Scozzafava drops out, Vote for Doug Hoffman a Candidate Who Stands Up For Freedom & Liberty

I guess Dede's so called fighting heart just wasn't in it all the way. She has dropped out of the NY-23 race. Here is Scozzafava's full statement .  I guess she just can't hack it when the temperature rises and gets fired up. She's decided to cool her heels and watch the true conservative candidate run to the finish line. Doug Hoffman, The Conservative Party candidate running in the special election should have been the GOP candidate right from the beginnning. The people have spoken loud and clear and made it known that Scozzafava was a liberal and falls more in line with liberalism and Democratic policies much more so than Republican, or conservative policies. But, I am utterly filled with joy and amazement that Dede is doing the right thing by suspending her campaign and therefore allowing Doug Hoffman a really good opportunity and much better chance to win against the Democrat Bill Owens on Tuesday. Doug Hoffman supports protecting citizens' right to life, liberty, freedom and pursuit of happiness. He believes, and stands up for conservative values. Vote to preserve our freedom and the American Way. Vote for Doug Hoffman.

Cultural Imperialism, The Catholic Church & Africa

In my class, called The Developing World, we are actually talking about this very subject, although not in relation to the Catholic Church. Its good to hear that the Church is speaking and standing up for unity of the family in Africa. The World Bank refers to Africa as the world's foremost development challenge. The number of people in this region living in extreme poverty has almost doubled since 1980. Over 300 million people lack access to clean water, and 450 million have inadequate sanitation. Since 1990, U.S. investment in Africa has mainly been donated to countries like Egypt or Nigeria whose countries can contribute resources to the world, or help with security related to fighting terrorism, but not so much to the countries in Africa that would help the poorest of the poor.

Two differing perspectives as to reasons why Africa is struggling is:

Externalists argue that Africa's problems and solutions are based on factors outside Africa.
They believe this is due to colonialism and globalism.

Internalists argue that problems and solutions are internal. They believe it is due to corrupt leadership in Africa.

One other theory that I learned of earlier is called the Dependencia Theory. This is the belief that the industrialized North (Developed Nations) has created a neocolonial relationship with the South. The Developing World has become dependent upon the industrialized nations for capital investment and foreign aid.

I believe that the problems related to Africa's development could be both external and internal. I don't know whether I agree with the Dependencia Theory, or not but it could be possible that the industrialized nations are trying to keep the wealth for themselves instead of caring about the needs of the Developing countries, and the poor. What do you think?

Shots Fired at Lou Dobbs Home While He fights to Keep U.S. Sovereignty

A big H/T goes out to both MAINFO and Randy's Right for this video and post.
Lou Dobbs is fighting to keep U.S. sovereignty.  These groups promoting illegal means of intimidation just so that they can get laws passed that would make illegal immigrants in the U.S. be considered legal American citizens' are despicable.  Lou Dobbs has a right to free speech and to stand up for America. But these people who fired a shot into his home are outrageous and have broken the law to make a warped and wrong - headed point. This crap must stop!!!  We are fighting to keep the American Way of life. The United States has a right to protect its borders. The correct way to come to become an American citizen is through legal means, not sneaking over fences, or sneaking by border agents to cross the border from Mexico into the United States.

We have just learned that someone has fired a gun at the home of Lou Dobbs, with his wife just a few feet away from the incident. The gunfire followed a series of threatening phone calls.

Lou Dobbs is being targeted by the pro-illegal alien groups and pundits who feel that Dobbs is stopping Amnesty from passing.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti Defamation League, the National Council of La Raza, Media Matters, and Geraldo Rivera of Fox News are using false information to foment hatred towards Lou Dobbs or any American who speaks out against Amnesty or illegal immigration.

They have pushed for Lou Dobbs to be fired and since CNN has refused to do that some people are now turning to violence to try and achieve their goals.

The lies and hate coming from these radical pro-illegal alien groups is now manifesting in the form of gunfire fired into the occupied home of an innocent multi-racial family.
Lou Dobbs is a great American who is standing up for the people of the United States and sharing information with the public that the elites want censored.
Here is the Audio of Lou Dobbs telling the tale of this gunfire into his home.

Please share this video with others, make supportive comments, and add to your favorites to spread the word!

Health Insurance Profits NOT EVIL, Democrats Demonize Profits of Anyone but Themselves

From Political Integrity. com here is an interesting article on the not so evil profits of health insurance companies:
Oh, Nancy Pelosi and the progressive liberals of Congress…how is it you have come to hate money so much when you yourself are awash in it?

Said Nancy: “I’m very pleased that (Democratic leaders) will be talking, too, about the immoral profits being made by the insurance industry and how those profits have increased in the Bush years.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who also welcomed the attention being drawn to insurers’ “obscene profits.”

Even here you feel the childish need to mention Bush. Tsk, tsk, Nancy. Do you really want us to put our magnifying glasses on you and compare notes?

Remember, Insurance Companies are evil. They are drunk on the profits they have so ruthlessly yielded and need to be destroyed! Where’s my pitchfork and torch? Behold an article from the AP, gasp!, and judge for yourselves who is really talking smack and who is really trying to make a living.

From the From AP.

WASHINGTON – In the health care debate, Democrats and their allies have gone after insurance companies as rapacious profiteers making “immoral” and “obscene” returns while “the bodies pile up.”
But in pillorying insurers over profits, the critics are on shaky ground. Ledgers tell a different reality.

Health insurance profit margins typically run about 6 percent, give or take a point or two. That’s anemic compared with other forms of insurance and a broad array of industries, even some beleaguered ones.

Profits barely exceeded 2 percent of revenues in the latest annual measure. This partly explains why the credit ratings of some of the largest insurers were downgraded to negative from stable heading into this year, as investors were warned of a stagnant if not shrinking market for private plans.

Insurers are an expedient target for leaders who want a government-run plan in the marketplace. Such a public option would force private insurers to trim profits and restrain premiums to compete, the argument goes. This would “keep insurance companies honest,” says President Barack Obama.

The debate is loaded with intimations that insurers are less than straight, when they are not flatly accused of malfeasance.

The insurers may not have helped their case by commissioning a report that looked primarily at the elements of health care legislation that might drive consumer costs up while ignoring elements aimed at bringing costs down. Few in the debate seem interested in a true balance sheet.

A look at some claims, and the numbers:

Laura Ingraham Slams Charlie Gibson & Fox's Ratings Soar

Laura Ingraham on ABC's "This Week" slammed Charlie Gibson over his incompetence, or willful ignorance in knowing absolutely nothing about the ACORN scandal.  On the Roundtable they discussed the White House's war on Fox News.  I absolutely love how Fox's ratings are soaring like an eagle above all the buzzards attempting to be news networks.  Z of The Baltimore Sun described CNN & MSNBC as not being in the same galaxy as Fox News, and I agree with that analysis.

Here is a video of this week's Roundtable and a link to ratings showing that Fox News is blowing the rest of the news networks out of the water. These other networks are not even close to catching up to Fox's tail. MSNBC & CNN are like turtles going in slow motion who haven't got a damn clue about legitimate reporting.

Obama Fox Hunting & Keeps General McChrystal Waiting

General McChrystal has been waiting... And waiting .... For the "indecisive one" to give an answer to his request for over 2 months. As Obama acts like a school-boy on a teeter-totter, and as Karl Rove describes Obama's indecisiveness as Wobbly our troops are waiting for their commander-in-chief to send the additional troops to help them defeat Al-Qaeda.

Obama has been on the prowl hunting Fox instead of actually focusing on his priorities of being a commander-in-chief and granting General McChrystal's request. Obambi needs to listen to the General whom he appointed as the commander in Afghanistan. Obambi either needs to send more troops to Afghanistan, or bring our troops home before they are endangered further due to Obambi's indecision and him being a weak leader.

Obama is in bed with the same media and Democratic Party who wanted the U.S. to fail in Iraq. Obama is still in bed with the MSM who wants the U.S. to surrender in defeat in Afghanistan rather than properly securing this area of the Middle East in order to stop the breeding of terrorism as best we can. I believe that Obama is putting politics above both the safety of the lives of our soldiers and of the United States. Obama called the War in Afghanistan a "war of necessity" but as soon as he realizes that the obstacles are tougher than he thought, the Obamapussy wanes, hides, and is indecisive proving that he is a weak President.

Cass Sunstein Revealed as a Radical Nutjob Communist

Cass Sunstein was revealed as being a grade A, #1 kook, far leftist, radical, communist nutjob on Fox. The man wants trees and chickens to be able to sue a person. What a lunatic moron. Gee, look at one more nutjob who surrounds Obama.

 Fox News Reveals Cass Sunstein as a Radical

Goverment-Run Health Care: Reality Horror Story #1

Gov’t Health Care Horror Story: Lindsay McCreith

Ontario, Canada’s Lindsay McCreith traveled to the US to have a brain tumor removed. Why? Because the government-run health care system in Canada told him he could wait… a bit… well, actually, they said he could wait more than a year for it to be biopsied and removed. In the US, it took 2 weeks and the biopsy showed it was cancerous. McCreith figures if he waited in Canada for a year he might not be here telling us his story.

A Bunch of Commies in the Obama Administration

 The laundry list of Obama's Czars and White House adminstration officials who are communist, and admirers of murderous thug communists continues to grow each day. I wonder how many more communists in the Obama administration will be revealed in the days ahead.

Here is an article by Laura Hollis called, They're ALL Communists at Enjoy

Back when people were tippy-toeing around the “s” word (“socialist”), and before he was elected, I called out Obama’s basic political inclinations for what they are - communist.

Though plenty pooh-poohed this, and called it extreme or unsubstantiated, there was ample proof in Obama’s own writings, his interviews, and the political leanings of his mentors (Saul Alinsky, Frank Marshall Davis), his pastor (Jeremiah Wright) and his friends. It’s absurd to hear people say now that Obama is governing differently than he campaigned. If you think that, you weren’t listening.

But those who still harbor any doubts need only look at his team of “advisors.”

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn is the most recent Obamirror. In the address so many have been airing recently, she offered Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong as an inspiration to students who might need to “figure out how to do things that have never been done before.” Well, golly - a man who “figured out” how to murder 70 million Chinese certainly gets points for novelty.

Before Dunn, it was ousted “green jobs czar” Van Jones, a self-admitted communist.

“Science czar” John Holdren has written of the possible need (and constitutionality) of mandatory sterilization and forced abortions to forestall whatever crisis du jour he and his colleagues Paul and Anne Ehrlich were predicting back in the 1970s (The coming ice age! Catastrophic food shortages! Death to billions!)

“Regulatory czar” Cass Sunstein has argued in favor of government regulations banning hunting and eating meat, humans representing animals in court to protect their “rights,” government intervention to ensure that the “constitutional guarantee of free speech is adequately serving democratic goals,” (whatever those are) and “libertarian paternalism,” whereby government controls the choices you make. (Late comedian George Carlin would have had a field day with that oxymoronic suggestion.)

And none of this even mentions the laundry list of tax cheats.

These appointments are routinely characterized as amateurish leadership; examples of poor vetting. This would be laughable were it not so obviously false. How many of Obama’s advisors have to be exposed as communists and Marxists before some of the duller-witted among us admit not only that there is a pattern here, but that it is deliberate, and reflects the leanings of the White House?

Connect the dots, people. It’s not that Jones, Dunn, Sunstein et al were not properly vetted; it’s that they were. It’s not that Obama wasn’t familiar enough with their viewpoints; it’s that he was. These people were not chosen despite their views; they were chosen precisely because their views coincide with Obama’s own. If it walks like a communist, talks like a communist, and espouses state control in the name of “the people” like a communist, it’s a communist.

In February of this year, Newsweek giddily proclaimed, “We are all socialists now!” But Obama is no mere socialist. A socialist just wants your money; a communist wants complete control of your life. Some questioned the tone of my October 2008 column when I wrote it; how temperate it looks now in light of the first nine months of the Obama administration.

Obama has nationalized banks and car companies, fired the chief executive of a major corporation, appointed unaccountable ministers to set salaries for executives in private industry, castigated and threatened secured bondholders and run roughshod over their contract rights in favor of political patronage, spent nearly a trillion dollars in “stimulus” legislation that was loaded with payback and pork, proposed “cap-and-trade” legislation that will confiscate American wealth and transfer it to third world nations, many of whom are run by leftist dictators. And his pièce de résistance would be a government takeover of the entire health care industry in the United States, the crowbar by which government will be forced into every aspect of our lives from birth to death.
All of this has been accomplished by deceit, trumped up indignation, and demonization of private enterprise and business leaders – classic Marxist propaganda. But it is still not enough. Too many Americans still oppose Obama’s attempts to take over the American health care industry (54% according to the latest Rasmussen poll). Over 40% now “strongly disapprove” of Obama’s performance as President. Hundreds of thousands have turned out at “tea parties,” townhalls, and a march on Washington. Resistance is growing

Another White House Mao Lover - Ron Bloom the Manufacturing Czar

OMG, Another White House administration official is a Mao Lover. What a bunch of freakin nuts we have in the White House! Another radical aligned with Obama. The radical Obama administration- not normal, or in the mainstream at all.

BEHOLD: Video of Ron Bloom, Obama’s manufacturing czar, talking about the free market being nonsense and discussing Mao Tse-Tung. You know, the usual topics that seem to appeal to the folks Obama likes to hang out with.

Keith Tryin To Flex on Rush (video)

First, I would like to note that Keith Olbermann, the sycophant that he is, needs to take a trip to the deep, blue sea. I think the man(and I use that term lightly) needs to be dunked underwater for several minutes. That would help his brain to go into detox mode, and remove all of the liberal toxins that are infecting his brain. Then, he can start over from scratch, and be a "new" person with common sense, dignity, self-respect, and most importantly, be a conservative.

An Email I Received From Mitchell Blatt Hit a Nerve: Anita Dunn, Rush Limbaugh & Freedom of Speech

Today, I received an email from Mitchell Blatt who claims to be a conservative but to me his email was pretty peculiar. This particular email hit a nerve. It just sounded off a red alert in my brain that said, this doesn't sound like a conservative talking, or what a conservative would post.

Here is both the email and the post:
Mitchell Blatt said:
This week's column is about the rush to judgment political activists of both colors make when someone exercises their free speech rights to say something. (How do you like the pun? Ha, Ha, Ha!)

The pun is for Rush, of course, who was attacked with fake quotes, but nonetheless is also attacked for real quotes that are controversial, but shortly thereafter, conservatives attacked Anita Dunn for having the audacity to quote a Mao quote that was originally quoted by Lee Atwater.

This column isn't in support of Anita Dunn generally but in support of free speech. Yes, I am defending someone for free speech who attacked FOX News over free speech. That's what free speech is about.

This week's column is about the rush to judgment political activists of both colors make when someone exercises their free speech rights to say something. (How do you like the pun? Ha, Ha, Ha!)

The pun is for Rush, of course, who was attacked with fake quotes, but nonetheless is also attacked for real quotes that are controversial, but shortly thereafter, conservatives attacked Anita Dunn for having the audacity to quote a Mao quote that was originally quoted by Lee Atwater.

This column isn't in support of Anita Dunn generally but in support of free speech. Yes, I am defending someone for free speech who attacked FOX News over free speech. That's what free speech is about.

Okay, so here's the column:

Mark Steyn starts off his latest National Review column first by quoting Rush Limbaugh exercising his free speech rights then by quoting Anita Dunn, Obama administration Attack FOX Czar, exercising her free speech rights.

Naturally, his cause is to defend Rush and to demonize Dunn for quoting Lee Atwater's quote of Mao Zedong.

These two stories are all the buzz over the conservative blogosphere: Rush Limbaugh said, "The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons," (good), and Anita Dunn said, "The third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers, Mao Tse-Tung and Mother Teresa. ... You're going to make choices," (bad).

So here we are with conservatives defending Rush for comparing a mostly black league of athletes to a (mostly) black gang of criminal murderers because, well, he's just exercising his First Amendment rights, and the Left is trying to take him down with lies.

And then just a few days later, conservatives were attacking Dunn for quoting a communist murderer who also happened to be a very good political philosopher.

My thoughts are that both Dunn and Rush should go ahead and say whatever the hell they want, and we shouldn't care what they say, because maybe we should stop being so politically correct as a society?

Of course, the Right will never go along with that, despite the fact that Rush and Beck and everyone else consistently attack liberals for pushing politically correct fascism.

For activists, it's about tearing down their opponents however they can, not about standing for anything.

As Newt Gingrich said in 1995, "War is politics with blood; politics is war without blood."

(That's a Mao quote, by the way.)

Bill Dupray at True/Slant says it wasn't Dunn quoting Mao that is the problem, but that "explicitly say[ing] the person is one of your biggest influences."

But Bill Dupray lied there, just like CNN's Rick Sanchez lied about Rush saying slavery was good.

What Dunn actually said was that Mao was, "[one] of my favorite political philosophers."

And in fact, Mao was a great political philosopher.

The definition of philosophy, according to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language (Fourth Edition), is, "Investigation of the nature, causes, or principles of reality, knowledge, or values, based on logical reasoning rather than empirical methods."

Mao was so insightful when it came to investigating the nature of politics--i.e. how to gain and keep power--that he lead the communist takeover of China and became worshiped almost as much as our current president.

It was Mao's political philosophy that Gingrich quoted in 1995 to explain the nature of politics. There is nothing evil about thinking that Mao knows politics.

It's certainly true that Rush has been unfairly characterized, especially considering the fact that two of the quotes attributed to him last week were completely fake, but it's not like many conservative activists actually care that he was unfairly characterized. They only care that he's on their team.

If Glenn Beck cared about people being unfairly characterized then he'd stop calling Anita Dunn a Mao-ist commie, and he'd at least wait until she said something controversial before exposing his disregard for free speech and free thinking.

Then, I emailed him with my thoughts:
Mitchell Blatt,
I would say 95% of what was stated about Rush were false accusations, and 100% of what conservatives are stating about Anita Dunn is correct. Plus, theres proof, the video, in the case of Anita Dunn. Mao was a mass murderer, even worse than Hitler or Stalin. Anita Dunn said,"The third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers, Mao Tse-Tung and Mother Teresa. ... You're going to make choices," (bad). Did you notice that she said MY and not a great philosopher? Plus, here is Dunn referring to Mao, "the leader's philosophies were a guidepost for her own strategy on politics." Bill Dupray was in fact correct in his statement when he referred to Mao being one of Anita Dunn's biggest influences. The fact that Mao was a mass murderer is much more relevant than the fact he may have been a great political philosopher. Dunn was talking to students who are quite impressionable and seems to have been misleading them to believe that he was a great philosopher with no record of mass murder. She was distorting reality, which is what the left normally does. She has the right to express all of her free speech rights as she pleases, but so do conservative bloggers. Mao should not be praised at all, or put alongside Mother Teresa. That was absurd. Mother Teresa is in a class all her own. She performed many great works and is a fantastic role model for others to look up to. Prominent conservatives such as Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Steyn and conservative bloggers have a right to their free speech and express it toward the absurd- Anita Dunn and her comments.So, give prominent conservatives and conservative bloggers the same respect that you have given to Anita Dunn with regards to free speech rights, instead of demonizing us. Plus, I am not a fan of Newt either. He has a right to speak his mind as we do to, but for him to quote Mao is absurd, too. Please remember that we ALL have a right to free speech afforded to us in the Constitution. Both conservatives and liberals have a right to express their free speech rights'.
Teresa Rice

You can see Mitchell Blatt's new blog here.

I just now received this email from Mitchell Blatt: I received your email, and I don't agree that this is should be a big controversy, but that's fine, we can disagree.

Okay, his comment doesn't even make sense since he is the person making a big deal about conservatives expressing their free speech. This sparked a nerve in me, so I just had to stand up for all of our rights' to criticize others' by expressing my right to freedom of speech.

Here is Marc Steyn's latest article, that Mitchell Blatt was referring to:

A Tale of Two Soundbites
Which one sounds “divisive” to you?

Here is a tale of two soundbites.

First:“Slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”

Second:“The third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers, Mao Tse-Tung and Mother Teresa. Not often coupled with each other, but the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point, which is: You’re going to make choices. . . . But here’s the deal: These are your choices; they are no one else’s. In 1947, when Mao Tse-Tung was being challenged within his own party on his own plan to basically take China over, Chiang Kai-Shek and the nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army. . . . They had everything on their side. And people said ‘How can you win . . . ? How can you do this against all of the odds against you?’ And Mao Tse-Tung says, ‘You fight your war and I’ll fight mine . . . ’ You don’t have to accept the definition of how to do things. . . . You fight your war, you let them fight theirs. Everybody has their own path.”

The first quotation was attributed to Rush Limbaugh. He never said it. There is no tape of him saying it. There is no transcript of him saying it. After all, if he had done so at any point in the last 20 years, someone would surely have mentioned it at the time.

Yet CNN, MSNBC, ABC, other networks, and newspapers all around the country cheerfully repeated the pro-slavery quotation and attributed it, falsely, to Rush Limbaugh. And planting a flat-out lie in his mouth wound up getting Rush bounced from a consortium hoping to buy the St. Louis Rams. The NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, said the talkshow host was a “divisive” figure, and famously non-divisive figures like the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson expressed the hope that, with Mister Divisive out of the picture, the NFL could now “unify.”

The second quotation — hailing Mao — was uttered back in June to an audience of high-school students by Anita Dunn, the White House communications director. I know she uttered it because I watched the words issuing from her mouth on The Glenn Beck Show on Fox News. But don’t worry. Nobody else played it.
So if I understand correctly:
Rush Limbaugh is so “divisive” that to get him fired leftie agitators have to invent racist soundbites to put in his mouth.
But the White House communications director is so un-divisive that she can be invited along to recommend Chairman Mao as a role model for America’s young.

Lord Monckton Says: Stop Obama From Relinquishing U.S. Sovereignty in Copenhagen; A New World Order?

First, I would like to thank all my wonderful blogging friends who brought this to my attention.
I am inviting everyone to visit their excellent blogs.
H/T to Goomba's News Network
H/T to MAinfo
H/T to The Conservative Lady

The Minnesota Free Market Institute hosted an event at Bethel University in St. Paul on Wednesday evening. Keynote speaker Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing and lengthy presentation, complete with detailed charts, graphs, facts, and figures which culminated in the utter decimation of both the pop culture concept of global warming and the credible threat of any significant anthropomorphic climate change.
A detailed summary of Monckton’s presentation will be available here once compiled. However, a segment of his remarks justify immediate publication. If credible, the concern Monckton speaks to may well prove the single most important issue facing the American nation, bigger than health care, bigger than cap and trade, and worth every citizen’s focused attention.
Here were Monckton’s closing remarks, as dictated from my audio recording:

At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it.

I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfication of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.

How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement, who took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year, because [the communists] captured it – Now the apotheosis as at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign it. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course he’ll sign it.
And the trouble is this; if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties – And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it.

So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your humanity away forever. And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not.

But I think it is here, here in your great nation, which I so love and I so admire – it is here that perhaps, at this eleventh hour, at the fifty-ninth minute and fifty-ninth second, you will rise up and you will stop your president from signing that dreadful treaty, that purposeless treaty. For there is no problem with climate and, even if there were, an economic treaty does nothing to [help] it.
So I end by saying to you the words that Winston Churchill addressed to your president in the darkest hour before the dawn of freedom in the Second World War. He quoted from your great poet Longfellow:
Sail on, O Ship of State!Sail on, O Union, strong and great!Humanity with all its fears,With all the hopes of future years,Is hanging breathless on thy fate!

Lord Monckton received a standing ovation and took a series of questions from members of the audience. Among those questions were these relevent to the forthcoming Copenhagen treaty:

Question: The current administration and the Democratic majority in Congress has shown little regard for the will of the people. They’re trying to pass a serious government agenda, and serious taxation and burdens on future generations. And there seems to be little to stop them. How do you propose we stop Obama from doing this, because I see no way to stop him from signing anything in Copenhagen. I believe that’s his agenda and he'll do it .

I don’t minimize the difficulty. But on this subject – I don’t really do politics, because it’s not right. In the end, your politics is for you. The correct procedure is for you to get onto your representatives, both in the US Senate where the bill has yet to go through (you can try and stop that) and in [the House], and get them to demand their right of audience (which they all have) with the president and tell him about this treaty. There are many very powerful people in this room, wealthy people, influential people. Get onto the media, tell them about this treaty. If they go to, they will find (if they look carefully enough) a copy of that treaty, because I arranged for it to be posted there not so long ago. Let them read it, and let the press tell the people that their democracy is about to be taken away for no good purpose, at least [with] no scientific basis [in reference to climate change]. Tell the press to say this. Tell the press to say that, even if there is a problem [with climate change], you don’t want your democracy taken away. It really is as simple as that.

[Update: this section on a question from an attendee to the presentation has been removed from this WUWT article because even though Monckton clearly refuted it, it is turning into a debate over presidential eligibility that I don't want at WUWT. If you want to see it and discuss it. Do it at the original blog entry Fightin' Words - Anthony]

Regardless of whether global warming is taking place or caused to any degree by human activity, we do not want a global government empowered to tax Americans without elected representation or anything analogous to constitutional protections. The Founding Fathers would roll over in their graves if they knew their progeny allowed a foreign power such authority, effectively undoing their every effort in an act of Anti-American Revolution. If that is our imminent course, we need to put all else on hold and focus on stopping it. If American sovereignty is ceded, all other debate is irrelevant.

Edited to add @ 8:31 am:
Skimming through the treaty, I came across verification of Monckton’s assessment of the new entity’s purpose:

38. The scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention will be based on three basic pillars: government; facilitative mechanism; and financial mechanism, and the basic organization of which will include the following:

World Government (heading added)
a) The government will be ruled by the COP with the support of a new subsidiary body on adaptation, and of an Executive Board responsible for the management of the new funds and the related facilitative processes and bodies. The current Convention secretariat will operate as such, as appropriate.
To Redistribute Wealth (heading added)
b) The Convention’s financial mechanism will include a multilateral climate change fund including five windows: (a) an Adaptation window, (b) a Compensation window, to address loss and damage from climate change impacts [read: the "climate debt" Monckton refers to], including insurance, rehabilitation and compensatory components, © a Technology window; (d) a Mitigation window; and (e) a REDD window, to support a multi-phases process for positive forest incentives relating to REDD actions.
With Enforcement Authority (heading added)
c) The Convention’s facilitative mechanism will include: (a) work programmes for adaptation and mitigation; (b) a long-term REDD process; © a short-term technology action plan; (d) an expert group on adaptation established by the subsidiary body on adaptation, and expert groups on mitigation, technologies and on monitoring, reporting and verification; and (e) an international registry for the monitoring, reporting and verification of compliance of emission reduction commitments, and the transfer of technical and financial resources from developed countries to developing countries. The secretariat will provide technical and administrative support, including a new centre for information exchange [read; enforcement].

Fox News Gives Radical Marc Lamont - Hill the Axe

The Radical Marc Lamont - Hill

Marc Lamont - Hill has been fired from Fox News. He had been a contributor for Fox News, but due to his extremely questionable associations and some extremist type figures that he supports he has been canned from Fox News. He's too much of a far leftist who supports communism and black liberation theology, for Fox News to be able to keep him on staff. Marc Lamont- Hill openly supports Assata Shakaur, Abu-Jamal Mumia, Khalid Muhammed, and the "Poor Righteous Communist Party".

Marc Lamont-Hill supports Assata Shakur who is an African-American activist who was a leading figure in the Black Liberation Army. In 1973, Shakur was involved in a police shootout in which a New Jersey State Trooper named Werner Forester was killed. In 1977, Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder of the killing of the police officer, Werner Forester. In 1979, Shakur escaped from prison and has been living in Cuba under politcal asylum since 1984. Since 2005 the FBI has classified her as a "domestic terrorist."

Marc Lamont-Hill supports Mumia Abu - Jamal who is an African-American who killed a Philadelphia police officer named Daniel Faulkner. Before Mumia was arrested he was a member of the Black Panther Party. Mumia was convicted of the murder of the police officer, and sentenced to death. He is a controversial figure who is known as "perhaps the best known Death-Row prisoner in the world" and for that reason his case is pending on whether the death penalty is appropriate for him. The prosecutors are waiting for a separate appeal to be heard in order to reinstate the death penalty.

Marc Lamont- Hill supports the activism and message that Khalid Muhammed promoted during his life. Muhammed was a spokesman for the Nation of Islam(NOI) and would perform speeches at universities and colleges that spewed virulent ant-semistism and racism. He was an advisor of Louis Farakhan and became well acquanted with Muammar El-Khadafi and was so filled with hate and dedicated to Farakhan's message of racism that he became the national spokesman for NOI. "Muhammad first drew harsh criticism for a speech he gave at New Jersey's Kean College in November 1993. He referred to Jews as "bloodsuckers," called for the genocide of white people, and demeaned both Pope John Paul II and homosexuals." Then, at the end of the Million Youth March in NY, Muhammed incited riots and called for the crowd to beat the police with rails and to shoot them with their own guns in "self-defense."

According to Accuracy in Academia, "There is no confusion about Hill’s speaking engagement at Polymathematic University (PU). He is so proud of it that he includes the appearance on his publicly available 9-page Curriculum Vitae."
'But PU is not an ordinary "university." PU describes itself as "an institution built on the solid foundation of the revolutionary program of the Five Jewels and Restrictive Laws and the ideology of Polymathematics. In this day and time of intense class contradictions between the world’s working classes of color and the white U.S. empire and their lackeys, the necessity for a revolutionary institution that focuses on the education and training of revolutionaries is extremely important. PU is a direct alternative to the bourgeois universities of the old world of decadent Capitalism, guiding the poor ghetto children of color into the new world of Righteous Communism (Peace.)" '

Marc Lamont - Hill's radical views include:

  • He called the notorious anti-white, anti-Jewish Khallid Muhammad a "mentor, teacher, and revolutionary hero," and believes that the black racist died not from a brain aneurysm but was assassinated. Muhammad was so extreme that he was ousted from the Nation of Islam because of his hatred of Jews.

  • He gave a lecture on "The Importance of Ideological Training in the New Millenium (sic)" at the Polymathematic University’s "Political Education Program for the Poor Righteous Communist Party."

  • He declared on a "MySpace" page that the people he’d like to meet personally include Assata Shakur, Louis Farrakhan, Fidel Castro, and Mumia Abu Jamal, another convicted cop-killer.

  • He speaks on "The Importance of the Nation of Islam to Hip-Hop Culture" and says that he once belonged to something called the Ansaaru Allah Community, an Islamic sect with doctrines similar to the Nation of Islam that has been accused of being a religious cult.

  • Hill’s "MySpace" page features a slide show of such figures as Assata Shakur, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and Ella Baker, who just happens to be the namesake of the Ella Baker Center, founded by Van Jones.

  • The Marc Lamont Hill website includes a graphic and obscene "Sex With Timaree" segment that features advice from a "Sexpert" on how to enjoy the "Land o’ Anal" or anal sex.

Marc Lamont - Hill deserved to be fired from Fox News. He is a far leftist radical. He supports cop killers, people who promote violence, and people who spew hatred. So, can a person conclude that he would promote this philosophy of hate which he embraces? Fox News should have vetted him before hiring him. But, at least Rupert Murdoch corrected the situation now.

Lies, Earmarks, and Corruption in the Health Care Bills

Reps. Peter Hoekstra and John Shadegg point out very eloquently that if Max Baucus and other Democrats weren't politicians they'd all be in jail. These health care bills have nothing to do with health care at all, but is a huge power grab to control more of our lives, and take away more of our freedom. The Democrats scheme is downright criminal. Most of the damn Democrats are corrupt to the core. This is a power grab, and one of the biggest power grabs in history. This is a hatchet job being committed by Democrats upon the American people.
Here is the article called, Lies, Earmarks, and Corruption All In One Bill:

We are nominating Sen. Baucus' health care reform bill for the Pulitzer Prize — for fiction.

Like works of great fiction writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Conrad and F. Scott Fitzgerald, the story line of the Baucus bill is not what it seems and is in fact a clever subterfuge of what health care reform will mean for the American people.

Hiding behind this facade is another story about a massive power grab by the Washington political establishment.

The bill is loaded with fiction. To begin with, it purports to reduce the deficit. This is really an Enron-style scam with the bill's massive new taxes starting on day one and its dramatic new health care expenditures, which will far exceed the tax revenues, beginning in year four.
Hence its favorable score: 10 years of revenue, seven of expenditures. In the private sector, people go to jail for this type of accounting; in the U.S. Senate, they trumpet it as good news.

The Baucus bill claims to treat all Americans equitably, yet four states receive Medicaid exemptions — the federal government will pick up the state's share of Medicaid costs — for five years. That means taxpayers in 46 states will subsidize other states, including Nevada, so Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can bring home the bacon and get re-elected.

Sen. Chuck Schumer put in a little-noticed provision that exempts New Yorkers and taxpayers from some other states from the bill's tax on gold-plated insurance plans. The result: The rest of the nation will subsidize the health care of New Yorkers and a few others.

If you're lucky enough to live in one of the favored states, you win. If not, you lose. Guess how many of those states are blue and have Democratic senators up for re-election? Hardly seems fair, does it? Huge earmarks and health care favoritism for states served by powerful Washington elites.

There are other massive earmarks in this bill. Up to $10 billion will go to VEBA, such as the underfunded retirement health care package of United Auto Workers retirees. This may or may not be a good idea, but it clearly does not belong in this legislation.

The bill has huge, new mandated costs on the states for Medicaid, and there are many other costs omitted from the bill that will need to be paid for by taxpayers. The bill claims savings it says will be achieved by reducing reimbursement rates to doctors and hospitals. This has never happened in the past and won't now. It is pure fiction. CONTINUED

Chris Matthews Wishes Rush Limbaugh DEAD!

Chris Matthews the blood-sucking leech that he is wants Rush Limbaugh DEAD! He is a sycophant that has all sorts of thrills and chills running up his leg, just at the mere sight of our Dear Leader. I think Matthews may have experienced a we we moment from all the excitement. Has he been experiencing a certain kind of dampness? Matthews is a sick bastage. This is an extremely sick fantasy - wanting Rush Dead. Was that a death threat? Should the meniacal low-life bastage be fired from PSMNBC? I say YES. But, The far leftist network has utterly no legitimacy as news network anyways, so why start being one now? MSNBC has no integrity whatsoever, so it almost a certainty that this station will do absolutely nothing with regards to reprimanding Chris Matthews. MSNBC fills the airwaves with bunches of lies, distortions, and dastardly evil wishes on conservatives. Freedom of speech is one thing, but Chris Matthews crossed the line in a mega way with wishing Limbaugh DEAD. Wishing death upon a person is no laughing matter, and it must not be taken lightly. This damn freakin low-life sicko needs to be fired from MSNBC.


CHRIS MATTHEWS: You guys see Live and Let Die, the great Bond film with Yaphet Kotto as the bad guy, Mr. Big? In the end they jam a big CO2 pellet in his face and he blew up. I have to tell you, Rush Limbaugh is looking more and more like Mr. Big, and at some point somebody’s going to jam a CO2 pellet into his head and he’s going to explode like a giant blimp. That day may come. Not yet. But we’ll be there to watch. I think he’s Mr. Big, I think Yaphet Kotto. Are you watching, Rush?

Live and Let Die? Matthews is into the Roger Moore Bond films? That explains a lot, actually.

Note too, that Matthews isn’t using the dishonest “some people are saying” dodge here, either. He’s openly wistful for the day it happens, telling Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Washington Post reporter Anne Kornblut that “we’ll be there to watch” when someone offs Rush.

Classy. Really, really classy. Does NBC want to stand behind this standard for its broadcasts?

In Defense of Fox News & MSM's Love Affair With Obama

The Naked Ontolologist gets a H/T for his wonderful help with the Picture.

I am so sick of this White House and this administration being the most childish set of whiners in history. Anita Dunn, the Communications Director at the White House, thinks that Fox News is an arm for the Republican Party. Well, that couldn't be further from the truth. Yes, Fox News is conservative leaning, but by no means an arm for the GOP. Even Glenn Beck a hard hitting personality that is highly critical of Obama and his administration goes after the GOP and its RINOS. Anita Dunn needs to get her facts correct by the way. News Flash- Fox News covered the Ensign story 11 times in 20 days. That makes it pretty obvious that she NEVER watches Fox News for herself, but yet relies on the distortions of left commentators like Kieth Olbermann, and Maddow. Both the White House and The Democratic Party has far reaching arms in the MSM. Well lets see.... There's ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and all of these so-called news networks have far-reaching tentacles for the Democratic Party. During the election they committed the biggest fraud in America's history. They defrauded the American people from knowing the truth about Barack Obama. They covered up his past and ignored the controversial issues related to Obama until the stories came to the forefront and they absolutely had to report on the stories. Then, the MSM looked so stupid and like a bunch of libtards for covering the news stories so late in the game. But, they did that on purpose to cover up the TRUTH from the American people. All of these so-called news agencies need grow the heck up, go back to journalism school, learn about journalistic integrity, which the MSM has none of, and then come back to the news industry.

Fox News has proven to be a news agency that both understands the concepts and exhibits practices that represent journalistic integrity, unlike the MSM. Fox News consisitently displays journalistic ethics and integrity by asking the hard-hitting questions when interviewing all politicians, CEO's, and of any person where those hard-hitting techniques apply. Fox News journalists and even opinion commentators are willing to get at the TRUTH, and get at the core of the hard pressing issue at hand.

The putrid stench in the air of the MSM's lack of journalistic integrity and refusal to ask the hard-hitting questions to all politicians and groups, including Democrats and liberals as much as conservatives and Republicans, just makes me want to gag. All of these MSM hardly ever criticizes or asks hard-hitting questions of any Democrats, including the President.

The President and his administration avoids criticism and its opposition like the plague. They have even tried to distort the truth and quash anyones opposing points of view by asking for "fishy" information at, having no alternatives to the President's ABC health care forum, to not appearing on Fox News Sunday and only being willing to preach to the choir on all the MSM's news channels. The Obama administration has proven that it can't handle criticisms or challenging questions from even the most respected and watched news agency, Fox News. In fact, this administration thinks of Fox News as more of a nemesis than thuglike dicatsors such as: Ahmandinjaed, Castro, Zelaya, Chavez and Kim Jong Il. The President likes to have his A$$ kissed by the MSM. What can I say, our President's a complete moron who shows a hate for America, hate for capitalism, and obviously can't recognize a great news agency that goes after the TRUTH, and has journalistic integrity. It's an extremely sad day for America when our President shows he has the thinnest skin on the planet and can't take one iota of criticism from the opposition.

Waaaa, Waaa, Waaa, What a bunch of crybabies!

An Amazingly Respectful & Compelling Pro-Life New York Times Article

Its AMAZING!! An honest article on the pro-life movement, on the front page of the New York Times!!!!!! The New York Times has actually written a fair characterization of pro-life activists and activism. And pleasantly surprised, pro-lifers are portrayed as smart, convicted, and compelling. This a very respectful story of pro-lifers and the pro-life movement.

Abortion Foes Tell of Their Journey to the Streets:

Action means many things to abortion opponents. Lobbyists and fund-raisers fight for the cause in marble hallways; volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers try to dissuade the pregnant on cozy sofas. Then there are the protesters like James Pouillon, who was shot dead here last month while holding an anti-abortion sign outside a high school. A martyr to some, an irritant to others, Mr. Pouillon in death has become a blessing of sorts for the loosely acquainted activists who knew him as a friend: proof that abortion doctors are not the only ones under duress, proof that protests matter, and a spark for more action.

“Jim suffered the persecution for us,” said Dan Brewer, who recalls swearing at Mr. Pouillon during one of his one-man protests in the ’90s, only to join him later after becoming a born-again Christian. “Now we just have to go out and do it.” A national tribute is already planned. Anti-abortion groups are calling on protesters to stand outside schools with signs that depict abortion on Nov. 24 in 40 to 50 cities nationwide.

Some who plan to take part, like Chet Gallagher, a former Las Vegas police officer, have been answering such calls for decades; he first got involved in the ’80s, when every month seemed to bring a new “rescue,” another chance to lock arms with fellow Christians and block access to an abortion clinic.
Others have arrived at the cause after experiencing personal traumas — in the case of Deborah Anderson, an abusive childhood and then an unwanted pregnancy — while still more fell into it through personal connections.

Together, these street activists make up an assertive minority of a few thousand people within the larger anti-abortion movement. Neither the best financed nor largest element in the mix, they are nonetheless the only face of anti-abortion that many Americans see. Indeed, persistent provocation is their defining attribute: day after day on street corners from California to Massachusetts, they stand like town criers, calling to women walking into abortion clinics, or waving graphic signs as disturbing as they are impossible to ignore.
Their ranks are more infused with emotion — they would say commitment — than top-down discipline.

Ziad Munson, a sociologist at Lehigh University who has interviewed hundreds of abortion opponents, said street protesters rarely moved into other areas of the movement and tended to work alone or in smaller groups. Even in cases when they form large and influential organizations, it is sometimes difficult to get beyond the culture of passionate dispute.
To critics, like Nancy Keenan, president of Naral Pro-Choice America, these protesters look like bullies bent on harassment. Among those who share their views but not their tactics, street activists have been marginalized as attention hogs who prefer to attract outrage rather than inspiring compassion.

In the case of Mr. Pouillon, that outrage may have led to death. The police said the man charged in the killing, Harlan J. Drake, a local truck driver, was bothered by the signs Mr. Pouillon showed children as they came to school. The day he was shot, Mr. Pouillon was showing a mangled fetus, part of an almost daily effort to put abortion into the minds of his neighbors. “It’s all about the eyes,” he used to say to fellow demonstrators. “It’s all about the eyes.”
But as the personal stories of Mr. Gallagher, Mr. Brewer and Ms. Anderson suggest, the motivations of many protesters are more complicated. They see themselves as righteous curbside critics, prophets warning the world with what they describe as the horrific truth no one wants to see. They have endured insults, threats and even estrangement from their families because they have found what nearly every activist craves: conviction, camaraderie and conflict.

The Police Officer: From Civil Law to Biblical
Chet Gallagher did not plan to join the blockade at the abortion clinic in Atlanta when he traveled there 21 years ago. But when he saw the passion of so many Christians outside the clinic, he said, he could not resist: he ended up in jail for 11 days, with James Pouillon and 700 others.


The NYT has actually printed pictures of abortion victims. Here are the pictures below. Forewarning: They are graphic.

A Politician Who Has Got a Clue (Video)

A H/T for this excellent video goes out to No Subject . Please go and check out his blog. Here is a politician who has got a clue. Representative Ted Poe of Texas understands what the American people need and want from their elected officials in congress. I just wish Obama, his comrades, and, the RHINOS would get a clue. Rep. Poe has common sense, which our politicians seem to be lacking nowadays. He understands that he is working for the people, and not vice versa. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Fox News!


In an article by Bill O'Reilly, he wrote:

Big birthday this week: Fox News Channel is 13 years old. I was there on Oct. 7, 1996, when the channel was launched with about 15 million subscribers. Now we have about 90 million. Back then, if "The Factor" received 50 e-mails a day we were happy. Now, we average about 2,000 electronic letters daily.

FNC is perhaps the biggest media success since the networks were formed in the 1940s. Fox News is a billion-dollar enterprise that dominates cable news ratings and is consistently in the top five of all cable programs. Simply put, FNC is on fire even after all these years.
There are two compelling questions on our birthday. First, why the big success? Second, why do many media people despise us?

The success part is two-fold. There is no question that FNC leans to the right, because it gives conservative voices a prominent place on the air. No other TV news operation does this. So, logically, conservative Americans tune in for long periods of time.

Also, Fox News is not boring! This, I believe, is the biggest reason for our success. Like us or not, we move things along. We have lively people on the air. We take chances and do things differently. In primetime especially, Americans do not want dull programming. Many news programs simply recite the day's events. That will not cut it anymore. You have to give viewers something unique and entertaining. FNC does. Continued...

Congratulations to Fox News!! They are the only fair & balanced news channel today. They are doing absolutely awesome!!! Fox News tells the TRUTH. Fox News doesn't cover up the truth all in the name of Dear Leader. I am so happy that Fox News is doing extremely well on cable T.V. today, after first airing 13 years ago. Fox News, Keep on rocking in the ratings! They leave their competitors in the dust. Fox News, good luck with all your future endeavors!

Democrats Master Plan for Health Care: Tax the Sick & Cut Medicare

What a magnificent idea!! Why not tax the sick? In Dick Morris's and Eileen McGann's latest article, they note that President Obama and Max Baucus have come up with a way to fund health care, Tax the sick. How ludicrous. They want to penalize the sick for being ill. What the hell! I thought that these were supposed to be the ever-caring liberals who wanted to help the sick? How is taxing the very people you supposedly want to help, going to help them out? Its not. This is going to put the sick, and most vulnerable in a bind financially. Is this Obama, Baucus, and the Democrats motive? To make the sick and/or elderly turn to the government for their end of life counseling? To save revenues? This is NOT going to help the sick! This is going to hurt the sick! But, Maybe this is all a part of their master plan?

In a new amendment to the health care bill, they propose to limit the deductibility of medical expenses on income taxes.
Now, taxpayers may deduct any medical expenses that exceed 7.5% of their Adjusted Gross Income. Obama and Baucus want to raise that threshold to 10% as long as the taxpayer is under 65.
Eight million Americans are sick enough and poor enough that they have to pay more than 7.5% of their income in medical expenses. And it is these folks that the liberals Obama and Baucus plan to tax! Six million of them earn less than $75,000 a year!
For a family earning $75,000 a year and facing out-of-pocket medical bills of $7, 500, this proposal would cost them about $600 a year in extra taxes.

And let’s remember who it is that they are taxing. This proposal affects people whose incomes are so limited and whose medical costs are so high that they exceed 7.5% of their pre-tax income. More

In a CNS News article, Pelosi says that she will squeeze Medicare to Pay for Health Care Bill.

On Sept. 10, 2009, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Congress will pay for half of the $1 trillion health care reform bill that President Obama wants enacted by “squeezing” Medicare and Medicaid to wring out what she called “waste, fraud, abuse, redundancy, obsolescence and whatever it is.” Pelosi was asked at her weekly press briefing if she agreed with President Obama that much of the health care reform plan can be paid for by cutting Medicare and Medicaid.

“Half the bill will be paid for by squeezing excesses out of the [Medicare and Medicaid] system, and there is $500 billion dollars to do that and we’re looking for more,” Pelosi said. “That can be achieved--waste, fraud, abuse, redundancy, obsolescence, whatever it is. Squeeze it out of the system; and that means out of the providers and the rest as well.”

On John Boehner's Blog, The GOP Leader, Kevin Boland posted:

The Democrats’ $1.6 trillion government takeover of health care relies on two funding schemes that will hurt millions of Americans - tax hikes and spending cuts.
The Democrats’ inclination to raise taxes on middle class families and small businesses has been well documented - and House Democrats are gunning to pass a health care bill with $800 billion in new taxes. But one element that is often overlooked in the health care debate is the drastic cuts Democrats are envisioning for Medicare - amounting to $500 billion over 10 years, largely taken out of Medicare Advantage, a program millions of American seniors depend on and value for their health care.

The Washington Post stated:

A bill being prepared by the Senate Finance Committee would trim more than $400 billion over the next decade from Medicare and Medicaid. Here's how the Medicare cuts, worth more than $300 billion, break down:

$182 billion in reduced payment rates for providers such as hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and hospices.
$113 billion from Medicare Advantage.
$23 billion in lower payments to hospitals for uncompensated care.
Other savings:
$10.7 billion in higher drug-coverage premiums for high-income seniors.
$10.1 billion from programs that encourage innovation.

$22.6 billion from a new Medicare commission empowered to restrain future spending growth.
SOURCE: Congressional Budget Office

Yes, Indeed Obama, Baucus, Pelosi and all the rest of the Democrats want to and WILL CUT MEDICARE for the SICK and ELDERLY in their health care bill.

So, beware folks, don't this atrocity of a bill pass!!!

Left Coast Rebel was right!! His article is accurate.
Pelosi did say she agrees with and is for cuts to medicare.

Now is the Time: Drill, Baby, Drill

Here is an article written by Sarah Palin on energy independence at Poltical Integrity. com:

Posted on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

The British newspaper The Independent reported today that Gulf oil producers were negotiating with Russia, China, Japan and France to replace the dollar in pricing oil with a basket of currencies.[1] According to the Wall Street Journal, Arab oil officials have denied the story, but even the possibility of such a talk weakens the dollar and renews fears about its continued viability as an international reserve currency.[2] In fact, today a United Nations official called for a new global reserve currency to replace the dollar and end our “privilege” to run up huge deficits.[3] We can see the effect of this in the price of gold, which hit a record high today in response to fears about the weakened dollar.[4]

All of this is a result of our out-of-control debt. This is why we need to rein in spending, and this is also why we need energy independence. A weakened dollar means higher commodity prices. This will make it more difficult to pay our bills – including the bill to import oil.

In his book Architects of Ruin, Peter Schweizer points out that the Obama administration is focusing primarily on “green energy,” while ignoring our need to develop our domestic conventional energy resources.[5] We’re ignoring the looming crisis caused by our dependence on foreign oil. Because we’re dependent on foreign nations for our oil, we’re also at their mercy if they decide to dump the dollar as their trade currency. We can’t allow ourselves to be so vulnerable to the whims of foreign nations. That’s why we must develop our own domestic supplies of oil and gas.

Though the chant of “Drill, baby, drill” was much derided, it expressed the need to confront this issue head-on before it reaches a crisis point.

Bottom line: let’s stop digging ourselves into debt and start drilling for energy independence.
- Sarah Palin

We need to stop being dependent for oil from countries in the Middle East that hate us, and want to destroy us. There are many places today within the U.S. that we could start the process of drilling for oil today. One place in the U.S. that we could start the process of drilling, and its been ready for years, is ANWR in Alaska. ANWR consists of an area comprising 19 million, 600 thousand (19,600,000) acres. The area within ANWR needed for oil production is a miniscule, 2000 acres! According to The Progressive Conservative USA,"The area in which we would be drilling is a land where nothing can live. Not even the caribou go there if they can avoid it. It is barren and there's nothing there but frozen mud and rocks. It's like a cold desert. Nobody lives there because nobody in his right mind would want to live there."

So, why the heck are we not drilling for oil right here in the U.S.? All those damn environmental Whacko nutjobs have infiltrated the U.S. with their warped sense of reality. And, they have influenced the politicians in Washington to abandon common sense and lose their minds, instead of the politicians actually doing what is right for America.

I agree with Sarah Palin, let's "Drill, baby, Drill" and now.

The Axis of Idiots

"The Axis of Idiots"From the Podium:J. D. Pendry, Retired Sergeant Major, USMC
Jimmy Carter, you are the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home, and then lacked the spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people hostage. You're the "runner-in-chief."

Bill Clinton, you played ring around the Lewinsky while the terrorists were at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia and then you ran from it. Your weak-willed responses to the USS Cole and the First Trade Center Bombing and Our Embassy Bombings emboldened the killers. Each time you failed to respond adequately, they grew bolder, until 9/11/2001.

John Kerry, dishonesty is your most prominent attribute. You lied about American Soldiers in Vietnam . Your military service, like your life, is morefiction than fact. You've accused our military of terrorizing women and children in Iraq . You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time, and the same words you used to describe Vietnam . You're a fake! You want to run from Iraq and abandon the Iraqis to murderers just as you did to the Vietnamese. Iraq , like Vietnam , is another war that you were for, before you were against it.

John Murtha, you said our military was broken. You said we can't win militarily in Iraq . You accused United States Marines of cold-blooded murder without proof and said we should redeploy to Okinawa . Okinawa, John? And the Democrats call you their military expert! Are you sure you didn't suffer a traumatic brain injury while you were off building your war hero resume? You're a sad, pitiable, corrupt, and washed up old fool. You're not a Marine, sir. You wouldn't amount to a good pimple on a real Marine's ass. You're a phony and a disgrace. Run away, John.

Dick Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanamo of being Nazis, tenders of Soviet style gulags and as bad as the regime of Pol Pot, who murdered two million of his own people after your party abandoned Southeast Asia to the Communists. Now you want to abandon the Iraqis to the same fate. History was not a good teacher for you, was it? Lord help us! See Dick run.

Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ Feingold, Pat Leahy, Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, the Hollywood Leftist morons, et al, ad nauseam: Every time you stand in front of television cameras and broadcast to the Islamic Nazis that we went to war because our President lied, that the war is wrong and our Soldiers are torturers, that we should leave Iraq, you give the Islamic butchers - the same ones that tortured and mutilated American Soldiers - cause to think that we'll run away again, and all they have to do is hang on a little longer. It is inevitable that we, the infidels, will have to defeat the Islamic jihadists. Better to do it now on their turf, than later on ours after they have gained both strength and momentum.

American news media, the New York Times particularly: Each time you publish stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence gathering methods, you become one united with the sub-human pieces of camel dung that torture and mutilate the bodies of American Soldiers. You can't strike up the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy my country. Actually, you are more dangerous to us than Al Qaeda is. Think about that each time you face Mecca to admire your Pulitzer.

You are America 's 'AXIS OF IDIOTS.' Your Collective Stupidity will destroy us. Self-serving politics and terrorist-abetting news scoops are more important to you than our national security or the lives of innocent civilians and Soldiers It bothers you that defending ourselves gets in the way of your elitist sport of politics and your ignorant editorializing. There is as much blood on your hands as is on the hands of murdering terrorists. Don't ever doubt that. Your frolics will only serve to extend this war as they extended Vietnam . If you want our Soldiers home as you claim, knock off the crap and try supporting your country ahead of supporting your silly political aims and aiding our enemies.
Yes, I'm questioning your patriotism. Your loyalty ends with self. I'm also questioning why you're stealing air that decent Americans could be breathing. You don't deserve the protection of our men and women in uniform. You need to run away from this war, this country. Leave the war to the people who have the will to see it through and the country to people who are willing to defend it.Our country has two enemies: Those who want to destroy us from the outside and those who attempt it from within.

Key Rwandan genocide suspect arrested in Uganda

Here is an AP Report by GODFREY OLUKYA, of a Key Rwandan genocide suspect arrested in Uganda:

KAMPALA, Uganda – Interpol agents have arrested one of the most wanted suspects in Rwanda's 1994 genocide, a former top intelligence official accused of sending soldiers to execute the Rwandan queen, officials said Tuesday.

Officers of the Lyon, France-based global police agency arrested former Rwandan deputy intelligence chief, Idelphonse Nizeyimana, on Monday in Kampala, said Uganda's government spokesman Fred Opolot.

Ugandan police spokeswoman Judith Nabakooba said Nizeyimana is believed to have entered Uganda through neighboring Congo using fake travel documents.
Nizeyimana will be flown to Arusha, Tanzania, where the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda sits.

More than half a million members of the Tutsi ethnic minority and moderates from the Hutu majority were slaughtered during the 100-day Rwandan genocide in 1994.
Rwanda's genocide began hours after a plane carrying President Juvenal Habyarimana was shot down.

The former captain in Rwanda's army is wanted on charges of genocide by the tribunal. Under the U.S. State Department's Rewards for Justice program, there is a reward of up to $5 million on Nizeyimana's head for any information leading to his capture.

According to a 2000 indictment prepared by the tribunal, Nizeyimana is alleged to have formed secret units of soldiers that carried out the execution of the then Queen of Rwanda, Rosalie Gicanda, a symbolic figure for all Tutsis, among other prominent Tutsis.

Nizeyimana is the second high-profile arrest of a key Rwanda genocide suspect in two months.
A former mayor, Gregoire Ndahimana, appeared before the tribunal last week after being captured in Congo in August. Ndahimana had been on the run for 15 years and had a similar bounty on his head, but no one claimed it when he was arrested.

With Nizeyimana's arrest, 11 top suspects remain with similar bounties on their heads for their alleged roles in the 1994 genocide.

This is great!! One of the top evil bastages that committed the horrendous genocide in Rwanda has been captured. They need to hang his butt from the flag pole, or better yet drop his body tied up in the streets and let all the people who survived that horrible tragedy and lost families, have at him. I believe that this genocidal maniac is due his just desserts.
