Democrats Caving to Labor Pressure on Perez Nomination

ALG's Mehrens: "Perez has demonstrated time and again not only a strong willingness, but almost a zeal, to subvert the law to meet his own political agenda."

Oops, maybe government is tyrannical

Practically overnight people labeled conspiracy theorists by the elite were proven prescient interpreters of how big government operates when news broke last Friday that the IRS targeted conservative groups for special scrutiny in their tax-exempt applications.

NRSC - Shaheen Budget Will Hurt New Hampshire 

Shaheen's Support of Unbalanced Budget, Tax Hikes Will Cost New Hampshire Thousands of Jobs, Families Over $2,400 Each Year


WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats introduced their budget last week— the first time they have done so in four years.  The Democrat plan raises taxes, increases debt and spending and never balances. Ever. Senator Jeanne Shaheen hasnt ruled out supporting this disastrous budget, which Politico reported is to "the left of [President] Obama himself," and will cost the average New Hampshire family over $2,400 per year and the state an average of over 2,600 jobs per year over the next ten years according to a Committee Report.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is calling on Shaheen to oppose the Democratic Senate Budget because of the devastating effects it has on New Hampshire families and the state:

“Support for this budget shows that Jeanne Shaheen believes that Congress spends money so well that families in New Hampshire should send even more of their dollars to Washington.  Not only is Shaheen likely to support a budget that never balances, it destroys thousands of jobs in New Hampshire and will cost the average family more than $2,400 each year," said NRSC Communications Director Brad Dayspring.

ALG's Daily Grind - Germany's Green Energy Disaster: A Cautionary Tale For World Leaders 

March 15, 2013

 

Germany's Green Energy Disaster: A Cautionary Tale For World Leaders

Because renewable power sources have been so unreliable, Germany has been forced to construct numerous new coal plants in an effort to replace the nuclear energy it has taken offline.

It's not 'wacko' to question the government

Conservatives shouldn't just question why Obama should have the authority to use military force against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil, they should question why any President should have that authority.

What will the debt be in 2042?

If the debt continues growing faster than the economy, we're in trouble.

TheCanKicksBack - Rivlin, Walker dance the “Harlem Shake” in new web video

Budget experts encourage young people to "shake things up" in debt debate


Budget experts Alice Rivlin and David Walker are featured dancing the “Harlem Shake” in a new web video released today by The Can Kicks Back (TCKB) campaign.
 
“There’s no dancing around the fact that more needs to be done, quickly, to put our future debt on a downward track,” said Rivlin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office and White House Office of Management and Budget.
 
“What’s going on in Washington is truly outrageous; it’s time to shake things up,” said Walker, former Comptroller General of the United States.
 
TCKB’s dented mascot, AmeriCAN, is also featured in the dance. 



The video plays off a meme that went viral in the last week. According to YouTube, more than 12,000 “Harlem Shake” videos have been viewed 44 million times to date.
 
“We intend to make the important issue of our national debt ‘go viral’ among young Americans by reaching them where they already are online in a context that will call them to action rather than put them to sleep,” said Nick Troiano, TCKB’s field director.
 
A previous popular video from the non-partisan, Millennial-led organization featured former Senator and fiscal commission co-chair Alan Simpson dancing Gangnam Style.
 
The Can Kicks Back campaign was launched in November 2012 to educate, organize and mobilize the Millennial generation on the issue of our $16.4 trillion and growing national debt. The campaign will soon announce the launch of more than 100 local chapters in high schools, college campuses and young professional communities across the country.

48 Hours Until Thousands of Obama Protesters Converge on all State Capitols 

February 13, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- Over 20,000 people have signed up online to attend the National Protests Against Obama (NPAO) in all 50 state capitals in 48 hours through both ALIPAC's Facebook event page and website AgainstAmnesty.com. Despite the recently documented censorship efforts by Facebook, the number of protesters planning to muster is growing rapidly!

Peaceful and racially inclusive picket style protests will take place on public sidewalks at all 50 American state capitols this Saturday, February 16, from 11am to 1pm in respective time zones.

Protest address locations and more information can be found on the Facebook invite page at https://www.facebook.com/events/4653...94260/?fref=ts

Online activists are spreading the word and encouraging like-minded citizens to join using e-mails, social media, online communities, and calls to talk radio shows.

The attendance ranks are swelling despite the fact Facebook has been caught red handed blocking ads promoting the protests, allowing pro Obama activists to deface the NPAO event page, and blocking the main event page from the search results of the Facebook search engine.

"More Americans are quickly learning that both the main stream and social media are acting as extensions of Obama's totalitarian, dictatorial, and nation dividing regime," said William Gheen, the primary NPAO organizer and President of ALIPAC. "We are proud to see so many Americans standing up and speaking out against these abuses of our political and financial systems, our citizens, our Republic, and our entire Bill of Rights."

The NPAO rallies are designed to take place legally, picket style, without permits, to test if Americans still have the right to both peacefully assemble and the right to petition government for redress of grievances. Some recent gun rights protests that sought permits were placed in locations where their attendees could not be seen by the public or lawmakers.

Protesters will be citing a host of valid concerns and complaints regarding Barack Obama's policies such as unprecedented spending and debt, Amnesty for illegal aliens orders by fiat, attempts to restrict gun rights, attacks on free speech on the web, the purchase of thousands of assault rifles for the Mexican mafia via Fast and Furious, the ridiculous cover story released during Benghazigate, the unconstitutional appointments to the Labor Board, the suspension of Habeas Corpus rights through the NDAA, and many more policy issues not related to Obama's race.

Talk radio show hosts and members of the American media are encouraged to inform more Americans about these protests before they occur and to attend these protests to speak with participants.
