You think we won? Think the Conservatives made some real headway?

Think again.

More later.

UPDATE:

I know. I promised more later. I didn’t say how much later. ;-)

It’s time for a small break. Meanwhile, might I recommend some Michael Berry until 7pmCT and Mark Levin after that.

Here’s the streaming link. Houston Radio KTRH.

Right Change/Politizoid is out with their latest outstanding video.

Here’s the set up:

Based on Apple’s 1984 MAC commercial that marked a new era in computers, and based on the George Orwell book 1984, RightChange introduces our closing argument on the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress for the 2010 Midterm Cycle. This is also the Kick-off for the 2012 Presidential Cycle for RightChange. The New Politizoid “1984 – Big Brother” may be our best yet! “Vote Different.”

Cast: Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Maxine Waters, Moveon.org and Louis Farrakhan in their own words. Yes. These are their actual words.

For previous Right Change videos, a good start would be No Sheeples Here.

Here we go again.

That paragon of economic virtue, Teresa Ghilarducci has surfaced once more to expound the benefits of the government taking over seizing confiscating stealing your 401k “for your own good.” I wrote about this little banshee back in May, after O’biden made a slip of the tongue with regard to their plans for redistributing your retirement nest egg. Now, it appears she has been gaining ground with her arguments because, as Doug Ross points out, it’s not off the table. In fact, your 401k may be part of the main course for the upcoming lame duck session of Congress.

Doug writes:

…I am not a conspiracy theorist. But I can put two and two together. Earlier this evening Papa B pointed me to an oozing secretion from the Puffington Roast, which markets the idea that 401(k) retirement savings accounts are evil and should be abolished.

He goes on to detail Mzzz. Ghilarducci’s well laid plans to confiscate your dough.

Guilarducci and the Democrats are advocating legalized theft of the juicy trillions of dollars Americans have saved in their retirement plans. Nationalizing those accounts would support massive new spending programs plus payoff the unions and crony capitalists looking for more bailouts at the “workers'” expense.

Please do read the whole thing. Then listen to the interview she gave with Mark Levin in October of 2008. It’s linked in the Doug Ross article but just in case, here is the link again.

I also find it worth noting that:

Mz. Ghilarducci was named by US News and World report as the Most Dangerous Woman in America back in 2008. It appears they may have been on to something.

And, Mz. Ghilarducci “at times” has been a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, a fact noted in their National Political Committee meeting minutes of Sept. 28-29, 2009 as being considered for Vice Chair. – Thanks Wikipidia.

Keep your eyes peeled, folks. They’re not done by a long shot.

But neither are we.

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels, including the State Legislatures.

As noted in the previous post, 1000 Progressives in State Governments,

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the ‘fundamental transformation of America’

and as noted on the new Socia.list page, the members of the PSN Board of Directors include a bonafide “who’s-who” of Progressive/Socialist/Communist thought.

The Socia.list is depressingly long.

It shows just how much work we have to do to vote these people out and restore sanity to our Republic, but it can be done. Here’s how, as I see it:

1. Make note of who your representatives are along with their opponents.

2. Get that list to your TEA Party and Republican Party leaders for distribution.

3. Get out the vote!

4. Watch the Progressives lose office on Nov. 2.

5. Rest a bit.

6. Get back to work!

There are still some Progressives left, but we will have hopefully ousted enough to make the rest fear for their jobs. Go forth and strengthen the organizations you’ve joined and or started. Two years remain before we can truly turn the ship of state in the right direction, towards a restoration of our Founding Principles and a Constitutional Republic.

The new Socia.list page can be found at the top of the blog, just under the masthead and to the right of the Shoppe tab.

UPDATE: One-Thousand Progressives, according to the PSN Letter to Obama Supporting Obamacare.

Our American society has never seen the level of corruption in evidence today. It’s as if some mind controlling parasites have infested and infiltrated every nook and cranny of our system. The deeper you go down the proverbial rabbit hole, the more tentacles you find. Across borders, oceans and economic systems it reaches to control your every movement and very existence. As an example, if you were to expound and expand on Obama, Pelosi and Reid’s new healthcare plan, they would wish to grant or deny even your right to exist, as evidenced by our federal government’s obsession with killing babies. Do any of you trust your government to the point of giving them control, Chairman Mao like, over the number of children you can have? Rest assured that a government that funds elective abortions of its citizens would jump at the chance to dictate your ability to procreate at all. That type of tyranny is one that would grant such rights by your political party affiliation or what amount of tribute you bring to their throne.

If you believe, as I do, that the Progressive/Socialist/Communist agenda is at its heart, an evil one, then you must also conclude that this movement must be stopped.

Enter the Progressive States Network. Ever heard of them?

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the “fundamental transformation of America.”

I’ve seen what that transformation looks like and I don’t like it.

How does it work?

Their plan is to introduce Progressive/Socialist legislation at the State and local levels in order to gain a foothold on those issues at the national level both in the media and in the federal legislature. In the process, they are grooming candidates for national office.

A primer:

Getting To Know Your Michigan Candidates

The Progressive States Network: What you need to know

Progressive States Network – Immigration

Progressive States Network: Distorting the Electoral Process?

The Progressive States Network: Undermining Liberty one State at a Time

The Progressive States Network: Exploiting the Crisis that Progressives Caused?

Progressive States Network: National Popular Vote

Popular Vote: By the Numbers

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels.

Examples of the upwards activism the PSN pursues are their letters to Obama from our State legislators:

Supporting Federal Health Care Reform

State Legislators for Progressive Immigration Policy

Create Jobs, Give States Fiscal Relief

All three of these would sound innocuous to the normal Americans, but in reality, they are letters demanding that the Federal government become more involved in the States’ activities and our personal lives at a time when we need less Federal involvement in anything State or personal, with the exception of sealing the border.

From the “Jobs” letter:

…Accordingly, the federal government must take proactive steps to create jobs and enact further fiscal relief for state and local governments. This includes extending FMAP increases for Medicaid, providing additional support for education, boosting funding for infrastructure projects and public transportation investments, supporting the long-term unemployed to sustain them until they reenter the workforce, and providing direct financial assistance to state and local governments to perform the vital services needed to maintain growth in local communities across the nation…

Signing on to the “Jobs” letter from Texas are:

  • Rep. Garnet Coleman (TX-147) Co-chairman of the PSN Board of Directors. Garnet was quoted recently on the Marxist emag Political Affairs. Sadly, Rep. Coleman is unopposed.
  • Sen. Rodney Ellis (TX-13) Opponent:  Michael Mauldin
  • Rep. Jessica Farrar (TX-148) Opponent: Fernando Herrera
  • Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (TX-51) Opponent: Marilyn Jackson

Nowhere in that letter is any mention of tax cuts or pro-business incentives for job creation, unless you count their concern for the loss of jobs in government and social services.

Government has grown too large as it is! The people who would fight for more government and social programs over actual private enterprise and real economic growth must be ousted from office at every level of government, Federal, State and local. Failure to do so, is to leave a bit of cancer in the infected host.

Those wanting to increase government dependents have been drafting recruits while we worker bees have been busy paying for their campaign through taxes for years and recently, stimulus packages re-routed to ACORN type organizations. Obama type community organizers have been training Progressive recruits how to “help moderate members of Congress” by framing Progressive issues in “palatable” ways.

An example of from the Center for Progressive Leadership

Question: Why would I need to make an issue “palatable” if it will stand on its own merit?

Answer: Because it is a lie in need of sugar coating.

Progressives are Socialists are Communists and are by definition anti-American. It’s past time everyone was made aware of their existence and agenda.

I would encourage bloggers to research these letters and the people who signed them. Find their opponents and support them. Post them in lists by state on your blogs along with their opponents.

November is coming!

Socia.list

This weekend, I plan to create a new blog page similar to the Texas 11 that, beginning with Texas, will contain a list of the State Senators and Representatives who align themselves with the PSN, along with their opposing candidates if available.

The title of that page will be Socia.list.

Catchy, don’t you think?

If anyone would like to help with compiling that list, I wouldn’t argue.  Just send me a link or comment with your post’s url and after verifying, I’ll be happy to include it. BTW, Project Vote Smart is a valuable resource for finding that type of information.

UPDATE: My apologies to John Carey of  The Current for not giving him the proper credit for bringing this group to my attention.

Also, No Sheeples Here’s proprietor extraordinaire, Carol has created a video that echos the message in this post.

The new poll is up and running. I’m a bit late posting but better late than never right?

This week I’ve nominated Francisco Canseco (TX-23) who is running against one of the 11 Texans who voted for Obamacare, Ciro Rodriguez.

.

.

It appears that Rep. Rodriguez thinks you should listen to him when he lies to you, you little insolent woman!

I don’t believe any taxpayer should be treated in such a way. Even if they don’t believe a word you say.

Let’s support someone who has the right message of Constitutionally limited government.

Francisco Canseco:

Our federal government has become a power and money grabbing behemoth which places itself above our individual liberties and freedom.

America’s true strength comes from our rugged individualism, entrepreneurial spirit, faith in God, and family unity.

You can friend Francisco on Facebook too!

I’ve cast my vote. Now it’s your turn!

Mr. Canseco:

.

These are not mis-speaks. This is the thinking of the Obama regime.

I think this video should be viral. If you agree, then share it!

UPDATE: Beck produced this video in response to the smear tactics the left uses against Conservative candidates they are scared of such as Christine O’Donnell. They are using an off the cuff admission from Christine that she dabbled in witchcraft while a teenager in high school. Hmmm.

And now the Wiccans are getting their feelings hurt! How does that happen?

Wasn’t Mrs. Obummer introduced by a Wiccan at a fund raiser this weekend? Maybe O’Donnell should court the Wiccan vote a little more closely. ~ Nah.

Also, from the comments over at Riehl World View:

And don’t forget Obama’s first Social Secretary’s voodoo connection (which is probably how Obama got elected):

WSJ: “Desirée Glapion Rogers is the descendant of a Creole voodoo priestess named Marie Laveau Glapion…”
http://magazine.wsj.com/features/the-big-interview/desiree-rogers/

I’m never surprised by the depths the left will stoop to disparage an opponent. Never mind the fact that O’Donnell has since been led to Christ and is a devout Christian.

Oh. Wait. Never mind.

Also not to be missed, Carol over at No Sheeples Here has produced another outstanding piece of artistic snark you must see, so I liberated it from it’s digital bonds to decorate this wall.

I love it when someone points out the obvious. Especially when they do it in an entertaining way. And when they can thumb their nose at the government run media while doing it, hey, it’s a bonus! That’s why I’m glad to see that our resident cave-man blogger has decided to do just that with regard to what I like to call the other MSM, the Muslim Silent Majority. Well, to be truthful, I just thought of it, but it does fit the description, doesn’t it?

The question is, just where are the peace loving Muslims who oppose any violence in the name of Islam? The Troglopundit has a few well thought out suggestions for both MSM’s.

Here’s the thing: I think it really is a small minority of Muslims who want to strap explosives on and pull the cord in the middle of a crowd of soldiers (shoppers, diners, schoolchildren) for Allah. I think that small minority is giving the rest of Islam a bad rap.

I have no evidence to back me up. In fact, the very fact that the MSM isn’t pushing a “peaceful Muslims criticizing violent Muslims” storyline would seem to contradict me. If there were anything there – anything at all – the MSM would be all over it, if only to prove that Americans are jingoistic ignoramuses.

But. If I’m right, why the hell don’t all the other Muslims – the non-murderous types – stand up and tell their more violent brethren to sit down and shut up?

Hear! Hear!

I would love to see these people who proclaim peace begin pointing their fingers at the radicals causing all the intolerant trouble, but that’s the problem with tolerance, how far does one take it? If I am tolerant of ones misdeeds to the point of becoming an accomplice to illegal activity and violence, I become as guilty as if I had committed the act myself. In other words, if you look on and do nothing when you see evil being perpetrated, you have the onus of that evil upon you as much a the evil doer.

Someone who can rationalize that sort of turn-your-head attitude with regard to people of their own religion, but judge someone else by some supposed higher standard has twisted reason and justice to the point of being unrecognizable and deserves no tolerance at all in my book. Nor will they receive any from this robot.

I can barely write abut these issues without the veins in the side of my neck protruding in a throbbing fashion. Much to his credit, Lance takes a much calmer approach. I would encourage you to see for yourself.

From Right Klik:

Ten Buck Fridays is proud to announce that Stephen Broden is the winner of this week’s TBF poll. Broden demonstrates a profound understanding of the compelling issues that are at stake in the upcoming election.

Pastor Broden in 2009:

Mr. Broden’s donation page is here.

Please make a note of Ten Buck Fridays somewhere on the donation form.

The new TBF poll is up in the sidebar. I would encourage everyone to research and vote for their favorite candidate. I’ve already cast my vote for Stephen Broden who, as I pointed out in the previous post is running against Eddie Bernice Johnson in TX 30. Stephen Broden is running on a platform of strong Constitutional principles and understands where Obama and the Progressives/ Liberals in Congress would like to take the country.

Right Klik has posted a list of all of the candidates with corresponding links and info for your enjoyment and edification. Please choose your favorites and make donations to these worthy Conservatives.

Here is a portion of a campaign speech from Pastor Broden on our duty to the Republic as citizens.

I must say, I really like this guy.

in the Gulf of Mexico?

WARNING: Pure speculation ahead…

Problem: News outlets are reporting heavily on a bi-partisan letter from representatives Gene Green (D-TX) and Charles Boustany (R-LA) calling for an end to the defacto drilling moratoium in the gulf and co-signed by 37 Democrats & Republicans.

Solution: Blow up another oil rig.

Purely coincidental, I’m sure.

How long has it been since an accident on any oil rig large enough to make headlines? Besides the BP Deepwater Horizon, I can think of none in recent memory. Now we have two catastrophic explosions in the time-frame of a few months, one of which occurred one year after receiving a safety award from the Obama regime and being included in the top three for a Pollution Prevention Award from the Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service scheduled to be awarded a month or so after the explosion…

and the lords of irony smiled.

Is this the beginning of a new truther movement?

If it is true, all I can say is, thank God we have a man of action in the Oval Orifice who knows how to identify an enemy and take decisive action against it.

If only he could identify the right enemy.

then commences to whine about our supposed human rights violations, which, if there are any at all, are the direct result of progressive/socialist policies.

How UN-American.

If we are to take this one step further we could liken Obama’s lawsuit against Arizona and the subsequent report to the UN as a drug pusher who whines to his addicted flock about not being able to stop selling them dope, all the while enjoying the lavish perks of the income.

As Peter Wehner says in his article “How Obama Sees America”

It is also evidence of a particular cast of mind, one that is eager to undermine America’s moral standing in the world. That has been a consistent effort by the current administration. We have seen if from the president, who seems to take special delight in denigrating our country before the rest of the world, and those such as Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner, who went out of his way to assure us that in discussions with China about human rights, the Arizona law against illegal immigration was brought up “up early and often. It was mentioned in the first session, and as a troubling trend in our society and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or potential discrimination, and that these are issues very much being debated in our own society.”

If the apologist in chief were to enforce the laws on the books we would have far less of a problem to deal with. But we know that’s not about to happen.

As The Heritage Foundation points out, the Universal Periodic Review is nothing more than a ham-handed praise fest for all of the human rights abusers to pat themselves on the back, and by joining the farcical circle-jerk, Obama has given the United States her first day in the barrel.   ~ Umm, well, I was paraphrasing a bit there.

Again, how UN-American of you, Obummer.
