i  got  ONE NERVE LEFT  and  you're  on  it .

House Ethics Committee Stonewalled by Visclosky, Pete’s Pay-to-Play Case kicked up to the Dept. of Justice.

The NWI Times ran an article today reporting on the current status of Pete Visclosky’s ethics probe.

The board of the Office of Congressional Ethics voted unanimously Thursday to give the U.S. Department of Justice some of the evidence it collected in its investigation of whether several members of Congress, including U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Ind., traded government appropriations for campaign contributions.

Visclosky has been accused of helping clients of the now-defunct PMA lobbying firm get multimillion-dollar federal spending earmarks in exchange for campaign contributions. The PMA group was Visclosky’s top fund raising source for several years.

The 13-term congressman has denied any wrongdoing.

Following an investigation, the nonpartisan, independent Office of Congressional Ethics found there was probable cause to believe Visclosky “solicited or accepted contributions or other items of value in exchange for or because of an official act.”

However, the House Committee on Standards of Professional Conduct, consisting of 10 members of the House, ended its separate investigation in February and said Visclosky and six other representatives tied to the PMA group had not violated any House rules.

Pete Visclosky refused to cooperate with the House investigation. Plus, the House ethics committee does not have the power to issue subpoenas or compel witnesses or lawmakers to testify. They are toothless, operating from a ‘he said, she said’ basis, and we all know how effective that course of action is in the legal system.  Visclosky stonewalled, refusing to talk about who did what and he did not assist in the investigation in any manner.

From NY Times: ”Today I received absolute vindication,” he said in a statement. ”This comes as no surprise because there was never anything to justify a review in the first place.”

In a statement, Visclosky said of the latest developments, “I am a strong proponent of transparency in the legislative process and in any instance where a member, staffer, lobbyist, contractor or anyone, for that matter, participated in inappropriate or illegal activities, they should be fully investigated.”

Yeah, right, “strong proponent of transparency…and in any instance [anyone who]…participated in inappropriate or illegal activities, they should be fully investigated.”  Hello Pete. YOU are being investigated.  Pete Visclosky claims he is innocent and if that is truly the case then why doesn’t Pete tow a little red wagon full of papers and records to the Office of Congressional Ethics and the DOJ and say, “Have at it”?  To top that off, the House was limited to only looking at evidence from March 2008 forward and most of the crimes (ya, I’ll name it, call it what it is) occurred before that date. Let’s see, the House Ethics panel couldn’t look at the crime from it’s beginning, left to read accounts only relating to the tail end of PMA’s existence, so they could never see the whole story and Pete stood there with his mouth taped shut, his hands in his pockets (his own pockets for the first time in a long while) and plays, “Catch me if you can.”.

I have heard and read many people say, “Pete was found not guilty of any crime” regarding this investigation and I am sure they are interpreting the inability of the House to make a case as the end of the story.  The House said that they did not have enough evidence (see restrictions above) and were punting the case upstairs to the Department of Justice (DOJ).  The DOJ has teeth. Do not get too excited about the DOJ taking on the case. Eric Holder is the top dog of all things DOJ and I think he will influence the outcomes to benefit the Democratic Party.
I find it interesting that PMA seems to be at the center of these investigations when K & L Gates was in the mix as well.  I ask all of you to do research on K & L Gates and tell us what you found regarding clients, money donated by K & L Gates to Visclosky and the contracts, grants and money given to K & L Gates clients.

Folks, we will never know how long this has been happening, Visclosky receives money for his campaign and in return he gives our money to the campaign donors.  It was not until 2007 that Pete was even required to put his name on his earmark requests. Me thinks he got away with more than a king’s ransom, spent billions of our money for his own gain, but we will never know. Pete will certainly not come clean about any of this as evidenced by his treatment of the House investigation.

Let’s hope the DOJ can make the little piggy squeal.

Here is a shot of John Murtha (bless his soul in earmark heaven), and Pete Visclosky. Those two make a pair, each vying for the top spot as the Most Corrupt Members of Congress.

George Janiec and Kim Krull throw Rob Pastore Under the Bus

(Hat Tip to Buzzcut)

Interesting, but not surprising to hear that Rob Pastore got the GOP shaft. Anyone who took the time to sit down and talk with Rob would know that he is a person adamant about cleaning corruption from the political system across the board. That position in its own right would cause some GOP insiders to embark upon a smear campaign because they themselves benefit from the dark side of GOP politics.

The sad part of this is that Hammond and Northwest Indiana has been harmed when Kim Krull, head of the Lake County GOP, removed an honest and ethical representative due to backroom chatter and pressure from the guys who feel threatened by Rob. It is said that George Janiec had a hand in this and I would imagine that not only did George put the squeeze on Rob, but that other guys within the GOP did also. Rob threatens their dark-side stranglehold in Lake County. George is running for Hammond Mayor, Rob Pastore is running for Hammond Mayor.  George Janiec wants power and control and has and will run for any office where he can get his name on the ballot. George is a career politician in that he wants to hold office, any office, not for the benefit of the people, but for his own ladder climbing ambition. Rob Pastore ran for US Congressional District 1 and now for Hammond Mayor in hopes of bringing ethical and honest representation to and for the people. People such as Rob are not well liked by the old GOP guard in that he messes with their game simply by stating that he would root out corruption.

So what do they do?  They bend Kim Krull’s ear and fill it with stories. My guess, considering what she did to Rob, is that she believed those self serving politicians and for her own benefit, acted from pressure with the party higher-ups. She threw Rob under the bus.  My guess is that some politically powerful politicians downstate put the squeeze on Kim to ditch Rob, not because he was wrong, but because he was right.  I will give Kim Krull a little tip: I have heard the conversations from some of the same guys who were whispering in your ear. Those guys do not have your, the people’s or the GOP interests in mind. I am occasionally in the same place as those guys and have heard them trash you, rant on your decisions and I have witnessed them, in your presence, pretend to respect you and tell you ‘helpful’ things; not because what they say is true, but because they want to influence your decisions. They use you. You are basically the most powerful GOP person in Lake County and if they can gain your trust they can thereby influence what happens around here and in all of NWI.

Don’t ask me to name names, I don’t roll like that. I’ll have my conversations regarding this with those guys the next time I see them. My point of even bringing this up is because I hate to see people used.  I know that everyone needs to ask for counsel, bring in differing opinions, but what we have in NWI is a bevy of power hungry guys who will say one thing and do the other and tell you lies to benefit their agenda. My advice to Kim is to clean house, stand back and reflect on who is telling you what and ask why they are telling you anything.  You lost a very good guy in Rob Pastore and it is very troubling that the dark side was able to get to you to push him out. The only people happy with your decision are Democrats and the sleazy GOP crowd. There is a reason why they went after Rob. Think about it.

You did not have to look too far during this recent primary to see and hear the gossip and workings of the crooked politicians. These are the same guys who planted candidates in the District 1 race, who walked door to door with 28 year old Peter Lindemulder III, who with no experience in the real world, but with buckets of money, managed to pull out a number two spot.  Imagine that, a young guy who is unable to relate with the common man, as he was raised in a privileged environment, comes in second. If Pete Lindemulder III had received the primary nod it would have been another guaranteed Visclosky win. He would have run a half-assed race against Pete V. because he and his business partners want Visclosky to stay in.  Lindemulder has a vested interest in keeping Petey Visclosky in office through Visclosky’s earmark handouts and favorable legislation to the waste management industry.  We know what will happen next; Peter Lindemulder will get a seat on the Lake County Waste Management board and wield the influence garnered by his father’s association with Allied Waste. Lindemulder was only running in the District 1 race to get name recognition. Nothing he will do will be in the people’s interest. Don’t be fooled by campaign rhetoric, Peter Lindemulder III would have been a younger version of Pete Visclosky.

Mark Leyva got the Democratic votes, again, and pulled down the #1 spot in District 1.  It was Operation Chaos in reverse; the Dems came out to vote Republican in the primary to make sure that Leyva won, again. Mark Leyva is a loser. He has lost every race for Pete’s seat since 1998.  Of course the Dems will vote for him in an open primary, there is nothing to lose, they switch back and vote Dem in the general, and  they have everything to gain by knowing that Mark will hand Pete  Visclosky another victory.  The only real race here is to see if Mark can set a record for losing  the longest and also give Visclosky the largest win percentage in Indiana history.

Valparaiso Mayor John Costas has to be in Pete Visclosky’s pocket. He got his brother-in-law, Adam A. Dombkowski, to run in the District 1 race, effectively controlling what happened in Porter County, ensuring that votes were split off until there was nothing left and that nothing was and is Mark Leyva, AGAIN. Adam’s candidacy was a successful plot to split the vote and ensured that Visclosky would have no competition come November.  Thanks John,  Adam had no business in the race and you knew it. I attended many Lake and Porter County candidate forums and never once did I see Adam in attendance. I met one person out of hundreds that actually saw him at a forum and they said that Adam was pathetic, ill-equipped to even answer questions from the audience. If you think that Adam would be a good congressman then Valparaiso should take note and replace you come the next mayoral election.  John, your sense of what is good for the people is blinded by your desire to manipulate election results.  Ladies and gentlemen, just wait for it, wait for it… I bet that Valpo/Porter County gets a large chunk of ‘gimme’ money from a Visclosky earmark down the road.  Just wait and watch.

The general population is blind to the behind the scenes bullshit that these guys pull. The majority of the GOP people that I met do not have the people’s interest in mind; they have a narcissistic desire for power and control. This is evident in how they insert themselves into politics. Their conversations lean towards who is doing who and lots of anecdotes of what “so-and-so said”. They bend your ear to fill you in on what is really happening behind the scenes, talk smack about their fellow GOP pals and then turn a happy face on when in the company of those same persons.  Just think of elementary school yard politics on steroids. The difference between the school yard antics and what these GOP guys do is that the GOP guys are now adults and dangerous and affect all of our lives with their backroom deals, underhanded smear campaigns, stacking elections, vote splitting and ‘you name it’. They send in plants as candidates and they plant people in candidate campaigns to gather info and negatively affect the campaign.  Ask those same GOP dudes that want to influence Lake County about the issues and you will get a politicians dance with moves designed to never dive deep into the topic and never reveal that they do not have a grip on the issue. It is just a game to them.

Rob Pastore is a person who has the potential to stand in the way of corruption. Rob Pastore would actually govern FOR the people, knows the issues on top of his being ethical and moral. Those qualities made him a liability to politics as usual in Lake County.  It is disappointing that Kim Krull did not stand on her own, judging Rob’s merits and contributions and instead was influenced by not so hidden agendas.  Just when we thought that the Lake County GOP was growing a set, would recognize corrupt, power hungry politicians, we have this setback.

I am more than angry with what is happening with the Lake County GOP, I am frustrated with political corruption, the dangerous games they play with our lives, their complete inability in the primary to get out the vote and get people to the polls. I am livid that the GOP has fallen for the dirty games, dirty politics all of which was supposed to have been on its way out.

There is a lot of work to be done before we have honest and ethical representation in the Lake County GOP and in NWI. Some in the GOP have their heart in the right place and they must strive to weed out lies and corruption.

One good thing that comes from this is that Rob Pastore is free to run his Mayoral campaign with fewer distractions.

Lake County Indiana Tea Party, Mark J. Leyva Homophobic?

To start this off, I participate in a variety of Tea Party events and have attended events where the Lake County Tea Party has been present.  I found the members friendly and enthusiastic in their promotion of the group motto, “Taking Action-Taking Responsibility-Taking Back America”.

From its inception by leader Mark J. Leyva, there has been suspicion that this Tea Party is exactly what the National Tea Party Patriots warned us about, the Republicans will attempt to take over the Tea Party for political gain.  The self-proclaimed Leader of this Tea Party, Mark J. Leyva is a perennial candidate for Congress, having run for that office hoping to unseat Pete Visclosky since 1998.  That is a long time and Mark is on his way into the Indiana Hall Of Fame as a perennial candidate, which by definition is a candidate who runs with little or no hope of winning. He just keeps running and running and when Mark Leyva wins the primary, it is a guaranteed win for Visclosky come November in the general election, as years of the Leyva vs Visclosky races have shown us. Pete Visclosky loves it and may even support Mark’s campaign from afar because if Mark wins, Pete wins.

The URL to Mark Leyva’s Tea Party site reads, “http://teamgopin.com/wordpress/”.  Read that again, it is “Team Grand Old Party (GOP) Indiana”.  He created his tea party site as an extension of the Republican Party. Those of us in NWI, knowing of Mark Leyva’s many political campaigns, smelled something foul when he claimed to be a Tea Party Leader.  His Lake County Tea Party has not yet captured much support in the area.  Lake County has a large population and with Mark in control of this Tea Party it has floundered in obscurity. To gather a 25 to 100 people at a rally = failure when you have population numbers that are greater than the next county over, Porter county, which has drawn 1000 people to its rallies. Quite a few Lake County people attend the Porter County rallies held by Faith Jones of the Northwest Indiana Patriots, (discussion board here.) Faith is a regular citizen who has no political aspirations, unlike Mark Leyva who jumped onto the Tea Party bandwagon to use it as a tool for his never-ending campaign for Congress. I might post more on another day, discussing the candidate forums where Mark Leyva talks about the Tea Party during campaign forums, speaking of his hopes the Tea Party will do what he has not been able to do in 12 years, and that being winning a general election. Unfortunately, the INTeaParty down in Indianapolis has fallen for the Leyva ruse and have been behind the scenes in assisting him. (Psst, Indy, S. Martin, we need to talk).

Wouldn’t it be fitting that the Democrats down south control the Tea Party of Lake County, purposely hindering the message of the Tea Party in Lake County so as to keep people uninformed and thereby secure another Democratic win in the primary and general elections? Hmm, we have the Indy Tea Party being duped by Mark and then we may have the Democratic Party from down south actually running the Lake County Tea Party. I say ‘may’ because the evidence is there, but I don’t have my hands on it, so I cannot make a claim aside from throwing in ‘maybe’s’.

Politics is a wicked game for Lake County which ranks as one of the most corrupt in Indiana, centering in East Chicago, Indiana.  (Do a little speculation as to what is going on behind the scenes and you will be on target at least once if not twice.)

Regarding the title of this post, I wrestled with what I would say.  I appreciate the Tea Party Movement for the massive informational conduit that the grassroots organization provides.  I hesitate to lay out any claims that may detract from the movement.  Yet, I cannot ignore the path that Mark Leyva has taken.  Most know that the Tea Party is under assault from the Democratic Left as being racist, homophobic, violent and anti-American along with a host of other insults. From what I have witnessed, the opposite is true of the Indiana Tea Parties in general with one exception in the homophobic category.  In the category of homophobic I believe that Mark Leyva promotes hate against homosexuals and he does this alone, no other Tea Party joins him in that crusade.

Yeah, I said it.  Mark Leyva has an irrational fear of homosexuals. I say this because this is not the first email where Mark J. Leyva has attacked a portion of the populace, used hate and fear-mongering to further his agenda. There are other emails as evidence.

Depending on his mood, Mark Leyva sends out what he calls, “Pass On Material” email blasts.

The Mark Leyva Tea Party email blast dated April 19th, 2010 has a disturbing link on the bottom left corner.  The link is titled: Crown Point HS 19 10.doc (27k)”.

I honestly do not click on his links most of the time, but I clicked on this one. For those that do not live in this area, there is discussion regarding the National Day of Silence that was held on Friday, April 16th. The article has 335 comments so far and is not stopping.

The National Day of Silence is described on their website as this:

On the National Day of Silence hundreds of thousands of students nationwide take a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in their schools.

I will note that studies have found that the teen population consisting of Lesbians and Gays has the higher suicidal thought plus attempted suicide rate, higher than any other group. Our children, regardless of their sexual orientation, are killing themselves because they cannot stand living in a world where they are bullied and hated not only by their peers, but by adults. Mark Leyva is Catholic, does his religion condone homosexual hate, or has he strayed?

With the knowledge that our children are vulnerable and in need of help, how can Mark Leyva promote the letter I am about to post here?  Mark J. Leyva, who dreams of being a Congressman for Indiana District 1, who wants people to believe that he cares about Northwest Indiana, promotes the degradation and isolation of a vulnerable portion of our society. If Mark J. Leyva cared about Northwest Indiana he would have NEVER included the hate filled letter against teens in his email blast, he would have stood up for that segment of the population. Mark J. Leyva proposes to represent a select demographic during a stint in Congress; he will represent some of the people, not all of the people. He not only included that letter, he promoted it, and that in itself says he agrees with this hate filled diatribe against the vulnerable teens who are gay. So yes, that makes Mark J. Leyva homophobic. No two ways about it. 

Keep in mind that the Lake County Tea Party email blast this letter came with is an email that Mark Leyva approves. It is not like a discussion board where anyone can sign up and you never know what they will say.  Mark has to specifically cut and paste links in order to compose his email. Everything in that email is on purpose, selected and promoted and represents Mark J. Leyva, a candidate for Congress, District 1.  There are no gnomes that sneak in weird articles in the middle of the night, adding links to his emails. All of that is done by Mark Leyva.

So here is a letter that Mark agrees with and chose to add to his email blast. The author is unknown. Read it for yourself and ask how he can promote this unbridled hate, by an adult, aimed at teens who may be different from you.   Is this really what we want as a U.S. House of Representatives candidate?  You decide. Will this push another child to leave us, choose suicide, because she or he cannot stand living in this world?

Here is Mark J. Leyva’s approved message to the people:

Ok I am pissed to put it mild

This morning I got a message that

Pete Visclosky Votes Yes for 50 Million to buy an Island, Then Says We Have to Tighten Our Belts

Well, this is another head scratcher. Pete Visclosky is suddenly concerned with Federal government spending?

Pete Visclosky addressed the Crown Point Rotary yesterday and one of his comments regarding taxes was “…that he thought it was a problem to continue to spend with the size of the country’s deficit and said ‘changes have to be made.’”

Well la-di-da.  He is in full campaign mode and feigning concern with how the Democratic controlled House and Senate is spending too much money, deepening the crater called the deficit. Yep, look at the charts here and see for yourself who has been breaking the bank. The Republicans never even dreamed of blowing wads of our money like the Dems have done.

This guy talks out of both sides of his mouth. After attending three town hall meetings with him, I can tell you first hand that he is an arrogant, polished politician who is more concerned with what looks good in print. He will not answer questions directly and is blowing smoke up the collective a$$es of all of Indiana District 1.

How does Pete Visclosky reconcile his voting YES to spending 50 million dollars to buy a cotton plantation in the U.S. Virgin Islands?

Hey Mr. Money Man, that is OUR cash your are throwing to the wind.

Huh?  Hypocritical much Pete? You are a rising star on the most corrupt politician list, being probed by the House’s Office of Congressional Ethics, (we will see on March 2 if they take action), using your campaign funds for legal fees.

Do the people of Indiana really want to stay on that path, re-elect a career politician who has shown us that he really does NOT care about the people?

If you are fed up with lies, generational theft, corruption, backroom deals and career politicians who do not care about the people in Northwest Indiana then help Rob Pastore with his campaign for U.S. Congress District 1.

Go forth and multiply, do what ya gotta do to clean up Congress and protect the Republic of America.

Is it Racist to Suggest Obama go “Gangsta”?

Obama didn’t get his way with some appointments so some suggest that he goes gangsta.

babybarry

Is it racist to tell Obama he should go ‘gangsta’ against his foes?  What I know of the word and what it means is black thugs, gangs, gangsta rap.  Now if it was spelled ‘gangster’ it would reference any gang member, but typically it indicates old skool mafia mob action.

Why spell it ‘gangsta’?

Here is a clip from the author of the article, Roland S. Martin:

For me, I’m sick and tired of Democrats having power and being unwilling to use it. I’ve always respected Republicans when they had power because they were willing to use it and maybe apologize later.

Today, President Obama walked into the White House briefing room and took some questions, and one of them revolved around recess appointments.

He has watched Republicans block many of his appointments, and now he says he made it clear to them that he will “consider” making some when the U.S. Senate goes into recess.

“One senator, as you all are aware, had put a hold on every single nominee that we had put forward due to a dispute over a couple of earmarks in his state,” President Obama said.

“In our meeting, I asked the congressional leadership to put a stop to these holds in which nominees for critical jobs are denied a vote for months. Surely we can set aside partisanship and do what’s traditionally been done to confirm these nominations.

If the Senate does not act — and I made this very clear — if the Senate does not act to confirm these nominees, I will consider making several recess appointments during the upcoming recess, because we can’t afford to allow politics to stand in the way of a well-functioning government.”

Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ‘em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.

The bold and underlining are mine.

So, why mix Al Capone with ‘gangsta’? Al Capone was a Gangster.

Here are a few definitions of ‘Gangsta’:

Gangsta may refer to:

If you are so inclined to play around, you can go here and “Shed that weak-ass honky image with your very own gangsta name!” (In case you are wondering, my gangsta name is ‘Sweet Dung Beetle’.  I don’t think it’s cool enough.)

Obama told us that words mean something and I am holding everyone to it.

Did the author commit an unconscious racist error is using what is black slang when referring to what Obama should do to the people’s representatives?  The representatives recently blocked the appointment of Craig Becker, another Chicago thug with ties to Acorn and SEIU, to the National Labor Relation’s Board (NLRB).  This pissed off Obama and I am sure his pal Craig Becker was one of the people Obama was hinting at when he said he might make appointment during the U.S. Senate recess.

Let’s figure this out, the people think that Craig Becker is no.t good for America.  You don’t have to dig very deep into his background to know that he is toxic to our republic.  Just two words, Acorn/SEIU, should tell you all you need to know about him. If you want a little more info, go here. They have a decent rundown of Craig Becker.

Here is a snip from that link:

Becker does not express a belief in individual rights of workers to freely choose to join or not to join a union.  He supports the idea that workers should be forced into collectives like unions that dominate and control individual working conditions.  Becker’s beliefs are the antithesis of American democracy and liberty, and his beliefs will have disastrous results if implemented by the NLRB.

Anyway, Obama wants this Chicago Becker thug on the NLRB. So he says he may just go ahead and tell the American people to shove it.  It was our representatives, based on our input who declined Becker’s nomination.

Evidently, the author of the article above thinks that Obama should force himself onto an unwilling population, disregard the voice of the people and thug it out, do what he wants cause he is the pResident.  We elected Obama to follow the will of the people. Last I looked, that was part of the job description when a person got a paycheck for warming the chair in the oval office.

So, back to gangsta.  Is it racist to call Obama a racially loaded name?  The author of the article is a black man, does that give him a pass?  Would it be different if the author was white?

The Fundamental Transformation of America

Found over at Jag Hunter, an article forwarded by Sergeant of Marines James Bancroft. The author of the article is not known at this point in time.

When, in the history of America, have we ever allowed a person who is so unknown to us in so many ways, who refuses to share who he is, where he came from, how he lived his life, yet shows us who he is through proxy of associations, when have we ever allowed that person to hold the office of President?  How deep was this plot to elect an unknown with ties and associations, some of them lifelong, to persons and corporations that we know work to destroy the freedoms of America.

How did this happen?  How do we stop it now and prevent another takeover, another ‘transformation’ in the future?

Here is the article:

When Anita Dunn, White House Communications director said Mao Tse Tung was her favorite philosopher and the person she turned to most for inspiration, people said it didn’t matter.

When he appointed Carol Browner as global warming czar, and she is a well known socialist working on Cap and Trade as the nations largest tax, people said it doesn’t matter.

When he appointed Van Jones, an ex-con and avowed Communist as green energy czar who was forced to resign when Jones history was made known, people said it didn’t matter.

When Tom Daschle, Obama’s pick for health and human services secretary, could not be confirmed because he was a tax cheat, people said it didn’t matter.

When as a counterfeit president of the United States Obama bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, people said it didn’t matter.

When he traveled around the world criticizing America and never once talking of her greatness, people said it didn’t matter.

When his actions concerning the Middle East seemed to support the Palestinians over America’s long time friend Israel, people said it doesn’t matter.

When he took American tax dollars to resettle thousands of Palestinians from Gaza to the United States, people said it doesn’t matter.

When he upset the Europeans by removing plans for a missile defense system against the Russians, people said it doesn’t matter.

Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this do an internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph.

Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America? Personally, I like happy endings.

If you are an Obama supporter please do not be angry with me because I think your president is a socialist but there are too many facts supporting this.

If you seek the truth you will be richer for it.

Don’t just belittle the opposition.

Search for the truth. I did.

Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalists, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish.

If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy.

Don’t rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the Internet.

Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there too but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies.

Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth?

Obama praises all the television news networks except Fox who he has waged war against. There must be a reason… He does not call them down on any specifics, just a general battle against them. If they lie, he should call them out on it but he doesn’t.

Please find the truth. It will set you free.

Our biggest enemy is not China , Russia , Iran. No, our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington DC .

Update: Victory against Big Labor: Home health providers reject SEIU, AFSCME power grab

Michelle Malkin provides an update covering SEIU’s power-grab for Unionized control of the persons who provide home health care for disabled persons.

The health care providers flushed SEIU and AFSCME down the tubes with the following breakdown of votes:

SEIU – 293 votes
AFSCME – 220 votes
NO UNION – 1018 votes

Folks, we must stay on top of ACORN/SEIU/AFL-CIO in Indiana and nationally.  Please help research where our State funds are going.  Every time you read an article regarding a ‘community’ program, be that for loan applications, housing, voter registration, child care, health care, employment training, school coalitions, home weatherization, teacher associations, labor, political action committees (PACS) and the list goes on, look into the associations of the organizations behind those programs. If you dig just a little you will find that the majority of those organizations have association with ACORN/SEIU and it’s money handler Citizens Services Inc.

Mitch Daniels says and seems to think that he is not doing business with ACORN and that they are top of the voter registration fraud perpetrated in Indiana via ACORN. I find it hard to believe that Indiana is not funding ACORN. Remember, ACORN has over 300 shadow corporations & organizations. That is why you have to do the research on the name of the community service and track it back to ACORN.

ACORN comes into an area with such righteous sounding names which serve to cover up the ACORN/SEIU organization. These groups then proceed to get grants and funding, using these benign names and continue to rip off the State of Indiana and the Feds for billions of dollars.

Look under the cap of the acorn and dig into the nut and you will find a rotten core.

If Mitch Daniels and his hired crew cannot see how they are funding ACORN then it is up to us to bring this to their attention and to demand that they stop handing our Indiana tax dollars, OUR money over to any group that is associated with ACORN/SEIU.

Pete Visclosky funded by big business and special interest, but Indiana shouldn’t give that no mind. (head pat)

Anyone notice this little gem in the Times? Read it here “Indiana District 1 does not support Visclosky, but he keeps getting wagon loads of cash from out of state. The people of Indiana won’t throw a penny in his pot, but Visclosky could care less, big business and special interest groups grease his wheels.”

Okay, so I took liberty with the title in the link to the news article. The actual title of the article is “Hoosiers not filling Visclosky, Bayh campaign coffers”.

Read the article and hear gems from Visclosky’s bag boy, Mr. St. John, (and I use the term bag boy in so many ways that you would be totally distracted if I explained them to you.) such as:

Having served 25 years in Congress,

“It is not surprising that he would attract campaign donations from people here in the district and elsewhere who like the job he is doing and want to see him continue his leadership,” St. John said of Visclosky.

Psst, it gets better.

* A little more than 2 percent of Visclosky’s contributions came from within his constituency, Indiana’s 1st Congressional District.

* 96 percent of Visclosky’s donations came from donors in other states.

Visclosky is a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, serves on the defense subcommittee and is chairman of the energy and water subcommittee.

According to FEC records, the same industries regulated by those committees help fuel Visclosky’s campaign, with at least $192,575 coming from the energy industry and $278,700 coming from labor and defense combined from January 2008 through June 30.

Okay, so is it any wonder, for those of you who missed the Visclosky Town Hall in Chesterton where he and his office collaborated with the local Democratic Party to publicly call the people of northwest Indiana ‘Tea Baggers’, that he really could care less about what you and I think.  Politics is about money, it is all about getting the fringe vote. He doesn’t care about the 40% that will vote for him out of what is normally named blissful ignorance, blind party loyalty or just plain low-information stupidity. He cares about the 10% fringe vote, the ‘poor’, the labor unions, the special interest groups. He wants those 10 percenters to push him over the 50% mark and into another term in office.

So, at the Chesterton Town Hall, Petey exited the rally, cruising through the hall’s doors at what I would call a brisk clip. He did NOT express any interest in addressing the over 100 people standing just to his right.

Now, call me silly, but if I am a politician and I had over 100 people (actually 250 people at its height) come out to a meeting, I would stop, glad-hand the crowd, kiss babies, pet dogs and otherwise do what politicians do which is smile at you and laugh at your jokes even if they don’t understand that the joke is on them.

Not Petey. Maybe it was the shouts of ‘Vote Him Out’ that set him on edge, but he showed no interest in the people that are fondly called his ‘constituents’.  Instead, he focused on maybe 10 people standing to his left.

Hmm, 10 people vs. 100? Yep and Petey shook THEIR 10 hands, smiled at THEM and if there had been a baby or dog in the crowd he would have kissed it.  Guess who those 10 people were?  They were the paid protesters who came out to support him from Acorn, SEIU, AFL-CIO and MoveOn. We have the photos to back this up.

Get it?  This is why Pete Visclosky could care less about what you think or want. He does not vote or perform his job with Indiana in mind.  Yeah, yeah, yeah, he throws a bone to Indiana making a big deal that he porked the government and got Indiana some grant money. Never mind that that WAS OUR MONEY to begin with and the programs he gives it to are frigging union, Acorn and special interest projects.

But hey, all Hail Petey and his pork.

So, what are you going to do about changing the line-up come November of 2010?  Pete Visclosky will not be hurt if you withhold funds. He gets his money from special interest and big business from around the USA. He doesn’t need your money and he doesn’t have your interests in mind when he votes.

If you think otherwise consider this.  You get a paycheck for doing a job. Now, your responsibility is to build a job performance that you can drag out come review time where you can wag on about what you did for the community.  But, the money you really need in order to keep your job comes from a group of dudes who need you to vote a certain way so that their corporations can profit. Those dudes give you millions of dollars so that you can convince the community that you are doing a good job for them and for them only.

When it comes time to vote on issues, do you vote in favor of what is in the best interest of the constitution and the citizens or do you vote to make sure you keep getting those millions that grease the election wheel?

You and I know what you would do, if you were Petey and we all know what Pete does.

Enough. It is just time to say ‘Knock it OFF’ Pete. We are not stupid and, guess what, “WE WILL VOTE YOU OUT”

No more lies.

Take that and the big business grease and shove it.

Rio Hoses Chicago, Wins Bid for 2016 Olympics.

Yeah !  Chicago gets the FIRST cut in the first round, is sliced out of the running, right out of the gate and the Olympic Committee chooses Rio de Janeiro.

Rio gets the 2016 Olympics

Anyone who knows Chicago knows that inviting something like the Olympics, with all of the associated building and preparation for the games would have shifted the Daley Chi-Town corruption machine into overdrive.

Now Obama will have to figure out another way to grease the palms of the Chi-Town thugs who helped elect him.

Bummer(not)
