Behind the Scenes

I know I haven't been updating this even now that I am reconnected at home.  But my plead today is not over healthcare...if they could pass it they would have by now.

here is my plea today.....

Please, they are using this Healthcare thing as a distraction. They don't have the votes or else they would have done it already.

Pay attention to the Cybersecurity Act of 2009. Obama said he wants to move toward the Chinese Model of Internet regulation.

WE CAN'T ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!!! Please help me in opposing this.

Quote of the Century

In LOVE with this ......

QUOTE OF THE YEAR... "As an American, I am not so shocked that Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishments to his name, but that America gave him the White House based on the same credentials." Newt Gingrich


More on thoughts about the bill passing the house.... honestly it was so close in its passing I am not thinking it will pass the Senate HOWEVER to be sure of that we MUST keep the pressure on!! This just goes to show you that our representatives do not care what we want and apparently think their comfy seats are safe no matter what so we must show them otherwise.  With so many upset people that it REALLY makes me wonder who voted all these people in, and keeps voting them in election after election?

Now I wonder has any of the liberal supporters, who thinks this is just GREAT, figured out where all the $$$ is coming from? Has their crazy brain had any forethought of when millions upon millions of Americans will be FORCED on the Govt healthcare bill that taxes WILL skyrocket. The govt program will not be able to handle the influx, not enough money (RATIONING), Not enough Doctors (RATIONING and long long waits), Not enough facilities. The inability of them not looking past today is seriously mind blowing. Notice Pelosi is smiling- have you never heard the saying that if someone is smiling over something so many are against to watch out for the evil plot going on in the head yeah that is what that smile says to me. CONGRATULATIONS NANCY!!! YOU DID WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DID NOT WANT....

 IF this passes all the way its the beginning of the end and it will be time to stop talking and take serious actions!!!!!  Let's see how much longer we have until we have to change "We the People" to "We the subjects of BIG GOVERNMENT'!  This was not FOR the people BY the people.

Health Care passes the house!

Health Care Reform Bill Passes House 220-215 :-( hopefully won't get passed the senate

While I agree with the need for health care overhaul, it scares the hell out of me that ordinary everyday Americans are going to be forced to buy health care from the same crooks who caused the problem, or face serious fines, or possibly even jailtime. That's just plain crazy BS!

Mandatory forcing people to pay for insurance, which they can not afford is just wrong it is against our 13th amendment basically is slavery! I would rather see no change than 'crazy' change. A bunch of 'rich' politicians deciding what 'we' the people can, or cannot afford, is VERY wrong.

I agree there needs to be alternative options, but if 'mandatory' is included in the language of the bill, I hope it fails. It BETTER FAIL!  More pressure on 'ordinary Americans' is unacceptable! It's already hard enough to make ends meet, without the fear of jail, or financial ruin.

Happy talk about health care, while putting in devastating consequences is anything but 'happy' for those that will be 'forced' to pay for 'rich politicians 'happy talk'. Just say no to mandatory health care! It's just wrong!

I want health care reform, NOT insurance reform. Does this bill give us that? We have no way of knowing because it's still be negotiated (meaning the Dems don't have enough votes for the original version). Who is really making out with our money....certainly isn't us now is it!?  We use alternative health care so unless there is something affordable that we can use for our ways of life this is plain and simply wrong! We would be forced to waste money on something we don't need.

Help is Needed on Cap-and-Trade Today

Sen. Barbara Boxer is trying to pull a fast one!

She wants to force her outrageous Boxer-Kerry cap-and-trade energy rationing and taxing scheme through the Senate Environment and Public Workers Committee this week, while the country is focused on health care.  Sen. Boxer is even trying to force it through without the official EPA analysis of what's in the bill and how much it will cost.

It's bad enough to try to pass the biggest tax hike in history, hidden in what's supposed to be an environmental bill.  But slamming it through a committee when it hasn't even been analyzed by the EPA is wrong.  The public has a right to know what's in the bill and what the EPA thinks it will cost.

Committee votes matter, because once a senator supports something in committee it's very hard for them to change their mind on later votes.  That makes it even more outrageous that the first votes could be cast while much of the bill-and its sky-high costs for regular Americans-remain secret.

I'm emailing you because our system indicates that one of your senators is on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (full list below).

Please enter your information in the box provided above to get your Senator's contact information.

Tell them no mark-up without a full EPA analysis, and that even with everything else going on, you know how important cap-and-trade is and you are paying attention.

Calling ALL Patriots It's Make or Break Time with Health Care

Thursday at 12:00 we will be presenting our senators the petitions that were signed Sunday. We will meet in front of Baucus's office in the Great Northern Town Center at 30 west 14th block. After presenting the petitions to his office we are going to go to Testers office at 208 North Montana Ave. Suite 202A and do like wise with his office. This is in response to a National call to stop the passage of a Health Care bill this week. Please read the below suggestions and your support is requested as this cannot pass. Roger

It's Make or Break Time with Health Care

Speaker Pelosi is working to bring the bill to the floor of the House on Friday or Saturday of this week. 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is working to line up 60 votes so that the bill may be brought to the Senate Floor.  The Senate cannot bring a bill to the floor as easily as the House.

In the Senate, the bill must have unanimous consent to be brought to a vote (which this one will not) or there will have to be a motion to proceed. When the motion to proceed is announced, objections will occur.  After this Senator Reid will file a cloture motion, which will attempt to stop debate and actually allow vote on his original motion to proceed.  For the cloture motion to win, there must be 60 votes. 

The National Tea Party Patriots have been working on an Operation House Call program and traveling to DC to personally deliver "NO HEALTHCARE" faxes from patriots in all states......

Passion to Action Weekly To Do List
The phone calls, emails, faxes, and protests have been working.  While it is hard work, please keep up the effort.

1.  Begin writing a personal letter from your heart to the Senators and Representatives
     below ( 73 total ).  Write one addressed to each Congressman.  Then fax to
     678-302-5377. The National Tea Party Group will hand deliver the faxes in Washington.

2.  Plan a protest outside Baucus and Tester offices on Thursday, November 5th
     at 10:00 am.  This coincides with protests in Washington at the same hour.

3.  While faxes are being distributed at 11:30 am (MST) to Senate Office Buildings, we
      need to back up their efforts by calling all the targeted Senators today. (See List
      below).   Call National and local offices.

         TIP:   Just calmly give   " name, address  and  say NO HEALTHCARE."
                  They will only tally your opinion as either "yes" or "no"  and then calculate
                  the day's total.   No need to give lengthy explanation.


4.  While faxes are being distributed at 8:30 am (MST) to Representative Office Buildings,
     in Washington, we need to back up their efforts by calling all the
     targeted Representatives today. (See List below).   Call National and local offices.
5.  Operation House Call in Washington continues by joining Congressman Michelle
      Bachman at (10:00 am our time) to make additional calls on Congress.  Many groups
      have chartered caravans and buses from DE, GA, IL, LA, NY, RI, TX, VA: 

6.   Protest at Baucus and Tester offices at 12:00 PM.   Send 1 person into the office
      to tell the staff members how you feel about government takeover of healthcare.
      Call Congressman's office again to say NO to healthcare. 

7.   Keep the pressure on...


8.   Call Baucus and Tester AGAIN and say NO to goverment run healthcare!
9.   Call the local offices and district offices of the targeted Congressmen again today.

Ron Paul needs our help

Dear Friend of Liberty,

We have all worked so hard to make an Audit of the Federal Reserve a reality. Together, we have led the fight to get congressional hearings, 308 cosponsors, and unprecedented attention around the country.

Now, you and I face our biggest challenge yet. And Ron Paul needs your help!

Mel Watt (D-NC), Chairman of the Monetary Policy Subcommittee, has sided with banking interests and is working to gut substantial audit provisions from H.R. 1207. The bill Congressman Watt has sent to the full Financial Services Committee contains no audit of the Fed’s monetary policy-making authority or transparency of the Fed’s secret agreements with foreign central banks.

Without these provisions, a so-called “audit” of the Fed would be worthless.

The full Financial Services Committee is likely to vote on this bill either later this week or early next.

Congressman Paul will offer an amendment to restore the provisions contained in H.R. 1207 to audit monetary policy and activity with foreign central banks. Thirteen of the 41 Democrats and all 29 Republicans on the Committee have cosponsored H.R. 1207, and if they hold the line, we will have the votes to win and restore our audit.

Dr. Paul has shot a YouTube video for Campaign for Liberty explaining the situation in more detail. Click here to watch the video.

Pressure on the Democrat House Financial Services Committee members is critical! Below is a list of Democrats who have cosponsored. Please call them and urge them to vote “Yes” on the Paul Amendment. Click on their names to get their web contact information.

1. Rep. John Adler, NJ (202) 225-4765

2. Rep. Travis Childers, MS (202) 225-4306

3. Rep. Steve Driehaus, OH (202) 225-2216

4. Rep. Alan Grayson, FL (202) 225-2176

5. Rep. Rubén Hinojosa, TX (202) 225-2531

6. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, FL Toll Free: 1-877-956-7627

7. Rep. Dan Maffei, NY (202) 225-3701

8. Rep. Brad Miller, NC (202) 225-3032

9. Rep. Walt Minnick, ID (202) 225-6611

10. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, CO (202)-225-2645

11. Rep. David Scott, GA (202) 225-2939

12. Rep. Brad Sherman, CA (202) 225-5911

13. Rep. Jackie Speier, CA (202) 225-3531

When contacting these members, remember that up to this point, these members have been allies on this issue. A civil yet firm tone should be kept during these calls. They should be thanked for their cosponsorship, told that Mel Watt’s changes to the bill are unacceptable, and urged to hold the line and honor their promise to support transparency at the Fed by voting “Yes” for the Paul amendment.

It is also important that we contact Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and urge them to schedule a standalone, up or down vote on the real Audit the Fed bill.

Rep. Barney Frank: (202) 225-5931

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: (202) 225-0100

Now is a crucial time for Audit the Fed. If these 13 Democrats hold the line, Ron Paul and C4L can win this battle. But, they must vote “Yes” on the Paul amendment when the full committee votes.

Together, you and I can win this fight.

Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty in UN Treaty, Claims British Lord

October 15, 2009

The Minnesota Free Market Institute hosted an event at Bethel University in St. Paul on Wednesday evening. Keynote speaker Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing and lengthy presentation, complete with detailed charts, graphs, facts, and figures which culminated in the utter decimation of both the pop culture concept of global warming and the credible threat of any significant anthropomorphic climate change.

A detailed summary of Monckton’s presentation will be available here once compiled. However, a segment of his remarks justify immediate publication. If credible, the concern Monckton speaks to may well prove the single most important issue facing the American nation, bigger than health care, bigger than cap and trade, and worth every citizen’s focused attention.

Here were Monckton’s closing remarks, as dictated from my audio recording:

At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it

I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfication of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.

How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement, who took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year, because [the communists] captured it – Now the apotheosis is at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign it. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course he’ll sign it.
And the trouble is this; if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties – And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it.

So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your humanity away forever! And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not.

But I think it is here, here in your great nation, which I so love and I so admire – it is here that perhaps, at this eleventh hour, at the fifty-ninth minute and fifty-ninth second, you will rise up and you will stop your president from signing that dreadful treaty, that purposeless treaty. For there is no problem with climate and, even if there were, an economic treaty does nothing to [help] it.

So I end by saying to you the words that Winston Churchill addressed to your president in the darkest hour before the dawn of freedom in the Second World War. He quoted from your great poet Longfellow:

Sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!

Lord Monckton received a standing ovation and took a series of questions from members of the audience. Among those questions were these relevent to the forthcoming Copenhagen treaty:

Question: The current administration and the Democratic majority in Congress has shown little regard for the will of the people. They’re trying to pass a serious government agenda, and serious taxation and burdens on future generations. And there seems to be little to stop them. How do you propose we stop Obama from doing this, because I see no way to stop him from signing anything in Copenhagen. I believe that’s his agenda and he’ll do it.

I don’t minimize the difficulty. But on this subject – I don’t really do politics, because it’s not right. In the end, your politics is for you. The correct procedure is for you to get onto your representatives, both in the US Senate where the bill has yet to go through (you can try and stop that) and in [the House], and get them to demand their right of audience (which they all have) with the president and tell him about this treaty. There are many very powerful people in this room, wealthy people, influential people. Get onto the media, tell them about this treaty. If they go to, they will find (if they look carefully enough) a copy of that treaty , because I arranged for it to be posted there not so long ago. Let them read it, and let the press tell the people that their democracy is about to be taken away for no good purpose, at least [with] no scientific basis [in reference to climate change]. Tell the press to say this. Tell the press to say that, even if there is a problem [with climate change], you don’t want your democracy taken away. It really is as simple as that.
Question: Is it really irrevocable if that treaty is signed? Suppose it’s signed by someone who does not have the authority, as I – I have some, a high degree of skepticism that we do have a valid president there because I -

I know at least one judge who shares your opinion, sir, yes.
I don’t believe it until I see it. … Would [Obama's potential illegitimacy as president] give us a reasonable cause to nullify whatever treaty that he does sign as president?

I would be very careful not to rely on things like that. Although there is a certain amount of doubt whether or not he was born in Hawaii, my fear is it would be very difficult to prove he wasn’t born in Hawaii and therefore we might not be able to get anywhere with that. Besides, once he’s signed that treaty, whether or not he signed it validly, once he’s signed it and ratified it – your Senate ratifies it – you’re bound by it. But I will say one thing; they know, in the White House, that they won’t be able to get the 67 votes in the Senate, the two-thirds majority that your Constitution has stipulated must be achieved in order to ratify a treaty of this kind. However, what they’ve worked out is this – and they actually let it slip during the election campaign, which is how I know about it. They plan to enact that Copenhagen treaty into legislation by a simple majority of both houses. That they can do.

But the virtue of that – and here you have a point – is that is, thank God, reversible. So I want you to pray tonight, and pray hard for your Senate that they utterly refuse to ratify the [new] Treaty of Copenhagen, because if they refuse to ratify it and [Obama] has to push it through as domestic legislation, you can repeal it.

Regardless of whether global warming is taking place or caused to any degree by human activity, we do not want a global government empowered to tax Americans without elected representation or anything analogous to constitutional protections. The Founding Fathers would roll over in their graves if they knew their progeny allowed a foreign power such authority, effectively undoing their every effort in an act of Anti-American Revolution. If that is our imminent course, we need to put all else on hold and focus on stopping it. If American sovereignty is ceded, all other debate is irrelevant.

Skimming through the treaty, I came across verification of Monckton’s assessment of the new entity’s purpose:
38. The scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention will be based on three basic pillars: government; facilitative mechanism; and financial mechanism, and the basic organization of which will include the following:

World Government (heading added)
(a) The government will be ruled by the COP with the support of a new subsidiary body on adaptation, and of an Executive Board responsible for the management of the new funds and the related facilitative processes and bodies. The current Convention secretariat will operate as such, as appropriate.
To Redistribute Wealth (heading added)
b) The Convention’s financial mechanism will include a multilateral climate change fund including five windows: (a) an Adaptation window, (b) a Compensation window, to address loss and damage from climate change impacts [read: the "climate debt" Monckton refers to], including insurance, rehabilitation and compensatory components, © a Technology window; (d) a Mitigation window; and (e) a REDD window, to support a multi-phases process for positive forest incentives relating to REDD actions.
With Enforcement Authority (heading added)

© The Convention’s facilitative mechanism will include: (a) work programmes for adaptation and mitigation; (b) a long-term REDD process; © a short-term technology action plan; (d) an expert group on adaptation established by the subsidiary body on adaptation, and expert groups on mitigation, technologies and on monitoring, reporting and verification; and (e) an international registry for the monitoring, reporting and verification of compliance of emission reduction commitments, and the transfer of technical and financial resources from developed countries to developing countries. The secretariat will provide technical and administrative support, including a new centre for information exchange [read; enforcement].
