Why Are The Rules Always Different For Democrats?

The Liberty Bell's old home, before 1976.

Why are the Rules always different for Democrats? It doesn't matter if its Charlie Rangle not paying his taxes and just getting a slap on the wrist reprimand in the House, and not prison time. Or, IRS Chief ,Tim Geitner, forgetting to pay his income taxes, and being appointed Treasury Secretary. Maybe even Barney Frank's boyfriend running a prostitution ring from the apartment they shared, and it not reflecting negatively on him because, "He was unaware of it?" Or, Ted Kennedy, Mary Jo Kopechne, and Chappaquiddick. No one complained about Ted's and the Kennedy family's huge fortune. Nor, were they worried in the least how much Ted Kennedy paid in taxes.  

Now, Mitt Romney, an "Anybody But Obama" candidate is being ripped to shreds by the Democrats because of claims of Romney's destroying companies, his success in investing, his using capital gains laws in calculating his income taxes, in addition to the fact that he paid what the law required in income taxes. But, in the real world, how many companies have Democrat regulation and policies actually destroyed or economically crippled?

What about Democrat Senators and Representatives who made millions on their own investments, insider trading notwithstanding. We wager that an examination of their tax returns will show their income being taxed as capital gains at 15% or less, if anything. That certainly is not their "Fair Share" according to Obama. Have they been admonished and taken to the woodshed by the Organizer in Chief or his sidekick, Joe Biden?

Why aren’t Democrats and Obama attacking those on this list of Democrat lawmakers by name who made millions from Investments?

1. Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) $188.37 million- Married it- Teresa inherited the Heinz fortune. 
This man lives in Massachusetts and even bought a yacht in a neighboring state to avoid his state taxes.
He was eventually shamed into paying Massachusetts the $500,000/  
2. Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) $152 million- Investments
3. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) $70 million- Investments
4. Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) $56 million-Investments
5. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) $49 million- Investments
6. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) $46 million- Investments
7. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) $21 million- Husband’s Investments
8. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) $15 million- Husband’s Investments
9. Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) $14 million- Husband’s Investments
10. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) $10 million- Wife’s Investments- Has home in Abaco Bahamas
What are the chances of him having an offshore account there?
11. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) $9 million- Inherited from former Husband + New Husband’s investments
12. Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.) $8 million- Husband’s Investments
13. Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) $8 million- Businessman
14. Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill.) $7 million- Businessman- Investments
15. Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.) $6 million- Investments
16. Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) $6 million- Husband’s investments
17. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) $6 million- Investments
18. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) $5 million- Husband’s Investments
19. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) $5 million- Investments
20. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) $5 million- Investments

The Enemy Expatriation Act - We Have Met The Enemy And He Is Us

There is an ongoing assault on our liberties being foisted on us now by the House, Senate, and the President. Without a doubt, there’s a relentless all out attack on the free internet that the Communist Chinese, Syria, Egypt, and North Korea would be proud of. Reminiscent of the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, many who are vigilant on maintaining our rights believe this massive assault is just part of something that began with the just passed and signed National Defense Authorization Act.  But, now there’s the Enemy Expatriation Act. And, we the United States Citizens, are the Enemy.  

Does United States intelligence know something the average American doesn’t know that’s bringing about these Draconian changes. In the recent past there are those who would blame a Republican Administration or President George W. Bush for potential freedom stripping schemes like these. But, Bush is retired, and these things are unfolding before us under the most liberal President and Senate we have ever known. Democrats  even wrote the law's detainee provisions.  And, the conservative Republican controlled House has a hand in this too? This is beyond comprehension. The Liberal community is largely silent on these developments, except for, God help us, the ACLU. However, Occupiers believe the NDAA and Expatriiation Acts are directed at them

When the National Defense Authorization Act was signed by Obama under the cover of darkness on New Year’s Eve, not many paid attention to it, and most of the press was off for the weekend.
Under Section 1022 of the law, the provision on detention says that the requirement to detain a person in military custody does not extend to United States citizens or legal resident aliens.
But, many believe that it will be used in reality to do just that, to allow indefinite detention of anyone that the government deems should be arrested. This is without any arraignment, any charges being filed, any pretrial detention, or a trial, or a conviction, or sentence. 

While Obama spoke on the economy on a podium from the "Land of Make Believe" in Orlando today, with the "Enchanted Castle" as a backdrop,  and while Mickey Mouse and Goofy danced around him, this assault continued. What a campaign commercial this speech and fantasy background this will make. 

Obama's own words about the NDAA are very enlightening about what he believes he can do regarding detentions.  When Obama signed the NDAA,  he read from his teleprompter this "promise" that his administration, “Will not authorize the indefinite Military detention without trial of American Citizens.” Why would he read  that "promise" if he does not believe he can do exactly just that? He also read that, “Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation.”  

Was he referring to martial law powers? Was he referring to powers of the still to be formed National Security Force he dreams of? Or, was he referring to National Defense Authorization Act?  

Let’s not forget past government abuses going back two centuries. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson boldly told the world and listed numerous reasons why we had to be free of King George. There's one directly relevant to detention and trial. He wrote, “…The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these states. To prove this, let the facts be submitted to a candid world…For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury.”

In addition to U. S. Citizens being detained, as is in the NDAA law, now there is a mechanism in the Enemy Expatriation Act being moved along toward becoming law in both legislative bodies   that would allow Obama to do just that. Enemies of the State will be stripped of their natural born citizenship.  S 1698 introduced by Joe Lieberman and identical HR 3166 amend the Immigration and Nationality Act that will, quote, “Add engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States to the list of acts for which United States nationals would lose their nationality.” Up till now, native born American citizens have never been stripped of their citizenship.

The law this will amend, the Immigration and Nationality Act, which already states. “A person who is a national of the United States whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his nationality by voluntarily performing any of the following acts with the intention of relinquishing United States nationalitycommitting any act of treason against, or attempting by force to overthrow, or bearing arms against, the United States, violating or conspiring to violate any of the provisions of section 2383 of title 18, or willfully performing any act in violation of section 2385 of title 18, or violating section 2384 of title 18 by engaging in a conspiracy to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, if and when he is convicted thereof by a court martial or by a court of competent jurisdiction.”

The Enemy Expatriation Act adds to that list, “To add engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States” as another action for which Native born United States nationals would lose their nationality.”  

Stop these government efforts in their tracks. Contact your Senator or Congressman.. What is next?

The Regal Obamas- America's Royal First Family

Something has become very apparent in this country. The rules are always different if you are a Democrat. That’s whether it’s a Congressman whose boyfriend runs a prostitution ring from their shared apartment, which doesn't reflect negatively for the Congressman, or a Treasury Secretary who won't pay his own taxes, or an Attorney General who funnels firearms to Mexican drug traffickers, and can't get fired for that. The list is endless.

A recent article on a very liberal web site several days ago bashed Mitt Romney after he gave a campaign worker what it called a “Handful of cash,” when he found that she was having trouble making her bills and was financially struggling. That handful of cash was $50.00 or $60.00, the amount he apparently had in his wallet at the time. The article said that act showed that it contributed to the image of him as a multimillionaire that’s out of touch with average Americans.” That’s $50.00 to $60.00 more than the beneficient Obama has given to his brother, George Obama, who reportedly lives in poverty in Kenya.

But, Obama did help his Aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was in the U.S. illegally, but  was granted a waiver of deportation with virtually no opposition by the Justice Department, and is currently a legal resident. Its no wonder that the first call by his Uncle, Onyango Obama, 67 (mugshot below), was to be to Obama at the White House after he was arrested in Framingham, Massachusetts last year on a drunk driving charge. He was released, and could also be facing deportation after the Drunk Driving charge is resolved.

Although Romney is an “Anybody but Obama” candidate, this attack is hypocritical. Life has been nothing short of a continuous flamboyant and ostentatious party for the regal Obamas since ascending to the Presidency.  Donald Trump would be envious of this rich and famous family’s lifestyle.

Out of touch? How’s this for out of touch with the American people? After Obama was elected in 2008, he promised his wife a date. After all, he had been on the road for months campaigning. Lots of time away from Michelle while she campaigned elsewhere. It was a nice $60,000 date for a night on the town, dinner, and a musical in New York City. That doesn’t include Air Force One travel for the short hop, and police and Secret Service security costs. When’s the last time an “Average American” spent that kind of money on a date. That doesn't need to be answered.

However, Obama said after his election that his family has a “Blank Check.” He said that, “They basically have a blank check. Whatever she demands, she will get.” As Gordon Liddy would say, Michelle is "She who must be obeyed." Many average Americans have a checkbook full of blank checks at home too because there is nothing in their checking accounts to cover them thanks to Obama’s economic policy. Not even a trip to movies.  

Obama’s wife is a vacation junkie, whose lavish lifestyle is being funded by the U.S. taxpayer. Its always vacations to places only limited by her imagination. Their vacations to places like Martha’s Vineyard have been disasters that the Press Secretary has to spin their way out of. Its lavish things like their arriving four hours apart on separate government jets. And, the fact that the farm they rented costs $50,000 a week. The winter White House in Hawaii costs about $38,000 a week.

And while most Americans struggle to get a few days off, or a two week vacation, one 2010 flight to bring "Her Highness" and the kids to Hawaii ahead of “His Majesty, the President” cost $63,000. Obama’s return trips from Hawaii on Air Force One cost about a million dollars each. That million dollar vacation also took place this year. Secret Service and military lodging there runs about $16,000. It cost $134,000 for 24 White House staffers to stay at a hotel. Hawaiian police spent $252,000 on overtime. And, the ambulance that must always be present was $10,000. The 2011 Hawaiian vacation cost a reported $4,000.000. The dress that H.R.H Michelle wore to church there on Christmas has a $2,000+ price tag. Many Americans have to get their fashions at thrift stores like Goodwill. Business is booming there. At least one part of Obama's economic plan is working at America's thrift stores. 

The first Obama vacation was a two day stay in Panama City Florida, where vacation suites on the beach front run in the thousands. The excuse was to show that the area was safe from BP oil. There was no oil whatsoever on the beaches there. And, the radiant and crystal clear emerald green Gulf of Mexico view is majestic and magnificent from a top floor penthouse condo, a fitting temporary Obama royal residence. Queen Elizabeth has nothing on these people. Interestingly enough, there were no overnight stays in areas where tourism dollars were really needed in Alabama and Louisiana, where tourism came to a standstill.

There have been solo Michelle vacations to Spain, Latin America, Southern Africa, and a skiing trip to Vail. Michelle spent about 10 million tax dollars on vacations alone last year.

The President's reelection campaign website says, "There's so much more to do." Isn't that the truth? It's a nice life for America's Royalty, the ruling class.

The Top 20 Obama Gaffes The Press Would Like You To Forget

The Democratic National Committee is touting their latest internet video that spotlights the Top Ten Greatest GOP Moments of 2011. They counted down moments such as Cain’s brain freeze when he was asked if he agreed with Obama’s Lybia position. And, there’s Romney’s comment that Corporations are people too. (Albeit artificial people for legal purposes, but apparently the DNC doesn’t know that)  But, what about Omama’s continuing gaffes that the Media ignores?

Here are some of the best Obama gaffes the DNC hopes will go away:

1.         At his first St. Patrick’s Day White House celebration party on March 17, 2009, Irish Prime Minister Cowen was just a few lines into his speech, when he stopped reading from the teleprompter as he realized there was a teleprompter malfunction, and that he was reading the same speech Obama just read. Ready to save the day, Obama got back on the stage and began reading the Prime Minister’s speech that just appeared on the teleprompter, the speech that the Irish Prime Minister should have read.
As he unknowingly read the Prime Minister’s speech, Obama thanked himself for giving the St. Patrick's Day party at the White House before he realized his mistake and stopped. The press did not report this gaffe that was recorded on their running cameras.

2.         We can’t forget Obama’s speech about medic Corpsmen that saluted the military’s     

3.         There was the memorable Obama misstatement when he told a Memorial Day audience,
            "We're here to honor our fallen heroes, many of who are in the audience.

4.         Dan Quayle was nearly laughed out of he room when he misspelled potato. What about the ridiculous Obama statement during the 2008 campaign, “I've now been in 57 statesI think one left to go.''

5.         And speaking of brain freezes, Obama told a Congressional black caucus dinner that he didn’t want billionaires taxed at the same tax rate as a Jew. “When you start saying, at a time when the top one-tenth of 1 percent has seen their incomes go up four or five times over the last 20 years, and folks at the bottom have seen their incomes decline -- and your response is that you want poor folks to pay more? Give me a break. If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew -- as a janitor makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honor. I have no problem with that. 

6.         Here’s another state mistake for the big “O.”  despite being “born” in Hawaii, when asked a budget question on one of his many trips to Hawaii, he said, "When I meet with world leaders, what's striking -- whether it's in Europe or here in Asia -- the kinds of fundamental reforms and changes, both on the revenue side and the public pension side, that other countries are having to make are so much more significant than what we need to do in order to get our books in order." The press spun this as Obama just being tired. 

7.         During a visit to Westminster Abbey in London, Obama in 2011, Obama signed a guest book and dated his signature May 24, 2008.

8.         Obama doesn’t really know who our enemies are. Speaking of Iran, he recently said, arguing that, “tiny countries” with small defense budgets can’t do us harm.” 

9.         Obama at a press conference: "Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions."–while exasperated by reporters after a news conference.

10.       "Why can't I just eat my waffle?" --after being asked a foreign policy question by a newsperson.

11.       Obama on Grandma: "The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred in our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society." Can you imagine what would have happened if Bush said words like that about a black person?

12.       While speaking off the cuff on a tornado that killed 12 people. Obama got in trouble with the facts when he adlibbed off the teleprompter. Obama was off the teleprompter when he said, ''In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas.  Ten thousand people died—an entire town destroyed.''  He did get it right about the town being destroyed.

13.       The President said this to Jay Leno. “No, no.  I have been practicing.  ... I bowled a 129.  it's like—it was like Special Olympics, or something.” He called the Special Olympics to apologize.

14.       In front of a jubilant Sioux Falls, S.D., audience, Obama exulted: “Thank you, Sioux City. I said it wrong. I’ve been in Iowa for too long. I’m sorry.”

15.       Obama got mixed up while commending Fort Drum troops who had returned from Afghanistan, he said, “A comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn't receiving it posthumously."  Actually, Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti was killed in action, another soldier, Staff Sgt. Sal Giunta, was the first living recipient of the Medal of Honor that fought in Afghanistan. He had personally awarded the Medal of Honor to Giunta.

16.         "You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them ... And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
— Obama, at a San Francisco fundraiser before the Pennsylvania primary.

17.       Obama to George Stephanopolis, before Stephanopolis helped him out and “corrected” him. by saying what Obama “really” meant to say. Obama said, “What I was suggesting—you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith"

18.       President Obama explained all the benefits of ObamaCare during the healthcare debate by saying, “The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.” Sounds like a George Bush-ism, doesn't it? Dubyah would have been crucified by the press.

19.       Another apology due after this. "I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any seances."  Barack Obama, in his first press conference as President-elect, making a joke after telling reporters that he has spoken to all the living former Presidents since winning the election.

20.       In a Strongsville, Ohio speech, Obama proudly proclaimed that his healthcare plan would reduce insurance premiums by 3,000 percent.

21.       Obama indicated that his parents united as a direct result of the civil rights movement. He said, “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born.”Obama was born in 1961. The Selma march took place in 1965. 
22,         Obama gave the British Prime Minister a "special collector's box" of 25 classic American DVDs while Brown gave the U.S. President an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet and a first edition of the seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert, among other things. The DVD’s were formatted for U.S. DVD players and will not work on European players. We don’t know if Obama kept the Churchill biography because one of the first things he did as President was to send a bust of Churchill, formerly displayed in the Oval Office, Back to Great Britain. 

And the ultimate gaffe hasn't happened yet. We always make it a point to watch Obama quickly jogging down the stairs of Air Force one while holding his hands clasped together in front of him. It is inevitable that one day he will trip while not holding the railing and will surf all the way down the stairs. It will be a true Gerald Ford moment, and could cost him the Presidency if picked up up by comedians, and it will be. 

Stay tuned for Joe Biden's greatest hits.

Whatever Happened to Obama's Civilian National Security Force?


Obama's administration has a few more things on the agenda for you and me. Just like Eric Holder promised some action on gun control. Whatever happened to the community organizing of the Civilian National Security Force that Obama touted as a Presidential candidate Obama in 2008? We Believe some things are better left undone. Perhaps work on this is really going on "under the radar" as you read this. 

Plans on destroying American's firearms freedoms were being done "under the radar" as Obama explained to the Brady Coalition's Sarah Brady when she gave the White House an "F" on gun control. Obama apparently doesn't like to receive "F" grades, but we don't really know because he won't release his college records. Yes, some things like the Civilian National Security Force" are better left undone like the "under the radar" and murderous Fast and Furious "Gun Walker" Obama Justice Department scam. And, Holder is still standing. The rules are always different for Democrats. 

His pronouncement of the need for a Civilian National Security Force initially conjured up visions of brown shirted Storm Troopers with some people. Who knew what the hell this man meant then or now in his 2008 campaign speech. We still don't know. Some web sites, such as "Fact Check"  spin this "National Security Force" as meaning he would double the size of the Peace Corps. But those very words that Obama used," We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a  Civilian National Security force that's just as strong, just as well funded" do not conjure up Peace Corps visions. 

Were these words just poorly chosen? Poor word choices and misstatements are the province of poor old Joe Biden. Try as hard as Obama and his side kick may try, their sometimes off the cuff statements really reveal their true beliefs. Remember Obama's off the teleprompter "spreading the wealth is a good thing" to Joe the Plumber. Just consider Joe Biden recently saying that the Taliban are not our enemies. Tell that to the families of the five Polish soldiers who were killed by a Taliban roadside bomb within hours of that declaration. And, try those words with the families of U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines killed and wounded by the peace loving Taliban. 

Mr. Biden should have a chat with Navy Cross and Purple Heart recipient SEAL Marcus Latrelle, who single handedly managed to hold off and kill many of the the remainder of between 80 and 150 peace loving Taliban in Afghanistan as the sole survivor of the attack on his four man SEAL team patrol. His commander was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for bravely climbing under heavy Taliban terrorist fire to higher ground to radio for help. And, our side kick in chief Vice President doesn't even know who the enemy is. This is absolutely beyond belief. Its incomprehensible. How can this administration advance any of our nebulous "National Security Objectives," whatever they are, in any manner with this kind of thinking?" Does he even know what our real National Security Objectives are? 

And, just whom would Obama choose as the Czar of the National Security Force? Another Chicago political machine crony like Rahm Emmanuel, David Axelrod, or some Cass Sunsteen-esque Chicago political hack? Its sure to be someone  in the ultra liberal ruling class mold who believes that they are more fit to run our lives and take care of our families than we can ourselves. And, where's the money coming from to pay for this? 

There already is a Civilian National Security Force. Its called the Reserve Militia or Unorganized Militia as created by the Militia Act of 1903. If you are an able bodied "man" between 17 and 45, then you already belong. Of course, leftists spin this Militia Act as being the creation of the"National Guard." But, the National Guard was already in existence when the Militia Act was passed. Isn't that amazing? Apparently, The Organizer in Chief was not even aware of the existing Militia until recently. 

The Civilian Marksmanship Program, a Federally funded organization sprang from this Act. Their job is to help train Americans as marksmen, and to arm the populace as exemplified by the CMP shooting matches at Camp Perry, a military installation. They also have a few vintage M-1 Garands left for for sale at their website. 

Obama apparently just recently discovered that the U.S. Government was actually selling vintage military semiautomatic rifles to the American public. He recently had the State Department ban the importation of hundreds of thousands of M1 Garands loaned to Korea to be returned to the American Taxpayers and sold through the CMP. The State Department said those rifles would be disposed of by other means. This means their destruction. Why can't the taxpayers get these rifles back? They paid for them? It was just to please the anti gun rights organizations in order for them to claim one of their rare successes and aid in their fundraising marketing efforts. Its hard for a loser to get contributions. 

And, he wants this "Force" to be just as strong and well funded as the military. Well, the Government is now preparing to destroy the military by budget cuts of half a trillion dollars. The Secretary of Defense since last July, Leon Panetta, an Obama appointee, has said that these budget cuts will gut the military. Among other things, these budget cuts will put the Navy back to the same place where it was before the Pearl Harbor sneak attack, and the Army will be returning to pre-World War One levels. Obama can't even logistically manage our real military, let alone strategically. Maybe he could recruit the "Occupiers" for the National Security Force. He would just have to teach them where to use the restroom and what one is. 

History will repeat itself. We couldn't even begin to undertake the massive wartime defense manufacturing in a national emergency. We have no manufacturing of the type that helped us win in WWII left because manufacturers that would be making armaments and supplies have been forced off shore. The kind of factories that sustained us in World War II have disappeared. Gone for good. Once the ships, airplanes, and present armaments are gone, and the number of personnel in the military is cut to shreds, we will be helpless. Right now before the cuts, no one can defeat us in conventional warfare. But, not for long. The liberals who refuse to balance a budget, and the House and Senate are fast heading to making us equals with Europe in the economy, in healthcare, and militarily.   

All this destruction of the military being done with not one sign of objection by Obama. Not a single line or even a whimper of complaint about destroying our military has crossed the teleprompter of our Commander in Chief. We can only hope that the plans for the National Security Force never become reality.
