Harry Reid’s latest assault on America: The land theft act

This means additional wilderness, wild and scenic rivers and trails designations, the expansion of EPA authority to control ocean beaches through regulations that will adversely affect all farms and ranches, and multiple land transfers, among other significant negative implications for America.

As feared by everyone, the U.S. Senate and Harry Reid are bringing those the CLEAR Act, fears to fruition and are set to destroy America’s future by taking all the private property they can with one bill, unless we act this week! It used to be called the CLEAR (Consolidated Land, Energy, and Aquatic Resources) Act of 2010, but Mr. Reid pulled a legislative trick and substituted the CLEAR Act for a completely unrelated, bill S. 303, and now calls it the “America’s Great Outdoors Bill of 2010.” More

The FDA and USDA have routinely used the Federal Register to “update” the food safety system, always granting themselves far reaching authority and empowering themselves far beyond the intent of the original legislation that created these blights on America.”

And the Republicans joined right in!

I can only imgaine that the halls of the Senate were virtually awash in  “funding” from lobbyists as Republicans joined Democrats in the greatest assault on agriculture ever launched by our own government.

It seems there is no stopping the nefarious Harry Reid (D) NV.  With the country screaming no to the ill conceived S.510 Fake Food safety bill, Reid was successful in attaching the agricultural police state bill to a non-related bill and rammed this piece of garbage through the senate once again. 

And where were those Republicans who got the message from voters that things needed to change?  Well…they were right in there voting yes along with the Democrats.  Even Senator Tom Coburn (R) OK., jumped on the band wagon and voted to pass this attack on food production and supply into law.  Its just amazing what bags of corporate lobbying money  can do to politicians. 

S.510 Fake Food Safety bill was passed quickly late Sunday afternoon; a vote taken when the Senate could be assured few were watching or even aware that the vote on the criminalization of independent and family agriculture was taking place.  Like rats scurrying across the deck of a sinking ship, senators lined up one by one to vote against the best interest of their districts and in favor of the industrialization of agriculture. And like rats, they hurriedly scurried away before their presence was detected.  Rats are like that.  More

The argument is being put forward that it is not fair to exempt small farmers and ranchers from the corporate machine that would wipe them out.  I find it strange to hear the word “fair” applied to this obviously staged conversation.”  More

Growing an Already Disjointed and Duplicative Federal Government 

In 2008, GAO testified before a House subcommittee that “FDA is one of 15 agencies that collectively administer at least 30 laws related to food safety. This fragmentation is the key reason GAO added the federal oversight of food safety to its High-Risk Series in January 2007 and called for a government wide reexamination of the food safety system. We have reported on problems with this system—including inconsistent oversight, ineffective coordination, and inefficient use of resources.”

Specifically, GAO found that in 2003, FDA and USDA activities included overlapping and duplicative inspections of 1,451 domestic food-processing facilities that produce foods regulated by both agencies. This GAO testimony came on the heels of a 2005 GAO report that identified significant overlap in food safety activities conducted by USDA and the FDA, and to some extent the EPA and National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), including “71 interagency agreements [to coordinate overlapping activities] that the agencies entered into… However, the agencies have weak mechanisms for tracking these agreements that…lead to ineffective implementation.” 

This overlap was evident in the egg salmonella scare. The Wall Street Journal reported (USDA Graders Saw Bugs and Trash at Egg Producer; Didn’t Tell FDA) that U.S. Department of Agriculture experts knew about sanitary problems at one of the two Iowa farms at the center of a massive nationwide egg recall, but did not notify health authorities.) USDA inspects farms and gives eggs their “Grade A” label, while the FDA technically is tasked with the safety of the final egg product.

This discrepancy was the impetus behind an egg safety rule originally promulgated 10 years ago by the FDA. Unfortunately, three administrations sat on the proposed rule without finalizing and implementing it. FDA Commissioner Dr. Hamburg stated, “We believe that had these rules been in place at an earlier time, it would have very likely enabled us to identify the problems on this farm before this kind of outbreak occurred.” A lack of regulatory bill isn’t the problem.

Are Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Joe Lieberman all as insane as they look and sound? 

In case you have not yet been alerted, the above gang of pretended public servants are either truly insane, or they are working for some source other than that from which they draw their constitutional power. 

But then again, the lawmakers in congress who heed Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence – that our government should rule “with the consent of the governed” – are so few as to nullify the good and wise intentions of our founding fathers. May God help us 

It is the democratic leadership (of Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Lieberman, Frank, and many others) that remains steadfast in its support of the draconian healthcare deformity, known as Obamacare, while recent polls show only 34 percent of those polled still supported the Healthcare “Reform” Act.

Requiring Americans and small businessmen to bear the cost of buying into the expensive, corporate health “care” plans of the Monetary Cartel’s mega-insurance giants, and into the ever-sliding quality of American medicine, all under the pain of huge fines and prison time, does not sit well with most informed Americans and could be the death knell for the American small business sector, and our middle class as well.  More

This has to be one of the best video’s done on the current state of corruption in our government.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We elected you on a promise of hope and change. We regret it. In 2010, we are taking our country back. Blue collar democrats, independents, and conservatives. We love our country. We are proud of our founders. And we will fight for our traditions. We don’t want your revolution.

Pelosi & Reid Need to Step Down

Leave a comment

I don’t know which of these two I have come to despise more; Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi.  For me, these two are no different than any other neo-con and I have no use for any one of them and none for what now masquerades as the Democrat faction of our government. 

 

Senate Leader Harry Reid is preparing to schedule a couple of weeks of immigration reform hearings, again trying to establish amnesty for illegal immigrants.  The hook on this new intended reform is border reinforcement (bull!) and implementing tight employee verification requirements for employers unless of course they are big corporations that finance both the Democrats and Republicans…..meaning there will be no tightening and no border reinforcement.    

 

Maybe Senator Reid didn’t get the message last year when American’s rebelled en-mass against several attempts to pass amnesty to people that broke our laws, and who drained the federal treasury (our tax dollars at work) of more than $240 billion as several states faced massive deficits from the overload on social benefits including education and healthcare.  This while these same people sent $45 billion back to Mexico alone in “remittances”. 

 

Speaker Pelosi it is claimed is coming out with her version of the new amnesty plan early this summer.  Apparently Pelosi and Reid both have a hearing or comprehension problem, if not both.   It is obvious neither understands that the majority of legal American citizens will not support amnesty in any form regardless of how they package it.  No doubt, amnesty will be attached to some non-related emergency bill and rammed down our throats. 

 

Reid and Pelosi need to go.  Along with them the Attorney General, one in a long line of AG’s that has refused to perform his duty as require in the US Code.


Title 8 U.S.C. 1103 (a)(5) states: “The Attorney General shall have the power and the duty to control and guard the boundaries and borders of States against the illegal entry of aliens.”

 

This one section alone should be enough to have Mukasey removed from office for dereliction of duty.  And by the way…..where’s that fence?  If not the fence, at least call the Canadian Military down here to patrol that border for us.  After all, Reid and Pelosi along with everyone else in our representative congress never said a word about this anti-American agreement called the Civil Assistance Plan that allows foreign military’s to be used on our soil….. against us.  The least they could do is have them secure that border and stop the flow of mass illegal immigration before they turn them on us.

 

Contrary to what we hear daily, our immigration system is NOT broken……it simply isn’t enforced.  We have a very liberal immigration policy, admitting an estimated 2 million new immigrants each year.  This in addition to all the work, education and shopping visas.  Yes, Virginia!  You can get a shopping visa to enter the US from Mexico.  Go figure! And here I thought these people were so poor!  How could they come here to shop if they are? With what? 

 

I also find it hard to believe that these illegal entrants into our country cannot make a decent living in Mexico, where wages are less, but so is the cost of living.  Yet they can somehow raise $1500 (American) or more per person to get smuggled into the country.  Where did that money come from if they are so destitute? 

 

I also realize that it sounds much nicer to call these people “undocumented workers” rather than illegal immigrants.  They are illegal immigrants who are working illegally in this country; employed by unscrupulous employers and sanctioned by our own government that in turn refuses to enforce our laws.  And leading this assault against the will of the American public is Pelosi and Reid who insist on trying yet again to push another amnesty bill through while more jobs are lost here, while 2 million will lose their homes to foreclosure, and many become homeless as a result. 

 

The Pew Hispanic Center estimated in 2006 that there were about 20 million illegal immigrants in this country, and, that of those 20 million, 7 million were employed and only 12% of that 7 million were working in agriculture.   The immediate question arises:  How were the other 13 million surviving? 

 

I find it either amazing or equally appalling that this congress like those before it can seem to do nothing that isn’t harmful to American’s at large.  Laws are passed regularly that strip us of our rights, put us under unnecessary surveillance and invade every aspect of our lives.  Our Constitution has been totally trashed while we are threatened daily with “terrorists” and too many of us now live in fear of our own militarized government. 

 

Based on all the laws that have infringed on our rights, all the laws that are now in progress to be passed, it would appear that you and I no longer have the right to dissent, to be left alone by the government, to attend rally’s, to try and affect any social, religious or political change (now called acts of domestic terrorism) or to be represented in our government.  We could be jailed, held indefinitely without charges, never charged, unable to mount a defense, unable to know what we are charged with and can even be stripped of our citizenship.  All of this on being deemed a “domestic terrorist” by virtue of having exercised your constitutional rights.

 

But!  If you jump the border, enter the country illegally, steal someone else’s identity, social security number or even credit card numbers…….work illegally, illegally access social benefits, and demand to be taken care of and claim you have some kind of rights to all of this….we’ll give you amnesty!  We won’t even charge you for breaking our laws!  For some reason you won’t be deemed a domestic terrorist and you most likely will never see the inside of a jail much less any charges against you.  Heck! Even if we catch you we’ll just tell you to show up at a later date in court (which you won’t) and then forget all about you.  It would seem that being an illegal immigrant into this country will allow you far more latitude and legal rights than being a legal citizen.

 

In the end, if Pelosi and Reid think the majority of us out here are going to sit still for yet another attempt at passing the same old amnesty BS, they need to think again.  We are more determined than ever to see that it doesn’t.
