USA freedom, liberty under ASSAULT by O-care

"If government-mandated health insurance is upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court after the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) case is argued in March 2012, the Institute for Justice warns in its amicus brief that there will be dire and predictable threats to individual liberty and voluntary relations that have been the foundation of American contract law for centuries.

Constitutional law professor Elizabeth Price Foley, who is the executive director of the Institute's Florida Chapter and who co-authored IJ's brief, said, "The individual mandate violates a cardinal rule of contract law—to be enforceable, all agreements must be voluntary.

The Framers understood this, and would never have given the federal government the power to force individuals into lifelong contracts of insurance. The Court should not allow the government to exercise this unprecedented and dangerous power." As IJ's brief shows, the principle of mutual assent, under which both parties must consent for a contract to be valid, is a fundamental principle of contract law that was well understood during the Founding era and is still a cornerstone of contract law today. Indeed, contracts entered under duress have long been held to be invalid. Yet the mandate forces individuals to enter into contracts of insurance that would never be valid under this longstanding principle. (For a copy of IJ's brief, visit:

If the U.S. Supreme Court fails to strike down the individual mandate, there will be nothing to stop Congress from forcing people into other contracts against their will—employment contracts or union membership, for example.

If we still have a constitutional republic in which the federal government's powers are limited, then the Court should strike down this law. The Institute for Justice's brief is the only amicus brief filed with the Court that examines this case in the context of the history of contract law. The brief illustrates how the Supreme Court has recognized the principle of consent in commercial relations in its Commerce Clause and Tenth Amendment cases, and it explains why the U.S. Supreme Court has a key role in acting as a check against this unconstitutional power grab by the federal government.

Klavan on: How to Behave During an Islamic Massacre

from last year, but Klavan is still spot on:

Christian, Judeo writings and teachings somewhere along the line say if someone hits your arm, offer your other arm for them to hit that one...

How would that work exactly in Islam when you happen to be offended after they stone, kill, hang or behead you?

....uuuuuuh, yep

monarch metamorphosis

In our garden this past month we've watched NZ Monarch caterpillars fight for survival on the milk weed swan plant. A few became chrysalis and later emerged into beautiful butterflies. It is an amazing feat of nature.  The Monarchs in N. American migrate to Mexico in winter.  Did you know that?  Here in NZ, noone is quite sure where or if they swarm or migrate.  Here's a quick sped up vid I found of the metamorphorsis process... and some snaps from my garden...

Catholics need to fight to exit a 1930s Socialism bed

Da Vinci's last supper

Interesting article Rush Limbaugh mentions today over at Ricochet by Paul Rahe:  Mr. Rahe writes American Catholicm's pact with the Devil describing the downward spiral Catholic leadership has taken since the 1930's.

They got in bed with socialist doctrine and are definitely paying the price right now with Washington communists who expect them to kowtow to their rule. 

From Mr. Rahe:

"In the 1930s, the majority of the bishops, priests, and nuns sold their souls to the devil, and they did so with the best of intentions. In their concern for the suffering of those out of work and destitute, they wholeheartedly embraced the New Deal. They gloried in the fact that Franklin Delano Roosevelt made Frances Perkins – a devout Anglo-Catholic laywoman who belonged to the Episcopalian Church but retreated on occasion to a Catholic convent – Secretary of Labor and the first member of her sex to be awarded a cabinet post. And they welcomed Social Security – which was her handiwork. They did not stop to ponder whether public provision in this regard would subvert the moral principle that children are responsible for the well-being of their parents. They did not stop to consider whether this measure would reduce the incentives for procreation and nourish the temptation to think of sexual intercourse as an indoor sport. They did not stop to think.
In the process, the leaders of the American Catholic Church fell prey to a conceit that had long before ensnared a great many mainstream Protestants in the United States – the notion that public provision is somehow akin to charity – and so they fostered state paternalism and undermined what they professed to teach: that charity is an individual responsibility and that it is appropriate that the laity join together under the leadership of the Church to alleviate the suffering of the poor. In its place, they helped establish the Machiavellian principle that underpins modern liberalism – the notion that it is our Christian duty to confiscate other people’s money and redistribute it.

At every turn in American politics since that time, you will find the hierarchy assisting the Democratic Party and promoting the growth of the administrative entitlements state. At no point have its members evidenced any concern for sustaining limited government and protecting the rights of individuals. It did not cross the minds of these prelates that the liberty of conscience which they had grown to cherish is part of a larger package – that the paternalistic state, which recognizes no legitimate limits on its power and scope, that they had embraced would someday turn on the Church and seek to dictate whom it chose to teach its doctrines and how, more generally, it would conduct its affairs.

I would submit that the bishops, nuns, and priests now screaming bloody murder have gotten what they asked for. The weapon that Barack Obama has directed at the Church was fashioned to a considerable degree by Catholic churchmen. They welcomed Obamacare. They encouraged Senators and Congressmen who professed to be Catholics to vote for it."

Read the rest here... When you get in bed with the devil's minions of socialism-marxism- communism - seems like you just may get some unexpected outcomes.

Ann Barnhardt tells Roman Catholics bishops and priests to man up and FIGHT!  Ann says they cannot sit there and pray this away: "Action is the point of your existence and the point of your vocation.

The so-called Obama Compromise on contraception, sterilization, and abortifacient coverage is pure, dripping, sulfuric evil from the pit of hell. And anyone who can't see it is either a Marxist who is in league with the devil himself, or is stupid to the point of being unfit to walk the streets without direct supervision. Like I said, let the great and terrible sifting of men begin.

Obama said this morning that insurance coverage provided by religious institutions who object to BABY KILLING will simply call the BABY KILLING coverage "free", as in provided "gratis" by the insurance company itself, but still included in the coverage.


Nothing is free. The only people who think that there is "free" anything are slackjawed, mouth-breathing imbeciles and those who are in league with satan. An insurance policy that doesn't cover contraception, sterilization and abortifacients (with zero copay, too, don't forget) costs, let's say $200 per month. Add the BABY KILLING ASPECTS outlined above and the cost is, let's say, $220 per month. Obama is saying that the religious organizations will still pay the $220 but lie to themselves and to God and claim that the $220 doesn't cover BABY KILLING, the women will still get their BABY KILLING coverage with zero copay, and the insurance company will just say, "yeah, we threw that in for free".

HOW STUPID, HOW STUPID, HOW STUPID do you have to be to fall for this abject BULLSHIT?
So now, not only does Obama demand that the Church pay for BABY KILLING, but now Obama is saying that the Church has to break the Eighth Commandment by LYING to itself, to those it provides insurance for, to the citizens of the United States, to the entire world, and to God Himself and claim that they aren't REALLY providing BABY KILLING coverage.

Barack Obama and his regime are a collective anti-christ from the pit of hell itself. You priests and bishops need to wake the hell up and get this through your thick skulls.


You hoist the banner of Christ, fix your bayonet and charge that son of a bitch with every ounce of strength you have, and then you fight until either the enemy is totally defeated, or you are dead. That's your choice, gentlemen. That's your VOCATION. The war is begun. You either fight OR SHUT UP AND GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY, and then beg God to have mercy on your pathetic, faithless, cowardly ass whilst others take up your slack and die in your stead."

Palin at CPAC 2012

Another inspirational speech by Sarah at CPAC 2012.  Newt had a great speech as well.  Newt, Mitt and Rick speeches at Legal Insurrection.

Gateway Pundit points out a few highlights from Sarah's speech:

"Our movement is bigger than one person…bigger than one candidate…bigger than one party. It’s about one country united under one God. We’re red, white, and blue, and President Obama, we are through with you.
Obama is transforming a shining city on a hill into a sinking ship. He has piled on trillions more in debt and has no plan to stop it. No budget for over 1,000 days.
This government is not too big to fail. It’s too big to succeed.
She listed the failures of Obama’s spending spree:
  • 8 1/2% unemployment
  • 13 Million Americans who can’t find work
  • 46 Million living in poverty
  • Government dependency has gone up 23%
1st time in our history folks are fearing our future will be worse than our past
Obama thinks we’re headed in the right direction. 7 out of 10 Americans think we’re headed in the absolute wrong direction.
President wants to raise taxes so he can redistribute the wealth. We want to cut taxes so we can create more wealth.
We know what to do with that debt…cut it, gut it, get rid of it.
Obama says he has a jobs plan to win the future…WTF. Obama’s WTF Plan.
We have a better jobs plan. It’s called the free market.
Keep your change. We’ll keep our God, our guns, our Constitution.
We must replace Obama at the ballot box! When the ship is going down the last thing we need is a community organizer reorganizing the deck chairs while singing ‘Let’s Stay Together’. "

then they came for the Catholics

hattip: backyard conservative

I was raised Catholic.  It is a very nice religion full of loving people, moral teachings, honest people, kindness and forgiveness, helping each other, helping the poor, following the commandments, priests, nuns, schools, counseling for those in need... the whole kit and caboodle. 
Catholics do not believe in birth control or abortion. (the case against abortion) 

The White House is now at war with Catholics and wants them to put aside their long held strong beliefs because they (leftists) say so
America was formed because by people who wanted religious freedom!  Sen. Rand Paul points out "All Americans’ religious freedoms are protected by the First Amendment. The earliest colonists who came to this country in the pre–Revolutionary War days traveled here because they were seeking a home in which they could practice their religion in freedom and peace without government persecution. Religious freedom — which has been called “our first liberty” — is ingrained in the very fabric of our national culture.

But HHS and the administration have decided that their goal of state-run health care trumps our first liberty. What the president is attempting to do here is something generally witnessed only in totalitarian and authoritarian regimes."

Leftists continue their scourge of trying to transform America...

UK waking up: STOP wind farm madness!

cartoon from AT
The UK is waking up to the horrible madness of green energy scam: bird killing wind turbines:
Why the £250bn wind power industry could be the greatest scam of our age - and here are the three 'lies' that prove it: "Scarcely a day goes by without more evidence to show why the Government's obsession with wind turbines, now at the centre of our national energy policy, is one of the greatest political blunders of our time.  Under a target agreed with the EU, Britain is committed within ten years — at astronomic expense — to generating nearly a third of its electricity from renewable sources, mainly through building thousands more wind turbines. 

But the penny is finally dropping for almost everyone — except our politicians — that to rely on windmills to keep our lights on is a colossal and very dangerous act of self-deception.

Here in a nutshell are some of the reasons why people are beginning to wake up to the horrific downside of the wind business. And since I began writing about wind turbines nine years ago, I have come to see how the case for them rests on three great lies.

1) The first is the pretence that turbines are anything other than ludicrously inefficient

2) The second great lie about wind power is the pretence that it is not a preposterously expensive way to produce electricity. No one would dream of building wind turbines unless they were guaranteed a huge government subsidy.

3) The third great lie of the wind propagandists is that this industry is somehow making a vital contribution to 'saving the planet' by cutting our emissions of CO2. Even if you believe that curbing our use of fossil fuels could change the Earth's climate, the CO2 reduction achieved by wind turbines is so insignificant that one large windfarm saves considerably less in a year than is given off over the same period by a single jumbo jet flying daily between Britain and America."

(Irish) Engineers call for halt to wind farm investment:  "A new report from the Academy of Engineering will today call for a halt to investment in wind farms and power interconnections because of the huge cost it will place on industry.

It will state that Ireland already has the most expensive electricity in Europe and that this is causing a major problem for national competitiveness, putting Irish industry under severe pressure at the worst possible time."

Energy policy based on renewables will win hearts but won't protect their owners from frostbite and death due to exposure:   "Why does the entire green spectrum, which now incorporates most conventional parties across Europe, deny the most obvious of truths? To play lethal games with our energy systems in order to honour the whimsical god of climate change is as intelligent and scientific as the Aztec sacrifice of their young. Actually, it is far more frivolous, because at least the Aztecs knew how many people they were sacrificing: no one has the least idea of the loss of life that might result from the EU embracing "green" energy policies."

Whittle: American Exceptionalism

If a country with only 5% of the world's population: America - has the highest level of exceptionalism in military, economic, scientific and cultural areas - more than any other country in the world, WHY would you want to "fundamentally transform" America into anything other than the great country she already is?

... so, what have you done today to promote American exceptionalism? Go - do something...!

I'm liking Newt more and more

hattip: Reaganite Republican

What do you want or expect the 2013 potus to do first day in office?  I WANT THIS:

So, why does it matter? Because SAVING AMERICA is important! I love America and yes I've been angry, motivated to blog, speak up and generally "freaking out" ever since the illegal usurption of the people's White House - "they" gave the keys to a couple of communists!

This regime IS trying to "transform America" into WHAT?! From Jeff Lukens at American Thinker "No one ever thought one man could bring the nation to its knees, but here he is living in the White House. And on our knees we have been, praying for the day when he leaves.

The audacity of a president hell-bent on destroying our great nation has truly been a stunning spectacle to observe. No lie is too ridiculous to tell about anyone who opposes him. With a compliant media behind him, the smears this demagogue-in-chief promises to unleash on his opponent this fall could divide the county so badly that it becomes ungovernable.

The societal tensions Obama promised to ease have worsened by his politics of envy. The racial healing he promised has fallen flat, leaving only a worse divide. Despite overwhelming opposition, he forced a health plan on the people that few want. He has trampled on the Constitution and infringed on powers granted to Congress. He has bailed out auto companies, investment bankers, and insurance companies. He has given constitutional rights to terrorists.

Obama's greatest transgression, however, has been the explosion of government spending to the point where we are enslaved to a mountain of debt that can never be repaid. He has given us $1.6-trillion deficits and will have added more than $6 trillion to the debt by the end of his term. He has raised the percentage of GDP consumed by government to 25 percent. And all his spending has stimulated nothing."

EVERY center/right/moderate/independent American needs to be INVOLVED in the 2012 elections - to elect conservatives into ALL government seats of power. This election IS a crossroads for us.

GEAR UP ya'll!

HOW exactly is the USA economy "improving"?!

 From Director Blue:

"Dear pro journalists: if the economy is improving...

...then perhaps you could explain:
  •  If the economy is getting better, then why did new home sales in the United States hit a brand new all-time record low during 2011?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why are there 6 million less jobs in America today than there were before the recession started?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why is the average duration of unemployment in this country close to an all-time record high?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of homeless female veterans more than doubled?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of Americans on food stamps increased by 3 million since this time last year and by more than 14 million since Barack Obama entered the White House?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of children living in poverty in America risen for four years in a row?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why is the percentage of Americans living in "extreme poverty" at an all-time high?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why is the Federal Housing Administration on the verge of a financial collapse?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why do only 23 percent of American companies plan to hire more employees in 2012?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of self-employed Americans fallen by more than 2 million since 2006?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why did an all-time record low percentage of U.S. teens have a job last summer?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why does median household income keep declining? Overall, median household income in the United States has declined by a total of 6.8% since December 2007 once you account for inflation.
  • If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of Americans living below the poverty line increased by 10 million since 2006?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why is the average age of a vehicle in America now sitting at an all-time high?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why are 18 percent of all homes in the state of Florida currently sitting vacant?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why are 19 percent of all American men between the ages of 25 and 34 living with their parents?
  • If the economy is getting better, then why does the number of "long-term unemployed workers" stay so high? When Barack Obama first took office, the number of "long-term unemployed workers" in the United States was approximately 2.6 million. Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million."

Yes, please explain to the rest of us how your Oregime-ists implementing marxism, collectivism, communism, shite-ism policies benefit America and "improve" the economy!

Guess what, HISTORY proves us RIGHT and you WRONG.

Just say No to Mittens

I am taking a firm ANTI Mittens Romney position. Below video from Not Mitt Romney:

George Soros promotes Romney!  From the not mitt site, what would happen if mittens in the nominee:

"The (Republican) Party will be split at the seems, turning county chairs against conservative commentators–standing in the way of a united right-of-center and independent front dedicated to tackling the big issues of our day.

We need an aware White House, but not a poll-driven, focus group tested one. We need leadership and the American people are starved for the truth.

President Romney could mean a weaker brand for the Republican Party, an angry tea party movement, and that our country won’t take the steps this unique point in history has offered us."

Will Barry be put on 2012 potus ballot in Georgia?

We DON'T KNOW YET!  Obamster 'n' crew were no shows recently in Georgia in a court were their presence was required by a judge.  Well, come on, Oblabla is ABOVE the law don't you know, he is supreme ruler!  He and his minions scoff at the legal state courts who demand they participate. 

Other states besides Georgia (like Florida and even Illinois!) are trying to find out through the courts if TheWon can legally appear on their states ballot for 2012.  The judge in Georgia has not made a ruling yet, but the eventual ruling will be sent to the Georgia secretary of state who, I believe, will then decide if Barry meets the Georgia requirements to be on the ballot. 

Stay tuned for news out of Georgia the media is trying very hard to ignore!

Who is The Establishment?

WE.THE.PEOPLE do NOT want Mittens Establishment Romney for POTUS!!!

Ann Coultergeist, Karl "establishment" Rove and other "establishment" Republicans who have swarmed in their concerted attacks against Newt Gingrich.  They are part of the establishment who are all in for Mittens Romney.  God Help America...

But who exactly ARE these "establishment" types?  People who WANT big government - their treasury trough - kept in place.  They don't want the boat rocked, they want the coffers of tax payer money for themselves! 

Disclaimer:  I'm NO fan of Ron Paul at all, but this 13-Jan-2012 vid explains who is The Establishment very well from Judge Napolitano on Fox:

Climate alarmism: cold or hot = same solution?

Zombie at PJMedia  asks "The Coming of the New Ice Age: End of the Global Warming Era?" and has "just finished reading a terrifying new book about climate change. (Zombie) learned:

• Climate change is happening faster than we realize and it will have catastrophic consequences for mankind.
• There’s very little we can do to stop it at this late stage, but we might be able to save ourselves if we immediately take these necessary and drastic steps:

- Increase our reliance on alternative energy sources and stop using so much oil and other carbon-based fuels;
- Adopt energy-efficient practices in all aspects of our lives, however inconvenient;
- Impose punitive taxes on inefficient or polluting activities to discourage them;
- Funnel large sums of money from developed nations like the U.S. to Third World nations;
- In general embrace all environmental causes.

You of course recognize these as the solutions most often recommended to ameliorate the looming crisis of Global Warming. But there’s a little glitch in my narrative. Because although the book I read was indeed about climate change, it wasn’t about Global Warming at all; it was instead about “The Coming of the New Ice Age,” and it isn’t exactly “new” — it was published in 1977.

The Solution Remains the Same

As many other pundits and analysts have pointed out, in the mid-to-late 1970s we endured a massive “climate change scare” that was the exact opposite of the one we’re enduring now. Back then, the media and activists trumpeted the arrival of a new ice age, with the specter of ice sheets and glaciers covering half the northern hemisphere, and brutal winters in the remaining ice-free zones.

The fact that the media and popular culture and academia have veered from one panic-inducing disaster scenario to another one which completely contradicts the first one is funny enough in its own right. But reading The Weather Conspiracy: The Coming of the New Ice Age opened my eyes to an even more significant aspect of this serial crisis-mongering:

The “solutions” prescribed to solve both Global Warming and the looming Ice Age are exactly the same."

Good points Zombie... funny that...

support Big John Smith for Congress in Tennessee

hattip: Ann Barnhardt

Hey Tennessee, support conservative candidate Big John Smith for Congress!  America needs many more citizens to get involved with restoring the Republic.  John Smith believes:

"With the collapse of our monetary system, our cities, states and people are in peril because of ever mounting deficits, and unemployment. To make matters even worse, we have enemies on the outside and inside of our boarders wanting our demise; no longer, can we enjoy the sense normalcy, because our national security is in peril. My friends, Sooner or later, we’re going to have to accept our responsibility as the heirs to our republic, and act! We have to acknowledge, we must make the tough choices to save our nation. We cannot continue to elect men and women who yield to their personal ambitions and philosophies or display a condescending attitude towards the electorate, while governing. This is not acceptable; especially to those who have lost everything and to others who are wondering, what the hell has happened to the country they knew! Some leaders would have you think all is well; but they are not truthful. Continue to watch the cost of living as a gauge, this will tell the story. If you can look through partisanship, the well being of our nation goes beyond party lines. I am a person who knows his actions or inactions would be accountable to one higher than his self and to the people that elected him. "I'm not going to tell you what you want to hear, I'm going to tell you the truth." With God’s help, I want to help restore our land. If you are searching for these qualities in a candidate, who truly cares for his nation, then I am your man! Thank you and God bless you!"

Read up on his beliefs and support him here.
