Marxist Liars

By Mike Adams
Natural News

S.510 is supposed to help the FDA so that it can clean up the food supply and protect all Americans from food-borne pathogens.

There’s just one problem with all this: It’s all a big lie.

Here are the ten biggest lies by Food Freedom that have been promoted about S.510 by the U.S. Congress, the food industry giants and the mainstream media:

Lie #1 – Most deaths from food poisoning are caused by fresh produce  (BS)

Lie #2 – Under S.510, the FDA would only recall products it knows to be contaminated (FDA Opinion only BS!)

Lie #3 – They didn’t tell you that nearly 70% of grocery store chickens are contaminated with salmonella every day (FEAR MONGERING-NOT EVEN MENTIONED IN THE BILL)

Lie #4 – S.510 will exclude and protect small farmers (BS!!!)

Wake up folks and Read Entire Article @ FoodFreedom!

Ways to Circumvent Congress and Quickly Enact Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

Folks, want to see what POS’s Obama and Co are? Well, here it is… To be implemented FY-10 FY-11.

The following are the opening sentences in the attached 11 page memo on how to circumvent Congress and relatively quickly enact amnesty for large numbers of illegal aliens (in groups of 50,000, 33,000, etc, etc. beginning in 3 – 12 months).

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can,
in the absence of Comprehensive Immigration Reform,
extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing new guidance and regulations,
exercising discretion with regard to parole-in-place,
deferred action and the issuance of Notices to Appear (NTA).

USCIS could reinterpret two 1990 General Counsel Opinions
regarding the ability of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) applicants
who entered the United States (U.S.) without inspection to adjust or change status.

This would enable thousands of individuals in TPS status to become lawful permanent residents.

Similarly, where non-TPS applicants have been deemed inadmissible
under section 212(a)(6)(AXi) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (“the Act”) for having entered without inspection,
USCIS could grant “parole-in-place” (PIP) in the exercise of discretion to create a basis for adjustment in the US.

Big Labor Unions are counting on more diabolical legislation to amass their Monopoly over Fire Fighters and Police

Union Thugs Go For Broke

What is this evil legislation? H.R. 413 and S. 1611.

Ultimately how will Big Labor affect the community and people where I live?

For many towns and cities this will be the last straw to break their financial back. Why? Big Labor plans on monopolizing all Firefighters and Law Enforcement Officers across the nation under Union Boss control; when a city or town refuses to “go along with the plan” the Federal Government (Obama and Co) will turn over your “First Responders” to Big Labor anyway. You are damned if you do and you are damned if you don’t.

Union Boss thugs are ready to make their move, seeing right now as their best chance in years to take control over fire fighters and law enforcement officers across the nation. Brutalizing cities and towns, large and small from east to west, north and south leaving no stone unturned union boss thugs intent is to guarantee citizens pay more in taxes and get less for their tax money in return.

The usefulness of Unions during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s is over. Since then unions have progressively negotiated contracts that have forced previously prosperous companies to reduce their workforce, reduce product output, and eventually bankrupt the company.

See, union boss thugs have already driven many American companies into bankruptcy, near collapse, or heading in the same direction.

Union thugs have preyed on our auto industry, our public school system and totally ruined state and federal government with unsustainable “Cadillac Health Care (under Obama)”, “Cadillac Benefit Plans” unusually high pay for blue collar type employment.

For example, take Detroit Michigan car manufacturing companies. Employees making around $75.00 per hour were offered reduced pay to be able to keep their jobs. In other words, you will not make as much money, however you WILL have a job and benefits. What did the Union thugs do? Said, Nope no way these people want to lose their jobs and have no income rather than compromise. Many employees that wanted to negotiate were threatened and harassed by Big Union Labor trolls.

Passing of HC Destruction, 20 Million jobs lost; Unemployment Skyrockets to 30%


blog post photo
Now, that America’s destruction has passed through skull duggary, illiicit acts, bribery and threats, America has a new burden.http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?QueryId=251. (Here’s a little ditty regarding unemployment stats from the Bureau of Labor, 2008=8.9% | 2009=14.3 | 2010=14.9 that is nearly a 100% increase in unemployment since your messiah was elected, but you smarty pants on here do the math).

Oh I know, it’s Bush’s fault anyway.  No, it is not.  It is your fault, Mr. Obama; “I won” you gloated.  Well brother you sure as stink did, so stop blaming everyone else and take charge.  Lead; you know that is what you are supposed to do.  Listen folks this man isn’t in charge of his own bodily functions let alone running this country.  Heck, he’s spent more tax dollars golfing before December than Bush spent in eight freakin’ years. 

Whew, Ok I’m back.  That soap box was just getting bigger and bigger but folks, here’s the problem. 
HR Includes the provision that student loans will be handled by the government.  In other words financial institutions (free market businesses) handling student loans now, will lose that business, hence cutting jobs by the millions or closing all together.  I predict by fall (season) of 2010 (20) Million more Americans will be without employment.3590
blog post photo

Oh, You think I’m talking about the Health Destruction burden?  No, no, no.  I’m talking about the unemployment burden and the ever increasing price to live now that HR 3590 has passed.  Huh?  What do ya’ mean Liberty?  We passed health care, not anything to do with unemployment.  Besides, Unemployment has stabilized at 14.8%

Please wake up and join the majority of Americans that have awoken from their Rip Van Winkle stupor.  The majority I speak of are not only republicans; they are republicans, democrats, independents, libertarians, conservatives, liberals, and every political persuasion you can imagine.  These are people that like myself realize the error or our ways and intend to do something to never let something like this happen again.  They are passionate about bringing about real change and ending government corruption and encroachment into our lives.

Guess what else?  Who is gonna pay for the health destruction?  That wealthy guy? NOPE! Me? NOPE! That Ultra Wealthy guy? NOPE!  YOU!!!!  Yes, you, me, the wealthy and ultra wealthy guy will be paying for it. How? Well let’s see.  Everything you and I eat, drink, wash, visit, our haircuts, oil change, gas, water, electricity, groceries.  Folks everything you need to live, the current price will increase oh say by around 300%.-gas bill
-water bill
-light bill
-groceries
-hair cut
-oil change
-tennis shoes
-day care
-car wash
-car/truck
-flights
-etc., etc., etc.
A few more things that are going to be taxed out of whack… ALL repair services on appliances and HVAC, roofing, & most construction materials. THEN on top of that, expect about a 3% national sales tax. Most people dont realize the hidden taxes in everything from cosmetics to appliances the manufacturers pay the taxes, then ‘hide’ the taxes in the cost for the consumer.
Yep, government enslavement straight up folks.

The Student loans… built into the bill is a bit of underhandedness to screw students… they are going to have to pay more for health coverage until they get their loans paid off… so that’s interest to the government and more money in the health care throw away fund.Why do you think Obama is doing all this? Why must he ensure more and more people lose their jobs?  I know! I know!  Because then they will be more dependent on the government.  Remember my previous post on top down societies. 

OH!  I almost forgot since I quit smoking nearly 19 years ago, are you guys ready to pay $20 bucks for a pack of cigs or around $120. for a carton?  Yep, it’s coming.  Remember what ‘ol Liberty said, she warned us. That ‘ol sassy Liberty; she warned us.

Now, why are all these products and services increasing exponentially???? Because ENERGY prices will continue to increase and cause products and services to increase simply because it cost more to make, transport, or do what we did before, you know Farm to Market costs a lot more these days. TAXES on everything you/me/us consume or use will increase.  Bottom line folks, taxes and government entitlement programs are always passed along to the consumer; one way or another not the big Rich guy as Obama knows your ears love to hear.  Nope folks it is YOU, who will pay.  I guess ya’ll were ready for a 300% increase in everything just like Sharpton (was it him?) that said, Americans voted for socialism because they voted for Barak Obama. Tee, he he he  OH!!!! Reminds me of another perfectly suitable cartoon for this paragraph.  Hmmm, here it goes.
blog post photo

Also, more and more business (not just financial institutions) will shrink in size or close, causing more unemployment, then there are less and less taxes being paid into the government on a regualar basis, making this ENTITLEMENT program UNSUSTAINABLE.

blog post photo

I predict Soup kitchens will expand to include the family, passage of this bill will create dependence upon the government (we already are by extending extending unemployment benefits) Not that I’m against that, but where will it end? and continue to stifle creativity as well as entrepreneurship.

Why do you think Obama is doing all this? Why must he ensure more and more people lose their jobs? I know! I know! Because then they will be more dependent on the government. Remember my previous post on top down societies. Yep, government enslavement straight up folks.

The Constitution Project

The Constitution Project by Foxwood at the Animal Farm

Do you believe the Constitution is the rule of law? Do you believe in the original intent of our founding fathers? Do you want to reform Congress? I’m not talking about reforming a Democratic Congress, but Congress.

If your answer is yes, we have to work together to make this happen. The goal in its entirety is to make all three branches of government respect and abide by the rule of law, know as the Constitution of the United States of America.

The most egregious of offenses against the Constitution is from Congress, so the focus will begin with the Legislative branch. It requires you to do some homework, because you have to know what you are talking about.

1. “We the people” need to read the Constitution. It is about four thousand, four hundred and forty (4440) words and will take less than an evening to do. Some may have to digest and research to understand what these wise men meant. Please try to understand it. The links below are an online Constitution and a pocket Constitution you can get free from The Heritage Foundation.
http://animal-farm.us/definitions/constitution
http://www.askheritage.org/Premium.aspx

Our main concern will be Article 1, Section 8 and the 10th Amendment.

2. Next, “We the people” must write to each of our Senators and our Representative to tell them that we have read the Constitution and we know what the “Powers of Congress” are and that we want them to abide by the “Powers of Congress” granted by the Constitution, and that anything not listed are reserved for the States and the people as addressed in the 10th Amendment. If they do not abide by the Constitution, they will be voted out of office.

If they do not know the “Powers of Congress”, a copy is attached, and they might spend some time reading and learning their duties. Most of these politicians know the Constitution, so this is really a poke at them.

This is to be sent to ALL of your Senators and Representative, Democratic and Republican. That would be a total of three letters, three emails, three faxes, and three phone calls. I would not suggest to send to politicians out of state, as they will look at addresses and usually only address letters from there district. That is not to say that if you have an address in another state, not to use it.

3. Below is a letter to send to your Reps and Senators. It is an example.

A. Please use the Representatives and Senators name.

B. This is an example letter. It will be more effective if you rewrite it in your own words.

C. This letter will be more effective if you send it United States Postal Service, and hand written. At least send it USPS if you don’t hand write it. I know some of you will not send a snail mail. Please do, it’s the most effective method. Please write the letter in your own words, PLEASE.

D. Send them an email. Please send a snail mail and an email, if possible. Also send a fax. Call them, but to read the letter will be too much for an intern to take time for.

D. Example letter:

[-start Letter-]
————————————————-

Dear [Senator or Representative] [your Senators or Representatives name],

“We the People” are tired of what is going on in Washington D.C. “We the People” would like to see you do your real job in Congress, and not make up jobs to keep yourselves busy and waste our tax money, not to mention making unconstitutional law.

Your job in Congress is established in the Constitution under Article 1, Section 8. There are only 18 items listed. Just in case you didn’t know, or have forgotten they will be listed at the end of this letter.

Where is it in the Constitution that Health Care, and Cap and Trade are mentioned? For that matter, where is Social Security, global-warming research, welfare, mass transit, food stamps, minimum wage, Medicaid, Medicare, and unemployment insurance?

You can point to “general welfare” in Article 1, Section 8, to account for your unlimited power you think you possess, but if you knew your history of the United States and the Constitution, you would know that “general welfare” did not mean the welfare of the people. Here is the 1828 edition of Noah Webster’s American Dictionary of the English Language, and how the word “welfare” was defined 40 years after it was written in the Constitution:

WEL´FARE, n. [well and fare, a good going; G. wohlfahrt; D. welvaard; Sw. valfart; Dan. velfærd.]
1. Exemption from misfortune, sickness, calamity or evil; the enjoyment of health and the common blessings of life; prosperity; happiness; applied to persons.
2. Exemption from any unusual evil or calamity; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government; applies to states.

Welfare did not have the meaning then as it does today. In the Constitution the word “welfare” is used in the context of states. The “welfare of the United States” does not mean the welfare of individuals, people, or citizens.

Here are a few words from our founding fathers on “general welfare” to set you straight:

“If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one….” — James Madison

“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.” –Thomas Jefferson

“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” — James Madison

“I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit.” — President Grover Cleveland

“I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” — James Madison

It is important that you know your history as well as the Constitution.

Please abide by these rules set forth by our Constitution of these Unites States of America or face removal from office next election.

Your Constituent,
[Your name]

P. S.
Here is your list of powers authorized to you by the Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, and some more words from our founding fathers.

1. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

2. To borrow money on the credit of the United States;

3. To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

4. To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

5. To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

6. To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

7. To establish Post Offices and Post Roads;

8. To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

9. To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

10. To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;

11. To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

12. To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

13. To provide and maintain a Navy;

14. To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

15. To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

16. To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

17. To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; And

18. To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

Under the Tenth Amendment: 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.

More words from our founding fathers:

“We still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping at the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised to furnish new pretenses for revenue and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without a tribute.” — Thomas Paine

“Those who would give up essential Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” — Ben Franklin

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” — James Madison

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power not longer susceptible of any definition. — Thomas Jefferson

“The greatest [calamity] which could befall [us would be] submission to a government of unlimited powers.” — Thomas Jefferson

“The powers of the federal government are enumerated; it can only operate in certain cases; it has legislative powers on defined and limited objects, beyond which it cannot extend its jurisdiction.” — James Madison

A Thank-You Note to the President

Dear Mr. President, I thought it an opportune time to write you and say thanks!

 I am a conservative, voted for McCain, and have voted straight conservative since reaching voting age. You are probably thinking, “Why is a conservative thanking me?” Well, I’ll tell you — and I am sorry if I gush:

-First, thank-you for going back on every single campaign promise you made!

-Second, thanks for not closing GITMO yet, what with so many terrorists already released, going back to the battle fields to kill our troops and all-another great decision — so far.

-Third, thank you for continuing wire-taps and electronic intrusions into communications between American Citizens and Foreign Nationals! The ACLU is not exactly loving you!

-Fourth, thank-you insulating the Democrats in Congress from any intrusion from across the aisle, and by doing so, taking the full blame for everything wrong with our country.

-Fifth, thank-you for further discrediting left wing race-mongering. Bringing racial profiling into the discussion of Skip Gates’ arrest. Socialism is the new “N” word-Brilliant!

-Sixth, Thanks for bringing the Chicago Machine to the Department of Education. That should work out well for you. Voucher anyone?

-Seventh, thank-you for telling us that you advocate a single payer system.

Can you say sound bites?  abwhaaaaa

Like Chris Matthews, I too get a chill up my leg every time you speak to the masses. When you turn on TOTUS and regurgitate speeches penned for you by your cabal of radicals, looking left and right in that hypnotic rhythm, you remind the electorate of the colossal mistake they made last November. A mistake that will haunt them all for the next three years, as if they all had bodies hidden in their crawl-spaces.

So, thank you Mr. President! From the bottom of my heart. You are the best, worst president we ever had!

National Debt for Your Children’s, childrens’, childrens’, childrens’ courtesy Obama & Company

 

 This post is from Political Math who demonstrates Political and Economic Information through Visualization and Other Math-y Things

 In this video, I wanted to take a close look at the historical nature of the US debt. Unfortunately, I couldn’t say all I wanted to say or it would have been three times as long and I would have bored myself to death trying to make it.

 
 

First of all, I would like to state that I am not trying to defend President Bush’s spending. I personally think Bush was spending far too much. My preference would be to reduce the debt… or at least stay put and let inflation take it’s toll on the debt. My point in this video is that it is the most absurd hypocrisy for someone to complain about how much Bush spent and then yawn when Obama is spending so much more.

A close look at the numbers reveals that this isn’t even a “We’re in a recession, we have to spend that money” issue. Obama’s high deficit plans continue long after the recession is projected to end.

Next, I want to give some pointers to the data I used and then I want to clear up some of the muddier issues in the video.

This video uses the US Treasury’s data on the national debt for the debt numbers and adjusts each year for inflation using the inflation numbers on this site.

In order to understand where the debt would be in 2016, I used the the President’s estimate in his latest budget proposal. These numbers are generally accepted to be optimistic (the Congressional Budget Office has them pegged at much higher), but I didn’t want to put the president at an unfair advantage.

Actually (and I would do this over again if I could) I calculated the future debt with regards to inflation (I assumed about 1.0% inflation per year) so that President Obama is going slower than if I just used his own numbers. I tried to bend the numbers to Obama’s advantage,  not because I agree with him, but so that there is no room for the accusation of number fudging.

In retrospect, I think it would have been more fair to assume that the President’s team had already assumed the inflation calculation and that their 2016 debt data was calculated in 2016 money and not 2008 money.

So that’s all about the calculations… now I’d like to make a note about some other decisions I made. I thought it was important to keep in mind which party held Congress. The reason is because it is actually more accurate to say

“Under President So-and-so, the debt increased by X amount”

due to the fact that the president only proposes the budget and must work with Congress in order to get a budget passed.

In 1994, we voted in a Congress that was remarkably fiscally conservative… so much so that they fought a protracted battle with President Clinton in 1995  trying desperately to get him to agree to a lower budget. The press ripped the Republican Congress (particularly Newt Gingrich) to shreds over it and they (the Republicans) ended up conceeding the matter.

On the other side of things, Reagan tried to pass smaller budgets, but the House of Representitives was heavily Democratic and added to his proposed budget until he refused to sign, leading to another government shutdown.

Long story short, the budget is a combined effort of what the president proposes and what the Congress decides, so I thought it was only fair to mention both sides of the equation once the debt really started increasing drastically. This, of course, is only more damning to Bush and Obama, since both of them have (or had) a situation in which their party is in complete control of the government.
