Obama’s Secret National Energy Tax


In a blatant unconstitutional attempt to bypass the legislative process, the Obama administration is seeking to impose a national energy tax via the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) [Article - 1. The Hill Newspaper: Energy Independence calls for broad array of sources | 2. The EPA's Backdoor National Energy Tax].

Statist leftists like President Obama, members of his administration, and many in U.S. Congress do not hold the U.S. Constitution in high regard.  They do not hold average, hard-working Americans in high regard.  They do not hold free-market capitalism in high regard.  It is evident they are now trying to absolutely destroy the American economy, no matter what.

Obama and his administration hold to the belief that humankind, more specifically those in humankind who happen to be American, have caused global warming and are destroying the planet.  Anthropogenic global warming has already been proven to be based on questionable science.  The so-called “scientists” who have promoted anthropogenic global warming have been exposed as liars and frauds.

Anthropogenic global warming is a HOAX!!!  Obama and his administration are basing their policies on a HOAX [Article - Editorial: The Great Global Warming Hoax?]!!!  Who’s going to suffer from their reckless, destructive, economically-eviscerating policies?  Every American…with the exclusion of the very leftist elitists who are imposing their draconian desires upon those whom they view with utter contempt and hatred.  Nobody dare get between them and their twisted, warped vision of what their Shangri-la world should be like.

Topped by all of the out-of-control spending Obama and the spend-o-crats have already tallied up, coupled with the looming government-controlled health care legislation—another potential economy-killer, Obama’s so-called “climate change” legislation-by-proxy will most definitely transform the country, but not in the way he envisioned it to be (or did he?).  It will transform the United States of America into the world’s largest third-world country [Article - 1. Deming: Cap and trade bill will wreck U.S. economy | 2. U.S. Chamber Official Warns That Cap And Trade Bill Will Destroy Jobs | 3. Cap-and-Trade bill does nothing for oil dependence].

It’s becoming more and more evident that Obama and other statist politicians in the United States are unconcerned about the plight of the American people and those who have fallen victim to financial hardship.  They care not one iota about those who are unemployed.  They couldn’t care less about the condition of the average American citizen.  Why are they intent on driving our country into a cauldron of turmoil, suffering, and despair for years to come?  Why do they feel it fitting and proper to impose rules and regulations that do nothing to build up and enrich the American way of life?  Why do they insist on ignoring the will of the American people by passing legislation that will do nothing for our country’s economy?  Why are they scheming and conspiring behind closed doors to do our country harm by trying to stealthily slip their authoritarian edicts behind the backs of the American people, brazenly subverting the provisions set out in the U.S. Constitution?  Those questions and more must be asked of our country’s politicians.  The American people need to stand up and put a stop to abuses of power by any means, short of armed uprising.  I am afraid; however, that if our country’s leaders will not listen to loud dissenting voices and continue to ignore the citizenry, there will be no other choice but to forcibly remove those obstinately self-righteous leaders.  Pray that day never come.

Obama Reveals His Hand On Reconciliation


While it was not acceptable to Obama during the G.W. Bush years, it is now just fine and dandy that statist Democrats use the reconciliation process to cram ObamaCare down our throats. He did not go out and say the word “reconciliation”, but he did utter the words “up-or-down vote”—code for reconciliation [Article - Healthcare reform: Obama nudges Congress toward reconciliation].

In the words of Senator Robert “Sheets” Byrd (D-WV):

I very rarely agree with Senator Byrd, but in this instance I have to say he is right.

When has reconciliation been used and under what circumstances?  Please refer to the following: Read More…

Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning Holding To His Guns


Ignoring both Democrats and fellow Republicans, Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) is holding to his guns by preventing unemployment benefits extension from going through.  The reason?  Funding.  All that Senator Bunning wants is for funds from unspent stimulus to be used for the benefits extensions.

Statist Senate Democrats, left-wing media, and leftist bloggers are criticising Bunning for the stalling tactic.  Evil Republican Jim Bunning is denying the unemployed their benefits.  Perhaps they will blame Bunning for killing unemployed Americans?  Statists point to Bunning’s silence during the G.W. Bush years of defense spending and tax cuts, which supposedly added to the deficit [Article - 1. Top Democrats look to shame Bunning on unemployment benefits filibuster | 2. Unemployment benefits end today; extension not approved by Senate].

Here’s where the statists are wrong:

1. The Bush tax cuts increased government revenue.  How?  Employers could afford to hire more people to work.  The fewer people unemployed, the more that entitlements are reduced.  The more people who were working, the more tax base the government had.  The more tax base the government had, the more tax revenue that was collected.

2.  Defense spending is a necessary part of the federal budget.  The only part of the budget that is larger than defense spending is entitlement spending [Article - Entitlements Crowd Out Defense Spending, and It’s Only Getting Worse].  The statists who hate the military will never understand, nor recognize that fact.  This would also explain their ignorant comments on the defense budget.  They tried again and again over the years to defund our military out of existence.  Their disdain for the country’s servicemen and women is well-documented.  None of them can say they are patriotic Americans and that they support the troops while taking their funding away at the same time.  That is something two-faced liars do.

3.  The issue at hand is not dealing with defense spending or tax cuts.  The issue is how to pay for unemployment benefits.  The money for stimulus has already been allocated.  Why not use some of those funds for unemployment extensions?  This garbage about being against the rules should not be a problem for the current Congress and presidential administration, since they have consistently broken the rules over the past year anyway.

4.  Nobody would be talking about extending unemployment benefits if the Obama stimulus would have worked in the first place [Article - 1. Shrinking U.S. Labor Force Keeps Unemployment Rate From Rising | 2. Obama: Stimulus Has Saved 2 Million Jobs | 3. The 'Stimulus' Actually Raised Unemployment | 4. Fact Checking Team Obama's Stimulus Claims].

Harkin: ObamaCare Will Pass With Or Without GOP


Big surprise here:  Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) says that health care reform will pass with or without GOP support.  These should be welcome words for anyone who is opposed to the brand of health care reform that President Obama and other leftists politicians are wanting to force upon an unwilling American public [Article: Harkin: Health reform will pass – with or without GOP support].

Obama was correct about something.  After ObamaCare is rammed down our throats, even when a majority of the American people don’t want the Democrat version, he’s right—that’s what elections are for.  After November of this year, it will be a lot more difficult for leftists in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to fulfill their utopian socialist agenda [Article: Obama warns Republicans he will pass health care].

Thousands Protest Man-Made Global Warming


Thousands gathered in Washington, D.C. to protest man-made global warming. Needless to say, they received a very cold reception from the Obama administration and leftist environut politicians.

Looks like a hostile crowd to me.

Note: This is for entertainment purposes. If the likeness of any of these figures resembles any person living, dead, or otherwise, it is purely coincidental. If any snow person (I want to be PC here) is offended by what is presented here, please melt as quickly as possible. If any leftist nut job in defense of defenseless snow people is offended—get a friggin’ life…or better yet, “chill out”!

Why Should The GOP Show Up At The Obama Health Care Summit?


President Obama will be staging a televised production known as a “health care summit”.  To be sure, the leftists in attendance will deliver their spoon-fed talking points and make sure to mention the GOP as being the party of “no” at least 100 times or more (exaggeration?) [Article - Let's scream at each other about health reform].

If leftists like Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et al want to use the summit as a platform to attack and smear the GOP and I think it would be a mistake on the Republicans’ part if they don’t think that is what will happen, I say we should let them spout talking points given to them by their left-wing base and rehash worn-out rhetoric from the past year for all the viewers to see and hear.

What the Republicans need to do is be concise, direct, and non-confrontational.  They should state their case before the American people and offer up their ideas, which have been constantly turned down by Obama and congressional Democrats.  The Obama administration has been so kind as to post them on the White House’s web site, so let’s see if Obama can put his money where his mouth is [A Bipartisan Meeting on Health Reform].

It shouldn’t take long for the Republicans to find out if the “summit” is just a forum to espouse leftist propaganda and Republican-bashing sputum.  If that turns out to be the case, they need to stand up, turn toward the door, and walk right out.

U.S. House Passes Health Care Reform Bill, Ignores Will Of American People


In a brazen act of defiance against over 50 percent of the American people, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her fellow leftist statists in the U.S. House of Representatives passed the monstrosity known as H.R. 3962 – Affordable Health Care for America Act [Article - House passes health care reform bill; Vote garners only one Republican].

The snag in the works was getting so-called “moderate” “Blue Dog” Democrats to vote for the “deficit neutral” bill. How did Pelosi get so-called “Blue Dog” Democrats to vote for passage of the bill? There was certainly some arm-twisting that was done by leftist Democrats and President Obama himself; however, by simply inserting a stipulation known as the “Stupak Amendment“, which limits, but does not eliminate coverage and funding for abortions, that’s all it took for so-called “moderate” Democrats to submit an “up” vote.

Never mind the insertion of items that don’t have anything to do with health care reform and that raise taxes on people whom President Obama promised would not be taxed. Never mind that over 50 percent of Americans do not want a public “option” or in other words, government-run health care [Rasmussen Report - Health Care Reform].

Self-serving, hyper-ambitious politicians on all levels of government do not care about the will of the American people. They do not genuinely care about the health and well-being of the American people. They have proven time and again that they are nothing but a group of haughty, arrogant, elitist power and money grabbers with an aristocratic sense of predestinate entitlement.

The next election cycle is only a year away. A lot can happen in a year and those who want to retain their positions of power will do their best (or worst) to pull the wool over their constituents’ eyes in an effort to get re-elected. They know that the memories of the people they claim to represent are short. They are banking on that knowledge because it is a successful time-tested strategy.

So-called health care reform is only one link in a longer chain of enslavement that leftist bosses are forging for America. They are only a couple of links away from completing that chain. After the chain is complete, it will be almost impossible to break it.

What will you do? Will you vote for or against the chain? The 2010 elections should give us an indication.

Climate Change: Senator Barbara Boxer, Senate EPWC Approve Bill


Despite a GOP boycott, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), chairwoman of the U.S. Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee and other Democrats on the committee approved a climate change bill that would require cuts in greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent over the next decade from 2005 levels [Article - Senate Panel Approves Climate Change Bill Despite GOP Boycott].

In typical overreaching fashion, leftist politicians are attempting to force unpopular economy-killing legislation through. However, there is a silver lining: The bill has passed committee, but it now goes to the Senate floor, where it is expected to die an ignominious death.

This goes along with a previously submitted ACW post, touching on how leftist politicians tirelessly and tenaciously try to further their destructive interests [Reference - German Chancellor Merkel And The Climate Change “Wall”].

To be sure, the battle to force through legislation based on junk science will continue. Without unwavering, steadfast opposition to leftist environmental lunacy, it is a guarantee that climate change legislation will be passed and the suffering of the American people will last for decades.

German Chancellor Merkel And The Climate Change “Wall”


Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of  the pulling down of the wall separating East and West Berlin in Germany. For the first time, a German head of state spoke before U.S. Congress. German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed members of U.S. Congress and one of the subjects Merkel spoke about was the need for a global deal on climate change [Article - Merkel meets with Obama, then talks to Congress]. Perhaps a symbolic appeal by Merkel to tear down the climate change “wall” [Article - The European Experience with Cap and Trade]?

With support for cap and trade legislation on the decline, President Obama vows that the United States will play a prominent role in decreasing global greenhouse gas emissions. Obama’s answer to the climate change question is cap and trade legislation.

The Waxman-Markey bill or rather, Taxman-Malarkey bill (H.R. 2998 – American Clean Energy And Security Act Of 2009) is currently in limbo, since health care reform legislation has taken center stage. Beltway politicians have certainly been working behind the scenes on slipping cap and trade legislation through, with very little public scrutiny…so they hope.

If the United States agrees to comply with some sort of global climate change contract in Copenhagen, Denmark, this will surely embolden leftist environut anti-capitalists in America to get climate change-related cap and trade legislation enacted.

If such a bill goes through, it will destroy the American economy, no ands, ifs or buts about it. We think unemployment is bad now, wait and see how high it will be if cap and trade becomes law. In addition, we and future generations of Americans will pay dearly for the taxes, fees and other costs climate change legislation will incur [Article - Leading Climate Scientist: Cap and Trade Could Ruin US Economy | Reference - Treasury Department – Climate Change Bill Could Cost American Families $1,761 A Year].

Lord Monckton: Climate Change Treaty Will Bring About Marxist World Government


On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton, chief policy advisor to the Science and Public Policy Institute, issued this stern warning:

Right on queue, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown recently issued this statement in reference to the upcoming Copenhagen climate change summit:

What would be the most convenient way to oppress the world of mankind for decades to come? What would be the best way to destroy western civilization and/or capitalism once and for all? What would be the most efficacious method of bringing about a one-world government? Global climate change.

A group of global elitists could easily control who and what they want, all in the name of saving the planet or averting a global “crisis”. Remember what Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said: Read More…

Going Nuclear: Health Care (Insurance) Reform Legislation


With conservative and moderate Republicans and Democrats being opposed to a public “option” being included in any health care (insurance) reform legislation, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has threatened to use reconciliation or the “nuclear” option to ram health care (insurance) reform legislation down America’s collective throat [Article - Reid Threatens 'Nuclear Option' to Pass Health Care Reform as Panel Starts Work].

What’s more, a draft of the U.S. Senate’s health care (insurance) reform legislation will not be available for the public to read and research. So much for transparency [Press Release - 1. Bunning Introduces Transparency Resolution | 2. Bunning: Democrats Are Intent On Keeping Americans In The Dark].

There has been talk of passage of a watered-down bill that would leave the way open for any public “option” amendments or other amendments that would receive stiff opposition if they were inserted in committee [Article - 1. Boehner Decries “Phantom Amendments” Added to Senate Health Care Bill After Committee Vote | 2. The Vapor Bill – Congress’ Secret Plan to Pass Obamacare - Update | 3. New plan might allow Dems to slip public option through Senate].

Go ahead all of you power-hungry, self-serving, leftist politicians—force through legislation that the American people don’t want [Article - Reconciliation 101: A "Nuclear" Abuse of Power]. I’m sure most if not all of you know that you are going to be committing political suicide. You claim to care about the wants and needs of the American people. If you continue to defy the will of the people, with elections coming up, the people will show just how much they care about you.

More Indoctrination Of Children? What’s the excuse now?


More indoctrination of our country’s children, this time it’s in Asheville, North Carolina. What’s the excuse now? Was it Black History month?

This was at a PTA meeting, no less. How many parents in attendance were offended? I didn’t hear any background noise in the video, so I assume that parents who were offended didn’t want to take school officials to task in front of their children. They likely waited until after the “show” to calmly and tactfully express their displeasure. At least, I hope that was the case and that they just didn’t sit there passively after their children were finished spreading leftist propaganda.

Obama: Iran Secretly Built Another Uranium Enrichment Facility


President Obama said that Iran has another uranium enrichment facility, which is in clear violation of U.N. resolutions [Article - 1. Iran Reveals Existence of Second Uranium Enrichment Plant | 2. Leaders React to Iran’s Nuclear Facility | 3. Iran's key nuclear sites].

This is no revelation to those who have been researching and investigating Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Iran has been building up its nuclear program since 1974. The program was in stasis for a few years as a result of the 1979 revolution, but started back up in the 1990s.

The G.W. Bush administration had been ramping up pressure on Iran to cease enriching uranium for the express purpose of producing weapons. However, this was seen by state-run media and leftist politicians as a tactic to divert attention away from Iraq, Afghanistan and the global war on terror. Not surprisingly, their views on Iran have changed, since Obama became President.

What the present leaders of European nations and the United States fail to recognize is that Iran and other nations like it don’t play by the so-called rules. They don’t care about world opinion. They share the same goal, that being world domination, at any cost. There can be a million sanctions against Iran and it won’t stop them in their quest to destroy those who don’t share their world view or their fanatical ideological views [Article - Ahmadinejad: Iran 'Will Never Negotiate' Over Nuclear 'Rights'].

I share the same sentiments as Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu in his most recent address to the U.N. General Assembly: Read More…

He Wants Your Kids (Continued): School Children Sing About Obama


In keeping with the theme of a previous ACW post, video of school children singing the praises of the esteemed ruler, savior of the world, potentate and “god” (with a small “g”) Obama has been released:

I wonder how many more schools are allowing this to happen. Given the dismal condition of America’s public education system, one would think that our country’s schools should be concentrating on actually educating our children, instead of singing songs praising a person who has done nothing to raise the spirits of every American, since he has been inaugurated. Politics should stay out of pre-elementary, elementary, junior high and middle schools, period. There are political science-type classes in high school, but lesson plans of those classes should be neutral in political affiliation and not promote one ideology over another. Read More…

Obama Advisor Axelrod: No Health Insurance Across State Lines


David Axelrod, one of President Obama’s senior advisors, reveals a little bit of the truth regarding leftist plans for the insurance industry. To his credit, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer of all people, grills Axelrod as shown below:

After bumbling, stumbling and fumbling through Blitzer’s questioning, Axelrod finally defines what the Obama administration is in his statements: President Obama, his administration and other leftist politicians are anti-capitalists. Most, if not all of them are Marxists. They are no more concerned about the American economy than Hugo Chavez or Fidel and Raul Castro. All they care about is furthering their radical leftist agendas. The more they talk, the more of their radicalism they let slip out [Article - Axelrod nixed selling health insurance across state lines].

ObamaCare Plans Still Lead To Government-Run Health Care


As they stand, here are the health care plans that either made it to the U.S. House or U.S. Senate floor or are undergoing alterations in committee:

America’s Healthy Future Act of 2009

Affordable Health Choices Act (Kennedy Bill)

H.R. 3200 – America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009

Quite a few people have read and researched the legislation. They have provided their analyses and have provided information from their analyses in Internet-friendly form. Take your pick from the plethora of links provided below: Read More…

Ignored: H.R. 3400 – Empowering Patients First Act


Yet again more from the so-called party of “No” and the party with no fresh ideas. Another conservative health care reform bill, submitted to the U.S. House floor back in July, that was referred to committee, but has since then made it to the committee scrap heap along with H.R. 3218 – Improving Health Care for All Americans Act:

H.R. 3400 – Empowering Patients First Act or Help Efficient, Accessible, Low-cost, Timely Healthcare (HEALTH) Act of 2009

Conveniently, House leftists and the MIA (Media In Absentia) didn’t give another conservative bill (268 pages total) one ounce of consideration or air time [Bill Tracking - H.R. 3400: Empowering Patients First Act]. More of the same old worn-out conservative/Republican ideas? Oh that’s right, no public or government “option” in its contents. A bill that actually empowers the people, giving a patient the freedom of choice and taking personal responsibility for his or her own health care. Also contained in the legislation are provisions for tort reform, coverage for every American citizen, no coverage for illegal aliens, less of a tax burden to the American taxpayer and more cost control regulations governing the health insurance industry [Press Release - Putting Patients First!].

Compared to the monstrosity known as the  over 1,100-page government-run health care bill (H.R. 3200 – America’s Affordable Health Choices Act), which includes the creation of at least 54 government agencies, government-educated, trained and paid physicians; tax increases to pay for such expansion, including all of the procedures to be covered and paid for, no tort reform (besides, you can’t sue the government), coverage for illegals, vaguely-defined government “exchanges”, equally vague descriptions of the various boards and panels a patient must refer and/or report to, mandates on patients for government-approved health care coverage, mandatory employer coverage, encouraging “competition” among the various health insurance companies, which is really no competition at all when they won’t be able to compete with government coverage, penalties for non-compliance or “opting out” of the public “option” and since government-run health care as it is described in H.R. 3200 will increase in cost over a short period of time, health care rationing will occur, I don’t know why leftists in the U.S. House of Representatives would want to make legislation any simpler.

Ignored: H.R. 3218 – Improving Health Care For All Americans Act


More from the so-called party of “No” and the party with no fresh ideas. A conservative health care reform bill, submitted to the U.S. House floor back in July, that was referred to committee, but has since then made it to the committee scrap heap:

H. R. 3218 – Improving Health Care for All Americans Act

Well now, I wonder why House leftists and the MIA (Media In Absentia) didn’t give this conservative bill (all 24 pages) any consideration or air time. I know, it contains the same old worn-out conservative/Republican ideas and it was completely overshadowed by the over 1,100-page government-run health care bill (H.R. 3200 – America’s Affordable Health Choices Act) that made it to the House floor [Press Release - Bill expands access to health insurance with tax credits, aid to states | Article - 1.

ACORN Investigation In San Bernardino: Shocking Footage And Admission By ACORN Worker


Yet another undercover investigation by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles involving child prostitution. This time they went to the left coast: San Bernardino, California. Is there any different advice given by the workers there? Let’s find out:

Wow! Shocking! The information does not change. It’s the same advice and much, much more for Mr. O’Keefe and Miss Giles. I guess it’s not an “east coast thing”. Tresa Kaelke, the ACORN worker in the video and being a former prostitute herself, empathizes with the “prostitute” portrayed by Hannah Giles. She is so understanding and helpful, being a free-thinking product of the 60s generation. She also freely discloses all of the politicians (even listing them by name) she lobbies for. Oh, but she doesn’t stop there. She goes on to reveal little tidbits about her past life and being married to an abusive husband, detailing that she…killed…him…in self-defense…. Read More…
