Boehner and McConnell Speak – Mr. Obama, it's about the People

Editor’s Note – As many pundits agreed, the President’s response to the historical drubbing his party took on Tuesday  was dubious at best. He spoke about hearing the 2/3 of America that spoke by staying home instead of the ones that actually voted. It was almost contempt for the people to swat away how the elections turned out. This was clearly a repudiation of you Mr. Obama.

He talked about working together with Congress and his tone sounded conciliatory, but his words belied all. He said he does not read the tea leaves of elections yet he spiked the football in the past telling America that “elections have consequences!” Now, not so much? Mr. Obama – you and Harry Reid were basically handed your hats.

Obama seems to think that Congress now owes him something it appeared from his presser. He wants Congress to give him their plans and ideas, as if that is how it is supposed to work. Unfortunately, his edicts to Congress means he is telling the Americans they represent that he is still going to do what he feels is necessary – alone.

Boehner speaks to the President - for 'We The People' about the results of election 2014
Boehner speaks to the President – for ‘We The People’ about the results of election 2014

Yesterday, newly reelected and presumptive Majority Leader of the Senate for the 114th Congress, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner today, each spoke in tones not heard in years and rang out clear as a bell. Mr. Obama, your policies are what are on trial here, not Congress’.

It is very difficult to know exactly how bad things were in the Senate behind closed doors, and how difficult it was to stay civil with Harry Reid and other shrill Democrat Senators. Many got mad that he did not fight back more fiercely and that Boehner was too timid. In January, we will see for ourselves how their metal is forged.

Since we have never had enough power against Obama’s policies, now we get to see the forces come to bear on him, not on the people anymore. We at SUA have been critical of Boehner and McConnell in the past, now we hope we were incorrect. We like the initial statements, now we get to see how they will proceed.

Several times Boehner pointed out to the President, that they were going to do the will of the people, that is their job.

Mr. Obama, America spoke loud and clear, liberal policies and go-it-alone strategies and policies are unwelcome – this rang true not only in the US Congress, but even more clearly in Governor’s offices and Statehouses across the land. America was seeing red, and now America is painted red once again.

‘Republicans had a good night’ is the best you can say? No, America had a GREAT night. McConnell: “Trust but verify” is the start, let’s see what Obama does now and if he burns his fingers for ‘playing with matches’ as Boehner said.

John Boehner Strikes Combative Tone

House Speaker Puts Onus on Obama to Work With Republicans

By Michael Crittenden – WSJ

Washington—House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) struck a combative tone Thursday in his first post election comments, vowing the House would again vote to repeal the federal health-care law and warning the White House from “poisoning the well” on immigration.

The presumptive new Majority Leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell – Harry Reid, you’ve been fired!

Emboldened by electoral victories that allowed Republicans to take control of the Senate, Mr. Boehner put the onus on President Barack Obama to work with Republicans now that they will control both the House and Senate in the new year.

“Finding common ground is going to be hard work, but it will be even harder if the president isn’t willing to work with us,” Mr. Boehner said in a news conference on Capitol Hill.

Mr. Boehner specifically warned Mr. Obama from taking executive action to address problems with the immigration system. Such a move could ruin any chances of lawmakers taking on a broad overhaul of a system the Ohio Republican said is not working.

“If the president continues to act on his own, he’s going to poison the well,” Mr. Boehner said. “When you play with matches, you take the risk of burning yourself, and he’s going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path.”

Mr. Boehner laid out a number of items on Republicans’ wish list to address when the new Congress begins its term in January. Mr. Boehner said lawmakers will work on approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, an overhaul of the tax code, and a number of bills related to the economy that the House has voted on and passed this year.

Additionally, he said Republicans would continue to try and repeal Mr. Obama’s signature achievement in office, the Affordable Care Act.

“Obamacare is hurting our economy, is hurting middle class families,” Mr. Boehner said. “It should be repealed and it should be replaced with common sense reforms. Whether that can pass the Senate I don’t know, but I know in the House it will pass.”

The AMERICANS strongly believe that life, liberty, citizenship and the pursuit of happiness are the unalienable RIGHTS of every American Citizen that cannot be taken or transferred. However, not until We the People become brutally frank with ourselves and with each other will the Constitution be taken off the shelf and once again become operational. Only then can the Republic can be restored and preserved in its original ordained Constitutional Power and form.

We The People have suffered enormously since 1913 under the combined rule of two domineering political parties of 537 elected politicians (100 Senators, 435 Representatives, the President/Vice President) along with those they have appointed. Tax and Spend, along with whatever it takes to rule, is the quest of one of the domineering parties.

1913-worst-year

 

In the opposing party, weak backbones, failing to stand up and lead for what a majority of citizen voters want, coupled with the elite of the party stealth-fully blending in with the tax and spend party, have destructively allowed the confiscation of far too much of the wages and retirement incomes from the citizens who pay income taxes.

These facts are now becoming more recognized with the most recent dastardly additions of: countless political deceptions, lies, national economic destruction, purposeful job-killing, the stealthful demise of America’s middle class, no Administration help for the massive unemployment of Black Americans plus the politically purposeful illegal alien invasion of the United States. Along with forty percent of the people within the fifty state borders who are receiving food stamps.

This all is treason to each separate state and to the citizens within the several states and it is perpetuated by the elected and appointed inside the Washington DC beltway.black workers

The Constitution requires that all laws must be faithfully executed, but far too many are not and have not been – – – specifically by the Executive Branch. Nor has the Oversight Power of Congress been exercised to ensure Executive Leadership enforcement of United States laws.

These self-serving political failures have become destructive to the well-being, liberty and happiness of most American citizens. It must be recognized that “New Guards” for future personal safety and National Security must peacefully be put into place by citizens beginning with votes at the ballot box.

Failed leadership can no longer stand if the Constitution and the Republic are to be preserved for our children and all future generations.

A deep look has been taken into the several national crises by “The Americans” leadership who care greatly about the Republic, the People and the Constitution. Necessary and workable solutions have been developed to help solve and fix what has without question stunted our Nation’s ability to clearly, legally and peacefully function as a Constitutional Republic.

KEY NATIONAL ISSUES that must be solved if the separate and collective States of The United States of America are to become economically solvent, remain peaceful and nationally secure are:

  • The Constitution of the United States as originally established and amended will remain in absolute and total effect. The original XIII Amendment as written and ratified is an operational Amendment and will be adhered to immediately. (The original XIII Amendment was falsely hidden by less than honorable men of the times). Congress shall make all laws necessary for carrying into execution the Powers authorized in the Constitution and that all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives. Constant Congressional leadership oversight will be maintained at all times.All Laws requiring Executive action will be faithfully executed upon receipt from Congress by the President and appropriate departments and selected agencies of Government under the President’s sworn responsibility and authority.
  • A strong National Defense of well-trained Active Duty, Guard and Reserve Forces maintained with proper equipment that can deter any enemy activism, or fight and win if deterrence fails will be assured by both the House and Senate of the US Congress for the protection of “We the People” and the preservation of the Constitution and the Republic. Readiness at all times will include a nuclear capability to win if Congress declares war against an enemy aggressor.United States ConstitutionThe United States Military will in no way be used against United States Citizens. To do so will trigger expeditious Congressional actions to immediately and permanently remove anyone exercising such orders from elected or appointed office.
  • The United States Government cannot rebound from the man-made economic crises without satisfactory employment for a majority of American citizens. In turn, satisfactory and sustainable employment for American citizens simply cannot be achieved with the excessive tax rates that now exist for US businesses and the American people.All political plundering of the people’s wealth via taxation will be stopped. Our banking system and wealth management have been corrupted with the 1913 establishment of the Federal Reserve System, placing monetary and economic control in the hands of a few (now partisan) individuals.The Federal Reserve System will be abolished and all US Government financial and economic functions will be turned over to the US Treasury, including the coining and printing of currency and the issuing of currency. US green-back bills will be printed and a one –for- one exchange to replace Federal Reserve notes will take place.
  • The IRS will immediately be abolished and that form of US government taxation will cease and desist. A zero-interest National Debt will be established at the US Treasury and a GDP annual growth limit not to exceed 3% will be tied to the previous year GDP growth. A transition to a “fair or flat” tax must be accomplished as a priority.
  • The Illegal Alien Invasion of the United States will be stopped with a Secured Borders Double Fence on The US Southern Border and more Border Guards stationed on the Northern Border. All US borders will be further controlled and severe penalties (financial and incarceration) for employers who hire illegal aliens. Foreign countries will have named financial and trade restriction obligations to the United States for all of their citizens who come over US Borders illegally.irs-scandalThere will be absolutely no jobs, no social services, no welfare nor medical services allowed to be provided to illegal alien invaders. (Emergency medical care only will be provided until they are deported to home from which departed). American jobs are for US citizens, returning military veterans, part time high school students and the elderly. When US employers cannot find workers and can fully justify seeking foreign workers, Government permission will be granted for hiring temporary foreign workers.
  • The DHS with functions for national security and FEMA for emergencies have both grown far beyond the intentions of reasonable and responsible leadership control, budgeting, manpower, equipment and facilities. Deceptive political intentions for the potential use of facilities, weapons, massive purchases of ammunition plus military-type vehicles and railroad cars are greatly objectionable to American citizens and an insult to the economic deficit of the Nation.America’s leadership needs to be well-versed with the Active Military, County Sheriffs, Local Law Enforcement and National Guard overall capabilities within the continental limits of the United States that can handle any and all emergency situations, foreign or domestic, that might be faced. The DHS will be disbanded and certain functions will be merged into the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of Interior (DOI).The FEMA name will be changed to “The National Emergency Agency” (TNEA) and manpower will be greatly reduced and merged into the DOI to be used for national emergency situations only. Their budget and emergency dispatch activities in the east, central and western parts of the country will be managed through the three numbered Air Forces of the Air Force Reserve Command.All weapons, munitions and military-type vehicles will be transferred to the DOD immediately. All holding and or compound-type facilities will be closed and transferred permanently to local governments for non-detention uses only.
  • The Department of Energy will be abolished and certain specified oversight functions would be moved to the Department of Commerce.Shuttered Depattments
  • The Department of Education will be abolished and its functions and all funding responsibility will be returned to each individual state, territory and the District of Columbia.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be abolished with responsibilities and functions removed to each individual state. Conflicts will be resolved at the Department of Commerce while working with the states.
  • In addition, selected Agencies will be moved from the National Capitol area and disbursed into the interior for cost-effective and long-term security reasons as well as seeking more diversified hiring of high quality civilian personnel throughout a larger portion of the Nation. (Rust-belt areas of high unemployment in the mid-west and other locations of far greater physical expansion capability will be given priority consideration for these moves and jobs.
  • The partisan and destructive Democrat Affordable Health Care Plan will be repealed and pre-2009 Medicare Programs will be fully reconstituted. Necessary changes and revisions to the existing Social Security System to ensure self-funding.
  • The Executive order that allows unions to exist in government and do collective bargaining in any and all tax-payer funded government jobs will be rescinded.
  • It will be the policy and understanding within the entire Republic to recognize each County Sheriff as the Elected Senior Law Enforcement Officer in each respective County and that a well-regulated militia, if formed, will be responsive to his Constitutional Sworn Oath as necessary requirements for security of a free state.
  • The United Nations will be defunded from the excessive monetary proportions US taxpayers have been forced to fund and a strong effort will be made to move this overbearing activity out of the United States. Politicians must come to realize that no United Nations deliberations can override the US Constitution.
  • Education, kindergarten through grade twelve, is a fundamental right for American school-age children and is a responsibility of county or city taxpayers to insure funding for that right. Citizen school children in far too many public schools have been denied that fundamental right to an education due to handicaps in classroom and interferences caused by countless non-English speaking children plus overcrowding and scarce tax dollars used to accommodate illegal alien school children. order_today_dvd1In addition to US Borders becoming secure, the 5 to 4 decision by the Burger Supreme Court that allowed all who choose to attend American taxpayer-funded schools regardless of citizenship will be revisited using Chief Justice Burger’s dissenting opinion as grounds for new litigation.
  • Begin a systematic process to reorganize the Department of Defense into an organization of National Security that can prepare us for today and tomorrow with “forward strategies” that secure America.

It is the general consensus of The Americans Project that If the Republican Party does not hold the line in the US House of Representatives to secure the Southern US Border, plus demand existing immigration laws be faithfully executed by the Executive Branch, then stop all Senate Immigration Reform and also stand firm for defunding Obama-care, the results will be the demise of the Republican Party in the 2014 and 2016 elections.

The 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections were lost because many Republican and Independent voters stayed home. There must be Honest National Leadership in place for the America First voters who care about the Constitution, the Republic and a secure future for their children.

Independent Constitutional Leadership selected by The Americans Project will be that Leadership. It will also become more evident to the voters that the course the Democrats have planned for America is destructive far beyond the imagination.

This nation is being torn apart daily as the crises facts become known. Also most disturbing to Americans who care is the fact many are not confident We the People have a Constitutional Government in place because to this date absolutely no one has seen one document verifying Constitutional qualification of the person occupying the White House.

Congress ignores all petitions for a redress of grievances and the Judiciaries at all levels of government have dismissed every attempt at addressing a legal option. The Democrat Party leadership signed two separate and different documents certifying eligibility to run for office as well as re-election eligibility.

This is pure and simple elected and appointed sworn politicians run amok. Enough is enough. If the United States of America and the separate states are to survive these greedy self-serving destructive political onslaughts, new leadership in existing elective offices is a must for every citizen.

Our government (all branches) of, by and for the people has lost control and has led us down a very destructive path of tyranny, ineptness, corruption, cover-ups and deceit. We have to a degree lost the necessary checks and balances designed to provide an essential balance of power.

That has led to a far-reaching federal government and an infringement on states’ rights. We must save the Republic and the country before we get to the point of no return. A National Call to Action is required by all of us to get our country on track! God save the Republic!

"We the People" petitions on WH Site – Do you want to aid Syria?

By Scott W. Winchell and Denise Simon

When it comes to foreign policy, the pundits and the media seem to believe the Obama Administration has had a good track record – making him a better candidate based on foreign policy aspects. Of course, that is simply not the case.

There have been zero diplomatic victories in ages, let alone during this administration. The reason they fail so often is they are utterly naive about Israel and the dangers it faces, Iran and its global intentions, the ideology of Islam, the Syrian revolution, the true nature and intentions of the Muslim Brotherhood, and eastern culture in general.

Therefore it will be interesting to find out how they respond to a recent petition posted on the “We the People” web page on the White House’s official site. The petition was posted today, and their goal is 25,000 signatures. If that threshold is achieved, the White House says on the site that they will respond. In the case of this petition, they should not wait for the threshold to be achieved – this one needs to be addressed now!

The subject of this petition is:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Petition to end direct and indirect aid to the armed opposition rebels in Syria.

Indirect and direct aid to the armed opposition in Syria is causing continued slaughter of innocent Syrian citizens. Even with US aid surrounding middle eastern countries, the money is funding weapons to the armed opposition. There is a connection with the armed opposition and Al-Qaeda. Majority of the armed oppositions rebels are not citizens from Syria. Bashar Al Assad has placed many positive reform in Syria. He has, openly and on many occasions welcomed open dialog with the opposition. Including the Free Syrian army. The armed opposition including the Free Sryian Army rejects any and all forms of civilized dialog. The way to insure human rights in Syria is to listen to what the real Syrian citizens are saying.

Of course, this person is woefully uninformed, but how would the people know otherwise? Obama has done almost nothing but call for Assad to step down. There is talk of $25 million that has been earmarked to go to Syrian opposition in only non-lethal aid, but the stories of the CIA helping the FSA is untrue. Yes CIA Director David Petreaus has visited Turkey twice now, but that was for talks. The constant talk that AQ has a big hand in this feeds into the propaganda that SUA knows is untrue – those are excuses created by Russia and Iran to give Assad some sort of credibility – which he is now devoid of entirely.

From Fox News:

The State Department set aside $25 million to supply the political opposition with non-lethal assistance, distributing 900 pieces of equipment through one program called the Conflict Stabilization Office. The gear includes cameras to document atrocities for potential future prosecutions, encrypted radios, phones, laptops and software that can be used to circumvent Internet controls, according to officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the details.

Propaganda has been flowing from Russia and the Assad Regime, but all the talk about helping the rebels is all over the map, most of which is untrue from American sources of aid.

Therefore, it would be interesting to see how the White House can inform the public – dispelling the incorrect assumptions, providing the citizenry with a firm understanding of what they intend to do, and “Giving all Americans a way to engage their government on the issues that matter to them.” Okay Mr. Obama – time to engage!

This page’s intent is described in a statement by Obama:

“My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and efffectiveness in government.”

Here is a screen shot of this site where one can browse petitions and sign them; if one is not available, you can create one, and at some point the administration will respond to it:

Here is a screen shot of this petition:

Perhaps all Americans should start petitions here and see what the White House does in this election season. Go ahead, take a shot, make them engage on what matters to you.
