Unless you watch CSPAN, or have nothing else to do but sit on your computer, you probably missed Rand Paul’s speech at CPAC. Rand of course is right on the fact that Obama has taken dictatorial powers…but…where was Chris Christie on this? His message was “If you don’t win elections it don’t matter” and the Rino’s own the Republican party, and they have no interest in liberty.
Until there are more Rand Paul’s and Ted Cruz’s and Mike Lee’s in the Congress, the fight will always go to the entrenched power, unless we wake up.
God Bless Rand Paul. God damn all those who don’t fight for our rights, and that’s the majority of Congress.
I don’t know how else to say it.
As I watch St. Louis become Detroit, and see Americans being attacked by the ‘black’ man in the White House, who is now on his THIRD vacation, while millions lose their health care, all I want to do is…..
Okay. I’ll go smack my pillow now.
Nobody Cares if I let off a little steam. So go….Enjoy Rand.
Elihu Root was the Secretary of War (1899-1903) under McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt and Secretary of State(1905-1909) under Roosevelt. After that he became a Senator from New York (1909-15) and received the Nobel Peace Prize. At the Constitutional Convention of the State of New York, on August 30, 1915, he had a lot to say about the evils of the “invisible government” that he said had run New York for many years. He said that the government was not elected but was responsible only to the party boss in control of the state. He wanted to change the system that he viewed as corrupt.
Here’s a few excerpts from his speech:
What is the government of this state? What has it been doing during the forty years of my acquaintance with it? The government of the constitution? Oh, no: not half the time or halfway. For I don’t remember how many years, Mr. Conkling was the supreme ruler in the state: the governor did not count, the legislature did not count, comptroller’s and secretaries of state and whatnot did not count. It was what Mr. Conkling said, and in a great outburst of public rage he was pulled down.
Then Mr. Platt ruled the state: for nigh twenty years.
The party leader is elected by no one, accountable to no one, bound by no oath of office, removable by no one. I don’t criticize the men of the invisible government. How can I? I have known them all, and among them have been some of my dearest friends. But it is all wrong. It is all wrong that a government not authorized by the people should be continued superior to the government that is authorized by the people.
How it is accomplished? Mr. Chairmen it is done by patronage. The elected officer or the appointed officer, who is to be held responsible for the administration of his office desired to get men into the different positions of his office who will do the work in a way that is creditable to him and his administration. Whether it be a president appointing a judge, or a governor appointing a superintendent of public works, whatever it may be.
How is it about the boss? He has to urge the appointment of men whose appointment will consolidate his power and preserve the organization. The invisible government proceeds to build up and maintain it power by a reversal of the fundamental principle of good government, which is that men should be selected to perform the duties of the office,
The true one, looks upon appointment to office with a view to the service that can be given to the public. The other the false one, looks upon appointment to office with a view to what can be gotten out of it. A great number of men are put on the payrolls as a matter of patronage not of service, but of party patronage.
(Can you say Ambassador to Norway?)
Both parties are alike, all parties are alike. The system extends thorough all.
I have been told forty times since this Convention met that you cannot change it. We can try, can’t we? I deny that we cannot change it. I repel that cynical assumption which is born of the lethargy that comes from poisoned air during all these years. I assert that this perversion of democracy, this robbing democracy of its virility can be changed.
We can take this one step toward, not robbing the people of their part in government but toward robbing an irresponsible autocracy of its indefensible and unjust and undemocratic control of government, and return it to the people to be exercised by the men of their choice and their control. We cannot change it in a moment but we can do our share.
When I read it, I thought of the Bushes, the Clinton’s, Reid and Boehner…because as I have said, it’s the leaders of both houses that control everything. And the best man at stacking the deck against the common man with his invisible government is our current ‘President’, Barack Obama.
And here, way back in 1915, Elihu Root, wanted to do something to break the monopoly of the ‘invisible government.”
Nobody Thinks Mr. Root was right, and yet…things remain the same these 99 years later.
Just last week, Justice Scalia reminded Americans that if they thought that America would never see the day, when our own government would gather people up and put them in FEMA camps–that day would never come. We should think again…it could happen.
The very fact that Obama is staffing every government department with bullets should make us think, what are THEY expecting?
This women, who has no name, has spoken the best way she can…to tell the world, this is about freedom.
So, she wins the Nobody’s Fool award…because there, but for the grace of god, go we.
Think it couldn’t happen here? A Supreme Court Justice, begs to differ, and so do I.
Every night, while I’m trying to figure out the next day’s blog, I have Mark Levin on the radio. I remember when he used to call up Sean Hannity and give his two cents…long before he had his own show and now is one of the top conservative voices in America.
In his book, Liberty and Tyranny, he attacks those whom Glenn Beck calls ‘progressives’. Mark calls them Statists. The rest of us just call them crooks. It’s a quick read, and although, if you read a lot, you won’t find anything surprising, but good, solid, common sense conservative ideas repeated again, in a very legal sense.
What IS worth noting is his conservative Manifesto at the back. Here’s a few of his ideas:
Eliminate the progressive income tax, replace it with a flat tax or national sales tax.
Eliminate the automatic withholding of taxes. Eliminate the corporate tax. Eliminate the death tax.
Limit federal spending each year to less than 29 percent of the gross domestic product.
Eliminate lifetime tenure for federal judges.
Eliminate monopoly control of government education.
Eliminate the federal Department of Education.
End multiculturalism, diversity and bilingualism in public institutions.
These are just a few…that all conservatives would LOVE to see happen: Trouble is, the last time the Republicans held all three branches, they kept on the ‘progressive’ and statist path, and in 2016, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Marko Rubio, and Paul Ryan, would all do the same, no matter what they say. I REMEMBER George W. Bush’s campaigning. He sounded just like Mark Levine. It’s all about the global corporations and the money in Washington. Unless we get non-progressive/statists in office, things will remain the same.
Rand Paul is trying to reform the Republican party from within. But…realistically, that’s not going to happen any time soon….and Rand Paul, says that a third party doesn’t have a chance.
He should know, he is the son of Ron Paul, who tried.
Still…It’s good for us to have these voices giving us hope everyday…but in the meantime..while Mark Levine’s can tell us HOW things should be, none of us see that happening short of revolution. Which is why this Nobody Thinks Obama is stocking up on bullets and training men in his $63 million dollar fake American city built in Virginia.
The NSA is telling them just how mad the people really are.
Anyway, Mark is a great American…the book is worth the read. Besides, let’s not forget that he was part of Reagan’s cabinet, and he quotes one of Reagan’s most famous lines at the end of his book:
“Freedom is never more than on generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Obamacare has now, truly enslaved us, and I agree with Mark:
“We Conservatives need to get busy.”
Last week, nobody made the point more succinctly than Charles Krauthammer on the fact that Obama has gone completely off the rails with executive actions. Despite this incredible fact, John Boehner stills has a suntan.
Krauthammer wins my Nobody’s Fool Award for the week…again.
And by the way, his book, “Things that Really Matter” is a great read. His knowledge of the Middle East and Israel was especially worth reading. (In the later chapters of his book.)
By now, you’d have to be a certified bonehead to trust your government. For instance, the fact that Obama didn’t even TALK about gun control during his State of the Union speech, has me worried. He only harped on it for three whole years. So why?
Well..it seems, very quietly, Obama has been arming every single government department under his executive reach. Even…the Post Office.
This from Info Wars:
On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges
And it’s not just the Post Office. I don’t know about you, but the LAST people I would want to arm would be my local postman. I still don’t believe I need to ‘tip’ him at Christmas. And that’s not all….he can’t officially make his own army by going through Congress…so he is just going to arm everybody that works for him:
Since 2001, the U.S. Dept. of Education has been building a massive arsenal through purchases orchestrated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
Can you imagine Johnny’s 3rd grade teacher coming after you?
The Education Dept. has spent over $80,000 so far on Glock pistols and over $17,000 on Remington shotguns.
Back in July, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also purchased 72,000 rounds of .40 Smith & Wesson, following a 2012 purchase for 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point by the National Weather Service.
Including mass purchases by the Dept. of Homeland Security, non-military federal agencies combined have purchased an estimated amount of over two billion rounds of ammunition in the past two years.
Additionally, the U.S. Army bought almost 600,000 Soviet AK-47 magazines last fall, enough to hold nearly 18,000,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo which is not standard-issue for either the U.S. military or even NATO.
I won’t even go into the fact that we have Chinese, Russians, and Iraq’s training right here on our own soil. And why did the Soviet’s get that contract? Do you smell a rat here?
Do you REALLY think your President…loves you?
And then, I read this: Justice Scalia is giving us all a heads’ up: He was commenting on the unlawful act committed by FDR, when he rounded up all Japanese and put them in barbed wired camps. He says this:
Well of course Korematsu was wrong. And I think we have repudiated in a later case. But you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again,” Scalia told students and faculty during a lunchtime Q-and-A session.
“That’s what was going on – the panic about the war and the invasion of the Pacific and whatnot. That’s what happens. It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again, in time of war. It’s no justification, but it is the reality,” he added, according to the Associated Press.
Nobody Wins, when a President arms every bozo in the government, and does it quietly, and without fanfare…and then invites the head of the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House.
Something tells me, it’s not the Muslim Brotherhood he’s worried about.
He is going to raise the minimum raise, because even McDonald’s and Wal-Mart are having to fire employees. Disney is having to stoop so low as to ADVERTIZE!
This has to stop. Sure, the rich got richer under Obama because of Ben Bernanke and the quantitative easing.
(Wall Street thanks you Obama, the rest of us…not so much.)
Oh boy. What does he know that we don’t?
Where’s my backpack?
Rand Paul has some ideas on how to stop the NSA from gathering everyone’s information. As far as I know, he’s leading this movement, and despite the vast propaganda on how much they need this power, I agree with Rand Paul. It’s overkill. There’s a better way, because as we saw with the IRS, any President can use it to his advantage.
It’s a fundamental right that we all deserve, and should fight for.
I noticed this letter, from a very pissed off veteran, from one of my Glenn Beck emails. The Chief Master Sergeant, would like his passionate letter to Paul Ryan to become viral, so I am doing my part. Feel free to pass it around to everyone. He wrote it after he had gotten a request from Paul Ryan for a donation.
Congressman Paul Ryan
Today at 8:19 AM
Please note that this request by you for a cash donation from me is extremely unfortunate and very ill-timed. You see sir, I am one of the military retirees your “bipartisan” budget just impacted. You and every Republican (both in the House and Senate that voted to pass this travesty betrayed and broke trust with me and everyone like me. You may not know us by name, but we’re the people, Congressman, who answered our Nation’s call, some of us at a very early age to willingly serve YOU and others LIKE YOU so you could safely attend college and pursue your personal ambitions without fear of harm.
You might also want to note that for at least 20 years, my brothers-in-arms answered that call of duty EVERY SINGLE DAY, without fail, without complaint, without enough money to sustain our loved ones we had to leave behind while we DID OUR JOB in every corner of the Earth. And for that service, we were given absolute assurance our so-called retirement benefits would be protected by law. The very law you shattered in your zeal to impress your Democratic cohorts in your back room deal–with the enemy. Yes, I said it. The liberal Democrats are an enemy to the American people and our Nation. Your lack of judgment and eagerness to compromise on the backs of us who protected you is sickening. Congressman, you and every Republican that voted for injuring military retirees have engaged in a complicit, sordid affair with the Democrats who’s objective has always been to dismantle the military. By climbing into their bed on this issue, you have confirmed you are absolutely no better than they and have proven it with your vote.
Congressman Ryan, the audacity which you display is noteworthy, but to unceremoniously snatch earned money from a small group that has added so much more value than the paltry $6B you looked to “save” (which is all smoke and mirrors and you know it), is reprehensible and insulting.
We have, despite the hardships, meager salaries and harsh conditions, have performed with honor and excellence…in silence, which is something most members of Congress have no idea about doing. Our job approval was, is and always be better than yours. We knew our mission and we got it done, then handed it off to a new generation in better shape than we found it.
Your ability to look us in the eye, take money from us (apparently there was ZERO, other source of waste within the federal government that you could have recovered this money from…right, got it), while simultaneously holding your hand out to beg (with passion) for our cash is stunning. Your actions have proven you do not have the tremendous intellect you’ve sold the American people on. I say, with all seriousness, Congressman, what you lack in intellect and spinal rigidity, you make up for in cajones.
I hope you and your cowardly, Republican “colleagues” hear a message from me loud and clear. You will NEVER receive another cent of financial support from me. Further, if you happen to be at a Capitol Hill dinner or at a K Street cocktail party with RNC Chair Reince Priebus, Rep. Ron Barber, Sen. Jeff Flake or Sen. John McCain, I would be honored if you communicate with them that I am launching an effort to ensure NONE of you traitorous “representatives of the people” ever receive another vote from a military retiree. Remove me from your contact lists.
Chief Master Sergeant, USAF (Ret)
I thought this kid was very cool, considering the cop was extremely aggravating.
Evidently In America, soon they will ration water. Maybe we should stop selling water from Lake Michigan to China— ya think?
In the beginning of Charles Krauthammer’s No. one bestseller, “Things that Matter” he makes the point that even though the things that really matter are outside of politics, politics is what influences literally everything:
“While science, medicine, art, poetry, architecture, chess, space, sports, number theory and all things hard and beautiful promise purity, elegance and sometimes even transcendence, they are fundamentally subordinate. In the end, they must bow to the sovereignty of politics. You can have the most advanced and efflorescent of cultures, Get your politics wrong, however, and everything stands to be swept away. This is not ancient history. This is Germany 1933.”
And so, with an American President that is becoming a dictator, we face the same surmise. What’s even worse, is we could face future force from our own President, who is building an army to obey…just him.
He has fired over 100 of our top generals. The new ones WILL disarm us.
Obama is not just a lame President: He is a dangerous man.
Many of you that read me, know that I have been talking about this exponentially expanding Presidency for years now. FDR had it perfected. Bill Clinton armed North Korea AND China. Bush set up Homeland Security…TSA searches became the norm. Everything they do that is against the America people and the Constitution, is sold to the American people as necessary—- protecting us.
The people that are crying out against Obama’s tyranny will be targeted, and punished. Obama has said so himself. The IRS scandal, that our politicians did nothing about, is proof. Our military being trained to spot patriots as the enemies of America (who is Obama) is proof. What more do you need? Obama has abandoned all former allies and now arms the very people who kill us.
Yet, his comrade professors are crying out for another term. Will Obama become the final American President?
Let me tell you what frightens me the most tonight: ‘President’ Obama and his wife, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, and George W. Bush, all got on Air Force One to fly to Africa.
Have you seen any pictures yet? Have you heard ANY reports? Two opposing parties, three Presidents and one future…all on Air Force One…and what could they possibly be talking about?
Tell me…where are all the propaganda pictures? That alone shows secrecy. And that’s not good.
I’ll tell you what they are not talking about: our horrible school system.
Remember hearing then President George W. Bush, laughing when he said, “If this was a dictatorship, we could get more done. As long as I’m the dictator. HEHHE”?
That wasn’t funny….but that’s the corporate executive response.
Presidents don’t even use Congress anymore, and why should Congress care? They don’t even read the bills they pass. Presidents get their laws through the vast unconstitutional apparatuses of ‘departments.’ Obama is always complaining about Congress. He wants Congress…abolished.
Yesterday would be fine by him.
Go to the library, look in the reference books for government offices, and you will see THOUSANDS of them. In fact, half of the population works for the government, and that’s by design. If you have half the people dependent on that government paycheck and pension, the other half won’t be able to get the people that work for the government to stand up to them.
It’s simple—–they like to eat.
That doesn’t leave much of the private sector left to support them AND the 93 million people that are out of work.
Krauthammer is right. Politics can destroy a country. Obama is amalgamation of communism, socialism and fascism—all of which…needs a dictator. And a few men are finally speaking out: FINALLY.
Obama doesn’t care about the law. There is so much proof that he wasn’t even eligible to run, it’s almost a joke. He lets our men die on the battle field. He encourages race riots. He follows the communist playbook for overtaking a government: Create the problem—-Come in with the solution. And because American children don’t even KNOW what communism is, they just don’t recognize it.
That was by design too.
They are taking our wills. Our jobs. Our very lives with denying us doctors.
They are turning the screws. They are leaving us…hopeless.
The official White House pictures that come out of the Mandela funeral kiss-affair will be interesting to see…
So, what can we do? The Presidency can kill anyone without trial: he can ruin their lives with IRS audits: he can suspend ANY law: he can gather dirt on anyone on the planet: he can send them (our soldiers) into dangerous places on HIS orders, without protection, watch them die, and then remain blameless.
Obama actually has the greatest power ever held by one man in human history.
What we will be sure to see..is more staged pictures of Presidents who hold secrets none of us can even imagine…or would want to.
At this point in time, I’m sure even John Adams would agree (If he saw Obama today) that the Presidency should be taken down to just a man who gets his picture taken in the White House and gives diplomatic parties.
Stripped of all power. George Washington never had the power to kill American citizens at a whim. If we can’t impeach the man, call a Constitutional Convention and strip him of the power he is using now to destroy us all.
Our Presidents have become Kings.. and the American people HAVE to stop them…because, in the end, as I am sure Charles would agree—-
The things that matter most won’t matter anymore, if our politics are wrong.
Ask yourself: What do the democrats like Harry Reid say most often? They complain that the republicans and the tea party are trying to destroy government. They want to turn people against the state. And today, Harry dismissed his act against the Constitution by changing the rules of the Senate, by saying “Hey, we change rules all the time. ” And he’s right, they do. Obama can change any law passed by Congress…all by himself. It’s unconstitutional . Obamacare is unconstitutional. And yet, they do not impeach him.
Our President is becoming a King.
But Nobody Remembers that In 1634, King Charles made his subjects in America take an oath to him, stating their duties to the government.. (See below.) Only…King Charles II objected to what he felt was an attitude of Independence. In 1665, he ordered that it be amended to include a pledge of “faith and true allegiance to our Sovereign Lord the King.”
This oath was the first document ever printed on a press in America. It was the Oath of Freeman in Massachusetts, which was approved by the Massachusetts General Court on May 14, 1634:
I…Being by God’s Providence an inhabitant and freeman within the jurisdiction of this commonwealth, do freely acknowledge myself to be subject to the government thereof: and therefore do swear by the great and dreadful name of the ever living God that I will be true and faithful to the same, and will accordingly yield assistance and support thereunto with my person and estate, as in equity I am bound: and will also truly endeavor to maintain and preserve all the liberties and privileges thereof, submitting myself to the wholesome laws and orders made and established by the same. And further, that I will not plot or practice any evil against it, or consent to any that shall so do: but will timely discover and reveal the same to lawful authority now here established for the speedy preventing thereof. Moreover, I do solemnly bind myself in the sight of God that, when I shall be called to give my voice touching any such matter of this state, in which freemen are to deal, I will give my vote and suffrage as I shall judge in my own conscience may best conduce and tend to the public weal of the body, without respect of persons or favor of any man. So Help me God in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Yes, we pledge that we would assist and support the King, with our persons and estate.
In Common Core our children are being taught the updated version of the oath: (From Freedom)
Yet another area in which Obama and his supplicants are destroying America is in the schools. In Common Core’s lesson plan for possessive nouns, the tots are taught that “He (the president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair” reads better if changed to “He makes sure the country’s laws are fair.” It may read better, but the president doesn’t make laws, Congress does. And if by “fair,” they mean constitutional, that’s the job of the Supreme Court. What’s more, if a Republican resided in the White House, I suspect Common Core would have referred to community organizers, not the president.
Lest you think, that was merely an unintentional oversight in the lesson plan, two of Common Core’s other examples are “The commands of government officials must be obeyed” and “The wants of the individual are less important than the well-being of the nation.”
Look how far we have come. Remember this? The Pledge of Allegiance to Obama: (And all the stuff he want you to do.) And Nobody also notes: Obama would LOVE Charles’s outfit.
Harry Reid, by his own words, has just destroyed the ‘vision and genius” of our country’s founding document forever.
I hope the conservatives flash this video all over the country…today, Harry Reid, as Senate Majority Leader, did exactly what he SWORE he would never do–changed the rules of the Senate (rules that had been in place for over 200 years) to give Obama complete control over who he wants to put into very powerful cabinet positions. This gives more power to Obama. He can now put a full-fledged communist into whatever place he wants, and the ‘minority’ is helpless to protect the country.
Add to that, Obama calling reporters to the White House to ‘tell’ them how to report on all his tyrannical changes, and you’ve got a dictator.
Harry was pathetic today, saying he did this for the ‘middle classes’ and ‘rules are changed all the time’, and how unfair everyone has been to Obama…
So this is how they are going to implement their final global carbon tax, and while the republicans will do nothing but hope that this will give them more seats in the next election, if rules can be changed so easily, what makes them think there will even be one?
Look out…here come MORE taxes!
