Along with the news the Media won't report, we have the best of the web with wisdom & insight.

Illegal immigration is simply 'share the wealth’ socialism and a CRIME not a race!

Time to speak up, Sarah Palin, what's it going to be???

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The shameless media and country club republican attacks on Sarah Palin during the 2008 election were, well, shameless.....and TheTownCrier came to her defense many times!

But like most politicians, Sarah has a group of worshipers who just don't care about facts or her position on vital issues. One she has avoided like the plague is illegal immigration. We found that Sarah and McCain had little in common during the election, a good thing, and HOPE the immigration issue isn't what they found common ground on. We have a few clues, but nothing definitive from Palin. During the election, conservatives worried about border security relied on this:
"That sells a lot more than “my friends” and comprehensive immigration reform. And she’s not for comprehensive reform, I can tell you that right now. She’s sick to death of this immigration nonsense in the United States."Source: Laura Ingraham radio show Mar 10, 2008

That's what we hung our hat on when we voted for Palin. The problem is those are Laura Ingraham's opinions, she had no quotes from Palin. But we do have quotes from later interviews:

PALIN: “. We - our policy - John McCain has been so clear with his policy and it makes a lot of sense too. We secure our borders first. But then with a comprehensive approach we must deal humanely with those who are here, and we must allow the steps to be taken to protect the families of those who are here, maybe as illegal immigrants today....."

UNIVISION: “Talking about - still with immigration - ICE has arrested and deported almost five thousand undocumented immigrants in the last year, separated many Hispanic families. Would you support stopping these raids until comprehensive immigration reform could be passed in Congress?”

Palin: “Well, the unfortunate thing of course about the raids is that it does affect the families involved here. Parents and children are separated and that’s tragic.” (No, that is by choice of the alien, Sarah - they can take their kids and we pay for it!)

“Univision: To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?
Sarah Palin: I do because I understand why people would want to be in America.”
Univision: As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported?
Sarah Palin: There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant - there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants - not only economically is that just an impossibility but that’s not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue that we face with illegal immigration."

Now we find out that SarahPac has donated only to candidates who are for John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, etc. Sarah came out strongly against Obamacare, but never objected to the fact that illegal aliens would get the benefits.

Is Sarah actually the 'people's' candidate as she contributes to the biggest open border RINO's in congress? If she so politically savy, as her followers contend, she ought to think about, in poll after poll, the fact that 75% of this country does NOT favor abandoning enforcement of the law or 'comprehensive immigration reform'.....a misleading phrase which means AMNESTY.

Ted Kennedy proved the only thing amnesty promotes is more illegal immigration.
May he rest in peace, and may Palin get on the right side of this issue and speak up!
Many of us would like to support you, but first you must support the sovereignty of this nation.

NOTE: Fox news: One final point comes from the real cost of amnesty. The Heritage Foundation has estimated amnesty would cost the taxpayer more than $2.6 trillion.
Until American laws are enforced, it remains clear the American people do not want any form of Amnesty.

So what's it going to be, Sarah? The votes of illegal aliens or the votes of conservative USA citizens who supported you?

Federal Government Will Borrow 40 Percent of the Money It Spends Next Year, Says White House Report

...39.9 percent of all federal income will be borrowed, making borrowing the single largest share of revenue in 2010. The next largest component of federal revenue is the personal income tax, which accounts for only 27.3 percent of federal funds. This is only slightly lower than in 2009, when the federal government borrowed 43.3 percent of the money it has spent so far...

Wonder why California is broke??? Senior Illegal aliens!

Yes, there are plenty of reasons, and here is just one! California gives over and above what the feds give to Illegal Aliens. Yesterday I was at my doctor's office and picked up a booklet funded 'with a generous grant from the Calif. Bar Foundation', titled, "Seniors & the Law" A Guide for Maturing Californians. They pointed out many programs, such as property tax deferment for seniors in financial trouble, that have been eliminated because of budget cuts...but they didn't cut this one!

Pg. 3

"California's cash Assistance Program is for Seniors.... turned down because of their immigration status....such seniors may be able to get almost the same amount of cash as they would have through SSI"

By the way, California SSI and all the goodies that go with it pays more than my 45 year paid into Social Security would pay per month!

R.I.P. Sen. Ted Kennedy 1932- 2009

God just saved Ted from being here to push another amnesty and be proven a liar yet again.

Here is Ted Kennedy commenting on the 1965 immigration bill,Quote
“The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission.” End of Quote.

Ted Kennedy on the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Bill, Quote:
“This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”
End of Quote.

Ted Kennedy(2007) on the McCain/Kennedy immigration proposal, Quote:
“The plan will strengthen our borders and our national security while providing a tough but fair path to citizenship for millions of people.” End of Quote

See video here of Sen. Kennedy pandering with a 'Spanish' song. This Latino
Website was not impressed!
Addendum: Aug. 27, 2009
CBS just did a glowing tribute to Sen. Kennedy featuring all the people he has helped over the years, mostly in Massachusetts.....the disabled, girls getting to play more sports, community centers, the illegal aliens all over the country who got one of his many amnesties. (see list below)
Yes, he did help a lot of people with his socialist legislation. Can't deny that. We always wondered who was voting for this guy....the people who got something out of it, that's who. Of course, in liberal, Northeastern Massachusetts, there aren't too many victims of illegal alien crime to have voted against him.

"In essence, not only are the victims of illegal alien crime ignored and forgotten, they are not even given the dignity of being a statistic. They just disappear. We are creating this registry and data base to change this disgrace, because the government should be tracking this aspect of crime. As you peruse the VOIAC database and note the incredible number, and horrific impact, of the crimes committed by illegal aliens, remember that none of these crimes ever would have been committed if the President and Congress were exercising their constitutionally-mandated responsibilities of securing the border and enforcing existing law!"

Perhaps these are the folks who we should be celebrating today. They paid with their lives for the legislation Ted Kennedy pushed through for special interest groups. (a few of the victims)
"In collaboration with other investigations, FSM has discovered that the illegal alien population contains a disproportionately large percentage of hard core criminals, sexual predators, and drunken drivers. While the President and Congress have basically proposed amnesty to all the illegal aliens who are currently in the United States, for the most part they do not want to discuss or make known the massive collateral damage that many of those same illegal aliens are inflicting on the American people. Once those illegal aliens are made legal immigrants, or guest workers, they will simply be added to the resident criminal population."

Ted Kennedy pushed SEVEN amnesties into law. None was followed by a reduction in illegal immigration.

1. In 1986, Ted Kennedy's blanket amnesty for 2.7 million illegal aliens promised a lot more enforcement but did not set any requirements for actual reductions in illegal immigration.

2. In 1994, Ted Kennedy's Section 245(i) Amnesty gave legal residence and jobs to 578,000 illegal aliens. It was a temporary rolling amnesty primarily for extended family members of immigrants who instead of waiting in line, come on to the country illegally.

3. In 1997, Ted Kennedy's extension of the Section 245(i) rolling amnesty was followed by an increasing flow of illegal immigration.

4. In 1997, Ted Kennedy also won an amnesty for close to one million illegal aliens from Central America. Illegal immigration sped up some more.

5. In 1998, Ted Kennedy won an amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.

6. In 2000, Ted Kennedy got the so-called Late Amnesty, legalizing another 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed that they missed out on Kennedy's 1986 amnesty.

7. In 2000, Ted Kennedy also won the LIFE Act Amnesty for an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens. It was another reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) estimated 900,000 illegal aliens. Illegal immigration accelerated.

The War Next Door is here....800 miles from the Mexican Border


Headline: Record marijuana grow pulled up by the roots in Siskiyou County

full version video:

What is truly interesting about this story is that the local CBS TV affiliate, KTVL Channel 10 finally ‘gets it’. They actually did some reporting on these pot farms being run on public lands by organized Mexican Drug Cartels after years of many of us pleading with them to inform the public of this danger. What is frightening, is how real that danger has become.

This marijuana grow stretched 2 miles. For years, our local sheriffs have fought these incursions, only to watch them grow more widespread. Siskiyou county is a conservative, quiet sparsely populated huge land mass. Along peaceful country roads that have been settled by old families, independent, self reliant types, late in the night citizens now hear voices in Spanish conversing as they walk up and down ‘patrolling’.

We knew the cartels were armed, that they contained the worst elements of Mexican organized crime; the Zeta’s, various cartels, MS-13, awol military. What we didn’t know, is now that their enterprise of growing on millions of acres of USA land became so successful , is that now the cartels are at war with each other over ‘territory’ and contraband crops. One group may go in and cultivate the crop, only to have it taken with force by a better armed gang.

We have been warned for years in the counties of No.California and So. Oregon to stay clear of the ‘woods’, to never approach anything that looked like a pot farm.
Now we are being warned of the war between the cartels taking place on our peaceful country lanes. It is easier for the cartels to recruit laborers, with less risk to grow on these ‘protected sanctuaries’ than it is in Mexico. Where shall we go to escape?

Last week these cartels burned 860,000 acres in California. Will we become ‘collateral’ damage to their fires or their bullets? Unlike Mexico, in what has become an every day occurrence , we’ve had no beheadings...yet.

Our Department of Homeland security is spending billions in Mexico to help them fight these cartels there, to keep any of our guns from entering Mexico. But they say they don’t have the money to stop these invading armies from crossing the border and infiltrating our property. This congress refuses to fund a fence, but they’ll fund our people to go to Mexico and tell you this entire problem is the fault of the USA because some of our guns go to Mexico. When their criminal cast-offs are stopped from coming in, our guns will stop going out since the same people are working both sides of the border.

Another headline that just bolsters this situation today:

Mexican drug cartels now recruiting hit men from U.S. military
Examiner/Mike Cutler ^ | Aug. 20, 2009 | Norfolk Crime Examiner Dave Gibson

Pfc. Michael Jackson Apodaca, 18 who was arrested Monday, is accused of working as a paid hit man, and assassinating a member of the Juarez Cartel who had become an informant for U.S. authorities.

Along with Apodaca, El Paso police have charged Ruben Rodriguez Dorado, 30, and Christopher Andrew Duran, 17 with capital murder.

The informant, Jose Daniel Gonzalez Galeana, was shot several times at his home on May 15.

Both Dorado and Duran told detectives that Apodaca was the one paid to carry out the execution. Witness accounts along with the police investigation have confirmed this.

Pfc. Apodaca enlisted in the Army in September 2008. He is stationed with the 11th Air Defense Artillery Brigade at Fort Bliss.

While this is the first known instance of a U.S. soldier working as an assassin for the drug cartels, this may simply be a consequence of the evolving threat posed to this country by the cartels, as well as a result of the criminal gang activity which now exists in the U.S. military.

In April 2009, the FBI released a statement on the growing problem of gangs in the military, and the threat they now pose to U.S. police officers. What follows is an excerpt from that statement:

“Gang members with military training pose a unique threat to law enforcement personnel because of the distinctive military skills that they possess and their willingness to teach these skills to fellow gang members. While the number of gang members trained by the military is unknown, the threat that they pose to law enforcement is potentially significant, particularly if gang members trained in weapons, tactics, and planning pass this instruction on to other gang members.”

The National Gang Assessment Center has identified the following Latino street and prison gangs as having gang members who were trained in the U.S. military:

-18th Street Gang

-Florencia 13

-Latin Kings

-Mexican Mafia (La Eme)

-MS 13



The military does not currently keep data on gang activity within their ranks. However, FBI gang investigator Jennifer Simon said in a recent article: "Gang membership in the U.S. Armed Forces is disproportional to the U.S. population.”

The prevailing estimate among most experts is that out of every 100 people who enter the military, at least two are gang members.

One of the reasons for the increasing number of gang members joining the military, is the fact that the lowering of recruiting standards, mainly by the Army. Of course, this is due to the two wars dragging on in Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the Michael D. Palm Center at the University of California, between 2003 and 2006, recruiters allowed 4,230 convicted criminals into the Army.

A note from Mike Cutler, former INS agent, who sent out this article:

"Today, with some 230 American cities being identified as being infested by the extremely violent Mexican drug cartels with additional cities also being infested by other similarly violent gangs, the potential for extreme violence being perpetrated against our citizens and our law enforcement officials is obviously a serious threat and must be dealt with swiftly and decisively by our federal government.

It is now estimated that there are, already, more gang members in our country than sworn police officers.

The discussions about the creation of a massive amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens as we are hearing at the present is nothing short of alarming! I you add the number of alien gang members with the number of United States citizens who have been and continue to be recruited into gangs now, the numbers are truly staggering!

It is a virtual certainty that such an amnesty would provide gang members with even more opportunities to enlist in our military to receive the training that would enable them to do to the United States what Los Zetas is now doing to Mexico.

You might say that the "handwriting is on the wall" and in this case the handwriting is the gang graffiti that is used to mark off territory by gangs seeking to control their turf..

Furthermore, it is unconscionable that this issue, of gang violence, is never addressed by so-called "pro-immigrant" organizations. These folks know damned well that these threats are often used by the various ethnic gangs and that this is not limited to just Latino gangs but is used by every gang from every foreign country and ethnicity.

The outrage is that often lawful immigrants who arrive in our country expecting to live a life free of the violence and threats of violence that terrified them in their home countries quickly find that the same thugs who made their lives miserable back home have managed to come to the United States and continue to prey upon them and their families both in the United States and in their home countries as well.

This is certainly not the "American Dream" but does represent one hell of a nightmare!
It is now estimated that there are, already, more gang members in our country than sworn police officers.

The large scale apathy demonstrated by citizens of this nation has emboldened elected representatives to all but ignore the needs of the average American citizen in a quest for massive campaign funds and the promises of votes to be ostensibly delivered by special interest groups. There is much that we cannot do but there is one thing that We the People absolutely must do- we must stop sitting on the sidelines!

The collective failure of We the People to get involved in make our concerns known to our politicians have nearly made the concerns of the great majority of the citizens of this nation all but irrelevant to the politicians.

I implore you to get involved!”


California fires caused by Mexican cartel: officials

August 19, 2009 - 1:53PM

Sydney Morning Herald

The fires that hit a protected forest area in mountains close to the north-western California city of Santa Barbara could have been started by Mexican drug traffickers, officials say.

"The reality is that we could have an army out there and not be able to cover all of that ground," Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told reporters, saying he based his claim on the size of a marijuana farm and equipment found where the fire began.

His statement confirmed claims made over the weekend by officials at Los Padres National Forest.

Some 30,000 marijuana plants, some as high as six feet (1.83 metres), were found in a remote forest area officials say was likely being used as an illegal pot garden by a Mexico-based drug operation.

A special team of US Forest Service, a counternarcotics police unit and investigators from the Santa Barbara County Fire Department uncovered stacks of propane tanks, irrigation tubing, empty fertilizer canisters, a cooking stove and a semi-automatic rifle, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The major Los Padres fire has been burning since August 8, destroying over 88,650 acres (35,875 hectares) but is now 75 per cent under control, Calfire said.

Local counternarcotics units had travelled through the same area several months ago and were surprised by the new find.

So far this year, US Forest Service and Santa Barbara County counternarcotics agents have uprooted a record 225,058 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $US675 million ($816 million) dollars.

In July, agents pulled 113,000 plants at a camp not far from the site where the fire broke out.

Santa Barbara is about 350 kilometres from the US border with Mexico between San Diego and Tijuana, one of the most patrolled points along the nearly 3000-kilometre long divide between the two North American countries.

Government healthcare, "Watch your back, Jack!



First the government cripples you, then it tries to sell you a crutch!

I have some relatives who just can't let go of the 'glow' of the Obama presidency and the hollow promise of 'free health care'. I am reminded of a line from the great movie, 'A clear and present danger'. Jack Ryan, played by Harrison Ford is going to Washington DC to do battle with the politicians. His mentor, played by the wonderful James Earl Jones tells Ford that he can describe Washington DC politics in four words:

"Watch your back, Jack!

I would like to know from the faithful believers in this health care legislation farce......
Do you let your grown children have control of your insurance and health care?
No? Why not?
They don't need control over you?
None of their business?
Do you think your kids care less about you than some faceless bureaucrat in DC?

When the government controls your health care, government controls our life! This is one of the last freedom we have, they already control our income, etc. and I'm not content to turn it over to a government, any government. And it sure doesn't take 1000 pages to 'fix' the problems we have to insure a very small percentage of the population...a good percentage of them being illegal aliens..

which reminds me....For a dozen years, I have asked this question:
Name 3 things the government doesn't tax, regulate or prohibit........
No one has ever been able to do it. But I finally know of one thing!

Good article:


(the BEST expose', by a physician)
American Daughter ^ | 8-21-2009 | David H. Janda, MD

[snips] As a physician who has authored books on Preventative Health Care and Health Care Cost Containment, I was recently given the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The Capitol Building in Washington D.C… The presentation, entitled Health Care Reform; The Power & Profit of Prevention was well received.

In preparation for the presentation, I read the latest version of “reform” as authored by The Obama Administration and supported by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid. It is important to realize that The Obama Health Care Plan is comprised of two parts…..that’s right, not one but two parts.

The first part of The Obama Health Care Plan was buried in The Stimulus Bill which was signed into law by the President in February . It is the second part of The Health Care Plan which is now being debated in Congress. Below is the link to the over 1000 page document…..

Let me summarize just a few salient points of the two part Obama Health Care Plan. Warning……. They need to put the same warning on The Obama Health Care Plan as they do a pack of cigarettes…..Consuming this product WILL be hazardous to your health. .......

I rest my case….The Health Care Plan authored by Obama / Pelosi / Reid is hazardous to the health of every American.

In the question/answer session following my Capitol Hill presentation, a Congressman asked: “I am doing a number of network interviews next week on the Obama Health Care Plan. If I am asked what is the one word to describe the plan, what should I answer?”

The answer is simple, honest, direct, analytical, and sad, but truthful. The word is FASCIST.


The cartoon every American NEEDS to see! This Cold War propaganda short from 1948 shows how we all lose under big government... including the business tycoons, politicians, unions, farmers and John Q. Public . And, what can happen if America loses it's individuality and entrepreneurship in favor of the collective and oppressive.

85,000 Acre California Fire caused by Mexican Drug Cartels - confirmed!

TheTownCrier has been warning this would happen for years! Our DHS, governor and hispandering politicians have chosen to ignore it....instead they cut water off to farmers!

Fire Investigators Determine Cause of La Brea Fire

Incident: La Brea Wildfire (84,150 acres, 25% contained)

Date: August 15, 2009


GOLETA, CA... A week-long investigation by U.S. Forest Service Special Agents, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit and Fire Investigators has revealed the cause of the La Brea Fire. Investigators revealed that the La Brea Fire was started by a cooking fire in a marijuana drug trafficking operation.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit has confirmed that the camp at the origin of the fire was an illegal marijuana operation believed to be run by a Mexican National Drug Organization. The Narcotics Unit has been working in the area within the last month eradicating other nearby marijuana cultivation sites.

Although the La Brea Fire started more than one week ago, there is evidence that the unburned marijuana garden area has been occupied within the last several days. The Narcotics Unit has secured the camp area which was located in remote and rugged terrain. It is also believed that the suspects are still within the San Rafael Wilderness trying to leave the area on foot. Officials warn not to approach anyone who looks suspicious but to instead contact the nearest law enforcement agency.[snip]

Don't fall for the "Healthcare" boondoggle!

You MUST hear this.... Yesterday Obama was seriously trying to give an example of why we must have this government insurance, that it will force insurance companies to be competitive..... And this is the example he that shoots down his entire theory that the government can make this idiocy work.

Video here:

Obama Offers Reassurance on Plan to Overhaul Health Care
New York Times - Helene Cooper, David Stout

“And he said a government-run public option should not kill private insurers, but rather force them to be more competitive, even going so far as to compare the competition between them toFedEx, UPS and the Postal Service. “UPS and FedEx are doing just fine,” Mr. Obama joked. “It’s the post office that’s always having problems.” (HE WAS NOT JOKING! He really thought he was making his case....some lawyer this guy is)

Roger Hedgecock played it earlier, and as he said,
“This President has a ‘disconnect’. “
[snip] Debunking the Lies from Barack Obama’s Town Hall Meeting
This President may have learned Chicago Politics well, but he’s really not that bright.

Here is another:
By Peter J. Smith
Obama Sells Health Care “Public Option” with Bankrupt Post Office Analogy

PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire, August 11, 2009 ( - President Barack Obama reassured Americans gathered at a town-hall style gathering in New Hampshire on Tuesday that a public-option in health care would not lead to the death of private insurance and rationing by telling them that private mail carriers, like UPS and Fed-Ex, have done just fine against the US Post Office. But comparing the government plan to a bankrupt postal service may not help a President who just slipped today under 50 percent approval in one poll.

“If you think about it, UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems,” Obama told a questioner, who expressed concern that the public option would run private insurers out of business. Obama said that the public option would have to pay for itself and not through tax-increases leveled on the middle-class.

However, the US Post Office is having serious problems lately and that analogy could raise alarms about the future of government run health-care. The Post Office, which does not raise revenue through taxes, faces a $7 billion loss for this fiscal year, and is slated to close approximately 700 or more offices across the country.


Government Medicine Kills

The U.K. and Canada prove it.
Look what you’re missing in the U.K.:

Breast cancer kills 25 percent of its American victims. In Great Britain, the Vatican of single-payer medicine, breast cancer extinguishes 46 percent of its targets.

Prostate cancer is fatal to 19 percent of its American patients. The National Center for Policy Analysis reports that it kills 57 percent of Britons it strikes.

Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development data show that the U.K.’s 2005 heart-attack fatality rate was 19.5 percent higher than America’s. This may correspond to angioplasties, which were only 21.3 percent as common there as here.

The U.K.’s National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) just announced plans to cut its 60,000 annual steroid injections for severe back-pain sufferers to just 3,000. This should save the government 33 million pounds (about $55 million). “The consequences of the NICE decision will be devastating for thousands of patients,” Dr. Jonathan Richardson of Bradford Hospitals Trust told London’s Daily Telegraph. “It will mean more people on opiates, which are addictive, and kill 2,000 a year. It will mean more people having spinal surgery, which is incredibly risky, and has a 50 per cent failure rate.”

“Seriously ill patients are being kept in ambulances outside hospitals for hours so NHS trusts do not miss Government targets,” Daniel Martin wrote last year in London’s Daily Mail. “Thousands of people a year are having to wait outside accident and emergency departments because trusts will not let them in until they can treat them within four hours, in line with a Labour [party] pledge. The hold-ups mean ambulances are not available to answer fresh 911 calls. Doctors warned last night that the practice of ‘patient-stacking’ was putting patients’ health at risk.”

Things don’t look much better up north, under Canadian socialized medicine.

Canada has one-third fewer doctors per capita than the OECD average. “The doctor shortage is a direct result of government rationing, since provinces intervened to restrict class sizes in major Canadian medical schools in the 1990s,” Dr. David Gratzer, a Canadian physician and Manhattan Institute scholar, told the U.S. House Ways & Means Committee on June 24. Some towns address the doctor dearth with lotteries in which citizens compete for rare medical appointments.

“In 2008, the average Canadian waited 17.3 weeks from the time his general practitioner referred him to a specialist until he actually received treatment,” Pacific Research Institute president Sally Pipes, a Canadian native, wrote in the July 2 Investor’s Business Daily. “That’s 86 percent longer than the wait in 1993, when the [Fraser] Institute first started quantifying the problem.”

Such sloth includes a median 9.7-week wait for an MRI exam, 31.7 weeks to see a neurosurgeon, and 36.7 weeks — nearly nine months — to visit an orthopedic surgeon.

Thus, Canadian supreme court justice Marie Deschamps wrote in her 2005 majority opinion in Chaoulli
v. Quebec, This case shows that delays in the public health care system are widespread, and that, in some cases, patients die as a result of waiting lists for public health care.”

Obamacare proponents might argue that their health reforms are neither British nor Canadian, but just modest adjustments to America’s system. This is false. The public option — for which Democrats lust — would fuel an elephantine $1.5 trillion overhaul of this life-and-death industry. Having Uncle Sam in the room while negotiating drug prices and hospital reimbursement rates will be like sitting beside Warren Buffett at an art auction. Guess who goes home with the goodies?

A public option is just the opening bid for eventual nationalization of American medicine. As House Banking Committee chairman Barney Frank (D., Mass.) told SinglepayerAction.Org on July 27: “The best way we’re going to get single payer, the only way, is to have a public option to demonstrate its strength and its power.”

Barack Obama seconds that emotion.

“I don’t think we’re going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately,” Obama told a March 24, 2007 Service Employees International Union health-care forum. “There’s going to be potentially some transition process. I can envision [single payer] a decade out or 15 years out or 20 years out.” As he told the AFL-CIO in 2003: “I happen to be a proponent of single-payer, universal health-care coverage. . . . That’s what I’d like to see.”

'Help pass Obama's health care reform! Earn $325-$550 per week!' KNOW THY ENEMY!

The American people are up against a very corrupt and dangerous political machine....WAKE UP! It is grass roots citizens showing up at these town hall meetings and the DNC, socialist left, Obama enforcers are being paid to confront them and intend to force bad legislation through at ANY cost. Just to name one, George Soros just gave them $5 MILLION for their effort!

The FIRST lie, is the word 'reform' is NOT reform! It is restructuring a society to suit 15 % of the population...the 15% that claims to need insurance coverage, a good percentage of those being illegal aliens. There are numerous ways to solve that problem and NONE of it is in this healthcare scheme. It would be MUCH cheaper to just subsidize the 15% instead of ALL of us having to join this mandated's a scheme, not reform! Medicare doesn't work. Half the doctors won't take a medicare patient, then you're left with the worst of the bunch for professionals. There is already rationing, the government can't run the programs it has now! This is none of the government's business except to prevent fraud....which they refuse to do because that is their game!

These ads are now all over the country.

Craigslist ads recruiting 'Obamacare' lobbyists
'Help pass Obama's health care reform! Earn $325-$550 per week!'

Amid accusations of insurance companies and the Republican Party deploying "Astroturf mobs" of health reform opponents, help wanted ads are appearing on Craigslist that offer to pay citizens between $9 and $16 an hour to lobby for the passage of Obama's health care.

The ads are being posted by the Fund for the Public Interest, which describes itself as "a national nonprofit organization working to increase the visibility, membership and political power of the nation's leading environmental and progressive groups."

Craigslist ads for Sacramento-area workers to "help pass Obama's plans"

One Sacramento Craig's List ad declares, "Help pass Obama's health care reform! Earn $325-$550 per week!"

It states:

Why is now the time to work for change?

Because we have a new president and new hope for a better America.

Because we need change like never before, on everything from the economy to climate change and more.

And because we know that the challenges we face, from ending our dependence on oil to winning the battle for equal rights, are huge – and the politicians and powerful interests who stupidly and stubbornly resist change aren't calling it quits anytime soon.

America's leading advocacy groups are gearing up to meet these challenges this summer. In order to win, they need citizen support and grassroots action. That's where we come in.

At the Fund for the Public Interest, we've been organizing campaigns to protect the environment, stand up for the public interest, and defend human rights for more than 25 years. We've helped cut global warming pollution with Environment America. And working with the Human Rights Campaign, we helped organize the grassroots opposition needed to defeat the discriminatory Federal Marriage Amendment.

Another Craigslist ad in San Francisco invited prospective applicants to "join motivated staff around the country working to make change happen."

"Now is our chance to make health care work," it states. "America's health care system is broken. Health care costs are spiraling out of control, throwing families, businesses and government into financial crisis. Families are worried their health coverage won't be there when they need it. Our country can't afford to wait for health reform that keeps costs down and protects consumers. We can't wait for affordable, dependable health care."

The same ad ran in the Craigslist Washington, D.C., section.

Similar ads were posted in Minneapolis, Minn., and Columbus, Ohio, sections.

Several blogs have noted that health care recruitment ads posted by the Fund for the Public Interest are springing up across the nation.

The Fund, listed as a top employer of college graduates, is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization exempt from some federal income taxes that is hired by other political non-profits, such as the Sierra Club, Human Rights Campaign, Greenpeace, state Public Interest Research Groups and Environment America. Workers conduct door-to-door campaigns, street fundraising and telephone campaigns.

A recent federal class action lawsuit brought by thousands of current and former canvassers charges that the organization has paid less than minimum wage and refused to pay overtime compensation to its canvassers who work the streets collecting signatures and donations.

The D.C. Writeup reports that the Fund for the Public Interest "shuts down offices without prior notice, and fires workers if they do not collect enough donations."

According to the report, "The Fund has also been accused of facilitating voter fraud. In the summer of 2008, three people working for the Community Voters Project, which was affiliated with the Fund, were accused of filing fake voter applications in Virginia. The three found names from telephone directories and then, with made up Social Security numbers and birth dates, submitted the forms to election registrars."

According to its website, the Fund for the Public Interest has been hiring summer workers for door-to-door and street canvassing campaigns in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.

A December 2007 report posted on The Hill reveals that then-Sen. Obama announced a plan to "get more Americans to participate in public service, including the establishment of a Craigslist-like online network for volunteers."

"Loving your country shouldn't just mean watching fireworks on the Fourth of July; loving your country must mean accepting your responsibility to do your part to change it," Obama said. "And if you do stand up, I promise you that your life will be richer, and our country will be stronger."

As WND reported, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., accused attendees at health care town hall meetings of being part of an "Astroturf" movement, saying she didn't believe the angry constituents represented a legitimate grass roots opposition – and the Democratic National Committee called citizens "angry mobs" who are "seeking to destroy Obama."

Obama's own 2008 political campaign, merged with the Democratic National Committee in January and now known as Organizing for America, is also calling on Obama supporters to show up at local representatives' offices to show support for health reform.

"As you've probably seen in the news, special interest attack groups are stirring up partisan mobs with lies about health reform, and it's getting ugly," a letter from Organizing for America states. "Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can't let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand."

The group even offers to provide "information to drop off about how the health care crisis affects your state (with the option of adding your personal story)" and "a step-by-step guide" for pushing health "reform" at district offices.

The 'Pins', Useful idiots of the 19th Century

HEADLINE: Aug. 10, 2009 - Senate Committee Apologizes to All Native Americans for Violence and Maltreatment by U.S. Citizens-
The Senate Committee on Indian Affairs passed a resolution by voice vote last week apologizing "on behalf of American people" to all Indian tribes for the mistreatment and violence by American citizens.


The Pins, Useful idiots of the 19th Century

History repeats itself, over and over, and over and over we seem to not learn.

What follows is a perfect microcosm of our current political life.

Cherokee Tribe, No. Georgia, c. 1830 - all one ‘tribe’ , right?

About a third of the tribe became ‘civilized’ in the late 1700’s/early 1800’s, becoming Christian, educated, aristocratic, prosperous. The other two thirds progressed, embraced the Church, but remained ignorant and more entrenched in ‘traditional’ ways and jealous of their more successful neighbors.

I won’t go into the historic events of the Trail of Tears, Indian Removal, or Andrew Jackson. The Cherokee Tribe did as much to destroy itself, as any of those events or people did.

An ambitious, soon to be proven power hungry man was elected as ‘Chief’ under a Constitutional government of Executive, Legislative and judicial branches,
along with a few simple laws that were easily understood and executed.

As the tribe fractured over the question of progress and forced or voluntary Indian Removal, alliances and factions grew more antagonistic. The poor, uneducated masses were easily bribed with power, money, status, whatever and were urged to distrust the ‘others’, the leaders of their tribe who had brought them all to prosperity and peace.

First public discourse became scarce, either through intimidation or by ‘vote’. Then the executive, proclaiming an emergency, canceled the next election and set himself up as a dictator for the next 35 years. The Chief convinced the people to ‘hold out’....that the US would not remove them, that somehow ‘he’ would save them, if they just ignored the inevitable.

And ignore it, they did, as they watched one family after another being moved to stockades, being moved at bayonet point out of their homes....not huts, but modern homes of the time, much better than the white settlers. Thousands of them died, and ALL of them suffered.

But did they blame the Chief? The Chief had their ear and their allegiance as he fed their misery and hate. Why would they blame him? But they had to blame someone and they became organized in their hate as they became militant with insignias of crossed swords, and became known as, “The Pins”. The ‘others’, the third who tried to save the tribe, but were not allowed to have voice or representation, were known as the “Ridge Party”.

Silencing them was not enough. Doing everything the way the Chief and the ‘tribe’ wanted to do it, was not enough. Now the ‘Pins’ wanted blood. In 1839, they assassinated Major Ridge, his son John and Elias Boudinot. Over the next few years, they killed anyone they could associate with the Ridge Party, one of them my grgruncle.

Some of the Ridge party who survived were forced from Indian Territory for years rather than face more death. They bought land and settled in Texas and called their settlement “Mt. Tabor”, near other Cherokees who had settled there decades before. They were ‘safe’ but they had no voice in their government, either tribal or USA.

The killings went on for years and the story of what happened to them all after they returned to Indian Territory is fascinating, but the message of this story is about power, and ignorance and greed and how one does not survive without the other. The ‘Pins’ were just useful idiots molded to keep the power hungry, in power. The Pins loyalty to the Chief was not in their actions unlike the SEIU, AARP, La Raza, ACORN enforcers of today. They will bully, bribe, silence the opposition for Obama's phoney healthcare plan, rig the census, whatever bad legislation is pushed. It’s ALL about what’s in it for THEM.

Most Native American tribes today are, sadly, ‘Pins’...... demanding apologies like all the other special interest group minority ‘victims’, lining up for a handout to trade favors with the politicians.

This ‘declaration’ by the senate stating WE apologize, is speaking for all of us without our representation. No one alive today owes any ‘Indian’ alive today ANYTHING. They simply use their dead ancestors, the real victims, to get something they want but aren’t responsible enough to get for themselves.

Neither my Cherokee blood, nor my Irish blood, nor my Scottish blood apologizes for one damn thing. Our blood has already been spent for this country for 3 centuries.

Shame on you,

Sam Brownback (R-Kan.)Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Tim Johnson (D-S.D.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.),Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.).

Democrats show their colors...NOT Red, White & Blue!

The DNC calls the right to assemble and objection to OBAMA socialism "GOP MOB RULE" in their latest advertisement, "Enough of the MOB"

See it here:

Sean Hannity (8/5/09) just played this new advertisement targeting anyone protesting Obama healthcare. He was as distressed by it as much as I was. It is some nasty, vile propaganda. They want you SILENT....they call us MOBS....but they sure didn't call the Millions of foreign nationals marching in our streets demanding we change our laws to suit THEM a mob! But they are the latest voting constituency of the Democrat party, so it's OK!

These are some dangerous people. They will say ANYTHING! The RNC didn't do squat! The people had to do it! The democrats KNOW this is a grass roots movement by republican, independents and democrats! THEY KNOW and they aren't going to tolerate it! Even squishy middle moderate republicans can be reasoned with, and eventually most of them, finally, GET IT! Democrats are BORN democrats...special interest groups...gays, blacks, hispanics, AARP (not working so well today - the old folks are wakin' up!), unions, abortion business, eviro whacko investors like Al Gore.....that makes up the Democrat party...they go along with each other for their vested interest. They could care less about the Constitution and "We the people". They will never get it!

For you morons who keep supporting the policies provided by Obama and his Democrat henchmen, THIS is what a mob looks like! And YOU want to give them AMNESTY!

April 10, 2006: In the streets of Dallas, Texas, a human tidal wave surged through the streets. The immense crowd carrying the Mexican flag and placards featuring the likeness of Cuban Marxist terrorist Che Guevara--estimated to be at least 100,000 strong, with other estimates running as high as 500,000 --shuffled at times and surged at other times toward city hall, yelling insults and throwing bottles of water at those few counter-protestors brave enough to confront the seething throng. The counter-protestors quickly evaporated when police indicated they couldn't guarantee ...

HOW SOON we forget!!!

April 28th, 2003, Hillary Clinton.

HILLARY: (screeching) I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, "WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!"

Read the transcript of this disgusting DNC advertisement here:

In case you haven't heard, Obama wants your neighbors to turn you in if you object to his policies!
  • White House: Snitch on People Who Oppose Pro-Abortion Health Care Bills Editor ^ | August 5, 2009 | Steven Ertelt
    The White House is not happy with the millions of Americans who oppose the pro-abortion government-run health care plan Congress is considering. In a new post on the White House web site, Obama Administration officials ask people to become tattletales on groups and people who oppose the health care bill.[snip]
Liberal useful idiots, Go here to snitch!!!

"Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an e-mail or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to," the Obama web site says.

This is for real!!! WAKE UP PEOPLE!


TheTownCrier Disclaimer: For you folks that write me whining about the republicans being as bad as the democrats....I AM NOT a republican. If you had read any of this blog, you would see I take the republicans to task about 3 times more often than democrats. SOME republicans CAN be reasoned with.
Some of them are just like the democrats....wolves in sheep's clothing. At this point in history, the democrats have more wolves than the GOP. That's all....
and you're a FOOL if you don't question this kind of POWER!
