By The People

There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

Hillary-Gate Part I - Just The Facts!

UPDATED July 28, 2016

New video from Dick Morris

While doing research on Hillary Rodham Clinton for an article of my own, I came across this one. Credit where it is due, I present it to the Esteemed Readers of Fix America without edits or comments. You decide for yourself.

"A very good and old friend of mine, Dan Bekins, owner of Executives Service Agency in Phoenix, Arizona, contacted me with some information regarding Hillary Clinton. Dan suggested that I do some research to verify it for myself, and so I did. What I found was almost unbelievable. Hillary doesn't really have a great past before she entered politics. One could say it was quite radical… In fact, we could say it was extremely radical.
Now, I pride myself on writing my own material and only use other sources for verification of facts, but I am going to share some information from Dick, written by Mr. Morris about Hillary back in May of 2007.

Mr. Morris writes:

Bill Clinton’s syrupy five minute ad for Hillary… he introduces the commercial by saying that (he) wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary’s background. His version of her biography is about as reliable as if it appeared in Pravda!

So, I wanted to make a few corrections.

Bill says: Hillary never wanted to run for public office, but she did want to work at public service.

The facts are: When Clinton was considering not running for another term as Governor of Arkansas in 1990, Hillary said she would run if he didn't  She and Bill even had me take two surveys to assess her chances of winning. The conclusion was that she couldn't win because people would just see her as a seat warmer for when Bill came back licking his wounds after losing for president. So she didn't run. Bill did and won. But there is no question she had her eye on public office, as opposed to service, long ago.

Bill says: In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.

The facts are: Hillary’s main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.

Bill says: Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children’s rights project for poor kids.

The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

Bill says: Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.

The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She only joined the prestigious Rose Law Firm after Bill became Attorney General and made partner only after he was elected governor.

Bill says: President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman.

The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter’s choice to be chairman.

Bill says: She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Walmart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

Bill says: Hillary didn't succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.

The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

Bill says: Hillary was the face of America all over the world.

The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

Bill says: Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children’s and women’s issues.

The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 9-11 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton:  She has done everything possible to weaken our country (that’s you and me!) when it comes to dealing with the enemies of the United States.

She wanted to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.

She wanted to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA.

She wanted to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.

She wanted to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells and supporters in the USA.

She wanted to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives."


And let's not forget she must still answer for Benghazi!

The Con-artist's Net Worth

How does the fraud in the White House, on a salary of $250,000 annually, who gave up 5% (to be a good guy!) amass $12.2 Million in only 4 years as reported by the New York Times (April 28, 2013)? That does not include the $11.8 million Michele Obama has amassed. 

So is that what paying your fair share is all about? This is the epitome of 'income inequality' and it seems only fair to point out this fact with all the rhetoric in the media about raising the minimum wage because there is unequal wages from the top down.

Most at the top worked their way up. On the other hand, there are those who stepped on many others to get to the top, and then made friends wealthy for their support.

Maybe some feel that because of all the supposedly wonderful thing he does, Soetoro/Obama should get a bigger piece of the pie? Maybe he can write an executive order and give himself a raise. After all, he has a pen and a phone.

Former Hillary Associate Claims to Have Been Her Personal Hit Man

In light of all the talk about Hillary Clinton for President, her "At this point what difference does it make?" reaction to a Congressional inquiry into Benghazi, it seemed appropriate to bring this story to the Esteemed Readers of Fix America.

"Like many Americans I have been glued to the Pete Santilli show today in an attempt to keep up to date with any updates on the truckers. That show is streaming live at as I write this.
There are bombshells being dropped on that show that go far beyond a trucker’s strike.

The story the listeners are getting is that Larry Klayman was prepared to go on Neil Cavuto’s show tonight and show pictures of National Guard troops that have been assembled to squash the uprising, should it get out of hand. But it is also being reported that Fox News pulled the interview. Why?
>Was the Fox interview pulled because Klayman wanted to talk about some other issues as well, including a gentleman named Larry Nichols, who was a longtime associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton? The accusation is that Fox News does not want to share this story and only wants reports of the alleged National Guard troops in D.C .

Guerilla Media Network reported on September 24, 2013:

Clinton Insider Admits To Murder For Hire Claiming He Did It For The Money

Larry Nichols, former 10 year accomplice to the Clintons, can now add hit-man to his list of dirty deeds.  Nichols dropped a bombshell on The Pete Santilli Show when he very calmly admitted that he had murdered people, on command, for Bill and Hillary Clinton.  Mr. Nichols has been a voice crying out in the wilderness since he brought to light the sexual brutality of Bill Clinton during his reign as Governor in Arkansas. That information would eventually play a key role to Clinton’s impeachment in the 90′s.  Larry says he makes no apologies.
They sent me overseas to kill people for them and told me it was for the good of the Country. So when they asked me to do it for them in the States it felt no different. The real truth is, I did it for the money and I didn’t give a shit about the women I beat and the men I murdered.  The Clintons are bad people and I did bad things for them.  I had to live with that all of these years and now I just don’t care anymore who knows it.
Larry maintains the Clintons were into so many illegal activities at the time, they had to have a team of mercenaries made up of friends and state-troopers to cover it all up and keep them protected from the public finding out.  According to Larry Nichols, both Bill and Hillary were wild and out of control and both were relentless in their pursuit for money and power.  From running drugs, to the rape and beating of women and young girls, both of the Clintons are guilty of the unspeakable crimes.
When Pete asked Larry about Gennifer Flowers making headlines last week claiming Bill had told her Hillary had eaten more pussy than he had Larry said that’s old news, and indeed it is … Larry had made that same statement on the Pete Santilli show early last spring.  Larry is adamant that Hillary Clinton is a “Dyke” and always has been.
One thing I know for sure She did have enough sex with men to have a kid, but it wasn’t Bill Clinton’s Kid she had … Chelsea is actually the daughter of Web Hubble.

Nichols and many other insiders claim Clinton began having sex with Hubble to gain employment at The Rose Law Firm which she believed would eventually advance Bill Clinton’s chances of becoming Governor of Arkansas.
The above quotes came from a radio interview. I have obtained a video that is posted on the same page. It is 4 hours long and I have not had time to isolate the comments so I have no idea what segment of the show contains them. I am posting the video for those who might have time to listen to it.

WARNING: Some content in the video may be offensive to some in this audience. Pick up the video around the 1Hr 09Min mark."

From Anarchy to Slavery

To most people today anarchy is synonymous with chaos, which is the complete disregard for law and order. Most of what we call anarchy today is not what our founders had in mind.

To them anarchy would have been used in contrast to monarchy, or in other words self-rule versus being ruled over. The founders idea of anarchy was self-governance (the ability to govern your own life).

It was also evident to them that the People needed to maintain control of the election process and that is why they left it up to the the People. But when the political parties formed the population lost a small amount of control of the voting process. By infiltrating the State governments with political party activists, who introduced party agenda legislation that took control of the election process from the People and gave control to the States, which in effect gave the parties control of the State governments and the election process, and therefore the Federal Government.

When you had people who were levied with unjust tariffs and/or taxes, and British soldiers who subjected the people to unjust searches and seizures of personal property (our Fourth Amendment rights), they had the absolute right to exercise civil disobedience (our First Amendment rights) against those who imposed such actions upon them. We have those rights now.

For more on civil disobedience see:

Throughout the history of the U.S., civil disobedience has played a significant role in many of the social reforms that we all take for granted today. Some of the most well known of these are:

1) The Boston Tea Party -- citizens of the colony of Massachusetts trespassed on a British ship and threw its cargo (tea from England) overboard, rather than be forced to pay taxes without representation to Britain. This was one of the many acts of civil disobedience leading to the War for Independence, establishing the United States of America as a sovereign state.

2) Anti-war movements have been a part of U.S. history since Thoreau went to jail for refusing to participate in the U.S. war against Mexico in 1849. More recent examples were the nationwide protests against the war in Viet Nam, U.S. involvement in Nicaragua and Central America, and the Gulf War. Actions have included refusal to pay for war, refusal to enlist in the military, occupation of draft centers, sit-ins, blockades, peace camps, and refusal to allow military recruiters on high school and college campuses.

3) The Women's Suffrage Movement lasted from 1848 until 1920, when thousands of courageous women marched in the streets, endured hunger strikes, and submitted to arrest and jail in order to gain the right to vote.

4) Abolition of slavery -- including Harriet Tubman's underground railway, giving sanctuary, and other actions which helped to end slavery.

5) The introduction of labor laws and unions. Sit-down strikes organized by the IWW, and CIO free speech confrontations led to the eradication of child labor and improved working conditions, established the 40-hour work week and improved job security and benefits.

6) The Civil Rights Movement, led by Martin Luther King, Jr. and others, included sit-ins and illegal marches which weakened segregation in the south.

7) The Anti-Nuclear Movement, stimulated by people like Karen Silkwood and the Three Mile Island nuclear power accident, organized citizens throughout the country into direct action affinity groups, with consensus decision making and Gandhian nonviolence as its core. Massive acts of civil disobedience took place at nuclear power facilities across the country, followed by worldwide protests against first-strike nuclear weapons, occupying military bases, maintaining peace camps, interfering with manufacture and transport of nuclear bombs and devices, marching, sitting in, blockading and otherwise disrupting business as usual at nuclear sites.

8) Environmental and forest demonstrations, with acts of civil disobedience such as sit-ins, blockades, tree sits and forest occupations, have emerged in the last decade, prompted by the continuing mass clear cuts and destruction of the forest ecosystem and widespread environmental consequences.

In all of these struggles, citizens had reached the conclusion that the legal means for addressing their concerns had not worked. They had tried petitioning, lobbying, writing letters, going to court, voting for candidates that represented their interests, legal protest, and still their views were ignored.

In each of these movements, the protesters were compelled by deep moral convictions. Their distress was strong enough to motivate them to go against the grain, to sacrifice personal comfort, to face unknown danger, to give up their freedom and risk going to jail. Their love of truth and justice drove them to action. Many, but not all, of those committing civil disobedience in the last two decades have been trained in Gandhian nonviolence philosophy and tactics.

Non-Cooperation is used by some protesters during civil disobedience actions. Non-cooperation may include going limp, refusal to give information at booking, fasting and refusal to participate in court proceedings.”

Please note that 'illegal street demonstrations or protests' are those that interfere with normal civil activities. Gathering peacefully, with respect to the civil liberties of the public, is not an illegal activity according to the Constitution and the natural rights of humanity.

The current federal government tyranny is far more pervasive than the Crown was in the 18th Century. Today with real-time data acquisition and analysis, and with direct access to your financial accounts and transactions, the loss of privacy in our personal affairs by government, far exceeds what our founders were willing to endure before they said, “Enough!”

U.S. citizens who relinquish their freedoms little by little become, step by step, slaves to the very government created to protect their freedoms.  At what point will U. S. Citizens say, “Enough!”?

What Has Happened to Our System of Governance?

. (Credit: EPA)
The government of the United States of America has declared war on its own People and it is winning! Your life no longer belongs to you, it belongs to the government.

The government will decide the curriculum best suited for your child and what school they will attend. When they graduate, the government will place them in a government job that best suits the talents developed, which of course are always to serve the best interests of the government.

If it is determined that you do not raise your children in a manner that government approves, Child Protective Services will take them from you and assure they get a proper government approved upbringing. You can get all of the expensive attorneys you can afford or deal with a court appointed one. In the end it really won't matter because the courts that no longer serve justice will rule in favor of CPS and the government, because after all, who knows better on what is right for children than the government?

You will not be permitted to have any arms because you may do harm to others or yourself with them. Those found with arms or commit any crime with arms will be put to death; or at the government's discretion, given a sentence in a prison camp as a guard. 

The government will determine if you medical needs warrant the expense versus your potential worth to the government. In a nation of share the wealth, nobody can be permitted to burden society unless they are privileged by their service to the government and loyalty to their leader.

A Congress is no longer necessary since all they do is argue and never get anything done.  Some even bring up issues such as constitutionality, when it is clear, that anything government deems, “necessary and proper” or “promotes the general welfare” (from the government's point of view) is constitutional period. The President will determine what the best laws are and will just write an executive order to make it law. Those laws already written will be ignored or changed to best suit the needs of the government.

Even the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land cannot be questioned once they decide a law is constitutional. Why if that were permitted, every law the People don't like can be called into question. Government cannot permit such blatant disregard for the tyranny it forces upon us.

Liberty is rarely lost all at once. The branches are pruned off the Tree of Liberty, until it is either restored or destroyed. Government has been allowed to cut branches off the Tree of liberty by using fear as a tool to enact laws that deprive liberty for the promise of security. And every time another 'crisis' arises, another few liberties are taken away. 

Government can take all of your rights if you allow them to. The only thing they cannot take is free will.  That is the root from which the Tree of Liberty grows.  Free will in inherent in all of humanity and is our birthright. 

Have we reached the point of total enslavement by the government, now an entity unto itself?  Knowing what the government has become, it makes me wonder if Americans have forgotten who they are! (Or is it simply a matter of education?)

An Open Letter to the Tea Party

I received this letter via email a few days ago. I had to read through it several times because of the impact it has on me and I trust it will have a significant impact on the Esteemed Readers of this blog.

I am including the list of reference links attached to this letter so you may also do the research for yourself.


To The Distinguished Members of the Tea Party,

I come to you with a heavy heart about something that is plaguing the poor families of this once great country. I say once great because we are now having the government dictate how we should live and raise our children. What I am going to reveal to you hurts the very core of our existence in this nation.

To me this brings to mind Adolf Hitler and his taking of children to train them to be better soldiers for his cause, which we all know failed and we all Thank God for that, but none the less it devastated the children and families. What is happening in this country to poor families across this great land has the same theme, but being covered up by saying it is in the best interest of the children.

Thousands of families that fall below the poverty level are easy prey for DCS and the government is funding this out of the Social Security fund that are supposed to go to the senior citizens and disabled people that mostly depend on that money to barely exist. When President Clinton was in office he signed a bill taking money out of Social Security to help CPS take care of children that were in their care. I am sure at the time President Clinton thought this was a good idea and I believe in the most part it was until CPS figured out a way to use this to fund themselves instead of trying to reunify the families take their parental rights from them. If they know that they cannot take parents rights away, they make the families jump through hoops by doing classes on parenting, take a mental health evaluations and the list goes on all the while keeping children in their custody  to earn money from the federal government.

We all know when you are below the poverty level, you cannot afford to pay for an attorney to represent you and are given a public defender that is employed by the court and is extremely handicapped in representing his appointed client. If the attorney puts in a request, say, for an expert witness, he is usually turned down by the judge  saying we don't have the funds for it. All the while CPS has millions of dollars at their disposal to justify their actions and in 99% of cases the judge agrees with CPS because they believe that the parents are liars and CPS is telling the truth or they may even be getting a kick back from CPS.

If you will look from the beginning  when President Clinton signed the bill, you will find a rise in children being taken from their families and put up for adoption. Most of these families are poor and that is their only crime. Some of CPS's claims might be only that they could not afford toys for their children. 

Mothers have committed suicide after losing their children and husband and wives divorce, all because CPS wants to make money. CPS has lost sight of what they are supposed to do and in part because they make more money by taking the children from the home and removing parental rights to place the children up for adoption.

I love my country and the people in it, I pray for our young men and women being placed in harms way, wanting them to come home to their families safely. I will not fly a flag until this atrocity ends and children are returned to their families.  It seems to me the only time our elected officials cares about anyone is when they need votes to be reelected, making promises to all of us and then as soon as they are elected or reelected, they forget about their promises to us until the next election.

I know you want change and are trying to get the government under control and give it back to the people. What I would like to know- will all of you in the Tea Party stand with me to change this and get the children of good families returned home?

We need to make the public aware of this epidemic in our country, we need men and women that are running for office to stand up for us and say this has to stop and stop now. Make the ones in office be accountable for these families that they have helped destroy. Don't get me wrong there is a need for CPS but they have to get back on track of preserving families if they are able to, not just take them for the benefit of monetary gain. There are thousands of children in our nation that are being abused everyday and yes they should be removed and placed where they will be loved and taught about our Savior which by the way was what this country was founded on. CPS needs to be revamped where they will be productive again in the preservation of families and the protection of children that are truly in need of help.              

I know this Is true not just by the research that I as well as others have done but because it  is  happening to my family and is now in appeals court. My daughter has not seen her children, in February will be for 2 years.  The court sided with DCS because she had a public defender and they won based on the testimony of a mentally challenged person. In a forensic interview my granddaughter admitted that what she said wasn't true, but there was a baby involved and the night we went to try to pick them up, my wife and I were told that we would never see them again because they had someone already to adopt the baby. This was in less than 2 hours after they intervened in our lives.

I am sending  list of websites you can look at as well some stories from families. I do hope you will look into this matter and get on board. Just think this could happen to you when you least expect it. All it takes is for someone that is upset with you call and make an anonymous phone call to the CPS hot line even though it is a lie, your children could be gone in a heartbeat. 

Sincerely Yours,
Warren Howe, Pastor"

Why John Roberts (Likely) Is Protecting Obamacare…

From the post by:  by 

"On Monday, without comment (because he could not make a coherent one),  Chief Justice John Roberts denied a request by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons and the Alliance for Natural Health USA for a stay in the implementation of Obamacare. The groups had made their application last Friday, arguing that since the bill had been declared a tax by the Supreme Court (with Justice Roberts himself the deciding vote), and it had originated in the Senate (the Constitution says revenue bills may not originate), the law was therefore unconstitutional; and implementation of Obamacare  should at least be stayed pending further examination.

While there are other minor issues attached to the application that were also not addressed, the truth of the matter is clear: John Roberts will never do anything to derail Obamacare, no matter what arguments against it are brought before him.

There is very good reason to believe that regardless of the media’s skillful smothering of the story, John Roberts is being blackmailed to make certain Obamacare never falls in a Supreme Court case. The basis of this charge surrounds the fact that a series of strange (and probably felonious) acts are attached to the adoption of his two children.

In 2005, when they thought they were doing the Democrats’ bidding, the New York Times dug into apparently easily accessible records and found that the children Roberts and his wife adopted in “South America” started life as Irish citizens. This is a red flag. The laws of Ireland regarding adoptions are very clear: adoptions by non-citizens are prohibited, as are private adoptions.

Apparently, when the Democrats realized they could control a Supreme Court Justice’s vote through blackmail over his having committed a number of international crimes, the Times pulled back and dropped its investigation. The Democrat paper of record pulled back because it didn’t want to “ break the seal of an adoption case” – as if violating laws ever means anything to Democrats in their quest for power. Keep in mind Barack Obama’s violation of his opponents’ “sealed” divorce records propelled him to a US Senate seat.
What does the Roberts problem mean for the average American who looks to Washington for relief from Democrat oppression? It means we won’t be getting any relief from the Roberts Court, period."

Professor Laura Hollis of Notre Dame On Obamacare

"The unveiling of the dictatorial debacle that is Obama care absolutely flabbergasts me. It is stunning on so many levels, but the most shocking aspect of it for me is watching millions of free Americans stand idly by while this man, his minions in Congress, and his cheerleaders in the press systematically dismantle our Constitution, steal our money, and crush our freedoms.
The President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (with no small help from Justice John Roberts) take away our health care, and we allow it. They take away our insurance, and we allow it. They take away our doctors, and we allow it. They charge us thousands of dollars more a year, and we allow it. They make legal products illegal, and we allow it. They cripple our businesses, and we allow it. They announce by fiat that we must ignore our most deeply held beliefs – and we allow it.
Where is your spine, America?
Yes, I know people are complaining. I read the news on the internet. I read blogs. I have a Twitter feed. So what? People in the Soviet Union complained. People in Cuba complain. People in China complain (quietly). Complaining isn’t the same thing as doing anything about it. In fact, much of the complaining that we hear sounds like resignation: Wow. This sucks. Oh well, this is the way things are. Too bad.
Perhaps you need reminding of a few important facts. Here goes:  
1. The President is not a king. Barack Obama does not behave like a President, an elected official, someone who realizes that he works for us. He behaves like a king, a dictator – someone who believes that his own pronouncements have the force of law, and who thinks he can dispense with the law’s enforcement when he deigns to do so. And those of us who object? How dare we? Racists!
And while he moves steadily “forward” with his plans to “fundamentally transform” the greatest country in human history, he distracts people with cheap, meaningless trivialities, like “free birth control pills”! (In fact, let’s face it: this administration’s odd obsession with sex in general – Birth control! Abortion! Sterilization! Gay guys who play basketball! — is just plain weird. Since when did the leader of the free world care so much about how people have sex, who they have it with, and what meds they use when they have it? Does he have nothing more important to concern himself with?)  
2. It isn’t just a failed software program; it is a failed philosophy. People are marveling that was such a spectacular failure. Well, if one is only interested in it as a product launch, I’ve explained some of the reasons for that here. But the larger point is that it isn’t a software failure, or even a product failure; it is a philosophy failure.
I have said this before: Obama is not a centrist; he is a central planner. And this – all of it: the disastrous computer program, the hundreds of millions of dollars wasted, the lies, the manipulation of public opinion, the theft of the public’s money and property, and freedom (read insurance, and premiums, and doctors) — IS what central planning looks like.
The central premise of central planning is that a handful of wunderkinds with your best interests at heart (yeah, right) know better than you what’s good for you. The failure of such a premise and the misery it causes have been clear from the dawn of humanity. Kings and congressmen, dictators and Dear Leaders, potentates, princes and presidents can all fall prey to the same imperial impulses: “we know what is good the ‘the people.’ And they are always wrong.
There is a reason that the only times communism has really been tried have been after wars, revolutions, or coups d’├ętat. You have to have complete chaos for people to be willing to accept the garbage that centralized planning produces. Take the Soviet Union, for example. After two wars, famine, and the collapse of the Romanov dynasty, why wouldn’t people wait in line for hours to buy size 10 shoes? Or settle for the gray matter that passed for meat in the grocery stores? But communism’s watered-down cousin, socialism, isn’t much better. Ask the Venezuelans who cannot get toilet paper. Toilet paper. ¡Viva la Revoluci├│n!
Contrary to what so many who believe in a “living Constitution” say, the Founding Fathers absolutely understood this. That is why the Constitution was set up to limit government power. (Memo to the President: the drafters of the Constitution deliberately didn’t say “what government had to do on your behalf.”) They understood that that was the path to folly, fear, and famine.)  
3. Obama is deceitful. Just as the collapse of the computer program should not surprise anyone, neither should we be shocked that the President lied about his healthcare plan. Have any of you been paying attention over the past few years? Obama has made no secret of his motivations or his methods. The philosophies which inspire him espouse deceit and other vicious tactics. (Don’t take my word for it: read Saul Alinsky.) Obama infamously told reporter Richard Wolffe, “You know, I actually believe my own bullshit.” He has refused to be forthcoming about his past (where are his academic records?). His own pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, told author Ed Klein, that Obama said to him, “You know what your problem is? You have to tell the truth.”
Did Obama lie when he said dozens of times, “If you like you plan, you can keep it. Period!”?   Of course he did. That’s what he does.  
4. The media is responsible. And had the media been doing their jobs, we would have known a lot of this much, much earlier.  The press is charged with the sacred responsibility of protecting the people from the excesses of government. Our press has been complicit, incompetent, or corrupt. Had they vetted this man in 2008, as they would have a Republican candidate, we would have known far more about him than we do, even now. Had they pressed for more details about Obamacare, Congress’ feet would have been held to the fire. Had they done their jobs about Eric Holder, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, NSA spying – or any of the other myriad betrayals of the public trust that this administration has committed, Obama would likely have lost his 2012 reelection campaign. (A fact that even The Washington Post has tacitly acknowledged. Well done, fellas! Happy now?)
Instead, they turned a blind eye, even when they knew he was lying, abusing power, disregarding the limits of the Constitution. It was only when he began to spy on them, and when the lies were so blatant that the lowest of low-information voters could figure it out that they realized they had to report on it. (Even in the face of blatant, deliberate and repeated lies, The New York Times has the audacity to tell us that the President “misspoke.”) They have betrayed us, abandoned us, and deceived us.  
5. Ted Cruz was right. So was Sarah Palin. The computer program is a disaster. The insurance exchanges are a disaster. What’s left? The healthcare system itself. And this, of necessity, will be a disaster, too.  Millions of people have lost their individual insurance plans. In 2015, millions more will lose their employer-provided coverage (a fact which the Obama administration also knew, and admitted elsewhere).  The exorbitant additional costs that Obamacare has foisted on unsuspecting Americans are all part of a plan of wealth confiscation and redistribution. That is bad enough. But it will not end there. 
When the numbers of people into the system and the corresponding demand for care vastly exceed the cost projections (and they will, make no mistake), then the rationing will start. Not only choice at that point, but quality and care itself will go down the tubes. And then will come the decisions made by the Independent Payment Advisory Board about what care will be covered (read “paid for”) and what will not.
That’s just a death panel, put politely. In fact, progressives are already greasing the wheels for acceptance of that miserable reality as well. They’re spreading the lie that it will be about the ability of the dying to refuse unwanted or unhelpful care. Don’t fall for that one, either. It will be about the deaths that inevitably result from decisions made by people other than the patients, their families, and their physicians. (Perhaps it’s helpful to think of their assurances this way: “If you like your end-of-life care, you can keep your end-of-life-care.”)  
6. We are not SUBJECTS. (or, Nice Try, the Tea Party Isn’t Going Away). We have tolerated these incursions into our lives and livelihoods too long already. There is no end to the insatiable demand “progressives” have to remake us in their image. Today it is our insurance, our businesses, our doctors, our health care. Tomorrow some new crusade will be announced that enables them to take over other aspects of our formerly free lives.
I will say it again: WE ARE NOT SUBJECTS. Not only is the Tea Party right on the fiscal issues, but it appears that they are more relevant than ever. We fought a war once to prove we did not want to be the subjects of a king, and the Boston Tea Party was just a taste of the larger conflict to come. If some people missed that lesson in history class, we can give them a refresher."

Happy New Year?

I have been concerned about an issue to present to my Esteemed Fix America Readers for this first post for 2014. I'm still not certain that I have a clear picture of what lies ahead. I know of all the possibilities but I'm not sure that the American People have what it takes to stop what is happening.

Regardless of how others feel, I do feel that America is exceptional, or at least it was exceptional until the Constitution was set aside for issues of education, social services, welfare,  national security, and what the government now deems is its duty to protect the public from themselves.

Let's start with the myth that we have 'leaders' in government. Since they no longer have proper education in the government standardized public school systems, I offer to my Esteemed Readers a short lesson in Civics.

Those elected to office by the People, are public servants, not leaders. They have a duty and responsibility to meet with their constituents in regard to their concerns and convey the will of the People to their respective legislative bodies.

Next we have the myth about capitalism and free-markets. Contrary to popular belief, free-markets are not synonymous with capitalism. Capitalism is a term that comes from the investment business. Free-markets apply to businesses that produce a product to sell or provide a service at a fee. They invest themselves in their artistry, craftsmanship, and energy and ask a price that will be beneficial (a living wage) to themselves and of value to their customers.

Finally, I would like to mention currency to placate a myth that currency is the same no matter what type is used. Prior to the Federal Reserve Act, paper money was a representation of worth in gold or silver. Coins were copper, nickel, silver, and gold. As per the constitutional requirement, Congress set the standard for currency based on the worth of gold and the other metals. In other words, a U.S. Dollar had a fixed value based on the gold in the U.S. Vaults (Fort Knox) that gave that dollar its worth. 

The Federal Reserve Dollar or more precisely Federal Reserve Note is not money, it is debt. It has no inherent worth whatsoever, in fact because of its over-circulation and the national debt, it is worth less than the value of a real copper penny. Today's coins are sandwiched alloys with very little value.

End of lesson and beginning of commentary!

It is by the consent of the governed that a government is created and sustained. When the government no longer serves the will of the People it not only is the right of the People, but it is the duty of the People to force that government to perform correctly.

The People may write a resolution which they then convey to their elected representatives for sponsorship in their respective legislative bodies. A resolution may be a new law, a modification of a current law, or a nullification of an unconstitutional act or law.

Our Constitution provides us with the means to compel the government to perform as intended without the necessity for an armed rebellion. Of course we can elect representatives that will follow the wishes of their constituents.

There is also another a constitutional provision long ignored by modern jurisprudence. What recourse do the People possess when the prosecutors refuse to call a Grand Jury to indict criminal activity by an elected representative? Citizen Grand Jury is the answer! I've written about this before in the post titled Fixing Government: Grand Jury Presentments

Little by little, the People of the colonies began losing their rights to their wealth and property. Taxation was unjustly levied, and their wealth and property was at the disposable of the King's whim. The People began to protest.  First it was by civil disobedience and finally when armed troops came into their towns and into their homes, taking whatever they wanted in the name of the King, the People had taken enough! 

When the founders of this great nation realized that all they had worked for, their wealth and properties, was deemed the possessions of the Crown, that they had less rights than their fellow subjects in Great Britain, they chose to be free men and women and so they revolted. 

It was not easy and it cost many of them their lives. But for them it was far better to die fighting for their freedom than to die in servitude to a tyrannical government. The choices made by my fellow Americans over the course of this year, will determine whether their children will know freedom or only hear of it whispered, by the few who remain who had experienced it once for themselves.
