Here is the Official Roll Call Vote 219 - 212
Find Your Representative Here and learn how they've voted on every issue.
"I am concerned that bringing the bill to the floor next week is too premature to properly evaluate Members’ concerns and implement needed improvements." This statement is from Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack's official Congressional website for her 45th District. This week, just before the Cap and Trade vote, she writes:
"Americans are already facing tough economic times, with reduced lines of credit, diminished home values and rising unemployment rates; any legislation we pass must balance the need to preserve critical jobs and prevent out-of-control energy rate increases." These were the Members concerns Ms. Mack
Now I've heard many stories and anecdotes, but, in this case, someone needs to be accountable. I understand all eight of the confused Representatives above are in liberal districts. While my heart goes out to them, I don't really believe the liberals voted them into the districts. I can, however, understand their concern for their safety being surrounded by liberals.
Instead, I believe the people voting for them have been wronged to no end. Anybody in their right mind knows the Cap and Trade bill is the worse thing that could happen in this country. Aside from the fact it is simply the further implementation of control over lives, it is the death of our economy through more debt and loss of jobs.
Pelosi, Frank, and Barry Soetoro, aka Obama's assuage of the World Order plans may sound comforting to their zombies, but, the eight traitors above are full aware of its violations and ramifications. There is even hidden, guises as an energy credit, a provision for Frank's second round of worthless mortgages.
Barny Frank and Nancy Pelosi and especially the President (for the time being) can go on national television and boldly lie about what is in these mystery packages and what good they will do. They believe in their hearts, they are doing what is best for their zombies, as their zombies are not capable of making rational decisions.
The above eight were not elected for that ideology, and their party affiliation is a constant reminder. What incentive was involved? How much money were they offered for themselves, or their districts, that made them lose all common sense, and commit political suicide?
These eight are not representative of the people which instilled their trust in them. Forty six (46) Democrats could see the horrific damage that will be done, and voted against the bill and against their colleagues. I will find out what made these eight go against reason, ethics, and their people and they will be made famous.
On Wednesday, June 24, Senate Republicans attempted to kill the Harold Koh(gungrabber and International Law) nomination with a filibuster -- until eight of them crossed the aisle to help Democrats confirm Koh. He is a promoter of using laws of other countries if Constitutional law does not apply to a situation. In other words, we don't need the Constitution.
The back-stabbing Senators are: Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Susan Collins (R-ME), Judd Gregg (R-NH), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Richard Lugar (R-IN), Mel Martinez (R-FL), Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and George Voinovich (R-OH)."
This Cap and Trade is not just some little resolution which can be argued of its benefits. This is a life changing doctrine for all America. Even liberals will be rudely awakened when the ripples begin to reach them, and they will. The environmental group Friends of the Earth issued a comment to the press: "This bill is counter-productive and corrupt with all kinds of special interests". Liberals place all their trust in their government leaders to provide the best for them. Conservative Constitution lovers are not that complacent. We ask questions and want reasonable answers.
This life changing bill was not even read by the irresponsible Reps that voted for it. A handful of [TRANSPARENT?] Dems changed it up a bit and added many items AT 3:00AM Friday; and demanded all vote on the over 1200 pages, once again, without reading it. When Congressman Boehner attempted to point out the moronic highlights, Rep Waxman began crying like a little schoolboy who just got his lunch stolen.
All this may sound amusing through your apathy, but, it is illegal for a member of Congress to vote on a law which has not been properly reviewed and the results will be so devastating to this country and most of its people. The largest group being affected...the middle class. Those whom work the hardest to preserve and provide for this country. We have been grossly misrepresented.
Final note I cannot let go by without mention. On Friday, and the days after, when the most significant events in our present lives are unfolding, most Americans were not concerned of Cap and Trade, but, the worship of a singer and dancer's demise. God Help Us.

Seller claims Mombasa document 'certified copy'
please see petition at bottom of article
Posted: June 27, 2009
12:40 am Eastern
By Bob Unruh
World Net Daily copywrite 2009
With dozens of lawsuits filed over access to Barack Obama's certified long-form birth certificate, many more lawyers working on his behalf to keep it secret and the validity of the U.S. Constitution hanging in the balance, guess where a "certified copy" of the original Mombasa "document" has been found? On eBay.
Item No. 160344374585, at least as of today, is described as "a certified copy of President Barack Obama's Kenyan Birth Certificate."
The seller, identified by the user name " colmado_naranja," states, "President Barack Hussein Obama II was born in The Coast Provincial Hospital at Mombasa in Kenya at 7:24 PM on August 4th, 1961."
eBay offer for Obama's Kenyan birth certificate
Update: Since this article was published, the item has been removed by eBay 2 times, stating for security reasons. Full Story Here Seller has reposted for third time
But the seller, who according to the eBay rankings has completed dozens of transactions on the behemoth auction site without difficulties, said this is the real deal.
The seller, who did not respond to a WND request for an interview, said online he was traveling in Kenya and repeatedly heard stories that Obama actually was born in Kenya.
"Kenyans were amused at how gullible Americans could be when it came to obvious things like the fact that Kenyans overtly admit to Barack Jr's Kenyan birth, yet the Americans continue to believe that they know better," the seller writes.
"I delved further and found that a birth certificate was on file at The Coast Provincial General Hospital at Mombasa," said the seller, who claims the certificate is in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
"I know several American expats that reside in Kenya. I asked the three that I could reach if they were aware of President Barack Obama's Kenyan birth. All three said that they were most obviously aware of his Kenyan birth. I was shocked. They went to further say that they weren't much concerned with it, after all they'd left the U.S. to start a new life abroad and didn't have much interest in what was taking place in the States. Besides, they said, who would believe them anyway?
"Along with my Congolese brother Andylenny (brother in heart, not blood) and a 1993 BMW with only one working door I was off to Mombasa to get myself a copy (certified I hoped) of Barack Jr's birth certificate," the seller reported.
I am not posting any photos of the birth certificate here on eBay. I have not seen this birth certificate anywhere on the Internet, to post it here on eBay would lead to a flood of facsimiles on the Internet. This would inadvertently decrease the value of the certificate as well," the seller said.
WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President."
Some of the lawsuits question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.
Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.
Complicating the situation is Obama's decision to spend sums estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to avoid releasing a state birth certificate that would put to rest all of the questions.
WND has reported that among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes his kindergarten records, his Punahou school records, his Occidental College records, his Columbia University records, his Columbia thesis, his Harvard Law School records, his Harvard Law Review articles, his scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, his passport, his medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.
"Where's The Birth Certificate?" billboard in Pennsylvania
Because of the dearth of information about Obama's eligibility, WND founder Joseph Farah has launched a campaign to raise contributions to post billboards asking a simple question: "Where's the birth certificate?"
The campaign followed a petition that has collected almost 400,000 signatures demanding proof of his eligibility, the availability of yard signs raising the question and the production of permanent, detachable magnetic bumper stickers asking the question.
The birth certificate seller is a self-proclaimed "collector of old Dominican and Cuban money" and has worked in the Congo.
"This spring I traveled through Kenya and its capital Nairobi. I was overwhelmed by the 'iconicized' face of U.S. President Barack Obama that displays itself throughout the country. I had lunch at a small eatery and noticed that the club sandwich with fried plantains was now known as 'Obama's Plate of the Day,'" the seller writes. "As an American I was bombarded with questions in English (English is national language of Kenya) on my feelings and opinions of a Kenyan governing the United States of America. The first several times I responded in saying that not enough time had elapsed since Barack Obama's appointment as president of the U.S.A., and that I'd have to hold my official opinion until at least January 2010, a year in office might be sufficient for me to judge his ability to govern the U.S.A.
"Naturally I thought that by 'Kenyan' they were referring to Barack Obama's blood, being that his father Barack Obama Sr. was a native of Kenya. After a day and a half of my being in Nairobi I learned that they were literally referring to President Barack Obama Jr. as being born in Kenya, a native of Kenya."
The seller also cited the fact that Obama has not release his "Hawaiian" birth certificate. His administration, the seller sayd, "in an attempt to put the birth certificate issue to a rest, has presented the American public with a FAKE, FORGED, Fraudulent Hawaiian Birth Certificate."
The seller indicated a willingness to respond to questions about the item, for which bidding was set to begin at $1,000. But the seller said questions would be evaluated and may not get a direct response. There also was an option to purchase the document immediately for $1 million.
The "certification of live birth" posted online and widely touted as "Obama's birth certificate" does not in any way prove he was born in Hawaii, since the same "short-form" document is easily obtainable for children not born in Hawaii. The true "long-form" birth certificate – which includes information such as the name of the birth hospital and attending physician – is the only document that can prove Obama was born in Hawaii, but to date he has not permitted its release for public or press scrutiny.
Oddly, though congressional hearings were held to determine whether Sen. John McCain was constitutionally eligible to be president as a "natural born citizen," no controlling legal authority ever sought to verify Obama's claim to a Hawaiian birth.
If the Document exists in the U.S., why would it not be subpoenaed as evidence in numerous pending cases???

National Right to Work has previously exposed how President Barack Obama’s supposedly strict ethics policy doesn’t apply to Big Labor. Time and time again, Obama has filled key positions in the Department of Labor, National Labor Relations Board, and other federal agencies with top union officials and forced unionism extremists who are given influence over matters important to their former employers.
In the latest installment of the Personnel Alert video series, National Right to Work Committee president Mark Mix discuses John J. Sullivan, Obama’s nominee to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
After the radical Service Employees International Union (SEIU)’s Section 529 group, America Coming Together (ACT), illegally raised and spent $100 million in the 2004 election, the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation filed a complaint with the FEC. Sullivan, a lawyer for the SEIU, defended ACT, and the FEC investigation eventually led to a record $775,000 fine.
And now President Obama wants to install Sullivan in the very agency which has the responsibility to investigate and punish illegal union politicking.
To learn more about Sullivan’s lifelong career as a militant union bigwig, watch the special video report here.
The National Right to Work Foundation provides free legal aid to employees so they can fight back against union coercion and abuse.
The Foundation must rely on the voluntary support of individual Americans who believe in our cause and wish to advance our strategic litigation program.

It was the sniper shot heard round the world. One moment, a young woman is standing on the sidewalk, watching the Iranian people stand up to the state. A second later, she crumbles to the sidewalk, blood pumping uselessly out of the gunshot wound in her chest. A faceless police sniper has killed Neda Agha Soltan, but also made her immortal. Her murder was videotaped and sent worldwide. Her death is now the defining image of the 2009 Iranian revolution. Read Full Story by James S Robbins, Washington Times.
The President of the United States has always been the leader of the free world. Our country has always stood for human rights and freedom. Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, has been more concerned about what the tyrannical regime of Iran will think of him, rather than what actions he should take to denounce the atrocities.
I have news for you, Mr Obama, the Ayatollah and Mahmud Ahmanuhtjohb already don't think much of you. No Muslim nation has the respect for you that you wish, or think, they have. They think you are a joke. That was the exact word Ahmanuhtjohb used to describe you. All you are accomplishing by hiding from the current situation in Iran is showing your own people you are spineless and vein.
While Iranians are being killed and tortured only for wanting basic human rights, you are spending every waking moment pushing your lies regarding Obamacare. Here is a short video example of how some of the young protesters are being treated (you won't see on CNN). Strange, when you and your cronies spent so much time and yelling about water being poured on those individuals responsible for killing Americans.
Are you afraid, Mr Obama, of showing to much sympathy for the Iranian freedom fighters, as that attitude will clash with your guise you will need when dealing with the American Freedom Fighters ???
I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.
But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio,above the table, and next to the barbecue.
Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table... everywhere!
Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket.
And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio.
Soon, the back yard was like it used to be .... quiet, serene.... and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.
Now let's see. Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care and free education, and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen.
Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; your child's second grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English.
Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to 'press one ' to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than our flag are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.
Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
If you agree, pass it on; if not, continue cleaning up the poop.

The White House claims Inspector General Gerald Walpin was effectively away without leave from his Washington office and that he was so "disoriented" and "confused" at a May 20 meeting that it made officials "question his capacity to serve." An exclusive witness told The Washington Times both charges are baseless. Full Story on witness to Walpin-gate, by James Robbins, Washington Times.
Now it is founded a second Inspector General has been fired for probing to far, and a third is in serious dispute with the Obama administration. Walpin had led an investigation of Mayor Kevin Johnson of Sacramento, Calif., a former NBA player and Obama supporter. Johnson started a nonprofit education program that Walpin's office alleged had misused federal funds. Walpin was fired immediately by Obama, which violates a law which went into effect last year. The law stipulates no Inspectors General can be dismissed without showing proper cause to Congress and a 30 day notice. This law was supported by then Senator Obama.
Senator Charles Grassley, R- Iowa, has called for an investigation into the matter. Sen. Grassley sent a letter Wednesday to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner demanding information about a "dispute over certain Treasury documents" that he said were being "withheld" from Inspector Neil Barofsky's office on a "specious claim of attorney-client privilege." Barofsky was appointed as the public watchdog over the government's multi-billion dollar bailout of the nation's financial system. This is the transparency in affect.
This week, the International Trade Commission told its acting inspector general, Judith Gwynne, who is not subject to White House authority, that her contract would not be renewed. Grassley had become concerned about the independence of her investigation, because of a report earlier in the year that an agency employee forcibly took documents from the acting inspector general.
Grassley, who is the ranking Republican on the Finance Committee, is now concerned about whether a pattern is emerging in which the independence of the government's top watchdogs, whose jobs were authorized by Congress to look out for waste, fraud and abuse, is being put at risk. Grassley sent a letter via email to the ITC asking why certain information was being withheld from the IG. Less than three hours after the letter was e-mailed to the agency, the acting IG, Gwynne, was told that her contract, which expires in early July, would not be renewed.
Just like ACORN and so many other issues where laws are being broken, either by Obama, or his cronies, nothing is being done. Only a few, Dems or Reps, are even questioning certain goings-on. It is clear, laws are being broken. These are just a few of the clear crimes being committed by Obama and his admistration:
*He violated the law and the provisions of the Constitution by seizing control of GM and Chrysler without proper authorization from Congress. Although his unlawful cronies in Congress granted him the authority after the fact, his action to seize corporations was a violation of the law at the time it was implemented. The fact that the U.S. Supreme Court allowed this atrocity is no matter. Thomas Jefferson said it best when he articulated a key principle of liberty--any government that willfully violates the rule of law and encroaches on the rights of the people ceases to be a legitimate government. This government has violated the provisions of the 5th Amendment regarding due process and fair compensation at the very least.
*His use of ACORN as a campaign vehicle is a violation of the law. Entities such as ACORN are prohibited by the Federal Government from engaging in partisan political activity. It is clear to anybody with eyes and ears that this organization was an overtly pro-Obama entity, the goal of which was to do nothing but get out the vote for BO.
*His consistent and blatant pandering to America's sworn enemies in the Muslim world is tantamount to treason, the definition of which, according to the U.S. Constitution, is the aiding and abetting of America's enemies. Can there be any doubt that Obama should at least be charged with the offense, given his penchant for going out of his way to offend our allies such as Israel, Britain, France, and Germany, while implementing policies that favor Hamas, Iran, Egypt, Syria, and other terrorist hotbeds?
*He broke a law that he himself pushed and helped pass as a Senator that provides protections for Inspectors-General who do their jobs by investigating corruption, waste, and fraud in government programs. Yet when these government watchdogs get too close to the thuggery of Obama's friends, they get summarily fired for no good reason, such as Mr. Walpin.
*And then there are those who believe that Barack Obama has no valid U.S. birth certificate. At first such charges were dismissed as the musings of kooks. But increasingly many level-headed Americans are beginning to look closely, realizing that perhaps those who first broke this story are not kooks after all. So far, no valid copy of Obama's birth certificate has been produced, meaning that if he doesn't have one, he is not even eligible to serve, which can only point to yet another violation of the law--fraud.
*Several citizens have filed criminal complaints calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama based upon these and other issues. One of those issues is the illegal use of the military in Alabama to police the streets of a small town that had been hit with a crime wave.
Canada Free Press published an interview with one man who filed a criminal complaint against Obama based upon the illegal use of the military, his missing birth certificate, and his treasonous acts regarding America's enemies. Here is the reporter's introduction to the interview:
In light of the now almost daily bombardment of the US Constitution by the sitting US Commander in Chief, the question ‘is our Constitution still the law of the land?’ is increasingly being asked by We-the-People. The problem of Barack Hussein Obama seeming not to be a natural-born citizen is still an extremely salient issue—an issue that has led Obama to hire a team of lawyers to keep all information on his actual country of birth and all of his college records hidden. The latest estimate on the fees charged to do so is over $1Million.
This, coupled with Obama’s continued and strong apparent push to completely bankrupt the USA and turn it into his own personal totalitarian utopia has led to unprecedented actions by some US citizens.
Recently, retired Navy Commander Walter Francis Fitzpatrick III filed a criminal complaint of Treason against Barack Hussein Obama. This has prompted other individuals around the country to do the same. As our Republic now stands on the brink of complete collapse, I thought an interview of Commander Fitzpatrick was in order.
And here is an excerpt of this explosive interview:
Sher: For those who haven’t yet read the criminal complaint, please tell us what it entails.
Walt: Mr. Obama is named in the commission of the crime of TREASON by a commissioned officer in the U.S. military. TREASON is the only criminal act our Constitution records. Mr. Obama is described in the criminal complaint as a ‘foreign born domestic enemy and a traitor’. This simple declarative sentence is intended to state clearly Mr. Obama meets elements of the crime of TREASON by being an enemy of the United States and our constitutional form of government. It states also Mr. Obama adheres to other U.S. enemies and gives them aid and comfort (Obama’s criminal assistants).
Sher: After you filed the complaint against Obama, I understand that you were visited by the Secret Service. Can you tell me and my readers what transpired? And what legal reason did they give you as their justification to interrogate you?
The upshot of all of this is that a man occupies the White House who under normal circumstances would be facing impeachment hearings in Congress.
Read the entire article to find out the conclusion of Mr. Fitzpatrick's 'visit' from the Secret Service HERE.
There is just now beginning to be Congressional support of a bill to demand Obama's proof of eligibility to hold the office. A few days ago Sheperd Smith, of FOX News, called the "birth certificate thing" lunacy, and a conspiracy theory, by idiots. Problem with that is, Smith, like so many others, just believe that a President wouldn't be President if he were not qualified. We can't seem to get satisfaction from our President, so it will take a literal act of Congress to force the issue and make Obama submit to the will of THE PEOPLE he works for.

GLENN: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona. She writes an open letter to our nation's leadership: I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut job am I? Will you please tell me? Read The Full Letter; If you agree with the letter, please sign the attached petition, so as to let our leaders know it is time to start doing things our way, or be fired.

An Obama administration plan to train Palestinian forces and deploy them in the West Bank will receive its requested funding, Congress was expected to decide Thursday as Israeli officials said that the US had formulated a two-year plan to train a total of 10 battalions.
According to the decision, the 2009 fiscal year Supplemental Appropriations Bill will include $109 million for projects directed by the United States Security Coordination in Israel Lt.-Gen. Keith Dayton. Congress is also currently evaluating an administration request to receive an additional $100m. to continue and expand the training in 2010. (The Jerusalem Post)
One year after declaring - as a presidential candidate - that an Iranian attack on Israel would be regarded as an attack on the US, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earlier this week revealed that this was certainly not the policy of the Obama administration.
While the Iranians could expect 'retaliation,' America was not committing itself to come to Israel's defense.
Clinton's readiness to publicly back her country off from a position she said she would hold were she president is in line with the recently-revealed shift in America's alliances in the Middle East.
In a major foreign policy speech delivered in Cairo last week, President Barack Obama came out strongly in support of historically-illegitimate Arab aspirations, while effectively undermining the legitimacy of Israel's claims and rights.
Israelis have reacted to the betrayal with shock and disbelief.

Dear President Obama,
During the first 100 days of your administration you have done more to damage the United States standing in the world then any other American president in history. Given this unusual anti-American behavior, I feel compelled to challenge you as follows------
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU travel the world siding with and apologizing to every second rate critic of America you can find?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU take a world wide apology tour as America?s greatest critic in order to gain personal popularity overseas?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU conclude diplomacy consists of apologizing for America and calling America arrogant?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU make public the CIA interrogation memos?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU take dangerous revenge on the Bush administration for using interrogation techniques the Congress was aware of?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU refuse to replace the decaying warheads in our nuclear arsenal while Russia rebuilds hers and China expands hers?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU respond to North Korea?s and Iran?s building of nuclear weapons and missiles by terminating our missile defense system?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU say you will reduce our ground forces when they already have proven too small?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU cut off the production of modern military warplanes and reduce the size of our navy while China goes full speed ahead?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU apologize for President Truman?s decision to drop the atomic bombs that ended World War II and for President Kennedy helping Cuban freedom fighters in their Bay of Pigs? attempt to retake their homeland?
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON WHEN YOU ignore what America has freely given in blood and treasure for the free world in World War I and World War II and the Cold War?
You truly scare me.

Farewell America--We'll really miss you!
Farewell to the America we have loved for two centuries and hello to a new far-left driven president who promised change and will most likely deliver on it,
Farewell, to an America driven by individuals with strong work ethics to one which will resemble French, German, and British societies where big government, big welfare, union controlled labor, four day work weeks, ten week vacations are the rule. Societies which constantly ask "---where's mine?"
Farewell to capitalism, job creation, lower taxes, smaller government, fewer entitlements, safer cities, personal responsibility and sound work ethics.
Farewell to adequate military defense spending to protect us from our enemies who wish and plan to kill us.
Farewell to close ties with our best and only friend in the middle east---Israel.
Farewell to maintaining a conservative Supreme Court.
Farewell to any chance of keeping HealthCare out of the hands and control of government.
Farewell to the famous American standard of living--a magnet to the world.
Farewell to conservative 'talk radio' as an antidote to the biased media. The Fairness Doctrine will return.
Farewell to any hope for educating our college kids in something other than liberal mush.
Today is truly a sad day for millions of Americans as they slowly allow the election results to sink in. Today, for the first time in modern history, America took a giant step toward changing not only the direction, but the entire character of the country from free enterprise driven to big government driven.
Our only hope is to start now planning and building a strong conservative base which can reclaim the Presidency and Congress in four years and start repairing the damage. God help us if we fail.Lou Pritchett (www.loupritchett.com)

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Testifying Wednesday before the Budget Committee of the House of Representatives, Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke demanded that Congress and the Obama administration map out a program of austerity measures to bring down record budget deficits. Bernanke made clear that the heart of this program should be sharp cuts in social spending, including basic entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
“Maintaining the confidence of the financial markets,” Bernanke said in prepared remarks to the committee, “requires that we, as a nation, begin planning now for the restoration of fiscal balance.”
The phrase “confidence of the financial markets” is a euphemism for the interests of Wall Street and major international banks and investors. In demanding the preparation of austerity measures to be imposed on the American people, Bernanke was speaking in behalf of the financial elite whose massive taxpayer subsidies have been the major cause of the explosive growth over the past year of the federal deficit and the US national debt.
Even as he called for plans to slash social programs, Bernanke said that the economic “recovery,” which he predicted would begin later this year, would be preceded by a continued surge in unemployment that would last for a protracted period. Acknowledging that nearly 6 million jobs in the US have been lost since the beginning of 2008, he said “sizable job losses and further increases in unemployment are likely over the next few months.”
Even when the economy stops shrinking—currently at an annual rate of 6 percent—“businesses are likely to be cautious about hiring, and the unemployment rate is likely to rise for a time,” he said.
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the fiscal 2009 federal deficit will top $1.8 trillion, more than four times the deficit for 2008. Bernanke told the committee that the ratio of federal debt held by the public to the gross domestic product (GDP) will likely rise from 40 percent before the onset of the financial crisis to 70 percent in 2011.
Warning that a continuation of such levels of debt could drive up the cost of government borrowing—a disastrous prospect for an economy dependent on a continuous stream of loans from China, Japan and other countries—Bernanke said that the deficits would have to be reduced substantially either through tax increases or budget cuts. “The Federal Reserve will not monetize the debt,” he declared.
He made clear that his prescription for “fiscal balance” was dramatic cuts in what remains of social programs, rather than tax increases. He zeroed in on the basic programs upon which tens of millions of Americans depend—Social Security and Medicare.
Noting projections of rising outlays for these entitlement programs as millions of baby boomers retire, he said “we will not be able to continue borrowing indefinitely to meet these demands.” Speaking of “difficult choices,” he said, “Congress, the administration and the American people must confront how large a share of the nation’s economic resources to devote to federal government programs, including entitlement programs.”
He said that if these programs were not reined in, taxes would have to be raised, and then made clear his preference, calling for “spending and budget deficits” to be “well controlled.”
Bernanke’s call for austerity policies is entirely in line with the program of the Obama administration. Obama has pledged to slash the budget deficit by half by the end of his term, placing a reduction in health care costs and entitlement “reform” at the center of his fiscal policy. This week, his treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, in a two-day visit to China, pledged to reduce the US budget gap from the current 12.9 percent of GDP to 3 percent. In a speech at Peking University, he spoke of a permanent reduction in the “discretionary spending” of the American people.
At Wednesday’s Budget Committee hearing, the ranking Republican, Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, articulated even more openly than Bernanke the ruthless policy of the US ruling elite toward the working class. He said he was concerned about political pressure on the Fed to delay tightening credit in the face of long-term high unemployment, and urged the Fed chairman to adhere to the central bank’s “commitment to price stability”—in other words, to pursue a deliberate policy of keeping unemployment high in order to bludgeon the working class into accepting wage cuts and other concessions.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, speaking for the Democrats, sounded a similar note. He told reporters that Bernanke is “absolutely right, we need to be very concerned about incurring additional indebtedness.” He said the Democratic-controlled House planned to pass legislation before its July 4 recess to establish “pay-as-you-go” rules, which, he said, would require that any increase in spending be offset by cuts in other programs.
In addition, he said, “We need to address entitlements.”

These are not what we have been fed as "Radical Muslims", but, typical, everyday, Koran believing Muslims. It is not just a few, but, all Muslims want Jews, Americans, and all infidels dead. It is their religious belief. Stop pandering to the tyranny that is taking over our country. Watch this, then act. Stop playing Obama's game and speak out against the take over.
