Bizzarro Reid

Harry Reid is captured perfectly in this cartoon. He has made some completely nonsensical statements. He is intentionally vilifying ordinary Americans who are exercising their rights. He call us ‘Terrorists’. He sides with real terrorists and calls them ‘Freedom Fighters’.

Harry Reid is a sick man and he is playing a sick and evil game. He needs to be recalled.

“Are You Really Going To Shoot These People?”

It is fascinating. people from all over the country and from all walks of life have witnessed the over reacting BLM near the Bundy ranch. Not many actually were there and reported back. Those who did have nearly all come to support what Cliven Bundy is doing.

Harry Reid is calling the Bundy supporters domestic terrorists. That kind of rhetoric is designed to inflame rather than solve the problem. Reid is an evil man.

This is a film maker from New York. He visited the Bundy’s during their confrontation with the BLM. He understands that the conflict is not about a tortoise or grazing fees. It’s about federal overreach. The law is wrong and needs to be changed. The Bundy’s and their supporters were truly prepared to die to see it changed. So, apparently, was the film maker.

Dinesh D’Souza was there as well. He also supports the efforts of the Bundy supporters. He says they were facing ‘Domestic terror from their own government’.

Finally, here is video of a neighbor of the Bundy’s, a farmer, who also understands what is at stake. She also supports their efforts. This video was shot at a town hall meeting.

Understanding Newspeak

For those who may not know, Newspeak is the official language the government imposes on the people in George Orwell’s book 1984. Wikipedia says this about Newspeak:

Newspeak is the fictional language in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by George Orwell. It is a controlled language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit freedom of thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as “thoughtcrime.”

Those of us who read the book never expected anything like Newspeak to actually become mandatory – but it has. Here are a few examples:

Bob Owens Hits Another One Outta The Park

It’s his post at Bearing Arms. He calls it, “The Cancer, The Militia, And Cliven Bundy“. Owens agrees that Bundy broke the law but he says that that doesn’t make him wrong. Why? As with so many laws in the past it’s the law that is wrong this time.

After listening to many opinions and perspectives I’m coming closer to drawing some conclusions. For starters, as a legal matter, Cliven Bundy doesn’t have a legal legal to stand on.

That doesn’t remotely mean that he’s wrong.

From the moment the ink was dry on the parchment creating it, the federal government has used, abused, and expanded its power into a grotesque mockery of what the Founders envisioned. The federal government was never supposed to occupy more land than it absolutely needed to function, much less control huge swathes of entire states. They have made their tyranny “legal” by passing laws and writing regulations, but legality is merely a concept… it doesn’t mean that laws stripping power from the citizenry are moral, or constitutional, or that we should blindly obey them.

The subjugation of women was legal. Slavery was legal. Most importantly, the democides of more than 262 million souls by their own governments in the 20th century alone after first disarming them were legal.

In far too many instances, and especially in regards to corrupted governments, “legal” merely means that a self-serving government has given itself carte blanche to pillage the citizenry—and kill them, if needed—in the name of itself.

You can ask President Obama what he thinks of “mere legality” and the importance of following laws as they are written.

It has become painfully obvious that the most apt metaphor describing our bloated and out-of-control government is that of an aggressive cancer. It started out small, but it inevitably, irresistibly began corrupting the body that created and sustains it. It is arguably in an end phase, a final burst of destructive energy, where it threatens to destroy the host entirely and itself in the process.”

bundy-ranch-e1397658561706

Senate Majority Leader and Nevada Senator Harry Reid warns us that the battle over the ranch is far from over, and that the citizenry cannot be allowed to win:

Reid tells News4′s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said.

In Reid’s diseased mind, the government must win, because the government must always win. The cancer must be fed.

It’s worth noting that the actions of the BLM and federal authorities in this case have been stated to be their method of “resolving” the case. I think Stefan Molyneux of Freedom Radio put it succinctly when he said that their method of resolution boils down to:

Give us all your cattle to pay the fines we imposed on you to save a tortoise we are currently euthanizing… Or we will shoot your family.”

The situation at the Bundy Ranch is not over. There exists the very real possibility of the federal government advancing yet again with heavily armed agents against the ranch and those who refuse to concede to the federal government’s “legal” tyranny.

If they commit such a crime—and a clear moral crime it will be, regardless of the so-called legality of it—the federal government could very well find itself under attack across the nation from citizens who have simply had enough of the cancer that is a corrupt and tyrannical government that has shown a willingness to throw constitutionality and legality to the wind in order to advance its own agenda of consolidating power and stripping the Republic of even the illusion of liberty.

Never has the need for a well-armed citizenry been more apparent.”

NRO: “Bundy vs. BLM: A Visceral Reaction”

I think this National Review writer gets it. He has put into words what many of us couldn’t. Throughout the Bundy stand-off the question we had wasn’t. “Did Bundy break the law”. He admits that he did.

The concern instead has been about the fierceness and violent way the feds reacted.

Bundy’s cattle should have been prevented from grazing on public lands if the fees had not been paid. Instead the BLM destroyed his property, killed two prize bulls, threw a woman to the ground, and tasered at least one of the Bundy’s.

dead bull

Now they are talking about an attack on the Bundy ranch. For what?

To intimidate them and others; to display a level of force that discourages others from resisting. Simple as that.

One can be a supporter of the rule of law and still recoil in anger and disgust from the militarized display of force by the federal government toward Clive Bundy.

The disproportionate nature of the government’s reaction to Bundy suggests this has less to do with delinquent grazing fees than it does with the selective assertion of raw governmental power — sending a message not just to Bundy or a disfavored group, but to America as a whole. The same federal government that deploys Bureau of Land Management shooters tricked out like SEAL Team 6 directs Border Patrol agents to flee from aggressive illegal immigrants. The same federal government that would fire and prosecute federal agents who physically restrain border-crossers sends agents to tase and sic German shepherds on ordinary Americans exercising First Amendment rights.

One can acknowledge that the government has the right — in fact, the responsibility — to enforce the law, yet object that this administration habitually enforces the law in a capricious, arbitrary, and discriminatory manner. They imperiously go after a Bundy while excusing scores of miscreants whose get-out-of-jail-free card is membership in a politically-correct class. They regularly waive legal requirements out of sheer political expediency. They fail to defend duly enacted statutes with which they, the enlightened, disagree.”

“Exclusive: Sources Inside The BLM and Las Vegas Metro Say Feds Are Planning A Raid On Bundy Home”

Sheriff Mack

According to Sheriff Mack they are planning to raid the home of the Bundy’s and those of their children.

Now if true why would they do this? Bundy has armed guards all day, every day. This would be a terrible, bloody scene.

What have any of the Bundy’s done to justify actions like these? This is deadly force and it’s likely to be met with deadly force. What judge would sign a warrant to do this? Or is it a warrantless raid?

Hope n’ Change doesn’t actually have a lot to add to today’s cartoon because it pretty much sums up exactly what we believe the Obamacare strategy to be – a deliberate fustercluck designed to force people into an unworkable system and destroy the private insurance agency. The eventual goal being a single payer system for everyone…and cost-saving euthanasia (“painkillers not pacemakers” in the president’s words) for the old, infirm, and inconvenient.”

Barnhardt: “There is Nothing New Under the Sun. Know Your History”

Here is a little history from Ann Barnhardt.

FDR

Did you know that President Franklin D. Roosevelt used the US Army to forcefully remove the CEO of Montgomery Ward in Chicago? Did you know that he seized the Philadelphia Transportation Company and installed US Army Major General Philip Hayes as CEO?

Barnhardt has studied history, unlike today’s public school students. She reminds us of the actions taken by what she calls the most dangerous President until Barack Obama.

If FDR had been ten years younger than he was and had lived, I honestly think that he could have become a full-blown dictator. FDR died in April of 1945 after having just been sworn in to his FOURTH term as President. Harry Truman then became president and after the conclusion of the War appointed the Hoover Commission which promptly recommended the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution which limited Presidents to two terms. Truman knew that we had dodged a bullet with Roosevelt and made certain that a tyrannical dynasty like FDR’s would never happen again.”

Of course in these days of instant communication and nearly instant transportation it wouldn’t take four terms to complete the ‘Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America’.

Ebony: “When Doctors Slam the Doors on the Newly Insured”

waiting line

I can not see how this is any different than it was before the ACA – except that there are now many more people on Medicaid than there were.

As a proud new beneficiary of the Affordable Health Care Act, I’d like to report that I am doctorless. Ninety-six. Ninety-six is the number of soul crushing rejections that greeted me as I attempted to find one. It’s the number of physicians whose secretaries feigned empathy while rehearsing the “I’m so sorry” line before curtly hanging up. You see, when the rush of the formerly uninsured came knocking, doctors in my New Jersey town began closing their doors and promptly telling insurance companies that they had no room for new patients.”

The writer begins by lamenting that she is having trouble finding a doctor even though she has a Medicaid card. This has been the norm since Medicaid was started. I know many people on Medicaid. They wait months for an appointment – once they find a doctor who will see them – and then wait more months for treatment. That is what socialized medicine is like.

In the second paragraph the writer reveals that her ‘Insurance’ is Medicaid. Then she presents this non-sequitur:

According to a study 33% of doctors are NOT accepting Medicaid. Here in Jersey, one has a dismal 40 percent chance of finding a doctor who accepts Medicaid – the lowest in the country.”

Huh? It sounds like your odds are better in ‘Jersey’ than in the rest of the country.

Later in the piece she notes the reason doctors don’t want to treat Medicaid patients:

However, physicians say they are rejecting Medicaid patients with good reason. One doctor explains, “the state reimburses… only about $23.50 for a basic office visit [of those insured by Medicaid], less than half of what [I get] from Medicare or private insurers.”

Now that makes sense. But how is it the fault of the doctors? Sounds to me like it is cause by Medicaid’s administrators who set the payment levels.

Eric Holder Publicly Threatens Congressman Gohmert

Holy crap! The Attorney General is threatening a sitting Congressman. The Obama administration is getting bolder and more confrontational.

Holder to Gohmert on Contempt: ‘You Don’t Want to Go There, Buddy’

(CNSNews.com) – Attorney General Eric Holder clashed with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday, telling Gohmert, “You don’t want to go there” when Gohmert suggested “contempt” was “not a big deal” to Holder.
“You don’t want to go there, buddy. You don’t want to go there, okay?” Holder told Gohmert.”

Reminds me of this image:

Will Gohmert and the House leadership react?

Update:

HOLDER: GOHMERT DISAGREEMENT EXAMPLE OF UNPRECEDENTED RACISM AGAINST HIM AND OBAMA

At Al Sharpton’s annual National Action Network Annual convention, Attorney General Eric Holder spoke about civil rights and referenced his back-and-forth at Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, with Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX)…

“I have been proud to stand along side of you in supporting efforts to advance the cause of justice that has always been at the center of this , this administrations work I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and lasting reforms, even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted ugly adversity. And if you don’t believe that, you look at the way …forget about me… forget about me , you look at the way the Attorney General of the Untied States was treated yesterday by a House committee. Had nothing to do with me what Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment ”

“Ruby Ridge-style standoff brewing as Bundy says he is prepared to be killed”

Cliven Bundy is brilliant. He has raised the specter of Ruby Ridge and Waco before the fact. Both were overreaches by federal government and over reactions that resulted in the death of people who did not need to die.

Bundy and his wife do not need to die. They have lived and worked their area for generations. They are fighting for their rights to continue to do so. The response by the feds is to send ‘…dozens of armed federal agents…’.

They are trying to intimidate him into giving up. He has said, “No”. It’s the feds’ move. He knows it and is prepared for it. The only thing the feds have left is brute force. If they use it it will be a mistake like it was on Ruby Ridge and at Waco.

A Ruby Ridge-style standoff is brewing in Nevada, where dozens of armed federal agents are closing in on cattle rancher Cliven Bundy over claims that Bundy has allowed his cows to graze illegally on government land, endangering a protected species of tortoise.

Vowing to take a stand for, “your liberty and freedom,” Bundy says he is prepared to be killed as authorities surround a 600,000 acre section of public land as a result of Bundy violating a 1993 Bureau of Land Management ruling which changed grazing rights in order to protect the endangered desert tortoise.

“With all these rangers and all this force that is out here, they are only after one man right now. They are after Cliven Bundy. Whether they want to incarcerate me or whether they want to shoot me in the back, they are after me. But that is not all that is at stake here. Your liberty and freedom is at stake,” Bundy said.

Bundy’s refusal to recognize federal authority over the land under dispute and his failure to pay tens of thousands of dollars in grazing fees stems from his assertion that his family’s history trumps bureaucracy.

“My forefathers have been up and down the Virgin Valley ever since 1877. All these rights I claim have been created through pre-emptive rights and beneficial use of the forage and water. I have been here longer. My rights are before the BLM even existed,” Bundy said.”

Feds deploy snipers, arrest man for filming outside First Amendment area

On Sunday, the Logandale, Nev.-based Moapa Valley Progress reported that Dave Bundy, son of rancher Cliven Bundy, was arrested while taking photographs of his family’s cattle that are being rounded up by federal agents. According to the report, Bundy was violating an arbitrary “First Amendment” zone that had been established by federal agents. Worse yet, federal agents also deployed snipers against the man.

“He was doing nothing but standing there and filming the landscape,” Ryan Bundy said of his brother Dave. “We were on the state highway, not even off of the right-of-way. Even if they want to call [the area that we were filming] federal land; which it’s not; we weren’t even on it. We were on the road.”

“They also had four snipers on the hill above us all trained on us. We were doing nothing besides filming the area,” Ryan added.

Bundy also said federal agents told them they had no First Amendment rights except in the areas so marked.

So. Federal agents think they can determine where we have Constitutional rights and where we don’t. This has the potential for becoming deadly really fast.

How many times have you heard the warning, “There will be no more free Waco’s”? What is behind that warning?

We shall see.

Update The Bundy’s have a website. It chronicles the confrontation. You can find it here.

Update An editorial in the Las Vegas Review Journal calls for the Feds to back off.

Rancher stands up; feds should back off

A rancher needs big brass ones to stand up to Washington. Not only is the federal government the country’s largest and least competent landowner, it’s also the country’s largest police force and largest law firm, wrapped with red tape into one unflinching leviathan.

Cliven Bundy has big brass ones, all right. And the belt buckle and hat to go with them. But Clark County’s last cattle rancher knew his defiance would one day come to this. After more than 20 years of being dared to use their heavy hands, Bureau of Land Management officials and federal authorities say they’re finally going to seize and auction Mr. Bundy’s livestock.”

The editorial ends thus:

The most obvious solution, releasing federal land to local control, won’t happen overnight. So we offer a final chance at compromise: Have Washington stand down and send the zealots of the Center for Biological Diversity to collect the cattle, instead.”

The paper seems to be the only entity interested in compromise.

Didn’t Make The Obamacare Deadline? No Insurance For You.

There are a lot of details in all those thousands of pages. Pelosi was right. Now we’re finding out what was in the bill.

From the AP via Yahoo:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s more fallout from the health care law: Until now, customers could walk into an insurance office or go online to buy standard health care coverage any time of year. Not anymore.

Many people who didn’t sign up during the government’s open enrollment period that ended Monday will soon find it difficult or impossible to get insured this year, even if they go directly to a private company and money is no object. For some it’s already too late.

With limited exceptions, insurers are refusing to sell to individuals after the enrollment period for HealthCare.gov and the state marketplaces. They will lock out the young and healthy as well as the sick or injured. Those who want to switch plans also are affected. The next wide-open chance to enroll comes in November for coverage in 2015.

It’s a little-noted consequence of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, which requires nearly all Americans to be insured or pay a fine and requires insurers to accept people with health problems.”

Voter Fraud In North Carolina

35,570 Voters With Same Last Name and DOB Voted in Two States

voting booths

Remember the story of the Diebold machine hacking? It appears that there is evidence of widespread fraud coming out of North Carolina. If it is happening there it is likely happening everywhere.

The North Carolina Board of Elections has discovered THOUSANDS of residents who voted in both North Carolina and another state in the 2012 elections.
Pajamas Media reported:

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.

** 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
** 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
** 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

The second point is key, as double voting is election fraud under state and federal statutes. Punishment for double voting in federal elections can include jail time.”

Yet Another Nail

This is all part of the plan. After a few more people die due to Obamacare there will be an outcry for something different. There will no longer be health insurers. The only thing left to do will be single-payer, government run universal health care.

Las Vegas (CBS LAS VEGAS) – Just days after the deadline to enroll for insurance coverage through Nevada Health Link, the first class-action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of residents who say they signed up and paid their premiums – but were never given coverage.

Law firm Callister & Associates filed the lawsuit on behalf of Larry Basich, who signed up for state health insurance and paid premiums as far back as November, but then was not covered following a Jan. 3 triple bypass procedure that saw his $400,000 in medical expenses passed between the wrong insurance companies, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court of Nevada on Tuesday alleges gross negligence and failure to do due diligence against the state of Nevada, the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange (which runs Nevada Health Link), and the company that won the contract to build the exchange, Xerox.”

“Obama Food Police Propose Sending Daily Text Messages to Fat People”

This is so filled with images. I don’t mean about overweight people. I mean about the ‘Boards’ who decide who is fat, how much overweight you are before you are labeled obese, and what can be done about those who lose their excess pounds. ‘Boards’ in positions like that Always become corrupt. But maybe that is the whole idea.

I can think of few ways to anger potential voters that would be more effective than nagging them every day about their weight.

fat bastard

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will meet soon and discuss new recommendations for healthy eating. One suggestion is to send daily text messages to fat people.

The Obama administration plans to send text messages to fat people and offer online weigh-ins to help the country’s obese population get down to what a cartel of career academics considers to be a healthy weight.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee–the folks responsible for bringing you the food pyramid–is in the midst of a series of meetings that will determine the government’s official recommendations for healthy eating. The committee meets every 5 years, and this time, the Obama administration has stacked it exclusively with professors from America’s finest ivory-tower institutions. And these professors have a delicious casserole of nanny-statism to serve you.”

How Bad Were The Obamacare Numbers Fudged?

Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare – but study shows just 858,000 newly insured Americans have paid up!

Liar

Liar

Once again we must get the news from outside the United States. From the UK Daily Mail:

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America’s health care system ‘a lot better’ in a Rose Garden press conference.

But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality.

Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.”

Police will be raiding houses without notice and without warrants… just to see if you are renting out a room.

Homeowners in the Long Island community of Westbury (pop. 15,000) have had their private property rights abridged to the point where they cannot even make autonomous decisions about what happens inside their own homes.

The police “Housing Enforcement Unit” will abide by a “aggressive zero tolerance” policy for homeowners who allow so-called “illegal tenants” in their homes.

The cops will sweep through communities and conduct housing inspections “without notice.”

A Brief View Of A Progressive Utopia

This short video was made in a Soviet grocery store in the 1980′s. It illustrates several things. The first thing that you see is how little was available to the shoppers. Then there is the quality. The women at the meat counter find opened packages. They smell them to see if the product is spoiled.

Toward the end you begin to see in the eyes of the shoppers what is meant when someone says we are becoming Russians. Their eyes tell us that they have seen this all before – many times. They also know that it will always be this way. It fills you with sadness.

A fairly common experience for Russian citizenry under the old socialist system in the USSR. Truly a Progressive paradise.

Give Obama what he wants and this is what we’ll all get.

The dumbed-down masses today being brainwashed in Left-wing universities across America are not taught the truth about what full-blown socialism or communism does to a society.

Talk to anyone who lived in the Soviet Union during the cold war years and they can attest to the miseries of this unworkable and failed system of government.”

The White House Calls This A Milepost

Reuters via Yahoo:

“Obamacare enrollment tops six million as deadline looms: White House”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More than 6 million people have now signed up for private insurance plans under President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law known as Obamacare, reflecting a surge in enrollments days before the March 31 deadline, the White House said on Thursday.

The milestone gives the White House some ammunition to counter Republican critics, who have described the program as an expensive flop in the build-up to midterm congressional campaigns in November, when Democratic control of the U.S. Senate is at stake.”

I call it a drop in the bucket. Six million out of more than 300 million Americans is two percent – and that’s if the numbers are right.

This administration, with the assistance of the Democrats, the media, and many Republicans, has fudged numbers at every turn. Whether it is ACA sign-up figures or votes, the fraud continues to grow.

We had a post the other day about a woman who admitted to voting for Obama six times in 2012. How many fraudulent O-care sign-ups are there? And how many of these alleged policies have been paid for? And now we find out that people who think they are signed up and have paid their premiums are not able to get care.

The Affordable care act has never been designed to work. It does not provide health care and is not affordable.

Senator Harry Reid said people were lying about the trouble they were having with the ACA. We know who the real liars are. They are the people like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al.
