We Tried To Warn You: ObamaCare Is A Trojan Horse To Implementing Universal Government-Run & Rationed Healthcare.

TrojanDonkey

Confirmation that the mainstream Obama Media knew all along that ObamaCare was designed to collapse the existing health system, so a total government-run system can be imposed.

The thing about the MarxoFascist allies of Obama is that they are dropping the masks and pretenses to hide their real agenda, and coming right out and stating that ObamaCare is simply the first step towards total government-run and mandated healthcare imposed on every American except the Ruling Class.

But this is not news to anyone that was paying attention.  Obama and his lackeys boldly told their followers years ago that ObamaCare was only first step towards “single payer” (total governemnt-run and administered) healthcare.  Obama himself stated emphatically in 2003 that he was a “proponent of single payer universal healthcare” to Union thugs whom he was pandering for his future run to the White House.

Since then, MarxoFascist leaders like Reid and Pelosi have stated that ObamaCare was just a step to Single Payer, because they assert that Single Payer should have been done to begin with:

The fact of the matter is that ObamaCare was DESIGNED to fail.  It was simply a mechanism to destroy the entire private health insurance market, give government power and control where it had no control – and set the conditions for the public to accept the imposition of Soviet-style healthcare for everyone except the Ruling Classes.

Why, yes, ObamaCare is a trojan horse for single-payer

…it’s a strange defense of ObamaCare to say that it’s just “threadbare” and crappy enough to build a consensus for throwing the whole thing out, but it’s perfectly in keeping with the trojan-horse approach. They want the law to fail — not so suddenly and horribly that the industry melts down and frightens the public away from ambitious new federal “fixes” but slowly and incrementally so that people don’t lose all faith in federal management of this sector. I’m old enough to remember when it was a sign of utmost wingnuttery to suggest that ObamaCare was but phase one in a government takeover of health care, but three years later, now that the law’s momentarily out of political danger, we’ve got HHS ordering insurance companies every other week to change their business practices willy nilly and lefty pundits babbling excitedly about how this is all really just a stepping stone to bigger and better statist interventions. (Some liberals will object that the wingnuttery lies in believing that liberals designed the law to fail. Fair enough — although Scheiber’s own language is revealing, describing O-Care at one point as “a deceptively sneaky way” to get single-payer and saying of GOP efforts to play up the law’s problems that “Republicans are in some sense playing into the trap Obamacare laid for them.”) This, not “if you like your plan,” is the real Big Lie of O-Care. This is where we’re at we’re six days into full implementation.

Obamacare Actually Paves the Way Toward Single Payer

One Step Away From Armed Revolution, Collapse And Fragmentation

Marxist-victory

America’s Ruling Class has become an entity unto itself – separating The People from itself; voiding the Constitution and preparing for war against the people they plan to subjugate.

“There is now a sharp division between the bipartisan ruling class and the rest of the American populace, who are considered retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly controlled by the dictates of central authority.”

America is being pushed into a conflagration by it’s own wayward government.   A plan long in the works is in the final stages of fruition.  A plan that will solidify MarxoFascist rule over the remnant of this people, and handing the nation over it’s enemies after opening it’s borders wide for invasion.

Genocides are a hallmark of every single Leftist totalitarian regime ever to come to power in the world, and they are always done under the color of law.  A mark of the federal beast has been established in the shoving of ObamaCare down our throats; for without thinking and acting exactly as the MarxoFascists Bureaucrats who will run your healthcare demand – you will not receive any healthcare.  There is talk that Doctors will be forced by law to take any patient the government tells them to.  Notwithstanding the courts telling private businesses that they must suspend their 1st Amendment protected religious beliefs and subjugate themselves to supporting practices they consider to be mortal sin and abomination (abortion, contraception and homosexual marriages).  In fact a court just told a bakery owned by devout Christians that they must bake wedding cakes for homosexuals or face prison.

The divide between government and the people whom the Ruling Class is determined to subjugate is greater than at any time in our history.  History teaches what happens when a society reaches this point.  And it’s a point we are being deliberately pushed into.  The Ruling Class are preparing themselves to put down the people by force – ammunition, APCs, tanks and drones are being stockpiled for domestic use while the military is being purged of leaders and those who will not abide the ‘fundamental transformation’ Obama has set the nation on.

DHS ArmingFor War

The American Thinker’s Lawrence Sellin provides one of the most excellent analysis of what I think is about to come down upon us all in very short order.  And I believe this is EXACTLY what the Ruling Class in government WANT  - because it is the only way they can have the justification to do what they intend to do under the color of ‘law’ and ‘emergency’.

A Government Separated from the People Cannot Stand

Three-Percent-Patriots

In his 1952 book The Origins of Totalitarian Democracy, Israeli historian J. L. Talmon described a political system in which lawfully elected representatives rule a nation state whose citizens, although granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of government.

The federal government has become such a system, an entity unto itself operating outside of Constitutional constraints and unaccountable to the American people.

The United States is now controlled by a Democratic and Republican ruling class that transcends government and sees itself as distinct from the rest of society and as the only element that may act on its behalf.The ruling class considers those who resist it as having no moral or intellectual right, and, only reluctantly, any civil right to do so.

Power rests, not with the citizens, but with a relatively small group of politicians and financiers, who enhance their personal wealth and privilege by looting the country through a self-serving legislative process. They maintain their authority by adjusting the levers of government and using the establishment media to manipulate public perception and opinion.

Barack Obama, a coffeehouse communist, leads a dishonest and lawless cabal of far-left ideologues, whose goal is to promote socialist policies that can only be implemented at the expense of personal liberty.

Republican leaders neither contest that view nor oppose their Democrat counterparts because they do not want to challenge the ruling class, they want to join it. The GOP leadership has gradually solidified its choice to no longer represent what had been its constituency, but to adopt the identity of junior partners in the ruling class.

There is now a sharp division between the bipartisan ruling class and the rest of the American populace, who are considered retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly controlled by the dictates of central authority.

When blatant and outrageous lies are no longer sufficient to soothe the electorate into complacency, such a government must begin to curtail freedom and oppress the people in order to remain in power.

The present political environment, that is, the separation between the rulers and the ruled, bears comparison to the events leading up to the American Revolution.

On January 10, 1776, nearly six months before the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Paine published the forty-eight page pamphlet Common Sense, which openly presented arguments supporting the freedom of the American colonies from oppressive British rule.

According to Paine, a society arises because individuals living alone in nature find shared benefit by living together rather than remaining isolated. In an ideal society, where each individual acts in a morally just fashion toward every other individual in the society, there is no need for laws and government. Only when moral virtue is inadequate to restrain human evil, do laws become necessary; and only when a society becomes too large to operate by collective agreement and as individual enforcers of those laws do governments become necessary.

In such circumstances, the balance between society and government will determine the balance between individual liberty and functionality of the society. In complex societies, in the absence of laws and government, chaos will prevail. When laws become too numerous and government too large, individual liberty suffers.

The efficiency and effectiveness of government are directly dependent upon the trustworthiness of government officials as representatives and executors of the views and desires of the people.

In other words, whenever the interests of government officials divert from or are in conflict with those of the people, tyranny ensues.

The attributes that best describe how America is now governed are executive overreach, legislative complicity, judicial partisanship, and journalistic acquiescence.

The erosion of the Constitution and the theft of our Constitutional rights have been occurring incrementally and quietly over a long period of time. With the election of Barack Obama in 2008, those efforts have accelerated.

In contrast to what Thomas Paine wrote in The Rights of Man (1791), the Obama “utopian” model sees individual rights as privileges, not endowed by God, but granted via political charter, and, thereby, legally revocable to ensure the “good order” of society. It is a collectivist philosophy that directly conflicts with the principles outlined in the Constitution, where government is a construct of and accountable to its citizens, as Paine noted:

“The fact, therefore, must be that the individuals, themselves, each, in his own personal and sovereign right, entered into a contract with each other to produce a government: and this is the only mode in which governments have a right to arise, and the only principle on which they have a right to exist.”

The Obama nightmare could be ended at any time simply by telling the truth.

To do so, however, would expose the rampant corruption of our political and media elite, reveal their complicity in Obama’s violations of Constitution, uncover their willful ignorance of his alleged felonies and confirm their participation in the greatest election fraud and Constitutional crisis in American history.

Both the Democrat and Republican parties know that exposing Obama would reveal their dereliction of duty, their complicity in undermining the Constitution, and their continuous flouting of the rule of law. They know that the truth would topple the corrupt status quo and terminate their exclusive grip on political power, allowing the American people to regain control of their government. The political and media elite will do anything to prevent that.

The status quo is no longer defensible. Unless there is a significant reversal soon, it is only a matter of time that a catastrophe will be upon us, which may well lead to national collapse and fragmentation.

The ruling elites of a now hopelessly corrupt political system are just one major blunder away from revolution.

We Refuse To Comply With ObamaCare. We Will Resist Tyranny.

DefyObamaCare

Most Americans oppose Obamacare by a large 70% margin.  Now a growing contingent of citizens are openly declaring their refusal to participate or comply with the demands Obamacare sets forth.

It was drafted in secret, behind closed doors.  It was sold as a freebie for the welfare class, and promised to lower everyone’s premiums.  It was promised you could keep your existing healthcare insurance and your doctors.

It was all a lie from the beginning.  ObamaCare is simply a tool and path towards a single-payer government-run and distributed healthcare system.  Obama himself said as much:

But the people were mesmerized by his skin color and his media lavished gravitas – and they did not comprehend his intent with those words.

When Obama’s signature piece of legislation was having trouble in Nancy Pelosi’s House – she asserted that they were just going to ‘deem the bill passed’ without even holding a vote.  When the vote finally came, it was done in the middle of the night, without a single Representative having read the 3,000 page monstrosity – not a single Republican voted for it.

We learned the IRS was being put in charge of enforcing ObamaCare and being given abilities most Communist regimes do not even have over their people’s bank accounts.  When the Individual Mandate was challenged in court Obama repeatedly asserted it was not a tax, but a penalty due the fact the legislation did not originate in the House and it was sold as not a tax increase.  Federal Judge Roger Vinson ruled that if the insurance mandate is a penalty, not a tax, it must be defended under the Commerce Clause and not Congress’s taxing authority.

But once it got to the Supreme Court – Obama suddenly insisted the Individual Mandate was a tax, after spending months insisting it was not a tax, but a penalty and Justice Roberts – suddenly changed his views and rewrote the law from his bench to give it  convoluted legal standing.

Since that time  Obama decided to rewrite his own law, by himself without any authority to do so, and give exemptions to his cronies and supporters from having to be subject to his law.  He then decreed that he was delaying the requirement for employers to provide mandated and classified affordable health insurance starting Jan. 1, 2014, or pay huge fines.

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) the Democrat who helped write the demonic bill himself declared that implementing Obamacare “is a huge train wreck”.

ObamaCare is worse than a disaster – it is the implementation of tyranny and the usurpation of our Rights to a government that now has the precedent to tell us what we must purchase, how much we must purchase and at what price – or face penalty. It tells private companies they must pay for risks that will eradicate their profitability.  It destroys one of the best health care system in the world.

That is tyranny – and many Americans like myself are declaring their refusal to comply with ObamaCare.

One such blogger lays it all out and declares her refusal to comply.  God bless her.   Where I am not sure she is accurate is in ascribing criminal IRS income tax penalties to violators of Obamacare. That is a very murky area at the moment. Though one has to wonder why it is Obama chose the IRS to administer compliance if it isn’t for their ability to seize bank accounts, property and levy prison time.

So Kudos to Daisy Luther.  We stand with her here.  Defy.  Refuse.  Resist.

BRING IT ON: I WILL NOT COMPLY WITH OBAMACARE

I will not comply with Obamacare.

There. I said it.

I am unequivocally not going to be complying with Obamacare.

I also won’t be purchasing health insurance at 4 times the regular price, nor will I participate in the government-funded “exchange” for “affordable” healthcare.

Now, first, let me be clear – this isn’t because I’d be paying $20,000 per year for the crappiest coverage. In reality, Obamacare and the subsidies my family is eligible for would make the cost incredibly reasonable – but that is not the point.

The point is this: I am an American, and as such, I refuse to be forced to purchase anything else. I have already been forced to have car insurance, forced to purchase annually the “privilege” of driving via a license and having a (paid-for) car on the road via a license plate, and forced to pay taxes on my income and every purchase that I make.

When I moved back home to America after living in Canada, I never expected to be subjected to government coercion on this grand scale. I will not comply. The government is fond of saying that they will not negotiate with terrorists. Well, neither will I – and the US government under the reign of Barack Obama is the biggest terrorist organization around. 

Michael Rivero of What Really Happened gives the best explanation I’ve seen for why the government is so intent that everyone must participate in this program. They have run the country into the ground and want to force us all to pay as they vainly struggle to keep things afloat. This is a last ditch effort – the only alternative is economic collapse.

Obama’s utter refusal to compromise or delay Obamacare is more than mere political grandstanding. Obama has to prove he can continue to make the payments on the government debt. Now, based on reports we are getting form people who did sign up for Obamacare, they are being offered policies that cost about $500 a month, and have a deductible in the tens of thousands. That means that for the vast majority of Americans, they will be paying $500 month for insurance that will in fact pay none of their medical costs. So, $500 a month is $6000 a year times 200 million complying Americans equals $1.2 trillion a year pouring into the Health Insurance companies as pure profit, of which the US Government gets almost $200 billion in taxes (plus the IRS fines on those who refuse to sign up). And THAT is why Obama is demanding that Obamacare move forward now, despite a totally botched computer management system and despite 71% public opposition. Absent that new cash flow, the US Government will collapse, and the one year delay proposed by the House of Representatives is far to long to survive without some new source of loot from the public. (source)

It’s clear that our non-compliance in large numbers could stop this madness. We just have to say, “No.  I will not comply.”

Why is this such a big deal?

There are numerous reasons for my planned non-compliance.

1.) People who make more money than I do should not be forced to subsidize my health care. I have no desire for a handout and this is assuredly a handout. One of my closest friends will be paying over $15,000 per year for a family of 5. With the small amount that I’d pay for my family, it is quite clear that my friend, and others like him, would be paying for us. I have always paid my own bills and don’t expect others to take up my slack. I am not a welfare case.

2.) Despite the fact that my family is apparently far before the poverty level, we don’t feel poor.We have everything we need and some of what we want. I budget carefully in order to be able to pay for things like the emergency trip to the dentist for my daughter last week. My child wears nice clothes to school, always has enough to eat and seems to feel that she has the same privileges and possessions as her friends do.

3.) This is going to delete the middle class. Once the wheels are truly in motion, there will no longer be a middle class. Everyone will be dirt poor or well-to-do. There won’t be any middle ground, as average folks watch their expenses skyrocket. Soon people will be forced to make the choice between Obamacare and food.

4.) This is just another way to make the populace dependent on the benevolence of government.Much like the push to put people on food stamps, what better way to make people dependent than to force them to accept this type of assistance? If private health insurance continues to spiral wildly, then almost no one will be able to afford health care without Obamacare.

5.) This is an assault on my medical privacy. Does the government need to know a person is depressed? If a woman skipped a mammogram that they feel is vital? That someone might have opted for an “alternative” treatment? If they have an STD? If they have a sexual dysfunction? NO. It directly violates the doctor-patient privilege. Furthermore, data has already been leaked and the system isn’t even live yet – all sorts of non-medical-professionals will have access to my personal information, both medical and financial.

6.) I’m not having my family’s health care decisions made by other people. What happens when I refuse to vaccinate my children? Right now, that is my choice, but when someone else is paying for it, will I still have the option to say no? I always opt for the least chemical, least invasive treatments possible, but when someone else pulls the strings will that still be an option? If I refuse treatment will they refuse payment? Will I no longer be allowed to leave my home during flu season if I don’t get the flu shot?

What are the ramifications of non-compliance?

Please read the rest at her blog.

Mark Of A Beast: Government Tells Church Charity ‘No Food’ Unless They Dump, Prayers, Bibles and Jesus

No-Christians,-No-Missionaries

Officials says a church charity will not be allowed to receive any USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read “Jesus is Lord” and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.

The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. - 

Revelation 13:15-17

The more lukewarm and immoral we become as a nation – the more the government will force Christians to surrender and abandon their faith if they want to conduct business earn a living or feed themselves.  For now, they attack charity, because charity often requires government oversight.  But it will move on from there.
Separating the country from God is the agenda because empowering and worship of the State is the god of the Secularists and the Left.

USDA Tells Christian Charity To Kick Jesus To The Curb

By Todd Starnes

Todd’s American Dispatch

A Florida ministry that feeds the poor said a state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read “Jesus is Lord” and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.

“They told us they could no longer allow us to have any religious information where the USDA food is going to be,” said Kay Daly, executive director of the Christian Service Center.

So why did the government have an issue with the religious group’s religious decorations?
A spokesperson for the Florida Department of Agriculture told me they were following the guidelines written by the USDA.

“This program is a USDA-funded program and the requirements were outlined by the USDA,” spokesperson Amanda Bevis said. “This agency administers the program on the state level. Our staff did provide a briefing to CSC following turnover in leadership at CSC and did review the USDA requirements.”

Daly said they were told it was a matter of separation of church and state.
A USDA spokesperson told me that “under current law, organizations that receive USDA nutrition assistance can still engage in religious activities so long as the activity is not used to create a barrier to eligible individuals receiving food.”

The USDA referred to an Executive Order providing equal protection for faith-based organizations. That order guarantees those groups the right to provide assistance without “removing or altering religious art, icons, scriptures or other symbols from these facilities.”

For the past 31 years, the Christian ministry has been providing food to the hungry in Lake City, Fla. without any problems. But all that changed when they said a state government worker showed up to negotiate a new contract.

“The (person) told us there was a slight change in the contract,” Daly told me. “They said we could no longer have religious information where the USDA food is being distributed. They told us we had to take that stuff down.”

Daly said it’s no secret that the Christian Service Center is a Christian ministry.

“We’ve got pictures of Christ on more than one wall,” she said. “It’s very clear we are not social services. We are a Christian ministry.”

Daly and her staff sat in stunned disbelief as the government agents also informed them that the Christian Service Center could no longer pray or provide Bibles to those in need. The government contract also forbade any references to the ministry’s chapel.

“We asked if we had to change the name of the organization but that said we could leave that,” Daly said. “But we had to take our religious stuff down.”

Daly said they were told they could continue distributing USDA food so long as it was somewhere else on the property – away from anything that could be considered religious.

In other words – the Christian Service Center had a choice: choose God or the government cheese.

So in a spirit of Christian love and fellowship, Daly politely told the government what they could do with their cheese.

“We decided to eliminate the USDA food and we’re going to trust God to provide,” she told me. “If God can multiply fish and loaves for 10,000 people, he can certainly bring in food for our food pantry so we can continue to feed the hungry.”

In a nutshell, Daly said the Christian Service Center would not be compromising.

“We are a Christian ministry,” she said. “Our purpose is to help people in need and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are going to pray with them. We are going to offer them a Bible. We are going to counsel them in Christian help. We are going to use our chapel.”

Churches across Lake City have stepped up to the challenge – filling the void left when the government took away their cheese.

“I’m called to do what the Lord tells me to do,” Daly said. “I’m not called to worry about it. I pray about it. The Lord answers our prayers and we move forward one day at a time, one person at a time.”

Obama’s HUD Policy: Dismantle Suburbs By Forcing Minorities Into ‘Prosperous’ Neighborhoods

suburbanliquidation

Prosperous Suburbs are now ‘racist’ and in the name of Diversity – Obama plans on identifying every neighborhood in America by race-population and ‘rectifying’  “geospatial discrimination’.

Think you own your property and have private rights?  Think again.

If you live in a predominantly White and /or prosperous suburb – the Obama regime says you are racist and discriminating against inner city blacks.  Obama plans on addressing “geospatial discrimination’ of minorities by ‘mapping’ every neighborhood in America in regards to it’s racial make-up and financial strength.  Then, HUD will impose new rules that will go out to suburbs that are not racially diverse and demand “affirmatively further fair housing” in the suburbs for minorities. Grantees who fail to comply will be denied federal funding.

The Kelo decision on Eminent Domain gives the government the precedent to seize your house and property as they see fit for such social experimentation if taxation can be shown to be an economic benefit.   The notorious 2005 ruling in Kelo v. City of New London, upheld the use of eminent domain to transfer property from one private owner to another for the sake of economic development.  What that means, is that using the precedent set by SCOTUS, Obama can use Eminent Domain to transfer your property to his inner city constituents for the sake of ‘economic development’.

Then there is the massive amount of foreclosed properties that the Federal Government has jurisdiction over with Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae.  Some astute folks in Real Estate have warned us of this portent.  The foreclosure market of those properties off the books or ones that are not being foreclosed, belong to the Feds.   It will take nothing but an order from Obama to have his welfare cretins move into the foreclosed home next to yours. Even in rural areas.   Imagine thousands of inner city ghetto scum of a bankrupt area moving on in next door to you.  A bigger redistribution than Section 8 ever hoped to be.

Its coming and they have the will and the legal means to do it. Freddy and Fannie own over 73% of all defaulted loans in the Nation.  This statement by Donovan merely announces this soon-to-be reality.

He outlined the Obama Plan at a speech at the NAACP convention last weekend.

Donovan vowed to help urban blacks relocate to suburban neighborhoods, where they can have access to “good schools, safe streets, jobs, grocery stores,” among other things. He claimed suburban realtors and landlords still discriminate against blacks.

“African-Americans,” Donovan said, “are being denied their freedom of choice.” 

He said the HUD database will detail by neighborhood what “access African-American families have to community assets — including jobs, schools and transit,” which he added “is something the NAACP has long called for.”

Once the data are collected, his diversity police will use it as a “tool” to ensure that “every American has the opportunity to live in the community of their choice without facing discrimination.”

Marxists are known for forced relocation of populations to serve the needs of the dictatorial state.  In fact, Karl Marx made such ‘redistribution of property’ one of the bulwarks of his Communist Manifesto.  Sadly, America still is fast asleep, having no clue whatsoever, what is about to happen to most of them.

Nazis March Jews out of homes

Same exact crap – different century.

HUD Launches Scheme To Racially Diversify Suburbs

Now even ZIP codes are racist, and according to this race-obsessed administration, you’re racist for living in a suburban area with little public housing. And it plans to change that.

In what may be the most ambitious social-engineering project undertaken by the federal government, the administration is mapping every neighborhood in America by race. The stated purpose is to use the data to compel local officials to loosen zoning laws and build more public housing, thereby offering more poor inner-city minorities better opportunities for housing and education.

But the unstated purpose is forced racial integration. The suburbs are just too white for Obama and his race-mongering social engineers. They think they “geospatially discriminate” against minorities, never mind that more and more middle-class blacks are flocking to them on their own.

The ham-handed government project is led by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Last week it proposed new rules requiring counties and other entities receiving federal grant dollars to “affirmatively further fair housing” in the suburbs for minorities. Grantees who fail to comply will be denied federal funding.

At the same time, HUD is pressuring suburban landlords to accept Section 8 housing vouchers.

The proposed regulation was issued just days after HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan addressed the NAACP at its annual convention in Florida, near the Orlando suburb where a neighborhood crime-watch captain fatally shot a black teen visiting the complex.

In his speech, Donovan vowed to help urban blacks relocate to suburban neighborhoods, where they can have access to “good schools, safe streets, jobs, grocery stores,” among other things. He claimed suburban realtors and landlords still discriminate against blacks.

“African-Americans,” Donovan said, “are being denied their freedom of choice.”

He said the HUD database will detail by neighborhood what “access African-American families have to community assets — including jobs, schools and transit,” which he added “is something the NAACP has long called for.”

Once the data are collected, his diversity police will use it as a “tool” to ensure that “every American has the opportunity to live in the community of their choice without facing discrimination.”

Earlier this year, HUD broadened the authority of two anti-discrimination laws — the Fair Housing Act and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act — making illegal any housing or credit policy that results in disproportionately fewer blacks or Latinos receiving housing or home loans than whites, even if those policies are race-neutral and evenly applied across all groups.

Meanwhile, HUD is working with an army of new diversity cops at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to map the credit histories of every American by race to ensure credit reports and scores are racially balanced as well.

If there are racial disparities in housing or credit, there can’t be any business reason for them. Personal habits are never a factor. To this administration, racism is the one and only explanation. Anywhere gaps exist. All the time.

Donovan promised the NAACP he’ll “put an end to these disparities.” His scheme to map “racist” suburbs for targeting by diversity cops is just the first step toward mass relocation of inner-city poverty and crime to the suburbs, a key tenet of radical icon and Barack Obama mentor Saul Alinsky organizing under the banner of ending “spatial segregation” and “suburban apartheid.”

This project could degrade the lifestyles of tens of millions of Americans — including hard-working middle-class minorities — who moved to the suburbs to get away from crime and bad schools.

It’s time Republican leaders in Congress train their sights on the race-mongering zealots running amok at HUD.

HUD’s New ‘Fair Housing’ Rule Establishes Diversity Data for Every Neighborhood in U.S.

(CNSNews.com) – To ensure that “every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of,” HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.

The goal is to help communities understand “fair housing barriers” and “establish clear goals” for “improving integrated living patterns and overcoming historic patterns of segregation.”

“This proposed rule represents a 21st century approach to fair housing, a step forward to ensuring that every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of – where they have a fair shot at reaching their full potential in life,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

“For the first time ever,” Donovan added, “HUD will provide data for every neighborhood in the country, detailing the access African American, Latino, Asian, and other communities have to local assets, including schools, jobs, transportation, and other important neighborhood resources that can play a role in helping people move into the middle class.”

America’s End

IslamDominatesUSA

The domestic foundation for tyranny is laid.  The Obama-sponsored upheaval in the Middle East may become the trigger the Ruling Class will use to bring what is left of our liberties to an end.

All I can say to this excellent essay by John is AMEN and THANK YOU!

We best be mindful – though I am reticent about setting dates and timeframes.  It is enough to see the inevitable of what John is warning us about.

The Last 90 days of the USA

by John Galt
July 5, 2013 09:15 ET

237 years after its birth, the United States of America may cease to exist as we know it within the next 90 days. The American people have become lazy, slothful, and intellectually dishonest to the point where accepting the government’s decrees which impinge on their freedoms is the accepted rule of thumb rather than fighting to defend their freedoms. Unless a drastic change occurs soon, the end of the Republic will happen much faster than imagined.

Sadly, the United States and much of our population have not only forsaken the hard fought freedoms won by our Founding Fathers, they have turned their back on God so as to insure the wisdom and guidance needed to not only maintain moral leadership but to prevent the very usurpation of our freedoms that the Founders warned us about. Yet we continue to ignore those warnings, continue to minimize and distort their role in history, and rewrite the definitions of the Bill of Rights using a corrupted judicial system at every level for cover. As usual, the American people are totally enamored with their 1000 cable channels, Xbox, iWhatever, and prescription medications to sedate their rage and insulate them from caring. It is within the recent difficult economic and political times of this era that few have taken a moment to realize the dangers of forsaking divine guidance and elevating the celebration of sin. Whenever a society rejects its past and moral construct the price is usually the survival of that nation’s very existence as demonstrated throughout history.

The economic problems which are lurking in the background and ignored by the media elites will be the underlying and undeclared cause of this upcoming collapse. With a larger portion of the American population aging rapidly and becoming more dependent on a manipulated market to ensure their financial survival, the opportunity to change the system is too tempting for the elites. Consider the damage done in the 2007-2009 collapse; retirees were forced off retirement and back into the work force, private property was seized without due process (bonds/equities), and criminal activity conducted by government sponsored and regulated enterprises was condoned or ignored on a wide scale. If one could return to the cookie jar and this time steal the entire jar, what makes anyone think that the banksters in coordination with the politicians will not complete the job they started?

Odds are the next market “correction” will eventually lead to a full blown crash due to the Ponzi scheme nature of our markets and the crass ignorance that Capitalism actually requires the creation of capital along with the freedoms now no longer guaranteed despite the existence of our Constitution. When the markets collapse this time, retirees will be sustained only with the seizure of their retirement accounts and investments for redistribution at a lower valuation. This seizure will initially upset the nation but in the end will be accepted, as all illegal government actions, as the necessary price to be paid for everyone to survive. From that point forward all economic benefits be they wages, profits, investments, and even necessities like food will be determined using a formula controlled by the ruling class not individual initiative.

Meanwhile, as the economy implodes watch for the global political establishment to reset with America’s influenced reduced to a small number of nations as we become the equivalent of  the USSR in the 1960′s; which was hated by many, many nations and peoples of the world. The policies of the last two Presidents which support insurrection and revolution where none was brewing by using our intelligence services in addition to undeclared, unconstitutional wars has created a worldview that our country is out of control. As the NSA leak became visible to the masses of the US population the willingness to explore other ongoing violations of our Constitutional rights is nil. The soon to be sheared citizenry has ignored gross violations of eminent domain abuse, illegal searches and seizures of physical property and persons, and interference between two parties (or more) to engage in legal lawful contractual agreements. The 1st Amendment might as well be dead with the government influencing the news in preparation for a seizure of total control of all broadcast and communications outlets under the guise of a national emergency. Without any push to save those rights, Americans will soon lose all of them. In the eyes of other coutnries, we are a nation lead by an almost Fascistic regime which adores its own power and wishes to impose the same designs on other countries as they have on our own.

The geopolitical situation we have created as a nation shall now come home to roost as Egypt and Syria flare up into a conflagration which might well start the most disastrous world war in history while leaving quasi-superpowers like China and Russia on the sidelines acting as merchants to the combatants. The United States has demonstrated that the current leadership, just like the prior administration, fails to comprehend the desires of the citizens in the region to exist peacefully and instead profits from the conflicts created by anti-Israel and anti-Christian groups which we continue to fund, finance, and arm. As the nations of the world realize that a friendship with the U.S. means a sacrifice of domestic economic and political freedom, they will shun us like the dictatorial leper we have become. Our regime in turn will declare those nations pariahs and seek revenge to seize control by using either our intelligence services or overt military action. The consequences of a conflict this time will spread to our shores, as if by design, and that is the trigger event necessary to complete the original plan to change our nation forever.

I pray that this is not it. I pray that we never hear the declaration of a national emergency and suspension of Constitutional rights via the media. I pray that our nation is not so stupid so as to engage in another foolish Middle East conflict which spreads to our shores. Sadly, every indication appears to be to the contrary. Within the next ninety days there is great potential for those that wish to accelerate their plans for a revised American system which parallels but exceeds the state controlled Capitalism of Communist China will will be imposed upon us. The political elites currently in power are too tempted by their own visions of glory and the financial elites are ready to make their play for total systemic control without the restrictions of our Constitution and individual rights.

Barring a miracle from God almighty, I fear that they will succeed.

Can We Awaken From This MarxoFascist Totalitarian Nightmare?

Tyranny's-March

A prophetic but chilling warning about how America is repeating the history of past Republics by accepting and preferring  a totalitarian form of government.

“…Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and … accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. ” The Declaration of Independence.

Many Americans are awakening to a reality that the country they once knew is gone, replaced by a “Progressive” Marxist/Socialist Oligarchy.  The past week reveal that the Obama regime has used the government’s agencies to wage war on Americans, silence Christians and Conservative groups, spy on the media and private citizens, harass citizens who attempt to involve themselves in politics, and punish political opposition to the ‘fundamental transformation’ Obama is imposing on the country.

Ambassador Alan Keyes asks a question this author has been asking since 2008 – can this country awaken itself from it’s stupor?  Can this nightmare of a totalitarian Marxist state be stopped? Or are we too late and comfortable with it already??

Methinks it’s the latter.  A majority clearly prefer tyranny to liberty, and yet they will call it freedom.

Totalitarian Subversion- Can we Awaken from the Nightmare?

Whatever Obama, Hilary Clinton, Susan Rice and other Obama faction officials were seeking to achieve with their lies about the terrorist murders of U.S. officials in Benghazi; whatever the full extent of the ideologically motivated political abuses at the IRS, one thing is clear. Except for mindless apparatchiks, thoughtlessly loyal to the Obama cult, (like Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton, for example) no sane person can now consider it crazy or irrational to distrust the words and actions of those presently controlling the U.S. government. These scandals show the self-serving ‘chutzpah’ of Obama’s snide dismissal of people who “warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems….They’ll warn that tyranny [is] always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices.”

In one respect, Obama’s words ring true. Tyranny isn’t just around the corner. It is already upon us. Its forces are not yet confident enough to employ the ‘Gestapo’ tactics routinely associated with socialist dictatorship. But they have obviously been using their control of the Federal bureaucracy to repress and intimidate individuals and grassroots organizations, preoccupying their time and depleting their resources. Should we be encouraged by the fact that these abuses are now being openly discussed and decried? Only if the stir actually leads to actions that effectively curtail them, while establishing am oversight mechanism that assures continually formal and public scrutiny, to make sure that they cannot be repeated without an immediate outcry.

But what if no such action is taken? Inaction is likely, given the collaborative mindset of the GOP leaders in the U.S. House, and the Obama faction’s solid majority in the U.S. Senate. If it happens these abuses will recur in a more virulent form. And they will spread, like an infection treated with an inadequate course of antibiotics. People will realize that the abuses are still in train, and that their elected officials have done nothing to reduce each individual’s vulnerability. Increasingly tinged with fear, the angry public reaction against the abuses will wane. Spreading from one individual to another, as episodes of abuse proliferate, this individual fear will gradually intensify until it dominates the public mind. This is the way tyranny subverts peace of mind.

Is this part of the reason the Obama faction volunteered these revelations? Is it part of the reason elements of the elitist faction are so willing to air this dirty laundry? If no effective controls are put in place, the result could generate a corrosive atmosphere of fearful expectation, that predisposes people to forestall abuse by submitting to those responsible for it. Was it from wise precaution against this corrosion of the spirit of liberty that, unlike Barack Obama, America’s founders saw it as ”…proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties”; and went on to praise the “free men of America” who “did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise…They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle.” (James Madison, Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments)

Barack Obama is a man whose ruthless ideological consistency leads him to disdain the natural rightness of human life, in its most affecting and helpless form. For example, his advocacy of unconstrained access to abortion is so extreme that he countenanced infanticide in order to assure it. He understood and frankly accepted that this ruthless position was a necessary consequence of the logic that justifies so-called “abortion rights”. The heartily soul destroying effect of his logical extremism was recently revealed at trial, in the jocular morbidity of Kermit Gosnell, who now stands convicted of such murders.

Given his calculated fanaticism, Obama is just the type to deploy the heartless bureaucratic, police and military forces of government against citizens whose only crime is to exercise the rights that are their birthright, under God and the Constitution. Today public attention focuses on the IRS, abused to attack the resources and curtail the political activity of those who oppose the design for despotism. Soon and very soon it will be the IRS and the police, abused to attack free speech and the free exercise of religion. Then it will be Homeland security and local police forces, under the guise of anti-terrorist martial law, abused to arrest and detain evangelical Christians, Catholics, homeschoolers, and those who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. Then it will be OBama’s fondly imagined domestic army, as large and well-funded as the military, moving against States whose officials who refuse to acquiesce in the unconstitutional abridgment of the residual sovereign rights guaranteed to the States, respectively, and to the people, by the U.S. Constitution’s 10th Amendment.

Please don’t make the mistake of believing that this design for despotism is exclusively the sinister ambition of Democrats like Obama. For years I tried to warn people in the GOP about Obama’s commitment to totalitarian communist approaches to politics and economics. For years I tried to help them recognize his rejection of the principles whereby the requirements of God-endowed right limit the just powers of government. For years I inveighed against his pro-abortion extremism; his disdain for the God-endowed rights of the natural family; his hostility to America’s international and national security requirements.

I gradually came to realize that the leadership of the Republican Party is incapable of responding effectively to Obama’s treacherous betrayal of constitutional self-government, or even admitting it. Why? Because that leadership is itself in the grip of forces that differ from Obama only in the more openly self-serving style of their betrayal. They purport to represent and speak for the large plurality of Americans loyal to the Constitution. They pretend to respect the ideas of God-endowed unalienable rights and limited government from which the Constitution derives. But they have in fact abandoned every goal of political life except the successful pursuit of governmental power, and the self-aggrandizing abuses it makes possible.

In the WND article published on Friday I argued that, because the IRS “overturns the priority of natural right over humanly instituted authority”, it is a design woven into the fabric of tyranny. In similar fashion, because it has substituted power for justice as the end of civil society, the elitist faction’s sham two-party system is also a design woven into the fabric of tyranny. When America’s founders framed our form of government, they did so with justice in view (see Federalist #51). Institutions like the IRS and the elitist faction’s sham two-party system are like viruses. Though written in the language the founders used, they have been introduced into the program of American government in order to rewrite its code for a different purpose. They exist, as it were, to reweave the whole cloth of American life. They are part of a phalanx of similarly viral mechanisms, including now the public schools, and much of the news and entertainment media, that have been transformed from factors of liberty into engines of elitist totalitarian indoctrination and control.

This is, in the tactical sense, the realization of the Antonio Gramsci’s comprehensive vision of totalitarian, socialist, political subversion. We can awaken from it, as from a stifling nightmare, but only if we are willing to exert our minds to see all its fabrications for what they are. Only then will we cease to be manipulated and subdued by the delusory hopes and fears they represent.

This Is What Tyranny Looks Like

Obama1984_IRS

If you are Christian and Conservative, expect your health care to be denied.  The MarxoFascist at the center of the IRS Scandal is promoted to head ObamaCare eligibility at the IRS.

I cannot keep up with all the scandals breaking in the past week, and I have been cautious to wonder how they would play out.  While any one of them would have brought impeachment charges against any Republican President sitting in office, I firmly believe now NONE of this is going to damage Obama or anyone in a Cabinet leadership position.  This is full-blown tyranny at this point, and the Obama regime considers itself invincible.

Do not be deceived into thinking the media has turned on Obama – this was a calculated release of scandal, perhaps related to getting Benghazi out of people’s minds, or so overwhelm them with scandalous news that the average American simply stops paying attention because of the overload (an Alinsky tactic).  The media will benefit from this past week’s ‘outrage’ over Obama’s misuse of the DOJ, DHS and FBI to acquire phone numbers and logs of reporters – because now they will tell us that they did their job investigating Obama, and are not biased in his favor.

What we are experiencing is what all Banana Republic dictatorships in the third world experience.  In fact during this past week’s Capitol Hill testimony, Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX)  asked Acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller, “Is this still America?  The question was one of incredulity in the face of the fact that the Obama government is so drunk on power, that it has turned its full force, its full might to harass and intimidate and threaten average Americans “who only wants her voice and their voices heard”.

This is what tyranny looks like folks.  Yet Obama just last week said to our kids that they should reject the voices of those warning about HIS tyranny.

Obama is saying that America needs to reject anyone pointing out government tyranny, yet tyranny is exactly what he is engaging in against the American people.

This Is What Tyranny Looks Like

SarahHallIngram

Here is a woman we will need to learn much more about in the coming weeks. Sarah Hall Ingram is a highly valued employee at the IRS. In the last three years she has received $103,390 in bonuses for her excellent work. She was the Commissioner of the Tax-Exempt and Government Entitles Division. Under her leadership, groups that expressed a fear of large, out-of-control government were systematically crushed by her branch of our large, out-of-control government. They were specifically singled out for harassment for political reasons. Secret information about the conservative applicants was leaked to leftist opposition groups to facilitate further harassment.

This was an organized political operation using State power to silence opposition voices. It is part of every tyrant’s playbook. It tells you everything you need to know about the current state of our country to see that those who favor a limited government, the explicit goal of our founding documents, are now considered enemies of the State.

In a 2009 speech, Ms. Ingram explained her approach:

As a practical matter, we cannot subject every application for tax-exempt status to a painstaking, leave-no-rock-unturned review. Nor can we audit every organization’s 990 every year. Nor would you want us to do so, right? To govern is to choose, and we must choose appropriately which applications or 990s to focus most attention on.

It is clear now that by “choose appropriately”, she meant to harass the limited-government groups endlessly and let liberal and Islamic groups sail right through the approval process.

The good news is that this woman is no longer in charge of that department. The bad news is that she has been promoted and is now the head of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office. She and her comrades could have access to all your medical records. They will “choose appropriately” who has trouble with the state-controlled medical system and who sails right through. They will decide if it is appropriate to share your medical history with others.

But don’t worry. I heard the outgoing IRS Commissioner say in Friday’s congressional hearings that he has reviewed the situation and found that there was “no partisanship” in the years-long practice of singling out conservative groups for IRS harassment. None at all. There is just no reason to think that specifically targeting one side of the political spectrum had anything to do with politics.

And when Commissioner Steven Miller was asked why conservative groups were targeted for prolonged scrutiny, he said that it just happened because people were trying to be efficient. Sure. Months and months of delays with endless demands for more paperwork is the efficient way to go.

Miller was forced to admit that secret information gathered from certain conservative groups was passed along by the IRS to their leftwing political opposition. So the IRS illegally gathered information and illegally passed it along for political reasons. Mr. Miller said that these actions were “inadvertent”.

There is more evidence of direct lies from IRS officials in Kevin Williamson’s column, “The Nine Lies of Lois Lerner“. One thing we learn from Williamson’s article is that the current campaign by some officials to act surprised and disappointed by the news of IRS criminality is just a scam to deflect their own culpability. Everyone knew the Inspector General’s report on the IRS was about to be released. The IRS needed to jump ahead of the report and act concerned. They were not concerned for years prior to being caught.

The Church’s Failed Influence Of Maintaining American Culture

abandoned-church

Christian freedom is fading in America, and soon the faith itself will be shoved underground by an oppressive government where only the doctrines of the state are allowed to be preached.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams

” Where there is no religion, there is no morality…With the loss of religion…the ultimate foundation of confidence is blown up; and of life, liberty and property are buried in ruins” – Timothy Dwight

I’ve been crying aloud the warning for years that the church in America was losing it’s salt and influence in maintaining our culture.  Sadly, when speaking about this topic at myriad churches and public rallies and events – the vast majority of Christians are disinterested.  In counties where the Ten Commandments were threatened to be removed, asking pastors of hundreds of churches to come and lead the community in prayer were met with silence and indifference.  Some did not want to “rock the boat” by appearing to be ‘political’.   In one county alone, after contacting over 100 Christian churches – only 1 pastor came.  That should have been my wake up call that the Christian church in America was fading into irrelevance.  For if those that pay their Savior lip service each week would not stand on the bedrock of His Word as the foundation of our civil society – why should I expect the church to stand against state-imposed homosexual marriage and homosexual doctrine being forced upon society?

As it is – the greater Christian church itself sat in decades of ridiculous prosperity and riches while the nation practiced infanticide, killing hundreds of MILLIONS of babies murdered in the womb.  An entire generation of Americans murdered in the most precious and safest place that God ordained, simply for the sake of convenience for a hedonistic people to have illicit sex without consequences.  The churches by and large?  They hear, see and speak no evil against the evil being practiced in their midst.

Are Christians become as biblically illiterate and ignorant as the secular hedonists?  Do we think we will not be held to account for losing this gift of liberty and allowing such evil to go unchallenged? Do Christians now believe their is no judgment for their indifference and apathy?

I believe that it is the tiny remnant of Christians that have not turned their heads and have stood in the gap, that God has not judged the nation prevented it to suffer in collapse and ruin by the heinous weight of it’s national sins.  But scripture is clear – at some point the cup of iniquity overflows, and even God’s anointed would suffer along with a nation of people that were called by His Name – that refused to repent and do those things that God expected His people to be doing in the first place.

When reading a majority of the Founders, they understood that the civil society and liberty itself could only exist if the whole people were a moral and upright people who were self governed by God.  In modern parlance, Christians were intended to be the Jedi Knights of safeguarding the Republic by maintaining watch over the culture and keeping it on the straight and narrow path.  As the church’s influence faded – so too did your liberty and freedom.

And the church itself doesn’t seem to mind – as long as their collection plates keep getting filled and their II Timothy 3 generation of members are entertained with the smooth and easy things their itching ears want to hear.

The American Thinker has nailed the issue of the fading influence of the church in America.

The Church’s Fading Influence on American Culture

By Simon de Hundehutte

It seems people have misunderstood, as well as misrepresented, the church’s role and influence in “secular society.”  The early Christians lived in the secular society of Rome, but by heralding the good news of salvation, what some might call “thumping,” their words along with their deeds changed all of society of their day.  In present-day America, however, secularists have taken over and changed the rules of the debate on so many key cultural issues.

Religion, or more accurately, the Christian way of life, is being shoved out of not only politics but the American culture.  We believers are being forced to accept things anathema to our way of thinking and living — accept them or be labeled “haters” or, more recently, “thumpers.”

Every Christian is keenly aware of the Great Commission, where Jesus commanded, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19).  Christians in the earliest days of the Church did not keep silent about their faith, bringing it with them (and many times at great cost) into the public arena.  St. Paul debated at the illustrious Mars Hill with Greek and Athenian scholars (see Acts, Chapter 17).  Many there, in fact, welcomed his insights and reasoning skills.  Others, including both civic and religious leaders of the day, wanted him to keep his views to himself.

Think about it:  Christianity in a few hundred years after the resurrection of its namesake had changed the entire Roman Empire.  And certainly not by keeping its beliefs bottled up, only to be uncorked for an hour or two every Sunday.  No, the Good News was front-and-center in a believer’s life, sometimes even shouted from the mountaintops (when the spirit so moved).

But, I am afraid the days of free speech for Bible-believing Christians may be quickly winding down.  If the Supreme Court sanctions gay marriage, God and country will both soon fade away.  America will fast become like Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Germany.  It may be that the day is near when any church unwilling to preach the State’s “gospel” will not be allowed to exist.  (Woe to churches which currently meet on public property — in school auditoriums, for example.)

If we Christian’s are no longer able to share what the God of the Universe has revealed to us, how can anyone’s thinking on gay marriage or abortion or taking care of the planet or whatever be shaped or swayed?

I walked past a parked car the other day that was plastered with bumper stickers championing a far-left point of view.  One that especially grabbed my attention said, “The last time religion and politics mixed, People got burned at the stake!”

After pondering this for a second, I thought, I wish I could meet the driver of this car and let him know that a more accurate statement would be, “The last time religion and politics mixed, William Wilberforce freed the slaves.”  It has been Gospel-believing Christians, applying the tenets of the Word of God, who have taken on the huge challenges of humanity and, many times through much personal sacrifice (think martyrs), have freed many from bondage.

In the book of Romans, Paul challenges people to “be transformed by the renewing of your thinking.”  (Romans 12:2).  Will the Christian way of thinking be welcome in the “court of public opinion,” or will we just settle into being a country filled with people who have a bumper-sticker mentality, never having a thought beyond the cleverest saying we can slap onto the tail end of our vehicles.
