I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry, to organize anew or to scream, or even to go on fighting or just to throw in the towel… That is how I feel right now anyway. By tomorrow I’ll be ready to regroup and charge forward, but today I’m a bit in shock!
Just as Vice President Biden, supposedly VP of all Americans, barely got the words ‘Teaparty Terrorists’ out, we are already being hit by the fallout of the hidden contents and proceedings being leaked and found in the “Grand Compromise” debt bill that President Obama just signed into law hours ago. Another unread bill.
Only 18-months ago the Obama Administration and the Progressive Left duped, bullied and manipulated us all into ObamaCare, and we are still absorbing and fighting the ugly reality of what all was hidden in that bill. Yet with that memory still fresh, we allowed them to do it to us again. Obama refused to put out a plan of his own, manipulated the situation, and used the Cloward and Piven Strategy along with the Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to create another crisis, make the GOP (especially tea party supporters) look like the bad guys and got what he wanted… including a lot more power. And the right satisfied themselves with the notion that they had won because the conversation in Washington changed, plus they were promised a committee to study a Balanced Budget Amendment. Funny how they can run up soon to be $17Trillion in debt without a committee, but voting on a Balanced Budget Amendment requires one.
We were had again!! And it is becoming more and more evident that the real terrorists are the people we elect, in both parties! This entire debt crisis and debate over raising the debt ceiling was a Trojan Horse.
Since the bill was signed this afternoon we have already found out the following:
Before even signing the bill, Obama was already talking about tax increases and tax code reform for the wealthy and corporations. I wonder if there will be waivers for those who support his re-election through fundraisers, similar to ObamaCare waivers, for supporters and attendees of events like Obama’s combo 5oth B-day party fundraiser? The Business Insider who just wrote about this subject now warns that they were wrong and the biggest middle class tax increase in history will come in five months, and a tax increase for the top 2% of earners (the job creators) is coming as well, for Obama already said he would let the Bush tax cuts expire. In fact the revenues from those tax cuts expiring is already factored into this final “Grand Compromise” bill.
Congressman and GOP Presidential Candidate Ron Paul warns that the all-powerful new “Super Congress” created by the vote on the debt ceiling will be used to fast-track tax increases while concentrating more power over the nation’s purse strings in the hands of the Washington elite.
The fact that the establishment of a body which threatens to completely re-write over 200 years worth of constitutionally-based legislative practice has sailed through with barely a whimper of debate from politicians or the mainstream media is a damning indictment of how the Obama administration’s penchant for executive autonomy has aggressively seized control of the political process.
This is appalling, but it shouldn’t surprise anyone with the track record they have. This bill is unconstitutional… so the question is, if identified as such because of the Super Congress, can it be null and void?

In this same document Illegals Get $20 Billion in Pell Grants (How did that happen?):
SEC. 501. FEDERAL PELL GRANTS.
Section 401(b)(7)(A)(iv) of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1070a(b)(7)(A)(iv)) is amended–
(1) in subclause (II), by striking `$3,183,000,000′ and inserting `$13,183,000,000′; and
(2) in subclause (III), by striking `$0′ and inserting `$7,000,000,000′.
Little things mean a lot…$20 billion slipped in this bill just for Pell Grants… illegals get an early Christmas.
Ya just can’t make this stuff up!
And I know there are those of you out there thinking… well, there are going to be 12 members of that Super Committee – 3 Republicans from the Senate and 3 Dems from the Senate as well as 3 Dems from the House and 3 Republicans from the House , so there will certainly be a balance of voices and opinions. Well not so fast…
From the Daily Standard:
The debt ceiling deal will pass the Senate early this afternoon. No suspense there. But the vote will be worth watching for another reason: Three Republican Senate sources tell TWS that senators who vote against the deal will be ineligible to serve on the so-called “super-committee” for deficit reduction that the legislation creates.
While there’s certain logic to such a policy, it could be self-defeating. Excluding those who vote against the debt deal will ensure that some of the most fiscally conservative members of the Senate Republican caucus, including most of its freshmen, will be reading about the committee’s activities in the newspaper rather than guiding its decisions. Among those who have already declared their opposition to the deal: libertarian-leaning senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul (who appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio show this week and talked about the CNN Ambush and the Weimar Republic coming here); Jim DeMint, the aggressive fiscal hawk from South Carolina; conservative reformers Ron Johnson from Wisconsin and Pat Toomey from Pennsylvania; the ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee, Jeff Sessions; and Florida’s Marco Rubio, already one of the highest-profile conservatives in Congress.More worrisome for conservatives, however, is that private whip counts in the Senate found that some 20 Republicans expressed support for the proposals that came out of the Gang of Six. And while many of the components of that plan have merit as individual policy proposals, the package involves compromises on taxes anathema to most conservatives. Picking a Gang of Six member – or supporter – would further antagonize conservatives skeptical of the debt ceiling deal.
There’s the problem. If, say, a dozen of the strongest fiscal conservatives vote against the deal, the pool of Republicans that can be expected to hold the line on taxes shrinks very quickly. And if a key Republican objective for the committee is to block tax increases, the exclusion of these strong fiscal conservatives makes meeting that goal more difficult.
Mitch McConnell, who will make the selections, isn’t worried. He told Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto yesterday that the likelihood of tax hikes coming out of the committee is “pretty low.”
“What I can pretty certainly say to the American people, the chances of any kind of tax increase passing with this, with the appointees of John Boehner and I, are going to put in there are pretty low,” said McConnell. He added: “I’m comfortable we aren’t going to raise taxes coming out of this joint committee.”
UPDATE: McConnell spokesman Don Stewart says all senators will be considered. “No one is stronger in his opposition to tax hikes than Sen. McConnell. He will have serious discussions with all those who are interested in serving prior to making any appointments.” But we shall see if this really changes… I personally wouldn’t put my eggs in McConnell’s basket!
The only good thing we’ve heard today is the Fitch and Moodys have agreed to allow us to retain our AAA credit rating at least for now. But they have put us on a kind of probationary status until after the “Super Committee” has been chosen and they see what type of action they take to resolve the debt crisis. So let us be very clear… our AAA credit rating could very will still be downgraded! S&P on the other hand has not yet announced and a downgrade seems almost baked in because of the stand they took on a minimum of $4Trillion in cuts needed in the compromise bill to avoid it. A downgrade to AA+ is expected from S&P say most experts. Maybe the members of Congress should have looked a bit harder at Senator Tom Coburn’s letter: 9,000,000,000,000 Ways to Balance the Budget. (Seems our Federal Reserve Chief Bernanke had a bit to say about the U.S. Economy too!)
And lost in the endless drama of the debt-ceiling negotiations, but last week, the Republicans in charge of the House of Representatives launched an unprecedented attack on the U.S.’s environmental regulations. GOP Representatives added rider after rider to the 2012 spending bill for the Environmental Protection Agency and the Interior Department, tacking on amendments that would essentially prevent those agencies — charged with protecting America’s air, water and wildlife — from continuing their chokehold on energy production in the U.S..
Among the riders or last week were:
• A rider that would prevent the EPA from issuing any regulations on greenhouse-gas emissions over the next year — despite the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled the agency has the responsibility to regulate those emissions as a public-health threat under the Clean Air Act.
• A rider that would stop the EPA from carrying out tough new automobile-fuel-efficiency standards that were announced last week — standards that have the support of all the major automakers, however we are not sure how voluntary that support was.
• A rider that would prevent the EPA from labeling the toxic ash left over from coal combustion as hazardous waste — something that could alarm the people of Kingston, Tenn., buried by a coal-ash spill in 2008?
However, the Democrats are still in charge of the Senate, so we don’t know if any of these riders made it to the final EPA-Interior spending bill. The left feels that these demands were less about actual policy than about making a political point. Guess we will have to see how much of their point remained in the bill to be made?!? I wouldn’t look too hard to find them! (See The Time’s inside the Republican war on the EPA… or perhaps it could be called the Republican pro-American jobs and energy war?)
August 2, 1934
“With the death of German President Paul von Hindenburg, Chancellor Adolf Hitler becomes absolute dictator of Germany under the title of Fuhrer, or “Leader.” The German army took an oath of allegiance to its new commander-in-chief, and the last remnants of Germany’s democratic government were dismantled to make way for Hitler’s Third Reich. The Fuhrer assured his people that the Third Reich would last for a thousand years, but Nazi Germany collapsed just 11 years later.”
Are we seeing the beginning of our Reich now? Read more Here. Remember, just like Obama told us and wrote about his plan to fundamentally transform America, Hitler wrote Mein Kampf (Official Nazi Translation), explaining his plan… and nobody listened either. But that is the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about or take on.
Right after Obama was elected, Pat Buchanan wrote a piece called the Weimar Solution and people ridiculed him, as they did Glenn Beck when he warned us what was coming. Somehow it doesn’t seem as funny now!
Lyndon LaRouche: “Obama to Become ‘Fuhrer’ After Debt Ceiling Vote” Is he right?
I am sure there will be a lot more to come and I will be doing updates… but wanted to get something out. Nobody has an actual copy of the bill yet, that I know of.
I will hope and pray that what tea party “ideal” supporter Marco Rubio says and believes will be the ultimate outcome… continued honest debate: Rubio: “This Debate Will Continue” but I would advise you all to consider and prepare for Alex Jones and Lyndon LaRouche’s predictions. As Glenn Beck has said many times, “I’d rather be prepared and be wrong… and would be glad to admit it than have been right and not prepared or shared my thoughts with others, so they could prepare!”
Since yesterday the reports of huge food orders by the government through FEMA, mass troop movements across the country and concern about the Super Committee being able to make decisions to vote up or down on without filibusters, amendments or even much debate on a full gamut of topics including gun control… or gun confiscation is frightening and has filled the blogosphere with comments by people in the know like Judge Andrew Napolitano, Senator Rand Paul, Congressman and GOP Candidate Ron Paul to name just a few… yet the mainstream media has been virtually silent… again. There comes a time when we all must wonder, question and stand or we will be held accountable for the results of our inaction if we didn’t.
When I heard about the powerful Super Committee, a Super Congress, basically only accountable to Obama… the vision of the 2008 Obamessiah, as so many of his followers saw him, with 12-disciples flashed in my head. Someone will surely come up with that visual once the 12 are chosen. (Harry Reid, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi will each choose 3 members of the committee).
Prayers up my friends!
