Catch Me If You Can....

As was reported previously, today is the day Dynegy will acquire Brayton Point.

It is fitting that our lawless president continues to play "catch me if you can" while the mainstream media continues to provide vast amounts of cover for him to do so.  Take, for instance, the fact that Barack Hussein Obama and John Kerry have been openly negotiating a nuclear bomb with Islamic-Nazi-Fascists terrorists while the entire Middle East is on the brink of war.

But, that is old news now.  Obama is onto a global climate change agreement, not passed by Congress, but instead passed by the United Nations (just like his Iranian nuclear bomb agreement will be a United Nations agreement).  The "negotiations" will take place in Paris from November 30-December 11, 2015.  The agreement (which is already agreed upon, hence negotiations in quotes) calls for slashing greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) by close to 28 percent from 2005 levels within a decade, using a host of existing "laws" and illegal executive actions targeting all power plants, all vehicles, all oil and gas production, all coal production, and all buildings on the planet.  To say it succinctly, if any power plant has managed to survive the past six years, it won't survive this Obama "accord".  Congress will be sidestepped once again by this lawless president and instead the non-elected United Nations will decide our energy and economic fate.  At the heart of the United Nations "accord" are industry and job killing Environmental Protection Agency regulations meant to destroy the power generation industry and force energy prices up exponentially.  The "accord" will negatively impact all aspects of power generation and motor vehicles emissions and surge power prices upward beyond belief!  It will have drastic negative impacts on every aspect of the American and global economy as the 'war on power generation' will become a global initiative.  It will all be done without Congress and without 'we the people'.

Contrast this with this new study by real independent scientists at Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Meteorology.  Real scientists found that man-made aerosols (a.k.a. CO2) had a much smaller cooling effect on the atmosphere during the 20th Century than was previously thought.  That means increases in carbon dioxide emissions likely caused less warming than most climate models suggest.  To put this into perspective, atmospheric concentrations of CO2 currently stand at around 400 parts per million, if this were to double, according to the IPCC’s (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) estimates temperatures could rise as high as 4.5 degrees Celsius.  Incorporate the Max Planck study results and warming would only be as high as 1.8 degrees Celsius, less than half what the IPCC originally predicted.  The Max Planck study is yet another "death blow" to the climate hysteria propaganda machine. Obama's United Nations climate change "accord" is based upon the pseudo-science promulgated by the IPCC hysteria.  Thus, it is all based upon lies and false premises.

Actually the real reason Obama plays this 'catch me if you can' game is for more power and control over every aspect of every human life on the planet!  He is the ultimate mastermind of the world and only he decides how, when, and where all wealth will be distributed.

Cicero on Obama

I came across a quote by Cicero which really sums up what I personally think of Barack Hussein Obama and his entire administration.  It sums up Obama's treasonous acts from within the federal government.  Obama does, in fact, "appeal to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men." Obama does "rot the soul of a nation" and he does "undermine the pillars of the city."  I see Obama as an American enemy and an American traitor with all that he has done and left undone over the past six years.  Cicero understood the likes of Obama quite well:
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
The American people (the herd voters) still do not get it.  They are still ignorant of what this man has done to America over the past six years.  The traitor is within the White House and he is destroying America from within.  The enemy is not coming from the outside, the enemy is in the inside in the highest office in the nation....

Obama's Wars

Confusing and chaotic as it is, here is where we (America) currently stand with respect to the Islamic-Nazi-Fascist regime in Tehran, Iran:
  • America is on the same side as Iran in fighting the Islamic-Nazi-Fascists Islamic State terrorists in Iraq and Syria.  America is providing air power for Shia Iran against Sunni Syria and Iraq terrorists.  America has taken the side of Shia Muslims in this religious war.
  • America is against Iran in helping Yemen fight off the Shia Houthi rebels who are taking control over Sunni controlled Yemen.  Iranian-allied Houthi rebels took over Yemen, chasing out our soldiers and allies with chants of “Death to America, death to Israel.”  Here we have taken the side of Sunni Muslims.
  • America is helping Iran gain a nuclear bomb by negotiating an illegal and unconstitutional treaty with the Islamic-Nazi-Fascist regime in Tehran, Iran.
  • America was on the side of Hamas over this past summer when Iran backed Hamas terrorists were committing heinous terrorists' acts of war against Israel.  Hamas terrorists were shooting RPGs from residential homes and using fellow Muslims as human shields.  Hamas was targeting Israeli private citizens for capture and slaughter.  Hamas was also well-supported by America's mainstream media like CNN, MSNBC and all the major networks (except Fox News).
Saudi Arabia wants nuclear bombs now that we are allowing Iran to obtain nuclear bombs. Pakistan and Israel already possess nuclear bombs.  The word it out that Saudi Arabia already has deals to obtain them due to their limitless capital and connections.  The arms race is just beginning in the Middle East and you can thank Barack Hussein Obama and John Kerry.  Imagine a Middle East where the Shia versus Sunni religious wars goes nuclear. Imagine a Middle East where Hitler's Final Solution can finally reach an endpoint with nuclear bombs detonated over major Israeli cities.  Imagine a world where terrorists that chop off heads, burn people alive in cages, and rape five year old girls have nuclear bombs to detonate in Boston, New York, and Los Angeles.  Millions of Jews killed in one split second. Whole cities wiped out for religious and ethnic genocide.   Killing of infidels in mass extermination to fulfill Islamic law and prophecy. 

These are Obama's wars and they just may end in the destruction of the planet.  The Nobel Peace Prize recipient has brought the world closer to extinction because he is an anti-Semitic Muslim and a hard Marxist ideologue beyond the pale.  Michael Goodwin (New York Post; Obama's Race to Chaos) writes:
These are unprecedented developments, veering so far from the norm and happening so fast that consequences are piling up faster than they can be comprehended. Alliances built over decades are shattered in a relative flash, inviting aggression and endless conflict. The toxic brew of Islamic fanaticism and nuclear proliferation could ignite a world conflagration. 
These are grim thoughts, expressed because it is impossible to imagine any other outcome of Iran’s rise. It remains the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism and supports Hezbollah and Hamas and now the Houthis in Yemen. As for Iranian influence in Iraq, one analyst is calling Suleimani, the Revolutionary Guard commander, Iraq’s new “viceroy.” 
Remember, too, Iran muscle and munitions are keeping Bashar Assad still standing in Syria. The wholesale death and destruction there — an estimated 200,000 people killed and millions displaced within the country and out of it — could be a prototype of its new empire.
While there are many dark and complex forces in play and blame to spread around, the most important catalyst of the violent disorder has been the reversal of America’s policies. Under Obama, we have switched sides, an abomination that ensures a legacy of infamy.
Take a look at this article for more:   The battle for the Middle East's future begins in Yemen as Saudi Arabia jumps into the abyss.

One more thing, John Kerry told reporter Laura Rozen this weekend that a nuclear deal with Iran is possible..."Inshallah."  Inshallah or Insha'Allah is Arabic for "God Willing" or more closely to "If Allah Wills."  This speaks volumes....

January 21, 2017 cannot come fast enough.  Everything is unraveling at once and it is all due to Barack Hussein Obama.

The Duplicitous Hillary Clinton

Could there be a more lying, deceitful, corrupt, amoral, untrustworthy, underhanded, crooked, or hypocritical person than Hillary Rodham Clinton?  Perhaps her hubby, Bill "Blow Job" Clinton?  Hillary Clinton illegally used a personal server for her official emails as secretary of state, and before she handed it over to investigators, she and her staff wiped the server clean.  Per the New York Times article No Copies of Clinton Emails on Server, Lawyer Says:
"An examination of the server that housed the personal email account that Hillary Rodham Clinton used exclusively when she was secretary of state showed that there are no copies of any emails she sent during her time in office, her lawyer told a congressional committee on Friday."   
"After her representatives determined which emails were government-related and which were private, a setting on the account was changed to retain only emails sent in the previous 60 days, her lawyer, David Kendall, said. He said the setting was altered after she gave the records to the government."
"Thus, there are no hdr22@clintonemail.com emails from Secretary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on the server for any review, even if such review were appropriate or legally authorized,” Mr. Kendall said in a letter to the House select committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya."

Hillary Clinton wiped the server clean so there is no evidence of any wrongdoing by her or anyone in the Obama administration!  Nothing can be pinned on her whatsoever. Remember Lois Lerner's IRS emails went missing because of a suspiciously destroyed hard drive?  Well, this time, Clinton simply wiped the server clean and there may not be a backup anywhere on the planet.  Corruption, lies, and deception are hallmarks of Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama's administration.  This is incredible disturbing and alarming.

According to this article, Private Emails Reveal Ex-Clinton Aide’s Secret Spy Network, Clinton was actually running a rogue, off-the-grid, intelligence operation outside the parameters of the United States Government:
"Starting weeks before Islamic militants attacked the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, longtime Clinton family confidante Sidney Blumenthal supplied intelligence to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gathered by a secret network that included a former CIA clandestine service officer, according to hacked emails from Blumenthal’s account."
"The emails, which were posted on the Internet in 2013, also show that Blumenthal and another close Clinton associate discussed contracting with a retired Army special operations commander to put operatives on the ground near the Libya-Tunisia border while Libya’s civil war raged in 2011."
I'm at a complete loss of how American voters could ever support Hillary Rodham Clinton for President of the United States.  One must have a screw loose or be blinded by bizarre and debilitating ideology to not see Hillary Clinton for what she really is.  Yet, Barack Hussein Obama evolved (actually devolved) from the same corrupt ideology and he was elected President not once, but twice!  So, the idiocy of the American voter and American democracy is evident when a corrupt Barack Hussein Obama or a Hillary Rodham Clinton can be elected President of the United States.  How is this possible?  

How can the American voter be so stupid?  What sort of abnormal and depraved psychosis does a person have to vote for a corrupt, lying, deceitful, amoral, mendacious, duplicitous, and hypocritical candidate like Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Hussein Obama?  I simply cannot understand....I will never understand...

Getting Some Things Off My Chest...

A few things I'd like to get off my chest on this dreary Friday:
  • Good riddance to Senator Harry Reid, that decrepit, senile, Marxist puke that has spent his life ruining the Senate and Congress and making millions of dollars in fraudulent backroom deals.  He leaves the Senate a multi-millionaire like so many Socialist liberals do these days.  Harry Reid is a Marxist "Party First" guy that successfully castrated the United States Senate and Congress on behalf of Barack Hussein Obama.  May you rot in hell you liberal ass....
  • Speaking of multi-millionaire Marxist pukes, Hillary Clinton's misogynist supporters released their list of coded sexism words that people must never use to describe Hillary Clinton: Polarizing, Calculating, Disingenuous, Insincere, Ambitions, Inevitable, Entitled, 'Over Confident', Secretive, 'Will Do Anything to Win', 'Represents the Past', and 'Out of Touch'.  At least "Scum Bag Bitch" isn't on the list, so we can still use that one...
  • The dumbest Secretary of State in the history of America (John Kerry) is unilaterally caving in to Iranian-fascist demands that will allow Iran to build nuclear bombs that Iran can deliver via intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) Iran already possess.  Thus, Iran can carry out their "death to America" slogan with said nuclear ICBMs.  Barack Hussein Obama, the anti-Semitic Muslim, will circumvent the Senate ratification process and instead utilize the fraudulent United Nations to ratify the treaty deal.  Iran will never adhere to this deal and Obama is allowing that terrorist Islamic-Nazi regime to obtain the nuclear bomb and threaten the region and the world.  'Threaten the world' is too soft a term.  Iran's goal is to destroy America and this deal brings them one step closer to that goal...
  • It has been confirmed Barack Hussein Obama, the aforementioned anti-Semitic Muslim, did in fact release five terrorist Taliban Generals for an Army deserter (Bowe Bergdahl) that converted to Islam and declared himself to be a Jihadist and Mujahedeen fighter for the Taliban.  Remember when Susan Rice said he served the United States military with 'honor and distinction'? Remember when Obama had Bergdahl's parents in the Rose Garden praising Bergdahl's army career?  Bergdahl is not just a deserter; he is a treasonous enemy of the United States who declared war on America.  Obama released five Taliban Generals for a treasonous enemy of the state...
  • One last thing since my blood is now boiling...the Muslim anti-Semitic Obama quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel's nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.  Obama did this because he hates Israel, hates Benjamin Netanyahu, and is a Muslim who hates Jews.  There is no other reason.  Why else would Obama declassify Israel's nuclear information, but keep other NATO countries classified (Italy, France, and West Germany)?  The only reason is Obama is an anti-Semitic Muslim who wishes to disintegrate Israel for his Muslim Brotherhood cohorts...

Time to End the Faith

As John Kerry leads dangerous, fraudulent, and corrupt negotiations with Islamic Nazi terrorists, a Iranian regime that commands the death of America and the death of Americans (all of us), the Islamic Nazis are now taking over Yemen and threatening Saudi Arabia at the same time. Peruse some of these links below and you will find a religious-fascist regime hell bent on conquering the Middle East and ultimately conquering the world. This is the fascist regime John Kerry and Barack Hussein Obama seem to have an affinity for and which they unilaterally pit the United States against our long-time Middle Eastern ally, Israel:

Saudi Arabia building up military near Yemen border - U.S. officials


I've been reading Sam Harris' End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason and was struck by some passages and how pertinent they are to what is going on in this burning world we live in.  Sam Harris indicated the central theme of his book by stating: 
"One of the central themes of this book, however, is that religious moderates are themselves the bearers of a terrible dogma: they imagine that the path to peace will be paved once each of us has learned to respect the unjustified beliefs of others. I hope to show that the very ideal of religious tolerance—born of the notion that every human being should be free to believe whatever he wants about God—is one of the principal forces driving us toward the abyss." 
Ain't that the truth!  Well said, Mr. Harris...

Later, he writes the following:
"We can no longer ignore the fact that billions of our neighbors believe in the metaphysics of martyrdom, or in the literal truth of the book of Revelation, or any of the other fantastical notions that have lurked in the minds of the faithful for millennia—because our neighbors are now armed with chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons. There is no doubt that these developments mark the terminal phase of our credulity. Words like “God” and “Allah” must go the way of “Apollo” and “Baal,” or they will unmake our world."
How about this:
"Moderates do not want to kill anyone in the name of God, but they want us to keep using the word “God” as though we knew what we were talking about. And they do not want anything too critical said about people who really believe in the God of their fathers, because tolerance, perhaps above all else, is sacred. To speak plainly and truthfully about the state of our world—to say, for instance, that the Bible and the Koran both contain mountains of life-destroying gibberish—is antithetical to tolerance as moderates currently conceive it. But we can no longer afford the luxury of such political correctness. We must finally recognize the price we are paying to maintain the iconography of our ignorance."
And this (certainly made me think of Barack Hussein Obama): 
"Most people in positions of leadership in our country will say that there is no direct link between the Muslim faith and “terrorism.” It is clear, however, that Muslims hate the West in the very terms of their faith and that the Koran mandates such hatred. It is widely claimed by “moderate” Muslims that the Koran mandates nothing of the kind and that Islam is a “religion of peace.” But one need only read the Koran itself to see that this is untrue: Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fate. (Koran 9:73) Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them. Know that God is with the righteous. (Koran 9:123)"
As I've said many times before, World War III is upon us since 9/11 and it is a religious war of Muslims against non-Muslims.  As an atheist, I do not wish to partake in this religious war, but I'm certain the Muslims would consider me an infidel like any other Christian, Jew, or Hindu.  I also think words like "God" and "Allah" and "Abraham" and "Muhammad" and "Jesus" must go the way of "Apollo" and "Baal" and "Zeus" and "The Golden Cafe".  I firmly believe we must finally realize how and why fictitious religions poison everything and we must stop our theism and ignorance at once.  The alternative, as I see it, is our total annihilation...

Senator Ted Cruz

I personally think it is too early for Senator Ted Cruz to begin his presidential campaign. He'll be attacked relentlessly by RINOs and the liberals and his campaign may fissile out too soon.  

However, if you can, watch Cruz's campaign kick-off speech delivered at Liberty University (video below). I personally could do without the wing-nut God nonsense and I realize the room is filled with so-called "born again" and "fundamentalist" brainwashed Christians (a significant turn off for this atheist). Nobody is perfect....  

That aside, here is a man who talks about the United States Constitution, freedom, liberty, capitalism, a strong America, and private property rights like no other.  Do you hear this from RINO Jeb Bush?  Nope.  Do you hear this from Marxist Hillary Clinton?  Nope.  Have you ever heard it from Barack Hussein Obama?  Never (you actually hear the opposite from our tyrannical dear leader).  

I'm not endorsing Ted Cruz, but wouldn't it be wonderful to have a President who actually loved America and understands and upholds the United States Constitution no matter what? A true Constitutionalist elected as President!  A real leader and believer in the Republic that was conceived by our founders!  Wouldn't that be a change for the good of America?  That is the hope and change I'm ready for now... 

Sadly, he has a snowballs chance in hell to be nominated by his own party.  His own party will attack him relentlessly and pulverize him until his money dries up and he is forced to exit the race.  The RINOs and the mainstream media have already picked their "Republican" candidate and his name is Jeb Bush.  Another Bush loser being forced down our throats sideways because the masterminds hand picked him.  Another loser that will be crushed by the Democrats in 2016 like McCain and Romney before him.  Another establishment RINO Statist that believes in big leviathan government.  Idiot Republicans!!

If I Were A Liberal...

If I were a liberal hack politician here in Somerset who had wet dreams of higher office, I'd try to brown nose my liberal base by putting forth a citizens petition to give 3% raises to 46 town employees.  No one would be able to see through to my real motives, since I'd simply be doing it because I'm a 'nice person' who wants to see 46 town employees get a 3% raise.  I wouldn't be doing it to for altruistic reasons, of course, but no one would need to know that. It would just appear I really cared deeply for the 46 town employees, deep enough to propose $73,000 in raises when Somerset's tax revenue is shrinking.  

No one could accuse me of being a suck up, kiss ass, brown nosing, boot licking, sycophant liberal hack politician...no one...

Fundamentally Changing the World

Barack Hussein Obama, a devout Muslim and raging anti-Semite, is not only fundamentally changing America; he is fundamentally changing the world.  

As the dumbest Secretary of State in the history of the country (formerly the dumbest Senator) negotiates a nuclear treaty with Iran, Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” and called the negotiations fraudulent. Of course, Obama will circumvent Congress and not get required Senate approval for the treaty as required by the United State Constitution.  Instead, he'll utilize the fraudulent United Nations to approve the treaty.  This will ultimately allow Iran to obtain a nuclear bomb to go along nicely with their vast collection of Intercontinental Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs).  Death to America means just that, death to America.  This rogue Iranian regime will not think twice about using nuclear bombs against the United States and our allies.  This will change the world forever more!!

As Michael Goodwin from the New York Posts writes, "First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet.  He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican “enemies.” He abandons our ­allies, appeases tyrants, coddles ­adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.  Now he’s coming for Israel.  Barack Obama’s promise to transform America was too modest. He is transforming the whole world before our eyes. Do you see it yet?"

Well, do you see it yet?  America and the world has been fundamentally changed forever....

Classroom Indoctrination?

I often wonder about the indoctrination machine that is the Somerset Public Schools.  Are the teacher's radical left ideologues?  Do they bring their hard left Marxist philosophy into the class room?  Do they use their powerful position in front of our kids as a bully pulpit to meld their minds with leftist mumbo-jumbo?  Do they walk into the class room every day with a Marxist agenda to spew their Socialist glitter over our unsuspecting kids?  We parents hope that isn't the case, but do we really know what is going on in the class rooms at our elementary schools, our middle school, and our high school?  We all want our kids to learn how to think and not what to think, but we know public schools seem to be moving toward being an indoctrination camp of Marxist principles for that ever elusive Utopia.

With that said, I read the below Letter to the Editor in this week's Spectator and a shiver went down my spine.  It wasn't a good feeling to know this particular teacher (whom I do respect as a teacher) has these extreme opinions.  Certainly she has every right to write and publish the letter and to think the way she wants to think (that is called freedom).  My concern is where the line is drawn between her personal extreme opinions and the class room curriculum.  Do her opinions about the efficacy of teachers' unions and of Governor Walker get class room time?  Are our kids subjected to her leftist ideology day in and day out?  Does she use her position as a teacher to indoctrinate the students to worship unions and to spread lies about Scott Walker?  Does she really believe teachers are the only people facing higher health insurance costs?  Does she really believe vouchers and charter schools are evil (especially in inner cities)?  Even worse, are our kids subjected to this nonsense in the class room? 

Unfortunately, Ms. Barry believes public schools should have an infinite check book to do whatever they want or face the scourge of teachers' unions (the dreaded strike).  How dare anyone challenge a union?  How dare we ask teachers to pay more in health costs?  How dare we ask teachers to be held accountable based on results?  How dare inner cities open charter schools where public schools have completely failed the kids?  

The victims of teachers' unions are our kids and the taxpayers.  When a collective mob of people band together to make unreasonable demands of everyone else, collectivism and socialism is upon you and you better give in or face the consequences.  

Ms. Barry's letter stands as a call to Communism and should have ended "Teachers of the world, unite!"....I hope she knows better to keep this leftist ideology out of our class rooms.

After much deliberation with myself within my own skull, I decided to take a short sabbatical from blogging, but will keep the blog online and available on the Internet. 

I actually received many favorable emails from readers saying they would miss the blog if I were to take it offline. I did take if offline on 3/13/2015, but it bothered me to keep it offline, so I have put it back online and will take a short sabbatical instead.

All for Nothing....

It has been determined it was all for nothing!  

No minds were changed, no epiphanies were reached, no one changed their world view, ideologies were unaffected, philosophies remained unscathed....everything remained as it was prior to the beginning of this endeavor.  

There was lots of pushing and shoving, but everyone held their ground and refused to budge. Many maintained their places or even were emboldened more than before.  There always felt like there was movement during the ebb and flow of discussion, but it was likely dizziness in the head more than anything else.

When all is said and done, polarization remains perfectly intact.  We are all standing where we started in the beginning.  

It really was all for nothing...

With that said, this blog (Notes From Underground) is going offline tonight...

No Energy Cost Reprieve For You!

Usually we get a cyclical reprieve.  During the summer months, natural gas prices go down as electricity prices go up (usage also factors into this).  Then, during winter months, natural gas prices go up as electricity prices are lower.  Not anymore!  Now, both electricity and natural gas prices are rapidly rising regardless of the season.  There is no break and there is no reprieve.  

Prices just keep climbing and climbing at a very steep trajectory.  This is certainly hurting my family and it is probably hurting your family too.  This is something that impacts everything.  High costs for natural gas and electricity impacts the stores we shop at, it impacts the schools, it impacts the grocery bill...in fact it impacts every single financial transaction we make in life, from buying a pack of gum at the Country Store to buying a car to shopping at Stop and Shop.  Nothing is immune from the clutches of higher energy prices...nothing!   Inflationary energy prices are seriously hurting my family economically. It is tough to survive these high costs, which seem hell-bent on pushing us toward bankruptcy.

I can tell you without a doubt, my family's income is significantly outpaced by our expenses right now and inflationary energy prices are the blame.

As you know, this is primarily the fault of Barack Hussein Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency.  Sharing blame are our liberal quack politicians on Beacon Hill and the feckless albeit useless United States Congress.  They have all failed us miserably!

I leave you with some scary charts of the real story of energy prices right here in Somerset, MA (Note: the time-frame is different on these charts, but the linear trendline is nearly identical when we look at per unit cost of energy):

Hillary Clinton is a Real P.O.S.

What a P.O.S. Hillary Clinton is!  She is just an absolute piece of crap and beneath pond scum.  She is a lying and deceitful troll that should have been vetted as such many years ago.  How in the world is this great nation even considering this Marxist liar as president is just so incredible to me.  She is a liar and a deceitful hypocrite and her husband is a perverted sexist that was impeached and disbarred!  How could anyone with an IQ above 20 consider Hillary Clinton for president?  

Hillary Clinton said in her news conference: "I opted for convenience to use my personal email account, which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails, instead of two. Looking back, it would have been better if I simply used a second email account, but at the time, this didn't seem like an issue."  

Are you kidding us Hillary?  It is against the law and you admitted to breaking the law in the news conference.  We all know you did this so you could delete emails from YOUR server without a trace of evidence.  I'm sure all the Benghazi email correspondence has been forever deleted.  I'm sure you have covered all your tracks so no one can pin anything on you or Obama.  We all know this is why you maintained your own email server, you lying witch!  

Here are just some of the articles on this scandal floating around the Internet today:

Hillary Clinton: 'It would have been better' if I used official email

I’ve deleted all my personal emails and the server will remain private: Hillary Clinton reveals HALF her inbox has not been handed over and says she used one account for convenience

Clinton: I ‘Opted For Convenience’ Only Having Private Email Account

Clinton says did not email classified material to anyone while at State

CLINTON CONCEDES SHE SHOULD HAVE USED GOVERNMENT EMAIL

In addition, only pre-approved questions and media (approved by Clinton's close staff) could ask questions of Hillary during the presser.  The very first question was "If you were a man today, would all this fuss be being made?"  Are you serious?  So, if Hillary had a penis versus a vagina there would be no questions about this scandal?  This is the first question asked? The very first question pertains to genitalia?  WOW!  That member of the press should be stripped of all credentials, tarred, and feathered wearing a dunce cap in Times Square.  Perhaps that would be too kind....

There is really no hope for America when this P.O.S. is a front runner for President of the United States!  THERE IS NO HOPE!!!!

Idiot Republicans!

"Republicans" will raise the government’s borrowing limit (debt ceiling) with absolutely no fight since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell guaranteed he will surrender the party’s leverage yesterday: McConnell vows to raise debt limit without threat of shutdown or default.  Mitch McConnell has fully surrendered to Barack Hussein Obama and the Democratic Party.  There is really no reason to have a Republican Party since they vote and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Democratic Party on every single major issue.

Perhaps now is the time to group them all together into the new Statist Party?  Then, we could vote for degrees of Statism of candidates.  Everyone will be part of the Statist Party which fights for uncontrolled spending, uncontrolled debt, bigger government, more intrusive government, repealing privacy rights, repealing the Constitution, nullifying the Bill of Rights, advocating Communism, open borders, etc.  The suggested donation is your soul and then you'll be a card carrying member!

How about this one:  6.5 Million People With Active Social Security Numbers Are 112 or Older.  The Social Security Administration's inspector general has identified 6.5 million SS# holders age 112 (or older) for whom no death date has been entered in the main electronic file.  The audit concluded that Social Security Administration lacks the controls necessary to keep track of actual dead people!  Imagine the fraud going on with many of those 6.5 million social security numbers!!  Perhaps we can hand these fraudulent SS# cards to the illegal immigrants and Obama amnesty recipients crossing our borders?

Even worse:  Illegal immigrants who took advantage of President Obama’s illegal and unlawful executive actions on immigration will soon collect another benefit: Social Security. Starting in 2017, the Social Security Administration expects that thousands of illegal immigrants will begin collecting from the Old-Age, Survivor’s, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program as a direct result of the president’s illegal and unlawful actions.  The story is at National Review.  So-called Republicans (the new Statist Party) also fully funded that illegal and unlawful executive action last Tuesday right after Benjamin Netanyahu's speech before the joint session of Congress (just so you didn't notice...).

Doesn't big leviathan government with tentacles everywhere work so well for you?

St. Patrick’s 'Social Justice' Committee

In light of the absolute nonsensical and infinitely dangerous opinion of Dolores Blais, Gene Boyle, Homer Depin, Ann Flynn, Sheila Matthews, Don Mayer and Steve Menard known as the St. Patrick’s Social Justice Committee of Somerset, MA (see their letter to the Herald News: Give diplomacy a chance, Speaker Boehner), please watch the YouTube video of a real life world leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel.  Before a joint session of Congress on March 3, 2015, Netanyahu warns the world of the ramifications of a nuclear Iran and the danger of negotiating with the Islamic Nazi sponsor of genocidal terrorism (including Hamas and Hezbollah).

Casino Proposal Dead In Somerset

According to the Herald News, it appears Somerset is out of the running for the resort casino. New Bedford is also out of the running and it appears Brockton will be the winner: Brockton emerges as likely winner of final casino license .  Per the story:
By Wednesday, Somerset had yet to receive a proposal from developers Crossroads Massachusetts and Somerset on the Move LLC, said Selectmen Chairman Donald Setters.
Setters said “we’re expecting one any time, any hour.” But even if the proposal arrives quickly, the timeline for Somerset is challenging. The town is scheduled to hold its annual election May 11. A casino proposal could be placed on that ballot, Setters said.
However, because state gaming law requires at least 60 days between the scheduling of a casino vote and the referendum, Somerset would have to receive a proposal, reach a host agreement and call for the election by March 26.
So, it is time to move on Selectmen.  Time to move on from this very bad idea toward economic development that is real, lasting, and will generate actual tax revenue for Somerset. We've wasted valuable time tinkering with a casino proposal and now we are nearly two years away from losing Brayton Point.  What is plan B?  Please don't rehash the solar and wind farm idea!  

The Selectmen and the Economic Development Committee need to tell residents what plan B is and tell us now...tick tock tick tock....

President Clinton [Again]

One can only comment on Hillary Clinton's illegal and improper use of personal email for official government business only if one has both a vagina and boobs.  Otherwise, you are a misogynist and a woman hater.  Of course, her husband was a ultra-perverted misogynist who received blow jobs in the White House, but that is beside the point.  Oh, he was also impeached by the House of Representatives for lying under oath and disbarred from the Arkansas and United States Supreme Court, but that is beside the point too.  Let us stay on course with the issue at hand.  

Here is the New York Times article:  Membership in Clinton’s Email Domain Is Remembered as a Mark of Status

Consider this:  Chelsea called herself Diane Reynolds – and Hillary planned her wedding on same account she used as Secretary of State: Secrets of Clinton emails revealed:

  • At the center of the controversy: Hillary Clinton's personal email account - hrd22@clintonemail.com
  • Domain name was registered to Eric Hothem, the aide who packed up and carted off furniture from the White House that he said was 'Clinton’s personal property'
  • The furnishings were later determined to be government's and the Clintons were required to pay $86,000 in restitution for the items they kept
  • Clinton's arrangement to have her correspondence run through a private domain name and server have set off alarms
  • Her sensitive communications could be being hacked or destroyed: Republicans want investigations into the matter

How about these articles:

A Hillary Clinton Email the State Department Couldn't Find


How do you like your next President of the United States?  Hillary seems just as honest and honorable as her ultra-perverted misogynist husband.  She has been duly anointed as the Democratic leader in the 2016 Presidential race and she is the presumptive nominee for president of the Democrat Party.  In all likelihood, she will be elected the next President of the United States because the Republicans are feckless and only pick losers like Mitt Romney and John McCain or yet another Bush.  It is just plain sickening!!!!

So, it is time you get used to hearing "President Clinton" again!

Joe Sexton's Herald News Letter Dissected

I'm trying to decipher and understand Joe Sexton's (of Westport, MA) Herald News letter titled The Brayton Point debate for dummies.  I read it many times and it strikes me as incoherent gibberish written by someone with low intelligence.  Perhaps if we dissect the letter one paragraph at a time, we can try to understand where Mr. Sexton is coming from and perhaps we can agree or disagree with the content and coherence.  Shall we begin?

Paragraph #1:  Mr. Sexton begins his letter by stating "I have to laugh at how far some people go into the twilight zone when it comes to Brayton Point Power Station shutting down. To hear them tell it, this is proof positive of the tyrannical “dear leader’s” anti-coal, anti-American energy bias. That and the unfair regulations that are making it impossible for the poor stockholders to make a profit."  I do not understand the "dear leader" reference.  Usually that is a reference to the deceased tyrannical and despotic leader of North Korea, Dictator Kim Jong-Il.  Is Mr. Sexton comparing and contrasting Obama with Kim Jong-Il or is this just to be funny?  Likely the later.  Be that as it may, does Mr. Sexton really deny the fact that Barack Hussein Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have implemented thousands of environmental regulations that target emissions from coal-fired power plants?  Carbon-dioxide limits imposed by Obama and the EPA are a key part of Obama’s climate agenda.  In 2013, the EPA set emissions limits that would effectively ban the construction of any new coal-fired power plant unless they utilized a carbon capture and sequestration system. In 2014, the EPA moved to limit substantially the emissions from existing power plants, including Brayton Point. These EPA regulations were effectively designed to put older coal-fired plants out of commission (which is why Brayton Point is closing in 2017).  Does Mr. Sexton doubt the above truths?  

Paragraph #2:  "Don’t forget the immense pressure the 30 or so tree-hugging do-gooders and their puny lobster boat had in forcing the demonized, well-intentioned owners to throw in the towel. Businesses like these are the victims of a concerted socialist redistribution scheme that is threatening our very freedom. “Obama derangement syndrome” is the only thing holding their failed ideology together."  Does Mr. Sexton really believe that 30 or so environmentalists dressed in red shirts and a single lobster boat placed "immense pressure" on Dominion or caused Dominion to "throw in the towel"?  That is simply ludicrous on all levels.  Yet, Mr. Sexton is absolutely correct that the power generating industry is the target and the victims of Obama's Socialist agenda to close power plants that use fossil fuels.  It is Obama exercising unconstitutional power and control via the EPA against Brayton Point to close the plant forever.  That is the point, Mr. Sexton.  This is a redistribution of wealth scheme where Obama picks the winners ("green" energy) and the losers (coal-fired power plants).  The wealth is redistributed from one (existing fossil fuel plants) to the other (green energy initiatives) by way of EPA regulations designed to put the loser (Brayton Point) out of business.  I cannot comment on the last sentence since it makes no sense when read with the paragraph.  I'm not sure what "Obama derangement syndrome" is or how it is holding up a failed ideology.  What failed ideology?  I don't know who "their failed ideology" references in this sentence either.  I guess we'll just have to chalk that last sentence up to incoherence and illiteracy by Mr. Sexton.

Paragraph #3:  "The Republican Party is like the dog who finally caught the car and doesn't know what to do. So far, “America’s New Congress” is looking a lot like the old one. They still won’t work with the Democrats and they still can’t get along with themselves. They are in charge and the Democrats are still to blame."  I certainly agree with Mr. Sexton on this point.  The Republican Party (especially the establishment leadership) is feckless and comprised of lying hypocrites (John Boehner and Mitch McConnell).  I have much disdain for this Republican Party and this Congress because they surrendered the power of the purse and they have taken impeachment off the table.  They have castrated themselves and have nullified their own powers under the Constitution to confront a tyrannical and despotic president named Barack Hussein Obama.

Paragraph #4:  "Propaganda is always geared toward the lowest common denominator and these guys are scratching bedrock. They’ve made it so simple you only have to remember one thing to be qualified to speak on any subject. Obama did it. No matter what. I would be willing to bet that the hardcore right wingers reflexively blaming President Barack Obama for Brayton Point are the same rubes that were flapping their lips about how great the deregulation of utilities was going to turn out. I guess if you don’t see the irony in that, you have made it under the IQ limbo pole and into the club."   Yes, Mr. Sexton, liberal propaganda is always geared toward the lowest common denominator and the message is spread through the liberal controlled media.  That is how socialist liberals work.  The 'hardcore right wingers' Mr. Sexton references here are those of us that believe our political leaders should uphold and defend the United States Constitution like they swore to do when taking office.  Obama is to blame because Obama is to blame, but I admit Congress is all too willing to go along with his usurpation of the Constitution.  As a result, America is unmoored from the Constitution and nearly eight trillion dollars in debt has been added to the deficit by Obama and Congress.

Paragraph #5:  "What the regulation of utilities amounted to was ensuring both a reasonable profit and a reasonable cost, so the owner and the customer were both happy. This is actually what Socialism is by definition."  Mr. Sexton, the definition of Socialism is a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies (Miriam-Webster).  Your definition is not correct.  Anyway, who defines "reasonable profit"?  Who defines "reasonable cost"?  Who determines if the customers are happy?  Oh, I know, the masterminds of society like Barack Hussein Obama and his liberal brethren.  Obama decides what is reasonable for profit and cost and he decides who is happy or unhappy.  He controls everything since he is the mastermind tyrant that is omnipotent!  On the flip side, I believe in laissez-faire capitalism which naturally defines profit, cost, and consumer happiness...

Paragraph #6:  "It is the exact opposite of conservatism. Most of the people with the tools upstairs to think for themselves are beginning to understand this. The house of cards is slipping and the desperation is obvious. The only base they have left are the same people that alienate them from everyone else."  This is the most incoherent paragraph in Mr. Sexton's letter.  He should be embarrassed to have published this gibberish and nonsense.  I think he is trying to say that the opposite of Socialism is conservatism.  However, his definition of Socialism is incorrect in the preceding paragraph and I don't want to guess what his definition of conservatism is.  Anyway, I have nothing to say about this particular paragraph because it is entirely incoherent, meaningless, and nonsensical.

Paragraph #7:  "The history they ignore at all costs is repeating itself. They are back to blaming commies and those they see as “others” for everything. In the McCarthy era as now, the only people left believing are the aptly described “lunatic fringe.”"  This paragraph is also teetering on incoherence and nonsense like the preceding paragraph.  I take it that Mr. Sexton thinks conservatives are blaming 'commies' like in the Senator McCarthy era?  I don't know about that, but as a constitutional conservative myself, I do blame Barack Hussein Obama for many things including the demise of Brayton Point Power.  I also blame RINO Republicans as well.  Certainly if you read the 400+ blog posts I've written since 2013 you will see where I am coming from.

So, there you have it.  Aside from Mr. Sexton's incoherent writing, nonsensical logic, fact-less and blabbering idiocy, we have a true inarticulate Marxist in Westport, MA who apparently goose steps with Barack Hussein Obama on all accounts.  Mr. Sexton is a liberal sycophant who clearly does not understand freedom, liberty, private property rights or the United States Constitution.  What is good, though, is the fact that he clearly demonstrated his inability to write clearly and articulately.  In fact, now that I've dissected this piece, I've concluded it is complete rubbish and an incoherent mess. Certainly this incoherent letter makes Mr. Sexton's position lack all credibility and he should be embarrassed and ashamed to have published this in the newspaper.

Reuse Meeting: Crackpots and Nut Jobs

Tonight at the Somerset Berkley Regional High School, residents are urged to attend the Somerset Power Plant Reuse Meeting, kicking off at 6pm in the performing arts center.  The meeting agenda is posted online.  Residents are urging one another to attend the meeting as is the Herald News.

One can go back and review the meeting summary from the prior kick-off meeting.

It is comical to me that taxpayer money is being squandered away (actually pissed away is a better phrase here) on this utter nonsense!  Actually, it really isn't comical at all.  It is sad and pathetic, but typical of the liberals in Somerset and the Commonwealth.  Taxpayer money is being used to "study" something no one has any control over.  This is akin to pissing away taxpayer money to "study" what to do with the Horner Millwork property or "study" what to do with Ma Raffas or "study" what to do with Teamworks.  This is also akin to pissing away taxpayer money to "study" what color my neighbor should paint his house or "study" how long I wish him to keep his lawn.  You get my drift?  

Not one single person at tonight's meeting has any authority or right or legal standing to tell Dynegy, Inc. or William Thibeault what they must do with the properties they exclusively own and operate as private property and private corporations.  No one has any legal standing to direct or suggest what these companies should do with the property they do not own.  NO ONE!!  The entire meeting and reuse premise is completely false.  Attending this meeting is a true exercise in futility!

I took a few minutes to read the meeting minutes from the prior reuse meeting.  Some of the crackpots and nut jobs at the last meeting noted their "dream" to build a quaint shopping and restaurant area with a park, bike trails, and walking trails.  It isn't clear if this person has secured funding to go forward with their plans or it they obtained permission to do so. Another crackpot said "my hope" is to find a profitable use for these sites that doesn't use any fossil fuels and is not considered "heavy industrial use" (I guess they don't want the new place to have electricity or heat which is tough for a New England location).  Another environmental crackpot said "we would really like to use this as an opportunity to have a non-fossil fuel use for the sites; this is a chance for a cleaner, healthier town."  What a bunch of environmental crackpots and nut jobs!   

As you can tell, the real agenda for most of the attendees is to make sure both Montaup and Brayton Point never burn fossil fuels again.  One doesn't need to attend this meeting to ensure that.  Obama and his EPA will make certain Montaup and Brayton point will never burn fossil fuels again!  Read my blog post from yesterday to understand the real reasons both of these power plants will remain closed forever (hint: it is because of Obama and the EPA).  Please also see my prior postings on this reuse subject matter:  'Climategate' Fraud and SomersetSomerset's Power Plant Reuse Nonsense, Environmentalists Lying In Somerset, and I Wish, I Hope, I Pray.

Do yourself a favor and save yourself some time and aggravation...stay home tonight and don't bother partaking in the utter nonsense at the high school (unless you like to mingle with crackpots, nut jobs, and environmental crazies)......

Is Joe Kennedy III Really This Stupid?

I was going to post about how the Obama administration in 2014 threatened to shoot down Israeli Air Force (IAF) jets to thwart a mission by Israel to stop Iran's nuclear bomb program (Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike).  To think America would stop this Israeli mission by shooting down IAF jets and take the side of Iran is unbelievable to me.  But, there are reports the story is not true (Why Obama Order to Shoot Down Israeli Jets Most Likely Untrue).  Who really knows if the story is true or false or somewhere in the middle, but wouldn't this this speak volumes of Barack Hussein Obama, John Kerry, and this administration?  Time will tell if this was some sort of Kuwaiti propaganda or Iranian propaganda ahead of Netanyahu's Congressional speech.

Instead, I decided to post about the article appearing in the Herald News titled Kennedy keeps up protests against electric rate auction; columnist cites 'price-gouging'.  The columnist the Herald News cites is Mr. David Cay Johnston from Al Jazeera America titled Financiers and power producers rig electricity markets.  Relative to Brayton Point, he also wrote Enron-style price gouging is making a comeback and Blame dysfunctional markets for our economic malaise.  Perhaps there is more out there from this Al Jazeera America columnist relative to Brayton Point.  This price gouging allegation has been out there for a while now and Representative Joe Kennedy III has been pretty vocal about blaming FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) and Energy Capital Partners, the current "owners" of Brayton Point Energy, LLC (currently being sold to Dynegy, Inc.) about high electricity prices and lower capacity issues in our region.

Clearly, Joe Kennedy III, Al Jazeera America, Mr. David Cay Johnston, and anyone concerned about this issue needs to step back one hundred steps and remember how we have arrived at where we are right now.  

First, there is no such thing as a competitive, market driven electrical energy producing market in the United States of America.  Capitalism does not exist in the electrical energy market.  The free market system of supply and demand and laissez-faire capitalism simply does not exist in the electrical energy market.  That ship sailed away a long, long time ago. Instead, consumer prices are heavily regulated and set by the federal government.  The distribution of electricity is heavily regulated and directed by FERC.  The laws of supply and demand do not exist in this market. FERC sets electricity rates and decides how much supply exists for consumers (thereby controlling demand).  FERC decides who produces what and for how much and all major decision making resides exclusively with FERC.  FERC is an example of a monopolistic entity that controls the price, the supply, and the demand for the energy market, including electricity produced by Brayton Point.  That federal commission is at the pinnacle of all energy decisions made in the United States, not just limited to price and supply.

Second, Barack Hussein Obama and his Environmental Protection Agency's non-stop war on fossil fuel burning electricity generating plants have rendered coal-fired plants virtually unprofitable.  Like FERC, the EPA is another massive federal entity that heavily regulates the electrical energy market by imposing hefty rules and regulations and massive fines against any plant that burns fossil fuels (exclusively at the direction of Obama).  The EPA forced the erection of the cooling towers, for example.  The EPA heavily regulates all aspects of Brayton Point's operations as well as the industry of coal mining, coal storage, coal shipments, coal unloading, etc.  Virtually every particular aspect from mining the coal to burning the coal (and everything in between) is heavily regulated by the EPA at the direction of Obama.  This heavy regulation adds billions of dollars in costs to the production that are simply passed onto the consumers of electricity, so long as FERC agrees to pass the cost along.  Because of all of these massive and unrelenting regulations by the federal government via FERC and the EPA (and there are many, many more including the MA Cap & Trade law), Brayton Point can no longer generate electricity profitably and will shut the plant down forever in May, 2017.

My message to Joe Kennedy III and Al Jazeera columnist Mr. David Cay Johnston is this:  It is the federal government, stupid!  It is the federal government that aimed its regulatory sites upon Brayton Point with the goal of closing the plant forever.  It is the federal government, through its massive regulatory powers, that has sought to shut down Brayton Point and it does not matter if Dominion owns it or Energy Capital Partners or Dynegy. Regardless of the owner, the federal government has summarily regulated Brayton Point to death.  It is a death by a million expensive rules and regulations that cost billions of dollars to implement and maintain.  There are no 'price gougings' or 'dysfunctional markets' or 'rigging the systems' here. This is an extreme example of how the federal government has the regulatory power to snuff out a needed and viable industry.  It was always Obama's goal to kill the fossil-fuel burning industry.  That was the stated goal at the outset of his presidency. Mission accomplished for Obama.  Brayton Point is just one of many coal-fired plants in the nation to shutter due to the aforementioned reasons.  These reasons have nothing to do with 'price gouging' or 'rigging the system' and everything to do with the federal government possessing way too much power over all aspects of our lives.  It is really that simple...

Is Joe Kennedy III really this stupid to not understand the real reasons electricity prices are so high and why we face an electricity short fall in the region?  Certainly not, this is just another grand standing effort by this 'red headed menace' to seize more power and control on behalf of the federal government (which he and his family is forever beholden).  Liberals never let an opportunity to seize power and control slip out of their greedy little fingers. Liberals are the masters of creating problems and solving them with more problems. Liberals love government and the bigger the better.  If big government doesn't work, then only bigger government can solve the problem.  So, for this 'red headed menace', if FERC isn't working, then more rules, more regulations, and more government is needed to make it work.  A Super-FERC to oversee FERC.  For Joe Kennedy III, it is only bigger and more intrusive government that will fix mankind's problems.  To hell with freedom and liberty!!  

This really feels like beating one's head against the wall.....it is almost pointless to even discuss this crap...

Obama's Middle Finger Pointed At You!

What I've posted below is a virtual plethora of various actions the federal government, the federal bureaucracy, Congress, and the Obama administration are currently doing right now to thwart the constitution.  These are all current items where elected members of Congress, the president, or the bureaucracy is actively usurping the constitution of the United States of America right before our eyes!

First up, Loretta Lynch cleared a key vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday in her bid to become the nation’s next attorney general, picking up support from three so called Republicans on the panel in favor of her confirmation.  All the Democrats voted for her.  The vote was 12-8. The three RINO Pseudo-Republicans who backed her nomination were dumb a$$ Orrin Hatch of Utah, moron Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and the imbecile Jeff Flake of Arizona.  Check out the story here:  Lynch clears committee with three GOP votes. Loretta Lynch, under oath, pledge support for Obama's illegal executive amnesty and she confirmed herself to be a radical left Marxist who supports Obama's illegal actions and would be no different than Eric Holder on race baiting and class warfare tactics.  These three losers along with the Democrats are responsible for yet another Eric Holder racist to be installed into the attorney general post.  All the Republicans needed to do were to vote No and force Obama to pick a non-racist, non-bigoted attorney general nominee that would uphold the constitution of the United States.  Is that too much to ask?  Sickening...

Speaking of Obama's illegal amnesty, some of these illegal aliens who came here illegally and unlawfully may be able to claim more than $35,000 in tax benefits paid by the rest of the suckers in America.  See the story here: AMNESTY BENEFICIARIES COULD CLAIM MORE THAN $35K IN TAX BENEFITS IN FIRST YEAR

Next up, gun control and violating the 2nd amendment to the constitution.  Instead of banning guns, Obama is banning bullets and ammunition used in popular guns.  As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.  See the story here:  Obama to ban bullets by executive action, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle.

One main thing the federal government is supposed to do for Americans is protect us from foreign and domestic enemies and provide for and maintain a Navy (i.e. military - see Article one, Section 8, Clause 13-14 of the constitution).  Yet, under Obama and Congress, the United States military is hollowed out and decimated to the point where our military is only marginally able to defend the United States of America.  At the same time, China and Russia's military is expanding dramatically and overtaking our military strength by leaps and bounds.  China and Russia are on the move militarily and America is going backwards. See the story here:  U.S. military decimated under Obama, only ‘marginally able’ to defend nation.

How about this, the United States Treasury made $3 billion in unlawful payments to private, for profit health insurers, yet Congress never authorized the payments through annual appropriations.  That is $3 billion in our tax dollars sent to multi-billion dollar private corporations!  And the Treasury refuses to explain the decision or the payments!!  Treasury won't explain decision to make $3 billion in Obamacare payments.

One last thing, which is the worst recent news of all.  Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a non-elected federal government agency, voted three-to-two to reclassify broadband Internet as a common carrier service under Title II of the Communications Act.  The Internet is not and was not broken or in any need of any governmental regulations, yet the federal government indulged in a massive power grab to regulate the Internet and freedom of speech. It may be the biggest power grab in modern American history!  Government Internet (Department of the Internet) means de facto censorship of speech and expression and and the final nullification of the 1st amendment. The one last bastion of freedom is now being heavily regulated by the federal government. This blog cannot have genuine freedom of expression and speech with a governmental monitor, a bureaucratic overseer, and a tyrannical censor mastermind looking over my shoulder ready to shut me down due to the anti-government content (or any other reason). Read this article:  FCC Net Neutrality rules worst example of government intervention... ever.  

Obama has his pen and his phone and is playing catch me if you can.  He is going all out usurping the constitution and no one can keep up with him, especially not the courts and certainly not Congress.  Hell, Congress funds everything Obama does, no questions asked. In fact, Congress already announced they will never impeach Obama and will never shut down the government, so they have castrated themselves with their only weapons (those are really the only two weapons Congress possesses).  Obama is even daring Congress to take a vote on Obama's illegal and unconstitutional actions:  Obama Dares GOP: Go Ahead, ‘Have a Vote on Whether What I’m Doing Is Legal…I Will Veto’.  

Catch me if you can....Obama has his middle finger up and extended toward Congress and the American people!  The United States is far into a post constitutional era of lawlessness. America is beyond a constitutional crisis and is no longer a Republic.  The sacred document that binds 'we the people' has been trampled upon, violated, and spat upon by Obama and Congress.  Tyranny is now upon us...a despotic president with his nose in the air and his middle finger waved at everyone but himself.  The fundamental transformation from a Constitutional Republic to soft tyranny to all out dictatorship is well underway....it is happening right before our very eyes!
