HUMANITARIANISM TRUMPS ECONOMIC IGNORANCE
August 11, 2014
The Obama Administration and Attorney General Eric Holder have taken a “nation of laws” and perverted it into a nation where elected leaders have the audacity to ignore laws they don’t agree with or which they find to be politically expedient not to enforce. Our Constitutional balance of power has been turned on its head, and lawlessness has been officially endorsed. Our immigration laws are ignored and illegal aliens, like the spotted owl in Oregon’s forests, have become a protected class, not by law but by presidential decree and political correctness.
DEMOCRATS SAY REPUBLICANS HAVE NO HEART
At a July 29, 2014 Congressional Progressive Caucus Committee (A Communist front) hearing played on C-Span, several young illegal “refugees” gave their testimony why they wanted to come to America. Following them were child advocates with the usual vested interests. Democrat Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tx) with a current Constitutional score of 34% had a replica of a heart that she wanted to put on her lapel and was encouraging others to do likewise. The Razzle Dazzle well orchestrated shell game is meant to divert attention from the destructive policies and warped intentions of Obama and his crew. Oregonians should take note that Democrats Suzanne Bonamici and Peter DeFazio are also members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus Committee. Bonamici with a 30% Constitutional voting record & DeFazio with 40% (2)
heart was to let Republicans know the bill the Democrats had drafted
showed they have a heart for these children. Certainly we are not gullible
enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American
children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance
of the U.S. government. No, it has been heartless corrupt politicians
and their minions lusting for more money and power who would dare abuse
children like this. One FOX news analyst said the government is paying
$7,400 a month to people who will take
these children into their homes. Will the perverts line up and this
surely should take care of some of our unemployed numbers. In addition,
I find it interesting that none of the conservative radio talk shows
nor FOX have bothered to remind the people about NAFTA
and these other trade agreements as the cause of this invasion of “refugees”
from Central America. Perhaps it is because NAFTA was enacted under
Democrat Bill Clinton with the blessing of the Republicans and talk
show host Rush Limbaugh.
Sycophants in public office see our military as nothing more than cannon fodder when they send them off to fight wars www.newswithviews.com/Weeks/darren120.htm oftentimes where we should not have been involved and then cut budgets and treat them poorly at V.A. hospitals when they return. Our dedicated military protect the borders elsewhere while ours remain open and these unscrupulous Democrat scallywags have absolutely no shame when it comes to using children as pawns to complete this New World Order plan and then have the nerve to call it humanitarianism – another lie.
TRAUMATIZED CHILD ABANDONMENT
Prominent psychologists have diagnosed President Obama, who was tossed to and fro between the communists in his young years, as suffering from an abandonment disorder so can you imagine the problems the U.S. will face when thousands of Barack Obama’s are turned lose in years to come and they’ll all be registered as Democrats? Only a highly unlikely robust economy will keep them off the entitlement rolls but humanitarianism trumps economic ignorance.
How many readers heard Congress woman pro-choice Catholic Nancy Pelosi say to Congress, “Jesus would say children at the border should be brought in to the U.S.” Maybe Miss Lube job Pelosi should read Mark 9:42 in the Bible where it tells what judgment awaits such deceivers as Pelosi and her ilk for the way they have used these innocent children to advance their communist U.N. agenda. She also said they had to pass the (UN)Affordable Care Act to know what was in it.
DEFICIT SPENDING CAUSES COUNTRY TO COLLAPSE
In his 1978 book A TIME FOR TRUTH, William E. Simon, Secretary of the Treasury first under President Nixon, and after Watergate, President Gerald Ford, explains how he fought long and hard for the four years he was Treasury to educate both the Republicans and the Democrats how deficit spending and the excessive growth of the money supply helps to aggravate inflation which is, above all, an attack on the poor because it means their few dollars can buy less and less. This is why President Obama is now pushing to raise the minimum raise. While big corporations may be able to pay higher wages, it will be devastating to the small business man – the backbone of this nation’s free enterprise system- and fewer jobs will be available pushing more people into entitlements for which we must borrow money to pay.
REPUBLICANS JUST DON’T GET IT
Simon succeeded in some measure in taking his case to the people and the thousands of miles he had traveled to awaken the public to the dangers of continuing these economically suicidal policies. August 8, 2014 is the 40th anniversary since President Nixon resigned. He gave us Affirmative Action, the overzealous Environmental Protection Agency and opened doors to China and Russia. President Ford pardoned Nixon and did veto many spending bills but Simon had personal quarrels within the Republican hierarchy and the attacks upon him for trying to expose the dangerous deficit spending that both parties were doing. Even within the Republican Party that is supposed to be committed to fiscal responsibility, there was no unified or coherent support for GOP political figures interested in seeking to fight a principles battle. He said he could respect the Democrats who fought him on the grounds of moral principle but he could not respect those in his own GOP party who fought him and betrayed their own alleged principles and the voters as well just to placate the liberal opposition. The GOP hierarchy claimed the spending bills President Ford had vetoed caused them to lose the election and they blamed Simon.
It should be noted that after the way Simon was demonized for his stand against deficit spending that causes inflation, many informed men outside of government were disturbed by the attacks on him. In late 1976, just before he left office, Tom Clausen, President of the Bank of America, was being considered by President Carter for the job of Secretary of the Treasury. He withdrew his name because he’d take the same position as Simon and he said he couldn’t take the personal abuse.
WE LACK PEOPLE OF INTEGRITY
Because we lack people of integrity like Simon, we get people like former Obama Treasurer Secretary Timothy Geithner who told John Stewart on “The Daily Show (comedy channel) that the big banks had to be bailed out. Forgetting that it was the government that mandated the banks make loans to risky clients, Geithner said, “It was the only option, the only responsible, just, moral thing to do.” His reasoning was Obama, Geithner & Co., had to protect people from mass unemployment which, he said, is what happens in a financial panic” unless the government steps in and makes sure they try to keep the lights on.”
Obama’s $800 billion stimulus bill to bail out the banks was only supported by 3 Republicans: Arlen Specter (now a Democrat) and two Maine senators, Susan Collins and Olympia Snow. These votes gave the Senate Democrats and the White House the filibuster-proof cushion it needed in the final 60-38 vote. (3)
EMPLOYMENT ACT OF 1946 AND FREEDOM FROM WANT
Simon says to understand the present economic crisis in our country, then, is not just a matter of tracking the problem down to specific “government policies,” (i.e. environmental over regulation as one example) accurate as such an analysis maybe. It requires that we confront the invisible philosophy of government underlying these policies. And of all the rationalizations for authoritarian rule which now surround our form of government, the most essential is this: the belief that the state, under an FDR-like leader, has both the moral obligation and the competence to “run” the economy and guarantee its citizens economic security which is mathematically impossible. It cannot be done but from FDR on, American Presidents have indeed “run” the economy. And since 1947 their performances have been faithfully recorded in the President’s Yearly Economic Report to Congress, in accordance with the Employment Act of 1946. Since that law requires that the STATE GUARANTEE the American people “freedom from want,” the President must rise once each year before Congress and solemnly proclaim that either (1) he is about to create prosperity and security for all or (2) he had already created prosperity and security for all. That means essentially America’s Presidents have been legally mandated to engage in intellectual fraud. Citizens who want to confront the history of this fraud need merely go to the library, ask for the President’s yearly reports to Congress, and read them, from 1947 forward.
Here are a few highlights: Democrat Harry Truman at first fulfilled the requirements… Republican Eisenhower was also a great success for a few years with “full employment, rising income and a stable dollar – 1955 being the year’s greatest economic achievement. Democrat JFK came roaring into office vowing to “get the country moving again.” His formula: (1) Cut taxes, thus supplying consumers with more money to purchase goods (2) fill the pockets of the poor by going into debt, thus stimulating the market further with borrowed money. And for good measure, JFK intervened in an Asian war.
THEN CAME GREAT SOCIETY DEMOCRAT LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON
Lyndon B. Johnson’s reports to Congress began to reflect the full fraudulent potential of the myth that President can “run” the economy. His “Great Society” has brought America to insolvency today. On March 4, 2007 SIXTY MINUTES also reported on America’s insolvency.
Participants in Social Security were told their money would go into an independent trust fund rather than into a general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program…Under President Johnson the money was moved to the general fund, replaced with worthless government IOU’s and spent.
Then we have mission statement of the Department of Homeland Security which is to protect the American public against terrorists and instruments of terror while steadfastly enforcing America’s laws and fostering our nation’s economic security through lawful international trade and travel and claims to serve the American public with vigilance, integrity and professionalism, however, the mission statement doesn’t reflect reality at all. Terror and an ongoing state of fear are key functions of propaganda designed to unhinge us from our normative moorings – our God, our Christian religion, our culture, our families, etc. and prompt us to seek relief from our fear in the power of government and the larger the better.
Dave Stoddard, retired U.S. Border Patrol supervisory agent and former chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol officers said, “Over the past decade, Border Patrol agents, the retired agents corps, and the U.S. citizens have accused these agencies of the U.S. government not only of compromising safety, but ultimately of obstructing justice by refusing to allow agents to enforce the laws.
BRAIN WASHINGTON & DOUBLE SPEAK
Simon said our political “thinkers” today and the media are capable of staring directly at a rising tide of Orwellian tyranny - collectivism and statism, and labeling it as its opposite. Many words in our Politically Correct vocabulary have been turned upside down – Social Justice and gay comes to my mind. Simon correctly identifies the end product of four decades of doublespeak . The original authors of this doublespeak knew exactly what they were doing.
In 1968, veteran New Dealer Rexford Tugwell, an FDR brain truster, said in the plainest possible English, that there was only one way to force FDR’s economic collectivism into our political system and that was to violate the Constitution. And because it required a violation of the Constitution, the New Dealers found it necessary to lie about their goals and to pretend they were conforming to the Constitution. Simon said that is the genesis of the doublespeak that still addles Americans’ brains and allows them to describe a continuous invasion of individual rights and liberty as the enhancement of freedom.
Congress has ignored balanced-budget requirements. In 1979, a law (PL 95-435) was passed requiring the budget be balanced by 1981 and it was completely disregarded. Now there are those calling for a Balanced Budget Amendment.
Has the American Republic been following the same course of destruction as Rome? But our real ground of complaint is that we have been pushed down the demagogic road to disaster by conspiratorial hands far sooner and far faster than would have been the results of natural political evolution.
