Today’s Unconscionable Government Actions

I found this column in today’s It is written by Anthony G. Martin, who also blogs at Liberty Sphere.  He covers the material well and paints a picture of the extreme arrogance we are dealing with.

However, we must remember the Democrats, led by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama, know their window of opportunity is closing.  In about a year that window will be closed as Republicans and conservative will sweep away their temporary super-majority.  If anything last Tuesday’s repudiation encourages them rather than chastens them.  It encourages them to move with a sense of urgency knowing they must act before the public can throw them out.  Why, you may be asking?  Because a sweeping take-over of health care give Democrats power.  The more people latched onto the government tit they more people are beholden to the Democrats.  They are enslaving the American people while the idiot masses gladly extend their hands for a bit more money, never suspecting it is they who are paying for it.  In more ways than they realize.

That is the only word one can find that adequately describes the actions of an extremist U.S. government barely 2 days out from a clear repudiation by the voters.

Unconscionable.  A most startling word that denotes the lack of a conscience.

There is no other way to suitably or more accurately describe the actions of the U.S.Congress today, initiated by the Democratic leadership, even as hundreds if not thousands of conservatives descended upon Washington in a Capitol Building protest led by Rep. Michelle Bachmann.

Bachmann’s plan included a rally on the Capitol steps to decry the push by Nancy Pelosi and other extremists to shove government-run healthcare down the throats of the American people, followed by a citizen-led person-to-person campaign as the protesters seek out and talk to their own Representatives face-to-face.

These stalwart Patriots arrived in Washington just in the nick of time, it would appear.

Reuters reports that a Senate panel led by California Leftist Barbara Boxer approved a ‘climate change’ measure over the objections of the GOP, which boycotted the vote en mass. The bill essentially cripples the oil, coal,and gas industries by mandating ‘carbon emissions’ restrictions that would have the effect of hampering the ability of Americans to say warm, cool, and drive to work…you know, that little thing we call ‘LIVING.’


Bloomberg is reporting that despite the voice of the citizens in repudiating ObamaCare and other Obama initiatives in Tuesday’s vote, the Democratic leadership in the House is proceeding with plans for a vote on the massive 2-trillion-dollar government takeover of healthcare. The vote could come as early as tomorrow or Saturday.


And then, in perhaps the most outrageous action of all, the U.S. Senate, led by Leftist extremists such as Harry Reid, John Kerry, Chris Dodd, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and Chuck Schumer, voted to BLOCK a simple question from being asked on the upcoming U.S. Census.

That question? ‘Are you a U.S. citizen?’


The whole purpose of the census is to discover how many CITIZENS we have in the U.S. for the purpose of setting House district boundaries, the number of representatives allowed to the states, as well as billions of dollars in federal money.

When illegal aliens are included in the mix, which the Democrats wish to do, an unfair advantage is created in favor of those states that have the most illegals–states such as California.

Such a thing is not only unconstitutional but criminal.

Since law enforcement won’t do that job in holding our elected officials accountable to the law and the Constitution, is it time for ordinary citizens to place these enemies of the rule of law under ‘citizens’ arrest?’

No one is above the law, and extremist illegal measures implemented by elected officials should be met by extreme action on the part of the citizens.

This is a clear attack on our liberties. And, as Barry Goldwater is famous for saying, ‘Let me remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me also remind you that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.’

  1. RE:U.S. Senate, led by Leftist extremists such as Harry Reid, John Kerry, Chris Dodd, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and Chuck Schumer, voted to BLOCK a simple question from being asked on the upcoming U.S. Census.

    Now, I will be the first to say I am not a student of constitutional law, but it appears to this layman the actions of the Senate are unconstitutional.

    However, having said that, there is no mention of what constitutes a citizen.

    Certainly, there must be a way to tie the representation in government back to legal citizens of their district – to legitimize them – and do it in such a way that proves constitutional. In so doing, the non-citizens would not be eligible to be enumerated.

    Has anybody thought deeply about the consequences of another illegal immigrant amnesty? Let’s forget for the moment that suddenly 20 to 30 million people are going to be legalized? That Sanctuary states like California, New Mexico have been financially ridden hard into the ground, because illegal workers and their families are feeding at a gold mine at the taxpayer expense. Let’s not mention that since the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli bill, those made legal, was able to bring into the United States their extended family members. That although they signed an affidavit to support those, many ended up at the taxpayer’s expense. So let’s ignore the expenditures to educate, free health care treatment and all the rest of hidden costs of subsidizing a large portion of the US population. The fact that the businesses that draw them here, from every corner of the world–PAYS NOTHING TOWARDS THEIR UPKEEP. IT’S FREE GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES FOR PARIAH BUSINESS, BETTER KNOWN AS CORPORATE WELFARE? Every one of the Democratic leadership have used their influence to weaken E-Verify, county police fed program 287 (g) and ICE raids on businesses.

    So president Obama bypasses the masses the hard pressed American, who have entreated him–NO BLANKET AMNESTY! No path to citizenship! So the millions already here get a free ride to your pensions, social security, public option health care welfare. Who in the world is going to pay for all these legalized individual, followed by the onslaught of millions more looking for free health care? NOW HERE COMES THE FIRESTORM! Have we taken leave of our senses, to think for one moment that another amnesty which is in the works? That a single layer fence is going to hold back millions upon millions more people will–COME? This will not be small meandering lines of illegal aliens, crossing the border during the hours of darkness? This is going to be an unimaginably rush at a defenseless 9.000 border patrol agents, that is–Expected?–to hold at bay those who reach our border? Not even the National Guard and regular GI’s could stop the wave upon wave? They will sweep in from El-Salvador, Columbia, Guatemala, Peru, Chile and of course Mexico. They will arrive from Canada, Ireland, Poland and Romania by plane clutching a tourist visa.

    Every corner of the world will hear the resounding trumpet call of Osama’s AMNESTY. Chinese immigrants with tourist visas will fly into Mexico City and perhaps terrorists smuggled in by M 13 gang members? Not just the poor, but the sick, mentally handicapped along with criminals, absconding from the arm of the law across this planet. NOW THE MOST URGENT QUESTION IS? WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR ALL THIS? We are already swallowing the massive funding for Iraq and Afghanistan. We cannot even find jobs for hapless 15 million American workers, who (if true) are joining day-laborers at Home Depot, Walmart, and Lowe’s parking lots? So who is going to house, feed and pay-out–more strained US taxpayer money? Perhaps we should send families of illegal aliens to squat in Sen. Harry Reid’s gated home in Nevada. Send another crowd to live in House Speakers Nancy Pelosi’s grape plantations in Central California. How about Chuck Schumer, HS Chief Janet Napolitano, Joe Biden, Diane Feinstein, Gil Cedillo leaving their house key under the mat, for some large family from Indonesia, India to find?

    Let’s give them free bus fare to each and every politician with a lousy immigration grading, such as Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) or the whole Sacramento Liberal Marxist assembly, who have sold bona-fide legal Angelino’s into state insolvency? Why not have them live-in at every ACLU office and their communist lawyers so they could feed them. Every pro-illegal immigrant Chamber of Commerce member could open a spare room and settle some family members, until more brothers and sisters could be sponsored and join them. The Catholic Church and other religious groups could welcome them at the church doors and distribute money from the plate? The minority of Evangelicals churches could open up the rectory, accommodating hundreds of cots from the tired and poverty stricken. All the anti-sovereignty lawmakers should have plenty of room in their Virginia mansions, their custom ranches for large numbers of impoverished families. Even the President has that large White structure–could exhibit some kindness to homeless families and FEMA could establish a tent city in the grounds? Any of the House and Senate who compromised illegal immigration enforcement, should announce their address for resettlement of people who just run the gauntlet at the under funded border fence.

    Let’s face it these people who call us names such as xenophobes bigots and worse, adding ugly cuss words to their vocabulary should also open their doors to anybody who enters America illegally. Microsoft multi-billionaire Bill Gates and the thousands of businesses that don’t incur a darn cent should bring these family members together in their giant homes. Corporate owners who have colluded with State governors, Mayors, Judges and other lower echelon officials, should participate with a welcome mat. Perhaps American workers should obtain a hard copy list of every unpatriotic American and give illegal matriarch a page of addresses for their extended illegal families? We have San Francisco’s mayor Galvin Newsom and Los Angeles Antonio R.Villaraigosa and all the other–SANCTUARY CITIES AND STATES who have completely ignore federal laws, can also give refuge in their abodes to incorrigible
    gang members who have killed without conscience, illiterate drunk laborers who have slaughtered families on our streets, because they could comprehend English warning signs.

    Then just picture the traffic chaos in every corner of America, unless you live in an isolated ranch in the Mohave Desert, in California. We think we have road rage now, but give it a few weeks after unfettered AMNESTY. I even have a better idea. Open America’s doors completely? No Ellis Island, Galveston Island. No documents, no inspections. NO NOTHING. Give everybody a bus ticket of their choosing, to where they wish to go? See how long the open border zealots put up with that progressive rush to overpopulation. IF you have changes of heart give a tongue-lashing to your legislators at 202-224-3121 in Washington. Learn the financial services in billions of dollars to foreign nationals at NUMBERSUSA,. Hidden corruption that has finally been uncovered, at JUDICIAL WATCH? What the US Census has to say about the POPULATION GROWTH in the future of our children at CAPSWEB? Our population will escalate from 255 million to 383 million by the year to 2050? The next 100 million will suffocate our ability to maintain water, energy, food, communication, infrastructure and a balanced environment.

  2. Many of us “get it”; that our politicians have been terrible pimps of America, not charging for her services by just giving it all away. They have been pandering to the wrong set of illegitimate constituents with the hope of buying votes by opening up our treasury.

    I will advance the idea that apathy coupled with a failure to properly vet political candidates prior to casting votes for them has lead us here. It would appear our chickens have come home.
