Happy New Year! In 2012, we will take efforts to return back to the constitutional principles upon which our country was Founded. Thankfully, the American people have the choice to elect a president who believes in the American system of government. There is still time to reverse the damage that has been done all of these years.

"The one thing that we absolutely know for sure is that if we don't work even harder than we did in 2008, then we're going to have a government that tells the American people, 'you are on your own.'" -- Barack Obama. He's telling us if he loses, the government is going to leave us alone. Is he campaigning for Republicans?

Too many Americans think of the office of President of the United States as American Idol. It isn't. Ask yourself--have things gotten better or worse since Obama took office? Unemployment is higher. Economic growth is negative. Housing is in a depression. The stock market doesn't know whether to go up or down. Deficits are in the trillions. Afghanistan's Prime Minister said that he would take the side of Pakistan if America went to war against Pakistan. Foreign leaders don't respect this president. All of this is predictable. The president's ideology is statism, that is, the state should be in control of as much of the economy and in our lives as possible. (Look at the Soviet Union to see how this works in practice). President Obama is not a leader. He has done a terrible job and Karen Bass has not done her proper duty in proposing legislation that will repeal the damage that this president has done.

You can tell that we have too many college grads when you have these #occupy folks protesting being in debt for $250,000 to major in a worthless sociology degree. Sorry folks, but reality is reality: there is no demand for the claptrap you learned. You got in debt. Voluntarily. China didn't do it. Wall Street didn't do it. If anything, Democrats in Congress and college administrators lied to you and said if you don't borrow hundreds of thousands for this worthless degree, you'll work at McDonald's. But now you are working at Starbucks... (not that there's anything wrong with Starbucks).
Obama wanted to apologize for nuking Japan, but Japan told him no! The main reason why they didn’t want Obama to apologize for nuking Japan is because it would only cause more of their own anti-nuke activists to protest the nuclear power industry in Japan.

Obama apparently is trying to enact the American Jobs Act without Congress! But according to the United States Constitution, only Congress, not the executive branch, can spend federal money. How does this man think that he can spend money without congressional authorization?

The CIA must be unleashed to take all efforts abroad to defeat every foe of American liberty. For too long, the CIA has become a government agency with tons of bureaucrats reading foreign newspapers. (How is it possible to know about what is going on in foreign countries when we are just reading foreign newspapers?) We will never advance the American agenda (i.e., liberty) agenda that way. CIA agents must have the capacity to take out authoritarian, fascist, communist, and Islamofascist leaders anywhere in the world when those regimes are a threat to our national security. (Iran definitely fits this definition). Further, the CIA must have the capacity to create shell corporations that advance the American agenda, delegitimize and demoralize Islamofascism, and positively promote the American way of life -- worldwide.

A bunch of cry baby ethnic front-groups are demanding that John and Ken be taken off the air on KFI’s 640am station in Los Angeles. The truth is that these front groups for foreign nations don’t like any opposition to what they are doing. They do not want anyone to be informed about the fact that these influence peddlers are demanding that the government use force, confiscate wealth from American taxpayers, and transfer it to foreign nationals who are not in the country legally.

North Carolina Democrat Gov. Beverly Perdue has asked that congressional elections be canceled! Yes, she said it! Canceling elections in America and creating a dictatorship? The Democratic Party way! This is the logical consequence of following a statist ideology. After massively increasing the size and scope of government, mandating what you can eat, what kind of car you may drive, the light bulbs you have in your home, what kind of health care you may receive, it's just a logical next step to say that you are not competent to elect your leaders either. Democrats oppose representative government because they know the people, properly informed, will oppose Democrats. (Thomas Friedman once famously said that we should be China for a day--you know, on election day).

My impression of Obama's jobs bill. Obama: "Pass this bill." Um, what bill? "Pass it!" What, shouldn't we discuss it? "Obama: Can't. We're in a hurry. Just pass it, and read it later." Shouldn't we think it over? Obama: "NO! Pass it now." But it's not even written yet. Obama: "Doesn't matter. Just pass the damn thing now."
Any idiotic nation can destroy its health care system. Obama claimed that we would love Obamacare. It’s so unpopular he won’t talk about it, nor will he campaign on this so-called “landmark” law. For over one hundred years, Americans said that they do not want government-run health care. What did Obama do? He said, I don’t care. He signed it with glee, laughing at the American people who will suffer from this law. But thankfully, we will overcome. We will repeal Obamacare.

"Article 99" is an amazing field precisely because it comes from Hollywood, which has said for years that government-run health care is some sort of utopia. The film, however, shows a different story. The film shows the inhumane, bureaucratic-focus of health care when administered by a government agency. Patients come last and are considered merely numbers. Doctors are not permitted to consider the needs of their patients. Rather, patients (in this case veterans) receive sub-standard, rationed care. This movie is a wake up call, and proves that government-run health care is not about health care, but about government power. Government-run health care must be opposed, including for veterans. Rather than run this terrible VA system, veterans should receive vouchers to shop for health care on the free-market.

Democrats recently voted against an amendment that would have required that “that the rules of engagement [ROE] allow any military service personnel assigned to duty in a designated hostile fire area to have rules of engagement that fully protect their right to proactively defend themselves from hostile actions.” Democrats overwhelmingly voted against providing the military with the means to protect themselves from hostile fire. 77% of Democrats voted against this amendment.

Government-run education confiscates money from the productive and subsidizes malcontents, irrationality, and devours even the concept of "education." UCSD is eliminating master’s degrees in electrical and computer engineering, but it is adding more bureaucracy dedicated to diversity. When you think of productive endeavors that improve the world, do you look to electrical engineers, or "diversity studies" PhDs?

South Bay Republican Craig Huey lost, 45% to Janice Hahn's 54%. Craig Huey received a higher percentage of the vote in this district than gubernatorial candidate Bill Simon, George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, John McCain, Meg Whitman, and Carly Fiorina. How? He is a principled, conservative tea party candidate running in a heavily Democrat district. Almost won. Run a conservative like Huey nationwide to defeat Obama.

While you’re being harassed by TSA agents to take off your shoes, let them touch you in intimate locations, and bark orders to you as though you’re in a North Korean prison camp, a Nigerian immigrant has been able to use boarding passes that were not in his name and actually get on a commercial airline! Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi flew from NYC to LA using an expired boarding pass in another man’s name. During the flight, airline officials noticed that he was in a seat that was unsold. They alerted the Los Angeles police department, the FBI, and TSA. Incredibly, he was released without charge when he landed! Yes, while you’re being harassed, the federal government is letting dangerous people like this out loose! Could it be that TSA was created not for the purpose of security, but mainly as a jobs program for incompetent buffoons (in much the same way that our schools are a “jobs” program for incompetent teachers)?
By the way, Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi was recently arrested for trying the same scheme again when he was trying to board a Delta flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta.

South Bay Democrat Congressional candidate Janice Hahn gang controversy is not going away. South Bay voters: Janice Hahn is bad news. At worst, she hires dangerous gang members to handle “gang intervention” work (whatever that means). At best, she is an incompetent buffoon. Don’t elect her, especially because you have better choices with Craig Huey.

Opposing the war in Libya is not isolationism or pacifism, contrary to what Sen. McCain and the Wall Street Journal suggest. Rather, it is about preserving the United States Military for its constitutional purpose: to protect the United States from foreign invasion, protect American assets, and to project a credible deterrent to our enemies. The US military was not created to protect foreigners from civil wars. Using our military resources when it is not needed erodes our ability to respond to true threats to our national security.

Well, it’s official. Obama hates Israel. Well, anyone observing his public statements would have already arrived at this conclusion. Obama is not a moderate. He follows his leftist principles to their logical conclusion. He does not like freedom, free people, republics, or Western civilization. It stands to reason, then, that this is why he opposes America, yes, his own country, as well as Israel. Perhaps this is lost on many people who were led to believe that Obama was some post-ideological hero who would end all divisions. Not so. He will only create more divisions because that is all he knows. This is a man who has never had a job in his life until he became president. And the American people thought it fit to make him president.

Michelle Malkin: Why do we still run the Diversity Visa Lottery, anyway?! Good point.
"Let me just first of all say that workers ... for the federal, state and local governments are so important for our vital services, and it frustrates me sometimes when people talk about 'government jobs' as if somehow those are worth less than private sector jobs. I think there is nothing more important than working on behalf of the American people." --Barack Obama, who has never had a real job in his life
Has Obama ever said anything remotely like this about private sector jobs? He has referred to bankers as “fat cats,” told Americans not to go to Vegas, and said that Republicans should not listen to Rush Limbaugh, a private citizen. Seems like the only people Obama would like to see working are government workers!

The government controls in Detroit have failed, resulting in a mass exodus of the population. But economic statists like Michael Bloomberg do not suggest removing the government economic controls, but rather placing more new restrictions on immigrants--namely, that on condition of living in a free country, they must live in the least free part of the country, Detroit. Does that make any sense!?

Killing Bin Ladin is a victorious battle in a larger, ideological war against Islamofascism. I wish I could say that the war is over. It is not. Islamofascism is a movement far larger than one person. To defeat it, it will require military resources to remove Islamofascist regimes (Iran, for instance) and a committed, ideological war of ideas to undermine Islamofascism and show the superiority of capitalist, representative republics. The first step, which our leaders have never ackowledged, is that it is an ideological war. We're at war with Islamofascism. Evading this fact does not help the cause.

Obama once again says government made America great?
"I will not reduce our deficit by sacrificing the things that have always made America great. The things that have made Americans prosper. I won't sacrifice our investments in education. I will not sacrifice those. I won't sacrifice our investments in science and basic research. I won't sacrifice the safety of our highways or our airports. I won't sacrifice our investment in clean energy at a time when our dependence on foreign oil is causing Americans so much pain at the pump. I will not sacrifice America's future. That I will not do." --Barack Obama

Obama recently said that he needs to raise taxes on the "rich" so that people like Warren Buffett will pay higher taxes. However, Mr. Buffett as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has control over his salary, and has kept it so low that none of Obama's new taxes will inflict him. His salary is currently $100,000. In the Wall Street Journal, Obama has been quoted as saying:
“The point is, for the vast majority of Americans," Mr. Obama said, "every dime you earn, you're paying some in Social Security. But for Warren Buffett, he stops paying at a little bit over $100,000 and then the next $50 billion he's not paying a dime in Social Security taxes. So if we just made a little bit of an adjustment in terms of the cap on Social Security, that would do a significant amount to stabilize the system."
Warren Buffett only makes $100,000, so Mr. Obama could increase payroll taxes enormously, and Mr. Warren Buffett would not owe a single dime more in tax. What is even more outrageous is Obama’s contention that Warren Buffett makes $50 billion in a single year. How could that be possible? Berkshire Hathaway’s market cap is $203 billion, so a salary of $50 billion would mean that 24% of the assets of Berkshire Hathaway would be transferred to Mr. Buffett in the form of salary each and every year. Meanwhile, in the process, the market cap would inevitably decline as a result of such a high salary. But Obama doesn’t really care about facts. If it helps him argue for higher taxes, he is more than happy to provide such an argument. Meanwhile, if the public agrees with Obama’s gross distortion of the issue, with the expectation that a higher tax would "punish" Buffett then they are in for a surprise as these higher taxes only hurt those who aspire to become wealthy.

"The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff. ... I'm like, 'C'mon guys, I'm the president of the United States. Where's the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up?' It doesn't happen." – President Barack Hussein Obama.
I was told this president was so intelligent. But he sounds more like a valley girl if you ask me.
“We have to do something about health care costs, which means that we have to find a way to start saying no. In particular, given continuing medical innovation, we can’t maintain a system in which Medicare essentially pays for anything a doctor recommends.” – Paul Krugman in the New York Times.
This is ironic because the liberals have been arguing that private health insurance companies are evil for denying health care treatment. Now Paul Krugman, a liberal, is endorsing a government politburo that will ration health care for millions of Americans! But that has always been the purpose of the statists. They want to be in control over health care, not because they love the people, but rather because they despise the people and want to use the government to ration their liberty. Thus, the purpose of Medicare is not to extend health care to the elderly, but rather to ration their care.

Obama said America was not a great country until we were a large welfare state. Does this sound like a man who loves American ideals like capitalism and individualism?
“[W]e contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security, which guarantee us health care and a measure of basic income after a lifetime of hard work; unemployment insurance, which protects us against unexpected job loss; and Medicaid, which provides care for millions of seniors in nursing homes, poor children, and those with disabilities. We are a better country because of these commitments. I’ll go further – we would not be a great country without those commitments.”
Isn’t that outrageous!?

Most Americans don’t care if the non-essential aspects of the government gets shut down. Bring on the shut downs!
The media is acting as though most Americans care whether "non-essential" government services will be shut down if there isn't an agreement on the federal budget. I know I don't. That means only the "essential," constitutional functions of government will continue to operate. That's what we want anyway!

What a legacy.

Barack Obama’s web site hosts blogger who says United States supported “right-wing” death squads in Latin America
As a general rule, I occasionally read Letters to the Editor as a form of humor. However, one completely irrational letter to the editor to the LA Times caught my attention. In the letter, Roger Carasso said that the U.S. has “repeatedly supported right-wing repression and death squads in Latin America,” and that “U.S. had a chance to undo that legacy by recognizing the Cuban government.” So the United States must recognize Cuba’s right to brutalize its own citizens, abridge their freedom to peacefully assemble, elect their own representatives, and to have economic liberties? Such a society should not receive any recognition from the civilized world.
I was thinking, who is this nut? Well, well, you’ll be surprised. I did a Google search for him and found a “Roger Carasso blog” on the “Organizing for America” site on my.barackobama.com! Yes, it’s the president’s web site!

"Rarely is there new wisdom. Frequently are there forgotten lessons. 'The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.' --Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC)

Congresswoman Betty McCollum, D-Minn recently proposed a law prohibiting The Defense Department from spending money on advertisements for NASCAR. Democrats claim that this is “wasteful” spending, but that’s actually not true. What is the point of the advertising? It is to recruit patriotic Americans to join the military. Who tends to go to NASCAR races? Patriotic Americans! The advertisements, then, do serve the purpose of advancing our national security interests by placing advertisements in a place that are highly likely to appeal to patriotic Americans. Democrats hate the military, and NASCAR, so it makes sense why they would propose such a shameful law.
Democrats have utter contempt for the voters who elect them. This week, Barack Obama’s organization, “Organize for America,” is taking efforts to organize thousands of union thugs to bully the state legislature and the Republican governor of Wisconsin from passing the modest rule that union members pay more for their own health care and retirement benefits. Imagine that—asking union members to pay for their own benefits! They don’t want to pay for it. They want citizens to pay for these benefits instead of themselves.

It looks more and more like the Egyptian revolution is not one against authoritarian government, but rather an Islamic, totalitarian movement that is even worse than the prior regime. Not surprisingly, Obama seems to support the idea of an Islamist Egypt, just as he betrayed the people of Honduras by supporting a Chavez-style dictator, and the people of Iran, who truly were interested in removing an anti-American regime. The only pattern is Obama is against the pro-American regimes and always favors the anti-American one. Coincidence?

Liberty has returned to America, at least temporarily. A federal judge ruled that Congress does not have authority granted by the US Constitution to regulate individuals who choose not to partake in interstate commerce, either directly or indirectly. If Congress had the authority to compel citizens to purchase products from private companies, then the limits of the federal government will have been completely eviscerated. Interestingly, the federal judge noted that the Obamacare law does not have a severability clause. He wrote: “Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void. This has been a difficult decision to reach, and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications.”
Great day to be an American!

Does he really care about either of these issues? NO!
This is a great line to provide in a nationwide speech that a broad swath of Americans are listening to. But will he act upon any of these principles? No. It's just another Obama speech, meant to be purely symbolic, but which translates into little or no action.

Americans have a much more positive view of the Republican-led Congress, and they just recently were sworn into office on January 5. The approval rating of Congress has recently risen from 13% to 20%. That might not seem like a huge difference, but that’s nearly a 55% change! Americans also like Speaker of the House, John Boehner. He has a public approval rating of 42%. By contrast, Nancy Pelosi’s disapproval is 54%! Her highest approval ever was 44%!
Wednesday, January 05, 2011
John A. Boehner is now Speaker of the House of Representatives. Americans are no longer held hostage to the Pelosi Democrats' far-left agenda of higher taxes, more government programs, agencies, commissions, rules, regulations, laws, and higher unemployment. Americans spoke quite clearly that they don't want Congress to bankrupt our nation with their failed ideology. Americans love this country because it is based upon liberty. Liberty means that individuals should be free to pursue their own objectives without coercion by other men, namely, government agents. Now the hard work begins in terms of repealing the socialist legislation that Nancy Pelosi passed while she was Speaker. This isn’t going to be easy. The Democrats have been trying to pass socialist legislation for over a century, and they had this narrow two-year window of opportunity and they rammed through as much as they can. Now we must slow Obama down, reverse course from the socialist direction we’ve been heading in, and then advance our agenda of liberty.

Paul Krugman, the obnoxious New York Times “economist,” said something I can somewhat agree with: “We wouldn’t get to anything resembling full employment until late in Sarah Palin’s first presidential term.”
