woods called “Totally Awesome Computers” (It went bankrupt).

3)   Carbon Credits: Wow. This name sounds like the U.S. taxpayers might actually get a credit for something, right?  Wrong.  These two words combine to become the most threatening level of taxation that our nation has ever seen.  As a result of the passage of a “Carbon Credits” program, countless energy companies will be required to pay for the air they use.  As a result, they will of course pass these fees on to their consumers.  Electricity, gasoline, natural gas, kerosene, coal, and even solar energy just became significantly more expensive.  As the result of this “credit” every American household can expect an average of a $3,000 INCREASE to their electric bill every year.  That’s just ONE source of energy you use.  If I continue to tell you about all of the other ramifications, I’m afraid that there will be a run on the pharmacies for anti-depressants nationwide.

4)   The G.I.V.E. Act: Once again, a very deceptive name.  The only thing this act gives is unconstitutional orders.  While admittedly it’s been scaled down a bit from its first version as HR 1388, (and changed HR and Senate numbers multiple times) it’s still ridiculously named.  The original proposal under HR 1388 would REQUIRE citizens of America in a wide range of ages to provide a mandatory period of “service” to their communities in whatever fashion the government deemed necessary.  In addition to that, the House of Representatives even added an amendment that stated that while individuals were in the process of providing this “voluntary” service, they were prohibited from engaging in numerous acts of free speech.  Yup. That’s a GIVE act, alright.  Giving American citizens the ole heave ho, at least.

5)   The Patriot Act: This is the mother of all misnamed issues.  I’m convinced that our Founding Fathers and all those who sided with them during the Revolutionary War feel that their true title of “Patriot” has been mercilessly molested.  There is nothing Patriot or patriotic about this act.  It consistently tramples on countless constitutional amendments in the name of protecting our nation from terrorism.  Now we are instructed to not even use the word “terrorist” or “enemy combatants” but we’re still stuck with this offensive violation of our rights to free speech.  The not-so-Patriot Act has Congress giving his agents permission to listen to our phone calls, read our e-mails, and obtain unlimited amount of personal information about us.  The “war on terror,” which gave birth to this heinous beast, has quickly disguised itself as an enemy intrusion on American’s privacy, freedom of movement and thought, individuality and civil liberties.  Does that mean that the terrorists have essentially won now?

Ultimately the lesson we all need to learn here is that we cannot afford to be mindless sheep armed with good hearts.  We must be more proactive in discovering and educating ourselves with the abundance of truthful information that is available to us.  Getting our misinformation from the mass media will be no excuse when we appear before our Creator and attempt to explain to Him how we let something so valuable as freedom disintegrate from our nation.  Each and every one of us is endowed with the freedom to choose, thus God’s perfect law will require that each and every one of us be held responsible for what we did with those choices.  I believe that an understanding of this responsibility is why our Founding Fathers sacrificed all that they had to give us the rights to freely choose freedom.  Indeed, when we’re before the Creator of Truth, we surely won’t be able to play the politicking finger pointing game.  The blame will be ours regardless of how the program was masqueraded.

aig-ceo-signs-hearing

 

I understand that when I write this it will be evident that I’m clearly not an ordinary American.  And I’m completely OK with that.  Here goes… I don’t believe that the AIG CEO should have been drawn in front of the cameras and skewered by Congressmen.  I don’t believe that AIG honoring contracts to pay $165 million in bonuses is a heinous act.  In fact, I feel that this whole parade of finger pointing at AIG is simply an effort to take the focus off of who is truly at fault in the first place.  This whole debacle is merely the result of a government gone bad—publicly—making even more horrible mistakes as they try to fix their egregious errors, and getting caught with the consequences. 

 

aig-buildingAIG is completely responsible for the debacle they created in the first place.  Clearly they got carried away with their own sense of power and influence and wrote too many checks they could not cover.  And they talked a good talk to many other key financial institutions worldwide to get them to play in their power game as well.  So what did that get us?  Financial ruin.  Now let’s look at this for a moment…  These people are supposedly uber-giants of expertise in financial management and yet they could not manage their own house!  They got completely drunk with their power and just like an inebriated lug of a giant they lost their reasoning and functionality abilities and stumbled—hard!  OK.  So we’ve got a giant who’s in a drunken stupor about to self-destruct and take down questionably innocent bystanders in his wake.  What do we do?  Well, yeah, we give the alcoholic lush MORE power.  No, we don’t take his license or privilege away.  No, we don’t put him into any kind of treatment.  Instead, we find him an even better “dealer” to work with (a.k.a. the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury) who can simply bail them out.  We give him an even more audacious privilege of using the tax payer dollars and that of several generations to come to “get him back on his feet.”  And then when he functions the same way he did previously, and even has the audacity to honor contracts, we react to publicly condemn him?  Condemn the giant so that nobody is wise to the “dealer” who feeds and encourages his misbehavior.  Now that’s quite the deception isn’t it?  (Side bar: It’s interesting to note that Congress doesn’t really care about the legality of contracts.  They don’t even enforce the most significant contract we Americans have to protect us, that of the U.S. Constitution.)

 

Here’s the perfect part of this deception, folks.  If (and I’m SOOO inclined to say “when”) AIG can’t pay us all back, what happens to them?  If they go bankrupt, what recourse do we, the tax payers who’ve been yoked with indentured servitude in order to lift this giant’s sorry caboose back up, get back?  What’s our collateral on this loan we’ve been forced to issue at the risk of death, jail time, or social and emotional ruin?  Not one blasted thing!  Nothing.  We probably won’t even get a sincere apology from a public official when it does go belly up.  Adding insult to injury is the fact that the primary people making these decisions are themselves so completely disconnected from the real picture due to their own wanton consumption habits.  They are endowed with their salary for the rest of their life, benefit from a royal health plan, and yet some even fail to pay their own taxes.  

 

aig-moneyAIG clearly has their own problems.  But just as I shake my head in disbelief when women refuse to leave their abusive husbands, I just can’t figure out what kind of maniacal plan the Secretary of Treasury and the Federal Reserve had in mind on this one.  Who gave them the authority to determine that one business gets bailed out above another?  That one business is any more important to our social fabric than another?  That the consequences called Real Life don’t apply to these companies?  Even worse, IF you’re going to perform such an unprecedented act, aren’t you at least willing to go through the homework of everything that act entails, i.e. reading all of the contracts that are presently in place, properly appraising just how much their other assets really are worth, etc?!  Gentlemen, don’t approve the act of an AIG bailout 100% and then get mad when something happens that you didn’t know about – i.e.: the AIG bonuses.  You had every opportunity to know everything there was to know.  It’s called a test.  A real life test.  You know, the kind of real life testing that all of your schooling and life experiences are supposed to prepare you for so that you’re actually competent enough to take the job that the American people pay you to do!  And clearly you screwed up!  It’s your own freaking fault that you didn’t know about it!  Just as it’s your own freaking fault that you overpaid for assets in the tens of billions of dollars!  So let’s be perfectly clear about this… whoever closed the bail out deal with AIG in the first place is 100% responsible and should be FIRED and perhaps even have charges filed for willful negligence at best, or treasonous acts at worst. 

 

madoff1How dare our government condemn Madoff when they are doing the EXACT same thing with all of our money?  And lest anyone forget, yes – it’s OUR money, not the government’s.  We earn it while we work on the frontlines while we simultaneously are shown how little responsibility and accountability means to those who are in power.  And yet we still provide our tax dollars for the purposes of paying for a government to protect our freedoms.

 

The U.S. Government is mismanaging funds.

 

They are playing a shell game. 

 

The Federal Reserve just keeps printing money and yet REFUSES to provide our country with an accounting of just how much money (via the M3 report) they are printing, thus we are unable to define for ourselves what our currency is really worth.  How in the world is that any different than Madoff having his CPA send out false solubility reports to his investors?!

 

direct-unapportioned-taxOh, and one last point I’d like to make here.  So, you have a government who has totally screwed up publicly enough that even the mainstream media can’t ignore it, and so what do the do to truly fix the problem?  They paint every recipient of that $165 million bonus share as some kind of a criminal—even a terrorist if you will—against the sovereignty of this American people.  And to show you just how big and powerful they are, they actually draft a bill which would directly tax all of these financial terrorists with a 90% tax!  Using taxes as a weapon, you say?  How can they do that?  They can’t.  It’s called a direct unapportioned tax, and it’s 100% illegal and completely unconstitutional, for the very same reasons why your present federal income tax is illegal.  You don’t believe that our wonderful U.S. government would commit such an illegal act?  Really?  You just watched them try to do it right in front of your eyes against the AIG bonus recipients! 

 

Of course the government did nothing to preemptively thwart the payment of the bonuses to AIG executives.  That’s because, very much like the ridiculous stimulus bill, they didn’t even bother to comprehend the entire picture of their actions.  This is the same government who overpaid by over $70 billion dollars for the assets it purchased from the companies it bailed out!  Whether or not there was a senator who acknowledged and attempted to keep the bonuses in the contract is beside the point.

 

I say kudos to the AIG Executive who resigned in the New York Times today!  And I don’t care whether or not he does donate any of his money to charity.  Legally, contractually, it’s his money.  The U.S. Government simply bought into a Lion’s Zoo and is now whining when they got bit!  And now they are claiming foul because many of the vital AIG personnel refuse to work under such circumstances.  aig-ceoCan you blame them?  Sure you can’t relate to such a huge bonus in your own life.  I get that.  But it’s what the guy signed on for.  It was part of the reason why he left his previous job to take a position with AIG 11 years ago.  And now he’s being asked to work for free for an undetermined period of time while AIG fixes all of their screw ups and be persecuted by nearly an entire country in the meantime.  Does that sound like a job you’d want to keep?  Heck, when I heard during the live Congressional questioning that the CEO was working for $1 and taking all of the crap from Congress, I would have quit on the spot and told Congress that they can fix their own mess and not use me as a whipping boy.

 

Here’s some wisdom my mother taught me.  “Be very aware of what people say about other people, because they are likely to be saying the same thing about you when you’re not around.”  You’ve seen what the U.S. Government is willing to do when we are looking.  Now, get a clue as to what they are doing when we’re not watching!

barack-obama

I have been biting my tongue on this topic for a long time now, not wanting to appear like I’m not giving him a chance. But today was the last straw.

Barack Obama has absolutely no Presidential class or dignity.

I was shocked when he was making his “presidential” speech, after he’d already won the election, and saw fit to take pot shots at President Bush. I know I was raised by good parents, but I would think that any parent who’s raising a future president of the United States would raise them with an awareness of dignity and civility. I expect to hear that kind of anti-Bush rhetoric during the politicking leading up to the election, but not afterwards, and frankly I don’t think it’s been done in recent history either. Why? Because it lacks class! It’s petty. This was supposed to be his first day of presidential regality and he sees fit to use it to promote his “nanny nanny noo noo” nonsense against President Bush.

Adding insult to injury, he crippled Washington D.C. financially by bankrupting them with the most lavish inaugural address in history, outspending Bush by over 4 to 1!

Our country is in MOURNING. Millions have lost their retirement, their jobs, their hope for a future, and he decides that elaborate excess is in the country’s best interest? During such an economic crisis, there are several U.S. Presidents that certainly would have firmly believed this to be undignified (Wilson, Roosevelt, Washington, Adams, etc.)

BushSince Obama has taken the reins of the Presidency, he continues to shift blame to what is going on in our nation to the previous President and the Republican party. Mr. President, be a man, not a martyr! Own up and fix it if you think it’s so bad! Don’t misunderstand. I’m not happy with how Bush performed his duties. And I feel that my convictions and beliefs have been betrayed in many aspects by the Republicans. However, Obama cannot continue to be believable in any way shape or form if he intends to put the blame of our country’s woes on the backs of any particular party or president.  After all, Obama has stains on his hands for the mortgage mess we’re in as he was a part of insisting that government made economically questionable home loans. Obama screws up while taking the Oath of Office and sees fit to blame it on a Supreme Court justice? This is not behavior fitting of the president of our nation. Surely his mother raised him better than that! (How about the simple rule of “respect your elders?”)

How in the world does Obama think he’s promoting bi-partisanship when every time he speaks he sees fit to remind the American people that either a) They made a mistake in electing Bush in the first place (ouch…salt in the wound) or b) Our votes didn’t matter over the last 8 years because Obama is going to undo everything Bush ever did, or c) those who still do promote and believe in the Republican way of life are conquered human beings.

stem-cell-research-ny-timesHe continues to forget that the voters of this nation, to whom he is addressing, put Bush in office for two consecutive terms! And yet he sees fit to degrade that administration at every turn and to nullify ANYTHING that that administration did previously that Obama and the Democratic Party disagrees with. What good is the right to vote if your votes can merely be negated the next time someone comes along who doesn’t agree with them? To me that’s not a republic, that’s a monarchy. That kind of behavior is not indicative of a president of a free country, it’s indicative of a tyrant. And how does this behavior reinforce in any way his so-called goals of bi-partisan cooperation. I’m starting to wonder seriously if we haven’t just been taken over by a King and his “King’s men.” In light of Obama’s complete disregard for the will of this nation’s people, he’s allowed for federal monies to be spent on stem cell research. Many people supported President Bush’s actions on stem-cell research. I, for one, certainly did, out of my devotion to the freedoms of the Constitution and my firmly held religious beliefs. It is immoral to take of the wealth from one people to give to another. And that’s exactly what he’s doing with this allocation. It is in violation of the religious beliefs of millions of Americans in our country as well. This isn’t even HIS money to allocate to such a cause. It is for the function of the government whose primary purpose is to protect the rights and freedoms of the people of this nation! Perhaps if we weren’t taxed so high, then private enterprise would still have money to fund such research themselves and not burden the American taxpayer with a process so repugnant to the senses of many.

I wonder how many other presidential policies he will attempt to reverse? Perhaps he’d like to teach George Washington a thing or two and decide to reverse his policy on the right to keep and bear arms… oh wait, Obama’s already trying to do that.

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”
— Thomas Jefferson, 1 Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good”
— George Washington

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
— Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188

sedition-actOr perhaps he’d like to reinstitute the Sedition Act which Thomas Jefferson specifically abolished. Perhaps he’d like to reinstate the errors of other presidents while he’s at it such as the internment camps which violated the rights of hundreds of thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Perhaps he’d like to get rid of the Declaration of Independence altogether so as not to be inconvenience with any conflict of conscience.

I don’t believe that the majority of our government-elected officials are serving the people any longer. They are serving themselves to get power and gain, and we apathetic sheep are allowing it. While Obama’s not even able to keep his campaign promises for an entire week, he’s sabotaging more of our country’s freedoms. Why doesn’t he show some dignity and put to rest the accusations of his heritage, to prove once and for all that he is legally able to be elected President of our nation instead of sending his dogs to the courthouse to use every convoluted and perverted law of privacy to protect that information from ever being released? If he has nothing to hide then why won’t he show this information instead of bullying his citizens in court, now at the cost to American taxpayers?

declaration-of-independence-2Here’s a warning “Mr. President.” If you are not able to even create a façade of class and decorum when you are in front of the cameras for all the world to see, then I suspect you are doing much worse behind our backs. Remember, the Declaration of Independence reads “…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” I, for one, will not consent or stand idly by while you insult this great nation with your representation of us, nor will I allow you to strip us of any more of our liberties. You are truly the last straw—of the indignity of liberties lost. I will use all of my influence to right the real wrongs of our past leaders.

I suppose that if nothing else, I appreciate you for waking me up from my nap of stupor. Had it not been for your blatant and bold uncivilized behavior, I might still be sleeping.
