WHAT’S UP WITH THE CZARS?




His Highness, The “One”, the Czar of Czars – Komrade Barack HUSSEIN Obama

 
Obama has appointed approximately 44 “czars.” Some czars are confirmed by congress while others are literally snuck into power in the dead of night away from public knowledge and scrutiny until after the fact.

Some lawmakers and outside experts fear that Obama is setting up a system that is outside of congressional control and could lead to dictatorial powers.

Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.) became concerned enough to send a cautionary letter to Obama. At times, he said, past White House staffers have assumed duties that should be the responsibility of officials cleared through the Senate confirmation process. He cited President Bush’s naming of homeland security czar Tom Ridge as an example.

“They rarely testify before congressional committees and often shield the information and decision-making process behind the assertion of executive privilege,” Byrd wrote of past czars and White House staffers in similar positions. At times, he said, one outcome has been to “inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce accountability.”

“The rapid and easy accumulation of power by White House staff can threaten the constitutional system of checks and balances,” Byrd said.

These czars are “Political Officers.” In the old Soviet Union, they were called Commissars.

To quote Sen. Byrd, “As presidential assistants and advisers, these White House staffers are not accountable for their actions to the Congress, to cabinet officials, or to virtually anyone but the president. They rarely testify before congressional committees, and often shield the information and decision-making process behind the assertion of executive privilege. In too many instances, White House staff have been allowed to inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce accountability.”

These czars are being paid without congressional authorization, without having testified before any legislative committee, without having been confirmed by anyone, and are functioning like a fourth (illegal) arm of government.

The appointments of these “czars” changes the fundamental structure of the Executive Branch into a “matrix” structure. The czars have political power across all of the departments within the Executive Branch.

They speak for Obama and their function is to ensure compliance with Obama’s policies within the Executive Branch.

The American People don’t know who most of these czars are. They’ve had no background checks. There is no Congressional oversight over the czars, unlike a Cabinet position. They are appointed by Obama and are extraordinarily powerful, simply because they take their direction from and report directly to Obama.

The Executive Branch of government is organized hierarchically, top-down, by Departments (Treasury, Defense, etc.). Each department functions under the direction of an executive, referred to as a “Secretary,” who is confirmed by the Senate.

We don’t know how much money they make. We don’t know how many tax-payer dollars they oversee. We don’t know how large their staffs are. We don’t know how much power they wield.

Where are the checks and balances?


List of current czars and a brief bio.

Czar Nicholas II – A real Czar

The person who may be responsible for more food-related illness and death than anyone in history has just been made the US food safety czar. This man is Michael Taylor and this is no joke.

Read more about this extremely dangerous man HERE.

Richard Holbrook – Afghanistan Czar – Ultra liberal, anti-gun former governor of New Mexico — pro Abortion and legal drug use. Deceased Dec. 13, 2010.


Jeffrey Crowley – AIDS Czar – Open homosexual. Gay Rights activist. Believes in gay marriage and special status, including free health care for gays.

Hannah Rosenthal – Anti-Semitism Czar – Blames Israel for anti-Semitism.

Serves on the board of J Street, a lobby group that is mostly led by left-leaning Israelis and that receives funds from Arab and Muslim Americans. J Street supports talks with Hamas, a terrorist group whose charter seeks the destruction of Israel. The group opposes sanctions against Iran and is harshly critical of Israeli offensive anti-terror military actions.

Mark Lloyd – Diversity Czar for the FCC – “It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies,” Lloyd once said. “[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance.”

Lloyd worked for George Soros, the foreign billionaire who funds anti-America groups. He seems to be enamored with dictators and has even publicly praised Venezuelan Communist dictator Hugo Chavez’s “incredible…democratic revolution.” He also wants to use the Fairness Doctrine to “balance” talk radio and believes there are too many white people in the media. He has written that unless there are “more people of color, gays and other people…we will not change the problem.” One of his solutions to “balance” the media is to fine conservative radio stations up to $250 million and give the proceeds to National Public Radio. Get ready for censorship like America has never seen before.

Lynn Rosenthal – Domestic Violence Czar – Director of the National Network to End Domestic Violence. Vicious anti-male feminist. Supported male castration.

Gil Kerlikowske – Drug Czar – Kerlikowske has lobbied for bans on sport-utility rifles, backed legislation to close the mythical “gun show loophole” with an unsubstantiated theory that private sales put guns in the hands of criminals. Believes no American should own a firearm.

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said, “During his eight-year tenure as Seattle’s police chief, Gil Kerlikowske has established himself as a devoted lobbyist for every restrictive gun law proposal,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb.

“Kerlikowske’s reported appointment to a post with the Obama administration reinforces the genuine concerns of American gun owners that the new president is not their friend,” he observed. “The new president has surrounded himself with people who have long anti-gun rights track records, including Joe Biden, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Rahm Emanuel.”

Paul Volker – Economics Czar – Head of Federal Reserve under Jimmy Carter when US economy nearly failed. Obama appointed head of the Economic Recovery Advisory Board which engineered the Obama economic disaster to US economy. Member of anti-business, Progressive Policy organization.

Van Jones – Environment Czar – RESIGNED UNDER PUBLIC PRESSURE. Obama appointed Van Jones “Green” Czar. Jones was as an admitted radical communist and black nationalist leader.

Jones, president and founder of Green For All, a nonprofit organization that advocates for building a so-called inclusive green economy, has been tapped to serve as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. According to the White House blog, Jones’ duties will include helping to craft job-generating climate policy and ensuring equal opportunity in the administration’s energy proposals.

While in jail in San Francisco in 1992, Jones said, “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.” In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,” he said. “By August, I was a communist.”

Jones, formerly a self-described “rowdy black nationalist,” boasted in a 2005 interview that his environmental activism was a means to fight for racial and class “justice.”

Chai R. Feldblum – Equal Opportunity Czar – A law professor nominated by Obama to become a commissioner for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was a signatory to a radical 2006 manifesto which endorsed polygamous households and argued traditional marriage should not be privileged “above all others.” The manifesto is titled: “Beyond Same-Sex Marriage: A New Strategic Vision for All Our Families & Relationships.”

The manifesto’s signatories said they proposed a “new vision” for governmental and private recognition of “diverse kinds” of partnerships, households and families. They said they hoped to “move beyond the narrow confines of marriage politics” in the U.S.

Describing various kinds of households as no less socially, economically, and spiritually worthy than other relationships, the Beyond Marriage manifesto listed “committed, loving households in which there is more than one conjugal partner.” Same-sex marriage, the manifesto said, should be “just one option on a menu of choices that people have about the way they construct their lives.” The manifesto listed as one of its principles “freedom from a narrow definition of our sexual lives and gender choices, identities, and expression.”

It also charged that the political right enforces “narrow, heterosexist definitions of marriage.”

Julius Genachowski – FCC Czar – He thinks you’re an idiot. After famously calling for broadly expanded FCC powers to mandate “transparency” and “neutrality” on the Internet, and having that plan rejected by a growing, bipartisan coalition, he now denies he wants to regulate the Internet.

Meanwhile he also claims the FCC is trying to “win the case” against Comcast, who has sued to get a federal court to overturn the FCC’s claimed authority to regulate Internet activity. But we’re supposed to believe he doesn’t want to regulate the Internet. Right. The Wall Street Journal says that the FCC “took a beating” during an appeals court hearing on the case. A decision against the FCC could be crippling of Genachowski’s plans, but unfortunately on that front there’s nothing we activists can do but watch, and wait.

Sam Kass – Food Czar – The White House has named the Obama’s personal Chicago cook as “Senior Policy Adviser for Healthy Food Initiatives.” Michelle Obama made Kass a “Food Initiative Coordinator” for her new healthy nutrition program which is supposed to eliminate childhood obesity within a generation, especially in the nation’s inner cities. The First Lady claims that childhood obesity is a threat to national security and a crisis equivalent to AIDS and youth violence.

Because it’s such a dire situation, she has convinced her husband’s administration to spend $400 million a year to bring “healthy foods” to low-income neighborhoods and $10 billion to revise a decades-old federal measure that already feeds tens of millions of poor children at school for free. The First Lady refers to her cook as a “partner in crime” and says it’s “just pretty powerful” to see what started out as talk in her South Side Chicago kitchen turn into a major initiative that “hopefully will change the way we think as a country.”

Makes you wonder what Kass, who also doubles as a White House chef, has been putting in the Obama’s food all these years. Incidentally, the “most transparent administration” in history doesn’t want Americans to know how much the famous family cook earns. Although he’s an important administration wonk, Kass’s salary is excluded in the Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff because he’s considered “residence staff” and those salaries don’t need to be disclosed.

Daniel Fried – Guantanamo Czar – Rights activist for foreign terrorists. Believes America has caused the terrorism in the world.

Gary Samore – Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Czar – Former (or so he says) U.S. Communist. Wants U.S. to destroy all WMD unilaterally as a show of good faith. Has no other policy.

Nancy-Ann DeParle – Health Czar – Former head of Medicare/Medicaid. Strong health care rationing proponent.

Vivek Kundra – Information Czar – Born in New Delhi, India. Controls all public information, including labels and news releases. Has the authority to monitor all private Internet emails.

Dennis Blair – Intelligence Czar – Retired Navy admiral. Stopped US guided missile program as “provocative.” Chair of ultra-liberal Council on Foreign Relations, which blames American organizations for regional wars.

Ashton Carter – Weapons Czar – Leftist. Wants all private weapons in US confiscated and destroyed. Supports UN ban on firearms ownership in America. No Other policy.

Adolfo Carrion Jr. – Urban Affairs Czar – Puerto Rican, anti-American activist and leftist group member in Latin America. Millionaire Slum Lord of the Bronx, NY. Owns many lavish homes and condos which he got from sweetheart deals with labor unions. Wants higher taxes to pay for minority housing and health care.

John Brennan – Terrorism Czar – Obama’s top terrorism and intelligence adviser, John O. Brennan, headed a firm that was cited in March, 2008, for breaching sensitive files in the State Department’s passport office, according to a State Department Inspector General’s report released this past July.

Herb Allison – TARP Czar – Fannie Mae CEO responsible for the US recession by using real estate mortgages to back up the US stock market. Caused millions of people to lose their life savings.

J. Scott Gration – Sudan Czar – Native of Democratic Republic of Congo. Believes US does little to help Third World countries. Council of Foreign Relations. Asking for higher US taxes to support United Nations.

Earl Devaney – Stimulus Czar – Spent career trying to take guns away from American citizens. Believes in Open Borders with Mexico. Author of statement blaming U.S. gun stores for drug war in Mexico.

John P. Holdren – Science Czar – Sean Hannity (FOXNews Commentator) televised a segment and pointed out Holdren has been quoted as calling the United States the “meanest of wealthy countries.” He has also, according to Hannity, “left the door open” to prosecuting “global warming deniers.”

Holdren’s radicalism dates back to the late 1960s. In 1969 Holdren wrote that it was imperative “to convince society and its leaders that there is no alternative but the cessation of our irresponsible, all-demanding, and all-consuming population growth.” That same year, he and (the now largely discredited) professor of population studies Paul Ehrlich jointly predicted: “If … population control measures are not initiated immediately and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come.”

In 1971 Holdren and Ehrlich warned that “some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century.” Viewing capitalism as an economic system that is inherently harmful to the natural environment, Holdren and Ehrlich in 1973 called for “a massive campaign … to de-develop the United States” and other Western nations in order to conserve energy and facilitate growth in underdeveloped countries.

Kevin Jennings – Safe Schools Czar – The Washington Times reports that a teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an “older man.” At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is Obama’s “Safe School Czar.”

Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, instead he not only failed to do what the law required, but actually encouraged the relationship. According to Mr. Jennings’ own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the “older man” in a “bus station bathroom” and was taken to the older man’s home that night. When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape “unethical.” Mr. Jennings’ defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was aware the student had sex with the older man.

However, the new audio contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) , an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure “to use a condom” when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings’ own description in his 1994 book, “One Teacher in 10.” In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student’s concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old “left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated.”

Don’t forget, this is a White House appointee we’re talking about. Mr. Obama should make clear what his standards are for public servants serving at his pleasure. Encouraging and covering up man-boy sexual activity are serious offenses. The White House should force Mr. Jennings to come clean.

Mr. Jennings has made extremely radical statements promoting homosexuality in schools and about his utter contempt for religion that render him unsuitable for a prestigious White House appointment. His job in the Obama administration is to ensure student safety, and this scandal directly calls into question his ability to perform that job. Mr. Jennings and Obama administration officials refuse to answer any questions about this newly discovered evidence. A lot of Americans want answers about this guy and how he was approved for a job in the White House.

It gets worse. Jennings was the founder of the GLSEN and co-chair of the lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) fundraising for Barack Obama. As the founder and Executive Director of GLSEN, Jennings defended GLSEN during the notorious fistgate episode. Obama’s “Safe School Czar” is so named because he is a proponent of “safe” sex with children. Commies, Marxists, gun grabbers, perverts, rapists, and tax-cheats — the Obama Administration — our government.

Cass Sunstein – Regulatory Czar – Cass Sunstein is a radical animal rights activist. Sunstein has made no secret of his devotion to the cause of establishing legal “rights” for livestock, wildlife, and pets. He has straight out said, “We ought to ban hunting.”

Sunstein, has also advocated a policy under which the government would “presume” someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken. Under such a policy, hospitals would harvest organs from people who never gave permission for this to be done.

Kenneth Feinberg – Pay Czar – Chief of Staff to Ted Kennedy. Lawyer, who got rich off the 911 victims payoffs. Former Senator from Maine.

George Mitchell – Mideast Czar – Left wing radical. Has said Israel should be split up into 2 or 3 smaller more manageable plots. Anti-nuclear, anti-gun, & pro homosexual. yet another socialist.

Dr. Donald Berwick – MEDICARE Czar – This one was nominated by Obama to be Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services. Dr. Berwick currently serves as President and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and is a professor at Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health.

Berwick is also a partisan of state run health care, an advocate of government re-distribution of wealth and an ardent socialist.

Dawn Johnson – Legal Czar – Obama’s new head of the Office of Legal Counsel in the Justice Department, Dawn Johnsen, called the legal reasoning which gave the president broad powers to authorize “rough” interrogation of terrorists “shockingly flawed… bogus… outlandish.” She said it allowed “horrific acts” and demanded to know “Where is the outrage? The public outcry?” This is the person who will decide how to interrogate terrorists. If she errs on the side of weakening methods of questioning, there’s no chance her boss, Eric Holder the new Attorney General, will reverse her. He approved of the Clinton/Reno “wall” preventing intelligence from finding out what criminal investigators had found out and took the lead in pardoning the FALN terrorists.

What is Obama thinking? How could he weaken so dramatically our protections against terrorism? Doesn’t he realize that without warrantless FISA wiretaps we could never have uncovered the plot to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge (how could we have gotten a warrant for conversations about the bridge when we didn’t yet know that al Qaeda had it in its sights?) Has he forgotten that we only found the name of the operative who was tasked with destroying the bridge because we subjected Kahlid Mohammed, the mastermind of 9-11, to “rough” interrogation techniques? Does he really mean to leave us vulnerable to terrorist attacks?

Yes he does.

Susan P. Crawford – Internet Czar – WorldNetDaily is reporting that Obama’s Internet czar, Susan P. Crawford, is linked to a Marxist-run liberal media think tank, Free Press, that advocates government intervention in the Internet.

She was chosen to head up the Obama transition’s Federal Communications Commission Review team. After the inauguration, Obama named her Special Assistant to the President for Science, Technology, and Innovation policy — or Internet czar. Wired magazine calls Crawford “the most powerful geek close to the president,” and notes that prior to her work for the administration, she was a “prolific” writer on “net neutrality.”

She spoke at a May 14, 2009, “Changing Media” Free Press summit in Washington. Crawford’s “One Web Day” project, which seeks to broaden the public’s awareness of Internet and Web issues, lists the radical ACORN as one of its “participating organizations.” Free Press” is listed as another. The founder of Free Press, Robert W. McChesney, is a professor at the University of Illinois and former editor of the Marxist journal Monthly Review. In February 2009, McChesney, an avowed Marxist, urged that capitalism be dismantled.

“In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick-by-brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles,'” wrote McChesney in a column. The board of Free Press has included a slew of radicals, such as Obama’s former “green jobs” czar Van Jones, who resigned after it was exposed he founded a communist organization. Meanwhile, Crawford and Kevin Werbach, who co-directed the Obama transition team’s Federal Communications Commission Review team, are also advisory board members at Public Knowledge, a George Soros-funded public interest group.

Todd Stern – International Climate Czar – Anti-business former White House Chief of Staff. Strong supporter of the Kyoto Accord. Pushing hard for Cap and Trade Bill. Blames US business for Global warming. Stern, a veteran of the Clinton administration, was the U.S. negotiator at the Kyoto conference in 1997 (which called for dramatic climate change regulations based on bogus assumptions). Had the treaty been implemented, it would have plunged the world into economic chaos.

Stern has made it clear that he thinks international agencies, such as the United Nations, should take the lead on forcing climate change down the throats of national governments. Stern has even gone as far as to propose that world powers form an “E8” group, who would meet yearly and dictate environmental policy to the rest of the world. What about national sovereignty? Clearly, Stern feels that’s an outdated concept.

Stern is also the idiot behind the Cap and Trade proposal.

Cameron Davis – Great Lakes Czar – Chicago radical anti business environmentalist. Blames George Bush for poisoning the water that minorities have to drink. No experience or training in water management. Former ACORN Board member.

Joshua Dubois – Faith-based Czar – Political black activist. Degree in Black Nationalism. Anti gun ownership lobbyist.

Carol M. Browner – Energy/Environment Czar – When Obama appointed Carol Browner to be his “energy czar” the conservative blogosphere was buzzing about her being a member of Socialist International, the worldwide organization of social democratic, socialist and labor parties. At the time, she was fourth on the website’s list of members in the “Commission for a Sustainable World Society” which calls for “global governance” and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.

She is no longer on the list of members, although it still is cached by Google. Picked up the Environment title when Van Jones quit.

Ed Montgomery – Auto Recovery Czar – Communist: W.E.B. duBois club member. Black radical anti-business activist. Affirmative Action and Job Preference for blacks. University of Maryland Business School Dean teaches that US business has caused world poverty. ACORN board member.

Alan Bersin – Border Czar – Believes U.S. policy has caused Mid East wars. Obama apologist to the world. Anti-gun and pro-abortion.



David J. Hayne Sr., California Water Czar – Fellow of radical environmentalist group, Progress Policy. No training or experience in water management.

Ron Bloom – former Car Czar now Manufacturing Czar – Former head, United Auto Workers. Anti business & anti nuclear. Has worked hard to force US auto makers out of business. Sits on the Board of Chrysler which is now Auto Union owned.

Dennis Ross – Central Region Czar – Former failed superintendent of San Diego Schools. Ultra-Liberal friend of Hilary Clinton. Served as border czar under Janet Reno to keep borders open to illegals.

Melissa Hathaway – Cyberspace Czar – RESIGNED.

OBAMA IS GIVING AMERICA BACK TO THE INDIANS

Obama wants to give partial U.S. sovereignty and part of our land back to native Americans.

Yep, you read that right.

In order to please his puppet-masters at the United Nations, Obama, with the help of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is getting ready to cede more than 650 million acres of land to the Indians, including parts of Long Island. He will probably do it by executive order, thus bypassing Congress.

Who does Obama think he is anyway? He wasn’t content letting millions of illegal aliens enter our country through our southern border. He wasn’t content spending $200 million a day on he and Michelle’s trip to India. He wasn’t content running up more debt in one year than all the presidents in history spent – combined. He wasn’t content ruining the best health care system in the world.

So, because of his communist, socialist, progressive hatred for America, he is GIVING OUR country away along with part of our national sovereignty.

World Net Daily reported that “President Obama is voicing support for a U.N. resolution that could accomplish something as radical as relinquishing some U.S. sovereignty and opening a path for the return of ancient tribal lands to American Indians, including even parts of Manhattan.”

WND continued: “In recent remarks at the White House during a ‘tribal nations conference,’ Obama endorsed the ‘United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People,’ which includes a sweeping declaration that ‘indigenous peoples have a right to lands and resources they traditionally occupied or otherwise used’ but that later were acquired by occupying forces.

How much more of Obama can our nation take? How much more of his madness can we take?  Congress MUST act at once to shut this traitor down. IMPEACH him and send his sorry butt back to Kenya. We must nullify the treaty that makes us part of the United Nations – and we must do it now!

Oh, by the way, WHERE IS THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?

A PLOT AGAINST AMERICA – by a former presidential advisor

Edward Mandell House had this to say in a private meeting with President Woodrow Wilson:

“[Very] soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will effect our security as a chargeback for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer being unable to work and earn a living. They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions.

“Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud which we will call ‘Social Insurance.’

“Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and, we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.”

Washington Examiner Editorial: Closing the books on the worst Congress

I don’t often speak out on current events, even though I am fascinated by the shenanigans in Washington. But this editorial is an exception. It shows that Congress is one of our enemies within.
Comment by Oldtimer

Americans can give thanks in this Christmas season for an end to the reckless and destructive 111th Congress. This is the Congress that passed Obamacare, against the wishes of a substantial majority of the public, on Christmas Eve of last year. In the dead of night, Democratic lawmakers stuffed the monstrous 2,700-page bill with special-interest goodies and political payoffs like the “Cornhusker Kickback” and the “Louisiana Purchase.” As we have learned since, most members were still ignorant of the bill’s contents three months later, when it gained final passage in the House. No surprise that its immediate results — both intended and unintended — have been almost uniformly bad.

Similarly, odds are that not one member of the 111th Congress actually read the so-called “cap-and-trade” bill before it passed the House in June 2009. Even a speed-reader could not have digested House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman’s last-second, 309-page amendment, which read as clear as mud: “Page 14, strike lines 1 through 3 and insert the following. …” It was filed after 1:30 a.m. just before the vote on final passage. There is also serious doubt that any member of Congress understood the 2,000-page financial reform bill that Congress passed this summer. One of its two main sponsors, Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., remarked, “No one will know until this is actually in place how it works. But we believe we’ve done something that has been needed for a long time. …”

And Democrats wonder why Gallup found this Congress to be the least popular in the history of its polls?

After suffering a comprehensive and humiliating defeat in the midterm election, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the unfrocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led lame-duck congressional Democrats on a last-minute banzai charge for more federal spending, debt, earmarks, taxes and regulations. They unsuccessfully pushed for the biggest tax increase in American history, a yearlong spending bill loaded with pork, and a DREAM Act to award amnesty to certain children of illegal immigrants. We hope that voters will remember these misguided initiatives in two years.

Our Founding Fathers were always wary of those who wanted government to do lots of big things. That’s why they created a system that separated powers among three more or less equal branches and provided each of them with powerful checks and balances. When professional politicians become frustrated with Congress, it is a sign that our system is working as intended. Columbia University historian Alan Brinkley told Bloomberg News recently that “this is probably the most productive session of Congress since at least the ’60s.” When Congress votes on bills that no one reads or understands, it can be quite “productive.” Americans have already rendered a verdict on such productivity and elected a new Congress with orders to clean up the mess in Washington.

The Federal Reserve – a real enemy within!!

Federal Reserve Bank (Inc.) A Murderous History?
Banksters, the Worlds Worst Gangsters

http://theruthlesstruth.com/wordpress/2009/05/03/federal-reserve-bank-inc-a-murderous-history-banksters-the-worlds-worst-gangsters/
May 1, 1776 Adam Weishaupt retained by Rothschild’s completes world dominance plan known as the Illuminati.
1776-1790: U.S. Independence – Free Banking -no formal central bank.
1791-1811: First Bank of the United States.
1816-1836: Second Bank of the United States.
1837-1862: Free Banking Era -no formal central bank.
1862-1913: System of National Banks (Consequence of Lincoln’s War).
1914-current: A consortium of 12 privately held banks called the Federal Reserve Bank. 

The largest share holder of the bank are the Rothschild’s of London.

The accomplishments of the Rothschild’s and fellow banksters is nothing short of astonishing. They have literally gotten the world to hand them the right to manufacture money out of nothing and then to turn around and lend the mammon back to the world plus usurious interest! Almost singlehandedly, this small group of men have dominated the world. However, in their efforts to dominate the world they have caused extraordinary pain and agony and even potentially the complete destruction of life on earth.

The Federal Reserve Bank is a consortium of twelve private banks which are not part of the United States Government.

These private banks purchase paper notes from the U.S. mint for printing cost or simply enter digital money into their computer then lend back the money plus interest to the people through member banks. The profits go into the share holders of the bank’s pocket’s, the U.S. public receives no benefit.

The Primary Owners of the Federal Reserve Bank Are:
1. Rothschild’s of London and Berlin
2. Lazard Brothers of Paris
3. Israel Moses Seaf of Italy
4. Kuhn, Loeb & Co. of Germany and New York
5. Warburg & Company of Hamburg, Germany
6. Lehman Brothers of New York
7. Goldman, Sachs of New York
8. Rockefeller Brothers of New York


All the primary owners are branches of European establishments. Foreigners, almost entirely Jewish, control the United States Money supply. They literally own exclusive rights to the dollar and simply enter dollars into their banks books to make money which they then lend back to us at a profit. For them money does not grow on trees, it is simply a data entry into their account. Clearly the private ownership of the U.S. Dollar is by far The Greatest Crime of the Century. The owners of this bank have been responsible for instigating all the major wars and depressions in the last 100 years. They own the bank, they own the dollar and they own all the major media channels, the military industrial complex and most politicians, judges and cops.

There have been assassination attempts on every President who attempted to eliminate these private National Banks. The privately held Federal Reserve Bank has not once been audited and never pays any income tax on their astonishing income.

The bank is supposed to bring stability to the economy, however, almost every major market crash and war can be attributed to the Federal Reserve Bank, including the Great Depression, WW I, WW II, the Gulf War etc.

In 1913 in exchange for paying for his Presidential campaign, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act handing over the U.S. currency to twelve regional private banks. In 1933 Roosevelt confiscated citizens gold and handed it to these private banks.

“If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency.. the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
Thomas Jefferson

In February 1863, Congress established another National Banking system. The bankers were intending to charge between 24% and 36% interest rates for money to finance the war. To avoid the interest, Lincoln ordered the printing of $450 million in bank notes guaranteed by the U.S. government. “The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency. Creating and issuing money is the supreme prerogative of government and is its greatest creative opportunity. Adopting these principles will save the taxpayers immense sums of interest and money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity.” The notes were called “Greenbacks” and effectively eliminated the interest the private banks charged on notes they issued. 

On April 9, 1865 following Lincoln’s brutal, immoral and cruel scorched earth war policy, Lee surrendered at Appomattox. Johnston’s army surrendered on April 26, 1865.

On Apr 14, 1865, Lincoln was assassinated and Congress revoked the Greenback Law and enacted, in its place, the National Banking Act supporting privately owned national banks. The associates of the President Lincoln’s assassin were according to many, on the payroll of the Rothschild’s. The Nation was thrown into a state of constant debt, paying interest to bankers who created cash.

President James A. Garfield was inaugurated in 1881, he said “Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce”. On July 2, 1881 Garfield was shot, he dies on September 19.

On September 6, 1901 President McKinley is shot by an assassin, he dies on September 14. Theodore Roosevelt becomes President.

April 5th 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued a treasonous Executive Order ordering citizens to hand their gold and gold certificates to the private Federal Reserve Bank: Executive Order 6102:  “Section 2. All persons are hereby required to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, to a Federal Reserve Bank or a branch or agency thereof or to any member bank of the Federal Reserve System all gold coin, gold bullion and gold certificates now owned by them or coming into their ownership on or before April 28, 1933”
“Section 9. Whoever willfully violates any provision of this Executive Order or of these regulations or of any rule, regulation or license issued thereunder may be fined not more than $10,000, or, if a natural person, may be imprisoned for not more than ten years, or both”

FDR proceeded to implement the “New Deal” which converted the United States of America to the United Socialist States of America. Instituting pure socialism in Social Security, the FCC to control the airwaves, the SEC to control banking and eliminate any potential competitors to the private Federal Reserve Bank.

On June 4, 1963, President Kennedy signed a Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110. This order virtually stripped the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Government at interest. President Kennedy declared the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. This order gave the Treasury Department the authority to issue silver certificates against any silver in the treasury. This executive order still stands today. In less than five months after signing that executive order President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

The United States Notes (silver certificates) he had issued were taken out of circulation immediately. Federal Reserve Notes continued to serve as the legal currency of this nation. It is estimated that 99% of all U.S. paper currency circulating in 1999 are Federal Reserve Notes.

SNIP********************************

When Ronald Reagan attempted to address the problem with the Federal Reserve Bank another mysterious gunman attempted to assassinate him. Nine American Presidents have been the targets of assassination:- Andrew Jackson in 1835 (opposed a private national bank), Abraham Lincoln in 1865 (opposed a private national bank), James Garfield in 1881 (opposed a private national bank), William McKinley in 1901, Harry S. Truman in 1950, John F. Kennedy in 1963 (opposed a private national bank), Richard Nixon in 1974, Gerald Ford twice in 1975, and Ronald Reagan in 1981 (opposed a private national bank):

According to Congressional record the U.S. Government can buy back the FED at any time for $450 million. That’s about half the amount of money we pay them daily.

As of March 6, 2006, the national debt stood at 8.2 trillion dollars. The American taxpayers had paid the FED banking system $173,875,979,369.66 in interest on that debt in just five short months, from October, 2005, through February, 2006. No con artist or group of con artists in history has ever perpetrated a scam that even approaches the scope of this one.

The Fed allows Congress to spend all they want that’s why your Congressperson does nothing.

SNIP*************************************

Ron Paul introduced a bill to eliminate the Federal Reserve Bank, to abolish the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve ITSELF. So the question is, how long will the Fed allow Ron Paul to live?

ANTI-FEDERALISM, NULLIFICATION and SECESSION

In politics, Anti-Federalism is a term referring to those who believe that a central or federal government should have less power than state government.

Nullification is the branding of a specific law or act of Congress contrary to the needs and desires of the state government and the people of that state. The Boston Tea Party was a strong act of nullification of Britain’s taxation policies by some of the residents of Massachusetts.
Secession of the 13 colonies followed when many such despicable acts of the British crown forced the colonists to realize there would and could be no co-existence with Britain. The colonies felt they and they alone should have the right to determine their course in the world as free and independent, sovereign nations. The basic reason for the formation of a union of nation states was mutual defense.
The Federalists (liberals?) of colonial times favored the creation of a strong federal government that would more closely unite the states as one large, continental nation. They tended to come from the wealthier class of elite merchants and plantation owners. Federalists had been instrumental in the creation of the Constitution, arguing that it was a necessary improvement on the Articles of Confederation, the country’s first attempt at unifying the states in a national political arrangement. Leaders among the Federalists included two men who helped develop the Constitution; James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, and two national heroes whose support would greatly improve the Federalists’ prospects for winning, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.
Anti-Federalists (conservatives?), on the other hand, were members of a loosely structured movement that opposed the creation of a stronger U.S. federal government and which later opposed the ratification of the Constitution of 1787. The previous constitution, called the Articles of Confederation, gave state governments more authority. Led by Patrick Henry of Virginia, Anti-Federalists worried, among other things, that the position of president, then a novelty, might evolve into a monarchy.
Passage of the Constitution by the states was by no means certain in 1787. The Anti-Federalists included primarily farmers and tradesmen and were less likely to be a part of the wealthy elite than were members of their opposition, the Federalists. The Anti-Federalists believed that each state should have a sovereign, independent government. Their leaders included some of the most influential figures in the nation, including Patrick Henry and George Mason, leading national figures during the Revolutionary War period.
Between September 17, 1787, the day the Constitution was signed by the Constitutional Convention, and May 29, 1790, the day Rhode Island became the thirteenth and last state to ratify the Constitution, the Federalists and Anti-Federalists engaged in a fierce national debate on the merits of the Constitution. This debate occurred in meeting halls, on streets, and on the printed page. Both sides in the argument had a considerable following. Many of the questions raised remain with us today: What is the best form of government? What rights must the government protect? Which governmental powers should be granted to the states, and which to the federal government?
In making their arguments, the Anti-Federalists often relied on the rhetoric of the Revolutionary War era, which stressed the virtues of local rule and associated centralized power with a tyrannical monarch. Thus, the Anti-Federalists frequently claimed that the Constitution represented a step away from the democratic goals of the American Revolution and toward the twin evils of monarchy and aristocracy. The Anti-Federalists feared that the Constitution gave the president too much power and that the proposed Congress would be too aristocratic in nature, with too few representatives for too many people.
The Anti-Federalists also shared the feeling that so large a country as the United States could not possibly be controlled by one national government. One Pennsylvania Anti-Federalist, who signed his articles “Centinel,” declared,
“It is the opinion of the greatest writers, that a very extensive country cannot be governed on democratical principles, on any other plan than a confederation of a number of small republics, possessing all the powers of internal government, but united in the management of their foreign and general concerns… Anything short of despotism could not bind so great a country under one government.”
Although the Anti-Federalists were united in their opposition to the Constitution, they did not agree on what form of government made the best alternative to it. Some still believed that the Articles of Confederation could be amended in such a way that they would provide a workable confederation. Some wanted the Union to break up and re-form into three or four different confederacies. Others were even ready to accept the Constitution if it were amended in such a way that the rights of citizens and states would be more fully protected.
The Federalist vs. Anti-Federalist arguments continue to this day – over different issues, of course. The “Federalists,” for example, want the federal government to take over health care. The “Anti-federalists” believe health care is best left to individuals and their insurance companies. At worst, the Anti-Federalists believe the individual states are better equipped to handle the issue than a central government too far removed from the problems facing individuals.
Today’s Federalists probably jump for joy every time Obama appoints a “czar” to a government post. Anti-Federalists see such things as czars just one more reason to secede from the union – just one more example of a federal government gone amok.
Today’s Federalists don’t seem to be bothered by run-away federal tax and spend policies. Anti-Federalists are seeing red – red from anger and red from the color of budgetary ink.
Federalists favor strict gun controls and want all guns registered. Even better, from a Federalist viewpoint, is for private ownership of guns abolished and seized by the federal government. Anti-Federalists scream in bloody rage because they believe the 2nd Amendment is inviolate and is the only thing protecting them from a complete federal takeover.
Whether it be nullification, such as Montana’s stand against gun laws, or secession, as Texas has already threatened, most Americans agree that something has to be done.

NULLIFICATION – Events Leading to Civil War


Toward the end of his first term in office, President Jackson was forced to confront the state of South Carolina on the issue of the protective tariff. Business and farming interests in the state had hoped that Jackson would use his presidential power to modify tariff laws they had long opposed. In their view, all the benefits of protection were going to Northern manufacturers, and while the country as a whole grew richer, South Carolina grew poorer, with its planters bearing the burden of higher prices.

The protective tariff passed by Congress and signed into law by Jackson in 1832 was milder than that of 1828, but it further embittered many in the state. In response, a number of South Carolina citizens endorsed the states’ rights principle of “nullification,” which was enunciated by John C. Calhoun, Jackson’s vice president until 1832, in his South Carolina Exposition and Protest (1828). South Carolina dealt with the tariff by adopting the Ordinance of Nullification, which declared both the tariffs of 1828 and 1832 null and void within state borders. The legislature also passed laws to enforce the ordinance, including authorization for raising a military force and appropriations for arms.
Nullification was only the most recent in a series of state challenges to the authority of the federal government. There had been a continuing contest between the states and the national government over the power of the latter, and over the loyalty of the citizenry, almost since the founding of the republic. The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions of 1798, for example, had defied the Alien and Sedition Acts, and in the Hartford Convention, New England voiced its opposition to President Madison and the war against the British.
In response to South Carolina’s threat, Jackson sent seven small naval vessels and a man-of-war to Charleston in November 1832. On December 10, he issued a resounding proclamation against the nullifiers. South Carolina, the president declared, stood on “the brink of insurrection and treason,” and he appealed to the people of the state to reassert their allegiance to that Union for which their ancestors had fought.
When the question of tariff duties again came before Congress, it soon became clear that only one man, Senator Henry Clay, the great advocate of protection (and a political rival of Jackson), could pilot a compromise measure through Congress. Clay’s tariff bill — quickly passed in 1833 — specified that all duties in excess of 20 percent of the value of the goods imported were to be reduced by easy stages, so that by 1842, the duties on all articles would reach the level of the moderate tariff of 1816.

Nullification leaders in South Carolina had expected the support of other Southern states, but without exception, the rest of the South declared South Carolina’s course unwise and unconstitutional. Eventually, South Carolina rescinded its action. Both sides, nevertheless, claimed victory. Jackson had committed the federal government to the principle of Union supremacy. But South Carolina, by its show of resistance, had obtained many of the demands it sought, and had demonstrated that a single state could force its will on Congress.
