Socialists Playing The Race Card - AGAIN

Desperate Socialists, running for office in many states, are playing the race card, AGAIN.  Can Black people, in particular, be so stupid as to fall for this ploy over and over again.  Socialist Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, put both feet in her mouth, when she basically said that Southerners are racist, which is the reason they don't support Socialist President Pinocchio Obama.  Really??  What about the 60 or 70% of the people in all the other states that have given up on Obama.   Of course, it does not matter, Socialists know that they cannot win key Senate races if Blacks in Louisiana, Georgia and North Carolina don't go out and vote.  The only problem with this strategy is that Blacks throughout the country, like many other Americans, are actually worse off since Obama was elected, than when George W Bush was President.  Black unemployment is double White unemployment even though we have our first Black President.  And, we have the highest poverty rate in three decades in spite of Obama's SwindleUS Plans. 

The problem is not the color of Obama's skin; but the gray matter between his ears that causes him to be a Socialist ideologue and complete failure as our President.  Obama is a very smart, stupid man who believes in big government, higher taxes and burdensome regulations that are all job killers.  This has nothing to do with the color of his skin; but rather all of his Socialist Schemes to transform our country into a European style Socialist economy.  It just doesn't work, which is the reason Europe is in Recession with more than 11% unemployment.  And, Obama's weak, ineffective and feckless foreign policy has resulted in a world on fire and more danger to our nation from Terrorists around the world.   It really is that simple. 

So, here we go again.   Socialists attempting to use Black people and single women to stay in power feeding at the trough.  We have seen this story with every election cycle.  It is getting really old, particularly since without Republican votes, there would have been no Civil Right laws to protect Black people.  And, let's not forget it was Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, that freed the slaves, while Democrats in the South did everything they could after the Civil War to keep them enslaved.  That is the real history in case anyone wants to know.

Time To Dump Boehner and McConnell

Assuming the Republicans gain control of both Houses of Congress, the House and the Senate, it is time to dump the current Speaker of the House John Boehner and the presumed new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  These dinosaurs have to go if the Republican Party is to have any future.   The reality today is that Politics is really like show business.   Republican Leaders can't be a bunch of old, rich, out of touch, White People.   The leaders of the Republican Party must be younger and adept in Social Media and Marketing if the Party is to become the Majority Party in America.   It will not happen any other way. 

And, if the Republican Party is not the Conservative Party of America, it will be no more.   A Republican Party that morphs into the Socialist Party Light has no reason for being.  So RINO's do nothing, but discourage the base of the Republican Party from donating money and voting.  About 11 million Conservative Evangelical Christians did not vote in the last two Presidential elections because they saw nothing in common with either John McCain or Mitt Romney.   RINO's hurt the Republican Party.  That is all there is to it.  This Blogger voted Independent American Party in Nevada this time around rather than vote for RINO's on the ballot, including our current Governor. 

Republicans expect our leaders to be Conservative and committed to limited, smaller government, lower taxes, less regulation, a strong national defense, securing our border, energy independence and they must be Pro-Life.   This is what it will take to attract the base of the Party in Presidential elections.   Though Republicans may gain control of Congress in the 2014 elections, it is not because people like Republicans so much, but rather because Obama and his Socialist pals in government have failed so miserably on all fronts.  This is really a vote against Obama more than a vote for Republicans.   And, if Republicans do take back the entire Congress, they must vote to dump Boehner and McConnell to start fresh with younger Conservative leaders who can be the face of the Republican Party.   Otherwise, Hillary Clinton is likely to be our next President in 2016.

Defense Secretary Orders Quarantine For Returning Military

US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has ordered a 21 day Quarantine for American soldiers returning from Ebola infested West Africa.  This is just common sense.  So why did the Obama Administration pressure the Governors of New York, New Jersey and Illinois to stop their 21 Day Quarantine policy.  It is clear that one Obamanista hand does not know what the other Obamanista hand is doing.  It is time for the United States to issue a travel ban, the same as 30 other countries, for people coming from West Africa until the Ebola epidemic is brought under control.  Very few Visas should be issued, if any. 

Military personnel and health care workers going to West Africa to fight the Ebola epidemic should travel back and forth on military aircraft, rather than by commercial aircraft, to prevent exposure to the general public.  And then when these people return from West Africa, they should be Quarantined for 21 days, in comfortable quarters, with no exception.  Obamanistas need to put in place a coherent policy that is based on common sense, not some politically correct nonsense. 

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is clueless on so many issues, Ebola being one of them.  Why risk one American life needlessly in this process.  It is enough that our military and health care workers face this risk to stop this epidemic in Africa.   We should not expose one more American than necessary to this horrible disease.   What we see is government failure after failure.  Obama's failure to put in place a coherent policy concerning Ebola is just one more example.

Hillary Clinton - "Businesses Don't Create Jobs"

In trying to play to the Communist wing of the Socialist Party, Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton said in a recent speech that "Businesses Don't Create Jobs".  This is right in line with President Pinocchio Obama's statement in referring to businesses, when he said "You Didn't Build That".  Honestly, these Socialists that have never worked in the real world are clueless when it comes to creating economic growth and job creation.  Hillary Clinton has been on a government payroll, one way or another for about 30 years.   What the hell does Hillary Clinton know about creating jobs. 

Let's not forget that government is the problem and rarely the solution.  We have surely seen this adage during the Obama Presidency.  If anything, government is a Job Killer that imposes high taxes to pay for government politicians and workers feeding at the trough.  And, government continues to implement regulations that are killing whole industries and forcing companies to shift jobs overseas.  The fact is that business in America often succeeds in spite of government, not because of it.   Most jobs are created by Small Businesses as about 70% of Americans work for small companies.   These companies struggle everyday to deal with high taxes and government regulations just to stay in business. 

Hillary Clinton and the Socialist Party of America just don't get it.  We need limited government, lower taxes and less regulations to see real economic growth and job creation again in America.  As it is now, the Obama economy is barely keeping up with population growth.   We need to see 4% or greater growth in our Gross Domestic Product every year to see real job growth.  It has not happened during Obama's six years in office because of Obama failed Socialist Schemes.  Obamanistas are all job killers.   We had some hope that Hillary Clinton was smarter and perhaps different; but apparently once a Socialist, always a Socialist.

The Case For Personhood & Against Abortion

Those who are pro-life are now fighting to have the baby in the womb declared a person.   There are state initiatives making their way to the ballot that speak to this "Personhood" issue.   What I know for sure, as a new grandfather, is that not long after conception, there is a human baby in the womb.  I know it because I saw the sonogram pictures of my granddaughter as she continued to develop until birth.   To say that a fetus is a blob of tissue, warranting no protection under the law, is ridiculous.   Let's be clear.   An abortion and particularly an abortion after the first 6 or 8 weeks of conception is the murder of a human being.   I saw the little fingers in those sonograms.   To dispute that we are dealing with a human being is to deny reality. 

50 million babies have been destroyed in the United States since Roe V Wade in 1972.  It is a crime against humanity in the name of a woman's right to choose.  It is one thing to implement an abortion in cases of rape, incest, or if the mother's life is truly in danger; but to use abortion as birth control is absolutely infanticide.   How can a nation that often focuses on protecting whales, polar bears and other endangered species ignore the destruction of human life caused by abortion.  Partial birth abortion and late term abortions should be against the law under all circumstances. 

If we must have abortion in the United States, there should be reasonable restrictions.  There should be no abortions allowed after 20 weeks in the womb.  Clearly, a woman should be able to decide to have an abortion before a baby is fully formed.   Abortions should only be performed in facilities that would be required for any other surgical procedure.  And, every woman should have a sonogram before deciding on an abortion to see the human life that will be destroyed.   After getting that sonogram, there should be a 24 hour waiting period to have the mother consider her decision carefully.  None of these restrictions would impose undue hardship on anyone.  How many more babies must be destroyed, in the name of a woman's right to choose, before common sense and decency prevails.

Ebola - Quarantine Should Be Mandatory

Since Socialist President Pinocchio Obama has failed to put in place an effective policy to deal with the Ebola threat, the Governors of New Jersey, New York and Illinois, points of entry from West Africa, have ordered a 21 day Quarantine for anyone coming from these countries that have been exposed to Ebola to make sure they are not infected.   That was yesterday.   The Obama Administration has pressured them to remove it.  Governor Cuomo of New York has complied with Obama's request.  Governor Christie of New Jersey is holding firm for now.  As of this Blog Posting,  it is unclear what the Socialist Governor of Illinois will do.  Though there should be a travel ban to stop people from coming from West Africa, until that happens, this Quarantine should be mandatory in all cases.  It is just common sense.

The reality is that what we are hearing from federal government health agencies continues to change.  We don't know for sure how the Ebola virus is transmitted and apparently neither do they.  The fact that health care workers, that did wear protective garb while dealing with infected people, have contracted Ebola is puzzling.   Particularly since the family of the Liberian man who came to America with Ebola and died did not contract Ebola, even though they remained in their apartment for three days with contaminated surfaces, bedding and towels.

The American people have a right to be skeptical of anything we hear from Obama federal government officials that regularly LIE.   The Obama federal government has failed in so many areas to get it right; that what they are telling us about this Ebola threat must be viewed as questionable.   Since Obama has failed to deal with this threat properly by ordering a travel ban, the Governors of various states should step in to protect their citizens.  Let's see if they do. 

Only American health care workers and members of our military should be going to West Africa to combat Ebola; but on US military planes to control exposure to the American public.  Upon return, these Americans should absolutely be quarantined for 21 days to make sure none is bringing back the Ebola virus.   There absolutely should be a travel ban otherwise that prohibits Americans from coming and going and anyone from West Africa from coming to the United States with very few exceptions.   To do otherwise is to expose the American people to the Ebola epidemic.   It is time for common sense, something that is rare among Obamanistas, to prevail.   How many more cases do we need to see in America before Socialist President Obama gets it right.

Republicans Need To Make Big Things Happen Or Face Extinction

Should Republicans win the Senate in the upcoming election, taking over the entire Congress, they need to make big things happen, or face a backlash from the frustrated people who elected them.  This Blogger does not believe that Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senator Mitch McConnell, who presumably would be the Republican Majority Leader of the Senate can lead the Republican Party effectively to get big things done in the next two years; but time will tell.   No doubt, Obama will Veto many of the things that need to happen to get our country back on the right track; but it doesn't matter.   Republicans can and should demonstrate what they would do if they controlled all three branches of government, by enacting common sense legislation, setting the stage for the battle in 2016 for the Presidency. 

Let's start with bringing to the Senate Floor the 300 or more bills already enacted by the House of Representatives, many with bi-partisan support, that current Majority Leader Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid will not even allow to come up for a vote.  Of course, the House will have to pass these laws again in a new Congress; but they should be able to act quickly since these bills were already enacted by the House in the last two years.  In addition, Republicans should focus on nine big things to get done in the next two years as follows:

1. Immigration Reform beginning with securing our border and creating a path for legal status for illegal aliens currently in the US.   This is a Blue Card not amnesty and not citizenship. 

2. Tax Reform to lower corporate income taxes and create incentives for American businesses to create jobs in America.  In the process, personal income taxes should be cut, as well, to encourage economic development and job creation.

3. Repeal and Replace ObamaCare to end this national disaster once and for all.

4.  Putting a 10 year plan in place to Balance the Budget and pay off the National Debt.  This means cutting spending and eliminating all the waste, fraud, abuse and redundancy in federal government spending.   Many agencies, commissions and even departments should be eliminated and or consolidated.  Republicans need to get federal government spending down to no more than 17 or 18% of GDP, instead of the current 25% by shrinking government.

5.  Saving Social Security and Medicare that are both on the road to insolvency.

6.  Restoring spending cuts to the Military to protect our nation.

7.  Reigning in the EPA that is destroying jobs and whole industries.   Approving the Keystone Pipeline.

8.  Push to pay Government employees in accordance with what is common in the private sector for like jobs.  That means getting rid of cushy pension plans and replacing them with 401K's.  This also means dealing with Collective Bargaining for government employees, which even Socialist Franklin Roosevelt opposed.

9.  Privatize medical care for Veterans by selling off the Veterans Affairs medical system.   We don't need this Socialist Medical System.  Just give Vets a version of Medicare Advantage, at government expense, and allow them to go to any doctors or hospitals they choose. 

This Blogger doubts that Republicans have the guts to take on any of these big issues; but if they don't, they will lose the base of the Republican Party in future elections and the Republican Party will be no more.  If by some chance some of these issues are enacted into law, Obama will no doubt Veto any common sense solutions to solving our nation's problems; but that is OK.  At least it will prove that Republicans can govern.  If we get more of the same gutless governance from Establishment Republicans, they will go the way of the Whig Party and disintegrate.   If Republicans can't get big things done, who needs them. 

Fast & Furious - The Obama Holder Cover Up

Socialist President Obama has asserted Executive Privilege over 15,000 documents related to Fast and Furious, the Obama/Holder Scandal, when the government sold guns to the drug cartel in Mexico.  Some of those guns were used to murder both Americans and Mexicans.  So even though a court has ordered disclosure, Obamanistas refuse to allow these documents to be released.  Why?  What do they have to hide.  Apparently, Liar Attorney General Eric Holder is in this fiasco up to his ears.  Though Holder will be leaving office shortly, as soon as a new Attorney General is confirmed, it is pretty obvious that Holder was directly involved in Fast and Furious despite his denials.   Remember, this is the Attorney General who has been held in Contempt of Congress for committing perjury during Congressional testimony.  Holder should be going to jail, not a cushy retirement and $100,000 speaking engagements, which is likely. 

But why should anyone be surprised by any of this.   Obamanistas are playing out the clock on all the Obama Scandals; Benghazi, IRS Dirty Tricks, Veterans Affairs, NSA Spying on all Americans, ObamaCare, the Secret Service and now Ebola.  There have never been so many liars in any administration in my life time going back to when I was born in 1950.  The President, who promised us the most transparent Administration in American history, has given us the most deceitful.  No wonder the American people are so down on Obama as only his die hard PEEP's, about 35% of the people, still support this incompetent, dishonest President. 

Even Socialists running for office in this election have conceded that Obama is an ineffective leader.  They won't even been seen with him on the campaign trail.  This latest stunt related to Fast and Furious, just before the election, just confirms that Obama is a LIAR.   Nothing new, but rather just more of the same.   Everyone going to the polls should know that Obama and his failed Socialist Schemes are on the ballot by his own admission.  So, a vote for a Socialist Member of Congress is a vote in support of Obama.  Think about it.

Terrorism In Canada & Around The World

A Terrorist in Canada killed a soldier and injured another during a rampage near the Canadian Parliament before he was killed by the police.   This particular Terrorist changed his name to Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, from Michael Hall, when he converted to Islam.  So, it appears he was an Islamic Terrorist.   There will now be an investigation to determine whether this Terrorist was tied to ISIS, or Al Queda and or if others were involved in the plot.    But, it really does not matter whether Zehaf-Bibeau acted as a lone wolf to murder in cold blood in the name of Islam, or was directly tied to some Terrorist Group.  We will now see this happening around the world as copy cat killers murder in the name of Islam. 

The problem is that there are some number of Islamic fanatics in the world, that could number in the millions, including in Western Countries, that are adherents to Islamic Fascism.  They believe that the Koran tells them to murder other Muslims, that don't support their brand of Islam, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and anyone of another faith that doesn't believe in Radical Islam.   Their goal is to create an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East and beyond by murdering those that get in their way.  They see beheading, sanctioned in the Koran, as a particularly gruesome means of death. 

All freedom loving nations must recognize that we are at war with Islamic Fascism.  We need the same determination we had during World War II to defeat NAZI Fascism in order to defeat Islamic Fascism.   Otherwise, we will continue to have these Terrorist Attacks in our cities and while they will not bring down any one nation, they are changing our way of life, which of course is their goal.  Since 9/11, we have not only spent trillions of dollars fighting these Terrorists, we have seen our personal liberties diminished in the name of more security.  Rather than take our freedoms away, we must end the threat by hunting down these radical Terrorists down, including their leaders and financial supporters, where ever they may be and either putting them in prisons, or killing them.  What other option is there?  Most important, we must take this threat seriously because it is real.

Women Turning Against Socialists - Wow

Despite the supposed "War on Women" by Republicans, which of course is baloney, as described by Socialists in their desperate attempt to win elections on November 4, it appears that women are finally turning against Socialists and starting to favor Republicans.   This is a real problem for Socialists that cannot win without their traditional PEEP's, minorities, single women, union members, radical environmentalists, people on the dole, trial lawyers and Crony Capitalists voting for them.  Take out any one of these groups and the Socialist coalition falls apart.

It may finally be that single women, (married women usually vote Republican) are realizing that Socialist President Pinocchio Obama's failed economic policies have been a disaster for all Americans; even them.  While being on the dole for an increasing number of Americans, is a safety net, it is no substitute for a job.  And, it is very clear that Obama's feckless foreign policy has made us less safe as we face threats from Terrorists all over the world.  Further, big government is broken and we see it every day with the latest Ebola scare just being one more example of Obama government incompetence. 

Then there is ObamaCare, which has turned into a train wreck negatively impacting millions of Americans, including many young, single women.  All the Obama Scandals, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Dirty Tricks, Veterans Affairs, NSA spying on all Americans and the latest Secret Service imbroglio and all the lies that have followed them from Obamanistas make it clear that big government can't be trusted.  The Socialists are effective at fooling some of the people some of the time and even many of the people all of the time; but eventually the truth comes to light.   Single Women in America are finally seeing all the Socialist lies for what they are causing them to abandon Socialists to vote for Republicans, viewed as more competent and honest.

Socialist Election Year Strategy - Not An Accident

It would seem very stupid for Socialist President Pinocchio Obama to make statements like the election is all about his policies, even though he is not on the ballot, or confirming that Socialist Members of Congress always vote with him.  Of course this is all true, but given that Obama is so unpopular in most states, particularly Red States where Socialists are trying to hold on to their seats, it would seem pretty dumb for Obama to give Republicans the fodder they need to tie Socialist candidates to Obama; or is it?

Obama has told these Socialist candidates to do, or say whatever they must to get elected, or re-elected.  That is nothing new because everybody knows that Socialists will lie, cheat, steal, borrow, extort and history teaches us even murder to stay in power feeding at the trough.  But the fact is that by nationalizing the election and making it an Obama election, even though the President is not on the ballot, Obama is trying desperately to get his PEEP's, particularly Blacks to the polls that put him over the top twice.  Right now with Black unemployment high and double White unemployment, Blacks cannot be too enthusiastic about voting for anyone. 

Since the anti-Obama vote will go to the polls, Socialists are trying to play two games to get their PEEP's to the polls.   Socialist candidates will not utter the word Obama, particularly in Red States, unless they are saying they don't support the President's failed policies.  Some will not even admit to voting for Obama, which is really humerous.  Problem for them is that  all Socialist candidates voted to support Obama Socialist Schemes, in some cases 95 - 100% of the time, so their lies are obvious.  Socialist candidates are running from Obama like rats off a sinking ship; but it is very hard to do since without them there would have been no ObamaCare, or SwindleUS Plans. 

At the same time, Obama is telling his PEEP's not to worry that Socialist candidates are really with them no matter what they are saying on the campaign stump.  This might be workable, except for instant media that broadcasts all the pronouncements.   This Blogger believes that Obama really does not care if Republicans gain complete control of the Congress because he wants to use it as an excuse to rule by dictatorial Executive Orders.   And, there is probably some hope that Republicans will over reach in the next two years by doing some dumb stuff, which could better position Socialists for the 2016 elections.   In any case, none of this is happening by accident.  Socialists are trying to have it both ways in a last minute desperate attempt to hold on to the majority in the US Senate.   We will know on November 4 if this Socialist strategy worked.

Gay Marriage & First Amendment Rights

Marriage, a 5,000 year old sacred institution, recognized by the great religions of the world, is between a man and a woman.  In the English language, the words husband and wife are gender specific meaning a man and a woman.  That is not necessarily so in other languages.  In English, we have the words spouse, or partner that are not gender specific.  Devout Christians, Jews and Muslims adhere to the literal teachings in the Bible, Torah and Koran that condemn homosexuality as an abomination.  As a result, those that follow an orthodox interpretation of the Book cannot accept Gay Marriage.  It is what it is.

This Blogger, though very Conservative on all other issues, can accept Civil Unions; though I will not refer to them as marriage, no matter what the Supreme Court says.  Nor will I ever call two men, husbands, or two women, wives.  I would use the words spouse, or partner as more logical in keeping with the English language.  What Gay people living in Union call each other is their business; but I do not have to use terms that make no sense to me.  Civil Unions can provide all the benefits of marriage and also the pitfalls, like Gay Divorce.  Be careful what you ask for Gay
Americans.  Just ask anyone who has gone through a nasty divorce that can take years to settle.  As someone who has been married for 40 years, divorce appears to be a miserable experience most of the time.  Gays will now get to share in this misery.

Since the Supreme Court has made Gay Marriage legal, we are likely to see years of more court battles, the same as has occurred with abortion because about half the population of the United States does not accept either premise, as evidenced by all the state votes outlawing Gay Marriage and attempting to limit abortion.   People on both sides have very strong feelings about these issues.  These cases will involve First Amendment Rights related to Freedom of Speech and Religion.   The PC Police will now want to characterize any speech condemning Gay Marriage as Hate Speech.  It is already happening.

The Lesbian Mayor of Houston is now persecuting several Evangelical Pastors for their sermons against the Gay Life Style.  The Mayor is demanding copies of their sermons and all personal correspondence with Church Members, which is a clear infringement of 1st Amendment rights.  The fact that I will not use the words husband or wife, or marriage, no matter what others say, related to Gay Civil Unions might even be considered Hate Speech, which of course is ridiculous.

We do need to get past all of this.  Ironically, Gays should be a logical constituency of the Republican Party because they tend to be better educated and more prosperous than average Americans, which refutes the fallacy that there is discrimination against Gays.  If the PC Police insist on limiting Freedom of Speech and Religion, it will only harden opposition to the Gay Life Style.  As has been the case related to abortion and radical feminists that refuse to accept any reasonable limits on abortion, if rational thinking does not prevail and radical, strident Gays take this on, we will see 40 or more years of 1st Amendment court battles related to the Gay Marriage issue, which will only cause animosity.  

Those that believe Gay Marriage is wrong on religious grounds should be free to hold that belief.   Attempts to persecute devout Christians, Jews and Muslims will lead to a backlash and more division in our country.  This Blogger suggests that Gays accept their gains and get on with life.   There are so many other problems we have to deal with in our country, that this one should be at the bottom of the list.   Gay Americans, picking a fight, when they have already won the battle, only brings more attention to the issue.  As the song says, Let It Go.

Support Yucca - Oppose Nevada's Margins Tax

After exhaustive environmental studies that took years, Yucca Mountain, about 100 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada was selected as the nation's nuclear waste repository.  This site was selected to contain spent nuclear fuel from all over the country because of its ideal conditions out in the dry desert.   Utility companies from all over the country and through them their rate payers and the federal government spent $18 billion building Yucca.  Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada, the current Senate majority leader, has effectively blocked utilization of Yucca, even though it would create thousands of high paying jobs in Nevada.  But to be fair, current Republican politicians including Governor Brian Sandoval, Senator Dean Heller and Congressman Joe Heck of Las Vegas also oppose Yucca. 

All of them are operating under an old paradigm, presumably that Yucca would be used to store spent nuclear fuel from other states into perpetuity.  That paradigm is no longer operable.  Instead, Nevada could use Yucca to build a vibrant nuclear industry, re-processing spent fuel and selling it all over the world.   France re-processes 96% of its spent nuclear fuel safely and sells it profitably to supply nuclear plants around the world.  And, if global warming is an issue, nuclear energy does not generate any carbon based pollutants.  In many ways, nuclear energy is the most efficient and cleanest of them all. 

The Teacher's Union in Nevada has put a new corporate Margins Tax on the ballot that supposedly would provide revenues to support the public schools; though there are no guarantees that these monies would be used for schools, if this ballot propositions is enacted.   The Margins Tax would tax small businesses on their top line revenues, even if they are not profitable.  It is the worst possible form of corporate income tax.  Many Private Sector Unions, along with the business community, are opposed because this Margins Tax would be a job killer and discourage companies from moving to Nevada.  As such, Nevada voters on November 4 should vote NO on ballot measure 3. 

Instead, we should all support utilization of Yucca to build a vibrant nuclear industry in Nevada.   Nevada could charge a sales tax on every pound of re-processed nuclear fuel sold.  All of that money could go to support the public schools and or for other vital state services.  Governor Sandoval of Nevada and the Socialist controlled state legislature just voted unanimously to provide $1.2 Billion in incentives to attract the new Tesla Battery Plant to Northern Nevada to create 6,500 jobs.  Time will tell if that was a good decision in terms of return on investment to the state. 

The fact is that the state of Nevada would not have to spend one dime to create a Nuclear Industry in Nevada that could create far more jobs and positive revenues for the state.   This will probably never happen as long as Dirty Harry is still in power; but it is time for Republicans in Nevada to support the creation of a Nuclear Industry in Nevada, as a counter weight to Senator Dirty Harry Reid's opposition.   Aside from the good paying jobs that would be created, the sales tax revenues generated could amount to several hundred million dollars a year,  paid by out-of-state purchasers, which would benefit all the citizens of Nevada, without being a drag on our economy.

Independent American Party - The Conservative Alternative

This Blogger has been a registered Republican since voting for Ronald Reagan in the election of 1980.  With one exception, when I voted for Ross Perot, to punish George Bush, the elder, for violating his "Read My Lips, No New Taxes Pledge", I have always voted Republican, even if it meant holding my nose to vote for a RINO, as was the case four years ago when I voted for our current Governor to prevent Rory Reid, Dirty Harry's son, from becoming the Governor of Nevada.  

With this election and early voting, I will never do that again, no matter how bad the Socialist alternative.  We have just been duped too many times to continue voting for RINO'S, that once elected vote and act as Socialists.  In Nevada, we have the option of voting None of the Above for statewide offices.  I had determined that I would do just that, rather than vote for our RINO Pro-Choice Governor Brian Sandoval and for various other RINO'S on the ballot. 

However, before doing so, I noticed that there were candidates on the ballot labeled as the Independent American Party.  I went on their website to check out their party platform to discover that this really is the Conservative Party of America.   Since I have always labeled myself a Common Sense Conservative, both in this publication and during my radio show, I found that with just a few exceptions, their beliefs are my beliefs.  I would be stronger on National Defense than the IAP appears to be and a bit more liberal related to Civil Unions for Gays; but otherwise their support for limited Constitutional government, free market capitalism, lower taxes, less regulations, protecting free speech and religion and gun ownership rights, the right to life and securing our border is right in line with all of my Conservative views.

As a result, I did not have to vote None of the Above, rather than vote for various RINOS.  If there was no Republican Conservative alternative, I voted Independent American Party.   I keep saying that if the Republican Party is not the Conservative Party of America, it has no reason for being and therefore, it will be no more.   A Republican Party led by John Boehner and Mitch McConnell has no future.  If the Republicans do not regain the Senate in the November, 2014 election in a wave election, given Obama's unpopularity, failed Socialist Schemes, the Terrorist threat we face around the world, all the Obama Scandals and all the Socialist seats being contested in Red States carried by both McCain and Romney, it will be because Conservatives stayed home out of disgust for the National Republican Party, run by Establishment Country Club Republicans, including Boehner and McConnell, that many Conservatives see as RINO'S.  

If Republicans can't win under the current ideal circumstances, then they can't win at all.  This election may be a turning point, one way or another.  The Conservative Base of the Republican Party is restless.  We are looking for leaders that support and act on Conservative principles, as an alternative to more big government Socialism, that is bankrupting and destroying our country.   We will no longer vote for business as usual and Republicans feeding at the trough, just like their Socialist comrades, that have been in office for decades. 

Compromise that advances more Socialist Creep is unacceptable.  The only Compromise that is acceptable are those actions that push back 100 years of Socialist Creep.  If the election in November does not produce a solid Republican Majority in Congress, then it is time for a new Conservative Party to emerge.  With a little tweaking, that political party could be the Independent American Party.

Socialists Blame Ebola On Budget Cuts

Socialist Minority Leader, Congresswoman Nancy Dizzy Pelosi of San Francisco is now saying that the Ebola Epidemic in Africa and maybe America, is the result of Republican budget cuts.  They are even running ads saying that "Republican Budget Cuts Kill".   Last time I read the news, both the US Senate and the Presidency are controlled by Socialists, so if there have been budget cuts, they were approved by Socialists, as well as, Republicans.  Problem is that there have been no real budget cuts to government health care agencies; just slower spending increases. 

The Botox Pelosi uses to maintain her dumber than wood look has gone to her brain.  The reality is that spending for all US government health agencies, since the year 2000, have doubled and in some cases tripled.   They are getting billions of dollars every year, some of which is wasted on stupid studies; i.e. $325,000 to determine that wives would be happier if they just calm down.  As someone who has been married for 40 years, I can say we did not need a study to determine the obvious.  Matter of fact, Republicans in the House actually appropriated more money for health agencies than was requested by the Obama Administration.   So again, we see another big Socialist lie, so bad that the Washington Post have given them four Pinocchio's.  Why is it that the Socialist answer to big government failure is always that government funding is never enough. 

The United States federal government is spending about $4 Trillion a year; about a Trillion of which is borrowed money.   Our National Debt is approaching $18 Trillion, with no end in sight and that does not include the other $100 Trillion sitting out there in unfunded liability for Social Security, Medicare and Federal Pensions.  Currently, federal government spending accounts for about 25% of total Gross Domestic Product.  When local and state governments are added in, total government spending accounts for about 40% of total Gross Domestic Product.

Obviously, the PEEP's who vote for Socialists, many of whom pay no income taxes at all and some of whom are on the dole don't understand any of these numbers; nor do they care that the US is headed toward bankruptcy, fiscal calamity and likely civil strife on our streets as long as they can continue feeding at the trough.  However, Socialists politicians do understand these numbers; yet they call for even more borrowing, taxing and spending.   It should be considered political malpractice punishable by jail time, or maybe electric shock treatments to the brain in an attempt to restore sound thinking and a dose of reality.

As Ralm Emmanuel, the current Mayor of Chicago and former Obama Chief of Staff always said, "never let a good crisis go to waste" presumably to raise taxes and spending to grow government.  So now it is Ebola at our doorstep because Obama refuses to restrict travel from West Africa that is the crisis du jour.  While Socialists can and do fool some of the people some of the time and even some of the people all of the time, the majority of Americans, those of us with a brain in our head, know the truth about every issue. 

Ebola is not the result in cuts in federal government spending.  Ebola is the result of a highly contagious virus, that still has no vaccination as a remedy and in some cases government incompetence.  No doubt, since there is money to be made, a vaccination will be developed by big Pharma to deal with the epidemic; though probably not in time to prevent the deaths of many more people around the world.   In the mean time, Pelosi needs to lay off the Botox because it not only provides that stupid deer in the headlights look; it is impacting her ability to think rationally and tell the truth. 

Obama Appoints Political Hack As The Ebola Czar

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama has appointed a political hack to serve as the Ebola Czar.   Ron Klain, the President's choice, has no medical background.  Instead, Klain served as Chief of Staff for both Al Gore and Joe Biden.   Klain has been a long time Socialist political operative involved in managing many partisan fights, including opposing the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.  This is the equivalent of appointing Carl Rove, as the Ebola Czar, often called the architect who managed Bush II's two electoral victories.

In appointing Ron Klain as Ebola Czar and passing over the entire federal government  medical establishment, it is clear that Obamanistas are very concerned about both the upcoming elections in November and 2016.  As a result, Obama appointed a spinmeister who will put out Socialist propaganda to make it seem like Obama is engaged in the crisis.   Obamanistas in the federal government already have little credibility because of all the lies we have seen related to Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Dirty Tricks, Veterans Affairs, NSA spying on all Americans and the latest Secret Service Scandal.   The Center for Disease Control's, changing story on the Ebola Crisis, is just one more example of government failure and propaganda, rather than telling the American people the truth. 

Here is the truth.  We need to ban travel from West Africa to the United States until the Ebola Epidemic is over, the same as has occurred by 30 other countries.   The 13,000 Visas issued each year to people from these countries, coming to the US, is 13,000 chances of bringing the Ebola virus into the US.  Allowing this travel to continue is just plain crazy.  And, clearly, it is easier to contract Ebola that the CDC is telling us.  Ebola lives on surfaces for some number of hours, which makes catching the disease easier.  And, though technically Ebola is not an airborne virus, as of now, if someone coughs or sneezes, the liquid that can be generated, is highly infectious.   So, no matter what we start to hear from the new Ebola Czar and political operative in an attempt to do damage control, these are the facts.

Socialists Working Their PEEP's For The Upcoming Election

Since US Socialists cannot run on their failed Socialist Schemes designed to create bigger government, higher taxes and more regulations and to kill jobs through environmental wacko actions, they have to work their PEEP's to get out the vote by highlighting other emotional issues.   So every election cycle, they rally union members, those on the dole, minorities, single women many with children and radical feminists, environmental wackos, trial lawyers and crony capitalists. 

It is actually pretty funny because in the weeks just before an election, Socialists go down the list of issues important to these single issue voters.  Let me count the way:

1. Union Members - Socialist promote union membership, even though it often kills jobs, as US companies have moved those jobs overseas.  Most important, they promise higher compensation and benefits to public employee union members, well beyond what is common in the private sector, even if it means bankrupting our country.

2. Those On the Dole - Socialists make it easier for people to go on Food Stamps and Welfare to pay them off.  Since Obama was elected, this group has grown by 20 million to about 48 million.  Disability Benefits have grown by 2 million to about 10 million.  So by killing jobs, Socialists get more people on the Dole to buy votes.

3. Minorities - Socialists paint Republicans as supporters of Slavery even though it was Republican Congressional Votes that President Johnson used to pass Civil Rights Legislation.  And, let's not forget, it was President Lincoln, a Republican, who ended slavery.  Specific to Hispanics, Socialist scare them into believing that Republicans want to deport them all.  Ridiculous.

4. Single Women and Radical Feminists - Socialists will claim that Republicans want to stop all their abortions and birth control pills even though none of this is true.  And, it has often been Republican appointed Supreme Court judges who have ruled in favor of an unlimited right to Abortion, much to the chagrin of those of us that support reasonable limits.

5. Environmental Wackos -  Socialists support destroying whole industries, like coal and forestry, among many others to please their Environmental Wacko supporters, even though it is pushing more manufacturing jobs outside the US and destroying the Middle Class in America that Socialists claim to champion. 

6.  Trial Lawyers - Socialists oppose limits on Medical Malpractice Cases and frivolous lawsuits to please their Trial Lawyer donors.   This is costing  business billions of dollars every year and killing jobs.

7.  Crony Capitalists -  There are many American companies, feeding at the trough, with all kinds of special government deals and tax incentives that benefit them to the tune of billions of dollars.   It is a big part of the corruption that exists in Washington DC and many state capitols, perpetrated by lobbyists, as these companies donate campaign contributions to their political benefactors.  To be fair both corrupt Republicans and Socialists benefit from Crony Capitalism. 

And, so here we go again.   We will see millions of dollars spent on single issue advertising, directed at their PEEP's, to get out the Socialist Vote.   What is really surprising is that these constituencies buy it every time.  Can they really be that stupid to not see through all the Socialist propaganda.   The answer is Yes.  Let's not forget Obama was elected twice and many Socialist politicians have been in office for decades stealing from the American people.

Pentagon Calls Climate Change A National Security Issue - Really!

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel now claims that Climate Change is a National Security issue.  Hagel made this claim at a Conference in Peru, rather than staying in the US to focus on the War we are fighting in Iraq and Syria.  Talk about priorities, or the lack thereof. Since Hagel often appears clueless when questioned during hearings before Congress, perhaps he has been drinking environmental wacko Kool Aide to come to this conclusion.  Even if Climate Change is a legitimate problem in the next 50 - 100 years, which is still debatable, to equate Climate Change with the many real National Security threats we face today is laughable.   ISIS is winning in Iraq and Syria in their goal to establish an Islamic Fascist Caliphate in the Middle East and beyond.   ISIS is brutally murdering Muslims, Christians and Jews in an act of genocide.   ISIS is committed to destroying Western Civilization as we know it.

Iran, that funds Terrorists around the world, is inches closer to having nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them.  North Korea, run by lunatics, has nuclear weapons and is perfecting the missiles to reach the United States.   China is threatening its neighbors in the South China Sea.  Russia has invaded the Ukraine with hostile boots on the ground in the middle of Europe for the first time since the end of the Cold War.  The Middle East is in turmoil and on fire.

We face an Ebola epidemic in West Africa, which could impact the entire world if it is not contained there.   There are Terrorists coming across our border with Mexico because Obamanistas refuse to secure the border.  Obama and his minions are gutting the US Military at a time that we need to be stronger than ever.  And, Secretary of State Chuck Hagel is talking about Climate Change.  Surely, there are many more National Security threats of far greater significance.

Ebola - Another Government Failure In The Making

The majority of the American people have lost all faith in the ability of the Obama federal government to solve problems.  And, no wonder.  We have seen failure after failure, with ObamaCare at the top of the list.   We have been lied to repeatedly by both elected officials, including Socialist President Pinocchio Obama and all his pals in Congress, as well as, appointed officials like LIAR Attorney General Eric Holder, the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States and all the characters at the IRS, Veterans Affairs, NSA, EPA and the State Department.  As a result of all the Obama Scandals, we see the waste, fraud, abuse and all the crooks and liars in government feeding at the trough, at taxpayer expense.  And, now comes Thomas Frieden, head of the Center For Disease Control trying to assure us that we have little to fear from Ebola.  Oh really!!

A nurse in Dallas has contracted Ebola from her contact with the Liberian man, who lied and came to our country with the disease.  His family is now suing the hospital, claiming that they somehow caused his death.  Outrageous!  This particular nurse wore the protective garb that is prescribed by all the medical brainaics and yet somehow, nobody can really say how, she now has Ebola.  Frieden at the CDC is saying that she did not follow the protocol for dealing with infectious diseases.  I guess that means that when she took off the protective garb that she came into contact with the virus, which can live on surfaces for some number of hours.  As a result, we are likely to see other infected people in the Dallas area.  And, why on earth would anyone working at a hospital in the US want to expose themselves and their families and friends to this disease; unless and until we have a better understanding of all the ways the disease can be transmitted.  Thomas Frieden at CDC appears clueless. 

While technically Ebola is not supposed to be an airborne virus, just yet, that is a fallacy because if someone with Ebola coughs or sneezes, the liquid that is spewed forward can be a source of contagion.   The CDC has taken the politically correct position that it is not necessary to stop all travel coming from West Africa.  That is just plain crazy.   It is estimated that about 13,000 Visa are issued each year to people coming from these Ebola infested West African countries to the United States.  That is 13,000 chances to bring the epidemic to the United States.  Those odds are just too high. 

We need to assist those West African countries with combating Ebola in those countries to stop the epidemic; but we absolutely should stop allowing travel into our country from those countries NOW.  Clearly, there are airlines that have stopped travel to West Africa because they do want to expose their employees and passengers to the virus.  Other nations, including many in Africa, have already stopped entry into their countries.  It is time for the US to do the same. 

The argument that this will somehow harm the economies of these West African countries must be a secondary concern, when compared to the likely spread of this deadly disease all over the world. Besides, business can continue as usual through conference and video calls.  At this point, we cannot believe the Center For Disease Control actively trying to downplay this threat.  This appears to be another government failure and cover up happening before our very eyes.  Sadly, more Americans will die if we continue to allow this travel from West Africa into our country.  In the mean time, Obama went golfing right after he took a call concerning Ebola.  So what's new.

A Vote For Obama, Reid and Pelosi In November

Anyone who votes for a Socialist member of the House of Representatives, or the US Senate in any state on November 4 is really voting for Socialist President Pinocchio Obama, Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the Senate Majority leader and Congresswoman Nancy Dizzy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader.   President Obama said it best when he told us that though he is not on the ballot in November, all of his Socialist Schemes and failed policies are on the ballot.  And, if the Socialist were to maintain their majority in the Senate and gain a majority in the House that means that Dirty Harry and Dizzy Pelosi will remain in control of our government.  The last time the government was completely controlled by Socialists, the Presidency, the Senate and the House of Representatives, we got the much hated ObamaCare.   Just imagine what other evil things they would do if they had the votes to do it. 

Remember, is was Dizzy Pelosi, who said they would have to pass the bill to know what was in it.  ObamaCare was enacted without a single Republican vote and none of the Socialists that voted for ObamaCare actually read the monstrosity.  Of course,  Obama, Reid and Pelosi LIED to the American people when they told us we could keep the same medical plans, doctor and hospital  groups.  They also told us that our medical premiums would go down on average by $2,500 per family, when in fact medical premiums, deductibles and co-pays have gone up by more than $2,500 with more increases coming later this year for those of us that pay for medical insurance.  In addition, the numbers related to ObamaCare were all smoke and mirrors.  The Congressional Budget Office is now telling us that it will cost hundreds of billions of dollars more than originally projected, contributing to the bankruptcy of the United States.   

We have a Do Nothing Congress because Dirty Harry will not allow more than 300 bills, enacted by the House of Representatives, many with bi-partisan support, to even come up for debate and a vote in the Senate.  In all likelihood, the House of Representatives will remain in Republican hands after the November election; but if Republicans do not gain control of the Senate, we will see even more gridlock for the next two years.

A vote for Socialists in the November election is a vote for Obama's feckless Foreign policy and more of the same slow economic growth and job killer regulations.  In addition, seemingly, we face new Obama Scandals every week.  Beginning with Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Dirty Tricks, Veterans Affairs, NSA spying on all Americans and the latest Secret Service imbroglio, it just never seems to end.  And of course, the Obama - Holder Injustice Department, headed by Liar Attorney General Eric Holder, is doing everything they can to obstruct justice concerning all of these Scandals to play out the clock.     

So Voters, when you go to the polls in November, just remember a vote for any Socialist on the ballot is a vote for Obama, Reid and Pelosi and all of their failed Socialist Schemes and policies.  We will get more of the same if the Socialists retain control of the Senate under Dirty Harry Reid.  It is bad enough that the majority of Americans are counting the days until incompetent Obama is gone on January 20, 2017; but two more years of that crook, Dirty Harry, is just intolerable.   It would be enough to make this Blogger move to Canada to wait it out. 

Islamic Fascists - The Numbers and GITMO

There is no doubt in this Blogger's mind that most Muslims in the world worship a merciful God and do not push their children to become suicide bombers and murderers in the name of Allah.  However, since there are about 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, if just 10% were either Islamic Fascists, or supporters of Islamic Fascists, that do murder in the name of Allah, that would be 106 million Muslims.  If the number was just 1%, there would be 10,600,000 Islamic Terrorists in the world.  Whatever the number is, to say it is a small number of these fanatics involved with ISIS, Al Queda, Hamas, Hezbollah and other Terrorist groups is to deny reality.

To be sure, there are more Islamic Fascists around the world than the combined size of all Western military's and even more than by adding in the military's of China, Russia, India and Japan.   Of course, it is true that advanced military equipment, including surveillance capabilities helps level the playing field, however, acts of Terrorism do not require large armies as we learned with 9/11 and many other murderous assaults on various countries and peoples.   The fact is that Islamic Fascists are fully capable of murdering thousands of other Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and  others as we have seen for the past 30 or more years.   Just imagine if these Islamic Fascists had easy access to nuclear, or biological weapons the deaths of innocent people that they would cause.  

ISIS flies a Black flag in Syria and Iraq.   To Westerners, since the color Black is often associated with evil and death, we should recognize that they are the devil's army killing in the name of God.  For those of us that believe that there is a devil, or certainly evil in the world, how appropriate that they would use the name of God to hide their real benefactor, the devil himself.  So called "moderate" Muslims should stand up and call them what they are; agents and worshippers of the devil, a concept that does exist in the Koran.   Until we see that happening, Muslims are ignoring the evil coming out of their faith.  

While all of this is occurring, the big dope in the White House, Socialist President Pinocchio Obama is talking about closing Guantanamo Bay, GITMO, the prison off American shores, by
Executive Order, that we are using to house enemy combatant Terrorists.
  The reason the President is threatening Executive Order is that there is bi-partisan support in Congress to maintain GITMO, as is, rather than bring Terrorists into our prisons in the United States giving them all the Constitutional Rights of an American citizen.  Obama, our smart, stupid President fails to understand that we are at war with Islamic Fascists and this war could last for many years.   We need GITMO as a place to send captured Terrorists, assuming we don't kill them first, which would be preferable.  Obama has a hard time using the word Terrorist in the same speech with the word Islam.  Terrorist acts in the US are sometimes called Work Place Violence by the Obama Justice Department.  That is ridiculous when the Terrorists themselves admit to their ties to ISIS or other Terrorist groups when they kill in the name of Allah.  

To destroy our enemy, Islamic Fascists, we must first recognize the threat.  There are clearly millions of radical Muslims around the world that are Islamic Fascist, agents of the devil, by their own admonition.   Obama, perhaps because of his own Muslim roots, often refuses to accept reality.   It is what it is.  There are millions of radical Muslims that want to establish an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East and beyond that would give peoples living in these areas a choice; covert to their brand of Islam, or DIE, sometimes by beheading.  Freedom loving people cannot let that happen even if it means Boots On The Ground to destroy Islamic Fascism.  To bad Dopey Obama just doesn't get it.

Afghan Military Scraps Planes At US Taxpayer Expense

The US Government spent about $500 million supplying the Afghan military with 20 military transport aircraft manufactured in Italy.   Apparently, there were issues with maintenance, reliability and spare parts.  So, the Afghan military, without advising the US, scrapped 16 of them selling the dismembered planes for 6 cents a pound for the scrap metal.  First, why the hell did the US government buy planes manufactured in Italy, rather than supplying the Afghan military with Boeing made planes manufactured in the US, which would have been more reliable.  Italians make great pasta and ceramics; not so sure about airplanes.  And second, everybody knows that given the corruption that exists in Afghanistan that this money either went into the heroin drug trade and or the Swiss bank accounts of the military and government officials who made the sale. 

Since this was American taxpayer dollars, at a minimum, the US government should demand the monies received by the Afghan military for this pile of junk.  Further, who ever in the US government that authorized this purchase if Italian made planes and those that lost control of the airplanes, should be FIRED.   This is one of the reasons this Blogger opposes any kind of tax increases for the American people.  The waste, fraud and abuse that exists at all levels of government is legend.  Of course, $500 million in Washington DC is chump change; but it is not chump change to the American people whose hard work it represents.  The 50% of us that pay all the income taxes in the United States would be far better served if we were able to keep our hard earned money to invest, plan for retirement, or just to buy whatever we want to spur economic development and job creation. 

Instead, our hard earned money is confiscated by government bureaucrats, many of whom are crooks, feeding at the trough.   Further, government failure is often rewarded with even more money and promotions for those who steal from us.  So now, there will be a drive to replace these planes for the Afghan military that stole this money from American taxpayers.   So, what else is new.  At least this time, if the planes are replaced, perhaps the new ones will come from an American manufacturer so the jobs created might just be in the United States.   If they are going to steal from us, at least it should create American jobs that benefit the Middle Class in our country.

Former Obamanistas Now Attacking Obama

Former Obamanistas, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretaries of Defense Bill Gates and Leon Panetta have written books describing Socialist President Pinocchio Obama's feckless foreign policy and his inability to make decisions to protect the vital interests and national security of the United States.  They and the national security establishment have been telling Obama of the threats we face with ISIS and other Terrorist groups for more than two years.   They all recommended action in Syria to stop ISIS a year or two ago.   They all warned Obama about the coming mess in Iraq, a year or two ago and Obama did nothing to stop it.   Leon Panetta told Obama that Benghazi was an attack by organized Terrorists as it was happening and then Obama and other Obamanistas went on TV to tell us that this was a spontaneous demonstration caused by a video portraying Mohammad in a bad light.  This was all a big Obama LIE and everyone in the Administration knew it. 

These former Obamanistas are now trying to preserve their own reputations, which is why they are moving away from Obama, an incompetent and naive Socialist ideologue who has made a mess of our foreign policy.  Even Jimmy Carter, the worst President in modern history and an incredible buffoon himself, is now critical of Obama's foreign policy saying that Obama waiting too long to act in Syria and Iraq.  

Let's face facts.   We will need boots on the ground, as part of a coalition, to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria.   The longer we wait, the harder it will be and the more Americans will die.  Obama declaring that he will never put boots on the ground is just plain stupid.   Giving away our game plan, as Obama has done many times, shows incredible incompetence.   The world is on fire because of Obama's feckless foreign policy.  Now, even former Obamanistas are coming clean, distancing themselves from Obama because they are attempting to set the record straight to protect their own places in history.   The only problem is that the United States and the American people are in great danger because of Obama's inability to deal with the world from a position of strength.   Obama has never learned the lessons of history and our country is worse off for it.   Obama is a smart, very stupid man and we see it everyday of his Presidency.

USA - A Melting Pot Not A Salad Bowl

For most of American history, the United States was referred to as a Melting Pot, where people came from all over the world to become Americans.   While immigrants always honored their previous cultures, traditions and faiths, as was the case with this Blogger's Italian Grandparents, there was always a recognition that people came to America to be part of a new culture with new traditions.   There was never a question that English was the American national language required for integration into our society. 

About thirty five years ago, Socialists in America and the lame stream left wing media instead began referring to America as a Salad Bowl, by comparison, with people living in our country with separate and distinct cultures and languages of their own.   And, look where we are today.  The United States is now divided by class, race, ethnic origin, religion and sexual orientation like never before since the Civil War.   This notion of the Salad Bowl is destroying our nation. 

We used to be one nation indivisible under God.   Instead, we are many nations within the United States, Red and Blue States and a variety of self serving interest groups all trying to get a bigger share of the pie at the expense of others.  The Socialists preach class warfare to divide our nation to win elections.   We have grid lock in Congress because our elected representatives often hate each other and simply cannot work together to get anything done.

50% of Americans pay no income taxes as all contributing little to support our nation.  They are the Takers in society.   The other 50%, the Makers, pay all the income taxes in the United States to support the Takers.   The notion of hard work that built the United States is under attack as is our free market capitalist system, even though it has led to more prosperity for more people that at any other time, or place in world history.

It is time to cast aside the Salad Bowl concept and get back to the Melting Pot.  Immigrants who voluntarily come to America, must learn English and become Americans leaving behind prior allegiances.   Those who come to America must adhere to our distinctly American laws, traditions and culture to make us once again one nation under God.  This does not mean abandoning their faiths or traditions; but it does mean assimilating to become truly American.   If immigrants are not interested in doing that, then they should remain in their home countries.  America is a special country built on the blood, sweat and tears of millions of Immigrants that became Americans and fought for our freedom.   Most important, we are not the Old Country that people came from.  Instead, America is the new country that people came to in order to escape the Old Country.  Let's never forget that.

Veterans Affairs Heads Rolling - Many More Should Be Fired

The Veterans Affairs Department has announced that four high level VA executives have been fired over the Veterans Affairs Scandal; though one was actually a retirement.  Clearly, VA management needs to follow the trail and really clean house of all of those administrators who participated in fraudulently cooking the books, reporting better metrics than were true, to steal money in bonuses from the American taxpayer.   The VA is a huge organization.   This fraud could not have happened without the involvement of dozens, if not hundreds of people.  All of them need to be FIRED.  Some of them should be prosecuted and sent to jail.   Of course, none of this is going to happen.

Aside from stealing from the American people, Veterans died because they were not able to get the medical care they needed.  Some of these VA administrators are guilty of contributing to those deaths and should be held accountable.  Certainly, civil lawsuits are in order against not only these individuals at the VA; but the federal government for the mismanagement that resulted in these deaths.

In addition, rather than privatize the VA and giving VETS government insurance cards that would allow them to go to any doctor, or hospital, the very notion that both Socialists and Republicans voted to provide the VA with billions more in taxpayer dollars to grow the VA even bigger is ridiculous. Unfortunately, failure is always rewarded in the federal government.  In this case, it was criminal failure.   VA Hospitals should be sold off to private health care companies.  There is absolutely no reason for the government to be in the business of providing health care services directly.   Medicare works through the private system for more than 50 million Americans.   There is no reason why the Medicare Advantage Program could not work for Veterans, allowing them to go to any doctor, or hospital in the country.   It is time to get rid of Veterans Hospitals to provide Veterans the options they deserve.   Given the fraud, waste and abuse in federal government spending, odds are pretty good it will cost the American taxpayer less money and VETS will get better medical services; a win, win for all concerned. 

P.S.  A previous post regarding comments by former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, concerning Muslims living in Australia, turned out to be a hoax.   I can only wish Gillard had said what she was supposed to have said telling Muslims, as immigrants, to adapt to Australian Laws, Customs and traditions, or leave the country.   Turns out these comments did not come from her.  Too bad.  This post has been pulled off my Blog, since it apparently did not happen as described.

Obama Threatens Israel Over Settlements In East Jerusalem

Socialist President Pinocchio Obama threatened Israel related to a new apartment complex being built in East Jerusalem.  Of course, Obama always draws meaningless lines in the sand so his threats don't mean much; but the very notion that Israeli's are not supposed to develop land in their national Capital is ridiculous.  Yes, there are Arabs that live in East Jerusalem; but so what.  There are Arabs, who are Israeli citizens, that live in various parts of Israel proper.  Israel is a pluralistic, democratic society with Christians, Muslims, Jews and non believers living in close proximity to each other, no different than occurs in the United States, or many other Western countries.

This problem exists because of the so called two state solution that still lingers in some people's minds, presumably that would allow part of Jerusalem to be the Capital of Palestine.   This is never going to happen.   The two state solution should be abandoned and the sooner the better.  The West Bank should be given back to Jordan, with Amman as its Capital.   The Gaza Strip should be given back to Egypt with Cairo as its Capital.   Palestinians are Sunni Arabs, no different than Jordanians, or Egyptians.   These two countries have governed these lands in the past, so why change now. 

It is time for a different approach to peace in the Middle East.  Obviously, the two state solution has not led to peace, so why continue down this road.  We need new ideas that will bring peace and prosperity to the region.  Clearly, Palestinians have proven over decades that they cannot govern themselves.  Palestinians don't even get along with each other.  They need to be part of Jordan and Egypt as the common sense solution to bring peace to the Middle East.   Jerusalem should be an international city, as the Capital of Israel, open to all visitors living in peace with Israel.   Muslims should be able to go there, no different than Christians to visit the Holy Sites.  This is the only way we will see peace in the Middle East.   

The Obama Federal Government Is Broken

Even during the best of times, when we have a competent US President, waste, fraud and abuse, costing the American taxpayer billions of dollars every year, is rampant.  It is just the nature of big government.  When we have an incompetent US President, like Socialist President Pinocchio Obama, who believes that government is the solution, rather than the problem, we end up with a Federal Government that is completely broken.   The fact is that bigger government is never the solution and is always the problem.  With the exception of our military, most other departments, agencies and commissions of the federal government provide mediocre service to the American people for about $4 Trillion a year, a big part of which is borrowed money. 

Welfare programs promote poverty, rather than cure it.   We have spent about $22 Trillion on the War on Poverty since 1965 and the poverty rate is higher today than thirty years ago.   There are now almost 50 million people on Welfare and Food Stamps, up 20 million since Obama was first elected.   Despite spending a Trillion Dollars on Obama's SwindleUS Plans,  there are about 10 million Americans either underemployed, working part time that want full time work,  or who have just dropped out of the workforce altogether. 

The Post Office, Amtrac, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and ObamaCare are either bankrupt, or headed toward insolvency.  This is happening even though our National Debt is approaching $18 Trillion, with no end in sight.   The Justice Department, State Department, Homeland Security, IRS, Veterans Affairs Department and the Secret Service are filled with incompetent buffoons, liars, crooks and cronies all out to take care of their buddies at our expense.   The NSA is spying on all Americans in the name of National Security when they should be profiling Islamic Fascists likely to be Terrorists.  Obama Big Brother in alive and well in 2014. 

Even though we spend billions of dollars every year to pay federal government bureaucrats in the Department of Education, student achievement stinks compared to the rest of the industrialized world.  Millions of kids are trapped in inner city failing public schools because of teacher unions.  Common Core, nothing more than federal government propaganda, will make it even worse.  Ebola is now in the United States because Obamanistas refuse to restrict travel from West Africa.   Why would anyone trust government agencies to control an outbreak of this disease when government fails at so many things.

Our border with Mexico is not secure.  We have more illegal aliens, drug runners and Terrorists entering the US that ever.   The world is also on fire because of Obama's feckless foreign policy.   Most important, Americans are not safer today than when Obama first took office. 

The American people do not trust the federal government, for good reason because of so many failures, particularly since Obama was elected.   Obama has appointed incompetent crooks, liars and cronies as department, agency and commission heads.   Since Obama ignores any advice he is given anyway, thinking that he is smarter than everybody else in the room, these are all Yes men and women feeding at the trough for as long as they can to walk away with hefty pensions and contacts to get cushy jobs or speaking engagements to get rich quick.   This is the state of the Federal Government today.  It is pathetic; but typical of Socialist governments, so it should be no surprise to anyone that the Federal Government Is Broken.

Obama's Failures & Scandals On The Ballot In November

In a recent speech, Socialist President Pinocchio Obama stated that though he is not on the ballot in November, all of his policies are on the ballot.  The President said this just as Socialist Members of Congress, particularly in Red States, are doing everything they can to distance themselves from this incompetent and naive President.  But since Obama made a point of it; let's count the ways Socialists, that voted for his agenda, should be held accountable:

1.  ObamaCare -  Obama promised that you could keep your current medical insurance, doctor and hospitals and that the average family would be paying $2,500 a year less because of ObamaCare.  Sorry, none of that has happened.  Millions of people lost their health insurance and all of us on average that pay for medical insurance are paying about $2,500 more due to premium increases and higher co-pays and deductibles.

2.  Obamanistas have raised taxes and increased regulations that are both job killers.   The real unemployment rate when all our counted, the unemployed, those working part time that want full time work and those that have just dropped out of the workforce altogether is about 12%.  The Labor Participation Rate at just above 62% is the lowest since Jimmy Carter was President. 

3. Black unemployment is double White unemployment and higher than when George W. Bush was President.   So much for the benefits of electing our first Black President. 

3.  Middle Income families have lost ground earning about $4,000 a year less, in real terms, than they earned in 1989.

4.  Oil and Natural Gas Production are up; but not because of Obama's policies; rather it has happened in spite of Obamanista polices.   We could be completely energy independent if Obamanistas would just get out of the way. 

5.  The EPA continues to destroy jobs and whole industries like coal and forestry.  Manufacturing jobs continue to leave the US because of high taxes and over regulation.

6.  And then, there are all the Obama Scandals; Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Dirty Tricks, Veterans Affairs, Secret Service and the NSA spying on all Americans.  The crook and liars associated with these Scandals are being protected by Socialists in Congress and the Obama - Holder Justice Department,which is guilty of obstruction of justice. 

7. Our border with Mexico is not secure.  There are more illegal aliens, drug pushers and Terrorists coming across our border than ever, which is a serious threat to our National Security. 

7.  Finally, the world is on fire because of Obama's feckless foreign policy.  The American people are definitely not safer today than when Obama first took office. 

Obama is right.  All his Failures and Scandals will be on the ballot in November.   A vote for a Socialist Congressman, or Senator is a vote for Obama.   All Socialists, whether local, state or federal are one in the same as Obama.  Birds of a feather flock together.  Most important, a fish rots from the head down and what we have in Obama is one very stinky fish.

Ebola Coming To America & A City Near You

Unless Socialist President Pinocchio Obama restricts travel from West Africa, the same as other countries have done, Ebola is coming to America to a city near you.  The Liberian man in a Dallas hospital with Ebola lied, when he responded NO that he had not been around an Ebola infected person.  Just four days before he came to America, this man actually carried a dying Ebola infected woman to her bed.  Now, it is believed that this Liberian man has come in contact with as many as 100 people in Dallas.  And, who knows how many other people this 100 people have touched, in one way or another.  As such, it is inevitable that there will be other Ebola infected people in Dallas and perhaps from this, other cities in the US. 

Both European and other African countries have restricted travel from West Africa and Obama should do the same immediately.   We should be sending as few people as possible to West Africa to help deal with the epidemic; but then putting them in quarantine when they return to make sure they are not bringing Ebola back to the US.  Most important, until this epidemic is dealt with in West Africa, it makes no sense to allow anyone else from there into our country. 

We may come to find that the Center for Disease Control in the United States, based in Atlanta, is not really capable of dealing with this epidemic if it hits the US in a big way.   We have already seen some government failures in Dallas in dealing with the infected Liberian and the people he has come into contact with; so let's not take a chance.  Further, if this virus mutates, as is very possible and goes air born, rather than is just transmitted through bodily fluids, all bets are off.   We could see thousands of people very sick and even die in the US, if we keep allowing people to come from West Africa into the US.  Why in the hell take the chance.   Let's help stop the epidemic in West Africa before it comes to the US.  But, even that requires very careful planning and restricted travel.   It is time for a little dose of common sense, something very rare among Obamanistas.

Obama's Big Government Failures

With the exception of the US Military, 100 years of Socialist Creep has culminated in President Obama's Big Government Failures and there are many.  Socialists worship at the feet of Big Government even when we see failure after failure.   The recent exposure of Secret Service incompetence that has exposed the President and his family to danger, is the tip of a huge iceberg.   Let's start with the Obama - Holder Justice Department, which should be called the Injustice Department.  The Justice Department under Obama - Holder is in business to punish their perceived "Conservative enemies" and prevent punishment of government crooks, liars and Crony Capitalists that contribute to Socialist campaigns.   Liar Attorney General Eric Holder, held in Contempt of Congress for committing perjury, should have been FIRED by the President, not just allowed to resign.   Holder should be going to jail, not early retirement with a huge federal pension and the speaker circuit that will make him rich. 

Next, the IRS Dirty Tricks and Veterans Affairs Scandals are another huge indication of federal government failure.  In this case, corrupt political cronies and crooks, should be going to jail for the crimes they have committed, rather than getting promoted with more money and or allowed to go off into early retirement with cushy pensions.   The problem is that in Socialist mentality those that commit these crimes, in the name of intrusive big government, are heroes.   This perverse Socialist mentality pervades government. 

The Department of Education pays bureaucrats billions of dollar for accomplishing nothing.   Since the Department of Education was created by Jimmy Carter, student achievement has actually gone done.   Wouldn't it be better if this money was given to local school districts instead so that Board's of Education could use it to lower class size, reward excellent teachers and build new facilities where needed.   Instead, we send billions of taxpayer dollars to Washington that are wasted just to continue feeding the bureaucratic beast to no positive effect. 

The Environmental Protection Agency, in the name of clean air and water, is killing jobs.  Everybody wants clean air and water; but crazy regulations must be balanced by the economic impact of destroying who communities and industries.  This Social Engineering run wild without any concern for the American people.  We need cheaper, more available clean energy of all types; not more expensive energy that will lower the standard of living for all Americans.  Hello, this is just common sense.   The EPA should become the Environmental Energy Production Agency to get it right. 

Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and ObamaCare, perhaps the biggest government train wreck in American history, are all headed toward insolvency.  Amtrac and the Post Office are already bankrupt requiring huge government subsidies.   There is so much waste, fraud and abuse in government spending that is unfathomable.  Yet, Socialists always call for higher taxes and more government spending to solve problems.   As Ronald Reagan said, Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.  The majority of the American people have figured this out.  How many more Big Government Failures do we need to experience before we start to down size the federal government to no more than 17% of Gross Domestic Product.  Today, we are at 25% and growing.  The bigger the federal government gets, the poorer the American people.   It has to end if we are to have prosperity again in our nation.
