It’s being reported this morning that President Obama didn’t know the NSA was spying on our allies.

He didn’t know about the Fast & Furious gun-running.

He didn’t know that the IRS was illegally targeting conservatives.

He didn’t know that they needed help in Benghazi.

He didn’t know the NSA was spying on all of us.

He didn’t know that his Obamacare web site wouldn’t work.

He learns of all these things in the paper, just like you and me.

I just want to know who’s in charge.

I just deleted what I planned to post here today.  It ran way too long and I feared you would not stay with me to the end.

But it boils down to this:  Two weeks ago, our elected leaders held a “shutdown” of our government.  It was a fraud, and if not for their willful efforts to make life miserable for us, most of us would not have even noticed it.

All the while these members of our elite political class from both parties made Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee out to be public enemies one and two.  They called them ugly names – terrorists, jihadists, Nazis, wife-beaters and racists.  Even The President of The United States participated.  Those of us who supported the efforts of Cruz and Lee were, by extension, included as targets of these slanderous charges.

All this ugliness was because these two men led a small group of members of Congress who kept their campaign promises and tried to stop Obamacare before it was too late.

Think about that for a minute.  They kept their promises to their constituents and see how they were treated for doing so.

And now we’re living the nightmare of what they tried to stop.  In Washington lingo, it’s a “glitch.”  In the real world, it’s promises broken, it’s ineptitude and arrogance.

President Obama stands in the Rose Garden, puts on his best angry face and proclaims, “No one is more frustrated than me.”  It’s as though he is an innocent bystander who had nothing to do with any of it.  He had no idea.  He was blind-sided.

The big headline at The Drudge Report this morning said 300,000 Dropped From Health Plans In Florida.  That’s 300,000 of my neighbors who believed Obama when he told them they were going to be able to keep their health insurance that just got the rug pulled out from under them.

And it’s happening all across the country.  Real people.  Real lives turned upside down at the whim of lying politicians and their social experiments.

Obamacare was supposed to be all about getting health insurance for a relatively small number of folks who couldn’t afford it.  But it is ensnaring all of us who don’t have connections to the elite class.

The stated goal was never the real goal.  If anyone in Washington truly wanted to fix the problem they would have addressed the root, which is the high cost of health CARE.  But they didn’t.  They addressed insurance instead.  And what they created is simply a complex plan to redistribute the cost, and drive that cost so high that we would be unable to afford it, our current system would collapse and we would clamor for someone to fix it.

Then the real plan would be put in motion – the plan to institute government administered healthcare for us all.

This is what so many of us warned and is the only explanation for what we’re witnessing.  In an honest society where truth is valued, Obama, Reid and Pelosi would be laughed out of office for such a failure.  Sebelius would be in prison.  But we abandoned the truth in favor of politics, so they are indifferent.  This is no big deal.  And that’s because they don’t care if any of this works.  It’s only temporary, a stepping stone on the way to their prize – universal healthcare.

They want to rule, not govern.  They want to regulate us at will.  And positioning themselves between us and our doctors gives them all the power they need to control everything we do.

Cruz and Lee have been marginalized by the complicit media and there is no one left to defend our freedom.  We are alone.  We will now live by the rules we have allowed them to institute.  We didn’t pay attention to what they were doing and their task is just about complete.

We turned out backs.  We were not vigilant about our liberty.  And while we watched American Idol and tweeted about Miley Cyrus, they stole it from us.  The machine they built has been set in motion.  I don’t know how we stop it now.

Early last week, President Obama was asked why he refused to negotiate with Republicans to put a stop to the Obamagovernment shutdown.

He said, “I have said from the start of the year that I’m happy to talk to Republicans about anything related to the budget. There is not a subject that I am not willing to engage in, work on, negotiate and come up with common-sense compromises on.”

He said the Republicans needed to stop standing in the way of an agreement.  “And as soon as that happens, I am eager and ready to sit down and negotiate with Republicans on a whole range of issues.”

Well, the shutdown is over, the Republicans caved and he has gotten what he wanted.

When do the negotiations begin?

Let’s all watch to see when that happens.

We were also told that Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and the other tea party Republicans were fools to stand in the way of an agreement because the shutdown was stealing all the headlines, and people  were not hearing about how bad the rollout of Obamacare was.

They said if not for the news of the shutdown, the media would be talking all day about the disaster the website was and how no one could register, much less get health insurance.

The nightmare of Obamacare would have been the headlines across the nation, if not for those tea party types.

Well, the shutdown is over and off the front page.  And the Obamacare rollout hasn’t gotten any better.

So let’s all watch to see how the media reports on it now.

Let’s all watch to see how many headlines it gets.

The government is open!

Woo hoo.

Happy days are here again as the massive machine that is our federal government gets back in gear.

OCareFlowChart

President Obama and the other members of the progressive ruling class are free again to pretend they support our soldiers and veterans.  They can continue to impugn the character and motives of conservative lawmakers, as they borrow even more money in the name of our grandchildren and spend us into ruin and collapse.

They can lay claim to being the winners.  The losers of course, are the taxpayers – the average folks just trying to get by.  They’ll get no relief and will just end up on the hook for more and more as the debt grows larger and larger.

John McCain and the other Republicans who attacked Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul are the cowards.  They claim to be conservatives but were too afraid to go up against that giant government machine in the name of the people who elected them.

The fools?  They are mostly the mainstream media – the water boys and cheerleaders for Team Obama, who don’t yet realize they are the useful idiots.  And they are those who still believe the media is telling them the truth, who believe that government can solve all their problems and are grateful this morning that members of Congress have stopped fighting.  They believe the absence of conflict signals everything is just fine.

The conservatives, the dreaded tea party members of Congress, claim they have no intention of standing down, that they plan to continue the fight.  That’s admirable, but how do they win?  They are a minority, surrounded by life-long political animals who are living the dream and have demonstrated that they are ready to go to any length to squash anyone who tries to ruin it for them.

So celebrate!  Eat, drink and be merry!  Like it or not, the government is back in business!

Oh, and next week?  Amnesty of course!  There’s no such thing as illegal in Washington anymore, no one is held to account for their actions, and it appears there’s not a thing to be done to change that.

The giant machine of government, that rolls along devouring its host, is unstoppable.

Remember this classic scene from Private Benjamin?

Poor Judy.  She “did join the army.”  But she “joined a different army.”  She “joined the one with the condos and the private rooms.”  Her recruiter painted a rosy picture of the Army.  He lied to her, and she signed on the dotted line.

She ended up scrubbing the latrine with her toothbrush.

Our recruiter painted a rosy picture of Obamacare.

And in spite of warnings, a lot of people believed him and signed on the dotted line.  They re-elected him.

But we didn’t get that wonderful, efficient, low-cost healthcare and we haven’t seen increased wages and our economy isn’t getting better.

Millions of Americans remain unemployed and millions more are now working part-time jobs.  They are getting notices that their health insurance, which they like and want to keep, is being dropped.  Or their premiums and deductibles are being raised out of their reach.

Hospitals are laying off staff.  Doctors are getting out of the profession.    Business owners are running scared.  Our economy is in the tank, we are in debt so deep that my granddaughter will be paying today’s bills and our elected leaders demand the authority to borrow even more.

And those of us still fighting to get us out from under Obamacare before it’s too late are labeled arsonists, anarchists, terrorists, wife-beaters and Confederate soldiers.

Some are beginning to see the truth, but it looks like too little, too late.  It appears that Obamacare is here to stay.

So break out your toothbrushes.  You’re not getting the condos and the private rooms.

Get on your knees and start scrubbing.  We’re all Private Benjamin now.

Hundreds of veterans and their friends went to Washington this weekend.  Unlike the illegal aliens who were welcomed to the National Mall last week with open arms, the veterans were greeted by police in riot gear, armored vehicles and even helicopters to keep an eye on them.

Complaining that they didn’t want to be used by politicians as political chess pieces, the veterans removed the barriers around our memorials, specifically the WWII Memorial.

They carried the barricades up 17th Street and deposited them in front of the White House.

FOX News is reporting that the barricades are back up again this morning, re-erected by Park Service personnel that we’re told we cannot afford.

These people still need to be kept out of our nation’s capital.

BarVetsWchairsBarWCSign

I want to know who gave this order to put the barricades back up.

I want to know why the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, doesn’t order a stop to this.

Don’t you?

Godwin’s Law no longer applies, not in Obama’s America, not when average Americans are talking about the “Gestapo tactics” of federal police.

More stories of the vengeance being served up for Americans surface every day.  Yesterday we learned of a group of seniors on a bus tour to Yellowstone being held as prisoners in their hotel.  Armed Park Police forbid they go outside.  They stood guard at the doors.  They barricaded Old Faithful.  They forbid the seniors from taking pictures, saying they could not do that as it was “recreating” and that is not permitted on public land during a government shutdown.

Some of the foreign tourists on the trip thought they were under arrest.  Imagine that!  Visitors from other countries coming to The Land of The Free thought they were under arrest by our federal government.

The tour guide described the behavior of the Park Police as “Gestapo tactics.”

If you haven’t yet seen the full story, read it here.

But perhaps the worst story yet in all this is the news that the United States of America will not pay death benefits to the families of five soldiers killed during our phony government shutdown.  Congress is blaming the Defense Dept. and they, of course, are blaming Congress.

I blame the Commander-In-Chief.

We’ve all watched as President Obama re-writes laws on regular basis with the stroke of his pen.  It would take one phone call from him and the families of our dead soldiers would be taken care of.

But he hasn’t picked up the phone.

It costs money to erect barricades all over Washington and all around the country.  It costs money to have armed agents of the federal government guard these newly off-limit areas.  Money we’re told we don’t have.  Which is it?

And while our veterans and average American citizens are not welcome in our nation’s capital, Nancy Pelosi specifically thanked Obama for opening up the Mall for a rally for illegal aliens yesterday.

IllegalRallyStage

He picked up the phone for that.

All this is wearing on America.  People who work hard and play by the rules don’t like what’s going on.  And their displeasure with Washington politicians goes back far past this current shutdown.  A couple of years ago all that anger manifested in the Tea Party rallies.  These were peaceful gatherings.

On Friday, we’re expecting thousands of truckers to descend on Washington for the “Truckers Ride for the Constitution.”  The drivers say they will clog the beltway, tying up traffic there for three days.  While this certainly isn’t violent, it’s far more active and disruptive than standing around holding a sign for a few hours.

What then?  Do the protests continue to escalate?  What comes next?

More importantly, is this the objective of our president and his advisors?  Does he want Americans to be so angry at their government?

It certainly appears that way, doesn’t it?

If not, why all the poking?  Why all the shoving?  Why push Americans around and treat them so badly that “Gestapo tactics” gets tossed out by a tour bus driver and a bunch of senior citizens?  Why the ongoing effort to so publicly disrespect our soldiers and veterans?

We are in some uncharted territory here, folks.  Tread lightly.  Watch your back.  Watch out for each other.  I think we’re in for a very bumpy ride.  And it will be easy to abandon our principles and simply fall into line.  But the cost of that easy out will be paid with our liberty.

Remember that when the truth is on your side, you hold the real power.  Stay focused on that truth and when it’s all over, we win.  And win we must.  The stakes are just too high.
