Video: Governor Sarah Palin Reprises Her Commander-in-Chief Role, Honors Veterans at CPAC2015

Governor Sarah Palin at CPAC 2015

By Gary P Jackson

Introduced by Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, Governor Sarah Palin gave a powerful speech in support of our nation’s military. Alaska’s former Commander-in-Chief spoke, not as a politician, but as the proud mother of a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghan wars.

Governor Palin talks about the horrific treatment our veterans suffer at the hands of the federal government, and what must be done to fix things. She talks about the need to put our veterans “first in line” when it comes to health care benefits and other services, and notes illegal aliens receive far better, more preferential treatment.

The Governor also talks about the need for better opportunities for veterans returning to civilian life, and the absurdity of having to go to school to “get a piece of paper” to certify they know how to do a job they were already well trained for in the military. After all, one of the military’s selling points is you can learn skills that translate to jobs in the civilian world! [Which is true]

Almost every sentence is quotable, so instead of boring you …. here’s her full speech, courtesy of of our friends at SarahNet:

Governor Palin, who got many standing ovations, was the one speaker folks wouldn’t let leave the stage without getting a handshake from and the obligatory selfie with!

Like this one from Keira Lyn:

and this one:

Seen.com has a collection of tweets about and user generated images of Governor Palin here.

BTW, since the “legitimate media” seems to focus on what Governor Palin wears as much, or more than what she says, let me just say what a great outfit she had on. Loved the skirt and the shoes! That would be a great outfit to have her official White House photo made in!

Multiple Standing Ovations For Governor Sarah Palin at Houston Energy Summit

Sarah Palin new glasses

Before Sarah Palin was Governor of Alaska [and after she was term limited out as Mayor of Wasilla] she was Chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. One of the most powerful jobs in Alaska, and the oil and gas industry as a whole.

Once elected Governor, Palin was then elected Chairman of the nation’s Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, which comprises all of the oil and gas producing states in America. The National Governors Association, comprised of Governors from all 50 states elected Palin as Chairman of their Natural Resources Commission.

Palin is a recognized expert on oil and gas production and has been involved in exploration and developing best practices and ethics for the industry.

She is quite famous for taking on Big Oil, numerous times. So much so, industry insiders wrote the best seller Sarah Takes On Big Oil which is still available through Amazon.

By Gary P Jackson

Governor Palin headlined the Decision’s Maker’s Breakfast at the North American Prospect Expo in Houston on Thursday. She was greeted by a standing ovation and left to one as well. “It’s always a pleasure to be back in Alaska’s sister state Texas.” Palin told the excited audience.

When asked, she still isn’t ruling out a presidential run in 2016. Many in the media are ridiculing her for not committing, never mind most so-called hopefuls haven’t either. Here’s the thing. Governor Palin still has her TV show on The Sportsman Channel and new episodes, already filmed, are still airing. Once she declares, The Sportsman Channel will be forced to discontinue airing episodes. There are only a handful of episodes left that haven’t aired. I have no idea whether Palin will, or will not run. I do know there is absolutely no hurry for her to declare, especially when basically no one else has, yet. We all know the rules seem to be different for Governor Palin, but come on!

We have some excepts from Governor Palin’s speech, sourced from several reports. Her speech included a moderated question and answer session. [Which will be reflected by highlighting questions asked]

Energy is my baby. I absolutely love it. It’s the theme that I miss most about my governing responsibilities. Being able to help spur investment and exploration and development and, you know, responsibly extracting that most valuable resource we have in Alaska and so many other places. And being able to feed and fuel our great nation with what God has created for man’s responsible use.”

My husband Todd started off with BP on the North Slope of Alaska. We raised our kids with that North Slope lifestyle. Thank you so much for paying my bills for many years.

About Obama asking Congress to designate parts of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska as a wilderness area, although he will look into opening the Atlantic coast to oil and gas exploration:That’s a bogus exchange. The Atlantic potential out there has already been tried. … Picture a football field — that’s ANWR — and a postage stamp. That’s the size of what we need to explore.

Not to mention the fact offshore drilling has major environmental risks not found when drilling on land! ~ Gary

Concerning slumping oil prices and job cuts:Now is the time to start planning for more drilling, for more production. With downturned prices like this, it gives y’all a chance to sort of catch a breath, right, and plan for the future. We can look at it as the glass half empty or half full. Of course, the half empty part is the job losses. From a humanitarian standpoint, it’s sad to see people threatened with their employment. But, on the other hand, these low oil prices can actually really help spur our economy and, ultimately, help the industry.

Right now low oil prices are helping to spur our economy, though they are hurting the oil and gas industry. Now is the time to plan for more drilling and more production. It’s a time to catch your breath and plan for the future.

Can government do anything to help the industry at this time?Usually government just gets in the way, and is so much of the problem in our economy. But right now government can spur more production by lifting the export ban.

But instead of common sense moves like that, the administration is hurting the industry by blocking Keystone XL, by pursuing land grab in Alaska. By enabling an EPA guilty of vast regulatory overreach. The punative aspect of it is to really stick it to the American people.

The president is not for American energy independence. If he were he wouldn’t be trying to lock up the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge. That’s 20 million more acres he wants to lock up from development.

All we need to explore and develop ANWR is a 2,000 acre swath. Alaska is 400 million acres when you consider our water and land. A postage stamp in the middle of a football field. That’s all the land we need to develop.

As for the Keystone XL pipline:It’s a no-brainer. It’s basic infrastructure. We have millions of mile of pipe streaming across this country. It’s the safest way to transport friendly fuel. It’s a shame [President Obama] has taken off the possibilities for America and for Canada to transport this fuel. It will get to market somehow.

Currently the oil in question is being transported by rail. There have been numerous spills due to derailments. NOT having the Keystone Pipeline is an environmental disaster. With the pipelines, spills are virtually none existent. Conspiracy theories have sprouted due to the fact the railroad used is owned by one of Obama’s top cronies, Warren Buffet. In public Buffet has said he is for the pipeline, even though it would hurt his bottom line. ~ Gary

The administration is not understanding the inherent link between energy and security and energy and prosperity. He’s rewarding the environmentalists who are extreme in saying there would be environmental harm in developing ANWR. They worry about the impact on the moose and caribou. Well we’ve had the Trans-Alaska Pipeline for decades, and that pipeline has not been adverse at all.

On the contrary, “the animals like the warmth that the pipeline gives off. “The animals mate under the pipeline. I haven’t actually seen it but that’s what I’m told. If oil and gas development is risky to wildlife, if it is to hurt one caribou, then that one caribou should take one for the team and allow the rest of the country to benefit.

sarah-palin-alaska-pipeline

Governor Sarah Palin and her team in front of the Trans-Alaska pipeline.

Speaker John Boehner, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, they took the time to fly up to Alaska and actually visit ANWR. The president has never been up there. Politicians need to take the time to see for themselves what they’re voting on.

I can’t wait for 2016. That election I can see from my house. I hope for a GOP candidate who understands energy and understands infrastructure.

Hillary Clinton will be the Democrat candidate because she has the money. After her, it’s a shallow bench.”

Is there any chance a dark horse could emerge to challenge her?Not really, because of the money. Hillary Clinton will seize the opportunity to collect those funds. Hillary is it.

As for Vice President Joe Biden?He’s been in politics long enough to have voted against the Trans-Alaska pipeline.

Palin says the field of GOP candidates representa deep bench.”

Common sense conservatives — we’re going to have our hands full.

Is Sarah Palin considering a run?I’m so sorry you asked that. It’s just too early. But a lot can change.”

Can we win?I don’t underestimate the wisdom of the people. Enough is enough for this hopey changey stuff that didn’t work.” America needs common sense. America needs to reclaim exceptionalism.

Candidate Obama promised to fundamentally transform America. But we don’t need that. We need to restore what’s great about America.

On the topic of international relations:

It’s been said that Saudi Arabia has recently been trying to seek back bigger market share. To penalize the shale players. And that the U.S. is going along with it to extract penalties against Putin and Iran.

But a side effect is that the U.S. is becoming more of the global oil swing player. The Saudis are basically allowing America to take over the decide on production levels and the market.

With so much of the world oil supply dominated by OPEC and Saudi Arabia, it’s just such a shame that we are so enormously under the influence of foreign countries.

We want to get out from under that. That’s why I support things like Keystone and fracking and horizontal drilling.

America should have the ultimate goal of being really energy independent, instead of going over to Saudi Arabia and bowing before the king. We don’t want to have to rely on what’s going on over there.

It’s tough to imagine that the Middle East can get even worse than it is, when you consider the evil. The terrorists spreading out across the globe. America losing its position of strength.

But it will get worse.

The Saudis will try to get rid of competition, which includes America.

Russia will be a problem as well.Putin is like a wounded bear. Very unpredictable. He still has the KGB in him. He bullies his neighbors.

There’s reports out there that billionaire Russians out there are helping to fund some U.S. environmental groups that oppose fracking and basic developments here so that the public will want to ratchet down production. That would bolster the position of the Saudis. The Russians. These dollars coming into environmental groups. I would like to find out whether that’s true.

America has to stand up to all this. It’s a psychological, emotional type thing. Our young people are losing the sense of what it means to be America. The Constitution, freedoms. What we will do on our lands. How we will responsibly develop God-given resources for our use. The founding fathers created a blueprint to allow us to be exceptional. We are exceptional.

Freedom isn’t free. You have to fight for it. That’s why I support the U.S. military. They are America’s true heroes.

Thanks to Michelle McCormick for her hard work and contributions.

Governor Sarah Palin: Why “Drill Baby, Drill” was Right

Sarah Palin CPAC 2014

By Gary P Jackson

This op-ed by Governor Palin originally appeared in the Texas Tribune and she posted a note on Facebook :

It’s always a pleasure returning to the beautiful Lone Star State. This week I’m in Houston speaking with the industrious men and women of America’s oil patch at the North American Prospect Expo. These are the unsung heroes of our nation’s energy renaissance.

In the brutal economic environment of the last six years, one sector had good news to report, and it came straight out of America’s oil patch. From 2007 to 2012, employment in the energy industry rose a dramatic 31.6 percent while employment nationwide fell 2.7 percent. U.S. oil production increased from 6.5 million barrels per day in 2012 to 7.4 million barrels per day in 2013, and in December, the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas produced its billionth barrel of oil. Thanks to American energy entrepreneurs’ drive and innovation, we’ve surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest oil and gas producer. This truly is a great American success story, and it’s a proud moment for those of us determined to educate D.C. bureaucrats on the link between energy and our security and prosperity.

Apparently, the president is pretty proud, too. In his State of the Union address last month, he boasted about the surge in oil and gas drilling, saying, “We are as free from the grip of foreign oil as we’ve been in almost 30 years.” From the way he’s talking, you’d think he coined the phrase “drill, baby, drill.” But it was just three years ago while campaigning in Miami that he lectured, “We can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices.” Respectfully, Mr. President, “yes we can.” And yes we did. Average gas prices were well over $3 in 2012, but in the first months of 2015, they’re near $2, with some states enjoying even lower prices.

Despite his newfound appreciation for drilling, the president fails to mention that most production is on private and state lands out of his control rather than on federal lands he can over-regulate and lock up. In fact, under the Obama administration, natural gas production on federal lands — onshore and offshore — has fallen an astonishing 28 percent while production on private and state lands, many sitting atop prolific shale plays like the Bakken and Eagle Ford, thankfully increased by 33 percent. Similarly, under Obama, oil production on federal lands has fallen 6 percent but increased by 61 percent on nonfederal lands.

Though they like to take credit for this energy renaissance, politicians weren’t the ones who searched the shale formations for resources to extract. It was our private sector, and its responsible use of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, that spearheaded the shale gas surge.

Our nation is blessed with the natural resources, the knowledge and the workforce to now take this energy renaissance to the next level. What we lack is the political leadership and courage to do so. T. Boone Pickens summed up the problem by observing that “a five-minute conversation on energy can’t happen in Washington, because within three minutes, you’ve run out of everything they know.” The private sector’s natural adversary has always been the market forces of supply and demand, so the last thing it needs is the artificial adversarial forces of political machinations.

Alaskans understand both of these frustrations. We know the challenges of wildly fluctuating oil prices. During the heyday of our trans-Alaska oil pipeline, oil prices were high, the boom was on and state government spent fast. Then the bottom fell out: $9 per barrel. Alaskans drove around with bumper stickers that read, “Dear God, give us another oil boom and we promise not to piss it away this time.” Alaskans also know the frustration of fighting against politicians in D.C. who constantly attempt to lock up huge swaths of our resource-rich Arctic land and water. Just last month, the Obama administration released a plan to potentially expand offshore drilling in Virginia and the Carolinas while placing millions of acres in Alaska off limits to future development. The president’s advisers would have you believe he’s being pragmatic, but to those in Houston and Anchorage, it looks like pretzel logic.

If the administration sincerely wanted to help our domestic energy sector, it would lift the four-decade-old ban on exporting crude oil. American producers shouldn’t have to beg permission of our own government to export our resources while the White House negotiates increased oil exports with Iran. For an administration not shy about acting on its own, it has no excuse to ignore this and not even consider lifting the ban. I challenge the watchdog press to ask why this is so.

The energy sector has been a star athlete, and Washington is scrambling on the sidelines, unaware of how to react. Let’s remind them that our government is supposed to work for us, not get in our way. Let’s tell them, “Just watch.” Watch how America’s oil patch fuels our nation’s economic engine. Watch how continued investment, innovation, exploration and production allow the U.S. to remain the global economic powerhouse. Watch the men and women of America’s new energy boomtowns in states like Texas show the bureaucrats in D.C. that no matter what roadblocks are placed in their way, they’ll find a way through and build a stronger America.

Besides the facts Governor Palin always brings to the table, the most interesting thing, to me, is where the appeared originally. The Texas Tribune is based in Austin, Texas and is as far left in it’s editorial content as can be. Kudos to the Tribune for hosting the Governor’s op-ed and allowing it to be seen by an audience that wouldn’t normally take the time to read anything Palin writes. Now let the further speculation regarding 2016 begin!

Fake Conservative From Texas Exposed!

Lawyers 1

By Isabel Matos

“Opening Arguments”

Members of the Jury of Voters and Readers of this Blog:

In our last session, you were presented with a preview of Linda Vega’s actions at the Republican Convention in Texas last summer, and other publicly displayed posts on her wall and website, which included what we shall consider the opening arguments for this case: 12 reasons for exposing the so-called Republican.

“On the Stand”

Today you will see The Real Linda Vega Interview conducted on January 2nd, 2014, with an interpretation of the story she tells in her own words.  It is up to you to decide whether she intends to deceive unsuspecting voters or not based on the information provided, and/or determine if further activism is needed to expose Ms. Vega if she has indeed, beyond a reasonable doubt, registered to be a Republican so that she can push an agenda that is not Republican.

Interjected between her replies are additions, corrections and more accurate interpretations of the information she provides. Texts and images that appear in the clip, and posts made by Ms. Vega in longer threads with dialogues were are all pertinent to the case, but were trimmed because of a time constraint of 15:30 on the clip, so be sure to use the pause feature to extend reading time as needed.

“What you will have seen in The Real Linda Vega Interview”

Introduction. Linda Vega is a Texas native. She was raised by the Rio Grande Valley. She attended the University of Texas in Austin, and got a law degree from George Washington Law School. She “came back” to Texas to run for Senate in 2014.  She says she sees a lot of gridlock in Washington and not a lot of problem-solving, says the deficit is growing and laws are being passed that are infringing on our liberties and breaking into the cause of flux of prosperity in Texas.

Experience.  Linda Vega says that being an attorney by trade helps her get through the gridlock and the rush of lobbyists that will be rushing to her door because she has “extensive training in talking to people”. In 2005 she started an organization called Latinos Ready To Vote where they “go out the community to talk to people about conservative values” which is sometimes difficult as many people do not understand conservative values until they are properly explained.

In problem solving, she brags, a dialogue is set with people to reach a point where you “both agree or disagree but respectfully to solve the problem at hand”.

When asked if there are too many lawyers in Washington, she agrees there probably are, but that in order to enact or write a law, you have to understand the realm of language and the realm of how a law is passed, and in hind sight, how these laws affect the constitution.  She says that many people do not know enough about the law and need to understand these things better.

When asked about the Government Shutdown and Mitch McConnell leading the Senate, Linda replies that the shutdown hurt our economy but it was an eye opener. She does not always agree with McConnell’s p.h.i.l.o.s.o.p.h.y. (Neither do we, but we are so much more passionately as real conservatives!)

When asked if the Affordable Health Care Act, Benghazi and Fast and Furious were impeachable offenses, she explains that there is a problem with using the term impeachment because it has been overused and usurped, adding that the president has a circle of people around him saying that what he is doing cannot be proven.  If those instances can be proven, she would agree to it.  Absolutely! She refers to Benghazi as a disaster that should have never happened and would support an Independent Council investigating Benghazi and Fast and Furious. Absolutely.

Amnesty. Amnesty is the centerpiece of Linda Vega’s argument in favor of legalizing illegals and her livelihood for that matter; however, she cannot honestly say she knows what it is.  “If you look it up in the dictionary, it says something about forgiveness. What is there to forgive?!” (With an issue as consequential to our country as Immigration Reform you would think someone as knowledgeable and resourceful as one of the 100 top attorneys in Texas would be, would know what is meant by the term we know as amnesty, right?)

Linda Vega insists she does not advocate for amnesty “under any circumstance”. According to her, if we really are TRUE to the Immigration problem that we have, we have to find solutions, “not propose ridiculous laws that are not going to solve the problems but allow them to escalate in another decade into a bigger problem, which is what we have done for the last 20 years.”

Laws are Emotional. Voting is Emotional. Linda writes that Obama got into power because people truly vote with emotion.  She WARNS that “Texans will feel the backlash that these ‘macho men’ are trying to sell and there will be no one to blame but these loudmouthed Latino haters”.  You will see how she herself intimidates as she falsely accuses others of using hate as a solution. Conservatism is about caring and having manners, but she is the one who seems to be projecting her own hate unto those she is trying to dupe. Even IF she speaks softly, with style and a smile, she is aggressive.

Do away with U.S. LAWS!  Linda Vega argues that wanting the laws that we have in place enforced doesn’t work because the laws in the INA conflict with each other. They are making undocumented people felons, and allowing undocumented people to stay in this country as felons is not a good law. It’s America’s fault (!!) that these laws are creating the problem (she never using the term “illegal” immigration or immigrant in her discourse, just “undocumented”).  Again, we have to DO AWAY with the laws if we are serious about Immigration policy.  She supported the S744 bill last year which she didn’t mention in the interview but we have the letter and video of here and here when I first heard about what she was trying to get away with here.

Deportation.  Although she is vehemently against amnesty, Linda says that in order to deport the undocumented, one really has to think about the fact that mass deportations means we are growing the government, and asks how anyone can call themselves a conservative if they are for growing the government? “Being a conservative means limited government”, she states.

Solutions.  Linda Vega repeats that America needs to own up and admit that to have a good immigration policy that the laws have caused this problem. We have DO AWAY WITH THE LAWS! (repeated), shut down the quota system in two to three years, allow those who have applied and have been waiting for that visa to obtain that visa. She is for deporting those who have a violent criminal records or who are here in the United States to hurt the U.S.

“Closing Arguments”

Closing arguments and more detailed information will be provided in the next post to complete the case against the Fake Conservative from Texas. We are not hear to smear someone’s reputation, but to expose important information that can (and should) lead to activism concerning primary reform. Linda Vega is free to run for office, just not as a Republican, and that is the basis for this presentation.

If and when members of the jury of voters and constituents in Texas decide there is enough evidence that she is NOT a REAL CONSERVATIVE like she says she is, they must insist that changes be made either through better vetting (as easy as reading Facebook posts and related links) and more honesty from their representatives who know this dirty little secret is going on.

Citizens who have information must share it and become fearless activists who will challenge the wrong-doers and not allow the wrong-doers to intimidate them in doing so.  It is time to be outspoken and responsible for the sake of American citizens and legal immigrants being cheated in this process.  In that spirit, if I have to, I will expose anyone who does not cooperate with sharing the truth. That’s it. Thank you for reading.

A Dirty Little Secret in Texas Politics

izzylovesfox1

By Isabel Matos

Please join me on January 2nd, 2015, when I release: The Real Linda Vega, an article-video exclusive for The Speech A Time For Choosing.  Check out the Tease:

A lot of people would like this story to go away but it won’t, nor should it.  I’m excited and pleased to present, based on public, not private information, a story I have put together using nothing but PDD – Public Displays of Deception of the politician concerned and a little information a concerned citizen came forward with. The fact they want to remain anonymous shows the level of fear and the intimidation these activist groups and attorneys who got involved in the matter have created already. It is great enough to cause concern because no one should be punished for exposing fake conservatives if that is what they are doing. Not a journalist, not a citizen, not any politician. It’s time to expose the dirty secret.

Why the story matters (all no-brainers, but the reasons should be listed anyway):

  • Democrats have no business running for Senate or other offices in Republican primaries.
  • Immigration Reform is too important of an issue to be decided by or misrepresented to voters by infiltrators in our party. 
  • Language matters. Definitions matter. Honesty and instilling confidence in voters matters. Our party platform must be clearly articulated so that voters can have confidence in the process and in elected officials. That means the word games used by these pseudo-Republican types must stop. Rinos, that means you, too. It goes without saying!
  • Political Organizations whose intentions are to turn not just one state, but all of America blue should be exposed and those exposing them should be supported. Don’t kill the messenger. Go after wrong-doers. 
  • Politicians who know that this little dirty game is going on should also be exposed.  That means all Senators, Congressmen, the Governor and potential presidential candidates.
  • Republicans in name only love to attack Conservatives, but are all too willing to condone left-leaning players. They are all complicit in corrupting our party and its message.
  • Our borders must be sovereign. Anyone against this is against America’s sovereignty and the Republican party platform.
  • Courage is the audacity to overcome fear. Keeping quiet is not going to solve the problem. The consequences of keeping silent are far worse than taking the risk to speak up. It shows that the problem is bigger than what I first imagined because of the level of fear that has been instilled in whistle-blowers. There is nothing to fear but fear itself.
  • Attorneys who HIDE behind the twisting of words to change our laws, or who work to deceive the voting public should also be exposed.
  • Anyone subjecting any state deliberately to more illegality (and not the loose meaning of the term that is ignored) should be exposed.
  • There must be a clear definition (and obvious understanding) of what amnesty is, of what Conservatism is and any congressmen and woman who is unclear or vague about it needs to hear from you. Activism starts with you and your political clarity. You get the crooked politicians you vote for and don’t expose.
  • YOUR SENATOR, congressmen or governor should not be extorted by groups who do NOT even tolerate Republicans or their values. I understand politics is dirty and votes are needed but not at the expense of real citizens’ livelihoods. It is time to starve the beast of the manipulation going on by the left inside the right!

Texas Dirty little Secret

That’s it.  See you January 2nd.

Even Pope Francis Was In On the Deal! Ties to Cuba to Be Eased.

Memorial dedicated to the four who were murdered in the Florida Straits.memorial

Here are their names and a brief summary about what really happened.

carlos alberto costapablo moralesmario de la penaarmando alejandre

plaque 1

And here are the thugs released who were responsible for their murder:

just words

In his announcement last Wednesday, December 17th, President Barack Obama referred to the three men pictured above who were arrested after the shoot down (murder) of the Brothers to the Rescue pilots simply as “Cuban agents“, noting they had served more than 15 years in prison. (Talk about audacity!)

Labañino and Guerrero originally got life sentences on espionage charges, but later were re-sentenced by a court to 30 years and about 22 years, respectively… Gerardo Hernández, convicted in 2001, was serving a lifetime sentence for conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the shoot-down of two Brothers to the Rescue planes over Cuba in 1996. All three were arrested in 1998 and were part of the so-called “Cuban Five” group — Cuban nationals (convicted in 2001) of a spy ring called “the Wasp Network” which used shortwave radios to receive direction from Cuba, including demands for information on Cuban exile groups in Florida and U.S. military activities in the Caribbean. Read more

Obama also said that as far as he knew the “plane shut down” was not a premeditated move by Castro but a “tragic circumstance.” He said he was going to “weigh in” during the “healthy debate” inside Congress. He added that his policy against the embargo was going to give the United Nations and the Red Cross more freedom to help Cubans on the island.

I share the concerns of dissidents there and human rights activist that this is still a regime that represses its people“.

Cuban-American lawmakers have promised the relatives of The Brothers To The Rescue victims that they will do everything in their power to keep the embargo in place to pressure Cuban officials to respect human rights.  Let’s see what they do.

 *****

Left behind in all of this, the families of four men killed. They got the short end of the deal. They called Obama’s decision to release three of the members of the “Cuban Five” an insult to the U.S. justice system. Their biggest complaint was that they were not contacted by the Obama administration to prepare for the news.

“Everybody knows everyone’s phone numbers here, and any way to call, e-mail, anything, and nothing was done.”Marlene Alejandre Triana

“First, I want to say that I’m so happy that Alan Gross will be able to spend Hanukkah with his two daughters, ’cause I’ll never have that again with my father,” said Marelene Alejandre Triana, who was only 18 when her father, Armando Alejandre Jr., one of the four men on board Cessna Skymasters that had taken off from Opa-locka Airport on Feb. 24, 1996, was shot down over international waters.

“The only person that we had responsible for what happened, to be let go, it’s a slap in the face to my dad”.

For a tearful daughter Marlene Alejandre Triana, the relaxing of restrictions is especially painful because her father fought for the U.S. in Vietnam. “To me, it’s just a dishonor to my father’s memory, to every soldier that goes and does anything, that this can happen, that there’s no respect,” she said.

Interesting to note that Alan Gross has a picture of Che hanging on the wall as he and fellow attorneys prepare a message shortly after his arrival:

A tearful Miriam de la Peña said Raul Castro was the one who ordered the hit on The Brothers To The Rescue plane that her son, Mario de la Peña, was in when he died Feb. 24, 1996.

“I’d like to say that, not only do I feel that I’ve been slapped in the face by a president. I feel that the justice system of the United States of America today has suffered a big blow.

MOST INFURIATING (if it is even possible)!
Not mentioned much on my part because I am not interested in discussing matters that are divisive. It needs to be said that as a Catholic, I am beyond disappointed in the latest action of Pope Francis.  There is no comparison between the visit of Pope John Paul II to Cuba in 1998 who went to bring a new breeze (literally) and spiritual renewal which resulted in a return to churches all over Cuba, and the actions of this Pope (Francis) who helped broker a politically motivated deal that never even took into consideration the victims or their families but gave comfort to a murderous regime and a deliberately anti-American interests president instead.  Critics of the church may or may not use this to continue condemning the Catholic Church, but I will ignore them to be able to report the story.

Pope Francis paid for US-Cuba deal at secret Vatican meetings with Obama.

Barbaric regimes (not just Fidel’s) will never change with the lifting of sanctions. It is a dream romanticized by fools in the media like Chuck Todd to name one of dozens  if not hundreds.  You cannot legislate moral political leadership or force ruthless despots to have principles. Just two days following the announcement…

I have been standing with the families of the pilots who were murdered in the Brothers to the Rescue mission. They have my heart and prayers as they represent the injustice suffered by victims who have struggled not just against communism in Cuba, but misinformation and propaganda against its dissidents in the media.
Noam Chomsky: Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media.  (H/T David Rosenthal)
There are no limits to Fidel’s hatred for the people of Cuba. Likewise, no love by our president for Americans or a scintilla of concern for victims of political or religious persecution worldwide.  None. He is one of them.

History Repeats Itself in Obama’s New Policy Towards Cuba by Sarah Palin

Image courtesy of US4Palin

If anyone wonders why I support Sarah Palin, it is because we didn’t have anyone like her in politics to be the antidote for communism in Cuba.  Without putting too much pressure on one woman, she is a treasure because of her GOODNESS and FIGHT for the right things. This is scary to despots. So I believe and I have faith that since GOOD wins in the end, we shall prevail. I don’t know how else to express how disappointing and disheartening it is for people not to APPRECIATE what they have after all the evil and malice displayed over five decades.

I like how Sarah Palin has approached this Cuba deal because it is empowering to the people there.  That being said I hope and pray she knows Cubans who lost Cuba will never see it again out of conviction until the Castro brothers are gone (and even then the destruction has been so vast and permanent) and that it will remain just a remembrance of a healthy, prosperous and self-sufficient nation. It is lost and will never be the same. We who fought for her are thirsty for fighting for America.  It is going to be 56 years this January 1st that the revolution started and there is no end in sight to the tyranny.  I have lit my candle in solidarity for those fighting the oppression in Cuba, but Cuba is only in my heart and mind.  It is time to realize FIGHTING for AMERICA is our first hope!

*****

From protests in Miami to Candle lighting in solidarity all over the U.S. Few were unaffected by this story as we all are now brothers and sisters fighting for a universal and God-given right: freedom. In Cuba, the Billboard is obviously for the liberation of the murderous accomplices.

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.
