Yea, you read that right..  I am at a loss on explaining how this could be a good thing for the American People.  Are they (The Feds) afraid that in the event of an emergency (martial law) that US troops will not fire on US citizens if ordered to?  This is beyond the pale and unacceptable on so many levels it is beyond explanation.  THERE NEEDS TO BE A FULL AND COMPLETE EXPOSE’ AND INVESTIGATION DONE ON THIS NOW!!!  Here are the reports:

The idiocy of these young people is outrageous and they are all so eager to allow BO to destroy our nation and “fundamentally transform” it into a socialistic nation.  It sickens me and scares me because these kids will vote for him, not knowing anything about him, except what they have been told.  Like a bunch of lemmings, they will march right off the cliff with him, taking us with them……..

Opps! I’ve been found out………..

Yup, our “Middle Class” girl has been found out.  She touts herself as one of the 99%ers but in all actuality, she is in the 1%er league.  Click the pic for the story on her finances and lifestyle.  She seems to be talking some, shall we say, untruths?  I’m afraid to say what I really think because I would probably have some Dem thugs beating down my door…….

This article in the American Spectator is right on the mark.  It’s about time that the Democrat party was exposed for what it is, a race baiting, class warfare, hate-mongering bunch that lies and lies just to bamboozle the ignorant and simple-minded folks who don’t know enough or have the resources to go and get the historical facts about how their party is THE party that stood int he way of equal rights for minorities and Blacks EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!  It is the Republican party that has always championed equal rights for all.  It was Abe Lincoln who freed the slaves and it was and IS the Republican party that has always stood up for those who couldn’t, AND NOT LIE ABOUT IT!  Click the pic for the story.

Until I heard Dick Morris on Hannity today, I thought that we were going to be ok on this issue because it takes 2/3rds of the Senate to ratify any treaty, and since there is no way 2/3rds of the Senate would sign on to this, we were going to be good. Well, according to Dick Morris, in this case, this is not true. According to him, because the United States is a signator of the Geneva Conventions (I think this is what he said, I was driving and a little distracted, but the rest was clear), it will become binding upon the signature of the President and will remain so until the Senate votes to renounce it along with the President and Sec. of State. This of course will not happen if we lose these elections and even in the event of a lame duck senate, they will try to push this crap through. I urge you all to share this as much as possible and pass the word. Sign the petition and state your displeasure in the body of the letter to your Reps like I did.This is nothing short of an “End Run” around the Constitution and the will of the American Citizens and cannot be allowed to succeed.  These people MUST pay the political price at the polls this election cycle.  NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT , it is the Dems who are working feverishly to get your guns and turn this nation into just another socialist European nation and they must be taken out of office now!



After doing a lot of detective work, I was able to decipher what is really going on with this issue.  First, it was not the Geneva Convention that Morris cited.  It was the Vienna Convention.  Most of the hub-bub is about section 12 of this document which basically outlines the binding nature of the document via the signators.  After finding this information I was lead to Richard Nixon who sent this to the Senate; 

Now you will read on this document; 185 – Message to the Senate Transmitting the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the Optional Protocol Concerning the Compulsory Settlement of Disputes  May 5, 1969.  I underline the key thing here…  Finding this, I went to Thomas/Library of Congress  and did a search for treaty “Vienna Convention”.  This is what is shown for the treaty in question;

Type:   International Law and Organization
Countries:   un–multilateral
Formal Title:   The Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, signed for the United States on April 24, 1970

Legislative Actions   

Floor Action:   November 22, 1971 – Received in the Senate and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations by unanimous consent.

Committee Action:   August 03, 1972 – Committee on Foreign Relations. Hearings held.
Committee Action:   August 08, 1972 – Committee on Foreign Relations. Committee consideration held.
Committee Action:   September 07, 1972 – Committee on Foreign Relations. Ordered to be reported with understandings and interpretation.
Committee Action:   September 19, 1972 – Committee on Foreign Relations. Committee consideration held.
Committee Action:   November 08, 1973 – Committee on Foreign Relations. Committee consideration held.
Committee Action:   April 30, 1974 – Committee on Foreign Relations. Committee consideration held. Index Terms :  
T.DOC. 92-12
Control Number:  092TD00012
So as you can see, it was tabled and not ratified.  Therefore is non sequitur as it relates to this case in question.  Now there is another Vienna Convention treaty that WAS ratified, and that was  “VIENNA CONVENTION ON CONSULAR RELATIONS WITH OPTIONAL PROTOCOL”.  The information is as follows:
Treaty Number:   91-5
Old Number:   Ex. E, 91st Congress, 1st Session
Transmitted:   May 05, 1969
Type:   Consular
Countries:   n/a
Senate Executive Report(s):   91-9
Related Document(s):   Ex. Rept. 91-9

Legislative Actions   

Floor Action:   May 05, 1969 – Received in the Senate and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations by unanimous consent.
Floor Action:   October 21, 1969 – Reported by Senator Fulbright Committee on Foreign Relations, with printed report – Ex.Rept. 91-9.
Floor Action:   October 22, 1969 – Resolution of advice and consent to ratification agreed to in Senate by Yea-Nay vote. 81-0. Record Vote No: 130 EX. Index Terms :  
Control Number:  091TD00005
So with all this being said, it looks like Dick Morris is a little off base on this issue.  This Vienna Convention treaty has nothing to do with the subject matter at hand so it seems that the Senate will still have to ratify this Arms treaty should Hillary and Obama sign us into it.  From all the reporting I am finding, it will be DOA in the Senate as there ae more than enough votes to kill it.  Below I am including a bunch of links that lead me to my conclusions.  I hope this information helps.    Go to Thomas and research 91st and 92nd congress/senate vienna convention.  Here will be the definitive data on the subject…

According to this 2011 report from, Senator Maria Cantwell has done pretty well in the US Senate.  According to this report she is reportedly worth anywhere from $2 million dollars to $10 million dollars.  So, I am to surmise that Obama’s rhetoric about the evil million and billionaires, she is one of those he is talking about?  I guess so, but look at the company she has as a Millionaire.  Seems like the vast majority of the “D”s are in that catagory too.  It all seems a little schizophrenic that they spew hate about how the rich do not pay their fair share of taxes, and they are them….if you catch my point…  check out this spreadsheet with totals and averages I computed so you can make an easy comparison as to your net worth, and theirs.    If I was Michael Baumgartner, who is challenging her for her Senate seat, I would make sure that this information was used in his campaign. Oh, by the way; Check out Patty Murrays wealth too.  The “Mom in tennis shoes” seems to be doing well too, but I have a hard time believing it….Way too low when compared to her peers…..  Hey, I’m just sayin’……..

I just can’t believe how much money this fraud is making on this scam. People need to wake up!! Click the pic for the story from the UK

If you were to only listen to the climate change, flat earth, Marxist, socialists, you would think that mankind is the root of all evil and pollution, and in this case a horrible greenhouse gas called CO2.  Yea, that stuff that you exhale and the stuff that trees and plants need to survive (and by the way, produce oxygen in return).  Click the pic for the story from the UK.  At least they have journalists who will print the truth…….

Richard “I am not a crook” Nixon.. Click the pic for the story

I have been predicting that I will for some time.  His “Executive Privilege” order, in my opinion pretty much solidifies it.  The only reason for the order would be to keep something from the public that would prove to be embarrassing, such as, Obama not only knew of F&F, but approved of it.  Its a matter of what he knew and when he knew it.  This whole scandal will be about the death of a Boarder Patrol Officer and guns being given to drug lords in Mexico, PLUS a plan by the ATF to use F&F service of supplying guns across the border as an excuse to attack the 2nd amendment, which by the way, Hillary is trying to do by signing on the UN Inter-America gun treaty.  After all, what brought down Richard Nixon, was his cover-up of a break-in into a DNC office in the Watergate Hotel.  No one died as a result of his actions.  Obama, on the other hand, how many Mexican citizens have been killed by this program?  We know of hundreds, and at least 1 US Law Enforcement Officer…….  You see the difference?………..

I just wanted to post this just to reiterate, illustrate and highlight the acts of a President who evidently thinks socialism is okay, which just happens to be the antithesis of our government which espouses freedom and accountability.   There really isn’t a whole lot more to say at this point.  He is overtly tipping his hand.  Anyone else but me paying attention to this?  It is my prediction that between now and election day, we will witness conduct from the Office of The President we have never seen before.  We will bear witness to a man who will stoop to any low and say any thing in order to do whatever he thinks he must do to get his second term, which by the way, he will use to complete his agenda and “fundamentally change” our nation.  I hope the rest of the world is paying attention to this because the socialist/Marxist agenda will be in full exposure.  The world will either witness a nation win back its soul, or, sink into oblivion, resulting in the demise of our Republic and way of life….  I ask all those who relish and cherish freedom and The United States, to pray for us……..




Is this the HUGE information that Brietbart was referring to just before his passing?  Could be…  I guess Obama’s henchmen didn’t find this little piece of evidence when he sent them on their mission to find and suppress any and all historical data about him, ESPECIALLY if it confirms that he is not a natural-born American citizen.  I refer you to some of my earlier posts.  There are more, do a search for “birth” on this page and they will come up.

Must have had Shih-Tzu for lunch……….

Thanks to Dick Morris, this information has come to light about several sneaky things Obama and Hillary are up to; 1. International Criminal Court , 2. The Law of the Sea Treaty, 3. Small-arms control, 4. Outer Space Code of Conduct, 5. Rights of the Child.

This is truly scary stuff that if enacted would spell the end of the United States and its sovereignty.  This is no joke, especially if you consider the very real likelihood that this could all come to pass because,….if the Democrats in the Senate take a drubbing like I think they will, that will create the “Lame Duck” Senate that Obama would want and use to get all these treaties ratified, simply because all the outgoing Senators will not have anything to lose, they lost already, so who cares right?  I will be writing letters to my 2 Democrat Senators telling them to not even think about it!  I suggest everyone else do the same.  Click HERE and HERE for the information.

You can tell in this clip, Beckel is really worried after he comes to the realization that he really screwed up and is now contemplating the punishment for his “indiscretion”.  He like the rest of what I call, “The Rabid dog left”, need to do the same as he does now…..Shut up and learn how to be civil…….



How did Communism get a foot hold here in the USA? Click here to see the Caucus web site.

The short answer is, 1 IS TOO MANY!!!  But unfortunately that is not the case.  Is your Senator or Representative listed in this roster of members?  If so, you have a problem, or not, if you like communism…..

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding TRICARE.  I appreciate hearing from you on this important matter.

I share your concerns about keeping TRICARE affordable.  The health and welfare of those men and women who have bravely served our country both in times of peace and war deserve our full support.  To that end, I have consistently worked to ensure that any TRICARE fee increases proposed by the Department of Defense do not put an undue burden on our soldiers, military families, and veterans.

On December 31, 2011, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 into law.  This legislation included a provision which gave the Department of Defense the authority to increase TRICARE enrollment fees in order to help reduce the growing cost of healthcare within the Department of Defense budget.  These healthcare costs have grown from $1.5 trillion in 2001 to an estimated $2.7 trillion in fiscal year 2013, an increase of 84 percent.  The National Defense Authorization Act would tie TRICARE yearly enrollment fee increases to the annual cost-of-living increase provided to military retirees, which averages around 3.1 percent.

I am profoundly grateful for the service ofAmerica’s veterans and for the sacrifices they have made to defend and preserve our great nation.  As such, I believe we have an important responsibility to ensure that our veterans are provided the benefits and assistance that they so greatly deserve.  Please be assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues on behalf of the many veterans in the state of Washington.

Thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts on this matter.  You may also be interested in signing up for periodic updates for WashingtonStateresidents.  If you are interested in subscribing to this update, please visit my website at

China stealing our resources with a smile.......... Click the pic for complete details.

Yes, China is mining our resources in the gold ol’ US of A.  Who in their right patriotic mind would allow this to happen?  I can tell you, ALL THE POLITICIANS IN DC!  Yes, we have literally been sold out by or Representatives in DC.  Obviously to the highest bidder, and one I might add, does not give a damn about the USA, as demonstrated by their embargo on strategic rare-earth metals.  Who else out there saw this coming?  Really,  I want to know!!!  I guess the fact is lost on everyone except the citizenry who still had their head screwed squarely on their shoulders, unlike those in DC.  This has to stop.  I have a question; Why is it that China gets approval to mine and do whatever else they want to do, but US companies get the EPA boot on the neck?  Click here and here for the story and click the pic to go to the China Mining United site.

In watching this video, I find it very disturbing that this Council THINKS it has the right to shut the citizenry up and not allow dissenting voices to be heard.  I especially find it most disturbing that the Officers (or more aptly put “Thugs” were more than eager to violate this Priests 1st Amendment Rights.  Everyone on that council must be recalled or removed and those so-called “Officers” need to be fired.  Those guys need to figure out which side they are on, fascism, or democracy and the Constitution and Bill of Rights.  Those men in my opinion should be shunned along with their families.  Their conduct is despicable and disgraceful and un-American…..





As this article outlines, this bill is so draconian you might as well tear up the Bill of Rights.  I am appalled that Congress would do such a thing.  It is now legal to use the might of the United States military against its own citizens in the USA.  All the government needs to do is use the laws and guidelines, the very same ones I have been highlighting on this web site, determine that whatever you are doing falls within the “you might be a terrorist if” guidelines published by the DHA, and the next thing you know, you have the DOD breaking down your door at 3am and hauling you off to jail because simply, they can….  That IS where we are now thanks to the very people who we sent to DC to protect our rights and I am so very disappointed in my Rep.  She is a Freshman and was specifically sent to NOT do what she just did.  Check the list below to see how your Rep voted.  It is truly a bleak and black day in and for America………………

I am writing you to express my dismay at your vote concerning The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 2012.  Your main purpose in Congress, as stated by your Oath of Office was to protect the Constitution and the rights of the citizens of this nation.  Your AYE vote on this Bill is blatantly just the exact opposite.  While the poorly crafted language is seemingly aimed at persons inside the United States who are aiding identified terrorist organizations, the language is purposely vague so that it could be interpreted in very broad terms and conditions which can be “cherry picked” and used against the citizenry in most draconian ways.  This Bill effectively tears up the intent of The Bill of Rights as written by our Founding Fathers.  You know this and you still voted in favor of passage of this Constitution crushing legislation.  In my opinion, you are unfit to serve because you willingly violated your oath of office and violated the rights of the citizens of Washington State.  I will not in any way shape or form, support you in your upcoming election.  In fact I think you should be recalled immediately.  I anticipate that your response to this letter will include your rational for this betrayal to your oath and to the citizens you were supposed to represent.  In that light, it will be shallow and not acceptable as usual.



Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding military detention.  It is good to hear from you.  As you know, in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, the Bush administration devised a new detention system outside of established legal structures of the U.S. criminal justice system and military courts-martial. Through legislation and a series of high-profile Supreme Court rulings, both Congress and the federal judiciary took action to clarify and limit parts of the Bush administration’s detention programs.  Although President Obama has taken some important steps toward the fair and humane treatment of detainees, I believe much more work has yet to be done. I continue to support closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay and the ability of the Administration to try terror suspects in the U.S. federal court system.  The federal courts are well-equipped to handle these complex and difficult cases—since 2006, federal courts have successfully tried over 300 terrorism suspects while military commissions have tried only three.  I strongly support giving our military and intelligence agencies the tools they need to protect our nation and our service members. I understand some evidence against detainees may be too sensitive to national security to be presented in civilian court or may be tainted due to harsh interrogation techniques.  Right now, the Secretary of Defense and the Attorney General can decide whether to use a military tribunal or a federal court.  I believe the Obama administration should continue to have the flexibility to decide on a case-by-case basis, and I opposed Republican amendments during consideration of the National Defense Authorization Act that would strip the President of this authority.

Lawmaker obtains commitment to revisit detainee language


February 14, 2012

Thank you for contacting me about Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  It is an honor to represent the people of Southwest Washington, and it is important for me to hear from folks in our region.

I certainly understand your concerns about Sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA and how these sections impact our civil liberties and Constitutional rights.  I am a firm believer that your federal representative should take a proactive role in preserving your Constitutional rights.

I have not and will not support any legislation that would limit your Constitutional rights or allow American citizens to be detained under military authority and held without due process.  Please let me share with you why I believe the NDAA takes the proper steps to preserve your Constitutional rights and provide the President and our military with the tools they need to combat terrorism.

The NDAA reaffirms that the President may use “all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF)” against al Qaeda and the Taliban.  The AUMF was authorized following the September 11th terrorist attacks and had not been updated since it was originally sanctioned in 2001.  It is important to provide the President and our military with the resources they need to combat al Qaeda and the Taliban, and this bill accomplishes this goal by reaffirming current laws and without expanding presidential authority.

People had very valid and legitimate concerns about Section 1021 of the NDAA as it relates to the use of force.  Before voting for the NDAA I checked to make sure this legislation will not take away from or infringe upon your Constitutional rights.  The use of force does not apply to U.S. Citizens, in fact Section 1021, Subsection E which explicitly exempts U.S. citizens reads: (e) AUTHORITIES.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.

Section 1022 of the NDAA clarifies procedures for how non-U.S. citizens linked to al Qaeda or the Taliban are to be detained.  Evidence must be presented that demonstrates a foreign national’s link to al Qaeda or the Taliban in order for the detainment to be legal. This section clarifies that terrorists apprehended by law enforcement agencies must be held under military custody.  However, Section 1022, Subsection B explicitly exempts U.S. citizens and legal residents.  It reads:(b) APPLICABILITY TO UNITED STATES CITIZENS AND LAWFUL RESIDENT       ALIENS.—

(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States. 

(2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

Our country continues to be under the very real threat of terrorism, and it is important to make sure our military is proper equipped to protect our citizens.  It is equally important for us to take steps to preserve and uphold our Constitutional rights.  The NDAA accomplish both of these goals.

Thank you again for contacting me on this important issue. I invite you to visit my website at for additional information or to sign up to be kept up to date on this important issue. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.

Farage: What gives you the right to dictate to the Greek and Italian people?

How refreshing; A politician who has the guts to call it like he sees it:

I regard Dick Morris as one of the most politically astute people on the political scene today.  He was once a Democrat and served in Bill Clintons Administration, but has since seen the light and is now a Conservative who is also very concerned about the path Obama is taking us down.  In this video he explains his theory on what Obama’s plan is.  I think he is right….
