Pelosi: The Malicious Liar Who Shoved ObamaCare Down Our Throats

ObamaCarePelosiLiar

Nancy Pelosi Now Says She Never Heard of Jonathan Gruber – Yet Quoted Him By Name and Posted His Blog When She Was Speaker

In the wake of videos that reveal that an architect of ObamaCare deliberately lied to the American people because we are “too stupid” – Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday morning she had no idea who Jonathan Gruber was. Gruber, an Obamacare architect, admitted in video discovered this week that Democrats repeatedly lied to “stupid” Americans in order to pass the law.

So being caught and asked about her support of ObamaCare back when it was being written and debated, Pelosi denies she even knew who he was and denied he had a role in writing ObamaCare.

Via Twitchy:

But Nancy Pelosi IS A BIG FAT LIAR – and here is the evidence to prove that accusation:

The New York Times reported in 2009 what Gruber’s role was in drafting ObamaCare:

Jonathan Gruber Health Cares Mr. Mandate

[He] was brought in by the White House, Congressional staff members from both parties trusted him because he was seen as an econometric wonk, not a political agent. But soon his very involvement with the bill caused questions about his objectivity to be raised in the news media.

During and after the bill’s slog through Congress, he frequently spoke with reporters and wrote opinion pieces supporting the Affordable Care Act but did not always mention his role in helping to devise it.

Pelosi says she doesn’t know who Gruber is, yet she posted a link to his blog on her own web page in 2009.

xpelosi-lie-gruber-

 

Pelosi said she doesn’t know who Gruber is, yet she cites him BY NAME at a press conference about ObamaCare in 2009:

This Professor whom she cites, is revealed in this new unearthed video explaining the level of manipulation, exploitation and deceit to get ObamaCare passed: “It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter,” Gruber said at the Honors Colloquium 2012 at the University of Rhode Island.

So to cover up the conspiracy of lies, Nancy Pelosi lies bigger to cover up her role in the conspiracy to foist an illegal “Law” upon the people.

Refuse.  Defy.  Resist.

We have a DUTY to defy tyranny, because it has no legitimate authority over us, only that which power we grant it to have.

ObamaCare Has No Legitimate Authority

DefyObamaCare

ObamaCare Architect Jonathan Gruber confirms they lied to fool the people to pass the bill because ‘Americans are too stupid” to accept and understand the truth.

UPDATE With NEW VIDEO: “It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter,” Gruber said at the Honors Colloquium 2012 at the University of Rhode Island.

He confirms they lied to pass ObamaCare because Americans are ‘too stupid’ – not once, but multiple times on different occasions.

Does that piss you off?

Apparently not.  Most Americans have no idea what was done to pass an unConstitutional, bogus infringement on your life.

Just imagine, that during an “off-thecuff” press conference, former President Bush said that his Administration had to lie to the American people about WMDs in Iraq to get us into war over there because we were “too stupid” to know what was good for us.  The press, the media, the Left would go bonkers and the streets would fill with violent protests.

So it’s interesting that in the case of ObamaCare – when the architect admits they lied in order to get ObamaCare passed – because the American people are too stupid to know what is good for them…. that the press and media corps in this country refuse to report on it, Talk Radio and Fox News being the exception.

Since we know Nancy Pelosi said that ‘We have to pass it [ObamaCare] so you can find out what is in it”, we also are learning that they decided that they had to lie about it, in order to get it passed.  And Congress and the Supreme Court went along with the lie, redefined the lie and made the lie a force of ‘law’.

It is NOT a ‘law’.  It is tyranny – plain and simple, and the American people have a duty to defy, refuse, resist and oppose such tyranny by any and every means available at their disposal.

ObamaCare was built on a foundation of lies in order for the government to take control of your life by force if necessary.  Why do you think they put the IRS in charge of enforcing it??  They will crush you economically before sending armed agents to take everything you own and imprison you for refusal to comply.

Like the rest of the federal government, ObamaCare has no legitimate authority.  All it has is the power of a gun being put to our heads and reserving power to decide who gets healthcare and who does not.  Who lives, and who dies.

Not even King George III wielded such tyranny over the Colonists.

The Federal Government No Longer Has Any Legitimate Authority Over Us

DCIllegitimate

It is become beyond dispute that we are being subjugated by a lawless Federal tyranny that we seem powerless to stop.

Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. – Declaration of Independence

Part 1: Federal Lawlessness Gives Rise To A Beast

Lawless. That is what the U.S. Government has officially become under the Obama regime.  That is not to say that there has not been lawlessness in government until Obama, there has been plenty.   The difference is that until 2009 – lawlessness and corruption was never institutionalized.   Today it is standard practice at all levels of the federal government, making it the status quo in the highest offices in the land.

This is the core of what Obama really intended with “Fundamental Transformation”

Under his direction and with the assistance of the Ruling Class of both parties, the Federal Government is now a law and power unto itself.  The Executive makes laws by decree and empowered unaccountable bureaucrats with law-making ability that according the Constitution is reserved for Congress alone.  Such bureaucrats and ‘czars’  now make policy designed to punish, rob and enslave peoples and their property to the whims and dictates of the state without public recourse.  Lawlessness that is ignored, excused and said to be ‘necessary’, given lawful legal status via ‘precedent’.

The Congress itself has surrendered almost all it’s power via the Ruling Class in both parties to the Executive Branch, refusing to hold Obama’s regime accountable for clear violations of the Constitution while granting the Executive authority ascribed for Congress alone.  From declaring and waging war to ceding it’s taxing and spending power to Obama – the Ruling Class in Congress have abdicated their Constitutional duty.  This has enabled a defacto dictatorship that most Americans pretend does not exist.

In Washington, the Constitution is almost wholly ignored, usurped and only referenced when it benefits the protection or imposition of government rule and jurisdiction.  Even then, government rule and jurisdiction is often inserted in places it has no lawful authority.  Such as the EPA declaring jurisdiction over all water – creeks and streams and even rainwater runoff on private property – in the United States. Such ‘laws’ are often drafted in secret and imposed upon us with little-to-no public input or passed into “law” without a single member of Congress reading the bill.

The 10th Amendment is wholly ignored while courts tell states they have no standing in Federal matters to enforce laws the Obama regime has made policy to ignore.  Precedent is now the mechanism upon which rulings are handed down, and policies enacted rather than examination of each through the prism of the Constitution.

This is a candid fact: law in America now is arbitrary, determined to be whatever those in power decree it to be while exempting themselves from those very same laws.

And don’t look to the courts for protection and sanction against a corrupt and totalitarian state – they are part and parcel of foisting it upon us all.

Consider, actual laws passed by the majority of the people in the States are being decreed null and void by an Activist Judiciary and Just-Us Department pushing various agendas from homosexuality, Racial minority preference policies to South American insurgent amnesty.  What the voters overwhelming pass via referendum and ballot is overturned and declared a ‘violation of the Constitution’ usually via pretzel twists of logic to justify.

UpThe-Wazoo

Case-in-point; how many state laws, amendments and bans on homosexual marriage have the courts struck down like dominoes in recent months?  The will of the majority is totally ignored and decreed to be void, and those who refuse to comply are being warned they will be forced to accept and perform abomination as a matter of “law”.  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg violated the Judicial code of conduct by warning the Circuit Court judiciary that it must rule in favor of Homosexual Marriages in several states it is being challenged or face having themselves being ruled against by SCOTUS.

There is a mountain of evidence in our faces that the current federal government is corrupt beyond measure and no longer bound by the rule of law in a civil society as established by our Founders.  Indeed it is a doctrine on the Left and often cited by the MarxoFascist politicians in power – that a document written by dead people should have no bearing on the living.  This is the actual intent they mean by the term ‘Living Constitution”.  It should be ignored, changed or abolished on whatever whim is decided by those in power when it is decreed to be a benefit to “the people” because government should not be “held hostage by a bunch of dead white racist slave-owners”.

And such is the blueprint for totalitarian tyranny and oppression.  The kind one finds in Socialist utopias like North Korea and Cuba,

Such is not a Republic.  Such is a vile meddlesome “progressive” tyranny of the likes not even the Founders suffered.

The fact is friend, we are a society no longer governed by moral law, but ruled by the tyranny of wicked, unprincipled men that mirrors the basest of society that affords them their seats of power for a promise and a bribe.

abandoned-church

The reason for this is that a majority of the American people are no longer governed by God.   They pay Him lip service at best and perhaps warm a seat for an hour or two once-a-week, but no longer are living by and promoting His Moral Laws and Authority as Supreme.   Churches are shrinking and a growing majority of Americans now claim they are ‘spiritual’ rather than beholden to biblical foundations.   The zeitgeist promoted by the media and entertainment is that Government is now god; the arbiter of morality and fairness. In this devolution of society, the federal beast became self-aware of it’s need to dominate all life and behavior in the country and is acting on that inherent desire to rule.

Such a government is a blasphemy to a Biblically-adherent people, and it’s institutionalized corruption and promotion of wickedness renders it illegitimate.

There are many candid facts in recent news that make the illegitimacy of this government self-evident.  I’ll cite just two, but I am certain you would be able to find myriad such examples to illustrate the fact that the current federal government in Washington D.C. has no legitimate moral authority over a people it now rules rather than represents.

Barack Obama,

IRS Lawlessness

The greatest illustration of the fact the federal government is now lawless, can be seen by the IRS scandal whereby the Executive and his party used the agency to intimidate, harass and punish Americans who are considered to be political opponents of Obama and his party.

The most feared federal agency in the United States is the IRS, which has the power to seize everything you own and every thing your posterity will ever own, including rendering you to prison – where you are guilty until proving your innocence in tax court.  Most Americans comply with the IRS out of fear, not out of respect.  A real and present danger is that we are growing complacent by the precedent of the IRS being used as a political weapon at the same time it absolves itself from the same requirements mandated upon the citizenry.

In a Congressional investigation of the abuses at the IRS, the agency’s heads not only asserted that they are above the law, but insinuated that the law is not applicable to them.  When hard drives were demanded, they asserted the drives were ‘damaged’ and the e-mail evidence sought by Investigators, “lost”, negating to report the “loss” in violation of the Federal Records Act since that evidence was under subpoena.

If the NSA has copies of every email on this planet from the service vendors, from every citizen’s electronic communication, there is without a doubt copies of her emails on some server somewhere. But the entire regime from Obama to the InJustice Department is concealing, obstructing and conspiring.  That truth became evident in an admission from Obama’s Just-Us department itself: DOJ Admits Lois Lerner’s E-mails Exist – But Refuses To Retrieve or Release Them To Investigators.

Now there is a deliberate pattern of this excuse after the IRS now claims that it has lost MORE emails from FIVE other IRS agents involved in specific congressional probes into the agency’s targeting of conservative groups.  These include the IRS employees in Cincinnati who were initially blamed for the scandal, and their e-mails to Lois Lerner and other high-up officers in the IRS that were under subpoena have ‘gone missing’.

Every official testifying before Congress, including Koskinen has committed and is committing perjury on this.  He stated yesterday, that not only did the IRS lose subpoenaed files from Lois Lerner’s crashed computer hard drive, but the same fate befell her Blackberry which Koskinen stated was destroyed reiterating that there is no outside system to store agency emails. The IRS chief stated before the Investigative hearing;   “Hard drive crashes continue as we speak”.  Yet you try to use that same excuse for your tax return, and the full weight and might of punishment is brought to bear upon you.

As expected,  the Praetorian Media for Obama has refused to report the story – and the facts are lost in a cacophony of government delay and distraction tactics.  The DOJ investigation itself is corrupted while the IRS continues to be used as a weapon of intimidation by Obama and his party.

You would think that such a government agency would maintain it’s integrity to the law so as to affect voluntary compliance with the law.  We might say that if the IRS no longer follows the law and instead follows a policy to punish political enemies of Obama and the Democrats, why should you or I follow the law they are in charge of enforcing???

The answer to that is because ‘voluntary’ is no longer a consideration.  ‘FORCED COMPLIANCE’ is the intent and as such, laws are arbitrary and irrelevant in carrying out an agenda.

According to the IRS director himself, the IRS is no longer bound by the laws that bind you and I.   He stated before a Congressional hearing that “Wherever [they] can, we follow the law”  in reference to the fact it had violated the law and inferring the IRS can choose not to follow the law if it deems it imprudent.

The implication is that it is simply impossible for a federal agency to follow the law, yet the IRS is authorized to punish any citizen who violates tax law, knowingly or unknowingly.

Now perhaps you might begin to understand why a lawless regime and party put the IRS in charge of mandating compliance with ObamaCare.

This is just the IRS scandal.  What about federal agencies that are now tasked with implementing Obama’s ideological agenda rather than upholding the law?

EPA Water Confiscation

EPA Abolishment of your rights.

The IRS is not the only Federal agency run by the Executive that has been used by Obama as a weapon.

EPA defies court order and destroys incriminating evidence that it interfered with the 2012 election.

Here’s another Federal agency, unaccountable to the American people, defying laws and being used as a weapon to harass and intimidate political opponents, chosen objects for policy implementation and a vehicle to strip away your right to property without compensation or recourse.

 EPA to take over all streams, creeks and water in the USA – stripping private property rights.

In a move lawmakers and farmers are calling “the biggest land grab in the history of the world,” the Environmental Protection Agency is requesting jurisdiction over all public and private streams in the United States that are “intermittent, seasonal and rain-dependent.”  Control all the water, you control all life.  That it seems is the agenda and the intent under the guise of ‘environmental justice’.

Your Constitutional Right to be secure in your property, or to be fairly compensated monetarily for it – no longer applies, because EPA policy trumps the Constitution.  I’m not even listing all the recent news about the EPA following Obama’s dictates to shut down electricity plants and coal mines with regulations and requirements so ridiculous that it is obvious to any honest observer that the intent is to destroy the people’s access to affordable electricity.  But a mechanism without public oversight or recourse to strip from you, your property and it’s use over ‘water rights’ is no different than if your property was just seized from you at gunpoint because the government decided the tax revenue of your property in the hands of developers is worth more money to them.  Oh wait, that’s a real deal too.

**

These are just two citations of two federal government entities that do not respect or follow the Supreme Law of the Land, and are being used to impose overt tyranny upon us.  I could write a blog that would encompass a volume of such instances – but these two illustrate with perfect clarity – that the federal government is completely and totally lawless, implementing tyranny disguised as law.  Imposing it in such a way as to be accepted without resistance by a people they seek to rule, and not represent.

Obama has said strategically: “The government is us”.  For all the claims of Obama being inept, this statement alone reveals the ingenious mindset of imposing a tyranny.

The insidious purpose of this statement is to equate liberty with government.  On one side of his face Obama says tyranny of government is impossible because the government “is us”.  Creating the illusion that your neighbors support what is being done to you and it is for your own good.    The statement is intended for all to accept the belief that the bigger and more intrusive the government (defined as ‘success’), the more liberty you will have.   Any failings or misery are because of the people who will not support the government’s rule and imposition of it’s will, not that government itself is ever to blame.    History teaches that despotic leaders use this technique to great effect; creating the illusion that all powerful government is freedom and that the majority WANTS the tyranny being imposed.  The acceptance of that mindset is how Beasts of oppression are able to operate without fear of those they intend to subjugate.

The technique is to get the people to believe is that what is being done by government is of the people and therefore everything they do, legitimate.

Even when the government trods upon the Laws of God, of nature and the Constitution.

Since the Federal Government has made it policy to trod upon those things, I declare they no longer have any legitimate moral authority over a people who are beholden to the Laws of God, of nature and the Constitution.

So what to do?  What is our recourse?  Do we submit and kneel to this?  Do we do as Europeans and accept tyranny and corruption as the ‘new normal’?  Do we throw up our hands and say “Oh well” consigning our posterity to a lifetime of misery?  Do we embrace it and hope to get a parcel of redistributed wealth, property and provision?  Do we revolt?  How do we revolt?  Do we just take to the streets and sow mayhem like we saw in Ferguson, MO??

No.  None of the above.

The amazing thing is that most Americans have become totally ignorant of their history and the answer to what we should do now is contained there.

Scripture tells us in Hosea 4:6 -

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”

First we must understand out history and the mindset our Founders once had; a mindset they possessed because their main source of knowledge was the bible, followed by the understanding of history and human nature.

The first battle to be won in any war is of and for the mind.  We have to come to an understanding and consensus of agreement that leads directly into courses of action We The People are able and willing and justified to take if we want any hope of holding onto what is left of our liberty.

I will detail that history and recommendations we should consider in the next entry.

The Rule of Law Is Dead In America

Constitution-Dead

Obama’s latest bypassing of Congress to implement a Climate Change Treaty by decree illustrates there is now only Rulers and the Ruled

I have been working for the last few weeks on an essay series related to what a moral and religious remnant must understand in the light of current events and politics under the Obama regime.

The affronts to what is left of our Constitutional Republic are happening now daily – almost to the point we cannot keep up with them.  We reel from yesterday’s affronts while new ones break today.  Americans are growing weary of outrage – as the tripwires to prevent despotic tyranny via the checks and balances instituted in our government system are compromised, ignored or overthrown altogether.   Most of the Federal Representatives in Congress have decided to go along with this velvet coup, because they know where the power is going to lie and they want a seat at the table so they can pass their hat and have our money thrown in it.

This is all by design – a technique of attrition to trod any resistance into surrender and capitulation.

What it lays before us in raw form, is the undeniable fact that the rule of law in America is dead.  There is now only law made or agreed to by the rulers to be imposed on those of us they rule.

Karl Denninger at Market Ticker just posted an excellent opening entree to the essays I have been working on and will post soon.

The Impending Catastrophe

It’s not difficult to see this coming, if you bother to look.

There is no rule of law any more if you’re a government employee — or one of those protected by same.

Let’s put together just a partial list:

  • Health care.  Monopoly and/or cartel behavior of any sort is supposed to be illegal under 15 USC (Sherman and Clayton Acts) if market power exists.  When you’re flat on your ass with a heart attack in process there is no market; ergo, it exists.  Ditto when you were just stung by a scorpion, or when the so-called “treating facility” refuses to present you with a price before they have you on the operating table — and they told you that the operation was immediately necessary to save your health and/or life.  That’s essentially all procedures except for elective, cosmetic ones — where there is actual competition and prices have fallen over time.  All of this behavior, from charging $60,000 for two $100 vials of scorpion antivenom, charging someone $9,000 to bandage a finger or billing a routine $10-30 test at $10,000 is part and parcel of this, and in any unprotected line of business everyone involved would do 10 years of prison time and be fined $1 million each.
  • Government agencies, such as the IRS and NSA.  The number of times that have been documented in which perjury has been committed, a crime, (cough-Clapper-cough!) is too long to list.  We now find out that in the IRS targeting investigation not only is there a backup of Lerner’s computer (as I originally asserted there had to be) but IRS lawyers admitted to the intentional destruction of the data on her BlackBerry after the investigation began.  For you or I that would immediately result in an obstruction of justice felony charge leveled against everyone involved – including Lerner herself.  Well, where is it?
  • Education.  Cartel behavior at its finest.  You can find virtually any sort of knowledge and lectures on any topic you wish online nowdays.  Yet without obtaining them at a price infinitely higher than those freely available, the exact same material I might add and often delivered by the exact same professors, your knowledge is deemed immaterial and worthless.  This occurs due to cartel behavior between universities and businesses — again, something that should bring immediate prosecution under 15 USC.  Well, where is it?
  • Education again.  Not content to try to force you to pay them something they also conspire to force you to pay more.  Once you’re a captive sucker you get hammered on all sides; you are first told to file a FASFA in which your parents must disclose their assets and income, never mind that you’re an adult.  Then, if you’re not poor, despite this being sold to you as being a means of obtaining “aid”, you are offered only loans, which are not aid at all.  This particular cartel behaviorincludes the government as they will attempt to force you to file one even to claim things they say are earned, such as “Bright Futures” scholarships!  Once you get to class it’s even worse; your son or daughter who paid the full price (and had to borrow the money and thus pay interest too!) is sitting next to a kid who paid little or nothing.  How?  Your son or daughter was effectively forced to buy his tuition!  Communism at its finest, all at gunpoint.
  • So-called “law enforcement.”  Point a gun at another person when you are not legally permitted to shoot (e.g. to stop a forcible felony in process) and you are arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon (or aggravated assault in some jurisdictions.)  The identical behavior was documented on video and still camera images all over Ferguson by the police; where are the indictments?
  • Banks.  Swindle someone out of $10,000 and it’s grand theft, extortion, fraud or any one of a dozen other crimes, all serious felonies.  Hell, all you have to do is a pass a bad check in many jurisdictions to wind up on the wrong end of a felony indictment!  It has been proved that myriad large banks sold securities to customers representing them as “good investments” when in fact their own internal emails document that their staff called them “vomit” (and other similar names) — that is, they knew they were worthless.  Where are the indictments?
  • The Federal Reserve.  The Federal Reserve Act specifically charges the FOMC with regulating both money and credit so as to maintain stable prices, moderate long term interest rates and maximum employment.  Maximum employment may be a loosely-defined goal as may “moderate” long-term interest rates but stable is not a fuzzy word.  The Federal Reserve has willfully and intentionally violated this mandate serially since its inception.  You have about 3-4% of your earnings powerstolen every single year as a consequence.  Where are the indictments?
  • Ben Bernanke has admitted that (in his view) virtually all systemically important financial firms were on the edge of collapse in 2008.  This, he cites, is justification for his extraordinary policy moves.  There’s a problem — his mandate is to regulate said money and credit systems all the time, not just in a crisis.  That filing is an admission that both he and the NY Fed failed to do so; that is, they failed to perform their statutory duty.  Why aren’t both he and Tim Geithner in prison, seeing as he made this admission before a court in a sworn filing?

Here’s the problem with this sort of behavior and the protection of same: Civility in general only exists because you, I, and most of the rest of society willingly conform our behavior to the law.  

There are not enough cops, no matter what sort of badge and uniform they wear, to enforce the law otherwise.  If any material percentage of the population decides to behave as these people in their protected circumstances have and do the entirety of law and order collapses instantly.

Well, why is it that you permit the above to occur?  Why did you allow it to develop?  Why do you still allow it?

And how long will it before all of this theft and fraud renders you unable to keep your head above water?

Let me explain that for you: For most people you’re already unable.

Look at the stock market, as one example.  There is more margin debt outstanding than cash in accounts as of today, and in fact this margin is worse than ever before in history (yes, even worse than in 2007.)  In other words, but for the claimed paper value of said certificates the market is factually bankrupt right now on a gross, “every man” basis!

Almost 20% of the gross domestic product of this nation (that is, everything produced) is siphoned off by the health care “system” with its grift, extortion and abuse.  That’s nearly one dollar in five!  A look at other developed, first-world nations (e.g. Japan) discloses that we should be able to buy our health care for somewhere between 1/10th and 1/5th of what we pay today.  Were that to be the case there would be no need for Medicare, Medicaid or health insurance — Obamacare or otherwise! Medicare is a great example; you’re responsible for 20% of the cost, by default, and you must pay a premium to the government.  But if your care was anywhere from 1/5th to 1/10th of today’s price you would actually pay less than the co-pay and deductible you pay today and you wouldn’t pay any premium at all!  In other words, even for the old guy or gal that currently is “on the dole” and allegedly “getting something” you’d be better off financially without Medicare were all of these acts to be prosecuted instead of protected!  Whether you’re rich, poor, young or retired, this scam steals from you each and every day without delivering any more value than it would without the theft.

Take the scam out of education and the cost collapses.  Now you could flip pizzas to pay for college as you could in the 1970s and early 80s before those schemes were instituted.  Prosecute The Federal Reserve Board and Banks and the price of assets, including houses would collapse — probably by 75% or more.  Not only does this mean you could buy a house for far less but for those who choose not to or who can’t rents would come down by 3/4 as well!

Why do you need Section 8 and other similar programs when your cost of housing is cut to a tiny fraction of what it is today?

You don’t!

If you believe that the cost of food hasn’t skyrocketed in the last five years you’re not paying attention.  It has.  Ditto for energy.  Oh yes, those are “excluded” from “inflation” numbers, but you have to buy them anyway.

So what happens when you can’t make the income balance against the outflow?  You borrow money in some form or fashion.

Yet that simply puts you further in the hole.

And that’s what’s been going since roughly 1980:

Of course borrowing against nothing, that is, creating credit with nothing behind it, looks good initially because it makes it appear you can keep buying things.  Unfortunately that credit comes with both a requirement to repay it and interest; the latter is a huge problem because over time it compounds just as do earnings.

The usual chestnut is that borrowing stimulates production and is of net benefit.  But the facts are that when borrowing accumulates faster than output that assertion is proved false; what is really going on is that people are borrowing to either consume or speculate.  The former permanently destroys value and the latter leaves you exposed to instant insolvency since the alleged “price” of what you speculate on has been disconnected from its value and is now largely (or even entirely!) predicated only on what someone else will pay.

The majority opinion appears to be that as long as you can get your little piece of the grift, whether it be Medicare, Food Stamps, Section 8 or a rising stock market it’s all ok.  Ask yourself — is that actually true or are you deluding yourself?  Are you falling behind despite getting your little piece of the grift or are you getting ahead?  What about your children?  Are they able to get ahead?  Is the same sort of investment you made 20 or 30 years ago credible as a means for them to obtain results similar or superior to what you obtained, or are they staring down a black hole of indebtedness while pulling coffees at Starbucks?  How about that “new car”; nearly $40,000 today as a “median” price and loan terms extending toward eight years — when just a little while ago the normal term was four.  How’s the job market in your area?  More importantly than the number of jobs — how’s the pay and how does that compare against the increase in health care, food, fuel and insurance expenses you must pay every day just to remain solvent?

Think about it for a while.

Then once again contemplate this: For how long as you going to allow all of the above to continue?  Will you allow it to continue right up until civility is lost entirely or will you demand that it stop and that those committing these acts face the same charges and penalties that you or I would for the same offenses?

Obama Treason And Scandals: All To Be Swept Under The Rug

UnderTheRug

The VA, Benghazi, IRS Targeting, Solyndra, Bailouts, Obamacare…. the list of high crimes continues to mount and the Obama regime and his Praetorian media say there is nothing to see.

The scandals and crimes are mounting, but anyone daring to look into them will be targeted by the Obama regime and it’s MarxoFascist party apparatchiks and immediately declared to be a racist deserving of a firing squad.

The excuses when asked by brave reporters bucking the Praetorians may end up costing them their careers and lives if history repeats itself when a totalitarian regime decides to eliminate anyone asking questions about it.  For now, ridicule, ostracization and charges of racism seem to be sufficient to silence the majority while the Praetorian Media ideologues at CNN have established the excuse for  the media’s silence on Obama’s various scandals by declaring “We will not be SHAMED INTO Covering Benghazi” – or any of the other scandals and crimes this Marxofascist regime is involved.  The narrative is that the questions and investigations are nothing but Right Wing Tea Party witch-hunts, which in themselves should be deemed criminal and actionable.

Like I said – history teaches us what Totalitarian Marxist regimes do to anyone daring to question, challenge or look into crimes, scandals and tyranny.

For now, it is all getting swept under the rug.

“If these allegations are true…”

ObamaSweeps

Often there is one iconic picture that captures the essence of a Presidential administration; Gerald Ford falling, Richard Nixon entering the helicopter, Ronald Reagan riding a horse. The above image is the one history will use for the Obama administration. I was going to put this up as a Most Wanted and then I decided against it. I wanted to once more emphasize what a deceitful lying sack of manure our President is and leave it out for a while so the stench can find its way into the nostrils of the agnostic left.

By now we all know about the VA scandal.

We all know that this is a prelude to what Obamacare will look like.

And we all know that this is going the way of all the other scandals. If there was any doubt as to that Obama himself removed it when he said:

“So, if these allegations prove to be true, it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful, and I will not tolerate it, period,”

If?

IF????

As Jake Tapper said:

“How many dead veterans do you need?”

Several weeks of Obama silence about the scandal passed during which Obama most likely hoped this would go away and undoubtedly sat down with Valerie Jarrett to decide how he should feel about it.

So what does one do when one needs something to be buried? One delays it, just as he has done with Obamacare. And what will the means be to delay this scandal?

Investigations

“But we have to let the investigators do their job and get to the bottom of what happened.”

Hold on a minute. If these are mere allegations and might not be true, what is it Obama finding “disgraceful” and “dishonorable”? What is it that he won’t “tolerate”?

He is full of shit. There’s no other way to put it.

Obama knew about the trouble at the VA in 2008. He campaigned on it. He ripped Bush about it.

“After seven years of an Administration that has stretched our military to the breaking point, ignored deplorable conditions at some VA hospitals, and neglected the planning and preparation necessary to care for our returning heroes, America’s veterans deserve a President who will fight for them not just when it’s easy or convenient, but every hour of every day for the next four years.”

We have also learned Obama rewarded with bonuses those who allowed the vets to die.

Sharon Helman, the director of the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care System, “got an $8,500 bonus last month while there was an open [inspector general] investigation into Phoenix,” Chairman Miller told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview Wednesday.

It had been previously reported that Helman received more than $9,000 in bonus pay in 2013 on top of her annual salary of $169,900. The VA office of inspector general began investigating the Phoenix VA for wrongdoing in December 2013, months before Helman received the additional $8,500 bonus.

Government rewards with bonuses those who can save it money. The bonus apparently has been rescinded once the media caught wind of this mess, but not before.

Over at the National Journal Ron Fournier asks the question

“How Dumb Does Obama Think We Are?”

as if to distance himself from the rest of the lapdog media.

News quiz: President Obama and his communications team hope that Americans are: 1) Dumb; 2) Distracted; 3) Numb to government inefficiency; 4) All of above.

Answer: 4, all of the above.

That answer along with utter incompetence are the best explanations for why the White House thought it could get away with claiming that the departure of Veterans Affairs official Robert Petzel was a step toward accountability for its scandalous treatment of war veterans.

Fournier adds:

For all of its 21st-century savvy in the field of campaign technology, the Obama White House has repeatedly proven that its communications philosophy is stuck in the 20th century. Before the Internet gave voters instantaneous access to information, including every public utterance of the president and his team, White House strategists could hope to wear out the truth: If you said a lie enough, people might believe it.

In high school I had a Social Studies teacher who, when one of us uttered something with a shred of intelligence, would proclaim

“Came the dawn!”

Mr. Fournier, you are dumb. Obama knows you’re dumb. You’ve been dumb since 2007 when Obama decided to run for President. You and your colleagues put all of your journalistic tools in the junk drawer, sat on Obama’s lap and decided to swallow all the lies and propaganda because Obama was a novelty President. Every single scandal has been handled in this manner- hide it, lie about it, deny it, obstruct it, delay it. Obama continues to do it because you and your dumbass colleagues have let Obama get away with it.

There is an old joke that goes like this:

The story is told of the farmer who sold a rube a mule, telling the rube that the mule would only respond to Tender Loving Care. A week later the rube returned, irate, because the mule refused all commands and did no work whatsoever.

“Really,” said the farmer thoughtfully. He went to his woodpile, selected a firm branch, and with all his might bashed the mule right across the eyes with it. The mule’s four legs shot straight out, it brayed in outrage, and collapsed in a heap.

“Hey!” shouted the rube as the mule slowly staggered back to consciousness. “I thought you said the mule needed TLC!”

“He does – but first you’ve got to get his attention.”

You wonder how many times you have to bash a journalist. Still, there is a glimmer of hope:

The VA has admitted that at least 23 veterans nationwide died while waiting to see a doctor.

“If these allegations prove to be true, it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful, and I will not tolerate it, period,” Obama said in the press conference.

But Griffin told CNN’s Jake Tapper afterward that he was “caught off guard by what apparently is a disconnect by what’s happening out in the country and what the president is talking about.”

No investigation is needed to determine whether the abuses actually happened, Griffin said.

“I hate to be curt, but these GAO reports, these Office of Inspector General reports, these memos dating back to 2010 and 2008 — this problem is real,” he said. “It exists. It really doesn’t have to be studied as to what’s going on.

“The government has done its job studying these issues, and to say that you’re going to now wait for yet again more studies to come back and more fact-finding to come back, I would think that the vets I’ve been talking to, wanted much more direct action of what actually is going to happen going forward, instead of, ‘wait and see and then we’ll decide what’s going to happen going forward.’”

Griffin pointed out that the White House has been pointing out in recent days that Obama knew of the long wait times for years. The Bush administration told the Obama transition team about it in 2008, but Obama was talking about it on the campaign trail and as a U.S. senator as early as 2007.

“At the same time he was saying he’s known about this problem for years and years and years and it goes back decades, far past into other people’s presidencies, and yet we’re five years into his presidency and the problem seems to be certainly not better and perhaps even worse,” Griffin said.

But I am not holding my breath.

Obama’s lip service treatment of veterans should come as no surprise to anyone with a brain:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance.

Sadly, we know the truth. Obama supporters have no brain and that’s not covered by Obamacare.

Despotism In America – Foretold With Chilling Accuracy

Lord-King-Obama

America’s fate is sealed if the warnings of history and human nature tell us anything about where we have arrived as a nation and a people.

History repeats itself because people forget the lessons of history.   200 years ago, historian Alexis DeToqueville wrote an exhaustive examination of the American experiment in a 2-volume book entitled “Democracy In America“.

DeToqueville was curious how liberty and freedom were protected and enshrined in the aftermath of the War of Independence in the American Republic, but failed miserably in his native France to tyranny and terror shortly after our own Constitution was written.  How could Democracy work in one case, but fail and fall into terror and dictatorship in another?

His work is a seminal masterpiece that nails the reasons for success in the American Republic, and also nails the reasons for much of mankind’s history with despotic governments and tyranny.  While lauding the genius of America’s founding system, there are several parts of “Democracy In America” that read like prophetic warnings – and indeed they are.  The history of man is replete with examples of what always occurs to a self-governing people once they stray from their founding principles.  What DeToqueville notes that most in today’s America do not allow themselves to consider, is how fragile our liberty and Republic were.

For all our technology and advances in knowledge, America has lost it’s wisdom once held in high esteem and valued in our society.  We have ignored the warnings of scripture and our Founders themselves.  We have devolved into a post-modern, post-Constitutional mobocracy led by an oligarchy.  Something DeToqueville warned about with chilling accuracy when one considers where we now are with what he wrote.

Thanks to Mark Levin on his radio program last night for reminding those of us who have read this work, just how prophetic and prescient it is.  DeToqueville warns in Volume II Chapter VI about the kind of despotism a nation like America had to fear, and Mark read this part of the chapter on air.  He followed with a question every American now should ask himself: is this where we have arrived?  Is Despotism now our fate?

Read this part of the chapter yourself and ask yourself that same question.

A warning witness was given to us IN ADVANCE of where this civil society would go if we were not diligent to safeguard it from man’s nature to rule and dominate others.

 

DetToqueville

Democracy in America

Chapter VI: What Sort of Despotism Democratic Nations Have to Fear 

Page 770-772

I seek to trace the novel features under which despotism may appear in the world. The first thing that strikes the observation is an innumerable multitude of men all equal and alike, incessantly endeavoring to procure the petty and paltry pleasures with which they glut their lives. Each of them, living apart, is as a stranger to the fate of all the rest – his children and his private friends constitute to him the whole of mankind; as for the rest of his fellow-citizens, he is close to them, but he sees them not – he touches them, but he feels them not; he exists but in himself and for himself alone; and if his kindred still remain to him, he may be said at any rate to have lost his country. Above this race of men stands an immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone to secure their gratifications, and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild.

This reads like a history of the last 20 to 40 years in America.  How detached from We The People are those politicians in Washington?  How above us do the Obama’s live on our tax dollars, eating Waygu beef and enjoying multiple million-dollar vacations while lecturing us to eat vegetables and sacrifice for the ‘greater good’?  Is the government not now become the arbiter of granting multitudes of ‘civil rights’ to satisfy every desire and demand both benign and obscene?  He goes on to describe how a people would succumb and surrender to such a meddlesome tyranny:

It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing. For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness: it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances – what remains, but to spare them all the care of thinking and all the trouble of living?

Thus it every day renders the exercise of the free agency of man less useful and less frequent; it circumscribes the will within a narrower range, and gradually robs a man of all the uses of himself. The principle of equality has prepared men for these things: it has predisposed men to endure them, and oftentimes to look on them as benefits.

What is the main push and point from the MarxoFascist Left in America?

Equality.  Making everyone equal except themselves.  Forcing all into the lowest common denominator by force of law and regulation.  ObamaCare is one of the greatest mechanisms for tyranny in our time – yet this people not only are surrendering to it and enduring it, but are accepting the political lecturing that such tyranny is a ‘benefit’.

After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp, and fashioned them at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided: men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting: such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.

Is this not what we in America have become?  A flock of timid and industrious animals that are herded by the government because it is seen as a god and shepherd?  The government then limiting and punishing individuals and enterprises to the point we all feel like we are in chains?

Then DeToqueville lays out what almost seems like a blueprint that America followed to get us to this point of our devolution into a subservience to despotism and slavery to the state.

I have always thought that servitude of the regular, quiet, and gentle kind which I have just described, might be combined more easily than is commonly believed with some of the outward forms of freedom; and that it might even establish itself under the wing of the sovereignty of the people. Our contemporaries are constantly excited by two conflicting passions; they want to be led, and they wish to remain free: as they cannot destroy either one or the other of these contrary propensities, they strive to satisfy them both at once. They devise a sole, tutelary, and all-powerful form of government, but elected by the people. They combine the principle of centralization and that of popular sovereignty; this gives them a respite; they console themselves for being in tutelage by the reflection that they have chosen their own guardians. Every man allows himself to be put in leading- strings, because he sees that it is not a person or a class of persons, but the people at large that holds the end of his chain. By this system the people shake off their state of dependence just long enough to select their master, and then relapse into it again. A great many persons at the present day are quite contented with this sort of compromise between administrative despotism and the sovereignty of the people; and they think they have done enough for the protection of individual freedom when they have surrendered it to the power of the nation at large.

And that my countrymen, could be engraved on the epitaph of our nation as the reason we succumbed.

The Communist States of Amerika

ForwardNerObama

Cultural MarxoFascism (Progressivism) has replaced the Judeo-Christian Culture, overthrowing our Republic for a Communist State.

Read it and weep.  An honest person cannot refute the truth of where this nation finds itself.

The Communist States of America

A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.

If, for instance, one mentions the historical fact that nearly every adult who, at any time, was in any position of influence over a young, soon-to-be-radicalized Barry Soetoro was an avowed communist, to include his own parents, then one is immediately mocked and dismissed as a neo-McCarthyite hack pining for the bygone days of the Red Scare. This is an evasive, ad hominem strategy employed by those who are caught, for lack of a better word, red-handed.

To all this I say, if the jackboot fits, wear it. If it quacks like a commie and goose-steps like a commie, then a commie it is.

There are multiple layers within “progressivism’s” pseudo-utopian, truly dystopian Marxist philosophy. The left’s lust for redistributionist statism is well-known. Less understood, however, is the “progressive” rush toward cultural Marxism.

Cultural Marxism entails, among other things, that secularist aspect of left-wing statist ideology that seeks, within society, to supplant traditional values, norms and mores with postmodern moral relativism. Cultural Marxists endeavor to scrub America of her Judeo-Christian, constitutional-republican founding principles, and take, instead, a secular-statist Sharpie to our beloved U.S. Constitution.

Historian and U.S. military affairs expert William S. Lind describes cultural Marxism as “a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as ‘multiculturalism’ or, less formally, Political Correctness. From its beginning, the promoters of cultural Marxism have known they could be more effective if they concealed the Marxist nature of their work, hence the use of terms such as ‘multiculturalism.’”

Pastor, attorney and Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively is globally admired by liberty-loving traditionalists. Conversely, he’s universally reviled by cultural Marxists. He drills down a bit deeper: “Cultural Marxism is a variation of the Marxist strategy to build a utopian socialist order on the ashes of Christian civilization, but through subversion of the moral culture, especially the elimination of the natural family, rather than solely through destruction of capitalism.”

True though this may be, the ideological seeds of contemporary cultural Marxism nonetheless sprout from deep within the dead soil of historical communism. It is not economic redistributionism alone through which “progressives” seek to both “fundamentally transform America” and otherwise conquer the world, but, rather, and perhaps primarily, it is also through victory over the pejoratively tagged “social issues” (i.e., the sanctity of marriage, natural human sexuality and morality, ending the abortion holocaust, religious liberty, the Second Amendment and the like).

This is neither speculative nor hyperbolic. Both the historical record and the U.S. Congressional Record bear out this sinister reality. Regrettably, today’s “low-information voters” as Rush Limbaugh calls them – to include the useful idiots within the GOP’s “moderate” and libertarian wings – are simply too lazy, shortsighted or both to learn the facts.

“Surrender on the ‘social issues’!” demands the GOP’s cultural Marxist-enabling kamikazes.

In 1963, U.S. Rep. A.S. Herlong Jr., D-Fla., read into the Congressional Record a list of “Current Communist Goals” as enumerated by Dr. Cleon Skousen in “The Naked Communist,” penned in 1958. I encourage you to read the whole list, but for now let’s focus on those goals that most closely align with the seditious agenda of America’s “progressive” movement. It’s actually most of them. Though Herlong was a Democrat, the list reads like today’s Democratic Party Platform.

How far has fallen the party of the jackass:

  • Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  • Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist [or, today, Islamic] affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  • Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist [or Islamic] domination.
  • Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
  • Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
  • Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  • Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  • Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  • Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  • Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  • Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  • Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  • Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. (An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”)
  • Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
  • Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  • Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
  • Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
  • Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principal of “separation of church and state.”
  • Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  • Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
  • Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”
  • Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  • Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  • Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  • Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
  • Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  • Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  • Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
  • Internationalize the Panama Canal.
  • Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

If achieving these specific communist goals was the final “progressive” step toward the larger goal of securing communist governance in America, then, tragically, “progressives” have realized that larger goal.

Look around. We are no longer the United States of America. We have become The Communist States of America.

Which means, for those who love liberty, revolution is once again at hand.
