Obama reneges on his oath of office
America is under siege by its own president. Every official action by President Obama has diminished the country in some fashion or manner. The nation’s cultural identity has been wiped away by grossly misdirected Executive Orders and left of the left legislation. Worse, the President has betrayed the very people who elevated him to the Oval Office. With no intent to carry out the Presidential Oath, sworn during two inaugural events, Obama has crippled the nation’s institutions, industries and international efforts. The following is the contents of the oath he pushed aside for a darker agenda. “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_office_of_the_President_of_the_United_States Evidence is crystal clear Obama has overstepped his constitutional authority. Worse he has fraudulently used his authorities to enable those external to the borders of the United States to threaten this nation’s sovereignty.
Consequences of Administrative policies can be viewed in the amassed toll they have taken on this nation. With the swipe of a pen our southern border disappeared. Poorly managed withdrawal of troops from the Middle East helped to give birth to ISIS. Obama’s hate for the military is so profound he ordered its dismemberment leaving the nation vulnerable to attack. The federal Attorney General’s office has been used to divide the races and circumvent established law. Blatant misuse of federal funds, deepening the nation’s debt by trillions, swamps future generations with enormous pay backs. A lame Congress has not checked Obama’s advances on our society. They sit on their hands as he continues his chaotic mismanagement of this nation. Time has come to rein in Obama’s assault on society. Any other person who previously held this office would have been brought before Congress with the portent of impeachment as an outcome. Disgustingly weak men and women inhabit the halls of the legislative branch of government. America can no longer afford the luxury of time as the country falls further into the pit of depravity. The nation is waiting for action from the new Congress. Let us hope the fire that brought them into power still exists, if not we will be in for rough waters ahead. http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/immigration/item/18554-obama-opens-borders-releases-illegal-immigrants-into-u-s
Expanded war powers: history repeats itself
Echoes of the 1930s are reverberating through Congress today because President Obama made a request for expansive war powers. http://www.news9.com/story/28067347/obama-to-send-his-new-war-powers-request-to-capitol-hill Memories of Americans may be shallow yet 82 years ago a request for expanded powers came from a little known leader in Germany. Under the Enabling Act the German leader was granted plenary powers. Invested Hitler was the ability to make laws by-passing the Reichstag, the German equivalent of Congress. Obama has already usurped Congressional authority with unconstitutional Executive Orders. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enabling_Act_of_1933 If Obama’s requested authorization is enacted there would be no geographical, political or technical boundaries which would be off limits to him. Many of the President’s requests to Congress have been to expand his authority at the expense of Civil Liberties. Most recently the FCC has proposed wide ranging controls on an internet that is now free to all users. Once his war powers request is enacted Obama could make the case to shut down the media, bring more foreigners to American soil and even reconfigure the economy. History is fraught with examples.
President Obama’s inability to conduct foreign affairs, on a level befitting an American head of state, is evident across a wide range of actions he initiated. In each case his mismanagement was so gross the outcomes were exponentially worse than anyone expected. From the Arab Spring to the assault on Americans in Benghazi Obama has clearly demonstrated a profound ineptitude to protect this country’s interests abroad. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_Spring
Further, he has displayed a propensity to side with groups whose ambitions are not in the best interests of the United States. Handing a person, such as described here, expansive war powers can be deleterious to a nation that has fallen behind the rest of the international community in power and prestige. Americans have forgotten their history from a few generations ago. Present day America is not the country millions have fought and died for. President Obama’s war powers should be restricted allowing those whose countries have been invaded to fight their own battles. Open ended conflict, as Obama proposes, may be the ticket he has been looking for to further decimate the rights of Americans. Perhaps one person in Congress will have the wherewithal to question Obama’s true motives, as many in the conservative media already have.
Maryland Legislature: time for a change
Maryland’s legislators may have not received the memo: there is a new sheriff in town. Larry Hogan became the Governor because people are sick and tired of being taxed into oblivion. Legislative leadership has firmly come out against Hogan’s mild proposals to trim taxes in a variety of areas. Before Hogan would finish his State of the State message consternation was already brewing on the new Governor’s programs to help businesses. Hogan enumerated a list of changes he wants the Maryland Legislature to consider. His proposal to exempt the first $10,000 of personal property from taxes would go a long way to help small businesses. Elimination of the “Rain Tax,” which targets only a portion of Maryland, was also echoed in his speech. Automatic increases in gasoline taxes would come to a thundering halt because Hogan portrays them as regressive assessments. Pensions for military, police and fire fighters would become exempt from tax collection by the Comptroller’s office. House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas Miller are in a near schizophrenic frenzy over Hogan’s tax proposals. Just the thought of reducing Maryland’s tax burden on its citizens brought verbal backlashes from both of them. What these two do not understand is Marylanders who pay the bills want change. Hogan has chosen not to cut too deeply for his first State budget. Instead he began by cutting around the edges. Maryland’s nickname, The Free State, has taken on new meaning around the country. Why? People have come by the tens of thousands to obtain freebies allocated to them by the Democrats and Hogan’s predecessor Martin O’Malley. Billions in waste could be cut from the Maryland budget. Hogan is fully cognizant of the economic Armageddon that would occur if he cut too quickly. Yet this must happen for Maryland to stay sound economically. The Mercedes Benz gang with Medicaid cards should watch their backs. The new sheriff is gunning for you.

ET finally phones home
Government finally releases thousands of documents from their secret ET files. Under the umbrella for several investigatory units (Project Blue Book, Project Sign and Project Grudge) the United States Military researched UFO sightings from 1947 to 1969. The results of these recently declassified investigations are now available to review on several online data bases. Much credit should go to John Greenewald who papered the government with Freedom of Information requests over several decades. His Black Vault website is a treasure trove of information for those looking to see what ET has been up to over the decades. Military officials claim they found no significant threat to national security by these aerial phenomena. http://fox13now.com/2015/01/20/air-force-releases-files-on-ufo-investigations-now-available-online/ Many of these sightings go unexplained by the researchers who had firsthand knowledge of these occurrences.
Exponential data has since accumulated by various groups around the globe on aerial phenomena of unknown origin. Masters of engineering and technology have examined videos of craft that accelerate to Mach 10 and greater then stop on a literal dime. Many of these sighting display flying abilities that present technology would not allow. Turning rapidly at right angles, stopping in midair after super speed accelerations, abilities to hover then dart away in the blink of an eye remain mysteries to those on the forefront of aviation technological abilities. Government leads us to believe extraterrestrials do not exist. Disinformation campaigns by the very people who generated initial knowledge on this subject have been uncovered over the years. Why the subterfuge if the general belief is ET has not come to our doorstep. British authorities have released their equivalent of Project Blue which also has a multitude of unexplained sightings. http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ufos/ Some involved with the field of unexplained aerial phenomena have a belief, yet to be proved, that our little green friends or maybe blue have already contacted political entities on this planet. They point to the rapid acceleration of cell and computer technologies as one indication we are not alone in the universe. Sadly governments have lied to the public on an array of subjects over the years. Credibility of their voices in this area is very thin. Sooner or later the truth will come out. When it does humans will move into a whole new universe of ideas, technologies and how we view life on a scale little thought of previously.
Embers of Patriotism Rekindled
American Sniper hit a chord with a wide range of the public since its release. A resurgence of patriotic rhetoric was on display across much of social media as millions viewed a film disparaged by the left. Harmonious to those of us who always believed in the American Spirit, the movie made an impact on many quietly sitting on the sidelines waiting for the central nightmare to come to an end. Patriotism has been adrift in the caustic winds emanating from Washington which is doing its best to create a third rate America. Both at home and on the international front this country is no longer considered first rate in a wide spectrum of categories. Leadership has abandoned its post as minions of deceit hide their true agenda utilizing deceptive methods to keep the hierarchy afloat and the nation down. Tantamount to the broad cover up that surrounded the Nixon Administration, in the days of Watergate, there are a dozen of Obamagates waiting to be uncovered. Our reigning head of state continues to be absent on issues of substance which would strengthen the nation. Chris Kyle, American Sniper’s hero, has rekindled loyalties to a nation whose strengths are drawn from its people not the ash of a lost Democracy. Awakening from a deep sleep a national pride is returning to the front pages of American thought. Finally people are realizing we are our own worst enemy. Following the trail of deviance delivered by a narcissistic President flawed rationale has turned this country over to internationals whose ultimate goal is to dismember our nation. A smiling Chief Executive can be viewed bowing to chiefs in the Middle East as he apologizes for not moving quick enough on his destructive programs. America will never be secure as long as its people are made insecure by those who want to rebuild the nation from the ground up. America does not need to be rebirthed. Instead it must hold those responsible for bringing this nation to its knees. American Sniper displays that millions want the country reignited to its former glory. They see this nation is worth saving though its present political dynamos don’t. Embers of patriotism are being rekindled throughout this great nation regardless of the left who have exploited it for the green in their pockets. Nothing the present leadership can do will stop the forward positive forces we are seeing as patriotism takes hold again in a nation some thought was lost in the woods. The challenge now is to keep the fires burning before dark forces once again smother the flames. Collectively we will win back America which was temporarily sidelined by a historical deviance that should never be repeated.

Death on Demand: a physician’s role in assisted suicide
Maryland Board of Physicians recent revocation of a physician’s license for assisting in the suicides of his patients was the correct decision. Physicians are neither trained nor licensed to take life. Death on demand is not the physician’s role in society. Euthanasia has been a controversial subject for decades. Government officials have not had the backbone to generate a regulatory structure to terminate the lives of those suffering extreme illnesses. I watched my own mother die a horrible death from a cancer that literally engulfed her body from inside out in the 1970s. No one brought up the subject of euthanizing her because we all knew it was morally and professionally wrong. Yet the debate on pulling the plug continues from that time forward without a resolution in sight. Self-appointed Kevorkians empower themselves, utilizing creative methodologies, to bring a life to a finite point. Dr. Lawrence Egbert’s empathetic actions, may have been well intentioned, though inconsistent with his licensed authority and his moral obligation to his patients. Many across the gamut of the health professions have the knowledge to take life but few have acted in any perverse manner in this direction. Regulating authorities are not without compassion for those who have a brief period left on Earth. In Maryland and across the nation euthanasia has been debated to the nth degree moving no closer to a solution than our considerations 40 years ago. http://www.wjla.com/articles/2014/12/maryland-doctor-lawrence-egbert-accused-of-assisting-suicide-loses-license-110188.html
The question who lives and who dies received a slight lift from the legislative effort called the Affordable Care Act. Stories emanating from various sources indicate those facing catastrophic illnesses starting in their mid-seventies will not have access to cutting edge therapies. Why? Government entities are refusing to pay for them. A patient with metastatic cancer was recently told by a major university hospital in the region that chemotherapy costs would not be reimbursed because of his age. Death panels no, but cost panels yes. Is the government in a sense directing physicians to withhold therapies making them responsible for the outcomes, it seems so. Taken to a higher degree are physicians being forced to be stewards of death without their consent? Again, it seems so. Society must determine the appropriate circumstances in which one can bring his or her life to an end in the face of a terminal illness. Physicians must not take it upon themselves or be forced to decide when a life should terminate. I realize many have heard these words before. Unfortunately they have not penetrated the minds of some. The debate on a physician’s role in end of life planning should take place in an open forum for all to hear. Under no circumstances should a physician act in the shadows, playing the part of “Death,” no matter how empathetic he or she is with patients in his or her care.
