TOO BIG TO FAIL! – April 30, 2009

Posted on April 30, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“Yeah! We did it.”

We first heard the term, “too big to fail”, last fall when then Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson, told Pres. Bush that the U.S. government had to “bail out” the banking industry. The public was told that we had to act immediately or the entire banking industry would fail and severely harm the American economy and that would doom the world’s economy.

Since then, we’ve been told repeatedly that big insurance companies such as AIG, big auto makers like GM, Chrysler and Ford, investment banks like Bear Stearns, and who knows what industry is next, IS TOO BIG TO FAIL. U.S. taxpayers have been literally “held up” and robbed of their life’s income to pay the price of saving all of these “too big to fail” companies who practiced unsustainable business tactics. Their unsound lending and pyramid schemes can’t come tumbling down because they will take the whole country down with them.

Now that we’ve become accustomed to the “too big to fail” excuse and we’re on the hook for billions of dollars without our consent, the new mantra is about other countries’ financial failings and their effect on the global financial community. During the G20 Summit, the world’s leaders gathered to discuss how badly they’ve destroyed their countries’ economies and how they can get taxpayers to pony up for that tab, too. We can’t escape it. The global economy is – yep, you guessed it – TOO BIG TO FAIL!!!

From now through infinity, taxpayers will be held hostage by the threat,” TOO BIG TO FAIL.” I’m sick of it already. I also see right through it. If you don’t like this new situation we have all been thrown into, then give this a lot of thought. United Nations treaties signed by American politicians binding U.S. taxpayers to more and more financial responsibilities around the globe. More debt to carry on the backs of every American, including generations not even born yet. They won’t be happy with us when they are old enough to learn what we did to them. Well, not us taxpayers – our elected representatives who didn’t really represent us.

The U.S. dollar is being devalued as fast as Pres. Obama can devalue it. Our Treasury Department is printing money backed by nothing every day. Each new dollar makes the pre-existing dollars worth less. Soon, they will be nearly worthless. The Chinese are proffering the idea of using a different currency around the world, instead of the dollar. A few other countries are agreeing with them. Oh yes, and Timothy Geithner, our Treasury Secretary, said he would be willing to consider that.

Why would our own government do this to America? It makes no sense. It’s a terrible thing to do to this country. Why would they do it to us?

It occurred to me that they are doing it on purpose and they have a reason. Perhaps globalization is the goal. Perhaps they couldn’t legislate a one world (global) currency until the dollar was worthless and Americans believed that the world (global) economy was going down in flames, taking us all down with it. Perhaps these “too big to fail” fear tactics were supposed to frighten Americans into accepting globalization of our economy, scrapping our dollar, our laws and our sovereignty. Think that’s too farfetched?

“In fact, the new international regulatory guidelines promoted by Germany and France and set out by the G-20 are broadly similar to proposals made last month by the Obama administration to dramatically tighten financial oversight within the United States. Those proposals include requiring hedge funds, private equity firms and other private investment funds to register with regulators, and giving the Treasury Department the power to seize and dismantle companies whose failure would pose a threat to the economy.” The L.A. Times, http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-g20-summit3-2009apr03,0,2…

The main agreement that came out of the G20 Economic Summit was that the Global Economy was TOO BIG TO FAIL.

TOO BIG TO FAIL – SOLUTION? GLOBAL GOVERNANCE – ONE WORLD ORDER – ONE WORLD CURRENCY – GLOBAL CURRENCY – NEW WORLD ORDER

BENEDICT SPECTER -April 28, 2009

Posted on April 28, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The Democrats must have made an offer Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania couldn’t refuse. We know they’ve been working tirelessly to get a filibuster-proof majority so they can ram through everything on their agenda without wasting time fighting Republican filibusters. Specter was probably easy pickins’ because he’s voted with them for years. No one is shocked at Specter’s move. Lots of Republicans have invited him to switch many times over the years. He’s served to defeat the Republican positions on issues too many times to count. Specter has watered-down and weakened his party shamefully, as if he was only there to infilitrate for Democrats.

“I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans.” Specter said. What took him so long? We’ve seen it for years!

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said, “Let’s be honest: Senator Specter didn’t leave the GOP based on principles of any kind. He left to further his personal political interests because he knew that he was going to lose a Republican primary due to his left-wing voting record. Republicans look forward to beating Senator Specter in 2010, assuming the Democrats don’t do it first.”

Specter had the unmitigated nerve to be honest and state that he “was not willing to have my 29-year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate.

What is he saying? Is he saying that he doesn’t want the Republican voters to decide whether or not he is a Senator in the next term – the voters of his party of 29 years? It sure sounds like that’s what he’s saying. He seems to be saying that HE IS GOING TO BE A SENATOR AND NO ONE IS GOING TO STOP HIM, NOT EVEN THE VOTERS OF HIS PARTY! GOOD GRIEF! THIS IS WHY IT MAY BE TIME FOR TERM LIMITS. THESE GUYS GET AN “ENTITLED TO OFFICE” MENTALITY AFTER A COUPLE OF TERMS. THE VOTERS’, WHOM THEY ARE ELECTED TO SERVE NO LONGER MATTER. IT BECOMES ALL ABOUT THE SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN – AND PRESIDENT.

A Quinnipiac University survey of registered Pennsylvania voters released last month showed Specter trailing the more conservative Toomey in a hypothetical primary matchup, 41 to 27 percent.

A separate Franklin & Marshall survey showed Specter leading Toomey 33 to 18 percent. Another 42 percent, however, were undecided.

Specter also said that President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would campaign for him as he runs for re-election — now on the Democratic ticket — in the 2010 race.

“You have my full support, and we’re thrilled to have you,” Obama told Specter. ” http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/04/28/specter.party.switch/

In contrast to Specter’s statement that Obama promised to campaign for him, Obama says that he didn’t promise Specter anything.

Since when does Obama fully support a Republican? NEVER. Specter was a Democrat runnng under the Republican banner. He got elected because he ran as a Republican. However, when it came time to vote, he voted with the opposition party. That’s not fair to his constituents who voted for him as a Republican. That’s bait and switch. He has come out now and made it official.

Specter stated that the Republican Party has gone too far to the right. Ridiculous. John McCain was the candidate for the last election. He’s not most Republicans’ idea of a conservative. He also joined the Democrats too often. The Democrats in power today are the most left-wing radicals ever in power in this country. It’s unlikely that Specter is fine with joining them and helping them push through their agenda without any opposition, if he was truly ever a Republican. It’s also unlikely that they would welcome him, if they didn’t expect him to vote with them and prevent a Republican filibuster.

“Last year, more than 200,000 Republicans in Pennsylvania changed their registration to become Democrats,” Specter said. Out of the large number of Pennsylvania Republicans, 200,000 is not a significant number. It can be explained by so-called moderates falling for the Obama celebrity fest that was going on at the time. The “switchers” were enamored by the love fest in the media and mesmorized by the razzle-dazzle of the Obama media blitz, the Greek columns, the Oprah effect, the Jesus Christ Superstar promotion that costs billions of dollars to sell to the public and lastly the “history being made” racial premise pushed so hard as absolutely necessary to achieve.

Then there are those Democrats who cross over and vote in the Republican primaries to select our candidate from the least conservative of the group, before the primaries reach the Red States.

Arlen B. (Benedict) Spe
cter is remembered for his vote against removing Bill Clinton who was impeached for lying under oath in a court of law he was sworn to uphold as President and Chief Executive Officer of the United States. The President, who was himself a lawyer, committed perjury.
Specter had such a stretch to protect this breach of the law, that he was forced to cite “Scottish law” as the basis for his decision to defend Clinton. There is no mention of Scotland or its laws in the U.S. Constitution which Specter swore to uphold while in office. That was ridiculous and shameful.

March 17, 2009, the honest Arlen B. (Benedict) Specter said the following when asked if he was considering a party switch:

“I am staying a Republican because I think I have an important role, a more important role, to play there. The United States very desperately needs a two-party system. That’s the basis of politics in America. I’m afraid we are becoming a one-party system, with Republicans becoming just a regional party with so little representation of the northeast or in the middle atlantic. I think as a governmental matter, it is very important to have a check and balance. That’s a very important principle in the operation of our government. In the constitution on Separation of powers.”

Wow, Sen. Arlen B. (Benedict) Specter! Do you really mean that? I guess not.

That was only one month ago! Can you believe anything this man says after that? Nope.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sG7YgaQazbc

Something no one is talking about is who was the Democrat that planned to run for senator in Pennsylvania, and may still be planning to do so? If OBama and Reid campaign for the old Republican, who are they abandoning in their own party? Why would Obama and Reid turn against a Pennsylvania Democrat candidate to support an old 79-year old Republican? There has to be a reason. Unless Specter has been misinformed about their support.

The bottom line is that the Republican party is better off without selfish members who will turn against their own constituents and party to stay in power and without unprincipled senators who will help the most radical left-wing politicians ruin this country.

Senator, Good bye and good riddance!

And Senator Specter, it’s going to be cold and lonely from now on. You have no place in either party. You just don’t realize it yet.

Does anyone remember “Jumping Jim” Jeffords? No. I didn’t think so. After the Democrats got what they wanted, they dumped him. They didn’t trust an opportunistic switcher, and neither does anyone else.

Air Force One Warming the Globe??? – April 28, 2009

Posted on April 27, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Today a 747 jet painted like Air Force One flew low over New York City, followed by a fighter jet – just to get some photos near the Statue of Liberty!

http://www.breitbart.tv/html/327763.html

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU5W3dKCQek

“John Leitner, a floor trader at the New York Mercantile Exchange Building, says workers received no official prior announcement about the exercise. He says everyone panicked when they saw the low-flying planes and began running out of the building around 10 a.m. Monday.
About 1,000 workers gathered along the Hudson River esplanade until a security officer with a bullhorn told them it was a planned exercise. ”
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/04/27/national/main4971177.shtml?tag=topH…

1. It scared New Yorkers into a panic and sent them running out of buildings and down the street. I heard they even panicked in tall buildings in New Jersey.

2. What did that cost? How much fuel did the two jets use? What a waste on the taxpayer’s dime! Are you being forced to budget and cut back? Washington apparently is not.

3. What was the carbon footprint of those two planes? Do you think they really believe in global warming in Washington? If they really did, they wouldn’t be flying these jets unnecessarily.

4. Couldn’t they just Photoshop the plane next to the Statue of Liberty? It would have been the responsible and efficient thing to do.

Folks, you’re being bilked, fleeced and taken to the cleaners! But what else is new?

Enhanced Interrogation – April 27, 2009

Posted on April 27, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The Democrats are all atwitter about enhanced interrogation, which they prefer to call “torture” for political advantage, knowing that there are people who haven’t done their homework on the topic and will, quite naturally be apalled. With all the discussion and arguing on television and on the floors of the House and Senate, one key factor is being ignored.

No matter what you call the technique used, it was always up to the terrorists/enemy combatants/detainees whether or not to be subjected to it and if subjected to it, for what duration. They could have given the information they had immediately and never been subjected to any techniques necessary to extract that information. If they tried to withhold what they knew and were subjected to enhanced interrogation, they could at any time tell what they were asked to tell and it would have stopped. They could have avoided it or halted it at any time by simply telling all when asked. There was no need to suffer at all. It was always entirely up to them.

There’s no need to feel sorry for these guys. They brought it upon themselves and prolonged it unnecessarily.

These terrorists would cut off an American’s head or blow up Americans and other nationalities without any hesitation. They would not stop and think about what kind of interrogation techniques we use before deciding whether or not to blow up Americans. These are not conventional soldiers who care one whit about international treaties or the Geneva Convention. They are not recruited by those who tell them that Americans torture prisoners. They are recruited by hate-mongers who use Islam, God and lies to plant and cultivate hatred in gullible, ill-informed people.

All of our elected officials are sworn to protect the people of America, not terrorists from foreign countries. If strong measures are required to save American lives, they come first.

Another consideration seldom discussed is that the techniques were not life-threatening, left no permanent effects, did not draw blood, inflicted no physical pain, and a doctor was present. They were made to fear something bad, but didn’t experience what they feared. This was a case of mind-games causing fear, enough fear to make them talk. Once the interrogation was over, they were fine.

I Truly Fear For My Country – April 25, 2009

Posted on April 24, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

JANET NAPOLITANO
Homeland Security Secretary

For the first time in my life, I truly fear for my country. America is under siege by her own sons and daughters and a bunch of outsiders, the United Nations, illegal aliens, foreign terrorists and dictators and the swine flu.

There is so much bad news today that I’ll simply refer you to www.drudgereport.com. Read the articles and remember – that’s only a fraction of the bad news.

Educate yourself about the scandals of Sen. Diane Feinstien of California, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chris Dodd, Sen. Barney Frank, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (who should be removed from office immediately), Congressman John Murtha, just for a start. All Democrats and all involved in scandalous behavior. Notice I didn’t even list Obama. He’s the worst of all.

Remember when Pres. Clinton appointed Jocelyn Elders as Surgeon General? That turned out to be a huge embarassment for him and the country. He finally had to remove her. Obama’s in the same position with Janet Napolitano. She’s a huge embarrassment to the country and surely to Obama. Her lack of key knowledge that is vital to the performance of her job is absolutely stunning! Where’s the press? They were making hay about Gov. Sarah Palin’s answers to Katie Couric. Where are they regarding Napolitano’s ignorance on important issues under her scope of responsibility?

The Tea Party crowd had better plan their next event and expand their concern to include a heavily corrupt government and how they plan to stop it and clean House.

Please get involved. It’s going to take everyone of us.

Bush Hatred Driving Obama – April 24, 2009

Posted on April 24, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The left’s hatred for Pres. George W. Bush is reaching it’s peak with Obama’s decisions to release so-called “torture” documents and photos of prisoners who were, in the left’s opinion, “tortured” AND THE MOVE TO PROSECUTE PEOPLE IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION.

This will make our military more of a target, inflame our enemies more than ever and handicap every administration in the future. Everyone will be afraid to do their jobs for fear of being prosecuted by the next administration.

Political opposition is normal and can be healthy. We’re a three party nation – Democrats, Republicans and the People. But Obama, Soros, MoveOn.org, the Democrats and the mainstream media are licking their chops, salivating, over the prospect of hanging Pres. Bush and his cabinet members. They’re using their view of torture as a vehicle. And, they’ve got other contrived vehicles lined up to guarantee their gratification. It’s purely vindictiveness.

I envision a vampire with blood dripping from his fangs. You can easily see that they’re out for blood. Obama has gone against all the CIA directors, including his own. He’s been advised not to do this because of the danger that will result. He has steadfastly refused to listen to anyone’s advice. Why is that? Who’s pressuring him or buying his actions? Who is he beholden to, if anyone? Perhaps this is the manifestation of Obama’s own desire to destroy the Bush administration.

Whatever the motive, this is shameful. Obama is proving to be the most destructive president we’ve ever had, except Pres. Abraham Lincoln who presided over the Civil War. Obama seems determined to tear this country apart and tear down our way of life. He’s taking our dollar, our economy, our quality of life, our justice system and our civility down to the ground. His team is attacking our military, while he’s putting them in greater danger. He’s gone to summits in other countries pacifying enemies of freedom and justice, apologizing for America, the most generous nation on earth, and offending our allies.

The crazy and revealing element is that the left keeps arguing that we must not torture or use harsh interrogation tactics because it will endanger our military and inflame our enemies. Hmmm. Isn’t that exactly the same result of Obama’s actions to release memos and photos that were top secret for a reason?

The people of America need to swamp the White House directly with phone calls objecting to Obama’s “torture” related releases AND OBJECTING VEHEMENTLY TO THE PROSECUTION OF ANYONE IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. THEY WERE DOING THEIR BEST TO PROTECT ALL OF US – INCLUDING THE OBAMANATION WE HAVE IN OFFICE NOW.
