Michael Moore’s film will be subsidized by taxpayers

Moore's hypocrisy knows no bounds.

In Michael Moore's 2009 film "Capitalism: A Love Story," Michigan native Michael Moore went to Wall Street with a request to corporate officials whose companies received bailout money from the federal government. Moore was criticizing an economic system he calls "legalized greed," but the Mackinac Center has discovered that Moore's movie qualified for a windfall — at the expense of Michigan taxpayers.

This story, which broke yesterday evening, is spreading like wildfire through the blogosphere and has already been picked up in National Review Online, Baltimore Sun, and the Daily Caller.  To read the story click here.

We need a Illinois Miracle

The Illinois Senate primary is coming up this Tuesday, February 2nd

...4 days away

 

The Republican front runner is Mark Kirk, an Illinois representative who was one of only 8 Republicans who voted for Cap and Trade; and who voted for the TARP bailouts.

 

Meanwhile, the majority of tea party and 912 groups in Illinois have been backing Judge Don Lowery as the "we the people" candidate to take out Mark Kirk.... and the Independence Caucus has vetted and endorsed Judge Lowery.

 

An Independence Caucus research team has been looking into Mark Kirk's money trail back to the 30 companies that got 95% of all the TARP money. (Kirk voted in favor of TARP)

 

Results have just been posted on this YOU TUBE clip:

Wait until you see how much money Kirk has been receiving each month from those 30 bailout companies since he voted for TARP...it's simply amazing.

 

PLEASE review the video and forward this information to everyone you know.....the election is just 4 days away and voters in Illinois need to see this information before they vote!

Former Pacific Fleet Commander warns Obama: "Don't Link Climate Change and National Security"

Former top military commander warns Obama against linking climate change and national security; calls for independent review

Washington, DC (Jan. 27) - Ahead of the State of the Union address and in the wake of recent and ongoing climate science scandals, President Obama should appoint an independent panel of experts to evaluate the purported climate change-national security link, urged Adm. James A. Lyons, Jr., USN (Ret.), former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet and Chairman of the Center for Security Policy's Military Committee.

The supposed relationship between climate change and national security "is too important an issue to be driven by unsubstantiated claims, tainted by scandal, and to result in counterproductive policies," Adm. Lyons stated in the open letter.

Adm. Lyons' letter points out that both the ongoing Climategate scandal involving senior United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scientists and the IPCC's recent admission-of-error and retraction of the claim that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035 have rocked confidence in often-repeated assertions that capping emissions of greenhouse gases will improve national security.

"Before we adopt policies that affect military-preparedness and national security, it is imperative that we act on honest assessments of the best available information," Adm. Lyons said. "When it comes to the climate change-national security link and the cap-and-trade legislation now being considered by Congress, any confidence in scientific pronouncements that may have existed in 2009 does not exist in 2010," Adm. Lyons added.

"In light of media reports that President Obama plans to emphasize the climate change-national security link in his State of the Union address, I am asking the President to acknowledge recent developments and to appoint an expert panel whose independence is beyond reproach to sort out fact from fiction," Adm. Lyons concluded.

Freedom -- a fading vision in America?

Do yourself a favor and read this article from Lew Rockwell today before the SOTU speech tonight. It is a wonderful piece of writing that reminds us all how freedom is slipping away so quickly that it almost seems "normal." It will also remind you during the speech that you are hearing a brand of propaganda from someone who has no real concept of "freedom."

Enjoy the speech tonight. It's bound to be an entertaining work of fiction.


Participate in the State of the Union tonight with the NRCC

The NRCC is making an online chat available to Republicans today/tonight to discuss the State of Obama speech. Here's the scoop, directly from their email to me today.



Tonight Barack Obama will give his first State of the Union address, and try to explain why he failed to deliver on every promise he made upon taking office.

This year's State of the Union address will be a key moment for Democrats and we want to hear your thoughts and questions as it happens. We have two ways for you play an active role in the GOP discussion during and after the speech.
  • Beginning right now through the address, if you text Union to 777218 you will receive information and a link to participate in our online text chat room.
  • Immediately after the speech I invite you to pose questions to House Republicans who will answer your questions via streaming video. Please go to http://nrcc.org/stateoftheunion/ to participate.
Both of these opportunities allow you to have your voice heard, learn inside information about where the Republican Party stands heading into the mid-term elections and interact with guests such as Former Congressman Tom Davis, Grover Norquist, Fred and Jeri Thompson to name a few.

I hope you'll take advantage of these special opportunities by texting Union to 777218 today and visiting www.nrcc.org/stateoftheunion/.

Webinars on "Healthcare Reform"

Upcoming "healthcare reform" webinars:
For Patients on Jan. 27th and
Physicians on Feb. 2nd.

On January 27th - 2pm Eastern - Patient Town Hall:
Patient Power - Take Back Medicine Now!

Republicans are exulting over the defeat of Martha Coakley in Massachusetts and the seeming defeat of the "healthcare reform" bill. Even so, the Progressive movement is ramping up efforts to salvage the "healthcare reform" that the voters just trounced. And some Republicans, along with the AMA, support them. Let your voice be heard. In this webinar you will learn what you can do NOW to stop Congress from destroying health care in America. The healthcare debate is not about health care. It's about who controls healthcare.

U.S. Senate Candidate Cherilyn Eagar (R-UT) will host this event, featuring Kathryn Serkes, Director of Policy and Public Affairs for the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons. Ms. Serkes will tell you what you can do as a patient to protect yourself from nationalized health care.

Recently Cherilyn Eagar launched Operation 2010: Take Back Medicine, a six-step grassroots campaign to stop nationalized health care. She will give you a plan of action to fight back as the 2010 Congressional Session begins.

Invite your friends and together we can and WILL win this one for our children and grandchildren's future of freedom.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE JANUARY 27th WEBINAR


On February 2nd - 9pm Eastern - Physician Town Hall:
Protect Your Profession from a Hostile Government Takeover

U.S. Senate Candidate Cherilyn Eagar (R-UT) will host this event, featuring Kathryn Serkes, AAPS Director of Policy and Public Affairs, Juliette Madrigal-Dersch, M.D. of Marble Falls, TX, and George Watson, D.O. of Wichita, KS.

Ms. Serkes will share what you can do as a doctor to protect your profession from nationalized health care. Also joining in will be two physicians with a patient-doctor direct practice model. Dr. Madrigal-Dersch and Dr. Watson work directly for their patients and not for third parties such as big insurance and government programs.

Recently Cherilyn Eagar launched a six-step grassroots campaign to stop nationalized health care. She will share a doctor-friendly plan of action to fight back as the 2010 Congressional Session begins.

Cherilyn Eagar is the daughter of an internationally-respected urological surgeon Samuel K. Bacon M.D., former Chief of Staff, Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, Adjunct Professor USC School of Medicine and California Board of Medical Examiners. She is passionate about protecting doctors and patients from nationalized health care.

Health care solutions that make sense!

This neurosurgeon, David McKalip, M.D., has long been opposed to "Obamacare" and has written several articles on the subject. I strongly advocate the system of Healthcare Spending Accounts and moving Medicare from a government-mismanaged program to a savings systems as well.

This is his most current article. Read what he has to say. It's enlightening because he hits both sides of the argument over who controls your "right" to access healthcare that a doctor may prescribe for you. Liberals say it's the insurance companies (and it is, to some degree) and Conservatives say that, if yet another government healthcare program is passed, it will be the government bureaucrats. We're all right. So what do we do about it?

This doc hits the nail on the head with a rational solution that works well now and could help reform the mess created by government as well.

An American Uprising (Timeline 1-10/2009)



The song behind this video is simply awesome! Having been involved in the Tea Parties and the 9-12 March on DC, this was a really nice walk back through the movement last year for me.

I hope you enjoy too!

Oh yeah? Well, here's his chance!

"I will conduct an immediate and periodic public inventory of administrative offices and functions and require agency leaders to work together to root out redundancy. Where consolidation is not the right strategy to improve efficiency, I will improve information sharing and use of common assets to minimize wasteful duplication."

Senator Coburn (R-OK) is handing it to him on a silver platter. Let's see how quickly he takes advantage of yet another chance to fulfill a campaign promise, shall we?

Talk Show/Fair Tax Author, Neal Boortz, joins GOOOH

TALK SHOW HOST NEAL BOORTZ JOINS GOOOH

[...]

"The GOOOH movement seeks to unite Tea Party, conservative, moderate and liberal groups to replace all 435 members of the House of Representatives by selecting citizen candidates independent of special interest money and two-party politics. Many Americans resent the strongarm tactics employed recently to push a Healthcare Bill through the Congress, despite polls showing a majority of Americans do not want the legislation in its current form. Recently, the Abigail Adams Project and Fair Tax Nation have decided to work together with GOOOH to restore representation to the House.
"

GOOOH get 'em, Neal!

Media bias -- no longer subtle

Case Study in New York Times Bias, Coakley/Brown Edition

I think every reasonable person understands that we process experience and reality through our own carefully-crafted set of filters; however, even in Journalism 101, we were taught better than this! The NYT has finally decided to just let their bias flag fly, I suppose.

Coakley Campaigners Posting Signs Near Polling Locations Busted in Lawrence, MA

Well, this is good news! With just 3 more hours to go now, I guess better late than never. There can never be enough citizen "sheriffs" in an election like this one.

Coakley Campaigners Posting Signs Near Polling Locations Busted in Lawrence, MA

January 19th, 2010, Lawrence, MA--

Part 1: A van that we have seen previously today shows up again planting signs. A guy got out of it. He blindsides our cameraman, he curses, and bumps him. In the bump his finger hits the stop record. He realizes and records again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuxwMxVB4gw

Part 2: The van is documented, and they explain what happened. http://www.youtube.com/user/lawrenceelection#p/u/3/bjtZANLnk8g


Part 3: They explain to the offenders the violation. http://www.youtube.com/user/lawrenceelection#p/u/2/MdRhOuKXlO0

Part 4: The offenders move the signs. http://www.youtube.com/user/lawrenceelection#p/u/1/XlThSFG4z3k

Election Observer: Coakley worker offers to buy poll workers lunch, told by cop to "sit down"

I don't know about the People's Republic of Mass. but here in Kentucky, it's illegal to buy or make and bring in lunch for poll workers.

A Scott heard 'round the world!

To borrow a phrase I heard from someone in Massachusetts...

"The Second Revolution has begun with the Scott heard 'round the world!"

After reading the posts on Boston.com's Poll Watchers site and hearing from my sister-in-law today, I feel more confident than ever that people in Massachusetts have our back today. I am absolutely glowing with optimism that, provided the abundant potential for fraud is kept in check, the people in Massachusetts are going to elect the 41st vote against Obama's fascist health care takeover!

Thanks, Massachusetts voters!!!


Watching the Poll Watchers

At Boston.com's Senate Race 2010 website, you can check out the votes, the atmosphere, and the commentary of people who are voting in Massachusetts today. Some of these are actually pretty darned funny! (Check out Abington's poll watcher commentaries.)


MA. Polling Official: "We Have to Call City Hall" Before Signs Removed

It's called "electioneering," folks. Apparently it's going on all over the place today.
(Maybe we need to call in the UN Election Monitors, eh?)

Special Election Alert: Warden a no-show, police open machine

Poll workers are trained thoroughly here in Kentucky. Apparently, expectations and training are either non-existent or the bar is set awfully low in Massachusetts. I've worked the polls for several elections in this state and what is reported here is obscenely wrong. Elections matter, folks. That poll warden ought to be dismissed.


Warden a no-show, police open machine

By Andrew W. Griffin
Oklahoma Watchdog, editor

LAWRENCE, Mass. — At the Essex Towers senior public housing, voters are being allowed to vote despite the poll warden not showing up. According to a poll watcher for Republican candidate Scott Brown, a Lawrence Police Department officer unlocked the ballot box. This was observed by Americans for Limited Government, and Brown and Martha Coakley poll watchers.

The poll warden had taken a child to school, according to one observer. The police later opened a polling machine for a handicapped man. There was still no evidence of a poll warden one hour after the polls opened.

Special Election Alert: Teacher -- 'I'm really in enemy territory'

I'll try to keep you all posted today via email into my blog from my sources.

Good luck today, Scott Brown!

Those of us outside of Massachusetts are pulling for you every bit as much as those on the right side of history in your own state!!

Teacher: 'I'm really in enemy territory'

By Andrew W. Griffin
Oklahoma Watchdog, editor

LAWRENCE, Mass. — Minutes after the polls opened at Guilmette School here in Lawrence, school teacher Diane MacDonald drove up into the parking lot in a car sporing a Scott Brown for Senate bumper sticker in her back window. Stopping her to talk, MacDonald told Oklahoma Watchdog that for over a week she had been blasted with emails from her teacher's union telling her and other teachers to be sure and vote for Democrat Martha Coakley.

Pointing to her Brown sticker, MacDonald smiled and said, "I'm really in enemy territory being a school teacher." Noting the pro-Coakley email blasts from her union, MacDonald added: "They are using school computers to send out those emails. That's illegal."

MacDonald said that while "you can't do that," referring to using public computers to send partisan messages, she said that she'd be looking for trouble by responding.

Still, other teachers have whispered to MacDonald that they are supportive of Brown but are afraid to voice their opinions publicly.

Second Revolution - Let's get GOOOHing!

It was implied a few months ago, when I posted a picture of the Flag of the Second Revolution, that I had lost my marbles. Maybe I have but not in the way the commenters might have thought...

The Second Revolution will probably not be televised and it will probably not require a call to arms. What it will require is that we clean House. Yes, "House" with a capital H. I believe the Speaker of the House promised to "drain the swamp" when she and her ilk were granted the majority in the House and Senate last election cycle. Well, apparently she has no intention of keeping that promise. Did we REALLY expect her to keep that promise? Really?

Well, since she isn't keeping her promises and many of the Republicans don't either, the revolutionaries behind GOOOH will be doing it for all of us. And now, folks, you're officially "in" on what we might call the Second Revolution!

I attended a GOOOH ("Get Out Of Our House") mock selection process meet-up yesterday here in Louisville, Ky along with 17 other concerned citizens. I had read the website and some of the literature about GOOOH but had not actually witnessed the process that will be used to select representatives from each congressional district.

This was a mock session so it did not include all of the questions and all of the time that would normally be required to select candidates for election. However, it was enough of a representation of the process that it was educational and inspirational. This could be the answer for which many of us have been waiting.

We worked in groups of six. We had a little time to find out about each other through introductions. We answered a sample number of the questions from the GOOOH candidate questionnaire -- which you can read for yourself online. We heard each other's views on the questions we had answered. We were given opportunities to persuade others of the merit behind our answers or to defend our positions on our answers where we differed. Then we got to vote a secret ballot for the person in our group who would best represent us. Simple, no? Wouldn't it be nice if we were empowered to select our party candidates this way?

This process brings the concept of "representational Republic" back home to where it began -- with The People. This movement is a freight train gaining steam, folks. If you are ready to fire Congress, a darned good place to start is by cleaning House. GOOOH has the plan and the momentum to make this happen provided the citizens are ready to elect true Citizen Representatives and dump the career politicians.

Listen, I'm no pushover. I don't invest my energy in third-party politics without a hell of a lot of thought and soul searching. (My vote for Ron Paul last election was the beginning of this journey in earnest.) I'm tired of what Laura (Louisville's GOOOH Leader) calls "fear-based voting." I'm no longer voting for a Republican I cannot support because I'm afraid a Democrat may win if I don't. I am ready to vote based on my own desire to do the right thing for myself and my family. I think a whole lot of other folks are too.

The quality of the people present at this Meet-up yesterday really brought home the truth and the power of this movement. We had everyone from retirees to young voters, union workers to entrepreneurs, Democrats to Libertarians, social liberals to social conservatives, fundamentalist Christians to heathens like myself. The main thing we all have in common was an honest and thoughtful regard for the United States Constitution and an overwhelming disgust with the complete lack of attention given to it by current Representatives in Congress. They have stopped representing The People and made careers out of representing only the views of the special interests who help get them elected and re-elected time and time again.

The most impressive thing I heard yesterday came from a fellow in my group who is a fundamentalist Christian who had difficulty choosing whether he would vote for or against legislation that would legally permit people to choose euthanasia for themselves if the situation merited such a personal choice.

He said, "As a Christian, I don't think I could personally vote for such a law. Taking your life is against the Bible. I would have to get input from the people I represent before I could cast a vote. If they wanted it, I'd vote for it regardless of my own views on it."

Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is what makes GOOOH worth the effort. That is what a representative Republic is all about. That is "serving" your country.

Whether your views are more liberal or more conservative, GOOOH returns representation to the People in every district. It's a non-partisan "party" in that the selection process helps people determine who best represents their views. Folks in San Francisco districts will probably select more liberal GOOOH candidates where folks in Western Kentucky will probably select more conservative GOOOH candidates. How often does that actually happen with candidates who are financed and selected by the RNC or the DNC? ...Never?...

I suggest you look at GOOOH very carefully to see if it's for you. If it is, get involved now. You may find yourself serving your country and steering a course for this great nation back to the principles that made it great. At a time when service in the House seems out of reach for the average American, it's time to end careers and begin "service."

Congrats to Scott Brown!

Congratulations on a very nice endorsement for the future Senator from New York!



Good luck on Tuesday, Scott. My sister-in-law in Fall River will probably be helping boost your tally that day. Many patriots from all over this nation will be pulling for you!

Germans know how to protest!


From The Muschinski's description of the video on YouTube:

"The underwear bomber's Christmas Day attack has prompted calls for the increased use of full-body scanners at airports.

So to protest, members of the Pirate Party in Germany organized a fleshmob of people who stripped down to their skivvies last Sunday and converged on the Berlin-Tegal airport.

The protesters marked their bodies with a number of messages such as, 'Something to hide?' and 'Be a good citizen — drop your pants.' " [...]

So I suppose it all comes down to this, eh? We dare not profile, lest we offend Amir and his right to pack a bomb in his panties.

A great big thanks to Germany's Pirate Party for making a statement that many of us would like to make but have too much flab to feel good about making in public. Well done!!

Goodbye 2009; Hello 2010!

As a kiss-off to a really sucky year, for your entertainment, I present my favorite Obama cartoon from 2009. Thanks, Glenn McCoy (genius)!




And as a prelude to good things to come in 2010, enjoy the following two videos.






See you at the ballot box, Patriots!
