Republic Wireless-$10 a month

Well you can't beat $10 a month for all the calls and texts you like, no contract but that is exactly what Republic Wireless does. If you want ALL the bells and whistles it will cost you $25 a month! The only drawback is you MUST buy one of THEIR phones. The new Moto G phones are out and are on sale for $149 for a short time only. These phones run on WiFi and Sprint's cellular backbone when there isn't any WiFi available and will transfer from 1 to the other seamlessly.  We just bought 2 and will let you know how they work! Using MY banner-link below, we both save a bit.

Is the US Crying out for help?

I suggest ALL Americans read this by Judi McLeod of the Canada Free Press:

America’s cry for help lost in the White Noise

Back in the salad days of President Barack Obama in the Oval Office, the first sign of the coming soft tyranny against We the People should have been the roughly 2000 car dealerships forced out of business by the anti-free enterprise cabal squatting on the White House.
It was Obama’s auto task force that pressed General Motors and Chrysler to close scores of dealerships without adequately considering the jobs that would be lost or having a firm idea of the cost savings that would be achieved, an audit of the process has concluded.” (The New York Times, July 18, 2010).
This was the first visible social engineering adventure of the Obama regime and tens of thousands of jobs were lost as a result.
Back then today’s low information voters were identified as ‘The Gullible’ or ‘The Naive’, who believed that TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) of the Treasury Department was all about an idiotic concept known as “too big to fail”.
During the days of the TARP goose-step march through car dealerships,  a complacent G.M. informed more than 2,000 dealers that some or all of their franchise agreements would not be renewed in October 2010.  Chrysler eliminated 789 dealers, or about a quarter of its network, with less than one month’s notice.
“Out of work!” was about to become America’s main mantra, a mantra that continues to the present day.
According to the Times, the Treasury Department—which started the raid on car dealerships—failed to monitor the wrecking ball process.
There were cries of outrage from all sides in a rushing white noise, some more sincere than others.
Representative Darrell Isaa, outspoken Republican of California, rallied: “This sobering report should serve as a wake-up call as to the implications of politically orchestrated bailouts and how putting decisions about private enterprise in the hands of political appointees and bureaucrats can lead to costly and unintended consequences”.
Problem is that the sobering report did not serve as a wake-up call.
It’s four years later and now it is known that the IRS, has been using its power to put people out of business, purportedly unknown to the president until he “read it in the newspapers”.
Republicans Mike Kelly (PA-03) and Jim Renacci (OH-16) are circulating a letter requesting Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to release documents detailing the process and methodology the Automotive Task Force used to shut down General Motors dealerships in 2009 during the automotive industry crisis.
They’re more than four years too late.
Massive government intrusion into an already recession-bound private sector will never be resolved by letters to other politicians sent out by politicians.  It won’t be stopped by pleading letters from constituents to impervious congressmen who just want to go along to get along.  It won’t even be stopped as a result of bold, well-meaning statements by Darrell Issa.
If there is one thing all should have learned since 2009 it is that nothing is changing to relieve America from the clear and present danger that is Barack Hussein Obama.
No matter the talking heads, no matter the media, no matter the wailing politicians making pretty speeches, the Obama regime forges ahead, killing off all individual rights and freedoms in its obsession for the Fundamental Transformation of America.
Every new outrage from the regime falls into the same pattern.  Panel debates by televised talking heads, politicians of all political stripes registering their outrage, sound bites of Obama’s droning voice played over and over again, ad nauseum.
No matter what Obama and the collectivists do, it seems there are no new member’s bills, no discernible line of action other than white noise, and talk, talk, talk.
Tyranny, the same kind that kept the people of the former Soviet Union and environs in the stranglehold of communism for 70 years, is making its way—unhampered—through the USA.
The Obama administration started off by identifying Tea Partiers, returning war vets and Christians as terrorists—and got away with it.
Now news reporters like James Rosen, a Fox News correspondent has been openly branded a “possible criminal co-conspirator” for his alleged role in publishing sensitive security information.
The only difference between soft tyranny and hard tyrannies is that in the latter, those deemed enemies of the state are jailed and killed.  But a cursory read through history teaches that hard tyrannies usually got their start as soft ones.
Intensifying the clear and present danger in the current prolific White House scandals is the propaganda surrounding them.
For instance,  White House spokesman Jay Carney claims that no one is more outraged at the IRS scandal than President Obama.
The only outrage seen from Obama these past four and a half years is the one he fosters for America.
And now anger has its own color according to a study due to be released in July which contends that White Americans are more likely to see Obama as angry than non-white Americans.( May 20, 2013)
Meanwhile, America is crying out for rescue and it’s time to replace the white noise dominated by grandstanding politicians with the legal means to halt the Fundamental Transformation of America before there is nothing American left to save.

YOUR Social Security

Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500. Read that again. Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny? We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and I that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government. Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back. If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98.
If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
Another thing with me.... I have two deceased husbands who died in their 50's, (one was 51 and the other one was 59 before one percent of their social security could be drawn. I worked all my life and am drawing 100% on my own social security). Their S.S. money will never have one cent drawn from what they paid into S.S. all their lives.
Entitlement my foot, I paid cash for my social security insurance! Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!
Remember Congressional benefits? --- free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days. Now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?
We're "broke" and we can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless. Yet in the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile and Turkey. And now Pakistan......home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!  And they can't help our own citizens in New York and New Jersey!
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed S.S. income' receive no additional federal aid nor do they get any financial breaks, while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of billions of $$ and tons of food to foreign countries!
They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it's time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.
Sad isn't it?

A horrendous switch

This is what has happened all over Europe and Canada and it is coming to the USA faster than you can imagine!

The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15. 2011. It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe - and to the rest of the world.
By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez
"I walked down the street in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz ...We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, and talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world.
These are the people we burned.
And under the pretence of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.
They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.
And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.
What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.. A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves. Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.
It is now more than sixty years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, and beaten, experimented on and humiliated.' Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

obama's failed green dream

You the taxpayers are on the hook for BILLIONS of dollars and counting because of obama's dismal failure in the move from a petroleum based infrastructure to one of windmills and mirrors. In fact it is smoke and mirrors when it comes to his diatribes.The fact is that if you were to level every state in the lower 48, leaving only California and fill all that land with solar and windmills, you would still not produce enough power to keep California running.

Americans and Californians in particular need to get a grip on reality. Reality is not a concept. If you think that if the whole country went magically green overnight that it would even make a dent in the flawed theory of global warming, you are more than a few tree's short of a forest! With Chindia [China & India] building 1 coal burning plant a week EACH, there is not a chance! 
Whats more, with the failure of the Fukashima nuclear power plant disaster in Japan, it sent shock-waves around the world to the point that several countries, including Japan have decided to call it quits and go nuclear free. 

Germany and other European countries have passed laws that close down their reactors over the next decade or so. Some of you might welcome this, but they have to be replaced with something to make up the severe shortage of power they will experience. Do you have any idea what they are building, again, to make up that huge deficit of electricity? Well it doesn't spin, absorb or reflect. It IS black, abundant and very cheap.....yep you guessed it, COAL! On average it takes 10 coal burning plants to reach the same capacity of 1 nuclear plant and there are hundreds of nuclear power plants dotted all over Europe and Japan. 

Unlike Americans, they realize that going green, won't even make up 5% of the electricity they have become accustomed to. Do you people have ANY ideas that will make up the 95% you have just taken off line? NO, of course you don't.

I would luv to take all you green thumb, tree hugging imbeciles aside and strip you of all the things that you so verbosely espouse to! Lets see, we will start with your cell phones and vehicles, then cut you off the grid and leave you with your beloved windmills and mirrors,[nope, they too took energy and mining to produce] an axe to chop wood [oops, no, can't cut down trees] so you better find something for warmth and cooking...well you can see where this is going. At this rate you better PRAY for global warming or start WALKING to the tropics and live on coconuts. 

Do you still not see how absurd your cries of insane demands are? No you don't. You never will, but you will carry on with your outrageous hypocritical rants and still seem to think you have some semblance of credibility! You are a joke to anyone with a grade 3 education or higher with the exception of union run schools from whence you came. 

When are we going to hear what YOUR fantastic ideas YOU have on keeping this planet running without using ANYTHING you say you hate so much? Grow up and try and do something productive with your lives that might HELP others instead of trying to take away things that most of us luv and realistically, can't live without!

Texas-The newest Country

The Country of Texas ~ being that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union . (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

We Texans love y'all, but we'll probably have to take action if Barack Obama wins the election. We'll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, and Texas secedes from the Union in summer of 2013.

2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas . You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we hadn't had another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

1. NASA is just south of Houston , Texas . We will control the space industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States .

3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don't know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need, and it's too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm....

6. Computer Industry - we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor,Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care - We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employees over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of
Texas , Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University
of Dallas , University of Houston , Baylor, UNT ( University of North
Texas ), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway. 

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn't restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas , it's a Right toWork State and, therefore, it's every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don't like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers. 

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don't need any food.

13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States , and twenty- three of the 100 largest cities in the United States , are located inTexas. And Texas also has more land than California , New York , New Jersey , Connecticut , Delaware , Hawaii , Massachusetts , Maryland , Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are located in Texas .

15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don't need to. You see, nothing rusts in 
Texas, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for decades.

This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and don't have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama: Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg SUV.The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won't have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications. You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough
 heat from Global Warming. 

The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about!

JW Sues Fed for Records Detailing U.S. Taxpayer Bailout of European Banks

Why on Earth is our government sending billions upon billions of dollars overseas to bail out European banks?

That question is at the center of a new Judicial Watch investigation as we 
continue our effortto force the Obama administration to come clean on all aspects of the ongoing bailouts - which began five years ago and, despite what some politicians may tell you, never really ended. 

On Tuesday we sued the Board of Governors for the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), a committee within the Federal Reserve, for records detailing the Fed's December 2011 taxpayer-funded bailouts of European Banks.
But wait a moment...

Didn't Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke sayin a December 14, 2011, meeting with Senate Republicans that he lacked the authority to use taxpayer dollars to bail out troubled European banks? Yes, he reportedly did just that.

However, a "currency swap" program extended by the Fed on November 30, 2011, led to nearly $95 billion in loans to the European Central Bank in December 2011 alone.

Let's take a look at how this "swap" works.

Under what is known as a "temporary U.S. dollar liquidity swap arrangement," the Fed lends U.S. dollars to foreign central banks which then auction these dollars off to their local banks. The Fed's stated intent for initiating the program was to ease lending for European banks during the financial crisis.

The Fed initiated the program in December 2007 and allowed it to expire in February 2010. In May 2010, the Fed rebooted the program and on November 30, 2011, extended it through February 1, 2013. This extension prompted a sharp increase from $400 million to $95 billion in loans in December 2011.

How is this different from any other run-of-the-mill bailout? It isn't. And that's why we want to uncover as many details as possible about why these swaps are taking place and under what circumstances.

On January 3, 2012, we submitted Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests seeking communications between the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, the FOMC, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the European Central Bank related to the November 30, 2011, currency swap extension. We also want access to records describing the justification for extending the currency swap program, as well as individual details regarding each swap transaction.

Moreover, given that little information is available to the public regarding the identities of the recipients of currency swap funds, Judicial Watch also seeks, "any and all records identifying, describing, or setting forth the identity of any bank or financial institution and the collateral offered by the bank or financial institution," between December 5, 2011, through December 31, 2011.

Here's why this last request is important, per Bloomberg:
For all the transparency forced on the Federal Reserve by Congress and the courts, one of the central bank's emergency-lending programs remains so secretive that names of borrowers may be hidden from the Fed itself.

As part of a currency-swap plan active from 2007 to 2010 and revived to fight the European debt crisis, the Fed lends dollars to other central banks, which auction them to local commercial banks...While the transactions with other central banks are all disclosed, the Fed doesn't track where the dollars ultimately end up, and European officials don't share borrowers' identities outside the continent.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York reports that, as of March 31, the European Central Bank had $33 billion in outstanding swaps. The secrecy of these arrangements has beencriticized by Gerald O'Driscoll, a former Vice President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, as "bailing out European banks and, indirectly, spendthrift European governments. It is difficult to count the number of things wrong with this arrangement."

Regarding our basic FOIA request, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the FOMC can't say it was "lost in the mail." The stonewalling is intentional. Both entities acknowledged receipt of our records request on January 3, 2012, and were required by law to respond by February 1, 2012. However, as of the date of Judicial Watch's lawsuit, neither defendant has submitted a lawful response to Judicial Watch's original FOIA request.

Chairman Bernanke can dress it up in whatever language he chooses, but these "currency swaps" are nothing more than massive bailouts of European banks. That we have to sue to get basic information about this massive bailout speaks volumes about the dubious nature of this under-the-radar program.

But this secrecy is not altogether surprising considering that we have had to sue the "super transparent" Obama administration for records related to the bailout/government takeover of U.S. companies. At this point, with trillions of dollars now committed to this Big Government takeover of the private sector, we still do not have any answers regarding the legal justification used to authorize the bailouts.

No Congress voted to bail out Europe. And no president, let alone this one, signed a law authorizing such a bailout. From the beginning, the bailouts have been marked by contempt for the rule of law.  And, now, with a massive secret bailout of "Europe" underway, there seems to be no controlling legal authority for our nation's central bank and the politicians who refuse to seriously police the Fed's activities. Judicial Watch aims to change that and bring sunlight and the rule of law to this out-of-control government operation.

From Judicial Watch, which we fully support here.
