Barak Obama – the next Fidel Castro?

I had an opportunity to attend the Burleson TEA Party “Keep America Free” Town Hall Meeting today. Three of the 5 speakers were of Hispanic descent who had come here and become citizens. Two of the speakers, Dr. Irma Aguirre and Professor Juan Baldor, had come over from Cuba in the 1960’s shortly after the Castro ousted Batista.

It was interesting and at the same time a bit terrifying to hear the similarities between the then young, charismatic Castro and the accolades the American press heaps upon Obama. Castro was young, attractive from what I hear, articulate, envisioned “change”, and had gained support from countries other than his own to institute a new Cuba. Any of this sound a bit too close to home? The only difference is the similarities between Castro and Obama are that Castro walked in and took over; Obama was escorted in by his adoring entourage.

Castro immediately nationalized property and bank accounts upon his acceptance of power. He then set rates for wages to equalize (suppress) the flow of income between the people. Removal of weapons then came down the line with rationing of food and medicine (they called in nationalized healthcare). While TARP passed under Bush (something we need not forget), it was Obama who has nationalized our auto industry, banking, and insurance industry.

Dr. Baldor laid out an eery format used to overthrow Cuba that many believe is being used in the US. today. While I did not write down the entire sequence he used, I believe these 2 to be key: 1. Throw God out of everything; 2. Set the head of the state up as God to the people. Obama has done everything he can to denounce America as a Christian nation since taking office and there is no need for examples here. Obama has also set himself up to be more than the President of the US – he wants to be King of the World. There is no doubt that he is enamored with himself and his list of pseudo accomplishments. Instead of teaching children about our states and nation, Obama is trying to have kids sing him a song of praise. Any of you in the blogosphere taking notes?

Castro also saluted Obama for passing the Obamacare in spite of the majority of the American people being against it………

Obama is a manchild of the most dangerous nature and deserves to be placed near or alongside the destructive capacity of Castro. My concern is that if this joker is not ousted in 2012, will we be comparing him with Hitler in 50 years?

PA-12: Close but not close enough

There were two elections going on in the Congressional District of PA-12 last night: the Democrat and Republican primaries as well as the Special Election to fill the vacancy created by the death of US Rep John Murtha. Tim Burns has been campaigning for this seat since last summer when he & I met at NRCC School in Washington DC. This was before my debacle with XTO and I was campaigning on CD-17. Tim and I became good friends and have kept up with each others races. We were both in what many called “unwinnable races”. There was a key difference – Tim was the lone man taking on Murtha. While there was a glimmer of hope in beating Edwards, and I believe Flores will take Chet out this fall, Murtha was considered untouchable and Tim was almost labeled a kook for entering the race. Tim, like you & I, knows the country is headed the wrong way and wants to make a difference for his family and country. Tim is a patriot for just entering a race like this.

For the longest time in that race, Tim was not even mentioned amongst the hopeful Congressional seats the GOP felt they could take in 2010. Murtha had effectively bought out the conservative Dem district – the John Murtha Airport we all kicked in to pay for was part of the graft going on.  There were rumblings in the district of uneasiness when Murtha called his district residents “rednecks and racists” in 2009. PA-12 likes God & Guns, believes in the right to life, and are not too wild about taxes. I think they are Republican but just cannot say it yet.

When Murtha died last year, the whole perspective on taking the seat changed. Tim had been out hitting the bricks hard and suddenly the thought of this seat changing hands to the Republican’s was not far fetched. The Dems pulled long time Murtha staffer Mark Critz into the race as a symbol of Murtha past and present. There was only one problem – Critz was running from the National Democratic Party platform faster than a gold medalist in the 440 relay. Why, he would have voted against Obamacare and Cap & Trade! He believes in the 2nd amendment and lower taxes!  What a crock.

One of the unwritten issues facing the passage of any type of term limits is how to ensure the DC staffers don’t end up with more power than they currently have. Want to know why the Congress never read any bills? They have their staff do it and tell them what to do. All you have to do is look at Murtha’s liberal record and you know EXACTLY how Critz will vote. This person tells PA-12 one thing then flies down to DC to be a part of fundraisers held by Nancy Pelosi. Critz is every bit as two faced as our own CD-17 Pelosi lap dog Chet Edwards.

Critz took the Special Election by 8 points or roughly 10000 votes last night. It was not as close as the polls had indicated, but close enough to instill hope for the fall. Tim Burns won the Republican Primary last night so gets another crack at Critz in November. Hopefully, he can tie Crtiz to Murtha and hang the Dem platform around his neck in November. If he can expose Critz, he will take this seat.

Tim Burns is on Facebook and Twitter. His website is www.timburnsforcongress.com Let him know you are in his corner. It makes a difference.

The drum beat for Cap & Trade

This is a re-print of an article that appeared on May 10 from Green Builder Magazine. An entire industry is being built around the anticipation of Cap & Trade. Are you ready for the impact? If not, you had better start calling, faxing, and writing Senators in DC to slow down this freight train.

The Last Barrel of Oil by Sara Gutlerman

It is predicted that the social, environmental, and financial devastation resulting from BP’s runaway oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico could make Hurricane Katrina look like a light afternoon rain shower. With more than 200,000 gallons of oil gushing into the water every day, the inhabitants of already damaged wetlands and vulnerable wildlife sanctuaries are staggering from the geyser of destruction. The crude oil, along with chemicals used to disperse it, is creating a toxic soup, fatal to marine life. And people in the fishing and tourism industries along the Gulf Coast fear irreparable damage to their very way of life as they face an estimated $5.5 billion in costs and lost revenues.

This disaster is especially ironic in light of the Administration’s announcement last month to open new offshore drilling sites in US waters. The spill been likened to subprime mortgages—a peculiar wake-up call, which should transcend political parties and special interests. In the face of such calamity, politicians and business executives have an ideal opportunity to actually exhibit desperately needed leadership and implement real change that galvanizes, rather than divides, the public.

The immediate response to this latest disaster must involve bioremediation of habitat and restoration of economic opportunity for local communities. A logical second step is the development and relentless implementation of a progressive energy policy that realistically addresses today’s (and tomorrow’s) needs, including strict guidelines for energy efficiency, renewables, clean technology, and financially responsible national energy independence.

Why does it seem so hard to for Washington to pave the way to a clean energy future? Why must we drill, baby drill when we have endless rooftops that we can cover with solar panels, acres of land that we use to construct wind generators, and miles of earth in which we can employ geothermal systems?

I’m cautiously optimistic that we may be moving in the right direction, as evidenced last week by the House passing a version of the Home Star Energy Retrofit Act of 2010 (H.R. 5019), which authorizes the creation of a national energy retrofit program for American homeowners.

As the crude continues to gush from the ocean floor, the Administration is taking pause to analyze its next move, and has at least temporarily suspended approval of new offshore drilling permits until more is known about the extent of damage from the Gulf Coast oil spill.

While it is essential that we implement a national energy policy that retains US dollars within our country, it is also essential that we ask the right questions that lead to appropriate solutions.

Need I even ask? How many animals should we allow to die, how much toxic crud should we tolerate washing up on our beaches, how many chemicals should we allow to pollute our ocean before we speak out? How many dollars should we spend on remediation on this disaster that could have been used on research and development of clean energy technologies and delivery systems? Do we have to run out of oil before we take action, or can we end our destructive obsession before we are forced to endure more needless environmental damage and financial distress?

It’s time to turn our angst into action, to replace our political paralysis with execution, to make dependency on fossil fuels the next victim of enlightened policy.

The BP Oil Rig Explosion – accident or a domestic act of terrorism?

One of the key elements in bringing new products to market is to create the demand. The applies to the political process as well. If you want a new bill passed and your lackeys in Congress lack the brass tacks to make it happen, create the element that sparks a fire.

Cap & Trade (Cap & Tax) passed the House last year and has been gathering dust on the desks of the Senate. Our illustrious leader (gag me!) Barry O is feeling pretty full of himself right about now. Forget the polls – the manchild has much to do before the garbage is taken out in November and he just pulled off the greatest resurrection since Lazarus in the passage of Obamacare. So why stop there? Those pesky conservatives have not a clue what is good for them. Don’t we realize global warming is real and we must get away from fossil fuels, etc, etc?

Don’t get me wrong – I am literally a green capitalist. I like the environment and I enjoy providing for my family as well as I can. When the two can come together its a win -win. However, I am not for forcing renewables down peoples throats and taxing the tinkle out of them to walk down the renewable path. Get products that work and ones business can make a profit on and let the market handle things. Then I remember the bozo that sits on the throne at 1600…..

Which brings me back to the BP oil rig – this is a company that has had one of the best environmental records amongst energy producers that pay off inspectors. I realize that statement can be an oxymoron, but BP has been pretty good at not being nabbed. Now an explosion occurs that no one can give a real solid explanation for. What I have been told by friends I have in military intel is that a mini-sub was spotted on radar close to the rig right before the explosion. Thoughts are it was torpedoed. Do a search on the web and you’ll find a plethora of theories around this.

 Now, just a blink after Obamacare is passed we have one of the worst oil disasters on record and the environmental groups are going ape. How could they have approved the drilling??!! What were we thinking??!! Oh, and for those of you sleeping in a cave – John Kerry (son of Lurch) and Joe Liebermann (Elmer Fudd’s love child?) have introduced a kindler, gentler form of Cap & Trade. Lots of support they say! Why, everyone can agree we need this bill now to save our future! Here is the youtube post if you can stomach it : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ9unHhwkOQ&playnext_from=TL&videos=2KH24_jozgA 

Now I know you are thinking – our government would never stoop to such tactics. For the most part I agree with you, but then the current regime is not like any we have ever had before. They know the time is ticking and power will be taken from them this fall. New legislation the likes of Obamacare and Cap & Trade are far more difficult to repeal than most care to admit. The libs know now is their window of opportunity that may never come again and they will fall on the sword for their cause. If you have failed to understand the resolve behind the libs, take a deep breath and wake up to reality.

Somewhere Barry O is smiling.

Time to move on to making a difference

The Senate District 22 race is over for me now. While it certainly did not end the way I or most the district expected, crying over spilt milk is not my nature.  Helping people can be achieved in many fashions. I am fortunate enough currently to be working in two areas near and dear to all poeple in Texas and throughtout the US. As lead c0onsultant for the We the People Health project (www.wethepeoplehealth.com ) I am working on bringing a large, non homogenous group health project that can become everything Obamacare is against – free market solutions. I have also accepted a position with Unified Energies, Inc (www.unifiedenergies.com ) as their point person for Government Relations and Project Development. This is a duty I have accepted in addition to operating our consulting firm. Unified Energies, Inc hold proprietry technologies in wind, solar, and bio fuels unlike anything in the marketplace. I have been working as a consultant to help bring funding to their research for quite some time now. The company is launching several new global renewable projects that will stand renewable technologies on their collective ears. These technologies are not only renewable, but make economic sense from an investment standpoint. I am proud to be a part of this development and process.

This blog site will report what I am doing in these sectors, give my opinions of the politics and patriots of the day, and hopefully help bring additional exposure to those that want to make a difference in our state and country at all levels of government.
