The Heritage Foundation's Ernest Istook Schools Ed Schultz on How Obamacare Hurts Poor & Kills Jobs

Here is an interesting transcript of an interview between Ernest Istook and Ed Schultz in which Istook schools Schultz on what is exactly in Obamacare. Of course, Schultz just believes the Democrats misinformation. And, he falsely calls the truth, or what is actually in Obamacare, misinformation. That is all these damn Democratic commentators do - is spread lies and deception to citizens that the Obama administration and Democrats relay to them regarding Obamacare.

This article is from The Heritage Foundation's The Foundry

Ed Schultz is a leftist radio personality who recently graduated to MSNBCs barely watched opinion line up. Schultz still hosts his daily radio show and recently had Heritage Foundation fellow Ernest Istook on to discuss Obamacare. The following exchange (audio here) transpired:

SCHULTZ: OK, give us your new information from the Heritage Foundation on health care. Tell us how screwed up the Democrats are on that.

ISTOOK: Well, you know, I think this may be in the category of unintended consequences, although frankly it may be part of the cost control. As we’ve been going through this 2,000 pages that have been brought up for debate in the US Senate, evidently the penalties that they put upon employers if their, the people who work for them go into this public plan, this so-called insurance exchange …

SCHULTZ: Don’t tell me they’re going to jail! Please …

ISTOOK: No, this is not about that.


ISTOOK: This is, the penalty if you are an employer and you hire someone who then receives the federal subsidy because of their family income, you as the employer, the penalty can be $3,000 for each worker that you hire. Here’s the difficulty, Ed. It makes it more costly for a company to hire somebody such as a single mother with small children who may need the job the most of all. It makes it more expensive for a company to hire them than it does to hire someone, for example, who is married and has multiple sources of income for their household because the subsidies are based upon household income. The unintended consequence of this could be that the people who most need work will have the biggest difficulty in finding it.

SCHULTZ: I tell you what, you guys have really, uh, dug something up over at the Heritage Foundation on that one.

ISTOOK: No, we didn’t write the bill.

SCHULTZ: There is, congressman, if people break the law there’s going to be a fine, that’s basically what you’re saying.

ISTOOK: Well, I’m not talking about that aspect …

SCHULTZ: …. That’s if the mandate, that’s if the mandate is accepted in conference committee. I mean, we’re still, I mean, there is, there’s no guarantee that there’s going to be any fines anywhere.

ISTOOK: Well, again, this, are you telling me that there’s no guarantee that the main parts of the bill will go through? This is what they call the provision to stop what they call free riders, people that receive their health care through this government system that would be set up there and they’re saying if you as an employer have people who work for you who receive their health care in this fashion, you as the employer are going to have to pay extra into this system to the tune of approximately $3,000 per worker per year.

SCHULTZ: No! Ernie, that’s not true!

ISTOOK: Well, all you have to do is read the bill.

SCHULTZ: This is going, this is going to reduce the cost to small businesses across America.
ISTOOK: Surprise! The small businesses don’t believe you, Ed.
ISTOOK: Again, I mean …
SCHULTZ: I can’t take all this misinformation! I can’t take all this misinformation, I can’t! I don’t know what you guys do over there at the Heritage Foundation. Go to lunch! This is, this is going to relieve small business. This is one of the attacks that the Democrats have got to come up with on the Senate floor, is that the Republicans, you’re not for small business. If someone’s under $90,000 a year and works for a company of less than 50 employees, and that’s the majority, that’s over 95 percent of employees in this country are in that category, this is going to help, you know, Ralph’s Radiator Garage. There’s no …

ISTOOK: Ed, rather than read Democratic talking points I suggest you read the bill.

SCHULTZ: That’s a fact! That’s a fact! That’s an absolute fact! This is going to help small businesses! For you folks over at the Heritage Foundation to come out and say, well, you’re gonna get fined! For what?!
ISTOOK: Ed, the fines and the penalties are in the legislation. And …
SCHULTZ: You send me the page. It is not there!
Well, Ed, on page 350 of the Senate’s version of Obamacare it reads:



(A) an applicable large employer offers to its full-time employees (and their dependents) the opportunity to enroll in minimum essential coverage under an eligible employer-sponsored plan (as defined in section 5000A(f)(2)) for any month, and

(B) 1 or more full-time employees of the applicable large employer has been certified to the employer under section 1411 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as having enrolled for such month in a qualified health plan with respect to which an applicable premium tax credit or cost-sharing reduction is allowed or paid with respect to the employee, then there is hereby imposed on the employer an assessable payment equal to the product of the number of full-time employees of the applicable large employer described in subparagraph (B) for such month and 400 percent of the applicable payment amount.

Later on page 352 we learn:

(1) APPLICABLE PAYMENT AMOUNT.—The term ‘applicable payment amount’ means, with respect to any month, 1?12 of $750.

Some quick math reveals: 12 * $750 = $750 a year, and 400% of $750 is $3,000. Or as Heritage scholar Robert Book explained:

Then there is the “employer responsibility” provision (Section 1511-1513, pages 346-357). Companies with more than 50 employees are required to offer qualified health plans – with a benefit package to be defined later by bureaucrats – to their full-time employees or pay a tax of $750 per full-time employee. That’s a lot cheaper than providing health insurance, and the $750 is just a tax – it doesn’t count towards the employee’s premium.

However, an employer who does offer qualifying insurance isn’t entirely off the hook. Suppose an employer offers insurance, but has an employee from a low-income family who qualifies for a premium subsidy in the “health insurance exchange” and decides to accept it. In that case, the employer is stuck with a tax penalty of $3,000 for that employee, and every other employee who qualifies and makes that same choice – unless it’s more than a quarter of the employees, in which case the tax is capped at $750 times the total number of full-time employees. (Workers will be permitted to opt out of their employer’s plan only if they qualify for a subsidy, have insurance through another family member, or if the employer covers less than 60 percent of their premium.)

Hurting the Poor. In other words, if a company has a lot of low-income workers, they can save money by dropping their health plan and just paying the $750 per-employee tax. (And they can make as many employees as possible part-time.) However, if they have mostly middle-income workers, they face a heavy penalty — $3,000 – every time they hire a worker from a low-income family. This goes by the employee’s family income, not the income the employee is paid by any particular company. So a company could save $3,000 by hiring, say, someone with a working spouse or a teenager with working parents, rather than a single mother with three children.

Even worse, if at least a quarter of the employees qualify for a premium subsidy based on their income and family size, the company is going to end up paying the same $750 per-employee tax – whether they offer insurance or not! So companies with a lot of low-income employees will essentially be encouraged to drop their health plans entire, dumping the remaining higher-income employees into the federal exchange at their own expense.

Seriously Bad Policy. In other words, employers will have a strong tax incentive to lay off the workers who need the jobs most – people without other sources of income.

How will employers know who those workers are? The federal officials will tell them when they send the tax bill (Section 1412).

Employer will be required (Section 1513) to inform the IRS of precisely who their employees are and during which months they carried insurance, to make sure the IRS knows who has to pay the “individual responsibility” penalty.

Dubai Crisis??? Explanation of Financial Crisis & Why It is Not Former President George W. Bush's Fault

It seems as though appearances can be deceiving. In recent years, Dubai has been thought to be one of the few cities in the world that has had a thriving economy amidst the economic global crisis. But, I guess Dubai's supposedly booming economy bubble is about to burst. If Dubai defaults on its debt than it could become an International nightmare that would escalate troubles within our present economic crisis. It is more probable than not that Obama will play the blame Bush game if Dubai's financial troubles causes havoc across the globe. BO seems to be unable to take responsibility for anything. This financial crisis is not former Pres. George W. Bush's fault. The Democrats blocked his every attempt to avert the crisis before the financial meltdown occurred. The Democrats were getting kickbacks for supporting Fannie and Freddie. The Democrats did not want to accept the reality that Fannie and Freddie would hurt the economy if nothing was done because they didn't want to give up all their lucrative side deals that they had with Fannie and Freddie employees. Bush tried to stop the crisis and is now being unjustly blamed for something that in reality, wasn't and still is not his fault. And, that irks me to no end. The Democrats due to their ineptitude and being morally bankrupt are the people who need to be blamed for this financial crisis. But, then again, I don't think that Democrats are capable of accepting responsibility for their actions, or inaction.

Here is the article on the debt crisis in Dubai, and three videos explaining exactly how the financial meltdown occurred, and how the Bush administration tried to stop this financial crisis from happening, but Democrats blockaded all of his administration's attempts to stop the housing crisis at every turn.

Nov. 27 (Bloomberg) — Dubai’s debt woes may worsen to become a “major sovereign default” that roils developing nations and cuts off capital flows to emerging markets, Bank of America Corp. said.

“One cannot rule out — as a tail risk — a case where this would escalate into a major sovereign default problem, which would then resonate across global emerging markets in the same way that Argentina did in the early 2000s or Russia in the late 1990s,” Bank of America strategists Benoit Anne and Daniel Tenengauzer wrote in a report.

A default would lead to a “sudden stop of capital flows into emerging markets” and be a “major step back” in the recovery from the global financial crisis, they wrote.

Emerging-market stocks around the world have slumped for two days on concern a debt restructuring by Dubai World, with $59 billion of liabilities, will add to the $1.72 trillion of losses and writedowns from the global credit freeze. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index fell 1.9 percent to 940.30 as of 1:55 p.m. in New York, extending this week’s decline to 2.6 percent.

Dubai, which borrowed $80 billion in a four-year construction boom to transform its economy into a tourism and financial hub, suffered the world’s steepest property slump in the recession. Home prices fell 50 percent from their 2008 peak, according to Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank AG.
‘Best-Case Scenario’

“In a best-case scenario, this will remain limited to a Dubai corporate sector problem, with either some bailout from UAE authorities or a market-friendly debt restructuring,” they wrote.

Bank of America estimates that Dubai’s debt totals $88 billion, and that its external debt equals 103 percent of gross domestic product, according to a separate report. CONTINUED

Obama's 10 Commandments

This is a brilliant post by Professor of Life that I am passing along. I hope that everyone  enjoys reading this.
H/T goes to Professor of Life. Please go check out his wonderful blog.

I. Thou shalt have no God in America, except for me. For we are no longer a Christian nation and, after all, I am the chosen One. (And like God, I do not have a birth certificate.)

II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, unless it is my face carved on Mt. Rushmore.

III. Thou shalt not utter my middle name in vain (or in public). Only I can say Barack Hussein Obama.

IV. Remember tax day, April 15th, to keep it holy.

V. Honor thy father and thy mother until they are too old and sick to care for. They will cost our public-funded health-care system too much money.

VI. Thou shalt not kill, unless you have an unwanted, unborn baby. For it would be an abomination to punish your daughter with a baby.

VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery if you are conservative or a Republican. Liberals and Democrats are hereby forgiven for all of their infidelity and immorality, but the careers of conservatives will be forever destroyed.

VIII. Thou shalt not steal, until you've been elected to public office. Only then is it acceptable to take money from hard-working, successful citizens and give it to those who do not work, illegal immigrants, or those who do not have the motivation to better their own lives.

IX. Thou shalt not discriminate against thy neighbor unless they are conservative, Caucasian, or Christian.
X. Thou shalt not covet because it is simply unnecessary. I will place such a heavy tax burden on those that have achieved the American Dream that, by the end of my term as President, nobody will have any wealth or material goods left for you to covet.

These can be sourced. Ask The awesome professor if you need to see it.

Russian News Video: Reporting on the Hoax of Climate Change

As the left continues to lie to American citizens about climate change and rip citizens money off all for a hoax, we conservatives will continue to spread the truth about climate change.

Two Different Interviews With Bishop Tobin

Here are two interviews with Bishop Tobin.  Please take notice how one is disrespectful and the other is respectful.  Here is a Catholic Bishop willing to stand up for his faith.  If you don't stand up for the principles of your faith and follow those principles than I don't see any point in being a part of the community of that faith.  And, it is especially scandalous for the Catholic Church to allow a public politician like Rep. Kennedy to promote abortion when it goes against the moral teachings of the Church.

Obamacare is Unconstitutional and Immoral

In David Rifkin, Jr. and Lee A. Casey's article, they explain exactly how Obamacare is unconstitutional. The "individual mandate" makes Obamcare unconstitutional since Congress does not have the authority to require every American to buy health insurance. "The Constitution assigns only limited, enumerated powers to Congress and none, including the power to regulate interstate commerce or to impose taxes, would support a federal mandate requiring anyone who is otherwise without health insurance to buy it."

"The otherwise uninsured would be required to buy coverage, not because they were even tangentially engaged in the "production, distribution or consumption of commodities," but for no other reason than that people without health insurance exist. The federal government does not have the power to regulate Americans simply because they are there. Significantly, in two key cases, United States v. Lopez (1995) and United States v. Morrison (2000), the Supreme Court specifically rejected the proposition that the commerce clause allowed Congress to regulate noneconomic activities merely because, through a chain of causal effects, they might have an economic impact. These decisions reflect judicial recognition that the commerce clause is not infinitely elastic and that, by enumerating its powers, the framers denied Congress the type of general police power that is freely exercised by the states."

 Ed Morrissey states in his article that an individual mandate would be unprecedented. He states, "A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health insurance would be an unprecedented form of federal action. The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States."

Ed Morrissey quoted both Thomas Jefferson and James Madison in explaining the "general welfare" clause and its close connection to enumerated powers and their limitations:

Money cannot be applied to the General Welfare, otherwise than by an application of it to some particular measure conducive to the General Welfare. Whenever, therefore, money has been raised by the General Authority, and is to be applied to a particular measure, a question arises whether the particular measure be within the enumerated authorities vested in Congress. If it be, the money requisite for it may be applied to it; if it be not, no such application can be made. (James Madison, via Quoty)

[O]ur tenet ever was, and, indeed, it is almost the only landmark which now divides the federalists from the republicans, that Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but were to those specifically enumerated; and that, as it was never meant they should raise money for purposes which the enumeration did not place under their action; consequently, that the specification of powers is a limitation of the purposes for which they may raise money. (Thomas Jefferson, via Quoty)

If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions. (James Madison, Letter to Edmund Pendleton, January 21, 1792 Madison 1865, I, page 546)

Please go over and take a look at RightKlik's post in which he does an excellent job of presenting the reasons why Obamacare is unconstitutional, unpopular, and illegitimate.

The Manhattan Declaration is:

Christians, when they have lived up to the highest ideals of their faith, have defended the weak and vulnerable and worked tirelessly to protect and strengthen vital institutions of civil society, beginning with the family.
We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are:

the sanctity of human life

the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife

the rights of conscience and religious liberty.

Inasmuch as these truths are foundational to human dignity and the well-being of society, they are inviolable and non-negotiable. Because they are increasingly under assault from powerful forces in our culture, we are compelled today to speak out forcefully in their defense, and to commit ourselves to honoring them fully no matter what pressures are brought upon us and our institutions to abandon or compromise them. We make this commitment not as partisans of any political group but as followers of Jesus Christ, the crucified and risen Lord, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Please sign the petition here for this very worthy cause.

 Eutychus posted the information on The Mahattan Declaration right from the start, so I am encouraging everyone to please check out his blog.

If the government isn't for us, then its against us. In my opinion, the government has proven itself to be illegitimate since the government if ever, but definitely now, no longer represents the will of the people. I believe that this government has become a domestic threat to our very being, our welfare, and our lives. The Obama administration is no longer (probably not ever) looking out for the best interests of its citizens. The "individual mandate" in Obamacare is unconstitutional. It may be time for us as citizens to follow in Martin Luther King Jr.'s footsteps and exercise civil disobedience to a government which would force its citizens to abandon their consciences. We must continue the good fight to ensure that the Obama administration does not take away both our freedom and liberty.

Persuasive Evidence That Obama is a Muslim


Big H/T  goes to Most Rev. Gregori at his blog Let The Truth Be Known

10 Ways Government Hurts the Poor

A big H/T goes out to Chicago Ray for this article.

10 Ways Government Hurts the Poor

by Jerry Agar

"If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life." Henry David Thoreau

"I am from the government, I am here to help you." Scary Bureaucrat

In no particular order, and in my opinion, here are 10 ways the government does the opposite of its announced intentions.

1. Minimum Wage If you charge more for something, you sell less of it. Labor is no different than any other commodity for sale. As economist Walter Williams says, "If higher minimum wages could cure poverty, we could easily end worldwide poverty simply by telling poor nations to legislate higher minimum wages." A higher minimum wage means fewer jobs and makes it more difficult for people to start a small business. If you tell me you'll pay me X dollars an hour to do a job, and I say, "That's fine," why shouldn't I be allowed to do so? Why not just declare that everyone has to earn at least $100,000 a year? The answer is no different at $100,000 than it is at $15,000. It is just a matter of scale.

2. Taxes Business taxes are built into a product at a number of levels along the production and distribution chain, and then sales tax is added at the end. An ever-increasing government can appear to fund its growth by “taxing the rich” and to make business “pay their fair share,” but low income consumers pay a higher percentage of their total income in taxes. All products and services include taxes even when it is not obvious. For instance, rent contains property tax. Gasoline is highly taxed, but the actual tax rate is not listed at the pump.

3. Over-Regulating Over-regulating of business costs money for those enterprises that survive. Less money - less employment. Over-regulation leaves so many hoops to jump through that it distracts from the aim of the business or company, and thusly hurts expansion. Plus, it makes it all the more daunting to start a business Wasting money on losing propositions like sports stadiums - which are always sold to the public as economic development - takes money out of the economy, which ultimately costs jobs.

4. Health Insurance The law denying the right of people to buy health insurance across state lines results in less competition which means higher prices. Mandated coverage forces us to buy insurance we don't need. As economist Thomas Sowell points out, "Mandated coverages include alcoholism, acupuncture, breast reduction and treatment for baldness, among other things. You may just want insurance to cover you in case you get hit with some big-time medical problem, but many state laws will not allow an insurance company to sell you "major medical" coverage without all the add-ons that politicians and special interests have come up with." Does a single mother struggling to make ends meet, yet wanting to protect the well being of her children, really need to pay for baldness coverage (pun intended) in her health plan?

5. Unions Governments often work in favor of unions to the detriment of taxpayers in general and the poor in particular. Two examples are prevailing wage laws and the fight to keep Wal-Mart out of Chicago. Unions today primarily survive in the public sector, driving up the cost of government, which lowers the efficiency of the economy and its ability to create jobs.

6. Education Monopoly - the cap on charter schools and the unwillingness of so many government entities to give power to parents through a voucher system keeps the monopoly going. In Chicago the graduation rate is 50%, but the education monopoly will not even consider trying capitalism, now that socialism has failed. Monopolies never favor the customer – in this case the children of people too poor to escape bad schools.

My Rant on Health Care & Morality

This health care bill passing cloture last night is an utter disgrace to the American people. These Democratic politicians are giving every American citizen the middle finger by not giving a flying F***K what the majority of American people would want with regards to health care reform. This health care bill, if it passes the senate, will be the destruction of Amercans freedom as we know it today. This bill is tyranny being forced upon American citizens. This bill will raise costs, force health care to be rationed, eliminate competition, and force insurance companies out of business. This bill will utterly destroy our health care system. This bill will destroy our economy. This bill has nothing to do with health care at all. This bill has everything to do with stripping the American people of freedom and liberty. This bill is all about the Democrats gaining power and control over the American people.

All of these communists are following their Dear Leader of tyranny. These communist pigs must be booted from office in 2010. They obviously don't give a rat's ass about the American people. They are a bunch of selfish bastages.

Anyone that supports this bill needs to sent to either Venezuela, or Cuba to fully experience the "benefits" of communism with equal dismal health care to experience being equally financially poor. These people think that profits are evil. If they believe that profits are evil then they should give all of their profits up. Everyone that earns money is in a real sense earning a profit. If anyone wants a raise then they want to reap the benefits of making a profit. If you really do see profits as evil, than forfeit all your rights to profit. The people that think profits are evil will not apply that same principle to themselves. So, these people are a bunch of damn hypocrites.

Because of this liberal and/or communist infiltration into our society, we as a society have fallen away from God given principles and values. We need to return to these Godly principles and values so that our country will be saved from this attack on morality. These communists have infiltrated into our public schools and into our government and have made it crystal cle that they want no mention of God, period. Sure, anyone is allowed to say Allah and are not offended even though violent Jihadist extremists have killed over 3000 innocent Americans. People at the highest levels want to cover up for the Ft. Hood tragedy which was an act of terrorism. They distort Christanity and portray it as an evil when it is those very people that are evil. They just don't want to face reality and the truth. They spread hateful lies about Christianity. These secularists in our society must be stopped. Our Christiann principles must be spread far and wide. Let people hear the word of God all over this country. We must not be intimidated by the people who want to restrict our right to freedom of religion. These secularists want to distort our constitution and portray the words as freedom from religion instead of the actual words in the constitution, freedom of religion. This is false. We must spread the values that our in constitution far and wide. Let them see our Godly actions. This is the time to take a stand for morality and against the secularists in our society today. Let us promote individualism, freedom, liberty, and Godly values all across this land. God Bless America!!

Amazing Sarah Palin Has Interviews With Sean Hannity & Bill O'Reilly

Sarah Palin sold 300,000 copies of Going Rogue yesterday.

A H/T goes out to Gateway Pundit for this next article:

And, FOX News released these numbers today on Sarah Palin’s aprroval rating.

It’s climbing:

Despite being characterized by many as a divisive force in her party and the nation, Americans are much more likely to give Palin a positive rating (47 percent favorable) than another prominent female leader — Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (28 percent favorable). Moreover, about six in 10 Americans (61 percent) think Palin has been treated unfairly by the press, according to the latest Fox News poll.

A big H/T goes out to Soloman at his blog, The Wisdom Of Soloman, where he posted an excellent article and the interview that Rush Limbaugh had with Sarah Palin. Its great to listen to.
Here is an article called Sarah Amazing by James Lewis of the American Thinker:
I felt real pain when Governor Sarah Palin was trashed over and over again by hateful screaming libs last year -- just to demonstrate their vaunted compassion and tolerance, docha know? So they roundly assaulted her Down Syndrome child, her pregnant daughter, exploited her daughter's sleazeball boyfriend, ginned up false accusations in Alaska, and somebody burned down her church in Wasilla. Raging feminists around the country were ready to tear Sarah's hair out by the roots. A real media lynch mob.

It just proves beyond a shadow of doubt how the Left keeps boiling over with hatred and bigotry against normal, decent people. So-called "progressives" are just today's Stalinists. Not really nice people, you might say. More like fascist haters.

But I need not have worried. Sarah Barracuda has ‘em by the short hairs. Those howls of rage you keep hearing are being hurled just because Sarah is smiling and beautiful, and she's not yielding an inch to the Commissars of Political Correctness. She drives ‘em over the edge by being herself.


Invasion Of The Brain Snatchers

One explanation for the disease known as liberalism is that . . .

Aliens snatched the likes of Nancy Pelosevich, Rachel Madcow, Dingy Harry and the rest of their ilk, and brought them to the planet Imbecilia. The aliens sucked out all of their brains and injected each of their empty skulls with soil from Imbecilia called the mud of stupidity. Now, the dark sith lord of Imbecilia (Obama) has sent Pelosevich's pinchers and the rest of his minions to the United States to suck out all of the brains of its citizens, replace their brains with the mud of stupidity, and force zombiecare on all of the citizens.
Now, we intelligent, freedom-loving, Bible-reading, gun-toting Americans are fighting alongside Saracuda to stop and destroy the evil and stupidity known as liberalism.

H/T to

CCHD & George Soros- Its Worse Than We Thought


The host of a national Catholic TV talk show says that Catholic Bishops have to come clean on their funding of groups that undermine traditional values and promote radical social change.

Raymond Arroyo, host of Catholic television network EWTN's "The World Over" program, says that the evidence indicates that groups funded by the Bishops through the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) are actually "subverting" Catholic teaching on matters such as homosexual rights and abortion. He regrets that money being spent on such causes is coming at the expense of Catholic schools and hospitals facing funding shortfalls and possible closure.

Arroyo, whose November 13 show featured two major critics of the CCHD, is a graduate of the National Journalism Center (which also produced ACORN whistleblower Hannah Giles). He is a conservative who has a worldwide Catholic audience and can shake up the Bishops and the Vatican itself.

A regular guest on the Laura Ingraham radio show, where he comments on moral and religious issues, Arroyo has risked the wrath of the Catholic Bishops by devoting his EWTN program to exposing alleged corruption in the church. The Bishops are meeting in Baltimore this week.

An on-air caller to the EWTN show read a statement from a local Catholic Bishop claiming that EWTN is "not a good source of Catholic information" and disputing some of the allegations against the CCHD. But Arroyo shot back, quoting from an October 2 memorandum from Bishop Roger P. Morin, chairman of the CCHD, admitting that CCHD had funded groups in support of abortion rights and same-sex marriage, contrary to church teaching.

The timing of Arroyo's show was important. The annual CCHD collection is being held in churches this coming weekend--November 21 and 22. The theme of this year's collection is "Families are struggling. Faith is calling."

But Arroyo wanted Catholics to know that the CCHD has been plagued by charges of mismanagement and scandal. A group called Reform CCHD Now is urging Catholics to put coupons in collection plates, rather than money, informing the Bishops that the CCHD must be thoroughly overhauled.

In a video, the American Life League (ALL) has labeled the CCHD the "Catholic Campaign for Anti-Catholic Activities."

Arroyo noted that the evidence shows that while the bishops have been defending traditional marriage in states where it has been under attack, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is funding pro-homosexual organizations through the CCHD.


The President's Crotch Salute

You’d think, if he’s Commander in Chief, the least he could do is salute those killed!

Our Disgraceful President.  The man shows absolutely NO HONOR for our military.  Our so-called President(he doesn't act like a president should) has NEVER experienced being in harms way.  His big EGO bubble needs to be burst in a big way.  The man won't even show honor to our fallen troops who were killed at Ft. Hood by a Muslim extremist terrorist.

Zo Stands Up For Sarah Palin

Senator Lindsay Graham Excoriates Eric Holder

Yesterday, Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina excoriated Eric Holder. He ripped Eric Holder to shreds. I love it!  The Attorney General had much trouble responding to Graham's questions. Graham is right. The only reason Obama is backing Holder's decision is to appease his leftist base which is full of loons. This unconscionable decision will make history, and in a very bad way. The decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 9/11 mastermind, and four other terrorists has nothing to do with the security of this nation, safety of Americans, or even about justice. This is purely politics of the worst nature. This decision only has the potential for harm. It will expose and increase the threat level for all Americans.

We must put pressure on the Obama administration to reverse course, to think about the safety of The United States of America and all of its citizens, so that they will try these terrorists in a military commission instead of trying them in a federal court in New York City.

CATHOLIC LIBERAL WATCH: Do Not Donate To The CCHD Fund This Weekend

H/T goes to Gateway Pundit for this article.
Kathy S. sent this news about the upcoming CCHD drive planned for next weekend at Catholic Churches across the US.

I wonder if you are aware about the rapidly snowballing nationwide campaign AGAINST the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). One week from today, next Sunday, November 22, will be the annual bishops’ collection for CCHD in almost every Catholic church in America.

BIG NEWS is this: A few of the bishops have decided not to take up the collection–because of CCHD’s funding of ACORN, Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation, several other Alinsky-connected groups, many Marxist “social justice” and “social development” groups…
Think about that: On one hand, the bishops are all over Capitol Hill promoting the pro-life Stupak Amendment to the leftist health-care bill; on the other, they’re giving money to leftist groups that promote–surprise, surprise–abortion!

Some of us have been objecting to the ACORN funding for years. It took the Rathke embezzlement scandal to finally get CCHD to cut off ACORN funding last spring. But dozens of other leftist, sometimes blatantly Democrat-Party-building groups have gotten hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions by well-intentioned Catholic parishioners who donated to “help the poor”–not knowing that the bishops were allowing their money to go to such objectionable organizations.

Richard A. Viguerie, a a conservative figure and writer on American politics, has written to other Catholic lay men and women throughout the nation to inform them of the nature of the organizations which are supported by the Campaign for Human Development. His letter is posted today at Christian News Wire:

You probably think you’ve never given money to ACORN and its allies. But if you’ve contributed to the annual November Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) appeal of the Catholic bishops, you’ve done just that.

Each November, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops asks Catholics across the United States to contribute to the CCHD. Until last year, much of this money collected by the bishops’ appeal was funneled directly to ACORN.

Are you going to again let the bishops use your contributions — money that’s intended for charity — to promote extreme left-wing causes such as taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand?

Or are you going to take the ACTION STEPS listed below, to stop charity money from being diverted into causes you (and most Catholics) find abhorrent?

Scandals have forced the bishops to stop funding ACORN directly, but they still fund other groups closely tied to ACORN — groups that have the same aims and that use the same methods to promote a left-wing, extremist agenda.

Catholics are led to believe that their contributions to CCHD are used to help the poor — funding soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and other worthwhile projects that provide aid to the least fortunate among us.
In fact, it appears almost none of the money goes to the poor.

Rather, it goes to organizations that engage in “community organizing” to promote a political agenda that many Catholics would find abhorrent, if only they knew. CCHD’s stated goal is “breaking the cycle of poverty,” but CCHD-funding organizations support policies that make it next to impossible for the poor to escape their circumstances.
It’s time for America’s Catholics to rise up, let their voices be heard.

This group of conservative Catholics is urging church members not to participate in the CCHD Drive until the Catholic Church can guarantee that the funds are not going to radical organizations like ACORN that oppose the Catholic church doctrine.

BLACKANDGOLDFAN does a great job of expanding on how the Catholic Church is connected to liberal groups and George Soros. Please go check out her great post at her blog, The Right Stuff.

NYC Prison Guard Maimed by Al-Qaeda Says Don't House Terror Suspects in NYC

This is an article I found on Jihad Watch.

Former NYC prison guard blinded, nearly raped by al-Qaeda inmates warns against plan to try jihadists in city

Is anyone in D.C. listening, or are they too busy playing politics and putting the supposed symbolism of the trial over the array of obvious security concerns? Louis Pepe Update, and an update on this story. "Blinded Prison Guard: Don't House Terror Suspects in NYC," by Joseph Abrams for Fox News, November 16 (thanks to Sam):

The high-security prison in New York City where 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is expected to be sent to await his trial has a supermax wing to keep even the most notorious criminals quiet -- but it isn't perfect. Just ask Louis Pepe.

Ten months before Al Qaeda in 2001 struck a deathblow in the heart lower Manhattan, one of the terrorist group's founding members plunged a sharpened comb through Pepe's left eye and into his brain, blinding the 42-year-old prison guard and causing severe brain injuries that plague him to this day.

Pepe told he worries that sending Mohammed and four of his alleged fellow 9/11 conspirators to New York could compromise the safety of the guards at the MCC prison. Keeping the prisoners in one location, he said, was especially dangerous.

"Could you imagine over there what they're gonna do, God forbid?" asked Pepe, now 52, who lost feeling in the right side of his body and most of his ability to speak. "After all these years, you'd think they should know."

On Nov. 1, 2000, Pepe was ambushed in the cell of Mamdouh Mahmud Salim -- an alleged top aide to Usama bin Laden. Salim's cellmate, another Al Qaeda suspect, joined in the attack, which prosecutors say was an attempt to steal Pepe's keys to the cell block to free other prisoners and take hostages.

The two had been granted permission by a federal judge to purchase hot sauce, says Pepe's sister, which they then stored in a honey jar and used to create a blinding mace. Teaming up against Pepe, they beat and blinded him, covering the floor in his spattered blood. They then tried to rape him as he waited an entire hour for fellow guards to come to his aid, his sister said.

"They wanted to discredit the badge and what he stood for," Eileen Trotta told "After they plunged him in the eye with that makeshift knife, they did the sign of the cross on his chest."

Trotta said it would be like "deja vu" to see more Al Qaeda detainees shipped into New York for trial, where their court hearings will be just blocks from Ground Zero

"There's no reason why everything has to be in New York, especially after 9/11 and what happened to Louis," she said. "It doesn't make sense -- why bring them into the hotbed of the city?"...


Doubt? Funding Terrorism? (Video)

Obama wants to enable Muslims to fund terrorism??? WTF???

We must stop this....

This dishonorable pond scum wants to allow Muslims to pay less taxes than you and I. This is outrageous!!!


This man is a freaking Muslim sympathizer.  He is not committed to fighting against terrorism. We have seen Obama give money to front organizations for terrorism over the past 10 months of his presidency.  This removes no doubt in my mind that since he was raised a Muslim, lived in a Muslim country,  that he still in fact thinks of himself as a Muslim. He is no Christian.

We need to stop Obama from ruining our country

Obama & Holder: Do They Hate America or Do They REALLY Hate America?


Eric Holder, President Obama, and all the officials in the Obama administration decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other terrorists in a New York courtroom is unconscionable!!!!! This is pure political malice. But, do any of these bastards have a conscience? It seems NOT. Obama, Eric Holder, and the members of the Obama administration only want to create a show trial against the Bush administration. It is clearer to me than ever that ALL of these people HATE AMERICA!!

The Obama administration is treating these terrorists as if they are merely common criminals that were taken off the streets of in the United States. These terrorists were not picked up off of any of our streets but rather captured overseas in the midst of a WAR. These killers are terrorists. These terrorists are co-conspirators in the 9/11 attacks and declared war upon us. We have vowed to "Never Forget" 9/11. It seems as though that this current administration has forgotten about 9/11- One of the greatest tragedies in our nation's history. Our brave military men and women captured these terrorists while fighting a war overseas. We are still at War. Or, has this administration forgotten that? Maybe, since Obama and his cronies continue to dither while our heroes keep on waiting for an answer to General McCrhystal's request for additional troops. This adminstration continues to undermine the war effort, as they did during the Bush presidency. Obama, Eric Holder, and officials in the Obama administration are so anti-military, its unbelievable. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the four other terrorists need to be tried properly - in front of a military tribunal. All of these leftist, progressive, commies undermined the Bush administration's efforts to enact justice on these terrorists. But, the terrorists even want to plead guilty in front of a military commision. So, why are you going to make this into a circus freak show and complicate matters when there is a very simple solution. Mr. President, if you cared about this country at all, you would let the terrorists plead guilty in front of a military commission, and then have them executed in a timely manner instead of dragging this process on for years.

I am pissed... So, outraged.... This commander-in-chief makes me utterly sick.... This decision to hold trials in NY for the mastermind of 9/11 and four other terrorisists is outrageous!! And, one more time, I will say that this decision is unconscionable!!! We need to stop this tragedy from happening. Protest, protest, protest. Let these America haters hear us loud and clear! We will not let you disparage and disgrace this country. We must fight to keep our nation's honor.

God Bless America!!!!!

STOP Obama administration America Haters!!

STOP Eric Holder, America Hater!!

STOP Obama, America Hater!! He is the Obamanation of America!!

To stop this travesty from occurring, here is a link to sign a petition to stop these trials from happening in New York.

Amazing!!! Liberal Blogger Praises George W. Bush

Below is a link to a comment thread that I think all conservative bloggers would be proud to read.  There is a liberal blogger praising George W. Bush. Its amazing!!! The comments are really interesting to read.  Its interesting to see how many people have changed their minds about George W. Bush, and would rather have him back in office rather than the disgraceful Dear Leader residing in the White House now.  Lets thank Hillbuzz for a powerful and inpiring post. Hillbuzz has definitely had a change of heart. Lets encourage Hillbuzz's conversion.

Honoring Our Military on Veterans Day

On Veterans Day, it is with great pride that we honor our brave men and women who are serving in the military today as well as those who have served in the past. All of our heroes deserve not only to be honored today but also, every day of the year.  Our heroes have made extraordinary sacrifices to defend our nation and some have made the ultimate sacrifice in order to defend our freedom. May God keep our troops safe. Here are some videos honoring them.

I Had a Fabulous Time at the Michele Bachmann Rally in Washington D.C.

I had a fabulous time at the rally in Washington D.C. on Thursday, November 5th. It was wonderful hearing from Michele Bachmann, Jon Voight, Mark Levin, and many other politicians at the health care protest. In the latter part of the afternoon, a group of us were able to meet with one of our congressman Jason Altmire(PA-D). He is a damn wiffle-waffler!!! The man irks me because he would not commit to anything. He said that he would not vote for a health care bill if that contains certain items in it. Which this does. But, he still wouldn't commit to voting NO on this Bill.
I said to Rep. Altmire,"Are you really listening to us? Or are our words just going in one ear and out the rest? This Health Care Bill has nothing to do with health care. This is about taking away our freedom and liberty." Well, I didn't get a response from him. He did end up voting against Pelosicare but, I think he was waiting for Speaker Pelosi to tell him how to vote. I think that he was waiting for the evil witch to wave her wand, and give him a command on whether he could vote Yes or No, on Pelosicare. Even so, I did appreciate him taking time out to listen(maybe?) to us.

U.S. Catholic Bishops Pro PelosiCare: USCCB Anti-Liberty??? & Anti-Freedom???

The USCCB(United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) was NEVER AGAINST this health care bill. As a Catholic, I am appalled at the way the Catholic Bishops are perverting Catholicism and promoting liberal propaganda. The Catholic Church endorses tyranny upon the people as long as it ends up benefiting them. This is disgraceful. This is despicable. They only care about putting the tax burdens on the people so that they (the CHURCH) do not have to pay for it. The liberals only care about separation of church and state when it DOES NOT benefit them. The Church stood up for the sanctity of human life. I am happy about that. But, in all actuality the USCCB needs to stay the heck out of the health care debate. They need to focus on being good leaders. Maybe, they need to take a leap backward and go back to the seminaries, so that they can learn how to become good leaders who promote good traditional Catholic values, instead of this liberal garbage that they have given into spreading and ruining the mnds in churches. OUR CATHOLIC BISHOPS HAVE GIVEN INTO MORAL RELATIVISM and the powers of EVIL. There was NO SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE!!! Every person should be outraged at this fact. The Catholic Bishops want to force us to provide for illegal immigrants who came here ILLEGALLY. I do think that these LEGAL MEXICANS should be helped, but in the proper venue. The proper venue is NOT HERE IN THE U.S., but rather in Mexico. Both America and Americans should help Mexico so that Mexico can help its own citizens. But, over in Mexico, where they belong, until they are willing to come to the United States the proper way. The Bishops should be getting on Mexico's case and strongly urging them to take care of their people. But, oh no. According to them, its acceptable for everybody to BREAK THE LAW and just come sneaking across the border into America as they please. I tell you what Bishops. Here's a challenge, because I am utterly fed up with you arrogant son of a guns. Bishops: You start walking the walk and not just talking the talk. I challenge our Bishops to actually spend some time in Mexico and help the country rebuild the infrastructure in Mexico. Call on businesses fom all over the World to start businesses and employ the citizens of Mexico. Call on the Mexican government to build and repair its infrastructure. Call on the government to help its poor. Please USCCB, actually do something, take responsibility, and take action for the lives in Mexico, instead of just pushing off that responsibility to one country in particular (United States) which wants to be able to secure its borders so that it can prevent another terrorist attack from occurring. Please be for our laws of governence and encourage ALL IMMIGRANTS TO COME HERE LEGALLY!!!!

In Cliif Kincaid  article he explains further how Catholic Bishops helped to pass Pelosicare.

20th Anniversary: Remembering Fall of The Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall was erected by the German Democratic Republic(GDR), and encircled the city of West Berlin, separating it from East Germany. The Inner German Border demarcated the border between East and West Germany. This Wall came to symbolize the Iron Curtain which symbolized both the ideological and physical boundary dividing Europe into two separate areas from the end of WWII to the end of the Cold War, in 1991. From 1961 and 1989, the Wall stopped emigration into West Germany. On November 9, 1989 the East German government announced that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany.

A Rant on Health Care & Mike Pence Speech (video)

Can the government really take care of our health care and plan our lives better than we as individuals can? What right does our government according to the constitution have to force any American to buy health insurance? No. Government has NO RIGHT!!  These Democrat thieves have NO FREAKING RIGHT!!! This administration makes me SICK!  Government has utterly no clue about health care. Goverrment has no clue about running any of the social programs. These stupid Democrats seem to think so even though all of their social programs have gone to pot. This is evidenced by the fact that ALL of the social programs that they have implemented since the time of FDR are ALL extremely close to bankruptcy. WTF??? We have some stupid people out there that think the government can do things better than the free market, when this has already been proven to be false. The government is keeping these people stupid on purpose. We must continue spreading the TRUTH and save our health care system from being destroyed like all the other programs that the Democrats have gotten their hands on. We must continue to fight to save our freedom and liberty! Here is Mike Pence fighting to keep our freedom and liberty.

Obama's Disgraceful Response to the Ft. Hood Shootings

President Obama has the ability to be eloquent when he wants to, and he DID NOT display eloquence during his press conference. He displayed NO COMPASSION and NO SYMPATHY for the injured soldiers and the murdered soldiers and their families. This incident called for our president to respond properly. He did not. Our Dear Leader did not display any emotions of shock or horror in response to this horrific incident. Our president disgusts me so much. Hasan, the shooter, screamed "Allah Akbar" which means "Allah is great" and "God is Great." Hasan is a Muslim. This is plain and simple. This was an act of DOMESTIC TERRORISM. There is no denying that fact. The MSM is trying to spin this act of DOMESTIC TERRORISM as an incident that occurred due to PTSD. He did NOT have PTSD. He had NOT served overseas. Hasan was honoring Allah and his Muslim religion. This Muslim religion is NOT the religion of peace. This was an act of Domestic Terrorism and Obama failed to call this sickening act for what it really was. Is this further evidence of what Obama's true religion is? With each waking day, Obama continuously attacks Christian beliefs and the morality related to the faith, displays such a detached and inadequate response to acts of Muslim terrorism committed against our soldiers, and dithers on making a decision on whether or not to send more troops to Afghanistan. These examples are further proof that Obama is NO CHRISTIAN. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the soldiers and families effected by this tragedy that was perpetrated at Ft. Hood Texas yesterday.

Women Say to Govt: Stay The Heck Out of My Health Care



Women are seen as a key constituency of Democrats, particularly on issues like health care. But current congressional proposals not only concern women, they may actually drive women away from the party.

The Independent Women's Forum (IWF) commissioned a survey to better understand women's health-care concerns. We asked extensive questions of 800 registered voters, deliberately taking a broad sample to be representative geographically, demographically, politically and philosophically. Forty percent of respondents self-identified as Democrats, 22% as independents, and only 32% as Republicans (the rest didn't offer a party affiliation); of the 81% who voted in the last election, 58% voted for Barack Obama. That makes the results all the more fascinating.

One key finding is that most women like their own care. Three out of four (74%) rate their own health care as good or excellent, and 77% think the quality of the care they receive is equal to or better than what others receive. Particularly surprising, given the nefarious reputation of insurers, was that two-thirds (66%) thought their insurance was good or excellent, and 73% thought that they had appropriate or even high quality insurance. (No insurer paid for the poll or contributes to IWF.)

Women, it turns out, see health-care reform as being for someone other than themselves. Three out of four women either want their own health care modified only slightly (40%) or think it's better left as it is (35%); 64% would rather have private insurance than a government-run plan.

Part of this is driven by the expectation that government-run health care will create new problems. Nearly half of the women in IWF's survey (46%) worry that government-run health care will result in more doctors leaving medicine. More than half (51%) think it will cause a decline in the quality of health care. Half think their family will end up paying more for health care, and 81% expect that it will lead to increases in the taxes they have to pay. Across the spectrum 76% of respondents felt that a tax penalty for not purchasing insurance was unfair.

My Thoughts on The Fight To Keep Our Freedom & The Fight Against Tyranny

As many citizens and I, continue to fight to keep our life, liberty, and our ability to be in pursuit of happiness from being destroyed from a war within our own borders, from keeping our constitution from being ripped to shreds, and fighting against tyranny that is being thrust upon us, here are some quotes that are from some brave men who fought against both tyranny and persecution. These quotes are quite apropos for these extremely turbulent times.

"Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants." Ben Franklin

"It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains." Patrick Henry

"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government -- lest it come to dominate our lives and interests." Patrick Henry
     Here is a quote from a great and courageous President who stood up for freedom and conservative principles and values:
    "I used to say that Politics is the second oldest profession [prostitution being the oldest], but I have come to realize that it bears a gross similarity to the first." Ronald Reagan These DEMOCRATS and RINOS are examples of prostitutes using the voters to get their next fix- whether it be  MONEY or VOTES. They don't care about us, WE THE PEOPLE. These Democrats and RINOS are using us and going against the American people and the constitution in order to achieve the power and control that they have craved like that of hungry dangerous wolves. They are the pimps prostituting us out to work like dogs while they do absolutely nothing for the citizens whom they are supposed to be representing. These politicians are supposed to represent us and not vise versa.   We are mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore!!
    Declaration of Independence
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
    The citizens of this great country are in for the fight of our lives. Literally. This is about keeping our health care between the patient and our doctor. This is about keeping the government out of our health care and our private lives. We must continue the fight against this threat to our liberty and freedom that is being pelted at us each and every day. Our government is out-of-control. Our government is way out- of- control!! We are coming to a crossroads as a nation and as citizens of The United States of America that we may have to make very tough choices because of the the long train of abuses and usurpations being inflicted on us by our government. This may call for people to take a stand for this country and against any and all domestic threats. I hope that it doesn't come to this, but this may be the start of a 2nd REVOLUTION!! I encourage you to take a look over at United Conservatives post on Freedom. She did an excellent job!! Enjoy!
    Thank You and God Bless Our Soldiers!!!
    God Bless America!!
