The Federal Government is not Working For Us, But Against Us

Freedom Outpost
For the last six years, our governmental policies have turned against the people they are supposed to serve. Since Obama became president, “we the people” are getting hosed big time. Countless new regulations that were sold as a quick fix to all our woes, are instead a costly labyrinth of bureaucratic red tape. Instead of being less expensive, they are so overpriced that they really aren’t worth what we are being forced to pay; not forgetting that thousands and thousands of new government personnel that have been hired, but the money that some of these agencies is wasting is really criminal. Our government is actually growing at a faster rate than our beleaguered economy can sustain. And really, what benefits are American citizens really getting, besides a more costly infrastructure that continuously feeds on the American taxpayer?

We are told by liberals and Democrats that we need more laws, more regulations and, of course, more money through higher taxes, to run the whole thing. That’s the joke. It never gets more efficient and it never gets less expensive, but liberals and Democrats tell us that without these new costly regulations and services the entire infrastructure will come crashing down around us and we’ll all be thrown back into the dark ages.

It seems to me that the government shouldn’t be in the business of being in business.

Realistically, just what is the government supposed to do, other than deliver the mail, fill in the pot holes in the roads and provide for the common defense? I really don’t see where it is necessary for governmental agencies like the IRS, the BLM, the USDA and even the Postal Service to solicit for and acquire arms and ammunition. What are they getting ready for?

Why Obama fails and succeeds

gty_obama_trayvon_LARGE

Family Security Matters

Barack Obama fails because of the content of his character. He is amoral, lacking an ability to judge himself or his actions by any value or virtue. In his mind, Obama is good not because he is honest or wise; Obama is good because he is Obama. The implicit pattern of all his self-appraisals is: “It’s good because I like it”-“It’s right because I did it”-“It’s true because I want it to be true.”

It is not an expression of accomplishment, pride or self-esteem, but reveals the presence of a vacuum; a stagnant, arrested mentality matching his faith in the stagnant, arrested policies of modern American far-left liberalism.

An Obama-Caused Border Disaster

National Review

It is a grave error to view the swarming of illegal aliens across our southern border as anything other than a challenge to our sovereignty — a challenge abetted, rather than repulsed, by a president who vows to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” The challenge brings into sharp relief a question I’ve repeatedly pressed (see, e.g., here, here, here, and here): If the states cannot or will not defend themselves, are they still, in any real sense, sovereign?

As expected, the president’s mainstream-media allies portray Obama as a man struggling to manage a crisis beyond his control, a crisis their thin and exhausted playbook instructs them to blame on George W. Bush. Nonsense.

Obama: No Consequences for Treason and America’s Final Destruction

Gulag Bound

This is a column I had hoped I’d never have to write.

But, the USA has failed itself…totally. It‘s elected leaders offer nothing but, the most limited of lip-service to chastise the traitor occupying the people’s White House and, certainly, have done nothing–whatsoever–to stop him.

Our true military leaders have been replaced with a new batch who will pledge their allegiance to Obama and the United Nations–not the United States–as the body to which they pledge their allegiance. Some of our best and brightest US Captains–still in war…still in harm’s way…and still on the front lines–are now receiving their “pink slips” on the battlefield advising them that when they return, Obama will have no further use for them and they’ll have to find a job…elsewhere. Obama is still actively purging our military of real leadership and summarily dismantling it.

While ISIS/ISIL is wreaking bloody havoc and mayhem on Iraq (and soon the rest of the Middle East and USA) and wars (and rumors of even bigger wars) are breaking out in myriad places Obama is gutting what was left of the US military. He is, also, in the process of replacing US citizens with illegal aliens, Latin gang members (including MS-13), Islamic terrorists (ISIS/ISIL has been confirmed as in the USA), Sinaloa drug and human trafficking cartel members and all manner of other illegals who will suck dry what was left of the USA. Obama destroyed our economy–by design–and is now ensuring that it will not come back.

Obama is now taking over all jurisdiction and authority of the US States. He is sending the illegal alien invaders–via his DHS–to multiple locations in multiple States and giving no information as to how many of them there are, what the demographics of the sent invaders are and where they’re being sent. The Obama cabal refuses to tell State governors who is being sent where, and simply assuming the powers of the ObamaGov over all of the States. Obama and his syndicate are overloading everything in the US system to ensure its collapse and complete dissolution. Thus far, we have done nothing substantial to stop this traitor–and Congress and our court system haven’t even tried to do so or have openly supported our demise–who is now overtly (for all to see and hear) hammering the final nails in America’s coffin…and soon will our own.

For those reading this information for the and being shocked for the first time…welcome to the club. We have, however, been warning you about the Obama creature since before his first election to the Office of POTUS. Unfortunately, it is likely now too late to do anything but attempt to provide for your survival and that of your loved ones. As far as the eye can see, we appear to have no leadership…anywhere. This is what happens when a country–despite being advised over and over again–ignores the obvious and does nothing to end its leaders’ tyrannies. This is what happens when countries come to an end. Unless the Obama syndicate members are physically removed from our White House…they will never leave and will begin the bloodbath against us very soon now.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”
–Ephesians 6:10-23

The Jihadist in the White House

Family Security Matters

Unknown to each other, President Barack Obama and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas walk into a bar, and meet, well, at the bar. Obama is there for a secret Marlboro and his favorite martini. Abbas is there to escape Hamas gunmen after his head and maybe order a beer with lemonade. After sitting on adjoining stools and exchanging “high fives” “fist-bumps,” and playing a half-round of scissors-paper-rock, they notice each other’s lapel pins.

Abbas is wearing one of the Palestinian flag. Obama is wearing a “Hope and Change” pin, which he alternates with an alleged American flag pin with diagonal red and white stripes. Or no pin at all.

Abbas cheerfully offers to trade pins with Obama. Obama says that’s a great idea. Abbas fixes the Hope and Change pin to his lapel, and Obama fixes the Palestinian one to his lapel. Then they laugh and exclaim together, “Now we are truly on the same side!”

And together they retort, “Haven’t we always been?” They laugh again in the knowledge that they’re in such perfect sync.

That’s the punch line. Something of a downer, isn’t it? Not funny at all?

Nevertheless, it’s true.

Now, Barack Obama is a jihadist on many fronts: In his domestic policies, and in his foreign policies. For example, he is now proposing that Congress appropriate $3.7 billion in “humanitarian” aid for sub rosa amnesty to thousands of illegal immigrants who have been bussed up to the U.S./Mexican border. About 95% of this aid will not go directly to the illegals, but to federal agencies. The Washington Post’s David Nakamura and Wesley Lowery, in their July 8th article, “White House requests $3.7 billion in emergency funds for border crisis,” noted that this exorbitant amount won’t benefit the illegals, but bureaucracies, foreign and domestic:

Restraining Order Filed Against Miss. GOP

True the vote

Via The Hill

A conservative election-watching organization has filed a motion for a restraining order against the Mississippi Republican Party, declaring it has evidence of tampering in runoff records.

True the Vote, which filed the motion with the Jackson Division of the U.S. District Court on Wednesday, claims it has “dozens of full detailed affidavit reports” detailing incidences of vote tampering. The alleged misconduct includes “destruction of voters’ absentee ballot applications and mandatory envelopes, illegal alteration of poll books, cross-over and double voting, absentee ballots marked ‘Accepted’ but unopened.”

“Defendant county commissioners have continued to violate federal law by preventing access to election records. Now, we think we know why,” True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht said in a statement.

“If the affidavits we now have regarding the destruction of election documents and other similarly stunning findings are true, then no Mississippian, no American, can trust the results of this election.”

Mississippi GOP Chairman Joe Nosef dismissed the complaint, saying in a statement that the group “continues in its attempts to make a mockery of our legal system.”

“While their legal filings literally make no claim at all against the MSGOP, their public statements indicate otherwise in an effort to mislead Mississippi voters,” he said.

Nosef mentioned True the Vote’s initial lawsuit against the Mississippi secretary of State and the Mississippi GOP, which called for immediate access to unredacted election records, as further evidence of its “mockery.”

He also said the state party now plans to take action against the group.

“We will not only defend ourselves but will seek sanctions against every single plaintiff because of this frivolous litigation brought against the MSGOP,” Nosef said.

Though Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) was declared winner of the race two weeks ago, leading by 7,667 votes, his primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel, has not conceded and has been collecting evidence to challenge the results of the election in court.

The ongoing saga has drawn the attention and resources of a number of national conservative figures and groups supportive of McDaniel. The Senate Conservatives Fund contributed $70,000 to his legal fund to contest the results earlier this week, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called for an investigation into the election.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the Missouri Republican Party called on Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to create a task force to investigate what he labeled “racially divisive ads and robocalls,” which he said he was concerned were connected to Republican National Committee member Henry Barbour.

Lois Lerner Printed Out Infamous Lost Emails

Freedom Outpost

After being told that Lois Lerner’s computer, along with several others, crashed and that emails from her could not be retrieved, even though there was an independent email backup company employeed by the Internal Revenue Service (fired after the fact), we come to find out that Ms. “I’ve done nothing wrong, but plead the Fifth” Lerner actually printed out some of those alleged missing emails..

According to her attorney Bill Taylor, she claimed not to have printed out and filed her emails as she is required to do, according to the Federal Records Act. Say it isn’t so! Another Obama minion has broken the law! So far that’s at least Eric Holder and Kathleen Sebelius that Lerner joins in this respect.

Chairman of the House Oversight and Governement Reform Committee Darrell Issa (R-CA) said, “The Federal Records Act requires agencies to make and preserve records of agency decisions, policies, and essential transactions, and to take steps to safeguard against the loss of agency records.”

According to the IRS website:

The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media. Emails are records when they are: Created or received in the transaction of agency business; Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities; or Valuable because of the information they contain.

If you create or receive email messages during the course of your daily work, you are responsible for ensuring that you manage them properly. The Treasury Department’s current email policy requires emails and attachments that meet the definition of a federal record be added to the organization’s files by printing them (including the essential transmission data) and filing them with related paper records. If transmission and receipt data are not printed by the email system, annotate the paper copy.

Please note that maintaining a copy of an email or its attachments within the IRS email MS Outlook application does not meet the requirements of maintaining an official record. Therefore, print and file email and its attachments if they are either permanent records or if they relate to a specific case.
