AWESOME VIDEO: Best Moments of GOP Leader John Boehner

Posted by iusbvision on September 30, 2010

This is great stuff. Trust me you will want to watch every moment, you will be cheering and clapping.

Boehner goes nuclear when he finds out that language was illegally inserted into the bill giving the AIG execs big bonuses with our money. You see they were big contributors to Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT)

Democrats break transparency promise again;  Boehner chews out Henry Waxman for dropping a 300 page amendment to energy tax bill in the hopper at 3:09 am (so that no one could read it).

Here we are with an 1,100 pages that not one member has read this not one! When happened to the promise that we were going to let the American people see what was in this bill?!

John Boehner: Can you say this was done openly, with transparency and accountability, without backroom deals and struck behind closed doors hidden from the people? HELL NO YOU CAN’T!

This is the must see video of the year. It is the greatest speech in the well I have ever seen.

Interesting how the Democrats start to say yes when Boehner asks if they even read the bill when everyone knows that the final version of the 2000 page bill was only put out a short time before the vote was taken.

Waiting For Superman: If You Really Want ‘Social Justice,’ Dismantle the Teachers Unions

Posted by iusbvision on September 30, 2010

This is the film that may be a catalyst for real change in our education system.

A kid should not have to hope to get picked in a lottery for a chance at a good education. The few charter schools that are allowed to exist are there to placate the parents who KNOW what is going on in public schools and get them out of the way so the union can more easily control school boards that spend between $7000 – $30,000 per year per student and get the results we have been seeing. Some say “our public school is fine”, I ask “compared to what”.

CATO: DC Schools Pay $28,170 per child for failure. Every school district examined greatly under reports stated expenses.

AFL-CIO Head Calls For Government Takeover of All Business

Posted by iusbvision on September 30, 2010

So what Trumka is calling for is a textbook definition of communism/socialism. So will the elite media apologize to Glenn Beck now?

Ok so, according to Trumka, the government will run our companies.. so I wonder who will be the czar in charge of toilet paper and tampons? European socialist countries have “government toilet paper” made to strict government regulations. Have you seen or (god forbid) ever had to use Euro-toilet paper? Believe me, you will be running back home for the Charmin in short order.

Via BigGovernment.com:

Woah! Radical AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is calling for the left to take control over private industry.

Can we call them “socialists” yet?

Rich "Union Thug" Trumka

“We need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations.”

The AFL-CIO blog reported:

With the economy continuing to stagger and job creation not moving quickly, “working people are justifiably angry and frustrated” as they approach the Nov. 2 elections, says AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

Trumka and Working America Executive Director Karen Nussbaum, New York Times columnist Bob HerbertEric Alterman, journalist and senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, and moderator Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the Nation, led a panel discussion—Which Way for the Working Class? Elections 2010 and Beyond—Friday afternoon in New York City.

More than 400 people attended the event at the Great Hall at Cooper Union.

Trumka said it is vital to channel working-class anger away from Fox News and Tea Party extremists who are delivering

a cynical, deeply dishonest and incoherent message—that big government is somehow to blame for the current crisis that the budget deficit will eat our children, and that illegal immigrants took all the good jobs.

However, he added, “The good news is they haven’t bought into right-wing ideology. They are just confused about who to blame.” But:

We have to offer working people something other than the dead-end choice between the failed agenda of greed and the voices of hate and division and violence.

…In the short term, said Trumka, the labor movement has to “recapture the moment and take control of the national conversation.” Building for the future,

we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now.

Last week this socialist called Sarah Palin the new McCarthy. Now he wants the left to take over private industry.

Dr. Adams: I’ve been exposing university administrators for their petty retaliation against conservative speech and their dishonesty for years

Posted by iusbvision on September 29, 2010

A great interview with Dr. Mike Adams in Human Events. Adams teaches at UNC. The university administration and other intolerant left wing academics have been trying to censor and retaliate against him for years.

Dr. Mike Adams

Tell me about the moment you decided to enter the political arena.

ADAMS: It was right after 9/11. A Communist former student of mine threatened to sue me for libel over a difference of political opinion. I told her the Constitution protected her speech just as it had protected “bigoted,” “unintelligent,” and “immature” speech for many years. She cried to her mommy, who was also a commie. And she was also an administrator at my university. Her mommy the commie convinced the administration to read some of my private emails in retaliation because she said her daughter felt “offended” and “berated” by my opinions. I guess they don’t make Communists like they used to.

I took the story to the national press and was featured on Rush Limbaugh, The Hannity & The Other Guy Show, and Neal Boortz. In response, my university lied to the national press about reading my private emails. They got caught lying about it and, let’s just say, they ticked off the wrong cowboy. I’ve been exposing university administrators for their petty retaliation against conservative speech and their dishonesty for years. I’ve written two books and 650 nationally published columns about it. I have spoken at 65 different universities about it. I use the proceeds from every speech to buy guns and ammunition, which angers my opponents even more.

And I plan to continue to speak out about liberal hypocrisy and censorship until I die. It will take a bullet in the head to stop me. Thankfully, the liberals I write about don’t have guns. They don’t even have stones.

Reminder: Big Business Loves Big Government (especially Democrats)

Posted by iusbvision on September 29, 2010

In the 2008 election big business, bankers and Wall Street etc overwhelmingly supported Obama and the Democrats. Goldman Sachs guys and lobbyists are all over the White House. In fact after making promises to reign in the corporate lobbyists, Obama and the Democrats relaxed the restrictions on them.

The truth is that Big Business loves big government, because the regulations they influence and the taxes Democrats pass turns the small to medium sized business competition into no competition.

Republicans are the party of small business and the people they employ which is the majority of workers. Republicans dont get massive donations filtered through George Soros and the Tides Foundation to countless PACS and 527’s like the Democrats do. The majority of donations to Republicans are in individual donations of $200 or less. There facts are easily verified by public records.

Examine the proof in the following 2 links –

Corruption You Can Believe In: Failed Sub Primes and Mortgage Fraud Lenders Funneled Money to Dodd & Obama the Most. Fannie & Freddie Gave $200 Million to Partisans-Most Went to Democrats! Dodd, Obama Among Top Recipients. Republicans Attempted to Pass Reforms-Blocked by Democrat Leadership!

and

Democrats put language in the ‘Stimulus Bill’ to protect AIG executive bonuses. Dodd and Obama were the number one recipients of money from AIG. Distraction in full swing & Congress’ plan to tax the bonuses at 100% wont pass constitutional muster. – UPDATE: Shep Smith goes off on Congress.

Christine O’Donnell Mailer Outing Chris Coons Record

Posted by iusbvision on September 29, 2010

Coons is like so many politicians that we have seen from both parties that campaign one way and the very first day after they take office they turn their back on the promises they made to the voters and abandon the brand they campaigned on. Of course we have our own Joe Donnelly as an example of that as he voted for most of the nonsense he said he would protect us against. Now that Donnelly is facing the voters once again he tells us he is against the Obama/Pelosi agenda that he voted for WHILE taking millions from that very same Democratic leadership, their PACS and their donors.  Gimme a break.

Of course leading up to the 2006 election the Republicans strayed away from their promises and their brand and the voters threw most of the offenders out of office and now the Tea Party is defeating many of the few wayward Republicans that remained. The vast majority of the Republican Party that is in office or politically active is new blood who has had enough of the broken promises. Christine O’Donnell, Joe Miller, Marco Rubio and our own Jackie Walorski and Marlin Stutzman are Tea Party approved new blood candidates.

Christine O'Donnell

While the elite media launches all these “investigations” to “expose” her and the Democrats launch a series of personal attack ads that have nothing to do with the issues, O’Donnell is staying squarely focused on the record. Notice how the elite media has no interest in reporting about Coons record or go through his personal life and invent a bunch of distortions like they are doing to O’Donnell and they did to Palin. It is just how the elite media ignored Obama’s record in Illinois and his radical and some criminal personal associations leaving a couple of guys at Fox and National Review to look at his record. For example how many people on the street know that Obama was a chairman of the Blagojevich re-election campaign? Yet it is widely reported that O’Donnell dabbled in Wicca in HIGH SCHOOL before she became a Christian and Joe the Plumber only had an apprentice plumbing license. Gimme a break. This is why ALL of these candidates need YOUR financial support now because they are being outspent and attacked by the elite media.

O’Donnell Comments:

Delaware can’t afford any more of my opponent’s broken promises, and double digit tax increases. America needs her leaders to demonstrate the political courage to actually cut spending.

The Dead Still Vote in Indiana, Massachusetts and Florida. Obama Admin Refuses to Enforce Voting Integrity Laws

Posted by iusbvision on September 29, 2010

Department of Justice Voter section states it has no intention of enforcing vote list maintenance laws. Welcome to Chicago…

Via RedState:

There are 116,000 dead eligible voters in Massachusetts.  And in Florida, one major newspaper recently investigated and reported that almost 15,000 dead Floridians are still hanging around on the election rolls – just six weeks before one of the most vicious and important election cycles in our history.  Can it be the sun?  Most States have similar statistics.  Every two years, states must report to the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC) information about the integrity and accuracy of their voter rolls.  The latest report is not good news for our democracy – or our international reputation. South Dakota, Texas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Indiana report in excess of a dozen counties with more registered voters than breathing human beings old enough to vote.  West Virginia, Maryland, Iowa and North Carolina also reported having eligible deceased voters on their rolls.  The list goes on and on.  And so does the real risk that these voters will have illegal votes registered in their names.  Close races, like the Franken/Coleman race in Minnesota can be decided on just a handful of votes.  We may have to go to purple thumbprints at this rate.  Hugo Chavez must be howling at this American disgrace.

Democrats seem to be suspiciously inept at cleaning out the rolls.  The Ohio Secretary of State is not at all anxious about the fact that nearly 5,800 departed Ohioans are still registered to vote.  A partisan Democrat, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner is more concerned about the living – Spanish speaking only voters.  She has cooperated with the Department of Justice to force Cuyahoga County to spend $500,000 on bilingual ballots to accommodate about 6,000 non-English speakers.

In November, 2009 political appointee Julie Fernandes reportedly told the entire assembled Department of Justice Voting Section that the Obama Administration would not enforce the list maintenance legal requirements of Section 8 of the  National Voter Registration Act.  Fernandes reportedly said, “we do not have any interest in enforcing that part of the law.”

Frank Luntz poll group in Florida shows how uninformed some voters are.

Posted by iusbvision on September 29, 2010

This video is painful but a must see.

Clearly only a couple of the people in that room of voters are informed with a respectable level of substance. The rest seem wildly emotional with few if any facts to back them up and that includes some of them who are on the traditionalist side.

This tells us that the elite media has failed miserably to inform these people. It may also be a reflection how bad our public schools have become. See this example from Jay Leno (and notice even the young college professor could not answer the questions):

On the bright side, survey’s from Rasmussen and others have shown a great awakening in knowledge of a large segment of American voters (most of whom are independents and cross pressured voters), but there is still a great deal of work to do.

MORE – Steven Crowder on the street asks “Who is the Vice President?”

This video is priceless. This is Steven Crowder conducting the now famous Berkeley interview. Keep in mind that UC Berkeley is rated as the #1 Public School in the Country.

By the way for those of you who didn’t get it in the video when he asks the question about the now expired so-called “Assault Weapon Ban”. The assault weapon ban had nothing to do with machine guns and never did and semi-automatics he refers to aren’t machine guns at all, they shoot one bullet with each pull of the trigger like most guns built since 1900. The fact is that anyone can buy a machine gun provide that they can pass a background check and pay the tax. That law has not changed since 1934.

If you think that this is not typical or was rigged, there is empirical evidence to support this right HERE.

Communist Party and other radical groups organizing for October D.C. Rallies

Posted by iusbvision on September 29, 2010

Besides the Communist Party……Democratic Socialists for America, SEIU, Green for All (founded by self described communist revolutionary and former Obama advisor Van Jones), NOW, Code Pink, Planned Parenthood, La Raza (The Race), International Answer/Workers World Party, Grey Panthers, Courage Campaign (Moveon.org), Solidarity (revolutionary socialist group), Jeremiah Wright’s Church, Student Action Labor Project (SLAP),…

But wait theres more!

International Socialist Organization:

The ISO stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialists Karl Marx, V.I. Lenin and Leon Trotsky in the belief that workers themselves–the vast majority of the population–are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society.

Organizing for America AKA BarackObama.com is also pushing this rally. So why is the White House associating itself with the list of fringe extremists above, several of whom advocate violence? Where is the elite media investigating and exposing these clowns like the investigation they did on those involved with the Glenn Beck Rally?

Marc Lamont Hill uses picture of known ACORN agitator as “proof” Tea Party is “racist”

Posted by iusbvision on September 27, 2010

Marc Lamont Hill is a far left academic who told Bill O’Reilly that he would “prove” that the Tea Party is “racist”. O’Reilly tore Hill’s weak case to shreds. I noticed that Hill used this picture which is  most prominently featured on THIS very web log as a picture of an ACORN agitator. It is highly unlikely that Hill saw this picture without seeing on Google the blogs that outed the joker pictured below as an ACORN agitator.

For those who saw the segment on O’Reilly, please examine the Real Clear Politics analysis of the “survey” that was done by a radicalized academic named Chris Parker who of course took his “findings” to Salon.com. [Editor’s Note – this is not the first time that Salon.com posted completely manufactured racism allegations – see this video HERE] O’Reilly was correct that Parker’s work was not scientific. Parker’s “survey” did not have a neutral control to compare the “pro Tea Party” vs “anti Tea Party” test groups to. So Hill’s claim that Parker’s work as scientific is nonsense. Without a neutral control this work would not be excepted as an 8th grade science fair project….and Hill is a professor! Hill has obviously forgotten the basic scientific method taught in every grade school science class. When compared to a large group as a control such as “all Americans” or “all whites” people who support the Tea Party have views that are right in line with those large groups. According to the “survey” only 49% of Tea Party supporters considered “whites” as “hard working”… so are they bigoted against whites as well?

Now check this out:

On “trustworthy,” the gap is smaller in the pro-Tea Party group (41% vs. 49%) than in the anti-Tea Party group (57% vs. 72%). One could write headlines about the “racial paranoia” of white liberals who consider blacks less trustworthy than whites! – It is also worth noting that, as in many other surveys, Asian-Americans in the UW poll are rated much more positively than whites. [IUSB Vision Editor asks…Ok so where is the racism there…]

L.A. Times:

Tea Party members are average Americans, 41% are Democrats, independents.

new Gallup Poll out this morning of 1,033 finds nothing fringe about self-proclaimed Tea Party adherents; they are slightly more likely to be employed, male and definitely more conservative. But otherwise Gallup’s Lydia Saad writes, “their age, educational background, employment status, and race — Tea Partiers are quite representative of the public at large.”

Justin Graber has a nice post about elite media created Tea Party myths HERE.

The Daily Caller has a series of stories where a cabal of elite media journalists conspired using an internet message board to accuse Republicans of being racist – HERE.

How to spot an ACORN agitator at a Tea Party

ACORN agitators frequently are bused to events to agitate or put on “staged” phony “grass roots” protests (click the link immediately above for details).  Of course far left blogs promised that ACORN and other agitators would be showing up to agitate, hold racist signs, etc. Just as the agitator from the Jack Conway campaign is doing in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4bpgnkNN7Q.

Obama Administration wants more wiretaps on internet

Posted by iusbvision on September 27, 2010

Where are the so called “far left privacy advocates” now? The Obama Administration (along with a willing Democratic Leadership in Congress) has consistently (1, 2, 3, 4, 5,)  pushed for more domestic spying ability and took away the sunset provision out of the Patriot Act.

Star-Tribune:

WASHINGTON – Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations of the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is “going dark” as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone.

Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters such as BlackBerry, social networking websites such as Facebook and software that allows direct “peer-to-peer” messaging such as Skype — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order. The mandate would include being able to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages.

The legislation, which the Obama administration plans to submit to Congress next year, raises fresh questions about how to balance security needs with protecting privacy and fostering technological innovation. And because security services around the world face the same problem, it could set an example that is copied globally.

Democrat Strategy: Lie & Sling Mud

Posted by iusbvision on September 26, 2010

This post is a part of our new “LIES” category.

Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Democratic candidates across the country are opening a fierce offensive of negative advertisements against Republicans, using lawsuits, tax filings, reports from the Better Business Bureau and even divorce proceedings to try to discredit their opponents and save their congressional majority.

Opposition research and attack advertising are deployed in almost every election, but these biting ads are coming far earlier than ever before, according to party strategists. The campaign has intensified in the past two weeks as early voting begins in several states and as vulnerable incumbents try to fight off an onslaught of influences by outside groups.

As they struggle to break through with economic messages, many Democrats are deploying the fruits of a yearlong investigation into the business and personal histories of Republican candidates in an effort to plant doubts about them and avoid having races become a national referendum on the performance of President Obama and his party.

As they struggle to break through with economic messages, many Democrats are deploying the fruits of a yearlong investigation into the business and personal histories of Republican candidates in an effort to plant doubts about them and avoid having races become a national referendum on the performance of President Obama and his party.

So far, many Republican candidates are defending themselves but not taking the bait by starting their own offensives. A review of television advertisements presented since Labor Day showed that the Republicans were basing theirs almost entirely on the records of Democrats on health care, the economic stimulus package and the first vote the Democrats cast when Congress convened in 2009: for making Nancy Pelosi speaker of the House.

As we can see in out own local race, and in the silly name calling Democrats are engaging in against Christine O’Donnell in Delaware and against Sharon Angle in Nevada. Democrats repeatedly accused South Carolina Governor Candidate Nikki Haley of having multiple affairs as if she was some kind of whore, but never offered proof to support it. Also notice how Democrats get especially nasty and personal when the Republican candidate is a woman.

South Carolina's Next Governor Nikki Haley

Here are other examples of the lying:
The lie; Wasserman is misrepresenting Ryan’s  position on Social Security. He doesn’t want to completely privatize it at all, he proposed as a possible alternative to offer people under age 55 the option of investing a fraction of their money in personal accounts in the same way that Congress has their retirement plan run. The plan that Congress has is partially private and partially ran by the government. All investments are carefully vetted and the money is very much diversified so if 1 of 25 investments loses some the others make money. The plan Congress has for themselves is ran VERY well and is quite lucrative. Of course what Wasserman doesn’t want to admit is that yes the Democrats have spent your Social Security money and continue to do so and now Social Security is in the red. The Social Security money is GONE and now Congress is printing money and burrowing money to pay Social Security benefits. Not being good enough Democrats have also raided $555 billion from the Medicare fund; Paul Ryan is 100% correct about that.
More Lies:

FactCheck.org Blasts Donnelley’s False Claims

Factcheck.org: Democratic Rep. Grayson wrongly says that his opponent ‘refused’ Vietnam service; claims he ‘doesn’t love this country.’

Factcheck.org: Labor union spends a pretty penny on misleading ads against GOP House candidates in Michigan and Nevada.

Factcheck.org: Obama’s (Latest) Social Security Whopper – The president claims Republican leaders are as eager to ‘privatize’ Social Security as they are to repeal his health care law. That’s not true.

Factcheck.org: In Indiana’s Senate race, Democratic Rep. Brad Ellsworth falsely alleged that his Republican opponent Dan Coats was involved in the closing of an automotive plant that left more than 800 people out of work.

Factcheck.org: The Democrat falsely accuses his likely Republican opponent of a cover-up.

Factcheck.org: A Democratic ad claims a GOP House candidate pledged to protect breaks for sending jobs abroad. He didn’t.


Now check this one out:
An independent group financed by labor unions distorts Whitman’s record as president and chief executive officer of eBay, the online auction site. The ad:
  • Says “overhead” expenses rose 2,000 percent from 1999 through 2007, without taking into account the phenomenal growth of a company that saw its payroll expand during that time from 138 employees to approximately 15,500;
  • Blames her for “failed mergers,” although she had more successes than failures, and falsely accuses her of resigning as a result of bad business deals;
Minnesota’s race for governor is pitting corporate money against money from labor unions and wealthy Democrats. So far, the misleading attack ads are all coming from the liberal side, and the corporate side is being badly outspent to boot. The Alliance for a Better Minnesota — a group funded by labor unions and the family of Democratic contender Mark Dayton — has raised nearly $1.7 million so far. Its ads have:
  • Accused GOP-endorsed candidate Tom Emmer of sponsoring a bill to “reduce penalties for drunk drivers.” That’s misleading. The bill would have required that accused drunk drivers be penalized only if convicted.
  • Said Emmer was “arrested twice himself for drunk driving.” That’s true — but the arrests were nearly 20 and 30 years ago.
  • Claimed Emmer voted against “corporations and CEOs” paying higher taxes. That’s false. He voted against a Democratic bill to raise state income taxes for all upper-income individuals — not corporations.
  • Claimed Emmer’s vote “created” a huge state deficit. That’s false as well. The deficit existed prior to Emmer’s vote against a Democratic plan to raise taxes to help close it.
On the other side, a group funded by Minnesota-based Target Corp. and several other corporations raised $1.1 million and has run a single, factually accurate ad supporting Emmer.

    Sarah Palin: Lies, Damned Lies – Obamacare 6 Months Later

    Posted by iusbvision on September 24, 2010

    This is a great post by former Governor Sarah Palin. She covers most of the pertinent facts we have been bringing you for a year in our health care round-up posts and our Health Law category, and all in one very well articulated note.

    Sarah Palin:

    It’s now six months since President Obama took control of one-sixth of the private sector economy with his health care “reform,” and the first changes to our health care system come into effect today. Despite overwhelming public dislike of the bill, we were told that D.C. knows best, and there was nothing to worry about, and we’d be better off swallowing the pill called Obamacare; so, in defiance of the will of the people, the President and his party rammed through this mother of all unfunded mandates. Nancy Pelosi said Congress had to pass the bill so that Americans could “find out what is in it.” We found out that it’s even worse than we feared.

    Remember when the president said, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”? Not true. In Texas alone a record number of doctors are leaving the Medicare system because of the cuts in reimbursements forced on them by Obamacare! The president of the Texas Medical Association, Dr. Susan Bailey, warns that “the Medicare system is beginning to implode.”

    Remember the Obama administration’s promise that Obamacare would cut a typical family’s premium “by up to $2500 a year”? Not true. In fact, fueled by reports that insurers expect premiums to rise by as much as 25 percent as a result of Obamacare, Senate Democrats are contemplating the introduction of price controls.

    Remember when the president said in his address to Congress that “no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions”? That turned out to be yet another one of those “You lie!” moments. We found out that Obamacare-mandated high risk insurance pools set up in states like Pennsylvania and New Mexico will fund abortions after all.

    Remember the promise that Obamacare would “strengthen small businesses”? Not true either. The net result of Obamacare is that small businesses will face higher health care costs, new Medicare taxes, and higher regulation compliance costs, while the much-hyped health care tax credit for small businesses turns out to be almost impossible to obtain.

    Remember the president’s promise that his bill would ensure “everyone [has] some basic security”? False again. Besides the great uncertainty that Obamacare hampers businesses with, companies now find it is actually cheaper to pay the $2000 per employee fine imposed by Obamacare than to keep insuring their workforce. This leaves millions of American workers at risk of losing their employer-provided health insurance.

    And remember when the Obama administration said they would not be “rationing care” in the future? That ol’ “death panels” thing I wrote about last year? That was before Obamacare was passed. Once it passed, they admitted there was going to be rationing after all. There has to be. The reality of Obamacare is that it enshrines what the New York Times called “The Power of No” – the government’s power to say no to your request for treatment of the people you love. The fact that the president used a recess appointment to push through the nomination of Dr. Donald Berwick as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services tells you all you need to know about this administration’s intentions. After all, Berwick is the man who said, “The decision is not whether we will ration care – the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.”

    By the way, when the administration was talking about that independent board that has the statutory power to decide which categories of treatment are worthy of funding based on efficiency calculations (that, again, sounded to me like a panel of faceless bureaucrats making life and death decisions about your loved ones – which, again, is what I referred to as a “death panel”), it was another opportunity for Americans to hear the truth about Obamacare’s intentions.

    So, yes, those rationing “death panels” are there, and so are the tax increases that the president also promised were “absolutely not” in his bill. (Aren’t you tiring of the untruths coming from this White House and the liberals in Congress?) When the state of Florida filed a challenge to Obamacare on the basis that the mandates in the bill are unconstitutional, the Obama Department of Justice filed a motion to dismiss the suit by citing the Anti-Injunction Act, which blocks courts from interfering with the federal government’s ability to collect taxes. Yes, taxes! Once the bill was passed it was no longer politically inconvenient for the Obama administration to admit that it makes no difference whether the payment is a tax or a penalty because it’s “assessed and collected in the same manner.” The National Taxpayer Advocate has already warnedthat “Congress must provide sufficient funding” to allow the IRS to collect this new tax. Pretty soon we’ll be paying taxes just to make it possible for the IRS to collect all the additional taxes under Obamacare! Seems as if this is another surprise that the public found out about after the bill was rammed through.

    But perhaps the most ridiculous promise of all was the president’s assurance that Obamacare will lead to “bending the curve” on health care spending. Yes, rationing is a part of the new system, and yes, Obamacare does raise taxes. But because the new government managed system is so incredibly complicated and expensive to run, health care spending will actually rise instead of fall. Don’t believe me? Then take a look at the Congressional Budget Office’s admittance that the CBO’s original estimate of the total costs of the bill were off by around $115 billion. Its new estimate is now above $1 trillion, and even that may be way too low. A more realistic figure calculated by the Pacific Research Institute puts the number at $2.5 to $3 trillion over the next 10 years! This is probably what President Obama was referring to when he admitted recently that he had known all along that “at the margins” his proposals were going to drive up costs. Give us a break! Only in this administration would they refer to a $3 trillion spending increase as “marginal.” Next time he comes to us with another one of his harebrained proposals for a budget-busting federal power grab, let’s make sure we remember the president’s admission that he was lying all along when he told us his health care plan was going to cut costs. He is increasing costs. He admits it now. Period.

    Higher costs and worse care – is it any wonder why people are overwhelmingly in favor of repealing and replacing Obamacare? Politicians who have vacillated on this issue need to be fired. Candidates who don’t support “repeal and replace” don’t deserve your support. No amount of money spent on Washington’s “government-wide apolitical public information campaign” (otherwise known as “propaganda”) will convince Americans that this awful legislation is anything other than a debt-driven big government train wreck. We need to repeal and replace it, and that can only happen if we elect a new Congress that will make scrapping Obamacare one of its top priorities. We can replace it with pro-private sector, patient-oriented reform that the GOP has proposed.

    On March 23, when Obamacare was signed into law, I launched my “Take back the 20” campaign, focusing on 20 congressional districts that John McCain and I carried in 2008 which are or were represented by members of Congress who voted in favor of Obamacare. They need to be held accountable for those votes. They voted for Obamacare. Now we can vote against them. We need to replace them with representatives who will respect the will of the people.

    That’s why today I’m launching a new Take Back the 20 website atwww.takebackthe20.com!

    TakeBackthe20.com provides information about the candidates in these 20 districts who are committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare. It has links to their personal websites and their donation pages. It allows you to read up on them, and then support them in their race to defeat those who gave us this terrible bill.

    We have to send Washington a message that it’s not acceptable to disregard the will of the people. We have to tell them enough is enough. No more defying the Constitution. No more driving us off a financial cliff. We must repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered, results-driven, free market reform that provides solutions to people of all income levels without bankrupting our country.

    It’s time to make a stand! Let’s take back the 20!

    – Sarah Palin

    Don’t Be Fooled: “Disclose Act” Designed to Skew Elections, Not Make Them Fair.

    Posted by iusbvision on September 23, 2010

    This is typical of the Democrat leaderships M.O..

    When the Democrats wanted to take away the right of workers to have a secret vote when it comes to unions, the Democrats called that “The Employee Free Choice Act” (HR 800).

    A similar game is going on with the so-called “Disclose Act” that passed the House and Republicans are trying to block in the Senate. The Democrats say:

    We are just trying to keep the Chinese and others from having influence on our elections by using disclosure. You Republicans just want to take all sorts of secret illegal money and keep the people from finding out what billionaires are funding you.

    This is textbook Orwellian doublespeak. 

    The truth is that the Democrats get all sorts of secret money. The Tides Foundation does not disclose its super wealthy donors no matter where in the world they are from. Tides funds many of the Democrats pressure groups and 527’s.

    The bill is designed to make SOME corporations and groups file a mountain of paperwork to run a political ad. Unions and other Democrat constituency groups are exempted. The NRA is exempted too only because the Democrats fear them. This is Chicago style politics once again.

    David Patten:

    The Disclose Act that House Democrats passed Thursday would “shred” the U.S. Constitution and represents a “blatant partisan maneuver to protect their incumbency,” according to U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President R. Bruce Josten.

    Josten says the Disclose Act, which passed by a 219 to 206 margin, reveals just how much Democrats fear the nation’s rising anti-incumbent fervor.

    “I think it’s clear what’s going on here,” says Josten. “The House Democratic majority and the Senate Democratic majority in Congress are clearly trying to tilt the playing field in the middle of the game, racing and rushing to do it.”

    Only two Republicans voted for the act: Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao of Louisiana and Rep. Michael Castle of Delaware.

    Just last week it looked like the bill was in trouble due to a controversial “carve out,” or exception, granted to the National Rifle Association excluding it from the bill’s provisions. But the bill was resuscitated in part thanks to a strong endorsement from the White House.

    The administration declared Monday that the Disclose Act “takes great strides to hold corporations who participate in the Nation’s elections accountable to the American people. As this is a matter of urgent importance, the administration urges prompt passage of the Disclose Act.”

    But Josten says the act would heavily restrict the rights of more than 100,000 associations nationwide to run ads expressing their political views.

    Groups opposing the measure span the political continuum, including the ACLU, the Sierra Club, PIRG (the federation of state public interest research groups), the chamber and many others.

    The chamber recently called the bill a “desperate attempt” by Democrats to grab a political advantage in the midterm elections.

    The act requires companies and associations to submit a mountain of paperwork to the Federal Election Commission if they want to run an ad. [IUSB Vision Editor’s note – most small business are members of associations to pool their resources. This bill is designed to freeze them out from political adverstising]

    Some companies – those that receive substantial government contracts or took TARP bailouts – would be altogether banned from spending money on election advertising.

    It also bans any company with more than 20 percent foreign ownership from advertising, which means international companies that employs tens of thousands of U.S. citizens, which also attract substantial foreign investment, could no longer pay for U.S. campaign-related advertising.

    CEOs who are major donors would have to appear on in ads to notify the public of their involvement. The top donor to the advertising organization would be required to appear in the commercial to explain their role as well.

    Finally, a TV ad would have to list the top five funders to the organization. The disclaimers alone would preclude the possibility of a 15-second advertisement.

    Josten and other business leaders charge the act’s onerous provisions are obviously designed to dissuade the business community from exercising its First Amendment rights.

    Another reason the bill’s intentions are suspect: Its principal author is Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md.

    Van Hollen’s primary job, as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is to get Democrats elected to Congress.

    “Organized labor, which notably was the single largest political spender in the 2008 election, some $420 million, who just in the past three weeks has announced their intention to spend $150 million minimally in this election to protect ‘incumbency,’ to quote them, they are carved out of the bill, no effect on them, no real disclosure, no real reporting requirements required of them,” he tells Newsmax.

    [IUSB Vision Editor – This is where it gets really interesting.. they know it is unconstitutional so the bill is designed to take as long as possible to get through the courts in hopes to impact the next two elections]

    According to Josten, every other bipartisan campaign reform dating back to 1943 has contained a provision requiring an expedited Supreme Court review, to ensure no infringement of the First Amendment. But not this one.

    “This piece of legislation in fact precludes expedited Supreme Court review interestingly enough,” Josten tells Newsmax. “It forces any potential challenger to the litigation to go through a district court process to be heard. And then ultimately, maybe three or four years from today … you get your hearing before the Supreme Court. They are clearly trying to cut off any opportunity to raise the constitutional issues that this bill tampers with, and I say in fact begins to shred.”

    Whether the act becomes law now depends on whether Democrats can muster enough votes to bring it to the floor of the Senate. So far, GOP sources tell Newsmax, the 41 Republican votes needed to block the bill are holding firm. But Democrats are expected to mount a serious effort to encourage a defection.

    The Disclose Act stems from Citizens United vs. FEC, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down McCain-Feingold campaign-finance regulations that limited the rights of companies and associations to run political advertising.

    The Supreme Court ruled such restrictions are an unconstitutional abridgment of the First Amendment’s guarantees of free speech.

    Democrats Shut Down American Light Bulb Factories

    Posted by iusbvision on September 23, 2010

    General Electric is closing its last incandescent light bulb factory in the U.S. to comply with the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. Representative Joe Barton of Texas is pushing to repeal the act and says that the government is mandating consumer behavior since the bulbs will no longer be available for purchase by 2014.

    The bulbs they are mandating are much more expensive and have so much murcury in them that they are a threat to pets and children. They are made in China etc now…

    Some people in Congress had to get paid for this little provision….

    Oldest Trick In The Book: CREW Attacks, Democrats Pile On.

    Posted by iusbvision on September 22, 2010

    Attention Political Science Students.

    You are about to get a lesson in partisan dirty tricks, and this one is just about the oldest one in the book.

    CREW   – “Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington” calls itself a “watchdog group” and that is usually how the elite media describes them. They make a big media splash accusing people of ethical and legal lapses…but… and wow is there a but.. 

    CREW is a partisan hit team and always has been. Here is their M.O.. They pick nine or ten republicans to target, many are political leaders or members in swing districts; and they pick one or two Democrats in districts that are so safe that they have little chance of being voted out. CREW knows that the complaint against the Democrats will be glossed over by the elite media and at the same time the Republicans will get piled upon.

    CREW will file FEC complains and ask the Justice Department to launch an “investigation”. It makes the papers for the weeks coming up to an important election and then, years later the charges are dropped or said person is cleared. Of course by then all is forgotten and CREW is off to the next set of Republicans to smear.

    CREW went after our own Chris Chocola and implied impropriety because Jack Abramoff sent him a campaign donation, of course that guy sent lots of members donations including Democrats but is that who CREW regularly highlights? Of course not. Of course Chocola did nothing wrong at all. CREW and some partisans at the Department of Justice went after GOP House Leader Tom DeLay for his so-called “Abramoff connection” (how marvelously vague). Delay was tremendously effective and the House Republicans lost their way when he had to step down from the leadership which resulted in the 2006-2008 losses. You see Republicans have much tighter ethics rules for their members. If a Republican is accused of wrongdoing he must step down from that leadership role. Democrats have no such rule.

    Of course the press makes little out of the fact that said victims of this abuse are cleared:

    Tom DeLay Cleared — N.Y. Times Puts the Story on Page A-18 (Behind Organic Golf Courses)

    Of course just weeks before the general election CREW is going after tea party candidate Christine O’Donnell.

    Read carefully

    CNN:

    O’Donnell camp fights back

    WILMINGTON, Delaware (CNN) – Christine O’Donnell’s Senate campaign is pushing back hard on allegations that she misused election funds by putting them to private use. Leading the counter-offensive is Cleta Mitchell, an attorney and an expert in campaign finance law, who was just retained by the O’Donnell campaign to deal with the allegations.

    In an interview with CNN, Mitchell responded to a complaint against O’Donnell filed this week by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. The group, known as CREW, accuses O’Donnell of spending roughly $20,000 from her failed 2008 campaign for the Senate for personal expenses.

    “That is not true,” Mitchell told CNN. She accused CREW and its executive director, Melanie Sloan, of libeling O’Donnell and said the campaign is considering a lawsuit against the group.

    “She has committed libel per se, slander per se by calling my client names… I’ve looked at lots of campaign FEC (Federal Election Commission) reports. And the things she (Sloan) is saying are simply not true,” Mitchell said in the interview.

    Sloan has called O’Donnell “a criminal” and “a crook,” in accusing the candidate of tax evasion and a host of other financial improprieties.

    Central to the allegations are claims that O’Donnell used 2008 campaign money to pay rent, to buy food and gasoline and even for a bowling outing. CREW says those expenditures occurred in 2009 and early 2010 when, the group says, O’Donnell had no active campaign.

    “She did have a campaign because she had gone from running in 2008 to running in 2010,” Mitchell told CNN Tuesday. “She was already running… she moved from one campaign to another and frankly the campaign headquarters was in her home – that’s not unusual.”

    For her part, Sloan denies allegations her group is politically biased and says it is acting on information provided to it by a former O’Donnell campaign official.

    “We’ve added up what we think is over $20,000 in expenses that were improper, that were money she used – campaign funds put to personal use. But it’s really hard to say, because there’s been no audit of her campaign. The fact is, once you start seeing this trend … the odds are there are many more expenses that we don’t know about,” Sloan told CNN in an interview.

    Campaign officials are upset that the CREW complaint is getting so much press.

    “You see, what the problem with Melanie Sloan and FEC complaints is you get to make big headlines, with lots of allegations and two or three years later, when they’re dismissed as being baseless, there’s no press. And so Melanie Sloan waited until Christine O’Donnell won the Republican nomination and less than a week later files a complaint that she’s obviously had for a long time, just ready to go,” Mitchell said.

     

    Food and gasoline for a bowling outing.. from her house…. in between campaigns..? And this makes national news? Ok have we maxed out the silly meter yet?

    This is how CREW and the politics of prosecution work. When called on their partisan smears, and what is so obvious and known by virtually everyone in the beltway; CREW and the press will wipe their feet on how they criticized a Democrats like Gary Meeks who have almost no chance of facing even a tough election.
