Like Christmas

“It’s just going to be like Christmas. It’s going to be great. You know, no worries about the bills..” This was the cathartic cry of one DeCarlo Flythe, yet another of the fifties of millions of new beneficiaries of today’s Bolshevik benevolence. What was once a “privilege” has now been “changed” into a “right” through collectivist chicanery and socialist sorcery. This became a “right” based solely upon the totalitarian tenets of “fairness” enabled by sclerotic socialism, not the Constitution of the United States but these type of annoying details do not matter when you have an “agenda” to impose..

Welcome to the progressive promenade as Obama signed the health scare scam within hours of it being passed due to the invaluable help of the “Pro Life Democrats”.. The Obama “promise” of allowing the public to view bills for at least five days before signing them was apparently trumped by the “importance” of this “issue”.. You might be surprised to find out that the taxes imposed upon the nation’s small businesses began today. What WAS going to be the tax upon Botox and plastic surgery was turned into a ten percent tax upon tanning salons.. I am quite sure that the wrinkled relic in charge of the House had NOTHING to do with this switch..

This is the trickle that will become the tsunami relative to the ridiculous redistributionist folly first known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” which then morphed into the “Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010”.. Remember that if a liberal says it, it must be true and no proof on their part is necessary. How can the deceiving Democrats lump “Patient”, “Protection”, Affordability” and “Care” into one sentence without the paper that it is printed on bursting into flame? “Truth in advertising”, anyone?

Next, I will not allow the “impartial” media’s softening of the Obama socialist agenda to continue any longer. I am tired of totalitarian takeovers being surreptitiously soft boiled into “overhauls”.. Obama “overhauled” General Motors. He “overhauled” the banks.. He “overhauled” the insurance companies and now he has “overhauled” the ENTIRE medical industry. And he’s not done yet..

One of the targets of this “landmark legislation” is already under the oligarch’s thumb, small businesses. Today’s “tanning tax” becomes tomorrow’s “productivity penalty” as Obama needs to bleed the middle class starting today for countless trillions of dollars in order to supplement the shiftless and to mend the moochers.. Millions more liberal leeches have attached themselves to the middle class and they were given the green light by the “Pro Life Democrats”..

This “bill” will “allow parents to keep children younger than 26 on their plans as the clock has already begun ticking on many of the law’s provisions..” (“Health Care Overhaul Changes to Start Taking Effect This Year” bloomberg dot com) The liberal politician’s life affirming goal, to turn every able bodied American into a “dependent child” not unlike the liberal voting base, is embodied in this small passage. They would prefer that everyone “younger than 100” be manacled to the Marxist machine in perpetuity.. In the America BEFORE the Obamanomics of twenty million jobs permanently destroyed and a permanent ten percent unemployment rate, “children” aged 25 almost always had a job with insurance benefits and didn’t need the helping hand of the liberal government..

The sarcastic socialists even take those that they are targeting later and they have sanctimoniously given them a “rebate” PRIOR to the mid term election. Those on Medicare, the elderly and the disabled, will receive a “$250 rebate” for prescription drugs when they reach the “donut hole”.. What Obama isn’t telling you is that “the $940 billion (takeover) subsidizes coverage for uninsured Americans, financed by Medicare cuts..” Obama is going to CUT benefits to the ELDERLY and the DISABLED in order to reward the able bodied leftist loafers of the liberal-voting base and those soon to be on the Democratic roles, the ILLEGALS.

Another prediction revealed, and I quote Maury Harris, economist with UBS AG, “Most of the major policy changes embodied in the health care reform legislation will become effective only after the next presidential election in 2012..” Time heals all wounds and the nation will conveniently forget about the health scam as it will merely sit at idle, hiding inconspicuously in the shadows until after the votes are counted in 2012.. The liberals will all be crowing that “the sky won’t fall, grandma won’t be put to death, federal troops won’t be occupying hospitals..” (Jim Jordan, Democratic “strategist” LA Times 03/22/10) knowing full well that that is EXACTLY what will happen once the smoke clears from the air of the socialist song and dance of 2012..

Businesses both big and small will be placed in the cross hairs for actually being in business with exorbitant penalties, fees and taxes. These businesses will then unemploy more employees as opposed to paying all of these “fines”, raising the already impressive ranks of the unemployed courtesy of the Obama administration. Those workers left bearing the burden will be overworked as well as overtaxed as the liberals have a lot of votes to buy before the mid term election rolls around. These businesses will also pass along the mandatory Obama taxes and penalties to the products that they produce. This is certainly the perfect recipe for the Obama economy that is struggling to move beyond the horror of his presidency. Consumers, the middle class, they get the double whammy. They are taxed more for less and the products that they wish to buy are more costly..

“The U.S. Health and Human Services Department will have two years to set penalties on hospitals with high readmission rates..” The liberals don’t understand how the people that they have enabled for generations “exist”. “Health care” is now FREE for them, they have nothing else to do with their time, they merely take up space and waste air through their embarrassing existence. They will be back tomorrow, they will be back the next day and so on.. Is Obama suggesting that the only way around this type of recidivism would be from another session with the “end of life counselor”? The mendicants will go from standing in free cheese lines all day to sitting in emergency rooms.

There will be an “Independent Payment Advisory Board” that will “suggest cuts in Medicare..” Again, Obama is going to eviscerate “health care” from Medicare to the ELDERLY and to the DISABLED. There will undoubtedly be a “need” for a few more Czars, a few more “oversight” boards..etc, etc.. Never once in all of this are there ANY cuts relative to another governmental “health care” program..

Medicaid. California alone just added 1.6 million more Medicaid recipients to their already impressive total of seven million and that is before the next wave of ILLEGALS make their way into Mexifornia.. This adds another 3 billion dollars annually to a state already twenty billion dollars in the hole.. Medicaid represents at least 15 percent of the nation’s health care budget BEFORE this nonsense was passed and that is WITHOUT tabulating all of the waste and redundancy that is hardwired into EVERY governmental program/intrusion. Medicaid alone accounted for nearly half a trillion dollars in 2008. How do we pay for this all of this “collectivist compassion” when “in the first nine months of 2009, states suffered the biggest decline in revenues ever recorded..” (“States Sue Over Overhaul That Will Bust State Budgets” bloomberg dot com)

WE are paying for an “expansion of Medicaid services for the poor and subsidize health insurance to cover millions who don’t currently have benefits..” “This bill imposes about 469 billion more in penalties for individuals and businesses..” “Those who buy devices such as wheelchairs would pay a 2.9 per cent excise tax..” No insurance? “A fine of $325 in 2015 and $695 in 2019..” (New Taxes for Health Care Help Obama ‘Spread The Wealth Around’” bloomberg dot com)

Let’s not forget the “reconciled” renaming of this travesty, “The Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act”.. The Obama administration tacked on the non-governmental issue of students loans, just another of the “takeovers” meant to close free market businesses in order for the liberal “helping hand of government” to intercede..

This is a seventy billion dollar a year industry that is now being “watched over” by Big Brother’s Big Brother.. In another set up similar to the Bart Stupak “Pro Life Democrats”, six Democratic Senators, (Nelson, Lincoln, Warner, Webb, Carper, and Bill Nelson from Florida.. The last four will be taking lessons from the first two on how to properly play this “Cornhusker Kickback” business..) are “voicing concern over the president’s lending overhaul (takeover) plan..” Nelson and Lincoln “indicated they planned to vote against the ‘fix it’ bill..” Doesn’t that sound familiar from these two shakedown veterans? Webb, showing his true Democratic colors said, “I think there are efficiencies in the private sector that you don’t have in the government, but it’s not going to affect my vote on reconciliation..” (Banks on Verge of Losing Student Lending Business” fox news) There you have a complete encapsulation of the liberal political mindset.. Who needs efficiency? Just tax them more..

“It’s just going to be like Christmas..” So how does it feel to be Santa Claus.. Involuntarily..

  1. Family,

    I sadly must announce that this morning, yet another officer for the city of St. Louis was killed in the line of duty. This happens with all too great a frequency here..

    Please keep in mind that we have troops on the front lines here in America as well..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  2. Larry,

    Sorry to hear of the loss of one of your own. We really do appreciate what our police and military do to keep us safe. It’s sad that the idiots in Washington ( the corrupt capital ) don’t seem to care.

    Condolences to you and yours. God bless.

  3. The “education” portion of this bill is meant to increase Pell Grants, which historically, were reserved for minority students. So it is no surprise that this President (who makes me puke), wants to “redistribute” wealth (our money) to the lazy and irresponsible leeches and illegal aliens. The time for talk has passed and we must turn words into action.

  4. My condolences, Larry. I always pray for those who keep our freedoms through their service, so know that we are all praying for protection. But if I were God, I don’t know what I’d do since He has been kicked and walked on and told to get lost.

    I agree with your post. It is going to be like Christmas and all the legislative body is looking for new things to tax. Rocky Mountain Power is trying to get authorization to turn off our air conditioners to meet power demands elsewhere. I say if they turn it off, the owe me a rebate. It is beyond me that congress thinks they can get away with all this. I too, think there is going to be an attempt to have a riot so they can declare martial law and shut down the polls. Can you imagine living under Obama until you die? What a horrendous thought!

  5. Michele from NY

    Sorry to hear of the death of the officer. Terrible that those who do their best to protect us are often left unprotected themselves. My condolences to this true hero of our country.

    The local liberal rag ran the headline “Historic!” with a pic of the slavering socialists hovered around their messiah signing the scam, uh, I mean bill and a copy of his childish signature. Not an easy thing to look at first thing in the morning, almost heaved my coffee all over it. (Probably should have!). My 10 year old wanted to know what was so “historic” about it. I told him that it’s historic because never before in this great country did our public servants completely and utterly ignore the wishes of the LEGAL residents to put forth their agenda. He noted that Pelosi “looks like a witch and should have a bucket of water thrown at her”. I’m still laughing…

    If I read and/or hear one more bottom feeder mention how “wonderful” this is going to be I’m going to smack them. They just don’t GET it.

  6. Michele,

    Unfortunatly, they DO get it..

    Anytime they want a “raise”, all they need to do is gather and chant.

    The “impartial” media arrives..

    The money literally falls from heaven, straight from our pockets and bank accounts.

    Of course its “wonderful”, they just got something else for nothing.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

    Love the “throw water on her” line from your 10 year old.

    A classic from the REAL future of America..

  7. Margaret in CT

    The news of the death of a police officer is always terrible. I’ve always thought that those who are on the front lines daily trying to keep us safe are the true representatives of the community. I don’t know the details of the auto accident that took this officer’s life, but I know that a simple traffic stop can end the life of an officer whose main motivation is to help the community. Our cities are full of self-important goons who can’t think of anything better to do with their gift of life than sell drugs and kill to protect their “territory”—as if they are deserving of property rights. Government handouts and liberal handwringers who make victims out of victimizers have gone a long way toward making turning our great cities into dangerous throwbacks to the era of the lawless wild west.

    Meanwhile, the kudzu vine that this health care bill has become continues to squeeze the life out of our capitalist system. The laughable “fix-it” bill that is before Congress is just another “anything goes” way of sneaking more power onto the plate of government, while making the individual more subservient. How easy is it to rescind an “executive order” on public funding of abortion? Just about as easy as it is to hand one down, I’m thinking. The republicans will have their hands full keeping the public riled up about a bill that won’t take full effect until 2013-14. It won’t be until the effect of the capital gains tax increase on small business becomes evident that the voters will realize that it isn’t just the guy with the Bentley who will be paying the tow on these bloated programs. It is imperative that we give the Obama administration the “overhaul” it deserves in November. Never give in!

  8. Larry
    My condolences to you. Thanks for all you do.

    What happened to the Cadillac health care tax? I didn’t hear if it was still in this bill or not.
    I wonder where the Canadians will go for major health care now?
    CNN was reporting yesterday that there next push will be the crap and tax. This will push what is left of our manufacturing jobs out of the country. Caterpillar announced Monday that is closing a plant in south Carolina. Wait! I thought the enactment of the stimulus, Caterpillar was going to rehire their laid off employees? Chock that up to another of his failed promises.

  9. I wonder just how many of those who support this law really understand that it won’t take full effect for 4 yrs. If they were told that they could lease a car for a 10 year term with payments starting immediately BUT were not allowed to drive it for 4 yrs. – how many would be stupid enough to go for it ? Yet, they’re supporting this horrendous law. Idiots !!

  10. Papa Bear,

    Thanks for the kind words.

    The “Caddy plan” is still in, doesn’t take effect until 2019. By then the unions will have “negotiated” another extension.

    Nice..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  11. Larry,

    The loss of your brother in arms will, and for his family, be in my prayers tonight. Few realize the dangers of the day-to-day in our police sacrifices. They are more often ridiculed or quetioned as enslavement ( inner city) rather than law enforcement. The men and women of our police departments throughout this country, for the most part, have a thankless job.

  12. My sympathies go out to you and your fellow brothers, the Thin Blue Line has gotten thinner this day. The police have always had a hard job, and I have always respected them. Despite low pay and the dangers and a public with an increasingly low opinion of civil authority these men and women continue to hold the gates against the thugs and barbarians. Pace In Requiem.

    Speaking of thugs, the idea of President-For-Life Obama makes my stomach churn. The hard times have arrived, and I fear the ‘Scary Times’ may soon be upon us. At some point people will decide that they have had enough and chose less civilized methods to ouste the Democrats. If we’ve learned anything from the incident in Dallas, it is that the Thin Blue Line will be the ones whom will suffer most as they try to maintain civil order in the face of an angry populace and an increasingly corrupt and tyrannical governmental authority.

    I pray this doesn’t come to pass, I do not want to see this country ripped apart by violence in a civil war between taxpayers and tax-spenders, producers and spongers, et al. I fear that if we are unable to begin putting things to right within the next year all heck is going to break loose. In a civil war there are no victors, only the dead and the survivors.

  13. blue state blues

    Another home run Larry. Congratulations for being the only pundit that articulated any problem with the provision that children will be covered up to the age of 26. Unbelievable that we have come to a place where 26 year olds are still considered children.

    But this legislation was never about health care. It’s about getting their arms around nearly 20% of our economy so they can continue to plunder the treasury. Adding 26 year olds to the plan increases the revenue at the expense of the working parents. Think about it; the 26 year olds are less likely to be paying because of their income level. The parents are much more likely to not qualify for Governemt Assistance so they will have to pay directly for little Tommy and little Tara.

    I continue to be disgusted with level of our political leadership and conservative pundits. They are, strategically and tactically, inept. Most egregious is that they could have been pummeling the Libs over the contents of Bill if they had taken the time to prepare to have their staffs rip it apart as soon as it was posted so that they could site chapter and verse. As it was the Libs were able to continue to lie about the contents with impunity without so much as a mumble of a retort. Two examples; the left vociferously denied that illegals are covered. No response from the numerous Republicans that had the opportunity to challenge this. They would have only have had to read a couple pages in the Bill to discover, in Section 152, that they covered illegals by stating “no one will denied coverage because of their PERSONAL CHACTERISTICS- code for ILLEGAL ALIENS! Second example; Congressmen Weiner from NY has been hitting the airways hammering Conservatives over their rhetoric on the Death Panels. Weiner sarcastically postures that “the committee will not be making coverage or benefit decisions on the individual level”. He goes on to say that the panel will only be investigating procedures at the macro level. Once again if our leadership and pundits would have read the first couple of pages of the Bill they would have known that a) decisions at the individual level are NOT excluded, giving the panel unfettered ability to prohibit any procedure at any level. And the panel will composed of 9 Presidential Appointments, 9 Appointments by the Comptroller of the Treasury (whoever that is) and another optional 8 appointments by President if he feels like it. And, believe or not, in all those appointments there is only a requirement for 1 doctor.

  14. Family,

    Check out “The Boo Hoo Boys” at TOTD:

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  15. Family,

    My thanks to all for the well wishes relative to the “officer down.”

    Larry

  16. Blue State,

    Thanks for calling me a “pundit”. I appreciate that.

    The “26 year old” analogy seems perfectly logical based on the liberal pattern of wanting ALL grown ups to be “children” in need of their special mothering..

    I’ve tried to cover a lot of aspects of this crime as I have written well over 12,000 words on this “topic”.

    ILLEGALS will be covered and I laid out how they will in “Accomplish Something Epic”. There I also spelled out how abortion WILL be funded though Stupak “believes” that it won’t..

    I’ve covered the realities of “rationing” due to the critical shortage JUST CREATED of doctors and nurses. Our doctors will now either be the mail order variety or English won’t even be their second language..

    Thanks for noticing, it really means a lot.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  17. You can start recall elections prior to their re-election bids, but you have to follow state laws to the letter, because the Congress member will fight to keep their seats, they will fight dirty. I don’t what state you live in but here is some information http://lugar.senate.gov/servi

    No one has ever challenged the federal government official before. The statement: the Constitution had set out numerous provisions, qualifications and requirements for Members of Congress to prevent conflicts of interest and to assure a certain degree of fealty to constituents, but did not give a Member’s constituency the authority to recall such a Member.

    Most of those in Congress have issues with conflict of interest, Speaker Pelosi family have invested heavily in the “green movement” and that cap and trade bill will earn them millions more. She also has made decision that affect her district in which her family has invested in StarKist and that Company headquarters is in her District in San Francisco. When a Bill came up to increase the minimum wage, she placed exempts for American Samoa when the tuna is caught and process. I third of the people who live there work for Del Monte, who owns StarKist Tuna. By placing an exemption, the price of a can would be much less than their competitor’s. Clearly that is a huge conflict of interest, yet she got away with it.

    They go on… The spirit of the Constitution is, perhaps, in no respect more remarkable than in the solicitude which it has manifested to secure the purity of the Legislature by that of the elements of its composition …. Yet, in the midst of all this anxious providence of legislative virtue, it has not authorized the constituent body to recall in any case its representative

    Members of Congress can invest in Companies that clearly could create more wealth from such an investment. Many in Congress are heavily invested in GE, who thanks to the Health care Reform bill will increase their wealth of many and than add the fact that GE is also a huge go green company, because of the Cap and Trade bill. Two bills on the Obama agenda, one just passed and now he’ll be working the crowds for green legislation, in addition to the Immigration Reform.

    I could only find that only few states allow for a recall of a senator-only 18 and the District of Columbia. If you’re not living in one of these states you have no constitutional rights to recall. It’s based on our State laws and not the federal government laws. Since the District of Columbia has no Senator, and only one Representative in Congress who does not have any voting rights.

    Determine the grounds for recall, misrepresentation could be one. You’ll need this information to make your case to the population but in 7 of the 18 states specific grounds are actually required. In these states, if your reasons don’t measure up, you won’t be allowed to proceed with the recall.

    Get signatures because you’ll need a petition to get a recall election. The number of signatures is usually a percentage of the voters at the last election but it does differs by state. Prepare for a politicians response. At some point during the process, the senator will be notified that a petition for recall is being circulated. He/She will then have a chance to respond to the allegations.

    Get voters to the recall election. Once the recall election is granted, alert the community and get them out to vote. The ballot will ask whether or not the senator should be recalled and the state may hold an election at the same time to elect the next person for that office. The 18 states allowing for recall are as follows: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington and Wisconsin. All we need to do is get 60 total. New Jersey has already started theirs against Robert Mendez and the other Senator is ill. Louisiana could get rid of Mary Landrieu.

    The seven states that need specific grounds for the recall are: In Alaska, Georgia, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Rhode Island, and Washington. I think ignoring our constituents would qualify, blocking communications to their representatives is a huge issue. If they know that a recall election is in the works, maybe that would be enough to have them switch their vote. The other eleven states that permit statewide recall, no grounds are required and recall petitions may be circulated for any reason. However, the target is permitted to submit responses to the stated reasons for recall.

    A website or a phone campaign are good ways to get your petition going. Going door-to-door is also an option although it is more time consuming than the other two. This is important since you only have a set number of days to obtain the correct number of signatures-anywhere from 30 to 180 days. Go to your state (or website) and see how long you are given to recall your Senator. 30 days just isn’t enough time in my opinion. You will be fighting an uphill battle to recall a U.S. Senator. No member of Congress has ever been recalled in the history of the United States, this will be another historic event in our Countries history.

  18. blue state blues

    Larry, you are a pundit by anybodies definition. Your analysis is as thorough and intelligent as anyone that I watch, listen to, or read with the exception of Charles Krauthammer (I can’t let you get a big head).

    On the Stupak issue; what a scam. They (BHO and Stupak) conspired to deceive not only the Republicans but their own party. No executive order can override a standing law. And health care reform became law yesterday. But give them credit; they are conducting an incredible battle and winning most skirmishes with superior tactics (legal or not) and strategy (Repubs have missed great opportunities by being ill prepared to engage).

  19. Eileen,

    Hope that you are feeling OK..

    An even bigger scam is the number of liberals who are HEAVILY invested in all of this “green jobs”, “enviro-friendly alternative fuel” BS..

    Obama chefly among them.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  20. Blue State,

    I love Charles. Brilliant man who struggles every day with his illness. A true hero.

    The Repubs have been behind the eight ball since January for some unknown reason.

    They HAD to know what this socialist was going to do.

    They almost don’t deserve to get back into power..

    The sign for me was when the same Party leaders that gave us McCain were out back into power.

    They CAN’T be worse than the liberals..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  21. Larry:

    My sincere sympathy to your and your brothers and sisters in blue. I will keep your fallen brother’s family and all of you in my prayers.

  22. blue state, the last I read about executive orders was that, after the signing of a Presidential Emergency Order (EO) and its publication in the Federal Register, if both the House and the Senate do not vote down the EO within 30 days after its publication in said Federal Register, then the EO becomes law, superceding the affected current law on that matter! (But perhaps someone can correct me on this matter, in case I am wrong. Sourced documentation would be nice to read about it. Eileen?)

    By the way, I read somewhere that not a single EO has ever been voted down by Congress since the FDR days!

    What a bunch of wimps!!

  23. May we also offer our sympathy to you on your fallen comrade. My husband is a retired Highway Patrolman and we can feel your pain and frustration.

    I thought it was worthy of a comment that when Pres. Obama was in Ohio singing the praises of his healthcare scheme, the woman he was attempting to honor because she was ill with cancer was not present at the rally. She in fact was in the HOSPITAL. Did no media people notice that she had NO HEALTH INSURANCE but was “in the HOSPITAL”. The irony of it all seems to be lost on the media’s fellow travelers does it not? The whole scenario is just pathetic.

  24. ONE doctor out of 26 appointments? I wouldn’t want to be that doctor or have him/her as my doctor. The tarnish from that job will follow his/her career to the grave and there will be a lot of end of life counseling on his part. Hmmm, I wonder why they don’t have beginning life discussions with pregnant families?

  25. Quixtop, CA.

    Larry,
    My condolences to you and your brothers in uniform. At one time a while back the patrol cars here used to say “to Protect and to Serve”. It demanded a respect that is missing now just like those words on the cruisers.
    Who was it that said “Words have consequences”? and “It’s the little things that count”?

    Pego, I agree
    From the very beginning I thought this was just a scam to get more money out of the working class since service was never withheld due to inability to pay.
    I won’t be surprised if next they’ll be coming with “Indigence Care Insurance” (for lack of a better euphemism) even with all the welfare, section 8, food stamps and all the rest of the programs already in the works.

  26. Hi Larry,

    Ghastly about the loss of yet another boy in blue.
    What happened?

    There will be many DeCarlo types demanding their newfound ‘rights’ and empowering themselves all over the place. A cousin of DeCarlo was declaring to all and sundry at election time that ‘Obama will pay our mortgages when he comes in’. She wasn’t far off. Pity the poor middle classes both in the US and the UK being bled to, literally, death.

    I hope Bart Stupid is proud of himself!

    Let the fight against these ghastly socialists continue through your excellent work!

    Yours

    Tamara

    Judge Napolitano laid it out pretty succinctly. No President has ever laid out an Exec Order that overrode a Standing Law. Rather, they issued EOs that filled gaps in laws. He gave two examples; Clinton issued and EO that no WH consulting contracts would awarded to non union contractors; when Bush came to power he issued an EO that WH contracts would go to the lowest responsible bidder thereby overriding Clinton’s EO but any standing law.

  28. blue state blues, your last phrase is a bit confusing at “thereby overriding Clinton’s EO but any standing law.” Did you leave out any words at “EO but any standing law”? It doesn’t make any sense the way you structured it! What did you mean to say?

    Later, I’ll give you a plain example where an EO clearly overrode law.

  29. Larry – as always thanx for the effort to rouse the sleeping masses. Pls receive my condolences on behalf of the officer and his loved ones. I have listened as my fellow Canaadians with whom I come in contact each day, express their frustration at the same crap here, and the leechers who exploit the system based on their “race”, ideology (ie Islam), homosexuality, or just plain leftist worldviews. The comment that comes up frequently when your issues are discussed, is “wonder how long before there’s a second US Civil War – between the producers (of wealth) and the parasites (leechers en masse)”. They say “at least they still have gun rights (which every collectivist gov’t fears ie insurrection)”.
    I don’t know what you may have heard but the leftist indoctrinaires in our capital (Ottawa), organised a near riot with thuggery to silence Ann Coulter (her speech was cancelled by the authorities despite what they claim, due to fears of injuries provoked by violence). Hopefully her speech gets made in her last stop in Calgary, as the first one went off fairly well in London ON.
    It’s a sad day I say, when freedom of speech, & expression of differing worldviews or opinions, is shut down because it’s not agreeable to those on the left, or those of Islam. Whatever happened to universities being, at least, a place for free and open discussion and dissemination of differing ideas?

  30. blue state blues

    Triviaman
    Sorry about that, it should have read ” thereby overriding Clinton’s EO but not any standing law”.

    I’m not an authority on this topic by any stretch. But I am confident in Napolitano’s expertise. And this was his firm positon on the legality of what Obama offered to Stupak. It’s not legal.

  31. Paul,

    Thanks for your kind words..

    As far as the universities go, “diversity” of thought means agree with the liberals.

    They occupy the moral high ground, all other throught is verboten..

    Canada is a beautiful country, I need to stop in again.

    Thanks as always,

  32. JJ, on your comment on the TOTD titled “The Boo Hoo Boys” about the federal workers being exempt from Obamacare: It reminded me of the news report I read just today:

    A USA Today analysis revealed that during the first 18 months of the recent recession, beginning December 2007, the number of federal employees with six-figure salaries shot up from 14 percent of the federal workforce to 19 percent. Defense Department civilian executives earning more than $150,000 went from 1,868 to more than 10,000, and the Department of Transportation, which had ONLY ONE PERSON earning $170,000 in December 2007, now has 1,690! The average federal salary is $71,206, compared with the private sector’s $40,331!

    Poor babies! We don’t want them to starve to death, now do we?

  33. Treating the ’26 yr old group’ as children was ‘payback’ for all the youngsters who voted for the fraud in the WH.

    Now, they should be consistent in treating them as ‘children’ by not allowing ( until reaching age 26 ) to do the following :

    1- Vote
    2- Buy or consume alcohol
    3- Buy a house or car
    4- Enter into a legal contract
    5- Get married
    6- Hold political office

    Hey, just a thought !

  34. The U.S. Constitution is absolutely clear without any ambiguity whatsoever in the fact that only Congress has the exclusive right to enact all law. They are the Legislative in the Federal Government.

    Article I, Section 1. “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    However, Presidents have repeatedly acted and continue to act treasonously in usurping the right to enact law by issuing Executive Orders under the guise of national emergencies.

    However, the only authority the President has on extraordinary occasions of national emergencies is to call Congress into an emergency session (Article II, Section 3).
    Any enactment of law by the Executive Office in a form such as an Executive Order is made in Excess of Jurisdiction and is by definition ‘Treason’.

    Up until Abraham Lincoln there were few if any orders by Presidents that would classify as legislation. Following Lincoln’s war against Southern Independence that caused the deaths of more than 620,000 citizens, untold misery and sunk the country to debt and control by bankers from which the Nation has never recovered there were an abundance of Executive Orders where the President assumed the Fascist role of lawmaker:

    Presidential Proclamations such as Washington’s proclamations, dispositions and recommendations such as the suggestion that a day of Thanksgiving take place on Thursday, November 26, 1789 were not legislation. Even Washington’s proclamation of April 22, 1793, for which he was severely criticized, merely threatened lawful prosecution, presumably under Maritime Law, of any U.S. citizen joining or aiding the war between Austria, Prussia, Sardinia, Britain and the Netherlands.

    Many, if not all of the problems we are currently experiencing in the U.S. can be traced back to treasonous Executive Orders. In 1933, Roosevelt literally ordered citizens to hand their gold to a private bank or else be sent to jail.

    Clinton’s War: On June 9, 1998, President Clinton issued EO 13088, which declared a national emergency, seized the U.S.-based assets of the government of Yugoslavia, and prohibited trade with that country as well as with the constituent republics of Serbia and Montenegro. In March 1999, without prior congressional authority, Clinton deployed and engaged the U.S. Air Force to participate in NATO’s bombing of Yugoslavia. He then deployed U.S. troops in neighboring Macedonia and Albania, merely informing Congress of his declaration of war on Yugoslavia. On April 13, 1999, Clinton issued EO 13119, designating Yugoslavia and Albania as a war zone. On April 20, 1999, Clinton issued EO 13120, ordering reserve units to active duty. On April 28, 1999, Congress overwhelmingly rejected a resolution to declare war against Yugoslavia and also rejected a concurrent resolution “authorizing” the continuation of the air war. Clinton continued the war, nevertheless. On May 26 and June 2, Clinton notified Congress that he had sent additional troops and aircraft to participate in the war. On June 5, he notified Congress that he had sent still more troops to the front. On June 10, NATO declared the war to be over. On June 12, Clinton informed Congress that he would deploy 7,000 U.S. troops to permanently occupy Yugoslavia.
    Presidents cannot declare War only Congress can so that means that Bill Clinton broke the law by declaring war without using Congress. But the Republicans were in charge in 1999, so why did they allow it to happen and challenge the President?

    Hitler turned Germany into a Nazi dictatorship through executive orders = Clearly the U.S. Presidents Paid Attention:

    * Executive Order 10995: All communications media are to be seized by the Federal Government. Radio, TV, newspapers, CB, Ham, telephones, and the internet will be under federal control. Hence, the First Amendment will be suspended indefinitely.

    * Executive Order 10997: All electrical power, fuels, and all minerals well are seized by the federal government.

    * Executive Order 10998: All food resources, farms and farm equipment will be seized by the government. You will not be allowed to hoard food since this is regulated.

    * Executive Order 10999: All modes of transportation will go into government control. Any vehicle can be seized.
    * Executive Order 11000: All civilians can be used for work under federal supervision.

    * Executive Order 11490: Establishes presidential control over all US citizens, businesses, and churches in time of “emergency.”

    Executive Order 11921: Provides that the President can declare a state of emergency that is not defined, and Congress cannot review the action for six months.

    * Executive Order 12919: Directs various Cabinet officials to be constantly ready to take over virtually all aspects of the US economy during a State of National Emergency at the direction of the president.

    * Executive Order 13010: Directs FEMA to take control over all government agencies in time of emergency. FEMA is under control of executive branch of the government.

    * Executive Order 12656: “ASSIGNMENT OF EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS RESPONSIBILITIES”, “A national emergency is any occurrence, including natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or other emergency that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the United States. Policy for national security emergency preparedness shall be established by the President.” This order includes federal takeover of all local law enforcement agencies, wage and price controls, prohibits you from moving assets in or out of the United States, creates a draft, controls all travel in and out of the United States, and much more.

    An article that I read “The Impact of Executive Orders on the Legislative Process: Executive Lawmaking?” to the Committee on Rules, Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process.

    I think you have to look at it this way. If a President breaks US Laws, they could then sign an EO that will allow him to hide the evidence about their own crime. See EO # 13233.

    Franklin Roosevelt was president for a little over twelve years. In that time, he issued 3,723 executive orders Franklin Roosevelt closed American banks and force citizens to turn in their gold to a private bank, the Federal Reserve Bank; he also ordered the detention of American citizens of Japanese descent these innocent citizens effectively had their possessions stolen by the State. FDR is arguably the most devastating President this country ever saw. He was brought out of retirement by the bankers after they caused the great depression by halving the value of the dollar then refusing to provide the banks with notes.

    1951, Harry Truman seized Strike threatened Steel Mills to prevent shortages that would endanger so-called “national security.” Supreme Court overturned this EO.

    Richard Nixon imposed wage and price controls in 1971

    Jimmy Carter, groomed by the secret Biderberg organization, created Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) –

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 13233
    Makes crimes, actions and records of President and former Presidents secret

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990
    Allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995
    Allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997
    Allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049
    Assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen-year period.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11490
    Assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen-year period

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921
    Allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when the President declares a state of emergency, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA’s Civil Security Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA’s role as a “new frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis.” FEMA’s powers were consolidated by President Carter to incorporate the:

    National Security Act of 1947
    Allows for the strategic relocation of industries, services, government and other essential economic activities, and to rationalize the requirements for work force, resources and production facilities.

    1950 Defense Production Act
    Gives the President sweeping powers over all aspects of the economy. Act of August 29, 1916
    authorizes the Secretary of the Army, in time of war, to take possession of any transportation system for transporting troops, material, or any other purpose related to the emergency.

    International Emergency Economic Powers Act
    Enables the President to seize the property of a foreign country or national. These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation in 1979

    The Military Commissions Act of 2006
    The bill governing the treatment of detainees, was adopted with lightning speed, and empowers the President to declare not just aliens, but also U.S. citizens ad “unlawful enemy combatants.” The bill also strips habeas corpus rights from ‘enemy combatants’.

    From what I understand, the purpose of an Executive Order was a temporary law until Congress finally created the law. Executive Orders are unlawful and AGAINST the Constitution. The President is the Executive branch, not part of the Legislative branch.
    William J. Olson testified before the Committee on Rules, Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process on October 27, 1999. You can read his statement here. http://www.libertyforlife.com/constitution/executive/us-impact_of_executive_orders_o.htm

    President’s have used this as an emergency provision, as everyday legislation, taking the power out of the hands of Congress and giving it to the Executive branch, basically usurping their powers, eventually they will become obsolete and antiquated. If Obama loses his parties majority, I am pretty sure he will bypass them and issue executive orders or use Departments in his Administration to push stuff through. He will not be stopped. He’s an arrogant, pompous, narcissistic SOB. He will not except no for an answer or have the public or Congress question his actions.

    I could only fine to instances where the Court reversed an EO, both were Democrats, Truman and Clinton were both were challenged in Court and overturned, it’s become too common so that everyone believes it’s Constitutional, when in reality, it’s unconstitutional, but all Presidents have used it to push their agenda on the public. Watch Obama use it to declare Marshall Law at election time.

    I could only find two other lawsuits filed by two separate physician organization by forcing all doctor’s to except government run health care. The lawsuit will continue I believe as some religious hospitals will be forced to perform abortions based on this Bill and they most likely will file lawsuits. This isn’t the end; it’s just the beginning of the challenges to the Bill.
    The head of Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit regarding any and all paperwork regarding the “special deals” made behind close doors through the Freedom of Information Act against the Obama Administration. As I said before Troy King, Alabama’s Attorney General has filed a separate lawsuit against the Obama Administration for the deal they made with Ben Nelson.

    I’ve been researching the lawsuits that have been filed by the states to the federal government and ObamaCare. They are using the 10th Amendment but over the decades, the states have relinquished their state rights by being paid off by the Federal Government. If they use this argument, the lawsuit will be rejected because the states did so willingly. The federal government of the United States has the power to regulate only matters delegated to it by the Constitution but because of the Commerce Clause, I don’t think the Supreme Court would not listen to the augments. There are better ones to choose.

    What I think they should be doing is going after the special deals/bribes. No one was in the room making these concessions who will volunteer to expose them, but we can use it to our benefit. The Ben Nelson concession is illegal because you cannot force other state to pay the tax debts of another state. There is also “real” evidence that shows it was an illegal deal. The administration’s person who made that deal is in trouble. If the individual is brought to Court, they can then make a deal if he/she exposes all the illegal deals.

    Stay with me… From 1791 up until 1937, the Supreme Court held a limited view of the Commerce Clause. Since then, liberal courts have basically allowed the federal government to do pretty much whatever they desire under the guise of “interstate commerce” while the 10th Amendment has been an afterthought. Ah, that all changed when, in 1995 and 2000, the SCOTUS invalidated federal laws against gun possession within 1,000 feet of schools and the Violence against Women Act.

    Now that Obama and Democrats in Congress have vastly overreached the powers authorized in Article I, Section 8, at least 14 States have sued the federal government. When the Supreme Court rules on Obamacare, not only could it invalidate the law, but also it could roll back 70 years of unconstitutional rulings contradictory with the Founder’s intent. If they can show the contradiction of the 10th Amendment, by using this method as an argument against ObamaCare. I know Kennedy is a fence sitter, but I have hope that sanity will prevail.

    My bet is that Scalia will write the opinion of the Court with Thomas, Roberts, Alito, and possibly Kennedy would be joining them and they will come up with new rulings.

    Wouldn’t that be grand? Not only will Democrats suffer massive blow-back and losses in the Legislature and Presidency in the next two election cycles, but the Judiciary might just give Progressives a huge setback to their big governmental socialist agenda. Think of how many rulings would be overturned when re-challenged. Roe vs. Wade overturned and the woman who started it all, regrets her decision so she won’t be questioning that laws reversal. Maybe they will be emboldened to tell Obama, our fearful leader, prove you are eligible to be President. If he refuses, then he can no longer be President. Especially when I found out the woman, who verified his eligibility was forced to verify two different copies of his birth certificate using her notary stamp, since every time they use them they need to record the information in a diary, and Pelosi was there. The one that had all the information was sent to Hawaii and is in hiding somewhere in the Governor’s hands and the remaining 49 got a different copy with less information about his birth. Why would that be?

    I hope that answers your questions, the President does not have the powers to issue lasting laws, only temporary laws, in an emergency. So what was Obama’s emergency regarding the abortion issue? (other then pass a Bill that no one wanted and most of Congress never read it as we watch them try to explain items listed in the Bill).

    Triviaman, does that answer your question?

  35. Sorry I used the wrong example the it wasn’t the Ben Nelson deal, it was the bribing of the Joe Sestak that they have the evidence against Rahm Emanuel who has been said was the person that put that deal together. Sorry, I had a brain fart.

    Condolences as well Larry!
    On the lighter side did you know that Obama in Indonesia means pathological liar? See proof that liberal/socialists have a brain here:
    http://dancingczars.wordpress.com/2010/03/27/harvard-scientists-discover-liberals-have-a-brain/

  37. Thanks, Eileen, for that exhaustive – and EXHAUSTING! – discussion on Executive Orders, etc. Too long & detailed for my poor pea-size brain, but did read bits & snippets, etc.

    One thing seems to be confusing: I forget who (of the various “family” posters) first used “EO” as meaning “EMERGENCY Order,” but then it was picked up by Eileen & others and referred to as “EXECUTIVE Order.” My understanding from earlier discussions of the subject is that Obama – like Bush & Clinton before him – issued a totally fungible “Executive Order” that maintained the current ban on federal funding of abortions and, by implication, forbade the lifting of that ban. However, Wonder Boy can rescind his EO at any time – which Stoopid Stoopak must have known all along. What a creep – and what a paid of lairs the both of them (POTUS & Stewpack) are!!

  38. Ooops – by bad: Meant to call Dr. Evil & SS “a pair of liars!’ My mental spell-check must be down….

  39. So, Obamascare calls for spending $10 billion to hire 16,500 IRS agents . Why does a healthcare law require IRS agents – will they become medical personnel, and therefore do “double duty” which will supposedly save money? Or , will they be law enforcers and go after people who don’t have the ‘proper’ health coverage and/or those whose coverage is ‘too good’ ? How, exactly, is this going to be “good for the American people” ?

    How does this begin to make sense?

    Many doctors state that they won’t be able to afford to continue practicing medicine, especially with the planned reduction in medicare re-imbursement. However, in areas that do not have sufficient doctors , the medicare re-imbursements will be increased. Now, with the increase of the approx. 32million who will be covered, and the loss of the above doctors, won’t the ENTIRE country have insufficient medical coverage? Then, won’t that necessitate an increase in the medicare re-imbursements, and if so, how will that save money ?

    What am I missing here ?

  40. Unfortunately the lamestream media only wants to report on the corrupt cops and not the heroes who protect us every day. The ratio is like 90% good cops, 10% bad/corrupt cops.

    One of my cousins is a police officer in Virgina, about 15 years ago he was shot, pretty badly, he was also a member of the national guard. Those fellow guard and police members, donated their time and money by helping his family as he struggled for his life, they donated blood and rally the people of his town. People looked after his children and wife. Women made the kids meals and gave his wife a shoulder to cry on.

    Luckily, he did survive, he had a long recovery and rehabilitation. He has recovered from those injuries and took an early retired. He started his own private security firm.

    You have my condolences at your loss of a fellow policeman and I do know how you feel. I pray that God looks after his family and all of those who protect us every day, whether they are military, state, local and federal officers who certainly do not get the respect that they deserve.

  41. On another note, I searched the internet to find out what the Stupak 11 got in return for agreeing with and voting yes on ObamaCare.

    Here is the complete list and who got what.

    * The day after Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) and ten other House members compromised on their pro-life position to deliver the necessary yes-votes to pass health care reform, the “Stupak 11″ asked for more than $4.7 billion in earmarks – an average of $429 million worth of taxpayer money for each lawmaker.

    http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tcGdyJ-pVT-7ZfqJby4p2Jw&output=html

    For Stupak, he got a helluva lot more than the $750,000 for the three small airports in his District. He requested $578.9 million, it doesn’t say if he got the total request. I thought we were told there would be no more earmarks. I guess the Democrats found another word for them, Appropriation.

  42. As I hear the sames stories over & over – and then a whole round of new ones, for the first time in my adult life (and I’m now a senior cit), I’m seriously depressed with the level of corruption of far too many of the Members of Congress and Senators! I used to think that there were only a few – but now I see that the proces itself is corruption through & through, and that these career politicians are the very antithesis of the concept of citizen statesman/representative that our Founders envisioned. It has become such a corrupt system, that only a relative handful can humanly escape the temptations and pitfalls that serving in Congress (both Houses) now entails. Frankly, as that idiot, Jeannine Garafolo, famously said, “We are doomed – we are all doomed!!”

  43. The Heritage Foundation held a live webcast where Republican Congressman Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) gave a speech and answered a few questions. It was an interesting session. During the speech I sent in about 5 questions. He answered a total of 6 or 7 and he answered two of mine. The first was… Should the Republicans take back the House and Senate will the party keep to it’s conservative principals? Have they learned their lesson from 2006 election?

    He said he believed they had learn their lesson and have to win back the Americans who felt betrayed. The second question was… If a majority of the public want term limits will you support that initiative?

    He went through a long explanation, saying the Republicans tried before to pass this legislation but never had enough of a majority to pass the Bill in both the House and Senate. It will be up to the Republican leadership to push that through. blah, blah, blah.

    If the public wants term limits I don’t think our politicians want to limit their time in Congress. Then, we will need to push that agenda if the Republicans take back the House and Senate.

  44. Eileen – Good questions – and glad you were able to ask those questions of Rep. Ryan, but his evasive answer to the very hot-button issue of term limits is also indicative of the career politician class – the ones we are trying to replace! Ryan is one of the so-called “good guys,” but he and EVERYONE currently serving – and those who will serve in future – need to know that their time in DC is definitely LIMITED to whatever WE the People demand be the outside limits of serving. Period. Of course, this will be a VERY tough nut to crack!

  45. The bottom line is that President O-Hole needs to not be the president. He is counting on continuing to move on everything at a record pace that the public won’t be able to properly track his movements. Let’s not fall into that trap. If nothing else, pushing out large numbers of Democrats this fall will at least neutralize this guy, making him unable to get his “stuff” passed.

  46. Family,

    Best wishes for a very Happy Easter.

    And, please keep the dust bunnies out of the Easter baskets !

  47. Happy Easter Larry and Family.

    Don’t worry about the dust bunnies in the Easter basket. If there is any chocolate in my basket, they won’t get a chance to form.
