A Culture of Corruption

February 7, 2011

Here’s something to think about…

I remember asking dad about Castro when I was about 9 years old.  I asked, “Is Castro a good guy or bad?”  Dad said he couldn’t tell!!  This was about 1955.  We were living in Louisiana at the time.  Dad was in the army there.

Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot.  The Cubans were asking the same question! Ike was president.

This past July, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a refugee from Cuba.  Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most. This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960s. His family was more fortunate than most as they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro’s newly formed revolutionary paradise.

Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, watermelon and fresh ears of sweet corn.  This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide, while celebrating the birth of our beloved America on the Fourth of July.

We began with a simple discussion about our country and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power.  We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington.

But then he said it.  The sentence came naturally.  I assume it was unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train.  “You know when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist.”

We sat stunned.  He continued, “Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist.  Before the revolution he didn’t sound like a radical.”

The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, “You mean just like Barack Obama?”

He responded; “Yes, just like Barack Obama.”

He continued, “We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power.  First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your guns.  We all complied.”

“I remember my uncle saying after it started, ‘Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries, he will never come and take our family hardware store.’ But that is exactly what happened; Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store.  My family had run this store for generations.  They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us.  And that nice, large four-bedroom home you own, it is now our property also, and you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house because others are moving in with you.”

The lesson learned from this discussion is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear.  Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office they can take totally unexpected turns.

If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors would be nationalized, we would have never believed it.  We could never contemplate a country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society would be evaporating just like it did in Castro’s Cuba in the early 1960s.

But the news of injustice keeps increasing.  Black Panthers are not charged with wrongdoing by the U.S. Department of Justice because their crimes are against whites. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their assets without due process by the government.  Governmental leaders are bribed in full daylight only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled by the Attorney General. The U.S. borders are overrun with crime and illegal activity and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers while the innocent are killed and overrun.  When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed and threatened as racists and bigots.  They are sued by the very administration entrusted with enforcing the law.

Without the rule of law the U.S. Constitution is a sham. Without the rule of law our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As Michelle Malkin has so eloquently explained in her recent book, a culture of corruption has replaced honest government.

The only way this problem will be fixed is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens that want to be treated equally must come together and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law end now.  And yes, it can happen here.

PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW …

And may God save the United States of America!

One More Obama Scandal

September 1, 2010

WILL THIS EVER HIT THE COURTS?

This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon’s Watergate or Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed?

Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler,  like GM, was in dire financial straits and federal government “graciously” offered to “buy the company” and keep them out of bankruptcy and “save jobs.”

Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, “Too big to fail,” same story with GM.

The feds organized their “Automotive Task Force” to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House’s official Car Czar – literally, that’s what his title is. Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM.

Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler ‘had made this list of dealerships’. Not true!

The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox News and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the “Automotive Task Force” headed by no one other than Mr. Steve Rattner.

Now the plot thickens

Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed?

Actually there’s a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection. Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government, 788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only “Democratic” dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary’s campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama’s campaign.

Does that seem a little odd to you?

Steve Rattner is the guy who put the list together. Well, he happens to be married to a Maureen White. Maureen happens to be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such, she has access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation- Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky “coincidence,” we’re certain.

Then comes another really wacky “coincidence.”

On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas , North Louisiana , and Southern Missouri.  It seems that Bill Clinton’s former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealership in that region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson. Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier.

These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers. Interestingly, none of their dealerships were ordered closed – not one! While all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were! Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down.

Thus by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have virtual MONOPOLY on Chrysler sales in their zone.  Isn’t that amazing?

Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story’s there, and it’s in a dozen or so other web-based news organizations; this isn’t being made up.

Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Workers union! Fiat owns 20%. The other 15% is still privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn’t want to run the auto industry.

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America, it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because they don’t agree with his political agenda.

This is stuff you see on the news happening in other countries where there are DICTATORS, and it’s happening right here, right now, in our back yard.

There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the “Automotive Task Force” has released no information to the public or to any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done.

Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you’ve ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and demand an investigation into this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, “All that’s necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

Car Czar No More

An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama’s Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom.

According to CBS News, Rattner left “to return to private life and spend time with his family.”

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said, “I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future.”

By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York … Uh-oh! But, we’re certain that had nothing to do with his resignation.  And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he’s being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn’t have anything to with his resignation-that’s ridiculous! Like CBS said, this guy just wants to “spend more quality time with his family.”

Obama has 32 personally appointed “czars” who answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority.

But hey, we’re sure they all have “unique skills,”……as Tim Geithner likes to say!

SOOOOO… HOW’S THAT CHANGE WORKING FOR YOU?

This goes beyond corruption in high places – to gross criminal actions on the part of our government!

I hope you will spread this far and wide, and hopefully the taxpaying public will demand some of that transparency we were promised……followed by criminal prosecution of the perpetrators!

What a crooked government we have!!!!!  Vote ’em all out…November 2, 2010 !!

Kagan’s “Kiss of Death”

July 12, 2010

By Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman

Liberty Counsel

The Washington Times called it Elena Kagan’s “kiss of death.”  The more you learn about her successful twisting of expert testimony on abortion and then waffling about it in hearings last week, the more incensed you will become about her nomination to the Supreme Court. Please read my urgent message below.  – Mat.

More than a decade ago, Elena Kagan manipulated expert medical evidence submitted to the Supreme Court. What she did played a key role in the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the ban on the horrendous partial-birth abortion procedure. She did it for political reasons while working for the Clinton administration.

The Washington Times says Kagan “may be more responsible than anyone for keeping partial-birth abortion legal for an extra decade.”  Pause for a moment to think about that.

In part because of Elena Kagan’s political activism, this horrific abortion procedure – which amounts to infanticide and culminates with a near full-term baby’s brains being sucked out so the skull will collapse – continued to be performed across this country.

Elena Kagan’s “handwritten notes” show that she personally re-wrote the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ (ACOG) official assessment of partial-birth abortion to better comport with her political views on abortion.

During her Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Elena Kagan did everything in her power to avoid taking responsibility for manipulating ACOG’s expert testimony, but her defensiveness only spurred closer questioning.

Senator Orrin Hatch asked Kagan a very direct question: “Did you write that memo?” Kagan never actually admitted she wrote the memo but was finally forced to reluctantly acknowledge that, “the document is certainly in my handwriting.”

This hand-written document should be the “kiss of death” for Kagan’s confirmation!

The memo proves that she is a political activist who intentionally corrupted key expert evidence. And it proves that she holds radical pro-abortion political views that make it impossible for her to use the impartiality required of a Supreme Court Justice.

In the final analysis, Elena Kagan’s past actions show that she is a political operative who would use a seat on the Supreme Court to advance a radical political agenda.

++ Unleashing our powerful fax barrage on Monday.

As you know, Liberty Counsel is joining other pro-family groups in calling for a FULL INVESTIGATION of events that took place during Elena Kagan’s tenure in the Clinton White House.

We are also calling for a full review of discrepancies in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, especially concerning her notes to President Clinton giving political advice about abortion cases being considered by the federal judiciary.

We believe this investigation needs to be completed BEFORE the full Senate takes up Kagan’s nomination.  If the pro-Kagan camp doesn’t accept this course of action, a filibuster should be enacted until the investigation is complete and all relevant documents receive proper review!

I am asking every Liberty Counsel team member to press Senators to examine ALL the evidence that may weigh upon Kagan’s qualification for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

And the Senate MUST NOT BE RUSHED by the all-too-familiar Obama/Reid/Pelosi arm twisting.

We have included new language in our faxes calling for an investigation and review of all pertinent documents, including Kagan’s writings.  The fax barrage will begin when the Senate reconvenes this coming Monday.

Please go here to initiate your faxes to your two Senators and other key Senators:

http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=29683&CID=312&RID=25686122

If you prefer, we encourage you to send your own faxes. We have provided all the information you need to reach Senators here:

http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=29684&CID=312&RID=25686122

++Kagan’s radical political activism should disqualify her.

As I wrote to you earlier, Elena Kagan’s activities in the Clinton Administration should not be characterized as merely the actions of an ambitious young attorney whose zeal temporarily overrode her better judgment.

Rather, they appear to be calculated attempts to manipulate testimony by a seasoned lawyer who was at that time serving as counsel to the President of the United States.

If Kagan purposefully manipulated expert findings, then that was at the very least a disrespectful slap at the Court upon which she aspires to serve.  Some have said that her manipulation of expert testimony approaches the crime of evidence tampering – more than sufficient reason to call for Kagan’s removal from consideration.

The evidence clearly shows that Elena Kagan does NOT have the ability to separate her quest to implement a radical personal agenda from the sacred duty of impartially judging as a Supreme Court Justice.

And if Elena Kagan is seated, she would be in position to review the lawsuits against ObamaCare when they make their way to the Supreme Court.  That is totally unacceptable!

++ Stand with us in opposition to Elena Kagan’s confirmation.

Last week, Liberty Counsel supporters generated tens of thousands of citizen contacts to our United States Senators saying…

“FULLY INVESTIGATE ELENA KAGAN AND OPPOSE HER CONFIRMATION”

There is STILL TIME for all of us to make our voices heard by those on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Senators uncommitted in their votes, and your own two Senators.  This is especially true now that Elena Kagan has waffled during testimony about her personal notes to President Clinton on partial-birth abortion.

Your faxes to the Senate will be delivered along with thousands of other citizens’ faxes as part of our massive FAX BARRAGE that resumes on July 12th.

Go here to schedule your targeted faxes:

http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=29685&CID=312&RID=25686122

++ The tide is turning.

Americans are getting wise to the true Elena Kagan. Many Senators have already declared their “no” vote on her nomination.

Kagan’s confirmation is far from being a “done deal,” contrary to what you hear in the mainstream media. We can still stop this dangerous nominee from being seated on the Supreme Court!

Please, increase your personal impact on this vital issue by taking advantage of our FAX BARRAGE and telling your Senators and other key Senators to deny confirmation to Elena Kagan.

Even if you have already sent faxes, you can add to the volume next week by ordering another set.  This battle warrants our very best efforts!

As I mentioned, we have provided sample letters for you – all you have to do is click on the link below to participate in our powerful FAX BARRAGE of the United States Senate. Also click here for a free seven-page White Paper on Elena Kagan’s legal and political philosophy:

P.S.  Elena Kagan has a track record as a radical political operative. The Senate MUST carefully consider ALL the evidence and avoid pressure to rush to a confirmation vote.  We must continue doing everything we can to stand against Elena Kagan’s confirmation!  Go here to access your free White Paper and to schedule your targeted faxes to the Senate:
