Obama Administration Caught Arming Mexican Illegal Alien Rebels

For National Release

One of America's largest border enforcement advocacy organizations is calling on supporters to demand that Congress use investigations, prosecutions, impeachments, military tribunals, and treason charges if necessary to bring justice to those who betrayed American citizens by arming drug and illegal alien importing invaders.

New information is coming to light that one of America's top law enforcement agencies under the control of the US Presidency was helping to provide military grade guns to the violent Mexican crime cartels, who are importing the vast majority of America's illegal aliens, cocaine, and methamphetamine. Dubbed operations 'Gun Runner' and 'Fast and Furious,' elite weapons such as AK-47 Assault rifles and Barret .50 caliber sniper rifles were allowed to pass freely into Mexico, while the Obama administration called for a crack down on American gun sales.

"This betrayal at the highest levels of our government is consistent with the other betrayals we have documented across the board," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "The Executive Branch of the federal government has been caught lying about border security, leaving our borders wide open during a time of war, failing to protect states from invasion as required by the US Constitution, and now providing military grade arms to the invaders. We are calling on the Congress today to use all possible remedies including investigations, prosecutions, impeachments, and possible charges of treason."

Immediate investigations, prosecutions, and possible treason charges and military tribunals are needed because the evidence suggests that the American government has been corrupted and compromised on a grand scale regarding the importation of drugs and illegals into America. Military tribunals may be needed since those responsible for this betrayal have been arming paramilitary groups with military grade weapons to invade America during a time of war.

Agents are telling the media that this operation was approved by the Department of Justice under Eric Holder. President Obama is denying that he knew anything about the American government sanctioned shipments of large amounts of arms to the drug cartel insurgents.

The elite organized crime syndicates receiving the American sold weapons, compliments of the American ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms agency), are responsible for murdering tens of thousands of Mexican citizens in the last few years.

Thousands of innocent American citizens are being killed by these gangs and their illegal alien cargo each year!

Tens of thousands of Americans, predominantly young adults and children, are becoming addicted to and succumbing to the chemical weapons of mass destruction deployed by these groups in the form of cocaine and methamphetamine.

Authorities now believe that Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with guns acquired through operations 'Gun Runner' and 'Fast and Furious.' Obama's administration has order our Border Patrol agents to fire bean bag rounds while arming the smugglers with fifty caliber rifles.

The ATF is making some kind of strange unbelievable claim that the guns were allowed into Mexico to "gather intelligence" on drug cartels.

"The ATF and the Department of Justice under Obama have just been caught arming a sizable paramilitary force overseeing the invasion of the United States," said William Gheen. "There's no telling how many Americans and Mexicans have been killed with these weapons and how many will die in the future if Congress does not act decisively to restore constitutional governance in America immediately."

The Bush administration, and now the Obama administration, have done all in their power to support illegal immigrants over the wishes and interests of American citizens for the last ten years, which has led to massive job and community instability and an unprecedented shift in US Census counts.

ALIPAC's 40,000 national supporters are being asked to call Congress and talk radio shows to demand immediate action. News updates about this breaking scandal will be archived and displayed at

A Black Man, The Progressive’s Perfect Trojan Horse

As millions of my fellow Americans, I am outraged, devastated and extremely angry by the democrat’s unbelievable arrogance and disdain for We The People. Despite our screaming “no” from the rooftops, they forced Obamacare down our throats. Please forgive me for using the following crude saying, but it is very appropriate to describe what has happened. “Don’t urinate on me and tell me it’s raining.” Democrats say their mission is to give all Americans health care. The democrats are lying. Signing Obamacare into law against our will and the Constitution is tyranny and step one of their hideous goal of having as many Americans as possible dependent on government, thus controlling our lives and fulfilling Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America.

NC Republicans Back Down on Voter Photo ID

Please call your representatives in the NC General Assembly and tell them what you think! I am mad! You can find your representative info here:

Republicans Back Down on Voter Photo ID

Voter ID bill gets changed by NC House Republicans--House Republicans on Wednesday rolled out a compromise of a bill requiring voter identification before casting a ballot in North Carolina that now wouldn't always require a photo ID. But the proposal may end up irritating even more legislators and interest groups.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011


As the CR talks between the House Republicans and the administration and Senate Democrats near their deadline, the House negotiators should put America’s foreign aid budget on the table.

With the Democrats reportedly willing to cut about half of the $61 billion the GOP has sought, much of the balance could come from a moratorium in paying out the $50 billion of foreign economic and military aid the United States dispenses every year. Rather than engage in a numerical debate, the Republicans should make the fight about whether to cut the foreign aid budget. Who will defend foreign aid when we have a $1.6 trillion deficit?

Another hidden secret in Obamacare "RFID Chip Implants"

And now we come to it. On Sunday March 21, 2010 the Senate Healthcare bill HR3200 was passed and signed into law the following Tuesday. Like I said before, there are a legion of horrible and just plain evil aspects to this bill and I’m sure you’ve heard a lot them by now. I don’t want to discount them but what cannot be missed here is this new law now opens a prophetic door on a magnitude not seen since the reformation of Israel.

This new law requires an RFID chip implanted in all of us. This chip will not only contain your personal information with tracking capability but it will also be linked to your bank account. And get this, Page 1004 of the new law (dictating the timing of this chip), reads, and I quote: "Not later than 36 months after the date of the enactment". It is now the law of the land that by March 23rd 2013 we will all be required to have an RFID chip underneath our skin and this chip will be link to our bank accounts as well as have our personal records and tracking capability built into it.

In just a minute I’m going to show you the black and white of the law itself and you can see it with your own eyes and wonder why an event of this magnitude which is nothing less than seismic in nature is met with little more than silence in the Christian community.

Is it now starting to dawn on you just where exactly we are in prophecy? I’ll ask that question again in a minute and follow up on it, but now I want to show you the law itself. I’ve downloaded a PDF copy of HR3200 from the government's website so what I’m about to show you is from the bill itself its nothing that I’ve written. You can access it all and see it all for yourself straight from the source itself.

H.R. 3200 section 2521, Pg. 1001, paragraph 1.

The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that— ‘‘is or has been used in or on a patient; ‘‘and is— ‘‘a class III device; or ‘‘a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.”

What exactly is a class II device that is implantable? As you saw earlier, it is the device approved by the FDA in 2004.

Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act:

A class II implantable device is an "implantable radio frequency transponder system for patient identification and health information." The purpose of a class II device is to collect data in medical patients such as "claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the Secretary."

Going back to what we just looked at, the creation of the national medical device registry in section 2521, page 1002 line 5: “In developing the registry, the secretary shall…” And the law continues on with a laundry list of items that the secretary must do in the process of creating this registry. In this laundry list of items to do, Line 17, subparagraph B: "validating methods for analyzing patient safety and outcomes data from multiple sources and for linking such data with the information included in the registry as described in subparagraph (A)."

Going back to subparagraph A, it says: “including in the registry, in a manner consistent with subsection (f), appropriate information to identify each device described in paragraph (1) by type, model, and serial number or other unique identifier;.... ” Don’t be confused by the intentional obfuscation and skillful wording, This law first creates the national device registry and then immediately list all the task the secretary of health and human services will have do in the process of creating this registry.

The very first two items in the list mandates that the secretary first gives a unique identification to each of the items listed in paragraph 1 which is: ‘‘a class III device; or ‘‘a class II device that is implantable.”

Then, the very next thing the secretary is to do is to create the process by which “patient safety and outcomes data from multiple sources”, which is electronic medical records, that are linked to these newly and uniquely identified items from paragraph 1 which are the class III and class II implantable devices. Class III devises are items such as breast implants, pacemakers, heart valves, etc. A Class II device that is implantable is, as you seen from the FDA, an implantable radio frequency transponder, RFID chip. From breast implants, to pacemakers, to RFID chips which one is the only possible one that can used for the stated purpose in section B which is, “for linking such data with the information included in the registry”? As we know from subsection A, the information in the registry is the name of a device. In plain languate, we are in a clear way being told that our electronic medical records are going to be linked to a class II implantable device!

Continuing a few lines down in this same section, section B subsection ii on still on page 1002, the “patient safety and outcomes data from multiple sources”, that is to be linked is clearly spelled out as electronic medical records. It reads: “link data obtained under clause (i) with information in the registry.”

Information in the registry is, as we know from subparagraph A, the name of the device. So what is the data obtained under clause (i)? Clause (i) reads: “obtain access to disparate sources of patient safety and outcomes data, including Federal health-related electronic data”. Again, from breast implants, to pacemakers, to RFID chips which one is the only possible one that can used for the stated purpose in section B? That stated purpose is “for linking such data” and the such data is electronic medical records. What we already have already seen in just the creation of this registry, is the device that will serve as the link, which is an RFID microchip that is categorized as a Class II implantable device, as well as what it will be the link for which is your electronic medical records.

In case the law wasn’t clear enough on that point, still in the laundry list of things to do a few more lines down on page 1005, it reads: “The Secretary to protect the public health; shall establish procedures to permit linkage of information submitted pursuant to subparagraph (A, remember subparagraph A is the class 2 implantable device reference) with patient safety and outcomes data obtained under paragraph (3, which is electronic medical records); and to permit analyses of linked data;”

Continuing on to page 1007, in the STANDARDS, IMPLEMENTATION CRITERIA, AND CERTIFICATION CRITERIA section, the secretary of health and human services is given full power to intact all mandates from the laundry list of to-do items in the creation process of the registry as well as dictate how the devises listed in the National Medical Device Registry are to be used and implemented.

"The Secretary of the Health Human Services, acting through the head of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, shall adopt standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria for the electronic exchange and use in certified electronic health records of a unique device identifier for each device described in paragraph 1 (National Medical Device Registry), if such an identifier is required by section 519(f) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360i(f)) for the device."

On Page 503, section E Lines 13-17, it reads: "encourage, as appropriate, the development and use of clinical registries and the development of clinical effectiveness research data networks from electronic health records, post marketing drug and medical device surveillance efforts". Let me say that again, medical device surveillance efforts!

Now let us look at section 163 of HR3200, which gives the government a direct electronic access to your bank account which will work in conjunction with an implanted chip.

Page 58 Lines 5 through 15 reads: (D) enable the real-time (or near real time) determination of an individual’s financial responsibility at the point of service and, to the extent possible, prior to service, including whether the individual is eligible for a specific service with a specific physician at a specific facility, which may include utilization of a machine-readable health plan beneficiary identity detection card; (E) enable, where feasible, near real-time adjudication of claims

What does this mean? It means that the government will give everybody a health ID card that contains a machine readable device (magnetic strip or RFID chip) similar to a credit card. Embedded in this chip or strip is your Health Identification Number. When you visit a medical provider, the medical claims will be processed while you are still in the office. The medical providers will be paid in real time. The portion that you owe will be deducted from your bank account, in real time, according to HR 3200.

Notice here in this part which is at the beginning of 2000 plus pages of the law, it is carefully worded “which may include utilization of a machine-readable health plan beneficiary identity detection card”. Here we are told that it may be a card. As you have already seen, deeper in the law [Sec. 2521 Pg. 1000] what this “may” utilize is clearly spelled out as a “class II device that is implantable”.

We can only speculate at this point why the law is set up this way. Most likely this section was written to account for the gap in time from when the process of chipping begins to when everyone has received a chip. A means of starting with a card for the sake of expedience while the process of chipping citizenry plays out. One thing is certain, the law mandates that within 3 years we will all have a chip under our skin that will serve this purpose.

Evidence of this logic is found in the deadline set for the start of the registry on page 1006.

"EFFECTIVE DATE.—The Secretary of Health and Human Services shall establish and begin implementation of the registry under section 519(g) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as added by paragraph (1), by not later than the date that is 36 months after the date of the enactment of this Act, without regard to whether or not final regulations to establish and operate the registry have been promulgated by such date."

Also on page 259, this law requires the use of Electronic medical records system in all hospitals by 2012 which will leave a gap of at least a year before the class II implantable device is required.

Republican Congressman Ron Paul from Texas, states on his website: "Buried deep within the over 1,000 pages of the massive US Health Care Bill (PDF) in a “non-discussed” section titled: Subtitle C-11 Sec. 2521— National Medical Device Registry, and which states its purpose as........ He quotes that part of the law and then goes on to say: "In “real world speak”, according to this report, this new law, when fully implemented, provides the framework for making the United States the first Nation in the World to require each and every one of its citizens to have implanted in them a radio-frequency identification microchip for the purpose of controlling who is, or isn’t, allowed medical care in their country".

That is from a currently serving member of congress. Cutting through all the political ease, the bottom line is that eventually if you want to participate in a government healthcare plan you will have to have this chip implanted in you. This law mandates that you have to have insurance and by virtue of this law guarantees that all private healthcare insurers will be driven out of business with only the government option left. We will be in a single payer system and you will have to have an imbedded chip to be a member of this system and it is mandatory that you be a part of this system.

I have a number of different pieces of data, I like to lay it all out in bit size pieces so the picture becomes clearer so I’m going to lay out the data and cut through the political circular logic and legal ease:

2004: Class II implantable devices receive FDA approval and verachip VeriMed electronic health records system also received approval from the FDA.

2009: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act authorized $23 billion in stimulus funds for health care information technology. In conjunction with that, VeriChip re-launches VeriMed electronic health records system which is a system that is made up of implantable RFID microchips, handheld scanners for emergency room personnel to read these chips, and online electronic personal health records.

2010: HR3200 was passed by the House and signed into law by President Obama. Now looking at the new law, Page 259 Electronic Medical Records system will be required for all healthcare providers by 2012.

Pages 1001-1002: A national medical device registry is created and populated with devices. Chiefly noted among them, a Class II medical device that is implantable.

Pages 1002-1004: Mandates the use of class II implantable devices to serve as the link between you and your electronic medical records.

Page 1005: The secretary of human services will establish the procedures for the linking of the Class II implantable device and electronic medical records.

Page 1007: Secretary of health and human services is given full power to intact all items required in the creation of the registry as well as the power to dictate how the devises listed in the National Medical Device Registry are to be used and implemented.

Page 503: Medical device surveillance is authorized.

Page 58: The link to your electronic medical records which is the Class II implantable device will also be linked to your bank account.

Page 1006: Without regard to whether or not final regulations are in place, you will be required to get a Class II implantable device linked to your medical records and bank account in order to participate in the government healthcare plan.

Pages 155-158: It is mandated that you have health insurance or you will pay $100.00 dollars per day that you are not covered.

Page 159: The IRS will enforce healthcare enrolment and fines for not caring health insurance.

Lastly, this law mandates that you have to have insurance and by virtue of this law, guarantees that all privet healthcare insurers will be driven out of business with only the government option left. We will be in a single payer system and you will have to have an imbedded chip to be a member of this system and it is mandatory that you be a part of this system.

This new law, when fully implemented, provides the framework for making the United States the first nation in the world to require each and every one of its citizens to have implanted in them a radio-frequency identification microchip. In theory, the intent to streamline healthcare and to eliminate fraud via "health chips" seems right. But, to have the world's lone superpower mandate a device to be IMPLANTED is not just scary. It is prophetic!

Is this in its current form the mark of the beast? No it is not. The Bible is clear that this will not become the mark of the beast until midway through tribulation when it is somehow associated with a sign of allegiance to the Anti-Christ and it is in some way imprinted with a number or symbols associated 666.

However this is the very mechanism by which it will happen and obviously since the mark will be on a global scale, this has not fully played out. Keep in mind though, we are already staring down the barrel of a global government who will implement this on a global scale. Also, the rapture is a game changing event. If the global government hasn’t come to fruition at the point of the rapture, it will overnight when the rapture happens and this law will be applied across the board. I wouldn’t be surprised if same healthcare ruse won’t be applied under the premises that the mass disappearance of people is a global healthcare emergency and the application of this law [globally and under a global government] will prevent others from disappearing or at a minimum be a means of determining what happened via the tracking capability inherent to RFID chips.

Now I’m going to ask you the question that I asked earlier: Is it now starting to dawn on you just where exactly we are in prophecy? By virtue of the fact that this hasn’t sent tremors through the Christian community, one can only assume that community is asleep at the wheel. Maybe everyone is so bogged down in all the other evil facets to this new law that this has slipped through the cracks. I tend to doubt that is the case though. I think the reason that hardly no one has seemed to even so much as mentioned this is because human nature is kicking in and it’s hard to get past the logical mind when it is telling you that this just can’t be or this is somehow a misrepresentation of the new law and all those who had a part in it. Mixed in with that, no one wants to risk their reputation or for some their ministries reputation by saying something that could get them labeled as conspiracy nut.

Captain Edward Smith, captain of the Titanic said this statement shortly before the titanic embarked on its maiden voyage: “I cannot imagine any condition which would cause a ship to founder. I cannot conceive of any vital disaster happening to this vessel. Modern shipbuilding has gone beyond that.” The point here is that people to tend see and believe what they want to see and believe and in this case, what’s easiest to not see and not believe.

All that you have seen so far is a matter of fact and easily investigated by yourself. So I say again, is it now starting to dawn on you just where exactly we are in prophecy? Romans 13:11: “And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.”

OBAMACARE - Is currently being implemented by Obama with LIGHTNING SPEED. Over 6000 pages of implementation rules have already been written. The unconstitutionality rulings in 2 well-respected courts have not deterred the government in the slightest. Americans have to know this is going on.

Remember when former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Well, guess what they found? $105.5 billion in hidden appropriations. Practically no member of Congress knew such funding provisions were included in the bill. Michele Bachmann and the Republicans will now demand that the $105.5 billion be returned to the to their rightful owners, the American taxpayers. As Bachmann says: "We’ve been hunting and pecking to look for $61 billion in savings from the budget, and we just find out now that [top Democrats] have already appropriated much more than that? $105 billion over the next 8 years and nobody knew about it? They took this money by deception. They failed to disclose critical terms of that bill. This was a fraud when they put that though. That’s why we must insist that we will not give one red cent of funding after March 18 until they first give the money back. Then we can discuss the budget..... They told no one they were prefunding the implementation. Republicans were all arguing that if we got the gavel in 2010 that we could effectively repeal Obamacare between now and 2012 because we could defund it. That option was taken away from us, the people’s voice in 2010 was neutered."

Among the more egregious provisions in the law is Section 1311(a), which gives the Health and Human Services Secretary carte blanche over the amount of taxpayer dollars that be expended toward implementation of health-care exchanges in any of the 50 states. On its face, the provision seems to be yet another example of language that runs at cross purposes with the Constitution, which uniquely assigns the capacity to allocate funds to Congress.

Another issue with ObamaCare is that it is being applied arbitrarily. The entire state of Maine has just been granted a waiver to its mandate by President Obama. So now there are 2 NEW Constitutional challenges to ObamaCare:

1). Equal Protection argument (laws must be applied equally to all Americans)

2). Powers Constitutionally reserved to Congress (allocation of funds) have been unconstitutionally delegated to the Health and Human Services Secretary (carte blanche)

An interesting perspective from a USS Ronald Reagan sailor.


Just thought I'd send an update from life today on USS Reagan. Some of you have seen of this and some haven't. Its been quite a week. Many challenging times, avoiding radioactive plumes and contamination in the environment both air and water. Sailors here are happy to help in such a trifold disaster but its also been pretty scary at times for us too. I think all the rad we've seen is safe low levels but we do hear of high levels now and again.

Since we are a nuclear carrier we have all the requisite devices to measure radiation in the environment and keep the ship safe, however, not sure the chain of command ever considered having to use these devices in a situation quite like this. Literally, our chain of command was the resident experts on things nuclear until task forces started to get set up and organized.

We had a rough time trying to figure out where to go at first but have nestled into an area north of Sendai that saw much damage and is also a safe distance from the reactors at Fukishima.

We found many people at first, ~ 10-20 landing zones, then the past few days were quieter and today we found more people that needed to be rescued.

The helos and airplanes go out and look at the country looking for people with cameras and stuff. Japanese are really smart at disaster prepardness. The displaced people that need help write sos on the ground in big fields or drop lots of stones on the ground in an helo pad shape or spell out S O S . Then the helos know there are people nearby that need help so they land and look and bring back supplies. Many, many Japanese have been helped in this way. I'm guessing they are without power but yet they inherently know to do this.

When the helos land on the ground the japanese come out and stand in a perfect line and help the helo guys unload all the goodies out of the helo in an assembly line as fast as possible. They have been ever so respectful, patient and humble. They are such an amazing people. Even in this horrible time, they maintain such respectability.

My friend who is a helo pilot told me tonight that as they were taking off after unloading supplies, a man got down on his knees and prayed to the helo guys (like a buddhist praying motion). Other Japanese have all waved, clapped, and given many types of thanks to our helo squadrons.

I saw pictures tonight from the helo's and airplanes. The pictures are amazing. I've never been to Japan but its so beautiful, the mountain sides are breathtaking and the ocean on the northeast coast is SO BLUE! There is a lot of destruction in the pictures. Towns just wiped out and houses remaining where the water stopped. I also heard the Japanese had a lot of  water walls to help protect them from tsunamis and this helped in many locations but not all of course. I haven't had much time to watch the news and all we get is cnn so these pictures today were unique to me.

Today at sea I saw a LOT of trees in the ocean. It looked like a lumber yard, logs and trees everywhere. Many trees have the root systems attached. I swear, I'd bet money that chunks of land lifted up from the seaside with the trees attached because some of the trees stick straight up and down out of the water as if they are solid in ground (but the water depth is 1000-2000' in those spots. The ocean is littered with connex boxes, I've seen soooo much debris out here, I wish we could have blown some of it up so that at least they weren't hazards to navigation.

There are media from the NYTimes here today so maybe there will be more news about us coming.

The guys on the flight deck have been working so hard, its really cold outside, they have to wear overboots over their boots to protect from contamination and they return back into the skin of the ship through the foc'sle which is now a decontamination station. I've heard that line lasts an hour to get through. If your clothes or boots are too high then they take them from you and issue you new gear. Fibers and clothes hold radiation moreso then hard surfaces and so I think some things like halyards and lines may have to be thrown away. Our 'lookouts' have been inside the pilothouse almost this entire time now and believe the island structure has some contamination on it. My forecasters stopped launching weather balloons.

My team has been working so hard and sleeping so little and giving everything they've got. The forecasts for the helos are paramount and CAG is definitely concerned for his guys. The captain has told me repeatedly to keep him abreast of the winds and call him anytime when we will be 'downwind' from the reactors. There are people making 'plumes' models of the air and sea, some are good, some are great, and some are not. Its all very complicated. And the jets, well, they haven't really been flying so who knows what will happen with them.

When this is all over I intend to travel back here and find a place in the country that is clean and safe to be and enjoy everything this beautiful country has to offer.

Yesterday everyone dontated supplies from their personal stashes. I'm hoping we do that again.

All for now, sorry if this email is kind of choppy just wanted to pass along the latest.


Please pray for the people of Japan and our Service men and women where ever they are!

U.N. Ambassador Admits: We Have ‘Not Ruled Out’ Military Support for Rebels

During an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” today, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice made a startling admission: the U.S. has “not ruled out” military support for the rebels in Libya:

HR 119: Leave Act (Loophole Elimination and Verification Enforcement).

H.R.1196, which is a comprehensive immigration enforcement bill that would require the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide, end the practice of birthright citizenship, prohibit states from granting in-state tuition benefits to illegal aliens, increase the number of border patrol and immigration and customs enforcement agents, and assist local municipalities in the enforcement of federal immigration laws, among other things.

Sponsored by: Rep. Gary Miller [R-CA42]. Rep. Miller is a long-time champion for reducing overall immigration levels and was identified as a "True Reformer" during the mid-term elections. He also helped create the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus with House Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.). The LEAVE Act was introduced with three original co-sponsors, including Rep. Myrick, Rep. John Campbell (R-Calif.) and Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas).

The LEAVE Act (H.R. 1196) would:

• Prohibit dealings that assist or encourage an illegal alien to cross the border or remain in the United States.
• Increase alien smuggling penalties including 3 and 30 year prison sentences, depending on the type of offense.
• Uphold identification security by specifying what forms of identification may be accepted by the federal government or financial institutions. Accepted forms of identification include a Social Security card with a photo ID, a REAL ID Act compliant identification card, a passport, or a USCIS photo identification card.
• Require federal agencies to coordinate with states to develop an electronic birth and death registration system, which would reduce the number of stolen identities and help prevent Social Security fraud.
• Mandate new fines and penalties for passport fraud. Make E-Verify (Basic Pilot program) permanent. Require all employees to be verified with the E-Verify program after four years of enactment.
• Prevent illegal aliens from working in the U.S. Capitol Complex by prohibiting the House of Representatives and the Senate from awarding contracts to any contractor or subcontractor who does not participate in the E-Verify program.
• Close the self-employed subcontractor loophole by withholding funds to a state or local government that does not require all business license applicants to comply with E-Verify. A company can currently hire a subcontractor to provide goods and services, bypassing the E-Verify process.
• Prohibit states from issuing driver’s licenses unless they first verify citizenship or lawful immigration status. Require the SSA (Social Security Administration) and IRS (Internal Revenue Service) to share information related to the investigation and enforcement of no-match letters.
• Prevent children born to illegal aliens in the United States from obtaining birthright citizenship. Prohibit an illegal alien from renting or owning a home, and make them ineligible for public and Section 8 housing. Specifically, applicants would be required to present an accepted form of identification such as a Social Security card accompanied by a photo ID, a REAL ID compliant identification card, a passport, or a USCIS photo identification card in order to obtain a mortgage or apply for housing benefits.
• Prohibit Social Security totalization agreements that benefit illegal aliens, including the 2004 agreement between the United States and Mexico. Prohibit illegal aliens from receiving Social Security credit for illegal work in the United States.
• Prohibit financial and nonfinancial institutions from accepting Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN) or any other foreign-source of identification from an illegal alien, such as a Matricula Consular card. Forms of accepted identification include a Social Security card with a photo ID, a REAL ID compliant identification card, a passport, or a USCIS photo identification card. These requirements also apply to the U.S. Postal Service’s “Dinero Seguro” program and the Federal Reserve’s “Directo a Mexico” program.
• Prohibit states from granting in-state tuition to illegal aliens while U.S. citizens and nationals are excluded from the same benefit.
• Reinstate the Secure Fence Act by requiring two-layered fencing along the Southwest Border by July 31, 2011. This amends provisions of the FY 2008 Omnibus Appropriations bill that has hindered construction of the border fence.
• Add an additional 8,000 Border Patrol agents and 3,000 ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents by 2015.
• Affirm the right of state and local authorities to enforce immigration laws in the course of carrying out routine law enforcement activities.
• Require the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to provide immigration enforcement training for state and local law enforcement officials.
• Reimburse states and localities for costs associated with immigration enforcement by making grants available for equipment, technology, facilities, and other products that directly relate to investigating, apprehending, arresting, detaining, or transporting illegal aliens.
• Make the Institutional Removal Program available to all states, which would expedite the deportation of criminal aliens after incarceration.
• List all immigration violators in the (NCIC) National Crime Information Center Database.
• Expand the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) to include illegal aliens that have been convicted or charged with a crime.
• Prevent the Departments of the Interior and Agriculture from impeding border enforcement activities on public lands.
• Prohibit the DHS and DOJ (Department of Justice) from making funds available to cities that provide sanctuary to illegal aliens.

Carolina Journal Exclusives: NCGA Preview: Week of March 28

Redistricting, broadband on the agenda

By David N. Bass

March 28, 2011

RALEIGH — In a week that could prove to be its busiest yet of the long session, the North Carolina General Assembly is primed to tackle an array of issues ranging from open-records access to university appointments to firearms training for lawmakers.

Ongoing budget talks loom behind this week’s busy agenda, guaranteeing to widen an already gaping partisan divide between Republican majorities in the legislature and Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue. To boot, a joint House and Senate committee is scheduled to begin work Wednesday on the strife-ridden task of redistricting.

Sun Journal Letter to the Editor

Finally common sense

The General Assembly of North Carolina under House bill 351 has finally come to its senses with the pending “Restore Confidence in Government” legislation, which will require voters to be identified before voting in North Carolina elections.

We need to restore the integrity and confidence in our election process and this certainly is a fair way to handle the situation. This legislation does not discriminate against voters or suppress citizens from voting. Our children must have photo IDs for school and for admission to an R-rated movie. Adults need a valid ID to cash a check, use credit cards, purchase tobacco or alcohol, and operate a motor vehicle. Every legal resident has a valid driver’s license, military ID, or state issued ID.

If for some reason, a resident does not have a photo ID, he’ll be able to obtain one free of charge from the local election office. Gee, something so simple – finally. Thank you Reps. Lewis, T. Moore and Killian.

Top Failures of ObamaCare After One Year

President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. In just the year since, the law known as ObamaCare has already severely crippled the nation’s economy and health care system.

Despite Obama’s continued pride in his signature health care legislation, a new CNN poll shows that 58% of Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling health care.

The Republican House passed a repeal of ObamaCare in January, but the bill was blocked by the Democrat-controlled Senate. Four House committees are now drafting a replacement bill for ObamaCare. The House also passed legislation defunding ObamaCare in March, which was likewise blocked by the Senate Democrats. Republican leaders are committed, however, and say that they will be defunding the health care law through the appropriations process this year.


These are the top 10 failures of ObamaCare, starting with those that have had the most serious effect already on the economy, jobs, and the American people.

Obama advisor calls for a military invasion of Israel!!

We are not a liberal Democracy, were a Democratic Republic. Major difference!!


Guess Which Company Paid $0 in Taxes (on $14.2 Billion in Profits)? Hint: Its CEO Works for Obama

Half of all Americans don’t pay federal taxes on their income. And neither, apparently, does General Electric, the multi-national company that reaped $14.2 billion in profits last year. Though G.E. is the largest corporation in the U.S., it did not have to pay a dime in U.S. taxes, according to the New York Times. In fact, the company claimed $3.2 billion in tax benefits.

BREAKING NEWS – Glenn Beck Puts It All Together…From Tunisia To Libya, Conspiracy Revealed (UPDATED)’

Randy's Right--March 25. 2011

UPDATE: The three video clips from Glenn Beck’s radio show this morning have now been uploaded to YouTube, are now embedded at the bottom of this post, and you should be able to see all three of them.

Glenn Beck just finished with his breakdown of the ties that bind the radical left to radical Islam, from the White House to Soros to Libya. There are no coincidences in life, and when it comes to American Freedom, the Liberty of the American People, as with the protection of my family, I simply don’t believe in coincidences.

To hear the whole thing explained was one of those moments when those of us who believe that the evidence showing that there is a conspiracy to overthrow the freedoms of all nations hasn’t, and cannot, be explained away, and that there really is a vast, leftist conspiracy against not only the people of America, but of the entire world. Many of you will remember that Hillary Rodham Clinton leveled the converse charge against our side back in the 1990′s, providing further proof that the left is constantly accusing the pro-freedom side of doing precisely what they, themselves, are doing. When the left accuses, start looking for evidence that they’re doing what they accuse us of doing; it’s going to be there, it always is.

Today’s revelation began when a caller pointed out that Susan Powers is the wife of Cass Sunstein, the man Glenn Beck calls ‘the most dangerous man in America.’ Apparently SOME on our side knew this, but hadn’t yet put things together as Glenn just did.

Samantha Power (born September 21, 1970) is currently a Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and runs the Office of Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights as Senior Director of Multilateral Affairs on the Staff of the National Security Council.

I did a little research, and confirmed this, thanks to a website called

Shariah Law on America’s Shores: Townhall Magazine Examines ‘Terror’s Secret Weapon’

March 24, 2011

The impending threat of radical Islam is not one that stops at America’s borders. A detailed new analysis featured in the April issue of Townhall Magazine, posted here as an online exclusive for Blaze readers, examines how Muslim radicals are aggressively using liberal courts, American businesses and outspoken activists inside our own country to implement Islamic Shariah law — an uncompromising religious code that runs counter to freedoms preserved in the American Constitution.

Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS launches Wikicountability document-sharing website

Through his Crossroads GPS organization, former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove rolled out a new document-sharing website similar to Wikileaks on Wednesday called Wikicountability. Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio told The Daily Caller the website’s goal is to provide a one-stop place for access to Obama administration documents, both ones that are already public and those received through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

NC RENEGADE: You Can’t Make This Up

You Can’t Make This Up

March 23, 2011

Deborah Ross is an attorney and representative in the NC General Assembly who should choose her words more carefully. Since when it is discrimination to enforce the laws of the federal government? She is more concerned with the rights of illegal aliens than serving the people of North Carolina. And just to be clear, North Carolina is in the United States of America which is part of the North American continent. People who are citizens of this country are called “Americans” because it is the name of our country.


Sun Journal Letter to the Editor: What's In a Name? Louis Call

March 23, 2011 7:47 PM

Perhaps the time has come, long before the 2012 elections, that we take a hard look at our president. It would be unfair to label anyone without first taking a look at their actions, not just their words.

Consider this:

On the afternoon of Feb. 15, President Barack Obama bestowed the highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, on John J. Sweeney. Sweeney served as president of the AFL-CIO from 1995 to 2009. He is also a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and repealed the union’s longstanding rule banning Communists from meaningfully participating in the union.

Sweeney became a founder of the AFL-CIO’s Committee for Change, which took the nation’s largest coalition of labor unions in a more radical direction. This should come as no surprise to those of us who have been following the events in Wisconsin.

Obama has made clear the kind of person he believes is worthy of the nation’s highest non-military award: a socialist and fellow-traveler who dedicated his life to radicalizing the labor movement and promoting Barack Obama’s career.

Another handpicked Obama appointee is Mark Lloyd the FCC diversity czar. Lloyd cites author and radical organizer Saul Alinsky as a source of inspiration, and has praised Venezuela President Hugo Chavez for his “incredible” attainment of a “democratic revolution.” With Obama’s attempt to take over the internet on the pretense of internet security, we could find ourselves as many in Cairo recently did, with the shut down of their entire Internet network.

The list of Obama appointees is riddled with characters whose political agenda is rife with the threads of Socialism weaved into them. Some are still in power, others have left such as Van Jones, an avowed communist. You might ask why he was there in the first place, but in your heart you know the answer. Our great country is being systematically taken over by a president with a socialist agenda. Don’t listen to his words, watch what he does; our grandchildren are counting on us. Let’s not let them down.

Obamacare: No Room For The Terminally Ill

Barack Obama's Death Board... the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research (FCCCR), has established guidelines that show the government cannot afford to invest taxpayer dollars to treat terminally ill patients who are going to die anyway.


Reps. Issa and Walsh Introduce Constitutional Protection Act to End ObamaCare Spending Until Constitutional Challenges are Resolved

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (OGR), and Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), a member of the OGR Subcommittee on Health Care, today announced the introduction of the Constitutional Protection Act – legislation that will delay the regulatory and administrative implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act until federal court challenges to its Constitutionality are resolved.


Gun Owners of America

Concealed Carry Reform Bill Could Move This Week in House of Representatives

Please contact your state Representative!

A bill to allow Right-to-Carry permit holders to carry concealed firearms in restaurants that serve alcohol may come to the floor of the NC House as early as Wednesday. The bill was reportedly delayed by members of the Republican caucus, so pressure is needed to be sure this bill comes up for a vote.

Introduced by state Representatives Mark Hilton (R-96), Jeff Barnhart (R-82), Fred Steen (R-76), and Kelly Hastings (R-110), HB 111, repeals the restaurant ban for concealed carry permit holders, prohibits local government from banning permit holders from carrying in local parks, and protects permit holders who carry in State Parks.

This good bill was amended by anti-gunner Rep. Debra Ross (D-38) to allow restaurant servers to ask anyone served alcohol whether they are carrying firearms. Gun Owners of America opposes this "poison pill" amendment and urges the legislature to remove it from the bill. Permit holders are not allowed to consume alcohol while carrying, but are not prohibited from ordering for a spouse or friend. It is an unnecessary amendment that gives wait staff a law-enforcement function and exposes the permit holder to unwanted attention.

Please contact your state Representative rights away and urge him or her to support efforts to remove the Ross amendment, and to support the passage of House Bill 111. Click HERE to locate your Representative. Legislators are listed by county; simply follow the link for contact information.

State Department Promises Move Toward Ratification - - Protecting Children by Empowering Parents 


On March 10, the Obama administration told the UN Human Rights Council that it supports the UNHRC's recommendations that the United States should “ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child [CRC].” Moreover, the administration promised that it “intend[s] to review how we could move toward its ratification.”In the meantime, SR 99 opposing ratification of the CRC is very close to its first major milestone. As of yesterday, Senator Jim DeMint's resolution, which expresses the reasons Senators oppose the UN child rights treaty, has 32 cosponsors, with 2 more senators committed to sign next Monday.This is great news - but it is not enough!We need to recognize that the Obama administration and the UN will not give up so easily. Thirty-four senators signed a similar measure regarding the Panama Canal treaty a few years ago, and the administration twisted arms until enough changed their minds to ratify that controversial treaty.We cannot be satisfied with 32 Senators, or even with 34. We need to aim for at least 40 co-sponsors of SR 99 to make sure that the CRC cannot move forward in this term of Congress.

Pro-CRC States?Additionally, state legislators in both Illinois and Rhode Island have introduced resolutions calling for the ratification of the CRC. Amazingly, the Rhode Island resolution admits, “If enacted, the [CRC] would become superior to the laws of the states and their judicial systems, and would be subordinate only to the text of the [U.S.] Constitution.” Any state legislator who wants a treaty to become superior to his or her own state’s law is confessing the inability to enact state laws that are sufficient to protect children. They should do the honorable thing and resign if they feel so incompetent.(Residents of Rhode Island please see our alert here and call today!)

Take Action: Call Now!In light of the promise to the UN made just two weeks ago, we can expect greater pressure coming from the administration in very short order. We must continue to press on while we have the momentum.Check the list of co-sponsors of SR 99 and call your senators today if they are not on the list. Urge them to stand for American self-government and the freedom of families to make good decisions for their children.Finally, if you can help us with a donation for this cause, please click here.

Many of you carried your message to Capitol Hill before. It is time to do it again.

We cannot continue to spend our way out of debt. We need to take the first step toward financial stability and Cut Spending Now. Hardworking taxpayers like you already feel the burden of “spend now, pay later” politics.

It’s time that spend-crazed politicians in Washington feel the pressure too.

Click here and register today!

They need to hear from you as they crunch numbers and grapple with this year’s budget. You’ve had to tighten your family budget in this struggling economy. They should have to tighten the national budget too.

We must be louder.

An often-overlooked portion of President Barack Obama’s prized health care law, the creation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), will face heat in the coming months from Congress and from the courts. Congressman Phil Roe, Tennessee Republican, told The Daily Caller the IPAB is the “real death panel” in the health care law, as compared to “end-of-life counseling” provisions in Obamacare that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin once deemed “death panels.”

Two years after an historic election, Americans asked for a refund. Unfortunately, the dramatic reversal we witnessed in November merely presented the opportunity for a refund. It was the first victory in a long war for the heart and soul of both our country and the Republican Party.

During the first two years of his presidency, Barack Obama spent more than the first four years of the Reagan administration. It took from our nation’s founding until 1991 to rack up as much cumulative debt as we have in the last two years. Americans expect these newly elected Members of Congress, and those that rode the powerful conservative wave into positions of enormous power, to begin issuing their refund.


North Carolina FreedomWorks Urgent Action Alert

In 2004, the State Legislature decided it should set local school calendars across North Carolina.

An excellent bill, sponsored by Representative Burr, would return control of the local school calendar to local board of education members: HB 175, "Putting Students First/Local Control".

It is the position of North Carolina FreedomWorks that this is an egregious violation of local control. It is local school board members who should be setting the school calendars for their school districts.

"Putting Students First/Local Control" was referred to the House Committee on Education where a committee vote was planned for two weeks ago. Speaker Tillis asked the bill be held until further notice. "Putting Students First/Local Control" is an important bill which we were assured would be heard in the House.

Please call AND e-mail Speaker Tillis: Politely request that he allow HB 175, "Putting Students First/Local Control" to be heard immediately in the House Committee on Education!

Speaker Thom Tillis:

Members Corner: Cheryl Switzer on HB 307

Cheryl sent the following letter to NC Representative Norman Sanderson:

It is my understanding in the 2011 Session, HB 307 is currently in committee for review. This bill if passed will allow the county of Wake and the towns of Cary, Clayton, Wendell, and Zebulon to use electronic means to provide public notice in lieu of publication. I applaud the effort to save money, but not at the expense of public knowledge. The down side to this is numerous. Internet is not free and many homes do not have Internet even in this day and age. I think the precedent being set by this bill may be costly to many people on a personal level. As of 2010, 33 percent have no access to the Internet and those numbers according to the 2010 U.S. Census are higher for Hispanics and Blacks. Let us not forget that many older citizens don’t use the Internet at all.

Our newspapers have always been the best source and they should continue to provide our local and state advertising information. Local government websites should not be the only place to find information. In fact, government websites are horrible. The Internet although remarkable is not always easy to use, not always online, and to many people a scary place to visit. I strongly suggest rejection of the Local Electronic Notice bill. Let us continue to have an open and transparent government.

Please vote against this bill and ask others to do the same.

ObamaCare–One Year Later

By Adam Bitely – One year ago yesterday, ObamaCare was passed in the House of Representatives. And just one year later, the fate of the legislation is still unknown.

Since Obama signed the ironically named “Affordable Health Care Act”, a federal court in Florida has ruled ObamaCare unconstitutional, a federal court in Virginia ruled the individual mandate unconstitutional, and Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has completely stopped implementing the law on the grounds that the Florida ruling reversed ObamaCare from being a law. And all that happened before ObamaCare celebrated its first birthday.

Californians for Population Stabilization - ALERT! New bill in Congress to secure border!

ALERT! New bill in Congress to secure border!

A Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found that only 44 percent of the southwest border is under operation control, and only 15 percent of the border is airtight. In other words, 56 percent of our border with Mexico is unsecured!

In response, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine, CA), has introduced The Unlawful Border Entry Prevention Act, HR 1091, which would authorize an additional 350 miles of fencing along the border.
Under existing law, the DHS was given until December 2008 to identify specific locations on the border for construction of infrastructure. This bill would give legal authority to DHS to build additional infrastructure where needed. It would also require DHS to report to Congress if apprehensions increase in any border sector by 40 percent in one year and then to submit a plan for gaining operational control of that sector.

ACTION NEEDEDTell your Representative that we must secure the border against illegal immigration. Send a fax or an e-mail by entering your ZIP Code and clicking "Go!"

After studying the constitutional language governing the use of military force and the debates that the Framers had on the issue, Joe Biden determined that the Founding Fathers had vested the power to authorize even the limited use of military force in the Congress not the president---unless it was necessary for the president to act swiftly to repel an attack on the United States or to rescue U.S. citizens.

DAILY RELFECTOR: Letter to the Editor

Letter: Butterfield district not a mandate

An area paper (not the Reflector) made me laugh Sunday. The headline “G.K. Butterfield calls for fair redistricting” is most amusing.

He's one who benefits from unfair districting. For him to state, “We've got to make sure the lines are drawn fairly,” shows his arrogance. He stated the Voting Rights Act of 1965 requires the 1st District remain a minority-majority district. This is untrue. North Carolina must have two majority-minority districts but nowhere does it say which ones. Convicted felon Frank Balance drew it just so he could be elected and Butterfield benefited. I am sure Butterfield hopes this district remains gerrymandered because he lost quite a few counties last election.

Districts should be made in accordance with the wishes of our founding fathers. If they were, Butterfield would now be retired and we would have a man of integrity in Washington. We were educated by his opponent's campaign in 2010, bringing to light issues about Butterfield that would have never been known.

One, Butterfield admitted to pocketing taxpayer monies following congressional junkets. You should look into what happened to this money.

Following the election and before the new Congress was sworn in, the ethics office said in a report that Butterfield received excess per diem in four trips between June 2008 and August 2009. It found that he had not returned a total of $1,509 from four trips including visits to Lithuania, Belgium, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, England, Italy, Liberia, Ghana, South Africa and Morocco. The office also found that he used per diem for expenses not for travel, like souvenirs. Has this money been returned to the U.S. Treasury? What was he doing in these exotic places? The district is the fourth poorest in the nation and he is going to these countries? Why? We need to know.

Tell Your Senator to Vote YES on Save our States Act to Halt Implementation of ObamaCare

Where There Is No Vision, The People Perish…by NC Renegade

I have found that turning points in my life do not happen based on one incident. Usually I have several “coincidences” reinforce this change so that I recognize its significance. Today in church, the sermon covered Proverbs 29:18:

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.


WTH…Interior Dept Gives Approval to Brazilian Oil Company’s Gulf of Mexico Deep Water Facility

Yes, as he continues to hold up drilling permits for U.S. oil companies in the Gulf.

(Reuters) — The U.S. Interior Department said on Thursday it gave final approval for Petrobras to use the first ever deepwater floating production storage facility in the Gulf of Mexico.  The facility will be used when the company begins oil and natural gas production at its Chinook-Cascade project in the near future, the department said. Petrobras is based in Brazil.

Nullifying Tyranny

Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century

by Thomas E. Woods Jr. (Regnery, 2010); 309 pages.

One of the big mistakes made by the drafters of the Constitution was their omission of any provision that says what is to be done if the Congress or president acts unconstitutionally. Although the Constitution places limits on their authority, nowhere does it specify the course or courses of action open to citizens or states who want to block the offending action. That omission has plagued the nation almost since its beginning.

Americans are used to one course of action available to challenge the legitimacy of government action, namely review by the judiciary. There is no language in the Constitution stating that courts have the power to declare laws unconstitutional and therefore unenforceable, much less that judicial review is the remedy.

Why shouldn't state governments have at least as much authority to overturn unconstitutional acts as the courts? The states, after all, came together to form the compact called The United States of America. Moreover, state governments are more accountable to the people than are judges serving lifetime appointments on appellate courts. (Government accountability is a weak reed, but at least it is possible to vote out governors and state legislators.)

Does it make any sense to have one branch of the federal government be the sole judge of the legality of acts of the other branches of the federal government?

CCTA Member Corner: Mary Delaney


There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the Prof noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.

The professor asked the young man what was the matter.  The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back.  He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist regime.
 In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question He asked:  "Do you know how to catch wild pigs?"

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no joke.

"You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming.

When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.  They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.

The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again.  You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom.  They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught.

Soon they go back to eating the free corn . They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity."

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America . The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies,
dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

One should always remember two truths:

1) There is no such thing as a free lunch, someone is paying for it
2) and when you begin to think that having your government provide for you and make your decisions is ok, realize that you’ve also given up the freedom that goes with making your own choices.

If you see that all of this wonderful government 'help' is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to share this with your friends.

If you think the “free ride” is essential to your way of life, then you will probably ignore this.
But God help you when the gate slams shut!

I came across this today.  As I was feeling sorry for myself, and more than a bit overwhelemed at the effort to help other Americans see the severity of what is going on in this country.  I guess we all have our moments, when we tire, when we doubt what we can do.  Sometimes God just leads you to what you need to see or hear.  Enjoy, Lynn

I wrote this on March 9th and sat on it because I found myself confronting my own human nature and the internal struggle of living up to what I know to be true. Sometimes reacting with anger is simply the way we would like to go because venting offers a type of relief. The effective patriot must cultivate a paradoxical and counterintuitive mindset.

It's not about blaming ourselves, it's about empowerment. The area of maximum effectiveness in the universe I inhabit is the attitudes and thoughts I allow in my own mind. If I change me, if I draw that line in the sand and take a stand, I change the whole world. I am powerless to enforce change in others, but I am mighty if I am willing to persuade with example and forthright and effective communication.

We change the world one person, one mind at a time and the easiest place to start is with ourselves. This is not irrelevant psychobabble; it is the real world in practice.

As I become better informed, I have more to share. As I practice tolerance, not of the victim doormat variety, but in a gentle teacher mode, I influence. I do not compel. As the old saying goes, a mind changed against its will is of the same opinion still.

The goal is to help others have that “Ah-Ha” experience. We are enablers in the sense that we want to see the smile that reflects the dawning of the light of truth. This does not happen with a bludgeon. It happens when you realize that in possessing the truth, you have the cookie and if you offer it properly, in the end, eventually, everybody wants the cookie. You don’t force feed it. You offer it. If someone isn’t ready: NEXT! You have better things to do than to pee into the wind.

Passion is a must but if we forget that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we fail to notice when our passion is received as anger or nagging and rather than an open mind, our approach causes others to raise their defenses. Likewise, we need to accept that there are many who are entrenched in their views. Don’t waste your time. Find someone who is hungry.

Obviously, as conservatives we believe that liberals are standing in quicksand, their wagons are hauling emotional baggage, their minds are darkened by a plethora of baseless opinions disengaged from fact, and if they are among the elite, they alone can claim to be a member of the rare and pure among us who can get up from the morning throne and swear to the presence of the fragrance of lilacs as they lift their trousers.

But the ordinary run of the mill liberal is usually a misinformed but well intentioned and otherwise decent human being who just happens to be wrong. Since the mind expanding awareness of Obama’s pathologies has crept into the consciousness of the voting public, many of them have internalized a sense of unease and can smell the rot.

No one wants to be wrong. None of us part easily with our cherished beliefs, but most of us will keep one eye open to find the door that leads to a new comfort zone if our foundations are shaken.

Make no mistake about it. The liberal next door is probably one of the many sleeping Americans who have simply surrendered unwittingly to the programming of the Progressive elites and their liberal media cohorts. In the right circumstances, free from peer pressure, if offered the cookie and not the stick, they’ll sneak a nibble.

Think about it, a mind starved of truth, swallowing mental swill from the pigsty of liberalism. How can they not be hungry? How long can you eat poison and not get an upset stomach? Set it up, watch for the smile cause, baby, that nibble of the truth cookie tastes good. It satisfies.

I start with me. You start with you. We find someone hungry. We share a delicacy with them: truth, served on a platter of resolute determination, garnished with kindness, tempered with understanding. After all who among us has not overslept or pressed the snooze button more than once? I’m not talking phony Pollyanna pleasant here, but you don’t make an ally out of an enemy.

For the love of God don’t jam a funnel down their throat and unload a fifty pound bag of cookie dough in it. They WILL throw up and run like hell. Bring them along. Offer them reading, websites, social media. Try to share compelling information and insights in smaller doses.

Stay away from the deep edged fringe when you talk to someone you want to win to liberty’s cause, even if you’re convinced that you have uncovered the ultimate truth, because the uninitiated will not relate to you and will not be able to overcome their suspicion that you are a fruitcake and are a danger to the world as they perceive it. Their eyes will glaze over, they will internally shut you down, and they will back away.

And for the record, ff you tell me you don’t care about that, then you’re a jaded fool and I guarantee you’re a liability to the cause of freedom, not an asset. I am repulsed by arrogance because it plays into the enemy’s hands.

Stick to core values and principles based on our country’s Founding documents. I remember always that I am a sovereign man under God and so is the person I’m talking to even if we disagree. And offer something really radical: patience and non judgmental friendship. It’s the first step to becoming an effective Patriot.

You do it one person at a time. Steadfastly, you move on to the next. Now you’re changing the world.
