Jan Brewer

Please, President Obama, reward me for my faithful service to you

In vetoing Arizona’s so-called ‘birther’ bill, which was passed by a majority of the Arizona House and Senate, she said:

I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for President of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth to submit their ‘early baptismal or circumcision certificates’…this is a bridge too far,

However, the bill only presented such documents as options for proving constitutional eligibility for the office of President, otherwise no woman could be on the presidential ballot in Arizona, which she never argued the bill did.

What really was a bridge too far for her was betraying the President who appointed her to a council of governors in 2010, which, in my view, is a subversive organization to weaken the constitutional diffusion of powers in the republic that is the United States.

As I mentioned in a previous article, Canada requires candidates for political office to swear an oath to their eligibility, but no proof of eligibility is required for a far higher office in the United States, and to me, that is ironic, given the specific natural born citizenship requirement for the office of President, which was obviously important to the 39 signatories to the Constitution.

She also said the bill could lead to “arbitrary or politically motivated decisions” because of the power of government officials to make judgments as to constitutional eligibility, yet she apparently hasn’t read, or has ignored, the very Constitution she swore an oath to uphold.

Article I, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution states:

Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members

So it’s nothing new for government officials to be given the power to decide on qualifications of political office holders, when the Constitution itself gives inherently political members of the U.S. House and Senate the sole power of judging the qualifications of its own members, even after they’ve been directly elected by the people.

Guantanamo Jumpsuit Detainees

It is widely believed that Congress’ prohibition against transferring Guantanimo detainees has indefinitely tied President Obama’s hands in keeping his 2008 election promise to close down Guantanimo and try its detainees in federal courts on U.S. soil.

However, in the first segment of the April 15th episode of Culture Shocks, a representative from the ACLU stated how the prohibition only applies to spending from the Defense Department’s budget, and only until the end of the current fiscal year — September 30, 2011.

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

I listened to Lyndon LaRouche’s first interview on Alex Jones’ show this past Thursday, and have the following observations:

He kept playing up the British as the bad guys in the world, which is laughable, considering it’s a globalist threat.

He referred to his alleged predictions of increases in earthquakes, presumably to convince people he’s either an astute prognosticator or some sort of prophet.

He said Americans need to get rid of Obama, since nothing good will come from his presidency, yet failed to mention that the same group of globalists who put Obama into the White House also control the Republicans.

He said Obama could be removed from office from the 4th section of the 25th amendment, but a reading of it clearly shows it requires the written consent of the Vice-President, who is Joe Biden, and obviously wouldn’t sign such a thing, so he’s leading people on.

He rightly, in my opinion, called for the re-institution of Glass-Steagall, yet mixed it up with talk about the earthquakes, which he says are being caused by a galactic cycle, which if true, is obviously beyond the influence of such a measure.

Now I know what Stephen Zarlenga, founder of The American Monetary Institute, was talking about in one of his interviews when he said that LaRouche supporters jump off the deep end with some of their proposed solutions. In this case, I think LaRouche did multiple Olympic gold medal winning jumps off the deep end throughout most of his interview.

On February 15, 2009, President Obama’s special advisor, David Axelrod, stated on Meet the Press with David Gregory: “this is the worst economic downturn we’ve had since World War II.

So why is anyone surprised that on November 6, 2009, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the U.S. unemployment rate had reached 10.2%?

Since World War II, the unemployment rate had previously already hit double-digits. Specifically, as late as 1983. The unemployment rate is a key metric of the economy, so why would anyone expect it to not go into double-digits during this recession?

When asked about whether the recently passed stimulus package would prevent the unemployment rate from reaching double-digits, Axelrod responded:

Well, that’s our hope. That’s our hope. There’s no doubt that without it that’s what–that’s where we were looking, double-digit unemployment. And that’s what we’re trying to forestall. We want to turn this thing around, and we think that this will, will happen.

Notice that he only talked about hope, and no promises. If a politician doesn’t even bother to make a promise about something happening that they want to happen, you can be pretty certain it won’t happen.

On Friday, October 30, 2009, Independent Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, was on The Thom Hartmann Program, on his weekly “Brunch with Bernie” segment, and stated exactly what the American people are up against in achieving financial reform. Starting at 5:31, he states:

We need financial reform. We need to put a cap on credit card interest rates. We need to deal with this “too big to fail,” and we need to break up some of these large financial institutions, we need an audit of the Fed. We need to do all of that, and more. But most importantly, long term, this is a huge fight, because you’re taking on the most powerful people in America. They make the oil industries and the drug companies look like lightweights. But essential, that’s what this struggle is about. Do we get capital out to the productive economy, while these guys continue to live in their own world, making huge sums of money.

Despite President Obama campaigning on a platform of “change,” where is the change so far? He received more in campaign donations from the banking sector than McCain did during the 2008 presidential campaign. Even with a theoretical filibuster-proof majority of 60 Democratic caucus members in the Senate, they still haven’t got through any of the changes that Senator Bernie Sanders is advocating.

On Thursday, November 5, 2009, I sent the following email to Bob Kincaid, host of “Head On with Bob Kincaid” on the Head On Radio Network (H.O.R.N.), and I thank him for addressing it, by reading it on the air that evening, starting at 16:00.

I became a listener in mid-2006, and listened regularly until early 2009. He did such a great job excoriating the Bush administration for their deliberate and repeated assaults on the Constitution, and informed me of things I wouldn’t have otherwise heard about, such as now Attorney-General Eric Holder’s representation of Chiquita International, on accusations of supporting a terrorist group, which they admitted to and paid a $25 million fine in 2007.

I was concerned that, in my view, the U.S. was headed down the same path that President Bush had taken it down, despite the window dressing looking very different. It’s not about Democrat or Republican. They are two wings of the same bird of prey. I hope that more people will see the evidence for this, as events continue to unfold under President Obama, who campaigned under the slogan of “change.”

Bob,

On yesterday’s show you blamed Republicans for killing any meaningful health care reform, but with the Democrats having a comfortable majority in the House, even excluding the so-called Blue Dogs, and a theoretical filibuster-proof Democratic caucus majority in the Senate, it’s clear who’s to blame for this failure — “Democrats.”

I agree with the meaning and tone of all the chastisements you’ve ever made about Harry Reid and Joe Lieberman. Lieberman never should have been allowed to continue caucusing with the Democrats once he endorsed McCain for president, and therefore the Democrats could never have been said to have a filibuster-proof majority in actuality until they had one without relying on him. But what about the other nine Democrats? One need look no further to cast blame than so-called Democrats.

After all, despite a bi-partisan committee majority supporting Dennis Kucinich’s single-payer option for states amendment, it was taken out by the (Democratic) House ‘leadership’ last Thursday, and that rightly had Dennis fuming.

On October 15, 2009, We Are Change Boston asked former Federal Reserve Chairman and current Chair of President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, Paul Volcker, about the Bilderberg Group.

This short video clip is highly significant for several reasons, including:

1) A former Fed Chairman, Volcker, acknowledges that the Bilderberg Group exists.
2) He acknowledges that he attended their meeting this year (2009), and two or three times previously.
3) He acknowledges the authority and consequences of the Logan Act, which prohibits unauthorized U.S. citizens from negotiating with foreign governments, punishable under federal law with imprisonment up to three years.
4) He indirectly admits that the Federal Reserve is a non-governmental private institution, by implying the Act didn’t apply to his attendance.
5) If he wasn’t given express authorization by President Obama to attend this year’s meeting, he’d be liable for punishment under the Logan Act. Testimony in Congress, under oath, should be sought to determine that.

For those few who are still living in denial about the existence of the Bilderberg Group, or if you’re curious, watch this clip of Ben Bernanke pulling into the 2008 Bilderberg Group meeting, and South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford reflecting upon his attendance at that same meeting.
