A Bad Day

By Patrick Van Roy On March 3rd, 2015 at 7:52 pm

Today the United States Government ceased to exist. We are no longer a Democratic Republic, we are a Dictatorship.

Boehner to bring clean DHS bill, as Democrats demand

The Republican House has officially conceded all power to the Royal Presidency.  They vowed they would not impeach, today they finalize that they will no longer govern. Not only are they not an opposition party they just set a dangerous president. They do not oppose the President taking the Congresses Constitutional Powers onto his Office.

By allowing the funding of Obama’s extra-constitutional orders on Illegal Immigrants to proceed with unopposed funding is consent for Obama to do what ever he chooses to do, period.

If he wants to and he does do this deal with Iran he will.  He hasn’t been following the Law for two years since he made the first changes to Obamacare. We elected a Republican Majority in both the House and the Senate to stop him.

What we got instead was a complete collapse of the rule of Law.

We are 2 months into TWO MORE YEARS of a Presidency that is not constrained by Law and is driven Ideologically to correct what HE believes is wrong with our Country. To say we are screwed would be the understatement of the Century.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow at 10:45 EST Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a scheduled speech to Congress about Iran. There has been over six weeks of hand wringing, insulting, attacking and even sabotage over this speech before both houses of Congress. The administration has done more damage to itself by it’s antics than anything Bibi has to say.

The President of the United States is acting Unilaterally negotiating a deal with Iran. As with so many of this Presidents Policies he wants us to wait until it is done before he reveals to us what he has done. In an effort to rally both sides of our political spectrum together as one to stop a deal that will put our lives in as much danger as it will the Israelis. Speaker Boehner actually acted responsible and is doing what needs to be done for the security of the American People.

Iran is the worlds largest supporter of terror. It has has operatives that it has trained and supported of 5 continents. It is literally the head of the snake. It lead and controlled by a Death Cult that believe they bring about the end of times. That the Messiah that will arise will claim and rule the World under Islam and kill or enslave all that do not bow before it.

Under no circumstances can these people be allowed to have the Bomb.

The Prime Minister is uniquely qualified to speak on this topic and is the best chance of trying to creat a United Front in stopping this path of suicide that the Presidents ideology prevents him from even acknowledging exists.

I look forward the Speech and say God Speed Bibi.

Great Words from a Good Man

By Patrick Van Roy On February 15th, 2015 at 6:10 am

I don’t agree with some of this man’s Politics. One thing I do know is he is a Good Man.  He acts to do what he believes is right. He doesn’t just say or sing pretty words. He has spoken truth to power on many occasions, but more importantly he act’s on his beliefs. Those actions can not be denied nor can these Words.

Krauthammer’s analysis of the interview below with Jen Psaki of the State Dept.  Both these interviews are important. I hope you take the time to watch them.

Congress shall make no law

By Patrick Van Roy On February 11th, 2015 at 4:43 pm

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Unless of course you’re a Democrat on the FEC.  These people need to be Tarred and Feathered (just an expression, I’m not calling for it to actually happen)

They once again are trying to take away our Freedom of Speech… this is an outrage!

 

Federal Election Commission to Consider Regulating Online Political Speech

(CNSNews.com) — The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is holding a hearing today to receive public feedback on whether it should create new rules regulating political speech, including political speech on the Internet that one commissioner warned could affect blogs, YouTube videos and even websites like the Drudge Report.

The hearing is a response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC last year, which struck down the FEC’s previous cap on aggregate campaign contributions from a single donor in an election cycle.

Before the decision, individuals were limited to a combined total of $46,200 in contributions to all federal candidates, and $70,800 to federal political action committees and parties.

Individuals are no longer restricted by aggregate limits, which Chief Justice John Roberts said “intrude without justification on a citizen’s ability to exercise ‘the most fundamental First Amendment activities’.”

They may now “contribute up to $2,600 per election to a federal candidate, $10,000 per calendar year to a state party committee, $32,400 per calendar year to a national party committee, and $5,000 per calendar year to a PAC [political action committee],” according to the FEC.

The commission, which consists of three Republican and three Democratic members, last considered such regulations in 2005. However, intense opposition from First Amendment groups resulted in rules that were limited to paid advertisements from political campaigns, parties, and PACs.

This time around, organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation have warned that some Democrats on the commission would like to impose much more burdensome regulations that could serve as the equivalent of spending caps in restricting political speech.

Break out the Popcorn

By Patrick Van Roy On February 7th, 2015 at 4:30 pm

This is the entertainment that I live for.  The House Select Committee on Benghazi announced that both Democrats and Republicans want to schedule the appearance of Hillary Clinton “as soon as possible.”

God I hope the majority of this will be on C-Span.  It should be.  It actually should be on ALL networks overriding regular programing. “What difference does it make” indeed. I want to see the questioning by both sides. I want others to have to watch.  To see who the weasels are.  Make the Circus mandatory to watch. Shine the Lights on them all.  Public exposure to the light of the masses is the best disinfectant for the diseases that infect Politics.

 

Benghazi Committee’s Democrats and Republicans Want to Question Hillary Clinton

A little truth from the head of Gallup

By Patrick Van Roy On February 5th, 2015 at 9:30 pm

The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment + UPDATE
“13 Million jobs were lost, only 3 Million have
have been created”

I ask those who keep saying that the economy has recovered, In what way has it recovered? Watch the New Clip.

by Jim Clifton

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

And it’s a lie that has consequences, because the great American dream is to have a good job, and in recent years, America has failed to deliver that dream more than it has at any time in recent memory. A good job is an individual’s primary identity, their very self-worth, their dignity — it establishes the relationship they have with their friends, community and country. When we fail to deliver a good job that fits a citizen’s talents, training and experience, we are failing the great American dream.

Gallup defines a good job as 30+ hours per week for an organization that provides a regular paycheck. Right now, the U.S. is delivering at a staggeringly low rate of 44%, which is the number of full-time jobs as a percent of the adult population, 18 years and older. We need that to be 50% and a bare minimum of 10 million new, good jobs to replenish America’s middle class.

I hear all the time that “unemployment is greatly reduced, but the people aren’t feeling it.” When the media, talking heads, the White House and Wall Street start reporting the truth — the percent of Americans in good jobs; jobs that are full time and real — then we will quit wondering why Americans aren’t “feeling” something that doesn’t remotely reflect the reality in their lives. And we will also quit wondering what hollowed out the middle class.

Jim Clifton is Chairman and CEO at Gallup.

Update:

Gallup CEO: Number of Full-Time Jobs as Percent of Population Is Lowest It’s Ever Been

Gallup CEO and Chairman Jim Clifton doubled-down on his comments earlier in the week on the misleading Obama unemployment rate.

Obama says the unemployment rate is 5.6% which is very misleading.  Clifton went on America’s Newsroom today to explain the misleading government numbers.

The number of full-time jobs, and that’s what everybody wants, as a percent of the total population, is the lowest it’s ever been… The other thing that is very misleading about that number is the more people that drop out, the better the number gets. In the recession we lost 13 million jobs. Only 3 million have come back. You don’t see that in that number. “

Moderate or rough, becoming very rough later in north.

By Mike Cunningham On January 28th, 2015 at 9:03 am

I have some comforting news for British people; the hugely-subsidised and fairly useless Met. Office, well known for its useless forecasts, huge amounts of taxpayers cash spent on ever-more complex computers which produce ever-more catastrophically-wrong forecasts, and slavish devotion to either Global Warming or Climate Change beliefs; this boondoggle of a forecasting organisation is no longer the worst in the world. It has come under severe pressure to be the worst forecaster ever by the bunch in America known as the National Weather Service, who forecast three feet of snow, hurricane winds and power outages over two-thirds of the North-Eastern United states.

What did New York get, after shutting down all the subways, streets, tunnels and airports? They get moderate snowfalls of six-ten-odd inches, empty streets, businesses closed down, and Mayor de Blasio surveying all of his empire, secure that he had ‘done the right thing’. Philadelphia was promised fourteen inches of snow; they got about two.

American NWS, we salute you!

The meteorologist-in-charge of the Philadelphia forecast office, Gary Szatkowski, posted to Twitter:

My deepest apologies to many key decision makers and so many members of the general public.

You made a lot of tough decisions expecting us to get it right, and we didn’t. Once again, I’m sorry.

Aim, Steady, Squeeze that trigger slowly.

When America wants to see and watch class, it instinctively knows which films to watch. American Sniper was the highest-grossing film over the long weekend with over $200 million, playing in  3,705 theatres across America. N.B.  No free seats were given away at all! A story about an American hero, who served his Country, and his family, and died in truly tragic circumstances, apparently murdered by a man he was trying to help.

American Sniper, a movie celebrating the heroics of a white man (a white man who every institution – television, Hollywood, academia, government, and commercials – in America works overtime to denigrate) has one of the most astounding opening weekends in the history of cinema.

Compare this record with the much-hyped Selma, which hoovered up some 275,000 ‘students’ who were given free tickets to see a film which not many other people wanted to pay to watch, and of course was the critics’ darling and ‘best film’ and all that rubbish. We even got the widest mouth in American politics, that’s the one belonging to Al Sharpton, decrying the fact that there are no black people in the nominations for the Oscars.

Selma? No one cares, save Oprah Winfrey and her coalition of well-connected black businessman in major American cities whose entire fortune is dependent on government-mandated minority contracts.

My choice

If you haven’t figured out who I’m pulling for in the next election than you’re not really paying attention.  2016 is a long way off, but the circus started before Christmas when Jeb started to gobble up as much of the party money as he could.

Here is the platform that I support, read it tell me what you like, what you don’t like. What you believe even if he were to win that there is no chance in hell of getting through.

Ted-Cruz-620x348Ted Cruz is ready to bring big change to Washington—one bill at a time.

Speaking yesterday at Heritage Action’s 2015 Conservative Policy Summit in Washington, D.C., the Texas senator outlined his 10 policy goals for the new Republican-controlled Congress.

In doing so, Cruz stressed the importance of the GOP fulfilling the promises it made last election cycle.

“These are extraordinary times,” he said.
