Watch the lame-duck Congress – They want to sneak amnesty into law with the DREAM Act


Obama first promised hope and change. Now his administration is trying to ram DREAM down our throats. If you think Obama’s idea of hope and change are bad, wait until you get DREAM stuffed into your gullet. Hope, change and DREAM make me want to vomit, vomit, vomit.

Closing our borders and killing the so-called “DREAM” Act are vital to controlling illegal immigration. Proponents of DREAM refer to those it will aid as “undocumented workers.” Bull-oney. They are ILLEGAL aliens – criminals – and all they deserve is jail time followed by deportation.

Illegal immigrants pose enormous financial problems for border states. They are flooding our schools and medical facilities and straining Social Security. But there’s more.

Barry, Harry and Nancy (Obama, Reid and Pelosi) want to jam the DREAM Act down our throats just like they did with government-controlled health care. DREAM stands for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors and would provide immediate amnesty for the approximately 12 million illegals currently in our nation. It will give them educational benefits along with all the other financial perks they now enjoy and literally throw our southern border open to a further invasion of Mexican (and South and Central American) nationals with no allegiance to our nation, culture or Constitution. They would, however, have every reason to be thankful for the Democrats.

Illegal alien block voting will follow. When all other issues are stripped away, most if not all those receiving amnesty, will lick the hand of the Democrats and reward them with their vote, which is de-facto vote-buying. Illegal alien votes will be bought with pseudo-citizenship, educational grants and Social Security payouts. That will put at least 4 to 5 million more votes into Democrat hands and will be used to thwart the will of the legal citizens of this country.

Please understand, the Democrat Party of today isn’t the same Democrat party our grandparents knew and loved. It is no longer the party of JFK and Teddy Roosevelt, it is instead a mish-mash conglomeration of gays, lesbians, powerful labor unions, progressives, Socialists, Communists and other assorted rabble. I know whereof I speak because I grew up the son of Democrat parents and grandparents in Michigan, a heavily unionized Democrat stronghold. I was at one point a registered Democrat, then a registered Republican (until I saw that there wasn’t a nickel’s worth of difference between the Democrats and the Republicans,) and finally, an independent.

I watched as the “progressive Democrats” destroyed Michigan and will not sit idly by and watch as the same coalition destroys America.

Finally, The DREAM Act is a vehicle, one of several vehicles actually, that are designed to create a One World Order by destroying American, Mexican and Canadian national sovereignty. It would do so by dissolving our borders and making us part of an American Union under the direct control of the United Nations and international bankers. Instead of raising their standard of living they will lower ours until we would in effect become a third-world country.

Every illegal alien is just adding one more enemy soldier to the giant Trojan Horse already in place inside our borders. They are destroying our culture and ruining what little is left of our financial ability to resist further invasion AND by their votes, perpetuate our problems.

Our lame-duck Congress, under the traitorous “leadership” of Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, will attempt to pass the DREAM Act before they finally lose control. We must ACT NOW to prevent the DREAM Act from final passage. We must close our southern border and boot every illegal alien and their “anchor babies” out of our country.

We must also consider carefully the citizenship status of Muslims, especially those who embrace jihad and Sharia law. We can’t continue to reward with citizenship those who would destroy our nation. I’m almost to the point of saying that every Muslim should be thrown out of our country. Our sovereignty and national existence should be our number one priority.

Hey Obama – pack for a looong trip


Scientists are now talking about a possible one-man, one-way trip to Mars. The intrepid space pioneer would be landed on Mars with enough food and water for survival BUT not enough fuel for a return trip.
I would like to nominate Barack Hussein Obama for this historic trip for several reasons:

1) The Seattle Times on-line edition recently published an Associated Press article in which they said that Obama himself “has already outlined a plan to go to Mars by the mid-2030s.” So, I naturally concluded that he was personally volunteering and I applaud him for this.

2) Dirk Schulze-Makuch, a Washington State University professor and Paul Davies, a physicist at Arizona State University also suggested that a second spacecraft carrying a second, what? Mars-tronaut, possibly a female could follow the lead spacecraft by a few months, prompting immediate thoughts that perhaps Nancy Pelosi could also be sent. The reasons are simple, exposure to radiation would render the space travelers impotent so we wouldn’t have to worry about Barack and Nancy procreating. Sadly, their strain would die out.

3) The costs, which would be enormous, would still probably come in cheaper than a $200,000,000 ($200-million) a day 10-day trip to India. And the Mars trip may not cost taxpayers one red cent.

4) “The astronauts would go to Mars with the intention of staying for the rest of their lives, as trailblazers of a permanent human Mars colony,” Schulze-Makuch and Davis wrote. They acknowledge the proposal is a tough sell for NASA, with its focus on safety, and suggest the private sector might be more fertile ground. “What we would need is an eccentric billionaire,” Schulze-Makuch said. “There are people who have the money to put this into reality.”

Again, I humbly nominate John Kerry and George Soros as the financial benefactors of this “progressive” use of space travel and exploration.

5) Obama and Pelosi could be like real-life space cowboys and we could even send Obama’s teleprompter and Nancy’s gavel with them. They might even take on a green coloring to match the other Martians.

6) The entire world would be entertained watching “The Messiah” and the “Wicked Witch of the West” undergo the peculiar torture devised by TSA. Not the Texas Society of Anesthesiologists but the Transportation Security Administration. TSA chief Janet (Rigid Digit) Napolitano could have the honors of bestowing a cavity search on Obama. (They say they are unarmed U.S. citizens, but one never knows. We sure don’t want them crashing their Mars voyager into the space station or blowing themselves up in mid-flight.)

7) Scientists also predict that other Mars colonists would soon follow BHO and Nasty Nancy to establish a viable, livable world. I would again, humbly nominate a series of eco-freaks beginning with Al Gore, everyone in PETA, the entire Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Greenpeace and every other environmental whacko.

8) The intrepid space explorers and Martian colonizers wouldn’t have to worry about global warming for, oh let’s say, 10 million years or so as the Martian atmosphere slowly changes from primarily carbon dioxide to oxygen.. Currently, Martian daytime summer temps are about 14 degrees for a high to -105 for a nighttime low. So, Al Gore will have thousands of years before he has to worry about global warming.

9) PETA would be happy because there are no animals to kill. Greenpeace would be happy because there will be no whales until oceans can be established and populated. And all the other whackos will be happy because there are no trees to cut down.

I say, “mission accomplished.” Our planet will be saved from their ridiculous Socialist planning, and they have an entirely new planet to poison and destroy – excuse me – enlighten.

ARMY MEDAL OF HONOR


“They all say that,” I said to my wife.

I was referring to Salvatore A. Giunta’s comment during his Medal of Honor ceremony, that he only did what any one of his fellow soldiers would do in the same situation if roles were reversed.

That obviously isn’t true. If it were, there would be a lot more medals handed out. And in Giunta’s case, the men in his unit unanimously agreed that he should receive the honor.
As a result, an entire nation was thrilled Tuesday, well, at least I was thrilled, to see Giunta, a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army, receive the Congressional Medal of Honor in a ceremony at the White House. He was the first living recipient in about 40 years. Most CMOH winners receive the award posthumously.

I thought it appropriate to honor Giunta and a few of the other recipients – one from each branch of the military in honor of the occasion.

Giunta, (born January 21, 1955) was cited for saving members of his squad on October 25th, 2007 during the war in Afghanistan.
 
In 2007 Giunta was stationed at Firebase Vegas in the Korangal valley and in late October his company launched a six-day mission known as Rock Avalanche. On October 23 Taliban fighters killed a respected Staff Sergeant, Larry Rougle, and wounded another two infantrymen when Rougle’s position on “Honcho Hill” was overrun. On October 25, company commander Captain Dan Kearney sent two of his platoons back into the area on a mission to recover the US equipment that had been captured when Rougle was killed.

Giunta and his eight-man squad were moving along a steep ridgeline of Honcho Hill when at least a dozen insurgents mounted an L-shaped ambush at such close range that close air support could not be provided. Sergeant Joshua Brennan, who was walking point, suffered at least 6 gunshot wounds. Giunta, then a specialist, was the fourth soldier back and squad leader Erick Gallardo third. Gallardo attempted to sprint forward but encountered heavy RPG and small arms fire. While moving back to cover, he was struck in the helmet and fell. Giunta saw Gallardo go down and ran to him, but after helping the sergeant back to cover Giunta took a bullet to the chest and another bullet destroyed a weapon slung over his back. The platoon commander, Lt Brad Winn, radioed Kearney to advise him that he had five men down (the squad’s medic, Spec. Hugo Mendoza, was fatally wounded at the beginning of the ambush). Kearney ordered Second Platoon to assist Winn’s platoon, but Second Platoon had to cross a river to do so.

Both Giunta and Gallardo had been saved by their body armor, however, and resumed their advance along with two others, firing and throwing hand grenades, until they reached Specialist Franklin Eckrode. Eckrode had been shot twice in the leg and was attempting to un-jam his M249 machine gun. While Gallardo, who later received a Silver Star for his actions, dressed Eckrode’s wounds, Giunta continued to advance. Seeing three Taliban fighters, two of whom were attempting to carry away Brennan, Giunta pursued them over exposed ground firing his M4 Carbine, killing one (who was known as Mohammad Tali and considered a high-value target. After reaching Brennan, Giunta pulled him to cover and provided aid.

“I ran through fire to see what was going on with [Brennan] and maybe we could hide behind the same rock and shoot together … He was still conscious. He was breathing. He was asking for morphine.” I said, “You’ll get out and tell your hero stories, and he was like,” ‘I will, I will.’”Brennan did not survive surgery. According to his father, Michael Brennan, “not only did [Giunta] save [my son] Josh … He really saved half of the platoon.”
Giunta’s Medal Of Honor Citation said he received the award for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty…

NAVY MEDAL OF HONOR

 Robert R. Ingram, U.S. Navy, received the Medal Of Honor and survived his combat experiences while serving in Vietnam.

When talking about courage in the face of almost certain death, Ingram personifies the phrase, above and beyond.

While serving as Corpsman with Company C, First Battalion, Seventh Marines against elements of a North Vietnam Aggressor (NVA) battalion in Quang Ngai Province Republic of Vietnam on 28 March 1966. Petty Officer Ingram was with the point platoon when the Marines came under fire from 100 North Vietnamese regulars. His citation says the village tree line literally exploded with the intense enemy automatic rifle fire. With the platoon decimated and oblivious to enemy fire, Ingram crawled through the bullet-splattered terrain to reach a fallen Marine. He received his first wound, but rendered first-aid to the marine before answering another call for “corpsman.” He collected ammunition from the dead and gave aid to the wounded and was again wounded – twice. Realizing the third wound was life-threatening, he nevertheless continued rendering life-saving aid to other wounded Marines until he reached his platoon. While dressing the head wound of another corpsman, he received his fourth wound.

 

“Petty Officer Ingram pushed, pulled, cajoled, and doctored his Marines. Enduring the pain from his many wounds and disregarding the probability of his demise, Petty Officer Ingram’s intrepid actions saved many lives that day. By his indomitable fighting spirit, daring initiative, and unfaltering dedication to duty, Petty Officer Ingram reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”

Robert D. Maxwell, U.S. Army, received the Medal Of Honor and survived his combat experiences while serving in France during World War II. 

  

His citation reads in full:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on 7 September 1944, near Besancon, France. Technician 5th Grade Maxwell and 3 other soldiers, armed only with .45 caliber automatic pistols, defended the battalion observation post against an overwhelming onslaught by enemy infantrymen in approximately platoon strength, supported by 20mm. flak and machinegun fire, who had infiltrated through the battalion’s forward companies and were attacking the observation post with machinegun, machine pistol, and grenade fire at ranges as close as 10 yards. Despite a hail of fire from automatic weapons and grenade launchers, Technician 5th Grade Maxwell aggressively fought off advancing enemy elements and, by his calmness, tenacity, and fortitude, inspired his fellows to continue the unequal struggle. When an enemy hand grenade was thrown in the midst of his squad, Technician 5th Grade Maxwell unhesitatingly hurled himself squarely upon it, using his blanket and his unprotected body to absorb the full force of the explosion. This act of instantaneous heroism permanently maimed Technician 5th Grade Maxwell, but saved the lives of his comrades in arms and facilitated maintenance of vital military communications during the temporary withdrawal of the battalion’s forward headquarters.
 
 

 
Don’t let his boyish smile fool you. For the epitome of a fighting Marine, look no further than Sgt. Richard A. Pittman. He received the Medal of Honor for his heroism and dedication to duty in Vietnam.

While conducting a combat operation with Company 1 along a narrow jungle trail, the unit came under extremely heavy fire from a numerically superior enemy force. With casualties mounting, Pittman heard calls from his fellow marines for more firepower. Pittman ditched his rifle, grabbed a machine gun and several belts of ammunition, left the relative safety of his platoon and rushed forward to aid his companions.

He advanced through enemy small arms fire at point blank range, returning fire he silenced the enemy guns. While continuing his advance he was attacked by 2 automatic weapons which he destroyed.
Learning there were wounded marines 50 yards further along the trail, he again braved a “withering hail” of mortar and small-arms fire to reach the position where the leading marines had fallen. He was suddenly confronted with a bold frontal attack by 30 to 40 enemy.

With no regard for his personal safety, he calmly established a position and raked the enemy with devastating machinegun fire until his weapon was rendered useless. He seized an enemy submachine gun and together with a pistol obtained from a fallen marine, he continued to attack until the enemy retreated. After hurling a final grenade at the retreating enemy, he rejoined his unit.

His Medal of Honor citation says in part: “Sgt. Pittman’s daring initiative, bold fighting spirit and selfless devotion to duty inflicted casualties, disrupted the enemy attack and saved the lives of many of his wounded comrades. His personal valor at grave risk to himself reflects the highest credit upon himself, the Marine Corps, and the U.S. Naval Service.”

U.S.A.F. MEDAL OF HONOR

  
U.S. Air Force Capt. Steven L. Bennett was the pilot of a light aircraft flying an artillery adjustment mission along a heavily defended segment of enemy territory.

This hero could have gone home once his mission was complete, but on the way he spotted a concentration of enemy troops massing for an attack on a friendly unit. Capt. Bennett requested tactical air support but was advised that none was available. He also requested artillery support but this too was denied due to the close proximity of friendly troops to the target.

Instead of going home, Capt. Bennett was determined to aid the endangered unit and elected to strafe the hostile positions. After four such passes, the enemy force began to retreat but Capt. Bennett continued the attack. As he completed his fifth strafing pass, his aircraft was struck by a surface-to-air missile, which severely damaged the left engine and the left main landing gear.

As fire spread in the left engine, Capt. Bennett realized that recovery at a friendly airfield was impossible. He instructed his observer to prepare for an ejection, but was informed by the observer that his parachute had been shredded by the force of the impacting missile.

Although Capt. Bennett had a good parachute, he knew that if he ejected, the observer would have no chance of survival. With complete disregard for his own life, Capt. Bennett elected to ditch the aircraft into the Gulf of Tonkin, even though he realized that a pilot of this type aircraft had never survived a ditching.

The crash landing on the water caused the aircraft to cartwheel, severely damaging the cockpit. The observer escaped and was rescued by friendly forces. Capt. Bennett died in the crash.

His Medal of Honor citation reads in part: “Capt. Bennett’s unparalleled concern for his companion, extraordinary heroism and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty, at the cost of his life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself and the U.S. Air Force.”

ALWAYS REMEMBER: It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus [or community] organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

Should Obama be impeached and removed from office?

More and more people are openly talking about repealing the noxious health-care law often referred to as Obamacare. The recent election was a referendum on the president’s policies, which are overwhelming rejected by the American people. An October 23 Rasmussen poll showed 53 percent of likely voters want Obamacare repealed – not amended, not modified, but repealed outright, versus 43 percent who support it.

Less reported but being seriously talked about in some circles is the impeachment and removal from office of the chief proponent of Obamacare – Barack Hussein Obama.

My personal opinion is that until Obama PROVES he is a “natural born” citizen his nationality, and therefore his loyalty and allegiances are suspect and therefore, he is a candidate for impeachment. But hey, my opinion is nothing in the grand scheme of things. Most of this article, therefore, consists of quotes and comments from those whose opinions carry much more weight and are therefore worthy of serious consideration.



Obama – SuperMuslim?


Even non-conservatives are certain some action against Obama is coming. Most, if not all of them, believe the motivating factor for criticism of Obama is race.

“Hear me now and believe me later: If Republicans win and maintain control of the House of Representatives, they are going to impeach President Obama. They won’t do it right away. And they won’t succeed in removing Obama. (You need 67 Senate votes.) But if Obama wins a second term, the House will vote to impeach him before he leaves office,” Jonathat Chait of The New Republic wrote. “They’ll buy themselves a race war. People aren’t going to take it lying down, because they’ll know it’s because Obama’s skin tone isn’t to their taste, not because of high crimes and misdemeanors.”

A noted retired military leader, U.S. Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, takes issue with the comment that Obama is not guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. But instead of calling for impeachment, Vallely is urging Obama to resign.

Vallely, who served in Vietnam and retired in 1991 from the U.S. Army as deputy commanding general for the Pacific, said, “We now must call for the immediate resignation of Barry Soetoro (aka President Barack Hussein Obama) … based on incompetence, deceit, fraud, corruption, dishonesty and violation of the U.S. oath of office and the Constitution.”

We can wait no longer for a traditional change of power and new government, he warned.

“‘We the People have had enough. Enough is enough. The Obama White House and identifiable members of Congress are now on a progressive-socialist, treasonous death march and are bankrupting and weakening the country. We have watched them violate their sacred oath of office. We the People cannot wait for and solely rely on the next round of elections in November of this year. It is now and each day that these public servants must put the citizen’s interests above self-interest by resigning immediately,” Vallely said.

Washington Times columnist Jeffrey T. Kuhner, who also is president of the Edmund Burke Institute, wrote: “President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.”  Kuhner continued, “He is slowly – piece by painful piece – erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there – yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela’s leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above – one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are balkanizing the country. It’s time for him to go.”

Mary Beth Brown, president of the Western Center for Journalism said, “The Obama presidency is a disease. … Article 2, Section 4 (the impeachment clause of the Constitution) is the cure. And it’s Obama’s hatred of America that makes it absolutely imperative that we take action now.

“Barack Hussein Obama is not some do-gooder that has had his plans go astray,” Brown added. “He is not a person of good will just trying his best to make America go the right direction. He is not. Barack Hussein Obama is a liar that absolutely knows what he’s doing to the United States of America. He has a plan. He has an agenda. This man knows exactly where he’s taking us.”

“Barack Obama is a very dangerous man,” Brown said. “Over the last two years, we have been watching the slow progression of what I call a bloodless coup.”

Columnist Jeffrey T. Kuhner, who also is president of the Edmund Burke Institute, wrote: “President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.”

Like George W. Bush, his daddy George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Obama IS NOT stupid. All three and dozens of our elected representatives, are proponents and supporters of the New World Order. Their loyalties lie with the international bankers, giant mega-corporations and the goals and agenda of the United Nations. They hate the Constitution and consider We The People to be useless eaters. Pay close attention to this comment G.W. Bush made to an aide who was concerned that certain provisions in the PATRIOT ACT were unconstitutional: “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face . . . It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

Don’t you dare compromise!!

I seriously doubt that any members of the newly-elected class of Representatives or Senators will ever read this, but if they would the messages I would deliver are: Don’t you dare compromise – play hardball with the Democrat/Socialists you encounter in the House and Senate. They played hardball with you by ramming Obamacare through not only without giving your predecessors a voice but not even giving them the chance to read the Bill.

The liberal media are already trying to persuade and bully our newly elected representatives to “cooperate” with Obama. Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos said, “But (conservatives) have to make a chocice as well. Do they choose to cooperate with President Obama or stand firm on principle, which is going to guarantee gridlock?” I say, bring on the gridlock. Remember, in Democratic and media’s world-view, compromise and cooperation are nothing less than complete surrender. So, don’t compromise and don’t surrender. We didn’t send you to Washington to compromise, we sent you there to re-claim our country.

The House has the power to control the nation’s purse-strings. De-fund the Health Care Law; de-fund the EPA and take away the power of the bureaucracy to partially fund themselves by charging and collecting fines and fees; de-fund the Department of Education – return control of our children’s education to the states and local boards and de-fund every single “Czar” appointed by Obama. The list goes on but we can’t expect to undo in one two- year span what has taken the Socialists more than 50 years to construct.

Remember your campaign promises to address the issue of jobs. Remember the fact that government doesn’t create jobs. All the government can do is create a climate favorable to job creation but it is up to entrepreneurs and small business owners to create the wealth to create jobs. Burdensome taxes skim that wealth and impede, or even stop, the creation of jobs. Not only should all of the Bush tax cuts remain, they should be made even deeper for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

We are trusting you to toss out Obama’s socialist plans and replace them with tried and true American values – free enterprise, hard work, low taxes and an achievable American dream.

Ask yourselves: Are we better off now than we were $13 trillion dollars ago? In other words, GET US OUT OF DEBT! Shrink the size of government and above all – quit borrowing and spending.
