Democracy is Being Sabotaged

"The White House is in bit of a conundrum because of this privacy statute that prohibits the White House from collecting data and storing it on people who disagree with it," Judge Andrew Napolitano, a FOX News analyst, said Friday.

"There's also a statute that requires the White House to retain all communications that it receives. It can't try to rewrite history by pretending it didn't receive anything," he said.

"If the White House deletes anything, it violates one statute. If the White House collects data on the free speech, it violates another statute."


"This move is an attempt to intimidate those who have legitimate concerns about the health care plan," Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice said. "And, worse, it turns the White House into some sort of self-appointed 'speech police.' This new White House reporting program strikes at the heart of the First Amendment and has no place in this important debate about health care."

Even the ACLU said in a statement to that the White House blog is a "bad idea that could send a troublesome message."


Our President, on the other hand, had this to say:

"I need every one of you to knock on doors and make phone calls and get fired up once again so that we can go toward the future confident with Creigh Deeds leading the great commonwealth of Virginia," Obama said. "I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess," he said. " I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking." [Mr. President, the everyday Americans who are showing up to voice their concerns are not the ones who over the last 40 years have created "this mess". That would be your government. So maybe it is time for your government to get out of the way and stop trying to clean up your mess. Maybe it is now time to listen to those whom you are trying to intimidate into silence.]
Russ Carnahan was holding a meeting in St. Louis, as noted before. Over 1000 Tea Party taxpayers were locked out, while Union thugs showed up and were escorted into the hall thru the door for the handicapped. Those locked out broke out in song: God Bless America. One of the results of having Union thugs there was that a little old man who goes to tea parties and sells flags and buttons was so roughed up that he will be spending two days in the hospital!

Mike Sola of Milan demanded that U.S. Rep. John Dingell explain why Mr. Sola's son Scott, who has cerebral palsy, would not be covered under health insurance reform legislation. They were later escorted out by police.

Harry Reid has accused us of "sabotaging the democrat process" by actually voicing our opinions. Most of us would say that it is HE who is sabotaging the democrat process.


On the subject of an International Criminal Court that includes the United States, Secretary Clinton, speaking in Nairobi on Thursday, called it "a great regret" that the U.S. was not a member of the International Criminal Court, a body that adjudicates on genocide, war crimes and "crimes against humanity" (defined as including attacks "on human dignity").

Our newest high court justice in April told the Puerto Rican ACLU that she agrees with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg "that unless American courts are more open to discussing the ideas raised by foreign cases and by international cases that we are going to lose influence in the world."

Doing otherwise is "asking American judges to . . . close their minds," according to Sonia Sotomayor, because "ideas have no boundaries. Ideas are what set our creative juices flowing. They permit us to think."


ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Prosecutors say former Congressman William Jefferson could face more than 20 years in prison for today's conviction on 11 counts, including bribery, racketeering and money laundering. The New Orleans Democrat is accused of accepting more than $400,000 in bribes and seeking millions more in exchange for brokering business deals in Africa. [We can recall, perhaps, this this is the man whose freezer was found to contain over $90,000 in cash.]

Nancy Pelosi and the Swasticas!

Now it has been learned that the ONE person at a town hall meeting whom Nancy Pelosi has stated was "carrying a swastika" was someone with a tshirt that depicted a swastika - WITH A LINE CROSSING IT OUT!!! Therefore, it was a statement that the wearer is AGAINST Nazism - not for it. There are many examples of our government officials lying to us - but this takes the cake, for it is SO easy to find the truth. Nancy Pelosi should be apologizing for her mischaracterization of good American citizens. It is truly beneath the once honorable title of Speaker of the House.
OH MY GOSH! Just think about President Obama's email to 13 million supporters, as well as his administration's request for snitches to email at Now consider Obama's ACORN (into a mighty oak will grow), and of the AFL-CIO, whose President has vowed to send his minions to combat the message of the "right-wing extremist angry mobs" at town hall meetings. Most importantly, it is time to remember something which Barack Obama, the campaigner for President said, and which the fawning media failed to highlight: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the "national security" objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." (emphasis added) "People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve." Since it is our government, and therefore we the people, who actually fund ACORN and it's over 300 connected organizations, we DO have a well-funded "Civilian Security Force", administered by President Barack Obama! It is indeed time for the Silent Majority to find it's voice....

Angry Mobs Against This Health Care Reform

For those of you who have not seen the newest political ad made by the Democrat National Committee, here are some excerpts:

"The right wing extremist Republican base is back. They lost the election, the Recovery Act, and the Children's Health Care Act. Their goal is [only] to destroy President Obama and to stop the change Americans voted for overwhelmingly. They've called out the "mob". [As I recall, some 50 million Americans did NOT vote for Obama...., and many of those at town hall meetings DID vote for Obama, failing to suspect that he would try to literally "change" America in the way he is attempting]. They are "desperate" people with well-funded allies, an "angry mob". [please prove just ONE organized-by-these-allies' "storming" of a meeting! Would these be sort of like your George Soros mobs, perhaps? - or more like your ACORN mobs that Obama coached to
"get in their faces" during his campaign?). They've lost the confidence of the American people."

They cannot admit that we the people include republicans, conservatives, liberals and libertarians. We are, unlike the ACORN mobs, not gathered up, put in buses, and driven to events. We are there because we are fed up with a government who will not acknowledge that more than 80% of us LIKE our current health insurance, and don't want to chance losing it. And because we are scared of the massive debt President Obama has placed on our children and grand-children.

This is a despicable ad for the DNC to run, and follows right on the heels of Obama's administration setting up their "snitch" email site to track their detractors. It's obvious that one of their beliefs is that Free Speech only applies to those who agree with them. Now we learn that once an email is sent to the White House, it can never be deleted - so they have a permanent record of all who have therein expressed their difference with Obama. So be it.

In other examples of conservatives' evil ways:
: Do you think there's legitimate grassroot opposition going on here?

Pelosi: "I think they're Astroturf... [meaning the opposite of grassroots - sent by conservative groups] You be the judge. "They're carrying swastikas [ok - one person had a tshirt with a swastika!] and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare."

Barbara Boxer: "people storming the town hall meetings" and "well dressed people out to hurt President Obama" [No - we are out to keep this government takeover from happening].

We have been described as wearing Brooks Brothers suits (such as Obama's Inaugural suit?) , pink and green clothing - clear signs of an orchestrated group of protesters. There's one problem - in all photos of these "unruly mobs" we cannot find people dressed in this way. They all look like average Americans who are angry with the Congress and President..... and they aren't being listened to!

One congressman, who is refusing to hold town hall meetings during his August recess is saying that it is because we protesters are "brown shirt mobs" - comparing us to the Nazis.


Dem Rep. Brian Baird of Washington State has canceled in-person town halls, citing the protesters’ use of “Brown Shirt tactics.”

Instead of appearing in person, where “extremists” would have “the chance to shout and make YouTube videos,” Baird said Wednesday, he’s holding what he calls “telephone town halls” instead.

Baird said he’s using the new system because he fears his political opponents may be planning “an ambush” to disrupt his meetings, using methods Baird compared to Nazism.

Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada accused the protesters of trying to "sabotage" the democratic process. The Republican Party says it's not behind the protests, but Reid scoffed at the notion that the protesters reflect grass-roots sentiment. A senior Republican Senate aide shot back: "Harry Reid will be surprised to learn that not only do the people he routinely insults have opinions, they also vote. Right now the 'astroturf' is out-polling Harry Reid 60-40 in Nevada."

“What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics,” Baird, D-Vancouver, said in a phone interview. “I mean that very seriously.”

I have found the mob leader - and it is President Obama, who is "astroturfing" from the White House, sending an email to his 13 million "brownshirts" whom he amassed via Organizing for America during his campaign, asking his minions to get out on the street to fight back, to flood the town hall meetings, to "get in their faces" again. He has been joined by John Sweeney of the AFL-CIO, who has announced he’ll be sending in union members to the meetings to counter health care’s critics."


The headline reads: Hateful Elderly Rightist Nazi Dittohead GOP Thugs Storm AARP Meeting! [The AARP spokeswoman just unplugs her microphone and leaves, unwilling to entertain questions! The senior citizens calmly took over the meeting, giving those who wished to speak the chance to do so.]

At a town hall meeting near Tampa, Florida liberal organizers were accused of attempting to allow early admission to those who were seen as favorable to health care plans making their way through Congress. Over 1500 citizens showed up, and the anti-health care bill people were on the outside, demanding their right to be inside.


Violence is now part of these town hall meetings (in St. Louis County, for another example), for Obama's counter-rebels are not just talking and asking questions. This is "community organizing" the ACORN/Obama way. He must be so proud. Inciting riots can be oh, so exciting....

From Bart Willruth of American Thinker: Just to verify what I have been writing:
In 1930's Germany, the new socialist government of Adolf Hitler (NAZI National Socialist Workers' Party) began indoctrinating children in the quasi-military organization, the Hitler Youth, to inform on their parents should they overhear discussions subversive to the policies of the Leader. As the noose was tightened, local community organizers were appointed to watch their neighbors and were told to report subversive comments to the bureaucrats above them. Neighbors informed on neighbors, some for reasons of patriotism or loyalty, some from fear. A modern inquisition ensued; a terror to free thought and expression. Increasingly harsh penalties were meted out to those who dared to dissent.

The socialist governments of the Soviet Union, Fascist Italy, N. Korea, Cuba, Yugoslavia, and the People's Republic of China employed the same citizen informer techniques. Citizens of those societies were reduced to either silence or whispered discussion only among those they trusted the most. Of course none of those things would ever occur here in the land of the free. But wait...

Now on the White House website posted by Macon Phillips comes an eerily similar request for citizens to inform on their neighbors.

I have finally found a trustworthy columnist who is addressing some of the points in the health care bill. We've all received emails of pages in the document, but I for one have not been able to verify the info. Read the following Mike Adams' column if you wish to learn some facts. He writes for Townhall and is a Criminology Professor at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington.

Dear Barack Obama: I would like for you to take the time to answer these questions for two reasons. First, I’ve spent a lot of time reading the health care bill. Second, and more importantly, the U.S. Congress has not spent much time reading the bill.

On Page 22, I saw some language, which suggested that the bill mandates audits of all employers that choose to self-insure. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 29, I saw what appeared to be an admission that health care will be rationed under this new plan. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 30, I discovered that a government committee will be established to decide what treatments and benefits I get. However, unlike an insurer, I see no evidence that there will be a process to appeal their decisions. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 50, I read some non-discrimination language, which seems to suggest that all non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free health care services. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 59, I saw some language suggesting that the federal government will have access to all individual bank accounts for health-related electronic funds transfers. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 124, I learned that no private company can sue the government for price-fixing. Furthermore, no "judicial review" is permitted against a complete government monopoly. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 127, I read that the government will now set wages for physicians. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 149, couched in esoteric “contribution” language, it looks like any employer with a payroll of $400,000 or more, who does not offer the public option, pays an 8% tax on payroll as a penalty. This penalty would go a long way towards destroying the private system. It would also seem to violate your campaign promises – specifically those you made during debates I watched. If I read this correctly, it appears you looked me – via the camera – in the eye and lied. So, Barry, can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 203, I read a very strange sentence: "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax imposed by this chapter for purposes of determining the amount of any credit under this chapter." I know this is supposed to be a true/false test but do you think calling a “tax” by some other name means it is no longer a tax? This seems to be a persistent theme in this bill. Please explain. Attach extra sheets of paper if necessary.

Page 272 has some of the most esoteric language of the health care bill. But it looks like the government plans to ration health care for cancer patients. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 280, I read that hospitals will be penalized for what the government deems to be “preventable re-admissions.” Once again, I know this is supposed to be a true/false test but, please, tell me this: How is the government in a better position (than a health care professional) to determine what constitutes a “preventable re-admission?”

Page 317 suggests that doctors will soon be prohibited from owning and investing in health care companies. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

The following page suggests that hospitals can no longer expand without government approval. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

On Page 429 things get very disturbing unless, of course, I am reading this wrong. It appears that an advance care planning consultation will be used to dictate treatment as a patient's health deteriorates. This can include an order for end-of-life plans – specifically, an order from the government. Can you tell me whether that is a) True or b) False?

It really bothers me, Mr. President, that I can learn a lot more about pending legislation from an internet chat room than I can from my elected representatives. It also bothers me that I have to read pending bills because, in all likelihood, my representatives will not. Regardless, I want you to read this email carefully and answer all of my questions.

If you answer “true” – even to a single question - you will have lost any prospect of gaining my support. If you answer “false” to every question we can move on to pages 500 through1018.


In another example of the power of Barack Obama's foreign policy:

Mark Mazzetti and Thom Shanker report that a pair of nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines has been patrolling off the eastern seaboard of the United States in recent days, a rare mission that has raised concerns inside the Pentagon and intelligence agencies about a more assertive stance by the Russian military.

The episode has echoes of the cold war era, when the United States and the Soviet Union regularly parked submarines off each other’s coasts to steal military secrets, track the movements of their underwater fleets — and be poised for war.

My letter to

We are now being called part of a "fringe" group because we are confronting this government's plans for a government take-over of all our health care. We are being told that we are there because of the insurance companies and their organization of us to be at town hall meetings.

Here is my letter to

I am writing to report an "iffy" description of your health care bill. It is from the White House, and is described as your 5 point plan to remake health care in our country. It is hiding from us the truth. And the very notion that you have made this email site available for citizens to "inform" you of those they think are against you is a shocking example of gestapo tactics - citizens spying on citizens just for you.

For instance, you say we can keep our own insurance plan, that we will not be forced to go on a government plan. That is true - UNTIL WE CHANGE OUR JOB and need to get new insurance, in which case we must go on the government plan.

I suggest you read all 1000+ pages of this bill to see what you are asking over 80% of Americans who have health insurance and like their current plan to forfeit. This is not what we have in mind to fix the system. We want it fixed for those who do not otherwise have insurance. Leave the rest of us alone, and stop claiming that insurance companies are immoral and evil! A federal government which controls our country and many of its companies is what is evil. It is also unconstitutional, as it far exceeds the constitutional mandates for what the federal government is tasked to do for the country.

One last thing: you should treat the good Americans who are finally mad enough to get out of their easy chairs to express themselves with the same dignity and admiration as you treat the ACORN community organizers whom you have trained. We are there not because we have been organized to be there, nor because we are possible terrorists who are part of a "fringe" group, but because we care about the direction in which you are taking our country. As Hillary Clinton famously screamed: "We are Americans, and we have a RIGHT to disagree with ANY administration!!!"

Whitehouse email for Obama's informants to turn us in.....

Perhaps you, like I, wondered why Vice President Biden joined President Obama's "Beer Diplomacy" with Sgt. Crowley and Professor Gates. Here is a possible reason, stated by Dennis Prager: "We were all blindsided by the reason that liberals apparently instinctively understood: to provide racial balance, as it wouldn’t look right if Sgt. Crowley were outnumbered two to one by blacks. In the words of the New York Times coverage of the event: “to add balance to the photo op that the White House presented: two black guys, two white guys, sitting around a table.” How instructive, adds Prager. "The fact that Crowley was outnumbered three to one by liberals meant little or nothing to most Americans on the left, because they deem race far more significant than values. Most conservatives, on the other hand, saw the president, the vice-president, the Harvard professor and the police officer, not two blacks and two whites. Indeed, such a calculation would have struck most conservatives as absurd: Was Sgt. Crowley supposed to think, “Hey, great, another white is at the table; now I feel secure”? "


In the words of Barack Hussein Obama in Dreams of my Father: My stepfather Lolo said, "Men take advantage of weakness in other men. They're just like countries in that way. The strong man takes the weak man's land. He makes the weak man work in his fields. If the weak man's woman is pretty, the strong man will take her. Which would you rather be? Better to be strong. If you can't be strong, be clever and make peace with someone who's strong. But always better to be strong yourself. Always."


Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress has recently attempted to explain the Obama health care stand on old folks and their health care, saying that Obama, with his mantra for old people to just take a pill and deal with infirmities, will help us younger folks get over our "guilt trap", whereby we do more than we probably should to keep our parents alive, thereby spending way too much money on them. Now - don't we seniors feel so much better?


Here are some excerpts from a letter from Representative Darrell Issa to Rahm Emanuel:

The Honorable Rahm Emanuel
White House Chief of Staff
The White House
Washington, D.C. 20500
Dear Mr. Emanuel:
As you know, Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ) recently raised questions about the failure
of the stimulus and suggested on a national television show that stimulus money
scheduled to be spent in future years ought to be returned to the American taxpayers.
Following Senator Kyl's remarks, according to Politico, you coordinated an "assault" on
Senator Kyl and other critics of your policies by directing four cabinet secretaries to write
to Jan Brewer, the Governor of Arizona, asking pointedly if, in light of Senator Kyl's
remarks, Governor Brewer wished to forfeit taxpayer money directed to Arizona by the
stimulus. These tactics have been characterized as "a fist to the nose" and a message to
"Back off."While this type of scare tactic may work in Chicago, it will not work to
intimidate me or other Members of the United States Congress. At the risk of adding to the "weeks of frustration" you've reportedly felt in response to criticism of the Administration's ineffective and wasteful policies, please allow me to bring the facts about the stimulus to your attention. In selling the stimulus package, the Administration promised the Congress and the American people that the legislation would create or save 3.5 million jobs and prevent the U.S. unemployment rate from rising above 8%.

I and others have dared to bring these facts to the attention of President Obama,
the Congress and the American people. You've unfortunately reacted by once again
resorting to the playbook of the Chicago political machine. As Politico reports, you
"launched a coordinated effort to jam" Senator Kyl and other Administration critics:

At what point do you believe your practice of Chicago-style politics violates a public official's right to speak out in favor of alternative policies? The American people have a right to know what role you played in developing the threatening letters to Governor Brewer and whether you intend to continue to engage in these tactics in the future.
Well done, Representative Issa!

We The People are finally leaving the comfort of our homes to make our voices heard at town hall meetings and tea parties. The Democrats and President Obama, who just love it when ACORN member get "in the faces" of their opponents, are unhappy with these "mobs", as they call us. They are attempting to make America believe that these are "rented mobs" sent by the "immoral" insurance companies, not wanting to believe that the Silent Majority are finally taking a stand. Let's keep reminding them that we've taken enough and we WON'T let them take from us our free speech! As Hillary Clinton famously screamed: "we have a RIGHT to debate any administration!"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------! This is the email site to which the White House has asked it's minions (informants) to send to them any iffy emails they receive regarding opposition to the health care bill. Gosh, I wonder how many of us will now be in Obama's database...... I think I'll write a letter to this email address to express my outrage!
Source: Dreams from My Father, by Barack Obama, p. 37 Aug 1, 1996

Monday, August 3, 2009 If you can spend a few minutes watching this video, you will hear the following quotes by Barack Obama: "We won't be able to limit employer coverage immediately. There will be some transition process. I can envision this 10-15 years out"; and "I happen to be a proponent of a single payer system". You will hear Barney Frank one week ago saying: "I think if we could get a public option - that could lead to a single-payer system. That's the best way to reach single payer". Our government is lying to us when it says this will not take away from us our choices. In fact, this is their incremental move to get us all covered by a government plan - except of course for THEMSELVES!
We should at least expect them to actually read the bill prior to voting on it.. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) previously laughed at the idea of all members of Congress reading the entire health care bill. “I’m laughing because I don’t know how long this bill is going to be, but it’s going to be a very long bill." Several Congressman have put forth a bill mandating the reading of the bill.


News is being made about Congressmen having to deal with feisty, take-back-my-country constituents (who are increasingly questioning their Congressmen on the issues with which they disagree), and some of them have decided not to hold town hall meetings because they consider their disagreeing constituents to be dangerous, or at least difficult - and who would want to subject themselves to that? When a group of senior citizens went to Diane Feinstein's office, for instance, to discuss their concerns over the proposed health care bill, she made them wait for 6 hours. At that time, she had police lure them outside, after which she had the doors to the building locked. Lloyd Doggett, D, was in Austin to support the opening of a new Visitor Center, when some people began protesting the health care bill. When Arlen Specter and Kathleen Sebelius held a meeting, they were confronted with folks who questioned their stated need for speed, and their stated no need for reading the bill. So - in my view, news is being made about Americans who have reached the end of their patience with a government takeover of our nation. They are showing up, speaking up, and rebelling! Perhaps these, our representatives, hold dear the proclamation by our Homeland Security Chief that Tea Party protesters are possible terrorists. They are cancelling or failing to schedule meetings while in their home states.....

I have personally learned that more than 5000 citizens joined Judge Napolitano of Fox News for a Tea Party Protest at the Capitol building in downtown Columbus, Ohio. We need more of these great turnouts of citizens demanding that their Congressmen pay attention to those whom they represent! Did any of you see this covered in the news? Probably not.


is breaking about what happens when a person wants to turn in his "clunker" car, which is to be destroyed within two days, in order to get $4500 from the federal government when he buys a government-approved car. The dealer logs onto and "submits" his transaction. Here is where it says, ‘Privacy Act & Security Statement'. Most people will agree without actually reading to what they are agreeing. A warning box comes up, and it says, ‘This application provides to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a federal computer system and it is property of the United States government. Any and all uses of this system and all files on this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT and law enforcement personnel, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign." [ We can thank Glenn Beck for exposing this problem. Can anyone begin to feel an invasion of privacy here?]
Atty. Kimberly Guilfoyle of Fox News Network said that the government can legally use Web software to track your computer any time they want once you've logged into the site. The government, according to her, has malware systems and tracking cookies to tap in any time they want......[ And in the last administration the Democrats thought that tracking the phone calls of suspected terrorists was a bad thing.... Well, this certainly trumps that as an invasion of privacy, doesn't it? We'll keep on this to see if this could possibly be true, but it has been reported by a valid news source. An unintended consequence of this cash for clunkers program is that because the clunkers are all to be destroyed, fewer old and used cars and their parts will be available to those among us who can only afford to buy and drive an old used car. Those people's costs will be going up due to the decreasing number of used cars and parts available.....]


And in this week's I Kid You Not story, for they actually seem to be facing some detractors:

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Sam Brownback today with Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) introduced the Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act of 2009.

“This legislation works to ensure that our society recognizes the dignity and sacredness of human life,” said Brownback. “Creating human-animal hybrids, which permanently alter the genetic makeup of an organism, will challenge the very definition of what it means to be human and is a violation of human dignity and a grave injustice.”
