The Debt Ceiling, The Dream Act, And The Downgrade

It has definitely been a wild couple of weeks that continues to prove to me that nothing will ever change in Washington D.C.

We have seen a debt ceiling deal that does nothing to change the course our country is headed on.  The TEA Party has been called terrorists by Vice President Joe Biden, and demonized by some in talk radio and the IMPOTENT Republican establishment.

I don’t know how many times I’ve heard the Republican establishment wimps say, ” We only have one branch of government, how much can we be expected to do?”  Controlling one branch of government is all that is needed to prevent any bad bill from being passed!

THE SOLUTION SHOULD HAVE BEEN: Pass a spending freeze bill and cuts similar to what Sen. Rand Paul suggested ( a spending freeze and 1% cut each year for six years), and spend the rest of the time explaining it to your districts.  If the Senate and POTUS refuse to do anything with the bill, stay in your district and keep explaining it.  That is truly why we have a system of checks and balances.  The sky will not fall as they have led you to believe.

Patriots be happy to know that all your WI Republican Congressman voted for this “phoney reform” including media darling Paul Ryan.  The same Paul Ryan who voted for TARP and the Patriot Act extension.

Coming from the Democrats (aka Socialists & Communists) we expect this type of behavior because they have a globalist agenda to bring down America.  It is time people recognize many in the Republican Party also have a globalist agenda, have sold out, or are just too stupid to see what is going on.

Notice that the only Republican Presidential Candidates who were really speaking out against this bill before it passed was Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, and to some extent, Michele Bachmann.  The rest of the pack remained relatively silent on the bill until AFTER it passed.  Only when their words would no longer have any real impact on the debate / discourse did they actively speak against it.  Why? Because they wanted it the bill to pass.

The only way America can be brought down is if the middle class is broken.  They are in the process of doing this by growing the welfare state, continuing to spend like drunken sailors printing more and more money along the way, continuing to fight wars in the middle east that do not do anything to protect us, and continue to strip us of our rights in the name of “protecting us” while leaving us with open borders.

So what did we have?  Another manufactured crisis with an artificial timetable, a phoney debate with a phoney solution, a chance to demonize true patriots, and  a distraction from other things.  What other things?  How about this:  Dream Act: Obama passes amnesty by a back door ICE directive

We also have the credit rating of the U.S. now downgraded by S&P from AAA to AA+ .  This was probably going to happen anyway if real reform was not enacted and the downgrade was signaled weeks ago by S&P.  The prospective downgrade was also used as a scare tactic to pass the debt limit increase.  I have wondered aloud, “Who really owns these credit rating agencies and are the same people behind the Federal Reserve somehow connected?”  I do not know the answer, but it is definitely an intriguing question.

The downgrade will likely hurt the middle and lower middle class the most.  Mortgage rates will likely rise.  We’ll probably see more inflation and job loss.  Small businesses will not be able to expand and many will have to close altogether.  The retirement savings of many will probably see significant losses as the stock market continues to slide.

Consider finding ways to beat inflation and try to become more self reliant.  As the WI recall elections draw closer and closer, help fight to keep the Socialists from winning back the WI State Senate.  The only solution to this mess is through the State Sovereignty/ Nullification movement.

Hang on…it is going to be a bumpy ride.

Hooray! HR514 – Renewal Of The Patriot Act Provisions Voted Down!

You Did It!

House Unexpectedly Defeats Patriot Act

I am sure that this is not the last we have heard of this.  It is only a temporary victory as they will continue to push forward these provisions.  Prepare to keep the pressure on!  Don’t be fooled when you hear the Neo-Cons tell you the world will fall apart without these provisions.  If they really cared about terrorism, our borders would have been secured a long time ago.

Shocking as it may seem, Wisconsin Congressional Representatives Tammy Baldwin and Gwen Moore voted against the bill.  As much as it hurts me to say this, they at least deserve to be recognized for this vote.  Could it be that they are starting to understand the Constitution?  Could it be that we are finally getting through to them? Well…I wouldn’t hold my breath.  As Sheriff Mack said when he visited with us in Oconomowoc, “Even a broken clock is right twice a day.”

On another interesting note, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann voted for HR514.  The same Michele Bachmann who gave the “TEA Party” response to the State Of The Union Address.  The same Michele Bachmann who is part of the “TEA Party Caucus” and “understands” the TEA Party Movement.

This same Michele Bachmann voted for the Patriot Act the first time.  It would be interesting to hear her explanation on this one.  She can no longer claim she made a mistake in the past and was now “enlightened” by her interactions with the TEA Party.  It seems Michele Bachmann may be just another “player”.
