Norman Thomas The Socialist Party candidate for President of the US 1894–1968

There truly is tyranny in the midst of Obama’s chaos. In the midst of his chaos we are seeing a plan that is being implemented which follows the ideology of tyranny for rebuilding America.

Every move that Obama has made whether in financial, “reform,” health care, the possibility of blanket amnesty for illegal’s, the idiotic rules of engagement on the battle field, even the failure that we saw in the Gulf oil spill clean up, has a single minded direction which spells disaster for America. Obama’s chaos has a directed course which centralizes authority to the federal government and in many instances specifically the Executive Branch which allows greater control through government of every aspect of America life.

Even the total failure of the Gulf oil spill was being controlled specifically by the Obama White House which is why the disaster was a never ending cycle of chaos. Every attempt to handle the situation from even a state level is stopped due to some sort of federal problem that halts state operations. The berms in Louisiana were halted because of federal environmental regulation, barges extracting oil from the water were halted for inspection of life vests and fire extinguishers. This entire oil debacle is a government, (Obama), orchestrated failure showing the true tyrannical control that Obama has over this Nation at every turn.

All financial measures he has created through legislation centralizes control of financial markets and business to the federal government. Health care centralizes control of the industry to the federal government. The stimulus centralizes control through money allocated to the states of state and local programs. Even when federal money dries up the control of programs still rests with the federal government, paid for then by state funds.

The illegal immigration problem is being controlled by the Obama agenda. Obama who is now considering an Executive Order granting blanket amnesty to illegal aliens.

So while chaos reigns at the Obama White House, his tyrannical control of America and the rebuilding process of our country in his image which he promised in his campaign continues uninterrupted through the chaos. One has to wonder if the chaos is intentional in order to create confusion which allows his plan of government tyranny to be completed while everyone focuses on the chaos.

When the chaos is at its height some new piece of legislation slips through Congress almost unnoticed by the public

. Obama has become masterful at centralizing his power and that of the federal government in the midst of chaos that he has created.

Many see this chaos as a weakness of a poor leader. While this to a certain extent is true, could this chaotic governing by Obama be part of the plan in order to create the tyrannical and socialist America that he has wanted all along ? A plan that through chaos slides our Nation into tyranny and socialism right under the nose of even we who are in total opposition of everything he is doing.

Tyrants throughout history have used chaos to change the course of their countries. Chaos creates confusion, confusion creates misdirection and misdirection creates tyrants. Tyrants have historically used trouble whether manufactured or real as the catalyst to create the chaos necessary to force their control and centralize their power and authority.

This is the direction which we are moving under the chaotic control of Barack Obama. Power and authority is being centralized to the government and the Presidency. Chaos and confusion are his tools to shift control and create the tyrannical control that he sees as the reshaping of American life and society. There truly is tyranny in the midst of Obama’s chaos and our Nation is suffering from it and our future is in jeopardy because of

Progressive means using the force of government to make people behave the way you want. Behave, not as in “don’t kill people”, but behave as in “eat what I say, read what I say, buy what I say, do with your money and time what I say.”

I am not for that at all. In a nutshell, I support freedom. Which brings me to the giant police state which, if you don’t see it, you can stop reading now.

My premise would be that the people who are implementing these policies, from the lowly zoning inspector up through the TSA, Homeland Security and the real villains’ in the state and federal legislatures, are only doing what will be comfortable for them. If their actions cause trepidation about possible social consequences and do not stroke their oversized egos with public adulation, they will take a path of lesser resistance.

Right now, no matter what the government does in the way of taking away property or liberty, the people are still thanking the troops for protecting their freedom. They are still standing for the national anthem. They are still buying into the ingrained notion of “land of the free.’ This is a cultural matter and it needs to change. The first step in getting help is to realize we have a problem.

America Under The Heel Of Liberalism

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism.  But under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program,,until one day America Will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

Judge Rules Detroit Bankruptcy Unconstitutional, Claims It Fails to ‘Honor’ President Obama

pelosi laugh pic cuts out demonstratorsobama-biden laugh small

Hardened Indifference.  They are giving Americans the Screwing they voted for.

Mich. Judge  Claims It Fails to ‘Honor’ President Obama ?A Michigan judge ruled Friday that Republican Gov. Rick Snyder’s Detroit bankruptcy filing is a violation of the state’s constitution and that it fails to “honor” President Barack Obama who “took (Detroit’s auto companies) out of bankruptcy.”

County Circuit Judge Rosemary Aquilina said she hopes Gov. Snyder “reads certain sections of the (Michigan) constitution and reconsiders his actions.”

“I have some very serious concerns because there was this rush to bankruptcy court that didn’t have to occur and shouldn’t have occurred,” Aquilina said.

“Plaintiffs shouldn’t have been blindsided,” and “this process shouldn’t have been ignored.”

Kevyn Orr, Detroit’s state-appointed emergency manager, filed for Chapter 9 protection on Thursday after two municipal pension funds moved to sue him in an attempt to protect retiree benefits.

Currently, both pension funds have claims to roughly “$9.2 billion in unfunded pension and retiree health care liabilities,” the Free Press reports. The city’s debt and liabilities, Orr notes, could be as much as $20 billion.

State law protects pension benefits from being “diminished,” but filing in federal bankruptcy court takes away those protections.

After both funds moved to sue the emergency manager so at to protect retiree benefits, Orr had no choice but to file for Chapter 9. (Q Are these retirees Federal and State Government Unionized Bureaucrats? And will American Taxpayers be forced by Obama Handlers to bail them out just like GM ?)

“Aquilina’s order will quickly move to the Michigan Court of Appeals to address the state-level legal skirmishing over the Chapter 9 bankruptcy strategy,” the Detroit News reports.

“Union and pension plan-member court maneuvers have the potential to slow down federal bankruptcy proceedings and could land their effort to protect their retirement provisions in federal court,” the report adds.

Gov. Snyder and Orr filed for bankruptcy moments before attorneys representing the pension boards were able to get Aquilina to sign off on a restraining order. The judge was forced to accept the former and deny the later (much to her chagrin).

Before ruling the city’s bankruptcy filing “unconstitutional,” Judge Aquilina criticized Orr and the Snyder administration for outmaneuvering the pension board attorneys.

“It’s cheating, sir, and it’s cheating good people who work,” the judge told assistant Attorney General Brian Devlin. “It’s also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroit’s auto companies) out of bankruptcy.”

Aquilina added later that she would send President Obama a copy of her order.

“I know he’s watching this,” she said.

She added that the “president ultimately will have to take action to make sure existing pension commitments are honored,” the

Detroit News.

Union and pension board attorneys say the city needs to find a way to take pension plans out of the restructuring negotiations.

Attorney General Bill Schuette, on behalf of Snyder, filed an application for Appeals Court consideration of the order after Aquilina’s ruling was issued Friday, the Detroit News notes.

“Schuette asked the Appeals Court to put a hold on present and future lower-court proceedings until his appeal is decided,” it adds. “He planned to seek emergency consideration to expedite the process.”

Detroit on Thursday became the largest city in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy, as the state-appointed emergency manager filed for Chapter 9 protection.

Kevyn Orr, a bankruptcy expert, was hired by the state in March to lead Detroit out of a fiscal free-fall

and made the filing Thursday in federal bankruptcy court.

The emergency manager’s efforts to restructure the city’s finances fell apart after two municipal pension funds moved to protect retiree benefits from restructuring by suing Orr.

Despite Mr. Orr’s best efforts, he has been unable to reach a restructuring plan with the city’s creditors,” Republican Gov. Rick Snyder said in a letter. “I therefore agree that the only feasible path to a stable and solid Detroit is to file for bankruptcy protection.”

We must face fact that Detroit cannot & is not paying its debts,” he added, “it “is insolvent.”

 

Our Country Has Been Taken Over By A- Group Of Radical Deliberately Misleading Lying Socialists.

The Republican leaders- Speaker John Boehner, John McCain, and  Lindsey Graham won’t fight for us, won’t fight for the GOP conservative values, won‘t fight for what’s right. They allow the middle class Tea Party  people to be maligned as a group of racists. Its about time someone speaks up for Conservatives.

Truth, lies and Afghanistan – How military leaders have let us down

By LT. COL. DANIEL L. DAVIS

I spent last year in Afghanistan, visiting and talking with U.S. troops and their Afghan partners

My duties with the Army’s Rapid Equipping Force took me into every significant area where our soldiers engage the enemy. Over the course of 12 months, I covered more than 9,000 miles and talked, traveled and patrolled with troops in Kandahar, Kunar, Ghazni, Khost, Paktika, Kunduz, Balkh, Nangarhar and other provinces.

What I saw bore no resemblance to rosy official statements by U.S. military leaders about conditions on the ground. Entering this deployment, I was sincerely hoping to learn that the claims were true: that conditions in Afghanistan were improving, that the local government and military were progressing toward self-sufficiency. I did not need to witness dramatic improvements to be reassured, but merely hoped to see evidence of positive trends, to see companies or battalions produce even minimal but sustainable progress. Instead, I witnessed the absence of success on virtually every level.

My arrival in country in late 2010 marked the start of my fourth combat deployment, and my second in Afghanistan. A Regular Army officer in the Armor Branch, I served in Operation Desert Storm, in Afghanistan in 2005-06 and in Iraq in 2008-09. In the middle of my career, I spent eight years in the U.S. Army Reserve and held a number of civilian jobs — among them, legislative correspondent for defense and foreign affairs for Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas.

As a representative for the Rapid Equipping Force, I set out to talk to our troops about their needs and their circumstances. Along the way, I conducted mounted and dismounted combat patrols, spending time with conventional and Special Forces troops. I interviewed or had conversations with more than 250 soldiers in the field, from the lowest-ranking 19-year-old private to division commanders and staff members at every echelon. I spoke at length with Afghan security officials, Afghan civilians and a few village elders.  I saw the incredible difficulties any military force would have to pacify even a single area of any of those provinces; I heard many stories of how insurgents controlled virtually every piece of land beyond eyeshot of a U.S. or International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) base.

I saw little to no evidence the local governments were able to provide for the basic needs of the people. Some of the Afghan civilians I talked with said the people didn’t want to be connected to a predatory or incapable local government.

From time to time, I observed Afghan Security forces collude with the insurgency.

From Bad to Abysmal

Much of what I saw during my deployment, let alone read or wrote in official reports, I can’t talk about; the information remains classified. But I can say that such reports — mine and others’ — serve to illuminate the gulf between conditions on the ground and official statements of progress. And I can relate a few representative experiences, of the kind that I observed all over the country.

In January 2011, I made my first trip into the mountains of Kunar province near the Pakistan border to visit the troops of 1st Squadron, 32nd Cavalry. On a patrol to the northernmost U.S. position in eastern Afghanistan, we arrived at an Afghan National Police (ANP) station that had reported being attacked by the Taliban 2½ hours earlier.

Through the interpreter, I asked the police captain where the attack had originated, and he pointed to the side of a nearby mountain.

“What are your normal procedures in situations like these?” I asked. “Do you form up a squad and go after them? Do you periodically send out harassing patrols? What do you do?”

As the interpreter conveyed my questions, the captain’s head wheeled around, looking first at the interpreter and turning to me with an incredulous expression. Then he laughed.

“No! We don’t go after them,” he said. “That would be dangerous!”

According to the cavalry troopers, the Afghan policemen rarely leave the cover of the checkpoints. In that part of the province, the Taliban literally run free.

In June, I was in the Zharay district of Kandahar province, returning to a base from a dismounted patrol. Gunshots were audible as the Taliban attacked a U.S. checkpoint about one mile away.

As I entered the unit’s command post, the commander and his staff were watching a live video feed of the battle. Two ANP vehicles were blocking the main road leading to the site of the attack. The fire was coming from behind a haystack. We watched as two Afghan men emerged, mounted a motorcycle and began moving toward the Afghan policemen in their vehicles.

The U.S. commander turned around and told the Afghan radio operator to make sure the policemen halted the men. The radio operator shouted into the radio repeatedly, but got no answer.

On the screen, we watched as the two men slowly motored past the ANP vehicles. The policemen neither got out to stop the two men nor answered the radio — until the motorcycle was out of sight.

To a man, the U.S. officers in that unit told me they had nothing but contempt for the Afghan troops in their area — and that was before the above incident occurred.

In August, I went on a dismounted patrol with troops in the Panjwai district of Kandahar province. Several troops from the unit had recently been killed in action, one of whom was a very popular and experienced soldier. One of the unit’s senior officers rhetorically asked me, “How do I look these men in the eye and ask them to go out day after day on these missions? What’s harder: How do I look [my soldier’s] wife in the eye when I get back and tell her that her husband died for something meaningful? How do I do that?”

One of the senior enlisted leaders added, “Guys are saying, ‘I hope I live so I can at least get home to R&R leave before I get it,’ or ‘I hope I only lose a foot.’ Sometimes they even say which limb it might be: ‘Maybe it’ll only be my left foot.’ They don’t have a lot of confidence that the leadership two levels up really understands what they’re living here, what the situation really is.”

On Sept. 11, the 10th anniversary of the infamous attack on the U.S., I visited another unit in Kunar province, this one near the town of Asmar. I talked with the local official who served as the cultural adviser to the U.S. commander. Here’s how the conversation went:

Davis: “Here you have many units of the Afghan National Security Forces [ANSF]. Will they be able to hold out against the Taliban when U.S. troops leave this area?”

Adviser: “No. They are definitely not capable. Already all across this region [many elements of] the security forces have made deals with the Taliban. [The ANSF] won’t shoot at the Taliban, and the Taliban won’t shoot them.

“Also, when a Taliban member is arrested, he is soon released with no action taken against him. So when the Taliban returns [when the Americans leave after 2014], so too go the jobs, especially for everyone like me who has worked with the coalition.

“Recently, I got a cellphone call from a Talib who had captured a friend of mine. While I could hear, he began to beat him, telling me I’d better quit working for the Americans. I could hear my friend crying out in pain. [The Talib] said the next time they would kidnap my sons and do the same to them. Because of the direct threats, I’ve had to take my children out of school just to keep them safe.

“And last night, right on that mountain there [he pointed to a ridge overlooking the U.S. base, about 700 meters distant], a member of the ANP was murdered. The Taliban came and called him out, kidnapped him in front of his parents, and took him away and murdered him. He was a member of the ANP from another province and had come back to visit his parents. He was only 27 years old. The people are not safe anywhere.”

That murder took place within view of the U.S. base, a post nominally responsible for the security of an area of hundreds of square kilometers. Imagine how insecure the population is beyond visual range. And yet that conversation was representative of what I saw in many regions of Afghanistan.

In all of the places I visited, the tactical situation was bad to abysmal. If the events I have described — and many, many more I could mention — had been in the first year of war, or even the third or fourth, one might be willing to believe that Afghanistan was just a hard fight, and we should stick it out. Yet these incidents all happened in the 10th year of war.

As the numbers depicting casualties and enemy violence indicate the absence of progress, so too did my observations of the tactical situation all over Afghanistan.

Credibility Gap

I’m hardly the only one who has noted the discrepancy between official statements and the truth on the ground.

A January 2011 report by the Afghan NGO Security Office noted that public statements made by U.S. and ISAF leaders at the end of 2010 were “sharply divergent from IMF, [international military forces, NGO-speak for ISAF] ‘strategic communication’ messages suggesting improvements. We encourage [nongovernment organization personnel] to recognize that no matter how authoritative the source of any such claim, messages of the nature are solely intended to influence American and European public opinion ahead of the withdrawal, and are not intended to offer an accurate portrayal of the situation for those who live and work here.”

The following month, Anthony Cordesman, on behalf of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, wrote that ISAF and the U.S. leadership failed to report accurately on the reality of the situation in Afghanistan.

“Since June 2010, the unclassified reporting the U.S. does provide has steadily shrunk in content, effectively ‘spinning’ the road to victory by eliminating content that illustrates the full scale of the challenges ahead,” Cordesman wrote. “They also, however, were driven by political decisions to ignore or understate Taliban and insurgent gains from 2002 to 2009, to ignore the problems caused by weak and corrupt Afghan governance, to understate the risks posed by sanctuaries in Pakistan, and to ‘spin’ the value of tactical ISAF victories while ignoring the steady growth of Taliban influence and control.”

How many more men must die in support of a mission that is not succeeding and behind an array of more than seven years of optimistic statements by U.S. senior leaders in Afghanistan? No one expects our leaders to always have a successful plan. But we do expect — and the men who do the living, fighting and dying deserve — to have our leaders tell us the truth about what’s going on.

I first encountered senior-level equivocation during a 1997 division-level “experiment” that turned out to be far more setpiece than experiment. Over dinner at Fort Hood, Texas, Training and Doctrine Command leaders told me that the Advanced Warfighter Experiment (AWE) had shown that a “digital division” with fewer troops and more gear could be far more effective than current divisions. The next day, our congressional staff delegation observed the demonstration firsthand, and it didn’t take long to realize there was little substance to the claims. Virtually no legitimate experimentation was actually conducted. All parameters were carefully scripted. All events had a preordained sequence and outcome. The AWE was simply an expensive show, couched in the language of scientific experimentation and presented in glowing press releases and public statements, intended to persuade Congress to fund the Army’s preference. Citing the AWE’s “results,” Army leaders proceeded to eliminate one maneuver company per combat battalion. But the loss of fighting systems was never offset by a commensurate rise in killing capability.

A decade later, in the summer of 2007, I was assigned to the Future Combat Systems (FCS) organization at Fort Bliss, Texas. It didn’t take long to discover that the same thing the Army had done with a single division at Fort Hood in 1997 was now being done on a significantly larger scale with FCS. Year after year, the congressionally mandated reports from the Government Accountability Office revealed significant problems and warned that the system was in danger of failing. Each year, the Army’s senior leaders told members of Congress at hearings that GAO didn’t really understand the full picture and that to the contrary, the program was on schedule, on budget, and headed for success. Ultimately, of course, the program was canceled, with little but spinoffs to show for $18 billion spent.

If Americans were able to compare the public statements many of our leaders have made with classified data, this credibility gulf would be immediately observable. Naturally, I am not authorized to divulge classified material to the public. But I am legally able to share it with members of Congress. I have accordingly provided a much fuller accounting in a classified report to several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, senators and House members.A nonclassified version is available at http://www.afghanreport.com/. [Editor’s note: At press time, Army public affairs had not yet ruled on whether Davis could post this longer version.]

Tell The Truth

When it comes to deciding what matters are worth plunging our nation into war and which are not, our senior leaders owe it to the nation and to the uniformed members to be candid — graphically, if necessary — in telling them what’s at stake and how expensive potential success is likely to be. U.S. citizens and their elected representatives can decide if the risk to blood and treasure is worth it.

Likewise when having to decide whether to continue a war, alter its aims or to close off a campaign that cannot be won at an acceptable price, our senior leaders have an obligation to tell Congress and American people the unvarnished truth and let the people decide what course of action to choose. That is the very essence of civilian control of the military. The American people deserve better than what they’ve gotten from their senior uniformed leaders over the last number of years. Simply telling the truth would be a good start.

Congress should hold the line and refuse to spend a single dime on Obamacare implementation.

 

obamacare truck fixed  “Obama Care Unit O Transport”

by: Chris Jacobs

July 8, 2013 at 5:30 am

Last week, the Obama Administration attempted to spin its announcement of a one-year delay in Obamacare’s employer mandate as an effort to implement the law “in a careful, thoughtful manner.” Don’t be fooled. Even Democrats have admitted the law has turned into a massive “train wreck,” with delays, glitches, and problems aplenty. Here are a dozen more Obamacare implementation failures.

1. The CLASS Act: ABANDONED, THEN REPEALED

One Democrat famously called this new long-term care entitlement “a Ponzi scheme of the first order, the kind of thing that Bernie Madoff would have been proud of”—and so it proved. In the fall of 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) admitted CLASS could not be implemented in a fiscally sound manner—and Congress eventually repealed the program outright.

2. Exchanges: MISSED DEADLINES

Most states resisted Obamacare’s call to create insurance exchanges, choosing to let Washington create a federally run exchange instead. However, a Government Accountability Office report released last month noted that “critical” activities to create a federal exchange have not been completed, and the missed deadlines “suggest a potential for challenges going forward.”

3. HHS mandate: DELAYED; UNDER LEGAL CHALLENGE

Last year, the Administration announced a partial delay for Obamacare’s anti-conscience mandate. However, many employers have filed legal actions against the mandate, which forces them to fund products they find morally objectionable or pay massive fines.

4. Small business plan choice: DELAYED

The Administration announced in April that workers will not be able to choose plans from different health insurers in the small business exchanges next year—a delay that liberal blogger Joe Klein called “a really bad sign” of “Obamacare incompetence.”

5. Child-only plans: UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES

A drafting error in Obamacare has actually led to less access to care for children with pre-existing conditions. A 2011 report found that in 17 states, insurers are no longer selling child-only health insurance plans, because they fear that individuals will apply for coverage only after being diagnosed with a costly illness.

6. Basic health plan: DELAYED

This government-run plan for states, created as part of Obamacare, has also been delayed, prompting one Democrat to criticize the Administration for failing to “live up” to the law and implement it as written.

7. High-risk pools: UNDERPERFORMING; FUNDING LOW

This program for individuals with pre-existing conditions faced higher costs and lower enrollment than advertised. Though it was originally projected to cover up to 700,000 individuals, only about 110,000 have enrolled—yet the Administration had to halt new enrollment and take other radical measures to prevent the $5 billion program from running out of money.

8. Early retiree reinsurance: BROKE

The $5 billion in funding for this program was intended to last until 2014—but the program’s money ran out in 2011, two years ahead of schedule.

9. Waivers: UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES

After the law passed, HHS discovered that some of its new mandates would raise costs so much that employers would drop coverage rather than face skyrocketing premiums. Instead, the Administration announced a series of temporary waivers—and more than half the recipients of those waivers were members of union health insurance plans.

10. Co-ops: DEFUNDED

Congress blocked additional funding to this Obamacare program in January, and with good reason: In one case, a new health insurance co-op was called “fatally flawed” by Vermont’s state insurance commissioner.

11. “Employee free choice”: REPEALED

This provision, which would have allowed certain workers to use contributions from their employers to buy exchange health plans, was repealed in April 2011, as businesses considered it too complex and unworkable.

12. Medicaid expansion: REJECTED BY MANY STATES

Last year, the Supreme Court made Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion optional for states, ruling that Obamacare as written engaged in “economic dragooning” that puts “a gun to the head of states.” Many states are resisting Obamacare’s call to expand Medicaid, knowing that expansion will saddle them with additional, unsustainable costs.

As these examples demonstrate, it’s not just the employer mandate that’s flawed—it’s the entire law. Recognizing these myriad, massive failures, Congress should hold the line and refuse to spend a single dime on Obamacare implementation.

Obama’s Homeland Security Now Targets Sr. Citizens

evil face 2

by: Michael G. Leventhal –

Loss of liberty comes in increments. In Obama’s America, this was the case in Leesburg Florida, where Homeland Security thugs descended on the local Social Security office. Brandishing Assault Weapons they demanded the elderly “show us your papers.”

The intimidation of the elderly was part of what’s called “Operation Shield.” It’s billed as detecting the presence of allegedly unauthorized and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities. Yup. According to Obama’s Homeland Security, the elderly are now added to returning white Veterans as prime terrorist threats in America. So let’s see what America has become in a short period of time

large group we wont take it any more

(a)As of one year ago, the President now has the authority to shut down any website he wants to censor opposition and communication between people. (b) Under Amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act quietly signed by Obama on New Years Day 2012, he can have virtually any American citizen picked up, stripped of constitutional protections and held indefinitely. They will simply disappear. (c) The most responsible members of society are now being held up as potential “enemies of the state.”

Hello Suckers I’ve undercut our alliances; created massive debt that will destroy your decadent capitalist system; inserted Fascist/Marxists into the Executive Branch including the Department of Justice and am now poised to control your life through medical care. if you are not compliant.

The Communist Pol Pot murdered millions of the older generation in Laos to free the younger generation from its bourgeois influences. My stealing 550 Billion Dollars from Medicare when tens of millions are entering the system, is a step in this direction. I like to call it ‘The Final Solution to the Elderly Problem.’
And since I’ve deftly slipped total control over issuing student loans into Obamacare, only those young people who are compliant, will benefit from higher education. As for the universities, they will either teach what I want, or funding will be held back.
America will have two classes: In one generation, we will have an educated, privileged over-class of loyal, pampered, government employee bureaucrats and the rest will be proletarian masses. It will be just like the book 1984.
Congress leaped to join me. They are just interested in personal benefit. Whether they get re-elected is not important to most of them if you hold out new advantages. I simply offer any losers the prospect of Ambassadorships, federal judgeships, high pay big benefit government jobs or lobbyist positions in corporations I control.
Even those who see through my agenda have been conned into being ‘respectful and passive.’I’m rapidly becoming America’s Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro and can’t believe how easy the whole thing really was.

.’Obama Puts Americans Under Control of a Foreign Police Force.  http://BarackObamaWebPage.com
d)Little known to the American people, President Barack Hussein Obama signed an Executive Order placing the United States and its people one step closer to world government.
By removing language from President Reagan’s 1983 Executive Order 12425, this international law enforcement body  INTERPOL now, has the power to operate on American soil beyond the reach of our own top law enforcement arm, the FBI, and is immune from Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
INTERPOL now has full immunity from U.S. laws. In short, a global law enforcement entity now has full law-enforcement authority in the U.S. without any check on its power afforded by U.S. law and U.S. law enforcement agencies.
A foreign police force has never had diplomatic immunity and has always had to operate under the command of local authority. The Constitution is very clear in its intent not to abdicate any of our rights to a foreign power of any kind, but under the Obama Administration, this is coming to an end.

Even in Nazi Germany, it took years of incremental encroachment and propagandizing to achieve the police state. Obama has only been in office for three years.

For anyone intrigued with the History Channel and documentaries of Hitler’s last year in power, the psychology of the Obama administration and Barack in particular seems rather reminiscent.Obama appears to have become a lone wolf, estranged from his own government and surrounded by sycophants. He is no longer the out going politician weaving dreams of positivism among the masses.

He surrounds himself by close advisors like Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod who were with him since the early days of his It’s the Chicago equivalent of Munich Germany.

As with most of Hitler’s generals, members of the Obama government are virtually shut out. In point of fact, Obama doesn’t meet with his Cabinet members other than to get a photo op or two.Decisions are made in the presence of “yes men” (and women) who fill what’s left of Obama’s mind with dreams of past political conquest and lost dreams.Like Hitler, Obama is quite lazy. His day begins well after 9:00 a.m. after the requisite basketball practice and ends early. He then has dinner in his family residence with his wife and daughters, retreating afterwards into his own mind and fantasy.Obama is an isolated man in a collapsing political world. He leaves his White House bunker only to visit his metaphorical “Hitler Youth” of diehard supporters. (almost all his air force one trips are held at colleges and schools indocturating our impressionable youth with his disguised communist weasel juice, creating divides amoung our people)

. But the psychology seems eerily similar.Hitler hung his dementia on the hopes of “secret weapons.” Obama has them also, a potential 1 billion dollar war chest. He has millions of devotees who hang on to him.* They are like the Germans who were led from the national destruction and shown the death camps, exclaiming “If the Fuehrer only knew.” To a true believer, reality never really gains acceptance and if anything can be said of Obama’s “Hitler Youth,” reality has never been their strong point.

2012 marks that last election in America where there is a true two party system. For all intent and purposes, we’ve become Venezuela. 

Obama’s first four years was one of establishing the mechanisms for internet censorship and National Defense Authorization Act indefinite incarceration.  The next four years will begin the implementation stage.  Don’t worry.  It will begin slowly.  You won’t even see it happening until they come for you.

EPA is much more concerned with shutting down the fossil fuel industry than with improving the current system and our lives.

Last week, President Obama rolled out his climate change plan. A plan that will wipe out American jobs and raise electricity bills for hardworking American families across the country. President Obama needs to recognize that maintaining reliable and affordable energy is not something that just happens. When a switch is flipped, rarely do we stop and consider the tremendous amount of hard work and ingenuity that was required to light up a room or power equipment.
obama mansion Wonder if Obama’s family will be sitting in darkened rooms in his mansion? As, working people’s family’s must do because they cant afford the electric bill.

By and large, coal is what powers our economic engine. According to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), coal accounts for nearly 80% of the state’s electric generation. The reason coal remains a primary source of energy is not because of political gimmicks, subsidies, or special tax treatment. Coal powers America because it is cheap, abundant, and reliable.
The administration’s “War on Coal” threatens to eliminate coal as a viable option and replace it with unproven sources that cost more and deliver less. Even worse, if the president is successful, the coal industry and its thousands of Ohio employees will not be the only casualties. At a time when global competition is fierce, our businesses will be placed at an immediate disadvantage to nations like China, making it even more difficult to create jobs in America.

The news won’t be good for hardworking families, either, who can expect to see more of their paycheck going toward electric bills.
Coal energy does not have to come at the expense of the environment and the well-being of citizens. The coal industry has seen dramatic improvements in technology over the past several decades. New technologies have been adopted to capture, store, and reduce emissions.
It is important that research and development continues for clean coal technologies, since coal remains a proven, cost-effective method of generating the electricity necessary to grow the economy and power our communities.

Coal is not the single solution to our economic problems, but it should be part of the solution. America needs to adopt an all-of-the-above energy strategy that encompasses all forms of economically feasible generation. It is clear that the Administration isn’t interested in all-of-the-above. As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, I have seen first-hand that the EPA is much more concerned with shutting down the fossil fuel industry than with improving the current system.

We need more than one source of energy to attain energy independence and security, and coal must be a part of the equation. The coal industry contributes significantly to the vitality of the economy within Ohio, and the regulations put forward by the President this week hamper the job market for Ohio. I, along with my Republican colleagues in the House, am working every day to take a stand against these destructive policies.
