Obama’s Latest Land Grab

Obama designates national monument in LA area

SAN DIMAS, California (AP) – President Barack Obama on Friday spared from future development nearly 350,000 acres of land within the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles, a move that cheered environmentalists but sparked new criticism of Obama’s willingness to use his executive authority.

Obama used his authority under the federal Antiquities Act to turn the area into a national monument. He cited President Abraham Lincoln’s decision to preserve parts of the Yosemite Valley without ever having seen it as inspiration for steps he’s taken in office to preserve more than 3 million acres of public lands.

“And I’m not finished,” Obama said, making the announcement at Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park, where picturesque views of the San Gabriel Mountains under blue sky provided the backdrop. “We are looking at additional opportunities to preserve federal lands and waters, and I’ll continue to do so, especially where communities are speaking up.”

Supporters say Obama’s move will provide recreational opportunities for millions of people, particularly minorities and children, who live in Los Angeles County. The county is one of the most disadvantaged areas in terms of access to open space, according to the White House.

“For Angelenos, the San Gabriels are like having Yellowstone next door,” said Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council. “Now the 17 million people living in Greater Los Angeles can find wild beauty right in their backyards.”

Local officials and some lawmakers faulted Obama for acting without support from Congress or the public, but Obama said officials heard from a lot of urban families who said this area constituted their only outdoor space and that their children didn’t have parks.

Officials also expressed concerns about potential use restrictions on the hundreds of thousands of acres that will be forever preserved.

“Once again this administration is taking unilateral action without congressional or public input,” said House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. “I strongly support multiple use of our national forests and other public lands, but this decision severely limits usage.”

Since taking office, Obama has created or expanded 13 national monuments across the country, including Friday’s action.

Just last month, he created the world’s largest marine preserve by expanding the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument in the south-central Pacific Ocean.

Obama has designated nearly three times more land and water than any other president since Congress first passed the Antiquities Act in 1906, according to the White House.

America’s Fading Glory

picture-of-american-eagle-and-flag-4

As many of you know I came very close to shutting down this Voting American Blog.  Had it not been for the encouragement of my Patriot Friends across the internet Voting American would have faded into the abyss of Apathy.

It is incredibly disheartening to watch as this once great country succumbs to the will of those who would ‘Fundamentally Transform’ her into a Socialist Government dependency State. A place where the ‘Land of the Free’ would become the land of the Government Slave.

I spent a great deal of time over the past few days scouring over some of the over 800 articles here at Voting American and came across this eye opening commentary submitted by Loopyloo on February 10, 2012:

058c27cf4d9faa50502289fcde18322fGovernment intimidation is getting stronger everyday. The bullying is outrageous and the implication that those who speak up for their country and their faith are somehow anti-American or wish for the destruction of the country is so far from the truth, that if it weren’t being said by those who do wish to destroy the country, it would be hard to believe. But that is a tactic of those who follow the Alinsky path. Accuse others of doing what you are doing in order to divert attention from your own actions.

God bless and watch over all those willing to stand and speak up for this country. God bless all those who want to restore the principles that this country was founded on. God bless all those who understand the Christian foundations that our Constitution was established on. God bless those who understand the freedoms we have and the cost of those who have fought and died to save them. God bless everyone who is willing to stand for what is right. If we do not stand now, we may never have the opportunity again, and we will have given away this country to those who hate her.

God bless American and may she remain standing as the greatest country on the face of the earth.

Loopyloo

After reading that commentary from Loopyloo and reading all the words of encouragement coming from my Patriot Friends I could no longer even consider the option of shutting down this Voting American site.

Where have all the Patriots Gone?

the_patriot_2000_film_benjamin_fights_tavingtonIt seems we have lost so many on fire Patriots these past few months and one has to wonder what could have happened to that burning desire to restore these United States of America.

America is at a Cross Roads and I fear that if this trend continues we will lose all that we have fought for these past five or so years.

Perhaps some have given up while others may have simply lost their will?

I hope this is not the case but if it is then I wish each and everyone of you well as you pursue those things that bring meaning to your lives.

Only in America…

11930_657491270966259_1878318259776284953_n

1. Only in America… could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

2. Only in America… could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black. 12% of the population is black.

3. Only in America… could we have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

4. Only in America… can we have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

5. Only in America… would we make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just become American citizens.

6. Only in America… could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”

7. Only in America… could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check, fly on an airplane or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

8. Only in America… could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

9. Only in America… could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a trillion dollars more than it has per year for total spending of $7 million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

10. Only in America… could the rich people who pay 86% of all income taxes be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

b9440aefe84e5dbd089a91e9d1d06d76A thought from this article: Only in America: we will have the chance to throw out most of these politicians who support this liberal trash and elect people to represent us and work according to Constitutional guidelines.
In 2016, we can bring our country back. We must act now, before it is too late. Obama had done more damage than any other leader.

Happy Days Are Gone Again

There is a grave threat in the White House. If he is not thrown out or otherwise constrained in the near future, national security will inevitably become a top priority for Americans, forced by tragedy, not just to give up “piña coladas and getting caught in the rain,” but to survive a Dark Age into which their president led them. (No Mr. President, You are the ‘Serious Threat to Everybody’s Future’)

“I think this is an administration that, we’re coming to find out, is one of almost unimaginable incompetence…” – Brit Hume

“Obama is not worse than we thought. Liberals are worse than we thought.” – Christopher Chantrill

It’s fortunate for both our enemies and the Democrats (terms no longer mutually exclusive) that the average American has the attention span of a geriatric squirrel. Otherwise he or she might recall the fall of Saigon in ’75 and the killing fields of Cambodia — fiascoes likewise made possible by the Party of Cut and Run.

That the party of Harry Truman and John Kennedy has degenerated into a home for wayward socialists — Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton — is tragic; that the American people grant such odious scoundrels sanctuary in the nation’s capitol is bewildering; that they elevated a security risk like Barry Soetoro, AKA Barry Soebarkah, AKA Barack Obama to the highest office in the land is a downright travesty.

The current President of the United States is a man with a past murkier than a cup of Turkish coffee; a man who serves an ideology as red as an oozing tomato; a man who heads the most corrupt and lawless gang of miscreants to come out of Chicago since Prohibition. And he’s either the most incompetent individual to ever rest his bony keister on the Presidential seal, or he’s the most treacherous. And no one seems to care.

“It doesn’t matter a whit what’s going on with the popularity of the president. He may lose the Senate, but he is governing without the Congress. He has got his — he has got his own Constitution that he is operating under. He now regulates the entire healthcare system. And the story that was missed among all the scandals that are supposedly undoing his presidency is the climate change regulations. This is all by regulation. Nothing in legislation. He doesn’t need the Congress, which is going to revolutionize and put control of U.S. energy, which is the U.S. economy, in the Environmental Protection Agency. You want to run America? Don’t run for the presidency. Get yourself appointed head of the E.P.A. It makes Stalin’s five-year plans look like a picnic…

(Is the Obama administration finished?)

POLICE STATE USA

Revealed: Obama policy to use military against citizens

Pentagon directive outlines presidential authority

1940017_791758964186399_1426092954_n

Americans concerned over the buildup of military-style units within non-security-related federal agencies – specifically Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams – are having those concerns confirmed.

A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities reveals what critics say is a policy that outlines the potential use of military force against Americans by the Obama administration, reports the Washington Times.

While the document – signed by then-Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn – contains standard provisions on support to civilian emergency services, special events and domestic use of the Army Corps of Engineers, it also outlines presidential authority for use of military weapons and personnel against Americans during times of domestic unrest.

“This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” a defense official opposed to the directive told the Times.

540147_527427273974974_1779034061_n

“Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality,” marshals the terrifying evidence to show the world of Big Brother is much closer than we want to admit.

Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” issued Dec. 29, 2010, provides “emergency authority” to U.S. commanders.

“Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,” the directive states.

“Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions.”

“In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” under two conditions.

  • Military support required “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.”
  • When federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”

The military is authorized to provide assistance in the form of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft to engage civilians.

While the use of unarmed drones is specifically mentioned, “use of armed [unmanned aircraft systems] is not authorized,” the directive states.

579279_621911077869025_113843147_n

Among the federal agenicies with SWAT teams are the the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Education Department.

During the recent standoff between armed Bureau of Land Management agents and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, the administration considered deploying military force under the Directive No. 3025.18 but ultimately rejected the idea.

So now the Patriots and the men and women that have served this Country and currently may have their children serving in the Armed Forces are probably worried about their future.

We are manning the gates and the watchtowers.

The enemy within is obvious to US.

It appears that it resides in the White House.

What a shame!

The commander in chief is supposed to be the one that eliminates the threats to our Country, not the one who exacerbates the chaos that is being forced upon US.

The congress is supposed to restrict the president from becoming a dictator.

Has the congress failed in their duty to the American People ?

Has the president failed in his duty to the American People ?

Has the Supreme Court failed in interpreting the Constitution of the United States ?

Barack Obama is a dictator, prove me wrong, I am open for discussion on that subject.

How did we get here ?

382124_443361355726828_283418650_n

What happened to the

American Spirit ?

Is the ignorance that exists in this Country as far as government control a reflection of where we are or where we are going ?

The elegance of the American Spirit is still intact, and it will always be what we will depend on to restore our Country back from the devious entities that are determined to take Her down.

1377351_10202162814702325_1067070951_n

Men and Women are on the Watchtowers.

They are informed as to what is happening.

They see the destruction of this Country unfolding before their eyes.

Courage in the face of evil is what we are all about.
