Danger! Free Speech Ahead

Month: August, 2012

Allen West

Allen West is in many ways the conscience of the Tea Party Movement .  A twenty year military veteran defending the United States and our Constitution in combat deployments to Iraq; from a military family—his father served in World War II, his brother in Vietnam. Even his mother was a civilian employer for the Marine Corps.

Allen West received his Bachelor’s degree from University of Tennessee; a Master’s Degree in Political Science from Kansas State University  and a Master’s of Military Arts and Sciences from US army Command and General Staff Officer College.  This is a man who understands our History and our Military and our Constitution.

Allen West is a man who speaks the Truth even when it would be more “politic” not to.  He is exactly the kind of Person this country needs now: he has the Courage to stand against  Republican Rinos and  Democrat Socialists. He has the courage to call them as he sees them  We all know that there are Politicians in America who believe in Socialist principles: central planning as opposed to the Free Market; Redistribution of Wealth—both concepts belonging to Socialism/Communism.  We need to stop being afraid to call things by their names. When Allen West told people there were 80 or so members of the Communist Party in Congress, he was telling the truth.  How many of us remember the Maxine Waters video where she says that she would be all about “Socializing the oil industry”; but she stops herself after saying the word Socializing, realizing that she is “letting the cat out of the bag”.  Actually if we  Americans had paid more attention over the years to our Representatives, we would have seen by their actions that there are some who  believe in Communist ideas. Remember when Congressman Danny Davis received an award from the CPUSA? There was a post interview on video which I see has been wiped from the internet.   We have just been asleep and Congress has gotten used to us being asleep.  I am grateful to the Tea Party and particularly to Allen West for waking us all up.

During Black History Month, Allen West had the Courage to stand on the House floor and tell the truth about the History of the Republican Party: that since its inception the Republican Party has always stood for the rights of African Americans and that regarding the 14th Amendment—every vote for it was a Republican and every vote against it was a Democrat.  It was the Democrats who used poll taxes  and literacy tests to intimate Blacks and keep them from voting.

Then why would the Republican Party in Florida gerrymander West’s district to make it easier for a Democrat to win and  run someone against him in the primary as well?

Here’s what Armstrong Williams has to say about that in an article called:

“Allen West Betrayed”

Can someone please explain to me why the Republican party of Florida allowed Congressman Allen West to be gerrymandered out of his congressional district?

West is the most prominent and best-spoken elected conservative in the United States. He’s a motorcycle-riding war hero, a passionate Christian, and a patriot. He’s the first black Republican Congressman from Florida since Reconstruction, and he is as strong a vice presidential candidate as anyone. Now he might not even have his seat in Congress next year. Why do we want to take one of our best players out of the game?

It would make sense if this were Massachusetts or California: if a Democrat-majority state had tried to force out Congressman West, we could easily see why. But this is a battleground state, and one whose legislature is run by his fellow Republicans. While some might think that it might be better to have someone safe, someone timid, in such an environment, I disagree wholeheartedly: it is precisely in such tight races that we need someone who can motivate the base to show up on Election Day, and someone who can get people excited. If our candidates don’t look any different from the Democrats, what would be the point of voting for them?

Florida is going to be perhaps the most important state in this year’s elections. It is the fourth-largest in the union, and a toss-up swing state where Republicans have a huge majority of the Congressional delegation. Its only rival in electoral significance is Ohio. Do we Republicans want powerful voices representing the party in these states, or weak ones?

What makes West different from other Republican congressmen? Precisely what makes him a rock star: his courage, his eloquence, and his integrity. The mighty Establishment can’t control him; they fear him. His only fault is that he didn’t embrace the Republican establishment when their views were contrary to those of the Tea Party.

As he said to Nancy Pelosi, “Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”

And now this current Political Ad which shows Allen West hitting women and children—a racist ad if ever there was one. But you don’t hear anything from Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. WHY? Because when the African American is a Conservative the Rules of the game change. Because it really has nothing to do with Racism, it is really all about Democrats maintaining their base of voters which they are terrified to allow to think for themselves. Imagine 100’s more Allen Wests, Thomas Sowells, Star Parkers, Deneen Borellis, CL Bryants.Walter Williams.

And why isn’t someone in Florida addressing the fact that this Political Ad against Allen West is being run by an organization which includes the father of his Democrat opponent and that opponent has contributed money to that organization running the ad.  It sounds corrupt!

Here is Allen West’s Response to this Vile Ad:

I spent my life in uniform fighting for our great nation and protecting all Americans.  The ad being run against me by my opponent’s family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible. It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation. This ad reflects the sad state of politics in our Republic with those who seek to destroy a person’s character to cover for their lack of intellectual ability and integrity.

If you believe in the Constitution; if you believe in smaller government; if you believe in Truth –Please support and fight for Allen West in Florida 22. America Needs Allen West!

Obama Did Gut Welfare Reform–Here’s the explanation

Romney has a new political Ad in which he accuses Obama of gutting Clinton’s Welfare Reform Legislation and returning it to just welfare–no work for welfare.  Here is the AD:

Obama claims this ad is a lie and WaPo agreeing with Obama has given the ad 4 Pinocchios.Obama claims he is within the letter of the law to allow states to have more flexibility with regard to what is allowed as “work” in order to collect a welfare check.

Both Heritage and Dick Morris who helped to write the legislation agree that Obama is lying.  This is another case of Obama taking advantage of situations where he thinks (probably correctly) that he can pull the wool over the eyes of his supporters and maybe even some independents.

Please read the explanation here in Heritage as to how Obama changed the law with a stroke of his pen:

 

Obama Guts Welfare Reform

Robert Rector and Kiki Bradley

July 12, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Today, the Obama Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an official policy directive rewriting the welfare reform law of 1996. The new policy guts the federal work requirements that were the foundation of the reform law. The Obama directive bludgeons the letter and intent of the actual reform legislation.

Welfare Reform under Clinton

Welfare reform replaced the old Aid to Families with Dependent Children with a new program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). The underlying concept of welfare reform was that able-bodied adults should be required to work or prepare for work as a condition of receiving welfare aid.

The welfare reform law is often characterized as simply giving state governments more flexibility in operating welfare programs. This is a serious misunderstanding. While new law (the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996) did grants states more flexibility in some respects, the core of the act was the creation of rigorous new federal work standards that state governments were required to implement.

The welfare reform law was very successful. In the four decades prior to welfare reform, the welfare caseload never experienced a significant decline. But, in the four years after welfare reform, the caseload dropped by nearly half. Employment surged and child poverty among affected groups plummeted. The driving force behind these improvements was the rigorous new federal work requirements contained in the TANF law.

Obama’s Trick to Get Around Work Requirements

Today the Obama Administration issued a new directive stating that the traditional TANF work requirements can be waived or overridden by a legal device called the section 1115 waiver authority under the Social Security law (42 U.S.C. 1315).

Section 1115 states that “the Secretary may waive compliance with any of the requirements” of specified parts of various laws. But this is not an open-ended authority: Any provision of law that can be waived under section 1115 must be listed in section 1115 itself. The work provisions of the TANF program are contained in section 407 (entitled, appropriately, “mandatory work requirements”). Critically, this section, as well as most other TANF requirements, are deliberately not listed in section 1115; they are not waiveable.

In establishing TANF, Congress deliberately exempted or shielded nearly all of the TANF program from the section 1115 waiver authority. They did not want the law to be rewritten at the whim of Health and Human Services (HHS) bureaucrats. Of the roughly 35 sections of the TANF law, only one is listed as waiveable under section 1115. This is section 402.

Section 402 describes state plans—reports that state governments must file to HHS describing the actions they will undertake to comply with the many requirements established in the other sections of the TANF law. The authority to waive section 402 provides the option to waive state reporting requirements only, not to overturn the core requirements of the TANF program contained in the other sections of the TANF law.

The new Obama dictate asserts that because the work requirements, established in section 407, are mentioned as an item that state governments must report about in section 402, all the work requirements can be waived. This removes the core of the TANF program; TANF becomes a blank slate that HHS bureaucrats and liberal state bureaucrats can rewrite at will.

Congressional Research Service: “There Are No TANF Waivers”

In a December 2001 document, “Welfare Reform Waivers and TANF,” the non-partisan Congressional Research Service clarified that the limited authority to waive state reporting requirement in section 402 does not grant authority to override work and other major requirements in the other sections of the TANF law (sections that were deliberately not listed under the section 1115 waiver authority):

Technically, there is waiver authority for TANF state plan requirement; however, [the] major TANF requirements are not in state plans. Effectively, there are no TANF waivers.

Obviously, if the Congress had wanted HHS to be able to waive the TANF work requirements laid out in section 407, it would have listed that section as waiveable under section 1115. It did not do that.

Define “Work”…

In the past, state bureaucrats have attempted to define activities such as hula dancing, attending Weight Watchers, and bed rest as “work.” These dodges were blocked by the federal work standards. Now that the Obama Administration has abolished those standards, we can expect “work” in the TANF program to mean anything but work.

The new welfare dictate issued by the Obama Administration clearly guts the law. The Administration tramples on the actual legislation passed by Congress and seeks to impose its own policy choices—a pattern that has become all too common in this Administration.

The result is the end of welfare reform.

Just in case you are confronted with someone saying that what Obama did was OK–now you know the truth.

Moslem Extremists are willing to Die for Hatred of Our Country

Destroying America is the intent of Moslem Extremists.  They are coming into our country through our porous borders, both Canada and Mexico.  They have been invited into the White House and the Pentagon.

In a discussion between three ex-government officials, a journalist and Glenn Beck, the topic of why Moslem Extremists are being permitted to infiltrate our country. And why when this topic is broached by any government official, it is immediately called out as Islamophobia.

Joe Schmitz, a former Inspector General defended Michele Bachmann, Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Tim Rooney, and Lynn Westmoreland; it is their Constitutional duty as Representatives of the people to warn the people if there are dangerous people in our government or infiltrating our government.

There was in fact a Moslem Extremist who had infiltrated our Chaplain Program in the Pentagon  According to Schmitz, who was an Inspector General at the time, he recommended to the Pentagon that they check these Chaplains, regardless of religion, with the FBI.  He was told that the Pentagon officials were fearful of doing this because it was a First Amendment issue of Religion and that they would have to rely on IRS checks for these individuals. This was, according to Schmitz, “Political Correctness run amok”. This occurred sometime before 2005.

Andrew McCarthy, a Federal Prosecutor who successfully prosecuted the blind sheikh, explained that his prosecution was based on the fact that the sheikh expounded on doctrinal commands of the Koran and inspired Moslems to commit terrorist acts.  McCarthy was given an award for his prosecutorial skills  in 1995; today, he would be considered an Islamophobe and the speech he used in presenting his case against the sheikh would be considered defamation of the Islam religion. Today, our own government supports criminalizing this kind of speech.

Steven Coughlin, a Pentagon Islamic Specialist, explained how this change in attitude and law came about in such a short period of time (15 years). In the late 1980’s, the International Institute of Islamic Thought (Triple I T) created a word: “Islamophobia”.  This word was adopted as a “Brand” by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, which is the second largest international governmental organization in the world—second only to the United Nations—and in fact, has operational control of the UN. The OIC represents the entire Moslem world at the Head of State level.

In 2005 the OIC developed a 10 year plan to make Defamation of Islam a crime defined according to Islamic Law in every jurisdiction.  The Cartoon of Mohammed and the burning of the Korans in Afghanistan both came under this law. UN Resolution 1618 was the codification of this law; and on July 15, 2011, the US State Department  agreed to help pass this resolution. That resolution passed in December 2011.

Most of the Moslem advisors coming to the US are members of the Moslem Brotherhood.  Louay Safi, a former Pentagon top Islamic Advisor, was involved with many Moslem Brotherhood front groups.  He was one of two endorsers of the Moslem Chaplain Pentagon program referred to above. He was associated with the International Institute of Islamic Thought as well as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)  and he was training our troops regarding Islam at Fort Bliss when the Fort Hood shooting occurred.   Today he is the Political Director for the Syrian National Council which is the Syrian Moslem Brotherhood front group running the war against Assad.

ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case (the largest case in the US in which organizations were found quilty of contributing Millions of dollars to terrorist organizations.)  Safi was also implicated in the Sami AlArian trial .  In a book he published in the US, Safi  revealed the Moslem Brotherhood strategies for infiltration  in the US.

In a document written on October 19, 2011, sent to John Brennan at the White House and signed by every Moslem Brotherhood Front group in America, a Purge and Reeducation were called for. “All Federal government training materials should be Purged of biased Materials and FBI agents need to be reeducated”

Glenn asked the question: Why is this being allowed to occur in the US? The answer from McCarthy and Schmitz was the government has “outsourced” its duty to know these things to These Islamic advisors. The government has no political will to vet these advisors.

Just last week a State Department official (I think) was questioned in the House about who we are at war with.  He refused to say that we are at war wit Violent Moslem Extremists, insisting that Al Qaeda was not a Radical Moslem Extremist group. He kept insisting that it was a horrible group of murderers; but Radical Islam had nothing to do with it.  Officials in this administration refuse to see that terrorism is ideological; they believe that it is caused by something else–preferably something they don’t like; ie Gitmo, Israel etc.

Andrew McCarthy explained that the Moslem Brotherhood  not only understand our culture but they understand our language and the meanings of our words; they use this information to hide their ulterior meanings, and thereby use our words against us.  In 1993 the  Moslem Brotherhood wrote the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights which was ratified by the OIC and approved by the United Nations.   When they say “Human Rights”, Moslems mean Human Rights brought forth through Sharia Law. They don’t mean what we mean by “Human Rights” .

They also don’t have the same meaning for Democracy as we do.  The Moslem Brotherhood mean using the process of Democracy to impose Sharia Law. And because of Sharia Law, Islam is not just a religion. It is an entire social system which controls every facet of one’s life.  By “Freedom” and “Justice” the Moslem Brotherhood mean “Freedom”  from the laws of man and “Justice” according to Sharia.

It is valid for our Representatives to question why these “terrorists” are permitted in the Pentagon, in the FBI buildings, and in the White House and to ask Inspector Generals if proper vetting has been done of such individuals. Andrew McCarthy explains it this way: these “former” terrorists are now part of an elected organization and represent their governments.  It is like a KGB officer taking off his uniform and becoming the President of Russia. To many people, terrorists are regarded as Resistance Fighters; to those people complaints of vetting procedures seem silly.

However, it is necessary to remember that in 1991 the Moslem Brotherhood called for a Grand Jihad that would destroy Western Civilization from within; a Jihad that would eliminate all religions except for Islam.  Are they in the process of this Grand Jihad?
