people are dieing.

They need our help in way of wood, propane, warm winter clothing,
food and assistance with plows.

The Audacity of deceit…Goodbye Guns!

Friday, November 07, 2008
 
Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign slogan, “the audacity of hope,” should have instead been “the audacity of deceit.” After months of telling the American people that he supports the Second Amendment, and only hours after being declared the president-elect, the Obama transition team website announced an agenda taken straight from the anti-gun lobby–four initiatives designed to ban guns and drive law-abiding firearm manufacturers and dealers out of business: “Making the expired federal assault weapons ban permanent.” Perhaps no other firearm issue has been more dishonestly portrayed by gun prohibitionists. Notwithstanding their predictions that the ban’s expiration in 2004 would bring about the end of civilization, for the last four years the nation’s murder rate has been lower than anytime since the mid-1960s. Studies for Congress, the Congressional Research Service, the National Institute of Justice, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found no evidence that gun prohibition or gun control reduces crime. Guns that were affected by the ban are used in only a tiny fraction of violent crime-about 35 times as many people are murdered without any sort of firearm (knives, bare hands, etc.), as with “assault weapons.” Obama says that “assault weapons” are machine guns that “belong on foreign battlefields,” but that is a lie; the guns are only semi-automatic, and they are not used by a military force anywhere on the planet. 

“Repeal the Tiahrt Amendment.” The amendment–endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police–prohibits the release of federal firearm tracing information to anyone other than a law enforcement agency conducting a bona fide criminal investigation. Anti-gun activists oppose the restriction, because it prevents them from obtaining tracing information and using it in frivolous lawsuits against law-abiding firearm manufacturers. Their lawsuits seek to obtain huge financial judgments against firearm manufacturers when a criminal uses a gun to inflict harm, even though the manufacturers have complied with all applicable laws. 

“Closing the gun show loophole.” There is no “loophole.” Under federal law, a firearm dealer must conduct a background check on anyone to whom he sells a gun, regardless of where the sale takes place. A person who is not a dealer may sell a gun from his personal collection without conducting a check. Gun prohibitionists claim that many criminals obtain guns from gun shows, though the most recent federal survey of convicted felons put the figure at only 0.7 percent. They also claim that non-dealers should be required to conduct checks when selling guns at shows, but the legislation they support goes far beyond imposing that lone requirement. In fact, anti-gun members of Congress voted against that limited measure, holding out for a broader bill intended to drive shows out of business. 

“Making guns in this country childproof.” “Childproof” is a codeword for a variety of schemes designed to prevent the sale of firearms by imposing impossible or highly expensive design requirements, such as biometric shooter-identification systems. While no one opposes keeping children safe, the fact is that accidental firearm-related deaths among children have decreased 86 percent since 1975, even as the numbers of children and guns have risen dramatically. Today, the chances of a child being killed in a firearm accident are less than one in a million.

 

This is a article, regarding oil & gas, granted I think the some of our land should be protected.  However, to cripple our economy in order for Obama to do this, is wrong.  There should be other answers, but it appears Obama’s threat to bankrupt the coal industry appears to be coming about.  He now will include gas.  When many of our people, and the rest of the country can bearly afford to heat thier homes, what kind of person would do this?

What is wrong with finding a alternative fuel before you kill the economies of Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Utah, and West Virginia, and much of appalachia?   This is a honest attempt to cripple the U. S. economy, and the sad part is Obama knows it.   Don’t say you were not warned, for all those who voted for this man, you deserve what you get.  For those who did not, we will now all suffer, because you wanted “Change’.  Let me know when no one can afford to heat thier homes, if you like the “Change”.

 

WASHINGTON – President-elect Obama plans to use his executive powers to make an immediate impact when he takes office, perhaps reversing Bush administration policies on stem cell research and domestic drilling for oil and natural gas.

John Podesta, Obama’s transition chief, said Sunday Obama is reviewing President Bush‘s executive orders on those issues and others as he works to undo policies enacted during eight years of Republican rule. He said the president can use such orders to move quickly on his own.

“There’s a lot that the president can do using his executive authority without waiting for congressional action, and I think we’ll see the president do that,” Podesta said. “I think that he feels like he has a real mandate for change. We need to get off the course that the Bush administration has set.”

Podesta also said Obama is working to build a diverse Cabinet. That includes reaching out to Republicans and independents — part of the broad coalition that supported Obama during the race against Republican John McCain. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been mentioned as a possible holdover.

“He’s not even a Republican,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said. “Why wouldn’t we want to keep him? He’s never been a registered Republican.”

Obama was elected on a promise of change, but the nature of the job makes it difficult for presidents to do much that has an immediate impact on the lives of average people. Congress plans to take up a second economic aid plan before year’s end — an effort Obama supports. But it could be months or longer before taxpayers see the effect.

Obama could use his executive powers to at least signal that Washington is changing.

“Obama’s advantage of course is he’ll have the House and the Senate working with him, and that makes it easier,” said Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond. “But even then, having an immediate impact is very difficult to do because the machinery of government doesn’t move that quickly.”

Presidents long have used executive orders to impose policy and set priorities. One of Bush’s first acts was to reinstate full abortion restrictions on U.S. overseas aid. The restrictions were first ordered by President Reagan and the first President Bush followed suit. President Clinton lifted them soon after he occupied the Oval Office and it wouldn’t be surprising if Obama did the same.

Executive orders “have the power of law and they can cover just about anything,” Tobias said in a telephone interview.

Bush used his executive power to limit federal spending on embryonic stem cell research, a position championed by opponents of abortion rights who argue that destroying embryos is akin to killing a fetus. Obama has supported the research in an effort to find cures for diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Many moderate Republicans also support the research, giving it the stamp of bipartisanship.

On drilling, the federal Bureau of Land Management is opening about 360,000 acres of public land in Utah to oil and gas drilling. Bush administration officials argue that the drilling will not harm sensitive areas; environmentalists oppose it.

“They want to have oil and gas drilling in some of the most sensitive, fragile lands in Utah,” Podesta said. “I think that’s a mistake.”

Two top House Republicans said there is a willingness to try to work with Obama to get things done. But they said to expect Republicans to serve as a check against the power held by Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress.

“It’s going to be a cheerful opposition,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind. “We’re going to carry those timeless principles of limited government, a strong defense, traditional values, to the American people.”

Pence, of Indiana, is expected to take over the No. 3 leadership post among House Republicans.

In other transition matters, Obama’s new chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, would not say whether Obama would return to the Senate for votes during the postelection session this month. Obama’s presence would be extraordinary, given his position as president-elect, especially if Congress takes up a much-anticipated economic stimulus plan.

“I think that the basic approach has been he’s going to be here in Chicago, setting up his economic, not only his economic team, but the policies he wants to outline for the country as soon as he gets sworn in, so we hit the ground running,” Emanuel said.

Also, Emanuel would not commit to a Democratic proposal to help the auto industry with some of the $700 billion approved by Congress to for the financial bailout.

Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a letter Saturday to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson that the administration should consider expanding the bailout to include car companies.

Podesta appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” as did Pence, and CNN’s “Late Edition,” where Reid also was interviewed. Emanuel spoke on ABC’s “This Week” and CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“Because He’s Black…

buar01_obama

 

There are times, when stillness engulfs us, today is one of those days.  Maybe, it the reality that after almost 2 years, it is over.  To many of us, fairness and democracy have died.  It is a disappointing feeling, to know that women, gays and many other minorities were treated so unfairly this election season.  I suppose we all should be happy that we now how the first Black President.  But I see this through different eyes.   We have spent the past two years, watching the media fall down and almost worship Barrack Obama.  As, A woman and a minority, I find this very disheartening.  The degree of discrimination in this election was unprecedented.  And, I am saying this was Not Discrimination against Blacks.

 

Now, before everyone starts accusing me of being racist let me explain.  All members of the media, the Clintons and anyone who spoke about the election, tip toed around the subject.  No one, could even criticize Obama, without being called a racist.  Even people who had worked for Civil Rights, were not immune.  The Obama camp, even accused Bill Clinton of being a racist.  However, any mention that Obama, having attended Wrights church was considered racist.  It did not matter, if it were true. 

 

In this election, the pendulum of civil rights has swung, the opposite direction.  92% of Blacks voted for Obama.  This election, was not based on merit, it was based on race and gender.  Anyone who thinks otherwise, is either blind or a fool.  What has been almost totally ignored, and buried under the first “black president”, is the fact that qualified women were trampled on, in order to achieve this goal.  During this campaign season, I did research on the women’s movement.  I have to say, I was appalled at the treatment of them through the years.  As, A matter of fact, black men have faired much better in the last 130 years. 

 

The real second class citizens in this country are not blacks, they are women, gays, Native Americans and countless other minorities.  Let me explain, before every black person online starts calling me a racist.  The sad truth is that, I am sure discrimination of blacks exists.  But, what has happened over many years, is that racism has become the favorite word for anyone black to use as an excuse.  It is clearly overused, even if you have a valid point, as with Obama.  Anything negative is blamed on racism.  I have come to the conclusion that it does not matter, if he was not born in America.  “Because He’s Black”, we cannot dare question, his birth.  Thus, it would be considered racism.  However, 4 years ago, it was fine to question John McCain on his birth.  The reason is simply, “Because he’s white”, it ok.

 

Another good example of this double standard is Barney Frank.  Mr. Frank is a white man, but gay.   Recently, he appeared on Fox news and was interviewed by O’Reily.   It was a tough interview, and Bill accused Mr. Frank of many things including the Freddie and Fanny Mae mess.  It was a very heated exchange, and not once did I hear anyone say, “stop, wait, you are discriminating against me, because I am gay”.  Yet, any mention of Obama’s stance on Fannie and Freddie, was not talked about, for fear of racism.  John McCain’s camp clearly did not run TV ads, exposing Obama for his faults, out of this fear.

 

The “Because I’m Black”, excuse has been so overused in this country that it is now, common knowledge that it is fine to question the integrity of a woman, or gay person.  But it is not acceptable to ask that of a Black person.  This has affected the outcome of this election, have no doubt.  For example, many found it fine, to call Hillary Clinton a Bitch, or hang A Sarah Palin effigy from a noose in California.  This even attracted large crowds to see the spectacle. However, an effigy of Obama was hung, and the men arrested.  So, now tell me who are really the second class citizens?  

 

This sends a message to every American, that the color of your skin, does mean you are treated differently.  And, it’s not always a bad thing depending on who you are.  I have no doubt, that not all take advantage of this, but many do.  It is something that has been going on, in our society for a long time.  This election clearly shows everyone the true America.  Many say the best, but I have to disagree.  I think we should pick a president, based on his or her qualifications.  Thus, stopping the “Because he’s black” syndrome in its tracks. 

 

So, now that we have a Black President, what will change?  Much I am sure, but most importantly, free speech.  The news media, criticized President Bush, for years. Not once did we hear, “You can’t criticize Bush, Cause he’s White, You’re a Racist”!  However, I am sure speaking out against Obama, will not be tolerated by the new administration.  Just this past week, reporters were thrown off his plane, due to not endorsing him. The excuse for any negative remarks, will always be “Because he is black”, anything we say will be racist. 

 

At the very least, the Rev. Wright ordeal, showed truly how racist & sexist many are.  And the truth is, not all racist are white.  Now, let all hope and pray, that Obama will be a good president.  Why?

 

Because He’s Black….

The Day After The Death Of Democracy (Update)

Thanks to renaissancelady48 for letting us post this!

Like many others I cried real tears, I cried my heart out because last night I witnessed the utter destruction of democracy in this country. Obama is president elect, a false messiah with tendency to pathological narcissism. He must be worshiped by the masses, he has created a cult of personality.

He didn’t get where he is today legally. As is the custom of all Chicago politicians he bent every rule. And his every illegal action was swept under the rug, never punished. He removed security measures from his donation site to allow foreign money into his campaign coffers. He took advantage of every loophole in the FEC laws with no consequences. He cheated his way to the presidency.

I for one will always see him as the illegitimate successor to Bush. An unvetted and inexperienced tool for Reid, Pelosi, Dean and all the other members of the un-Democratic Party. The same party that left me behind. The same party that beat democracy to death this year. Webster’s and all the other dictionaries should just erase that word because it no longer exists.

Obama’s ascendancy to the highest office in the land has exposed all the weaknesses in the election laws in all 50 states. It has also exposed the unwillingness of the Department of Justice and the Federal Election Commission to do anything about Obama’s crimes and there are many. The glaring reason for the inability to do anything is their partisanship. I do contend that the DOJ and FEC have a wanton disregard for the laws.

As the real anguish and grief begin to reach an absolute feverish pitch, we must vow to regain our democracy for the sake of all peoples even if they were foolish enough to be fooled by the most corrupt and illegal candidate produced since Watergate. And looking back Watergate was nothing compared to the potential Obama-gate. We must work hard to throw Democrats and Republicans out of Congress during the mid-term elections.

Here is my list of actions which will assist with working through the stages of grief.

!. Election Reform in all 50 states. The language of the law must not allow any loopholes to exist. The law will have specific language including voter id for all voters. In regards to punishment it will be awarded. Heavy fines and jail time. No excuses.

2. Eliminate the Electoral College once and for all. This reform though it would change the structure first put in place by our founding father’s does not accurately reflect the American populace today. This type of a sweeping would level the playing field as well.

3. Federal Election Commission. There must be serious reform with in the campaign finance laws. McCain/Feingold did not go far enough. It must address donations via the Internet. The language must clearly state that all security measures must remain in place for credit card donations. The FEC panel must be non-partisan. It is not at this time. Changes need to address FEC filings. The language must state that changes to FEC filings may not be made. It must also state that any changes to FEC filings is done under penalty. These penalties must include heavy fines and jail time. No exceptions.

4. The Republican Party and Democratic Party. These parties are both seriously divided and broken. They have been unable to unite in any firm manner to make this country their first priority. The Democratic Party is beyond reform especially since it is now largely an Obama run organization. The Republican Party is much like the the Democratic Party, they have done very little to advance the needs of the country and its populace. It is time for a new party. It must be non-partisan, a true Independent Party. It will take a great deal of work for us to get recognized in all 50 states but it is a priority. For the first time in my life I have to admit there is no fixing the two party system. It is damaged beyond repair.

Now that I have outlined my ideas it is time for all those who have been so devastated by the election of Obama to lead this land, we must come together. We must no longer accept the status quo. We must form that third party, a party of the people, truly non-partisan and begin to build our power base. It will be a long fight. We must do it or there will never be true reform in DC.

And four years from now we will truly wonder what happened to the awe we feel each time we see the flag waving so smartly in the wind or on the bow of a Naval vessel when they have returned home from protecting our freedom. We will wonder what happened to our country and why our reputation is tarnished once again. It will be tarnished because we the people selected a man who wants to pull troops from the current wars, once again abandoning people we said we would help. Once more we will break our promise. And for once our collective heart will break because we will no longer be that ‘”super power”, we will be lower than pond scum. History will not be revised, it will be a repeat of yesterday in far away lands and one of those lands is Afghanistan….

Update: Post-Mortem For The Democratic Party

From Cece:

My proposed idea is to hold vigils or funerals throughout the U.S. (and abroad, if JSND members are inclined) on a set day and at a specific time. We would memorialize the death of the Democratic Party, eulogize the party, etc. We could also try to secure some private land (via members) to have bonfires to burn voter registration cards marked democratic (fake that we would provide in the event that it is illegal to burn such cards) and effigies if desired. Members could video tape and record the events for press release or a compilation of the days events for distribution to media outlets.

We may well be served to have only a small number involved in a “stealth operation” to coordinate the activities before informing the public and then, the media of our activities. We may wish to coordinate this for a date close to the inauguration, such as January 17th or 18th.

In summary, we would have a concrete means by which to display our displeasure with the whole election process and the Democratic Party as a group with the opportunity to announce our plans for the future.

Please let me know your opinion. Thank you for fighting the GOOD FIGHT!

“It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate and tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” -Samuel Adams

Tonight, America Died…….

Tonight, many  of us witnessed the death of America.  Freedom is now a memory of the past, a faded lighted forever silenced.  The voters of this country have finally accomplished what so many have tryed to destroy.  The poetic justice of the enitre thing is that, we have destoryed ourselves from within.  It was not a great nation, or terrorist that killed America.  it was us, the voter.   America stole the land from the Native American, now they have destroyed those who destroyed us.  Our group and website will continue until, we are silenced by the new Obama admistration.  I have to think, that should not take to long at all. 

Once our economy as we know it is gone, and our people starving, we will get the picture.  But for many who are worshipping the new “messiah”, I am sure they are happy.  But let this be a warning, as long as we still have free speech I will be here to speak.  I do not think the American people have any idea what they have done.  They will find out soon, when the second admendment are gone, when we can no longer speak freely, and when we all live in a socialist country. 

For those, I will be here to say I told you so……

This country was founded on freedoms, these will be no more.  Our lives will be forever chagned.  The Mayain people claimed the world would end in 2012, this may be possible.  Things are falling in place, and the world as we know it is forever changing. 

To the children of Isreal, complete the temple, he is here..
