Why Are The Feds Collecting GPS Coordinates of Every House In America?

This story was first broken by Eric Dondero over at the Libertarian Republican blog.

Now there is video proof that, yes indeed, the Census Bureau is getting the GPS coordinates of every American home.

What could this information possibly be needed for? The purpose of the Census Bureau is to tally the number of people living in a congressional district for redistricting purposes. This practice of GPS marking homes is a gross violation of privacy in the very least. At the very most it is something that could be used to easily categorize and track any possible "type" of American as the Government sees fit. GPS coordinates can also be used for military purposes but that is something too horrible to even think about.

Obama Administration Refusing To Close Borders In Midst of Pandemic

During tonight's Presidential press conference, which is probably still airing now I just got too irritated to watch any more of it, President Obama addressed the issue of closing the Mexican border with the intentions of slowing the spread of the swine flu virus.

“I have consulted with our public health officials extensively…. At this point they have not recommended a border closing.... It would be akin to closing the barn door after the horses are out because we already have cases here in the United States.”

The key to keeping Americans safe, he says, is “great vigilance” and that “everybody responds appropriately when cases do come up, and individual families start taking precautions that make a difference.” He repeats what he said at the beginning: “It sounds trivial, but it makes a huge difference.” That is: wash hands, cover mouth, stay home if sick.

I find it funny that American families are being urged to use common sense and precautions when it comes to staying healthy, but our government is refusing to do so for our safety. Americans are told to "stay home if sick" but Mexicans are allowed to come and go across our borders as they please.

Common sense would tell me that if I wanted to stay healthy, and keep my family healthy, and a sick person came knocking at my door, I would think twice before I would let them run around my house coughing.

No Mr. President, this situation is not akin to "closing the barn door after the horses are already out". Closing the borders would be akin to closing the barn door before MORE horses get out. I don't know how common sense eludes Obama so. If you want to fix a flooded basement, you have to fix the leaky pipe before you pump out the water and re-do the walls.

Obama's Latest Teleprompter Gaffe

This guy can't even form a coherent thought without the words right in front of him. This was an address to the scientific community about the swine flu outbreak.

Pat Toomey's Response to Specter's Defection

APRIL 28, 2009: “Senator Specter’s decision is in keeping with his record. He is more at home in the Democratic Party than the Republican Party. That has been true for decades, not just true today.

In recent weeks, Senator Specter has made numerous statements about how important it is to deny Democrats the 60th seat in the U.S. Senate and how he categorically intended to remain a Republican to prevent one-party dominance in Washington.

What Pennsylvanians must now ask themselves is whether Senator Specter is in fact devoted to any principle other than his own reelection.”

The Best Pelosi Parody Ever...

...seriously. The best ever. Like in the history of the world.

Arlen Specter Officially Switching to Democrat Party. Peace Out Specter! Don't Let The Door Hit You

Finally! Considering that he was a Republican only on paper for the last 15 years at least, this surprises no one. In fact, many in the Republican party are glad to see him go. Real Republicans are looking to purge the party of official leaders who are nothing more than big spending, money sucking quasi Republicans. Thank you Mr. Specter for making our job a bit easier!

There is already speculation that Specter made the switch so that he would actually stand a chance of getting re-elected as Pennsylvania senator in 2010. Specter's performance in very preliminary polls for the GOP primary were consistantly down against Libertarian Republican Pat Toomey, for CEO of The Club For Growth. According to The Washington Post, Pennsylvania has only one Democrat officially in the running for the 2010 senate opening so far. That would be Joe Torsella, former head of The National Constitution Center.

Polls closed Monday April 27 indicated that Toomey was leading Specter in the primary by 21 points

Andrew Lloyd Webber Going Conservative?

The renowned braodway composer Andrew Lloyd Webber spoke out against Britian's socialism today in what could be construed as a word of warning to the U.S:

I am 61 years old. I have lived and worked in Britain all my life. Not even in the dark days of penal Labour taxation in the Seventies did I have any intention of leaving the country of my birth.

Despite a rumour put around some years back, I have never contemplated leaving Britain for tax reasons. But in the 40-plus years I have been lucky enough to work here, I’ve seen a bit. So I must draw your attention to what is really proposed in this Budget.

Here’s the truth. The proposed top rate of income tax is not 50 per cent. It is 50 per cent plus 1.5 per cent national insurance paid by employees plus 13.3 per cent paid by employers. That’s not 50 per cent. Two years from now, Britain will have the highest tax rate on earned income of any developed country.

I write this article because I fear the inevitable exodus of the talent that can dig us out of the hole we find ourselves in. It is inevitable, given that other countries are bidding for entrepreneurs. The Government must modify its proposals

Biggest Liberal Tool Ever Attacks Moderates and Demands Liberal Students To Stifle Free Speech

Gawd! I almost have no words to describe how infuriated this video makes me.

Who does this dude think he is to attack not only right wingers, but modderates. Then to demand that people that don't agree with him must be shut down unless they "chart the liberal course". "Solidarity yes"? Really? Solidarity means anyone not agreeing with you be shut down? This dude is a tool!

What A Surprise! Henrietta Hughes Is Still Jobless Despite Begging Obama For Help

CNN is reporting that Henrietta Hughes, the woman the pleaded for help because she and her son have been living out of a car at a Obama speech in Fort Meyers, Florida in February, still has not found a job and may soon be kicked out of her free house.

"Now Hughes says time is running out. The home she lives in was donated by the wife of a Florida lawmaker. Once the house sells, Hughes will have to leave.

Hughes worries that she could end up living in her car again"

But as Michelle Malkin had reported in February, and the MSM never seemed to have touched on, Henrietta Hughes has been on the Government dole and begging for freebies since 2004 when Henrietta's son took advantage of a doctor's hospitality and got himself some free medical care.

And according to the blog Riehlworld, the Hughes' have been living in public housing since 1983!

Maybe what this revelation of Hughes still not being able to pull herself up by her boot straps shows us, is that Government assistance does not help! 37 years of having someone else provide for Henrietta has gotten her nothing. Of course this revelation will become the face of "we aren't doing enough" in the MSM. But they wouldn't dare tell you the whole story.

CNN Condemns Perez Hilton's Remarks. No Mention Of Garafalo Though

CNN may have finally gotten something right. They have strongly condemned blogger Perez Hilton for making sexist, nasty comments towards Miss California.

Now if only we can get a condemnation of Janeane Garafalo's classist rant against teapartiers. Rome wasn't built in a day though.

Young Americans Losing Support For Democrats

According to a new survey by CNN, Americans are slowly losing support for the Democrat party.

"Forty-nine percent of people questioned this month in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. national survey say the country is better off with the Democrats controlling Congress. That's down 7 points from January, but it's 15 points higher than the 34 percent who say the nation would be better with the Republicans running Capitol Hill."

It's only 3 months into the new administration and support is already dropping quickly. What's even more surprising, and encouraging, is that Congress is losing support very quickly in the under 35 demographic.

"Most of the Democrats' loss of support has come among younger Americans," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "In January, two-thirds of those under the age of 35 said Democratic control of Congress was good for the country. Now that figure is down to 48 percent."

Democrats are still drastically beating Republicans in the field of bi-partisan cooperation. Sixty two percent of those surveyed feel that Democrats are cooperating with Republicans, while only 37% feel the same way about Republicans.

CNN"s Susan Roesgen Gets Schooled About The Teaparties

CNN has been working feverishly to get this video removed from YouTube so hopefully by the time you click the play button, they have not succeeded in getting this one removed yet. Remember Susan Roesgen at the Chicago Teaparty? Well here is some unaired footage of her getting taken to school by an angry protester. The protester name is Kathy Barkulus and she was very polite and rational and really drove her point home.

Kathy Barkulus 0-12!

Welcome To Recession. Population: Everyone

This is a very simplistic, but very true, explanation of how taxation during a recession hurts everyone. This video was made by a Ron Paul supporter and Campaign For Liberty member. Check it out and forward it to your obama-bot friends (we know they aren't the brightest bulbs in the box)

CNN "Reporter" All Bent Out Of Shape Over Obama Protest, Called Bush Hitler in 2006

Watch this video. You can clearly see this supposed "journalist" has her panties all twisted up over the fact the HER president is not loved by everyone.

She actually says "Do you realize how offensive that is", because a man has a picture of Obama with a Hitler mustache. Really Susan Roesgen? Do you remember what you said about President Bush back in January of 2006? When you called a protester who was wearing a Bush mask with a Hitler mustache and Satan horns a George Bush look alike?

From the original Newsbusters article dated January 13, 2006:
Does President Bush resemble Adolf Hitler and Satan? That seemed to be the implication during the 9am half hour of CNN's American Morning. A protester wearing a George W. Bush mask, complete with a colored in Hitler-esque mustache and red horns attached to the forehead was deemed a Bush "look-alike" by reporter Susan Roesgen.

I remember that clearly. And now with Susan Roesgen making her liberal bias known to the world and embarrassing CNN in the process, CNN can no longer wonder why their ratings keep falling.

Libertarian Republican Pat Toomey Officially Announces PA Senate Bid

Well, the rumors can now come to an end. They started out with the rumblings that Pat Toomey, former Club For Growth CEO, would make a run for PA governor in 2010. Then when Arlen Spector delivered that kick in the face to conservatives everywhere by voting yes to the stimulus, rumors started flying that Toomey would challenge him for his Senate seat.

Today Pat Toomey officially announced his bid for Senator. He has launched an official campaign website and is taking donations and volunteer information to start his fight against the closet liberal Arlen Spector.

In a video on his site he explains exactly why we need him as a Senator. ""We can stop the bailouts and the spending stampede; we can reduce the burdens on taxpayers; and we can unlock the ingenuity and job creation potential of our great nation once again," Toomey said in his remarks. "I am running for the U.S. Senate because I believe the economic stakes for our country have never been higher. The people of Pennsylvania deserve the very best from their leaders in Washington – but that's not what they are receiving."

I agree Pat. We need you.

Will the Left Try and Incite Violence At The Teaparties?

So we have all seen the report that came out today from The Department of Homeland Security categorizing the immediate threat of "the radical right". The report comes out very timely, the eve of the planned tea party protests.

As I'm sure you're all well aware the left has feverishly been trying to talk down the tea parties and chastise their participants. We've seen all kinds of things pop up over the weekend. Rachel Maddow laughing at us on MSNBC, reporting that the tea parties are funded by Fox news or, better yet, Exxon. How did they come up with Exxon anyway?

But now we are seeing the left quickly trying to organize counter-protests at the same locations where tea parties are scheduled. Code Pink is highlighting their Santa Monica counter protest on their website:
The Santa Monica Tea Party of 2009 and Tea Parties all across America are being organized by friends of Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly, all about getting less funding for government. Let's show up with a better message: STOP funding wars and Wall Street, and start funding the needs of the people-- health care, education, and a green economy. Join us as we crash their party.

Santa Monica Pier
100 Colorado Ave.
Santa Monica, CA

Then we see the plan for sabotage at The Daily Kos:
Tomorrow, my husband and I will be venturing into the wilds disguised as a news crew to do some in person interviewers with teabaggers here in [State Redacted] (if we can find any). We've got some questions lined up to ask, but I'd love to get suggestions!

tedshubris's diary :: ::
The great thing about owning professional video equipment is that armed with it, you can pass yourself off as being a professional news crew pretty easily.

So tomorrow, [Fake Station Name Redacted] is going to send a cameraman and on air news personality out into the field to cover this "teabagging" phenomenon.

We're going to ask open ended questions that seem to have a slight conservative bent to (hopefully) get them to open up and just start ranting. Then, we take any examples of racism, hatred, ignorance, and stupidity that we catch on camera and make a little movie out of it. Probably a YouTube special.

Here's the list we have so far

* What are you celebrating (The Boston Tea Party), and can you explain its historical relevance? [We're hoping to get some hilarious flubs from this one]

* Is this your first time teabagging? [OK, so, a juvenile one, but worth it] (apparently, we're the only ones who have connected tea parties to teabagging. Or, for that matter, the sociological study "Tearoom trade". Removed for the sake of keeping covert)

* Do you approve of Michael Steele's plan to expand the GOP through a "hip-hop urban-suburban marketing strategy"? [hoping to get some juicy racist stuff from this question]

* (as an intentional misunderstanding/follow up, presuming that someone complains about wasteful government spending) "So you disapprove of your tax dollars going to the Iraq War?" [should elicit some confusion]

* Do you approve of the direction in which this country is headed? [With thanks to Bob Love]

Anyways, it's a start... but I'd love to have some suggestions for questions that sound fine, but should prompt an outpouring of crazy.

Thanks in advance, and I'll be sure to post a link to the finished video when it's available!

Makes me wonder for a second just what else the lefties may have up their sleeve. If they want to incite people to be racist, what's stopping them from inciting violence?

Anyone attending a tea party tomorrow be careful. I would put nothing past those lefty loons.

Rachel Maddow Thinks A Conservative Citizen's Right To Organize Is Mockable

So according to Maddow a group of citizens who wish to organize and protest against what they say is bad judgement by the government is worthy of being mocked? Yes Rachel, conservatives get the pun. In fact, WE PLANNED IT THAT WAY! It's catchy isn't it? So Maddow, thanks for getting the word out about our planned rallies and maybe clueing a few people in that, yes, conservatives do have a sense of humor.

However, I think Maddow misses the point. The tax day protest is not the doing of the Republican party. It is the doing of concerned Conservative minded citizens (Republican, Libertarian and even some moderate Democrats) who want to send a message to our ENTIRE government that we are no longer going to put up with it. Everyone in Washington needs to pay attention no matter what letter is after their name. That's probably why Michael Steele was told not to speak at the event. It's not a political party's rally. It is OUR rally.

I'm thinking of designing a "Tea bag Maddow" shirt. Who's interested?

Tax Facts That Will Make Your Head Explode!

This is a great video put out by

Hey California! The Government Is Coming For Your New Big Screen TV!

The Orange County Register reports that in an attempt to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, the California Energy Commission is considering banning the sale of big-screen TV sets that don't meet new, higher energy efficiency standards. Critics say the news standards could take 25 percent of televisions, most 40 inches or larger sets, off the market.

By 2011, the commission wants all large-screen TVs to use 33 percent less power. By 2013, sets must consume 49 percent less power. The Sacramento bureaucrats say the regulations will reduce global warming and save consumers $18 to $30 a year.

Considering that most manufacturers already work to meet voluntary Energy Star standards, it is questionable how much more state agencies can demand from manufacturers without forcing them to pass on these added costs to consumers, which means more expensive TVs.

And as Steve Titch at Reason points out:
There is also a huge question about how such a law would be enforced. Many California consumers would simply choose to purchase non-compliant TVs on the Internet, or drive to stores in nearby Nevada, Arizona or Oregon. As a result, local California-based retailers, who provide jobs and income to state residents, stand to lose the most from the ban.

Obama Adminstration.. Looking Into Climate Engineering?!?!

From The AP:
The president's new science adviser said Wednesday that global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth's air.

John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month that the idea of geoengineering the climate is being discussed. One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays. Holdren said such an experimental measure would only be used as a last resort.

"It's got to be looked at," he said. "We don't have the luxury of taking any approach off the table."

Holdren outlined several "tipping points" involving global warming that could be fast approaching. Once such milestones are reached, such as complete loss of summer sea ice in the Arctic, it increases chances of "really intolerable consequences," he said.

Twice in a half-hour interview, Holdren compared global warming to being "in a car with bad brakes driving toward a cliff in the fog."

At first, Holdren characterized the potential need to technologically tinker with the climate as just his personal view. However, he went on to say he has raised it in administration discussions.

Holdren, a 65-year-old physicist, is far from alone in taking geoengineering more seriously. The National Academy of Science is making climate tinkering the subject of its first workshop in its new multidiscipline climate challenges program. The British parliament has also discussed the idea.

The American Meteorological Society is crafting a policy statement on geoengineering that says "it is prudent to consider geoengineering's potential, to understand its limits and to avoid rash deployment."

Last week, Princeton scientist Robert Socolow told the National Academy that geoengineering should be an available option in case climate worsens dramatically.

But Holdren noted that shooting particles into the air — making an artificial volcano as one Nobel laureate has suggested — could have grave side effects and would not completely solve all the problems from soaring greenhouse gas emissions. So such actions could not be taken lightly, he said.

Still, "we might get desperate enough to want to use it," he added.

Another geoengineering option he mentioned was the use of so-called artificial trees to suck carbon dioxide — the chief human-caused greenhouse gas — out of the air and store it. At first that seemed prohibitively expensive, but a re-examination of the approach shows it might be less costly, he said.

Please tell me that I'm not the only one scratching my head at this ridiculousness? So basically what Mr. Holdren is telling us is that the only way too correct something that supposedly men destroyed by taking it for granted, is too take it even more for granted and think that we can control it? This makes just about as much sense as thinking you can triple the budget deficit but reduce the national debt. Or that when a nation is broke, they should spend their way back to prosperity.

Barney Frank Goes Ape On a Harvard Student Asking a Tough Question

Wow. Barney Frank proves that a democrat's only effective strategy when being asked a question they don't want to answer is to attack the questioner and accuse them of being unfair. Go cry some more Barney.

If you are having trouble viewing the video on my site, you can go to Sevenload to see it.

Campaign For Liberty Member Detained In St. Louis Gets It All On Tape

Campaign For Liberty member Steve Bierfeldt was detained by the TSA after supposedly "acting suspiciously" and carrying too much cash on him in a St. Louis airport. He was carrying $4700 in checks and some cash all meant to be contributed to the Campaign For Liberty. Luckily, Steve caught it all on audio.

The Left Trying To Steal Our Teaparty Thunder

From Michelle Malkin:

So, in addition to preemptive smears and sabotage efforts, the Left’s nutroots — feeling, well, left out of the spotlight after putting the Obamessiah in office — are organizing their own anti-Tea Party demonstrations.

Liberal guru Joe Trippi and government-subsidized Bill Moyers are pushing the new initiative, titled “A New Way Forward.” Hey, wasn’t Obama supposed to be your New Way Forward? Way to go!

The lefties have chosen April 11 to try and usurp media attention from the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party event on April 15. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I should note: If even one of those protesters is truly sincere about opposing government bailouts of private industries and truly sincere about ending government support for crony pesudo-capitalists at Fannie/Freddie and truly sincere about letting failing banks fail, I say: Welcome to the club.

The rest is all nutroots Kabuki theater.

You can already guess how the national media will treat the two competing demonstrations. Tens of thousands of tax revolters = radio silence. A few dozen ACORN/ANSWER stragglers in from of any given bank = front page news.

No matter.

Get out there. Mobilize. Put your local and state officials and your members of Congress on notice.
They’re your true audience. Not the MSM.

Senate Introduces Another Bill That Would Permanently Ban Offshore Drilling

In just another nail in the coffin of American's hopes to someday become energy dependent, Senator Robert Menedez (D-NJ) has just introduced a bill to the senate that would permanently ban offshore drilling on almost all of the Atlantic continental shelf.

The bill specifically states that drilling should be banned in the mid and north atlantic areas of the continental shelf. That would bann drilling from anywhere between Georgia and Maine.

With the cap and trade of fossil fuels coming, and the lack of insight into the benefits of nuclear power, American citizens are having their energy choices taken away one by one.

Nanny State At Work: A Record Number Of American's Are Now Collecting Food Stamps

In a piece that shows just how well the nanny state mentality is working in America, Caroline Hedley of The Telegraph showcases just how dependent Americans have become on the government.

Ten percent of Americans are now collecting food stamps and that number is expected to keep rising in the upcoming months as unemployment is also slated to rise.

As part of the massive stimulus package that was passed in February there will also be a rise in food stamp funding by 13%.

One has to wonder if that 13%, would have been better used being sunk into tax cuts or job creation that would actually lead people back to work and being able to provide for themselves. I can not comprehend how "stimulating" it is to provide more people with free food, when what they really want is jobs.

You Might Be A Democrat...

First off, I would like to apologize for the following corny joke. I try to keep my blog above the fray but I am in a particularly good mood today, saw this joke and thought it was funny. So now I am using my "oh so serious" news blog, to share it with you! Enjoy!

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man.

"How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist.

"How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it's my fault."
