Chicago on the Potomac

You and I have just witnessed one of the most corrupt legislative sessions in American history. Now we have learned that one of the key “experts” pushing ObamaCare was also bought and paid for!

The New York Times has exposed Jonathan Gruber, a professor of economics at M.I.T., as having published an article on their Op-Ed page supporting ObamaCare without disclosing that he had an ongoing consulting relationship with HHS.

The Times noted that Professor Gruber had signed a contract obligating him to reveal such relationships. It would have been impossible for him to “forget” his consultancy – he had nearly $400,000 worth of lucrative contracts with HHS at the time!

Firedoglake revealed last Friday that the Obama Administration has paid Gruber more than $780,000 in TAX DOLLARS to make the public case for health care reform!

Jonathan Gruber’s work has been extensively cited by the White House, Members of Congress, and the media continuously since ObamaCare came onto the scene, but NOT ONCE did anyone in the administration disclose he was on their payroll!

The Jonathan Gruber revelation is just the latest public exposure of the graft and dishonesty which has characterized the way the Obama/Pelosi/Reid power axis has advanced ObamaCare. Given what we know, can you imagine what else is under the table?

Just before Christmas, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid systematically bought off every Democrat member of the Senate who could possibly derail his crucial cloture vote. When all the “bribes” were handed out, Reid had the required 60 votes to choke off debate in the middle of the night.

The congressional leadership and the Obama White House arm twisters have literally drug our nation down to the level of a cheap banana republic! They know their popular support is plummeting. They have become desperate and will stop at nothing.

Honest Americans have been nauseated as we have learned:

** Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) received $300 million in extra federal spending for her state in what critics derisively called “The Louisiana Purchase.”

** Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) accepted a deal exempting his state from new Medicaid costs and several other long-term perks. Nelson’s purchase has been dubbed the “Cornhusker Kick Back.”

** Many other bribes and “special provisions” affected the states of Vermont, North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Michigan, Florida, and Connecticut.

But perhaps most painful of all, we have watched a smug Harry Reid justifying his corrupt acts by suggesting it is every senator’s DUTY to get pay-offs for their votes!

“If they don’t have something in it important to them, then it doesn’t speak well of them,” Reid said in a post-cloture interview. So much for the integrity of the United States Senate!

If you wondered why Harry Reid rushed his 2,074-page bill and its 383-page “Manager’s Amendment” through in the middle of the night with just hours to read them, then here’s at least one answer…

On page 1,020, the tyrannical Senate majority insists that no future Congress can repeal or otherwise amend the section on “Independent Medical Advisory Boards.”

You will probably remember that socialists mocked Governor Sarah Palin for calling such independent boards “death panels.” Yet Governor Palin was correct in her assessment – what else would you call boards with the power to grant or deny life-saving care using some pseudo-scientific “cost-benefit” formula?

Carefully hidden away in Reid’s version of ObamaCare is a section that gives these boards far more power and permanence than the Constitution allows to ANY government entity!

Congress has NO authority to force every American to carry insurance coverage,

Congress has NO authority to fine employers whose policies do not have the mandated coverage.

MUST continue to make Congress hear our voice!

Let’s BURY Congress in protest over this endless procession of dirty tricks.

ObamaCare is more vulnerable than ever due to the recent sordid revelations of bribery and scandal.

Americans nationwide are expressing OUTRAGE at this overt manipulation and total lack of integrity. Reid, Pelosi and Obama have proven they will do anything to get this government takeover of our medical industry.

The socialists need to understand that WE HAVE NOT GIVEN UP!

If Reid loses one vote in the Senate or Pelosi three or four in the House, then ObamaCare will not pass!

Secession Movement Moves Beyond Texas

Obama’s Nomination Of Chai Feldblum To The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

Obama has nominated far-left homosexual rights advocate Chai Feldblum to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) – a move that makes Congress’ new push to pass the anti-faith ENDA bill even more dangerous to the rights of Christians.

Consider this…

Not only is Feldblum a former legal counsel for the ACLU and the pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign, she is a CO-AUTHOR of the ENDA bill that she could soon be enforcing!

And what is Feldblum’s agenda?

Incredibly, Feldblum says that when there is a conflict between religious freedom and homosexual rights, “…society should come down on the side of protecting identity liberty of LGBT people” (LGBT stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered).

In this view, YOUR religious beliefs will take second place to someone else’s desire for aberrant sexual activities or gender changes!

She opposed a case in which a Christian couple who owned a bed and breakfast in Vermont and who refused to participate in a same-sex union ceremony in their own home.

Feldblum stated: “Thus, for all my sympathy for the evangelical Christian couple who wish to run a bed and breakfast from which they can exclude unmarried straight couples and all gay couples, this is a point where I believe an inevitable choice between liberties must come into play. In making that choice, I believe society should come down on the side of protecting identity liberty of LGBT people.” Unbelievable!

In Feldblum’s desired workplace, Bob the receptionist can wear a dress and lipstick to work and designate his restroom of choice, yet the owner of the business – even a Christian business owner – will not be able to say a thing about it!

If this latest Obama nominee has her way, even the Boy Scouts would not be able to protect its young members from contact with openly homosexual leaders…

Feldblum is on record as saying that the Boy Scouts should not have won their case at the United States Supreme Court that affirmed their right to free association.

Feldblum and ENDA will put every employee, business owners and even churches and non-profit ministries on the wrong side of the law

The nomination of Chai Feldblum makes the ENDA battle in Congress even more critical. If she is confirmed and ENDA is passed, we should brace ourselves for the most radical, anti-faith interpretation of this bill that is even possible.

Obama’s nomination of Chai Feldblum is no accident. This is all part of a strategic plan to advance a radical, anti-faith, anti-marriage agenda.

Only the Left would even attempt to pass such a radical law and then give the architect of that law enforcement powers!

We have exposed their strategy. Now, we must stand.

Fighting to Secede

From Texas to Hawaii, these groups are fighting to secede.


American secessionist groups today range from small startups with a few laptop computers to organized movements with meetings of delegates from several states.


The Middlebury Institute, a group that studies and supports the general cause of separatism and secessionism in the U.S., has held three Secession Congresses since its founding in 2004.


At the most recent gathering, held in New Hampshire last November, one discussion focused on creating a new federation potentially to be called “Novacadia,” consisting of present-day New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. An article highlighted on the group’s Web site describes Denmark as a role-model for the potential country. In the months following the convention, the idea “did not actually evolve into very much,” says Kirkpatrick Sale, the institute’s director.


Below the Mason-Dixon Line, groups like the League of the South and Southern National Congress hold meetings of delegates. They discuss secession as a way of accomplishing goals like protecting the right to bear arms and tighter immigration policies. The Texas Nationalist Movement claims that over 250,000 Texans have signed a form affirming the organization’s goal of a Texas nation.


A religious group, Christian Exodus, formed in 2003 with the purpose of transforming what is today South Carolina into a sovereign, Christian-run state. According to a statement on its Web site, the group still supports the idea, but has learned that “the chains of our slavery and dependence on Godless government have more of a hold on us than can be broken by simply moving to another state.”


On the West Coast, elected officials representing greater San Diego County, Imperial County and Northern Baja, Mexico, have proposed creating a “mega-region” of the three areas called “Cali Baja, a Bi-National Mega-Region.”

Hawaii is home to numerous groups that work toward the goal of sovereignty, including Nation of Hawaii. The group argues that native Hawaiians were colonized and forced into statehood against their will and without fair process, and therefore have the right to decide how to govern themselves today. In Alaska, the Alaska Independence Party advocates for the state’s independence.


There is also a Web site for a group called North Star Republic, with a mission to establish a socialist republic in what today is Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.


A group of American Indians led by activist Russell Means is working to establish the Republic of Lakotah, which would cover parts of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska. In 2007, the Republic presented the U.S. State Department with a notice of withdrawal.
