Charlie Crist has taken to Twitter to peddle his lies. Here’s the latest:
Charlie Crist just signed a budget raising taxes on Floridians.
Charlie Crist supported and said he would vote for the Obama stimulus plan that expands the size of government, creating new agencies, new oversight, and new regulations.
As for Freedom, a man who wants to roll back efforts to end affirmative action, undo educational reforms that give Florida children greater access to the education of their choosing, and who supports the expansive spending policies of Barack Obama neither knows nor deserves freedom.
Stop the liar Charlie Crist.
The Wall Street Journal calls him the “Republican Barney Frank.”
Support Marco Rubio and support freedom.

Matthew Cunningham, over at Red County, has a post worth reading about Barack Obama’s disastrous foreign policy.
We need to pay attention to Obama’s foreign policy. It is shaping up to be fatal to American interests.
He has given only tepid support to democratic protestors in Iran — and only after much needling and pushing by Republicans.
He has burned bridges with the French, something no one thought possible.
He has insulted the British and refuses to embrace the idea of it being our strongest alliance.
He refuses to take on the North Koreans despite their intentions to launch a missile toward Hawaii.
And now Barack Obama is standing with Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, and a host of communist regimes and sympathizers in Central and South America on the issue of Honduras.
To recap: The Honduran President decided, like Hugo Chavez, to have an “election” in order to keep himself in office longer than the law allowed.
The Honduran Constitution requires that Presidents serve one term. Given Latin American history, it is a good thing. The Constitution also requires that referenda be approved by the Honduran Congress.
The President of Honduras decided to have a referendum on giving him more time in office, which the Congress blocked. He went ahead anyway. The Honduran Supreme Court told him to stop. He ignored them.
So the Congress and the Supreme Court ordered the military to remove the President of Honduras. It was no coup. It was an attempt by two co-equal branches of government from preventing the third co-equal branch from becoming a dictator.
Nonetheless, Barack Obama sees it differently. He is supporting the democratically ousted President of Honduras. He joins Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.
Meanwhile, people are still dying on the streets of Iran.

Darren Samuelsohn reports cap and trade backers are 15 Senate votes short of the 60 needed for passage.
According to Samuelsohn’s article, the Senate count stands at 45 yes or probably yes, 32 no, and 23 fence sitters:
Have things change so much since the 1990’s? Back then, the House approved President Clinton’s energy tax, also known as the BTU tax. That vote was as close as Friday’s on the Democrats’ cap and trade energy tax:
Clinton’s energy tax didn’t pass the senate and the Democrats lost the senate in the following election.
The whole point of both Clinton’s BTU energy tax and the current cap and trade energy tax is to price fossil fuels out of the market. Imposing higher energy costs on our economy, costs which don’t apply to economic competitors such as China and India, does not make sense for a struggling economy facing Obama’s out of control spending, higher taxes and ever growing multi-trillion dollar deficits.
In 1997 the Senate unanimously passed, 95–0, the Byrd-Hagel Resolution, which stated the sense of the Senate was that the United States should not be a signatory to any protocol that did not include binding targets and timetables for developing nations as well as industrialized nations or “would result in serious harm to the economy of the United States.” Byrd-Hagel prevented Clinton from even trying to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, which also would have put the U.S. economy at an economic disadvantage to China and India.
Have things really changed so since the 1990s that the U.S. Senate would vote to give our economic competitors an advantage?
Have things really changed so much that the Senate would vote cause electricity rates to skyrocket and to bankrupt anyone who builds a coal powered plant?

Note From a Cop
Written By; Scott Wagner a Police Academy Commander and Professor at Columbus State Community College in Columbus Ohio, and Commander of the 727 Counter Terror Training Unit. A 29 year law enforcement veteran, and current Deputy Sheriff, he is the Precision Marksman for the Union County Sheriff's Office SRT Team.
The fear on the street is palpable. Ever since the election of Barack Obama as President of these United States in November 2008, coupled with the election of a democrat party majority in both the U.S. House and Senate, concern for the United States and personal safety has ignited like a fire in dry grass.
Sales of guns black guns, rifles, shotguns and handguns (particularly 9mm) everywhere, have gone through the roof. AR15s have literally flown off of dealer shelves, and only now in the spring of 2009, have I seen the display samples of ARs begin to reappear on the wall of my favorite shooting emporium after the initial post election rush.
Manufacturers of ARs are still working to catch up and some of the major suppliers are as much as 150,000 guns behind. Not only that, ammo is in the shortest supply I have ever seen in the 43 years of my shooting life. Have you recently tried to get 5.56mm, 9mm or even 380 ammo?
Supplies of 5.56mm and 9mm ammo are in short supply due to the black gun buying craze; .380ACP because of the rise in people getting concealed carry permits and the resurgence of interest in convenient 380 handguns like the fine Ruger LCP. In fact, in doing a review of the Ruger LCP, my gun store only had a small supply of ONE .380 round on hand, the Winchesters 95-grain SXT, which they had just gotten in. Unfortunately, I had to do a 30-round review of that pistol. There was none other to be found.
What is odd about this new fear is that it is not coming from the average citizen gun owner out there, but it is coming from what to me is an almost shocking source: street cops.
Street cops and SWAT cops that I know from various agencies rural, suburban and metro in my area are scared. Cops that before November 2008 never gave much thought (that I knew of anyway) to politics or more
importantly to gun rights. For the most part, these are the guys that didn't generally have any interest in shooting or gun ownership beyond keeping track of where their duty gun is, and a few of them didn't even do that so well.
The guys I am talking about now are some of the same guys who used to not even carry off duty on a regular basis- but not anymore. They don't scare easily, defenders of the Constitution of this State and the United States (as our oath of office reads), have been buying ARs, survival gear, and all the ammo they can lay their hands on. All of them (or I should say "us") have been discussing and have been acquiring guns to provide a layered perimeter defense.
What are we suddenly so afraid of? Well in our discussions it seems to boil down to four areas.
First, fear of federal government intrusion into our lives. Every time I look at or listen to the news, there is something new and intrusive coming out of the Obama administration and this Congress. New tax schemes, government-run Canadian-style healthcare, a volunteer citizen defense force (whatever that is, what happened to the National Guard?) equipped with funding similar to our military, forced voluntary "service" after retirement, a lack of a southern border with hordes of illegal and criminal aliens pouring over our border, the swine flu scare as well as government forced closing of thousands of privately held Chrysler and GM dealerships, which will be the final nail in the coffin for these companies and the list goes on and on.
But these items in the news are just the tip of the iceberg. We can't see the full impact of these actions yet, but we don't know what was added into the thousand of pages of stimulus package bills in the dead of night yet. I predict however that when the plans contained in the stimulus packages go into effect, a lot of us are going to be surprised if not shocked by what has suddenly and sweepingly changed.
What also scares us is the second, well-founded fear that there is an assault weapons ban looming, one that would make the Clinton Ban appear like a look of disdain in comparison. I remember well the 1990s and the Clinton years: the rise of militia groups, the "black helicopter" rumors and paranoia, all of which was motivated by the Brady Law and the Assault Weapon's ban. What if a new ban comes requiring registration or confiscation and turn-in of banned weapons as what happened in Australia?
...I foresee much civil disobedience coming down the road. Americans are citizens, and not subjects like the British, Canadians or Australians. They just don't always obey the law blindly and not one officer or citizen that I spoke to said anything like "I hope I get to keep this gun for awhile before they are banned; They are fun to shoot, so I would hate to give it up." It isn't going to happen, so the cop on the street and the soldier on the base needs to think now what he will do if the orders come down. I think you all get what I am saying here.
Which leads me to the third fear, that there is a revolution coming, yes, a revolution on the scale of the original American Revolution. You can hear this topic discussed on many of the talk radio shows by even the big name hosts. The possibility of an armed revolution against the U.S. government being discussed, albeit very gingerly and fleetingly and as something to be avoided, which it is. I never heard this mentioned in the 90s. One of my quietest, low profile officer friends brought it up the other day.
He said that at some point in the near future, he felt there is going to be an armed revolt if things keep going the way they are. Something has got to give. I was shocked. Yes, I had heard this from some of my more radical
cop friends in the past, but to hear it from a guy like this was unprecedented. Now, these guys are not saying this will happen to foment revolution, preach sedition or to even participate. They just want to be ready if it happens, to at least defend their families, because number four on the fear list is general societal chaos.
Cops fear for their parents, wives, children or grandchildren more now than ever before. Most cops are encouraging their spouses and loved ones to get concealed carry permits. Not only that, but some of these same cops are buying gun mounts for their personal cars so they can carry an AR in the family ride at the ready all the time. They are also strapping on heavier forms of off-duty hardware. I have other friends that are issued ARs or subguns for tactical team use, who always have their gear with them and are planning on just commandeering these weapons for personal use in defending hearth and home.
This is pretty heady and maybe even dangerous stuff. Know fully that I am not advocating anything here. I am reflecting to you what I see and hear going on around me, and maybe saying things that haven't been said in the
open, until now. It is something to think about.

Very sobering article about how your RINOS and Dems are pressured into voting for legislation they know is bad; cap and trade most of all.
Dangerous. Very dangerous. This will be another flashpoint. The site of another war. The Hindus - so brave a people.
This is where freedom and liberty meets the oppressor.

This is absolutely abominable. If you haven't heard, the UK's pound is on the verge of collapse.
The dollar is being devalued every time the printing press at the FED spits one out.
Don't you understand that we are on the brink of such disaster that the world will never be the same? That my country, that bastion of security, liberty and freedom is falling to its knees under a tyrant put there by the same people who are pulling your countries down?
"They" - the relative handful of global elitists that belong to the CFR and the Bilderbergs want a total global slavery system. There will be no class structure - we will only be slaves to the New World Order.
There is no time for words anymore. Change has come with chains - here in the USA only one move on the chessboard is between us and a communist government similar to what Russia had in the 50s. That is socialized medicine. The Cap and Trade bill endangers our well being and our lives and liveliehoods here in America. It is so serious, that even our rain puddles have now been taken over by the federal government under the half white prince, Obama.
We are under a red alert. We are just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Be aware of what your government is doing to you and decide what assets you have to counteract the powers that be to make you slaves. It will come in the crash of your economic structure, your currency. Your food and fuel will be scarce or unavailable. When they take our food and ration it, take our health care and socialize it to the lowest common denominator, they will have achieved their goal of gloval governance.

Gun Owners of America applauds immediate past NRA President Sandy
Froman, who stepped up to the plate last week with a call to arms for
all NRA members to vigorously oppose the nomination of Judge Sotomayor
to the Supreme Court. (See the article below).
GOA has been calling on our members to oppose this nomination since it
is clear that Sotomayor is anti-Second Amendment and wants to legislate
from the bench.
The official position from current NRA leadership is to take a "wait and
see" approach to the Sotomayor nomination which may well allow her to
wiggle through and be confirmed.
GOA calls on all pro-gunners across America to urge NRA leadership to
join in this critical fight to protect the Constitution -- and
especially our gun rights.
-- GOA Vice-Chairman Tim Macy
NRA Members Must Oppose Sotomayor
by Sandy Froman
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
Judge Sonia Sotomayor, President Barack Obama's first nominee to the
U.S. Supreme Court, has a narrow view of the Second Amendment that
contradicts the Court's landmark decision in District of Columbia v.
Heller. A heated debate has started in the U.S. Senate over her
opposition to the right to keep and bear arms. This issue, which has
decided the fate of presidential elections, could also decide her
nomination. Gun owners, and especially the members of the National Rifle
Association, must aggressively oppose Judge Sotomayor's confirmation to
the Supreme Court.
On June 24, senators began speaking on the floor of the Senate
expressing grave concerns over Judge Sotomayor's Second Amendment
record. Senator Jeff Sessions R-AL, the Ranking Member of the Senate
Judiciary Committee, pointed out that although her record on the issue
is "fairly scant," she has twice stated that the Second Amendment is not
a fundamental right. Senator Sessions also noted that in Second
Amendment and other constitutional cases, Sotomayor's analysis of
important constitutional issues has been lacking suggesting "a troubling
tendency to avoid or casually dismiss difficult Constitutional issues of
exceptional importance." Sotomayor's view on the Second Amendment
clearly reflects an extreme anti-gun philosophy, and some Democrat
senators from pro-gun states are justifiably nervous.
Last year, the Supreme Court held in Heller that the Second Amendment
guarantees the right of individual Americans to keep and bear firearms.
But that ruling was a fiercely-contested, 5-4 split decision. Justice
Kennedy joined the four conservatives on the Court to make the majority,
with the four liberal justices writing passionate dissents about how the
Second Amendment does not apply to private citizens.
Bluntly speaking, the Second Amendment survived by a single vote. Had
one justice voted differently, the Second Amendment would have been
erased from the Bill of Rights forever. Today in the Supreme Court, the
right to bear arms hangs by a single vote.
The next question the Supreme Court will decide is whether the Second
Amendment is a "fundamental right" that applies to cities and states,
thus preventing them from restricting gun rights. Even the liberal
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held earlier this year in Nordyke v. King
that the Second Amendment is a fundamental right, yet Judge Sotomayor
When Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, it
belied his flowery rhetoric about respecting our constitutional gun
rights. Out of almost 200 federal appeals judges in this country, Judge
Sotomayor is one of only six to weigh in (after the Heller case) to hold
that the Second Amendment only limits federal actions. If your state or
city chooses to ban all guns or take away the ones that you already have
in your home for hunting and self-defense, Sonia Sotomayor says the
Constitution can't help you.
This position becomes all the more radical when it's revealed how she
reached this conclusion. Only six judges have denied gun rights against
the states. Of these, three did so in a recent Seventh Circuit case, NRA
v. Chicago, writing a detailed opinion that the Second Amendment doesn't
apply to the states because they thought an old 1800s Supreme Court case
tied their hands on the issue, and they commended the case up to the
Supreme Court after long and scholarly consideration. Judge Sotomayor
and two of her liberal colleagues, however, wrote only a single
paragraph on the whole issue when deciding their own New York case,
Maloney v. Cuomo. In one paragraph, she said the Second Amendment gives
people no rights at all when it comes to state or city laws. She gave no
explanation, and made no call for Supreme Court action.
Then we find that this has been a consistent belief for Sotomayor. In a
case before her in 2004, she and her colleagues concluded that there is
no fundamental right in the Second Amendment but provided no substantive
analysis to justify this conclusion. Throughout her career, Judge
Sotomayor's record is one of consistent opposition to the private
ownership of firearms.
America has almost 90 million gun owners who value their rights. And of
these, no one does more to protect the Second Amendment than the four
million members of the National Rifle Association.
I served as an officer of the NRA for nine years, including a two-year
term as president. I saw NRA members turn the tide on Election Day 2000
to defeat Al Gore. We fought again to help defeat John Kerry in 2004. We
can do the same with Sonia Sotomayor, if we call our U.S. Senators and
tell them to vote against this anti-gun judge. No fewer than fourteen
Democrat senators have solid records on the Second Amendment, and we
must urge them to oppose this nominee.
Next year, the Supreme Court is likely to take up NRA v. Chicago, which
will decide whether the Second Amendment applies to states and cities
like it does the federal government. This case is as important as
Heller, and will massively impact gun rights forever.
We already know where Judge Sotomayor stands. It's time to tell the
Senate, "Vote No! on Sonia Sotomayor."

But she supported cap and trade rape of Americans, didn't she?
And Sotomayor, Obama's pick for Supreme Court Justice was against them!
In my opinion, she's a racist!

Obamacare Nightmare: "If the American people find out that this bill is about giving health care to non-citizens, they will rise up against it."
It just gets uglier and uglier. And here I thought that illegals had healthcare .... the ER. Obama's policies are all about .........screwing America.
La Raza: "If the American people found out..."
"Suzanne", a female caller to Mark Levin's show on June 25th, revealed the ominous secret of the Democrat health care reform effort.
I want to tell you that last week I attended a conference on health care reform sponsored by La Raza. And I will tell you that what they had to say, Mark, is scarier than anything that's been said so far on the health care plan.
The kind of comments that were made and the notes that I took... they started the conference out by saying "America does not need health care reform, but Latino immigrants need health care reform."
And someone from Menendez' office [Ed.: Sen. Robert Menendez, D-NJ] promised that he would make sure that "the useless barriers of citizenship would not be in this bill" and that he would make sure that they would use keywords like "streamline"...
It was La Raza, the Childrens Defense Fund and Senator Menendez from New Jersey, a representative from his office...
...Yes [they said they would get free health care for illegal aliens], these are my notes, Mark. They actually got up and said "
...One of the quotes they said was, "We want to make sure we take care of barriers like verification, but we can streamline programs to the more affluent" and, quote, "Useless treatments for the elderly can be gone because we don't need to spend money for people who are going to die anyway..

There are more services just type into Google: faxing for free
Most of the free services are advertising supported, so it appears on the cover page. So the benefit might be, it will look like it's coming from some company.
I prefer the browser based faxing, as opposed to email. If you use an email address, most likely you'll eventually get unwanted emails.
Prepare your message to Senator. Save it as text file, copy and paste it into the appropriate box, and send your message.
If you use MS Word, Acrobat (to create a pdf), these files contain personal info embedded into the file header. You really don't want to give this info to some free service. This is why I suggest creating a text file using notepad (clean with no personal info).
The benefit of sending a fax is:
1. if the receiver receives faxes via email, the fax is an image. Unless the receiver has sophisticated OCR software, the fax has to be either printed or viewed on-screen. So anti-spam software is generally useless.
2. if the receiver uses a real fax machine, the the fax is printed.
I picked this tip up from the Alex Jones/Sam Labrier podcast.
Maybe a thread can be started with Senator's fax numbers.

WHAT TO DO! THEY MUST PASS THIS TO SUBDUE AND SUBJUGATE THE POPULATION TO A LIFE OF MISERY AND SLAVERY. THEY HAVE ONLY ONE MORE THING TO TAKE AND THAT IS THEIR PRIVATE HEALTH CARE, AND SOME HAVE DOUBTS. DOUBTS!
SO THEY (THE GUYS IN THE BLACK SUITS AND MIRRORED SUNGLASSES) WHACK THE SECOND MOST POPULAR PERFORMER IN HISTORY AS A DIVERSION.
That night, the House of Representatives heartily gives its ok and passes the bill. People are still mourning the fallen pop star hero. Teddybears, candles, tears, joy, music, gatherings. Who's watching TV.
The President - played by Barack Obama stairs out from a White House balcony, with Michele next to him (she's carrying 8 pound dumbbells for her arms, you know) and he spreads his arms to encompass the horizen. She's pumping her dumbbells. "This is MINE NOW, MICHELLE", he intones.
Fade to black.

Hegelian Theory in Action, Part I
Michael Jackson is dead. All other current crises will now be put on hold. Sorry Ahmadinejad, sorry Kim Jong Ill, but your audiences have all left the room. No one is paying any attention to you today, current events have pushed you off the stage. Ahmadinejad, you will just have to continue work on your nuclear weapons without comment from the West. And Kim Jong Ill, your threats and provocations have no weight with us today. Your newsworthiness has been usurped by a much more significant story, a much more significant crisis.
Michael Jackson is dead. From Fox News to the BBC, it has already been decided, this is the major issue of the day. Forget about nuclear proliferation. Forget about escalating threats and impending confrontations. Forget about the Global War on Terror. The Western World has spoken, they have made their priorities known. The Western World has decided what is truly important today, and what is not. And you, Ahmadinejad, and you Kim Jong Ill, just don't have what it takes to compete with this current crisis. So, just do whatever you want to do, we're going to be ignoring you for awhile. You see, you're just not as important as you thought you were. - rg
HERE'S A LIST OF THE RINOS WHO HELPED PUSH CAP AND TRADE - THEY MUST NEVER BE RE-ELECTED AT THE VERY LEAST.
Eight traitors to the principles of the Republican party handed the Democrat-communists victory which may lead to the greatest tax increases and most far-reaching centralized (dictatorship) control over every aspect of American life. (hst tip TC)
The vote was 219 - 212 - the 8 RINO votes would have stopped this marxist-transnationalist legislation in its tracks.. On a good note - 43 democrats rejected the insanity.
Red State has the those that must be targted and voted out. The Quisling Republicans
The vote was extremely close. 8 Republicans voted yes. 43 Democrats voted no.
Your persistent phone calls kept the margin very narrow and now make it extremely difficult to pass the Senate.
We must keep up the pressure in the Senate. We also now have a lot of momentum going into the healthcare fight. Democrats cannot expect to hold the same economy destroying coalition together.
Also, several Democrats are now dead men walking. We will clean their clocks next year.
UPDATED: Both James Inhofe and Harry Reid predict the legislation is dead in the Senate.

Atlas reader TC asks, do you remember the Democrats who lobbied Iraq? In the summer 2008 -the destroy-USA democrats lead by "Chuck" Schumer corralled then Secretary of State Condi Rice forcing her to pressure Iraq into canceling six contracts that it previously awarded Western oil companies - Exxon, Chevron, Shell, Total, BP, etc.
Thanks to these leftists - their ally and model of "progressive utopian dictatorship" - communist China - has reaped the rewards enabled by Democrat treason and purchased 550 million barrels of oil at $16/barrel:
"How much smarter is China than the US?
Well let’s see - The US has spent $1,000,000,000,000 fighting in Iraq and thousands of our soldiers have died and we have secured ZERO barrels of oil for ourselves. China was not part of the coalition of the willing but, for just $8.8Bn, they are getting 550 Million barrels of oil, almost the size of the US’s entire strategic petroleum reserve, through the purchase of Addax Petroleum, and 20% of those reserves are in Iraq . While Bush filled our reserve up "at any price" and became the single largest buyer of crude in the world, filling our SPR at a rate of 2-3Mb a week at times, China simply waited patiently on the sidelines and is now coming in and buying wholesale. That’s pretty smart!
And America is turning over energy to these assclowns? A 1,300 page bill that no one has even read is being rammed down our throats?
Despite repeated warnings to "Say No to Koh", Harold Koh was confirmed. This is a dark day. American sovereignty R.I.P. Say no to Koh? With a vote of 62-35, we didn't even say maybe. This is an indication that so few knew what was at stake, and once again the media abdicated its role of public servant, not Obama's slave.
The future of American jurisprudence hung in the very balance. Koh opposes national self-interest. He is dogged and determined to advance his views. He believes traditional sovereignty is obsolete. He has written critically of the very notion American exceptionalism.
Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh was confirmed as the State Department Legal Advisor in a roll call vote, 62-35.

It's crap and trade. Cap and Trade is a fancy word for tax increase. Worse, it is a tax on the middle class to subsidize the affluent. States that rely heavily on energy pay more. Miami, Ohio will subsidize Miami, Florida. Why not tie actual warming to carbon taxing based on evidence? Considering that it has been decreasing since 2002, the gubmint might wind up owing us money.
So much going on - breathless. BUT STOP AND LISTEN.

HOUSE IS RUSHING CLIMAE CHANGE BILL THROUGH

McKitrick’s premise is simple—and wait for this—evidence-based!
Why not tie carbon taxes to actual levels of warming? Both skeptics and alarmists should expect their wishes to be answered
Below are the salient points of McKitrick’s proposal. Again, the entire June 12, 2007 Op-Ed can be read here, and his full discussion of the proposal can be evaluated here.
The IPCC [Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change] predicts a warming rate in the tropical troposphere of about double that at the surface, implying about 0.2C to 1.2C per decade in the tropical troposphere under greenhouse-forcing scenarios. That implies the tax will climb by $4 to $24 per ton per decade, a much more aggressive schedule of emission fee increases than most current proposals. At the upper end of warming forecasts, the tax could reach $200 per ton of CO2 by 2100, forcing major carbon-emission reductions and a global shift to non-carbon energy sources.
Global-warming activists would like this. But so would skeptics, because they believe the models are exaggerating the warming forecasts. After all, the averaged UAH [University of Alabama-Huntsville] / RSS [Remote Sensing Systems] tropical troposphere series went up only about 0.08C over the past decade, and has been going down since 2002. Some solar scientists even expect pronounced cooling to begin in a decade. If they are right, the T3 tax will fall below zero within two decades, turning into a subsidy for carbon emissions.
At this point the global-warming alarmists would leap up to slam the proposal. But not so fast, Mr. Gore: The tax would only become a carbon subsidy if all the climate models are wrong, if greenhouse gases are not warming the atmosphere, and if the sun actually controls the climate. Alarmists sneeringly denounce such claims as “denialism,” so they can hardly reject the policy on the belief that they are true.
Under the T3 tax, the regulator gets to call everyone’s bluff at once, without gambling in advance on who is right. If the tax goes up, it ought to have. If it doesn’t go up, it shouldn’t have. Either way we get a sensible outcome.
Gore has scored 100 million dollars in "global warming" hoax.
Al Gore’s has invested $6 million in a that stands to make billions of dollars from cap-and-trade regulation — further fueling controversy that Gore lied about his profiteering from cap-and-trade to Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and the House Energy and Environment Subcommittee during testimony in April.
Hara Software sells software to help track greenhouse gas emissions. The market for such software is now about $2.5 billion dollars in size, and is expected to grow by a factor of ten to $25 billion if cap-and-trade legislation is enacted, according to Hara CEO Amit Chatterjee.
Kleiner Perkins, a venture capital firm in which Al Gore is a partner, invested in Hara just last year. Chatterjee told Reuters that,
UPDATE: Left Coast Rebel has the numbers here. Wow.
Cap and Tax ...get on the horn
Pelosi promised we could read the bill in its entirety and so did Obama, before it was passed. But at 3 a.m. in the morning the thousand page plus document which none of our scumbag representatives (HAH! What a misnomer!) read, or those who tried, 350 pages were added that WERE NOT READ!
THIS IS MASSIVE FRAUD AGAINST THE PEOPLE AND PELOSI HAS TO BE CALLED ON THIS AND REMOVE HERSELF FROM OFFICE.
THIS BILL WILL EAT OUT OUR SUBSTANCE AND DESTROY OUR WAY OF LIFE.
I BELIEVE THERE IS A LINK TO THE FULL TEXT OF THIS BILL ON THE LINK ABOVE, AND IF THERE ISN'T, I WILL FIND IT AND POST IT HERE!
WE ARE DUPED AGAIN - AND HOW STOOPID ARE WE TO TAKE THIS? WE ARE A NATION OF IDIOTS.
AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, CHECK THE SUNSPOT CYCLES.

But remember, he only wants the best for his grandmother, his wife and his children, as I'm sure every single elected official in this country wants...but not for us. He said so on TV. But we will pay for their fine healthcare plan, which we will not receive.
It was Granny's and my pleasure to bring to public attention via Wayne's HSUS newsletter online and through your magazine, the importance and the blessings of bringing an aging (and in Granny's case, disabled) animal into your home.
Once they end up in the pound (animal control by any name is a terrible place with a deadly future), the old ones fail to appeal to most people, just because they are old. Elsewhere in this blog is Granny Annie's story.
It has been so hot here that Granny Annie hasn't been taken out in her stroller in the evening.
The blackberries are ripe and the yellow flies are hell to live with.
But maybe tonight. We've missed the children on our route, and the blackberries must all be ripe. So perhaps we will venture forth with some plastic bags when the sun has gone down.
AND I, AS A SOVEREIGN CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES, THAT NO, THEY ARE NOT!
You are so adept at ferreting out the news no one else prints and I am honored to be able to present your fine blog here. There are some shocking things there today that your local tv station and your local paper will not print; nor will the global news.
For my readers, there are 15 entries at Atlas Shrugs today from an assault of Freedom of Speech in Maine, to the Troopathon happening now, and North Korea's promise of a nuclear firestorm. There is so much more - that Iran is dead, Obama's slash and burn policies -
Please, if you haven't seen this blog, do so today. It is more important than Michael Jackson's (the child molester) death.

Alert: Bill To Ban One Million
People From Gun Sales
Obama and the White House are looking the other way as Lautenberg seeks to ban guns from 1,000,000 US citizens on a secret FBI terrorist watch list. Obama has deliberately and repeatedly lied to America's 90 million gun owners across the country when he insisted that he would not try to take away anyone's firearms. Now Obama's silence endorses Lautenberg's latest attempt at banning guns.
Lautenberg plans to introduce legislation that would give the attorney general the discretion to block gun sales to people on terror watch lists. We must defeat this bill from giving extraordinary powers to limit gun sales to the Attorney General.

Lautenberg To Reveal Names on Secret List
The names of the people on the watch list are secret, and Lautenberg said he was frustrated by the F.B.I.'s refusal to disclose to investigators details and specific cases of gun purchases beyond the aggregate data.
Gun hater Lautenberg requested the gun grab study from the Government Accountability Office. He is using statistics, compiled in the report that is scheduled for public release next week to invade US citizen's privacy and put more restrictions on the Second Amendment.
Lautenberg said he wanted a better understanding of who is being allowed to buy guns.
How you ask? Trial by innuendo and misinformation that has put 1,000,000 Americans and maybe even you on a terrorist watch list without your knowledge by saying: people placed on this government's terrorist watch list can be stopped from getting on a plane or getting a visa, and will also be stopped from buying a gun.
Lautenberg wants gun purchases stopped for just being on the list. Current law states federal officials must find some other disqualification of a would-be gun buyer, like being a felon, an illegal alien or a drug addict.
Is your name on the list and can you get it removed?
The government's consolidated watch list, used to identify people suspected of links to terrorists, has grown to more than one million names since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It also has drawn widespread criticism over the prevalence of mistaken identities and unclear links to terrorism.
A CNN story raises questions about mistaken identities on the list - James Robinson is a retired Air National Guard brigadier general and a commercial pilot for a major airline who flies passenger planes around the country.
James Robinson is a retired brigadier general and a commercial pilot. His name is on the terrorist "watch list."
He has even been certified by the Transportation Security Administration to carry a weapon into the cockpit as part of the government's defense program should a terrorist try to commandeer a plane.
But there's one problem: James Robinson, the pilot, has difficulty even getting to his plane because his name is on the government's terrorist "watch list."
That means he can't use an airport kiosk to check in; he can't do it online; he can't do it curbside. Instead, like thousands of Americans whose names match a name or alias used by a suspected terrorist on the list, he must go to the ticket counter and have an agent verify that he is James Robinson, the pilot, and not James Robinson, the terrorist.
"Shocking's a good word; frustrating," Robinson -- the pilot -- said. "I'm carrying a weapon, flying a multimillion-dollar jet with passengers, but I'm still screened as, you know, on the terrorist watch list."

History Repeating Itself?
The 1938 German Weapons Act, the precursor of the current weapons law, superseded the 1928 law. As under the 1928 law, citizens were required to have a permit to carry a firearm and a separate permit to acquire a firearm. Furthermore, the law restricted ownership of firearms to "...persons whose trustworthiness is not in question and who can show a need for a (gun) permit."
Lautenberg Must be Stopped
Recently Sens. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), Jack Reed (D-RI) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have joined Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and victims and family members of the Virginia Tech tragedy, to introduce legislation to eliminate the private transfers of firearms and close the nation's "gun show loophole."
This Senate bill is in the Judiciary Committee, chaired by anti-gun liberal Democrat Leahy. Lautenberg's gun hate is well documented and he says you are irrational if you support private gun sales.
"There is no rational reason to oppose closing the loophole. The reason it's still not closed is simple: the continuing power of the special interest gun lobby in Washington" Sen. Lautenberg said ignoring the Constitution.Fax NOW - Get Your Name Off The List

Lautenberg and the Gun Grabbers in the Senate are now tying to use the GAO to justify putting Americans on a secret gun ban list.
Motives for his latest gun ban to are twofold:
- First, he is taking small steps to enact gun control legislation this is just one step.
- Second, eradicate the gun culture altogether.
Now the Anti-Gun Coalitions are trying to use a self supporting GAO study to destroy the right of all Americans to keep and bear arms to protect themselves under the law. They are attacking and hiding behind an Anti-Terrorist Agenda while getting political and financial support from:
George Soros a Hungarian-born billionaire bank rolling efforts with his check book and spending more that $100 million to destroy the Constitution.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA) admitted that "guns would be banned and confiscated" if she could have her way.
The United Nations actively pushes globalism seeking to disarm all Americans.
We must Stop the Anti-Gun Coalition and get ready for the biggest gun control fight of the year from coast to coast. We can not do that without your support.
