Unbelievable, Kerry & Lieberman introduce Cap & Trade today

Unbelievable, Kerry & Lieberman introduce Cap & Trade today
By Kyle Prast
May 12, 2010 3:00 p.m.

File this bill under Bad Bills & Ideas That Just Won't Die. (There are so many, one cannot get to them all.) Today, Senator Kerry and Lieberman are introducing Cap and Trade to the U.S. Senate. You know, the bill that all pronounced dead earlier this year--the one that didn't have a chance of passage this year. But you see, the issue is NOT capping carbon emissions to save the planet from Global Warming, the issue is taxing you more and controlling your life.

"The Senate bill would set up an emission trading program for utilities starting in 2013. Factories and other “industrial sources” would join the cap-and-trade program in 2016."

The bill proposes cutting greenhouse gases by 17% below their 2005 levels in 10 years. Never mind that CO2 has since been shown to have no affect on warming and that the planet has not been warming in the past 10 years.

Never mind that those involved in the Carbon Exchange, like U.W. Madison Prof. Joel Rogers admit that "it is all about the money and if we stopped ALL emissions in the U.S., it would make absolutely no difference". (My Emphasis throughout post)

It is estimated that this legislation will cost the average U.S. homeowner an extra $600 - $1,000/year on their utility bills. Wisconsin will be hit harder because so much of our electricity comes from coal fired plants.

This type of Cap and Trade legislation has already proven itself to be useless in controlling CO2 emissions and detrimental to the economies of Europe. You know, Europe, that is having their own economic woes?

Chris Horner from National Review sums this bill up as an opportunity to transfer wealth. He also points to the devastating effect of carbon taxing on Europe's economy: "I have a take on the lesson for us from Europe amid this debate over at Energy Tribune, written over the weekend but consistent with an emerging meme: we are willfully rushing headlong into the same debt, through the very same mandates, that has broken Europe. The system doesn’t work. And our political class doesn’t care. They’ve got a fundamental transformation to impose — as I describe in Power Grab. It’s not too late to learn their plan and their tricks."

In another piece from Energy Tribune, Today's Greece, Tomorrow's America: How Obama's Health Care and Energy Agendas Really End: "The most troubling aspect of the West’s current policy turmoil is not the European meltdown led by Greece and Spain. It is instead President Barack Obama’s unflinching insistence on rushing America headlong into the very mandates, and resulting debt levels, that precipitated that meltdown."

"Obama is scripting a repeat of Europe’s disaster, here, by cramming down on the American people the same policy fetishes our Left has obsessed about for decades, and which Europe used to bring this down upon itself: statist management of health care and energy."

Our U.S. economy is hanging on by a thread. The CBO just came out with the report that ObamaCare could cost twice as much as originally thought: CBO Doubles Some Health Care Spending Estimates. Now our Senate is poised on adding another economy/job killer bill?

The House version knew Cap and Trade would adversely affect our economy. It even "included two years of unemployment assistance for workers who lose their jobs as a result of this 'jobs bill.' "

Can Obama Pick A Winner?

Obama picks a winner

Solicitor General and President Barack Obama's latest nominee is Elena Kagan, class of 1981. At the Ivy League school, she was a student newspaper editor. Her senior thesis was on socialist politics in New York City. (

Obama has had his share of picks since he was sworn in and many of those have been extremely questionable. If you have paid attention to politics over the past several years, then you should know who they are.

His first supreme court pick was Sonya Sotomayor who said she could do the job better than any gray haired white man, but of course that wasn't construed as racist.

Now, he is picking someone who appears to in favor of socialist politics and is opposed to the 'don't ask don't tell' policy of the US armed forces claiming it is a "Moral injustice."

CBS News reported that she would be the first openly gay supreme court justice if she is nominated. The Obama administration has refuted that story, so who knows and who cares. She already has a bias towards those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle as Sotomayor has made remarks against those who are Caucasians.

The simple fact that Elena Kagan has not one minute of experience as a judge should be enough to disqualify her for the bench of the highest court of the Land. Years of experience and insight are needed to rule on cases that go before the Supreme Court and like most Americans I simply don't believe she qualifies.

Obama is great at picking people, but he seems much more qualified at picking his nose.

Has Freedom Died in America?

Quotes of the Day:

"And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise" -- Jesus of Nazareth, Luke 6:31 (KJV)

"Liberty is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others." -- William Allen White


Once upon a time, in a country known as the land of the free and the home of the brave, these words were rarely heard:

"May I see your papers please?"

But, increasingly, the free and the brave became dependent and cowardly. They begged to wear chains.

Many fought the trend, but even they were undone, because some in their ranks harbored fears greater than their love of freedom.

Remember where you heard this . . .

If American freedom dies, the widespread desire to control immigration will have been a major factor.

And remember where you heard this . . .

If the fight to defeat the creation of a national ID card FAILS, it will be because of the widespread desire to control immigration. Let us not forget, we have drawn the line on Real ID. Five years have gone by, and we've stalled implementation. But now, other Real ID Jr. proposals are building a head of steam.

So remember where you heard this . . .

Americans will have to carry internal passports, and show them to State officials constantly, and have every aspect of their lives controlled by far off know-it-alls in the federal bureaucracy. Your federal overlords will gain increased control over . . .

* Where, how, and even if you can earn a living
* Whether or not you can board a train, or enter a federal building
* Whether or not you can cash a check, or buy guns or alcohol
* What kind of healthcare you receive
* How long you'll stand in line at the DMV, and whether you can have a license
* Whether or not you can be stopped on our streets, and even detained, for failure to display your card
* And many other aspects of your life

This total control will be made possible by a national identification system that was put in place in order to control immigration. But it will really control YOU!

In this way, immigration control and registration is just like gun control and registration -- it most deeply affects law-abiding citizens.

Remember where you heard this . . .

The immigration debate is NOT about what Mexicans will be allowed to do, IT'S about what YOU will be allowed to do. It's about YOUR freedom . . .

* First the politicians wanted to curtail your freedom to protect you from terrorists
* Now they want to curtail your freedom to protect you from Mexicans

Remember where you heard this . . .

The immigration debate is a scam. It's fear-mongering, foisted by busy-bodies of all varieties. The result will be Bigger Government in Washington, DC. It will control YOU. And now, it's up to YOU to decide . . .

Are you afraid of terrorists and Mexicans? ...or whatever hobgoblin the Big Government Fearmongers will conjure next?

Will you be free and brave, or dependent and cowardly? Will you trade YOUR FREEDOM for a false promise of protection?

This is how we see the issue. And if you end up in chains, remember who warned you. We did.

Meanwhile, for the brave who want to remain free, let the spirit of resistance continue . . .

Please send a letter to Congress opposing all national identification schemes, including the new attempt by Senators Schumer and Graham, to MAKE ALL OF US CARRY Social Security cards with biometric identifiers.

In addition to this campaign's hardwired letter to Congress, which reads as follows -- "Please don't try to fix the REAL ID Act. Please, just repeal it." -- we suggest you add the following in your personal comments . . .

"Please oppose any legislation that contains any support for any kind of national identification system. I specifically oppose plans for a Social Security card containing biometric identifiers. I do not want ANY national identification scheme, and I reject your claim that I need such a system in order to be protected from terrorists and Mexican immigrants. I am not afraid! And I want you to stop being afraid on my behalf."

You can send your letter to Congress here:

Our thanks go to those who prefer bravery and freedom.

Words to Our Legislators - NO More Excuses

We the people of this great nation are tired of excuses. We are constantly hearing lackluster reasons why we need legislation that we do not want. We constantly here them try to justify taking away our liberties, but Americans are tired of excuses.

Most Americans want to see action taken, they want legislators who will stand against legislation that is unconstitutional. They want legislators who will be the lone wolf if necessary and be the voice of reason during heated debate.

The time for excuses is done, the time for results is now. Americans are already rallying behind those who are running against incumbents. Americans will show their disdain for the lack of representation in the mid term elections as well as the presidential elections.

Americans will start voting in favor of more third party candidates and true conservatives who will not vote according to the will of their party but vote for the will of the people and in accordance to the Constitution.

The United States will see an immense change over the next few years. Let us all use due diligence and learn as much about each candidate as possible before we support any of them.

URGENT: Audit the Fed Amendment Vote TOMORROW

URGENT: Audit the Fed Amendment Vote TOMORROW
Posted by James Leroy Wilson

As you know, the "financial regulation" bills offered up by the House and Senate will do considerable harm.

But the House version has one thing going for it: the bill they passed includes Ron Paul's proposal to Audit the Federal Reserve.

The Senate hasn't passed their bill yet. But Banking Chairman Chris Dodd stripped the House's Audit the Fed provision from the Senate version.

A trans-partisan coalition of Senators, including the Independent Bernie Sanders, Democrat Russ Feingold, and Republican Jim DeMint, are proposing an amendment to Audit the Fed in the senate bill.

This amendment could be voted on Tuesday, May 4. Tomorrow. has joined a coalition of organizations in signing a letter that opposes the overall bill, but which supports this amendment. Here is the letter . . .

Dear Senator,

Although we oppose S. 3217, the financial regulatory reform legislation currently being considered on the Senate floor, we urge you to vote for Sens. Sanders, Feingold, DeMint, and Vitter's Federal Reserve Transparency Amendment.

This amendment is similar to S.604, the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act, which was offered as an amendment to last year's Budget Resolution. S. 604 has 33 bipartisan cosponsors. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act (H.R. 1207), the House companion bill, has 320 bipartisan cosponsors. A slightly modified version of H.R. 1207 passed the House Financial Services Committee by a vote of 43-28 and was incorporated into the financial reform bill passed by the House.

This amendment does not take away the "independence" of the Fed. It simply requires the GAO to conduct an independent audit of the Fed and requires the Fed to release the names of the recipients of more than $2 trillion in taxpayer-backed assistance during this latest economic crisis.

S. 3217 unacceptably increases the Fed's powers at a time when the American people are demanding answers as to what the Federal Reserve has been doing with the powers it currently possesses. It also strips out the strong audit language contained in the House's reform bill in favor of a watered-down approach that allows the Fed to continue operating in secret. Any true financial reform effort will start with requiring accountability from our nation's central bank.

Therefore, we urge you to work for a standalone vote on S. 604 and, if S. 3217 is brought up for a vote, strongly encourage you to support increased transparency at the Federal Reserve by voting in favor of the Fed Transparency Amendment.


Americans for Tax Reform
Center for Fiscal Accountability
Campaign for Liberty
The Rutherford Institute, Inc.
The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste
U.S. Bill of Rights Foundation
Eagle Forum

We urge you to also send a letter telling the Senate to support the Sanders/Feingold/DeMint/Vitter amendment for Fed Transparency using's Educate the Powerful System.

Time is of the essence. Forward this to your contacts. And by the time you receive this Dispatch . . .

* It will have been posted on our Facebook fan page for you to share:

* And also on our Twitter page for you to retweet:

Thanks for taking action!

Sneaky Underhanded Power Grab Underway in Washington

-- Democrats looking to get almost ten, brand new anti-gunners in Congress

Friday, April 30, 2010

The Democrat-controlled Congress and the White House are pulling out all the stops to offset the oncoming tidal wave that is threatening to throw them out of power this November.

With their polls sagging badly, the liberal Democrats rammed through a Puerto Rican statehood resolution yesterday which many consider the first step towards making Puerto Rico the 51st state -- a move that would give liberal progressives in the Congress six more Representatives and two new Senators.

Making Puerto Rico a state would bring another gun control bastion into our nation and bring almost ten anti-gun congressmen and senators into the Congress.

This is disgraceful! With her party's polls plummeting, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to get as many additional progressives into Congress as possible so that she can continue advancing her liberal, anti-American agenda.

Regarding the statehood resolution, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) says it "is the Puerto Rico statehood bill which is being pushed by the new progressive party in Puerto Rico trying to create a federally [sanctioned] vote that they say is nonbinding but would give them the legitimacy to then come back and try to seat people in the United States Congress."

To see how your congressman voted on the Puerto Rican statehood resolution, go to:

GOA will keep you updated as to when a vote is scheduled in the U.S. Senate.

GOA helps kill Pelosi's attempt to give DC a vote in Congress

Not to be satisfied with merely eight new liberal votes from Puerto Rico, liberal Democrats want to give statehood to Washington, DC. S. 160 would take a major step in that direction by giving this federal enclave a vote in the House of Representatives.

The bill is the DC Voting Rights Act, otherwise known as the DC Vote Grab Act. It would make Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton a legitimate voting member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

If you know anything about Del. Norton, you know that she is one of the most liberal, anti-gun legislators in the country -- one who completely supports Nancy Pelosi's agenda. Of course, Democrats are not just going to settle for a mere Representative in Congress... they want statehood for the District of Columbia in order to get two anti-gun Senators, as well.

It seems that the Obama-Reid-Pelosi strategy is to continue screwing the country -- even if it hurts them in the polls -- because then they will work to get as many "new" votes as possible through Puerto Rican statehood... DC statehood... and even things like amnesty for illegal aliens.

But if Pelosi were to succeed in making DC a state, there will be two more liberal votes in the Senate -- a situation that would allow them to break any Republican filibuster that would stymie their anti-gun agenda.

The Senate passed S. 160 last year, and if it were not for Gun Owners of America and Senator John Ensign, it would have been signed into law last spring.

Pro-gun Senator John Ensign and Gun Owners of America worked together to attach an amendment to the DC Vote Grab Act

. The amendment would repeal all the restrictive gun control laws still on the books in DC after the landmark D.C. v. Heller Supreme Court decision. The vote margin was an amazing 62-36 in the Senate!

Wiping out DC's still very restrictive anti-gun laws was not what Speaker Pelosi and other rabid anti-Second Amendment members of the House wanted to see.

Because of this GOA-supported amendment, the House has been unable to take any action on the Senate measure. While Speaker Pelosi has no desire to see a pro-gun provision within the DC bill, many House members are afraid to vote for any such bill that doesn't contain the pro-gun Ensign amendment. In short, this has been a real Mexican standoff that has lasted for nearly a year.

In fact, when Pelosi tried to bring up the bill last week, she could not muster enough votes to secure passage. S. 160 might now be dead for the year, but GOA will continue watching this and alert you to any attempts to bring up the bill again.

Senate "disses" America's veterans

For several years, GOA has been alerting gun owners to the travesty of justice that has been perpetrated on our veterans.

After the Brady law went into effect, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) began sending the names of many of its beneficiaries to the FBI so they could be added to the NICS list, denying these individuals their right to purchase a firearm. To date, more than 150,000 military veterans have been denied.

However, none of these veterans were ever convicted of a crime; none were found to be a danger to anyone; and none were afforded any meaningful due process of law. Under the semblance of being "mental defectives," these veterans were added to the list strictly because a doctor or a bureaucrat in the VA appointed someone to manage their finances.

The al-Qaeda terrorists in Guantanamo have been given more due process than the American soldiers who fought them!

To combat this outrage, pro-gun Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) authored S. 669, the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, that will safeguard for veterans two of the most fundamental Constitutional rights enjoyed by Americans: due process of law and the right to keep and bear arms.

The Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act merely stipulates that a veteran cannot lose his or her gun rights "without the order or finding of a judge, magistrate, or other judicial authority of competent jurisdiction that such person is a danger to himself or herself or others."

This very reasonable bill passed out of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee last June, having been approved unanimously.

Burr's language was offered on the floor of the Senate during the health care debate, but unfortunately, it was defeated 53-45. To see how your Senator voted, go to:

GOA will continue fighting for the passage of this very important legislation.

Where we are at

As you know, elections have consequences. GOA is fighting in the trenches to protect/regain our rights. And, thankfully, we have won a couple of major battles at the federal level -- like securing the ability to transport firearms on Amtrak trains and carry loaded guns in National Parks.

In the states, GOA has been successfully pushing Firearms Freedom Acts around the country -- laws which allow guns that are made in their home states, and stay in those states, to be free of federal regulation. (Currently, there are seven states that have enacted such laws; several others are still in the process.)

GOA also worked in Arizona to pass a new Alaska-style carry law which allows citizens to carry concealed firearms without first getting permission from the government.

Larry Pratt recently appeared on MSNBC's Hardball, hosted by Chris Matthews. The interview was, well, interesting to say the least. Just click on the top video at

We have also lost some battles, as would be expected in a climate that is overwhelmingly controlled by liberals in Washington.

So we need your help. We can win the battles that are facing us, but only if we each give our maximum effort. Thank you for your continued support for our work. Even if you can only a give a couple of dollars, every little bit counts.

Obama Number One in Wind Power

That smell in Mo wasn't the output from the biodiesel plant that Obama visited today. No it was the foul stench of rhetoric by an administration that has proved themselves to be full of wind power.

After the Health Care control Bill, Obama has begun his journey of converting this nation into socialism. Next on his agenda?

Well, the regulation of the financial sector that caused the housing bubble. Never mind the fact that it was the regulations that forced banks to allow those who could not afford to purchase a home to get a home mortgage.

Other issues on his agenda, Immigration Reform. Now, I dont agree with Arizona's decision to become a "Show me you Papers" state, but I dont live there, and I most certainly do not have to go visit there any time soon. However, it is their right as a state to do as they will and up to the legal citizens of that state to deal with their legislators.

There will be no immigration reform. They will call it whatever they want, but we know it will be nothing more than AMNESTY. Hey, why not give amnesty to all lawbreakers who are just trying to make better lives for themselves?

Obama's other agenda's, too many to go over them all, but Cap & Trade, also known as Cap & Tax, Cap & Slave or energy regulations.

Genius idea, put the whole nation on a smart grid that has no viable protection against hackers. Some schoolboy in Asia or Russia will be able to shut the nation down while playing online games.

Now, if Obama wanted to do something besides smile and let out a lot of hot meaningless air, perhaps, he could get congress to lift the ban on growing hemp. Hemp is not a drug, but it is related to marijuana. It does produce far more biodiesel per pound than any other plant and it burns much cleaner and it grows in the most harshest of conditions.

The American people are tired of having a leader who is number one in wind power, they want a leader who will protect and defend the Constitution, they want a leader who will protect their liberties, they want a leader who can do more than smile pretty for the camera/

We will have to wait until 2012 for that issue to be resolved, unless of course someone comes up with the real obama birth certificate, in the meantime, we have the 2010 election that have the likes of many Socialist democrats already checking out the help wanted sections of their newspapers.

Democrats Rush to Grab More Power Before Elections

Let's face it, both Democrats and Republicans have done a great deal of damage to our liberties and freedoms. It is the reason why the Republicans lost control of the house and senate and it will be the reason the Democrats loose their seats come November.

Americans are not angry, they are at a boiling point. They are tired of corporate interests manipulating our legislators and our legislators refusing to represent the average person.

Health Care Reform = Heath Control
Financial reform will = Financial Control
Patriot Act = Unpatriotic
Real ID = National ID
Immigration Reform = Amnesty
Cap & Trade = Energy Control & more taxes

Republicans know the American people will just go to the ballots in a rash of furry over the HCR and possibly amnesty, but, before they do, they may stop and think that it was the republicans who brought about some of this legislation and the republicans pushed fro Amnesty two years ago.

In the mean time, Democrats are on the offensive, training their campaign workers who will go door to door touting all the great things about HCR. They will forget to mention things, like reduced health care for all, increased taxes, fines and jail for those who refuse to accept health insurance, National ID health Card, National Health Record database, unfettered access to bank accounts in case they need to squeeze more money from you for your health care and the list goes on.

The Democrats know they will loose out come November, they have Obama who has some of his lowest approval ratings out touting their great work for voting against the will of the American people.

Of course, now they (Democrats & Republicans) want the Federal Reserve to have more power to screw up our financial system and the Democrats want more power and control over the very energy we use in our homes. Many are still so very ignorant of Climategate or simply ignoring a truth that is to inconvenient for their socialist agenda.

While I am not Libertarian, I do suggest that people look at independent candidates, lets stop this right left paradigm and start looking at reality. The fact is, that both parties have done us wrong and we need some strong independent constructionally minded individuals running our nation.

Don't be boiled in the VAT

Quote of the Day: "Nothing is official, until it has first been denied." -- Jerry Hughes, radio talk show host, and a friend of Downsize DC

You probably have a fundamental disagreement with the politicians who represent you . . .

* They think your money is their money, and they determine what your "allowance" will be
* You probably think that you are not a slave, and that you work to fulfill your own dreams, not theirs

Consider -- If you had a choice, would you rather give your money to . . .

* The Department of Housing and Urban Development, or Habitat for Humanity?
* The Department of the Interior, or groups like the Nature Conservancy and Ducks Unlimited?
* The Department of Education, or a local private school?
* The National Institute of Health (NIH), or St. Joseph's Hospital and the Shriner's Hospitals?

If you're like me, the NIH is the only bureaucracy that might spark a glimmer of interest. But I must wonder, if state-directed medical research is really such a great thing, why must it be funded at gun point?

Other State efforts provoke similar questions. And I can summarize my answers as follows . . .

There's nothing the federal government does that I value anywhere near as much as it costs. I would gladly choose a private, voluntary alternative for nearly every so-called "service" The State provides. I even think it screws up national defense, creating more enemies for me than it actually kills or constrains.

If I could fire my so-called government, I would. But I can't -- it's a monopoly protected by violence and intimidation, with the result that . . .

There doesn't seem to be any limit to how much of my money the know-it-all, busy-body politicians want to spend. They have no brakes. However . . .

Since the bond market does place a severe limit on how much money The State can borrow, there is more and more talk of raising taxes. In particular there's now a great deal of talk about a federal VAT.

VAT stands for Value Added Tax. A VAT is like a sales taxes except that the state and local sales taxes you're used to paying are only imposed at the final point of sale. By contrast . . .

A federal VAT is a sales tax imposed at EVERY STEP from production through distribution to final sale. In other words, the tax would be imposed at every point at which value is added to a product. That's why they call it a "value-added" tax.

We expect President Obama's current commission on the federal deficit to recommend a VAT. Now, the Obama administration has been quick to deny that it wants to impose a VAT, but we don't believe it. When politicians' move their lips, there's a considerable chance they're lying, and any denial is usually a prelude to confirmation. So you need to decide . . .

Do you want to pay more taxes, or do you want the politicians to cut spending?
* Are you going to tell them what you want, or will you sanction what happens by remaining silent?

Resistance is simple.I just sent a letter to Congress, using's "cut spending" campaign.

You can copy or borrow from what I said in my letter . . .

You are spending too much, and borrowing too much. This must end. You must balance your books. And you must do it by cutting spending -- NOT by increasing taxes. Please pay special attention to the following -- NO Value Added Tax!


Remember, Congress cannot hear what you do NOT say.

You can send your own letter to Congress using's Educate the Powerful System.

Please forward this Dispatch to others, and ask them to also send letters to Congress opposing a Value Added Tax.
