The Crumbling Foundation of America
The Crumbling Foundation of America
With so much going on you never can stay on top of one
political item before it is shoved aside for another. The pace this
administration is going through scandals, questionable decisions and outright
telling the American people they don’t give a damn about them is astonishing to
say the least.
Democrats found out long ago they can champion causes that
challenge the establishment because the establishment never moves. What I am
talking about are loyal constitutional conservatives. Countries, like houses need
solid foundations to sit atop otherwise they twist, bend and eventually
crumble. Democrats went from championing the causes of blue collar working
Americans to championing divisive demographic causes.
Since WWII, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton stayed close to
the pulse of America. Many things they did in office turned out to be
disastrous for the country but many of those were not by design to be that way,
they were following bad advice of trusted sources. Harry Trumann & JFK
believed that people were best served when allowed the whole of America to
dictate America’s direction but believed government had a duty to apply as many
of those wishes as possible even if it meant bumping up against the Constitution
to do it.
FDR was the biggest presidential threats to American
liberties since WWII before January 2009. FDR believed in socialism and put a
few cracks in the foundation of this country to achieve many of his ideas.
While he did do some good in the short term, in the long term most of his ideas
detracted from the ideas and the boundaries of laws set forth by our Founding
Fathers to constrain government. Dwight Eisenhower’s biggest failure was to
allow many of FDR’s ideas remain in place. Most should have had expiration
dates. But what do you expect; FDR was Eisenhower’s Commander in Chief.
The biggest difference between Roosevelt and Obama is that
Roosevelt believed with his heart he was doing what was right for the country.
Obama acts like he believes America needs to be taken down in world stature
while removing the power of the people because they are neither worthy of nor
educated enough to deserve having such power.
Obama is not the champion of the blue collar worker. Obama
is not a democrat and could care less about the party. Obama is a narcissist
who learned to use the party to achieve a means to control those he deems as
dumber than he.
Barack Obama – November 2008: “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my
speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my
policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better
political director than my political director.”
Obama believes his destiny is to tear America down so it can
be rebuilt much in the same manner Rome so it will collapse and crumble under
its own weight. How do you accomplish this? Well, you certainly can’t tear down
a house from the outside in without people noticing and neither can you do it
to a country. You can’t tear up the main floor of a house without your friends
and neighbors knowing it. Besides, you have to remove the debris and then
everyone will now it. So we still have to accomplish destroying the house.
Burning it down is totally out of the question and you have to do so no one
knows what you are doing. You attack the foundation. You pound it until it
crumbles. Since it is under the house, no need to haul off any chunks. If you
do it in the daylight it appears you are repairing it even though it was solid
and sound before you started. If you do it at night, people only then will
Demolition teams bring down structures by precisely placing
explosive charges in exact spots to implode a building. Knock out a house
foundation in such a manner and the house will crumble upon itself and not
Let’s think about some of the acts by Obama and his
administration hat could possibly fracture the foundation of this country:
1. Ordering the Environmental
Protection Agency to implement portions of the Cap & Trade bill that failed
to pass in the U.S. Senate.
2. Ordering implementation of portions
of the “Dream Act” that failed to pass in Congress.
3. Orchestrating a government
takeover of a major part of the automobile industry in 2009.
4. Ordering a moratorium on new
offshore oil and gas exploration and production without approval of Congress.
5. Signing an Executive Order on
March 16, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch extraordinary powers to
control and allocate resources such as food, water, energy and health care
resources etc. in the interest of vaguely defined national defense issues. It
would amount to a complete government takeover of the U.S. economy.
6. Signing an Executive Order on
July 6, 2012 giving himself and the Executive branch the power to control all
methods of communications in the United States based on a Presidential
declaration of a national emergency.
7. Signing an Executive Order on
January 6, 2013 that contained 23 actions designed to limit the individual
right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the
8. Amending portions of the
Affordable Healthcare Act and other laws passed by Congress without
Congressional approval as required by Article 1 of the Constitution.
9.Issuing Executive orders in
January 2014 amending the HIPPA law to allow the turning over of confidential
medical records to Federal agencies if there is any information to be used to
add individuals to the NICS list to prohibit them from purchasing firearms.
10. Having the EPA impose regulations
on the coal industry that will force many utility companies and coal mines out
of business. This will cost the U.S. economy thousands of jobs and dramatically
increase the cost of energy to the public. This is being done without
11. Hindering the ability of the U.S.
Border Patrol Agency to not only stop illegal immigration, but to stop human
and drug trafficking.
12. Removing the work requirement
from welfare reform legislation without Congressional approval.
13. Using Executive privilege to
block Congress from getting documents relating to the DOJ’s Operation Fast and
Furious and the death of U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry.
14. Had members of his administration
provide false information about the act of terrorism committed in Benghazi,
Libya on September 11, 2012 and refusing to allow the State Department and
other federal agencies to cooperate in the Congressional investigation.
15. Falsely labeled the mass murder
of American soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas as “workplace violence” instead of the
act of Islamic terrorism it was.
16. Falsely labeling the IRS
targeting of conservative and Christian groups as a “phony” scandal and
refusing to order an active pursuit of the investigation into who was
17. Refusing to order an independent
investigation of the actions of Eric Holder and the DOJ in targeting the phone
records of members of the news media.
18. Telling the American people on a
television show that the NSA was not prying into the emails and phone calls of
Americans when the facts prove otherwise.
19. Telling the American people on a
television show that the NSA was not prying into the emails and phone calls of
Americans when the facts prove otherwise.
20. Having the Department of
Health and Human Services order religious institutions and businesses owned by
religious families to provide their employees free contraception and other
services that are contrary to their religious beliefs. This is being done under
the auspices of the Affordable Health Care Act and violates the religious freedom
clauses of the First Amendment.
21. Having the military place
restrictions on the religious freedom of Chaplains and other members of the
military in order to favor gay rights advocates and atheists in violation of
the First Amendment.
22. Having the military place
restrictions on the freedom of speech of members of the military and the
civilian employees of the DOD in violation of their rights under the First
23. Using Executive orders and
government agency actions to limit Second Amendment rights. This includes
actions by the Veterans Administration to disarm American veterans without due
process as required by the Fifth Amendment.
24. Having the National Security
Agency intercept and monitor the private communications of millions of
Americans without a court order and in violation of the Fourth Amendment.
25. Joining with foreign
governments in lawsuits against sovereign U.S. states to prohibit them from
enforcing immigration laws. This is in violation of the Tenth Amendment.
26. Filing suits under the
Voting Rights Act against sovereign U.S. states to prevent them from enforcing
Voter ID laws despite rulings by the Supreme Court upholding these laws. This
is another violation of the Tenth Amendment and the balance of powers.
27. Having the IRS propose new
regulations on conservative 501 (C ) (4) organizations to limit their freedom
of speech and political activities during election cycles in violation of the
First Amendment to the Constitution.
28. Having the FCC prepare new rules
on internet neutrality in violation of the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court
striking down such regulations.
29. Having the FCC institute a plan
to place agents in newsrooms of radio and television stations as well as print
media to monitor whether they are providing the “proper” news content to the
public, a direct violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution.
30. Having the Secretary of
State sign the U.N. Small Arms Treaty despite the opposition of a majority of
the U.S. Senate and with full awareness that the implementation of the treaty
would violate the Second Amendment rights of American citizens.
31. In the name of “political
correctness,” he imposed unnecessary and dangerous rules of engagement on our
troops in combat causing them to lose offensive and defensive capabilities and
putting them in danger. Many American service personnel have been killed or
wounded as a result of this policy.
32. Releasing the identity of
American military personnel and units engaged in dangerous and secret
operations such as the killing of Osama bin Laden by Navy Seal team 6.
33. Article 1, Section 8 of the
Constitution gives Congress the exclusive power to declare war. Yet, without
consulting Congress President Obama ordered the American military into action
34. Having the Attorney General tell

requiring states to timely send absentee ballots to military personnel.
Rules of Engagement on the active military in war zones that have unnecessarily
endangered the lives of American soldiers.

in order to enhance his political image. Such leaks place the lives of U.S.
soldiers in danger.
being informed in 2009 of problems in the Veterans Administration involving
treatment of veterans, took no action improve the situation, but instead
ordered the VA to spend a major part of its budget on green energy projects at
VA facilities instead on veteran care.
the lives of members of the American military and American civilians by
negotiating with terrorists to trade five high level Taliban leaders in
exchange for an American soldier who deserted his post and his fellow soldiers.
In addition, he did the foregoing action in violation of Federal law since he
did not provide the legally required thirty day notice to members of Congress
of his intent to release prisoners from Guantanamo Bay.
refuse to enforce immigration laws passed by Congress in violation of Article
2, Section 3 of the Constitution, and further has used illegal and
unconstitutional Executive orders to grant amnesty or de-facto amnesty to
illegal aliens currently in the United States.
deliberately destroyed the morale and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents by
interfering with their attempts to fulfill their oath of office and enforce
laws legally passed by the U.S. Congress.
deliberate actions encouraged parents of thousands of children in Central
America to send their children, often unaccompanied by adults, across the U.S.
border and then asking for billions of taxpayer dollars to care for these
Border Patrol and Department of Homeland Security to place thousands of these
children on buses or planes and dumping them in communities around the country;
often without any prior notifications to the local elected officials in these
TSA to let these children, as well as possible teenage gang members and
unidentified to fly in U.S. Airlines at taxpayer expense without proper
identification required by Federal law.
to respond to lawful requests by Governors of the southern Border States to
close the Southern border to any further illegal immigration and has created a
severe financial crisis for Border States and other states in order to advance
his own political agenda.
the release of thousands of illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious
crimes in the U.S. to be released and stay in the country after they have
served their sentences. This violates the requirements of Federal law that such
people be immediately deported.
immediate release of approximately 68,000 other criminals in Federal prisons
that have been convicted of drug offenses. These actions endanger the lives and
property of honest and law abiding American citizens that the President is
legally and constitutionally required to protect.
authorized the IRS, HHS, BATF, DHS, and EPA to propose new regulations not
authorized by Congress that will adversely affect the rights of Americans
protected by the First, Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments to the
Read each and every one of these. In some fashion, each is designed to
tear at the morality, freedom and liberties, religious or other basic principle

Even when these are done in the name of the Greater Good, is it? Usually
not because it takes from one and gives to another. We have un unsustainable
national debt. We have an immoral budget deficit. We went from 2 page to 2000
page laws that no one understands nor reads but continue to be passed by
congress. We have judges that refuse to recognize the 10th
amendment. We have career politicians that only care about their own power and
hanging on to it.
America so far stands not because of government but in spite of it, but
that too will soon disappear. Public education is not locally controlled but
is union and federal government controlled. Students are being taught with more
frequency that government is the answer and government is always right. The
“Greater Good” is a concept our children are being brainwashed with.
There is precious little time remaining to reverse this trend. If “WE THE
PEOPLE” don’t take our country back soon, we are destined to become to Canada
what Mexico is to the United States.
I have repeated these words in every social media available to me since
2007 and have only witnessed America spiraling further and further into
oblivion. We have on the 2016 election left to bring America back from what is
sure to be a slow and painful death but we must not wait until then to raise
our conservative voices. Our vote was our voice earlier this month, now we use
our actual voices and continually remind those we just elected why we elected
them and why we agreed to send them to Washington while always remember they
are public servants – THEY WORK FOR “WE THE PEOPLE”.
Fifties something guy, with a political view, but not in your face with it. Don't ask my opinion about politics if you don't want it, but I don't start conversations about it when meeting you for the first time. I have so many interests, that I don't pigeon hole into one catagory. I have written a book, and been published, it's about the care I gave my parents in their last years, it's a story of love, care, and dedication.
“Even sadder that so many of us are so blind and stupid, just living our lives daily and letting "smarter" people 'run' our lives."
"Thank God for people like you.”
“This is so horrible....how can one be so advanced and so naive at the same time..”
“Well if you were a politician, you would have my vote. I have a great deal of respect for intelligence...especially when I agree with most of your thoughts, almost visions."
"So many things 'we' stood for are getting lost and no one seems to be taking notice.”
"Your ideas, and thoughts are well researched, great job!"
"I really felt like you are really ‘in tune’ to what is really happening…so I ‘depend’ on your wisdom.. "
"Thanks for sharing all your findings Al. You have been such a big help with my decision. I knew in my heart that McCain should be our leader, but you sure made me all the more convinced…and the people I have forwarded your emails to feel the same way, I’m sure. I still think you ought to ‘run’ for an office, open some eyes around here"
I just want to thank you for being such a great American. I have always been interested in politics but now that I have a son, I really am quite interested. And to be honest, I really feel for him and what he is going to have to put up with in the future. My one saving grace is the fact that when I was his age we also had an awful President in office and fortunately the Great Ronald Reagan came riding in on his horse to save us. Hopefully in 2012 someone will come swooping in and save us. I appreciate the posts that you put on letting the world know of the crimes that most of the press won't let the world see. Well I am just in one of those moods tonight and I am rambling on but I just wanted to thank you. I would always love to get more involved in politics and if there is ever a place that you think I could come in and help please don't hesitate to ask.

My Personal Beliefs ( so you know where I'm coming from)
I believe, that the United States of America is the best country in the world bar none.
I believe, the founding fathers wrote the Constitution of our country based on their belief in Christianity, and encouraged the practice of all religions but not at the expense of the others.
I believe, the Supreme Court should interpret the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.
I believe, the Constitution is a legal document, and not a living document subjected to constant change.
I believe, the course to peace is based on strong military, strong principles, and not a pacifist denial approach.
I believe, the second amendment is the right of every citizen in our country, and people not guns are the cause of murder.
I believe, in the death penalty as a form of public compliance to our laws.
I believe, a declared “hate crime” should not just be limited to describe the victimization of one race, or religion, but should be applied equally.
I believe, taxes are necessary to run our country and benefit our citizens, and not to give to foreign governments to “buy” friendships.
I believe, the government should have no right to tax a dead man’s estate on money he has already paid taxes on.
I believe, the President should have the power of the Line Item Veto.
I believe, that Senator’s and Congressmen should have term limits the same as the other elected officials.
I believe, that Senators and Congressmen should eliminate the word “entitlements” from their vocabulary.
I believe, that taxation in our country is disproportionate according to annual salaries, and serves to polarize citizens within the system.
I believe, “Affirmative Action” is neither affirmative nor action, and should be eliminated, as it’s just another form of prejudice.
I believe, that “pork barrel” or “earmarks” should be eliminated, as they are detrimental to budgetary constraints of our country.
I believe, in a balanced budget amendment with the exception of a declaration of war.
I believe, that if it’s so easy to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for a Presidential Position that pays $400K a year, then the amount raised should be taxed.
I believe, in governing our own country, and never handing power of a New World Order to the United Nations for any treaty.
I believe, to insure the safety of our citizens, we need to secure our borders and enforce existing immigration, and hiring laws.
I believe, that English should be formally declared our official language, and should be used in business dealings at home, and English should be taught in school systems to mainstream students.
I believe, that immigrants to our country should be made to assimilate to our culture, and not the other way around.
I believe, global warming is a reality, but to declare that man made emissions are the main cause, based primarily on computer based models, is akin to believing that weathermen can predict next week’s weather based on a “preponderance of evidence.”
There is one areas I don't agree with the official Republican Platform:
I believe in Gay, and Lesbian Rights
I do not believe in same sex marriage though
I want to welcome everyone to my blog site. Everything you see is my opinion only. As we all know some sources are better then others, and when I see them as questionable, or open for conjecture, I back them up with another source. However, unfortunately, sometimes even these sources can be wrong, and if that is the case, I apologize. When researching a subject, my aim is to find the truth, and the facts and links to back it up. I don't take a position lightly, I research first and form an opinion from the collection of facts. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my research, because not everyone can devote the time to do this.......... because this work represents hours of time invested, if you copy and paste an article please insert a link back to my blog.
