CBS sticks thumb in America's eye
This past few weeks, CBS has made two decisions that have the potential to send the network into an unrecoverable tailspin. Sharyll Atkisson, the journalist who pushed the Fast and Furious and Benghazi stories forward with unflinching honesty providing CBS News with rare credibility in mainstream America, is now a free agent as the network decided to move on without her hard hitting, apolitical reporting. Then, faced with NBC's fresh-faced Jimmy Fallon, of Saturday Night Live fame, CBS had its choice of potential late night hosts, and they rapidly settled upon Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert.

Democrats and Republicans agree — Obama can't be trusted
Republicans and Democrats in Congress needed to step up and vote unanimously on a common sense bill preventing a known Iranian terrorist (and participant in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis) from being an Iranian diplomat to the United States, proving that nobody in Washington trusts Barack Obama to make the most basic foreign policy decisions on behalf of American interests.

End the international sugar subsidies for Big Candy
The National Confectioners Association projects that Easter candy sales are projected to be up to a whopping $2.26 billion this year—but what is truly good news for those who convert sugar into delectable treats, is bad news for those who through their own blood and sweat grow sugar in the United States.

Obama's gender inequality demagoguery
Barack Obama does not have the votes to pass the so-called Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that professes to address the 23-cent income gap between men and women. So, he is just going to issue an executive order and act as if the legislation has passed for federal contractors.

Joe Kennedy – the end of a family's legacy

Kennedy, whose main claim to fame is that he is the son of former U.S. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy, has turned his family's name on its head.  His silence stands in stark contrast to his Uncle John F. Kennedy's famous" Ich bin ein Berliner" speech where the President declared all Americans to be Berliners when that city was divided by the Berlin Wall, and the people of the east trapped in a communist hell for a generation.

NRSC - Jeanne Shaheen: Rubber Stamp for Obama's Tax Agenda 

April 3, 2014

OBAMA'S RUBBER STAMP

Jeanne Shaheen Works With President Obama to
Raise Granite Staters' Taxes

Votes with Obama an Astonishing 99% of The Time





Though Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen claims to be an independent voice for New Hampshire, her record falls well short of her rhetoric. Jeanne Shaheen has been a rubber stamp for Barack Obama's liberal agenda, voting with the unpopular President a shocking 99% of the time - even to the detriment of workers, families, and businesses in New Hampshire.

When it comes to taxes, Jeanne Shaheen's rhetoric is drastically different from her actions. Jeanne Shaheen has voted with Obama to raise taxes on middle class families and workers, destroying jobs and stifling investment and innovation. Jeanne Shaheen supports the same destructive agenda that Barack Obama champions including: 

  • Devastating: Jeanne Shaheen's vote for ObamaCare means $810 billion in taxes that hurt job growth.
  • Irresponsible: Jeanne Shaheen voted for the Obama-Reid tax bill that would have increased taxes on millions of families and small businesses.
  • Destructive: Jeanne Shaheen voted against a permanent repeal of the Death Tax.
  • Reckless: Jeanne Shaheen voted for the Senate Democrats’ budget that raised taxes nearly $1 trillion.

"President Obama's agenda is basically Jeanne Shaheen's agenda, since one doesn't support someone they disagree with 99% of the time," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "In Washington, Jeanne Shaheen has consistently supported President Obama's policies, even when they hurt job growth and create uncertainty and unnecessary burdens for Granite Staters. Granite Staters deserve a Senator that isn't just a rubber stamp for the liberal Obama agenda, but someone who will always stand up for the best interests of New Hampshire."

BACKGROUND

Shaheen Voted With Obama To Raise Taxes On The Middle Class, Small Businesses Owners And Farmers And Ranchers

The Joint Committee On Taxation Report Found That ObamaCare Raises Taxes On Middle-Class Americans. “There are a number of tax provisions in the health care bill that may directly increase taxes on some individuals and families earning less than $200,000 and $250,000 per year. Furthermore, other tax provisions in the bill that directly affect businesses may ultimately affect individuals and families earning less than $200,000 and $250,000, respectively, to the extent that increased taxes results in higher prices for the products of the affected businesses.” (Joint Committee On Taxation, Letter To Senator Tom Coburn, 3/20/12)

  • Shaheen Pays For ObamaCare With $810.8 Billion In Job-Killing Taxes On Small Businesses, Investments And Innovation. (“Updated Estimates For The Insurance Coverage Provisions Of The Affordable Care Act,” Congressional Budget Office, 3/12; “Estimated Revenue Effects Of A Proposal To Repeal Certain Tax Provisions Contained In The ‘Affordable Care Act,’” Joint Committee On Taxation, 6/15/12)

In July 2010, Shaheen Voted Against A Permanent Repeal Of The Death Tax. (H.R. 4213, CQ Vote #213: Motion Rejected 39-59: D 2-54; R 37-3; I 0-2, 7/21/10, Shaheen Voted Nay)

  • In April 2009, Shaheen Voted For President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2010 Budget Which Would Have Instituted A 45% Estate Tax, With An Exemption Level Of $3.5 Million. (S. Con. Res. 13, CQ Vote #173: Adopted 53-43: R 0-40; D 51-3; I 2-0, 4/29/09, Shaheen Voted Yea; Editorial, “Night Of The Living Death Tax,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/31/09)

In 2012, Shaheen Voted For The Obama-Reid Tax Bill That Would Have Increased Taxes On Single Filers Earning More Than $200,000, And Joint Filers Earning More Than $250,000. “Passage of the bill that would extend the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts for one year on taxable income of up to $200,000 for single filers or up to $250,000 for joint filers. The bill would set the tax rate for adjusted gross income above $250,000 at 33 percent and for adjusted gross income above $400,000 at 35 percent. It also would expand the child tax credit and extend the college tuition tax credit and the earned income tax credit. It would set tax rates for long-term capital gains and dividends at 20 percent. The bill also would allow a business property deduction of $250,000 and extend the alternative minimum tax provisions for 2012 income.” (S. 3412, CQ Vote #184: Passed 51-48: R 0-46; D 50-1; I 1-1, 7/25/12, Shaheen Voted Yea)

In 2010, Shaheen Voted For A Bill That Would Have Let The Republican Tax Cuts Expire On Income Up To $200,000 For Individuals And $250,000 For Joint Filers. “Motion to invoke cloture (thus limiting debate) on the Reid, D-Nev., motion to concur in the House amendment to the Senate amendment with a further Baucus, D-Mont., substitute amendment no. 4727 that would make permanent the 2001- and 2003-enacted tax cuts on income up to $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples filing joint returns. The extensions would include current lower tax rates for capital gains and dividends, elimination of the ‘marriage penalty’ and an expansion of the increased child tax credit. It also would extend unemployment insurance benefits for 13 months.” (H.R. 4853, CQ Vote #258: Motion rejected 53-36: R 0-31; D 52-4; I 1-1, 12/4/10, Shaheen Voted Yea)

In March 2013, Shaheen Voted For The Senate Democrats’ Budget That Raised Taxes Nearly $1 Trillion. “Adoption of the concurrent resolution that would set broad spending and revenue targets over the next 10 years. It would allow up to $966 billion in discretionary spending for fiscal 2014, the statutory level reflecting automatic cuts known as sequestration, but would call for replacing the sequester with a combination of revenue increases and spending cuts. It would direct the Finance Committee to produce legislation that would increase revenue by $975 billion over 10 years. It would call for $275 billion in cuts from mandatory health programs without making major structural changes to entitlements. It also would call for $23 billion in cuts to agriculture programs and an increase of $100 billion for infrastructure and worker training programs. As amended, the resolution would allow for a repeal of the 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices and the creation of a biennial budget and appropriations process.” (S. Con. Res. 8, CQ Vote #92: Adopted 50-49: R 0-45; D 48-4; I 2-0, 3/23/13, Shaheen Voted Yea)

  • Shaheen Voted Against An Amendment That Would Have Removed The Tax Increases From The Budget. “Grassley, R-Iowa, amendment no. 156, that would create a deficit-neutral reserve fund to pay for the impact of any legislation to implement a revenue-neutral tax overhaul. The amendment would strike reconciliation instructions that would direct the Finance Committee to produce legislation that would increase revenue levels by $975 billion over the next 10 years.” (S. Con. Res. 8, CQ Vote #49: Rejected 45-54: R 45-0; D0-52; I 0-2, 3/21/13, Shaheen Voted Nay)

ALG's Daily Grind - Can Obama give away the Internet without Congress?

April 1, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds and cartoons granted.

Can Obama give away the Internet without Congress?
Wall Street Journal's L. Gordon Crovitz: "The Property Clause of the Constitution says Congress must pass legislation to effect a transfer of government property. Arguably the president could no more transfer the valuable control over the naming and domains of the Internet than he could give Alaska back to Russia."

Compelling Evidence of the Forgery of Obama’s Birth Certificate Lodged with the United States Supreme Court, Case No.: 13-1158

Washington D.C. (MMD Newswire) March 28, 2014 -- Douglas Vogt has lodged with the United States Supreme Court his compelling forensic evidence that the Birth Certificate of Barack Hussein Obama, II is indisputably a forgery.

That forensic evidence is contained in Vogt's 95 page Public (http://www.obamaforgerybook.com/PDF_Files/Memorandum_of_Law_on_Sealing_Affidavit_10-21-13.pdf) and 75 page Sealed Affidavits. Barack Hussein Obama, II - at his White House Press Conference on April 27, 2011 - released his Birth Certificate to prove that he was Constitutionally-eligible to be President. The lodging of the Affidavits accompanied Vogt's filing of a Petition for Certiorari with the Supreme Court which has been assigned Case No: 13-1158 (http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.aspx?FileName=/docketfiles/13-1158.htm). That Petition seeks review of the refusal of the Federal District Court to refer Vogt's Affidavits to a federal Grand Jury as required by Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, Rule 6(a) (http://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcrmp/rule_6).

Rule 6(a) states: "When the public interest so requires, the court must order that one or more grand juries be summoned." Vogt's Petition argues that there can be no higher "public interest" than the issue of whether Barack Hussein Obama, II, has foisted a forged Birth Certificate upon the Citizens of the United States. Accordingly, the Petition argues, the lower federal court has breached its Congressionally-imposed duty to "summon" a Grand Jury to hear Vogt's well-founded, forensic proof of the forgery of Obama's Birth Certificate.

At its core, the Petition raises the issue of who can seek invocation of the Grand Jury's Constitutionally-unique investigative power. As well documented by Justice Scalia and others of the Supreme Court, originally that right to communicate to the Grand Jury could be invoked by anyone so that the Grand Jury could investigate any matter: "no matter how or by whom suggested to them." Yet, as recognized by Justice Douglas in United States v. Dioniso (http://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/410/1/case.html), it is: "common knowledge that the Grand Jury, having been conceived as a bulwark between the citizen and the Government, is now a tool of the Executive."

Said Vogt: "All I ask is that a Grand Jury hear my forensic evidence regarding Obama's Birth Certificate. Then, if they think warranted, by issuing a few documentary subpoenas, the Grand Jury can quickly answer the question We the People have a right to know: Is the office of the President being held by one who is not Constitutionally-eligible to hold that office and who may not even be a U.S. citizen? The small burden on: (i) the Hawaiian Department of Health (ii) Occidental College, (iii) Columbia University, (iv) Harvard Law School, (v) the Social Security Administration, (vi) U.S. Center for Disease Control, Department of Vital Statistics, (vii) the Selective Service Administration and (viii) the Law Firm of Perkins Coie to produce their records regarding Obama is minimal. Through such subpoenas, this important question will be answered once and for all: Is Obama really who he says he is?"
