581.) The debt crisis is coming to a head, the country is coming to a boil, fueled by the fire of fear, and President Barack Obama is finally ready to actually release a plan, not just details about a plan. Before you get excited though, the plan has nothing to do with the debt ceiling, instead it has to do with the CAFE standards. Yes the President has given up a lot in an effort to get a deal on the critical CAFE standards. Rather than demanding that all automanufactures meet a fleet average of 56.2 MPG, President Obama has agreed to meet the automakers half way and set the CAFE standards at a measly 54.5 MPG by 2025.  Just so you know no car currently in production meets those numbers, and according to most automakers, and engineers this goal is impossible with an internal combustion engine and a car. Even the eco-nerd love box the Prius does not meet those numbers. This CAFE standard is seen as a way to force the market to build cars that the President deems people want to buy. Afterall that is what killed GM, they built big gas guzzlers that no one bought (I have disproven this point countless times see previous points for more information). You see despite what the the President and his progressive allies would have you believe people are not flocking to hybrid compact death trap… I mean ecofriendly cars for salvation from the sky rocketing gas prices. Last year Ford sold twice as many F150’s as all hybrids sold combined.  A Federal study supports the notion that people do not want to buy small hybrid cars, the study says that if the standard is raised sales of cars would drop 14%. So the President is supporting a measure that would hurt our economy. What sends up red flags about this deal is up untill the deal was anounced the automakers where adamatly opposed to this hike, saying that it was impossible. Did the 1.7 mpg change really make the difference, did that really bring the standards within a technological grasp? I doubt it, I imagen the the President’s ties to the UAW had something to do with it, maybe along the lines of I will call of the Union from unionizing new plants if you pull the anti cafe standard adds. I don’t have evidence, but given the history of this President I wouldn’t doubt it.  I believe the progressives cried fowl and through a temper-tantrum when the GOP tried to pass a balanced buget ammendment, which deals with the debt, but it is okay for President Obama to focus on the CAFE standards rather than put out a plan on paper to solve the debt ceiling crisis.

578.) During the first years of his campaign and presidency President Barack Obama told the American people a gut wreching story about his mothers battle with cancer, and with the disciples of lucifer the health care companies. In 2007, “I remember in the last month of her life, she wasn’t thinking about how to get well, she wasn’t thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality, she was thinking about whether or not insurance was going to cover the medical bills and whether our family would be bankrupt as a consequence”. In 2008 “She was in her hospital room looking at insurance forms because the insurance company said that maybe she had a pre-existing condition and maybe they wouldn’t have to reimburse her for her medical bills”. In 2010 during the healthcare summit “My Mother, who was self-employed, didn’t have reliable healthcare, and she died of ovarian cancer. There probably is nothing modern medicine could have done about that, it was caught late and thats a hard cancer to diagnose. I do remember the last six months of her life, insurance companies threatening that they would not reimburse her for her costs. And her having to be on the phone in the hospital argueing with insurance companies when what she should have been doing is spending time with her family”.  All of these stories tell of a sick woman trying desperatly to ensure that her family would not face a financial burden upon her death.  Unfortunatly it appears that this story wasn’t as bleak as President Obama would have us believe. In a new Book by New York Times writer Janny Scott titled Singular Woman: the Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother the author discribes a much different story.  The President’s mother did in fact have health insurance through her work.  While researching for the book Correspondences between the President’s Mother and Washington Examiners Byron York, show that she did in fact have health insurance. Mr. Scott said, “Ann’s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance, which covered most of the costs of her medical treatment. Once she was back in Hawaii, the hospital billed her insurance company directly, leaving Ann to pay only the deductible and any uncovered expenses, which, she said, came to several hundred dollars a month.” That doesn’t sound like a world ending experince to me. Now to be fair the President’s mother did in fact have a claim denied, but that was only when she tried to get compensated for her medical costs and living expenses. What I also find interesting is that the President claims his mother was self employed, unfortunatly Mr. Scott’s research clearly shows that the President’s Mother took a job in 1994 with an American company called Development Alternatives.  So two lies for the price of one. Now I am not trying to down play the struggle this woman went through in the last couple months of her life, what I am doing is calling out the President for lying about it for political gain.

579.) President Obama has been caught once again displaying his arrogance and disdane for you the American people, when asked about a poll where 69% of the American People said they do not support raising the debt ceiling President Obama responded by saying this,  “Let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. You know, the public is not paying close attention to the ins and outs of how a Treasury auction goes. They shouldn’t. They’re worrying about their family, they’re worrying about their jobs. They’re worrying about their neighborhood. They have got a lot of other things on their plate. We’re paid to worry about it”. Proof the President does not understand the American system.  What he doesn’t understand is that he is not paid to worry about it, he and congress are paid to do as they are told. They work for us, they do not think for us. We sent them to Washington to represent our views, not to act as free agents on our behalf.  Maybe he should start listening to his employers, his bosses, the true masters of this country. What he doesn’t seem to understand is that he and congress aremembers of the public at large. He is no different than any one of us.  The American People are smarter and more intune than he realizes.  We, unlike him, understand that the debt in this country is out of control, and that barrowing more money is not the answer to getting out of debt. What the President is proposing is standing in a bucket and trying to pull ourselves up. His arrogance is sickening, and maddening.

580.) President Obama has once again bypassed congress, ignored the consitution to end a crisis that his adminstration all but created.  President Obama has signed an executive order In an effort to stem the illicit flow of weapons into Mexico. So now we are trying to stop them, it wasn’t too long ago the ATF was giving them to criminals. It is almost like creating a crisis to push your agenda…. hmm…. The exectutive order basically requires that if someone buys too many of a similar type high power fire arm, two, with in a five day span the store must report that to the Federal Government. What qualifies, any semi-automatic with a detachable magazine, and larger than a 22 caliber… so basically 99.999% of fire arms.  Abuse of Executive power, theft of privacy, more government oversight, nothing here sounds like a win for President Obama’s employers.

576.) With the debt limit growing closer President Obama is getting desperate to get a new line of credit for his credit card. He of course has once again resorted to relaying on the presumed ignorance of you the American People.  You see President Obama has once again said that tax breaks cost the government money. “

Now, it would be nice if we could keep every tax break, but we can’t afford them.” He then went on to say, “
Nothing can be off-limits, including spending in the tax code, particularly the loopholes that benefit very few individuals and corporations” I will say this once again, Tax breaks and tax cuts do not cost the government money. You see the money that is in question is not the governments, so not getting it does not mean you spent it. To say otherwise means you believe everything belongs to the government and they just lend it to us, that is the view of a tyrant not of a nation of free men.  The President refuses to admit that what our government cannot afford is more of his Trillion dollar spending habits. A trillion here, a trillion there, bail out this failure, and lets just print more money to pay for it all. That is what has caused this financial crisis, not the tax rate. This financial crisis has been brought on by one thing and one thing only, the government spending more money than it brings in. It is not a revenue issue it is a spending issue. The government has proven itself incapable of living within its means. So even if we were to raise taxes, what is to stop the government from spending even more than they are right now? There is nothing, no law, no regulation, President Obama and his progressive buddies don’t believe in limitations on governments power. President Obama believes in using the tax code to make the world more fair, and redistributing your wealth to other people.  He is using this as nothing more than a political tactic.
 
577.) So President Obama is well on the way to smashing fundrasing records, in the second quarter he could likely break the $75,000,000 dollars. This is incredible and more power to him, unless of course he comes by some of it illegally. You see while President Obama was belittling the dignity of the Office of the President of the United States, by offering raffle tickets for a dinner with him and Joe Biden, he filmed the ad in the White House. Now under Title 18, Subsection 607 it is unlawful for the President to “to solicit or receive a donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a federal, state, or local election, while in any room or building occupied in the discharge of official duties.” What is a little thing like the law when it comes to the goals of President Barack Obama, after all it has never stood in his way before.  Now the progressive left will point out that in 1979 the Justice Department ruled that it was okay for presidential fundraising to be done within the White House so long as it was in the residential portion of the mansion.  The only problem with this defense is that according to what election law experts told CNSNews the part of the White House used to film the raffel video is frequently used for offical business. The room in question was is known as the map room, a room used for President Obama’s second swearing in, press interviews and his meeting with the Dali Lama. Now what all of this means is that, shockingly, President Barack Obama has once again broken the law. The words of a former President comes to mind though that might help to defend President Obama’s actions “when the President does it, it’s not illegal.”  Of course the Progressives will say “other Presidents have done it”, probably shout something about George W. Bush, but that does not make it okay. Just because former Presidents broke the law it does not mean it is okay for this one to do so. If everyone jumped off a bridge would President Obama fallow them?  This just serves as more evidence of President Obama’s complete disregaurd for the fact that this nation was ment to be a nation of laws, not of men. A nation where justice applied to everyone, not just for different indidivuals.
 
 

235 years ago our fore fathers made possible the assent of mankind from the wrenched abyss of tyranny. Through their efforts a new Nation, a nation that secured the principles of equality, justice, and most importantly individual liberty, was brought forth into this world.

 

happy fourth of july. Enjoy the liberty that we enjoy.
