A Most Needed Voice: Allen West

At a recent debate, Allen West sparred with Ron Klein over terror and national security. Klein's comments were dangerously ignorant.

West stressed the need to be on the lookout for problems in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries. He recognizes that we cannot rely on forced alliances to protect American security. By contrast, Congressman Klein showed his ignorance and his adherence to conventional wisdom as a substitute for terror policy, callously stating that "Iran is the enemy" and that we must bolster the Afghani, Pakistani and other armies. To be sure, the Iranian regime is a huge enemy of the West and even of Saudi Arabia, but focusing on them alone is wrong and dangerous.


In truth, Iran has the largest number of pro-Western citizens of any country in the Middle East, outside of Israel. There is hope for regime change, as long as we can stop radicals like Mousavi from hijacking those reform movements. And of course we need to deal with the current threat and the current regime. But that doesn't mean that we should turn a blind eye on the Taliban and al-Qaeda, as Ron Klein wants us to.


To eradicate terror, we need to show common sense and firm resolve on the international front, as well as introduce domestic policy to end terror recruitment in prisons by sentencing non-violent offenders to work details or military service instead of long prison sentences where large numbers are recruited every year.

There is no simple solution and only a multi-pronged change to domestic policy, coupled with foreign vigilance, will see the terror threat erased. But Ron Klein's position is shockingly ignorant and dangerous to America's security. By contrast, Allen West's is a tremendous step in the right direction.

Congressman Ron Klein has failed to do anything in his four years in Congress and is dangerously naïve on the international front. Colonel Allen West understands global politics and what is needed internationally. It's time to give him an opportunity to lend his voice to solving our most glaring global problem.

On Nov. 2, vote Allen West. The future of America relies on common sense solutions.

AMERICAN HERO

Mastadon Army Video: In a country, headed toward socialism, where the elitist few ran the government and did not govern for the people, but against them...

In a climate of arrogant words, never before seen flippant attitudes, photo ops, fake news stories, and continued out of control rhetoric...

In a time of rising debt, broken promises, increased taxes, out of control government spending, corporate takeovers and corrupt special interests ...

In a world where evil nations are developing nuclear weapons and where Obama pairs down the United State's arsenal leaving us more and more defenseless....

Now, more than ever, America needs a hero - one who has the power to change the political landscape. That hero, that voice... is You. . . . [Full Script]

RNC Chairman Steele On President Clinton Asking Kendrick Meek To Drop Out Of The Florida Senate Race

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement today:
“If we have learned anything this election cycle, it’s that voters demand the right to choose candidates for themselves, not by a political establishment seeking to make those decisions from on high. President Clinton’s actions to have Kendrick Meek withdraw from the campaign sends a chilling signal to all voters, but especially African Americans. One can only imagine the response if Republican leadership tried to force out of the race – in the 11th hour – a qualified black candidate like Kendrick Meek.”

Alex Sink: Allen West 2010, Ron Klein 2012?

Yomin Postelnik, Chairman, A Better Florida PAC: This term will see redistricting, a once in a decade process by which all congressional, state level and regional seats are redrawn. We need to work hard to elect a Republican governor, unless we want to cede as many as 6 congressional seats to the Dems.

As of this email, we may be well on track to seeing Allen West elected to Congress in South Florida. Alan Grayson appears to be going down to defeat.

But elect Alex Sink as governor and Alan Grayson, Ron Klein, Suzanne Kosmas and Alan Boyd may well be back in two years, not to mention the future of the two new seats being gained by Florida in the process.

The Governor has veto power over any redistricting plan. A Republican governor helps ensure that these seats stay Republican. A Democrat governor would demand compromise from the Florida House and it’s doubtful that Tallahassee leadership would hold the line in great enough numbers and have the media savvy to win that battle.

That’s why electing Rick Scott is absolutely crucial to the Republican effort and why his race is the most important one in this election cycle.

Daniel Webster (FL-08) - More Numbers

TPMDC: A new Susquehanna (R)/Sunshine State News poll of Florida's 8th District shows fiery liberal Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson trailing his Republican opponent, former state Sen. Dan Webster. The numbers: Webster 43%, Grayson 36%, plus 6% for Tea Party candidate Peg Dunmire and independent George Metcalfe. The survey of likely voters has a ±4.14% margin of error. There is no previous poll of this race by this firm for direct comparison The pollster's analysis finds that Grayson's unfavorable rating is at 51%: "He's even more unpopular than the president, which is not surprising given how controversial he has been with his rhetoric, overall style and TV ads."

Daniel Webster - Fixing Washington Together [Video]

In contrast to the negative ads aired by his opponent, Alan Grayson, Webster continues to address the important issues that are affecting our everyday lives.

Here are the numbers:
$787 billion spent under "Pelosi's House" promising to create jobs
2.6 million jobs that have been lost under the current administration
$4.3 Million stimulus dollars sent to criminals

Don't Ask Don't Tell Verses Do Tell

U.S. wins bid to delay 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' rulingThe Obama administration won a bid to delay enforcement of a federal judge’s order overturning the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that bars gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco today said it temporarily postponed the ruling “to provide this court with an opportunity to consider fully the issues presented.”

The government asked the court to take action today to postpone the ruling after the lower-court judge who issued it last month refused the administration’s emergency request yesterday to delay enforcement.

U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips in Riverside, California, ruled Sept. 9 that the policy violates constitutionally protected due process and free speech rights.

President Barack Obama supports repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the government said in court filings. Still, terminating the rule should take place only after advance planning and training, the government said. The Defense Department’s findings on how the ban should be ended are scheduled to be completed Dec. 1.

Phillips’s order “risks causing significant immediate harm to the military and its efforts to be prepared to implement an orderly repeal of the statute,” the U.S. said in the filing with the appeals court. . . . [Full Story]
H/T ARRA News Service
Troops discharged for being gay try to re-enlist
At least three service members discharged for being gay have begun the process to re-enlist after the Pentagon directed the military to accept openly gay recruits for the first time in the nation's history.

The top-level guidance issued to recruiting commands Tuesday marked a significant change in an institution long resistant and sometimes hostile to gays. . . .  The movement to overturn the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy gained speed when President Barack Obama campaigned on its repeal. The effort stalled in Congress this fall and found new life last month when a federal judge in California declared it unconstitutional.

The recruiting announcement came even as the Justice Department battles in the courts to slow the movement to abolish the 1993 Clinton-era policy. . . .

[DOD] has said it would comply with Phillips' order and had frozen any discharge cases. Pentagon spokeswoman Cynthia Smith said Tuesday recruiters had been given top-level guidance to accept applicants who say they are gay. . . .

Recruiters also have been told to inform potential recruits that the moratorium on enforcement of the policy could be reversed at any time, if the ruling is appealed or the court grants a stay, she said.  Gay rights groups were continuing to tell service members to avoid revealing that they are gay, fearing they could find themselves in trouble should the law be reinstated. . . .

ObamaCare News In Review: More Turbulence for Businesses

[] As ObamaCare Prepares For Take-off, Boeing And Other Businesses Strap In For A Bumpy Ride
BOEING WORKERS ARE THE LATEST HURT BY OBAMACARE

Boeing Will Require 90,000 Nonunion Employees To Contribute "Significantly" More To Their Health Care Plans In Part Due To ObamaCare. "Aerospace giant Boeing is joining the list of companies that say the new health care law could have a potential downside for their workers.  In a letter mailed to employees late last week, the company cited the overhaul as part of the reason it is asking some 90,000 nonunion workers to pay significantly more for their health plan next year. A copy of the letter was obtained Monday by The Associated Press." (Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, "Citing Health Care Law, Boeing Pares Employee Plan," The AP, 10/18/10)
  • Boeing Vice President For Human Resources Says ObamaCare Is "Adding Cost Pressure As Requirements Of The New Law Are Phased In." "'The newly enacted health care reform legislation, while intended to expand access to care for millions of uninsured Americans, is also adding cost pressure as requirements of the new law are phased in over the next several years,' wrote Rick Stephens, Boeing's senior vice president for human resources." Ibid
  • Boeing Is Worried About A 40 Percent Tax On "Cadillac" Health Care Plans. "Spokeswoman Karen Forte said the Boeing plan is more generous than what its closest competitors offer, and the company was concerned it would get hit with a new tax under the law. The tax on so-called 'Cadillac' health plans doesn't take effect until 2018, but employers are already beginning to assess their exposure because it is hefty: at 40 percent of the value above $10,200 for individual coverage and $27,500 for a family plan." Ibid
OBAMACARE'S OTHER CASUALTIES
"3M Co. On Friday Informed Retirees And Workers It Will Stop Offering A Group Health-Insurance Plan To Retirees Not Old Enough For Medicare By 2015, Citing The Federal Health Overhaul As A Factor." (Janet Adamy, "3M To Change Health-Plan Options For Workers," The Wall Street Journal, 10/4/10)
  • 3M Will Change The Plans Of Retirees Who Are Too Young To Qualify For Medicare And Those That Qualify For Medicare. "The St. Paul, Minn., manufacturing conglomerate notified employees on Friday that it would change retiree benefits both for those who are too young to qualify for Medicare and for those who qualify for the Medicare program. Both groups will get an unspecified health reimbursement instead of having access to a company-sponsored health plan." Ibid
  • "'In Addition, Health Care Reform Has Made It More Difficult For Employers Like 3M To Provide A Plan That Will Remain Competitive,' The Memo Said." Ibid
Caterpillar Inc. Said Obama's Health Care Bill Would Increase Their Costs By $100 Million In First Year, "Place [Them] At A Disadvantage Versus [Their] Global Competitors." "Caterpillar Inc. said the health-care overhaul legislation being considered by the U.S. House would increase the company's health-care costs by more than $100 million in the first year alone. ... 'We can ill-afford cost increases that place us at a disadvantage versus our global competitors,' said the letter signed by Gregory Folley, vice president and chief human resources officer of Caterpillar. 'We are disappointed that efforts at reform have not addressed the cost concerns we've raised throughout the year.'" ("Caterpillar: Health Care Bill Would Cost It $100M," Dow Jones Newswires, 3/19/10)

White Castle Predicts ObamaCare Will Consume More Than Half Its Profits. "The White Castle hamburger chain fears that a health insurance reform law adopted earlier this year will put its profits on a downward slide. The Columbus-based family owned restaurant chain - known for serving small square hamburgers called 'sliders' - says a single provision in the bill will eat up roughly 55 percent of its yearly net income after 2014." (Sabrina Eaton, "Ohio Hamburger Chain Says Insurance Reform Will Bite Into Profits," The Cleveland Plain Dealer, 7/4/2010)
  • ObamaCare Will Make It Hard For White Castle To Maintain Current Jobs, "Let Alone Create New Jobs." "The financial hit will make it hard for the company to maintain its 421 restaurants, let alone create new jobs, says company spokesman Jamie Richardson. White Castle employs more than 10,000 people nationwide, and more than 1,200 in Ohio." Ibid
"A New Study By Accounting Firm PricewaterhouseCoopers Found That Nearly Half (47 Percent) Of Executives Surveyed Expect The New Healthcare Law To Have A 'Notable Financial Impact On Their Businesses.'" (Jay Heflin, "Study: Healthcare Reform A Financial Hit To Firms," The Hill's "On The Money" Blog, 10/14/10)

Businesses Are Trying To Adjust To ObamaCare And The Tax Hikes Contained In ObamaCare. "One issue troubling executives is adjusting to reform while trying to accommodate for the coming tax hikes included in the new law. 'It's possible this could create a cash flow issue as CEOs look to continue reinvesting in their business,' said Ken Esch, a partner in the firm's Private Company Services practice, in prepared remarks." Ibid

A Majority Of Employers Are "Likely To Change Employee Contributions For Medical Coverage." "Over half of the respondents (52 percent) are likely to significantly change employee contributions for medical coverage. Of the 11 percent of respondents whose healthcare plans cover retirees, 46 percent are likely to significantly change their current retiree plans because of healthcare reform." "Ibid

"'The Potential Business Impact Of Health Reform Is Just One Among A Host Of Issues, Regulatory, Legislative, Economic, That's Creating Uncertainty For CEO's Right Now,' Esch Said." Ibid

Employers Are Dragging Their Feet When It Comes To Hiring Citing Uncertainty Surrounding Taxes And Regulation. "Increasingly, though, economists and job seekers are identifying another problem: Employers are being pickier, or not trying as hard as they usually do to fill the openings they have. The reasons for the foot-dragging are closely related to the reasons employers aren't creating many openings in the first place. Companies lack confidence about the outlook for consumer demand, they're not sure what the government will do with taxes and regulation, and they want to keep squeezing as much output from their current workers as they can." (Mark Whitehouse, "Unfilled Openings Frustrate The Jobless," The Wall Street Journal, 10/11/10)
  • Delay In Hiring Could Last For Another Year. "'What we're seeing is delay' says Jeff Joerres, chief executive of staffing firm Manpower Inc., noting that clients are taking a lot longer to fill positions, even when they've been presented with the right candidate. He says he expects the problem to persist at least through next year." Ibid
AMERICANS REJECT OBAMACARE
Almost Half Of Likely Voters Have An Unfavorable View Of ObamaCare. "Public support for healthcare reform ticked downward in October, suffering from an especially negative opinion among likely voters. Almost half of likely voters in next month's elections said they have an unfavorable view of Democrats' signature legislation -- a more negative take on healthcare reform than the general public. Forty-nine percent of likely voters said they have an unfavorable opinion of the healthcare bill, according to the Kaiser Health Tracking Poll, compared to 39 percent who have a favorable opinion. Twelve percent of likely voters said they have no opinion." (Michael O'Brien, "Almost Half Of Likely Voters View HealthCare Reform Unfavorably," The Hill, 10/18/10)

"An Earlier Poll By The Hill Also Pointed To Problems For Democrats With Healthcare. In The Hill Poll Of 12 Battleground Districts Won By Freshman House Democrats In 2008, A Majority Of Those Surveyed Favored Repeal. Even 23 Percent Of Democrats Polled In The Dozen Districts Favored Repeal." Ibid

Sixty-Two Percent Of Voters Think That The Tax On "Cadillac" Health Care Plans Should Be Repealed. "Another poll, conducted earlier this month by Bloomberg News, found that some of the most central pieces of the legislation fare poorly with the public. Sixty-two percent of voters said in that poll that the tax on high-value insurance plans (the so-called 'Cadillac tax') should be repealed, and 51 percent favored repeal of the requirement that each individual have health insurance." Ibid

Missouri Voters Overwhelmingly Passed A Ballot Initiative That Exempts The State From The Unpopular Measures Of ObamaCare. "Missouri voters approved the initiative with just over 71 percent in favor of the ballot language, which looks to exempt residents from the new rules requiring individuals to have health insurance, and also businesses, which have to provide health insurance options to employees or face stiff penalties."(Michael O' Brian, "Top Republicans Trumpet Missouri Ballot Initiative On Health Reform," The Hill's "Healthwatch" Blog ,
8/4/10)
  • The Passage Of Proposition C Is "The First Tangible Demonstration Of How Unpopular The President's Signature Achievement" Is In Missouri. "The overwhelming vote in favor of Proposition C, a measure crafted to reject a portion of the law that requires most people to carry health insurance by 2014 or pay a fine, is the first tangible demonstration of how unpopular the president's signature achievement remains in the Midwestern state." (David Catanese, "Proposition C Spells Trouble For Robin Caranhan," Politico, 8/6/10)
  • "Equally Worrisome Is The Fact That In Some Traditionally Democratic Counties, Like Jefferson County, Which Is Part Of Democratic Rep. Russ Carnahan's Southside St. Louis District, The Initiative Passed With Over 70 Percent." Ibid

Barack Obama's Health Care Myths Are Busted!

ARRA News Service - According to Politico’s Playbook today, “President Obama has taped an appearance for Discovery Channel's ‘MythBusters’.” Certainly, it’s nice for the President to show support for the science-focused education and entertainment that the show is known for, but it often feels like President Obama needs to be examined by a political version of such a show. Obama’s various declarations about the health care bill alone seem to have all been “busted” in the nearly seven months since the bill passed.

During the debate over Democrats’ health care bill, President Obama said that their “reforms” will “finally reduce the costs of health care” and “families will save on their premiums.” But throughout just the past month, multiple news reports have shown massive rate increases coming down the pike for many Americans, thanks in part to the health care bill. Early in September, The Wall Street Journal reported, “Health insurers say they plan to raise premiums for some Americans as a direct result of the health overhaul in coming weeks, complicating Democrats' efforts to trumpet their signature achievement before the midterm elections.” And sure enough, in subsequent weeks there were reports of insurers raising premiums in states like California, Connecticut, New York, and Washington. As The Seattle Times put it, “Whopping rate increases are coming soon for many people with individual health-insurance policies.”

Another declaration by the President was that his health care plan “will slow the growth of health care costs for our families, our businesses, and our government.” But according to a report from the Los Angeles Times on a study by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, “Pushed by a dramatic increase in the number of Americans who will get insurance under the new healthcare law, total U.S. medical spending will continue to gallop upward, consuming nearly 20% of the economy by 2019 . . . .” And earlier this year, Congressional Budget Office director Doug Elmendorf wrote, “[F]ederal spending on major mandatory health care programs will grow from roughly 5 percent of GDP today to about 10 percent in 2035 and will continue to increase thereafter.”

President Obama also promised that he would “protect Medicare” in his health care bill. Yet the bill contained over $520 billion in cuts to Medicare, with more than $200 billion in Medicare Advantage cuts alone. And sure enough, thanks to these cuts and changes, The Boston Globe reported, “Harvard Pilgrim Health Care has notified customers that it will drop its Medicare Advantage health insurance program at the end of the year, forcing 22,000 senior citizens in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine to seek alternative supplemental coverage.” According to The Globe report, “‘We became concerned by the long-term viability of Medicare Advantage programs in general,’’ said Lynn Bowman, vice president of customer service at Harvard Pilgrim’s office in Quincy. ‘We know that cuts in Medicare are being used to fund national health care reform.’” And then there was The Wall Street Journal story in June warning. “Dozens of Medicare Advantage providers plan to cut back vision, dental and prescription benefits.”

Of course, the most prominent pledge to Americans from Obama and other Democrats about their massive health care takeover was that “if you like your current [health care] plan, you will be able to keep it.” But in the months since Democrats rammed through their bill, numerous reports have shown many people won’t be able to continue on their current plans. Just two weeks ago, The Wall Street Journal reported, “3M Co. confirmed it would eventually stop offering its health-insurance plan to retirees, citing the federal health overhaul as a factor.” And The New York Times reported earlier this month, “The Principal Financial Group announced on Thursday that it planned to stop selling health insurance, another sign of upheaval emerging among insurers as the new federal health law starts to take effect. The company, based in Iowa, provides coverage to about 840,000 people who receive their insurance through an employer.” And then there was the AP story in August that “A plan by Medicare to try to make it simpler for consumers to pick drug coverage could force 3 million seniors to switch plans next year whether they like it or not, says an independent analysis.” And in July, there were reports that restaurant employees could lose health care coverage because of new costs imposed by the bill.

The assurances from President Obama and Democrats that their health care law would reduce premiums, lower government spending, protect Medicare, and allow Americans to keep their current plans, have all been clearly “busted.” Sadly, Americans could see most of this coming, and polls showed they consistently disapproved of Democrats’ scheme. Yet the President and Democrats forced the bill through Congress anyway.

Still, though, Americans oppose this law. Almost seven months after Democrats gathered to congratulate each other for passing a bill only they wanted, Politico reports, “According to the Kaiser Family Foundation October Tracking Poll out Monday morning, overall support for the [health care] law has dropped to 42 percent – down seven points in a month. The percentage of those saying they have an unfavorable view of the bill rose four points to 44 percent.” Interestingly, Politico notes, “Opposition to the reform bill was stronger among likely voters: 39 percent have favorable opinions, 49 percent unfavorable opinions and 12 percent have no opinion.” Incidentally, the Kaiser poll has been the one poll consistently showing more favorable views of the health care bill among the public than other polls.

Seven months later, Democrats’ claims about their health care law have been “busted,” and Americans still oppose the bill. It still needs to be repealed and replaced. Mr. Obama, Your Myths are Busted.

Rasmussen: GOP Will Gain 55 Seats in U.S. House

by John Gizzi, Human Events: Nationally-recognized pollster Scott Rasmussen . . . predicted that Republicans would gain 55 seats in races for the U.S. House of Representatives November 2nd —m uch more than the 39 needed for a Republican majority in the House for the first time since 2006.

But the man whose Rasmussen Reports polling is watched carefully by politicians and frequently quoted by the punditocracy said that whether Republicans gain the ten seats they need to take control of the Senate is in question.

“Republicans should have 48 seats [after the elections next month], Democrats 47, and five seats could slide either way,” said Rasmussen in his banquet address at the Western Conservative Political Action Conference. He was referring to seats in five states in which the Senate race this year he considers too close to call: California, Illinois, Washington, West Virginia, and Nevada (or “that mudwrestling contest,” as Rasmussen described the race between Republican Sharron Angle and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid). . . .

"I Want Your Money" in Theaters On October 15

Bill Smith, Editor, ARRA News Service: A Movie You CAN'T Afford to Miss. This Friday October 15, I WANT YOUR MONEY – the highly anticipated, hilarious Obama exposé that everyone is talking about - will open in movie theaters nationwide.

If you’re tired of Obama’s big-government-tax-and-spend policies, YOU WILL LOVE THIS MOVIE! I WANT YOUR MONEY is a controversial new film about the competing economic visions championed by Presidents Reagan and Obama – a duel of speeches, wit, animation and narrative that leaves audiences laughing, cheering, yelling . . . and engages them in the national conversation about the mounting national debt, and why it matters. After all, IT’S YOUR MONEY THEY ARE SPENDING.

I screened this movie and then participated in two advanced showings of the film to two very different audiences. One in Washington, D.C and one in the Arkansas Ozark Mountains. The movie resonated with both audiences and it will resonate with a majority of people except for liberal elites. Although a documentary, the movie is interspersed with animated cartoons which allows the viewer time to absorb the material and to have a laugh while points are illustrated. Without these cartoons the movie would indeed be shorter, peoples blood pressure would be elevated, and their minds would have been overtaxed with the reality of the present situation.

There is also hope in this movie as the truth is shared about socialism which is destructive to individual freedoms and the well being of people. The words of Ronald Reagan share how capitalism, individual freedom and choice raises the economic well being of all people at all income levels. Audiences will find finds themselves cheering at the end movie when the "Gipper" takes on Barack Obama.

Take your family and friends to this movie. While the November elections are upon us, this movie will help prepare people for conversations with their elected officials after the elections. It is time to hold them accountable at all levels be it Federal, State, County or City. Remember, it is "your money," your family and friends' money and the money of future generations that the government is taking and wasting.

I Want Your Money includes insightful interviews with Newt Gingrich, Steve Forbes, Ed Meese, Mike Huckabee, John Stossel, Michael Reagan, Congressmen Tom McClintock, Thad McCotter and former California governor Pete Wilson, among many others, EXPLAINING CLEARLY WHY OBAMA’S PLAN HAS FAILED, AND WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO RECOVER.

Allen West and Congressman Ron Klein Complete First Televised Debate

by Javier Manjarres, The Shark Tank:  Congressman Ron Klein and retired Lt. Colonel Allen West had their first debate in their battle for Klein’s Congressional seat in District 22.  Local 10’s Michael Putney moderated the debate and drew out some very important distinctions between the two candidates.

For starters, Congressman Klein reiterated his support of the TARP and the Obama Administration’s disastrous stimulus plan, while West strongly articulated his opposition to both the TARP and the Stimulus.  Congressman Klein, like West, also said that he  believes that small business need to be the beneficiaries of the tax cuts- Klein is one a growing number of Democrats in Congress that now support keeping the Bush Tax Cuts in place.

The difference between the two candidates on the tax cut issue is very clear. West believes that there should be tax cuts across the board and the Government need to stay out of the way of businesses ability to create jobs and grow the economy-taxes stifle job growth. West also believes that the capital gains tax issue, as well as many other tax issues, need to be aggressively addressed.

Congressman Klein on the other hand has a different view of this, asserting that until business can get back on their feet after this meltdown, “Government needs to step in on a temporary basis.”

West countered by explaining that over the course of economic history, when taxes are cut and government stays clear of the process, the economy prospers.

When Putney brought up West’s service in Iraq, and specifically an incident in which West was accused of using ‘torturous’ tactics to extract information from a suspected terrorist that had intelligence on planned ambushes against American soldiers, West took responsibility for his actions and stated that his job as an officer was to look out for his men’s well-being.

Klein did not criticized West on his actions, he praised West for his military service, but he also came across very skittishly and stuttered his way through his explanation as to what soldiers face on the battlefield, as he attempted to try and make the case for his support the Military.

On the issue of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Congressman Klein supports repealing it, while West does not support repeal. As far as the President’s proposed pull back of troops in Afghanistan, Klein supports a measured pull back, as long as the commanders on the ground say so. West on the other hand, does not support any kind of timetable for withdrawal. West stated that the Taliban only “respect strength and might”, and that they (Taliban) cannot be trusted to negotiate. . . . West clearly showed that he was more in command of the debate and simply out-classed Congressman Ron Klein with his knowledge of the issues and the clear sense of purpose he exuded.

Obama's Tax Piracy - Tax Hikes To Drive a Second Collapse?

Bill Smith, Editor: Today, Ed Morrissey at Hot Air commented on Peter Ferrara's new book: "President Obama Tax Piracy: Broadside No. 17." In the past, most people would have skipped a book with with economics and facts for a mindless but enjoyable novel providing momentary enjoyment. But TEA Party Patriots, listeners of Glen Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and numerous other conservative talk show hosts, and the memberships of varied conservative organizations and groups have evidenced a growing concern with both the on going and the pending progressive elitists' socialist agenda for America. People are not only reading, they are looking for substance to educate themselves and others very quickly. The comments today by Morrissey interwoven with charts and words by Ferrara should wet your appetite for Ferrara's new book being released in paperback. It costs less than one of those "evil" large greasy burgers and fries. I know it's tough to choose; so, as an example I am ordering everything: the book, the burger and the fries.

by Ed Morrissey, Hot Air: Congress left Washington without addressing the massive tax hikes that will come at the end of the year as the tax-rate reductions of 2001 and 2003 expire. Absent action on Capitol Hill, those increases will take $4 trillion out of the economy over the next ten years — and even if the lower tax bracket reductions get extended, $700 billion of capital will get redirected from the private sector to Washington. How will that impact economic growth in the US? Peter Ferrara argues that it will create not just a double-dip recession, but a second economic collapse — one worse than what we experienced in 2008.

In his new treatise published by Encounter for its Broadsides collection, Broadside No. 17: President Obama’s Tax Piracy, Ferrara notes that Barack Obama has chosen the opposite strategy in economic policy from both John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, especially the latter. Reagan cut taxes, especially on capital gains and dividends, and broke down regulatory hurdles.  Obama wants not only to raise taxes on those who have the most capital, he wants to make it harder for them to use it as well, quoting a similar analysis by Arthur Laffer:
[W]hen the U.S. economy comes to 2011, the train’s going to come off the tracks. . . . The tax boundary that will occur on January 1 , 2011 tells me that GDP growth in 2010 will be some 6 percent to 8 percent higher than GDP growth in 2011 . A year on year decline from trend of some 6 percent to 8 percent in 2011 growth would represent a larger collapse than occurred in 2008 and early 2009 .
Ferrara includes this helpful and rather cheerless chart to emphasize what Laffer predicts as we hit the “tax boundary”:

On top of that, and in large part because of it, the government won’t see the revenues it expects, either:
President Obam’s budget projects that his tax increases on “the rich” (singles making more than $200,000 and couples making more than $250,000) would raise $678 billion in increased revenue during the next 10 years. The ObamaCare legislation projected another $210 billion from the increased payroll taxes on those workers for a total of nearly $1 trillion. But these tax increases won’t raise anywhere near the revenue projected. Obama will be lucky if this tax piracy doesn’t result in less revenue. . . .

The projections of higher revenues from the other tax rate increases all fail to take into account the negative incentive effects discussed above and the counterproductive interactions from all those effects. Since we know from experience that those incentive effects are powerful and real, the result at a minimum will be less revenue than expected, if not less revenue overall.
This is the problem of static analysis on tax policy. It assumes that the changes in tax policy sets up no other incentives or changes any behavior. Of course it does, though, as do even threatened changes. Ferrara believes that the economy may actually look better than it is this year because capital holders are moving gains and income into 2010 to avoid higher taxes next year. After we hit the tax boundary, all the incentives go the other direction, and that means negative growth across the board.

President Obama’s Tax Piracy gives a worst-case scenario to be sure, but even a milder version of the predicted reaction would be ugly indeed. Ferrara backs up his argument with plenty of data and analysis for a 49-page treatise, the format of the impressive Broadside series.  He reviews the results of policy changes in tax law and regulatory expansion and retraction over the past 50 years and draws clear policy implications from all. We have been down both roads before, and often enough to have a map to the destinations of each.

Ferrara’s book will be released in the next couple of weeks, but do yourself a favor and pre-order a copy The price makes it affordable to almost everyone, and also will be released in Kindle format, which I highly recommend.

The Boston Globe "The House And Senate Adjourned Last Night, Leaving The Central Pocketbook Issue To Be Decided After The Nov. 2 Midterm Elections -- and just weeks before the tax cuts are set to expire.

Socialists March at Left-Wing Protest in DC

Socialist protesters and paraphernalia dominated Saturday's (10-2-2010) left-wing protest rally in Washington, DC. The so-called "One Nation" rally was led by labor unions as an attempt to counter Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally, which took place in DC on 8-28-2010. They obviously didn't get it since Restoring Honor was about our Nation turning back to God and their attempt is to trun to a failed "ism"s which has led in the past to millions of deaths.

Are Liberals Lying About Trash?

Checking my stats (at Michigan Redneck II), some of the search words people used to come to my blog were “restoring honor trash”, “restoring honor rally trash”, “restoring honor rally trash photos”, “beck rally trash photos “restoring honor”, “did restoring honor rally leave trash behind”, “”restoring honor” trash”, “trash at restoring honor rally.”

This is making me wonder if liberals are lying and saying that the pictures of trash from the One Nation rally are pics from the Restoring Honor rally. That or when confronted about the trash they are answering that Restoring Honor left trash also. If this weren’t the case, then why would they search about trash at Restoring Honor a month after the rally? Well I googled for results that could be found for these searches. All links lead to comparisons that Restoring Honor attendees left no trash while One Nation left mounds of trash at all points of the rally. I guess those spreading lies didn’t think viewers, listeners or readers would do any research.

Check this vid with cool funk/soul with the chorus being the name of the rally.


Yeah Che! Communism is like kewl man! “One Nation under (what?)”? Check the lady after frame 1:01. Oh no, she wasn’t part of this mess. No. Not her. She thinks it’s horrible. But is she willing to grab a bag and her, her husband and her kid start picking up what they can? No. Remember kids, it starts with one person and the rest will follow. If you pick up yours and others trash, you can lead and others will follow. Worst of all? Frame 2:06 to finish, flag left on the ground by a tree.
