WHO WILL SUE THE NORQUIST PLEDGE SIGNERS?

When a lawmaker represents a constituency, they are duty
bound to represent the people & interests of constituencies.
Those who have signed the Norquist pledge (opposition to all
tax increases)have dismissed the concerns of their constituencies,
rather being entrenched in highly partisan policies & politics.

Those who have legislators representing them, who do not
agree with their representatives having signed the Norquist
pledge, should gather themselves together to sue these
representatives. Those who did not know that their candidates
or incumbents signed the pledge, should also gather to sue.

The signing of the Norquist pledge has hamstrung the
Congress creating gridlock, to the chagrin of most true
Americans. Legal systems should address this aberancy.
Americans should not be forced into the predetermined.

Also, I received a letter from Mitt Romney & RNC asking
me to give money and sign a pledge. I am a Democrat. I
am pro-Obama all day everyday. I believe that the RNC
got Obama’s small donor list. I called the RNC and asked
them to never contact me again. Could it be that Mitt
Romney & RNC are trying to “turn” Democrats or was it
a fluke? A warning to hard-core Dems; ahead: filthy pool!

PALIN’S FINGERPRINTS

Fingers in the powerful’s pies
from one end of the country
to another. America’s  Siberia

declared too confining for an
ascending star. Always there

to whisper into the ear of the
next person who will implode.

Chameleon by nature.
Save McCain today. Tomorrow,
ride with the Tea Party Express.

Not rattled when fingerprints
are spread with cribnote-palms.
No shame. No shame.

Spin, spin , spin
deny, deny, deny
lie, lie, lie…

Palin’s fingerprints.

Cunning figurehead
strategist who pulls down
 
her own allegiances by
virtue of her idiotic advice.

Just ask Jan Brewer
about the advice of Palin.

What?  Arizona collapsed;
all business came to a halt?

What do you expect?
She sleeps with a successionist.

Never try to corner Palin.
Teeth barred,
you’ll suffer more than

Palin’s fingertips.

divide, divide, divide
deflect, deflect, deflect.
destroy, destroy, destroy.

Touted as clever-
made millions off of the
backs of the believing faithful.

CSI: follow the money-
it is awash with fingerprints…
 
Palin’s fingerprints.

NATIVE AMERICANS WILL BE VICTIMIZED BY NEW ARIZONA LAW

Yesterday, a friend of mine from Arizona told me of the following encounter:  two men and two women, who live on reservations  but work in Phoenix, were expressing outrage over the possibility of being hassled because they look Hispanic. There are twenty-one federally recognized tribes in Arizona. There are 250,000 Native Americans in Arizona.  Reservations and Tribal Communities comprise one fourth of Arizona lands.  This “stop & hassle” law will lead to problems with the original Natives of this country. This is but one aspect of the intrinsic savagery of this moribund legislation.

CURRENT REPUBLICAN AGENDA

Republicans do not engage in overblown statements because they are ‘psycho.’  These are deliberate inflammatory remarks whereby they can use ‘freedom of speech’ to mask their overt ‘hate speech.’ There is a method to their madness. They are using tried and true hypnotic techniques disguised as slogans and distortions to dismantle the minds of people who are not in the habit of thinking for themselves. It is their hope that with their constant litanies of hate speech, that they can get some ‘un-hinged’ people to further cross the line into breaking serious laws.  Why would the Republicans, Conservatives, Tea Party Movement, KKK and Neo-Nazi groups want this? So that they can say, “We told you so. We told you that our ‘freedom of speech’ would be hindered under Obama. We told you that our freedoms would be curtailed.”  It is a crime to engage in hate speech and act upon it, yet they act like they do not know this. What drivel! They know this all too well. How many lawyers, huh?

They are inciting violence, hatred as well as  naming targets 24/7. They are creating their own ticking ‘time bombs.’ When there is an act dastardly enough for any of their leaders to be investigated, they will say, “See, we told you that it was just a matter of time. We told you that our freedom of speech would eventually be in jeopardy. Now, do you believe us?” “Who is with us?” This is their real purpose for talking like the psychotic. It is to induce psychosis in those who are already in this state of mind. It is to goad and give license for the sociopath, psychopath, homocidal maniac, arsonist, vandalist and anarchist to act. It is that simple. They are desperatly wanting to be right… about something…about anything at this point of a complete political rout. I say, that when they have pushed the masses over the edge into serious criminal activities,  go after the Dr. Frankensteins!

REPUBLICAN POLITICAL NARCISSISM EMBOLDENS AL-QAEDA

The party of “No” has given comfort to our enemies. They have sent a signal of insurrection and division to those who have declared our destruction as their chief objective. Their political narcissism has portrayed us as a country divided; a country who will not rally around our newly elected President. The “sore loser” Republican party has gotten squarely behind the “turf-movement” of the tea party crowd. Fox News, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Joe Wilson, as well as all of the formerly sane Republican Congressman and Senators have sold all of us out  for political advantage. They have forgotten that there are “real” enemies who vow the destruction of the United States and its allies.

Imagine the glee from Al-Qaeda operatives derived from watching Joe Wilson say, “you lie” when the President of The United States was speaking before the Senate and Congress. Imagine the joy Al-Qaeda gets when they hear the litanies from Fox News operatives about their “plans” to not support the President, about how they will conduct their efforts to dismantle his Presidency. Imagine the excitement as Al-Qaeda  plans their new attacks on our soil, because all they can see is a country divided.   “…a house divided against itself cannot stand…” 

Now, the Republican Party will have the audacity of blaming the Administration for the “underwear bomber.”  I  suggest to you that neither the White House nor its administration is what has emboldened our enemies; it is the likes of Dick Cheney who refuses to leave his “bunker of treachery” in Washington.  He refuses to allow this new President to do the job of cleaning up the mess that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld left behind. Treachery lies in the mantras of treason shouted by Fox News, Palin, Bachman, Limbaugh now even McCain. Are the 2010 elections more important to the Republicans than the safety of the American people?

I cannot sit idly by and allow all of the pundits to forget how we have been perceived by other countries because of all of the flagrant direspect to the Executive Branch. Al-Qaeda has been waiting for a breach of unity to “finish us off.” It has nothing to do with the President trying to mend the broken fences of diplomacy all over the world. It has more to do with the Republican Confederacy. The attacks made upon our soil are becoming pallid compared to the attacks upon our government by these Republican insurrectionists.

Dick Cheney is calling President Obama “soft” on the “enemy. ” His real motive for doing so, is his attempt to keep the skeletons within his closet from falling out during NYC trials.  When Fox News has been pounding its drum for resistance against the”tyrant” Obama, I suggest to you that they have been telegraphing this great divide to those who really want to hurt us. In their narcissistic lust for political power, they have  in fact, sold all of us out. They should never be rewarded for their stance of  “no,” by putting them back in power.  These so called “patriots” or “real Americans” look like nests of Benedict Arnolds. This country should never forget the climate established by their treachery when re-elections come around. For Republicans it was never about the well-being of the  American people, but rather about their narcissistic ambition for complete political power.

REPUBLICANS: OBAMA WILL NOT BE TOPPLED

I have held my peace during the post-election/inaugural period. Now, the Republicans have attempted to pepper the people with fears of an incompetent Obama administration.  Now, the Republicans say that they want a stimulus bill, they just don’t want a huge mistake that the tax payer will be weighed down with for countless years to come.  News flash…honest, working people pay their taxes year in and year out. They will continue to pay them until they stop breathing. The wealthy have been shown to skirt this ritual with unusual success.

Now,  former Vice-President Cheney is conducting interviews from what looked like a utility closet. Cheney,  an irrelevant by-word, is not a prophet. He is a reptilian.  His job is to keep the masses in fear and convince them that they are constantly unsafe. How dare he continue to espouse these opinions in an authoritative manner when he is just as much a private a citizen as the rest of us?  The paranoid-megaphone, Rush Limbaugh, is able to get twenty million people to listen to his convoluted thinking while he speaks with a drug-addled mind. Also, let us not forget:  Limbaugh failed with his “plan chaos” strategy. 

McCain’s poor judgement has now become a well-spring of wisdom? Former President Bush escaped into the Texas suburbs, disgraced. Karl Rove is balancing on a wire. The Republican party is still unable to manage through the grieving process. They still place daily offerings at the feet of their idol, Ronald Regan.  They do not care for the American people. They care for the rich among them. They also want to stop the prosecution of their fearless leaders for their plethera of clandestine,  heinous acts.

Now, the truth: this stimulus bill will begin to stave off hemorrhaging from multiple sites of the economy in order to sustain life.  If there is NO attempt to stop the bleeding,  the people will suffer far more than the continuance of their quarterly/yearly tax ordeal. The Republicans are NOT thinking about average citizens. They LIE!! They just want Obama to fail because his success will exact a high price upon their party. They will wander in the proverbial wilderness for many years to come. Michael Steele will not be able to save the day.

What is left of the Republican party,  has decided that the best way regain control is to pattern themselves as insurgents (using the pattern of terrorists) in order to topple the Obama presidency. The term bipartisan is a dirty word to them. They want a complete destruction of President Obama. Our new President held out an olive branch to them and they responded by holding out a fistful of poison oak.  They mistook President Obama’s kindness for weakness- big mistake!

They will fail. Their false-front shall fail. Every thing that they set their hands to do will fail. Oh, Rush, you cannot curse what God has already blessed. This is very Old Testament. With all of your listeners, and all of your money, you will fail. You are not a righteous man. You may have deceived many, but God knows the intentions of your heart.  It is not for the good of the people of the United States of America.  It is for the good of your diluted, compromised Republican party. There is a special judgement with your name on it.  Since you peddle fear,  sudden fear shall be your portion.

ABOUT DEATH THREATS AGAINST OBAMA & VIOLENCE AGAINST SUPPORTERS

What this election has done is to push cowardly racism to the surface of our society. This has been a dirty little secret submerged underground by those in power and uneducated bigots, alike. The only glimpse that we have gotten to see, since the Civil Rights Movement, have been isolated cases and an occassional surreal visual on the Jerry Springer show. Nevertheless, the recruiting going on with the Aryan Nation/white supremacist groups has hit an all time high with the election of President Obama. Those who threaten are obviously unaware that the same measures used to detect the presence of terrorist activities within the United States, will flush them out, as well.

Lately, there has been the tragic case of a woman who drove from Oklahoma to join a “wannabe” KKK initiation ceremony ninety miles north of New Orleans. When she changed her mind in the middle of this ceremony, she was killed, her possessions burned and she was dumped along the side of the road with bungling brush to cover her. It was quickly discovered that this group (who recruited this young woman from the internet) was not a part of the infamous KKK. It was just a group of angry, uneducated racists who were itching for violence against blacks. If this is what they do to potential recruits, how dare they call their mandate “a God-given right?”  It is absurd.

Sarah Palin has blood upon her hands, yet she is still being courted and followed. I’ll bet that she is losing more sleep over the $150,000.00 worth of clothes purchased by the RNC than she is about the $150,000.00 worth of guns bought at one store in Tennessee the day after the election. Governor Sarah Palin, while plowing through the lower forty-eight, stirred up the darkest elements of fear in people who were afraid of change-they liked things just the way they were (before the economic bottom fell out.) Nevermind, the country had been sacked by the greedy, leaving only the needy to fend for themselves. Nevermind, the entire global economy had been destabilized under a Republican administration.

What was needed was a “scapegoat.” I believe that the “white is right” crowd will act out upon blacks, because ninety-five percent of blacks stood for hours to vote because they could! These Aryan nation/white supremacist groups were already getting geared up because of the perceived “illegal immigration” threat. Now that there is a President-elect Obama, they have their fuel for violence against all non-white citizens whom they feel might have voted for President-elect Obama.

I just read an article which expressed the frustration of these groups who claimed to have built this country and were not going to sit by and let it go to the blacks. News flash: the soil of this country was fertilized by the blood of the many extinct Native American tribes that existed here for centuries before Europeans came and was built up by the hands of black slaves. Even the White House had to do with the working hands of slaves. Threatening young black children, vandalizing and desecrating the property of black families and random violence cannot change this. Now is the season for the back of racism to be broken in the earth. The religious spirits who hide an agenda of racism will be exposed for what they are.

Those who are on talk show radio who malign President-elect Obama will begin to experience personal losses. Those who use the media to continue to divide and not reconcile will be left by a world more concerned with staving off food shortages, than picking on a race or group of people due to ethnicity or religion.  Bigotry has got to stop. All hate groups who are recruiting will be caught by the authorities. Isolated acts of violence will be investigated to a satisfactory conclusion.  The expression, “the South shall rise again” will not ring true.  Subterranean racists groups who have been flushed out by this election shall find themselves being prosecuted in a courts of law. It does not bode well, for violent bigotry. The days of unprosecuted white-hooded sheet-fests are over.

It is written: “…the first shall be last and the last shall be first…” All of the Catholic Churches who refuse communion to those who voted for Obama should have been more active over the past thirty years since Roe vs. Wade. There were many who could have worked tirelessly to get it overturned. Where was this policy when President Bill Clinton was in office and pro-choice? I never heard that those who chose to expose or ignore  priest-pedophellia could not receive Communion. This is just a smokescreen for fear and hatred. Fear is not of faith, therefore not of God. One who hates has the spirit of murder, according to the Word. What Bible are these people reading?  The spirit of error has been released upon the earth. Those in the pews should do well to read the Bible for themselves and not depend on the Pastor to interpret for them. Who is to say that the pastor is not a “flawed vessel?”

This next statement is a prophetic decree: “…accursed are the works of darkness…” and “…this affliction shall not arise a second time…” I will stand upon my decree from the Word of God against any random, demonic activity dressed up as righteousness in the earth.

“THE LADY DOTH PROTEST TOO MUCH…”

To quote the late , great William Shakespeare, why is Governor Sarah Palin still on the news repeating herself? Governor  Sarah Palin has said, ” I had nothing to do with the $150,000.000 worth of clothing given to me during the campaign and I will not be keeping the clothes.” Well, that should have been the end of her comments about “clothesgate.” From the moment Palin got off of the plane in outer Siberia,  oops, I mean Alaska, she has been beating the air regarding anonymous comments made about her. It matters little if her Evangelical following still adores her, it matters little if she was a lightning rod for her GOP presidential campaign, it matters little if she was not properly vetted or handled. She IS concerned about what “leper” or should I say “snake” was responsible for devulging those “erroneous comments” about her. 

It does not appear as if Governor Palin is forward-looking enough, unless the purpose of beating these dead horses is to keep her face in the media as much as possible. I think that it is safe to say that nobody will forget Sarah Palin, should her face not appear daily. How could we? We were there when she did all that was asked of her in terms of ugly innuendo regarding President-elect Obama. We were there when she whipped the “fringe element” into a bloody-frenzy, we were there to hear all of the sordid allegations regarding President-elect Obama. Then, we heard this, “I look forward to working with President Obama on energy…” This does not sound like anyone who genuinly believed the acidic-sputum flowing from their lips (destined to incinerate reputations and campaigns.) This sounds like a serious political survivor, to me.

All I ask,  is that Governor Palin do herself a favor and stop stepping in poo. Let her breathe deeply and not have a knee-jerk reaction to the “betrayals” that she perceives. If she expects to have a political future, she needs to know that fire will die without oxygen. Fanning the flames will just make the fire burn more furiously.  She needs to think about that Senate seat which might become available soon, as well as the material that she has promised Tina Fey, and her journalism degree.  She also needs to conduct herself with dignity, should the GOP decide to make her the Republican “phoenix,” rising out of the ashes of their dead hopes and dreams for this past election.  She should read all that she can, be an apt pupil of geography, world history, and political history. She should, in short, spend her time doing anything but protesting something which will die, unless stoked by her incindiary, vindictive streak. This aimless, flailing about will not serve her well.

CONDOLENCES TO THE OBAMA FAMILY

I want to personally express my condolences to Senator Obama and his entire family for the loss of his beloved grandmother. We must all pray for him to have the strength to finish the race. This will be a bitter-sweet victory for Senator Obama, and I am sure that he and his grandmother said their farewells when he left the campaign trail to see her recently. I would like to offer a poem regarding the loss of a loved one. I know that his grandmother is watching from Heaven and will celebrate with the cloud of witnessess his victory tomorrow.

LOVE’S
DEPARTURE

Love never
announces
its departure.
It does have
death rales
towards
the end;
the sound
of a man
drowning
in his own
bodily fluids.
Love’s au revoir
never has
the stench of
end-stage cancer.
It is even
more fragrant in
the leaving.
Still…
so much
unfufilled hope in
its unfolded petals;
left listless in
the wind-
a withered brown.
