Glenn Beck Interview With Eric Massa A Waste Of Time

UPDATE:  An ethics investigation and subsequent charges have been dropped against Massa.  Hmmm…you don’t suppose that is why he backed off and backtracked do you?  Or was it just that he did not have the goods?

Yesterday, Glenn Beck spoke on his radio show about an interview planned for his television show yesterday evening with Rep. Eric Massa.  He explained that it would be an hour long interview and that he had no idea what Massa would reveal on the show about corruption in Washington and his recent resignation over sexual harrassment charges from a male staffer.  All I could think was why would anyone spend an hour airtime on this Washington scum.  We are the better for this guy stepping down.  Much has been made of Massa being a no vote on ObamaCare, but it was not because he has principles.  The bill is not Marxist enough for him because the public option was not included.

Michelle Malkin agreed with my accessment as well and she spoke on Glenn’s show yesterday defending the idea that this was a waste of time and that Glenn should not give him an hour on television.  Glenn and Michelle debated back and forth and then after a pause Glenn said, “I don’t understand you people.”  Michelle was clearly not happy about that and neither was I.  Glenn eventually apologized to her.  Ed Morrissey has video and comments on this here.  I continue to wonder what is going on with Glenn.  Is his fame and power going to his head?  He regularly attacks those on the same side as himself and made inferrances yesterday about attacks he has received after his CPAC speech.  So basically Glenn is going after those of us who realize that our only option in 2010 is to take back the Republican Party.  He seems to think that this is an endorsement od the GOP, which it is not.  Most of us conservatives go after Republicans more harshly than people on the left.  The problem with Glenn is that he attacks us for this plan while offering none of his own.  He merely thinks educating the masses will make a difference, but if there is no action, we simply have an American population living under tyranny and realizing what that means.

After watching the interview on Glenn’s show, it would seem that Michelle and I were right with our criticism.  Glenn actually apologized at the end of the show for wasting America’s time, which I know is legitimate because Glenn prides himself on giving us quality programming.  Massa was evasive and backtracking.  After three days of claiming that he was forced out of office, he told Glenn that he was not forced out and that he takes responsiblity for his bad behavior.  The revelations of corruption and backroom dealings were not revealed.  Massa appeared to only be interested in saving his political career as Michelle indicated in her comments to Glenn on his show.  Apparently, Glenn got the big ratings he expected from this interview, but not much else.  I hope he did not give Massa an hour simply for ratings.

Nancy Pelosi Wants ObamaCare To Pass So We Know What Is In It

PlastiGirl has put on her old thinking cap to generate some new ideas to help her get the votes she needs to pass ObamaCare.  Obviously, she does not have the votes needed right now even though she claims that she does or they would have passed the Senate bill through the House in order to avoid reconciliation.  Today, Plasti delivered a speech at the 2010 Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties (NACo). This year marks the 75th anniversary of the organization.

She started her comments with, “Your common responsibilities bring you to Washington with a common cause: to strengthen the partnership between America’s counties and the federal government.  It is in that spirit that I have come here today.  It’s in that spirit that we will work together to, as your theme says, to ‘find solutions in tough times.”  Somehow I do not feel comfortable with Plasti suggesting that the federal government should be walking arm in arm with local government.  Our local government is the area where we can affect the most change in order to get government intrusion out of our lives.

PlastiGirl reminded those who were listening, whom it was that started this Progressive Movement in America by saying, “As you are in Washington this week, we stand at the doorstep of history, ready to realize a centuries old dream, started by a Republican President, Teddy Roosevelt.  He was the one who started this country thinking in this direction, and we are deeply in his debt.  But, we are a hundred years late.”  She went on to relate that Teddy wanted universal healthcare.  She then made this preposterous claim, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”  WHAT!?  They have to pass the bill so we know what is in it?!  I thought they have been telling us for a year what is in this legislation.  Who has ever heard of passing a bill so we can actually she what is in that bill? 

She continued with more of the insanity, “Furthermore, we believe that health care reform, again I said at the beginning of my remarks, that we sent the three pillars that the President’s economic stabilization and job creation initiatives were education and innovation—innovation begins in the classroom—clean energy and climate, addressing the climate issues in an innovative way to keep us number one and competitive in the world with the new technology, and the third, first among equals I may say, is health care, health insurance reform.  Health insurance reform is about jobs.  This legislation alone will create 4 million jobs, about 400,000 jobs very soon.”  Excuse me?  This piece of crap tax and spend bill is going to create 4 million jobs?!  This is the first time I have ever heard that claim and I would love to know exactly how that is going to happen.  The government will be driving insurance companies into the ground, which will be job loss.  Doctors will get out of the practice because of the impossible regulations and lack of payments: more job loss.

Then she went on to talk about the courage that will be needed to pass this legislation.  That has been her theme lately.  Courage was needed to pass Social Security and MediCare.  Courage will be needed to set up the infrastructure for government healthcare.  Any person with a brain knows that socialism does not require courage, it requires a desire to control.

Rednecks And Science Collide On The Freedom’s Wings Show

The prevalent thought in the world is that environmentalism belongs to the left and that individuals who are anti-statist, conservative, libertarian and do not believe in the hype around man-made global warming, do not care about the earth and the inhabitants (including animals) of that planet.  That is simply not true.  I myself was a Wildlife Biology major when I started college, I have always recycled, I love nature and hiking and I support the idea that we need to conserve and use alternative energy.  I just do not think that the government is allowed to intrude into my life and force me to do that and tax me accordingly.

Tuesday, March 9th, I will be joined by two fellow Blog Talk Radio hosts, Mark and Guy who host the Green T Hour.  The description of their show is “where science and rednecks collide.”  Guy is the Science and Mark is the Redneck and the show is an eclectic blend of sustainable living and renewable energy in real life applications for the common person, economic insight, political impact, personal experiences and much more.  You can check out their show here and there website here.  We will discuss a variety of topics dealing with Cap & Trade, carbon credits, the green industry, Smart Grid, alternative energy and government intrusion in our lives including the renewal of the Patriot Act by President Obama.

Join us here for an entertaining and informative show at 6pm ET.

9/11 Truther Takes Aim At Pentagon

And he misses.  John Patrick Bedell walked into the Pentagon yesterday wearing a business suit and surprised police when the cell phone they thought he was reaching for turned out to be a gun.  Bedell grazed two of the police officers before bring shot in the head.  He later died of his wounds.  The question is about motive and we may never know, but there are clues via the internet.

Bedell appears to be a 9/11 Truther.  While I believe that it is appropriate to still have questions about the events surrounding 9/11, Bedell was certifiably a Troofer.  The reason I say this is because he believed the preposterous theory that the World Trade Center and a nearby building (WTC 7) were demolished.  The idea that the government that cannot run the post office was able to pull off rigging the buildings and demolishing them successfully without anyone involved breathing a word about it, is just plain wacky.

His resentments over those events and anger at the military are supposedly the reasons why he decided to commence this attack.  The mainstream media will waste no time trying to link him to the Tea Party Movement just as the man who crashed his plane into the Texas IRS building was initially linked to the Movement. 

Alex Jones’ website Prison Planet, has released a posting this morning questioning whether this incident is another conspiracy due to its proximity with a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center that more attacks from extremists were expected.  Paul Joseph Watson writes, “Such incidents will dovetail perfectly with the rapid advancement of cybersecurity and Internet censorship laws that will force people to obtain licenses to exercise free speech on the web, while providing Homeland Security with the perfect pretext to increase surveillance of all Internet traffic and communications.”  I actually believe that argument holds no water because my common sense brain believes that the government loves for people to express these kinds of whacked out theories, like 9/11 was a demolition, because it furthers their argument that concerned citizens like myself are dangerous extremists.

The real truth here is that Bedell is a lunatic, plain and simple regardless of his conspiracy theory beliefs.  What we will see happen is people on the left paint him as a right wing extremist, while people on the right will paint him as a Moon Landing denier.  Both of these attitudes are wrong.  While some conspiracy theories are crazy, like denial of the moon landing, others are legitimate.  I do wonder why big international groups meet secretly.  I do wonder if the government is ruining our economy on purpose.  And yes, I do wonder if Lee Harvey Oswald acted of his own accord or if he was a hired hitman to take down a president who wanted our money backed by silver and hated Communism.  I have many questions about the Federal Reserve. 

Thankfully, Bedell is a horrible shot or too high on the marijuana he loved and so no one was murdered.

President Obama Pulls The Nuclear Option

For a man that has promised that he will dismantle our nuclear weapon program, Obama seems to have an affinity for the nuclear option.  Okay, so I’m not talking about a real nuclear warhead and a real nuclear winter, but ObamaCare unleashed on this country is pretty darn close.  Today, the President delivered yet another address about his plans for health insurance reform.  This message was suppose to inform us that the President had embraced the good ideas of the Republicans and would be including them in his plan.  But that is not what I heard today.  I heard the Illustrious One call on the Democrats to charge forward without the Republicans and get ObamaCare through with reconciliation.

The President made this clear as he stood in the White House surrounded by the photo-op placed doctors donning their white jackets.  He said, “We have debated this issue thoroughly, not just for the past year but for decades.  Reform has already passed the House with a majority.  It has already passed the Senate with a supermajority of 60 votes.  And now it deserves the same kind of up or down vote that was cast on welfare reform, that was cast on the Children’s Health Insurance Program, that was used for COBRA health coverage for the unemployed, and, by the way, for both Bush tax cuts — all of which had to pass Congress with nothing more than a simple majority.”  There it is, the nuclear option.  The President also called on the three people, outside of Washington D.C. and the unions, that support ObamaCare to get out like the tea partiers and make their support known by saying, ” And I urge every American who wants this reform to make their voice heard as well — every family, every business, every patient, every doctor, every nurse, every physician’s assistant.  Make your voice heard.”

Obama has not noticed that the overwhelming voice of We The People has spoken.  We do not want his reform, which is actually a tax and spend bill.  We do not want government intrusion in our lives.  It does not matter how often the President promises that he does not “believe we should give government bureaucrats or insurance company bureaucrats more control over health care in America.  I believe it’s time to give the American people more control over their health care and their health insurance.”  We know that the only reason the government would power forward with this legislation that has little support is for nefarious reasons.  The government desires to build the infrastructure for government insurance. 

How reconciliation will work is that the House and Senate pass a concurrent resolution, which I assume will have the President’s changes.  This resolution instructs one or more committees to report changes to the legislation by a certain set date.  Those committees send their reports to the budget committeee, which combines them into a single omnibus bill. In the Senate, the reconciliation bill then gets only 20 hours of debate before the final vote. This means the bill only needs 51 Senators to vote in support of the legislation.

If this gets through, the country will never be the same.  It will be a form of nuclear winter.

IMF Continues Call For Global Currency

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), announced last week that the IMF is preparing to one day heed the call for a global reserve currency to take the place of the dollar.  This is worrisome considering that the Euro, which used to do better than the dollar, is tanking in Europe.  Strauss-Kahn in a speech said, “That day has not yet come, but I think it is intellectually healthy to explore these kinds of ideas now.”  The IMF has already moved to using a basket of currencies and plans to use that same method of special drawing rights to set up a global currency.  Last year, both China and Russia called for a move away from the dollar and Vladimir Putin even carried around a coin that he referred to as a new global currency. 

The nations of the world were locked together in a global economy after World War II to prevent a future world war.  Thus, whenever one country starts to falter, every country is affected.  The IMF was formed in 1944 at this time to oversee this global financial system. The IMF has grown from 45 original members to 186 countries.  One person’s idea of a global system to prevent war is another person’s way of implementing a new world order after a global economic collapse.

If you think that a global currency is far off in the distant future, than it is time to wake up.  There are organizations like the Single Global Currency Organization that are already pushing for a global currency to meet the demands of a global economy.  Their website states, ” The Single Global Currency Association was incorporated in June, 2003 in the U.S. State of Maine.  Morrison Bonpasse is the first President of the Association, with his term running through 2015.   He publicly declared his support for the Single Global Currency during his campaign for State Representative in 2002.” 

Paul Volcker, former Federal Reserve Chairman, actually made that statement for the need of a global currency.  Keep in mind that Volcker is the Chariman of President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board.  The systematic dismantling of America’s free market system by the government makes it very apparent that there is an effort to push the world into an economic emergency that would birth a new global currency.  And what better to run a global currency, than a global government?
