The Pelosi-Reid Economy

In January 2007, when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid took control of Congress, the unemployment rate was 3.8% and the national debt was $466.9 billion. Today, unemployment is 9.8% and the nation is $13 trillion in debt.

Pelosi and Reid have tried to convince voters they inherited all the debt from President Bush, but it was their bailouts, takeovers and power grabs that have blown the budget for years to come. These bills were written by Democrats and made law with Democrat votes.

The only thing that changed when President Obama took office is that the Democrats’ economic agenda went from bad to worse. The Democrats have made the big-spending Republicans they knocked out of power in 2006 look like bean counters.

The first failed stimulus bill written by the Democrats to issue $600 checks so America could go shopping was crowned with the mother of all government handouts when President Obama signed his $787 billion stimulus bill in 2009. The Democrats topped that off with yet another “jobs bill” worth $678 billion, last March. Three stimulus bills and trillions of dollars later, what do American taxpayers have to show for it? Three straight years of job losses.

Stop the Spending. Support the Comeback.

The Pelosi-Reid 2008 stimulus also approved $300 billion in new loans for the Federal Housing Authority for risky, sub prime borrowers and authorized Treasury to start buying shares of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in July 2008.

In the fall of 2008, with an assist from then-presidential candidate Barack Obama who left the campaign trail for Washington to help broker the deal, Democrats wrote the $18.7 trillion TARP bill to bailout banks that couldn’t balance their books because of the trades they made on shaky housing loans.

When Republicans tried to block the second $650 billion installment of the TARP funds from being released in January 2009, the Democrats stopped them, even though there was little accounting for how the first $650 billion was spent. To this day, the public doesn’t know where all the TARP money has gone.

The Obama administration then gave Fannie and Freddie, organizations at the center of the financial meltdown, unlimited access to government coffers on Christmas Eve 2009. Today Fannie and Freddie own or guarantee half the nation’s mortgages, worth about $5.5 trillion. Experts estimate it will take between $889 billion to $1 trillion tax dollars to keep Fannie and Freddie afloat. After all these housing bailouts, more than a million homes are expected to be foreclosed this year–a record high.

The biggest debt bomb, however, didn’t come until 2010. It took the Pelosi-Reid Congress years to write their budget-crushing, 2,300-page health care takeover. When they were done, taxpayers were on the hook for more than $12.6 trillion to pay for the new federal health care entitlement by the year 2023.

Stimulus. TARP. ObamaCare. These three words are being written into the political obituaries of politicians who voted for the programs — for good reason. These three bills, made law by the Pelosi-Reid Congress in only three years, will take decades’ worth of work by regular folks, who dutifully clock in and out of their jobs 40 hours a week or more, to pay off.

In 2006 then-Senate Minority Leader Reid called President Bush and the Republican Congress “the most fiscally irresponsible in the history of our country” and said “no other president or Congress comes close.” That may have been true, until he and Speaker Pelosi took their gavels. Rather than cutting the deficit, they used the spending mistakes of the Bush-era as a license to pile up exponentially more debt.

The day Pelosi became speaker and Reid became leader, the government’s debt was 62% of gross domestic product. In 2012 government debt will be 100% of GDP. When the Obama stimulus bill passed in February 2009, 12.5 million Americans were unemployed. Today, 14.6 million Americans, 2 million more, are looking for work. Even more depressing is the fact that the jobs outlook remains bleak for years to come. The Obama administration’s economic team has forecast that the national unemployment rate will average 9% or higher until 2012.

The high unemployment and debt rates prove Democrats haven’t stimulated the economy. They’ve tranquilized it.

Stop the Job Losses. Support the Comeback.

In a little over three years of the Pelosi-Reid Congress, the number of unemployed has increased by over 2 million, federal spending has increased 25%, our national debt has increased by 122%, and yearly deficits have risen over 550%. Today, 71 cents of every dollar spent by Washington is borrowed from nations like China. The $3.6 trillion in federal spending this year is equal to $84,543 for every American household.

Americans simply cannot afford the Democrats’ agenda any longer. It’s time to enact commonsense policies we know will work. Conservatives will fight to pass a balanced budget amendment, repeal ObamaCare, eliminate wasteful pork-barrel spending, stop the Democrat tax increases and instead enact broad-based permanent tax relief. These are the pro-growth policies that will allow our economy to create long lasting jobs.

Although Obama won’t be on the ballot in November, the Pelosi-Reid economy will. Americans who have lost work as a consequence of their misguided economic plans should put the Democrats out of work, too.

Democrat Jokes That Seniors Should Be Denied End-Of-Life Healthcare

Democrat Gary McDowell is running to replace Bart Stupak (D, MI) in Michigan’s First District and while he may be hoping he might get the votes of seniors coming to the end of their time here on this mortal coil, he sure seems reticent to give them the medical care they’ll need to be around much longer after the election!

Congressman Gary McDowell

At a campaign appearance, McDowell agreed with those Obamacare supporters that think giving lifesaving medical care to seniors at end of life is a “resource” that needs to be rationed.

McDowell even makes a joke of the issue by saying that those that say end-of-life care should be rationed must be “from a safe district” because the “inconvenient truth” as he sees it is a tough pill to swallow.

Death panels, anyone?

Like a true Democrat McDowell thinks that setting up death panels should be swathed in less alarming language but that they should still be set up. “I was more diplomatic in not mentioning the end of life,” he said to those gathered. Yet he still meant to talk about how we need to ration healthcare at the end of life because “as adults” we need to accept McDowell’s “truth” that it’s just too expensive to save grandma’s life.

Let’s hope that Michiganders vote for Doctor Dan Benishek instead of McDowell for Michigan’s First.

U.S. Ignores Threat Of Islamic Shariah Law

Terrorists are covertly using Islamic Shariah law as a non-violent way to destroy the United States while the government ignores the threat, according to a bipartisan group of highly accomplished military, terrorism and national security experts.

The veteran officials from the CIA, FBI, U.S. military as well as a former Justice Department prosecutor assert that Shariah law—
Method of Shariah

the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism—has created a threat similar to the Soviet communist ideology that aimed to defeat the west and tyrannize the world.

They refer to Shariah as the “pre-eminent totalitarian threat of our time,” in a report (Shariah, The Threat to America) published this week by a non-partisan group that studies national security.

A lengthy investigation determined that the violent threat created by Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations is outmatched by the hazards from jihadists looking to change American society from within. "This form of warfare includes multi-layered cultural subversion, the co-opting of senior leaders, influence operations and propaganda and other means of insinuating Shariah into Western societies," the report says.

As an example of a powerful organization trying to achieve that goal it cites the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group that advocates terrorism against Israel and the west and is known as the parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda. Just last month, in its fervent crusade to befriend Muslims, the White House hosted special workshops to provide radical Islamic groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood direct access to U.S. government funding, assistance and resources.

Earlier in the year Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano covertly met with a group of extremist Arab, Muslim and Sikh organizations to discuss national security matters. Before that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a special order allowing the re-entry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties have for years banned them from the U.S.
Death by Stoning

The government should cease these sorts of outreach efforts to groups and individuals that want to destroy America from within, the security experts warn in their report. They also ask the Obama Administration to reconsider its stance that Islam is not linked to terrorism.

U.S. Helps Radical Muslim Groups Get Taxpayer Dollars

In its fervent crusade to befriend Muslims, the White House will host special workshops this week to provide members of radical Islamic groups with direct access to U.S. government funding, assistance and resources.

While this may sound surreal, it’s reality in the Obama Administration, which has embarked on a never-ending mission to befriend the enemy. Previous efforts include secret meetings between Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and extremist Arab and Muslim groups to discuss national security matters and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s special order allowing the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties have for years banned them from the U.S.

As contemptible as those moves may seem, the latest effort is even more outrageous. Various government agencies, including the departments of Homeland Security, Agriculture, Education and Health will participate in the White House seminars which were exposed by an independent nonprofit dedicated to monitoring the nation’s security.

The goal is to provide the leaders of groups associated with the parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda (Muslim Brotherhood) with tips on cutting through “red tape” when seeking U.S. government access or money. In all 20 national Muslim groups with ties to the global Islamist organization that preaches Jihad are scheduled to participate. Their mission is to obtain cash and other resources from Uncle Sam.

While the U.S. government has kept the event quiet, it was announced in a newsletter by a Saudi-funded group (Islamic Society of North America or ISNA) that was a co-conspirator in a federal terrorist funding case a few years ago. Featured in a Judicial Watch special report on Muslim charities that finance terrorism, ISNA is firmly committed to spreading the radical form of Islam, which is the driving force behind Jihad.

Now the Obama Administration is helping ISNA and its radical Islamic counterparts access American taxpayer resources as well as top government officials.

Napolitano Secretly Hosts Terrorist Groups In D.C.

In the Obama Administration’s latest effort to befriend radical Muslims, the cabinet official in charge of protecting the country’s safety covertly met with a group of extremist Arab, Muslim and Sikh organizations to discuss national security matters.

Briefing radical Islamists who want to murder Americans about homeland security measures may seem like a bizarre tactic to counter terrorism, but it’s the center of Obama’s famous change rhetoric. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, most concerned about a wave of anti-Muslim backlash after the Ft. Hood massacre, and her senior staff privately met in Washington D.C. with the groups. Among them was the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, which is a sort of parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda.

Not surprisingly, the mainstream media ignored the two-day event which was exclusively reported this week by an alternative internet news company that regularly breaks big stories. Napolitano actually spent and hour and a half briefing the Middle Easterners about the U.S. government’s new “counter-radicalization” and “anti-terrorist” programs largely aimed at their followers.

The top-secret event was part of President Obama’s innovative program aimed at creating an information-sharing framework with Muslim organizations, even those with known extremist ties and terrorist connections. The idea, laughable as it may seem, is to win over Muslims and get them to collaborate with the U.S. government.

Officially, the Department of Homeland Security billed the event as a low-key meeting with faith and community-based groups to brainstorm about ways to increase engagement, dialogue and information sharing. After all, the groups are key homeland security partners that contribute to American life and exemplify the diversity that is a hallmark of our country, the agency claimed in a press release.

Strengthening partnerships with these groups will help the U.S. better prepare, assess and respond to threats, Napolitano assures. This is the same official whose biggest concern was preventing a wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States after an Al Qaeda wannabe Army major went on a murderous rampage at the nation’s largest military base.

These are just some examples of the administration’s push to befriend the enemy. Last month Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order—intended as a sign of respect to Muslims around the world—to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties have for years banned them from the U.S. Just this week Obama ordered the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to focus on Muslim outreach and diplomacy, a rather unusual mission for the space agency.

Murdering America

We are all witnesses to the crime; the deliberate murder of the United States of America.

Death rattle of America
In just under a year and a half, the White House in collusion with the Democrats in Congress has conspired not to “save” America from a financial crisis they created, but to kill America through a series of multi-billion dollar “bailouts” that have two things in common. (1) They did not work and (2) they have created levels of national debt beyond anything in the entire previous history of the nation.

Seen in this light, they are a brilliant game plan for destroying what was once the greatest economy in the world. It was based entirely on capitalist principles of free market competition, constant innovation, and entrepreneurial enterprise. Tied now as we are to the economies of other nations, there’s not much good news of late.

The Obama administration has imposed the takeover of one sixth of the nation’s economy through its so-called health care “reform” and there are already revelations that it will not save money, but cost much more. It will deprive Americans of the right to make decisions with their physicians regarding all manner of treatment, some of which will literally determine life or death. It will reduce options for medical care as physicians, particularly in private practice, close their doors.

Writing in the June issue of Health Care News, John C. Goodman said, “Despite assurances, the Medicaid expansion included in the health care legislation signed by President Barack Obama is not another unfunded mandate foisted on the states, many states will find their budgets bloated with new Medicaid spending.” Goodman is CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis. It defied credibility that millions could be added to Medicare and Medicaid roles without raising the costs of these programs. In the end, Obamacare was forced upon Americans, the majority of whom opposed it and still do.

Among the priorities of a new Congress, in the event that power passes to the Republican Party, is the repeal of Obamacare.

The new financial “reforms” need to be rolled back as they too place limits on Wall Street that found itself victimized by the fact that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, two “government sponsored entities” are directly responsible for the housing bubble. It is insane that the federal government should hold the majority of mortgage loans. Yet the “reforms” just passed make no mention of either agency!

The Cap-and-Trade Act, renamed a “climate” bill and awaiting a vote in the Senate, would raise the cost of all energy use in the nation and literally destroy the economy. Likewise, the effort of the EPA to regulate carbon dioxide would have the same effect.

Another priority is to take General Motors off life-support for the unions that destroyed it through their salary, healthcare and pension demands. Here again, the federal government has no rational justification for such ownership. The most recent proposed bailout at a cost of $165 billion is yet another bailout for union pensions and this, too, is not a responsibility of American taxpayers.

There was a time in the nation’s history when unions were needed, but now they are largely parasitic, draining the treasuries of the federal and state governments, and no where is this more obvious than in the Service Employees International Union. Obama is so closely allied with SEIU that one wonders why so little attention was paid during the 2008 campaign. This union alone is alleged to have spent as much as $60 million to secure his election.

There are other government worker’s unions such as the teacher’s unions that exert political power in money, campaign manpower, and votes. The teacher’s unions have largely failed their mission to impart the most basic skills, leaving American students behind their counterparts in other nations. Their health and pension benefits, well in excess of the private sector, are a massive drain on the public treasuries of state governments.

There are only two protections left to Americans, the courts and the ballot box. The courts appear to moving far too slowly on the issue of constitutionality regarding Obamacare and, in particular, Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President.

All this demonstrates an astounding lack of power that has always being attributed to Wall Street and to corporations in general. Environmental opponents popularly refer to them as Big Oil, Big Coal, or Big Pharma. They appear to have no power against an aggressively Marxist President, his administration, and a Congress dominated by progressives.

On May 22nd, Rasmussen Reports revealed that 72% of likely voters say they are not confident that Congress knows what it’s doing as regards the economy. There has been little change in this opinion since September 2008.

The voters, however, have demonstrated their power in the election of a Republican as Senator from Massachusetts and two Republican Governors in formerly Blue States. The primaries are demonstrating that the only way to win is to be anti-Obama and the best way to lose is to be an incumbent participating in the destruction of the nation.

The current national state of mind is understandably one of growing fears and it should be in the face of the determined effort to destroy America.

Islamization of the United States

The Al-Rahman mosque in Orlando, Florida – a Muslim Brotherhood owned and operated property is caught funding terrorism via George Galloway, self admitted Hamas fundraiser and Imam Mahdi Bray, public Hamas supporter.

On June 14, 2009, George Galloway appeared at an event sponsored by the Islamic Society of Central Florida [ISCF]. Also in attendance was Mahdi Bray executive director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation [MASFF] at Imam Muhammad Musri's Al Rahman mosque in Orlando, Florida. The mosque is owned by the North American Islamic Trust [NAIT]. They rose over $55,000 in support of Galloway's Viva Palestina, a Hamas terror finance conduit.

George Galloway, who's Respect Party was defeated in the recent British general elections, lost his parliamentary immunity. In April of 2009, Canadian authorities barred his entry on behalf of Viva Palestina, a registered British charity he co-founded to raise funds for Gaza "humanitarian" convoys in direct support of Hamas. The US State Department did not declare him persona non grata and permitted his entry in the country in May and June of 2009. Galloway used that cover to considerable advantage. Over a period of a year, he was in the US virtually every weekend making appearances at universities such as Ohio State and the University of California at Irvine raising millions for humanitarian aid to be conveyed to the Hamas government via the Viva Palestina convoys.

Using Zakat fund for unholy cause:

Muslim charity Zakat is mandatory for every affluent Muslim, which has to be paid during each of the Arabic years. Zakat is calculated on the basis of net wealth and precious metals possessed by the Muslim for his or his family's use. The amount is one-fortieth of the net value.

According to information, billions of dollars are donated by Muslims to various Islamic charities and individuals every year from as Zakat. For past several years, a significant segment of the fund is used for funding Islamist terrorist groups as well as pro-Jihadist or pro-Islamist media and individuals in the world. Muslims living in the West are also paying their Zakat on a regular basis through the local community mosques or Islamic charities. It is already documented that, major volume of such donations goes for various Islamist terror outfits in the world.

The Holy Land Foundation was the largest Islamic charity in the United States. Headquartered in Richardson, Texas, it was originally known as Occupied Land Fund. In 2007, federal prosecutors brought charges against the organization for funding Hamas and other Islamist terrorist organizations. Prosecutors also named the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR], the Islamic Society of North America [ISNA], and the North American Islamic Trust as unindicted co-conspirators in the case.

Its assets were frozen by the European Union and U.S., and it was shut down by the U.S. government following the discovery that it was funding Hamas. The 2008 trial of the charity leaders was dubbed the "largest terrorism financing prosecution in American history." In 2009, the founders of the organization were given life sentences for "funneling $12 million to Hamas."

According information, collection of Zakat by Islamic Relief USA, the biggest Zakat collector has increased at least 30 percent during 2009-2010 and there is a clear indication of further rise in the coming years.

In the website of Islamic Relief USA, the organization claims, 79 per cent of people in Gaza lives in poverty [a huge lie]; 90 per cent of Palestinian children do not feel safe [false allegation against Israel]; and 120,000 Palestinian workers banned from leaving the area to find work [another false allegation against Israel]. This organization collects US$ 175 per month from the Muslims in United States for "buying for a family in Palestine". It also continues selling ideas of various projects and collects millions of dollars from the Muslims either as Zakat or personal donation.

And interestingly enough, Islamic relief USA runs a project named Al Askar to send money to children in school in 'Palestine'. Meaning of Al Askar is 'Soldier'. So, in other world, this US charitable organization is funding future soldiers for Hamar and other anti-Israel terror outfit.

Commenting on Zakat, President Obama said: "in the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfil their religious obligation. That is why I am committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfil Zakat"

Humm! Hope we all remember Mr. Obama's sending secret envoy to Hamas! From the above statement it gets clear that the President of United States of America will do everything to ensure that Muslim funding of terrorism will continue smoothly.

School children forced to pray to Allah:

And here is another story from Massachusetts. Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center - Boston's controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque - during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet information reveals that the students were being blatantly mis-educated about Islam. A mosque spokesperson told the children that in Mohammed's 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago. This seems to be an increasingly recurring theme in American schools - the denigration of western civilization and the glorification of Islamic history and values. In fact, just recently, the American Textbook Council revealed that the New York State high school regents exam whitewashes the atrocities that occurred during the imperialistic Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium, Persia, the African continent, and the Indian subcontinent, even as it demonizes European colonialism in South America.

The mosque spokesperson also taught the students that the only meaning of Jihad in Islam is a personal spiritual struggle, and that Jihad has historically had no relationship with holy war.

I would like to site here one example of a typical seventh grade text book named 'History Alive! The Medieval World and Beyond', produced by the Teacher's Curriculum Institute – despite its name, an aggressive privately held California-based educational publisher – noteworthy for its rapidly expanding popularity amongst textbook buyers. This company claims that its books are adopted in one-third of California's almost one thousand school districts. The book teaches that "Jihad represents the human struggle to overcome difficulties and do things that are pleasing to God. Muslims strive to respond positively to personal difficulties as well as worldly challenges. For instance, they might work to be better people, reform society, or correct injustice."

In another passage meant to explain Jihad, this book said: "Muslims should fulfil jihad with the heart, tongue, and hand. Muslims use the heart in their struggle to resist evil. The tongue may convince others to take up worthy causes, such as funding medical research. Hands may perform good works and correct wrongs."

One chapter in this book teaches adultery lessons on Islam.

Students visiting the mosque, irrespective of their religious identities, were forced to learn to pray to 'Allah' during this trip.

I am personally horrified to know all these things. But I am sure, President Obama isn't. There is possibly no reason to give explanation why he isn't. Let me mention here that, in Islam, killing certain "evil-doers," such as apostates or homosexuals, is a way of "correcting injustice"; overthrowing manmade constitutional orders [democracy] and replacing them with Sharia mandates, and subjugating women and non-Muslims, are ways of "reforming society." Those enforcing all this are, in fact, "better people" — indeed, according to the Koran [3:110], they are "the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong," that is, ruling according to Sharia law.

Islamic message in toys:

Since 1998, there are plenty of dolls in United States market as well as some 'games' for children, which teach them Islamic and Jihadist messages as well as verses from Koran. The doll will say "Islam is the light", or "Protect yourself from sins, wear veils". The game toys will recite Koranic verses while the children continue to play various games there. Most of such toys are manufactured in China and sent to Western countries and sold at a subsidized price.

DHS Memo Reveals Plan to Grant Administrative Amnesty to Entire Illegal Alien Population

The American Spectator reported last Thursday that a new leaked memo from the Department of Homeland Security clearly demonstrates the Obama Administration has been contemplating using its administrative power to grant amnesty to the entire illegal alien population. (The American Spectator, Sept. 16, 2010) FAIR has since obtained a copy of the memo, dated February 26, 2010, and is able to confirm its contents.
The beginning of the 10-page memo details how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has “long envisioned” a two-phase amnesty program to legalize “those who qualify and intend to stay here.” The first phase would include registration, screening, and the granting of “interim status that allows illegal aliens to work in the U.S.” The second phase would grant legal permanent resident status (i.e. green card status) to those who met additional requirements.
However, the memo goes on to explain how DHS can use “deferred action” or “deferred enforced departure” to circumvent Congress and still grant illegal aliens amnesty across the board. The memo reads: “In the absence of legislation, much of Phase 1 of the program could still be implemented, either by the Secretary of Homeland Security granting eligible applicants deferred action status, or the President granting deferred enforced departure.”

• Deferred action status is what Homeland Security grants when it decides, in its own discretion, not to remove an illegal alien. Those who receive deferred action status usually also receive work authorization. There is no statutory basis for deferred action status, as it is merely referred to in the federal regulations (See, e.g. USCIS Ombudsman memo, Apr. 6, 2007 (citing 8 C.F.R. 274a.12(c)(14)). The decision to grant deferred action status is unreviewable by the courts.

• Deferred enforced departure (DED) is a similar concept to deferred action, except that it requires a Presidential directive. Recipients of DED are not subject to removal from the United States, typically for a designated period of time, and usually receive work authorization. Like deferred action, there is no statutory basis for granting deferred enforced departure; it is a power based on the President’s authority to conduct foreign relations. (See USCIS website; see also DHS press release, Sept. 12, 2007)

Even more remarkable, the memo clearly contemplates the pros and cons of such unprecedented administrative action. Among the listed pros for such an action, the memo states: “A bold administrative program would transform the political landscape by using administrative measures to sidestep the current state of Congressional gridlock and inertia.” (emphasis added) However, among the cons, the memo states, “A program that reaches the entire population targeted for legalization would represent use of deferred action far beyond its limited class-based uses in the past…Congress may react by amending the statute to bar or greatly trim back on deferred action authority, blocking its use….”

Finally, the memo notes that “if going forward with a larger registration program that reaches the entire potential legalization population is not possible,” DHS still has other options. “We could propose a more narrowly-tailored registration program for individuals eligible for relief under the DREAM Act, AgJOBS, or other specifically defined subcategories.”

The memo concludes with a stunningly direct political analysis. “Done right, a combination of benefit and enforcement-related administrative measures could provide the Administration with a clear-cut political win. If the Administration loses control of the message, however, an aggressive administrative proposal carries significant political risk.” Regarding the timing of when to launch such measures, the memo states: “We would need to give the legislative process enough time to play out to deflect against charges of usurping congressional authority….This is likely to mean that the right time for administrative action will be late summer or fall—when the midterm election is in full-swing.” Then the memo cautions that if the American public reacts poorly to “an administrative registration effort, Congress could be motivated to enact legislation tying the Administration’s hands….A heated fight could also poison the atmosphere for any future legislative reform effort.”

In its article, The American Spectator suggested that the memo could possibly be related to another leaked USCIS memo, which FAIR and other organizations reported on in August. (See FAIR Legislative Update, Aug. 2, 2010) The memo does cover similar topics to the previously leaked USCIS memo, such as granting parole in place and waiving the three and ten-year bars, in addition to unapologetically plotting to usurp Congressional authority by granting administrative amnesty to the entire illegal alien population. However, Administration officials have yet to comment on the American Spectator article, or the memo that lies at the heart of it.

Obama to Bring Back Amnesty for Illegal Aliens – SOON

This week Obama made darn sure Hispanics know he is going to bring back the Amnesty for Illegal Aliens bill. Sure, it will have a slick sounding name like “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” but it will include amnesty for those 12+ million illegal aliens or “undocumented democrats” as some are now referring to them.

Referring to the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill, while speaking to a group of Hispanics (the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute) just this week, Obama is reported to have said: "But let me be clear: I will not walk away from this fight. My commitment is getting this done as soon as we can. We can't keep kicking this challenge down the road."

Of course, Obama blamed the republicans for the delay in amnesty for illegal aliens. In our opinion, the GOP should be proud of that accusation and take credit for it. In the case of amnesty for illegal aliens, the GOP ought not just be the “party of NO, but the party of HELL NO!

Mr. Obama reportedly told the Hispanics gathered at the meeting: "But don't forget who is standing with you, and who is standing against you. Don't ever believe that this election coming up doesn't matter. ... Don't forget who your friends are."

We can assure the President WE LEGAL American citizens will not forget which political party is attempting to shove amnesty for illegal aliens down OUR throats!
Time to get the e-mail humming to your Senators again. Phone calls work well, too. Faxes are also important.

Even a telegram to your senator’s office would be helpful. I have asked this before and I will ask it again: Isn’t there something very sad (and very telling) when the people of a country have to “force” their own government to respond to the wishes of their people? Isn’t it telling as to how far we have traveled down the road toward “totalitarian government”? Have we learned anything??? That question will be answered in November.

“Once more, into the breach,” conservatives!!! Basically, Americans STILL want the border closed and sealed FIRST! It is common sense to stop the leak in the breached dam we call the border. Once the border is closed and sealed then taking care of those aliens here illegally can begin and, I hope, mass deportations can begin.

The really sad aspect of this whole calamity with the flood of illegal aliens is that none of this would be necessary – if -- the federal government would just enforce the immigration laws already on the books. But they are not going to do that and they will make every effort they feel they must to stop any sovereign state from protecting itself, and its fellow Americans, by enforcing the law.

We are all aware of how the federal government has brought the hammer down on the people of the sovereign state of Arizona for just making an attempt to enforce US law. All of America learned exactly how Obama and his fellow socialist-liberals feel about state sovereignty and how quick they are to use the mailed fist of a dictatorial government to smash any resistance to their socialist agenda.

Yes, Americans ARE angry with the illegal alien mess and the numerous attempts by our government to offer them amnesty, which would, in time, offer them citizenship. It is the wrong answer to a question that never should have come up. It wouldn’t have – had the federal government been doing its job.

As I wrote in an article some years back: “Those of you who support open borders do not, I repeat, do not try to beat us about the head and shoulders with the old saw that says America is a nation of immigrants. See, we already know that because our ancestors were immigrants, too. Mine came into the country, legally, in 1789 through what was then Charles Town Harbor and were assigned a place in the 96th precinct of the state of South Carolina. Notice - they came into this country LEGALLY! That is all we expect of any who want to immigrate to America. Do it legally and we will welcome you with open arms. Do it illegally and we want you caught and deported forthwith!”

Americans have to ask themselves an important question -- and that is … what do we do with a government that refuses to uphold/enforce the nation’s laws? Allow me to answer that by asking this: Suppose you had a business and an employee consistently refused to follow the rules of your workplace. What would you do to that employee? See? The answer is simple. The ONLY way we are ever going to get relief from this problem is to clean the house in Washington.

I refer often to my very intelligent and insightful friend, Alan Caruba. Some time back, in an article entitled “A Crisis of Governors” Alan said the following: “What, in fact, Americans are witnessing is a failure of government at both the state and federal level. The nation has managed to elect too many people to public office that are so clearly inept, incompetent, and untrustworthy, it poses a threat to the republic.”

There is no arguing with the rock solid logic of that statement. Alan, as usual, is spot on. I have said this before and I will say it again, loud and clear: America’s most dangerous enemy, at the moment, is its own government! Sad to say -- it was through the ignorance of the American electorate that these pitifully inept politicians were elected to office to begin with.

America is a big country. When we act, we act big. When we make mistakes – oh, we really screw-up – and in a BIG way. As most Americans now know, electing a Democratic Party controlled Congress in 2006 was a BIG mistake and electing Obama in 2008 was an even BIGGER mistake. Now America is paying the awful price for allowing emotions to drive the election of the first black President of the United States.

We’d like to think that maybe a third party working hard over decades could turn it around, but frankly, I have come to believe that is a long way down the road. I sometimes think Americans are so woefully ignorant of how a representative republic is supposed to work that I have serious doubts we are capable of doing that which is necessary to save our country.

The Tea Party Movement shows promise in the fight to educate Americans about how their government is supposed to work. To say the candidates they have backed over the primary season have been surprisingly victorious would be an understatement. I feel compelled to tell you that I suspect that if their strength continues to grow they will, of necessity, become the political party in America that shoves an evermore moderate GOP off center stage and into the wings and eventually into the pages of history as another “has been” political party that could not find the will to represent their constituents the way those constituents demanded. They got away with it for a while. But those days have now ended.

Until we can come up with a solution to the problem of an unresponsive government we are stuck standing on the sidelines observing the huge land invasion from our neighbor to the south with the assistance of the Obama Regime and its fellow socialist-liberals in the Congress of the United States.

Another Proposal From Obama to Throw Your Money Down the Drain

After focusing on health care and various regulatory bills for over a year, Democrats are trying to convince voters that they do care about the economy and the high unemployment rate. With the November elections looming (only 55 days away) and Congress set to adjourn on October 8, this is the week for Democrats to push new stimulus proposals. They’re doing this although we already have had the $814 billion giant stimulus package last fall and the recent $26 billion in aid for state and local government workers. The various new proposals would increase spending to well over another $200 billion.

The centerpiece of today’s speech in Cleveland is to announce changes in the tax law. President Obama may never have managed a business, but he is sure making up for that lack of experience since becoming president. He is now making lots of business decisions for hapless firms as his new stimulus bills pick what firms should invest in and what product lines will get tax subsidies.

Obama talks tax cuts, but he wants to raise the marginal income taxes that small business owners pay and then give them back some of that money only if they make business decisions that his administration approves of. Large businesses also will get tax cuts, but only if they do what the Obama administration wants them to do.

Economists advise that the best tax systems have low, stable tax rates that let businesses make decisions on how to operate. President Obama violates all these rules, with high marginal rates, temporary tax changes, and very complicated deductions that micromanage how companies operate. Whether a company is even eligible for the deductions depends on how large the company is.

In Cleveland, today Obama will announce that he will fight to make sure that tax rates go up for those making over $200,000, many of them owning small businesses. But his “Small Business Jobs Act,” which will give small businesses $12 billion in loans and “targeted” tax advantages, offers to somewhat offset these higher tax rates.

In addition, the bill creates a “Small Business Lending Fund” that lets the Obama administration make $30 billion in investments in “community banks.” You won’t be surprised to learn that the Obama administration has complete discretion over who gets this money.

The president’s speech will also put forward $130 billion for expanded research and development tax credits and a 100 percent temporary business tax deduction for capital investments made before the end of 2011. On Monday, the president proposed another $50 billion in spending on “roads, rails and runways.”

The problems with the “Small Business Jobs Act” are revealed in the details: both the loans and the tax cuts micromanage how companies should be run. Take the “bonus depreciation,” provision which provides 50 percent first-year depreciation. Among the lucky assets that are eligible: “Single purpose agricultural (livestock) or horticultural structures,” “Storage facilities (except buildings and their structural components) used in connection with distributing petroleum or any primary product of petroleum.” “sewage disposal services,” and “off-the-self computer software.”

The Obama administration officials and Democratic congressional leaders somehow figured out that an agricultural building that serves just one purpose deserves a deduction. But if it does two or more things, it should not be subsidized.

So, a farmer who would have built one building will now build two buildings so that they can get a huge depreciation on both. Why should larger farms, where it may make more sense to have a building that does one function, be the ones who benefit? Of course, this is all nonsensical. And so is the quick write-off for certain types of computer software but not others. And why does “sewage disposal services” deserve such special treatment?

The loans being proposed are no different. The Obama administration and Democrats are picking what type of firms will get loans and what they can get loans for. “Brick and mortar” operations get a loan “to acquire major fixed assets for expansion or modernization.” Why are those particular operations singled out in the CDC/504 loan program? Why can’t those loans be used to for marketing or product development? And, similarly, if you export certain products, you can get a special loan. It all sounds like pork-projects directed to certain lobbying industries.

Of course, a simple way of getting more loans to firms is for banks to be allowed to make more profits on the loans they make. They could do that by lowering tax rates. But “profits” is a dirty word to Obama and Democrats. And another way is for the government to run less of a deficit. If the government borrows less, there will be more for private firms. Besides, to encourage businesses to invest and for households to have more funds to invest, lower taxes are crucial. This all means less wasteful government spending.

These bills are filled with pork. Does anyone believe that the Obama administration won’t let politics enter into the decisions about which “community banks” will receive the $30 billion in the Small Business Lending Fund?

Alas, the chaos created by politicians rewiring the economy will stay with us. When the gravy train runs out and politically favored companies have to fend for themselves, many of the companies that are growing now will have to retrench. All this is just throwing American’s money down the drain.

Obama Gov. establishing Islam as official USA state religion

In contradiction to the US Constitution’s First Amendment referencing the prohibition of the US government’s establishment of a State religion, the Obama has decided to institute Islam’s “religion” Muslimism as the US’ first state-sponsored religion. As Islam is first and foremost a governmental/political system — with the “faithful” following its feudal tenets with Muslim worship of Allah — I suspect that the final overthrow of the US government’s Republic will be very soon. And, STILL no one is stopping the tyrant.

Why do I make these claims? Let’s take a look at what the dictator is now affecting. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is the radical cleric who is spearheading the establishment of the 9/11 Islamic Victory Mosque (and suspected terrorist training center) at ground zero. Rauf is also the Imam sponsored by the Obama government’s State Department (paid for by the US taxpayer) to engage in a fundraising tour of Muslim countries for the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. Suffice it to say, this is illegal under the United States Constitution, as the tyrant is now effectively sponsoring Islam as the official “religion” if not governmental system of the soon-to-be-if-we-don’t-stop-him former United States of America.

No US President has sponsored a state-run religion. But, Islamist Usurper-and-Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama has now done so. Interestingly, since the Obama seizure of the White House, Muslims are allowed to pray when and where they will, while Christians are denied prayer or even the mention of Jesus more and more. This is what Islam does. It replaces and dominates, conquers and crushes every other religion and government system. And it now has a friend and fellow Muslim in the White House. Obama celebrates the Islamic holiday of Ramadan while shunning the Christian National Day of Prayer. At The Obama’s speeches from the White House, there are now fewer and fewer times that the United States flag is present. Note: Other than itself, Islam recognizes no form of government or national sovereignty. Islamic Shari’a law is already being established on the State, if not federal, court level and new Obama SCOTUS Associate Justice Elena Kagan supports it.

Aiding and abetting the Obama & Co criminal enterprise, the mainstream press (aka the ObamaMedia) largely refuses to report on any of these treasonous (that’s High Treason) actions. And it appears that the now being-replaced-by-only-Obama & Co Congressional members don’t care that they’re been pushed aside, as long as they can continue to steal from We-the-People and enrich themselves. After OUR country has been destroyed and Americans are in the chains of slavery (either figurative or literal), We-the-People will have no more power over our own lives. And Dhimmitude (the Islamic system of subjugating, controlling and extraordinarily taxing non-Muslim populations) will have been firmly established. Historically, Islam was heavily involved with the African slave-trade and still practices it, today, in both Sudan and Mauritania. Like Marxism, Islam is a patently feudal system. The rulers (Imams in Islam) are at the top and the serfs (the people) are at the bottom. There is little-to-nothing in-between; hence Obama’s obsession with the destruction of the US middle class.

Again, either We-the-People wake up fully to what is happening to our country and way of life and ends the tyranny that is already upon us, or prepares ourselves for death or imprisonment. This is the truth and reality that the leftist media still refuse to report. And until they are directly and adversely affected, they won’t. It’s our choice. Do we fight or submit? That’s all that we have remaining, folks — that choice and prayer. Oh and by the way, the shout of “Allah Akbar” does not mean “God is great.” Rather, it means “Our God is greater [than yours].” Still think they worship the same God as do Jews and Christians? Better think again.

We Won’t Let Terrorism Stop Us From Appeasing the Terrorists

      Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived in Washington D.C. over the bodies of four of his citizens and one unborn child, murdered by Islamic terrorists. The media had spent a busy two days worrying that the murders might in some way interrupt the latest phase of the tragic farce euphemistically referred to as, “The Peace Process”. Luckily for the terrorists, who are the sole and only beneficiaries of these and all other negotiations, killing Israelis did not prevent the Israelis from showing up at the negotiating table anyway.

The media however doesn’t think much of it, with multiple stories arguing that Netanyahu really doesn’t want peace.

      Time Magazine took it further with a cover story arguing that Israel Doesn’t Want Peace. Which is an inevitable assumption given that over the last two decades, Israel has turned over territory, weapons, houses, factories and cold hard cash to the terrorists. In exchange the terrorists have occasionally agreed to show up at the negotiating table, denounce Israel and demand more– in between calling for a Jihad. Clearly Israel doesn’t want peace.

      Of course when it comes to walking across the bodies of his own dead citizens in order to shake the hand of a terrorist and a murderer, Netanyahu is a piker. Past Prime Ministers have shown up to negotiate after bus bombings with two digit casualties. They have sat across from Arafat, even as that greasy thug’s henchmen were busy firing their AK-47′s into the air in Ramallah to celebrate the last batch of arms and legs strewn across a shopping district by another martyr for Allah, Al Quds and Palestine. Perhaps when the terrorists manage to do more than kill four people, an unborn baby, wound a Rabbi, his wife and 12 year old girl– and the Prime Minister of Israel still shows up ready to give away the store to the terrorists, then the US government and the media will be convinced that Israel is absolutely serious about peace.

      Not that there’s anything to actually negotiate. Abbas is an unelected dictator being propped up by the Obama Administration, and doesn’t represent anyone. Also Abbas has announced that he will make no concessions to Israel whatsoever. He also announced that he absolutely refuses to recognize Israel. Naturally you won’t find mention of this in the media. Certainly not in Time Magazine. There won’t be any covers reading, “Why the Terrorists Don’t Want Peace”, just as you won’t see any Time covers reading, “Why is Islam Bigoted?” The terrorists always get a pass. Their victims always get the shaft.

      According to the media the biggest problem is Israeli towns (aka settlements) in areas that the terrorists want for themselves. One of those towns happens to be Jerusalem. If you believe the media, the obstacle to peace is not the murder of Jews by the terrorists, or that the leader of one of the terrorist factions has already announced that he is not willing to actually concede anything at the negotiations. No, the real problem is that there are Jews living in areas where they used to live before the armies of five Arab countries invaded their land, and ethnically cleansed the Jews from those areas.

      In order to show good faith, Netanyahu agreed to freeze construction in those areas. What that means is Jewish residents can’t build an extension to their house and farmers can’t add a barn or a garage out back. People who have paid for a mortgage and began building a house for their kids have had to stop and wait. Because according to the terrorists, Obama and the media– their home is an obstacle to peace. After the latest terrorist attack, some of the residents have decided to take matters into their own hands and begin construction work on their own. The media has run sensational stories about this “illegal construction”, as if cement mixers and power drills, are more evil than drive by shootings and beating a man to death.

      In Jerusalem, two Arabs beat Lance Wolf, a 60 year old American from Seattle, to death. Near Hebron, Islamic terrorists murdered Yitzchak and Talia Imas, along with Avishai Shindler and Kokhava Even-Chaim. Rabbi Moshe Moreno was driving with his wife when terrorists opened fire with an assault rifle from a passing car. Their car overturned and the terrorists approached to finish them off, just as had been done to the Imas family. But the terrorists’ assault rifle jammed, Rabbi Moreno got his wife out of the car and took shelter behind a boulder. The media hasn’t even bothered to cover their near death escape. And in Washington D.C. everyone nods and gets down to the serious business of deciding how much the terrorists need to be appeased this time.

      Obama described the killings as “senseless slaughter”. Given his loose attention to the words coming out of his mouth, it’s hard to say whether this was another malapropism or cynical pretense. Because everyone knows exactly what the “sense” behind the slaughter is. You can see it on Palestinian Arab TV, read it in the speeches of their leaders and the charters of their organizations. You can find it in the Koran and Abbas’ own veneration of terrorists as “martyrs”. The sense is simple enough. Kill the Jews. Kill the non-Muslims. Subjugate the rest. That is the sense behind the slaughter. That was always the sense behind the slaughter.

      On the 1st of August, the last month of her life, Talia Imas wrote a blog post in which she quoted the following;  "In the Arabic language and Arab-Muslim mentality the word “peace” doesn’t exist in its European sense. There is peace among Muslims. There is peace when the infidels are subjugated and beg for mercy– then they can be granted peace. And there is Hudna, when the infidel enemy is strong and his destruction is postponed for a time. Hudna, the long-term truce, that is the best we can get– and only if we are strong".

      A month before she and her husband were murdered, Talia Imas understood clearly why it would happen. Negotiating with Muslim terrorists is a sign of weakness. And weakness means the time is ripe for attack.

      In November 2009, the Israeli authorities took away Yitzchak Imas’ weapons permit, because of his participation in the Temple Institute, a peaceful organization that attempts to preserve the Jewish claim to the Temple Mount, the site of two temples, which Muslims hijacked in order to build their Dome of the Rock. Yitzchak led groups to the Temple Mount to remind them that the site is part of the Jewish cultural and religious heritage. An act that upset and enraged the Muslims. To the Israeli authorities that made him an extremist, as anyone who upsets Muslims is considered to be an extremist.

      Yitzchak Imas was disarmed and left unable to defend his pregnant wife and the other passengers in his car. Because by upsetting Muslims he had demonstrated that he was an “extremists” and had to be disarmed. Similarly by upsetting the Muslim world, Israel has demonstrated to the international community of diplomats and appeasers that it is an “extremist state” and must be disarmed as well. The same cowardly Dhimmi psychology that cost Yitzchak Imas and his wife and their unborn child their lives– is driving Israel, and any country targeted by Muslims over the abyss.

      Four days before her murder, Talia Imas recorded her thoughts on watching a documentary on the expulsion of Jews from Gaza, and on seeing the last remains of the Jewish towns and villages there.

      “Except for mosques in which there are Islamic Universities, nothing is left. In place of all the towns, gardens, greenhouses, there is only sand, sand and sand. There is not even a sign of the life that was formerly there. Only at the end, the photographer reported that he had found the gray skeleton of a building, but he could not identify it. He sent me the photos and my breath stopped. It had been the synagogue in Neve Dekalim. (Job). This was the comparison I made. “The LORD has given and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

      These are the words with which Bruriah also comforted her husband, R. Meir on the death of their sons. And the words with which Jews have so often accepted tragedy and loss.

      That same day Yitzchak made plans to lead a group back to the Temple Mount in September. Four days later he and his wife were murdered. When the Muslim terrorists opened fire on his car and returned to finish them off, he could not fire a shot in self-defense. His weapons had been taken away.

      Hillary Clinton described the Imas’ as “Lost”, but they were not lost. They were found. They had come out of the Soviet Union and the dark heart of Communism where religion was forbidden, faith was a crime and Jewishness an offense– and found where they belonged. To the Clintons and Obamas, they are lost. To the left they were a blot on the land. To the media, they are a crime. And in Washington D.C., Obama and Clinton are working to turn over the home of their orphans to the terrorists who murdered their parents.

      The Imas, who defied two totalitarian ideologies, Communism and Islamism, are not lost. They found the faith to defy evil. It is those who side with evil, like Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, who are truly and irrevocably lost. It is the Hadash mob in Israel, the petty actors and writers waving their hateful little signs and vowing a boycott in the name of a socialist solidarity with their Arab Marxist colleagues, now turned Islamist, that are lost. It is the politicians of the free world, in America and Europe, Australia, Israel, Canada and anywhere in the world who bow to evil– who are lost. And if they are allowed to remain in power, those countries that they rule over will be lost too.

       And now the “Lost” once again head off to more talks. Talks with terrorists whose leader has already announced that he make no concessions and that he will not even recognize Israel. And these are the “moderate” terrorists. The ones supported by American money and weapons, and Israeli electricity and tax revenues.

      “We won’t let Terrorism stop us from appeasing the Terrorists”, proclaim our leaders. They may kill as many of us as they like, and we will take their side in every dispute. We will give them land and money. We will let them build a mosque at Ground Zero. We will betray our own, let them divide and conquer us, community by community, state by state and nation by nation. We will denounce anyone who resists as extremists. We will fight with our very last breath for the right to go on surrendering to terrorists. We will go on appeasing them until we are all dead or slaves. Then they will finally know that we were the “good ones”, the tolerant and enlightened people. Good enough. Good as dead.

      The Peace Process is the process of Islam. The process by which Islamic supremacy is achieved through guile. The Arabic word for peace is Salaam or السلام . The Hadiths describe Salaam as one of the six rights of a Muslim. As-Salaam is also the name of Allah, the Muslim deity. Non-Muslims cannot be granted Salaam, unless they Taslim, submit to Muslims and their deity. To ask Muslims for peace, is to offer to submit to them. Is it any wonder if they take you at your word?

      The Peace Process is only a fingernail on the gnarled hand of Islam reaching out for the world. Nations like Israeli, India and Thailand which have large Muslim minorities and share borders with Muslim countries are on the frontier, the firing line. But the invasion force has not stopped there. It is in Europe and Australia. It is in America and Canada. It is here right now. And those who insist that they will not allow terrorism to stop them from appeasing the terrorists, are worse than the terrorists. Because the only thing worse than a murderer, is the man who is paid to stop him, but lets him do his bloody work instead. In the name of peace. In the name of Islam.
