(UPDATED 090512) THE UGLY TRUTH ABOUT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND THE LIES THAT PERPETUATE THE HATE

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS THE PARTY THAT WANTS TO HELP ALL MINORITIES STRIVE TO BE SUCCESSFUL. ALL THE DEMOCRATS WANT IS TO MAKE AND KEEP YOU A SLAVE TO THEIR IDEOLOGY. CLICK THE PIC FOR THE INFORMATION FROM AMERICAN SPECTATOR..

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.

WHO DOES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT INTEND TO SHOOT? WHY ARE THE FEDS STOCKING UP ON AMMO?

CLICK THE PIC FOR THE STORY. YOU MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND…. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOING ON HERE?

As the writer of this article states his concern over the constitutionality of these agencies actions, I too am concerned as to how and why these governmental agencies were able to create their own individual police agencies.  Add in the recent shotgun purchases by the Department of Education, and I too get a queasy feeling in my belly about these recent acquisitions.  Being a retired law enforcement person myself, I understand the need for duty ammo and training ammo and the importance of training with what you carry on duty.  However, even with this being said, these purchases still don’t pass the smell test.  How are these police forces being administrated?  Who oversees their operations?  Who or what agency certifies these officers?  What is their code of ethics (if any)?  These are just a few of the questions I have and I urge all concerned to contact your Representatives and Senators and demand an inquiry into this matter.  Personally, I don’t believe that these agencies have a legal right to stand up individual police forces.  The formation of these police forces constitutes a massive increase in federal police officers and the manner in which these were formed, allowed the feds to stand up these agencies without public scrutiny or knowledge for that matter.

The United States is a unique and wonderful country.  Founded by men who knew all to well, the power and the corruption of a government out of control, with its boot on the neck of its citizens.  These men went to great pains to formulate a government based on the premise that “All men are created equal”  with “Inalienable rights” given only by God, not man, and that the peoples of the United States will be a nation free from tyranny and injustice.  In reading our founding documents, The Federalist papers, The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution, you get a huge sense of nobility and altruism that went into the crafting of each and every document.  While not perfect, our Constitution has been the bulwark against the very tyranny our Founding Fathers sought to protect us from.  However, it seem now that very powerful people in the Federal Government look upon the Constitution as not a document of laws, but as a document merely full of suggestions, to only obey if convenient…..This is how a government that is supposed to be for “We The People”, becomes a government of “We The Government”, behind our backs…….  We must hold our elected officials accountable and make them pay a huge price at the polls come november.  It is like Benjamin Franklin said, ” Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. “

WASHINGTON STATE SENATOR MARIA CANTWELL CROWS ABOUT THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, aka OBAMACARE

SHE MUST NOT GO BACK THE U.S. SENATE! Click the pic to go to her opponent and contribute to his campaign.

“Thank you for contacting me United States Supreme Court’s decision affirming the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.

On June 28, 2012, in the landmark decision of National Federation of Independent Business et. al. v. Health and Human Services et al., the United States Supreme Court affirmed the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PL 111-148). The Supreme Court’s decision is an important step in upholding a law that will help drive down the cost of health care and increase access to those who don’t have coverage. Many important provisions will help reward the State of Washington for its cost-effective, outcome-based, delivery system.

Due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, people can no longer be denied insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions. The law provides small businesses tax breaks for providing health insurance. It also will help provide cheaper prescription drugs for seniors, and will permit young adults to stay on their parents’ health insurance until age 26. It ends unfair penalties for Washington providers who deliver quality health care at a lower cost than other states, and it ensures Washington state’s Basic Health Plan will continue to serve as a national model for expanding access to care using bulk purchasing power. Finally, the law helps to build Washington state’s future health care workforce.

Ensuring that individuals have access to high quality affordable health care has always been a priority of mine. As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, I will continue to strongly advocate for increased access to quality health care, affordable health care cost, and improved efficiency of our medical delivery system.

Thank you again for contacting me to share your thoughts on this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

Maria Cantwell

United States Senator”

MY COMMENTS:  After all we now know about this Obamanation of a law, this poor example of a Senator has the chutzpah to crow about it now.  She is exposing herself for all of us to see what she really is, just another Liberal/Progressive who wants to make you a servant of big government who in-turn will be telling you what kind of healthcare you will be ALLOWED to have.  She is just another tax and spend liberal who believes that raising taxes is the answer to all our ills.  As I indicated in a earlier post, she is just another career politician, who happens to be one of those terrible millionaires who doesn’t pay enough taxes, but says we should pay more but I doubt that she pays any more that she has too.  Don’t ever lose sight of the fact that the $250k they talk about as the limit, those below won’t pay more, that $250k is gross pay, not net!  So almost all small business people will get hammered.  SHE IS A DYED IN THE WOOL LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVE PERIOD!  She must be voted out of office this election!

SENATOR MARIA CANTWELL (D) IS A MILLIONAIRE – HOW DID SHE GET HER WEALTH?

According to this 2011 report from Mediaite.com, 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’……..

IS THE TSA HIRING CRIMINALS AND PSYCOPATHS AS SCREENERS? REALLY?!?!?!

Is this the harsh reality of the matter? I hope not. Click the pic for the information

According to this article,a TSA Supervisor has come forward and state that the agency has been directed to hire wackos in order to help push the people into accepting the coming police state…..  Well, I really don’t know what to think about this so-called revelation.  Could it be that there are actually people in the Federal Government who are brazen enough to admit to this crazy, out of the blue, unreal,  “conspiracy” of sorts?  The really scary thing is,….  in this administration, I believe it’s possible.  If true, this revelation should stand as a shot across the bow of every citizen in this nation.  Is this where we as a nation and society want to go?  Are all the “alarmist” FEMA campers right?  Has our government been conspiring against us, and if so, will the patriots in the military allow this to happen or will they stand up and say NO?!   This in my opinion, is the crux of the matter.  How patriotic are our military members?  If this is true, I’ll guess we’ll find out……..one way or the other..

YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS VOTED TO HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO TRACK YOUR KIDS HEALTH AND SOCIAL PROGRESS

IS THIS THE TYPE OF FILE YOU WANT THE FEDS TO HAVE ON YOUR CHILD? (hypothetical example)

In the 2009 Stimulus Bill, there are provisions that allows the Federal Government the authority to maintain a file on your kids progress as they grow up and YOU can’t do a thing about it.  If this is not enough to indicate that this government is totally out of control and operating outside the confines and boundaries of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then, well, I am out of words…….  Read this story and contact your Representatives and give them a piece of your mind.  I heard that Montana is mounting a recall movement to remove the Senators who voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA).  Because the Washington State Constitution allows recall also,  I think the Citizens of Washington State should do the same, including all the rest who vote in favor of unconstitutional acts like this.  We citizens need to send a message loud and clear to these power hungry elitist.  We own this country, not them!  Click the pic for the story.

CBS REPORTS “FAST & FURIOUS” WAS TO BE USED AS JUSTIFICATION FOR MORE GUN CONTROL LAWS

NEED WE SAY MORE?

Yup, you read that right…., a mainstream media outlet is reporting that “F&F” data was to be used as evidence that more gun laws should be enacted.  This just goes to show how deep the sedition against the Constitution and Bill of Rights really is.  It is these very people in the Federal Government that must be weeded out and fired, never again to have any responsibility or avenues of influence in ANY government function.  Of course the problem is, many in Congress share that ideal.  Click the pic for the details. It sickens me…….

I am asking all voting Americans to contact your Senators and demand that they not vote in favor of this legislation, “S.1867 – Military Construction Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012”.  As much as I despise  the ACLU, they are right on this issue and we must not stand for this latest assault on the American Public.  You take the DHS publication on Extremism, and couple it with this legislation and  you will see that the forces inside the Federal Government that want to put us all in jail are still at work and is alive and well.  This could be the final shot across our bow that seals our fate.  If this language is left in this legislation and passes both the House and Senate and is signed into law, (which I have no doubt the current occupier of the WH will do) the great experiment called Democracy, that our Founding Fathers established, will be dead.  This is not an exaggeration or doom and gloom stuff.  If you don’t think so, you’re simply ignorant or not paying attention.  In either case, we’re all in trouble.    Click here and here for the details.

There is another issue with this legislation because it also covers the Tri-Care medical program that military retirees use.  It states;

SEC. 701. ANNUAL COST-OF-LIVING ADJUSTMENT IN ENROLLMENT FEES IN TRICARE PRIME.

(a) In General- Section 1097a of title 10, United States Code, is amended–

(1) by redesignating subsections (c), (d), (e), and (f) as subsections (d), (e), (f), and (g), respectively; and

(2) by inserting after subsection (b) the following new subsection (c):

`(c) Cost-of-living Adjustment in Enrollment Fee- (1) Whenever after September 30, 2012, the Secretary of Defense increases the retired pay of members and former members of the armed forces pursuant to section 1401a of this title, the Secretary shall increase the amount of the fee payable for enrollment in TRICARE Prime by an amount equal to the percentage of such fee payable on the day before the date of the increase of such fee that is equal to the percentage increase in such retired pay. In determining the amount of the increase in such retired pay for purposes of this subsection, the Secretary shall use the amount computed pursuant to section 1401a(b)(2) of this title. The increase in such fee shall be effective as of January 1 following the date of the increase in such retired pay.

`(2) The Secretary shall publish in the Federal Register the amount of the fee payable for enrollment in TRICARE Prime whenever increased pursuant to this subsection.’.

So what it saying is, if retirees get a COLA increase in their retirement checks,they will use Tri-Care to get it back…… This is the kind of back door, back stabbing legislation we Vets and Americans are sick of.  Those in congress who push this type of legislation must be voted out of office as we reform our REPRESENTATIVE form of government.

MY LETTER TO MY REPS ON THIS:

I am writing as your constituent in the 3rd Congressional district of Washington. I oppose S.1867 – Military Construction Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, and am tracking it using OpenCongress.org, the free public resource website for government transparency and accountability. This legislation is a direct assault on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and if you vote in favor of this Bill in its present form, you will be in violation of your oath of office and that will not go unnoticed. As Benjamin Franklin said on Feb 17th, 1775, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” This struggle we find ourselves in now is not to be used as justification to tear our democracy asunder. We citizens are relying on you to protect our inviolate foundational tenets and GOD GIVEN RIGHTS. We demand you do so or you will most definitely find yourself voted out of office come your next election cycle. As this letter is being sent to all three of my Representatives in Congress, this legislation will not go before the House unless the Senate gives it an up vote. If it is passed in the Senate and goes to the House, my Representative in the House will be held to the same standard as my Senators. Our Democracy is in danger, do the right thing and vote no on this democracy killing legislation.

REPLY FROM CANTWELL:  (sort of..)

Thank you for contacting me regarding the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.

Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) introduced the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 on May 5, 2011.  This legislation was passed by the Senate Armed Services Committee by a vote of 26-0 on November 15, 2011.  The National Defense Authorization Act is enacted each fiscal year to specify the budget and expenditures of the U.S. Department of Defense.  The National Defense Authorization Act for 2012 includes numerous provisions that relate to the treatment of terrorism detainees.  One such provision requires that any detainee caught on U.S. soil must be remanded to the U.S. military for custody.  This provision is strongly opposed by the White House and the Department of Defense; both entities have stated that it will limit current options available to our counter-terrorism officials. However, the legislation also allows the Administration to waive the mandatory custody requirement.  The bill also provides for an exemption for any mandatory custody transfer that would interfere with ongoing civilian law enforcement surveillance or interrogation efforts.  Please be assured that I will keep your thoughts should I have the opportunity to vote on these or similar provisions. I am profoundly grateful for the service of our brave men and women in the armed services and for the sacrifices they have made to defend and preserve our great nation.  As such, we have an important responsibility to ensure that they have the tools and resources they need to successfully complete their mission and return home safe.  Please be assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues on behalf of the many soldiers 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 Washington State residents.  If you are interested in subscribing to this update, please visit my website at http://cantwell.senate.gov.  Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,
Maria Cantwell
United States Senator

REPRESENTATIVE JAIME HERRERA BEUTLER (R-WA) REPLIES ON POSTAL REFORM ACT

HERRERA-BEUTLER

JAIME HERRERA-BEUTLER

November 2, 2011

 

Thank you for contacting me regarding the Postal Reform Act.  It is an honor to represent the people of Southwest Washingtonand I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) continues to provide Americans with an invaluable service obligation to homes and businesses across the country, ensuring that mail is delivered in an affordable and timely manner.  The Postal Service faces significant, long-term financial pressures and budget shortfalls caused by reduced mail volume, revenues, and the burden of prefunding retiree health benefits.  It is important to note that the USPS is subject to federal government oversight, but the USPS supports itself through the sales of postal services and does not receive taxpayer dollars.

The Postal Reform Act would create the Postal Service Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority to restructure the USPS and reduce its costs.  It would also create the Commission on Postal Reorganization to review the USPS network and infrastructure and recommend closures and consolidations, which would go into effect unless rejected by Congress.  The goal of this legislation is to provide structural and financial reforms to the USPS to cut costs.

The Act would be the most fundamental reform of the USPS since it was created from the former Post Office Department in 1971.  As introduced, I do have several concerns .  For example, one of the provisions authorizes an additional $10 billion in borrowing authority from the U.S. Treasury.  Another concern is the Act does not address some core issues necessary to return the Postal Service to financial stability, including the need to decrease or suspend the current mandates requiring retiree health benefit pre-payments, which costs the Postal Service $5.5 billion annually until 2016.

While I recognize the need to preserve services that many Americans consider essential, such as six-day delivery and universal postal coverage, we must make sure the USPS makes the changes necessary to survive.  I am committed to working with my colleagues in Congress to ensure that the Postal Service fulfills its obligation as well as to help improve the Postal Service’s efficiency.

Thank you again for contacting me on this important issue. I invite you to visit my website at www.HerreraBeutler.house.gov for additional information or to sign up to be kept up to date on these issues. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance.
Sincerely,
Jaime Herrera Beutler
Member of Congress

CONGRESSIONAL GRIDLOCK – WHY IS CONGRESS STALLED?

WHERE WE CAME FROM - -WHERE ARE WE GOING?

Taking the wide view of what the current attitudes towards Congress and the US Government as a whole seems to be one of frustration and anger.  All the angry voices are directed at a government that appears to be completely dysfunctional and hopelessly locked in a stalemate, one side pitted against another, each playing a political game of brinkmanship and tricks.  Each side has dug in their heels and refuses to budge from their agendas, using whatever political ploy they can to further their causes.  Each side has people who are well versed in these unseemly and sometimes down right dishonest tactics and are perfectly willing and able to do whatever they think they need to do to win.  So as we citizens sit back and watch this soap opera, it is the nation and the citizens who may suffer the consequences of the outcome of this political battle.

Depending on who you listen to, each side is blaming the other for the apparent paralytic conduct of Congress.  The Left blames the Right and visa-versa.  Depending on ones political bent, you identify with one side or the other.  The Left is seemingly working towards a re-write of the Constitution AND the Bill of Rights.  These people want to level the playing field so everyone is equal and everyone is provided everything they need by the government, paid for by Millionaires.  Everyone has a right to a job, a house, healthcare, or whatever else they can think of, all provided by the government.  In this utopian world, everything is all rosy and love fills the air.  This is what these people really believe and it is their paradigm, you cannot shake them from it.  It is their religion, it is their mantra, and it is their life’s work.  Believe me, I have had many a conversation with these types and they really believe it in their hearts.  It is their reality.

The people on the other side see the situation through different spectacles.  What they see is a government locked in a titanic battle for the soul of this nation.  The Left is working diligently to fundamentally change the USA.  Moving it away from the foundational precepts that our Founding Fathers put in place when they used their collective wisdom to author our foundational documents.  These extraordinarily wise men knew what oppression was and took great pains to install a government that does something their previous rulers and governments did not.  And that was to acknowledge mans rights, and that they are God given, not given by man because man and government cannot and should not limit mans rights.  These concepts are articulately written in the Bill of Rights with no ambiguities.  It is plainly written and is meant to be literally interpreted.  These people also see a Congress that IS working in the exact manner it was envisioned.  Our Founding Fathers planned a government that was and is built on checks and balances.  It is meant to act the very way it is now.  When one side or the other, gets out of hand and starts going things that are out of bounds, the other side should always have the power to stall any acts that run contrary to the Constitution and The Bill of Rights.   That is exactly what is happening today.  Our congress is broken and is in need of repair, that much is evident, but what do we do to get it back in line?  That is a complicated question and there is much debate on that issue.  I have 1 suggestion; Only elect people who are constitutionalist and work to protect our republic and our rights, not just take a hollow oath and go about their agenda.  As a citizen, I am sick and tired of having to protect my rights when I send people to Washington DC to do that for me.  That’s their job!

AFRICAN-AMERICANS BRAIN-WASHED INTO NOT CONSIDERING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY OR CONSERVATISM

This is what Herman Cain says and I agree with him.  The DNC has brainwashed the African-Americans into thinking AND believing that they (DNC) is the only political party that cares about them. (It doesn’t matter that it was a Republican, Abraham Lincoln, who freed the slaves, which in turn caused the Civil War)  The DNC has them believing that the GOP is this big huge evil bunch of people who are racist and want to keep them slaves, when in fact it is the Democrats who have never freed the Blacks from the Plantation.  This fact is so glaring and wrong-headed, that the Democrats need to be totally rebuffed by the African-Americans.   The GOP will give them a hand up, and only a hand out, if they really can’t improve their lives.  What is better, give a man a fish, and he lives one day, or teach a man to fish, and he can feed himself for a lifetime?

SENATOR PATTY MURRAY ASKED FOR MY OPINION ON HOW TO REDUCE THE FEDERAL DEFICIT, HERE IT IS…

SHE DOES NOT DESERVE RE-ELECTION...

“You want to know how to cut costs but you insist on playing with the military retiree benefits that we worked for for over 20 years. Rather than cut the size of agencies that are bloated out of control, you use the active duty military and retirees as pawns in your political game of chess.  We military patriots find your actions to be repugnant and dishonest.  There are 10s of thousands of positions that need to be cut in the Federal Government.  The private sector is “downsizing” due to the over taxation and over regulation by the Feds and the agencies who’s ranks need to be thinned.  If everyone should have some “skin in the game”, as the President says, it rings true for the Federal government too.  Unless you make positive, meaningful cuts in the federal bureaucracy first, I will not support you in your future election cycle.”

GOP CONTROLLED HOUSE BOWS TO HIGH POWERED LOBBYISTS AND BAILS OUT HIGH POWERED LAW FIRM

CLICK THE PIC FOR THE STORY

Wait a minute,…..I thought the GOP was against this type of Crony Capitalism? How in the hell did they think that this would look good to their constituency?  It sure doesn’t look good to me that’s for sure.  We sent them to DC to stop this crap, not join in the party!  I urge all to contact you’re Reps in DC and give them a piece of your mind, I am…..  It is this type of “dealing” that got us into this mess to begin with and we voters cannot let this get swept under the rug.

Look, I know this is a re-post of a story, as most of my posts are.  I do it to emphasize the story and to expound on its importance.   This is a classic example of what is wrong with the current state of politics in DC…..

 

MY LETTER TO JAIME HERRERA BEUTLER;

I have just seen information regarding a bailout of a high powered law firm representing a major drug company.  This law firm is being sued by the drug company for malpractice.  It is my understanding that the House passed a Bill in favor of this.  I need, as does the rest of your Constituency, how you voted on this issue and why you voted in that manner. We here in SW Washington sent you to DC to stop this Cronyism, not join in.  I sincerely hope you opposed this Bill.  If not, your reelection may be in jeopardy.
