Senate cloture vote, December 21, 2009, 1:00 AM ET, Harry Reid, Ben Nelson, $470 billion Medicare cuts, $548 billion in new taxes next year

Jeff Schreiber does a great job over at America’s Right. Here is a great article about the rape of America that just took place while most of us were sleeping. Thanks Jeff.

“Is This For Real?

It’s 11:15 p.m. on a Sunday night. I’m in a king-size hotel room bed in Athens, GA with a snoozing wife and a three-year-old who is still singing “he sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake” despite the long, fun-filled day she had. It’s late. And, yet, on one side of my sister-in-law’s fancy MacBook Pro is a live stream from the floor of the United States Senate.

It’s 11:15 p.m. on a Sunday night. And Florida Sen. Bill Nelson is speaking, right now, on the floor about the Senate’s health care reform bill, which will be voted on in a little less than two hours from now. He’s talking about how private insurance companies will be forced to spend 85 cents out of every dollar on patient health care costs. Where, may I ask, does our federal government have the authority to mandate the capital structure of private companies? Where?

Why else would the lights even be on in the Capitol building unless our government is up to no good? This is legislation which will not even come into effect until 2014, two years after the next presidential election, and yet the Democrats feel it so essential to work through the night as the last weekend before Christmas comes to a close?

Most of America is fast asleep. Most of the people whom these senators represent, even if they wanted to pay attention, are sawing logs (probably not literally, though I’m sure there are a strange few) and catching winks in advance of a working Monday tomorrow. These people have no business whatsoever working right now. It might be different if they were burning the midnight oil in an attempt to save the nation with legislation that would have an immediate impact, but they are not — instead, they’re planning the destruction of our economy and health care system through legislation which will not take effect (other than the spending aspect of it) for another four years. If this is a great bill, if it is so necessary, and if the 60 percent or so of Americans who vigorously oppose it just don’t have their facts straight, then they should be debating it during the day, when most of America is awake and attentive.

12:06 a.m.

Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander made an excellent point — the reason they’re working now is because Harry Reid dropped a 400-page amendment on Friday, something that has been written and kept under the cover of darkness, and that they want to have it passed as part of the bill before Americans can figure out what’s in it.

I can count on the fingers of one hand when I’ve read 400 pages of anything in one day. One was Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, which I read in the course of one night as a kid. Another was Bernie Goldberg’s Bias, which may not be 400 pages long, but was finished in the course of a single afternoon. Reading, digesting and researching 400 pages of legislative language in one day is nearly impossible.

Other things Alexander noted:
$470 billion over the next ten years will be cut out of Medicare, and about $1 trillion in total.
$548 billion in new taxes starting next year. So much for reducing joblessness. And the taxes on medical devices will be passed along to consumers, as will the increased regulation on private insurers, which will be passed along in the form of increased premiums. So much for reducing health care costs.

The CBO said that 9 million will lose employer-based insurance. So much for insuring everyone.
Changes the bi-partisan agreement not to federally fund abortion.

A political kamikaze mission toward an unfortunate mistake. Damaging to the Democrats, but worse for our country. Nicely put.”

“12:32 a.m.

Chris Dodd is up. I can’t even look at him, nonetheless listen to him, without getting irreversibly angry. The only time I want to see Christopher Dodd at 12:32 a.m., or frankly at any time of day, is if he’s wearing handcuffs. And not in a Barney Frank kind-of-way, either — I want to see Dodd being led into prison like Bernie Madoff.

More Ted Kennedy stuff. Good grief. If Ted Kennedy were a normal, everyday American in the aftermath of this legislation, he would have been cold and dead long before he passed with the benefit of the best health care that money can buy, the same health care innovation and ingenuity that the Democrats are poised to stifle, discourage and destroy.”

“12:54 a.m.

And, as if to show evidence of nothing good happening in Washington, D.C. at all, Harry Reid is up.

Every ten minutes, he says, another American dies because they don’t have health insurance. Oh, please. We have emergency rooms ready and able to care for illegal immigrants who have no identification, nonetheless insurance. What’s going to happen is that Americans are going to die because Democrats destroyed the American health care system. What’s going to happen is that Americans are going to die while waiting for six months for a biopsy.

I will dance a jig in my new living room next November when Fox News Channel calls the Nevada election for whomever is running against Reid. And then I’ll switch over to MSNBC–just for a moment–to watch them call it. In fact, I will keep champagne on ice to enjoy during his concession speech.

And, gosh darn it, health care is NOT a fundamental right. Freedom is a fundamental right, and what they are doing right now is destroying freedom in the name of the perpetuation of power.”

“1:08 a.m.

Here goes. Cloture on Reid’s amendment, and the vote which sets up a Christmas Eve vote on the destruction of American freedom and prosperity. I mean, seriously? They need to tear these people away from their families, just so Americans from coast to coast will be too busy eating dinner and enjoying their own families to notice?

Bayh is an “aye.” Burris is an “aye.” Byrd has been dusted off and wheeled in; he’s an “aye.” Bob Casey, supposedly a pro-life Democrat, is an “aye” to a bill which federally funds abortions. Susan Collins votes “no.”

Lieberman? Aye.

Lincoln? Aye.

Landrieu? Aye.

Nelson? Aye. Unreal.

Cloture passes by a vote of 60 to 40. At 1:18 a.m. Procedural votes will come at 7:00 a.m. Tuesday and 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday. The vote for final passage will come at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday night. That’s Christmas Eve. It seems America will be getting a lump of coal in her stocking this year, and from this year on.”

This is a must read and please pass this on:

  6. ATTENTION ALL BIRTHERS- It is time to take the Bull by the horns(or whatever). We know that most likely that the Healthcare bill will get passed even though a majority of the citizens don’t like it. How can it be stopped? If it can be proved that the USURPER is not eligible. If and when those who think we are “nutcases” realize that we have the only quick remedy to save the Nation from financial ruin they too may get involved. Maybe a slogan like NO CREDENTIALS – NO TAXES – NO TAXES NO HEALTH CARE BILL- NO HEALTH CARE BILL IS FREEDOM.

    Remember – All this would never have happened if Congress had not sneakely given itself a solid gold health plan in the middle of the night, and then got caught. AND THAT WAS YEARS AGO.

  7. I think the Toxic or Poisonous symbol of Skull and Bones conveys the messaeg that these laws and CONgress are DANGEROUS to Our Health and the USA. Each and everyone that voted for DeathSCare needs to have their pic with the Skull and Bones superimposed and used in the Campaign against them.

    They need to be VOTED OUT THEY ARE 2 TOXIC for US

  8. Morning, All,

    Holder will NOT appoint a special prosecutor; remember, he’s Barky’s appointee. Look at what he did rather, didn’t do, with the Black Panthers voting fiasco.

    I’m thinking that it’s past time to take off the PC gloves. Arresting Obama is the only way to go; the court system and the Congress are ineffective. Not one has stood up to this usurper. Yes, Congress can remove him, but won’t. We all need to understand this.

    It will take an independent group to arrest him. I don’t know who that will be-the military, Oathkeepers, representatives from the AGJ, who? If anyone out there has the goods on this bum, now’s the time to put their cards on the table.

    Besides voting them all out of Congress in 2010, something needs to happen now! I can’t imagine the damage that will be done to America by the time November 2010 rolls around.

    The time for ‘playing fair’ is over.

  9. GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell alluded to all this backroom dealing on the floor early this morning before the cloture vote, but lamely refused to name names on the Senate floor.

    Screw Senate collegiality. Let the sun shine in.

    1. Sen. Ben Nelson’s “Cornhusker Kickback.” The CBO says the Nebraska Democrat sellout’s special Medicaid expansion subsidy will initially cost an estimated $100 million.
    2. New England’s Special Syrup. Vermont and Massachusetts will get similar (though less generous) special treatment by the feds in covering Medicaid expansion costs.
    3. Corruptocrat Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd’s Christmas wish. A $100 million item for construction of a university hospital was inserted in the Senate health care bill.
    4. “Some insurers are more equal than others” tax exemption. The WSJ reports that nonprofit insurance companies will be exempt from a new, nearly $7 billion tax to pay for Demcare.
    5. The Frontier freebie. Several lucky states will see an increase in Medicare payments to hospitals and doctors, the NYT reports, — And which are the lucky states? The bill gives no clue. But the Congressional Budget Office has determined that Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming meet the criteria.”
    6. More Democrat hospital bennies. Senate Democrats said this provision would benefit hospitals in Connecticut and Michigan.”
    7. Bernie Sanders’ socialized medicine sop. He wanted a public option. Instead, he got socialized medicine satellite clinics funded to the tune of at least $10 billion
    8. Fla.-Pa.-NY Protectionism. Via Politico: “Three states – Pennsylvania, New York and Florida – all won protections for their Medicare Advantage beneficiaries at a time when the program is facing cuts nationwide.”

    And you know there are many more untold payoffs — paid by stealing your money — yet to be stuffed into this bureaucratic monstrosity.

  10. Watching Fox news and just saw a commercial telling me that this is the health care bill we have been waiting for.

    They must have made this commercial prior to the vote on health care. Talk about propaganda, this makes me sick.

  11. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 26% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17 (see trends).

    Today’s update show the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President. It comes as the Senate is preparing to pass health care reform legislation initiated by the President and opposed by most voters. That latest Rasmussen Reports tracking, released earlier today, shows that 41% support the health care legislation and 55% are opposed.

  12. Swear to God, I’m 48 years old and never believed I’d see government this secretive, corrupt and self serving. We truly are seeing the overthrow of our rights and freedoms. We’re in for horrors we’ve never imagined if this isn’t stopped.

  13. Next election

    Lieberman voted out, Aye.

    Lincoln voted out, Aye.

    Landrieu voted out, Aye

    Reid voted out, Aye!!!!!

    (Nelson voted out, aye)

  17. LOOK WHO’S PEEKING IN THE BACKGROUND

  18. Here is my letter to Ben Nelson:
    ****
    Ben Nelson, (no you do not deserve the title of US Senator)
    I think you have forgotten that you work for the people. Why would you do this to America? Your new name should be Judis,… you have sold America out.
    You are just another democrat that will sell your soul for money,… money that will have to come from the other 49 states. By doing this you will be putting extra burdens on us. Don’t know what you were thinking….. NOT THINKING.
    Threats only get more out of hand,… once you become part of that problem. What next for “WE THE PEOPLE”?
    It will only be something else down the road. Amazing that someone called a US Senator could actually cause this for America.
    Pathetic to say the least.
    ****Am I too blunt?***

  19. If everyone will pardon me for injecting popular fiction into all this I thought the opening chapter of the first “Star Wars” novelization was a mind blower in its symbolism to our current situation…

    To wit…

    “The Old Repblic was the The Republic of legend…

    Once under the wise rule of the Senate…the Republic throve and grew. But as often happens when wealth and power pass beyond the admirable and attain the awesome, then appear those evil ones who have greed to match.

    So it was with the Republic at its height. Like the greatest of trees, able to withstand any external attack, the Republic rotted from within though the danger was not visible from outside.

    Aided and abetted by restless, power-hungry individuals within the government, and the massive organs of commerce, the ambitious Senator(!) Palpatine caused himself to be elected President of the Republic. He promised to reunite the disaffected among the people and to restore the remembered glory of the Republic.

    Once secure in office he declared himself Emperor, shutting himself away from the populace. Soon he was controlled by the very assistants and boot-lickers he had appointed to high office, and the cries of the people for justice did not reach his ears…

    But a small number of systems rebelled at the new outrages. Declaring themselves opposed to the New Order they began the great battle to restore the Old epublic…

    In those first dark days, it seemed cetain the bright flame of resistance would be extinguished before it could cast the light of new truth across a galaxy of oppressed and beaten peoples…”

    George Lucas was a prophet…

    Okay, back to Reality. At this point I believe a complete rereading of the Declaration of Independence is in order as we all know it it contains the lists of charges and offenses committed by the British Empire which caused the First Revolution to come about.

    You’ll be amazed at how those charges, including supression of rights and freedoms can be applied to today.

    They kept saying doing nothing is not an option.
    How much easier it would have been if they would have just done “nothing”. On top of demanding proof of his eligibility, trying to get them to be more fiscally conservative, and so on, we now face the battle for our very rights, freedoms and life!

    I hope that the exhaust fan penetration is more than just a “pipe”. You more than likely have a 3 or 4″ diameter pipe going through your attic that penetrates your roof with a vent cap. Most vent caps have a damper. When the fan is on the damper opens, and when off the damper falls closed. If you do not have a cap of some sort, you should have one put on. The good news is that if there is no cap, snow will simply blow down the pipe and drip through the exhaust fan. The melted snow will accumulate on the exhaust grill and may do some drywall damage. Pull the grill straight down and allow everything to dry out.
    If you are referring to just a plumbing vent, then you have nothing to worry about.
    I would also recommend that you check your attic for blown in snow. Remove it as soon as possible to prevent damage.

    Code TEA: Tea Parties, Go Home! All Politics Is Local
    by Capitol Confidential

    TEA Parties nation-wide have found that calling, writing, and showing up in person in D.C. has the same impact as a hiccup in a hurricane. After turning out thousands of citizens at rallies, overwhelming the Senate phone lines and crashing Congress’ e-mail system, our elected representatives are poised to enact the greatest expansion of government in history. The TEA Parties followed the direction of national organizations and associations. They answered the call, but were sent over the trench-line without an actual plan or support. (See, for example, Somme, Battle of) It is time for the TEA Party movement to turn inward. In the words of the age-old adage, “ All politics is local “

    …………To end to progression of large intrusive government and the progressive agenda, the TEA party must neuter the left’s farm team. City Council, County Board, Park Districts, and School Boards may not have the flash of State Representatives, State Senators or their federal partners, but, they are, indeed, perhaps more the important .

    Go to website to read complete article.
    This may be the way to go. Get the local government conservative and work our way up the system.

    I was thinking a similiar thing as Coburn on Sunday….why did it have to be Brittany Murphy who had a heart attack and died at 32….why couldn’t it have been Byrd…..92 who had the attack…..maybe he will catch pneumonia…..they drag him out in the dead and cold of night…..such disgusting people!!! I guess we have to wait for the Lord to tell us what he has in store for the country…..nothing is in our hands anyway…..I hope the Lord will deal with these DemoCRAPS sooner rather than later!!!!

    Strange Days Indeed…!

  40. SueK@11:28 could a law-suit be generated on behalf of the American people-that this bill is illegal since it was derived under duress, threates etc., somewhat like a class action suit? and against U.S. Code on Bribery of Public Officials? In other words how can a bill be legal when it is imposed via illegal means?

  41. 2,000,000 armed TEA party Patriots march on Washington and forcibly eject all 535 criminals AKA “representatives” & senators. The criminal trials will take a generation or more, but we must see this through to the end.

    All criminal elements who have invaded the US or are thinking about it must know from this day forward that they will be impeached. arrested. tried, and imprisoned or executed for any act which violates their oath to uphold the greatest document ever crafted. Our Constitution. The treasonous vermin have shredded it, while we watched.

    Oh, our Federal apparachix will function just fine until the special elections can be completed.

    They’ve crossed the line Patriots. We must not let this usurpation continue for even one more day.

  42. What the hell is the Senate doing voting on a bill at one freaking am in the morning? Are these people nuts? For God’s sake, I hope the Republicans are forcing readings on the floor for the bill and every single amendment. What a travesty.

    One thing the Obama Democrats did succeed in doing, is turning other Democrats who once supported them, into folks that will not only NOT support them, but will actively work against them.
    We will personally devote the next six years to making sure we do whatever we can to boot all 60 of these Democrats from the Senate, should they vote Yes and ram this monstrous legislation through. That means having to work against people we like, and a few we genuinely love. That breaks our hearts. It really is like having to stand on our principles and refuse to write those character statements for Zach, knowing we’d have to lie to give his lawyers what they needed. We just couldn’t do that, and we just can’t ever support any Senator who passes the Utopiacare bill.
    EVERY one of these people is that 60th vote that passes the bill. Every last one of them is the reason this will be inflicted upon us. Every last one of them deserves to be defeated at the first available opportunity.
    We won’t even get into the merits of healthcare reform here…because the problem we have with the actions of this Senate is on a much more basic level. The reason we are so furious is because these Senators should never pass ANY bill that’s been handled in the manner in which Harry Reid orchestrated Utopiacare in the Senate.

  46. To all who consider themselves Americans –
    The following letter has been mailed to the White House. The time has, indeed, arrived for the beginning of revolt. Step #1 is a tax revolt. I’m pleading anyone who cares about their country – and I know all on this site do – to copy this letter and to spread it as far and wide as possible. We’re all trying to do something…please…spread the word.

    Mr. Obama:

    I’d love to begin this letter with ‘allow me to introduce myself’, but I’m obviously not that stupid. If I had, your unionist thugs, Black Panthers, and ACORN operatives – or should we just refer to the whole collection of them as your ‘internal military force’? – would be outside my house before I’d even had the chance to swallow my corn flakes the next morning. Suffice it to say, however, that by the time you’re reading this letter, it will have begun to go viral on the internet. I just love the internet.

    See, what I have begun to stridently object to is your administration’s tactic of diversion and crisis, say, like, holding a vote on Cloture for healthcare at 1 am. I’m not fooled, and neither are millions of people across this country. Whenever one particular issue is at the alleged ‘forefront’ of the news (i.e., ClimateGate), I now see that your people are already onto the next one or two issues. The American People are always one step behind. I’ve decided, therefore, to move on this letter, because, quite simply, it’s something that your people were not expecting. There’s another word for this…what is it?…oh, yes…let’s call it a ‘politically man-caused disaster’.

    Like many common sense, freedom-loving Americans, I don’t necessarily enjoy paying taxes. Nobody does. That being said, however, most common-sense Americans understand the necessity of paying taxes…after all, the government (a limited one, as laid out in the Constitution) has to be able to function. Indeed, even the true revolutionaries of 1776 had no issue with paying taxes per se; they simply objected to having taxes that they had never condoned heaped upon them without being allowed even one representative in the British Parliament. Ironically, one might put forth the argument that the people once again do not have a single representative. The colonists rebelled not over taxes – they rebelled over the point of being forced to live under the dictates of a soft tyranny.

    With the advent of progressivism, communism, and Nazism at the beginning of the 20th century – no doubt in ideological reaction to the effects of the Industrial Revolution – we have witnessed (around the globe, not just in America) the drive for bigger and bigger government by those who have vested interests in power and wealth. These ‘players’ attempt to ingratiate themselves to the lower classes and the portion of the middle classes that are ignorant enough to fall for the rhetoric – either polished or emotional – that lambasts the ‘wealthy’, conveniently omitting that they themselves are also a part of the very class that they’re attacking. In its own way, it’s quite intelligent. Exploiting the sensibilities of the disaffected in populist outrage has always been the key to gaining and maintaining power, because, quite simply, there’s a lot more of those people than there are very successful, wealthy people.

    Which, of course, leads my discussion to the current American political administration. Despite you promises of transparency, refusing to listen to the whims of lobbyists, and making sure to appoint people that have nothing to hide, you have surrounded yourself with a collection of outrageous tax cheats, no doubt expecting that the American populace is much too dumb to pick up on any of this, and, even if they do, who cares? We’re certainly well below your superior intellect. Don’t make me laugh.

    Guess again, big fella.

    Despite surrounding yourself with the likes of Tim Geithner, Tom Daschle, and Charlie Rangel (WRITING OUR TAX CODE!!), you expect that the people of this country – more specifically, the common-sense, conservative middle class – to fork over more and more of the wealth for which we work to feed our families so that you can pay for your potential centerpieces – universal health care (which any educated person can see through), cap & trade (based on a fraud), and amnesty (people who will be paying zero income taxes). You’re not really this stupid, are you? I don’t know…based on everything that I’m seeing these days, maybe you are.

    Consequently, President Obama – if, in fact, you’re truly the president, which would open up a whole new ‘taxation without representation’ can of worms – I’ve decided to change my income tax filing so that I claim as many exemptions as I possibly can, and when income tax time comes, you’re more than welcome to come to get those taxes from me (or at least try), because I will not be paying them until which time you finally make the decision to behave like an adult and to actually lead your people as a president would.
    I’m more than willing to spend time in jail, if it ultimately be necessary. Fear not, however…I’ve already taken pre-determined measures to ensure that my stay behind bars will, indeed, be a reasonably short one. If you doubt the veracity of my resolve, then I invite you to test me. I’ve a feeling, though, that there’s going to be so many Americans that follow the same course of action that I doubt you’ll ever discover the author of this letter. Good luck.

    I truly regret that you’ve brought the American People and I to this point, but actions have consequences, just as elections do. Remember this – you’re not a god; you’re only a man. I fear NO man.

    They say that the pen is mightier than the sword. Well, we’re about to find out. I’m not so bold to think that I’m an especially important person, but I will personally consider this the first shot fired in the Second American Revolution.

    “That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to 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 shown 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.”

    Until we meet at my front door,
    Yours Very Sincerely,

    Time for a laugh!

    Somewhere in Lexington Kentucky :

    A man is sitting in a bar far from home when Barack Obama comes on TV.

    The man looks at the TV and says, “Obama is a horse’s ass.

    “Out of nowhere, a local jumps up and punches him in the face, knocking
    the first guy off his bar stool, then stomps out.

    He gets up, rubbing his cheek and orders another beer.

    Shortly after,Michelle Obama appears on the TV. He looks at the TV and says,
    “She’s a horse’s ass too!

    “Out of nowhere, another local punches him on the other side of the face,knocking him off his bar stool again.

    He gets back up and looks at the bartender,

    “I take it this is Obama country?”

    “Nope.” replies the bartender. “Horse country.”

    One thing the Obama Democrats did succeed in doing, is turning other Democrats who once supported them, into folks that will not only NOT support them, but will actively work against them.

    ***********
    Michelle,…… Maybe some of the more intelligent democrats. I was at a libs house on Sat., she is such a Bush “hater” that she cannot see past that point. She said that obama has inherited such a bad mess that he has had to work overtime to get this country fixed up. AND, he is doing a good job and that it is a blessing that Sarah Palin wasn’t voted in. Go figure. I just mentioned that the dems have been in power in congress since 2006,… and part of the blame could/should be placed there. NO comment from her. I just said: “MERRY CHRISTMAS” and left.
    I do know that she listens to MSNBC and CNN,… that could be part of the problem.
    *****MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.*****

  49. Looks the boys and girls in Congress don’t believe in the Good Book. The result of this non-belief is this pile of S#@* they are handing us and our future generations.

    Time Magazine quote Chief Justice Earl Warren as saying in 1954:

    “I believe no one can read the history of our country without realizing the Good Book and the good Spirit of the Savior have from the beginning been our guiding geniuses…. Whether we look to the First Charter of Virginia, or to the Charter of New England, or to the Charter of Massachusetts Bay, or to the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut. The same object is present; a Christian land governed be Christian principles. I believe the entire Bill of Rights came into being because of the knowledge our forefathers had of the Bible and their belief in it; freedom of belief, of expression, of assembly, of petition, the dignity of the individual, the sanctity of the home, equal justice of the law, and the reservation of powers to the people. I like to believe we are living today in the spirit of the Christian religion. I like also to believe that as long as we do so, no great harm can come to our country.”

  50. 2009 Continental Congress – Articles of Freedom are posted. Spread them far and wide.

    JS – that tax revolt you keep talking about is part and parcel of one of the remedies CC is recommending.

    “When a goodly number of millions of American people agree, we will withdraw our financial support from the federal government, in a lawful and constitutional manner, and implement other responsible civic actions, until all violations of the Constitution for the United States of America CEASE.”

  51. joyceaz @12:21 We have someone new on the scene that we didn’t have before– Breitbart. ACORN, SEIU fraud, corruption will be traced back to Obama and Dems. to say the mess “he” inherited is ALL Bush’s fault is insane. I would call it the perfect storm. If I had to assign guilt it would be 75 DEM 25 REP, but so what. Obama’s cure is so much worse than the disease. The government should strip down to absolute essentials to fix economy no ear marks, favoritism, loop holes, frauds etc., and doubly embarrassing to the Dems is the Obama’s act like money is for burning. They are a very poor example. Restore fiscal sanity in every governmental agency. I think most of the states are attempting to rein in their spending, but the federal government is out of control. I think it depends on when you want to bite the bullet-sooner or later-but it will be bit.

  52. TIME FOR THE FIREWORKS

    NO CREDENTIALS – NO TAXES – NO TAXES NO HEALTH CARE BILL- NO HEALTH CARE BILL IS FREEDOM.

  53. joyceaz – funny you should mention your neighbor and her utter denial of what is going on around her.

    I sware I’m living in a totally different universe from my former D friends. I had been trying to recruit an old “D” friend to do some work for me, but she believes I’m too radical. Me. Radical?

    If you knew me, that’s quite funny. Apparently, my truth is now radical and hers is correct. Really. I’m radical b/c I want my AG to investigate election fraud. Wow! Who knew? I’m radical b/c I do not believe climate change is man made but rather by natural processes. Wow! Who knew? I’m radical b/c I believe Climategate is real and proves fraud. Wow! Who knew?

    Well, I don’t know about you, but I for one have grown so weary of such trite that I now see such opportunities as a godsend. What the hell do I want people like this in my life for anyways. Really. I think I’m nearing the decision to kick every libtard far, far, far away from me. Once upon a time, I was sad about losing a couple of D friends b/c I was not supporting the one. Now, I could give a rip.

  54. The alleged Federal Government just cut an ILLEGAL deal with NELSON. NOW WE NEED TO HAUL NELSON INTO COURT. HE CANNOT TAKE A DEAL THAT USES TAXPAYER MONEY TO BENEFIT HIS OWN STATE. IT MUST BENEFIT ALL STATES AT AN EQUAL LEVEL.. IF HE IS TO HAVE FREE MEDICAID THEN ALL STATES MUST BE GIVEN THE SAME STATUS. HE CANNOT LEGALLY ACCEPT SUCH A DEAL. WE NOW HAVE TO FIND A COURT, AND A WILLING PROSECUTOR. HOW ABOUT GUILLIANI?NELSON MUST FALL.

  55. The phone lines into Ben Nelsons offices across the country must be burning up. I called all three offices (Lincoln, Omaha, DC) busy in NE and I was told that the mail box to Ben Nelson is full and not taking anymore messages.
    Maybe there is a lot of Americans that are Pi$$ed off at his sell out for America.
    PAY TO PLAY is NOW ALIVE AND WELL.
    soooo precious to know. (sarcasm)

    ***** D21,… I am in total agreement. This is how their mental capacity works. This friend of mine (I use the word friend carefully) is against gun laws,… against illegals,… (because it effects her). But, she is willing to blame that on the right. THIS proves that most Americans are blind-sighted. YOU CAN LEAD A LIBERAL TO THE TRUTH,… BUT, YOU CAN’T MAKE THEM THINK!
    The HATE for President Bush is A REAL FORCE in this Country. Caused by the left brainwashing( weak-thinking, kool-aid drinking) morons. . . . . .
    My Mother-in-Law is another case of this. She is visiting us right now. OH BOY. She is unwilling to believe that the democrats will be capable of this fraud and greed that is going on against the American people. Even when I admit that there are Republicans that are evil and corrupt too,… she still will NOT take a stand against any democrat. UNBELIEVABLE!
    Yes, she voted for Franken in MN.
    Does that explain enough?
    We will try to deal until Jan 11.2010

  57. d2i………………………………………
    Unless you are really dense all of what you just said should have provided you with an awakening to the truth about your alleged friends. Welcome to the REALITY CLUB. (Not that it ias going to do much good). As each day passes the task in front of us becomes more and more insurmountable. Unless we are able to somehow get Nelson into Federal Court we are facing a really dicey future. I think we need to start reacting.

  58. Why no action by the Republicans on the eligibility issues?

    Because that would be a “game changer” (and they have the McCain problem).

    It’s all about manipulating the population.

    Michelle, I pray that you are correct. We need an honest Judge. Where do we find that!
    I wonder if the news media will report this news,…. IF AND WHEN IT COMES OUT. We will need to have the MSM exposing this. THERE ARE LOTS OF MINIONS WHO will not watch anything but, CNN MSNBC. They have to have their fix of “HATE of PRESIDENT BUSH”
    I have a lot of faith in Breitbart,… but, I do wonder why he is waiting until next year to bring out the other videos. WHY WAIT? IF he has the goods to bring the administration down,… HE SHOULD NOT WAIT ANOTHER DAY.

  60. NELSON MUST BE HAULED INTO FEDERAL COURT. HE CANNOT TAKE THE HARRY REID DEAL BECAUSE IT IS ILLEGAL.TAXPAYER MONEY CANNOT BE USED TO PAY HIM FREE MEDICAID FOREVER. HARRY REID NEEDS TO BE HAULED INTO THE SAME COURT AS A PERPETRATOR. IF NELSON IS TO RECEIVE FREE MEDICAID FOREVER THEN TOO MUST ALL OTHER STATES.

    As each day passes your statement becomes more and more of a reality. Most of us who are vets already know what the only remaining option is. I am sure that if you think about it you too will see where I am coming from.

  62. Ms.Helga

    I worked out for 18 years at the same gym and same time as Arnold Schwarzenneger. I talked to him nearly every day. He was strictly into power. While he was very likable, I knew him well enough to not vote for him when he ran for governor. Both he and Maria are elitists and have no time for the ordinary person. Armold proved to be a horrible disappointment. I think he turned out worse than Gray Davis. It is disgusting the way he supports Barry and Evita.

    d2i, if you are a radical, then so am I.

  64. d2i, Your D friends are just being themselves. They have been raised to believe that the government is all good and will take care of them. Anyone who questions anything about that premise is in fact radical. “We have a long road to hoe”

  65. USAPatriotshout……………………………………..

    What else would you expect from the MONEY people? They probably would even crap on you if they thought it would pay. I spent 2 years on assignment in Long Beach in the 50s and I had enough of California very quickly.

  66. Dave Voter @12:13pm

    Awesome letter. Thank you for posting. It fits nicely with the 2009 CC remedies. I hope you’ll take the time to read the Articles of Freedom. You too will see how the letter mirrors the remedy’s.

  67. Old Salt and joyceaz – thanks for the feedback. The thing that continues to disturb me, even though I left my Dem bona fides a year and a half ago, is that so many intelligent and kind hearted D friends are absolutely clueless as to what is going on around them. And when someone dares to speak up offering an opposing point of view, they are quickly labeled or dismissed. Why the denial? Why?

  68. D21,… Maybe they are too ignorant to want to know the truth! Just a thought.

  69. PD and Greg, it’s nice to learn I’m in good company. 🙂

    And yes, Greg, you are correct. I guess I am a radical b/c relying on any entity other than myself and husband won’t happen. Dependency of any kind scares the chit out of me. Who knew? Geesh, I hope I make a good one.

  70. Ignorant? sure. Intentionally rejecting the truth? that’s denial. Here’s a disturbing read written by a renowned History Professor I found over at Lord Monckton’s blog – he talks about sensing a change and compares it to Nazi Germany.

  71. DON……………………………………..

    When I say I had enough of California quickly this does not in any way impughn you or any of the decent folks who I know do exist in California.
    I impughn those who think that they are GOD, and everybody should kiss their asses. This references people like MMMMSSSS. PELOSI, DIRTY HARRY, DICKY DURBIN, DUMMY DODD, ARNOLD SWARTZENEGGER and all the other SICK little LIBERALS IN THEIR CLUB who don’t get it now, but boy will they get it as they all stand in their CELLS at LEAVANWORTH, and wonder why they are there. The word REALITY is not in the vocabulary of most LIBERALS. The word FANTASY occupies it’s place. They all live in their own little fantasyland.

  72. With the coming year will come all the new taxes with accompanying additional job losses that these new bills will demand, and people, as Rush says, will all learn just what they’re in for. I think THEN people will be looking for any way out of this tyranny and begin to be open to learn the basis for the fraud’s ineligibility and jump on board. They will find out that that is the only path to their freedom and survival. And then, out of fear of the majority opinion maybe more judges will suddenly grow a spine and “find” grounds for standing. People, out of desperation, may even turn on the state run media and scare them into agreeing as well. A New Year is always an opening for new hope and new resolve !! Hopefully this won’t be like most New Year’s resolutions!

    Horse country first……red state second!!!

  74. Old Salt-you are absolutely correct in stating it is illegal for Ben Nelson to be getting a “deal” that is not offered to all states.
    Very interesting analysis on this exact point here:
    http://lamecherry.blogspot.com/2009/12/pig-in-obama-poke.html

    Anyone from Nebraska better take note-your state will become a cesspool once this is implemented.
    This false pres must be tried for ineligibility-hopefully the closed Chrysler dealership lawsuit can pave the way (James Anderer-lead plaintiff). They are going after the illegality of using TARP funds to take over the company.
    I too, am thought of as a radical and I couldn’t care less. However, I feel like I am screaming and no one is listening but I am going to keep it up. Americans are not like Europeans-we are fighters, not quitters.

  75. D2i

    These are people whose mentality has only one track. These people can only follow and lock on to one thing at a time. They do not want to look at reality. They are AFRAID to. They are afraid that they will be proven wrong, and being proven wrong is more than their little minds can handle.

  76. Thanks oldsalt77. I fear you may be correct.

  77. JAN……………………………………………

    You are 100% correct. Every scumbag, diseased deviate, sick drughead, do nothing, and freeloader will head for Nebraska; PROMISED LAND OF FANTASY, and a free lunch. Then we can sit back and watch the state of Nebraska go to HELL IN A HANDBASKET. NELSON WILL INDEED REAP WHAT HE HAS SOWN. It will grow up to be a TIGER BY THE TAIL.

    Thank you for the “do-it-yourself” link. This is the plumbing vent and it’s buried under a 3-4 ft. snow drift. That’s why plunging the throne didn’t work. I have a feeling it’s gonna be a while before it melts.

  81. All of you people in California who have recently awakened to the reality of your predicaments, need to know that you have made the first and most important step into the real world. You need to cement your position so that the kool aid drinkers cannot pass any more off to you. Then you need to awaken as many more SLEEPING Californians as you can so that they too can have an opportunity to ingest the truth. If we are to ever beat the California apathy, and or wanton “I don’t give a damn”attitude we must awaken everyone, and see to it that they are shown the truth. The farmers in the various California valleys have recently discovered the truth about their state government, and the extent of the corruption, which is led by PELOSI, BOXER, FEINSTEIN, SWARTZENEGGER, ETC. They are now doing without the amount of water they need just because of a small fish that has been alleged as becoming extinct. Most people know better. Yet the farmers still do not have any more water rights. Hey California voters, you know what to do. Are you willing to do it in 2010?

  82. d2i 12:48 You know what the worst thing that happened to the current Democrats is: I was not a radical in the 60’s. They have become the Establishment that they so rebelled against. It used to be a party of a youthful outlook, open minded, progressive with some good ideas. Have they realized yet they have become the thing they most despised SELL-OUTS. They persecuted Nixon for crimes against the Constitution (no one is above the Constitution). Nixon said he let down the American people. Their collective acts have failed the Constitution, the American people, their sacred honor. Obama-gate is a 1,000 times worse than Water-gate. It’s still not our first Constitutional crisis, but it sure separated the traitors from the patriots. As a registered Democrat I must say they truly make me ill.

  86. So let’s see, you promised me a lifetime of professional collaboration with you as attorney for my estate trust and property management business in exchange for my support in your constitutional litigation. You promised me a free place to live and free medical care so long as I lived in Rancho Santa Margarita and would be your “boy toy” even though I resisted that, and said you should tell your husband about us, and that I preferred to live by the beach in San Clemente….which at 20 minutes is not that far from Rancho Santa Margarita except in the very worst of traffic jams.

    You promised in particular first to protect, then to save, and finally to recover my house at 4 Via Corbina only in part because you wanted it to be our long-term “love nest”—4-5 minutes away from your office, again depending on traffic. And now you want to withdraw from that lawsuit?

  90. Soetoro has finally done something that everyone will need to remember for as long as he is in office. HE TRIED TO BARTER WITH THE SAFETY OF THIS COUNTRY,IN THREATENING TO CLOSE OFFUTT AFB. HAS EVERYONE EVER HEARD OF NORAD. IT STILL OPERATES. EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT NORAD IS. iT TOOK THE PLACE OF STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND, AND DEW LINE RADAR NETWORK. WITHOUT EITHER WE WOULD HAVE NO EARLY WARNING OF INCOMING MISSILES. NOBODY, NOT EVEN THE PRESIDENT HAS THE AUTHORITY TO CLOSE THIS ORGANISATION DOWN, OR USE IT AS A POLITICAL PAWN. IN THREATENING TO SHUTDOWN NORAD, TO BROWBEAT NELSON HE HAS COMMITTED TREASON FOR ALL OF US TO SEE. IT IS EVEN WORSE THAN BLAGO TRYING TO SELL A SENATE SEAT.

  91. Things are coming to a boiling point. It’s only a matter of time. The clock is ticking.

  92. Old Salt:
    What they did here in NJ when BRAC decided they are going to close Fort Monmouth, which is a very integral part of fighting the war, with emphasis on communications. My neighbor worked there & recently changed jobs. It did not make sense, but the govt. refused to reconsider. I wonder, to this day, what their real motive was to close this base.

  93. Greg Goss……………………………………

    I take it that each letter will be written in a level of language that any OBOT MORON can understand. Perhaps even with a little picture story thrown in for good measure. That sort of brings it all down to the OBOT MENTALITY.

  94. We need to somehow get GUILLIANI,or someone of his stature to pick up a special prosecutor role, to get into the NEW AL CAPONE! (Soetoro) Actually Al Capone was a little child by comparison to Soetoro. Al was clever, but not on the magnitude of Soetoro. Soetoro has corrupted even the governments of some states, in addition to the entire judicial. When the states are finally corrupted I have a news bulletin………….there is nothing else! WE ARE THEN HAD!

    MY FAVORITE ARNOLD SCHWARTZENNEGER STORY.

    Several years ago I was driving between Richmond to D.C on I-95 and to keep awake I turned on Natl Public Radio to get me mad and awake.Terry Gross was interviewing Conan O’Brien . He was not yet the host of the Tonight Show. In the middle of a nondescript interview Conan excitedly breaks in and asks Ms. Gross “Do you know what?” “No” she said. He said that opponents of Arnold are sending out pictures of him naked. “And do you know what? He is winning by 4 inches.” I almost drove off the road.

  99. Can someone summarize on where we are with the BC issue? To me, it seems that Hawaii is not giving up any documents. OB’s colleges are not releasing anything either. Judge Carter didn’t do anything and the Chrysler dealer case isn’t doing much. Now Interpol records are not available, and the media isn’t covering the story. And I guess Obama has not responded to Deal’s request to release his records. Big surprise there. So where are we now? Is Sinclair going to bring it up if he wins a seat in Congress? Do we have any hope? Why can’t we crack this BC issue?

  100. LM………………………………………….

    I believe that Nelson’s vote IS the 60eth vote. They don’t need the rest.
    But you can be sure that I know my state Senator BAYH for the a##hole that he is. I hope that we can get rid of him soon. He thinks he is GOD and everybody should kiss his ass. He is nothing but another NARCISSISTIC MORON that we are forced to deal with. In reality everybody looks upon him in the same light as Soetoro.

    Bigger Than Watergate

    By Matthew Vadum on 12.21.09 @ 6:08AM

    ACORN critic Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is mystified that both the Democratic-controlled Congress and the Obama administration aren’t doing much about the tax-subsidized organized crime syndicate ACORN even as evidence of its wrongdoing continues to pile up.

    In an exclusive interview, the House Judiciary Committee member describes the ACORN saga as “the largest corruption crisis in the history of America.”

    “It’s thousands of times bigger than Watergate because Watergate was only a little break-in by a couple of guys,” said King. “By the time we pull ACORN out by its roots America’s going to understand just how big this is.”

    Unlike the Nixon-era Watergate scandal, the ACORN scandal reaches not only to the highest levels of government, but also to states and localities across America. The president himself and his political advisor Patrick Gaspard used to work for ACORN and the radical advocacy group has allies throughout congressional leadership who are bending over backwards to protect it. President Obama has also hired as White House counsel Bob Bauer, whom King described as “the number one defender of ACORN in the country.”

    ACORN has ties to unions such as SEIU and has business relationships with Wall Street. It has offices across the globe in places like Canada, Kenya, and India. Quite apart from the hidden camera videos that emerged in September showing ACORN employees providing advice on establishing a brothel and financing it with government grants, in the U.S. it stands accused of political corruption, election fraud, racketeering, money laundering, and countless other violations of the law. It is involved in major campaigns pushing for socialized medicine, green energy and cap-and-trade, enhanced welfare benefits, higher minimum wages, greater federal regulation of the financial services industry, and for a major expansion of the Community Reinvestment Act.

    “The legislative branch will not investigate. [House Judiciary Committee chairman John] Conyers will not. [House Judiciary subcommittee chairman Jerrold] Nadler will not. It’s not going to come out of [House Ways & Means Committee chairman Charles] Rangel’s committee. It’s not going to come out of [House Financial Services Committee chairman] Barney Frank’s committee or from anybody in the Senate. They’re going to protect ACORN.”

    Congress is deliberately dragging its heels on ACORN, just as Democrats did during the Clinton impeachment process in 1998, King said. As a member of the Iowa state senate, in December of that year King spent three days observing the proceedings against Clinton in the House Judiciary Committee.

    “I saw the climate and the culture of the left’s shield of former President Clinton,” King said. “No transgression could have been too bad to cause their morality to flip the other way on him and for them walk away from him.”

    Today defenders of ACORN in Congress are acting like the 42nd president’s defenders.

  110. WE the people must start making more noise about ACORN….demand all Senators and House Representatives to push for and investigation that is done by an outside source…..no one from ACORN or the White House should be allowed to be part of the investigation……this immoral group must be taken down before the next election!!! Call your elected officials and demand they stop death scare bill and investigate ACORN …..NOW!!!

    “I’M AFRAID FOR MY COUNTRY,” SAYS PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING OBAMA VOTER

    “SHAME ON ME,” SAYS AWARD WINNING NEW YORK POST COLUMNIST
    Michael Goodwin, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Post columnist, wrote an article today, entitled, “Dreading Our Future.” An admitted Barack Obama voter, Goodwin expresses much more than just buyer’s remorse. The anger, frustration, disappointment, shock, and fear he feels is communicated very clearly. The closest Goodwin comes to paying President Obama a compliment is, “he (Obama) has become an insufferable bore.” Here are some the the main points (my bold added), but you can read the article in it’s entirety here. Make sure and read the last quote at the bottom because it’s priceless:

  112. The following post is exactly what I have been asking for a while…..is BYRd actually capable of voting when he is incapcitated???
    Why aren’t the republicans questioning him and where is the press on this????
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At Midnight, They’ll Wheel the Senate Patriarch In

    In order for Sen. Harry Reid to have a final vote on the Senate monstrosity of ObamaCare by Christmas Eve, he must have the first of several votes at 1:01 am December 21, 2010. Any later than that, and the time fram disintegrates.

    So, to have his 60 votes, he’ll have the caregivers of the Senate patriarch, 92-year old Sen. Robert Byrd, drag the ailing Senator from bed, the warmth of his home, into the 20 degree snow covered Washington to push his wheelchair through the Senate chambers to vote.

    The West Virginia Senator has probably no knowledge of the specifics of what he will vote on, except his party says they must do this for their friend Teddy (Kennedy). The Senator has given no speeches, has only been wheeled infor votes, and then only raises his hand to gesture the vote. With no disrespect to the Senator, has anyone questioned his capability or capacity to vote on this matter, or does it not matter, so long as Harry Reid has his 60 votes. I dare say that the Democrats would question a 92-year old Republican Senotor’s capacity?

  113. This same thing happened in Illinois, the welfare queens found out that there was great welfare in Wisconsin, we almost got run over in their rush to get there. I think they broke Wisconsins welfare in less than a year. They tightened their laws shortly thereafter.
    For those who do not know it, there are signs in California in Spanish which state that Minnesota has thee best welfare in America. They go so far as to name the individual counties.
    And guess what? Those counties are loaded with Mexicans and other miscreants who move into those areas because the government payments are so good.

  114. Oldsalt 77,

    For many years we owned a horse photography business which was number 1 in southern California and maybe number 2 in all of California. I had the pleasure of meeting and selling our photographs to many very rich and famous people (horse show competitons are an expensive interest). I found most of them to be real concerned patriots who brought honor and integrity to their lives.

    All I’m saying is not all “the money people” in California are a**holes like Arnold and Maria. California has a lot of great people. Like America, California has been looted by the likes of Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein, Arnold, and a group of other snake oil salesmen.

    Elections are coming–I hope Brown doesn’t get in–there are many actions a good leader can take to resore California to its past greatness.

    Ms. Helga, one day I will share some of my most outrageous “Arnold” stories!

  115. D2i: @ 12:34

    Thank you for posting the long awaited Articles of Freedom from the Continental Congress2009. I have been studying them ALL day.

    My personal conclusion is that…if we DO spread these far and wide…and we all read them and abide by them..it would be the answer to MANY ills in this Country.

    If you missed it everybody…PLEASE go back and be sure to save them and read them over and over AND make sure they get the much needed attention they deserve!!

    CW..could they be a new post? And could we request your help in spreading them to other blogsites, and “insiders” that you know?

    Thanks!!

  116. i>We Can’t Treat Tax Dollars Like “Monopoly Money

    This kind of “we” talk manipulation profiles the machinations of the classic psychological abuser. Remember in “Gaslight” the wife abuser, in order to gain power over the wife and steal her own property of hidden gems (since on his own he’s worthless himself), the husband is commiting crimes practically under the nose of the naive, trusting wife, while using her trust in him and convincing her that she’s the one who is not rational when she weakly begins questioning him. Finally, after getting her totally dependent upon him psychologically (through scare tactics), he convinces her to believe that she’s the one going crazy and needs help. She’s the one who needs to be locked up and freedom controlled.

    Hopefully the American people, so trusting in their “one”, will not totally lose their reason and sanity by continuing to trust someone who is obviously abusing them and their naive (willfully stupid) trust. Like the movie, hopefully the ones who know who he really is, will finally convince the others of the truth. And the resulting realization of that intentional abuse won’t be pretty either!

  117. AMAZING SPEECH BY WAR VETERAN

    Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose names or policies we don’t understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it’s profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it’s profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us
    – Mike Prysner

    The chain reaction of
    evil… wars producing
    more wars… must be
    broken, or we shall be
    plunged into the dark
    abyss of annihilation
    – Martin Luther King, Jr.

    If tyranny and oppression
    come to this land, it will be
    in the guise of fighting a
    foreign enemy… The loss of
    Liberty at home is to be
    charged to the provisions
    against danger, real or
    imagined, from abroad…”
    – James Madison
