PROTECT YOUR PARENTAL RIGHTS NOW

Posted on June 30, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , |

YOUR PARENTAL RIGHTS ARE UNDER ATTACK! The UN is working on a GLOBAL dictate under the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child.
In order to assure the US government does not adopt the UN’s policy which regulates education, discipline, feeding, etc.. please WRITE your CONGRESS REP and SENATOR NOW!  There is a bill in joint houses to ensure your rights as an American to raise your child as YOU see fit.  Please act now as time is short. This link will tell you about the bill. Below that are the links to your reps in DC.
 
 
 
 
Federal Parental Rights Amendment

The Federal Parental Rights Amendment proposal now has over 100 Congressional Supporters. We need to push this forward to at least 120 before the middle of July! You can help by getting both Representatives and Senators on board.

This means PHONE CALLS and FAXES!

In addition to the phone calls and faxes, please take a moment to write your own Congressman and request their support or thank them for their support.

https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml

After looking up your own Representative by entering your state and zip code at the writerep website above visit this link to see if your Representative is listed as a supporter:
http://hoekstra.house.gov/parentsrights/cosponsors.aspx

If they are still not listed as a supporter, please write them and ask for them to state their position on House Joint Resolution 42 and why they are holding the position, then send a copy of the response that you receive to me directly at laryholland@sbcglobal.net. You may have to follow-up with them if you get “boiler-plate” letters that say “we will take your views into consideration… you want their position and views.

The Senate Version of the proposed Constitutional Amendment is referenced as Senate Joint Resolution 16. There are a lot less Senators to have to speak to, so this should be easier. We need each and every position of our Senators and a thank you to Senator Jim DeMint.

http://senate.gov/

At the top of the Senate.Gov website link there is a drop down menu to select your State. Once you select your state and use the links to contact both of the Senators in your State.

If you call them, ask them very politely if they support Senator Jim DeMint’s Senate Joint Resolution 16. Report back their name, state, and position. Follow-up with their web form from the link above, send a nice follow-up to them as well. If you have any questions on this, we can help, just drop an email or a phone call.

After Postponement:
Card Check In Senate Next Month
It’s About Freedom Not Fear by Tim Cameron at American Solutions
Our polling shows that the American people are firmly on the side of supporting a worker’s right to a secret ballot election.  In fact, the tri-partisan agreement to defend this right is overwhelming, as 77% of Republicans, 82% of Democrats, and 79% of independents believe in protecting private ballots.  Support for private ballots is so broad it also spanned union households and every subgroup examined, including majorities of every age, race, geographic group and both genders. So, once again…. why are our representatives in Senate and Congress working against our wishes??????? Put the pressure on.. sign the petition at link above.

Europe Encourages Higher Taxes In America … Heritage Foundation
The solution, according to the Prime Minister, is obvious: make sure people don’t have any other options. In his words, “deeper co-operation is therefore necessary if tax revenues are to be increased in a way that truly helps fiscal consolidation.” If everyone agrees to raise taxes together, then there will be no tax competition, and an enormous obstacle in the way of building the ever-bigger state will have been blown away. But the real prize for the EU lies in the US. The goal of all this Euro-coordination, the Prime Minister argues, is to “encourage the US – with lower tax levels in most areas – to do what has to be done to address its spiraling budget deficit.” Well, we can agree that the U.S. has a spiraling budget deficit. But what the EU is after is to convince the U.S. that lower American taxes – to the extent that they are, in fact, lower – need to be raised in order to reduce tax competition and thereby make life easier for big-spending European welfare states.
 
Dems Backtrack, Scrap Plans for Probe Into Scandal-Tarnished ACORN …Washington Times
House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. has backed off his plan to investigate wrongdoing by the liberal activist group ACORN, saying “powers that be” put the kibosh on the idea. Mr. Conyers, Michigan Democrat, earlier bucked his party leaders by calling for hearings on accusations the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) has committed crimes ranging from voter fraud to a mob-style “protection” racket. “The powers that be decided against it,” Mr. Conyers told The Washington Times.
 

Al Gore and his Ponzi Scheme

http://centristatheart.blogspot.com/2009/06/how-al-gore-profits-from-global-warming.html

An environmental start-up backed by Al Gore’s venture capital firm aims to take advantage of coming U.S. climate change legislation by helping companies like Coca Cola and even cities cut pollution. Hara, a 25-employee company that debuted in 2008, provides online software to help companies reduce their carbon footprint — a $2.5 billion market that will grow 10-fold if the proposed energy bill, which will require companies to get permits for emissions, becomes law, Chief Executive Amit Chatterjee said. Steve Milloy has this to say about the sordid affair: “Operating as a stealth tax, cap-and-trade will make the vast majority of Americans poorer and less free — but Al Gore, Kleiner Perkins, Amit Chatterjee and Hara will be laughing all the way to the bank.”

HR 675. Obama’s way around Posse Comitatus

http://dprogram.net/2009/06/29/h-r-675-building-obama%e2%80%99s-civilian-national-security-force-2/

In January, without any recognizable corporate media coverage, Rep. Bob Filner, a California Democrat, introduced HR 675. The bill would amend title 10 of the United States Code and extend to civilian employees of the Department of Defense the authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms. The bill was referred to the Armed Services Committee on January 26, 2009. H.R. 675 sidesteps Posse Comitatus by defining “law enforcement officer of the Department of Defense” as “a civilian employee of the Department of Defense,” including federal police officers, detectives, criminal investigators, special agents, and game law enforcement officers classified by the Office of Personnel Management Occupational Series 0083 (the United States Office of Personnel Management is described as an “independent agency” of the U.S. government that manages the civil service of the federal government).   Members of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce shall be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense in accordance with DoDD 3000.05.

Obama.. brought to you by GE

Posted on June 29, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , , |

GE and the Obama administration go hand in hand, just as Bush and Haliburton did. All of the big new legislative measures .. brought to you by GE.
 
How a Loophole Benefits GE in Bank Rescue
Industrial Giant Becomes Top Recipient in Debt-Guarantee Program
By Jeff Gerth and Brady Dennis
ProPublica and Washington Post Staff Writer
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/28/AR2009062802955_pf.html
GE, the world’s largest industrial company, has quietly become the biggest beneficiary of one of the government’s key rescue programs for banks. GE Capital, the company’s massive financing arm, has issued nearly a quarter of the $340 billion in debt backed by the TLGP program. 
Obama’s Climate Exchange Is A Gift To GE by Joe Weisenthal at Business Insider  
GE needs all the help it can get right now, with its stock hurtling closer towards $0 on a daily basis. The company obviously stands to benefit from infrastructure buildout, and from capturing its share of green (energy) dollars. The more wind-turbines we erect, the better for GE. But there’s a nexus between its green ambitions and its finance unit in the form of a new venture called Greenhouse Gas Services, which will facilitate the trade of carbon tax credits. 
GE: Obama’s corporate sponsor by twine.com
For all of the carping liberals did for eight years about corporate cronyism in George W. Bush’s White House, they seem to turn a blind eye to the same behavior in President Obama’s. With plans in place for a major overhaul in the health-care industry, General Electric is positioning itself to become a major beneficiary of these health care reforms. Recently at the Business and Social Responsibility Conference, General Electric Chief Executive Officer Jeff Immelt referred to America’s current economic crisis as part of a “reset” rather than part of an economic cycle, saying, “People who understand that will prosper in the future, and people who don’t understand that will get left behind.”

UN Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis
This is a follow up to the weekend news of the impending Global Tax perpetuated by the UN on us. The conference was last week. Above is the speach given by the UN Administrator of Development Program. Basically it says they need the money to continue it’s works in Africa and other areas around the world and that the global economic crisis is no excuse for not continuing with the plan. The conference adopts the finalized 16-page document. It reminds the industrialized countries of their promise at the G20 summit in London to pour more than a trillion dollars to stimulate world economy. The move also calls for a greater share of the global stimulus fund for developing countries. Furthermore, it requires an overhaul of international  financial institutions, as well as more influence of the United Nations in future negotiations. Immediately after the signing and  adoption of the program, the U.S. signified its concerns. The country asserts that the reform of financial institutions could only  be made by respective UN members and not by the United Nations as a whole.  Of particular interest is the paragraph numbered 14 in this document:
Congress is killing U.S. softly with too many laws and too much red tape    by Hugh Hewitt
The Obama/Pelosi/Reid Democrats in charge of everything in Washington have decided to order everything on the menu, and a permanent class of government-addicted elites –lawyers, economists, think-tankers, MSMers, senior bureaucrats– are cheering them on because the growth in the size and complexity of government means a growth in the demand curve for specialist services at specialist prices. A country struggling to get through the worst recession since the Great Depression cannot imagine that its elected representatives are pushing the imposition of vast new taxes and the creation of gigantic new bureaucracies, but it is. 
 
More on Friday’s Passage of Cap & Trade in House.. some call it Treason, others call it Rape of Taxpayers, It Can Not Stand
 Warning: Energy rationing ahead  By: Irwin M. Stelzer 
The “American Clean Energy and Security” Rip-Off By Peter Orvetti 
As its sponsors struggled to make it palatable to representatives from energy-producing states, the bill swelled from 942 pages to over 1,200, leaving undecided members little time to digest the new material. This brings to mind Rep. John Conyers’s admission to Michael Moore that members of Congress “don’t really read most of the bills” they vote for, because it would “slow down the legislative process.”.. A Center for Data Analysis study concludes ACES will hurt the gross domestic product by $9.4 trillion by 2035 and cost the average family $1,241 per year. That’s because, as the Wall Street Journal put it last week, “the whole point of cap and trade is to hike the price of electricity and gas so that Americans will use less. These higher prices will show up not just in electricity bills or at the gas station but in every manufactured good, from food to cars.” A British analysis finds the average family there is paying nearly $1,300 a year for carbon-cutting programs that were introduced just a few years ago.
Map Showing Each States Obligation (New Taxes) Under Cap and Trade
And there’s the rub. America possesses vast untapped reserves of natural gas and an abundance of coal with which to generate electricity. But environmental opposition prevents exploitation of our natural gas reserves. And the green position that there is no such thing as “clean coal,” combined with environmentalists’ skill at using the judicial process to obtain goals they cannot achieve in the legislature, has caused the cancellation of numerous coal plants.

Cap and Trade PASSED in the House…. meaning you will pay increased taxes on EVERY SINGLE THING YOU PURCHASE, if the Senate also passes this bill. The taxes will amount to thousands of dollars per year for the average family. Utility billls will double. Gasoline will rise substantially. This will also allow the government to dictate, no mandate, the use of every ounce of water, every bit of energy and every product whose production causes carbon to be emmited that you use. Furthermore, the bill leaves wide open changes to it as the government sees fit. As well California building standards are mandated throughout the rest of the country under the bill, along with a grading system for every home (existing and future) to calculate the amount of energy it uses. From windows to appliances and everything in between, the formula will calculate a number, a grade if you will,  which you will have to disclose in order to sell your home at market. The bill does a lot more, but quite frankly who knows what all else it does.. at 1510 pages of legal ease- of which most congressmen did not read… I just plain can’t tell you what else is in the bill. I do know the democrats had only one copy on the floor- one without the 300 +  page amendment added in the middle of the night last night- and which they would not allow the republicans to read. I watched this go down today over various wire services, twitter, the internet and television, and I can tell you, today I am the one who is embarassed to be an American. Today I am the one who is not proud of my country. I am proud of the hundreds of thousands of citizens who stood up. Thank you to all of you who did. Now the real fight begins. Every single American citizen needs to stand up and make sure this does not make it through the senate. And all of us need to remember every single name on that yes list… http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2009/roll477.xml  and vote them out of office faster than they can say Cap and Trade!  Here are other bits and pieces I learned over the past 30 hours…. Henry Waxman threatened to have the DCCC Chairman withhold campaign funding for any Democrat that did not vote yes. At the big tax payer funded Luau last night at the White House, President Obama had Rahmbo round up reps who were on the fence or voting no  on Cap and Trade today, for a mandated personal one and one confab with the president. Furthermore, the president followed up with a phone call to each one of those he tried to intimidate at the Luau. Just when I had given up on the republicans (well, all politicians) most did stand up for the citizens by casting the correct vote.. THIS TIME. Last night, in the middle of the night, the consumer protections for American families making over 33K for a family of four, were stripped from the bill. This means that any family of four making over 33K per year will now see the increases as described at the top of the newsletter for today. No representative read the bill before voting. The bill will severly impact families and individuals in rural America. City dwellers will fare better. It is rumored that cars will now be manufactured with tracking devices so that they will be able to tax you on each mile you drive, with no break for those who drive for work or live in suburban or rural areas. There are many other rumored portions of the 1510 page bill … it will take time to digest the whole thing.. but also, it is written in a way which you can not understand what it’s saying. That is done on purpose so the bill could be tailored to the whim of the White House.
 
The House’s unfunny climate tax joke By: Myron Ebell of the Washington Examiner
 House Democratic leaders have managed to squeeze a 1510-page energy-rationing bill through the House on a 219 to 212 vote by filling it full of payoffs to special interests, not releasing the full text until 3 AM the night before the vote, and restricting debate to three hours. The process should be an embarrassment to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) and Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Beverly Hills), but once people find out what’s in it, the bill will become an embarrassment to everyone who voted for it. Waxman-Markey has no future in the Senate, and with any luck this first victory for energy-rationing legislation will be the last. I congratulate Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.) for their magnificent leadership against the bill. On the other hand, the eight Republicans who voted for this monstrosity provided the margin of victory, which suggests that the Republicans in Congress are still in disarray.
As a side note.. Dick Morris said the dems had it locked up but excused the dems in danger of loosing their seat in reelection battles in favor of Republicans who are spineless and would cross the isle to support.

FOR YOUR OWN SAKE… PLEASE TAKE 4 MINUTES AND READ THIS ARTICLE… IT JUST GETS WORSE AND WORSE

Obma-backed Plan Volunteers Americans for Global Tax  by sakerfa

The United Nations is proceeding, with President Obama’s acquiescence, to implement a global plan to create a new international socialist order financed by global taxes on the American people. The Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and its Impact on Development that begins today will consider adoption of a document calling for “new voluntary and innovative sources of financing initiatives to provide additional stable sources of development finance…” This is U.N.-speak for global taxes. They are anything but “voluntary” for the people forced to pay them. The conference was postponed from June 1-3 to June 24-26 at the U.N. in New York. While the “outcome document” has been watered down somewhat from the previous version, it still reaffirms attainment of the U.N.’s Millennium Development Goals, which would require the payment of $845 billion from U.S. taxpayers. A commitment to the MDGs was a stated objective of the Global Poverty Act, which Barack Obama had introduced as a U.S. senator. It requires the U.S. to devote 0.7 percent of Gross National Income to foreign aid. Now, as President, Obama can bypass the Congress and simply direct his Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice to approve the U.N. conference document. Then the pressure will be increased on Congress to come up with the money and satisfy our “international commitments.”

 

 

 

Climate Bill’s Passage ‘unrestrained exercise of raw political power, arm-twisting, intimidation’ By Marc Morano 

This passage of this bill does not signify any great “green revolution” or “growing” climate “awareness” on the part of Congress. Instead, the methods and manner that the Pelosi led House achieved final passage, represents nothing more than unrestrained exercise of raw political power, arm-twisting, intimidation and special interest handouts. A bill that is based on crumbling scientific claims and a bill that will have no detectable climate impact.  
 The American People Have Something to Say by the 912 Project Fan Site  http://ow.ly/fXVo
Today the Congress of the United States of America passed a devastating bill that will have a devastatingly negative effect on the American economy, which will make America less competitive in the World environment. Over the past few days people have bombarded the phone lines in Washington, D.C., urging their Representatives to vote no on the Cap and Trade Bill. I was one of them. Most of us, who made these phone calls, made a promise to our Reps. that if they vote in favor of this Bill, we would hold them accountable for their choice to play into the hands of special interest instead of listening to their constituents. Apparently YOU did not hear us. Or, maybe you just don’t give a DAMN what we have to say. By choosing to constantly deny us our right for our voices to be heard, you have made a choice to no longer represent We The People. I promised the Representatives in Iowa that I would make it my mission to attack them in every way I could if they voted yes on the Cap and Trade Bill.

Trial Lawyers’ Influence
As trial lawyers’ wealth and political influence are used to manipulate our legal system, American citizens pay the price – through lost job opportunities, diminished access to healthcare, higher consumer prices and reduced access to courtrooms filled with frivolous cases. The overall high cost of our tort system means that every American pays an average of $835 annually, according to Tillinghast/TowersPerrin’s annual report on the costs of the U.S. legal system Americans will continue to pay the price until trial lawyers’ abuses of the legal system are reined in once and for all.

Our civil justice system is under attack by personal injury lawyers who game the legal system for personal profit in the name of “consumer protection.”  The reality is that consumers are the ones getting fleeced.  These abusive lawsuits harm the economy and job creation, threaten our access to affordable, quality health care, and  delay justice for the truly injured by clogging our courts. Ultimately, lawsuit abuse hurts all of us.

Your Duty As A Citizen

Posted on June 25, 2009. Filed under: Soapbox | Tags: , |

Our government is completely out of control. Continually and unconstitutionally saddling every American citizen with unjust taxation and debt. Supposedly representing us but doing seemingly everything possible to stab us in the back at every turn. Our constitutional God given rights are being seriously threatened.
 
And yet, there is so much apathy. Or is it the feeling of being overwhelmed and not knowing what to do?
 
Everyone is busy with their lives. So much to do and time is so short on a daily basis.
 
Keeping your eyes peeled for what is really going on is hard work. Especially now when it seems there is so much happening every day. It’s overwhelming.
 
So, do we let them take advantage of us in such an egregious way, or do we fight back?
 
Only you can answer that question. What is your money and your rights worth to you?
Is it worth an hour a day? Ten minutes a day?
 
I, personally, try to make it easier by providing a small newsletter highlighting what is going on behind your back in our government and country. Perhaps you only have time to look at that, and hopefully take an extra minute to pass it to your friends. Maybe you can spare ten additional minutes to contact your government representatives. Maybe you have an hour to attend a tea party. Maybe you have the time to join a local citizens group to help fight back.
 
If you feel the government is adequately representing you, then it’s ok to do nothing. If you think this country is going down the tubes, then it is your responsibility to do something about it. Please do your part to make this country the America we remember. But do it fast, time is indeed running out. Please share this plea with your friends. We need everyone to help.

Did Obama Say We Should Kill the Old Folks to Save Money Last Night? By Warner Todd Huston  

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/12312

I am wondering when the euthanasia folks are going to start touting this one? I mean, it sure seemed to me as if the most caring, most civil, most intelligent president evah just said that healthcare could be cheaper if we don’t give old folks and the infirm the full measure of care they now get. It appeared that Obama said we should just let them die or suffer because they aren’t worth the effort. Imagine if Bush had said something like this? The left wouldn’t have hesitated to call him any manner of names.

1,200 page bill with $2 trillion tax hike being jammed through Congress. Nancy Pelosi and other folks in House Leadership are attempting to jam a 1,200 page bill through Congress in a surprise move. This beauty contains a $2 trillion tax increase. That’s two trillion, with a T, or more than $6,600 for every man, woman, and child alive in America today. Jam Congress with emails and calls now!

How The Game Is Played
White House officials phoned a blogger from a popular left-leaning Web site on Monday evening to tell him that President Barack Obama had been impressed with his online reporting about Iran. Could the writer pass along a question from an Iranian during the president’s news conference on Tuesday? Of course. The next day, The Huffington Post’s Nico Pitney got a prime location in the White House Briefing Room and was the second reporter Obama picked for a question.

U.N. to Emerge as Global IRS
While our media sleep, the United Nations is proceeding, with President Obama’s acquiescence, to implement a global plan to create a new international socialist order financed by global taxes on the American people. The Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and its Impact on Development that begins on Wednesday will consider adoption of a document calling for “new voluntary and innovative sources of financing initiatives to provide additional stable sources of development finance…” This is U.N.-speak for global taxes. They are anything but “voluntary” for the people forced to pay them. The most “popular” proposals, which could generate tens of billions of dollars in revenue for global purposes, involve taxes on greenhouse gas emissions and financial transactions such as stock trades. Now, as President, Obama can bypass the Congress and simply direct his Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice to approve the U.N. conference document. Then the pressure will be increased on Congress to come up with the money and satisfy our “international commitments.”  The Stiglitz document explains, “Some of the initiatives that have been proposed encompass ‘solidarity levies’ or, more generally, taxation for global objectives. Some countries have already decreed solidarity levies on airline tickets but there is a larger set of proposals. There have also been suggestions to auction global natural resourcessuch as ocean fishing rights and pollution emission permitsfor global environmental programs.” It goes on to say, “The suggestion of taxes that could be earmarked for global objectives has a long history. To avert their being perceived as encroachments on participating countries’ fiscal sovereignty, it has been agreed that these taxes should be nationally imposed, but internationally coordinated.” So the nations of the world, including the U.S., will collect the taxes but then turn them over to institutions such as the U.N. The world body will function, in effect, like a global IRS.

National Socialism Part 2- only the names have been changed

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/12238

As President Obama routinely exceeds the US Constitution and carves a new country out of the wreckage he’s already wrought, he’s brought twenty or so new men and women into this heady mix.  They have never been used before and their jobs exist way outside the three branches of government we learned in school – the legislative, executive, and judicial. These are the new Czars, like the Car Czar, the Intergovernmental Czar, or even the new Great Lakes Czar, though what some of these folks actually do is as murky as Lake Michigan in March or an expansive Obama speech in support of the little folks in Iran who are trying to crack open a window of freedom. …..And if you substitute the cherubic faces, toothy grins, and blank stares of Dick Turban, Chris Dodd, and Harry Reid for similarly red nosed, rosy cheeked, and dull stares of the paladins who always voted yes for President Hermann Goering in the Reichstag, you’ll find that similar “yes-man” mind-set.  The utter disdain for each one’s constitution is the same.  The only differences are the Brown Shirts, ties, slacks, daggers on the Sam Browne belts, and polished boots v. the Brooks Brothers suit ensembles with the rep ties that are all the rage today.

Most States Loose Under Cap and Trade – SCHEDULED TO GO TO HOUSE FLOOR FOR VOTE FRIDAY- CALL YOUR REPS NOW!

http://tinyurl.com/nz5gnh

Most States Lose Under HR 2454 Consumers in red colored states will pay more for electricity to make up for the shortfall in allowances (dollars in millions). Michigan, for example falls short by more than $334 million. To make up the shortfall, red states will have to seek high-cost, non-CO2 emitting electricity sources, reduce electricity production and consumption, or purchase allowances from the green states (like CA and NY- only 10 states total), or purchase domestic and international offsets, likely a combination of the three.

TMR has learned that tonight, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson, has struck a backroom deal with House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman regarding Speaker Pelosi’s National Energy Tax that will Cost 2.5 Million American jobs and hit every region of the country. Our source on the hill says: While Peterson managed to re-arrange a few deck chairs, this bill remains an economic Titanic for America, especially families in rural areas. If you’re writing on this, please feel free to use the quote below from me. “The backroom deal struck tonight by Chairman Peterson will not protect rural America from Speaker Pelosi’s national energy tax. Though he eked out a few trivial concessions, the core of this legislation remains the same: a job-killing tax increase that will hit every single American, especially middle class families in the heartland of America.”

It is not too late to tell Congress to kill this flawed bill. Call your representative in Congress and ask him or her to vote no on the Waxman-Markey climate bill (otherwise known as cap-and-tax) and support affordable energy, American jobs and our quality of life.

Carol Quigley, Professor of History at Georgetown University, stated, “The Council of Foreign Relations is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.” They hold regular private meetings including members, and very select guests. Occasionally they will hold a public meeting, and invite the open press (including C-Span). The image of the CFR as a closed-shop bi-partisan discussion forum for the foreign policy establishment has fuelled criticism that the organisation and its members are controlling world policy and events. In 1938 the Council created numerous Committees on Foreign Relations throughout the county, in 1995 the Committees became a separate organization under the umbrella of the American Committees on Foreign Relations in Washington D.C..

Please Sign The Petition To Stop the EPA  
http://tinyurl.com/lnxhpk
On April 17, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an endangerment finding, saying that global warming poses a serious threat to public health and safety. Thus, almost anything that emits carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases could be regulated under the Clean Air Act. This is the first official action taken by the federal government to regulate carbon dioxide.Docket ID # EPA-HQ-OAR-2009-0171, the Proposed Endangerment Findings for carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride is an illegitmate persuit. These gases do not threaten the public health and welfare, and regulation of such gases would cause economic harm.Using the Clean Air Act to regulate carbon dioxide would likely be the most expensive and expansive environmental regulation in history and will bypass the legislative process completely. Furthermore, although the Environmental Protection Agency claims the effects of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are compelling and overwhelming, the scientific evidence suggests anything but that. The agency should not act prematurely to regulate something that is not a problem to begin with.
 
Instead of Real Financial Reform,  Plan capitulates to Wall Street
The Financial Regulatory Reform proposal promotes Wall Street’s “product,” debt creation, at the expense of the economy at large, and lets financial chieftains continue to self-regulate the debt industry – and by the way, to keep all their gains from the past decade’s worth of fraudulent lending, scot-free. Confronting the wreckage of a debt crisis worse than any since the Great Depression, Mr. Obama has achieved what no Republican could have: rescuing the Bush Administration’s pro-creditor policies that fostered the Bubble Economy in the first place. “Most of the financial sector lobby community is happy with what has emerged,” the Financial Times summarized. A spokesman for the Financial Services Forum, a major Wall Street lobbying organization, called the proposals “careful and balanced.” With such endorsements, victims of predatory lending have good reason to worry. The Obama plan is just the opposite from reforming the financial system along lines that progressive Democrats and other critics have urged.
 
Congress “zeros out” funding for Democracy Programs In Iran, Just As Citizens Beg For Democracy

Funding for pro-democracy programs began in 2004, when Congress earmarked $1.5 million of the State Department budget for “educational, humanitarian, and non-governmental organizations and individuals inside Iran to support the advancement of democracy and human rights in Iran.” The funding ramped up dramatically two years later, when Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice requested $75 million for pro-democracy programs. More than half of the $66.1 million Congress finally appropriated went to expand U.S. government-funded Persian language broadcasting services at Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. But no money has been earmarked for such programs in the administration’s fiscal 2010 foreign operations budget request. Congressional sources told Newsmax they doubted that a Democrat-controlled Congress would add it when the budget comes before a committee next week.

International Bailout Brings Us Closer to Economic Collapse
As Americans struggle through the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, this emergency supplemental appropriations bill sends $660 million to Gaza, $555 million to Israel, $310 million to Egypt, $300 million to Jordan, and $420 million to Mexico. Some $889 million will be sent to the United Nations for so-called “peacekeeping” missions. Almost one billion dollars will be sent overseas to address the global financial crisis outside our borders. Nearly $8 billion will be spent to address a “potential pandemic flu” which could result in mandatory vaccinations for no discernable reason other than to enrich the Pharmaceutical companies that make the vaccine. Perhaps most outrageous is the $108 billion loan guarantee to the International Monetary Fund. These new loan guarantees will allow that destructive organization to continue spending taxpayer money to prop up corrupt leaders and promote harmful economic policies overseas.

In a letter dated June 11 an attorney for ACORN advised top whistleblowers that their unauthorized use of the organization’s name could make them liable for monetary damages and injunctive relief.  ACORN executives have also changed their organization’s name, which was tarnished by investigations in at least 14 states of allegations of voter registration fraud during the 2008 presidential campaign, and charges by current and former members of financial mismanagement and misrepresentation. The new name will let ACORN leaders continue their operations without worrying about prior bad publicity. Acorn has officially changed its name to “Community Organizations International”.
 
 While Americans Are Unemployed, Senate Dems Focus on Guest Worker Program
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) says he wants to enact a new guest worker program as part of a comprehensive immigration reform bill that he is vowing to take up in Congress.

Sen. Barry Goldwater wrote in his book With No Apologies: “In my view, the Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power: political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical. All this is to be done in the interest of creating a more peaceful, more productive world community. What the Trilateralists truly intend is the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nation-states involved. They believe the abundant materialism they propose to create will overwhelm existing differences. As managers and creators of the system they will rule the future.”

“Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves.” Eric Hoffer

A Nation of Independent Voters By Daniel Greenfield
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/12163

Lately the percentage of independent voters has been growing, at the expense of the Republican voter. And it might be worth taking the time to ask why. Voters identify with a party because they feel that it does or does not represent them. But whose interests does the Republican Party actually represent? In the aftermath of the 2008 election, the Democratic Party has quite clearly demonstrated who they represent. Unions, radical socialists, people who expected the government to pay for everything and environmentalists who want to use global warming as a pretext for controlling people’s daily lives. As Theodore Lowi aptly described in The End of Liberalism: The Second Republic of the United States, it was the willingness of Republican administrations to approve the social liberal bureaucratic coups of their Democratic predecessors that made socialism in the United States possible. As a result instead of a two party system representing two separate philosophies of government, the two party system became a struggle between the radical socialists and the moderate socialists. Is it any wonder then that even so many Republican voters want out?

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/12158  By Henry Lamb

Over the last several weeks, the U.S. Dept of Agriculture has been conducting “listening sessions” in a dozen cities across the country. The purpose of these sessions was to find ways to make the proposed Nation Animal Identification System acceptable to the people who own livestock. It is abundantly clear that the people who will be governed by the NAIS, do not consent to the proposed law. Legitimate government is empowered by the consent of the governed; power imposed by the government without the consent of the governed is tyranny.

Divided We Stand by Paul Starobin in WSJ recently
“Devolved America is a vision faithful both to certain postindustrial realities as well as to the pluralistic heart of the American political tradition—a tradition that has been betrayed by the creeping centralization of power in Washington over the decades but may yet reassert itself as an animating spirit for the future. Consider this proposition: America of the 21st century, propelled by currents of modernity that tend to favor the little over the big, may trace a long circle back to the original small-government ideas of the American experiment. The present-day American Goliath may turn out to be a freak of a waning age of politics and economics as conducted on a super-sized scale—too large to make any rational sense in an emerging age of personal empowerment that harks back to the era of the yeoman farmer of America’s early days. The society may find blessed new life, as paradoxical as this may sound, in a return to a smaller form. ..All of this adds up to a federal power grab that might make even FDR’s New Dealers blush. But that’s just the point: Not surprisingly, a lot of folks in the land of Jefferson are taking a stand against an approach that stands to make an indebted citizenry yet more dependent on an already immense federal power.”

Gross Misuse of Science to a Politacal End
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/12192
By Dr. Tim Ball Monday, June 22, 2009 The enemies of freedom do not argue; they shout and they shoot. –Dean William Inge
Media focuses on the Obama administration policies that put the entire economy in jeopardy through massive and growing debt. It involves the complete illogic of claiming you can reduce debt by increasing debt; what I have called short term gain for long-term pain. It also means increase in government control. However, there are many legislative actions sliding through almost unnoticed, based on equally false logic and information that are threats to freedom through increased government control and economically damaging. … see also link in article Proposed Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases The Clean Air Act item 7602 (g) says, The term “air pollutant” means any air pollution agent or combination of such agents, including any physical, chemical, biological, radioactive (including source material, special nuclear material, and byproduct material) substance or matter which is emitted into or otherwise enters the ambient air. The definition is so wide it is meaningless or as Scalia put it, “malleable”. It could include virtually anything including oxygen. The EPA identify six greenhouse gases namely, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride. This is a clever mix because the first three are natural atmospheric gases and the last three man-made. (Ironically, hydrofluorocarbons were introduced as a substitute for chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) incorrectly claimed to be destroying the ozone layer. The problem is there was never any proof that CFCs were destroying the ozone.) All of these gases together are less than 4 percent of total greenhouse gases. How can they list naturally occurring gases as pollutants? Because they claim they are causing global warming and climate change, but those are natural processes. There is no evidence that they are due to greenhouse gases at all except in the completely contrived computer models and broadcast in the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). CO2 is essential to life and not causing warming or climate change. In every record for any time period and any duration temperatures change before CO2 not as assumed in the theory that human CO2 is the cause. Methane is only 0.00017 percent of all atmospheric gases and 0.36 percent of greenhouse gases so of little or no consequence. More important, the atmospheric levels have dropped for 14 of the last 15 years. Why don’t they list water vapor, which is 95 percent of the greenhouse gases by volume? It is by far the most important and abundant greenhouse gas, but is virtually ignored. How much does it vary? How much of any change in the greenhouse effect is due to water vapor? The answer is we don’t know because it varies more around the globe than any other greenhouse gas and is very difficult to measure worldwide.

A LOOK AT POST CAPITALIST AMERICA:
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/12191
The planned obsolescence of American business is high on Obama’s agenda. And it is a process that began with the overregulation and taxation of business that killed American industry, driving factories overseas and business to cheaper overseas competitors. The Obama administration’s focus on the environment is meant to use environmental regulations to dismantle what’s left of American industry, beginning with coal and ending everywhere else. Those industries that remain will be union run, government subsidized dinosaurs. The question becomes, why kill business? Government spending depends on the golden egg of taxation that comes from the goose of commerce. Throttle the goose, and where will the golden eggs come from? That is a reasonable question, but the same people ready to run up a 10 trillion dollar deficit built on debt to China are not the people you should expect reasonable thought from. The socialist drive all along has been to reconstruct society and centralize it through government. Asking the same people who think Cuba represents a successful revolutionary experiment about finance is like asking a morbid alcoholic who will pay for the whiskey when he gets fired from his job.

Part 2: Who holds REAL control – The Bilderburg Group
When such rich and powerful people meet up in secret, with military intelligence managing their security, with hardly a whisper escaping of what goes on inside, people are right to be suspicious. But the true power of Bilderberg comes from the fact that participants are in a bubble, sealed off from reality and the devastating implications on the ground of the black-science economic solutions on the table. No, it’s not a ‘conspiracy’. The world’s leading financiers and foreign policy strategists don’t get together at Bilderberg to draw up their ‘secret plans for the future’. It’s subtler than that. These meetings create an artificial ‘consensus’ in an attempt to spellbind visiting politicians and and other men of influence. Blair has fallen for this hook, line and sinker. It’s about reinforcing – often to the very people who are on the edge of condemning Globalisation – the illusion that Globalisation is ‘good’, ‘popular’ and that it’s inevitable. Bilderberg is an extremely influential lobbying group. That’s not to say though that the organisers don’t have a hidden agenda, they do, namely acumulation of wealth and power into their own hands whilst explaining to the participants that globalisation is for the good of all. It is also a very good forum for ‘interviewing’ potential future political figures such as Clinton (1991) and Blair (1993) and most recently Hillary and Obama (2008). The ideology put forward at the Bilderberg conferences is that what’s good for banking and big business is good for the mere mortals of the world. Silently banished are the critical voices, those that might point out that debt is spiralling out of control, that wealth is being sucked away from ordinary people and into the hands of the faceless corporate institutions, that millions are dying as a direct result of the global heavyweight Rockefeller/Rothschild economic strategies. http://sociologias-com.blogspot.com/2009/05/bilderberg-plan-for-2009-remaking.html  and http://www.bilderberggroup.net/  … see also the following links:

I spend hours a day pouring over blogs, online papers, and other outlets for news… Twitter being a prime example. I do this because I love my country. I do this because I really feel our country and our liberty, not to mention our hard earned wages, are in terrible jeopardy.

This is not because we have democrats in power, of late the republicans have not been much better. This is because the government no longer cares what we think, regardless of who is in power. It matters not what side of the fence you’re on – just that you are proud to be an American.

I know many people no longer watch the news as they feel it depressing, or perhaps they just have no time. Even if the do watch the news, most of the news outlets and the papers selectively issue the news with little regard for true journalism.

This includes even FOX, but they are by far the most reliable of available sources on television. They just get tripped up with thinking the tabloid news is real. Instead of talking about what really matters, they get tied up in the crap from Hollywood, or sensational gossip, etc.. Just like others in the “news” biz. Like a lullabye it puts American minds to rest. WAKE UP!

What can you do to take your country back? It’s not as hard as you may think. I have put myself in contact with people like me, who care about the country. Who care about our liberty and freedom, the quality of our lives, and the future of our children and grandchildren. Of the many alerts I receive in a day, I pass forward in email those I feel are of dyer importance. These come from watchdog groups national in scope, national institutions, truth in news organizations, etc..

I feel that as a citizen who believes in the country the way our forefathers meant it to be, it is my obligation to help educate our fellow citizens to the overwhelming assault on our country. The new assault is much quieter than 09/11, much sneakier and hard to detect unless you are paying close attention. Worst of all, it’s from the people we elected to office to represent us! Most people are not even noticing…and may think the “recession”, the housing crisis, the losses in the stock market and other tragic events of late are just dumb luck. No, really.

Please help. Help by passing these items along to your friends who may be too busy to pay attention. It really will matter. It takes only seconds a day. It enables any of us with internet and email to join the fight to get our country back. The only way we can fight this battle to win is to educate the public. Make them aware of what is really going on, not just what the national media wants them to know.

Many people gave their lives for our liberty.. all we have to do to keep it is pay attention and fight back! Most of us want to be good citizens and good Americans, it’s only the information needed that’s lacking. I know there are many more on our side than on the side that wants our country transmuted to socialism or fascism. Join in

You, too, can link with people. If you have not yet joined twitter, please sign up, it’s free. Hook up to me if you want .. my screen name is DesireePaquette … you can see who I “follow” (which is where most of my alerts come from) and choose to follow them too, if you want. Then you will also be on the forefront of fighting peacefully for our country. Our country really needs you to help.
