I received this in an email this morning. Most of it I did not pen myself, however I did add a few items to these already well documented facts.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE BUT IT CONTAINS SOME INTERESTING INFORMATION ON THE BATTLE BETWEEN THE PARTIES.

Three Cheers for Obama

BEFORE YOU THINK I’VE FLIPPED MY LID, READ THE ENTIRE COLUMN!

Three Cheers for Obama!

That is right – I will say it. . . . . THANK GOD FOR OBAMA!

He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine – Driving a stake thru the Heart of Hillary’s Presidential aspirations–something no Republican was ever able to do. Remember when a Hillary Presidency scared the daylights out of you!

He killed off the Kennedy Dynasty – No more Kennedys trolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.  American women and freedom are safer tonight!

He is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!

    Dennis Moore had never lost a race – quit

    Evan Bayh had never lost a race – quit

    Byron Dorgan – had never lost a race – quit

    Harry Reid – bid for re-election doesn’t look good

These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama has destroyed!  By the end of 2010 dozens more will be! In December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise. In the last two election cycles they had picked up 14 senate seats and 52 house seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party. In one year Obama put a stop to all of this and will probably give the house, if not the senate back to the Republicans.

He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Every generation seems to need to relearn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. He is bringing home the lesson very well!

    Liberals tax, borrow and spend – check

    Liberals won’t bring themselves to protect America – check

    Liberals want to take over the economy – check

    Liberals think they know what is best for everyone – check

    Liberals aren’t happy till they are running YOUR life – check

He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan.

In one year he rejuvenated the Conservative Movement and brought out to the streets millions of Freedom Loving Americans. Name me one other time in your life that you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America!

In all honesty one year ago I was more afraid than I had ever been in my life.  Not of the economy, but of the direction our country was going. I thought Americans had forgotten what this country was all about. My neighbors, friends, strangers proved to me that my lack of confidence of the greatness and wisdom of the American people was flat out wrong. When the American People wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter reader can fool them! Obama woke up these Great Americans

Again I want say Thank you Obama!

So, Lets Recap “2009”………what a year!  WOW!!!

1. The American people inaugurate a half-Arab president with a total of 142 days experience as a US Senator from the most politically corrupt state (city) in America whose governors have been ousted from office. His first televised / radio address was to the Arabs in the Middle East, Not to the American People. The President’s first official act is to order the closing of Gitmo and make sure terrorist’s civil rights are not violated.  (Honest mistake?)

2. The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm a black Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists.  (An honest mistake?)

3. The CIA Boss appointee, Leon Panetta, has absolutely no experience, has a daughter Linda, we find out, who is a true radical anti-American activist and a supporter of all the Anti-American regimes in the western hemisphere. (There were socio-economic factors involved!)

4. We got the second most corrupt American woman (Pelosi is #1) as Secretary of State; bought and paid for. (You can put lipstick on a pig, but it still stinks!)

5. We got a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary who did not properly file his own taxes for 12 years.  (He misspoke!)

6. A Commerce Secretary nominee who withdrew due to corruption charges.  (Another honest mistake???)

7. A Tax cheat nominee for Chief Performance Officer who withdrew under charges.  (Hmmm… Another screw-up?)

8. A Labor Secretary nominee who withdrew under charges of unethical conduct.  (Ok, maybe this person was just plain stupid.)

9. A Secretary HHS nominee (Daschle) who withdrew under charges of cheating on his taxes.  (I’m running out of excuses for these idiots!!)

10. Multiple appointments of former lobbyists after an absolute campaign statement that no lobbyists would be appointed. (Dear God, I am getting a headache!)

All this occurred just during the first three weeks. . . But who’s counting?

America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges; Barry, Nancy and Harry and they are still trying to define stimulus…”it’s spending!!!”

The congress passes the $800,000,000,000 (that’s $800 billion) pork-loaded spending bill where the government gives you a smidgen of your tax dollars ($13 per week), making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated], that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV!

Only with the Liberals…

Pray for our country.

Here’s the good news though – Obama took Air Force One to Denver to sign the stimulus package, wasting as much as 10,000 gallons of fuel OR 24 JOBS FOR ONE YEAR.

Don’t you just love hypocrites?

Obama went to the International Olympic Committee to have them choose Chicago for a host city, he failed.

Obama went to Copenhagen to lecture them on global warming, he failed.

Obama went to New Jersey to promote the Democratic candidate for governor, he failed,

Obama went to Virginia to promote the Democratic candidate for governor, he failed.

Obama went to Massachusetts to promote the Democratic candidate for senator, he failed.

Speaking of praying, Obama has now been president for over a full year and yet he & his wife (first lady) Michelle, the Christian family they claim to be, have not attended church since the inauguration. (there might have been one time he went to church)

Obama is the 1st president in history who did not attend any Christmas religious observance.

He must miss Reverend Wright!

And finally, he is the 1st president to remain on vacation after a terrorist attack.

In these times ‘I’ll keep my God, my freedom, my gun and my money.

Anyone that supports this insanity can keep “THE CHANGE”.

CF  McGratty, Return “In God We Trust” to America, and keep America, American

Don’t let hubristic intellectuals CHANGE our rights and freedom. Be involved, speak out, make noise. If YOU DON’T, then blame yourself and the silent majority for keeping quiet. Those with no rights make the most noise! Think about it!

Obama Violates the Constitution AGAIN with planned action

 

By BEN FELLER, Associated Press Writer Ben Feller 

WASHINGTON – Fed up with waiting, President Barack Obama announced Saturday he would bypass a vacationing Senate and name 15 people to key administration jobs, wielding for the first time the blunt political tool known as the ‘recess appointment’. 

The move immediately deepened the divide between the Democratic president and Republicans in the Senate following a long, bruising fight over health care. Obama revealed his decision by blistering Republicans, accusing them of holding up nominees for months solely to try to score a political advantage on him.

Read more of the story

First off; Let us examine what a “Recess Appointment” is (from Wikipedia):

A recess appointment occurs when the President of the United States fills a vacant federal position, of a sufficiently senior level that the nomination must be confirmed by the Senate, while the Senate is in recess. To be confirmed, the appointment must be approved by the Senate by the end of the next session of Congress (which in current practice means by roughly the end of the next calendar year), or the position becomes vacant again. Recess appointments are authorized by Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution: “The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.”

So, ole “Slimy Barry” (we’ve already had a ‘Slick Willie’) is going to use this trick to get his way. The Constitution says in Article II, Section 2 that the purpose of this measure is to fulfill a Vacancy that happens DURING a recess. These positions were not vacated during a recess, they have been vacant because they require Senate approval. And even with a Supermajority in the Senate (until Scott Brown took office) he couldn’t get his Radical / Communist / Socialist / Terrorist choices passed.

Now he’s telling the American people that it is “Partisan Politics” standing in the way of him filling these key positions. “I simply cannot allow partisan politics to stand in the way of the basic functioning of government,” Obama said in a statement.

This Patriot says “Go Ahead Barack”, and then on January 4, 2011, with a very small number of Democrats in the House of Representatives, they can bring charges of Impeachment against him for violating the U.S. Constitution.

 2nd Update: 23-March-2010 Obama not signing the Executive order.

http://whitehouse.blogs.foxnews.com/2010/03/23/on-health-care-day-obama-skips-signing-executive-order-on-abortion-stupak-on-defense-compares-order-to-emancipation-proclimation/

Updated: 23-March-2010

Here’s a link to Foxnews concerning the lies generated by the CBC. This patriot also saw a story on Monday March 22, 2010, on “Entertainment Tonight” that was repeating the lies by Barney Frank & the CBC. I tried to get the reporters name but it ended without stating who they were. If anyone knows the ET Reporter, please let me know. I will confront them.

  

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/03/22/tea-party-protesters-dispute-reports-slurs-spitting-dem-lawmakers/

What MBB (Moonbat Bashing Blog) would be complete without an appearance from Representative Barney Frank.

Barney Frank repeats the LIES about the ’Slurs’ against the Gays & Blacks. A heckler interrupts Barney and, since Barney’s such a fine upstanding gentleman, tells the heckler ‘F*ck you!’! What makes this even funnier is that only 45 seconds earlier, Barney  decries the bigotry of the protesters  and when Greta questions him about why the Finance Committee (he’s the Chairman, remember) didn’t include some 200 – 300 Billion $$$   in the Text that they sent to the CBO…he stammers and says oh we’re gonna pay for that from somewhere else!

 Silence’s Comments: 1st off, I doubt this executive order will ever get signed. Obama said he would, but since he lies about everything else, why should I take him at his word now. But, if he does sign it, you’ll notice the bold sections I’ve pointed out.   Comments such as “generally accepted accounting principles”   Hummm….. Generally accepted by who? Generally accepted by let’s say Bernie Madoff???? And the other bold sections concerning HHS & Tim Geithner directing and implementing the Model within 180 days.  “In developing these model guidelines, the Director of OMB and the Secretary of HHS shall consult with executive agencies and offices that have relevant expertise in accounting principles, including, but not limited to, the Department of the Treasury, and with the Government Accountability Office. “  That’s like putting the FOX in charge of the HEN HOUSE!

Obama Executive Order on Abortion Funding. 

The White House just released this statement: 

STATEMENT FROM COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR DAN PFEIFFER

 Today, the President announced that he will be issuing an executive order after the passage of the health insurance reform law that will reaffirm its consistency with longstanding restrictions on the use of federal funds for abortion.

 While the legislation as written maintains current law, the executive order provides additional safeguards to ensure that the status quo is upheld and enforced, and that the health care legislation’s restrictions against the public funding of abortions cannot be circumvented.

 The President has said from the start that this health insurance reform should not be the forum to upset longstanding precedent. The health care legislation and this executive order are consistent with this principle.

The President is grateful for the tireless efforts of leaders on both sides of this issue to craft a consensus approach that allows the bill to move forward.

A text of the pending executive order follows:

EXECUTIVE ORDER

ENSURING ENFORCEMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ABORTION RESTRICTIONS IN THE PATIENT PROTECTION AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

 By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (approved March ¬¬__, 2010), I hereby order as follows:

Section 1. Policy.

Following the recent passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“the Act”), it is necessary to establish an adequate enforcement mechanism to ensure that Federal funds are not used for abortion services (except in cases of rape or incest, or when the life of the woman would be endangered), consistent with a longstanding Federal statutory restriction that is commonly known as the Hyde Amendment. The purpose of this Executive Order is to establish a comprehensive, government-wide set of policies and procedures to achieve this goal and to make certain that all relevant actors—Federal officials, state officials (including insurance regulators) and health care providers—are aware of their responsibilities, new and old.

 The Act maintains current Hyde Amendment restrictions governing abortion policy and extends those restrictions to the newly-created health insurance exchanges. Under the Act, longstanding Federal laws to protect conscience (such as the Church Amendment, 42 U.S.C. §300a-7, and the Weldon Amendment, Pub. L. No. 111-8, §508(d)(1) (2009)) remain intact and new protections prohibit discrimination against health care facilities and health care providers because of an unwillingness to provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions.

 Numerous executive agencies have a role in ensuring that these restrictions are enforced, including the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

Section 2. Strict Compliance with Prohibitions on Abortion Funding in Health Insurance Exchanges. The Act specifically prohibits the use of tax credits and cost-sharing reduction payments to pay for abortion services (except in cases of rape or incest, or when the life of the woman would be endangered) in the health insurance exchanges that will be operational in 2014. The Act also imposes strict payment and accounting requirements to ensure that Federal funds are not used for abortion services in exchange plans (except in cases of rape or incest, or when the life of the woman would be endangered) and requires state health insurance commissioners to ensure that exchange plan funds are segregated by insurance companies in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, OMB funds management circulars, and accounting guidance provided by the Government Accountability Office.

I hereby direct the Director of OMB and the Secretary of HHS to develop, within 180 days of the date of this Executive Order, a model set of segregation guidelines for state health insurance commissioners to use when determining whether exchange plans are complying with the Act’s segregation requirements, established in Section 1303 of the Act, for enrollees receiving Federal financial assistance. The guidelines shall also offer technical information that states should follow to conduct independent regular audits of insurance companies that participate in the health insurance exchanges. In developing these model guidelines, the Director of OMB and the Secretary of HHS shall consult with executive agencies and offices that have relevant expertise in accounting principles, including, but not limited to, the Department of the Treasury, and with the Government Accountability Office. Upon completion of those model guidelines, the Secretary of HHS should promptly initiate a rulemaking to issue regulations, which will have the force of law, to interpret the Act’s segregation requirements, and shall provide guidance to state health insurance commissioners on how to comply with the model guidelines.

Section 3. Community Health Center Program.

 The Act establishes a new Community Health Center (CHC) Fund within HHS, which provides additional Federal funds for the community health center program. Existing law prohibits these centers from using federal funds to provide abortion services (except in cases of rape or incest, or when the life of the woman would be endangered), as a result of both the Hyde Amendment and longstanding regulations containing the Hyde language. Under the Act, the Hyde language shall apply to the authorization and appropriations of funds for Community Health Centers under section 10503 and all other relevant provisions. I hereby direct the Secretary of HHS to ensure that program administrators and recipients of Federal funds are aware of and comply with the limitations on abortion services imposed on CHCs by existing law. Such actions should include, but are not limited to, updating Grant Policy Statements that accompany CHC grants and issuing new interpretive rules.

Section 4. General Provisions.

(a) Nothing in this Executive Order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect: (i) authority granted by law or presidential directive to an agency, or the head thereof; or (ii) functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This Executive Order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This Executive Order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity against the United States, its departments, agencies, entities, officers, employees or agents, or any other person.

 THE WHITE HOUSE
