“Leaks Add to Pressure on White House Over Strategy.” There is no strategy. What do you mean, adds pressure on strategy?

There’s this big hoop-de-do with this WikiLeaks thing, this antiwar website that has been gathering and leaking confidential, top-secret documents from the Department of Defense. Can I just ask the question, how is it possible – just consider this for a minute, for a moment. WikiLeaks is able to get its hands on 90,000 – 90,000 – top-secret documents from the war in Afghanistan, covering the time period of 2004 to 2009? 90,000? Who was actually taking the time to fight a war and generate the 90,000 documents necessary to become top-secret? 90,000? That’s the first thing that strikes me. Good Lord, how many other documents are there that we don’t know about that are top secret? 90,000? I mean, that is just – good grief.

And you wonder why these exercises in nation-building are now coming down, or now have the potential to crash down as they should never have been entered into. Maybe that is because there’s a lot less time spent figuring out how to actually fight a war, win it, and get the hell out, and a lot more time spent trying to figure out how to occupy forever and how to build a nation that is acceptable to the people that think we ought to be over there building said nation.

Now, this is an interesting sidebar on this. Congressman Ron Paul has posted this today on the same subject, “On the Bloated Intelligence Bureaucracy.” And he notes this. “Recently the Washington Post ran an extensive report by Dana Priest and William M. Arkin on the bloated intelligence community. They found that an estimated 854,000 people hold top-secret security clearances.”

854,000 have top-secret security clearances? “Oh, but don’t worry. We need to spend more on national defense, Mr. Church. We need eight million with top-secret security clearances. Then we’ll really have a handle on this national security, national defense.” Just imagine. If you’ve seen all the wondrous things that we’ve done with 854,000 folks holding top-secret clearances, just imagine what we can do if you multiply that times 10. Just imagine the Fort Hood bombers that we can ignore and not stop before they start blasting up cafeterias full of innocent people. Just imagine the Time Square bombs that we cannot see unless they are erroneously constructed before they are erroneously detonated, or not detonated. Just imagine all the things that cannot be done if you just multiply the 854,000 times 10. Congressman Paul has done a little math here.

“They found that an estimated 854,000 people hold top-secret security clearances. Just what are all these people up to?” asks Ron Paul. “By my calculation, this is about 11,000 intelligence workers per al Qaeda member in Afghanistan.” Can’t we just have one? Can’t we just send Matt Damon over there, “The Bourne Identity”? You only need one good Matt Damon to do all of this. Matt Damon. Right? Have you seen “The Bourne Identity” movies and “The Bourne Supremacy” and all this stuff? What we need is a couple of good Jason Bournes. You don’t need 11,000 top-secret operatives per al Qaeda member. “Oh we have to catalog these guys.” What exactly are these people doing? It’s a good question to ask, don’t you think?

Let’s see here. “This also begs the question, if close to one million people are authorized to know top secrets, how closely guarded are these secrets? They also found that since the September 11th attacks, some 17 million square feet of building space has been built or is being built to accommodate the 250 percent expansion of intelligence organizations. Intelligence work is now done by some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private contracting companies in about 10,000 locations in the United States.

“The former director of National Intelligence, Admiral Dennis Blair, has asserted that U.S. intelligence now has the authority to target American citizens for assassination without charge or trial. How many of these resources are being devoted to spying on American citizens for nefarious reasons at home rather than targeting foreign enemies abroad?”

Hey, but we’re not spending nearly enough on defense. And we’re not spending nearly enough on intelligence. Just a measly 10,000 locations in the United States. We ought to have 150,000 locations. These things should be more populous than 7-Elevens. These things should be more populous than gas stations. These things, these locations where all this top-secret spying is going on should be more populous than anything that we have. These numbers are just startling here.

Listen to this. This is from today’s New York Slimes. Eric Schmitt and Helene Cooper writing on the same subject: “Leaks Add to Pressure on White House Over Strategy.” There is no strategy. What do you mean, adds pressure on strategy? “The White House sought to reassert control over the public debate on the Afghanistan war on Monday as political reaction to the disclosure of a six-year archive of classified military documents increased pressure on President Obama to defend his war strategy.”

He doesn’t have a war strategy. Remember, ladies and gents, that it was back in August of 2009, after waiting, what was it, 180-some days from the time that the President said [mimicking President Obama], “Now, I want to be clear. We’re going to have a new plan in Afghanistan because the one we have now sucks because I didn’t design it. And once I get finished up in here, we’re going to have a plan that’s going to kick all al Qaeda ass. And we’re going to have everything we need to win this war in Afghanistan.” And then Obama hired Gen. Stanley McChrystal to write the plan.

Now, remember, this blog was one of the first, if not the first, quite possibly the only outlet to post that writer Andy McCarthy of National Review Online, who would dare to air and dare to talk about what McCarthy had found in the McChrystal report. Because McChrystal had written a plan, a game plan, on how to build Obamastan in Afghanistan. It wasnt a plan to go in and destroy the enemy and get out, it was a plan to occupy their land, to transform them to the new america, to just be their personal police force.......

I say enough is enough, its time to bring our brave boys and girls home, its time for these people in every other country to start defending, taking care of themselves, and if they cant then so be it. It is not our job or responsibility to take care of everyone else in this world, not only can we no longer afford it, but this type of behavior or world view is def unconstitutional...

"We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."....really pelosi?

We are just finding out what was contained within that Obamacare law that Obama signed weeks ago.

Here are five things we've learned so far:

One: No sooner had Obamacare passed than the White House discovered that someone goofed. Despite all of Obama's promises and talking points, Obamacare as passed by Congress does not require insurers to cover children with expensive pre-existing medical conditions.

Immediately, the White House got an assurance from the insurers. After demonizing them for months as callous profiteers on others' misery (in fact, the entire industry is barely profitable), Obama now tells Americans that they can trust health insurance companies to do the right thing out of the goodness of their hearts.

Two: State governments discovered that they are no longer just required to guarantee payment for indigent patients' care under Medicaid. Obamacare changes Medicaid law so that now states must also guarantee treatment to the poor.

This is a thorny issue: Many doctors refuse to see Medicaid patients because the program doesn't pay enough for them to break even. (In some states, payments to doctors have been delayed for months or years.)

Some cash-strapped states expect this new definition to spawn court challenges, which will ultimately force them to pay exorbitantly high prices to doctors and hospitals for their existing patients.

Three: Even as Medicaid's costs increase because of the above, so will the number of Medicaid patients under Obamacare's coverage provisions. Thanks to the "Cornhusker Kickback" -- the special Nebraska provision that was extended to every state in the final version of the bill -- the federal taxpayer is on the hook for 90 percent of the new patients' expenses.

So remember those rosy budget projections about Obamacare reducing the deficit, or at least not costing too much? Forget it.

Four: Douglas Shulman, commissioner for the Internal Revenue Service, announced this week at the National Press Club that Obamacare means he can take your tax refund from you. Obamacare requires Americans to purchase insurance, but contains no serious enforcement mechanisms.

So, Shulman said, the IRS will collect penalties from those who fail to purchase "qualified" insurance by confiscating the interest-free loans that taxpayers make to the government throughout the year through employment withholding.

Five: The ski-tourism industry suddenly realizes that it is endangered by Obamacare. Ski resorts must now provide health care or else pay a fine for each employee who works more than 120 days out of the year -- and many of their employees do.

The bill had applied only at the 150-day threshold, until House Democrats changed it in reconciliation. They also cranked up the fine from $750 to $2,000 per employee, in order to pad their budget numbers.

Those are just five things we've learned, out of more than 2,000 pages. You can bet we'll learn a lot more in the seven months leading up to Election Day.

Speaking of which, on Monday evening, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., explained away public opposition to this new health care law, shaped in large part by the special deals he made with reluctant senators last December.

"The loud minority made a lot of noise," Reid said. "Everybody acknowledges, with rare exception, that what we did with our immediate deliverables was terrific."

Reid's state defies the laws of math. Sixty-two percent of Nevadans somehow constitute a "rare exception." And it looks as though the "loud minority" will send Reid looking for a new insurance plan later this year.

Wow, your so right obama, this reform rocks and your the messiah...in 275 years since the birth of our nation how did we survive without your omnipresent hand and wisdom to guide and tell us what to do??? See, thats the problem with us stupid conservative americans, we can`t be trusted to do anything for ourselves and the liberal politicians always know best, right?
Well this conservative american thinks not! I would never trust an organization, political party, or a president for that matter that subscribes to the belief that the end justifies the means.....

How far we have come when our elected officials no longer follow the constitution when it comes to their legislation, when they see themselves as the ruling class and appoint themselves as kings and queens over the working class and see it as their duty to take from the productive to give to the non-productive just so they will all but insure their reign of power and dominence over the rest of us.

A word of advice to you people who love your free stuff and continue to support these corrupt and immoral men and women, when your liberal masters get done going after us conservatives they will turn all their energy to you and their own kind, you can be sure of that....

Shirley Sherrod resigns from the USDA after racist video surfaces. But are racist practices just the tip of the big government iceburg at the USDA?

Former Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, who was forced to resign after a blogger posted comments she made to an NAACP audience about race, is unsure about returning to a government job, she says.

"I don't want to be the fall guy, the fall girl, for discrimination in the Department of Agriculture," Sherrod told The Associated Press Friday at her southern Georgia home. "I need a little down time to reflect on what's happened the last few days. Is there another place for me to help all of us take advantage of what has happened over the last few days? I don't know yet."

For his part, Obama has ordered a more patient, deliberative style of governance from his aides and Cabinet members after the convulsive week surrounding Sherrod's ouster.

Sherrod, 62, said she'd like to persuade Obama to visit south Georgia.

"I need to get him down here with some regular folks to see how they live and how they get along," Sherrod said. "It might give him a better understanding on how to promote togetherness in this country."

A furor erupted this week over a conservative blogger's posting of portions of a speech Sherrod gave in which she told of giving short shrift attention 24 years ago to the pleas for financial aid by a poor white farmer. Sherrod is black, and the operator of the website BigGovernment.com posted a portion of her speech. The blogger, Andrew Breitbart, said he did so to illustrate racism within the NAACP, which earlier accused the tea party of having racist elements.

It dramatized how the nation's first black president has occasionally struggled with racial tensions since he took office over a year and a half ago, after saying repeatedly during his campaign that he wanted to bridge America's racial divide.

The real issue here is not if this woman is a racist, because she is, what you people should be outraged about is how does this governmental agency with no senate oversight and only answerable to the administration is giving out home loans, yes you heard me right, 100% USDA Home Loans For Buying A House With Bad Credit With No Money Down......
what in the hell does this have to do with the safety of our food supply, and dont give the crap talking point that this for farmers....its not!
Read on:
Rural Home Loans For People With Bad Credit And Single Mothers __ The USDA Farm Home Loans program provides low interest fixed monthly mortgage payment terms to help low and moderate income households afford a house of their own to keep the family together. In such difficult economic conditions, such rural home loans from the United States Department of Agriculture, Rural Development Branch, can offer better credit flexibility compared to traditional lenders in the troubled and sluggish housing and lending market.

Do not be too put off by the "rural home loans" name of this program since many semi-rural properties just outside city limits also fall within the USDA farm home loans eligibility and will not seriously affect your transport options and commuting time to work or schools in the city and business district.

Note that applying for farm loans does not mean you will be living like a farmer, giving up on convenient amenities in the city and quiting your office job to start growing apples. Most sub-rural properties that meet the USDA loan eligibility locations are not more than 30 minutes drive from the nearest major cities.

So get this, the government is telling all their 0 liability voters(I call them lazy, shiftless americans that want something for nothing)that if they have been denied from other government assisted mortgage loan programs due to poor FICO credit score or lack of funds for the down payment, upfront fees, mortgage closing fees etc, you should seriously consider applying for USDA rural development loans instead of continuing to pay money on rentals as tenants. Many households have already benefited from being able to buy a house with no money down using 100% USDA home loans financing and more families are starting to join the program.

Georgia is receiving an additional $30 million in Recovery Act funds for direct home loans through USDA Rural Development, when pooled funds from all states are redistributed from Washington, D.C. These loans are for qualifying families considered to have low and very low incomes to purchase or build a home in a rural area.

“These amounts are greater than the funds we had remaining,” said Ed Peace, director of single family housing for USDA Rural Development in
Georgia. “This is a wonderful opportunity for rural families who want to become homeowners. These funds will disappear after Sept. 30, so we encourage those interested to call us immediately.”

So far, Georgia has helped 288 rural families through the direct home loan program, obligating over $31.7 million to help families achieve the dream of homeownership. The Recovery Act has funded 220 home loans for almost $25.8 million.

“The time has never been better for rural Georgia families to consider buying a home,” said Shirley Sherrod, state director. “These funds can be used to purchase an existing home or to build a new one.”

Besides the Sherrod connection, this USDA program in itself needs to be looked at closely.
This was another government scam to get people into homeownership (backed by the US taxpayer on defaults), very similar to Freddie and Fannie.

Lets not forget they are now giving business and industry loans....

This not to mention that they are giving out loans for misc equipment, cars...and tons of other items and services that have nothing to do with usda operations!

Let us not forget that this does just doesnt involve the president and the dems, the republicans have just as much invested in these kind of policies as the libs do....
These loans are for qualifying families considered to have low and very low incomes to purchase or build a home in a rural area...blah, blah, blah
Isn't that what got us into this mess in the first place? Oh well. They can ALWAYS blame it on the GOP. The boys in the GOP don't mind.
the ruling class boys in the GOP don't mind.

Newt Gingrich, the Georgia Peach, was on Fox again tonight blathering about "reaching out" to the racist NAACP and "holding town meetings with them".

I bet ole Newt just loves all those millions for home loans pouring into Georgia....and if he can claim a little credit, well....all the better for him when he decides to throw his John Deere cap into the presidential ring.

Oh but whats another $100 million a year between friends right?

It Is Hard To Blame The Child When There Is No One To Teach Them Differently

In 1958, 38 percent of all black children that were born were born in single-parent households or illegitimately, and thats not to mention the percentage of whites, and other nationalities... Used to be called black, white or indifferent, dare I say again, bastards. We dropped that name because that’s not nice. “Who are you to say that there needs to be a man in the house?”
Yes, who am I.
Fast forward to 2006, last statistics I saw, and now 68 percent of all children born in this republic are born to single mothers or in single-parent households. That means – this is an economic problem as well as a social problem. That means that there is a two-thirds chance that there will be no dominant male figure for young men to look up to, learn values, morals, how to treat women, dare I go on?
can’t have that now, can we – and learn how to be a man. Man goes off to work, man protects his family, a man cares for his family.

A man lives his life around his family, a real man does. Most of these young kids will never know this because they won’t be exposed to one. And then once it becomes a cancer and a rot, well, then it’s just self-perpetuating, and it is sad. I mean, it is irresponsible, oh, it’s easy to do, but it’s irresponsible to blame all of those young people that grow up and turn out as bad as they do, as socially reckless and social anarchists as they do. They have no one there to tell them otherwise because the state has said they don’t need to learn otherwise. This to me is the great sin, moral and otherwise, of the so-called Civil Rights Movement and of the black leadership that leads it and continues to lead it down this path of ruin, and the whites and anyone else that goes along with it and doesn’t raise a hand up and say, dude, stop.

I mean, look at these kids. These are beautiful young kids. These are beautiful young Americans. Never going to have a father. Never going to know what that’s like. So society does this to them.
Children, by and large, are products of their upbringing, their socialization. And when responsible parents have basically been economically written out of the equation there, this is what you get. The thing that I see and that bothers me and ought to bother other people the most is that there is no sign of this slowing down. It is anathema to even bring it up. Woe be to the person that even dares to discuss this.

Obama was supposed to erase all these things. He’s made it worse. And he is intentionally, and his administration, it seems to me, is driving the wedge in there to make sure that it stays this way. They want to incourage young single girls to get pregnant, they need this to happen, to add to the numbers of lazy, parasite, users who will suckle at the gov teet......it means more power to these ego driven libs who want to control everything in sight. They wont be satisfied until they destroy everything moral and rightous!
No, we dont need these famlies to have fathers, chairman bama is your daddy! We dont need to work, we can collect 700 weeks of unemplyment ins....we can apply for an endless supply of food stamps.........I mean its free, right? Don`t forget about your free school loans now, and free homes, cell phones and cars too!

My god is there anything this fed gov wont steal from the productive to give to the 0liability voter? Is there anything we can expect these people to do for themselves???? Or is that too much to ask? Why dont you scumbags just take over all of my private property while your at it, oh wait, thats the master plan, isn`t it???

Now, here’s the politics of what’s going to happen.
The Republicans are going to take the House back in November. I think that they are. I don’t think that any fool would say that they’re not. That’s not going to matter. This is a soap opera that you’re witnessing here. They will get into power. They will not have control of the Senate. They will not be able to repeal anything that Pelosi and Obama and Reid and the rest of these criminals have put on us. And if they are able, by some miracle, to get a repeal of ObamaCare through the House and the Senate, Obama’s going to veto it. It will get vetoed. They do not have the two-thirds majorities to overrule these things. Therefore they will remain the law of the land.

And the only hope then is state nullification; or, as I have said over and over again, if at first you don’t secede, try, try again. And then because the taxes and the punishing regulations and the punishing bills and the punishing rules and the mountains of bureaucrats that have been erected here in Obama’s name, which are not going to be disemployed any time soon – because that’s all going to remain. Economic conditions are not going to appreciate. They’re not going to get better. And when that doesn’t happen, well, then, Ms. Pelosi will be there to go [mimicking Speaker Pelosi], “Oh, see, we told you needed more time to fix it. And now the Republicans have screwed it up.” It’s all a very ingenious plan. So they’re going to do everything they can in the lame duck session. They’re not going to attempt much between now and November. They know that they can’t get away with that because they have to pretend like they care about this November election. They don’t. They’ve already written it off.

Virginia Declaration of Rights

I would bet all the gold in Fort Knox(if theres any left)that obama and all his associates never even read this document, or that they believe that these rights are outdated!

I That all men are by nature equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.

II That all power is vested in, and consequently derived from, the people; that magistrates are their trustees and servants, and at all times amenable to them.

III That government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security of the people, nation or community; of all the various modes and forms of government that is best, which is capable of producing the greatest degree of happiness and safety and is most effectually secured against the danger of maladministration; and that, whenever any government shall be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, a majority of the community hath an indubitable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to reform, alter or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public weal.

IV That no man, or set of men, are entitled to exclusive or separate emoluments or privileges from the community, but in consideration of public services; which, not being descendible, neither ought the offices of magistrate, legislator, or judge be hereditary.

V That the legislative and executive powers of the state should be separate and distinct from the judicative; and, that the members of the two first may be restrained from oppression by feeling and participating the burthens of the people, they should, at fixed periods, be reduced to a private station, return into that body from which they were originally taken, and the vacancies be supplied by frequent, certain, and regular elections in which all, or any part of the former members, to be again eligible, or ineligible, as the laws shall direct.

VI That elections of members to serve as representatives of the people in assembly ought to be free; and that all men, having sufficient evidence of permanent common interest with, and attachment to, the community have the right of suffrage and cannot be taxed or deprived of their property for public uses without their own consent or that of their representatives so elected, nor bound by any law to which they have not, in like manner, assented, for the public good.

VII That all power of suspending laws, or the execution of laws, by any authority without consent of the representatives of the people is injurious to their rights and ought not to be exercised.

VIII That in all capital or criminal prosecutions a man hath a right to demand the cause and nature of his accusation to be confronted with the accusers and witnesses, to call for evidence in his favor, and to a speedy trial by an impartial jury of his vicinage, without whose unanimous consent he cannot be found guilty, nor can he be compelled to give evidence against himself; that no man be deprived of his liberty except by the law of the land or the judgement of his peers.

IX That excessive bail ought not to be required, nor excessive fines imposed; nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

X That general warrants, whereby any officer or messenger may be commanded to search suspected places without evidence of a fact committed, or to seize any person or persons not named, or whose offense is not particularly described and supported by evidence, are grievous and oppressive and ought not to be granted.

XI That in controversies respecting property and in suits between man and man, the ancient trial by jury is preferable to any other and ought to be held sacred.

XII That the freedom of the press is one of the greatest bulwarks of liberty and can never be restrained but by despotic governments.

XIII That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that, in all cases, the military should be under strict subordination to, and be governed by, the civil power.

XIV That the people have a right to uniform government; and therefore, that no government separate from, or independent of, the government of Virginia, ought to be erected or established within the limits thereof.

XV That no free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue and by frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.

XVI That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore, all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other.

Adopted unanimously June 12, 1776 Virginia Convention of Delegates drafted by Mr. George Mason

Free Speech is Dead! Socialist Dictatorship is Alive!

If the U.S. Senate approves President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court, it will be the end of the First Amendment right of free speech and move the United States a giant leap closer to Obama’s goal of making us a socialist nation and becoming America’s first dictator.

Kagan, has only written nine articles in her career and in those writings, she has made her stance on the restriction of free speech clearly evident. Starting with her 1993 University of Chicago Law Review article, “Regulation of Hate Speech and Pornography After R.A.V,” Kagan wrote, “I take it as a given that we live in a society marred by racial and gender inequality, that certain forms of speech perpetuate and promote this inequality, and that the uncoerced disappearance of such speech would be cause for great elation.”

Just having such speech disappear is not enough for nominee Kagan. In her 1996 paper, “Private Speech, Public Purpose: The Role of Government Motive in First Amendment Doctrine”, she actually believes that the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution “is best understood and most readily explained as a kind of motive-hunting.” She went on to support the idea that it is acceptable for the government to restrict any form of speech if it is deemed to be offensive to society or to the government.

In the case of United States v. Stevens, first argued in 2009, the brief, which was signed by Kagan, stated, “Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against its societal costs.”

Does the First Amendment allow for the freedom or restriction of speech to be determined against societal costs? What it does say is, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” (emphasis mine). At the time our Founding Fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights, the term ‘abridging’ meant ‘to deprive’ or ‘diminish’. They understood the importance of giving people the right to openly criticize their government, especially when those criticisms were justifiable. Yet, Elena Kagan is determined to redefine ‘abridging’ to mean that those in charge will have the power and legal right to determine what one can say about the government, about sinful lifestyles or anything else that might be deemed offensive by the leadership or the vocal minority.

But Wait! There’s More!

Why would President Obama want to appoint someone to the U.S. Supreme Court who has had no judicial experience whatsoever?

Perhaps it has something to do with her undergraduate thesis where she wrote how it saddened her that socialism was declining in America, especially for those that wanted to change America. Obama has surrounded himself with socialists, Maoists and Marxists and Elena Kagan would now add one of his socialist groupies to the highest court in the land.

But Wait! There’s More!

Kagan has also openly endorsed and supported giving the office of President of the United States more power and control than the office already has. We have already seen a tremendous increase in presidential powers during the Clinton administration, but Kagan wants to give the president a larger role in regulation of affairs that deal with his own policies and agenda. This increase in power and restriction of speech could be just one step away for establishing President Obama as America’s first dictator.

When you add all of these together, you should be able to see a clear picture of a person that wants to take away our freedom of speech, give more power to the President and who would be overjoyed to see our country become a socialist nation and Obama wants to put on the Supreme Court where she can effectively rule to make these things happen.

Despite what you think of President Woodrow Wilson, he gave us a very wise warning when he said, “The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it. When we resist the concentration of power, we are resisting the powers of death. Concentration of power precedes the destruction of human liberties.”

It is time that Americans stand up and be heard. Everyone needs to contact their U.S. Senator and tell them NOT to approve the appointment of Kagan to the Supreme Court. She is an abomination to everything our Founding Fathers stood for and we need to resist the President’s appointment and let him and everyone else know how anti freedom, anti liberty and anti American Elena Kagan is.

But Wait! There’s More!

Did you know that Elena Kagan, Dean of the Harvard Law School, banned the United States Military from recruiting on the campus of Harvard University? Unbelievable... or is it?

Obama's Labor Secretary Approves of Jobs and Pay Raises For Illegals Despite 10% Unemployment...

America is being crippled by 10% unemployment and what does Obama's Labor Secretary have to say? In a recent public service announcement, Hilda Solis stated, “Every worker in America has a right to be paid fairly, whether documented or not,” Obama's Labor Secretary is encouraging illegal immigration and subsequently stealing jobs from hard working American citizens.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) called Solis’ comments “an explicit invitation for illegal immigrants to bring the resources and power of the Department of Labor to bear against American employers.” The "We Can Help" Web site says the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division is responsible for administering and enforcing some of the nation's most important worker protection laws – and is “committed to ensuring that workers in this country are paid properly and for all the hours they work, regardless of immigration status.”

In a different section of its Web site, the Labor Department states that “employers may hire only persons who may legally work in the United States (i.e., citizens and nationals of the U.S.) and aliens authorized to work in the U.S.” These blatant conflicting statements show that Solis’s liberal agenda is the problem. Illegal immigrants need to be arrested and deported, not rewarded.

Rep. King accused the Obama administration of using the limited resources of American taxpayers on behalf of illegal aliens. “It is shameful that Secretary Solis has to be reminded that her primary duty is owed to the American people, and not to those who have illegally entered our country,” said King. “The Obama Administration needs to realize that the American people have a right to have their immigration laws enforced.” Not until we enforce our current laws and secure our border will Americans be safe and have equal rights in the work place.

What follows is a transcript of Solis’s PSA:

"You work hard, and you have the right to be paid fairly. I'm U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, and it is a serious problem when workers in this country are not being paid every cent that they earn. Remember, every worker in America has a right to be paid fairly, whether documented or not. So, call us -- it is free and confidential -- at 1-866-487-9243. We can help."

Having documentation is not a burden. It provides a safe and civilized society in which to work and live. We welcome legal immigrants in to our country. But those who break our laws show little respect for our society or way of life. Encouraging illegal immigration is not a solution to the problem. Rather, it is a new problem altogether. Hilda should be held accountable for her encouraging the breaking of U.S. laws.

Gulf Coast blowout

From: stewart. beyer

-Something everyone should read about the oil spill, since you can't trust what the federal govt is telling you.

Am still going back and forth to Dallas keeping my toe in the oil business. However, fortunately, I am working on a deepwater project in offshore Ghana and will not be sticking my toe into the Gulf of Mexico . Thus, I will still miss the Thursday luncheons for the foreseeable future.

I know many of you are curious as to what is going on in the Gulf, as I am sure you are aware the politicians and press are not well informed and have no interest to be well informed. I have attached a MS Word file with a sketch of the two relief wells which are being drilled as fast as they can to "kill" the blowout well - Macondo #1. It is a good status of the two wells, one of which is closing in on the blowout. When I finish my Dallas gig, I will do a lunch presentation on the incident.

Also, let me share some statistics and personal thoughts which can put this well into perspective.

a. The U.S. has more than 525,000 producing oil wells in the country. With about 5 million barrels per day produced in the U.S. , this means that the average well in the U.S. produces less than 10 barrels per day and included in that average are prolific wells in Alaska and the Gulf which are capable of producing much more. I would bet the median oil rate of a U.S. well is less than 3 barrels per day. More than 31% of the oil wells in the U.S. according to the DOE produce less than one barrel per day!

b. With the Macondo well belching an estimated 40,000 to 50,000 barrels per day means the Macondo well is capable of flowing more than 4,000 to 5,000 average wells in the U.S! Is there no surprise that fields like this one are the prize being sought after by the industry which cannot drill in shallow waters or much of anywhere in the U.S. anymore? This one well produces about 1% of the entire U.S. production rate and is most likely the most productive well in the country! And probably one of the most productive wells in the world. It is too bad that this field will most likely never be produced following shutting and abandoning the Macondo #1 blowout.

c. The only way the Macondo well can be stopped is by intersecting the well with the relief wells being drilled now. If the "junk shot" or "top kill" method would have stopped the flow or the blowout preventer finally closed, the pressured oil would have just ruptured the shallow geological formations and oil would have been coming up in geysers all over the place for miles and then the only way to stop the flow would have been to allow the reservoir to deplete. And this could have been years! Thus, it is a "good" thing that the "top kill" failed.

d. This next statistic is not to bash our president; but to put things into perspective: When Air Force One is in the air, it consumes jet fuel (which incidentally comes from the Gulf of Mexico ) at the rate of 5 gallons per mile as indicated in data released by the govt. And anywhere the pres goes, there are at least two jets of equal size carrying his cars, golf carts, secret service, guests, press, etc. If you make the calculations, this means that when the president takes a junket in Air Force One, he and his entourage are consuming the entire oil production of approximate 450 average oil wells in the U.S. !

e. Tony Hayward, the beaten down CEO of BP, is a friend of mine who I worked with on our project in Colombia in 1994-1997. He was the Exploration Manager for BP's Bogota office. He has a phD in geoscience with highest honors and has more 28 years experience in technical and management positions with BP, which is a heck of a lot more applicable to his job than community organizing. It would be impossible for him to know the level of detail of what happened on that rig; and Rep. Waxman's questioning just revealed the U.S. government's requirement to place personal blame and focus on something other than the administrations failings on a number of fronts. I contend that the pollution in the Gulf is horrific; but the Gulf will recover. However, the government's overreach into the oil industry as a result of the incident will do more harm to the country in the long run. Waxman et. al. will deal more harm to the country which will never be cleaned up. My advice to Tony Hayward when he met with the congressional panel, and his other public appearances, would have been to have a good speech writer and use a teleprompter. That way he could have kept his foot out of his mouth and look more like a competent chief executive.

f. The blowout was clearly caused by human error and an unintentional accident and combination of unforeseen failures of protective devises which all have levels of redundancy. It is very analogous to the loss of the space shuttle Challenger which was destroyed because of seal failure of the solid fuel rocket booster. When that happened, in spite of engineer in Morton Thiokol (manufacturer of the solid fuel booster) pleading to stop the launch following freezing weather at the launch pad; I did not see the head of NASA butchered in front of Congress and asked to jump on a sword. BP has assured everybody that all legitimate claims will be honored; but I heard today that a homeowner was asking reimbursement for loss of home value as surely his failure to sell his home is the fault of BP. Am sure the hookers in New Orleans will charge BP for the loss of income from the rig workers who will be unemployed for six months. How much of the $20 billion will go to ACORN? Will be interesting to follow this money trail........

The Patriot Act is Not Conservative

If Americans needed another reminder of why the Democratic Party is absolutely worthless, they got it during last week’s Patriot Act extension debate when Senate Majority leader Harry Reid again behaved exactly like the Bush-era Republicans he once vigorously opposed. In 2005, Reid bragged to fellow Democrats, “We killed the Patriot Act.” Today, Reid says that anyone who opposes the Patriot Act might be responsible for the killing of Americans. Dick Cheney now hears an echo and Americans deserve congressional hearings—as to whether Harry Reid is a sociopath, mere liar, or both.

Universal Healthcare is SLAVERY

Supporters of Universal Healthcare want to impose an individual mandate on all working Americans. By doing this, they are sanctioning slavery on the American People. On 09/09/09, President Obama addressed the Congress and the nation, stating that individuals would be required to purchase healthcare. Anyone who does not will be fined up to $1,900, thrown in prison, and fined an additional $25,000. This is a perfect example of government tyranny, and is more properly termed, "fascism." In any program designed to help others, there is always an option to withdraw or not participate. A person who doesn’t want to buy auto insurance can opt not to drive a car. A person who doesn’t want house insurance can rent instead of buying a house. In the case of healthcare, a tax is placed on the right to LIFE itself. We should remember that even the slavemasters of old were interested in the healthiness of their slaves. A person who cannot opt out is not free—he or she is nothing but a slave. Socialist programs like Social Security, Medicare, and the Draft all result in slavery or involuntary servitude. Now is the time to uphold the 13th Amendment by defeating Unconstitutional Healthcare.
