Obamacare TAX

June 29, 2012

Yesterday’s decision from the Supreme Court came as a big surprise to many of us Conservatives who oppose Obamacare.  What made the decision so difficult is just how wrong the experts got it.  The focus was on Kennedy as the swing vote and it turns out the swing vote comes from a conservative, Justice Roberts, appointed by GW Bush.  It is fair to say nobody saw that coming.

As disappointing as the vote by the Supreme Court, opponents of large government and Obamacare in particular can make a difference with their vote.  Obamacare can be defeated by We the People, but only if we remove Obama from the White House and regain a majority in the US Senate.  That is the only way we can repeal this law now that it has been ruled constitutional.

Chief Justice Roberts is not very popular with conservatives today and for good reason.  His reasoning this is a taxing power that falls within Congress is misguided.  Obama told the American people this is not a tax.  Well guess what, the Supreme Court has ruled it is in fact a tax and it will represent one of the largest taxes in US history.  For the very first time Americans are taxed for not buying something which is unprecedented!  That should be an important message in the fall during the election campaign.

The Latest White House Diversion

June 24, 2012

Obama campaigned on a promise of hope and change for America.  Really?  Since taking the oath of office Obama has worked hard at consolidating power for the Executive Branch.  His appointment of czars was the initial step to build up his power within the White House. His Czar program has resulted in an almost complete meltdown of the American economy.

In just the past few weeks Obama has even exceeded  G W Bush in using Presidential authority to work outside congress, implementing policy, without actual legislation being passed to make it constitutional. 

*  Compiled an Assassination List of suspected terrorists

*  Ordered Homeland Security to suspend enforcement action deporting certain illegal aliens.

*  Invoked executive privilege for the Justice Department and Attorney General Erik Holder          preventing the release of documents to congress conducting an inquiry into Fast & Furious.

Late in the week, White House spokesman, Jay Carney  spoke to the press about the separation of powers rather then the checks and balances that are the corner stone of our constitution.  ” It is his (Obama’s), as the steward of the executive branch, to retain the capacity of this administration and every administration going forward to function appropriately and independently from the congressional branch of government”.  “The assertion of privilege has to do with the absolute necessity of retaining the executive branch’s independence enshrined in the Constitution in the separation of powers to allow it to appropriately and independently deliberate and respond to those kinds of inquiries.”  What makes this White House response so hypocritical is this quote from then US Senator Barrack Obama in 2007:  He criticized President Bush publicly for using executive privilege to shield aide Karl Rove from congressional questions about politics in the Justice Department.   Do as I say not as I do appears to be the change Obama has brought to the White House as part of his Hope and Change promise.

As serious as these issues are for Americans.  I personally feel these issues are being used as a diversionary tactic to steer the public eye aways from the economy and the record Obama has established as a failed leader in pulling America out of the worst recession in the history of this country.  Having these issues in the news allows him to use the partisan politics argument, which can only help his slim chance for re-election.   There will be plenty of time after the election to go back and investigate and where criminal or ethic violations have occurred prosecute.  But for now, let’s keep the focus on this simple fact.  The far left president and his advisers are pushing America over a huge cliff.  If we do not stop him in November it will be too late.  Stay on focus and keep his record on ruining the economy as your mantra for the November election. 

 

Action Deserving of Contempt!

June 21, 2012

 

Attorney General Eric Holder will be held in contempt of Congress for failing to produce documents they requested for their investigation on the Fast & Furious program approved by his office.  The seriousness of the issue has just been elevated  by Obama’s decision to use his executive privilege power to protect Holder and the documents Congress requested.

We now have a situation where the White House is protecting or covering up information  requested by Congress.  The question is why?  I realize the majority of Americans do not follow politics close enough to know the reason.  There must be damaging information in those documents that will both embarrass and possibly indict people  involved in the Fast & Furious program that led to a Federal Agent being killed.  As Americans we have the right to know what happened, why it happened and most important who was responsible.

President Obama’s action just created almost the exact same situation created by one of his predecessors,  Richard Nixon, back in the early 70’s.  Instead of cooperating and coming clean with the truth about Fast & Furious,  Obama chose to stone wall it by invoking executive privilege.  You must understand that House Oversight Chairman, Issa-R CA.  must already know there are documents that will incriminate high level members of Obama’s government, possibly the Attorney General himself.  So, instead of cooperation and transparency ( something Obama promised during his campaign) he has chosen to stone wall the investigation to seek the truth about Fast & Furious.

Executive Privilege is a power only the President holds to protect sensitive information given by his advisers over matters that may affect national security.  This case involves the Criminal Justice Department not the White House and has nothing to do with National Security.   Obama should release the documents now,  not later when the courts order it, which of course will come after the election.  How convenient for them!

 

We Are Not Racists Sam Donaldson!

June 19, 2012

Sam Donaldson accused anyone opposing Obama’s new policy (not enforcing the immigration laws pertaining to certain Mexican illegal’s) as Racist!  I am offended by those remarks and if you believe in our constitution and our nation of laws you should be offended.

We are not racists because we oppose a policy designed to ignore the constitution and is politically motivated.  What it does make us is smart, it means we are paying attention and we refuse to be silent while you undermine the law!

President Obama does NOT have the authority under the constitution to be selective about what parts of the constitution he chooses to protect and defend.  Obama took an oath and if he understands the oath. “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  He knows he is outside the scope of his power.  Obama is on record stating he took an oath to defend and preserve the constitution as a way of not acting before on the immigration issue. He said it was congress job and it was up to them to reform immigration.  He was right, and it was Democrat Harry Reid who was blocking a bill crafted by Marco Rubio to reform the immigration law.

We oppose that issue for that reason Mr. Donaldson.  That does not make us racists.   Quite frankly sir, your comments are appalling and offensive and an apology to conservative Americans, who believe in the constitution, is warranted.  Man up Mr. Donaldson.

Alcee Hastings Wants The Dead To Vote!

June 7, 2012

This photo is of U.S. Representative, Alcee Hastings. D – FL  He was impeached as a Federal Judge. In 1988, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives took up the case, and Hastings was impeached for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3. He was then convicted in 1989 by the United States Senate, becoming the sixth federal judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office by the Senate. Does anyone else find it laughable the liberal left is using him as a mouth piece to oppose Gov. Scott’s initiative to remove dead people and illegals from the voting rolls?  How stupid do Liberals think we are?  Why would Democrats be opposed to clearing the voter registration rolls of people who do not have the legal right to vote or are dead?  My guess is because it has worked out so well for them in Chicago over the years!
