I know this is old news, It’s really too bad those who voted for Obama did not pay attention to what he said – day in/day out, then he probably couldn’t have done the damage he did do while serving as the only black American President of the United States.

The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised “Meet The Press.” From Sunday’s 07 Sept. 2008, 11:48:04 EST, Televised “Meet the Press,” THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.

General Bill Gann, USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.  The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…

During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart, or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It.”

Senator Obama replied :

“As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides. There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression… The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”

Obama continued: “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing.’ If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.

It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails, perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments.”

“When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.

“Of course now, I have found myself about to become The President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside . I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black   Family. Indeed

So sad.

 

 

 

Robert Mueller, This Investigation is Personal

ROBERT MUELLER: UNMASKED

by Congressman Louie Gohmert

Robert Mueller has a long and sordid history of illicitly targeting innocent people that is a stain upon the legacy of American jurisprudence. He lacks the judgment and credibility to lead the prosecution of anyone.
I do not make these statements lightly.
Each time I prepared to question Mueller during Congressional hearings, the more concerned I became about his work ethic. Then as I went back to begin compiling all that information in order to recount personal interactions with Mueller, the more clearly the big picture began to come into focus. At one point I had to make the decision to stop adding to this or it would turn into a far too lengthy project.

In Honor of Mr. Thomas Jefferson’s 275th Birthday

More on “Thomas Jefferson” on The Imaginative Conservative (including quotations from Mr. Jefferson)

 

Temperate, sound in morals, sound in taste, learned in more than one discipline, open-handed, ready to fill great offices at personal sacrifice and then to retire modestly to Monticello—this was the genuine Jefferson, no doctrinaire egalitarian, no abstract intellectual…Jefferson indeed was a Whig through and through, with the virtues and the defects of the breed. Joined with this Whiggery was another facet of his character…a bitter partisanship, not overly scrupulous…Jefferson could be ferociously emotional in politics.—Russell Kirk (pg. xvii, introduction to Mr. Jefferson by Albert J. Nock)

Jefferson and his friends came to power (the “Revolution of 1800”) in opposition to the economic and moral imperialism of Hamilton and his friends—a program of taxes, manipulation of the economy for the inevitable benefit of the few and the burden of the many, moral dragooning of the population, and involvement in foreign power politics. It was this threat that Jefferson and his friends put down, and kept down, for half a century—the happiest era of the Union.—Clyde Wilson (Thomas Jefferson’s Birthday)

Jefferson, despite the show of French ideas which he made from time to time, founded his idea of liberty and justice upon the writings of Coke and Kames and the other English juridical writers, and upon the tradition of English freedom from the Anglo-Saxons down to the 18th century.—Russell Kirk, Program for Conservatives

Among the agrarian and democratic Republicans looms the angular figure of Jefferson, whose doctrines always were more radical than his practice and far less extreme than French notions of liberty…as his talents were immensely varied, so did his character display odd and sometimes inconsistent facets…Yet for all this, and for all his acquaintance with the philosophes and his affection for France, Jefferson had Coke, Locke, and Kames for his real political mentors; and, like them, he had half a mind to be a conservative—and sometimes more than half a mind for it.—Russell Kirk, The Conservative Mind, p. 73

For every action there is a reaction.

By Russell941

Well, the 2018 mid-term elections are on us. As we all know, today every aspect of our existence is affected by government, so naturally, I do understand why we want to keep an eye on the thing.  That’s just good citizenship.

Damn! Here we go again. The Senate this week passed a 2,200-page, $1.3 trillion spending bill that includes some wins for both parties, but avoids major issues that the voter think important. Yes, it will keep the government open through the end of September. Without a doubt, the passing of the 1.3 trillion dollar budget bill, one thing has become crystal clear, insane liberals and the corrupt Washington elite always win the day, no matter what the election results may say.  This is a fact of life.

One of the big points of the omnibus spending bill, passed by the Republican-controlled House and Senate, will allow more illegal aliens to be released into the United States after they are caught crossing the southern border through the “Catch and Release” program.   For every action there is a reaction.

For nearly six decades now, we’ve watched this charade time after time. This crap has got to stop. Despite Republican or Democratic promises for fiscal responsibility, they continue to spend like a bunch of drunken sailors on liberty.  Our elected leaders chose to blow this huge amount of money without even the pretense of having read the frickin’ bill is both shocking, disgusting and unbelievable. What is hard to handle is most of us remain complacent and continue about our daily routines like I don’t have time or I don’t give a shit. We barely blink as Congress binges on $1.3 trillion in unpaid- federal spending.  Thinking back not that long to ago, a bill hammered out in secret. caused the House to revolt against then-speaker dumb ass John Boehner. Yet today’s secretly negotiated package fails to crack even the front page of the news,  we are treated instead to the blow by blow details of Trump’s alleged affair with a Playboy model. This is our American version of the great America.

When I look back at all the election I voted in the one thing jumps out at me over and over and over is politicians are the only people in the world who work their ass off at creating problems and then have the gall to come to us blowing  smoke up our skirt then go all out to campaign against the problem. Just think for one minute—I think we have a problem here.

All right, for example, have you ever wondered, we hear all the time both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, then WHY in the cat hair do we have deficits? Deficits just didn’t jump out of thin air, do they. For every action there is a reaction.

OK! how about this one, have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY in the cat hair do we have inflation and high taxes? For every action there is a reaction.

Let’s look at this:

  • You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.
  • You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.
  • The House of Representatives does.
  • You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
  • You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
  • You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

Now let’s look at the players here:

We have 100 senators, 435 congressmen, 1  President, and 9 Supreme Court justices. Now that equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million plus voters. The way I see this is that the 545 politicians are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country, without any doubt.

To be fair here I have to exclude the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that frickin’ problem was created by the dumb ass Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated it’s Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

Oh hell, I have to exclude all the special interests and dirt bag lobbyists for this reason:  They have no legal authority and they have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one frickin’ thing.

Now, think about this! I do not give a damn if they offer a politician $50 million dollars in cash, they just don’t have any authority.

Now, at this point the politician has the power to accept or reject it.

No matter what the dirt bag lobbyist promises, it is the politician’s responsibility to determine how he or she votes.  For every action there is a reaction.

Those 545 politicians that we sent to Washington to do our business will spend much of their time and energy convincing you and me that what they did or how they voted is never their fault. Now that’s BULL SHIT!!

They all cooperate in some form of this misinformation BS regardless of party.  For every action there is a reaction.

I think one of the biggest things that separate a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of arrogance, self-importance and gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a House Speaker, who stands up and criticizes the President for creating deficits. (The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.)

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? That would be Paul Ryan. He is the leader of the majority party. (Right) He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. (Right) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it or override his veto if they agree to and have the votes to do it.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million plus voters cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility.

I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly back to those 545 people. When you fully look at the full picture there can be no doubt in your mind that the plain truth is when these 545 people exercise the full power of the federal government, the outcome that follows every time they vote is that they own 100% of that outcome, it’s all there.

We need to clean our house, this crap has got to stop, we need to hold our federal government accountable  for their votes, action, or anything we don’t like.

Trump’s Steel and Aluminum Tariffs

By

There are a couple of important economic lessons that the American people should learn. I’m going to title one “the seen and unseen” and the other “narrow well-defined large benefits versus widely dispersed small costs.” These lessons are applicable to a wide range of government behavior, but let’s look at just two examples.

Last week, President Donald Trump enacted high tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum. Why in the world would the U.S. steel and aluminum industries press the president to levy heavy tariffs? The answer is simple. Reducing the amounts of steel and aluminum that hit our shores enables American producers to charge higher prices. Thus, U.S. steel and aluminum producers will earn higher profits, hire more workers and pay them higher wages. They are the visible beneficiaries of Trump’s tariffs.

Obama Admin Actively Sabotaged Gun Background Check System.

By Cillian Zeal

Testimony by acting FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday revealed that the Obama administration removed the names of over 500,000 individuals with active arrest warrants from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, according to The Daily Wire.

The deletion of the names was first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who had originally pinned the change on the Trump administration.

“A little-noticed mandate from the Trump administration has cleared the way for some people with outstanding arrest warrants to purchase guns, a change that worries law enforcement officials who say it could be allowing dangerous criminals to arm themselves,” The Journal-Constitution reported last October.
