“Houdini” Obama Does a Swan Dive Off the Cliff!

Oh yes!  With the lying, main-stream media protecting the president, the uninformed voter continues to think “W” Bush is responsible for our ailing economy and job situation.  I guess they will find some way to blame  “W” for the so called “Fiscal Cliff.

  Hey, fool, Bush has been gone for four years.  Even in his last two years in office,he could do nothing because the democrats controlled both the Senate and the House of Representatives. 

It is time for the fools and uninformed to get some education about how our government works and what “The Declaration of Independence” and “The Constitution” really mean.  Don’t they teach Civics in school any longer?

If you are honest, and want to look at history you will find that Bush’s responsibility was very minimal in the “housing crisis!” His share is tiny, and not what you think.  However, that is the subject for another blog because the uninformed voter would not be able to comprehend the “Fiscal Cliff” and “housing crisis” in the same blog!  Briefly, the seeds for the “housing crisis” were planted under Jimmy Carter, nurtured and allowed to flourish under Bill Clinton, and finally came home to roost while Bush was president!

Regarding the fiscal cliff: the democrats will not present a budget, which is their Constitutional duty!  There have been over 40 bills with 400 votes sent from the republican controlled House to the Senate.  Yes, 400 votes means that a lot of democrats in the House had to vote for these bills.  They get to the Senate and Hairy Reed sits on them.  Would any of these bill help the economy?  Most likely! However, if the Senate ignores them, we just ran into the “FISCAL CLIFF.”

Don’t worry thought! Obama will fix it, just as he fixed the unemployment problems, the housing crisis and the excessive spending by Washington, DC!

In any event, beware of the “Racist Gun Grabbers!”  That is the title of an earlier blog!  For review:

England grabbed its citizens guns in 1997. Crime skyrocketed as the law-abiding were disarmed. The English citizens have a message for Americans.

 

Then, hear the anguished cries of a dad who lost his daughter in the Columbine massacre:

GUN GRABBING RACISTS!

England grabbed its citizens guns in 1997. Crime skyrocketed as the law-abiding were disarmed. The English citizens have a message for Americans.

 

Next, let’s look at the Gun Grabbing side of this story on this side of the Atlantic Ocean:

Dear fellow Patriot,

Gun-grabbers around the globe believe they have it made.

You see, only hours after re-election, Barack Obama immediately made a move for gun control…

On November 7th, his administration gleefully voted at the UN for a renewed effort to pass the “Small Arms Treaty.”

I don’t know about you, but watching anti-American globalists plot against our Constitution makes me sick.

What’s worse, the UN set March 18th-28th to meet to pass the final version of the treaty that will be sent to the Senate for ratification.

You and I will only have a few short months to prepare for this battle

If we’re to succeed, we must fight back now.

That’s why I’m helping lead the fight to defeat the UN “Small Arms Treaty” in the United States Senate.

And it’s why I need your help today.

Will you join me by taking a public stand against the UN “Small Arms Treaty” and sign the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey right away?

Ultimately, UN bureaucrats will stop at nothing to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept many of their schemes under wraps.

But looking at previous attempts by the UN to pass global gun control, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works.

You can bet the UN is working to FORCE the U.S. to implement every single one of these anti-gun policies:

*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.

Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

To the petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the UN, the United States of America isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand designs for the globe.

These anti-gun globalists know that as long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave.

And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.

That’s why I was so excited to see the National Association for Gun Rights leading the fight to stop the UN “Small Arms Treaty!”

Will you join them by going on record AGAINST global gun control and sign the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey today?

The truth is there’s no time to waste.

You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.

The fact is the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical agenda.

They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the UN Small Arms Treaty into law since the mid-1990s.

But now time may not be on our side.

In fact, we’re likely to only have a few weeks to defeat them when they make their move in March.

And worse… the UN Small Arms Treaty is no longer the only UN scheme threatening our gun rights.

More and more of the UN’s radical agenda is slipping through covertly, under the cover of domestic legislation.

Not long ago, Obama told Sarah Brady from the anti-gun Brady Campaign, “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control].  We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

In fact, Hillary Clinton’s State Department recently bragged that Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious are implementations of the UN’s anti-gun agenda!

And I’d place a wager that Obama’s M1 Rifle Re-importation Ban was also the UN’s agenda dutifully executed by his administration.

Anti-gun UN policy that NEVER received a single vote in the United States Congress!

The UN will meet soon to pass a final version of the “Small Arms Treaty” to be sent for ratification by the Senate.

But even worse than a renewed mandate, the General Assembly could vote by simple majority to implement the “Small Arms Treaty.”

This would bypass any further meetings and would allow them to insist that member states ratify the treaty immediately.

So if you and I are going to defeat them, we have to turn the heat up on Washington now before it’s too late!

1. Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

2. Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes!” to these questions, please sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

But I hope you’ll do more than just sign your survey today.

With your help, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue to turn up the heat on targeted Senators who are working to implement the UN “Small Arms Treaty.”

Direct mail.  Phones.  E-mail.  Blogs.  Guest editorials.  Press conferences.  Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits.  The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

But that’s not easy, and we may not have much time.

In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat the UN’s schemes, pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!

So please put yourself on record AGAINST the UN Gun Ban by signing NAGR’s Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

P.S. Only hours after re-election Barack Obama immediately made a move for gun control…

On November 7th, his administration gleefully voted at the UN for a renewed effort to pass the “Small Arms Treaty.”

What’s worse, the UN set March 18th-28th to meet to pass the final version of the treaty that will be sent to the Senate for ratification.

If we’re going to defeat the UN “Small Arms Treaty,” gun owners have to turn the heat up now before it’s too late!

Next, we need to hear from a Dad who lost his daughter at Columbine!

Finally, note, I’m not a racist but with a decent, black president, we would think the young black kids would be proud and follow Obama’s example. Maybe, it is because there is a black Attorney General in Washington,DC that does not prosecute blacks for crimes.  In any event, this situation is getting out of hand! If the DC police don’t do something soon, I fear a vigilante reaction:

(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.)

EDITOR’S NOTE: The links in the following report may contain offensive language.

No one knows what the two white women were doing on that Metro in that part of Washington, D.C.

They “did not want any trouble,” they said on the video. To the black mob that confronted them, threatened them, beat them and robbed them, it was no trouble at all.

So they grabbed their iPhones, but not before the girls fought back to retrieve them. Unsuccessfully.

All the while one of the members of the crew was rolling video.

Members of this mob call themselves the 44th Street Crew in Southeast Washington. For those not familiar with the different sections of Washington, that is not the lobbyist/media/functionary dinner-party part of town.

Reporters at the Fox affiliate in Washington seemed surprised at the mob violence. But to people who ride the Metro, it was just another day.

Metro police have seen so much of it they are ready with instructions for riders who encounter it: Resistance is futile:

“There’s nothing worth fighting over and getting assaulted for,” said Deputy Chief Ron Pavlik of the two women defending themselves. “There are lot better ways to fight back.”

See the Big List of black mob violence.

Some people devote entire newsletters to the lawless Metro, where black mob violence is often seen, but seldom reported. According to UnsuckDCMetro, here’s a “Harrowing Account of Yet More Metro Violence” that never made the Washington Post:

I have never been more disgusted or shocked by what I witnessed Saturday night at the Anacostia Metro. I went to pick up a family member at the Metro, and just as she was telling me about the fights (Yes, plural!) that happened on the Green Line train [between L’Enfant and Anacostia], we witnessed a group of 6 to 8 young black teenagers kick, stomp, punch and push a lone teenage girl.

I could not believe my eyes! I also could not believe there was not an officer in sight.

When the family member arrived, she had her own story as well:

When she got on the train toward Anacostia, a group of teenagers proceeded to verbally and physically assault a group of young women. One of the boys threw a bottle and another threw the contents of a bottle in one of the woman’s face. The assaults got so out of hand that some people landed on a woman and her baby.

The attacking group had the doors to the train blocked so people couldn’t get off the train. My cousin told me she was so scared that she hid behind some seats and pulled out the box cutter she used for work.

Every story like this prompts readers to tell their own stories, in this case, dozens of them. This is typical:

I was leaving a friend’s place around 11 p.m. on a Saturday a few weeks ago and groups of teenagers were harassing everyone at the top of the escalator on the north-bound side of Eisenhower station. I could see it getting bad fairly quickly and was lucky to catch a train after only about 2 mins of being on the platform.

Over at DCist.com, they are also not in any danger of running out of material from the Metro violence beat. Whether it is a “huge fight” of 100 black people, or violence on a more modest scale, they got the goods.

“Stunning is the sheer number of participants in this fight,” said DCist. The site does not report the race of the participants.

TBD.com also reports on the Metro. The big story last year featured Allen Heywood. A black mob attacked Heywood as he was reading a book waiting for a train. As they beat and taunted him, Heywood begged for mercy:

Haywood repeatedly asked the girl why she was attacking him, pleading with her to end it. “Stop it! Stop it! G—— it! You stop this s— right now! I did nothing to you!”

That got a good laugh from other members of the mob, who “egged her on.” They left him dazed and bleeding and so upset that no one helped him that he stood outside the station holding a sign:

“I WAS ATTACKED AT L’ENFANT METRO SUNDAY AT 7:15 PM. NO ONE HELPED. PLEASE BE CAREFUL.”

One spectator who took the above video offered the video to Heywood to use as evidence against his attackers. But only if he paid for it.

This next episode comes from TheGrio.com: “Our lives … Our World …Our stories,” the black web site from MSNBC.

Robert Joy lost a few front teeth and took a few stitches when he tried to stop a black mob from beating someone at a Metro station.

The headline pretty much tells the story: Teen mob kicks and punches man at metro station.

Only they actually got a few people that day. And others on other days.

See the Big List of black mob violence.

 COLUMBINE STUDENT’S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER !!  Guess our national leaders didn’t expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well.

It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every
politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so- called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are
powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness.. The

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You’ve stripped away our heritage,
You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question “Why?”
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!

Warning: Only 9 days remain until new provisions of ObamaCare take effect.

With these massive changes coming under ObamaCare, one thing is certain, your healthcare costs will go higher, even as you see fewer doctors, get fewer choices, and have access to fewer medical services.

Some people say ObamaSCare is a government takeover of our healthcare system…

But more accurately it’s a government overhaul of 17% of our economy, with thousands of new provisions, regulations, taxes, fees, and penalties.

Who took food and Gas out of the COLA?

Recently, during a discussion, I heard something that didn’t sound correct.  The person stated that Reagan deleted food and gas from the Social Security Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA).  This required research, because this move was much more recent than Reagan.  In fact, the only change made to COLA during the Reagan administration was to change the cost of housing from mortgages to rents.  The reason was one that aided the Social Security recipient.  If you recall, the last years of Jimmy Carter and the first two years of Reagan, interest was in the 16% range.  While Reagan was gaining control of this “runaway inflationary spiral” bringing the interest rates down, it would have wiped out any COLA adjustments.  Since rents were more stable during this period, the cost of a mortgage was removed and rental costs were used, as they continue to be.

The big changes took place during the Bill Clinton administration.  The  administration and congress  funded  The Boskin Commission, formally called the “Advisory Commission to Study the Consumer Price Index”, which was appointed  to study possible bias in the computation of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which is used to measure inflation in the United States. Its final report, titled “Toward A More Accurate Measure Of The Cost Of Living” and issued on December 4, 1996, concluded that the CPI overstated inflation by about 1.1 percentage points per year in 1996 and about 1.3 percentage points prior to 1996.

Note, as you read the report below, that except for the Reagan change noted above, no extensive evaluation of inflation measurement and changes took place since the Stigler Commission in 1961. So, to properly place blame on the removal of food and gas from the COLA, it appears that the Senate and the Clinton administration are to blame.  It is what the democrats love to have “shared blame,” because it was the first time in over 40 years that the republicans had a majority in the Senate. The natural effect from this removal was to help the Clinton administration take credit for balancing the budget.  If blame is shared, then credit should be shared, and the Republicans deserve credit for helping to balance the budget!

The Boskin Commission, formally called the “Advisory Commission to Study the Consumer Price Index”, was appointed by the United States Senate in 1995 to study possible bias in the computation of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which is used to measure inflation in the United States. Its final report, titled “Toward A More Accurate Measure Of The Cost Of Living” and issued on December 4, 1996, concluded that the CPI overstated inflation by about 1.1 percentage points per year in 1996 and about 1.3 percentage points prior to 1996.

The report was important because inflation, as calculated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, is used to index the annual payment increases in Social Security and other retirement and compensation programs. This implied that the federal budget had increased by more than it should have, and that projections of future budget deficits were too large. The original report calculated that the overstatement of inflation would add $148 billion to the deficit and $691 billion to the national debt by 2006.

The report highlighted four sources of possible bias:

  • Substitution bias occurs because a fixed market basket fails to reflect the fact that consumers substitute relatively less for more expensive goods when relative prices change.
  • Outlet substitution bias occurs when shifts to lower price outlets are not properly handled.
  • Quality change bias occurs when improvements in the quality of products, such as greater energy efficiency or less need for repair, are measured inaccurately or not at all.
  • New product bias occurs when new products are not introduced in the market basket, or included only with a long lag.

The members of the Boskin Commission were:

The Boskin Commission was the first extensive evaluation of inflation measurement since the Stigler Commission in 1961. Griliches was also on that commission.
