The Phony White House Charm Offensive

March 12, 2013

Not only did the White House disavow the GOP’s 10-year budget plan put forth by House budget chief Rep. Paul Ryan, the White House will not release its budget until early April, a pattern true to the form displayed over Barack Obama’s time in office.

110601_ryan_blasts_obama_ap_328White House press secretary Jay Carney verbally attacked Ryan’s budget, saying it would punish middle-class Americans, cut taxes on the wealthy, and “the burden is doubled or even tripled on everyone else.”

Carney claimed Ryan’s “voucherization” reform of federal programs, including Obamacare and Medicare, “does nothing to deal with the fundamental problem, which is rising health care costs, but actually exacerbates that problem.”

These statements are in direct conflict with Obama’s heavily publicized attempt to convince the public he is trying to work with GOP legislators, which includes dinner with a group of GOP Senators, lunch with Ryan and two visits to Capitol Hill.

The real hope is that Obama’s efforts will boost his poll ratings, which have fallen noticeably since Obama tried to stop sequester cuts to the 2013 federal budget through demonization of their effect and by impugning the GOP’s motives.

Ryan’s plan is actually a reduction in spending, and does not cut federal spending at all.  “On the current path, we’ll spend $46 trillion over the next 10 years [but] under our proposal, we’ll spend $41 trillion,” Ryan wrote in a Wall Street Journal article. “On the current path, spending will increase by 5 percent each year. Under our proposal, it will increase by 3.4 percent.”

The GOP would be well advised to proceed at their own risk with every one of their senses on full caution mode.

The current Oval Office occupant has displayed disingenuous intent on more than one occasion and there is no real evidence to assume that his “charm offensive” is anything other than a change in tactics.  The destruction of his political opposition remains the underlying strategy.

Stand with Rand

March 7, 2013

Some of Senator Rand Paul’s (R, KY) colleagues were left unimpressed by Wednesday’s filibuster.  The day following Paul’s action, Senators John McCain (R, AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R, SC) criticized him, saying Paul was doing a “disservice” to the debate about drones.randpaulfilibuster

When was the last time either McCain or Graham raised concerns over the White House’s use of drones?

“I don’t think what happened yesterday was helpful to the American people…What we saw yesterday is going to give ammunition to those who say the rules of the Senate are being abused,” McCain said.

Since when is proper use of the Senate filibuster abuse?  McCain seems more concerned with getting along with “progressives” in the Senate than preserving the United States Constitution.

Paul was attempting to get the Obama administration to confirm it will not kill non-combatant Americans within the United States.  Graham apparently viewed that as a farcical question.

“I do not believe that question deserves an answer,” Graham stated.

What question would Graham consider worthy of reply?  Do assurances from the DOJ that they will not selectively ignore constitutionally protected rights of American Citizens to judicial due process not qualify?

http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/inside-politics/2013/mar/7/graham-mccain-blast-paul-filibuster/

Concerns over the administration’s drone program led lawmakers to question Attorney General Eric Holder about legal justification for targeting American Citizens.   Similar concerns prompted Paul to begin his filibuster, demanding answers from the White House.  Paul said he would relent only if the Obama administration stated publically that it will not target Americans on American soil.

The administration apparently believed it could kill Americans it suspected of having terrorist ties without putting them on trial.

Concerns over protection of due process for American Citizens are bipartisan.

“You can hear almost unanimous concern about transparency and wrestling with how to move forward here in a way that protects both our constitutional liberties and our security as a nation,” Senator Christopher A. Coons (D, DE) told Holder.

Under careful examination by Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX), Holder repeatedly stated U.S Citizens on American soil were not “appropriate” targets for executions without due judicial process.  Cruz said that was an insufficient answer.  “You keep saying ‘appropriate.’ My question isn’t about propriety. My question is about whether something is constitutional or not,” said Cruz.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/6/rand-paul-filibusters-brennan-nomination-cia-direc/

McCain and Graham aside, Rand Paul, Christopher Coons and Ted Cruz are on the right side of the debate.

Since McCain and Graham apparently believe it is most important for them to get along with “progressives”, no matter the cost to the Rights of American Citizens at home, their criticism of Paul is out of hand.

Let them face the repercussions in their next election.
Revolution is coming.

Orwellian Inauguration 2013

January 21, 2013

Except for the date, 1984, George Orwell had it right.

Replete with doublespeak, innuendos, and outright falsehoods, the Inauguration speech given by Barack Hussein Obama to launch his second term was a verbal déjà vu of the 2009 $787 billion stimulus package…a wish list for “progressives.”

The full blown Orwellian hypocrisy was on clear display before Obama even opened his mouth.1984george-orwell

Beginning with an invocation where the United States was describes as “One nation…indivisible…with liberty and justice for all.”  What happened to “under God” in that invocation?  When does one give an invocation at a presidential inauguration where the words of the American Pledge of Allegiance are intentionally edited to omit the word “under God”, and why?

That this glaring omission would be immediately followed by a magnificent rendition of The Battle Hymn of the Republic was truly ironic.

Then the Oval Office occupant, who happens to be the most politicized, divisive, partisan human in Washington DC, who has openly launched multi-pronged assaults upon the U.S. Constitution, publically committed perjury by taking the oath of office.

Then, the utter hypocrisy in his inaugural address was spoken before a gathering roughly one third the size of the 2009 inaugural crowd.

Obama preached that: “Together, we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play.”

Who decides what fair play is?  Who decides what rules will ensure competition?

The American free market Capitalist system and free people making decisions that are in their best interests ensure competition and define fair play, not government interference.

He continued: “For we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. We believe that America’s prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. We know that America thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work; when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship.”

A people, freed from the shackles of needless government involvement, built America into the most inventive, prosperous, generous and powerful nation in world history.  No matter how long or how often the Marxist mantra of equality is repeated, those recitations do not change that a people free to pursue their happiness within a free market Capitalist system have a better chance of achieving prosperity than do unionized government sector clerks working for a federal ministry.

Obama pronounced: “For we remember the lessons of our past, when twilight years were spent in poverty, and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few. We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss, or a sudden illness, or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.”

When twilight years were spent in poverty?  Before big government socialist programs, which now account for over fifty percent of federal spending by a government that is over $16 trillion in debt and which borrows over forty percent of every dollar spent, one’s twilight years were spent living with family, who took better care of their elders with far more love and concern than is possible from an impersonal government bureaucracy where the elderly individual is little more than a number.

When parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn?  Disabled children are loved and cared for by their families.  When families looked for help, they looked to churches and private charities.  They did not look to a bureaucrat more concerned with their own salaries and benefits than with the public they allegedly “served.”

obama speechHe went on: “We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition; we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries – we must claim its promise. That is how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure – our forests and waterways; our croplands and snowcapped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That’s what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared.”

This is where another item on the “progressive” laundry list comes to light.  Here Obama reveals that based upon the junk science propagandizing “climate change” mythology, the disastrous waste of money on green energy companies and the lining of his political supports’ pockets at taxpayer’s expense will both continue unabated.

A true display of “progressive” doublespeak followed: “We will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law.”

Through the strength of arms?  This coming from a politician who, despite the fact that Islamofascists are waging war on America, is bent on retreating from the battlefield, unilateral nuclear disarmament and reducing national defense?

Rule of law?  This from a fringe leftist career politician who chooses which laws his Attorney General enforces based upon their partisan political agenda?  Who ignores legally passed laws while violating the U.S. Constitution by dictating his own through Executive Order?

On foreign policy the newspeak was on crystal clear display: “America will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe; and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad, for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world than its most powerful nation.”

America will remain the anchor of strong alliances?  This from someone who upon taking office shipped the bust of Winston Churchill back to Great Britain and who displays open disdain for Israel and its leaders?  Who continues to put Israel at existential risk by insisting on negotiating with an inflexible Iranian theocracy committed to Israel’s destruction?  Who rushed the withdrawal from Iraq, thereby squandering the blood, treasure and sacrifice spent to create another ally in the Middle East, and is rushing withdrawal from Afghanistan, risking that the Taliban and Al Qaeda will fill the vacuum?

Then, a true display of the “progressive” agenda for the next four years was displayed with: “For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.  Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity; until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm.”truth-george-orwell-1984

Our wives, mothers and daughters earn a living equal to their efforts?  This coming from a White House who’s underpaying of female staff is public knowledge?

Promoting gay marriage, attacking voter registration laws, amnesty through immigration reform and disarmament of Americans through gun control will be on the Oval Office check list.

Then the ultimate in hypocrisy was revealed: “For now decisions are upon us, and we cannot afford delay. We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.”

We cannot mistake absolutism for principle?  This from quite possibly the most inflexible absolutist in American political history?  The real crisis lies in “progressives” mistaking Americans standing on American principles for absolutism.

We cannot substitute spectacle for politics?  This from a non-stop political campaigner who is the poster child for photo-ops?

We cannot treat name-calling as reasoned debate?  This from a rigid political ideolog who lectures and scolds his political opponents over their choice of words but remains absolutely silent when his political brethren use far more incendiary, unreasoned and divisive words?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/barackobama/9816372/Barack-Obama-Inaugural-Address-2013-full-text.html

There was nothing about the economy.  There was virtually nothing about job creation, deficit or debt reduction.

This was a declaration that once again the era of big government is at hand.

Unlike the great inaugural speeches of the past, this was not a call for national unity, but a call to arms for his “progressive” allies.

With this speech Barack Hussein Obama ensures that America will remain the divided States.  He confirms that compromise in any way shape or form is at the bottom of his list of priorities.  As was the case in his first term, the destruction of his political opposition remains his primary concern.

Illogical Extremism of the left

January 18, 2013

Recent events prove beyond reasonable doubt that members of the institutionalized “progressive” left are more than enthusiastic about attacking10-big-killers guns and gun owners.  True to their Alinsky roots, they are ready, willing and eager to demonize gun owners and Second Amendment proponents by disparagingly using the term “gun lobby” to describe them.  It is no secret that they are openly hostile to the Constitutionally protected Right of Americans to keep and bear arms.

They are also primed and ready when it comes to attacking Capitalism.  “progressives” persistently promote the notions that guns kill people and that Capitalism is inherently greedy and corrupt.

By applying this illogic to other situations, it would be required to conclude that computers keyboards are responsible for misspelled words and silverware causes obesity in America.

It would be quite entertaining to hear a “progressive” attempt to relay, in minute detail, the sequence of events on that monumental day when an unattended gun jumped up all by itself and shot an innocent child.

It would be equally fascinating to hear a “progressive” convey exactly how an economic system, without the benefit of human involvement, engaged in illicit price gouging, ponzi schemes or criminal quid quo pro transactions.

The fact of the matter is, the way a gun shoots anything is by a human being picking it up, aiming it and pulling the trigger.  The problem is not the gun, it is with the killer behind the gun.

In similar fashion, the only way any economic delivery system leads to unlawful behavior is through the involvement of the criminal mind.

The answers are not found in gun control or ending Capitalism.  The answer is to catch the perpetrators of the crimes and lock them away from society.

“progressive” Gun Control

January 16, 2013

The Second Amendment is not about hunting.  It is about the Right of the American people to prevent the likes of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, bho gun controlDiane Feinstein, Andrew Cuomo et al from obtaining unrestrained power.

It is about the power of the people to prevent their being rounded up and put in gulags and/or concentration camps.

The American people are not demanding gun control.  NRA membership has increased by a quarter of a million in the past month.

The American people are demanding that the tyrannical government of Barack Hussein Obama and his “progressive” co-conspirators back away from their ongoing assault on the God given Rights protected by the United States Constitution.

A “progressive” government tyrannical enough to empower the Attorney General of the United States of America to put automatic weapons in the hands of Mexican drug cartels so discovering those guns at the scene of Mexican crimes would justify gun control in the United States is fully capable of the most egregious actions imaginable.  There is a high probability that the recent outbreak of mass shootings have been tactically planned and carried out as part of the long term “progressive” strategy to disarm Americans.

Gun control advocates repeatedly ask questions like: “Why should ordinary people be allowed to own semi-automatic weapons?”  “Ordinary people” are the people referred to in the preamble of the U.S. Constitution as We the People.  We the People are not “allowed” to own semi-automatic weapons.  It is the Right of the people to keep and bear arms; a Right that “shall not be infringed.”

For a tyrannical “progressive” government, which possesses the most deadly weapons in the history of human civilization to dictate that We the People cannot own the weapons necessary to prevent that very same tyrannical “progressive” government from imposing the will of an oligarchy of self-imagined, self-appointed intellectual elites upon an opposing population is as much proof of out of control un-restrained government power any Patriotic American needs to say NO.

Not one step further.

Not the passage of one more unread bill.  Not one more day without a budget.  Not one more borrowed dollar spent on “progressive” big government socialist programs.

Stop it.  Stop it now.

You have been warned.

Revolution is coming.

It’s Still Government Spending, Stupid

December 27, 2012

Barack Obama, who has stayed in continuous campaign mode since birth, persists in insisting House Republicans submit to his demands to hike tax rates on “the rich.”  If Republicans do note cede to his decrees, Obama will let everyone’s tax rates go up and cut obama_liesone trillion dollars from the budget, half of which will come from defense spending.

If he were truly interested in solving America’s fiscal troubles, this would not be his position.

Most definitely not…

Obama carries on with his nonstop campaign-style appearances, claiming that higher tax rates will reduce the U.S. deficit and cut the national debt.

That is categorically complete, total, absolute, utter fantasy.

The amount collected by the IRS from Obama’s long lusted for tax hikes would fund U.S. federal spending for fewer than nine days.

For members of the self-imagined, self-appointed “progressive” intellectual elite: That is less than two weeks.

At current spending levels the U.S. federal government borrows forty six cents of every dollar it spends.  Despite the fact that 2013
has not yet begun, through the first two months of fiscal year 2013 the U.S. is already approximately $300 billion in debt.

The biggest drivers of U.S. deficit spending are Medicare, Social Security, “safety net” programs and interest on the debt.  The looming short and long term costs of Obamacare have yet to fully reveal themselves, but given the U.S. federal government’s track record one can safely predict that it will be far more than what taxpayers were told and will rape their wallets for billions every year.

In other words, under the White House’s current “progressive” policies, it is only going to get worse, not better.

obama_pelosi_reidThe Oval Office occupier and his “progressive” Party Pravda press secretaries willfully ignore and refuse to mention that under the current tax rates, revenues are up by thirty billion dollars over last year.

Obama keeps claiming that raising tax rates on America’s highest earners, those who already pay forty percent of the revenue to the IRS, will be the silver bullet that solves America’s financial woes.  He continues blaming today’s deficits on his predecessor.

During his time in office, George W. Bush’s highest deficit was $438 billion.  Obama’s government has posted a $1 trillion plus deficit for four straight years.  2013 will make five.  America’s fiscal gloom and the looming “fiscal cliff” “crisis” are the result of “progressive” spending on wasteful big government socialist programs.

That is the reason.  Any other claim is pure unadulterated political snake oil.

America’s debt and deficit problems can only be resolved by cuts in spending.  When the United States receives another credit downgrade, it will be because of “progressives”, not Conservatives.  America needs to cut spending, not increase taxes.

Anyone who says differently should be in organic fertilizer distribution…or is that redistribution?

Warning: This show is addictive

Iran Gets Missile Shield

December 21, 2012

Barack Obama’s administration, despite all the blood and treasure America spent in Iraq, somehow managed to fail in reaching a Status of Forces Agreement with the Iraqi government.  That means that the United States, after overthrowing Saddam Hussein, and freeing a ahmadinejad-shaking-hands-with-bho-nuke-explosiancountry uniquely located on the most strategically important piece of real estate in the Middle East does not have strategic residual forces within Iraq.

That failure has allowed Iran to fly freely over Iraqi airspace, prolonging the Syrian civil war by delivering arms to Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad.  Month after month, nothing has been done by the Obama administration to help the people of Syria while Assad has butchered them.

Could it be that the plan all along has been to enable Iran’s assistance of Syria so Iran could get their hands on a sophisticated, mobile missile defense shield, thereby tipping the balance of power in the region away from Israel towards Iran?

http://video.foxnews.com/v/2046964026001/intel-reveals-irans-payback-for-supporting-assad-regime/

That Israel is destined to strike at the existential threat posed to them by a nuclear armed Iran demands the question: Has the Obama administration been actively working on behalf of Iran’s Islamofascist regime, enabling them to obtain the tools needed to ensure an Israeli attack is incapable of eliminating their nuclear capabilities?

Is this part of Obama being “more flexible” on missile defense now that the election is over?

Just a little something to think about next time you hear Obama and/or whichever weak, dishonest  enabler he names as Secretary of State to replace “Hillary-the disaster going someplace to happen” (read: John Kerry) bragging about how through the UN, America has imposed “crippling economic sanctions” on Iran.

Love. Early American Style.

Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste…Ever

December 17, 2012

While speaking at a Dec. 16 prayer vigil for victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, Barack Obama, ever the divisive political creature with a burning transformative agenda, could not pass on the opportunity to politicize the event:

“In the coming weeks, I’ll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens, from law enforcement, to mental health obama ctprofessionals, to parents and educators, in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this, because what choice do we have? We can’t accept events like this as routine.

Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?

Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”

Forget about the shock, grief, anguish, pain and suffering of the survivors.  Never mind that the vigil was intended to honor the innocent victims, not promote Obama’s ardent agenda to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

Never let a crisis go to waste…ever.

And to think, there are still people who wonder why America is so divided.

Congratulations Barack…Saul Alinsky would be proud of you.

If Obama is truly devoted to preventing such tragedies, how about he cease and desist being the most divisive American political figure
of the 21st century?  Anyone who is paying attention knows he is leading a group of like-minded politicians whose strategy is “divide and conquer.”

If Obama is honestly concerned with preventing the routine slaughter of children in schools, schools will no longer be gun free zones.  The criminally inclined, mentally deranged people who have perpetrated these shootings clearly have not respected these gun free zones, including America’s shopping malls and other public gathering places.

For “progressives” to use these tragedies as a thinly disguised attempt to alter or abolish Second Amendment Rights for free American Citizens is further evidence that they are attacking, not defending the Constitution of the United States of America.  Why is it not surprising that those who desire a “fundamental transformation” of America would be derelict in their duties while ignoring their oath of office?

Here is a clue for Obama and his high falutin, fancy pants, smooth talking, words parsing “progressive” Ivy League chums:

The Second Amendment was not written so 21st century Americans could go deer hunting.

America’s Constitution secured the Right of the People to keep and bear arms as the last line of defense against tyrannical government.  Having just fought against and defeated King George’s military, America’s founders were keenly aware of the need for all Citizens to be prepared in defense of their Liberties.  It matters not whether tyrannical government is imposed by a foreign crown as it was in patrick_henry_give_me_liberty_or_give_me_deaththe 1700s, or from Washington DC, as is being done today.  Tyrannical government is tyrannical government.

As Patrick Henry said during debate in the Several State Conventions on the adoption of the U.S. Constitution:

“Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?  Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress?  If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”

Barack Obama and his fellow “progressives” are not interested in defending the God given, constitutionally protected Rights of American Citizens.  They are interested in ensuring that “progressives” gain a firm, final grasp on unstrained power.

America had better wise up.  Fast.

Because of groupthink and a poverty of imagination, the story of American Freedom and of American exceptionalism may end far too soon in a tragic, final chapter.

Green Energy Equals American Decline

December 10, 2012

greenenergyA Chinese auto company having just won the auction for bankrupt A123 Systems, one of Barack Obama’s car battery darlings that received a $249 million grant from the Obama government further illustrates why the White House playing capital investor with taxpayer funds is a very bad idea.

When Obama took office in January 2009, five million “green” jobs were promised, yet nowhere near that number have been created. The companies Obama invests in keep failing because Americans do not want to purchase inefficient energy at inflated prices.

Furthermore, eighty percent of the green loans, loan guarantees, and grants given out by Department of Energy went to Obama campaign backers:

•SunPower, after receiving $1.5 billion from DOE, is reorganizing, cutting jobs.

•First Solar, after receiving $1.46 billion from DOE, is reorganizing, cutting jobs.

•Solyndra, after receiving $535 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Ener1, after receiving $118.5 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Evergreen Solar, after receiving millions of dollars from the state of Massachusetts, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•SpectraWatt, backed by Intel and Goldman Sachs, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Beacon Power, after receiving $43 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Abound Solar, after receiving $400 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Amonix, after receiving $5.9 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Babcock & Brown (an Australian company), after receiving $178 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Solar Trust for America, after receiving a $2.1-billion loan guarantee from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

•Nevada Geothermal, after receiving $98.5 million from DOE, warns of potential defaults in new SEC filings.

“progressives” continue to promote global warming, or to use the most recent and now more popular vernacular: climate change.  The obama-magic-solar-energy-beansnarrative is that planet earth is experiencing a warming climate due primarily to the emission of man-made ”greenhouse gases”.  The most often and specifically referenced gas is carbon dioxide.

According to Matt Rosenberg at Atmosphere Composition, the earth’s atmosphere is composed primarily of Nitrogen and Oxygen. Together, the two comprise about 99% of the gas in the atmosphere. Here’s a listing of the key components of the atmosphere:

Nitrogen – 78.084%

Oxygen – 20.95%

Argon – 0.934%

Carbon Dioxide – 0.036%

Neon – 0.0018%

Helium – 0.0005%

Methane – 0.00017%

Hydrogen – 0.00005%

Nitrous Oxide – 0.00003%

Ozone – 0.000004%

In addition, water vapor is variable but typically makes up about 1-4% of the atmosphere.

“progressives” would have the world’s population believe that fluctuations in a trace element of earth’s atmosphere (0.036%) caused by the burning of fossil fuels like petroleum and coal has resulted in such catastrophic events as the melting of earth’s polar ice caps and glaciers.  They contend this will lead to the flooding of coastal areas and the extinction of species.

obama-failed-solar-companiesA nation of over 300 million people, which currently derives less than 5 percent of its energy from “alternatives” cannot expect to put an immediate end to the use of fossil fuels.  This could quite possibly bring the nation’s ailing economy to a grinding halt, resulting in a massive loss of business, leading to a dramatic decrease in already insufficient tax revenue and an extremely painful increase in unemployment.

Is putting an end to the use of petroleum worth the accompanying reduction in the living standards and the overall prosperity of a nation?  Is it worth the resulting ballooning of America’s national debt and further devaluation of its currency?

“progressives” feel an ongoing, compulsive need to force America to accept their “green energy solution”. Proposals made by the current administration and fellow “progressives” indicate a desire to achieve this end at all costs come what may.  Stiffer regulations on auto emissions and mileage, EPA regulations on energy providers, resistance to development of domestic natural resources, deficit government spending on inefficient and uncompetitive solar, wind, tide and bio-fuel technology dominate the political landscape.

America’s public and industrial infrastructure is based on the use of petroleum, natural gas and coal.  Nearly everyone drives a vehicle that burns gasoline or diesel fuel. Public transportation relies on fossil fuels as well. Natural gas, heating oil and coal are used in furnaces to heat homes and places of business. Coal and nuclear power generate electricity, which powers countless devices; the uses of which are taken for granted every day. Coal, natural gas and petroleum products power American’s industrial complex, the base of the American economic engine. America’s economy depends heavily on the existing sources of power. These methods of providing and consuming energy are all deeply ingrained into America’s business, manufacturing and home life.obama-green-energy-failures

Why does America continue spending hundreds of billions of dollars on foreign energy while America has undeveloped energy? Why not keep those billions of dollars at home, in America’s cash starved economy?

At a time when millions of Americans are looking for work, the economy is starving for liquid capital, and the IRS is in desperate need of revenue why not take advantage of America’s wealth of natural resources? Why not give Americans jobs drilling for oil and natural gas or digging for coal? Why not put people to work building refineries and power plants? Why not give energy employees jobs delivering gas, coal and natural gas to consumers? How many peripheral jobs will be created in the process? For every new oil well, power plant, refinery or mine there will be new infrastructure built, followed by grocery stores, restaurants, shopping malls, housing, schools, and everything else everyday Americans need for their lives.

All generated by the only force capable of powering America’s economic recovery: the private sector.

And none of those jobs could possibly be moved overseas.

It’s the Spending, Stupid

December 7, 2012

Barack Obama, who seemingly has remained in campaign mode since first entering public life, continues to insist House Republicans obey his command to hike tax rates on upper income earners.  If Republicans do note cede to his demands, Obama is willing to let everyone’s taxes go up and to cut one trillion dollars from the budget, a disproportionate amount of which will come from defense.

Were Obama sincerely interested in solving America’s fiscal dilemma, this would not be his stance.deficit

He continues to make campaign appearances claiming that these higher tax rates are needed to lower the U.S. deficit and cut the national debt.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The amount of revenue collected by the IRS as a result of such a tax rate increase would fund U.S. federal spending for less than nine days.

According to the latest data from the Congressional Budget Office, at current spending levels the federal government is borrowing forty six cents of every dollar it spends.  Through the first two months of fiscal year 2013 the government is already almost $300 billion in debt.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/dec/7/government-borrows-46-cents-every-dollar-it-spends/print/

Medicare, Social Security and interest on the debt are the biggest drivers of the debt.  The true costs of Obamacare have yet to be revealed, but given the U.S. federal government’s track record it is safe to predict that it will be far more expensive than projected and finish in the red every year.

Collecting eight days’ worth of spending from upper level incomes will do nothing to affect the level of spending on any of these programs.

Additionally, Obama willfully ignores that at current tax rates, revenues are up by thirty billion dollars over last year.

Obama, his “progressive” political allies and the obedient lapdogs within the “progressive” Party Pravda continue to foster the notion that raising tax rates on the highest income earners, those who already pay forty percent of all income tax revenue, will be a panacea, the magical elixir needed to solve America’s fiscal woes.

federal-non-defense-spendingThey also continue to lay the blame for today’s deficits on former President George W. Bush.  Bush’s highest deficit was $438 billion during his last year in office.  Obama’s government is poised to post another $1 trillion deficit, which will mark the fifth straight year of $1 trillion or more deficits.

America’s current financial predicament is the result of wasteful “progressive” spending on big government socialist programs.

That is the reason.

America’s debt and deficit dilemmas can only be solved through reduced spending.  If and when the United States falls off a fiscal cliff or receives another credit downgrade, it will be because of “progressives”, not Conservatives.

The conversation should be about how to cut spending, not about how to increase taxes.

Political Party or media employer notwithstanding, anyone who says differently is being intellectually dishonest.
