Illegals Can Register to Vote Now in Georgia!; Obama Giving British Missile Secrets to Russia!; Repeal Obamacare Efforts; Another Tax Increase from Obama; GM Union Now Getting $3000 Bonuses; Demanding Arabic Classes in Texas Schools;

[It has long been my contention that this Administration is trying to overwhelm us with their progressive, America-hating agenda.  They hope to have us throw up our hands, quit working so hard to keep up with them, and just sit in an easy chair and let them have their way.  NO WAY!  We must never stop trying to bring the truth to those who don't have the time to find it and to report it!]  Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel issued the following statement:  “The decision by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to deny preclearance of Georgia’s already implemented citizenship verification process shows a shocking disregard for the integrity of our elections. With this decision, DOJ has now barred Georgia from continuing the citizenship verification program that DOJ lawyers helped to craft. DOJ’s decision also nullifies the orders of two federal courts directing Georgia to implement the procedure for the 2008 general election. The decision comes seven months after Georgia requested an expedited review of the preclearance submission.
“DOJ has thrown open the door for activist organizations such as ACORN to register non-citizens to vote in Georgia’s elections, and the state has no ability to verify an applicant’s citizenship status or whether the individual even exists. DOJ completely disregarded Georgia’s obvious and direct interest in preventing non-citizens from voting, instead siding with the ACLU and MALDEF. Clearly, politics took priority over common sense and good public policy.  [Now - can't Congress do something about this?  I know that our Secretary of State Ruth Johnson has as one of her objectives making sure only qualified voters vote.  I'd like to add that only constitutionally qualified candidates can be put on the ballot......]
The UK Telegraph reveals: Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.
Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.
The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.  [Just why is the media not reporting this?)
Fox News reports: A group of South Dakota lawmakers has introduced a bill that would require almost everyone in their state to buy a gun once they turn 21. 
Turns out it's not a serious attempt. Rather, the lawmakers are trying to make a point about the new health care law -- that an individual mandate is unconstitutional, whether it requires everyone to buy health insurance or, in South Dakota's case, a firearm.
American Thinker opines: In the Senate, Mitch McConnell, who has promised to tack a repeal [Obamacare] amendment on every piece of legislation, began implementing his promise and attached such an amendment to the first bill of the session, one to authorize funding of the FAA.  Every Republican voted for the amendment; every Democrat voted against it.  As anger against this act and the administration continues to soar, it will be interesting to see how many vulnerable senators will continue to stake their future careers on a monumentally unpopular act that cost so many of their congressional colleagues their seats last November. The administration is clearly hoping to delay any appeal to the Supreme Court on the law so that implementation will be so far underway that it can argue that undoing the legislation would have a disastrous impact on the economy and national health care.
John Fleming, Congressman wrote: "As you may have heard, the House voted to repeal the new health care reform law, but the Senate failed to do so this week by a vote of 47-51.  So, as a recent article in The New England Journal of Medicine pointed out, a step in the right direction is to choke off funding for the new law.   
For this reason, I have introduced H.R. 38 to rescind the Health Insurance Reform Implementation Fund, a $1 billion fund appropriated as part of the Reconciliation package to pay for federal administrative expenses at the IRS and the Department of Health and Human Services to carry out the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010. 
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:  As of the end of November 2010, $40.8 million of these funds have been obligated to provide for administrative expenses of the Health and Human Services and the IRS to implement the new health care reform law.  By rescinding this fund, $900 million would be returned to the treasury, thereby reducing the federal deficit."    JOHN FLEMING, M.D. Member of Congress
Fox Business writes: Tax pros, who asked to remain anonymous, fear taxpayers simply won’t comply with health reform's new onerous 1099 requirement because it requires small businesses to file even more, separate tax forms to be compliant; can trigger erroneous penalties from the IRS if the forms are missing information or are incorrect: can expose taxpayers’ personal identification information; and it can require expensive new computerized systems to comport with the letter of the tax law.
Tax pros now fear that tax evasion could go viral if the health-reform bill’s new 1099 requirement takes effect next year. They say more small businesses will likely opt to do all-cash transactions under the table to avoid the 1099 reporting requirement, and all of its onerous provisions, which are worse than small businesses may realize.
The Wall Street Journal writes: President Barack Obama's budget proposal is expected to give states a way to collect more payroll taxes from businesses, in an effort to replenish the unemployment-insurance program. The plan could cause controversy at a time when the administration is seeking to mend fences with corporate America.
The proposal would aim to restock strained state unemployment-insurance trust funds by raising the amount of wages on which companies must pay unemployment taxes to $15,000, more than double the $7,000 in place since 1983.   [This, from the lying President who claimed that he has not raised any taxes while in office.]       
CNS News writes: President Obama’s assertion on Sunday that he “didn’t raise taxes once” is “blatantly false,” a taxpayer watchdog group says. Obama made the claim in his pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.  
According to Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), President Obama has signed into law at least two dozen tax increases. The first one – a federal tobacco tax hike – came just 16 days into his presidency.  
ATR says the $1 trillion health care overhaul alone added numerous taxes, including the individual mandate that requires most Americans to purchase health insurance or else pay a fine.
As if that weren't enough, GE, whose unions now own a substantial share of GM, and the company which received bail-out monies which have not all been paid back - is now announcing a $3000 bonus for its 45,000 workers!  In a period of recession!  Shouldn't that money be returned to WE the people instead?
CBS News reports on the attempted law in Texas: The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education. As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would have been taught at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and other schools feeding into Summit High School.
The Department of Education has identified Arabic as a ‘language of the future.’
Mansfield ISD says in addition to language, the grant provides culture, government, art, traditions and history as part of the curriculum.
Some parents had concerns over religion.  “The school doesn’t teach Christianity, so I don’t want them teaching Islam,”  [After reaction to yesterday's revelation, the program has now been put on hold. Coming to a school in your community?  Be ever vigilant.]


  1. Bet you'd find more citizens in SD willing to buy a gun than buy Obamacare...

  2. Although FLAP was created to address national shortages in languages including Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian, and languages in the Indic, Iranian, and Turkic language families, only Arabic is apparently being pushed. And does this come as a surprise given that FLAP (first funded in FY 2008) was created by the Obama Administration?!
