Contrary to most of Marx works, The Communist Manifesto contains a “programmatic” agenda, to be implemented by communist parties once they seize power. According to Marx, a communist state will adopt the following policies:
  1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes
  2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax
  3. Abolition of all right of inheritance
  4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels
  5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly
  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State
  7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of wastelands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan
  8. Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture
  9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equable distribution of the population over the country
  10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.

SOYLENT GREEN music – Fred Myrow (HQ + ending)

 

Trust but verify

 

I still stand by my wild ass guess (WAG) that the Republicans will win 77 seats in the House of Representatives for a total of 255 seats and 10 seats in the Senate for a total of 51 seats giving the Republican Party majority control of both the House and Senate.

There will also be 35 state Republican  governors.

The Democratic Party led by President Obama have lost the independents, older voters, white voters, the unemployed and increasingly the young.

Since the core progressive/liberal base of the Democratic Party is between 20% and 25% of the voters, even in the best of turnout election years, they simply cannot win in districts that have a high percentage of Republican and Independent voters.

The conservative and libertarian movement is more than energized–they want to throw the bums out of office.

The major issues were jobs, spending, taxes, deficits, debt, bailouts, illegal immigration and Obamacare.

On all these issues the Democratic Party is simply on the minority side of the issue and their economic policies of a stimulus package, green jobs, and Obamacare  have been an abject failure in creating jobs and reducing spending and deficits.

The tea party patriots have become a political force to be reckoned with by the political establishments of the Democratic and Republican parties.

The real test for the Republican Party will be in the next two to four years.

At a bare minimum the Republican Party must cut back spending  and balance the budget with no tax or debt increases.

If the Republican Party does not deliver on this, more and more tea party patriots will look to forming a new political party instead of taking over the Republican Party.

I am simply not optimistic that the current Republican Party establishment is up to the job.

The Republican establishment lacks both vision and courage to do what needs to be done.

What the Republican Party should be doing is closing down entire Federal Departments and passing the FairTax.

Very few Republicans and Republican talk radio and television show hosts mention either.

Instead it is business as usually with the same talking points that we need to cut spending by x% and tax rates by y%.

This approach has failed time and time again for the simple reason that it is quickly reversed by the progressives in both the Democratic and Republican parties when they win majorities in the House and Senate.

Only by passing the FairTax and eliminating ten Federal Departments will the cancer of out-o-control government intervention be permanently stopped.

The time for a new political party that replaces either the Republican or Democratic Party is fast approaching.

Tea parties or rallies are great but results count and that requires MOMMA–Money, Organization, Message, Momentum and Ambition.

MOMMA is what is required to win elections.

A new political party that favors limited  constitutional government is required–American Citizens Alliance Party–ACAP on spending, deficits, debt, regulations, and taxes.

The American people are also waiting for its twenty-first century George Washington and Thomas Paine to emerge from the tea party patriots.

The election of 2016 is the one to watch out for.

By then I fully expect that both the Democratic and Republican parties will be so widely perceived as failures in delivering results that the American people will finally support candidates that want limited constitutional government and belong to another political party.

Brit Hume: Republican Gains could be into the 70’s or 80’s

Republicans Appear Poised to Win Big on Tuesday

Lead in generic ballot large enough to give Republicans solid majority control of U.S. House

by Frank Newport, Jeffrey M. Jones, and Lydia Saad

“…The results are from Gallup’s Oct. 28-31 survey of 1,539 likely voters. It finds 52% to 55% of likely voters preferring the Republican candidate and 40% to 42% for the Democratic candidate on the national generic ballot — depending on turnout assumptions. Gallup’s analysis of several indicators of voter turnout from the weekend poll suggests turnout will be slightly higher than in recent years, at 45%. This would give the Republicans a 55% to 40% lead on the generic ballot, with 5% undecided. …”

Generic Vote Preferences in 2010 Congressional Elections, Among Likely and Registered Voters, October 28-31, 2010

“…The Oct. 28-31 poll finds that nationally, 75% of Republicans and independents who lean Republican are “absolutely certain” they will vote in the 2010 midterms, compared with 68% of Democrats. While these figures are not the only indicator of relative turnout strength — this is just one question in Gallup’s seven-item likely voter model — the record-high seven-point gap between the parties is strongly indicative of a relative surge in GOP turnout. …’

Obama, Black Liberation Theology and Karl Marx

By Kyle-Anne Shiver

 

“…Our Collective Salvation

When Barack Obama spoke to the graduates of Wesleyan College last week, taking the place of ailing Senator Edward Kennedy, he gave a commencement address not unlike those anywhere.  I, like others, read the transcript.
 
And here are the words that gave me a shudder:
It’s because you have an obligation to yourself. Because our individual salvation depends on collective salvation. Because thinking only about yourself, fulfilling your immediate wants and needs, betrays a poverty of ambition. (emphasis mine)
 
“Collective salvation” is an idea that comes from Marxism, Liberation Theology in particular, and is absolutely antithetical to traditional Christianity.  When it comes to facing God on one’s own judgment day, there is no hiding in groups, no “collective” anything. 
 
The idea of “collective salvation” or “collective redemption” is pure Marxism; there is nothing whatsoever Christian about it.

 

As Pope Benedict XVI has warned about Liberation Theology:

 

Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much.  Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes, not divine, but demonic.”
  – Truth and Tolerance; p. 116 …”
 

 

 

“…Black liberation theology, I have discovered (Read Part One here.), is yet another form of Third Way socialism, developed by Marxists seeking a way around the stubbornness of the ardently faithful, a way to hook folks on the revolution, without putting up a fight to eradicate their religion.


And Obama’s Chicago experiences seem to give him great hope that his cloak of religiosity will help to catapult him over the religious right and into the White House on the wings of liberation theology.

It played in Chicago and even in Peoria

 

One of the first lessons Barack Obama learned in Chicago, doing Alinsky-style political organizing between Columbia and Harvard, was that the religious communities were where the action was.

 

The first real power connection that Saul Alinsky himself made in his own class-struggle efforts in the 1930s was with the Archbishop of Chicago.  And it was in the churches and synagogues that Alinsky’s initial efforts to organize labor were successful.

 

What Obama found in Chicago churches in the 1980s, however, was not Martin Luther King’s ole time religion, the traditional Christianity of most of our ancestors, both black and white.  No, what Obama found was a religion perfectly compatible with his own, already well-formed, far-left worldview.

 

The Black Liberation Theology of James H. Cone.  Marxism emblazoned with a cross and a pulpit, pretending to use the Bible for its authority.

 

Before Obama even left Chicago for Harvard Law school, he had been embraced by the strange cabal of some of Chicago’s most radical and activist religious leaders, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan and Michael Pfleger.  Liberationists all.

 

Wright, the black Protestant.  Farrakhan, the Black Muslim.  And Pfleger, the white Catholic….”

“To avoid being mistaken for such a sellout, I chose my friends carefully: the more politically active black students, the foreign students, the Chicanos, the Marxist professors and structural feminists, and punk rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Frantz Fanon, Euro-centrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet, or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting Bourgeois society’s stifling constraints. We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated.”

Beatings and abuse made Barack Obama’s grandfather loathe the British

The President-elect’s relatives have told how the family was a victim of the Mau Mau revolt

Ben Macintyre and Paul Orengoh

“…Barack Obama’s grandfather was imprisoned and brutally tortured by the British during the violent struggle for Kenyan independence, according to the Kenyan family of the US President-elect.

Hussein Onyango Obama, Mr Obama’s paternal grandfather, became involved in the Kenyan independence movement while working as a cook for a British army officer after the war. He was arrested in 1949 and jailed for two years in a high-security prison where, according to his family, he was subjected to horrific violence to extract information about the growing insurgency.

“The African warders were instructed by the white soldiers to whip him every morning and evening till he confessed,” said Sarah Onyango, Hussein Onyango’s third wife, the woman Mr Obama refers to as “Granny Sarah”.

Mrs Onyango, 87, described how “white soldiers” visited the prison every two or three days to carry out “disciplinary action” on the inmates suspected of subversive activities.

“He said they would sometimes squeeze his testicles with parallel metallic rods. They also pierced his nails and buttocks with a sharp pin, with his hands and legs tied together with his head facing down,” she said The alleged torture was said to have left Mr Onyango permanently scarred, and bitterly antiBritish. “That was the time we realised that the British were actually not friends but, instead, enemies,” Mrs Onyango said. “My husband had worked so diligently for them, only to be arrested and detained.”

Mr Obama refers briefly to his grandfather’s imprisonment in his best-selling memoir, Dreams from My Father, but states that his grandfather was “found innocent” and held only for “more than six months”. …”

Rush Limbaugh on Glenn Beck: Obama and Free Speech

Interview with Roger Ailes president of Fox News Channel

Obama’s Enemies list has thousands on it but the top twenty are mostly talk radio and television commentors including the usual suspects:

Who is on President Barack Obama’s Growing Enemies List:
!. Rush Limbaugh
2. Glenn Beck
3. Sean Hannity
4. Fox News
5. Mark Levin
6. Michael Savage
7. Karl Rove
8. Dick  Cheney
9. Neal Boortz
10. Sarah Palin
11. Ann Coulter
12. Bill Bennett
13. Laura Ingraham
14. Dick Morris
15. Sam Vaknin
16. Alex Jones
17. Bill O’Reilly
18. Michelle Malkin
19. Lou Dobbs
20. Michael Gallagher

While the list grows daily and the ranking changes, it would appear that President Obama has a very thin skin when it comes to constructive criticism.

The truth does hurt especially when you are President with a well deserved reputation for lying daily.

“The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it.  If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth:  if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.”

  ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

Rush Limbaugh named top talk radio host by influential trade mag; 9 of top 10 are anti-Obama

By David Hinckley
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

“…The top four talkers – Limbaugh, Hannity, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage – have all been non-stop, full-time critics of pretty much everything about Obama except his shoelaces and his toothpaste.

The top 10 also includes non-Obama fans Laura Ingraham, No. 6, and Mark Levin, No. 8.

In fact, advice guru Dr. Laura Schlessinger (No. 5), and finance guys Dave Ramsey (No. 7) and Lou Dobbs (No. 9) don’t much care for Obama, either.

Obama’s Enemies List Grows
By Mark Hyman

“…Just having the appearance of someone who might possibly vote for an opponent of Barack Obama could land them on the President’s enemies list where proxies do the dirty work. Political appointees in the Justice Department killed a six-month investigation by career DOJ lawyers into the most blatant voter intimidation case in 40 years. Last November, jack-booted, uniformed, baton-wielding thugs from the New Black Panther Party calling themselves “security” obstructed a Philadelphia polling location and behaved in an intimidating manner toward white voters. …”

Obama’s Enemies List
Peter Wehner

“…The Obama White House is showing a fondness for intimidation tactics that might work well in the wards of Chicago but that don’t have a place in the most important and revered political institution in America. To see these impulses manifest themselves so early in Obama’s presidency, and given all that he has said to the contrary, is rather startling. The danger is that as the pressures mount and the battles accrue and the political heat intensifies, these impulses will grow stronger, the constraints on them will grow weaker, and the voices of caution and reason will continue to be ignored. If that should come to pass — if what we are seeing now is only a preview of coming attractions — then the Obama administration, and this nation, will pay a very high price. …”

Barack Obama’s Big Con and Extortion Racket–High Crimes: Financial System Reform Actually Stealing Trillions From American People By Taxing Them Through Their Banks!

Obama Looks to Work With Wall Street


 

The progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republican parties favored the bailout of banks and other financial institutions first under President George W. Bush and then under President Barack Obama.

The vast majority of the American people opposed the bailouts but the political class of both parties said we know what is best and ignored the will of the American people.

While there were many individuals, governments, and institutions responsible for the financial crisis of 2008 that continues even today, the two main enablers and primary cause for this financial meltdown and mess is the Federal Reserve System and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Economic Crisis: Causes & Cures (4 of 7)

What is interesting is that these financial  institutions are or were perceived as  quasi government institutions.

The Federal Reserve by dramatically reducing interest rates to near zero fueled the real estate bubble or rapidly rising housing prices, until the bubble burst.

The Federal Reserve or Fed provided the money or credit that enabled the banks to loan money for real estate mortgage loans for housing as well as commercial real estate.

President Obama never mentions that it was government intervention by the Federal Reserve that recklessly expanded the money supply and credit resulting in very low interest rate loans or mortgages loans  for real estate to people who would not normally qualify for the loan.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac purchased these  mortgages from the banks for the packaging that enabled banks to make  poor credit risk mortgage loans and then turn around and sell them to either Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

President Obama is a con artist that loves to tell the big lie of no new taxes to the American people as he taxes them by  first taxing their local bank or financial institution who then collects or pays for the tax by charging  their customers higher fees.

Obama Pledges to Not Raise Middle Class Taxes

These taxes on local community banks and financial institutions will be used to bailout larger failed banks who need a bailout.

While the tax is indirect and hidden, the result is the same, the American people are paying more  for banking services.

This is a hidden  tax for any one that uses a local bank.

These taxes will fund future bailouts of large banks and other financial institutions who are just “too big to fail.”

It is not the function of the Federal government to bailout failed businesses  by taxing the American people through  their local banks.

Bailouts, subsidies, wage and price controls, and government regulation are subverting the American free enterprise market capitalism system.

The current financial crisis is primarily due to massive government intervention in the housing and mortgage loan markets by both Democrats and Republicans.

The solution is not more regulation, bailouts, subsidies and taxes.

The solution is smaller and limited government.

Government is too big to fail and yet it repeatedly fails.

The time is now for the political class to pay  a high price for their mismanagement or more precisely government intervention into competitive markets.

Vote them out of office.

Failed institutions should be either sold in FDIC receivership or go  through bankruptcy court for final resolution of the business.

The Federal Government should get out of the banking and loan business.

The financial regulation reform bill should be defeated for it institutionalize theft by the Federal Government and more and bigger bailouts in the future.

The initial $50 billion fund for bailouts will grow into trillions of dollars.

President Obama is conning and selling out the American people as he pays-off his campaign contributors namely the executives of big banks and financial institutions that contributed to his Presidential campaign in 2008.

This is the progressive radical socialist Democratic Party using the Federal Government to stick up the American people at their local bank.

Time to blow the whistle on the crime of the century.

Let the too big to fail commercial, investment and mortgage banks–fail!

This is market regulation–you make high risk  investments and lose–the American people will not bail you out.

One or two “too big to fail”–failures, and these financial institutions will suddenly get free market religion.

No more subsidies and bailouts.

Ban bailouts, end the Fed, liquidate  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, stop subsidies,  and replace federal Government regulation with market regulation. 

Vote for a big bailout bill–a tax increase– and we the people will vote you out of office in the next three elections.

You can take it to the bank.

“As Willie Sutton the bank robber said when asked why he robbed banks, ‘because that’s where the money is’.”

~Attributed To Willie Sutton, Bank Robber

“”Why did I rob banks? Because I enjoyed it. I loved it. I was more alive when I was inside a bank, robbing it, than at any other time in my life. I enjoyed everything about it so much that one or two weeks later I’d be out looking for the next job. But to me the money was the chips, that’s all.”

~Bill Sutton, Bank Robber

Background Articles and Videos

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac not included in financial reform legislation
Rick Moran

“…Congress is considering legislation that would reform the entire financial system of the United States – except the now government controlled mortgage companies Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae, and Freddie Mac.

The purpose of this legislation is to prevent another financial meltdown. If so, why no new oversight for Fannie and Freddie? This Investors Business Daily editorial explains:

The panic of 2008 drove all private-sector investors from the secondary mortgage market. At present, only Fannie, Freddie and Ginnie Mae issue mortgage-backed securities. Thus far in 2010, Fannie has issued $91.5 billion in MBS, Freddie $65.7 billion and Ginnie $23.9 billion.
“The administration and the majority party never saw or admitted that the GSEs played any role in the cause of the financial crisis,” said Rep. Scott Garrett, R-N.J. “If you don’t see it as a cause, you don’t see a need to fix it.”

Key Democrats insist that the GSEs are not being overlooked.

“This is a favorite talking point of the right wing, that you can’t have reform without Fannie and Freddie,” said a spokesman for Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. “But they have not yet made a policy case why GSE reform needs to be part of regulatory reform.”

Frank has said he wants to abolish Fannie and Freddie in their current form. His committee is holding hearings on government’s future role in the housing market.

At a March hearing, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner suggested that GSEs needed reform, but that there was a strong case for “some form of guarantee by the government to help facilitate a stable housing finance market.” No concrete plan was forthcoming, he said. …”

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/04/fannie_mae_and_freddie_mac_not.html

The bank robber, THE QUOTE, and the final irony

“…In his second book, Sutton tells, with pride, of how the medical profession adopted “Sutton’s Law”–the idea of looking for the obvious, before going further afield, when diagnosing. The “law” was coined by a medical professor who recalled that Sutton, when asked by a reporter why he robbed banks, had answered with his famous line.

Except it never happened that way. As he describes in the book, Sutton:

“The irony of using a bank robber’s maxim as an instrument for teaching medicine is compounded, I will now confess, by the fact that I never said it. The credit belongs to some enterprising reporter who apparently felt a need to fill out his copy…

“If anybody had asked me, I’d have probably said it. That’s what almost anybody would say. …it couldn’t be more obvious.

“Or could it?

“Why did I rob banks? Because I enjoyed it. I loved it. I was more alive when I was inside a bank, robbing it, than at any other time in my life. I enjoyed everything about it so much that one or two weeks later I’d be out looking for the next job. But to me the money was the chips, that’s all.”

Yet, by appropriating the quote sufficiently for a title for his second book, Sutton started a chain reaction that continues to this day. This is not the first time the truth was pointed out. Yet the myth persists.

Ironically, for the man who could bust out of high-security prisons, escape from a fiction has proven not only impossible, but self-inflicted as well. The day Where the Money Was took its name, Willie Sutton was handcuffed to a lie for eternity. …”

 Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 to December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the  Socialist Party of America.
 
 The Socialist Party candidate for President of the US., Norman Thomas, said
 this in a 1944 speech:
 
 “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the
 name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist
 program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing
 how it happened.! “

 He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for
 the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.”
 
“… Socialism… is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created. It does not build; it destroys. For destruction is the essence of it. It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership in the means of production has created. …”

~Ludwig von Mises, Socialism, page 414

The one required book that you should read to learn what socialism is all about is :

Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis
by Ludwig von Mises

This masterwork is much more than a refutation of the economics of socialism (although on that front, nothing else compares). It is also a critique of the entire intellectual apparatus that accompanies the socialist idea, including the implicit religious doctrines behind Western socialist thinking, a cultural critique of socialist teaching on sex and marriage, an refutation of syndicalism and corporatism, an examination of the implications of radical human inequality, an attack on war socialism, and refutation of collectivist methodology.

In short, Mises set out to refute socialism, and instead pulled up the socialist mentality from its very roots. For that reason, Socialism led dozens of famous intellectuals, including a young F.A. Hayek, into a crisis of faith and a realist/libertarian political orientation. All the collectivist literature combined cannot equal the intellectual achievement of this one volume. Own the Book

“…The only certain fact about Russian affairs under the Soviet regime with regard to which all people agree is: that the standard of living of the Russian masses is much lower than that of the masses in the country which is universally considered as the paragon of capitalism, the United States of America. If we were to regard the Soviet regime as an experiment, we would have to say that the experiment has clearly demonstrated the superiority of capitalism and the inferiority of socialism.”

~Ludwig von Mises. Scoialism

 

Then to learn where socialism eventually ends up going, read Friedrich A.. Hayke’s The Road to Serfdom.

http://mises.org/store/Road-to-Serfdom-The-P252.aspx

The Road To Serfsom

The Road to Serfdom is a book written by Friedrich von Hayek (recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1974) which transformed the landscape of political thought in the 20th century, shifting the terms of debate for millions of people across the political spectrum.[1][2] The Road to Serfdom is among the most influential and popular expositions of classical liberalism and libertarianism.

The title refers to economic and political policies which the author believes to invariably lead to the socio-economic condition known as “serfdom.”

The book was originally published by Routledge Press in March 1944 in the UK and then by the University of Chicago Press in September 1944. A condensed version of the book written by Max Eastman was then published as the lead article in the April issue of Reader’s Digest, with a press run of several million copies. This condensed version was then offered as a Book of the Month selection with a press run of over 600,000 copies. In February 1945 a picture-book version was published in Look magazine, later made into a pamphlet and distributed by General Motors. The book has been translated into approximately 20 languages and is dedicated to “The socialists of all parties.” The introduction to the 50th anniversary edition is written by Milton Friedman (another recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics 1976). In 2007, the University of Chicago Press put out a “Definitive Edition.” In total the book has sold over two million copies.[3]

…”

“…The Road to Serfdom was placed fourth on the list of the 100 best non-fiction books of the twentieth century compiled by National Review magazine. It also made #16 in reader selections of the hundred best non-fiction book of the twentieth century administered by Modern Library.[10]

The Road to Serfdom appears on Martin Seymour-Smith’s list of the 100 Most Influential Books Ever Written, whilst it made #1 on Human Events: Top Ten Books Every Republican Congressman Should Read in 2006.

The book continues to sell in the 10s of thousands of copies each year. Since the November 2008 election of Barack Obama, the University of Chicago Press has seen a massive increase in demand for this book.[citation needed]

Milton Friedman’s assessment:

” . . I think the Adam Smith role was played in this cycle [i.e. the late twentieth century collapse of socialism in which the idea of free-markets succeeded first, and then special events catalyzed a complete change of socio-political policy in countries around the world] by Friedrich Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom.”

Alan Brinkley’s assessment:

“The publication of two books .. helped to galvanize the concerns that were beginning to emerge among intellectuals (and many others) about the implications of totalitarianism. One was James Burnham’s The Managerial Revolution .. [A second] Friedrich A. Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom .. was far more controversial — and influential. Even more than Burnham, Hayek forced into public discourse the question of the compatibility of democracy and statism .. In responding to Burnham and Hayek .. liberals [in the statist sense of this term as used by some in the United States] were in fact responding to a powerful strain of Jeffersonian anti-statism in American political culture .. The result was a subtle but important shift in liberal [i.e. American statist] thinking.”

…”

“When watching men of power in action it must be always kept in mind that, whether they know it or not, their main purpose is the elimination or neutralization of the independent individual- the independent voter, consumer, worker, owner, thinker- and that every device they employ aims at turning men into a manipulable “animated instrument” which is Aristotle’s definition of a slave.”

The big lie communications strategy of repeating a lie works when people  listen to the lie or message many times.

The big lie communications strategy fails once the vast majority of the audience stop listening to the message and  liar.

Nearly every day on the radio, television, print media, and the blogs, President Obama’s lying is commented upon, both from the political right, center and left.

President Obama is simply no longer trusted nor believed by the majority of the American people.

The American people are turning President Obama off–they cannot stand to listen to his voice and his many lies.

The Obama Con is running out of suckers or true believers.

Black true believers will be the last to admit that Obama is a liar and failure.

Black true believers will find it hard to admit that Obama really does not given a damn about blacks.

Obama is a big advocate of Planned Parenthood and using abortion to kill black babies.

How Does Planned Parenthood Celebrate Black History Month?

Obama is a big supporter of the teacher unions that oppose giving blacks   money or vouchers to attend the school of their parents’ choice.

School Vouchers Killed by Democrat Congress – All poor children to be left behind now – Glenn Beck

Obama is a big supporter of a cap and trade energy tax that would significantly increase not only energy costs for gasoline, electricity, and heating, but also for all goods and services that needs electricity and transportation.

This new cap and trade energy tax would adversely impact blacks with a fixed income or low income.

Obama is a big supporter of compreshensive immigration reform or amnesty for illegal aliens and open borders.

The result is sky high unemployment rates for teenagers and blacks as illegal aliens take jobs that low skilled blacks used to do.

Obama & Illegal Immigration – Hoodrats vs Black Conservative

Eventually even the black true believers will join other progressive radical socialist Democrats and throw Obama under the bus.

The question will return again, “Is Obama black enough?”

More and more blacks will start to say, no he was not. 

Is Obama Doing Enough For Black People?

 

 

The Lord of Lies tyranny is being challenged by the American people, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and Libertarians.

Only the progressive radical socialist base are still supporting Obama.

Since the progressive radical socialist base is less than 20% of the American electorate, Obama will be a one term President.

Soon the progressive radical socialists will conclude that Obama is damaged goods, no longer a winner and a perceived loser.

Then the progressive radical socialist Democratic party bats,  guns and knives will come out as the contenders for 2012 take their shots and throw Obama under the bus–the Chicago Way!

“The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”

~Samuel Adams

World Economic Forum

“…The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a Geneva-based non-profit foundation best known for its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, which brings together top business leaders, international political leaders, selected intellectuals and journalists to discuss the most pressing issues facing the world, including health and the environment. Beside meetings, the WEF produces a series of research reports and engages its members in sector specific initiatives.[1] WEF also organizes the “Annual Meeting of the New Champions” in China and a series of regional meetings throughout the year. In 2008 those regional meetings included meetings on Europe and Central Asia, East Asia, the Russia CEO Roundtable, Africa, the Middle East, and the World Economic Forum on Latin America. In 2008 it launched the “Summit on the Global Agenda” in Dubai. 

The WEF was founded in 1971 by Klaus Martin Schwab, a German-born business professor at the University of Geneva.[2] Originally named the European Management Forum, it changed its name to the World Economic Forum in 1987 and sought to broaden its vision further to include providing a platform for resolving international conflicts. 

In the summer of 1971 Schwab invited 444 executives from Western European firms to the first European Management Symposium held in the Davos Congress Centre under the patronage of the European Commission and European industrial associations, where Schwab sought to introduce European firms to US management practices. He then founded the WEF as a non-profit organization based in Geneva and drew European business leaders to Davos for their annual meetings each January.[3] 

Schwab developed the “stakeholder” management approach which based corporate success on managers taking account of all interests: not merely shareholders, clients and customers, but employees and the communities within which the firm is situated, including governments.[4] Events in 1973 including the collapse of the Bretton Woods fixed exchange rate mechanism and the Arab-Israeli War saw the annual meeting expand its focus from management to economic and social issues, and political leaders were invited for the first time to Davos in January 1974.[5] 

 

As the years went by, political leaders began to use Davos as a neutral platform to resolve their differences. The Davos Declaration was signed in 1988 by Greece and Turkey, helping them turn back from the brink of war. In 1992 South African President F. W. de Klerk met with Nelson Mandela and Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi at the Annual Meeting, their first joint appearance outside South Africa. At the 1994 Annual Meeting, Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat reached a draft agreement on Gaza and Jericho.[6] In 2008 Bill Gates gave a keynote speech on Creative Capitalism, a form of capitalism that works both to generate profits and solve the world’s inequities, using market forces to better address the needs of the poor.[7][8] …”

The Big Obama Fix Is In–Unemployment, Housing and Transportation Crisis Solved–Happy Days Are Here Again!

Posted on February 11, 2010.

Happy days are here again ! – Harry Hudson’s Melody Men (1930)

 

The White House is seriously considering a suggestion made from one of their supporters in Florida:

“…The  Fix

There recently was an article in the  St. Petersburg Fl. Times. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on:  “How Would You Fix the Economy?” 
I think this guy nailed it! _____ 

Dear Mr. President

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America ‘s Economy.  
 

Instead of giving  Billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the “Patriotic Retirement Plan “: 

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.  Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations: 

1)  They MUST retire.  Forty million job openings – Unemployment fixed. 

2)  They MUST buy a new American CAR .  Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed. 

3)  They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed. 

It can’t get any easier than that!! 

P.S.. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes… 

Mr. President, while you’re at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I’ll bet both programs would be fixed pronto! 

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.  …”

Keynes Is Dead—-Obama Digging Up Keynes–Free Market Capitalism Lives

Posted on February 8, 2010. Filed under: Blogroll, Climate, Communications, Economics, Employment, Federal Government, Fiscal Policy, government, government spending, Law, liberty, Life, Links, media, Monetary Policy, People, Philosophy, Politics, Quotations, Rants, Raves, Regulations, Resources, Taxes, Video, Wisdom | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

“The unprecedented success of Keynesianism is due to the fact that it provides an apparent justification for the “deficit spending” policies of contemporary governments. It is the pseudo-philosophy of those who can think of nothing else than to dissipate the capital accumulated by previous generations.

“Yet no effusions of authors however brilliant and sophisticated can alter the perennial economic laws. They are and work and take care of themselves. Notwithstanding all the passionate fulminations of the spokesmen of governments, the inevitable consequences of inflationism and expansionism as depicted by the “orthodox” economists are coming to pass. And then, very late indeed, even simple people will discover that Keynes did not teach us how to perform the “miracle … of turning a stone into bread,” but the not at all miraculous procedure of eating the seed corn.”

Most of President Obama’s economic advisors are Keynesians not to be confused with economists.

Unfortunately much of Keynes’ economic policies have been proven to not work.

Yet President Obama like President Obama is totally ignorant of economics and must rely upon Keynesians.

This is only natural since President Obama is a progressive radical socialist who believes the solution to every problem is  bigger government.

Instead President would be well advised to fire his Keynesian team of advisors and replace them with economists that believe that the government should not interfere with the free market economy.

Since this is highly unlikely the American people must resist President Obama intentional plans to take the US economy off the cliff by ever rising Federal Government spending, taxes, debt, and regulations.

These economic policies will only destroy more jobs, wreck the economy and kill the American Dream.

 Only a  grassroots movement of the American people can stop the political class from destroying free market capitalism.

The time is now.

Inflation: Unemployment and Inflation

by Ludwig Von Mises

“…The most important thing to remember is that inflation is not an act of God; inflation is not a catastrophe of the elements or a disease that comes like the plague. Inflation is a policy–a deliberate policy of people who resort to inflation because they consider it to be a lesser evil than unemployment. But the fact is that, in the not very long run, inflation does not cure unemployment.

Inflation is a policy. And a policy can be changed. Therefore, there is no reason to give in to inflation. If one regards inflation as an evil, then one has to stop inflating. One has to balance the budget of the government. Of course, public opinion must support this; the intellectu­als must help the people to understand. Given the sup­port of public opinion, it is certainly possible for the people’s elected representatives to abandon the policy of inflation.

We must remember that, in the long run, we may all be dead and certainly will be dead. But we should arrange our earthly affairs, for the short run in which we have to live, in the best possible way. And one of the measures necessary for this purpose is to abandon inflationary policies.”

Keynesian Predictions vs. American History

Is Ron Paul Trying To Take Over The Republican Party?

Henry Hazlitt and the Failure of Keynesian Economics

By Richard M. Ebeling

“…The central flaw in Keynes’s thinking, Hazlitt insisted, was his unwillingness to acknowledge that the high unemployment in Great Britain in the 1920s and the United States in the 1930s was caused by government intervention, including the empowering of labor unions, that made many prices and wages virtually “rigid.” Political and special-interest power prevented markets from competitively re-establishing a balance between supply and demand for various goods. Hence, the market was trapped in wage and price distortions that destroyed employment and production opportunities, resulting in the Great Depression. (Hazlitt did not deny that the contraction of the money supply in the early 1930s increased the degree to which prices and wages had to fall to re-establish full employment.)

Hazlitt considered Keynes’s inflationary “fix” crude and dangerous. First, Hazlitt pointed out that Keynes’s focus on macroeconomic “aggregates” concealed the microeconomic relationships among a multitude of individual prices and wages. The price level, wage level, total output, aggregate demand, and aggregate supply were all statistical fictions that had no reality in the actual market. Thus the wage level could not be too high relative to the general price level. But in the 1930s many wages for different types of labor were out of balance with the prices of individual goods sold on the market. What was needed to restore full employment was an adjustment of numerous individual wages and resource prices to the lower prices of many consumer goods. The extent to which any individual money wage or resource price might have to adjust downwards depended on the distinct supply and demand conditions in each of the individual markets. …”

“…If The General Theory had so many fundamental flaws, how did it become, in the words of one of his most enthusiastic followers, “the Keynesian bible”?19 Hazlitt offered some possible reasons in his introduction to his edited volume, The Critics of Keynesian Economics, which appeared a year after his own book. He suggested that Keynes’s theories rationalized the politics of special-interest groups that desired to reap the benefits of an inflation. Also, while much of The General Theory is written in difficult language, Keynes could dazzle the reader with literary imagery and wit that hid his central logical flaws. Keynes used the “technique of obscure arguments followed by clear and triumphant conclusions,” Hazlitt said. And finally, Hazlitt conjectured that the success of the book may have had a lot to do with its appearing to overthrow the existing orthodoxy in favor of radical and fashionable ideas about social engineering. “But whatever the full explanation of the Keynesian cult,” Hazlitt concluded, “its existence is one of the great intellectual scandals of our age.”20 …”

President Obama is obsessed with Fox News in general and Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity in particular.

However the one person that beats out Fox and Beck is Rush Limbaugh followed closely by Mark Levin.

Rush Limbaugh’s Letter to President Obama Following State Of Union Address–Videos

 

Mark Levin–Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto–Videos

 

President Obama should recognize that Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Roger Ailes are friends.

President Obama should also recognize that their audencies are massively huge.

When President Obama attacks Fox News and talk radio, Obama is attacking hundreds of millions of viewers and listeners–Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, conservatives, libertarians, liberals, progressives and even socialists and communists.

Why is President Obama obsessed with them?

Fox News routinely, if not daily, points out President Obama’s lies, broken promises and economic policies that are destroying jobs, wrecking the economy and killing the American dream. 

Listen to Fox News, talk radio and the blogs every day and  the three most common observations about President Obama is he is a habitual liar, a highly arrogant narcissist and is very good reading speeches from a teleprompter.

What is striking about the President’s well read speeches  is the high pronoun density of the words I and me–one of the many clues that you may be listening to a person with narcisstistic personality disorder.

Two other clues are the lying and body language. 

President Obama should make the red phone call and  seek professional help, therapy and a life line from the President’s Analyst!

Otherwise, you will continue to repeat your mistakes.

How to Recognise a Narcissist?

Frequently Asked Question # 58

Narcissism, Pathological Narcissism, The Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), the Narcissist,

and Relationships with Abusive Narcissists and Psychopaths

By: Dr. Sam Vaknin

 

By: Dr. Sam Vaknin

  

Emotional, Verbal, and Psychological Abuse, Domestic and Family Violence and Spousal Abuse 

 

“…Narcissism is regarded by many scholars to be an adaptative strategy (“healthy narcissism“). It is considered pathological in the clinical sense only when it becomes a rigid personality structure replete with a series of primitive defence mechanisms (such as splitting, projection, projective identification, or intellectualization) – and when it leads to dysfunctions in one or more areas of the patient’s life.

Pathological narcissism is the art of deception. The narcissist projects a False Self and manages all his social interactions through this concocted fictional construct.

When the narcissist reveals his true colors, it is usually far too late. His victims are unable to separate from him. They are frustrated by this acquired helplessness and angry at themselves for having they failed to see through the narcissist earlier on.

But the narcissist does emit subtle, almost subliminal, signals (“presenting symptoms”) even in a first or casual encounter. …”

“…These are:

“Haughty” body language – The narcissist adopts a physical posture which implies and exudes an air of superiority, seniority, hidden powers, mysteriousness, amused indifference, etc. Though the narcissist usually maintains sustained and piercing eye contact, he often refrains from physical proximity (he is “territorial”).

The narcissist takes part in social interactions – even mere banter – condescendingly, from a position of supremacy and faux “magnanimity and largesse”. But he rarely mingles socially and prefers to remain the “observer”, or the “lone wolf”.

Entitlement markers – The narcissist immediately asks for “special treatment” of some kind. Not to wait his turn, to have a longer or a shorter therapeutic session, to talk directly to authority figures (and not to their assistants or secretaries), to be granted special payment terms, to enjoy custom tailored arrangements – or to get served first.

The narcissist is the one who – vocally and demonstratively – demands the undivided attention of the head waiter in a restaurant, or monopolizes the hostess, or latches on to celebrities in a party. The narcissist reacts with rage and indignantly when denied his wishes and if treated equally with others whom he deems inferior.

Idealization or devaluation – The narcissist instantly idealizes or devalues his interlocutor. This depends on how the narcissist appraises the potential his converser has as a Narcissistic Supply Source. The narcissist flatters, adores, admires and applauds the “target” in an embarrassingly exaggerated and profuse manner – or sulks, abuses, and humiliates her.

Narcissists are polite only in the presence of a potential Supply Source. But they are unable to sustain even perfunctory civility and fast deteriorate to barbs and thinly-veiled hostility, to verbal or other violent displays of abuse, rage attacks, or cold detachment.

The “membership” posture – The narcissist always tries to “belong”. Yet, at the very same time, he maintains his stance as an outsider. The narcissist seeks to be admired for his ability to integrate and ingratiate himself without investing the efforts commensurate with such an undertaking.

For instance: if the narcissist talks to a psychologist, the narcissist first states emphatically that he never studied psychology. He then proceeds to make seemingly effortless use of obscure professional terms, thus demonstrating that he mastered the discipline all the same, as an autodidact – which proves that he is exceptionally intelligent or introspective.

In general, the narcissist always prefers show-off to substance. One of the most effective methods of exposing a narcissist is by trying to delve deeper. The narcissist is shallow, a pond pretending to be an ocean. He likes to think of himself as a Renaissance man, a Jack of all trades. The narcissist never admits to ignorance in any field – yet, typically, he is ignorant of them all. It is surprisingly easy to penetrate the gloss and the veneer of the narcissist’s self-proclaimed omniscience.

Bragging and false autobiography – The narcissist brags incessantly. His speech is peppered with “I”, “my”, “myself”, and “mine”. He describes himself as intelligent, or rich, or modest, or intuitive, or creative – but always excessively, implausibly, and extraordinarily so.

The narcissist’s biography sounds unusually rich and complex. His achievements – incommensurate with his age, education, or renown. Yet, his actual condition is evidently and demonstrably incompatible with his claims. Very often, the narcissist lies or his fantasies are easily discernible. He always name-drops and appropriates other people’s experiences and accomplishments.

Emotion-free language – The narcissist likes to talk about himself and only about himself. He is not interested in others or what they have to say, unless they constitute potential Sources of Supply and in order to obtain said supply. He acts bored, disdainful, even angry, if he feels that they are intruding on his precious time and, thus, abusing him.

In general, the narcissist is very impatient, easily bored, with strong attention deficits – unless and until he is the topic of discussion. One can publicly dissect all aspects of the intimate life of a narcissist without repercussions, providing the discourse is not “emotionally tinted”. …”

Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Re-Visited

“…The narcissist is an actor in a monodrama, yet forced to remain behind the scenes. The scenes take center stage, instead. The Narcissist does not cater at all to his own needs. Contrary to his reputation, the Narcissist does not “love” himself in any true sense of the word.

He feeds off other people, who hurl back at him an image that he projects to them. This is their sole function in his world: to reflect, to admire, to applaud, to detest – in a word, to assure him that he exists. Otherwise, the narcissist feels, they have no right to tax his time, energy, or emotions.

The main body of research about Narcissism is surveyed in the book.

Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Re-Visited offers a detailed, first hand account of what it is like to have a Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It contains new insights and an organized methodological framework. The first part of the book comprises more than 100 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding relationships with abusive narcissists and the Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

The posting of Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Re-Visited on the Web has elicited a flood of excited, sad and heart rending responses, mostly from victims of Narcissists but also from people suffering from the NPD. This is a true picture of the resulting correspondence with them.

This book is not intended to please or to entertain. NPD is a pernicious, vile and tortuous disease, which affects not only the Narcissist. It infects and forever changes people who are in daily contact with the Narcissist. In other words: it is contagious. It is my contention that Narcissism is the mental epidemic of the twentieth century, a plague to be fought by all means.

This tome is my contribution to minimizing the damages of this disorder. …”

Barack Obama’s Theme Song

Bee Gees – I Started a Joke–

 

I started a joke, which started the whole world crying,
But I didn’t see that the joke was on me, oh no.
I started to cry, which started the whole world laughing,
Oh, if I’d only seen that the joke was on me. 

I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
And I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I’d said. 

Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I’d only seen that the joke was on me. 

I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
And I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I’d said. 

Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I’d only seen that the joke was one me.

American People Response

Ray Stevens – We The People

Bee Gees – Massachusetts 

Feel I’m going back to Massachusetts
Something’s telling me I must go home
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
The day I left her standing on her own 

Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco
Gotta do the things I wanna do
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
They brought me back to see my way with you 

Talk about the life in Massachusetts
Speak about the people I have seen
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts 

I will remember Massachusetts
I will remember Massachusetts  

We The People arrived at this moment due to massive Federal Government intervention into the economy with higher  taxes, spending, deficits, debts, bailouts and subsidies.  

Until entire Federal Departments are shut-down and closed permanently and a FairTax replaces all Federal taxes, neither political party is seriously fiscally responsible. 

The progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republican parties are the problem and the cause of massive government intervention into the free market process and the result is the Obama Depression. 

The American people have had enough of the progressive radical socialist political class and elites in Washington D. C. 

President Obama arrogantly reading more lies and promises no longer inspires or impresses the American people. 

The American people no longer believe or trust President Obama. 

The American people know we are broke. 

The American people are marching and rising. 

The Second American Revolution has begun. 

Time to throw the tyrants out of office.

Pete Seeger: Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

 

 

“… 
 

  • The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.
  • Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
  • Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??

“The cyclical fluctuations of business are not an occurrence originating in the sphere of the unhampered market, but a product of government interference with business conditions designed to lower the rate of interest below the height at which the free market would have fixed it.”

~Ludwig von Mises, Human Action, pages 562 and 565.

Among liberal and progressive radical socialists the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt was and is now considered one of the top three greatest Presidents that ever lived in the same class as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Read American historians, who also are mostly liberals and progressives and whose knowledge of economics is as limited or even more limited than President Roosevelt, they too believe in the greatness of FDR.

This legend is the biggest myth or more precisely lie ever told and endless repeated.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was simply the worse President the United States has ever had in terms of the impact his economic policies had on the American economy and American people.

If you doubt this, I strongly recommend you read all of the above books.

What is so disturbing and very dangerous is that one of Barack Obama Presidential role models is Franklin Roosevelt.

President Obama  has surrounded himself with economic and political advisors who are progressive radical socialists that actually believe that repeating FDR’s economic policies would be a good for the country.

Thus the massive bailouts, stimulus packages, massive budget deficits, huge increases in the national debt, proposed new tax increases including the Cap and Trade Energy Tax,  letting the Bush tax cuts expire in 2010, and the new health care bill forcing people to buy health insurance or pay a tax fine.

Barack Obama and Franklin D. Roosevelt have many characteristics in common.

Both were educated at Harvard and Columbia Universities.

Both were excellent readers of prepared speeches.

Both were habitual liars.

Both were great believers in class warfare on businesses and the rich with very high progressive  income tax rates while at the same time imposing  hidden very regressive excise taxes on low and middle income Americans.

Both were ignorant of economics. job and wealth creation

Both destroyed jobs and wrecked the U.S. economy.

Good intentions are not enough.

Results count.

President Obama is intentionally repeating the economic mistakes of President Roosevelt that will destroy both free market capitalism and democracy and lead to a totalitarian command and control socialist economy.

I hope President Obama fails early and often and is a one term President that in the process destroys the Democratic Party of progressive radical socialists.

With over 25,000,000 Americans seeking fully time employment, repeating the mistakes of Keynesian government interventist economic policies that have repeatedly failed in country after country will only prolong the duration of the  Obama Depression.

Republican and Democratic Presidents, in the past and present, Hoover and Roosevelt, and Bush and Obama, have failed the American people by implementing massive government intervention in the free market capitalist economy.

Read and listen to economist Thomas Sowell on President Obama’s economic policies using Roosevelt as a model:

“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

~George Santayana

What is Wrong With The Republican Party? Exhibit A: Senator Graham On The Green Economy–Supporting The Progressive Radical Socialist Agenda!

Posted on November 5, 2009. Filed under: Blogroll, Climate, Communications, Computers, Economics, Education, Fiscal Policy, Law, liberty, Life, Links, People, Philosophy, Politics, Technology, Video, Wisdom | Tags: , , , , , , , |

 

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed [and hence clamorous to be led to safety] by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

~H.L. Mencken

 

Graham: ‘The Green Economy Is Coming’

Graham: We need to use the coal that God has given us

Lindsey Graham on Cap and Trade Greenville town hall

Cap and Trade: It’s an Energy Tax

First, the crisis was global cooling.

Second, the crisis was global warming.

Third, the crisis was climate change.

Fourth, the crisis was carbon dioxide pollution.

Fifth, the crisis is now carbon pollution.

Unstoppable Solar Cycles

Nice try Senators, but the American people know what you are up to.

The progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republican parties are attempting to convince the American people that they should pay more taxes in the form of a cap and trade energy tax.

The American people to the Senators–reduce carbon emissions–stop eating and breathing–drop dead.

I agree with Senator Graham as to what needs to done to make the United States more energy independent.

Build 10 nuclear energy power plants each year over the next twenty-five years for a total of 250 nuclear power plants. Each state would have 5 new nuclear plants.

This would mean that 60% of the electrical power generation in the United States would come from nuclear power plants by 2035.

The United States would dramatically reduce its reliance on coal and gas, and oil for electrical power, heating and transportation.

Is Nuclear Power Worth the Environmental Cost?

 

Could Nuclear Power Save the Planet?

http://fora.tv/2007/09/14/Could_Nuclear_Power_Save_the_Planet

Drill for oil and gas in the United States and off the coasts.

Both cars and trucks will gradually transition to an all electrical vehicles.

The problem I have with Senator Graham is all the nonsense about carbon pollution or more precisely carbon dioxide pollution.

MAJOR REDUCTIONS IN CARBON EMISSIONS ARE NOT WORTH THE MONEY DEBATE: PETER HUBER

CO2-Pollutant or Miracle Gas?

Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.

Yes Senator, you are not a scientist.

The cap and trade bill is all about a massive energy tax.

Cap and Trade is a Massive Energy Tax Bill?

What is buried in the Cap and Trade Bill?

Now if the government would only get out of the way by stop taxing and regulating the American people.

Let free enterprise and markets work for real change and hope.

Leave the American people alone!

Cut the crap about climate crisis and carbon pollution.

Any politician  who votes for a cap and trade energy tax as well as comprehensive immigraion reform deserves to be defeated.

If Senator Graham and Senator McCain want a redo on cap and trade and comprehensive immigration reform, more conservatives and libetarians will stop voting for Republican candidates.

The Rockefeller or country club Republicans with their progressive radical socialism agenda are the problem with the Republican Party.

Do the right thing and become a Democrat like Senator Arlen Specter.

The focus should be on  wealth and job creation for American citizens.

“Before a man speaks it is always safe to assume that he is a fool. After he speaks, it is seldom necessary to assume it.”

How Carbon Dioxide Became a ‘Pollutant’

By KEITH JOHNSON

“…The Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to classify rising carbon-dioxide emissions as a hazard to human health is the latest twist in a debate that has raged for decades among politicians, scientists and industry: whether a natural component of the earth’s atmosphere should be considered a pollutant.

The EPA’s finding doesn’t say carbon dioxide, or CO2, is by itself a pollutant — it is, after all, a gas that humans exhale and plants inhale. Rather, it is the increasing concentrations of the gas that concern the agency.

Carbon-dioxide levels in the Earth’s atmosphere have fluctuated wildly for millennia; at one point billions of years ago, it was the dominant gas in the atmosphere. …”

“…
The EPA lumped carbon dioxide with five other gases — methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride — into a single class for regulatory purposes. That’s because they share similar properties: All are long-lived and well-mixed in the atmosphere; all trap heat that otherwise would leave the earth and go into outer space; and all are “directly emitted as greenhouse gases” rather than forming later in the atmosphere.

Alternatively, tropospheric ozone wasn’t included in the class, even though it creates smog and contributes to global warming. But that gas isn’t emitted directly; rather, it is created in the atmosphere when sunlight reacts with greenhouse gases emitted by human activity such as engine combustion and industrial processes.

Similarly, the EPA declined to consider regulating water vapor or soot, also known as “black carbon,” both of which are big contributors to the greenhouse effect but which don’t share common properties with the six greenhouse gases.

The EPA did acknowledge some positive impacts from higher CO2 concentrations.

One is faster-growing trees in tropical forests, which helps offset deforestation. Another is marshes that can more quickly grow above rising sea levels, providing an insurance policy of sorts for some low-lying areas against the potential ravages of rising sea levels resulting from warmer global temperatures.

The EPA also acknowledged some positive aspects of rising temperatures, but concluded that on balance, the negative impacts of climate change outweigh the positive. …”

Ugh: McCain & Company melting on cap-and-tax

By Michelle Malkin  

“…I said it last month and it bears repeating: Beware the Climate Change Republicans.

Are you ready for the latest signs of capitulation by GOP global warming preacher Sen. John McCain and company?

1) Senate Dems opening to nuclear as a path to GOP support, 60 votes

Key Senate Democrats signaled yesterday they are willing to negotiate with Republicans on nuclear power and expanded domestic oil and gas development if it helps in nailing down the 60 votes necessary for floor passage on a comprehensive global warming and energy bill.

“Every idea is on the table,” said Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.), the lead sponsor of Senate climate legislation. “We’re going to work in a bona fide way with everybody to see how to bridge a gap here. We’ve got to get a 60-vote margin. That means you’ve got to legislate, which means you have to compromise.”

Several moderate Senate Republicans, including John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said they are in talks with Kerry and Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) on the nuclear language, as well as other key issues.

“A guy like Senator Kerry is looking for coalitions,” Graham said. “If you had a bill that would allow for responsible offshore drilling, a robust nuclear power title, I think you could get some Republican votes for a cap-and-trade system.”

2) Lieberman Goes Nuclear on Climate Bill

While he’s no longer a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, Sen. Joe Lieberman (ID-Conn.) has been working behind the scenes to try to woo bipartisan support for a climate change bill this year. Lieberman, who relinquished his seat on the EPW panel after actively campaigning for Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential bid, is aligning with a group of Senators including McCain, Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Tom Carper (D-Del.). The Senators are crafting a nuclear energy amendment that they hope will be the key to getting some type of climate change reform approved by the chamber in the coming months. Last week, EPW Chairman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.) unveiled a far-reaching climate measure. But the bill — which is seen largely as a place holder — has few fans. “Do I think the climate change bill is going anywhere? No. But in its ashes are opportunities for bipartisan, incremental reform,” Burr said. Indeed, McCain suggested Lieberman’s amendment could be offered as an alternative way of tackling climate change, rather than the broad Boxer-Kerry bill. “I introduced legislation with Sen. Lieberman in the past twice. I’m certainly not opposed to it,” McCain said. …”

What did I tell ya? Lindsey Graham signs on to cap-and-tax

By Michelle Malkin

“…I hate to say “I told you so.”

But, well, I told you so.

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham has signed on to the Democrats’ massive green redistribution scheme masquerading as a planet-saving, national security-enhancing “energy independence” scheme.

Can John McCain and the rest of the Climate Change Republicans be far behind?

First, a quick trip down GOP eco-sellout memory lane:

Digging deeper: The enviro-nitwit-ization of the GOP By Michelle Malkin • December 13, 2007 02:08 AM

Now, the announcement of Graham’s alliance with Big Government Democrats. In the NYTimes, natch:

…we refuse to accept the argument that the United States cannot lead the world in addressing global climate change. We are also convinced that we have found both a framework for climate legislation to pass Congress and the blueprint for a clean-energy future that will revitalize our economy, protect current jobs and create new ones, safeguard our national security and reduce pollution.

Our partnership represents a fresh attempt to find consensus that adheres to our core principles and leads to both a climate change solution and energy independence. It begins now, not months from now — with a road to 60 votes in the Senate.

It’s true that we come from different parts of the country and represent different constituencies and that we supported different presidential candidates in 2008. We even have different accents. But we speak with one voice in saying that the best way to make America stronger is to work together to address an urgent crisis facing the world. …”

Progressive Party (United States, 1912)

“…In the United States, the Progressive Party of 1912 was a political party created by a split in the Republican Party in the presidential election of 1912. It was formed by Theodore Roosevelt when he lost the Republican nomination to William Howard Taft and pulled his delegates out of the convention. The party is colloquially also known as the Bull Moose Party, after the party’s emblem and after Roosevelt’s boast that he was “as strong as a bull moose”.

To destroy this invisible Government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.” – 1912 Progressive Party Platform, attributed to Theodore Roosevelt[1] and quoted again in his autobiography[2] where he connects Trusts and monopolies (sugar interests, Standard Oil, etc.) to Woodrow Wilson and William Howard Taft, and consequently both major political parties.

16-page campaign booklet with party platform

The great majority of Republican governors, congressmen, editors and local leaders refused to join the new party, even if they had supported Roosevelt before. Johnson, the Vice-Presidential nominee, who had been elected Governor in California in 1910, remained a member of the Republican Party (GOP) because his supporters took control of the GOP in California. However, many independent reformers signed up. Two important activists were Gifford Pinchot and his brother Amos Pinchot. The Progressive Party also endorsed a number of sympathetic candidates from the Republican and Democratic parties in state and federal elections from 1912 to 1916.

Only five of the 15 most prominent progressive Republicans in the Senate endorsed the new party and Roosevelt’s candidacy for President; three came out for Wilson. Many of Roosevelt’s closest political allies supported Taft, including his son-in-law, Nicholas Longworth. Roosevelt’s daughter Alice Roosevelt Longworth stuck with her father, causing a permanent chill in her marriage. For men like Longworth, expecting a future in politics, bolting the Republican party ticket was simply too radical a step. Progressives who did not aspire to elective office often went with Woodrow Wilson.

…”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_Party_(United_States,_1912)

Woodrow Wilson

“…Thomas Woodrow Wilson (December 28, 1856–February 3, 1924)[1] was the 28th President of the United States. A leading intellectual of the Progressive Era, he served as President of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910, and then as the Governor of New Jersey from 1911 to 1913. With Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft dividing the Republican Party vote, Wilson was elected President as a Democrat in 1912. To date he is the only President to hold a doctorate of philosophy (PhD) degree and the only President to serve in a political office in New Jersey before election to the Presidency.

In his first term, Wilson persuaded a Democratic Congress to pass the Federal Reserve Act,[2] Federal Trade Commission, the Clayton Antitrust Act, the Federal Farm Loan Act and America’s first-ever federal progressive income tax in the Revenue Act of 1913. In a move that garnered a backlash from civil rights groups, and is still criticized today, Wilson allowed segregation in many federal agencies,[3][4] which involved firing black workers from numerous posts.[5]

Narrowly re-elected in 1916, Wilson’s second term centered on World War I. He based his re-election campaign around the slogan “he kept us out of the war,” but U.S. neutrality would be short-lived. When the German government proposed to Mexico in the Zimmermann Telegram a military alliance in a war against the U.S. (promising the return of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas), and began unrestricted submarine warfare, Wilson in April 1917 asked Congress to declare war. He focused on diplomacy and financial considerations, leaving the waging of the war primarily in the hands of the Army. On the home front, he began the United States’ first effective draft in 1917, raised billions in war funding through Liberty Bonds, set up the War Industries Board, promoted labor union growth, supervised agriculture and food production through the Lever Act, took over control of the railroads, enacted the first federal drug prohibition, and suppressed anti-war movements. National women’s suffrage was also achieved under Wilson’s presidency.

In the late stages of the war, Wilson took personal control of negotiations with Germany, including the armistice. He issued his Fourteen Points, his view of a post-war world that could avoid another terrible conflict. He went to Paris in 1919 to create the League of Nations and shape the Treaty of Versailles, with special attention on creating new nations out of defunct empires. Largely for his efforts to form the League, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1919, during the bitter fight with the Republican-controlled Senate over the U.S. joining the League of Nations, Wilson collapsed with a debilitating stroke. He refused to compromise, effectively destroying any chance for ratification. The League of Nations was established anyway, but the United States never joined. Wilson’s idealistic internationalism, now referred to as “Wilsonianism”, which calls for the United States to enter the world arena to fight for democracy, has been a contentious position in American foreign policy, serving as a model for “idealists” to emulate and “realists” to reject ever since. …”

Doris Day 

“…Doris Mary Anne von Kappelhoff (born April 3, 1922),[1] known by her stage name Doris Day, is an American singer and actress.

Singing and dancing and playing both comedic and dramatic roles, she became one of America’s biggest box-office stars, making 39 movies before retiring from films in 1968. She has also recorded more than 650 songs. She is an Academy Award nominee, as well as a Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner. In 1989, Day received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures.

She is currently the top-ranking female box-office star of all time, ranked 6th in the top ten of mostly male stars (the only other female on the list is Shirley Temple).[2]

“…What Does Pump Priming Mean?

 
The action taken to stimulate an economy, usually during a recessionary period, through government spending, and interest rate and tax reductions. The term “pump priming” is derived from the operation of older pumps; a suction valve had to be primed with water so that the pump would function properly. As with these pumps, pump priming assumes that the economy must be primed to function properly once again. In this regard, government spending is assumed to stimulate private spending, which in turn should lead to economic expansion. …”

This bar chart is created using data published in the Monthly Treasury Statement, which is published by the U. S. Treasury Department. Your money is spent through U. S. Senate Appropriations Bills.

The “estimate bar” (in the “Debt Total” box) for the current Fiscal Year (FY), is generated by NDAC analysts from data published by the Congressional Budget Office and several other sources.

“Budget Deficit” vs. “National Debt”

Suppose you want to spend more money this month than your income. This situation is called a “budget deficit”. So you borrow (ie; use your credit card). The amount you borrowed (and now owe) is called your debt. You have to pay interest on your debt. If next month you don’t have enough money to cover your spending (another deficit), you must borrow some more, and you’ll still have to pay the interest on the loan. If you have a deficit every month, you keep borrowing and your debt grows. Soon the interest payment on your loan is bigger than any other item in your budget. Eventually, all you can do is pay the interest payment, and you don’t have any money left over for anything else. This situation is known as bankruptcy.

Each year since 1969, Congress has spent more money than its income. The Treasury Department has to borrow money to meet Congress’s appropriations.

We pay interest on that huge debt. And now the Treasury is having trouble finding lenders!

President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board

“…The President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board (PERAB) is a new panel of non-governmental experts from business, labor, academia and elsewhere that President of the United States Barack Obama created on February 6, 2009. The board will report regularly to Obama and his economic team on the current economic crisis and possible responses to it. Obama announced this new board on November 26, 2008, and also announced that it will be chaired by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker with campaign economic adviser Austan Goolsbee as staff director and chief economist. In March 2007, Goolsbee wrote a New York Times op-ed arguing that Congress should not tighten regulations to make subprime lending more difficult. Goolsby said that a mortgage market where “people’s decisions [are] unrestricted by the amount of money they have right now” is “more perfect, not more irresponsible.” [1] Notably, defaults in subprime mortgages helped trigger the global economic crisis of 2008.[citation needed]

The board follows the model of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB), which then-President Dwight Eisenhower established in 1956.[2] Like the PFIAB, the new advisory board is meant to pierce what Obama called the “insularity” of Washington decision-making processes. In announcing the new board, Obama commented that “The walls of the echo chamber can sometimes keep out fresh voices and new ways of thinking — and those who serve in Washington don’t always have a ground-level sense of which programs and policies are working.”

The PERAB is supposed to provide that ground-level sense, and Obama said that this mission will be reflected in the board’s diverse membership, which will be announced over the next few weeks.[3] Paul Krugman, a Nobel laureate in economics and a noted progressive columnist, has argued that, given the centrist makeup of Obama’s economic inner circle, the new board could be used to “give progressive economists a voice.” He mentioned James K. Galbraith, Larry Mishel of the Economic Policy Institute, Dean Baker, and Jared Bernstein as progressive economists who might be suitable for the board.[4] Bernstein, however, was subsequently named to a full-time administration position as chief economist and economic policy adviser to Vice President Joe Biden.[5]

According to an Obama transition press release, “The Board will be established initially for a two-year term, after which the President will make a determination on whether to continue its existence based on its continued necessity.”[6]

Austan Goolsbee, the board’s Chief Economist, made an appearance on The Daily Show with John Stewart on August 19, 2009 [7]

According to a March 25, 2009 press briefing by OMB Director Peter Orszag, the administration has charged PERAB with proposing approaches to three budget related tasks: simplifying taxation, closing tax loopholes and reducing tax evasion, and reducing corporate welfare.[8] …”

“…

The President and Mr. Volcker announced the board’s membership on February 6, 2009.[9] Members include:

  • Jeffrey Immelt, General Electric chief executive
  • James W. Owens, head of Caterpillar
  • Robert Wolf, chairman and CEO of UBS Group Americas
  • Mark Gallogly,[10][11] founder and managing partner at Centerbridge Partners L.P.[12][13]
  • Penny Pritzker, chair and founder of Pritzker Realty Group and Classic Residence by Hyatt
  • John Doerr, partner at Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers
  • Monica C. Lozano,[14][15] publisher and CEO of La Opinion
  • Charles E. Phillips, Jr., president of Oracle Corporation.
  • Richard L. Trumka, Member
  • Austan Goolsbee, PERAB Staff Director and Chief Economist
  • William H. Donaldson, former Securities and Exchange Commission chairman
  • Laura D’Andrea Tyson, Member
  • Martin Feldstein, former chief economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan,
  • Roger W. Ferguson, Jr., Member
  • David F. Swensen, CIO at Yale University[16]

Obama Creates Economic Advisory Board

President Obama’s Economic Recovery Board: First Meeting

Obama at Economy Recovery Presidental News Conference 03-24-09

“…Overview of the Electric Grid

Electric power is essential to modern society. Economic prosperity, national security, and public health and safety cannot be achieved without it. Communities that lack electric power, even for short periods, have trouble meeting basic needs for food, shelter, water, law, and order.

In 1940, 10% of energy consumption in America was used to produce electricity. In 1970, that fraction was 25%. Today it is 40%, showing electricity’s growing importance as a source of energy supply. Electricity has the unique ability to convey both energy and information, thus yielding an increasing array of products, services, and applications in factories, offices, homes, campuses, complexes, and communities.

The economic significance of electricity is staggering. It is one of the largest and most capital-intensive sectors of the economy. Total asset value is estimated to exceed $800 billion, with approximately 60% invested in power plants, 30% in distribution facilities, and 10% in transmission facilities.

Annual electric revenues – the Nation’s “electric bill” – are about $247 billion, paid by America’s 131 million electricity customers, which includes nearly every business and household. The average price paid is about 7 cents per kilowatt-hour, although prices vary from state to state depending on local regulations, generation costs, and customer mix.

There are more than 3,100 electric utilities:

213 stockholder-owned utilities provide power to about 73% of the customers
2,000 public utilities run by state and local government agencies provide power to about 15% of the customers
930 electric cooperatives provide power to about 12% of the customers
Additionally, there are nearly 2,100 non-utility power producers, including both independent power companies and customer-owned distributed energy facilities.

The bulk power system consists of three independent networks: Eastern Interconnection, Western Interconnection, and the Texas Interconnection. These networks incorporate international connections with Canada and Mexico. Overall reliability planning and coordination is provided by the North American Electric Reliability Council, a voluntary organization formed in 1968 in response to the Northeast blackout of 1965.

Electric Generation
America operates a fleet of about 10,000 power plants. The average thermal efficiency is around 33%. Efficiency has not changed much since 1960 because of slow turnover of the capital stock and the inherent inefficiency of central power generation that cannot recycle heat. Power plants are generally long-lived investments; the majority of the existing capacity is 30 or more years old.

The roughly 5,600 distributed energy facilities typically combine heat and power generation and achieve efficiencies of 65% to 90%. Distributed energy facilities accounted for about 6% of U.S. power capacity in 2001.

The profile of the electric power generation industry is changing rapidly, however. A shift in ownership is occurring from regulated utilities to competitive suppliers. The share of installed capacity provided by competitive suppliers has increased from about 10 percent in 1997 to about 35 percent today. Recent data suggest this trend is slowing.

Also, cleaner and more fuel-efficient power generation technologies are becoming available. These include combined cycle combustion turbines, wind energy systems, advanced nuclear power plant designs, clean coal power systems, and distributed energy technologies such as photovoltaics and combined heat and power systems.

Because of the expected near-term retirement of many aging plants in the existing fleet, growth of the information economy, economic growth, and the forecasted growth in electricity demand, America faces a significant need for new electric power generation. In this transition, local market conditions will dictate fuel and technology choices for investment decisions, capital markets will provide the financing, and Federal and state policies will affect siting and permitting. It is an enormous challenge that will require a large commitment of technological, financial, and human resources in the years ahead. …”

Obama Names Volcker to Head New Economic Advisory Board

By Michael A. Fletcher

 
“…President-elect Barack Obama today named former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker to head a new advisory panel designed to help guide the administration’s efforts to stabilize the nation’s struggling financial system and create millions of new jobs.
Speaking at his third news conference in three days, Obama said the new President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board will be tasked with bringing fresh thinking and “vigorous oversight” to the administration’s efforts to jumpstart and reshape the nation’s economy.

“The reality is that sometimes policymaking in Washington can become too insular,” Obama said. “The walls of the echo chamber can sometimes keep out fresh voices and new ways of thinking — and those who serve in Washington don’t always have a ground-level sense of which programs and policies are working for people, and which aren’t.”

Obama has said that soon after he takes office he wants to enact a massive economic recovery plan that will save or create 2.5 million jobs, through a combination of tax breaks for the middle class and a huge infusion of government spending on a wide range of infrastructure projects that he hopes will lay the foundation for future economic growth.
He said the new advisory board will help police that effort. The board will be headed by Volcker, 81, who was appointed chairman of the Federal Reserve by President Jimmy Carter and reappointed in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan. He served as one of Obama’s closest economic advisers during the presidential campaign. …”

Obamacare: Code Blue

By Michelle Malkin

Photoshop credit: Reader Dave

“…We need a Do Not Resuscitate order for the flailing Democrats’ health care takeover plan.

It’s Code Blue and Team Obama is in panic mode.

Certain sign of desperation: Summoning the nutroots to help.

And another from Mark Knoller, who reports that the White House has moved up Obama’s health care statement today to 12:15pm in the Rose Garden.

And now this from Reuters:

The House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee has canceled its Tuesday debate and vote on healthcare legislation but has kept a Wednesday meeting on its schedule.

Good. This will give Obama time to study the plan he supports — a plan that he admitted he’s not familiar with when asked about the provision that would effectively kill off the individual insurance market.

***

Philip Klein tosses the politics card back at the White House:

Obama’s health care push is hitting a rough patch because moderates in his own party are skittish about the price tag and tax increases. The Congressional Budget Office determined that none of the Democratic bills do anything to rein in costs — the primary rationale for his health care drive. And the Mayo Clinic, which Obama has routinely praised as a model for the health care system, has blasted the House legislation. Yet Obama wants to rush legislation through so he has a victory going into an election year.

In fact, as CNN reported, “The Senate Democratic leadership and the White House are putting heavy pressure on the Finance Committee to adopt its health care plan before the president speaks to the nation (on Wednesday).” So in other words, Obama is trying to pressure the Finance Committee not to write the best legislation its members can, not to reach a bipartisan compromise, but to pass whatever bill they can before he goes in front of the television cameras to give a prime-time news conference.

Yes, it is about him. …”

“…Even dumber than the time he claimed Caterpillar had promised to re-hire workers if the stimulus passed, only to have the CEO tell reporters about five minutes later that the stimulus wouldn’t work fast enough to let them re-hire workers.

And the Mayo shall lead us:

Although there are some positive provisions in the current House Tri-Committee bill – including insurance for all and payment reform demonstration projects – the proposed legislation misses the opportunity to help create higher-quality, more affordable health care for patients. In fact, it will do the opposite.

In general, the proposals under discussion are not patient focused or results oriented. Lawmakers have failed to use a fundamental lever – a change in Medicare payment policy – to help drive necessary improvements in American health care. Unless legislators create payment systems that pay for good patient results at reasonable costs, the promise of transformation in American health care will wither. The real losers will be the citizens of the United States. …”
