“The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure.” ― Albert Einstein

What the left and right hands are doing…
By TLB Contributor: Ken LaRive.
It is hard to remember anything of substance when one is constantly hit form all sides, and even harder when one doesn’t even notice the hits, increment by increment… Last year some Christians, a handful, protested about the White-House’s overbearing plans to force all insurance companies to cover, at no charge, all contraceptives, abortion inducing drugs, and sterilization, that had become the very soul of Obamacare. Catholic schools and hospitals, and faith-based pregnancy centers were being coerced to offer the coverage, and only after saying emphatically NO! …did the administration back off, or so it seemed. But they continue to attempt to fund it from other sources, and so well hidden, it will take on a new name, or slide inside of a last minute unread addendum… And they are indeed very clever, and unrelenting as well, as they are promoting a new set of ideologies… and they are these… Government has the power to dictate, people have a need to be dictated, our religious institutions are at odds with these ideologues, and must be curbed at all cost… and so, three months ago it became known that Americans were being spied on, Conservative businesses were under the lens of a new form of tyranny, the IRS, …that our phone records and emails were used in super computer compilations, that resistive Catholics and Evangelical institutions non-compliant… were put on the terrorist watch list, and that all of this information was sent to Israel for processing. Yes, this is the New American Way.
Note: There is no way at this time to prove this, but soon it will be known the true link between the insurance lobby and the Affordable Care Act. Mark my word.
Our religious liberties, as given in our 1st Amendment, should be protected, so Obama is attempting to go around this by mandating insurance companies to “accommodate” these institutions to offer “free” contraception… so that religious institutions don’t have to. Christians will now pay for contraception, one way or the other, just as they are forced to pay for abortions… with their tax dollars. Sleight of hand, a grand illusion, so masterfully performed, and evil to the bone… and that is a good description of our government, both Neocon and Progressive alike. You see, we have the best government money can buy.
On the surface one might think that Obama is implementing myopic and self-serving mandates, as both religious and individual liberty is being trampled in a one size fits all health care package, as explained in a speech given by The Heritage Foundation: here Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) spoke and explained his opposition to this latest Obamacare mandate. In an interview with Heritage, Blunt called the move a “genuine assault on First Amendment freedoms” and that this “accommodation” as nothing more than an “accounting gimmick.” So let me be clear here. What is happen to America now, so expediently, is not myopic or self serving at all, but has been in the works for a century. Progressives have taken on the mantle of what was once called “Liberal” and the right and the left have merged into one primary ideologue, big government controlled by international conglomerate banking consortium, a Federal Reserve printing money out of thin air and giving it to others of like kind to the order of 17.2 trillion (4 trillion from the Neocon Bush, and 7.2 from the so called Progressive Obama. What this is, is debt slavery, and will bring on what is inevitable, the insolvency of America, and WW3. Now we are to hate Russia, fear China, and hate hate hate for the military industrial complex…
“This is not about cost. It’s about the Constitution,” Mr.Blunt said. “And if you can decide this no longer offends me because I don’t have to pay for it, I guess your concern is financial all the time and not faith-based.” And Mr. Blunt has hit the nail of this issue squarely! All of it, everything we are and becoming is dictated not for the good of America, but for what is considered lucrative. America has no relevance in a New World Order of collectivism, and profits are made world wide. We Americans have grown a middle class on the backs of slave labor, and that is the real reason we have lost our industry, to Japan, to China, to South Vietnam, to South Korea.
“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” ― George Orwell
“Unfortunately, the president’s disregard for the First Amendment is not his first assault on the Constitution. Earlier this year, President Obama cast aside our government’s fundamental separation of powers when he made four unconstitutional appointments without bothering to seek the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate, as the Constitution requires.
Yesterday, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), who was among the first to warn about the consequences of the president’s unilateral action, spoke at Heritage about the ramifications of those appointments. In an exclusive interview, he explained that today, more than a month after the illegal appointments, a new director is running the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three members of the National Labor Relations Board are conducting business — all in blatant violation of the Constitution.”
“He’s reading the Constitution in a way that’s manifestly wrong,” Lee explained. “It’s contrary to the text. It’s contrary to tradition and practice, and it’s contrary to logic.”
“This is not a partisan issue for me. I would be equally outraged if this were a Republican president doing this same thing,” Lee added. “Once this gains some momentum, this practice could be very destructive to the Senate’s prerogative of advice and consent. This is a power that doesn’t belong to the president. It belongs to the people of the United States of America.”
Notes on Liberty and deception…
President Obama, of course, offers justifications for his actions… In the case of the illegal appointments, he says that he simply “can’t wait” for the Congress to act. In the case of the Obamacare contraception mandate, he insists he is acting in the best interest of the American people, while offering a “fair” accommodation to religious institutions. The trouble is that the president is measuring himself against his own subjective standard while disregarding the objective limitations of his power. But in essence, Obama is acting precisely as his handlers wish, or he would have already been assassinated. Oh, a stretch? “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country,” is not the mantra of a Progressive government… And the last true Liberal is molding in his grave, along with his brother, who knew too much. But then, you have the luxury of believing what you will, even if you are wrong.
In a government where there are no practical limits on executive overreach, there are likewise no limits on the government’s ability to impose its will on the people. With the president’s trampling of religious liberties, the country is getting its first taste of the consequences of Obama’s unmitigated power grab. And if this power remains unchecked, there are certainly more consequences to come. Unchecked, because most all Americans could care less, as a lack of truth goes unnoticed in a land of self serving myopia. Since 9-11 the NDAA and Patriot Act has obliterated due process, the cornerstone of our American Liberty, a Republic based on Law. It is gone, and few notice because they are so uneducated, so caught up in survival mode, so trusting, so fearful, they sit silently in their little microcosm… as they are only capable of acting when the fist pounds on their door…
“One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens would pay nearly half of everything they earn to the government.” ― Ron Paul
But of course, with as much respect for Ron Paul as I have, it is evident to me that he can not say everything he knows, and he knows a lot… from 9-11 to the NSA, from the Patriot Act to the unbridled power of the Federal Reserve. If he did, surely, he would have been assassinated by now… Because those who have the ability to destroy countries, and produce a profit in the process, who can print money out of thin air, and charge our children’s future with debt slavery, a debt so big we are not even able to pay the interest without printing more, would do anything at all… anything to stay in power… even if it meant the death of America. Even if it meant promoting another profitable world war. Even if it meant the death of a billion, none of it would matter. No one would be held accountable, as they hide behind a shield of corporatism. A conglomerate, interactive array of corporations that make up the military industrial complex… International Corporations that go headlong unchecked, because they have paid for that privilege… by buying our congress. They knew they could not kill Ron Paul, and so did what they are so very good at, propagandizing and marginalizing him into oblivion.
Who are “they?”
They are offshore corporations, beyond the reach of what is left of our Republic based on law, and when the last drop of America’s life’s blood is forfeit, they will move to more futile ground, and the world will belong to them, once and for all… and America, once proud and strong, will be just another footnote in a long list of Republics who have suffered the same fate, the fate of tyranny… and if, just by chance. you find it necessary to ask yourself just who these people are, just find out who you are not allowed to talk about. And today, just the thought is a capital offense, and subject to being labeled as a terrorist, as Catholics and Evangelical Christians have become, in the process of progressive enslavement.
Think tanks know that a nation divided is easily conquered, and this concept goes all the way back to Julius Cesar… stretching forward into our future the Progressive thoughts of Machiavelli and the Prince… and Obama is not called The Prince by his temporizers out of congeniality, but out of reverence for those who pull his strings.
