Pure Evil: Speaker Bohner and GOP Leadership Tricked 216 House Republicans Into Voting FOR Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Barack_Obama_and_John_Boehner_enjoying_Saint_Patricks_Day_2014

By Gary P Jackson

There are some truly evil machinations afloat in the Republican controlled House of Representatives.

We’ve long known that Speaker of the House John Boehner and his cronies want to give amnesty to illegal aliens. ALL illegal aliens. We knew that any tough talk coming out of the mouths of these treasonous “progressive” Republican bastards was just theater to fool those who don’t really pay attention. After one of the greatest Republican victories in modern times, Boehner almost immediately signaled he would not fight Obama in any way. Typically, Boehner and his cohorts would rather fight Conservatives, who wish to save America, rather than Obama and his democrats, who are hell-bent on destroying it!

Matthew Boyle at Big Government has a lengthy and exhaustive interview with Congressman Louie Gohmert [R-TX], a straight shooter, if there ever was one. Congressman Gohmert goes to great lengths to describe how Boehner’s henchmen took a piece of legislation [H.R. 5759] written by Congressman Ted Yoho [R-FL] co-sponsored by Gohmert, and completely changed the wording and intent of the bill in Executive Committee. Boenher actually took a very short and concise piece of legislation that reminded President Obama what he was doing was illegal, and actually changed the wording in a manner that would STRENGTHEN Obama’s position on amnesty, and other unconstitutional power grabs by the president.

In a lengthy interview on Friday afternoon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) exposed how House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise strengthened President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber would envy—and they did it all in the name of pushing a bill that they told Republicans would block Obama’s executive amnesty.

What’s more is that a series of interviews and recent developments indicate that Boehner’s gambit here is placing several of his top lieutenants—including at least two committee chairmen—at political risk of serious primary challenges just a few months after newly elected Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) beat now former House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) in a Republican primary.

Gohmert said most members had no idea what they were actually voting for when 219 members—216 of which were Republicans—approved a measure, H.R. 5759, first put forward by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), but subsequently dramatically altered by leadership officials in the Rules Committee process.

I was a cosponsor of the original Yoho bill. I thought it was a very decent bill, it was very short—it was only about a page and a half—and it basically said that anything the president did in violation of current law including what he’s done with ordering work permits for people who are illegally here, it’s illegal,” Gohmert said.

Reading how this was done reminds us that liberals [no matter what political party they call home] are pure evil and will do anything and everything to further their agenda. Nothing is out of bounds to these rat-bastards, including lying to members of their own party! The Yoho bill is something Boehner intends to use as the centerpiece of his entire Continuing Resolution that will fund Obama’s agenda, including amnesty, through March of 2015.

You simply MUST read the entire Breitbart report, in context. It’s too in-depth and comprehensive to even attempt to post a few bits and pieces. Click here to read it all.

I can’t express strongly enough how evil Boehner and his co-conspirators are. The American people spoke LOUDLY in November. They gave Republicans control of the Senate, and an even larger control of the House, with the specific mission of stopping Obama dead in his tracks. Stopping amnesty and killing ObamaCare, once and for all, were the two big issues that saw the GOP take historic wins. The message couldn’t have been clearer!

As Americans we must stand up and demand that this injustice, this act of treason against the United States and her people, be dealt with. Boehner and his cohorts need to be removed from their positions of power. They are evil and corrupt. Personally, I’d love to see if criminal charges can’t be filed and indictments handed down, but I understand the reluctance to “weaponize” politics, unless the target is a Conservative, of course. At he very least, the entire House Republican leadership needs to be thrown out of power.

We don’t have much time either. Congress leaves for Christmas vacation at the end of the workweek. Boehner wants his treasonous betrayal of the American people to stand.

Again, take time to read the entire mind-blowing Breitbart exposé, and then call your Congressman and raise holy hell! Demand this bill be rescinded and a complete change of leadership, from the top down, when the new Congress is sworn in.

Governor Sarah Palin Headed to Iowa

Sarah+Palin+Attends+Tea+Party+Restoring+America+E1bZ3DvITS9l

By Gary P Jackson

From the Des Moines Register:

Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin will take part in the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines on Jan. 24.

The inaugural event is being held by Citizens United and Congressman Steve King. The summit will serve as a place to discuss conservative ideas, as people get ready for the upcoming Iowa Caucuses next year.

Other featured guests include Ben Carson, Newt Gingrich, Senator Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Senator Rick Santorum and others. It will be held at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines.

Here’s a flashback: Governor Palin’s powerful Restoring America speech in Indianola, Iowa on September 3, 2011 to get everyone through a cold winter’s day:

This is the speech where, among other things, Governor Palin takes on crony capitalism, in BOTH political parties.

Let the speculation for 2016 begin.

Report: Obama’s Executive Amnesty Will Cost American Taxpayers at Least Two TRILLION Dollars

illegal_beatch

File this under: Criminal Illegal Aliens Stealing America’s Future.

By Gary P Jackson

President Barack Obama has declared he will “shut the government down” if the Republicans refuse to fund his latest unconstitutional power grab, the granting of amnesty, and certain rights, to criminal invaders of our nation.

This is, in fact, a brilliant strategy by the despot in the Oval Office. Despite historic nationwide victories in last month’s election. Despite the American people screaming loudly “STOP OBAMA BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY,” the Republican “leadership” is still afraid of it’s own shadow! Even though it was Obama, and Harry Reid who shut down the government earlier, the Republican morons “in charge” allowed the extremist democrats, and their media partners, to blame the Republicans. Worse, instead of fighting back at the democrats, these worthless GOP crapweasels spent all of their time attacking Senator Ted Cruz and the Tea Party, thus HELPING the democrats blame Republicans!

The nationwide Republican victories in November were the greatest since 1932, when you count the Senate. Only the 2010 elections saw a bigger nationwide shake-up, with Republicans replacing democrats all over the country. If the American people are sore at Republicans for “shutting down the government,” they sure have one hell of a way of showing it!

How is the Republican “leadership” reacting to one of the largest mandates ever given a political party, a mandate to stop Obama and his democrats, at any cost? Why they’ve surrendered, of course! All of the talk from McConnell and Boehner is about making sure the government isn’t shuttered, and now we hear McConnell and his deputies refuse to even strategize with those in the Senate who DO want to stop Obama.

Now one must know by now, that the “progressives” who make up the “leadership” of the GOP WANT amnesty, not just for a few million criminal invaders, but for all of them. Tens of millions of them. Just as the democrats are owned by union thugs, the GOP “leaders” are bought and paid for by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and others who want cheap labor. Never mind illegals are one of the main reasons wages are stagnant in America. Their being here and willing to work for much less money than an American, or LEGAL immigrant, depresses wages across the board. Corrupt politicians really don’t care. Caring doesn’t pay nearly as well as servicing their cronies, who keep them in office.

So while you’ll see Boehner, McConnell, and their boys, talking tough, they have no intention of actually doing anything about Obama’s illegal, and immoral, power-grab, or stopping the flow of criminal invaders from around the world.

Which brings us to a cold, hard reality. Between our debt, which is now over $18 TRILLION [and will reach $22 TRILLION by January 2017] and liabilities that equal roughly $100 TRILLION, we are on the hook for money money than even exists. In other words, there isn’t enough money in the entire world to cover our debt and liabilities! Let that sink in a minute, before continuing.

So …. what’s another $2 TRILLION in the grand scheme of things?

Caroline May at Big Government reports on the findings of Senior Research Fellow Robert Rector, of the Heritage Foundation:

The net cost — which is total benefits minus total benefits paid in — of the amnesty recipients I estimate will be around $2 trillion over the course of their lifetime,” Rector explained in an interview with Breitbart News Monday. He added that the calculation is based on the assumption that 4 million undocumented immigrants will participate and they will live, on average, 50 years.

According to Rector — who has published extensively on welfare, poverty, and immigration — the cost has two components: The first is the potential to access Social Security and Medicare, given amnestied undocumented immigrants’ ability to obtain work permits and Social Security Numbers.

What [Obama] is doing is he is putting these 4 million people — who on average have a 10th grade education — into the Social Security and Medicare programs,” Rector said. He used much of the same methodology he incorporated in his May 2013 study on the cost of amnesty to reach his conclusions.

With the expected earnings for an individual with that level of education, he explained that the amnestied immigrants will take vastly more out than they will contribute to those programs.

Given their expected earnings, from someone that has a 10th grade education, they will draw about three dollars worth of benefits out of those programs over their lifetimes for every dollar they put into them. But the overall cost in outlays will be around a trillion dollars for those programs alone,” Rector explained.

The second component of Rector’s analysis looked at means-tested welfare programs.

While undocumented immigrants are not eligible for welfare dollars, Rector says he expects that within about a dozen years either through legislation or executive action the amnestied immigrants will be able to access welfare programs.

As a stop-gap — should there be no legislation or executive action granting the amnestied illegal immigrants welfare access — Rector noted that once the citizen children of amnestied immigrants hit age 21 they could be able to petition to have their parents obtain green cards without leaving the country.

After 5 years with a green card status they are eligible for all the welfare programs,” he added.

Once the amnestied undocumented immigrants are able to access welfare, he argued, that will be another trillion dollars in means-tested welfare over the course of their lifetime — on top of the trillion dollars in Social Security and Medicare.

“Even if they are waiting 10 or 12 years to get access to these programs, that is still a trillion dollar cost once they begin to get into them,” Rector said.

The Heritage expert explained that on average in the U.S., households headed by an individual without a high school diploma take in about $50,000 in federal, state, and local government benefits.

The bottom line to understand this is you are taking 4 million people with a 10th grade education and giving them access to the largest entitlement and welfare system in the globe,” he said. Rector added that his findings are expected to be published at the Heritage Foundation in the coming days.

You should read the 2013 report by Rector and Jason Richwine. It goes into great detail of how the dollar figures are reached.

For the deniers in the bunch, one should note Rector has been very consistent in his findings. In June of 2007, when President Bush, and Congress were chomping at the bit to give amnesty to these criminal invaders, before the American people rose up and said “HELL NO,” Rector published a similar study that reckoned amnesty for illegals would cost a minimum of $2.6 TRILLION. You’ll note the numbers are a little different, but so are the demographics of the illegals he used to compute his findings. The 2007 report is even more detailed, and mind-blowing.

Of course, we already know the number of criminal invaders who will be granted amnesty under Obama’s unconstitutional action will be greater than we are now being told. We also know that, by either executive fiat, or court orders, from resulting lawsuits that are sure to come, and soon, all of these illegals will be given full access to all welfare and other benefits American taxpayers toil and sweat for, to provide for other AMERICANS.

For those of you who have read, and understand Cloward-Piven, none of this should come as a surprise. Obama and his democrats mean to destroy America from within. Sadly, the Republicans are willing co-conspirators in all of this.

I suggest readers melt the phone-lines on Capitol Hill. Raise hell, my friends, raise hell!

You can find contact numbers for your Senators and Members of Congress by clicking on Senate.Gov and House.Gov. If you have trouble reaching your members of Congress, the mains switchboard number at the Capitol Building is (202) 224-3121 or toll free 1-800-839-5276.

We’ve called for Obama’s impeachment and removal from office. If you agree, tell you representatives in Congress, while you are bending their ears, to get it done!

Impeach, Convict, and Remove President Obama Today or Lose the Republic Forever

obama_constitution_negative_liberties

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.
~ Benjamin Franklin

By Gary P Jackson

A Republic, IF You Can Keep It

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation, Benjamin Franklin was stopped by a Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia. The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention were held in strict secrecy. As such, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended, in order to learn what had been created behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. Mrs Powell reportedly asked Franklin: “ Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” Without a moment’s hesitation, Franklin answered: “A republic, if you can keep it.” And here in starts the tale of the slow and steady decline of Liberty and Freedom in the United States. The slow and steady decline federalism, and the First Principles used to create these United States.

The original intent of the Constitution was to create a very weak federal government. A federal government that would be almost totally inconsequential to the average citizen in their daily lives. A federal government that was to live by the notion that he [or she] who governs least, governs best.

The Ninth and Tenth Amendments, the last two Amendments that make up the Bill of Rights, a covenant between government, and We, the People …. that guarantees absolute …. certain inalienable, God given rights from government infringement, state:

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

These two guarantees make it quite clear that We, the People are sovereign, as are the several states. Under federalism, the states are to be the main governing bodies that interact with the people. Obviously, under local governance, the needs, as well as the will of the People, are better served. Even in 1787, our Republic was too large and her people so varied, for a top down, “one size fits all,” central command and control government to work. With over 300 million American citizens today, spread out over millions of square miles, and with so many varied needs, that notion is even more valid today, than it was in Ben Franklin’s time!

An ever growing, overreaching federal government is nothing new. Almost from the start Presidents and Congress have pushed the boundaries, often crossing them. And, as we all know, Freedom lost, is rarely ever regained, without a revolution, of some sort or another.

The Civil War and it’s aftermath saw a major increase in the size and scope of the federal government, but it wasn’t until the so-called “progressive” era that started with President Theodore Roosevelt and hit the afterburners under Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt that the notion of an all powerful, central command and control government, not only grabbed the United States by the throat, and started strangling the life out of her, but also became accepted as the “new normal” for a small, but rapidly growing group of Americans.

By 1964, under Socialist Lyndon Baines Johnson and his “Great Society,” the United States was facing yet another constitutional crisis. [One could argue FDR’s entire four terms as President was nothing but one constitutional crisis after another!] So strong was the concern that Ronald Reagan stated in his iconic 1964 speech:

This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.

Unfortunately, the American people chose to allow this vicious cycle to continue, for the problem to fester. Now it has become a full-grown cancer on society. With so much overreach, with so many Cabinet level agencies in the Executive Branch, all run by, and staffed by, unelected, unaccountable little drones, it’s virtually impossible to live your live without being touched, in a very significant way, by the thoughts, deeds, and whims of the federal government. We, in fact, HAVE abandoned the American Revolution, and decided that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol CAN plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves. Or at least SOME of us have!

Impeach, Convict, and Remove President Obama Today or Lose the Republic Forever

In the 238 years since our nation’s founding, we have never had a more vile, corrupt, lawless, Anti-American scoundrel at the helm. President Obama is someone who has called our beloved Constitution, the most enduring political document in history, a “charter of negative liberties.” In a 2001 radio interview, where he discusses this, Obama is angered because the Constitution is designed to restrain GOVERNMENT, not the people.

In other words, for Obama, the problem is the Constitution is designed to STOP the federal government from doing things TO the people, and doesn’t address doing anything FOR the people, such as Obama’s socialist dream of wealth distribution and “social justice,” what he might call the “ Rainbows and Unicorns” amendment, if such nonsense was actually written into the Constitution. BTW, FDR worked hard to created a “Second Bill of Rights,” but was, thankfully thwarted. [OK, FDR didn’t work as much as he copied those “rights” directly from the constitution of the Soviet Union]

Since being elected President, Obama has shown his hatred for America and our Constitution, on a regular, and consistent basis, but never more so than in the past two years. He has become so lawless [and unfazed by threats and sanctions] that we now have a constitutional crisis, the likes of which we have never seen, and a nation at her tipping point.

Any time one brings up the obvious, that Obama must be impeached, convicted, removed from office, and imprisoned; pundits, consultants, and weak-kneed Republicans come out of the woodwork telling you why that’s a “bad idea.” Some of my favorites are, in no particular order: “You CAN’T impeach the first black president.” “Remember Bill Clinton’s impeachment, the Republicans took a BIG hit, politically.” “Obama only has a short time in office, why waste the time?” and “Oh my GOD, Joe Biden would be President JOE FREAKIN BIDEN!!!!!”

OK …..

Joe Biden

Yes, Joe Biden is a national punch line. In so much as complete morons are quite rare, Joe Biden is a glittering jewel! That said, I have no doubt in my mind that Biden would NOT spend his time in office looking to purposely destroy the United States, as Barack Obama is engaged in daily. The fact is, Biden has wanted to be President for a LONG time, if there were actual LEADERS in the Republican Party, I suspect a deal could be made, wherein Biden SUPPORTED the impeachment, conviction, and removal of Obama, in exchange for not being held responsible himself, and also impeached and removed from office. That deal would also include, in writing, future President Biden’s guarantee that he wouldn’t pardon Obama before leaving office. As a lifelong, successful salesman, I would pitch that deal, if I were in a position to do so. The worst that could happen is Biden simply saying no! There are also a few democrats in the Senate, like Joe Manchin of West Virginia, that could be convinced to go along, if for no other reason than to save their careers come 2016, which could be another bloodbath for democrats both nationally, and across the fruited plain.

This is racist!

Look, if you disagree with Obama, even in the slightest, you are automatically “racist,” according to the democrats and their media partners at MSNBC, and the networks. After six years, the word now has no meaning whatsoever. The Republicans need to stop seeking the approval of those that hate them, and America! [yes, they are one in the same] It ain’t gonna happen, EVER. Even when Republicans capitulate, completely lay down for the democrats, they are still viciously attacked, and lied about. Republicans consistently fail to understand we are at war for the soul of our nation. Our enemies, and the enemies of America, are armed with nuclear weapons, while Republicans have water pistols! [and not very good ones, either]

The bottom line: You can’t defeat evil with timidity. Go hard, or go home!

This isn’t the Clinton impeachment, not even close

William Jefferson Blythe Clinton was impeached for, among other things, perjury and suborning perjury. Both are felonies, and both can carry up to six years in prison …. each. Of course, the corrupt, lying-ass media managed to make it all about Bill chasing a chubby, misguided, immature girl around the Resolute Desk. The Republicans didn’t help, by choosing Ken Starr, who focused on the lurid, and compromising acts, instead of the simple case of Clinton lying under oath, and talking Monica into lying under oath for him. Yes, having sex in the Oval Office, with someone he barely knew, was dangerous and a real threat to national security. Had Monica been a foreign agent, instead of a mixed up kid with stars in her eyes for a serial rapist, our most important and vital secrets would have been at risk. There is no doubt in any reasonable person’s mind, that HAD Monica been a foreign agent, and blackmailed Bill, he would have done ANYTHING to keep the American people from finding out, including handing over the keys to our most vital secrets. The Clinton impeachment was serious, and seriously bungled.

One thing it DIDN’T do though, is harm the Republican Party in any way. It’s time for Republicans to stop falling for these idiotic myths, concocted by the very people who want them destroyed.

President Obama has committed real crimes. SERIOUS crimes. The same crimes, in fact, that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation from office, just ahead of impeachment, sure conviction, removal from office, and possible imprisonment. Obama has committed international crimes that not only directly led to the murders of two United States Border Agents: Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata, but hundreds of innocent Mexican citizens as well. Operation Fast and Furious was not only illegal, it was a cynical attempt by Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to subvert the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, the very Constitution they both swore and oath to God to uphold and defend. Most sane people would consider this an act of treason.

There are numerous cases that can be listed in the Articles of Impeachment. The document could read like War and Peace, at least in length.

Obama can do a lot of damage, completely destroying these United States, FOREVER, in the next 25 months

The fact is, Obama doesn’t have “just a short time left” in office. There are over TWO YEARS left in this tyrant’s reign of terror, unless he’s stopped! The amount of damage Obama can do in the next two years is incalculable. If Obama isn’t sent the message, that only impeachment can send, there is literally NOTHING or NO ONE who can stop him from doing ANYTHING he wants to do, by executive fiat. He will have effectively become a fascist dictator [for real] and Congress [a co-equal branch of government] will be rendered null and void.

Need an example? Obama is part of the “climate change” scam. He already has his EPA destroying entire industries, like coal, and destroying hundreds of thousands of jobs [and innocent lives] in the process. Obama’s War on Coal™ has contributed greatly to the record poverty and record unemployment the American people face today. He’s already been overseas proposing ludicrous regulations that no one, but America, will adhere to.

What’s to stop Obama from waking up in January and deciding he will just put a carbon tax in place, by Executive Order?

As we noted back in May of 2010, Obama, along with Al Gore, Maurice Strong, George Soros, domestic terrorist Bill Ayer’s brother, and others, had invested heavily in the Chicago Climate Exchange, what would have been essentially the Wall Street of carbon credit trading. This scam looked to bring in as much as $10 TRILLION [gross] annually, making Obama and company wealthy beyond anyone’s wildest dreams, off of a HOAX.

Again, what would stop him? Obama has plenty of billionaire [and would-be billionaire] cronies in the “alternative energy business.” We’ve already watched companies like Solyndra not only steal billions of dollars from the American people, without producing a viable product, but IN the case of Solyndra, leave a massive toxic waste dump at it’s factory, after filing bankruptcy, something that will cost millions, if not billions more to clean up! Paid for, of course, by you and me, the American taxpayers. This isn’t just corrupt, it’s pure evil!

But you know what? Forget Obama for a minute. In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t even about Obama. In reality, this is about defending the Constitution, and the Rule of Law. This is about saying that there is INDEED a line we won’t allow to be crossed. It is a reminder that we elect a President, not a king or an emperor. It’s also about serving warning to future presidents who might try the same illegal, unconstitutional gambits Obama has been engaged in, for years. Impeaching Obama is far bigger than Obama. It boils down to whether we can actually KEEP the Republic, or stand by, as it ends, right before our very eyes.

obama constitution executive orders_thumb[2]

With Obama, Past is prologue

Though this may not be grounds for impeachment, it certainly points to a pattern that will not stop until Obama is forcibly removed from office. Obama has written Executive Orders, illegally declared the Senate in recess [when it wasn’t …. not that he has the power to declare anything Senate related] and so on. The United States Supreme Court has UNANIMOUSLY declared Obama’s actions unconstitutional on 12 occasions. Yup, even the far left extremists Obama himself placed on The Court have declared his actions unconstitutional a dozen times!

A normal person would get the hint, at some point.

If having the Supreme Court clip his wings didn’t give Obama some pause for reflection, you’d have thought the historic ass-whipping the democrat party took nationwide on November 4th would have! Instead it’s: “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!”

I think Obama has proven, without a doubt, that neither the Constitution, nor the rule of law, or even the will of the American people, mean a thing to him. Obama is on a mission and has no intention of stopping. So, he must BE stopped.

Thankfully, our Founding Fathers left us a simple, CONSTITUTIONAL remedy for tyrants and wanna-be dictators like Obama. Currently Republicans have retained counsel and are suing Obama over his illegal deferments of sections of the ObamaCare legislation. Obama illegally changed the law to suit political purposes, namely trying to hold off the painful and devastatingly expensive portions of the law, until after the 2014 elections. More than a few constitutional scholars doubt Congress even has what the courts call standing, to even bring the suit. Courts are not inclined to get involved in a pissing contest between the Legislative and Executive branches of government, as all three are co-equal, under our Supreme Law of the Land.

Again, our Constitution provides the answer: Impeachment.

It should be noted that President George W Bush tried two very stupid things while in office: Grant massive amnesty to illegal aliens, and put an unqualified Harriett Myers on the Supreme Court. Both times the American people raised Holy Hell, melting the phone lines to the White House and their congresscritters. Bush wisely gave up, on both ideas. Contrast this with Obama. When ObamaCare was still being shoved down our throats, the American people rose up, en masse, to protest. ObamaCare was NEVER popular among the people, and as the years have passed, it has become even less so. Obama’s response? The legislation was “deemed passed” in the middle of the night, via illegal procedures, without a single bi-partisan vote for it. That has never happened in American history. The Republicans’ response? Boehner shouted, then cried, then sat down and shut up! With Obama threatening this amnesty for illegals, the American people sent a message, loud and clear. Obama’s response? A big middle finger to the entire nation!

We’ve discussed Speaker of the House John Boeher’s idiotic, and lame-ass lawsuit before. In our article, we also lay out the various crimes Obama has committed, including High Treason. Many, including myself, consider Obama’s recent granting of executive amnesty, which amounts to a refusal to enforce the law of the land, for an entire class of people [laws he swore an oath to God to uphold] yet another case of High Treason, and grounds for the most severe of punishments allowed by law.

The bottom line is this:

If Obama isn’t stopped, and stopped NOW, the United States, as we know it, will cease to exist

The only way to stop Obama is impeachment, conviction, and removal from office. It will be an all out war, but so was the Revolution that gave birth to the Republic we love so much. More simply put, America can’t survive under Barack Obama. She will indeed fall, if this tyrant is allowed to remain in office.

They that can give up essential Liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor Liberty

Election Eve Dump: Justice Department Turns Over 64,280 pages of Claimed ‘Executive Privilege’ Operation Fast & Furious Documents

By Gary P Jackson

Breaking press release rom the House Oversight Committee:

Election Eve Dump: Justice Department Turns Over 64,280 pages of Claimed ‘Executive Privilege’ Operation Fast and Furious Documents

November 4, 2014

Last night, in response to an Order from a Federal judge, the Department of Justice turned over 64,280 pages of documents that were withheld from Congress after President Obama asserted Executive Privilege on the eve of a contempt citation for Attorney General Eric Holder in June 2012. The sheer volume of last night’s document production—which consists entirely of documents that the Justice Department itself acknowledges are not covered by Executive Privilege—shows that the President and the Attorney General attempted to extend the scope of the Executive Privilege well beyond its historical boundaries to avoid disclosing documents that embarrass or otherwise implicate senior Obama Administration officials.

In effect, last night’s production is an admission that the Justice Department never had legitimate grounds to withhold these documents in the first place. Approximately two-thirds of the universe of documents that the Justice Department withheld from Congress has now been shown to be well outside the scope of Executive Privilege.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., today made the following statement on the Department of Justice’s document production related to the agency’s cover-up of Operation Fast and Furious:

When Eric Holder wants to know why he was the first Attorney General held in criminal contempt of Congress, he can read the judge’s order that compelled the production of 64,280 pages that he and President Obama illegitimately and illegally withheld from Congress. Since these pages still do not represent the entire universe of the documents the House of Representatives is seeking related to the Justice Department’s cover-up of the botched gun-walking scandal that contributed to the death of a Border Patrol agent, our court case will continue. I am deeply concerned that some redactions to these documents may still be inappropriate and contrary to the judge’s order in the case. This production is nonetheless a victory for the legislative branch, a victory for transparency, and a victory for efforts to check Executive Branch power.

Who is Mark Begich?

Mark-Begich

By C.A. Bamford

In 2008, Alaska’s junior senator, Mark Begich won his seat by the slimmest of margins, barely edging out incumbent Senator Ted Stevens. “Uncle Ted”, as Alaskans were fond of calling him, and was the longest serving Republican member of the Senate of all time. What tipped the scales for this unlikely win?

Was it the huge infusion of DNC cash? Wifely support from Begich’s wife, Deborah Bonito (former Chair of Alaska’s Democrat Party)? Was the brotherly support of unions, including former APDEA union leader, Rob Heun (who later received a federal commission as a US Marshall) a big help? Or could it have simply been the “Shadow Bosses” factor?

One thing is certain. It was a lucky break for Mr. Begich, when 60 days before the election, Senator Stevens was hit with ethics and corruption charges. Begich supporters, the DNC, and highly organized Outside interests had been relentless and vociferous in condemning Stevens. Then just 8 days before the election, Senator Stevens was convicted of felony violations. In spite of this, Stevens’ popularity and reputation for standing up for the rights of Alaska almost won him re-election. But Mark Begich had managed to pull in enough votes for a win.

After the election, however, the many disturbing discrepancies in the prosecution’s case led to a review and a request by the Attorney General to Judge Emmett Sullivan to dismiss the indictment. The judge complied and appointed a special prosecutor to conduct a criminal investigation of the federal prosecutors working on the Stevens case. It had been alleged that Senator Stevens had tried to conceal information on renovation of his modest Girdwood home on his senate financial disclosure form. The other counts concerned gifts, including a puppy from a charity event, a massage chair and a statue of a giant salmon. A key witness, David Anderson, came forward and acknowledged that he had provided false testimony. He admitted that the prosecution had allowed billing records from him to be entered into evidence even though they knew the records were not accurate. Bill Allen was convicted of bribery and conspiracy and was sentenced to 3 years in prison. A number of others were found guilty of lying and withholding information that would have cleared Senator Stevens.

The wrongful conviction of Senator Ted Stevens, just days before the election, was thrown out. But the damage was done. Alaska’s most experienced and ardent champion, a man who had served Alaska long before it had even achieved statehood, was gone from the senate. This powerful voice for Alaskans had been replaced by a man with little experience and few achievements.

Not Guilty

We know Senator Mark Begich’s record in the senate. Other than being a deciding vote for Obamacare, he has accomplished little, getting just one bill passed… to re-name a courthouse in Anchorage. “…Begich is a junior figure, moving through the chamber’s power structure at the speed of a mastodon tapped in a glacier.” ~The Washington Post 7/13/14

A loyal party follower and self-described moderate Democrat, Begich gave Obama 105 of his 107 Senate votes. He voted to increase the debt limit 7 times, voted for the failed $831 billion stimulus plan, voted for a national energy tax known as Cap and Trade, and although he claims to be against EPA overregulation, Senator Begich voted against reining in the EPA’s power.

Although he claims credit for many accomplishments, it turns out that Senator Begich has stretched the truth a bit on those claims. He has taken credit for getting Veterans facilities built, but it was Senator Ted Stevens and others who got the ball rolling on them. He has claimed credit for bills sponsored by Alaska Senator Murkowski, on which he was merely a signer. He promised he’d fight Obama and open ANWR for drilling. ANWR is still closed. He has actually been chastised by Alaska Congressman Don Young, who said, “I don’t appreciate the ads being run on his (Begich’s) behalf. The road (into the National Petroleum Reserve)? Nah. Dena’ina Center? Nah. Merrill field? I don’t think so. Don’t take credit for something you didn’t do.

From 1988-98 Mark Begich served on the Anchorage Assembly. During this period, his friend, Anchorage Police Department Employees Association President, Rob Heun convinced the general membership to approve the purchase of an entire building for a union meeting hall. Many felt this was an extravagance since the APDEA union executive board met only once a month. The realtor, Anchorage Assemblyman Mark Begich, reportedly received at least 50K in fees for the $375,000 sale. Additional remodeling costs, reportedly $675,000, went to Begich associate, Joe Murdy (now deceased). Many APDEA members, however, felt that the improvements, including installation of inexpensive indoor-outdoor carpeting, painting walls and adding red outside vinyl window awnings did not justify an expenditure of over two-thirds of a million dollars…especially since the general assembly meeting room was left with a hole to the outside in the south wall where an exhaust fan had been removed. In the end, it cost over a million dollars for this chilly and rarely used building.

In 2003 Begich was elected to a term as Mayor of Anchorage. But that hadn’t ended all that well. During Mark Begich’s tenure as mayor, he increased spending, proposed higher fees and fines, and proposed cuts to city services. Just before leaving office and without consulting the Anchorage Assembly, Begich agreed to generous labor contracts that the city couldn’t afford. In 2008, the Anchorage Assembly voted unanimously to audit those labor contracts that Begich made without their approval. The contracts furthered the financial mess Begich created as mayor while he headed to Washington, DC. In 2009, an independent review found Begich provided inaccurate information and never confirmed Anchorage had the funding for these new contracts.

During the economic downturn in 2008, Begich painted a rosy picture of Anchorage’s economic status, but his finance team worried as some city departments were over spending their calendar-year budgets. The estimated budget shortfall was never disclosed to Assembly members and Begich continued to downplay the problem. As Mayor, Begich increased city spending by more than $130 million, an increase of nearly 50%, and left the city more than $17 million in debt.

Palin to Louisianans: It’s Time for a Political Earthquake on Tuesday!

Rob Maness and Sarah Palin

By Isabel Matos

The link above takes you to a video and the statement she made to Real Clear Politics:

In her statement to RCP, Palin appealed to revel in the act of sticking her thumb in the eye of the Republican “machine” that has coalesced around Cassidy, as she predicted that Louisiana would be “the epicenter of a political earthquake on Tuesday.”

“The GOP machine should never have broken promises,” Palin wrote in the statement. “They got involved in an open Republican primary because they don’t respect the wisdom of the people. They chose their guy, and now as they work against the Maness momentum they’re scurrying around with desperate lies in an attempt to swallow him up.”

Like a gator in the swamp, Col. Rob Maness may have been seen as sharply lurking, but is now ready to pounce. It is time. This is the election that will be the shocker on Tuesday. 

The media bought into the false premise that this is a typical partisan establishment tiff between go-along-to-get-along politicians, Landrieu and Cassidy, and they’re missing the boat. Like that Louisiana alligator who can dominate the swamp, Maness is ready to be on top of D.C.’s food chain and devour the crony capitalism that runs wild in government. Status quo politicians like Landrieu had their chance to clean it up, but the establishment has partaken of the grub far too long, and voters know this. 

The GOP machine should never have broken promises. They got involved in an open Republican primary because they don’t respect the wisdom of the people. They chose their guy, and now as they work against the Maness momentum they’re scurrying around with desperate lies in an attempt to swallow him up. Polls show the “expert” Washington consultants bet on the wrong horse. Their anointed candidate has a long record of liberal votes, many of those votes were quite recent. A survey I saw reveals Cassidy voted with Obama on 35 key votes, and he’s even voted for Sen. Landrieu, and dissed Ronald Reagan! Look, it’s most telling that the political machine’s deputized one won’t even show up at debates to defend his record. No wonder he’s slithering down in the polls and this race is slipping away from the GOP. It’s because Louisiana voters know they deserve better than Cassidy’s M.O. 

I’ve been to Louisiana and seen the momentum — Col. Maness is the only conservative in the race and the clearest contrast and strongest pick to take on Mary Landrieu. His real life record of service, work ethic, positive policy ideas and commonsense resonates with voters. Here he’s fighting two powerful forces — two consummate politicians and both parties’ establishments — yet he’s the one showing real strength and keeping it positive. He’ll prevail because he’s fought and won tougher real life battles. 

The momentum IS on Col. Maness’ side. The Louisiana primary system is the freest in the country and the GOP oppresses that freedom by working against him with false scare tactics and calling this good man a “spoiler” or “vote splitter,” and their attempts to shoot him down are backfiring. Louisianans are realizing there is little difference in voting for the two politicians in this race, and they’re looking to make their vote count and actually make a difference. They’re seeing they have the choice to send Washington a message, and that’s why I’m confident Louisiana will be the epicenter of a political earthquake on Tuesday with their vote for Rob Maness.

Sarah Palin is Not a Victim. She Shines.

Sarah on Varney and Company

By Isabel Matos

I don’t consider Sarah Palin a VICTIM of attacks. She is the OBJECT of hatred but she is not a victim by any stretch of the imagination. Sarah Palin is a leader. She is a very hands-on politician who is as tough as nails but as compassionate and loyal a friend as anyone I’ve seen in politics. Defending her does not mean (to me) accepting her as a victim. She’s better than that. Self-empowered, powerful and effective. That is not the definition of victim. Her appearance on Stuart Varney and Company following the one on Greta where she called Obama incompetent proves it yet again. (But do those of us who believe her need any proof?) :)

Dear Tapp TV: How about a Little Courtesy or Smile for Your Subscribers?

Tapp Brothers

Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein

By Isabel Matos

Congratulations to Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein for their entrepreneurial achievements over the years and for being pioneers in Subscription Television:

Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein first met 20 years ago while pioneering reality television at NBC and CBS, respectively. They were ahead of the curve then, and they’ve stayed there – helping to usher in the era of online video in the 2000’s, and now turning their sights to media’s next frontier: subscription television.

As the readers and viewers may know, I expressed my interest in promoting the Sarah Palin Channel in Spanish here and here. I did not just do SPC clips, however. I did other news items which took an eternity to create, translate, edit and publish. I stated clearly it was all exploratory in nature. This allowed for a margin of error -not in the translations- but the actual publication themselves. I had a concern from the start about copyright.  No one could guarantee one way or another if what I was doing would be okay. It was 50-50, in fact, so I went ahead and took a chance. Every time I posted a clip, people asked about the Sarah Palin Channel. I know I motivated at least a handful to sign up. But Tapp does not seem to want to generate more excitement. Celebrity is a magic bullet that will turn a profit for them without our help. Why get involved? It’s oh so time-consuming.

Tapp must not value my meager contributions for its promotional success either. After waiting one entire month for a reply (see the email I sent to Joanne at Tapp TV on September 29th at the bottom of this page), I decided to post the following on my timeline for the enthusiasts who supported my effort and idea:

Here’s a disappointing update on the Spanish clips. The video that received 713 views got pulled for copyright violation. I wrote the company Tapp who is not so nice customer service-wise and asked to make one exception since it was in part to help promote Sarah’s message and the channel. They did not even have the courtesy to reply, to which I say pthhh. Is a reply too much to ask for a year subscriber? It is a blessing in disguise because each one of those videos in Spanish were absolutely time consuming. 8 hours per minute is what I started out with since I was new to it and trimmed it down to 4 for the last ones. Not bad. I don’t care about the copyright strike either. I took a chance doing something awesome which I loved doing and hit a bump on the road. No big deal. I still know Spanish and I can still translate it’s just not feasible to come up with the script, the video, the translation and the editing.

Spanish translations can be done on just about anything. The possibilities are limitless. There are politicians and personalities in politics who would appreciate my services for free or occasional pay, but it will not be done for the most needed reasons.. to help Sarah Palin get her message out to voters who happen to be bilingual and who have been ignored by the leaders in the party because their message is stale, flat and wrong.  A warning on your part would have sufficed.  By the way, if you use my idea in the future, does that mean that I should be notified?

I’m not the only one disappointed in Tapp’s bad customer service by the way. I would not have taken the trouble to write the article if I was. It is known by now.

Dear Joanne,
Hello. My name is Isabel. I am a supporter of Governor Sarah Palin. I was inspired shortly after Sarah Palin Channel was launched, to do a voice-over of a clip that was pulled from YouTube today. I agreed to what was explained but just wanted to email you directly first to communicate why the video, titled: Sarah Palin’s Conservative Response to Elizabeth Warren’s Progressive Tenets, was done.
The video showcases the Governor’s debating skills. She lays out our conservative beliefs/tenets in a very attractive way. Bilingual voters who understand English but prefer watching and/or reading in Spanish make up a huge portion of the voting population. Millions are denied good information every day as filter/s of the Spanish-speaking media (written and on television) are just as bad if not worse than our liberal mainstream media. We know the story: they either do not report what is going on in American politics, are disparaging or dismissive of the conservative movement like the Tea Party or its leaders like Sarah Palin, who is still mocked with the tired old jokes. It’s there. Again, many are deprived of good information because of the language barrier and the filters described above.
As for the dubbing-it is all mine. I am asking permission for that particular video to stay up.  It was done in a promotional spirit both for her channel and as part of an outreach to those voters who happen to be legal immigrants who are bilingual but enjoy their news in Spanish. Again, the Spanish-speaking media does not do its job. This was a quality translation that did not cost anyone to have it done (which is fine). I will in the future not use SPC material if there is no other way to work this out -you have my word- but I am making a request for this particular video which has already been done and which took a lot of work to do, to be an exception, just in this case.
None of us get paid to do all that we do. We are tirelessly doing the best we can to get the message out and time is running out. My colleagues considered this would be acceptable (I did ask before going on my own..) as it was helpful in the promotion of the channel.
It would be helpful there was a validation of the translation work done, but I am aware now of the infringement issue. I wish this could be used to spread and promote SPC in a special way. If there is anything we can do to keep that video up I would appreciate it much.
Thank you.
Isabel Matos
