8 Reasons Why It Might Actually Happen

Obamacare medical device tax killing jobs in the industry

A prediction come true:
A funny thing happened on the way to the passage of the health care bill. Congress had to pay for it. So, they cobbled together a couple billion here, wrung from taxing small-money business investments via crippling paperwork, and a couple billion there, taken from the wallets of tanning salon denizens. One of those taxes, forecasted to bring in $29 billion over 10 years, hits the medical device industry. Congress exempted such items as contacts and eyeglasses to prevent the tax hike from touching everyday purchases, but that doesn’t mean people won’t feel the cost in other ways, as Yonkman’s story illustrates.

Watch and see how the MSM covers --or doesn't-- this huge win for religious freedom

Hugh Hewitt:
I have said since the Obamacare decision came down that one of the silver linings is that we would get a ruling on the HHS regs from SCOTUS before this was through, and that ruling will either uphold the Religious Freedom Restoration Act or strike down the HHS regs on Free Exercise grounds.

Have you heard of TeaPartyInsider.com ?

TeaPartyInsider.com is the ultimate go-to site for all things "Tea Party." It is a continuously-updated platform comprised of breaking news, commentary, blogs, press releases and events related to national and state Tea Party associations.

From its inception in 2009, the Tea Party has met with huge, quantifiable successes. . .

The Tea Party Movement is unique in that it has no central control, nor any national leader. While this has been labeled both a strength and weakness, the model has thus far served the Tea Party quite well. It was immensely successful in the 2010 elections when forty of its candidates won election to Congress and the Senate. With the Movement's backing, the GOP realized its largest electoral gains since 1946.

Unquestionably, the Tea Party is attempting to play a major role in deciding who will emerge victorious from the 2012 elections. Given the unparalleled challenges facing the nation, the Movement realizes that there has never been a better opportunity to sell its ideas, advance its limited government agenda--- and flex its muscles to achieve another smashing electoral success.

And that work has already begun, as there are Tea Party Caucuses in both the Senate and House of Representatives, and jockeying for Tea Party backing in the presidential primaries in full swing.

With an expert staff leveraging close relationships with national Tea Party leaders, political commentators and presidential contenders, TeaPartyInsider is ideally situated to be the best source of accurate information for up to the minute developments and expert analysis on aspects of the Tea Party Movement.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for “massive civil war” in America

his sources tell him the concerns of the DHS stem from a collapse of the U.S. dollar and the hyperinflation a collapse in the value of the world’s primary reserve currency implies to a nation of 311 million Americans, who, for the significant portion of the population, is armed.

Russian media magnate Dmitry Itskov is heading "Avatar," a tremendously ambitious and far-reaching multidisciplinary research project that aims to achieve immortality in humans within the next three decades. He plans to do it by housing human brains in progressively more disembodied vehicles, first transplanting them into robots and then, by the year 2045, by reverse-engineering the human brain and effectively "downloading" human consciousness onto a computer chip.


"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that"
Chick-fil-A does not discriminate.
They serve anyone that wants a chicken burger and they are open to hiring anyone. It is just that the CEO of the company does not think gay marriage is a good idea (along with half of the rest of America) and this absolutely infuriates the politically correct crowd.
Want to know how you can help?
Wednesday, August 1st, has been designated as "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day". I encourage all of you to go out and buy a chicken burger that day to show your support of free speech. If we don't stand up for free speech now, soon it will be totally gone. Already, the name of Jesus is becoming a forbidden word all over America. Just consider the following examples. . .

"The name of the game being played against Chick-fil-A involved ending the discussion, by ruling one side of this important social debate completely out of order, and dismissing their beliefs as unworthy of respect. All resistance to gay marriage is instantly transmuted into personal hatred of gay people. On the other hand, criticism of traditional marriage proponents cannot be viewed as hateful, no matter how angrily it might be expressed. It’s a rigged heads-we-win, tails-you-lose game. . ."

In the end, we will end up just like North Korea if we are not very careful.

Government surveillance of Americans — off-the-radar and under wraps — is growing at an exponential rate

...there was a “key decision made shortly after 9/11, which began to rapidly turn the United States of America into the equivalent of a foreign nation for dragnet blanket electronic surveillance.”
Yes, something changed after 9/11 and we ended up with a president who NEVER replaced his Muslim name "Hussein" with a Christian name as most do when they undergo a religious conversion (as he professes to have done).
Although Drake’s accusations seem astounding, they corroborate allegations made by Binney only a week earlier. Speaking at the Hackers On Planet Earth conference in New York City earlier this month, Binney addressed a room of thousands about the NSA’s domestic spying efforts. But in a candid interview with journalist Geoff Shively during HOPE, the ex-NSA official candidly revealed the full extent of the surveillance program.

“Domestically, they're pulling together all the data about virtually every U.S. citizen in the country and assembling that information, building communities that you have relationships with, and knowledge about you; what your activities are; what you're doing. So the government is accumulating that kind of information about every individual person and it's a very dangerous process,” Binney said.

Drake and Binney’s statements follow the revelation that law enforcement officers collected cell phone records on 1.3 million Americans in 2011. More news articles are emerging every day suggesting that the surveillance of Americans — off-the-radar and under wraps — is growing at an exponential rate.

Troops Ordered To Kill All Americans Who Do Not Turn In Guns

When members of our military and law enforcement start taking these things seriously, so do I.

A former CA Highway Patrol officer forwarded to me the following email he received:
"When I first started watching this video I thought it was BS, then at 7 minutes into the clip I became curious,and concerned.

Thought I would forward this for your take."

Semper Fi,
So then I forwarded it to a former Army combat infantry Veteran who has current direct connections = Association linked closely with active duty combat infantry units both Germany & U.S.

He says this:
"I can not say with certainty that the item here is totally legit.

However, what I can say with some confidence is that at least some of the active duty infantry folks with whom I am close have told me they have been assigned to attend more than one session involving control of civilian populations, including how to disarm, etc. These classes have taken place over the past 90-120 days.

When the active duty folks have asked why they are being assigned to attend this specific training, they are simply told it is basic continuing education. But there is talk among the ranks on this topic.
Just in case you're interested, here's the article (which has the video) they were discussing:

Troops Ordered To Kill All Americans Who Do Not Turn In Guns
The UN Arms Trade Treaty that has been identified by observers as a flagrant threat to the second amendment and which Barack Obama is determined to sign has its roots in a 1961 State Department memorandum which explains how the United Nations will oversee “complete disarmament” of the American people under the ruse of preventing war. The UN Arms Treaty has caused so much controversy because it outlines a plan to target “all types of conventional weapons, notably including small arms and light weapons,” according to Forbes’ Larry Bell.

Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton also warns that the agreement “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
So what do you think?

It's an urban legend that the government launched the Internet

Somebody, please: tell Obama! If a teacher told their students as many falsehoods as Obama keeps telling the citizens, they'd be fired (well, in the old days they would've been fired).

Contrary to legend, it wasn't the federal government, and the Internet had nothing to do with maintaining communications during a war.

FBI document issued 5/17/12 warning of theater attacks disappears

"Many thanks to Julio Rausseo for getting this information out."

7/21/2012 -- FBI theater attack warning issued on May 17, 2012


SHOCK: United Airlines employees kicked disabled vet's service dog...twice!

This happened at Dulles Airport in Washington. These employees should be charged with a crime and dismissed. This is not acceptable!
Sarge, his service dog, was kicked once at the ticket counter and then once again on a shuttle.
And that's not the only shocking thing that happened:
Jim said the stress was overwhelming and asked a customer service representative for help because he had trouble reading a reservation email.

"He said, 'Just read it' and I said, 'Sir I can't read it,' and he said, 'What are you retarded?'" Jim recalls. "Prior to this I told him I have a brain injury and PTSD, I'm a disabled vet, this is my second night here; I need help."

If Obama and the Democrats are re-elected in November, look for 25% unemployment because Atlas will have shrugged.

Mr. President the business of America is Business NOT Government

I take President Obama’s latest slam against small business people personally.  I was a small business man for 30 years and during that time I did over 2,000 private placements to raise the capital to feed several million cattle. During that time the only obstacle I faced was government.  If it wasn’t SEC compliance, it was tax law concerns. If it wasn’t agricultural department red tape it was slaughter house regulations.

I conducted this business as a tennis shoe cowboy in Encino CA with the help of 2 or 3 clerical help.  To tell me I had to thank my lucky stars for government’s help is pure Marxian propaganda on the part of Obama.  Government restricted and limited my capabilities and opportunities at every turn. I won’t thank government I will fight it in the future to limit its powers.

With the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd Frank legislation I couldn’t afford to do what I did for 30 years as it would cost me $200,000 to $400,000 for EACH private placement even before I attempted to get an investor.  No wonder start-ups have slowed and unemployment is sky rocketing; raising money for new ventures is limited to only the very wealthy who can afford the cost of these new regulations. Let’s face it, these regulations favor the very wealthy contrary to the BS Obama is selling the middle-class and poor people.

If Obama and the Democrats are re-elected in November, look for 25% unemployment because Atlas will have shrugged.

No strings?


Campus Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum, reported that in 2006, someone at The Harvard Crimson wondered if something was up: No Strings Attached? [on Alwaleed's $20 million gift to Harvard]

Today, this delicate dance is no longer necessary:

Want to Know Just How Close the Muslim Brotherhood Is to the Obama Admin?

But it does explain why Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal would first contact Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Manour who would then contact Harlem lawyer Percy Sutton to wield his influence at Harvard to get Obama in.
Harlem lawyer Percy Sutton – whose clients included Malcolm X – explained that Islamic radical Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour, “one of the world’s wealthiest men,” asked him to write a letter of recommendation to Harvard Law School for then relatively unknown Barack Obama.

In the video, Sutton says he was introduced to Obama by al-Mansour, a Saudi citizen, who “was then raising money” for Obama.

Sutton described al-Mansour as being from Texas, saying al-Mansour was the “principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men,” most likely Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.
Did radical Muslims help send Obama to Harvard?

The media's direct intervention to PREVENT a proper vetting of candidate Obama -- LA Times Withholds Video of Obama Toasting Former PLO Operative at Jew Bashing Dinner -- meant that the deal was sealed.

All these machinations mean there were some pretty high stakes involved.

Getting a friend of Islam in the White House was only the beginning.

2 myths about "the rich"

The presidential election has given us two myths about the rich. First, that their incomes, and income inequality, are at all-time highs. Second, that the wealthy pay less in taxes than ever, and lower taxes than the rest of us.

A recent report from the Congressional Budget Office, however, suggests that both may be false.

Friday, July 20, 2012


Dennis Kennedy, TWAW [The Well Armed Woman] fan and Director of Training for Counter Terrorism Institute of America wrote an article on preparing for an active shooter situation. This article has been widely distributed and published you all are free to share with his blessing.
Active Shooter Training for Citizens
By Dennis Kennedy
The recent shootings at Trolley Square, Virginia Tech and the Omaha Mall remind us that violence can strike at any time and in any place. These types of events are not unusual. They occur everywhere. They happen in churches, malls, schools and workplaces. They will happen again. Have a plan.

Whether you carry a gun or not, these are some precautions that everyone can take to be better prepared if it happens to you.

Family Emergency Plan - BEFORE any emergency occurs, develop a Family Emergency Plan. This plan may be used for any emergency. Keep it simple, such as developing a rendezvous point in the event you are separated. Have an alternative plan. No matter where you are, a simple plan is better than no plan.

Situational Awareness - Be AWARE of your surroundings and situation. NOT paranoid, just aware. Keeping the cell phone jammed in your ear 24/7 is not being AWARE. Even if you see something that does not seem right, leave and call police.

Find an EXIT - When out in public, look for and know how to get to the nearest TWO exits. Don’t concern yourself that they may be marked EMERGENCY, EMPLOYEE ONLY or ALARMED. You are going to use them anyway in an emergency.

Breakage - If you are trapped in an active shooter situation and there are no door exits but windows are available, BREAK THEM! Use whatever is available up to and including your firearm to break glass doors or windows to escape the threat!

Move - If you hear gunfire or see the shooter, immediately go to the nearest exit and AWAY from the shooter. The farther away you get, the safer you will be.

Lock It - If you are trapped in a location that has no exit, lock yourself and others inside. Use belts, electrical cords, rope or whatever is quickly available to secure the door. Barricade the door with furniture, desks or store displays. Be quiet and stay away from the doors. Do NOT open the doors for others once you are secured. Shooters have been known to pound on the doors pretending to be victims, begging for entry.

Stay put until the police break in to rescue you.

Fight Back! If you are trapped, cannot escape and the shooter makes entry into your location, FIGHT BACK! Immediately ATTACK with chairs, tables, fire extinguishers, books or whatever you have on hand. Everyone in the room must ATTACK, tackle him, bite, claw, stab or choke. If you do not fight back, savagely and with overwhelming force he will methodically kill everyone.

Armed Citizens - If you are armed with a firearm at the scene of an active shooter, your FIRST responsibility is to get your family to safety. Help others along the way if you can but immediately MOVE your own family out of the area first.

Call 911 - ASAP, get on the phone and give 911 the shooters description, location and type of weapon, if known. Give the dispatcher YOUR location and description. Make certain to tell the dispatcher that YOU ARE ARMED. The dispatcher may try and get you to put your weapon away. REFUSE and tell dispatch you will remain armed as long as the threat is active.

Take Cover - Place yourself between the shooter and others that may be with you. Have someone else talk on the phone. Your focus needs to be on the shooter.

Police Confrontations-If you are confronted by the police, keep your weapon muzzle pointed down. Raise your non-shooting hand up near your face in the SURRENDER position. Yell loudly at the officer “I am NOT the shooter”! Do EXACTLY and IMMEDIATELY whatever the officer orders you to do. Expect to be taken down at gunpoint and treated like the bad guy. Be thankful they didn’t shoot you. Don’t take it personal. What actions you took can be sorted out afterwards. If an officer asks you to help, comply and do as you’re told.

Additional thoughts:

1. Carry a good small flashlight whether you carry your gun or not.
2. Carry enough ammo.

3. Carry a working cell phone

4. Know trauma care. That is to say, know how to treat gun shot wounds and other injuries with whatever is on the scene. The police are trained to go straight to the shooter. They will NOT stop to help until after the shooter is stopped. You will be left to help yourself and others.

5. Be a good witness. Be prepared to give a coherent statement to the police about the incident.

6. Keep your mouth shut if you were forced to use deadly force. Only give a generic statement such as “he tried to kill me/us and I was forced to defend myself/us”. Stick to the 5th Amendment until you have a lawyer by your side. Remember, there will most certainly be a civil lawsuit coming. Keep your mouth shut. Protect your own civil rights. If you need to discuss it with someone, tell your lawyer or your clergy. Those are protected communications.

7. When you write your statement look up Utah law [substitute your own location] regarding use of force and include the exact same words that match what action you were forced to take. “I reasonably believed the force was necessary because...”

6. You have the RIGHT to keep and bear arms. You have a RESPONSIBILITY to train and become proficient with your firearm.

USE OF FORCE [research the law in your location]

76-2-402 Utah Code Annotated

Force in defense of person

Reasonably believes force is necessary to prevent death or serious bodily injury:

1. Actions must be reasonable.
2. Force must be necessary.
3. Must show a significant threat of death or serious bodily injury.

A person is not justified:
     (a) If he initially provokes the use of force.
     (b) Is attempting or committing a crime.
     (c) Was the aggressor.

These events happen. They happen in churches, malls, schools and work places. They will happen again. If you are going to carry a firearm, be responsible and BE PREPARED.

Conservative scholars find loophole in wording of Obamacare--could send it back to court or Congress

A pair of conservative scholars believe they might have found a loophole in the wording of the Affordable Care Act which could wind up sending the law back to court, if not Congress.  In their paper, authors Jonathan Adler (Case Western Reserve University) and Michael Cannon (the Cato Institute), contend that the exact language of the law circumscribing the funds used to subsidize the state-run health exchanges now stands to severely undermine the rest of the law in light of how many governors have said they won’t be setting up these marketplaces in their states.

The Clinton Casualties

A "Casualty" is defined as anyone threatened with harm or actually harmed because of their knowledge of and/or involvement in one or more of the Clinton Scandals.

The following is a partial list of a large number of persons who who are presumed to be "Casualties" of the various Clinton scandals. President Clinton had promised his political supporters in Arkansas he will devote a lot of time going after detractors who pursued him on Whitewater and other ethical questions. (USA Today, November 8, 1996). It is a partial list because new addditions are added regularly and the full extent of being associated with Bill Clinton is not completly known.

The accounting of these mysterious deaths began in 1994 when in a letter to congressional leaders, former Rep. William Dannemeyer listed 24 people with some connection to Clinton who had died "under other than natural circumstances" and called for hearings on the matter. Dannemeyer's list of "suspicious deaths" was largely taken from one compiled by Linda Thompson, an Indianapolis lawyer, containing the names of 34 people she believed died suspiciously and who had ties to the Clinton family.

Some of the "Casualties" were openly murdered, but many were killed in such a way so that their deaths could be ruled accidents or suicides. This was especially true if they died in Arkansas where the medical examiners routinely ruled apparent murders as either accidents or suicides when it suited political purposes. In fact, this was so common that it was often referred to as "Arkancide" or "Arkansas Suicide".
"An apparent pattern of violence and intimidation has befallen a number of men and women with ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, their partners in business, law and politics, and people investigating their affairs..." (The Arizona Republic, June 7, 1994)

Who Is Dead Obama Staffer Alex Okrent?

This is not the first homosexual man close to Obama who has died!
Among the members of the gay “DLC” were Obama and TUCC’s choir director, Donald Young, an openly gay man who reportedly had a sexual relationship with Obama. Two other gay members of the church were Larry Bland and Nate Spencer. Young and Bland were brutally murdered, execution style, in late 2007. Bland was murdered on November 17, 2007 and Young on December 24, 2007. The latter was killed by multiple gunshot wounds. Spencer reportedly died on December 26, 2007, official cause of death: “septicemia, pneumonia, and HIV.”

Lawfirm represents both Obama and Facebook

This "Optin App" [see announcement below] was created by a well-known Internet Marketing guru and was a big deal for awhile in 2010-2011. I just happened to see this notice and realized that Perkins Coie is Obama's law firm and Bob Bauer was his White House counsel for a few years too!

See The Obama File for more information.

Facebook Shut Down the Optin App

On November 2nd, 2011. I received a cease and desist order from Carla L. Reyes of the Perkins Coie law firm that represents Facebook. To settle out of court, I had to sign an agreement stating that I would never use Facebook or create/sell any type of app that integrates with Facebook or I'd have to pay a $100,000 fine within 14 days.

Carla said that the Optin App violates Facebook's terms of service for developers. I still don't believe it does. But that's what Facebook says. Below is the specific set of terms that the Optin App "allegedly" violates.

Point II, 6 ("You will not directly or indirectly transfer any data you receive from us, including user data or Facebook User IDs, to (or use such data in connection with) any ad network, ad exchange, data broker, or other advertising or monetization related toolset, even if a user consents to such transfer or use.")? Because the email marketing tool is an "advertising or monetization related toolset"?

There are dozens if not hundreds of apps that do the exact same thing as Optin App - they just haven't been caught. Just like all the marketers who have been shut down by PayPal for selling "make money" products, which is against PayPal's terms of service. We got attention from Facebook because it was the most successful app of it's kind. Just like marketers who make too much money and get shut down by PayPal. See the correlation?
