Congress expands AmeriCorps volunteer program

I wrote about it HERE last week.

As soon as the "Chief Occupier" returns from making friends with the European Socialist he will sign the bill to begin the Youth Corp which has too much resemblance to Germany 1938 Youth Corp.

The House voted 275-149 Tuesday for a $5.7 billion bill that triples positions in the Clinton-era AmeriCorps (Remember now , it’s all for the good of the children.) program, its largest expansion since the agency's creation in 1993, and establishes a fund to help nonprofit organizations recruit and manage more volunteers.

Congress was sending the bill to President Barack Obama, who often cites his years as a Chicago community organizer for giving him his political start. Obama has made national service programs a high priority. His budget proposal calls for more than $1.1 billion for the programs, an increase of more than $210 million. (Guess where the funding is coming from?? A Senate defense committee chairman says Pentagon budget will include large, painful cuts. Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin said Tuesday that major program cuts will not be pushed off until the 2011 budget.)

The bill provides for gradually increasing the size of AmeriCorps to 250,000 enrollees over eight years.( Sounds to me like the “chief occupier” is planning on staying for awhile)

We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." Barack Obama

Brave New World: "A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned... to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers."Aldous Huxley


Glenn Beck, formerly with CNN Headline News and self made, self educated bull dog went after Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal over the AIG situation and nailed the guy to the wall.

It seems Blumenthal underestimated Beck and his oft times court room tactics which he uses to make his very blunt points with liberals and others who seem to want to take control of citizens legal rights.

Here is what Beck had to say in his interview with Blumenthal on Monday:

"Look, you know what you have done, know what you have done?" Beck said. "You have - you are an insult to George Washington, sir. George Washington made it very clear that we are a respecter of laws, not of men. For your own political gain, you have decided to go after these people at AIG because it is a popular thing."

"And while I may agree with you that it is obscene, I would like to know, is not what's right as a rule of thumb - not what makes us feel good," Beck continued. "You, sir, are to protect people and, and to stand for the law in Connecticut, so, again, I ask you, sir - what law gave you the right to go after them? What law did they break?"

Blumenthal claimed the AIG executives were "undeserving" of the bonuses. Blumenthal also pointed out the bonuses paid out were to increase next year. However, Beck pressed Blumenthal on the legality of that and Blumenthal came up blank in this exchange:

BECK: Is that against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, it is against public policy. And it is unsanctioned by law.

BECK: Is that against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: It should be against the law.

BECK: Is it against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: It's against the public policy and against the taxpayer...In my view it is unrequired by law.

BECK: It is a yes or no question. Counselor, it is a yes or no question. Is it against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: It is not against the law and I have never said that it is against the law, and I have never said that we would bring an action.

BECK: Then you know what you should do? You should enforce the law. You shouldn't use your bully pulpit to gain popularity.

"You are twisting it," Beck said. "It has everything to do with the excuse that AIG used to say we had to do that. And you're exactly right - it has nothing to do with that. But that has nothing to do with the little vampire fangs that you all of a sudden sprouted and tried to grab on to - to make yourself, you and Andrew Cuomo, tried to make yourselves the king of the world, and look at me - I'm the savior here. I'm going to help everybody, the little people. All you're doing is trying to make yourself look good in a populist move. I think it's wrong."

And now I am wondering what he would have to say about the Occupier in Chief’s power play with GM where in the first time in history or at least recorded history of this country a President has basically removed the head of a corporation.

What law has the CEO of GM broken?

What part of the Constitution does the Chief Occupier use to usurp the authority of the Board of Directors and stock holders of GM to force the resignation of the CEO of GM?

Where in the Constitution can the One demand that Chrysler and GM run the company the way he, the Almighty One commands?

Perhaps Beck would tell the Occupier of the WH that he too is using the “bully pulpit” to gain popularity. That I’d love to hear and see.

We are going to put an end to the notion that the American taxpayer exists to fund the federal government.

The G-20,The Witch Hunt, But Where Are the Solutions?

The G-20 Summit is set to begin in a few days in London and the usual suspects who appear from the cracks in the walk ways and the sewer drains along the streets are already marching in the streets for what ever agenda they may represent. Meanwhile the so called leaders are plotting and planning ways to enhance their standing in the world community and in the eyes of the voters back home but yet there is more happening than meets the eye. The story, which never gets reported it seems, is happening.

It’s happening away from the screaming malcontents who use any global gathering to pimp their latest gripe. It’s happening in our homes and suburbs and workplaces, in cafes and playgrounds, places people gather and talk. It is there too on the streets of London. One guy there must have been listening to Obama ( or one could fill in that blank with the name Rudd, from Australia or Brown, from the UK and it would be the same song). He said the markets failed causing untold damage, the crisis of all crisis. Another one said that capitalism had rewarded a tiny few, and left the vast majority of people worse off. Try telling that to the millions lifted out of poverty across the world by trade and commerce conducted through free markets. Evidently enough drank that kool aide to vote in the Chief Occupier who continues to sing that same old song day in and day out but to them it is government who creates the wealth rather than business.

People who are sensible but anxious about the future have been fed a fairy tale of heroes and villains. The heroes are the politicians meeting in London to work out how to deal with the greedy corporate villains. Politicians , including those gathering in London , bear much of the blame for stoking in the community an irrational anger against capitalism. They sought out scapegoats because it made for an easy political narrative they could sell in 15 second sound-bites. Remember the quote, "ever let a good crisis go to waste"? What a perfect setting for such sound bites. Every good witch hunt needs a witch and today’s witches are found on Wall Street and in corporate offices around the globe. Suspicions are now raised about anyone who has earned a bit more than what some see as a reasonable amount of money from the free market. Corporate bosses and bankers are now presumed guilty of excess. Rogues and crooks run riot in the free market according to the yarn. Why bother trying to explain their own role in the fiasco, the loose monetary policies of the US fed, or the bad laws emanating from Congress that mandated loans to those who could not afford them when you can stick to a simple tale of villains on Wall Street?

Witness the hoopla over the US$165 million payouts to employees at AIG, a firm that received a $US100 billion bailout. Whatever the rights and wrongs of those payments, nothing warrants what followed. US Senator Charles Grassley suggested that AIG executives ought to “follow the Japanese model ... resign, or go commit suicide”. AIG staff have now been warned to travel in pairs, not wear the company logo, AIG employees have received death threats and a union backed campaign and ACORN now run bus tours of AIG houses in Connecticut.

But here’s the hard fact, the place where the rubber meets the road and spin meets reality. Spinning a flimsy narrative where the politicians play heroes won’t wash. After feeding the anger at Wall Street greed, the Obama administration was forced to pull back last week when it announced its plan to deal with toxic debt. It turns out that the plan will only work with the support of Wall Street and those in capitalism central who pursue profit and are driven by greed. Now it turns out that greed will drive Obama’s plan to rid the banking industry of toxic debt. Indeed, no government anywhere will be able to solve the current financial crisis without those participants politicians have spent months demonizing as villains. Given that reality, perhaps along side the banners that read “Climate Emergency,” “Gaza: End the Blockade,” “Planet Before Profit,” “We Won’t Pay for Their Crisis,” and “Jobs not Bombs”, some brave soul should take to the streets of London with a banner that says “Thank God for capitalism after all”.

War on CEOs Won't Fix Economy: Something this administration and Congress should learn

I ran across an article in The Australian a few days ago and it sounded so familiar to the occurrences in the US in reference to how Congress and this administration have chosen to treat CEO’s and paint them all with a broad brush in an attempt to make them out to be as irresponsible as a very few. Of course the Democrats and this administration will find this to be of little interest since it would destroy the only defense they have against incompetence, outright corruption and the cover up of both. It seems the Rudd government in Australia is having the same problems and like their counterparts here in the US are desperately seeking someone to blame thus they have declared war on CEO’s just as has been done here in the States. Meanwhile in this country the “tax evader in chief” of the Treasury is seeking the power to seize private corporations that he deems in danger because of in his estimation of the evil CEO’s who are paid waaaaaay too much according to his thinking and the thinking of this administration.

The legislators and leaders of both countries have seemingly forgotten that executive remuneration should be transparent to shareholders. Directors should be accountable for the decisions they make on behalf of shareholders, including executive remuneration. If the Government thinks there is lack of transparency to shareholders in executive remuneration arrangements, this is a failure of its corporate regulatory framework, which it should amend not seize the corporation on pretense of it being in danger.

The problem with the Government is that it is not motivated by concerns about transparency. It is another childish attempt to blame our economic problems on executive greed. In the case of the US it was the failed attempt to steer the blame for AIG bonuses being paid away from corrupt politicians, namely Chris Dodd and the Treasury ‘s incompetent and corrupt Tax evader in chief among other cover ups and failures they have been involved with including Fannie and Fred’s failure which of course is in great part due to Barney’s attempt to defend the policies set forth under Carter and extended under Clinton and bullied through by Frank and his gang. But that is irrelevant according to them. It is all the fault of greedy CEO’s.

By linking executive remuneration to class war and broader economic problems, Swan is following in Kevin Rudd's ideological footsteps. Just as this administration and Congress who asserts that "the largesse of the last decade has been a slap in the face of many working people" and that many recent payments to executives have been viewed as obscene. It is divide and conquer pure and simple. While the public has every right to be outraged by the bailouts and the AIG fiasco among others is an entirely different situation. These outrageous payments involved taxpayer funds as part of government-orchestrated bailouts. But, government bailouts aside, whether an executive's remuneration is considered obscene by the community is largely irrelevant to the directors and shareholders of the company. The responsibility of company directors is to act in their shareholders' interest.

It may be true that many people are angry about executive salaries but that doesn't provide grounds for the Government to engage in a general attack on chief executives and the corporate sector. This is particularly unhelpful at a time when the Government should be strengthening business confidence which certainly this administration has not attempted to do but instead has done everything within its power to weaken this confidence all in the name of Never let a crisis go to waste”—White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

This administration and it’s “economic clueless guru’s” seems to think the interests of the broader community and the individual shareholder are one and the same. They are not. Shareholders want their companies to do well. Often this is at the expense of other companies and their shareholders. The community, on the other hand, wants the best and cheapest products. Workers want their firm to survive and provide job security. Their job security and wages, despite union attempts to take wages out of competition is often at the expense of either profits or competition.. These are the fundamental tensions in the economic system. It is this creative destruction that provides our enviable standard of living. The sooner the Government wakes up to this, the better off we all will be.

Company directors must secure the best executive team to guarantee the prosperity of the firm. The challenge for directors is to ensure that remuneration packages align the interests of management with that of the shareholders. This is not easy. A whole body of economics has developed around resolving this agency problem. The core concern is that management can capture company directors and operate the company in their interest rather than shareholders' interest. When this happens, management is in a position to extract an economic rent from the company, reflected in excessive executive compensation. Maximizing executive compensation, not shareholder value, becomes the focus of the company. This is of little comfort to shareholders. The directors failed to provide executive incentives that balanced the short-term remuneration objectives of executives with a longer-term interest of shareholders. Better-quality directors, not government regulation, are the solution to this problem. Recent research suggests that directors would achieve better performance from executives by altering remuneration packages to place greater emphasis on a combination of share price and earnings performance.

But even with the best endeavors of the most diligent directors there is no guarantee that companies won't fail, which is what generates the higher rewards of those that succeed.

Highly skilled executives command large salaries. Just because governments and sections of the community believe these salaries to be excessive or obscene doesn't mean they are wrong. Morality has nothing to do with it.

Many in the community regard the salaries of Hollywood actors and sports stars as obscene. That doesn't mean the government should hold an inquiry or attempt to regulate them. Oh but they have tried this earlier and no one seems to ask how that worked for them so now it’s on to warfare on corporate Exec.

One of the most misleading ways of assessing executive salaries is by comparing them with the pay of workers which has been a favorite of the Democrats and even more so in this class warfare administration claiming only to want to level the playing field. The Economist claims that in 1980 the average pay for chief executives in the biggest companies in the US was about 40 times that of an average production worker. In 1999, it had increased to about 85 times and was estimated to be more than 400 times during the recent asset price bubble. This may be true, but it is irrelevant. The market for chief executives is not the same as the market for production workers but once again that factoid is beyond the scope of the “progressive mindset” and is used as a tool and calling card for income redistribution in the name of leveling the playing field.

Many factors explain the growth of executive salaries and the relative decline of production workers' salaries, including their relative supply and demand. Executive remuneration cannot be effectively regulated by governments. It would be foolish to try but then don’t try telling the current administration and is clueless economic advisors nor Congress such. Evil Exec’s and their huge remuneration packages must be controlled and only government can do that …well according to them and we know what their agenda is.

More of the Ridiculous

Here comes the orator! With his flood of words, and his drop of reason." --Benjamin Franklin

A few of the more ridiculous comments flowing from the DC Swamp this week that will certainly create a chuckle.

Lies and statistics: "[I]n this budget, we have made the tough choices necessary to cut our deficit in half by the end of my first term -- even under the most pessimistic estimates." --President Barack Obama, who doubled the budget deficit before he could halve it

Says the pot to the kettle: "[O]ne of the things that I'm trying to break is a pattern in Washington where everybody is always looking for somebody else to blame." --Barack Obama
Mentally challenged: "I bowled a 129. ... It's like -- it was like Special Olympics or something." --Barack Obama making fun of the Special Olympics on "The Tonight Show"

Pick socialism: "[W]e need not choose between a chaotic and unforgiving capitalism and an oppressive government-run economy. That is a false choice that will not serve our people or any people." --Barack Obama

Regulatory Commissars: "I think the most important thing that we can do is make sure that we put in a bunch of financial regulatory mechanisms to prevent companies like an AIG holding the rest of us hostage. Because that's- ahh- that's the real problem." --Barack Obama

This week's "Quid Pro Homo" Award: "At some point, [the Defense of Marriage Act] is going to have to go to the United States Supreme Court. I wouldn't want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court." --Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), an open homosexual **Scalia has more than one vote?

Global warmism: "When we talk about drilling, the new thing we have to think about is the Arctic. There is a dangerous irony occurring. We are drilling, burning oil, sending CO2 up into the atmosphere, creating global warming -- and it's melting the Arctic making it possible for people to drill. Now there is this gold rush to start punching oil wells in a place we just desecrated because of global warming. That's one place we have to get a new moratorium where there hasn't been one before, because there has always been ice there before." --Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA)

Vocabulary police: "This Administration prefers to avoid using the term 'Long War' or 'Global War on Terror' [GWOT]. Please use 'Overseas Contingency Operation.'" --email from Dave Riedel of the Office of Security Review

And the Winner is:

"The kids love to say SheetzuCacaPoopoo. Well, that was the key. But, the book is really about Barack Obama. Okay? Let me explain. ... The dog -- Max is in trouble. They send him to obedience school, okay? When he's in obedience school is when he becomes Barack. He becomes a community organizer. And he organizes the big dogs around the little dogs. 'Cause at first, the big dogs, also known as the Republicans, don't like him. See? And so, he finds ways, pragmatically, to help the big dogs. ... They can reach itches for them. They can go underneath to get to spots. They can scare the cats away. And so, he becomes popular. And everybody loves each other. ... It's all about pragmatism and change, and trying to find a solution in your situation, which is Barack Obama." --Joy Behar of "The View" promoting her new children's book **Well, SheetzuCacaPoopoo IS the perfect name...

HR 1388 - Creating the National Service Act

This bill passed the House by a vote of 321-105. It seems that many so-called Republicans voted for the bill; after all, it is for the “youth.” This is the same message that was used in Germany in the late 20s and 30s. Remember that Germany was in a recession that looked as if it would develop into a depression. We know from history that it did, but in Europe it was not as long lasting as it was in the US, except in Germany where the government began to be involved, just as in the US. Remember that Hitler was elected by less than 30% of the population of Germany and recall that Obama was elected by approximately 22.62% of the Census Bureau's 2008 estimate of United States population. Just as such programs were promised in the 1930s by the National Socialist Party, the same promises were made by the Democrat Party candidate in 2008. German Christians believed Hitler would be good for their economy. (Twelve years later, Germany was a smoldering ruin.) At the time Hitler was elected, Germany had a constitution like that of the U.S. The laws were changed by the parliament (Reichstag) after Hitler took control. BY LAW children were conscripted into the Hitler Youth “volunteer education programs,” LIKE THE program which passed in the U.S. House yesterday.

Do you have a choice whether to allow your child to participate in Obama’s “volunteer” reeducation camps? Not if you read the fine print! If any American child does not participate in Obama’s reeducation and “volunteerism program,” they will not be able to get a high school diploma. The comparisons are too close to call this “just a coincidence” and too real to just brush off as scare tactics. HR 388 is allowing this administration to take this country onto dangerous ground as if we were not already treading there. The Senate is considering the bill and will probably offer a different version but one that is just as dangerous as this. Contact all your Senators and SCREAM at them to STOP this nonsense!

If your Congressperson’s name is on this list, they need to be removed ASAP. You need to call and not just speak but YELL BLOODY MURDER as to why they voted for such a tomfoolery bill. Are they socialist? Nazi? Don’t they realize this is the opening door for the Brownshirts of Obama to take over and control the actions of each individual in this country? (They are now calling themselves Blueshirts in the operation Allegiance to Obama campaign. It sounds too much like the allegiance to Hitler in the 30s and 40s.) A full list of those who voted yea, nay, or abstained are listed HERE.

This is what I had to say about the subject in October of 2008 when the Chief Occupier was talking about his glorious plans for this program. Don’t say you were not warned! The full content of the blog is HERE.

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!

Read about Obama’s Youth education programs from zero upwards.

He spoke of forming a a "civilian national security force" that would be as powerful, strong and well-funded as the half-trillion dollar United States Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force have mysteriously disappeared from published transcripts of the speech.

In the comments, Obama confirmed the U.S. "cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set."

Suddenly the quote disappeared from the transcripts and in it’s place appeared some watered down but yet as equally important statements that fit well with the plans that were put forth in 1935: We'll call on Americans to join an Energy Corps to conduct renewable energy and environmental cleanup projects in their neighborhoods. And we'll use technology to connect people to service. We'll expand USA Freedom Corps to create an online network where Americans can browse opportunities to volunteer. You'll be able to search by category, time commitment, and skill sets; you'll be able to rate service opportunities, build service networks, and create your own service pages to track your hours and activities. This will empower more Americans to craft their own service agenda, and make their own change from the bottom up. Of course, there was no such advanced technology in 1935, but there was the Speaker Corp, the Land Service, etc., as you will read below.

Adolf Hitler, speech at the Reichsparteitag, 1935—
these facts have been established:

The Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth), the NAZI party's youth movement, indoctrinated German youth to perpetuate the "1,000 year Reich." The Hitler Youth movement emphasized activism, physical training, NAZI ideology, especially nationalism and racial concepts, and absolute obedience to Hitler and the NAZI Party. Indoctrinating children in National Socialist ideology was a key goal of the NAZI Party. Once Hitler assumed control over the German state, he used the government to make the Hitler Youth the country's all encompasing youth movement. Hitler and other NAZI leaders saw the indoctrination of young Germans as of critical importance. In the same year that they took power, the NAZIs organized German youth organizations into two branches of the Hitler Youth (Hitler Jugen), one branch for boys and one for girls. Membership was eventually made compulsory and all boys had to report to a neigborhood office to have his racial background checked and be registered for membership. There was then a typically elaborate introduction ceremony on the Füherer's birthday.

An important part of the Hitler Youth system was authority given to the members. The Hitler Youth made a point that "youth must be led by youth." This was an important part of the Hitler Youth ethos, meant to cultivate the image of unsullied German youth rejecting the failed old leaders and their failed policies and principles. In fact, boys and girls were given leadership positions. The slogan, however, was misleading. The boys were incouraged to question or even reject some authority figures, such as parents or church leaders, which appealed to many boys. They had to, however, accept NAZI principles without question. Hitler Youth leaders did not represent an autonomous youth culture but were, in effect, functionaries of the NAZI Party bureaucracy. They were tighty regimented by rules and regulations.

The Land Service (Landdienst) was created in 1934 by Artur Axmann, who headed the National Youth Directorate. This “back to the land” ideal was originally created back in 1924 by the right-wing Artamanen movement, but was incorporated into the Nazi party structure as the leaders of that movement willingly joined the Nazi party. Within the service, the youth were encouraged to give back to the land by working the farms, plant trees and flowers, and to help the rural people cultivate the land for the future of all Germany. It was believed that the Jews populated only urban areas, and so the rural folk were racially pure and needed the help of Hitler Youth (who would then indoctrinate the children of those rural areas). The land service credo was “Blut und Boden” (Blood and Soil). The Land Service was very popular amongst the HJ. From spring until harvest time, the HJ would work the farms before dispersing in the winter back to the cities. Some would remain behind and venture out as theatrical entertainment to the rural peoples, while most left for leadership schools or agrarian institutes.

Obama’s education programs.

The NAZI Party established secondary schools for carefully selected children. They were primarily for boys, but a few were also for girls. The schools were to train the Party elite. The major program was the Nationalpolitische Erziehungsanstalt (NPEA or NAPOLA). The other kind of secondary schools created by the NAZIs were called the Adolf Hitler Schulen (AHS--Adolf Hitler Schools). The AHS were founded because the SS essentially seized control of the NAPOLA. Reichsorganisationsleiter Dr. Robert Ley (DAF leader) and Baldur von Schirach (Hitler Youth leader) agreed to set up the new schools in January 1937. The schools, as far as we know, were very similar. The primary difference was simply who controlled them. The other kind of secondary schools created by the NAZIs were called the Adolf Hitler Schulen (AHS--Adolf Hitler Schools). The AHS were founded because the SS essentially seized control of the NAPOLA. Reichsorganisationsleiter Dr. Robert Ley (DAF leader of the DAF) and Baldur von Schirach (Hitler Youth leader) agreed to set up the new schools in January 1937.

In addition to the traditional German school system, the Nazis established three types of elite schools for the training of the young Nazis: the Adolf Hitler Schools run by the Hitler Youth organization; the Napolas (National Political Institutes of Education) and the Ordensburgen (Order Castles) both run by the Nazi Party.

There were eventually ten Adolf Hitler Schools which took boys at age 12 from the Jungvolk and provided six years of intensive, highly disciplined leadership training under Spartan-like conditions. Top rated graduates of these school were eligible for the exclusive Ordensburgen for another three years of training, after which they would be ready to assume high level positions in the Nazi Party. It was from these Ordensburgen, steeped in Teutonic mythology, that Hitler hoped would emerge a "violently active, dominating, brutal youth ... indifferent to pain, without weakness and tenderness."

Teachers who remained in the college classroom lived under the constant fear they might be denounced by one of their students and wind up in a concentration camp. This insecurity resulted in academic timidity, which further lowered educational standards.

National Socialist teachers of questionable ability stepped into grammar school and high school classrooms to form young minds, strictly abiding by the Party motto, "The supreme task of the schools is the education of youth for the service of Volk and State in the National Socialist spirit." They taught Nazi propaganda, which was then recited back by their students as unshakable points of view with no room for disagreement or discussion.

Over the years, the Hitler Youth organization would gradually supplant the traditional elementary and secondary school system and become the main force educating German youth. And the quality of that education would get worse. Students emerging from the elite Adolf Hitler Schools were in superb physical condition and thoroughly drilled in Nazi ideology, but lacked basic skills in math and science. Biology, for example, had been completely corrupted to advance Nazi racial doctrine.

On December 1, 1936, Hitler decreed "The Law concerning the Hitler Youth," which mandated that all young Germans (excluding Jews) would "be educated physically, intellectually, and morally in the spirit of National Socialism" though the Hitler Youth from the age of ten onward. This law also effectively ended the Catholic Youth Organization, which had managed to hold on for three years amid continual Nazi harassment.

Parents who prevented their children from joining the Hitler Youth were subject to heavy prison sentences. Membership thus grew to nearly six million. As a result, the organization sprouted into a giant bureaucracy in Berlin and began to acquire the dreariness of a big governmental institution in marked contrast to the dynamic organization it had been in the 1920s and early 1930s when members battled daily to bring Hitler to power. The compulsory nature of weekly HJ meetings for everyone led to a gradual decline in morale and discipline.

Hitler gave a speech in which he spoke candidly about his own youth and painful adolescence and then ended by telling them, "You, my youth, are our nation's most precious guarantee for a great future, and you are destined to be the leaders of a glorious new order under the supremacy of National Socialism. Never forget that one day you will rule the world!" Many Hitler Youths now regarded Hitler as their Führer-god and even recited prayers to him such as: "Führer, my Führer, give me by God. Protect and preserve my life for long. You saved Germany in time of need. I thank you for my daily bread. Be with me for a long time, do not leave me, Führer, my Führer, my faith, my light, Hail to my Führer!"

Hitler, in a somewhat cynical mood in 1938, expressed his attitude toward them. "This youth learns nothing but to think German and to act German. When these boys enter our organization at the age of ten, it is often the first time in their lives that they get to breathe and feel fresh air; then four years later they come from the Jungvolk into the Hitler Youth, and we keep them there for another four years, and then we definitely don't put them back into the hands of the originators of our old classes and status barriers; rather we take them straight into the Party or into the Labor Front, the SA, or the SS, the NSKK [motorized corps] and so on. And if they are there for another two years or a year and a half and still haven't become complete National Socialists, then they go into the Labor Service and are polished for another six or seven months, all with a symbol, the German spade. And any class consciousness or pride of status that may be left here and there is taken over by the Wehrmacht for further treatment for two years, and when they come back after two, three, or four years, we take them straight into the SA, SS, and so on again, so that they shall in no case suffer a relapse, and they will never be free again as long as they live."

By 1939, about 82 percent (7.3 million) of eligible youths within the Reich belonged to the Hitler Youth, making it the largest youth organization in the world. A new law was issued on March 25, 1939, conscripting any remaining holdouts into the organization amid warnings to parents that their children would be taken from them and placed in orphanages unless they enrolled.

Get the kids at age zero in mandatory “day care” where indoctrination can begin early. He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!

Do we need further warning? Are we going to be led down the path like sheep to the slaughter? Even more importantly, are we going to allow our children and grandchildren to be led down that path? Remember the words of the great German messiah: "... they will never be free again as long as they live."

Note: Our friend BB over at Brenda's As I Go, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow blogged on this as well and has some good information as to the sources for The Chief Occupiers plan.

The Ridiculous and Beyond

The Dems are ranting and raving over the bonuses paid to AIG execs, but it seems that the loudest of the bunch was complicit in the whole deal. After previously denying any involvement in writing the controversial provision, Dodd admitted on CNN that he inserted a loophole in the stimulus legislation that allowed million-dollar bonuses to insurance giant AIG to go forward.
Dodd told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer,“We wrote the language in the bill, the deal with bonuses, golden parachutes, excessive executive compensation that was adopted unanimously by the United States Senate in the stimulus bill. But for that language, there would have been no language to deal with this at all.”

Of course, Dodd lied earlier and said he had no role in writing the controversial language and was not a part of the conference committee that inserted the language in the bill. His spokeswoman continued to lie for him up until he made the full confession on CNN.

Of course, nothing is heard about the big bonuses being paid out to the Freddie and Fannie execs either; you know, the one that Barney “spittle lips” Frank’s boyfriend has a hand in.

I wonder what Ron Silver would think of the AIG bonuses. He'd have some original take, I am sure, and perhaps would even propose re-opening the bonuses paid to Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelick for their yeoman's work running Fannie Mae into the ground and then collecting bonuses of $90 million and $24.7 million, respectively. I guess we will never know. Ron Silver died of cancer last Sunday.
The lies keep getting deeper and deeper and better and better, or is it worse and worse? It seems the Chief Occupier must have given the orders to cover Dodd’s butt since he is in deep doo, so now…
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told CNN that his department asked Sen. Chris Dodd to include a loophole in the stimulus bill that allowed bailed-out insurance giant American International Group to keep its bonuses.
Can you believe all this stuff! It’s falling apart, and the inexperienced clowns can’t seem to keep it together. It actually is beginning to remind me of Humpty Dumpty, and you know the end of that story, only in this era it will be … “and the Chief Occupier and all his clowns could not put Humpty together again.”

Meanwhile, the Chief Occupier plays sports prognosticator by picking the Final Four in the NCAA hoops playoff. You know he’s an expert on such since he plays some pickup with the boys in da hood.
To further detract from the fact that he and many other Dems knew about the bonuses, he is going on Leno’s show and playing comedian! He should have taken Joe “blow” Biden with him, and they could have continued their clown act. Guess he thinks that will keep the news quiet that he and Chucky Schumer received loads of cash from AIG for their election coffers.
OOOHH, nothing about that in the LSM, was there? I got it from the Australian newspaper yesterday. Strange how the LSM seems to forget to report any of the real news.

Well, so far, it seems the great plan put forth by the IIC to make Disabled Vets use insurance to pay for their care is “dead in the water,” at least for now. Stay alert because you can be assured that Obumler will attempt to have it slipped into one of his upcoming Stimulus crockola bills. When he figures he can’t get his way, he goes stealth. So stay ALERT.

ZIMBABWE President Robert Mugabe has called for foreign aid to revive his nation's shattered economy and urged Washington and Brussels to end "cruel" sanctions on his inner circle.
"I, on behalf of the inclusive government and the people of Zimbabwe, say, friends of Zimbabwe, please come to our aid," Mr. Mugabe said at the launch of a new economic recovery plan prepared by the month-old unity government.

"To the European Union and the United States, I appeal for the removal of your sanctions, which are inhumane, cruel, and unwarranted."
Rest assured that "the One" will be right on it, sending a few trillion or so to his "friend" in Africa.

Take executive pay. Add a large dollop of falling share prices and months of rising unemployment. Mix in political grandstanding. Bake until red hot.

The Rudd Government is clearly keenly attuned to the populist politics of sensitive issues.

Did you ever wonder if perhaps there was some “cloning” going on with political characters? Seems the Chief Occupier, Rudd in Australia, and Gordon Brown in GB are all reading from the same playbook. If there was, count on George Soros being the puppet master behind the scheme.

Speaking of Soros:
George Soros is having a very good crisis. Other investors are wilting, political power structures are being upended, and market economists are scrambling to fashion new theories, but the world's most famous speculator is having a belated heyday.

"It is, in a way, the culminating point of my life’s work," the 78-year-old says in his heavy Hungarian accent during an interview at his London mansion. "The American election, the financial crisis, the theory of reflexivity, so it is actually a very stimulating period."
Yep, he got his sock puppet in the WH, screwed up the economy just enough to create a false crisis, got his sock puppet reading the daily topic from a teleprompter to keep it inflamed, and this SOB is having the time of his life.
In August 2007, with the first symptoms of the credit crunch on the horizon, Soros came out of semi-retirement to reassume control of his Quantum investment fund, astutely repositioning it for the tsunami about to hit. By year’s end Quantum was up almost 32 percent for 2007, netting Soros profits of $US2.9 billion at a time when other financiers were struggling to break even.
Did you notice that gas prices went up again this week? Blame Bush and Cheney! Oops can’t do that; they are not in charge anymore.
Well, you can thank the IIC and his Treasury gang, since they decided in order to cover all of the checks they have written in the past couple of weeks, they need to print a Trillion dollars worth of new money.
I wonder when the Zombies who voted for this IIC will wake up and realize what a mistake they have made?

Even more ridiculous ...
The same idiots in Congress who left the barn door open so AIG could get the bonuses (that would be Chris Dodd, and you read about his move above), have now decided that after the door is slammed shut they will tax the checks to the tune of 90%. Now that’s what I call working hard to recover the money. Oh, well, since they forgot to print that much extra cash, they figure they have to do something. I hope they get sued until the cows come back home.
I am betting it won’t stand the Constitutional test.

Well, that’s just the surface of the ridiculous and beyond that has occurred this week in the National Swamp known as Washington, DC. I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I have enjoyed putting it together.

I have heard it all now, and I am now so fed up with this Idiot in Chief, Chief Occupier of the WH, that I am ready to spit.

Any Congressman voting for this type of bill. along with the impostor who came up with the idea. needs to be stood in front of a wall and have the firing squad do its job.

Some of you will remember that I said this impostor would turn the VA medical system into a welfare medical program by doing away with it as it is and turning it into the National Health Care program, thus making the VA hospitals just like any other hospital. The Veterans who have fought, bled, and damn near died to try to make this a fit country would be required to sit and wait while the scum and the welfare hoochies get their free treatment. Most of us who would be affected by this have already paid the price for our treatment and many live each day with the wounds, the memories, and the pain. Enough is enough.

I hope that all who voted for this impostor are happy. BTW if you have so called friends who have not come to their senses as of yet as to what they voted for, you have my permission to forward this with my name on it. If they want to take this angry Vet to task they had danged well better prepare for a fight like they have never experienced. As you can tell, I am not happy and, frankly, I am wanting to know what it is going to take to get the revolution started. I am locked, loaded, and ready to fight, bleed and, if necessary, die to keep this country from what this impostor wants to change it into.

If you are going to write your congressmen, now would be a good time. May I suggest that you send the contents of this blog along to them.

The American Legion Strongly Opposed to President's Plan
to Charge Wounded Heroes for Treatment

Contact: Craig Roberts of The American Legion, +1-202-263-2982 Office, +1-202-406-0887 Cell

WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The leader of the nation's largest veterans organization says he is "deeply disappointed and concerned" after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

"It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan," said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. "He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it."

The Commander, clearly angered as he emerged from the session said, "This reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate ' to care for him who shall have borne the battle' given that the United States government sent members of the armed forces into harm's way, and not private insurance companies. I say again that The American Legion does not and will not support any plan that seeks to bill a veteran for treatment of a service connected disability at the very agency that was created to treat the unique need of America's veterans!"

Commander Rehbein was among a group of senior officials from veterans service organizations joining the President, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki and Steven Kosiak, the overseer of defense spending at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The group's early afternoon conversation at The White House was precipitated by a letter of protest presented to the President earlier this month. The letter, co-signed by Commander Rehbein and the heads of ten colleague organizations, read, in part, " There is simply no logical explanation for billing a veteran's personal insurance for care that the VA has a responsibility to provide. While we understand the fiscal difficulties this country faces right now, placing the burden of those fiscal problems on the men and women who have already sacrificed a great deal for this country is unconscionable."

Commander Rehbein reiterated points made last week in testimony to both House and Senate Veterans' Affairs Committees. It was stated then that The American Legion believes that the reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate that VA treat service-connected injuries and disabilities given that the United States government sends members of the armed forces into harm's way, and not private insurance companies. The proposed requirement for these companies to reimburse the VA would not only be unfair, says the Legion, but would have an adverse impact on service-connected disabled veterans and their families. The Legion argues that, depending on the severity of the medical conditions involved, maximum insurance coverage limits could be reached through treatment of the veteran's condition alone. That would leave the rest of the family without health care benefits. The Legion also points out that many health insurance companies require deductibles to be paid before any benefits are covered. Additionally, the Legion is concerned that private insurance premiums would be elevated to cover service-connected disabled veterans and their families, especially if the veterans are self-employed or employed in small businesses unable to negotiate more favorable across-the-board insurance policy pricing. The American Legion also believes that some employers, especially small businesses, would be reluctant to hire veterans with service-connected disabilities due to the negative impact their employment might have on obtaining and financing company health care benefits.

"I got the distinct impression that the only hope of this plan not being enacted," said Commander Rehbein, "is for an alternative plan to be developed that would generate the desired $540-million in revenue. The American Legion has long advocated for Medicare reimbursement to VA for the treatment of veterans. This, we believe, would more easily meet the President's financial goal. We will present that idea in an anticipated conference call with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel in the near future. The Commander is being led down the garden path just as were those who foolishly believed that he would really do this country some good. The commander fails to realize that when “the One” speaks, it’s ONLY WORDS and they mean little if anything.

"I only hope the administration will really listen to us then. This matter has far more serious ramifications than the President is imagining," concluded the Commander. The Commander doesn’t realize how prophetic his words are for indeed this will indeed have very serious ramifications, those like have not been seen since the Revolution.

This is part of the paper prepared by Bobby R. Price, LT, USN (Ret), Desert Storm Vet and Ms. Karyn Damian, US Army Veteran on April 13 2005. I believe it sums up what the Imposter in Chief has never understood. He now sends his wife to attempt to scam the Veterans' Families into believing that he is all for us, but like his entire campaign, his lies and promises amount to nothing but empty words. BEWARE FOR THE ENEMY IS AMONG US!

This short white paper is being written to bring to light the deep concern the veteran’s community has regarding the consistent under funding of the Veterans Affairs Health Care system. We have carried the message over and over to veteran’s organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, Disabled American Veterans, American Legion, Purple Heart Association and many others. Over the years, these organizations have been instrumental in gaining small changes and each year they are required to readdress the same.

This paper will describe the specific legislation requirements the veteran’s of this great country are planning to voice to the government. This will be conveyed by an organized march on the nation’s capital, Washington DC on June 8, 2005. It is our intention to insure that the Congress, Senate and members of the Executive Branch hear us loud and clear. We are not going to tolerate the continued under funding of the VA Health Care system from this day forward. This country owes veterans of the past, those who are serving now and those who will serve in the future, the very best of care. We will task our government to stop balancing the budget on the backs of veterans. (Or building a National Health Care Program on our backs to satisfy this narcissistic impostor’s ego )

Each and every one of us made a bet with the government and the American people. The bet was simple but carries heavy consequences.

“The bet: We, the American Veteran will defend this nation from all enemies, foreign or domestic. We will defend her in peace and in war. We will defend her with our bodies and our lives. If we should die in the name of our country, our President and the American people, you the people have won the bet and after burial rights, a grave marker, a folded flag, a message on behalf of the President of the United State and a grateful Nation and minimum compensation to our families, you are done with your obligation. However, should we become injured, wounded or suffer from mental anguish as a result of our service, then your portion of the bet is to care for us by way of health care and service connected compensation for as long as we shall live. That care is to be resourced without fail or debate.

Further, should we survive 20 years or more of service without giving our life; we shall be paid a percentage of our basic pay for as long as we shall live. Finally, should we suffer injury and continue to serve 20 or more years, we shall receive earned pension compensation and concurrently receive service connected injury compensation.’

Simply, we bet our life and limb for this nation’s defense. In return, this country bets compensation and healthcare. We, the veteran, pay with our life and limb. Once paid, there is no return. What gives this Nation’s political leaders the right to change their portion of the bet after we completed our end of the bargain? The nation does not have that right and we are coming to tell it so. One Million of us! Let it begin!

You can rest assured that if this bill even comes to the floor there will be more than a million this time and we will not be as peaceful as this march was. It will be more likened to the march and encampment in March of 1933. Unlike the WW1 Vets who went peacefully and unarmed, this time I do not believe this will be the case. I fear it will take more than words to show the Chief Occupier that the Vets are serious.

"The Nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools."

We are going to put an end to the notion that the American taxpayer exists to fund the federal government.

The Rest of The Story

Does any of this sound familiar? You say, sure, that was the Obama and Biden Democrat Platform during the campaign and is now what the Chief Occupier is trying to do since he was elected. Well you are half right and half wrong. Read to the end and discover "the rest of the story"

A new day is dawning. Our country is at a turning point. This is a time of great possibility. Across the land, people are coming together to reshape our nation’s priorities to make government “of, by and for the people” a reality.

There is a crisis in every critical area of national life. Profits at the top are record high, but families can’t make ends meet. Trillions are squandered in Iraq, but 45 million are without health care. Billions are spent on tax breaks to the super rich, but working families are losing their homes and young people can’t afford higher education.

Working people want bold new policies to end war restore democratic traditions and create green living wage jobs, affordable housing, healthcare and quality education for everyone.

. Although the ultra-right is weakened and divided, they continue to push fear, division, racism and anti-immigrant bigotry in this year’s elections, aided and abetted by the corporate media. These multi-pronged poisonous tactics can only be overcome with unbreakable unity.

During the Great Depression of the 1930’s, unemployed workers and their allies marched and organized until public works jobs, Social Security and New Deal programs were won. In the 1960’s the great civil rights movement won the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.

In 2008, union members, African Americans, Latinos, youth and women, seniors, environmental and peace voters are forging a powerful new all encompassing movement that makes great changes possible.


We offer these proposals as a contribution toward the bold policy changes necessary to meet the immediate needs of working people, eliminate poverty and move our country forward with a new President and Congress. Funding to come from monies now being spent on the Iraq war, military budget and tax breaks to the super rich.

1. Immediate Relief

Assist deficit-ridden state and local governments so they can preserve services and jobs. Fund “ready-to-go” infrastructure projects


2. A Peacetime, Green Jobs Economy for All

Enact massive public works job creation to make existing buildings energy efficient, construct new schools, hospitals, affordable housing, mass transit and bridges. Priority to areas hurt by loss of manufacturing, loss of family farms and highest unemployment areas including the Katrina-devastated Gulf Coast.

Major clean, affordable energy development project for solar, wind and biomass electricity generation.

Immediate program to cut greenhouse gas emissions and for environmental cleanup.

Restore Federal energy regulation and encourage public ownership of utilities.

No privatization of Social Security or Medicare. Expand and improve benefits.

3. Restore Civil Rights, the Bill of Rights and Separation of Powers

Restore Fairness Doctrine in media.

4. Strength through Peace

Withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq with no bases or U.S. corporations left behind.

Full care for returning veterans.

No war on Iran or expansion of troops in Afghanistan. Assistance to Iraqi people to rebuild their country.

Adopt a new foreign policy of diplomacy and respect for all nations, instead of preemptive war for corporate interests. Renew commitment to UN peace role.

End trade policies that enrich corporations while destroying jobs.

Ratify Kyoto Treaty and other climate change agreements.

Enforce nuclear non-proliferation, work to abolish nuclear weapons.

Cut Pentagon spending in half, close down US bases around the world.

. Now that you have read what appears to be the Democrats and Chief Occupier’s platform here is where it actually came from. Looks like the “old plagiarist Joe “and in need of “Ghost Writer Barry” have taken the words right off the CPUSA manifesto.

Program Of The Communist Party USA.”

State Department to offer Palestinian Scholarships

When I read this headline I thought surely it is a mistake but then after thinking about the direction this administration has been going I was not surprised. I suppose one could call this more aide to the Global Economy. I have news for the Chief Occupier. The good people in this country are only going to take so much of this kind of radical direction and will soon go to the windows and hit the streets screaming, "I'M MAD AS HELL AND NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!"

It sounds like parody, but it's not: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last week announced a four-year program of US scholarships and "opportunity grants" for "disadvantaged young Palestinians" to attend universities. What next? Mortgage-refinancing seminars for Somali warlords? Universal health-care for at-risk children of homeless (caveless?) al Qaeda refugees?

America may have voted last November for diplomacy over war, but Team Obama's taking this outreach thing a bit far.

Clinton's scholarships come on the heels of her promise for a $900 million cash-bath for Gaza, that terrorist haven by the sea ruled by militant Hamas.

OK, not all Palestinians are terrorists. But Israel's demise is a lot higher on many Palestinians' priority lists than truth-based secular education.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

The step to provide college grants to foreign students, in general, might be a good idea. Exposing America to impressionable youth might lead to increased ties when the return to their homelands, assuming that follows their college years. Unfortunately, that has not been the case when Arab students attend college in America. All too often they engage in political behavior on college campuses that has nothing to do with taking advantage of college scholarships to learn but has everything to do with getting a free subsidy to propagandize on campus. Sometimes these students choose to use their education to become college professors in Middle East Studies. They then further politicize the classrooms in colleges across America.

Shouldn't we focus on reaching them when they are younger-even opening up well-monitored schools in their neighborhoods, including grade schools?

How much money will America keep spending; I thought we had an educational funding crisis in our own schools.( Our schools don't count, only to increase the size of the Teacher's unions, which is ,of course, where the majority of education money went.)

Hattip: Ed Lasky, article from American Thinker

"The same prudence which in private life would forbid our paying our own money for unexplained projects, forbids it in the dispensation of the public moneys. ... The multiplication of public offices, increase of expense beyond income, growth and entailment of a public debt, are indications soliciting the employment of the pruning knife. ... We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. ... The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale. ... If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy. ... I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious." ... Thomas Jefferson

When all else fails…..

When all else fails….. either lie better or change lies. Seems this is what “the ONE” is doing today.

Confronting misgivings, even in his own party, President Barack Obama mounted a stout defense of his blueprint to overhaul the economy Thursday, declaring the national crisis is "not as bad as we think" and his plans will speed recovery.

"A smidgen of good news and suddenly everything is doing great. A little bit of bad news and ooohh , we're down on the dumps," Obama said. "And I am obviously an object of this constantly varying assessment. I am the object in chief of this varying assessment."

Well for certain there is one thing we can agree on , he has a different story for every occasion just as he did when he was running for office. Unfortunately campaigning is all he evidently knows how to do because so far everything he has tried has failed. Since his election and taking office the economy of the country has been on a downhill slide faster than anything I can remember seeing in my life time including the economic fiasco of Jimmy Carter .

The Chief Occupier is now saying, things are not as bad as we think but just a few days, weeks and a few months ago he was saying just the opposite and nothing, absolutely nothing reflects any change unless you wish to count the fact that Citicorp made a profit for two months. It is probably on this that he is basing his statements and wishing to take the credit for it happening but nothing he has done in regard to Citicorp has had time to take effect. The recovery of Citicorp started before “The One” took office, so that dog won’t hunt at all.

He has been the spokesman for DOOM AND GLOOM and now suddenly he expects folks to believe that all is better than what he was saying just last week , last month and before that. Only those who are still intoxicated on “the One’s” kool aide would believe that. Of course there are many who are in that condition and others who are still drinking at “the One’s” kool aide fountain.

"I don't think things are ever as good as they say, or ever as bad as they say,"

Oh really, that is not what you have been saying since day one! Let’s just see what you have been saying and now you expect us to believe another fairy tale. Which is it? You can’t have it both ways in the real world, but then you have never lived in the real world have you Mr. Occupier?

"We are in the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression,

"We are facing an economic crisis of historic proportions."

During this period of economic emergency, families are tightening their belts,

I don't think that any economist disputes that we're in the worst economic crisis since the great depression

There is a devastating economic crisis that will become more and more difficult to contain with time. For the sake of our economy and our people, this is the moment to act, and to act without delay.

We start this new year in the midst of an economic crisis unlike we have seen in our lifetime."

You don't need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere.
But while our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken, though we are living through difficult and uncertain times
This is a responsibility that's fallen to our generation. Meeting it will require steering our nation's economy through a crisis unlike anything that we have seen in our time.

"Instead of having a set of policies that are equipping people for the globalization of the economy, we have policies that are accelerating the most destructive trends of the global economy."

The last statement of course is his agenda, not the recovery of the US. He would destroy the economy of the US to insure the global economy for that is the way his handler , George Soros , wants it.
