Reid’s rediculous, repulsive, remorseless reasoning By T. Scott

    “A truth now and then projecting into the ocean of newspaper lies serves like headlands to correct our course. Indeed, my skepticism as to everything I see in a newspaper makes me indifferent whether I ever see one.” – Thomas Jefferson

If ever there was a time for our mainstream media to rise to new heights by telling We The People the truth, the real truth and all of the truth, it is now.

Leading a Senate that has refused to shoulder their responsibilities for many years, Reid has led this pompous group of pretenders down a pathway where nothing deemed necessary has been accomplished, but tons of legislation that only serves to burden our suffering economy has been enacted. Now, in a moment reflective of the insanity that has gripped our Senate, Reid tells that he is planning to cancel the usual 4th of July recess in order that he might show all the world how powerful he is………NOT !!

One might think that mainstream media would tire of covering Reid’s foibles but it seems that they still retain the blinders and lack of spine issued them when they were first hired. Indeed, in reading the several prime sources of our propagandist media, it is easy to conclude that they all receive their marching instructions from the same place and it becomes more clear each day that telling the news without bias is something they are not able to accomplish – perhaps it is the rings in their collective noses, or it may be that their computers all have the same glitch in which real truths, real history are not allowed to be put forth as realities which might inspire We The People to conclude that those we elect serve a different master, certainly not the demonstrated needs of We The People !

Probably the greatest shame in all of the media and Reid manipulations is the death of what was once America’s pride – the vast middle class. You might remember this group of people as the ones who manned our many-faceted war machines in the first World War as the goals of the Kaiser to enslave Europe were thwarted. Middle-class Americans fought and died that most of the world might be free from tyranny. Barely a generation later that same middle class rose again to defeat the forces of Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo as this Axis sought to enslave all the world. When the war was ended, they returned home to man the factories as this nation became the world’s greatest producer of things – or you might recall that those who elected to remain on the farm somehow managed to increase their production to the point where America fed itself and much of the world. Others worked in labs where new and marvelous medication was developed and many of the ills that plagued all the world were able to be controlled or eradicated all because of American creativity – and those who were the hands-on creators were our great and proud middle class. As innovation upon innovation sprang from the fertile minds of the free American people , the bounty of our production was shared with all the world. Americans approved several plans to rebuild the nations we had conquered and foreign aid was widely extended – such was our goal to display freedom as the great and wonderful resource is was…………..and as we now learn from Reid’s agenda, all that America ever was is being trampled, we see Obama visiting other nations telling them the he is sorry for what we did to them, that we have been a very bad neighbor and that we must change all that we have stood for and adopt a new way of living as espoused by, I suppose, Islam.

Parenthetically, if Islam is as good as some claim, I have to wonder why there have been no world-shaking developments from Islamic nations – no great advances – no great anything……except for oil. Islamic nations have existed far longer that our ‘ upstart ‘ America and it seems that they are not able to allow expressions of the freedoms that have guided America, that they impose restrictive penalties, even death upon their citizens who perform acts that, in many cases, are accepted in America as freedoms . I read their dogma and see that many of the usual freedoms we enjoy are not allowed under their ” loving ” Islam and I have to wonder why their openly cruel treatment of women is not the subject to world condemnation .Our media and our Congress refuse to tell the truth about a group which threatens the world as we know it, indeed, as various groups openly threaten Christians and Jews, that Islam is not subject to critique is a puzzlement..

Perhaps Mr. Reid is simply unaware of this terrible threat in the same manner he is unaware of what his party has done to our nation’s financial strength. He is certainly unable to balance a checkbook or to control spending with s budget since he had declined to produce a budget for over two years and now seeks to cast blame on others. It is understandable that Reid is out-of-touch with the realities behind the problems this nation faces but it is not understandable that all of mainstream media are blind as well.

We can vote to evict members of Congress. Perhaps we should withdraw our support from the media as they cannot live without our backing through subscriptions, daily purchases or patronization of their advertisers.

Mr. Reid, those who follow on his coat-tails and the media who blindly adhere to his line need to sense the wrath of the real Americans as we begin the arduous task of building a new America, founded by those great ideals as expressed in our founding documents and in our churches and synagogues.

There is nothing that a free America cannot accomplish if only the government would get out of the way. In years gone by, Americans knew our history from the first days as this nation was built and expanded – History taught us of the many five and six month long voyages that brought settlers to this new land, we were able to follow the workings of the founders of our nation, we followed George Washington and his ragged men as they fought the best equipped military in all the world, won the battles and secured the freedom we now take so cavalierly. They went to their church or synagogue to give thanks and they took pride in doing all within their power to be sure that the generations to follow would have life a little but less constrained and that the freedoms that were the cement that built this nation would serve as an example to the rest of the world. As new people came from many nations, they eagerly adopted their new nation it’s language it’s laws and they embraced freedom as they joined the ranks of greatness that characterized this very young nation and they were proud. Boy, were they proud!

Our Congress as led by the likes of Harry Reid has done all it can do to shatter all that America ever was. We as Americans, must not allow this to happen. What was our proud historical heritage is no longer being taught as, I suppose, pride in our accomplishments needs to be shattered in order that our minds be filled with the manner and style of pap dictated by the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. This thought gives rise to a consideration that, perhaps, America needs to be ruined so that other nations have no ideal form of government to which they might aspire and lacking that shining beacon on the proverbial hill, they may be more easily controlled by the forces dedicated to their oppression. Now, that is a frightening concept – enslavement of the world !!

It is our country. There are none to defend the concept that formed America as the first representative government in all the world but us – We The People.

    “So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious or otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men.” – Voltaire – 1764

Rolling Downhill Since Jan. 20, ’09

Election ’12: Nearly half of Americans think they’re worse off now than they were when Barack Obama was inaugurated. Will GOP challengers start giving him the treatment Ronald Reagan gave Jimmy Carter?

‘Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Reagan asked in his closing statement in the only debate of the 1980 presidential election.

“Is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? Is America as respected throughout the world as it was? Do you feel that our security is as safe, that we’re as strong as we were four years ago?”

These simple questions put in stark relief the tragedy that was the Carter presidency.

More than three decades later, we find ourselves again suffering through another destructive presidential term. And as in 1980, the public knows who’s to blame.

A Bloomberg poll taken June 17-20 found that 44% of Americans believe they’re worse off today than when Obama took office. Only 34% don’t believe it. Bloomberg also found that 66% of Americans think the country is heading in the wrong direction, a percentage similar to what the IBD/TIPP Poll has shown for more than a year now.

Clearly, this administration needs to be limited, as the Carter presidency was, to four years. If it’s allowed to go beyond that, the damage wrought by this “transformational” president will take years to repair.

Politics Versus Reality by Thomas Sowell

It is hard to understand politics if you are hung up on reality. Politicians leave reality to others. What matters in politics is what you can get the voters to believe, whether it bears any resemblance to reality or not.

Not only among politicians, but also among much of the media, and even among some of the public, the quest is not for truth about reality but for talking points that fit a vision or advance an agenda. Some seem to see it as a personal contest about who is best at fencing with words.

The current controversy over whether to deal with our massive national debt by cutting spending, or whether instead to raise tax rates on “the rich,” is a classic example of talking points versus reality.

Most of those who favor simply raising tax rates on “the rich” — or who say that we cannot afford to allow the Bush “tax cuts for the rich” to continue — show not the slightest interest in the history of what has actually happened when tax rates were raised to high levels on “the rich,” as compared to what has actually happened when there have been “tax cuts for the rich.”

As far as such people are concerned, those questions have already been settled by their talking points. Why confuse the issue by digging into empirical evidence about what has actually happened when one policy or the other was followed?

We Gotta Get it Right This Time By David L Lamon

Unless we act now we may not get another chance to right the wrongs affecting America in our day because of the forces of evil that have besieged us; therefore, we must get it right this time. This article is in response to a WND article posted this day 6/21/2011

In this article I single out Kofi Annan because he expresses better than the others the purpose and intent of the people involved in destroying the sovereignty of the United States to build a global government. This is a quote he made while U.N. Secretary General and I put in another of his quotes for clarification of what he meant below. Annan once famously stated, “State sovereignty, in its most basic sense, is being redefined – not least by the forces of globalization and international co-operation. States are … instruments at the service of their peoples and not vice versa.” For you information Annan is currently a member of the board of Soros’ Open Society is one of only three nongovernmental funders of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect.

Note: I have repeatedly said to kill a snake it would be better and more expeditious to shoot or cut off its head and then and only then will the body die. Our leadership should have already indicted Soros and put him in prison for his treasonous acts against the United States along with David Rockefeller but until we get the right leadership this won’t happen. I am telling you the truth when I say what we have now are people in power there only to perpetuate themselves, people resigned to the creation of a one world government and the rest are spineless politicians much like the pulpits of America, which I contend should be out front leading the charge.

What Annan Meant

Another quote from Kofi Annan former Secretary General of the U.N: Boutros Boutros-Ghali—Egyptian Politician and former U.N. Secretary General__The time of absolute and exclusive sovereignty has passed. The U.N. must tax all nations of the world in such areas as financial transactions, fossil fuel use (Cap and Trade or Tax), and international travel. Former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan reaction to Senator Jesse Helms warning to Americans that the U.N. wants to rob you of your sovereignty, “The U.S. can go to hell, we’re in charge now.”

Bipartisan study confirms: default in Geithner’s hands

The Bipartisan Policy Center released a Debt Ceiling Analysis today showing that even if Congress does not raise the debt ceiling by August 2nd, the federal government would still have enough incoming revenue to pay: all interest on Treasury securities (thus avoiding default), all Social Security obligations, all Medicare and Medicaid obligations, all Defense contractor bills, all Veterans payments, and all active duty troops, and still have almost $7 billion left over for other items.
