Mises and Madison

"With respect to the two words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the DETAIL of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a METAMORPHOSIS of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators." -April 20, 1831 Letter from James Madison (dubbed Father of the U.S. Constitution for his role in drafting of the text; see also The Federalist Papers, published on behalf of the American system as one of limited government of by and for the people of A Free Republic)~

"MODERN CRYPTODESPOTISM, which arrogates to itself the name of liberalism, finds fault with the negativity of the concept of freedom. The censure is spurious as it refers merely to the grammatical form of the idea and does not comprehend that all civil rights can be as well defined in affirmative as in negative terms. THEY ARE NEGATIVE AS THEY ARE DESIGNED TO OBVIATE AN EVIL, NAMELY THE OMNIPOTENCE OF THE POLICE POWER [OF GOVERNMENT], AND TO PREVENT THE STATE FROM BECOMING TOTALITARIAN." -Ludwig von Mises in chapter 21, The Theory of Money and Credit~

Jack Webb Schools Obama on America

The Obama File [Please Watch For Updates]:

by John Hindedraker/Kevin Mooney - Collateral Damage: Lost Gulf Rigs from Obama Obstructionism (10 down, more to go?) More here:
and Here:

"Kevin Mooney tabulates the damage that the Obama administration is doing [...] 'Ten oil rigs have left the Gulf of Mexico since the Obama administration imposed a moratorium on deepwater oil and gas drilling in May 2010 and others could follow soon... The rigs have left the Gulf for locations in Egypt, Congo, French Guiana, Liberia, Nigeria and Brazil. [...] Moreover, eight other rigs that were planned for the Gulf have been detoured away [...] What you are seeing in Louisiana is only a small piece of a larger mosaic being put together by the Obama Administration to make affordable energy as inaccessible as possible,' [...] From the administration's war on coal to the serious consideration it is giving to imposing a nationwide regulation of hydraulic fracturing [...] to its endangerment finding from the EPA [...] the administration is practicing its own form of selected industrial sabotage.'"

"The Obama administration announced last week that it would suspend deportation proceedings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security or public safety [...] Only last month, addressing The Race, Obama disclaimed the authority to reform immigration policy on his own [...] 1. The new policy [...] extends a welcome mat to those who have not yet made it to the United States illegally and are able to make it over the border through self-help. It might make sense as part of comprehensive immigration reform. By itself, it is a serious mistake. 2. The new policy undercuts American sovereignty. For Obama and liberals of the New York Times variety, this is an attraction. For the rest of us, not so much. 3. THE NEW POLICY IS FORMULATED IN TERMS OF PROSECUTORIAL DISCRETION AND THE WISE USE OF RESOURCES, BUT THIS IS SIMPLY DISINGENUOUS - PUBLIC RELATIONS FOR CHUMPS. 4. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION has aastronomically increased the budgets of federal agencies virtually since the day it took office. If additional resources are needed for immigration enforcement, the administration could seek to reallocate the necessary funds from other federal agencies or from elsewhere in the federal budget. 5. One would think that in a post 9/11 world, immigration enforcement would be among our highest law enforcement priorities. 6. The new policy is pure politics. With an eye to the 2012 election, it is geared to pump up members of The Race and others of their persuasion. 7. The new policy is one that does not enjoy political support. DEMOCRATS WERE UNABLE TO PASS IT AS LAW WHEN THEY CONTROLLED BOTH BRANCHES OF CONGRESS DURING THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. 8. THE ADOPTION OF THE NEW POLICY AS A MATTER OF EXECUTIVE FIAT IS THEREFORE PROFOUNDLY OFFENSIVE TO OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT."

Obama Regime Tripled Down on Failure - and Faults the Tea Party?
by Rush Limbaugh
"The group that forced this debt discussion in the first place, the only group to offer an actual plan to reduce the deficit: The Tea party. By the way, where is David Axelrod's plan to reduce the deficit? Where is John F. Kerry's plan to reduce the deficit? And where is Obama's plan to reduce the deficit? And where is Nancy Pelosi's plan, and where is Steny Hoyer's plan? Where is Maxine Waters' plan? THEY HAVEN'T PRESENTED A BUDGET IN OVER 800 DAYS [...] They have no plan whatsoever other than to preside over this disaster [...] MEANWHILE, WE ARE SUPPOSED TO FORGET THE DEMOCRATS HAD SUPERMAJORITIES IN BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE FOR MOST OF THE LAST TWO YEARS, AND THEY DIDN'T ONCE PASS ONE BILL TO RAISE TAXES. They had their chance, but THE DEMOCRATS don't want to raise taxes unless [they can get away with it and] blame REPUBLICANS for it. That's how concerned they are about saving the country [...] Whatever doesn't work, we do it again -- even more vigorously than when we did it the first time -- and if doesn't work the second time we get even more excited and we triple down on it. THIS REGIME HAS TAKEN WHAT DOESN'T WORK AND ADDED TO IT. So on Friday, August 21st, Obama leaves for vacation. They have a little document dump and say, 'Oh, by the way, we had a little miscalculation. We were wrong the other day. Our national debt's gonna go up by $2 trillion as a result of policies to date.' THAT WAS AS OF TWO YEARS AGO. FOLKS, THAT IS HIS FIRST YEAR! Dingy Harry is trying to blame the Tea Party. The Tea Party is the only group that has ever pushed for real deficit reduction [...] the only group to offer a plan to reduce the deficit. It was called CUT, CAP, AND BALANCE. Yet, according to Axelrod [Obama's Campaign Manager, the Democrat Party and the rest of the LIEberal Socialist Communist propaganda appartatus] the downgrade is all the Tea Party's fault! That's what liberals call 'logic,' and the rest of the world calls laughable bald-faced lies."

The Chosen One
by Angelo Codevilla

"...Since the days of KARL MARX's First International a century and a half ago, this very human opposition between socialist theory (egalitarianism) and socialist reality (oligarchic oppression) has bedeviled the Left. Marx laid the problem bare in his 'Critique of the Gotha Program' (1875). Lenin dealt with it honestly and brutally in 'What Is to Be Done?'' (1902) - the foundational document of Communism. By Acknowledging that the Communist Party is not the common people's representative, but rather its 'vanguard,' Leninists were comfortable with a party responsible only to itself and to history, a party that openly demanded deference from the humans whose habitats it forcibly reshaped. Communism's undeniable horrors forced the New Left to disassociate itself from 'What Is to Be Done?' and once again to pretend that its socialism was neither oligarchic nor coercive, that somehow it was on the side of ordinary folks. This is a much tougher sell in the 21st century than it was in the 19th. Contemporary socialists try to explain away the common man's suspicion of them as harbingers of oligarchy, corruption, and coercion by resorting to jargon (e.g., 'false consciousness' and 'socio-economic anxiety'). But that is ever less convincing. This is why the movement argues so strenuously with itself about whether and how much it should dissimulate its agenda."
