November is Coming

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 20, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Tomorrow will bring a health care bill vote, and Nancy Pelosi continues to show her true pro-abortion colors. She continues to reveal that she has no interest in the will of the people who have overwhelmingly indicated that we do not want government between us and our doctors. Today she rejected the Stupak abortion solution. Pelosi has no respect for pro-life anybody–not the unborn, not the American people, and not even the colleagues in her own party.

And we already know where President Obama stands on the issue of life. He believes the “when does life begin?” question is “above [his] pay grade.” He didn’t even vote to provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. Sick! If he can’t do right by a defenseless newborn, what in the world do you expect he’ll do with you?

These are the people we want in charge of our health care?! God, help us.

According to the Washington Post:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Saturday rejected an offer to hold a separate vote on abortion provisions in the sweeping health-care legislation, setting the stage for the final talks with the last Democratic holdouts.

Pelosi told reporters that she rejected the solution offered by Rep. Bart Stupak (Mich.), the leading antiabortion Democrat who proposed passing separate, strict language that would clarify that no federal funds in the proposed legislation could go toward abortion coverage.

Asked if a vote was coming, Pelosi declared no extra votes would be held to appease antiabortion Democrats or liberals still hopeful for adding their favored causes. “Not on abortion, not on public option, not on single payer, not on anything,” Pelosi said. She later added, “The bill is the bill.”

Democrats are close to securing the 216 votes needed for a majority when the vote is held Sunday evening, but the last bloc of holdouts are antiabortion Democrats.

Read the rest here.

Governor Palin has been fighting on behalf of the American people, imploring us to get involved and do everything we can to stop a government takeover of health care.

Earlier today she tweeted:

Shocking new questions re:whether military healthcare plans r protected under Obamacare.How will underpaid troops afford their own purchase?

She followed that up with a link to that very story. Click here to read it.

November is coming, as the governor shared yesterday in her Facebook note, the same note where she asked us to sign the November is Coming petition to let Congress know we mean business. Click here to do so.

In no uncertain terms, tell them:

Dear Member of Congress:

Your vote isn’t the only one that counts. November is coming and you can’t hide from the voters. Corrupt backroom deals are driving a government takeover of our health care, and I don’t like it. If you vote YES on the health care bill, I will vote NO on you in the next election.

Sarah Palin Proclaims: With a Stiff Spine America Must Stand Against Obamacare

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 15, 2010

Barack Obama is leading his party to certain disaster. He and his party have really gone off the deep end. The march toward complete tyranny in America must be stopped.

Look, let’s make this simple. America has spoken, for a year now, America has spoken. They have said not no, but HELL NO(!) to ObamaCare. Americans rose up at town hall meetings. Americans formed both the Tea Party and 912 Project. Millions marched on Washington.

Fully 3/4 of Americans say they want no part of what Obama and his tyrannical Congress are selling, and yet, Obama is still demanding his corrupt Congress pass this unconstitutional disaster.

Obama came into office with a majority in both Houses, a “super majority” actually, as his Senate was filibuster proof. Despite the caterwauling from democrats that they were being obstructed by those mean old Republicans, truth is, the ObamaCare is such a crap sandwich, even some democrats wanted absolutely nothing to do with it.

This is why we have seen backroom deals, like the Cornhusker Kickback and the Louisiana Purchase. All sorts of arm twisting behind the scenes. Obama may have illegally offered a Congressman’s brother a judgeship to get a vote out of the guy!

Instead of passing this mess though, Obama has fail, and America has only spoken louder and louder, saying HELL NO!

Obama lost his “super majority” in Congress when the bluest of blue states in the nation rejected the democrat looking to fill “Teddy Kennedy’s seat” and elected Scott Brown, whose main selling point, to many, was he was a vote against ObamaCare!

So, unable to move forward, Obama and his minions in Congress looked to illegally use “reconciliation” over in the Senate, to shove this down America’s throat. Under this scenario, the House would have to vote on and pass the Senate bill, as is, send it back to the Senate, and the Senate would shove it through, and send it to Obama.

The Senate parliamentarian put up several road blocks to this, and a number of democrats in the House are now having serious issues, including federal funding of abortions, and well, the thought of using a questionable procedure to pass a wildly unpopular bill.

We wrote about Bart Stupak’s courageous stand. We also wrote that democrats were telling Stupak they wanted to fund abortions, and if they took funding out, more babies would be born, and it would cost the government more money! That is breathtakingly evil. You can read more here.

Now here’s where we are at. While reconciliation, for these purposes, is illegal, the democrats don’t care, and still want to use it. But to do it, the House has to pass the Senate Bill, as is, with abortion funding, and other unsavory items that many members of the House oppose. Now these members are being told “trust us, we’ll fix all of that later.” To their credit, they aren’t buying that load of manure. They will not vote for ObamaCare, and ObamaCare will not pass the House.

So, here’s the latest. As the House and Senate can make up their own rules, to a certain extent, the House has drafted a rule called, I kid you not, the “Slaughter Rule.” This rule basically says Speaker Pelosi can “deem” the legislation passed, without even having a vote! This, of course is dangerous, and in direct violation of the Constitution, not that these people care.

Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on the journal of each House respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.

Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill.

—Article I Section 7 United States Constitution.

I shouldn’t have to explain just how dangerous this is to the Republic. This bit of tyranny along with the Senate’s new found love for “reconciliation” will forever change America. If the democrats pull this off, it’s over. There will be nothing to stop them from using it to pass anything. We will basically become a dictatorship, lead by the most maniacal psychopaths to ever hold office.

Sarah Palin has asked all Americans to stand strong against this great evil:

With a Stiff Spine America Must Stand Against Obamacare

If Senator Reid, Speaker Pelosi, and President Obama get their way, soon our country will be changed forever. Using every partisan parliamentary trick in the book (including some they invented just last week), Washington’s Left intends to ram through their takeover of our health care system regardless of the consequences.

The latest twists and turns in the Obamacare drama seem almost surreal. One minute the Democrat leadership is trying to amend a bill before the president has even signed it into law, and the next minute they’re trying to draft a new rule that will allow the House to “deem” a bill passed without actually voting on it! They’re determined to use the Senate reconciliation process as a parliamentary trick to bypass the regular voting procedure (and by the way, to add insult to injury, they’re now going to ram through federalization of America’s student loan industry with this same reconciliation vote). Is there any other wildly unpopular legislation they’d also like to sneak in? Perhaps the anti-energy-independence policy “Cap and Tax” (aka Cap and Trade) is next?

And make no mistake, the Obamacare bill is wildly unpopular. The Democrats’ own pollsters warn of an “unmitigated disaster” for them in November if they don’t abandon their plan and start over with real incremental health care reform. Incredibly, at this point, they don’t seem to care.

Speaker Pelosi thinks Congress must pass the bill so that the American people can then “find out what’s in it.” We know what’s in it. We don’t want it. The Democrats will take short-term electoral losses in exchange for long-term radical change of the United States of America. They assume we’ll come to accept this new intrusion of government once we’re stuck with it. That’s why we can’t concede this battle. Americans must stiffen our spines and stand against this action that violates the will of the people with centralized government mandates and crippling costs.

Republicans in Congress are holding the line, and some Democrats are standing with them. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) said he won’t vote for the Senate bill if federal funding of abortion is included. Last Friday, he told National Review Online that some Democrats have told him that if abortions aren’t covered in Obamacare then “more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more…Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America?

As I wrote in my first post on this topic, human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion. Government health care will not reduce the cost of medical care; it will simply refuse to pay it. And who will get left behind when they have to ration care to save money?

Please ask yourself: who will be left behind? And who will decide – what kind of panel will decide – who receives the health care that government will obviously have to ration?

There’s a great deal of pressure being put on Stupak’s pro-life Democrats. They’re already dwindling in number. Their party is threatening them, and so are powerful SEIU labor union bosses.

The Democrats respecting the sanctity of life have every incentive to buckle under the pressure, so they need to know that we’ll support them if they do the right thing and vote no on Obamacare.

Please take the time to get involved in the debate this week. There are many grassroots efforts under way. There will be a march on Washington on Tuesday, March 16th. Rep. Michele Bachmann has a “Kill the Bill” online petition that you can sign here. Most importantly, contact members of Congress and offer your support if they do the right thing.

We know we’ll beat them at the ballot box, but we have to kill this bill before November. This is the final push. We must stand up and stand together one last time to insist on true market-oriented, patient-centered health care reform that reflects America’s values and the will of the people.

– Sarah Palin

For their part, democrat party leadership is working overtime to intimidate House members into submission. Congressman Chris Van Hollen, assistant to Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi sent out a memo warning members not to speak of their unconstitutional power grab.

Van Hollen shrugs this tyrannical behavior off as “inside baseball” and goes on to say: “People who try and start arguments about process on this are almost always against the actual policy substance too, often times for purely political reasons.”

Amazingly arrogant, amazingly evil.

Brad Darling over at Red State breaks this entire situation down very well in his must read piece, which you can do here.

Also from Red State, is almost an apocalyptic prediction should Congress continue on this path:

Now, let’s talk about consequences.

The American public was at first peeved about this government power grab, leading to wildly entertaining August recesses for congressional Democrats. As the Dems shoved non-matching bills through House and Senate, America got positively miffed. Witness McDonnell, Christie, and Brown.

Now America is flat irritated. And if the Dems try sporting this blatant middle finger at the Constitution and America, we will all see what happens when America is finally angry. Like Dan Perrin, I think Democrats will back down before doing this. But we’ve both underestimated their stupidity several times in this process. Nothing’s a safe bet anymore.

Before this, Democrats were already going to lose HUGE in November. There are more House Democrats retiring in “safe” districts than there are Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys in prison. But if they try this stunt, the ensuing electoral revolt will be epic and irreversible, resulting in a Democrat Party crippled so irredeemably that I predict a new center-left party will emerge in the next 10 years, attempting to shed the stench of scandal and disrepute that will be permanently connected to the Democrats. Most likely the partisan press will accelerate their own death spiral as they are unwilling to speak ill of the Democrats.

But that is November. What will happen in March?

Six things I can think of, the first three within days. I couldn’t say what order, because things will move pretty quickly. So I list them how my mind sorts them.

1. The Supreme Court will strike it down within days.

I don’t remember which of the 3 authors I cited said this (or maybe I heard it on the radio), so I don’t know who to cite. But every American has standing here, due to the exceedingly far reach of the Health Care Takeover bill. Somebody will sue. I predict GOP members of Congress will, and it will go straight to the Supreme Court. They will strike down the whole caboodle, and they will do it almost immediately. Probably 6-3, with Breyer and Kennedy voting with the originalists. Their ruling is very likely to include language extremely damning of the behavior of Democrats.

2. Numerous states will declare statutorily under the 10th Amendment that this law will be unenforceable within their borders.

I’m guessing 20 states. The move has been afoot for awhile anyway, and this blatant flouting of the Constitution will trigger the America-loving, freedom-loving instincts into bold (if rash) action. And while they’re at it, they’re going to say the same thing about everything emanating from the EPA.

3. There will be public anti-government outrage so great that it will boil into violence.

I do not condone this; it will be ugly and more than a little scary. Lest I give anybody fresh ideas, I will not expound upon it other than to say it will be directed, not generalized — directed at objects, property, and symbols of government, not at people. Although those who voted for this Slaughter Rule would be wise to perhaps hang around in Washington for awhile.

4. (Even more) new candidates opposing incumbent Democrats will come out of the woodwork.

Many already have, but many good ones have considered, then declined. Many of those will change their minds, even in blue states. And new ones will pop up like dandelions. And a whole bunch of them will win. The leftist partisan national media currently think Republicans might, juuuuuuuust MIGHT, get 40 seats and the House back. Idiots. It was already going to be 80 and 8. But after this stunt, it might be 120 and 14. This is what happens when the entire center turns on a party.

5. State AGs will bring charges against sitting Congressmen for whatever they can plausibly pin on them.

Sedition is the actual crime (IMHO), and that’s a federal charge. But no USA will touch this, since they work for the president. Because members of Congress cannot be recalled, citizens will be thirsting for vengeance. Very loudly. State AG’s will be chomping at the bits to exact SOME form of payback, encouraged (or pushed) by their citizenry. Things like corruption, conspiracy, bribery, racketeering, tax fraud, and so on, will be easy indictments. As the last few months have shown, congressional Democrats have been so thoroughly corrupt for so long, nobody will even have to trump up anything.

6. Republicans will shut down business in Congress until January 5.

Then it will REALLY get fun.

Democrats will lose the country days after they pull the Slaughter Rule. They’ll have their illegal law both flouted and overruled, their members will be subject to investigations and indictments, and not a single item of interest will be signed into law, nor will any appointment be approved, before January 5, when a hundred or more of them leave Washington for good.

You can read all of this great analysis here.

I know, at this point, you are asking yourself why Obama, Pelosi, and Reid will risk it all to pass this wildly unpoular bill. Why are these loons willing to not only risk the ire of the Supreme Court, but possible violence from the American people, and maybe even civil war?

BTW, never forget our founding fathers fought a revolution, against the most powerful nation on earth, over this sort of nonsense.

Back in 1961 Ronald Reagan reminded us what it is all about. Progressives have been trying to pass some sort of government run health care into law for 100 years. The reason being, once passed, government gains complete and total control over the lives of it’s citizens.

This is something progressives desperately desire. These egomaniacal loons honestly believe they are smarter than you are, and know far better what is good for you, than you do. They sincerely believe you are too stupid to function on your own, and they must guide your every action with a command and control type of government, that literally plays a role in every action you may take.

Think about all of the insane rules that have been enacted, for your own good, and how many more these evil people wish to enact. It will all be possible if they get their foot in the door through ObamaCare, especially if they get away with this coup d’état they are now attempting.

I leave you with these words of wisdom from the great Renaldus Magnus:

Obama’s Stunning Admission

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 30, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

In an article for Real Clear Politics, Tom Bevan points out something that seems to have gone unnoticed by most. He calls it “Obama’s Stunning Admission.”

Bevan quotes the president during his appearance at the House Republican retreat:

The last thing I will say, though — let me say this about health care and the health care debate, because I think it also bears on a whole lot of other issues. If you look at the package that we’ve presented — and there’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating. For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge. [emphasis added]

Well, isn’t that interesting? Beval distills this for us to mean:

If we take this statement at face value, President Obama is admitting the the health care bills passed by either the House or Senate (or both) contained provisions which were “snuck in” – presumably by Democratic members and perhaps on behalf of certain lobbyists – that would have in fact prevented people from keeping their current insurance and/or choosing the doctor they want.

Read the entire article here.

All this time later, after calling Republicans out–after calling Governor Palin out–is President Obama quietly admitting that those who were calling him out were right all along?

In her Facebook note, “Troubling Questions Remain About Obama’s Health Care Plan,” Governor Palin wrote:

The president is busy assuring us that we can keep our private insurance plans, but common sense (and basic economics) tells us otherwise.

In Governor Palin’s “Response to the White House,” she stated:

I’m pleased that the White House is finally responding to Republican health care ideas instead of pretending they don’t exist.[1] But in doing so President Obama should follow his own sound advice and avoid making “wild misrepresentations”.[2] Medicare vouchers would give everyone on Medicare the chance to decide for themselves which health plan to use, rather than leave that decision to government bureaucrats. Such proposals are the kind of health care reform that Republicans stand for: market-oriented, patient-centered, and result-driven.

You’ll recall that Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued in September:

Health insurance reform opponents continue to spread myths about components of America’s Affordable Health Choices Act. Their efforts to scare seniors have spared no myth, no method and no misrepresentation. It has gotten so bad, the Chicago Tribune’s The Swamp blog wrote, “In political circles, there is a term for the tactic” Republicans are using to frighten seniors about the effects of health insurance reform: “Medi-scare.” According to The Swamp, Republicans are “capitalizing on fears that Medicare will be undermined… and that the government will force ‘end-of-life’ decisions… It’s one rhetorical stop short of warning of the “death panels” that Republican Sarah Palin has spoken of….”

[…]

Myth: Health care reform is a government takeover.

Fact: Under this bill, there is no government takeover of health care. Every American will still be able to choose your own doctor and health insurance plan— and make care decisions with that doctor. The House bill builds on the current system of private health insurance. Indeed, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, private insurance coverage will expand by 16 million under the House reform bill. CBO projects that only a total of about 11 million – or 3 percent of Americans – would choose to enroll in a newly-formed public health insurance plan.

So it wasn’t a myth after all, Speaker?

You’ll also recall Pelosi rushing through the House a late-night health care vote, to which the governor wrote:

Despite Americans’ decisive message last Tuesday that they reject the troubling path this country has been taking, Speaker Pelosi has broken her own promises of transparency to ram a health “care” bill through the House of Representatives just before midnight. Why did she push the 2,000 page bill this weekend? Was she perhaps afraid to give her peers and the constituents for whom she works the chance to actually read this monstrous bill carefully, if at all? Was she concerned that Americans might really digest the details of a bill that the Wall Street Journal has called “the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced”?

This out-of-control bureaucratic mess will be disastrous for our economy, our small businesses, and our personal liberty. It will slam businesses at a time when we are at double-digit unemployment rates – the highest we’ve seen in a quarter of a century. This massive new bureaucracy will cost us and our children money we don’t have. It will rob Americans of more of our freedom and further hamper the free market.

Make no mistake: we’re on course to have government commandeer one-sixth of our economy. The people who gave us Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac now want to run our health care. Think about that.

So after all the warnings Governor Palin gave, and all the denying, name-calling, and arrogance of the Obama administration, President Obama makes the stunning admission that they had, in fact, “snuck in” some of the same things they so passionately refuted?

I agree with Governor Palin: “Think about that.”

I feel my inner Joe Wilson coming on.

Sarah Palin Rips Into Congress Over War Tax

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 25, 2009

Of all of the insanity that has come out of our current democrat/communist congress, this has to really take the cake. These dangerous loons have been spending us into oblivion for quite some time. The spending has been beyond irresponsible, it borders on treason.

This is a bi-partisan effort, by the way. Both parties are out of control, but the democrat/communist party is now out there where the busses don’t run.

We all know the far left loons that infect Congress, and the nation as a whole, hate our military, despise it, actually. The left’s contempt for our military is palpable, has been forever. Now they are really letting it all hang out, going for broke.

Congress is now saying they want to add a “war surtax” to everyone’s tax bill to pay for our national security. They are now whining that the cost of war is hurting their march toward turning America into a communist hell hole.

In a bit of political grandstanding Congressman David Obey (D/C-Wisc.), the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, warned that if President Barack Obama decides to send additional troops to Afghanistan, it should be funded with the new tax.

Don’t you just love how democrat/communists want to tax EVERYTHING?

Obie went on to say this:

“If we don’t pay for it, then the cost of the Afghan war will wipe out every other initiative that we have to try to rebuild our own economy,” he said. “I’m going to be fighting to get whatever they do paid for.”

That’s pretty rich! Just what are they doing to rebuild our economy? I see nothing.

Sarah weighed in on this last night:

Congress Never Ceases to Amaze

Really? A tax on national defense? I hear liberal Congressional proposals and I, like most Americans, wonder if they’re serious. We’re going to put a price tag on security?

With Congress and President Obama spending money on everything at breakneck speed, it’s interesting that they are only now getting nervous about spending – but only when it comes to providing the necessary funds to complete our mission in Afghanistan. They don’t need a new “war tax” to fund a strategy for victory in the war zone. They simply need to prioritize our money appropriately.

I find it telling that the Pelosi-Reid Congress is only cost-conscious when it comes to our national defense. Scary. Nonsensical. Unacceptable.

– Sarah Palin

I know most in Congress these days have either never read the Constitution, or have chose to ignore it, but the American people haven’t. Having read our Constitution front to back, I can tell you that as far as spending, and responsibilities go, national defense and funding for it, is talked about frequently. In fact, it’s one of the few responsibilities of the federal government that is actually, and explicitly, spelled out!

In other words, constitutionally, Congress has no authority to do things like take over our health care, private businesses, or even schools, but they are directed to defend the nation and the Constitution.

So here is where we are at. We have a Congress that is trying to fundamentally change America, take her in a direction that an overwhelming number of Americans, a super majority, do not want to go.

Congress has spent more money since Barack Obama has been in office than was spent in the previous 233 years of our nation’s existence, combined. From George Washington, to George W Bush, Obama and his thug Congress has spent more than all of the other 43 Presidents, combined.

And yet, with all of the trillions of dollars spent on social engineering, and “change,” these evil little devils can’t seem to find the money to pay for the ONE THING they are actually REQUIRED to pay for constitutionally!

I think it’s well past the time we continue to give these people the benefit of the doubt. Congress is out of control, and their refusal to listen to the American people is bordering on treason. We must hold these thieves, these scoundrels, accountable.

We must stop Congress from throwing our money away on social engineering and programs like their so-called “heath care reform” that will collapse our economy and send America into bankruptcy. We must demand that Congress stop spending and start cutting the fat.

Sarah speaks more about these issues and other issues regarding Barack Obama’s inability to take care of our troops, and perform his duties as Commander-in-Chief to our armed forces in an interview with Greta. There is some serious red meat here, well worth watching every segment:

Sarah Palin: Pelosi “Health Plan” Should Be DOA

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 12, 2009

The ‘Cuda is en fuego this morning, and as always, is spot on. It’s truly hard to add to this:

Pelosi “Health Plan” Should Be DOA

Today at 10:40am

We need to be vigilant in investigating the ramifications of the Pelosi Health Care Bill. Some provisions sound so outrageous as to be considered impossible to fathom, but they’re right there in the bill in black and white. For instance, page 297 of the bill explains the punishment for not purchasing government mandated health insurance. If you don’t buy what the government considers “acceptable health care coverage,” you’re going to be hit with a tax of at least 2.5% of your income. And if you don’t pay that new tax, you could be fined as much as $250,000 and sentenced to up to five years in prison.

But here’s the thing: they have to make the penalty for opting out very harsh in order to force us to buy coverage. The only way to keep this government run health care plan afloat is for everyone to buy into it – especially young and healthy people. That means that they will have to penalize citizens if we choose not to buy a plan that will cost a minimum of about $15,000 per family per year.

The bill that came out of the Senate last month – the Baucus Bill – does just the opposite. It calls for a much lighter penalty ($750 maximum) for people who don’t buy government approved health coverage, making it cheaper to pay the fine than to pay for the coverage. (And with a recession on, who can blame families for not wanting to pay $15,000 for a government mandated health care plan?)

But here’s the kicker: the bill also forces insurance companies to cover everyone, regardless of pre-existing conditions. Think about what that means. A lot of people – especially young and healthy people – will just pay the penalty instead of purchasing coverage because they’ll figure that it’ll always be there if they get sick, as government has promised. That’s what will happen, and when it does it will totally undermine the very concept of “insurance” – which is basically a group of people pooling their resources over time to cover themselves for a rainy day, paying while they’re healthy so that they’re covered when they’re sick. Those who are healthy now pay for those who are sick. If your insurance pool only contains sick people, it’s a bust. And that’s what this government plan will be. Without all of those young and healthy people paying into the pool and defraying the costs, the government will have to pony up more and more money, and who knows how long the whole crazy plan will last before it goes broke – and our country with it!

That’s where we are with this bureaucratic mess: either the government penalizes people so harshly that they could be hit with huge taxes and even possible jail time, or the government makes the penalty a slap on the wrist and undermines the plan from the get-go. Forcing individuals to buy health insurance seems unconstitutional, yet Congress wants to foist it on us anyway. Proponents of government controlled health care will say, “But we’re made to buy car insurance and home insurance, what’s the difference with health insurance?” It’s apples and oranges. Auto insurance is a state law requirement, and people can always choose not to drive. Banks might require you to have home owner’s insurance, but again, you choose to own a home, just as you choose to drive. You have no choice at all when it comes to this federal government health care insurance mandate.

There are other ways to reform health care without violating our Constitution and our personal liberties. Let’s get back to discussing market-driven, patient-centered, result-driven solutions, like, for example, allowing people to purchase insurance across state lines, tackling existing government waste and fraud, and reforming medical malpractice laws (tort reform) to stop unwarranted lawsuits that force doctors to order unnecessary procedures just to cover themselves.

Please let your Senators know that the Pelosi Bill should be dead on arrival. Once we go down this big government path, it will be virtually impossible to reverse course. Let’s fight for the reform that makes sense for Americans before it’s too late.

– Sarah Palin

The unconstitutionality of forcing someone to buy something they don’t want is what is so very striking. It speaks to how truly dangerous the democrat/communists are. It proves they don’t give a damn about personal rights, freedom, or liberty. This bill is written proof that the democrat/communist party stands solely for tyranny, solely for evil.

The language and penalties in the 2000 plus page monstrosity make it very clear that Obama and his democrat/communist party have more in common with King George, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, and Chavez, than with Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Paine, and Franklin.

Two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($250,000) plus five years in prison for not buying “government approved” health care. Are you kidding me?

We fought a Revolution over a lot less stupidity than this!

It’s time for all good Americans to get off the couch and take to the streets. It is time to defeat this evil once and for all. It is time to stop this bill dead in it’s tracks.

Once this bill is stopped we must have a second Revolution, a Conservative Revolution!

From the smallest local office, to the presidency, we need to make sure we have good, solid Conservative leaders running, and winning. It is everyone’s duty to get involved and make this happen. Everyone simply must, to save the nation from sure destruction from within.

The 2010 elections are around the corner. We must work hard to elect Conservatives in every position. “Progressives” must be defeated in every case, no matter of the party. We must remove the enablers, the RINOs, the DIABLOs the “progressive” Republicans. They are no better than the democrat/communists, as they either vote with them, or put up such token resistence to their illegal and unconstitutional plans, as to be worthless.

We need fighters, patriots who will fight this evil with their dying breath!

We need strong leaders like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, and Jim DeMint, who, by the way, has introduced a bill that would set term limits for Congress.


As the Great Renaldus Magnus would say, this is not the time for pale pastels, this is the time for bold colors, for bold leadership. This is the time for YOU to get into the fight!

I’m going to leave you with this video that Sarah sent out late last night from the CF&P Foundation. In it Eline van den Broek warns America of the perils of European style socialized medicine. This is an eye opener, and really needs to go viral.

Defiant Sarah Palin: The Pelosi Bill Was Rammed Through on Saturday, But Sunday’s Coming

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 8, 2009

You can literally feel the heat as you read these words from Sarah Palin. This is a defiant woman who is on record saying: “Politically, if I die, I die, but I won’t sit down, and I won’t shut up!” Certainly the woman known as Sarahcuda by her championship basketball teammates is not sitting down, and not shutting up.

These are terrible times, times that try men’s souls. Our economy is crashing around us, unemployment has now reached levels not seen since the aftermath of the failed Carter presidency. We’ve just had a domestic terrorist attack on the largest military base in the world, and what does our “commander-in-chief” concern himself with? The destruction of America as we know it, that’s what!

This Chicago street thug communist “community organizer” has America on a path of certain destruction. Economic and social destruction. His communistic plans to change America from a Constitutional Republic to a communist dictatorship are well on their way. Once Obama and his democrat/communist party gain control of our health care system, it’s all over. They will have complete and total control of America. Congress itself will became irrelevant as everything will be run from the White House by Czars and other unelected, unconstitutional usurpers.

Knowing this, Sarah has sent out another message, not only to Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the communist stooges, but to America. This is your wake up call people. What are you prepared to do?

From Sarahcuda:

The Pelosi Bill Was Rammed Through on Saturday, But Sunday’s Coming

Today at 12:34am

We’ve got to hold on to hope, and we’ve got to fight hard because Congressional action tonight just put America on a path toward an unrecognizable country.

The same government leaders that got us into the mortgage business and the car business are now getting us into the health care business.

Despite Americans’ decisive message last Tuesday that they reject the troubling path this country has been taking, Speaker Pelosi has broken her own promises of transparency to ram a health “care” bill through the House of Representatives just before midnight. Why did she push the 2,000 page bill this weekend? Was she perhaps afraid to give her peers and the constituents for whom she works the chance to actually read this monstrous bill carefully, if at all? Was she concerned that Americans might really digest the details of a bill that the Wall Street Journal has called “the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced”?

This out-of-control bureaucratic mess will be disastrous for our economy, our small businesses, and our personal liberty. It will slam businesses at a time when we are at double-digit unemployment rates – the highest we’ve seen in a quarter of a century. This massive new bureaucracy will cost us and our children money we don’t have. It will rob Americans of more of our freedom and further hamper the free market.

Make no mistake: we’re on course to have government commandeer one-sixth of our economy. The people who gave us Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac now want to run our health care. Think about that.

All of us who value the sanctity of life are grateful for the success of the pro-life majority in the House this evening in its battle against federal funding of abortion in this bill, but it’s ironic because we were promised that abortion wasn’t covered in the bill to begin with. Our healthy distrust of these government leaders made us look deeper into the bill because unfortunately we knew better than to trust what they were saying. The victory tonight to amend the bill and eliminate that federal funding for abortion was great – because abortion is not health care. Now we can only hope that Rep. Stupak’s amendment will hold in the final bill, though the Democratic leadership has already refused to promise that it won’t be scrapped later.

We had been told there were no “death panels” in the bill either. But look closely at the provision mandating bureaucratic panels that will be calling the shots regarding who will receive government health care.

Look closely at provisions addressing illegal aliens’ health care coverage too.

Those of us who love freedom and believe in open and transparent government can only be dismayed by midnight action on a Saturday. Speaker Pelosi’s promise that Americans would have 72 hours to read the final bill before the vote was just another one of the D.C. establishment’s too-common political ploys. It’s broken promises like this that turn people off to politics and leave them disillusioned about the future of their country.

But despite this late-night maneuvering, many of us were paying close attention tonight. We’ll keep paying close attention. We need to let our legislators in Washington know that they still represent us, and that the majority of Americans are not in favor of the “reform” they are pushing. After all, this is still a country “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” We will make our voices heard. It’s on to the Senate now. Our legislators can listen now, or they can hear us in 2010. It’s their choice.

– Sarah Palin

In case you wonder how your “president” feels about you, Kathryn Jean Lopez, from National Review Online, has this little jewel:

The President of the United States Said That?

President Obama, in his pitch to Democrats on the Hill today (from the New York Times):

Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit Democratic voters and it will encourage the extremists.

Amazing, huh? I hate to tell this guy, but he and his thugs are the extremists.

Again, I have to ask: What are you prepared to do? This “president,” this Government, is clearly the enemy of the people. The “president” and his party of maniacal, power mad communists must be stopped at all costs. They clearly do not care what the American people want, or think.

Nearly two million people marched on Washington on September 12. This past Thursday between 30 and 45,000 patriots held a rally on the Capitol steps hosted by Michelle Bachmann and other Conservatives. These patriots actually went into the congressional office buildings and confronted members of Congress, to seemingly no effect.

So where do we go from here? What are you personally prepared to do?

I know we all must do our part. We can no longer sit by and allow what amounts to a coup d’etat to continue.

I’m reminded of these words from the greatest political document ever written:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Sarah Palin’s Urgent Message

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 7, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Today is a very important day in our nation. Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing her liberal health care reform agenda which the majority of Americans have already said they don’t want. While everyone will agree that some type of reform is beneficial, a government take-over is not the answer. Who in their right minds would want bureaucracy getting between them and their doctors?

Over the past few months, we the people have voiced opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions, coverage of illegal aliens, and “death panels.” So what response have President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and other far Left pushers given? They’ve lied to the American people about what’s in the Bill and have attempted to ram it through.

Sarah Palin has given herself to battling the horrors of this Bill for months, refusing to be silenced in spite of President Obama, members of his administration, and many in the mainstream media going on the attack in a desperate attempt to discredit her. The last thing they wanted was someone of her influence to get the word out to the people. But she did–and she still is.

Today she issued a message to the American people via Facebook. It says in part:

Speaker Pelosi: Your Blue Dogs are Howling

I had a message for Speaker Pelosi in a speech I gave last night for the Wisconsin Right to Life – “please, please don’t break the ‘transparency promise’ by prohibiting at least a vote of your colleagues on funding abortion-on-demand.”

Speaker Pelosi has already broken many promises thus far in this “reform” exercise. She promised that this would be a bi-partisan effort, but the bill she’s pushing isn’t bi-partisan. She promised that the final version of the bill would be posted online 72 hours before it comes to a vote so that the American people could clearly see what’s in it and how we will pay for it. But she broke that promise too when she decided to rush the bill to a vote this weekend.

Oh My….Barack Obama Caught Astroturfing!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 12, 2009

My oh my. Obama and the democrats have just been hoisted by their own petard!

This is really and truly delicious. If you saw Barack Obama’s totally staged townhall meeting in Portsmouth, NH, you saw something right out of central casting. I mean that was some serious stagecraft.

We’ve all seen the many highly contentious townhall meetings on TV, and you simply don’t see a quiet, gentle, supportive crowd. It just ain’t happening!

What you do see are some angry middle aged and senior citizens who are not taking this lying down! You see people who have never done anything political in their lives who have become activists!

So this precious moment during Obama’s campaign stop just didn’t pass the smell test. The second person “randomly selected” to ask the Dear Leader a question was young Julie Hall. She asks her question at 29m:25s into the video.

You can watch the video here.

Julia read the following question off a piece of paper: “As I was walking in I saw a lot of signs outside saying mean things about reforming healthcare. How do kids know what is true and why do people want a new system that can help more of us”.

Yeah, that was totally spontaneous.

Of course those “mean things” were on posters being held by angry Americans who weren’t allowed under the big tent to participate. No dissent allowed in Hopey Changey Land!

Of course, this “totally unrehearsed and random comment” gave Obama a perfect lead in to talk about Sarah Palin’s brilliant “death panel” comment that has all of the democrats scrambling, as well as talking about not killing grandma off. And of course, blame it all on the Republicans (who don’t have enough votes to stop anything.)

The fact that there will be, in fact, defacto “death panels” has been discussed everywhere, so we’ll let that be for now.

The important thing here to know is who sweet little Julie Hall is. You would think in this day and age if someone is going to go out and pretend to be just some civilian off the street, they’d either delete their Facebook account, or radically change it up. But we are dealing with liberals here, not exactly brain surgeons.

As you see from the photos here, and a screen shot of the video, Julie’s mother is democrat insider Kathleen Manning Hall seen posing and smiling with our fearless leader, Barack Obama!

Even more interesting is the fact that this randomly chosen young Julie, lives in Malden, MA, as does Kathleen.

Coincidence?

Kathleen Manning Hall’s campaign contributions list the occupation “Legal Asst, Looney and Grossman LLP” and a home address in Malden MA:

Looks like she donated $636 to Obama in 2008.

But wait, there’s more:

This lists donations to Obama of $230 on 6/15/07, $250 on 9/28/07, $500 on 9/30/07, $300 on 3/2/08

On that link we have the $636 previously mentioned from “Kathleen Manning Hall” but we also have $1355 donated to Obama by “Kathleen Hall, Legal Assistant, Looney & Grossman” at the same address.

Looney and Grossman loves Democrats – their employees donated $12,101 in total to Democrats and $0 to Republicans.

Back to Kathleen’s Facebook Page, here are some of her Facebook friends. A quick trip to Google will find out these friends are all big time Democratic insiders:

Martha Coakley, (Democrat) Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Adam Parkhomenko, former aide to Hillary Clinton, Democrat running for VA House of Delegates (who has the support of the Brady Campaign, President Clinton and Wes Clark)

Addisu Demissie, National Political Director of Organizing for America and former Ohio Get out The Vote director of Obama for America

Adrienne Elrod, Chief of Staff to Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA)

Alan Rosenblatt, Associate Director for Online Advocacy at the Center for American Progress (and Huffington Post blogger)

Alayna Van Tassel, Budget and Policy Director for MA Senator Pat Jehlen

So much for the “randomly picked” question.

This is as pathetic as it gets.

The democrat are crashing and burning on the health care issue. Scott Rasmussen’s latest poll has support for Obamacare at a new low and circling the drain.

Obama’s townhall was a rambling, incoherent mess. He told many whoppers, like the fact that AARP is supporting his plan. They have come out and said they are not, and did that long before Obama’s NH dog and pony show.

He also brought up the Post Office vs UPS and Fed Ex as a sales pitch for government run health care.

Seriously!

It was just a very bad day.

Photo of the audience at Portsmouth, NH townhall meeting:

What makes this delicious is all of the crowing the democrats, who invented political astroturfing, have been doing in regard to the real grass roots activism that millions of Americans are getting involved in.

Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi first called all of this genuine anger astroturf back in April when all of the tea parties were in high gear as seen on the video here.

Madam Pelosi has continued her outright hatred towards the ordinary American people by pronouncing the townhall protesters astroturf too. A few days later Harry Reid and fellow slug Chuck Schumer chimed in a well. You have to wonder if they understand who their bosses are and who signs their paychecks!

And again, this from the group who invented political astroturfing!

Obama’s man, David Axelrod is the king of astroturf!

And Obama himself was a trainer of “thugs for hire” back in his ACORN days! And he had zero problem with calling out the union kneebreakers from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) to beat up some unarmed American patriots who have attended townhalls to protest.

All of this disgraceful talk about honest Americans prompted AstroTurf Chairman Michael Dennis to come out and express his outrage that these sleazy democrats were using his product to attack the American people.

As if to double down on stupidity, a democrat party specialty, Nancy Pelosi dragged her number two man Steny Hoyer, along for a great little op-ed, where she called the patriotic men and women who oppose their insane communist plans “un-American!”

Amazingly, for 8 long years we heard these same loons lecture us that dissent was the truest form of patriotism. That speaking truth to power was cool. Now it’s a crime against the state!

For the most part, the American public has gotten decidedly tired of the democrats. The democrat party lies to the American people when the truth would work better.

It’s pathological!

They have to lie about everything they do because no one would ever elect them as dog catcher if they actually told the truth about what they were up to!

It’s time for all of America to join together. I mean ALL of America.

Barack Obama and the democrat party have declared war on all of us.

They have declared war on the American citizen.

They have flat decided that even though most of the nation wants them to stand down, stop spending our great grandkid’s future, and leave the best health care on earth alone, they are still going to go full steam ahead and build themselves a communist utopia anyhow!

I mean who really cares what the peasants think!

It’s really pretty pathetic though, when they have to bring out a sweet innocent girl like Julie Hall to shill for them!

I’d say that Barack Obama and the democrats should be ashamed of themselves, but that is a foreign concept to this pathetic bunch!
