The impresssion Obama and all his media gives is that Cap & Trade is going to punish those big nasty corporations that nobody loves. Look deeper. Fannie Mae has inexplicably acquired a patent on a means of measuring carbon at your home, so they know how much energy and carbon you're using - so you too can pay. Fannie also has the patent that they (or the Gov't) can lock your outlets in your home. Fannie (a mortgage company costing us hundreds of billions a yr) buys the patents for CCX (Climate Exchange) and will have the power to measure, fine and penalize - even shut off our power! Those fines will flow from CCX to The Emerald Cities Collaborative, whose Board of Directors is comprised of scoundrels, all with close ties to Obama, who was on the board of the secretive Joyce Foundation for 6 yrs and funneled $1.6 Mil to CCX to get them early financing. Now, CCX's board has Obama's union pals of AFL/CIO & SEIU, and Apollo - who designed the $787 Bil Stimulus Plan for Obama. Van Jones (Obama's good friend & Green Jobs Czar & self-confessed communist) slinked off when his signature appeared accusing our Gov't of bombing our own towers on 9-11. Jones was tied to Apollo and now reappears, tied to "Green for All" which is also in this den of snakes and thieves, raping the taxpayers in their quest for world power and control. It's unbelievable that the media (other than the one Obama wants to crush) can't find a story, with all these filthy inter-connections of familiar names. Now enters "ShoreBank" of familiar Chicago. It's a "community development" bank that finances "Green" projects. They lost over 100 Mill last yr. The FDIC did not shut them down though because private investors chose this one to "save." It's founder has a community organizing background closely tied to ACORN. The Clintons praised the bank when Bill was in office and the bank's V-Pres was Hillary's college roommate. They say they are a "Green" bank with the slogan, "Let's change the world." That suspect Joyce Found (Obama on Board) is one of the shareholders. The former Exec V-P of Shore was tied (several organizations) to Obama and terrorist Bill Ayers. Howard Stanback is a Shore shareholder and former Bd Chairman of the radical "Woods Fund" in Chicago. Obama and Bill Ayers were also on that radical board. Stanback also worked for imprisoned Tony Rezko, who gave $250,000 to Obama's campaign and gave him a real good deal on a mansion. Also on Shore's board is Adele Simmons, a member of "The Commission on Global Governance" (more on Global Governance later). Adele and Valerie Jarrett (Obama's closest friend and advisor) worked together. One Shore co-founder advised Obama's mother through her ties to "The Ford Fund," where Treas Sec'y, Tim Geithner's father worked with Obama's mother. Did Barry (Barack) and tax-cheat little Timmy play together? The group of lenders keeping Shore afloat include Goldman Sachs (heavily into CCX), Bank of America (BOA) and GE Capital (GE & NBC News & heavily into Cap & Trade). Note that Obama just castigated Goldman publicly and SEIU bussed 500 chanting Union members onto a BOA dignatary's front lawn. Is that Obama/Chicago-style pressure to, "do the right thing?" Cough up some money "for the cause?" Obama's fiery racist Pastor Jeremiah Wright has a $10 Mill loan line of credit at ShoreBank and Van Jones, who doesn't even live near Chicago has an account there. Shore also was given $35 Mill of Stimulus money - not a bailout!
So (after a deep breath) am I paranoid - or is sonething very sinister going on?
Most people agree that all Gov't spends too much and wastes too much and is far too much in debt. Only very serious and painful cutbacks in spending can do anything to change this - at State or Federal levels. People want everything cut that doesn't affect them, but every CUT affects someone (and potentially everyone votes) so even those few politicians that might want to do what MUST be done know it is political suicide. For the life of me, I can't see any possible way out of this dilemma except to let the crap hit the fan - the sooner the better. Only a fool or idiot believes we can survive this endless spending. You can ride this stumbling horse until it's dead or get off, lead it, and help it revive. It may not, but at least you will salvage some pride in the trying. Rip the band-aid off! Let's take charge, be Americans and tough this out - whatever it takes, however long it takes. People will return to family solutions and to their faith. The calming and compassion of both will see them through. Now (that said) - NO ONE will actually DO this. My mind was just meandering - musing, pondering realistic possibilities. So, next we must consider what absolutely MUST be done, but IS possible. As voters we must DEMAND that (from this point forth) every would-be congressman will sign a pledge of Allegiance to our Constitution, and that it will be an imprisonable offense for any politician to spend one nickel more than is covered by revenue in hand. They will pledge to immediately announce to EVERY citizen that ALL free rides are over! Go to work if you want to improve your status or preserve your dignity. That IS NOT the Gov'ts job. It is YOURS! Otherwise, settle for the most meager of provisions. The Gov't will NOW serve meals and provide rooms for those in need. Public education and basic health care (after overhauls) will also be provided for you and your family. No money or coupons will be entrusted - therefore cannot be misused. All politicians and public employees will be made to take an immediate minimal 50% pay cut and benefits. The Gov't employee work force will immediately be cut in half, for starters - adjust the workload and make do. When a politician's public service is over, so is their pay and benefits. They return to the real world and get a job - not become lobbyists. All lobbying will be considered as bribery and all participants will go to jail. We can tackle the thievery and waste in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security by awarding a percentage of the savings to whistle-blowers and jailing offenders, and put strict limits on lawsuits. We need to overhaul the whole public school system too. Have academicians rip the waste out of education, just as doctors can do with all our health care! That's how I would do it, and if we stand tall together WE can do it!
I get sick of politicians constantly playing word games lke we're all too dumb to know what they are doing, or even talking about. Lately the word that rankles me the most is "reform." The dictionary defines it as, "improvement or correction of what is corrupt or defective." So, reform must be good, right? Like health insurance reform, or wall-street or banking reform or (now) immigration reform. It is (to them) just a catch-all term to justify to us, Gov't take-over and control. Like, "You DO want to clean up that which is corrupt or defective, don't you?" How could you NOT be FOR that?" Like - ending Global Warming? If (or once) they SELL you on some mythical evil they can then come to the rescue. They don't WANT to interfere, but they must of course, now take over, mandate and regulate - for the overall good. And they never relinquish any power once seized, regardless of how ineptly they run it. Everything Gov't controls, fails - some sooner, some later. But let's still do it again and again! With all our assinine Gov't spending, and "control freaks" in D.C. - where was our federal protection in an obvious need area? 4000 oil rigs in operation and not one plan of action, or piece of equipment for damage control! Yes, BP was to blame for skimping on known needed precautions. They're business people. They cut corners. Now they will pay. But where were the environmentalist nuts, like those that have taken over California and helped destroy their economy? Why did they not (and do not) pressure the Gov't for precautions and plans of action? But that doesn't excuse all those very highly paid Gov't overseers that again failed to make them comply - all the way to the Presidency. I just knew Obama ("Never let a crisis go to waste") would then clamp down on non-green energy. He has suspended all off-shore drilling and even exploration. What a leader. Obama publicly stated that he and his staff, "were on it from day one - that's all they thought about." And, he said solemnly, "The Fed Gov't is fully engaged and I'm fully engaged." Then "His Brilliance" (who's been on it from day one and just made us all feel secure) was asked whether Birnbaum, the head of MMS's shoddy overseeing (and who just stepped down that same morning) quit or was fired? He didn't retort, "Damned right I fired her." He said he wasn't quite sure what happened there because he was, "busy with some other important stuff" at the time. Again, what a leader! Arizona and Louisiana prove there is no State sovereignty anymore. Louisiana, taking the brunt of this oil disaster couldn't protect its own shores with berms without approval of the biggest meddling Gov't. May 11th they asked permission to immediately build 24 berms. 16 days later they were told they could build only 6, and the Fed would only pay for one! This is bureaucratic paralysis by analysis. Worse yet is that this inept group had no plan of its own. It is the State that will suffer long-term fishery and tourism losses. And Obama knew the decision while he was down there for a few hours for his photo-op, but announced it after he left. His arrival might have been a bit hostile for filming otherwise. He did the same cowardly thing when waiting until friday (and the long weekend) to produce the long-awaited White House response on Sestak - was he offered a job to NOT run against Spector? That gives the smell 3 days to dissipate in D.C. But Obama knew it when asked at his news conference. All that golfing, basketball, socializing with pro-sports teams, and fund-raising dinners during those first 9 days of missing in action were because (like he told McCain) HE can multi-task. Bush was far more on the scene with Katrina in Louisiana than Obama is now, but all the media would say is, "Why does Bush hate black people?" When HW Bush was president (21 yrs ago) he was reamed by the media for his Exxon oil spill slow response (still quicker than Obama's) and he had only been in office 2 months. Obama has had 15 months to "correct" Bush's regulatory procedures that he blames this one on. Will Bush still be responsible in Obama's 2nd term? Scary thought isn't it? He's leaving it up to the Puerto Ricans to decide if they want to become the 51st state - another 4 million democrat votes await.
What do you think of that Mosque (extra big and ostentatious) that the Muslims (most of the funding coming from abroad) want to build only 500 feet away from "Ground Zero and our fallen towers? There is varied media rationale for this endeavor, but what jumps right out at me is, "In your face, America!" I see them defiant, laughing and wanting their loud "Call to Worship" echoing over our Hallowed Ground. Remember, their founder was a Warlord. Don't you see this as an outrageous affront to America? And Obama appointed two devout muslims into our Dept of Homeland Security. Arif Alikhan is Asst Sec'y Policy Development. Kareem Shora (born in Syria) is a DHS Advisory Council member and ADC Nat Exec Director. I'm fairly sure they're fine people but the many kooks in their hostile religion do make me nervous in OUR Security.
How about that Deputy Sec'y of State, Posner's pitiful, pathetic pandering in Red China? While "visiting" he felt Obama's need to apologize for Arizona's behavior - to possibly the worst abuser of human rights on the planet. Somehow our enforcement of our border equates to their atrocious transgressions. Who IS this pip-squeak speaking for, and embarrassing us? And Joe Biden tells a Brussels, Belgium crowd that Brussels is "the true catalyst for freedom in the world." Didn't WE emancipate all of Europe - including little ole Brussels? I can't believe all the verbal abuse this nation puts up with, without indignant rebuttal by those we elect to speak up for us. The United Nations building in New York is a disgrace - nothing but a soap-box for every crackpot, despot and lunatic exhibitionist to take cheap shots at America and its people. Leaders of Iran, Venezuela and Libya quickly come to mind, but there are plenty of others. When the President of Mexico recently berated US on our immigration policy and securing our border, to standing democrat congressional applause I wanted to throw up! What a disgusting display by supercilious as-es, completely out of touch with their electorate!
I remind you of Obama's desire to be powerful in Global Governance - not just American. As he told the Europeans in his apology tour, he is a "Citizen of the WORLD." In a new World Order, as President of the U.S. he knows HE would be looked to first, and (I feel) has been setting the stage. This is what the Exalted One feels is his destiny - his right! Obama loves the useless United Nations, that is FOR global banning of all guns to ordinary citizens, and insistant on Global Governance for all. Just as our Fed Gov't has ignored our Constitution and steadily overtaken each individual State's sovereignty, the U.N. plans (with Obama's and Progressives' help) to take away Our Nation's sovereignty! We must wake up fast - turn apathy and disinterest into anger and firm resolve, or succumb to world dominance! It took years for founders (as many diverse states) to agree upon the Bill of Rights, and reluctantly allow for a Federal Gov't to oversee us all. The States feared that one day the Big Gov't they fled from and then fought and defeated, would someday again rear its ugly dominating head - well, here it is! They acquiesced only when they were assured they could secede later, if they didn't like how it worked. Well, it isn't working but today states are not allowed to leave. Otherwise, they would be seceding in droves. Now, back to the U.N.. They define Governance as, "Rules and practices that set limits on behavior of individuals, organizations, and companies." To that revealing horse manure, I say the U.N. will limit THIS American's behavior over his cold dead body! And, the U.N. says, "Private land ownership is a principle instrument of accumulation of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice." Hmmm, Obama and his 2 Supreme Court appointees (and a whole lot of Congress) are FOR "social justice." Obama addressed the West Point cadets recently and said, "The international order we seek is one that can resolve the challenges of our times." I say, "Who (besides himself) is seeking "international order?" To Hell with ALL others if it costs America ITS sovereignty, and way of life! The US Navy now runs a TV ad that proclaims them, "A Global Force for good." And Obama speaks of a "New International Order," being "Citizens of the World" and strong institutions with Global commitment to progress. Obama's buddy, Andy Stern (SEIU Union head) says, "We need a Global Gov't. He says, "Today I send this message to every emerging Global Corp: justice, family, community, and Union are the same in every language... and wherever you go and whatever you do, a new Global Labor movement is coming to find you." Al Gore says, "We will drive the change through Global Governance and Global Agreements." Bill Clinton talked at Yale about Global Community, and Hillary talked about "Global Citizens" and "Global Education." More and more we are all being indoctrinated by injection of these new terminologies and phrases - from many directions and many respected people. Time and repetition continually lessens initial offensiveness. Desensitization is a ploy of the devious. Obama and Progressives are devious. It's like being bombarded by obscene violence in video games. In time, that horrific violence and gore will seem less obscene - eventually tolerable, not as shocking. Weaker minds might then consider committing an act not even imaginable before.
It is known that many hundreds of very bad people are coming into the U.S. from Mid-East terrorist countries, and much litter evidence shows that members of every terrorist group lurking out there, is coming. They are diabolical, calculating and determined to harm us - while WE are apathetic and lax to the point of stupid. Our lazy fat-cat politicians bluster and bicker, as would-be butchers pour through our inane open-door border. These "politically correct" pompous buffoons ignore the majority that are screaming, "Shut and lock the damned door!" We will pay for this tomfoolery - and pay dearly - mark my words well! Heap your disgust and ire heavily on the mainly-followed media who willfully lead their followers astray - they know full well the extreme and imminent danger. I'll never believe they don't. Arizona State Senator, Sylvia Allen (explaining why they passed their Bill - SB 1070) says, people who live within 60-80 miles of the border have been terrorized for years. They regularly listen to gunfire in the night. They fear leaving their family alone and if all leave, there will be nothing left upon return. One rancher testified 300-1200 pass his ranch per day, vandalizing, stealing and cutting down fences. Those coming now, are much different than previous years. The last 2 yrs he has found 17 dead bodies and 2 Koran "Bibles." Another said (daily) drugs are brought over, military-style, strung out for over a mile (with machine guns) and will kill anyone in their way. 2 illegals came to him, shot. They were forced to carry drugs - then shot. Allen says the border patrol is 60 miles off the border, at check points, doing nothing to stop the invasion. They're not allowed to use force. Those they do catch are returned to Mexico's side - to repeat the process. 80% of law enforcement killed or injured are by illegals. AZ has a $3.5 Bill deficit giving them services, health care and education. She says, "Living in America is not a right just because you can walk across the border." No national media will say a damned word, so the insanity will go on & on.
