In this issue, you will notice I am declaring war on mainstream media. They are possibly a worse threat to America than Obama and his cronies, whose roughshod tactics and outright continuous lies would not remotely be possible without a hugely corrupt media! Now, with that disclosure, my letter. I am convinced Americans are going to soon be hearing a lot about the European-style VAT (Value Added Tax). It is like a national sales tax but built into the price of goods and services - sneaky like - like this administration. If you were regularly charged an extra 20% at the cash register you would be even more angry, more often than if it was hidden within your purchase price - that is VAT. It's a psychological ploy. Businesses will, in effect, become tax collectors for the Fed Gov't. That extra cost of record keeping will also be passed on to the consumer. England's VAT is 20% and several countries over there are at 25%! Plus they pay income taxes like we do. This VAT will anger even those that have "chosen" to be "poor" and happily accept Obama's handouts. Everything on McDonalds' menu may soon jump 20% or more. Oh, they wont START taking 20%. They will start lower to acclimate you or "ease" you into it - but we will catch up to Europe fast. That Tooth Fairy has teeth (the one financing all these "goodies for votes") and is about to bite, especially that 50% that pay nothing to ride. They're about to join the club. "Pay more at the store" IS taxes - paid to Obama's coffer to re-distribute as he deems fit, to whom he deems worthy. Of course, history shows VAT always triggers more Gov't spending and even more taxes. But this time it will be different - right? Oh yeah, it has also proven to slow economies and kill jobs - sounds tailor-made for Obama's subversive plan to me. As the Pros and Cons are argued (the B.S. game is played) in the months ahead remember this. Many studies have been done. It has proven to be terrible, but politicians will spin it, the media will deny you the facts and truth (like health care) and help Obama (in the end) enjoy another victory parade! Sit back and watch the show, knowing ahead that the media (other than FOX) will distort and lie to see it through. Ironically, we are now in so deep it is about the only way to fund all these "entitlements" created by a stupid regime that will NOT cut irresponsible spending. And the very nature of more easy revenue in an idiot's hand promotes even MORE idiotic spending!
I've never seen a president more bent on insulting our allies, befriending our enemies, and apologizing to everyone that will listen - all while decreasing our nuclear weaponry, defenses and retaliatory options. It is no wonder that we are perceived as weak and command no respect from even 3rd-rate countries. Barack (who even changed his own name from Barry) seems extremely comfortable and sympathetic in the presence of Muslims and Islamic believers. Ever since he went to Cairo (made his flowery speach) and promised a "new beginning" in the relationship between the U.S. and the Muslim world I've seen an ever-softening in his foreign policy and rhetoric toward everything Muslim - especially terrorism. He does his famous (or infamous) name or term changing to soften an image we all know and use (accurate and familiar) once again, now saying don't call it "Islamic extremism" - it offends good Islams! I will acknowledge the obvious. Bush was not always the most tactful in diplomacy and sometimes used ill-advised terminology, but I always knew he was FOR America and he meant what he said. The rest of the world knew it too, and we were all safer for it. I get really disturbed by obvious things and happenings I can see with my own eyes. I don't believe anything the lying mainstream media tells us anymore. I know they have a dirty agenda and are in lock-step with our sympathizing president. But when I see tens of thousands of Muslims congregating in one specific area (like Dearborn, Mi) and systematically taking over the local Gov'ts and schools (by increasing population growth and control) I don't have to be hit over the head to get the picture. In my opinion far too many of these people didn't immigrate here to assimilate and become Americans. They came to become little Muslim countries inside America and under the protection of our Constitution. They (except for their schooled youth) have little interest in even speaking English other than to become more adept in proclaiming their new rights, as technically new "Americans." Rights never afforded them from whence they came, but to whom they still hold allegiance. Quick facts: 80% of Oslo, Norway's shelters are muslim women fleeing abuse. Danish muslims are 5% of the population but 40% of the welfare. Switzerland is 20% muslim now - Amsterdam has a muslim majority. 70% of French prisoners are muslims. The 4 London muslim bombers that killed 56 in 7/05 had received $1 million in welfare. Also note that their Islamic faith tells them it is OK to rape, beat and kill ANY non-muslims. Let's all welcome the "Religion of Peace." On 4/10/06 Libya's Moammar Gadhafi said, "We have 50 million muslims in Europe. They will turn it into a muslim continent within a few decades." I believe that totally and fear for us here. And remember, that "Mohammad" they worship, was a war-lord that told them to kill non-muslims (not exactly Saint-like). I am told he was a pedophile who married a 6 year old girl but (they say) didn't have sex with her until she was 9. We had better have eyes and ears in every mosque and muslim school in America.
I invite you to read the garbage written by Senator Carl Levin in our local "Avalanche" regarding our new Health Care Reform. He takes his bows alongside Obama, Pelosi and Reid, telling how great it is. Don't just read his drivel and propaganda crap, clip it out and save the evidence. In 10 years (like the others) he will deny saying it at all, but we will still be long-suffering as a nation for his (and his friends) idiotic near-criminal misdeeds. Nobody is this stupid at these political levels. They do it knowing it is wrong and in defiance of the People's protests, our Constitution and ethical procedure. I am sick of, "It's politics - everyone does it." I say clean up this crap NOW or we, The People go back to hot tar and feathers and wooden stockades to publicly humiliate all arrogant a--es misusing power AFTER purposely lying to GET elected. No respect given - no respect due.
Several thousand demonstrators, March 20th, protested across the street from the White House. They burned and stomped on our American Flag among other things but mainstream media (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, NY Times, LA Times) all reported nothing. Why? The Washington Post didn't report on it in their own back yard, but is all over any perceived impropriety at any Tea Party anywhere in the country. It was staged by A.N.S.W.E.R., a far-left group that says "Capitalism is organized crime!" and demands "Legalization Now!" of all illegal aliens. They demand the jailing of all "racist vigilante Minutemen" along the border. ANSWER has strong ties to the Marxist (WWP) Workers World Party. Reminds me of SEIU's Andy Stern's, "Workers of the World, unite!" declaration. But it is right across the street from Andy and the W.H. and seems what Obama and the media supports, so why not give them lots of the free press they crave? Or is this just a bit too open and honest at this time? WWP is a revolutionary Communist political party (with roots in Stalin's Soviet Union) now based in the U.S. and founded in 1959 by Sam Marcy. He split from the Socialist Workers Party to support the "Progressive Party" (sound familiar?) and the positive view they held of the Chinese Revolution led by Mao Tse-Tung. Remember that photo of that commie-red decorative Christmas ball with Mao's face on it on Obama's W.H. Christmas tree? I'm not certain it's not now a W.H. "Holiday" tree, are you? Anyway, does it seem there is a jumble of key words here, like Marxist, Revolutionary, Socialist, Mao and Progressive? The WWP was a strong advocate of the militant Black Panther racists and Weather Underground bombers, Bill Ayers and his fellow founder. Obama knows both of them well. Is all this crud taking place just outside the W.H. (and unreported by the media) just brothers reaching out to brothers inside the W.H. and looking for a little "love?" But maybe rushing the schedule a little? And yet another branch or tentacle of ANSWER & WWP is the Party of Socialism and Liberation (PSL). They are strongly tied to Arab and Muslim Islamist groups and totally anti-Israel, a lot like the "vibes" our president is giving off. FIST (Fight Imperialism Stand Together) is a youth-chapter spin-off that worships Che, the Cuban Revolutionary. They DEMAND their rights to everything for just having to be born in an "oppressive" America! But all this is not "newsworthy." Get those reporters and writers after those rowdy grandmothers at those Tea Parties! Those are angry dangerous mobs - that even leave no litter behind. By the way, did you hear about the bullet shot through the window of a republican congressman's office building? Probably not. And check out the website (crashtheteaparty.org) which targets the Tea Party movement and members. The site calls all to "dismantle - demolish, come join in on the fun" just like instructed in the Saul Alinsky book, "Rules for Radicals" - so favored by Obama's gang.
President Obama is so upset that he can't control Glenn Beck of FOX News (the only TV station that will question what he says and does) he has 3 of his closest advisors actively pressuring, to boycott all advertising for that network, trying to destroy him! He is so intolerant of ANY criticism of him, so insecure, so obsessed with ONE disobedient station - having SIX servile compliant stations cannot soothe him. I think he has become psychotic. How unscrupulously and scummy low can a president sink, to send out his junk-yard dogs to silence that one and only dissenting voice. Talk about telling US where we can stick our Constitution and First Amendment! It does not matter that he (so far) fails - it matters that he tries - and he will ever keep trying. That is sinister! I think he is a vicious, vindictive, tyrant-in-the-making, if you are even half-looking at his actions. Forget his damned words and smile. SEE what he DOES, time after time, and be afraid. I cannot contain my contempt for this slime we call "the press" or media. They allow this persecution of Beck (one of their own - and there will be others) in order to kneel at His alter. They could stop this unsavory character and his ego-antics in a heartbeat, if they had a heart, or a spine or one bit of integrity. Just say, "Stop it. We want to support you, but you're going too far, too fast." But HE (like terrorists) just gets bolder when he senses weakness or capitulation. His Chicago toughness is just a facade. HE can't take one particle of the criticism and PRESS abuse Bush had to endure every day for 8 years! Obama mercilessly attacks even a single critic (remember Joe the plumber?) like a tyrant might do, abusing power from the highest office in the world AND using the media like a puppeteer. Is that a fair fight, Barack Hussein? Or more like cowardly Saddam Hussein? Folks, I am telling you, he intends to shut down FOX TV, Radio talk shows (conservative & Christian), and control the Internet - all under his coming "Fairness Doctrine," AND take our GUNS!
Another Supreme Court Justice is about to be appointed. We all, better know well how this one stands on Gun Control or our Right to Bear Arms - loud and clear. But I fear we wont. No one really asked the last one. I know Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Sotomayor (his first selection) believe it is NOT our right. They want a world-wide ban like the U.N. - beware! Too many Supremely important decisions affecting us all are now passed by a mere 5-4 vote - little more than a coin-flip! If gun ownership (which I smell coming) is denied us... THAT could be one riotous ruling! More virulent than Pearl Harbor - in underestimating the outcome or consequences!
Obama became president because WHITE Americans voted him in. That's a fact, so knock off the RACISM B.S.! They talk and talk about epithets and spitting without one iota of proof - video or audio. These good Americans at Tea Parties protest because he's a lousy president, defying The People's wishes, and they're damned sorry they voted for him! But the lying B.S. never quits. That is a technique right from the dirty Marxist Alinsky handbook that Obama follows religiously while using mainstream media lap-dogs as his bullhorn. Say it loudly, say it over and over, and most people will think - it must be true. Think is a bad choice of words.
Under Obama the Gov't is gobbling up and controlling private industry. The $787 Billion Stimulus Bill was to stimulate the economy for job growth and (Obama said) to prevent an unemployed rate of 8%. Now it is spun as a "jobless recovery" to explain 9.7% and we should "learn" to accept a "new normal" of 8-10%. Sell that to those seriously seeking work. So was that $787 Bill meant to be welfare funds to buy votes and long-term dominance - also control over private industry? Obama has direct ownership or control (so far) of about half of our total economy, which a few years ago was 100% private! 18% was just delivered as his Health Care Bill. Plus total control now of Student Loan financing. Before this, through acquisition of Fannie & Freddie over 50% of all mortgages in America are held by the Gov't. And don't forget the Banks, AIG (largest insurer in the U.S.), G.M. and Chrysler. If he gets Cap & Trade passed with carbon emissions and environmental control he will dictate to virtually all our industries - therefore to us - our new Dictator!
About that Student Loan interest rate monopoly Obama just got. He will rape the students with an already declared 4% profit mark-up. He will give the money freely, get them deeply in debt with interest charges (with which he will finance other programs) and later maybe offer them a way out IF they work for him, in Gov't. Always underhanded and calculating, is he.
Superintendent Michelle Rhee of awful Wash D.C. area schools has fought for years to improve the student's plight. In 2008 she offered a $10,000 bonus and a 20% raise to teachers OR a $10,000 bonus and a 45% raise with bonus possibilities up to $131,000 in earnings tied to student performance. In exchange teachers would have to forfeit their "tenure" protection. Rhee said, "I thought this is brilliant... I'm going to pay teachers twice as much. Who could not be in favor of that? But people went ballistic." Getting incentive pay required giving up near-absolute job security. "That, is when the crap hit the fan!" That same teacher's union lobbied to kill the $7,500 voucher program, so very successful and loved by parents and students (mostly low-income blacks and hispanics). SHAME everywhere! And in bankrupt California teachers get pensions of 60, 70, $80,000 per year. Over 3000 get over $100,000. They can Retire & Rehire at the same job after age 54 and get another pension. City and State employees retire early and make more money (for life) NOT working than those working and paying their benefits! Insane! And happening in other States, too.
Tax Credits have grown so much that a family of four (two childred under 17) earning $50,000 will pay NO Fed income tax. There is a standard deduction of $11,400 and 4 exempt X $3,600 each, leaving taxable income of $24,000 ($2,769 tax) - minus 2 X $1,000 child tax credits and an $800 "Making Work Pay" credit (married filing jointly) = $31 tax Refund!
That Qatari diplomat that smoked in the airplane lavatory and confronted by Air Marshalls joked he was trying to light his shoe. He was here to visit an imprisoned Qatar terrorist. Fighter planes were summoned. He had "diplomatic immunity" so couldn't even be arrested. I say every unamused person on that plane should have had the right to at least punch him in the face when leaving the aircraft. And all those pompous jerks living at the U.N. building in N.Y. City with immunity and tearing up hundreds of parking tickets, laughing and mocking the U.S. - I say blow up that U.N. building and tell them to conduct business in Europe!
