Democratic Party is unwilling to lose

February 28, 2011
The Entitled Party
By Karin McQuillan

President Obama and the left wing of the Democratic Party think they are entitled to win. From our narcissistic President to screaming union organizers, they are puffed up with self-righteous zeal. They must have health care to save the sick, they must shut down Louisiana oil rigs to save the planet, they must defend government unions to save the middle class.

Of course, each side thinks they are right. Being right is no excuse. You have to abide by the law, you have to abide by elections, you have to respect the courts and constitutional separation of power, or else we no longer live in a democratic country. In our democracy, no one is entitled to win. If you won't lose, you cannot have democracy.

What you have are the Wisconsin Democrat senators who are unwilling to abide by the election results that put them in a minority. What you have is Reid and Pelosi, ramming Obamacare through by breaking rules of procedure, in order to flout the 2010 election results. What you have is the Obama White House, blocking Congress's right to confirm appointees, and openly ignoring federal courts. What you have is the Justice Department announcing it will no longer defend the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act in court, as if Obama gets to decide which laws are constitutional. What you have is a Democratic Party run amok, undercutting our democracy in the service of their own power.   Read More

National ID Card In May

Warning to a Friend of Freedom:

February 28, 2011
By Alan Gottlieb, AmeriPAC

Even though no one on Capitol Hill is talking about it, unless it is stopped, in less than 90 days, you will be REQUIRED by federal law to have, and carry on your person, a “national ID” card in the form of a national drivers’ license. You know, the type of card the Nazi’s and the communists in the Soviet Union made people carry. In 1993 the Republican Congress referred to it as an “internal passport” when the Clinton Administration initially tried to create it—first as a national healthcare card, then as a “jobs card” to keep illegal aliens from stealing jobs from U.S. citizens and finally, in 1996, as a national drivers’ license.

Based on the provisions of The Real ID Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-13, 119 Stat 392), Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security will now require the federalization of State-issued driver’s licenses by May 11, 2011. Every State will be required to issue driver’s licenses that conform to new federal identification compliance “standards.”

Living in America, did you ever think you’d experience the invasive government, Big Brother tactics that we see in movies of Nazi Germany, in which uniformed officers demand: “Where are your papers?”

That is exactly what YOUR government is doing!

I am reminded of George Orwell’s riveting book, “1984.” Is “1984″ now upon us? The new national ID cards, disguised as a uniform drivers’ license, will be biometric. Each card will store personal data about the card holder. What information? Whatever the computer chip will hold—up to a gigabyte of data. And, each card will contain a GPS tracking chip. (Just in case someone steals your card, Big Brother will know, within 3 feet, where that card is at any moment.) George Orwell’s 1984 has finally arrived—and only 27 years late.

Please, CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of the U.S. Congress to tell them to STOP any form of National I.D. cards or National Drivers’ license. Tell Congress that the Real ID Act goes beyond constitutional limits, and that the American people will not be subjected to what amounts to an internal passport. Further, tell Congress that since the creation of a uniform, federal drivers’ license/ID card exceeds the financial limits established by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pubic Law 104-4, 2 USC 1501), this law cannot be implemented because the cost exceeds the limits the federal government can impose on the States. Please help us fight this usurpation of YOUR privacy rights—and CHALLENGE an unlawful demand on the States. A substantial GIFT to AmeriPAC will help us fight what has already been costly war. But OUR PERSONAL FREEDOMS must be preserved.

If this battle is not waged—and won—by May 11, 2011, the American people will be carrying a federal ID card that will double as a State-issued drivers’ license. You will need it to vote. You will need it to enter a federal building. You will need it to buy a plane ticket. And, believe it or not, you will need it if you are stopped while jogging in the park or sitting on your front porch. Oh, yes…and because it will be your drivers’ license as well, you will need it to drive your car.

Conservative Crucial Crossroads

The Top 6 Issues That Can Unite the Conservative Movement

February 28, 2011
By Chris Queen

I think the Right is at a crucial crossroads. If we have too many more moments like these, conservatives will be known for what we can’t agree on more than what we can. I believe it’s time for the Right to rally around certain issues and unite. There’s too much that true conservatives can unite around, and that’s what this list is about.

I’d like to make one note here: in this post I’m avoiding certain social issues for one particular reason. While there are plenty of conservatives who are passionate about abortion, traditional marriage, and several other issues, we often have to walk on eggshells when dealing with such issues. My intention is for this post to be a rallying cry, rather than a flashpoint for further debate, so I’m staying clear of some of these potentially more contentious issues. With that said, here we go.  Read More

The Death Of The Dollar

Will The Death Of The Dollar Lead To The Birth Of A New World Economic Order?

There is no getting around it. The U.S. dollar is dying. U.S. government debt continues to grow at a very frightening pace and the Federal Reserve is now buying up most of the new debt that is being issued. At this point there is simply not enough money in the rest of the world to continue to feed the U.S. government's endless thirst for more debt so the Federal Reserve has had to directly intervene in order to keep the Ponzi scheme going. Other nations are rapidly losing faith in the U.S. dollar as they realize that there is simply no way that the U.S. government will be able to service this soaring debt for much longer. Even now we are watching the U.S. dollar rapidly fall against a vast array of hard assets. Virtually all major agricultural commodities have exploded in price over the past year, the price of gold is over $1400 an ounce again and last week U.S. crude oil prices topped $100 a barrel for the first time since 2008. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve continues to print dollars as if there is no tomorrow and the U.S. government continues to spend dollars as if the party is never going to end. Yes, we are most definitely witnessing the death of the dollar.  Read More
